April 15 may be the day that frequently gets circled on calendars as tax day, but when it comes to local taxes, the real action happens during the summer season. Cities, counties and school districts are all now crunching

numbers to determine what property tax rates will need to be for the coming year. It is budget time, and there is no shortage of big-ticket items looming that could have major property tax implications. At Lawrence City Hall, there’s talk of a $30 million police headquarters building, at the Douglas County Court-

Is there a Dad Divide to go with Mommy Wars? NEW YORK — Hey, Mr. Mom. What’s up, Workaholic? Whether they say it out loud or acknowledge it at all, that workhome divide traditionally reserved for the Mommy Wars can also rear between dads who go off to the office every day and the kind in the trenches with the kids. There are bound to be rifts, given the growing league of dads staying home at least part time. But do the paths of work dads and home dads intertwine enough to make them care quite so deeply as the ladies? How exactly are they perceived, not by researchers or journalists, but by each other? “To be a stay-at-home dad requires a lot of confidence in who you are,” said Paxton Helms, 41, in Washington, D.C.

How Lawrence stacks up in property taxes By Chad Lawhorn

TOPEKA — Redistricting may have produced a brief surge of business for moving companies. At least a half-dozen legislators recently moved to establish residency in newly drawn districts. The strategy has produced some criticism. Caleb Correll, a Democratic candidate for the state House from Ottawa, called new Ottawan TerriLois Gregory, a Republican who had been a legislator from Baldwin City, a “carpetbagger.” But Secretary of State Kris Kobach Gregory said Gregory’s pivot into another district is permissible. He said the Legislature hasn’t imposed any time limits on how long a person must have lived in the district before attempting to run for office from there. Moving boxes were hauled out after June 7 when a panel of three federal judges issued its order, redrawing the boundaries for congressional, legislative and State Board of Education districts after the Legislature failed to fulfill this responsibility that comes every 10 years to adjust districts to accommodate population shifts. The new lines erased a halfcentury of gerrymandering and

School districts When it comes to property taxes, it is a fact school districts are the big players. State law essentially makes property taxes the only funding source available to school districts, while cities and counties both can rely on sales taxes. That makes property taxes for school districts a frequent complaint for property owners. But just how does Lawrence’s school property taxes stack up against other large-city districts?

Phantom cow hides near golf course BONNER SPRINGS (AP) — A cow has taken up residence at a northeast Kansas golf course since escaping a cattle truck accident six weeks ago. Nicknamed Bessie, the animal spends its time hiding in the woods surrounding the Sunflower Hills Golf Course in Bonner Springs, leaving behind droppings and drinking from the ponds. Try as they might, no one has managed to catch the cow. Course golf professional Jeff Johnson told The Kansas City Star that she’s “one happy cow.” Bessie also is a survivor. The cow was one of dozens being transported from a Carrollton, Mo., farm to a Kansas feed yard in late April when the truck drove off an Interstate 70 bridge. The truck tore up nearly 200 feet of guardrail, fell to the street below the bridge and burst into flames, according to the Kansas Highway Patrol. The injured driver died two weeks later. Bessie was the only cow to escape. After spending some time hiding behind a stone wall near the course, she emerged a few days later for food and water. The Bonner Springs Police Department, Wyandotte County park rangers and the course’s maintenance staff descended en masse but failed to capture her. Johnson said hoofprints suggest that Bessie seems content to hang out in the leafy outskirts of the property. “I think it’s scared of the greens,” he said. “It takes a couple steps and then it backs off.” A cattleman who is a friend of the course offered up a pen to capture the cow. The pen is equipped with a bucket of corn, water and a salt lick. “We think the deer are eating more of the corn than the cow is,” Johnson said, laughing. He added: “We think it’s running with the deer at night to keep from getting too lonely.” 609 N.H. (offices) • 645 N.H. (News Center) Lawrence, KS 66044 (785) 843-1000 • (800) 578-8748

Law professor: Tax cuts have winners, losers By Scott Rothschild

The ramifications of this are really Martin Dickinson, a something.”

Kansas University law professor and nationally recognized authority in tax law, said Saturday the tax cuts Gov. Sam Brownback signed into law will benefit the wealthy, produce revenue shortfalls and possibly prompt gaming of the tax system. Asked if the tax cuts would lead to economic prosperity, as Brownback has promised, Dickinson said the tax cuts were pushed by supply-side Brownback economists. “Personally, I’m not much of a believer,” Dickinson told a crowd of about 100 people at the Douglas County Democratic Party meeting at the Lawrence Public Library, 707 Vt. Brownback, a conservative Republican, made tax cuts the centerpiece of the 2012 legislative session. The bill he signed will cut the individual income tax rates of 6.45 percent, 6.25 percent and 3.5 percent to just two rates at 4.9 percent and 3 percent. It will also eliminate state income taxes for the owners of partnerships, S

— Martin Dickinson, a Kansas University law professor and nationally recognized authority in tax law, about the business tax changes corporations and limited liability companies. In addition, it exempts from taxes income from farms, royalties on minerals, oil, gas copyrights and patent, and real estate rental income. “The ramifications of this are really something,” Dickinson said about the business tax changes. For example, he said, in a partnership of physicians, the physicians won’t pay state income taxes under the new law, but the nurses, lab techs and clerical workers will continue to pay income taxes. Brownback has said the changes will stimulate the economy like an adrenaline shot to the heart. He said that the tax cuts will create 22,900 new jobs, give $2 billion more in disposable income to Kansans and increase population by 35,740, in addition to normal population growth.

Felines and friends gather for cat club’s annual show By Chansi Long

In a show shelter sits a white cat named Bipolar Bear, a Maine coon with a long body and a shiny coat. Owner Chris Buck scoops her out to pet her. The cat is pleased, purring. Bipolar Bear was one of 87 cats competing in Saturday’s annual Kansas City Midwest Cat Club Show at the Douglas County Fairgrounds, 2120 Harper St. “I think the day has gone really well,” said Amy Hanson, manager of the show. “We didn’t get quite the numbers we hoped we’d get as far as entries, but the competition is good.” There were four classes of cats competing: kittens (up to 8 months), purebred adults, alters (purebred adults that have been spayed or neutered) and household cats. Those competing accrue points throughout the show season by going to different shows across the country. Those points go toward awards in the region and possibly awards from the American Cat Fanciers Association Awards from ACFA are called InterAmerican awards. “Inter-American awards are what

Marci Francisco, D-Lawrence, said that even if opponents of the tax plan picked up legislative seats in the next election and were able to amend the law, “the more difficult thing is having a governor who will sign those changes.” Ed Quick, chairman of the Douglas County Democratic Party, said it may take having to elect a new governor in the next gubernatorial election in 2014. “The more people in Kansas learn about this, there will be an uprising, perhaps,” he said. — Statehouse reporter Scott Rothschild can be reached at 785-423-0668.

you strive for when you’re showing a cat,” Hanson said. Hanson started showing cats 10 years ago. Her first was in the household pet category, a rescue cat that was white with a brown tabby splotch on his back and tail. “You don’t have to have a purebred cat to compete in shows,” Hanson said. “A lot of people get involved with the household pet class and graduate into pure breeds.” There were 19 breeds at Saturday’s show. Among them was Brisa (pronounced Bree Sa), an Australian Mist, one of 12 in the United States. Gary Morke and his wife, Candy Rishavis, are her owners. Brisa had won second and third place in the kitten category. It was her first show, and she

Midwest Cat Club Show on Saturday was reacting well — a sign she’ll be showing again. “Some cats really thrive on this; they love people handling them,” Rishavis said. “I’ve got a couple at home you can’t show. .. They just don’t thrive in this environment, and we don’t show if they don’t want to come.” Most of the cats seemed to enjoy the show as much as their owners. It was only Bipolar Bear’s second show, but he was as content and comfortable as if he were at home. “He thinks this is cool,” Buck said. “It’s fun. He purrs. He likes everything about this.”

Official touts business benefits of K-7 freeway plan By Matt Erickson

LAWRENCE ARTIST STAN HERD PAINTS during Van Go’s What Floats Your Boat fundraiser. Herd then donated the painting to be auctioned off at the fundraiser, which raised an estimated $100,000 for the program.

program that helps at-risk youths. Freese, who is 18 years old, said the program taught her responsibility, determination and teamwork. She gained confidence, work experience and a family of friends. “It has changed my life,” she said. It was for the Van Go program that about 550 people gathered Saturday night at Clinton Lake Marina. Eliza Nichols, event organizer, guessed that the event had raised a record $100,000 in funds. At the event, called What Floats Your Boat, organizers auctioned off 22 different items, ranging from paintings to parasols, bird baths to benches. “I really, really like this event because it’s about the community more than it’s about Van Go,” Freese said. “It’s about getting people together and supporting a good cause.” Program participants built and painted the majority of the items, with some selling for as much as $4,100. Freese said that seeing how much people are willing to pay for art provides a boost of confidence. “It’s really cool to see your artwork being sold for that much money,” she said. While program members made many of the items, others were donated, such as a piece painted during the event by local artist Stan Herd. Herd said that he was glad to help a program

— Hailey Freese, a Van Go program participant that gets youths in touch with their artistic sides. “I am amazed at all the things Van Go does,” he said. Community donations did not stop at auction items. Local Burger donated vegetarian food for the meal, and stores like Kohl’s and Office Depot provided employees as some of the 50 volunteers who worked the evening. All of the money raised goes back into the program, located at 715 N.J. Van Go currently serves 22 people ages 14-21. All participants either live below poverty, have mental diagnoses or are specialneeds students. Much of the program focuses on woodworking, painting and mosaic creation. Van Go, which is in its 15th year, provides a social worker as well as a creative director to help participants and direct them in the creation of their art. Freese said the program teaches teamwork and how to give constructive criticism. Participants often work in teams, and those who stand out become team leaders. Freese, who has participated in the program for two years, is one of these leaders, something she says she will put on her resume when heading off to Johnson County Community College next year.

The state’s long-term plan to turn Kansas Highway 7 into a freeway may face some opposition from farther south, but a development official said Thursday that it would mean only good things for Leavenworth County. Steve Jack, executive director of the Leavenworth County Development Corporation, said at an LCDC board meeting Thursday that faster-moving traffic on K-7 would make it easier for the organization to attract new businesses. “It is important for us to have a free flow of traffic,” Jack said. One of LCDC’s struggles in convincing companies to come to Leavenworth County is alleviating their fears that it’s just too far from the heart of the Kansas City area, Jack said. Better access from the south, he said, would certainly help. “Not only do they not consider us a part of the metro area, which we do,” Jack said, “but as a part of it, we’re the part that’s too hard to get to.” In fact, later in the meeting, Jack said one prospective business, located on the Missouri side of the Kansas City area, had ruled out Leavenworth County as a new spot because it would make for too long a commute for its employees. “It would have been a great project,” Jack said.

2 inmates escape from Winfield facility WINFIELD — Two inmates have escaped from the Winfield Correctional Facility in south-central Kansas. The Kansas Department of Corrections said in a news release that 52-year-old Robert Cook and 48-year-old Frank Crutchfield were identified as missing Saturday afternoon. The 5-foot-10-inch, 225 pound Cook was last seen driving a white one-ton box truck used to transport food from a kitchen to the inmate dining room. He has convictions for burglary and theft out of Harvey County, Cowley County and Butler County, aggravated indecent solicitation out of Pratt County and an aggravated escape conviction from 1983 out of Sedgwick County. The 5-foot-11-inch, 231 pound Crutchfield is serving time for multiple burglaries, thefts and criminal damage to property out of Sedgwick County and an aggravated escape from custody in 1983 from Shawnee County.

North 200 Road is closed at U.S. Highway 59 for frontage road construction work. Completion: late 2012.

Jack spoke after two planners from the Kansas Department of Transportation gave LCDC board members an update on the K-7 plans, which have run into opposition from the cities of Bonner Springs and Olathe this year. Planner Thomas Dow said the highway was important to other communities along its path, too, as the only highway to connect Leavenworth, Wyandotte, Johnson and Miami counties. “You could almost imagine it as a spine for the Kansas side of the metro area,” Dow said. One problem, though, is that some Bonner Springs leaders think that taking out the highway’s stoplights in favor of interchanges would result in fewer visitors to the businesses along the road. Bonner Springs officials began questioning their involvement after Olathe earlier this year pulled out of a 2006 agreement with the state to support the freeway plan. Planner David Gurss told LCDC board members that Olathe could come around and support the plan with some different conditions, but even if that doesn’t happen, it would have little effect on traffic on the highway’s north end. “KDOT still has the position that a freeway is needed through the north end, even if Olathe doesn’t want to move forward,” Gurss said.

He became one about four years ago, when his daughter was 3 months old. A son followed and he now takes part-time contracts as an international development consultant, with flexible hours. His wife also works part time. “The strangest thing that ever happened to me as a (stay-at-home dad) was riding on the Metro with both my kids and a guy asking me, ‘So where’s Mom?’ I couldn’t even think why in the world somebody would be asking me that question, so I couldn’t even muster an answer,” he said.

Suspicion over wives, layoffs Other at-home dads worry about jealousy from working brethren (What are they really thinking about all that time spent with the women?). Or suspicion that they’re out of work. And dads on both sides of the divide report the occasional cold shoulder. “It seems that they try to avoid me or don’t want to talk about what life is like for them,” said dad-of-one Donald DeLong, 55, a Bloomfield Township, Mich., attorney who acknowledges a “deeply rooted need to work and ‘earn a living.’” “When I do talk to them, the topics stay guy-safe. That is, sports, cars. After all we’re both still guys. We don’t talk about that sensitive touchy-feely stuff.” Other at-home dads, those by choice or pushed out of the job market, said they’ve endured some snark, but they consider it more of a dad-on-dad discomfort than a serious divide. Martin Weckerlein, 33, is among them. He simply doesn’t have the time to care. He was a tank commander in the Germany military, then a bank worker for six years before he gave it up to be an at-home for his three kids, ages 8, 3 and 9 months. The family lives in suburban Washington, D.C., where his wife

THIS UNDATED IMAGE provided by Lionsgate shows Chris Rock, left, and Tom Lennon with children in a scene from the movie “What to Expect When You’re Expecting.” A growing league of dads are staying home, at least part time. Some at-home dads, those by choice or pushed out of the job market, said they’ve endured some snark by their working brethren, but they consider it more of a dad-on-dad discomfort than a serious divide. has a government job. “When I’m with other dads who are my age, whether they work or stay at home, they tend to be pretty accepting and even curious as to how that works that we can afford me staying home, what I do during the day with the kids, and they say it must be nice to have that time,” he said. “When I am talking with men who aren’t fathers or who are older, their questions usually focus on what my career goals are after I am done being home with my kids. They seem to assume this is only a temporary thing for our family, a pause in my career for a few years, instead of an investment in our family,” Weckerlein explained.

The stereotypes Yes, Mr. Mom comes up, the newest iteration in the shape of Chris Rock and his goofy band of dads with infants strapped to their chests in the movie “What to Expect When You’re Expecting.” It’s been nearly 30 years since Michael Keaton was that guy on screen, setting the kitchen on fire and making his kids miserable in “Mr. Mom,” but the lingering moniker feels more like yesterday for Weckerlein and other at-home dads. “I hate that phrase, Mr. Mom. I can’t imagine my wife going into the office and saying, ‘Hi everyone,

it’s Mrs. Dad,’” said Dan Zevin, a humorist, at-home dad to two and author of a new book, “Dan Gets a Minivan: Life at the Intersection of Dude and Dad.” In Boston, 32-year-old Nolan Kido is no stereotype. He’s the exhausted at-home dad of an 11-weekold daughter as his wife completes her dental education. He deferred work on his doctoral degree in accounting after doing some recession-era math: his earning power versus her earning power in the face of more than $360,000 in student loans. “At the very beginning they were a little weirded out, like what do we talk about, what’s the common themes, but now the impression that I get more is actually jealousy,” he said of his working dad friends. “It’s not, like, mean kinds of things but just, ‘Oh, I wish I could stay home’ or ‘Oh, I’d love to go to that park.’” The number of at-home dads who are primary caregivers for their children reached nearly 2 million in 2010, or one in 15 fathers, according to one estimate. Al Watts, president of the National At-Home Dad Network, believes a more accurate count is about 7 million, using broader definitions that include part-time workers. That amounts to one-third of married fathers in the U.S.

dress of an apartment that was recently leased to his school-teacher daughter. Another move that has drawn attention is in Hutchinson where veteran legislator Jan Pauls awoke June 8 to find her home had been placed in a different district than the one she had been representing. So Pauls, a Democrat, filed back in her old district using the address of a church she and her husband, Ron, had bought and were renovating. That move has been opposed by the Kansas Equality Coalition, a gay rights group that has often opposed Pauls for her political stances against homosexuals. Thomas Witt, executive director of the KEC, said Pauls is falsely claiming that she lives in the church; Pauls says otherwise, and the issue will be considered in a candidacy challenge before the State Objections Board on Tuesday. The board is composed of Kobach, Lt. Gov. Jeff Colyer and Attorney General Derek Schmidt, all Republicans. Another area of controversy that will be hashed out before the Objections Board is a challenge over Kobach’s decision to reassign about 80 candidates into different districts from the ones they had filed. This was done to match their new districts under the new maps. Some have said Kobach doesn’t have the authority to do that. John Alcala, who is running for the 57th House District, said the Republican in the race, Aimee Rosenow, filed in the 53rd District. When the maps were redrawn, Kobach placed her in the 57th District. Alcala said that isn’t right. “Election laws should be applied fairly and evenly and not based on who you know in high places,” Alcala said in a letter to Kobach. His letter included a photograph from Rosenow’s website that shows her and Kobach together at a political function.

That evening, Ziegler watched the KU men’s basketball team play in the Final Four against Ohio State with her family. “It was a great game and win; then we went to bed, and she had a rough night,” Polson said. Polson called his mother to come watch the children early the next morning because his wife was having another psychotic episode. It was the first time Joy Polson had witnessed one. “I would explain it as a catatonic state,” she said. “She was just standing and staring and saying, ‘No. No. No.’” Polson said he took his reluctant wife to the LMH emergency room in hope she would be hospitalized or receive medications, but she received neither after a mental health assessment. Instead, she went home around lunchtime with a prescription for sleeping pills and an order to call a psychiatrist in two or three days. “I felt so defeated that day because I was doing what I thought was the right thing,” he said. That day — it was a Sunday — Ziegler hung out at home and held the baby a lot. Polson had sent Coates several text messages to let her know about the situation, and she decided to let her friend get some rest. Early Monday morning, Coates received a call that there was trouble at the house. It was similar to the call she received when Ziegler had locked herself in the bedroom with her kids. “I thought, ‘OK, I’m ready. I will go over and get her to the hospital,” Coates said. But on her way, she learned that her friend had died. “I just thought we had time,” she said. “I thought we had time, and we didn’t.” !"!"!

“I’ve asked myself a million times if there was more I could have done,” Polson said. “Grieving is a long process, and I am by no means through it.” He copes by writing, reading and exercising, but it’s his boys who help him get through each day. His older sons have a full slate of summer camps and classes. In their spare time, they enjoy playing basketball, going swimming and watching movies with dad. They also help take care of Elliot, their baby brother. Polson described Owen as tender-hearted and Max as a thinker. One day Max came home after studying snakes and told his dad: “You know, baby snakes don’t need their mommies.” Those moments are tough. He said they know that their mother died in a train accident and that she wasn’t feeling well. “I’m going with the best advice I have, which is to answer the questions as they come and don’t be afraid to talk about it, but don’t force it upon them when they are not ready,” he said. Coates described Polson as a wonderful father and husband. “I’ve watched him with her through her illness, and he’s just been very loving and supportive,” she said. “I just kept thinking that a lot of men would have given up because it was so hard for so long. He just wouldn’t give up. He stood by her and tried to give her everything she needed and just loved her.” — Health reporter Karrey Britt can be reached at 832-7190.

Retiree efforts Attracting more retirees to Lawrence is a positive goal, but the idea of hiring a new staff person to pursue that goal needs to be considered as part of an overall economic development strategy.


awrence leaders are betting the city’s youthful feel might be just the attribute to draw more retirees to the community. The idea has definite potential, but city and county commissioners should think carefully about whether they want to create a new government job to oversee efforts to attract retirees. Creating a new city/county position to lead retireeattraction efforts was a major recommendation of a city/county task force studying ways to boost the community’s retiree population. It is understandable the task force would advocate for such a position. Almost any project will benefit from having an individual responsible for taking ownership of the results. But preliminary talk has suggested the new position ought to be paid for with dollars currently used to fund economic development functions. The attraction of retirees to the city should be viewed as an economic development initiative, but there already have been concerns expressed by some community leaders that current economic development funding is inadequate. If the city and county start dividing the funding pie into even more pieces, such concerns likely will grow. It is no secret that some economic development leaders have privately been talking about the need for a new sales tax or other funding mechanism to boost the available dollars for business attraction and retention efforts. Before commissioners start adding new economic development-oriented positions — such as the retiree attraction position — they ought to have a full discussion about what the future holds for new economic development funding. The prospect of attracting retirees with financial means to Lawrence is exciting. Such residents could provide a boost to Lawrence’s economy and likely would be delightful neighbors who would add to the community in many other ways, but it is the responsibility of city and county commissioners to determine how this retiree attraction effort fits into Lawrence and Douglas County’s larger economic plan and funding sources. It is important to get this right because higher taxes aren’t going to be a selling point for retirees thinking about moving to Lawrence, and higher taxes likely will be the result if commissioners choose to add positions first and plan later.


Judicial restraint is overrated WASHINGTON — Because judicial decisions have propelled American history, and because a long-standing judicial mistake needs to be rectified, the most compelling of the many reasons for electing Mitt Romney is that presidential elections shape two of the federal government’s three branches. Conservatives, however, cannot coherently make the case for Romney as a shaper of the judicial branch until they wean themselves, and perhaps him, from excessive respect for judicial “restraint” and condemnation of “activism.” In eight years, Ronald Reagan appointed 49 percent of the federal judiciary; Bill Clinton appointed 43 percent. Clint Bolick says the power to nominate federal judges has become “the grand prize in presidential elections,” because presidents now choose appointees with special attention to judicial philosophy, and because human longevity has increased. In his lapidary new book “Two-Fer: Electing a President and a Supreme Court,” Bolick, of the Hoover Institution at Stanford and the Goldwater Institute in Phoenix, notes that Reagan was especially systematic and successful in appointing judges who would not surprise him, and his successors have emulated him. Since Barack Obama appointed Elena Kagan to replace John Paul Stevens, whose liberalism surely surprised his appointer, Gerald Ford, the court’s liberals

George Will

Although Hamilton called the judiciary the ‘least dangerous’ branch … it is dangerous to liberty when it is unreasonably restrained.” are all Democratic appointees, the conservatives all Republican appointees, and both cohorts frequently are cohesive in important cases. The average tenure of justices has grown from eight years in the young Republic to 24.5 years today. There have been four presidencies since Reagan’s, but two of his Supreme Court appointees, Antonin Scalia and Anthony Kennedy, still serve. Of the dozen justices confirmed since 1972, only one, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, was 60 when appointed. If Clarence Thomas, who was 43 when nominated, continues to the same age as the justice he replaced (Thurgood Marshall, 83) he will serve 40 years, eclipsing the court record of 36 (William Douglas). Since Thomas replaced

Marshall 21 years ago, no appointee has altered the court’s balance: Four liberals replaced liberals and two conservatives replaced conservatives. Today, however, two conservatives (Scalia and Kennedy) and two liberals (Ginsburg and Stephen Breyer) are in their 70s. So if Obama wins he may be able to create a liberal majority; if Romney wins he may be able to secure a conservative majority for a generation. And, Bolick hopes, a conservative majority might rectify the court’s still-reverberating mistake in the 1873 Slaughterhouse cases. It then took a cramped view of the 14th Amendment’s protection of Americans’ “privileges or immunities,” saying these did not include private property rights, freedom of contract and freedom from arbitrary government interference with the right to engage in enterprise. This led in the 1930s to the court formally declaring economic rights to be inferior to “fundamental” rights. This begot pernicious judicial restraint — tolerance of capricious government abridgements of economic liberty. One hopes Romney knows that on today’s court the leading advocate of judicial “restraint” is the liberal Breyer, who calls it “judicial modesty.” Contemporary liberalism regards government power equably, so the waxing of the state seems generally benign. Yet Romney promises to appoint “restrained” judges. If, however, the protection of liberty is the court’s principal

purpose, it must not understand restraint as a dominant inclination to (in the language of Romney’s website) “leave the governance of the nation to elected representatives.” Such as those elected representatives who imposed Obamacare’s individual mandate? Or those representatives who limited (with the McCainFeingold law) the freedom of political speech of persons acting as individuals? Or those who limited (with the law Citizens United overturned) the speech rights of people associated in corporations? “When courts fail to enforce the Constitution,” Bolick writes, “typically they say that the proper recourse is through democratic processes — which offers hollow comfort given that presumably it was democratic processes that created the constitutional violation in the first place.” As Madison warned: “Wherever the real power in a government lies, there is the danger of oppression,” and in this nation “the real power lies in the majority of the community.” Although Hamilton called the judiciary the “least dangerous” branch because it has “neither force nor will, but merely judgment,” it is dangerous to liberty when it is unreasonably restrained. One hopes Romney recognizes that judicial deference to elected representatives can be dereliction of judicial duty. — George Will is a columnist for Washington Post Writers Group.

Transition in Egypt won’t be easy CAIRO — Khairat el-Shater, the leading strategist of the Muslim Brotherhood, offered a stark warning last Tuesday as he prepared for this weekend’s final round of the presidential election: Egypt can make its transition to a new order the easy way, or the hard way. What’s ahead definitely is not going to be easy following Thursday’s court ruling that will dissolve Egypt’s new parliament, dominated by the Brotherhood, and allow a symbol of the old regime to challenge the Brotherhood’s candidate in this weekend’s polling. The easy way, in Shater’s view, would be for Mohamed Morsi, the Brotherhood’s candidate, to win a fair election, unclouded by the legal uncertainties that emerged Thursday. In that case, Shater promises a broad unity coalition, a free-market “renaissance,” a pitch for foreign investment, and a gradual transition away from the police state created by deposed President Hosni Mubarak. Shater was conciliatory when he talked about a Brotherhood victory. “Egypt is too big a responsibility for one group to lead it. It has to be a coalition,” he asserted. He didn’t talk about a Muslim state; indeed, the word Islam barely surfaced in the 90-minute conversation. Yet the conversation was scary when he talked about what would happen if the Brotherhood should lose.

David Ignatius

‘The coming revolution may be less peaceful and more violent’ than the one that toppled Mubarak, Shater predicted.”

But turmoil is ahead for Egypt, he says, if Ahmed Shafiq, a hard-lined former prime minister, appears to win Sunday’s runoff. I say “appears” because Shater was already accusing Shafiq of “soft-rigging” the polls before Thursday’s court ruling. And he made a not-sosubtle prediction that if the Brotherhood’s rival should win, there will be violence. The Egyptian people “will not accept Shafiq as president,” he said flatly. “From the first day of the announcement, people will be back to Tahrir Square. If the choice of the people is to protest, we will join the people.” He warned that foreign countries shouldn’t make quick moves to recognize Shafiq. “The coming revolution may be less peaceful and more violent” than the one that toppled Mubarak, Shater predicted. “It

may be difficult to control the streets. ... Some parties, not the Muslim Brotherhood, may resort to further violence and extremism. ... When people find that the door to peaceful change is closed, it is an invitation to violence.” Many Egyptians in the middle — unenthusiastic about either the Brotherhood or the return of the old guard — were preparing for this weekend’s election with a sense of dread. Hani Shukrallah, a prominent journalist who edits Ahram Online, offered a description I heard several times here: “It’s a choice between cholera and the plague — between a Muslim state and a police state.” The Obama administration, which has made a huge bet on the Egyptian revolution, is preparing for both outcomes. If Morsi wins, Washington will rush a quick package of economic aid, knowing that he must show economic progress. If Shafiq wins, the U.S. expects a tough crackdown on street protestors, and will work to keep the confrontation from becoming too bloody. The White House, perhaps surprisingly, thinks a Morsi victory would be the best for Egypt’s economic transition though it would raise some prickly foreign policy issues. The future of parliament is a wild card. Some analysts are forecasting legislation by military edict until a new parliament is elected; others aren’t so sure. But the likeli-

hood of renewed violence in Egypt increased sharply after the court ruling. Shater may be the Brotherhood official Washington has cultivated most, seeing him as the likely power behind the mild-mannered Morsi. He’s a big, imposing man with a bushy beard and a voice that rises almost to a shout when he warns about the dangers of a Shafiq victory. His description of the Brotherhood’s economic plans is straightforward and fairly sensible. He knows that Egyptians have to get back to work after the yearlong upheaval that followed the revolution, and he said that a combination of better social-welfare measures and pressure from individual members of the Brotherhood in the factories will stop the strikes. He knows, too, that Egypt needs foreign capital, and the new government plans to work with the International Monetary Fund and private investment banks. But all that may be on hold, with dissolution of the parliament. On foreign policy, Shater offered a hint of conciliation when he says the new government would be ready to keep on some top intelligence officials, who have won high marks from their counterparts in the U.S., Israel and Europe. But this, too, is probably less likely in the polarized situation following the court ruling. — David Ignatius is a columnist for Washington Post Writers Group.

Humble mentor deserves spotlight Gospel of Luke, chapter 14, verse 11, reads, “Whoever exalts himself will be humbled and whoever humbles himself shall be exalted.” Lafayette Norwood, a successful basketball coach at the high school, college, junior college and AAU levels, and a winning golf coach at Johnson County Community College, no doubt knows this because he is an “avid reader of the Bible,” according to someone who would know. Norwood also embodies that message every day of his life, said the same person. Naturally, it would be a verse from chapter 14 from the book Norwood reads repeatedly that would capture him best, and of course it’s the No. 14 tee box at Alvamar Country Club behind which Norwood lives. For decades, Norwood and the most decorated No. 14 in Kansas University basketball history, Darnell Valentine, have been inextricably linked. In KU’s record books, Valentine ranks No. 1 in steals (336), No. 5 in assists (609) and No. 6 in points (1,821). A member of the 1980 Olympic team, three-time Academic All-American, four-time All-Big Eight selection, 1981 second-team Associated Press All-American and first-round draft choice of the Portland Trail Blazers, he shares the credit for every one of those accomplishments with the man he considers more than his former basketball coach. “He’s been a surrogate father for me,” Valentine said Saturday. “There’s not much I can reflect on in this lifetime that hasn’t involved him, either directly or indirectly.” Valentine came to Lawrence from his home in Portland, Ore., this week to partake in Friday night’s Rock Chalk Roundball Classic that benefited three local families fighting cancer. “And then for it to fall when I could spend part of Father’s Day with coach, it was just perfect timing,” said Valentine, whose jersey was retired in 2005. Norwood was Valentine’s head coach at Wichita Heights High and assistant at KU in addition to being a lifelong mentor. Valentine contacted me through mutual friend Mike Easterday in hopes he could share with the community his belief that Norwood is “a treasure, a secret that’s quietly kept. I wanted him to get a little acknowledgment, even though he’s the last one to want to attract any attention to himself.” How cool is that? As is the case on every one of his trips to Lawrence, Valentine’s staying with his coach. “I’ve got my room and if there are other guests, he has them move to another room or to a couch because that’s my room,” Valentine said. It’s been a tough couple of years for Norwood, 77. He lost his wife of 56 years, Betty Ann, in 2010, his son, Seth, 42, in 2011. “His testimony is so strong,” Valentine marveled.

TIGER WOODS, IN BACK, AND JIM FURYK WALK OFF THE 17TH TEE during the third round of the U.S. Open Championship golf tournament on Saturday at The Olympic Club in San Francisco. Woods, who was tied for the lead at the start of the day, fell five strokes behind Furyk, a co-leader with Graeme McDowell.

Tiger falters; Furyk, McDowell lead The Associated Press

SAN FRANCISCO — Graeme McDowell and Jim Furyk won the battle of par Saturday at the U.S. Open. Tiger Woods lost a lot more than that. McDowell showed the kind of fight that won him a U.S. Open two years ago down the coast at Pebble Beach. He scratched out pars and finished with a 4-foot birdie putt that gave him a 2-under 68 and a share of the lead going into the final round at The Olympic Club. “Probably for the first time this week, I actually enjoyed the round of golf,” McDowell said. Furyk, also bidding for another trophy from golf’s toughest test, outclassed Woods in the final pairing with key bun-

The golf course will take its effect on a bunch of people. And the guys that go out there and deal with the conditions and the situations the best ... have an opportunity to win the last few holes.” — U.S. Open co-leader Jim Furyk ker saves and an 8-foot birdie putt on the 17th for a 70, making him the only player who has yet to have a round over par. They were at 1-under 139, the only survivors against par. “Obviously, I like being up front in the position I’m in,” Furyk said. “The golf course will take its effect on a bunch of people. And the guys that

go out there and deal with the conditions and the situations the best ... those are the guys that are have some success and have an opportunity to win the last few holes.” Woods sure didn’t look like one of those guys in the third round. Wearing a key lime shirt, he turned in a lemon. He fell out of the lead with two bogeys in the first three holes, couldn’t make a birdie on the stretch of holes that Olympic allows players to make up ground, and ended with a sloppy bogey on the 18th for a 75. Only eight players had a higher score. It matched Woods’ worst score when he at least a share of the lead after any round of a major. He also closed with a 75 in 2009 at the PGA Please see U.S. OPEN, page 8B

Florida International University basketball coach Isiah Thomas traveled to his hometown of Chicago last fall to land one of the recruiting sleepers in the Class of 2012 — Marshall High combo guard Milton Doyle. “Isiah loved him right away,” Marshall coach Henry Cotton said, referring to the basketball Hall of Fame point guard, who garnered an oral commitment from the 6-foot-4, 185-pound Doyle the first week of Doyle October. FIU fans will never get to see what the NCAA champion out of Indiana University and two-time Detroit Pistons NBA title winner saw in Doyle, who decommitted after Thomas’ firing on April 6. Doyle has since signed a financial aid agreement with Kansas University and is expected to start summer school classes Monday. “Fast,” Cotton said, asked to describe Doyle, who averaged 19 points, eight rebounds, five assists and five steals a game his senior season. “Dunks, crossing over, breaking (players) down, pulling up. I’ve seen him do it all,” Cotton added in a Saturday phone conversation with the Journal-World. “He can shoot the three, shoot deep, get to the basket, has a mid-range shot. “He’s a very good distributor. He can do things ... take over when he needs to, make plays when he needs to.” Cotton said Doyle’s only weakness is his slight frame, which can improve once he hits the college weight room. “Once he puts some weight on, a couple pounds, that’ll be it,” Cotton said, noting Doyle played point guard and shooting guard at (24-8) Marshall, where he earned second-team allstate honors. “You put some weight on him and the sky’s the limit.” Cotton said personalitywise, Doyle is “a quiet kid, a very humble kid. It’s a great fit. They (KU fans) are going to love him there. I’m really excited for him.” Please see BASKETBALL, page 4B

KANSAS CITY ROYALS’ MIKE MOUSTAKAS RUNS TO FIRST during a baseball game against the St. Louis Cardinals on Saturday in St. Louis. Moustakas tied a career high with four RBIs, but the Please see NORWOOD, page 4B Royals lost, 10-7.

ST. LOUIS — The Kansas City Royals did just fine at the plate Saturday. They broke out of a recent slump, getting a season-high 14 hits and overcoming a fiverun deficit to take the lead. Matt Holliday and the St. Louis Cardinals, however, did a little better. Holliday homered and drove in five runs and Yadier Molina homered and drove in four, leading the Cardinals to a 10-7 win over the Royals. Mike Moustakas homered and tied a career high with four RBIs as Kansas City’s season high-tying four-game winning streak ended. “We put together some really good at bats,” Moustakas said. “It’s starting to come together.” Kansas City, which has scored an AL-low 244 runs,

had managed three runs or fewer in seven of its previous nine games. Trailing 6-1, the Royals rallied to take a one-run lead. “We’re going to get this thing rolling,” Moustakas said. Holliday also doubled twice and singled. Molina broke a 7-all tie with a tworun, bases-loaded single off reliever Greg Holland in the seventh inning. St. Louis won for the third time in four games. Cardinals manager Mike Matheny was ejected in the first after umpires overruled an initial call that temporarily led to a temporary triple play. With runners on first and second, Eric Hosmer hit a hard shot that St. Louis pitcher Joe Kelly snared near the ground and threw to first. After first baseman Matt Ad-

ams tossed the ball back to the mound, Kelly then threw to second for the apparent third out. But after a three-minute conference that included crew chief Dana DeMuth, the umpires ruled that the ball hit the ground. Bench coach Mike Aldrete took over for Matheny. “I saw the ball bounce,” Hosmer said. Matheny said he wasn’t arguing about the reversal. Instead, he said he was upset that the umpires didn’t make an immediate ruling on Hosmer’s ball. “The issue was, the pitcher came up with the ball looking for a call to be made,” Matheny said. “The play was not to first base if we get a quick ruling on what it is. That was my argument.” Please see ROYALS, page 4B

Ambrose takes Sprint Cup pole BROOKLYN, MICH. (AP) — The last time anyone was this fast in qualifying in NASCAR’s top series, Richard Petty was still driving. He’s an owner now, but when Marcos Ambrose won the Sprint Cup pole at Michigan International Speedway on Saturday for Richard Petty Motorsports, the Hall of Famer was on hand to put the accomplishment in perspective. Ambrose posted a speed of 203.241 mph, the first time since 1987 the 200 mph mark was broken during Sprint Cup qualifying. “I can’t hardly remember that far back,� Petty said. “To be able

to do it on a flatter race track, not Daytona or Talladega, that is unheard of.� Ambrose made his first Sprint Cup pole a memorable one Ambrose on a day 19 drivers surpassed 200 mph on the newly paved surface at MIS. Speeds have been soaring since drivers began testing sessions, and NASCAR decided to alter the left-side tires for the race today, but that change didn’t affect qualifying. The last pole winner to break

200 mph in this series was Bill Elliott, a quarter-century ago at Talladega. Ambrose had the 11th-fastest pole-winning speed in series history. “It’s going to sound great at the bar when you have had about six too many,� Ambrose cracked. “It is good bragging rights, I will give it that.� Ryan Newman’s track qualifying record of 194.232 mph went by the wayside almost immediately. In fact, 40 drivers broke the mark, set in 2005. Petty won a pole at MIS in 1972 — at 157.607 mph. “When they redid the track and came up here testing and

said they were running over 200 mph it was blowing my mind,� Petty said. “I think the last time we even flirted with that was when they redid Atlanta and we ran 198 or 199 mph. We knew it was going to be quick but I think it was a whole lot quicker than what we thought and definitely quicker than what Goodyear was thinking.� Goodyear changed its tire recommendation Friday night, saying the high speeds caused increased left-side tire temperatures. Drivers were routinely exceeding 200 mph in practice, with Greg Biffle topping out with a lap of over 204 on Friday.

This is supposed to be a day when we honor the men who take care of their children, the men who nurture and teach their kids the difference between right and wrong and shelter and protect them from the evil and ugliness of the outside world. But on this Father’s Day, the most important story in sports is about a man and a football program that are the antithesis of what this day represents. Jerry Sandusky and Penn State University not only failed to protect hopeless, helpless children, Sandusky stands accused of sexually abusing them and Penn State of shamefully turning a blind eye to it. One after another, the alleged victims took the witness stand in recent days and tragically provided the sad, searing, grim, grotesque testimony of how Sandusky raped them — anally, orally, spiritually and psychologically. In all, Sandusky is on trial for 52 criminal counts of sexual abuse involving 10 alleged victims during a 15-year period. If you haven’t already lost all respect for Penn State, its administration and its iconic former coach Joe Paterno, I suggest you read the gut-wrenching, stomach-turning accounts of what Sandusky allegedly did to these young boys. Essentially, according to prosecutors, Sandusky started his Second Mile charity for troubled youths and set himself up as a father figure for lost boys from broken homes who desperately needed a male role model in their lives. Sandusky was the man who pretended to be their sworn protector but instead turned out to be their sexual predator. Paterno, of course, did nothing except tell his athletic director, who then proceeded to also do nothing. Sandusky, even though he mysteriously resigned as Paterno’s defensive coordinator years ago, was even allowed to keep an office in the athletic complex until police started investigating him last year. And what we have now is the most disgusting, despicable scandal in the history of college athletics, the college-football equivalent of the Catholic Church for decades covering up for clergymen who were sexually abusing children. How could this ever happen? How could this possibly be? Aren’t college-football coaches such as Paterno and Sandusky supposed to be the ultimate father figures? But on this day, Sandusky stands accused of raping young boys, while Paterno and his superiors are all accomplices. Father’s Day — a day when we honor the men who nurture and teach their kids the difference between right and wrong, and shelter and protect them from the evil and ugliness of the outside world. A day Penn State should hang its head in shame.

THIRD-PLACE FINISHER JAMES HINCHCLIFFE, RIGHT, and second-place Tony Kanaan, left, pour champagne down the back of winner Ryan Hunter-Reay after the IndyCar race Saturday at West Allis, Wis.

Hunter-Reay wins IndyCar race at Milwaukee WEST ALLIS, WIS. — As long as his boss went to the trouble of bringing IndyCar racing back to the Milwaukee Mile, Ryan Hunter-Reay figured he might as well bring home the winner’s trophy. Hunter-Reay took the lead from Helio Castroneves on the 142nd lap, didn’t cough it up on a couple of restarts and held on to the IndyCar race Saturday at the Milwaukee Mile. It was a doubly sweet win for Michael Andretti, who fields cars for Hunter-Reay as a team owner and served as the event promoter for the race. “It really is amazing,� Hunter-Reay said. “Milwaukee has been so important to IndyCar for so long, and I think this is a huge event for Milwaukee. These two belong together. So I really thank Michael for sticking his neck out, coming back here and really doing it the right way.� It was the sixth career victory and first this season for Hunter-Reay. He also won at Milwaukee in 2004 in the now-defunct Champ Car Series, starting from the pole and leading every lap. Tony Kanaan was second, followed by James Hinchcliffe, Oriol Servia and E.J. Viso. Scott Dixon had to serve a drive-through penalty for jumping a restart and finished 11th. He questioned the penalty immediately afterward — and as it turns out, he was right. IndyCar race director Beaux Barfield acknowledged after the race that officials made a mistake. He said a failure in their timing and scoring system caused them to look at the wrong replay. What officials looked was a replay of a previous restart that was waved off by officials at the time and didn’t count. Dixon did commit a potential infraction on that restart — but he didn’t do so on the subsequent restart that ended up counting and should not have been penalized. “It was obviously the wrong call, based on the reality of the situation,� Barfield said. Barfield took responsibility for the mistake, and said Chip Ganassi Racing officials were “very gracious� when presented with an explanation. Barfield said there wasn’t anything officials can do to undo the mistake. Last year’s Milwaukee winner, Dario Franchitti, started from pole position and dominated the early stages of the race. But he fell back in the field and then spun out and hit the wall on lap 195.


Federer, Haas reach final HALLE, GERMANY — Roger Federer will face wild card Tommy Haas of Germany in a bid to win the Gerry Weber Open for a record sixth time today. The 87th-ranked Haas defeated defending champion Philipp Kohlschreiber, 7-6 (5), 7-5, on Saturday. Federer eased past Mikhail Youzhny of Russia, 6-1, 6-4, to reach his seventh final.


U.S. women defeat Sweden, 3-1 HALMSTAD, SWEDEN — Abby Wambach’s 136th career goal for the U.S. women’s team led the Americans past Sweden, 3-1, Saturday in a tune-up for the London Olympics. Wambach connected just eight minutes in, then Alex Morgan scored in the 22nd. Sweden’s Lotta Schelin scored in the 35th minute, and substitute Tobin Heath sealed the game with a header 11 minutes into the second half. Wambach’s goal came off a punt from goalkeeper Hope Solo. Heather O’Reilly won the ball in the air, nodding it to Wambach. She turned on a defender and her half-volley from 35 yards caught keeper Hedvig Lindahl out of her goal. The U.S. team will have one day of rest before facing Japan on Monday. The Japanese beat the Americans for the World Cup title last year.


Athletics release Ramirez

OAKLAND, CALIF. — Manny Ramirez is a free agent again after he asked the Oakland Athletics to release him and the team granted his request. Ramirez signed a minor-league deal with Oakland on Feb. 20 and hit .302 with 14 RBIs in 17 games with Triple-A Sacramento. He served a 50-game suspension for violating Major League Baseball’s drug policy last year, but remained in the minors when the ban ended on his 40th birthday on May 30. “It looked like he was down there for a while and I think he wanted out,� A’s manager Bob Melvin said. “He wanted an opportunity, if we weren’t going to do something, to go somewhere else.

FROM LEFT, BRUCE WEBER (KANSAS STATE), BOB HUGGINS (WEST VIRGINIA) AND TRENT JOHNSON (TCU) will be the latest men’s basketball coaches to join the Big 12 next season. Recent hires Weber and Johnson will make the transition to new schools as well as new conferences, while Huggins will be returning to familiar territory after coaching a year at K-State from 2006-2007.

Big 12’s newest coaches excited for fall By Luke Meredith Associated Press Sports Writer

First-year Kansas State coach Bruce Weber is so new to the Big 12 that he called into his first league teleconference from Champaign, Ill., as movers were packing his family’s belongings for the journey to Manhattan. Weber, West Virginia’s Bob Huggins and TCU’s Trent Johnson are the newest coaches to join the Big 12, which will lose Missouri and Texas A&M to the Southeastern Conference on July 1. In their place will be the Mountaineers and Horned Frogs. Weber, who was fired by Illinois in March after nine seasons, has been impressed with what he’s seen so far after being immersed in the Big Ten. “The success of the Big 12 as a basketball conference, a football conference, is just pretty eyeopening to be honest. Our whole staff, that’s the one thing we’ve talked a lot about,” Weber said Thursday in a call with reporters. “Comparing to the Big Ten, probably a little better athlete and maybe a little bit more open, up and down.” Huggins knows all about the Big 12, having spent one memorable season at Kansas State before jumping to his alma mater before the 2007-08 season. Huggins said that one of the changes that fans

The success of the Big 12 as a basketball conference, a football conference, is just pretty eye-opening to be honest.” — Incoming Kansas State men’s basketball coach Bruce Weber in Morgantown are most excited about in the leap from the 16-team Big East to the Big 12 will be the true round-robin schedule. It should help the Mountaineers generate some heated rivalries before long. “There were times, I think we played at Syracuse four years in a row and I think Louisville played at our place four years in a row. You don’t get to see all the teams,” Huggins said. “I don’t think you develop the rivalry like you do when you’re playing people on a home-and-home basis like we’re going to be able to do.” The coach facing the biggest challenge in moving to the Big 12 has got to be TCU’s Trent Johnson. Johnson left LSU after four seasons to take over at a school that got an invitation to the Big 12 based on its football success. But the Horned Frogs went 18-15 last season after winning just one league game in 2010-11, and Johnson sounded confident in the

program’s ability to compete in the Big 12 right away. “There’s some excitement, but also there’s a curiosity and there’s a wait-and-see approach or a wait-and-see attitude. Can we compete? Can we get it done at this level? And that’s good,” Johnson said. “I know what it’s like. I know what we’re getting into. But it’s been good, and I think people are just sitting in the back waiting. But this institution and this program athletically — it’s time. It’s time, in my take on the challenges of the Big 12.” For Weber, the offseason has been as much about recovering from his departure from Illinois as it’s been about preparing for the Big 12. In the past three months, Weber has lost the best job he ever had, gained another top-flight gig and watched his daughter get married. He won’t have much time to settle in at Kansas State either, since the Wildcats will spend 10 days on a tour of Brazil in early August. “Obviously you have a lot of emotional highs and lows within the stretch. But as I’ve said, I feel very, very fortunate to be at KState, to walk into a pretty good job with great fans, good team, good facilities,” Weber said. “When you make a transition, any coach that’s done it, it is a whirlwind.”

NBA scouts: After No. 1, draft picks tough to gauge By Broderick Turner Los Angeles Times

LOS ANGELES — And with the second pick in the June 28th NBA draft, the Charlotte Bobcats select . . . Oh, right, what about the first pick? Well, the consensus is that the New Orleans Hornets will take Kentucky big man Anthony Davis with the first overall pick. After that, the selections might get a little dicey — if only because Bobcats owner Michael Jordan has too many choices. One decision Jordan has to make is whether to trade the No. 2 pick to get more quality players lower in the draft of equal potential. It doesn’t help that Jordan hasn’t had a good history in the draft. After all, he selected high school center Kwame Brown with the first overall pick when he was a front-office executive for the Washington Wizards in the 2001 draft. That didn’t turn out too well. Lakers fans mostly remember Brown for fumbling passes in the post. Then Jordan selected Gonzaga’s Adam Morrison with the third overall pick in the 2006 draft for the Bobcats.

FORMER KANSAS UNIVERSITY FORWARD THOMAS ROBINSON SAYS he’s deserving of being a top pick in the June 28 NBA draft, but some league scouts aren’t sure that Robinson’s talent is great enough to separate him from the rest of the players in the draft Strike two. Morrison, who also had an unsuccessful Lakers run, played last season in Turkey. One major problem for Jordan is that his team needs help at a lot of positions. According to several front-office executives with NBA teams, Jordan is deciding whether to

take North Carolina small forward Harrison Barnes, Kansas power forward Thomas Robinson or Florida shooting guard Bradley Beal. “It’s a good draft, but there is just one star in this draft,” said an NBA executive, who was not authorized to speak publicly, referring to Davis. “But there are kids in this draft that could be in the league for 10 years and be nice players.” Davis is the cream of this draft. The 6-foot-10, 220-pound power forward led Kentucky to the NCAA championship by being a defensive force. One NBA scout compared Davis to Marcus Camby as a defender, saying that Davis has more upside as a scorer. While many scouts view this as a good draft, some believe that a team can get a player just as talented at No. 2 as they could get at No. 17. The Hornets have two first-round lottery picks, the first and the 10th. The latter pick came from the Clippers in the Chris Paul deal. “It’s a hard draft to make,” the NBA executive said. “You could get a guy at 25 that could be just as good as the guy you get at 17.”

Weis snags top state talents By Matt Tait

Late last week, Rivals. com released its state-bystate rankings for the top prospects in the Class of 2013, and the Kansas University football team appears to be doing quite well in the Sunflower State. According to the rankings, KU has secured oral commitments from the fourth, fifth and sixth best players in the state. Basehor-Linwood’s Ben Johnson is ranked fourth and was given three stars. The 6-foot-5, 230-pound tight end was the first in the Class of 2013 to commit to KU. Last season he caught 59 passes for 954 yards and 12 touchdowns. Bishop Miege quarterback Montell Cozart, 6-2, 180, ranks fifth and also is a three-star prospect. Cozart, who played for new KU offensive line coach Tim Grunhard last season, led the Stags to a 9-2 record and the second round of the postseason. Shawnee Mission East quarterback Jordan Darling, 6-4, 226, is the most recent KU commitment and ranks sixth on the list. Darling, a three-star QB, played at Waco Midway High as a junior and led his squad to a berth in the state title game.



Missouri (offensive lineman Clay Rhodes, ranked second) and Kansas State (linebacker Tanner Wood, ranked third) each have one commitment from the list and the other five remain undecided. They are: Emporia’s Jerel Morrow, a four-star athlete who is ranked No. 1 in the state; Mill Valley’s Skyler Windmiller, a two-star quarterback ranked seventh; Marysville’s Brady Moore, a two-star tight end ranked eighth; Mill Valley’s Coleman McCann, a two-star offensive lineman ranked ninth; and Bonner Springs High’s Tyler Howell, a twostar offensive lineman ranked 10th. According to Rivals, Morrow is the only player remaining on the list to whom KU has offered a scholarship. In all, the Jayhawks have received five commitments from this class, three from Kansas, one

Sporting K.C. blanks Toronto FC in style By Stephen Montemayor

KANSAS CITY, KAN. — The volley was as crisp and technically brilliant as could have been asked, the missing equation to what until then had been a torrent of chances without many finishes for Sporting Kansas City on Saturday against Toronto FC. In the 34th minute, defender Julio Cesar received midfielder Graham Zusi’s corner kick and sent it through for what would be the second of two scores for Sporting KC (9-3-1) in a 2-0 victory to reclaim at least a share of the Eastern Conference lead. “World class,” coach Peter Vermes said of the goal after the game. The score padded a lead initiated by forward C.J. Sapong in the 18th minute off a cross by midfielder Jacob Peterson, who started his first game for Sport-

ing KC with Kei Kamara still overseas competing for the Sierra Leone national team. Following his team’s results on Twitter, Kamara would soon read that he would be joined by Sapong atop the league’s scoring list with five goals apiece. In front of a season-high 20,488 fans at Livestrong Sporting Park, Sporting KC hosted a Toronto FC club very much in transition in its first game with new head coach, Aron Winter. For much of the first half, Toronto (1-10) conceded possession to Sporting KC, who for its part saw a number of chances by forward Teal Bunbury, Zusi and Cesar. Cesar’s goal followed a pair of easier chances that missed the mark by inches. “For me the most clear was the second one,” Cesar said. “The opportunities come when you try to

find them. Today was the most opportunities I had, and I put it in the net.” Zusi’s assist on Cesar’s goal gave him eight on the season, good for first in MLS. For much of the second half, Sporting KC had to hold of a Toronto FC side that began to string together more chances than it had in the first 45 minutes. After owning a 10-2 advantage in shots, Toronto FC stormed back with nine of its own in the second half. Still, highlighted by a beautiful kick save by goalkeeper Jimmy Nielsen in the 73rd minute, Sporting KC would keep its guests out of the net. Also missing from Sporting KC’s starting lineup Saturday was defender Matt Besler, still on the mend from appendicitis. Lawrence Olum appeared in his place for his first career start.

RBI hit. Brayan Pena followed an infield single to load the bases and Escobar poked a hit to right to give the Royals a 7-6 lead. “I was really proud of the offense, the way they stayed after it,” Kansas City manager Ned Yost said. “Down 6-1, they just kept putting together good at-bats. We battled back and got the lead, but from the seventh inning on (our pitchers) just really struggled to command the ball.” Kelly, making his second major league start,

gave up two earned runs on seven hits in 4 1/3 innings. Carlos Beltran added three hits and extended his hitting streak to nine games. He pushed the lead to 5-1 with an RBI single and Holliday followed with an RBI double. Moustakas hit his 10th homer in the fourth. He also had a run-scoring single in the first and an RBI groundout in the fifth. Notes: The Royals’ five previous games had all been decided by one run. They won four. ... Kansas

Jason Motte recorded his 14th save in 17 chances. Tim Collins (4-1) took the loss. Alcides Escobar had a two-run single in the seventh to give the Royals a 7-6 lead.

Cotton said that Doyle heard from many schools since decommitting from FIU. “From Marquette in the Big East to the Big 10 schools, ACC and Big 12,” Cotton said. ! He must qualify: Doyle, like all incoming freshmen, will not be eligible for competition until cleared by the NCAA Clearinghouse. Typically the Clearinghouse does not render final decisions regarding basketball players until late summer/ early fall with football and other fall sports the priority at this time. Doyle’s mom, Lisa Green, explained her son’s particular situation in an interview Saturday with the Chicago Tribune. She told the paper that Milton has the grades and test scores to be eligible, but he’s awaiting approval of two courses he took online because of complications following his transfer from Tilden High to Marshall High after his sophomore year. “I thought we had taken care of this at the end of his junior year,” Green told the Tribune. “We went to Tilden to get all of this settled. But most of the staff at Tilden was either fired or transferred so the papers never went to Marshall.” ! Happy Graduation Day, Anrio: Anrio Adams, a 6-3

He’s a quick leaper who showcases his superior athleticism when getting to the rim on drives and in transition. He’s shooting the basketball better than he ever has and is becoming more comfortable with the ball in his hands after finally playing extensively (missing junior season with a broken wrist).” ! Amare camp: KU senior Jeff Withey will attend the Amare Stoudemire Skills Academy for big men Thursday through Saturday in Chicago. “It’s an honor to go. It’s invitation (only),” Withey said. “I’m excited to go against some of the best players in college and high school. It’s a great opportunity.”

Heat hope history doesn’t repeat itself MIAMI (AP) — At this point a year ago, LeBron James and Dwyane Wade were using words like urgency and desperation. And that’s exactly what the Miami Heat expect the Oklahoma City Thunder to bring into Game 3 of this year’s NBA Finals. So far, this championship series has followed the same script as a year ago, with the home team winning the openWELCOME ing matchup, then TO MIAMI falling in Game 2 What: Game to lose 3 of the NBA the home- Finals c o u r t When: 7 p.m. edge. Mi- today ami took Where: Mithe sting ami of that TV: ABC into Dallas (Knology ch. last year 9, 209) and used it as fuel to Series: tied win Game 1-all 3 — and the Heat will look to ensure that trend doesn’t repeat itself when the title matchup resumes on their home floor tonight. “You’ve got the two best teams in the league right now going against each other,” Wade said Saturday, when practices resumed after a day off for both clubs. “So it’s going

to be a very tough game, but we have to find a way to win it. And it’s about taking, like I said, one possession at a time, one second, one minute at a time to make sure we reach our goal — and that’s to win the game.” A Game 3 victory assures nothing, a lesson the Heat learned the hard way last year. That win in Dallas was Miami’s final victory of the season. But there are certain truths that will come from the outcome tonight. The winner will have homecourt advantage. The winner will be two games away from a championship. And the losing club will see what appears to be an already razor-thin margin for error in this series become even more precarious. “We have no other choice,” said Thunder star Kevin Durant, the league’s scoring champion. “We lost at home. Tough loss. We’ve got to get over it, get ready for a tough Game 3. You know, the series is going to be tough. We know that. We know that. You’ve just got to be ready. It’s going to be a fun one.” By now, the Heat aren’t shy to say they’re completely exhausted about dissecting what went wrong in last year’s fi-

MIAMI HEAT’S DWYANE WADE, LEFT, AND LEBRON JAMES RUN DRILLS during the team’s practice on Saturday in Miami. The Heat are scheduled to face the Oklahoma City Thunder in Game 3 of the NBA finals tonight. nals. Still, they know the importance of not letting one loss turn into another — because when that happened against the Mavericks a year ago, there was a parade in Dallas not long afterward. “I don’t know if we were any more motivated in Game 2,” Erik Spoelstra said. “What we were was angry about our perfor-

mance in Game 1. ... You want to throw your best punches out there, and may the best team win. We didn’t throw our best punches in Game 1.” Add up the numbers from the first two games of the series, and it turns into something close to a statistical dead heat. Both teams are shooting 47 percent. Both have

made 14 tries from 3-point range (though Miami is shooting a better percentage). The Thunder have grabbed four more rebounds, the Heat whistled for two more fouls. The Thunder outscored Miami by 16 points in the paint during their Game 1 win; the Heat outscored the Thunder by 16 points in the paint during their victory in Game 2. Of course, the only stat that really matters is the one that’s identical: one win each, headed into today. And if the young Thunder were supposed to be rattled by losing the home-court edge, no one told them. “We have all the right pieces, from the best scorer in the league, most athletic point guard in the league to the best shot blocker to the best post defender, best wing defender and our bench is one of the best,” James Harden said. “This is a perfect team. We are young guns. We get it done. It has to start in Game 3.” Even their young-looking coach doesn’t sound worried about the stakes the Thunder will face. “I’ve seen all year long a group that’s always committed, that always sticks by one another, that believes in the work that we put in,” Scott Brooks said.

“And that’s who they are. It’s not going to change. They’ve always had great ability to bounce back after a tough loss and we expect the guys to come back (Sunday) night with better effort, better play and for 48 minutes.” The Heat expect the same. It’s no secret that falling short last year has been a source of inspiration throughout this season for James and the Heat, and that continues even now. And for James, one trend from last year is gone. In Game 2, he did what he was criticized for not doing against the Mavs — he closed the game, coming through twice in a one-possession situation. His bank shot with 1:26 left pushed Miami’s lead to five, and his two free throws with 7.1 seconds remaining sealed Miami’s 100-96 win. “I’m enjoying it,” James said. “I’m having fun with these first two games. I mean, this is a great opportunity for myself and for our team, for both teams. It’s a lot of fun being out there and competing at a high level, you know, the intense moment where every possession counts. That’s what it’s all about. As a competitor you have to enjoy these moments and you love these moments.”

OKC’s Westbrook not apologizing for shot volume MIAMI (AP) — Russell Westbrook leads the NBA Finals with 18 assists, which is a great sign for the Oklahoma City Thunder. He also leads the finals in shot attempts. That might not be such a great sign. Oklahoma City’s point guard has fired off 50 shots so far in the finals, which are knotted at a game apiece and resume with Game 3 in Miami on tonight. Westbrook’s shot total is four more than LeBron James has attempted for the Heat, eight more than threetime scoring champion Kevin Durant has tried for the Thunder and just two less than James Harden, Serge Ibaka, Thabo Sefolosha and Derek Fisher have gotten for Oklahoma City combined. Think Westbrook is apologizing for that? Think again. “I’m not making no adjustments,” Westbrook said. “Regardless of what anybody says or regardless of what you guys say about how I play, it doesn’t matter. You know, I’m going to play my game regardless of what happens. I’m going to go out and give 110 percent, and try to find a way to help us win the game.” When Westbrook takes 25 shots in a game — what he’s averaging in this se-

OKLAHOMA CITY THUNDER POINT GUARD RUSSELL WESTBROOK (0) SHOOTS between Miami Heat power forward Chris Bosh and small forward LeBron James during Game 2 of the NBA finals on Thursday in Oklahoma City. ries — the Thunder are 7-7 this season, including playoffs. When he takes less than 25, the Thunder are 53-16. That stat isn’t necessarily one that the Thunder are concerned about. They just say that when Westbrook is producing, they’re better, plain and simple. “It’s not deserving at all because without him we wouldn’t be here at this point and people don’t recognize that,” Durant said Saturday when asked about the criticism Westbrook takes at times. “Everybody thinks

he should be a traditional point guard like a (John) Stockton or a Mo Cheeks (now a Thunder assistant coach). There’s a lot of people that cannot be like Russ, either. We need him to play the way he plays. “The best thing about Russ is he comes to work every single day,” Durant added. “That’s what you guys don’t see, is how hard he works and how much he wants it. That’s what I love about him. He doesn’t care what people say, he’s going to play his game and we need him to play his game.” So far against the Heat,

his game has been decidedly up and down. Miami has outscored Oklahoma City 56-37 in first quarters of the two finals games. Westbrook is shooting 17 percent (2 for 12) in that quarter. In the final three quarters, the Thunder have outscored the Heat by 26 points. And in those quarters, Westbrook is shooting 47 percent (18 for 38). “We need Russell to score,” Thunder coach Scott Brooks said. “I know some of you don’t like that, but Russell is a very, very gifted, talented player, and we would not be in

this position without Russell Westbrook.” Two games is hardly a decent or fair sample size. But if the trend — slow Westbrook starts feeding into slow Thunder starts — continues, that could be a particularly big problem for Oklahoma City, especially now that the series has shifted to Miami for the next three games. “He just has to play the game,” said Fisher, the veteran who is Westbrook’s backup and confidant. “We all have to, I think, play a smarter game than what we played in particular in Game 2. But Russell is a phenomenal talent, and he just has to

trust his instincts, play his game. But that same focus goes for all of us, Russell, Kevin, James. If there’s two people covering you, somebody else is open, make the pass, and that guy will make the play.” If the Heat had their way, they would probably prefer Westbrook shoot more than Durant anyway. Westbrook is shooting 34 percent in his last seven games against Miami, but the Thunder are still 4-3 in those games. At the same time, Miami also insists there’s no magic reason why Westbrook seems to get more early looks against the Heat than Durant does. “Sometimes that’s the way the game goes, really,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. “This is a tough team to try to dictate, OK? We want you shooting the ball; we don’t want you shooting. They’re so aggressive and relentless just coming at you, they’re instinctual. That happens within the flow of the game.” And if it happens that way again in Game 3, Westbrook plans to keep shooting. “I feel like I’m doing a good job of getting better, getting my team better,” Westbrook said. “We’re in the NBA Finals now, and the more negative you hear, the better you’re doing. That’s how I look at it.”

Bucs’ Burnett wins again Rookie Lucas Harrell (6-5) had held Texas scoreless until those consecutive one-out pitches in the sixth, right after a botched rundown loaded the bases instead of getting out the lead runner. Grimm (1-0), whose contract was purchased earlier in the day from Double-A Frisco, allowed six hits and three runs over six innings. The 23-year-old right-hander struck out seven without a walk.

Interleague Pirates 9, Indians 2 CLEVELAND — A.J. Burnett became the first Pittsburgh pitcher since 1990 to win six straight starts, and Pedro Alvarez homered twice as the Pirates beat Cleveland. Burnett (7-2) gave up two runs over 6 2/3 innings. He extended the best stretch by a Pirates pitcher since Doug Drabek won six in a row during his NL Cy Young Awardwinning season. Casey McGehee homered and drove in four runs and Alvarez had three RBIs as the Pirates snapped a four-game losing streak. McGehee broke a 2-all tie with a two-run homer off Ubaldo Jimenez (6-5) in the sixth. Cleveland’s Michael Brantley went 0 for 3 with a walk, halting the majors’ longest hitting streak this season at 22 games. The last Pirates pitcher to win six straight decisions was rookie Zach Duke in 2005. He did it over eight starts to open his career 6-0. Burnett had not been successful at Progressive Field until handing the Indians their fourth loss in five games. He came in 1-5 with a 6.75 ERA in six previous starts in Cleveland. Pittsburgh

Yankees 5, Nationals 3, 14 innings WASHINGTON — Mark Teixeira hit a two-run double in the 14th inning as New York won its eighth straight game. Teixeira’s drive to the right field corner off Brad Lidge (0-1) brought home Jayson Nix and Derek Jeter in the longest game by innings played by either team this season. Freddy Garcia (1-2) pitched two innings to get the win. Rafael Soriano handled the bottom of the 14th for his 12th save, but only after allowing back-to-back one-out singles to Jesus Flores and Steve Lombardozzi. The game ended when Soriano got Bryce Harper to ground out, ending an 0-for-7 day for the Nationals’ teen sensation that included five strikeouts.

Tigers 4, Rockies 1 DETROIT — Doug Fister pitched six shutout innings in his return from the disabled list, Miguel Cabrera homered and also scored when Colorado misplayed his comebacker, and Detroit defeated the Rockies. Fister (1-3) had been out since aggravating a ribcage strain on May 28. He missed a month after sustaining the original injury in his first start of the season. Fister allowed three hits and struck out six. Cabrera hit his 14th homer in the first. He got to circle the bases in the fifth, too, thanks to a pair of misplays after he hit a grounder to the mound.

Orioles 5, Braves 0 ATLANTA — Jason Hammel pitched a one-hitter for his first career shutout, allowing only Jason Heyward’s two-out single in the seventh inning, and Baltimore beat Atlanta. There have already been five no-hitters in the majors this season, including three this month, and Hammel made a strong bid to add to the list. Hammel struck out eight and walked two, throwing 65 of 102 pitches for strikes. The Orioles have won six of seven. The Braves have lost five of six. Brandon Beachy (5-5) left the game with right elbow soreness in the fourth inning. The major leagues’ ERA leader allowed no hits and one run, struck out five and walked one. Baltimore

Ryan Ludwick added an RBI single to help the NL Central leaders move a season-best 10 games over .500 at 37-27. Bailey worked his way through several early jams and took advantage of the ample dimensions at Citi Field. Though the fences were brought in before this season, David Wright hit two of four Mets drives that were caught within steps of the wall. Cincinnati

Technology helps umpires beat heat CINCINNATI (AP) — Those summer scorchers don’t make umpires melt down anymore. Cooling technology that’s been used by the military for years has started helping umps get through those days when the temperatures flirt with triple-digits and the humidity makes handling home plate duties a sweaty job. They can wear a vest with cooling packs on the front and back, or slip a pack into a special pocket in their shirt when they’re behind the plate. They’re a lot cooler these summer days, which is no small thing. Unlike players, who can escape the sun and duck into the air conditioned clubhouse between innings, the men in black don’t get a break. “It can really be the difference-maker in finishing the game when the conditions are that difficult,” 13year veteran umpire Bill Welke said. It’s a vast improvement over the days when umpires got so dehydrated on broiling afternoons that their fingers would wrinkle. All they had back then to fight off the oppressive heat was sips of water between innings, a soaked cabbage leaf under their hat and quick dousing with ammonia water between innings. It’s especially tough for plate umpires, who have to wear that protective equipment and do more than 300 knee bends per game, making a fractionof-an-inch decision on each pitch. A clear head is needed. And there’s no time to duck into air conditioning and cool down. All major league umpires have access this summer to technology that was developed for the military during the first Gulf War. It has spread

RANDY MARSH, LEFT, DIRECTOR OF UMPIRING FOR MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL, talks with umpire Mike Muchlinski as Muchlinski wears a cooling vest prior to a game between the Reds and Pirates on June 7 in Cincinnati. into industries that involve heat, and filtered down to law enforcement and firefighters who need to stay cool to do their jobs. “This technology is not new,” said Kate Doherty, spokeswoman for HTFx, Inc., which developed the equipment. “It’s only new to sports.” The umpires were skeptical at first. There have been other attempts to adapt cooling equipment to umpires. About 20 years ago, they experimented with a liquid-filled vest that was bulky and didn’t stay cool long enough. Cooling packs would get wet and heavy as they thawed. Didn’t work.

When much of the country sizzled last summer, umpires started trying the HTFx equipment — marketed under RiteTemp Athletics — and loved it. “This stuff really works,” said Tim Tschida, a 26-year veteran and crew chief. “When I first saw it, I was like, ‘I don’t know, that sounds like a gimmick.’ The first two or three guys on the staff that used it, they couldn’t stop raving about it. They said it’s like dropping the temperature outside by 20 degrees.” Now, every umpire room in the majors has the cooling equipment, stored in a freezer for ready use. There’s a vest with pads

front and back that can be worn on the bases. Umpires’ shirts now have inside pockets for a pad with a home-plate insignia, providing a layer of cool under the chest protector. The pads can be quickly swapped for colder ones out of the freezer every few innings. There’s a cooling cap and another that umpires can sit on after the game to quickly lower their core temperature. To a fan or player, it may not seem like much. To umpires, it’s a godsend. Veteran umpires have stories about getting lightheaded in the heat and so sweaty that even the bag of baseballs attached to their waists got soaked.

“You get some scorcher days out there, I’ll tell you,” said MLB Director of Umpiring Randy Marsh, who worked major-league games for 27 years. “I’ve got some old pictures of when I worked. When you walked off the field, your uniform was completely soaked.” When Marsh started working in the majors, there wasn’t much help with the heat. Teams would soak towels in cold ammonia water that umpires wrapped around their necks between innings. Cabbage leaves soaked in the water could be tucked under caps. “I learned that from Paul Runge,” Marsh said. “He used to put cabbage

leaves in the hat. He had me do it when I worked with him. I don’t know if I noticed it, maybe psychologically. But a lot of guys thought that it worked better than the sun beating on your head.” The multipurpose stadiums with artificial turf that came into vogue in the 1970s were especially brutal. On-field temperatures at Riverfront Stadium, for example, were measured above 150 degrees. Waves of heat snaked off the field like a griddle. During one series in Cincinnati in July 1997, Greg Maddux got so hot and mentally discombobulated that he took himself out of a game after six innings. The plastic on the bottom of infielder Jeff Blauser’s cleats started to melt. Players said it burned their hands to touch the turf. “George Hendrick used to tell us when he played in St. Louis, he used three pairs of shoes,” Marsh said. “He kept two on a big bucket of ice and would change shoes every inning because it was so hot on that turf.” Umpires could get so dehydrated that their fingers would wrinkle. Sometimes, the plate umpire overheated and had to be replaced. Now, training staffs are aware of their need to keep drinking fluids. Plus, with the multipurpose turf stadiums replaced by grass fields, those blistering days aren’t nearly so bad. “When they went to grass, it made all the difference in the world,” Tschida said. The high-tech cooling packs have ramped down the heat even more. “It’s been a welcome, welcome addition to our equipment bags, that’s for sure,” Tschida said.

Abundance of no-hitters may be just chance By Sheldon Ocker Akron Beacon Journal

Five no-hitters, including a perfect game, before the middle of June? Have major-league hitters become complete wimps because they no longer can safely use steroids without getting caught? Some observers of the game think the increase in no-hitters is directly related to the testing program instituted in 2005 to stop players from using performance-enhancing drugs. But didn’t pitchers also use steroids? Sports Illustrated recently featured a story about Dan Naulty, who pitched rather unsuccessfully for the Twins and Yankees from 1996 through 1999. By Naulty’s admission, he would never have reached the

big leagues without the help of steroids. Once he got there, his body began to break down, and he discovered that he had lost his desire to play the game. Nevertheless, Naulty transformed himself from a 6-foot-6 string bean who threw in the high 80s into a behemoth that delivered fastballs at 95 miles per hour. The point is that hitters were not the only players reaping the benefits of steroids, synthetic testosterone and HGH, so I don’t think the plethora of recent no-hitters has anything to do with position players abandoning the deceitful use of illegal substances. There might not be a rational explanation, because a longer look back shows us that the

COMMENTARY frequency of no-hitters tends to ebb and flow for no discernible reason. From 1970 through 1979, there were 29 nohitters in the big leagues (excluding combined no-hitters, which are a different type of achievement). Nolan Ryan had four of those, so it might be instructive that when a future hall of fame starter is in the picture, he can inflate the number all by himself. From 1980 through 1989, there were only 13 no-hitters, including Len Barker’s perfect game in 1981. In three seasons during that decade, not even one no-hitter was thrown. The decade from 1990 through 1999 saw the

no-hit total balloon to 27, with 41 percent being thrown in 1990 and 1991. Ryan was involved again, throwing one no-hitter in each of those years. Six no-hitters littered the landscape in 1990; all were thrown by premier pitchers: Dave Stieb (against the Tribe), Dave Stewart, Fernando Valenzuela, Terry Mulholland, Randy Johnson and Ryan. Five more followed in 1991 and only 16 more for the rest of the decade. Between 2000 and 2009, the record book had to accommodate only 15 no-hitters, none in 2000 or 2005. Derek Lowe threw one for the Red Sox against the Rays in 2002. From 2010 to the present, 14 no-hitters already have been thrown, including six in 2010, which included perfect games by

Roy Halladay and Dallas Braden. Ubaldo Jimenez threw a no-hitter for the Rockies, and Halladay threw a second no-hitter for the Phillies in the playoffs. Fans and the media begin to wonder whether no-hitters are becoming devalued when journeyman starters get in on the act. Edwin Jackson joined the small group of no-hit pitchers in 2010, despite enduring a career that includes a 63-63 record and a 4.36 earned-run average. Jackson’s career-best season came not in 2010 but in 2008, when he won 14 games. Matt Garza also threw a no-hitter in 2010. No question that Garza’s arm can deliver dazzling stuff, but his inconsistency has produced a 54-59 record

and 3.85 ERA. Not bad, but far from sterling. Humber’s perfect game this year belies a career record of 13-14 and a 4.35 ERA. His best year was last season, when he was 9-9. Braden has tumbled off the earth after undergoing shoulder surgery last year. If there are discoverable reasons why the frequency of no-hitters varies strikingly from year to year or decade to decade, maybe the investigation should center on the baseballs, the umpiring, the ballparks or the weather. “It’s just life,” Indians manager Manny Acta said. “There are going to be some years when there aren’t any no-hitters.” Maybe we’re dealing with the whims of pure chance.

Players embrace new scoring appeals process OAKLAND, CALIF. (AP) — Oakland’s Coco Crisp tracked Robinson Cano’s drive to right-center. He seemed ready to make the catch — until he got caught between deciding whether to jump or stay on his feet and the ball bounced off his glove. Cano easily got into second base as New York Yankees teammate Curtis Granderson came around to score. Official scorer Chuck Dybdal ruled it a two-base error. To many at the ballpark, the call seemed routine. But the Yankees were bewildered. They filed an appeal with Major League Baseball the following day to give Cano an RBI double. And their wish was quickly granted by MLB executive vice president Joe Torre, a pattern that is being repeated much

more frequently under a streamlined appeals process for official scoring calls. “You can see it and then you can appeal,” Cano said. “It’s a good thing you can appeal, because sometimes those things, maybe can be the one that — you can hit 2,000 hits. Maybe a double, you can hit 500 doubles. Or the RBI — you can get 1,000 RBIs. Who knows? You know how hard it is to get a hit or double in this game.” Don’t forget how hard it is to pitch. The Mets took a shot at getting R.A. Dickey’s one-hit gem against Tampa Bay on Wednesday belatedly changed from a one-hitter to a nohitter. But no luck.

We didn’t expect to win it. Just gave it a try. If we had won it, we’ve got another no-hitter.” Both cases have their roots in player complaints about official scoring during last year’s collective bargaining talks, leading to a new appeals process and an effort by MLB to try to bring more consistency to official scoring decisions from city to city and scorer to scorer. Team officials are not supposed to “initiate communication” with scorers, and MLB will punish peo-

ple who “intimidate, influence or pressure” scorers into changing calls. Instead, a player or team can appeal any call to MLB within 24 hours after it is made. While baseball will not release numbers on how many appeals there have been this year, scorers, teams and players say it is up considerably from last year when 12 of 58 plays appealed under the old system were overturned. “It’s a good thing because it’s less of a distraction as the game goes on and there’s a call that, at face value, you say, ‘That’s

In the play involving Cano and Crisp on May 25 in Oakland, A’s starter Tyson Ross had three earned runs added to his ledger just hours after being sent down to Triple-A from 5.94 to 6.51 without throwing an additional pitch. “That’s unfortunate because I believe I should have caught that,” Crisp said. “That works out

Baltimore’s Nick Johnson was on the winning side of an appeal earlier this year when Torre ruled a ball Eduardo Nunez of the Yankees allowed to fall in left field on May 1 should have been a double not an error. “I like it,” Johnson said of the new process. “I think it’s going to work well. Just another set of eyes to take another look at it. You hear back from them in two, three days and go from there.” Minnesota scorer Stew Thornley said he has had calls overturned on appeal and likes the new process better than the confrontations with players or team officials that used to be more frequent.

Westwood in hunt for first major title The Chicago Tribune

SAN FRANCISCO — Lee Westwood has nine topfives in major championships. So, yes, you could say he’s due. “Every time you get yourself in contention, you learn something new,” he said. “But the main thing is to believe I’m good enough. I must be if I keep getting myself in contention often enough.” He surged into the mix Saturday with a 3-under 67 capped off with a 30foot birdie putt on the 18th hole. “I had a lot of fun out there,” said Westwood,

who sits at 2 over, three strokes off the lead. Westwood, 39, has yet to win a major. But he insists he’s not stressed about it. “After you’ve been doing it for 20 seasons, it’s time to relax and give yourself a break and enjoy it,” he said. “You look at people’s faces and they’re looking pretty wound up and stressed, aren’t they? There aren’t many smiles, which is a shame because it’s one of the biggest tournaments of the year and one I would assume everybody looks forward to. “All I’m trying to do is get into contention and

see if I can finish it off and have a bit of fun doing it.” ! Timely three: Ernie Els was beaming after an eagle on the 17th hole. His 2-under 68 leaves him in position to contend at 2 over. Els chipped in from 50 yards with his third shot on the 502-yard hole. “That shot is what dreams are made of,” he said. “I’m really pleased. “I was pin high, and the green angles toward you. I was in the fringe there with a beautiful lie. It’s one of those one-in-athousand shots.” ! In the hunt: Retief Goos-

en and Martin Kaymer have several things in common: They’re international players, major winners and lurking at 4 over after shooting 69 in the third round. Kaymer, who won the 2010 PGA Championship at Whistling Straits, is known for having one of the game’s most reliable left-to-right shots. “Well, it used to be the cut,” he said. “Now I’m pretty straight, but I can hit it both ways, which is nice.” Goosen, who won the 2001 (Southern Hills) and 2004 (Shinnecock) U.S Opens, said “the greens are getting a little like Shin-

necock. If I can keep hitting fairways and greens (Sunday) and give myself a few (birdie) chances, you never know.” ! Low-key birthday: Phil Mickelson turned 42 Saturday, marking the occasion with his second 71. In what has become almost an Open tradition, fans serenaded him with “Happy Birthday” as he was on the 18th green. After a long slog through Olympic, though, Mickelson wasn’t in the chirpiest of moods. “It’s a long, difficult day, even though it’s my birthday,” the Hall of Famer said. “It was very flatter-

ing from the fans. Thank you.” ! Tap-ins: The Open will hold the line in payouts this year, confirming an $8 million purse with the eventual winner collecting $1.44 million. All four majors currently stand at the $8 million level. ... ESPN scored its highest rating for a regulation Open round Friday, drawing 3.6 million viewers for its 5-10 p.m. telecast. The network’s only higher rating came from the first two hours of the 2008 Tiger Woods-Rocco Mediate playoff, which drew 4.8 million.


Championship when he lost a two-shot lead to Y.E. Yang. “I’m just going to have to shoot a good round tomorrow, and post early and see what happens,” Woods said. All was not lost for Woods, not to mention another dozen or so players. In a U.S. Open that has lived up to its reputation this week, it was difficult for anyone to get too far ahead. McDowell and Furyk were two shots ahead of Fredrik Jacobson, who had a 68. Another shot behind was a group that included Lee Westwood, whose Saturday-best 67 gave him another shot at his first major; and Ernie Els, who holed a long pitch for eagle on the 17th that carried him to a 68. The Big Easy is a twotime U.S. Open champion, with that first title coming 18 years ago. “Experience helps around here,” Els said. “For some reason, I’m patient again this week and that’s been kind of my virtue in major championship golf, the ability to be patient and wait it out. And I think you’re going to have to do that tomorrow.” Thirteen players were separated by four shots going into today, a list that includes 17-year-old Beau Hossler, who followed bogeys with birdies for a 70. Woods, who has never won a major from behind, was five shots back. His round ended with a shot from the middle of the 18th fairway that hung up in the right collar of rough, and a stubbed chip that took a hard turn to the left some 10 feet away. When he two-putted for his sixth bogey, his day got a little worse. Climbing the hill toward the fabled clubhouse at Olympic, a photographer brushed past him and Woods banged his hand into the camera. He shook it several times, but later said he was fine.

AMATEUR BEAU HOSSLER ACKNOWLEDGES THE CROWD as he walks up the 18th fairway during the third round of the U.S. Open. Hossler fired an evenpar 70 on Saturday at The Olympic Club in San Francisco and is four shots out of the lead. The real hurt came from Olympic. “It was just a tough day on the greens, and most of the day, I just kept getting that half-number, right in between clubs all day,” said Woods, who was either well long or short on his approach shots. Furyk, the only player who has not had a round over par in this championship, and McDowell played together in the opening two rounds. Both are similar players who appear to be a good fit for Olympic — control off the tee and a strong fight to avoid bogeys. McDowell referred to Furyk as a “plodder,” which at the U.S. Open is a high compliment. “It doesn’t have to look or be fancy. It has to work,” Furyk said. “And

I think we have styles of games where we put the ball into play, we put the ball on the green and take our chance at the putt and then move on.” But this was not shaping up as a two-man race for McDowell and Furyk. “Looking at the leaderboard, you’ve got to look down as far as the guys at 3 or 4 (over) as having a realistic chance of winning this tournament,” McDowell said. That includes some regular characters, such as Westwood and Els and even two-time U.S. Open champion Retief Goosen, who was five shots behind. And it features newcomers to this stage like Nicolas Colsaerts, the big hitter from Belgium — and even a high school kid.

For every bogey Hossler made, he answered with a birdie on the next hole. His only big blunder came on the 11th, when he was too aggressive with a downhill putt and missed his par putt from 6 feet. Two holes later, he hit a heavy chip from the hazard that rolled back down a slope for another bogey. The kid just wouldn’t go away, though, and suddenly he is dreaming big. Hossler wanted to make the cut. Then, he wanted to be the low amateur. Now? “My goal now is to win the tournament,” he said. In the 14 majors he has won, Woods was never worse than par in the pivotal third round and had a scoring average of 68.3. There was no way that was going to hold up on a course like Olympic, though Woods was expecting better than what he delivered on this Saturday. He missed the first fairway, came up short of the third green and wound up with three bogeys through six holes.

Woods wasn’t alone in making mistakes. David Toms, tied for the secondround lead with Furyk and Woods at 1 under, played that rugged six-hole stretch in 5 over and fell six shots behind with a 76. Even with the USGA watering the course Friday night and Saturday morning, Olympic was as relentless as ever. But it wasn’t impossible. Westwood showed that, as did Els, who called it as easy as the course played all week. Kevin Chappell, who tied for third last year to earn a spot in this U.S. Open, had a 68 and takes an unthinkable streak of 24 holes without a bogey into the final round. He was at 3-over 213, along with Webb Simpson, who also had a 68. Asked if the experience at Congressional would help, Chappell gave an apt description of what awaits today. “Last year we were trying to make birdies in the U.S. Open,” he said. “And here, you’re just trying to survive.”

Westwood came in right behind Chappell, and while he failed to take advantage on the par 5s, he finished in style with a 40-foot birdie putt on the 18th for a 67. Westwood began this week as the third wheel in a powerful threesome of the top players in the world ranking. Luke Donald, the world No. 1, and defending champion Rory McIlroy have gone home. Westwood now has another chance to pick up his first major. He twice has missed a playoff by one shot, in the 2008 U.S. Open at Torrey Pines and the 2009 British Open at Turnberry. He twice as been runner-up in the majors. A win today would end that heartache, and return him to No. 1 in the world. “I think I’ve probably been in contention in major championships more than anybody else over the last three or four years,” Westwood said. “So I’m looking forward to tomorrow and hopefully go out and have some fun and see what happens.”

Exactly what makes it that depends on who you talk to, one more testament to Davis’ skill and the break he caught when four days of dry, sunny weather and light breezes made the course play just as firm and as fast as he envisioned. “It just goes to show that firm greens scare the life out of professional golfers,” Padraig Harrington said. “Off the tee, it’s the most demanding,” Jordan Spieth said. “You’re trying to place a drive out there that’s going to carry 275 and land it in a 10yard space.” “It’s the reverse cambers,” McIlroy said before departing. Right. Whatever those are.

Robinson savoring summer in Lawrence By Gary Bedore

Russell Robinson, who has played professional basketball in Spain and Turkey the past two seasons after a stint in the NBA Developmental League, says he’s thoroughly enjoyed competing overseas. “The money is good. The competition’s good everywhere in Europe,” said Robinson, starting point guard on Kansas University’s 2008 NCAA championship team. There’s been one huge drawback to earning sixfigure paychecks, however. “I miss home. That’s the biggest thing,” said Robinson, a 26-year-old native of New York. “I get away and enjoy it a little bit, but then I get homesick.” The 6-foot-1, 195-pounder returned from a sixmonth stay in Trabzon, Turkey in mid-May. He spent a few weeks with family members in New York, before heading to Lawrence on Thursday for the Rock Chalk Roundball Classic charity basketball game — one in which he scored 21 points off 7-of-17 shooting. He hit five threes. “I’ll be here two weeks. I booked a one-way flight here. Maybe I’ll stay longer,” said Robinson, who plans on working out with KU’s current players, who are in town for summer school. “I love to come back any chance I get. It’s always good to be around some love. With KU fans, you feel a lot of love,” Robinson added. He averaged 13.4 points (off 47.8 percent shooting), 3.2 assists and 2.1 steals a game last season for Turkish League team Trabzonspor. “I had a couple minor things that nagged me,” said Robinson, who

Robinson, who has played overseas the past two seasons, said he’ll be in Lawrence for at least two weeks this summer while he weighs his options for the fall. missed several games because of a dislocated thumb and sprained knee. “That whole tournament run saved my season,” he added of the Jayhawks advancing to the national title game in the NCAA Tournament. “(Because of the injuries) I was a little stressed out over there. Watching them on TV ... seeing the guys do so well helped me so much.” He wasn’t surprised the Jayhawks stormed past

And coach (Bill) Self, who is a great coach,” Robinson said in an interview at Self’s Parent-Child camp on Friday. Robinson plans on playing in Wednesday’s Bill Self camp alumni game

while finalizing plans for next season. “I’ve got some things on the table now,” Robinson said. “The NBA ... I’m still trying to do that. If it doesn’t work out, I’ll go back over there (Europe). I’ve done (NBA) summer league four years. I’ve played for a lot of teams. We’ll see if that’s an option. “Europe is always an option for me. I could always go back to the DLeague. We’ll see.”

FAME Liberty Hall celebrates a century of bringing community together

By Sara Shepherd


.D. Bowersock surely never envisioned his elegant Beaux-Artsstyle opera house with a Plexiglas dance floor and disco lights, people crammed shoulder-toshoulder while Ike and Tina Turner rocked the stage, or even harboring unorthodox Christmas trees in its every nook and cranny. In the last 100 years, the building now called Liberty Hall has changed names and motifs but rarely strayed from its identity as a community gathering place.

Liberty Hall’s current owners, David and Susan Millstein, of Baldwin, see the building at Seventh and Massachusetts streets as more than just a business. “We feel the same way that Bowersock felt about it,” David Millstein says. “You always need a place for entertainment and community, and we’re here to fulfill that.” Please see LIBERTY, page 5C


Newly constructed Bowersock Opera House opens, called “the finest theatre for any town the size of Lawrence” by the Lawrence Daily Journal-World


Motion picture equipment installed to show occasional films in addition to live performances


Theater changes hands, contest held to rename it. The Jayhawker is chosen because of the venue’s close association with Kansas University (KU drama performances and other events had been held on the site since the 1800s).


Jayhawker hosts world premiere of “Dark Command.” The film, starring John Wayne, was set in Lawrence and inspired by the story of Quantrill’s Raid.

At 43, Steven Drozd is the young Flaming Lip. In a band with a Grammy-winning, innovative psych-freak-reputationgaining, 20-year-plus career, Drozd is a talented multi-instrumentalist widely known to be the musical backbone to the group, the person who can take wild and wonderful frontman Wayne Coyne’s wacky ideas and help structure them into beloved songs. Drozd grew up in Houston, his father a semiprofessional polka musician. In his early 20s, already an accomplished drummer, he moved to Norman, Okla., where he met Coyne.

Minister’s training can be beneficial but not necessary for marriage The Rev. Kent WintersHazelton, pastor, First Presbyterian Church, 2415 Clinton Parkway: The practice of online (or mail-in) ordination offers both benefits and the potential for abuse. Traditionally, ordination, proffered within a religious tradition or denomination, allows one to conduct religious rituals and service within that tradition’s practices, some of which are recognized by civil law (i.e., weddings). My colleagues in ministry receive extensive training to become eligible for ordination. That training includes seven years college and graduate-level education, psychological testing, and scores of evaluations, interviews and exams by our denominations to determine our fitness for service and ordination. Unlike the medical, legal and academic professions, there are no specific standards one must meet in order to conduct our work. Meanwhile, ordination is now offered by dozens of nontraditional channels. In my view, a minister’s training is invaluable for the work we do within our faith community’s context, but is not necessary to read the words that are part of a wedding ceremony. A friend I knew in college had completed

seminary training but did not pursue ordination. When asked if he could conduct a wedding, he Winterscontacted Hazelton the state, who advised him that they recognized ordinations by mail. He filled out the form, sent in his check and conducted the wedding. Many people have been married by someone they respected whose license to perform marriages has been issued by a nonreligious organization, often through the Internet. This practice becomes problematic when someone ordained through an online service offers professional services without any accountability. Priests, rabbis, imams and ministers are subject to their respective ecclesiastical authorities and rules of discipline; online ministers are not. Another problem occurs when the ordination is used to avoid taxes, or to establish a housing allowance tax-deduction that is provided to clergy, while not actually seeking to conduct religious services. — Send email to Kent Winters-Hazelton at fpcpastor@


Chinese acrobats swing into Lawrence A 20-person Chinese acrobatic troupe, known as the Fabulous Chinese Acrobats, will perform Monday night at Liberty Hall, with all proceeds going to the Lawrence Homeless Shelter. The show, which begins at 7 p.m., will feature plate spinning, foot juggling and team acrobatics. Tickets cost $10 for adults and $5 for children, and can be purchased at the Liberty Hall box office or online at ticketmaster. com.

Youths to perform classic comedy The Lawrence Arts Center’s Summer Youth Theater is preparing to kick off performances of the classic Depression-era comedy “You Can’t Take It With You.” The play, written by George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart, takes place in a large house occupied by the Sycamores, a slightly crazy New York family. Performances are scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday and 2 p.m. June 24 at the Arts Center. Tickets for all shows are $9.50 for adults and $6.50 for students and seniors.

the images will be thrown out of whack. Third, use elements within the photo, i.e. sidewalks, fences, houses, buildings and even people, to measure scale. If the roof line of the old photo and the current scene line up but the ground doesn’t, you’re probably too close or too far away and simply need to move a few steps and then reposition. For those of you shooting with wide-angle zooms, it seems easier to choose a focal length and physically move forward or backward rather than trying to align by zooming, but whatever works. This may not be a tip, but the images don’t necessarily have to be old or of recognizable places to be effective.

The book starts where “The Glass Rainbow” (2010) left off, with Robicheaux in the hospital recovering from his latest run-in with bad guys, and picks up the series with renewed vigor. As always, Burke’s muscular writing teeters on the edge of a purple prose canyon without ever quite falling in (the sun always seems to be a molten drop of honey in his world, the sky described in one passage as blue and hard as an inverted ceramic bowl) and his love of Louisiana is as fierce as his disgust at corporate titans whose greed puts profits a b o v e the environment.

New bio of Joyce comes up short By Mike Fischer Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

One could argue — and I would, against all comers and without reservation — that James Joyce was the greatest writer of the last century. Joyce was also the lucky subject of one of the best literary biographies of any century: Richard Ellmann’s “James Joyce,” first published in 1959 “Unfamiliar Fishes” and extensively revised by Sarah Vowell in 1982.

NEW YORK — Peter Greenberg wants you to travel like a local, not a tourist, and he’s written a new series of guidebooks to help.

E-book versions are out in July, and the next five titles in the series, New York, London, Lesley Hornberger, high school math teacher, Peru, Washington, D.C., and the “Great Cities of Lawrence Europe,” due in April 2013. “‘Narcissus in Chains’ What makes the “Like by Laurell K.

Liberty Hall location saw fires, several rebuildings before 1911 By Sara Shepherd

J. Michelle Martin Coyne/Submitted Photo

THE FLAMING LIPS, FROM LEFT: Kliph Scurlock, Wayne Coyne, Michael Ivins and Steven Drozd. The band will be performing Thursday and Friday at Liberty Hall as part of the venue’s 100th birthday celebration.


Lawrence, Drozd spoke with about the massive amount of energy and creativity needed for the band’s output, the way things change and his love for Lawrence. Alex Garrison: I know a lot of people are very excited about this concert. It’s Liberty Hall’s 100th birthday. Steven Drozd: Yeah, that’s very cool. I can’t think of the last time we played there. It’s been a couple years, at least. We played Kansas City last year, but that doesn’t count. Lawrence is its own entity. You’ve got to give it its own respect. AG: Yeah, I wanted to ask about your connection to Lawrence, given you’ve been here often and Kliph Scurlock, the Flaming Lips’ drummer, lives here. SD: Obviously, there’s that. It’s a secondary-hometown kind of show. If we play Oklahoma City, that’s a hometown show; if we play in Houston, then I know my family will come out. If we play Lawrence, we know that Kliph’s friends will all come out. But even before we had Kliph with us, we always had a special fondness for Lawrence. Lawrence was seen as a cooler version of Norman, Okla. William Burroughs lived there and that’s great — this crazy, alien-lifeforce human who lived all around the world decided to live his last 10, 15 years in Lawrence, Kan. It’s just a cool town. AG: The first time I heard about you, it was as someone was describing you as the musical genius behind the Flaming Lips. As a multiinstrumentalist, you’re well-respected and often get that praise. How does that sit with you? Do you feel comfortable with that reputation? SD: For me, I get to sort of do whatever kind of music I’d like to try under the umbrella of The Flaming Lips. Wayne is such a great mastermind and salesman to whatever we do that I feel like whatever musical ideas I ever want to try, I’ll always get to try them and use them in some way. So in that regard, it’s a satisfying feeling. Whatever we want to do, we try, and if it fails, at least we tried. I like being considered the ‘musician-musician’ of the group, I guess that’s sort of one of my roles. I think a lot of people don’t investigate the Flaming Lips, don’t think of them as being a very musical group, but if you’re a musician or a muso or a music-theory nerd, if you start to dig into our music and analyze it, you’d be surprised that there’s really a lot going on there. So I like that we’re this reckless and wild psychedelic band, but underneath that there’s this music going on. And we try to do well by it. If I’m considered responsible for that in any way, then, of course, I’ll take the credit. (Laughs.) AG: So how do you guys work together as a band? SD: There is this preconceived notion that I played all the instruments, but that’s just not true. On “The Soft Bulletin” record, I played most of the parts but by no means all. I like the way that we work together is that we build on each others’

CONCERT INFO What: Liberty Hall 100th birthday bash featuring The Flaming Lips and Deerhoof When: Thursday and Friday. Doors open at 7 p.m.; show begins at 8 p.m.; tickets are sold out. On Friday night, a free street party with a video screening of the concert with be held on Seventh Street between Mass. and New Hampshire. strengths. We can have a song with a melody but no words, and Wayne could craft the lyrics to give it its meaning. Likewise, we might have a song that has its chord changes and melody and it’s in place, but it needs to go some other place and do some other thing. That’s where I would come in and help. Sometimes, we’d write together from the very beginning. I like working all different ways. I like sitting at a piano and writing Elton John-kindof pop songs or sitting at a drum kit and thinking, ‘Oh, it would be cool if we could base the song on this beat.’ For me, as a quote-unquote musician, it’s great for me to be able to do all these different kind of things. AG: The Flaming Lips is known as much for music as for your visual extravaganza live shows and antics like releasing a six-hour song with names of people who donated to a humane society as lyrics. How do those ideas get generated? Do you focus more on the music itself and Wayne is the ‘packaging’? SD: Wayne and this guy Wayne works with, George Salisbury, he does the videos and graphics, and any time something’s released, they sit down and hatch the scheme on how it’s going to be released. So it’s really those guys and their team of people who make sure those things evolve, and mostly it comes from Wayne’s imagination. Really, it’s just music with me. It’s not that I’m asked to and don’t help, or that I don’t want to; it’s that these things just happen so fast. While you can be worried about the music in this corner, in the other corner, three video treatments are being plotted at the same time and this release that comes in this skull, and so many things are happening all at once and we just never sit down and discuss — it’s just always being thrust forward. The live shows, it seems that it changes with the years. I think next we’ll still have the videos, but there will be some different color schemes and some different looks on stage to fit this new mood of music we’re doing. It’s always mutating. AG: What’s it like having so much activity in your life? Is it difficult to keep up and keep going, emotionally or creatively? SD: The only thing that really beats me down is having to leave home and my family. So if it wasn’t for that, I would be able to handle all of it. We’re kept so busy, you don’t really get time to contemplate. The touring schedule is sometimes too much for me, but I’m getting better at it. I think, ‘Wow, two years? In two years, we’ve put out this much material. That’s crazy.’ Where it used to be that you’d only put out an album

every two years and that was it. I don’t know if it’s welcomed by the fans. I don’t know if people think we’re doing too much or if people are like, ‘do more stuff.’ But for us, it’s fun. We never get the chance to get bored. AG: Getting back to your history, I know you come from a pretty musical family and were playing quite young. Did music look like a way out to some kind of better life for you as a kid? SD: I never saw it as a ‘way out;’ it’s just what I’ve always wanted to do, since I was 8 years old. It was almost a practical thing. I could help bring in money for my mom and dad, help pay the bills. We were a poor family, so it helped, but I really, really loved it. After a couple of years playing drums, I was interested in playing piano, so I taught myself. I was rewarded pretty early on — I could pick things up pretty quickly, so I never got frustrated and kept on. But, you know, the rock star you imagine when you’re 8 years old is quite different from the person you end up being at the age of 43. But when I was 8, I wanted to be in KISS or something. I started playing professionally when I was 10. In a couple years, I started to see the reality of how grim it can be. Playing American Legion dance halls at 2 o’clock in the morning, hanging out with old drunks, playing country music. It’s exciting for about a month. But when you’re an 11-, 12-year-old kid, it gets pretty [expletive] boring pretty quick. (Laughs.) So on the flip side — there was KISS in my imagination and then there was the reality of guys who’ve been playing music for 30 years and this is just what they do. I got to see that at an early age. By the time I got into my early 20s, I’d become, in some ways, an old hack. But I’d never been in a band who made their own music and that was my quest. Luckily, I found The Flaming Lips. We found each other. And the way it works now, it’s so far beyond even my 18-yearold imagination for what a rock band could be. AG: The Flaming Lips have had several serious shifts in sound and genre over the years. Is it that high pace of activity that pushes you to evolve? SD: Fortunately, we get bored. And more to the point, by now, people expect us to change. That’s great, because a lot of bands, they put three or four records out, and everyone wants that same trip over and over again. Or they think they want that same trip, so the band does it. I think it forces us to keep making left turns and evolving. I don’t think there’s ever been a shift that was so radical that people were like, ‘Oh my God, what have they done?’ Well, maybe the shift to “The Soft Bulletin.” But we’ve never mutated so much it turned a corner. Even if we did, our fans would be fine with it. If people were expecting the same thing, it’d be terrible. Here it is, 10 years since “Yoshimi” and if people were expecting us to do that record again, we probably would have killed ourselves by now because we don’t want to do the same thing. We’re lucky; we get to change.

Buildings at the corner of modern-day Seventh and Massachusetts streets date back to at least 1855. But none withstood the test of time — or fire — like present-day Liberty Hall. The building housing the Herald of Freedom newspaper was burned down in Sheriff Jones’ attack on Lawrence in 1856. It was rebuilt and housed other businesses, but burned again in Quantrill’s Raid in 1863. Rebuilt again, the next building had a secondfloor gathering space that became popular for community events. That space was dedicated in 1870 as the first Liberty Hall — so named because Abraham Lincoln once called Lawrence the “cradle of liberty.” At that time, Liberty Hall was the center of Lawrence’s public social gatherings, with church suppers, festivals, fairs, dances and hotly contested political debates. In 1882, J.D. Bowersock

The opera house survived a small stage fire in 1896 but was completely destroyed by another fire, which originated in a room off the stage, in 1911. Bowersock, vowing

the building would never again succumb to fire, and was rebuilt once more — using concrete and brick. One-hundred years later, his “fire-proof” building still stands as a beloved gathering place for the community of Lawrence. — Source: Watkins Community Museum of History


Building to last After his first Bowersock Opera House burned down in 1911, Bowersock rebuilt it to last, using brick and reinforced concrete. And last it has. The people of Lawrence showed up to watch opera, vaudeville and silent films, which eventually gave way to “talkies.” After Bowersock’s death, the building was sold and repurposed as a movie theater — first the Dickinson and later the Jayhawker. The lengthiest period the building was not open to the public was in the 1950s and 1960s. It was being used as warehouse space and faced the threat of being razed. “It was unsightly,” Millstein says. “It was the afterthought of downtown.” But by the mid-’60s, crowds returned — this time louder and rowdier than ever. The Red Dog Inn brought national acts like the Dick Clark Show, Arlo Guthrie and Fleetwood Mac, and hundreds of beer-drinking fans along with them to the old theater.

HOLLYWOOD STARS CAME TO LAWRENCE for the April 1940 world premiere of “The Dark Command,” which was screened in the building now called Liberty Hall. The film, starring John Wayne, was set in Lawrence and inspired by the story of Quantrill’s Raid. BELOW: An illustrated program cover is shown from a 1922 show at the Bowersock Theatre. The show, “The White Peacock,” featured Olga Petrova.

“We had a good time,” Fitzgerald says, but the hall was starting to show wear and tear, not to mention it had orangecarpeted walls left over from its days as a disco. All the while, in addition to entertainment, the hall has seen weddings, speeches, charity socials, Kansas University events and, in 1997, even William S. Burroughs’ funeral.

When current Liberty Hall event manager Rob Fitzgerald came to Lawrence for college in 1980, he hit Liberty Hall his first night. The hall became a regular hangout, where hundreds of people a night might show up for a punk band — BYOB.

Give them Liberty When the Millsteins teamed with the late Charlie Oldfather to purchase the building in 1985, it had been vacant a couple of years and was pegged for demolition to make way for a shopping mall. The Millsteins restored it and renamed it Liberty Hall — after the first designated community hall on the site, back in the 1870s — and reverted its purpose to involve more than partying. Now, Liberty Hall serves as movie theater, performance theater, concert venue and community event space. “I think it’s just back to its original function,” Millstein says. “It’s changed its moods a few times in the last hundred years, but I think we’ve struck the balance here. Hopefully we can get another 100 years out of it.” — Features reporter Sara Shepherd can be reached at 832-7187. Follow her at

Area wines flavored by the vine

Special to the Journal-World

PEP SELVAN-SOLBERG LIFTS UP THE CANOPY ON SOME VINES TO REVEAL CLUSTERS OF GRAPES at Bluejacket Crossing Winery and Vineyard, located about 4 miles southwest of Eudora in this file photo from September 2008. This summer is the perfect time to check out the growing selection of local wineries.

Summer perfect time to get a taste of nearby wineries


his summer is the perfect time to check out the growing selection of local wineries — with great vineyard views, cozy tasting rooms and opportunities to listen to music while responsibly enjoying a little liquid refreshment. If you are a wine drinker, you might notice that Kansas wines have different names (besides brands) than the ones often seen from California, Australia and other mass-production regions. The reason? Wines are typically named for the grape from which they are made. And because the weather is a little different in Kansas than it is in California, Kansas grape growers rely on different grapes. “There are three different classifications of grapevines, excluding table grapes,” explains Pep Selvan-Solberg, owner of Bluejacket Crossing

Garden Calendar

Jennifer Smith

Vineyard and Winery near Eudora. He says the Vinifera type is the most prevalent and is the source for most of the wines you might see in a liquor store. Vinifera requires a longer growing season than the Midwest offers and also prefers cool summer nights over hot humid ones. Trying to push these grapes through a less-than-ideal growing situation produces fruit that lacks

the characteristics for which its species are known. “The other two classes are native American grapes and what we call French hybrids,” Selvan-Solberg says. “These vines tolerate greater variables in weather conditions and are the result of about 150 years of rootstock exchange. The grapes have excellent and unique fruit characteristics compared to Vinifera.” Selvan-Solberg’s face lights up as he describes the Vignoles’ citrusy peach- and apricot-influenced flavor and the full-bodied dryness of the Chambourcin. “I also need to tell you that I was once a serious California wine-drinking snob,” SelvanSolberg says laughing. A Kansas native and Kansas University graduate, Selvan-Solberg left the state to eventually build a business in California and lived there for many

years. He made occasional visits back to the Lawrence area. On one trip back, he was finally talked into visiting Davenport Orchards and Winery, also near Eudora. “I tried the Norton and looked at the wine on its own merits, and it was really excellent.” A few years later, SelvanSolberg moved back to the Lawrence area and planted the first of Bluejacket’s grapevines in 2001. He spent days at Davenport Orchards, learning the ropes to grape-growing and winemaking from Davenport’s owner Greg Shipe. After a few years, SelvanSolberg entered into an internship at Holy-field Vineyard and Winery near Basehor to work with father-daughter team Les and Michelle Meyer. In 2008, Selvan-Solberg finally had enough fruit to open the winery where he now of-

fers 20 different wines. He has expanded to nine acres of grapes. Selvan-Solberg notes that just as there are different flavors of merlot, each Seyval and Cynthiana taste a little different depending on the winemaker. Also, some grapes are good for more than one wine — he makes six wines from the Chambourcin grape, varying from a semi-sweet blush to the full-bodied dry red. If the wine is not enough, you can also feel good about supporting the local economy — local jobs and local people — when you visit local wineries. — Jennifer Smith is the Horticulture Extension Agent for K-State Research and Extension in Douglas County.

Chinese porcelain can be valuable if properly identified By Terry Kovel

Chinese porcelains of past centuries are selling for very high prices today. There are many types. Some we identify by the color — like celadon (pale-green glaze) or blue and white (blue decoration on white porcelain, including varieties called Canton or Nanking) or multicolored patterns named for their dominant color, including famille rose, rose medallion, rose mandarin or famille verte (green). Another American name for some Chinese porcelain is “Chinese export porcelain.” It was the made-to-order dinnerware manufactured in China but decorated in the European manner and sold to foreign countries in the 18th and 19th centuries. Because the Chinese often copy old pieces, those who have not studied antique Chinese porcelains can’t tell old from the new. Unrecognized bargains have been found in American

homes. The properly identified pieces sell for thousands of dollars. Look for flawless glazes without unintentional bumps or flaws. Turn a vase over. The bottom rim that touches the tabletop is usually unglazed if Chinese. European foot rims and bottoms of lids are glazed. Decorations should be carefully painted in light, pleasing colors. Twentieth-century Chinese wares sold to other countries are often decorated with large figures without much detail and with gold and other bright colors. A close look at a fine-quality famille rose vase would show a scene with many small people and animals in a woodland or interior setting. Prices of Chinese porcelain vary with the quality of the work and the age. If you plan to buy an expensive piece, get expert advice. If you own any heirloom porcelains, take a close look at them. Many 18th-century and earlier pieces have been rediscovered in recent years. A

A tribute to dads on Father’s Day Dear Annie: Last year, you printed a column on Father’s Day about what makes a dad. There is a huge difference between what makes a “father” and what makes a “dad.” A father is someone who believes that by donating his sperm for your creation, he has done his duty in life. A dad is someone who gets up every day and does whatever he can to put a roof over your head, clothes on your back and food on your table. He might have to dig ditches, flip hamburgers, deliver pizzas, work in a factory — or all of the above. He might not own a suit and tie. He teaches the value of hard work not because he’s looking for help mowing the lawn, but because he knows idleness leads to trouble. He realizes his job is to make his children productive citizens, and to do that, he can’t always be his child’s friend. When I graduated from

Annie’s Mailbox

Marcy Sugar and Kathy Mitchell

high school, I realized I had a dad I respected and with whom I could talk about anything. He taught me to remember right from wrong, no matter where I was or what I was doing. He set the bar and let me go out into the world to make my own way. To me, there is no greater man than a dad. — S. Dear S.: Thank you for providing a wonderful Father’s Day testimonial. Our best wishes to all the dads who are such excellent role models for their children. Here’s an

‘Falling Skies’ back in lineup Last year, Steven Spielberg produced two science fiction fantasies for television, “Terra Nova” and “Falling Skies.” ‘‘Nova,” the more anticipated and expensive of the two, fell by the wayside while the enormously popular “Falling Skies” (8 p.m., TNT) is now entering its second season. For the uninitiated, “Skies” follows a ragtag army of human survivors mounting a tenacious insurgency against a cruel, technologically superior alien force. There are special-effects depictions of spaceships and critters, but the real joy of “Skies” is its inventive, old-school way of using locations to evoke a sense of doom. Toss a few burned-out cars around an abandoned strip mall and you’re halfway to creating an endof-the-world atmosphere. N o a h Wyle stars as Tom Mason, a former college history professor turned rebelpatriot. His knowledge of military and diplomatic history as well as the show’s Boston-area setting connects these freedom fighters to the men of Lexington and Concord. Like the classic 1950s sci-fi movies that clearly inspired Spielberg, “Falling Skies” can be appreciated on several levels. On the surface, it’s a shoot-em-up thrill ride. But dig deeper and you reach undercurrents of popular dread.

Speaking of thriving on basic cable, “Longmire” (9 p.m., A&E) debuted two weeks ago as the most watched launch of a scripted series on cable this year. And its audience grew in its second week. This police procedural set in Big Sky Country will never win awards for originality or complexity. And that may be central to its appeal. At a time when some networks have doubled down on fantasy series (“Game of Thrones,” ‘‘True Blood”) with baffling sets of rules and character relationships that require a flow chart to follow, “Longmire” celebrates the simple appeal of the taciturn Western hero.

essay that appeared in this space several years ago, and we are happy to print it again: A great man died today. He wasn’t a world leader or a famous doctor or a war hero or a sports figure. He was no business tycoon, and you would never see his name in the financial pages. But he was one of the greatest men who ever lived. He was my father. I guess you might say he was a person who was never interested in getting credit or receiving honors. He did corny things like pay his bills on time, go to church on Sunday and serve as an officer in the PTA. He helped his kids with their homework and drove his wife to do the grocery shopping on Thursday nights. He got a great kick out of hauling his teenagers and their friends around to and from football games. Dad enjoyed simple

pastimes like picnics in the park and pitching horseshoes. Opera wasn’t exactly his thing. He liked country music, mowing the grass and running with the dog. He didn’t own a tuxedo, and I’m sure he never tasted smoked salmon or caviar. Tonight is my first night without him. I don’t know what to do, so I am writing to you. I am sorry now for the times I didn’t show him the proper respect. But I am grateful for a lot of other things. I am thankful that God let me have my father for 15 years. And I am happy that I was able to let him know how much I loved him. That wonderful man died with a smile on his face and fulfillment in his heart. He knew that he was a great success as a husband and a father, a brother, a son and a friend. I wonder how many millionaires can say that. — His Daughter

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)  No one needs to tell you what to do. You are in the mood to visit with a special friend or two, and you’re full of energy. Tonight: Pretend it is Friday night. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)  Make today about family and those in your immediate circle. A neighbor might attempt to nudge his or her way into your schedule. Tonight: A spontaneous get-together at your pad. — The astrological forecast should be read for entertainment only.
