Effort to further shrink payroll criticized

Retirement incentive program will damage state workforce, says plan opponent


Proposal to add 4 more police officers prevails

By Scott Rothschild

TOPEKA — Gov. Sam Brownback on Tuesday continued his effort to shrink the government payroll by offering incentives to state employees eligible to retire. A leading union official, however, said the administration failed to meet its legal obligations in the offer. “Reducing spending through the voluntary retirement incentive program is one method of helping the state live within its means," Brownback said. The state Brownback will not replace many of those people who retire, officials said. The Kansas Organization of State Employees said the state was required to meet with KOSE to discuss the issue “in good faith” before rolling it out. KOSE Executive Director Jane Carter said that her organization is not opposed to voluntary retirement plans in general but that the Brownback administration hasn’t taken into account the impact that the loss of jobs would have after the recent elimination of 2,000 unfilled positions. “Some departments across the state, already crippled by budget cuts, are so under-staffed, employees are working shifts of 16 hours or more, multiple times during a work week,” Carter said, citing employee turnover at state hospitals as an example. Secretary of Administration Dennis Taylor said the administration was under no obligation to get agreement with KOSE Please see RETIREMENT, page 2A

Kansas’ congressional delegation splits on debt-ceiling legislation By Scott Rothschild

TOPEKA — Members of the Kansas congressional delegation are unified in party — Republican — but they were divided on the bill aimed at avoiding a first-ever U.S. government default. In the Senate, Pat Roberts voted for the measure, signed into law Tuesday by President Barack Obama, and Jerry Moran voted against it. In the House, Lynn Jenkins of Topeka and Mike Pompeo of Wichita voted for it, and Kevin Yoder of Overland Park and Tim Huelskamp of Fowler voted against it. Jenkins’ 2nd District includes western Lawrence, and Yoder’s 3rd includes

DEATHS Susan Elizabeth Rose Susan Elizabeth Rose, 61, Lawrence, Kan., passed away unexpectedly July 30, 2011. Born to Robert and Dorothy (Glaettli) Rose in Madison, Wis., on November 5, 1949, Susan was the fourth of seven children. She grew up in Lenexa, Ks., graduating Rose from Shawnee Mission West HS in 1967. After attending Kansas State University for two years, Susan graduated from Research Hospital School of Nursing in 1972. For many years, she was an obstetrics nurse in the area. The families she worked with often spoke of her compassion and calm. By far, her most grateful patient is daughter Elizabeth (Libby) Sims. Susan helped in the delivery of Libby’s two children. Following her retirement from nursing, Susan continued working, most recently for the Kansas Turnpike Authority in Lawrence. Susan was passionate about reading, gardening, and travel. Her first trip abroad was backpacking through Europe with her sister Barbara. She frequently joined family members to explore the United States, including annual trips to Camp Walden in Michigan with sister Peggy, and to the Walnut Valley Music Festival in Winfield, Ks.

Her most recent trip abroad was to Budapest, Vienna, and Venice with daughter Aubrey Vaughn. Throughout her life, Susan was dedicated to helping those in need of a supporting voice, from championing women’s rights to volunteering at the Headquarters Counseling Center in Lawrence. She is lovingly remembered for her extraordinary love and big heart, and for the aid she provided to the causes and people she sought to help. Susan is preceded in death by her father Robert Jay Rose, sister Barbara Rose Hilton, and husband Charles Mixon. Survivors include two daughters Aubrey Vaughn and Libby Sims; grandchildren Emma and Roy Sims; mother Dorothy Rose; brothers John, Van, Scott, Jim, and sister Peggy; and numerous nieces and nephews, and great nieces and great nephews. At Susan’s request, cremation has taken place. A celebration of life will take place Friday, August 5, from 4 to 7 p.m. at the Lenexa United Methodist Church, 9138 Caenen Lake Rd., Lenexa. Dress casual and share your fond memories. The family suggests memorials to the Headquarters Counseling Center, 211 E. 8th, Suite C, Lawrence, KS, 66044.

plus the detective. The action means the city’s property tax rate will increase by 1.88 mills in 2012. The bulk of the increase comes from a voter-approved expansion of the Lawrence Public Library that will add 1.7 mills to the budget. The remaining 0.18 mill will fund the police officer positions. Schumm’s proposal would have allowed the mill levy to rise only by the 1.7 mills set aside for the library. The vote brought to an end a series of proposals that started flying around City Hall as the 2012 budget entered the homestretch. Schumm made his proposal to reduce the size of the police expansion on Monday. Carter, before Tuesday’s meeting, countered with a proposal to lay off three employees in the city’s planning and development services department, if city commissioners were intent on cutting 0.18 mill from the city budget, which amounts to about $4 a year in taxes on a $200,000 home. Carter said it was critical for the full police expansion to move forward. City commissioners ended up having little appetite to discuss layoffs in the planning and development services department. Both Cromwell and Dever expressed their support for the full police expansion before Carter could ask for a vote on the layoffs. “We have a new police

No deal yet on police, fire union contracts City commissioners and the police and fire unions still have not reached an agreement on new employment contracts for 2012. The City Commission at its Tuesday meeting set a public hearing for Aug. 16, where commissioners will be presented with two contracts — one from the unions and one from city management. Commissioners then will hear “evidence” about which proposal is “more fair and equitable” based on the city’s finances, comparisons with employment plans for municipal workers in area cities and other factors. The hearing is part of a formal process the city is required to go through when labor negotiations have officially been declared at an impasse. The city has not gone through the process recently because it has been able to reach a mutual agreement with the police and fire unions in past negotiations. Under the terms of the process, it is still possible for the city and the unions to reach an agreement before the Aug. 16 hearing. chief, and he has stated that his professional opinion is that we need more police officers,” Dever said. “It is difficult to raise the mill levy, but we have to remain committed to making Lawrence a better community.” In total, the 1.88 mill levy

increase will amount to an extra $43.24 per year in taxes on a $200,000 home. Commissioners also approved several other fee and rate increases as part of the 2012 budget. They include: ● A 2 percent increase in water rates and a 2 percent increase in sewer rates. ● A 2.7 percent increase, or about 40 cents per month, for residential trash service. ● A $7 increase in the city’s Municipal Court fee. The new fee, which represents the court costs that are added onto a ticket, will total $60. Commissioners gave preliminary approval to an increase in the city’s system development charges, which are one-time fees charged to new construction that hooks onto the city’s sewer and water systems. The increase is set to be $340, or an 11 percent hike. Members of the city’s building and real estate industry have asked for the increase to be delayed a year in order to give the industry a chance to recover from the economic downturn. A majority of commissioners said they were leaning toward approving the increase but said they wanted more information from city staff about what the impacts would be of delaying the increase for a year. Technically, all matters related to the city budget must receive one more vote before becoming final. Commissioners will approve the budget on second reading at their meeting next week. — City reporter Chad Lawhorn can be reached at 832-6362.

Jenkins said while the bill wasn’t perfect, it was necessary and provided a good first step. “We have passed a bill that avoids default, cuts nearly a trillion dollars from our bloated federal budget, lays out a plan to cut trillions more, requires an up-or-down vote on a balanced budget amendment, and all without increasing a single American’s taxes,”

Jenkins said. But her congressional neighbor, Yoder, said he couldn’t vote for it. “Although I commend our leaders for working out a temporary solution against choppy political waters, I could not join in an effort that did not solve the problems that got us into this spot in the first place.

Salmonella outbreak kills 1, sickens 76 The government is scrambling to find the source of a salmonella outbreak likely linked to ground turkey that has killed one and sickened dozens more. Finding the source of an outbreak hasn’t been easy; the government has been chasing the illnesses for months. The Agriculture Department, which oversees meat safety, said it is still investigating who produced the meat, and the department hasn’t initiated a recall. California state health officials said Tuesday that the one death was in Sacramento County. Seventysix people in 26 states have been made sick from the same strain of the disease. The illnesses date back to March, and the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Monday that cultures of ground turkey from four retail locations between March 7 and June 27 showed contamination with the same strain of salmonella, though those samples were not specifically linked to the illnesses. The agency said preliminary information showed that three of those samples have been linked to the same production establishment, but it did not name the retailers or the manufacturers.

Local governments team up on SRS effort By Mark Fagan

Representatives from three local governments are joining forces to fight a proposed closure of the SRS off ice in Lawrence. Several elected officials from the Lawrence City Commission and the Lawrence school board joined their top administrators for a working meeting Tuesday afternoon at the Douglas County Courthouse.

They met at the invitation of County Commissioner Mike Gaughan, who gathered the officials with County Administrator Craig Weinaug to explore options for convincing the state to keep the Social and Rehabilitation Services location up and running in Lawrence. The meeting was not open to the public. “We wanted to get all of the representatives of the local governments together to talk about the variety of alternatives that

FAA shutdown may cost more than $1B The government is likely to lose more than $1 billion in airline ticket taxes because lawmakers have left town for a month without resolving a partisan standoff over a bill to end the partial shutdown of the Federal Aviation Administration. The government already has lost more than $200 million since airlines are unable to collect taxes on ticket sales because the FAA’s operating authority has expired. The Senate recessed Tuesday until September, erasing any possibility for quickly resolving the issue. The House left Monday night. Caught up in the partisan acrimony are nearly 4,000 FAA employees who have been furloughed. The FAA also has issued stop work orders on more than 200 construction projects, threatening the jobs of thousands of other workers. Air traffic controllers, however, remain on the job.

Syria toughens siege of Hama

By Mark Fagan


Syrian troops tightened their siege on the city of Hama on Tuesday, sending residents fleeing for their lives and drawing a fresh wave of international condemnation against a regime defying the growing calls to end its crackdown on anti-government protesters. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton met with U.S.-based Syrian democracy activists as the Obama administration weighed new sanctions on Syria. Congressional calls also mounted for action against President Bashar Assad’s regime, as the death toll from two days of military assaults on civilians Sunday and Monday neared 100. Italy recalled its ambassador to Syria “in the face of the horrible repression against the civil population” by the government, which launched a new push against protesters as the Muslim holy month of Ramadan began Monday. It was the first European Union country to pull its ambassador, and the measure came a day after the EU tightened sanctions on Syria.

Plans for a 209-acre retreat for hunters, birdwatchers and corporate clients south of Lawrence are drawing fire from neighbors concerned about losing the area’s rural nature. Tonight, Douglas County commissioners will consider a request to rezone the area known as Sadies Lake for rural tourism uses, a list that could include hunting, lodging, conferences and a variety of agricultural uses. Mike Treanor, a member of the property’s ownership group that includes Lawrence businessman Doug Compton, said that any development would provide a “very light touch:” walking, hiking and horse trails, some cabins and perhaps a conference center for corporate retreats. “We are all about preserving the natural, COUNTY rural character COMMISSION that’s out there, and that we do it in a considerate and intelligent, planned way,” said Treanor, a Lawrence architect. “Doing any development out there would be in character with the rural nature of the area.” But Newton McCluggage, who lives on 140 acres to the south of the property, isn’t buying it. He’s among several property owners to sign a petition protesting the rezoning, a document that would require all three commissioners to approve the measure for it to be enacted. McCluggage already hears the gunfire from folks using the property for hunting and isn’t excited about the prospect of more people visiting the land whose owners have plans for as 13 cabins, a 12,000-square-foot conference center and perhaps projects allowed within the new zoning category. “‘Rural tourism’ is just a euphemism for just a plain old business,” said McCluggage, a retired physician who moved from the Kansas City area 17 Please see RETREAT, page 5A

Prosecutors call off second murder trial

When will that big bridge project on the By George Diepenbrock Kansas Turnpike be finished?


Expect the $130 million bridge-replacement project — and all its related ramp changes, lane adjustments and other related items as the turnpike passes through the northern edge of Lawrence — to be finished in mid-September. “Everything will be open,” said Rex Fleming, project engineer for the Kansas Turnpike Authority. “New signs. New pavement. New pavement markings.” The project started in 2007. But don’t forget: There’s unrelated pavement-replacement work going on east of the Lawrence service area. That work, he said, is expected to be finished by Thanksgiving.

Douglas County prosecutors on Tuesday said that they would not seek a second firstdegree murder trial against a 24-year-old Kansas City, Kan., man who was accused of shooting and killing Lawrence hip-hop artist Anthony Vital. Durrell Jones was scheduled to face his second trial in the case Monday after a jury failed to reach a unanimous verdict, but District Attorney Charles Branson cited issues with the credibility of codefendant Major Edwards Jr., 31, of Lawrence, the state’s key witness in the first trial. “When we presented our case at the first trial, the primary evidence we relied upon and which we expected the jury to rely upon was the testimony of (Edwards). Since the time of that testimony, we received evidence which led us to believe that testimony is not credible,” Branson said Tuesday afternoon. “Given those circumstances, there is no ethical way we could proceed to trial with the evidence we have and expect to prove our case beyond a reasonable doubt.” Prosecutors had accused Jones of shooting Vital, 28, on Oct. 14, 2006, in a rural driveway west of Lawrence to collect on a drug debt. A property owner discovered the body the next day, and after a lengthy investigation Edwards and Jones, who were both in federal custody in other cases, were charged with Vital’s murder in 2008. Edwards in March 2010 pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter, and he testified that he felt remorse for leading Jones to Vital that night. But Edwards said Jones had pulled a gun on both him and Vital, forced him to drive a car the men were traveling in west of Lawrence and then shot Vital once Edwards stopped the car.

Jailhouse allegations A story in Tuesday’s Journal-World detailed new allegations prosecutors had



LAW ENFORCEMENT REPORT • Douglas County prosecutors have dismissed an aggravated arson charge against a 32-yearold Lawrence man accused of trying to set an occupied North Lawrence mobile home on fire in June, but they say they expect to re-file the case later. District Attorney Charles Branson said Tuesday that several witnesses in the case could not be located to be served with subpoenas for a preliminary hearing for William David Charleston. Charleston was originally accused of attempting to set fire to the mobile home in the 800 block of Walnut Street with several people, including three small children, inside. Charleston was still listed as an inmate at the Douglas County Jail on Tuesday. He was also arrested in June on a Kansas Department of Corrections warrant related to his post-release supervision related to a 2008 aggravated battery conviction. • A judge dismissed a pool of Douglas County jurors who were called for a Douglas County sex crime trial originally scheduled for Tuesday after prosecutors moved to dismiss the charges against a 32-year-old man in the case. District Attorney Charles Branson said he could not comment on the case other than to say it had been dismissed without prejudice, meaning prosecutors could refile charges against the man if they do it within the five-year statute of limitations. Prosecutors earlier this year accused the man of sexually abusing one girl and attempting to abuse her younger sister when the girls lived in Lawrence from 2007 to 2009. According to testimony at an earlier hearing, the defendant, who had a Garden City address at the time of his March arrest, is the exboyfriend of the girl’s mother and had lived with the family in Lawrence. The girls are now 13 and 11 years old, and they alleged the abuse occurred while their mother was at work. The Journal-World generally does not identify sex crime suspects unless they are convicted. • Douglas County prosecutors Tuesday filed three charges


recently notified Edwards’ attorney, Napoleon Crews, about. A former jailmate, Joe Hunter, alleged Edwards said he was the one who actually shot Vital. Edwards in handwritten letters to Chief District Judge Robert Fairchild has denied he talked with Hunter about his case and also wrote that he still intended to testify against Jones. “I commend the district attorney’s office for finally making this decision,” defense attorney John Kerns said. “I think it would have been a tremendous waste of time and community resources to suffer through the difficult process of a weeklong jury trial where the inevitable result would have been an acquittal.” The allegations from Hunter were made public in a July 18 hearing in which Edwards unsuccessfully tried to withdraw his guilty plea in the case. Edwards faces 18 years in prison for his voluntary manslaughter conviction, and prosecutors had agreed to ask Fairchild to trim four years from Edwards’ sentence in exchange for cooperation in the Jones case. Branson said prosecutors will now oppose any departure from the 18 years because they don’t believe Edwards’ testimony was truthful. Kerns said the defense had also tracked down for the second trial another former inmate, Demario Eatman, who in the 2008 preliminary hearing alleged Edwards confessed to him that he pulled the trigger. Kerns in the f irst trial attacked Edwards’ credibility, saying there was evidence Edwards had bragged about killing Vital in prison and even written rap lyrics about it. Edwards has contended in his own testimony and letters to the judge that other inmates, including Hunter and Eatman, were lying to try to get time cut from their own sentences. Prosecutors have asked that the case against Jones be dismissed without prejudice. Branson said if new information comes to light implicat-

against a 20-year-old Lawrence man who was accused of running from a police officer after a reported theft Monday from Walmart, 3300 Iowa. Prosecutors charged Oscar R. Gonzales with theft, obstruction and misdemeanor battery of a law enforcement officer. He was also arrested on several warrants. Sgt. Matt Sarna, a Lawrence police spokesman, said Walmart staff members alleged Gonzales and a woman left the store without paying for several items. An officer located a vehicle matching the description given near Clinton Parkway and Kasold Drive, but Gonzales jumped out and ran away before the officer caught him in the area, Sarna said. During a hearing Tuesday a judge set Gonzales’ bond at $2,000, cash or surety. Police later located a 21-year-old woman and arrested her in connection with the case, but she posted $2,500 bond and was given notice to appear in court Aug. 15. Prosecutors can file charges against her before then. • District Judge Kay Huff on Tuesday ordered a 21-year-old Eudora man to stand trial on three counts of aggravated assault after he was accused of pointing a handgun in June at people in another vehicle while traveling west on Kansas Highway 10. Huff heard evidence in the case that prosecutors presented Tuesday during a preliminary hearing for Jordan R. Noble. • A 23-year-old Lawrence woman reported to police May 19 that someone had stolen $5,734 worth of property including a 42-inch LG flat-screen television in a burglary of her residence in the 900 block of Christie Court. She alleged the burglary occurred between 1 a.m. and 3 a.m. May 17. Lawrence police made the report public Tuesday. • A 25-year-old Kansas City, Mo., man reported Sunday the theft of personal property from the 3400 block of West 24th Street. According to a police report, the incident occurred between noon and 2 p.m. Saturday. A laptop and digital camera were among the items reported stolen. The total estimated loss was $2,040.

Before we take any further steps, it’s important for us to reach out to the other governing bodies.” Officials declined to discuss specifics of possibilities, but SRS Secretary Robert Siedlecki Jr. previously has described the announced closure as a cost-cutting move, one expected to save the state $400,000 a year, most of it in rent. About half of the amount is paid by the federal government. Just what the three local governments could do to convince Siedlecki — or his boss, Gov. Sam Brownback — to keep SRS operations in Lawrence remains unclear, but the city, county and school district do work together in other matters. They team up to approve applications for tax breaks by various businesses; the city and county jointly finance planning, plus fire and medical services; and the school district welcomes city police officers — school

2 men to face trial in robbery on KU campus A Douglas County judge Tuesday ordered two men to face a trial in the robbery of two Kansas University students on campus early June 23 as they were walking on Memorial Drive. But a defense attorney for one of the suspects, Brandon James Huggins, 23, said during the hearing that her client urged a KU Public Safety detective to examine video surveillance in the area to show he was not involved in the robbery. COURTS Defense attorney Sarah Swain said Huggins’ assertion occurred during her client’s interview that night with Detective Jack Campbell, who said from the witness stand there were no surveillance cameras in that area of Memorial Drive behind Strong Hall. Prosecutors accuse Huggins, who was identified as a Fort Leavenworth military police officer at the time of his arrest, and Michael Martin Gerald, 21, of robbing the two male KU students who alleged two men robbed them. Campbell testified that Gerald in an interview with police said that he alone robbed the two students because “he was bored.” Police and prosecutors have also said a third man was with Huggins and Gerald in the car

resource officers — at its two high schools and four middle schools. Working together to save a state office targeted for closure may pose a challenge, but officials with all three governments say they’re willing to try. “Our objective is to keep the office open, so we’re not taking anything off of the table,” Gaughan said. “If we can meet our goal, to keep the office open, that’s the measure of our success. How we get there? We still have to work that out.” Potential options span from monetary to real estate and beyond, said Vanessa Sanburn, a school board member who attended the meeting Tuesday afternoon. While the district is severely limited — “ by statute” — in its ability to contribute financially, she said, there’s no doubt that the local governments must work together to make such an important initiative work. “As big of a deal as this is, it falls to all three governing bodies,” said Sanburn, who considers SRS programs and services as key for many students to receive the educations they

both need and deserve. “Certainly, we can’t pay for it (SRS). We can’t adopt SRS as an umbrella under the school district. But we do need to have SRS ... to do our job.” Mark Bradford, board president, said he already had heard from constituents interested in having the district solve the “rent problem” by offering an empty school building for use by SRS. The district allows the Boys and Girls Club, for example, to use the former East Heights School for $1 a year. One problem: “We don’t have any empty buildings,” said Bradford, who also attended the meeting. “We would have to kick somebody out of something. All the buildings have people in them.” David Corliss, Lawrence city manager, said that the city certainly was interested in exploring possibilities for retaining SRS services in town. “We’re going to continue to look at options and alternatives in discussing this issue with SRS,” he said.

that night, but they don’t believe he was involved in the robbery. District Judge Paula Martin dismissed one count of aggravated intimidation of a victim against Gerald because she said there was only testimony that alleged Huggins, not Gerald, made a threatening remark to one of the victims. Both men also each face two counts of aggravated robbery and one count of conspiracy.

Farmers’ market, chef challenge new to fair Douglas County Fair is featuring its first farmers’ market and chef’s challenge on Thursday evening. Cottin’s Hardware Farmers Market is moving from 1832 Mass. to the Douglas County Fairgrounds, 2110 Harper St., for the event. Nearly 30 vendors will offer locally-grown foods and homemade goodies to purchase from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Douglas County Food Policy Council will provide a produce check-in service in Building 21 to keep purchases from wilting while patrons enjoy other activities. The “Farmers Market at the Fair” also will feature children’s activities and two musical groups — Dorian’s Wheel and Vegetable — from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. At 5:45 p.m., Lawrence chefs Rick Martin of Free State Brewery, Ken Baker of Pachamama’s and Subarna Buttachan of Zen Zero will each be provided with a budget for shopping at the vendor booths. Cooking will begin at 6 p.m., with sampler plates offered to a panel of judges and the audience beginning at 7 p.m. Final judging — including an audience participation score — and a drawing for a compost tumbler will wrap up the event by 8 p.m.

the grand champion title in Tuesday night’s 4-H Bucket Calf Show. The 9-year-old Lawrence resident swept the field of 14 with a calm, conf ident demeanor. Working with his calf once or twice a day for the last few months didn’t hurt, either. “I’m really happy, I guess,” he said after being awarded the purple ribbon. In just his first year showing at the Douglas County Fair, Bryce beat out kids ranging in age from 7 to 12 years old. His secret to success? “I walk him and wash him,” Bryce said. “And walk him some more.” Bucket calves are young cows who are orphaned by their mothers and must be raised on a bottle.

— Event judge John Menefee Eudora resident Alexis Leonard, 11, is a veteran of the event, claiming Tuesday’s reserve champion title. The show calls for the children to lead the calves around a ring, positioning their legs evenly at different intervals showing obedience. The gig takes a good deal of training and discipline; the calves quickly outweigh their trainers as they grow. Alexis’ calf has gained about 300 pounds in the five months she’s been working with it. “It helps them mature and it gets them to know what their job is,” Alexis said of showing calves. “Really you’re doing your part, and they’re doing theirs.”

Orientation for child care providers offered Lawrence-Douglas County Health Department is offering an orientation for prospective child care providers. The meeting is from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday at the Community Health Facility, 200 Maine. The meeting will provide information regarding licensing of family day care homes. Kansas law requires that homes be licensed or have a temporary permit when child care is provided away from the child’s own home for one or two children more than 20 hours a week or for three or more children. Licensing is not required when a family member provides care for a relative. To register for the orientation, call the health department at 843-3060.

Event judge John Menefee doled out the ribbons Tuesday, though he said the job was not easy. “We’re not really judging the calf,” he said. “We’re judging the kids and how well they show that calf.” Menefee, who’s been judging bucket calf shows for four summers, said he enjoys seeing youths so involved in agriculture and livestock, calling it the greatest industry in the country. He said seeing kids excited to be working with the animals was great. Bryce was one of the excited youths, and his attitude helped land him the top prize. Surrounded by proud family members after the show, he declared his plans for next summer. Will he return to defend his title? “Yes,” he said. — Reporter Joe Preiner can be reached at 832-6314.

Peace pact proves to be short-lived as bill signed By David Espo

WASHINGTON — With scant time to spare, President Barack Obama signed legislation Tuesday to avoid an unprecedented national default that he said would have devastated the U.S. economy. But the truce with Republicans that defused the crisis seemed to be fading already. Wall Obama Street crumpled, dismayed by reports of new economic weakness and unimpressed by Congress’ prescription. The Dow Jones industrial average sank by 266 points, its eighth straight losing session, and biggest. The compromise deal to persuade GOP lawmakers to raise the federal debt limit — U.S. borrowing was to collide with it at midnight — will cut federal spending by $2.1 trillion or more over the next decade. But Obama immediately challenged Republicans to accept higher taxes on the wealthy in a second round of deficit cuts this fall. They adamantly refused to accept that idea during the past months’ dispute.

Work far from over A stern-faced Obama said at the White House that action to raise the debt limit had been essential but more — and different — steps were badly needed. “We’ve got to do everything in our power to grow this economy and put America back to work,” the president said, arguing forcefully for including revenue increases as well as spending cuts in the next round of efforts to trim huge government deficits. It was the same call the GOP successfully resisted in the bill just approved, and there was little evidence of a change in position. “The American people agreed with us on the nature of the problem. They know the government didn’t accumulate $14.3 trillion in debt because it didn’t tax enough,” said the party’s leader in the Senate, Mitch McConnell of Kentucky. Obama placed his signature on bill in the privacy of the Oval Office less than two hours after a bipartisan 74-26 vote in the Senate. The House approved the measure Monday night on a 269-161 roll call that also reached across party

lines and was sealed by a rap of the gavel by Speaker John Boehner.

Essential legislation The bill allows a quick $900 billion increase in borrowing authority as well as a first installment on spending cuts amounting to $917 billion over a decade. Without legislation in place by day’s end, the Treasury would have been unable to pay all the nation’s bills, leading to a potential default for the first time in history. Administration off icials warned of disastrous consequences for an economy that shows fresh signs of weakness on a near-daily basis as it struggles to recover from the worst recession in decades. The White House and congressional leaders said legislation was important to reassure investors at home as well as overseas, and also to preserving the nation’s AAA credit rating. Following passage of the debt deal, Moody’s Investors Service, one of the three main ratings agencies, said it was retaining its triple-A rating on U.S. bonds but with a negative outlook to show there is still a risk of a downgrade. Short-lived peace pact This week’s peace pact

between the two parties is unlikely to be long-lived. The bill sets up a powerful 12-member committee of lawmakers with authority to recommend fresh deficit savings from every corner of the federal budget. Politically sensitive benefit programs such as Social Security and Medicare will be on the table as the panel of six Republicans and six Democrats works against a Thanksgiving deadline. So, too, an overhaul of the tax code. Congress will have until Christmas to vote on the recommendations without the ability to make changes. As an incentive for Congress to act, failure to do so would trigger $1.2 trillion in automatic spending cuts, affecting the Pentagon as well as domestic programs. Even before the president signed the legislation, he and Republicans were maneuvering for political position on the next stage. “We can’t balance the budget on the backs of people who have borne the biggest brunt of this recession,” the president said, renewing his call for higher taxes on the wealthy. “Everyone is going to have to chip in. It’s only fair.” Senate Republicans say it will not happen.

Additional cuts ● The plan would also create a 12-person, House-Senate committee evenly divided between the political parties, and charged with producing up to $1.5 trillion more in deficit cuts over 10 years. This second wave of spending cuts would focus on socalled mandatory programs whose spending levels are set by formula. They include Medicare, the Medicaid health program for the poor and disabled, farm subsidies and federal retirement programs. Other ● The plan would also require both House and Senate to vote on a balanced budget amendment to the Constitution; establish “program integrity” initiatives aimed at stemming abuses in Social Security and federal health care programs; and preserve recent funding increases for Pell Grants for low-income college students by $17 billion over 2012-13, financed by curbs in student loan subsidies. “I’m comfortable we aren’t going to raise taxes coming out of this joint committee,” McConnell said in an interview with Fox on Monday. In a speech shortly before the vote, he predicted instead a renewal of the most recent struggle over spending cuts. The debt limit will have to be raised shortly after the 2012 election, he said, predicting that no president of either party will be “allowed to raise the debt ceiling without ... having to engage in the kind of debate we’ve just been through.”

Census change The state’s census adjustment process is expensive, unfair and unnecessary.


ansas is the only state in the nation that attempts to adjust the U.S. Census by statistically sending students and military personnel who are living in one Kansas community back to their “home” communities in Kansas or out of state. Sometimes it’s fine to be different. This is not one of them. The impact of this census “adjustment” is highlighted every 10 years when state lawmakers are preparing to redraw congressional and legislative districts. Although the populations in congressional districts are equalized using federal census figures, legislative districts are redrawn using the adjusted figures that carve out students and military personnel. The big losers in this process, of course, are communities that are home to large universities like Kansas University and Kansas State University. Douglas County takes a big hit in the adjustment game, but Riley County gets a double whammy because it is the home of both Kansas State University and Fort Riley. Douglas County lost about 11 percent of its population in the adjustment, and Riley lost about 15.5 percent. The roots of the adjustment go back to the state’s old “agricultural census,” which was separate from the federal census and conducted by the Kansas Board of Agriculture. When the constitutional amendment was passed abolishing the separate state census in the 1980s, lawmakers still thought it was necessary to try to move college students and military personnel back to their “permanent” residence, so the adjustment process was born. The Kansas Secretary of State’s recent report on the recount noted various attempts to minimize the expense of the process, but it still cost the state about $200,000. It also doesn’t include the expense to Kansas colleges and military installations that must help facilitate the process. If there was a good reason to conduct the recount, that cost might be justified, but the whole process is more of an historical anomaly than a useful tool. If students are living in a university community for nine months or more out of the year, they should be counted as residents of that community. That is the community where they not only live but probably also vote. That means that even though they have declared themselves “permanent” residents of another community, they are voting for state senators and representatives in the district in which they really live. It also means that legislators in those districts actually represent considerably more people than the census reflects. The census adjustments probably help rural areas of the state shore up their population figures, but there is a question of fairness. The adjustments also simply remove many students and military personnel from the state altogether. The state’s total adjusted population in 2010 was 13,673 lower than the federal census figures. Whoever those people are, they apparently don’t deserve representation in Kansas state government. Whatever purpose this process was intended to serve, Kansas is the only state that thinks it is necessary. The state should look at the cost and fairness of its census adjustments and think about making a change.

Early blunders will haunt Obama WASHINGTON — The story is that as Mark Twain and novelist William Dean Howells stepped outside one morning, a downpour began and Howells asked Twain, “Do you think it will stop?” Twain answered, “It always has.” The debt-ceiling impasse has, as things generally do, ended, and a post-mortem validates conservatives’ portrayal of Barack Obama and their dismay about the dangers and incompetence of liberalism’s legacy, the regulatory state. For weeks, you could not fling a brick in Washington without hitting someone with a debtreduction plan — unless you hit Obama, whose plan, which he intimated was terrifically brave, was never put on paper. In a prime-time spill of his usual applesauce about millionaires, billionaires and oil companies, he said, yet again, that justice demanded a “balanced” solution — one involving new revenues. His whistle into the wind came after Washington’s most consequential Democrat, Harry Reid, proposed a revenue-free solution. By aff irming liberalism’s lodestar — the principle that government’s grasp on national resources must constantly increase — Obama made himself a spectator in a Washington more conservative than it was during the Reagan presidency. By accepting, as he had no choice but to do, Congress’ resolution of the crisis, Obama annoyed liberals. They indict him for apostasy from their one-word catechism, “More!” But egged on by them, he

talked himself into a corner. Having said that failure to raise the ceiling would mean apocalypse, he could hardly say failure to raise revenues would be worse. As with his dozens of exhortations during the health care debate, and his campaigning for candidates in 2009 and 2010, his debt-ceiling rhetoric was impotent. Still, the debt debate was instructive about recent history, the openness of America’s political process, and the nature of the American regime. Regarding recent history: Panic-mongers warned, “Raise the ceiling lest the stock market experience a TARP convulsion.” Yes, the market declined almost 778 points when the House rejected TARP. But who remem-

bered that after TARP was quickly enacted, in the next f ive months the market lost another 3,800 points? Regarding the political process: There are limits to what can be accomplished by those controlling only half of Congress, but the tea party has demonstrated that the limits are elastic under the pressure of disciplined and durable passion. As Tom Brokaw said in Washington on “Meet the Press” last Sunday, the debt-ceiling drama ended as it did because the tea party got angry, got organized and got here. Regarding the federal regime: Before this debate, who knew that the government sends more than 100 million checks or electronic transfers a month to employees, vendors and — much the largest group — entitlement beneficiaries, including 21 million households receiving food stamps? During various liberal ascendancies, the federal spider has woven a web of dependencies. The political purpose has been to produce growing constituencies of voters disposed to vote Democratic. This disposition, aka the entitlement mentality, is triggered by making the constituencies constantly apprehensive about the security of their status as wards of government. Obama’s presidency may last 17 or 65 more months, but it has been irreversibly neutered by two historic blunders made at its outset. It defined itself by health care reform most Americans did not desire, rather than by eco-

nomic recovery. And it allowed, even encouraged, self-indulgent liberal majorities in Congress to create a stimulus that confirmed conservatism’s portrayal of liberalism as an undisciplined agglomeration of parochial appetites. This sterile stimulus discredited stimulus as a policy. Obama’s 2012 problem is that he dare not run as a liberal but cannot run from his liberalism. The left’s narrative for 2012 is that by not offering another stimulus, Washington is being dangerously frugal. This, even though his stimulus — including cash for clunkers, cash for caulkers, dollars for dishwashers (yes, there actually were money showers for home improvements and greener appliances), etc. — led downhill. The economy’s calamitous 0.8 percent growth in the first half of this year indicates that the already appalling deficit projections for coming years are much too optimistic. The debt increases caused by anemic growth and job creation may dwarf whatever debt reduction results from the process initiated by the debt-ceiling agreement. This may portend a vicious downward spiral as increased borrowing and the burden of debt service further suffocate America’s dynamism. America may be one-third of the way through a lost decade — or worse, toward a lost national identity. So, Republicans have their 2012 theme: “Is this the best we can do?” — George Will is a columnist for Washington Post Writers Group.

When AttorIN 1986 ney General Robert Stephan decided not to run for governor, seven Republican candidates had entered the fray.

One of the most frightening of ALEC’s activities is its sending of model legislative bills to legislators all across the country. Public watchdog groups have viewed this mixture of corporate interests and legislation as unethical and have asked for investigations. The resolution opposing the regulations of the Environmental Protection Agency (think Exxon Mobil’s oil spills in Alaska and Yellowstone Park) was passed 100 to 22 in the Kansas House. Appalling, but not surprising. Lynn Mensch Anderson, Lawrence

To the editor: Our Constitution was a document of compromise, a compromise made between 13 states, each with different ideals, different backgrounds and different hopes. They made a compromise, “The Constitution of the United States of America,” because the problems our country faced were greater than the differences between them, like today. The tea party who spouts the mantra “no compromise” does a disservice to the ideals and hopes of our founding fathers and mothers. They would see our oncegreat country reduced to a second- or third-rate country in order to support childish ways. It is time for tea party supporters to understand that compromise is the American Way. Bruce W.

A lengthy and important agenda was awaiting the Lawrence City YEARS Commission at its AGO upcoming meeting. IN 1971 The commission was to consider 20 items from the Lawrence-Douglas County Planning Commission as well as two significant ordinances. The first ordinance required tiedowns for all mobile homes in the city, while the second regulated truck traffic within the city limits. The Planning Commission had recently produced several items for the city commissioners, including site plans for two shopping centers at 15th and Kasold Drive. In addition, the city board was holding a public hearing on the proposed 1972 city budget.

Crop conditions wither with heat WICHITA — Kansas Agricultural Statistics Service says triple-digit temperatures continue to put pressure on Kansas farm crops despite spotty thunderstorms in some locations. The agency reported Monday in its weekly crop update that 38 percent of the Kansas corn crop is in poor to very poor condition. About 28 percent was rated as fair, 29 percent is rated as good and 5 percent is excellent. KASS noted the extreme heat came during the critical pollination stage. The heat also is taking a toll on other crops. About 40 percent of the sorghum and 39 percent of the soybeans were in poor to very poor condition. The service says about 11 percent of the sunflower crop also is in poor to very poor condition.

Ice Age Denmark band Ice Age braves the Kansas heat to put on an early show tonight at the Jackpot, 943 Mass. The hardcore band graduated from the school of short, three-chord songs and are all the better for it. Maybe the most remarkable aspect of Ice Age is that despite their short song lengths, the tracks still manage to be dynamic, usually changing into a completely different song during a breakdown or final verse. They are joined by Dark Ages out of Kansas City and Lawrence’s own Mouthbreathers, another straightforward group that delivers great music with no strings attached or unnecessary showmanship.

KANSAS UNIVERSITY COACH TURNER GILL LOOKS ON as the Jayhawks’ defense works out on sleds in this April 18 file photo at the KU practice fields near Memorial Stadium. Gill and the Jayhawks report to fall camp today.

Six storylines to follow as KU fall practices begin By Matt Tait

Dallas, where Gill seemed to operate with an extra dose of excitement about the upcoming season. While certain things — such as staying injury-free and uncovering which players are for real — seem to be the aim of every preseason camp, KU’s 2011 camp has some pretty specific storylines worth watching. Here’s a look:

They won’t put on pads, aren’t planning on picking up a football and certainly won’t be game-planning for their f irst opponent, which comes to town one month from now in the form of the McNeese State Cowboys. But today is the day the 2011 college football season officially 1. The Quarterback Race For a couple of seasons in the begins at Kansas University, as the Jayhawks report to fall camp this late 2000s, KU entered fall camp afternoon with the ceremonial with an answer to the game’s most important question. The popular move into Naismith Hall. That’s where the Jayhawks will “Who will handle QB duties this call home for the next few weeks, fall” was answered with the joyous with official practices set to begin words, “Todd Reesing,” and, with Thursday and two-a-days slated to that, all was well. Now, two years removed from Reesing’s final fall start Aug. 10. No matter how good or bad the camp, the Jayhawks are still searching to replace him. previous season Last season, Gill started was, the start of three different guys each new football under center in Kale Pick, season typically is Jordan Webb and Quinn met with optiMecham. All three mism, excitement struggled and the and anticipation offense did, too. from fans, coaches and This year, the players. coaches say the On Tuesday, Twitter goal is to pick one was abuzz with current and stick with him, Jayhawks Tweeting and the early leader about their excitement appears to be Webb, for the season’s first offiwho enters camp a year cial practice.

November. Quarterback Jordan Webb Never was that more obvious than last week in

2. New-Look Defense Last year, the Jayhawks entered fall camp under defensive coordinator Carl Torbush. With Torbush retiring this spring to focus on his fight with prostate cancer, the defense will be run by cornerbacks coach Vic Shealy and defensive line coach Buddy Wyatt. Both coaches have impressive resumes and have been at their share of bigtime programs. Knowing what to do won’t be a problem. Getting the team to do it will be the challenge, although Shealy and Wyatt will have much greater speed and depth at their disposal than Torbush did in 2010. In addition to scouting the way the new defensive bosses run things, it also will be interesting to watch what they run. There has been some talk about the Jayhawks switching to the 3-4, which employs three defensive linemen and four linebackers instead of the opposite. Such a move could benefit the team. KU has good depth, talent and experience at linebacker and a ton of question marks on the defensive line. Both Shealy and Wyatt have said they plan to tweak the defense a little this season, with simplifying it being the main objective. 3. Guess Who’s Back? Several players who missed part or all of 2010 because of injuries head into preseason camp healthy and ready to return. At the top of Linebacker this list are Huldon Tharp former starters Jeff Spikes

(offensive line, Achilles’ tendon), Trevor Marrongelli (offensive line, leg) and Huldon Tharp (linebacker, foot) along with red-shirt freshmen Brandon Bourbon (running back, leg) and Ed Fink (linebacker, leg) and senior Rell Lewis (running back, knee). Two others who missed most of 2010 but could play key roles this season are junior defensive end D.J. Marshall, who, late last year, was declared cancer-free after a battle with Hodgkins Lymphoma, and sophomore safety Keeston Terry, who played in the first three games of 2010 but missed the rest of the season with a leg injury. Terry is projected to start at free safety.

4. Fab Freshmen In 2010, Gill played just a few true freshmen. A week ago in Dallas, he said the reason for that was that he didn’t see a ton of young guys who had shown they were ready to play at the Division I level. That won’t be the case with this year’s group. Not only did Gill bring in this talented crop of 27 freshmen and junior-college transfers to add competition, he brought them in to play. At signing day in February, Gill said he’d likely play about half Please see KU, page 3B


K.C. steamrolled by O’s on steamy night KANSAS CITY, MO. (AP) — Rather than get steamed, Mark Reynolds got busy. On a night when the gametime temperature was 107 degrees, Reynolds overcame a tough first at-bat to homer, double, single and drive in five runs as the Baltimore Orioles beat the Kansas City Royals, 8-2, Tuesday. Reynolds could’ve done even

more damage, but grounded into a double play with the bases loaded that ended the f irst inning. “That first at-bat was real frustrating,” Reynolds said. “I had a chance to hit at least a sac fly.” Manager Buck Showalter, however, had some encouraging words for Reynolds. “I patted him on the back after

he came in between innings and I said, ‘there will be another big at-bat here, let’s go,’” Showalter said. “He accepted the challenge. I thought the double was the key at-bat of the night.” A hot night, for sure. Research by the Royals media relations department could not find a hotter temperature to start a game at Kansas City.

It was 106 for a game on July 30, 1980. Reynolds, who leads the Orioles with 60 RBIs, stroked a twoout, two-run double in the third. The hit drove in J.J. Hardy, who snapped an 0-for-18 slide with a single, and Nick Markakis, who had walked. Please see ROYALS, page 3B

ROYALS VS. ORIOLES When: 7:10 tonight Where: Kansas City, Mo. TV: FSKC (Knology channels 36, 236)

Greg Gurley played in 124 games — while starting just one — during his four-year Kansas University basketball career. He opened the 1995 Senior Day game against Oklahoma State — a showdown for the Big Eight regular-season title. “I had 100 family and friends at the game. We had a big party afterwards. It was a cool day,” Gurley said about the Jayhawks’ 78-62 victory that assured KU a net-cutting ceremony for the fourth time in five seasons. “I had about 15 or 17 (points). The guy I guarded had 45,” Gurley added with a laugh. The former Shawnee Mission South standout guard actually scored 13 points off 4-of-5 shooting — including 3-of-4 from three — in 12 productive minutes. OSU’s Randy Rutherford exploded for 45 points off 11-of-19 three-point marksmanship — all in a losing cause. You can bet Gurley will be telling the story of that game, as well as his team’s 1993 Final Four run, during gatherings with KU athletics department donors — and potential donors — in his new job as director of development of KU’s Williams Educational Fund. The personable, 38-year-old Gurley, who worked in broadcasting the past 10 years while also owning a sports apparel company, has plenty of memories to share, including one involving current KU basketball coach Bill Self. “He recruited me out of high school. In 1990, I had an in-home visit with Eddie Sutton and Bill Self,” Gurley said of Sutton, the former Oklahoma State coach, and Self, then an assistant at his alma mater, OSU. “Bill remembers my parents’ basement, that my mom made some cookies, all the names. He’s a machine. His memory is ridiculous. He is something else.” Gurley certainly will be talking to some of Self’s former players — as well as Roy Williams’ former players — in his new fundraising role. He’ll be talking to athletes and ex-athletes alike. “It’s one thing to ask (for donations). It’s another thing to say, ‘Hey, you should come back,’’’ Gurley said about conversations with former players. “A lot of guys haven’t been back to see the renovations — football or basketball. “The (hoops) locker room and players lounge ... that stuff is cool. My philosophy is not going to be hard-selling, saying, ‘Hey, if you come back, I want you to stroke a check before you leave.’ That’s not going to be me. They are going to give if they want to give. “Some of the football players who were here when I was here haven’t been back. I mean, football games are so much fun. Guys need to get back and see the new Please see GURLEY, page 3B

• The Royals finish their series against the Orioles



NBA takes legal action against players By Dave Campbell Associated Press Writer

Trying to head off the chance of an antitrust lawsuit from the NBA Players Association, the league went ahead and beat the union to court. The NBA f iled two claims against the NBAPA on Tuesday— an unfair labor practice charge with the National Labor Relations

Board and a lawsuit in federal district court in New York. The NBA accused the players of being uncooperative in negotiations toward a new collective bargaining agreement by making “more than two dozen” threats to dissolve their union and sue the league under antitrust laws to secure more favorable terms in a new CBA. Commissioner David Stern told


The more Tiger’s world changes... By Bob Dyer Akron Beacon Journal

AKRON , O HIO — Almost everything has changed, but nothing has changed. Since Tiger Woods last grabbed a championship trophy at Firestone Country Club — a mere two summers ago, although it seems much longer — he has a acquired a new caddie, a new swing coach, new management, new injuries, a new reputation and a new vulnerability. He lost his wife, badly tarnished his golden-boy image and dropped like a boulder in the World Golf Ranking. But the man still triggers a frenzy wherever he goes. Immediately after the announcement Thursday that he would make his longawaited return from the disabled list at the Bridgestone Invitational in Akron, requests for media credentials shot up. Keep in mind that most news organizations plan trips well in advance to save money, and the dates for this tournament have been set for more than a year. Yet just since Tiger tweeted his intentions, 18 more news organizations and 30 more reporters have signed on. That brings the total media attendance to 367 reporters from 125 organizations and nine countries. Seriously. On Tuesday morning, at 9:53 a.m., seven minutes early, Woods strolled into the interview room looking dapper, if a bit monochromatic, in a black Nike cap, a dark gray Nike shirt and dark gray slacks. Anyone who expected the 35-year-old legend to seem sheepish after sitting out nearly 12 weeks with knee and Achilles’ tendon injuries was in for a surprise. Except for a new configuration of facial hair, which makes him look a bit like a Cablinasian Amishman, he seemed like much the same fellow as the one who made his Firestone debut in the final year of the previous century. Woods was relaxed and confident, often funny, occasionally pointed and always articulate. Questions flew in all sorts of different accents, no surprise given the presence of sports hounds from Australia, Japan, Germany, Britain, Ireland, Scotland, Canada and Korea. Even if the leaderboard no longer changes much based on Tiger’s presence or absence, the overall atmosphere certainly does. Larry Dorman, veteran golf writer for the New York Times, looked around the media workroom early Tuesday morning and said, “I’ve been here on Tuesday before, and I’ve never seen as many people in this room as I’m looking at right now. “There’s always a different vibe when Tiger’s around. Now it’s different in a way; before, you were there to see if he was going to win, and now you’re looking to see how he’s progressing. It’s caused by a different thing, but it’s still a Tiger kind of buzz.” ESPN’s Tom Rinaldi was among those whose plans changed because of Tiger. He was scheduled to cover another event this week but was redirected at the last minute. Unlike past years, the course was closed to the public on Tuesday, mainly because the number of fans paying to watch practice rounds two days before the actual competition has not been large enough to justify the cost of staffing the grounds, particularly in terms of security. But even that changed after Senor Woods decided to come. “We definitely ramped up our security,” said Akron police officer Mike Gilbride, stationed at one of the entrances. “We were not supposed to be here today. When they found out Tiger was coming, they wanted an additional four officers.” Twenty-nine minutes after entering the media lair, Woods exited stage left. Just outside the door, he was ambushed by the always amiable Bob Stevens, a former Cleveland TV sports anchor who now lives in Hilton Head, S.C., and works for the PGA Tour Network. A few Q and A’s later, Woods climbed into the back seat of a silver Cadillac CTS 4 with Michigan plates and sped off into the bright summer morning, allegedly sound of both body and mind. We’ll see.

The Associated Press in a phone interview that an unproductive meeting Monday with union executive director Billy Hunter, president Derek Fisher and others confirmed to the league it needed to take this action. “There doesn’t seem to be a seriousness of purpose to the players and we keep reading about they’re considering decertification, and

the agents are meeting with Billy to talk about decertif ication, Derek was quoted as saying it’s an option on the table,” Stern said. Stern added: “And we think that as long as they are preparing to use the same strategy that the NFL, who uses the same lawyer, used, it doesn’t seem that we’re going to be able to get to the deal that we need to get to together.”


Angels’ Weaver suspended 6 games ANAHEIM, CALIF. — Los Angeles Angels ace Jered Weaver will appeal the six-game suspension he drew Tuesday from Major League Baseball for throwing a pitch over the head of Detroit’s Alex Avila last weekend. Weaver also was fined an undisclosed amount by MLB senior vice president Joe Garagiola Jr. for the toss, which came right after the Tigers’ Carlos Guillen showboated on a home run. Angels manager Mike Scioscia was suspended one game because Weaver threw at Avila after both teams were warned Sunday by plate umpire Hunter Wendelstedt. Scioscia sat out Tuesday night’s game against Minnesota. Weaver “I obviously knew that something was going to happen,” Weaver said. “It’s six games, and it is what it is, but I’ve decided to appeal it. I wanted my voice heard a little bit on the situation and how it went down, see what they feel about it and go from there. So we’ll see what happens.” Weaver will have his say during a hearing in New York during the middle of next week while the Angels are in town for a three-game set with the Yankees.

Now he’s grabbed the top pass-catching tight end on the free agent market. The Seahawks announced Tuesday afternoon they had reached agreement on a reported five-year deal with Pro Bowl tight end Zach Miller. Terms weren’t announced. Earlier Tuesday, the Seahawks agreed to terms with defensive end Jimmy Wilkerson, who adds depth to Seattle’s defensive line as a potential rusher in passing situations. The Miller signing reunites him with former Oakland coach Tom Cable, now Seattle’s offensive line coach, and with Miller coming off the two finest seasons of his pro career. Just 25 years old, Miller was a Pro Bowl selection last season after catching 60 passes and five touchdowns, but he was even better in 2009 when he caught 66 passes for 865 yards and three touchdowns.

Kansas women release 2011-2012 schedule J-W Staff Reports

Kansas University’s women’s basketball team will play 19 teams that advanced to the postseason last year in its 2011-12 schedule, which was released Tuesday. The Jayhawks will play 19


of the incoming class at some point during 2011. Some could become starters, others could be backups and still more could find their way onto the field through special teams. Based on what they’ve shown so far, here are the top candidates for early playing time: running back Darrian Miller, defensive back Adonis Saunders, running back Anthony Pierson, defensive back Victor Simmons, defensive end Michael Reynolds, wide receiver JaCorey Shepherd and place kicker Alex Mueller.

They see that, and they’ll see this administration is serious about everything.” Gurley said the basketball facilities are so much better than during his playing days (1992-95). “It’s big-time,” Gurley said. “The locker room, bathroom, weight facilities ... everything about it is night and day. Raef (LaFrentz) hasn’t been back since ’01. We talked the other day about just coming back for a game. I said, ‘You will say, “This is an NBA-esque facility.’’’ Gurley, who has been on the job six weeks, will be commuting from Kansas City, where he lives with wife, Amy, and daughters Kate (11) and Jane (8).


“I had the bases loaded again, shortened up, tried to hit the ball into the gap,” Reynolds said. “He threw me a fastball down the middle and I was able to get a good swing.” Reynolds hit his 24th home run in the ninth with Markakis and Vladimir Guerrero aboard to break open a 52 game. The shot to left field hit off the Royals’ 2012 AllStar Game logo, which was unveiled before the game. “I didn’t know I hit it, but I don’t feel bad about it,” said Reynolds, who matched a career high for RBIs.

soaring above the 100-degree mark on a regular basis, keeping an eye on the heat will be a must for the Jayhawks this fall. Asked in Dallas if he liked training in triple-digit temperatures, Gill was honest. “No, that’s a little bit too much,” he said. “If it can be in the low 90s, that’s hot enough.” Not only will the extreme heat be cause for concern, it also will give the coaching staff an easy opportunity to see who’s in good shape and who isn’t as they race toward the Sept. 3 season opener. Gill, several players and the strength and conditioning staff have said the Jayhawks enter fall camp in better shape than they were last year.

Freshman quarterback Brock Berglund will be a popular player as camp unfolds, even if he doesn’t work his way into the race to become KU’s starter. The list of things people will be Berglund watching most closely regarding Berglund include: Will he show up in the first place? How will he mesh with his teammates? Will his teammates welcome him? And, finally, is the guy as good as advertised? The answer to most of those ques6. Brock Watch People may be tired of hear- tions should come quickly.

Part of his job description is “implementing strategic fundraising initiatives with Kansas athletics annual-fund and major-gift donors, with an emphasis on K-Club letterwinners and donors in the K.C. metropolitan area.” “I think my broadcasting was enough from November through April, but now it’s nice to be up here all the time,” Gurley said. “I love Lawrence. I love this school. It’s not like this is a steppingstone job for me. This is it. I love this place. Everything about it. I’m happy.” And KU is happy to have him. “Greg is a Kansas native and is well connected in the Kansas City area,” said Terry Mohajir, KU associate athletic director for development and marketing. “His love for this university, his intimate knowledge of Kansas athletics and his many relationships with former KU student-ath-

Renteria’s grand slam rockets Reds over Houston The Associated Press

American League Tigers 6, Rangers 5 DETROIT — Brennan Boesch hit a solo home run off Mike Adams amid an eighth-inning rain shower, sending Detroit to a victory over Texas on Tuesday night. Adams (0-1) was making his debut for the Rangers after coming over from San Diego just before the trade deadline. He got the first out of the eighth, but as the rain began falling harder, Boesch lined his 16th homer of the season over the wall in right field. Texas

Use zucchini surplus in a variety of meal ideas Q:

Do large zucchini have the same nutritional value as small ones? I am told to only use small zucchini, but I have so many large ones that I don’t want to waste. If I make breads or side dishes with the large ones, are they equally nutritious as the smaller ones?


The nutritional value is basically the same for large and small zucchini. However, the extremely large ones tend to have a less desirable texture and quality. Your idea to use them in bread is probably the best use for larger zucchini. Stewing would also be a good preparation for large zucchini. Q: What causes the bitterness in some zucchini and cucumbers? A: Mild bitterness in zucchinis or cucumbers is not uncommon and can be caused by environmental stress like high temperatures, drought, wide swings in temperatures or uneven watering practices that tend to concentrate cucurbitacins in the fruit. Vine crops including cucumbers and zucchini produce chemicals called cucurbitacins, which give a bitter taste to the fruit. In cultivated cucumbers and zucchini these chemicals are normally in such low concentrations that we can’t taste them. However, sometimes gardeners pick zucchini that are extremely bitter. If this happens to you, do not try to eat the zucchini. A couple of grams of this extremely bitter squash can cause diarrhea and stomach cramps that can last up to three days. Q: What’s the best way to store zucchini? A: Store unwashed zucchini in perforated plastic bags in the crisper drawer of the refrigerator. Wash zucchini just before preparation. You

Mix your way to a better margarita McClatchy Newspapers

What makes a better margarita, Persian limes or little Key limes or mixing either with lemon? Each will play up other flavors in a dish, so knowing their traits can guide their use. Key limes (Citrus aurantifolia) are small, yellower, more acidic and more aromatic than darker green Persians (Citrus latifolia). Key limes have seeds. Persian limes, also called Bearss, usually have no seeds and are less acidic. Lemons are less acidic by weight than limes. Chef Norman Van Aken’s savvy about citrus. The Norman of Norman’s in the RitzCarlton in Orlando, he’s also exec chef at the Miami Culinary Institute’s restaurant. His take? “There are different levels of acidity among the lemon, lime and Key lime. I don’t find that there is a grand difference between Key limes and Persian limes, but I do think Key limes are a bit more tart. Because of the acidity and potency of the Key lime, 9 times out of 10, I’m going to counterbalance that acidity,” he said, citing Key lime pie’s sweetened condensed milk as an example. “The Key lime has a complexity that is kind of fascinating,” he adds, while a Persian lime “is not as potent nor do I find it to be quite as complex.” But he uses all three to give a dish “lift.” “Generally, you’re looking for salt, pepper and acid in almost every food that you eat.” And the margarita argument? “Get Key limes and Persian limes. Make your favorite lime-based cocktail. Try one with the Key lime, one with Persian. See what you like.”

can either purchase perforated plastic bags or make small holes with a sharp object in unperforated plastic bags (about 20 holes per medium-size bag). For best quality, use zucchini within about 3 to 4 days. Wash zucchini just before preparation. Q: I’ve got a ton of zucchini. What should I do with it? A: The Produce for Better Health Foundation at suggests: ● Slice, marinate (try balsamic vinegar) and grill a variety of vegetables, includ-

ing zucchini, asparagus, green onions, eggplant and mushrooms. They’re delicious! ● Cut up veggies like carrots, zucchini and potatoes. Add them to your favorite meatloaf or soup recipes. ● Take your favorite lasagna recipe and try adding different combinations of your favorite vegetables between the layers: mushrooms, spinach, broccoli, carrots, zucchini, onions or eggplant. Be creative. Additional tips include: ● Add raw zucchini to lettuce and pasta salads. ● Cut zucchini into sticks and serve with a dip. ● Slice zucchini, sauté in oil over medium heat for about 5 minutes until tender crisp, toss into heated pasta sauce for a veggie-packed pasta topping. You can also freeze it. To freeze grated zucchini for baking, the National Center for Home Food Preservation recommends: ● Choose young, tender

zucchini. Wash and grate. Steam blanch (directions below) in small quantities 1 to 2 minutes until translucent. Pack in measured amounts into containers, leaving 1/2-inch headspace. Cool by placing the containers in cold water. Seal and freeze. If watery when thawed, discard the liquid before using the zucchini. ● To steam-blanch zucchini: Use a pot with a tight lid and a basket that holds the food at least 3 inches above the bottom of the pot. Put an inch or two of water in the pot and bring the water to a boil. Put the vegetables in the basket in a single layer so that steam reaches all parts quickly. Cover the pot and keep heat high. Start counting steaming time as soon as the lid is on. Here are a couple of recipes for you to try:

LEMON ROSEMARY ZUCCHINI 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil 1 medium yellow bell pepper, diced

2 teaspoons finely minced fresh rosemary 2 cups chopped zucchini (2 medium) 1-3 teaspoons freshly squeezed lemon juice, or to taste Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

In medium non-stick skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add yellow pepper and rosemary and sauté two minutes. Add zucchini and salt and pepper, to taste. Continue to sauté for another 4 to 5 minutes or until zucchini is just tender. Remove from heat and stir in lemon juice.

bouldardil, plus beneficial acids like glucuronic, lactic and acetic. But before Pees could get his probiotics to the general public, a lot of experimentation had to take place first. After growing the scobys large enough to make initial batches, Pees hunkered down for a yearlong trial-and-error process before the drink was ready to sell. “I spent a lot of time trying to figure out how much tea to use, how long to brew the tea for, how much sugar to use so that the culture would ferment for the amount of time that I wanted, and then at what pH level to stop the fermentation process, how long to keep it in the bottles to build up carbonation, and then, of course, what flavorings to use,” Pees says. Those flavorings took time and thought. Kombucha’s best-selling brand, GT’s Kombucha, has a line full of fruit flavors such as guava goddess and mystic mango. Same, too, for LocalBucha, a kombucha out of Kansas City, which has several fruit flavors like red berry and pineapple cilantro. But Pees decided to shy away from most fruit flavors for the time being. “At first, I tried to stay away from the fruitier beverages because the sugars in the fruit act as a secondary fermentation, and therefore make a higher alcohol content in the end,” he says. “So, I tried to stay with a little bit more herbal flavors.” The herbal flavors that have made the cut so far are ginger and gingerose, plus Pees has both a plain raw type and a single fruit-flavored kombucha, grape. Last year, he began selling bottles of his local brew, first at The Casbah Market, which rented him space in its kitchen, then later at The Merc and at the Tuesday Lawrence Farmers’ Market. Because he also has two teaching jobs, he’s kept KANbucha small, spending an estimated seven hours a week actively working on the product. Since the Casbah’s closing early last year, he’s also narrowed his focus to just selling to the Merc — from which he buys all his non-scobys ingredients — for now. He says he’d like to go back to the Farmers’ Market, but that he’d prefer to sell on Saturdays. He also says he’d like to move into other locally owned businesses, but like, anything, it’s just time and money keeping him from expanding. Jez Luckett, the refrigerated buyer for The Merc, says that even in his chalkfull kombucha section, Pees’ little KANbucha measures up. “It really stood against some of the national brands that we bring in as well as the LocalBucha. I really enjoy the product and thought that it had qualities that really set it apart from some of the other ones that we have. His ginger is really exceptional,” says Luckett of his initial taste-test of KANbucha. “To have a local provider, two local providers at that, is really great. They all do have different subtleties to them. ... All of them have a place, and it seems that people have taken to them and chosen their favorite.”

Flash frying the key to healthy fried chicken dle. So when flipping the chicken, also rotate the pieces on the plate so that inner chunks are moved to the outside. ● To keep the avocado chunks intact, don’t toss them with the other salad ingredients. Just set them on the finished salads. ● Let the oil cool on the stove to room temperature. Then use a funnel to pour it back into its original container and screw the cap back on for easy disposal.

By Rocco DiSpirito For The Associated Press

I know what you did last weekend. You splurged on a big, juicy, extra-crispy piece of fried chicken — or maybe two — at that family picnic. And then you lamented the fact that you can’t eat it more often. Fried chicken is one of our best-loved comfort foods, but that incredibly greasy stuff remains off-limits if you’re trying to keep a tight rein on your weight. Unless, of course, you fry out the calories and fat in a flash. My recipe for chicken carnitas is so deceitfully delicious — full of flavor with a crisp outer crust — no one will suspect that it is low in calories. Compared to classic carnitas (which traditionally are made with pork), which can pack 1,180 calories and 62 grams of fat a serving, these babies come in at just 314 calories with 14 grams of fat. I don’t know about you, but I am impressed. My carnitas are a good example of the techniques I use to skinny-up many of the fattening foods we love. I start by microwaving skinless chicken thighs — a nearly fatfree but incredibly moist cut — until cooked through. Microwaving might seem unusual, but it reduces the amount of time the chicken must be cooked in oil, thereby cutting tons of calories. Next, I submerge the microwaved chicken pieces in a foamy egg white bath, then dredge them in a spicy mix of whole-wheat flour and cornmeal. Using egg whites (instead of whole eggs) cuts the fat, while the wholewheat flour and cornmeal add fiber and flavor. Now comes the low-cal magic: flash-frying. Since the chicken is already cooked, it needs only 12 seconds in 400 degree oil, as opposed to 10 to 15 minutes for traditional pan frying or deep-fat frying in 350 degree oil. By spending so little time in the oil, the chicken and breading absorb far less of it, yet the outside still has time to fry up to a perfectly feather-light crunch. The mouthwatering moisture comes from the meat’s natural juices instead of the oil fusing with the batter. And there’s still more to

They’re served with a salad of lettuce, red onions, cherry tomatoes and lime. No oil here either; the chunks of avocado you serve with each plate is all the fat you need for taste, and it’s a healthy fat. These guilt-free, juicy pieces of chicken truly do taste like the real thing, dispelling that age-old maxim that getting rid of the fat means getting rid of the flavor! Take this dish to your next summer picnic. You can whip it up in around 25 minutes, too.

Recipe tips ● For a spicy option, sprinkle 1 thinly sliced red or green chili on top of the salad or add a few dashes of hot sauce. ● Microwave the limes on high for 15 seconds before you cut and squeeze them. This helps you get every last bit of juice out of each one. ● Use your frying thermometer exactly as directed

1 small red onion, halved and thinly sliced 5 limes Salt 2 quarts grape seed or corn oil 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken thighs Ground black pepper 2 1/4 tablespoons Goya Adobo seasoning (available in the Hispanic foods section), divided 2 egg whites 2 1/2 tablespoons sweet Hungarian paprika 1/4 cup fine-ground yellow cornmeal 3/4 cup whole-wheat flour 4 cups chunked iceberg lettuce (2inch pieces) 16 cherry tomatoes, quartered 1/2 ripe Hass avocado, peeled and cut into 8 chunks 16 sprigs fresh cilantro

Place the sliced red onions in a small stainless steel bowl. With a fine grater or zester, zest the skin of 1 lime over the onions. Slice the zested lime as well as three additional limes in half, then squeeze the juice over the onions. Add a pinch of salt, then mix. Submerge the onions in the juice; use the squeezed limes as a weight to push down any onions sticking out of the juice. Cover the onions with a tight-fitting lid and refrigerate. Marinate the onions in the juice for as long as possible, at least 15 minutes or up to 3 days. Meanwhile, pour the oil into a large (at least 6-quart) heavy pot. There should be at least 2 inches of oil in the pot. Clip a deep-frying thermometer to the side of the pot according to the manufacturer’s directions. Set the heat to medium and heat oil to 400 F. Do not cover the pot. Cut each chicken thigh into 4 to 5 even chunks. Arrange the chunks on a microwave-

kle of kosher salt and cayenne. I then set that over some arugula (the bitter greens are a nice contrast to the sweet bananas) on a slice of sourdough. A final topping of shredded manchego and my so-very-not-Italian bruschetta was ready for the oven. The result? Oddly, unexpectedly good. Seriously. It’s the perfect open-face sandwich to accompany a salad for a summer lunch or light dinner. And it’s ready in no time.

Heat the oven to 450 degrees. Slice the banana in half crosswise, then slice each piece in half lengthwise to create a total of 4 pieces. Place the banana slices in a small bowl, then drizzle with the lime juice and olive oil. Gently toss the bananas to coat, then set aside. Top each slice of bread with half of the arugula, then set 2 bananas slices over each. Sprinkle each with a bit of cayenne and salt, then half of the cheese.

A little fat gives Salmon with Shiitake Hash a lot of flavor For The Associated Press

Though relatively high in fat — especially compared to most white fish — salmon is a great choice for a healthy diet. That’s because salmon’s fats fall mostly in the goodfor-your-heart unsaturated category. Which is a happy coincidence, because that fat happens to be key to salmon’s moist texture and rich, indulgent flavor. It also makes it a breeze to cook. The oils in salmon make it hard to overcook and dry out. So for a simple and healthy summer dinner, we’ve paired salmon with a mushroom

safe plate and season both sides with pepper and 1/4 tablespoon of the Adobo powder. Microwave on high for 1 1/2 minutes. Turn each piece of chicken over, then microwave on high until the chunks are just cooked through, about another 1 to 2 minutes, depending on your microwave. Let the chicken cool to room temperature. Put the egg whites in a bowl and beat with a fork until just foamy, about 1 minute. In a separate wide and shallow bowl or cake pan, combine the remaining 2 tablespoons of Adobo powder, the paprika, cornmeal and flour. Add the cooled chicken pieces to the egg whites and toss to coat well. One at a time, lift the chicken pieces from the egg whites and transfer to the flour mixture, turning each to coat thoroughly. Let the chicken sit in one layer over the flour mixture. Wash and dry your hands thoroughly prior to assembling the salad. Place the iceberg chunks in a bowl and add the cherry tomatoes. Drain the lime juice from the onions (reserving the juice) and add the onions, a dash of salt and 2 tablespoons of the reserved lime juice to the lettuce and tomatoes. Toss to dress evenly. Divide the salad among 4 serving plates. Divide the avocado pieces between the salads. Working in 4 batches, fry the chicken in the oil until deep golden brown, about 12 seconds. Using metal tongs or a slotted metal spoon, remove the chicken pieces from the oil and transfer them to a plate with either a wire rack on top or paper towels to drain off any excess oil. Divide the chicken between the salads, then top each with 4 sprigs of cilantro. Slice the remaining lime into 4 wedges and serve one with each salad. Serves 4.

Butter and bananas add fresh take to bruschetta

Because why not bananas? Admittedly, they are an unusual choice for bruschetta. But as I stared down a heap of soon-to-be-brown bananas and considered their sometimes savory uses elsewhere in the world, I couldn’t think of a good reason not to try them on a simple summer bruschetta. Like potatoes, bananas are starchy, meaning they do a nice job of absorbing other flavors. The difference is the sugar content. But making that work in a savory dish is just a matter of balance. Add some heat, some salt, some acid and it should be good to go. So that’s where I started.

SALMON WITH SHIITAKE HASH 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided 6 ounces shiitake mushrooms, stemmed and sliced 2 shallots, chopped 1 small red onion, chopped 2 small red potatoes, grated 2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce Ground black pepper, to taste Four 4-ounce salmon fillets 1 scallion, thinly sliced

In another large saute pan over medium-high, heat the remaining tablespoon of olive oil. Cook the salmon fillets for 4 to 5 minutes per side, or to desired doneness. Serve each piece of salmon with the shiitake hash. Top everything

TWO YEARS AGO Lawrence resident Elliot Pees, shown above and below right, began making kombucha, a fermented tea touted for its possible health benefits. The tea, which Pees calls KANbucha, is available for purchase at The Merc, 901 S. Iowa.

KAN-DO KOMBUCHA Lawrence resident adds version of healthy tea to local market By Sarah Henning

Despite its strange name, kombucha, a fermented tea, has become comparable to soda for the healthy set. It’s a sweet-yet-sour fizzy drink — pronounced kom-boo-cha — that provides refreshment and a certain peace of mind for those interested in protecting the bacteria of the gut through the drink’s copious amounts of probiotics. Started in China centuries ago as a run-ofthe-mill fermented beverage, bottles of the drink are now sold around the world by the millions. There are all sorts of national and regional brands, all made from different types of tea (oolong, green, white, etc.), all with varying levels of tartness, sweetness, fermentation and fizziness. Some brands sweeten the raw tea with fruit puree, some use sugar, but most still have a tartness to them that can’t be missed, love it or hate it. And Elliot Pees is banking on people in Lawrence loving it. Pees is the creator of a brand of the drink made here in Lawrence called KANbucha. He’s got four flavors, sold currently at The Merc, 901 S. Iowa, and he’s got plans to expand at some point to selling at other locations. Two years ago, Pees was sitting down with his sister, Anna, enjoying a nice visit from his then-Austin-based sibling. During her stay, Anna introduced him to a batch of artisan kombucha, made by a Texas woman. “She was the first one I had tried it from, and then I tried the commercial brands,” says Anna, who now lives in Manhattan. “The

It is a very, very popular category for us. It’s a drink that a lot of people are being introduced to and enjoying a lot more.” —Jez Luckett, the refrigerated buyer for The Merc, on kombucha commercial brands are more carbonated, and they tend to be a lot stronger, where hers was much more mellow. It was just a softer kombucha.” Pees loved the taste and the health benefits and thought others in Lawrence might like it, too. Turns out, after talking to a friend who worked at The Merc, he was right. According to the friend, kombucha was one of the hottest sellers in the refrigerated division at the market. “It is a very, very popular category for us,” confirms Jez Luckett, the refrigerated buyer for The Merc. “It’s a drink that a lot of people are being introduced to and enjoying a lot more.” Pees began experimenting, using the “scobys” or mother mushroom from the Austin-based maker. A mother mushroom is found in apple cider vinegar and other fermented products, and it’s what gives kombucha both its probiotic stars and its sour taste. The probiotics provided by the drink are comparable to those live cultures found in yogurt, including lactobacillus bacterium, s. Please see KOMBUCHA, page 7B

Sweet cherry tomato tart flavored with feta cheese, bacon “THE FLYING FORK” “ T he tomatoes are here! The tomatoes are here! Or, more specifically, the tomatoes are in my neighbors’ backyard. And I am the lucky recipient of some of their overflow. And their garden, it is aplenty. They’ve been kind enough to give me a couple of huge bags of yellow cherry tomatoes, both the round and the pear kind, and I’ve been getting creative with ways to use them up. My favorite, so far, was a little cherry tomato tart that is as pretty as it is delicious. And to me, a good recipe is one that is not only delicious but also doesn’t cut into any of my precious lolling-about time, and this one qualifies in both categories. WINNING. For this recipe, you only need to assemble a few simple ingredients. Most importantly, you need some lovely fresh, homegrown tomatoes. I think the little ones are best for this, but if the bigger red ones are

22nd Annual


a blog by Megan Stuke all you have, they’d probably work, too. Besides the tomatoes, the world is your oyster. I decided to keep it simple. I used feta, fresh rosemary from my herb garden, a little salt and pepper, and bacon. Because nothing goes better with tomatoes than bacon. I used puff pastry for the shell A.) because I’m lazy, but more importantly B.) because puff pastry is delicious. You could make your own puff pastry, but that would cut into the aforementioned lolling-about time so I don’t really recommend it.

1 box puff pastry (2 sheets) 3 cups sweet cherry tomatoes Sprig of fresh rosemary 4 or 5 strips of bacon, preferably the thickcut kind 1 small tub of feta (or goat cheese, or blue cheese, or whatever makes your heart go pitty-pat) Olive oil 1 egg Salt and pepper

First, preheat the oven to 415 degrees and prep a cookie sheet with cooking spray. Then press the puff pastry onto it. Use both sheets and connect them end to end the long way to get it to cover the whole sheet. (My cookie sheets are large, so if yours are smaller you might want to just do two separate, smaller tarts). Cut your tomatoes in half and cook the bacon, and no one will know if you eat one piece just right there.

Besides the tomatoes, the world is your oyster. I decided to keep it simple. I used feta, fresh rosemary from my herb garden, a little salt and pepper, and bacon.” Crumble or cut the bacon into large hunks. Then, score around the edge about an inch-and-a-half from the outside. Give the crust a light brushing with olive oil, and fix an egg wash to paint on the outer crust area so it will be nice and brown. Parbake the crust for five to eight minutes. If you don’t parbake, you might end up with a soggy bottom on your tart, and no one wants a soggy bottom. Then cover the crust with the tomatoes, inside the scored area. Sprinkle on the cheese, rosemary, and bacon. Salt and pepper, and then pop it back in the oven for 15 minutes, or until everything is baked and toasty and golden.

You can cut it into small pieces and serve it as an appetizer, or bigger ones for a main dish. It’s so pretty, though, it’s hard for me to cut it at all. I just want to stare at it and pet it and tell it how beautiful it is. This is great for a brunch or a picnic or a little summer party. Or, you can just make one and sit in front of your television and eat it. It’s a great way to highlight those most special of summer treats — the homegrown tomatoes. Bless their juicy little hearts. — Read more of Megan Stuke’s Flying Fork at

We share a house, and that’s about it. Years ago, girly magazines were just pictures. Today, there is streaming video of real people who call you by name and can even contact you. After I read the conversations my husband had with other women, any intimacy went out life is ruined. I feel like I’m aim- the window.

Guys need to Stepfather of a Train Wreck Dear Stepfather: Is the father of this child capable of caring for her? If so, you should encourage him to ask for custody. Barring that, you and your wife ought to consider petitioning for guardianship of your granddaughter. The best way to “rescue” this child is to get her out of her mother’s home and into a stable, loving environment. Please make every effort to do so. Dear Annie: My husband and I have been together for 25 years, and the entire marriage has consisted of his continuous lies about money, gambling and drinking. The latest adventure is his obsession with Internet porn and singles websites. We attended counseling individually and as a couple. He knew these things were ruining

‘Truck Stop’ goes nowhere When the road itself becomes your destination, are you going anywhere at all? Some years back I read an article that claimed that at any given moment there are more people driving, working, eating and resting on America’s interstates than in many of America’s states. It described a transient 51st state in constant motion with a society and economy all its own. “Truck Stop, Missouri” (9 p.m., Travel) offers a peek at one such nondestination, a gas station emporium featuring 12 related businesses midway between St. Louis and Kansas City, Mo., on Interstate 70. Like any prodigal son, Joe Bechtold was having a grand time in Australia before he was called back to run the family’s truck stop. One gets the sense that he’s paying for some past transgression in this vehicular purgatory. But he makes the best of it. During the course of the first “Truck Stop,” we meet the resident tattoo artist, whose parlor has become a favorite spot for folks who live in this corner of the world. One of his customers is a 77-year-old self-described biker chick eager to sport a new birthday tattoo. The owner of the truck stop’s antiques emporium meets a character who would not be out of place in Mayberry, who tries to pawn a $5 fishing pole for $50 by claiming that it’s enchanted and guaranteed to catch a fish. A huge cow gets loose in the parking lot and a couple of teenagers get chased off the premises for using their car for what used to be called a “petting parlor.” There’s little doubt that “Truck Stop, Missouri” might yield great stories or even drama. But this is reality television, where all of the characters are “characters” in the sense of being quirky for a few seconds at a time but decidedly one-dimensional and undeveloped. In a real drama, we’d get to know Joe as more than a talking head, and we’d learn what drove people to shop at a truck stop instead of a downtown. What motivates teenagers to have sex in a public parking lot in broad daylight? Where did that Snuffy Smith character with the fishing pole come from? Where is he going? Or is he, like his fishing pole, a magical illusion? It would take a singular vision, and something called a script, to breathe some life into these potentially interesting figures.

Tonight’s other highlights ● Cat Deeley hosts two hours of “So You Think You Can Dance” (7 p.m., Fox). ● “Wonders of the Universe” (8 p.m., Science) ponders the human need for a sense of time. ● A festering wound on “Royal Pains” (8 p.m., USA). ● A once proud news division promotes superstition on “Primetime” (9 p.m., ABC). ● A haunted tycoon on “Necessary Roughness” (9 p.m., USA). ● A friendly rivalry on “Happily Divorced” (9:30 p.m., TV Land). ● An interview gets out of hand on “Rescue Me” (9 p.m., FX). ● A double-cross gets a woman “Locked Up Abroad” (9 p.m., National Geographic) in Thailand. Cult choice Medieval history gets a once-over in the 1975 comedy “Monty Python and the Holy Grail” (9:05 p.m., IFC).

Dear Annie: I married my wife, “Debbie,” more than a decade ago. I genuinely believe we were brought together by divine providence. The only thing that troubles me is our kids — Debbie’s children from her first marriage. They didn’t get off to a great start — the biological father is a deadbeat dad, philanderer, alcoholic and a repeat-offender criminal. I wish I had been there from the start, but that’s the way it goes. I’ve had a lot of catching up to do. Debbie’s son is terrific — smart, friendly, talented and putting himself through college. The daughter, however, is a walking soap opera. She’s had two kids (one at age 16), several abortions, multiple divorces and broken relationships, and she’s usually strung out on pills and pot. Her current boyfriend is a married man. The oldest granddaughter lives with her father, who married someone else and has built a solid family. The younger granddaughter (age 11) lives with her mother. The kid does all the cooking, housekeeping and grocery shopping. My stepdaughter even tried to get the girl to fake a urine sample for a drug test. My wife and I are at the end of our rope. We cannot endure anymore of this woman’s drama. We know we can’t fix her, so right now, all we want to do is rescue our granddaughter before her
