Families find healing after postpartum depression By Karrey Britt

Editor’s Note: This is the second in a series of stories on postpartum mood disorders.

TOM STEELE, BASEHOR, says he’d rather spend his time on his Harley or with grandkids than frittering it away on the Internet.

Digital divide: Not everyone views Internet, smartphones as advances By Rob Roberts

ANDRA GONZALEZ, OF SHAWNEE, right, sews while chatting with neighbor Cena Burge. Gonzalez prefers communicating the old-fashioned way — by letters, landline or face to face.

In 1812, a group of English textile workers known as Luddites destroyed new labor-saving equipment that threatened their livelihoods. Two hundred years later, the term “Luddite” survives, with a broader definition as a person opposed to technological changes — such as the Internet. According to, only 21 percent of the North American population does not use the Internet — meaning no email or Facebook, no Skyping or Web surfing. Statistics for northeast Kansas were not available. But a search using old-fashioned means identified a few resi-

dents of the region doing without modern communication advances for reasons ranging from financial to philosophical. Tom Steele, 67, of Basehor said he steers clear of the Internet because of concerns over privacy and his own temperament. “I go to the library once in a while and fiddle on their computer,” the retired grocery hauler said. “If I get mad there, I won’t tear it up. But if I had a laptop at home, I’d probably throw it.” During one brief period after an employer stopped mailing pay stubs, Steele recalled, he began using a computer at work to access payroll data.

Two years ago, Karen Meats thought she would be celebrating the joys of being a grandparent after her daughter, Sara Vancil, had a baby girl, but it ended up being what she described as a nightmare. “It was probably the most terrifying thing that I have ever witnessed,” she said. “It was like I lost my daughter.” Lawrence resident Vancil, 32, a financial aid administrator at Kansas University, suffered from severe postpartum depression after the birth of her first child, Tessa. She believes there were a number of things that contributed to the mental illness, and it started with a rare birthing experience where Tessa was born in just two hours. When Vancil went home, she was unable to eat and retain the food, and she couldn’t sleep. Then, she had issues with breast-feeding. “I’m a very Type A person, definitely on top of things and in control,” she said. Suddenly, she felt out of control. “I started developing anxious thoughts like, ‘I can’t do this,’ ‘I want my life back,’ Please see DEPRESSION, page 7A

Salvation Army leaders called to new position ————

Capts. Wes and Susan Dalberg leaving Lawrence for similar post in Illinois next week By Andy Hyland

Nick Krug/Journal-World Photo

WES AND SUSAN DALBERG will be leaving their posts and relocating to Decatur, Ill., after seven years in Lawrence.

Wes and Susan Dalberg said there’s a lot about leading the Salvation Army in Lawrence that they’ll miss. The holidays are one, for sure, Susan said, with the toy shop program and turkey distribution. Wes said he’ll miss the people and being connected to Kansas University. The couple have led Lawrence’s Salvation Army since 2005, and will

They came back, though. “It’s a lot more fulfilling doing what God called you to do,” Susan said. “There are days that you ask, ‘Why did I do this?’ But not many.” A reception for the Dalbergs is scheduled from 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Thursday at the Salvation Army, 946 N.H.

Susan Schneweis, chairwoman of the Salvation Army’s local advisory board, said the Dalbergs have been excellent corps officers. “We’re very, very sorry to see them leave,” she said. She said the Dalbergs were good at keeping

lines of communication open with the Lawrence community and working with a diverse group of people. “The new people have some pretty darned big shoes to fill as far as keeping up with all of that,” Schneweis said. Wes recalled how the decision to close down the Salvation Army’s homeless shelter wasn’t an easy choice. The decision let the Lawrence Please see SALVATION, page 2A

Community Shelter take over the responsibility for providing the service for the city’s homeless. Today, however, the Salvation Army still offers a wide range of social services and is beginning a new permanent supportive housing program, funded by a $400,000 federal grant. The program would provide five units of housing for families and five units for individuals through local landlords, Wes said. People will pay rent on a sliding scale based on their income, but people won’t be turned down based on inability to pay, Wes said. The couple had originally hoped to stay on another year before being transferred to help with a new building project. The Salvation Army has expressed interest in moving to property it owns near Haskell Avenue between 15th and 19th streets. If $4 million in funds could be raised for that project, the Salvation Army has expressed interest in selling its building on New Hampshire Street. “I really, really believe it’s a doable thing,” Wes said. “You ask me what I base that on, and I base that on more than six years of being in Lawrence. I just believe the people here are very generous and compassionate.” — Higher education reporter Andy Hyland can be reached at 832-6388.

Honor Flights for Kansas WWII veterans put on hold WICHITA (AP) — Efforts to take World War II veterans to see the war’s memorial in Washington are in flux in Kansas. The Wichita Eagle reported that one organization that conducted the free trips is on the verge of disappearing, and another is trying to replace it. Problems came to a head after Springfield, Ohio-based Honor Flight decided it no longer wanted Great Bend-based Central Prairie Honor Flights to help organize trips for the national network. Issues included a veteran breaking a rib after falling out of a top bunk in April 2011, reports being filed late and checks going uncashed for months. Central Prairie Honor Flights, which hasn’t had any flights in 2012 and canceled two June flights, is considering its options. For more than 21/2 years, the organization raised nearly $1.2 million and conducted 17 Honor Flights that took more than 1,100 World War II veterans to Washington. But the organization that ran Central Prairie Honor Flights lost federal funding in spring 2011. That meant the Great Bend group lost its only federal employee, Dan Curtis, who had served as

It’s a major tragedy if infighting in the organization screws it up. These guys are dying off very quickly.” — World War II veteran Phil Blake the Honor Flights’ coordinator. LaVeta Miller, who was promoted from program assistant to its manager, acknowledged making mistakes but said she just wants “to do what’s best for the veterans.” The bunk-bed incident happened after Curtis learned of inexpensive rates at the 4-H’s national headquarters and told Miller she should book them instead of the hotel where the veterans usually stayed. But the 4-H quarters also included some bunk beds that couldn’t be separated. Although the veterans were told not to climb up in the bunks, at least one did. “They leave here 85,” Miller said, “but they think they’re 23 when they get out there.” Now, two former Central Prairie volunteers — whose complaints to the national office resulted in the Great

Bend’s group affiliation being dropped — are ramping up a new organization: Hutchinson-based Kansas Honor Flight. Its president, Mike VanCampen, said his organization won’t do the larger charter flights but will fly commercial, taking about 30 veterans at a time. “It’s much safer and more comfortable for the veterans (to travel in smaller groups),” VanCampen said. Meanwhile, Herb Duncan, a Wichita fundraiser for the Great Bend hub, is considering the possibility of connecting with another similar program. But the uncertainty has left potential donors wondering what to do. “Right now, going out in the business community trying to raise funds, I’m getting doors shut in my face,” Duncan said. “They want to know who’s in charge.” Interest in the trips remains high, with at least several hundred Kansas World War II veterans indicating they want to go on a flight. “It’s a major tragedy if infighting in the organization screws it up,” said Phil Blake, a World War II vet who went on an Honor Flight in 2009. “These guys are dying off very quickly.”

Sentencing disparities under review WICHITA (AP) — Hundreds of Kansas inmates sentenced before new guidelines took effect in 1993 are serving prison terms that would have been shorter under today’s law. The Wichita Eagle reported Saturday that the new guidelines established a sentencing system based on the type of crime committed and the defendant’s previous criminal history. Designed to eliminate racial and geographical disparities in sentencing, the guidelines generally called for shorter sentences for property crimes and longer ones for violent crimes. The Kansas Legislature decided to apply the

guidelines retroactively to more than 2,000 inmates who were serving time for relatively minor offenses. But more than 4,000 inmates convicted of more serious crimes were left to serve out their original sentences. Although the sentencing guidelines created two classes of prison inmates, the Kansas Supreme Court ruled in 1994 that it did not violate inmates’ rights. Today, about 400 of those “old law” inmates remain behind bars, and there are no efforts under way to make their sentences coincide with current laws. Rick Redford, who is one of the “old law” inmates, will go before the

Kansas Prisoner Review Board this month after serving more than 27 years in prison. His most serious conviction was aggravated kidnapping, and had he been sentenced under the current guidelines, he probably would have been released years ago. 609 N.H. (offices) • 645 N.H.

Bishop Seabury reaches campaign goal

The big reveal

BRIEFLY Truck used in prison escape found WINFIELD — A box truck that two inmates used to escape from the Winfield Correctional Facility in south-central Kansas has been found abandoned about 15 miles away. The Kansas Department of Corrections said in a news release that the truck sustained a blowout northeast of Rock and was found Sunday morning. The discovery was made one day after corrections officials identified 52-year-old Robert Cook and 48-year-old Frank Crutchfield as missing. Now, officials say a truck belonging to the nearby city of Douglass is missing and that the fugitives are suspected of taking it. The vehicle is described as a dark blue 2006 GMC Sierra with a Kansas license tag of 74914. Authorities are asking anyone with information on the whereabouts of the two men or the missing truck to contact law enforcement.

Jail inmate sues Shawnee County TOPEKA — An inmate at the Shawnee County Jail alleges in a lawsuit that officials removed more than $1,600 from his inmate account that he didn’t owe. The Topeka Capital-Journal reported that inmate Gary Lee Baker is acting on his own attorney. In his hand-written lawsuit, he asks the county to repay him. At issue is money removed from his account to cover medical services. The county says the services were provided while he was a jail inmate in 2005 and 2008. Baker was booked into the jail in March and charged with felony theft and misdemeanor driving while a habitual violator. Baker pleaded guilty to felony theft last month, when the other charge was dismissed. Sentencing is set for next month, but he is seeking to withdraw his plea.

Territorial Days to honor city’s history By Adam Strunk

Before Kansas was a state and Topeka was the capital, there was Lecompton, the pro-slavery territorial capital and lightning rod for the national slavery debate. Territorial Days, set for Friday and Saturday in Lecompton, will work to commemorate this history. The two-day event will include a battle re-enactment, carnival, pancake feed, pioneer skill demonstration and a veterans memorial ceremony. “I just think it’s a great event for the family,” said Paul Bahnmaier, event or-

ganizer and president of the Lecompton Historical Society. “There are many activities for everyone to enjoy, and you can experience the history.” While Lecompton’s 36th annual Territorial Days promises a weekend of fun and frivolity, Bahnmaier said the event commemorates the much darker time period of “Bleeding Kansas.” The event’s battle re-enactment at 2 p.m. Saturday will recreate the 1856 Battle of Fort Titus, when 50 free-state militiamen overwhelmed the proslavery Fort Titus, two miles south of Lecompton. The free-staters marched

on the fort from Lawrence, hungry and enraged after pro-slavery forces cut Lawrence’s supply lines. The group eventually overwhelmed the fort by shooting cannonballs made from melted down newspaper typeface. Three men died, 14 were injured in the fray and freestate militia took 400 muskets as well as $10,000 in bank notes and gold after forcing the fort’s surrender. Today, 156 years later, the wounds of “Bleeding Kansas” have healed, and event organizers hope Territorial Days will serve as a fun family outing and a lasting reminder of the state’s tumultuous history.

Bishop Seabury Academy has met its 2012 Stepping-Up Capital campaign in record time. “We had a donor who put up a $350,000 challenge grant that we happily met ... in six weeks time,” said Don Schawang, school director. “What is so astounding is how many members stepped up,” said Margie Lawrence, director of development. “Corporations contributed to the campaign and even some of the kids.” The 15-year-old school has seen a steady increase in its school population since 2007, and last year it reached a record 170 students due, in part, to the addition of a sixth-grade class. “They are a spirited group,” Lawrence said, “and the integration went very well.” While the overall experience was positive, it hasn’t been without growing pains. “We have always had one lunch period,” Lawrence said. “It’s a real community time where kids from the upper and lower school sit together and get to know one another, but we were at a point when Please see SEABURY, page 4A

Residents without Internet access can still get most information they desire from public agencies. But as the offline population dwindles and online communication tools proliferate, the data gap between those with and without computers is widening. That means some information is now provided by request only, and some isn’t available at all to those without computers or smartphones. “Individuals who do not have access to a computer can request information from their school or at the district office, and a paper copy can be provided,” said Leigh Anne Neal, the Shawnee Mission school district’s associate superintendent for communications.

“You had to change your password every 30 days, and the third time you hit the wrong button, it would kick you out,” he said. “I finally said, ‘Heck with it, I’ll go to the bank for the information.’” But even if computers were hassle-free, Steele would have little use for them. “As far as people paying their bills by Internet, that’s about the dumbest thing going,” he said. “Someone got hold of my wife’s Social Security number, and we ended up having to put a credit lock on.” Being able to see his grandkids live on Skype would be “cool,” Steele acknowledged, adding that he could “see a whole world of advantageous things, like genealogy, you could look up on the computer.” “But it just doesn’t fit my category,” he said. “My daughter and son-inlaw use their smartphone to find out what restaurants are closest to them and how many calories are in this or that. I say, ‘Just go eat.’” According to Steele, he has an “antique” cellphone, which doesn’t text or take photos. And he’s dreading the day the battery wears out, forcing him to upgrade. “I just have no interest or patience for stuff like that,” Steele said. “I’d rather ride my motorcycle, work in the yard and

can but retaining printed options that go out more broadly on a limited basis.” Delivered to every home in the district three times a year, “Inside: Shawnee Mission” is an example of the district’s effort to keep patrons apprised of news and events via hard copy. Examples of data exclusive to those with Internet or texting capabilities include board meeting agenda packets and school emergency and weather alerts. Gordon Davis, an information specialist with the Johnson County Area Agency on Aging, said it relies on frequent mailings and telephone conversations to keep the county’s computerless seniors informed about support services it provides. “But in today’s world, certain publications and certain information are now only available online,” he said. That sends many people to the library, where staff can help patrons access online information

and, better yet, teach them how to use computers, Davis said. But despite the fact that computers could open whole new worlds for seniors largely confined to their homes, many decline to adapt by dint of resources or resistance to change, he said. For others, “the library has become the place for people to test something like the Internet, Facebook or ebooks” and then purchase a computer for home use, said Kim Beets, director of the Bonner Springs City Library. It offers 24 computers with public Internet access. The Johnson County Library system offers 362 computers with Internet access across its 13 branches, said Marsha Bennett, community relations manager. Job seekers are among the many patrons the computers attract, she said, because many employers now accept online applications only. In addition, most state forms required to qualify for and remain on unemployment are completed online.

People of all ages and income levels rely on the Bonner Springs library computers, Beets added. And that information fuels the library’s own communications policy. “We continue to do a lot of our traditional print stuff, marquee signs, word of mouth,” she said. “There’s probably not anything we put online that we wouldn’t communicate by other means.”

ing to a new home decades ago. “We had a refrigerator, a black-and-white TV and an inside bathroom,” Viola said. “No, I take that back. I still had to beat a path (to the outhouse) until I got pregnant with our first child and we moved to a house with a bathroom.” Truly Ernest, 83, and Viola, 71, don’t have the Internet or even cable or satellite dish for television reception. “We get (channels) 4, 5 and 9, which is more than we need,” Viola said. “I do have a cellphone in case I go out and have a breakdown. But as far as the Internet, we don’t need it, don’t want it, not going to get it.” The Schlups prefer to spend their free time playing cards, watching a little TV and playing with their Pomeranian, Tinkerbelle. “My children all have the Internet, and I think it’s good for the right things,” Viola said. “But take all these men who think they’re talking to 14-year-olds who are actually talking to detectives. That destroys families.” Michael Repp of Nieman Chiropractic in Shawnee uses the Internet in his business. But like older Luddites, Repp said he didn’t like the interpersonal direction of modern communication. “I don’t tweet or Facebook, and I don’t have an iPhone,” Repp said. “I’m ‘so 29 seconds ago’ — which, by the way, is my least favorite commercial slogan.”

we had to seriously consider splitting up the lunches.” “The kids did not like that idea,” Lawrence said. “They wanted to stay together.” This most recent capital campaign has allowed that to happen, and construction is beginning to expand the commons area, enlarge the kitchen area and faculty work space, and double the size of the parking lot. In addition, there will be a safe room designed to withstand an EF5 tornado, locker rooms and a storage area. This is not the first capital drive for the school. In August 2002, after a $2.7 million campaign, the school’s board of trustees purchased the land and building at its current site, 4120 Clinton Parkway. In 2006, a $1.5 million campaign was launched to raise money for construction of a building for the fine arts and foreign language departments, and in 2008, Reese Hall opened. Last year, two portable classrooms were placed on the western edge of the campus.

spend time with my family.” Andra Gonzalez, who lives at the Bluejacket Lodge Apartments in Shawnee, said she prefers to communicate the old-fashioned way: through letters, on a landline telephone or face to face. While working on one of the 100 lap robes she donates each year, Gonzalez chatted recently with neighbor Cena Burge, who rued the fact she could no longer afford Internet service. Burge, a Christian Scientist, said she especially missed online church programs and the ability to look up things like recipes. “If I need a recipe,” Gonzalez said, “I go to the library and find a cookbook.” A retired nurse, Gonzalez used to use a computer in the clinic. But she doesn’t miss the learning curves associated with annual updates of the operating system — “It used to be called Windows,” she said. Like Steele, Gonzalez also has security concerns. Her son’s bank account was tapped to the tune of several thousand dollars by a hacker, she said. But Gonzalez’s main reason for remaining offline, she said, is that “there are better things to spend time and money on.” Viola Schlup, who lives east of Baldwin City, said she hasn’t needed any innovations since marrying Truly Ernest Schlup and mov-

Greek conservatives win, head into coalition talks By Demetris Nellas and Elena Becatoros Associated Press

ATHENS, GREECE — Fears of an imminent Greek exit from Europe’s joint currency receded Sunday after the conservative New Democracy party came first in a critical election and pro-bailout parties won enough seats to form a joint government. As central banks stood ready to intervene in case of financial turmoil, Greece held its second national election in six

weeks after an inconclusive ballot on May 6 and the subsequent collapse of coalition talks. With one party advocating ripping up Greece’s multibillion-euro bailout deal, Sunday’s election was seen as a vote on whether Greece should stay in the 17-nation group sharing the euro currency. A Greek exit would have had potentially catastrophic consequences for other ailing European nations, the United States and the entire global economy. Asian stock markets

climbed early today on the news. Near complete results showed New Democracy coming first with 29.6 percent of the vote and 129 of the 300 seats in Parliament. The radical left, antibailout Syriza party had 26.9 percent and 71 seats, and the pro-bailout Socialist PASOK party came in third with 12.3 percent of the vote and 33 seats. The extremist far-right Golden Dawn party had steady support, getting 6.9 percent of the vote and 18 seats. Sunday’s results “will

probably ease fears of an imminent Greek euro exit,” said Martin Koehring of the Economist Intelligence Unit. “There will probably be a relief rally tomorrow in the financial markets. But the key question is how quickly can a government be formed?” Stock analysts, however, warned that any bounce for financial markets could be short-lived. “Treat knee-jerk market rallies with caution,” Neil MacKinnon, a global macro strategist at VTB Capital, advised clients, saying

there was still too many questions about Europe’s debt crisis to celebrate the Greek vote. The United States welcomed the result. “We hope this election will

Rodney King, key figure in L.A. riots, dies By Anthony McCartney Associated Press

LOS ANGELES — After his beating by police stunned the nation and a jury’s decision not to hold them responsible sparked a deadly race riot that left Los Angeles smoldering, Rodney King in a quavering voice pleaded on national television for peace while the city burned. But peace never quite came for King — not after the fires died down, after two of the officers who broke his skull multiple times were punished in a different court, after race relations were reshaped and police tactics were reformed. His life, which ended Sunday at age 47 after he was pulled from the bottom of his swimming pool, was a continual struggle even as the city he helped change moved on. The images — preserved on an infamous grainy video — of the

Islamist claims victory in Egypt vote CAIRO — The Muslim Brotherhood declared early today that its candidate, Mohammed Morsi, won Egypt’s presidential election, which would be the first victory of an Islamist as head of state in the stunning wave of protests Morsi demanding democracy that swept the Middle East the past year. But the military handed itself the lion’s share of power over the new president, sharpening the possibility of confrontation. With parliament dissolved and martial law effectively in force, the generals made themselves Egypt’s lawmakers, gave themselves control over the budget and will determine who writes the permanent constitution that will define the country’s future. But as they claimed victory over Hosni Mubarak’s last Prime Minister, Ahmed Shafiq, after a deeply polarizing election, the Brotherhood challenged the military’s power grab. The group warned that it did not recognize the dissolution of parliament or the military’s interim constitution — or its right to oversee the drafting of a new one.

King, the black motorist whose 1991 videotaped beating by Los Angeles police officers was the touchstone for one of the most destructive race riots in the nation’s history, has died, his publicist said Sunday. He was 47. black driver curled up on the ground while four white officers clubbed him more than 50 times

with batons — became a national symbol of police brutality in 1991. More than a year later, when the officers’ acquittals touched off one of the most destructive race riots in history, his soft-spoken question — “Can we all get along?” — spurred the nation to confront its difficult racial history. But while Los Angeles race relations and the city’s police department made strides forward, King kept coming before police and courts, struggling with alcohol addiction and arrests, periodically reappearing publicly for a stint on “Celebrity Rehab” or a celebrity boxing match. He spent the last months of his life promoting a memoir he titled “The Riot Within: From Rebellion to Redemption.” King was declared dead at a hospital after his fiancée called 911 at 5:25 a.m. to say she found him submerged in the pool at his home in Rialto, about an hour’s drive from Los An-

geles. Officers found King in the deep end of the pool, pulled him out and tried unsuccessfully to revive him with CPR. An autopsy was expected to determine the cause of death within two days; police found no alcohol or drug paraphernalia near the pool and said foul play wasn’t suspected.

TROY, OHIO — Mitt Romney in an interview aired Sunday repeatedly refused to say that he would overturn President Barack Obama’s new policy allowing some young illegal immigrants to stay in the United States. He claimed Obama’s decision was political, while s e n i o r W h i t e House ad- Romney viser David Plouffe said the move wasn’t motivated by politics. The Republican presidential candidate was asked several times in an interview on CBS’ “Face the Nation” whether he would overturn the executive order issued Friday if he’s elected in the fall. He refused to directly answer. “It would be overtaken by events,” Romney said when pressed for the second time by moderator Bob Schieffer during the

interview taped Saturday while the former Massachusetts governor’s bus tour stopped in Pennsylvania. He explained the order would become irrelevant “by virtue of my putting in place a long-term solution, with legislation which creates law that relates to these individuals such that they know what their setting is going to be, not just for the term of a president but on a permanent basis.” Romney’s Rust Belt tour swept through Ohio on Sunday, where he appeared with House Speaker John Boehner in the speaker’s home district in Troy. Protesters shouted throughout his abbreviated campaign speech there, yelling “Romney go home!” as Romney campaign staff moved speakers into the group of protesters in attempt to drown them out in return. The protest came just a few minutes after top Obama adviser David Axelrod posted a tweet saying he’s opposed to efforts to shout down Romney’s bus tour.

Men also suffer postpartum effects Depression CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1A

By Karrey Britt

If you think postpartum depression just affects mothers, think again. Dads can suffer, too. Carrie Wendel-Hummell, a graduate student in Kansas University’s Department of Sociology, said a 2010 study found that 10 percent of fathers experience depression within one year of having a child, which is twice the normal rate for depression in men. While maternal postpartum depression is prevalent and can have negative personal, family and child developmental outcomes, there is less research on the prevalence, risk factors and effects of postpartum depression among fathers. Wendel-Hummell said often postpartum depression is portrayed as a problem of hormones, but it involves many other factors such as sleep deprivation, social isolation and financial strain. “Many mothers and fathers are getting postpartum depression and other mood disorders well after the hormones are supposed to be back to normal,” she said. Since May 2011, she has been interviewing parents who have gone through an emotionally difficult time after the birth of their first child as part of her dissertation research project. She wants to learn more about the causes of distress and how they differ between moms and dads. Among those she has interviewed is Kyle Stern, 29, of Kansas City, Mo., who suffered anxiety after the birth of his 19-monthold son, Sam. At the time, he knew he wasn’t himself, but he wasn’t sure what was wrong until he searched online and found some dad blogs. “There was one where a dad talked about how he was a survivor of paternal postpartum depression or something like that,” Stern said. “It was the first time I had even heard that dads might suffer.” During the first three months after Sam was born, Stern had a lot on his plate. He was working a fulltime job in information

AMELIA AND KYLE STERN HAVE SOME SPECIAL TIME WITH THEIR SON, SAM, in their front yard. The Kansas City couple both experienced postpartum depression after Sam was born.

KU RESEARCH STUDY Carrie Wendel-Hummell, a Kansas University doctoral student, is conducting research on parents who went through an emotionally difficult time after the birth of their first child. She is looking at the differences between mothers and fathers. Her goal is to conduct interviews with at least 45 parents. To qualify, parents must meet the following criteria:

You had strong feelings technology, pursuing a master’s degree in education at Kansas University and taking care of household chores. And his wife, Amelia Stern, 29, was suffering postpartum depression. That meant he also was taking care of their newborn most of the time. Amelia said at her lowest point, she wanted to run away because she didn’t feel like she was being a good mother. With the help of medications, she recovered, and that’s when Kyle let down his guard and his postpartum depression started to show.

of sadness, fear, anxiety, anger or frustration after your first child was born.

You were married to or living with the child’s other biological parent when your first child was born.

You are 18 years old or older. For more information or to participate, contact WendelHummell at 785-393-6366 or “Kyle was so busy taking care of me and compensating for everything that I was going through that he didn’t really have time to take care of himself and process what he was going through,” Amelia said. She said Kyle is typically laid back, loving, helpful and a good problem-solver, but that had changed. He became more shorttempered and grumpy, and small daily tasks would overwhelm him, especially when Sam cried. “When Sam was fussy, it almost felt like the world was closing in

around me,” Kyle said. “It was like I wanted to be the best dad but felt like I was failing when the baby cried. Thoughts like, ‘I can’t take care of my own baby’ started to creep in.” At times, he said it felt like everything was happening at once and like everyone was talking louder and louder. “It’s almost like I perceived things completely different than what was actually happening. Everything seemed to be elevated, like if Sam was crying it seemed to be the worst cry,” he said. Sometimes, he would lose his temper, and that frightened him the most. “It’s like where did this loving person and guy that wants to be a great dad go during this experience,” he said. “It’s like I become a completely different person.” After talking to his wife, he decided to approach his primary care doctor in Lawrence. The doctor helped Kyle figure out that he was suffering from anxiety and not so much depression, and then prescribed medication for

him. With a few days, Kyle said he noticed a difference. “Things didn’t stress me out so much, so it was a great breakthrough for me,” he said. Wendel-Hummell said she would like to see more education for fathers and a screening process. Currently, there’s nothing available because fathers don’t go to the doctor for a postpartum checkup like mothers do. Melissa Hoffman, a state coordinator for Postpartum Support International, said men often are at higher risk for postpartum depression when their wife is suffering. She said while the symptoms are similar, there’s often a later onset. “There’s a lot of reluctance to talk about it just like with moms, and maybe even more so because of the idea that a man shouldn’t have those feelings,” Hoffman said. — Health reporter Karrey Britt can be reached at 832-7190.

Support group offers resources to parents By Karrey Britt

Four years ago, Melissa Hoffman started a support group in Lawrence for women who suffer from postpartum mood disorders. “When I went through it, there was nothing in Lawrence. I was a childbirth educator and a nurse, but I just felt so alone. I felt like nobody else felt like this,” she said. She had panic attacks and intrusive thoughts that caused her reluctance to seek help. She finally reached out to her doctor when her son was 9 months old. “I was just offered a prescription for a medication and sent on my way without any explanation of what was happening to me,” she said. Four months later, she attended a presentation by Pec Indman, author of “Beyond the Blues,” in Lawrence. She went to take notes for her job. “It was like, ‘Oh my God. That’s me. She’s talking about me,” Hoffman said. She bought the book and read it that night. Then, she reached out to the Pregnancy and Postpartum Resource Center in Kansas City and spoke to the founder Meeka Centimano, who also experienced postpartum depression. “It was the first time I didn’t feel alone,” Hoff-

man said. “I promised myself when I recovered that there would be something in Lawrence.” Now, not only does she lead a weekly support group at Lawrence Memorial Hospital but she’s also a volunteer for the Pregnancy and Postpartum Resource Center, and she’s Kansas coordinator for Postpartum Support International. “So often, women don’t seek help because of the stigma that surrounds it and for fear of what people might think,” she said. “There’s also fear of, ‘Will they take my baby away?’” Hoffman said 80 percent of women will experience what’s called the “baby blues” or the normal adjustment period. “It’s like an emotional roller coaster ride and getting used to your role as a new mom,” she said. Baby blues should be resolving and getting increasingly better within two to three weeks. If conditions persist past the three-week mark, Hoffman said women should seek medical help. Postpartum depression occurs after one out of eight deliveries. While it’s called postpartum depression, women can suffer a range of mood disorders, such as anxiety, posttraumatic stress disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder, panic disorder and psychosis. “Women often have

Women are not to blame in this. They didn’t do anything to cause it, but there are things that put them at risk.” — Melissa Hoffman, a support group leader more than one, and they often cross over,” she said. “These are all separate diagnoses, and one won’t lead to the next. Depression may become more serious depression but won’t lead to psychosis.” Symptoms of postpartum depression include crying, sadness, anger, change in sleep, change in appetite, loss of pleasure, headaches, stomachaches and rapid heartbeat. Hoffman said symptoms can appear in pregnancy 10 percent of the time. Women also can have intrusive or disturbing thoughts, and they often are associated with the baby. “These women are the very least likely to ask for help because they are so horrified and disturbed by the thoughts,” Hoffman said. “They are at high risk of suicide because of the guilt they feel from having those thoughts.” Hoffman said these intrusive thoughts should not be mistaken for psychosis. Psychosis involves

hallucinations and delusions, which the woman does not recognize as alarming. Psychosis is a break from reality, and it is a mental health emergency. “Women are not to blame in this,” Hoffman said. “They didn’t do anything to cause it, but there are things that put them at risk.” She puts the risk factors into three categories:

Medical — history of infertility, thyroid disease, severe premenstrual syndrome and mood changes while taking birth control or fertility drugs.

Social — poor system of support, stressful life events like a move or job change, quick return to work and short hospital stay.

Emotional — family or personal history of mood illness, poor stress coping skills, early childhood issues, relationship problems, loss of loved one, previous episode of postpartum depression and symptoms during pregnancy. Hoffman said women should get a medical evaluation to rule out other illnesses. Then, there are three treatment options: medications, therapy and social support. Hoffman said her support group, “Build Your Village,” meets Monday evenings, and the attendance typically ranges from two to eight.

“It’s a place to talk and not be judged. We support each other but try not to advise,” she said. “It’s a lot of things to a lot of people.” Hoffman said there’s still a lack of resources and services in Lawrence when it comes to caring for postpartum depression. Women are having to seek inpatient and outpatient care in Topeka and Kansas City. “My dream would be that every woman would be screened in pregnancy and postpartum, and then when somebody was identified as needing services that Lawrence would have a network of providers who have specific knowledge of postpartum mood disorders in place to see her in a timely manner. Truly, so often that is necessary.” Hoffman said there were signs of anxiety after giving birth to her second child, but they were manageable because she had the knowledge, right care and support to make a difference. Her sons are now ages 8 and 5. “I knew so much more and was prepared for what might happen and so were the people who support me,” she said. “That made a huge difference.” — Health reporter Karrey Britt can be reached at 832-7190.

and ‘This is a huge mistake,’” she said. “Once those thoughts are in your head, you have a hard time getting rid of them.” She didn’t feel a bond with her baby and was talking to her mom and 32-year-old husband, Brian, about giving Tessa up for adoption or running away. Meats said her daughter didn’t really help care for Tessa and when she did, it was regimented. She recalled Vancil giving her a bath and how she didn’t play with Tessa or kiss her. “It was pour the water over her head, wash her hair, get her out and try to get away from her and back to bed,” she said. Meats said they also went through a bargaining stage where if Vancil fed Tessa, then she could go back to sleep. Two weeks after the birth, Vancil had a breakdown and she started crying and becoming hysterical. She even talked about suicide. Her husband, who had suffered from depression for years, called Stormont-Vail HealthCare in Topeka, and she was admitted voluntarily. “We were familiar with the signs, the symptoms, the treatment,” she said. “I think his level of knowledge when he saw the struggles I was going through was maybe more advanced than other dads might have been, so I think he got me help a little bit faster.” Vancil was released after about five days, and the hospital connected her with a case manager in the Healthy Families program through the health department. She said a lot of her anxiety was about being a good parent, and so they thought more education would help. She also was prescribed medications. “The key thing was I just wasn’t feeling bonded with my daughter. I think that’s a common feeling among a lot of moms with postpartum depression experience,” she said. “It’s not an automatic thing. It’s not so fast or natural, but it makes you feel really guilty, and then the guilt is just this self-perpetuating cycle.” During the first three months after Tessa was born, Vancil tried a number of medications and treatments, including attending a Lawrence postpartum support group, seeing a therapist at Bert Nash Community Mental Health Center, where she went through its intensive outpatient program, and seeing a psychiatrist in Kansas City. Vancil was hospitalized again at Stormont-Vail and then at Two Rivers Psychiatric Hospital in Kansas City, Mo. “In all of my treatment, I was never really treated by anyone who had experience, training, interest or knowledge of postpartum mood disorders,” she said. “I don’t recall ever being screened specifically for postpartum conditions. I was always treated as if I just had depression. “I felt like I had developed this condition that was going to last forever. I was never reassured that it was temporary.” Vancil believes the turning point in her recovery was when her menstrual cycle returned about three months after giving birth. She and Brian were staying in McPherson with their parents at the time. “For me, it was like a switch turned on,” she said. “One day, I was just better. Things started to lift. I started to feel like smiling again.” Her mother won’t soon forget receiving a call from Brian’s dad who said she was changing Tessa’s diapers and playing with her. Now, the two are as close as a mom and daughter can be. “They are attached at the hip,” Meats said, with laughter. “Sara’s an awesome mom.” — Health reporter Karrey Britt can be reached at 832-7190.

Success stories ——

It’s great to see former KU basketball players moving on to successful careers both on and off the court.


ansas University basketball fans have a special attachment to Jayhawk players, and it’s fun to follow their lives and careers after they leave Mount Oread. In a few cases, that means following their basketball careers in the NBA or abroad. A couple of former Jayhawks — Mario Chalmers for Miami and Nick Collison for Oklahoma City — are playing prominent roles in the current battle for the NBA championship. Cole Aldrich hasn’t seen any action in the current playoff series but is supporting his OKC teammates from the sideline. For many other former players, however, their future success isn’t so closely tied to the basketball court. One of the special pleasures of living in Lawrence is to have an opportunity to learn more about those players when they come back to visit their alma mater and relive some basketball memories. Some current and former professional players were on the rosters for last week’s Rock Chalk Roundball Classic played at Free State High School, but there also was a cancer doctor (T.J. Pugh), a medical student in his last year of residency (Christian Moody), a physical therapy student (Tyrel Reed), an asset manager for Goldman Sachs (Ryan Robertson) and other former Jayhawks pursuing careers outside of basketball. Some players on the alumni rosters played for a few years either in the NBA or abroad before moving on to other careers. Others never made it into the Jayhawks’ starting lineup (except maybe on Senior Night) but have achieved great professional success in other fields. It’s great that these players left KU with special memories that make them want to come back and participate in events like the Roundball Classic, which raised funds for three local families dealing with cancer. It’s also great to see former student athletes excelling in their chosen fields — both on and off the court.

David Shribman

Contrary to what your soccer trophy suggests ... despite every assurance of a certain corpulent purple dinosaur, that nice Mister Rogers and your batty Aunt Sylvia, no matter how often your maternal caped crusader has swooped in to save you ... you’re nothing special. These are the remarks of a remarkable English teacher at Wellesley High in Massachusetts, David McCullough Jr., who was pilloried, needlessly and thoughtlessly, for suggesting his young charges were not so extraordinary. They’re not. McCullough then delivered some advice quite at odds with the prevailing zeitgeist, comments that bear repeating here and, indeed, deserve repetition every year to those going forth from favored circumstances: “Be worthy of your advantages. And read ... read all the time ... read as a matter of principle, as a matter of selfrespect. Read as a nourishing staple of life. Develop and protect a moral sensibility and demonstrate the character to apply it.” McCullough was not the only person to share that theme this spring. Harvard President Drew Gilpin Faust spoke of “the updraft of inexplicable luck” in her baccalaureate speech.

Recognizing good luck No matter how hard we have worked or how many obstacles we have overcome, we are all here in some measure through no cause of our own. It started for most of us by being born into ... the small fraction of the Earth’s population that receives the benefits of fossil fuels. After we passed through that lucky portal there were others. Our parents, our schools, our friends, our health, financial aid, a Maurice Sendak book. Predecessors who fought for access to education. Someone who plucked us up out of nowhere and guided us, or a random event that turned our heads, or moved our hearts.

In their hearts and in our hearts we know that they, and many of us, were propelled to college or to lofty positions and ennobled job titles mostly by luck — perhaps the luck of birth, probably the luck of mentors, almost certainly the luck of being born into a century that needed our skills and in a country that rewarded them. (My particular skill is the ability to write a little essay at 1,050 words, printed with a petroleum byproduct on paper and then delivered by petroleum-fueled truck to households in my home city. It is not art, and most of the time it is not even artful. Had I come of age in a decade, like the next one almost certainly will be, that does not reward that, I might be indigent. The writer and reader of this column were lucky. The beginning of knowledge is understanding that.) But for all the luck Harvard graduates possess, consider how lucky they were to have sat in Memorial Church in Cambridge, Mass., to hear another lieutenant of the legion of luck, President Faust, deliver these sobering words: But the problem is that over time, opportunity can come to seem like an entitlement, ours because we deserve it. We cease to recognize the role of serendipity, and we risk forgetting the sense of obligation that derives from understanding that things might have been otherwise. If, as every Harvard undergraduate knows, love is about never having to say you’re sorry, then luck is about never taking anything for granted. Commencement is over, life is beginning, luck isn’t eternal. Nor is it sustaining. McCullough was right. We’re not special, almost none of us. And President Faust was right, too. Almost all of us have special opportunities and special responsibilities. Life consists of what we do with them. — David M. Shribman is executive editor of the Pittsburgh PostGazette.



From the Lawrence Daily JournalWorld for June 18, 1912: “Intense interest centers YEARS in the nomination at ChiAGO cago. The Journal-World IN 1912 has arranged ... that if a nomination is made at night the electric lights will tell the story. The Lawrence Railway & Light company have agreed to give the news in the following manner: One flash of the lights will mean that Taft is nominated; two flashes will mean that Roosevelt is nominated, and three flashes that a dark horse has been named. … If the nomination is made during the day time the fire whistle will blow. …The same signals will be used.” — Compiled by Sarah St. John

To the editor: The June 13 Journal-World presented news that the city plans to create new outdoor gallery, exhibition and performance space for the Lawrence Arts Center (so far so good!). However, the space is the site of the current Salvation Army building, south of the LAC. Curiously, this deal is being arranged precisely when the 900 N.H. hotel project is being debated north of the LAC. That proposal has been turned down unanimously three times by the Historical Resources Commission and has seen massive negative opinion from the nearby East Lawrence neighborhood and national historical district. However, the LAC deal is apparently contingent upon approval of two large downtown building projects — 900 N.H. and another planned north of Ninth Street. Both are proposed by development moguls Compton and Treanor; according to the Journal-World, they “would play key roles” in funding the $1 million acquisition. Money makes the world go ‘round, but it appears to me that money is also going to bring city approval around. If these deals go forward as planned, the city is clearly selling out to big-money development.

Why not put the open-air cultural space north of LAC and solve two problems at once? I am sure that funding can come from somewhere — maybe from the people of Lawrence who do not want to see two huge buildings next to downtown? After all, with the tax increment financing being requested, we will pay for it anyway! Let’s hope the city can act with integrity and not sell out completely. Town Peterson, Lawrence

Diversity measures To the editor: On June 10, you published an op-ed by George Will, which was entitled, “Higher Education bubble will pop.” In this article, Will derides the plethora of well-meaning but expensive initiatives to support programs promoting and enforcing “diversity” and its variants. My hunch is that there are more administrative staff members involving “diversity” than there are economists at many universities. Given their administrative importance, universities should pay closer attention to how they assess the results of their “diversity” programs. Intellectually, measures of diversity are a shambles. I know of at least five, none of which is consistent with eight elementary criteria of inequality measures. In

1999, I published an analyses of diversity measures and proposed an improvement, called diversity difference, which does meet the eight criteria. (Computational and Mathematical Organization Theory, pp. 45-65). No one, to my knowledge, has refuted its findings even after 12 years. No academic administrator has ever called to learn more. Universities pride themselves in fostering research and teaching and the use of research to improve many things. One would think that at least one university would consider improving how to measure diversity. The inability of existing “diversity” programs to document improvements may be due to inadequate measures. This inability or unwillingness of universities to “heal themselves” is another reason why the headline of the Will op-ed is likely to become true. Kenneth D. Mackenzie, Lawrence

James, Heat go up 2-1

Guess who’s comingg to dinner


Miami claims 91-85 victory MIAMI (AP) — LeBron James and the Heat remember the pain from a year ago. They needed two wins for a title and never got another, their superstar player coming up small in the biggest moments — a finals failure for which James has accepted the blame. He seems determined not to let it happen again. James had 29 points and 14 rebounds, and the Miami Heat took a 2-1 lead in the NBA Finals Big time with a 91-85 victory over player the Oklamakes big homa City T h u n d e r time plays on Sunday on the big night. Dwy- stage.” ane Wade had 25 points, seven re- — Heat reserve bounds and James Jones seven assists for the Heat, who were in this same position through three games last year, then didn’t win again against the Dallas Mavericks. “We carry that pain with us,” the Heat’s Chris Bosh said. “We think about it every day and that really helps us to succeed in this series.” James’ poor performance was part of the problem then, but he seems on top of his game this time. His 3-pointer sent the Heat to the fourth quarter with the lead, and he scored five straight Miami points when the Heat were building just enough cushion to hold off another late flurry by the Thunder. “Big time player makes big time plays on the big stage,” Heat reserve James Jones said. Game 4 is Tuesday night. Kevin Durant had 25 points for the Thunder, but picked up his fourth foul in the third quarter and had to go to the bench when they had seemed to have control of the game. “It was frustrating,” Durant said. “Of course we had a good lead and they came back and made some shots. We fouled shooters on the 3-point line twice. It’s a tough break for us, man. You know, I hate sitting on the bench, especially with fouls.” The Heat survived their own fourth-quarter sloppiness — nine turnovers — by getting enough big plays from their Big Three. James scored 30 and 32 points in the first two games, his two best finals performances. He fell just shy off another 30-point effort but reached his 20 points for the 20th time this postseason, two shy of Wade’s franchise record set in 2006. Gone is the player who seemed so tentative down the stretch last year in his second finals failure. He’s constantly on the attack now, all while defending Durant in key situations. “He was great. He’s been great for us all playoffs,” Heat

IF YOU COULD INVITE TO DINNER FOUR PEOPLE, LIVING OR DEAD, from KU football history, who would they be? Members of the J-W Staff selected the folks above for their dinner parties. They are, clockwise from top left, Don Fambrough, John Hadl, James McClinton, Chuck Long, Steven Johnson, Mark Mangino, Aqib Talib, Terry Donahue, Tony Sands, Phog Allen (with basketball), Chris Harris (No. 16) and John Riggins, smack dab in the middle (where else?).

Table set for summer series J-W Staff Reports

Inspired by a question posed in one of our weekly Kansas University football chats, we would like to introduce the first installment of a summer series that will take you on a trip down memory lane. From the top players and coaches ever to come through KU to those who gave the best quotes, which guys were underrated and which guys you’d like to have on your side in a dicey situation, the

following lists will provide not only an off-the-beaten path look at some of the biggest and brightest names in KU sports history, but also give you some insight into the guys who cover them for the Lawrence Journal-World and — good or bad. We’ll run a different list of four names from each guy every week throughout the summer months with input from sports editor Tom Keegan, who is preparing to begin his eighth year of covering KU

sports; associate sports editor Andrew Hartsock, whose time covering KU dates back to the late 1980s and includes all of the ups and downs of the past three decades; KU football beat writer Matt Tait, who has been with the paper since 2007 but also can draw on his experiences as a KU student in the late 1990s; and online editor Jesse Newell, who also has enjoyed two separate stints off covering the Jayhawks.

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Webb Simpson won the U.S. Open and put two more names into the graveyard of champions. Overlooked for so much of the week, Simpson emerged on a fog-filled Sunday at The Olympic Club with four birdies around the turn and a tough chip out of a hole to the right of the 18th green that he converted into par for a 2-under 68. He finished at 1-over 281, and it was enough to outlast former U.S. Open champions Jim Furyk and Graeme McDowell. Furyk bogeyed two of his last three holes. McDowell had a 25-foot birdie on the 18th to force a playoff, but it never had a chance. “Oh, wow,” Simpson said, watching from the locker room. Olympic is known as the “graveyard of champions” because proven major winners who were poised to win the U.S. Open have always lost to the underdog. One of those was Arnold Palmer in 1966, when he lost a sevenshot lead on the back nine. Perhaps it was only fitting that the 25-year-old Simpson went to Wake Forest on an Arnold Palmer scholarship. “Arnold has been so good to me,” Simpson said. “Just the other day, I read that story and thought about it. He’s meant so much to me and Wake Forest. Hopefully, I can get a little back for him and make him smile.” No one was beaming like Simpson, who followed a breakthrough year on the PGA Tour with his first major. No one was more disgusted than Furyk, in control for so much of the final round until he snap-hooked his tee shot on the par-5 16th hole to fall out of the lead for the first time all day, and was unable to get it back. Needing a birdie on the final hole, he hit into the bunker. He crouched and clamped his teeth onto the shaft of his wedge. Furyk made bogey on the final hole and closed with a 74, a final round without a single birdie. McDowell, who made four bogeys on the front nine, at Please see U.S. OPEN, page 5B

Kansas’ Garrett back from hoops/ministry trip By Gary Bedore

Kansas University sophomore basketball player Christian Garrett is seeing the world during a memorable spring/summer of 2012.

The 6-foot-3, 185-pound walk-on guard from Los Angeles recently spent two weeks in Poland and Germany with former KU guard Jordan Juenemann as a member of Athletes in Action’s college all-star team. In August, he and the Jay-

hawks will be heading to Switzerland and Paris to play six exhibition games. “I’m definitely excited to go back with my teammates and see another part of Europe that I haven’t seen. I think the food will be better where we’re going than Po-

land and Germany,” Garrett said with a smile. “Some places were nice. Some not very good at all. That’s how it is,” he added of restaurants overseas. “It’s definitely fun to travel, but it makes you appreciate America more. The United

States is so special. Traveling makes you appreciate it.” The Athletes in Action squad, which was coached by Baylor assistant Tim Maloney, went 6-0 on its trip against pro teams in Germany Please see GARRETT, page 3B Garrett

forward Udonis Haslem said. “I don’t know if he looks up at the clock or scoresheet, but he knows when we need him to make big plays and come through for us, and he comes through.” Bosh had 10 points and 11 rebounds for the Heat, who can win a second title by winning the next two games at home. That’s what they did in 2006, one of just two home teams to sweep the middle three games in the 2-3-2 format. They seemed out of it when Oklahoma City opened a 10-point lead midway through the third. But Durant had just gone out with 5:41 left on Wade’s baseline drive, though there appeared to be little or no contact. Thunder coach Scott Brooks decided to sit Russell Westbrook with him,

vided almost equally, with the players taking turns in the starting lineup. The roster consisted of the two KU players, plus Heslip and Deuce Bello of Baylor, Memphis’ Drew Barham, Virginia’s Akii Mitchell, Mercer’s Daniel Coursey, Marquette’s Jamil Wilson, Tennessee’s Josh Richardson and Texas Arlington’s Jordan Reves and Karol Gruszecki. “We focused on ministry, too, just how to play to glorify God and get close to the Lord,” Garrett said. “It was the best of both worlds, growing as a

basketball player and how God can influence your sport was the main focus.” Garrett said highlights included visiting Auschwitz in Poland and various sites in Berlin. “My personal highlight was the bond I developed with all the players there,” Garrett said. “Taking that and seeing what I have here with my teammates is so awesome. Basketball was great, ministry stuff was great, but really, meeting new people and seeing how God works in their lives was really cool.” Since he’s been back, he

has liked what he’s seen from KU’s players on the 2012-13 team. “I think we have depth, unlike last year,” Garrett said. “We are young again. Summer will help our new guys get used to stuff. The guys returning are really good — Travis (Releford, Garrett’s roommate), Elijah (Johnson) and Jeff (Withey) are our leaders. I think we’ll be good again. I’m excited to get to work. “After last year, everybody is excited to get back to that place,” he added of the Final Four. “We just have to work hard.”


Up first, the question that inspired it all: If you could invite to dinner four people, living or dead, from KU football history, who would they be? Let’s get on with the lists.

KANSAS CITY’S YUNIESKY BETANCOURT, RIGHT, IS CONGRATULATED by third base coach Eddie Rodriguez after hitting a two-run home run during the 15th inning, lifting K.C. to a 5-3 victory over the Cardinals on Sunday in St. Louis.

Royals win in 15th ————

Betancourt homer sinks Cards ST. LOUIS (AP) — Yuniesky Betancourt started the game on the Kansas City bench. He ended it by getting the biggest hit of the day. Betancourt was called upon in the first inning when Chris Getz sustained a leg injury. In the 15th, he hit a two-run homer with two outs to lift the Royals to a 5-3 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals on Sunday. “I don’t even know if I could (describe it),” Kansas City manager Ned Yost said. “We won, that’s all I can say.” Yost and Cardinals manager Mike Matheny combined to use all 43 position players in the fivehour game. Betancourt gave the Royals a 3-2 lead in the 14th on an RBI double, but Kansas City closer Jonathan Broxton (1-1) gave it back. Betancourt then came through with his next opportunities. “That’s destiny,” Betancourt said of his two RBI chances through an interpreter. “It was my opportunity to put the team ahead twice. I was trying to do my best and it happened.” Down to their last strike in the ninth, pinch-hitter Billy Butler homered off Cardinals closer Jason Motte for the Royals to tie it. The home run was Butler’s 12th, but the first of his career as a pinch hitter.

“He blew the pitch right before by me,” Butler said. “I just figured I had to shorten up and put the barrel on it. That’s what I did.” Jarrod Dyson began 15th inning with a bunt single off St. Louis reliever Eduardo Sanchez (0-1). Dyson was sacrificed to second and, after an out, Betan-

Matt Tait Don Fambrough — Really, he’d be all you needed. And saving him a place would ensure that the dinner party would go deep into the night. John Riggins — Pretty sure this one needs no explanation. Besides, could you imagine Fam and Riggo at the same table? Chuck Long — Say what you will about his coaching, but Long’s two years in town were loaded with great stories. I’d love to hear more. Chris Harris — One of my all-time favorites sharing Tim Tebow and Peyton Manning stories? Yes, please. Of course, with this crew (myself included) it could be tough for Chris to get a word in.

basket, Durant trying to get in position to draw a charge but watching helplessly as he picked up his fifth foul. James made the free throw for an 84-77 advantage with 3:47 to play. After another basket by James, the Thunder had one last burst — haven’t they always in this series? — ripping off six straight points to get within one before Bosh made a pair of free throws with 1:19 to play.

another chance when Westbrook was off from behind the arc. James hit a free throw for a four-point lead with 16 seconds to go and Wade added two to close it out. “It’s very hard,” James said. “Both teams are very active defensively and both teams make it hard on one another in the half court so when you get stops you try to get early offense, it always helps and we were able to do that a little bit.” The Thunder were just 4 of 18 on 3-pointers and hit only 15 of 24 free throws, unusually awful numbers for one of the league’s best offensive teams. Harden, the Sixth Man of the Year, shot 2 of 10 for his nine points. Westbrook finished with 19 points. After a split of the first two games, the series made its way from Oklahoma City, where fans in blue shirts filled every seat, to Miami, where white shirts hung on empty chairs just minutes before the tip.

Future KU guard Conner Frankamp is one of 14 finalists for USA Basketball’s men’s Under 17 world championship team. The final 12-member team is expected to be announced Wednesday. The U.S. team will compete in the 2012 Spain U17 Invitational on June 22-25 in Canary Islands, then travel to Lithuania for the worlds. The squad is led by Jabari Parker, a senior forward from Chicago’s Simeon High. Frankamp is a 6-foot guard from Wichita North who has comfinalist: mitted to KU.

Doyle joins KU team: Milton Doyle, the newest member of KU’s recruiting class of 2012, arrived on KU’s campus Sunday afternoon. His Jayhawker Towers roommate is fellow freshman Tyler Self.

want a break from talkin’ hoops. I’d like to pick his brain about that magical 1920 season, when he went 5-2-1 in his only year as a football coach at KU. Don Fambrough — Honestly, I grew a little weary of his anti-Missouri schtick, but darned if he didn’t make the world — or at least our little corner of it — a more interesting place. Tony Sands — I was a cub reporter for his 58-carry, 396-yard tour de force against Missouri in 1991. Though I recall him to be an awful conversationalist, I’d like to hear Tuxedo Tony say “It’s all about the kids” one more time. John Riggins — I seem to recall a story about Riggo livening up a dinner party with a certain U.S. Supreme Court justice; surely he’d provide a spark at mine. Dinner party, that is. I don’t have a justice.

nahue’s as smart a football guy as there is on the planet. And he knows how to tell a story, too. The youthful former UCLA boss was the most underrated college football coach of the 20th century, and if he could be talked into giving it another shot would figure out a way to win in today’s game. James McClinton — He’s funny and with any luck his passion for life would rub off on everybody. Such a dominant force for KU, his body type didn’t translate to the NFL, which is a shame because he was an energetic team-changer in college. Aqib Talib — As long as he’s not packing.

Jesse Newell Mark Mangino — I like good storytellers, and this foursome would make for an entertaining night. Mangino would have lots of good stories to tell. John Riggins — Riggins seems like a character when I see him on TV. Don Fambrough — Fambrough was a character from the times I talked to him in person. Steven Johnson — Steven Johnson just seems like the kind of guy I would hang out with outside of football because of his laid-back and up-front nature.

McDowell joins famous Olympic runners-up SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Graeme McDowell joined an exclusive club Sunday. No, not the one for twotime U.S. Open champions. McDowell’s missed birdie putt from about 25 feet on the historic 18th hole at The Olympic Club landed the Northern Irishman a silver medal and a poster that will hang in the stately clubhouse next to some of golf’s greatest from generations past. That’s where runners-up at this quirky course end up. For McDowell’s sake, hopefully the rest of his career doesn’t go the same way. In another dramatic finish at Olympic Club, Webb Simpson saved par from the rough on the 18th to close at 2-under 68 in a foggy final round and move McDowell and Michael Thompson into that group of silver medalists: Arnold Palmer, Ben Hogan, Tom Watson and Payne Stewart. The 32-year-old McDowell’s putt to force an 18-hole playoff never even had a chance. He pushed it left and took a long, slow walk to tap in for the most disappointing par of his life. “There’s a mixture of emotions inside me,” said McDowell, who closed with a 3-over 73. “Disappointment, deflation, pride. But mostly, just frustration.” History has not been kind to runners-up at this San Francisco staple. In one of the more bizarre coincidences in golf, three of the four players who finished second at the oldest athletic club in the United States were Hall of Famers who never won another major. The other, Stewart, won the U.S. Open the following year at Pinehurst, then died in a freak plane crash that fall. That accident is not why members call this place a “graveyard for champions.” It’s another, far less serious kind of heartbreak on the undulating Lake Course that has made unforgiving Olympic so famous. Palmer lost a seven-shot lead to Billy Casper with nine holes to go in 1966. Jack Fleck topped Hogan in an 18-hole playoff at Olympic in 1955. Scott Simpson won by a stroke over Watson in 1987, and a gust of wind blew Lee Janzen’s ball back to the ground minutes after it landed in a cypress tree on the fifth to help him best Stewart in 1998. Now add McDowell’s


least gave himself a chance with a 20-foot birdie putt on the 17th and a shot into the 18th that had him sprinting up the hill to see what kind of chance he had. The putt stayed left of the hole the entire way, and he had to settle for a 73. McDowell shared second place with Michael Thompson, who closed with a 67 and waited two hours to see if it would be good enough. Tiger Woods, starting five shots behind, played the first six holes in 6-over par and was never a factor. He shot 73 and finished six strokes back. Furyk was fuming, mostly at himself, for blowing a chance at his second U.S. Open title. He also was surprised that the USGA moved the tee up 100 yards on the 16th hole to play 569 yards. It was reachable in two shots for some players, though the shape of the hole featured a sharp turn to the left.

GRAEME MCDOWELL, OF NORTHERN IRELAND, REACTS as he walks off the 18th hole during the fourth round of the U.S. Open Championship on Sunday at The Olympic Club in San Francisco. name to those little black books in Olympic Club’s second-floor archives with the other major champions that settled for sliver. “This is sort of a new experience for me, I suppose, finishing second at a major championship,” said McDowell, who won the U.S. Open two years ago down the California coast at Pebble Beach. “I would rather have tried and failed than have never tried at all. I think someone fairly familiar must said that.” About the only consolation prize for McDowell — other than that $695,916 check — was being bested in the loser’s circle by a meltdown from another player on the leaderboard who tumbled even farther. Jim Furyk, the 2003 U.S. Open champion at Olympia Fields outside Chicago, bogeyed the final three holes to finish two shots back of Webb Simpson. While history might remember Furyk’s foiled finish more than anybody, the last image of the 112th U.S. Open belongs to McDowell’s putt. What should also be remembered is this former major champion’s fight all week on a course that restored “golf’s toughest test.”

The only round above par McDowell carded was the last. He bogeyed four holes on the front nine and made the turn seemingly out of contention and lost in the fog that blanketed these tight, twisting fairways. McDowell rallied with back-to-back birdies on Nos. 11 and 12 only to bogey the next two. As he had done all week, he put himself back in the hunt. McDowell holed a 20foot birdie putt on the 17th in one last fury. He followed with an approach shot on the 72nd hole of this championship that had him sprinting up the hill to find out where his chances of extended an excruciating week at least one more day. That was one obstacle he couldn’t overcome. “It’s like a really fast, scary roller coaster that you get on at the time and you’re not sure if you like it and it’s kind of scary,” McDowell said, recalling a conversation he had with his caddie, Ken Combo. “But once it’s done and you look back, you realize that you had a lot of fun and you would like to do it again, and that kind of sums up what it’s like to compete on the big stage at a major championship.”

“There’s no way when we play our practice rounds you’re going to hit a shot from a tee 100 yards up unless someone tells you,” Furyk said. “But the rest of the field had that same shot to hit today, and I’m pretty sure no one hit as (bad) a shot as I did. I have no one to blame but myself. “I was tied for the lead, sitting on the 16th tee,” he said. “I’ve got wedges in my hand, or reachable par 5s, on the way in and one birdie wins the golf tournament. I’m definitely frustrated.” But he gave Simpson his due. Of the last 18 players to tee off in the final round, Simpson was the only one to break par. That didn’t seem likely when Simpson was six shots behind as he headed to the sixth hole, the toughest at Olympic. That’s where he started his big run. His 7-iron landed in the rough and rolled 5 feet away for birdie. He made birdie on the next two holes, including a 15-footer on the par-3 eighth. And his wedge into the 10th settled 3 feet away, putting him in the mix for the rest of the day.

“It was a cool day,” Simpson said. “I had a peace all day. I knew it was a tough golf course. I probably prayed more the last three holes than I ever did in my life.” Simpson’s shot from the rough on the 18th hole went just right of the green and disappeared into a hole, a circle of dirt about the size of a sprinkler cap. With a clump of grass behind the ball, he had a bold stroke for such a nervy shot and it came out perfectly, rolling 3 feet by the hole for his muchneeded par. Then, it was time to wait. It was the third time in the last seven years that no one broke par in the U.S. Open. On all three occasions, the winner was in the locker room when the tournament ended. While Furyk will be haunted by his finish, McDowell can look back at his start — four bogeys on the front nine — and his inability to find fairways. Even on the last hole, his tee shot tumbled into the first cut of rough and kept him from being able to spin the ball closer.

Reconciliation first requires sincere regret Annie’s Mailbox

Marcy Sugar and Kathy Mitchell

and don’t cut the grass as neatly as her lawn service. She doesn’t want me staying up past midnight because the TV keeps her up, so I go to bed earlier than I’d like. My wife never complained about any of these things. Lucy is also not as attractive as I once thought, especially when all that makeup comes off. I want to return home and see whether anything can be salvaged from my marriage. My daughter says her mom might be willing to go to counseling, but my wife

tells me that there’s no way to regain the trust. Is it too late for my wife and me to rebuild? — Grass Not Greener Dear Grass: Maybe not, although we have to say your reasons are rather superficial. Lucy isn’t attractive enough? Your wife never complained about the TV? We hope there is more behind your regret than the disruption of your comfort levels. Please move out of Lucy’s house before you attempt to reconcile. It will show commitment. Then ask your wife to go with you for counseling. If she refuses, tell her you will be going on your own to learn how to become worthy of her trust. Dear Annie: I am sick of getting bad haircuts. I have found that stylists tend to cut hair the way they want to, not the way you want them to. I try my best to communi-




cate with the stylist, and I even bring in pictures of hairstyles I like. So I would like to tell all of the hairstylists out there to please listen to your customers. If you don’t believe a particular hairstyle will work, then discuss other options. Also, if you don’t feel confident creating a certain style, please be honest and say so. But don’t simply cut someone’s hair the way you want instead of the way the customer wants it. — Tired of Getting Bad Haircuts Dear Tired: Most women have a regular stylist who becomes familiar with their hair.

The new series “Hollywood Heights” (8 p.m., Nickelodeon) seems familiar in every way, from its generic title to its tales of teen talents soaring to superstardom. What sets the show apart is its open-ended duration. “Heights” will rattle on for 80 episodes, in the style of daytime soaps or Mexican telenovelas, following 18-year-old Loren Tate (Brittany Underwood, “One Life to Live”) as she goes from gushing music fan to famous performer. ‘‘Heights” will air every weeknight at this time. This isn’t the only ongoing prime-time soap on Nickelodeon. It also airs “House of Anubis,” an American-Belgian co-production set at an enchanted prep school.

Tonight’s other highlights

Atlanta becomes the setting for a new season of “Love & Hip Hop” (7 p.m., VH1).

Don witnesses a pier demolition on “Off Limits” (7 p.m., Travel).

Things go smoothly until they don’t on “Bunheads” (8 p.m., ABC Family).

Relationship experts can’t follow their own pearls of wisdom on the new reality series “Miss Advised” (9 p.m., Bravo). Cult choice Stacy Keach and Jeff Bridges star in the 1972 boxing drama “Fat City” (7 p.m., TCM), directed by John Huston.

close to you is on the warpath and lets you know how angry he or she is. Being charming or trying to make this person laugh simply will not work. Tonight: Let the fun begin, even if it is Monday.

Dear Annie: I’ve been married for 40 years and am now retired. While working, I became infatuated with “Lucy,” a co-worker. We became friends, and after one of our many lunches, we took the rest of the day off, stayed at her house, and you can guess what happened. Annie, it was a tragic mistake that I wish I could take back. Unfortunately, what’s done is done. My wife found out from a business associate, and she told me to leave. There was no discussion, no counseling, nothing. Let me tell you, the grass is NOT greener on the other side. Right now, my wife and I are separated, and I am living with Lucy, but I’m not happy. Lucy is not the person I thought she was. We don’t like the same music, the same TV programs or even the same foods. She complains that I use her computer too much

really like cake mixes. They’re stable and extremely versatile. Imagine my delight when I discovered Anne Byrn and her Cake Mix Doctor series. She takes an ordinary box of mix and turns it into a gourmet dessert with a flick of her blender. In my opinion, one of Miz Anne’s best recipes is for Chocolate Flan Cake. It’s a decadent blend of chocolate, pumpkin, caramel and cinnamon. Yeah. I’ll wait while you grab a napkin.

BITE Sighs

AUDREY LINTNER The following recipe is my homage to the Cake Mix Doctor. I wanted something that would pay tribute to her inspiration and run up as little kitchen time as possible. I give you the Three-In-One Apple Cake. Is it cake? A pie? Custard? Kind of. Is it easy and impressive? You bet! You’ll want your Bundt pan again, with a generous coating of grease on the inside. Preheat your oven to 325 degrees and break out your stand mixer. Crack three eggs into the bowl, and then add one 14-ounce can of sweetened condensed milk, one 12-ounce can of evaporated milk, half a teaspoon of almond extract and a teaspoon of vanilla. Blend these together on medium speed for a minute or two. Pour your custard blend into a bowl and set it aside. Into the now-emptied mixer bowl (no need to rinse bowl or beaters), dump one box of spice cake mix, three eggs and one 21-ounce can of apple pie filling. You bake-sale mavens have probably tried this part of the recipe before; it’s a classic. Blend the cake ingredients on low speed for about 30 seconds, and then crank the

THREE-IN-ONE APPLE CAKE uses a cake mix and has a custard top. speed up to medium and blend for another minute and a half. Scrape the bowl a lot; this will be a really thick batter. Grab a bottle of caramel sauce and pour 1/3 cup into your prepared pan. Scrape the cake batter on top of the caramel and smooth it with your spatula. Now for the super-sneaky awesome part. Remember the Alamo? I mean, the custard mix? Pour it gently over the top of your cake batter. No, don’t stir it together. Just let the whole mess float and clump however it wants. Set the pan onto a cookie sheet and put this assembly into your oven. Set the timer for 50-55 minutes and wait for the magic to work.

When the cake is done, it should spring back when touched with one finger. Give it a few extra minutes if need be. Set the Bundt pan on a wire rack and set your timer for 10 minutes’ worth of cooling time. If a big puddle of cake batter dribbled onto your cookie sheet, leave the oven on and let it bake for the 10 minutes; it’ll turn into a cookie! Find your flattest plate and invert it over the pan. Flip them over and (carefully) shimmy the pan loose. Gaze in awe and put the cake in the fridge to cool. Enjoy! — Audrey Linter can be reached at

Not the average 9-to-5



Bitten by the grooming bug at a young age BY CHANSI LONG


helbie Harrell is only 22 but has had an eight-year career. Harrell grooms dogs at Pawsh Wash, 1520 Wakarusa Drive. She’s been doing it since she was a teenager. Setters, schnauzers, spaniels, shih tzus, St. Bernards, bichons and poodles — Harrell does it all. Even cats. Before Harrell styled pets, she worked with farm animals. A local farm girl, Harrell would shear sheep for shows through 4-H. It was the sort of thing every 4-H member did, but for Harrell it was something more. Harrell loved animals. And she pursued that love. It was her mother’s poodle, Mandy, that initially aroused her interest in dog grooming. The family had Mandy groomed professionally. And Harrell would pester and plead, begging the groomer until she finally agreed to impart the skill. The groomer hired Harrell, starting her on baths. Harrell bathed dogs for two and half years: bathing, blow drying, clipping nails and cleaning ears. Then it was decided that Harrell should learn to cut hair. At first, she would watch other groomers in action. Then she learned how to wield the scissors herself. Now Harrell can finish any breed of dog in less than two hours. This includes bathing, clipping, cleaning ears, shaving and brushing. “There are hard dogs and easy dogs, and you’re going to get bit once or twice,” said Harrell. “Shih tzus and Yorkies are the easiest. I always like to have them in the middle of my day, to have a little break.” There’s a different clip for each dog breed. And in addition to the show standard, each owner has a mental image of what they would like their dog to look like. Treating the event like a human haircut, owners often bring pictures of styles they want to see on their dogs. Sometimes the styles are complex. But for Harrell, the hardest dogs to groom are also the most fun. “With poodles and bichons, you have to sculpt the dog’s structure to make it look the way it’s supposed to,” said Harrell. “They’re harder and you have to think more, but it’s worth it. You have so much play and creativity that you can work with.” Harrell also grooms cats, an anomaly among groomers.

PET STYLIST SHELBIE HARRELL grooms a poodle at Pawsh Wash, 1520 Wakarusa Drive in Lawrence. She has been grooming pets for eight years and does dogs and cats. “Not very many groomers will mess with cats,” she said. “From their claws to their mouths … some haven’t been groomed very much at home. They fight a lot.” Dogs will fight, too, sometimes. But usually they are more at ease in the water. “There are some of those farm dogs that only get groomed once a year and they don’t care for it. Maybe puppies, on first groom, they don’t really care for it, but once they know, after that first groom, they tend

to start relaxing a lot,” Harrell said. And when the dogs relax, Harrell gets to work. But the best part of the job, said Harrell, is after the bathing, the brushing, the clipping and cleaning. The best part, she said, is the transformation. “I like to see the difference when the dog walks into the door and it looks like a mutt, and it comes out looking like a show dog. It’s really nice to see the difference … and then to know that you did it.”

Cost for middle-income family to raise baby: $235,000 WASHINGTON (AP) — For $235,000, you could indulge in a shiny new Ferrari — or raise a child for 17 years. A government report released Thursday found that a middle-income family with a child born last year will spend about that much in child-related expenses from birth through age 17. That’s a 3.5 percent increase from 2010. The report from the Agriculture De-

partment’s Center for Nutrition Policy and Promotion said housing is the single largest expense, averaging about $70,500, or 30 percent of the total cost. Families living in the urban Northeast tend to have the highest child-rearing expenses, followed by those in the urban West and the urban Midwest. Those living in the urban South and rural areas face the lowest costs.

The estimate also includes the cost of transportation, child care, education, food, clothing, health care and miscellaneous expenses. The USDA has issued the report every year since 1960, when it estimated the cost of raising a child was just over $25,000 for middle-income families. That would be $191,720 today when adjusted for inflation.

Housing was also the largest expense in raising a child back in 1960. But the cost of child care for young children — negligible 50 years ago — is now the second largest expense as more moms work outside the home. The report considers middleincome parents to be those with an income between $59,400 and $102,870.

Baby technology BY SARA SHEPHERD


efore their first child arrived, Lindsay Vise and her husband — like many new parents — encountered more than they expected when they walked into a store to register for baby gifts. “It was just completely overwhelming,” Vise said. “We just had no idea. We didn’t know what we needed and what we didn’t.” Ella Cate Vise is now 4 months old, and her mother said the family ended up with a few products they’ve never used and a few others it feels like they couldn’t live without. With new baby supplies coming on the market seemingly every day, it’s no wonder parents have a hard time keeping up. Some products are actually must-haves for infants, many are nice but not necessary, and a few that seem beneficial could actually be dangerous. ESSENTIALS While every family’s situation is different, a certain amount of product research can help anyone make good selections, said registered nurse Melissa Hoffman, Lawrence Memorial Hospital’s community education specialist for prenatal and parenting programs. Everyone needs basics such as bottles and blankets, Hoffman said. When it comes to choosing bigger-ticket items, safety-approved car seats and a crib or bassinet are essential., and consumerreports. com provide reliable information about safety and quality. When it comes to add-on products for car seats and cribs, Hoffman said, use caution. In many cases, car-seat additions such as padded inserts or head supports have not been approved and could actually compromise the effectiveness of the seat, she said. The same goes for cribs — which are safer if they’re product-free. Avoid baby monitors and other products that claim to reduce the risk of SIDS, the National Institute of Child Health and Development warns. To lessen risk of suffocation, infants should be placed on their backs — preferably in a sleep-sack — in a crib or bassinet with no bumpers, no toys and no extra blankets or devices. NICE TO HAVE When it comes to baby products, the category of “not essential but nice if you want to spend the money” is vast. A few examples:

A bowl of warm water can do the same thing as a bottle warmer, Hoffman said.

An infant tub can make bath time more convenient Richard Gwin/Journal-World Photos for parents, but a sink or a regular tub with a few inches HOLDING A DIAPER TOGETHER can be troublesome with old-fashioned pins. The of water does the job just as well.

If you don’t have a specialized diaper-disposing trash update is a Snappi, a plastic piece that holds together a diaper safely.

ONE-WEEK-OLD MAGGIE STULTZ, ABOVE, RESTS in her mother’s lap. Nursing a baby can be cumbersome, but moms and babies can get a boost with the help of a Boppy, a U-shaped pillow that slips around a mother’s waist and helps support the baby.

MONDAY, JUNE 18, 2012




ELLA CATE VISE, 4 MONTHS, sits in her carrier complete with an array of toys to play with last week at a support group for new mothers at Lawrence Memorial Hospital. A car seat is a necessity, but use care when looking at after-market additions.

“Everything is just so much better for the comfort of the babies and the moms. Do you need them to raise a baby? No. Does it make it easier, especially here in our culture? Yes.” — Mary Donnally, a Lawrence grandmother can, a covered trash can that locks to prevent toddlers from opening it does the trick.

If you want your baby close to you as you go about your day, parents have carried children on their hips for hundreds of years. However, Hoffman said, slings and other carriers — used according to directions — can make “baby-wearing” a lot easier. “It’s just a nice way to have the baby with you, but without having to physically hold the baby the whole time,” she said.

As for Vise, of Lawrence, her favorite products include a Diaper Genie disposal system, as well as a U-shaped Boppy pillow she uses for propping up her baby for both breast-feeding and playtime. Ella Cate isn’t ready for it yet, Vise said, but she also has a baby-food maker that cooks and purees, in hopes of making feedings cheaper and more convenient. Cassandra Elwell — wife of Channel 6 chief meteorologist Matt Elwell — had her fourth child, Brooks, six and a half months ago. When it comes to products, she said, “I think most of it’s not needed, but I have my regular standbys for sure.” Among those are a mesh feeding bag she’s filled with ice for teething instead of food, and snack cups with covers that little ones can reach in but snacks don’t fall out. MODERN MARVELS Mary Donnally, Lawrence, had five children between 1976 and 1984. She used cloth diapers for all but the last, she said, and between the plastic pants covering the diapers and detergents that weren’t as gentle as they are now, her babies’ bottoms weren’t always happy. “Oh, we had rashes all the time,” she and safekids.

said. “We didn’t have the right products.” Then, Donnally said, even Johnson’s Baby Shampoo irritated tiny eyes. Later, the no-tears formula improved that. Now, there are even special detergents for washing cloth diapers — which have come back into vogue but with modern conveniences such as plastic snapstyle closures instead of long, sharp pins and breathable diaper covers instead of the old plastic pants. Donnally now has six grandchildren and also volunteers helping new moms in the hospital’s weekly

breast-feeding support group. She marvels at how much safer products have become, and how much more convenient, particularly for mothers on the go. “Everything is just so much better for the comfort of the babies and the moms,” Donnally said. “Do you need them to raise a baby? No. Does it make it easier, especially here in our culture? Yes.” — Features reporter Sara Shepherd can be reached at 832-7187. Follow her at

The Ugly Meter app a tool for bullying in the wrong teen hands Double TAKE Dr. Wes: The Ugly Meter. Sounds like something from a young adult novel, but it’s actually an app a lot of teens and tweens have downloaded to their phones. It helps them determine with great accuracy just how unattractive they and their friends really are. Seriously? Nope. It’s just a random number generator. A prank. Something to astound your friends at a bar on a Saturday night when you’ve had a couple of beers and are feeling a little pesky. “Hey look dude. I just pulled down this gnarly app that’ll prove you’ve got the nastiest mug in the place. Heh heh. Look here. It gave you a nine, man!” Wait. Something’s wrong with my little scenario. What’s your 14-year-old kid doing at a bar? Exactly my point. The Ugly Meter really got its big break on Howard Stern’s XM radio show, the kind of entertainment we want our teens digging into on a school morning. I recently did a segment on St. Louis Channel 5 (find it at that was tackling this problem as another kind of bullying, that kids were apparently using this silly app to make fun of each other. And therein lies the rub. What’s funny (apparently) for adults is mean when used by kids. Even dumb humor takes a certain level of abstract reasoning, and that only comes at the end of adolescence. Tweens and early teens find fun in something like the Ugly Meter not because it’s selfdeprecating or a good-natured joke between buddies, but because it insults and hurts other’s feelings. For kids,

actually. In fact, I recommend Angry Birds over this thing any day. DR. WES CRENSHAW AND MIRANDA DAVIS

Miranda: While I won’t be downloading The Ugly Meter anytime soon, I can see the scenario in my head just as Wes describes: A group of middle school kids passing an iPhone around and mocking each other, or bullying someone who’s number jumps off the screen. This technology, which can be downloaded straight to the phone without parental consent, is why parents need to keep a good eye on what their preteens are doing on their smartphones. Movie ratings were invented so parents knew what to expect when they showed up at the theater. Video game ratings worked the same way. Their sole purpose is to avoid exposing young teens to content that is too mature for them. But iPhone apps don’t have these ratings (however good an idea that might be), so it is up to parents to decide what content their child is and is not allowed to download.

that’s what’s funny about it. Like giving someone a wedgie in front of the whole class or posting a YouTube of their most embarrassing moment. I’m pretty sure “The Dapper Gentlemen” didn’t have that in mind when they thought this app up. I suspect they thought, “Toss me another beer, dude, and let’s code out something really dumb.” For teens, the best thing about The Ugly Meter and similar humor is that it can start a dialogue between parents and kids about what’s funny versus what’s hurtful and why. While I wouldn’t make a big deal out of your kid having The Ugly Meter on his phone, I’d treat it like every other app and have a serious discussion of its real purpose and ethical use — which isn’t much,

Though many adults will not understand the harm of this prank app, parents also have to remember that along with R-rated movies and excessively violent video games, the type of humor their kids are exposed to needs to be monitored as well. Ask yourself how you would feel as a 14-year-old, already uncomfortable in your own skin, if somebody’s phone said you were terribly unattractive. Not too great, I would imagine. There is no stopping your kid from coming in contact with nonsense like this, even if you don’t allow the app to stay on their phone. But this is again another opportunity to review your family’s guidelines on technology. It is essential to measure your own child’s maturity and know what they are capable of handling, then making a plan for their use of technology.

Big-name KU fans put on fundraiser for K.C. children’s hospital BY JULIE DUNLAP


ansas University alumnus Rob Riggle anticipates a full house this weekend as he once again teams up with fellow actors Paul Rudd, also a KU alumnus, and notorious Jayhawk fan Jason Sudeikis, to co-host the third annual Big Slick Celebrity Weekend, a benefit for Children’s Mercy Hospital. The Big Slick kicks off Friday night with a celebrity wiffle ball game at Kauffman Stadium and culminates Saturday in a celebrity poker tournament at Harrah’s Casino followed by an auction and entertainment at the Midland Theatre, all in Kansas City. For Riggle, the decision to ante up was easy. “I was invited to help with a benefit for Children’s Mercy in 2009 and got to tour Riggle the hospital,” Riggle says. “When I saw what incredible care they provide, saving lives in new ways every year — I even observed a heart surgery they performed on a 9-day-old baby — I was sold.” Riggle soon hatched a plan for a celebrity poker tournament in Kansas City. Rudd and Sudeikis, both of whom grew up within miles of Riggle in Overland Park, enthusiastically agreed to co-host without hesitation and poured themselves into making it happen. “Our job became finding celebrities willing to give up a weekend out of their own lives to help out,” Riggle says. Back on the home(town) front, this three-of-a-kind enlisted the help of their families in coordinating the celebrity-filled weekend, a mission they gladly accept every year. “They are our foot soldiers,” says Riggle, who is also a lieutenant colonel in the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve. After raising more than $300,000 within the first two years for the CMH general fund, this year’s Big Slick weekend will specifically benefit the Children’s Mercy Cancer Center. Lawrence resident Kristine Burrichter is delighted with the support these jokers are lending to CMH, where her daughter,

Sarah, 8, has undergone treatment for a brain tumor for nearly four years. “We have been blown away with the care Sarah and, really, our entire family has received at Children’s Mercy,” Burrichter marvels. “The staff’s consistently positive disposition is very inspiring. They care for Sarah, and her siblings too, to the point where we never think of our visits there as ‘treatments,’ we just think of them as going to see friends.” Lawrence pediatrician Anne Van Garsse agrees: “We are fortunate to have such outstanding pediatric specialists in close proximity. Children’s Mercy is the No. 1 place utilized for our patients who need specialized care.” This year’s Big Slick’s star-studded guest list, ready to play and entertain all weekend, includes actors Jon Hamm, Eric Stonestreet, David Koechner, Nick Kroll and many more.

PUREE EXCITEMENT Parents baby their little ones with homemade baby food



ome local babies may never recognize the Gerber baby face. That’s because their baby food doesn’t come from a jar — instead, it comes from their own kitchens. Parents say they make their own baby food for many reasons, including saving money, maximizing nutrition or avoiding allergens. Regardless of why, all local parents agree on one thing: It’s easy. “If you’re preparing food for your family, you always have a little left to make for your little one,” says Marsha Stetler, food program home visitor with the Douglas County Child Development Association. “And it is easy to prepare and easy to store.” Christina Hobbs has made food for her son, Camden, 18 months, since he started on solid food last summer. “I have lost 45 to 50 pounds, and I don’t eat any food that is processed. I decided that if I don’t eat processed food, then I’m not going to feed it to my baby, either,” Hobbs says. “I’ve never given him a bite of anything I didn’t taste myself.” Kristen Walker’s son, Gunner, 19 months, has always had homemade food because it is cheaper than the jars, even when they are on sale. Walker says many of the foods she made were 25 cents per serving or less, compared with at least 50 cents per serving of the jar food. “My husband is an extremely picky eater, so we also hoped the homemade food wouldn’t make him

Hobbs makes all of Camden’s food. picky,” Walker says. “Now, he pretty much eats whatever we put in front of him.” Hobbs says she knew she was doing the right thing when she made her very first batch of food for Camden. “I made carrots for the baby, and I also had a jar of carrots. I looked at the color compared to the jar — mine were fluorescent orange, compared to the ones in the jar, which were brownish orange,” she says. “I didn’t know what went into the jar to make it that color.”

BABY FOOD GADGETS Baby Bullet food processor (made by the company that makes the Magic Bullet): Purees food and includes storage jars and a recipe book. A steamer is sold separately. $60-$80

What gadgets or technology do you use to help you parent?

TO PREPARE HER SON CAMDEN’S FOOD, Christina Hobbs uses the Baby Bullet for pureeing, which comes with storage jars. Walker has different preparation methods, depending on the food. She smashes cooked sweet potatoes and acorn squash to the right consistency. She found that peas worked best in the blender, and she puts other foods in the food processor. As Gunner got older, Walker bought rotisserie chicken from the grocery store, cut off the breast meat, added some liquid and pureed it in the food processor. Over time, she gradually added herbs and spices to both vegetables and meat for flavor, careful to avoid salt and known allergens. She used four-ounce plastic storage containers to divide the food into serving portions and freeze it until she was ready to use it. Dixon uses the Beaba Babycook Baby Food Maker that a friend loaned her. It both steams and purees the food. She sorts it into ice-cube trays to freeze it, then sends the ice cubes to child care in a sealed baggie. All three parents say that preparing the baby food themselves has just become part of the routine and makes the baby’s meals similar to their own. “You can craft it to whatever your family does. It’s not intimidating at all,” Walker says. Hobbs says she hopes that this nutritious, homecooked food will set the tone for Camden’s meals with the family in the future. “I refuse to be a short-order cook in my own house,” Hobbs says. “I am trying to keep the family eating the same things.”

Bridget Dixon makes baby food for her 7-month-old son, Quincy, and sends it to his child care with him while she works so she can be confident she knows what he is eating each day. She says even though she has two children and works full-time, making the food is much easier than she thought it would be. “Some people think I’m way more crafty and Martha Stewart than I actually am,” Dixon says. “If there was too much work involved, I wouldn’t be doing it.” Stetler, from the Douglas County Child Development Association, visits home day cares as part of her job and says some child care providers make baby food for all of the children they care for in their homes. Dixon sends food with Quincy once or twice a week and has it stored in the freezer where he goes. Hobbs, Walker and Dixon each have different approaches — and different kitchen tools — they have used to make the food. Hobbs uses a pressure cooker to steam the vegetables, then purees them in the Baby Bullet, a food processor designed especially for making and storing baby food. She has frozen the food in ice-cube-tray-sized portions and also uses the storage jars that came with the Baby Bullet. “I’m a multitasker: I would put 2 sweet potatoes in the pressure cooker, and in the time it took me to unload and load the dishwasher, they’d be cooked,” Hobbs says. She insists she is not a “gadget person,” but the Baby Bullet makes the food just the right consistency.

Omaha’s outstanding offerings J

THERE’S ALWAYS MONKEY BUSINESS going on at the Henry Doorly Zoo in Omaha.

ust about 200 miles away from Lawrence, Omaha, Neb., offers summer fun galore. A plethora of attractions — including a worldclass zoo; an amazing 92,000-square-foot art center; and Old Market, a historic neighborhood filled with shops, pubs, restaurants and entertainment venues — makes it a great weekend getaway for families. Fresh from a $37 million expansion and renovation, the Hilton Omaha is a great place for you to hang your hat while exploring Omaha. The saltwater pool in the Health Club and Spa is refreshing (and you’ll love the fact that there’s no chlorine to sting your eyes), plus there’s also a whirlpool, sauna and 6,000 square-foot fitness area. If you desire more pampering, you can book a Hot Stone Massage or Four-Layer Face Lift at the Spa.


DAYTRIPPER Another great reason to stay at the Hilton Omaha is the complimentary shuttle service (within a 3-mile radius of the hotel). That means you can park your car in the hotel’s garage for the weekend and catch rides from the friendly staff to Old Market, the Hot Shops Art Center or the Henry Doorly Zoo. Baby boomers may remember being glued to the television set as kids while watching “Mutual of Omaha’s Wild Kingdom,” hosted by zoologist Marlin Perkins. The spirit of Perkins is alive and well at the Henry Doorly Zoo & Aquarium, especially in the Mutual of Omaha Wild Kingdom Pavilion, which features daily animal encounters. The zoo offers many “total immersion” experiences, which means that hummingbirds will be flying right in front of your face in the Desert Dome (the world’s largest indoor desert, located under the world’s largest geodesic dome), bats will be hovering near you in a cave in Kingdoms of the Night, lemurs might be running all around you in the Lied Jungle (the world’s largest indoor rainforest), and sharks will be swimming over your head in the Suzanne and Walter Scott Aquarium. The zoo is open daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. through Oct. 31. Admission prices are $13.50 for adults, $9.00 for children ages 3-11 and $12.50 for seniors 65 and older. The entertaining Antarctic penguin exhibit alone is well worth the admission price. The Hot Shops Art Center got its name from the molten nature of some of the artwork created via forges, welders and kilns that is showcased in this sprawling complex, once the home of the Serta Mattress Factory. More than 80 studio artists welcome the public to ob-

During your visit you might find an artist producing hand-blown glass or watch a sculptor making pots from clay. With three floors of studios (and four art galleries) to wander through, you’re sure to find a piece of art you can’t live without. The center also offers classes to the public, including “Come Create It” workshops. From African drumming to painting to jewelry making to creating sock monsters, you’ll definitely get in touch with your inner artist. Omaha’s historic warehouse district, the Old Market, is currently Nebraska’s No. 1 tourist attraction. There are no big box or chain stores here — just unique specialty shops, charming pubs and homegrown restaurants. After a day spent browsing in the one-of-a-kind boutiques, lunching at a lively restaurant like the Upstream Brewing Company and kicking back at The Old Market Tavern, you’ll know why Omaha considers the Old Market its crown jewel. Fairmont Antiques & Mercantile boasts 20,000 square feet of shop-

ping, including a candy shop, Hollywood Candy, offering vintage sweets you’ll remember from your childhood; antiques — everything from paper memorabilia to old speakers once used at drive-in movie theaters — and an old-fashioned soda fountain. The Old Market Candy Shop is a nostalgic trip back to the penny candy stores of yesteryear, and trooping in there (and sniffing the freshly-made fudge) is as much a treat for parents as it is for their youngsters. Entering Tannenbaum Christmas Shop (where it’s always Christmas!) will bring a smile to even the staunchest Scrooge’s lips, and you’ll swear you can hear choirs of angels singing carols as you browse among hundreds of holiday keepsakes. And bibliophiles will think they’ve died and gone to heaven when they step inside Jackson St. Booksellers, a treasure trove of every possible genre of used books. (I could spend whole days amidst the stacks, without complaint.) Families love Spaghetti Works in the Old Market for its cheap, flavorful all-youcan-eat pasta combinations, flavor-infused sodas and bountiful salad bar, which is displayed in the back of a truck. Afterward, head to Ted & Wally’s Premium Ice Cream Shop for real homemade ice cream, made the old-fashioned way — slow-churned with rock salt and ice. I can attest that their root beer ice cream is highly addictive. — Nancy Pistorius can be reached at

Backyard Campout day promotes time outdoors BY JENNIFER SALVA


chool’s out, and it may be getting hot, but that doesn’t mean kids have to stay in. June is Great Outdoors Month, as first declared by President Bill Clinton in 1998. In the spirit of getting outside, the National Wildlife Federation is putting on the Great American Backyard Campout on Saturday. The group encourages families to stay outdoors together and break out of the usual summer routine. “I just remember going camping all the time as a kid,” says Connor Goslin of Olathe, whose family frequents Lawrence for Haskell Indian Nations University activities. “If we weren’t camping, we were kayaking; if we weren’t kayaking we were fishing.” His father, Steve Goslin, began taking his two sons on camping trips and other outdoor activities at the ages of 3 and 5. In addition to Arkansas fishing trips and backyard campouts, the family has visited many nearby locations such as Hillsdale, Pomona Lake and Clinton State Park. Steve Goslin recommends camping as a family because it gets the kids out of the house and away from the television so they can have fun, play games and “not break anything in the house.” On their adventures, Goslin planned activities to enjoy one another’s company as well as include a hidden educational experience. He urged his boys to “try to find different types of rock, whether it was igneous or sedimentary. Try to find things that were manmade.” Goslin’s family also has tried geocaching, described as “a real-world outdoor treasure hunting game” on geocaching. com. Players use GPS devices to find hidden containers, or geocaches. The website explains how the activity works and lists nearby caches. But before looking for hidden treasure, start out by bringing the basics on your camping trip. “I always manage to forget my toothbrush. Remember to put that on your list,” says Jennifer Beck, outdoor shop manager at Sunflower Outdoor & Bike, 804 Mass. The shop offers a wide range of equipment to accommodate any style of camping “from car camping, which is a lot of family camping, where you drive to the spot … all the way up to the really light backpacking tents and gear,” Beck says. To ensure a family camping trip goes smoothly, it is important to be well prepared, especially when young children

THE GREAT AMERICAN BACKYARD CAMPOUT is Saturday, promoted by the National Wildlife Federation. For more family camping information and ideas, visit the Great American Backyard Campout website at come along. Beck says she has “been noticing that a lot of people when they’re camping like to bring a lot of small toys that kids like to play with, so get a Frisbee so you have something to toss around when you’re in the camp.” For family camping, Beck recommends a brand called Kelty, which is offered at the shop. “Kelty is a great company because it’s usually a great price point for families,” says Beck. The brand offers a variety of gear, including tents, sleeping bags, backpacks and accessories, as well as childsized equipment. Sunflower also offers products that combine practicality and entertainment, such as tables with game boards on the surface and lanterns that accommodate MP3 players. “We have an ice-cream ball roller,” Beck says, indicating a translucent plastic ball that can be rolled or tossed back and forth to make home-made ice-cream with rock salt and ice. “It’s a fun project that they can be playing with something, then have a reward at the end.” And you don’t necessarily have to go far — or spend a lot — to take a camping trip, Beck says. “Lawrence really does have some great areas where families can get outdoors,” she says. “We’ve been trying really hard as a business to have those affordable prices, and things that are appropriate for where we live in the Midwest.” Sunscreen, bug repellent, plenty of water, food staples, personal safety items, a first aid kit and “a good dose of common sense,” are items you should never forget

on your camping trip, says Jerry Schecher, Clinton State Park manager. Keeping safe is just as important as planning activities and keeping kids entertained during a camping trip. Schecher advises campers to educate

themselves before they set out on a trip, especially if they are inexperienced, and, above all, “be aware of environmental dangers.” Schecher lists the risks of outdoor activities as sunburn, bug and tick bites, and the dangers of fire. Schecher advises campers to make lists of supplies and plan how your family or group campers will deal with a sunburn, injury or illness. It is also important to plan ahead about how kids will keep entertained and out of trouble. “Sometimes parents can get carried away in every little detail of planning their trip and forget to ask their children what they would like to do,” says Schecher. “Involve kids in decision making.” Planning a trip together can be part of a family bonding experience and can teach kids organizational and safety skills. Once a family or group of campers is prepared, they can enjoy the many activities that Clinton State Park and other campgrounds have to offer. “They boat, they fish, they hike, they bike, they fly kites, they do remote control cars, they swim, they fish, they spend time around the campfire enjoying each other’s company,” Schecher says.

Lawrence LAUNDRY


While I wasn’t looking for any specific items, I was able to buy a variety of great, unexpected items, and they all fit well into my budget. ALI EDWARDS

BRACELET: 25 cents.


t’s summertime in Lawrence and prime season for one of my favorite Saturday activities: garage sales. While it’s a bit risky to venture into a sale of someone else’s unwanted goods trying to find a specific item, garage sales have often surprised me with the amount of amazing stuff I can nab on the cheap. For the past few weekends, I’ve gotten up early to hunt for the best Lawrence garage sales, and while I wasn’t looking for any specific items, I was able to buy a variety of great, unexpected items, and they all fit well into my budget. From my adventures around Lawrence, I found consistency among the types of items to rely on garage sales for. Here’s my opinion on the best bets for garage sales. HOUSEWARES People in Lawrence have some weird stuff. Beyond the oversized photos of giraffes or gigantic gold lamp sculptures you may run into, there are some gems to be found if you’re patient enough. I’ve been without a floor-length mirror for about a year, but a garage sale I went to a couple weeks ago had 20 square mini-mirrors

to play dress-up in them when she was younger. Sweet? Yes, but I couldn’t help but feel like I was stealing away something of deep sentimental value. ACCESSORIES

THESE 50 CENT SHOES came with a little bit of history from the seller. from IKEA for $10. I bought them and went about pasting them on my wall. I now have a floor to ceiling mirror, and I paid the same amount that I would have at Walmart. SHOES There’s something a little freaky about buying shoes from a garage sale for me.

Don’t get me wrong, I buy shoes from secondhand stores all the time. However, handing cash over to the person whose feet have been in the shoes you’re buying is just sometimes a little too much, especially when they start reminiscing about the memories they made in the shoes. I found some red pumps from the ’80s for 50 cents, and the woman selling them began telling me about how she used

I’ll never mind paying 25 cents for a fantastic piece of jewelry, and that’s just what I did one recent weekend. While you can expect to spend about $15 for a cool piece of vintage jewelry at a secondhand shop or antique store, garage sale necklaces, bracelets and rings are usually sold for less than $1. Don’t go out trying to find a predetermined style of jewelry because you’ll inevitably be disappointed. Instead, go in with an open mind and a couple quarters; you’ll leave satisfied. This summer, if you’re on a budget but still need to quench your shopping thirst, head out to a few Lawrence garage sales before you hit the stores. — Ali Edwards can be reached at

The male midlife crisis


25% Off

River City Jules

Any one clothing item


very man will go through a midlife crisis. They either bring home a new car or a new woman,” I clearly remember my grandmother, Mama, telling me throughout most of my adult life. “Boy, was I happy when your grandfather came home in a red sports car!” I, too, breathed a sigh of relief when my husband pimped out his Grand Prix with racing stripes on the sides and hood for his 40th birthday. It wasn’t until talking recently with my brothers and sister, though, that I realized the significance of our dad’s brief fling with his beloved Mazda RX-7. If Mama’s theory was correct, Dad hit his midlife crisis at 35. With two daughters in grade school and twin sons at home, I imagine Dad, a former prom king, was beginning to feel the taunting sting of time’s rapid passing. Somewhere between attending parentteacher conferences and mowing the lawn, Dad’s inner rock star burst free of its suburban shackles and led him to the nearest Mazda dealer, where he bought a shiny blue sports car with two bucket seats and zero room for children. Mom approved whole-heartedly. After all, her own mother’s famous words had confirmed that this was the best-case scenario as Dad crossed the natural bridge from “Night Fever” to “Turn that racket down and get off my lawn!” And as a side benefit, on special occasions during which she would heat up TV dinners and call a babysitter just before instructing us to go straight to bed after “Fantasy Island,” Mom could ditch the white station wagon and, simultaneously, her four (beautiful) children for a night. But the RX-7 had some drawbacks. For one, my former college football-playing fa-

ther, at 6-foot-2 and 240 pounds, had to neatly and carefully origami-fold himself to fit in the driver’s seat. And, while bringing out the wild and crazy side of his youth gone by was certainly fun, he racked up three tickets within a two-week span, a problem he never experienced in the old Chevy. And then there were those four (beautiful) kids. Dad tried to prove to Mom once during a bout with buyer’s remorse that the car was family friendly by cramming all of us in for a drive around the block. I sat in the front seat, Kari laid down in the hatch, and Philip and Michael sat on the 2-inch plastic strip across the center of the car Dad had convinced them was the back seat. “Where are the seat belts?” they asked. “Stop asking questions,” Dad replied as he started the engine. In the end, the RX-7 was replaced by a ‘65 Oldsmobile Mom affectionately named “The Armpit” after its interior aroma. But not even a two-year sentence with the armpit could crush Dad’s “steeze” (that’s style and ease, for you squares). And to this day he remains, to me, the coolest dad a girl could ever hope for. (For my dad, and for all dads for whom one day is not enough to celebrate.)

f you have a door that opens or shuts on its own, it could be a poltergeist, but more likely the house has settled and the door frame is no longer square. The correct way to fix the problem is to remove the door and all of its trim and then plumb up the frame. There are a few easier options that might alleviate the problem. Step 1: For a door that won’t stay open, consider installing a door stop that locks the door in place. Screw the smaller piece of the stop to the door and the larger portion to the baseboard behind the door. Apply a little pressure when opening the door and the problem should be solved. Step 2: Use a screwdriver to tighten all of the door hinge screws. If the door was sagging because of a loose hinge, this simple step will fix the problem. Step 3: If the door still swings open or closed after tightening the screws, shut the door and carefully examine it. Chances are there will be a larger gap either at the top or bottom of the hinged side of the door. Shimming the frame side of a hinge to lessen the gap may solve the problem. Step 4: Place a door wedge, book or piece of rolled up cardboard beneath the open door to support the door while you address the hinges. Step 5: Remove the jamb-side hinge screws on the top or bottom hinge, depending on where the larger gap is. Step 6: Place a prefabricated door hinge shim, or a piece of chip board cut to match the hinge size, into the mortise of the door jamb. Reattach the hinge on top of the shim. Make sure to hand-tighten the screws completely. Step 7: An option for shimming the hinge is to remove the door-side hinge screws on the hinge with the smaller gap. Use a wood chisel and sand paper to slightly deepen the mortise under the

Be careful not to remove too much wood; once wood is removed, it can’t be replaced. Step 8: Test the door to see if it opens and closes properly. Make adjustments if necessary. If the door still swings open or shut, removing the door and trim to plumb the frame may be the only solution … but that’s a job for another week. — Linda Cottin can be reached at

Good dog, good job? More dogs sit, stay at work


ANGELES (AP) — Like any new addition to an office, Dolly had an adjustment period. The hardest part: learning not to bark at the mailman. Dolly is one of millions of dogs that accompany their owners to dog-friendly businesses every day. Even more will join her Friday for Take Your Dog to Work Day. “I consider it a benefit like health care. It’s a huge attraction,” said Dolly’s owner, Erin McCormack, who works at Authentic Entertainment in Los Angeles as a producer on the Discovery Channel’s “Auction Kings.” McCormack and her Maltese mix walk together before work and at lunch to get some exercise, and McCormack saves money on the dog walker or day care she would otherwise need. “It’s such a great way to create a productive atmosphere. It makes the environment more conducive to creativity,” she said, at a company that produces shows like the Food Network’s “The Best Thing I Ever Ate,” TLC’s “Toddlers & Tiaras” and Bravo’s “Flipping Out.” At the same time, McCormack added, “They are a calming force. When things get stressful, you can lean down and pet your dog or take a walk and pet a nearby dog. You get a more efficient workplace, one that’s not consumed with stress.” About 1.4 million owners take some 2.3 million dogs OS

to work every day, according to an American Pet Products Association survey last year. When the group last surveyed businesses, in 2006, one in five was dog-friendly. That number is probably holding steady if you include one-person offices, work-at-home pet owners and retail shops, said Len Kain, co-founder and editor of, which lists dog-friendly companies in every state. Some of the nation’s largest employers are dog-friendly — like Google Inc. and Keeping employees happy is one of the main reasons cited by employers. “Engineering and software companies are often the type of company that is pet-friendly,” Kain said. “These companies have trouble finding people with the skills they need and do not want to lose these employees.” Extrovertic, a health care communications agency with 40 employees and offices in New York City and Cambridge, Mass., tested the waters last year with Take Your Dog to Work Day. Taking place on Friday this year, it is sponsored by North Carolina-based Pet Sitters International to promote adoption. Allowing pets may be a way to help make do with fewer employees working longer hours. “By allowing dogs at work, an employee doesn’t have to leave to take care of the pet,” Kain said.
