RACHEL PEREZ TALKS DURING AN INTERVIEW from a cell at the Johnson County New Century Adult Detention Center on June 21. In August 2010, Perez was arrested on a routine traffic warrant. After questions were raised by family members concerning the whereabouts of her then 6-year-old son with Down syndrome, law enforcement officials searched her home, where they found the boy in the attic on the brink of starvation and weighing less than 20 pounds.

Experts say mother’s treatment of 6-year-old among worst cases of abuse they’ve ever seen By Shaun Hittle

DE SOTO — On Aug. 17, 2010, Rachel Perez, 26, phoned her grandmother from the Johnson County Jail to say she’d been arrested on a traffic warrant. Perez asked about getting a lawyer and making bail. When the De Soto woman called back a half-hour later, things had taken a dramatic turn. Perez’s father, Martin Foster, answered this time and unleashed an expletive-laced tirade. The angry, disappointed Foster couldn’t believe what his daughter had done. “We found him, Rachel, in your attic!” he yelled. Perez denied it, saying she wasn’t even tall enough to reach the attic. “You will never convince me of that,” Foster said. “You put a little baby in a (expletive) attic!” “Oh my God,” Perez said.

Timeline of the case

RACHEL PEREZ LIVED in this De Soto home with her three children before she was arrested Aug. 17, 2010. Later that day, police found her 6-year-old son in the home’s attic. “Oh my God.” “Why? Why?” Foster said. “Are you that ashamed of him?” A 6-year-old boy with Down syndrome had been left starving in an attic, and now Perez’s family knew.

KU’s Natural History Museum director shares experiences Editor’s note: This is the first in an occasional series of stories by reporter Andy Hyland, asking Kansas University staff to share “16 Things I’ve Done.” By Andy Hyland

I first got the idea from a newspaper in San Diego, which went around to academics and simply got them talking about things they’ve done. I wanted to do that at Kansas University, and I knew where I wanted to start: in the office of Leonard Krishtalka, director of KU’s Natural History Museum and biodiversity research center. He agreed to be the guinea pig for the idea — but was adamant that he not be treated as some kind of celebrity and that we avoid focusing on trite clichés. “It’s not about me,” he said. “Focus on the big ideas.” He has helped expand the focus of the museum to include biodiversity informatics, which includes predictive aspects of the work of the museum as well as descriptive ones.

RECENT OUTAGES May 15: A cable in a manhole at the Sixth Street substation violently failed. One cable was placed out of service and other ones were compromised. More than 5,800 people didn’t have power for more than an hour.

May 15 outage On a quiet Sunday morning in mid-May, a violent fault from a cable in a manhole near the Sixth Street substation set off the recent string of Westar’s power outage woes. That explosion knocked out two of the substation’s three transformers, and more than 5,800 customers were without power. The explosion left one cable unusable and another one that could go at anytime. Several others were compromised. The cable leaving the Sixth Street substation, which serves parts of downtown, north Lawrence and east Lawrence, dates back to the 1970s when the substation was put in place. The cable’s life expectancy was 30 to 50 years. Two years ago, a company tested the cables for problems and didn’t identify any issues. But over time, a combination of weather damage and the wear and tear of operating around the clock at full capacity resulted in the cable failure. Soon after the cable failed May 15, Westar agreed to move forward with an upgrade to the substation that is expected to cost more than $1 million. Eight cables were going to be replaced. “We did recognize that after it happened that it would be a good time to repair and upgrade all the circuits coming out of there to bring them up to current standards,” said Jeff McKee, Westar’s director of operations in Lawrence. The primary concern during the project was that as cables were being replaced, other cables had to increase the amount of electricity they were carrying. Those increases were coming just as the weather was heating up and the demand for electricity was already growing.

May 23: A flock of birds caused a piece of equipment that ties together two transformers to fail. The equipment was at the Lawrence Hills substation and left 4,000 people without power.

June 10 outage The project took another hit June 10 when a switch melted out. The switch was rated to carry 600 amps of electricity. That day it was carrying 500 amps as energy loads had been shifted to other cables for the replacement of other cables to move forward. “It should have been able to handle it, but over time a switch like that, that has been in place a long time, a high resistance joint develops. And it got hot, and once it failed, it failed violently,” McKee said. In that event, about 4,800 customers lost power, among them was the city of Lawrence’s Outdoor Aquatic Center. Since then, the switch and others at the substation have been replaced with 900-amp switches. “So everything has improved,” McKee said. So far, Westar has replaced six of the substation’s eight cables and plans to be finished by mid-July. The new cables have 30 percent more capacity and more insulation than the ones that date back to the 1970s. The installation of new cables helps ease Wes-

Lawrence Hills substation The Sixth Street substation wasn’t the only area in Lawrence that has seen electricity problems these past few weeks. At the Lawrence Hills substation, which serves west Lawrence, a brand new breaker faulted. The cause hasn’t been identified. A month before that, a flock of birds caused a piece of equipment that ties two transformers together to fail at the same substation. On June 15, there were two power failures — one in west Lawrence and another in northern Lawrence — when two lightning arresters failed. Another group of power outages were the result of trees that came down during storms. Bottom line, Richardson said he hopes these recent round of upgrades will result in more reliable service. “There are no 100 percent guarantees. But the upgrades and things we are doing now will definitely help keep things reliable,” Richardson said.

June 10: More than 5,000 people were without power when a switch melted out at the Sixth Street substation. June 15: Two lightning arresters failed causing two different power outages. In the first power outage, 1,000 people near Sixth Street and Iowa were affected. In the second outage, more than 1,800 people in northern Lawrence were without power. June 19: Lightning and down tree limbs caused about 3,600 customers to lose power during a storm that rolled through Douglas County. June 27: About 2,600 customers lost power when a new breaker failed at the Lawrence Hills substation. Westar hasn’t identified the cause of the breaker failure. tar’s concerns about handling the increase in load as the temperatures rise. “We are over a little bit more of a hump. As we pick these up, there’s a little more relief on the system. We have a little more backup,” McKee said. “When you don’t have a lot of places to switch stuff to, it makes you a little nervous.” Westar is looking at other parts of the system that might need to be upgraded. As the electricity leaves the substation and moves closer to homes, Westar is checking to make sure the wires are large enough to meet the increasing energy loads. Infrared cameras also will be used to help determine problems in switches such as the one that caused the power outage June 10.

sky. Knowing it to be a trick, Krishtalka said he didn’t know. “365,232,657,089,” his father said. When Krishtalka asked how he knew, his father replied. “If you don’t believe me, count.” 2. Dissected a frog with his mother on the kitchen table as part of a homework assignment while at McGill University in Montreal. “There is this huge diversity of life, and there is a pattern to this diversity,” he said. “These were wondrous patterns I wanted to understand.” 3. Dropped out before he failed his third year at McGill. He entered at 16 and found that the movie theater down the street from the university showed three movies a day. He wasn’t mature enough at the time, he said, and watched 15 movies a week instead of going to class. 4. Worked menial jobs in Alberta for two years after that, including one in a paper mill. He came back, though, two years later, to the University of Alberta, where he discovered paleontology. He said he was “inculcated with his parents’ idea that education was everything.” 5. Discovered a complete skull of a horned, triceratopslike dinosaur called monoclonius in Alberta. When he saw the tip of the nose horn poking out of the ground, and the base of the skull a few feet away, he knew what he had found. 6. Smoked for much of his career, and rolled his own cigarettes with Drum tobacco. When he’d go out into the

field, he’d never smoke a cigarette until he found the first fossil of the day. No fossils meant no cigarettes. 7. Studied under Craig Black both at Kansas and Texas Tech, where Black became the director of the Natural History Museum. Black became like a mentor to Krishtalka and taught him to ask the big questions. “What does it all mean?” Black would press him to answer. 8. Noticed a blue car when he first came to KU as a Ph.D. student in the 1970s that seemed to be following him everywhere. Men with suits were in the car. He wondered if they were the KBI, watching him or someone else around him for who knows what reason. “It scared me,” he said. “I had never seen anything like this in Canada.” He walked up to the men one day and knocked on their window, and told them he would be soon going to the Baskin-Robbins ice cream store. He didn’t see them again after that. 9. Wrote two novels, drawing on an appreciation for the role of the arts and the humanities in science. He’s unpublished but is represented by a literary agent in London. One involves a paleontologist who disappears on an expedition, and another deals with cave art, he said. 10. Raised two children: Zack and Molly. He said he’s tried to teach them to do three things — “Be smart, question authority and kick ass.” That last one is figuratively and not literally, he’s quick to add. 11. Bicycled up and down Mont Ventoux in southern France in 5-degree weather. It’s a mountain that’s frequently featured in the Tour

de France. He did it with a cycling group, and his son, about 14 or 15 at the time, met him at the top, where he was so cold, he could barely get off his bike. “I did it for Zack, I suppose,” Krishtalka said, as part of showing him what “kicking ass” was all about. 12. Traded papers with his daughter, who is in law school at McGill University. He often reads her papers. He’s not allowed to edit them — he just gives feedback. She reads his op-ed pieces before they run. She’s allowed to edit them. 13. Been written about in Time magazine twice — once for helping to find a large fossil site in Wyoming and once for f inding a part of the famous prehuman “Lucy” fossil in Africa. “That doesn’t make me a celebrity,” he said. “Any fool can find fossils.” 14. Threw the Lucy fossil — a part of the skull about the size of a small turtle shell — like a Frisbee to another colleague, who fortunately caught it. That was not a good idea, he admits now. 15. Worked at the National Science Foundation for three years, where he reviewed some of the most exciting projects that were going on around the country, and only got to fund about a third of them. 16. Argued for the inclusion of the teaching of evolution in high schools when it was threatened in Kansas. His greatest disappointment, he said, is “that people will not separate faith and belief from reason and thought.” — Higher education reporter Andy Hyland can be reached at 832-6388. Follow him at

Lawrence man seeks new sexual battery trial based on claims of new evidence By George Diepenbrock

A Lawrence man serving a 22-year prison sentence for aggravated sexual battery is asking a Douglas County judge to give him a new trial and claims new evidence proves he is innocent. But Douglas County prosecutors question the credibility of the witnesses who 28year-old Jason Ellison has cited, including two other prison inmates. District Judge Robert Fairchild has scheduled a July 11 hearing to hear evidence about Ellison’s claims in the case. A Douglas County jury in November 2006 convicted Ellison of aggravated sexual battery and found him not guilty of attempted aggravated criminal sodomy, and Fairchild sentenced Ellison to serve 272 months in prison. According to court records, a sister of Ellison’s former girlfriend in July 2006 accused Ellison of attempting to molest her twice when he lived with the family.

But Ellison says witnesses allege in four instances since the trial the woman indicated to them her allegations about Ellison were not true, and defense attorney Napoleon Crews said one witness alleged the woman said she wanted to punish Ellison for cheating on her sister. “The victim didn’t start making these statements until after he was convicted,” Crews told Fairchild at an earlier hearing. One of the witnesses the defense cites is Jeffrey Campbell, a 34-year-old prison inmate currently at Larned State Hospital. In an affidavit, he said the woman “openly” told him and other people in a room on Dec. 16, 2006, that her accusations were not true and that she was upset one of the charges against Ellison was dropped. Campbell said she made these statements three days before the Ottawa shooting he was convicted of being involved in. Campbell is currently serving an attempted murder sentence.

Douglas County prosecutors say Fairchild should dismiss the motion for a new trial because the statements are biased, including one from Ellison’s father, Terry Ellison. “Ellison’s affidavits do not credibly demonstrate new evidence under the legal standard,” Assistant District Attorney Patrick Hurley wrote in a motion. “The four affidavits are not credible, irrelevant and are unduly biased.” According to court records, the new witnesses’ allegations came to light as part of an investigation by student interns from the Kansas University School of Law’s Paul E. Wilson Project for Innocence and Post-Conviction Remedies. The Kansas Court of Appeals upheld the conviction, and the Kansas Supreme Court refused to hear Ellison’s appeal in January 2009.

War’s deadly toll hasn’t eased Despite U.S. reports of progress on the battlefield, American troops were killed in the first half of this year at the same pace as in 2010 — an indication that the war’s toll on U.S. forces has not eased as the Obama administration moves to shift the burden to the Afghans. While the overall international death toll dropped by 14 percent in the first half of the year, the number of Americans who died remained virtually unchanged, 197 this year compared with 195 in the first six months of last year, according to a tally by The Associated Press. Americans have been involved in some of the fiercest fighting as the U.S. administration sent more than 30,000 extra troops in a bid to pacify areas in the Taliban’s southern heartland and other dangerous areas. U.S. military officials have predicted more tough fighting through the summer as the Taliban try to regain territory they have lost. President Barack Obama has begun to reverse the surge of American forces, ordering a reduction of 10,000 by the end of the year and another 23,000 by September 2012. 2 | WASHINGTON, D.C.

Obama: Nothing off-limits in budget President Barack Obama said Saturday that “nothing can be off-limits” in the budget debate — even though Republicans have said tax increases are. The president said every tax break and federal program must come under scrutiny. With an Aug. 2 deadline looming to raise the government borrowing limit, the president used his weekly radio and Internet address to call on Congress to make a deal. He also renewed his call for Congress to eliminate some tax breaks for the well-off as part of any agreement. Republicans want deep spending cuts without any tax increases while Obama and Democrats call for what they term a “balanced” approach. That means one that also includes new revenue in the form of higher taxes for some, though Democrats steer clear of using phrases like “tax increases” or “higher taxes.” “Now, it would be nice if we could keep every tax break, but we can’t afford them,” Obama said. “Because if we choose to keep those tax breaks for millionaires and billionaires, or for hedge fund managers and corporate jet owners, or for oil and gas companies pulling in huge profits without our help — then we’ll have to make even deeper cuts somewhere else.” 3 | MONACO

Prince weds bride in lavish ceremony Monaco’s Prince Albert II and Princess Charlene promised each other love and fidelity in an extravagant religious wedding Saturday attended by international celebrities and royalty, bringing new allure to the tiny principality known for its luxurious casinos and as stomping ground for the rich and famous. The Catholic service followed an intimate civil ceremony Friday, which saw Charlene officially transformed from commoner into royalty. The marriage of the 53-year-old prince and the 33-year-old Charlene Wittstock, a one-time Olympic swimmer from South Africa who is now known as Princess Charlene, ended a three-decade wait for a new princess. The last wedding of a ruling prince in Monaco was in 1956, when Hollywood star Grace Kelly married Prince Rainier III.

A Douglas County underwater search and recovery team planned to resume a search at Lone Star Lake for a 7-year-old Kansas City, Mo., boy at first light today after being unable to find him Saturday evening. Sgt. Steve Lewis, a Douglas County Sheriff ’s spokesman, said witnesses had reported last seeing the boy swimming in the beach area in the afternoon, but he was reported missing and off icers were called to the county lake southwest of Lawrence at 3:50 p.m. Officers later roped off the swimming beach near the campground and called in the underwater team, which arrived at 6:40 p.m. and began searching water around a dock that separates shallow water

near the beach from the rest of the lake to the north, Lewis said. Rylan Adams, a 12-year-old Atchison boy at the lake with his family, said the atmosphere changed drastically at the lake in a few minutes Saturday afternoon from a fun holiday weekend into a stressful search for the missing boy. Rylan said he was playing in the water inside the dock, and he saw the boy who was later reported missing splashing in the water as well. Rylan didn’t know the boy. “He didn’t go farther than his chest because he couldn’t really swim,” he said. Rylan said about 10 minutes later he heard an adult ask where the boy was. He looked and didn’t see the boy in the water any more. Within minutes several adults began searching around the beach area before calling law enforcement.

There was plenty of fanfare at the Carnegie Library building Saturday as a new history exhibit opened celebrating Lawrence and the region’s contributions to freedom. Tributes to Bleeding Kansas, the Civil War up to the civil rights era lined the walls of the city’s refurbished building at the corner of Ninth and Vermont streets, and members of the public got their first peek of the exhibit Saturday. For Lawrence resident Deanell Tacha, a founding chairwoman of the Freedom’s Frontier National Heritage Area, it was a highlight to just see people’s faces. “It’s just been so inspiring. We’ve had people of all ages in here,” said Tacha Saturday evening as she greeted dozens of people who streamed in for the evening grand opening event. Please see EXHIBIT, page 4A

“We all looked around here,” Rylan said. “He’s really young, and I wanted to help.” Lewis said the sheriff ’s office had called a chaplain to help the boy’s parents during the search. “Our thoughts and prayers are with the family,” he said. He also said looking for a missing child can be difficult on law enforcement and medical personnel. “It’s definitely significantly hard on the family and friends, but it’s also tough on first responders, especially when it’s a child,” he said. Lewis said the underwater team planned to resume its search this morning, and the sheriff’s office was hoping to be able to use a boat with sidereading sonar to assist in the search.


ible assignment: Travel across the South, treating the region as a foreign correspondent would. Olmsted’s dispatches — penetrating, balanced, humane — were eagerly read by Northerners looking for a window into the Southern mindset and intentions. Along the way, given all that he witnessed, Olmsted became a fervent abolitionist. In 1855, a man named James Abbott arranged a meeting with Olmsted. Abbott was one of the many people who had moved to Kansas under the aegis of the New England Emigrant Aid Co. This was an outfit that relocated farmers with free soil leanings, paying their passage to Kansas from states such as Connecticut and Maine. Abbott was now an officer with a militia, bent on making sure that if Kansas gained statehood it would be as a free state. Abbott was on a trip back East soliciting funds to purchase weapons for his militia.

Will the DeVictor Park walkway from Bob Billings Parkway to George Williams Way be completely cemented sometime soon? Most of the walkway is done, but there are some parts that are just mud.


According to Megan Gilliland, communications manager for the city of Lawrence, “Parks and Recreation intends to convert the trail in DeVictor Park from a mowed surface to concrete once funds are available; however, funding is currently not set aside to complete this project.”

During visits to Hartford, Conn., and Providence, R.I., Abbott had already raised enough money to buy 100 Sharps rifles, a.k.a. Beecher’s Bibles. In New York, he connected with Olmsted and dubbed him acting commissioner of his free state activities. Olmsted raised more than $300 for Abbott’s cause from fellow Eastern abolitionists including Horace Greeley, editor of the New York Tribune and coiner of the term “Bleeding Kansas.” Ever diligent, Olmsted decided to talk with an expert before purchasing weapons for Abbott’s militia. He consulted a veteran of European warfare, a man who had fought under Giuseppe


Tacha said young people and educators were part of an afternoon crowd that came to view the exhibits. Several city and county leaders attended the evening grand opening, which included Harold Riehm portraying Charles Robinson, the state’s first governor. Judy Billings, director of the organization that oversees the heritage area, said the exhibit is meant to serve as an introduction for the entire area, which includes 41 counties in eastern Kansas and western Missouri. The Carnegie serves as the headquarters for the heritage area, and the Lawrence City Commission spent $200,000 of guest tax money to fund the main exhibit.


Garibaldi during the turmoil that gripped Italy in 1848. In this expert’s opinion, Abbott’s militia already had enough Beecher’s Bibles and other assault weapons. What was needed was a defensive weapon to stave off attacks. So Olmsted went to the New York State Arsenal and used the money he’d raised to purchase a mountain howitzer cannon and ammunition. Olmsted recognized that he was involved in a dangerous activity. To keep Abbott apprised, Olmsted sent him a series of letters employing code (such as “H” for howitzer). Abbott referred to Olmsted as a “prompt and energetic friend of Kansas.” Olmsted’s howitzer was mounted in front of the Free State Hotel, on the future site of the Eldridge Hotel.

Also as part of the evening event, members of the Betty Washington Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution donated an American flag to the Carnegie building. Janet Kastl said the flag flew Feb. 25 over the U.S. Capitol at the request of U.S. Rep. Lynn Jenkins. Kastl said chapter members believed it was fitting to be able to present the flag as part of the new exhibit, and they hoped it could be flown outside some day in front of the building. “It points to the tradition and the historical significance here in town,” she said. — Reporter George Diepenbrock can be reached at 832-7144.

Group observes marking of Civil War veteran’s grave HISTORY EXPERT IONA SPENCER brings a small bouquet of flowers to the grave of Christopher Columbus Blake, a Union soldier in the Civil War, during a ceremony to commemorate the marking of the grave at Stull Cemetery with a gathering of descendants Saturday.

Bonnie Knott’s greatgrandfather was shot in the leg during the second Battle of Bull Run. According to family lore, he lay wounded on the battlefield for three days before he was found. Although his leg was amputated, he survived the battle. He was one of the 353 Union Army sharpshooters from New Hampshire who fought during the Civil War. These marksmen stood out from other soldiers; they wore green uniforms — not the standard Union blue — and carried top-of-the-line rifles. Knott, of Amherst, N.H., always knew about her ancestor’s history. As her mother got older, Knott said, she felt an urgent need to learn more about the family members her mom talked about. “I said, ‘I better get going on trying to figure out who all these people were and make sense of it,’” she said. “Soon, someone wouldn’t be around to ask questions to.” As Knott learned more about her great-grandfather, her interest in the Civil War grew. In 2001, she set a goal: Locate the graves of all 353 New Hampshire sharpshooters. She has found 320, including Christopher Columbus Blake, who is buried in Stull.

Recognition Cars lined the gravel road in the rural Stull Cemetery on Saturday morning. A group of 21 people gathered to commemorate Blake’s new headstone. A few years ago, Steven Bergers, a direct descendent of Blake, resolved to memorialize his great-uncle’s previously unmarked grave. Bergers sought Knott’s assistance. Knott sorted through century-old records to learn more about Blake’s life. Once they verified that Blake fought in the Civil War, the Veterans Association provided a headstone to memorialize Blake’s unmarked grave. The headstone was installed in May.

Iona Spencer was instrumental in the process. She is an expert on Lecompton-area history and is a descendent of a Civil War veteran, coincidentally buried in the same cemetery as Blake. Spencer said Blake’s grave is simply listed as “occupied” in the historical documents. Although the grave was unmarked, Bergers knew his great-uncle was buried in the cemetery. So Spencer did her research. She found a document stating Blake was buried next to his son-in-law.

Fulfilled goals The three relatives of Civil War veterans, who had never met before the project, worked together to accomplish their own personal goals. Knott located yet another New Hampshire sharpshooter. Spencer expanded the historical registry. Bergers gave his greatuncle proper recognition. Bergers wasn’t at Saturday’s dedication ceremony. He died at the beginning of this year before he could witness his goal come to fruition. His daughter, Emily Bergers Louni, finished the project. “It just means so much to me to be able to complete the things that he left undone that I knew he really wanted to see take place,” she said. “I feel like I can maybe move on a little better once I complet-

I said, ‘I better get going on trying to figure out who all these people were and make sense of it.’ Soon, someone wouldn’t be around to ask questions to.”

WEDDING REGISTRY The Best In Everything For The Kitchen

Knott was unable to attend. Officers of the Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War, a group of Civil War descendants, sang “Battle Hymn of the Republic.” Louni’s son, Josh Bergers, of Topeka, read a short biography on Blake: He was born in Maine, moved to Kansas in 1866 and made a living predicting the weather in his later years. The leading officer concluded the dedication with a final goodbye. “Brother Blake, you are now relieved; we have your post,” he said.

‘Heard a noise’ The condition of some of the small duplex homes on Center Drive in De Soto progressively deteriorate the farther you go down the street. Nice, well-kept homes with fresh paint turn into older buildings — some vacant — with flecked paint and worn roofs. Rachel Perez’s former home is about halfway down the street. About 2 p.m. on Aug. 17, Johnson County Sheriff ’s deputies went to that home following up on a call from Foster and Perez’s grandmother, Patricia Moran. Moran called police with concerns about the welfare of Perez’s son, the middle child, who had reportedly been left at home alone at times. In the recorded jailhouse phone call, Foster hints at other forms of abuse they suspected in the home. “I keep hearing these horror stories about this little boy who can’t defend himself,” Foster tells his daughter. Deputies found Perez with her boyfriend, Jose Acosta, along with Perez’s two daughters, ages 8 and 5. She told the deputies her son wasn’t home — he was with his father, according to police testimony. Armed with a traffic warrant, police arrested Perez, while Acosta took custody of her two daughters, who were then taken to relatives of Perez. The home was empty, except for the boy in the attic. For hours, Perez sat at the Johnson County Jail, calling family members and friends, trying to make bail. She insisted the boy wasn’t at the home, and even told police there wasn’t an attic in the house. Patrol Sgt. Mark Rokusek was working the night shift and was one of several deputies to return to the home later that evening. About 11:15 p.m. Moran met them at Perez’s home, determined to find the boy. “She believed he was in the house,” Rokusek said. Moran persisted. Deputies knocked on the door and checked the outside of the building, looking for a legally justifiable reason to enter the home. They heard a noise, and Rokusek made the decision to go inside. They looked through an open window. The smell of urine and feces wafted out of the home. In photos taken of the house, little white dots — which prosecutors explain were maggots — can be seen in the boy’s crib. A deputy entered the home through the window. There were no signs of the boy. Rokusek said they expected to find the boy hiding under a bed or in a closet — making it a routine child welfare check. Then one of the deputies “heard a noise from the attic,” Rokusek said. The deputy reached up to the 2-by-2-foot access panel, which led to a small overhead space, or attic. There was one small ventilation screen in the attic. Photos of the space show loose insulation, broken boards and rusty nails. The high temperature for the day was 80 degrees, but it was much warmer in the attic. Deputies slid the access panel over. “At that very moment, these two tiny feet plopped out of the hole and the little boy’s head popped out,” Rokusek said. Deputies took the boy, weighing less than 20 pounds and covered in feces and urine, handed him to his grandmother, and called for an ambulance. Rokusek recounts the day’s events in a matter-of-fact, police-jargon technical way. That is, until he talks about the boy. “I’ve always wondered what that little boy was thinking about when he sat in that attic by himself alone for seven, eight, nine hours; during the heat of the day, into the darkness of the night, all by himself,” Rokusek said. Charges Prosecutors initially charged Perez, who was four months pregnant with her fourth child, with child abuse and child endangerment,

allegations that could have sent her to prison for 41 months. Then they added attempted second-degree murder. Chris Brown, a Johnson County assistant district attorney who prosecuted the case, said the charge matched the crime. Perez left the child in the attic and knew she wasn’t getting out of jail until at least the next morning. By then, the boy could have been dead. He was so malnourished that he couldn’t walk, according to medical testimony from Dr. Lisa Spector, a pediatrician at Children’s Mercy who treated the boy. Spector described the boy’s lack of muscle tissue and body fat. The boy wouldn’t have survived another 24 hours in that attic, she said. “This is the worst case of child abuse that did not result in a child’s death that I have ever seen,” Brown said. With a warning about their content, Brown showed several pictures — never released publicly — of the boy taken at the scene. One of the photos shows the boy’s rib cage and bones nearly piercing his skin, as he clutches to Moran. Mixed in with the shocking pictures in the prosecution’s case file is a studio portrait of the boy taken in March 2008. A healthy-looking 4-year-old smiles for the camera. Brown and Rasmussen also have another, more recent photo of the boy, taken just three months after he was found. This time, it’s a plump 7-yearold smiling back.

‘Everything will be OK’ Awaiting transfer to the Kansas Department of Corrections, Rachel Perez sat last week in a glaring white holding cell at Johnson County Jail, recounting to the Journal-World what happened the day she was arrested. “Next thing I know, I hear ‘bam, bam, bam,’” said Perez, who was at home with Acosta, her boyfriend, along with her son and two daughters. She peeked out the window and saw two police cars. Perez knew a judge had issued a warrant for her arrest for unpaid traffic fines. She knew the drill. She’d been arrested before on a similar charge. She said she didn’t want to put her kids through the trauma of seeing their mom arrested again. Looking for places to hide, Perez slid a table over and picked up her son. “I … put him up there because he’s the lightest,” said Perez about moving her son into the attic. Then the table broke. “I fell through,” said Perez, who then used a broom to slide the hatch, covering the attic. She reassured the boy. “Hold on baby, everything will be OK,” she said. Perez said she thought about running from police. She looked out an open window, and that’s when a deputy, from outside, reached in and pinned her against the wall. Acosta let the police in, and they took Perez outside. “Then they started asking me questions about (her son),” Perez said. Police arrived at the home around 2 p.m., and Perez was taken into custody around 4 p.m. Until 11 p.m., Perez’s son remained in the attic — as Perez denied he was there, saying the boy was with his father. “Now they’re asking about him and what am I going to say? ‘He’s in the attic at the moment,’” Perez said. “It was the stupidest thing I’ve ever


Parties involved in the Rachel Perez case Rachel Perez: Serving a 102-month sentence after pleading guilty to child abuse and attempted second-degree murder for leaving her 6-year-old son in the attic of her home in De Soto last August. The boy weighed less than 20 pounds when found. Perez Despite what prosecutors contend, Perez says she never put the boy in the attic or withheld food from him as punishment. She also hopes to eventually reunite with her children when she’s released from prison. Perez could be paroled in late 2017. Jason Billam: Perez’s courtappointed defense attorney, who after hearing testimony at the preliminary hearing, advised Perez to plead guilty. Billam says that, had the Billam case gone to trial, a jury could have doubled her sen-

done. I lost my life because I lied.” In the panic, Perez said the lie seemed the “most logical.”

How did no one notice? Jason Billam, Perez’s courtappointed attorney, says the photo of a healthy boy is a clue that at one point Perez had taken adequate care of her special-needs son. But as the boy got older, his needs exceeded Perez’s ability to care for him, he said. “She basically lied to herself about being able to take care of him,” Billam said. “At times her behavior was reckless. At times her behavior was scary. (But) at no time was she trying to kill.” Starting out as a teenage mother, Perez said she did the best she could with limited resources. Days from being evicted from the house on Center Drive when arrested, Perez and her three children lived on the $674 monthly disability insurance payments she received from Social Security for her son. Boyfriends and the fathers of her children moved in and out of their lives, helping financially when they were around. The family had been receiving food stamps and benefits from the state, but Perez said those were taken away in 2009. It’s not clear why they were cut off, but Perez said it was a paperwork problem. Times were tough, and money was tight. But Perez insists there wasn’t any abuse. She says the boy never was in the attic before that August day, though prosecutors say it was a typical place for Perez to put the boy. Perez, however, admits to neglecting her children, and acknowledges her home was “trashed.” She didn’t take her son to the doctor, didn’t keep the house clean, didn’t tell the truth about where he was. For that, Perez said, she’ll be pun-

tence. Billam contends that Perez’s actions were “reckless,” but that the woman lacked the intent to kill her son. Deputy Mark Rokusek: Johnson County Sheriff’s deputy who, along with several other deputies, found the boy in the attic of Perez’s home. Rokusek described the scene Rokusek as “shocking” and initially thought the boy was a toddler because of his size.



Prosecution team: Johnson County Assistant District Attorneys Chris Brown and Erika Rasmussen handled the prosecution of the case. They contend that Perez routinely placed the boy in the attic

ished for the rest of her life. She’s sorry that “all this happened.” The apology didn’t extend to her son’s poor condition; in Perez’s eyes, that wasn’t a problem. “(Him) being little bitty skinny was not unusual,” Perez said. “He wouldn’t grow.” As the boy’s physical condition deteriorated over those one and a half years, Perez began hiding the child for fear that protective services would get involved if anyone saw him, Billam explained at sentencing. The boy wasn’t enrolled in school, and Perez moved around a lot.

Judge Peter Ruddick: Johnson County district judge who handled the case. At sentencing, Ruddick called Perez’s actions Ruddick “unfathomable” and gave her the maximum sentence on all counts. The family: Two family members played prominent roles in Perez’s case: Martin Foster, Perez’s father, and Patricia Moran, Perez’s grandmother. According to court testimony, Moran and Foster called police with concerns about the boy. Their alerting authorities led to Perez’s arrest on a traffic warrant — and to the discovery of the boy in the attic. Foster spoke briefly at the sentencing hearing, saying, “What my daughter did was wrong. … But I do love her dearly.” Foster declined an

It’s unclear how much interaction the boy had with the outside world. People in her neighborhood and at the De Soto library — where Perez frequently took her two daughters — reported seeing Perez out with her girls, but not the boy. Perez and Billam say that Social and Rehabilitation Services, or SRS — the state agency that investigates child abuse and neglect — had investigated Perez’s family. But it’s not clear what role SRS played in the Perez case. SRS, citing exemptions in the Kansas open records laws for child welfare cases, denied the Journal-World’s

interview request, and Moran could not be reached for comment. Social and Rehabilitation Services: Open records requests to SRS by the Journal-World for information about the agency’s involvement in Perez’s case were denied. Perez said she had been investigated for child abuse in 2009, but the complaint was not substantiated. It’s not known if there were other complaints or what interventions, if any, were made. Perez also said she was receiving state assistance up until 2009, but she said those benefits ended because of paperwork problems. Stacey Eastwood: A relative of Perez’s who in court identified herself as the current foster mother of the boy discovered in the attic and Perez’s two daughters. Eastwood spoke at the sentencing hearing, detailing the abuse suffered by the boy and the girls. Eastwood declined an interview request for this story.

Prosecutors also were unable to comment on SRS’ involvement in the case, citing confidentiality agreements mandated in child abuse cases. Perez said any complaints that were made were not substantiated, and SRS took no action. The complaints, according to Perez, were made in 2009, at a time that her son may have been at a normal weight. It was the suspicions of family members that caught Please see ABUSE, page 7A

up with Perez. Prosecutors credit those family members with saving the boy’s life. SRS relies on concerns from family and community members in abuse and neglect cases, said Gina MeierHummel, director of children and family services for SRS. In 2010, SRS received more than 55,000 reports of child abuse or neglect. Those calls are screened by 24-hour staff, and a determination is made regarding follow-up. Last year, 64 percent of those initial reports led to an in-person follow-up by workers — which must be done within 72 hours. The interventions in such cases range from parent education to removal of children from the home. Meier-Hummel — who could not speak specifically about the Perez case — stressed that there is no reason not to call SRS when something appears wrong with a child, whether it’s an abuse or malnutrition case. Reports can be made anonymously to SRS’ round-theclock hot line, 1-800-922-5330. “We have a responsibility as citizens” to report, she said.

Court case In Perez’s case, a phone call saved her son from what prosecutors contend was ongoing torture. At a court hearing in February, testimony centered on the life of the boy who wasn’t a “picky eater,” despite what Perez’s attorney contended. Food was withheld when the child acted out, Brown said. It was a systematic, prolonged starvation. And it wasn’t the first time the boy had been in the attic; it was routine, Brown said. The prosecution’s theory was bolstered by video testimony from Perez’s two daughters — interviewed by specialists at Sunflower House, an interviewing and assessment center for abused and neglected children in Shawnee.

Intense therapy required to help children recover from abuse Siblings also damaged by trauma of guilt

By Shaun Hittle

Nancy Kellogg, a Texasbased pediatrician who studies intentional starvation, said the condition and weight of Rachel Perez’s son when found was one of the more severe cases of child starvation she’s ever known. To put it in perspective, Kellogg said the boy was the average weight of an 8-month-old infant. He was 6 years old. Prosecutors allege Perez intentionally starved the boy over an unknown period of time. Intentional child starvation is one of the rarest forms of child abuse, Kellogg said, but cases do happen. That type of abuse brings significant physical and psychological concerns as a child recovers, she said. When a starvation victim is found, Kellogg said the initial impulse from the rescuers is to feed the victim, which can be fatal. A victim’s system is so compromised that any food can pose a threat known as “refeeding syndrome.” Treatment starts with small amounts of fluids and nutrients, then moves onto smaller amounts of food over the ensuing weeks and months. In most cases, a child is able to regain lost weight, but will never be able to regain the height growth lost during the time they were malnourished. Starvation victims also run the risk of hoarding food and becoming overweight, part of the psychological damage caused by the abuse. There are numerous other psychological challenges victims of severe child abuse

face, said Jim Henry, director of the Child Trauma Assessment Center at Western Michigan University. Henry said such abuse affects a victim’s perception of the world. “People are not to be trusted. People will hurt me,” he said of the altered reality seen in severe abuse cases. Those issues require intense therapy and intervention, something Henry said is made more difficult in children with underlying disabilities, such as Perez’s son, who has Down syndrome. Henry also spoke of the psychological trauma inflicted on witnesses to such behavior — Perez’s two daughters testified about seeing their brother abused. “They’re also facing the guilt,” Henry said. Some witnesses are left with believing they’re somehow responsible for the abuse, or that they

could have stopped such treatment. Henry said research provides some clues into the mindset that leads people to severely abuse their child — something unfathomable to many parents. A “projected out anger” leads to a distorted thought process, Henry said. That anger could result from shame about a child’s disability, or anger meant for the birth father. Regardless of the source, the anger leads to an emotional disconnect. “The child becomes an object,” Henry said. “There’s no emotional connection.” Once it reaches that point, Henry said, nearly any action or abuse can be justified in an abuser’s mind. — Reporter Shaun Hittle can be reached at 832-7173.

Tax assumptions Do Lawrence taxpayers agree that city officials have a “moral obligation” to target sales tax funds almost exclusively to recreation projects?


new recreation center would be a nice addition to northwest Lawrence, and KU basketball coach Bill Self’s promise of a $1 million donation and assistance in raising another $2 million in private funds certainly sweetens the deal. However, Lawrence city commissioners shouldn’t base their decision about the center on any perceived “moral” obligation to use all or most of the money from its share of a countywide sales tax on recreation projects. When the sales tax was approved in 1994, voters were told that it would be used for recreation projects, the Community Health Building, construction of a new county jail and to provide property tax relief. However, the actual wording of the ballot question put no restrictions on how the money could be used. Nonetheless, the city has continued to direct that money to recreation projects. Now that it has paid off the Indoor Aquatic Center and is close to paying off Eagle Bend Golf Course, it sees an opportunity to make another major recreation investment. A new recreation center, perhaps on property north of Walmart, would fill a geographical gap in the city’s recreational facilities and provide additional gymnasium space for the entire community. But is a recreation center with an estimated price tag of $15 million the best use of the city’s sales tax revenue? City commissioners need to ask that question and not just assume that sales tax money that is being freed up by other projects being paid off must be redirected to new recreation facilities. “We have the legal authority to use it however we want,” Mayor Aron Cromwell said last week. “But the moral authority I don’t think is there to use it for anything other than recreation.” That’s a big assumption. How about the “moral authority” to provide property tax relief, which also was among the tax’s original selling points? It seems well within that authority for the city to use sales tax revenue to pay for additional police officers or other expenses that would otherwise trigger an increase in the city’s mill levy. City commissioners and other supporters of expanding the Lawrence Public Library refused to consider using sales tax money instead of a property tax increase to fund that project although such a move would have provided property tax relief on a building that arguably qualifies as a recreation facility. Again, a northwest recreation center may be a good project for the city and the support from Self certainly is appreciated, but before the city agrees to make that investment, it owes it to taxpayers to revisit its assumptions about how revenue from the 1994 sales tax must be distributed.



From the Lawrence Daily JournalWorld for July 3, 1911: “Independence Day is not to pass by in Lawrence unobserved and the celeYEARS bration of the day promises to be a good AGO one. While there will be no special effort IN 1911 to enforce a rigid ‘sane’ ordinance, the small boys and the elongated fire cracker will be looked after and he must not get too noisy. There seems to be no disposition in Lawrence to stop the use of fireworks entirely so long as it keeps within the bonds of decency.” “A new registration of ‘borrowers’ has been started at the city library, beginning with July 1. This is done in order to clean out the cards of people who have moved away from town, to straighten out addresses, and otherwise place the records of the library in good shape, so that there will be no confusion or delay when books are called for.” — Compiled by Sarah St. John

Default threat erodes U.S. confidence At a time when America’s economy is hurting, Republican presidential hopefuls call for “restoring American greatness.” So why are Republicans in Congress bent on policies that would hasten U.S. decline? America’s strengths — which made it the unchallenged global leader — were based on democratic institutions and economic successes. Other nations sought to copy our economic and politi-

already weakened, will tank if we appear ready to default on our financial obligations, including domestic ones.”

cal systems because they worked better than any other model. That’s what was famously known as our “soft power.” Yet Republican brinkmanship over hiking the U.S. debt limit is endangering those already troubled institutions, and signaling the world they could fail. Few Americans grasp the dangers of the congressional battle over the debt ceiling. Somewhere between 33 percent and 40 percent of every dollar the U.S. government spends is financed by borrowing. Under Republican and Democratic administrations alike we have been able to finance this debt because U.S. Treasury bills are considered the world’s safest investment. Countries such as China and Saudi Arabia keep their excess funds in T-bills because of their unqualified faith in U.S. institutions. That could change. The debt ceiling needs to be raised at the latest by early August — not to spend more, but to cover current obligations. Republican and Democratic leaders have been locked in talks to find $2 trillion in federal savings to offset a rise in the debt limit. Seeing a political opportunity

to push for Medicare cuts, Republicans insist the entire amount must come from slashing the federal budget, with no increase in revenue. This wholly unrealistic stance is dictated by politics, not economic reality. Republicans have rejected Democratic pleas to eliminate some tax breaks, say, for oil and gas companies making windfall profits. House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, R-Va., even walked out of the talks in a dramatic gesture of displeasure. From such political posturing, disaster can come. “Right now investors and other governments are scratching their heads in disbelief. They have a hard time understanding this,” I was told by Princeton University economist Alan Blinder, a former vice chairman of the Federal Reserve System’s Board of Governors. “If we actually started defaulting, this would be a big shock to the financial system … on a par with, and maybe beyond, the impact of (the collapse of) Lehman Bros.” That event triggered the 2008 global financial crisis. “There is a tremendous concern about what might follow a Greek default,” says Blinder, “but Greece is a tiny country compared to the United States, and it has no role in the financial leadership of the world. How much

greater would be the impact of … the U.S. defaulting.” The mere thought of a U.S. default makes waves. Republicans claim we would not have to default if we failed to raise the ceiling. But, as President Obama pointed out with visible frustration in a news conference Wednesday, that would present impossible choices. Without new loans, any effort to pay the interest on existing foreign debt would rule out meeting our domestic obligations. “Are we really going to pay interest on Treasury bills to China,” asked the president, “and not pay Social Security checks or not pay veterans? We’re the greatest nation on Earth, and we don’t act that way.” If we do act that way, however, world markets will take note. Global faith in American institutions, already weakened, will tank if we appear ready to default on our financial obligations, including domestic ones. If bond markets begin to think T-bills are the least bit risky, we will have to pay higher interest rates to attract investors. This will make our economic recovery much, much harder. “This might lead to a situation where the world can’t regard the U.S. as a safe haven,” says Robert Solow, a Nobel laureate in economics. “This would be a terrible

blow to the leadership role of the United States.” Which brings us back to Republican tropes about restoring American greatness. American leadership is already being challenged abroad by China, which is promoting an alternative governance model to ours: state capitalism plus political repression. The Republican flirtation with default plays into Beijing’s hands. “The spectacle of U.S. democracy being so dysfunctional will reinforce the narrative ... of the rise of state capitalism as an alternative to free-market capitalism,” says Sebastian Mallaby, of the Council on Foreign Relations. “It plays into the hands of autocrats in Russia and China who say democracy can’t promote growth.” I’d add that this display of U.S. dysfunction also undercuts the appeal of democracy for Arab revolutionaries. Further, it reaffirms radical jihadis’ convictions that America is in decline. So Republicans who say they want to restore American greatness — including tea party hardliners — should look hard at what they are actually doing. By pushing America toward default, they risk destroying what they claim to admire.

Common good calls for sacrifices The Douglas County Department of Enlightenment and Coercion paid me a visit the other day, along with the Lawrence Office of Environmental and Social Supervision. Also in attendance were representatives of the Free State Bureau of Restrictions and the Pioneer Office of Entitlements. I counted 42 cars and trucks, each driven by a single individual. (Separate vehicles give individuals quiet time to dream up new regulations and growth prevention initiatives, I learned.) A forklift was required to unload Vision 5050, the manual which the county has compiled to determine its future for the next 3,000 years. The purpose of the visit was to designate “viewsheds” on my property. I was informed of this by Officer of Visions, Walter Utopia, whose degree in Apocalyptic Ecology qualified him to identify natural beauty and to fine tune the interactions of human beings with the environment. I observed that for every worker, there were three supervisors. The first thing they did was to go on break. Within moments, the hillside was filled with sonorous snores. An hour later, a bell tinkled and the crew went to work, some carrying stopwatches to time their movements. (Union rules require that they make no more than 15 movements in a 60 second period, including yawns, blinks and scratches.) The workers peered through V’s formed by their index and middle fingers, crying out, “Viewshed!” from time to time. After what seemed like an eternity, they had identified 17 vistas on my hilltop which qualified for protection. There was a small problem, Utopia said. “Whereas, your house is blocking some of the views, it will have to be moved.” “This all seems a bit subjective,” I said.

George Gurley “That’s a demerit,” Utopia barked. “But…but,” I sputtered. “And that’s another one,” cried Utopia. Fifteen demerits would earn me a day in the pillory, where citizens would pelt me with rotten organic, locally grown, sustainable produce, he said. “It may surprise you to learn that we know what’s best for you,” he said. “People like you don’t make our job any easier. By the way, the county’s Happiness Index has shot up since we’ve taken charge of everyone’s life. So shut up and don’t ask questions.” After the scenic view search, the workers confiscated my weed eater, chain saw and tiller. “According to the provisions of the county’s energy independence ordinance, use of the gasoline engine has been prohibited,” Utopia declared. “We must prepare right now for the day when the world runs out of oil. So get acquainted with your shovel and hoe. It will improve the air quality and your own health.” Someone spotted the spray tank mounted on my four-wheeler. I was water-boarded on the spot and blurted out a confession: I had been spraying noxious weeds. “But the county will fine me if I don’t,” I said. “You can no longer spray without supervision and a license,” he said. “You might kill an endangered plant. And even noxious weeds are entitled to a humane and dignified death. The approved method is

gentle removal from the soil by hand, along with a non-denominational funeral service.” Not a stone may be moved, nor a blade of grass disturbed without a hearing, a permit, a wildlife impact statement and a waiting period of 18 years, he said. I got another demerit for asking if “wildlife” included the feral cats that prey upon my songbirds and the carpenter bees that are turning my barn into sawdust. Just then cries went up from within my house: “Shame! Scandalous!” Utopia’s inspectors had opened my refrigerator. Out went the bacon, the cheesecake and the baby back ribs. “Your meat eating days are over,” said Utopia. “No more high fructose corn syrup for you. You can subsist on nuts, roots and berries. Nightcrawlers and grasshoppers are a plentiful source of protein.” Utopia wrote up his report. My infestation of thorny hedge trees had been designated a “woodland.” A puddle of water had become a “wetland.” Before parting, Utopia delivered a brief oration. Polluting industries were to be replaced with crafts such as knitting and wood carving. The demand for hunters and gatherers would reduce the ranks of the unemployed. To address over-population, the county was going to introduce a cap and trade program to discourage people from having babies. A new law would require lights out at sunset to conserve electricity. “We must plan ahead for the day the sun burns out,” Utopia said. “And please stop referring to this piece of land as ‘my’ property,” he said. He invited me to take the new oath of allegiance to the county. Then he ordered me to practice self-criticism and to report to the pillory the following day. — George Gurley, a resident of rural Baldwin City, writes a regular column for the Journal-World.

Fair deal? To the editor: My wife and I own and operate Paisano’s Ristorante at 25th and Iowa. I am writing in regards to the development of the property at 27th and Iowa, into a proposed Olive Garden by M.D. Management, an out-of-town developer. My reasons for writing are obvious; we are certainly concerned with this potential development. We are also members of the Lawrence Originals, a group of 21 locally owned restaurants, representing over $21 million in sales revenue and well over 1,000 employees. The development company essentially is requesting approximately $600,000 in tax abatements over a 10-year period in order to build and lease an Olive Garden, under the Neighborhood Revitalization Act incentive. These savings will be passed on, in some degree, to the end user, Olive Garden, through lower lease payments, while the out-oftown developers recoup their money because they bought a piece of property at the height of the real estate bubble and that bubble has burst. Does that sound fair to you? Stephen R. Butland, Lawrence

2 teens die in separate accidents at lake CHENEY — A 16-year-old Wichita boy and 13-year-old girl from Mesa, Ariz., have died in separate accidents at southcentral Kansas’ Cheney Lake this holiday weekend. The Wichita Eagle reported Gabriel Salinas drowned Saturday afternoon after he waded past a roped-off swimming area. Park ranger Mike Satterlee says Salinas didn’t know how to swim and struggled when he stepped into a deep hole. His body was located about two hours later. On Friday, Nicole Whitney Smith died in a boating accident. Reno County Undersheriff Sheldon Stewart says she fell off her wakeboard and was struck by the boat pulling her. Stewart says she was dead when emergency workers arrived. Smith has been visiting relatives in the Wichita area.

On your mark, get set...

Tom Keegan

Golfing tips: the sequel Seven weeks ago, in an attempt to increase the quality of golf in Lawrence and thereby speed up play, I shared tips accumulated the past 40 years and suggested incorporating them all into one swing. Although the column no doubt enriched the golf experience of several local players, it wasn’t thorough enough, didn’t include nuances that apply to golfers of certain body types and mental-fortitude levels. These all have been attained since moving to Lawrence six years ago and should only be read by those with thick enough skin to handle the truth. The last thing anyone needs is an apologist. If after every horrendous shot a playing partner tells you, “That’s OK, you were just unlucky. Hit another one and we won’t count it,” don’t ever play with that person again. Confront your golf demons. Don’t deny their existence. Before moving to Lawrence, I never competed in a league, a four-ball match or an individual medal-play tournament, all of which I’ve come to enjoy in this great golf town. During those events, I’ve received tips I’ll share. At the start of the second day of a particularly enjoyable annual tournament, as we were leaving the putting clock, my partner slammed the brakes on the golf cart, turned to me and informed, “There’s a long history of people choking on Sunday in this tournament. The last thing we need you to do today is to fall apart. So if you feel yourself getting nervous, just let me know.” Later in the day, while digging my way to China with divots that faced left of third base, diagnostic advice was offered. “You’re moving your chin forward,” my partner informed. “Keep your chin still. That’s your panic move. You’re in a tournament, so you’re panicking. Half the battle is recognizing when you’re panicking. The other half is knowing what to do about it. You need to recognize the signs. If you think about it, your chest is probably tightening. Your throat probably feels like it’s closing up. You’re probably having a difficult time swallowing. It’s important to recognize the signs so that you’ll know you’re panicking.” I so badly wanted to feel tightness in my chest, swelling in my throat. Instead, nothing. I so badly wanted to blame my performance on choking because the alternative — a complete and utter lack of talent — was too depressing, too final a sentence. Oh well, any bad golfer is just a good tip away from improving. Lucky me, one was just around the corner. “They say you’re supposed to start your down swing with your hips,” he said. “That’s the right thing to do with an elastic guy like me, but for a real inflexible guy like you, it’s not the right thing. If you think about it, big guys who are your size and are good golfers, every one of them has an all-arms swing. You’re trying to use your body. It never works with real big guys.” The next summer, the night before a tournament, I informed my partner that I had the greens down pat, was putting really well and would not need any help reading them. “You might think you’re a good putter, but tomorrow, when your (sphincter) is this big (simulates the eye of a needle), you won’t be a good putter,” he said, so vividly seeing the future.

PARTICIPANTS LINE UP FOR THE START of the Tour of Lawrence’s Kansas University campus circuit race. Lawrence resident Joe Schmalz won the event on Saturday in Lawrence.

...race. Lawrence resident takes men’s title By Clark Goble Journal-World Sports Writer

After settling for second place in last year’s Tour of Lawrence Kansas University campus circuit race, Lawrence resident Joe Schmalz desperately wanted to seize the title Saturday. For a majority of the race, it appeared Schmalz, trailing Jonathan Jacob by over a minute with seven laps to go, would fall short for the second straight year. But thanks to a late charge headed by Elbowz Racing teammates Mat Stephens and Heath Blackgrove, Schmalz worked his way into

the lead on the second-to-last lap and held off the field for the victory. He was quick to point to his riding partners after the race, the secTOUR OF ond leg of the LAWRENCE Tour of Lawrence. “Heath rode What: Downtown like 10 men today,” Criterium Schmalz said. “He When: Noon today was keeping me Where: Ninth and calm every time I’d get excited. Massachusetts Every time we needed to do it, he was there covering stuff. It was brilliant.” The men’s professional riders

had to complete 14 laps of the 3.93mile course that started at Budig Hall, weaved through most of campus and finished back at Budig. Jacob held a big lead for most of the race, but fell off the pace toward the end, leaving the door open for Schmalz and his teammates. Schmalz grabbed the late lead on a stretch by Memorial Stadium and maintained tempo until the finish. When riding by the stadium, Schmalz noticed that none of the other riders in the main pack wanted to ride in front. He decided to JONATHAN JACOB LEADS a group (Joseph Schmalz behind in blue) in the seize the reins. KU campus circuit race. Schmalz made Please see TOUR, page 4B a late charge and won the event.


KU coach Self: Nix one-and-done rule By Gary Bedore

I’d say leave out of high school or stay three years in college.” — KU coach Bill Self

If Kansas University basketball coach Bill Self had his way, the NBA’s next collective bargaining agreement would include an alteration of the socalled “one-and-done rule.” It’s the rule that requires players to be at least 19 years old and one year removed from high school before they can enter the NBA Draft. This rule has led to a batch of players, including KU’s Xavier Henry and Josh Selby, attending college one year, then bolting for the pros. “I’d say leave (for NBA) out of high school or stay three years in

stay on campus for those who don’t declare for the draft following high school graduation. Kansas has had two players in “I don’t like what is in place the last two years bolt for the now. It’s not because we’ve had NBA after their first year: two one-and-dones the last two years. Some people have had more. I don’t think what we have is fair to the kid. We say, ‘Come here to get a degree and help us win, and in turn, when the time is right, we’ll support any decision you make.’ That’s what we’ll say whether it’s one year or two years. The mind-set some kids have coming in is they can be a Xavier Henry Josh Selby one-and-done guy. I can understand that. It’s the landscape of college,” said Self, who would where we live and what we do, settle for a two-year minimum but it’s not the way it should be.


“It should be kids go to school first, and after they go to school and the time is right, they should be able to jump. I think making them stay a minimum of two would def initely help that cause.” Self doesn’t begrudge those rare players with NBA-ready bodies and skills the right to make millions of dollars in lieu of college. “I wish there was some committee saying, ‘OK, if this kid is thought to be a certain pick, then he would be allowed to go,’” Self said. “There wouldn’t be bad decisions. Then after that, I wish Please see SELF, page 4B

It wasn’t that long ago that the former Wichita State standout spent most days of the year preparing his body for the grind of back-to-back days of baseball on an almost year-round

Ragan gets redemption with Daytona victory DAYTONA BEACH, FLA. (AP) — David Ragan earned the first Sprint Cup victory of his career Saturday night with a push from teammate Matt Kenseth that helped Ragan atone for one of the biggest gaffe’s of his young career. He might have won the seasonopening Daytona 500 when he lined up as the leader on a late restart in NASCAR’s season-opening event. But he was penalized for

passing too early, and the lifechanging victory instead went to Trevor Bayne. Now Ragan has his own win at Daytona International Speedway, albeit in the lesser of the races. That made little difference to the 25-year-old second-generation NASCAR driver. “Everybody kept talking about (the Daytona 500), I just kept trying to zero it out,” Ragan said.

Ragan could now find himself in contention for a berth in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship. The win pushed Ragan to 17th in the standings, and two spots in the Chase will go to the winningest drivers ranked between 11 and 20. “Not a better night to win. This is awesome,” Ragan said. Kenseth finished second to give Roush Fenway Racing a 1-2 sweep for Ford.

Joey Logano, who won his first Daytona race Friday night with a Nationwide Series victory, finished third in a Toyota for Joe Gibbs Racing. Kasey Kahne was fourth in a Toyota for Red Bull Racing and Kyle Busch was fifth for JGR. Jeff Gordon made a terrific laterace save to avoid a race-ending wreck and finished sixth in a Chevrolet for Hendrick Motorsports.

PETRA KVITOVA CELEBRATES defeating Russia’s Maria Sharapova in the ladies’ singles final on Saturday at Wimbledon.

Kvitova stuns Sharapova for crown WIMBLEDON, ENGLAND (AP) — One might reasonably have expected Petra Kvitova, not Maria Sharapova, to be betrayed by nerves in the Wimbledon final. This was, after all, Kvitova’s first Grand Slam championship match, while Sharapova already owned three major titles, including one from the All England Club. So Kvitova decided to pretend she was heading out on Centre Court to play in the fourth round. That mind-set worked. So, too, did nearly everything Kvitova tried once play began, particularly her big, flat left-handed groundstrokes that pushed Sharapova back on her heels. In a surprisingly lopsided final, Kvitova beat the higher-seeded, yet shakier, Sharapova, 6-3, 6-4, Saturday to win Wimbledon for her first Grand Slam trophy. “I was surprised how I was feeling on the court,” Kvitova said, “because I was focused only on the point and on the game and not on the final.” If there were those who wondered how the eighth-seeded Kvitova would handle the setting and the pressure, her coach did not. Indeed, David Kotyza had an inkling his new pupil possessed the right stuff to win titles shortly after they began working together about 2 1/2 years ago. That’s because he was wowed by the several pages of handwritten answers Kvitova supplied for a questionnaire he gave her back then — and has kept to this day. “I was really surprised about how she thinks about tennis, how clever she is. She told me her advantages, disadvantages, what she has to improve,” Kotyza said, then pointed a finger to his temple and added: “Her brain is a big advantage for this game.” When she was a kid growing up in Fulnek, Czech Republic — population: 6,000 — and practicing an hour or so after school each day, Kvitova didn’t count on becoming a professional tennis player. She simply wasn’t that good, yet. Clearly, she’s a quick study. Before Wimbledon in 2010, Kvitova’s career record on grass was 0-4. She is 16-2 on the slick surface since, including a run to the semifinals here last year before losing to Serena Williams. At 21, Kvitova is the youngest Wimbledon champion since — you guessed it — Sharapova was 17 in 2004. Kvitova is also the first Czech to win the tournament since Jana Novotna in 1998. Plus, Kvitova is only the third left-handed woman to win the grass-court Grand Slam tournament. The last was Martina Navratilova, who won her ninth Wimbledon title in 1990, a few months after Kvitova was born. “I’m thrilled for her. She played brave tennis, and she deserved to win. She was by far the better player,” said Navratilova, who was born in Czechoslovakia and sat near Novotna in the Royal Box on Saturday. “I don’t think this is the only time she’ll win here. It’s very exciting. A new star.”

CARLI LLOYD, CENTER, CELEBRATES SCORING in the United States’ 3-0 Women’s World Cup rout of Colombia on Saturday in Sinsheim, Germany.

U.S. women salute military, clobber Colombia SINSHEIM, GERMANY — Anyone can sign autographs or pose for photos. The U.S. women found a better way to say “thank you” to the American military members who turned their World Cup match into a home game. The U.S. advanced to the quarterfinals of the Women’s World Cup with a 3-0 rout of Colombia on Saturday, delighting a sellout crowd made up almost entirely of American fans. The team lined up for a military salute after Heather O’Reilly’s opening goal, and Megan Rapinoe grabbed a TV mic and sang “Born in the USA” after she scored. “The troops came out to practice the other day, which was a fantastic environment,” said Carli Lloyd, who scored the third goal. “We thought it would be good to salute them. It was fun, something different.” The two-time World Cup champions now play Sweden, one of two teams to beat them this year, Wednesday in Wolfsburg to determine the Group C winner. The Americans and Sweden each have six points, but the U.S. leads the group on goal differential and can claim the top spot with a victory or a tie. Colombia is a team on the rise, finishing fourth at the Under-20 World Cup last year. But this is its first World Cup appearance, and the youngsters were no match for the deeper, more experienced Americans. The U.S. harassed goalkeeper Sandra Sepulveda relentlessly, forcing her to work more in this game than some goalkeepers will work all tournament. She didn’t get much help from her backline, which was shredded by the speedy O’Reilly time and again. “It’s a growing experience,” said defender Nataly Arias, who was born and raised in the Washington, D.C., area. “It was their size, their speed. They’re all big, they’re all fast, they’re all agile.” And it could have been even worse for the Colombians. The Americans missed at least a half-dozen other chances, and had a whopping 27-12 advantage in shots. Abby Wambach missed so many chances she had little choice but to laugh at her misfortunes by the end of the game, and Rapinoe banged a shot off the crossbar. Colombia did get four shots on goal, with their best chance coming in the 54th minute. Orianica Velasquez came in as a substitute, immediately got possession and took a shot, but Hope Solo punched it away. “It’s a tough loss for us, obviously,” Arias said. “At the same time, I feel proud of what we did in this game.”

TOUR DE FRANCE Gilbert claims first stage MONT DES ALOUETTES, FRANCE — Philippe Gilbert won the first stage of the Tour de France on Saturday to take the yellow jersey, while defending champion Alberto Contador lost more than a minute because of a late crash. The Belgian Gilbert, who dazzled fans by winning three classics races in April, sped ahead from the pack in the final several hundred yards and kissed his jersey as he crossed the line. “It was the last 500 meters, I had a lead ... (and) Gilbert I went for it,” Gilbert said. “It was an extreme effort and I was able to take advantage.” Gilbert, who has notched 13 victories

between race and stage wins this year, had been a favorite to win the opening stage. He clocked 4 hours, 41 minutes, 31 seconds for the sun-baked 119-mile ride from La Barrede-Monts to Mont des Alouettes in the western Vendee region. Two-time Tour runner-up Cadel Evans of Australia was second, three seconds back — making him the best performer among the expected title contenders. Thor Hushovd of Norway was third, six seconds off the pace. The 2,131-mile race ends July 24 on Paris’ Champs-Elysees. It’s shaping up as a battle among riders like Contador and last year’s runner-up Andy Schleck of Luxembourg. Three-time champion Contador, a Spaniard, beat Schleck by just 39 seconds last year. However, they both ran into trouble toward the end of the stage on Saturday.

BASEBALL Jeter gets hit in rehab start TRENTON, N.J. — Derek Jeter took the first step in his return to the New York Yankees from a calf strain, going 1-for-2 with a walk and cleanly fielding five balls at shortstop in five innings for Double-A Trenton on Saturday. Jeter will play one more rehabilitation game with the Thunder on Sunday night and likely will be in the Yankees’ lineup Monday in Cleveland, where he will continue his pursuit of 3,000 hits. “The plan is to get him there Monday in Cleveland if everything goes right,” Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said. “Yeah, I’d think he’d play Monday.”

Rolling Along

NEWTOWN SQUARE, PA. — Before he even teed off, Rickie Fowler knew this was going to be a different day at the AT&T National. The course record already had been matched, with several other low rounds in progress at suddenly soft Aronimink Golf Club. One thought crossed his mind: Go time. That’s the message Fowler always puts on Twitter right before he plays, and off he went. He birdied six of his opening 10 holes — and missed two other chances inside 10 feet. He wound up with a 6-under 64 on Saturday and a share of the lead with Nick Watney, who set the course record with a 62 — shooting 27 on the back nine. That broke the record of 63 that Steve Marino had about 20 minutes earlier. Marino had matched the record that Chris Kirk posted about an hour before that. Fowler and Watney were at 9-under 201, one shot ahead of 36-hole leader K.J. Choi (69).

Lu, Cook 1-2 at Champions BLAINVILLE, QUEBEC — Taiwan’s Lu Chiensoon shot a 9-under 63 to match the course record and take a one-stroke lead over John Cook after the second round of the Champions Tour’s Montreal Championship. Andrew Hartsock’s blog about commuting by bike

“It was a gamble, but it worked out great,” Schmalz said. His family was on hand to enjoy the victory — his mother, father, sister and all his grandparents included. “It’s great to win it for them,” Schmalz said. Gwen Inglis, Lakewood, Colo., won the f ive-lap women’s professional race. “I think with the heat, everybody knew that they had to conserve enough to have enough to finish the last two laps strong,” Inglis said.


we had the baseball rule (players must stay three years if they don’t turn pro out of high school). “In football, you have to


“That’s a tough call,” Hooper said. “As a manager, I’m definitely more mentally drained, and my body feels drained after a lot of ballgames because I’m in every pitch. When I played, if I wasn’t due up that inning, I could kind of get away from it for a second and relax, whereas when I’m managing, I’m so focused, and I’m in every pitch. I love it. I love what I’m doing, and I hope I get to do it the rest of my life.” Whether that’s in Wichita remains to be seen. Hooper has turned down coaching offers from minor-league teams affiliated with Major League Baseball and says he’s intrigued by the idea of coaching college baseball. For now, though, managing the Wingnuts and spending his


Inglis decided to push for the lead on a downhill stretch just before the end of the fourth lap. She held off Lauren Robertson and Carrie Cash Wootten by 28 seconds. Inglis finished second in last year’s race behind teammate Megan Hottman. Since Hottman wasn’t racing in this year’s event, the title was on Inglis’ mind. “I knew I had to ride strong,” Inglis said. The Tour of Lawrence will wrap up today with the downtown criterium. The races start at noon and run through the afternoon. The women’s professionals will start at 4 p.m., and the men’s professionals will cap the event at 6:30.

A PACK OF SPRINTERS, AGES 16-18, ACCELERATES to the finish of the 100-meter dash in the USATF Missouri Valley Junior Olympic Trials track meet on Saturday at Lawrence High.

stay three years no matter what, but football is also a different sport. What 18year-old would be mature enough to play in the NFL? In basketball you could have g uys that come through every now and then that could do that, a LeBron (James) or Kobe (Bryant) or whomever.

If a kid is able to go and do that and take care of himself and his family, do that. If he can’t, go to school and stay in school,” added Self, who indicated he was “proud” of those Jayhawks who left early for making sure they left KU in good academic standing. An alteration of the oneand-done rule would also

help coaches assemble their rosters. “It (staying 2-3 years) would change the whole dynamics of recruiting,” Self said, “because you won’t be trying to sign the next guy to replace that guy (one-and-done) when you don’t even know if that guy is leaving or not. You’ll have a better feel for it.”

days close to his wife, Lindsey, and their two daughters, Lucy, 6, and Laney, 3, is a little slice of heaven. “I’m lovin’ it. Lovin’ it,” Hooper said. “This is my third year here now, and I’m just loving being at home. This is good daddy time that I’ll never be able to get back.” As for the baseball side, Wichita has proven to be the perfect place for Hooper to spread his wings and finetune his coaching chops. Blessed during his playing career with the opportunity to spend time around some of baseball’s brightest minds — Detroit Tigers manager Jim Leyland, whom he played for in 2005 and 2006, and Wichita State skipper Gene Stephenson, to name two — Hooper has incorporated some of what he learned from them as well as the countless baseball lessons he learned throughout his life into his own special style of managing. His role with the

Wingnuts affords him the freedom to feel comfortable doing so. “I love the level because I get to bring in who I want, play who I want, and if somebody doesn’t go about their business the right way or the way I want, then we can move on,” Hooper said. Every once in a while, Hooper the manager misses being Hooper the player so much that he’ll hop onto the diamond to field ground balls or pick up a bat. “I do,” he said, emphasizing that the hands-on approach almost always happens as a teaching tool. “It’s fun. We’ll jump into batting practice every once in a while just to get some hacks in.” Prodded for a tall tale or two about his batting-cage prowess, Hooper stayed true to his humble roots. “I was never a home run guy,” he said. “Put the ball in play and run was my game.” When the Wingnuts and T-

Bones square off tonight and again at 7:05 p.m. Monday — an award-winning fireworks display will follow both games — Hooper’s mental focus again will be put to the test. Dozens of friends and family members are expected to attend at least one of the games, and there’s no doubt they’ll all be keeping their eyes fixed on the guy wearing the No. 1 Wingnuts uniform. Does Hooper expect the extra attention to bring added pressure? “Joy is the word I’d use,” he said. “Any time I can have people there supporting me and enjoying what I do, that’s a pleasure for me. It’s just like when I played. You’re always excited to go back close to home and represent yourself and your hometown. I’m proud to say I’m from Lawrence and always will be. That’ll always hold a special place in my heart.”

Somewhere in the blur of whirring wheels and bright jerseys of this weekend’s third Tour of Lawrence, Chris Roettger hopes for the seeds of a revolution. The St. Louis-based racer has her fingers crossed that watching the races will inspire some of those women to hop on a bike. “The ratio of male to female racing cyclists, so competitive racers, last time I checked is right around 90 to 10. So, for every 90 men, there are 10 women,” says Roettger, a category 2 rider. “We’re trying to get more women in the sport. And not just on the competitive side, but on the recreational end of it, too. For some reason there’s just fewer women who ride bikes. We can’t figure out why.” Indeed, race official Susan Henderson says the event projected about 600 riders, and she expected a ratio of 90 percent men to 10 percent women, which mirrors USA Cycling’s numbers. There were six separate races for the men and two for the women in Saturday’s circuit race and today’s criterium. Roettger and other female racers agree that growing races like Lawrence’s are the perfect place to introduce

What are your current favorite fashion trends? I love hats and V-necks and tanks in summer. Also, I love worn clothes, clothes that have personality and look a little seasoned. What are your least favorite fashion trends? When sweatpants get cut off into shorts, it looks a little silly.

’ve never been much of a runner. Ironically, I have lots of friends who run. You know the type: Early to bed, early to rise, they bound out the door, trot around town or trail, only to circle back home, 500 expended calories later, in endorphininduced euphoria. “That was a good run,” they’ll say. I can honestly say that I’ve never uttered those five words in that particular order in 55 years. Why? Because I enjoy slacking off when I exercise. And the whole idea of running is sort of counterintuitive to slacking. I’ve never been much of a gym rat, either. Oh, I’ve paid my fair share of the health club memberships. Induced by ads that promise “No initiation fee” or “First month FREE,” I signed up with the highest self-expectations: “Sure $35 a month is a lot of money, but if I hit the gym at least five times a week, it’s only $1.59 a visit. That’s a dollar for

Two or three weeks into the 12month contract, I lose that getinto-bikini-shape enthusiasm when one of three things happen. I: 1.) Strain a muscle attempting to lift something heavier than I should. 2.) Develop a crippling aversion to mirrors. 3.) Slack off. That’s why I became a Water Warrior. Water Warriors is a deep-water aerobics class offered by

Cathy Hamilton

Lawrence Parks and Recreation. The description in the catalog read: “Classes are high impact without high impact on your joints. The workouts use the water for resistance to increase cardiovascular endurance and muscle tone. No swimming skills necessary.” “How bad could it be?” I said smugly to the guy processing my enrollment. “The hardest part will be rolling out of bed at 6 a.m.

That, and putting on my bathing suit.” I chose not to linger on that last thought. On the first day, I drove at dawn to the outdoor pool and shuffled over to the diving area. My fellow warriors were already in the water, bobbing up and down thanks to the buoyant belts they were wearing. They were a jovial bunch in all shapes, sizes and ages. I couldn’t wait to join them. Our enthusiastic teacher demonstrated the exercises on deck where we could see her. “Aha! But she can’t see us.” I said to myself. “How will she know how hard I’m working when my limbs are under water? I can slack off whenever I want!” My body felt wonderful in the drink. Gone were the lower back pain and hip flexor tightness, leftover from a pre-vacation “accident” in the traditional gym. I pumped my paddles under the Please see BOOMER, page 6B

It was a workout, to be sure, but totally doable with no threat of injury or, more importantly, mirrors. And when I got tired, well, I slacked off. By the third class, I was totally in the swim, performing each exercise like Esther Williams. I looked forward to cruising happily through the summer, raising my heart rate and toning muscles without breaking a sweat. Then, as if she could read my mind, the teacher yells, “Pick a partner,” while toss-

SAN FRANCISCO — If you got a telephone call from a stranger asking why you hadn’t gotten a recommended health screening, what would it take to keep you from hanging up, or better yet, committing to getting the screening? A growing number of companies think they have the answer. The market for persuading people to do more or to do things differently to maintain or improve their health is heating up, and it seems to be equal parts art and science. “If you make assumptions about why people don’t do things, you’re destined to fail,” said Dr. Jan Berger, chief medical officer of Silverlink Communications, a healthcare technology company in Burlington, Mass. She offered herself as an example. “If I get a caller who says, ‘Is this Mr. Berger?’ I don’t have the time for them.” The movement is known as consumer engagement in health-care circles, and companies from major insurers to niche specialty outfits are ramping up business as the health-reform law changes the landscape. Starting in 2014, the law that President Obama signed in March of last year will prohibit commercial insurers from rejecting people with pre-existing medical conditions. It also will force them and Medicare to cover preventive care at 100 percent if they don’t already. Private health insurers seem to have gotten the message. About 95 percent of members surveyed by the trade group America’s Health Insurance Plans said they offer health coaching to people who typically don’t have

She instructed us to tether ourselves together at the backs of our belts, swim to the center of the pool, facing opposite ends, and wait. “Go!” she finally cried, and off we “ran” to the side of the pool in a back-to-back tug-of-war (think human tractor pull) attempting to drag our partner behind us like so much freight. (Figure of speech. No offense to my partner.) After two minutes that seemed like two eons, the teacher yelled, “You’re too nice! Be merciless! Drag your partner! Nobody stops until three people reach the side of the pool.” “Nobody stops until

wha…!!!?” My pulse started to race, my breathing quickened. Then, my inner warrior kicked into high gear. I started dog paddling like Lassie, struggling to drag a drowning Timmy to shore. “Must … get … to … the side …” I panted. My partner tried valiantly to swim against me, but my motivation was insurmountable. I strove not to be a winner, but to earn the right to be a slacker. In the end, isn’t that the whole point of working out? — Cathy Hamilton is a public relations and marketing consultant, author of 16 books and blogger at Contact her at

professional lives and family lives healthy and flowing — it’s no different for a pro racer like Roettger’s teammate, Carrie Cash-Wootten. Not only is Cash-Wootten a category 1 pro racer, but she’s also a spokeswoman for the cycling outreach program Pedal the Cause, as well as the mother of the aforementioned twins. She says that though it’s tough on her, she knows that being upfront about her life is helpful information. “It gives them somebody to identify with. You find so many of the pros, they don’t have a job, but then they train all the time. But then they don’t have any other obligations either. A lot of women see them and think, ‘I’m not like that. She doesn’t have anything else to do,’ ” says Cash-Wootten, winner of last year’s street sprints and category 1/2 criterium. “But the more women we see in the sport that are multifaceted in their lives as well as what they enjoy doing in their sport, the more women that will be involved.” That vein of understanding also is important to the sport in general. Watching a race in person was exactly how Roettger got involved with cycling, even though her favorite event, the criterium, had been described to her before she’d seen it. “I didn’t even know it existed until I was 30. As soon as I found it, I said, ‘I have to do that,’” says Roettger. “It looked super fun. The criterium, they close the city streets, right? It’s just people doing laps, kind of like NASCAR. I couldn’t believe that I didn’t know it existed. As soon as I saw it, I started racing, basically. And I had no riding experience. I didn’t have a bike or anything.” Topeka’s Catherine Walberg also found the sport after going nearly three decades without it. “I was a bookworm until I was 29. I mean, I hadn’t even touched an endurance sport. It didn’t even cross my mind,” says Walberg, who has raced for 18 years, won two national championships in master’s cyclocross and


major health problems but want to tune up their habits. The same portion invite people with chronic illness to join their plan’s disease-management program, and about 92 percent offer incentives to encourage behavior such as curbing tobacco use, eating a balanced diet, getting regular physical activity and keeping up with recommended doctor’s visits and preventive care. Even if out-of-pocket costs are minimal, money is only one factor in trying to understand why people may not obtain the medical services that could keep them out of harm’s way. Some potentially life-saving screenings such as colonoscopies can be particularly unpleasant, and no amount of rational evidence may convince someone who dreads the prospect of doing the necessary bowel preparation before the procedure. But there are ways around such objections, and some can be surprisingly subtle. After starting a telephonebased program for UnitedHealthcare in late 2009 aimed at upping the colorectal cancer screening rate of ethnic minorities, who are more likely to die from colon cancer, Silverlink Communications found a 56 percent increase in the number of people who received one of the four recommended types of screenings. Silverlink made automated phone calls to nearly 60,000 health-plan members using 70 different variations on the theme of asking eligible people why they hadn’t gotten screened yet and offering tips to help them overcome whatever issue was holding them back. Like a diplomatic but pushy parent, it also asked whether and when the person

intended to get the screening. In May, health insurer Aetna launched a text-messaging program for members with diabetes, which Silverlink developed. Consumer engagement takes three basic forms at Health Dialog, a Bostonbased health-care analytics, care-management and decision-support company that works with health plans, selfinsured employers and health-care providers. The company aims to help people with chronic conditions stay compliant with their drug and other therapy regimens. Health Dialog does predictive modeling to see which people are likely to face gaps in care, have trouble adhering to their medication regimens or are heading toward surgery. Its health coaches, which include nurses, educators, respiratory therapists and pharmacists, are trained to make phone calls likely to put people at ease. “If you’re not sensitive on that first outbound call, you can’t get that engagement because you can’t start the conversation,” he said. Health Dialog’s coaches don’t use scripts, which tend to turn people off, Wennberg said. “When you have a straight script, people lose interest. It comes across as not real.” When asked what share of call recipients become hostile when they pick up the phone, he said the number is “shockingly small.” “Our opt out rate — people who say ’Please don’t call me’ — is less than half a percent. The flip side is the positive engagement — 65 percent to 80 percent of people we make an outbound call to start an ongoing relationship with a health coach.”

forcefully when measuring your waist or chest. ● Look straight ahead. Stand tall with your feet together — or slightly apart if you’re measuring your thighs — preferably in front of a full-length mirror so you can see the tape’s position. Don’t slouch down to look at your reading. For the most accurate results, ask a family member or friend to help. ● Take monthly measurements. Don’t measure too often: readings can change from day to day — and even at different points in a single day — based on what you eat and drink. Pick one day a month and measure yourself first thing in the morning. If you’re female, don’t schedule this just before or during your

period, when you tend to be more bloated. ● Measure at the right place. For your chest, measure around the largest spot, generally at the nipple line. Waist: just above your hipbones, roughly at your belly button. Hips: the widest part of your buttocks. Arms: about three inches above your elbow, at the largest point. Thighs: the biggest part of your upper legs.

There’s a certain poetic justice in the fact that “On the Road” is one of Apple’s top-grossing book apps. Released June 18, the iPad app for Jack Kerouac’s landmark novel — featuring a variety of enriched content, including commentary, maps, audio recordings and other ephemera — hit No. 4 on Apple’s list June 21, ahead of the Bible and T.S. Eliot’s “The Waste Land.” That’s a testament to the power of the digital project, but also to the novel, which has occupied a visionary place in the culture since it was first published in 1957. (The novel has been adapted for a new movie directed by Walter Salles and starring Sam Riley, Garrett Hedlund and Kristen Stewart.) The decision to bring out “On the Road” as an app has a lot to do with this iconic status, explains Stephen Morrison, editor in chief of Penguin Books, reached by phone at his Manhattan office. “We were looking for a book with enough resonance,” Morrison says, “as well as enough supplemental material from which we could learn how to curate a literary app.” The key word there is “learn,” which is what all of us, publishers and writers and readers, must do now as the publishing industry increasingly comes to terms with the digital age. We need to learn how to use the digital space as a vessel, as a container, how to produce and interact with apps and electronic texts that feel like books, yet also reflect the possibilities of technology. “On the Road” aspires to all of this, functioning both as an e-book and also as a source of ancillary information. Open the app, and you’ll find a home screen with several subject areas: “The Book,” “The Author,” “The Trip,” “Publication” and “The Beats.” The first, and most important, of these sections features the text of Kerouac’s novel, which has been designed to match the feel of a print book. “We were very conscious,” Morrison

“ON THE ROAD” AUTHOR JACK KEROUAC, CIRCA 1956. Kerouac’s landmark 1957 novel was released on June 18 as an iPad app.

We were looking for a book with enough resonance as well as enough supplemental material from which we could learn how to curate a literary app.” — Stephen Morrison, editor in chief of Penguin Books notes, “of page layouts. We wanted to see what would read the best, to make the technology enhance and not distract.” To that end, there are no direct links in the novel, just light blue tabs on the left side of the page to signify the presence of notes. Touch one and a sidebar appears, featuring material on characters, locations, settings, historical details — bits of context that help to open up the book. That’s part of the idea, Morrison points out, to reflect the fact that “we’re in a moment where everyone wants context; we’re constantly Googling this and that.” What sets the “On the Road” app apart, however, is that so much of the context it offers is exclusive, drawn from the archives of the publisher and from the Kerouac estate. “On the Road” was first released by Viking, now a division of Penguin, and the publisher has released numerous editions of this

and other Kerouac works over the last half-century. All that is reflected in the “Publication” section of the app, which features odd bits and pieces, including the original 1953 internal memorandum on the novel from editor Malcolm Cowley (“I think it is the great source document of life among the beat or hip generation,” he writes), as well as a letter from Pat McManus, Viking’s publicity director, to Kerouac, suggesting an article for Harper’s or the now defunct Saturday Review to help focus reader attention on the book. This is great stuff — not least because it shows us that the more things change, the more they remain the same. McManus’ letter could have been written by any contemporary publicist, and Cowley’s enthusiasm is tempered by his concerns over the publishability of the novel, parts of which, he worries, “would get the book suppressed for obscenity.”

SACRAMENTO , C ALIF . — Heard any good books lately? If so, you likely fit the profile of the audiobook fan as sketched from national research compiled by the Audio Publishers Association. The New Jersey-based trade group is “the voice of the audiobook industry.” If you’re a regular listener, you’re probably a passionate reader (15 titles in the past year) who uses audiobooks to squeeze more books into your busy day. You’re better-educated and wealthier than nonlisteners, and you’re a bit younger (median age of 48 compared with 51). Your preferences in genres parallel those of print-book readers: mystery/thriller/suspense, best-sellers, general fiction and nonfiction. Unabridged audiobooks, in which the source material has not been condensed, are more popular than abridged, even though they cost more. The audiobooks arena is vast and complex, with a lengthy list of publishers and other invested companies producing, wholesaling, retailing, distributing and marketing audiobooks to a diverse and eager audience. This week concludes national Audiobook Month, a good time to

remember that “spoken word” could be found in libraries and schools as far back as the 1930s (the visually impaired and children were the main markets). But it wasn’t until the 1980s that the publishing industry discovered the profit potential of recording and marketing books to the mainstream public and to libraries. Audiobooks first appeared on tape cassettes (now nearly extinct) and then moved to the present-day compact disc. In recent years, the tech-savvy 18to-24 crowd has discovered audiobooks via digital downloads — a potential threat to the traditional audiobook industry, though CD audiobooks remain the backbone of the industry, partly because of massive sales to libraries. An estimated 10,000 audiobook titles appeared last year (compared with 316,480 traditional print titles), and sales totaled about $900 million in 2009, the latest year for which figures are available. Yet a full 95 percent of published books never see the inside of a recording studio. Why? “Do you really want an audiobook of the latest math text?” said Janet Benson, vice president of audiobook retailer Audio Editions and outgoing president of the APA.

One of the major players is It’s the Netflix of downloadable digital audiobooks, a site where members can rent from more than 60,000 book titles in all genres. Downloads account for a bit more than 30 percent of all audiobook sales, according to the APA. The mobility and versatility (plus improved sound fidelity) of audiobooks are big pluses over print and electronic books. Commuters listen to audiobooks in their cars and on public transportation. Multi-taskers can hear a best-seller while gardening, walking the dog, exercising or making dinner. “I have a friend who swears she wouldn’t have a clean house if she didn’t have audiobooks,” said Benson. Then there’s the sense of comfort that comes from listening to a trusted narrator read a story to us. That’s the unique part of the audiobook experience not found on any e-reader or on any paper page, though some publishers are adding multimedia “bonus content” to e-book downloads in the form of video and sound. Word-of-mouth recommendations can cause a title to catch fire, but audiobooks aren’t cheap. New CD

audiobooks average $20 to $45, while some CD sets based on books from Alist authors (such as Stephen King’s “Under the Dome”) can reach $80, even though they may be from an author’s backlist of previously published books. Even older or slower-moving titles on CD go for $10 to $15, making digital downloads look attractive at $6 to $20. Because the cost of producing an audiobook starts at $5,000 and can rapidly move into the tens of thousands, publishers want some assurance they’ll make a profit in the long run. That’s why most fiction audiobooks are made from titles by top-tier authors. Also found in audiobook sections of bookstores are live performances (humorist David Sedaris comes to mind), and self-help and how-to titles, memoirs and biographies — all popular. One of the major players is, a subsidiary of It’s the Netflix of downloadable digital audiobooks, a site where members can rent from more than 60,000 book titles in all genres. “Our members perceive Audible as an addictive habit and a service rather than the unit-based experience that books are,” said senior editor Matthew Thornton.

Lawrence Lithography Workshop launching special exhibit By Sarah Aylward Special to the Journal-World

In 1979, lithographer and print master Mike Sims opened shop on the 700 block of Massachusetts Street with the goal of collaborating with artists to produce hand-printed lithographs of original artwork. The process can be lengthy, depending on the complexity of the project. But despite the time-intensive aspect of the work, the Lawrence Lithography Workshop, which is now based in Kansas City at 20th and Tracy Avenue, has built an impressive collection from their collaborative work with nationally known artists. Prints from this collection will be exhibited at the Belger Arts Center, 2100 Walnut St. in Kansas City, Mo., until Oct. 7. The art center is an ideal venue, as Sims now currently runs his workshop out of property owned by Belger Cartage Service Inc. Sims, who taught lithography and drawing at Kansas University from 1971 to 1978, made several moves to locales such as Chicago and El Paso, Texas, before moving his shop to Kansas City. “I moved here in 2001, with the help and encouragement of the Belger Foundation,” Sims says. Mo Dickens, gallery assistant at the arts center, says

Special to the Journal-World

“FOR DOROTHEA,” by Kansas University professor Roger Shimomura, will be among images on display for a special collection by the Lawrence Lithography Workshop on display at the Belger Arts Center in Kansas City until Oct. 7. this recognition for Sims is significant. “I don’t think the locals are familiar with what Mike does. Artists fly in from all over to work with him,” he says. Sims’ recognition throughout the art community though, stretches far

and wide. “I was in a gallery this weekend in Montana,” says Dickens, “they had three prints by Akio Takamori that were done in Kansas City at the workshop.” In fact, Sims and the workshop staff have collaborated with many well-known

artists. Included in the exhibition opening will be prints made in collaboration with Lawrence-based Roger Shimomura, William T. Wiley of California and Kansas City-based Peregrine Honig, who recently was named first runner-up on the Bravo TV show “Work of Art.” In addition, a special set of prints by the late Luis Jimenez of New Mexico, who died as a result of injuries sustained from an accident in his studio while creating a sculpture for the Denver International Airport, will be included. “We’re going to go ahead and show the trial proofs,” says Dickens, referring to Jimenez’s work. “They’re not as Luis would have finally exhibited them, but we wanted to show the public what he was working on when he passed.” Other artists’ work will be included as well. Among them, Nick Bubash of Pittsburgh, Tom Huck of St. Louis, Gesine Janzen of Montana State University faculty and others are expected to be in attendance for the opening. The exhibit will reflect the wide and diverse range of artists who travel to Kansas City for the expertise afforded them by Sims and his workshop staff. “Our shop is pretty eclectic. Some of the prints from the show will be from the early years of the shop when

EXHIBIT DETAILS What: An art exhibit spanning more than 30 years of the Lawrence Lithography Workshop, which was founded in Lawrence in 1979 and eventually moved to Kansas City in 2001. When: Show runs from July 1 until Oct. 7. Hours are 10 a.m.-4 p.m. WednesdayFriday, noon-4 p.m. Saturday. Where: Belger Arts Center, 100 Walnut St., Kansas City, Mo. For more information: Visit www.belgerartscenter. org.

it was in Lawrence. Other prints in the show will be more recent. It’s going to be interesting,” Sims says. The shop, he explains, handles two types of business. The first is contracted printing, in which an artist will hire the workshop for a fee to gain access to the tools, materials and expertise needed to create prints of their work. The artist then acts as self-publisher for the edition, or collection of the created prints. On occasion a third-party printer, such as a museum or gallery, who will back the artist and make a profit off sales from the printed edition, will hire the workshop.

The workshop also acts as publisher as well. Upon invitation, an artist will work in the shop, and the Lawrence Lithography Workshop will publish the resulting prints. “We absorb all the costs of making the prints, and then we market the prints ourselves to make profit and pay the artist out of those sales or with a percentage of the printed edition,” Sims says. The collaboration process for creating such prints takes several stages. First, the artist must draw directly upon lithograph stones or plates. Then the printmakers use the marks made by the artists to create an original print, made by hand. “We don’t do any reproduction work. This isn’t photomechanical printing or off-set printing,” Sims says. Whether you are familiar with lithography or not, the wide-range of styles and aesthetics are sure to offer something to your liking. “I think people will be interested to see prints executed from very traditional black-and-white lithography to fairly complex multicolor, multimedia prints with a combination of woodcut and lithograph pieces,” Sims says. “The whole emphasis is on the fact that all of these prints were done with a classic lithographic medium by hand.”

A VISITOR looks at photographs by Chinese artist Ai Weiwei during a preview of an exhibit at the Asia Society in New York on Wednesday. More than 200 photographs of New York City taken by Ai Weiwei in the 1980s and early ‘90s are being shown at the exhibition. Ai was recently released after nearly three months in detention in China for speaking out against the government.

Ai Weiwei’s early photos in NYC exhibition NEW YORK — An exhibition of more than 200 photographs by Ai Weiwei chronicles New York City in the 1980s and early ‘90s when the recently detained Chinese activist artist lived there before he won international acclaim as a conceptual artist. It is the first time that the “New York Photographs” series is being shown outside of China, the Asia Society said of the exhibition that opened at its museum on Wednesday. It runs through Aug. 14. Ai was recently released after nearly three months in detention in China for speaking out against the government. The 227 black-and-white images from 1983 to 1993 were taken when Ai lived in New York’s East Village section. They document the area’s flourishing avant-garde scenes, including poetry readings and riots in Tompkins Square Park, as well as other parts of the city, and feature self-portraits of the artist and other renowned figures. One photo captures beat poet Allen Ginsberg and American photographer Robert Frank looking at a document. The photographs were selected by the artist, who remains in China, from his archive of 10,000 images, the society said. “These photographs are a poignant and powerful chronicle of Ai’s artistic vision and emerging political

Ai attended New York’s Parsons School of Design and lived in the city for more than a decade. He has earned huge sums selling his work at auctions and through galleries. In February, a 100kilogram pile of handmade porcelain sunflower seeds he commissioned for a show in London sold for more than $550,000 at a Sotheby’s auction.

He was detained April 3 after disappearing from the Beijing airport and was released June 22. He has declined interviews since then, saying the terms of his bail prohibit it. In early May, his “Circle of Animals/Zodiac Heads” of 12 animals heads rising from the Pulitzer Fountain in Manhattan — his first public sculpture installation — was unveiled by New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who said Ai’s courage to speak out demonstrated “the indomitable desire for freedom that is inside every human being.” Chinese authorities have said that though Ai was released, he is technically still under investigation for at least a year and could be brought in for further questioning at any time.

LOS ANGELES — You’ve seen that painting before but can’t remember: Is it Manet or Monet? Once again, when it comes to the searchable world, Google wants to supply the answer. The team behind Google Goggles, the smartphone application that among other things lets users take a photograph of a bottle of wine to find out whether it’s worth $10 or $100, has partnered with the Getty Museum to provide information on hundreds of paintings from its permanent collection. Google Goggles is at base a visual search engine that is activated not by typing in key phrases but by taking a picture on your smartphone of the object (be it a wine bottle label or book or historic landmark) in question. They call it a “visual query.” Now Getty visitors using the program can take pictures of paintings that interest them to bring up links to information, starting with content prepared by the museum. More effective with two than three dimensions, Google Goggles already recognizes some photographs and paintings from other museums — including world-famous artworks the database has picked up by crawling the Internet. But this is the first partnership by which a museum has provided images and prepared content for this specific use. The Getty has supplied information on the artist and artwork for about 300 paintings. About half of those have audio snippets as well. Google Goggles product manager Shailesh Nalawadi, whose engineering team is based in the technology giant’s Santa Monica, Calif., office, says they wanted to start local. “We always had the museum use-case in mind,” he says, “and because the engineering team is here in Los Angeles, we wanted to do it with an L.A. institution.” “When we sit at lunch in our Google cafeteria here, we can look out and see the Getty,” he adds. Maria Gilbert, a senior content developer at the Getty Museum, says the new application “does not replace any existing technology” at the museum. Rather, it’s meant to be another choice for visitors who would rather not spend $5 on traditional audio guides or spend the time to type key phrases into Web browsers to access online information. Of course, the museum still has wall labels identifying

The Getty has supplied information on the artist and artwork for about 300 paintings. About half of those have audio snippets as well. Manet’s “Rue Mosnier With Flags” or Monet’s “Rouen Cathedral,” but Gilbert points out that the new application has the advantage of letting you save and read information after the visit. It will also translate written materials like wall labels that you photograph into a lang uage of your choice. She says the project was done at no cost to the Getty, because it essentially involved repurposing existing visitor and website content. Earlier this year, Google launched a more ambitious m u s e u m i n i t i a t ive : T h e Google Art Project offers users a virtual tour of 17 museums across nine count r i e s a n d t h e p owe r t o zoom in and magnify any inch of more than 1,000 artworks.

Nalawadi says that project “is a separate but related” initiative, “part of a broader effort at Google to work with museums and other cultural institutions because they share the same goal of making art discoverable and bringing it into the hands of end users.” Why wasn’t the Getty included in that initiative? “I was not involved in that decision but I’m sure we hope to work with them on that as well.” He did, however, confirm that he is in talks with “quite a few museums” to bring more images into the Google Goggles database.

Brownies like today’s Disney characters By Terry Kovel

Special to the Journal-World

THIS NORWAY SPRUCE has Cytospora, indicated by interior browning and white resin on branches infected with the fungus.

Trees showing stress this year from weather, pests I love the majestic spruce tree as much as anyone, with its short, spiky needles and nearly perfect pyramidal form. The colors of spruce are pleasing as well, from the deep greens of Norway and Serbian spruce to the silvery hues of various cultivars of Blue spruce, including Black Hills spruce. Spruce trees are not always happy in northeast Kansas, though, and this year is especially tough. Thankfully, the stress these trees are exhibiting is not some horrifying tree disease. Instead, in most cases, spruce trees are simply suffering from a combination of minor pest problems and environmental factors. Will spruce trees recover? I hope so, but predicting tree health is right up there with predicting the weather. Experts can look at a broad range of factors and probabilities, but there are few 100 percent guarantees. Needles of spruce trees that have turned brown will not turn green again. Branches that have defoliated are unlikely to produce new needles. Trees are resilient survivors, though, so trees that are showing only minimal damage may pull through. Plant pathologists at Kansas State University attribute many of the problems to last year’s dry fall season and the extremely low winter temperatures. In spruce’s native habitat, snow cover often insulates the ground, providing a sort of protective blanket. Many spruce trees have heavy infestations of spider mites that have gone unnoticed in years with more favorable weather conditions. To check for spider mites, hold a sheet of clean white paper under a branch and tap the branch gently a few times. If mites are present, they will appear as tiny moving specks on the paper. Two species of spider mites can affect spruce. The spruce spider mite is active in cool, wet periods. The two-spotted spider mite is active in hot, dry conditions. Trees may be affected by one or both species. Spider mites damage trees by sucking chlorophyll out of individual plant cells. Their continued feeding leads to a yellow or white speckling known as stippling. Mites can often be controlled by simply washing them from the plant with a hard stream of water (use a highpressure nozzle on a hose). Miteinfested trees should be monitored closely, though and re-treated as necessary as additional eggs hatch. There are also a variety of both organic and synthetic pesticides labeled for control of spider mites on spruce.

YELLOWING in spruce trees like this blue spruce can be associated with spider mite damage, as is losing needles, which could be from the mites or from overall stress.

Another major problem for spruce is called Cytospora canker. Cytospora is a fungus, albeit a weak one, that typically only infects branches that are already wounded in some way. The disease is worse on trees that are suffering from weather and site-related stress. On Cytospora-infected spruce trees, a few lower limbs typically die back first, then the disease progresses through the tree. Cytospora cankers are visible but may be hard to identify to an untrained eye. Look for sunken or discolored areas on twigs. Sometimes sticky white resin will be evident where it has leaked from the tree at infection sites. Cytospora takes many years to progress through a tree and causes substantial damage. Because the fungus is protected by the wood itself, the only recommended control is to keep the trees growing as healthy as possible so they can better withstand the disease.

In all cases, branches that have defoliated and/or died back can be removed from the tree. One other factor is affecting spruce in some situations. A brand new herbicide, released this past spring for broadleaf weed control in lawns, is believed to be the cause of damage in some landscapes. Spruce affected by the herbicide may exhibit rapid and extreme browning of new growth. Other symptoms are still being determined. If you use a lawn care service and are seeing problems with spruce trees, you may want to talk to your lawn care professional to determine if this new product might be a factor. The herbicide is called Imprelis. DuPont, the manufacturer, notes that they have observed “unfavorable symptoms in trees on properties that have not been treated with a herbicide,” but they are doing a full investigation to understand what role the herbicide might be playing. If your spruces are suffering and Imprelis was used on your property, please contact me in hopes that we can learn more through each affected site. Our horticulture hotline can also confirm spider mites and Cytospora canker, or help you get to the root of whatever your spruce might be suffering. — Jennifer Smith is the Horticulture Extension Agent for K-State Research and Extension in Douglas County.

In the days before Disney, many imaginary sprites that excited children's imaginations could be found in books. In 1881, Palmer Cox wrote an illustrated story about a group of characters called "Brownies" for Wide Awake magazine. Brownies were imaginary characters based on Celtic mythology. The tiny men had long skinny legs, round bellies and large heads. They were never seen by mortals, but they lived in the homes of humans, helped with chores and sometimes played jokes and caused mischief. In the world of the Brownies, there were dozens of characters, each dressed appropriately. It was easy to tell the policeman from the farmer from the businessman by their clothes. It was a time of massive immigration in the United States, so the Brownies included Chinese, German, Irish and other ethnic figures familiar to children. But there were no female Brownies to be seen. The cartoonlike figures were soon an important part of 19th-century pop culture, and the original magazine article inspired a series of books, comic strips and commercial goods like toys, games, dishes, candleholders, figurines, sheet music, fabrics and more. A series of majolica Brownies were made in the late 1800s. Each standalone figure was about 9 inches high. The Brownies faded from view after Cox died in 1924, but collectors are showing new interest today.


I have an 1889 metal hatchet commemorating the 100th anniversary of the inauguration of George Washington. There is a cutout of his profile on the blade. Is it valuable?


The 100th anniversary of George Washington's inauguration in 1889 was marked with three days of festivities, including a parade, naval review and ceremonies. Many souvenir items were made, including hatchets like yours. The hatchets were made in several sizes in bronze, cast iron and other metals and were meant to be hung on a wall. The value varies depending on the size, material and condition. Some souvenir hatchets sell for less than $50, but bronze hatchets sell for more than $2,000.

Find time to spend with husband away from his kids Dear Annie: My husband insists we have brunch every Sunday with his grown children and mine. Because he works extremely long hours and we don’t get to spend enough quality time together, I would like to use that time to do things for the two of us now that we are empty nesters. I love my husband, but wonder if all I am to him is a glorif ied homemaker and workhorse. He never touches me anymore, and I’m not entirely sure he really loves me. When I asked him to reserve Sundays for us, he became angry and said he will spend time with his kids without me. I love my children, too, but I don’t need to have them around me all the time. Am I an awful person for feeling this way? I think my kids should have their own lives and let us live ours. My husband is the one who refuses to let go of his children and doesn’t want to spend time with me, his new wife. By the way, his children have told me he is smothering them, but they are afraid to tell him to back off. Should I tell him? — Lonely in the Deep Woods Dear Lonely: Most parents would be ecstatic to have brunch with their grown children every Sunday.

Instead of focusing on Sunday mornings, suggest engaging activities for the two of you at other times. And please consider counseling.

Martha Stewart appears as an animated character in the Sunday morning cartoon special “Martha’s Fourth” (8 a.m., Hallmark). “Martha” depicts the domestic diva as a smart and enterprising 10-year-old. A Nancy Drew-type with a love for crafts. Can a “Lil’ Martha” cartoon series be far behind? ● Just short of Christmas, one of my favorite television traditions has to be the Fourth of July weekend “Twilight Zone” marathon on Syfy. The journey to the late Rod Serling’s dimension runs from 8 a.m. today to 3 a.m. Tuesday, with a three-hour break at dawn on Monday. Last year, in a weird and unexpected move, Syfy replaced the annual “Twilight Zone” marathon with 20 hours of “The Greatest American Hero,” a move that must have brought howls of protest. It has since come to its senses and all is right with the black-and-white universe. ● The star of a Fox sitcom past returns to standup on “Christopher Titus: Neverlution” (8 p.m., Comedy Central). ● Guy Fieri guest-stars on a 90-minute installment of “The Next Food Network Star” (8 p.m., Food), featuring a return to Mel’s Drive-In.

D.A. suffers new setback with Strauss-Kahn By Tom Hays Associated Press Writer

NEW YORK — It was a sensational caseload that would put any prosecutor’s office on the map — or on the spot. There was a prominent French politician accused of sexually assaulting a hotel housekeeper; two police officers charged with the onduty rape of a young woman; and two men caught in an alleged scheme to blow up city synagogues. But what began as a promising, headline-grabbing summer for the Manhattan district attorney’s office has been clouded by a dizzying series of setbacks inside the courthouse. The latest setback came Friday, when prosecutors conceded the accuser in the attempted rape case against former IMF leader and potential French presidential contender Dominique Strauss-Kahn had credibility problems. The issues were serious enough that they agreed to allow a judge to lift his bail and free him from house arrest. District Attorney Cyrus R. Vance Jr. — six weeks after he was put in the international spotlight by announcing charges against Strauss-Kahn — kept things brief when he again faced cameras outside the courthouse to deliver a prepared statement about the unfortunate turn his biggest case yet. “As prosecutors, our duty is to do whatever is right, in every case, without fear or favor, wherever that leads,” he said. “The disclosures we made that led to today’s proceeding reflect that principle.” Vance refused to take ques-

FORMER INTERNATIONAL MONETARY FUND LEADER Dominique Strauss-Kahn leaves his temporary residence in Tribeca on Saturday in New York. A judge released him Friday without bail or home confinement in the sexual assault case against him after prosecutors acknowledged serious questions about the credibility of the hotel maid who accused him of sexual assault. The criminal case against him stands. tions. By contrast, the accuser’s attorney, Ken Thompson, went back and forth with reporters for 20 minutes, at one point questioning Vance’s resolve. The district attorney “is too afraid to try this case,” Thompson said. “We believe that he’s afraid that he’s going to lose this high-profile case.” That fear, he suggested, stemmed from the stunning acquittal late last month of two police off icers on charges that one had raped a drunken fashion-house staffer they had escorted home. Jurors reached the notguilty verdict despite dramatic testimony by the woman and security videotape showing the officers repeatedly entering and leaving her apartment building over the course of the night. They instead convicted the

officers of misdemeanor official misconduct for returning to the building without telling dispatchers where they were. Two weeks later, the district attorney’s off ice informed the court that, after failing to get a grand jury indictment, it was dropping the most serious charge against two defendants in a different case that had been brought with fanfare under a rarely used state terror conspiracy statute. Police alleged the men wanted to strike a synagogue to avenge mistreatment of Muslims around the world. Federal authorities raised eyebrows by passing on the case, and the top charge was eventually dropped. The men still face lesser terrorism and hate crime charges that still could net them up to 32 years behind bars if they are convicted. But

the defense has used the development to try to portray the case as trumped-up and politically motivated. There was more bad news last week in another closely watched case — that of construction supervisors charged in the deaths of two firefighters in a high-rise blaze in 2007 near ground zero. A jury acquitted two of the defendants after their attorneys argued prosecutors made them scapegoats for the removal of a standpipe that would have provided water to fight the fire. Meanwhile, there has been some upheaval within the office as well as in the courtroom. The chief of the sex crimes unit, Lisa Friel, told insiders this week she would leave the post she has held for nine years to seek a privatesector job — curious timing amid the high-prof ile Strauss-Kahn case. She didn’t immediately return a telephone message Friday, and the district attorney’s office has declined to discuss her departure. Both the fire and the police officers’ rape cases were launched before Vance arrived in 2010, and the terrorism and Strauss-Kahn cases have marked the biggest yet initiated on his watch. Any misfortune probably has more to do with the risks in tackling tough cases than failings in legal tactics or internal turmoil, said Matthew Galluzzo, a criminal defense lawyer who worked in the sex crimes unit for three years until 2008. “To say they’ve made mistakes is probably too simplistic,” Galluzzo said. “It’s more like they’ve had some bad luck and some bad publicity.”

Minn. governor fights GOP’s ‘no new tax’ stance By Patrick Condon Associated Press Writer

S T . P A U L , M I N N . — Mark Dayton, the Democratic governor of Minnesota who let his state’s government shut down rather than accept the refusal of Republican lawmakers to raise income taxes on the wealthy, was born into money. It made him sure of something: “I grew up in that environment. I know people can afford it.” Most of Minnesota state government stands idle this weekend, the result of Dayton’s and the GOP-controlled state legislature’s failure to pass a new budget by Friday’s deadline. State parks and the Minnesota Zoo are closed, highway projects are stalled and thousands of government workers are at home without pay for the foreseeable future. The battle over the state budget in Minnesota echoes those underway in Washington and in other state capitals, as Republicans still energized from gains in 2010 focus on cutting spending and refuse to consider tax increases of any kind. New GOP governors such as New


Jersey’s Chris Christie and Florida’s Rick Scott have made deep cuts in state programs and Dayton employee benefits, while even some of Dayton’s fellow Democratic governors, such as New York’s Andrew Cuomo, have eschewed tax hikes amid a fragile economic recovery. The soft-spoken Dayton refuses to cave to the GOP’s stance that higher taxes are verboten. Since taking office, he has championed tax hikes on rich Minnesotans — or at least some form of new state revenue — as a necessary part of any solution to closing the state’s $5 billion budget deficit. “My father’s favorite quote was from the Bible: ‘Unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required,”’ Dayton told The Associated Press on Friday afternoon in his Capitol office. The front doors to the domed building were newly adorned with signs: “This building closed until further notice due to the state government service interruption.”



Dayton’s great-grandfather founded a Minneapolisbased dry goods store and along with family members built it into the department store chain that’s now Target Corp. The Dayton family no longer controls the company, but it left Mark Dayton a wealthy man who’s spent large chunks of his fortune on a quirky political career that took him to the U.S. Senate (he quit after one term) and now, at 64, to the state’s top political office. “I don’t underestimate his resolve,” said Doug Magnus, a Republican state senator and a farmer from the state’s southwest corner. “Other people around the table, including the Republicans, have political things in mind. I believe the governor feels he has one term to do what he thinks is the right thing to do, and he’s going to do it.” The political ideology underpinning Dayton’s actions isn’t limited to his experiences as a personally wealthy man. In Friday’s interview, he described his years after graduating from college at Yale, which included a short time teaching in an inner-city school in New York City.


“All these kids in my classroom were just as wonderful creations as I, and through no choice of our own, I was born into this great good fortune and they were born into this abject poverty,” Dayton said. “The injustice really seared my conscience.” Dayton said his political views are more sophisticated now, but protecting the downtrodden has remained a constant. He decried the spending cuts that would likely be necessary without more tax money in Minnesota: “We’re going to cut home health care attendants for seniors? We’re going to deny elderly widows the at-home services they rely on? All so that millionaires do not have to pay another dollar in taxes?” he asked. Dayton has never made being a politician look easy. Quiet and intense, he speaks in a halting manner, sometimes garbles his sentences and lacks a smooth personal touch. Twice divorced, he is close to two adult sons and lives in the governor’s mansion with two German shepherds — one named for a southern Minnesota town, the other for a northern part of the state.

9/11 flag provides security blanket for wounded nation By Tamara Lush Associated Press Writer

MARTINSBURG , W. V A. — Brian Tolstyka stood at the edge of a giant American flag spread across several tables in the Veterans Affairs hospital gym. Wearing a leather vest with a flag patch and a hat with a flag pin, Tolstyka was about to stitch his place in history. Gently clasping a threaded needle between thumb and foref inger, Tolstyka, 43, slipped it into the fabric of a red stripe. The 300 people in the West Virginia gym clapped. The Gulf War veteran felt a lump in his throat. The 30-foot flag flew from a half-destroyed building across from ground zero in New York in those dark days after Sept. 11 — its stripes torn and tattered by debris from the fallen World Trade Center. In 2008, it was mended by 58 tornado survivors in Kansas with remnants of flags from their communities. Dubbed the National 9/11 Flag, it’s been traveling the country ever since — a journey for the country’s most recognizable symbol that has brought most Americans along, uniting more people in a post-9/11 world than it has divided in other times. Within hours of the attacks, flags seemed to be everywhere: car windows, Tshirts, front porches. WalMart sold 5 million by the spring of 2002. Tolstyka, who served in the Army and organizes memorial motorcycle rides for veterans, went out and bought a flag for his car antenna a few days after Sept. 11. “It was a symbol,” he says, “of support.” It was also a show of defiance against the terrorists, a rallying cry of unity and a soothing security blanket for a wounded nation. “Every time there’s some kind of national emergency, we put up flags,” says Carolyn Marvin, a professor of communication at the University of Pennsylvania. “The flag represents the life of the country.” The Stars and Stripes hasn’t always been as feel-good a symbol, depending on the decade and the politics. Defaced by Vietnam War protesters in the 1960s, invoked by politicians on both sides of debates about war and American values and burned by anti-American protesters overseas, it’s been alternately reviled and revered. Few Americans flew the flag outside of homes or businesses in the f irst few decades of its existence, says Marc Leepson, who wrote a book called “Flag: An American Biography.” But on April 12, 1861, when Confederates fired on Fort Sumter in Charleston, “flags started appearing almost overnight,” he says.

A GIANT AMERICAN FLAG flies above the remains of the World Trade Center Oct. 11, 2001, in New York on the one month anniversary of the attack. After Sept. 11, 2001, the flag took on a larger-than-life symbolism and brought that unity to a grieving country. wore them in hats, men put them in wagons.” Leepson discovered an advertisement in a copy of a New York newspaper that was published just after the Fort Sumter attack. It mentioned a paint shop that advertised red, white and blue paints, and touted: “These colors are warranted not to run.” After Sept. 11, 2001, the flag took on a larger-than-life symbolism and brought that unity to a grieving country. Bumper stickers with images of the flag and phrases like “these colors don’t run” became commonplace in parts of the U.S. A New Jersey photographer snapped a photo of three city firefighters raising a flag on the ruined trade center site in an image that instantly was compared to the 1945 photo of U.S. Marines raising the U.S. flag at Iwo Jima. Flags spearheaded a patriotic buying boom, appearing outside homes, on office buildings, mugs and pins. Country Singer Toby Keith wrote “Courtesy of the Red, White and Blue” one week after Sept. 11. The song led with Americans saluting the flag and described wreaking vengeance upon the country’s enemies: “When you hear Mother Freedom start ringing her bell/And it’ll feel like the whole wide world is raining down on you/Ah, brought to you, courtesy of the red, white and blue.” In December of 2001, Congress designated Sept. 11 as “Patriot Day” to honor those lost during the attacks — and mandated that all flags should be flown at half-staff each year on that day. Nearly a decade later, flags aren’t hanging from every front porch anymore, but they f ill many American blocks, and thousands follow the touring flags to touch something that connects them to Sept. 11.
