Forum explores responses to loss of city’s SRS office By Chris Hong

ONLINE: See the video at

Lawrence residents and community leaders gathered Saturday to voice their opinions about the upcoming closure of the Lawrence SRS office. Over 97 people attended the forum, sponsored by the Lawrence League of Women Voters and the United Way of Douglas County. Kay Hale, the league president, said the purpose of the forum was for providers and recipients of SRS services to begin planning a response if the

Lawrence office closes on Oct. 1 of this year. Front-line workers, social-work administrators, recipients and other concerned residents divided into respective groups, venting frustrations and sharing ideas about the forthcoming closure. “Today is really focused on trying to address the need to plan,” said Erika Dvorske, president and CEO of the United Way of Douglas County. Dvorske said the discussion was the first step to planning a response and an opportunity to assess the community’s needs.

The groups discussed several topics, including the current status of social services in Douglas County and their knowledge of the situation. Participants also talked about possible repercussions of the closure and social service needs of the state and community. After meeting, the groups shared their responses. Some said they needed more information and a definite plan about closures, adding that faceto-face contact and personal relationships with the SRS service recipients

A PARKING SPOT NEAR THE NORTHEAST CORNER OF NINTH AND MASSACHUSETTS STREETS sits vacant just after 11 a.m. during the Downtown Sidewalk Sale on Thursday. The spot remained open for more than six minutes on what is thought of by many as the busiest downtown parking day.

t is, approximately, 178 degrees in downtown Lawrence. I’m sure I could prove this with more specificity by buying a thermometer at Ernst & Son Hardware, 826 Mass. I likely could buy it for 33 percent off. It is Sidewalk Sale Day, after all. And, surely, it is the day that downtown parking becomes loopier than the barking man atop the ladder at Sunflower Outdoor & Bike Shop, 802 Mass. Just think about it: On Sidewalk Sale Day, downtown becomes like a giant magnet for parkers. And here I am driving around like a country bumpkin in my old F-150 thinking I’m going to find a parking space in the most prime of spots: northwest downtown. This is where the swimming pool is (I think I mentioned that it is warm). This is where the library is (Bookishness has no offseason). And today, this is where shoppers trying to get half-priced running socks at Garry Gribble’s Running Sports, 839 Mass., (I was told you need special socks to run, which I’m sure explains my lack of success) will try to park their bargain bandwagons. But I’m confident that I will find a spot, and I won’t have to burn two gallons of gas doing it. (Well, I’m in the F-150. I burn two gallons starting it up. But you get

I believe that on almost any day of the year, I can find a parking spot and be within a five minute’s walk of my destination. So on this Sidewalk Sale Day, I decided to put the theory to a test. I wanted to find out whether downtown Lawrence really has a parking problem, a perception problem or maybe just a walking problem. ●●●

Cathy Hamilton, executive

director of Downtown Lawrence Inc., knows what type of problem she thinks downtown has. “I completely think this is a perception problem,” Hamilton said. “I have worked down here for over 23 years, and I never remember having to walk very far.” City Commissioner Bob Schumm, a longtime restaurant owner, has been in downtown for more than 40 years. He thinks you can sum up downtown’s parking situation pretty easily. “There is always a perception that there is not enough parking because most people would like to park on Mass. Street,” Schumm said. “Most people would like to eat tenderloin steak instead of round steak, too. But in reality, there’s plenty of beef to go around.” As Schumm points out, there are free, two-hour parking lots just one block off every downtown stretch of Massachusetts Street, except for the 600 block. Even on that block, there are free two-hour spaces along the ramps of the Riverfront Parking Garage at Sixth and New Hampshire streets. In addition, there are 10-hour parking meters throughout the downtown area where motorists can purchase two-and-a-half Please see PARKING, page 2A

Married “the right person,” her husband Bruce, whom she met at graduate school at Yale University. The two have been professional collaborators as well. “My career as well as my personal life has been shaped by that partnership,” she said, so they both figure they’d better keep it going.

were a necessity. Others were more blunt, simply stating they needed the Lawrence office to remain open. Hank Booth, director of government and community affairs for the Lawrence Chamber of Commerce, wanted more time for negotiations to proceed. He also urged residents to refrain from uncivil speech and behavior. “The political barbs have got to stop,” Booth said. “We will not get a working dialogue with Topeka if the hurling of insults continues.” Other local leaders participating in the discussions were state Sen.

Library puts on mysterious sale Getting lost in a book this summer will be easier thanks to A Most Mysterious Book Sale, put on by the Friends of the Lawrence Public Library. The event will be next Saturday and Sunday in the library’s auditorium at 707 Vt. The used book sale will include mysteries, thrillers, true crime and other books for children, teens and adults. The sale benefits the library and its programs and collections.

The F-150 rolls with confidence. It really does. I know that soccer moms across the city are laughing at me. Trying to find a convenient parking spot for the pool on Sidewalk Sale Day? Such a male. But I have reason to be confident. Since about 9 a.m., I’ve been out driving and parking in downtown Lawrence. Not once have I failed in my goal of finding a parking space that is within five minutes of my destination. I’ve been to the library, I’ve been to the GAP, I’ve been to Sylas & Maddy’s ice cream, and I’ve been to a barber shop in the 800 block of Mass.

L A W R E N C E If you like shaky, handheld videos of a guy in cowboy boots and a dress shirt, you’ll love these. (It’s like “The Blair Witch Project” meets John Denver.) I do have a strategy for finding a primo pool spot. I find that when it comes to downtown parking, it is helpful to know a little geography. Get off the beaten path of Massachusetts Street, grasshopper. Stay away from the library lot, too, on a day like this. You would need your Elmer Fudd cap because you’ll certainly have to hunt for a spot, and get a little lucky. Instead, I head for the relatively small city lot at Sixth and Vermont streets. It is just north of the First State Bank and Trust building. It has entrances off both Vermont and Kentucky streets. My confidence was justified. About 1:30 in the afternoon on Sidewalk Sale Day, there are seven empty spaces in the lot. (Although two are parallel spaces. They are dead to me. The F-150 and I do not parallel park.) I spend 25 cents for two hours and 30 minutes of parking. I walk down the shaded side of the street and arrive at the front gate of the pool in just over three minutes. How was the swim, you ask? Can you believe it? They wouldn’t let me swim without trunks. Come on, it is Sidewalk Sale Day. — City reporter Chad Lawhorn can be reached at 832-6362. Follow him at

Top dogs stand and deliver


Police were slow to arrive to massacre Police arrived at an island massacre about an hour and a half after a gunman first opened fire, slowed because they didn’t have quick access to a helicopter and then couldn’t find a boat to make their way to the scene just several hundred yards offshore. The assailant surrendered when police finally reached him, but 82 people died before that. Survivors of the shooting spree have described hiding and fleeing into the water to escape the gunman, but a police briefing Saturday detailed for the first time how long the terror lasted — and how long victims waited for help. The shooting came on the heels of what police told The Associated Press was an “Oklahoma citytype” bombing in Oslo’s downtown: It targeted a government building, was allegedly perpetrated by a homegrown assailant and used the same mix of fertilizer and fuel that blew up a federal building in the U.S. in 1995. In all, at least 89 people were killed in the twin attacks that police are blaming on the same suspect, 32-year-old Norwegian Anders Behring Breivik. “He has confessed to the factual circumstances,” Breivik’s defense lawyer, Geir Lippestad, told public broadcaster NRK. Lippestad said his client had also made some comments about his motives. 2 | WASHINGTON, D.C. Nick Krug/Journal-World Photos

LEFT: Roxy, a yellow lab, catches some rest at the feet of her owner, Daisy Johnson, Lecompton, before competition Saturday.

President Barack Obama met for less than an hour Saturday with congressional leaders in crisis talks, and a leading Republican said afterward that top lawmakers were “committed to working on new legislation” to cut federal spending and avert an unprecedented U.S. default. “The president wanted to know that there was a plan for preventing national default,” Senate GOP leader Mitch McConnell said in a statement issued shortly after the brief meeting at the White House. “The bipartisan leadership in Congress is committed to working on new legislation that will prevent default while substantially reducing Washington spending,” McConnell said. Neither Obama nor any of the lawmakers with whom he met spoke to reporters after the meeting. The president was flanked at the bargaining table by Republican House Speaker John Boehner of Ohio and Democratic Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada. Also at the table were Vice President Joe Biden, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and McConnell, R-Ky.



School board may not have to raise taxes


Airlines take savings from expired taxes Airlines are tossing consumers aside and grabbing the benefit of lower federal taxes on travel tickets. By Saturday night, nearly all the major U.S. airlines had raised fares to offset taxes that expired the night before. That means instead of passing along the savings, the airlines are pocketing the money while customers pay the same amount as before. American, United, Continental, Delta, US Airways, Southwest, AirTran and JetBlue all raised fares, although details sometimes differed. Most of the increases were around 7.5 percent. For consumers who wanted to shop around, only a few airlines were still passing the tax break on to passengers Saturday night, including Virgin America, Frontier Airlines and Alaska Airlines. The expiring taxes can total $25 or more on a typical $300 round-trip ticket. They died after midnight Friday night when Congress failed to pass legislation to keep the Federal Aviation Administration running. 4 | SEATTLE

John Shalikashvili, the first foreign-born chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, who counseled President Bill Clinton on the use of troops in Bosnia and other trouble spots, has died, the Army said in a statement. He was 75. Shalikashvili died Saturday morning at Madigan Army Medical Center in Washington state following complications from a stroke suffered on August 2004 that paralyzed his left side. President Barack Obama said Saturday that the United States lost a “genuine soldier-statesman,” adding in a statement that Shalikashvili’s “extraordinary life represented the promise of America and the limitless possibilities that are open to those who choose to serve it.”

Lawrence school district leaders don’t intend to boost property-tax rates to finance district operations and projects for the coming school year. At least that’s the plan. Monday night, Lawrence school board members are scheduled to set maximum levels for a package of property-tax rates to finance the district’s budget for 2011-12. Going into the meeting, the district envisions a combined maximum levy

of 60.4 mills, which would be an increase of 0.734 of a mill, or SCHOOLS 1 . 3 percent, from the current rate. With a mill equal to $1 of tax for every $1,000 of assessed valuation — and taking into account the state’s $20,000 homestead exemption — the owner of a $100,000 home in the district would be expected to pay $648.60 in property taxes for schools next year,

which would be an increase of $8.67. Board members caution that the proposed maximum rate is just that, a proposed maximum, and likely would be reduced during the next couple of weeks. Monday’s meeting is an opportunity for board members to establish the highest tax rate it could charge, while the budget’s formal public hearing — set for 6:30 p.m. Aug. 8 — will give them an opportunity to bring the rate back down.

Byers “We got it.” Monday’s meeting begins at 7 p.m. at district headquarters, 110 McDonald Drive. The bulk of the district’s tax rates produce revenues that board members have little or no control over.

While a third of the taxes would go toward the district’s local option budget — which is, as the name suggests, optional — district officials have no plans to cut those revenues, given the ongoing cuts in operational funds made at the state level. That leaves one fund with room to maneuver: the district’s capital outlay fund, used to finance renovations and major repairs in schools, district buildings and other physical assets. As proposed, the district’s fund would carry a maximum levy of 8 mills, or enough to generate about $6.4 million for the coming year. Mark Bradford, board president, said the levy likely could be decreased to about 6 mills, where it’s been for each of the past two years. “I think we can still maintain what we need for capital improvements by maintaining our current mill levy,” Bradford said. “We can pretty much stay just where it’s at.” The district still has plenty

of work to do, he said. A list of projects circulated last year outlined an estimated $8.8 million in needed renovations, equipment upgrades, roof replacements, parking lot repavings and other jobs. Some of those projects are under contract now, but the list promises to continue expanding as buildings continue to age, said Tom Bracciano, the district’s division director for facilities and maintenance. “There’s not enough money to do everything we need to do,” Bracciano said. A volunteer working group is poised to start deliberations next month on recommendations for consolidating six elementary schools into either three or four within the next several years. The group’s work follows that from a volunteer task force, which in February outlined needed upgrades in district elementary schools.

The board already has offered to boost pay by a

total of $1 , 250 for each licensed educator for next year, using more than $1.1 million from savings; educators who attain additional education also could make more. Board members also intend to offer pay increases to other district employees, but detailed discussions have not yet started.

with participants enjoying the in-state rivalry spurred by the beginning and end locations. The Kawnivore race, named for the river on which it takes place, was a substitute for the MR340, a longer race that has run the course of the Missouri River since 2006. Mansker said the change in locale was due to dangerously high river levels in the neighboring state. “The MR340 has really put the Midwest on the map,” Mansker said. “Rivers are great resources for tourism


BRIEFLY Downtown road work may cause delays

Motorists should expect traffic delays near downtown Lawrence next week. Crews with the Kansas Department of Transportation will begin resurfacing the downtown Kansas River bridges Monday. The project will limit the bridges to one lane of traffic in each direction. City Hall officials expect the project to last about 60 days. On Tuesday, work will begin work to patch and repave Sixth Street between Kentucky and Missouri streets. Crews will begin milling the old concrete off the street at 2 a.m. Tuesday. Crews are expected to start repaving the street later in the week, although the exact date won’t be known until it is determined how much patch work must be completed. During the repaving project, one lane of traffic will remain — Schools reporter Mark Fagan can be open in each direction. Some reached at 832-7188.

Feds allege conflict of interest in park hire TOPEKA (AP) — A federal investigation has found conflicts of interest stemming from the hiring of a named plaintiff in Brown v. Board of Education to lead a National Park site that tells the story of the civil rights movement, including the landmark school desegregation case. The Topeka Capital-Journal reported that the concerns stemmed from Cheryl Brown Henderson’s role with the Brown Foundation for Educational Equity, Excellence and Research, which she founded. It is located in the same building as the Brown v. Board of Education National Historic Site. A report posted Friday to the website of the Department of Interior-Office of the Inspector General said the investigation found that Brown Henderson continued to participate in foundation activities after becoming superintendent of the National Park site despite a recusal agreement that barred her from doing so. The foundation receives $300,000 in annual funding from the National Park Service.

ANALYZE THIS When you’re ready to make an offer on your dream home, will you gaze into a crystal ball for mysterious guidance to determine the magical price that the sellers will accept? Oh, if only it were that easy! There are a number of factors to consider when formulating your offer, but one of the most important tools is the Comparative Market Analysis (CMA) prepared by your real estate agent. The CMA takes the characteristics of your house (number of rooms, square footage, age, location, etc.) and compares it to similar listings in the area. You’ll see the prices of properties that are currently for sale, have recently sold, or have expired without selling. Current listing prices are irrelevant,

but pay attention to the prices at which properties SOLD, because that’s what buyers were willing to pay. Throw out the highest and lowest prices in the range and figure an average sales price for the remaining homes. Your agent will help you determine how those “average” homes compare to the one you want, so that you can adjust your offer accordingly. Be sure to note how recently those sales took place, too, because sales from six months ago are probably no longer relevant or useful for your decision. Your agent will help interpret the information so that you can make a fair offer likely to be accepted.

LAWRENCE Kansas drought also affects wildlife WICHITA — The drought that has hit sections of Kansas this year has also affected wildlife that relies on rivers, streams and rain to survive. “It’s too dry for everything from the little things to the big things, which eat the little things,” said Don Distler, a biologist who manages Wichita State University’s biology field station along the Ninnescah River in south-central Kansas. “The whole food chain is in sort of an ‘on-hold’ position,” Distler told The Wichita Eagle. Because of the drought, creatures living near the river have moved, died or gone into a type of hibernation in the soil, reducing some populations of birds, insects and mammals by anywhere from 50 to 80 percent, he said. “Everything is affected,” Distler said. The Wichita USGS field office monitors 58 check points on area rivers. Points on the Little Arkansas at Alta Mills and at Highway 50 near Halstead, both north of Wichita, went dry recently, with only water in isolated pools. “If the heat stays on, eventually the rest on downstream could go dry also,” said Michael Holt, lead hydrologic technician. The Ninnescah River, which flows into Cheney Reservoir, is at its eighth lowest level since the U.S. Geological Survey set up a gauge on the river near Peck in 1938. Hydrologist Brian Loving said the river is losing enough water that it could set a record.

LAW ENFORCEMENT REPORT • The cause of an explosion that engulfed a boat on Perry Lake and injured one person Saturday afternoon is still under investigation. According to a media release from the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism, the incident occurred shortly before 1:30 p.m. when five people aboard a 21-foot boat experienced some mechanical problems while pulling away from the dock. An explosion occurred, and attempts by the vehicle’s owner and someone on shore to extinguish the flames were unsuccessful. Rock Creek Fire District and Rural Fire District personnel extinguished the fire and treated a 25-year-old Topeka man for injuries. The man was later transported by ambulance to a Topeka-area hospital. Several area agencies, including Jefferson County Emergency Management and the United

6. Shared one full-time faculty position with her husband for three years when they first came to KU so they could work together. Anthony-Twarog said Deanell Reece Tacha, who was then working as vice chancellor for academic affairs, was instrumental in making that situation work, and helped to push for similar arrangements when they worked out for everyone. 7. Gave birth to her second child, Nathaniel, while on sabbatical in Chile at a national observatory. The child was delivered using a surgical procedure, and her husband wasn’t allowed to be with her. “Medicine is very good there,” she said. “If you can afford it.” 8. Lent her name to an asteroid, an honor bestowed upon her by the Northeast Kansas Amateur Astronomer’s League. That group received the parts of an old telescope that used to sit atop Lindley Hall, AnthonyTwarog said. She has also delivered a number of lectures and other programs for the group. “It’s a very well-behaved asteroid,” she said, and one that isn’t going to come careening into Earth anytime soon. 9. Gave birth to one other son, Anthony. Neither of her sons followed in her parents’ footsteps, she said. Anthony is studying the brain and cognitive science at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and Nathaniel is studying screenwriting at New York University. 10. Volunteers at LINK, the Lawrence Interdenominational Nutrition Kitchen, and serves a hot meal to those who need it four times a week. “I like the fellowship of the people doing it,” she said. 11. Catered the wedding of a former student. “She didn’t have parents and was going to have a bag of chips,” Anthony-Twarog said. “We said no.”

GIVING BIRTH TO ONE OF HER CHILDREN IN CHILE is among 16 interesting things Kansas University astronomy professor Barbara Anthony-Twarog has done in her life. Anthony-Twarog was photographed Friday at her KU office. She got a few job offers after that, she remembered, but said her full-time job kept her busy enough. 12. Placed a focus on teaching, enough so to earn her a Kemper Award. Her greatest rewards in teaching, she said, come from the B students who come back years later and talk to her after rarely speaking to her in class or during office hours. “If you had any role in that confidence or success, you feel extremely gratified,” she said. 13. Conducts research on light filters for telescopes and helped apply technology now used for receivers in cellphones to telescope filters. Some of the technology she helped develop is now in use in the Hubble Space Telescope.


14. Called Edwin Hubble, for whom the space telescope is named, a “revolving bastard” in class once, to mean he was a bastard from any angle you looked at him. It wasn’t her expression, she was quick to point out, but it served to point out he was a good scientist, but not necessarily a very friendly man. 15. Regrets that she wasn’t able to articulate more research in the department, though she’s proud of the research she’s done. She said some time that other people may have devoted to research was sacrificed as a conse-

quence of keeping some focus on family life in addition to focusing attention on her teaching. 16. Watched the Atlantis space shuttle launch live recently on television, marking an end to NASA’s shuttle program. “This has been a lot of my remembered life,” she said of manned space flight. “It’d be nice to be around long enough to see something new.” — Higher education reporter Andy Hyland can be reached at 832-6388.

Troubled singer Amy Winehouse dead at 27 By Jill Lawless Associated Press Writer

L O N D O N — Few artists summed up their own career in a single song — a single line — as well as Amy Winehouse. “They tried to make me go to rehab,� she sang on her world-conquering 2006 single, “Rehab.� “I said, ‘No, no no.�’ Occasionally, she said yes, but to no avail: Repeated stints in hospitals and clinics couldn’t stop alcohol and drugs scuttling the career of a singer whose distinctive voice, rich mix of influences and heart-on-her sleeve sensibility seemed to promise great things. In her short lifetime, Winehouse too often made headlines because of drug and alcohol abuse, eating disorders, destructive relationships and abortive performances. But it’s her small but

powerful body of recorded music that will be her legacy. The singer was found dead Saturday at age 27 by ambulance crews called to her home in north London’s Camden area, a youth-culture mecca known for its music scene, its pubs — and the availability of illegal drugs. The London Ambulance Service said Winehouse had died before crews arrived at the house in leafy Camden Square. The cause of death was not immediately known. The singer’s body was taken from her home by private ambulance to a London mortuary where postmortem examinations were to be carried out either today or Monday. Police said in a statement no arrests have been made in connection with her death. It was not a complete surprise, but the news was still a huge shock for millions

Lawrence music benefit planned for Reading tornado victims By Chris Hong

An EF3 tornado is the thirdhighest in terms of intensity, consisting of winds up to 165 mph. On May 21, one crashed through the small community of Reading, 50 miles southwest of Lawrence, destroying more than 90 percent of the town, according to resident Melanie DicksPritchard. The city of Reading qualified for FEMA aid, which will help repair the damaged water tower and other property. But residential damage did not amount to $3 million, so none of the city’s 210 residents will receive any FEMA assistance. When Lawrence resident Manuel Rodriguez heard about the damage, he wanted to help in the way he knew best: with his music. He was already looking to get his band, La Raza, back together after a yearlong hiatus. He thought a benefit show would be the perfect opportunity. “If we’re gonna do this, we might as well do this for

BENEFIT CONCERT What: Music by La Raza and others to raise funds for Reading tornado victims When: 5 p.m.-11:30 p.m. Saturday Where: Knights of Columbus Hall, 2206 E. 23rd St. a good cause,� Rodriguez said. Rodriguez got in contact with Dicks-Pritchard through a family connection, and, with the help of some friends, he enlisted seven bands to play at the show. The concert will take place from 5 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. Saturday at the Knights of Columbus Hall, 2206 E. 23rd St., and will feature rock, bluegrass and country acts. Food and drinks will also be sold at the event. All proceeds will go to the Reading Community Development Fund. Donations can be made to the fund through a nonprofit organization, Emporia Community Foundation, Box 1337, Emporia, KS 66801-1337.

around the world. The size of Winehouse’s appeal was reflected in the extraordinary range of people Winehouse paying tribute as they heard the news, from Demi Moore — who tweeted “Truly sad news ... May her troubled soul find peace� — to chef Jamie Oliver, who wrote “such a waste, raw talent� on the social networking site. Rolling Stone Ronnie Wood said he was dedicating Saturday’s reunion performance of his band The Faces to Winehouse. “It’s a very sad loss of a very good friend I spent many great times with,� he said. Winehouse was something rare in an increasingly homogenized music business: an outsized personality

and an unclassifiable talent. She shot to fame with the album “Back to Black,� whose blend of jazz, soul, rock and classic pop was a global hit. It won five Grammys and made Winehouse — with her black beehive hairdo and old-fashioned sailor tattoos — one of music’s most recognizable stars. “I didn’t go out looking to be famous,� Winehouse told the Associated Press when the album was released. “I’m just a musician.� But in the end, the music was overshadowed by fame, and by Winehouse’s demons. Tabloids lapped up the erratic stage appearances, drunken fights, stints in hospital and rehab clinics. Performances became shambling, stumbling train wrecks, watched around the world on the Internet. Last month, Winehouse canceled her European comeback tour after she

swayed and slurred her way through barely recognizable songs in her first show in the Serbian capital of Belgrade. Booed and jeered off stage, she flew home and her management said she would take time off to recover. Fans who had kept the faith waited in vain for a followup to “Back to Black.� Born in 1983 to taxi driver Mitch Winehouse and his pharmacist wife Janis, Winehouse grew up in the north London suburbs, and was set on a showbiz career from an early age. When she was 10, she and a friend formed a rap group, Sweet ’n’ Sour — Winehouse was Sour — that she later described as “the little white Jewish Salt ’n’ Pepa.� She attended the Sylvia Young Theatre School, later went to the Brit School, a performing arts academy, and was originally signed to “Pop Idol� svengali Simon Fuller’s 19 Management.

BRIEFLY Topeka water mains break in heat TOPEKA (AP) — Water main breaks are not just a winter event in Topeka. Recent spells of dry, hot weather have city crews out frequently to repair broken lines and restore service. Topeka city spokesman Dave Bevens told The Topeka Capital-Journal that the city was on pace to have between 550 and 600 water main breaks in 2011. A typical year would produce roughly 400 breaks in the city. “We’ve had a lot this year because of the heat and the cold,� he said. “We’re trending a little higher than normal.� Bevens said dry ground has caused shifting in the soil, making pipes susceptible to breaking. The National Weather Service said Topeka had received only 1.19 inches of rain in July, about half of normal. Kyle Poage, a meteorologist with the NWS in Topeka, said the last measurable precipitation in Topeka was July 12 when Philip Billard Municipal Airport received .30 of an inch of rain.

LAWRENCE JOURNAL-WORLD ● ● Sunday, July 24, 2011


Retail options New government restrictions aren’t the best choice for promoting downtown retail, but, if a turnaround isn’t near, they could be on the table.


embers of the public aren’t alone in being concerned about downtown Lawrence becoming too much of an entertainment district at the expense of its retail roots. Four prominent downtown property owners came to the Journal-World last week to discuss a host of downtown issues. All four — landlords Doug Compton and George Paley, property and restaurant owner Bob Schumm and Weaver’s executive Earl Reineman — expressed concern about the mix of businesses in the downtown. It is encouraging that individuals who have invested heavily in downtown over a long period of time see the need to keep a strong retail presence in the area. Retailers help make the downtown a more diverse and interesting place to be. Several members of the group said they believe downtown is either close to or has reached a saturation point for restaurants. They expect the development of restaurants and entertainment venues to slow in the near future. The public hasn’t yet seen that trend. Two new Mexican restaurants currently are under development in downtown, and, in the not too distant past, the downtown lost a drug store and a greeting card shop to restaurant uses. A longer list of restaurants replacing retailers easily could be developed. Surprisingly, everyone in the group also acknowledged that there may be a day that Lawrence City Hall has to take some action to try to protect downtown’s retail foundation. What effective action the city could take would require a significant amount of discussion, but last week’s gathering brought up the possibility of greater regulation of drinking establishment licenses in downtown. The city already requires downtown businesses to have a significant amount of food sales before they can receive a drinking establishment license. That has stopped the district from adding more bar-only establishments. That concept could be expanded, members of the group noted. Most restaurants entering the downtown want the ability to serve alcohol. Compton said he is familiar with several communities that essentially require any new business wanting a drinking establishment license to purchase a license from an existing license holder. That effectively limits how many drinking establishments an area can have. None of the group members last week strongly endorsed such a move for Lawrence. That’s good. It would be far preferable for the market to make the necessary adjustments. When city government starts trying to manage a market, the potential for unintended consequences is great. But group members also didn’t rule out the idea. In a way, that’s good, too. It shows that downtown leaders recognize the seriousness of keeping our retail base strong. If downtown loses its critical mass of retailers, it will be extremely difficult to regain that mass in the future. What will follow will be a downtown transformation that many residents won’t enjoy watching. That transformation may produce more places to eat and drink — for a while, anyway — but downtown will not be a more fun place. As the downtown becomes more one-dimensional, property values will fall, behavior problems will rise, and downtown’s quaintness will be an attribute we talk about in the past tense. There are still more questions than answers when it comes to providing Downtown Lawrence a retail boost. It appears the stage is set to have a good conversation.

Obama debt defeat would hasten change WASHINGTON — The tea party, the most welcome political development since the Goldwater insurgency in 1964, lacks only the patience necessary when America lacks the consensus required to propel fundamental change through our constitutional system of checks and balances. If Washington’s trajectory could be turned as quickly as tea partyers wish — while conservatives control only one-half of one of the two political branches — their movement would not be as necessary as it is. Fortunately, not much patience is required. The Goldwater impulse took 16 years to reach fruition in the election of Ronald Reagan. The tea party can succeed in 16 months by helping elect a president who will not veto necessary reforms. To achieve that, however, tea partyers must not help the incumbent achieve his objectives in the debt-ceiling dispute. One of those is to strike a splashy bargain involving big — but hypothetical and nonbinding — numbers. This would enable President Obama to run away from his record and run as a debtreducing centrist. Another Obama objective is tax increases that shatter Republican unity and dampen the tea party’s electionturning intensity. Because he probably can achieve neither, he might want market chaos in coming days so Republicans henceforth can be cast as complicit in the wretched recovery that is his administration’s ugly signature. Mitch McConnell’s proposal would require Obama to make three requests for additional

debt-ceiling increases. Each time he would be required to recommend commensurate spending reductions. Concerning them, Congress would, of course, retain its constitutional power to do what it wishes. Obama could muster sufficient Democratic votes (onethird plus one, in one house) to sustain his veto of Congress’ disapproval of his requests. But this would not enhance presidential power. Rather, McConnell’s proposal would put a harness on the president, tightly confining him within a one-time process. Congressional primacy would be further enhanced by McConnell’s proposed special congressional committee. It would not be another commission; it would have no adminis-

tration members or other outsiders. Its proposals would be unamendable, and would be voted on this year. Thanks largely to the tea party, today, more than at any time since Reagan’s arrival 30 years ago, Washington debate is conducted in conservatism’s vocabulary of government retrenchment. The debt-ceiling vote, an action-forcing mechanism of limited utility, has at least demonstrated that Obama is, strictly speaking, unbelievable. Five months ago he submitted a budget that would have accelerated indebtedness, and that the Democratic-controlled Senate rejected in May, 97-0. Just three months ago he was demanding a “clean” increase in the debt ceiling, containing nothing to slow the spending carousel. Now he calls for “the largest possible” debt-reduction deal. Today, he says “if you look at the numbers, then Medicare in particular will run out of money and we will not be able to sustain that program no matter how much taxes go up.” Last year he advertised Obamacare as a sufficient reform of health care. He denounces Republicans as uncompromising regarding tax increases, but vows “I will not accept” a deal that does not increase taxes. Obama vaguely promises to “look at” savings from entitlements because “we need to find trillions in savings over the next decade.” But when McConnell learned that negotiations chaired by Vice President Joe Biden had identified a risible $2 billion in 2012 discretionary spending cuts

— a sum equal to a rounding error on the GM bailout — McConnell concluded that Obama’s frugality pantomime required a response that will define the 2012 election choice. Obama’s rhetorical floundering is the sound of a bewildered politician trying to be heard over the long, withdrawing roar of ebbing faith in a failing model of governance. From Greece to California, with manifestations in Italy, Spain, Portugal, Ireland, Illinois and elsewhere, this model is collapsing. Entangled economic and demographic forces are refuting the practice of ever-bigger government financed by an ever-smaller tax base and by imposing huge costs on voiceless future generations. Richard Miniter, a Forbes columnist, is right: “Obama is not the new FDR, but the new Gorbachev.” Beneath the tattered, fading banner of reactionary liberalism, Obama struggles to sustain a doomed system. Democrats’ dependency agenda — swelling the ranks of government employees, multiplying government-subsidized industries, enveloping ever-more individuals in the entitlement culture — is buckling under an intractable contradiction: It is incompatible with economic growth sufficient to create enough wealth to feed the multiplying tax eaters. Events are validating the tea partyers’ arguments. Time is on their side — but not on America’s, unless the impediment to reform is removed in 16 months. — George Will is a columnist for Washington Post Writers Group.

Fox not a news organization is.

A few words on what Fox News

The question has, of course, been debated forever. Fox says it is, as the name would suggest, a news network. Its critics say it is actually the propaganda arm of the Republican Party and that its highest loyalty is not to accuracy, fairness or other journalistic values but to the furtherance of the party line. Not that any sentient life form should need the help, but events have recently arranged themselves such as to make painfully obvious which view is truth and which is tripe. As it happens, one of the biggest news stories of the past few weeks has been the phone hacking scandal that now ensnares media baron Rupert Murdoch. For those who somehow missed it, it involves revelations that reporters at Murdoch’s News of the World British tabloid routinely paid police sources for information and hacked into people’s cell phones, including that of a murdered 13-year-old girl. That’s led to the shutdown of the 168-year-old newspaper, a spate of resignations and arrests, hearings in Parliament, rumored hearings in Congress and criminal investigations here and in the UK. This story is a gift from the news gods, and any news organization worthy of the name would jump on it like a trampoline. Most have. Fox has not. The Pew Research Center’s Project for Excellence in Journalism just surveyed reportage of the story in two time frames: July 6-8

Leonard Pitt Jr.

It is the nation’s leading manufacturer of false outrage and fake fury — War on Christmas! War on Christmas! — the top supplier of bogeymen for those who need to feel terrorized in order to feel alive.” and 11-15. In that period, according to Pew, CNN devoted almost 170 minutes to the story, MSNBC about 145. Fox? About 30. That bears repeating: One of the biggest stories of the summer gets, over the course of six days, a half-hour of attention from Fox “News.” Now, let us be fair and balanced here. Fox is owned by Murdoch, and the last thing any news organization wants is to be in the awkward position of reporting on itself. To have to air that which might embarrass or damage colleagues or bosses is the definition of a no-win situation, especially since there will always be doubts, from within and without, about

your ability to do so fairly. But when professionalism demands, this is what you do. When CBS News’ report on President George W. Bush’s service in the Texas Air National Guard turned out not to be credible, CBS reported it. When Jayson Blair hoodwinked and humiliated the New York Times, the New York Times reported it. When NPR was mortified by a deceptively edited hidden camera sting, NPR reported it. Fox’s failure to report — and allow viewers to decide — speaks volumes and offers definitive answer to the question of what Fox is. It is the nation’s leading manufacturer of false outrage and fake fury — War on Christmas! War on Christmas! — the top supplier of bogeymen for those who need to feel terrorized in order to feel alive. It is America’s No. 1 distributor of misinformation — Hide Nana! The death panels are coming! — a warehouse of conspiracy theories, junk history and dubious “facts” given credit by virtually no one who does not watch Fox. It is a noisemaker, a box of cacophony from which reason will seldom emerge unscathed. And it is a bovine excreta machine. But a news organization? No. That is a designation you have to earn. Step 1: Report the news. — Leonard Pitts Jr. is a columnist for the Miami Herald.


From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for July 24, 1911: YEARS "'Tug' Wilson's AGO joy ride of last night IN 1911 had the effect of landing him in the city holdover all night. Today he was turned over to the county authorities and will have to answer the charge of extreme cruelty. Wilson is said to have taken the horse and wagon belonging to F. Herrington from where he was hitched in front of the Methodist church. Mr. Herrington notified the police of the theft. Almost at the same time came a call from Haskell Institute that there was a man driving a horse around the grounds out there and causing considerable disturbance. … Wilson is said to have been drunk when he took the horse and this morning after he had sobered up he did not remember what he had done. “ — Compiled by Sarah St. John

Golfers approve of Bend About three months ago, newly named Eagle Bend Golf Course superintendent Darin “Lumpy” Pearson hit the links with the idea of transforming Lawrence’s city-owned public course from a place locals dealt with to one people drove miles to enjoy. Through 90 days, the feedback on Pearson’s effort was outstanding. Those who worked at Eagle Bend said the course was in the best shape they’d ever seen. Those who played it regularly began to notice — and like — the changes immediately. Saturday, those points of view picked up a heavy dose of credibility from the dozens of golfers who poured off the course after their opening rounds at the Lawrence Amateur Golf Association’s city tournament. “The course looks beautiful,” said Doug Wilson, of Lawrence, who plays most often at Alvamar. “The greens were in the best shape I’ve ever seen them, and you can tell that they’re really trying to define the tee boxes and the rest of the course with nice mowing. It’s definitely some place I’d enjoy playing more.” One by one, other competitors offered up similar remarks. “It just makes it a much more enjoyable tournament when you’re playing on a well-caredfor golf course,” said Galen Smith, also of Lawrence. “Everybody knows city budgets. It’s tough. So for them to have the course looking this good in the middle of the summer is nice.” Words such as those brought smiles to the faces of the Eagle Bend employees, especially head pro John Morris. “It’s great,” said Morris, in his 11th year. “Everybody that came in just kept saying, ‘Hey, the course looks great.’ When people are saying that with this heat, what’s that tell you?” Funny Morris mentioned heat. Other than Eagle Bend’s hot new look, the sweltering summer temperatures were the most popular topic of conversation Saturday. As temperatures rose above the 100-degree mark yet again and the heat index soared to almost 120 degrees at some spots on the course, local golfers did all they could to stay cool. “Just the standard stuff, really,” Michael Rack said. “Drink lots of water and stay hydrated.” Added Tom Rainbolt: “We’re used to it by now. We’ve been golfing for the past couple of weeks in this stuff.” While most golfers wore sun visors, upped their water intake and sought out shade whenever possible, course officials made the rounds to ensure everyone was OK and all the water jugs were full. While some talked selfpreservation and others about the beauty of the course, one man had the vision to blend the two topics. “We think it’s bad on us out there,” said Dennis Gisel, who fired a 74. “But the golf course is under attack.” Asked if Pearson’s upgrades had made the course more difficult, Gisel was honest. “Not really,” he said. “It just looks better.” That was the idea in the first place, and now, with a big thumbs-up from some of the city’s best golfers, Eagle Bend seems poised for big things in the future. The golfers themselves, many of whom promised they’d be back after getting a firsthand look at the Bend’s facelift, get to do it all over again today at Lawrence Country Club. The final round begins at 9 a.m.

SPENCER SCOTT CHIPS ONTO THE GREEN during the Lawrence Amateur Golf Association city tournament on Saturday at Eagle Bend. Scott shot a 76, six strokes behind open championship-flight leader Spencer Wilson, in the first round.

Wilson shrugs off 18th ownage for lead By Clark Goble Journal-World Sports Writer

Spencer Wilson was a bit nervous when he stepped onto the teebox on No. 18 at Eagle Bend during the Lawrence Amateur Golf Association city tournament. Not because he was struggling to that point. He played the first 17 holes in 1-under par. He was nervous because the last three times he played No. 18 at Eagle Bend in a tournament, he made three 7s. That’s right — three triple bogeys. “Eighteen has owned me,” Wilson said. Wilson put aside his jitters, made his sixth birdie of the round

and came into the clubhouse with the satisfying final birdie at the a 2-under 70 and the lead in the hole where things went so wrong open championship-flight field. recently.

His 7-iron approach shot on the 160-yard par-3 soared right toward the flag, took a couple small hops and trickled into the bottom of the cup. Schmidt graduated from Free State High and will be a sophomore on the golf team at Coffeyville Community College this fall. It was his first hole-in-one. “Now I can say that I’ve gotten a

Giants 4, Brewers 2 SAN FRANCISCO — Ryan Vogelsong labored through five innings to regain the National League’s best ERA, five relievers finished with four scoreless innings, and San Francisco beat Milwaukee. Vogelsong (8-1) allowed two runs on seven hits in one of his least-spectacular outings of the season, finding yet another way to win. The journeyman All-Star notched enough innings for his 2.10 ERA to qualify for the lowest in the league again. Nate Schierholtz drove in two runs, and Aubrey Huff delivered the go-ahead sacrifice fly in the fifth. Brian Wilson pitched the ninth for his 30th save. Milwaukee

BRIEFLY CYCLING Evans eyes first Aussie Tour win GRENOBLE, FRANCE — Silencing his doubters once and for all, Cadel Evans will now be wearing the prized Tour de France leader’s yellow jersey on the Champs-Elysees. The two-time runner-up locked up Australia’s first victory in cycling’s greatest race Saturday by overcoming Luxembourg’s Andy Schleck in the final time trial. The suspense-filled race against the clock, with just seconds separating the two racers, culminated one of the most exciting Tours in recent memory after three weeks marked by crashes, climbing agony and bone-chilling rains. Although there is one more stage today, Evans has the victory sealed.

GOLF Three tied at Senior British WALTON ON THE HILL, ENGLAND — Mark Calcavecchia surrendered a three-shot cushion to end the third round of the Senior British Open on Saturday tied for the lead with fellow American Russ Cochran and South Africa’s David Frost. Calcavecchia, the co-leader after the first and second rounds at Walton Heath, was in cruise control at 10 under with six holes remaining before imploding when his accuracy off the tee deserted him.

Smell, Sparks Amateur finalists J-W Staff Reports

L E A W O O D — Top-seeded Kyle Smell and No. 3 seed Hunter Sparks will play in the 36-hole championship match of the Kansas Amateur today. Smell, a Kansas State University golfer, beat Steve Groom of Raytown, Mo., 3and-1, in Saturday’s matchplay quarterfinals, then edged Jeffrey Lee of Overland Park, 2-and-1, in the semifinals. Sparks, a Wichita State golfer, beat two-time Kansas Amateur champ Bryan Norton, of Mission Hills, 7-and-5 in the quarter f inals and edged Alex Higgs of Overland Park, 2-and-1, in the semis.

velously designed par-3 with a green wedged between the course boundary to the left and a pond on the right. I was delighted to walk away with par. No. 8: Another beast of a par-4. Out of bounds is certainly in play along the left side as the steeply pitched fairway is likely to jettison more than a few balls out of play. No. 9: I love this short, split-fairway par-4. In hindsight, I think the left fairway is the optimal path for most. It grants a much better angle of attack to a rock-hard green. No. 11: The back nine opens with six relatively easy holes. However, there is still plenty of trouble. This par-3 is a prime example. It’s the easiest hole on the course, but there’s water left. Yet, at only 161 yards from the tips, expect a lot of birdies. No. 12: This is the longest 500-yard hole I’ve ever seen. This slight dogleg right seems to climb back uphill forever, and two fairway bunkers really limit how a player can attack this hole. It will take three solid shots to reach this par-5 in regulation. No. 13: The next three holes are mundane par-4s, but it’s not unreasonable to

think the championship will be won and lost over this stretch. The last thing anyone wants is to have to make up ground over the final three. No. 16: This severe dogleg right may entice the long hitter to cut the corner, and the freak may even attempt to drive this green. But the champion will probably play down the middle of the fairway and leave himself an ultra-intimidating, downhill shot over water, to the green. It sounds hard, and it is. No. 18: This ribbon of a fairway is definitely the hardest to hit on the course. A miss left brings a pond and nasty fairway bunker into play, and right is no good either. This par-4 is short, though, so a drive in the short grass offers an opportunity to end the tournament with a birdie. I don’t know who will win the title with five-time defending champion Conrad Roberts not in the field, but whoever takes home the hardware will have earned it on an inscrutably fair golf course.

Tarczewski, who has been off-limits to media during the summer AAU season, is expected to choose between KU, Arizona and North Carolina sometime in August. “You love him (Tarczewski) because he can push people out of the lane, plays physical and is a back-to-the-basket guy all the way,” an unnamed major-college assistant coach told “The nice thing about recruiting a kid like that is that you don’t cross your fingers behind your back and tell him that he can play on the wing. He's not leaving the paint.”

When Martin Maina started Trigger Vibrations, a music event promotion company, his aim was to diversify the music scene. Maina came to Lawrence seven years ago to study at Kansas University. “I had an eight-to-five job, but the music bug bit hard,” he says. “When I got to Lawrence, I saw something missing in the music scene,” he adds. “You could get all the bluegrass you want. You could go out and see all the hip-hop you want. I decided to get into reggae.” Trigger Vibrations’ events have amassed an impressive following, and Maina has been able to attract top-shelf reggae acts to Kansas. Maina “I’ve grown very much in Lawrence,” says Maina, who hails from Nigeria. “I’ve learned a lot about music through the years. When I came to go to school in the United States, I had never heard bluegrass. I’ve come to appreciate it and see how music can blend across the lines.” Now he’s looking to expand his endeavors and diversify Lawrence further still. Last Friday, he hosted Afro Night at the Granada, the first of what he hopes will be an ongoing series of concerts/dance parties with an African theme. “It’s an idea that’s been brewing for a while,” he says. “This is really lively music that you don’t get to see very often in this neck of the woods.” Afro Night included performances by DJ Kim Barely Legal and DJ Stiga (Maina) and local bands Hearts of Darkness and SUNU, both of which rely heavily on African rhythms and instrumentation styles for their sound. Even though the theme of the evening was decidedly African, the

Retro cameras, apps produce dreamlike imagery By Mike Yoder

My wife and I recently went to see Claude Monet’s “Water Lilies” exhibit at the NelsonAtkins Museum of Art. The reunited triptych is on display through Aug. 7. Monet depicted his water garden in Giverny, France, as a near abstract surface of shifting light and color. The Impressionist master’s painting captures a feeling and experience more than a detailed document of his subject. If Monet had used a camera rather than a brush, he probably would have gone low-tech. I imagine him using a Diana or Holga instead of a Hasselblad to photograph his lilies. The Diana and Holga are cheap, plastic film cameras that produce muted, blurry and optically distorted images. The Hasselblad is an expensive, professional camera known for its precision and razor sharp images. Low-tech photography is popular, and I’ve noticed quite a few shutterbug friends, myself included, joining this retro trend. The company Lomography distributes an extensive collection of inexpensive film cameras and has a large international and cult-like fan base, all sharing a passion for creative and experimental film photography. Urban Outfitters, 1013 Mass., carries several shelves of plastic Lomo cameras, includ-

This fascination for less than technically perfect but creative imagery has made its way to digital photography, too. One product, the Dreamy Diana Lens, is a plastic lens that you can mount on your expensive DSLR and turn it into a digital toy camera. So while digital camera makers increase resolution and color accuracy, many shooters reach instead for fun tools that do the opposite, deemphasizing formal technique and high-fidelity. Now that most people carry a cell phone with a built-in camera, spontaneity and creativity trumps technical perfection. Face it, a cell phone is always with you. Camera apps for your phone like FxCamera, CameraBag, Hipstamatic and Retro Camera all offer filters and effects to mimic toy cameras, fisheye lenses and Polaroids, among others.

DURING a recent lotus blossom party, I did not have a camera with me to capture several photo opps. I used a favorite “retro” camera app on my iPhone to capture these adventurous rafters. The quality may not be equal to other cameras, but this low-tech approach provided an image that might be preferable. If you’re looking for a little inspiration or a way to bring more spontaneity and fun to your photography, try going retro. And keep in mind the

Cat’s potty habits may signal more than bad manners M

any of us cat owners have seen it before.

Fluffy steps into the litter box and does his thing. A few moments later, he returns to the litter box and goes again. He’s back there in another minute or two. Then you notice him straining outside the box. And then in the hallway. And on the kitchen floor. And on the entryway tiles. And in the bathtub. Aggravating to us, yes, but please don’t yell at Fluffy. He may be asking for help, and he may need it quickly. One of the hazards of cathood is feline urinary tract infections (FUTI), or worse, feline urologic syndrome (FUS) or feline lower urinary tract disease (FLUTD). The causes of these urinary tract infections are much the same as for humans: where urine exits the body isn’t one of the cleanest places. According to, various species of Staphylococcus are responsible for 9 percent of their infections, while E. coli bacteria account for a whopping 47 percent. Normally, the flow of urine is enough to flush bacteria out of the cat’s system. When defenses are down, however, or the cat is not getting enough liquids, these bacteria happily set up home in the bladder, or sometimes even further north, causing intense irritation and pain — that “burning” sensation — and so Fluffy feels the need to urinate over and over again. FUS and FLUTD are bit more complicated. Jeff Feinman, the veterinarian who has set up the Internet site, says that cats with feline cystitis — the bladder irritation that signals FUS and FLUTD — do not exhibit bacteria in their

Baker presenting ‘Urinetown’ BALDWIN CITY — Baker University and Music Theatre for Young People will present “Urinetown” at 2:30 p.m. July 31 at Rice Auditorium. Admission is $8 for people 13 and older, and $5 for senior citizens and children. Tickets will be available at the door. The performance concludes a weeklong Broadway at Baker camp, where students receive instruction in all aspects of musical theatre production, vocal music dance and drama from faculty members, musical theatre veterans and director Cary Danielson-Pandzik. “Urinetown” is an earnest tale of love, greed and revolution. The show is set in a town plagued by a 20-year drought, where water has become so scarce that private toilets have become unthinkable. At the mercy of a single dominating corporation who maintains a monopoly on the town’s public amenities, the destitute citizens must pay towering taxes and fines to carry out their most private and basic needs. Out of the mass of the pitiable, a hero rises to lead his fellow citizens against the tyrannical regime.

urine. In these cases, crystals or even small stones form in the bladder, causing an obstruction that Feinman says “prevents elimination of urine from the bladder. If the obstruction is not relieved within 48 hours, most cats will die from kidney failure and the retention of toxins that were not removed by the kidneys.” In these serious cases, cats suffer intense pain and may be passing blood and they need to be catheterized. Surgery may follow for large stones that can’t be either passed or broken up with medication. Certain cats will have a predisposition to these conditions. The Cat Health Guide site says that these conditions are seen more frequently in older cats, and only rarely in cats younger than one year. More commonly, vets see this problem in cats older than 10 years, in spayed females and, not surprisingly, in overweight felines or those with diabetes. In addition, Abyssinian cats tend to have this problem as well. The more serious FUS and FLUTD cases tend to be male cats, because they have a narrower urethra and so are more susceptible to having the crystals block the opening. Good cat owners will be on the lookout for changes in frequency of urination or in the places their cats suddenly start squatting. The hard part is getting a urine

sample to take to the vet. Usually the vet needs a clean sample to culture for bacteria or check for sediment, and this can mean entering the bladder with a needle to draw the sample out directly. For cases of blockage, your vet may insert a catheter and leave it in place for 24 hours or more until he or she can be sure no more crystals are forming. Antibiotics should do the trick for cases of bacterial infection, and often these are just isolated events that won’t necessarily recur. For FUS and FLUTD, where bacteria may not be present, vets recommend first and foremost an increase in water consumption and a decrease in minerals in the diet. One way to accomplish this is to take away dry food and add water to the cat’s canned food. Usually the hope is to increase the acidity of the urine to dissolve the crystals. A basic urinalysis will also tell your vet what kinds of medication are best for your cat’s specific problem. Unfortunately, once your cat experiences FUS or FLUTD, chances are high that you’ll be dealing with this again in the future. This is why many vets encourage not only long-term diet change, but environmental stability as well. Stress has been found to increase the alkalinity of urine, making formation of crystals more likely. In these cases, it’s best to keep your cat calm and don’t take him or her with you on trips or introduce new animals into your home. As with any medical situation, though, your vet needs to analyze your cat’s specific problems before recommending the best specific course of treatment. Unfortunately, some cases may even warrant surgery.

hop, R&B, soul, jazz, funk and rock ‘n’ roll. “It’s a fusion of African beats with American beats,” Maina says. “It’s the kind of music where when you come here to see a show you’re not getting off the dance floor.” “There’s going to be some mixing of everything,” says Sean Brannigan of Hearts of Darkness. “We’re gonna cut it up.” Brannigan’s band is heavily influenced by such West African international superstars as Fela Kutu and King Sunny Ade. But their sound also incorporates jazz and pop elements. “It’s like a different flavor in the mix,” Brannigan says. “We bring something else to the party.” SUNU, on the other hand, has a heavy funk sound that’s garnered a strong following locally. “When we play in Lawrence, we’ve been packing the house every time,” says band member Dylan Barrett. “We want to try to do this regularly,” Maina says of Afro Night. “We’d like to do it monthly, but it’ll probably be quarterly at first.”

— Martin Maina with Trigger Vibrations, Lawrence The plan is to bring in topname acts from across the country and from oversees. In fact, that was the plan for the first Afro Night. Maina had asked a band from Zimbabwe, the members of which he’s friends with, to come play, but they got caught up in immigration red tape. Maina decided to go on with the show and making it a showcase of local talent and a testament to the burgeoning afrobeat scene, which is growing in popularity all across the country. “It’s turning into a national trend,” says Barrett. “There are bands all over. It’s a budding scene.” Maina says he hopes his Afro Nights will enrich Lawrence’s culture. “I’m just trying to be diverse and get other bands mixed into the scene here, especially groups from Africa,” Maina says. “We try to get music people would love. “We can make this cultural and musical scene even bigger.”

with his publisher about a book on the subject, the publisher “suggested I do it in a historical context.” He found a kindred spirit in Eisenbach, a Columbia University professor, who created and hosted the History Channel program “The Beltway Unbuckled.” Flynt said their book is especially timely now, because with today’s partisan anger fighting for control of the nation’s agenda, “It’s a lot like it was during the Revolution” when the Hamilton-led Federalists waged heated private and public battles with the Jefferson-led Republicans. A primary topic of their disagreements? The role of the federal government in the nation’s banking system. During the early days of the country, the press played an active role going after politicians (the newspapers of the day generally were in the pocket of one side or the other), but after a while such unseemly gossip-mongering gave way to the press protecting presidents (and athletes, movie stars, etc.). Everyone in the White House press corps knew who was having affairs — they just kept quiet. These days, it’s again open season. But such behavior has been going on forever with power-

ful men — “They have huge egos and need to be fed by sexual conquest,” Flynt said — and voters would be silly to think it’s ever going to stop. Or that it should. “Americans need to adopt one simple rule,” the authors write. “Don’t trust anyone who dedicates his or her life to stomping out other people’s consensual sexual activities — it is pretty much guaranteed that lurking behind all the antisex zealotry are deepseated sexual issues.” That’s why former FBI director J. Edgar Hoover also gets his own chapter. Does it matter that Lincoln may have been gay, the book asks. “He was probably one of our best presidents,” Flynt said. And Eisenbach added that Eleanor Roosevelt “was not diminished by being a lesbian.” Hoover’s closeted homosexuality, however, led to a reign of terror on the sex lives of countless politicians — gay and straight. And President Buchanan, whom the book alleges had a 32-year affair with Alabama Sen. William Rufus King, “is one of the great villains of history,” according to Eisenbach. How could a president have a gay affair in the 1850s and it remain unreported?

Veteran writer Paul Theroux explores the nature, history of travel in latest book Kassie May, college student, Tonganoxie “’Smokin’ Seventeen’ by Janet Evanovich. It’s about Stephanie Plum, who’s a bounty hunter.”

Poet’s Showcase

“The Tao of Travel,” is a magical compendium of scribbling, thoughts, sidelong glances, poetic for- Theroux ays and compelling arguments concerning the metaphysical and physical nature of travel itself, the history of travel writing, along with exemplars of the greatest insights and observations of both modern and ancient travelers, each introduced by Theroux’s own marvelous “take” on travel and travel writing. The physical book itself is a marvel, consisting of a fauxgrainy-leather cover with an amazing little “strap” to hold the book closed, presumably making it suitable for the backpack. Its paper is onionskin, and the print is a classic type set off by superb illustrations, maps and italics. An excellent index refers the reader to numerous writers and their works. As a pastime it is unsurpassed; as a reference work it

will lead the reader to countless books both mainstream and recondite. There has been no book like it produced for the mass market that I can recall. Theroux’s avowed aim, stated explicitly in a lovely preface, is to show “in its approaches to travel, ways of living and thinking too.” Thus, the Tao, an ancient Chinese mystical “path” toward peace and freedom, becomes a metaphor for ways of undertaking both the spiritual and existential side of human life, which is to say, the “importance of elsewhere.” As Chekhov once said, “If you’re afraid of loneliness, don’t marry,” so too it might be said, if you’re afraid of loneliness, don’t undertake real travel. And so we confront the first Tao of travel: Leave home and travel alone — admonitions modern tourists won’t countenance, considering that one Hilton Hotel is much like another, down to the sheets and the food, which is also to say that most modern tourism consists of staying at home from thousands of miles away. I

know people who fly to the Caribbean in a jumbo jet and stay at a Holiday Inn, eat hamburgers and swim in the pool. The Tao of travel is divided into 27 discrete chapters with titles like “It is Solved By Walking,” “Everything is Edible Somewhere,” “Evocative Name, Disappointing Place,” “Dangerous, Happy, Alluring,” “Travel as Ordeal,” and even “Staying Home.” At regular intervals, the book launches into a section called “Travel Wisdom,” bits of philosophy from famous travelers like Henry Fielding, Robert Louis Stevenson, Freya Stark and Claude LeviStrauss, each of which is carefully chosen to illustrate some travel dynamic that has caught Theroux’s always perceptive eye. The travel narrative is the oldest in the world. Theroux himself has been at it for 50 years and has written some of our boldest, most idiosyncratic, keenly observed and ingenious books. From “The Old Patagonian Express” to “Dark Star Safari,” Theroux has walked the walk and followed the Path.

Aspiring Lawrence comedians flock to Joke Night By Michael Auchard Special to the Journal-World

For comedian Ed Parker, comedy is something alive and breathing. It’s not just something you watch on TV late at night — it’s something you actively participate in. Parker is the creator and host of Joke Night!, a monthly open mic night comedy show. Doors open for the event 8 tonight at the Jackpot Saloon, 943 Mass. Cover is $3. The show is generally held on the last Wednesday of each month, though there was a scheduling conflict this month. Parker says he enjoys making people laugh but also likes to watch the variety of other comedians with various levels of experience that show up for Joke Night! “A good part about it for me is that it’s something I enjoy performing myself,” Parker says, “and I get to watch all of these local and semi-local comedians who come to do the show. Sometimes, it’s their first time and they do a really good job or sometimes it’s someone who’s been doing it for a few years and they do a good job. I get to hang out with other comedians, and I get to watch a good comedy show.” Parker says he started Joke Night! late last year as a response to what he thought was an overabundance of music shows in downtown

JOKE NIGHT What: A monthly showcase for local comedians, hosted by Ed Parker. When: Tonight, but usually the last Wednesday night of every month, barring scheduling conflicts. 9 p.m. Where: The Jackpot Music Hall, 943 Mass. Price: $3 Lawrence. He thought there was a market for people who wanted to see other types of entertainment as well. “It’s something where there are a lot of people who are interested in seeing live comedy in general, and that’s something that is underrepresented in downtown Lawrence. Also, the only way for people to get really good at comedy is to get on stage a lot. At the same time, there’s definitely enough people interested in doing it and seeing it that we can support having this show.” Keeping the show fresh is also important to Parker, who says he has mixed Joke Night!’s format up in the past, inviting the audience to participate in the show. “We’ve had other things at the show, too,” he says. “Especially if there are fewer acts or if we have time. I’ve done things like playing games during the show. We had one

ED PARKER, a Lawrence comedian who hosts a show at the Jackpot Saloon, 943 Mass., opens each show with a flurry of jokes. where we did a ‘which is which’ kind of thing. I pulled a name out and asked if it was a professional wrestler or a contagious disease.” Brad Shanks, manager of the Jackpot, says the comedy show was a no-brainer to set up. He says the Jackpot’s goal is to provide a wide array of entertainment for people to come out and view. “We try to do as much different stuff as we can,” he says. “We have burlesque,

bands of all genres, we have a Super Nerd Night where people play video games, we have DJs — but the comedy night is great because you get a different crowd out. It’s people that spend a lot of time on their comedy but don’t have a spot in town to strut their stuff and see if they’ve got anything. There’s always a couple of gems who get up there and just blow people away.” Shanks says the show can

be a great experience for both new and experienced comedians. They can use it as a sounding board for their routine or as simply a chance to get up in front of people and act like a fool. “Typically, it’s just a lot of people who appreciate comedy and their friends are there to see them make an ass out of themselves or really show up. Usually everyone’s having a great time. There’s some funny stuff — a lot of

The Invisible Hand Gallery, 801 1/2 Mass. “End Of Days Parade” by Ben Strawn July 29 - Aug. 20 From the artist: “I like to paint the woods. I grew up in Hot Springs, Ark., and have the honor of once being lost in the woods and on a separate instance being trapped in a Briar Patch. I once stumbled into a mossy glade next to a stream in the woods somewhere behind my house and never found it again. Another time a deer walked up to me in the woods and stood about four feet from me until my dog chased him away. There is a new subdivision going in back there now. “I have painted my entire life but until the last five years I haven’t cared much for anything I’ve done. I actually think the paintings I’m doing now are beautiful. It’s a strange feeling.” 1109 Gallery, 1109 Mass. “Ar t in Three Dimensions” 3D artwork by area artists and a wonderful installation in the small gallery, “United Space: A Sallenbach/Dunlap Collaboration” Open until 9 p.m. for Final Friday Art Walks, guest speakers Jim Sallenbach and Debra Dunlap will give a talk from 6 p.m. until 7 p.m., and musicians Scott Tichenor and Bill Crayhan will perform from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Great artwork, food, fun and libations.

The Bourgeois Pig, 6 E. 9th Street “The Long and The Short,” new works by Molly Murphy From the artist: “This series of work looks at our manipulations of the physical world to suit our human compulsions. Placing memories of the natural world up against landscapes of human construction and memories of renaissance knowledge against specialization, these works ask questions about what the physical landscape will look like based on memory, patterns and predictions. “Understanding the natural world and ourselves requires abstract thought before coming to what may seem a very simple answer...” Teller’s, 746 Mass. “Dungeons and Dragons” by Geoff Benzing About the show: “Dungeons and Dragons” is a collection of pencil and ink drawings on matte board inspired from everyday life, role-playing games and the UFO phenomenon.

Lawrence Public Library, 707 Vt. “Animals And Stuff” by Dian Hauser and William Ottens Lower Level For this exhibit, the artists were invited to work on their own interpretations of “Animals and Stuff,” bringing to mind cabinets of curiosities, those mysterious Victorian collections of objects ... and lots of stuffed animals. There are no stuffed animals here — although there is a drawing of a plush rabbit — but the artists wanted to convey that sense of the inscrutable that comes when one ponders items from a distant era. We invite you to play along in exploring the idea of the enigmatic in these images of animals and stuff. Paintings by Kathleen Anderson Kathleen Anderson loves to paint in “happy colors,” whether it’s the medium of watercolor or oil. It’s her way of transforming the world around her and sharing it with others. The viewer should feel he or she can walk into the landscape painting, or smell the flowers, or stroll beside one of the lovely buildings on the Plaza.

US Bank Plaza, 900 Mass. Lawrence Busker Festival Preview Performance 7 p.m. - 9 p.m. Artists to perform include: Mooncalf the Magician, Tricks of Light and Jason Divad, fire juggler. The Lawrence Busker Festival will be Aug. 19-21 . You

MAKING QUITE A SPLASH! Kitchen backsplashes have evolved in recent years from vertical extensions of countertop material to design statements. They range in complexity from a horizontal spread of 3X6 subway tiles to galaxies of small multi colored glass tiles. Many backsplashes approach the status of high art with hand painted tiles that depict mural-inspired peasant scenes and other motifs.

good jokes and bad jokes. The important part is that there are jokes.” Blair Lobb has participated in several of the Joke Night! shows in the past. He says the Jackpot is a good location for the show and that there are usually diverse crowds. “The Jackpot’s good. It’s an established bar,” Lobb says. Lobb, who describes his comedy as simply, “dirty,” says he thinks shows like Joke Night! are important for Lawrence, because of their unique nature in a downtown primarily known for its rock music scene. “I would say Lawrence is such a music-oriented town and we’ve really been plugging at the comedy-show aspect for quite some time. It’s really hard to get a comedy show together without a mandolin on stage for some reason,” Lobb says. “We really need the support. We really enjoy entertaining Lawrence and we could use as much support as possible. It’s three bucks to get in, check out some comedy, have some drinks with some comedians. Comedy is never a bad thing.”

LYN WALTHER, co-owner of Strawberry Hill Christmas Tree Farm, is shown at the property on Highway 40 west of Lawrence. The Walther family has just finished one of the largest tasks of the farm — pruning each of their 5,000 trees.

Christmas trees take a lot of work in high summer T

he shape and beauty of next winter’s Christmas tree is probably far from your mind right now. Getting just the right look to a Scotch pine is high priority to Christmas tree farmers, though, even in the summer heat. Eric and Lyn Walther and their son Mitchell, who operate Strawberry Hill Christmas Tree Farm west of Lawrence, offer a look into the off-season of Christmas tree production. The Walthers have just finished one of the largest tasks of the farm — pruning each tree individually. With approximately 5,000 trees, pruning takes some time. “There’s a lot to shaping the trees,” Eric says. “The Scotch pine just doesn’t grow in a good traditional Christmas tree form.” Tree pruning is dependent on weather conditions and completion of other tasks. Trees cannot be pruned when they are wet from rain or dew because of the risk of spreading fungal disease from tree to tree. When the temperatures are

exceedingly high, like recent late afternoons, trees suffer additional stress. And there’s the mowing and equipment maintenance to work around. To top it off, trees must be pruned every year from planting to sale, typically a seven- to eight-year span. “This is the time of year when you’re just doing plain old sweaty, hard work,” Lyn says. “This is when we have to remember November and December, with the kids coming in and the families, the stories and the smiles. Some of the

families are on their third generation of coming to us now. I don’t know of any other types of farming operations that really get that pleasure.” The vision of families cutting down their trees on crisp snowy days before climbing onto the hayride is certainly a strong one. Besides the pruning, mowing, stump grinding and planting, Christmas trees are susceptible to a few common insect and disease pests. The tree farm has seen a number of insect problems since it opened in 1985, Eric says. “The last few years, we have really had problems with bagworms. In previous years, we’ve dealt with tortoise scale and white scale and tip moths,” he says. Tortoise scale and white scale are small insects that feed under a protective shell. Sometimes trees lose a branch or section of needles to diseases like brown spot, which the Walthers say is not worth trying to spray with a fungicide. “It’s a no-win situation. We just cut them down and burn

them when we see it,” Mitchell says. Despite the list of pests, the Scotch pine is the best species for Christmas tree production in Kansas. The other major diseases that affect Scotch pines — the deadly pine wilt and stressful tip blight — most commonly affect older trees. Ideally, Christmas trees are cut down before these diseases become a problem. Eric notes that the drought has been more of a problem than disease or insects on their farm. Between the years 2002 and 2005, the Walthers planted about 4,000 additional trees and lost nearly all of them in droughty conditions. Irrigation is not cost effective. Strawberry Hill Christmas Tree Farm has been able to withstand hard times that drove other Christmas tree growers out of business, though. Eric credits their success to participation in the Kansas Christmas Tree Growers’ Association, and to help they received from former

Douglas County Extension Director Earl Van Meter. Mitchell is currently serving as president of the association. Eric also notes that they try to work with the other local Christmas tree growers. If a customer is looking for an especially large Christmas tree, for example, they will refer the customer to Prairie Elf Christmas Trees, who typically have some larger specimens. A letter in my files dated 1986 indicates that there were 30 Christmas tree farms in Douglas County alone. Today, there are only four: Strawberry Hill Christmas Tree Farm, 794 Highway 40; Prairie Elf Christmas Trees, 765 E. 750 Road; Evening Star Pines, 9820 Evening Star Road, Eudora; and Green Forest, 292 N. 2100th Road, Lecompton. —Jennifer Smith is the Horticulture Extension Agent for K-State Research and Extension in Douglas County.

Hidden messages give old valuables unique cachet By Terry Kovel

Antiques are mysterious in many ways. Some, like an asparagus server, were made to do jobs that are no longer necessary. Some, like the Jenny Lind bed with spiral posts, are named for forgotten celebrities. An antique mechanical bank with a hunter aiming his rifle at a bear cub is more than a toy. It represents the day President Theodore Roosevelt refused to shoot a bear. But most intriguing are patterns that carry hidden meanings. In recent years, researchers have learned that some 19thcentury quilts included unique blocks that gave directions to those escaping slavery on the Underground Railroad. Hidden messages are not new. After the French Revolution in the late 1700s, it was not safe to side with the monarchy. But some members of the royal

family and their friends wanted to show their loyalty to the king. A design for Chinese export dishes based on an engraving published during the revolution shows an urn filled with weeping branches displayed in a circular medallion. Only a few realized that the urn was part of a message. The white space on each side of the base of the urn is shaped like silhouettes of King Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette. In the tree branches are profiles of the two royal children. The plates, with the pattern name “Urne Mysterieuse,” sell for thousands of dollars each today, but the hidden message usually has to be explained.


I found a big old automobile horn in a pile of junk. It has three long brass tubes attached to the base that’s

Cowles Syndicate Inc. Photo

LOOK for the hidden faces under the tree. This “Urne Mysterieuse” pattern plate, 9 5/8 inches in diameter, sold for $1,888 at a Brunk auction in Asheville, N.C., in 2009. marked “The Minerva Auto Horn, HHM Co., Pat. April 9th, 1912.” Please tell me something about it.


The base of your old automobile horn could be attached to the exhaust system of an old

car to produce a loud noise resembling the sound of a train’s steam engine horn. The level of sound could be adjusted by the driver. The April 9, 1912, patent for the horn (No. 1,022,564) was granted to Willard Pennock of Minerva, Ohio. Pennock apparently opened a manufacturing company in Minerva or assigned the patent to a manufacturer. Eventually, four different sizes and styles of the horn were made. They originally sold for $5 to $10. One like yours auctioned in 2005 for $140. Q: I have an old phonograph that has a metal plate that reads “The Pooley Grand Prix Eufonola, Manufactured by the Pooley Furniture Co. Inc., Philadelphia.” It has a crank turntable. The bottom doors open to reveal shelves for record storage. What is the age and value

of this phonograph? A: Pooley Furniture Co. was founded by James Barnum Pooley in 1892. The company made all sorts of furniture, including cabinets for phonographs and radios. Phonograph cabinets were made by several different manufacturers. An ad in a 1916 edition of Talking World Magazine listed Acme Cabinet Co. of New York City as the maker of the Eufonola disc player. The first 78-rpm records were made about 1900, but the speed at which a record turned (revolutions per minute) was not standardized until about 1930. The Pooley is not selling well today and usually sells for less than $100. Q: I’d like to know something about a silver-plated tea set I bought at an estate sale. It’s marked “Academy Silver on Cop-

per” on each piece. The mark is round like a stamp. A: Academy Silver was in business in New York City from 1951 to 1961. The company made silver-plated hollowware. ●

Great-grandson eats only fast food Dear Annie: My 35-year-old granddaughter, “Sally,” has a 5-year-old son who eats only fast food — French fries, chicken nuggets, ice cream, etc. “Tyler” won’t take vitamins because he “doesn’t want to.” This has been going on for at least two years. When Sally visits, she fills my already overstocked fridge with junk food. She defends Tyler’s eating habits by claiming he’s “stubborn.” She also says the pediatrician told her his eating habits are OK, but this child has severe allergies, as does Sally.

Annie, she should have known there was a problem from the X-rays taken at the preliminary appointment. I told her I did not want to come back and endure the shots and preparation again and asked her to please finish the procedure now, even if one of her partners needed to take over.

If his behavior is rowdy after meals, he may need to cut back on the sugar, and some kids are sensitive to artificial flavors and colors. You have no control over what Sally does in her own home, but when Tyler visits you, make it clear that you are in charge of all meals. But keep some ice cream in the freezer, just in case.

Dear Omaha: You cannot expect your endodontist or her associates to have the flexibility to extend your appointment beyond the time scheduled. Based on the preliminary X-rays, she thought two hours would be sufficient. Once she took a closer look, however, she discovered it was more complicated than anticipated. These things happen and are no one’s fault. — Please email your questions to, or write to Annie’s Mailbox, P.O. Box 118190 Chicago, IL 60611.


‘Same Name’ more absurd than amusing There’s a whole lot of same about “Same Name” (8 p.m., CBS). Saddled with a concept both obvious and belabored, it marries the premise of “Wife Swap” to the desperation of once-famous figures who will apparently do anything and go anywhere to remain visible. In its debut, “Same Name” asks David Hasselhoff of “Baywatch” fame to trade lives and livelihoods with a man named David Hasselhoff from a small Texas town. The switch allows both men to make surprising discoveries. The “Knight Rider” star always looks as if he’s about to be surprised by something. The most ordinary things astound him. Accompanying his new clan to a Hasselhoff family reunion in rural Texas, he shines his megawatt smile and loudly inquires, “Are you all related?” Self-awareness is hardly his strong suit. Over a simple dinner in his hosts’ modest home, Hasselhoff regales everyone with tales of cheap real estate opportunities in Europe, most notably Croatia, where castles, he claims, can be had for a song. For his part, the unknown Hasselhoff approaches newfound celebrity with a sense of wonderment and a voice and accent not unlike that of John C. Reilly in “Talladega Nights.” He marvels at the size of the Hoff ’s bed and shower but feels decidedly lonely and homesick while shuffling solo about the empty mansion. A meeting with his namesake’s manager is meant to impress him (and us) with the actor/singer’s busy touring schedule, but a trip to a Hasselhoff fan club seems a little less than inspiring. Not unlike CBS’ other switcheroo series, “Undercover Boss,” this variation on “The Prince and the Pauper” is intended to remind us that we’re all just people after all, with common bonds of family, friends and neighbors. It’s only the size of our checkbooks that distinguishes us. Not to give too much away, but an episode of “Extreme Makeover: Hasselhoff Edition” erupts about the third act. ● The theme of celebrity worship continues on the eighth and final season debut of “Entourage” (9:30 p.m., HBO). As Vince (Adrian Grenier) returns from rehab, his gang scrambles to clean the house of booze and drugs and to figure out how they will handle their new clean and sober friend and patron. “Entourage” has always revolved around Vince’s dubious claim to stardom and the knuckleheaded schemes of his hangers-on. But now the gang, and even the ruthless Ari (Jeremy Piven), seem to be walking on eggshells, setting the stage for some grown-up developments certain to break up the old (and aging) gang.

Tonight’s other highlights ● Scheduled on “60 Minutes” (6 p.m., CBS): Iraq’s marsh people; New Orleans’ mayor; South Africa’s sharks. ● Scheduled on “Dateline” (6 p.m., NBC): Internet scams. ● Wax figures loom large on the 100th episode of “Man Caves” (7 p.m., DIY). ● An aristocrat’s death is a puzzle on “Zen,” starring Rufus Sewell, on “Masterpiece Mystery” (8 p.m., PBS). ● Sookie helps Eric on “True Blood” (8 p.m., HBO). ● Hal has doubts about Clayton on “Falling Skies” (9 p.m., TNT).

Dear Annie: Yesterday, I went to an endodontist for a root canal. During the procedure, she said one of the roots was unusually formed. After working on me for two hours, she put in a temporary filling and said she’d have to finish the job at the next appointment. She had another patient and had run out of time.
