a surprise visit to about a dozen Lawrence restaurants each week. They find everything from clean kitchens to a rare mice infestation, according to the reports for 266 Lawrence restaurants inspected in the first six months of 2012. Kansas Department of Agriculture Inspection Supervisor Nicole Hamm sat down with the Journal-World to explain the inspection process and help put the numbers in perspective.

FOR THE PAST THREE YEARS, a family of redtailed hawks has taken up residence and built a nest on top of a light pole on the northwest corner of Memorial Stadium on the Kansas University campus. The hawks may scare some, but KU officials hope they will be useful for killing squirrels that have become a nuisance to nearby Dyche Hall.

Birds residing in stadium popular with KU community By Adam Strunk astrunk@ljworld.com

A family has moved to the Kansas University campus, and their neighbors love them, even if they do eat squirrels for dinner. For the last three years, a family of red-tailed hawks has occupied a nest on a light pole at the northwest corner of Memorial Stadium. The

hawks have become a curiosity for students and a welcome exterminator for a long-time campus pest. “We love them,” said Mark Robbins, collection manager of birds for the KU Biodiversity Institute. “It’s helping because the squirrels are penetrating Dyche Hall. We have squirrels in here all the time, and we are hoping the redtails will pick them off.”

Robbins said the hawk family, which consists of a breeding pair and two or three juveniles, can go through three or four squirrels or other rodents a week. KU sophomore Sara Hettenbach witnessed the hawks’ hunting skills recently while walking down Jayhawk Boulevard. Please see HAWKS, page 2A

TOPEKA — Will Aug. 7 be the last stand for moderate Republicans in Kansas? If Gov. Sam Brownback, a conservative, has anything to say about it, it might. “It’s pretty obvious that Gov. Brownback and the conservatives are putting on a major effort to absolutely gain control,” said Mark Peterson, political science professor at Washburn University. Of moderate Re- Brownback publicans, Peterson said, “They’re in a constant state of erosion, and it’s clear that conservative values are a very big thing right now.” Conservatives already rule the House and the executive branch. The last remaining toehold for moderates is the Kansas Senate. Republicans hold a 32-8 margin over Democrats in the Senate, and of those 32 Republicans, conservatives hold a slight edge. But moderate Republicans and Democrats have been able to team up to eke out majorities on several key issues. If there’s a swing of two or three seats, conservatives would run the Senate, too, so a few hundred votes in a handful of key races could be the deciding factor Aug. 7, the day of the Republican Party primary. Across the state, incumbent moderates are being taken on by conservatives in the GOP primary. Brownback entered the fray, saying in a prepared statement: “Because of the alliance in the state Senate between Democrats and some Republicans that join together to promote a Democrat agenda, the primary election has effectively become the general. Therefore, I am going to be involved in a limited number of primaries.” Brownback’s camp refused to provide a list of which candidates he was endorsing, but statements Please see MODERATES, page 2A

looking for anything from cooks not wearing gloves, to food stored improperly, to cockroaches scurrying about. The goal isn’t to catch restaurants red-handed, but to promote food safety, Hamm said. Many issues found at restaurants come down to simple training and education. “It’s a partnership,” said Hamm, stressing that the inspectors work with restaurants on food safety guidelines.

Critical violations During inspections, inspectors look for what’s known as critical violations, which are violations that could lead to a foodborne illness: everything from food being kept at improper temperatures to improper storage of chemicals. Inspectors use the 2005 Kansas Food Code, a 200page manual modeled after federal law. In the first half of 2012, inspectors visited 266 restaurants in Lawrence, finding 651 critical violations. Most of those violations can be fixed on site, Hamm said, and don’t result in additional action. But if a visit results in five or more critical violations, inspectors issue a “non-compliance notice,” which means they’ll be back in less than two weeks for another inspection. In the first six months of 2012, inspectors issued 44 non-compliance notices to Lawrence restaurants. Restaurants have a few more chances to clean up before any fines are levied, and it takes multiple non-compliance notices before the state seeks a license revocation. “We really, really try not to do that,” Hamm said. While several Lawrence restaurants racked up dozens of violations

from some of the candidates and appearances by Brownback have revealed some of his picks. For example, Tom Arpke, a conservative from Salina, got Brownback’s endorsement against Sen. Pete Brungardt, also from Salina. Brownback has also endorsed Rep. Jim Denning for Senate District 8, who faces incumbent Sen. Tim Owens, and Rep. Greg Smith who is running for the state Senate District 21 in a contested primary. Both of those districts are in Johnson County. Brownback’s allies, the Kansas Chamber of Commerce and Americans for Prosperity, have also targeted moderate Republicans for defeat, such as Senate President Steve Morris, of Hugoton, Jean Schodorf, of Wichita, Vicki Schmidt, of Topeka, and Carolyn McGinn, of Sedgwick. One of the key stated fears of moderates is that if conservatives control both the House and Senate, then Brownback will be able to ram through public school changes that were shelved during the last legislative session. Brownback’s proposal would have eliminated state limits on local property tax increases for education and replaced a system that gives districts with large populations of at-risk students more money. But critics said removing property tax limits would have widened funding disparities between rich and poor school districts, and that replacing the at-risk weighting didn’t take into account how student populations change.

# 42 restaurants had not received any critical violations since 2010. # 11 Lawrence restaurants recorded 10 or more violations in 2012. # 44 restaurants received a non-compliance notice from inspectors in 2012.

How we conducted our investigation: Using the Kansas Department of Agriculture’s online restaurant inspection website, we examined all 266 Lawrence restaurants inspected between Jan. 1 and June 30 of this year. For restaurants that had received a “non-compliance notice” for a high number of violations, we checked inspection reports back to the beginning of 2010. All the information has been added to a searchable database, available at LJWorld.com, which includes links to all the inspection reports. The database will be updated monthly.

publicans also find the tax cuts that Brownback signed into law contrary to good governance. Brownback said the cuts will spur the economy and create jobs, but critics say the cuts will benefit mostly the wealthy while robbing the state treasury of needed funds for schools and social services. “Kansas education cannot survive with the tax cuts that were passed and still manage to produce the kind of results that Kansans expect from their education system,” said Rochelle Chronister, a Republican who has been involved in state government and politics for decades. Chronister is the spokeswoman for a group of 55 former legislators — all Republicans — called Traditional Republicans for Common Sense. The group has been highly critical of Brownback. Chronister said she hopes that moderate Republicans survive the primary. So why don’t moderate Republicans join the Democratic Party if they feel under attack in their own party? Chronister said that while some Kansas Democrats seem sensible — she pointed out Sen. Laura Kelly, D-Topeka — the national Democratic Party is too liberal for many moderate Republicans. Peterson, the Washburn political science professor, said the dominance of the GOP in Kansas is too much of a climb to entice moderate Republicans, outside of a few notable exceptions, to join the Democratic Party. He said he has spoken with several moderate Republicans who tell him “there isn’t a snowball’s chance in hell of affecting policy in this state if you are not a member of the Republican Party.” — Statehouse reporter Scott Rothschild can be reached at 785-423-0668.

on grease traps, as well as 23 dead roaches along the wall. The restaurant was not closed but issued a non-compliance notice. Since 2010, Esquina had racked up 33 critical violations during inspections, including three non-compliance notices in 2011. Robert Krause, Esquina’s owner, said that they were “dumbfounded” by the discovery of roaches. “We’ve never, ever seen a roach in our restaurant,” Krause said, explaining that the roaches were found in the basement. Krause also pointed out that they were able to fix the issue in less than an hour. Krause chalked up the roach problem to the old buildings downtown, which makes pest control more of a challenge. “We spend a ton of money on pest control,” Krause said.

Most violations For the 44 Lawrence restaurants that received a non-compliance notice in 2012, the Journal-World examined reports for those restaurants dating back to 2010. A total of 13 restaurants had been cited for 20 or more violations during that time. Here’s how the four restaurants with the most violations during that time responded to our findings: # El Mezcal, 1520 Wakarusa Drive: 76 # El Mezcal, 1819 W. 23rd St.: 65 The Journal-World was unable to reach a manager or owner from El Mezcal to comment on their violations. # Jade Garden, 1410 Ka-

Subarna Bhattachan, co-owner of Zen Zero, said his restaurant “takes the health regulations seriously,” and sometimes violations are a result of new employees not following regulations, despite training. “We go over and over them,” Bhattachan said. And what time of year inspectors visit restaurants can also play a role in the number of violations, he said. For instance, on extremely warm days it can be more of a challenge to keep refrigeration at proper temperatures. Bhattachan said his restaurant has taken measures, such as buying new equipment and performing extra cleaning on holidays, to clear up any previous problems during inspections. Zen Zero was also ordered to close its doors for 10 days in January 2011 stemming from violations but settled with the Department of Agriculture to close for five days, from Jan. 6 to Jan. 11. “We’ve had some issues in the past, but we’ve worked to rectify them,” he said.

‘Just a snapshot’ Hamm cautioned that what an inspector finds on one particular day may not necessarily be indicative of the cleanliness of a restaurant. “They’re just a snapshot in time,” Hamm said. “We really want to make sure they know what to do the other 364 days a year.” Hamm advised diners to keep their eyes open when visiting restaurants.

“I saw something fly down, and it’s this hawk, and he picks up this squirrel,” she said. After yelling an expletive not printable in a family newspaper, she watched the hawk fly to the top of a light pole to eat its prize. “I knew that campus has been having some legitimate squirrel problems, so, no, I wasn’t freaked out by it,” Hettenbach said. “I just thought it was cool.” But not everyone is as OK with the hawks’ grizzly activities. Robbins said the Biodiversity Institute receives calls all the time

about the hawks, which tend to be “cavalier” and buzz by students’ heads. The juvenile hawks also have a habit of screaming, which Robbins explained was their way of begging their parents for food. He did say that the group’s behavior and tameness were unusual. “They are usually a wary bird,” Robbins said. Red-tailed hawks have a wingspan of about 3 feet and rarely frequent urban and suburban areas, preferring fields and woods. Robbins suggested that the hawks nest by the football field because it is just that: a large, open field. And, according to Brad Nachtigal, associate athletic director, the hawks are welcome to stay as long as they like.

Workshop teaches craft of energy-friendly technology By Chansi Long clong@ljworld.com

Plush mangoes fresh from the tree are delicious until a few days pass, the fruit rots and the flies come. For the Ch’orti’-Maya, an Indigenous group in eastern Guatemala, rotting fruit can mean disease. Flies gorge on the fruit, then flutter about and land on lips, hands and food. And with no functioning sewer system, the flies are carrying some filthy bacteria. Engineers Without Borders would like to improve these conditions by teaching the Ch’orti’-Ma-

ya how to preserve their fruits. Sunflower State Professionals, the local Engineers Without Borders professional chapter, hosted a workshop on how to build a solar dehydrator Saturday. Sunflower State Professionals decided to teach locals how to construct a dehydrator in order to perfect the craft before teaching the skill elsewhere. “These are technologies that we might implement in Guatemala or another developing community, so we wanted to build our experience here before we try to go overseas,” said

Drug case sheds light Show on March robbery

CONTINUED FROM PAGE 3A

By George Diepenbrock gdiepenbrock@ljworld.com

A major federal drug case in which the prosecutors are trying to recover $16.9 million from 35 people, including several Lawrence residents, has also shed some light on charges in a March robbery case in Lawrence. According to a transcript of a June 18 detention hearing in the federal case, Jacob Paul Forbes, 30, of Lawrence, is accused of injuring a woman while she was in a wheelchair on March 23 in East Lawrence. Forbes was charged in April in Douglas County District Court with aggravated robbery after the woman alleged she was injured in her apartment in the 2100 block of Rhode Island Street. An attorney for Forbes disputes the robbery charge. Forbes earlier this month was one of 35 people indicted on drug conspiracy charges, accused of taking part in a major high-grade marijuana and cocaine distribution ring in Johnson and Douglas counties. U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom’s office has alleged that two Lawrence men, Chad Eugene Bauman, 33, and Los Rovell Dahda, 30, “made millions as the leaders of a drug trafficking organization” since 2005. Douglas County prosecutors have released few details about Forbes’ local robbery charge, but, according to the transcript of a hearing in the federal case, Assistant U.S. Attorney Terra Morehead said the Douglas County case centered on a disagreement with a woman with whom he had worked together with to sell seven ounces of marijuana. “He was upset with her because she wasn’t selling

it fast enough,” Morehead said. The prosecutor alleged that Forbes asked the woman to set the remainder of the marijuana and proceeds from what she had already sold outside of her apartment, and when she came outside he forced his way into her apartment and “in essence, beat her up and rob(bed) her.” Prosecutors allege he stole a laptop from her. The woman then made a report about the incident to police. Morehead said police in Kansas City, Mo., on April 20 arrested him on the Douglas County robbery warrant and seized one pound of high-grade marijuana and $11,000 in cash. Morehead made those comments about Forbes’ case during the same hearing when she alleged that a different defendant in the drug case, Samuel Villeareal III, 31, had supplied marijuana to unnamed Kansas University basketball players during the 2010-2011 season. At the federal detention hearing, Forbes’ attorney Patrick J. O’Connor said Forbes did not dispute he went to the woman’s house, that there was a debt involved, or that she called police after the encounter. “He does dispute what she said. He says he absolutely did not assault her,” said O’Connor, adding that Forbes had voluntarily committed himself to outpatient drug treatment and treatment for ADHD and other mental health issues. In Forbes’ Douglas County case, District Judge Kay Huff earlier this week scheduled a preliminary hearing for August.

Officers injured in Wichita police chase WICHITA — A man has been arrested in a police chase that left two Wichita officers injured and their vehicle in flames. The Wichita Eagle reports that the injured officers had been staking out a suspected drug house when a suspicious pickup took off around 1:30 a.m. Saturday. Wichita police Sgt. Bruce Watts says the truck pulled over before speeding backward and ramming the officer’s vehicle. The officers were treated for minor injuries at a hospital and released.

showmanship and agility. A variety of breeds were represented, including mixed breeds. “In 4-H it’s not about breeds, but about their ability to listen to and take commands,” said Mark Flory, K-State Extension 4-H agent, who helped organize the event. “This is the showcase for the work and training they’ve done throughout the year.” There were 12 participants, ages 7 to 18. Flory was pleased with the turnout for the day, which also included a cat and hand pet show (snakes, gerbils, guinea pigs). The event’s success was largely due to the local leaders who have helped 4-H members train their dogs, Flory said. One such leader is John Berg, who participated in the event when he was a boy, showing an Australian shepherd named Scandal. Berg now serves as a 4-H leader. Fewer kids participate now than when Berg was young, he said. But the numbers are growing again. To prepare for the event, Berg and 4-H members meet Wednesdays for an hour to work on obedience and showmanship. Bailey Hiersche, 14, and Dixie, a purebred border collie, are among them. “It’s a good way to train your dog and teach it very good social skills,” Hiersche said.

Other officers took over the pursuit, which ended when the pickup slammed into a tree and the two men inside ran away. Around 8:30 a.m., Sedgwick County Sheriff’s deputies acting on a tip arrested one suspect near the town of Goddard, about 15 miles from Wichita. Authorities continue looking for the second suspect.

Jodi Gentry, president of Sunflower State Professionals. “We want to use technologies that ... people can build on their own.” About 20 people attended the workshop, held at the Douglas County Fairgrounds Community Building, 1930 Harper St. Among them was Pat Owens, whose home garden is filled with peppers and tomatoes. Owens had owned an electric hydrator she once used to preserve tomatoes, but she gave it to her daughter, an avid backpacker. Owens attended the workshop to replace her old dehydrator with an energy-friendly alternative, one she could build herself. The supplies used were basic: plywood that had already been chopped, measured and painted; a mesh screen; screws; and an electric hand drill. Participants paid $50, about what the materials cost, to build one. “This is all based around the cost of the materials,” said Dan Buonadonna, Sunflower State Professionals vice president. The group’s goal was not profit but outreach.

PERRY RESIDENT STEVE STEVENSON PUTS THE FINISHING TOUCHES on a solar dehydrator Saturday at the Douglas County Fairgrounds Community Building, 1930 Harper St. Stevenson was attending a workshop presented by K-State Research and Extension and the local chapter of Engineers Without Borders. The two groups taught how to make solar dehydrators for $50. “Our focus is international, but we are interested in ... giving back to the community,” Gentry said. For Barbara Pressgrove, who attended the workshop, the dehydrator meant that she would be able to preserve tomatoes and maybe eggplant to eat at her leisure. But for the Guatemalan people, the dehydrator could mean the difference between watching food rot with no means to preserve it or drying it and thwarting flies and bacteria while enhancing shelf life. “They have a lot of

fruit that goes to waste,” said Brent Metz, an anthropologist and KU professor who has spent 20 years studying the Mayan people.“There’s no refrigeration; there’s no electricity.” Though Sunflower State Professionals didn’t net any money, getting word out about their social goals was the main reason for the workshop. And the group is not composed only of engineers, Metz said. “We’ve got school teachers, geographers,” Metz said. “All talents are appreciated.”

Here���s a guide to some key questions in the wake of the mass shooting at a Colorado movie theater during a showing of “The Dark Knight Rises.”

Q: A:

Ed Andrieski/AP Photo

FIREFIGHTERS AND POLICE GATHER AFTER AN EXPLOSION could be heard in front the apartment of shooting suspect James Holmes in Aurora, Colo., on Saturday. Federal authorities detonated one small explosive and disarmed another inside Holmes’ apartment, but several other explosive devices remained, said Aurora police Sgt. Cassidee Carlson. Twelve people were killed and dozens were injured in a shooting attack early Friday at a packed movie theater during a showing of the Batman movie, “The Dark Knight Rises.”

Obama to visit Colorado today WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama will travel to Colorado today to visit with families of victims of the movie theater shooting. White House communications director Dan Pfeiffer announced plans for the trip on Saturday night. Aides say the trip will also include meetings with state and local officials. In his weekly radio address, Obama called for prayer and reflection on the shooting rampage in Aurora, Colo., which claimed 12 lives. He urged Americans to embrace the families who lost loved ones in Aurora and to “let them know we will be there for them as a nation.”

The poster showed several figures in various positions playing paintball, some wearing masks. About 8 p.m., police left the apartment building carrying a laptop computer and a hard drive. While authorities continued to refuse to discuss a possible motive for one of the deadliest mass shootings in recent U.S. history, details about Holmes’ background as a student and would-be scientist trickled out Saturday. Holmes had recently withdrawn from a competitive graduate program in neuroscience at the University of Colorado-Denver, where he was one of six students at the school to get National Institutes of Health grant money. He recently took an intense three-part, oral exam that marks the end of the freshman year of the four-year program there, but university officials would not say if he passed, citing privacy concerns. Neighbors and former classmates in California said although Holmes was whip-smart, he was a loner who said little and was easily forgotten — until this week. Holmes was in solitary confinement for his protection at a county detention facility Saturday, held without bond on suspicion of multiple counts of first-degree murder. He was set for an initial hearing on Monday and has been appointed a public defender.

What happened?

On Friday, shortly after midnight Thursday, a gunman wearing a gas mask and black SWAT gear set off two gas canisters and then opened fire inside a crowded theater in the Denver suburb of Aurora, Colo., killing 12 people and wounding nearly 60 others, authorities said. The suspect was arrested near a car behind the theater and identified as 24-year-old James Holmes. Authorities have not released a motive.

Q: Who is the suspect? A: Holmes was studying neuroscience in a Ph.D. program at the University of ColoradoDenver. He enrolled in June 2011 but left a year later, Holmes though it wasn’t immediately clear why. He played soccer at Westview High School in the San Diego area and graduated with honors from the University of California, Riverside, in spring 2010 with a bachelor’s degree in neuroscience. Those who knew Holmes described him as a shy, intelligent man who grew up in San Diego with parents who were active in their well-todo suburban neighborhood.

brought in $207.4 million.

Q: Who was hurt in the theater? A: Many victims treated at hospitals were under 40, including a 4-monthold baby. The oldest reported patient was 45. The youngest victim who died was a 6-year-old girl. Victims were treated for chemical exposure, apparently related to the canisters thrown by the gunman, and gunshot and shrapnel wounds. The U.S. military said two active duty service members — a sailor and an Air Force Reservist — also died in the shooting. Also among the slain were a sports blogger who recently wrote about surviving a shooting in Canada and a man celebrating his 27th birthday and first wedding anniversary.

Q: Who died in the shooting? A: According to the Arapahoe County coroner, the 12 people who died were: Veronica Moser-Sullivan, 6; Alexander J. Boik, 18; Micayla Medek, 23, of Westminster, Colo.; Jessica Ghawi, 24, of Denver; Alexander C. Teves, 24, of Phoenix; Jonathan T. Blunk, 26, of Aurora; Matt McQuinn, 27, of Denver; Alex Sullivan, 27, of Aurora; John Larimer, 27, of Buckley Air Force Base; Jesse Childress, 29, of Thornton, Colo.; Rebecca Ann Wingo, 32, of Aurora; and Gordon W. Cowden, 51, of Aurora. Q: Was there any link between the shooting and the movie? A: It’s unclear. New York City’s police commissioner said he was told the gunman had painted his hair red and called himself the Joker — Batman’s nemesis — but Aurora police would not confirm that. In “The Dark Knight Rises,” a masked villain leads a murderous crew into a packed football stadium and wages an attack involving guns and explosives. But violent attacks on the public by villains are key components of most superhero movies. There are general parallels to the shooting, “The Dark Knight” and the comic book character. Bruce Wayne’s drive to become Batman arose from witnessing the deaths of his parents at the hands of a criminal who shot and killed them after they left a movie. The Batman video game called “Arkham City” takes place in an abandoned movie theater.

Q: Are movie theaters still showing the film? A: Yes, though with increased security.

OPINION

LAWRENCE JOURNAL-WORLD !"LJWorld.com !"Sunday, July 22, 2012

EDITORIALS

Closed process Lawrence school officials need to find a way to give the public more opportunity for input on the district’s budget.

C

lose to half of the property taxes paid by Lawrence residents go to the Lawrence school district. That means local taxpayers should have more than a passing interest in the school district’s budget. Unfortunately, the budget process followed by school district officials isn’t very conducive to meaningful budget input from the public or even members of the board. On Monday, the Lawrence school board is scheduled to receive, discuss and approve for publication the district’s 2012-13 budget — all in one meeting. The board probably has some knowledge of what that budget will include, but according to an agenda memo from the district staff, the actual budget forms are still being compiled and won’t be available — even to board members — before Monday night. At that time, the administration will present budget information to the board, after which the board can discuss the budget and perhaps propose changes. However, they are expected to approve the budget for publication by the end of the meeting. The budget that is published will set the maximum budget authority and property tax levies for the coming year. The public will have an opportunity to comment on the budget at a public hearing Aug. 13, but that will be after the budget is published when there is no opportunity for either the board — which has had one meeting to absorb the budget’s impact — or the public to add any funding. Granted, given the current uncertainty about state funding for K-12 public schools, this probably isn’t the year to add more spending to the budget, but the fact that district administrators expect school board members to review and rubber-stamp the district’s budget in one meeting is troubling. For instance, in some years, members of the board or public might want to fight to restore funding for a program that has been cut from the budget or provide funding for a new program. Even if board members or the public want to work to reduce the budget, why leave that discussion until after the budget has been published? By contrast, both Lawrence and Douglas County administrators allow significant time for city and county commissioners to go over and perhaps hear public comments on their proposed budgets. City and county budget proposals are discussed in open meetings or study sessions and are completed and available to the public at least a week or two before commissioners approve them for publication. Maybe there is something different about school budgeting that justifies the compressed time line that makes it difficult for taxpayers to have input, but it isn’t apparent. This is a big chunk of local tax money, and taxpayers deserve a more transparent budget process.

U.S., NATO must arm Syrian rebels The bomb that decimated the inner circle of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad on Wednesday should also shake up U.S. policy toward Syria. The deaths of Assad’s brother-in-law and confidant, Assef Shawkat, along with other top security officials, marks the beginning of the end for a regime that has slaughtered at least 15,000 people. This is a moment that calls for decisive Western action. Yet, before Wednesday’s bomb, the international community was fixated on an irrelevance — whether to renew the mandate of a U.N. monitoring mission in Syria that expired Friday. The U.N. effort, led by Kofi Annan, lacks any authority to compel Assad to quit murdering civilians or to step down in favor of a broad-based transition government. Meantime, Russia and China have made clear they’ll veto Western efforts to give the mandate teeth by imposing sanctions if Assad stonewalls. Without enforcement authority, the Annan mission is toast. “I’ve been in constant touch with commanders on the ground,” says Syrian journalist-in-exile Eiad Shurbaji, who now does Skype interviews daily from Washington. “As far as the (fighters) are concerned, they have gone beyond Kofi Annan’s diplomacy. The real decisions won’t be made in New York City, but on the ground or in Damascus.” Too true. Shurbaji was a rising young Syrian star, who owned a magazine and publishing house before the revolution; he had even interviewed Assad’s wife, Asma — twice. When the uprising began, and he wrote about the regime’s bru-

The longer the United States hesitates to help the opposition, the more likely the war will devolve into a bloody sectarian conflict that produces an anti-American, possibly Islamist, government.” tal crackdowns on civilians, he was arrested and beaten. He barely escaped alive to neighboring Jordan. His personal story shows why a peaceful rebellion turned violent under government repression. Today, he says, Syrian rebels “feel they can only achieve their aims through battle.” They view the Annan mission as a smokescreen that enables reluctant Western governments to delay any decision about whether to give military aid to the rebels. That decision can no longer be postponed. There are many understandable reasons that the Obama administration has been reluctant to help the rebels militarily. Still enmeshed in Afghanistan, barely out of Iraq, Americans don’t want to get embroiled in another Mideast conflict. The Syrian opposition is splintered and disorganized, and no one knows

who will take over after Assad. U.S. officials hesitate to arm the opposition because of uncertainty about who will receive the weapons. The fighting is attracting foreign jihadis, even members of al-Qaida, and the Muslim Brotherhood is the best-organized external opposition group. Yet diplomacy, blocked by Moscow, has reached a dead end. The longer the United States hesitates to help the opposition, the more likely the war will devolve into a bloody sectarian conflict that produces an anti-American, possibly Islamist, government. The only hope of avoiding that nightmare is by convincing Assad (and the Russians) that he has no chance to defeat the rebels and should retire to Moscow — and by encouraging a swift implosion of the regime. Right now, the opposition is receiving (insufficient) funds for weapons, mainly from Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and other Gulf states. Those who give the funds have the greatest influence over where the money winds up. The United States has a small number of CIA officials in Turkey who are reportedly helping decide who should get the money inside Syria. However, Syrian activists say that presence is much too limited to make a difference. The Damascus explosion creates a ripe opportunity for the West to change direction. A shift in U.S. policy could encourage more Syrian regime insiders to jump ship. I asked journalist Shurbaji what the opposition needed now. He stressed: “Nobody wants American boots on the ground.” But the rebels want concrete U.S. actions, not just speeches, that convince Assad

(and Moscow) that Washington really seeks his ouster. The opposition wants NATO to create, and patrol, no-fly zones inside Syria, along the Turkish border, which Syrian helicopters and tanks could not attack lest they be shot down. If NATO resists taking to the air, there are other options. Prime among them: Ensure that rebel commanders get the weapons they need, especially antitank and antiaircraft missiles. If the United States provides the funds, and intensifies contacts with rebel commanders, the weapons will be distributed more fairly, and reach more secular fighters. As for fears that these weapons will reach the wrong hands, the rebels point out that Syrian tanks and helicopters are aging and that they don’t need sophisticated weapons to shoot them down. “The U.S. refusal to take a lead role,” says Shurbaji, has convinced Assad that Washington doesn’t really want him to leave. If the Americans referred Assad to the International Criminal Court on war crimes charges, that would have a big impact. The longer this war lasts, the worse the likely outcome, including the risk that a desperate Assad will use chemical weapons against his own people. Now is the moment for Washington to shorten the conflict by giving the rebels stronger, concrete, backing. If the administration wants a say in the shape of a post-Assad government, it must catch up quickly with the realities on the ground. — Trudy Rubin is a columnist and editorial board member for the Philadelphia Inquirer.

OLD HOME TOWN

About two dozen residents from the Schwegler, Centennial, and YEARS Indian Hills neighAGO borhoods had met IN 1972 informally this week to air their opinions about the proposed south Lawrence trafficway. Saying that much of the talk from other neighborhood groups had been negative, they spoke up in defense of the project, saying that the trafficway could bring relief to growing traffic safety problems near their homes. — Compiled by Sarah St. John

Texas GOP wages war on thinking Some recent headlines from the alternate universe of modern conservatism: Rush Limbaugh claims the bad guy in the new Batman movie was named Bane to remind voters of Mitt Romney’s controversial tenure at Bain Capital. Michelle Bachmann, citing zero credible evidence, accuses a Muslim-American aide to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton of conspiring with the Muslim Brotherhood. Arizona sheriff Joe Arpaio’s crack investigators announce that President Obama’s long-form birth certificate is a fake. In other words, it’s just an average week down there in Crazy Town. And that lends a certain context to a tidbit brought to national attention last week by Stephen Colbert of Comedy Central’s “The Colbert Report.” Meaning a plank from the 2012 platform of the Republican Party of Texas which, astonishingly enough, reads as follows: “We oppose the teaching of Higher Order Thinking Skills (HOTS) (values clarification), critical thinking skills and similar programs that are simply a relabeling of Outcome-Based Education (OBE) (mastery learning) which focus on behavior modification and have

the purpose of challenging the student’s fixed beliefs and undermining parental authority.” Holy wow. That is, without a doubt, the most frightening sentence this side of a Stephen King novel. The Texas GOP has set itself explicitly against teaching children to be critical thinkers. Never mind the creeping stupidization of this country, the growing dumbification of our children, our mounting rejection of, even contempt for, objective fact. Never mind educators who lament the inability of American children

to think, to weigh conflicting paradigms, analyze competing arguments, to reason, ruminate, question and reach a thoughtful conclusion. Never mind that this promises the loss of our ability to compete in an ever more complex and technology-driven world. Never mind. The Texas branch of one of our two major political parties opposes teaching critical thinking skills or anything that might challenge a child’s “fixed beliefs.” So presumably, if a child is of the “fixed belief” that Jesus was the first president of the United States or that 2+2 = apple trees or that Florida is an island in an ocean on the moon, educators ought not correct the little genius lest she (gasp!) change her “fixed belief,” thereby undermining mom and dad. That’s just … just … Holy wow. For what it’s worth, the Texas GOP says that language was not supposed to be in the platform. Spokesman Chris Elam says its inclusion “was an oversight on the subcommittee’s part.” If that explanation leaves you cold, join the club. That such an asinine position was even under consideration is hardly comforting. And the fact that something so neon

stupid escaped notice of both the subcommittee and the full platform committee suggests the Texas GOP could use a little critical thinking instruction itself. Remember when Republicans were grown-ups? Agree with them or not, you never thought of Bob Dole, George H.W. Bush, Gerald Ford, even Richard Nixon as less than serious, substantive adults, susceptible like all serious, substantive adults, to logic and reason. The party has since devolved. A toxic stew of faithbased politics, biased “news,” and echo chamber punditry has reduced it to an antiscience, anti-reason, antiintellect caricature of itself. Thoughtful conservatives — thoughtful Americans — ought to be alarmed. How can you have a healthy democracy when a major party not only tolerates lunacy, but elevates it to positions of power? In what sane nation does someone like Rush Limbaugh have a mass audience, Michelle Bachmann an elected office, Joe Arpaio a badge? Well, the Texas GOP just came out against critical thinking. That explains a lot. — Leonard Pitts Jr. is a columnist for the Miami Herald.

Isiah Thomas recommended guard to KU By Gary Bedore gbedore@ljworld.com

NBA Hall of Famer Isiah Thomas recommended his former Florida International commit, Milton Doyle, to Kansas University after Thomas was fired as FIU coach in April. Doyle, a 6-foot-4, 185-pound combo guard, hails from Chicago’s Marshall High. Thomas attended St. Joseph High in Westchester, Ill. “I knew coach (Bill) Self when he was at Illinois. Very I always rarely do helped with a couple play- you see a ers there. player in I’ve also had high school a good relationship with that has so members of many skills his coaching in terms staff,” Thomof stuffing as said in an i n t e r v i e w the stat with ESPN sheet.” Chicago. “I felt with M i l t o n ’ s — Isiah Thomas, style ... and on former they’ve had FIU commit e x p e r i e n c e Milton Doyle with Chicago kids before, and they’ve done well by them. I thought it would be a good fit for him. I did for Milton what I always try to do for players from Chicago. “I’ve helped everyone from Chicago. I’ve done that since I got to the NBA,” Thomas added. “He also happened to be from my neighborhood and went to the high school my brother went to.” Doyle averaged 19 points, 7.0 rebounds and 5.0 assists a game his senior year at Marshall. “Very rarely do you see a player in high school that has so many skills in terms of stuffing the stat sheet,” Thomas told ESPN Chicago. “He rebounds the ball well. He can score in a multitude of ways. He can score from the perimeter. He can score off the bounce. He can at the foul line, and he can score off rebounds. He’s a guy who will always find a way to leave his mark on the game. “For us at FIU, he would have been our first true impact player. He would have been to FIU what Johnny Dawkins was to Coach K (Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski). He would have put us on the map.”

ADAM SCOTT PLAYS A SHOT ONTO THE 18TH GREEN at Royal Lytham & St. Annes golf club during the third round of the British Open. Scott took over the lead heading into today’s final round.

Scott leads, but can he handle it? LYTHAM ST. ANNES, ENGLAND (AP) — The ball tumbled over the edge of a pot bunker and appeared to put Adam Scott in the worst spot he had been all day at the British Open. All he saw was opportunity. From the wet sand right of the 17th green, Scott had to clear two more pot bunkers to reach the green, with the flag only five paces from the edge. Scott was thinking about birdie, not trying to save par, so he confidently told caddie Steve Williams, “I can handle this.” The shot came out pure, trickled by the cup and settled a foot away. The more relevant questions are one round away. Can he handle a four-shot lead, knowing this is a year when no lead appears safe? Can he handle a leaderboard with four major champions among the top six names, including Tiger Woods? Can he handle the wind that is expected to finally arrive at Royal Lytham & St. Annes? “I’m just happy to be in this position,” Scott said. “To be honest, I’m really excited about tomorrow.” Scott has never had a better chance to end his long wait for a major — and he owes much of that to his long putter. He stayed in the game early with two key par saves,

Woodland moves up to 43rd J-W Staff and Wire Reports

LYTHAM ST. ANNES, ENGLAND — Moving Day was kind

to former Kansas University golfer Gary Woodland on Saturday at the British Open. Woodland shot his second consecutive round of even par and moved up 25 spots to a tie for 43rd heading into today’s final round. Woodland erased two frontnine bogeys with an eagle on pulled away with three birdies around the turn and was solid at the end Saturday for a 2-under 68 and a four-shot lead over Graeme McDowell and Brandt Snedeker. It’s the fourth time in the last nine majors that a player had a four-shot lead with one round to go. Rory McIlroy at the 2011 Masters is the only player who didn’t win. Scott has been so steady all week that he has put himself in position to become only the fourth Open champion with all rounds in the 60s. “It was all pretty solid stuff, considering the circumstances and how much trouble

the par-5 No. 7, the parred out the back nine. At 73-70-70— 213 (3 over), Woodland — a Topeka native who played at KU from 2004-07 — is three strokes out of the top 25. Additionally, Zach Johnson, who played for new KU men’s golf coach Jamie Bermel at Drake, carded the low round of the day at 66 and is tied with Ernie Els for fifth at 5-under, six back of leader Adam Scott. there is on this golf course,” Scott said. Scott narrowly missed a 20foot birdie putt on the final hole that would have given him a share of the 54-hole Open scoring record. He settled for 11-under 199 and will play in the final group with McDowell, who had a 67 to get into the final group for the second straight time at a major. Snedeker, who went from a one-shot lead to a six-shot deficit in seven holes, birdied two of his last three holes to salvage a 73. Right behind them were three major champions, starting with the guy who has won

14 of them. Woods recovered from a sloppy start and was within three shots of the lead on the front nine until Scott pulled away. Woods missed a short par putt on the 15th and didn’t give himself many good looks at birdie on the back nine for a 70, leaving him five shots behind. Woods has never won a major when trailing going into the last round. Three-time major champion Ernie Els was solid in his round of 68 and was six back, along with former Masters champion Zach Johnson, who had a 66. Even so, the biggest challenge might be the weather. If the forecast holds true — and there’s been no reason to believe that — the greatest defense of links golf could finally arrive with wind projected to gust up to 25 mph. “It will be in Adam’s hands tomorrow if the conditions are as straightforward as they have been the last few days,” McDowell said. “Throw a bit of wind across this course like perhaps they are forecasting, he will have to go and work a lot harder, and he will have to go win it. “He’s going to have to go win it anyway, for sure.” McDowell was seven shots Please see SCOTT, page 8B

Cain powers Kansas City ————

Now-healthy cleanup hitter gives K.C. ‘nice shot in the arm’

KANSAS CITY FIRST BASEMAN ERIC HOSMER, RIGHT, and third baseman Mike Moustakas celebrate following the Royals’ 7-3 victory over the Twins on Saturday in Kansas City, Mo.

KANSAS CITY, MO. (AP) — Lorenzo Cain is showing the Kansas City Royals what they missed the first half of the season. Cain drove in three runs, Alex Gordon had three hits and scored twice, and the Royals beat the Minnesota Twins, 7-3, on Saturday night. Cain delivered run-producing singles in the first and fifth innings and he had an RBI double in the seventh.

Cain’s three RBIs matched a career high, accomplished twice in 2010 when he was with Milwaukee. Cain played in only five games in April because of a torn hip flexor and groin strain. “That’s one of the main reasons we made the Melky Cabrera trade (to San Francisco) because we felt like Cain was ready to contribute,” Royals manager Ned Yost said. “He is showing

now exactly what we were thinking he would be capable of doing if he was healthy all year long. It’s a nice shot in the arm to have him in the lineup. “He is pacing himself when he needs to and is turning it on when he needs to, but he’s really swinging the bat pretty darn good,” Yost added. “Honestly, he’s about 85 percent.” Please see ROYALS, page 3B

College hall enshrines new class SOUTH BEND, IND. (AP) — Former Michigan coach Lloyd Carr says he’s not qualified to offer an opinion on whether a statue of Joe Paterno on the Penn State campus should be taken down in the wake of the Jerry Sandusky scandal. Carr made his comments Saturday night during an interview session with reporters before he was enshrined in the College Football Hall of Fame. Carr coached the Wolverines

for 13 years, had a .753 winning percentage, won five Big Ten championships and captured a national title. Also honored at ceremonies Saturday night were former Ohio State running back and Heisman Trophy winner Eddie George and Deion Sanders, the Florida State defensive back who went on to play in both the World Series and the Super Bowl as one of the most versatile athletes ever.

George said he’d narrowed his choices for colleges down to Penn State and Ohio State and after a trip to an empty stadium in Columbus, Ohio, where he just looked around and felt the cold, he made his decision on the spot. Also enshrined were: Carlos Alvarez, WR, Florida; Chris Bisaillon, WR, Illinois Wesleyan; Doug English, DT, Texas; Bill “Earthquake� Enyard, FB, Oregon St.; Marty Lyons, DT, Ala-

The unfathomable audacity of the family of the late Joe Paterno is beyond offensive. It’s sickening. It’s distasteful. However long it takes for their “experts� to conduct their farcical “review� of the 267page investigation by former FBI director Louis J. Freeh, it won’t change a thing. No matter how much the toadies and sycophants try to twist the facts of the Freeh report into a pretzel or a French cruller, it will never exonerate Paterno from the disgusting truth. Yet even from his grave, the coach has found a way to keep manipulating a self-serving enterprise that allows Paterno to continue perpetrating the already sickening and distasteful cover-up of the worst scandal in the history of American sports that he launched more than 14 years ago. The family essentially promised to keep alive the cover-up when a spokesman said it had commissioned a panel of “experts� to do a “comprehensive review� of the investigation, which criticized Paterno for his role in keeping child predator Jerry Sandusky protected as he went on his horrifying spree of sodomy. “We are dismayed by, and vehemently disagree with, some of the conclusions and assertions and the process by which they were developed by the Freeh Group,� Wick Sollers, the lawyer for the Paterno family, said in a statement. “Mr. Freeh presented his opinions and interpretations as if they were absolute facts. We believe numerous issues in the report, and his commentary, bear further review.� Well, however long it takes to conduct their “review� — five minutes, five months or five years — it won’t be enough time to distort the truth enough to miraculously exonerate Paterno from his part in influencing the most powerful men at the university to let a child molester knowingly prey in their midst for nearly 14 years. They need to stop it. The only decent thing to do at this point is to either politely fall silent with no comment or have the courage and decency to admit the glaring faults of the patriarch of the family. How much more honorable would it be if someone stood in front of a camera and sympathetically admitted that family love created an understandable blind spot to his transgressions? This revisionist nonsense that keeps coming out of the mouths of the family representatives just digs them deeper into a shameless hole from which there is no escape. And now it makes you wonder what else wasn’t true about the mythology of Happy Valley. It makes me uncomfortably wonder if the man who was deified for so long as the best and brightest in college athletics would have been more accurately portrayed as a welldisguised and calculating man who was far more concerned with manipulating the phony institution of Paterno U above all else.

SUPPORTERS WAVING THE BRITISH FLAG ENCOURAGE Bradley Wiggins as he heads toward victory Saturday in the 19th stage of the Tour de France.

Wiggins nearing victory in Tour de France CHARTRES, FRANCE — Bradley Wiggins all but sealed the Tour de France title Saturday, capturing the final time trial with a commanding show of authority. The Team Sky leader obliterated the pack in the 33-mile ride from Bonneval to Chartres and punched the air as he crossed the Stage 19 finish line. He is set to become the first Briton to win cycling’s most prestigious race when the threeweek ride ends today in Paris with a largely ceremonial ride onto the Champs-Elysees. Wiggins sighed and looked skyward as he hoisted the winner’s bouquet. “I have a lot of emotion right now,� he said. “It’s the stuff of dreams to win the final timetrial and seal the Tour.� Wiggins was timed in 1 hour, 4 minutes, 13 seconds, for his second stage win of this Tour and second in a time trial. Countryman and teammate Christopher Froome was second, 1:16 behind. Luis Leon Sanchez of Spain was third, 1:50 back. Overall, Wiggins has a 3:21 lead over Froome, who is second. Italy’s Vincenzo Nibali is third, 6:19 back. The mostly flat course passed fields of corn and wheat into Chartres, known for its towering cathedral with asymmetrical spires. The route presented few challenges other than the breeze. Riders set off one-by-one in the race against the clock in reverse order of the standings, and Wiggins’ dominance was evident from the first time check. He was 12 seconds ahead of Froome after 81⠄2 miles. Wiggins had a formidable lead coming into the stage. His only threat of any kind was from Froome, a successful time-trial rider, and less so from Nibali, who is not quite as strong in this discipline. Despite rumblings about behind-the-scenes competition between them, Froome proved a faithful teammate to the end. “As we saw today, he’s stronger than me,� Froome told French TV. “I’m very happy. The (Sky) goal this year was to win the Tour with Bradley. To be second (for me) is an added plus.� The standings below them were the biggest question mark: Whether young American Tejay Van Garderen could overtake Jurgen Van Den Broeck for fourth — he didn’t — or whether Frenchman Pierre Rolland, a strong climber but not a time-trialer, would stay in the top 10. He did.

PRO FOOTBALL

Saints’ Brees supports Vilma NEW ORLEANS — New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees is stepping into suspended teammate Jonathan Vilma’s fight against the NFL over his season-long suspension. Vilma’s attorneys filed an affidavit Saturday in federal court in New Orleans supporting Vilma’s effort to discard the suspension imposed over his alleged involvement in a program offering bonuses to injure opponents. Brees swears in the document that “I have no knowledge of a pay to injure program existing, and yet to personally see any evidence that would substantiate these allegations.�

AUTO RACING

Buescher takes truck victory JOLIET, ILL. — James Buescher took the lead from Timothy Peters on the last lap, then held off a charge from Brendan Gaughan to win the NASCAR Truck Series race at Chicagoland Speedway on Saturday night. It was Buescher’s third career win, with all three coming this season. Buescher previously won at Kansas and Kentucky. Gaughan finished second after dominating the majority of the race. Peters was third, followed by Matt Crafton and Parker Kligerman. It was the 200th career start in Trucks for Todd Bodine, making him the only driver with at least 200 starts in all three of NASCAR’s national series. Bodine finished 18th.

Hunter-Reay wins pole EDMONTON, ALBERTA — Ryan Hunter-Reay bounced back from a rough opening day at Edmonton by winning the pole in Saturday’s qualifying. But the IndyCar Series points leader will start 11th because he’ll be penalized for an unapproved engine change. The penalty is 10 spots on the starting grid for today’s race. Hunter-Reay has won the last three IndyCar races to move into the points lead. He’s the first American since 2006 to lead the IndyCar standings, and he takes a 34-point lead over Will Power into today’s race.

Stallings leads True South MADISON, MISS. — Scott Stallings took a four-stroke lead on Saturday at the True South Classic after shooting 6 under through the first 10 holes of the third round at Annandale Golf Club. Stallings made four birdies and an eagle before darkness suspended play, and is at 18 under for the tournament. The 27-year-old is trying for his second career PGA Tour victory. He’ll continue his round this morning. Billy Horschel, Heath Slocum and Jason Bohn are tied for second place at 14 under. The tournament has been plagued by heavy rain, with one weather-related delay during each of the first three days.

White Sox deal for Myers DETROIT — Hours before falling out of first place, the Chicago White Sox added a veteran to their young bullpen. The White Sox acquired Houston reliever Brett Myers on Saturday for two minor-league pitchers and a player to be named. The 31-yearold Myers had 19 saves and a 3.52 earned-run average for the Astros this season. Houston receives right-hander Matt Heidenreich and left-hander Blair Walters. Chicago also receives cash considerations from Houston.

KANSAS CITY STARTING PITCHER LUIS MENDOZA, RIGHT, WAITS ON THE MOUND with shortstop Alcides Escobar, second baseman Yuniesky Betancourt and Eric Hosmer, from left, during the seventh inning. Mendoza was lifted, but the Royals went on to win, 7-3, Saturday in Kansas City, Mo.

Royals CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1B

Cain, who batted cleanup, is 13-for-31 since returning July 13. Gordon had his 34th multihit game and is hitting .352 since moving back to the Royals leadoff spot on May 27. Luis Mendoza (4-6) made his sixth quality start in seven appearances to collect the victory, but only his second since May 13. He yielded three runs and seven hits in 6 1/3 innings. “He pitched into the seventh inning, did a great job again, executed his pitches,” Yost said. “He battled a little bit up in the zone, but was always able to make the adjustment.” The Royals scored only one run in three of Mendoza’s previous four starts, but this time they backed him with seven. “I started up in the zone a little bit,” Mendoza said. “I just tried to get some groundballs, get below. My job is to get groundballs. I just want to pitch my game, stay aggressive and try to win games.” Twins rookie left-hander Scott Diamond (8-4) lost for the first time since June 19, spanning five starts. Diamond allowed four runs and 10 hits in six innings. “They made contact and did a good job of putting the ball in play and found holes,” Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said. “I didn’t think he pitched bad at all. They hit a lot of choppers and were making contact.” The Royals led off the first five innings with singles. They also hit into five

double plays, four in the first five innings. Gordon started the first inning with a single and scored on Cain’s two-out single. Mike Moustakas opened the second with a single to center, went

to second on Eric Hosmer’s single and scored on Yuniesky Betancourt’s two-out single. Jeff Francoeur and Betancourt doubled for the first Kansas City run in the eighth. Gordon singled home Betancourt for the other run in the inning. Aaron Crow worked two spotless innings to log his second save. The Twins made it 2-all in the fourth. Ben Revere started with a triple to the right-field corner and scored on Joe Mauer’s groundout. Josh Willingham, who singled, scored the other run of the inning on Chris Parmelee’s fielder’s choice. The Royals took a 4-2 lead in the fifth when they were aided by an error by Parmelee at first base. Cain singled Gordon home with the first run of the inning. When Parmelee failed to handle Moustakas’ hard bouncer, Alcides Escobar scored. The Twins got a run

back in the seventh when Jamey Carroll’s double scored Parmelee. Notes: With the Royals losing 14 of 18 entering Saturday, Yost called a team meeting before the game. “We just talked about a few things,” Yost said. “Team meetings for me are kind of private affairs between 25 guys and the coaching staff. I’ll just leave it at that.” ... The Twins placed 1B Joe Morneau on the paternity list and recalled Parmelee from Triple-A Rochester. ... The Royals optioned LHP Francisley Bueno to Triple-A Omaha. ... Hosmer was dropped to the eighth slot in the Royals’ batting order for the second time this season. Yost has used 11 players in the eighth hole. ... RHP Jeremy Guthrie, who was acquired in a trade Friday with Colorado, will make his first Royals start today. The Twins will start rookie RHP Samuel Deduno.

Sporting K.C. plays Revolution to draw KANSAS CITY, KAN. (AP) — Sporting Kansas City goalkeeper Jimmy Nielsen made four saves for his league-leading ninth shutout of the season in a scoreless draw with the New England Revolution on Saturday night. Sporting (11-6-4) moved one point behind firstplace New York in the Eastern Conference. Nielsen’s shutout moved him one ahead of Vancouver’s Joe Cannon. Matt Reis earned his fourth shutout for New

England (6-9-5), which is just 1-7-2 on the road. Each goalie had to make a spectacular save to preserve the draw. Nielsen punched out Ryan Guy’s header in the 15th minute, and Reis made a diving fingertip save to deflect Jacob Peterson’s header in the 52nd. Reis spent several minutes on the field late in stoppage time after colliding in the air with Sporting forward Kei Kamara, but was able to finish out the match.

Central Division Detroit Chicago Cleveland Kansas City Minnesota

Sunday, July 22, 2012

Tigers 7, White Sox 1 DETROIT — Rick Porcello fell just short of his first complete game. He’ll have to settle for a spot atop the AL Central. Porcello pitched brilliantly into the ninth inGB WCGB L10 Str Home Away ning, and the Detroit Tigers took over first place — — 6-4 W-1 29-16 27-21 in their division Saturday 6 — 4-6 L-1 26-19 25-25 with a 7-1 victory over the 61⁄2 — 8-2 W-4 28-21 22-23 Chicago White Sox. The 161⁄2 10 5-5 W-1 17-27 24-28 Tigers lead the White Sox by a half game. It’s the first time they’ve been in first since they were tied after beating Kansas City GB WCGB L10 Str Home Away on May 1. “On paper, you can say — — 5-5 W-1 27-19 27-20 whatever you want, but if 1 2 ⁄2 — 7-3 L-1 24-24 28-18 you don’t perform on the 71⁄2 5 2-8 L-2 26-22 21-25 field then it means noth101⁄2 8 3-7 L-4 24-24 20-26 ing,” Porcello said. “We 14 111⁄2 4-6 L-3 17-29 24-25 all believed in each other, and we’ve still got a lot of work to do. This isn’t over GB WCGB L10 Str Home Away yet. This is just getting — — 8-2 W-3 30-18 24-22 started.” Detroit was six games 1⁄2 — 7-3 W-4 31-14 22-26 out after a loss to the Chi5 3 5-5 W-2 25-20 24-25 cago Cubs on June 12. 91⁄2 71⁄2 5-5 L-2 26-23 18-26 Brennan Boesch hit a 151⁄2 131⁄2 6-4 L-2 24-21 14-34 three-run homer and Aus201⁄2 181⁄2 1-9 L-5 24-21 10-40 tin Jackson drove in the other four runs for the Tigers. Porcello (7-5) has GB WCGB L10 Str Home Away never thrown a complete — — 7-3 W-2 29-16 24-25 game in the majors. He 21⁄2 11⁄2 4-6 W-3 29-20 22-24 departed Saturday after allowing two hard-hit sin7 6 5-5 W-2 25-21 21-27 gles to start the ninth. 1 1 13 ⁄2 12 ⁄2 6-4 W-4 21-28 19-27 Porcello allowed a run 17 16 4-6 L-3 20-29 15-28 and five hits. He struck out four with no walks, outdueling Chris Sale (11-3) in the Chicago left-hander’s first loss since May 12. “Just made some bad NATIONAL LEAGUE pitches at some bad Atlanta 4-2, times,” Sale said. “A team Washington 0-5 L.A. Dodgers 8, N.Y. Mets 5 like that is going to capitalize.” San Francisco 6, Sale allowed five runs Philadelphia 5, 10 innings and seven hits in seven Pittsburgh 5, Miami 1 innings. He struck out Cincinnati 6, Milwaukee 2 St. Louis 12, Chicago Cubs 0 six and walked four. The Tigers will go for a Arizona 12, Houston 3 Colorado at San Diego, (n) three-game sweep Sunday, sending rookie Jacob Turner (0-1) to face Philip Humber (4-4).

Diamondbacks 12, Astros 3 PHOENIX — Jason Kubel became the seventh player in Diamondbacks’ history to homer three times in a game, driving in six runs as Arizona dominated Houston for the second straight game on Saturday night. Kubel hit a two-run home run in the first inning and a three-run shot in the fourth off starter Dallas Keuchel (1-2). He added a solo homer off reliever Enerio Del Rosario in the sixth. He struck out in his other two at-bats. With the first threehomer game of his career, Kubel leads the NL with 70 RBIs. Wade Miley (11-5) gave up a run and four hits in seven innings, striking out a career-high nine while setting a franchise rookie record for victories. The Astros lost their fifth straight and 18th in 20 games. Kubel, signed as a free agent in the offseason, is one of six players to hit three home runs in a game this season. That includes Josh Hamilton, who hit four. Kubel has 20 home runs, including a twohomer game Thursday in Cincinnati. Willie Bloomquist went 3-for-4 with three RBIs for the Diamondbacks. Aaron Hill singled in the fifth to extend his hitting streak to 12 games. The Diamondbacks, on the opening weekend of a 10-game homestand, have outscored the Astros 25-11 in the first two games of the series. Keuchel, called up from Triple-A Oklahoma City for the start after J.A. Happ was sent to Toronto on Thursday in a 10-player trade, allowed seven runs and seven hits and walked four in 3 1-3 innings. Kubel gave Miley a quick lead in the first. Hill walked with one out, then the Arizona slugger hit Keuchel’s 2-2 pitch just over the fence in left field, a two-run opposite-field shot. The Astros cut it to 2-1 in the fourth. Justin Maxwell led off with a grounds-rule double and J.D. Martinez walked. Miley got Ben Francisco to pop out, then fanned Matt Downs, but Chris Johnson’s single brought Maxwell home. Chris Snyder walked to load the bases before Keuchel grounded out to end the inning.

Indians pitcher Hernandez suspended three weeks CLEVELAND (AP) — Cleveland Indians pitcher Roberto Hernandez was suspended Saturday for three weeks by Major League Baseball for age and identity fraud. Indians general manager Chris Antonetti said Hernandez, formerly known as Fausto Carmona, has received a visa to return to the United States and that he would be eligible to rejoin the team Aug. 11. Hernandez will address the media today at Progressive Field. MLB said in a release that Hernandez will be allowed to participate in a minor league rehabilitation assignment during his suspension. His rehab will include three or four starts. The right-hander will throw for manager Manny Acta and the coaching staff Sunday. “We’re looking forward to having Roberto back in the organization,” Antonetti said. “He has put in a lot of work at our academy in the Dominican. I know he’s eager to get going. He’s very remorseful.” Antonetti said Hernan-

dez has thrown in the bullpen and simulated games while throwing 70 to 75 pitches in each outing. Acta has spoken to Hernandez several times over the last few months. “He was getting antsy,” Acta said. “He never got down on his hope for coming over. I never felt he gave any sign of thinking that (returning to the Indians) wasn’t going to happen.” Hernandez was arrested in the Dominican Republic in January outside the U.S. consulate, where he had gone to renew his visa. It was discovered that Hernandez is 31 years old, three years older than his listed age. His contract was reworked for a lower salary at the Indians’ request, a factor that might have influenced the length of his suspension. Miami Marlins pitcher Juan Carlos Oviedo, aka Leo Nunez, was suspended eight weeks for similar fraud charges. He is eligible to return to the major league on Monday. Hernandez will make $2.5 million as a base salary in 2012.

OLYMPICS

Dave Barry’s Olympic survival guide By Dave Barry McClatchy Newspapers

“The Olympic Games.” Without question, these are the three most exciting words in all of sports, except for “nude Jell-O wrestling.” And that is why, for the next two weeks, millions of Americans will tune in to NBC to watch the greatest athletes from every part of the globe, except those parts of the globe that are located outside of the United States, because NBC’s longstanding Olympic policy is to avoid, at all costs, exposing its viewers to foreign athletes. This year the Olympics are being held in London, which is in a festive mood, having just held a “jubilee” to celebrate the Queen’s 350th birthday. The city has spent $15 billion on preparations for the Olympics, including $5.8 billion for the world’s largest umbrella, the “Jumbo-rella,” which, in the event of rain, will automatically pop up and unfurl to cover the entire greater London metropolitan area, encompassing 2,158,597 hectares (one hectare = 17 liters). Because of unanticipated construction delays, the Jumbo-rella will not be field-tested until 3 a.m. on

The statue is one of 84 fiberglass sculptures of mascots Wenlock or Mandeville painted by various artists and erected across the city for the London Olympic Games. the day of the Olympic opening ceremonies; as a precaution, London authorities are recommending that, during the test, all residents temporarily relocate to “a safe area, such as Wales.” Which brings us to terrorism. Is it a concern? I will not mince words: maybe. London authorities have asked everyone attending the Olympics to be alert for suspicious behavior such as: standing around, frown-

ing, taking photographs, talking on a mobile phone while walking rapidly in a specific direction, etc. If you see an individual doing any of these things, simply place that individual in a standard headlock and yell for a police officer, which in England is called a “Bobby.” Be advised that “Bobby” is only one example of the many words or phrases that the British, because of centuries of heavy drinking, use incor-

rectly. Here are some others, with the American, or correct, version on the left, and the British version on the right: Flashlight = Torch Elevator = Prawn Hello = Blimey Good (or bad) = Aunt Betty’s celery trampoline Torch = Flashlight Eat = Spang the wollynacker Does it ever stop raining here? = Cor blimey? Paul = Ringo

Celebrities like Jolie and Pitt are expected to rub shoulders with diplomats and businessmen in and around the venues of the London Games. globe include Baaba Maal, Wynton Marsalis and the Kronos Quartet. One of the most glamorous bashes in town will be a charity gala dinner at the Victoria & Albert Museum on Wednesday, two days before the Olympic opening ceremony. Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt, Christopher Lee and Bob Geldof are expected to at-

tend the black-tie event, which is organized by the charity Sports for Peace and held in honor of boxing great Muhammad Ali. Others reportedly attending include Michael Douglas, Catherine ZetaJones, and Prince Harry. The organizers did not immediately confirm the reports, but judging from the list of celebs sitting on

Q: Ohhhhh. Seriously: If you look up “Wenlock and Mandeville” on the Internet, you will see these bizarre pale tubular things prancing around London waving brazenly at people, including children, as if to say: “We are gigantic masculine appendages, and we could not be more excited!” Fact: Wenlock and Mandeville have one eye apiece. But aside from the pervert mascots, and the threat of terrorism, and the cost overruns, and of course the weather forecast (fifty days of grey), these Olympics promise to be a lot of fun (or, as the British say, “a right fragrant harmonica”). If you can’t be there in person, don’t worry: I’m going to London, and I’ll be reporting on all the Olympic events, starting with the ceremonial lighting of the big Olympic flashlight. I’ll also be roaming the streets, observing the people of London as they work, play and spang the wollynacker. You might say I’ll be serving as an unofficial “goodwill ambassador” for America, getting to know people from all around the world, and, in the true spirit of the Olympic games, placing them in headlocks.

Sun comes out as torch tour starts

SIGN OF THE TIMES

LONDON (AP) — The athletes and the Olympic torch have arrived in London — and so has the party. For those keener on celebrity-spotting or dancing the night away than medal counting, the British host city has plenty of action to offer during games time. Away from the track and field, Hollywood royalty such as Brangelina and Nicole Kidman will be rubbing shoulders with diplomats and businessmen at the city’s glitziest clubs and grandest historic buildings. Meanwhile, Dizzy Rascal, Snow Patrol and other musicians will keep crowds entertained at outdoor concerts across the capital — though there won’t be cocktails and canapes. The party vibe kicks off Saturday with the sold-out “River of Music” festival, which features six stages along the Thames, each named for a different continent. Musicians from the Americas, for example, are taking over London’s iconic Tower of London, headlined by a gig by the Scissor Sisters. Other performers from across the

Take the subway = Neuter the hedgehog Go to the bathroom = Make a blimey Which brings us to the official London Olympics mascot. It is a hallowed Olympic tradition for the host city to go to great effort and expense to create a unique mascot character that causes everybody who sees it to remark: “Huh?” (Or as the British say: “Blimey?”) In 1996 the seemingly unbreakable world record for Olympic mascot weirdness was set by Atlanta, which produced “Izzy,” an inexplicable, fuzzy, blue, huge-eyeballed creature that looked like the product of an unnatural act involving Jabba the Hutt and a Smurf. But Atlanta’s record was shattered with the introduction of the London 2012 mascots, who are named “Wenlock” and “Mandeville,” and who have been widely criticized in the British press because of what they strongly resemble. Q: What do they strongly resemble? A: Let’s just say they look like something that a man has, but a woman does not have. Q: Fewer than 45 pairs of shoes? A: No, something else.

the charity’s committee — George Clooney, Catherine Deneuve and Hilary Swank, to name a few — there will definitely be no shortage of VIPs. In Soho, London’s buzzing restaurant and nightlife district, luxury watchmaker Omega, the Olympics’ official timekeeper, will be hosting its own A-list soirees in a specially-refurbished townhouse until the end of the games on Aug 12. Kidman is expected at a launch party on July 28, while a space-themed bash on Aug. 2 will feature American astronauts Buzz Aldrin, Gene Cernan and Tom Stafford. A publicist said other guests will include swimmer Michael Phelps and Bollywood star Abhishek Bachchan. Other celebrities will make appearances during the games — but only on video. “Harry Potter” stars Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson, actress Helen Mirren and boxing star Amir Khan are among those who recorded a “goodbye” video that will be played on screens as fans leave the Olympic venues at the end of each sports session.

LONDON (AP) — The Olympic torch has begun its tour of London — and to everyone’s relief, the weather is cooperating. After weeks of unseasonably chilly temperatures and miserable rain, the sun came out Saturday as thousands of people turned out to watch the flame begin its seven-day trip of the Olympic host city. The torch arrived late Friday in the city with a dramatic entrance, abseiled from a helicopter by a Royal Marine to the Tower of London on the shore of the River Thames. After a night locked inside the Jewel House of the 11th century landmark, the torch started a journey through London that took it from a historic ship to a shiny new shopping mall. From the Royal Observatory in Greenwich, the home of Greenwich Mean Time (GMT), the torch was carried to the Cutty Sark, a newly restored 140-year-old ship docked in the Thames. Nadia Comaneci, the legendary Romanian gymnast who won nine Olympic medals in the 1976 and 1980 games, and former basketball player John

Amaechi took the torch to the roof of the North Greenwich Arena, the venue for the gymnastics events and basketball finals. “You know it doesn’t seem like it’s been 36 years ago,” Comaneci, the first female gymnast to be awarded a perfect 10 score in an Olympic gymnastics event, told the BBC. “It’s hard to believe that what I’ve done then people still remember. So I’m very honored to be here.” Phillips Idowu, a champion triple jumper for Team Great Britain, later took the torch to the Westfield mall, Europe’s biggest, next to the Olympic Park. Saturday’s torch relay also included stints from London’s youngest and oldest torchbearers: 12-year-old Chester Chambers, and 101-yearold Fauja Singh. Like most other torchbearers, they were nominated by their communities. The torch, which has already traveled across Britain for more than 60 days, will continue to tour London’s streets until it ends its journey at the Olympic Stadium for the opening ceremony in the capital on July 27.

Officials settle lighting quandary LONDON (AP) — The decision-makers finally have an answer to the question of who will light the Olympic cauldron at Friday’s opening ceremony. Steve Redgrave? Daley Thompson? Kelly Holmes? Roger Bannister? Don’t ask, because they’re not saying. “There is a mutually agreeable solution,” British Olympic Association chief executive Andy Hunt said. “A good solution to the outcome.” Hunt and London organizing committee counterpart Paul Deighton were tasked with choosing the final torchbearer and protecting that person’s identity until the eyes of a billion-plus people are on the Olympic Stadium. Hunt said they were both

involved in the meetings, as well as some others. “It’s a joint decision,” Hunt said. “Discussions have taken place over quite some time.” One of the others involved is Oscar-winning director Danny Boyle. The man overseeing the opening ceremony has clashed with TV producers, but Hunt said there were no tensions over the iconic moment of the games curtain-raiser. “The ceremonies committee, which is made up of Danny Boyle, ... has made recommendations,” Hunt said during a briefing at the Olympic Park. “And we can choose to support, or not to support, the recommendations.” And who might those recommendations be? Hunt isn’t saying.

BRITISH OPEN

.

L AWRENCE J OURNAL -W ORLD

Snedeker hasn’t quit ————

Day 2 leader falters, but ‘I still have a chance’

ing country music star Vince Gill, who told him: “It’s OK. Life goes on.” There were plenty of reasons to think about shedding a few tears Saturday, including a bad break on the sixth hole that forced Snedeker to play a shot backward from the greenside bunker before finally making bogey. He found himself often in some of the 206 bunkers that litter Royal Lytham,

missed short puts and fought his swing the entire round. After shooting 66-64 the first two rounds and not coming close to even sniffing a bogey through his first 40 holes, he made six over the stretch of the next 10 holes. “It’s just kind of what I’ve been doing so well I did so poorly today. That’s why it was frustrating,” Snedeker said. “I didn’t hit the ball very solidly. I didn’t putt the ball very well. Just one of those days where you shake your head and wonder what you’re doing out there, and I hate those.” Snedeker, who began the round with a one-shot lead over Scott, was six shots back and fading fast when he made only his second birdie of the day on the 16th hole. He finished the round off with a 30-footer for birdie on the 18th hole and broke out in a wide smile before cheering fans packed into the giant grandstands surrounding the final green. “I could have easily turned a 3-over round into a 7- or 8-over round, if I wasn’t still fighting, still hanging in there,” Snedeker said. Snedeker, a Tennessean with a Huck Finn kind of face and easygoing personality, was an unlikely leader through the midway point of the Open to begin with. Though he’s a three-time winner on the PGA Tour — including a victory at Torrey Pines earlier this year when he came from seven shots behind in the final round — he hadn’t even made the cut in his three previous tries in the British.

from the same distance on the third hole. And in the middle of his run of birdies — including a 30-foot putt on the eighth — he escaped with par on the 10th hole by making one from 18 feet. “To make a nice putt like that on the first and make par is obviously very settling,” Scott said. “And then to do the same thing on 3, that’s been a hole that I haven’t parred this week. From there on, I was very settled into the round and started hitting fairways and greens.” He played it safe on the back nine, giving himself a few good looks, but mostly making sure he didn’t get into position for big numbers. “That’s what I felt I needed to do,” Scott said. “I didn’t need to take any risks out there.” The only drama left at the end of the round was the size of Scott’s lead and whether Woods could get into the final group for another reunion with Wil-

liams, the caddie he fired last summer in a split that remains acrimonious. McDowell took care of that with a late surge, starting with birdies on the 13th and 14th holes, and a 15-foot birdie putt on the 17th. “I kind of felt the tournament perhaps slipping away from me a little bit and really had to dig deep for some patience,” McDowell said. “From about the 14th tee onwards, it’s probably about as good as I’ve swung the club all week.” Snedeker’s bogey-free streak — the longest to start a major championship since at least 1995 — ended with a three-putt from just short of the fifth green, and it spiraled from there. With his ball a foot away from a 4-foot bunker wall, he played back toward the fairway and hit a superb pitch from 40 yards to escape with bogey on the sixth. After that, nothing went his way until the end of the round.

LYTHAM ST. ANNES, ENGLAND (AP) — The last time

Brandt Snedeker had this kind of a round when it really mattered, he sobbed into a towel after blowing his chance at a green jacket at the Masters. He finished this time with a smile on his face, still in the hunt in the British Open after refusing to let another wayward round get away from him like it did four years ago at Augusta National. Two birdies in the final three holes can do a lot for a guy’s frame of mind. “It’s just kind of one of those things where you’ve got to find out if you have some guts or don’t,” Snedeker said. “I could have packed up and gone home today, but I didn’t.” Snedeker’s 3-over 73 got him a date with Tiger Woods in the next-to-last group, within shouting distance of the lead held by Adam Scott. Not exactly where he pictured himself entering the day after two rounds of playing bogey-free golf at Royal Lytham & St. Annes. But good enough to get a shot at the claret jug should he get off to a fast start in the final round from four shots behind. “I still have a chance,” Snedeker said. “This course is not playing easy. I showed that today. If you don’t keep the ball in play, you’re going to struggle, and I did not do that today. So you never know what might happen.” What happened Saturday might have crushed Snedeker just a few years ago. The fact it didn’t showed a lot about his

He led the Masters early in the final round in 2008 only to balloon to a fat 77 that left him disconsolate outside the media center.

behind as he walked up to the 13th green and found three birdies coming in to get into the last group, just as he was at Olympic Club last month in the U.S. Open, where he was one putt away from forcing a playoff. Snedeker opened this championship by playing 40 holes without a bogey, and then he couldn’t buy a par. He had to blast backward out of a bunker, chunked a pitch shot from the fairway, missed short putts and was reeling. Scott was becoming a forgotten star until he switched to the long putter in February of last year, and it has been the biggest reason for the turnaround — his runner-up at the Masters last year, winning his first World Golf Championship at Firestone, and now on the cusp

TIGER WOODS LINES UP A PUTT on the 15th green Saturday at Royal Lytham & St. Annes during the third round of the British Open.

Woods rallies, still five back LYTHAM LAND (AP)

ST. ANNES, ENG— When Tiger Woods rolled in a 60-foot putt on the sixth hole, it looked as though he was ready to make a charge at the British Open. The fist pump. The big smile. The roar of the gallery, drifting across Royal Lytham & St. Annes. All the signs were there. A couple of hours later, Woods tapped in for par at No. 18. The charge had fizzled. There was still a lot of work to do. The good news for Woods is he didn’t collapse Saturday, even after a poor start, as opposed to his dismal weekend performance at the U.S. Open last month. But he’s never won any of his 14 major championships by rallying in the final round, and he’ll have to make up a daunting five-shot deficit if he’s going to snatch the claret jug from Adam Scott. Woods shot a par-70 that kept him in the game. Just barely. “Well, I turned it around,” Woods said, looking for the bright side. “I got off to an awful start and battled back and got myself right back in the mix again going into tomorrow. I’m right there.” Well, not quite. Woods began the day four strokes behind Brandt Snedeker, the 36hole leader. Now, the deficit between Woods and the new leader is even larger. Plus, there’s two players between Woods and the top spot. Snedeker, who had a miserable day but rallied at the end, and Graeme McDowell, who was solid all the way, are four strokes behind Scott’s 11-under 199 total. Next is Woods at 204. On moving day, he moved the wrong way, raising the very real possibility that the longest major drought of his career — a little over four years since he hobbled to victory at the 2008 U.S. Open — will carry on at this Open. Of course, it could’ve been worse. Woods started

Lahiri records first ace LYTHAM LAND (AP)

ST. ANNES, ENG— Anirban Lahiri had already made history at this year’s British Open before he stepped up to the ninth tee in the third round. With one swing of his 9-iron, he put himself in the record books again. The 25-year-old Indian, making his Open debut, made the first hole in one of the 2012 tournament Saturday when he aced the par-3 No. 9 from 150 yards, the ball landing to the right of the cup and bouncing in. A grinning Lahiri raised both hands in the air and gave a bow. The shot was played in front of his father, making the moment all the more sweet. “It was looking a little right of the hole, but it got a really, really friendly bounce. When it goes in, everybody goes wild. I go wild. It was fantastic,” said

Lahiri, who shot a 70 to remain at par for the tournament. “You’re just looking around. You don’t know how to express yourself, and then you see your dad jumping up out there blowing you kisses. These moments don’t come every day.” It was his third hole in one in tournament play. He was convinced to use the 9-iron after going with a wedge on that hole during the second round and finding the bunker. “It takes the cake,” Lahiri said. “It’s a hallowed event for us. You come out here and you just want to play your best. You want to put up a good performance for yourself, for your country.” It’s a special time for Indian golf. With Bangalore-based Lahiri and mentor Jeev Milkha Singh both making

the cut at Royal Lytham & St. Annes, it is the first time two Indians are playing a weekend at the same major. This comes on the back of Singh’s memorable win at the Scottish Open last week, when he rallied from five shots back on the final day to beat Francesco Molinari in a playoff. The victory lifted him to 87th in the world. The golf scene back home is thriving, with the Professional Golf Tour of India — formed in 2006 — now with 30 tournaments on the calendar. Prize money has soared by around 250 percent in the six years. “In India, cricket is a religion and that takes away from any other sport, but I think golf is probably No. 2 or 3 in terms of interest,” the 226th-ranked Lahiri said. “It’s growing.”

the day by running his tee shot over the green at the par-3 first hole. A tentative chip came up 8 feet short, and he missed the putt. After another bogey at the third, it appeared he was headed for a repeat of the last major championship. Woods was actually tied for the 36-hole lead at the U.S. Open, but a 75 on Saturday wiped out his chances. This time, at least, he rallied. That birdie putt at No. 6, rapped from one side of the green to the other, turned the tide. Woods rolled in a much shorter birdie at the next hole, came up about an inch short of a third straight birdie from the fringe at No. 8, then stuck his tee shot at the par-3 ninth to 4 feet, setting up yet another birdie. “Considering that I got off to such a bad start, I figured if I could get to 1-over par or even for the day through the turn, that would have been a positive going to the back nine,” Woods said. “I actually happened to turn at 1 under for the day, which was a bonus.” Woods had a prime opportunity to take off another stroke at the par-5 11th, but he misread the putt and settled for par. Another misjudgment at the 15th led to bogey, pretty much snuffing out any chance of getting on a roll coming to the clubhouse. “I had a few looks on that back nine,” Woods said. “I just didn’t make them.” For a while, he was at least positioned to play in the final group with Scott, which would have allowed him to put some firsthand pressure on a guy who’s never won a major — and set up all sorts of intrigue. Scott’s caddie is Steve Williams, who used to be on Woods’ bag. Instead, Woods will again play in the next-tolast group, as he did Saturday, paired with Snedeker. McDowell and Scott will bring up the rear.

erwise, at least beyond their baby pictures. This summer’s adult darkroom class didn’t meet its minimum enrollment to proceed, and only a couple of experienced photographers regularly take advantage of open darkroom hours at the center. Nina is one of those, but most of the other youths enroll in the week of darkroom photography the center offers to middle and high school students at its summer Arts Institute. Instructor Ann Dean, who teaches both digital and darkroom photography, says the old-fashioned process is especially appealing for youths. “Being in the darkroom is just much more hands-

manage his money wisely, but his excitement to be on campus and taking classes with other students like himself is overwhelming. Kittel decided to pursue drawing as a career after taking his first drawing class less than three years ago. Although he had been exposed to artwork before then, Kittel had never actually tried his hand at being the creator of the pieces. “I wasn’t one of those kids who grew up drawing every-

thing,” Kittel said. He took Drawing I as a sophomore at Lawrence High School, and after enjoying it he continued to enroll in the art courses offered there. Kittel excelled at drawing despite his lack of experience and something that one would think would be a hindrance to an artist: Kittel is partially color-blind. He mixes up red with green and blue with purple and sometimes will complete a drawing using the wrong color. Kittel says that even though he can’t always tell if he is using the correct color, it usually doesn’t affect his artwork. Normally a classmate or instructor will tell him when the color in a picture is wrong. His interest in drawing

“It’s tangible, you can feel it, it’s there,” she says. For Mason Denneler, also 15 and heading into his sophomore year at LHS, the art institute course was his first time using a darkroom. Only about 10 of the 40-some shots he took earlier in the week turned out. And rolling and developing film in complete darkness took several tries. But as a nicely composed, crisp print of the grandfather clock at the Watkins Community Museum of History emerged from its water bath, Mason said he might even prefer darkroom to digital. “This one definitely takes a lot more work and meticulous adjusting,” he says, adding, “You have to be pretty patient.” Outside of her darkroom classes, Dean her-

He also received instruction outside of regular classes with former LHS art teacher and current art consultant Pat Nemchock. Kittel took two courses from Nemchock: plein air drawing and life, or figure, drawing. The classes are different from high school classes because students would draw for as long as four hours at a time compared with the 45 minutes allotted for classes in school. For Nemchock’s two-week-long plein air class, the students worked outside in the extreme heat for hours. “If the kids decide to do this ... you know they have focus,” Nemchock says. “It’s really intensive, but students don’t have an opportunity in school to do those kinds of classes.”

self doesn’t shoot on film anymore. “It’s very time consuming,” she says, and buying chemicals and film can get expensive. Digital photography has definitely “overpowered” film, she says, and she doesn’t expect that to change. But she doesn’t expect darkroom photography to die out altogether, either. As an art form and a

teaching tool, it has merit, exhibits opening she says. And even InstaAn exhibit about Quantgram, the smartphone app that makes new photos rill’s Raid on Lawrence, look old with one click, which took place Aug. 21, can’t quite capture the look 1863, will open in a public of authentic black-andwhite film photography. “I just feel like it should never be a lost art,” Dean says. “It’s beautiful.”

Kittel’s focus in Nemchock’s classes were apparent in his school art courses, too. Lawrence High School art teacher Wendy Vertacnik says he is mature and insightful, and he gives other students useful feedback on their work. “Some students may like to draw, but he just thinks about different details,” Vertacnik says. “He will try different things where some students don’t really do that.” Vertacnik encouraged Kittel to enter his work in competitions, and it paid off. Kittel won in the pastel division of the “Kansans … As Talented As You Think!” art competition hosted by the Native Sons and Daughters of Kansas. He also received a gold medal in drawing for the 2012 National Scholastic Art & Writing Award by the Alliance for Young Artists and Writers, and he got travel to New York City in June to attend a reception in honor of the competition winners.

Both award-winning drawings were of houses, and many of his works are portraits and landscapes, but Kittel has a reason for getting into industrial design rather than studio art. “I’m interested in the way people interact with objects — you can look at a piece of art and appreciate it, but you’re not interacting with it like you would, say furniture,” Kittel says. Kittel says the cool part about industrial design is that it encompasses so many parts of a person’s everyday life. It is used in the design of electronics, cars and furniture. Industrial design being all around a person is reflective of the new lifestyle Kittel will encounter when he begins at Pratt in August. “It’s going to be different being surrounded by art rather than it being only (a certain part) of my life,” Kittel says.

Marshall’s solo exhibit will be shown in the Campanella Gallery, in the Park University Library’s Millsap Foyer Entrance, 8700 N.W. River Park Drive.

or a small one? Or more TV? Her decision to return to the physically strenuous eight-show-a-week life of a Broadway stage actress indicates a willingness to jump into the deep end. Her last appearance on Broadway, which also marked her debut, was in the 2008 production of “All My Sons.” The news that she will return to a Times Square stage is also a signal that she may intend to stay in New York City. Holmes first came to stardom in the teen soap opera “Dawson’s Creek,” and had roles in such well-regarded films as “The Ice Storm,” ‘‘Go” and “Wonder Boys.” After Holmes began dating Cruise, she took a threeyear break from acting that concluded with the poorly

Preparing to get in the way Civil rights icon hopes new book inspires action

ATLANTA — There’s a photograph of President John F. Kennedy sailing on his beloved Victura on the wall of U.S. Rep. John Lewis’ 19th-floor office that bares this quote: “One man can make a difference and every man should try.” It is one of many pearls of wisdom scattered about the elder statesman’s Atlanta office, but it is this single sentiment that beats throughout “Across That Bridge: Life Lessons and a Vision for Change” (Hyperion, $22.99), Lewis’ latest book on his life and the civil rights movement for which he is known. At 72, the civil rights icon is still doing what he can to make a difference, to move us one step closer to the “beloved community” he dreamed of while growing up in rural Pike County, Ala., and talks about every chance he gets. And so it isn’t surprising that the idea for “Across That Bridge” came to him during a conversation with a book editor who’d just heard him address a group of middle school students visiting the United Nations. “She suggested that I write about some of the lessons I’d learned,” Lewis recalled recently. Lewis said he soon realized there was a whole generation of young people and some not so young who could benefit from knowing that the movement didn’t just happen. “We didn’t just wake up one morning and say we were going to march. We prepared ourselves,” he said. For his part, that preparation began on his parents’ farm, where he and his eight siblings picked cotton, gathered peanuts and raised chickens and John Robert Lewis dreamed of becoming a preacher. “It was a different world, a different life,” he said. “In spite of the difficulties, my family was a very warm and loving family. I had all these first cousins and aunts and uncles. It was the essence of the ‘beloved community.’” Still, he said, he was both-

In 1958, he left home to attend American Baptist Theological Seminary in Tennessee, where every Tuesday he met with a group of students at nearby Fisk University to engage in philosophical discussions about nonviolent protest and civil disobedience. When the sit-ins began in 1960, Lewis said they got a call from a local minister asking what they could do to support the movement. Thus began Lewis’ long walk into national prominence. In a wide-ranging interview in his downtown office, he talked about the making of the movement and his latest book. He said he hopes it will inspire each of us to do something to make life better for others. Here’s what else he had to say: Q: You say social transformation begins within. Do you recall the moment when you came to that realization? A: Not the precise moment, but along the way, through training, discipline and testing, I accepted the philosophy of nonviolence as a way of life. If you’re going to build the “beloved com-

Novel depicts Americans abroad, unmoored By Carolyn Kellogg Los Angeles Times

Is there an English word for loopy open-heartedness, for humor that careens into extremes but is grounded in surprisingly moving characters? “Vonnegutian” is too much for a Daniel Salinas, book that doesn’t try to rebartender, flect, in a larger sense, on Lawrence the human condition, and “I just got my card and I’m it’s a lot to put on a firstnot sure what I’m looktime novelist. But Matt ing for. Maybe games or Dojny’s world view is so books about games.” much the same: Maybe his book is “Vonnegutian”ish. In “The Festival of Earthly Delights,” Dojny takes us to Puchai, a small, fictional country in Southeast Asia. We get there via the letters of Boyd Darrow, a twentysomething Our Poet’s Showcase American who has just features work by area moved to Puchai with his poets. Submit your poetry girlfriend, Ulla.

their relationship has hit a rough patch; moving to Puchai is a hopeful attempt at restoration. Boyd’s mind is less on the relationship than on his new environs — it’s a classic fish-out-of-water story, Westerner-abroad edition. There are unusual foodstuffs, miscommunication, an unfamiliar religion, odd American expats, treasured antiquities and political and romantic undercurrents. It builds toward the festival of the book’s title, which is part talent show, part Halloween and part debauched religious celebration. At night, as Ulla sleeps, Boyd sits on an upturned bucket outside their apartment to write about his experiences. There are impossible names — Mrs. Haraporn Leekanchanakoth-Young is Ulla’s boss, and a friendly neighbor is Maa. After failing to pronounce the seeminglysimple “Maa” correctly, Boyd agrees to call him Mr. Horse, his nickname. Everyone has one, giv-

ing the story a jaunty air: Who can be annoyed at Mr. Horse, even if he does play Lionel Richie on his guitar too often? The pleasure comes from Boyd who, anxiety-ridden or bloodied, remains bemused and amused. When his new boss, a Vietnam vet, demands that Boyd take a vial of urine back to America and pour it on the ground for him, Boyd is able to play along agreeably. A bathroom scene that should be disgusting is a riot. His way of seeing the world is off-kilter, as when he’s attacked by a group of rotten-fruitwielding, gypsy-like malchak teenagers. “I sat halfway up. My body felt as if it had been hollowed out like a pumpkin and filled with toothpaste,” he writes. He’s helped from this predicament, and others, by his boss’ daughter Shiney. She’s a college student home for the summer, accompanied by her American boyfriend, a

bearded know-it-all Boyd can’t stand. Since Boyd is ostensibly married, his interest in Shiney shouldn’t be romantic, but it’s clear he’s falling for her. With Ulla, Boyd gets to know the university faculty; thanks to Shiney, the couple meet the younger malchaks, an ethnic minority group subject to discrimination, who throw phenomenally loud dance parties and play music with a revolutionary bent. Boyd’s letters are never sent; addressed to an absent brother, they fill one notebook after another. The covers are included as fully illustrated pages within the book, manic mash-ups of English non sequiturs and Photoshopped imagery. These were created by Dojny, who has worked as an illustrator, as were the drawings that punctuate the novel. They, like the fake song lyrics that appear, create space to take a different kind of mental breath in the narrative.

For those who are just girding themselves to jump in to Twitter, Twitter has posted a list of six rules for authors. Here’s an abridged edition of the list: 1. Be authentic, be yourself. Twitter offers a direct, instant connection between you and your readers; they want to know what you’re up to. 2. Share your process. Twitter is a place where fans get a deeper connection to artists, performers, scholars ... and authors. Your readers are interested in your process. Tweet a bit about how your work. 3. Engage with your readers. Twitter is also a place where your fans can directly engage with you, however much you want (it doesn’t have to take up a lot of your time). You can see messages from other users in the “Connect” tab on your Twitter homepage. 4. Find influencers. Twitter allows you to send a public message (via the @ reply) to anyone else using Twitter. Just use the Search section on Twitter’s homepage to find other users. An idea: Who is your favorite living author? See if they’re on Twitter and tweet a “hello” to them. 5. Search Twitter. Just type what you’re looking for into the search tab to see what people are tweeting about right now. An idea: Is anyone tweeting about a book you wrote? Type the title into Search and find out. 6. Above all, have fun. Twitter is an exceptionally flexible platform that is ripe for creative use. Play around with it.

Should athletes compete on Sundays if it conflicts with their religious beliefs? Choices show how important God is in person’s life The Rev. Rob Baldwin, pastor, Trinity Episcopal Church, 1011 Vt.: While the Episcopal Church doesn’t have any restrictions regarding playing sports on Sunday, I can appreciate the desire of people to respect a day dedicated to worship. In the end, a person’s religion is about the value you place upon it. By that I mean when posed with

a difficult choice, and your faith’s teachings dictate one thing while other factors in your life (pro- Baldwin fessional responsibilities, politics, etc.) suggest another, then the decision you make illustrates to God, yourself, and to the world

what is truly important to you. I had a professor who once said that whatever trumps everything else in your life is your religion, even if it has nothing to do with God. Choosing your faith over athletic purGene Page/AP Photo/AMC suits, or any other pursuit IN THIS PUBLICITY PHOTO RELEASED BY AMC, ANDREW LINCOLN AS RICK GRIMES for that matter, means that is shown in a scene from “The Walking Dead.” The popular zombie series failed to your relationship with land an Emmy nomination Thursday.

Time to survey, protest Emmy nominations By Frazier Moore Associated Press

Personal conviction can be more important than sports Deacon Godsey, pastor of vision implementation at Vintage Church, Liberty Memorial Central Middle School, 1400 Mass.: The short answer is, no, they shouldn’t if it conflicts with their religious beliefs. To do so would violate one’s conscience, which is rarely (if ever) a good thing. A necessary follow-up, however, is: Does their religion explicitly forbid the athlete from competing in certain circumstances, or is it a matter of personal conviction that may or may not apply to others of the same faith? Some Christians, for example, choose not to compete on Sundays in light of their beliefs about the “Sabbath” day of rest. In light of that conviction, it’s good for them to abstain from competing in a way that would violate their conscience. The most famous

example here is that of British runner Eric Liddell, portrayed in the Oscar-winning film Godsey “Chariots of Fire.” (Liddell refused to run his best event at the 1924 Olympics when it was scheduled on a Sunday.) Other followers of Jesus, like myself, apply the principle of Sabbath differently, and are totally at peace with competing on a Sunday. The obvious example of Tim Tebow comes to mind: If he can’t compete on Sundays, he’s clearly chosen the wrong profession. (Others might think that anyway, but that’s a different issue altogether.) Muslim athletes deal with this principle as well, in light of the fast-

ing restrictions during the month of Ramadan. Hall of Fame NBA center Hakeem Olajuwon faced this on an annual basis and was able to be true to his faith and to his team, by both fasting and helping his team win NBA championships (ironically, many have noted that his play and statistics improved during that stretch of the season). For me, it’s a matter of personal conviction. If your religion allows for it and you’re at peace with it, then I’d say, “Have at it.” If it’s clearly forbidden or you don’t feel at peace with it, then — for what it’s worth — I’d say, “Don’t do it.” Basically, don’t avoid it out of unnecessary false guilt, but don’t engage in it and violate your conscience either. — Send email to Deacon Godsey at deacon@vintagelawrence. com.

Opening ceremony tensions boiling over at Olympics By Rob Harris Associated Press

LONDON — Transforming the Olympic Stadium into a rural idyll is proving far from serene for Danny Boyle ahead of the opening ceremony. As he perfects this Friday’s curtain raiser, the Oscar-winning director is discovering that art and sport can be a volatile mix. London organizers have acknowledged tension between Boyle and Olympic broadcasters, while trying to downplay suggestions of a full-blown standoff. Boyle has already been forced to trim parts of the ceremony to ensure it finishes in time for spectators to get home before public transportation shuts down. And the “Slumdog Millionaire” director is now locked in negotiations with Olympic Broadcasting Services about camera positions. The cameras installed in the 80,000-seat stadium are in prime spots to capture sports action. But Boyle wants his own cameras in place to capture a cinematic-style “Isles of Wonder”-themed show. “There are creative tensions in here,” London organizing committee spokeswoman Jackie Brock-Doyle said. “Right now the discussion is where cameras are going ... In any kind of show you have got creative people all doing all different elements of it, getting towards that opening night I think people get a bit excited.” Adding cameras involves removing seating, although tickets for them hadn’t been sold. “Danny was very keen to make sure that the cov-

As artistic director, Boyle has been inspired by William Shakespeare’s “The Tempest,” and the ceremony will open with a British countryside setting complete with live farm animals. Images of it have already emerged, with The Sun newspaper on Thursday showing parts of a set in the stadium featuring thatched cottages, an

That sound drowning out the applause for this year’s Emmy nominees announced Thursday morning is the grinding of teeth over worthy shows and stars Emmy ignored. For instance, Jeff Probst already has four Emmys for hosting CBS’ “Survivor.” But did he deserve to get voted off the Emmy island when this year’s nominations were handed out? What about “The Killing”? Viewers were disgruntled by the mystery underlying this AMC drama, but you didn’t have to care who killed Rosie Larsen to realize that costars Mireille Enos and Joel Kinnaman gave two of the year’s best performances. Sure, Fox’s “American Idol” has slipped in the ratings, and two of its judges are jumping ship. But does that explain why this TV juggernaut has been snubbed for a nomination as best realitycompetition program — for the first time ever? Meanwhile, Fox’s “House,” which recently ended its eight-year run, goes empty-handed into Emmy annals deprived of one last chance for a best drama trophy, or a best actor nod for its star, Hugh Laurie. Other lame-duck series are getting a similar Emmy cold shoulder. FX’s firefighter drama “Rescue Me” has now concluded its seven-year run with routine Emmy neglect for this outstanding series and its gifted star-writer-producer. And ABC’s much-honored “Desperate Housewives” will be remembered in its eighth and last season only with a nomination for the late Kathryn Joosten in the category of supporting actress in a comedy. FX scored big with its splendid comedy “Louie” and its creepy “American Horror Story.” But why not some Emmy love for “Sons of Anarchy,” the network’s riotous motorcycle-gang drama that boasts a gang of wonder-

THIS UNDATED IMAGE released by History shows Kevin Costner portraying Devil Anse Hatfield from the History network’s miniseries “Hatfields & McCoys.” The program was nominated for an Emmy award on Thursday for outstanding miniseries or movie. Costner was also nominated for outstanding lead actor in a miniseries or movie. ful actors, including 2011 Golden Globe winner Katey Sagal? Emmy continues to shrink from vampire and zombies. Again this year, both wildly popular “True Blood” on HBO and “The Walking Dead” on AMC were shut out of major drama awards. HBO’s mystical comedy-drama “Enlightened” was spurned, as was its co-creator and star, Laura Dern, whose Golden Globe-winning performance as its scrambled heroine is among the best of her career. And while all six regulars on “Modern Family” snagged nominations, a fellow ABC comedy, “Happy Endings,” went unnoticed by Emmy, as did its six excellent costars. Not one, but two freshman drama series on the Starz network were overlooked: “Boss,” starring Kelsey Grammer as the tyrannical mayor of Chicago, and “Magic City,” set in the sordid glamour of 1960s Miami Beach. But both series will be courting Emmy with second seasons. With the broadcast

networks continuing to cede Emmy glory to cable, Emmy seemed suitably unimpressed with last season’s new crop of broadcast shows. Only nine freshman series on the five broadcast networks got so much as a lone minor nomination, and only one, Fox’s comedy “New Girl,” scored a major acting nod. In fact, it got two of them: for lead actress Zooey Deschanel and supporting actor Max Greenfield. But what about two other breakout hits from last season: CBS’ sitcom “2 Broke Girls” and ABC’s fairy-tale drama “Once Upon a Time”? Couldn’t Emmy have made room for at least one of the funny “Broke” costars, Kat Dennings and Beth Behrs? And why was Emmy blind to the spell cast by any of the “Once Upon a Time” ensemble? When it comes to Emmys, AMC’s “Mad Men” has nothing to complain about. The advertising drama continues its reign this year by picking up a leading 17 Emmy nominations. But, oddly, none of those was for costumes. Even though the series has never won in this category, it has landed a best costume nomination every year since “Mad Men” began. Why none this year? Viewers who savor the characters’ eye-popping ’60s sartorial style have to be wondering. If Emmy’s annual bumper crop for “Mad Men” has become ritual, another of this year’s big scorers is, by contrast, a big surprise. “Hatfields & McCoys,” a three-night miniseries that aired at the end of May, made history on — fittingly — History channel by averaging 13.8 million viewers as the most-watched miniseries ever on cable. Following on that ratings triumph, the program (recounting the famous interfamily feud) collected 16 nominations. Nothing to argue about there: This is the sort of outof-nowhere surprise that Emmy watchers thrive on.

BRIEFLY campaign to sell iced coffee. Ngo says Cumberland is flattered by the attention its ads featuring “the Hoff” are drawing. She’s just asks anyone with a Hasselhoff to keep it safe. Sixty-year-old Hasselhoff is best known in the U.S. for his work alongside a talking car in the TV show “Knight Rider” and as a lifeguard in “Baywatch.”

That means Mr. Darcy “buried inside the depths” of Elizabeth Bennet in “Pride and Prejudice” and Dr. Watson declaring his “joy of knowing other men.” Clandestine managing director Claire Siemaszkiewicz (sih-MASS’-kuh-wihtz) says she has always been drawn to “the underlying sexual tension” in older novels. The new editions were started before the “Fifty Shades” phenomenon, but the release date was moved up to July 30 in hopes of attracting fans of E.L. James’ erotic trilogy.

Xeriscaping beats the heat, drought C

hoosing plants that are adapted to and appropriate for the local environment is always a good decision, and the drought we are experiencing in much of Kansas is making me think about xeriscaping. Xeriscaping should not be confused in any way with zero-scaping, or lack of landscaping.

Garden Calendar

Jennifer Smith smithjen@ksu.edu

Xeriscape gardens can be just as lush as any other garden with the right plant choices. There are two public xeriscape gardens here in Lawrence that exhibit this — one at the Lawrence Rotary Arboretum, 5100 W. 27th St., and the other at the Douglas County Master Gardeners Demonstration Gardens, 2110 Harper St. (Douglas County Fairgrounds). Sometimes people walk by the xeriscape garden at the Fairgrounds and say things like, “What are peonies and irises doing in a xeriscape garden?” or “What are those beautiful flowers?” Since peonies and irises (and daylilies, lilacs and others) have survived on their own on Kansas homesteads for decades, it seems a nobrainer to me that these plants qualify as drought tolerant. I am guessing that at the Lawrence Rotary Arboretum Xeriscape Garden, passersby are also asking more about the beautiful flowers than realizing the garden exists on little to no water. Some of my favorite xeriscape selections are butterfly bush and caryopteris, both medium-sized shrubs that bloom throughout the summer in shades of purple, blue and white. Perennial flowers with pink and orange flowers such as gaillardia, coneflower, and butterfly milkweed provide an excellent contrast. Sedums are also a great

Many common ornamental grasses are also droughttolerant enough to qualify for xeriscape gardens. Some of the prettiest are varieties of Calamagrostis (Karl Foerster is an example), Panicum or switchgrass (Shenandoah is my favorite), and the native Little Bluestem. The xeriscape garden at the fairgrounds includes a whitebud tree (cultivated variety of redbud), salvia and sea lavender amongst the previously mentioned sedums and other perennials. My own garden — like many residential ones — was not planned with xeriscaping in mind, but it is headed that direction as I tire of emptying rain barrels and dragging water hoses. When an old rosebush began to fade from the stress of black spot disease

and stressful summers, I replaced it with a drought-tolerant Pragense viburnum that also has few pest problems. Xeriscaping, as it was developed in Colorado in the mid-1980s, also teaches gardeners to amend the soil prior to planting, water deeply and infrequently when establishing new plantings, use mulch, group plants with similar light and moisture requirements,

and practice good maintenance practices with fertilizing, pruning, etc. A more comprehensive list of drought-tolerant plant options is available at K-State Research and Extension– Douglas County, 2110 Harper St.; by calling 843-7058; or on our website at douglas.ksu. edu. The list is called “Waterwise Plants: Trees and Ornamentals for South Central

Kansas” because it was developed in Sedgwick County, but all of the plants on the list are also appropriate for northeast Kansas and the Lawrence area. — Jennifer Smith is the Horticulture Extension Agent for K-State Research and Extension in Douglas County.

Once thought garish, Victorian furniture back in favor By Terry Kovel

Collectors prize furniture that is created by a famous maker, but antique furniture is often not identified with a label. Experts can “attribute” a piece to a maker by comparing it to other known furniture that has a label or a history of ownership. John Henry Belter was one of the most famous American furniture makers working in the late 1800s. He invented a way to glue six to eight thin layers of rosewood (with the grain going in different directions) into a large strong piece that could be curved. It was a type of plywood that he patented in 1858. He was a talented carver and added piercings and carvings of roses, busts of important people, grapes and grapevines, and scrolls. Belter was born in Germany in 1804, came to New York City in 1833, and made furniture for the wealthy from 1844 until he died in 1863. He specialized in furniture for the parlor, including sofas, armchairs, side chairs and a center table. All were made of rosewood. The chairs had no upholstery on the back, just rosewood. He favored

in the 1960s. Can you give me any information about this? Your set was made by Gense (Gustaf Eriksson NySilverfabriken), a company founded by Gustav Erikson in Eskilstuna, Sweden, in 1856. Gense introduced a stainless steel flatware pattern called “Focus De Luxe” in 1957. Pieces have modern shapes and black handles made of polyoxymethylene. The pattern was designed by Folke Arstrom, the artistic director at Gense from 1940 to 1960. The company became part of the K.A. Rasmussen Group in 1995. Herschede is the name of the store that sold your tableware. Frank Herschede had a jewelry store in business in Cincinnati from 1877 to 1995. Gense still makes stainless steel flatware, but your pattern has been discontinued. It is very collectible today, and pieces have been displayed in the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. It is a famous flatware set, listed as one of 100 best designed products in modern times. Your set would sell for about $250.

THIS TABLE SOLD at a Neal Auction in New Orleans in April 2012 for $27,060. The heads carved into the wooden edge of the table top were the clue to the maker. It is attributed to John Henry Belter. the Rococo Revival style with curved legs, arms and tops of backs. Pieces were varnished to look shiny, new and wellcared-for. Few pieces were marked, but the laminated rosewood, the carvings of heads of poets and the founding fathers, and even the style of the grapevines can be identified. In the 1950s his furniture was considered garish and in poor taste. But by the 1960s, collectors started to realize his furniture is very well made and his designs are the best of the late Victorian period. It became an expensive

collector favorite. Though all antique furniture is selling for less than it did before 2008, there is renewed interest in Belter. At a recent auction, a 40-inch-wide table, made about 1850 attributed to Belter, sold for $27,060. It featured carved heads like those on other labeled Belter tables.

According to the lamp’s tag, yours is from 1928. The Quick-Lite technology allowed the white gasoline-fueled lamps to be lit with a match instead of a torch. At the time, Coleman Co. offered to convert their older desk lamps to Quick-Lite for $3.50. “Q” refers to the model; “307” refers to the ribbed glass shade.

Will that favors only one child is hurtful Dear Annie: Six years ago, my 54-year-old divorced sister, “Sue,” decided to move in with my parents because she was afraid to live by herself. At the time, Sue had a part-time job and my parents were in good health. Within a year, however, my father was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and Mom developed heart problems. The other day I visited Mom, and she informed me that Sue can no longer work because she has to take care of them full time. She wants to pay Sue for her “services,” as well as take care of all of Sue’s bills. Mind you, Sue built up a nice savings account because my parents paid for everything, and she now has more than $150,000 in the bank. She also will be receiving a portion of her ex-husband’s pension in a few years. Despite this, Sue has convinced my parents that

she will be homeless. I could live with that, but Mom also let me know that she is changing her will so Sue gets everything. She based this decision on the fact that I seem to be doing OK and my son, her only grandson, is fine. I know that taking care of my parents is not an easy job. I also realize it’s their money and they are entitled to do what they want with it. But Sue has always been the golden child, and taking me out of the will is a slap in the face. I’m

Dear Thought: Parents often don’t realize that leaving all of their possessions to one child creates hurt feelings, jealousy and estrangements. It doesn’t matter that one child is needier, only that all children are acknowledged. Please tell your mother how you feel. Ask whether she would leave you and your son a cherished possession as a keepsake. When she understands that it’s truly not about the money, we hope she will reconsider.

Teenagers choose their favorite stars A fixture of midsummer entertainment since 1999, The Teen Choice Awards (7 p.m. Sunday, Fox) returns, hosted by Demi Lovato (“Camp Rock”) and Kevin McHale (“Glee”). Scheduled musical performers include Justin Bieber, Carly Rae Jepsen, Flo Rida and No Doubt. This is McHale’s second time as host. He shared those duties with four others in 2010. If one has to choose the teen character of the moment, it’s probably anything played by the Kristen Stewart, whose films “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 1” and “Snow White and the Huntsman” lead the pack with seven nominations apiece. Stewart, who was nominated for three Teen Choice Awards, will return to the screen this fall in “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 2.” She also appears in the yet-to-be-released adaptation of Jack Kerouac’s Beat classic “On the Road,” a novel that has been considered unfilmable for more than half a century. It was screened at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival and given lackluster reviews. It’s not terribly often that a Teen Choice favorite stars in a film featured at the Cannes Film Festival. Or that the two events are even mentioned in the same paragraph.

Sunday’s other highlights

Decision time on the season finale of “The Bachelorette” (7 p.m., ABC).

A suburban baby sitter’s murder becomes the focus of “Inspector Lewis, Series V: Fearful Symmetry” on “Masterpiece Mystery!” (8 p.m., PBS, check local listings).

A winner emerges on “Food Network Star” (8p.m., Food).

Betrayal arrives with a familiar face on “Falling Skies” (8 p.m., TNT).

A taste of sacred blood on “True Blood” (8p.m., HBO).

The DEA discovers some new evidence on “Breaking Bad” (9 p.m., AMC).

Elaine (Sigourney Weaver) sends her ex-husband, the expresident, on a diplomatic mission on “Political Animals” (9 p.m., USA).

Feeling eclipsed by his teen co-stars and belittled in cyberspace for his weight, Matt (Matt LeBlanc) makes seriously unwise decisions on “Episodes” (9:30 p.m., Showtime).

BIRTHDAYS Former Senate Majority Leader Bob Dole, R-Kan., is 89. Actor-comedian Orson Bean is 84. Fashion designer Oscar de la Renta is 80. Actress Louise Fletcher is 78.

JACQUELINE BIGAR’S STARS

For Sunday, July 22: Your ability to understand others is enhanced. Your sixth sense often points to the right direction. If you are single, your appeal attracts many suitors. If you are attached, the two of you naturally feed each other’s energy and perspective. The Stars Show the Kind of Day You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult Aries (March 21-April 19)  You move away from being concerned with your immediate environment and a potential domestic change. Suddenly, you turn into a kid who is ready to romp the day away. Tonight: Let the good times roll. Taurus (April 20-May 20)  You might really need some time to clear up paperwork, return calls and enjoy some R and R. You must give yourself this time in order to stay fully functional. Tonight: Happy at home. Gemini (May 21-June 20)  Make phone calls to friends you have not stayed in contact with but who you think of often. Making plans together in the near future might feel very good. Tonight: Hang out. Cancer (June 21-July 22)  You might want to indulge someone, but there are limits to what you can do. Also, be aware that you do not need to spend money to let this person know how much you care. Tonight: Don’t forget to treat yourself. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)  You feel great and decide to approach others. You quickly could discover that others are unusually responsive. Tonight: Whatever you want.

BE NICE TO YOUR FOOD By Turner Givens

Dear Annie: I am a healthy, single 65-yearold male. Is it wrong to look at pornography on the Internet? — Confused Dear Confused: That’s a loaded question. It is normal for men to look at pornography provided it doesn’t become obsessive or prevent them from forming normal attachments to actual women. And that’s the main problem with Internet porn. It isn’t a photo in a girly magazine. It’s a virtual fantasy life that fulfills a man’s every wish and creates unrealistic expectations of what relationships should be. We can’t tell you whether you have crossed that line, but caveat emptor. — Send questions to anniesmailbox@comcast.net, or Annie’s Mailbox, P.O. Box 118190 Chicago, IL 60611.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)  If you want to, take a lazy day. Feeding your mind and catching up on some R and R could be healthy, as you typically push yourself very hard. Tonight: Play it low-key. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)  Join friends, especially if they are involved in some group sport or activity. Playing a game of softball or just sunbathing could be fun. Tonight: Where the action is. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)  Return calls and get together with family. Someone in this group seems to need all the attention. Tonight: Forget tomorrow. Live now. Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)  A day trip could provide you with a lot of R and R and help you gain perspective on a situation. If you choose to go with someone, this escape also will help your bond. Tonight: Hang out as long as you can. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)  A partner makes a request that you might not want to say “no” to. Adjust your day accordingly. Tonight: Let relaxing happen. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)  Others come forward with great ideas; some have to do with plans, others about a situation in your life. You always value your friends, but especially at the present moment. Tonight: You pick the “how, where and when.” Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)  Complete a project rather than begin a new one. You could be overwhelmed by everything that is happening, but maintain your focus. Tonight: Do for you. — The astrological forecast should be read for entertainment only.

Calls for gun control stir little support By David Espo and Nancy Benac

A CHILD BATHES before going to a makeshift school at a camp for people displaced by the 2010 earthquake in Portau-Prince, Haiti, in this June 13 photo.

Everyone is scared of the NRA. Number Associated Press one, there are some things worth losing for in politics and to be able to prevent carnage like WASHINGTON — Gun control advocates sputter this is worth losing for.” at their own impotence. The National Rifle Association is politically ascendant. And Barack Obama’s White House pledges to safeguard the Second Amendment in its first official response to the deaths of at least 12 people in a mass shooting at a new Batman movie screening in suburban Denver. Once, every highly publicized outbreak of gun violence produced strong calls from Democrats and a few Republicans for tougher controls on firearms. Now those pleas are muted, a political paradox that’s grown more pronounced in an era scarred by Columbine, Virginia Tech, the wounding of a congresswoman and now the shooting in a suburban movie theater where carnage is expected on-screen only. “We don’t want sympathy. We want action,” Dan Gross, president of the Brady campaign said Friday as President Barack Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney mourned the dead. Ed Rendell, the former Democratic governor of Pennsylvania, was more emphatic than many in the early hours after the shooting. “Everyone is scared of the NRA,” he said on MSNBC. “Number one, there are some things worth losing for in politics and to be able to prevent carnage like this is worth losing for.” Yet it’s been more than a decade since gun-control advocates had a realistic hope of getting the type of legislation they seek, despite predictions that each shocking outburst of violence would lead to action.

— Ed Rendell, the former Democratic governor of Pennsylvania, after the mass shooting in Colorado In 1994, Congress approved a 10-year ban on 19 types of military-style assault weapons. Some Democrats quickly came to believe the legislation contributed to their loss of the House a few months later. Five years later, Vice President Al Gore cast a tie-breaking Senate vote on legislation to restrict sales at gun shows. The two events turned out to be the high-water mark of recent Democratic drives to enact federal legislation aimed at reducing gun violence, and some Republicans said they could see the shift coming. “The news media in its lather to distort this whole issue may be wrong in their estimation that this will help Al Gore,” thenSenate Majority Leader Trent Lott, R-Miss., said in an Associated Press interview a few weeks after the tie-breaking vote. “As a matter of fact, it may already have hurt him, and it may hurt him a lot more.” By 2004, when the assault weapon ban lapsed, congressional Democrats made no serious attempt to pass an extension. President George W. Bush was content to let it fade into history. Public sentiment had swung. According to a Gallup poll in 1990, 78 percent of those surveyed said laws covering the sale of firearms should be stricter, while 19 percent said they should remain the same or be loosened. By the fall of 2004 sup-

port for tougher laws had dropped to 54 percent. In last year’s sounding, 43 percent said they should be stricter, and 55 percent said they should stay the same or be made more lenient. In terms of electoral politics, Harry Wilson, a Roanoke College professor and author of a book on gun politics, said violent crime has been declining in recent years and, “It becomes increasingly difficult to make the argument that we need stricter gun control laws.” Additionally, he said in some regions, gun control “can be a winning issue for Democrats. But nationally, it’s a loser ... and they have figured that out.” Attempts to emphasize the issue will “really motivate the opposition. And in a political campaign, nobody wants to do that,” he said. At its core, Wilson said, the issue divides rural voters from urban voters. Often, that means Republicans on one side, Democrats on the other. But not always. In the current election cycle, the NRA has made 88 percent of its political donations to Republicans, and 12 percent to Democrats, according to OpenSecrets. org. The disparity obscures that the organization consistently supports some Democrats, a strategy that allows it to retain influence in both parties. It also reported spending $2.9 million on lobbying last year.

U.S. pledge to rebuild Haiti after quake not being met By Martha Mendoza and Trenton Daniel Associated Press

PORT-AU-PRINCE, HAITI — The deadly earthquake that leveled Haiti’s capital more than two years ago brought a thread of hope: a promise of renewal. With the United States taking the lead, international donors pledged billions of dollars to help the country “build back better,” breaking its cycle of dependency. But after the rubble was cleared and the dead buried, what the quake laid bare was the depth of Haiti’s dysfunction. Today, the fruits of an ambitious, $1.8 billion U.S. reconstruction promise are hard to find. Immediate, basic needs for bottled water, temporary shelter and medicine were the obvious priorities. But projects fundamental to Haiti’s transformation out of poverty, such as permanent housing and electric plants in the heavily hit capital of Port-au-Prince have not taken off. Critics say the U.S. effort to reconstruct Haiti was flawed from the start. While “build back better” was a comforting notion, there wasn’t much of a foundation to build upon. Haiti’s chronic political instability and lack of coordinated leadership between Haiti and the U.S. meant crucial decisions about construction projects were slow to be approved. Red tape stalled those that were. The international community’s $10 billion effort was also hindered by its pledge to get approval for projects from the Haitian government.

The U.S. has spent about half the $1.8 billion it pledged for helping Haiti recover and rebuild after the Jan. 12, 2010, earthquake. How the money spent so far breaks down: Health and Disabilities: $303 million Debt relief: $245 million Food: $109 million Government and Judicial support: $103 million Shelter: $98 million Economic Security: $48 million Education: $28 million Administration and Evaluation: $27 million Energy: $18 million Industrial Sector (Ports/Transportation): $8 million — Associated Press

was, as he later described it, “paralyzed,” while his government was mostly obliterated, with 16,000 civil servants killed and most ministries in ruins. It wasn’t until earlier this year that a fully operational government was in place to sign paperwork, adopt codes and write regulations. Other delays included challenges to contracts, underestimates of what needed to be done, and land disputes. Until now, comprehensive details about who is receiving U.S. funds and how they are spending them have not been released. Contracts, budgets and a 300-item spreadsheet obtained by The Associated Press under a Freedom of Information Act request show:

! Of the $988 million spent so far, a quarter went toward debt relief to unburden the hemisphere’s poorest nation of repayments. But after Haiti’s loans were paid off, the government began borrowing again: $657 million so far, largely for oil imports rather than development projects. ! Less than 12 percent of the reconstruction money sent to Haiti after the earthquake has gone toward energy, shelter, ports or other infrastructure. At least a third, $329 million, went to projects that were awarded before the 2010 catastrophe and had little to do with the recovery — such as HIV/ AIDS programs. ! Half of the $1.8 billion the U.S. promised for rebuilding is still in the Treasury, its disbursement stymied by an understaffed U.S. Embassy in Port-auPrince in the months after the quake and by a Haitian government that was barely functional for more than a year. !" Despite State Department promises to keep spending public, some members of Congress and watchdogs say they aren’t getting detailed information about how the millions are being spent, as dozens of contractors working for the U.S. government in Haiti leave a complex money trail. “The challenges were absolutely huge and although there was a huge amount of money pledged, the structures were not there for this to be done quickly,” said former U.S. Ambassador Brian Curran. “The concept of build back better is a good one, but we were way over-optimistic about the pace we could do it.”

She refused to say what led authorities to that conclusion, but urged anyone with information about their disappearance to contact law enforcement. “We believe these girls are alive, and we are not discouraged by the passage of time since their disappearance,” Breault said. The announcement came a day after authorities finished searching Meyers Lake in the northeast Iowa town of Evansdale, which is near a path where the girls’ bikes were found. The girls vanished July 13.
