Budget reflects cost of voter ID measures

By Peter Hancock

Douglas County Clerk Jamie Shew is expecting about $32,500 in new costs for running elections next year, largely because of the state’s new voter identification laws. “I did build in some requests for anticipated costs for implementation of the new law,� Shew said. “I added additional temp employees who will be responsible for following up with voters to get documentation, additional printing for additional COUNTY notices and mailings, and more postage, anticipating a large COMMISSION increase in mailings to voters.� Election officials are preparing for a busy 2014, when there will be races for governor and other statewide elected offices, as well as a U.S. Senate race, congressional races,

Kansas one of 5 states to cut higher ed funds

You might not guess it if you’ve watched “Jurassic Park,� but Rendering by Shutterstock for about 100 years, some paleontologists have argued that the famed dinosaur Tyrannosaurus rex was actually a scavenger that fed on carcasses, not the fearsome predator many imagine. But now there’s no doubt that the T. rex was at the top of the dinosaur food chain, a group of Kansas University researchers says. They’ve discovered evidence that the T. rex was indeed a killer. “The monster is real,� said David Burnham, a paleontologist at KU’s Biodiversity Institute.

these things could chase you and eat you.”

— David Burnham, a paleontologist at KU’s Biodiversity Institute and part of a research group that says the Tyrannosaurus Rex was a predator and not just a scavenger that fed on carcasses Burnham and the other KU researchers already believed that was the case. But for the last century, some paleontologists had questioned the T. rex’s status as the “apex predator,” the top of the food chain, of its environment about 66 million years ago, he said. They proposed that it was too big, too slow and too fragile to chase down and catch live prey. “It was debatable because there wasn’t definitive evidence,” Burnham said. “We would find bones that had been bitten and chewed, and opponents just said, well, that was evidence of scavenging.” Knowledge about exactly how 65 million-year-old dinosaurs behaved is hard to come by, Burnham said. And when they measured the tooth, its serrations — which serve as a fingerprint-like indicator that can identify a dinosaur by species — they found that it did come from a T. rex. As DePalma put it, according to Burnham: “We crowned the king.” The T. rex had hunted down a piece of live prey, and it had attacked fiercely enough to lodge a tooth in its backbone, even if it somehow escaped.

“We thought it, or we believed it. Now we know it,” said Bruce Rothschild, one of the paper’s other authors. Rothschild, a KU research associate as well as a professor of medicine at Northeast Ohio Medical University, used a CT scan conducted at Lawrence Memorial Hospital to confirm that the tooth was from a T. rex. The article is one of several authored partly by Martin that have been or will be published after his death. A prolific researcher, he also contributed to a book that’s still to be released and left a number of other projects unfinished that Burnham hopes will be picked up by others. “We like the idea that papers are still coming out with Larry’s name on it,” Burnham said. “He was such a big force in paleontology.” Now, thanks to his and others’ work, any child — or adult — who has imagined the T. rex as the most fearsome of dinosaurs can continue to do so. “You look at this hadrosaur vertebra with this tooth in it, and it’s kind of chilling,” Burnham said. “I mean, these things could chase you and eat you.”

for the first time to show proof of U.S. citizenship in order to register. That law was pushed by Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, a Republican, who has gained a national reputation for advocating laws aimed at curbing illegal immigration and alleged voter fraud by noncitizens. The law has created headaches for an estimated 11,000 would-be voters in Kansas — including 434 in Douglas County, as of Monday — whose voter registrations are “in suspense” because they attempted to register when they renewed their driver’s license, where proof of citizenship is not required. Shew said that about one-third of all new registrations received since the new law took effect have been held up because of the proof-of-citizenship requirement. And if that trend continues, he expects there could be “a couple thousand voters in suspense” by the November 2014 elections. Jeannine Koranda, spokeswoman for the Kansas Department of Revenue, said that under the federal “motor voter” law, people must be allowed to fill out voter registration forms whenever they apply for a driver’s license or renew their old license.

When they do, Koranda said, that information is forwarded to the Secretary of State’s office. But because Kansas law does not require proof of citizenship to renew a driver’s license, the department does not ask for that information, and so the material sent to the Secretary of State is not sufficient to complete their registration. According to Shew, that will result in additional mailing costs to notify those voters that their registrations are incomplete, and instructing them on how to show proof of citizenship. He said it is also likely to result in a larger number of provisional ballots being cast in next year’s elections, and that will result in additional staff and mailing expenses. In June, the U.S. Supreme Court struck down a similar law in Arizona. Kobach has said that ruling does not affect Kansas because the law here is different from Arizona’s, but some lawmakers disagree. Senate minority leader Anthony Hensley, a Topeka Democrat, has asked for a formal attorney general’s opinion about whether the Kansas law is still valid. Attorney General Derek Schmidt, a Republican, has not yet issued that opinion.

of about 3 percent. Gov. Sam Brownback, also a Republican, signed the cuts into law but said he would work to restore funding next year. Kansas Board of Regents Vice Chairman Kenny Wilk, of Basehor, said on Monday that increasing funding to higher education was key to helping the Kansas economy. “It’s not just about the universities,” Wilk said. “It’s about the overall health and well-being of our state and growing our economy. I think it’s a great investment.” Regent member Ed McKechnie, of Arcadia, said increasing the number of people with postsecondary degrees lowers the unemployment rate and raises the standard of living. “That is why there is a state interest to invest in education,” he said. Both Wilk and McKechnie are former legislators; Wilk a Republican, and McKechnie, a Democrat. But while House Speaker Ray Merrick, R-Stilwell, agreed that higher education plays an important

role in the state’s economy, he added, “However, that does not mean they should not be held accountable for the way they spend taxpayer money. There seems to be an appetite for spending more dollars every year.” He said tuition increases have far exceeded the rate of inflation since 2000, adding that he “would like to see them (universities) be more budget conscious.” Regents members have said recent tuition increases were higher because the Legislature reduced funding. Mary Jane Stankiewicz, a spokeswoman for the regents, said state funding for state universities is less now than in 2001. “The reduction of state funding has shifted costs from the state to the students. State funding has not kept up with inflation or the rising cost of doing business,” she said. Under the budget bill, the Kansas University Medical Center will lose $8.3 million over two years, and the Lawrence campus, $5.3 million. 645 N.H.

Lawrence attorney considering run against Jenkins

Learning their lines


$1M gift comes with no strings

By Scott Rothschild

Lawrence attorney Margie Wakefield, a Democrat, announced Monday that she is considering a challenge to U.S. Rep. Lynn Jenkins, RTopeka, in the 2014 election. Wakefield said people are disillusioned with Congress and that Jenkinsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; vote last week on the farm bill was a vote against Kansas values and in favor of Washington politics. House Republicans approved a farm bill after stripping out the food stamp program used by 48 million Americans. Wakefield said the conWakefield nection of farm subsidies with the food stamp program was a key alliance formed 40 years ago by former U.S. Sen. Bob Dole, RKan. and Democratic U.S. Sen. George McGovern of South Dakota. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Farm Bill was one of Senator Doleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s greatest accomplishments, a legacy of bi-partisan cooperation,â&#x20AC;? said Wakefield, who once worked for Dole. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m outraged that Lynn Jenkins once again put partisan politics before the best interests of Kansas families.â&#x20AC;?

BRIEFLY Veteran on trial for grenade possession WICHITA (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A survivalist who feared the world economy was on the verge of collapse faces trial in federal court in Wichita for possession of unregistered destructive devices. Alfred Dutton,a 67-yearold veteran of both the U.S. Army and U.S. Marines, goes to trial today for illegally having grenades. Investigators also found anti-government materials on his computer along with a â&#x20AC;&#x153;manifestoâ&#x20AC;? on how make an ammonium nitrate bomb. Numerous containers of that chemical were found along with fireworks, ammunition, gunpowder and firearms. The defense contends the prosecution is trying to paint Dutton as a â&#x20AC;&#x153;mad bomberâ&#x20AC;? with plans to take on the U.S. government. His attorney portrays him as a veteran who collected military items and was preparing to sell collectible World War II-era hand grenades on eBay.




Brownback monitoring scale accuracy issues TOPEKA (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Gov. Sam Brownback is monitoring efforts by the Kansas Department of Agriculture to increase the accuracy of heavy-capacity scales. The department has been criticized for a lack of accuracy in its regulation of more than 4,000 large scales used to weigh scrap metal, recyclables, agricultural products and other goods. Brownback told the Topeka Capital-Journal that Kansasâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; system, which uses licensed private inspectors to certify scales with follow-up inspections by state staff, may need some changes. The former state agriculture secretary has met with state agriculture staff about the issue. However, the Republican governor said the result of the â&#x20AC;&#x153;check the checkersâ&#x20AC;? program is better than when scales were examined only by state inspectors.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had a terrible quality program before we made the changes when I was agriculture secretary. We were having inaccuracy of scales at a high percent when it was strictly a staterun program,â&#x20AC;? Brownback said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s continued through multiple administrations so people havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t changed the program, but I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to tweak and look at it and see if weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re getting it done right.â&#x20AC;? The governor helped develop the semi-privatized system when he was secretary from 1986 to 1993. The Division of Weights and Measures oversees the large scales. Spot checks by the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s three inspectors approved 19 of the 72 large scales between July 2012 and February 2013. Of the 72, records show that 34 failed to meet state accuracy standards. The Department of Agriculture has promised changes in enforcement of the accuracy.

KJRSTEN ABEL RUCH, 4-H PROGRAM COORDINATOR AT THE DOUGLAS COUNT EXTENSION OFFICE, 2110 Harper St., sits on a stability ball at her desk instead of in a chair to help straighten her posture and strengthen her core. Douglas County Extension staffers are among office employees who are choosing to stand rather than sit or use other ergonomically friendly methods to avoid chronic pain and stiffness and otherwise improve their health.

Community health notes,

Employees stand, adjust office desks to help prevent health issues equipment from the getgo rather than having to replace it down the line. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not a one-sizefits-all society,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some chairs fit smaller people better; some fit taller people. We shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t order a chair just because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good price; we should order it because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the right chair.â&#x20AC;? Kristen Walker, who works in the corporate compliance office at Lawrence Memorial Hospital, has been sitting on a balance ball every day for the last two and a half years â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t imagine life without it. She no longer suffers from the back or hamstring problems she had from sitting in a regular office chair, the latter the result of her feet not being long enough to reach the floor. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I definitely know that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m in better shape simply because Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m subconsciously forced to engage my muscles rather than sitting and slumping,â&#x20AC;? she said, calling it â&#x20AC;&#x153;exercising without actually exercising.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whether you realize it or not, you are constantly moving, rocking backward and forward.â&#x20AC;?

Kjrsten Abel Ruch and Pam Heikes were both standing on a recent day at work. That wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be out of the ordinary at a factory or warehouse, but they work at an office, where they spend most of the day looking at a computer screen. The Douglas County Extension staffers are among office employees â&#x20AC;&#x201D; in Lawrence and across the country â&#x20AC;&#x201D; who are choosing to stand rather than sit or use other ergonomically friendly methods to avoid chronic pain and stiffness and otherwise improve their health. This trend follows recent data showing that sitting for extended of periods negates exercising later in the day and that many work-related injuries are chronic and repetitive rather than acute in nature. Some office employees now have treadmill desks that move at a snailsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; pace but keep the body active; others sit on exercise balls to prevent slouching and strengthen their core muscles. Kim King, a physical therapist at Lawrence Memorial Hospital, tries to help local employers and individuals prevent disorders like tendinitis, carpel tunnel and tennis elbow before they happen, as 60 percent of workersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; compensation cases are the result of cumulative trauma disorders like poor

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I definitely know that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m in better shape simply because Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m subconsciously forced to engage my muscles rather than sitting and slumping.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Kristen Walker, who works in the corporate compliance office at Lawrence Memorial Hospital

SUGGESTIONS Kim King, a physical therapist at Lawrence Memorial Hospital, has these recommendations to make your work station more ergonomically friendly:

Sit with your elbows, knees, hips and feet at 90-degree angles;

Make sure your computer screen is at or below eye level;

Take micro-breaks â&#x20AC;&#x201D; get up, walk around, stretch â&#x20AC;&#x201D; every 20 minutes posture and bad body mechanics. She gives ergonomics evaluations at about one or two Lawrence workplaces a week, giving employees tips on how to make their work stations more ergonomically friendly. Among her recommendations are to sit with your elbows, knees, hips and feet at 90-degree angles; make sure your computer screen is at or below eye level; and take micro-breaks â&#x20AC;&#x201D; get up, walk around, stretch â&#x20AC;&#x201D; every 20 minutes.

Several recent studies have highlighted the danger of sitting for long periods of time, finding that the longer people sit, the greater their risk of dying prematurely, even if they exercise regularly. Extended sitting has been shown to slow the bodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s metabolism, increasing the chances of obesity, heart disease and diabetes. A Mayo Clinic specialist compared the cardiac damage from sitting most of the day with that of smoking. King also calls laptops an â&#x20AC;&#x153;ergonomic nightmareâ&#x20AC;? and suggests putting them on a monitor stand and using a separate keyboard to keep forearms parallel to the floor and arms relaxed and at your sides. In addition, she recommends employers buy the right

I just heard on the TV that they’re going to make a movie of the murdering Benders of Kansas. I was just wondering what city or town they had their diner.


The Benders, a family of serial killers who reportedly murdered at least 11 people in the 1870s, owned an inn/general store (where they are said to have procured their victims) in the southeastern Kansas county of Labette, northeast of the town of Cherryvale.

Man shot at party identified WICHITA (AP) — Wichita police have identified a man shot to death at a weekend party. The Wichita Eagle reports that 27-year-old James Gary was killed in the shootout early Sunday. Lt. Scott Heimerman says four other people were injured, including two critically. The shooting occurred at a warehouse that had been rented out for a party. Police say more than 100 people had gathered at the warehouse and parking lot when arguments broke out and shots were fired. Heimerman, head of the department’s gang unit, says the shooting is gangrelated.



Police: Murder suspect made bombs WICHITA (AP) — The suspect killed in a 32-hour standoff with police at a Wichita apartment complex last week had been taking drugs and making bombs, police said Monday. Wichita police chief Norman Wiilliams said Jared Lee Woosypiti, 24, had been wanted for attempted first-degree murder in a July 4 stabbing of a woman in Derby. The standoff began Wednesday afternoon, shortly after Woosypiti fired multiple rounds inside a Wichita Kmart while trying to rob the pharmacy. A citizen was able to get a partial license plate number as he fled the scene, which helped police find the stolen vehicle at the Southlake Village apartments, where a woman Woosypiti had

been dating lived. She was able to get out safely and told police about his drug consumption. The suspect had threatened that if police came into the apartment the building would go up “like the Fourth of July,” Williams said. The U.S. Marshalls office also informed Wichita police that Woosypiti had been making bombs and putting nails in them, he said, and family members had told authorities that he’d talked in the past about “suicide by cop.” Williams said Monday that the decision to shoot Woosypiti was made about 10 p.m. Thursday evening — based on a combination of the warrant for attempted firstdegree murder, the gunfire at Kmart and the apartment, refusing to comply with police orders, the bomb threat and

officers’ fatigue. “When you look at all these things, the decision was made by me to go ahead and take him out,” Williams said. Williams said that until the investigation is complete he couldn’t say who took the shot. “We were hesitant to remove him because we were worried about the possibility of booby traps,” he said. The Reno County sheriff’s office is leading an ongoing investigation into the incident at the request of Wichita authorities. More than 10 law enforcement agencies and more than 100 law enforcement officers were involved in the incident, said Reno County Sheriff Randy Henderson. “I will not jeopardize the integrity of this case by rushing,” Henderson

said. Williams said Woosypiti fired at officers five different times on Wednesday night. Later, police used water pressure cannons to knock down sheet rock to see inside the apartments and get tear gas inside. By early Thursday morning, Woosypiti said he was coming out, but didn’t, instead breaking through the wall into a neighboring apartment. As the standoff dragged into Thursday evening, a police dog and officers were sent into the apartment. When Woosypiti began firing at them, officers returned fire to provide cover, so the dog and officers could withdraw. Shortly thereafter, Williams said he gave the order to take the shot and “end this threat to our community.”

Judges Court of Appeals judges, subject to Senate confirmation. In the old system — still in place for the Kansas Supreme Court — a statewide commission screened applicants and named three finalists, with no role for legislators after the governor’s appointment. Five of the nine commission members are attorneys elected by other attorneys, and some Kansans of all philosophical stripes believe it has prevented the courts from tilting as far to the right as the rest of state government. “This discussion was started by people who are looking for excuses to maintain the status quo,” said Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Jeff King, a conservative Independence Republican. “This is more of a concern about the person making the appointments than the selection process.” Brownback argues that releasing the names of applicants for the Court of Appeals will discourage some qualified candidates from coming forward. His policy is in keeping with how Kansas governors traditionally have handled appointments to their Cabinets and other major positions, and it mirrors what happens in the system for picking federal

judges, in place since the U.S. Constitution was ratified 225 years ago. The judicial nominating commission started releasing the names of candidates in 1981, and in recent years has opened its interviews of appellate court applicants to the public. The commission’s deliberations on which candidates advance are closed, but the names of the finalists are public. Ryan Wright, executive director of the Kansas Values Institute, said the state’s residents won’t know what factors Brownback is considering when choosing his nominees. But the institute, critical of Brownback, his policies and the rightward shift of state government, already believes that the overriding factor will be fealty to conservative ideology. “This is really about remaking the courts,” Wright said. “They need a court system to rubberstamp the governor’s decisions.” Supporters of changing the selection system for Court of Appeals judges argue that the old screening process was too dominated by a small group of lawyers. The governor’s power was limited to choosing one of the three finalists; if he picked none of them, the Supreme Court chief justice made the decision. And, of course, legislators couldn’t block an appointment. “When you have both the executive and the leg-

islative involved in getting the best quality candidates you can, I think you’re, long-term, in a better position for your judiciary,” Brownback told reporters last week. In the late 1980s, Republican Gov. Mike Hayden, from western Kansans, said he wasn’t getting enough nominees for the appellate courts from his home region. Later, the commission faced questions about whether too few minority candidates advanced. But in recent years, conservatives have complained that the selection process favored centrist and left-of-center attorneys and judges with strong ties to the state’s legal establishment. Judicial selection also flared as a major concern after Supreme Court decisions in 2005 and 2006 that forced legislators to boost spending on public schools and again when the justices took up abortion cases. The interest this year comes with the Supreme Court considering a new school finance lawsuit. The Des Moines, Iowabased American Judicature Society, which favors “merit” selection, said in a study in March that a survey of states’ nominating commission members found they viewed themselves as an effective check on a governor’s power. They also said political considerations are a low priority in their decisions.

K.O. Myers, the society’s research and programs director, said that when a single party controls both the governorship and both legislative chambers, “it removes the need for them to consider any bipartisanship.” A nominating commission provides balance in such cases by focusing on nonpolitical factors, he said. “It’s telling,” Myers said. “That’s the part of the process that the governor and Legislature were so suspicious of.” The selection process for the Supreme Court hasn’t changed because it’s spelled out in the state constitution, and an amendment must be approved by two-thirds majorities in both legislative houses, then a simple majority of voters in a statewide election. King said that even with changes, Brownback easily could go two full, four-year terms without a retirement or death on the state’s highest court — making critics’ fears unfounded. But next year, legislators are likely to consider a conservative GOP proposal to strip the Supreme Court of most of its authority to hear appeals and make a newly reorganized Court of Appeals the final arbiter of many cases. So when Brownback said he won’t release the names of Court of Appeals applicants, his critics jumped as they worried about the larger future of the judiciary.





rent agricultural policy is inefficient and outdated. “The House bill eliminates direct payments, improves crop insurance, and saves taxpayers nearly $20 billion,” Jenkins said. “This is progress, and will allow us to come together with the Senate and create a better system than we currently have today. Doing nothing, yet again, would have been irresponsible and put our food security at risk,” she said. Wakefield, a family law attorney, has lived in Lawrence for more than 30 years. She is currently chair of the Douglas County Democratic Party and 2nd Congressional District Caucus. The 2nd Congressional District includes all of Lawrence and Douglas County, and most of eastern Kansas, stretching from the state’s borders with Nebraska and Oklahoma. Wakefield said that over the next few months she will travel extensively through the 2nd district to listen to Kansans about their concerns. Jenkins, a former state treasurer and state legislators, defeated Democrat Nancy Boyda in 2008 and has won re-election twice.

Richard told Barbara to use a portion of their estate to leave the university a gift, and not just any gift. “He felt very strongly that an unrestricted gift was the most beneficial way to give to KU, because it gives the university the flexibility to decide how to best use the funds,” Barbara Meek said in the release. The Meeks met at a sorority/fraternity dance at KU, and they were married for nearly 40 years. Barbara earned a bachelor’s degree in education in 1960, while Richard received a bachelor’s in 1958 and a master’s in 1962, both in geology. He worked for Exxon for

many years in oil and gas discovery. One of the Meeks’ daughters also graduated from KU, and a grandson is a current KU undergraduate. Richard and Barbara had already given more than $100,000 to the university before this new gift, including a gift for a geophysics scholarship. “They’ve been consistent donors for many years,” Seuferling said. Seuferling said Barbara Meek’s commitment was “one of the largest gifts in recent memory” when it comes to unrestricted donations. Unrestricted gifts to the Endowment are dwarfed by gifts committed for specific purposes. For instance, in the 2012 fiscal year, the Endowment received about $2.3 million in unrestricted gifts — about 1.5 percent of its

$156.5 million in total gifts and commitments. The Endowment’s unrestricted gifts go into its Greater KU Fund. The money can be used for any purpose chosen by the KU chancellor, with the approval of the Endowment’s executive committee. KU’s biggest use of unrestricted funds, Seuferling said, is to fund student scholarships — about 2,100 of them in the 2012 fiscal year. They also fund faculty professorships and awards, graduate student support and Alumni Association events. The Greater KU Fund also pays for about 30 percent of Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little’s $492,650 salary, including all of the $60,000 increase approved earlier this summer by the Kansas Board of Regents.



• Two Winchester women were taken to Kansas University Hospital by helicopter ambulance Saturday after a head-on collision in Jefferson County. The accident occurred about 11 a.m. in the 18200 block of Mooney Creek Road, near Winchester in northeastern Jefferson County, said Jefferson County Undersheriff Robert Chartier. Bonnie Kramer, of rural Winchester, was driving south on Mooney Creek Road in a 2006 Chrysler 300 when the car collided head-on with a 1996 Dodge Caravan traveling north, driven by Lisa Kramer, also of rural Winchester. Chartier said he believed the two women were related. Jefferson County and Winchester Fire Department emergency crews responded to the accident, where both drivers were extricated from the vehicles and transported by Life Star helicopter ambulance to Kansas University Hospital. Information about the condition of the two drivers was not available Monday. • A 41-year-old man was arrested Sunday afternoon in Lawrence on suspicion of failing to register as a sex offender. Lawrence police arrested Jermaine Dion Smith, who was convicted of aggravated indecent solicitation of a child in Wyandotte County in 2000, about 7:30 p.m. Sunday near 23rd Street and Naismith Drive, according to jail records. No fixed address was listed for Smith, and he was in Douglas County Jail on Monday without bond, awaiting transfer to the custody of U.S. marshals. Sunday was the second time Smith has been arrested for failing to register with authorities in Douglas County as required by his 2000 conviction, according to Kansas prison records. He was recently paroled to Douglas County after spending three months in Kansas prisons for parole violations. Smith had also been convicted of failing to register in Wyandotte County in 2004. • A 48-year-old Lawrence man was held in Douglas County Jail on Monday without bond after being arrested in connection with an alleged rape at an apartment in south Lawrence on Sunday. Lawrence police arrested the man after taking a report from a woman being treated for injuries at Lawrence Memorial Hospital about 4 a.m. Sunday, said Kim Murphree, a Lawrence Police Department spokeswoman. The victim told police she had been assaulted by a male acquaintance at an apartment on the city’s south side, was rendered unconscious, and thought she might have been sexually assaulted. The man was arrested about 5 p.m. Sunday at the Lawrence Police Department’s offices at 4820 Bob Billings Parkway. Police have interviewed him and are continuing to investigate, Murphree said. The man remained in jail Monday, with bond not yet posted. Douglas County prosecutors said the man may be charged early this week. The Journal-World generally does not name suspects in sex crimes unless they’re convicted.

Tree-killing beetle found in Johnson Co. KANSAS CITY, KAN. (AP) — A beetle that has killed millions of ash trees in the eastern U.S. and parts of the South has been detected in Johnson County. The Kansas Department of Agriculture said Monday that emerald ash borer was found in a tree near the Johnson County landfill. Trees there were being inspected after the presence of emerald ash borer was found last summer in

Wyandotte County. The U.S. Department of Agriculture confirmed the beetle’s presence in Johnson County on July 11. Ash trees become infested when adult beetles lay eggs on the bark, leading to larvae that bore into the tree. Kansas has enacted an emergency quarantine for Johnson County, similar to a quarantine in place in Wyandotte County.

Verdict is in The jury has done its job in a widely debated Florida shooting case. It’s time for the media and the nation to move forward.


Florida jury has reached its decision in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin, but, for better or worse, this case will continue to reverberate across the nation. After hearing what was described as “wildly conflicting” testimony about the events that led to Martin’s death, a jury of six women decided it didn’t have enough evidence to convict defendant George Zimmerman of any wrongdoing. In addition to the obvious loss of 17-year-old Trayvon, the notoriety of this trial will have a long-lasting impact on the Martin family. Although he now is free, Zimmerman also will draw continued focus and scrutiny. It seems likely that many cases similar to the one in Florida are handled by local authorities with little national attention. This case gained notoriety not only because it involved a black teen and a Hispanic man, but because it attracted the attention of groups and individuals who sought to use it to make a broader point about racism in America. That attention was further heightened by national media outlets, including several television networks that chose to offer gavel-togavel coverage of the Zimmerman trial. Martin’s death was a tragedy, perhaps a tragedy that signals a broader problem of racial bias in the nation’s law enforcement system. Unfortunately, conflicting testimony and evidence in this trial makes it difficult to draw broad conclusions. Supporters of Zimmerman and the Martin family will continue to hold differing views about the verdict, but the jury that weighed the conflicting evidence has reached a decision. It may not be the final word on this tragic case, but the nation should accept the verdict and move forward.


U.S. needs Afghanistan exit strategy If President Obama has any strategy for a decent exit from Afghanistan, he is certainly keeping it a secret. The latest White House effort to jump-start peace talks with the Taliban in Doha, Qatar, ended in an embarrassing fiasco. Then, last week, the White House once again floated the idea that it would pursue a “zero option” in Afghanistan, meaning Washington would leave no residual force behind after U.S. troops exit in 2014. If this is the new U.S. exit strategy, it is destined to fail. Some say floating the “zero option” is only a tactic to pressure Afghan President Hamid Karzai to be more cooperative with Washington. Others say the leak reflects Obama’s deep desire to wash his hands of the whole Afghan mess, and therefore could actually become American policy. I asked Ryan Crocker, one of America’s premier diplomats and a former ambassador to Afghanistan, what he thought, and his anger was palpable as he responded: “If it’s a tactic, it is mindless; if it is a strategy, it is criminal. “Nothing could encourage the Taliban more. The Pakistanis (who are helping the Taliban) will dig in harder. It will send Karzai in completely the wrong direction. “It invokes memories of the early 1990s,” Crocker added, referring to the time when the United States abandoned Afghanistan after the Soviet withdrawal, leaving behind a failed state that became a haven for terrorists. “It’s as if we’re telling the Afghans, ‘We’re tired, we’re going home, screw you.’” I agree with Crocker. Yet

If that government collapses, the country will plunge into civil war, with all of Afghanistan’s neighbors backing their proxies.” it’s clear that Americans are fed up with the long and costly war in Afghanistan. Obama hasn’t made the case for a continued troop presence and probably believes there would be little political or strategic cost to a zero option. If so, he is wrong. The importance of a residual military presence (of about 10,000 troops) is more about symbols than numbers. The main function of the troops would be to train and advise Afghans, but they would also symbolize a longterm U.S. commitment to the country’s stability. Toward that end, the United States signed a bilateral strategic partnership accord with Kabul last year, negotiated by Crocker. A zero option would undercut that accord and signal that Washington is ready to abandon its commitments. It would weaken congressional and international pledges to fund Afghan forces and economic development over the next decade.

Perhaps this doesn’t matter, you might say. Why should we be helping a corrupt Afghan government that feeds on Western aid? Answer: If that government collapses, the country will plunge into civil war, with all of Afghanistan’s neighbors backing their proxies. Pakistan will support the Taliban, while Iran, Russia, and India will back other factions. Afghanistan would once again become a failed state and potential terrorist haven, as it did in the 1990s. “We have seen this movie before,” said Crocker. Only this time, the movie would have dangerous new actors and far grimmer pyrotechnics than it did two decades ago. The blowback from terrorists within Afghanistan would threaten a highly unstable and nucleararmed Pakistan next door. And Washington would no longer have Afghan bases from which to carry out its favored antiterrorism policy: dispatching drones. Administration officials insist that the president is still undecided about the zero option. Testifying before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee last week, James Dobbins, the administration’s special representative for Afghanistan and Pakistan, said Obama “is still reviewing a range of options” and “has not made a decision about the size of a U.S. military presence after 2014.” But as the old saying goes, not to decide is to decide. Afghans are already making their decisions based on the belief that Obama wants a zero option. “The lack of clarity on this point has led to too much hedg-

ing in the region,” said Sen. Robert Menendez, D., N.J., the chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee. “Afghans who may otherwise be interested in building a fledgling democracy want to know that they will not be abandoned by the United States, as the Taliban claims they will be.” Afghans smell betrayal in the air. U.S. officials insist they won’t negotiate a deal with the Taliban behind the back of the Afghan government. Yet, at the Doha talks, the Taliban acted as if it were the real Afghan government, insisting it wouldn’t talk with the American “puppet” Karzai. Then came the hints of a “zero option.” No wonder Karzai is furious. In 1971, Henry Kissinger famously scribbled the phrase “We need a decent interval” in the margin of a briefing book that dealt with the withdrawal of American forces from South Vietnam. The phrase referred to his efforts to ensure there would be sufficient time between a U.S. troop exit and a likely communist takeover in Saigon — so that the Nixon administration wouldn’t be blamed for the defeat. That “decent interval” spanned two years, between the 1973 Paris peace talks with Hanoi and the 1975 fall of Saigon. Unless Obama commits to, and leads, a more coherent diplomatic strategy — with talks that involve all the regional players, not just Washington and the Taliban — there may be no “decent interval” before Afghanistan collapses. It could happen before the end of his second term. — Trudy Rubin is a columnist and editorial board member for the Philadelphia Inquirer.

Let us give the jury the benefit of the doubt. Let us assume that, within the narrow constraints of the evidence at hand and Florida’s bizarre gun laws, six good women rendered the only verdict they could Saturday night in acquitting George Zimmerman of murder and manslaughter in the killing of Trayvon Martin. Even so, the problem remains. Whatever legal closure it gives, this verdict does not satisfy, any more than a guilty verdict would have, the central moral question here: Why? Why did Zimmerman regard Trayvon as suspicious when all he did was wear a hooded sweatshirt while walking in the rain? Why did initial police reports designate Trayvon the suspect when he was actually the unarmed victim? Why was his assailant able to go home that same night? Trayvon’s parents have consistently rejected any notion that race played a role in his death. It was a smart position, reflecting a recognition that when race enters the conversation, reason often exits, compassion following close behind. But truth is, race has been there at every turn. If man and boy had both been black or white, we would never

have heard of either. There likely would not even have been a shooting. For many of us as AfricanAmericans, that night was a recurring nightmare driven to a horrific conclusion. It was the driving-while-black traffic stops, the “born suspect” joke that isn’t, the cost of being black in a nation that considers black the natural color of criminality. Some people — most of them white and on the furthest right of the political spectrum — will disagree. For them, Zimmerman is the victim here, a man who acted justifiably to defend himself.

Race, they will say, did not enter the picture except afterward, when he was thrown to the mob because of it. And you wonder: What color is the sky on their world? A few years ago, “What Would You Do?,” an ABC-TV hidden-camera show, set up a situation where two actors posed as bike thieves in a public park, using bolt cutters and hack saws to cut a bike chain. The results were instructive. Over the course of an hour, a hundred people passed the white “thief” by with barely a glance. The black one had hardly gotten to work before a crowd of whites gathered around him, interrogating him, lecturing him, calling 911, even shooting cell phone video. Did race explain the disparity? “Not at all,” a white man who had harassed the black actor assured the cameras. “He could’ve been any color, it wouldn’t have mattered to me.” He doubtless believed what he said. For some of us, though, it has a tired, heard-before quality. It is, after all, the kind of thing some people always say when you complain of voter ID laws that will peel black voters off the rolls. Or when you condemn Republican presidential candidates for using “welfare” as

a dog-whistle word of racial acrimony. Or when an unarmed boy is killed and the man who did the killing doesn’t even spend the night in jail. But the answer to the moral questions that killing raises is not mysterious to some of us. We know how America is. We know, for instance, that it regards black men as inherently criminal, jails them disproportionately because of that belief, then points to the fact that they are disproportionately jailed as proof of that belief. We know, in other words, that where people who look like Trayvon are concerned, America is a little nuts. So we know what stalked Trayvon down that street last year. We know what killed him. And we know why the people who were paid to give a damn about that, didn’t. You see, we have not the luxury of self-delusion. We have sons and grandsons and nephews, and we must teach them, too, how America is. They are cocky and invincible in the way boys always are. And they all look like Trayvon. — Leonard Pitts Jr. is a columnist for the Miami Herald. He chats with readers from noon to 1 p.m. each Wednesday on www.MiamiHerald. com.

Wiggins awaits award fate By Gary Bedore





Painful reminders

Kansas University freshman basketball sensation Andrew Wiggins arrived in Los Angeles on Monday for tonightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Gatorade High School Athlete of the Year awards ceremony in Hollywood. Wiggins, who was named boys basketball player of the year after averaging 23.4 points and 11.2 rebounds a game his senior season at Huntington (W.Va.) Prep, is a finalist with baseball player of the year Clint Frazier (Loganville, Ga., High), football player of the year Max Browne (Skyline, Wash., High), cross country runner of the year Edward Cheserek (St. Benedict Prep, Newark, N.J.), soccer player of the year Christian Roldan (El Rancho High, Pico Rivera, Calif.) and track athlete of the year Trayvon Bromell (Gibbs High, St. Petersburg, Fla). The athletesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; first big event of the week was bowling Monday night at Lucky Strike in Hollywood. Browne, who is headed to USC, passed for 4,526 yards and 49 touchdowns his senior season. Bromell, who signed with Baylor, has the fastest 100-meter time of any U.S. high school runner in history (9.99). Cheserek, who is headed to Oregon, is two-time winner of the Foot Locker National CC championships. Please see HOOPS, page 3B

A look at Selfâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s saddest setbacks J-W Staff Reports

Last month, at the NBA Draft in New York City, former Kansas University forward Ben McLemore and Michigan guard Trey Burke hung out together quite a bit. During the pre-draft media day, which included a couple of news conferences and a trip to the 9/11 Memorial at the site of the World Trade Center, McLemore and Burke could be seen talking, laughing and enjoying the once-ina-lifetime experience together.

No anger. No animosity. No nastiness about the fact that, just three months earlier, Burke and the Wolverines ended McLemoreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s college career and KUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s season with an improbable comeback that erased a double-digit deficit in the final few minutes and featured the shot of the NCAA Tournament, a 27-footer from Burke in the final seconds of regulation that tied the game and all but buried the Jayhawks. While the loss and the shot no doubt hurt him at the time, McLemoreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bond with Burke in the Big Apple was proof

that life did go on. And even though no one likes the feeling of losing, it is a part of life, as is learning how to deal with it. KU coach Bill Self has lost just 59 games during his first 10 years in Lawrence. His winning percentage (.836) during that time is among the best in college basketball and has surpassed the incredible standard set by his predecessor, Roy Williams. Because of their scarcity, many of those 59 losses have been tough for fans and players to swallow. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s understandable. But if Jayhawks like McLemore can

move on and actually become close friends with guys like Burke, who not long ago sent McLemore into tears, shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t we at least be able to rehash those losses in a series of stories that mostly remembers the good times? Part 7 of this summerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s series, which looks back at the top players and moments â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and in this case some of the worst â&#x20AC;&#x201D; of the Self era so far, focuses on a few of the most memorable losses during what has been a decade Please see LOSSES, page 3B

Mickelson preps for British Open GULLANE, SCOTLAND (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Fresh off a Scottish Open victory, Phil Mickelson showed up at Muirfield for the first time in 11 years and didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take long to figure out his strategy for the British Open. He wants to keep it as simple as possible and try to make easy pars. He didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take the easy route on the par-5 17th, however. Mickelson couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t resist the temptation of the dunes right of the green. He placed the ball on the upward slope, even with the flag, and attempted his favorite trick shot â&#x20AC;&#x201D; hitting a lob wedge that goes backward. With a full swing, the ball went up and over his head, landed on the green and stopped about six feet away. But it was only Monday, a day of practice. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is fun to come in with a win, but now itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to focus on Muirfield and try to learn the nuances,â&#x20AC;? Mickelson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m looking for is how to make easy pars, how to get the

Froome cruising toward Tour win ENTRECHAUX, FRANCE (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; There appears to be little to stop Chris Froome from reaching the Champs-Elysees on Sunday in the yellow jersey and becoming the second straight British cyclist to win the Tour de France. After another brutal attack in the mountains on Sunday, Froome leads Bauke Mollema and Alberto Contador by more than four minutes with only six stages left â&#x20AC;&#x201D; four of them suited to him. There is a time trial on Wednesday, followed by three straight days of tortuous climbs in the Alps. But winning looks like the easy part. The 28-year-old Froomeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s physical superiority at the 100th Tour has raised eyebrows, practically inevitable in the climate of suspicion that haunts cycling after Lance Armstrong was stripped of his seven titles for serial doping. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s race is the first since Armstrong lost his titles, and Froome understands the tone of the questions. Still, he was unhappy that doping became a main topic of his news conference on Mondayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rest day. That followed his stage win on Mont Ventoux, a mammoth climb in Provence that he tamed with two blistering attacks and where he left Contador â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the 2007 and â&#x20AC;&#x2122;09 Tour champion â&#x20AC;&#x201D; lagging behind. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s quite sad that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re sitting here the day after the biggest victory of my life ... quite a historic win, talking about doping,â&#x20AC;? Froome said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Here I am basically being accused of being a cheat and a liar and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not cool. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To compare me with Lance, I mean, Lance cheated. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not cheating. End of story.â&#x20AC;? Froome would much rather be focusing on the Alps. And judging by what Contador saw on the 21-kilometer (13mile) ascent up Ventoux, the Spaniard has every reason to fear more misery there. If Contador thinks Ventoux was tough, then he will be dreading Thursdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 18th stage â&#x20AC;&#x201D; featuring two big climbs up lâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Alpe dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Huez, one of the Tourâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most famed mountain passes. That is bad enough, but Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 204.5-kilometer (127-mile) trek from Bourg dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Oisans to Le Grand-Bornand looks horrendous with two massive climbs, known as HC (Hors Categorie, essentially meaning they are beyond classification because they are so tough) and finishes with two nasty Category 1 climbs, a level just below HC but still incredibly hard. For good measure, Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stage ends with a 10.7-kilometer (6.6-mile) HC climb up to Semnoz.

ball in the fairway easily, how to get it up and around the greens without a lot of stress, without having to hit perfect shots. Because imperfect shots will be magnified by the wind.â&#x20AC;? Mickelson has not had much success in the Open. He finished one shot out of a playoff in 2004 at Royal Troon in what he considers his best week in the British Open. Two years ago, he made a Sunday charge that came up three shots short at Royal St. Georgeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. He is trying to understand how to play the game on the ground, so typical of links golf, but he said Muirfield is a course that sometimes requires the ball to travel more in the air to cover some of the pot bunkers short of the green. Mickelson finished toward the bottom of the pack in 2002 at Muirfield. He missed the nasty weather on Saturday that derailed so many other players, but failed to take advantage of

the calm conditions and shot 76. He tried to come down on Tuesday of last week for a practice round, but he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make it. That means he will be spending more time playing the course than he does at other majors. Take Merion, for example. Mickelson did most of his preparations a week before the U.S. Open, so he had no trouble flying home across the country to San Diego for his daughterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s eighth-grade graduation and returning overnight in time for his Thursday morning tee time. He nearly won the U.S. Open. At other majors, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not unusual for him to play one full practice round at the course and go elsewhere the rest of the week until the opening round. But he knows those courses. Muirfield requires getting reacquainted. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This week Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll spend more time on the golf course,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Being able to be here and have a few quiet days is good.â&#x20AC;?

Knicksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; J.R. Smith has surgery NEW YORK â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Knicks guard J.R. Smith has had patella tendon surgery and arthroscopy on his left knee that likely will keep him from joining the Knicks when they open training camp in late September. The team said Smith will need 12-16 weeks to recover from the operation performed Monday by Dr. Answorth Allen at the Hospital for Special Surgery. The team said the injuries were chronic, with the arthroscopy repairing a tear in the lateral meniscus. Smith, who won the Sixth Man of the Year award, helped shoot the Knicks into the playoffs before struggling in the postseason. The New Jersey product worked out a deal to stay with the Knicks that will pay him about $25 million over four years. He averaged 18.1 points during the regular season, second on the team behind Carmelo Anthony.


Aaric Murray leaves WVU MORGANTOWN, W.VA. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; West Virginia forward Aaric Murray has left the Mountaineers after one season. Coach Bob Huggins announced Murrayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s departure Monday but didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t give a reason. He says it was a mutual agreement that it would be in Murrayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best interest to finish his college career elsewhere. The 6-foot-10 Murray averaged 8.8 points and 5.9 rebounds last season as a junior. He transferred to West Virginia from La Salle and sat out the 2011-12 season. Murray is the fifth player to leave from last seasonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s team. Guards Jabarie Hinds and Aaron Brown and forwards Keaton Miles and Volodymyr Gerun also asked for their release. The Mountaineers went 13-19 last season, the worst record in Hugginsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 31 years as a head coach.

New York native World Peace joins Knicks


TODAY â&#x20AC;˘ MLB All-Star Game, at Mets, 7 p.m.



LAS VEGAS â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Metta World Peace is coming home to play for the New York Knicks. The Knicks said the contract has not been signed, but an agreement has been reached. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The team is amazing, the players. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m excited to play and hustle,â&#x20AC;? World Peace said Monday while attending the NBA summer league in Las Vegas. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yes, this is going to happen,â&#x20AC;? World Peaceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s agent, Marc Cornstein, said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really excited to be joining his hometown team. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s obviously been something thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a dream of his since growing up in Queensbridge. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just thrilled to be joining the New York Knicks.â&#x20AC;? World Peace was waived Thursday by the Los Angeles World Peace Lakers, who used the amnesty clause to create salary cap space. The 6-foot-7 forward will still be paid the $7.7 million that was owed to him by the Lakers. Cornstein said the new deal came about pretty quickly. The Knicks expressed interest right after they were allowed to reach out to the former NBA Defensive Player of the Year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Obviously, Metta being from the area, and also much more importantly than just being a New Yorker, seeing the way he would fit in the team,â&#x20AC;? Cornstein said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Coach (Mike) Woodson did an incredible job explaining what his role would be. (Knicks GM) Glen Grunwald really made him feel wanted. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They just did a tremendous job; quite frankly, it became a pretty easy decision.â&#x20AC;? World Peace attended St. Johnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in New York, when he was known as Ron Artest. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It has nothing to do with New York, the city,â&#x20AC;? World Peace said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The only thing thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important are those players that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to be joining and touching that hallway with. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important right now.â&#x20AC;? In 14 NBA seasons with five teams, he has averaged 14.1 points and 4.7 rebounds per game.



Sporting KC trio All-Stars NEW YORK â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The MLS All-Star team will have an international flavor when it faces AS Roma. Red Bulls forward Thierry Henry of France and Irish striker Robbie Keane of the Galaxy are among 20 players on the roster for the leagueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s All-Star game on July 31 at Sporting Park in Kansas City, Kan. Italyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Marco Di Vaio, who plays for the Montreal Impact, also was selected Monday for the match against the Italian club. Several players with U.S. national team experience also made the roster, including Matt Besler (Sporting KC), Brad Davis (Houston), Omar Gonzalez (Galaxy) and Graham Zusi (Sporting KC). Also on the list: defenders Corey Ashe (Houston), Tony Beltran (Real Salt Lake), Aurelien Collin (Sporting KC) and DeAndre Yedlin (Seattle); midfielders Kyle Beckerman (Real Salt Lake), Patrice Bernier (Montreal), Tim Cahill (New York), Brad Davis (Houston), Will Johnson (Portland) and Mike Magee (Chicago); and forwards Camilo Sanvezzo (Vancouver) and Chris Wondolowski (San Jose). The goalkeepers will be Raul FernĂĄndez (FC Dallas) and Nick Rimando (Real Salt Lake).


Denver re-signs lineman Clady ENGLEWOOD, COLO. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Ryan Clady has been one of the NFLâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most dependable players, quickest healers and best risk assessors. One year after rejecting a $50 million offer and playing last season for a relative bargain price of $3.5 million with Denver, Peyton Manningâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s blindside protector cashed in on his gamble by signing a five-year deal worth up to $57.5 million over the weekend. Clady is one of just four offensive linemen in league history to start every game in each of his first five seasons and also earn three Pro Bowl berths. He skipped last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s trip to Hawaii with a torn right labrum that required surgery. He hopes to be cleared by early August.

Broncos suspend execs for DUIs ENGLEWOOD, COLO. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The Denver Broncos have suspended two executives who are facing drunken driving charges. Director of player personnel Matt Russell was suspended indefinitely without pay Monday, and director of pro personnel Tom Heckert was suspended for a month without pay. Executive vice president John Elwayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top two advisers were arrested and jailed on suspicion of drunken driving in separates incidents within a month of each other. On July 6, Russell hit two vehicles, including a police SUV in Breckenridge, injuring an officer. Russell registered a 0.246 percent breath alcohol content, three times the legal threshold for a DUI violation in Colorado, according to the arrest affidavit. Heckertâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s blood-alcohol content was measured at 0.162 percent upon his release seven hours after his June 11 arrest in Parker, according to a Douglas County Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Office report.


Vanderbilt IDs released players NASHVILLE, TENN. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Vanderbilt has identified the four players dismissed from the team for an incident last month that is being investigated by police. Coach James Franklin released a statement Monday saying defensive back Brandon Banks, safety Corey Batey, receiver Jaborian â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tipâ&#x20AC;? McKenzie and tight end Brandon Vandenburg were dismissed for violating team rules. The players were released but not identified on June 29.

Attorney: WR Harwellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s case still open By Matt Tait

Monday marked the first day of the final session of summer classes at Miami (Ohio) University. Kansas University transfer Nick Harwell was not enrolled at his former school, but that does not mean his bid for eligibility this fall is finished. Don Jackson, an Alabama-based attorney who has been representing the


unmatched by nearly all other college hoops programs. Be forewarned: If you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think you can handle looking back on these dark days for KU basketball, you might be best served just to stop reading here and skip ahead to the next article. No sense wasting your time. Rest assured that in the final few weeks of this summerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s series, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll get back to better topics, including best games, best comebacks and best quotes. Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a look at how we ranked the most memorable of those 59 losses:

Gary Bedore The worst-loss category surely will put folks in a bad mood this morning. One thing fans do not like to do, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve learned, is re-live losses. But, hey, somebodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got to win; somebodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got to lose. That said ... 1. Michigan 87, KU 85 in 2013 Sweet 16: Trey Burke was great. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just say Elijah Johnson wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t, and KU blew a big lead late in the Sweet 16. 2. VCU 71, KU 61 in 2011 Elite Eight: I know Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m over-reacting, and it probably didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t matter, but I just donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like the way KU lost the game, with the Morris twins mouthing off at center court, telling VCU players they had a nice little run and it was time to go home. At least, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what the VCU players alleged was said. No need to fire up the opposition needlessly. 3. Northern Iowa 69, KU 67 in 2010 NCAA tournament: The second-round loss was maddening as the Jayhawks fell victim to a bunch of guys with hardto-spell names. Northern Iowa had a nice team and played pretty well, but the final game in a KU jersey for Sherron Collins and Cole Aldrich turned out really bad. 4. Bucknell 64, KU 63 in 2005 NCAA Tournament: It was a sad way for Wayne Simien, Aaron Miles, Keith Langford, Michael Lee, et al. to go out in nearby Oklahoma City. 5. Bradley 77, KU 73 in 2006 NCAA Tournament: Bradley had a pretty good team, and KU did lose eight games that year and was mighty young, but the Jayhawks played so well down the stretch of the season it was a shocker.

wide receiverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s interests, told the Journal-World Monday night that Harwellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s case was ongoing and that he remained â&#x20AC;&#x153;cautiously optimisticâ&#x20AC;? that a positive resolution could be reached soon. Jackson said passage of the July 15 summer-school date, though key, did not signal the arrival of doomsday for his client, who is six hours shy of graduating from Miami. If Harwell is able to complete those six

hours, he would be eligible to play at Kansas immediately because of the seniortransfer rule that brought Dayne Crist to KU from Notre Dame. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a hard deadline with the possibility of extension,â&#x20AC;? Jackson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He could enroll today, tomorrow, whatever, but he would have to do it with the permission of the instructor and the help from some of the athletic departmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s academic staff.â&#x20AC;?

The extra measures are fairly standard for late enrollment at most universities. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I get the impression that this is out of the hands of the athletic department,â&#x20AC;? Jackson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It may now be at the executive level of the president of the university.â&#x20AC;?

Tom Keegan 1. TCU 62, Kansas 55 at Fort Worth, Feb. 6, 2013: Sure, it didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t end a season because it didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t occur in a tournament, but its sheer ugliness puts it at the top. A good team reflects the personality of its coach, and Kansas almost always does that by bringing aggressiveness, confidence and talent to the court. Bill Self never has had a team play a game at Kansas that was so different from his personality. On that bizarre night in Fort Worth, Texas, the Jayhawks were sluggish, timid, showed no confidence, no brains, no desire and lost to a really bad team. 2. Michigan 87, Kansas 85 in 2013 Sweet 16: The fact that one player, senior Elijah Johnson, was involved in so many bizarre plays that contributed to the collapse late in regulation and in overtime made this one sting so much. 3. Bucknell 64, Kansas 63 in 2005 NCAA Tournament: Bucknell was better than most knew going into the tournament â&#x20AC;&#x201D; New York sports-talk radio host Mike Francessa predicted the upset with conviction â&#x20AC;&#x201D; but more than the Bison were at work here. It was KUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sixth loss in nine games. Injuries and bad chemistry were at play. 4. Bradley 77, Kansas 73 in 2006 NCAA Tournament: Somehow, KU managed to tie a very talented, experienced Texas team for a share of the Big 12 title and then hammered the Longhorns in the Big 12 tournament title game. And then, at the worst possible time, the Jayhawks showed their age and for the second year in a row were bounced in the first round of the NCAA Tournament. 5. Northern Iowa 69, Kansas 67 in 2010 NCAA Tournament: UNI had tremendous difficulty with UNLVâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s full-court pressure, but survived and advanced. By the time Kansas stepped out of character to apply a press that brought the Jayhawks back into the game, it was too late. Ali Farokhmanesh, going against conventional wisdom, jacked a three-pointer with a onepoint lead and 37 seconds left, a play that symbolized his teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bold, confident play that night.

title. A win here wouldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve put the Jayhawks into a weak Final Four, where they wouldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been the overwhelming favorite. Things just never seemed right during this one, as guys who normally knocked down shots misfired often, the top offensive options seemed to press from the start, and the bench looked tight. Add to that the fact that the 11th-seeded Rams shot nearly 50 percent from three-point land (12-of-25) and it was clear that it just wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t KUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s night. 2. Michigan 87, KU 85 in 2013 Sweet 16: Who knows if KU would have gone on to the Final Four or to a national title had it gotten past Michigan last March. But one thing is certain: The Jayhawks never shouldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve lost this game. Up double digits with less than 3:00 to play and up eight with 1:51 left, KU fell victim to one of the worst fall-fromin-front losses in recent memory, which was made more painful by the fact that the top-seeded Jayhawks completely dominated the first 30 minutes. 3. Bucknell 64, KU 63 in 2005 NCAA Tournament: In the more than 70 years of the NCAA Tournament, KU has had plenty of tough losses. But many of them â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Virginia in 1995, Arizona in 1997, Syracuse in 2003, etc. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; at least came to well-known programs a little deeper in. This one, a first-round loss to the 13th-seeded Bison, will always be remembered as one of the worst because of the pure shock value associated with it. 4. Missouri 74, KU 71 at Columbia, Feb. 4, 2012: I know tournament losses sting more and linger longer, but I wanted to make my list mostly about games KU should have won And thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no doubt the Jayhawks should have won this one. Up eight (71-63) and in control with 3:21 to play, the Jayhawks never scored again and watched Missouri rip off an 11-0 run that stole what â&#x20AC;&#x201D; for now at least â&#x20AC;&#x201D; was the final Border War game played in Columbia. Of course, that 19-point KU comeback a couple weeks later in Allen Fieldhouse took some of the pain out of this one. 5. TCU 62, KU 55 at Fort Worth, Feb. 6, 2013: All you need to know about this one is that even Bill Self thought it may have been the worst performance by a KU team in the more-than-100-year history of Kansas basketball. KU shot 29.5 percent

and scored just 13 points in the first half, against, statistically, one of the worst teams in the history of the Big 12.

Matt Tait 1. VCU 71, KU 61 in 2011 Elite Eight: The VCU loss takes the cake for me because it, unlike the others, seemed to be the one that prevented KU from its next best shot at a national

Bucknell 64, KU 63 in 2005 NCAA Tournament: Former KU coach Roy Williams always was able to avoid the first-round upsets, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why this one in Bill Selfâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s second year came as such a shock. With only five scholarship players, the Bison took down the preseason No. 1 team in a stunner. Littleknown fact: The band that filled in and played Bucknellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fight songs that day? Northern Iowa. 2. Northern Iowa 69, KU 67 in 2009 NCAA Tournament: Another preseason No. 1 whose season ended abruptly. With only two losses all season, this Jayhawks team also was the consensus top team at the end of the season and the favorite to win it all. A pair of unexpected threes from 7-footer Jordan Eglseder, though, started the game unexpectedly, and Ali Farokhmaneshâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gutsy late three provided one of the NCAA Tournamentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most memorable shots. 3. VCU 71, KU 61 in 2011 Elite Eight: This one stung KU fans most because of the circumstances. After a flurry of upsets, the Jayhawks were easily the best team left in the tourney, only needing wins over mid-majors VCU and Butler to advance to the national title game. VCUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s run-and-gun style bothered KU, though, and the Rams used a 39-15 firsthalf run to take the lead for good. 4. Michigan 87, KU 85 in 2013 Sweet 16: This is the type of game that Self teams usually donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t lose. Holding a 72-62 lead with the ball and 2:30 left, KU had a 99.4-percent of winning, according to Ken Pomeroyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s statistical formula. Turnovers, defensive breakdowns and an unbelievably deep three from Michiganâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Trey Burke all contributed to the Jayhawks giving up the lead. 5. Bradley 77, KU 73 in 2006 NCAA Tournament: Though the Braves were underseeded as a No. 13, this was Selfâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s second straight first-round loss and led to many questions about his postseasoncoaching ability. Though that KU team was young (and won an NCAA title two years later), the loss led to some panic, as Self was just 3-3 in NCAA Tournament games at KU with two more first-round losses than Williams had in 15 seasons.

Big 12 in total tackles as a sophomore last season. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not going to sneak up on anybody this year. Heeney on Monday was named to the Rotary Lombardi Awardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s preseason watch list, making him the first Jayhawk to land on the preseason lists. Heeney, a 6-foot, 227-pound junior from Hutchinson, finished 2012 with 112 tackles and led KU in tackles for loss with 12. He started every

game at middle linebacker and earned second-team All-Big honors from the conferenceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s coaches, the Associated Press and Phil Steele Magazine. Heading into 2013, Heeney is listed as a preseason first-team All-Big 12 linebacker by Athlon, Lindyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and The Sporting News. Heeney also was named to the College Football Performance Awards watch list for the top linebacker in the NCAA.


Frazier, a first-round pick of the Cleveland Indians, has signed and begun his pro career. The outfielder hit .485 with 17 home runs and 45 RBIs his senior year. Roldan, who is attending the University of Washington, had 54 goals his senior campaign. Wiggins received his national basketball player of the award from former NBA great Alonzo Mourning during a surprise visit to Huntington Prep last spring. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Zo walked in, and, yeah, I stopped yawning,â&#x20AC;? Wiggins told USA Today. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I really owe thanks to my teammates and coaches and this whole community thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s made me feel so welcome over the past two years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is big for Canada, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s big for me. This award definitely stands out,â&#x20AC;? the Toronto native added. The male and female athletes of the year also will attend the ESPY Awards on Wednesday in L.A.

Block party: Former KU center Jeff Withey had five points, three blocked shots and three rebounds in New Orleansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 66-62 NBA summer-league vitory over Cleveland on Monday in Las Vegas. He was 2-for-2 from the field while playing 15 minutes. Withey had two straight rejections of 6-6 guard Carrick Felix, the ball bounding from the paint almost all the way to midcourt after the second block. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He got his own rebound. I knew what was coming. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know how to explain it, I can picture it happening before it actually happens,â&#x20AC;? Withey told â&#x20AC;&#x153;Coach (Monty) Williams is all into defense. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s perfect for me, all I do is play defense,â&#x20AC;? 7-footer Withey added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think me and Anthony (Davis, second-year pro out of Kentucky) can go well together. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not going to

Morris twins excel: Former KU forwards Markieff and Marcus Morris scored 22 and 18 points respectively in the Phoenix Sunsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 91-89 victory over Minnesota. Markieff had six boards and Marcus four. Marcus Morris hit the game-winning jumper. He accepted an inbounds pass from P.J. Tucker, dribbled past the threepoint line, then went up for a deep jumper in front of the Sunsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; own bench for the swish. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I told â&#x20AC;&#x2122;em (teammates) earlier Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been hitting a lot of clutch shots in practice,â&#x20AC;? Marcus Morris told â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m happy â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Hâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; gave me the ball and I was able to put it in,â&#x20AC;? he added, apparently referring to Suns head coach Jeff Hornacek, who drew up the play for Marcus.

Eight points for Johnson: Former KU guard Elijah Johnson scored eight points off 3-of-6 shooting with three assists, three steals and three turnovers while playing 16 minutes in the Los Angeles Clippersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 77-65 loss to the L.A. Lakers. Former KU guard Josh Selby had two points off 1-of-6 shooting with three turnovers against one assist in 11 minutes for the Lakers.

McLemore goes 4-of12: Former KU guard Ben McLemore had 14 points off 4-of-12 shooting with four rebounds, four turnovers and no assists while playing 32 minutes in Sacramentoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 80-66 loss to Golden State. He was 1-of7 from three.

Snubbed slugger wins Derby NEW YORK (AP) — Yoenis Cespedes won baseball’s Home Run Derby on Monday night, becoming the first player left out of the All-Star game to take home the crown. The Oakland Athletics slugger beat Bryce Harper 9-8 in the final round at reconfigured Citi Field, hitting the decisive drive with five swings to spare. In only his second major-league season, the outfielder from Cuba dropped his bat and raised his arm in triumph when he sent his 32nd homer of the night some 455 feet to deep center field, where it caromed off the back wall of the black batter’s eye. He was swarmed by the American League AllStars near the third base line. The final addition to the field, Cespedes was the fourth player not selected for the All-Star game to compete in the event. Right off the bat, he proved he belonged and put on quite a show with family in the stands. Cespedes hit a whopping 17 home runs in the first round — more than any other player managed in his first two trips to the plate. That sent him straight into the finals, though he added six long balls in round two for good measure. Some of his early drives were particularly impressive, too. Cespedes hit about a half-dozen balls into the upper deck in left, never reached by anyone in a


are just getting better, faster, bigger, stronger still, and it’s impressive to watch.” No kidding. Trout and Harper, the Rookies of the Year last season, are making their second trip to the All-Star game. This time, they will start tonight after getting elected by fans with a fervor for the new boys of summer. Some of baseball’s best players are among the youngest on the field. Night after night, they put up unprecedented numbers and turn in spectacular plays that belie a birth certificate from the 1990s. “It’s good for the game,” Trout said. “A lot of young guys are playing fearless

THE AMERICAN LEAGUE’S YOENIS CESPEDES, LEFT, OF THE OAKLAND ATHLETICS, CELEBRATES with Robinson Cano after winning the MLB All-Star Home Run Derby on Monday in New York. game, and banged another couple of shots off the restaurant windows in the corner just below. The 20-year-old Harper, wearing shiny gold spikes as his father pitched to him, hammered eight homers in all three rounds. But the Washington Nationals phenom couldn’t keep up with Cespedes. Colorado outfielder Michael Cuddyer and Baltimore first baseman Chris Davis, who leads the majors with 37 homers, were eliminated in the second round. Davis tied Reggie Jackson (1969) for the AL record before the All-Star break. Citi Field opened in 2009 with cavernous dimen-

sions and yielded the fewest home runs in the majors over its first three seasons. But the Mets erected a new fence in front of the old one, dubbed the Great Wall of Flushing, before last season, shaving dimensions by up to 12 feet and lowering the height of the wall from as high as 16 feet to 8 all around. Since then, the ballpark has ranked closer to the middle of the pack in home runs, 18th out of 30, but it’s still no hitter’s haven. In fact, hometown favorite David Wright of the Mets had joked that he would take his Derby swings from second base. Baseball’s big boppers took aim at two trucks parked beside the home

run apple behind the center-field fence, a popular staple at Mets games dating to their days in Shea Stadium. Wright and another hometown darling, Pirates slugger Pedro Alvarez, were both eliminated in the first round. Alvarez went to high school in New York City and grew up in the same Manhattan neighborhood as Manny Ramirez. Also knocked out early were defending champion Prince Fielder, the only player besides Ken Griffey Jr. to win multiple crowns, and American League captain Robinson Cano of the New York Yankees, who made Cespedes his final pick.

and making a name for themselves at an early stage in their career.” Not only that, they move merchandise. Jersey sales for Harvey, Harper and Trout rank among the top 10 this season based on purchases of Majestic tops at, the league and the players’ association said last week. Harper is 20, and Trout is all of 21. Barely old enough to vote, let alone buy a drink. Machado’s jersey ranked eighth, one spot behind Jeter, even though the Baltimore third baseman has spent less than a year in the majors. That didn’t stop him from earning his first All-Star selection on his 21st birthday. “In today’s era, young dudes are getting better and more prepared to come up to the big leagues,” said Orioles

teammate Adam Jones, an All-Star himself. “It’s just an improvement in the game. These young dudes are phenoms, and he’s put his name up there. “He’s probably more mature than I am, and I’m 27.” Machado was voted in by players, a significant sign of respect from his peers. Well, mostly elders, actually. He certainly deserved it at a powerpacked position after hitting 39 doubles in the first half, threatening the single-season record of 67 set by Earl Webb in 1931. “Swing and hit the white ball coming at you. That’s all it is,” Machado said. “There’s no secret to it.” Just like Little League, apparently. Sometimes he makes it look that easy, too. But take a swing around the majors and you see it’s not only Trout, Harper and Machado.

There is Miami rookie Jose Fernandez, a 20-yearold All-Star with a Cy Young future. Don’t forget lefty Patrick Corbin (23), who is 11-1 with a 2.35 ERA for Arizona. And second-year shortstop Jean Segura in Milwaukee, who leads the NL in hits at age 23. Then there’s Harvey, the New York Mets ace with 29 major league starts to his name. His next one will be tonight on his home mound opposite Detroit Tigers righthander Max Scherzer. There are 12 All-Stars this season 24 or younger, seven in the National League. That’s the most since a dozen were selected in 1993, according to STATS — a group that included Ken Griffey Jr., Mike Piazza, Gary Sheffield, Mike Mussina and Juan Gonzalez.

Dear Annie: After my bitter divorce, my son decided to live with his father in another state. I have spent thousands of dollars on airplane tickets, hotels, car rentals and restaurants. I have never forgotten my two grandchildren’s birthdays. Here’s the rub: To save money, I have traveled alone and stayed with my son. Recently, I stayed for four days. After traveling 1,000 miles, I spent two hours in a shuttle because my son did not pick me up at the airport as promised. When I arrived at their house, there was nothing to eat. My grandson gave up his bed for me, and the room was a mess (to say the least). His bathroom sink and tub were clogged, and my daughter-in-law expected me to clean them. I also had to ask for fresh towels. On one of the four

nights, they left me alone while my daughter-in-law went to a concert with her girlfriends and stayed overnight, my grandchildren had sleepovers, and my son went to a bar. When my granddaughter showed me her eighth-grade graduation book, she talked about her loving family and mentioned her grandparents on her mom’s side. (They live close.) She never once mentioned my husband or me. Do I continue to travel

Baseball in a slump, ratings-wise Professional baseball’s best gather for the 2013 Major League Baseball All-Star Game (6:30 p.m., Fox). This year’s summer classic will be held at Citi Field, the Flushing, N.Y., home of the Mets. This marks the first time New York’s National League franchise has hosted the game since 1964, the year Shea Stadium (since torn down) opened. Much has changed since then, including the size of the television audience for the game. According to statistics found at com, the ratings for the All-Star Game have declined from a TV share of 54 percent of all households in 1970 to 12 percent in 2012. Much of that has to do with the multiplication of TV stations and viewing choices. But baseball itself deserves some of the blame. Scheduling nearly all of the games at night and starting many postseason games so late that they end at or after midnight on the East Coast has robbed the game of younger viewers. Watching baseball is a habit — one that MLB has deliberately broken. In contrast, the audience for the NFL (that schedules most of its games in the daytime) has more than held its own. So we watch the ratings for baseball dwindle year after year while NBC’s “Sunday Night Football” remains the most-watched show in prime time.

“Suits” (9 p.m., USA) enters its third season with Mike Ross (Patrick Adams) in a Don Draper situation. Just as the morose ad man on “Mad Men” spent most of that drama’s first season worrying that somebody would guess his secret identity, Mike is now obsessed that Rachel (Meghan Markle) will reveal that this legal mastermind never bothered to attend law school. A glossy drama with entirely too many scenes set in glassy corner offices, “Suits” was the USA Network’s most popular drama back in the first quarter of this year. Not as popular as “WWE Raw,” but still a favorite.

Tonight’s other highlights

Hanna’s efforts to protect her mother run afoul of the law on “Pretty Little Liars” (7 p.m., ABC Family).

Arielle Kebbel hosts the dating series “Perfect Score” (8 p.m., CW).

Maura falls under suspicion on “Rizzoli & Isles” (8 p.m., TNT).

A road trip may offer clues about Regina’s murder on “Twisted” (8 p.m., ABC Family).

An environmentalist suspects toxic reactions on “Perception” (9 p.m., TNT).


Former Attorney General Dick Thornburgh is 81. International Tennis Hall of Famer Margaret Court is 71. Dancer Michael Flatley is 55. Actor-comedian Will Ferrell is 46. College and Pro Football Hall of Famer Barry Sanders is 45. Actress Rain Pryor is 44. Actor Mark Indelicato is 19.

all these miles for this type of abuse, or do I go only when I can afford a hotel and car rental? They seem to have busy lives and make no time for this grandma. — I Have Feelings, Too. Dear Feelings: It’s difficult to be the grandparent who lives far away. It’s expensive to travel, so those visits are infrequent. It takes effort to maintain a close relationship, and it sounds as if your son and his wife prefer not to extend themselves, which is sad. You don’t have to travel more often than you can afford, and be sure to invite your son and his family to visit you, as well. Then find other ways to stay in touch with the grandchildren — Facebook, email, texting, Skype, letters and phone calls. They need to know you better. Dear Annie: I have learned that a college professor at a major university in my area


For Tuesday, July 16 This year, opportunity after opportunity seems to head your way. You will feel like a kid in a candy store. If you are single, you could be attracted to someone older or more serious. If you are attached, the two of you are likely to add a concrete manifestation of your caring. The Stars Show the Kind of Day You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult Aries (March 21-April 19)  Opportunity merges with a sense of responsibility, and your confidence is strengthened as a result. The path in which you choose to head has very good indicators of success. Taurus (April 20-May 20)  Your expectations of a project will be more than reasonable, especially following a very upbeat conversation. A partner or an associate will be on the same page as you, which will add extra pizazz and energy. Tonight: Go where there is music. Gemini (May 21-June 20)  Ask someone to join your team in order to make a project better and easier on you. This person’s enthusiasm might surprise you. Tonight: Buy a card on the way home. Cancer (June 21-July 22)  You might not be aware of how responsive others are at the moment. You are like a locomotive, with the enthusiasm and energy. Tonight: Lighten up the moment. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)  You could be taken aback by someone’s stubbornness. The less said the better. Tonight: Don’t hold back. Share your feelings. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)  You have a keen sense of

uses obscenities while teaching his classes. He screams these diatribes at the students every day during his lectures. I saw a video of one of his classes and think the university should be informed. This is not how our young people should be taught. Should I report him to someone? Who? — Frustrated Alumnus Dear Frustrated: If you think this professor’s teaching “technique” poorly represents the university, by all means say something to the dean of his department or the president of the university. Suggest they look into his videos. But understand that it’s up to the university to determine what action is taken, if any. — Send questions to, or Annie’s Mailbox, P.O.

direction, and you know what needs to happen. Use your strong support system to create more of what you desire. Tonight: Have a long-overdue talk. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)  If you can be honest with yourself, you might see a weakness in your finances. Weigh the impact of this issue before you act. Tonight: Time for a talk. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)  What might have seemed difficult now seems much easier. Listen to news from someone at a distance. Tonight: Others are delighted to see you. Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)  Deal directly with someone who holds the purse strings. This person is in this position because he or she has a good sense of what is needed. Tonight: Spend time with a loved one. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)  You could be exhausted and looking for a solution. You might discover how willing others are to be your support system and/ or to pitch in. Tonight: Choose what makes you happy. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)  Pressure builds, as you could be stressed out by a boss’s requests. You will go out of your way to deliver what this person wants. Tonight: Burn the midnight oil. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)  You know how to read beyond what someone says. You will look at the person in question, and you’ll carefully assess his or her demeanor. Tonight: Where you can relax. — The astrological forecast should be read for entertainment only.
