Kansas, nation can’t always keep up with constantly changing synthetics By Shaun Hittle

SALINA — In decades of long-distance drives through the Midwest, Gary Conti, a retired Oklahoma State University professor, has avoided his share of potential accidents. Like any driver with enough miles under his or her belt, Conti has had to swerve or stop to avoid a collision with a deer or another animal darting across the road. But it never had been a person. Not until about 10:45 p.m. Dec. 21, 2010. Conti and his wife, who were headed back to their Tulsa-area home, stopped for gasoline at a truck stop off Interstate 135 in Salina. He steered their Toyota Sienna back on the highway, heading south. Then a crouching figure flickered in Conti’s peripheral vision at the edge of the dark highway. “Out of nowhere, this young man popped up,” said Conti, who instinctively, and unsuccessfully, swerved away from the man. “It was like a magnet. He just kept running at us,” Conti said. “It was like a horror movie.” The man, 21-year-old Kan-

ratic behavior has been a frequent sight in Salina, particularly in emergency rooms and during encounters with police, as various forms of synthetic, and sometimes legal, drugs have taken hold in the city, Norton said. Salina isn’t alone, and during the past three years an explosion of synthetic drugs has spread across the country, capturing the media spotlight and attention of law enforcement, health officials and lawmakers. As local, state and federal law enforcement ramp up efforts to combat such substances, which they say are increasingly dangerous, they just might be embarking on the newest front in the drug war.

‘K2’ On any given day in fall 2009, lines at the Lawrence herbal shop, Sacred Journey, 1103 Mass., snaked out the store and around the block. Young and old waited to buy the increasingly popular herbal mixtures that went by brand names such as “K2” or “Spice.” While the substances were marketed as herbal incense, few people were fooled; the product was a well-known and thenlegal alternative to marijuana, containing synthetic versions of cannabinoids, or the mind-altering substances found in marijuana. The product, which looks similar to actual marijuana, was cheaper and, for many, offered another key benefit: Use wouldn’t show up on employment or probation drug tests. But little was known about the effects of the substances, or even what the substances contained. That’s what initially concerned Johnson County law enforcement, who saw a dramatic spike in use around the Kansas Citymetro area. And it was all coming from Sacred Journey in Lawrence, said Jeremy Morris, a forensic scientist

City officials confirmed they are looking at a new piece of property to house a northwest Lawrence sports complex, as negotiations drag on with private developers seeking to locate the facility at Sixth Street and the South Lawrence Trafficway. Mayor Bob Schumm said city officials have been studying the feasibility of an 87-acre site that is north and east of the intersection of Sixth Street and the SLT. Specifically, the property, owned by members of the Stultz family, is just north of where George Williams Way currently dead- Schumm ends. So far, city commissioners have been focusing their attention on a 50-acre site at the northwest corner of Sixth Street and the SLT. A group led by Lawrence developer Duane Schwada has proposed to donate the site, but thus far the city and Schwada haven’t been able to come up with an agreeable donation contract. Negotiations with a group led by Thomas Fritzel — which has proposed to finance and own the 181,000-square-foot recreation center and lease it back to the city on a 20-year lease-purchase agreement — also are not complete.

NCAA: Self, KU athletics can’t market new facility By Chad Lawhorn

If the city’s proposed $24 million recreation center in northwest Lawrence becomes a huge draw for regional and national youth sporting tournaments, it won’t be because Bill Self or Kansas University officials put their marketing power behind it. Officials at KU confirmed that NCAA rules will not allow the athletics department to become involved in promoting the proposed center. “We can’t be involved with that at all,” Jim Marchiony, an associate athletic director for KU, said of promoting the city facility. That is different from what city officials once thought. “I know when we were first thinking about this project, I thought Bill Self could make a call and land us ‘X’ number of tournaments,” said City

“We’re not there yet on the Schwada site,” Schumm said. “We have some issues on the donation agreement, and we have some issues on the construction of it. We are not in a position where we can offer the public a good, solid plan right now.” But Schumm said he still believes the city’s top choice for the recreation complex, which would include the city recreation center plus a Kansas University soccer field and track stadium, is the Schwada site. City Commissioner Hugh Carter also said he’s hopeful a deal can be finalized to secure the Schwada site at the Sixth and SLT intersection. But he said the 87-acre site to the north is a viable option. “I’ll be very excited to move forward with the Schwada site, if the details are worked out,” Carter said. “If not, I will be very excited to move forward with the other site. I think we have two good sites.”

Site options Carter said he believes the Schwada site needs to grow from 50 acres to 60 acres. The additional 10 acres are needed to accommodate parking. As currently planned, the site will have 800 paved parking spots plus another 817 temporary spots in grassy fields on the site. That’s more than 1,600 spaces, but plans call for the KU track stadium to have 7,000 to 10,000 seats. If an additional 10 acres are added to the site, it could add another 1,450 temporary parking spaces to handle large crowds. “I just feel like the site has to grow by 10 acres,” Carter said. “I don’t want to feel like we’re shoehorning something in there.” At least one commisARBARA OU ARTLETT sioner also wants to talk about a third site.

A RENDERING of the proposed recreation center in northwest Lawrence is pictured. City officials are looking at a new piece of property to house a northwest Lawrence sports complex, as negotiations drag on with private developers seeking to locate the facility at Sixth Street and the South Lawrence Trafficway. Amyx said he wants to discuss the feasibility of building just a city recreation center on property the city already owns near Wakarusa and Overland drives, near Walmart. “Do we need to be on that large of a site out west? I’m not sure,” Amyx said. “I know I don’t want to have any shortfalls in the future of being able to pay for this.” As proposed, the city would pay Fritzel’s group $24 million over 20 years as part of a lease-purchase agreement. The $24 million would come from an existing sales tax that has been used to pay for previous recreation projects and also the LawrenceDouglas County Community Health Building. Debts on those projects are set to be retired, and commissioners are proposing to use the newly freed-up money on the recreation center. To this point, the city’s cost of $24 million — plus several million dollars to extend infrastructure to the site — has held steady. But Schumm confirmed other details of the proposed agreement with Fritzel’s group have changed. Previously, the city said Fritzel, who is an executive with Gene Fritzel Construction Co., had agreed that no Fritzel entity would bid on building the recreation center. But now, according to Schumm, Fritzel has said he does want Fritzel entities to be able to bid on the project. In addition, Fritzel is proposing a nontra-

“They’ll be mutually exclusive, but I think the fact we will have the notoriety of having our facility adjacent to KU’s facility will help elevate our stature with people who are thinking about bringing tournaments here,” Schumm said. NCAA officials have become extremely interested in how universities interact with youth basketball tournaments. In 2011, the NCAA passed regulations that prohibit AAU and other similar youth basketball tournaments from being hosted at university facilities. NCAA leaders had expressed concern that the on-campus tournaments gave some universities a recruiting advantage. But the new regulations also state youth basketball tournaments can’t be held on off-campus facilities that are regularly used for practice or competition by any of the university’s sports programs.

ditional bid process. The city and Fritzel’s nonprofit entity, The Bliss Foundation, would have to mutually agree on the companies that would be invited to bid. The bids would be publicly released, but because Fritzel’s foundation technically would own the building, the foundation would have the final say in selecting the winning bidder.

New zoning category On their Tuesday evening agenda, commissioners have a request to approve a new zoning category for the 146 acres at the northwest corner of Sixth and the SLT. The new zoning category would allow retail and commercial development on the property surrounding the recreation center. Schumm, however, said he expects the zoning request to be deferred. He said he is not comfortable approving the zoning without first having proposed contracts with Schwada and the Fritzel groups. But Schumm said he does plan on leaving the rezoning request on the city’s agenda so that the public can weigh in on the project. “I think we need to air out where we are at on this project, and I think the public needs to tell us where it’s at on it as well,” Schumm said.

TOPEKA — A leading death penalty opponent says it’s time for Kansas to stop sentencing criminals to be executed after the latest appealed conviction was overturned, the sixth such reversal in six cases before the state’s high court. Donna Schneweis, chairwoman of the Kansas Coalition Against the Death Penalty, says she realizes the odds of repealing the 1994 law are slim, but a growing segment of society is changing its view on capital punishment in the United States. “It was a concept that people wanted to try,” she

said. “We think the death penalty fails as a policy. As legislators learn more about it, they will see that it doesn’t make sense.” Policymakers say the Kansas law works and should remain on the books despite the overturning of convictions by the state Supreme Court. Attorney General Derek Schmidt said “it’s always possible” that the law would get repealed, but he supports keeping it as an option. “I think that with each year that passes and an increasing body of case law that we are inching closer to a law that can be carried out,” said Schmidt, a Republican and former state senator.

Republican Gov. Sam Brownback has spoken out in the past about the death penalty, including his presidential run in 2007 when he said the nation should strive to create a culture of life. He said at the time that it should be held out for special cases, such as Osama Bin Laden or other terrorist figures. Sherriene Jones Sontag, the governor’s spokeswoman, said Friday that Brownback supports the death penalty “when there are no other options to protect society.” House Minority Leader Paul Davis, a Lawrence Democrat and attorney, said ongoing discussions about the death penalty law are healthy, but not

likely to produce changes. Davis supports the limited law but agrees the public views are Davis changing. “I think it’s something we’re going to be talking about for quite a while. Once an execution occurs people may want to bring the discussions more into the light,” Davis said. The last execution in Kansas was in June 1965 by hanging. The latest case to be overturned was announced Aug. 24 when the court struck the conviction of Scott Cheever

Habitat dedicates 80th home ———

House largest in group’s history By Alex Garrison

A brand-new, five-bedroom house on Maple Lane was filled with tears Saturday morning. A mother blinked away emotion as an imam led the group inside in prayer. A son spoke with joy, praising the community around him and earning a playful ribbing by a sister. A father said few words, save what seemed most heart-felt: “Thank you.” On Saturday, Habitat for Humanity of Lawrence dedicated its 80th house, giving it to the Hameed family, who emigrated from Nigeria in 2003. It’s the biggest house Habitat has built in its 23-year-history, but it’s not done yet. Earlier in the week, someone broke into the house. But the morning blessing wasn’t about hardship but a celebration Please see HABITAT, page 4A

There were no incidents to report Saturday.


I live downtown, so I am on Massachusetts Street daily. It seems as if more and more bicycles and skateboards are being ridden on the sidewalks. There are a few signs posted stating their prohibition, but apparently these are overlooked or ignored. I have yet to see any officers enforcing the laws on this. The elderly are especially at risk of losing balance and falling when surprised from the riders. What can be done to rectify this dangerous behavior?

Police efforts to combat synthetic drugs increasing By Shaun Hittle


State and local law enforcement have recently taken on a larger role in seeking out manufacturers and distributors of synthetic drugs. On July 25, acting in accordance with a provision in federal drug laws, the Drug Enforcement Administration, conducted Operation Logjam, a nationwide action aimed at synthetic drug manufacturers. Arrests and drug seizures were made in more than 100 locations in the U.S., including Garden City. Scott Collier, a DEA spokesman, who couldn’t comment specifically about the Garden City raid, said the operation was a reaction to what local law enforcement have been reporting. “The growth of it and some of the outcomes of use,” Collier said. “This flew through the roof.” Under the federal law, unlike in many states, the DEA can act on any substance that has similar substances as a banned substance, such as cocaine or marijuana, if they can prove it’s being marketed for human consumption. Working with local law enforcement, the DEA built cases showing, despite notices and warnings by businesses that the products were not for ingestion, the stores’ intent was selling the products for the mind-altering properties. The Kansas Bureau of Investigation, two weeks following the DEA raids, announced its own operation, which netted arrests and seizures in several Kansas cities, including El Dorado, Emporia and Arkansas City.

A CONVENIENCE STORY THAT HAS SOLD synthetic drugs in Salina is pictured. Collier and local law enforcement say they believe more raids will follow, while lawmakers work to keep up with drug makers. No one mentions any easy answers, or an expected drop in synthetic drug use. Kansas Rep. Pat Colloton, R-Leawood, worked on the Kansas legislation and said that crafting laws aimed at synthetic drugs is complicated and time consuming. But it’s a worthwhile fight. “It’s not hopeless,” she said. But “it’s time to ramp up our effort.” But police and lawmakers may be missing the larger point and could find themselves spinning their wheels for years trying to keep up with drug makers, said Morgan Fox, spokesman for the Marijuana Policy Network. His answer? Legalize marijuana. “These substances have become popular because marijuana is illegal,” said Fox, who emphasized that his organization does not support the use of any untested, synthetic substances. Legalize marijuana and “the market (for synthetic

drugs) would drop off.” Mark Kleiman, a UCLA professor who studies drug policy, also said legalizing marijuana would cut the market for synthetic versions of the drug. But the effects of synthetic drugs might be their downfall. They “could burn out because people are getting hurt,” Kleiman said.

Just around the corner Lt. Jim Norton from the Salina Police Department, and several others in law enforcement members interviewed for this article, were not optimistic about the fight against synthetic drugs, predicting a prolonged battle. As he occasionally does, Norton recently dropped by a Salina convenience store to check for the synthetic drugs that have sold there the past couple of years. Following the recent addition of yet another group of substances to the Kansas banned substance list, the shop should be cleared out of the product, Norton said. It was, and the glass case that previously sold

About the drugs There are basically two broad types of substances involved in the recent growth of synthetic drugs. Health officials say there is no known antidote for someone suffering adverse reactions to the drugs. When patients are present in the emergency room, doctors treat the various symptoms, some of which can be lifethreatening. After the first wave of K2 calls to poison control centers in 2009, such calls have skyrocketed, according to numbers from the Drug Enforcement Agency, or DEA. In 2010, poison control centers across the country fielded 3,200 calls in reference to synthetic drugs. In 2011, that number exceeded 13,000. Synthetic cannabinoids ! The first versions of these drugs, with brand names such as “Spice” and “K2,” contained a synthetic derivative of cannabinoids, the mind-altering chemical in marijuana. the drugs has been replaced by contact lenses that turn eyes unusual colors. Norton flipped his badge and spoke to the owner, who told Norton they’re not carrying any of the smokeable or snortable substances. Give it a week, Norton said, and there will be a fresh, legal batch in the case. “Will it ever stop? I don’t know,” Norton said. — Reporter Shaun Hittle can be reached at 832-7173. Follow him at

Those charges were eventually dropped. Bouncing Bears continues to be a licensed business in Kansas and maintains a website. Sloan declined comment.

Salina ! Salina law enforcement reports a surge in synthetic drug use during the past couple of years, as well as a rise in emergency hospital admissions because of synthetic drug overdoses. Until late 2010, a local store, the Grind, manufactured and sold various synthetic drugs. Eric Srack, a Salina businessman, operated the business but was arrested in 2010 and later convicted

of several drug crimes because his business was selling products containing substances banned in Kansas. On Dec. 21, 2010, a 21-year-old Kansas University student, who had been using synthetic drugs purchased at the Grind, was killed after he ran into a van on Interstate 135 in Salina.

Garden City ! On July 25, the Drug Enforcement Agency conducted Operation Logjam, in which law enforcement in nearly 100 cities conducted searches and made arrests for possession and manufacture of synthetic drugs. A tobacco shop in Garden City was searched and substances were seized, though a representative from the DEA declined to comment on the active investigation. — Shaun Hittle

with the Johnson County Sheriff’s Office. “We hadn’t seen it at all, and really there hadn’t been any discussions about it being here stateside,” said Morris, who was perhaps one of the first scientists to test the drugs found in stores. The use of K2 became a big enough concern that Johnson County officials asked for help from state lawmakers, including Rep. Pat Colloton, R-Leawood. “We were seeing some really weird stuff,” said Colloton, chairwoman of the Kansas House’s Corrections and Juvenile Justice committee. At a 2010 hearing about possible legislation to ban the substances in the synthetic drugs, several members of Taylor’s family testified. “It was painful, tragic testimony,” said Colloton, as the family detailed the unsuccessful fight to keep Taylor off the synthetic drugs. “It was powerful.” The Kansas Legislature passed a bill making Kansas the first state to ban several chemicals found in the synthetic drugs. That law went into effect July 1, 2010. A few months before, in February 2010, local and federal law enforcement searched S a c r e d Journey, seizing K2 and other substances. They also Sloan arrested Sacred Journey’s K2 distributor, 29-year-old Lawrence businessman Jonathan Sloan. Sloan operated, and continues to run, Bouncing Bear Botanicals, a speciality plant and herb business based in Oskaloosa, that distributes products nationwide. The Bouncing Bear warehouse was also searched. Sloan was charged in Jefferson County with multiple counts of possessing and distributing illegal drugs, but the charges against Sloan were later dropped. He was charged again in 2011, but those charges were also dropped. Representatives from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, which spearheaded the searches, have never explained the raid at Sacred Journey and declined comment for this article. A spokesman for the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Kansas said the office was involved in obtaining the search and arrest warrants but declined further comment. Sloan has never been charged in federal court. It’s not clear whether Sloan, who also declined comment for this article, continued to sell synthetic drugs through his business. But after the search, such products were never again seen on the shelves of Sacred Journey, according to law enforcement. Lawrence police say synthetic drugs have not been a big issue locally since the 2010 raid. Other manufacturers and distributors of the synthetic drugs in Kansas, however, were more aggressive in keeping the products available to users.

‘Public enemy No. 1’ Following Taylor’s death in 2010, Norton, the Salina police officer, said the “epidemic” of synthetic drug use reached a breaking point in his community. “I have never, in my 25year career, seen a drug that has put more people in the hospital like synthetic cannabinoids,” he said. Emergency room doctors at Salina Regional Hospital began telling him that overdoses of the synthetic drugs overtook methamphetamine as the most frequent drug cases at the hospital. Kier Swisher, co-director of the hospital’s emergency room, said there were times in the last couple of years when the emergency room would

see up to a person a day who had overdosed on synthetic drugs. Some were treated and released; others spent days in the hospital as doctors treated a whole host of medical problems. But the key challenge for Norton and other law officers was knowing whether the drugs they encountered were even illegal, as crafty drug makers stayed one step ahead of the curve, altering the chemicals in such drugs, skirting the new Kansas law. “What started out as two chemicals quickly evolved into 30 chemicals,” said Morris, the scientist. Norton and his drug task force had been keeping a close eye on the problem, but Taylor’s death pushed the issue to “public enemy No. 1,” Norton said. According to Norton, Taylor’s friends who were with him the day he ran onto the highway said Taylor smoked synthetic drugs heavily all day. He’d been riding with some friends around Salina, but became so violent and out of control that friends forced him from their vehicle. Driving around the center of town recently, Norton pulled up to a nondescript brick building near downtown Salina, and detailed how this building was one once the hub of a million-dollar drug manufacturing operation. And it was also most likely where the drugs Taylor smoked before his death were packaged. Overseas shipments of the newest, legal synthetic compounds would arrive at the building, and once there, it’d be mixed, packaged and labeled with names such as “Supernova“ and “Revelation.” While Sloan controlled the synthetic drug operation in Lawrence, the Salina operation was run by a 42-yearold Salina entrepreneur named Eric Srack, who also operated a local drug paraphernalia shop, Srack the Grind, where Taylor bought the drugs he smoked before his death. Later on, the products would be distributed by a variety of independent gasoline stations and tobacco stores in Salina, and branched out to other communities such as El Dorado and Abilene, Norton said. “It started as a legitimate business and ended as a criminal enterprise,” said Norton about Srack’s booming business. And opposed to the underground dealings of drug dealers of the past, Srack’s business was all out in the open. He even set up shop within view of the police station, the building adorned with psychedelic murals. As soon as the Salina police became aware of K2, they bought the product and shipped it to labs for testing. Once some of the chemicals in substances like K2 were banned in 2010, police had the tools to apply for search and arrest warrants against businesses such as Srack’s. The day after Taylor died, a detective went to the Grind and purchased some packets of synthetic drugs, which later tested positive for one of the banned substances. Srack was arrested and later

convicted of three felony counts of illegal drug distribution based on the detective’s purchases. He’ll be eligible for parole next year. Norton said the void left by Srack’s imprisonment was quickly filled by a Boise, Idaho, company named Zombie Matter. The business was run by Boise resident Mark Ciccarello, according to the Idaho Secretary of State’s office. Additional chemicals had been added to the banned Kansas list by 2011, but Zombie Matter was able to stay one step ahead, obtaining modified compounds from overseas, then distributing them to several Salina stores, where they’ve been sold on and off for the past year. Zombie Matter has since been dissolved in Idaho after failing to renew annual paperwork. But Ciccarello, who did not return requests for comment, began a new company in Idaho in 2012. It’s unclear whether the business distributes synthetic substances.

‘Like Russian roulette’ Inside the poison control center at the Kansas University Hospital, Daling McMoran, a short, intense man with bulky muscles, gets pretty worked up talking about synthetic drugs. “You’re playing with fire here,” he said. “I don’t have to make this stuff up. It’s like a horror movie.” For the past three years, McMoran, an educator with the poison control center, has been tasked with learning about synthetic drugs and then spreading the word about such substances to area schools and communities. Using scientific drawings of the chemical components of the various drugs that have populated the market the past few years, McMoran explains that the chemicals are built off the basic foundations of methamphetamine, LSD, PCP and marijuana. Crafty chemists simply tweak a chemical here or there, and create a temporarily legal compound found in synthetic drugs. His center began receiving calls from law enforcement about K2 in 2009. The bigger concerns came from emergency rooms encountering patients exhibiting a wide range of bizarre behaviors not seen before, even with methamphetamine use. Effects included increased heart rate, paranoia, agitation, hallucinations, seizures, aggressiveness and kidney failure. Numerous media reports from across the country have highlighted other violent and bizarre behaviors, including several cannibalistic attacks involving people who had ingested bath salts, another type of synthetic drug that mimics the effects of the street drug ecstasy. Several others have reportedly died of heart attacks. One big problem with the substances, whether they’re bath salts or synthetic cannabinoids, is the lack of uniformity, McMoran said, a concern echoed by others interviewed by the Journal-World. “They’re never the same from location to location,” he said. Drug users have some general idea what to expect when they smoke marijuana or snort cocaine, but a lack of quality control in synthetic drugs leaves the effects up to chance. “It’s like Russian roulette,” McMoran said. And there isn’t any guarantee that you’re even taking what you think you’re taking, Morris said. The chemical changes made since K2 hit the market in 2009 leave users with a widely unpredictable high. “In many ways, no one knows what’s in these products, even the vendors themselves,” Morris said. “It really is a buyer beware.” — Reporter Shaun Hittle can be reached at 832-7173.

BRIEFLY ICE leader resigns amid allegations WASHINGTON — A senior Obama administration political appointee and longtime aide to Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano resigned Saturday amid allegations of inappropriate sexual behavior lodged by at least three Immigration and Customs Enforcement employees. Suzanne Barr, chief of staff to Barr ICE Director John Morton, said in her resignation letter that the allegations against her are “unfounded.” But she said she was stepping down anyway to end distractions within the agency. ICE, a division of the Homeland Security Department, confirmed Barr had resigned. The Associated Press obtained a copy of Barr’s letter. Barr is accused of sexually inappropriate behavior toward employees. The complaints are related to a sexual discrimination and retaliation lawsuit filed by a senior ICE agent in May.

Suicide attack kills 12 in Afghanistan KABUL, AFGHANISTAN — Two suicide attackers, one driving a fuel tanker, blew themselves up near a U.S. base in eastern Afghanistan on Saturday, killing at least 12 people, officials said. The attack around dawn in the town of Sayed Abad in Wardak province, about 40 miles from Kabul, served as a reminder that even after a decade of fighting, tens of thousands of U.S. and foreign troops are still engaged in a war that shows no signs of slowing down despite the start of a withdrawal of coalition forces. The U.S.-led NATO coalition said that no American or coalition troops were killed in the blasts. It confirmed that a number of troops were wounded but did not say how many, in accordance with coalition policy.

Iran, North Korea sign technology deal TEHRAN, IRAN — Iran and North Korea signed a scientific and technological cooperation agreement Saturday, bringing the two nations deeply at odds with the U.S. closer together. Iranian state TV did not provide further details on the document but said it will include setting up joint scientific and technological laboratories, exchange of scientific teams between the two countries and transfer of technology in the fields of information technology, energy, environment, agriculture and food. Any technical accord between Pyongyang and Tehran is likely to raise suspicions in the West. The U.S. has repeatedly accused North Korea of providing Iran with advanced missiles capable of targeting Western European capitals.




Fiery Obama embarks on march to convention By Ben Feller and David Espo Associated Press

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — President Barack Obama lampooned the just-completed Republican National Convention as better-suited to an era of black-and-white TV and “trickle-down, you’re on your own” economics Saturday, and declared that Mitt Romney “did not offer a single new idea” to fix the economy. “There was a lot of talk about hard truths and bold choices, but no one actually told you what they were,” Obama said in Iowa, chuckling, as he set out on a threeday tour of battleground states in the run-up to his own convention. Later, Obama said, the Republican gathering was so rooted in the past, there should have been a rabbit-ears antenna on the convention hall. Yet even the site of Obama’s convention, Charlotte, N.C., served as an unwelcome reminder to the Democrats of an economy so weak that it threatens his chances for re-election.

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA SPEAKS during a campaign event at Morningside College on Saturday in Sioux City, Iowa. The president carried North Carolina in 2008, but the state’s unemployment rate is pegged at 9.6 percent, well higher than the nation’s 8.3 percent and tied with next-door South Carolina for fifth from the bottom. Obama’s convention opens Tuesday at the Time Warner Cable arena with evening speeches by first lady Michelle Obama and San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro, the keynote speaker.

The president will be nominated for a new term on Wednesday, when former President Bill Clinton also will speak. Vice President Joe Biden delivers his own acceptance speech the same evening. Obama’s prime-time acceptance speech, to be delivered at the outdoor Bank of America Stadium, caps the convention on Thursday night. Aides predict a capacity crowd will hear the speech at the site,

GOP paints a nation on brink; Democrats see rebound By Donna Cassata Associated Press

TAMPA, FLA. — Listening to Republicans, a vote for Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan is imperative to save the nation. “The republic of Washington and Jefferson is now in danger of becoming the democracy of debt and despair,” Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul told delegates at the GOP convention delegates this past week. “Our great nation is coming apart at the seams.” He was one of many Republican speakers who tried to tap into the public’s unease about the country’s future. In just days, Democrats will present a starkly different vision at their

three-day convention in Charlotte, N.C., sketching out a portrait of a nation on the rebound after the worst financial crisis since the Depression. They will try to play a consistent theme in America’s history — optimism. As Republicans convened in Tampa, President Barack Obama gave a preview of his pitch, telling a crowd in Charlottesville, Va., “We knew that solving our biggest challenges would take more than one year, or one term, or one president. We know we’ve still got a lot of work to do, but we are determined to get it done. We are determined to finish the job.” The November election offers the political parties’ sharply different visions of the state of America,

which has a capacity of nearly 74,000 for football. Democrats are taking their turn in the convention spotlight just days after the Republicans met in Tampa, Fla., to nominate former Massachusetts Gov. Romney for the White House and Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan to be vice president. A parade of speakers in Tampa excoriated Obama’s handling of the economy, which is struggling in the weakest recession recovery of the postWorld War II era. The economy has been the top-rated issue in opinion polls all year, and the president is eager to turn the focus onto Romney on that subject. Republicans “will take us backwards,” Obama said, to the age of “trickle-down, you’re on your

own” economics that begin with tax cuts for the rich but tax increases for the middle class. The president made a brief detour to foreign policy in his speech. “Gov. Romney had nothing to say about Afghanistan this week or the plans for the 33,000 troops who will have come home from the war by the end of this month,” he said. The Republican challenger “said ending the war in Iraq was tragic. I said we’d end that war and we did,” Obama said. Romney said late last year, in a veterans roundtable, “The precipitous withdrawal is unfortunate. It’s more than unfortunate; I think it’s tragic. It puts at risk many of the victories that were hard won by the men and women who served there.”

as well as of the government’s role and reach. Republicans envision a smaller government, with fewer social safety net programs, increased defense spending, less regulations and additional tax cuts. Democrats see a government able to lift those who need help and a nation where the wealthier pay more of their share. In the 10 weeks to the vote, the campaigns will present their competing views of the United States, a country plunged into the darkness of joblessness and debt versus one emerging into the light of recovery. Which vision stays with the electorate on Nov. 6 will determine whether Obama wins a second term or Romney captures the presidency.

New U.N. Syria envoy puts pressure on Assad’s regime By Hamza Hendawi Associated Press

BEIRUT — The U.N.’s new envoy to Syria told President Bashar Assad’s regime on Saturday that change is both “urgent” and “necessary” and that it must meet the “legitimate” demands of the Syrian people, words that will not win the seasoned Algerian diplomat and international trouble shooter any friends in Damascus.

this call is primarily directed to the government.

The Syrian people must be satisfied, and their legitimate demands are met,” he said. The latest violence in Aleppo shows that government forces are still struggling to regain full control of the city from the lightly-armed rebels nearly five weeks after they stormed their way into the city in a surprise offensive. The Syrian Observatory for Human Right activist group said Saturday’s clashes in Aleppo were concentrated in several tense neighborhoods — Masaken Hanano, Bustan al-Qasr, Sukkari and Maysar. It reported injuries and damage to buildings but gave no specific figures. Another activist group, the Local Coordination Committees, said the government was making heavy use of warplanes in attacking rebel areas.

Wrong order City commissioners shouldn’t move forward on a rezoning proposal before other details of a proposed recreation complex are in place.


he Lawrence City Commission’s plan to consider on Tuesday whether to rezone 146 acres at the northwest corner of Sixth Street and the South Lawrence Trafficway seems like it’s putting the cart before the horse. Commissioners are scheduled to vote Tuesday on whether to rezone that property to allow commercial and retail uses at the site. About 50 acres of the site have been targeted for the development of a new complex that will include a large recreation center and new Kansas University track and field facilities. The rest of the site, city officials say, needs to be zoned commercial to accommodate other uses such as hotels, restaurants and retail stores that are expected to accompany the recreation complex development. The plan is for a development group led by Duane Schwada to donate land for the sports complex and for another group led by Thomas Fritzel to build the recreation center and enter into a multimillion-dollar, 20-year lease-purchase agreement with the city. But none of the proposed contracts that would facilitate those plans has been made public, and, as of Friday, they were not part of the agenda for Tuesday’s commission meeting. The public also has received no details about the city’s agreement with KU related to the track and field facilities. Rezoning this property before nailing down other details seems like the wrong order. There are a couple of ways commissioners could deal with this situation. They still could add contracts or other documents to this Tuesday’s agenda, but that would be a shame because it would give the public so little time to absorb the details before they are acted upon. If the rezoning is approved on Tuesday, it won’t become official until the ordinance gets a second reading, which might occur as early as next week. But commissioners could approve the rezoning on first reading but delay second-reading approval until the development agreements are ready for consideration. In any event, it’s unwise to complete the rezoning on this property before final agreements on the recreation complex are in place. Even if those plans are on track and all the involved parties currently are on the same page, things happen. The city doesn’t want to rezone that property and then have the recreation complex fall through. That’s why the city’s normal procedure for such major projects is to have a full development plan in place before approving rezoning. This is a big project with a lot of pieces. City officials need to make sure those pieces all work together before taking any major action on the complex.

Reality tempers foreign policy shifts I’ve just returned from a gorgeous Maine vacation in time to follow the hoopla of the presidential conventions (from the sublime to the ridiculous?). I’ll be writing on Mitt Romney’s foreign-policy potential — and President Obama’s performance — as the conventions progress. But having read the GOP’s foreign-policy platform, with its slashing critique of the president, I can already say this: A Romney foreign policy would likely wind up looking much like Obama’s. Despite a call for another “American century” in which we possess the “strongest military and strongest economy,” a President Romney would soon confront the realities of today’s world. For starters, a hefty part of the GOP’s foreign-policy platform, and its call for global leadership, focuses on boosting the size and weaponry of the military. Indeed, Romney wants to jack up defense spending even while slashing taxes. That dream will soon fade if he reaches the White House. The numbers simply will not add up. The biggest threat to the defense budget comes from possible across-the-board defense cuts that will be triggered if the two parties can’t agree on how to slash the deficit. The onus is on Republicans, who voted for the automatic cuts and have refused to consider a compromise with Democrats that could avoid them. Even if a bipartisan miracle occurs, and a compromise is agreed to, the economy won’t sustain the kind of defense budget Republicans dream of. President Romney would

Despite a call for another “American century” in which we possess the “strongest military and strongest economy,” a President Romney would soon confront the realities of today’s world.” be forced to make the same calculations as did Obama: how to protect U.S. security and sustain America’s global leadership in an era of budgetary restraint. There are hints that some of the platform’s authors recognize the problem. The document ignores Iraq, and hardly mentions Afghanistan (except to take a swipe at Obama’s plan to withdraw the last of 30,000 “surge troops” before the November elections). But last week, Romney’s choice for vice president, Rep. Paul Ryan, said Obama’s 2014 deadline to draw down most U.S. troops was a “good, reasonable timeline.” In other words, some Republicans conclude, as Obama did, that we can’t indefinitely maintain a large fighting force in foreign countries. That same collision with reality is likely to temper other GOP foreign-policy dreams. On fighting terrorism, the platform bizarrely chides

Obama for dropping the phrase global war on terror and attacks his “weak” response to international terrorism. His decision to green-light the operation that killed Osama bin Laden barely elicits a snide comment. Yet Romney would no doubt find himself following the same antiterrorist policy as Obama’s — using drones and special forces — because so few good options exist. And then there’s Iran, and the effort to halt Tehran’s suspected nuclear enrichment program. The platform denounces Obama’s “failed engagement policy” with Iran, leaving out any mention of the draconian international sanctions imposed on Tehran under U.S. pressure. Despite his bellicose rhetoric about military options, a President Romney would soon hear from Pentagon brass that the costs of a military strike on Iran’s enrichment sites would be high, and might not even stop Iran’s nuclear program. He’d also hear that if Israel attacks Tehran on its own (encouraged by Republican leaders), this would further inflame an unstable region, while practically guaranteeing Iran would go for a bomb. In other words, Romney would face the same roster of bad choices that confronts Obama. He’d learn that the threat of an Islamist takeover of nuclear-armed Pakistan is far more dangerous than the uncertain likelihood of an Iranian nuclear breakout. (Pakistan is hardly mentioned in the Republican platform, except for the bromide that we should “expect” the Pakistan government to

sever connections with insurgents. Good luck!) And as for Israel — for which the Republican platform pledges “unequivocal support” — a Romney White House would also be faced with the tragic realities that Obama confronted. Obama, too, offered unequivocal support to Israel. He envisioned two democratic states, Israel and Palestine, side by side, with secure borders — as the Republican platform specifies. But here’s what the platform ignores: Any prospect of a two-state solution is being foreclosed by Jewish settlements that divide the occupied West Bank into cantons. Even if the Mideast stabilizes, and new Arab leaders seek peace, the two-state option will no longer exist. Republicans castigated Obama for trying (unsuccessfully) to persuade Israel that its settlement policy was selfdestructive. But a Romney presidency would have to deal with the repercussions of a policy that locks Israelis and Palestinians into one state. The bottom line: It’s easy to talk tough, and channel the ghost of Ronald Reagan, when writing a foreign-policy platform. But once in the White House, Republicans would find that — in these straitened times — it’s much tougher to project American power, and takes more careful calculation. One can debate how best to project U.S. leadership in such times. My guess is that Romney would find himself following Obama’s lead far more than he anticipates, or would like. — Trudy Rubin is a columnist and editorial-board member for the Philadelphia Inquirer.



From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for Sept. 2, 1912: “Labor Day in the YEARS southern part of DougAGO las county is to be spent IN 1912 by the residents of that part of the county in working upon the old Santa Fe Trail to make some needed repairs and put the road in shape for tourist travel. It is a novel scheme that has been worked out in Baldwin and the operation should give Douglas county a splendid piece of roadway. In Baldwin all business is to be suspended during the entire day and the day observed as one of real labor.” — Compiled by Sarah St. John

Obama shows hostility to business From time to time in my county wanderings, I’ve stopped for a pulled pork sandwich at an imitation caboose in a shopping center parking lot. Nearby, is a miniature trolley car where I’ve sometimes ordered an espresso. Whenever I visit these modest establishments, I’m overcome with admiration. Someone may have risked his life’s savings to pursue the dream of going into business for himself. The proprietors have to be accountants, salesmen, servers, employers, janitors. Small businesses such as these are the chief creators of jobs in America. Are these the kind of people Barack Obama had in mind when he unleashed his “You didn’t build that” diatribe? It wasn’t a gaffe. It was a passionate, spontaneous expression of his scorn for free enterprise and individual initiative. And it wasn’t so much the content as the tone that was so shocking — angry, accusatory, resentful. He couldn’t resist mocking successful people who think they’re “just so smart” — this from a man who must always feel that he’s the smartest person in the room. The idea that someone might make it on his own is an offense to his ideology. Not that it should have surprised anyone. According to David Maraniss in his biography “Barack Obama: The

George Gurley

Obama creates a phony and toxic argument by casting government and the private sector as antagonists.” Story,” the president told his mother that his experience at Business International was like “working for the enemy,” and in his own memoir, “Dreams from my Father,” he referred to the same stint as being “Like a spy behind enemy lines.” He’s of the mindset that believes people get rich simply by taking more than their share. In his view, it’s the job of government to erect barriers so they can’t steal more. He talks about “spreading the wealth,” but hasn’t voiced a single idea for how to grow the wealth, other than more government spending. Hiring more bureaucrats is one of his bright ideas for stimulating the economy. The president paid lip service to “this wonderful sys-

tem” we have, but here again he showed his fundamental misunderstanding of the American economy. It’s not a “system” we have. It’s the opposite – a decentralized market energized by millions of enterprising individuals, a dynamo powered by trail and error, success and failure. A system is what people like Obama dream of — a centrally controlled, top-down economy, with resources allocated and economic decisions dictated by the government. Obama’s screed was a haymaker delivered to a colossal straw man, as someone pointed out. No rational person disputes the fact that we need government and that government does many things that the private sector can’t do. No one denies the virtues of “people working together” or the importance of roads, bridges and teachers. But in Obama’s view, these factors are the primary causes of individual success. No one disputes the fact that the top earners ought to pay taxes. In fact, they pay the lion’s share. Obama creates a phony and toxic argument by casting government and the private sector as antagonists. They should complement each other and do what they do best. Unfortunately, today they’re either at each other’s throats or in bed together. Obama ought to be cheer-

ing for the top earners to succeed, since they provide the funds that permit him to pander to various interest groups for votes. But apparently it’s impossible for him to express any admiration for American business persons. Vultures? Predators? Does Obama’s list of enemies include people like George Foreman, who after a stellar career in boxing, made a barbecue equipment fortune, which he’s busy giving away? It’s astonishing that we have a president who’s so hostile to the ideals that have inspired America’s greatness. And yet, in spite of his failed economic policies, at least half the country seems ready to vote him another four years. The only explanation has to be that many of us have bought into the illusion that the government is a generous uncle who distributes benefits cost-free and that Obama will protect these benefits. It doesn’t seem to matter that they’re being financed by borrowed money — a form of fiscal suicide. Most of us are unwilling to give up an iota of our entitlements even to secure their sustainability, even if it means long term national decline. Americans used to celebrate liberty and opportunity. Now it’s, “Don’t touch my benefits,” and “Take care of me.” — George Gurley, a resident of rural Baldwin City, writes a regular column for the Journal-World.

THE JAYHAWKS COME TOGETHER TO SING THE ALMA MATER following their 31-17 victory over South Dakota State on Saturday at Memorial Stadium.

Jayhawks run past Jackrabbits By Matt Tait

It has been a long time since a football team at Kansas University did something that deserved to be compared to the magical 2007 squad, which finished 12-1 and won the Orange Bowl. But it was that kind of effort in Memorial Stadium on Saturday night that led the Jayhawks to a 31-17 season-opening victory against South Dakota State. The new quarterback might have entered the game with all of the hype, but it was a pair of KU run-

For so much of Dayne Crist’s debut as Kansas University’s quarterback, Peggy Lee, a late singer from a bygone era, came to mind. You could almost hear her singing, “Is that all there is?” Landing Crist, the big, bright, thick, strong-armed born leader who spent four years at Notre Dame, sparked so much excitement among a fan base that had been bored stiff the past two years. One game into his KU career, Crist remains the most compelling figure on the football team, but for a different reason. Now intrigue

Kilwein helps KU sweep Classic J-W Staff Reports

Former Free State High runner Kyra Kilwein opened her senior season at Kansas University with a victory Saturday at the soggy Bob Timmons Classic at Rim Rock Farm. Kilwein, who won the same event for KU in 2010, finished the 5K race in 18:56.0 for the victorious Jayhawks,

who totaled 94 points to Oral Roberts’ 239. UMKC did not have a team score. The KU men, led by senior Josh Baden’s 6K time of 19:49.0, also won with 91 points. UMKC had 188, Oral Roberts 472 and Highland Community College 535. “It really helps. Rim Rock is my baby course. I have been running here since Free State,” Kilwein said of run-

ning at home. “I have run this course many times. This (winning) really helps bring up my confidence. I think this KU team is going to have a really great year. “Our team did a really good job the first mile-anda-half working together,” Kilwein added. “I think there were at least six or seven KU girls really close together, and that’s what our coach

wanted us to do — work together as a team.” Kilwein was followed by freshman Hannah Richardson, who placed second overall in 19:07.7.

McIlroy fires 65, takes Deutsche lead NORTON, MASS. (AP) — The Deutsche Bank Championship has had a fair amount of heavyweight bouts in only 10 years. This Labor Day weekend is shaping up as another one, featuring two generations of players. Rory McIlroy at times made McIlroy it look easy on his way to another 6-under 65 to take the 36-hole lead. Tiger Woods couldn’t buy a putt and still had a 68, leaving him two shots behind. In between was Louis Oosthuizen, a former Brit-

ish Open champion with one of the purest swings in golf. McIlroy went from one extreme to another on par 5s only 30 minutes apart, but he steadied himself down the stretch on the TPC Boston to set an early target Saturday. No one could catch him in the afternoon, and the two-time major champion wound up at 12-under 130. He had a one-shot lead over Oosthuizen, who had four 2s on his card, including a chip-in on the short par-4 fourth hole, and had a 65. Ryan Moore had a 68, despite playing the front nine in 1 over, and joined Woods at 10-under 132. Woods missed out on a

chance to be paired with McIlroy today when he missed the fairway on the par-5 18th, laid up short of the marsh and came up just short of the green and its front hole location. He had to get up-and-down for par. The TPC Boston is where Woods and Vijay Singh had a memorable battle on Labor Day in 2004, when Singh won to replace Woods at No. 1 in the world. Two years later, Woods closed with a 63 to rally from a three-shot deficit against Singh. And in the first year of the FedEx Cup in 2007, it was Phil Mickelson who played three rounds with Woods and wound up beating him by two shots.

Penn State draws crowd, but Ohio wins, 24-14 STATE COLLEGE, PA. (AP) — They came to Happy Valley, 90,000 strong, to chant and cheer and stand by their team in a new era of Penn State football. By the end, as the Nittany Lions trudged off the field, a battered fan base would need at least another week to celebrate. Hours after fans made their cathartic drive to Beaver Stadium, handmade signs and banners attached to their RVs, they quietly sang their alma mater. You know, the song with the lyrics, “May no act of ours bring shame.� But in a clear display of coach Bill O’Brien’s challenge ahead, the new, short-handed Nittany Lions wore down in the second half, and Ohio, from the MidAmerican Conference, defeated Penn State, 24-14, on Saturday. It was a sad ending for a devoted fan base that came ready to rock the house, after scandal rocked the program. “I thought it was a great atmosphere,� O’Brien said, “in the stands at Beaver Stadium.� Indeed it was, despite the loss. O’Brien, in fact, led the charge in the first home opener without Joe Paterno since 1949, his players behind him, storming the field as more than 97,000 fans kicked off a new chapter in the program’s tarnished history with a raucous and sustained ovation. Then came the familiar refrain that has echoed through the stadium for decades: “We are ... Penn State!� The Nittany Lions want to make headlines for more than lurid tales of child abuse. As a result, this opener was about more than football. And it showed. Penn State held a moment of reflection Saturday for all victims of sexual abuse. Penn State also asked fans to pause and know that all those affected by abuse are remembered in their hearts. Then, a university accused of placing football above all turned the page when it invited 600 athletes from all of its sports teams to participate in the pregame show as part of Penn State’s “One Team� motto. Yes, this would be a time to remember all those hurt. But the tagline in the scoreboard highlight video made it clear Penn State’s program was ready for “the next chapter.� When the team arrived at the stadium, O’Brien, the former offensive coordinator with the New England Patriots, was the first person to deboard off bus No. 1, followed by his game captains Derek Day, Jordan Hill, Gerald Hodges and Matt McGloin. Boisterous fans waited at the tunnel entrance for hours and lined the road like a parade route as they waited for team busses. They showed love for the former coach with chants of “Joe Pa-ter-no!� before turning their shrieks toward O’Brien. There were thunderous roars for the players as they exited the bus. Clearly, the fans showed they will stand by the players that stuck with the program.

Woods and McIlroy might be the next one. “I think if you look at the overall list of champions here, they’re all big hitters,� Woods said in an effort to explain why the Deutsche Bank Championship provides such great theater. McIlroy, who won the PGA Championship by a record eight shots at Kiawah Island three weeks ago, looked comfortable on the smoother greens of TPC Boston and had only one bad spell of back-to-back bogeys on his back nine to reach the midway point at 12-under 130. “Everything seemed to work pretty well out there,� McIlroy said.

SERENA WILLIAMS RETURNS A SHOT TO Ekaterina Makarova during the third round of the U.S. Open. Williams won the match, 6-4, 6-0, on Saturday in New York.

Serena avenges loss, prevails at U.S. Open NEW YORK — Serena Williams does not enjoy viewing videos of her losses. Not one bit. She used to engage in that sort of film work, Williams said, but “it was so painful; it was like stabbing myself.� So even though Williams knew her thirdround opponent at the U.S. Open would be the same woman she lost to at the Australian Open, preparing by studying a replay of that January defeat simply was out of the question. After splitting Saturday’s first eight games against 42nd-ranked Ekaterina Makarova of Russia, the fourth-seeded Williams got into high gear and breezed to a 6-4, 6-0 victory, reeling off the last eight games. “Definitely was motivated. Knowing that I lost; could definitely happen again. Did not want that to happen,� said Williams, who hit 13 aces to raise her tour-leading total this season to 408. “I really hate watching matches that I lose, unless I’m punishing myself,� added the 14-time Grand Slam champion. “I didn’t punish myself.� She hasn’t been losing much lately. Since the only first-round Grand Slam exit of her career, against 111th-ranked Virginie Razzano at the French Open on May 29, Williams is 22-1 in singles, including the title at Wimbledon and gold medal at the London Olympics. Olympic champion Andy Murray, still seeking his first Grand Slam title after four losses in finals, eked out a 7-6 (5), 7-6 (5), 4-6, 7-6 (4) victory over No. 30 Feliciano Lopez, who led in each of the three tiebreakers before faltering. Former No. 1 Ana Ivanovic overcame a poor start, 56 unforced errors and a partisan crowd to beat 19-year-old American Sloane Stephens, 6-7 (4), 6-4, 6-2. Ivanovic also eliminated Stephens in the third round at Flushing Meadows a year ago.


Fan dies after fall in Georgia ATLANTA — A 20-year-old fan from Tennessee was drinking alcohol before he fell to his death in the Georgia Dome and struck another man, who was injured, authorities said Saturday. Isaac Grubb of Lenoir City, Tenn., was killed Friday night when he fell over a 33-inch railing and plummeted to the lower level of the downtown Atlanta stadium during the TennesseeNorth Carolina State game. Grubb had been cheering Tennessee’s second touchdown when the accident happened around 8:23 p.m., said Frank Poe, executive director of the Georgia World Congress Center Authority, which operates the stadium. Grubb, who was too young to legally buy alcohol, started drinking around 5 p.m., more than three hours before the accident, said Lt. Chad Hurston of the authority’s police department. Investigators are awaiting results from the medical examiner’s office before determining whether alcohol was a major factor in the accident, Hurston said. An autopsy was planned.


Gillispie remains hospitalized LUBBOCK, TEXAS — Texas Tech coach Billy Gillispie said he experienced what felt like a “stroke or a heart attack� before being hospitalized Friday. Gillispie said in an interview for a story published in the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal Saturday that he called 911 early Friday morning after experiencing severe pain. University Medical Center spokesman Eric Finley told The Associated Press that Gillispie would stay at the hospital Saturday night and is still in satisfactory condition.


Stenhouse Nationwide winner HAMPTON, GA. — Ricky Stenhouse Jr. used a late push from runner-up Brad Keselowski to pass Kevin Harvick and win the Nationwide race at Atlanta Motor Speedway on Saturday night. After a restart with three laps to go, Harvick lost the lead on the final lap as his car got loose coming out of Turn 2 and, Stenhouse, who was bumped by Keselowski on the front straightaway, went ahead for good in Turn 3. Stenhouse, the defending series champion, raced to his fourth Nationwide victory of the season, and moved within 12 points of leader Elliott Sadler.


U.S. women win; coach resigns ROCHESTER, N.Y. — Abby Wambach kicked off the U.S. women’s soccer team’s victory tour — and Pia Sundhage’s final stretch as American coach — by scoring twice in a 8-0 exhibition victory over Costa Rica on Saturday. The U.S. team’s first game since winning the gold medal at the Olympics last month was a homecoming for Wambach. And her return was overshadowed by Sundhage, who announced hours before the game that she is stepping down and returning to her native Sweden.

Sporting K.C. trips Toronto, 2-1 KANSAS CITY, KAN. — Oriol Rosell scored his first MLS goal in the 87th minute, lifting Sporting Kansas City to a 2-1 victory over Toronto FC on Saturday night. Paulo Nagamura had a goal and an assist for Sporting (15-7-5), which moved into a tie for the overall points lead with San Jose. Kansas City is 4-0-1 over its past five matches, while Toronto (5-16-6) is winless in its last seven. Rosell hit his game-winner from the corner of the penalty area on assists from Nagamura and Chance Myers. Ryan Johnson put Toronto up 1-0 in the 44th minute.

Jarmoc stars again; KU sweeps tourney J-W Staff Reports

Kansas University junior Caroline Jarmoc had a career game for the second day in a row, and the Jayhawks completed a sweep of the Kansas Invitational with a four-set victory over Arkansas State, Saturday at Horejsi Center. Jarmoc, who set a career high in kills with 16 on Friday against Sam Houston State, repeated the feat against Arkansas State in the 25-19, 28-30, 25-15, 25-17 victory. Jarmoc also contributed nine blocks and earned tournament MVP honors. “Offensively, people had a hard time answering her,” KU coach Ray Bechard said. “She continues to pick it up on defense and was changing Jarmoc the game with her block. She also created opportunities for us with her serve. She gave a wellrounded effort this weekend.” Two other Jayhawks, Sara McClinton and Erin

Manhattan placed second with 53. Gavin Fischer (17:00.01) placed second in the boys varsity 5K but was the only LHS runner in the top 25.

“Really (runners), one through seven we are all right there,” fourth-year KU assistant coach Michael Whittlesey said. “We can literally run as a pack of seven. The pack really isn’t that far apart, and that’s what we really need to focus on the next eight to 10 weeks, getting that pack closer and closer together up top.” Baden, a native of Colby, was followed closely by three Jayhawks who finished less than a second behind the winner. Reid Buchanan was sec-

I guess because I was the senior they let me go for it,” Baden said of being the first to cross the finish line. “It’s awesome having teammates that would do that for me.” As far as muddy conditions, he said: “The weather is beautiful. It’s just the course is all sloppy. There were a few spots on the

half and an intercepted pass from Haskell quarterback Maverick Lang in the fourth quarter — killed any chances for a comeback. Haskell (0-1) will play Robert Morris College at noon Saturday in its home opener.

I thought most of them ran well in a pack together, and it was great that they finished the way they did. They have been working hard, and I’m glad that showed today.”

Veritas football starts year with explosive 62-14 win By Benton Smith

We’re expecting to be explosive and hardseason hitting.”

Entering the opener with a new core group of players, Veritas Christian’s football team discovered Saturday night it is capable of scoring in bunches, just like the Eagles have done in the previous two-year stretch that included 20 wins and a 2010 Kansas Christian Athletic Association state championship. Veritas made football look easy at the Eagles’ Nest, destroying visiting Steelville, Mo., 62-14. No matter which play coach Doug Bennett and his staff called, odds were it was going to work. Veritas had six scoring drives of two plays or less and seven touchdowns on its nine offensive possessions. Big plays ruled the night, as the Eagles had just two first downs. Bennett didn’t expect that kind of one-sided performance against the Cardinals (0-2) nor that the Eagles (1-0) will be able to sustain such dominance week to week. “But our guys executed really well,” the coach said. “(Steelville’s) defensive scheme played into our hands.” When the Cardinals tried to attack the Veritas backfield, it usually led to an easy Eagles score. Steelville, in fact, set Veritas up for ideal chances on the Eagles’ first two possessions. SHS, which received the opening kickoff, inexplicably went for it on fourth down inside its own 10 on each of its first two drives. Veritas responded with a six-yard rushing score by Thatcher Martin and a seven-yard run to the end zone by Elijah Harvey, taking an early 16-0 lead. On the Cardinals’ next

— Veritas Christian quarterback Elijah Harvey after his team’s 62-14 season-opening victory possession, Veritas junior defensive end Martin recovered a fumble on the SHS 11-yard line after a botched snap. Just like that, Harvey ran for another score on first down and the Eagles held a 24-0 advantage, having run just four plays from scrimmage. By halftime — following a touchdown pass from Elijah Harvey to freshman Chad Stieben, a 48-yard rushing TD by senior Andrew Harvey, a 50-yard TD run by the younger Harvey brother, Elijah, and a 32-yard interception return for another score by Stieben — the Eagles led 54-14 and had run just 15 plays. Said Elijah Harvey, who accounted for five total touchdowns in his first career start at quarterback: “We’re expecting to be explosive and hard-hitting.” The Veritas defense, which earned its third takeaway in the victory on a third-quarter fumble recovery by freshman defensive end Ben Post, contained Steelville most of the night. “We’ve got our two seniors, Bryce (Boland, linebacker) and Andrew, and they’re beasts,” Elijah said. Bennett said the coaching staff won’t be satisfied with what the Eagles accomplished in the drubbing. “We still don’t know what our best personnel are, and that might change, based on our opponent and their strengths,” he said.

plays the past few weeks. We thought that one maybe had a chance to hit big, and it did,” Zenner said. His dash came on a firstdown call. Quarterback Eric Kline risked a safety by handing him the ball so deep in the end zone. “I mean, you’ve got to fall forward. That’s a priority always, especially when you are backed up,” Zenner said. Zenner finished with 183 yards off 23 carries. “For a running back to do well, it starts up front,” he said. “The offensive line has to have a great day, which it did. I played OK. There’s a few solos I wish wouldn’t have happened. You can’t have solo tackles.”

The Jackrabbits used a pair of quarterbacks on Saturday. Backup Eric Kline started and hit four of nine passes for 32 yards, no touchdowns and no interceptions. Projected starter Austin Sumner, who Stiegelmeier said would not play because of a hand injury, hit 14 of 31 passes for 175 yards, a TD and four interceptions. Stiegelmeier said Sumner wanted to play. A trainer called a team doctor back home in South Dakota, who apparently said it was OK. “Austin said he was ready to play. I didn’t think he would play. I really didn’t until ... I felt we needed to make some throws that weren’t being made,” Stiegelmeier said.


defense with his speed, newcomer Taylor Cox picked up the slack, rushing for 121 yards and a touchdown on 16 carries. It marked the first time two KU running backs topped the 100-yard mark in the same game since Brandon McAnderson and Jake Sharp did it against Central Michigan in 2007. “All the running backs, in conjunction with the offensive line, really carried the day,” senior quarterback Dayne Crist said. “They got us through some lulls, and (Cox and Pierson) both run incredibly hard, and we expect that out of them each week.” It might not have been the statement victory or the massive blowout many had hoped for and even expected. But it was a victory. And around here, that means quite a lot. KU now is 6-26 in its last 32 games. “Would I have liked to win by more, you betcha I would’ve,” KU coach Charlie Weis said. “But the way it played out, it gave us a lot of opportunity to grow. It was far from a thing of beauty, but I think it was a good start.” The game itself was anything but a good start for the Jayhawks (1-0). Not only did Kansas miss a 35-yard field goal and struggle to score despite starting with field position that almost was too good to be true throughout the first half, but the Jackrabbits (0-1) actually landed the first blow. After a KU punt was downed at the SDSU oneyard line, Weis was huddled

ran some pretty good football players,” SDSU coach John Stiegelmeier said. “He’s a good football player, a tough football player.” Zenner’s run erased the old school-record run of 95 yards, set by Mike Lunde in 1976. It also was the longest run ever against a KU defense, the Jayhawks having allowed two 95-yarders through the years “That’s pretty cool,” said Zenner, who tied KU’s Eric Vann for the longest run in Memorial Stadium history. Vann burned Oklahoma back in 1997. Gale Sayers also had a 99-yard TD run for KU, but that was at Nebraska in 1963. “We’ve been working on a lot of the same running

It never did. Instead, SDSU’s Zach Zenner broke through the line untouched and then outran the KU secondary for a 99-yard touchdown that gave the Jacks a 7-0 lead midway through the first quarter. Asked where the defensive breakdown occurred, Weis admitted to being in the dark at first. “I asked the same question,” he said. “We had two guys both flow to the outside, and one of them was supposed to be on the inside.” That was not the only time the Jayhawks were out of sync Saturday. Crist said after that game he was disappointed in his play, as he completed just 17 of 36 pass attempts and threw one interception. For some, Crist

was to blame. For others, his receivers. Weis even divulged that, on one occasion — a screen pass — the running-back target ran a completely different play. “They sound alike,” Weis said. “But he told me he was running a different play.” Thanks to KU’s rushing attack, along with five takeaways by a defense that seemed to be allergic to turnovers during the past couple of seasons, the opening-night miscues hardly mattered. Pierson quickly got the Jayhawks back on track with a three-yard TD run on the final offensive play of the first quarter. He followed that — and a Ron Doherty field goal — with a 47-yard TD run to open the third, and those plays put the Jayhawks firmly in control. “He never ceases to amaze me,” Crist said. Not to be outdone, Cox made sure to deliver as well. After coughing up a fumble at

the SDSU 20 midway through the second quarter, Cox was nothing but solid from that point. He had multiple double-digit gains, including a powerful 39-yard bruising rumble that set up his threeyard TD in the fourth. “I definitely came back more motivated after that,” Cox said of the fumble. Not all of the highlights came on the ground. The KU defense blocked two punts (Josh Ford and Chris Omigie), recovered a fumble (Josh Williams) and picked off four passes (two for Bradley McDougald and one each for Tyler Patmon and Corrigan Powell). And then there was the opening play of the game, when Crist connected with senior Kale Pick for a 43yard bomb that brought the 46,601 fans to their feet. “I was throwing it deep on the first play for months,” Weis said. “I was trying to score.”

HOW THEY SCORED First Quarter 8:33 — Zach Zenner 99 run. Justin Syrovatka kick. After going threeand-out on the opening drive, the Jackrabbits responded to a nice special-teams play from Kansas by ripping off the longest run in school history. Zenner took the ball through the right side of the line and went untouched the entire way, outrunning KU’s secondary for the final 60 yards. (SDSU 7, KU 0). 0:06 — Tony Pierson 3 run. Ron Doherty kick. After a slow start, the Jayhawks finally capitalized on stellar field position, with a seven-play, 47-yard scoring drive that took 3:33. Quarterback Dayne Crist connected on three straight passes to open the drive, including a key third-down conversion bullet to senior receiver Kale Pick. (KU 7, SDSU 7).

Second Quarter 5:05 — Ron Doherty 22 field goal. KU’s second blocked punt gave the Jayhawks their first lead. Junior wide receiver Josh Ford blocked and recovered an SDSU punt to set up the scoring drive, which covered four plays, two yards and 55 seconds. (KU 10, SDSU 7). Third Quarter 10:22 — Pierson 47 run. Doherty kick. KU turned away South Dakota State’s first possession of the second half with a fourth-down stop, and five plays later Pierson did what KU coach Charlie Weis has been saying all offseason he could — score from anywhere on the field. After breaking through the line untouched, Pierson made a wide turn around the SDSU safety and then raced past him to the end zone. The drive covered 65 yards in five plays and 1:14. (KU 17, SDSU 7).

5:29 — Mike Ragone 2 pass from Crist. Doherty kick. A Bradley McDougald interception off a high pass from SDSU QB Austin Sumner set the Jayhawks up deep in Jackrabbits territory once again, and after five straight runs from Taylor Cox, Crist threw the first TD pass of his KU career to his old Notre Dame buddy on fourth down. KU’s fourth scoring drive covered 30 yards seven plays and 3:54. (KU 24, SDSU 7). Fourth Quarter 12:52 — Tyrel Kool 22 pass from Austin Sumner. Syrovatka kick. A pass-interference call on KU cornerback Greg Brown on third-and-long kept SDSU’s drive alive, and Sumner, who started the game on the bench because of an injury, delivered a few strikes to get the Jackrabbits into the end zone. SDSU’s scoring drive took 2:57 and

covered 80 yards in nine plays. (KU 24, SDSU 14). 8:39 — Justin Syrovatka 25 field goal. Sumner continued to pump life into the SDSU offense, leading a fiveplay, 48-yard drive in 1:32 that pulled the Jackrabbits within seven. Sumner’s 42-yard bomb to Brandon Hubert on the first play of the drive set up the kick, and a three-and-out on KU’s previous possession allowed the Jacks to hang close. (KU 24, SDSU 17). 5:36 — Taylor Cox 3 run. Doherty kick. The Jayhawks responded with an eight-play, 75-yard drive that took 3:03 and featured a lot of carries by Cox. Three completions from Crist got the drive going and a 39-yard rumble by Cox on third-and-one set up the TD. (KU 31, SDSU 17).

Weis: Atmosphere good, but it’ll be better By Jesse Newell

So far, Charlie Weis says he’s happy with Kansas’ newest football tradition. The KU football players — as promised — made their way over in front of the student section following their 31-17 victory over South Dakota State on Saturday, where they sang the alma mater with the KU students still there. “I was generally very pleased that there were enough students there, and the band came out there,” Weis said. “Being over there for that, that’s what I’m hoping for. It’ll just get better.” KU’s players seemed

KU students — about half remained from the start of the game — also streamed down the aisles to be closer to the team. “If you looked at our players, they genuinely had joy in their face,” Weis said. “Then you looked at the student body … they enjoyed connecting with the football players.” The KU band members even rushed to the field to make sure the alma mater could be heard clearly. “Some of the tuba playNick Krug/Journal-World Photo ers might be mad, beKANSAS COACH CHARLIE WEIS, LEFT, and receivers cause they’re still coming coach Rob Ianello call a timeout in the first quarter. out of the stands when they started playing right to enjoy celebrating with interceptions and six tack- there,” Weis said with a their fellow classmates. les, was the first one over, smile. “I thought it was a Senior safety Bradley waving his hands in the air good start. It was a pretty McDougald, who had two to pump up the crowd. good experience.”

KU senior Toben Opurum agreed. “It was a lot of fun, because we haven’t done anything like that before,” Opurum said. “We’re glad a lot of the student section remained to the end, and we were able to interact with the crowd. It was a lot of fun, and it really helped us enjoy the victory that we had.” Weis reiterated that it would be an every-game tradition. “The problem is, you lose, you go over there, and there might not be anyone you’re singing with,” Weis said. “But I don’t think you can be hypocritical. I think if you’re going to do it, you should be doing it no matter what. That’s why I

keep on encouraging students to be around there for it, because it makes it that much better.” Overall, Weis said he was pleased with the atmosphere during his first game at Memorial Stadium. “I think that the only time that it got quiet was deservedly so, because I thought there were periods of the game where we were flat,” Weis said. “Like I said to the players on the sideline, ‘Hey fellas, you’ve got to create the juice now,’ because there were times it was really loud and the fans were going nuts, and there were times it was really quiet. Usually those quiet times were directly related to how we were playing.”

No. 2 Tide rolls over No. 8 Michigan Playing before a 5050 crowd at the Georgia Dome — basically halfway between the two campuses — Clemson shook off any hangover from last season’s embarrassing 70-33 loss to West Virginia in the Orange Bowl and showed plenty of offense against Auburn (0-1).

The Associated Press

No. 2 Alabama 41, No. 8 Michigan 14 ARLINGTON, TEXAS — AJ McCarron threw two touchdown passes and Alabama’s retooled defense showed it could still dominate as the Crimson Tide pounded Michigan on Saturday night. Even after sending three starting defenders from last year’s national championship team to the NFL as first-round draft picks, the Crimson Tide threw around the Wolverines while stifling and pounding dual-threat quarterback Denard Robinson. C.J. Mosley returned an interception 16 yards for a touchdown. Dee Milliner had four pass breakups and an interception in the first half that set up a score after he shoved the intended receiver to the ground on the sideline. This certainly wasn’t what Michigan expected coming off an 11-win season under first-year coach Brady Hoke that ended with the Wolverines’ first BCS victory since the 1999 season. McCarron no longer has Trent Richardson to hand off to, but T.J. Yeldon and Eddie Lacy both ran for scores. No. 1 USC 49, Hawaii 10 LOS ANGELES — Marqise Lee caught a 75-yard touchdown pass on the first play from scrimmage and returned a kickoff 100 yards for a score, and Southern California rolled to a victory over Hawaii. Matt Barkley kicked off his Heisman Trophy campaign with 377 yards passing and four touchdowns, and Lee caught 10 passes for 197 yards for the Trojans (1-0), whose offensive stars were every bit as impressive as expected in their first game since their two-year NCAA bowl ban ended. Silas Redd rushed for 57 yards and a touchdown on a team-leading nine carries in the Penn State transfer’s debut at USC, which led 35-0 at halftime.

No. 3 LSU 41, North Texas 14 BATON ROUGE, LA. — Kenny Hilliard rushed for 141 yards and two touchdowns, and LSU opened its season with a victory over North Texas. While the heavily favored Tigers were never threatened, their performance did not always thrill a Death Valley crowd that eagerly anticipated the debut of Zach Mettenberger as starting quarterback. Mettenberger, who was briefly sidelined by a vicious sack, was 19-of-26 for 192 yards, an interception and a touchdown. No. 6 Georgia 45, Buffalo 23 ATHENS, GA. — Freshman tailback Todd Gurley ran for three touchdowns, Aaron Murray threw three scoring passes, and Georgia overcame a sloppy first half to beat Buffalo. Gurley didn’t start but may have emerged as the Bulldogs’ future at tailback with his eight carries for 100 yards, including

scoring runs of 10 and 55 yards. He added a 100yard kickoff return for a touchdown in the first quarter. Georgia, favored by 37 1⁄2 points, led only 24-16 at halftime before pulling away in the season opener for both teams. Another freshman tailback, Keith Marshall, had 10 carries for 46 yards and starter Ken Malcome had six carries for 32 yards before hurting his left hand in the third quarter. Branden Oliver, coming off his school-record 1,395 yards rushing in 2011, had 30 carries for 111 yards and a 2-yard touchdown run for the Bulls.

No. 7 Florida State 69, Murray State 3 TALLAHASSEE, FLA. — Lonnie Pryor, James Wilder Jr., and Debrale Smiley combined for seven rushing touchdowns to lead Florida State to a win over Murray State. Pryor ran for three TDs, and Smiley and Wilder added two apiece. Wilder

finished with 106 yards rushing. Florida State (1-0) scored on their first touch of the new season on Rashad Greene’s 47-yard punt return just 89 seconds into the game. EJ Manuel passed for 188 yards and a touchdown before retiring midway in the third quarter.

yards and a touchdown, and Wisconsin needed a big defensive play to survive a fourth-quarter scare from Northern Iowa in a victory. Wisconsin’s defense didn’t allow Northern Iowa on its side of the 50-yard line until the 4:27 mark in the third quarter — but then the Badgers nearly melted down. Leading 26-7 in the fourth quarter, Wisconsin allowed Northern Iowa quarterback Sawyer Kollmorgen to throw a pair of long touchdowns to David Johnson, cutting the lead to five. With the Panthers facing fourth-and-1 at the Wisconsin 41-yard line, defensive lineman Ethan Hemer tipped the ball at the line of scrimmage to stop the drive.

No. 10 Arkansas 49, Jacksonville State 24 FAYETTEVILLE, ARK. — Tyler Wilson set the school record for yards passing in a season opener, finishing 19-of-27 passing for 367 yards and three touchdowns to lead Arkansas to a win over Jacksonville State. Two of Wilson’s touchdowns went to tight end Chris Gragg, who finished with seven catches for 110 yards as the Razor- No. 14 Clemson 26, backs (1-0) won their first Auburn 19 ATLANTA — Andre Elgame under coach John L. lington rushed for 231 Smith. yards, DeAndre Hopkins No. 12 Wisconsin 26, set a school record with 13 Northern Iowa 21 receptions and Clemson MADISON, WIS. — Mon- opened the season with tee Ball rushed for 120 victory over Auburn.

No. 17 Nebraska 49, Southern Mississippi 20 LINCOLN, NEB. — Taylor Martinez threw for a career-high 354 yards and matched his high with five touchdown passes to lead Nebraska to a victory over Southern Mississippi. The Huskers won their nation-leading 27th straight opener. Nebraska played the last three quarters without Rex Burkhead. The 1,300-yard rusher last season went out with a sprained ligament in his left knee after opening the scoring with a career-long 57-yard run. No. 18 Ohio St. 56, Miami (Ohio) 10 COLUMBUS, OHIO — Braxton Miller rushed for 161 yards, a record for an Ohio State quarterback, and threw for two scores including Devin Smith’s highlight-reel, one-handed catch as the Buckeyes ushered in the Urban Meyer era with a win over Miami (Ohio). Meyer, who won two national titles at Florida, moved to 11-0 in seasonopeners. No. 23 Florida 27, Bowling Green 14 GAINESVILLE, FLA. — Mike Gillislee had a career-high 148 yards rushing and two touchdowns, helping Florida beat Bowling Green. The performance was far from perfect for the Gators, who struggled part of the game on offense and failed to generate much pressure on defense. Still, it was enough for Florida to win its 23rd consecutive opener. The streak is the second longest in the nation behind Nebraska (27).

Cowboys outclass FCS foe, 84-0 Texas Tech 44, Northwestern St. 6 LUBBOCK, TEXAS — Eric Stephens ran for two touchdowns to lead Texas Tech over Northwestern State. Stephens, back after a season-ending knee injury last year, finished with 58 yards on 16 carries. Quarterback Seth Doege led Texas Tech on scoring drives on five of eight possessions.

No. 19 Oklahoma St. 84, Savannah St. 0 STILLWATER, OKLA. — Freshman Wes Lunt completed all 11 of his passes in a brief first outing as the new starting quarterback for Oklahoma State and the Cowboys beat outmatched Savannah State on Saturday night. The defending Big 12 champions drove for touchdowns on their first five possessions to take a 35-0 lead late in the first quarter, and then used the rest of the game as a scrimmage to get playing time for their reserves. Joseph Randle ran for 107 yards and two TDs on just six carries and Desmond Roland added 104 yards rushing, and Jeremy Smith ran for three scores as the Cowboys opened with an all-too-easy victory after losing stars Justin Blackmon and Brandon Weeden in the first round of the NFL draft. The lopsided result was hardly a surprise. Savannah State (0-1), one of the worst teams from a lower division, had won only four games against Football Championship Subdivision competition in 10 years and was playing a team from the FBS for the first time. Oklahoma State finished last season ranked No. 3 after winning its first Big 12 title and then taking down Andrew Luck and Stanford in the Fiesta Bowl. The Tigers, who got a $385,000 payday for their troubles, scheduled another colossal test at No. 7 Florida State next Saturday. After the opening quarter, the Cowboys took it relatively easy by using a slew of reserves from far down the depth chart. By

OKLAHOMA STATE RUNNING BACK DESMOND ROLAND (26) SCORES a touchdown in front of Savannah State linebacker Micah Blount (37) and defensive back Wayne Johnson (14) in the second quarter on Saturday in Stillwater, Okla. The Cowboys won, 84-0. the end of the third quarter, 94 different Oklahoma State players had taken the field and the points still were piling up. Oklahoma State broke the school record with nine rushing touchdowns — two more than in a 54-0 victory against UTEP in 1977 but still three shy of the NCAA record. Corey Bennett provided the final score on a 10-yard TD run with 1:20 remaining. It was the most lopsided victory for OSU since a 117-0 rout of Southwestern Oklahoma in 1916 and Savannah State’s worst loss since a 98-0 defeat against Bethune Cookman in 1953, a season when the Tigers were outscored 444-6. While saying he didn’t want to insult Savannah State, even billionaire Oklahoma State booster Boone Pickens expressed disappointment that his school had scheduled the game and encouraged a stronger nonconference slate before the game.

No. 11 West Virginia 69, Marshall 34 MORGANTOWN, W.VA. — Geno Smith threw for 323 yards and four touchdowns to lead West Virginia to a win over Marshall. In the final scheduled game between the state’s only Bowl Subdivision teams, it marked West Virginia’s highest-scoring season opener in school history. Smith kept the momentum going from his six-TD performance from the Orange Bowl. The senior completed 32 of 36 passes and set a school record for career completions before sitting out most of the fourth quarter. The Mountaineers compiled 655 total yards, more than any game last year, and got the balance they’ve sought from their running game. Shawne Alston ran for 123 yards and two scores. The Mountaineers compiled 331 yards on the ground.

Iowa State 38, Tulsa 23 AMES, IOWA — Steele Jantz threw for 281 yards and two touchdowns and ran for another score as Iowa State beat Tulsa to win its ninth opener in 10 years. Shontrelle Johnson added a career-high 120 yards rushing for the Cyclones, who scored 24 straight points and held off a rally by the Golden Hurricane. Jantz threw and ran for second-quarter touchdowns to help ISU move ahead 24-16 at halftime. Cody Green’s 3-yard touchdown pass to Keyarris Garrett brought Tulsa within 31-23 in the fourth quarter. But the Golden Hurricane’s final drive fizzled when Deon Broomfield intercepted Green with 2:04 left. Johnson’s 5-yard TD run on the next play sealed the win for Iowa State. Green had 198 yards passing and two touchdowns in his first career start for Tulsa.

No. 22 Kansas State 51, Missouri State 9 MANHATTAN — Collin Klein threw for 169 yards and two touchdowns, John Hubert ran 95 yards for a fourth-quarter score and Kansas State pulled away late to beat Missouri State 51-9 Saturday night.

The game was tied 9-9 early in the third quarter before Kansas State piled up 42 straight points against the team picked to finish last in the Missouri Valley Conference. No. 15 Texas 37, Wyoming 17 AUSTIN, TEXAS — Joe Bergeron and Malcolm Brown both rushed for more than 100 yards and combined for three touchdowns, leading Texas over Wyoming. Texas quarterback David Ash, who won the starting job over Case McCoy in training camp, was an efficient 20-of-27 passing for 156 yards and a touchdown to Jaxon Shipley.

Royals tumble twice to Twins KANSAS CITY, MO. (AP) — Joe Mauer hit a grand slam, Chris Parmelee added a three-run shot, and the Minnesota Twins outlasted the Kansas City Royals, 8-7, to complete a sweep of a doubleheader Saturday. Justin Morneau drove in two runs, and Minnesota rookie Cole De Vries beat the Royals, 3-1, in the first game. Mauer’s grand slam in the second inning of the nightcap was the third of his career and the first by the Twins this year. Mauer’s ninth home run came after Pedro Florimon’s double was sandwiched around walks to Drew Butera and Ben Revere. Parmelee homered in the first with Alexi Casilla and Josh Willingham aboard. Luke Hochevar (7-13) lasted just 12⁄3 innings, the shortest outing of his career. Hochevar faced 14 batters, 10 reached (six hits and four walks) and eight scored before he was replaced by Everett Teaford, who threw 51⁄3 scoreless innings. The Twins led 8-2 after two innings, but Twins right-hander Liam Hendriks, who is 0-9 in 15 career starts, was unable to pick up the victory. Hendriks was pulled after 32⁄3 innings, allowing two unearned runs in the fourth after a fielding error by third baseman Trevor Plouffe. After Plouffe’s miscue that could have ended the inning, Hendriks allowed RBI singles to Alex Gordon and Billy Butler, trimming the lead to 8-5. Anthony Swarzak replaced Hendricks, who allowed five runs, three earned, and 10 hits. Swarzak (3-4) was credited with the victory, allowing two runs and one hit in 22⁄3 innings.

MINNESOTA’S DARIN MASTROIANNI SLIDES SAFELY INTO THIRD BASE ahead of the tag by Kansas City’s Mike Moustakas, left, during the first game of a doubleheader Saturday at Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City, Mo. Eric Hosmer’s two-run, two-out single off Casey Fien, the fourth Minnesota pitcher, made it 8-7 in the seventh inning. Salvador Perez went 4 for 5, matching his career high in hits, and drove in a Kansas City run with a first-inning single. Glen Perkins saved both games and is 10 for 13 for the season. De Vries (4-5) has four career victories and three of them are against the Royals. “Oh, I can’t say that I know that,” De Vries said of being 3-0 in as many starts against the Royals. “That makes me happy. That’s pretty good.” So he owns them? “I guess,” he said and

laughed. “Something is working. I feel like half of my starts have been against the Royals or the White Sox. I feel I know both those teams decently well. I feel comfortable pitching against both of them just because I’ve pitched against them so much.” He limited the Royals to one run and seven hits, walked none and struck out three in 62⁄3 innings. “My two-seamer for whatever reason it just had a lot of movement, had pretty good control with it and I was getting a lot of awkward swings,” De Vries said. “That and my curveball were definitely my two best today.” De Vries has won back-

Chiefs hoping injured players are able to make early returns KANSAS CITY, MO. (AP) — The banged-up Kansas City Chiefs are in waitand-see mode with several injured players heading into their season opener against the Atlanta Falcons next Sunday. Chiefs coach Romeo Crennel said Saturday that cornerback Brandon Flowers, defensive tackle Anthony Toribio, linebacker Derrick Johnson, backup quarterback Brady Quinn and safety Kendrick Lewis all making progress, but their availability for Week 1 is uncertain. Johnson is the most likely to play after hurting his ankle in the Chiefs’ preseason finale Thursday night at Green Bay. The injury to the Pro Bowl linebacker was thought to be serious, but Crennel said that Johnson is a “good healer, so we expect he’ll be ready to go.” Toribio is out of a walking boot after hurting his ankle, but Crennel didn’t say whether he’d be able to play against the Falcons. The same was true of Flowers, the Chiefs’ top cornerback, who has been dealing with a stubborn heal injury that’s kept him out of practice since July 31. “Flowers has tried to do something the last couple of days and hopefully with this time off and this rest he’ll be feeling better and do more things,” Crennel said. Quinn has a neck strain that he sustained against the Packers, and while Crennel said that his No. 2 quarterback was feeling better, the coach had yet to see him do any activity. The biggest longshot to see the field next Sunday is Lewis, who hurt his right shoulder during a preseason game against St. Louis. Lewis had his arm in a sling in the days afterward, and only re-

KANSAS CITY CHIEFS COACH ROMEO CRENNEL looks at the action during a preseason game against Seattle on Aug. 24 in Kansas City, Mo. cently did he start doing range-of-motion work. “He’s progressing,” Crennel said, “but I don’t think he’s going to be ready.” Also on Saturday, the Chiefs signed eight players to their practice squad, including wide receiver Junior Hemingway and defensive lineman Jerome Long, their seventh-round draft picks. Both of them were waived the previous day, when Kansas City trimmed its roster. The Chiefs technically have 54 players under contract because Tamba Hali, suspended for the opener, does not count against the roster limit. The Pro Bowl linebacker will be eligible Week 2 after violating the league’s substance-abuse policy. The other players signed to the practice squad were wide receivers Jamar Newsome and Josh Bellamy, offensive

linemen Lucas Patterson and David Mims, fullback Patrick DiMarco and defensive back Neiko Thorpe. Crennel did not rule out the Chiefs making additional roster moves this week. They’ve reportedly worked out former defensive tackle Shaun Smith, who was recently cut by the Tennessee Titans, and could take a look at a few more players who were cut loose over the weekend. Kansas City kept five running backs while going light at several other positions. “We got the roster down to the required number, and it’s always tough to move on from guys, particularly this last cut, but you have to do what you have to do, and then you have to move forward,” Crennel said. “We’re excited about the guys we have on the team.”

How Lawrence residents spent their summers abroad ———————

Kansans, Kenyans learn from each other BRIAN SEGEBRECHT, leader of the Microfinance Kansas to Kenya team, watches a group of Masai women making beaded jewelry for sale in local markets.

Editor’s note: We asked four Lawrence residents to share with us their experiences traveling abroad this summer. More stories appear on page 6C. By Bob Basow

Three Kansas teams journeyed to Kenya in June, their luggage packed with medical supplies, irrigation tubing, soccer shirts and whatever the weight limit would allow. Whether they served on the Medical, Community or Steering teams, these Kansas to Kenya volunteers returned feeling that “K2K” meant “Kenya to Kansas.” “What we brought back was much more than we took over,” as one volunteer says. Lawrence physician Steve Segebrecht founded

K2K originally as a medical mission and has expanded it to include a community development team. “We value and support ‘community transforming community,’” Segebrecht says. A deacon at Trinity Episcopal Church, Segebrecht explains that “K2K works with the Diocese of Kansas and other organiza-

tions to achieve the United Nations’ Millennium Development Goals in Kenya.” These goals include: eliminating poverty and hunger; universal education; gender equality; child health; maternal health; disease prevention; sustainable agricultural/ environmental development; and global partnership to achieve these goals.

Brian Segebrecht, of Lawrence, led the Microfinance group, which helped establish a program to raise women’s economic status. “Microfinance involves helping small groups become credit-worthy so they can grow their businesses,” Brian Segebrecht says. “We first visited successful groups in the Thika community. We returned to Maai Mahiu and observed a Masai women’s group making beaded jewelry. Finally, we visited an IDP (internally displaced persons) camp and watched small groups weaving baskets and baking bread for sale.” Kathy Miller, of Lawrence, led the Literacy group, which helped introduce e-book readers to teachers and students at Please see KENYA, page 6C

KU choir students a hit in Germany By Sara Shepherd

For an American college student, performing operas in Germany comes with certain challenges. Namely, asking fellow chorus members — the native ones — to translate. If not the words, then at least the stage directions. “Having to laugh at German jokes that we didn’t understand was the funny part,” says Madison Mikenna, a Kansas University graduate student in opera from Birmingham, Mich. “It was an adventure.” Mikenna was one of 33 KU vocal and instrumental music students who spent June 15 to August 20 in Eutin, Germany,

which is one of Lawrence’s sister cities, rehearsing and performing alongside international professionals at the Eutin Festival. This was the second summer KU students, chosen by audition, participated. “We’re hoping that this becomes annual,” says Robert Walzel, dean of the School of Music, who accompanied students to Eutin. “Certainly, if we make it three years in a row, then we’ve set that pattern.” Students rehearsed and performed alongside professional and community musicians, mostly Germans, in two orchestral concerts, two chamber concerts and three operas — “Nabucco,” “Die Please see CHOIR, page 2C

New best-seller: ‘Fifty Shades of Radar’


wasn’t going to go there. Really, I wasn’t. But this “Fifty Shades of Grey” business is out of control. It’s bad enough the “mommy porn” trilogy has sold over 40 million copies. (After reading several chapters of Book One, I stopped and stashed the disgusting thing away. I know it’s not the point but, honestly, who talks like that?) Now there’s a movie in the works and licensing deals with three apparel companies for “Fifty Shades of Grey” hosiery, garters, sleepwear and more. God only knows what spin-offs will follow. Far be it from me to begrudge someone’s success — especially a fellow writer — but, darn it, where’s mine? Why can’t I publish a blockbuster best-seller that spawns sequels, films and leather lingerie? I’ve had my eye on a little A-frame in the Swiss Alps. Those royalties would come in handy. Rather than be shackled by envy, (dare I say, tied up in knots?) I’ve decided to take action. I will go E.L. James one better: I’m going to tell my own juicy story of submission, passion and slavish addiction. And, this time, it won’t be fiction, for I have my own Christian Grey. And what makes the story even hotter — he’s not my husband! Oh, yes! I have been under the control of my own master for more years than I can remember. His name is NEXRAD. But I

call him Mr. Nex. It started innocently, as affairs tend to do. Years ago, I’d see him only occasionally. He’d come into my living room in the evening, tempting me with the sensual motion of his live-action radar. “Holy cow! Holy moly! Wow!” I’d cry, breathlessly. I’ve always been a sucker for a good, slowmoving front. My meetings with him were fleeting (and always chaperoned by a meteorologist) but, on occasion, when conditions warranted, Mr. Nex was all over the airwaves for hours at a time, pulsing his green, yellow and red patterns like Rastafarians at a Bob Marley concert. Later, thanks to a cable hookup, I was seeing him daily “on the 8’s.” Oh, wow! It’s true. My complete surrender started with the Weather Channel.

Blume von Hawaii” (“The Flower of Hawaii”) and “L’Elisir D’Amore” (“The Elixir of Love”). “They were busy making music all the way through,” Walzel says. Patrick Timmis, a Fort Wayne, Ind., percussionist in KU’s graduate program, says his only previous experience performing with professionals had been gigs “here and there.” He says the festival — where he participated in all seven shows plus an additional percussion show — was a valuable opportunity. “This is the first time that it wasn’t a gig,” he says. “We were all a part of the same ensemble and being able to play along with them for the duration of the summer.” Mikenna had roles in “Nabucco,” as a chorus member, and “Die Blume von Hawaii,” as an American tourist. For her, like Timmis, the program provided her first trip to Europe and an internship-like atmosphere to build her performance experience. “It looks really good on résumés for us to have experience with summer programs and festivals,” Mikenna says. The festival paid for the students’ plane tickets, lodging in hostels and most meals, Walzel says. The performances, and the American students in them, proved popular

He says the Germans seemed eager to support young people. “Introducing them to their country and aspects of culture they haven’t seen is something they’re very proud of, and something they enjoy,” Walzel says. Timmis says some of the professional musicians even invited students into their homes, cooked for them and showed them sights in the Eutin area. He says he also appreciated the Europeans’ love for music, which seemed to contrast the United States, where pop music tends to reign and orchestras are dying out. “Over there, just seeing the amount of support and the amount of interest in what we were doing was

really eye opening, and it was encouraging to see people who are still interested and still excited about what we do,” Timmis says. Six performances of “Nabucco” were originally scheduled, but organizers added a seventh because the show kept selling out. A photograph of a costumed Mikenna alongside another KU student rehearsing “Die Blume von Hawaii” was even blown up and used in advertisements for performances. “They plastered our faces all over the town on these giant posters,” Mikenna says. “There was a couple times when I got recognized out on the town.” — Features reporter Sara Shepherd can be reached at 832-7187.

Court: Monroe’s estate can’t block photo sales SAN FRANCISCO — A federal appeals court ruled Thursday that Marilyn Monroe’s estate is powerless to stop a California company from selling her images without its permission. The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco ruled that The Milton Greene Archives can continue to sell iconic images of the actress without paying her estate for publicity rights. The ruling hinged on Monroe’s legal residency. She owned a home in California and an apartment in New York when she died in Los Angeles in 1962. Her estate at the time claimed Monroe was a New

York resident to avoid paying California inheritance taxes. The court ruled that her estate can’t now claim Monroe was a California resident to take advantage of a state law granting posthumous rights of publicity to the famous. With the estate’s active backing, the state Legislature passed the law in 2007. New York has no such law. “Monroe’s representatives took one position on Monroe’s domicile at death for forty years, and then changed their position when it was to their great financial advantage,” Judge Kim Wardlaw wrote for the unanimous three-judge panel. The court, citing Forbes

“Top-Earning Dead Celebrities” list, said Monroe generated $27 million in revenue, putting her third on the list. The ruling allows the Milton Green Archives to sell images taken by its photographers without having to pay the estate royalties.

Pageant winner connects with Slovakian roots By Jennifer Salva

Spending time with family always makes one feel at home. Experiencing that same warm feeling with family you have never met before, family who does not speak your language, family in a foreign country — that is a moment to reflect on. In summer of 2011, I had the honor of representing myself and my family as a second-generation descendent from what is now Slovakia in the Miss Czech-Slovak Kansas Pageant. After being chosen as the Kansas Czech-Slovak queen in 2011, I began preparing for competition in the 2012 Miss CzechSlovak US Pageant this summer. The Kansas pageant director was eager to send me off to the Czech Republic or Slovakia as part of my preparation for national competition, and found the perfect event for my itinerary. The 26th World Congress of the The Czechoslovak Society of Arts and Sciences held its 26th World Congress in Zilina, Slovakia, the first week in July, where I was invited to create a presentation on the Czech and Slovak influence in the American Midwest. In addition to giving my presentation, I had the unique opportunity to meet doctors, professors and unique individuals from over 40 countries. The most meaningful individual I met was a well-known Slovak filmmaker named Ivo Brachtl. As a student of journalism and film, I jumped at the opportunity to introduce myself to the notable documentary maker, and hopefully earn a handshake. Instead, Ivo decided he would give me the opportunity of a lifetime. As I dropped to one knee to take a photo of a group of professors at the conference, Ivo whispered “get little lower, close iris more.” His desire to teach was invigorating. Ivo invited me to travel to the mountains, an hour outside of Zilina, to film a talking head for a documentary he was making. I thought I would remember filming in the moun-

Next, I traveled to Hrustin, Slovakia, the birthplace of my grandmother, to meet my cousins for the very first time. The Slovak people have a unique way of making you feel right at home. It could be the food, it could be the warm hello kisses, or it could be the shots of slivovitz. I was able to communicate with only two of my younger cousins in English. But that didn’t matter — we were family. And as long as we yelled loudly enough, we would understand each other eventually. We gathered each evening in a different household in the small village of Hrustin to eat, drink and sing. The infectious love and generous spirit of my Slovak family members were demonstrated through the hard work to prepare delicious meals each night. Beautiful, yet humble, Slovak homes, filled with family and laughter, were the perfect place to spend my summer before returning to the United States to compete in the Miss Czech-Slovak US Pageant. Undoubtedly, my time in Slovakia contributed to the honor of being chosen as the US Czech-Slovak queen this August. I am proud to represent the Czech and Slovak heritages throughout the nation this year, as well as return to my family in Slovakia next summer.

Rarely is a vacation a “must-do” excursion, but my family’s trip to India definitely falls into that category. After all, we talked about it for 11 years, ever since my husband and I adopted our two daughters from India. They joined their 2-yearold brother, Charlie, in 2001 when Amla was 7 and Mary was 1. We chose the summer of 2012 to go. Amla would graduate from high school, and the younger two would be 12 and 13, perfect ages for such an adventure — old enough to remember it, and young enough for it to affect their understanding of the world. We hung onto our dream despite my husband’s death in 2002, and although some were skeptical about my ability to pull off such a trip, I didn’t think too much about it... UNTIL we were on the plane: Lost luggage, roaming charges, gastrointestinal distress, monkeys stealing my sunglasses — isn’t it always the things you don’t worry about? As we left the Delhi airport, Charlie said it was so hot that his “eyes hurt.” It was hot. And colorful. And buzzing with life. And what better introduction to the culture than a rickshaw through Old Delhi’s spice market? You would expect exotic aromas, and there were plenty of those, but there were also smells typical of an area teeming with people and animals. It was senso-

Touring Turkey and sharing faith Editor’s note: The Rev. Shannah McAleer, of Unity Church of Lawrence, traveled to Turkey this June as part of a 10-member delegation from Kansas. The trip was with the Institute of Interfaith Dialogue, an international organization based in Istanbul with chapters around the world, including one at Kansas University. By Shannah McAleer

We traveled throughout Turkey, meeting the heads of various aspects of the culture, such as members of the Turkish Parliament, large businesses, universities, private schools, print and television media, hospitals, social services and members of the faith community. We shared meals with and stayed with Turkish families that helped us to be part of the beauty of their daily lives. I learned a great deal from my host families in Samsun where Ishmael and his extended family share a seaside compound that was gorgeous. In Manisa I stayed with a young, modern couple who own a large insurance company. Their son Mihten was just like any fun little boy of 6. I loved watching the loving interactions between parents and children and how active the fathers are in their care.

The school is funded and operated by members of the Güllen movement, which strives for open dialog among the various cultures and faiths in the world. We traveled to the major metropolitan city of Istanbul on the shining Bosporus Sea. Istanbul is the only city in the world that straddles both Europe and Asia. It is filled with excitement and a blend of the modern and ancient worlds. We went to Topkapi Palace, Hagia Sophia Mosque, the ancient Spice Bazaar, and many more incredible experiences. Then we were off on a flight to Ankara, the capital of Turkey. This is the hub of government. We were welcomed and honored by some of the members of Parliament who took us to an outdoor restaurant in the midst of beautiful gar-

dens to eat. We made our way through the seaside communities of Samsung and Trabzon, and even high into the mountain ranges to visit Long Lake and an ancient Christian monastery carved into a solid granite mountain. To say Turkey is a beautiful country is a huge understatement. Their rich culture is beyond compare. We were hosted by business people who support the work of spiritual and social leader Fethullah Güllen. The Güllen movement began in Turkey and is now well-represented throughout the world as a center of intercultural and interfaith dialogue and understanding.

Cole also advised on sanitation. “Implementing basic sanitation can greatly improve community health by reducing the common causes of illness,” he says.

Individual chapters are often linked with universities in the United States, such as in Houston and our local chapter at Kansas University. The chapters offer opportunities to share Turkish culture, language and faith-related events. I loved the trip, and one of my favorite aspects was the opportunity to meet with and stay with host families in different cities. One of the greatest aspects of the Turkish culture and people is their amazing demonstration of hospitality. I always felt welcomed as if I were immediately part of their families. I feel I have made life-long friends. I am happy that we have a KU chapter of the IID so that I can participate in local events. Turkey is an absolutely beautiful country with miles of seashore and huge mountain ranges. I had lived in Turkey for two years when I was younger, and it is even more beautiful today than before. I highly recommend looking for IID events and attending them to increase our understanding of the Abrahamic faiths: Christianity, Judaism and Islam. I believe it was Gandhi who once said, “There will not be peace on earth until there is faith among the world religions”! The IID strives to help create that peace!

Do you have advice for couples who don’t share the same religion? Support each other’s beliefs Dennis Karpowitz, member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latterday Saints and emeritus professor of psychology at Kansas University: Prior to marriage, couples should carefully discuss the impact it will have on their relationship, the rearing of their children, and their friendships and activities when they do not share the same religion. This may be a critical factor in whether to continue the relationship or part. Both individuals should also seek answers regarding the continuation of the relationship through meditation and prayer. This is a time for clear thinking and not a time to be swept away by emotion. For couples who are already married, they have made sacred promises to love, honor and cherish each other. Agency, the right to choose, is a Godgiven gift to every individual. Faith is a matter of personal conscience and should be highly respected. In Matthew 22:37-39 we read, “Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy

mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.” Who would be a closer neighbor than our spouse? Emphasize the beliefs you have in common and support each other in those righteous endeavors. Several years ago, I attended a conference on the family with representatives from Christian, Jewish, Islamic, Bahá’í, Sikh, Hindu and Buddhist faiths. I was greatly impressed with the commonality of views expressed regarding the importance of family and care in the raising of children. Children should be exposed to the teachings of both religions. As the children mature, they will choose for themselves their own faith perspective. “Successful marriages and families are established and maintained on principles of faith, prayer, repentance, forgiveness, respect, love, compassion, work and wholesome recreational activities.” — The Family, A Proclamation to the World. — Send email to Dennis Karpowitz at

Couples should have unified beliefs Rick Burwick, lead pastor, 360 Church, 3200 Clinton Parkway: The definition of “religion” in its essential idea is “a life in God” (from A.H. Strong’s “Systematic Theology”). In its strictness, there is but one religion “aware of eternity” planted by God in their hearts (Ecclesiastes 3:11b). People who are actually religious choose a life of blessing (Deuteronomy 11:26), which God promises to those who have a personal relationship with God by believing in His son, Jesus Christ. False religions are the caricatures of humanity who choose to live under the curse of death by refusing God’s gift of life and blessing (Romans 6:23). When couples come together from different religious mindsets, yet both without personal decisions to choose a life and blessing through Jesus Christ, my advice to them would be to accept Jesus’ invitation to live life to the fullest through accepting the Gospel that ensures a full life now and in the hereafter. God is not so concerned about

their past as He is about their present journey and future destiny. If couples asking for advice Burwick come divided, one having religion choosing Jesus and the other not choosing Christ, I would want them to understand their individual outcomes. I would advise them to consider their future by focusing on their present choices by unpacking universal and biblical truth that where there is no unity or oneness in faith, there is no power or success in marriage, career or eternity. Luke 11:17-18 states that every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation, and a house divided against a house falls. The best of plans ultimately destroy themselves if not unified psychologically and spiritually with Jesus Christ and His plan for you.

Memoir chronicles author’s battle between religion, sexual preferences By Gary Henry

Lawrence writer Kelly Barth details a struggle between fundamentalist Christianity and the alternative sexuality it abhors in her memoir, “My Almost Certainly Real Imaginary Jesus.” She knows the battle well. It took place within her, as well as in church and relationships. Barth, growing up in Raytown, Barth Mo., in the 1970s and ’80s, craved the energy and certainty of fundamentalist Christianity. From her first glimmers of sexuality as a child, Barth also knew she was attracted to females. Barth writes about the conflict with humor. “I look back with affection and a sense of irony,” she says. “I see a sweet but bungling comedy of errors. At my healthiest, I’ve always seen the world that way.”

One of Barth’s earliest memories, she writes, is her family telling her that “Jesus is everywhere.” She recalls as a 3- or 4-year-old, searching the house for Jesus, imagining she might find him “like a lost dime, cloaked and sandaled, tiny as a foilcovered chocolate Easter egg forgotten in a lampshade ruffle. “I thought that if I were very still and actually did see my tiny Imaginary Jesus, he might crawl onto my hand and let me pet him.” As Barth grew up, this imaginary but in some ways real-to-her figure helped her navigate the conflicting influences. The desire to write also pulled on her. “As a girl, I watched “The Waltons.” John Boy, the writer, fascinated me,” says Barth, who earned her bachelor’s degree in creative writing and journalism from the University of Missouri-Kansas City. She recalls her first attempt at an autobiography at 10 years old, clacking away on her dad’s old Underwood typewriter.

BOOK LAUNCH “My Almost Certainly Real Imaginary Jesus” will be available from publisher Arktoi Books,, Barnes & Noble and the Raven Book Store, 6 E. Seventh St. in Lawrence. The Raven will host a launch party, open to the public, at 7 p.m. Friday. “I wrote two lines, then decided it might be better to wait,” Barth says laughing. From high school creative writing classes to becoming a fiction fellow in the creative writing program at the University of Montana, Missoula, Barth says writing has always given her the most pleasure. “I knew from an early age it was what I would like to do,” she says. Since then, Barth has honed her craft with stories in literary journals and anthologies, and has been awarded fellowships from the Missouri Arts Council and Kansas Arts Commission. She writes freelance,

including for Go! in Monday editions of the Lawrence Journal-World. She’s worked as a technical writer and editor for engineering firms, and as a graduate teaching assistant at KU and the University of Missouri, among other writing and teaching jobs. Barth settled in Lawrence in late 1992, after completing the writing program in Missoula. Meantime, she says, the story of her struggle and the real-but-imaginary Jesus who helped her through it longed to get out. Barth worked on the memoir on and off for 10 years. Her first draft counted a ponderous 600 pages. The finished product, which was released Saturday, is a slim paperback of 248 pages. Advance notices from other authors have called “My Almost Certainly Real Imaginary Jesus” funny, beautiful, poignant and heartbreaking. Barth says she faced many fears and demons in the effort to get it written. “It’s told straight from my own perspective,” she says. “Let the chips fall where they may.”

2 choices for off-camera flashes Behind the Lens I

f you use a digital, single-lens reflex camera and you want to get your flash off your camera, you have two choices: wired or wireless. Here are two scenarios and the equipment required:

One flash unit off camera To trigger a single flash off the camera, the cheapest route is to go wired. You need only your camera, a flash and one PC synch cord. With the release of the shutter, this cord creates an electrical contact between the camera and the flash unit. Most DSLR cameras and stand-alone flashes have PC terminals, although some cameras and flashes vary in their connector style, so make sure you purchase the appropriate cord. You can purchase these cords in various lengths and in coiled or straight styles. The advantage to

the wired option is that there is no way another photographer will inadvertently fire your flash. A good resource for all types of PC cords and connectors is and More expensive, but a lot more convenient, is the wireless option. A one-flash setup requires two battery-operated devices: one to act as a transmitter at your camera location, and one to act as a receiver at your flash position.

The transmitter fits into the hot-shoe of your camera, and the receiver connects to your flash. They work by radio frequency similar to a garage door opener, and some advertise a range of up to 1,600 feet under good conditions. Most photojournalists favor the PocketWizard system where a unit pair will cost about $350. Paul C. Buff Inc. has the less expensive CyberSync products that start at $130 for both a transmitter and a receiver. I use these, and they work fine. Working with wireless means you can move anywhere within range of the receiver to fire the flash.

Multiple flash units off camera Once you have established a wired or wireless connection to one flash, you can add multiple flash units in a couple of ways. For wired, you can continue connecting a synch cord

from flash to flash. For wireless, each new flash requires a new receiver. Another alternative is to add flash units with built-in flash-sensitive remotes. A flash with a built-in remote sensor will fire when it detects the light of another flash. In this scenario, your camera-mounted transmitter fires your first flash, which in turn triggers the other flashes with their built-in sensors. The disadvantage in this setup is that anyone else using a flash will fire your units with the builtin flash sensors. If you already have extra flashes but without built-in remotes, you can get fairly inexpensive add-on remote sensors to attach to the flash. A good source for exploring this option is at PBDKnO. — Chief photographer Mike Yoder can be reached at 832-7141.

Conks on trees a sign of internal decay


ushrooms, conks and other plate- or shelflike structures are rarely good signs when seen growing on live trees or popping up from tree roots. The fungi that produce these types of fruiting structures feed on tissue inside of the tree, weakening it and increasing the potential for tree failure. This summer has brought me many pictures and samples of one internal decay fungi in particular: Ganoderma. I think the increase in samples is only indicative of a growing awareness by tree owners rather than an increase in actual occurrence of the disease.

Garden Calendar

Jennifer Smith

Ganoderma exists in the soil and enters tree roots through wounds in the root tissue. Wounds are most likely to occur with digging or construction in the root zone — installation of sidewalks, patios, driveways and retaining walls can cause substantial damage to tree roots. Lawn mowers and weed trimmers that contact exposed tree roots or the base of the tree also create wounds that allow Ganoderma and other similar fungi to move into a tree. The fruiting structures that indicate the presence of Ganoderma are typically brown to reddish brown with creamy margins. They look more like a dried pile of goop, than a standard mushroom and sometimes even look like they have been varnished. Sometimes they are yellowish or purplish. They appear at the base of the tree near the soil line or on exposed roots but never in the high branches of a tree. One species of Ganoderma produces a shelf-fungi known as the artists’ conk because the underside can be drawn upon. If you observe what look like Ganoderma fruiting structures on a tree in your

INTERNAL TREE DECAY sometimes presents as Ganoderma, a type of fungus that enters a tree through wounded root tissue. yard, there are a few things to consider. Most important is the presence of a target — meaning something that could be damaged if the tree fell on it. Tree size, species, age and extent of decay are also important. For example, a redbud will typically cause less damage than an 80-year-old oak. There are too many factors

that play a role in tree health for anyone to accurately predict how long a tree will stay standing. A certified arborist may be able to provide a recommendation to leave or remove the tree after careful evaluation of the tree and site. To prevent Ganoderma infection, avoid wounding tree roots and follow good maintenance practices.

Trees should be watered deeply and infrequently over extended dry periods, fertilized only when a soil test indicates a nutrient deficiency and pruned occasionally to maintain health, vigor and structure. Mulch applied over the root zone of a tree minimizes fluctuations in soil moisture and temperature, thus reducing

stress for the tree. Use caution with mulch, however, because too much can hold moisture against the base of the tree and interfere with air and water exchange. For best results, apply mulch at a maximum depth of 3 inches to 4 inches and keep it pulled away from the trunk of the tree. Make mulch doughnuts rather than volcanoes. Fungicides are ineffective on Ganoderma because the fungus grows in the interior tissues of the trees it infects. Trees infected with Ganoderma may exhibit smaller than normal and/or yellowed leaves, numerous dead branches and a slowed growth rate. It may feed on a tree for several years, hollowing it out a little at a time, before tree failure occurs. There are many species of Ganoderma fungi, with different tastes for the species of trees they prefer. Honeylocust, oak, ash, maple and elm are common hosts in our area. The disease is more prevalent in the stressful environment of an urban yard than in the forest. Some species of Ganoderma are considered medicinal in some parts of Asia and are cultivated. Ganoderma fungi are also being researched for therapeutic and medicinal benefits. Several other fungi produce mushrooms and conks on trees, and all are indicative of internal decay. A few — shiitake mushrooms, oyster mushrooms, and a fungus called hen-of-the-woods — are delicious to eat. Others are just pretty to look at. Regardless of the type of fungi, the potential for tree failure and presence of a target should be considered carefully by the tree owner and/or a tree care professional.

Many Americans unfamiliar with Chinese inkcakes inkcake was stored in a carved wooden box that was 4 7/8 inches high, 3 1/8 inches wide and 7/8 inch deep. Inkcakes, as well as inkstones, inkbrushes and paper, are highly regarded as symbols of culture.

By Terry Kovel

For the past few years, auctions of Chinese antiques have attracted many bidders and high bids. The auctions have included many items that were not recognized by American bidders. A recent auction sold a “Chinese polychrome-decorated inkcake” for more than $1,000. I had to do some research. An inkstick or inkcake is a piece of solid ink that might be a mixture of soot and animal glue made from egg whites, fish skin or animal hides. Its scent was enhanced with cloves or sandalwood or other natural products. Other types of inkcakes were made of burnt material, plant dyes or minerals. The mixture was kneaded and pressed into a carved mold to dry. The inkcake had to be ground on an inkstone with some water. The ink could be mixed to be thick or thin. An ink brush was dipped into the ink and then used to write or draw on paper. Early examples date

Q: IT TOOK A $1,195 BID to buy this colored inkcake at Neal Auction in New Orleans in April 2012. It dates from the 1700s and was probably never used to make ink. back to the 12th century B.C. New ones are in stores now. The auction’s inkcake dated from the mid 1700s. The colored raised decoration on one side pictured a landscape with a temple, table, sculpture and candle. The other side was decorated with a colored dragon in the sea, a mark and an inscription. The

I have an unusual chest that I would like to sell. It has many small drawers. On the inside of one it reads, “The Practical Glove Holder, Patented October 7, 1897, A.N. Russell & Sons, Canadian Patent August 7, 1897.” A.N. Russell & Sons was founded in Ilion, N.Y., in about 1883 by Albert N. Russell. The company made cabinets for gloves, ribbons and thread, as well as umbrella holders. The ribbon and glove cabinets were its most popular items. It later made bronzeand aluminum-framed museum cases until the business closed down in 1932. In 2007 an A.N. Russell & Sons ribbon cabinet in very good condition sold for $1,300 at auction.


Q: I have a cookie jar that looks just like the Shawnee Smiley pig cookie jars, but it’s not marked “Shawnee” or “Smiley.” The only mark on the bottom is “USA.” It has red flowers and a red kerchief. Is it real or a reproduction? A: Shawnee Pottery Co. of Zanesville, Ohio, began making these cookie jars in 1942. At first they were called “Smiling Pig.” There were many versions. The earliest ones were cold-painted or plain and had a triangular rim. Later jars had round openings and were handpainted or decorated with decals. Decorations included apples, clover, flowers, plums, shamrocks or strawberries and different-colored kerchiefs. Some were marked “Pat. Smiley USA” or “Shawnee Smiley 60,” but many are just marked “USA.” When the company went out of business in 1961, the molds were sold to Terrace Ceramics, which made the cookie jars in plain white without decorations. There are also many fake

Smiley Pig cookie jars on the market. Price of a genuine Smiley pig jar is determined by condition and decoration and ranges from $140 to $250. Q: I inherited my grandfather’s collection of more than 600 cigar bands. They are in an old scrapbook. Only a small corner of each band is glued onto the page. There are pages that have cigar bands picturing every president from George Washington to Teddy Roosevelt. Are they of any value? A: Collecting cigar bands was a popular hobby in the early 1900s. Cigar manufacturers used the bands to keep cigars from unrolling and to identify and advertise their brands. Some bands made in the early 1900s were printed with real gold gilt. Single bands as well as sets of bands like your U.S. presidents were made. Collectors used to look for sets that interested them or for particularly beautiful designs. As with most paper col-

lectibles, pasting or gluing them into an album or book lowers their value — unless they can be safely removed without damaging the paper. There are few cigar-band collectors today, but there are many collectors of cigar memorabilia. Look for dealers or auctions that sell cigarbox labels, cigar cutters and other tobacciana. Tip: Light can damage many types of antiques. Furniture finishes will fade; textiles and paper can fade or darken. Light will also weaken wood and fabric. — Terry Kovel answers as many questions as possible through the column.

Massage therapist needs to know about bug bites Dear Annie: My friend is a massage therapist. She had been offering me discounted professional massages in her home for months, and I finally took her up on it. The massage was fantastic. Later that night, however, I found many fleabites on my back, arms and legs. I am certain I got them from her house during our session. My friend has suggested that I continue coming to her house to work on my sore back, and frankly, I’d love to do it. But the thought of getting bitten by fleas again turns my stomach and will not make for a very relaxing experience. I don’t want to confront her with the flea business, because she’s the type who would be both offended and defensive. But if I never return for a massage, she will get the impres-

sion that I didn’t like her services — which will also cause offense. I can’t suggest my place, because she has no work studio and would have to haul a very heavy massage table to my house. What do I do? — Fleas a Crowd in Hawaii

your friend, you need to tell her because it affects her business. Be as gentle as you can, saying how much you enjoyed the massage, but that you noticed you were covered in bites that night. It might remove some of the sting if you suggest that the bites were the result of a previous customer rather than her cleaning skills. Dear Annie: I am living with a man whose wife died three years ago. Yet nearly all of her clothes and other personal effects are still in the house. How should I tactfully ask him to take care of this? It bothers me, but due to the sensitive nature of the situation, I hesitate to make a big issue out of it. Am I being unreasonable? — No Name Anywhere

Dear Hawaii: It’s possible that whatever bit you came from the covering on her massage table and not her house. Also, they may have been bedbugs and not fleabites. As much as Dear No Name: Are you don’t want to offend her personal effects still

It’s two for the show On a lazy Labor Day eve, ABC indulges in one of programming’s more durable fallbacks: Make an arbitrary list and invite us to argue about it. “TV’s Most Dynamic Duos: Presented by the Paley Center for Media” (8 p.m. Sunday, ABC) presents a roundup of 30 small-screen couples, buddy pairs, allies and rivals who defined their particular series or, in some cases, all but stole those shows from their titular stars. I love or rather, love to hate these kinds of shows. Like the old AFI roundups of the “100 Most (fill-in-the-blank) Movies,” they’re maddeningly arbitrary and contrived. But I rarely fail to watch them, screaming “wrong, wrong, wrong!” at the screen the whole time, not unlike the nerdy Comic Book Guy on “The Simpsons.” The list focuses on a few married couples, such as Cliff and Clair Huxtable from “The Cosby Show,” and Tony and Carmela from “The Sopranos.” We don’t get “Will & Grace,” but instead get Jack and Karen. Forget Lucy and Ricky; it’s Lucy and Ethel. Were Ralph and Alice Kramden the “Dynamic Duo” from “The Honeymooners,” or Ralph and Ed Norton? Don’t go looking for George Burns and Gracie Allen, Agents 86 and 99 or “McMillan & Wife.” Hey, where are “Starsky & Hutch”? Or Rowan and Martin? The Smothers Brothers? “Donny & Marie”? Sonny and Cher? Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker? And don’t go looking for any duos from reality TV. Perhaps the producers thought that might open the floodgates to Snooki and JWOWW. Who do you think the show will feature as the notable duo from “Lost”? Or “Modern Family”? You’ll just have to tune in. And scream at the TV, along with me.

Sunday’s other highlights

Scheduled on “60 Minutes” (6 p.m., CBS): the new Chrysler; the science of flavor; a website that educates millions.

A stranger in town gets Regina and Emma’s attention on “Once Upon a Time” (7 p.m., ABC).

The IRS has its eyes on Kalinda on “The Good Wife” (8 p.m., CBS).

The gang uses a vintage car to ensnare a Wall Street criminal on “Leverage” (8 p.m., TNT).

Cullen confronts a threat from within on “Hell on Wheels” (8 p.m., AMC).

While tying up loose ends, Walt makes a fateful move on “Breaking Bad” (9 p.m., AMC).

A lynching rekindles racial tensions on “Copper” (9 p.m., BBC America).


Pro and College Football Hall of Famer Terry Bradshaw is 64. Basketball Hall of Famer Nate Archibald is 64. Actor Mark Harmon is 61. International Tennis Hall of Famer Jimmy Connors is 60. Pro Football Hall of Famer Eric Dickerson is 52. Actor Keanu Reeves is 48. International Boxing Hall of Famer Lennox Lewis is 47. Actress Salma Hayek is 46.


For Sunday, Sept. 2: The way you react could change this year, as surprises become commonplace. What is a given is that you can expect the unexpected. If you are single, take your time getting to know the apple of your eye; there could be surprises along the way. If you are attached, you learn that you cannot control anyone’s responses except your own, and sometimes not even those. The Stars Show the Kind of Day You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult Aries (March 21-April 19)  You wake up on the right side of the bed this morning. Unfortunately, everyone around you wakes up on the wrong side. Tonight: Go for original. Taurus (April 20-May 20)  Read between the lines when speaking to someone. This person isn’t saying what is really going on with him or her. Tonight: Get some extra sleep. Gemini (May 21-June 20)  You could have a tussle with a partner or close friend. Truth be told, you really won’t be too upset about the outcome. Tonight: Tomorrow is Monday. Live it up! Cancer (June 21-July 22)  Take a stand, and observe what is happening behind the scenes. You might want to organize a get-together or handle an important matter. Tonight: Could be late. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)  Something you least expected becomes a possibility. Do not hold yourself back, and be willing to experiment with breaking out of your normal Sunday routine. Tonight: Stop making excuses. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

in the house because he can’t bear to part with them or because the job is too overwhelming? Ask gently whether he would like your help packing up these things (not “getting rid” of them). If he has children, perhaps they would like to go through her belongings and select items that have meaning for them. If he seems reluctant, don’t press. You can ask again in a few months. And once you get started, please don’t appear to be overly eager. You must treat this situation with the respect it deserves.

 You might need to be more forthright with a child or feisty friend. He or she could throw a tantrum, no matter what you do. Tonight: Stay close to home. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)  You might want to lighten up a bit. A friend or loved one appears to be full of energy and vigor. Tonight: Listen to a suggestion. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)  Sometimes you have too much energy for your own good, and you need to find a constructive outlet. A sibling or neighbor wants his or her way. Tonight: Less romping and an earlier bedtime. Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)  Be impulsive and go with the moment. You might surprise yourself by how wild you could get. Tonight: You wild thing. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)  If you don’t need to go far from home, don’t. Your sense of humor comes out when a family member acts up in an unusual manner and encourages you to laugh. Tonight: Meet friends at a favorite dinner spot. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)  You understand why someone close makes you crankier than you would like. Use that information with kindness and forethought. Tonight: Visit with a family member. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)  Often, you are not as conscious of your behavior and motives as you’d like. You could save yourself — and others — a lot of aggravation if you would take some time to better understand your reasoning. Tonight: Treat yourself. — The astrological forecast should be read for entertainment only.

Iran may be pushing to nuclear threshold By Brian Murphy Associated Press

DUBAI, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES — A “big and unforgivable” sin. A Western falsehood. An attempt to deprive developing nations of peaceful nuclear technology. That’s how Iran’s supreme leader addresses allegations that the Islamic Republic seeks atomic weapons. Iran’s denials — while forceful and delivered from the pinnacle of its ruling Islamic system — can carry a distinctly hollow ring among its foes as the U.N. nuclear watchdog piles on worries: complaining about limits on inspection access and reporting that Tehran is expanding its nuclear fuel labs in a virtually attackproof underground site.

They are enriching uranium far beyond what’s needed for their lone energy reactor and preventing inspection, adding to the urgency while repeatedly predicting Israel will be destroyed and actively supporting militancy in the region. But, as Israel increasingly weighs the option of a military strike, Western leaders wary of another Middle East conflict may have to pay closer attention to the claims by supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and others. Quite possibly, they may be telling the truth. Or at least to a point. Iran could be shaping its nuclear ambitions after Japan, which has the full scope of nuclear technology — including the presumed ability to produce warhead-grade material

— but has stopped short of actually producing a weapon. It creates, in effect, a de facto nuclear power with all the parts but just not pieced together. More than two years ago, Iran’s Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani essentially embraced Tokyo’s nuclear model during a visit to Japan that included a stop in Nagasaki, of the two cities destroyed by American atomic bombs World War II. Larijani met with Japanese officials and praised the country’s nuclear program as a symbol of a third path that dates back to the 1970s, when then Japanese Prime Minister Tsutomu Hata told reporters that Japan “certainly” could possess nuclear arms “but has not made them.” The major difference,

however, is Israel and other U.S. allies, such as Saudi Arabia. They would have to adapt to a huge balance-of-power shift with Iran on the doorstep of having nuclear arms. Following Japan’s path would allow Iran to push their nuclear technology to the limit while being able to claim it has adhered to its international pledge not to develop a bomb. Yoel Guzansky, an Iranian affairs expert for Israel’s Institute of National Security Studies, believes Iran could be adopting a Japan-style policy to reach a “nuclear threshold.” “Israeli can’t live with the uncertainty of a nuclear threshold state,” he said. “Iran could push over (to weapons capability) at any given moment.”

MARTINA GARCIA, RIGHT, of the Hispanic Community Organization For Life, speaks about witnessing too much violence in her community during a march and vigil against gun violence in New York’s Harlem neighborhood, on the first anniversary of the Tucson, Ariz., shootings that killed six and injured 12 in this Jan. 8 photo. Residents of inner-city neighborhoods wracked by gun violence say they feel neglected and ignored in this presidential election year — especially as a Democratic Party that used to push for gun control remains largely silent on the issue while Republicans launch a full-throated defense of gun ownership.

Urban voters seek more campaign Gulf Coast slowly recovering from Isaac talk of gun crime By Kevin McGill

NEW ORLEANS — As the remnants of Hurricane Isaac pushed their way up the Mississippi valley on Saturday, spinning off severe thunderstorms and at least two tornadoes, some on the Gulf Coast were impatient with the pace of restoring power days after the storm dragged through the region. While New Orleans streets were bustling again and workers were returning to offshore oil rigs, thousands of evacuees couldn’t return home to flooded low-lying areas of Louisiana, and more than 400,000 sweltering electricity customers in the state remained without power. Meanwhile, the National Weather Service said two tornadoes touched down in rural areas of north-central Illinois. There were no reports of damage. By midday Saturday, the storm had dumped up to 5 inches of rain in parts of Illinois. The National Weather Service said it was bringing more rain and some drought relief to parts of the Mississippi and Ohio River Valleys. In Louisiana, the number without power was down from more than 900,000. But in heavily populated Jefferson Parish near New Orleans, parish president John Young said Entergy Corp. was too slow in restoring electricity. “I don’t see boots on the ground,” said Young, who complained that he has seen repair trucks sitting idle in a staging area and fielded calls from residents and business owners complaining about a lack of progress.

White House releases beer recipe WASHINGTON — Beer lovers, the secret is out. The White House has made public the recipe for two homemade beers that have become an object of fascination Obama for beer drinkers everywhere. White House Honey Brown Ale, believed to be the first beer brewed on the White House grounds, includes light malt extract, amber crystal malt, honey, gypsum, yeast and corn sugar. The recipe was released Saturday while President Barack Obama was campaigning in Iowa. Obama has been talking about the White House brew for weeks, but he and other officials had refused to disclose details of how it’s made, despite an online petition and repeated questions. Obama even took a question on the beer recipe on Reddit.

PETER ROCCAFORTE WALKS THROUGH floodwaters from Hurricane Isaac on Saturday at his home in Reserve, La. More than 443,000 customers remained without electricity around Louisiana on Saturday morning. AT TOP, an aerial photo shows homes flooded by Isaac on Friday in Braithwaite, La. AT RIGHT, Corey Broussard checks to see if a tire store is open Saturday in Kenner, La. “We’ve restored about 45 percent of our customers in about a day and a half, Entergy spokesman Chanel Lagarde said. He added that crews have come in from 24 states. “In many situations, crews have driven all day and have worked their 16-hour day and have to rest for the day.” New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu said he too was anxious to get power back on. “Like everybody else, my patience is wearing thin,” he said. On Saturday afternoon, St. Tammany Parish officials called for a manda-

tory evacuation of areas south of the Pearl River diversion canal, as they believed Lock 2 was going to fail. It was unclear how many people were affected by the order. The rural area is north of Slidell. Parts of coastal Plaquemines Parish, where thousands were evacuated, remained under water. The National Weather Service has said Isaac dumped anywhere from 10 to 20 inches of rain on south Louisiana and south Mississippi. In the water-logged town of Lafitte, Mayor

Tim Kerner was allowing property owners and residents to return and begin cleaning up. Meanwhile, Gulf of Mexico oil platforms were being repopulated after Isaac forced shutdown of most Gulf oil production. People stuck inside stuffy, powerless homes were comparatively lucky. The governor’s office said more than 4,000 were in state, local or Red Cross shelters as of Saturday morning and that doesn’t count others who took refuge with friends, family or in hotels.

PHILADELPHIA — In a tough Philadelphia neighborhood where an offduty police officer was shot to death this month, a mother is afraid to walk to the corner store with her two children. In a Chicago area where 23 people have been killed by gunfire so far this year, kids don’t want to go outside. In Harlem, a 26-year-old man worries his family will get hit by crossfire. Residents of inner-city neighborhoods plagued by gun violence say they feel neglected and ignored even in a presidential election year marked by highly publicized shootings at a Colorado movie theater, a Sikh temple and outside the Empire State Building — a year in which Republicans have launched a fullthroated defense of gun ownership while Democrats have largely kept quiet about an issue they used to put front and center. “People are being gunned down. Nobody’s talking about it. But both parties want our votes,” said the Rev. Ira Acree, of Greater St. John Bible Church in Chicago. Acree lives in the city’s Austin neighborhood, where 7-year-old Heaven Sutton was killed by a stray bullet as she was selling snow cones. Gunfire frequently pierces the neighborhood. Nearly two dozen people have died this year, and children in his congregation are afraid to walk outside. Citywide, homicides are up sharply from 2011, though still way down from their historic highs in the early 1990s. “It’s a state of emergency here in Chicago,” Acree

said. “We want all hands on deck. That includes the president.” But within the national Democratic Party — the traditional home of urban voters like Acree — the voices calling for gun control are silent again this year. Jobs and the economy have muted discussion of other issues, while public opinion has swung sharply against restrictions on gun ownership. Even some urban voters are openly hostile to gun control, viewing it as unilateral disarmament, and a steep long-term decline in violent crime has removed some of the impetus for action. President Barack Obama did touch briefly on the gun issue a few days after a man opened fire at a movie theater in Aurora, Colo., killing 12 and wounding 58. In a speech to the National Urban League, Obama declared that assault-style weapons like the AK-47 “belong on the battlefield of war, not on the streets of our cities,” and “we should leave no stone unturned” in the effort to keep young people safe. But his spokesman later said that while Obama wants Congress to reinstitute a federal ban on military-style assault weapons that lapsed in 2004, the president is not pushing for it. And the Democratic Party, which holds its national convention starting Tuesday in Charlotte, N.C., is not saying whether it will strengthen its stance on gun controls. Republicans, meanwhile, strengthened the gun-rights section of their party platform as they met in Tampa, Fla., this week to nominate Mitt Romney for president, endorsing so-called “stand-yourground” laws and unlimited bullet capacities in guns.

Baby boomers retiring to rural areas won’t find doctors By Jeff Barnard Associated Press

GRANTS PASS, ORE. — Nina Musselman had no trouble finding a family doctor when she retired to rural Oregon nine years ago to be closer to her children. But then that doctor moved away, leaving her to search for another who would take Medicare. After a year of going from doctor HEALTH to doctor, she finally found one who stuck. As record numbers of baby boomers go into retirement, many are thinking about moving from the places they needed to live to make a living, and going someplace warmer, quieter or prettier. If they choose small towns like Grants Pass, 250 miles south of Portland, they could well have a hard time finding a fam-

ily doctor willing to take Medicare, even supplemental plans, rather than private insurance. “It’s a sad situation for seniors,” she said. There are several reasons boomers, the 78 million Americans born between 1946 and 1964, could face difficulties finding a doctor if they retire to small towns over the next 20 years. First, many primary care doctors prefer to live and work in urban areas because of greater cultural opportunities, better schools and job opportunities for spouses. Also, Medicare pays rural doctors less per procedure than urban physicians because their operating costs are supposedly less. That makes rural doctors less likely to accept Medicare patients. With cuts to Medicare reimbursement for doctors targeted under the federal health care overhaul, the shortage is likely

A survey of American Academy of Family Physicians members nationwide shows 83 percent take new Medicare patients. But there is an overall shortage of primary care physicians that still makes it hard for retirees to find a family doctor. to get even worse, said Mark Pauly, professor of health care management at the University of Pennsylvania. That is, unless increasing reimbursements for nurse practitioners and physicians’ assistants encourages those providers to take up the slack, Pauly said. If the Medicare cuts go through, the doctors are saying: “We’re out of here,’” Pauly said. “The least they are saying is: ‘We’ll treat Medicare patients like we treat Medicaid patients,’ which is mostly not.” Still, there is some good news, depending on where you live. Pauly said the Afford-

able Care Act “puts a lot of emphasis on wellness programs and primary care. Nurses, especially nurse practitioners, are intended to play a major role there.” In Oregon, Washington and 14 other states, nurses and nurse practitioners “can operate independently of doctors, writing prescriptions, ordering tests, and even running clinics,” Pauly said. Nationwide, the 22.5 percent of primary care doctors who practice in rural areas roughly matches the 24 percent of Medicare patients living there, said Dr. Roland Goertz, chairman of the American Academy of Family Physicians board.

A survey of academy members nationwide shows 83 percent take new Medicare patients. But there is an overall shortage of primary care physicians that still makes it hard for retirees to find a family doctor. The real problem, he said, is that the health care system “has not supported a robust, adequate primary care workforce for over 30 years.” According to the American Association of Medical Colleges, rural areas need about 20,000 primary care doctors to make up for the shortages, but only about 16,500 medical doctors and 3,500 doctors of osteopathy graduate yearly.
