Kansans have harnessed wind power since state’s earliest development McLouth man maintains several old-fashioned windmills By Richard Gwin firstname.lastname@example.org

As Kansas leaders talk about the state’s emerging wind industry, it can be easy to forget that the state has a rich history in windmills. But a visit to Russell Smelser’s home near McLouth brings that history sharply into focus. That’s because the remains of oldtime windmills — blades, old towers, pumps and gears — cover his property. Smelser has a passion for them and is one of the few repairmen in the region who can fix them. His property is also home to three water wells that at one time had water drawn by a windmill to power steam locomotives that ran on nearby railroad tracks. Following the railroad
companies were the settlers who built the windmills so they could irrigate crops. “About every farmer, when they could afford it, put in a windmill,” Smelser said. In the late 1800s, windmill manufacturers were common throughout Kansas. At one time there were at least two manufacturers in Topeka and another one south of Eudora. As a young boy, Smelser would travel past an old wooden windmill during family outings. His fascination grew from there. Years later, Smelser fixed up his first windmill, which ignited a passion for collecting and repairing them. Today, he salvages old windmills, which he uses for parts to keep other ones running. — Staff photographer Richard Gwin can be reached at 832-6351.

More class periods next year will mean more chances for high schoolers to explore potential careers. When it comes to electives — ranging from business to health care to manufacturing and many others in between — students at Free State and Lawrence high schools are lining up to enroll in classes often out of reach as recently as a semester ago, when student schedules were constricted by meeting core graduation requirements. Come this fall, students will find themselves with a seventh regular class period added to their schedules, made possible by shrinking each period by nine minutes a day, three days per week. Administrators who do the math see plenty of positives, even when considering that their schools will lose 27 minutes of instruction per week. “It’s a price worth paying, to give kids an additional class credit,” says Ed West, principal at Free State High School. The extra period is among the operational changes coming to high school campuses this fall to accompany physical adjustments such as upgrades to cafeterias, renovations to rooms, and installation of replacement and additional hall lockers. The changes are part of the district’s “Redesigning for Student Success” initiative, a sweeping program sending dozens of teachers into different schools as elementary school stops after fifth grade, junior highs become middle schools, and the two high schools welcome ninth-graders to campus. The seven-period day — up from the previous six — will give high schoolers more opportunities to try out classes that may interest them, said Frank Harwood, the district’s chief operations officer. During their four years, students will have seven more chances to take electives, whether it’s taking photos, learning Chinese, playing the cello, building motors or anything else. “One of the things that’s important about going to a large, comprehensive high school is all
When Dagoberto Heredia first came to Kansas University, he found himself the only Latino on the floor of his residence hall and the only Latino in many of his classes. “There’s a multicultural population at KU, but it’s not very big,” said Heredia, who recently graduated with a degree in psychology and Latin American studies. A summer program housed at KU is designed to help high school students break down some of those barriers to attending college — not just the cultural ones, but all the rest of them, too.
It’s called Harvest of Hope, and it’s designed for migrant workers in Kansas — meaning students whose families have moved in the previous three years and are working in one of several agricultural jobs. Stacy Mendez, the project’s coordinator, said that means the program has about 80 percent Latino students, but it attracts students from all kinds of backgrounds. One of about 50 students enrolled in the program this year hails from the Asian country of Myanmar, she said. The students take classes, visit schools, talk with other

Though teachers are being laid off at an increasing level across the state, schools that train teachers aren’t overreacting to the bad economic news. At Kansas University, the school does have some caps in enrollments, but not an overall cap, said Rick Ginsberg, dean of the KU School of Education. “We’ve always limited enrollment in some of our programs,” he said. Some of those are tied to the job market — for instance, the state doesn’t Please see HARVEST, page 2A need as many elementary
school teachers right now, he said. Other caps are tied to budgetary constraints and are designed to keep class sizes low, he said. The KU education school’s enrollment has fallen since fall 2008, when it was 2,036, to 1,911 in fall 2010. Ginsberg said in today’s job market, recently graduated teachers might do well to prepare themselves to have to be mobile and to be willing to work outside their preferred place to live.

who meet their requirements academically. “We don’t have caps on our programs,” said Ken Weaver, associate dean of the college. Still, he said, the shrinking market is a concern. He recalled shivering outside in the cold during the school’s most recent spring commencement. “I’m wondering, not only for our graduates, but for graduates throughout the state that are preparing to graduate, what will happen to them?” he said. — Higher education reporter Andy Hyland can be reached at 832-6388.

I looked at it midevening and told one of my co-workers, ‘We are going to have levees start popping.’ Within about an hour we were getting the calls on them.” — Jud Kneuvean, chief of emergency management for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ Kansas City District from Saturday morning to Sunday morning. The corps suspects the culprit is an influx of rainwater that combined with a surge from a notch cut in the breached Hamburg, Iowa, levee to allow trapped water to flow back into the river. “I looked at it mid-evening and told one of my co-workers, ‘We are going to have levees start popping.”’ Kneuvean said of Saturday night. “Within about an hour we were getting the calls on them.” He said Big Lake is seeking permission to cut a relief hole in an already-damaged county levee to allow water trapped behind the levee to flow back into the river. The levee protects about 13,000 acres of farmland as well as the state park. Presiding Holt County commissioner Mark Sitherwood said U.S. 159 was closed south of Big Lake because of water pouring over the road. Much of Big Lake’s west side was underwater.
Many have evacuated Most people left their homes well in advance of the flooding. Those who stayed were told Saturday night that water was flowing into the area. Big Lake residents Juli and Steve Crenshaw, who stayed behind and used kayaks to get around, spent Saturday night scrambling to fix leaks in levees. After helping to shore up one levee they headed to another one. “But when we got there with sandbags, the levee was gone,” said Juli Crenshaw, whose own basement was starting to take on water. “It was too late. So we left there and went to another levee and started working to save it.”

Providing extra time to explore so-called “career pathways” should help all students in the long run, she recently told members of the Lawrence school board. “It gets you an eye into what you may want to do in the future,” McCullough said. Scott Morgan, a board member, said that such career
The Big Lake area, where water has been high for the past couple weeks, has experienced major flooding in three of the last five years. Sitherwood said this year promises to be much worse following weeks of high flows and increasing releases from the main stem dams in Montana and the Dakotas. In Atchison County, there was a nearly steady flow of water over a half-mile stretch of a levee near U.S. 136 and overtopping at various points to the north of that area, said Mark Manchester, deputy director of emergency management for the county. He said the river level in the county had reached 44.6 feet, the highest on record and about 4 to 5 inches higher than 1993 flooding levels. The water was flooding several thousand acres of farmland, but so far no homes had been inundated since a breach this past Monday caused about a dozen homes to take on water, Manchester said. Because of the high waters, U.S. 136 was closing near the Missouri-Nebraska border.
Enormous strain Kneuvean, the corps official in Kansas City, said that whenever a levee is being overtopped to the extent occurring in Atchison County, the most that can be hoped is that it will stay intact for 12 hours. After that, “all bets are off,” he said. A complete breach of the levee could displace up to 200 more people. Meanwhile, in Nebraska, the flooding alert issued by the Nebraska Public Power District for the Cooper Nuclear Station near Brownville, Neb., didn’t stop the plant from operating at full capacity Sunday. The Fort Calhoun Station, another nuclear plant along the Missouri River in eastern Nebraska, issued a similar alert June 6. That plant near Blair, Neb., has been shut down since April and will not be reactivated until the flooding subsides. Jodi Fawl, spokeswoman for the Nebraska Emergency Management Agency, said water was flowing over a levee in the Brownville area and into farmland, but the levee was being built up to alleviate that.
pathways could help in other ways, too. Expanding electives can expose students to topics that might enhance their opportunities to enter high-skill, high-demand and high-wage jobs. And more interest, he indicated, should equate to improved attendance and academic performance. “Our overall graduation rate will go up, as we make school more relevant for kids,” he said. — Schools reporter Mark Fagan can be reached at 832-7188.

Libya: 9 civilians killed in airstrikes Libya’s government said NATO warplanes struck a residential neighborhood in the capital Sunday and killed nine civilians, including two children. Hours later, NATO confirmed one of its airstrikes went astray. The incident gave supporters of Moammar Gadhafi’s regime a new rallying point against the international intervention in Libya’s civil war. The foreign minister called for a “global jihad” on the West in response. Early Sunday morning, journalists based in the Libyan capital were rushed by government officials to the damaged building, which appeared to have been partly under construction. Reporters were later escorted back to the site, where children’s toys, teacups and dust-covered mattresses could be seen amid the rubble. In a statement issued late Sunday at Brussels headquarters, the trans-Atlantic alliance said airstrikes were launched against a military missile site in Tripoli, but “it appears that one weapon did not strike the intended target and that there may have been a weapons system failure which may have caused a number of civilian casualties.”
Concert venues fight to overcome economy ————
Sandstone struggled last year, now has to compete with new Livestrong Sporting Park By Melissa Treolo firstname.lastname@example.org
Last year was a “bloodbath” for music venues across the country. That’s how Chris Fritz describes the dismal concert
ticket sales seen in 2010. He says the national average of sales was a whopping 45 to 50 percent below what was seen in 2009. “So the whole industry got murdered last year,” said the president of New West Presentations, a Prairie Village-based manage-
ment company and the leaseholder of Capitol Federal Park at Sandstone. The land the venue sits on is owned by the Unified Government of Wyandotte County and Kansas City, Kan. Sandstone felt the sting, Fritz said, but not as badly as some
other venues, bringing in about 25 percent less ticket sales than were hoped for. Still, even though the summer concert season won’t kick off for another few weeks, Fritz says conditions Please see VENUES, page 5A

Al-Qaida using kidnapping to get cash Pressured by increased scrutiny of terrorist money sources and strikes aimed at its financiers, al-Qaida’s core organization in Pakistan has turned to kidnapping for ransom to offset dwindling cash reserves, according to U.S. officials, some of whom cited information in files retrieved from Osama bin Laden’s compound. Bin Laden’s interest in kidnapping as a cash-raiser bolsters accounts that the financial squeeze has staggered al-Qaida, forcing it to search for alternative funding sources. Officials would not detail al-Qaida’s role in specific crimes, but the group’s affiliates have targeted diplomats, tourists and merchants. His awareness of al-Qaida’s growing use of kidnapping is evidence that even in isolation behind high walls in Abbottabad, Pakistan, bin Laden kept tabs on how his network moved its money. 2 | WASHINGTON, D.C.

Gates: More pressure key to Taliban talks As President Barack Obama nears a decision on an Afghanistan troop withdrawal, his retiring defense secretary says he doesn’t believe the Taliban will engage in serious talks about ending their fight until they are under extreme military pressure. Pentagon chief Robert Gates acknowledges that “there’s been outreach” to the Taliban by the U.S. and others, but he describes the contacts as “very preliminary at this point.” Afghan President Hamid Karzai said Saturday that the U.S. and Afghan government have held talks with Taliban emissaries in an effort to end the nearly 10year war. The Taliban, which ruled Afghanistan and sheltered al-Qaida before being driven from power in the U.S.-led invasion in late 2001, say publicly that there will be no negotiations until foreign troops leave the country. 3 | MILWAUKEE
More pastors defying gay marriage ban A growing number of pastors in the United Methodist Church say they’re no longer willing to obey a church rule that prohibits them from officiating at same-sex marriages, despite the potential threat of being disciplined or dismissed from the church. In some parts of the U.S., Methodist pastors have been marrying same-sex couples or conducting blessing ceremonies for same-sex unions for years with little fanfare and no backlash from the denomination. Calls to overturn the rule have become increasingly vocal in recent weeks, ratcheting up the pressure for the Methodist church to join other mainline Protestant denominations that have become more accepting of openly gay leaders. While trials of pastors who conduct same-gender ceremonies have only occurred once every several years, the threat is indeed real. The Rev. Amy DeLong of Osceola in western Wisconsin faces a three-day trial starting Tuesday in Kaukauna on two charges: violating a church prohibition on the ordination of “self-avowed practicing homosexuals” and marrying a lesbian couple.
RANDY FITZGERALD, LAWRENCE, who works for Low Maintenance Landscape, waters a yard during the morning hours. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, more than 50 percent of the water used for landscaping goes to waste.
By Sara Shepherd
By Christine Metz email@example.com
Across Lawrence, lawn sprinklers have been turned to full blast as the temperatures rise. But many of us may be watering too much. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, more than 50 percent of the water used for landscaping goes to waste. That’s an unnecessary expense that can add up when you consider that the average single-family home uses at least 30 percent of its water for irrigation. Here are some water conservation tips to help conserve both water and dollars:
1. Water early in the day Water in the morning hours before temperatures start to skyrocket. According to the EPA, in afternoons most of the water evaporates, and in the evening, watering can encourage the growth of mold or plant disease. 2. Keep the sprinklers efficient Make sure that sprinklers are reaching the intended areas and not spraying driveways
and sidewalks. Also, lawns should be watered separately from plants. Jennifer Smith, horticulture agent for Kansas State University Research and Extension, Douglas County, recommends keeping sprinklers on timers. However, she also suggests using a rain sensor, which costs less than $100. Rain sensors can be programmed to shut off the sprinkler system when it rains. The period of time the sprinkler is off is determined by how much rain falls.
3. Measure how much water is being used Grass should receive about an inch of water per week, Smith said. The best way to measure water is to put a can in the yard to collect it and then measure it with a ruler. To avoid surface water runoff, Smith recommends watering two to three times a week. 4. Keep the grass high One of the most important things you can do to conserve water is raising the mowing height, Smith said. For most grasses, the height should be at a minimum of three inches. That might put the mower at its
highest setting. Keeping the grass high will reduce stress on the plants and make it grow slower and take less fertilizer and water. “It will be a little happier and healthier overall,” Smith said.
5. Leave the grass clippings behind Leaving grass clippings on the lawn after mowing requires less water (it’s a concept known as greencycle). According to the EPA, the clippings quickly decompose and release valuable nutrients back into the soil, which helps feed the lawn and reduces the need for fertilizer by 25 to 50 percent. 6. Use recycled water For those who are really serious about water conservation, install a rain barrel. These large barrels collect rainwater off roofs and gutters that then can be used for watering plants and lawns. Both the city of Lawrence and Douglas County extension office offer classes on how to build them.

Data to be evaluated in effort to improve state court system WICHITA (AP) — Judges and court workers have completed the datacollection part of a study aimed at making Kansas’ court system more efficient. The Wichita Eagle reported that the data will be analyzed by the National Center for State Courts. That national nonprofit group works to improve the justice system and lobbies on behalf of courts at the federal level. The results of the $200,000 consultant study of how judges and other court workers spend their time will go to a panel that will recommend changes if they are needed. Kansas Supreme Court Chief Jus-

adding that 75 to 80 positions are being intentionally held vacant. “Now those of you who have an economic background or a business background will say, ‘Well, so what? That’s what you do when economic times are bad,”’ Nuss said. “The problem with that analogy is that our orders are not down, because we still, unfortunately, have people in Kansas who are committing sex crimes against children. We still have citizens getting injured or killed. “We still have business people whose contracts are getting breached — and they are all in need of justice.”
Lucy Weber lived to see only one birthday. But earlier this month, on the day she would have turned 2, the spirit of the little girl whose battle with brain cancer captivated Shawnee showed up on a plane to Dallas, in the McDonald’s drive-thru lane and in a cold bottle of water handed to a heatweary mail carrier. After Lucy died in November, her relatives and friends mulled ways to ensure that the toddler — and the kindness she inspired in others — wouldn’t be forgotten. On June 8, they kicked off Lucy’s Legacy. “I just didn’t want to see the positivity that had I just didn’t opened up in want to see our lives end with her the positivity ending,” said that had Lucy’s moth- opened up in er, Bev our lives end Weber. with her “Truthfully, that would ending.” have been just as devastating as the — Bev Weber, Lucy’s actuality of mother her passing away.” Lucy’s Legacy aims to promote random acts of kindness — something loved ones, strangers and even celebrities showered on the Weber family after Lucy’s diagnosis, and later her death. When people perform an act of kindness, they’re supposed to hand the recipient a Lucy’s Legacy card. The cards, edged in purple and decorated with a tiny goose, say, “This random act of kindness was done in honor of Lucy ‘Goose’ Weber… Pass along the kindness — and this card!” The card also includes a link to Facebook.com/TeamLucyGoose, where visitors can read Lucy’s story, share random acts of kindness and print out additional cards.

Road work this week Lawrence ● The P ublic Works Department will begin restriping some downtown parking lots this week. Lots will be closed no more than one day. The lots will close in the evening and reopen by 6 p.m. on the day of the scheduled closure. Message boards should be posted for affected lots. ● City contractors Monday will begin a complete reconstruction of the westbound lanes of Bob Billings Parkway from Kasold to Crestline Drive. Traffic will be reduced to one lane in each direction with delays expected. The project is expected to be completed by Aug. 12. ● City crews continue making repairs to concrete curbs and street pavement throughout downtown. The project will extend from Sixth to North Park streets and from Vermont to New Hampshire streets. Traffic will generally be maintained in both directions, but there will be parking limitations and single-lane effects. The work is expected to be completed by mid-August. ● Crews are working on a project to add a center turn lane on Sixth Street between Folks Road and Monterey Way. The second phase began two weeks ago with plans to widen the eastbound lanes on Sixth Street. The project is expected to last three to five weeks in total. ● Kasold Drive between Clinton Parkway and 31st Street has both directions of traffic traveling along the southbound lanes of Kasold. Each direction is narrowed to one lane as crews rebuild the roadway. Access from side streets is right turn only. The project is expected to last for several months. ● A portion of the Kansas River levee trail will be closed for the construction of Bowersock Mills & Power Co.’s new plant on the north bank of the Kansas River. A detour on the trail will take users from the trail to city streets crossing at the controlled intersection of Second and Locust streets. Signs will be posted marking the detour route to direct users throughout the detour. The city urges drivers and trail users to use caution when traveling through the intersection. The detour will run for the duration of the project, which is projected to last 20 months. ● The city will begin its second phase of its overlay and crack sealing projects Monday. Temporary singlelane closures should be expected in these areas, but traffic will most likely be able to flow through the area. For a map of the overlay projects go to lawrenceks.org/public_wor ks/streetmaintenance and click on “2011 Street Maintenance Plan.” ● City maintenance crews are working on a microsurfacing program. Roads throughout the city will be repaved and resurfaced. Lane reductions and possible street closures may occur during the process. To find out what streets the city has targeted, visit the city’s website, www.ci.lawrence.ks.us. The project is scheduled for completion in late July. Douglas County ● Route 442 will be closed starting Monday for a pavement rehabilitation project. No traffic will be allowed on the road from the Lawrence city limits to the Wakarusa River Bridge in Eudora. Traffic will be rerouted to K-10 and North 1500 Road. The project should be finished by the end of July. ● Douglas County Road 9 is closed between U.S. Highway 24-40 and Interstate 70. The road will be closed so crews can work on bridge construction. It will remain closed until late spring. ● All lanes of Douglas County Road 458/N. 1000 Road will be closed to traffic between U.S. Highway 59 and E. 1400 Road, which is about one mile east of U.S. 59. The road is being closed as part of the construction of the new interchange for U.S. 59 and so that crews can repair the bridge located
about one-third mile east of U.S. 59. Local access for residents living in the area will remain available during the roadway closure. For other traffic, a marked detour will be provided along Douglas County Road 1055/East 1500 Road and 31st Street. The work will last until mid- to late July.
U.S. Highway 24 ● Intermittent lane closures near U.S. Highway 24 and Airport Road are expected while crews work toward the installation of a sanitary sewer collection holding system. The project is scheduled to be completed by August. U.S. Highway 40 ● Construction began Thursday to resurface a 17mile stretch road just west of the K-4 interchange in Shawnee County to the K-10 interchange in Douglas County. The goal of the project is to improve and preserve the driving condition of the roadway in that area. Delays of 15 minutes are expected during construction, which will run Monday through Saturday during daylight hours. Drivers are encouraged to find alternate routes through the area if possible. The project should be completed by late June. U.S. Highway 59 ● North 200 Road is closed at U.S. Highway 59 for frontage road construction work. The road will be tied to the new frontage road that runs parallel to the new U.S. Highway 59. Work is scheduled to be completed in late 2012. U.S. Highway 56 ● A bridge replacement project is under way just west of the U.S. Highway 75 junction in Osage County. About a 0.5 mile west of the junction, both eastbound and westbound lanes of U.S. Highway 56 will be closed to all but local traffic. A marked detour will take drivers through Burlingame to Osage City and then back to U.S. Highway 7. The project is expected to be finished in mid-June. Interstate 70 ● Kansas Turnpike Authority is reconstructing a three-mile stretch of highway just east of Lawrence. Traffic will be narrowed to one lane in each direction from mile marker 208 to mile marker 211. Access to the Lawrence Service Area will remain open. Delays are expected during rush hour. The project will be finished by November. ● A bridge replacement project is under way for the 142nd Street bridge spanning the Kansas Turnpike in Leavenworth and Wyandotte counties. The northbound and southbound lanes on 142nd Street will be closed between Kansas Avenue and Riverview Avenue. The stretch of road will remain closed for the duration of the project. As part of the project, daily lane closures could occur on the eastbound and westbound lanes of I-70 and the right shoulder of the road. The project should be complete in late fall. Interstate 435 ● A bridge-painting project at the Johnson Drive interchange is under way. The work will require varying lane closures that will reduce northbound and southbound traffic along I435 down to one lane at a time. The lane reductions will occur from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. Monday through Friday. The ramps will remain open. The project should be completed by mid-July. ● A pavement-repair project will start Monday from 87th Street to Midland Drive and on the Holiday Drive interchange ramps in Johnson County. The work requires various lane closures that reduce traffic in both directions to one lane at times. The reductions occur from 7 p.m. through noon Monday through Friday and from 7 p.m. until 1 p.m. on the weekend. The project should be completed by late October.

H U T C H I N S O N — The old Valentine diner has seen better days. It sits hidden beside a tree row at Loda Center — a spot in the road just south of Arlington in Reno County. The windows are boarded and a rope across the drive wards off trespassers. Back in the 1940s, its first owners served up hamburgers and fries from its insides in Kingman.

Lucy started showing signs of illness in May of last year. On her first birthday, she underwent surgery to remove a rare and malignant tumor from her brain. When the tumor returned, doctors ordered chemotherapy. When they heard Lucy’s diagnosis, the Webers’ friends and neighbors began devising ways to help, from mowing their lawn and cleaning their house to planning fundraisers, which included a Harley-Davidson raffle and a four-course dinner at Boulevard Brewery. Prayer chains spread her story even further. Overwhelmed with a feeling of responsibility for informing the burgeoning group of followers interested in Lucy’s progress, Bev Weber and Lucy’s father, Brian Weber, emailed Kansas State University athletic director John Currie. Brian Weber, a huge K-State sports fan, figured if anyone knew what to do in the face of adversity, it would be Currie and his coaches, his wife said. Currie sent books and also sent word to an acquaintance who was a large supporter of the V Foundation for Cancer Research, Bev Weber said. The foundation was founded by ESPN and former North Carolina State basketball coach Jim Valvano, who later lost his battle with cancer. In December, about a month after Lucy died, sportscaster Dick Vitale featured her story in a Jimmy V Men’s Basketball Classic halftime show in New York’s Madison Square Garden. Vitale invited the Webers to his annual fundraising gala for the V Foundation, where he announced a $500,000 pediatric cancer research

Chalfie is a friend of Lucy’s mother and helped create Lucy’s Legacy. grant named for Lucy and another child who recently died of cancer. A $250,000 grant was announced for a third child. In a prepared statement released before the gala, Vitale said research was critical to help save kids battling cancer. “It is an honor that this year’s gala will celebrate the memory of three beautiful children,” he said. “I hope that the research funded in their names will someday help other kids faced with this dreaded disease, and keep Lucy, Johnny and Adrian’s stars shining brightly in future years.” Lucy’s CaringBridge website, caringbridge.org/visit/ lucyweber, has now gotten more than 122,000 visits, said Jill Chalf ie, a friend of Weber’s who helped create Lucy’s Legacy. “She just seemed to bring people together, and brought out the best in people,” Chalfie said. Chalfie said she hoped the effort is a fitting tribute. Her hope is that cards will circulate year-round, but with an extra push on Lucy’s birthday.” “This was definitely just a kickoff, and my hope is that people just keep a sheet of these in their purse or wallet all the time,” Chalfie said. “I’d love to get them across the world someday.”

Other bands and musicians taking the stage this summer will include 311 and Sublime with Rome (July 8); Rob Zombie (July 16); Kings of Leon and Band of Horses (Aug. 29); and Blink 182 and My Chemical Romance (Sept. 9). Rolling Stones, AC/DC, Bob Seger and Journey tribute bands will also come together for the Rock N’ Roll Dream Concert on July 9. Tickets are now on sale for all of these shows, and Fritz said ticket sales for the Warped Tour are ahead of what they were last year at this time. He also noted that, as of last Monday, tickets sold for Rob Zombie totaled about 7,000 and those for 311 and Sublime were nearing the 10,000 mark. An increase in ticket sales doesn’t mean Sandstone has no challenges to overcome, however, Fritz said. The venue is already feeling the competition from nearby Livestrong Sporting Park, which just opened recently in the Village West area of
— Chris Fritz, president of New West Presentations and the leaseholder of Capitol Federal Park at Sandstone Kansas City, Kan. The new venue will be the site of this year’s Buzz Beach Ball, a music festival sponsored by radio station 96.5 The Buzz. Before this year, Sandstone had been a frequent home of the annual festival. “It’s a brand new place. It’s a beautiful place to do (Beach Ball),” Fritz said of why Beach Ball organizers decided to move the festival to Livestrong. “They saw an opportunity, so they’re taking it.” Another challenge lies in the venue’s ongoing green efforts. After New West Presentations took over the lease in 2008 from Sandstone’s former leaseholder, Live Nation, big plans were made to make the venue as green as possible. Some of those plans have been implemented in the form of cups made from biodegradable corn, recycled toilet paper, energy conservation, and environmentally friendly lighting and paint. But Fritz said some of the bigger, higher-dollar plans, like bringing in wind turbines and building a water-reclaiming system, had been stymied indefinitely by the economic recession. Those plans would cost millions of dollars, Fritz said. “Unfortunately, (those plans are) on hold, and we
can’t even extend any energy because it would just be a waste of time right now,” he said. “Because we just can’t find the money or the partners to do it, because the money doesn’t exist.” Fritz said right now the focus is just on bringing in shows people want to see, while still keeping ticket and concession prices low enough that Sandstone will be able to hold its own among other music venues in the area. And with the majority of concerts being under $40 this summer, Fritz said he is confident these goals will be met — especially given the loyal following Sandstone has acquired over the years. “You’ve got limited inventory and you’ve got a lot of venues, but I think we have a unique situation,” Fritz said. “People love Sandstone. They enjoy going to concerts there. We’re making it very affordable for them; making it very pleasant. It’s easy to park, we try to keep service charges down, we try to keep our concession prices in line and we’re making a modest profit and just trying to, you know, reinvest in the place every year. … It’s very cool. We enjoy doing it.” To see a full concert calendar and ticket information, go to sandstoneamp.com. — Bonner Springs Chieftain reporter Melissa Treolo can be reached at 913-422-2169.
ers and bicyclists in their neighborhood. Weber had just settled into a comfortable aisle seat on a plane bound for Dallas last week when she noticed a woman struggling to shove her bag into an overhead compartment, an impatient line forming behind her. Once the bag was secure, Weber — guessing the woman could use a break — moved to the middle seat, offered her the aisle and passed her a card. Weber was equipped with plenty more cards she would hand out at the conference she was attending. Margie Long, of Kansas City, Mo., picked up lunch for a co-worker that day. Long never met Lucy and hadn’t heard her story until reading her obituary. Lucy is now the first of 15 stories in a book Long is writing about people who were “lost too soon,” Long said. She hopes to publish the book, tentatively titled “Unfinished Business,” next year. “I was just very moved by her story,” Long said. “I just thought, ‘Oh my gosh, this one little person only 17 months old, and the world is going to change because of her.’”
Chalfie, of Shawnee, and her children were the ones who waited for the mailman to pull in, then ran out with a bottle of water and a Lucy’s Legacy card for him. They paid for the woman behind them in the drive-thru and handed the cashier a card to give the customer. They also set up a free lemonade stand and handed out cards to walk-

Wildfires force more evacuations
21-year-old Californian wins Miss USA crown LAS VEGAS — A 21-year-old auburn-haired California girl won the Miss USA crown on Sunday night and will represent the nation in this year’s Miss Universe pageant in September in Brazil. Alyssa Campanella of Los Angeles topped a field of 51 beauty queens to take the title at the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino on the Las Vegas Strip. She strutted across the stage in a blue bikini with white polka dots and a dark turquoise evening gown with beading on its top. She also answered a question about legalizing marijuana by saying she didn’t think it should be fully legalized as a solution to help ailing economies. Miss Tennessee Ashley Durham was the first runnerup, while contestants from Alabama and Texas placed third and fourth.

BOYNUYOGUN REFUGEE CAMP, TURKEY — Syrian troops combing through restive villages near the Turkish border set fire to homes and a bakery Sunday, cutting off a lifeline to thousands of uprooted people stranded in miserable open-air encampments. Activists said the military carried out mass arrests and threw up checkpoints in the village of Bdama and surrounding areas to block residents from fleeing across the frontier, as thousands of others have done. Turkey, whose leaders have denounced the Damascus regime’s deadly crackdown on dissent, began distributing food to those encamped on the Syrian side of the border, in the first such aid mission since the campaign against anti-government protesters turned into a refugee crisis two weeks ago. People from the Syrian side were collecting food at the border to take to the stranded families, the local Turkish governor’s office said. With the 3-month-old prodemocracy uprising raging on, the Syrian government appeared desperate to put an end to the embarrassing stream of refugees fleeing their homeland. Activists said Syrian authorities at the border were making it more difficult for people to reach Turkey.

GREEK FINANCE MINISTER EVANGELOS VENIZELOS, LEFT, speaks with Luxembourg’s Finance Minister Jean-Claude Juncker, center, and German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble during a round table meeting of eurozone finance ministers in Luxembourg on Sunday. On only his third day in office, Venizelos faced his first big test: trying to convince his eurozone counterparts to release a loan installment his country needs to avoid defaulting on its massive debts next month, and to commit to billions in new loans to keep Greece afloat in the coming years.
Eurozone puts off Greek loan decision
LUXEMBOURG (AP) — Hours of talks between eurozone f inance ministers on the imploding finances of Greece broke up early this morning without the ministers signing off on a vital installment of rescue loans needed to avoid bankruptcy next month. Greece will get the next 12 billion euros of its existing 110 billion euros bailout package in early July, but only if it manages to pass 28 billion euros in new spending cuts and economic reforms by the end of the month, said JeanClaude Juncker, the prime minister of Luxembourg who also chairs the regular meetings of the 17 eurozone finance ministers.

Syrian army cuts off lifeline to thousands
States look to Internet taxes to resolve budget woes
BRIEFLY PHOENIX — Authorities ordered more evacuations Sunday as crews battling a pair of wildfires in Arizona and on the New Mexico border faced extremely high winds that drove flames across containment lines and toward populated areas. The new evacuations were near the southern Arizona city of Sierra Vista, where the Monument fire had already forced nearly 7,000 people to flee 2,600 homes. At least 44 homes have been lost. Winds reaching 50 mph pushed flames down a mountain and into a heavily populated area Sunday. Fire crews were forced to abandon their lines and try to set up in new spots as the fire advanced, fire spokesman Bill Paxton said. Residents of several areas that had been under a preevacuation notices were ordered to flee.

zone countries and the International Monetary Fund will have to provide. “No pressure may be exerted on the private sector,” Juncker stressed, since any sign of coercion could force rating agencies to consider the bond-rollover as a partial default. Such a negative rating could take down Greek banks and further shake other struggling euro countries like Ireland and Portugal, economists have warned. Juncker said he planned to convene a special finance ministers meeting in the first days of July, where the remaining questions would be finalized. He said that because of the voluntary nature of the roll-over, it was too early to put a number on the contribution of the private sector. The meeting of the 17 eurozone nations came after a tumultuous week that saw rioting on the streets of Athens, a Greek Cabinet reshuffle and days of market turmoil that sent borrowing costs spiking. A default by Greece could cause ripples around the world, disrupting the global economy similarly to the collapse of investment bank Lehman Brothers in 2008. Just before the meeting broke up, the finance chiefs of the United States, Canada, Japan and the U.K. were updated on the discussions taking place in Luxembourg in a conference call limited to the Group of Seven rich nations, underlining the heightened level of concern over the small euro nation.
public libraries and parks, and reducing health care services, but there is one place they could get $23 billion a year if they could only agree how to do it: Internet retailers such as Amazon.com. That’s enough to pay for the salaries of more than 46,000 teachers, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. In California, the amount of uncollected taxes from Amazon sales alone is roughly the same amount cut from child welfare services in the current state budget. But collecting those taxes from major online retailers is difficult. Internet retailers are required to collect sales tax only when they sell to customers living in a state where they have a physical presence, such as a store or office. When consumers order from out-of-state retailers, they are required under state law to pay the tax. But it’s difficult to enforce and rarely happens. That means under the current system the seller is absolved of responsibility, buyers save 3 percent to 9 percent because they rarely volunteer to pay the sales tax, and the state loses revenue.
Sagging sales tax revenues With sales tax revenue slumping more than 30 percent in most states between 2007 and 2010, lawmakers across the country are grasping for ways to collect those unpaid taxes. Retailers and lawmakers in several states have proposed ways to solve the problem, some with more support than others. “The problem is that some out-of-state e-retailers openly flaunt the law, arguing that it doesn’t apply to them,” said Texas state Democratic Rep. Elliot Naishtat, who has offered a bill to require more Internet sellers to collect Texas sales tax. “It’s about potentially generating hundreds of millions of dollars for our state.” Texas cut $24 billion in state services to cover its revenue shortfall. That included decisions not to fund the expected growth in the number of public school students and the expected growth in the caseload for Medicaid, the health care program for the poor and disabled. Internet retailers cite a 1992 U.S. Supreme Court decision involving catalog sales, Quill Corp. v. North Dakota, which ruled that states could require only companies that had a physical presence within the state to act as tax collector.
— Texas state Democratic Rep. Elliot Naishtat, who has offered a bill to require more Internet sellers to collect Texas sales tax To get around the ruling, some states are expanding what it means to be physically present. For example, an online retailer hiring a marketing firm or owning a subsidiary inside the state would qualify under definitions adopted in some states. In February, the Texas comptroller demanded that Amazon.com pay $269 million in back sales taxes because a subsidiary operated a warehouse near Dallas. Amazon is appealing the order. Last year, New York enacted a law that said Internet retailers’ practice of paying commissions to marketing agents based within the state constituted a presence. Arkansas, Colorado, Illinois, Rhode Island and North Carolina quickly followed with similar laws. Bills are pending in Arizona, California, Florida, Hawaii, Massachusetts, Minnesota and Pennsylvania. Texas lawmakers passed such a measure, but Gov. Rick Perry vetoed it. Now legislators are trying to resurrect the bill by attaching it to a larger budget measure. The matter is now before a conference committee. California estimates it loses at least $200 million a year in uncollected tax from online sales, $83 million from Amazon.com alone. A bill that has passed the state Legislature would force Seattlebased Amazon and others to collect that tax from California residents.
Internet retailers’ argument Amazon, Overstock.com and other big Internet retailers cite the Quill decision as their primary defense against collecting sales taxes, but they also argue that collecting tax in the District of Columbia and the 45 states where a sales tax exists would be extremely complex and expensive. “There are over 8,000 taxing jurisdictions in the United States,” said Jonathan Johnson, president of Overstock.com, which has offices only in Utah. “We think it’s wrong that states are trying to cause out-of-state retailers to be their tax collectors.” After all, Johnson said, these retailers do not use any state services where they don’t have offices. To avoid having to collect sales tax, Amazon threatened to close its warehouse in
Texas, cut off marketing affiliates in Illinois and North Carolina and sued New York claiming the law there is unconstitutional. Earlier this month, Amazon severed ties with website affiliates in Connecticut after the governor signed into law a state tax on online purchases that is expected to raise $9.4 million. The movement by states to force online retailers to collect sales taxes is more than just an attempt by government to get more money. It also highlights a rift in the business community.
Unhappy retailers Traditional retailers are complaining loudly to their elected officials, saying the current structure creates an unfair playing field. Wal-Mart, Target, Best Buy, J.C. Penney, Sears and other traditional retailers have formed The Alliance for Main Street Fairness to push for more stringent tax laws on Internet retailers. Brickand-mortar stores saw sales plunge 9.1 percent between 2007-2009, while online merchants saw sales rise 4.8 percent, according to the latest data available from the U.S. Census Bureau. Wal-Mart’s comparable store sales were down nearly 1 percent in 2010. The alliance is pushing to expand the definition of physical presence, state-by-state, to force big online retailers to collect state sales tax. When Texas lawmakers took up such a bill, most of the testimony came from owners of small businesses. Gregg Burger, the general manager of Austin’s Precision Camera, complained that customers come into his store to inspect the products, but then go online to buy them to avoid the sales tax. “We get people all the time who come in, talk to a salesman for 15 minutes to half an hour ... and then go, and we know they are going to buy it online because they can save money. In theory, they are stealing our time,” Burger said. “We’re losing at least 15 percent to online, out-ofstate, so we’re losing anywhere between $3 million and $5 million a year in business.” While state laws would help, Burger said he would like to see a national solution. “We should be picking on everyone who ships into every state,” he said.
Scandals highlight dearth of women in politics
By Beth Fouhy Associated Press Writer
NEW YORK — The sexting scandal that forced New York Rep. Anthony Weiner from Congress last week capped a remarkable season of dishonor for male politicians — from former Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards’ indictment on federal campaign f inance charges related to hiding a mistress to former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger’s admission he’d fathered a child with the family maid. For advocates of women in politics, such sexual shenanigans raise two questions: Why don’t women lawmakers fall prey to such temptation? And if more women were elected to office, would political sex scandals disappear? It’s the latest source of frustration for many activists concerned about the lack of progress for women in the political sphere, even as they’ve begun to outpace men in fields like academia, medicine and law. Democratic pollster Celinda Lake said women lawmakers have demonstrated an ability to focus on their responsibilities in office and not succumb to distractions — sexual and otherwise —
that sometimes ensnare their male colleagues. “We know that women have fewer sex scandals. And Gillibrand voters, particularly women voters, perceive them as being less prone to those kinds of scandals and more likely to be problem solvers with the right priorities,” Lake said. But even as voters warm to women’s style of leadership, the number of women running for and winning public office has slowed after four decades of gradual gains. The number of women in Congress has plateaued since 2007, with just 17 women in the 100-member Senate and 72 in the 435-member House currently. In state legislatures nationwide, 1,738 lawmakers are women, compared to 1,809 last year, and the percentage of women holding statewide office has fallen from 27.6 percent in 2001 to 21.9% today. Just 6 states have women governors. So while 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin may make headlines by testing the presidential waters — another
woman, Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachman, has already joined the 2012 GOP primary f ield — fewer women are running for lower-tier offices. Recruiting women to run for office has become a top priority for New York Democrat Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, who hosted a panel discussion earlier this month titled “Getting Women Off the Sidelines” to encourage more women to participate in politics. The event for several hundred women doubled as a fundraiser for Gillibrand’s political committee. Gillibrand said she was alarmed by the lack of progress for women in politics and has drawn attention — and complaint from some activists — by declaring “the women’s movement has stalled.” Women need to be in positions of power to bring about real change, she said. “Politics is seen as a very aggressive industry dominated by mudslinging and competitive behavior, and women self-select themselves out because of that,” Gillibrand said. “But if women run, they can win. They’ll change the rhetoric and bring a different working style to the table.” Some advocates bluntly cite such sexual transgres-
sions as evidence that more women need to run for office. One of those is former Michigan Democratic Gov. Jennifer Granholm, who raised eyebrows last month commenting on Schwarzenegger’s indiscretions. “Another guy guv admits 2 cheating on his wife. Maybe we need more women governors,” she wrote on her Twitter feed. In an interview, Granholm said the propensity of some male officeholders for bad behavior was only a small part of her quest to get more women to run. She said women succeed in office in part because they bring many “traditionally female” qualities to the job like a willingness to build consensus and seek solutions rather than fights. But, she said, the lack of temptation helps, too. “Men in power get a lot more attention from the opposite sex than women do. The temptation of that, the flattery, the ego is more pervasive as a result,” Granholm told the AP. “Women in office typically don’t have men coming onto us. We’re so busy trying to get the family together, multitasking and getting the job done.”

Budget equation Kansas legislators and university officials need to work together to increase state funding and minimize tuition increases.
embers of the Kansas Board of Regents, as well as state university officials, make a valid point when they say the tuition increases approved last week, are at least in part, a result of reduced state funding for higher education. As Regent Dan Lykins noted, “Everything is going up except state funding. The question is who is going to pay for it.” There is no doubt that state universities have been hurt by state funding cuts. The budget recently signed by Gov. Sam Brownback allocates about $744 million for higher education, which is down from $753 million for the current year and about $100 million below what was allocated three years ago. It would be difficult for state universities to absorb that kind of loss. Public K-12 schools across the state have little choice but to cut their budgets to conform to state funding levels, but universities have the ability to turn to tuition to help make up part of the loss. However, it seems incumbent on the universities to keep those increases to a minimum during such difficult economic times. In justifying tuition increases, Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little continues to refer to the need to provide students with the kind of educational opportunity they want. In such a difficult economy, most people simply don’t get everything they want. It’s a time to hunker down and try to hang on to what you have, but probably not make significant expansions or improvements. Gray-Little also points out that about $400,000 of the increased revenue for tuition will be added to the $10.3 million in need-based grants for students. That’s a good deal for the students who get the grants, but perhaps not for the students whose tuition money is being given to other students while they struggle to pay their own tuition without the benefit of such grants. Higher education officials have a legitimate gripe with the Kansas Legislature, and the Board of Regents is smart to look at ways to show state legislators the direct connection between state funding cuts and higher tuition rates. It’s worth considering, however, that legislators might look favorably on university efforts to hold increases in tuition and fees to a minimum during difficult financial times. Legislators have the power to provide increased funding for higher education, but they may be more likely to do that if they think state universities are doing the best they can to keep higher education affordable for the majority of Kansas students.
Romney faces pros, cons of front-runner So now there is a front-runner. By virtue of mathematics (the money he has raised) and chemistry (the way his rivals treat him), former Gov. Mitt Romney of Massachusetts is the leading candidate for the Republican presidential nomination. There’s danger in that position. The GOP field didn’t gang up on Romney in their New Hampshire debate last week, but that’s only because many of the candidates are just getting their campaign legs and are breathing the sweet air of being in presidential politics for the first time. Once they feel their political survival is at stake, their restraint will disappear, and one after another they will send arrows Romney’s way. Those arrows will provide opportunities for fellow contenders — and will challenge
David Shribman the perils in leading the “pack,Despite though, it’s a lot better to be the front-runner than one of the other contenders. More often than not, front-runners prevail and win their party’s nomination … ”
Romney’s mettle, providing evidence that he is strong enough to engage President Barack Obama in the general election or raising questions about his suitability as the party nominee. Sometimes front-runners stumble. Democrat Gary Hart did in 1988, for example, but Hart’s fall was more a matter of personal conduct than political profile.
Leading is better Despite the perils in leading the pack, though, it’s a lot better to be the front-runner than one of the other contenders. More often than not, front-runners prevail and win their party’s nomination: Walter Mondale in 1984, George H.W. Bush in 1988, Bob Dole in 1996, George W. Bush and Al Gore in 2000 are among many examples. This pattern is particularly strong among Republicans, who, at least in presidential politics, are temperamentally more inclined to respect customary lines of authority and the prerogatives of party elders. Three of their last four elected presidents were respected party figures who had run for the White House before, and the fourth (George W. Bush) was the son of a president, the grandson of a senator, the brother of a governor and himself the governor of the largest state headed by a Republican. Indeed, every Republican nominee for the past four decades, with the exception of Bush and Gerald R. Ford, an appointed but incumbent president, had run for president before.
This factor, along with Romney’s bulging campaign treasury and the deference the other candidates displayed last week, underlines Romney’s position — a position so commanding that he actually outpolled Obama in the latest Washington Post-ABC News Poll. Indeed, Romney has more than four times as much support in New Hampshire as his nearest rival, former New York Mayor Rudolph Giuliani, who isn’t even in the race (yet).
New Hampshire is key New Hampshire is vital for Romney, who owns a vacation home in the state and whose primary residence is in a neighboring state. His defeat there four years ago at the hands of Sen. John McCain represented a substantial repudiation, as Massachusetts politicians from John F. Kennedy’s time on have prevailed in New Hampshire — including Ambassador Henry Cabot Lodge (1964), who didn’t even campaign and managed to beat Sen. Barry Goldwater and Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller in a remarkable write-in effort, and former Sen. Paul E. Tsongas (1992). The only exception, besides Romney, was Edward M. Kennedy, who was defeated by an incumbent president, Jimmy Carter, in 1980. This time Romney simply cannot afford to lose the state, especially since he has all but abandoned efforts in Iowa, whose caucuses will precede New Hampshire’s primary by eight days. He can explain away a loss in Iowa: He won’t have competed, and the contest there is shaping up as a social-conservatism derby that is not to his tastes nor to his strengths. But losing New Hampshire, where he is well-known and where conditions favor him, would be fatal to his presidential hopes — especially since South Carolina, another social-conservative state, is likely to hold the next primary. Romney was stung in Iowa in 2008 by former Gov. Mike Huckabee of Arkansas, which was bad enough, but losing in his home region to McCain five days later was too
much for his campaign to absorb. The big talk in the last days of spring is the way former Gov. Tim Pawlenty of Minnesota linked Obama’s health care plan, which is anathema to Republicans, to Romney’s plan in Massachusetts by speaking of “Obamneycare.” Pawlenty used the word again at the debate last Monday at St. Anselm College, but its long-term effect may be to elevate Romney into a political if not moral equivalent of the president — not the sort of tactic that always benefits a challenger.
Health care is top issue The health care issue underlines Romney’s biggest task, which is to counter the notion that he is willing to change his views with the political breezes. His opponents believe he supported legalized abortion and a health care plan in Massachusetts because the political atmosphere in the state demanded it, and that he abandoned those views once he ascertained that the national political atmosphere required him to do so. Then again, he is being pilloried for his failure to change his mind on global warming. The result is a political conundrum for Romney as great as any front-runner has had since Mondale was tarred as being the instrument of traditional Democratic special interests, especially organized labor. If Romney adjusts his position on global warming, he will be declared an opportunist. If he doesn’t, he will be at odds with a major tenet of the modern Republican creed. Right now Romney is determined to assure that Republicans don’t change their minds. He has the biggest advantage in the Gallup poll that any Republican contender has possessed in the race. That margin will shrink. The story of the 2012 Republican presidential nomination fight will be how much it shrinks, at what rate it shrinks and whether it disappears. Such is the advantage and the danger of front-runner status. — David Shribman is executive editor of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
Police requests To the editor: During last week’s study session, Lawrence Police Chief Tarik Khatib submitted a memo to the City Commission, requesting several million dollars in funding for the Lawrence Police Department (LPD). This money would be in addition to the department’s proposed $14 million budget for FY 2012. The additional monies are proposed to fund staff positions, facility improvements and equipment purchases. While some of the items listed in the memo may have merit, others warrant serious skepticism. Does the LPD really need an armored car and new submachine guns with platforms? Given the city’s current economic condition, this LPD request must be scrutinized by city commissioners and citizens alike. I have suggested to city leaders that the LPD needs to engage the community in developing a strategic long-range plan to determine budgetary and departmental priorities. I continue to hope that our new chief will heed this call and solicit feedback and participation from taxpayers.

social world of Washington, D.C., to make those decisions for us without any referendum. Then comes the reality of elections and those same individuals begin to worry about losing their cherished roles in the system. Now public opinion regains its power to influence not only foreign policy but exactly who should be our representatives placed in those positions, so it is now that they read their mail and discover to their apparent dismay that the American electorate is very concerned about our having troops in 150 countries around the world and the huge sums of national treasure and numbers of American lives being thrown away with no chance whatsoever of permanently halting an idea whose time has come. That idea is that America is no longer in a position to dictate to other nations what their future is to be.

In 2005, a resource plan proposed for the LPD suggested that quantifiable performance measures to be tied to funding, to no avail. In 2010, the city auditor identified a number of potential performance audit topics, and suggested that the LPD’s administrative bureau be reviewed. Thus far, neither of these efforts toward accountability have been embraced by the City Commission. I encourage Lawrencians to review the police department’s wish list and communicate their questions and concerns to both the chief and the City Commission. Laura Routh, Lawrence

of Douglas County Planning Committee, we would like to thank the residents of Douglas County for their generosity and support. Sixty-four teams participated in this year’s event, raising more than $163,000 to further the American Cancer Society’s mission of eliminating cancer by helping people stay well, helping people get well, by finding cures, and by fighting back. The outstanding support received proves that the people of Douglas County are truly committed to the fight against cancer. We want to applaud the 260 survivors and countless caregivers who participated in the opening lap and the survivor recognition. They are the reason we continue the fight so that each year there can be more and more people living wonderful lives and celebrating more birthdays, following a diagnosis of cancer. Remember it’s not too early to become involved in Relay For Life for next year. Together we will celebrate the lives of those who’ve battled and won, remember those we’ve lost and fight back against a disease that affects us all and that takes too much. Shelle Arnold.

Headstone added to Negro Leaguer’s grave TOPEKA (AP) — After spending 30 years buried in an unmarked grave, a former Negro League baseball player now has a headstone to mark his final resting spot. About 40 family friends and baseball fans gathered over the weekend at Topeka’s Mount Hope Cemetery to pay tribute to Carroll Ray “Dink” Mothell. The Topeka native played 15 seasons in the Negro Leagues starting in 1920, mostly with the Kansas City Monarchs. The Society for American Baseball Research has set out to honor former players who died in anonymity. Mothell’s headstone is the 22nd installed since the group started the effort in 2004. “He was a great ballplayer all around and was part of two championship teams in 1924 and 1925 for the Kansas City Monarchs,” said Larry Lester, a Negro League author and member of SABR. “He was a great utility ballplayer. He played at least one game at every position.” Author Phil Dixon said Mothell led him to write books on the Negro Leagues. “I think Dink Mothell deserves greater recognition than probably history will ever give him, but Topeka should be proud,” Dixon said.

LHS’s Stoll to team up with USA Baseball
602 E. 9th • Lawrence
(785) 843-4522 patchenelectric.com
Lions’ leader to help select national team By Matt Tait firstname.lastname@example.org
For the past couple of summers, Lawrence High baseball coach Brad Stoll has worked with some of the best college baseball players in the country in the famed Cape Cod League in New England. This summer, he’s turning pro. Stoll, one of three coaches in history to Stoll lead LHS to a state baseball title, will travel this week to North Carolina to coach and evaluate talent at a weeklong tryout for USA Baseball. Brian McRae, the former Major Leaguer who now runs the KC Sluggers, a local summer program, introduced Stoll to some of the USA Baseball guys last year at the national convention in Nashville. A few months later, Stoll received the invite he’s been waiting for his entire life. “It’s just like anything else in baseball and athletics and probably the business world,” Stoll said. “It’s you know a guy that knows a guy. I’ve always wanted to get involved with USA Baseball and when they called and asked me if I wanted to be a part of it, I jumped at the opportunity.” In all, 130-140 high school players from the graduating classes of 2012 and 2013 will attend the trial, with the goal being to crack the final 50 that Stoll will help select. It’s a sun-up to sun-down endeavor for the coaches, who each will coach a team during the day and participate in group evaluations by night. Former New York Yankee Scott Brosius will manage the final squad that is scheduled to compete in Colombia later this summer. Working with a former big leaguer who owns three World Series rings is something Stoll is amped up about. “It’ll be a lot of fun to hear his feedback,” Stoll said. “Obviously, he knows what he’s doing so it’ll be fun to collaborate with him. I’m one of those guys who’s constantly asking questions. Whether it’s a scout or a high school coach or a college coach, I’m always looking for new ideas.” Stoll continued: “To hear how they break down a player, how they like a guy’s swing or delivery on the mound, I can take that and use that to teach and reach the Lawrence High kids.” Of the 17 players assigned to Stoll’s squad, 15 are from California. One is from Florida and the other is from Pennsylvania. The heavy dose of California kids did not surprise Stoll. “If you look at the rosters, it’s just like you’d expect, 90 percent of them are from Florida, Texas, Arizona and California,” he said. “It’s the best of the best. Last year, (Free State graduate Cody) Kukuk was involved and Bubba Starling was there and there were three or four other first rounders and a lot of great players.” This year, the program is hoping to find a few more players like Starling and Kukuk. “That’s kind of how I got involved,” Stoll said. “They want to make sure that the best kids in the Midwest are getting invited and getting a look.” With America’s game getting more global all the time, Stoll views programs such as USA Baseball as critical for the future success of American players both at home and on the international stage. “I think that’s why they have put such an emphasis on the younger teams,” Stoll said. “So that, on the worldwide stage, USA Baseball can gain some steam back again.”
RORY MCILROY, OF NORTHERN IRELAND, REACTS after sinking his last putt on the 18th hole, to win the U.S. Open Sunday in Bethesda, Md.
McIlroy leaves no doubt BETHESDA , M D. (AP) — It took less than an hour for Rory McIlroy to effectively bury any demons from Augusta National. An 8-foot birdie at Congressional Country Club’s opening hole. Three holes later, another from 3 feet away. No one would be allowed a chance to threaten. Instead, McIlroy brought down the curtain on one of the most dominant perOnce he formances started, we in majorwere all championship playing for annals. second. It’s A 2tough to win a under-par 69 turned major, and it’s Sunday’s probably even final round tougher to win into a coroit like that.” nation march, — PGA Tour pro Lee smashing the U.S. Westwood on McIlroy’s Open scor- incredible week ing record by four strokes as the 22-year-old pro left his nearest pursuer eight shots in his wake. “To win the U.S. Open in a bit of style is always nice,” said McIlroy, the fourth-youngest U.S. Open winner. The Northern Ireland native finished at 16-under 268, blitzing the previous Open record of 272, set by Jack Nicklaus in 1980, and later matched by Lee Janzen (1993), Tiger Woods (2000) and Jim Furyk (2003). McIlroy also rewrote the Open’s scoring record after two rounds (131) and again after three (199). In addition, he joined Lee Trevino (1968) and Lee Janzen (1993) as the only men to break 70 in all four Open rounds. “It’s amazing how comfortably he’s lapping the field,” threetime major champion Padraig Harrington said. Though McIlroy couldn’t approach Woods’ record winning margin of 15 shots when he scorched Pebble Beach, it goes down as No. 4 on the list. Willie Smith was 11 up on the field in 1899; James Barnes won by nine in 1921. “Once he started, we were all playing for second,” Lee Westwood said. “It’s tough to win a major, and it’s probably even tougher to win it like that.”

EUDORA HIGH GRADUATE MELISSA FERNANDEZ, SHOWN HERE COMPETING ON THE BALANCE BEAM for the University of Illinois, where she earned All-American honors three times, has traded in the hard-core world of competitive gymnastics for a chance to join the circus — literally.
Eudora grad eyes spot with Cirque du Soleil MORE: Log on to www.ljworld.com for a video interview with Fernandez, who discusses her potential career with Cirque du Soleil.
By Tom Keegan email@example.com
For most at the age of 6, tumbling equipment means free-spirited play time, a total escape from the structured world of bedtime and timeout. For Melissa Fernandez, born in Honduras and raised in Eudora, it was the age she began on the path to pursuing precision and the perfect score in gymnastics. That pursuit culminated in a fifth-place finish in the all-around competition and a tie for fifth in the balance beam at the NCAA nationals in Cleveland in April. While competing at the University of Illinois, Fernandez three times earned All-American honors.
The years and years of workouts resulted in extraordinary achievement. Now, when she steps into a gym, she enters the fantasy world of a small child. “I’m done competing in gymnastics, which is kind of nice,” Fernandez said. “I can finally just go into the gym and play on the equipment. It’s always kind of been like that. It’s always been fun, but now I’m not doing routines, I’m not doing tumble sets and things like that. I’m just in there playing with new skills and doing whatever I want. There is no stress at all.” All that’s missing from her little girl’s fantasy world is pretending she has a job in the circus. The only reason that’s not included is she need not pretend. On July 17, Fernandez leaves home for 11 weeks of training in
Montreal in preparation for starting a career with Cirque du Soleil, which bills itself as “a dramatic mix of circus arts and street entertainment” on its official website. With the help of teammates and coaches at Illinois, Fernandez put together a demo tape of her gymnastics highlights, which ultimately led to an audition in Orlando and an invitation to the training in Montreal. The feel she obtained for what sort of career she is pursuing took on more reality with the audition in Orlando and made her want it all the more. “The people they bring together and the minds and creativity is just great and it’s an awesome atmosphere,” she said.

He scored 18 points and grabbed a batch of rebounds in Thursday’s Rock Chalk Roundball Classic at Free State High. “I work out a lot.

Graves signed autographs for KU fans for a half hour following Thursday’s game.

Denny Hamlin wins first Sprint Cup BROOKLYN, MICH. (AP) — Two days after facing questions about unauthorized auto parts and possible penalties, Denny Hamlin enjoyed a happier kind of scrutiny. Hamlin raced to his first NASCAR Sprint Cup victory over the year, holding off Matt Kenseth on Sunday at Michigan International Speedway. The drivers appeared headed for a fuel-mileage finish, then a late caution enabled them to make pit stops before a frantic closing five-lap sprint. “Over these last six weeks, I can honestly say we’ve had a chance to win each and every race,” Hamlin
said. “For me, if I go about eight weeks without winning, I’m wondering what the heck’s going on.” Kenseth was the only driver with a shot to catch Hamlin in the final moments. Kenseth tried to go both above and below the leader, but was unable to pass Hamlin’s No. 11 Toyota. Hamlin won by 0.281 seconds for his second straight victory in the June race at the track. Kyle Busch was third, giving Joe Gibbs Racing two of the top three spots after the team was told to change oil pans before Friday’s practice. NASCAR said oil pans from cars driven by Hamlin, Busch and Joey Logano

were not submitted for approval before opening day inspection. The team could face additional penalties this week, but Hamlin and Busch hardly seemed distracted. “It speaks volumes to the experience and resilience of this 11 car that you can start the week off with a down note and put that behind you and make sure that it doesn’t affect what’s getting ready to happen,” said Mike Ford, Hamlin’s crew chief. “This team usually comes out swinging when its back’s against the ropes. Sometimes we connect and sometimes we get dotted in the eye.”
Team president J.D. Gibbs said Friday’s situation was a good lesson. “We want to be here with integrity,” Gibbs said. “We’ve made mistakes in the past as a team, and I’m sure we’ll make mistakes in the future. If we can’t conduct ourselves in the right way, there’s no use in us doing this.” Hamlin won eight times last year and contended for the series title but was unable to match Jimmie Johnson. Hamlin was winless this season, although he led early last weekend at Pocono Raceway.

BETHESDA, MD. — Even when Tiger Woods isn’t here, he is a presence. He was the talk of the town at the U.S. Open this week, as Rory McIlroy was throttling the field and giving Congressional Country Club — to use a political term from the last election — “a shellacking.” Jason Day, who wound up finishing second, said of McIlroy the other day, “The way he’s playing out there, it’s almost Tiger-esque.” Graeme McDowell, who handed back the U.S. Open trophy and wound up hugging the winner, said: “He’s potentially the next Tiger Woods. He’s that good.” It was only natural to compare McIlroy to Woods, considering no prodigy has wiped the floor with the opposition at a major like this since Woods did it a couple of times, at the 1997 Masters and 2000 U.S. Open. It might be a tad premature, maybe by, say, 15 years and at least a dozen major titles. So let’s not get ahead of ourselves. McIlroy is not likely to ever totally replace Woods as a galvanizing, marketable figure. He is not American. He doesn’t have a catchy nickname (and the fancy head covers to match). He is not the groundbreaker that Woods was — a black man in a mostly white sport. But what McIlroy did do this past week was make golf fun to watch again, for now and for the foreseeable future. That was no easy task. Since the Woods era began with that Masters win, and especially since his three majors in 2000, it seems that Woods became golf in the eyes of the public, at least the American public. With the occasional exception of Phil Mickelson winning a biggie, it has seemed that if Woods wasn’t winning a golf event, the event didn’t matter. This week was different. McIlroy was compelling, both because of his dominance and the risk that he might fall off a cliff again at any minute, as he had at the Masters. “I didn’t think that was going to happen again, and it hasn’t,” said Jack Nicklaus, who has become a mentor to the 22-year-old from Northern Ireland. At this point, McIlroy is even with both Nicklaus and Woods on one score. When each of the latter two was 22, he had one major. At this point, it is just cool to imagine McIlroy chasing Woods’ standards the way Woods has been chasing Nicklaus’ record of 18 major titles. Only this is better. Once Woods recovers from his knee and Achilles injuries, we will see them go head-to-head as elite players, the way Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer used to. Now that will be worth watching. McIlroy said yesterday, having accepted the U.S. Open trophy, that he always has watched Woods and tried to emulate him. He was still doing that yesterday. “Just trying to go out there with the same intensity he has — no lead is big enough,” the newest Open champion said. “When you win a major quite early in your career, everyone is going to draw comparisons. It’s natural. I know he doesn’t watch much golf on TV,” McIlroy said, although it is safe to assume Woods caught at least part of this Open. “It would be nice for him to be healthy again and be back out on the golf course because he does bring a little something extra to tournaments. He’s Tiger Woods. I’m just happy to be sitting here with the trophy that has his name on it.” McIlroy has a long way to go to reach Woods’ achievements and stature. Then again, the 2011 Open champion showed yesterday that he can rebound from spectacular failure — and he is way ahead of Woods on that score. Each of them brings much to the dance. When they both are on the same floor from now on, everyone who watches golf will be a winner.

Jones, Dempsey score, U.S. advances WASHINGTON — Jermaine Jones broke a scoreless tie early in the second half, leading the United States to a 2-0 victory over Jamaica in the CONCACAF Gold Cup quarterfinals Sunday. Jones fired a shot from outside the penalty area in the 49th minute, and Jamaica defender Jermaine Taylor stuck out his foot, deflecting the ball past goalkeeper Donovan Ricketts. To celebrate his Father’s Day goal, Jones gave a salute, honoring his soldier father. “It was a nice little gift,” said Jones in postgame remarks translated from German by teammate Steve Cherundolo. Jones started his international career playing in three friendlies for Germany before FIFA allowed his move to the United States team in 2009. “It was a sign of respect,” Jones said of the celebration. The United States will face the Panama-El Salvador winner in the semifinals on Wednesday in Houston. Jones was in the middle of several big plays until he left the game in the 75th minute for substitute Maurice Edu. Jones seemed to be in position for a goal late in the opening half, when Ricketts saved a shot by Juan Agudelo and the rebound bounced straight to Jones, but he couldn’t control the ball.
MLB Marlins manager Rodriguez resigns MIAMI — With the Florida Marlins enduring one of the worst losing skids in franchise history, Edwin Rodriguez decided Sunday morning it was time to call it quits as Marlins manager. Rodriguez, who replaced Fredi Gonzalez June 23, 2010 and became the first Puerto Rican-born manager in major league history, turned in his resignation Sunday morning about two hours before the last-place Marlins faced the Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field. Bench coach Brandon Hyde managed the team in Sunday’s 2-1 loss. Larry Beinfest, team president of baseball operations, said the Marlins would immediately look for an interim manager to finish out the season. Hyde and former Marlins manager Jack McKeon, who guided the team to the 2003 World Series title, are candidates for the interim job, according to sources. Nationals third base coach Bo Porter, a former Marlins third base coach, could be another candidate the Marlins consider according to ESPN. “This has been extremely frustrating for everyone,” Beinfest said. “I think everybody here knows exactly what’s going on. The 17 out of 18 (losses), the way we’ve played. The way we’ve performed has been tough on everyone, especially (Rodriguez).”
Cards’ Pujols injures wrist ST. LOUIS — St. Louis Cardinals first baseman Albert Pujols was hurt on a play at first base in the sixth inning and left Sunday’s game against the Kansas City Royals. A Cardinals spokesman said a preliminary evaluation revealed Pujols sustained a sprain to his left wrist. He will receive further evaluation Monday, an off-day for the Cardinals before they open a three-game series with the Philadelphia Phillies. Wilson Betemit hit a chopper up the middle off starter Jamie Garcia. Second baseman Pete Kozma back-handed the ball and threw while in the air to first, pulling Pujols off the bag. As Pujols went to tag Betemit, he hit Pujols’ glove hand and the Cards’ three-time MVP went down to the ground in pain.
Indians fire hitting coach Nunnally CLEVELAND — The Cleveland Indians’ recent offensive slump has cost Jon Nunnally his job as hitting coach. Nunnally has been replaced by Bruce Fields, the Indians announced before Sunday’s game against the Pittsburgh Pirates. The Indians were shut out six times in 18 games from May 27 to June 14. They went 513, twice winning by 1-0 scores. In 13 games from June 2-13, they were 7-for-75 (.093) with runners in scoring position. Fields is in his sixth year in the organization, serving as minor-league hitting instructor since 2007 following one season as a hitting coach in Triple-A.
COLLEGE WORLD SERIES Gamecocks win 5-4 on Wingo’s hit OMAHA, NEB. — Scott Wingo drilled a basesloaded single off the right-field wall in the bottom of the ninth inning to give defending national champion South Carolina a 5-4 victory over Texas A&M at the College World Series on Sunday night. South Carolina (51-14) advanced to a Bracket 2 winners’ game against Virginia on Tuesday night. The Aggies (47-21) play California in an elimination game that afternoon. Wingo’s winning hit against Nick Fleece capped his career-best four-hit night, and he reached base five times. Robert Beary doubled off the right-field fence to start the inning against Kyle Martin (2-3). Beary went to third when 2010 CWS Most Outstanding Player Jaackie Bradley Jr., playing in his first game in two months, sliced a liner into left off Fleece. Evan Marzilli walked to load the bases. Michael Roth, John Taylor and Matt Price (6-3) combined to hold the Aggies hitless in the last five innings.

Olbermann now on Current TV Formerly of MSNBC, “Countdown With Keith Olbermann” (7 p.m.) moves to Current TV, Monday through Friday. What is Current TV? Or, rather, where is Current TV? According to the network, Current TV is now available in 60 million homes, on many cable providers and both Dish and Direct TV. Keith Olbermann’s reasons for leaving MSNBC remain a tad murky, and the changes he makes to “Countdown,” if any, remain to be seen. Current is clearly hoping he will help put the network on the TV map, in much the same way “Countdown” raised awareness of MSNBC. It’s easy to forget that way back in the late 1990s, when MSNBC first began, its average audience was in the tens of thousands. Current’s best-known show, “Vanguard” (8 p.m. today), showcases young correspondents and video documentarians offering an extended examination of a single subject. The stories are a rather welcome break from the short, sound bite-driven coverage of network news and a nice departure from cable news networks and their slavish devotion to politics as a spectator sport and, therefore, a place where campaigning never ends and governing doesn’t much matter. Tonight’s “Vanguard” focuses on the scourge of heroin addiction in Massachusetts, an epidemic fueled by the easy access to prescription painkillers, most notably OxyContin. Apparently many young people get hooked on OxyContin and then discover that heroin provides a comparable high at a much lower price. Correspondent Mariana van Zeller spends time with addicts and former addicts, among them a former star football player who got hooked on painkillers after a gridiron injury. She also examines the emergence of Florida as a source of cheap and readily available OxyContin and finds that prescription drugs from the Sunshine State have become a common Massachusetts street drug, like cocaine and crack. ● The documentary “Sex Crimes Unit” (8 p.m., HBO) offers a real-life look at the kind of crimes solved on “Law & Order: SVU” and examines the relatively recent emergence of this field of law. As late as the 1970s, laws dating back centuries made it impossible to bring rape charges or sexual assault cases to court. And women victims and accusers were often subject to a brutal and humiliating courtroom exposure of their private lives and sexual history. As this film makes rather clear, the system was weighted in favor of protecting a man’s honor and operated under the assumption that most assault victims had only their behavior, or their character, to blame. “Unit” also stresses that no matter how much societal attitudes have changed, many cases now are solved only because of the emergence of DNA evidence and the widespread use of surveillance cameras in stores, in nightclubs and on the streets. ● One’s about addiction and the other is sadly habit-forming. “Intervention” (8 p.m., A&E) returns for an 11th season. “Hoarders” (9 p.m., A&E) enters its fourth season of cringe-inducing viewing.
Tonight’s other highlights ● Folks turn their pool into a shrine to Mickey Mouse on “My Yard Goes Disney” (7 p.m., HGTV). ● Questions arise on “Switched at Birth” (8 p.m., ABC Family). ● “Unsung” (9 p.m., TV One), the series dedicated to underappreciated music acts, profiles Alexander O’Neal and Cherrelle.
JACQUELINE BIGAR’S STARS For Monday, June 20: This year, you swing from detached to handson. You seem to understand the variables and what promotes one type of behavior rather than another. If you are single, building a good relationship could take time. If you are attached, your sweetie might be taken aback by your changeability, but it certainly keeps life lively. Pisces pushes you into the limelight. The Stars Show the Kind of Day You'll Have: 5Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult Aries (March 21-April 19) ★★★★ Use the daytime hours to the max, when you seem to be in sync with your energy. Others might be contentious; you might be contentious as well. Tonight: Vanish. Taurus (April 20-May 20) ★★★★ You could find that discordant energy is the name of the game. How you handle a key issue might change radically because of others' feedback. Tonight: Only where you want to be. Gemini (May 21-June 20) ★★★★★ Keep reaching out for those at a distance. You might not be able to
find the right solution until you detach and get a better perspective. Tonight: Having fun. Cancer (June 21-July 22) ★★★★ A partner might not be whispering in your ear, but quite clearly this person has a strong opinion, which he or she might expect you to follow. Tonight: Relax your mind with a favorite activity. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) ★★★★ Others come to you early in the day. You easily could feel angry before you have a chance to look at what is happening. Tonight: Think outside the box. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) ★★★★ Anything is possible, as long as you can remain relaxed and less dominant. Listen to news with a touch of skepticism. Tonight: Chat over dinner. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) ★★★★ Get into a project early on if you want to complete it early. You could be overwhelmed otherwise. Know where you are coming from with a child or key loved one. Tonight: Downtime. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) ★★★ Your domestic situation needs attention, even if you just need time to reflect. The answers might not be easily forthcoming. Tonight: Head

D e a r A n n i e : I dated “Tony” for a year before we married two years ago. I thought I knew him, but shortly after the wedding, I discovered that everything about him was a lie. This included falsehoods about his financial situation, his family, his ex-wife, his children and his jobs. He lied about little things, big things, everything. I have lost all trust in him. When I ask Tony why he deceived me, he goes into defense mode and says he did it to protect himself. He claims I only care about the money. I feel trapped with a man I don’t know. Tony’s family realizes that we are having problems, but they are unaware of the lies. It would break their hearts. (He had me feeling sorry for him when he told me they were abusive — more lies.) Should I stay or walk away? I care about Tony, but I am not in love with him any longer. — Married to a Fabricator

CARDINALS 5, ROYALS 4
Walk-off beats K.C. S T . L O U I S ( AP ) — The St. Louis Cardinals found a way to rally past the Kansas City Royals despite losing Albert Pujols to an injury. Pujols sprained his left wrist and hurt his shoulder trying to make a tag at first base, but the Cardinals recovered to beat the Royals 5-4 on Skip Schumaker’s ninthinning homer on Sunday. The Cardinals moved into a tie for first place in the NL Central with Milwaukee, which lost at Boston. Pujols was injured in the sixth and the three-time NL MVP left the game. He will be evaluated on Monday, a day off for St. Louis. Manager Tony La Russa said he experienced a range of emotions when he saw his first baseman go down. “It scared the hell out of all of us,” La Russa said. “It smoked him pretty good. The doctor said he has good strength so that makes us kind of optimistic. First indications are that we caught a break.” Pujols, hitting .279, was 3for-3 with his 17th home run. The fifth-inning shot gave St. Louis a 3-2 lead. Lance Berkman, who had been given a rest Sunday, replaced Pujols at first. Leading off the ninth, Alcides Escobar hit his first home run on a 3-2 pitch from St. Louis reliever Fernando Salas, who threw 10 pitches in the at-bat. It was Escobar’s first homer in 325 at-bats and it tied the game at 4. It marked just the second blown save in 15 attempts for Salas (4-1). After leadoff hitter Dan Descalso got thrown out trying to stretch a single, Schumaker connected off Tim
Here’s a look at the top 8 finishers — and KU grad Gary Woodland — at this week’s U.S. Open in Bethesda, Md.
McIlroy now has held at least a share of the lead in the past nine rounds at majors, including a brief spell in the final round of last year’s PGA Championship before finishing one shot out of a playoff. “Congrats to Rory,” Woods said in a statement. “What a performance from start to finish. Enjoy the win. Well done.” It was a vastly different final chapter than what transpired at The Masters. McIlroy admits he played defensively at Augusta National, watching it backfire when a four-shot lead to begin the final day had dwindled to one by the turn. The Ulsterman put the hammer down until late at Congressional. After those early birdies sent

Collins (3-4), the fifth Royals pitcher. It was Schumaker’s second game-ending homer, the first coming in 2008, and his first home run since April 13. “I’m not sure there’s a better feeling than hitting a home run walk off,” Schumaker said. “It doesn’t happen too often, home runs in general, so I’ll take it.” It was also Schumaker’s first major-league home run off a left-hander. “I was disappointed I was out of the game and I didn’t get to punch Schumaker in the ribs after the walk-off,” Pujols said. Schumaker hit Collins’ second pitch. “He was obviously sitting fastball,” Collins said. “He got it and he hit it. It might have been a little bit over the plate. I was trying to get back into the count.”

The tap-in moved him to 17 under, another Open record. “That was the point in the round,” McIlroy said, “that I felt it was mine to lose.”

knowing where she will be sent at the end of it, provided she makes the cut, or what acts she’ll perform. She’s as open-minded as she is excited for the opportunity. “At this point, it doesn’t really matter to me because I’m young and if they want me to tour, I’d love to see the world,” she said. “I’m single. I can do that and why not do that when I’m able to? That would be fantastic. If I’m set up in Vegas, hey, that’s great, too. If I’m set up in Orlando, that would be really great.” Learning her role will come in time. “They told me some of the things I’ll be training for, but it’s more holistic training,” she said. “They’re going to be training artistic and acrobatic stuff. They’re going to be teaching me how to put on my circus makeup, fitting me for costumes and things like that and teaching me to be a performer.” Her precise gymnastic feats create confidence in both her and her future employers that she can learn the fundamentals quickly and safely.

ing out how to blend her charismatic personality into the act will be the next step. “With gymnastics, it’s very strict and it’s very structured,” Fernandez said. “You do this and you do it this way, so we don’t really get that creative side of it. Up there, they’re going to teach us how to be creative and teach us how to perform in front of a large crowd.” She has been told a couple of the positions for which she will train. “A Russian Swing Fire and also the Chinese Poles,” she said. “The Chinese Poles, it’s a big, long pole, there are a couple of them and there are videos on YouTube I’ve seen
where you just climb up on them and hold a couple of strength positions and do some other things. The Russian Swing Fire is a big swing that goes back and forth and launches you off it and you do some flips.” Fernandez didn’t spend 16 years competing in gymnastics so she one day could land a job in the circus. So why did she put all that time into the sport known to outsiders as one that causes injuries as much as anything else? “My favorite part is probably how much you have to push yourself and the perfection that you seek,” she said. “And a lot of times you don’t get that. You’re doing a routine and you fall or something isn’t correct and that’s what drives you to get back up on the bar or get back up on the beam to make it perfect. And I think that’s what I love. I love that seeking perfection and driving for it and achieving it. When you achieve it, it’s like, oh my gosh, it’s the best feeling in the world.” She anticipates having similar feelings when she blends performing arts with acrobatic moves in front of large crowds, possibly all over the world, considerably more exciting stuff than the typical first job out of college.
ents of 21⁄2-year-old daughter Kori Anne. “It definitely felt good to see the guys. Back in the day we were all playing together. It’s good to come back, get together and hear the stories.” To relive one Graves story ... he scored 16 points and grabbed 16 rebounds in KU’s 81-78 loss to Syracuse in the 2003 NCAA finals. Some say he would have been a legitimate contender for Final Four MVP had the Jayhawks upended the Orange for the crown.
Of course, the overwhelming favorite would have been Nick Collison, who had 21 rebounds and 19 points in the final, not to mention Keith Langford, who scored 19 in the final and 23 in a 94-61 semifinal win over Marquette. Graves had nine boards and five points against the Golden Eagles to go 16 with his ⁄16 final. “I don’t know. That’s up to everybody else,” Graves said with a smile, asked if he was KU’s MVP of the title game. “You could ask a lot of people and they would disagree.”
They’re going to be training artistic and acrobatic stuff. They’re going to be teaching me how to put on my circus makeup, fitting me for costumes and things like that and teaching me to be a performer.” — Eudora High graduate Melissa Fernandez, who, after finishing her gymnastics career at Illinois, is set to make a run at the circus
Australia’s Jason Day claimed the runner-up medal, posting a 68 to give him second place in back-to-back majors. He finished two shots ahead of a quartet at 6 under. McIlroy became the youngest U.S. Open champion since Bobby Jones, then 21, won the first of his four titles in 1923. Only two other men have won it at a younger age — Johnny McDermott (19) at the 1911 Open and Francis Ouimet (20) two years later. “He has probably the most talent I’ve ever seen from a golfer,” said Luke Donald, No. 1 in the world rankings. “Lovely to watch him play — such a fluid motion, and he hits it far. He’s got a great attitude on and off the golf course.” Said Graeme McDowell, the outgoing Open champion: Matt Slocum/AP Photo “Nothing this kid does ever surprises me.
