Regents reduce budget request

Census data show big changes in housing

A rendezvous with history


KU building project also put on hold By Scott Rothschild

TOPEKA — Hoping to appease Gov. Sam Brownback and the state Legislature, the Kansas Board of Regents on Thursday approved a slimmed-down budget request and put a major Kansas University building project proposal on hold. The total increase sought by the regents was $31.8 million, down from the nearly $60 million that higher education institutions had sought. The request will now go to Brownback’s budget office. Brownback will propose a state budget in January for the Legislature to consider. The biggest hit by the regents was to community colleges for technical education. Studies have indicated that workforce-related training is underfunded and needs a $60 million increase. A staff proposal recommended $20 million, but, on a 4-3 vote, the board lowered that to $8 million. Regent Fred Logan Jr. of Leawood said the $20 million request would produce “eyerolling” among state leaders. But Regent Tim Emert, a former Senate majority leader from Independence, said that asking for a lower amount at the start of negotiations was not a good strategy. “I am no fortune-teller, but you will not get the $8 million. You might get closer to the $8 million” if the original recommendation is higher, he said. Regent Christine DowneySchmidt of Inman said she agreed with Emert, but because of the tight budget situation and Brownback’s stated support of technical education, she was willing to “gamble” and ask for $8 million in the hopes of getting the full amount. Regent Kenny Wilk of Lansing told community colleges not to get discouraged,

It has been a decade of adding renters and adding empty houses in Lawrence. New numbers were released Thursday by the U.S. Census Bureau that show a snapshot of the 2010 demographics of the city, and also provide a glimpse at how much the city’s housing market has changed. Here’s a look at what the numbers, which are part of the Census Bureau’s American Community Survey, say about everything from During the housing to health insur- last decade, ance to jobs: Lawrence !" Lawrence’s population is becoming more added renters dominated by renters. at about five Lawrence, because of its times the nalarge number of university students, long has tional average. had a higher percentage of renters than an average community. But the new numbers show that renters now make up 58.2 percent of the city’s total occupied households. That’s up from 54.1 percent in 2000, according to data from the 2000 Census. The influx of renters means that homeowners now make up 41.8 percent of the city’s total occupied households. !" Lawrence is adding renters faster than other places. During the last decade, Lawrence added renters at about five times the national average. Despite a decade of low interest rates, the percentage of renters in the U.S. as a whole did increase slightly, by 0.8 percent. But that was nothing compared with here. Lawrence’s share of renters grew by 4.1 percent during the decade. !" Renters may be part of the reason the city’s growth rate has slowed. The average size of a rental household in Lawrence is 1.94 people compared with 2.54 people in an owner-occupied household. What’s more, the average size of a rental household in Lawrence dropped significantly during the decade. The average size of a Lawrence rental household in 2000 was 2.07 people. That’s a drop of 6 percent. City leaders may pay more attention to those numbers as they try to determine Please see CENSUS, page 2A

Brownback endorses Texas Gov. Rick Perry for president By Scott Rothschild

TOPEKA — Gov. Sam Brownback, who has said he wants to make Kansas more like Texas, now wants to make the whole United States more like Texas. On Thursday, Brownback endorsed Texas Gov. Rick Perry for president. “Rick Perry is the right leader for this moment in history,” Brownback said of his fellow Republican. “Now more than ever, America needs a president who knows how to create

jobs and stop Washington’s runaway spending,” he said. Brownback, a friend of Perry’s, made headlines over the summer as the only governor to appear in person with Perry at a stadium prayer event in Houston that was put on by several groups that are highly critical of homosexuality and abortion rights. On Thursday, he praised Perry’s record as governor in Texas, saying he cut taxes and helped Texas become a leader in job creation. “On the most important issues of our time, his record of leadership serves as

Brownback was set to travel to Florida later Thursday as Perry’s guest at a Republican presidential candidate debate. Brownback Brownback’s office said that no state of Kansas funds are being expended for the trip. Asked if he had any aspirations in a potential Perry administration, Brownback, who took office as governor in January, said, “No, thank you. I’m very happy with

a blueprint for America’s renewal,” Brownback said. Perry returned the praise, calling Brownback, a Perry former senator and U.S. House member, “one of the most respected voices for conservatism in the country.” Brownback has often used Texas as an example when touting his proposals to lower taxes and reduce regulations in Kansas.

what I’m doing right now and fully occupied.” In 2007, Brownback, then a U.S. senator, ran for the Republican Party nomination for president, but his campaign failed to gain any traction. Shortly afterward, he endorsed the eventual GOP nominee, Sen. John McCain. During that campaign, Brownback was critical of Mitt Romney, who is seeking the nomination again and is seen as the chief rival to Perry. Bob Beatty, a political science professor at Washburn University, said Brownback’s endorsement is a “natural fit”

and will be of political value to Perry. “The timing is very logical because what we could have in this Republican nomination is a mirror of the Democratic side in 2008 (between Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton). “We might be seeing a more drawn-out contest between Perry and Romney; both are well-funded and both have strengths in certain areas. That means the March 10 Kansas Republican caucus plays a role,” he said. — Statehouse reporter Scott Rothschild can be reached at 785-423-0668.

KU Hospital receives No. 2 ranking By Andy Hyland

Kansas University Hospital ranked second in the country in quality and safety among a survey of 101 academic medical centers, according to the University HealthSystem Consortium’s 2011 Quality and Accountability Study. “To come out No. 2 once again is a real testament to this organization,” said Bob Page, CEO of KU Hospital. KU Hospital was ranked No. 2 in the survey in 2009. Page credited the hospital’s focus on patient care, its high-quality staff and its low risk-adjusted mortality rate,

which takes into account the severity of a patient’s illness or injury, as factors that helped them earn the ranking. The survey also took into account hospitals’ efficiency, safety and effectiveness. The University of Colorado Hospital ranked No. 1 on the survey, which was made public Thursday night. Northwestern Memorial Hospital in Chicago, the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., and the University of California-San Diego Health System also ranked in the top 10 on the survey. “The efforts of these 10 hospitals in improving pa-

tient care and operational effectiveness distinguish them as leaders,” Irene M. Thompson said in a prepared statement. Thompson, UHC president and chief executive officer, was formerly president and CEO of the Kansas University Hospital Authority Board. “Being named a UHC Quality Leadership Award winner is a testament to everyone at the hospital — from the executives and board members to the physicians to the nurses and support staff.” — Higher education reporter Andy Hyland can be reached at 832-6388.

propriation, saying that state funding of the arts was not a core function of state government. He had predicted the state would continue to receive $1.2 million in matching funds, but the National Endowment for the Arts determined the state was ineligible for federal funding. Brownback appointed Linda Browning Weis, who works in Manhattan real estate, to run the new private fundraising group and the KAC. Weis has said she is confident that private fundraising will increase funding to the arts. But Glenn said he had problems with the private fundraising organization. “The public perception is that the KAC has become a

puppet for the Kansas Arts Foundation, an organization that has not been transparent with the KAC nor the public about its sources, even though many directors of the foundation are newly appointed commissioners,” Glenn wrote. The foundation has yet to report how much it has raised. Since Brownback’s veto, many local arts organizations statewide have been scrambling for funding and have been cutting back programs. A group called Kansas Citizens for the Arts has called for the Legislature and Brownback to restore funding to the KAC. — Statehouse reporter Scott Rothschild can be reached at 785-423-0668.

saying that the budget request was part of “an ongoing conversation.” Logan also successfully decreased the requested inflationary increase from $18.9 million to $12.7 million, saying that the lower figure was closer to the Midwestern regional inflation rate. KU had sought a new $5 million annual appropriation to help pay off a bond issue for a proposed $78 million medical education building. The current facility, built in 1976, is obsolete, in need of repair and too small for proposed expansion, KU officials have said. But Regent Chairman Ed McKechnie of Arcadia said there needed to be more work on funding proposals to pay for the building.

The board sent both the KU medical building and a proposed expansion of the veterinary medicine program at Kansas State back to a regents committee for more study. Board members said they were confident that later this year they would forward the medical building project to Brownback’s office for budget consideration. KU officials said the new building is crucial to their efforts to train more doctors for the state. As far as other KU requests, the board approved asking for $3 million in new funding to hire highly-sought-after research professors, and $1.9 million more for a medical scholarship program. The board also recommended a 2.6 percent increase in student financial assistance systemwide. — Statehouse reporter Scott Rothschild can be reached at 785-423-0668.

why the Census Bureau’s population count for the city showed nearly 4,000 fewer people than what the city had estimated. The 2010 Census showed the last decade was Lawrence’s slowest in terms of population growth since the days of the Great Depression. !" Indeed, there are more empty houses these days. The number of vacant housing units in the city now stands at 7.1 percent. That’s up from 4.2 percent in 2000. Although it seems counterintuitive, the Census Bureau says the homeowner vacancy rate — think of empty houses people are trying to sell — is much higher than the rental vacancy rate in Lawrence. The homeowner vacancy rate is listed at 8.1 percent. The rental vacancy rate is listed at 2.1 percent. That is almost exactly the inverse of how the national average breaks down. In total, the Census Bureau estimates there are about 2,700 vacant houses in Lawrence.

not be subjected to the sustained violation of their constitutional rights during the pendency of this litigation on account of an affidavit’s foundational defect — at least not where, as here, the defect is so easily curable,” the ACLU argued. U.S. Magistrate Judge Kenneth Gale, who presided over a hearing last week on the requested temporary injunction, issued on Monday his findings and recommendation to deny it. Gale said the group did not lay a proper foundation for their request in an affidavit. He also refused at that hearing to allow ACLU to file a more extensive affidavit, saying it would not be fair to the state to do so. In his ruling, Gale said the ACLU had failed to prove any of its members would be harmed by the law. The ACLU also said Brown’s

conclusion is contrary to the well-settled principle that a violation of constitutional rights constitutes irreparable injury as a matter of law. If the court declines to block enforcement of the Kansas abortion insurance law, the ACLU said it is requesting an expedited schedule for discovery and summary judgment so that a ruling on the law’s constitutionality may be realized as quickly as possible. But ACLU affidavit at issue contended the group has members who will lose or have already lost insurance coverage for abortion because of the new Kansas law, and that some members are unable to purchase a rider to their policy to cover abortions because some insurance companies have not made such riders available.

!" Housing is taking a bigger bite out of the pocketbook. The number of homeowners in Lawrence who pay 35 percent or more of their monthly income on housing costs is now at 17.6 percent. That’s up from 11.7 percent in 2000. The Census Bureau now estimates the average monthly housing costs for a Lawrence homeowner — with a mortgage — is $1,413. The median rent in Lawrence is now $810 per month. !" Not all of our neighbors make more than we do. The median household income in Lawrence is $45,471. That figure counts everybody who earns any type of income. That’s far lower than in Johnson County, where the median household income is $60,483. But it is higher than in Topeka, where the median household income is $37,001. If keeping up with Willie the Wildcat matters to you, we’ve fallen behind there. The average household income for the Manhattan area is $46,150. !" Don’t get sick kids. Lawrence’s health insurance situation tracks pretty close to the national averages in most categories, except when it comes to children without

health insurance. The percentage of children younger than 18 without health insurance is 11.5 percent. The national average is 8 percent. In total, the Census estimates there are 14,199 people in Lawrence without health insurance, or about 15.5 percent. That is also the national average. The bureau also estimates that 17.1 percent of people who are employed in Lawrence don’t have health insurance. The national average in that category is 18 percent. The American Community Survey gathers its data from a continual set of surveys that it conducts in Lawrence and other cities and counties across the country. It uses the surveys to produce estimates that it releases once per year. The program took the place of the long-form questionnaire that the Census Bureau used to issue once every 10 years. The American Community Survey data is more timely than past Census data but generally has a higher margin of error because it relies on a smaller sample size.

Romney, Perry go after each other Side by side in a confrontational debate, Republican presidential hopefuls Mitt Romney and Rick Perry sarcastically accused each other Thursday night of flip-flopping on Social Security and health care, flashpoints in their intense struggle for the party nomination. In a debate that focused on character and credibility as much as other issues, Perry insisted he had backed off “not one inch, sir” from what he had written in a campaign-season book published a few months ago. Romney vouched for his own steadfastness moments later. “There are a lot of reasons not to elect me,” he said. “There are a lot of reasons not to elect other people on this stage. ... But one reason to elect me is I know what I stand for. I’ve written it down. Words have meaning.” The two men assailed one another in the third debate in as many weeks in a race for the Republican presidential nomination growing testier by the day. Perry runs ahead in national opinion polls, with Romney a close second, and they compete daily for endorsements from members of Congress and other party luminaries in hopes of gaining a permanent edge before the caucuses and primaries begin early next year. The other contenders on the stage struggled at times to gain the debate spotlight, even as they struggle to gain traction in the polls. 2 | WASHINGTON, D.C.

No Child Left Behind to change The Obama administration is offering states a way around provisions of the once-heralded No Child Left Behind law, contending many elements of the Bush-era education initiative have become barriers to learning and that too many schools, even those showing modest progress, risk being labeled as failing. States will be allowed to ask the Education Department to be exempted from some of the law’s requirements if they meet certain conditions. They include enacting standards to prepare students for college and careers and making teachers and principals more accountable. President Barack Obama planned to discuss the changes today at the White House. “To help states, districts and schools that are ready to move forward with education reform, our administration will provide flexibility from the law in exchange for a real commitment to undertake change,” Obama said in a statement Thursday. “The purpose is not to give states and districts a reprieve from accountability, but rather to unleash energy to improve our schools at the local level.” The administration says it is acting because Congress has been slow to address the issues by rewriting the law. 2 | WASHINGTON, D.C.

Dems vow to reject clean energy cuts With the economy sputtering, the warring factions of Congress headed toward gridlock late Thursday over the usually noncontroversial process of approving disaster aid or even keeping the government from shutting down. GOP leaders took the spending package to the House floor Thursday night for the second time in as many days, after adding $100 million in savings from a program that financed a federal loan to the now-bankrupt solar panel maker Solyndra Inc. The leader of the Senate countered that majority Democrats will reject the bill as soon as it reaches their chamber on Friday — continuing the partisan war into the weekend and increasing the chances that the government’s main disaster account might run dry early next week. Democrats want almost double the $3.7 billion in disaster aid called for by House Republicans and strongly oppose cuts to two clean energy programs demanded by the GOP House. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., said the House plan “is not an honest effort at compromise. … It will be rejected by the Senate.”

TOPEKA — Former U.S. Sen. Bob Dole will be the first Kansan to be recognized on the Kansas Walk of Honor, it was announced Thursday. Dole and his wife, Elizabeth, will join Gov. Sam Brownback and his wife, Mary, for the unveiling of the bronze plaque at 10 a.m. Sept. 30 at the southeast corner of the Statehouse south lawn. The event is open to the public. “It is important for Kansas to recognize those who have made incredible contributions to our state and nation,” Brownback said. “The Kansas Walk of Honor will raise awareness of the accomplishments of Kan-

sans and help begin a discussion about civic duty. It is fitting to acknowledge Senator Dole’s outstanding civic duty. He dedicated his life to serving the public through his work in the military and as a statesman. I hope the Senator’s many Kansas friends and supporters are able to join us for the unveiling.” Kansas Historical Society Executive Director Jennie Chinn said that the plan was for up to three plaques to be added each year to the walk, which will be located within the sidewalks on the Statehouse grounds and feature people who have contributed on a state and national level and have significant

BRIEFLY Ex-cop applies for diversion A former Eudora police officer who is accused of putting a cab driver in a headlock in August has applied for diversion in his misdemeanor case, his attorney said Thursday. Trey Meyer, an attorney for Thomas Clinton Leahew, 29, asked Douglas County District Judge Paula Martin on Thursday to give prosecutors more time to review Leahew’s diversion application. He faces one misdemeanor count of battery. Douglas County Sheriff’s officers arrested him at 5 a.m. Aug. 7 in the 1800 section of North 1500 Road on suspicion of battery. In an interview with the Journal-World, the alleged victim, a 35-year-old woman, accused Leahew of lunging at her from the back of a van while she was driving Leahew and six other people to The Outhouse, 1837 N. 1500 Road. The woman said he grabbed her and put her in a headlock, and that Leahew hit his head when he lunged and was bleeding. The Eudora Police Department placed Leahew on administrative leave pending an internal investigation after his arrest, but Eudora Police Chief Grady Walker said Thursday that Leahew was no longer employed with the department. He remains free on bond and is next scheduled to appear in court Oct. 27, if his diversion application is not complete by then.

Volunteers prepare for Oktoberfest Preparations for Oktoberfest are on schedule, with about 20 volunteers cooking and peeling 300 pounds of potatoes Thursday afternoon for potato salad. Chairperson Ellen Shobe said this year’s Oktoberfest will be a little different because food will be on sale a la carte. “It will allow people a moreaffordable way to try a variety of foods,” Shobe said. Oktoberfest runs from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday at St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church, 1234 Ky. Admission is free.

Report: 5 ill from cantaloupes in Kan. Kansas Department of Health and Environment reported Thursday that at least five cases of listeriosis in Kansas are part of the multi-state outbreak involving Rocky Ford cantaloupe. It was notified by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. So far, 55 people from 14 states have been infected with the four outbreak-associated strains of Listeria monocytogenes, a bacterium that can cause serious illness. All illnesses started on or after Aug. 4. Kansas has eight cases of listeriosis reported since Aug. 26, with five cases now matching the multi-state outbreak. Two of these eight patients have died and the causes of death are being investigated. Typically, Kansas reports fewer than six cases of listeriosis per year. For more information, visit the CDC multi-state foodborne illness outbreak page at outbreaks.html.

congregate, Zaudke said. Depending on the direction of the wall, windows will make up anywhere between 30 to 50 percent of the walls, which helps cut down on overhead lighting costs. Natural lighting could also be provided through skylights and tall windows. !" Mechanical system: While some of the library’s mechanical system is fairly new, Zaudke said steps could be taken to make it more efficient. Right now the heating and cooling system is the same for the entire building. Zaudke said the design plans show for a variable air volume box, which could target specific areas of the library for certain temperatures. Still early in the process, the expansion could have other green and energy-saving features. And Zaudke told the audience that the design process still needs to choose materials for many of the building features. — Reporter Christine Metz can be reached at 832-6352.

Seminar takes training to ‘next level’ By George Diepenbrock

As Capt. Erik Holland has been in training sessions this week at a regional conference in Lawrence, he’s learned things from FBI academy instructors and others about everything from budget issues to tactical strategies. “Even if I had some initial education on it, they took it to the next level,” said Holland, who commands the Platte County (Mo.) Sheriff’s administrative division. Holland said he plans to use the training he’s learned back in his department after he graduates today with 32 other officers from the Central States Law Enforcement Executive Development Seminar. The week-long seminar has been in Lawrence for 21 years and is aimed at giving

police administrators at smaller law enforcement agencies the opportunity to participate in the training instead of attending the Holland original twoweek school in Quantico, Va., said Lawrence police Capt. Mike Pattrick. The Lawrence department plays host to the Central States seminar in partnership with the FBI and Kansas University Public Safety Office. The 33 officers who participated this week came from departments in Kansas, Missouri and Nebraska. Patrol Capt. Jim Martin is representing the Lawrence department in the class. Retired Lawrence Police Chief Ron Olin taught one

session earlier in the week about future trends in law enforcement, and the officers also learned from FBI-level instructors about topics from applying for federal grants to legal issues and ethics to crisis negotiating and responding to a situation involving weapons of mass destruction. Pattrick said the training on WMD responses taught officers whom they should contact from the federal government and what outside agencies would need once they get there. “Obviously since 9/11 everybody is very concerned about what the possibilities could be for that,” said Pattrick, who commands the Lawrence department’s investigations division. “And there are real threats to the United States all the time. We have to be very vigilant

and be prepared if that were ever to occur.” The officers on Thursday learned about how to make effective grant applications because many cities and counties are struggling because of the economy, and agencies are often looking for outside funds to help, Pattrick said. But for smaller departments it can often be daunting to apply for a grant. “Platte County has experienced the same economic problems that everyone has around here,” Holland said. “Like everybody else we’re doing our best to do more with less and try to take advantage of opportunities to do things more efficiently and effectively and get funding sources where they’re available.”

Markets plunge from worldwide fears about another recession By Francesca Levy Associated Press

NEW YORK — Investors began giving in to fears Thursday that a global recession is already under way, and stock markets shuddered around the world. Selling started in Asia, picked up speed in Europe and sent Wall Street near its worst finish of the year. The Dow Jones industrial average lost 391 points and at one point was down more than 500, a return to the volatility that gripped the market this summer. One financial indicator after another showed that investors are losing hope that the global economy can keep growing. The price of oil and metals such as copper, which depend on economic demand, fell sharply. Traders bought Treasury bonds and the dollar for safety. FedEx, a company that ships so many goods it is considered a barometer of the

U.S. economy, had to lower its earnings forecast for the year because customers are putting off purchases of electronics and other gadgets from China. The Dow fell 391.01 points, or 3.5 percent, and closed at 10,733.83. The selling was not just steep but broad: Nineteen stocks on the New York Stock Exchange fell for every one that rose. At one point, the Dow was down more than 500 points. “Markets rely on confidence and certainty. Right now there is neither,” said John Canally, an economic strategist at LPL Financial, an investment firm in Boston. It was the second consecutive rout in the stock market since Wednesday afternoon, when the Federal Reserve announced a change in strategy for fighting the economic slowdown — a bid to lower long-term interest rates and get people and companies to spend more money. Economic news was bad

around the world. A closely watched survey in Europe indicated a recession could be on the way there, and a manufacturing survey suggested a slowdown in China, which has been one of the hottest economies. “The probability of going back into recession is higher now than at any point in the recovery,” said Tim Quinlan, an economist at Wells Fargo. He put his odds of a recession at 35 percent. Christine Lagarde, the head of the International Monetary Fund, said the world economy was “entering a dangerous phase.” She told an annual meeting of the IMF and World Bank that nations need credible plans to get their debt under control. In the United States, investors poured money into American government debt, which they see as less risky than stocks even as the nation wrestles with how to tame its long-term budget problems.

Sept. 30 - Oct. 2, 2011 Particle may have gone faster than light GENEVA — One of the very pillars of physics and Einstein’s theory of relativity — that nothing can go faster than the speed of light — was rocked Thursday by new findings from one of the world’s foremost laboratories. European researchers said they clocked an oddball type of subatomic particle called a neutrino going faster than the 186,282 miles per second that has long been considered the cosmic speed limit. The claim was met with skepticism, with one outside physicist calling it the equivalent of saying you have a flying carpet. In fact, the researchers themselves are not ready to proclaim a discovery and are asking other physicists to independently try to verify their findings.

Conference priorities Could a stronger stand by university presidents and chancellors have put a halt to the conference realignment mess?


egardless of how the current athletic conference realignment game turns out, the public has been treated to an up-close exhibition of double talk, greed, ego and hypocrisy, as well as a lack of integrity and the farce of “academic integrity.” All of the players in this exercise are pointing fingers about who is to blame for the upheaval of college athletic conferences, but it is clear university presidents had the power to put a stop to the embarrassing sideshow. Athletic departments are thought to be a part of a university. Chancellors and presidents are thought to be in charge of these institutions, along with their respective boards of regents, curators or trustees. This being the case, doesn’t it seem reasonable that chancellors and presidents — if they have the backbone and conviction — could tell their athletic directors, boosters and television networks that their schools had no intention of jumping ship to join another conference or that they did not want to expand their conference by adding other schools? The chancellors and presidents of the Pac12 Conference effectively played such a role Tuesday night when they said they were not interested in increasing the size of that conference. It’s interesting that all of the expansion talk has centered on football and dollars, nothing about improving the academic or research excellence of the conferences. What is the primary mission of a university: a better football team or a stronger academic program? What are the priorities of the chancellors involved in the current conference realignment mess?

U.S. must consider impact of drones WASHINGTON — What “rules of war” should apply to Predator drones, the eerily efficient weapons that cruise the skies and target adversaries with the precision of a sharpshooter’s bullet? It’s an urgent question — not simply for the United States, which is expanding its use of drones, but for dozens of other nations that may soon use them to target their own “bad guys.” Although drones have been controversial abroad, there has been relatively little public debate about them in America. That’s partly because U.S. officials usually won’t discuss their operations, which are highly classified. But officials affirm privately that they have been highly effective against al-Qaida’s leadership in the tribal areas of Pakistan — and that they are being used in Yemen and Somalia in an escalating campaign against al-Qaida affiliates there. These weapons, which project power without risking “boots on the ground,” can become addictive. According to a report last year by a U.N. special rapporteur, more than 40 countries now have drone technology, and nations seeking to arm drones with missiles include Israel, Russia, Turkey, China, India, Iran, Britain and France. “We have to be extremely careful and prudent about how we use this technology. It’s very efficacious in killing terrorists, but there are significant risks of blowback from its widespread use that could harm our counterterrorism efforts,” argues

Although drones have been controversial abroad, there has been relatively little public debate about them in America.”

Jack Goldsmith, a Harvard Law professor who served in the George W. Bush administration Justice Department. A drone debate, of sorts, had been taking place behind the scenes in preparation for a speech last Friday by John Brennan, the White House counterterrorism adviser. He argued that U.S. legal authority to use force against al-Qaida wasn’t “restricted solely to ‘hot’ battlefields like Afghanistan” but could be expanded to other theaters “without doing a separate self-defense analysis each time.” On the eve of Brennan’s speech, The New York Times reported a split within the administration. The Pentagon’s general counsel, Jeh Johnson, was said to have urged broad targeting against groups anywhere aligned with al-Qaida, while the

State Department’s legal adviser, Harold Koh, reportedly recommended a more limited rule that, outside Afghanistan and Pakistan, would authorize targeting only individuals actually plotting to strike America. These disagreements were resolved by Brennan’s speech, which took a hard-line view. Brennan conceded that some key allies, though “converging” toward U.S. legal arguments, “take a different view of the geographic scope of the conflict, limiting it only to the ‘hot’ battlefields.” Here’s the real question, according to current and former government officials: As the U.S. steps up Predator attacks over Yemen and Somalia, should it adopt the same “signature” targeting it uses over Pakistan? Under this approach, the drones can strike al-Qaida training camps and fighters not on the list of specific targets compiled by the CIA. The signature approach is more aggressive, but it risks creating what terrorism analyst David Kilcullen calls “accidental guerrillas” — and thereby widening the war. To understand the debate, some background is useful. The CIA’s legal authority (it conducts attacks over Pakistan and will probably have similar responsibility in Yemen and Somalia) dates back to a lethal covert-action “finding” signed days after Sept. 11, 2001. The CIA’s Counterterrorism Center compiles a list of approved targets, usually numbering less than several dozen, based on

From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for Sept. 23, 1911: YEARS “Topeka – A deAGO mand for a generIN 1911 al improvement in the specimens of art shown in the Kansas schools is being made by Kansas school teachers. It is possible that an art commission will be asked for at the next Legislature, with powers similar to those of the textbook commission. This commission would select copies of real art works, suitable for hanging in the country schoolhouses of the state.... Kansas people are beginning to believe that it is just as well to have their children taught some rudiments of the fine arts as well as how to add and subtract, how to doctor pigs for the cholera and chickens for the pip.”

intelligence that they pose a serious, continuing threat to the U.S. That list is reviewed every six months, and names come on and off. Legal review is done by the CIA general counsel, who in turn consults with the White House counsel. Signature targeting was added in 2008, using the same 2001 presidential finding, which was renewed by President Obama in 2009. The rules call for notification of the National Security Council (including the attorney general) if a U.S. person is a target. Such a broader review apparently took place when Anwar al-Awlaki, an American citizen who’s a senior al-Qaida operative in Yemen, was added. Here’s the real problem with drones. They may indeed reduce collateral damage, as their proponents argue, because of their precision and surveillance. And America’s growing use of them against al-Qaida may be legal under international law that allows self-defense. But what’s legal isn’t always wise. A world where drones are constantly buzzing overhead — waiting to zap those deemed threats under a cloaked and controversial process — risks being, even more, a world of lawlessness and chaos. Drones have been America’s best weapon against al-Qaida, but one to use sparingly — against people U.S. intelligence knows are seeking to kill others.


KUMC effort

ongratulations to all those at the Kansas University Medical Center, as well as the many generous financial contributors, who have worked so hard to prepare a solid application to have KUMC designated as one of the National Cancer Institute’s cancer centers. This has been a true team effort started in 2005 when KU Chancellor Robert Hemenway identified the cancer center as the university’s top research priority. Those putting together the demanding application package have done an excellent job. Gaining the prized designation as a national cancer center is a tough challenge, and KU officials realize the current national economy is an additional hurdle. Current cancer centers are experiencing fiscal cutbacks, and there is concern there may not be funds available to add another center. It is reported there are approximately 15 current centers up for recertification, as well as other first-time applicants such as KU. Even in good economic times, there is no guarantee a first-time applicant will received the cancer center designation. Whether or not they are successful this year, all those who have been involved in the KU cancer center project are to be congratulated and thanked for their tireless and effective efforts.

Alternatives may make Obama look better One of the most persistent political maxims is that a presidential re-election campaign is a referendum on the incumbent. That doesn’t augur well for President Barack Obama — at least not based on recent trends and polls. His job approval is hovering 10 points below the traditional 50 percent dividing line between security and trouble, the jobless rate remains stuck around 9 percent, and Democrats everywhere seem on the defensive, if not in outright panic, after their latest specialelection loss. But consider this contrary maxim that Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley, who chairs the Democratic Governors Association, recently tried out on reporters: “He’s not running against the Almighty, he’s running against an alternative.” Whether Democrats actually feel that optimistic — or are just hoping for the best — O’Malley’s remark characterizes how many of them see Obama’s 2012 prospects. The idea of this all being about “choice” encourages Democrats as they watch Republican contenders try to outdo one another in appealing to their party’s conservative wing. The White House is calculating that, when voters see the differences between where Obama wants to take the country and where Republicans would go, the

president will come out ahead at the ballot box. Just as polls last summer showed Americans favored the president’s balanced approach to budget-cutting, recent ones show they support the job creation program he proposed two weeks ago. A Gallup poll last week showed Americans, by a 3-to-2 margin, want their congressional representatives to vote for Obama’s plan; independents backed it by a similar margin. Though other surveys conveyed skepticism about whether Obama’s proposal will pass, Republican Sen. James DeMint

of South Carolina suggested Obama might win — politically — without passage. “If we vote for this plan, we’ll own the economy with the president and he desperately needs someone else to blame it on,” DeMint said. “If we vote against it, he’s going to try to say Congress blocked his ability to create jobs.” This week, Obama took another step to define the potential 2012 choice and put Republicans on the political defensive with a deficit reduction plan that makes both substantive and political sense. Polls show most Americans support two of its most significant premises: spending cuts and tax increases are both necessary, and wealthy Americans must pay higher taxes to make the system fair. In addition, GOP leaders may be playing into Obama’s hands by branding proposals that even most Republicans support as “class warfare,” which simply accentuates the differences between the parties and places the GOP firmly on the less popular side. While the disputes about job creation and debt reduction are ostensibly between Obama and GOP lawmakers, the party’s leading presidential candidates all share the congressional Republican position. In assessing how this might play out next year, consider some parallels between Obama’s

situation and the one President Jimmy Carter faced in 1980. Like Carter, Obama faces an angry electorate at a time of economic uncertainty. His poll numbers are less than ideal, and even many supporters concede his presidency has failed to meet expectations. Throughout 1980, reporters found many disillusioned voters who were abandoning Carter — and hardly anyone switching to the embattled president. But polls didn’t reflect the anecdotal evidence and showed Carter holding his own or even slightly ahead until late in the campaign. Only after their only scheduled television debate did Republican challenger Ronald Reagan convince Americans that he’d be an acceptable alternative to the incumbent. He won comfortably. Obama has some advantages over Carter; for example, he almost certainly won’t face a crippling primary fight like the one Carter waged with Sen. Edward Kennedy. Just as important, polls show voters still like Obama. Those polls may well offer legitimate hope that accentuating the differences between his policies and those of the Republicans will create a choice in which he is the more acceptable alternative. — Carl P.

LAWRENCE ALMANAC Through 8 p.m. Thursday.

Algae toxins in Kaw decrease The latest round of water testing in the Kansas River shows that algae toxins have decreased upstream from Lawrence. Since the beginning of September, the U.S. Geological Survey has been sampling water in the Kansas River because of concerns of a massive bluegreen algae bloom upstream in Milford Lake. Water from Milford Lake and Tuttle Creek was released on Aug. 31, sending algae toxins, as well as taste and odor problems, downstream. Water samples from Sept. 8 showed the low levels of the toxins and taste and odor problems existed in water that passed through Lawrence. But samples taken of treated drinking water did not contain any traces of the algae toxin. Data from Sept. 12 showed those toxin levels had decreased upstream from Lawrence. Samples from the same day showed that water released from Tuttle Creek and Perry Lake had less than .1 microgram per liter of algal toxins, but still had concentrations of taste and odor compounds. More than 600,000 people in Topeka, Lawrence and Johnson County use the Kansas River as a water source.

‘Forbidden Broadway’ Tonight Theatre Lawrence, 1501 N.H., kicks off its fall season with “Forbidden Broadway,” a music revue and satire that will have something for longtime fans of overblown theater as well as musical and comedy lovers. The show by Gerard Alessandrini parades characters from one end of Broadway’s spectrum to the other across the stage and through out-of-place scenes at a quickened pace. But despite being a show dedicated to the excessiveness of big-budget theatrics, the play itself is an exercise in minimalism as only four actors inhabit numerous parts and go through a combined 60 costume changes. Terrance McKerrs directs while Mary Baker handles musical duties. Eleanor Patton and Jill Stueve crafted the many, many costumes and Jack Riegle handled set design, Ron Chinn the lighting. Alicia Barlow is assistant director. The show starts at 7:30 p.m. tonight. Tickets are $13.99 for children, $19.99 for adults and $18.99 for students and seniors.

Staying alive

Matt Tait

Beebe’s not solely to blame Imagine, for a second, if Kansas University football coach Turner Gill had stayed at Buffalo for the 2010 season instead of coming to Kansas. The Bulls went 2-10 last year, and, although some of that may have been because the team was adjusting to new leadership, it’s possible the Bulls played to the level of their talent. Didn’t matter. Gill got out of town and took the BCS job and $2 million payday at KU. If only Dan Beebe had done the same. Beebe, the Big 12 Conference commissioner from 2007 until Thursday night, left his post after coming to a mutual agreement with the league to step down after a second consecutive year of turbulent realignment talk threatened the future of the league. Both times, the Big 12 managed to survive. Beebe was only so lucky once. Beebe is not solely to blame for the problems the Big 12 has faced during the past 24 months; longer, depending on how deep you want to get. During this crazy time, sources said Beebe put several plans on the table that, if approved, could have — and likely would have — kept the league from having to deal with any of this in the first place. But the plans were not accepted. If anything, Beebe’s biggest fault here is that he was too loyal — to whom depends on whom you ask — and he stayed too long. Last year, after saving the league from extinction the first time, Beebe should have walked away. He could’ve landed in another conference as its deputy commissioner and spent the next five to 10 years cruising. He had his chance to walk again after negotiating the enormous television contract with FOX that, at the time, looked like it would strengthen the league and provide stability for years to come. That would’ve been the perfect time to make like George Costanza and leave on a high note. But Beebe stayed. And it bit him in the butt. Now, he’s a man without a country, and his stock probably can’t get much lower. Some want to peg Beebe as the problem. Others see him as a scapegoat. He’s both. And because of that, it’s the right thing for him to walk away. It’s quite clear that if Beebe had wanted to stay, he could’ve fought for himself the way he fought for the conference. But it wouldn’t have mattered. Unlike the Big 12, there was no saving Dan Beebe. He should be commended for doing the right thing here and graciously stepping away without making an already-ugly situation even messier. Of course the sparkly sight of the $4 million left on his contract probably made that a little easier. Here’s the bottom line: Under his watch, Beebe saw proud conference members Colorado, Nebraska and Texas A&M turn their backs on the Big 12. They left on their own, all for greener pastures, and there wasn’t a thing Beebe could do that could change their minds. It’s hard to imagine that being OK in any business, let alone the very public world of college athletics. So the Big 12 moves on without Beebe, and Beebe moves. If this league is ever going to be taken seriously again, this had to happen. If it didn’t, Beebe would’ve been the butt of all the jokes, and the Big 12 would’ve been a laughingstock. Maybe now, with the right replacement and a little bit of time, the league can get back to what it should be known for — incredible football and Kansas basketball.

Big 12’s Beebe resigns; leaders pledge future stability By Jim Vertuno Associated Press Sports Writer

There was talk of solidarity, plans for stability, expressions of encouragement. And then there was a step toward forced confinement from the Big 12 as it sought to prevent any more departures following a topsy-turvy year in which it lost Nebraska and Colorado and learned it will lose Texas A&M soon enough. The Big 12 dumped embatBeebe tled Commissioner Dan Beebe on Thursday and announced a plan to bind nine member schools together by holding a huge financial hammer — their TV rights for the next six years — over their heads. The plan is far from a done deal, since it must be approved by some if not all the schools’ governing bodies.

But if it sticks, any school that considers leaving the Big 12 would have to leave their TV rights — and millions of dollars — behind in a blow much more punishing than a typical exit fee. “These are very strong handcuffs,” Oklahoma President David Boren said after Big 12 university leaders met for more than an hour by telephone. “The grant of rights really does bind the conference together and it shows that we fully intend to stay together. Handcuffs. That’s what it has come to in a fractured league that seemed ready to split apart on Monday. And there are still signs the Big 12 has a lot of healing to do. Oklahoma, which was trying to leave the Big 12 for the Pac-12 just a few days ago, and Missouri, which wanted to leave for the Big Ten in 2010, even staged competing news conferences to start spreading the new message of goodwill and stability in the Big 12.

Coming off another close win last week, Free State High football coach Bob Lisher has stressed the same thing in practice this week as he has all season to prepare for tonight’s match-up against Shawnee Mission Northwest — increasing his team’s physicality. “We have numerous drills that the kids absolutely love that we do weekly ... chute drills, board drills, things like that,” Lisher said. Cutting down on mistakes has been another goal for the Firebirds. Lisher said he saw improvement from that aspect this week. “Wednesday’s practice was one of our better practices as far as schemes, as far as execution and getting off the ball,” he said. “Everything looked much sharper, like we’re starting to have a better understanding of what needs to be done. Hopefully that carries into Friday night’s game.”

“Tonight, nine members of the Big 12 Conference affirmed their solidarity and agreed to measures that will ensure the stability of the conference moving forward. “The preservation of Gray-Little the Big 12 has been our primary objective as we worked to uphold the interests of KU, our studentathletes and fans. Tonight’s agreement will Zenger enable us to again look at expansion as a way to solidify the conference’s na-

tional standing. We look forward to working with interim commissioner Chuck Neinas in that effort. “We want to thank Jayhawks for their patience as we have worked aggressively toward this outcome. We would have liked to have shared details of the various discussions with you, but it better served our common objective to proceed with the utmost discretion. “While details remain to be worked out, this agreement points to a bright future for the Big 12 and allows us all to begin to turn our attention back to the accomplishments of our student-athletes in the classroom and on the field of competition.” — Kansas University Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little and athletic director Sheahon Zenger

Free State to take on Shawnee Mission NW By Nick Nelson

Statement from KU chancellor, AD on Big 12

The Firebirds faced the challenge of the Sunflower League’s leading rusher against Leavenworth last Friday. SMNW was a little harder to scout, as the Cougars have battled injuries to the point of being down to their fourth-string running back last week. “We’re not concentrating on one person in particular, but our main thing is to be physical up front so whoever they have at the running back position, we’re able to get off blocks and make tackles,” Lisher said. Free State has battled injury woes of its own, playing without senior running back Shawn Knighton last week. Knighton will be back in the starting lineup tonight. Junior quarterback Kyle McFarland also mentioned SMNW’s strength of controlling the line of scrimmage. “They’ve got some big defensive linemen. They’re pretty physical, but not as fast as the

Though tonight’s match-up heavily favors the Lions, Wedd has seen footage on the Pioneers and said no one on the LHS sideline will take the game lightly. “In this league, I don’t think you can afford to look by anybody,” Wedd said. “All you’ve got to do is turn on the tape of the Free State and Leavenworth game and know they’re very capable of winning a football game.” FSHS won the game 23-12, but Please see LHS, page 4B

Source: NBA to cancel training camps NEW YORK (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; No labor deal, no training camps and no telling what else the NBA could lose. The lockout is about to start inflicting damage on the preseason schedule â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and neither players nor owners can say what will happen to the real games. The league will cancel training camps and some exhibition games today after failing to reach a new collective bargaining agreement with its players, a person with knowledge of the plans told the Associated Press on Thursday on condition of anonymity because the league had yet to announce its plans. Training camps were expected to begin Oct. 3, and the exhibition openers were set for Oct. 9. But the cancellations, first re-

ported by Yahoo Sports, became unavoidable after another meeting between players and owners Thursday failed to end the lockout, which began July 1. While providing no details of the meeting, Commissioner David Stern acknowledged that â&#x20AC;&#x153;the calendar is not our friendâ&#x20AC;? when it comes to keeping the season intact. Stern said he had â&#x20AC;&#x153;no announcement to make todayâ&#x20AC;? regarding any postponements or cancellations, but they became a certainty with no breakthrough Thursday. Talks are not expected to resume until next week. The league is at about the same point as when it postponed camps in 1998, the only time it lost games to a work stoppage. The decision

then came on Sept. 24 for camps that were set to begin Oct. 5. The regular season is scheduled to open Nov. 1, with the NBA champion Dallas Mavericks hosting the Chicago Bulls in the first game. Though both sides repeatedly have said there is still time for a deal that would leave the regular season unaffected, neither would say so Thursday â&#x20AC;&#x201D; with union president Derek Fisher of the Lakers using nearly the same words as Stern about the coming weeks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have control of that part of it, that would be more of a Commissioner Stern, Adam Silver question in terms of logistics of starting the season on time,â&#x20AC;? Fisher said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not going to try and make a guess on that one. The cal-



Brad Pitt giving Aâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s some love

ATLANTA â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Keegan Bradley and Jason Dufner atop the leaderboard in Atlanta should sound familiar. Only this was the FedEx Cup finale, not the final major of the year. And they were on East Lake, not 40 minutes up the road at Atlanta Athletic Club. Bradley, who won the PGA Championship last month in a playoff over Dufner, ran off four birdies on the back nine Thursday for a 6-under 64 to build a two-shot lead in the Tour Championship. Dufner was surprisingly crooked off the tee, yet still managed a 66 and was Bradley tied for second along with Chez Reavie and Luke Donald, the No. 1 player in the world and one of five players in prime position to win the $10 million FedEx Cup bonus. Bradley and Dufner will be in the last group Friday, and it was impossible to Dufner ignore the coincidence. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yeah, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s any big surprise,â&#x20AC;? Bradley said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He likes this grass, too. He likes these courses, and I hope I get to play with him tomorrow. I think that would be a lot of fun.â&#x20AC;? It would bring back great memories for Bradley, a 26-year-old rookie. Not so much for Dufner, who had a four-shot lead with three holes to play until he made three straight bogeys and wound up losing in a three-hole playoff. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Maybe heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s having some of the same feelings â&#x20AC;&#x201D; very comfortable on this type of golf course ... with the conditions maybe a little more severe at Atlanta Athletic Club off the tee,â&#x20AC;? Dufner said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s having a good day. Hopefully, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be paired tomorrow. That will be a little interesting, I guess. Maybe some thoughts here or there will come back and forth.â&#x20AC;? The conditions at East Lake were relatively tame until the final hour, when sprinkles turned to rain and even halted play with the final two groups not finished. Donald returned to play the 18th in a driving rain, and did well to escape with par from the bunker on the par-3 closing hole. Charles Howell III, who appearance at East Lake guarantees another trip back to Georgia in April for the Masters in his hometown, was at 67 along with Adam Scott, Hunter Mahan, Jason Day and Matt Kuchar. The group at 68 included another batch of Presidents Cup hopefuls, from Aaron Baddeley on the International team to Bill Haas and Brandt Snedeker on the American side. Former Kansas University golfer Gary Woodland was at 72.

Bengals tied to pot package CINCINNATI â&#x20AC;&#x201D; For authorities tracking a marijuana shipment from California, the trail ended unexpectedly at the home of a Cincinnati Bengals player in suburban northern Kentucky where police say they found more drugs. No arrests have been made. Police were still investigating the case Thursday that has entangled Bengals wide receiver Jerome Simpson, a North Carolina native in his fourth NFL season. A package containing 21â &#x201E;2 pounds of marijuana was tracked to Simpsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s home. The case is being investigated by police at the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport, along with local authorities. A Bengals spokesman said the club was aware of the reports but had no comment. Calls to Simpsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s agent went unreturned. Simpson was excused from practice on Thursday to deal with the matter. It was unclear whether he would be available for a game Sunday against San Francisco at Paul Brown Stadium. Simpson was at his home along with his girlfriend and teammate Anthony Collins on Tuesday when the woman accepted the package, said Michelle Gregory, a spokeswoman with the California Department of Justice. Collinsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; agent didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t return a call seeking comment. Collins, a Kansas University product, practiced Thursday but didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make himself available to reporters for comment. Coach Marvin Lewis said Collins wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a focus of the investigation, though he declined further comment. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe it (the package) was for personal use,â&#x20AC;? Gregory said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We believe thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s some sort of distribution or sales out of his home.â&#x20AC;?


Catchings named MVP INDIANAPOLIS â&#x20AC;&#x201D; One down, one to go for Tamika Catchings. The Indiana Fever forward had two things missing from her impressive resume â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a WNBA title and the most valuable player award. Now, just one empty space remains. She finally won the MVP award after being runnerup in 2003, 2009 and 2010. She averaged 15.5 points, 7.1 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 2.0 steals this season as Indiana finished with the best record in the Eastern Conference, giving the Fever homecourt advantage in the first two rounds of the playoffs. While Catchings always has been focused on winning the championship, her supporters feel itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about time she was recognized for her individual skills. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I feel like this is 10 years in the making,â&#x20AC;? Fever COO and General Manager Kelly Krauskopf said.

By Ailene Voisin

Brad Pitt as Billy Beane. Hmmmmm. Hmmmmmmmm. Then again, why not? Who cares that they physically resemble each another about as closely as Bogey and Bacall? We are a nation of excess and exaggeration, with sports and movies somewhere in the mix. It works. And if one of Hollywoodâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leading men wants to dive into sabermetrics, revisit the Athleticsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; modest success of the previous decade, and transform the bestseller on the business of baseball into a film that appeals to a broader audience, there will be few complaints coming out of the general managerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a little surreal,â&#x20AC;? Beane acknowledged Monday when asked about his portrayal in the film â&#x20AC;&#x153;Moneyball,â&#x20AC;? which opens nationally this week, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but listen, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Brad.â&#x20AC;? Besides, the Aâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s could use some love these days. The Coliseum is a dump. The team hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t made the playoffs since 2006. Beaneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s innovative use of statistical analysis â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a theme of the book and the film â&#x20AC;&#x201D; has become common within professional sports. Even his career with the organization appears uncertain; he has been mentioned as a GM candidate with the Chicago Cubs. But his immediate concern is getting past the flurry of interviews and promotional events, which included Monday nightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s red carpet premiere at the Paramount Theatre. The film, which chronicles the 2002 season and is based on the book by acclaimed author Michael Lewis, has some serious dramatic chops. The cast includes Jonah Hill and Philip Seymour Hoffman, and was written by Oscar winners Aaron Sorkin and Steve Zaillian. In an attempt to be as authentic as possible, many of the actors are former minor or major league players. Stephen Bishop, for instance, is dead-on as David Justice. Chris Pratt could be Scott Hattebergâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s double. But in the movies, as in sports, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all about the stars. People will buy tickets because Pitt has the starring role, not because theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re captivated by a smallmarket franchise and a clever GM who almost developed a formula for toppling the rich and powerful New York Yankees, Boston Red Sox, etc. No, this is about Pitt, who not so coincidentally is the cover boy for the Sept. 26 issue of Sports Illustrated. Before appearing later in the day at the Paramount, Pitt joined Beane at an outdoor news conference at the Coliseum. The physical contrast between the two men, perched on directorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chairs in Section 244, was notable, especially since Pitt captured so many of his characterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mannerisms in the film. Beane, who seems to be enjoying the star treatment after distancing himself from all the hoopla during production, was typically understated in a white dress shirt, tan slacks and jacket. Pitt was the typical megastar: blackrimmed tinted shades. Weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worth of facial growth. A brown V-neck sweater over a white T-shirt despite the unseasonably warm temperature. But he appeared much smaller than the weight-pumping figure in the movie, and with a grin, he admitted that baseball was â&#x20AC;&#x153;Not my gift, not my gift.â&#x20AC;? Instead, he was attracted to the script because of Beane and his organizationsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unique approach to overcoming small market limitations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In some ways,â&#x20AC;? said Pitt, â&#x20AC;&#x153;the film still holds the romance of the sport. What these guys did at that time, I had great respect for.â&#x20AC;?

endarâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s obviously not our friend, but weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not going to give up on the process because of the time.â&#x20AC;? Asked again if he thought things were far enough along to still believe in a Nov. 1 start, Stern said: â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have any response to that. I just donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know the answer.â&#x20AC;? Stern celebrated his 69th birthday Thursday but didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t appear in a festive mood after meeting for about five hours with leaders from the union. He was joined by Silver, the deputy commissioner, Spurs owner Peter Holt, who leads the labor relations committee, and NBA senior vice president and deputy general counsel Dan Rube. Fisher, executive director Billy Hunter, attorney Ron Klempner and economist Kevin Murphy represented the union.

Morris excited for ‘Legends’ By Gary Bedore

Marcus Morris hasn’t heard if he’ll be playing with — or against — NBA phenom Paul Pierce during Saturday’s Legends of the Phog exhibition game in Allen Fieldhouse. “If I end up guarding him, I’ll guard him,” Morris, a 6-foot-9 Houston Rockets rookie-to-be said, referring to the 6-7 Boston Celtics veteran. “I’m right at him, though. I’m going right at Paul,” Morris added with a smile. Good-naMorris tured trash talking figures to take place before, during and after the 4 p.m., Legends contest, which will include 12 of KU’s 14 NBA players and some other KU greats. “I wouldn’t say we’d go back and forth,” Morris said of a possible match-up versus Pierce. “It will be fun just to be on the same court and maybe get a chance to guard him and give him a couple buckets. “I’m super excited to get to interact with those NBA


Texas officials, often portrayed as the Big 12 bullies, chose not to say anything at all. Still not addressed was whether the Big 12 wants to do something about Texas’ lucrative Longhorn Network agreement with ESPN that casts an ominous shadow over the rest of the league. Beebe is gone after five upand-down years that included securing a 13-year, $1.2 billion contract with Fox Sports but sharp criticism for failing to keep Nebraska (Big Ten) and Colorado (Pac-12) from leaving this summer. Texas A&M plans to leave by July for the Southeastern Conference. Former Big Eight Commissioner Chuck Neinas will serve as interim commissioner. Boren said Neinas will not be a candidate to take the job permanently. Revenue sharing and a change of leadership were considered by some schools, notably Oklahoma, as the top issues to address to save the league in the latest round of conference realignment. The Big 12 splits revenue

guys and meet ‘em, talk about the experience they had at Kansas and compare,” Morris added. “It’s going to be fun, not even the game, just to meet those guys and have a chance to be around them.” Other NBA players confirmed to play in KU’s soldout Legends game: Cole Aldrich (Oklahoma City), Darrell Arthur (Memphis), Mario Chalmers (Miami), Nick Collison (OKC), Xavier Henry (Memphis), Darnell Jackson (Sacramento), Markieff Morris (Phoenix), Brandon Rush (Indiana), Josh Selby (Memphis) and Julian Wright (Toronto). Other Jayhawks to participate in the game as of Thursday: Nick Bradford, Jeff Graves, Jeff Hawkins, Christian Moody, Ron Kellogg, Greg Ostertag, Scot Pollard, Ryan Robertson, Wayne Simien, Billy Thomas and Darnell Valentine. “I’m excited to be back here playing in front of the great Kansas fans playing with some of the great guys,” Markieff Morris said. Asked to identify the one player he’s most looking forward to playing against, Markieff said: “Probably Nick. He’s really good. I’ve not had a chance to play against Nick yet.” Collison of the Oklahoma City Thunder enters the game as KU’s second-lead-

from its Fox Sports contract evenly, but only half the money from its top-tier deal with ABC goes into equal shares. The rest is weighted toward the programs that play on the network more frequently. Boren said all nine remaining schools — all those except for Texas A&M — “agreed” to give a six-year grant of their first- and second-tier television rights to the Big 12. The six-year term runs past the next negotiating period for the top-tier contract, currently with ABC/ESPN, in a bid to keep the nine schools together for the next contract. “If you wanted to talk about one important action that really does demonstrate that this conference is going to be stable, that we’re not going to have year-to-year dramas like we have had, I think that grant of rights is a very essential item,” Boren said. Texas has proposed equal revenue sharing of top-level television rights but also said it won’t make changes to its controversial 20-year, $300 million contract with ESPN for the Longhorn Network. Boren said any changes to the Longhorn Network would have to be considered by a special panel to be appointed by Big 12 board chairman

ing scorer of all time (2,097 points) behind KU assistant coach Danny Manning, who scored 2,951. Collison grinned when asked if he’d “remind” Pierce that he’s six slots behind him at No. 8 (1,768). “I’m sure he’ll remind me he has an NBA ring. I’ll probably keep quiet on that,” Collison said. Coaches of the two teams are former Jayhawk head coaches Larry Brown and Ted Owens. Brown is a member of the Hall of Fame. “I could never picture it,” Marcus Morris said of playing on a team coached by Brown. “I’ve been around him a lot. He’s been at practice a lot the last couple years we’ve been here. It’ll be a great feeling to have him on the bench.”

The game will be televised by Metro Sports as well as statewide Cox Communications Kansas 22. It also will be shown via the Internet on AT&T Jayhawk All Access.

Recruiting: Ioannis Papapetrou, a 6-6 senior forward from Greece, who attends Florida Air Academy in Melbourne, Fla., will make a recruiting visit to KU this weekend, reports. He’s also planning a visit to Texas. Former KU center Sasha Kaun attended the academy. !

Details: The NBA’s 24-second clock will be used as well as the college 3-point line. Doors will open at 2 p.m. for

Brady Deaton, Missouri’s chancellor. Boren said that panel would likely be chosen by Friday. Thursday’s conference call came after a whirlwind month when the league appeared — again — to be on the verge of breaking apart. The 54-year-old Beebe became an easy target for schools upset about instability in the league. Critics portrayed Beebe as constantly being outmaneuvered by other league commissioners who were picking off his teams one by one and as someone beholden to Texas, the Big 12’s biggest and wealthiest member. Last fall, Beebe was granted a three-year extension on his contract through 2015. When the extension was announced, Deaton said Beebe had been “an outstanding leader” during challenging times. Now, he’s gone. That future includes finding a replacement for Texas A&M, which reiterated its desire to leave. Boren said an expansion committee within the Big 12 had been restarted, but offered no timeline. Texas has said it wants the Big 12 to stay at 10 teams. Others may want to go back to 12.

Shealy: Defense has to move on By Matt Tait

FREE STATE HIGH GOLFER MADISON BRUMLEY TEES OFF during the Lawrence High Invitational on Thursday at Alvamar Golf Course. Bramley shot a 102 for the day, and Free State finished 15th out of 20 teams.

LHS finishes 11th, FSHS 15th at Alvamar By Corey Thibodeaux

It’s a good thing Attie Pennybaker practices every day at Alvamar Golf Club. Because of her putting and familiarity with the course, she shot a personal-best 94 at Thursday’s Lawrence Invitational while the other teams quickly realized how sneaky the speed of the greens were. “The girls I played with were having a horrible time putting,” Pennybaker, a junior, said. Lawrence finished its home tournament 11th out of 20 teams, with a team score of 398. Garden City domi-

nated the tournament with a score of 322. The goal for the Lions in the 18-hole meet was to break 400. Pennybaker’s performance impressed coach Mike Lewis and helped the team score look significantly better. “She played outstanding today,” Lewis said. “She’s a hardworking girl, and she’s somebody who has the talent to keep getting better.” Sophomore Abigail Schmidtberger, who shot a 98, was the only other Lion below 100. Last week, in an 18-hole tournament, Pennybaker shot a 99. She said recently she has had trouble putting,

and Thursday’s breakthrough came from the ability to sink a couple of 20-foot putts. Lewis said the team as a whole performed up to expectations, but Pennybaker’s score was the only thing that surprised him. “I knew she had it in her,” Lewis said, “but I wasn’t quite expecting her to go into the low 90s like that.” Some girls on other teams reached the low 80s, and one, Jordan Chael from Saint Thomas Aquinas, shot a tournament-best 70. After the match, Lewis assessed what his team needs to do better. The girls already know, as

some of them admitted they didn’t do their best. Senior Payton Covert couldn’t capitalize on the tournament being at home and, unlike Pennybaker, she struggled on the greens. “I went in thinking I was going to do good,” she said. “This was my home course.” After the tournament, Covert said she didn’t know if that expectation stressed her out or if it was something else. But she wanted to do better than her 105. “It was just a hard day,” she said. Free State finished 15th in the tournament, led by Madison Bramley, who shot a 102.

BRIEFLY LHS tennis loses dual to Manhattan The Lawrence High School girls tennis team lost a dual against Manhattan High, 8-1, Thursday at the Lawrence Tennis Center. The Lions were led by No. 3 singles player Abby Gillam, who defeated Manhattan’s Anne Hodges, 8-5. LHS coach Chris Marshall praised Gillam’s aggressiveness in her match. Gillam was the only LHS player to win a match in singles or doubles play, but Marshall said he was proud of the progress the team made since its meet on Monday. “We played a lot of good points, and a lot of those games went to deuce, so overall, I’m pleased. Even though it doesn’t look like we played that well, we did,” Marshall said. LHS will play at Shawnee Mission East in the Sunflower League meet on Tuesday at Harmon Park.

Lawrence volleyball defeats SMN, SMNW Lawrence High’s volleyball team defeated Shawnee Mission North 25-18, 25-17 and SM Northwest 25-15, 25-19 on Thursday at the Lions’ gym. Krista Costa had 14 kills and six blocks, Monica Howard 11 kills and 16 digs, Kailey Wingert seven kills and 11 digs and Brea May 32 assists for LHS, 7-5 overall and 4-1 in the Sunflower League. “It was our home opener. The girls played very focused,” LHS coach Stephanie Magnuson said. “We had a great fan base there. Everybody contributed. It was a good night.” LHS will compete Thursday at Free State.

ing junior quarterback Brad Strauss’ ability to carry the team by throwing the ball. But for the past two games, the Lions have failed to establish the type of balanced offense they have wanted. Ideally, Wedd said, the team wants to get senior running back Charles Jackson 100 yards rushing. It’s not about the quantity of rushes, but the quality. LHS wants a 50-50 split in throwing and passing, and the yards-per-carry need to increase for that to happen.

“We don’t run the ball a lot,” Wedd said, “but we have to run it better than what we’re doing.” Statistically, Leavenworth is similar to what LHS has been. The Pioneers throw in the spread offense 68 percent of the time versus 32 percent in running formation. That’s a drastic change from the first three games for the Lions, when they played teams that could get by with five passing attempts for the entire game.


in Leavenworth’s three games, Wedd said he has seen a talented defense that has been strong against the run. Right now, the Pioneers are second in the league in that category. On the surface, that statistic doesn’t seem like a problem for LHS, consider-


last few teams we’ve played,” McFarland said. McFarland threw for four touchdowns last week but still found areas to improve on during practice this week.

“I tried to focus on hitting my targets more and being more accurate,” McFarland said. “Our line is picking up all their blocks, usually, and our receivers are staying on blocks. As quarterbacks we’re making better reads now,” McFarland said. The Firebirds kick off at 7 tonight at Free State High School.

The defensive approach will have to be different and it is an opportunity to get sacks, Vinoverski said. Since the Lions run the same type of offense, the defense will basically be playing against what it regularly sees from the practice squad. “Thank goodness during two-a-days and the early season our defense defended us,” Wedd said about the spread offense. “That’s what we are.”

The Georgia Tech game notwithstanding, Kansas University’s football team has not panicked regarding its defensive approach during the bye week. “It’s pretty much been the same thing we always emphasize,” said cornerback Dexter McDonald. “Run to the ball, aggressive play, when ball carriers are stood up you want to strip the ball out, finishing through the play, all that stuff.” All that stuff without drastic position changes, scheme overhauls and the ever-popular sky-is-falling attitude that sometimes can accompany losses like the one the Jayhawks suffered at Georgia Tech. There’s good reason for Kansas to stick to its guns regarding its defense and it has as much to do with the present as it does the future. For starters, the Jayhawks are just three games into their time with Vic Shealy as the defensive coordinator. In addition, they’re just three Shealy games into their time as a 3-4 defense. After spending most of the offseason transitioning in both areas, many believe it would be foolish to scrap it now in some sort of overreaction to one game. After Wednesday’s practice, Shealy, who was noticeably upset by the performance of KU’s defense last weekend in Atlanta, went into great detail about what the team has done to improve defensively during its week off. “In the last 48 hours, we have done a lot of self-scouting,” Shealy said. “You put up all the different cut-ups from the different packages and coverages and you look at what you are doing well and what you are doing poor. Then you have to ask, in the things you are doing well, if it was a physical attribute that caused it or was it a scheme advantage. On the other hand, you have to look at areas where we are not playing well and you have to (ask) is it a younger guy who is not executing technique-wise and can they get better, or are you asking something from someone that they physically cannot do. You have to make the decision on where you go from there.” Overall, Shealy said the Jayhawks’ youth had played a big role in allowing 132 points and 1,650 yards through three games. He made sure to point out that he was not tagging the Jayhawks’ underclassmen as an excuses, just as an answer to the many questions that have kept him up all hours of the night. “Some of what we have to correct involves our lessexperienced players taking what they’re doing well on the practice field and transferring it to the game field,” Shealy said. “We are practicing better in some areas than we are playing or performing.” While a good chunk of KU’s self-analysis this week has taken place in film rooms and team meetings, the Jayhawks have not been encouraged to kick back and take it easy. Players dealing with injuries were given time to heal. But the rest worked as hard as any other week. “For it to be the off week, we’ve definitely been banging,” McDonald said. “Our coaches are after us, making sure we’re physical.” Added safety Keeston Terry: “We’re basically just focusing on what our defense is all about. We’re still trying to focus on getting off the field on third downs and getting some turnovers to help our offense.” As for Shealy, he feels the pressure to get this thing turned. Most of that, he said, had come from inside his own head. He added that KU

We have to adjust. The game is about adjustments. But our compass is set on (the) direction that goes forward, and we just have to make sure that our sails are set with more precision.” — Kansas defensive coordinator Vic Shealy coach Turner Gill had been nothing but supportive. “We’ve talked in detail about what we need to do to get better,” Shealy said. “He makes it clear and I understand the accountability that I have without him even having to say it. I understand exactly what we have to do to get better. He has conveyed exactly what he expects.” Shealy said he believes the team has responded to this week’s message and he expects the Jayhawks’ young talent to improve each week. “We have to adjust,” Shealy said. “The game is about adjustments. But our compass is set on (the) direction that goes forward and we just have to make sure that our sails are set with more precision. With that comes increasing some accountability for some players to get better now, and having a little more sense of urgency in some areas we need to improve.”

Offense ahead of schedule While the defense has done some work to try to figure out how to improve, the offense has focused its efforts during the bye week on continuing to cruise. Through three games, Kansas (2-1) has scored 111 points and racked up 1,343 yards, good for nearly 450 yards per game. That’s not even the most impressive part. Offensive coordinator Chuck Long on Wednesday marveled at how well his unit protected the ball during the first three games of the season. “I think to a certain degree, we may be exceeding expectations,” Long said. “If you look at our last game, we had six-to-eight freshmen or sophomores handling the ball. To have all those guys handle the ball and only have one turnover in three games, that’s exceptional. That’s the best part.” The KU offense currently ranks first in the Big 12 in red-zone offense, converting 11 touchdowns and two field goals in its 13 trips inside the 20 thus far. The Jayhawks also rank second in rushing offense (235 yards per game) and third in pass efficiency, with a team pass rating of 181.6. “I think we’ve done a good job as a staff to make sure we package things for those guys and not give them the whole playbook,” Long said. “But they’ve done a great job of staying eager and wanting to play and getting in there and playing well.” Bye week not bad With their next game not until Oct. 1, the Jayhawks will practice just three times this week and will take the weekend off before getting back to work on Sunday in preparation for their Big 12 opener against Texas Tech. With a big chunk of the bye week spent on self-evaluation, the Jayhawks said Wednesday that the down time had helped. “I think it is a good situation for us to have the bye week after coming off a huge loss like that,” Terry said. “We definitely didn’t show up, but getting this week will help us get our minds back together.” McDonald, who enjoyed extended time on the field at cornerback against GT because of an injury to Isiah Barfield, said the memory of the loss and the fact that they have to wait to do something about it has fueled the team’s fire. “In the bye week, you get a chance to get your legs fresh, watch some extra film and that definitely makes you hungry,” he said.



Chiefs QB Cassel feeling the heat By Dave Skretta Associated Press Sports Writer

KANSAS CITY, MO. — Matt Cassel grips the sides of the podium, peering out across the Kansas City Chiefs’ small interview room and acknowledges what everyone is thinking. The Chiefs are struggling in a big way. High-profile players Eric Berry and Jamaal Charles are gone for the year after devastating injuries. The offense has been terrible, and as the quarterback for a floundering team, much of the blame rests on Cassel’s shoulders. “If you play the quarterback position on any team,” he said, “you feel the pressure week in and week out, with players and even if you lose some players.” Yes, the Chiefs have certainly lost some great players, but they’re losing games just as fast. And far more than touchdown-to-interception ratios, yards passing or other statistics, wins and losses are the most black-and-white scale upon which a quarterback’s success is judged. Want proof? Cassel is the perfect example. After spending his entire college career at Southern Cal as a backup, and his first three years in the NFL behind Tom Brady, Cassel finally got his chance in the opener of the 2008 season when the New England Patriots’ megastar went down with a season-ending knee injury. Cassel stepped in and led them to a 10-5 record in games he started the rest of the way. That success is perhaps the biggest reason general manager Scott Pioli, a former Patriots exec, went after Cassel

KANSAS CITY CHIEFS QUARTERBACK MATT CASSEL SITS on the bench against the Lions on Sunday in Detroit. Cassel said he is feeling the pressure after the Chiefs’ 0-2 start. to become the franchise quarterback in Kansas City. It looked like a brilliant move last season. Under the tutelage of then-offensive coordinator Charlie Weis, Cassel flourished in a Chiefs offense built for his success. Kansas City ran the ball at will and threw just enough to keep opponents off balance, and Cassel wound up going 10-5 in the games he started during the regular season, leading his team to a surprise AFC West title. Weis is gone now, though, and the Chiefs haven’t been able to cover up Cassel’s shortcomings in two lopsided losses to open the year. His relatively weak arm has been exposed, he’s already thrown four interceptions, and a

number of sacks have left him battered and bruised. Cassel understands that his success or failure is tied closely to that of the team and knows that a normally resolute fan base is growing anxious by the day. Already, there is a “Suck for Luck” movement afoot in Kansas City in which some fans are encouraging others to openly root for opposing teams. If the Chiefs wind up with the worst record in the NFL, then the overall No. 1 pick in the draft is theirs, of course, and the Chiefs could select Stanford’s Andrew Luck, considered by many scouts the closest thing to a surefire franchise quarterback, and replacement for Cassel.

Confident Royals finishing with late-season kick By Dave Skretta Associated Press Sports Writer

KANSAS CITY, MO. — The focus of the major-league baseball world is trained on familiar themes this time of year. The Yankees have won another division title, a couple of pennant races are nearing a conclusion, and teams are still jockeying for playoff positioning. It makes it easy to overlook what the Kansas City Royals are accomplishing. Long since out of contention and still wallowing 20 games below .500, the Royals nonetheless are giving fans in Kansas City a reason to be excited for the first time in years. They just wrapped up a 6-2 homestand against the White Sox, Twins and AL Centralchampion Tigers, strung together an impressive sevengame winning streak and are heading out on a season-ending six-game road trip having won eight of their last 10 games.

Pretty heady stuff for the youngest team in baseball, brimming with talent if short on experience. “A lot of teams tend to put it in cruise control a little bit and finish out the season, and this team hasn’t done that, not for one second,” manager Ned Yost said. “They haven’t, even when you go through little streaks and lose four in a row. They come to play, and they come every day ready to play.” Chalk some of that up to youthful exuberance. The Royals are trotting out a lineup that includes a pair of 21-year-olds in catcher Salvador Perez and first baseman Eric Hosmer, a pair of 24-year-olds in second baseman Johnny Giavotella and shortstop Alcides Escobar, and 23-year-old third baseman Mike Moustakas — all but Escobar rookies who started the year in the minors. The Royals’ three regular outfielders, Alex Gordon, Jeff Francoeur and Melky Cabrera, are all 27, which makes

them the elder statesmen of a team completely devoid of the elderly. “It’s been a blast these past couple weeks,” said Moustakas, who got off to a miserable start after his promotion from Triple-A Omaha before raising his batting average to .250. “We’ve been playing great baseball, everyone’s hitting, so yeah, I guess you could say we’re hitting our stride.” Kansas City is fielding much the same lineup it plans to bring to spring training, and the players taking the majority of the cuts at the plate are likely to be the same guys that fans will see when the Royals play their home opener next season. While the positive feelings are palpable, even to Yost, the veteran skipper warns not to get too excited yet. The Royals’ starting pitching is still suspect, there are holes in the roster and only a handful of players have been around for a full 162-game schedule. But there’s a light at the end of the tunnel.

K-State, Brown head to Miami ——

Linebacker leader of Wildcats’ ‘D’ MANHATTAN (AP) — He’s not quite King Arthur of Kansas just yet. The start that linebacker Arthur Brown has gotten off to with Kansas State may earn him that nickname in due time, though. Through two games with the Wildcats, Brown has already racked up 19 tackles and led a retooled defense that has hardly surrendered a point. He’s living up to the hype that comes with being a one-time high-profile recruit, and that only grew after he Chris O’Meara/AP File Photo transferred from Miami and spent last season terrorizing IN THIS FILE PHOTO FROM SEPT. 17, OKLAHOMA wide the Kansas State offense as a receiver Kenny Stills celebrates OU’s 23-13 victory over Florida State with fans in Tallahassee, Fla. member of the scout team. “Nothing’s changed with Arthur,” wide receiver Curry Sexton said. “I’m sure he’s got a little fire inside of him that’s burning a little bit harder than usual this week.” Yes, that fire is certainly stoked. Brown is leading the Wildcats back to Miami to face his former team Saturday. “Arthur’s just an evenkeeled guy. He doesn’t change demeanor no matter the circumstances,” Sexton said. “Arthur’s just going to go out and play his game like he does every weekend. We’re not worried about Arthur and any distractions he might have. That’s just the kind of guy he is.” Brown and his brother, Bryce, who is also in his first season with the Wildcats after transferring from Tennessee, were standouts at Wichita East High School. The elder Brown spent two seasons with the Hurricanes — his name was mentioned in the Nevin Shapiro booster allegations, though he’s been cleared by the NCAA to compete. But it was a rocky tenure in Coral Gables, which included a position move and little playing time, and eventually Brown decided that he wanted to transfer closer to home. Kansas State coach Bill Snyder was pleased to get him. “I don’t think he lacked success there,” Snyder said. “I think he was just a young pup.” Brown certainly hasn’t lacked success at Kansas State, where he leads the team in tackles and has exemplified a new level of speed on a defense that is trying to kick last season’s reputation as one of the worst in the country. Snyder said it has been difficult for the Wildcats to emulate the Hurricanes’ speed in practice, but Brown has a pretty good idea of what they’ll be going up against. And he’s giving the rest of the players the same kind of picture. “We’re flying around on defense,” safety Tysyn Hartman said. “We’re playing a lot faster than we did last year. We’re excited to play; we’re excited to be out there, running on and off the field.” Sexton said he doesn’t know whether there’s a Miami linebacker who runs better than Brown from side to side, and Hartman made it clear that Brown is the fastest defensive player for Kansas State — pretty high praise coming from a guy who occasionally returns punts for the Wildcats. “His cat-like quickness is just unreal,” Sexton said. “Sometimes you see a little tiny hole open up, and you think the offense has a shot to make a big play, and then Arthur shows up in the hole. He reacts so quickly. He kind of has an uncanny ability to just read the offense and make plays.” “We knew he was going to play well, but we didn’t know he was going to play this well, and we’re excited for him,” Hartman said. “We know he can still get better. He’s learning even in the games. He’ll make a mistake early in the game, and it’ll be corrected when we’re watching film later in the game.”


Stills stands out for OU NORMAN, OKLA. (AP) — With a bleached blonde streak on the back of his mohawk, his bottom lip pierced and his chest and arms covered with tattoos, Kenny Stills is clearly the wild child for top-ranked Oklahoma. Turns out, he is a lot more than that. The thoughtful, curious sophomore attacks life with an open mind and opposing defenses with his speed, size and soft hands. All together, it makes him a budding superstar for the Sooners (2-0). Stills wasn’t always this way. He recalls writing a paper for school back in California, only to have to redo it all when his parents discovered his handwriting strayed from the lines. “My parents, they were just really strict on things being perfect,” Stills said. “That taught me a lot, but I’m kind of on my own now. ... You only live one time, and I’m not going to be the type of person to say, ‘I wish I did this’ or ‘I wish I tried that.’” Quarterback Landry Jones says his receiver has a mag-

netic personality, an ability to gather crowds. His choices in music range from country to rap, from gospel to hard rock, even a little techno. “I’m just trying to take a stand for people that are unique,” Stills said. “I’m kind of a free spirit, you know what I mean? And people tell me I won’t do stuff, and I do it. That’s how I really take it. I love having fun and enjoying myself, and that’s what I’m doing while I’m here.” He’s also developing into a playmaker. After then-No. 5 Florida State tied Saturday night’s game at 13, bringing the Tallahassee crowd roaring back to life, it was Stills who provided the answer by stretching out to snag Jones’ 37-yard touchdown toss and put Oklahoma back ahead to stay. Stills finished with a career-high 125 yards receiving. “The players all love him. But you know, all that, he’s competitive and likes to play and he’s tough, and he’s talented,” coach Bob Stoops said. “He’s got excellent speed, hands. He’s got all the tools. ...

“He’s still very young, I think, but he’s not a freshman any more, which he showed the other night. I think he’s just going to continue to get better and better.” Stills came to Oklahoma only after some convincing from fellow Southern Californian Brennan Clay. The two knew each other from seeing each other show up on a high-school football highlights show, then became friends after meeting at a football camp. They started hanging out on weekends, then Clay started recruiting Stills and defensive back Tony Jefferson to Oklahoma after he made an early commitment in 2009. Clay persuaded the other two to visit Norman, and it wasn’t long until the Sooners had a California trio coming their way. “He’s always smiling. He’s for the most part positive. He’s always laughing. Man, I love it about him,” said Clay, who is Oklahoma’s starting running back. “He’s always trying to crack a joke — even though he’s not funny.”

Cards blow it against Mets runs, and Houston extended the Rockies’ losing streak to a season-high eight games.

The Associated Press

Mets 8, Cardinals 6 ST. LOUIS — The Cardinals blew a four-run lead in the ninth inning and hurt their wild-card hopes when shortstop Rafael Furcal misplayed a potential double-play grounder, allowing the Mets to rally for a victory Thursday. Ahead 6-2, the Cardinals walked three batters in helping the Mets take the lead with a six-run burst. Willie Harris drew a walk to begin the inning and capped it with a tiebreaking, two-run single with two outs. The loss dropped St. Louis two games behind idle Atlanta for the wild card. Each team has six games left. The Cardinals lost for only the third time in 16 games. The Mets, who had lost nine of their previous 11, came back against three St. Louis relievers.

The Associated Press

Athletics 4, Rangers 3 OAKLAND, CALIF. — Coco Crisp hit a go-ahead single in the eighth inning, and Oakland beat first-place Texas on Thursday to avoid a series sweep. The reigning AL champion Rangers had their magic number for winning the West Division reduced to two when the Angels lost to Toronto later Thursday night. Texas

Rays 15, Yankees 8 NEW YORK — Matt Moore struck out 11 in five innings of his first major-league start, and the Rays unloaded on the watered-down Yankees a night after New York clinched the AL East title. The Rays avoided a fourgame sweep and pulled within two games on idle Boston in the AL wild-card race. Both teams have six games left. B.J. Upton was a double shy of the cycle in four atbats.

Orioles 6, Tigers 5 DETROIT — J.J. Hardy and Adam Jones homered, and the Orioles ruined the Tigers’ homecoming. Back home from a road trip during which they clinched their first division title since 1987, were given a standing ovation when they took the field for the first inning. The crowd of 28,847, though, was the smallest at Comerica Park since June 29.

Dear Green-Eyed: There are a lot of things wrong with this. We don’t care how tired your husband is, surely he could work up some interest in sex in two years. The fact that he hasn’t is worrisome and, combined with the attention he receives from another woman, puts your relationship at risk. We don’t know why James’ brother turns a blind eye to his wife’s flirtations, but that is his problem. Yours is to find a way to reconnect intimately with your husband. Talk to a counselor, get some books from the library, watch some

‘Gifted Man’ newest show to repackage old ideas Much like Frankenstein’s monster or killer robots, mediocre new shows are often cobbled together from spare parts lying around the laboratory. Or the garage. Or the TV graveyard. “A Gifted Man” (7 p.m., CBS) appears in the old “Medium” and “Ghost Whisperer” time slot and reanimates any number of ancient cliches. On a very basic level, “Gifted” is about a hotshot surgeon, Dr. Michael Holt (Patrick Wilson), who begins seeing and chatting with his recently deceased ex-wife, Anna (Jennifer Ehle). She doesn’t show up to help him with the pottery, as in the 1990 tearjerker “Ghost,” but to make sure that he takes time from his busy schedule of serving only rich people to make sure that her clinic on the poor side of town keeps running. ‘‘Gifted” echoes any number of shows about insensitive jerks who get a cosmic kick in the pants. It’s a story at least as old as Ebenezer Scrooge in Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol.” Careful CBS viewers may recall that before he was “The Mentalist,” Simon Baker was “The Guardian,” an arrogant yuppie lawyer sentenced to community service who turned into something resembling a human being. ‘‘Gifted” unfolds in much the same way. At first Michael is a mean guy when he’s not being a vain guy. Then one of his playboy pals goes the way of all flesh, his dead ex shows up, and before you know it, he’s inviting sick, impoverished youth to his shiny, expensive clinic. The good news is that “Gifted” is endowed with Margo Martindale as Rita, the busy doctor’s dutiful assistant. Folks may recall Martindale all but stealing the past season of “Justified.” And if they didn’t see that, they might have caught her moving speech at last Sunday’s Emmys while accepting her best supporting actress award for that FX series. The bad news is that Rita is not given much to do or say. But the show is young. As the right-hand woman to a man who has just started speaking to the dead, Rita may have some interesting adjustments to make. And the reason Rita’s character can develop is that she’s alive. Ghosts tend to come in only two flavors: nice and terrifying. Anna is perfectly nice, and that’s too bad. Not to speak ill of the imaginary dead, but she’s kind of boring. Give me a malevolent haunting any day.

JACQUELINE BIGAR’S STARS For Friday, Sept. 23: This year, you gain a greater sense of direction, as you are focused. You will not scatter your energy; you will be most direct. If you are single, you could meet someone through an expanding circle of friends. If you are attached, the two of you will bond by socializing more. Leo helps get you moving. 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)  Others could be a handful in the next few months. What you need to do is not personalize everything you hear or what others do. Tonight: Let your hair down. Taurus (April 20-May 20)  Remain more sensitive to different people, especially if they are involved with you personally. Your private life seems to take precedence. Tonight: Buy flowers or a favorite dessert — something that will make the evening special. Gemini (May 21-June 20)  Your creativity emerges when speaking to others. Some might feel

you are witty; others think you are funny. Tonight: Hang out with friends. Cancer (June 21-July 22)  Be aware of the costs of pursuing a certain path. It could cause an unexpected twist. Tonight: Treat time. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)  The Moon empowers you, just in time for the weekend. You can clear out a lot of work, complete a project and get more done than you anticipated. Tonight: Have a ball. Love the moment. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)  Know how much you have to offer, and even if you are feeling insecure, don’t step back. Tonight: Vanish while you can. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)  The Sun enters your sign, allowing greater visibility. You know what you want and where you are heading. Tonight: The world is your oyster. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)  Others need to know where you stand. Your nerves could be fried by a demanding week and a lot of changes in your daily life. Tonight: Leader of the gang.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22Dec. 21)  Focus on your long-term goals, especially when you are in a meeting. Your creativity could flare, adding to any situation. Tonight: Where the action is. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)  A partnership or an involvement with another source of money keeps you on your toes. You might be a little too manipulative, and others respond in kind. Tonight: Go with another person’s plans. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)  Clearly someone else is in control. You might need to review a matter with greater care. Your ability to visualize could be very different from others’. Tonight: The only answer to an invitation is “yes.” Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)  Continue to deal with others directly. Someone feels so good when you focus on him or her. Tonight: Out with friends.

Dear Annie: I think my brother-in-law’s wife is attracted to my husband, “James.” James believes this to be true, as well, but he rather enjoys the attention. Whenever we are at his brother’s house, the wife is always flirting with James, touching him and finding reasons to be near him. When it’s time for us to go, she practically begs him to stay. She also often makes subtle suggestive comments, and this really gets on my nerves. As an added twist, my husband and I are not sexually active. We’ve not been intimate in nearly two years. This was a mutual decision. James is always tired when he gets home from longdistance driving. I’m on two separate antidepressants that just about kill off any shred of sexual interest. A few times, I’ve told James that if he is interested in sex, I’d be quite amenable, but he repeatedly tells me he’s too tired. I asked him why he lets her flirt with him, and he says it’s fun, but insists he’s not interested in having an affair with her or anyone else. We have been married for 12 years and have no children, so he has all of my attention and plenty of affection. This flirtation was going on even before she married into the family. I had hoped
