Towing can chain drivers to huge fees

Crimson, blue and green all over: The KU Center for Design Research

————

Pricing for services varied, unregulated By Shaun Hittle sdhittle@ljworld.com

You get in an accident in Douglas County and need a tow truck but don’t have a preference on which towing company to call. No problem. Douglas County emergency dispatchers can call one for you from a rotating list of services. The tow truck arrives and hooks up your vehicle, cleans the scene and tows it to its company lot. Call the next day — and surprise — for some services it’ll cost you $800 or more to claim your vehicle. The tow charge might have been only $250, but at least one company tacks on mileage, cleanup and labor charges. Don’t have $800? No problem, the service can keep your vehicle and auction it off later. Outraged? Tough luck, it’s legal. It’s a scenario that happened to Ray Bloxsom. Bloxsom got into an accident on Kentucky Street recently, and Midwest Tow and Recovery was called by county dispatch to assist. Midwest towed his car — a limousine Bloxsom uses for a taxi business — to the company’s lot on Ponderosa Drive, about three miles away. When Bloxsom called about getting his limo back, he said he couldn’t believe the price tag for the service: $675 total, including $275 for towing, $150 for labor, $125 for mileage, and $125 for cleanup, according to a receipt Bloxsom showed the Journal-World. “I was robbed,” said Bloxsom, an 18-year Please see TOWING, page 2A

AFTER RAY BLOXSOM’S LIMO was in an accident, he couldn’t believe the price tag for the towing service: $675 total, including $275 for towing, $150 for labor, $125 for mileage, and $125 for cleanup. Bloxsom paid $600 and the limo is now parked at a repair shop.

Open house showcases innovative building By Shaun Hittle sdhittle@ljworld.com

Recent Kansas University architecture graduate Sarah Brengarth showed off the environmentally friendly features of the restrooms at the open house Saturday for the Center for Design Research building. The benefits of many of the features were obvious: lowwater toilets that use rainwater, recycled steel, and superefficient hand dryers. But no mirror by the sink? That one’s based on research showing that people use more water when washing their hands if they have the option of admiring themselves. The no-mirror innovation

was one of many interesting things the students — enrolled in a year-long course known as Studio 804 — were able to explain to community members Saturday about the recently completed center. After a ribbon-cutting ceremony, hundreds lined up for

HYATT SKYWALK COLLAPSE 30TH ANNIVERSARY

Group raises money for memorial By Maria Sudekum Fisher Associated Press Writer

K A N S A S C I T Y , M O . — In a city of memorials — to wars, firefighters, the Eagle Scouts, musicians and athletes — there is none yet to remind people of the hundreds of lives lost and scarred by one of the nation’s worst structural disasters: the 1981 skywalk collapse at Kansas City’s Hyatt Regency Hotel. The collapse occurred during a dance that drew about 1,500 people to what was then one of Kansas City’s newest hotels. Shortly after 7 p.m., the fourth-floor skywalk gave way, falling on a second-floor skywalk. Then both dropped about 45 feet into the crowd-

ed lobby. The collapse killed 114 people and injured more than 200. Many, many more — including those who rushed to cut people out of the twisted metal or care for the dying and wounded — were left with horrific memories. Today, a ceremonial groundbreaking will take place a block from the hotel, where a group hopes to build a memorial as a lasting reminder of the tragedy. “This was the darkest day in Kansas City’s history, and some people choose not to remember that. But I think the families want to remember their mothers and fathers and the lives that were lost,” said Bill Quatman, an engineer and lawyer who serves on

But nothing to the 114 people who were killed that night. ... I think it’s important that people remember what happened here, especially for the families involved.” The disaster had huge consequences. Investigators discovered the skywalks hadn’t been built properly, and the engineering company involved lost its license. Lawsuits followed. About $140 million was paid

‘No regulation’ While Bloxsom thinks he was overcharged, the truth is, legally, a towing company could have charged Bloxsom anything it wanted, said Tom Whitaker, executive director of the Kansas Motor Carriers Association. “There is no regulation,” he said, citing a 1995 federal law that prohibits states from putting limits on towing charges. Even the county has its hands tied, said Craig Weinaug, Douglas County administrator. County dispatchers call towing companies on a rotating basis when someone says they have no preference on which company is called.

ence isn’t unusual or confined to the Midwest. Several bills from a variety of towing companies list tow charges ranging up to $900. “They just can’t believe it,” said Bryant of the customer reaction he often hears. But it gets worse, explains Bryant. If a customer can’t pay the bill, the towing company can keep the vehicle and sell it later at a public auction, though they must abide stipulations in the Kansas Tow and Recovery Lien Law. The law requires towing companies to verify who the owner of the vehicle is, as well as notify the owner within 30 days that the vehicle will be auctioned if the owner doesn’t pay the towing charges. The charges also grow, as companies charge a daily storage rate — usually $30 to $50 each day. In some cases, the tow bill and the repair charges amount to more than the value of the car, and it gets classified as “totaled,” Bryant said. In other cases, people whose insurance covers towing might get overcharged, but the bill is passed on to the insurance company. And if it gets to the insurance company, it’s difficult to determine when overcharging occurs, said Tamara O’Connor, a spokeswoman for State Farm Insurance. “There’s no definition of what is excessive and what is not,” she said. “It’s a pretty unregulated industry.” Calls to several local towing companies quoted prices for an accident tow between $145 and $250. Jerry Taylor, owner of Hillcrest Towing, said his company would probably not have added the extra fees charged to Blox-

to wait for that section of 31st to be replaced. The “new” 31st is slated to be built just south of the current one, closer to the “32nd Street alignment” of the trafficway through the Baker Wetlands. “We anticipate that 31st Street will be in full use a minimum — an absolute minimum — five years from now, and probably longer than that, before the new 31st Street would be in place and usable for the public,” Gorman said. “And that’s not a 5minute job. It’ll go on for a long time. It also involves moving Haskell (Avenue) and Louisiana (Street). It’s a major undertaking.” So the county is moving ahead with its maintenance project. Eudora-based Little Joe’s Asphalt Inc. secured the contract, and its crews will be instructed to work in the early mornings when making repairs in 31st’s intersections with Louisiana and Haskell. The goal is to keep additional traffic disruptions off 31st to a minimum, Gorman said. “Most of the project, you will be able to get through the intersection at Louisiana and through the intersection at Haskell,” she said.

L AWRENCE J OURNAL -WORLD som, and the service would have cost its standard towing charge of $145. Owners of several companies said they normally don’t charge extra for mileage for in-town tows, and when they do charge for mileage, a typical rate is several dollars per mile. Bloxsom’s $125 charge amounts to nearly $42 a mile. The Journal-World contacted Midwest about Bloxsom’s vehicle and asked to speak to the owner. A man, who would not identify himself, answered and said Bloxsom’s case had been settled. The unidentified man would not discuss further details of the case.

Solutions The best way to avoid getting overcharged, said Weinaug, is to not leave it up to chance when you need a tow. He suggests finding a towing company with a good reputation before you need one and request that dispatch call that company if you’re in an accident. You can also try to negotiate a rate with the company before the car is towed. But if you’ve already been towed, you’re out of luck; that’s something Bloxsom learned the hard way. After trying to negotiate a lower rate for several days, Bloxsom said the owner threatened to auction his vehicle if he didn’t pay. Bloxsom relented and paid a slightly reduced charge — $600 — to get his car back. “I had to,” Bloxsom said. When the towing company released his vehicle, Bloxsom called a different towing company to take it across town to a mechanic. The charge? $30. — Reporter Shaun Hittle can be reached at 832-7173.

Kayaker found near Topeka water treatment plant

Casey Anthony released early today Casey Anthony was freed from a Florida jail early today, 12 days after she was acquitted of murder in the death of her 2-year-old daughter Caylee in a verdict that drew furious responses and even threats from people across the U.S. who had followed the case with rapt attention. Anthony, wearing a pink T-shirt with blue jeans, left the jail at 12:14 a.m. with her attorney, Jose Baez. She was given $537.68 in cash from her jail account and escorted outside by two sheriff’s deputies armed with semi-automatic rifles. Neither Anthony nor Baez said anything to reporters and others gathered outside. “This release had an unusual amount of security so, therefore, in that sense, it would not be a normal release,” said Orange County Jail spokesman Allen Moore. “We have made every effort to not provide any special treatment for her. She’s been treated like every other inmate.” Moore said there were no known threats received at the jail.

EIGHT-YEAR-OLD RYLEIGH LEON LEARNS how to ride without training wheels with help from Steve Harrington, Lawrence, during the first Community Bike Ride on Saturday at the Rotary Arboretum, 5100 W. 27th St. The event, which drew 125 participants, featured a safety zone and a training wheel takeoff station. See a video at LJWorld.com.

The body of a drowned Lawrence kayaker was found by authorities Friday afternoon in the Kansas River, according to officials from the city of Topeka. Ryan L. Moore, 36, was found downstream in the river, near the city’s water treatment plant by members of the Topeka Fire Department’s boat team, said Topeka Police Lt. Steve Purney on Saturday. David Bevens, city of Topeka spokesman, said witnesses reported seeing a kayaker near the water plant and later reported seeing an empty kayak floating in the river. Moore was identified by his truck found near the scene, Bevens said.

Police didn’t suspect foul play in the incident, but detectives were continuing to work on the details surrounding the case, Purney said. “It appears the kayak capsized and he didn’t come up,” he said. Ralph Reed, a neighbor and friend of Moore’s, said Moore worked as a doctor at St. Francis Hospital in Topeka and was a good husband to his wife, Laura. He also had a young daughter, Reed said. “It’s a terrible shock,” he said. “He was always willing to help you. He was everything you could ask for in a neighbor and a friend.” — Reporter Shaun Hittle can be reached at 832-7173. Higher education reporter Andy Hyland can be reached at 832-6388.

Astronauts fix, haul gear on last flight

Hundreds rally against SRS office closing

Astronauts kept busy fixing and hauling gear aboard the linked Atlantis and International Space Station on Saturday, as the last shuttle flight drew closer to an end. Atlantis’ pilots got a jammed storage locker open and retrieved air purifiers for the space station. In more good news, they brought back online a computer that abruptly stopped working two days earlier, the second computer failure in five days aboard Atlantis. NASA wants to run more diagnostic testing, but so far the computer seems to be working fine, officials said. Engineers have yet to figure out why the computer shut down Thursday; cosmic radiation is suspected. The first computer failure was traced to a bad switch throw and quickly fixed.

Chavez: ‘It’s not time to die’ Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez left home Saturday for Cuba to begin chemotherapy, vowing to win his fight against cancer and calling for his political allies to stay united in his absence. Before boarding the presidential plane at Caracas’ international airport, Chavez said: “It’s not time to die. It’s time to live.” He stood by one of his daughters, Rosa, on a red carpet leading to the plane as a military band played the national anthem and soldiers stood at attention. “I’m saying goodbye for some days,” Chavez said, “but in a deeper sense I’m not saying goodbye. I’m going to be in the same homeland, in the great homeland. And I’ll be attentive every day, every hour, every minute to internal events and I’ll be in permanent contact.”

Big decision on KU Med Center leadership to follow review By Dolph C. Simons Jr.

Some time in the next several days, Kansas University School of Medicine faculty members will be receiving forms from KU Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little’s office asking them to fill out a performance review questionnaire on Barbara Atkinson, executive dean of the School of Medicine and Executive Vice Chancellor. According to various medical school sources, this is the first time Atkinson has undergone a review, contrary to the policies of the medical school, which call for periodic reviews of all deans and department chairs. Atkinson has been at the medical school since 2000 and was named executive dean in 2002. This review comes at a time when morale at the school is poor and deteriorating, and many faculty members question Atkinson’s lead-

ership and management skills. There has been unrest at the school for some time, and in recent years, the role Atkinson played in trying to provide aid for Kansas City’s Saint Luke’s Hospital at the expense of the school and KU Hospital; the firing and the manner of the firing of one of the school’s most distinguished researchers and teachers; the manner in which Atkinson filled a vacancy created by the retirement of highly respected Ed Phillips, vice chancellor for administration; and questions surrounding the recent resignation, or firing, of a staff member who had served as an associate director of the school’s cancer center, all have added to questions about Atkinson’s ability to lead the school. Medical School sources tell this writer a search for an assistant and backup for Dr. Roy Jensen, director of the cancer center, had been under way for some time,

with several interviewees turning down the job. The departed assistant had been hired just last July, and Atkinson’s critics say the hiring of that individual is evidence of her poor management skills, in that before being hired by KU, he

application for the national cancer center designation because of internal situations at the school. A massive three- to five-year effort has been under way at the school to obtain the prestigious designation, and it would be a major and discouraging blow to those who have worked so hard to achieve this title to learn of a significant delay. Atkinson’s critics at the school of medicine claim that the leadership situation is “fragile” and that the review of her performance comes at a terribly important time. Some who received word of the upcoming review have asked whether answers to the review will be handled in a confidential, anonymous manner. If not, it is doubtful the chancellor will receive an objective picture of the situation at the medical school. With the recent attention given

Gov. Sam Brownback’s appointment of three new regents, it will be interesting to see if the Board of Regents will be brought into the discussion about the leadership and management of the medical school. It is known one of the governor’s goals is to have the medical school raise its national rankings and reputation, just as the KU Hospital has done over the past 13 years. Many people question whether significant improvements can be made with Atkinson’s leadership, and they claim there may be a number of superior staff members who will decide to leave if Atkinson is retained. With the performance review due to be sent out this coming week, it appears the medical school leadership question now is clearly in the hands of Chancellor Gray-Little. A great deal rides on her decision.

LAWRENCE POLICE DEPARTMENT

Maps detail accidents, calls, citations By George Diepenbrock gdiepenbrock@ljworld.com

ONLINE: See the video at LJWorld.com

A new set of maps on the Lawrence Police Department’s website provide residents with a snapshot of vehicle accidents, service calls officers respond to and citations issued. “The value to residents is that it’s much easier to get information, and we can get that information out quicker than it would be like going through the front office to get a report,” Public Affairs Sgt. Matt Sarna said. “The information is online sometimes within hours after it’s actually reported.” Sarna said the maps are part of the department’s focus on transparency, a strategy Chief Tarik Khatib named as a major goal when he was hired in February. Earlier this year the department

mapped all crimes reported in 2010 on its website, police.lawrenceks.org. Here is more information about the new set of maps: ● Accident reports — The map shows the number of accidents that occurred in the city in the last two months, and it also tallies the number of accidents per block. The site also offers a link to each accident report if it’s complete. As of Friday, 500 total accidents were reported across the city in the past two months. The map shows a heavy concentration of accidents near downtown and along 23rd Street. As of Friday, eight accidents were reported, for example, at Ninth and Massachusetts streets, and nine were recorded at 23rd Street and Naismith Drive since late May. ● 48 hours of service calls — Police in recent months

had already listed calls they were dispatched to in the previous two days, but now they’re shown in a map format as well. Sarna said the map shows officers how the calls are spread throughout the city. Some of the most concentrated spots are near downtown or in areas that are more heavily populated, such as apartment complexes. “Downtown, we do have more incidents because there are so many people on weekends and at all times moving around. It’s a more congested area,” he said. ● Municipal Court citations — Any traffic or other citations officers issued in the previous two weeks are listed on this map. A large percentage of tickets are traffic-related.

of the decision, said rally organizer Abbie Hodgson. “Secretary Siedlecki is holding strong,” she said. Numerous local politicians — including State Sen. Tom Holland, D-Baldwin City; State Rep. Paul Davis, DLawrence; and Douglas County District Attorney Charles Branson — spoke at the rally in support of keeping the Lawrence SRS office open. The speakers highlighted the hardships many in Lawrence will face if the local branch shuts down. A date has not been set for a possible

SRS Monday to discuss the closure, and community members have started a Twitter and Facebook campaign to “Save Our SRS.” According to state officials, closing the Lawrence SRS would save $413,000. In the future, those currently receiving SRS services in Lawrence would need to travel to other offices, such as SRS facilities in Topeka, Ottawa or Overland Park. Advocates and consumers of SRS services — which include food stamps, general assistance and vocational rehabilitation — expressed determination at the rally that they would fight the closure. “We will not sit back,” said Peter Luckey, pastor at Plymouth Congregational Church. “We will not stop.” Despite the recent controversy about the closure, Siedlecki has not backed off

Still, organizers remained optimistic that the office will be saved. “I’m hopeful,” said organizer Jacob Beaumont, who along with volunteers scoured South Park with petitions. “I wouldn’t be doing this if I didn’t believe we could save the office.” — Reporter Shaun Hittle can be reached at 832-7173.

State seeks to amend charges in teen’s death GREAT BEND — Prosecutors are seeking to amend the charges filed against the man accused of killing a 14-year-old Great Bend girl whose burned body was found at an asphalt plant. Adam Joseph Longoria was initially charged in Barton County District Court with capital murder, criminal sodomy, vehicle burglary and theft. The charges stem from the August 2010 death of Alicia DeBolt. Prosecutors changed the qualifier justifying the capital murder charge to of attempted. They deleted the criminal sodomy charge and added an indecent solicitation of a child charge. The charges for vehicle burglary and theft are unchanged. In its filing, the state argued the change is one of theory, not facts.

ON THE RECORD LJWORLD.COM/BLOTTER

Defense attorneys contend the amended charges sought by the state violate Longoria’s rights because the new information charges him with two different crimes than he is currently facing. In court papers filed Wednesday they are demanding a new preliminary hearing if the judge allows the amendments. That motion and a slew of others are expected to be taken up at a motions hearing Thursday in Barton County. Most of the other filings in the case involve the admissibility of evidence seized that prosecutors want to introduce at his trial. That includes items such as DNA samples and hair taken from the defendant as well as evidence seized from his mail, cellphone and a vehicle.

HOSPITAL

LAW ENFORCEMENT REPORT BIRTHS • A 23-year-old Leavenworth man was involved in a three-car accident on U.S. Highway 24 Saturday afternoon about six miles southwest of Tonganoxie. Kyle Lee Grape was driving westbound on the highway when his vehicle went left of center and struck another car head-on, according to a report from the Kansas Highway Patrol. He was injured in the crash, but his injuries were not initially believed to be serious. A 12-year-old boy traveling in Grape’s vehicle wasn’t injured, according to the report. The driver of the second car, Larry L. Lane of Manhattan, was transported to a Kansas Cityarea hospital, but information on his condition wasn’t available Saturday evening. After the initial crash, a pickup truckLAWRENCE struck Grape’s vehicle, but the driver wasn’t injured, according to the highway patrol report. All the victims of the crash were wearing seat belts, according to the report.

Marijuana dropped off at Goodwill location There was a little extra buzz Saturday morning at the Lawrence Goodwill, 2200 W. 31st St. A store employee found a container with a small amount of marijuana in a donation drop box at the store about 8 a.m. The substance was mixed in with a variety of other donations, said Lawrence Police Sgt. Ted Bordman. Bordman said he thought the marijuana was probably donated by accident. "I don't think they did it on purpose," he said. The marijuana was confiscated by police and will be destroyed, he said. A Goodwill manager declined comment on the incident.

Congress seeks debt solution, Obama goes to public By Jim Kuhnhenn Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON — Racing the debt clock, Congress is working on dual tracks while President Barack Obama appeals to the public in hopes of influencing a deal that talks have failed to produce so far. “We have to ask everyone to play their part because we are all part of the same country,” Obama said Saturday, pushing a combination of spending cuts and tax increases that has met stiff resistance from Republicans. “We are all in this together.” In his weekly radio and Internet address, Obama said the wealthiest must “pay their fair share.” He invoked budget deals negotiated by GOP President Ronald Reagan and Democratic House Speaker Tip O’Neill — which includ-

ed a payroll tax increase — and Democratic President Bill Clinton and Republican Speaker Newt Gingrich. “You sent us to Washington to do the tough things, the right things,” he said. “Not just for some of us, but for all of us.” As a critical Aug. 2 deadline approached, the chances that Obama would get $4 trillion or even $2 trillion in deficit reduction on terms he preferred were quickly fading as Congress moved to take control of the debate. At a news conference Friday, Obama opened the door to a smaller package of deficit reductions without revenue increases. Obama’s communications director, Dan Pfeiffer, said Saturday the president, Vice President Joe Biden and White House aides were discussing “various options” with congressional leaders

and House and Senate aides from both parties. The White House held out the possibility of arranging a meeting with the leaders today. House Republicans prepared to vote this coming week on allowing an increase in the government’s borrowing limit through 2012 as long as Congress approved a balanced-budget constitutional amendment, which is highly unlikely. In the Senate, the Republican and Democratic leaders worked on a bipartisan plan that would allow Obama to raise the debt limit without a prior vote by lawmakers. The talks focused on how to address long-term deficit reduction in the proposal in hopes of satisfying House Republicans. A weekend deadline that

Washington gets a dose of kitchen-table economics By Calvin Woodward and Martin Crutsinger Associated Press Writers

WASHINGTON — The debt crisis has brought the government to the “kitchen table” to do something that hardpressed families do routinely, which is tear their hair out over how to pay the bills. Pawn the family jewelry? Emptying gold reserves at Fort Knox and other repositories could raise a very handy $400 billion. Sell the property that has been in the family for generations? Yosemite National Park would fetch a pretty penny. At least so far, such lastgasp ideas are not in serious play at Washington’s kitchen table. But as the Aug. 2 deadline approaches for raising the country’s borrowing limit, you can bet someone in the government is thinking about them. Economists are. “The consequences of America defaulting on its debt are so unthinkable, catastrophic and costly that we should consider anything,” said Sung Won Sohn, an economist at the Martin Smith College of Business at California State University. “Sell gold, sell oil from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve, do ANYTHING to avoid a default.” In short, the nation is like a

family that’s overextended and close to wits’ end. To carry on without going deeper in debt, this family would have to cut its monthly bills by 70 percent or get a huge pay increase at work, enough to raise their income by nearly two-thirds. Now. Then they could scrape by without borrowing more, at least for a little while. So calculates the nonpartisan Congressional Research Service in describing the only way the government could move ahead without taking on more debt. An end to discretionary spending, a 70 percent cut in mandatory spending or an enormous boost in tax revenue would suffice, but only for this year, it says. Then it gets even worse. Nothing like that will happen. The government is almost certain to raise its debt limit and carry on borrowing something like 40 cents out of every dollar it spends. The question is whether it will do so in time to avoid late interest payments and economic turmoil, and what size spending cuts, tax increases or both will become part of the deal. Nothing is stopping Congress from voting to raise the debt limit today. The holdup is over how to reduce future budget shortfalls, which both

parties say must be done. Republicans want a huge cut in government spending. President Barack Obama wants smaller, but still substantial cuts, plus more money coming in from taxes, which Republicans oppose. To get around this, an idea has picked up steam to let the head of the household increase the debt limit on his own, under certain conditions, and take the heat off the fractious family to agree on all the spending cuts and revenue increases now. The government bought some time in the middle of May, when it stopped making payments to federal employee retirement funds, the equivalent of halting contributions to your 401(k). The government will make up the lost retirement investments later, plus interest, keeping the funds whole. But there are no such bookkeeping maneuvers left, Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner says, “no way to give Congress more time.” Some big payments are coming due, including $23 billion for Social Security checks on Aug. 2, $87 billion the next day to redeem maturing Treasury securities and more than $30 billion in interest payments on existing Treasury securities on Aug. 15.

COMPREHENSIVE REHABILITATION LOANS FOR HOUSING REHABILITATION The Community Development Division of the Planning and Development Services Department of the City of Lawrence has a limited amount of funds available for its comprehensive housing rehabilitation loan program.

The turnout was a pleasant surprise for Studio 804 professor Dan Rockhill. “It’s been fantastic,” he said. “We were wondering if we’d have 50 people, and I think we’ve had 500.” Located on KU’s West Campus, the elongated building covered in reclaimed limestone is integrated into the 80-year-old farmhouse and barn that was once part of the Chamney family dairy farm. The KANSAS building also UNIVERSITY has a wind turbine, solar panels, an electric-vehicle charging station and plants on the rooftop to soak up rain and insulate the building. The building is intended to transform the space into a showcase of sustainable design and green technology, and provide a location for meetings, conferences and classes. Students broke ground on the center in February and hustled in 100-degree heat to get it ready for Saturday’s open house. It was all worth it, said graduate Brian Winkeljohn, who was all smiles as he explained the water reclamation system he helped design on the outside of the building. “Many, many hours of sweat,” he said went into the project.

Street progress Summer street construction is never fun, but it’s a sign the city is making real progress on some long-overdue projects.

“S

top and go” may be the unofficial slogan of Lawrence this summer. Motorists who drive the city’s streets know what we’re talking about. Road construction is taking place on many of the city’s major streets. Among the locations that have been affected are Kasold Drive between Clinton Parkway and 31st Street, Sixth Street from Massachusetts to Iowa Street, Sixth Street between Folks and Monterey Way, Bob Billings Parkway between Kasold and Crestline, the Clinton Parkway and Inverness Drive intersection, and an everchanging list of downtown locations where crews are repairing crumbling curbs. If you think navigating the city has been challenging this summer though, just wait until next summer. Plans call for rebuilding Iowa Street between Harvard and the Irving Hill overpass, replacing the 23rd Street bridge near Haskell Indian Nations University, repaving Sixth Street west of Iowa and rebuilding Wakarusa Drive near Bob Billings Parkway. That’s right, Sixth Street, Iowa Street and 23rd Street all will have significant projects on them next year, likely all at the same time. For motorists, it is a pain, but it also is a sign of progress. After all, “stop and go” is a far better slogan than “drive and dodge.” That has been the reality for too long in Lawrence. Motorists were constantly dodging potholes and crumbling curbs that not only damage tires but also damage the reputation of our community. In many areas of the city, those issues still exist. In a very real way city residents asked for all this roadwork when they overwhelmingly approved a new sales tax in 2008 to fund additional infrastructure repairs. As economic growth continues to be stagnant, city commissioners will need to resist the temptation to skimp on street maintenance in order to balance budgets. We’ve traveled down that road before, and it is a mighty bumpy one. Thus far, commissioners have done well in keeping the commitment they made to voters who approved the new infrastructure tax. Still, it is unfortunate that so much work needs to be done. A city audit is forthcoming that examines the standards our streets were built to in the past. Too many streets have had to be rebuilt or repaired far to soon after they were built. Hopefully, that audit takes a hard, honest look at the issue and provides us a road map of pitfalls to avoid in the future. We certainly hope that the auditor is able to report that the city is building its streets to significantly higher standards today. Otherwise, this summer of costly construction truly would be unbearable.

Karzai’s brother put focus on Pakistan Ahmed Wali Karzai’s life and death sum up perfectly the Afghan trap in which America is caught. When I interviewed him in his Kandahar home on a May morning, after being ushered in by armed guards, there was already a queue waiting to see him. His cellphone never stopped ringing, nor did his fingers ever stop moving his worry beads, as he sat, legs crossed and feet bare, on one of the plush couches that lined his receiving room. After all, he was the half-brother of President Hamid Karzai and the godfather of southern Afghanistan. He was also a fluent Englishspeaker who had lived for years in Chicago, a corrupt wheelerdealer whom U.S. off icials believed was profiting from the drug trade and hurting our efforts to weaken the Taliban. For a while, U.S. diplomats and military brass tried to devise a way to remove AWK, as he was known; during this past year they gave up trying. In part, this was because of his brother’s unyielding support, but it was also because he could make things happen. He had the power to maneuver Afghan’s opaque tribal politics in a way that the Americans needed and never mastered. (Maybe that’s why the CIA had him on the payroll for years.) His murder by a close associate (perhaps sent by the Taliban) reminds us that security gains in Kandahar haven’t prevented assassinations of top officials. Karzai was the head of the provincial council, but he actually ran Kandahar. The provincial governor and city mayor are expatriate Afghans and Karzai

family friends; they served at his pleasure and will likely depart soon now that he’s gone. His most likely replacement — who will probably assume the job of governor — is another corrupt warlord. And yet, when I recall our conversation in May — and wonder whether he was shot in the room where we met — I realize he said things that deserve our attention. No doubt he told lies, and he was infuriating in his refusal to take blame for his actions. But AWK knew things that Americans must grasp if we want to leave Afghanistan any better off than before we came. Let me get to the infuriating part first, which was so in-yourface that it was grimly amusing.

Of course, he totally denied any connection with drugs or thievery, either by him or his family. I asked about a notorious Kandahar building project called Ay Nomina, with huge mansions built on government land sold cheaply to his brother Mahmoud and partners. AWK said he was building a house there, and that “Ay Nomina is one of the best projects in Afghanistan. No society in the world is equal. That is why communism failed and why capitalism is going good.” Of course it is also why so many Kandaharis despise the Kabul government headed by his brother. But AWK added, in a relevant aside: “The American presence here has nothing to do with my brother. You didn’t come here to fight a war against corruption, nor will you leave because of corruption. “Corruption happens everywhere. Don’t blame Afghans for small things. We can only fight corruption once we have security.” And then he reached the theme that erased his bored expression and animated his face. “You came to destroy terrorism and now you want to leave,” he spat out. But if America wants to leave, he went on, “you should stop Pakistan. Otherwise when you leave, the Taliban will return.” It became clear that for AWK, the only issue that mattered was Pakistan. If Pakistan didn’t stop providing a safe haven for Taliban, just across the border from Kandahar, then “all of the progress of the past 10 years will disappear. What would you do if Mexico brought enemies to a border town, trained them, and

sent them across? When is Pakistan going to stop?” AWK also poured scorn on the idea of talks with the Taliban, a goal the Obama administration is seeking, and one publicly embraced by President Karzai. “If anyone believes the Taliban is separate from al-Qaida, they are stupid,” he said. He argued such talks can only work from a position of strength, if the United States keeps bases in Afghanistan for some time yet: “If they decide to leave in a rush, Afghanistan will become a battleground,” with India and Russia arming opponents of the Taliban. “Pashtuns don’t want the Taliban,” he insisted, referring to Afghanistan’s largest ethnic group, to which the Taliban belong. “We have our own systems, our own mullahs. The Taliban don’t fit. We’ve never had a Mullah president (such as Taliban leader Mullah Omar) in all our history. “The Taliban are an ISI (Pakistani intelligence) movement,” he railed, used as a proxy in Pakistan’s war against India. “Tell Gen. (David) Petraeus, that clearing Afghanistan (of Taliban) means stopping Pakistan.” However self-serving were AWK’s arguments on corruption, his plea on Pakistan had the ring of truth. But I fear U.S. officials have no better ideas of how to separate Pakistan from its Taliban proxies than they did of how to remove Ahmed Wali Karzai (or how to replace him). The AWK “problem” is now history, but the Pakistan problem lives on. — Trudy Rubin is a columnist and editorial-board member for the Philadelphia Inquirer.

Jobs don’t match workers’ skills By Gene A. Budig and Alan Heaps

It is a time of universal discontent in the United States. Politicians talk a lot but do little of substance, with every move seemingly designed to assure their re-election. They all want to cut, cut, cut spending, but with little agreement on where — while the bloated national debt continues to grow by leaps and bounds. Sadly, relatively few seem focused on jobs, jobs, jobs, or at least with any degree of specificity. Meanwhile, the unemployment rate has passed 9 percent with more than 14 million able-bodied men and women out of work. But stunningly there are nearly three million jobs available today. Impossible? Not when you discover that many jobs are there, but workers with the right skills are not. America has a “skills gap,” as educators have been warning for months, with little recognition from policymakers and pundits. Simple numbers tell the story. The United States will create 47 million job openings from 2008 to 2018. Roughly a third will require a bachelor’s degree or higher. Another third will require an associate’s degree or a post-secondary occupational credit. And another third will require a high school diploma or less.

Here’s the problem: according to the College Board’s most recent college completion study, only about 40 percent of America’s 25 to 64 year olds have an associate degree or higher. And the number of those jobs requiring some form of post-secondary education continues to shift in demonstrable ways. In 1973 there were 25 million jobs available to people with at least some college or better. By 2007 the number had Budig grown to 91 million. The Bureau of Labor Statistics offers more fodder for the importance of college: the unemployment rate for those with less than a high school diploma is 13 percent; for those high school graduates with no college it is 10 percent; for those with some college or an associate degree it is 8 percent; and for those with a bachelor’s degree or higher the unemployment rate is 4 percent. “The dilemma is clear: We have millions of jobs without the people with the right training to fill them,” Gaston Caperton, president of the College Board, said. And it’s not for lack of trying. According to an estimate from the

Georgetown University Center on Education and the Workforce, some $772 billion is spent annually on postsecondary education and training, much of it is outside the formal postsecondary system. About 60 percent of it is spent by employers. The problem is a lack of coordination among those who expend money for education and training. This must be rectified with dispatch and has to include business, government, schools, four-year colleges, universities and the 1,200 community colleges. In this last group, enrollments are up 15 percent in the past two years alone but operational budgets have been reduced. The United States can address the “skills gap” problem with unselfish leadership and reasonable resources, some new and some redirected. The clock is moving ahead and the country requires a direct and coordinated response from those in the public and private sectors, a response offering best thoughts for immediate and sweeping action and a response filled with promise and hope. Clearly, the unemployed deserve no less. — Gene Budig is the former chancellor/president of three major state universities, including Kansas University, and past president of baseball’s American League. Alan Heaps is a vice president at the College Board in New York City.

To the editor: In reference to the SRS closing, I called the governor’s office and talked to an aide. I asked if the reference made about four-lane roads to other offices meant that one lane would be for those in Lawrence to travel by walking, walking with a cane or using a wheelchair — those that don’t have a car and depend on public transportation. The response was that only a minority of SRS recipients don’t have cars! When I asked him if he could back that up with statistics, he told me we had had a productive conversation and that was the end of the call. I think we as Lawrence recipients should help out the governor and new SRS boss by calling in and letting them know how many of us have a car to drive to wherever they send us! The new SRS boss would need to know since I was assured by this aide that he wants to make this better. I’ve learned statistics are what government officials like. Please help our elected officials realize that public assistance does not need to be moved from Lawrence. Debra Shirar, Lawrence

Soaring temps lead to water restrictions AUGUSTA — Triple-digit temperatures have led some Kansas communities to start restricting water usage and have left many farmers unable to pump enough from wells to satisfy thirsty crops. The U.S. Department of Agriculture earlier this month issued a drought disaster declaration for 49 Kansas counties. Some parts of the states have received less than half of their typical rainfall. The Wichita Eagle reported that the Augusta City Lake, which is surrounded by acres of dried out mud, could be tapped out as a water source by mid-August unless heavy rains or water conservation extends its life. Violations of outdoor water usage restrictions announced this past week can draw fines of $50 to $300 — and result in loss of service. If the drought continues, the city may consider closing pools and coin-operated car washes. Linda Williams, who has lived in a home near the edge of Augusta City Lake for 25 years, doesn’t like to watch her normally green front yard turn brown. “But we don’t have a choice. We’re all in the same boat so we may as well work together,” she said.

KU FOOTBALL: POSITION-BY-POSITION SERIES

Tight-end combo

By Gary Bedore gbedore@ljworld.com

LEAVENWORTH — Kansas University basketball players and coaches past and present were among the hundreds who packed Sacred Heart Church on Saturday morning for the funeral Mass of former Jayhawk assistant Neil Dougherty. Coaches and players from Texas Christian University — where Dougherty served as head coach from 2002-08 following a seven-year stint at KU — were also there to honor the man former KU coach Roy Williams called “a great person, a great coach, a Dougherty great family man, great father, great husband, a true gentleman who loved basketball and working with kids.” Williams, currently the head coach at North Carolina, flew in early Saturday with current UNC/former KU assistants Joe Holladay and Steve Robinson as well as former KU guard C.B. McGrath, also a member of Williams’ UNC staff. Former KU assistants Matt Doherty, head coach at SMU, and Ben Miller, head coach at UNC Pembroke, also attended. Former KU players in attendance included Brett Ballard, Jeff Boschee, Nick Bradford, Nick Collison, Drew Gooden, Kenny Gregory, Greg Gurley, Kirk Hinrich, Keith Langford, Scot Pollard, Wayne Simien, Bud Stallworth, Billy Thomas and Jacque Vaughn. Current KU assistant coaches Kurtis Townsend and Danny Manning attended, as did Barry Hinson, Jayhawk director of basketball operations; Scott Ward, KU associate AD/academic and career counseling; Wayne Walden, former KU academic adviser now at North Carolina; Richard Konzem, former KU associate athletic director, now AD at Rockhurst University; longtime KU broadcaster Max Falkenstien; as well as several former KU hoops managers and current staff members. Larry Hogan, who coached former Pioneer standout Dougherty at Leavenworth High, led a contingent of other former Pioneer coaches and staff members. Former NBA player/broadcaster Len Elmore, the CEO of iHoops, a company that employed Dougherty the past couple years, attended, as did other individuals from the Indianapolis-based company that teams with the NCAA to improve the quality of youth basketball in the U.S. Members of the National Association of Basketball Coaches also were in the church. Dougherty’s son, Neil Patrick, spoke at the end of the Mass.

KANSAS TIGHT END TIM BIERE CATCHES THE BALL during practice April 25 at KU’s practice field. Biere was KU’s top tight end last season.

Mundine will add excitement to Biere’s consistency By Matt Tait mtait@ljworld.com

For two straight springs, there has been one guy on the Kansas University football team whose name would pop up just about every time KU coach Turner Gill was asked by the media which players stood out to him the most. That player is senior tight end Tim Biere. Athletic, experienced, intelligent and talented, Biere has been a solid contributor for the Jayhawks in the passing game during the past couple of seasons. Last year, he led KU in touchdown receptions, with four, and also was fourth on the team with 228 yards and tied for third with 19 catches. It wasn’t necessarily his production that made Biere’s name pop to the top of Gill’s list. It was more because of his all-around effort

and the way he went about his business. “Tim Biere has stood out from a consistency standpoint,” Gill said after one spring practice. “He has a good time blocking and catching the football. He is playing with a passion, and that is really what I like to see.” That should not come as much of a surprise since that’s exactly what Biere is looking to contribute during his final season with the team. “I just hope to provide some leadership and have a strong year,” he said. “I’ve been here for a while, so, going into my last season, I should know what’s going to go on out there and be really comfortable. I want to have a strong senior season.” One thing that could make that a likely scenario is the presence of red-shirt freshman Jimmay Mundine, a player who stood out last

season on the scout team and has coaches buzzing about his impact this fall. Mundine’s potential to make big plays should allow Biere to concentrate more on moving the chains and blocking, and, together, the two should provide KU with a nice combination at one of football’s most overlooked positions. “Jimmay brings some athleticism and a little bit of excitement to the position,” Biere said. “He’ll catch the ball, and you’ll wonder what he’s doing out there, and then he’ll make great plays and shake everyone and score touchdowns.” It’s that kind of potential that led to Mundine landing at the top of the Journal-World and KUSports.com’s rankings of the team’s tight ends, the fifth in a summer position series that examines each group.

WOMEN’S WORLD CUP

Bumpy road looking pretty good now for U.S. FRANKFURT, GERMANY (AP) — The bumpy, windy road got the Americans right where they wanted to go all along. Eight months after having to win a playoff just to get to Germany, the Americans face Japan in the Women’s World Cup final today. A win would be the ultimate finish to their improbable journey, making the United States the first three-time champion and delighting a country of newfound fans. “I believe all the way we’ll find a way,” Carli Lloyd said Saturday after the team’s last training session. “It’s going to be a tough match like every other match has been, but I believe that we will find a way, and it’s our destiny to get it done.”

For a long time, the Americans were about the only ones who believed that. The U.S. is the No. 1-ranked team in the WORLD CUP world and defending FINAL Olympic When: 1 p.m. today champion, and the Americans Where: Frankfurt, have dominatGermany ed the TV: ESPN (cable women’s game channels 33, 233) for the better part of two decades now. But they arrived at the World Cup looking, well, kind of average. They were stunned in regional qualifying in November in Mexico, a team that hadn’t managed a win in its first 25 tries against its neighbor

to the north, and had to beat Italy in a two-game playoff for the very last spot in the World Cup. They opened the year with a loss to Sweden, then fell to England for the first time in 22 years — so long ago Alex Morgan hadn’t even been born yet. Then, after easy wins in their first two games in Germany, the Americans lost to Sweden again, their first loss ever in World Cup group play. “In the past, we’d always won everything,” captain Christie Rampone said. “Those losses made our team what it is today. We need each other and you feel that, from the locker room to the time we step on the field.”

SANDWICH, ENGLAND (AP) — Darren Clarke escaped the worst of the raging weather Saturday in the British Open, leaving him far less traffic on his unlikely road to a claret jug. Clarke was dressed in full rain gear when he walked to the first tee for a third round that had been crowded with contenders. When he walked off the 18th green in short sleeves, he was blinking in the bright sunshine over Royal St. George’s after a 1under 69 gave him a one-shot lead over Dustin Johnson. The majority of the field was still drying out from the brunt of such harsh conditions. There were 44 players within five shots of the lead going into the third round. Now there are 12. “If somebody had given me 69 before I was going out to play, I would have bitten their hand off for it,” Clarke said. “Saying that, we did get very fortunate with the draw. Sometimes to win any tournament, the draw can make a big difference. But in The Open Championship, it makes a huge difference. We got very lucky.” He also was very good. Clarke missed only two greens in regulation and was one of only three players who managed to break par. It was his third round in the 60s, and it put him at 5under 205 and into the final group of the British Open for the first time since 1997 at Royal Troon. That there are fewer contenders doesn’t make it any easier. Johnson, the powerful 27-yearold American, managed to make six birdies on his way to a 68 that puts him in the final group for the third time in the last six majors. The other two aren’t exactly glorious memories — an 82 to lose a three-shot lead at the U.S. Open last year, a two-shot penalty on the last hole of the PGA Championship when he didn’t realize he was in a bunker. “I’m going to be pretty comfortable out there tomorrow because I know what to expect, I know how to approach it, and I know what I do in those situations,” Johnson said. “So hopefully, I can go out tomorrow and play some solid golf like I’ve been doing the last few days.” Only four other players were under par, and while U.S. Open Please see OPEN, page 4B

Sporting K.C. plays Dynamo to draw HOUSTON (AP) — Aurelien Collin scored late in the second half, and Sporting Kansas City extended its unbeaten streak to 11 games with a 1-1 draw against the undermanned Houston Dynamo on Saturday night. Houston (5-6-9) played the final 21 minutes down two men, but stretched its unbeaten streak to four games and kept a one-point lead over Kansas City (5-6-8) for

fourth place in the Eastern Conference. Brad Davis gave Houston a 1-0 lead in the eighth minute on an unassisted direct kick from about 25 yards out to the right that found the net inside the far post. Collin tied the score in the 90th minute, hitting a low drive from 25 yards out in the middle that deflected off of Houston’s Kofi Sarkodie and into the middle of the net.

Houston thought it had taken a 2-0 lead in the 27th minute off Davis’ corner kick that was headed in by Brian Ching, but Houston’s Colin Clark was called offsides to negate the goal. Houston goalkeeper Tally Hall finished with eight saves. In a scary moment, Houston’s Jermaine Taylor and Kansas City’s Chance Myers were down on the field for several minutes after

Myers appeared to give Taylor a forearm to the head off a corner kick in the 30th minute. Myers reentered the game five minutes later, while Taylor re-entered in the 36th minute before being replaced by Bobby Boswell at the half. Houston played the game a man down for the final 39 minutes after Clark was given a straight red card in the 51st minute for a hard tackle on Collin.

By Mitch Albom Detroit Free Press

They got me. One afternoon, on a sunny Sunday when a trip to the ballpark would be more routine, I will actually flip on the TV and watch, live from Germany ... women’s soccer. Women’s soccer. This, a shrink might say, is a “breakthrough” moment. Or, as Abby Wambach might put it, “You’re finally using your head.” Wambach, the Derek Jeter of big moments in this year’s World Cup, is one irresistible element of a U.S. team that has erased the lazy mantra many (including myself) have relied upon through the years, namely, “Yeah, but it’s just women’s sports.” No disrespect to women’s sports. But a male fan has to come up for air now and then. With the NFL, NBA, MLB and NHL so ridiculously time-consuming, what man could contemplate adding the WNBA, U.S. softball team, or women’s soccer? When do you bathe? Or eat something that doesn’t come in a bag? You can’t just live on the couch, right? Well, come this afternoon, the couch will once again host my rear end. I am hooked by this plucky American squad. I like the way Wambach gives you a star to look for. I like watching goalie Hope Solo barely move on two penalty kicks, then guess right and make an amazing save on the next. I like when Megan Rapinoe tells the media of this sudden attention, “We don’t get it that much, so we’re living it up.” I want them to win. And I don’t think I’m alone. Granted, it happened fast. This wasn’t some Dream Team lock to win the tournament. These women hardly got coverage in the early rounds. (Their media contingent could apparently fit around a table.) But all it takes in American sports is one unforgettable highlight, and Wambach provided that against Brazil a week ago. The media horde now requires a corral. The TV highlights dominate. Hey, the women even won an ESPY this week — for a play that was only days old! And here I am, following the crowd. I admit, I’m a dinosaur on this. I wasn’t wrapped up in the 1999 women’s team celebration. During recent Olympic games — where our women soccer players have excelled — there was always some Michael Phelps or Kobe Bryant to steal my attention. And then, as I admit, I’ve put most of my eggs in the male sports basket. But one reason I’m watching this afternoon — and others are, too — is that here, in the midst of a football labor stoppage and a basketball labor stoppage and a Roger Clemens mistrial and a Pac Man Jones arrest, here comes a group of women who behave as if nothing could be better than the moment they are living. And today, if they pull off this inspired late surge, they will be hoisted on national shoulders. You know why? Because they play with joy. They celebrate with passion. They do interviews as if they’re thrilled to be asked a question. And I think sports has reached a saturation point: the simpler the better now. The newer, the more magical. The less moneyed, the more I’m interested. So it’s not a Super Bowl. So the skill level isn’t as fast as the men. I’m watching. Beginning to end. The essence of any sports story is still the story — not the gender — and this is a terrific story.

NORTH KOREA'S PLAYERS LEAVE THE PITCH FOR A DOPING TEST after the group C match against Colombia on July 6 at the Women’s Soccer World Cup in Bochum, Germany. A FIFA source said Saturday that five North Korean players have tested positive for steroids

Five North Koreans fail steroids tests at WWC FRANKFURT, GERMANY — North Korea officials blamed traditional musk deer gland medicine used after a lightning strike for five positive tests for steroids at the Women’s World Cup, the biggest soccer doping scandal at a major tournament in 17 years. FIFA President Sepp Blatter said Saturday after two players were caught during the tournament this month, the world soccer governing body took the unprecedented step of testing the rest of the North Korean squad and found three more positive results. “This is a shock,” Blatter said at a news conference. “We are confronted with a very, very bad case of doping and it hurts.” A North Korean delegation told Blatter and the head of FIFA’s medical committee on Saturday that the steroids were accidentally taken with traditional Chinese medicines based on the deer glands. “The North Korean officials said they didn’t use it to improve performance. They said they had a serious lightning accident with several players injured and they gave it as therapy,” said Michel D’Hooghe, chief of FIFA’s medical committee.

TOUR DE FRANCE Vanedert wins; Contador still lurks

WOMEN’S WORLD CUP Sweden tops France for third

SOUTH BEND, IND. — Desmond Howard shook his head and smiled. It has been 20 years since he won the Heisman Trophy at Michigan as an electrifying pass catcher and kick returner. To him it just doesn’t seem possible it happened so long ago. “Time just flies doesn’t it? Twenty years is unbelievable. That’s one of those things when somebody says it you kind of got to do the math in your head, like ‘Yeah I guess he’s right,”’ Howard said Saturday night when he was enshrined with 15 other players and four coaches into the College Football Hall of Fame.

SINSHEIM, GERMANY — Marie Hammarstrom scored in the 82nd minute Saturday, giving short-handed Sweden a 2-1 victory over France in the third-place game at the Women’s World Cup. Down a player for almost 15 minutes after Josefine Oqvist was sent off for kicking Sonia Bompastor in the chest, Sweden won a corner kick that the French managed to clear at the near post. But the ball popped out to Hammarstrom, who faked out a defender with a small side-volley, touched the ball a second time and then let fly with a thunderous leftfooted strike from the edge of the box.

PLATEAU DE BEILLE, FRANCE — Alberto Contador is clinging to his Tour de France title hopes. Despite the defending champion’s lessthan-dominating form, none of his rivals was able to knock him out of contention while he rode with a sore knee during three grueling stages in the Pyrenees. Although Andy Schleck padded his advantage over Contador by two seconds during Saturday’s 14th stage up to Plateau de Beille, his brother Frank and Australia’s Cadel Evans did not — finishing in the same time as the Spaniard behind stage winner Jelle Vanendert of Belgium. Thomas Voeckler retained the overall lead. Seventh overall, Contador trails secondplaced Andy Schleck by 1:45, Evans by 1:54 and Frank Schleck by 2:11.

Nathan gets save; Twins top K.C. M I N N E A P O L I S ( A P ) — Joe Nathan entered in a save situation Saturday night and received a rousing ovation from the hometown crowd. Quite a departure from a day ago, when Matt Capps was booed off the Target Field mound after another blown save. Nathan couldn’t contain a smile after returning to the role he wanted. The Minnesota fans certainly embraced the Twins’ new, old closer as he preserved a 4-3 victory over the Kansas City Royals. “Especially running in, it got a little louder than normal,” Nathan said of moving into the closer’s spot after pitching in a setup role recently. “Usually it’s like advertisements going on in the eighth inning. So, yeah, you’ve got to calm down a little bit more.” Michael Cuddyer singled home the go-ahead run in the eighth inning before Nathan did his job as the closer. Cuddyer, Minnesota’s lone All-Star representative, singled off Aaron Crow to drive in Alexi Casilla. Nathan f inished for his fourth save in seven chances. Earlier in the day, the Twins put the former All-Star back into his familiar role, replacing the struggling Capps. Nathan earned his first save since the Twins’ home opener. “For me, I try to treat it all the same,” Nathan said. “Obviously the stuff going on outside the field is the stuff that’s different, with the music playing, the crowd gets a little louder in the ninth, everything seems a little bigger in that inning. For myself and my own mental preparation, everything is the same.” Drew Butera added a solo home run for Minnesota. Glen Perkins (1-1) pitched a perfect eighth for the victory. Twins manager Ron Gardenhire left the stadium during the game due to an illness — he’s been dealing with a viral infection. Bench coach Scott Ullger f inished the game as the acting manager. Jeff Francis (3-11) lost his fifth straight decision, giving up four runs on seven hits and a walk.

NOT AS EASY AS IT LOOKS Just as setting a listing price is ultimately your decision, so is whether to accept an offer. These days, it can be difficult to decide if an offer is a good one, because there are so many influential factors. Getting an offer is the first positive step. Now take a deep breath and consider your options. Are you under pressure to move? Whether it’s finances, family, or a job transfer, the urgency of your need to move may dictate accepting an offer lower than you had expected.

than what you owe, so pay close attention to how depreciation and closing costs affect your bottom line before making the decision to accept or counter an offer. Another important factor to consider is whether or not the buyer is pre-approved for financing. If so, you can expect a quicker closing with no surprises, and confidently begin the pursuit of purchasing your next home. Even a lower offer from a pre-approved buyer may be better than a higher offer from one whose financing falls through at the last minute.

Likewise, how much debt do you still Remember, offers are about negotiation carry on your mortgage? Unless you and compromise. Be flexible and are listing under “short sale” terms, you reasonable when considering any and all don’t want to accept an offer that’s less offers that come your way.

champion Rory McIlroy isn’t one of them, in his place is another 22-year-old who plays without fear and makes it look fun. And no one played better than Rickie Fowler on this wild day of weather. Fowler was soaked, zipped up in a cream-colored rainsuit for two-thirds of his round, yet it never seemed to bother him. He hung around par during the worst of the conditions — a remarkable feat — and when the rain went away, he took off to higher ground. Fowler made three birdies over the last six holes for a 68 and was two shots behind, along with Thomas Bjorn (71). Lucas Glover, a U.S. Open champion who played in the final group Saturday, made 10 straight pars early in his round only to lose his way, but not his hopes over the final hour. Glover missed two birdie putts inside 6 feet on the back nine and made two bogeys. He shot 73, but still

Watson shines in stormy weather SANDWICH, ENGLAND (AP) — Amid the 30 mph winds and horizontal rainstorms that wreaked havoc at Royal St. George’s on Saturday, one man with nearly 40 years of links experience stood tall. Playing with a smile that never left his face, Tom Watson reveled in the kind of fierce weather conditions that brought many of the early starters to their knees in a wet and wild third round at the British Open. Watson’s 2-over 72 wasn’t the lowest score of the day, but it may have been the most impressive. “You know, if we had weather like we had this morning the entire tournawas within four shots. He was tied with Miguel Angel Jimenez, who didn’t make a birdie in his round of 72. Also still in the mix is Phil Mickelson, who has only contended once in the British Open. He rallied when the sun began to break through the

ment, I don’t know who’s going to beat him,” Phil Mickelson said. “He played in the worst of it, and I think he shot about as well as anybody did.” Jason Day said Saturday had been his toughest day in golf. Edoardo Molinari described the conditions as “a joke.” Watson merely called them “bothersome.” “The challenge of dealing with conditions on a course like this is, it’s fun,” said the 61-year-old American. “I kind of liked that forecast yesterday, when it said it was going to get nasty out there. It worked out well for me today.” clouds and salvaged a 71, leaving him five shots back in a group that included Anthony Kim (68), PGA champion Martin Kaymer (73) and Ryder Cup captain Davis Love III, who tied for fourth at Royal St. George’s in 2003 and had a 72 to stay in range.

He stated that his dad’s heart, which gave out on a run in Indianapolis on July 5, “never failed any of us.” He related many of his dad’s special mannerisms. “‘This is the easy part (of life),’” Neil Jr., recalled his dad telling family members and players alike when confronting trying times. Survivors include wife Patti, who lives in Fort Worth, Texas; Neil Jr., who lives in South Carolina; daughter, Megan, who lives in Keller, Texas; and son Ryan, a basketball player at Southwest Baptist in Bolivar, Mo. The Jayhawks had time to visit and share memories of Dougherty at a luncheon in the church hall. “Everybody should remember every day he contributed something,” former KU coach Williams said of Dougherty. “He tried to help players, students, his family. He is a person who every day tried to get something done for the good.” KU All-American Simien, who like Dougherty grew up in Leavenworth, said he would remember Dougherty’s “consistency, his excellence. He was an excellent player, coach, man of character and integrity, husband, father. He did things the right way in every area of life. He was an example for me growing up. “His family is a pillar in Leavenworth. The park I played ball at is named after his grandfather. The family has lived in Leavenworth for generations.” Many members of that community were among those who packed the church to honor Dougherty, 50, who will be interred in Fort Worth, Texas.

Special to the Journal-World

Judith Levy’s artwork has always tried to tell a story. Working as an artist, writer and director, she merges real-world facts with the slightly fantastical to create what she calls “faux documentaries” — films explaining her take on problematic subject matters. “I’m inspired by my great love of history and my love of fiction,” she says. Recently, Levy was awarded a Rocket Grant for her work, “NV in KC.” She says the project is a look at one of the most difficult emotions for artists to deal with: envy. “It’s a touchy subject among artists,” she says. “We want to take a look at how it affects people personally and how it’s been looked at historically. It’s a very strong human feeling to have, and it’s one that artists don’t talk about and feel bad about.”

Designed to help grow burgeoning art scenes nationwide, the Rocket Grants, funded by the Andy Warhol Foundation and distributed by Kansas University’s Spencer Museum of Art and Kansas City’s Charlotte Street Foundation, awarded 10 regional artists and art groups $4,000 each June 15. The project also focuses on bringing art to those people who normally wouldn’t view it and on nontraditional forms of art. Julia Cole, Rocket Grants program coordinator at Charlotte Street, says the Kansas City/Lawrence art scene is highly regarded by the Warhol foundation and is one of only four markets nationwide to receive this funding. All artists within an 80-mile radius of Kansas City may be considered for the award. “The Warhol Foundation is impressed with the Kansas City art scene,” Cole says, “so Please see GRANTS, page 6B

hat are you looking at?” my husband asked, as I stood at the front door, staring out the window. “We’re in an excessive heat warning,” I replied, soberly. “A what?” (He still hasn’t purchased that hearing aid. Yes, it’s still an issue.) “Excessive. Heat. Warning,” I sighed, already exasperated by the discussion. “Defined by the National Weather Service as an extreme heat index making it feel very hot, typically above 110 degrees Fahrenheit for three hours or more during the day for two consecutive days, or above 110 at any time. Specific criteria varies over different county warning areas.” “You look like you’re waiting for a tornado or ice storm, or something,” he observed. “This is going to be a lot worse than a tornado or ice storm,” I snapped, wiping my brow with a bandana, for practice. He knew I was right. Because as horrible as tornadoes and ice storms are, they don’t wreak havoc on my disposition like extreme heat can. Not to be insensitive to the aftermath of natural disasters, but

I could always find something to enjoy about storms. As a kid, on those rare occasions when the sirens would blare, I used to love taking cover in the basement with my Monkees sleeping bag and transistor radio at hand. It was thrilling and cozy at the same time. Sometimes, there would be Twinkies. Even now, when TV meteorologists start tracking a blizzard moving into the plains, I rush eagerly to the market to stock up on comfort food, with my fellow overzealous neighbors. We delight in trading forecasts (“I heard 8 inches by midnight!” “The radio said 10-to12!”), and those tired but true maxims (“That’s Kansas for ya. Don’t Please see BOOMER, page 6B

A few weeks back I was scrolling through Facebook and came across a link to the Dear Photograph project, which was shared by several of my friends. If you haven’t seen it yet, go to dearphotograph.com. It’s worth a long look. People bring old photographs to the exact locations where

they were shot years ago. Then, quite literally, you take a picture of that old picture in the location as it looks today. We’re excited to announce a Lawrence community project to do the same thing in our community. We’re calling it Dear Lawrence, but more about that in a minute.

like the weather, wait a minute!”) With triple-digit heat indices, there’s no nervous excitement. No over-reactive shopping. No bonding. Just extreme dread and excessive bitching. The dread sets in before I get out of bed in the morning. “I can’t go out there,” I’ll whine. “Please, don’t make me.” “Come on,” my spouse will say. “Take a cold shower, put your hair up. It won’t be that bad.” “But, it WILL be He’s that bad. It thinking was that about bad yesterputting the day.

It’s just old wives’ twaddle!” Somehow, I manage to drag myself to work. There, the complaining continues, peppered by the occasional idle threat: “The next person who utters the words ‘Hot enough for ya?’ will be forced to sit in my 120degree car, windows rolled up, while I’m inside the Dairy Queen dining on Flamer-Thrower burgers and Triple Chocolate Blizzards! Any questions?!?” Not the way to make friends and influence people. But, it’s at home — in the hot and sweaty bosom of my family — where my inner she-devil rears her ugly head: “Don’t even think about touching me!” I’ll say, before my husband even crosses the threshold. The man is drenched with perspiration. His shirt clings to his belly like Handi Wrap. He’s thinking about putting the moves on a cold Pale Ale, not his clammy wife. Even a quick trip outside to collect the newspaper or harvest a bit of basil renders me despondent. A full-on outing to the grocery store? That requires a minimum of four hours post-errand convalescence. “Would you like some iced tea, dear?” my spouse will say, careful to maintain a 10foot distance from where I sprawl on the couch. “Just…put it on …the table…” I’ll sputter, mopping my neck with a bath sheet. “And change the channel, would you? That Jim Cantore on the Weather Channel is starting to look like Satan. I must be hallucinating.” I try to be nice. I really do. I avoid situations where my temper could flare uncontrollably, and I think positive thoughts of owning a summer home in Faz, Antarctica. I’m planning a “Pollyanna” marathon, starting tonight. In the meantime, for those of you suffering, as I am, from the dog day blues, I’ve got an idea. Grab your Monkees sleeping bags and transistor radios, and join me in the basement.

they awarded us with this grant. They wanted it to be a regional award, so not just in the Kansas City area. So, we’re working with the Spencer. There really is a sense of ‘get out and build a strong community in this entire region,’ so we’ve worked together as partners to implement the program.” This is the second year of funding for the Rocket Grants, a program Cole says has recently been renewed by the Warhol Foundation for another two years. Cole is confident the funding will continue into the future. “Sometime in the next 18 months or so we’ll be doing a bigger review of the process and going back to them to apply for more, longer-term, funding. In terms of whether things will change with the kind of work or the kind of outreach, in the fall we’ll review how this round has gone and discuss whether we want to expand or change.” Cole says that Charlotte Street and the Spencer always try to keep a pulse on what local artists are looking for in regards to support. She says the goal is to assist artists, whether they win a Rocket Grant or not. “We do try to evaluate what’s working and what things can actually be improved to help artists. One of the things we’ve done so far is, on both rounds, we’ve given feedback after their applications.

Volunteers will serve as the chickens’ guardians each time the coop is relocated. At the end of March, the chickens will be humanely butchered and the public is invited to watch.

about the Dear Photograph idea is you don’t have to know any of the people in any of the photos to understand the sense of nostalgia that old photos bring. It’s a tribute to memories, but also a tribute to photographs as physical relics of those memories. I’ve emailed, tweeted and “Facebooked” photos a hundred or a thousand times recently, but I can’t remember the last time I made a print. Looking through the site, certain submissions concentrate on portraying the changing landscape, while others highlight people we’ve lost or places that have gone away. Some of the most effective are those that create a feeling of perseverance — by showing just how little has changed in the scenery. In light of the popularity of the project, we’re organizing a Lawrence edition and we need your help. LJWorld.com and the Lawrence Journal-World are currently taking submissions for the “Dear Lawrence Project,” which will be modeled after Dear Photograph. In addition to posting the submissions in a photo gallery on LJWorld.com and on Facebook, we will choose and print selected entries that best convey a sense of nostalgia, change or perseverance. We’re also organizing a show of featured photographs working at the News Center, 645 New Hampshire, during Final Fridays on Aug. 26, 2011. We’ll highlight contributions from our own photographers, community photographers and those taken by members of the community. To submit, email high-res-

Don’t be afraid to make it personal. They are your photographs. There aren’t really any rules, and the photos don’t have to be from Lawrence. Most of you will have some connection to Lawrence or live within close proximity, but if not, that’s OK, too. You’ll just have to travel farther than others to see your work displayed! Our primary requirement is that the photos be shot in the same location where they were originally taken. Not everything has to line up exactly, and in many cases it won’t matter how hard you try. Trust me. We do ask that the use of Photoshop be kept to a minimum; cropping and a bit of contrast and color toning is OK. Cloning and other altering techniques are frowned upon. We’re going by the honor system, but use your best judgment. We will be accepting submissions from right now until 6 p.m. Aug. 15. If you submit through Facebook, we may contact you for more info in the event that we choose your image or images for the show. If you email the submission, make sure to include your name somewhere in the body of the email. Enough. Good luck and have fun! — Photographer Nick Krug can be reached at nkrug@ljworld.com.

support. Upon receiving a grant, recipients then have a year to produce their project. To apply: 2011 applications are closed at this time, but more information, including the status of grant recipients’ projects, application announcements and deadlines can be found at the Rocket Grant blog, rocketgrants.wordpress.com.

Dobbins’ project, in partnership with Kelly John Clark, is Field Trip Publishing, an organization that will design, publish and distribute local artists’ works. The goal is to push artists out of their usual niche while creating various types of media, everything from T-shirts to prints to stickers, magazines and more. “I would say (a Rocket Grant) helps folks develop projects that they hadn’t thought about,” Dobbins says. “For me, it was taking on an idea that I’d had and a practice I’d developed so I could expand upon it and it could become something useful that would be more community-based. “I think this was a perfect fit for where I was and the work I was looking to do. Basically, seeing this opportunity and feeling like I needed to pursue it. If anything, even if I didn’t receive any money, this process was helpful.”

Long-awaited dance Fifth book in beloved ‘Ice and Fire’ series doesn’t disappoint By Sam Thielman Newsday

The world of George R.R. Martin’s “A Song of Ice and Fire” is wonderfully huge. It has its own illnesses, religions and politics; its own disturbing and believable brand of magic; and, above all, its beautifully wrought characters — even more of them in the fifth and latest book, “A Dance With Dragons.” At more than 4,000 pages to date (and a projected seven volumes total), the fantasy series is on its way to being one of the longest ever written. Readers have complained. Specifically, they have comPasi Hellman, plained that the fourth book industrial management did not have enough characmajor, ters in it, and that Martin is Salo, Finland taking too long to write the “I just read hockey magazines. I’ve been playing damn things. So read “Ice and Fire,” but hockey since I was 4 or 5 so beware: If you finish the last it’s everything. It’s a lifestyle.” one before Martin finishes writing the next, you will suffer. The books are told from the perspectives of a rotating cast, and it’s a terrible thing when you haven’t heard from your favorite character in a while. Here’s the last we heard of my favorite, the female would-be knight Brienne, last seen searching the fictional kingdom of Westeros for her Conor Grier, matron’s daughter graphic designer, in Book Four: Lawrence “’The Alchemyst’ by Michael “sucked the air in desperately, even as Scott. It’s kind of along the the rope was stranlines of Harry Potter as far as gling her. Nothing it’s fantasy. It’s got some kids had ever hurt so who are in trouble and much.

AUTHOR GEORGE R. R. MARTIN, pictured at the 2011Time 100 gala, just released “A Dance With Dragons,” the longawaited fifth book of a projected seven in his “Song of Ice and Fire” series, which has also become a popular HBO drama. the page when you’re reading. “The world was simpler when I had a lord commander to decide such matters,” an elderly soldier thinks as he tries to navigate the world of spies and assassins. “Now I am the lord commander, and it is hard to know which path is right.” “A Dance With Dragons” is also one of the few fantasy books in recent memory (and Martin wrote most of the others) that can boast a straightforward and attractive prose style. The vocabulary is blessedly unpretentious, and look at the cadence: “A child emerged from a pool of darkness, a pale boy in a ragged robe, no more than nine or

ten. Another rose up behind chair. The girl who had opened the door for him was there as well. They were all around him, half a dozen of them, white-faced children with dark eyes, boys and girls together. And in their hands, the daggers.” “A Dance With Dragons” follows the surviving members of the noble, ascetic Stark family, notably Jon Snow, illegitimate son of the late Stark patriarch. Jon leads what amounts to the kingdom’s border patrol, an illsupplied crew of ex-cons and exiles called the Watch, who guard the realm against monsters that live north of its great wall of ice. “Dance” also tracks the progress of the Lannisters, another highborn family more or less at war with the Starks. The scabrous dwarf

Tyrion Lannister, played to great acclaim by Peter Dinklage in the HBO series, was absent from the last book, having murdered his father and fled Westeros. We get a lot more of him in “Dance,” and it’s like seeing an old friend. He has become the books’ moral core as well as their witty comic relief. We also get more of Daenerys Targaryen — “Dany” — the rightful queen of Westeros, exiled and ruling the distant city of Meereen. By standing up to the tyrannical class of elite slave merchants that runs Meereen, she is slowly destroying the city against her will; arcane forces of good and evil are less at issue here than everyday problems of right and wrong. Frequently, characters desperate to kill one another are equally likable; the climactic murder in “Dance” is all the more tragic for the fact that the murderers are convinced they’re doing the right thing. (They’re not.) The fourth main character, Theon Greyjoy, has so far been one of the series’ most unsympathetic. Arrogant and hot-tempered, Theon has been rotting in prison since Book Two. Now, Martin forces our perception of an old antagonist to change — a task that clearly delights him. Every chapter starts with the focal character’s name (“Tyrion,” “Jon,” “Daenerys”), but Theon has been tortured so badly that he can’t remember who he is — his chapters are titled “Reek” and then “Turncloak” (cruel nicknames) and later “A Ghost in Winterfell.” When he f inally decides between bravely risking further torture on the one hand and continuing to live like one of his jailer’s dogs on the other, it’s difficult not to choke back tears. Half the fun of “A Song of Ice and Fire” comes from the shocking deaths, impossible resurrections and discarded disguises — many of which aren’t obvious on your first trip through the book. Martin has constructed the story on two levels — one for the reader powering through to the tragic, deliberately Shakespearean finale, another for that same reader going back to find what he missed. While you’re waiting, reread.

TRYING THEIR HANDS AT FICTION

Justin Long, IT help desk employee, Lawrence “’Y: The Last Man’ by Brian K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra. It’s a graphic novel. It’s about this guy and his pet monkey trying to survive in a world without men. It starts off with a plague that wipes out anything with a Y chromosome.”

Ben Hebiger, roofing and painting contractor, Lawrence “Pope Benedict’s ‘Jesus of Nazareth.’ His whole premise goes after historical criticism. It’s this identity with who he was and what he did and it gives you a whole different perspective.”

Actor’s Western novel is a good yarn By Douglass K. Daniel Associated Press

“Payback at Morning Peak” (Pocket Books), by Gene Hackman: While some of his fellow actors were busy writing memoirs, Gene Hackman was working on his first solo novel. We know from movies like “Unforgiven” and “Bite the Bullet” that the Oscar winner can ride a horse, but how well can he wrangle Western fiction? Just fine, it turns out. “Payback at Morning Peak” is a satisfying revenge tale that takes place in New Mexico, a place Hackman called home long before he retired

from the screen in 2004. He sets his story at a time when the American Southwest was still a lively and, at times, lawless frontier. Just shy of 18, Jubal Young is a good boy schooled in literature by an educated mother and brought up on the land by an honest, hardworking father. When a dispute over their farm in the shadow of Morning Peak turns violent and Jubal loses all he loves, he tries to put aside a yearning for immediate retribution and to seek

justice instead. Justice isn’t easy to come by. Bad men set their own rules, and most lawmen don’t pay much attention to a teenager. That puts Jubal in the middle, leaving him the diff icult task of pursuing a pack of killers without landing himself in jail or taking a bullet. His internal challenge isn’t to give in to vengeance and cruelty, lest his parents’ true legacy die with them. Hackman has co-authored three historical novels since 1999. Writing on his own with

“Payback at Morning Peak,” he takes aim at a clear target: telling a good story. He hits it, too, engaging the reader with interesting characters and a galloping plot. There is more than a bit of familiarity in the goings-on — the love interest is too predictable — and Jubal’s politeness can take the vigor out of a scene. In a sense, Hackman’s “Morning Peak” lies in Louis L’Amour country, a place where the conventions of the Western novel are as welcome as a man of honor and a pretty young lady. Riding a trail of his own making, Hackman takes hold of the reins with confidence.

Songwriter’s fiction debut is tantalizing, bold By Kim Curtis For The Associated Press

“Bright’s Passage” (The Dial Press), by Josh Ritter: Even a gifted songwriter cannot necessarily sustain a compelling tale for the length of a novel. Luckily, Josh Ritter is an exception. He called his debut work of fiction a “short little comedy.” Yes, it’s short — less than 200 pages — but it’s more poignant than funny, and it reads like a fable or a

myth, but without any pat conclusions or preachy morality. “Bright’s Passage” tells the story of a World War I veteran who returns home to West Virginia and his young bride. After his wife dies in childbirth, Henry Bright cares for his newborn son, seeks the company of a goat and allows himself to be led — both in life-altering decisions and escaping a deadly wildfire — by an angel who may or may not be his talking horse.

It sounds far-fetched — and it is — but under Ritter’s capable first-time authorship, it becomes a charming, sweet and highly readable novel. Ritter is an economical writer — not wasting a single word or sentence. His imagery is bold, tantalizing, and he never indulges the easy, well-worn route of description. For example, in one of his battle scenes, Henry and a fellow soldier must move his wounded ser-

geant out of harm’s way. “It was terrible ground to carry a man over, and Carlson’s feet shambled loosely against the pebble and debris as his legs began the process of forgetting how to walk.” For all his book’s strengths, Ritter makes a few minor missteps — like Bright keeping his ailing infant alive by feeding him finger dips of goat’s milk — but they’re not enough to mar the novel or keep readers from looking forward to his next book.

ARTS NOTE Students participate in Broadway at Baker

RALPH FIENNES portrays Lord Voldemort in a scene from “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2,” which opened this week. Kansas University English associate professor Giselle Liza Anatol has put together her second in-depth book about the Potter literary legacy, titled “Reading Harry Potter Again: New Critical Essays.”

KU professor’s essay collection explores cultural themes in ‘Harry Potter’ By Eric Melin Special to the Journal-World

This weekend, the final Harry Potter movie adaptation “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2” closes the book on a film series in which the three lead actors grew up right before our eyes. Millions of the series’ young readers have done the same thing over the years. In fact, the popularity of J.K. Rowling’s magical novels with young and adult audiences alike is incalculable. Taking into consideration the substance behind the stories, a Kansas University English professor has put together her second in-depth book about the Potter literary legacy, titled “Reading Harry Potter Again: New Critical Essays.” Associate Professor of English Giselle Liza Anatol edited the book, which views Rowling’s novels in a larger sociocultural context, focusing specif ically on such issues as race, gender, religion, morality and class. “Many people believe that contemporary narratives for children are simply fun and entertaining. They don’t think kids stories can possess any substance,” she says. “When you take a series like Harry Potter, though, that so, so many children and adults have read — and read over and over and over again — you must consider the immense influence on not just individual readers, but our culture and society as a whole,” she says. “People are not just absorbing the excitement and magic and adventure, but the social and cultural values that are imbedded within the stories.” The professor also teaches a children’s literature course

that focuses on literary analysis. Students are challenged to think more deeply about the Potter books, allowing them to debate some of the issues that originally made the books somewhat controversial. Some Christian conservatives banned and even burned Harry Potter books when the series was first released, in objection to its depiction of magic. Because witchcraft and sorcery were woven into the fabric of the story, the novels were portrayed as something that was, Anatol says, “antithetical to ‘true Christian values.’” “Over the years, however, many ministers, rabbis and even religious leaders who once spoke out against the novels have incorporated themes from the series into their sermons, lectures and radio shows,” she says. “Rebecca Stephens and Peggy Lin Duthie both write about shifts in the religious controversy in their chapters in ‘Reading Harry Potter Again.’ ” Because of the popularity of the books, many students in Anatol’s class are not reading them for the first time. The interaction and class discussion is important because each reader’s experience and perception of the world will affect their own personal interpretation of the books. “Some things that seem obvious to my students often surprise me, and ideas I might take for granted have not been considered by them,” she says. Anatol collected new critical essays for the book and asked other authors — English professors, philosophy professors and religious scholars — to update their contributions to the first volume.

People are not just absorbing the excitement and magic and adventure, but the social and cultural values that are imbedded within the stories.” — Kansas University English associate professor Giselle Liza Anatol Michael Johnson, a KU alumnus and associate professor of American literature at the University of MaineFarmington, contributed the new book’s last chapter, which focuses specifically on the film adaptation of the third Potter book, “Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.” The movie is his favorite of the adaptations partially because director Alfonso Cuaron was able to interpret the book rather than simply summarize it. By f inding ways to translate Rowling’s literary themes — such as the relativity of time — into visual cues, Cuaron gets the same ideas across in a different medium. “There's no clock tower in the novel, but the visual image of the clock tower at Hogwarts — which we see and hear throughout the movie — effectively translates into visual terms the novel's interest in time,” Johnson says. “J. K. Rowling uses timerelated words throughout the book (always, still, forever, Sunday, yesterday, etc.), and the film replaces the verbal references to time with visual and aural ones.” In the new edition, Anatol herself writes about Harry Potter in terms of racial metaphors and diversity. Besides the literal represen-

tations of characters of color, a strong anti-racism message permeates the books. Real-life white supremacists are represented by the wizards who fight for the dominance of magical purebloods, while Harry and his friends believe in equality in the magical world, regardless of bloodline. According to Anatol, Rowling herself has made the connection between the novels’ villain Lord Voldemort and Adolf Hitler. The parallels don’t stop with humans, however. Even the books’ non-human magical beings evoke racial groups. “The enslaved house-elves parallel enslaved Africans. The giants, who are grouped in ‘tribes’ and have been ‘dyin’ out fer ages,’ appear to represent First Nations peoples (American Indians, Maori people, indigenous Australians, etc.),” Anatol says. As Harry’s struggle between accepting his fate and embracing his own free will comes to a close in theaters this weekend, audiences will have to accept that the journey is truly over. But the themes within the books are eternal ones. Anatol has her own interpretation of Rowling’s message on that subject. First she points to a quote from Rowling, who once stated, “The idea that we could have a child who escapes from the confines of the adult world and goes somewhere where he has power, both literally and metaphorically, really appealed to me.” “Because she is so focused on giving her young characters and readers a sense of empowerment,” Anatol says, “I believe her ultimate goal is to privilege choice and free will.”

The Potter prizes: Here’s to the best in the series McClatchy Newspapers

Take your Oscars, your Emmys, your P ulitzers. Today, we give you the Potter Prizes, the f irst and last awards devoted entirely to Harry Potter films. In honor of the f inal movie in the series, “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2,” which opened last week, we’ve chosen an array of favorites from the seven previous films, the characters, critters, curses and more that have made the Potter world such a magical place to visit. Most magical scene: Harry’s first dinner at Hogwarts in “Sorcerer’s Stone,” with the Great Hall lighted by floating candles. Best locale: As much as we’d like to visit Diagon Alley and its Eeylops Owl Emporium, or Hogsmeade Village and the Three Broomsticks pub, the school of Hogwarts is the heart of the Harry Potter series. With its moving staircases and portraits come to life, Hogwarts is pure magic. Best parents: The senior Weasleys, Arthur and Molly, give little Harry the first real

family he’s ever known. Favorite Muggles: Mr. and Mrs. Granger, Hermione’s parents, are proud of their daughter’s unexpected skills at magic. Most satisfying misuse of magic: Hagrid gives Harry’s horrible cousin Dudley Dursley a pig’s tail in “Sorcerer’s Stone.” Handiest spell: Sure, spells like the Patronus have pizazz and deserve to be recognized, but the Accio summoning charm is one that could replace all others. Instead of using the killing curse, just use Accio to summon a gun. Instead of Lumos, just summon a flashlight. And this would be so handy in the Muggle world, too. Imagine how much easier it would be to find our keys? Best supporting villain: No denying that Voldemort is the worstest with the mostest, but among the hordes of assistant bad chaps (including assorted Slytherins, various Malfoys and Bellatrix Lestrange), Dolores Umbridge, putrid in pink, calmly owns every scene she’s in.

Most efficient (yet risky) mode of transportation: Get in the fireplace, drop floo powder and transport. But remember to speak your destination clearly. When Harry, needing school supplies, mispronounced “Diagon Alley” in “Chamber of Secrets,” he went diagonally. Most annoying character: Ron’s girlfriend (briefly), Lavender Brown, was known for her penchant for baby talk and obnoxiously clinging ways. Favorite magical creature: Potter world is filled with magical creatures, from elves to centaurs to dragons and more, but Buckbeak is both a plot device and a unique creature—a hippogriff, part horse and part griffon, last seen in literature about the time of the Italian Renaissance. Best friend: Without Hermione Granger’s book smarts and magical talent, Harry would not have been able to transform with Polyjuice Potion in “Chamber of Secrets” or travel through time in “Prisoner of Azkaban.” And she’s the most

loyal of friends. In the dangerous hunt for horcruxes in “Deathly Hallows: Part 1,” Ron abandons the group in a snit, but Hermione stays by Harry’s side. Best star turn: Kenneth Branagh glowed as Gilderoy Lockhart, the second-year teacher of defense against the dark arts. Handsome, narcissistic, vainglorious and fivetime winner of “Witch Weekly’s” Most-Charming-Smile Award, Lockhart is a complete fraud. Branagh plays him to the hilt, gloriously over the top. Best movie: “Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban,” directed by Mexican visionary Alfonso Cuaron (“Children of Men”), was the shortest, trippiest and least lucrative of the series. A scene on a bus where a dreadlocked shrunken head provided wisecracking commentary was a welcome relief from the suffocating fussiness of Hogwarts. (Runner-up: “Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix,” which dared to decry the fascist foundation beneath the war on terror.)

BALDWIN CITY — Baker University and Music Theatre for Young People will present “Anything Goes” at 2:30 p.m. today at Rice Auditorium. The performance concludes a weeklong Broadway at Baker camp, where talented students receive instruction in all aspects of musical theatre production, vocal music dance and drama from faculty members, musical theatre veterans and director Cary DanielsonPandzik. “Anything Goes” features the story of the S.S. American, sailing from New York to England, carries an unusual group of passengers: a gangster (Moonface Martin), a wealthy debutante and her mother (Hope and Evangeline Harcourt), a nightclub singer (Reno Sweeny), and a wealthy New York businessman and his

stowaway assistant (Elisha Witney and Billy Crocker). It turns out that Hope is Billy’s long-lost love. Unfortunately, she is now engaged to a wealthy Englishman, Lord Evelyn Oakleigh. After a series of comedic happenings, Billy manages to win back Hope. Admission is $8 for people 13 and older, and $5 for senior citizens and children.

Some â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;fauxâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; will fly with collectors By Terry Kovel

Sometimes â&#x20AC;&#x153;fakeâ&#x20AC;? is fine in the world of collectors. There are examples of â&#x20AC;&#x153;fauxâ&#x20AC;? marble made from plain white marble with a skillfully painted marblelike pattern. Inexpensive woods were grain-painted. Jewelry was made with foil-backed glass that resembled diamonds. All of these â&#x20AC;&#x153;fakesâ&#x20AC;? can be valuable today. One of the most interesting uses of substitute materials dates from the late19th century. Asian ideas influenced designers then, and bamboo furniture became popular. But bamboo is soft and flexible, and is not strong enough for large, heavy pieces. So some American makers began to make faux bamboo from birds-eye maple. Bedroom sets that included beds, dressers, small side tables and washstands looked like bamboo but actually were maple. A top-quality furniture company, R.J. Horner of New York, sold many of these sets to upper-class New York City families. This well-made furniture is a bargain today, lower in price than it was five years ago.

As

a plant lover, I know how easily I get caught up in trees and shrubs and flowers. A beautiful landscape is much more than plants, though. It is dependent upon the lines and curves that lead your eye to emphasize just the right points and upon the structure that forms and frames it. The symmetric circles of Lawrence residents Richard and Amy Wendtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s flagstone patio, water feature and outdoor fireplace offer an outstanding example of curves and hardscape that make the landscape greater. The Wendts added the outdoor entertaining area to their landscape as a replacement to the kidsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; play area. They knew that redoing the area was about more than just planting a few things. To get the right look, they decided to hire local landscape architect Reed Dillon. Amy says they really had no doubt about who to hire. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He did all the work on the landscape out front, and people always stop to ask about it.â&#x20AC;? For their back yard, though, the Wendts wanted something a little different than the formal landscape out front. They wanted a space to spend time together as a family and to entertain. Amy had seen outdoor fireplaces a few times before and really wanted one. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This area also had a bit of drainage problem,â&#x20AC;? Amy says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;so we wanted to resolve that and have a nice space. We definitely enjoy being outdoors.â&#x20AC;? Dillon, of Reed Dillon and Associates, says he wanted to create a look that was formal but still comfortable. He notes that the Wendts offered a lot of freedom to his design work, making the project easier. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really very symmetrical,â&#x20AC;? Dillon says. We both know that symmetry typically gives a formal feel to the outdoor space around it, but Dillon has managed to keep it comfortable and welcoming. Part of the feel he attributes to the round shape of the patio and to the circles that intertwine it. The water feature was Dillonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s idea and is now Amyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s favorite part of the landscape. Dillon used a naturally occurring rock basin found in New Mexico. Water gurgles over the sides of the rock basin, drowning out the noise of the outside world. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I love the sound, the peacefulness of it. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been known to fall asleep out here,â&#x20AC;? Amy says. The basin is also easier to take care of than a typical landscape pond. Moss rock, with colors that complement both the rock basin and the flagstone, surrounds the water feature. The fireplace is hand-constructed of another similar and also complementary stone. The retaining wall behind the area is native Kansas limestone. Dillonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plant choices are also top notch, with a variety of Japanese maple called Full Moon to soften the center of one of the circles.

Q:

Is it true that psychedelic posters from 1960s concerts now sell for hundreds of dollars? I was a music fan back then, and went to Jimi Hendrix, Beach Boys, Creedence Clearwater Revival and Grateful Dead concerts, but I must have thrown away the posters I â&#x20AC;&#x153;liberatedâ&#x20AC;? from telephone poles.

A: Richard Gwin/Journal-World Photos

AMY WENDT, LEFT, landscaper Reed Dillon and Alexandra Wendt converse in the Wendtsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; backyard outdoor entertainment area off Fall Creek Road. BELOW are closeup shots of the property. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In the fall, it turns a brilliant orange,â&#x20AC;? he says. The tree will also stay in scale with the rest of the landscape â&#x20AC;&#x201D; it will only be about 15 feet tall at maturity.â&#x20AC;? Azaleas, rhododendrons and hydrangeas fill much of the surrounding landscape. Dillon and Wendt note how important the site can be with these plants, but the Wendtsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; yard provides a favorable environment. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I like to use the Rosa Girard variety of azalea,â&#x20AC;? Dillon says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think it is more reliable than some of the others.â&#x20AC;? Easier-to-grow but not widely planted sweetspire is tucked in with the more finicky plants, and a mixture of annuals and perennials provide color. One of my favorite trees, paperbark maple, finds a home in the protected corner near the retaining wall. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This has really become a gathering place,â&#x20AC;? Amy adds. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In the fall and spring, the kids want to come out here, and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re teenagers. We just really enjoy it.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D;Jennifer Smith is the Horticulture Extension Agent for K-State Research and Extension in Douglas County.

There have been a few museum exhibits of 1960s and early-â&#x20AC;&#x2122;70s psychedelic posters that show that the style was a new art form that influenced the art that followed. Many of the posters included specially designed type styles that had strangely shaped letters of different sizes made to fill the space around the other designs. Some were done with fluorescent paint so that they glowed under a blacklight. The posters are scarce today because most eventually were discarded. Search your motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attic. You may find some of your posters, and even in poor condition they sell for hundreds of dollars or more.

Shakespeare title

Add behavioral management to medication Those kids should call no less than once a month and preferably more. It’s pretty bad when parents nurture and guide their children until they can make a life of their own and then they are pretty much forgotten. A phone call means the world to us parents. — Concerned in Indiana

Dear Annie: For the past two years, my 4-year-old granddaughter has been given medication to “help her enter REM sleep” at night, and the dosage was recently increased. She seems drugged and impossible to wake up. This drug worries me, and I also have no clue what the long-term effects might be. I mentioned my concerns to my son and daughter-in-law and suggested trying more natural remedies, such as no TV or chocolate or sugary foods at night and perhaps putting her to bed around 7:00 instead of 10:00, but they ignored me. It is so hard to see a young child taking so much medication at such a young age. When she stays overnight at my house, she is on a calmer routine with regular mealtimes, and she naps and eats and sleeps without any fuss. In fact, she is a joy. Do you have any suggestions on how I can be a positive influence in her life? — Worried Grandma

Dear Indiana: If we controlled the world, all adult children would call their lovanniesmailbox@comcast.net ing, devoted parents daily and visit once a week. UnfortuMost pediatricians who rec- nately, we cannot make that ommend medication do so in happen. Parents whose chilconjunction with behavioral management techniques — such as winding down before bedtime, no sugar or caffeine, etc. Although you are an expert on those techniques, it is not a good idea to stop any regular medications without first checking with the doctor. But if your granddaughter doesn’t need to take her sleep medication every night, the best thing you can do is ask if she can sleep at your home as often as possible.

Dear Grandma: Prescribing sleep medication for toddlers is, unfortunately, not uncommon these days, although we are concerned that this pediatrician has kept your granddaughter on heavy drugs for such an extended period.

Dear Annie: I read the letter from “Feeling Dejected,” whose three sons live far away and only call a few times a year. Among other things, you said he may need to be less focused on his children. That was a terrible response.

Not unlike Charlie Brown’s attempts to fly a kite or kick a football with Lucy’s help, every summer I return to a new season of “Breaking Bad” (9 p.m., AMC) and wonder, just what do other critics and Emmy voters see in this show that I can’t? In the season four opener there is significant blood spilling, a pathetic scene involving a bedpan, and a lot of unrelieved tension, pregnant pauses and awkward silence. Teacher-turned-meth-cookerdrug dealer big shot Walter (Bryan Cranston) seems more laconic than ever and doesn’t say a whole lot in the opening hour. And understanding much of what he does say requires a degree in advanced chemistry. Superior dramas (say, “The Sopranos” or “Mad Men”) and even middling ones (think “Rescue Me”) leaven moments of tragedy with dark comedy, much of it involving a tragic or doomed male interacting with a sensible wife, girlfriend or other woman. Tonight’s season opener has about three minutes of action involving females. And they’re hardly respites from the gloom. Now some folks may say that “Bad” is a profound statement about America’s state of medical care, the scandal of Big Pharma or the war on drugs. Call me old-fashioned, but the duty of any series is to be entertaining. Or at least bearable. I frequently feel bludgeoned by “Breaking Bad” and more than occasionally bored. If that makes me a bad critic or a shallow person, so be it. ● Rufus Sewell stars in the new “Masterpiece Mystery!” (8 p.m., Sunday, PBS, part one of three) offering, “Zen.” The title has nothing to do with Buddhism or Eastern thought. Zen is the nickname of Detective Aurelio Zen (Sewell) of Rome. He’s an honest cop in a system beset with corruption. He’s a handsome guy who lives with his mother, catches the attention of a fetching colleague and finds himself pressured to free an apparently guilty massmurderer to prevent political embarrassment to higher-ups. And, by the way, a vicious killer is out to get him. Too often “Zen” seems like just another British police procedural, complete with London, Cockney and Yorkshire accents. The fact that it’s set in front of gorgeous scenery in Rome and Venice is pleasantly distracting, but not without confusion.

Murdoch in ad tells U.K.: ‘We are sorry’ By Jill Lawless

NEWSPAPERS ARE OPENED TO SHOW THE ADVERTISEMENT APOLOGY for News International, photographed Saturday at a news vendor in central London. News Corporation chairman Rupert Murdoch signed the company advert entitled “We are sorry,” which appeared in British national newspapers Saturday.

Associated Press Writer

LONDON — “We are sorry” the full-page ad began Saturday, as Rupert Murdoch tried to halt a phone-hacking scandal that has claimed two of his top executives with a gesture of atonement and promises to right the wrongs committed by his now-shuttered tabloid, News of the World. Prime Minister David Cameron’s Conservative-led government and the London police, meanwhile, faced increasing questions over their close relationship with Murdoch’s media empire. Cameron was feeling the heat Saturday after government records showed that Murdoch executives have held 26 meetings with him in since he was elected in May 2010 and were invited to his country retreat. Senior police officers also had close ties to Murdoch executives, even hiring one as a consultant who has since been arrested in the phone hacking and police bribery scandal rocking Murdoch’s News Corp. Murdoch is struggling to contain the crisis, which has already forced him to shut down the 168-year-old News of the World, scuttled his bid for lucrative TV broadcaster BSkyB, knocked billions off the value of News Corp. and claimed the jobs of two key aides: Rebekah Brooks, CEO of his British unit News International, and Wall Street Journal publisher Les Hinton. On Saturday, News Corp. ran an ad in seven British national newspapers with the headline “We are sorry.” Signed by Murdoch, it apologized “for the serious wrongdoing that occurred.” “We are deeply sorry for the hurt suffered by the individuals affected. We regret not acting faster to sort things out,” it said. A front-page headline in another Murdoch paper, The Times, called it a “Day of atonement.”

Murdoch was running a second ad in Sunday papers headed “putting right what’s gone wrong,” in which he promised the company would cooperate with the police inquiry and compensate hacking victims. The public displays of contrition came after News Corp. last week hired PR firm Edelman Communications, whose clients include Starbucks and Burger King, to help with public relations and lobbying. The hiring coincided with an abrupt change in tone — as recently as Thursday Murdoch was quoted by the Wall Street Journal as saying the company had handled the crisis “extremely well in every way possible” and complaining he was “getting annoyed” at all the negative headlines. Cameron has appointed a judge to conduct a sweeping inquiry into criminal activity at the News of the World and in the British media as he tries to distance the government from the scandal. But Rupert Murdoch’s son James, Brooks and ex-News of the World editor Andy Coulson were all guests at the prime minister’s country house, Chequers. Coulson’s stay in March

came only two months after he resigned as Cameron’s communications chief amid the spiraling scandal — an invitation that critics said showed poor judgment on Cameron’s part and revealed the cozy relationship between political leaders and Murdoch’s powerful media empire. Coulson is one of nine people arrested and questioned by police over what they knew about phone hacking at the News of the World. No one has yet been charged. Foreign Secretary William Hague defended the government Saturday, saying “it’s not surprising that in a democratic country there is some contact between leaders” and media chiefs. “I’m not embarrassed by it in any way, but there is something wrong here in this country and it must be put right,” Hague told the BBC. “It’s been acknowledged by the prime minister and I think that’s the right attitude to take.” Hague said Cameron had invited Coulson to Chequers “to thank him for his work, he’s worked for him for several years, that is a normal, human thing to do.” Cameron said last week that the relationship between

politicians, the media and the police in Britain had grown too close and must be changed. Murdoch began his apologies Friday as he met with the family of murdered schoolgirl Milly Dowler, whose phone was hacked by the News of the World in 2002. The revelation that journalists had accessed her phone in search of scoops while police were looking for the missing 13-year-old fueled an explosion of interest in the long-simmering scandal. The 80-year-old mogul said “as founder of the company I was appalled to find out what had happened and I apologized.” The phones of celebrities, royal aides, politicians and top athletes are also alleged to have been hacked, and police are investigating whether victims of London’s 2005 terrorist bombings and the families of dead British soldiers were among the tabloid’s targets. The scandal claimed its first casualty among Murdoch’s U.S. executives Friday when Hinton announced he was stepping down immediately as publisher of the Wall Street Journal and chief executive of Dow Jones & Co.

L.A. avoids feared ‘Carmageddon’ traffic jam LOS ANGELES (AP) — Southern Californians appeared Saturday to be willing to make the ultimate sacrifice to avoid the dreaded “Carmageddon” — leaving their cars in the garage. Unusually light traff ic flowed freely through the nation’s second-largest city despite fears of epic traffic jams spawned by the 53-hour shutdown of a 10-mile stretch of one of the region’s most critical freeways. Authorities closed the segment of Interstate 405 on the western side of the metropolis to allow partial demolition of a bridge, warning motorists to stay off the roads or plan alternate routes. Officials were optimistic that the public far and wide had gotten the message, though there was some concern that the lack of gridlock would make the public complacent and that drivers would get behind the wheel before the freeway’s scheduled reopening early Monday. “We hope they still listen to what we’re saying and not go out and try to drive through this area, because it is going to be congested if people do that,” said Mike Miles, a district director of the California Department of Transportation, known as Caltrans. Citizens clearly embraced

INTERSTATE 405 IS COMPLETELY FREE OF TRAFFIC, seen looking southbound from the Skirball Drive bridge, in preparation for the demolition of the Mulholland Drive bridge, just after midnight early Saturday morning. the warnings, leaving neighborhood streets clear near the closure. “It’s been one of the most quiet Saturdays I’ve seen in forever,” said Steven Ramada, who had expected to hear lots of cars honking in front of his Sherman Oaks home but instead only heard news helicopters. “Everyone’s calling this Carmageddon weekend, but it feels like copter-geddon over where we live,” he said. Not everyone was cooperating, though. California Highway Patrol

Officer Charmaine Fajardo said a 74-year-old man was arrested for jogging on the closed freeway after police told him he couldn’t do so, and one or more bicyclists also were intercepted on the route. Fajardo said officers now have orders to arrest anyone trying to enter the shuttered freeway. Additionally, a suspected drunken driver was arrested after going around barricades to enter the freeway, Fajardo said. Progress on demolition of the half-century-old Mulhol-

land Bridge was said to be good. Powerful machines with long booms hammered away at the south side of the span, which is being removed to allow the interstate to be widened. The plan is to leave the north-side lanes standing until the south side is rebuilt. Gail Standish, 47, peddled from Beverly Hills with her bicycling club to a 405 overlook a quarter-mile from the closed span. “Everybody’s calling this weekend Carmageddon, but seeing the freeway empty it feels more post-apocalyptic,” Standish said. Authorities looking at the potential impacts of the $1 billion interstate project spent months giving the public dire warnings. The event got its name when Los Angeles County Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky told an early June press conference that “this doesn’t need to be a Carmageddon” if people avoided driving. Although no major delays related to the closure had occurred by midafternoon, a major test of was likely in the evening when Major League Soccer’s Los Angeles Galaxy, featuring David Beckam, is scheduled to play Spanish heavyweight Real Madrid at Memorial Coliseum south of downtown.

Troops march in San Diego’s gay pride parade By Julie Watson Associated Press Writer

S A N D I E G O — About 200 active-duty troops and veterans wearing T-shirts advertising their branch of service marched Saturday in San Diego’s gay pride parade with American flags and rainbow banners, marking what is believed to be the first time a military contingent has participated in such an event in the U.S. Many of the active-duty troops said they were moved to come out because it is time to end the military’s ban on openly gay troops. The march comes a day after a federal appeals court rein-

stated “don’t ask, don’t tell” but with a caveat that prevents the government from investigating or penalizing anyone who is openly gay. National Guard member Nichole Herrera, 31, said she didn’t think twice about marching, even though the policy is back on the books. She said she was “choked up” several times as she walked down a main thoroughfare in San Diego, a major Navy port. “This is one of the proudest days in my life. It’s time for it (the policy) to be gone,” Herrera said. “I’m a soldier no matter what, regardless of my sexual orientation.” The crowd roared as the group waving military flags

and holding placards identifying their military branch walked past the thousands. Every branch of service was represented Saturday, including the Coast Guard. Marines and sailors ran out carrying their branch’s flags over their heads. One Marine stopped to pose with two towering bikini-clad blondes in stiletto-heeled boots. Onlookers stepped into the parade route to salute them. One man in a rainbow colored shirt waved his feather boa and yelled “Hooah!” the military battle cry. The national Servicemembers Legal Defense Network — representing gay and lesbian active-duty military personnel

— informed organizer Sean Sala that they are warning members that it is still a risk to come out as long as “don’t ask, don’t tell” is on the books. Sala, a former Navy operations specialist, said it’s time for the gay and lesbian community to stop hiding in fear. “This is not in any way a violation of military policy, and it’s time for the country to move on — plain and simple,” he said. Rolling slowly behind the 200 service members was a green half-ton military truck with the banner “Taking pride in our LGBT service men and women.” Speakers on the truck blasted out “Taps” and military fight songs.

Because of a production error, an incorrect crossword puzzle was published in Saturday’s edition of the Journal-World. This is the correct version.

Gulf oil spill cleanup turns up trove of Native American relics By Cain Burdeau Associated Press Writer

CAMINADA HEADLAND , L A . — Cleanup after the BP oil spill has turned up dozens of sites where archaeologists are finding human and animal bones, pottery and primitive weapons left behind by prehistoric Indian settlements — a trove of new clues about the Gulf Coast’s mound dwellers more than 1,300 years ago. But they also fear the remains could be damaged by oil or lost to erosion before they can be fully studied. So far, teams of archaeologists hired by the oil giant have visited more than 100 sites and sent back a growing list of finds to labs for radiocarbon dating and other tests, though extensive excavations haven’t been done. Scholars have also accompanied cleanup crews to make sure they don’t unwittingly throw away relics. The disaster that began when the Deepwater Horizon exploded in April of 2010 has highlighted the urgent need to protect the sites, but a government scientist says neither their discovery — nor the money to study them — would have come as quickly without the spill. “We’re f illing in gaps. There is some pioneering archaeological work going on as a result of the oil spill,” said Larry Murphy, lead archeologist for a council of government agencies and trustees overseeing the oil cleanup. He said uncovering the sites, many of them prehis-

toric, represents “a great leap in cumulative knowledge” about Native Americans in coastal Louisiana, who have been less studied than their counterparts in other regions. Still, the oil represents an added threat to an area that already was under siege from land loss and rising sea levels. Oil has contaminated some artifacts and can interfere with radiocarbon dating, a primary technique for determining the age of an object. Many shores are still scattered with tar balls. Louisiana’s state archaeologist, Charles McGimsey, said the extent of the oil damage to artifacts isn’t known, but he doesn’t expect it to be disastrous. The Associated Press was given a rare glimpse of several sites in June during a guided tour of the Caminada Headland by land warden and amateur archaeologist Forrest Travirca III. Prehistoric artifacts had been found and recorded on the headland before the spill, but not to the extent now being done. Travirca began finding more of them while keeping watch for BP’s black oil last summer on a remote stretch of beach that looks onto the silhouettes of oil rigs and platforms. The headland was one of the hardest-hit spots. “I was walking on marine shell, rangia clam shell, walking out on a point I know, when I looked down, found a pot sherd, and then I started f inding more and more,” Travirca recalled.
