Residents waiting over 3 hours in DMV lines By Shaun Hittle

Area residents are reporting long wait times when renewing or applying for driver’s licenses at the state’s Douglas County service station in

DMV workers attribute the longer lines partly to the seasonal influx of teens getting their driver’s licenses.

GOP hostility blocked Kan. work on health law

Scholars from the School of Rock


Ruling expected today By John Hanna Associated Press

TOPEKA — Kansas officials have made little progress toward enacting a key part of the federal health care overhaul, and Gov. Sam Brownback and fellow Republican critics of the law are instead hoping that the U.S. Supreme Court will strike it down, saving them the trouble. If the nation’s highest court does that in its ruling, which is expected today, many Kansas officials are likely to celebrate. But if the justices uphold even part of the law, the state could find itself with a new health insurance exchange over which it has little control. Please see RULING, page 5A

TOPEKA — The Kansas Board of Regents recently asked regents schools to come back with their specific funding requests. But board members got more than they bargained for. So, the regents told the schools to prioritize their projects knowing that some of the initiatives won’t make the final budget cut that is sent to Gov. Sam Brownback for consideration later this year. Please see REGENTS, page 2A

“We cant send over $160 million (in proposed projects) and be credible,” said Regent Fred Logan of Prairie Village. “We need to shape the package to give ourselves the best chance of success. My main concern is coming up with a systemwide proposal that doesn’t get us laughed out of the building,” he said. Board members will conduct a budget workshop July 17. Kansas University has included two big ticket items in its request. One is $30 million in state funds to help build a new $75 million medical education building at the School of Medicine in Kansas City, Kan. The other is a recurring annual appropriation of $2.5 million to support a Kansas Institute for Translational Chemical Biology, which would be aimed at bolstering KU’s drug discovery efforts. During a discussion at the regents meeting last week, Chairman Ed McKechnie of Arcadia said, “I feel strongly about the medical education building.” He said that proposal fits the strategic plan of both the school and the state to increase the number of physicians in Kansas and bring in more research dollars. According to KU, the current medical education building, which opened in 1976, is small, outdated and doesn’t meet standards required by the school’s accrediting body. Its classrooms are designed for lectures rather than modern small-group learning. The Kansas Institute for Translational Chemical Biology will support both the KU Cancer Center and the school’s continuing membership in the Association of American Universities, school officials say. Both budget proposals are extremely important, said KU Vice Chancellor of Public Affairs Tim Caboni. “We went through a list of up to 100 of those,” Caboni said. He said the ones KU submitted to the regents “really are the priorities,” and he wouldn’t want to rank them in a particular order. KU has also said it will need additional state funding to improve the KU Medical Center, including the School of Medicine in Wichita, but officials haven’t put a dollar figure on that yet. Regent Kenny Wilk of Lansing said the requests from all of the schools must include information on what the schools have done with recent budget enhancements. “A strong business case,” must be made with every request, he said. In the past, Brownback has shown he favors funding requests that are for specific purposes aimed at enhancing strengths at the schools. Other big-ticket funding requests before the regents include:

 $16 million in additional funding for technical colleges.

 $15 million for expansion of the Kansas Technology Center at Pittsburg State University.

 $5 million annual appropriation to expand agricultural research at Kansas State University.

$5 million annual appropriation to improve the College of Architecture, Planning and Design at KSU.

 $5 million annual appropriation for a research synergy center at KSU.

$8 million for community colleges.

Crews battle wildfires Taste in parts of Kansas


OBERLIN (AP) — Crews worked in searing heat Wednesday to contain scattered fires scorching mostly farm acreage and grassland in parched areas of central, north-central and northwestern Kansas. No evacuations or injuries were reported as of Wednesday evening, and structural damage was limited to farm buildings and outbuildings, said Sharon Watson, spokeswoman for the Kansas Division of Emergency Management. Gov. Sam Brownback, citing the risk of wildfires, issued an emergency declaration late Wednesday afternoon for nine central and north-central counties: Barton, Ellis, Ellsworth, Lincoln, Mitchell, Osborne, Phillips, Rooks and Russell. In northwestern Kansas, Decatur County officials reported Wednesday fires that broke out Tuesday were extinguished after burning about 5,000 acres. No homes were destroyed there. Watson said a large fire

in Phillips County was contained Wednesday evening after the Kansas Highway Patrol used aircraft to map the blaze and help crews on the ground locate hotspots. Fires in rural southeastern Rooks County and northcentral Ellis County also were contained Wednesday evening, and fires in Russell and Barton counties were brought under control earlier in the day. The other four counties covered by Brownback’s declaration were included because they could be at risk from fires in adjacent areas, Watson said. The relentless heat and the dry conditions that contributed to the fires prompted temporary activation of the State Emergency Operations Center in Topeka, to monitor information from county emergency managers. The center was deactivated at 9 p.m. Wednesday. “We can see what this hot, dry weather is doing to firefighting efforts in Colorado and other states,” Maj. Gen. Lee Ta-

fanelli, the state adjutant general and director of the Emergency Management Division, said in a news release. “We want to make sure we stay ahead of the curve and be ready to render assistance to our county emergency management partners if needed.” Most of Kansas has been under heat-related warnings for days, with northwest and north-central Kansas subject to a red flag warning through Wednesday, meaning there’s a serious risk of fire across the region because of the searing heat, strong winds and low humidity. Hill City, in northwestern Kansas’ Graham County, once again had the state’s high temperature Wednesday at 115 degrees. But the extreme heat affected cities throughout the state, with other highs of 113 at Hays and Russell, 111 at Dodge City, 110 at Goodland and Salina and 109 at Garden City and Medicine Lodge.

At the Douglas County Commission meeting Wednesday, several procedural and administrative measures were passed to push forward ongoing projects. The three commissioners unanimously passed a resolution to begin levying a special assessment district around Yankee Tank Dam, betCOUNTY COMMISSION ter known as Lake Alvamar. This means that the county can proceed in collecting special $5,000 tax payments from the people who own land around the water feature. The special assessment is part of a months-long arrangement deal to get the dam repaired through payment from the county, city, Kansas Department of Transportation and the state. About 85 percent of the affected landowners agreed to the assessment, which can be paid in full or over time. Regulations required that another public meeting be held before the tax officially went into effect. A lone homeowner came by the meeting, but he didn’t give any public comment. The commissioners also set a public hearing on a proposal to transfer some county land near the United Way center to Tenants to Homeowners to build a senior housing facility. This project is in much earlier stages, but its formal public comment session will be at 6:35 p.m. Aug. 8 on the second floor of the Douglas County Courthouse, at 11th and Massachusetts streets. Commissioners also passed some technical accounting measures and received recommendations for the food policy council. In a walk-on item in the meeting’s agenda, commissioners heard from staff of the emergency management department about the possible need for a burn ban in the county. The emergency managers didn’t recommend one — fire departments hadn’t requested that they do — but the commission can meet next week if dry, hot conditions worsen. Commissioners are currently not scheduled to meet next week because of the Fourth of July holiday.

The Lied Center is offering ticket exchanges or a refund for ticket holders, who may call 864-2787 for more information. Shankar is an virtuoso sitarist, composer, teacher and writer. He was on the forefront of the world music movement and has collaborated with George Harrison of the Beatles, composer Philip Glass and many other worldrenowned artists.

A bouncer was shot in the parking lot on March 17, and there were two other incidents during which shots were fired outside the business last October and December. Suspects have been arrested and charged in all three cases. City attorneys in May also wrote in a memo that there were allegations of at least two sexual assaults there since 2011.

For Lecompton historian Paul Bahnmaier, the group’s visit to Lecompton and Douglas County has special importance. “I think it reiterates what we say, that the Civil War starts in Douglas County,” he said. Bahnmaier, as well as others from the Lecompton Historical Society, spent the morning giving the teachers tours of Lecompton, as well as putting on a play called “Bleeding Kansas.” In the play, historic Kansas figures, including John Brown, argued about

Kansas awards Medicaid contracts to 3 companies By John Hanna Associated Press

TOPEKA — Kansas hired subsidiaries of three multibillion-dollar, outof-state health insurance companies Wednesday to manage its Medicaid program, and Gov. Sam Brownback’s administration said the contracts should produce even greater cost savings over the next five years than previously anticipated. The contracts are key to the conservative Republican governor’s efforts to overhaul the state’s $2.9 billion-a-year program, which provides health coverage to the poor, disabled and elderly. He and top administration officials have said the changes — moving all Medicaid participants into managed care — will provide better-coordinated care while controlling the state’s costs. “The current Medicaid program is financially unsustainable and provides fragmented services to our most vulnerable Kansans who deserve far better care,” said Dr. Robert Moser, the state’s secretary of health and environment. The state awarded the contracts to subsidiaries of Amerigroup Corp., based in Virginia Beach, Va.; Centene Corp., which has its headquarters in St. Louis, and United Healthcare, based in Minneapolis. Each contract takes effect Jan. 1, and the state has the option of extending it an additional two years. State officials said they include incentives to encourage the companies to pay claims quickly, improve the coordination of care and create inno-

The two- and threehour waits are simply a product of the summer rush, said Jeannine Koranda, Kansas Department of Revenue spokeswoman. “This time of year is typically the busiest,” she said. “We’re just moving thousands through this time of year.” Part of that rush has to do with students on sum-

Also, the contracts will allow the state to add coverage for preventive dental care for adults, heart and lung transplants and some weight loss surgeries. The three companies will offer competing plans so that Medicaid participants have choices. The overhauled program will be called KanCare. Brownback’s administration had projected that the state would save $853 million over the next five years because of the overhaul, based on expectations that the changes would lower the annual growth in its costs. The administration said Wednesday that savings over the next five years should now exceed $1 billion, saying the companies’ bids were better than anticipated. Tom Laing, executive director of InterHab, which represents groups providing services to the developmentally disabled, said none of the companies is a surprising choice because of its size. But he and other critics of the overhaul have questioned whether the state could achieve sigmer break flocking to the offices, Koranda said. But what about the $40 million computer upgrade that caused glitches in the system earlier this year? Koranda said that has nothing to do with the current long lines, as driver’s licenses applications and renewals still operate on the old system. Across the state, Koranda said, offices have recently reported wait times under an hour. “It just depends on the office,” she said.

nificant savings by having large, for-profit corporations manage Medicaid. Also, though Brownback’s administration began discussing an overhaul shortly after he took office in January 2011, some legislators and advocates think it is still moving too quickly. “We have the same concerns that we have always had,” Laing said. “It’s still a great set of unknowns.” The state still needs the federal government’s permission to go ahead with the overhaul because it provides a majority of the funds for Medicaid. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services would have to waive some of its Medicaid rules. Most of the nearly 385,000 Kansans receiving state medical assistance are covered by managed care through private contractors, but the Medicaid overhaul represents the first time the state has tried to include relatively expensive, long-term care for the disabled and the elderly, including those in nursing homes. Advocates for the developmentally disabled have been vocal skeptics of the overhaul. Their concerns led Brownback to agree to wait until 2014 to deal with long-term services for the developmentally disabled in the contracts, while permitting pilot programs. The unsuccessful bidders were subsidiaries Coventry Health Care, of Bethesda, Md., and WellCare Health Plans Inc., based in Tampa, Fla. Administration officials said the three successful companies submitted lower bids. At the local service station, the wait times have built camaraderie among the fellow frustrated drivers, Cataudella said. “It was like a family,” Cataudella said. “I feel like I should invite them over for Thanksgiving dinner.” She took the role of greeting the newbies — just starting their journey at the office — with a cheery warning: “Hey, welcome to hell.” — Reporter Shaun Hittle can be reached at 832-7173.

• Lawrence police called in a bomb squad from Leavenworth Wednesday afternoon to remove three World War II-era grenades that were found in the 4700 block of Carmel Court in west Lawrence. Sgt. Trent McKinley, a police spokesman, said a Lawrence-Douglas County Fire Medical supervisor notified police about finding the objects, two of which were inert and found not to be dangerous. McKinley said police called in the bomb squad to take possession of the items, which is routine practice when potential explosives are found. • Douglas Count prosecutors filed nine burglary and theft charges Wednesday against a 19-year-old Topeka man who is a suspect in several burglaries committed late Monday in southeast Lawrence. Prosecutors filed charges of aggravated burglary, four counts of theft and four counts of vehicle burglary against Alexander James McKinsey. A judge set McKinsey’s bond at $10,000. Lawrence police arrested McKinsey on Tuesday; a Lawrence officer traveled to Eudora after a Eudora police officer made a car stop regarding a shoplifting call at a Eudora convenience store early Tuesday, and police said they were able to connect McKinsey to several vehicle burglaries and one garage burglary reported hours earlier in the area of the 1600 block of Matthew Terrace in southeast Lawrence. Two other Topeka men, ages 18 and 21, were also arrested in the Eudora car stop, but Cheryl Wright, a Douglas County district attorney’s office spokeswoman, said those men were released from jail after prosecutors did not file

charges against them on Wednesday. • Two Topeka men, both 43, were arrested Tuesday afternoon after they were stopped near U.S. Highway 40 and Kansas Highway 10 west of Lawrence. Sgt. Trent McKinley, a Lawrence police spokesman, said officers connected the suspects to the reported burglary of an attached garage of a residence in the 3600 block of Hartford Court, in which two men removed several items including an air compressor and fishing equipment. McKinley said a nearby resident reported the incident to police and provided a description of the suspects to police. The men remained in jail Wednesday. Cheryl Wright, a Douglas County district attorney’s office spokeswoman, said if the men are formally charged, they will appear in court today. • A 19-year-old Haskell Indian Nations University student reported a 15-inch MacBook Pro worth $1,200 stolen from the 900 block of West 23rd Street. about 1 p.m. Monday, according to police reports.

FIRE CALL • A worker mowing Wednesday morning at Easy Living Mobile Home Park, 3323 Iowa, accidentally damaged part of a natural gas pipe above the ground on a vacant lot. Curt Floerchinger, a Black Hills Energy spokesman, said a crew eventually replaced the section of pipe, known as a riser, because park management said a trailer would be eventually placed on the lot. Lawrence-Douglas County Fire Medical workers responded at 11:40 a.m. Wednesday, and Division Chief Eve Tolefree, a Fire Medical spokeswoman, said firefighters were taking

readings of air quality levels in the area as they waited for Black Hills Energy workers to arrive. Floerchinger said that no one was injured and that there was no danger to anyone in the surrounding area. Crews had cleared the scene about 12:30 p.m. The Journal-World does not print accounts of all police reports filed. The newspaper generally reports: • Burglaries, only with a loss of $1,000 or more, unless there are unusual circumstances. To protect victims, we generally don’t identify them by name. • The names and circumstances of people arrested, only after they are charged. • Assaults and batteries, only if major injuries are reported. • Holdups and robberies.

HEALTH CARE IN KANSAS Number of uninsured: 350,000 state residents are uninsured, or almost 13 percent. Where the state stands: The Republicandominated state government has been hostile to the 2010 federal law and hasn’t moved to set up a health care exchange. Last year, GOP Gov. Sam Brownback’s administration returned a $31.5 million federal grant. What happens now: If the entire law is upheld,


Republican hostility against the 2010 law championed by President Barack Obama prevented the state from establishing its own exchange, which would help consumers find health insurance starting in 2014. Last year, Brownback returned a $31.5 million federal grant to assist the state with the computer infrastructure for an exchange. If the requirement for exchanges stands, states face a Nov. 16 deadline to submit plans to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. The choices for Kansas would be seeking a partnership with the federal gov- Colyer ernment or having the federal government run the exchange, said Linda Sheppard, the Insurance Department’s project manager for the health overhaul. “I do not believe we’d be able to do a state-level exchange,” said Sheppard, also director of the department’s accident and health division. Some industry officials worry about having a federally run exchange for Kansas, fearing that its rules could be too burdensome and that some requirements could cut independent agents out of the exchange completely. Kerri Spielman, executive director of the Kansas Association of Insurance Agents, still holds out hope that legislators could work on an exchange next year. “There are just too many people ready to move and act,” she said. “We don’t need to reinvent the wheel. We just need to have something that fits Kansas.” Republican legislators defend their lack of action, saying it made no sense to work on an exchange with so much uncertainty surrounding the federal law. And Lt. Gov. Jeff Colyer, a surgeon and former state senator, said Kansas should “determine the state’s needs and priorities and then enact our own reforms,” without being more specific. But House Insurance Committee Chairman Clark Shultz, a Lindsborg Republican acknowl-

Kansas won’t be in a position to set up an exchange in time, according to the state Insurance Department. If that part of the law survives, Brownback’s administration would have to decide whether to try to partner with the federal government on running the exchange. If the entire law is struck down, Brownback and other officials are likely to celebrate without taking further action. edged, “If it stands, we’re definitely running into a time deadline here — a crunch.” Kansas has about 350,000 residents who don’t have health insurance coverage, or 12.7 percent of the state’s population, according to U.S. Census Bureau figures. About 53,000 are children. Insurance Commissioner Sandy Praeger, a Republican, had planned to work on an exchange, but the Kansas GOP made the 2010 elections largely a referendum on Obama and tapped into the tea party movement’s frustrations. Republicans swept all statewide and congressional offices for the first time since 1964 and added to their legislative majorities, and many new lawmakers are conservatives. “They think they are going to be vindicated,” said state Democratic Chairwoman Joan Wagnon, a former Kansas House member. “They’ve put all of their eggs in that basket.” Brownback was a U.S. senator and an ardent opponent of the health care overhaul before he became governor in January 2011. His office was not saying before the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling how it might respond to various possibilities. Last year, Brownback not only returned the federal grant but also signed a “health care freedom” bill into law. The law says Kansas residents have the right to refuse to buy health insurance, adding that they can’t be fined or forced to pay other penalties for refusing. The law takes aim at a provision in the federal health care overhaul requiring most Americans to purchase health insurance, starting in 2014, and imposing tax penalties if they don’t. Even some GOP legislators doubted the state law could block the mandate in Kansas, but supporters saw it at least as a powerful statement. Brownback’s administration also has criticized a provision of the federal health care overhaul that expands the Medicaid program, so that states cover childless adults. Republicans are skeptical that the federal government will keep its promises to finance the expansion, and state officials estimate it would add as many as 130,000 people to the state’s Medicaid program.

Ruling to end campaign mystery WASHINGTON — Barely four months before the nation votes, one of the biggest factors in the fight for the White House still is a mystery. That will change today. The Supreme Court’s expected ruling on Obama President Barack Obama’s sweeping federal health care law will shape the contours of the presidential campaign through the summer and fall. Both Obama and Republican rival Mitt Romney are primed to use the ruling — whatever it is — for political gain. Obama expresses confidence the court will uphold his signature legislative initiative. But he won’t be shocked if a conservative majority overturns the haul, but it might not last long even if he’s re-elected. The nation still faces huge problems with health care costs, requiring major changes to Medicare that neither party has explained squarely to voters. Some backers of Obama’s

most controversial provision, those familiar with his thinking say. Romney aides say the Republican candidate will get a political boost if the court strikes down the measure. But they don’t want celebrations Romney that could alienate voters who could lose health care benefits through the decision. Neither candidate has any direct influence over the decision. The ruling is expected to be followed almost immediately by a barrage of advertisements and fundraising appeals from Democrats and Republicans, with both sides trying to cast the decision in the most advantageous light for its candidate. law acknowledge it was only a first installment: Get most people covered, then deal with the harder problem of costs. Q: On the other hand, what if the court strikes down the entire law?

A: Many people would applaud, polls suggest. Taking down the law would kill a costly new federal entitlement before it has a chance to take root and develop a clamoring constituency. But that still would leave the problems of high costs, waste and millions of uninsured people. Some Republicans in Congress already are talking about passing anew the more popular pieces of the law if it’s thrown out. But the major GOP alternatives to Obama’s law would not cover nearly as many uninsured, and it’s unclear how much of a dent they would make in costs. Some liberals say Medicare-for-all, or government-run health insurance, will emerge as the only viable answer if Obama’s public-private approach fails.

Q: What happens if the court strikes down the requirement that everyone must have insurance, but leaves the rest of the Affordable Care Act in place? A: People would have no obligation to carry insurance, but insurers would remain bound by the law to accept applicants regardless of medical condition and limit what they

Syria violence escalates as U.S. seeks turning point BEIRUT — Gunmen attacked a pro-government TV station Wednesday near the Syrian capital, killing seven employees in the latest barrage of violence as world powers prepared for a highlevel meeting that the U.S. hopes will be a turning point in the crisis. Invitations to Saturday’s gathering in Geneva were sent by special envoy Kofi Annan to the five permanent members of the U.N. Security Council — including Syrian allies Russia and China — but not to major regional players Iran and Saudi Arabia. The absence of those two countries, as well as the lack of any appetite for international military intervention, could make it difficult for the group to find the leverage to end the bloodshed in Syria. An effort by Annan to broker a peace plan failed earlier this year. Diplomatic hopes have rested on Russia — Syria’s most important ally and protector — agreeing on a transition plan that would end the Assad family dynasty, which has ruled Syria for more than four decades. But Moscow has rejected efforts by outside forces to end the conflict or any plan to force regime change in Damascus. The United Nations said Wednesday that the conflict, which began in

March 2011 as part of the Arab Spring that swept aside entrenched leaders across the region, is descending into sectarian warfare. President Bashar Assad has so far appeared largely impervious to world pressure and he has warned the internaAssad tional community from meddling in the crisis, which has seen a sharp escalation in violence in recent months. He said this week that his country is in “a genuine state of war,” an increasingly common refrain from the Syrian leader. Assad denies there is any popular will behind the uprising, which is in its 16th month, saying terrorists are driving a foreign conspiracy to destroy the country. Activists say more than 14,000 people have been killed in the violence. An Associated Press photographer said the attack on the Al-Ikhbariya TV station in the town of Drousha, about 14 miles south of the capital Damascus, left bloodstains on the ground and bullet holes in the walls. The attack heavily damaged five portable buildings used for offices and studios. Al-Ikhbariya is privately owned but strongly supports the regime.

THE WALDO CANYON FIRE BURNS AN ENTIRE NEIGHBORHOOD Tuesday near the foothills of Colorado Springs, Colo. Colorado has endured nearly a week of 100-plus-degree days and low humidity, sapping moisture from timber and grass, creating a devastating formula for volatile wildfires across the state and punishing conditions for firefighters. AT LEFT, a plume of smoke rises Wednesday behind homes on the Waldo Canyon wildfire west of Colorado Springs, Colo. AT TOP, Susan Custer wears a mask as she checks on her sister’s home from the corner of Garden of Gods Road and Centennial Boulevard as the Waldo Canyon fire burns Wednesday. The wildfire doubled in size overnight to about 24 square miles and has so far forced mandatory evacuations for more than 32,000 residents. Authorities say it remains too dangerous for them to fully assess the damage from a destructive wildfire threatening Colorado’s second-largest city. The White House said President Barack Obama will tour the firestricken area Friday and thank firefighters battling some of the worst fires to hit the American West in decades. Crews also were battling a deadly and destructive wildfire in northern Colorado and another that flared Tuesday night near Boulder.

charge their oldest and sickest customers. Studies suggest premiums in the individual health insurance market would jump by 10 percent to 30 percent. Experts debate whether or not that would trigger the collapse of the market for individuals and small businesses, or just make coverage even harder to afford than it is now. In any event, there would be risks to the health care system. Fewer people would sign up for coverage. Unless there’s a political deal to fix it, the complicated legislation would get more difficult to carry out. Congressional Republicans say they will keep pushing for repeal. Without the mandate, millions of uninsured lowincome people still would get coverage through the law’s Medicaid expansion. The problem would be the 10 million to 15 million middle class people expected to gain private insurance under the law. They would be eligible for federal subsidies, but premiums would get more expensive. Taxes, Medicare cuts and penalties on employers not offering coverage would stay in place.

Health and education officials, anti-smoking groups and a generation of students who grew up smoke-free are increasingly united on the issue, says Bronson Frick, associate director of Americans for Nonsmokers’ Rights. “There are many reasons why a college or university may choose to pursue this type of policy, whether secondhand smoke, dorm fires, or other issues,” he says. “They are also questioning what the role of tobacco is in this academic setting, where we’re supposed to be standing for truth and training the next generation of leaders.” According to data kept by the nonsmokers group, campus tobacco bans have risen from virtually zero a decade ago to 711 today. That includes both four-year and two-year institutions, both public and private.

Over 1,000 U.S. heat records fall in week By Janet McConnaughey, Roxana Hegeman and Seth Borenstein Associated Press

Feeling hot? It’s not a mirage. Across the United States, hundreds of heat records have fallen in the past week. From the wildfire-consumed Rocky Mountains to the bacon-fried sidewalks of Oklahoma, the temperatures are creating consequences ranging from catastrophic to comical. In the past week, 1,011 records have been broken around the country, including 251 new daily high temperature records on Tuesday. Those numbers might seem big, but they’re hard to put into context — the National Climatic Data Center has only been tracking the daily numbers broken for a little more than a year, said Derek Arndt, head of climate monitoring at the center. Still, it’s impressive, given that records usually aren’t broken until the scorching months of July and August. “Any time you’re breaking all-time records in midto late-June, that’s a healthy heat wave,” Arndt said. If forecasts hold, more records could fall in the coming days in the central and western parts of the country, places accustomed to

Across the country, more than 1,000 heat records have been broken in the past week. sweating out the summer. The current U.S. heat wave “is bad now by our current definition of bad,” said University of Victoria climate scientist Andrew Weaver, but “our definition of bad changes. What we see now will be far more common in the years ahead.” No matter where you are, the objective is the same: stay cool.

Praying for rain On the treeless, windswept Kansas prairie, the searing mix of sun and triple-digit heat is a recipe for agricultural disaster. Some residents have taken to praying for rain and cooler temperatures

in this sparsely populated western part of the state. Menlo farmer Brian Baalman can testify to that. “Everybody is just sick of it. They just wish we would get a good rain,” he said. “It has become a point to pray for it at church on Sunday, for sure.” Temperatures in the area have hovered around 111 degrees or higher for the past four days, and nine cities in western Kansas broke records on Tuesday. Only in the earliest morning hours do hardy farmers dart out to ensure their livestock’s water troughs are filled and their irrigation wells are quenching parched crops. They quick-

ly return to cooler locales. Much of the fortunes in the Menlo area are tied to corn crops, whose yields contribute not only to foodstuffs but also to ethanol-blended gasoline. But day after unyielding day of blazing sun and high heat have baked the top six inches of soil, and plant roots can break through to the moister soil below. “It is getting to look ugly, the longer this keeps going on without a drink,” Baalman said.

Frying bacon in the sun Aaron Anderson and his 4-year-old son bypassed the proverbial cooked egg on Tuesday, opting instead to fry bacon on their driveway in Coweta, Okla. Anderson’s thermometer read 105 degrees around 4:30 p.m., about the same time his son, Aaron Paul, said it felt like his feet were cooking. Sky-high temperatures aren’t unusual in this part of the country, but it is warm enough this week that five records were set on Tuesday. Anderson preheated the skillet for 10 minutes in the sun, and it took an hour for the meat to fully cook. And, yes, they ate it. “My only regret is it was turkey bacon instead of pork bacon, but that’s all we had,” Anderson said.



The Food and Drug Administration has approved Arena Pharmaceutical’s antiobesity pill Belviq, the first new prescription drug for long-term weight loss to enter the U.S. market in over a decade. Despite only achieving modest weight loss in clinical studies, the drug appeared safe enough to win the FDA’s endorsement, amid calls from doctors for new weight-loss treatments. The agency cleared the pill Wednesday for adults who are obese or are overweight with at least one medical complication, such as diabetes or high cholesterol.

Google announces small tablet, challenges Amazon’s Kindle Fire By Michael Liedtke and Peter Svensson Associated Press

SAN FRANCISCO — Google will sell a small tablet computer bearing its brand in a challenge to Amazon’s Kindle Fire. The Nexus 7 is designed specifically for Google Play, the online store that sells movies, music, books, apps and other content — the things Inc. also sells for its tablet computer. Google’s announcement that it’s putting its brand on a tablet comes a week after Microsoft Corp. said the same thing. Both moves risk alienating Google’s and Microsoft’s hardware partners. Those companies, in turn, could be less inclined to work closely with Google and Microsoft. The Nexus 7 and the Kindle Fire have screens that measure 7 inches diagonal-


ly, smaller than the nearly 10 inches on Apple Inc.’s popular iPad. The Nexus 7 will also be light — at about 0.75 pound, compared with the Kindle Fire’s 0.9 pound. The iPad weighs 1.44 pounds. The Nexus 7 will ship in mid-July starting at $199 — the same price as the Kindle Fire. By contrast, iPads start at $499. Customers can start ordering it through Google on Wednesday, initially in the U.S., Canada and Australia. Google’s price is aggressively low, considering that the Nexus 7 has more features than the Kindle, including a front-facing camera. The Kindle is believed to be roughly break even at $199. Samsung Electronics Co. sells a tablet similar to Google’s for $250. Andrew Rassweiler, an analyst with IHS iSuppli, said he suspects Google will be subsidizing the tablet to sell it starting at $199.

Google has previously put its own brand on a flagship line of “Nexus” smartphones. But that market is more mature than the tablet market, and there was less risk of Google alienating partners, particularly since it didn’t price the phones lower than the norm. Much like the Nexus phones, the Nexus 7 tablet will be a showcase for a new version of Google Inc.’s Android operating system, in this case one called “Jelly Bean.” Although the tablet carries the Google brand, the machine will be made by AsusTek Computer Inc. Google recently expanded into the device-making business with its $12.5 billion purchase of Motorola Mobility, but the company has stressed that it intends to continue to rely on Asus and other manufacturers that have embraced Android.

Lawmakers reach compromise on roads, student loans By Alan Fram and Joan Lowy Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Facing weekend deadlines for action, congressional leaders have agreed to deals overhauling the nation’s transportation programs without a Republican provision forcing approval of the proposed Keystone XL oil pipeline, and avoiding a doubling of interest rates for new student loans, congressional officials said Wednesday. The agreements underscored the pressures both parties face to avoid angering voters and facing embarrassing headlines in the run-up to this November’s presidential and congressional elections. Letting roadbuilding programs grind to a halt during an economic downturn would be a blow to the image of lawmakers, while Democrats and Republicans alike seemed eager to avoid enraging millions of students and their parents by boosting the costs of college loans. In contrast, enactment of the transportation measure would create or save 3 million jobs, said Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-Calif., chief sponsor of the Senate version of the bill. And the student loan measure would spare an estimated 7.4 million students who get subsidized Stafford loans beginning July 1 — this Sunday — from facing $1,000 in higher interest costs over the lives of their loans, which typically take over a decade to repay. Congressional leaders were planning to combine the highway and student loan measures into a single bill to reduce potential

As the price for the highway agreement, lawmakers said Republicans dropped a House-approved provision requiring the government to approve the proposed Keystone pipeline. procedural obstacles and hoped for final approval this week. Lawmakers would then leave Washington for a July 4 recess. The two-year highway bill would prevent the government’s authority to spend money on highways, bridges and transit systems from lapsing on Saturday, along with its ability to collect gasoline and diesel taxes. With both parties checkmating each other’s top priorities this campaign season, Democrats and Republicans say the highway measure will be Congress’ top job-creation initiative until the November elections. As the price for the highway agreement, lawmakers said Republicans dropped a House-approved provision requiring the government to approve the proposed Keystone pipeline, which is to move oil from western Canada to Texas’ Gulf Coast. Pipeline approval — which prompted a veto threat from President Barack Obama — has been a top goal this election year for the GOP, which has pitted its claims that it would create jobs against environmental worries that it could accelerate global warming and endanger Midwestern water supplies.

Contempt issue may fizzle after vote By Connie Cass Associated Press

WASHINGTON — A House vote finding Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress today would create election-year fireworks but maybe not much Holder lasting sizzle. Federal judges who’ve been called into similar disputes often sound like frazzled moms, in essence telling Congress and the president, “I don’t care who started it, you two end it.” Time appears to be limited for the House to pursue a criminal contempt case against Holder or a civil case to compel President Barack Obama’s administration to turn over subpoenaed documents. A contempt citation against Holder presumably would expire when the current Congress ends in January. If the courts do end up deciding the case, however, they could shed some light on a foggy patch of consti-

tutional law: What happens when Congress demands that a president turn over documents he says should be kept secret? Particularly, once the president invokes executive privilege to deny Congress documents it has subpoenaed. Beginning with George Washington, presidents have asserted authority to withhold executive branch records from Congress. The bickering over the proper reach and limits on this authority has never stopped. This time the argument is whether Obama is within his rights to order Holder to withhold some Justice Department documents subpoenaed by a House committee. The lawmakers are investigating a flawed antismuggling investigation in Arizona known as Operation Fast and Furious that tried to track guns — suspected of being purchased illicitly in the U.S. — all the way to gun-smuggling kingpins, who long have eluded prosecution. Agents lost track of about 1,400 guns and some have turned up at crime scenes in Mexico and the U.S.

County caution The Douglas County Commission is being appropriately cautious about approving fairgrounds renovations.


ouglas County commissioners are taking a businesslike approach to a request for more than $3 million in renovations at the Douglas County Fairgrounds. Although commissioners said at last week’s meeting that they were enthusiastic about the proposal, they warned that it would be difficult to find funding for the project in the coming year’s budget. That’s a realistic appraisal. The proposal for the fairgrounds included razing two buildings and replacing them with an open pavilion, park area and a new meeting hall. The total cost of the project was estimated at $3.3 million to $3.6 million. Commissioner Nancy Thellman said those who spoke in favor of the project “were very persuasive,” and Commissioner Jim Flory correctly described the improvements as “an investment in the community.” However, after Commissioner Mike Gaughan raised questions about ongoing costs to operate and maintain the proposed new facilities, commissioners decided they needed more information to determine whether this was an investment the county could afford to make at this time. The Douglas County Fairgrounds is an active property all year round and provides venues for many local and regional events — auto swap meets, horse shows, cat shows, antique sales and more — that bring people and dollars to Lawrence. It is an important community asset that warrants the county’s enthusiastic support and financial investment. However, as all local units of government should be doing now, the county needs to look at its overall needs and consider what could be a drastic shift in state tax revenues. If the state’s new income tax structure fails to deliver the kind of revenue its supporters predict, funding for many government functions may have to come from other sources. The scheduled reduction in the state sales tax a year from now may not happen; local property taxes may have to pick up a bigger portion of funding for schools and other local government responsibilities. Fairground improvements are a good investment, but this may not be the year to take them on. It only makes sense for the city, county and school board to take a measured approach to any new commitments of tax money, at least for the coming year.

Helping Romney with NAACP speech Dear Mitt Romney: I was pleased to hear that you have accepted an invitation to speak in July before the 103rd convention of the NAACP in Houston. In anticipation of that event, I have taken the liberty of writing a speech for you. It’s only a beginning, space limitations being what they are, but it should get you off to a solid start and you can take it from there. So, here it is: “Ladies and gentlemen, thank you for inviting me to speak before the nation’s oldest and most storied civil rights organization. I propose not to waste this moment by filling it with the usual vague promises and platitudes. Instead, I want to try something politicians almost never try. It’s called straight talk. “I am not unmindful that, because of my party affiliation, many of you view my presence here with a certain amount of skepticism. Nor am I unaware that the Republican Party has often seemed to go out of its way to earn that skepticism. The examples abound. “There was, for instance, the time in 1996 when Sen. Bob Dole refused an invitation to speak before you, saying

Leonard Pitts Jr.

your then-leader was trying to set him up. In 1994, when Jeb Bush was running for governor of Florida, someone asked what he would do for black voters if elected. ‘Probably nothing,’ he said. “Nor do we have to go back to the ‘90s to find justification for your skepticism. In this very day, we see members of my party seeking to gut the Voting Rights Act and questioning the legality of the Civil Rights Act. We have seen them accused and even convicted of voter suppression. And yes, we have seen my party provide a haven for those whose animus against the president is motivated not by honest political differences, but by simple, malignant bigotry. “So yes, I am aware that my party has done much to earn your skepticism. It is my hope that today we can

begin the process of earning your trust. To that end, I propose a complete reset of the relationship between African-American voters and the Republican Party. Today, I serve notice that we intend to do something we have not done for more than 50 years: compete for your votes. “For far too long, the Democratic Party has been allowed to depend on your support while offering you little in return. For far too long, it has gotten away with taking you for granted, commanded your loyalty based on ghostly memories of things the Kennedy brothers and Lyndon Johnson did on your behalf in the 1960s. But the last of those men died 39 years ago and it is time African-American voters asked the Democrats a simple question: What have you done for me lately? “It is not as if the Civil Rights Movement ended all your problems. To the contrary, African-Americans continue to be discriminated against in banking, housing and employment. You still have unequal access to quality education and health care. “And the justice system still betrays you. Under the

failed ‘War on Drugs,’ young men from your communities are incarcerated at rates that are a national scandal. In some states, they constitute up to 90 percent of those imprisoned for drug crimes, though they commit less than 15 percent of those crimes. “Yet, even with an AfricanAmerican man as its leader, the Democratic Party has failed to raise this unfinished business of the civil rights movement to the level of a national concern. That will change under the Romney administration. Under the Romney administration, we will have no higher priority than to ensure that ‘liberty and justice for all’ means exactly that. “We will use solid, conservative principles to achieve this goal, to attack the inequities that still hobble African-American people. But I promised you more than vague promises and platitudes and I meant it. Let’s get specific, then. “If I am elected, here is what I will do: — Leonard Pitts Jr. is a columnist for the Miami Herald.

Rosie Hurwitz was retiring officially this week from her post as YEARS director of the AGO Audio-Reader netIN 1987 work, a position she had held since 1974. When she joined AudioReader, the organization, which had been founded three years earlier, had two employees, five volunteers, a budget of $37,500, and an estimated 500 listeners in a 50-mile radius. The network had come a long way since then, with a budget of $200,000 and a staff of eight employees and 155 volunteers.

West can’t trust Egypt leaders Throughout America’s history, there have been people who denied threats from our enemies. During the Revolutionary War, significant numbers sided with the British monarchy. Enablers in politics, the media and even religion helped Communism remain in power for seven decades in the Soviet Union. German Nazis had their U.S. apologists. The presidential election in Egypt, won by the Muslim Brotherhood’s Mohammed Morsi in a race where threequarters of Egyptians voted for someone else, challenges contemporary deniers and enablers who refuse to acknowledge the threat advancing Islamism poses to Israel and the West. Enough Egyptians voted for Morsi to allow Islamists to achieve greater political power than at any time since the Brotherhood’s 1928 founding. Morsi mouths the words the West wants to hear (he was educated in America). He speaks of being president of “all Egyptians,” promising to honor all international agreements made by the Hosni Mubarek regime. A cleric, Safwat Higazi, introduced Morsi at a May 1 campaign rally and stated the Brotherhood’s objective: “Our capital shall be Jerusalem, Allah willing.” That seems to signal the real direction in which Morsi could take his country. It is certainly in line with Muslim Brotherhood thinking. After more than three years of pandering and apologizing to the Islamic world, the Obama administration has produced a tree bearing rotten fruit. The White House congratulated Morsi on his victory. What else could it do? It won’t admit error or acknowledge that the “Arab Spring” is starting to

resemble a Siberian winter. Iran continues its nuclear weapons program and threatens to wipe the “Zionist entity” off the map. Russian President Vladimir Putin visits Israel and urges Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu not to attack Iran, to which Russia has been providing nuclear technology. Should Egypt again become hostile to the Jewish state, Israel may be in greater peril than at any time in its modern history. Sixteen months ago, the Brotherhood declared disinterest in the Egyptian presidency, vowing not to run a candidate. Add that to the long list of lies and empty promises that numerous Arab and Islamic leaders have peddled to the West. Columnist Max Boot seemingly buys into the fantasies of the apologists, enablers and deniers. In a Commentary magazine article titled “Let the Brotherhood Rule in Egypt,”

Boot writes, “As long as a Brotherhood government must face voters in the future, popular sentiment will act as a check on its illiberal tendencies.” Many dictators have been elected once. “Regardless,” Boot added, “it is a tragedy that the will of the Egyptian people, who plainly long for Western-style democracy and not an Iranian-style theocracy or a sclerotic police state, is being thwarted.” Really? The Egyptian parliamentary election confirmed polling that indicates 60 percent of Egyptians favor complete adoption of Shariah law. Shariah law does not require that future elections be held. Those polls also show an overwhelming majority of Egyptians want a religious government, stoning as a form of punishment, and limits on women and Christians in office. The New York Times’ David Kirkpatrick is not fooled by false promises. In an April 23 story, Kirkpatrick wrote, “(Morsi) has argued for barring women and non-Muslims from Egypt’s presidency on the basis of (Shariah) law. He has called for a council of Muslim scholars to advise Parliament. He has a track record of inflammatory statements about Israel, calling its citizens ‘killers and vampires.’” The Muslim Brotherhood knows how Westerners think. They are playing us for fools. If we believe what has happened in Egypt and the upheavals in the rest of the Mideast will lead to democracy, human rights, equal rights for women and religious minorities, freedom of speech and press, then we are fools. These fanatics do not intend to stop with Israel. Their ultimate target is America, by elections and/or other means. — Cal Thomas is a columnist for Tribune Media Services.


In the second day of testimony in the Douglas County District YEARS Court today, a AGO motion to dismiss IN 1972 the injunction to close the Gaslight Tavern, 1241 Oread, was overruled by Judge Floyd Coffman. The state had been seeking to close the bar on the edge of the Kansas University campus as a “common nuisance.” Attorney George Melvin asked that the injunction be dismissed because the state had not presented evidence that “any unlawful act was carried on or allowed to be carried on” at the tavern.

Tom Keegan

Weis knew his stuff all too well with Irish The three captains — quarterback Dayne Crist, left tackle Tanner Hawkinson and pass-rusher Toben Opurum — also happen to rank among the most talented guys on the Kansas University football team, but it doesn’t always work that way. “One of my college roommates was a kid named Terry Eurick, and he was a back-up running back our senior year — and a captain,” KU coach Charlie Weis remembered. I distinctly remembered Eurick gracing the cover of Sports Illustrated, so I decided to fact-check Weis by phoning Eurick at his home in Michigan. “I backed up Jerome Havens and Vagas Ferguson,” Eurick confirmed. The two superstars each ran for 100 yards in Notre Dame’s national-title-clinching 1978 Cotton Bowl, a 38-10 triumph against Texas in a game Eurick carried the ball four times and scored two touchdowns. Eurick played for a Michigan high school, Saginaw Arthur Hill, that outscored its opponents, 433-0, his senior year. The unlikelihood of him making the cover of SI doesn’t compare to the shock value of what it took for Joe Montana, one of the top few NFL quarterbacks of all-time, to start at ND. “To give you an honest story because he was one of my boys since freshman year of college, did you know our senior year he was the third-string quarterback? Rusty Lisch was first, Gary Forystek was second, Joe Montana was third,” Weis said. “That’s true. Our fourth year together, he was thirdstring quarterback to start off the year.” In the third game, against Purdue, the speedy Lisch threw multiple interceptions and was pulled in favor of the strong-armed Forystek, who moved the team down the field and suffered a broken collarbone and other injuries. Lisch, Weis remembered, came back in, and threw another pick. That’s when Montana took the job and never gave it back. So how is it that Weis knew the football players well enough to call Montana “one of my boys”? “Sure, Charlie knew Joe,” Eurick said. “Charlie virtually knew all the guys, at least all the ones who lived in my hall. He played on the softball team senior year that won the championship. He was always playing basketball. He was always around the guys. He would go up to people and just talk to them. Charlie was never shy.” Never shy to express an opinion, either. “Oh, I was bad-mouthing the coaches left and right (for not playing Montana),” Weis said. “I was sitting there saying, ‘What are they thinking?’ Yeah, I was one of those cynics. Pretty good at it, too. So when they’re hammering me, that’s old news.” But don’t bother telling Weis that Corpus Christi pastor Father Mick Mulvany, an ND fan, wears some of his old gear, left behind in a box at the ND football offices and sent to him by an assistant coach. Weis doesn’t want to hear it. Notre Dame fired him, remember?

THOMAS ROBINSON, TOP, HUGS Tyshawn Taylor during Kansas’ game against South Florida on Dec. 3, 2011, in Allen Fieldhouse.

NEW YORK — Tuesday night, a little less than two days before the suits and smiles of the NBA Draft take the place of the more familiar high tops and highfives, former Kansas University standouts Thomas Robinson and Tyshawn Taylor met up for one more game of basketball. This one, unlike the previous 113 they played together as teammates at Kansas, was a one-on-one battle on the blacktop of New Jersey, and it came a stone’s throw from the neighborhood in which Taylor first began to dream his NBA dream. “It was cool,” said Robinson, who is expected to be selected in the top five of tonight’s NBA Draft in Newark, N.J. “We always talked when we were in school that he would come to my neighborhood and I’d come to his. We grew up in simi-

lar areas, so I felt comfortable. It wasn’t anything I’m not used to.” Except that it was. After catching up, checking out the court and admitting their nerves, something unusual occurred. “We were just on the court messing around and then I took my hat off and he took his hat off,” said Robinson, setting the scene. “Then we started shooting some more, and then I took my phone out, he took his phone out. Then I took my chain off, he took his chain off. And the next thing I knew we were out there playing against each other, sweating.” On paper, the game was a mismatch both ways. Robinson’s 6-foot-9, 245-pound frame and 7-foot-3-inch wingspan no doubt posed a problem for the 6-3, 185-pound Taylor, whose lightningquick first step and superior handles Please see ROBINSON, page 3B

Butler’s blast boosts Royals past Rays, 5-4 KANSAS CITY, MO. (AP) — On the hottest day this year in Kansas City, dehydration was starting to become a concern. Players were exhausted. Royals manager Ned Yost was starting to feel sorry for Tony Randazzo behind the plate, and he wasn’t even the umpire whose face had been bloodied in the game.

Billy Butler’s tiebreaking home run in the eighth was an especially welcome sight, leading the Royals to a 5-4 victory and three-game sweep of the Tampa Bay Rays. “It was really, really hot out there,” said Butler, who greeted reliever Burke Badenhop with his 15th home run. “It was over

100 degrees. Guys were starting to get dehydrated. It was not a good day to go extra innings.” Yost said trainers had IVs waiting in the locker room. “We were going to start losing guys,” Yost said. “We had some guys who were starting to cramp. Eric Hosmer’s elbow was starting to get a little stiff. The

umpire was about ready to fall out behind home plate. The heat out there was pretty oppressive. When Billy hit that ball, I was just hoping it was high enough.” Aaron Crow (1-1), the fifth Royals pitcher, was the winner after getting two outs in the Please see ROYALS, page 10B

Federer cruises at Wimbledon WIMBLEDON, ENGLAND — Roger Federer gave Prince Charles a bow, then gave Fabio Fognini a royal thumping. With the Prince of Wales visiting Wimbledon for the first time since 1970, Federer was at his best Wednesday and beat Fognini, 6-1, 6-3, 6-2. Federer, a six-time winner at the All England Club, won 37 of 41 points on his first serve and 21 of 23 points at the net against Fognini, an Italian ranked 68th. Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall sat in the first row of the Royal Box as Federer walked onto Centre Court for the day’s first match. He and Fognini stood side by side as they bowed awkwardly toward the royals, and Charles responded with a wave and grin. “They do brief you beforehand,� Federer said. “I guess you don’t do anything stupid. You behave. Obviously we were asked to bow, which is obviously no problem to do. We’re thrilled for the tennis family that they came to watch Wimbledon today.� Shortly after Federer’s victory, rain interrupted play, and the retractable roof on Centre Court was closed for the first time in the tournament. Defending champion Novak Djokovic won under the lights, beating American Ryan Harrison, 6-4, 6-4, 6-4, in the final match of the day, which finished at 9:52 p.m. “We went the distance,� Djokovic said. “I’m honored to be in a position to play on the most recognized Centre Court worldwide in our sport. Every time I step on Centre Court, you can feel the different energy from any other tournament.� Former No. 1 Caroline Wozniacki lost under the roof to Tamira Paszek, who saved two match points in the second set and won, 5-7, 7-6 (4), 6-4. Other Grand Slam champions advancing included Kim Clijsters and Andy Roddick, while 2011 U.S. Open champion Samantha Stosur and 2011 French Open champion Li Na lost. More than a dozen matches on outside courts were postponed until today.


Bucks acquire center Dalembert MILWAUKEE — The Milwaukee Bucks have acquired veteran center Samuel Dalembert from the Houston Rockets in a trade the day before the NBA draft. The Bucks said Wednesday they got Dalembert, the 14th overall pick in Thursday’s draft, a future second round pick and cash considerations from Houston in exchange for forwards Jon Brockman and Jon Leuer, guard Shaun Livingston and the 12th pick. Dalembert has career averages of eight points, 8.2 rebounds and 1.9 blocked shots per game. Center is a need for the Bucks, who traded away Andrew Bogut last season.


Yanks put Sabathia on 15-day DL NEW YORK — The Yankees have placed ace CC Sabathia on the 15-day disabled list because he has a strained groin. General manager Brian Cashman said the left-hander felt a twinge on Sunday night in the fourth inning of a game against the New York Mets. However, he didn’t tell anyone about it until after he could still feel discomfort following his bullpen session on Tuesday. Manager Joe Girardi says the Yankees expect to have Sabathia, who is 9-3 with a 3.45 ERA, back shortly after the All-Star break.

Phelps claims victory in 200 freestyle OMAHA, NEB. (AP) — Round 2 goes to Michael Phelps. Getting back at rival Ryan Lochte, Phelps stretched out to win a thrilling 200-meter freestyle at the U.S. Olympic trials Wednesday night, setting up a duel in London that just gets more tantalizing with every race between the world’s two greatest swimmers. Lochte won the 400 individual medley on the opening

night of the games, his third straight major victory over the winningest Olympian ever. But Phelps isn’t going down that easily. He got off to a stronger start than usual, leading at the first turn and holding the advantage through all four laps. Both swimmers got a big boost off the final turn, cutting through the water like missiles, and Lochte went

stroke for stroke down the stretch. But Phelps stretched out his right arm at the wall, touching just ahead of Lochte. The winning time was 1 minute, 45.70 seconds — fivehundredths of a second ahead of Lochte. “Obviously it’s been a while, so it felt better� to beat Lochte, Phelps said. “But there’s still some things I can improve on.�

THE 2012 LAWRENCE JOURNAL-WORLD ALL-AREA BASEBALL TEAM INCLUDES, from left, Troy Willoughby, Lawrence High; CJ Roush, Lawrence High; Seth Steward, Oskaloosa; Sam Hearnen, Free State; player of the year Garrett Cleavinger, Lawrence High; coach of the year Shawn Herrmann, Ottawa; Tyler Moore, Mill Valley; Connor Goedert, Ottawa; Jacob Spring, Mill Valley; and Kaden Shaffer, Ottawa. Player of the year: Garrett Cleavinger, Lawrence A University of Oregon signee, the left-handed ace played a critical role in the Lions’ 14-9 season that wrapped up with a march to the Class 6A state tournament. The first-team all-state pitcher threw a complete-game shutout for LHS in a regional playoff win and put together a masterful two-hit performance at state in a 1-0 loss against Blue Valley West ace Collin Wiles, who was drafted by the Texas Rangers. Coach of the year: Shawn Herrmann, Ottawa The Cyclones’ 21-5 record set a new program standard for most wins in a season. Herrmann’s OHS squad went 11-1 in Frontier League play to gain

its second straight league crown before qualifying for the 4A state tournament and taking third place, with victories over Jeff West and Mulvane.

Free State’s go-to arm out of the bullpen. Hearnen finished the year with a 4-3 record and one save, earning second-team All-Sunflower League honors. He had a 3.18 ERA in 34 innings, with First team 20 strikeouts and allowed Q Garrett Cleavinger, 26 hits and 15 walks. Q Jared Ireland, Lawrence — The senior Lions southpaw pitched 55 Eudora — The Cardinals’ innings, striking out 74 bat- senior first baseman was a safe bet to ters, allowing 30 hits and reach base. 15 earned runs. Cleavinger Ireland compiled a 1.91 ERA, a 1.20 went 36WHIP and a 6-4 record for for-70 on the season.

He fin- Ireland erage. He ished the year with 32 RBIs, produced 10 doubles, two triples, nine doubles, three triples, seven home runs and a .649 three home runs and drove on-base percentage. in 43 runs for Eudora in his Q Sam Hearnen, Free final season.

likely made him a nightmare for Robinson, as well. On this night, Taylor’s quicks prevailed. “Ty won,” Robinson said. “He had his whole neighborhood around, though. It was the homecourt advantage.” In many ways the impromptu one-on-one showdown was exactly what these guys needed during one of the more hectic, yet exciting, times of their lives. From the time they were young until just a couple of months ago, both almost always had been in control when it came to basketball. But all of the glitz, glamour and uncertainty that comes with the NBA Draft puts control out of their reach. Their stats are in, careers are closed and individual workouts finished. Now all they can do is wait. “It’s gonna be a very, very long process,” Robinson admitted. “I probably won’t be there long. Who knows, though. I’m sure I’m still gonna be nervous.” In some ways, Robinson is envious of Taylor’s position. Instead of sitting in the green room with the lights, cameras and cheers surrounding him, Taylor, who could be picked anywhere from late in the first round to sometime in the middle of the second, will hear his name called via television, surrounded by as many friends and family members as he can

FORMER KANSAS UNIVERSITY FORWARD THOMAS ROBINSON huddles with a group of young players following the NBA Cares NBA Fit event Wednesday in New York. cram into a New Jersey living room. “It’s more comfortable for him because it’s here, local, where his family is originally from,” Taylor’s mother, Jeanell Taylor, said. “It gives him an opportunity to be with his entire family and I think that means a lot to him. He’s actually more nervous than anything. Going to (Madison Square) Garden and playing Kentucky and things like that are totally different from him having to sit there and wait for the teams to call his name.” Added Robinson: “He gets the real, 100 percent feeling of how it’s supposed to go. And I honestly think that’s one of the best ways to go through it. Once you get your name called, it’s probably a better feeling or a relief because you really don’t know.” The friends and fam-

ily members here provide comfort for both Robinson and Taylor. KU coach Bill Self and former KU assistant Danny Manning could not make the trip. But Robinson will be joined at the table in the green room by his nineyear-old sister, Jayla, and her father, his best friend from childhood, his AAU coach and Angel Morris, the mother of Markieff and Marcus Morris who has filled a huge void in Robinson’s life since the day his mother, Lisa, passed away in early 2011. The Morris twins also made the trip to town and will be at the draft, as well. However, beyond the support of their families, the one thing that makes these two former Jayhawks feel so comfortable with so much on the line is the location where it all will take place. “Just to be anywhere in the tri-state area is great,”

senior catcher led the team with a .471 batting average as MVHS earned a berth in the 5A state tournament. Moore delivered 33 hits, nine doubles and 21 RBIs. Mill Valley opponents only stole three bases against the strong-armed catcher all season. Q CJ Roush, Lawrence — Known best for covering ground in the outfield and racing around the base paths, the LHS senior center fielder earned first-team all-state honors. Roush finished his last year with the Lions hitting .422, with six doubles, three triples, a home run, 14 RBIs and 13 runs scored. Q Kaden Shaffer, Ottawa — A junior infielder and relief pitcher for the Cyclones, Shaffer set a new program record with 38 RBIs while batting .391, with 36 hits, five doubles, two home runs and eight stolen

bases. Shaffer had a 3-0 record as a reliever, with a 1.08 ERA in 13.1 innings of work. Q Jacob Spring, Mill Valley — The senior cleanup hitter led the Jaguars (19-4) with a .917 slugging percentage and 29 RBIs, while batting .375 with nine doubles, four triples and three home runs. The sure-armed outfielder threw out three runners at home this year, and became the first MVHS player to earn first-team all-state honors. Q Seth Steward, Oskaloosa — The junior Bears pitcher and first baseman proved to be a dual threat, putting together a great season for OHS. On the mound, Steward went 7-2 with a 2.45 ERA and 54 strikeouts. Offensively, he batted .474, with 27 hits, 31 RBIs and a pair of home runs.

said Robinson, a native of Washington D.C. “You’re not from here, so you’re not a hometown hero, but when you’re from the East Coast and you go to a school like Kansas, it’s kind of like everybody out here gets behind you. When I come back to New York or Jersey or places in the northeast, I feel a lot of love, and it’s definitely good to be back.” It’s not just the future NBA players who get a kick out of it. Taylor’s high school coach, Bob Hurley, said his former point guard’s return to the area was the perfect way to close out an amazing journey. “For him to be coming back to Jersey to be drafted into the NBA is incredible,” said the legendary St. Anthony High coach. “We’ve been talking a lot about it. The guys he grew up with are all excited. The kids we have at St. Anthony’s now are all excited, and the coaches are all excited. It’s just absolutely great.” Hurley won’t be with Taylor tonight, but he will be watching. “I’ll be running home and jumping on the couch and sitting there holding my breath until it happens,” Hurley said. “We’re proud of him anyway, but it’ll be an even bigger moment because we know what the journey’s been like. With each kid, it’s different each time. And this one is just an incredibly special story for us. We’re so excited for him.” As for Robinson, he said he believed the team that picked Taylor would be

getting a steal and added that he would not begin his celebration until his close friend and former teammate can join him. “I told Ty I’m not making any moves until his name is called,” Robinson said. Tonight’s draft begins at 6 p.m. and will take place at the Prudential Center for the second year in a row because of construction at Madison Square Garden.

What about Jayla? Throughout the past year, Robinson has talked a lot about his sister and how all of the work he put in was for her future. On Wednesday, Robinson was asked how Jayla was handling the overwhelming scene that is the NBA Draft and he answered with one of his trademark smiles. “I know what it’s like,” he said. “It’s great. Because right now she’s on 5th Avenue shopping. So she’s fine. And that feels great. That’s why I worked for it. So for her to see it actually happen will be a great feeling.” Like Mike If Robinson goes to Charlotte at No. 2 like some are predicting, he immediately will be employed by the man widely regarded as the greatest basketball player of alltime, Bobcats owner Michael Jordan. When asked if he would be awestruck by the thought of playing for Jordan, Robinson made one key point. “You’re playing for Mike, but you’re not playing with him,” Robinson

Q Troy Willoughby, Lawrence — In his final season with the Lions, the senior made the 6A all-state second team as a shortstop and was an important part of the LHS pitching staff. At the plate, Willoughby hit .361, with four doubles, 14 RBIs and 13 runs scored. As a pitcher, he went 2-1 in 27 innings of work, allowing just five walks and seven runs, while striking out 28 and accumulating a 1.81 ERA. Honorable mention Aaron Ackerman, Santa Fe Trail; Hunter Burkhart, Baldwin; Tyler Cawley, Baldwin; Taylor Graf, Ottawa; Shane Levy, Tonganoxie; Zach Linquist, Perry-Lecompton; Greg Mason, Mill Valley; JD Prochaska, Free State; Bryce Stottlemire, Oskaloosa; Blade Wright, Santa Fe Trail.

said. “So it’s still up to me to get out there and work.”

T-Rob hearts Kansas Without hesitation, Robinson needed just one word to describe what his three years in Lawrence meant to him. “Everything,” he said. “The more I’m away from Kansas, the more I miss it, and I start to remember things that I forgot I even did. Being at KU was special for me. I’ll definitely be back.” What to wear? One of the most scrutinized elements of the NBA Draft is the fashion sense — sometimes good, sometimes bad — that the players demonstrate. Although Robinson did not divulge what he would be wearing when his name was called by NBA commissioner David Stern tonight, he did clarify one thing. “I’ve got an idea,” he said of his draft-night outfit. “Nothing too crazy. I don’t want them to talk about me.” Speaking of Stern, the moment after Robinson hears his name called is something he has been looking forward to since the Jayhawks topped Baylor, 92-74, on Jan. 16 at Allen Fieldhouse. That was the night Robinson became convinced he would be one of the top picks in this year’s draft. “I feel great,” Robinson said. “And I’m ready. I’ve worked for mine and I’ve been able to put all of the adversity behind me. Once I shake David Stern’s hand, I’ll feel like I did something.”

Dear Annie: My husband and I are in our late 40s and have been married 30 years. (We married young.) ‘‘Eugene” has started looking at a lot of porn and seems to have a compulsion about it. We have enjoyed adult videos as a couple and still do, but Eugene now watches porn on the computer by himself. I feel betrayed, and it damages my trust. When I told him I don’t like that he looks at Internet porn so often, he became hostile and defensive. He angrily told me that “after 30 years of the same old thing, a guy needs to look at something different.” That comment hurt me deeply, and I’ve had trouble getting past it. For a little while, Eugene backed off the porn, but now he’s sneaking around. Today, I discovered he has logged on to live chat rooms and In-

Dear Unsure: All members of the bridal party, including parents, grandparents and officiants, are included in the rehearsal dinner. It is not mandatory to include all out-of-town guests, although if there aren’t too many of them, it would be both appropriate and kind to do so. Otherwise, please be sure there is hospitality provided at the resort specifically for them that includes some type of food (snacks, drinks, etc.).

your husband is looking for some thrills, and he’s being quite a jerk about it. This could be a typical midlife crisis: He’s approaching 50 and needs to feel young again. But such juvenile behaviors can damage a marriage beyond repair. Please ask Eugene to go with you for counseling.

Charlie Sheen makes most of ‘Anger’ I’ve always considered “Two and a Half Men” to be “Frasier” dumbed down for vulgarians threatened by genuine wit. And Charlie Sheen’s new comedy, “Anger Management” (8 and 8:30 p.m., FX), follows in that tradition. While “Men” borrowed sibling rivalry from “Frasier,” substituting cheap penis jokes for silly asides about pinot noir, “Anger” lifts the therapeutic angle of “Frasier.” Sheen plays Charlie Goodson, a therapist who was previously a professional baseball player. He became a counselor after his own anger issues ended his playing days. He maintains a chummy relationship with his exwife, Jennifer (Shawnee Smith), as they cooperate to raise their sweet and precocious daughter, Sam (Daniela Bobadilla). Charlie’s group therapy sessions allow him to offer one-liners and forced double entendres as means of encouragement to a panel of overdrawn stereotypes. They include a vain, needy gay man (Michael Arden), a resentful Vietnam vet (Barry Corbin), a delusional slacker (Derek Richardson) and a rage-filled hottie (Noureen DeWulf). Charlie does volunteer work as well, counseling prisoners who are also broadly drawn. Charlie carries on a commitment-free sexual relationship with Kate (Selma Blair), a fellow therapist. Midway through the first episode, Charlie feels a need to consult Kate as a shrink, and the law forbidding relationships between therapists and patients threatens to put their affair on hold. For a brief moment, it looks like this could provide the kind of frustrating romantic impediment necessary to generate genuine comedy. But this is a Charlie Sheen show.

For Thursday, June 28: This year security, romance and children are unusually high priorities. Like a true Cancer, you will be concerned with home and family. If you are single, you could leap from one romance to another. If you are attached, as a couple you could buy a house, spruce up your present abode, add a new addition and/or schedule a second honeymoon. The Stars Show the Kind of Day You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult Aries (March 21-April 19)  Do not allow a momentary discontent, fatigue or low-level depression to get to you. Understand what is going on with others. Tonight: Go for togetherness. Taurus (April 20-May 20)  The time has come to do what you have been postponing. The sense of liberation you’ll feel from this task’s completion is well worth it. Tonight: Just don’t go out alone. Gemini (May 21-June 20)  Toss your hat in the ring. Brainstorm and see what is behind someone’s motivation. Tonight: Understand that you need to slow down a little. Cancer (June 21-July 22)  You come from a grounded point of view. Could some people see this perspective as boring? If so, throw out some more wild and creative ideas. Tonight: Keep tapping into your imagination. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)  You might want to understand where someone is coming from before you have a heart-toheart talk with this person. Do not get yourself caught in a situation that makes you feel pressured. Tonight: All smiles — once you relax.

— Send questions to, or Annie’s Mailbox, P.O. Box 118190 Chicago, IL 60611.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)  You might be more intense than you realize. If you note several unusual responses, consider that it is likely you are acting differently. Tonight: A force to be dealt with. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)  You could be more in tune with people in the morning. Others expect a lot out of you. Tonight: As you like. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)  As the day grows older, you feel more empowered. Be spontaneous and less reserved. Tonight: Do not underestimate your charisma. Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)  You could be taken aback by someone else’s response, especially in the evening. An older person or someone you look up to can inspire you to find answers. Tonight: Not to be found. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)  You remain mellow despite others’ tumultuous moments, because you know you are heading down the right path. Close friends and key associates seem to inspire you. Tonight: Where the gang is. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)  Once more, others believe you have all the answers. Do not worry; instead, simply explain that you do not always have solutions. Tonight: Express your very caring nature. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)  Take a break or walk away from what is, or could become, a volatile situation. You do not need to explain yourself. Tonight: Use your imagination. — The astrological forecast should be read for entertainment only.

The Kansas men’s basketball 87-86 overtime victory over Missouri on Feb. 25 has been nominated for “Game of the Year” in this year’s ESPY awards, ESPN announced Wednesday. Then-No. 4 KU overcame a 19-point secondhalf deficit to beat No. 3 MU at Allen Fieldhouse. The contest also was the final conference battle between the two schools following a 105-year league history. The win gave the Jay-


eighth as the Royals recorded their first home sweep of the Rays in 11 years. “It’s been hot the last few days,” said Rays manager Joe Maddon. “But I tell you what, you didn’t hear one guy complain. They played right down to the last out. They were great.” Mike Moustakas and Alcides Escobar also homered for the Royals, who managed to sweep a team three games immediately after getting swept themselves. After a potentially ruinous 12-game losing streak in April, the youthful Royals have fought back to five games under .500 (34-39).

hawks at least a share of their eighth-straight Big 12 regular-season title — a championship they would win outright two days later. An ESPY nomination special will air Wednesday at 10 p.m. on ESPN2, and fans can vote for the contest on ESPN’s site.
