MPORIA — After Judge Lee Fowler calls her name, Jody McKinsey strides to the front of the large Lyon County courtroom. McKinsey, 24, of Emporia, hands Fowler a small book that operates as her daily planner. She stands there looking up at the judge as he thumbs through the book. Fowler likes what he sees in the planner, and he’s happy about the report he received an hour earlier from a probation officer about McKinsey, who is serving a probation sentence for marijuana possession. She’s obtained a sponsor for drug treatment. She’s working full time, and she’s enrolled in classes for later this month at Flint Hills Technical College. “Everything looks pretty good. You’ve gone to all your meetings,” Fowler says. “I’m going to move you into phase two.” Immediately, the other defendants there

It’s a reminder that I’m on the right track, and I’m doing the right thing,” said McKinsey, who said participating in the court in the month since her conviction has allowed her to renew her focus on her two young children and her career. “It’s a dramatic change. It was pretty much a 180.” The positive reinforcement is not typical for a court setting, but Fowler’s drug court is an intensive probation program aimed at reducing substance abuse among drug offenders, keeping them out of jail and prison and making them productive members of society.

City auditor encourages policy U.S. downgrade raises anxiety — for distribution of rate dollars DEBT RATING

but what exactly does it mean?

By The Associated Press

The real danger from the downgrade of U.S. government debt by Standard & Poor’s isn’t higher interest rates. It’s the hit to the nation’s fragile economic psyche and rattled financial markets. S&P’s decision to strip the U.S. of its sterling AAA credit rating for the first time and move it down one notch, to AA+, deals a blow to the confidence of consumers and businesses at a dangerous time, economists say. The agency is “striking at the

heart of what makes the global economy tick,” says Chris Rupkey, chief financial economists for the Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ. “It isn’t just dollars and cents.” A look at this downgrade, and downgrades in general — and what they mean:

Q: A:

What did Standard & Poor’s do?

The ratings agency downgraded its rating on the federal government’s long-term debt one level from

the top AAA grade to AA+. Long-term debt includes notes and bonds that come due in more than one year. They have terms ranging from two to 30 years. Short-term debt includes Treasury bills that have terms ranging from a few days to 52 weeks. The rating on the government’s short-term debt was not downgraded. Of the $9.4 billion in publicly traded U.S. government debt, 72 percent is longterm.

You probably already know that those water and sewer bills you pay to the city of Lawrence likely will be a bit higher next year. City commissioners at their meeting Tuesday are expected to finalize 2 percent increases for both water and sewer rates for 2012.

city’s legal affairs in line. In 2012, the city is budgeted to take $3.08 million the city receives in water and sewer rates and disperse it to other city departments. That fact isn’t particularly unusual. Cities across the country make similar types of transfers, but now the practice in Lawrence is drawing concern after the city auditor in 2008 highlighted that the city has no policy for determining how many rate dollars ought to be diverted. Three years later, the city still doesn’t have a policy.

Debt CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1A

Q: What does a downgrade mean? A: A downgrade is a warning to buyers of bonds and other debt that the chance that they won’t get their money back has increased, however slightly. In theory, downgrades should lead to higher borrowing costs for the issuer (in this case, the government) since investors demand a higher interest rate if they’re taking a bigger risk.

Q: Does it mean U.S. interest rates will go up? A: The 10-year Treasury note is considered the basis for all other interest rates, so higher rates on that and other long-term U.S. debt could lead to borrowing costs on everything from mortgages to car loans. That would also make it more expensive for state and local governments, companies and consumers to borrow money. But it’s not clear that S&P’s downgrade will have an effect on rates.

cult, comprehensive cuts were pushed to the future. S&P also notes that the possibility of new revenue, for instance from tax increases, appears more remote than before. The rancor around the agreement also made it more clear how far apart Democrats and Republicans are. “Our opinion is that elected officials remain wary of tackling the structural issues required to effectively address the rising U.S. public debt burden,” S&P said. Q: What did the other ratings agencies do? A: The two other major agencies haven’t taken action yet. Moody’s Investor Service has said it might downgrade the U.S. rating, but its chief economist noted Friday that Treasury securities “are still the gold standard.” Fitch Ratings said last week that the agreement on budget cuts was an important first step but “not the end of the process.” Q: How many times has the U.S. been downgraded below AAA? A: Never. The S&P has given the U.S. a AAA rating since 1941. The U.S. and has only faced the threat of a downgrade once. In 1995, when Bill Clinton was president, a similar default loomed and the credit rating agencies warned of a downgrade. At the time, the country had $4.9 trillion in debt — nearly $10 trillion less than now. Once Congress resolved that debt crisis a year later, the credit agencies removed their warning. Q: How has a downgrade affected other countries? A: In May 1998, S&P knocked Belgium, Italy and Spain from AAA to AA. A week later, their 10-year rates had barely budged. In some cases, fell. A week after S&P took Ireland’s AAA rating away in March 2009, 10-year rates in that country had fallen 0.18 percentage points. Q: How long might it take for the U.S. to regain a AAA rating? A: Analysts say it could be tough for the U.S. to regain the AAA rating soon especially given its current economic challenges. S&P officials implied that it will take years to see a meaningful change in the U.S. fiscal situation and in the government’s ability to cut the budget.

CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1A

“I would hope one gets implemented soon,” City Auditor Michael Eglinski said. It may just sound like a paper-pushing thing, but proponents of a policy say it is needed to ensure that water and sewer rates aren’t used as a way to pay for services that really ought to be supported by taxes. “It would add more accountability to the process,” said Bobbie Flory, executive director of the Lawrence Home Builders Association. “When people don’t know where the money is going or how it is being used, then we become uneasy.” The home builders have taken an interest in the issue as they battle against a proposed 11 percent increase in city fees charged when new homes hook onto the city’s water and sewer system. The one-time fees, which are set to go up by about $340, also will be decided at Tuesday’s meeting. City Manager David Corliss said he is confident the city’s rate money is being used appropriately. Corliss said many cities make similar transfers under the premise that a city-owned utility department benefits from city services. And since a cityowned utility department doesn’t pay any taxes or franchise fees, it ought to transfer some of its rate money back to the general government. Corliss said some of the bigger costs in Lawrence involve the time and material the city’s Public Works Department spends on fixing streets after a water main break. But he said other city departments should be reimbursed for services provided to the utility department, such as computer services, legal services, payroll services and a host of other administrative functions. “We believe it is appropriate for the utility to pay some money related to helping us cover those costs,” Corliss said. Flory said she agrees some transfers are appropriate. “But it would be helpful to have a policy that sets some parameters,” Flory said. Corliss in past years has agreed with Eglinski’s recommendation that a policy should be created. But Corliss last week said creation of a policy is time-consuming because he wants it to be comprehensive. He said he’s directed staff to create a policy that looks at how much the utility would pay the city if it were an investor-owned utility that is charged taxes and franchise fees. Corliss said he now expects to present a policy to city commissioners in the fall. Some commissioners said they thought such a policy would be helpful, especially since the amount of the transfers has been on a steady increase since 2007. “I know I have had quite a few questions about the transfer in my own mind,” said first-term City Commissioner Hugh Carter. “It is something I have told myself that I need to learn more about.” Eglinski currently is working on a new audit that will examine the transfer topic and other financial issues. When he last studied the issue, Eglinski compared Lawrence to 16 other university communities. He found Lawrence transferred a larger percentage of its fee and rate dollars than any of the other cities. City commissioners meet at 6:35 p.m. Tuesday at City Hall. — City reporter Chad Lawhorn can be reached at 832-6362. Follow him at Twitter.com/clawhorn_ljw.

Police shooting death sparks riot

budget up for approval

The gritty north London neighborhood of Tottenham exploded in anger Saturday night after a young man was shot to death by police. Two patrol cars, a building and a double-decker bus were torched as rioters clashed with officers in front of the Tottenham Police Station, where people had gathered to demand “justice” for the death of a 29-year-old killed in an apparent gunfight. Sirens could be heard across the city as authorities rushed reinforcements to the scene. In Tottenham, shop windows were smashed as residents looted the stores, pushing shopping carts full of stolen goods down the street. Officers in riot gear and on horseback pushed up against the demonstrators. A witness put the number of demonstrators at between 400 and 500. Police said there were about 300 people gathered.

Syria promises free election The Syrian military tightened its suffocating siege on the city of Hama on Saturday in its drive to crush the main center of the anti-regime uprising in the country, even as the foreign minister promised that free parliamentary elections would be held by the end of the year in a gesture of reform. Like previous reform promises, the new announcement is unlikely to have much resonance with Syria’s opposition, which says it has lost all confidence in President Bashar Assad’s overtures. The four-year term of the current parliament expired earlier this year and Assad is expected to set a date for new legislative elections before the end of 2011. Foreign Minister Walid al-Moallem pledged to press ahead with reforms and said the new parliament “will represent the aspirations of the Syrian people.” “The ballot box will be the determining factor and it will be up to the elected parliament to review adopted draft bills to decide on them,” he said during a meeting he held with Arab and foreign ambassadors in Damascus. 3 | LIBYA

Rebels launch offensive, aim for coast Rebels launched a new offensive Saturday out of their stronghold in Libya’s western mountains, battling regime forces in a drive toward the heartland of Moammar Gadhafi’s rule on the Mediterranean coast. Opening a new front, the rebels are aiming to break a monthslong deadlock and eventually fight their way to the capital, Tripoli. Booms of shelling and rocket fire echoed from the front lines, centered around the town of Bir Ghanam, where the rebel force backed by tanks fought Gadhafi’s troops much of the day. Later, witnesses saw flattened buildings presumably targeted in NATO airstrikes and three smoldering government tanks in the town. Rebels are hoping for a breakthrough in the far west of Libya, frustrated with the stalemate in the center of the country, where their underequipped forces have been unable to budge the battlelines despite five months of NATO airstrikes on Gadhafi’s military. Rebels control most of the eastern half of country, while Gadhafi’s regime holds most of the west, centered around Tripoli.

REV. PETER LUCKEY SPEAKS to a crowd from the front entrance of Plymouth Congregational Church, 925 Vt., during an interfaith prayer vigil on Saturday to lament the closing of the Lawrence office of Social and Rehabilitation Services.

Faith leaders show SRS support at vigil By Shaun Hittle sdhittle@ljworld.com

ONLINE: Watch the video at LJWorld.com

Faith leaders from across the Lawrence community spoke at a prayer vigil Saturday morning at Plymouth Congregational Church, 925 Vt., to support keeping the Lawrence Social and Rehabilitation Services office open. “We want (state officials) to feel the weight of the responsibility to the vulnerable,” said Moussa Elbayoumy, who spoke to about 60 attendees as a representative of the Islamic Center of Lawrence. Elbayoumy

was joined by speakers from the Jewish, Unitarian, Catholic and other Christian communities in Lawrence. The potential closing of the SRS office has remained a hot topic locally after state officials announced July 1 the closure of the local office — along with eight others in Kansas — as a cost-saving measure. Social service advocates and community officials say the closure will have a significantly negative effect on access to services for the disabled and needy. By design, Saturday’s vigil was held about the same time as a controversial prayer event in Houston, called “The

Response: A Call to Prayer for a Nation in Crisis,” which Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback attended. Rev. Peter Lucky, pastor at Plymouth, said the local vigil was designed to highlight local interfaith support for the SRS office. “This is what prayer looks like for us,” he said. “This is where we need to be paying attention.” — Reporter Shaun Hittle can be reached at 832-7173.

Pay increases for Lawrence school district employees are in the works, as a $138.5 million spending plan goes up for approval Monday night. Members of the Lawrence school board plan to conduct a public hearing at 6:30 p.m. before formally approving their annual budget for 2011-12. The hearing and the district’s regular business meeting will be conducted at district headquarters, 110 McDonald Drive. Also up for approval: ● A new master agreement governing pay and working conditions for the district’s 926 licensed educators, an agreement that would mandate pay raises in two phases: a $250 bump in base salary, payable beginning with the September paychecks; and a $1,000 check, issued just before Christmas. ● Pay raises for classified employees, including custodians, maintenance workers, food service employees, off ice staffers and others. As a group, such employees would receive what amounts to a pay raise of 3.3 percent, the same general level as for teachers. And, like teachers, 20 SCHOOLS percent of the raise would be applied to the base wage, and 80 percent would come as a one-time payment, just before Christmas. ● Pay raises for administrators, working both at district headquarters and in district buildings. The same general formula applies here, too, with compensation proposed to go up by a total of 3.3 percent. Administrators each would get an increase to base salary of $210, plus a onetime payment of $788. Administrators also would work and be paid for a full year, as the district proposes to restore the five days of work for this year that had been eliminated last year through mandatory furloughs. Taken together, the pay increases would cost the district nearly $2.1 million of the $3.1 million it must spend from one of its contingency funds by the end of June. State law mandates that the contingency fund — essentially a district savings account — must be reduced by that much so that the total remaining amounts to only 6 percent of the district’s operating budget, rather than 10 percent. District leaders regard the spending as a worthwhile investment in a key resource: personnel.

Designers had answers for some questions, but not others, displaying the fluidity of some of the features of the $19 million expansion approved by voters last year. Lawrence mechanic Austin C.

Turney said that the presentation was informative and that he understood the design “a lot better than before.” Public forums will continue throughout the design process, Huesemann said.

School board member questions report By Mark Fagan mfagan@ljworld.com

As a new member of the Lawrence school board, Rick Ingram wants to be sure a set of volunteer advisers is working with proper information when it comes to grappling with the future of elementary schools in Ingram the district. He worries that the information being used as a foundation for future deliberations is shaky and could lead to future conclusions and actions — decisions to pursue a bond issue or close more schools — destined to crumble.

Schools CONTINUED FROM PAGE 3A

“Your mission is to retain your best employees, and make sure they feel like they’re valued,” said Kyle Hayden, the district’s chief operations officer. “We want to maintain the relationship, or improve it, as best we can through the annual compensation process. That’s the goal.” The raises all would be financed through the district’s annual budget, proposed to have $138.5 million in expenditures. That total

“That describes it perfectly,” Ingram said Friday, as he worked on a presentation to be delivered Monday to fellow board members, at the end of the board’s regular business meeting. His analysis will cover a report the Lawrence Elementary School Facility Vision Task Force made to the board back in February. That report, endorsed by three current members of the board and four who departed in July, concluded that the district should close Wakarusa Valley School and proceed with planning for the closure of two to three more schools through consolidation. Spurred by the report, the previous board closed Wakarusa Valley and appointed the 26-member Central and East Lawrence Elementary School Consoli-

dation Working Group. The group is assigned to meet through February and recommend just how the consolidation should be accomplished. Ingram, a professor of psychology at Kansas University, says he went through the research used by the earlier task force to reach its conclusions and says that some of the research was misinterpreted. His goal: “To make sure that the assumptions we’re basing our decisions on is based on accurate information — an accurate interpretation of the evidence,” Ingram said. “I’m having trouble making the numbers add up.” His biggest concern: The report’s assertion that schools of between 300 to 500 students are best for the district. “Academic achievement

should be central to the decisions we’re making,” he said. “Those numbers were divorced from academic achievement consideration.” Ingram “questions” whether evidence supports larger schools being better for education and wants to be sure the board — and the public — knows what it’s pursuing during the coming months and years. “If the district is serious about a bond issue, I don’t think it helps the case if the evidence it’s based on is not accurate,” Ingram said. “I think the public understands that it’s important to make accurate decisions.” Monday’s meeting will be at district headquarters, 110 McDonald Drive.

would be an increase of $18.8 million, or 15.7 percent, from the actual spending for the 2010-11 academic year that just ended. But district off icials emphasize that they don’t plan to spend all the money because they don’t expect it all to materialize. The district purposefully sets its anticipated expenditures high so that it can accommodate required spending — accompanied by any increased money from the state or federal government — in certain areas, such as for special education, or transportation, or at-risk programs. Property owners in the dis-

trict would pay a tax rate of 54.445 mills to support the district budget, down 0.201 mill, or about one-third of 1 percent. With each mill equal to $1 of tax for every $1,000 in a property’s valuation, the owner of a $150,000 home could expect to pay $979.43 next year in property taxes — enough to save $3.47, or about 29 cents a month. The budget also calls for $13.75 million being available through its capital outlay fund for purchasing equipment and taking on construction, renovation and maintenance projects. During Monday’s meeting, board mem-

bers are scheduled to receive a report on how the money could be spent.

benefit? Or is his work a well-meaning — but inefficient — attempt to help others?

‘Red flags’ While nothing points to Gruber doing anything illegal, “there are some red flags,” said Laurie Styron, an analyst for the American Institute of Philanthropy. Styron reviewed the foundation’s tax forms and was particularly concerned about the involvement of his brother’s business. “That looks really bad,” she said. Perry Schuckman, executive director of the Kansas Nonprofit Chamber of Service, says he also sees some problems with hiring a family member’s business. “It would be a direct conflict of interest,” Schuckman said. According to IRS tax code for nonprofits, such organizations “must not operate for the benefit of private interests,” such as those of its founder or the founder’s family. It’s not clear whether paying a family member’s business for fundraising services would break that law. A representative from the IRS declined comment, saying the agency does not discuss particular cases with the media. Another red flag for Styron was the creation of a second nonprofit that “tugs at the heart strings.” Support the troops? Help kids with cancer? Who wouldn’t want to help out, she said. Styron cited previous cases across the country where individuals have created multiple nonprofits as way to funnel donation money to themselves. Then there’s the very low percentage of money that actually supports the work of the nonprofit, which, according to the foundation’s IRS forms, is “to provide support and assistance to veterans of the U.S. armed forces.” Only 11 percent of the more than $500,000 collected went to members of the armed services — in the form of payments to the veterans hospitals in Topeka and Leavenworth and 200 care packages sent to troops. Schuckman said the nonprofit industry standard is closer to 80 to 90 percent. If that standard were applied to Gruber’s foundation, at least $400,000 of the funds should go to support troops or veterans.

MONEY TRAIL If you donate a dollar to the Purple Heart Veterans Foundation, here’s where it goes, according to the foundations 2010 IRS tax forms: ● 78 cents: Paid to a for-profit fundraising business, Independent Promotions. ● 11 cents: Given to veterans organizations and care packages to troops. ● 7 cents: Spent on “other expenses,” including $6,000 spent on a vehicle and nearly $15,000 spent on travel. ● 4 cents: Andrew Gruber’s salary.

‘On the up and up’ At his home, which doubles as his office, Andrew Gruber showed photos on the walls of veterans and members of the military. Many in his family served in the military, and he started a nonprofit as his way of giving back, he said. “Everything’s on the up and up,” Gruber said. “I started this to help out.” Gruber previously worked construction, but as the nonprofit demanded more time, it “kind of turned into a fulltime job,” he said. Gruber rattles off the names of local veterans facilities the foundation has assisted and said the foundation donated $1,000 to the local “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” house, being built for a wounded veteran in Ottawa. Gruber also said he didn’t see any problem with hiring his brother’s business to raise money, nor any problems with the high overhead for the foundation. “You’ve got to spend money to make money,” he said. And he’s just starting out, so the organization’s efficiency shouldn’t be measured against established nonprofits, he said. “They’ll look better next year,” said Gruber of the nonprofit’s financial statements. It’s unclear whether Gruber has any previous nonprofit experience. Styron said it often does take a couple years for nonprofits to get going, and her organization doesn’t even rate groups that haven’t been

around for at least three years. The IRS takes a similar view, she said, and it’s unlikely Gruber’s foundation would be audited — one avenue for revoking a nonprofit’s status. In addition to being registered with the IRS, the foundation is also registered with the state of Kansas. The Kansas Attorney General’s Office investigates nonprofits if a complaint is made, but Jeff Wagaman, Attorney General spokesman, said no such complaints have been made against either of Gruber’s foundations. “As a charity, we operate 100 percent within the laws governing charitable contributions,” Gruber said. Initially, Gruber answered questions about the foundation. However, he later said he was unwilling to cooperate further for this story. The Journal-World was unable to contact Scott Gruber, owner of the fundraising business. That business is registered with the state of Indiana, but there is not a listed phone number, and the company does not appear to operate a website. Steven Gruber, who runs the Kids Vs. Cancer Foundation, responded through email but declined a phone interview, and the website for the foundation does not list a phone number.

Little regulation Gruber’s situation highlights a murky area of the nonprofit world, and distinguishing what’s a legitimate nonprofit and what’s a moneymaking scheme is difficult, said Nichols of GuideStar. “There is not a ton of regulation for nonprofits,” she said. All that’s really required is some paperwork, reviewed by an accountant, that’s then filed with the IRS, which then decides whether to grant nonprofit status to groups. The best thing consumers can do to prevent potential shady practices is be educated about where you donate, Styron said. “Never give impulsively,” she said. — Reporter Shaun Hittle can be reached at 832-7173.

LAWRENCE • STATE

Court

Fowler tells defendants to come back the following week or in two to three weeks.

If you can motivate these people to be successful, you keep CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1A them out of prison. They Fowler, who has presided become taxpayers. They over the state’s first drug get rid of their court in Lyon and Chase addictions.” counties since it started in 2004, says it’s no coincidence other counties across the state, including Sedgwick and Reno counties, have implemented similar systems. “It’s the most effective probation program that exists in the state of Kansas as far as I know,” Fowler said. A drug court like Lyon County’s has drawn some interest recently among Douglas County court officials, but Chief District Judge Robert Fairchild said the county is pursuing grant funds for a similar program that focuses on domestic violence instead. Fairchild said in the future if a Douglas County judge shows interest in running a drug court, he would support one in the Lawrence area. “In a perfect world I would like to try it, but we’re not there yet,” he said.

How it works Fowler’s drug court is a product of a 2003 Kansas law that established a nonprison sanction of drug abuse treatment programs for certain offenders conviction of felony drug possession. The nation’s first drug court was established in 1989 in Florida, and Fowler says K a n sa s l a g s o t h e r s tate s i n u s i n g t h e m . Research about drug courts generally has found that most people who successfully complete their prog ra m a re l e ss l i ke ly to offend again and that drug courts can reduce recidivism compared with a normal probation program. In Lyon County, the drug court system is a team effort by the judge, probation officers and community treatment providers who help people on many fronts, including substance abuse, housing, employment and mental health issues. Fowler said on average 55 to 60 people are participating

— District Judge Lee Fowler at one time. It is divided into three phases: ● 30 to 90 days of assessment and primary treatment. Participants attend court and talk to Fowler every Thursday afternoon in addition to the development of an initial treatment plan, attending four Narcotics or Alcoholics Anonymous meetings a week, gaining or maintaining full-time employment, obtaining a sponsor and submitting to drug and alcohol testing. ● Six to 12 months of treatment, in which participants follow through on treatment recommendations and drugcourt appearances become less frequent than weekly. ● Up to six months of continuing care and graduation, in which participants write a graduation essay and are allowed to speak at a ceremony once they finish. As probation officers and care providers work to monitor the drug court participants throughout the week, they compile a weekly report summarizing what is happening with each client. Then Fowler meets with probation officers and care providers one hour before court each week to get an update and to help him decide what he will say in court to each person. “We get the whole puzzle instead of just pieces of the puzzle, which helps them in their success,” said Shelley Wright, executive director of Path to Recovery in Emporia. Then Fowler heads to the third floor of the courthouse to conduct court. Last Thursday, 25 people were on the docket. He called the cases one by one, and each client walked up to stand directly in front of the bench. Most cases are brief — between 30 and 60 seconds.

Honesty is the policy It wasn’t all fun. Fowler can penalize drug court participants with community service hours or even jail time for transgressions, such as failing drug tests or being late for appointments with officers. But the main thing Fowler doesn’t tolerate is lying. On Thursday he ordered a man to serve another week in jail — although he can be released to work — for lying to him one week earlier about a pill he took. The man said the person who gave it to him told him it was Adderall, but Fowler said a drug test confirmed methamphetamine in the man’s system. “The real issue is you have to be honest with the probation off icers, treatment providers and honest with the court while we’re trying to deal with this problem,” Fowler told the man. The judge says honesty is a cornerstone of the program. “We’ve got to get them honest before we can get them treated,” Fowler said. One person was working to take the judge’s advice more to heart this time around. Rachael Campbell, 37, of Emporia, said she made it through the program about two years ago. She did what was expected with her, but after being clean for 18 months, she relapsed into drug use for about six months. She was using even more until she was arrested, which she said saved her life. “My addiction delivered me to death’s doorstep,” Campbell said. This time, she’s taking her drug court experience more seriously. “I wasn’t being honest with myself,” said Campbell, who has enrolled in technical school and wants to transfer to Emporia State University eventually. “Now I’m being honest with myself and truly working to heal myself.” Resources Fairchild, Douglas County’s administrative judge, said a drug court system has been

on his radar, and District Judge Sally Pokorny, who was interested, even observed Fowler’s court last year. But they decided to seek federal grant funding for a similar domestic violence court, another frequent criminal problem the county’s judges see. Fairchild said substance abuse is likely a major contributor in domestic violence cases as well, so there would be some overlap. Douglas County’s judges are waiting until September to hear about results from their third application for grant funds to help with a domestic violence court. Plans are in the very early stages. While Fairchild said Douglas County likely would operate a drug court if another judge showed future interest, he also worried it could be taxing for probation officers, who are already busy keeping up with case loads. “It would be overwhelming for them,” he said. However, Fowler believes a drug court would be beneficial in Douglas County. The Lyon County judge said it does create work for community corrections probation officers because they prepare a report on each person due in court that week, but they are supervising people who would be on probation anyway. He still handles a full caseload outside drug court, which takes two hours of his week, and he believes the process is more efficient because the judge can sanction someone more quickly for probation violations in drug court. A normal probation violation can take weeks or even months, and he said not everyone makes it through drug court. “If you can motivate these people to be successful, you keep them out of prison. They become taxpayers. They get rid of their addictions,” Fowler said. “The other side of the coin is if they’re going to be screwups and violate their probation, we catch them earlier, and we can incarcerate them earlier if that’s what we need.”

BRIEFLY At least 1 dead after K-10 collision A head-on collision on K-10 in Lenexa killed at least one person early Saturday morning, according to the Kansas Highway Patrol. About 1:45 a.m., a vehicle was driving the wrong way in the westbound lanes when the vehicle struck another vehicle traveling westbound. The accident occurred on K-10, less than a mile west of Interstate 435. No other information about the accident has been released as of late Saturday evening. A spokesperson for the KHP said they are awaiting confirmation of family notification. According to the Kansas Department of Transportation, from 2000 to 2010, 19 people have been killed in traffic accidents on K-10 between Lawrence and Interstate 435.

Medicaid reform meeting scheduled

State leaders are looking to cut at least $200 million from the Medicaid program while improving services. They have put on public forums this summer in Topeka, Wichita and Dodge City seeking ideas on how to achieve that goal. The forums were attended by more than 1,000 people. “Moving forward, it’s my hope in Overland Park we can drill down into the details and receive more feedback on some of the ideas that were developed in the previous public meetings,” Colyer said. The state pays about $1.1 billion of the $2.8 billion Medicaid price tag. There are 324,000 beneficiaries, which includes children, pregnant women and people with disabilities. There are 8,104 Medicaid recipients in Douglas County. To reserve a spot at the forum in Overland Park, email rsvp@ks.gov or contact Alisha Kirby at (785) 296-2213.

Lt. Gov. Jeff Colyer announced Friday that the final public meeting on Medicaid reform will be Aug. 17. It will be from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. at the Overland Park Convention Center Exhibit Hall.

Groups gather to challenge Brownback’s policies By Scott Rothschild srothschild@ljworld.com

TOPEKA — Led by gay and women’s rights groups, about 150 people rallied on the Statehouse grounds Saturday, criticizing the policies of Gov. Sam Brownback. Meanwhile, Brownback was in Houston, participating in a high-profile prayer event put on by groups opposed to gay rights and abortion. At the Capitol rally, Dan Manning of Wichita, who was Brownback kicked out of the military for being gay, blasted Brownback for associating with people “who are praying for our demise.” “The God I know is a God of love and wants each and every one of us,” Manning said. “I have a message for Governor Brownback: We are not going away.” The rally was called by the Kansas Equality Coalition and the Kansas chapter of the National Organization for Women as “A Celebration of the First Amendment” in response to police interference during separate events that the groups had at the Capitol in June.

‘Time for us to pray’ The rally took on added significance, occurring on the same day that Brownback

attended “The Response,” a prayer event at Reliant Stadium that was called by Texas Gov. Rick Perry and hosted by groups that have been outspoken opponents of gay rights and abortion rights. Brownback was the only governor to accept Perry’s invitation, and Brownback’s staff said the governor would pay his own way there. But after publicity increased about the anti-gay sentiments of some of the groups, Brownback’s staff refused to confirm whether he was going. But Brownback did attend, spoke briefly and offered a prayer. He also embraced Perry, who is considering running for the Republican nomination for president, onstage. Brownback’s office later released a statement in which Brownback said leaders prayed during the Revolutionary War, Civil War and during civil rights fights. “We are in a difficult time again for our nation; now it is time for us to pray,” he said. At the Statehouse rally, Thomas Witt, chairman of the Kansas Equality Coalition, said, “I wonder if we’re going to see a Perry-Brownback ticket.” Those attending the rally at the Statehouse criticized Brownback over several issues, such as signing into law several anti-abortion measures, vetoing state arts funding and planning the closure of the state welfare agency office in Lawrence.

Lawrence sentiments Several Lawrence residents attended a prayer vigil in Lawrence earlier Saturday to support keeping open the Kansas Department of Social and Rehabilitation Services office, and then drove to Topeka for the rally. Two of those were Jake and Masha Kipp. Jake said Kansas has a tradition of moderate Republican and Democratic governors “who represent all the people, but this governor doesn’t.” Richard Sengpiehl of Lawrence said he was also upset about Brownback’s decision to close the SRS office. “It’s a question of priorities. His priorities haven’t been mine,” he said. Brownback and SRS Secretary Robert Siedlecki Jr. have said closing the off ice is needed to cut costs, but local advocates say it will result in vulnerable Kansans losing needed services. Kaylyn Wright and Leslie Goodwin, two Kansas University seniors, also attended the rally, saying Brownback’s approval of a bill establishing abortion clinic regulations and licensing prompted them to form a pro-choice organization called Speak for Choice. They said the law, which has been challenged in federal court, has nothing to do with protecting health but is designed to shut down clinics.

No police disruptions The rally was initially called after Capitol police got involved in two earlier events. During a rally June 24 on the Capitol grounds, police blocked members of the Kansas Equality Coalition from carrying U.S., Kansas and rainbow flags, saying that the flagpoles could be used as weapons. News reports later showed that groups in the past had been allowed to bring flags on the Statehouse grounds. On June 1, police interfered with a National Organization for Women news conference, saying that three spare tires that were being used as a prop had to be removed. The prop was in response to remarks by state Rep. Pete DeGraaf, R-Mulvane, who compared purchasing separate abortion insurance with carrying a spare tire in his car in case he had a flat. On Saturday, there were no police outside monitoring the event. The groups unfurled large U.S. and rainbow flags. Kurt Schueler, chair of the Lawrence-Douglas County chapter of the Equality Coalition, said he wanted to make sure that no one’s rights were limited. “We will not sit back and take it. We will not be denied our rights,” he said. — Statehouse reporter Scott Rothschild can be reached at 785-423-0668.

Perry’s day of prayer hints at presidential run By Thomas Beaumont and April Castro Associated Press Writers

HOUSTON — Texas Gov. Rick Perry sent a strong message to the nation’s evangelicals Saturday: He is a member of the important constituency for Republicans that he soon may call upon to help him secure the GOP presidential nomination. The state’s longest serving governor hosted what he called a national day of prayer, an event at Reliant Perry Arena that drew roughly 30,000 people and that was broadcast on cable Christian channels and the Internet nationwide, including in at least 1,000 churches. “Father, our heart breaks for America,” Perry said in 12 minutes of remarks that included prayer and Bible passages — but no direct mention of politics or his presidential plans. “We see discord at home. We see fear in the marketplace. We see anger in the halls of government and, as a nation, we have forgotten who made us, who protects us, who blesses us.” He asked Christians to turn to God for answers to the nation’s troubles and asked the audience to pray for President Barack Obama — though he did not use the Democratic incumbent’s name — as well as for the

American troops killed in the weekend attack on a U.S. helicopter in Afghanistan. The moment gave Perry a national spotlight before a pivotal voting group in the GOP nomination fight — in the early voting states of Iowa and South Carolina in particular — as he nears a decision on whether to run for president. His entrance into the field could shake up the contest because Perry could attract both social and economic conservatives at a time when the GOP electorate is unsettled with the current slate of candidates. Many have been campaigning for months and are trying to break out of the pack. As Perry held court in Houston, for instance, former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty and Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann were holding multiple campaign events each day in Iowa ahead of next weekend’s test vote, a straw poll that is a barometer for a campaign’s organizational strength five months before the state’s leadoff caucuses. Both have a

lot riding on the outcome. Perry has been talking with potential donors, GOP operatives and party leaders about a possible run. But he has been tightlipped about just when he would announce a decision, though he plans to visit at least one early-voting state — South Carolina — over the next week. He plans to keep what aides say is a long-held commitment to headline a conservative conference in Charleston, S.C., on Aug. 13, as well as meet with activists in the state scheduled to host the South’s first primary. Ministers long have been a valuable constituency in the early nominating campaign, especially in Iowa, where they formed an influential network for 2008 candidate Mike Huckabee’s caucus victory, and this year’s candidates are trying to make inroads. Perry’s audience Saturday was filled with people who sang with arms outstretched in prayer — and wept — as Christian groups played

music on stage. And Perry, himself, huddled on the stage in a prayer circle with several ministers who helped lead the event. It was Perry’s idea and was financed by the American Family Association, a Tupelo, Miss.-based group that opposes abortion and gay rights and believes that the First Amendment freedom of religion applies only to Christians.

SRS responsibility Local officials need to let issues related to the closure of Kansas Department of Social and Rehabilitation offices play out at the state level before stepping in with local solutions — or dollars.

I

t’s good that local officials are taking an active interest in maintaining services for local clients of the Kansas Department of Social and Rehabilitation Services. However, city and county officials shouldn’t be too quick to commit local taxpayer dollars to pay for services that should be the state’s responsibility. The closure of nine SRS offices across the state is beginning to get the attention of state legislators, including some Republicans, who may hold additional sway with the Republican administration of Gov. Sam Brownback. Senate Ways and Means Committee Chair Carolyn McGinn, R-Sedgwick, has asked SRS Secretary Robert Siedlecki for additional information about the planned closures and publicly rejected Siedlecki’s contention that closing the offices was necessary to meet a legislative mandate to cut SRS administrative costs by $1 million. McGinn, who was the lead budget writer in the Senate, said last week that SRS officials invited legislators to make the budget cuts but that the intention of legislators was for administrative cuts to be made at the state level, not by eliminating local offices. Douglas County commissioners have had several private meetings with their attorneys concerning the SRS situation. A plan seems to be in the works, but no details have been revealed. The Lawrence City Commission’s Tuesday agenda includes a public briefing on the SRS matter, which may shed some light on what local officials are contemplating. Local officials are right to monitor this situation closely, but they need to let it play out at the state level before making a commitment to help maintain local SRS services — especially any commitment that might involve local tax money. Unfortunately, that may take a little time. The Legislature’s Joint Committee on State Building Construction requested more information on the SRS closures last week, but the committee doesn’t plan to discuss that information and meet with SRS and Department of Administration officials until its next meeting in September. Legislators who are concerned about this issue need to press their concerns now and make sure that local SRS offices aren’t already closed before legislative leaders get around to calling SRS officials to account. The Lawrence SRS office was by far the largest office on the closure list, but eight other Kansas communities — and their state legislators — also are worried about how SRS services will be delivered to their residents after local offices are closed. This is a statewide issue that deserves statewide attention. SRS leaders made the decision to close these offices, apparently with little regard for how that decision would affect the delivery of services to thousands of Kansas residents. This problem is theirs to solve. It’s good of local officials to want to pick up this cause, but even though it feels like SRS officials are holding Lawrence hostage, we shouldn’t be too quick to pay the ransom.

From the Lawrence Daily JournalWorld for Aug. 7, 1911: “Quick action on the part of a ten-yearold boy kept the treacherous Kaw River YEARS from claiming another victim Saturday AGO afternoon. Several boys were swimming IN 1911 below the dam when one of them, Robert Wilson, got into water that was too deep for him and after vainly trying to swim ashore for a short time sank beneath the surface of the water. His companions on the bank saw him go down and one of them, Wilbur Brown, hastily procured a long pole that was lying on the dam and, swimming out into the water, had it waiting for the drowning youth when he came up.” — Compiled by Sarah St. John

Straw poll wields unreasonable power WASHINGTON — Being in politics, said Eugene McCarthy, is like coaching football: You have to be smart enough to understand the game and dumb enough to think it is important. The game of presidential politics is especially arcane in the cunning weirdness of the Ames straw poll, a quadrennial fundraising event for Iowa’s Republican Party. Republicans praise entrepreneurship, and in Iowa they practice what they preach. The poll, first staged in 1979, occurs Aug. 13. It will record the presidential preferences of persons transported to Ames by competing candidates, who will also buy their supporters’ $30 tickets. It would be naughty to compare this to a poll tax, but it does purchase the right to vote. Supporters will be fed, flattered and entertained in spaces the candidates rent for that purpose, this year paying a minimum of $15,000, and up to $31,000 for the best one. Ron Paul paid $31,000, which is good news about inflation: In 1999, George W. Bush paid $43,500. Paul wins many straw polls because his intense supporters nurse an implacable grudge against the Federal Reserve Act of 1913. The New York Times says Paul’s online fundraising event “Ready, Ames, Fire” added $550,000 to the $4.5 million he collected in the second quarter. Also, events seem to be validating his message, which is that the country’s financial

This year, the Ames contest of most consequence is between the tortoise and the hare — between former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty and current Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann. He would be much easier to elect than to nominate; regarding her, reverse that. If Pawlenty’s methodical longmarch-through-the-cornfields strategy pays off in Ames — that is, if he gets perhaps 4,000 votes — he can partially upend the national media narrative that has cast him as already a spent force. His understanding of the stakes is apparent in the fact that he is

investing $1 million in the Ames event — about one-fourth of the $4.2 million he raised in the second quarter. Pawlenty emphasizes, as tortoises will, the long run. His campaign believes Bachmann is potentially a flash in the pan whose campaign is brittle because of her propensity to say peculiar things (e.g., about Concord, N.H., the Founders and slavery, John Wayne). Pawlenty’s problem is the short run — between now and Saturday. If Paul finishes first or second, the political community will shrug: There he goes again, the Babe Ruth of straw polls. If Paul and Bachmann, in either order, capture the two top spots, Pawlenty’s campaign may be mortally wounded. If another candidate propelled by an intense faction — former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum, a favorite of evangelicals who in 2008 were 60 percent of Republican caucus participants — also finishes ahead of Pawlenty, the Ames circus will have destroyed the only one among the six candidates who bought space — and therefore are permitted to speak — at the event who has a realistic chance to be nominated and defeat Barack Obama. The six who have bought space are Pawlenty, Bachmann, Paul, Santorum, Herman Cain and Michigan Rep. Thad McCotter. Three other announced candidates are also on the ballot: Mitt Romney,

Newt Gingrich and Jon Huntsman. Adding to the zaniness of the Ames exercise is this: Polls indicate that the last piece of the Republican nomination puzzle, Texas Gov. Rick Perry, is nipping at the heels of frontrunner Romney. But Romney has not bought space in Ames and Perry is not on the ballot — although write-in votes are permitted. The Ames poll has not reliably predicted the winner of Iowa’s caucuses five months later, and the caucuses have been an uncertain trumpet regarding the winner of the nomination. In 1979, George H.W. Bush won the poll and the subsequent caucuses but lost the nomination to Ronald Reagan. In 1987, Pat Robertson won the poll, Bob Dole won the caucuses and Bush won the nomination. In 1995, Phil Gramm and Bob Dole tied in the poll, then Dole won the caucuses and the nomination. In 1999, George W. Bush won the poll, the caucuses and the nomination. In 2007, Mitt Romney won the poll, Mike Huckabee won the caucuses and John McCain won the nomination. In 2011, a purchased, or at least rented, small portion of the nominating electorate of the state that ranks 30th in population can profoundly influence the coming political choices of voters in the 49 other states. You can’t make such stuff up. And you wouldn’t want to. — George Will is a columnist for Washington Post Writers Group.

History lessons

For GOP, Obama is the problem Ladies and gentlemen, here he is, “your boy,” that “tar baby,” the president of the United States, Barack Obama. Ahem. The first title was bestowed upon Obama by political commentator Patrick Buchanan on Tuesday, the second by U.S. Rep. Doug Lamborn on the Friday before last, the third by the American electorate in November 2008. If the first two seem to cancel out the third, well, that’s the point. One hopes they will help the president understand something he has thus far refused to grasp about his political opposition. Namely, these people don’t want to be friends. They don’t want to compromise for the greater good. They don’t want to solve problems unless by problems you mean his continued tenancy in that mansion on Pennsylvania Avenue. They have not been coy about this. Rush Limbaugh said it (“I hope he fails”) when Mrs. Obama was still picking out a dress for the inauguration. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell said in November that, in a time of war and recession, his No. 1 goal is to deny Obama a second term. Yet somehow, the Obama brain trust, a term herein used advisedly, always seems caught off guard by the ferocity, velocity and fury of the response to him. They were surprised at the verbal and physical violence of the health-care debate, surprised at the hardiness of the birther nonsense, surprised by the stiff defense of the Bush-era tax cuts.

Leonard Pitts Jr. lpitts@miamiherald.com

The president is a bas“ketball fan, so surely he

knows it is sometimes necessary to throw an elbow on your way to the goal. This is one of those times.”

No, this is a new thing, repulsion at a visceral, indeed, mitochondrial, level. Obama’s denigrators are appalled by the newness of him, the liberality of him, the exoticness of him and, yes, and the blackness of him. “Your boy?” Really? Sure. Why not. Didn’t Rep. Lynn Westmoreland call him “uppity”? Didn’t the ex-mayor of Los Alamitos, Calif., send out an email showing the White House with a watermelon patch? See, here’s the thing: If, as is frequently said, Obama represents America’s future, what do they represent? You know the answer. Worse, they do, too. Still, what matters here are neither their feelings nor his. No, what matters is homeowners dispossessed of their homes, workers who can’t find work, sick people who can’t afford health insurance, American soldiers on patrol in hostile places. The president is a basketball fan, so surely he knows it is sometimes necessary to throw an elbow on your way to the goal. This is one of those times. His instinct to compromise, to work with the opposition to solve problems, is admirable. But Obama needs to understand: As far as they are concerned, they have no problem bigger than him.

Now, they are surprised the GOP would rather see the U.S. economy go off a cliff than surrender the aforementioned tax cuts for rich folks. So the debt ceiling gets raised in exchange for cuts to services for the poor, who shortsightedly failed to hire lobbyists. It is time Obama quit being surprised by the predictable, time he understood this is not politics as usual, not Ronald Reagan and Tip O’Neill snarling at one another by day and having drinks by night, like that old cartoon where the sheepdog and the coyote punch a time clock to signal the beginning — Leonard Pitts Jr., winner of the 2004 and end of their hostilities.

To the editor: Cicero, an old Roman, once said, “To be ignorant of what occurred before you were born is to remain always a child.” A cynical man (ahem), would ponder upon whether the Republicans have taken Cicero to heart and learned their historical lessons well. The first time the Republicans caused a nationwide economic collapse (Great Depression), it ushered in a 30-year-plus era of mostly Democratic Party rule, creating sweeping, positive economic security, benefiting the majority of Americans and created a thriving middle class, the envy of the world. So what were Republicans to do after they created their second nationwide economic collapse? Mustn’t repeat the “mistakes” of the past, letting President Roosevelt save the country and usher in decades of Democratic rule, powered by a grateful electorate. A cynical man might think that Republicans (remembering and learning from their history) have chosen to sabotage the present economic recovery at every turn, filibustering every Senate economic legislative proposal, creating no House economic legislation (besides cutting taxes, always, always, ALWAYS cutting taxes for millionaires/billionaires), creating fake crises like the recent debt ceiling circus, and repeatedly, constantly, endlessly shouting the lie that Obama caused this economic mess. While Republicans might be earning an “A” in history, forget not: 1) Democrats could figure out a way to stab themselves in the rear-end with a wet-noodle; 2) Most Americans seem too lazy to get off their rear-end and find the truth. God help our republic. Daniel Patrick Schamle, Lawrence

Drought hits corn hard in southwest Kansas GARDEN CITY — The drought of 2011 is hitting crops hard in southwest Kansas. The Garden City Telegram reports that the dry year in southwest Kansas has burnt up some fields early and small amounts of rainfall are doing little to alleviate drought conditions. Jay Garetson farms primarily in Haskell County. He says that it’s the driest year he’s seen and that his corn crop is “anywhere from bad to zero.” The Kansas Corn Commission released an updated July 26 report that pegged corn at 16 percent very poor, 18 percent poor, 32 percent fair, and 34 percent good to excellent Although corn may not produce much, much like the wheat harvest, the silver lining for the Garetsons is cotton. He said the cotton, which likes the hot, dry weather, looks excellent.

Bad Sports Denton, Texas, punks Bad Sports come to the Replay Lounge, 946 Mass., bringing the kind of high-speed punk music you need to start your week right. The band's love of classic rock riffing and ’70s punk bombast go a long way in making them a blast to listen to, and their high energy during shows makes them a band to watch. Songs like "Days of Denton" contain all the frustration and cooped-up energy that come with wanting to get out of town, and "Teenage Girls" is a jangling almostpop song with a nice hook. In all, the show should be a pleasant surprise to anyone just looking for something to do today. They're joined by Wax Museums and DJs Shaher & the Goat. The show starts at 10 p.m. and is $3.

KANSAS MEN’S BASKETBALL

KU’s Self honored at Illinois for Big Ten titles By Gary Bedore gbedore@ljworld.com

Ninth-year Kansas University basketball coach Bill Self returned to Champaign, Ill., on Friday for a banquet honoring his 2000-01 and 2001-02 University of Illinois Big Ten championship basketball teams. Several of Self’s former Illini players attended, including pros Deron Williams and Brian Cook.

“He (Self) gets personal with his people, and he takes over every room he enters,” Illini assistant coach Jerrance Howard told reporter Loren Tate of illinihq.com. Howard played for both of Self’s league title teams. “He was able to manage different personalities,” Robert Archibald noted to illinihq.com. Archibald played two seasons for current Oklahoma coach Lon Kruger at U of I and two for Self.

“It is easier to push yourself when the coach points out that it makes a difference. He might say that Cory (Bradford) got an open three because I got down the floor quick. Coach Self saw those things,” Archibald added. Parkland College coach Nate Mast, who played on the 00-01 team, added a memory of Self’s fabled Boot Camp. “We got to know coach Self early on when an open gym

turned into a conditioning session that no one on that team will ever forget,” Mast wrote in a f irst-person piece at illinihq.com. “We ran every different kind of sprint you could run on a basketball court, with no end in sight. Not to mention we weren’t in shape since this was preseason. More importantly, I Self won Big Ten think he wanted to see who had titles at Illinois in 2000-01 and Please see SELF, page 4B 2001-2002

TIGERS 4, ROYALS 3

Duffy suffers setback in K.C. loss

DETROIT’S MIGUEL CABRERA, LEFT, RUNS past Kansas City’s Brayan Pena while scoring a run in the third inning. The Tigers defeated the Royals, 4-3, on Saturday in Kansas City, Mo.

KANSAS CITY, MO. (AP) — Danny Duffy got another lesson in major league pitching Saturday night. The 22-year-old left-hander made his 14th big league start against Detroit Tigers ace Justin Verlander. Duffy knew he would have to keep the scoring down to have a Duffy chance, but he promptly walked two in the first inning and allowed both to score. The Tigers went on to beat the Kansas City Royals, 4-3. “I didn’t have very good com-

mand,” Duffy said. “I didn’t do my job. I didn’t locate very well. I’m really frustrated with myself right now. I didn’t keep my team in the game. “ Verlander (16-5) lasted ROYALS innings VS.

The big-right hander also improved

to 13-2 in his career against Kansas City, allowing just three runs on f ive hits with eight strikeouts. Duffy (3-4), meanwhile, needed 37 pitches just to get through the first inning. “I thought I threw some good pitches,” he said. “They were off the plate. I wasn’t nibbling. I wasn’t trying to make a perfect pitch. I didn’t locate as well as I normally do. That’s going to happen when you fall behind in the count as much as I did today. The pitch count is going to get up. “They only had five hits, but three walks,” he said. “That’s eight base runners right there. Please see ROYALS, page 4B

ST. JOSEPH, MO. — Jon McGraw is back for his fifth season with the Kansas City Chiefs and 10th in the NFL. That qualifies him as the elder statesman of the secondary. The defensive backfield may be one of the younger position groups at Arrowhead Stadium, but it’s also among the most talented. Lining up beside the 32year-old McGraw is second-year safety Eric Berry, who is 10 years younger. They’re joined by 25year-olds Brandon Carr and Brandon Flowers as legitimate shutdown cornerbacks. That quartet is a big reason the Chiefs went from a 4-12 club two years ago to a 10-6 playoff team last season. The Chiefs were a middle-ofthe-pack defense last season, but that was largely because they struggled to get penetration up front. The backfield yielded fewer than 220 yards passing per game, a significant improvement over the previous year, and a big reason why Kansas City went from 30th in total defense in 2009 to 14th last season. “We have guys back there who have been working hard,” Berry said. “We just want to keep working as a unit and keep that chemistry going. That’ll be a big plus.” Berry, a former Tennessee star, made 72 tackles and four interceptions last season, returning one of them for a touchdown. It’s precisely that kind of playmaking ability that made the Chiefs select him fifth overall in the 2010 draft and put him into the starting lineup every game his rookie season. “That last year had a lot to do with my growth, but at the same time there’s still more I can learn and more I can work on,” Berry said. “I learned a lot last year, but I still have a lot to learn.” That became painfully evident in the first round of the playoffs, when the Raven’s Joe Flacco gouged the secondary for 265 yards passing and a pair of touchdowns. Baltimore coasted to a 30-7 victory, a demoralizing way to wrap up a season in which the Chiefs far exceeded expectations. “It’s been a long, long offseason since our last wild card game,” Carr said. Carr reportedly contemplated offers from several other teams after the Chiefs placed a firstround tender on him, but the cornerback from Div. II Grand Valley State signed last week. One of the big reasons is that he wanted to keep building a defense that has taken significant strides under coach Todd Haley. Carr immediately resumed his place in the starting defense as soon as he was able to begin practicing. “I feel good. This whole offseason I’ve been training, doing drills, trying to simulate gametype situations and get ready to get out here,” Carr said after practice Thursday night.

Sanders, Sharpe, Faulk enter Hall By Barry Wilner Associated Press Writer

CANTON, OHIO — Prime Time has come to Canton — with an extra touch of gold. And a black do-rag. Deion Sanders strutted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Saturday night sporting a pair of gold shoes to go with the gold jacket emblematic of the special company he has become a part of. At the end of his riveting acceptance speech, he placed his ubiquitous do-rag on his hall bust. Neon Deion indeed. “This game,” Sanders repeated dozens of times, “this game taught me how to be a man. This game taught me if I get knocked down, I got to get my butt back up. “I always had a rule in life that I would never love anything that couldn’t love me back. It taught me how to be a man, how to get up, how to live in pain. Taught me so

Sanders joined Marshall Faulk in entering the hall in their first year of eligibility. Shannon Sharpe, Richard Dent, Chris Hanburger, Les Richter and Ed Sabol also were enshrined before an enthusiastic crowd of 13,300 — much lower than the usual turnout. With today’s Hall of Fame game a victim of the 4 1⁄ 2-month NFL lockout, Fawcett Stadium was half full. Not that Sanders needs a big audience. The dynamic cornerback and kick returner ran off a list of people who influenced him as smoothly as he ran past opponents, whether running back kicks or interceptions — or even catching passes when he appeared as a wide receiver, or dashing around the bases in the major leagues, including one World Series appearance. He spoke of promising his mother she could stop working in a hospital when he became a success,

COMMENTARY

Woods ‘close,’ but with tough task ahead By Marla Ridenour Akron Beacon Journal

PGA Tour-watchers might have heard Tiger Woods say he’s “really close” so many times that it no longer registers. But on Saturday after the third round of the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational, that pronouncement came instead from regular Woods’ practice-round partner Bubba Watson. A member of Woods’ threesome, Watson was undeterred by Woods’ 2-over-par 72 that left him at 1 over par and tied for 38th going into today’s final round at Firestone Country Club. After an 11-week injury layoff, Woods is playing his first tournament on the South Course, where he has won seven times. But he insists he’s not looking at the event as a tune-up for next week’s PGA Championship at the Atlanta Athletic Club. “He’s really close,” Watson said of Woods. “He could easily win by a bunch next week or shoot a low number tomorrow and move way up. “He talked about it yesterday in his interview, that he didn’t make putts. What he means are the momentum putts. When you’re out there six feet for birdie and you lip it out, your wind goes out for a second and you don’t have the momentum after hitting a great shot. His putting was off today, obviously.” Woods needed 33 putts in a four-bogey, two-birdie round, up from 27 on Thursday and 29 on Friday. His longest putt made was a 20-footer for birdie on No. 9. Woods said he’s been practicing on Bermuda greens at home and also when he played in Atlanta on Monday and is not used to Firestone’s bent grass. “I didn’t putt well again today, two horseshoes, three-putted 18, and then obviously made a bogey with a sand wedge there on 16, that’s 4 shots I just threw away right there,” Woods said. Most encouraging for Woods was that he didn’t hit a fairway on the front nine (going 0-for-7), but rebounded to hit 4-of7 on the back nine. For the week, he’s found the fairway on 17 out of 42 holes. “I didn’t hit the ball well starting off, and I fixed it,” Woods said. “I really hit it good coming home, started hitting the ball the right flight, the right trajectory, every tee shot was flush, everything was back to where it was at the beginning of the week. “I’m still struggling a little bit with my setup and alignments off of tee shots because I don’t curve the ball as much anymore. It’s a nice change, but it’s still a change.” Woods also proclaimed his iron game back, saying “just about every iron shot was on my number, which was great.” Watson didn’t sound like he was making excuses for his friend, who hadn’t played a full 18 holes when he arrived at Firestone since April 10 at the Masters Tournament. This is just Woods’ seventh tournament of the year. “You’ve got to remember he’s a little rusty and he hasn’t played,” Watson said. “He has a new swing. Everything is coming together and he’s learning. He’s getting to see it under pressure. He’ll tweak it a little bit and probably be really ready next week.”

and of how he created the Prime Time image at Florida State — then turned it into a persona. A Hall of Fame persona. “What separates us is that we expect to be great,” he said. “I expect to be great, I expect to do what had to be done. I expect to make change.” Just as Sharpe expected to change his life as a kid who went to college with two brown grocery bags filled with his belongings. In a captivating acceptance speech, Sharpe passionately made a pitch to get his brother, Sterling, who played seven years with the Packers, considered for election to the shrine. Sterling, who introduced his younger brother for induction, wept as Shannon praised him. “I am the only player who has been inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame and am the second-best player in my family,” Sharpe said.

Sounders score 2 late goals, beat Sporting K.C. KANSAS CITY, KAN. — Mauro Rosales and Lamar Neagle scored less than two minutes apart at the close of the second half, giving Seattle Sounders a 2-1 win Saturday night and snapping Sporting Kansas City’s 14-match unbeaten streak. Kansas City (7-7-9) lost its first game since May 21 — ending a 6-0-8 stretch. Rosales tied the game at 1 in the 90th minute for Seattle (11-5-8), and Neagle’s game-winner in the second minute of stoppage time came on a loose-ball scramble in the area. Sporting forward Omar Bravo was issued a straight red card — his second of the year and Kansas City’s club-record seventh of the year — for a hard challenge on Pat Noonan in the 58th minute. Kei Kamara’s leaping header put Kansas City up, 1-0, in the 20th minute.

GOLF Scott leads at Firestone

He was reported in serious but stable condition and is expected to remain hospitalized into next week. Dugger did not give a definitive prognosis for the 24year-old Nicasio, saying there were still many unknowns. However, he said there are also encouraging signs. “He can move his arms. He can talk. He can sit up with help. He remembers every detail of that game, Nicasio including that pitch,” Dugger said. “He was squeezing my hand so tight in the room today. It’s a good sign. I’m optimistic, but we just don’t know. We’ll know more once we start getting into the therapy, at about the six-week mark.”

Red Sox 10, Yankees 4 BOSTON — Jacoby Ellsbury had a three-run homer with a career-high six RBIs as Boston continued its mastery of CC Sabathia and beat New York on Saturday, ending the Yankees’ eight-game winning streak and moving back into a tie atop the AL East. Carl Crawford had four hits — giving him hits in six straight plate appearances — and scored three runs. John Lackey (10-8) scattered six hits over six innings for the Red Sox, who are 9-2 against New York this season and have clinched at least a tie in the season series. New York

the kid. Tanner had developed some really bad habits over there on that left side. The problem was there was so much bad muscle memory there so we basically just said, ‘Let’s reboot the computer, get the viruses out and let’s go to work.’” Sliding into Hawkinson’s old spot will be Spikes, a 6-6, 325-pound junior who missed all of 2010 but has 23 career starts on his resume. Grimes said Spikes still had some work to do to get back to 100 percent. “The guy that’s probably the rustiest of everyone is probably Jeff Spikes,” Grimes said. “Last year, I demanded that he was at every meeting and that he was there on time. Everything that I would demand out of the other guys I demanded out of him except what we did out on the football field. But he’s still rusty.” One reason Grimes isn’t overly concerned about Spikes’ progress is because of the player the Jayhawks have slotted behind him. Although he played just 96 snaps a season ago, Grimes said he believed sophomore Riley Spencer, 6-7, 300, had the potential to become a stud. “There is no question he’s a

some guts. We found out later during our two weeks of Boot Camp what we were really working toward. “In our last day of Boot Camp, coach Self strutted into the gym with a camouflage shirt on with the word ‘WAR’ on the front in big, black letters, and he’d smeared black army paint under his eyes. There wasn’t one guy in that gym who wasn’t ready to go to battle after that day and it would pay off down the road.” Self didn’t stick around for Saturday’s alumni game, preferring to let the ex-players have the spotlight. “For me, I think the rally at Minnesota (67-66) in my second year was No. 1 (memory),” Self said of top moment in his three years at U of I. “I still have a picture in my office of Frank Williams making that winning basket and all those fans in shock. That was awesome.

That’s not acceptable. We didn’t win the game. I’m upset. I’m kicking myself over the whole start.” Joaquin Benoit pitched out of a jam in the eighth for Detroit, and Jose Valverde converted his 32nd straight save to start the season, matching the club record set by AL MVP Willie Hernandez in 1984. Victor Martinez drove in a pair of runs before getting hurt, and Miguel Cabrera and Magglio Ordonez had the

tough guy because he was battling that shoulder injury all of last season,” Grimes said. “You don’t go through the pain he went through just to stay on the field if you’re not tough. He was one-armed. I’ve got a great amount of respect for that kid because he is a tough, tough guy. That’s not an injury that doesn’t hurt.” Rounding out KU’s top five are guards Trevor Marrongelli (6-2, 293) and Duane Zlatnik (6-4, 305). Marrongelli, a junior from Austin, Texas, missed the second half of last season because of injury. “Marrongelli has really come back f ine from his injury,” he said. “We just want him to keep getting bigger and stronger. He’s a guy who’s played some snaps here and really had an outstanding spring.” As for Zlatnik, just talking about him brought a sparkle to Grimes’ eye and extra energy to his voice. “Coming out of spring practice a year ago, I did not want to put him in a game,” Grimes said of Zlatnik. “He wasn’t ready. Then, all of a sudden, he had to play 738 snaps last year. Duane has got a chance to be a really, really good player. He’s really strong, really athletic. I like him a lot.” Throughout 2010, Gill talked about finding seven or eight linemen he could count on. Three practices into 2011, it appears he has that many.

“Another guy who had an outstanding spring is Gavin Howard,” Grimes said of the 6-5, 292-pound sophomore. “He’s come a long way from a maturity standpoint and he’s got a chance to be a good player.” Beyond the obvious experience and talent of KU’s front line, the thing that seems to excite Grimes most is the unit’s depth. “We’ve got guys with size now,” Grimes said. “That’s really the big difference. We’ve got guys with Big 12 size. (Freshmen) Travis Bodenstein (6-5, 295), Bryan Peters (6-5, 305), these guys are at the size they need to be right now.” Of freshman center Dylan Admire (6-3, 283), who arrived on campus in January, Grimes was equally complimentary. Add to that trio of freshmen Damon Martin (6-5, 265) and Luke Luhrsen, a 6-5, 290-pound former hockey player, and it’s easy to see why Grimes is so pumped up about his new hogs. That said, he’s not going to call them gameready just yet. “Honestly, you don’t want to play any of them,” he said. “You really don’t. They’re not ready. With an offensive lineman, you don’t just throw him in the grease and pull him out like you do a catfish. You gotta put him in the oven and bake him a while. That’s just a fact.”

“Then there were the three wins over Missouri in St. Louis, the ‘Paint the Hall Orange’ game (against Michigan State), and our comeback from 12 down against Wisconsin (68-67) at home that first year.” In all, Self went 78-24 at Illinois. His 2000-01 team reached the NCAA Tournament Elite Eight. Self has coached just one game against his former school while at KU. The Jayhawks rolled, 73-59, in a second-round 2011 NCAA Tournament game in Tulsa.

starting this week in advance of what many expect will be a season-long shutdown of the NBA. The players would need ‘outs’ in their contracts, however, in the event the lockout ended in time for an abbreviated season.

Robinson looking good: KU junior Thomas Robinson has been playing well in camp counselor scrimmages at the Adidas Nations Global Experience in Los Angeles. “Robinson continues to show new wrinkles to his game, along w/same phenomenal athleticism. Poised to have a huge season,” Jonathan Givony of draftexpress.com wrote on Twitter Saturday. Draftexpress.com believes many NBA players will be signing with European teams

other RBIs for the American League Central-leading Tigers. They’ll go for the series sweep today. The Royals were trailing, 41, in the seventh when an error by Ryan Raburn gave them hope. Raburn had just moved from third base to right field to start the inning. Eric Hosmer singled with one out and Jeff Francoeur doubled down the right-field line. Raburn’s throw overshot second base by a wide margin, allowing Hosmer to score. Weak-hitting Brayan Pena’s two-out double moments later drew Kansas City within 4-3.

Recruiting: L.J. Rose, a 6-3 senior point guard from Westbury Christian High in Houston, tells Zagsblog.com that Texas is his current leader in recruiting.

Warren, who is rated No. 36, also is considering KU, Florida, Georgetown, Kentucky and North Carolina State. ...

Whimsical, like an adult child. What are your current favorite fashion trends? I like it when people feel free to be who they are and don’t try so hard to fit in. What are your least favorite fashion trends? The really hot trends. I don’t really follow trends. What would you like to see more of in Lawrence? More unscripted musical numbers and more random high fives.

I’ve coached soccer for several years, and I’d like to see more parents take a hands-on approach when encouraging their kids to stay active throughout the year.

Hand them a ball and bottle of water and kick them out of the house for the afternoon. What would you like to see less of in Lawrence? City Hall doling out TIFs to the most conspicuous of contractors and business groups without feeling the need to seriously re-evaluate the policy.

LOCKETS such as this one are among the many pieces of jewelry for sale at Made in downtown Lawrence. The concept grew out of co-owner Jennifer Richards’ passion for Etsy.com, a crafting site that allows artists to host websites and sell handmade goods.

If handmade seems like a quaint idea bordering on kitschy in this day and age of Amazon.com and the online outlet store, you clearly haven’t been to Made, 737 Mass., the newest gift shop in downtown Lawrence and the purveyor of everything and anything handmade. Jewelry mingles with iPad cases. Sunny clocks and signs proclaiming “Geek” and “Eat” nestle near homemade soaps and lip balm. Cheery aprons stare down pillows. Wooden chandeliers hang over Absolut Vodka bottles that have been converted into vases. The total effect is one of both being in someone’s home and browsing at a local craft fair. Nothing seems manufactured, per se, but rather — wait for it — made. Like the works of art stocking the store, Made is the product of a long bit of plan-

The concept grew out of Jennifer’s passion for Etsy.com, a crafting site that allows artists to host websites and sell handmade goods in their own personal “stores.” Jennifer joined a few years ago, setting up shop as Little Rory after finding success making handmade Tshirts for her son. Selling was fine and good, but what she really loved was seeing the artistry in what everyone else on the site made. Same goes for the local producers next to whom Jennifer would set up shop dur-

ing local craft fairs. “When I would do the craft shows and people would stop at my booth, I’d mention Etsy and it seemed like everybody knew it and people love it. But people would say to me, ‘I never think about it early enough to order,’ or ‘I’d love to order from them, but I want to smell it,’ or ‘I want to hold it and look at it and see the quality of it,’” she says. “Hearing those things from people, I just thought, ‘Wouldn’t it be great if we had a place we could go and you could see these things, grab it, Please see MADE, page 6B

Quite a few really nice submissions for the Dear Lawrence Project have come in thus far, and it’s easy to tell that people are having fun with it. After the last several weeks of shooting I’ve come across a few helpful tips and suggestions after my own bouts of frustration and error. 1. I’m sure simple geometry can explain it, but wide-angle lenses work best for the rephotographing. I’ve tried it with mid-range and long lenses and have yet to succeed. The wides just allow for more of the current landscape to be seen around the original photograph and really help with making the connection between the past and present. 2. Focus on a couple of elements within the photo to help measure the scale. In the accompanying photo, which was shot from my front porch and features my brother, Caleb Krug, I could tell by Please see BEHIND, page 6B

the angle that my mom or dad first shot the original while sitting down, so I did so as well. As I started to align the old image, I paid particular attention to the scale of the fence in the old photo I was holding relative to how it matched the fence across the street before re-photographing. To adjust and align, I simply pulled the old photo closer or farther away from my camera until the two appeared to be about the same size. 3. Also, with some photos, you may need to physically walk closer or farther away with the image outstretched in hand in order for the image and the background to begin aligning correctly. 4. It really helps to close one eye when you are aligning the photos. Binocular vision is great for about everything else except this project. 5. Now that we’ve been talking about geometry, pay attention to the lines and the angles of streets, sidewalks, windows. If you can hold out your old photo flat and upright in front of you without skewing it and the lines of elements in the background and old photo appear parallel, then you’re probably aiming it in the right direction. Even with all these tips, which may or may not be helpful to you, the process can be challenging. However, that’s part of the fun. Not everybody has an archive that extends back to the turn of the 20th century, and that is more than cool because almost everybody has family photos. With this in mind, we want to encour-

Making ‘Made’ Running with that idea, the Lawrence-based couple tossed around the idea of a handmade shop with the truth that, after 12 years as a lawyer, Matt was looking for a career change. In the spring, the couple found the perfect place for their fledgling business in a downtown space that had previously been home to an eye doctor. The broad windows provided a great avenue to attracting window shoppers and the shelving — meant for glasses — turned out to be perfect for displaying items of all shapes and sizes — and an ever-changing inventory. “I try to order in small quantities because we don’t have a warehouse to store it and a lot of times, the people I’m ordering from, the vendors, have another job, so I don’t like to hit them with an enormous order,” Jennifer says. “But if something sells really well, we might get them again. Some things are one-of-a-kind and we can’t get them again. But if we are going to get it again, usually, because it is handmade, it takes weeks.” Also adding to the changing inventory are products from local vendors. Every day, Matt, who runs the counter full-time (Jennifer still works part-time as an accountant), meets and greets a handful of artists who stroll in to inquire about selling their wares. “In one month, we’ve probably doubled the amount of local people. ... We get four or five people a day that come in,” he says, just after taking a photograph of the work of a walkin artist from Rossville. “We’ve had jewelry, photographs, pillows, T-shirts, purses — probably 10 percent (on the floor). But it’s going to go up a great deal.” Making a connection Store fan Taylor Hrabe says she’s asking for Made gift certificates for her upcoming birthday. “I work downtown, just a few stores away from Made.

I love it,” she says. “The first time I went in, I was talking to the two that own the shop and mentioned something about steampunk items. The woman not only knew what I was talking about, but immediately began showing me around the store and pointing out various items of a steampunk nature that I might be interested in.”

The couple says that introducing customers like Hrabe to new things they love is on the same plane as ordering from a part-time artist hoping to make it fulltime in the future. “I’m happy to buy things from other people. We really like to support people doing what they want to do. Some of them, making the products they make that we have here, that’s their full-time job. A lot of husbands and wives, that is what they do. That’s their day job. But then there’s other people who work a day job but make dog collars at night or they sew in the evening. So, it’s nice to work with them,” she says “It’s nice to give them some income from something they enjoy doing.” — Staff writer Sarah Henning can be reached at 832-7187.

Admittedly, this is fairly innocuous stuff. Still, it begs the question: Are we spending too much time documenting our lives instead of living them?”

don’t need to come home to see 24 different depictions of mercury rising on my Facebook feed. I have a 24/7 Weather Channel habit to remind me how miserable I am, thank you very much. And, listen up, TV reporters: If I’ve seen one live shot of eggs frying sunnyside-up on a sidewalk, I’ve seen them all. One videographer tried to bake Tollhouse cookies on a sheet pan balanced precariously on his dashboard. Equally obnoxious but, at least, he was original. If you insist on doing the egg thing, throw some sausage and hash browns on the skillet. Whip up a frittata. Make it interesting! That said, I completely understand there’s a little journalist in all of us, eager to record the milestones, markers and miscellaneous moments of our lives. Some photos — the ones with people, not numerals, as subjects — are priceless pieces of personal history. In high school, I had a girlfriend who was constantly pointing and shooting her Instamatic. Slumber parties, proms, school plays, awards assemblies, trips to the lake — there wasn’t a special event, double date or road trip she failed to capture on Kodachrome. “Stop! Enough already!!” we’d scream while shielding our faces from our shutterbuggy sister. She schlepped her film (yes, film!) to the local drugstore where it was processed into prints. (This took several days in the dark ages.) Thoughtfully, she displayed them into albums to share with pals at the next sleepover. The images were, by today’s standards, laughably

“low res,” but those faded snapshots are pure gold to us now — evoking wild laughter, bittersweet nostalgia and complete amazement that we were ever that young and skinny. These days, pictures are a dime a digital dozen — ubiquitous and random, taken not for posterity’s sake but because our cameras seem to always be in our hands. I know, because I am one of the worst offenders. A quick scan of my Blackberry shows 193 images, breaking down in the following categories: Work-related: 32 Special events or occasions: 39 Nature: 19 Misfires (shots of the floor, darkness, inside of my purse): 14 Lucy, the cocker spaniel: 26 (because she’s just so doggone cute) Self-portraits (face or feet — don’t ask): 10 Bank thermometers: 5 (Hey, I never said I haven’t succumbed to temptation!) Food: 48 Yes, I take an extraordinary amount of food photos. Some might say, a crazy amount. On the Blackberry, I found — to my dismay — six (count ’em) SIX shots of the same plate of deviled eggs. Were the deviled eggs especially beautiful? Were they unusual in the way they were filled or arranged on the plate? Was the plate itself an antique or a unique work of art? No, no and no. My motivation is a mystery. I must have thought, on some subconscious level, that if I was going to go to the trouble of devilling eggs on a hot summer day, I wanted visual evidence of my efforts.

On our trip to Italy this spring, I documented every course of every meal with, at least, one photo. Not only mine, but my spouse’s, too! “Wait!” I’d say, as he prepared to dive headfirst into a plate of fresh pesto lasagna. “Spin it around, let me get a picture!” “We’ve been hiking for hours,” he’d protest too much. “I’m starving!” Five minutes later, after I’d shot the pasta from every conceivable angle, garnering odd stares from Italians at neighboring tables, he took his first bite. Admittedly, this is fairly innocuous stuff. Still, it begs the question: Are we spending too much time documenting our lives instead of living them? It’s worth a ponder, I think. But first, the most amazing storm clouds have gathered overhead. Wait! Where’s my camera…? I whip out the camera phone at the drop of the hat. And food! I LOVE taking pictures of food, especially when traveling but, sometimes, in a favorite neighborhood bistro. I’ve also discovered that the camera phone self-portrait can be surprisingly flattering. As the subject and the photographer, one can control the angle. The higher you raise your arm, the more you hide that double chin and turkey gullet. Very important for the aging woman. Unfortunately, my camera phone does not yet have an airbrushing app. — Cathy Hamilton is a public relations and marketing consultant, author of 16 books and blogger at boomergirl.com.

CRUNCHING THE NUMBERS You recently read here about formulating your offer based on the information included in a CMA (Comparative Market Analysis). You can fine-tune that offer by applying current market trends. Trends may vary by region, state, city, and even the neighborhood, so do your homework. You and your agent can study a lot of available statistics - the CMA, local listings’ DOM (Days on Market), and list to sale price ratios. The CMA compares similar properties, while the DOM figure gives you an idea of whether you’re looking at a buyer’s market or a seller’s market (in which you’ll have more competition and less negotiating power). If possible, look at DOM for listings

within a mile of the home you want to purchase - it’s that area-specific. Let’s move on to the average “List Price to Sales Price Ratio” (LP:SP). Like it sounds, it’s simply a percentage based on how closely the final sales price corresponds to the price at which the home was listed. A house that sells for the asking price has an LP:SP ratio of 100%. So a house that lists for $175,000 but sells for $160,000 has an LP:SP of 91%. Look at the these ratios for the homes on the CMA that most closely match yours, and you’ll have a sound basis for what percentage of the list price to offer.

Science has only begun to navigate the complexities of the human brain, less still the human mind. But author Stefan Merrill Block has managed to create two novels exploring what happens when things go wrong in the mind, focusing not on the science but on the humanity. Block’s debut novel, 2008’s beautifully wrought “The Story of Forgetting,” wove several stories around the theme of early-onset Alzheimer’s: not the medical aspects as much as what it means to forget, and to remember, and what such a disease does to the people close to the afflicted. His second novel, “The Storm at the Door,” unspools a compelling story around mental illness, specifically, bipolar disorder when it was still called “manic depression.” Set in the 1960s, the story is loosely inspired by the lives of Block’s grandparents,

MALCOLM X, PHOTOGRAPHED March 12, 1964, is the subject of a new book by Columbia University professor Manning Marable: “Malcolm X: A Life of Reinvention.” ning Marable notes in “Malcolm X: A Life of Reinvention.” His detractors accused him of being violent, racist, fascist and anti-Semitic. Others hailed him as one of the most influential African Americans in history. His legend was reborn decades later through the hip-hop lyrics of a new blackpower generation, in the confines of America’s ghettos, in post-apartheid Africa, in posters and memorabilia emblazoned with his stern likeness and caustic words, and in director Spike Lee’s epic 1992 movie titled “Malcolm X,” much of which mirrored “The Autobiography of Malcolm X,” coauthored by Alex Haley. Yet for Marable, a leading scholar on black history, many questions about Malcolm had been left unanswered and parts of his life and legacy unexplored. Unlike Haley, whose primary source was his subject, and much of whose book was edited after Malcolm’s death, Marable, who died of complications from pneumonia just days before his book’s publication, used exhaustive research, including Malcolm’s early speeches and letters, once-closed FBI surveillance files, and interviews with veteran Nation of Islam members, including Louis Farrakhan. The result decon-

structs much of what has been popularized about Malcolm X, and offers a rich, revisionist portrait.

Surprising revelations In nearly 600 pages, Marable lays out the life of a man in a continual process of becoming: from troubled youth to street hustler to black separatist leader to pan-Africanist with a global, multicultural vision. Along the journey, Marable uncovers some surprising, yet refreshingly human revelations: an exaggerated criminal past, a homosexual relationship with a white businessman as a youth, negotiation meetings with the Ku Klux Klan, marital infidelities, and Malcolm’s plan toward the end of his life to take the crime of American racism to the United Nations. At the time of Malcolm’s death, Marable shows that the fallen man was still struggling to become. Marable begins the book with Malcolm Little, who grew up in Lansing, Mich., one of seven children of parents drunk on the selfempowerment philosophy of Marcus Garvey. Malcolm’s father, Earl, a carpenter by trade, often took a young Malcolm to meetings of Garvey adherents, where Earl would lead chants of “Up, you mighty race, you can

accomplish what you will.” When Malcolm was 6, his father was killed by a streetcar. The family sank into poverty, often going days without food. When Malcolm was 13, his mother, Louise, was committed to an asylum. Malcolm bounced through a series of foster homes, later becoming Detroit Red, a smart, wanton teenager hustling for survival and identity. In prison for burglary and related crimes, he was often visited by his siblings who had converted to Islam under the Nation. He followed suit, becoming Malcolm X. Against the backdrop of the civil rights movement, he dedicated his life to growing the Nation, which ironically would later mark him for death.

In his eulogy for Malcolm X, noted actor and activist Ossie Davis offered something to consider for those who would reduce his legacy to nothing more than fiery demagoguery, asking rhetorically: Did you ever talk to Brother Malcolm? Did you ever touch him or have him smile at you? Did you ever really listen to him? In the brutal and bloody racial tumult of Jim Crow, when blacks, especially black men, were denied every human dignity, Malcolm X stood for them, as Davis Albi Stevens, declared that day in 1965, as a customer service symbol for “our manhood, representative, our living, black manhood.” Lawrence Malcolm was a towering “’Atlas Shrugged’ by Ayn figure, handsome, sandyRand.

As a member of the Nation of Islam, and its most public spokesman, he preached to blacks a message of reinvention through the strictures of the Nation. He lectured on the teachings of Elijah Muhammad that black Americans were the original people of the world, the lost Asiatic tribe of Shabazz, forced into slavery, and to wander in America’s racial wilderness.

He branded all whites as devils, a scathing indictment of an entire race for racial discrimination. He also blasted the black middle class as nothing more than “Negro Uncle Toms,” who turned away from the plight of poor and working-class blacks trapped inside America’s ghettos, sinking in a swamp of job discrimination, substandard housing and violent racism.

Katharine and Frederick, who live a comfortable suburban family life. But the darkness that Frederick tries desperately to hide, and control, increasingly finds its way to the surface. Then one night, faced with jail after a drunken spree, Frederick is taken by his wife and friends to a mental hospital. At first he — and Katharine — think it will be a short stay, a time for him to “get some rest.” But as his treatment begins, both Frederick and his psychiatrist realize that there is more to his condition than exhaustion: “The vast unknowable something: it is a consumptive, obliterating fathomlessness, but also a place of radiance, of astonishment, and of eternal complexity. And it is what Frederick senses is to blame for all his failures. Into the vacuum of itself, it has drawn everything that once

seemed so simple and complicated. ... All he has accomplished in his career, the birth of his daughters, the people he has tried to love: all have seemed to promise respite, something good and knowable to obstruct this vast dark thing.” Frederick settles in at the Mayflower Home for the Mentally Ill (based on the McLean Hospital in Boston), and gets to know some of the other patients, including poet Robert Lowell (who is fictionalized in this book but did spend time in the McLean Hospital). As readers, we also get a window into the lives of the psychiatrist and his main assistant, and the politics and practices of running a mental hospital. Block’s descriptions of the hospital, its staff, its residents and its workings are harrowing, poignant and at times quite funny. He refrains from condescending to or romanticizing the patients, instead

telling their stories in a straightforward, humane way, yet with a poetry in his language that illuminates what little beauty there is in their situations. The book alternates between Frederick and Katharine, peering into each of their now-separate lives. Katharine, the “ethereal and tranquil mother, who has always been able to absorb others’ abuse with bullet-trap imperviousness,” has been left to fend for herself and her four daughters, increasingly worrying as savings run out and bills pile up. She puts on a brave face, of course — how can she not? — but the girls realize as the weeks go by that their father is not just gone for “a rest.” Her mundane worries are not as interesting as Frederick’s travails in the hospital, but her emotions are no less deeply conveyed. The chapters set later in her life, when she wrestles with how much of the past to hold on to, strike the perfect balance of sadness and defiance.

Born to busk: Performer, director bring performance documentary to Lawrence By Eric Melin Special to the Journal-World

When Kansas City singer/songwriter Phillip Bradley was chosen to appear in a documentary about buskers who perform on the streets and subway platforms of New York City, he didn’t know what to expect. He headed to Manhattan, slept on a friend’s couch and took his music to the people of New York while a film crew shot it all. That movie, “Busking the System,” is making its way across the country now on the film festival circuit, with a three-day stop in downtown Lawrence, not coincidentally during the Lawrence Busker Festival. The Lawrence Arts Center is showing the movie Aug. 19, while the Granada Theater hosts screenings Aug. 20-21. Sunday’s screening is followed by a concert from the Kansas City band Not a Planet, fronted by Nate Corsi, who also appears in the film. All three screenings will feature an after-movie Q&A with director Justin Michael Morales and another star of the movie, singer/songwriter Heidi Kole. While Bradley found the transition from playing shows in the Midwest to busking in the subways of New York to be quite difficult, Kole seems to have been born to busk. “If I have days when I make a handful or a ton of people happy, and someone comes up to me and says, ‘You just changed my day completely,’ I walk away probably more content than if someone drops a hundred dollar bill in my case,” Kole says. “Although the hundred dollar bill never hurts.” Then again, Kole is not your average musician. To start with, Morales and the “Busking the System” crew found her on Facebook — not the first place you would think of to find a street musician. Kole also has a YouTube page, a Twitter account and even a QR code that is attached to her amplifier so that people who have smart phones can scan it as they walk by and be taken straight to her website. There they can buy a T-shirt or her newly published book, “The Subway Diaries.” A classically trained musician and stage performer since 12, Kole’s love affair with busking “underground” came one day when she took her guitar on the subway on her way to a trainer. Having injured herself on a set doing some TV stunt work, Kole was out of commission and her regular physical therapy sessions meant she couldn’t commit to a normal job with 9-to-5 hours. “It was the scariest thing I’d ever done,” she says of her first train-platform performance. “Scarier than stunts, scarier than auditions.” Feeding off the energy of the people in the subway that day, however, she experienced “bliss.” Kole came away from her trial by fire with a feeling of insanity and — perhaps more importantly — community. While singing against the roar of the trains, something left her that day. Later, she figured out what it was — her ego. “When your ego leaves, it’s a pretty great place. You are left with complete contentment.” Living in the Bronx and taking the subway every day, “Busking the System” director Morales had a similar experience, and it inspired him to make the documentary. “One particular day I saw a blind violinist make his way onto the subway. He found his way to a pole to lean against, then began to play intensely. It was an amazing display of talent, and when the train stopped at the next station he made his way off the train asking for no change,” Morales says. “I then thought to myself, ‘There must be more

A special Exceptional Artistic Achievement award may also be awarded. The 16th annual Phoenix Awards will be formally presented, along with a reception to honor recipients, at 2 p.m. Nov. 6 at the Lawrence Arts Center, 940 N.H. Award recipients will receive an award created by local artist David Van Hee. The deadline to make a nomination is Aug. 26. Nomination instructions are at www.lawrenceks.org/ advisory_boards/lac/phoenix and at the arts center; City Hall, 6 E. Sixth St.; and the Lawrence Public Library, 707 Vt.

Local playwright Betty Laird bases the story of “To Catch a Butterfly” on real people and events. In the aftermath of Quantrill's Raid, two young teachers and their bumbling pastor father arrive in Lawrence to open a school for girls. The serious threat of invasion by rebel troops during the latter days of the Civil War hangs over the city, and the women are confronted with a variety of obstacles. Performances are 8 p.m. Friday, with an optional opening night dinner at the Eldridge Hotel; 7:30 p.m. Saturday and 2:30 p.m. Aug. 14. The show will feature Lisa Greenwood and Sonja Holmgren as the new teachers, and John Mosher as their father. Other cast members will include Eileen Hart, Randy Parker, Mary Sean Ratzloff, Don McIntyre and Peggy Sampson. The show is under the direction of Mary Ann Saunders. For tickets, call 843-7469.

Buskers have more freedom in one sense because they play where they want to play 24 hours a day, on their terms, but they are also fighting the elements, the local crazies and the New York Police Department. For Kole, that’s all part of the process. Busking has become a calling. “When I get sent to court, or when I get ticketed, or when I get hauled in,” Kole says, “it’s important for people to know the joys underground — when children dance to us or when old ladies start throwing away their canes and start moving around on the platform.” Bradley had a less romantic experience among New York buskers, especially performing near ones with a serious “wow” factor that could impress the tourists — like breakdancers or the guy who plays drums with his hands. For someone like Bradley who is performing his own original music, it is a lot harder to get people to stop and throw some money your way. “In general, I don't really agree with the whole busk-

After being in NYC for a bit I started to realize how strange it was that people would even expect to get paid for playing music on the streets and subways,” Bradley says. “There are a lot of supertalented musicians and other performers out there, but the people passing by on the street aren't going to pay attention unless they really love music or feel bad for you — and at that point it's almost like begging.” As a cultural trend, however, busking is on the rise.

Morales says there are more and more busking festivals cropping up these days than ever. The Lawrence Busker Festival is happening the same weekend the film is here, and Kole is traveling to busker festivals as far away as the United Kingdom and Italy, at least partially funded by a web-based IndieGoGo.com fundraising campaign. “It’s like artist boot camp,” Kole says about busking. “If it is your true calling, it doesn’t matter if the A Train’s going by at breakneck speed. You’ll stay there ’cause it’s what you do.”

KOVEL’S ANTIQUES

Functional pieces gain cachet as collectibles By Terry Kovel

Kevin Anderson/Journal-World Photos

FLOWERS AND SHRUBS around the home of Daniela and Valentin Vidrascu give their east Lawrence residence a burst of color. The couple moved to Lawrence from Cologne, Germany, six years ago.

Colorful garden brightens east Lawrence neighborhood S

ometimes gardeners garden without realizing the benefit they provide to others. Valentin and Daniela Vidrascu’s garden, on a quiet street in east Lawrence, is a perfect example. The flowers and shrubs Daniela has planted in front of their home offer a bright spot to passers-by. When the couple bought their home six years ago, the front yard was bare. The backyard was the opposite — almost a jungle of overgrown shrubs and trees. Moving here from Cologne, Germany, it was the first time the Vidrascus had a yard of their own. “When we lived in Germany, I dreamed for a house,” Daniela tells me. “There was not a place to put a flower, just a few pots.” Daniela started planting shrubs and flowers in front, and clearing out what she could in the backyard. She was learning as she went. Now, clematis, butterfly bush, lavender and coreopsis bloom happily and provide that aforementioned brightness. “This is my favorite,” Daniela says of the clematis. “It was so small when I planted it, and now

you can see how big it is and how much it blooms. I have purple, white and pink.” Nearby, chartreuse barberries add color amongst azaleas and dianthus, which bloomed earlier this year. Chrysanthemums will open their buds soon and hold until frost. There has been some trial and error, Daniela says. “What’s not growing well here, I move to my corner,” she says as she motions toward the side of the house. The plants I see, mostly hydrangeas, appear to be thriving in their “new” location. As a backdrop to the front landscape bed, Daniela uses large potted plants, including

sansevieria and dracaena. The tropical plants are overwintered in a sunroom on the back of the house with orchids, African violets and Christmas cactus. Although modest about any benefit to her neighbors, Daniela is open about what the garden does for her. “I’m working every day, and I’m so tired sometimes. But when I see my house and my plants from the corner, I’m not tired anymore.” Daniela also finds joy in the hummingbirds and butterflies that come to visit her plants. In the backyard, where Daniela has removed the overgrown trees and shrubs, is a small vegetable garden and the beginnings of another large flower bed. She hopes to recruit Valentin to help her create an island of perennials and shrubs that is getting started with coneflower and butterfly bush. I suspect Daniela’s gardens will only get more beautiful.

Antiques and collectibles are named for their age. Antiques must be more than 100 years old to be legally called “antiques.” Collectibles can be anything made less than 100 years ago. The quality of the design or the material does not matter. At today’s shows, you can expect to find porcelain, silver, toys, furniture and pictures. But you’ll also see large wooden gear molds, filing cabinets and factory work tables, pallets and lockers. They are all used to decorate homes these days, whether the home is traditional, modern or created from unexpected space in a loft or an old school. At a recent antique show, we saw some old hand-carved wooden screws that were once part of a cider press. The largest, about 7 feet tall, was mounted on a base and being sold as piece of sculpture. The asking price topped $7,000. A wooden filing cabinet with the brass label “Shannon Filing Cabinet, manufactured by Schlicht and Field, Rochest, N.Y., Patented March 30, 86,” sold for $375.

Q:

I have four teapots in light blue, dark green, gold and maroon with the word “Lipton’s” stamped on the bottom of each one. I’m told they’re from the 1930s and were given out as premiums. Are there any other colors? Should I be on the lookout for matching creamers and sugar bowls? What are they worth?

A:

HOT PEPPERS in the garden area thrive at the home of Daniela and Valentin Vidrascu. The small vegetable garden, located on the property’s backyard, joins the beginnings of another large flower bed.

Lipton teapots were made by Hall China Co. of East Liverpool, Ohio, and were given out as premiums beginning in 1935. The teapots were made in light blue, dark green, mustard, maroon, black and light yellow on the company’s “French” shape. Your gold teapot is probably the same as mustard, so you are missing black and light yellow. Matching sugar and creamer bowls were not made. If your teapots have a strainer inside the spout, they are early versions. Later versions didn’t have the strainer. Hall China Co. was founded in 1903. The company made dinnerware, kitchenware, institutional ware and other wares. It merged with Homer Laughlin China Co. in 2010. Value of each of your teapots: about $25.

Husband can’t change until he admits problem Dear Annie: I have been married to “Greg” for 21 years, and we have three wonderful teenagers. When we met, Greg seemed like the perfect guy. However, a few years after we married, he began to drink much more heavily, and now he gets drunk nearly every day. Greg had a rocky childhood and lost both his parents at a young age. The family members who raised him were abusive. That’s the reason I’ve always excused his drinking, but, Annie, I can’t take it anymore. Instead of a husband, I have an alcoholic child on my hands. He does absolutely nothing with the kids or with me. All he wants to do is drink and sleep. I’m 45 years old and do not want to live the rest of my life with this man and his addiction. I’ve begged him to get help, but he blames me for all his problems. I could tolerate being married to an alcoholic if I knew he was trying to get sober, but he has no interest. I’ve sought individual counseling, and we’ve been to marriage counseling together, but nothing has made a difference. The kids are equally frustrated because Greg won’t listen to their pleas, either. I cannot afford a divorce and don’t want to leave my home, which I cannot pay for without Greg’s income. How can I free myself from this miserable life without losing

Fishing show has odd hook Like a wreck on the highway, some things demand attention. I’m referring to “Hillbilly Handfishin”’ (9 p.m., Animal Planet). It invites viewers to spend 12 onehour episodes in muddy creeks, rivers and swimmin’ holes where Oklahoma natives teach city slickers the lost art of “noodling.” Or is that “noodlin”’? What’s noodling? It’s a process of sticking your entire arm or leg in an unseen hole in a river floor or muddy bank to coax giant catfish to bite you so you can catch them by hand. Our hosts attribute this skill to Native American secret lore. But it looks like it dates back to the Stone Age. Every week, Oklahoma hand fishermen and self- proclaimed hillbillies Skipper Bivins and Trent Jackson invite clients from cities and suburbs to try something “different.” In episode one, two Chicago cops, a Boston barmaid and a personal trainer join a brother-sister team from California to try their hand (and feet) at noodlin.’ They can safely say that it’s an entirely new experience. Viewers in search of the least glamorous, most un-Bravo-like vacation setting imaginable should check this out at least once. This dusty corner of Oklahoma makes the environs celebrated on “Truck Stop, Missouri” look like Versailles. Members of the chambers of commerce in unloved and unvisited locations should study “Hillbilly Handfishin.’” If these guys can attract paying tourists to bleak, brown, snake-invested waters, then what’s your excuse? ● The new series “Curiosity” (7 p.m., Discovery) employs celebrity names to host one-hour installments that ponder big questions. Director Eli Roth (“Hostel”) will examine the nature of evil. Actress Maggie Gyllenhaal hosts an hour on the evolution of human sexuality. Morgan Freeman will be your guide to the notion of parallel worlds. Morgan Spurlock takes the “raw” diet craze to its extremes and examines the health impact of living like a caveman. Maybe he should go “Hillbilly Handfishin”’! Things kick off with astrophysicist Stephen Hawking, who asks, “Did God Create the Universe?” The one-hour episode uses computer graphics and scholarly interviews to discuss not only the nature and origins of the Big Bang, but the long and contentious relationship between faith and science.

Tonight’s other highlights ● Scheduled on “60 Minutes” (6 p.m., CBS): more housing woes; Paul Allen, the bitter billionaire; Eminem. ● Tom Brokaw interviews families of returning servicemen on “The Road Back” on “Dateline” (6 p.m., NBC). ● Kaley Cuoco hosts “Teen Choice 2011” (7 p.m., Fox). ● An over-moussed host crosses the pond on “Ty’s Great British Adventure” (7 p.m., ABC). ● Marnie summons dark powers on “True Blood” (8 p.m., HBO). ● The Cartel asserts itself on “Breaking Bad” (9 p.m., AMC). ● The rebels attempt to take the fight to the invaders on “Falling Skies” (9 p.m., TNT). ● A popular teacher doesn’t live to make tenure on “The Glades” (9 p.m., A&E). ● Larry draws a line in the sand at a buffet table on “Curb Your Enthusiasm” (9 p.m., HBO).

care if she’s hurting you. Molly doesn’t step up because doing so would create a rift with “sensitive” Lillian. And the friendship may not be worth saving, because Lillian doesn’t value you as much as she should. The two of you are competing for Molly’s affections, and someone will be hurt.

AFGHANISTAN

U.S. helicopter shot down, killing 30 troops “Their deaths are a reminder of the extraordinary sacrifices made by the men and women of our military and their families, including all who have served in Afghanistan,” President Barack Obama said in a statement, adding that his thoughts and prayers go out to the families of those who perished. The U.S.-led coalition said in a statement that 30 American service members, a civilian interpreter and seven Afghan commandos were killed when their CH-47 Chinook crashed in the early hours Saturday. A current U.S. official and a former U.S. official said the Americans included 22 SEALs, three Air Force air controllers and a dog handler and his dog. The two spoke on condition of anonymity because military officials were still notifying the families of the dead. Afghan President Hamid Karzai announced the number of people killed in the crash and the presence of special operations troops before any other public figure. He also offered his condolences to the American and Afghan troops killed in the crash. The deaths bring to 365 the number of coalition troops killed this year in Afghanistan and 42 this month.

By Solomon Moore and Kimberly Dozier Associated Press Writers

KABUL , A FGHANISTAN — Insurgents shot down a U.S. military helicopter during f ighting in eastern Afghanistan, killing 30 Americans, most of them belonging to the same elite Navy SEALs unit that killed Osama bin Laden, as well as seven Afghan commandos, U.S. officials said Saturday. It was the deadliest single loss for American forces in the decade-old war. The downing was a stinging blow to the lauded, tightknit SEAL Team 6, months after its crowning achievement. It was also a heavy setback for the U.S.-led coalition as it begins to draw down thousands of combat troops fighting what has become an increasingly costly and unpopular war. None of the 22 SEAL personnel killed in the crash were part of the team that killed bin Laden in a May raid in Pakistan, but they belonged to the same unit. Their deployment in the raid in which the helicopter crashed would suggest that the target was a high-ranking insurgent figure. Special operations forces, including the SEALs and oth-

A U.S. MARINE TRIES TO TAKE COVER, perched on a container, as a Chinook helicopter arrives to pick up supplies June 9 at Forward Operating Base Edi in the Helmand Province of southern Afghanistan. Afghan President Hamid Karzai says 31 U.S. special forces and seven Afghan soldiers were killed when a helicopter, similar to the one shown, crashed Saturday in eastern Wardak province. ers, have been at the forefront in the stepped up strategy of taking out key insurgent leaders in targeted raids, and they will be relied on even more as regular troops pull out. The strike is also likely to boost the morale of the Taliban in a key province that controls a strategic approach to the capital Kabul. The Taliban claimed they downed the helicopter with a rocket while it was taking part in a

raid on a house where insurgents were gathered in the province of Wardak overnight. Wreckage of the craft was strewn across the crash site, a Taliban spokesman said. A senior U.S. administration official in Washington said it appeared the craft had been shot down. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the crash is still being investigated.

The overnight raid took place in the Tangi Joy Zarin area of Wardak’s Sayd Abad district, about 60 miles southwest of Kabul. Forested peaks in the region give the insurgency good cover and the Taliban have continued to use it as a base despite repeated NATO assaults. Taliban spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid said in a statement that the helicopter was involved in an assault on a house where insurgent fighters were gathering. During the battle, the fighters shot down the helicopter with a rocket, he said. An American official in Brussels said the helicopter was a twin-rotor Chinook, a large troop and cargo transporter. The casualties are believed to be largest loss of life in the history of SEAL Team Six, officially called the Navy Special Warfare Development Group, or DEVGRU. The team is considered the best of the best among the already elite SEALs, which numbers 3,000 personnel. The death toll surpasses the previous worst single day loss of life for the U.S.-led coalition in Afghanistan since the war began in 2001 — the June 28, 2005 downing of a military helicopter in eastern Kunar province.

U.S. law enforcement websites hacked, data stolen and posted ————

Kansas sheriff’s office among victims LITTLE ROCK, ARK. (AP) — The group known as Anonymous said Saturday it hacked into some 70 mostly rural law enforcement websites in the United States, a data breach that at least one local police chief said leaked sensitive information about an ongoing investigation. The loose-knit international hacking collective posted a cache of data to the Internet early Saturday, including emails stolen from officers, tips which appeared to come from members of the public, credit card numbers and other information. Anonymous said it had stolen 10 gigabytes worth of data in retaliation for arrests of its sympathizers in the U.S. and Britain. Tim Mayf ield, a police chief in Gassville, Ark., told The Associated Press that some of the material posted online — including pictures of teenage girls in their swimsuits — was sent to him as part of an ongoing investigation. He declined to provide more details. Mayfield’s comments were the first indication that the hack might be serious. Since news of some kind of cyberattack first filtered out less than a week ago, various police officials said they were unaware of the hacking or dismissed it as nothing to worry about. Though many of the leaked emails appeared benign, some of the stolen material seen by the AP carried sensitive information, including tips about suspected crimes, profiles of gang members and security training. The emails were mainly from sheriffs’ off ices in Arkansas, Kansas, Louisiana, Missouri and Mississippi. Many of the websites were operated by a Mountain

Home, Ark., media services hosting company, and most, if not all, were either unavailable on Saturday or had been wiped clean of content. The company, Brooks-Jeffrey Marketing, declined to comment. In a statement, Anonymous said had leaked “a massive amount of confidential information that is sure to (embarrass), discredit and incriminate police officers across the US.” The group said it hoped the disclosures would “demonstrate the inherently corrupt nature of law enforcement using their own words” and “disrupt and sabotage their ability to communicate and terrorize communities.” The group did not say specifically why these sheriffs’ departments were targeted, but Anonymous members have increasingly been pursued by law enforcement in the United States and elsewhere following a string of high-profile data thefts and denial of service attacks — operations that block websites by flooding them with traffic. Last month, the FBI and British and Dutch officials made 21 arrests, many of them related to the group’s attacks on Internet payment provider PayPal Inc., which has been targeted over its refusal to process donations to WikiLeaks. The group also claims credit for disrupting the websites of Visa and MasterCard in December when the credit card companies stopped processing donations to WikiLeaks and its founder, Julian Assange. An Internet security expert said Anonymous may have gone after the sheriffs’ offices because the hosting company was an easy target.

SEVEN-MONTH-OLD MINHAJ GEDI FARAH IS TREATED in a field hospital of the International Rescue Committee, IRC, July 26 in Dadaab, Kenya. Only 10 days ago, Minhaj was too weak to cry and his skin crumpled liked thin leather under the pressures of his mother’s hands, but now, on Saturday, doctors say the severely malnourished 7-month-old appears likely to live, and out of danger of joining the more than 29,000 children who have already died in the famine which is sweeping the east African region.

Malnourished Somali baby now thriving as rare success By Malkhadir M. Muhumed Associated Press Writer

DADAAB , K ENYA — Only 10 days ago, Minhaj Gedi Farah was too weak to cry and his skin crumpled liked thin leather under the pressure of his mother’s hands. Now doctors say the severely malnourished 7-month-old appears out of danger of joining the more than 29,000 children who already have died in the famine. It’s a rare success story amid unimaginable misery for parents at the world’s largest refugee camp — a place where a father must bury two of his daughters one day, and their brother the next. Seven-month-old Minhaj though now weighs more than 8 pounds — still well below what he should for his age, but a major improvement from 7 pounds when he first arrived at a field hospital ward here. “He is in stable condition

and he is doing well,” said Dr. John Kiogora of the International Rescue Committee, who has been treating the infant since his arrival in late July. Startling photos of Minhaj’s twig-like arms and hollow cheeks made him the frail face of the worst famine in 60 years. On Saturday, though, the wide-eyed baby looked around the ward inquisitively and became captivated with a journalist who was taking his picture. It’s a miracle for his mother, and a testament to just how hard doctors and other health care workers here are trying to save lives as more and more malnourished children arrive each day. “He has no problem compared to the past days,” said his mother Asiah Dagane, who now smiles broadly and frequently plants kisses on the baby’s cheeks. “Now he sleeps the bulk of the night. When he wakes up, he is hun-

gry and wants milk.” Most parents have been far less fortunate: New arrivals at Dadaab have described losing as many as four children to starvation and disease along the journey by foot from Somalia. Others made unthinkable decisions about which children to take with them, and which to leave for dead under trees so that the entire family did not perish. As Minhaj’s mother celebrated his recovery on Saturday, Muhumed Surow had to bury his 1-year-old daughter Liin, who died from malnourishment overnight after the family reached this refugee camp too late to save her. The 27-year-old father sat about 10 yards away from the thigh-deep grave of his little girl. Dozens of refugees attended the funeral at the edge of Ifo Extension, part of the Dadaab camps. Surow sobbed in a squatting position as fellow mourners tried to console him.

Navy program aims to get jobs for its vets By Melissa Nelson Associated Press Writer

CORRY STATION NAVY BASE, FLA. — The president and some members of Congress want tax breaks, expensive studies and even a “reverse boot camp” to tackle the unemployment rate among veterans, which runs higher than the national average. Another option the Navy would like to see: Expand a program that has helped tens of thousands of soon-to-be-exsailors get certified to use their skills outside the military — medics leave ready for health care jobs, cooks are trained for restaurant work and so on. The Credentialing Opportunities On-Line program aims to ensure that expensive military training isn’t mothballed once a sailor hangs up the uniform. More than 45,000 sailors have obtained certifications or licenses paid for by the Navy to help them qualify for jobs as everything from pharmaceutical technicians to welders, police officers or restaurant chefs. Program leaders say it could be a piece of the solution to curbing alarmingly high unemployment rates, particularly among younger vets. A March report from the Bureau of Labor Statistics showed that more than 20 percent of Iraq and Afghanistan veterans were unemployed last year, while the civilian unemployment rate for the same 18-to-24 age group was 17.3 percent. For Iraq and Afghanistan veterans of all ages, the unemployment rate last year was 11.5 percent compared with a national jobless rate of 9.4 percent. With the military drawdown in Afghanistan and Iraq and the economy still wobbly, the problem is expected to get worse. On Friday, President Barack Obama proposed $120 million worth of tax credits to help companies hire the nation’s 1 million out-of-work veterans. He also called on private employers to hire or train 100,000 veterans by the end of 2013. But often the transition to the civilian workforce gets held up because qualified veterans lack the right paperwork. A Navy corpsman might work in a pharmacy or hospital on a military base or in a war zone, but frequently has to complete extensive outside training courses to do similar civilian jobs. “A machinist mate can run a nuclear power plant on a ship without any certifications or licensing, but as soon as they get off that ship, they cannot go to the TVA (Tennessee Valley Authority) and run a nuclear power plant,” said Keith Boring, who directs the certification program headquartered at Corry Station near Naval Air Station Pensacola, in the Florida Panhandle. A veteran with experience on a nuclear sub would be “at the top of the agency’s hiring list,” TVA spokeswoman Barbara Martocci said. “But that would not streamline any of the training. There may be some things that are redundant but a submarine is a different job than a civilian nuclear plant,” she said. That’s where the Navy’s program comes in. Launched in 2006, it paid for certification tests for 13,818 sailors last fiscal year at a cost of $3.7 million, getting them a step closer to walking directly into another job.

Marine emergency room releases its 10,000th rescued sea lion POINT REYES NATIONAL SEASHORE , C ALIF . (AP) — Two juvenile California sea lions paused for a moment at the edge of the sea, each raising their whiskered faces toward the silvery water before sliding in to freedom. For the Marine Mammal Center crew standing behind the rehabilitated pinnipeds on Thursday, it was a significant day: rescued sea lion No. 10,000, nicknamed Milestone, and 10,001, Zodiac Girl, had

been nursed back to health and sent back to the wild where they belong. “There’s always some attachment. There’s always some animal that captures your heart,” said Shelbi Stoudt, the center staffer who organizes these regular releases. “It’s a bittersweet feeling because you’re sending them back home but you also don’t get to see them anymore.” Since it opened its doors 36 years ago, the nonprof it marine mammal hospital has

become famous for nursing sick marine critters back to health — but its biggest contribution perhaps has been its role in collecting and storing thousands of tissue and other samples from the animals it rescues along 600 miles of California coast. The center’s mix of laboratory science, marine zoo and educational outreach has led to dozens of published scientific papers and helped push understanding of effects of toxic algae, disease and the

effect of climate change on these coastal denizens. While rescues are a chief focus of center, only about half of the animals the center takes in survive to be released. Still, many of the more than 17,000 marine mammals — including entangled whales, otters and elephant seals — the center has aided or taken in have contributed samples that will help further research that can aid threatened and endangered species around the world.
