KU researcher takes next big step in contraceptives CritiTech sees big things ahead ——

New leadership, global ventures are gaining attention By Chad Lawhorn clawhorn@ljworld.com

JOSEPH TASH IS DIRECTOR of the Interdisciplinary Center for Male Contraceptive Research and Drug Development at Kansas University Medical Center. He is researching and developing a male version of the pill.

Doubling down on birth control ————

New pill for men may soon be ready for clinical testing By Karrey Britt kbritt@ljworld.com

Many women would say, “It’s about time.” A Kansas University researcher has helped develop a birth control pill for men, and he’s hoping it soon will be tested in human clinical trials. Joseph Tash, director of the Interdisciplinary Center for Male Contraceptive Research and Drug Development at KU Medical Center, said he began his research in the late 1960s when he worked in

a Chicago hospital’s obstetrics and gynecology department. “I saw how the focus of reproductive responsibility seemed to be largely on the female, and I wanted to change that,” he said. Tash said men have expressed a greater willingness to participate in the family planning decisions, but right now they have only three options: abstaining from sex, using

condoms or getting a vasectomy. For women, there are more choices available — pills, patches, shots and intrauterine devices — but many women can’t use them for a variety of health reasons. Tash believes he has another option to add to the mix that’s 100 percent effective and has no side effects — at least in National Institutes of Health studies that have been done on nonhuman species. “It looks very promising, but until we get into

the FDA-regulated, preclinical tests, we don’t know for sure,” he said. Tash said the pill is a chemical compound called H2-gamendazole that temporarily stops the production of sperm by the testes. Based on studies, Tash said, it takes about three weeks to stop sperm production and then eight to 10 weeks for full recovery of fertility. Tash’s development has made national news, and

The technology of making things smaller has a Lawrence company poised to become much bigger. CritiTech — the west Lawrence-based pharmaceutical firm — has added three new senior level management positions to its staff as its first international venture is set to begin operations this week. “We’re getting to a very critical point with the company now,” said CEO McClorey David Johnston. “We’re ramping up and pursuing several options for collaboration and partnership.” The company confirmed it has hired Matt McClorey, the former leader of the Lawrencebased Bioscience and Technology Business Center, to serve as the company’s first chief operating officer. McClorey announced earlier this month he was leaving the successful bioscience incubator on Kansas University’s West Campus, and said at the time he was set to take a management role with a Lawrence-based technology company. CritiTech also announced it has hired McClorey’s No. 2 executive at the bioscience incubator.

Brownback brushes up story supporting tax cuts By John Hanna Associated Press

TOPEKA — Gov. Sam Brownback’s administration already has developed talking points to deflect anticipated criticism of the newly enacted massive income tax cuts should Kansas face significant budget problems next year. Critics said their fears about the aggressiveness of the cuts were confirmed by the conservative Republican governor’s budget director in July, when he told state agencies to draft proposals for slicing up to 10 percent of their spending. Brownback and his allies argue that the tax cuts will stimulate economic activity, generating new tax revenues to more than offset what the state gives up. The governor concedes that economic growth may lag and the state may face some belt-tightening, but he says core services will Tom Dorsey/Salina Journal be preserved.

Thinking smaller CritiTech focuses on technology that makes drug particles smaller. The technology — developed at KU in the 1990s by researcher Bala Subramaniam — allows drugs to be more easily absorbed by the body. For example, the technology makes it possible for some drugs that currently can only be administered orally to be delivered in the future via patches, inhalers, injections and other methods. CritiTech — through a partnership with a Wichita-based manufacturer — has begun manufacturing a new device that allows pharmaceutical companies to convert key drug ingredients into small particle formats. “The industry has tried to do this unsuccessfully for decades,” said Sam Campbell, a longtime Lawrence-based technology investor who serves as chairman for CritiTech. “So the industry had come to believe that it wasn’t possible to do on any large scale. “We’ve proven that you can, and what has resulted is what I would call an explosion of interest from the industry.” CritiTech in July signed its first international deal to form a joint venture with an India-based pharmaceutical firm. CritiTech’s small particle device is scheduled to begin operating this week in a laboratory in India. Johnston said he’s confident three to five other international deals will be finalized in the next 18 months. Deals in Europe and Japan are likely, Johnston said. The company’s international growth, however, is expected to create growth in Lawrence for the firm. Campbell said the company is working to finalize a deal for about 10,000 square feet of new office and laboratory space in Lawrence in the next six

Lawrence-focused Johnston estimates that the company likely will grow from 16 employees today to more than 50 in the next five years. The company doesn’t envision manufacturing the small particle devices in Lawrence, but it does believe Lawrence will remain the administrative and scientific headquarters for the company. That means the company likely will be adding scientific and technical positions that will work to further refine the small particle technology and provide assistance to CritiTech’s pharmaceutical partners. But CritiTech leaders also admit that this is about the point other promising technology and bioscience startups have left Lawrence for more traditional high-tech havens. Campbell said that’s not what CritiTech is hoping to do. “Nobody can predict the future, but typically a company on our path would attract interest from a lot of buyers,” Campbell said. “But we want to make every effort to stay in Lawrence, and if the company is successful enough we would like to remain independent.” McClorey said he thinks the area’s economic development community will be watching with interest. “I think what we’re in a position to show here is that Lawrence can be about more than just discovering good, new technology,” McClorey said. “In the past, Lawrence and KU researchers have been very good at coming up with new ideas and innovations, but there is another phase to show that you can take that and build a sustainable business. That is what I think we can help prove here.”

part-time MBA program for working professionals, based at the Edwards Campus in Overland Park.) Of course, if a program could pack its education into a shorter period, that would allow students to re-enter the job market sooner. And that’s exactly what the KU Business School will do, starting with full-time MBA students beginning in 2013. The program’s new track will run only 16 months, and it will also include more hands-on business experience. “All of these are ways to combat that trend,” Bendapudi said.

Education value The shorter timeline could better appeal to prospective students who have already racked up a good deal of undergraduate student-loan debt, said Catherine Shenoy, the director of the Business School’s MBA programs. “Students are coming out with quite a bit of debt now, so we have to be

ANALYSIS The Legislature’s research staff projects that the tax cuts will be worth $231 million during the current fiscal year and increase to more than $800 million during the next fiscal year. The collective tax relief over the next six years is estimated at more than $4.5 billion. The same legislative researchers project that the tax cuts will create collective budget shortfalls approaching $2.5 billion over the next six years.

Early fallout Brownback’s aides described July’s budget instructions as a planning tool, but signs that significant cuts are a possibility keep popping up. The Department of Commerce announced last week it was ending its long-running Kansas Main Street program — which provided money and support for communities to help preserve small downtown businesses — trimming 18 jobs. During a state Governmental Ethics Commission meeting, Executive Director Carol Williams warned that one of two staff auditors was at risk of being laid off, and said administrators in other agencies are certain that 10 percent cuts are imminent. “The biggest force driving his budget problem is the tax cut,” said Kansas Democratic Party Chairwoman Joan Wagnon, a former state revenue secretary, said of Brownback. Growth potential Brownback and his allies have argued repeated-

ly that the projections are too pessimistic about future revenue growth that would come from a boost in economic activity, particularly small businesses. “This plan simplifies their taxes and helps business owners retain more of their profits, which can then be reinvested in their livelihood or the community,” Revenue Secretary Nick Jordan said in a statement earlier this month. The administration sees the potential growth to be too promising to reverse course, even when faced with the possibility of trimming the budget. Still, raising questions about the national or global economy could help the administration as it defends the income tax cuts. The post-9/11 recession in 2002 largely shielded thenGOP Gov. Bill Graves and legislators from recriminations that they’d been too aggressive in cutting taxes during the 1990s. Similarly, the suddenness and depth of the 2008 financial meltdown all but wiped away questions about whether Democratic Gov. Kathleen Sebelius and lawmakers had risked the state’s long-term financial health by committing to big increases in education spending without raising taxes in 2005 and 2006. But if legislative researchers are on target in their hotly debated projections, Kansas is already headed toward a longrunning budget crisis. “They’re going to have to work hard to explain the actions they took deliberately,” Wagnon said. “Sherriene can spin it as forces beyond their control, but the truth is this is what they created.”

very sensitive to making sure they receive a lot of value for the educational dollar,” Shenoy said. The new curriculum will require fewer credit hours, which means less tuition. And students can spend the spring of their second year working and earning money rather than sitting in classes. The full-time MBA students will also be required to find an internship during the summer following their first year. Semesters will include a weeklong break from classes for special projects. And a new program called the Kansas Issues Project will pair first-year students with Kansas businesses and nonprofit groups to help solve problems. One team this year will help Bert Nash Community Mental Health Center in Lawrence try to reduce “noshow” rates among people receiving help there. “We want them to have opportunities to work on business problems beginning on day one,” Shenoy said. Students will also have the option to stay for a fourth semester that would include more specialized hands-on experience.

The overhaul is the first the program has received in about 10 years, Shenoy said.

for a long period of time, and so in order to be successful they need to be at least as good as the best of the female contraceptives, which is the pill. So, it would need to be at least as good in terms of efficacy and safety,” he said. Tash said new drugs typically are in human trials for about a decade, so the male birth control pill won’t be making its way to pharmacy shelves anytime soon. When it does, Lawrence doctor Ryan Neuhofel said he would prescribe it. “I think it would be a great option. It only increases the chances of effective birth control,” he said. “Birth control isn’t as effective as some may think, so by doubling up it improves the odds.” Neuhofel said there are a

host of reasons that women may not be able to tolerate birth control, including a history of blood clots or suffering from migraines. “My wife would love it,” he said, of him taking a birth control pill. “Because she hates all of the side effects.”

Quality assurance The full-time MBA class beginning this year contains 42 students. The program is not as financially important as the school’s larger undergraduate programs, Bendapudi said, but it’s a big part of the school’s reputation. “We want a great MBA program, not necessarily the largest MBA program,” Bendapudi said. And the quality of the applicants for 2012 did improve, Shenoy said. In general, applicants had higher undergraduate grade-point averages, better Graduate Management Admission Test scores and more work experience. And a long-awaited potential new building for the school definitely would not hurt recruitment efforts, Bendapudi said — for the full-time MBA program and others. “It’s going to definitely have an impact in terms of attracting a higher-quality student and faculty,” she said. — reporter Matt Erickson can be reached at 832-6388.

Kansas winning war on feral hogs WICHITA (AP) — Unlike other states, Kansas has succeeded in culling the herds of feral hogs tromping through its rural areas. Feral hogs have been a growing problem in the U.S., where about 5 million wild swine caused nearly $1.6 billion in damage to crops, lawns and wildlife habitat, and by introducing diseases to domestic animals last year, The Wichita Eagle reported Saturday. The wild animals have expanded to about 40 states, which is about double from two decades ago. The hog populations and ranges have also been growing rapidly in those states. But in Kansas the number of wild hogs is down thanks to management practices, including aerial gunning and extensive trapping. Kansas has also banned sport hunting for feral hogs since 2006, which discourages Kansans from buying wild hogs and releasing them in the state for hunting. “A lot of other states are watching Kansas closely,” said Seth Swafford, U.S. Department of Agriculture wildlife services director for Iowa and Missouri. “We’re paying attention.” Curran Salter, a USDA wildlife services biologist, said there were about 2,500 feral hogs in Kansas about six years ago, and now the state has about 1,000 feral hogs.

He was just a wonderful guy to know.” The Dr. Bob Run raises money for a scholarship fund that was established in his name, and it benefits undergraduate and graduate students who are studying sports management at KU.

Maj. Dan Matthews said Salina was chosen by the national guard because a lot of training already takes place in Salina. Col. Bob Windham, company commander of the 235th Regiment, said the facility will serve Air and Army national guard units from around Kansas.

starting the project. “We saved everything and are trying to preserve it as much as possible,” Callahan said. A few fractured and broken stones will need to be replaced, and the wood floor in the original building was rotten, Callahan said, but not much else was altered. The jail’s 110-year-old oak door has survived and will be reincorporated into the reconstruction. The historic structure will also maintain its original orientation, on a slope resembling where it was first constructed. The mortar for the stones will be a similar mixture as the original of limestone and sand, but with the addition of concrete for reinforcement. The building is about two-thirds of the way disassembled, and the project is about a quarter of the way complete. Paul Bahnmaier, president of the Lecompton Historical Society, said the community is supportive of the move. “The people are thrilled because it always has been on private property and now will be on public property,” he said.

A series of fortunate events and generous donations led to the new site’s availability, Bahnmaier said. “The owner of the property we’re moving it to made a nice donation to the Historical Society for the site,” he said. “It’s almost like it would have been impossible to move, had this property not been available.” The Lecompton Historical Society recently received funding through grants and private donations to secure the $69,000 needed for the project. The Douglas County Heritage Conservation Council provided $55,000 toward the total amount. Rockhill and Associates owner Dan Rockhill said his company has completed many projects in Lecompton and has embraced the town’s spirit of promoting historic markers. Even with the minor adjustments to the original structure, Rockhill said, nothing is lost in the reconstruction, and the “context of the jail remains the same.” “Fortunately, we are not moving it that far that we are really destroying anything,” he said. Despite growing up in New York, Rockhill said he was familiar with “Bleeding Kansas” and the events that transpired

with the Lecompton Constitution — a pro-slavery document that was rejected both by Kansas voters and Congress, which led to Kansas’ admission as a free state into the Union. “The end for us is just putting one more piece of the puzzle in its most desirable place that captures the significant history of Lecompton,” Rockhill said. “For us, that it is in such pristine condition, literally as if time stood still, for us to be part of that history is an honor.” The Lecompton Historical Society will celebrate the jail’s relocation next summer on June 21, Territorial Day. Founded in 1854, Lecompton was named the territorial capital of Kansas in 1855 until 1861. The town’s Constitution Hall and the Territorial Capital/Lane Museum historic sites attract about 6,000 visitors annually.

I’ve heard that some communities have a 24-hour phone hotline for stressed parents with infants who are colicky or otherwise. Does Lawrence have a hotline like this?

A:

Melissa Hoffman, a registered nurse and community education specialist at Lawrence Memorial Hospital, said Lawrence does not have a hotline specifically for stressed parents of a colicky or fussy baby. “I encourage new mothers to come to one of my support groups to discuss some of the emotions that come along with having a colicky, fussy or “spirited” child, as I like to say. Recently, we had a group discussion about evening fussiness, and it was obvious that a few women were relieved just to know they were not the only ones going through the same thing,” she said.

Obama responds to Romney’s tough talk on Mideast By Josh Lederman and Steve Peoples Associated Press

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama, defending his foreign policy record at a time of anti-American rage in the Muslim world, fired back at suggestions from Republican Mitt Romney that the president has been weak with allies and enemies alike. Obama In an interview airing the night before Obama meets with other world leaders at the United Nations, the presi- Romney dent said, “If Gov. Romney is suggesting that we should start another war, he should say so.” It was Obama’s most direct rebuttal yet to persistent skepticism by his White House rival on his

handling of an unraveling situation in the Middle East. Romney has charged the U.S. stance has been marred by miscalculations, mixed messages and appeasement. As far back as May, Romney was condemning Obama’s response to unrest in Syria, dubbing it a “policy of paralysis” and calling for more assertive measures, such as arming the opposition to Syrian President Bashar Assad. As deadly anti-American protests erupted earlier this month in Libya and elsewhere, Romney sought to undercut what polling shows is a significant foreign policy edge for Obama by calling the president’s handling of the situation “disgraceful” and decrying a lack of U.S. leadership in the region. In a companion interview to Obama’s appearance on CBS’ “60 Minutes,” Romney broadened his reproach to include Israel, criticizing Obama’s failure to meet with the U.S. ally’s head of state, Benjamin Netanyahu, during the annual U.N. gathering. Romney called it a

When it comes to our national security decisions, any pressure that I feel is simply to do what’s right for the American people. And I am going to block out any noise that’s out there.” — President Barack Obama mistake that “sends a message throughout the Middle East that somehow we distance ourselves from our friends.” The White House has said scheduling precluded a meeting between the two leaders, who won’t be in New York at the same time. With the final six weeks of a hard-fought election hanging over the U.N. summit, Obama has opted out of face-to-face meetings with any of his counterparts — not just Netanyahu — during his compressed U.N. visit. But Obama pushed back on the notion that he feels pressure from Netanyahu, dismissing as noise the Israeli leader’s calls for the U.S. to lay out a “red line” that Iran’s nuclear program mustn’t cross to avoid American military intervention.

“When it comes to our national security decisions, any pressure that I feel is simply to do what’s right for the American people,” Obama said. “And I am going to block out any noise that’s out there. “ In a wide-ranging interview conducted the day after U.S. Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens was killed in an attack on Benghazi, Obama defended his foreign policy successes, noting he’d followed through on a commitment to end the war in Iraq and had nabbed al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden. He also waxed optimistic that winning a second term would give him a mandate to overcome obstructionism from congressional Republicans whose No. 1 goal, he said, has been to prevent his reelection.

‘Homeland,’ ‘Family’ rule Emmys By Lynn Elber Associated Press

LOS ANGELES — “Homeland,” which puts the battle against terrorism on American soil, was honored as best drama series at Sunday’s Emmys and earned trophies for stars Claire Danes and Damian Lewis. “Modern Family” was named best comedy. “We feel so lucky, lucky not only to have jobs in these challenging times, but to have jobs that we love with people we love,” said Steven Levitan, cocreator of “Modern Family.” The drama “Homeland” stopped “Mad Men” in its tracks, denying the show a record-setting fifth trophy and kept Bryan Cranston from his fourth consecutive best drama award for “Breaking Bad” and “Mad Men” star Jon Hamm an also-ran once more. The Emmys refused to play it predictably Sunday, with Jon Cryer of “Two and a Half Men” earning a best actor award and Jimmy Kimmel proving a game but uneven host. “I’m one of those pesky Brits, I apologize,” said Lewis, who plays an American in the espionage thriller. “I don’t really believe in judging art, but I thought I’d show up just in case.” Danes, eye-catching in a bright yellow dress that gracefully draped the pregnant actress, was effusive. “My husband, my love, my life, my baby daddy, this doesn’t mean anything without you,” she said to her spouse, actor Hugh Dancy. Backstage, Danes said she particularly appreciated one fan: President Barack Obama has said he’s a fan of “Homeland,” about a Marine and former POW who’s suspected of working for al Qaeda. “No pressure,” the ac-

On the comedy side, Emmy voters decided that “Two and a Half Men” with Jon Cryer and without Charlie Sheen is really good, as Cryer claimed the best comedy actor trophy. “Don’t panic, people. Something has clearly gone terribly wrong. I’m stunned,” said Cryer, who on the red carpet before the show has expressed confidence he wouldn’t win.

There was at least a minor backlash online as some questioned whether the show had a deserving season.

Akin rebuilding Senate bid after rape remark By David A. Lieb Associated Press

JEFFERSON CITY, MO. — Written off by many in his own party a mere month ago, Republican Rep. Todd Akin has been slowly rebuilding his Senate campaign after apologizing for inflammatory remarks about pregnancy and rape. Now Akin is approaching a critical week that could determine whether his re-emerging campaign can gain enough momentum to put Missouri back in the battleground column as Republicans attempt to win control of

the Senate from Democrats. Tuesday is the deadline for Akin to get a court order to drop his challenge of Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill. But Akin says he won’t do so. Instead, Akin plans to ramp up his campaign. He’s holding a fundraiser Monday with former Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich. He’s addressing a potentially influential group of pastors Tuesday morning. Then as the drop-out clock ticks down, he’s kicking off a statewide bus tour for his Senate bid that will

include venerable conservative activist Phyllis Schlafly. “I believe the state of the campaign is looking better and better,” Akin said Friday after engaging McCaskill in their first debate and then rallying on the Missouri Capitol lawn with supporters of a newly formed women-for-Akin coalition. Akin has apologized repeatedly since a TV interview aired Aug. 19 in which he suggested that women’s bodies have a natural defense against pregnancy in cases of “legitimate rape.” He has repeatedly rejected calls of

top national Republicans — including presidential candidate Mitt Romney — to quit the race so the state GOP committee can appoint a replacement candidate. Yet some have doubted Akin’s resolve. “There are a lot of donors who have sat on the sidelines and are waiting” for Tuesday’s drop-out deadline to pass, said Rick Tyler, a former Gingrich aide who joined Akin’s campaign as part of the re-building effort. “We are tilling that hard soil now — that is, reaching out to people who could potentially give significant amounts of dollars.”

“My expectation is, my hope is that that’s no longer their number one priority,” Obama said. “I’m hoping that after the smoke clears and the election season’s over that that spirit of cooperation comes more to the fore.” Romney, in an interview conducted last week, sought to deflect attention from his running mate, Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan, over their differences in Medicare policy: “I’m the guy running for president, not him.” While reaffirming his commitment to lowering all income tax rates by 20 percent, Romney expressed no unease about his refusal to offer specifics, such as which loopholes and deductions he’d eliminate to pay for the cuts. “The devil’s in the details. The angel is in the

policy, which is creating more jobs,” Romney said, adding that he doesn’t want to see overall government revenue reduced. The “60 Minutes” interviews came as Romney’s campaign strove to turn the page on a week of public stumbles and Republican hand-wringing, promising a redoubled effort in the most competitive states to undercut Obama’s economic record as voters tune in for the final six weeks of a deadlocked race. A secretly recorded video released last Monday showed Romney writing off his prospects for winning over the almost half of Americans who he said pay no taxes, are dependent upon government and see themselves as victims dominated the week.

Libya orders ‘illegitimate’ militias to join government or disband By Esam Mohamed and Osama Alfitory Associated Press

BENGHAZI, LIBYA — The Libyan army on Sunday said it raided several militia outposts operating outside government control in the capital, Tripoli, while in the east, the militia suspected in the Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. Consulate said it had disbanded on orders of the country’s president. President Mohammed el-Megaref said late Saturday all of the country’s militias must come under government authority or disband, a move that appeared aimed at harnessing popular anger against the powerful armed groups following the attack that killed the U.S. ambassador. The assault on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, which left Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans dead, has sparked an angry backlash among many Libyans against the myriad of armed factions that continue to run rampant across the nation nearly

a year after the end of the country’s civil war. On Friday, residents of Benghazi — the cradle of the Libyan revolution last year that toppled dictator Moammar Gadhafi — staged a mass demonstration against the militias before storming the compounds of several armed groups in the city in an unprecedented protest to demand the militias dissolve. The government has taken advantage of the popular sentiment to move quickly. In a statement published by the official LANA news agency, the military asked all armed groups using the army’s camps, outposts and barracks in Tripoli, and other cities to hand them over. It warned that it will resort to force if the groups refuse. On Sunday, security forces raided a number of sites in the capital, including a military outpost on the main airport road, which were being used as bases by disparate militias since Gadhafi was driven from the capital around a year ago, according to

military spokesman Ali alShakhli. Tripoli resident AbdelSalam Sikayer said he believes the government is able to make this push now because, thanks to the country’s first free election in decades that took place in July, the public generally trusts it. “There was no trust before the election of the National Congress that is backed by the legitimacy of the people and which chose the country’s leader. There is a feeling that the national army will really be built,” he said. The government faces a number of obstacles, though. It needs the most powerful militias on its side to help disband the rest. It also relies on militias for protection of vital institutions and has used them to secure the borders, airports, hospitals and even July’s election. Some of the militias have taken steps over the past several weeks to consolidate and work as contracted government security forces that are paid monthly salaries.

Giant panda cub born at National Zoo dies By Ben Nuckols Associated Press

WASHINGTON — The giant panda cub born a week ago at the National Zoo in Washington died Sunday morning, saddening zoo officials and visitors who had heralded its unexpected arrival. The 4-ounce cub, about the size of a stick of butter, showed no obvious signs of distress and made its final recorded noise shortly before 9 a.m. Sunday, zoo officials said at a news conference. The cub’s mother, Mei Xiang, then made an unusual honking sound at 9:17 a.m. that her keepers interpreted as a distress call, and she moved away from where she had been nesting with the cub. About an hour later, one keeper distracted her with honey water while another used an instrument similar to a lacrosse stick to pick up the cub. The cub, whose gender could not be determined externally, was not breathing and its heart had stopped. A veterinarian attempted CPR before it was pronounced dead at 10:28 a.m.

Sinai raids may force accord changes JERUSALEM — Israeli officials said Sunday they would resist any Egyptian attempts to reopen the military arrangements under the countries’ historic peace deal, despite the rapidly deteriorating security situation in Egypt’s Sinai peninsula. But following a series of attacks staged by militants in the Sinai, including a raid that killed an Israeli soldier last week, Israel may have no choice but to allow Egypt to beef up its forces in the largely demilitarized border area. Friday’s shooting is likely to fuel new Egyptian calls to reopen the peace treaty. In recent years, as shadowy militant groups have grown more active in the Sinai, Egyptian security officials have said they need to be allowed more firepower to bring the area under control. Ansar Jerusalem, a group inspired by al-Qaida that is hostile to both Israel and Egypt, claimed responsibility for the latest attack. For now, Israel is standing tough. Israel’s hard-line foreign minister, Avigdor Lieberman, said Sunday that Israel would not agree to reevaluate the terms of the peace deal.

THIS DEC. 19, 2011, FILE PHOTO SHOWS Mei Xiang, the female giant panda at the Smithsonian’s National Zoo in Washington, D.C. The panda cub born to Mei Xiang on Sept. 16, 2012, died Sunday. “This is devastating for all of us here,” National Zoo director Dennis Kelly said at a news conference. “It’s hard to describe how much passion and energy and thought and care has gone into this.” Four American zoos have pandas, but Washington’s pandas are treated like royalty. The zoo was given its first set of pandas in 1972 as a gift from China to commemorate President Richard Nixon’s historic visit to the country. Mei Xiang’s first cub,

Tai Shan, born in 2005, enjoyed enormous popularity before he was returned to China in 2010. The new cub, born Sept. 16, had been a surprise at the zoo. Fourteen-yearold Mei Xiang had five failed pregnancies before giving birth. Panda cubs are especially delicate and vulnerable to infection and other illness. The first weeks of life are critical for the cubs as mothers have to make sure they stay warm and get enough to eat.

Iraq shrugs off calls to reconsider death penalty BAGHDAD (AP) — Iraq has executed nearly 100 people so far this year, a big increase over previous years that has intensified concern about whether defendants are receiving fair trials in a country where the United States has spent billions of dollars trying to reform the judicial system after decades of dictatorship. The government says most of the executed had been convicted of terrorism as bombings and shootings persist in Iraq, albeit not at the levels at the height of its conflict years ago. However, international observers worry that the legal process is faulty and that some trials are politically motivated — including this month’s death sentence against Iraq’s fugitive Sunni vice president, Tariq al-Hashemi, a longtime foe of Shiite Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki who was convicted in absentia of running death squads. The executions in 2012 of at least 96 people, all by hanging, amount to more than a quarter of all convicts

who have been put to death in the last eight tumultuous years under leaders who struggled to stabilize a country at war after dictator Saddam Hussein was ousted in the U.S.-led war. Christof Heyns, the U.N. investigator on arbitrary executions, described the government-sanctioned executions as “arbitrary killing” that is “committed behind a smokescreen of flawed legal processes.” He warned that the “ continued lack of transparency about the implementation of the death penalty in Iraq, and the country’s recent record, raise serious concerns about the question of what to expect in the future.” He made the remarks in a statement in August after more than two dozen people were executed in one week. Since 2005, Iraq’s government has executed 372 people. Haider al-Saadi, the spokesman for the Iraqi Justice Ministry, said the death penalty is the best way for the Iraqi government to ease the suffering of the victims’ families.

Teaching opportunity With obesity rates on the rise, it only makes sense to try to teach youngsters healthy eating habits.

I

f the current trend continues, a new report indicates, 62 percent of the adult population of Kansas in 2030 will be obese. That would contribute to an estimated 367,000 new cases of Type 2 diabetes and 769,000 new cases of heart disease and stroke. With that in mind, is it unreasonable to try to instill some better eating habits in Kansas youngsters? The intersection of these two issues in recent news coverage seems undeniable. The obesity study, “F is for Fat: How Obesity Threatens America’s Future,” was released last week by the Trust for America’s Health and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. The previous week, U.S. Rep. Tim Huelskamp, R-Kan., co-sponsored a bill that would eliminate calorie limits for school lunches established as part of 2010 Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act. The law is designed in part to address childhood obesity, but Huelskamp, who represents the state’s 1st Congressional District, indicated he had received complaints about school lunches leaving students in his district hungry. The goal of the law that Huelskamp and Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, are attacking is to make school lunches more healthy. The new law mandates an increase in federal subsidies for school meal programs, but it also requires those programs to increase the availability of whole grains, fruits, vegetables and low-fat milk, and to set limits on calories and saturated fat. Those limits don’t seem particularly draconian. Meals for students in kindergarten through fifth grade can includes up to 650 calories. That goes up to 700 calories for seventh- and eighth-graders and to 850 calories for high school lunches. The idea is for schools to offer students more lowcalorie foods instead of relying on highcalorie standards. Many schools, including some in the Lawrence area, have responded by limiting the size of entrees but offering virtually unlimited amounts of fruits and vegetables to students. If children are going hungry at lunch, it may be because they need to make different choices. The new lunch guidelines represent a change, which is bound to cause some negative reaction, but sometimes change can promote a learning process. If students develop a taste for healthy foods that also keeps them from being hungry, perhaps the state can defy that 2030 obesity prediction.

American optimism is defining myth Here’s what we believe: For most of our history, Americans — who planted colonies on inhospitable shores, rebelled against the most formidable power on Earth, settled a wild continent, built an industrial empire, broke the gravitational pull of the planet and landed on the moon — have been a wildly optimistic people. Only in this new century have we come to believe the next generation’s fate might be worse than ours. Here’s what’s true: We’re not that optimistic, and haven’t been for years, even decades. For decades we’ve believed that those who follow us will have it harder than we had it. This is the great American disconnect. We’re living a myth, but then again, it is the myth that defines us — and our politics. Today, by a 2-to-1 margin, Americans believe the next generation will be worse off than we are. Some 23 years ago, Americans believed by a 2-to-1 margin that the next generation would be worse off than we were. Remember that the 1989 poll was taken only five months after the greatest optimist in presidential history, Ronald Reagan, had left office and when his handpicked heir, George H.W. Bush, was still enjoying a political honeymoon. As that legendary political commentator Richard Farina might say: Been down so long it looks like up from here. In fact, in three decades of CBS News/New York Times polling, Americans have consistently held the pessimistic view. The only exception came during the last months of the presidency of Bill Clinton, which goes a long way toward explaining why the Democrats countered the “Are you better off?” taunts of the Republicans by putting the 42nd president on stage at their convention

David Shribman dshribman@post-gazette.com

The key to U.S. history isn’t that we thought the future would be brighter, but that we did things to assure it would be.” for what they knew would be a bravura performance. The truth is that life is tough and always has been, even in the richest country on Earth, even in a land endowed with great resources, even in a nation peopled with workers strong in mind as well as body and empowered with grit, dedication and intelligence. History may be the story of humankind’s great achievements — the electric light, air travel, the microwave oven, the iPad — but it is just as much the story of humankind’s great disappointments. When World War I, a needless conflict produced by heedless European leaders, ended, the Great Depression followed, the League of Nations fizzled and a depression fell across the globe. World War II, the worst calamity in all of history, ended with freedom triumphant, but within months the world settled into a debilitating Cold War that drained our resources and spirit and warped our foreign and domestic policies. Then Communism fell, but soon the peace dividend disappeared, terrorism touched our shores, our freedoms were threatened by our enemies and by our own government, and then an incapacitating re-

cession sapped our energies and dampened our hopes. Yes, that’s a short, oversimplified and relentlessly pessimistic history of the last century. But the beginning of knowledge is the recognition of our true selves, and in fact Americans are both optimistic and pessimistic, bravely approaching the future — but deeply afraid of its uncertainty. It was rational to fear the effects of the Great Depression and to worry about the outcome of World War II. Today we know that both the economic and the geopolitical threats were defeated, but those things were not known in 1930 and 1942, respectively, and there was ample reason to believe that deprivation and Nazism might prevail. Today we say we won those battles because of the irresistible power of freedom (in the marketplace, in the voting booth and in the mind), but those triumphs weren’t inevitable. It was good, very good, that they happened, but it was never a sure thing. All of which is why the conversation about whether we feel the next generation will have it better or worse is really beside the point, though maybe irresistible. There is so much we don’t know: Will Iran get the bomb? Will the economy return to robust health? Will the enemies we don’t know be even worse than the ones we do know, and will one challenge be replaced by another, just as Nazism and Fascism were followed by Communism — and just as the threat from the Soviets was replaced by the threat from al-Qaida? And given so much uncertainty, it is natural — rational, even — to feel unsettled. Things are bad now, to be sure. Even Democrats acknowledge the Obama administration hasn’t been able to make things right, to return us

to the world we knew and the world we now think seems so sunny, forgetting of course the clouds of yesterday. The question isn’t our expectations for the next generation. The question is whether the current generation has the will to assure that the next generation has a fair chance to prevail over the threats it encounters. The question isn’t whether the next generation will live more comfortably, but whether the current generation has the imagination to find solutions to the entitlements crisis, the energy challenge, the cost of health care and the threat of weapons of mass destruction. The presidential candidates are in a pointless debate. Of course we feel the next generation will have it worse than we did, a sentiment fortified by this month’s report that U.S. median income is the lowest since 1995. But we’ve been feeling that way for years — and it shouldn’t alarm us, whether we’re Democrats struggling to defend the president or Republicans trying to use our unease to topple the president. The key to U.S. history isn’t that we thought the future would be brighter, but that we did things to assure it would be. Use that as the prism through which you view the campaign, and your perspective will be markedly different. Candidates love to say American elections are about the future. But our own history and our own polling data show us that they are not about what life may be in the future but whether we have the capacity to control the present — and thus to mold the future. That’s what Campaign 2012 is really about, or should be. — David M. Shribman is executive editor of the Pittsburgh PostGazette.

To the editor: I was stunned to read in Wednesday’s paper that the city is considering spending $1 million, including $325,000 in public funds, on 72 new parking spaces downtown. I go to downtown Lawrence for most of my shopping and entertainment. I have never had trouble finding a parking spot, even at the busiest times of the week. Tellingly, the article was situated right above a blurb that Kansas obesity rates may double in the next 20 years. A million dollars could greatly improve access to downtown via public transportation or walking and bike paths from other parts of the city. These alternate methods of transportation would be far more supportive of residents’ physical health than further encouraging reliance on automobiles, would entice more people to go downtown more frequently and would reduce carbon emissions. Some business owners in the downtown area worry that they will lose business if potential customers cannot find parking nearby. They are vast-

ly underestimating the value of a downtown location. People don’t patronize a downtown business because they want to drive up, make their purchase and be on their way. We go because we like the downtown atmosphere, like walking around, doing some shopping and stopping for a meal or a coffee. If your business does not benefit from this kind of foot traffic, you might want to consider relocating to a strip mall. It would probably save you a bundle and it seems like there are plenty of those locations available. Jessica Sprague-Jones, Lawrence

Look at science To the editor: I don’t consider myself one who goes to the extreme over the environment. But grant me time to share a few thoughts with any who refuses to accept the possibility that man is having an adverse effect on our environment. We enjoy the luxury and convenience of microwave ovens, computers, cell phones, air-conditioning, flat-screen TVs, preserved and pasteurized foods, and the science of medicine. We marvel about

man on the moon, exploring Mars and beyond. GPS and weather-related satellites bring us information about where we are and how hot tomorrow will be. Science made all those things possible. I doubt we would give up many of those marvels. We buy insurance policies on our cars, houses and bodies. We spend billions of dollars defending our country in case someone decides they don’t like us very much, insurance for ourselves and country. Insurance is our fall-back position against the unexpected. Given the millions of benefits we all enjoy through science, why would we deny the findings of hundreds of people with PhD’s in environmental science warning us that man is negatively affecting the climate of the very place we live. Did we object to the science of microwaves or cell phones? I don’t relish paying for insurance, but with the environment, it’s not just your life you are gambling with – it is mine and every other living thing on Earth. If you reject the findings of environmental science, show me your research and

PhD in that field. I have one question for you: What if you are wrong? Ron Burgess, Lawrence

Tax math To the editor: Let’s do the math on the federal income taxes of a single person working full-time and making the minimum wage. That’s $7.25 times a 40hour week equals $290, times 52 weeks equals $15,080. The standard deduction is $9,500, leaving $5,580. Tax on 1040EZ 2011 equals $558. That $558 may not seem like much to most people, but it is a lot for someone living on minimum wage. Craig Voorhees, Lawrence

CHIEFS 27, SAINTS 24, OT

Tom Keegan tkeegan@ljworld.com

Kansas won’t be fixed quickly Executing a pair of key completions that didn’t happen and the Kansas University football team could boast a 3-1 record, instead of 1-3. Not only that, the reality of the challenge that faces Charlie Weis could have been delayed, shoved for the moment into the shadow cast by a winning record. Try telling anybody a quick fix simply isn’t a realistic possibility for a team that has a 3-1 record. It shouldn’t be so tough to see that now for a program that has gone 6-29 in its past 35 games. Things stand to get worse before they get better, with the remaining eight games all against Big 12 teams and so many starters out of eligibility after this season. Weis fixed the troublesome academic state of the program swiftly, appointing himself academic liaison and running from the program those not interested in the student half of the studentathlete title. Guys with dirty urine were shown the door as well. In the case of good-guy quarterback Jordan Webb, Weis’ assessment of his talent led to his departure. Charlie has upgraded the good-citizen aspect of the program. Now he needs to attract more good football players. On a day when former Jayhawks encountered mixed results — Webb threw for 345 yards in leading Colorado to its first victory; Turner Gill’s Liberty squad, 7-4 a year ago, dropped to 0-4 — Kansas had mounting concerns exposed on the right side of its offensive line and at quarterback. Looking to 2013, the offensive line shapes up as the most frightening concern. Fifth-year seniors center Trevor Marrongelli, left guard Duane Zlatnik and left tackle Tanner Hawkinson will leave a huge void in more ways than physically. Three-fourths of the starting secondary also must be replaced. Even if promising young players develop alongside returner Tyler Patmon, the lack of experience will show. At quarterback, Jake Heaps, whose star faded during his two years at Brigham Young, brings more spontaneity than Dayne Crist, but is handing him the job instead of making him compete for it wise? Competition tends to bring out the best in athletes. Not all of the hurdles to improving are personnelrelated. The quality of the streamlined Big 12 Conference enhances the difficulty of a rebuilding process because such a brutal schedule makes building confidence a stiff challenge. Nearly half of KU’s nine Big 12 games are against schools now ranked in the top 15 and two-thirds are against Top 25 teams: No. 7 Kansas State, No. 8 West Virginia, No. 12 Texas, No. 15 TCU, No. 16 Oklahoma, No. 25 Baylor. The three unranked Big 12 foes, Iowa State, Oklahoma State and Texas Tech, have a combined record of 8-1. Even if Weis and his staff continue to build on an encouraging recent recruiting run, this shapes up as a long, slow climb from the Big 12 basement.

KANSAS CITY KICKER RYAN SUCCOP (6) CELEBRATES HIS GAME-WINNING FIELD GOAL as New Orleans Saints cornerback Patrick Robinson (21) falls to the turf in overtime. The Chiefs won, 27-24, on Sunday in New Orleans.

Succop’s six (!) field goals lift K.C. NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Ryan Succop finished all the drives the Kansas City Chiefs’ offense couldn’t in their improbable comeback against the Saints. Succop kicked four of his club-record six field goals after the end of the third quarter and hit the game-winning 31-yarder with 6:27 left in overtime as the Chiefs rallied from an 18-point deficit in the second half to beat winless New Orleans, 2724, on Sunday. It is the largest lead Kansas City has overcome in franchise history.

Succop’s 43-yarder tied it with three seconds left in regulation after he converted from 34 and 38 yards earlier in the fourth. “The best part is our guys never gave up,” Succop said. “We kept fighting, it was a huge team win, and I’m just really excited to have had a part in it.” Jamaal Charles’ 91-yard touchdown run — the longest running play in Chiefs history, and the longest ever given up by the Saints — started Kansas City’s comeback. Then the Chiefs’ defense thwarted

a Saints scoring chance when Stanford Routt intercepted Drew Brees’ underthrown pass for Devery Henderson near the Kansas City goal line late in the third quarter. Brees, who was 20-of-36 for 240 yards and three TDs — never had another completion after that, and only attempted six passes because the Saints also never got another first down while statistically going backward — for minus-16 yards — through the fourth quarter and overtime. Charles, who finished with 233 yards rushing and 55 yards

receiving, scored the only touchdown the Chiefs (1-2) needed. The rest of the scoring came on field goals, as well as a safety on Justin Houston’s third sack of the game. “This team needed a win, and a win like that really helped out in particular,” Chiefs coach Romeo Crennel said. “There were a lot of doubts about what we could do and they showed a lot of character.” The Saints (0-3) remain winless since head coach Sean Please see CHIEFS, page 3B

Self fired up for dreaded Boot Camp By Gary Bedore gbedore@ljworld.com

Bill Self views his 10th Kansas University basketball Boot Camp as one of the most important in his decade at KU. “I am real excited for this one, maybe more than the others because I’ve got nine guys who have never been through anything like this,” Self, KU’s coach, said of

newcomers Rio Adams, Perry Ellis, Landen Lucas, Evan Manning, Ben McLemore, Zach Peters, Tyler Self, Jamari Traylor and Andrew White III. “If they look at it as punishment, it’ll be hard for them. If they look at it as an opportunity to get in great shape and a team-bonding experience, they’ll end up being very proud of themselves after they complete it.”

McLemore and Traylor were on campus for the 2011 Boot Camp, but couldn’t compete as they awaited word on their eligibility from the NCAA. They, of course, are eligible this year and will be in KU’s practice facility at 6 a.m. today for the first of 10 up-before-the-crack-ofdawn conditioning drills. “We’ll get through it. We

always do. I’m looking forWe’ll get ward to it,” Self said. He could only laugh when through it. asked if he considered scrap- We always ping Boot Camp this year, considering his Jayhawks do.

Jayhawks get dose of ‘reality’ ————

Weis has whole team watch fourth-quarter collapse together By Matt Tait mtait@ljworld.com

Mike Yoder/Journal-World Photo

KANSAS QUARTERBACK DAYNE CRIST, LEFT, IS PRESSURED by Northern Illinois’ Ken Bishop late in KU’s 30-23 loss to NIU on Saturday in DeKalb, Ill.

Every Sunday, win or lose, Kansas University’s football team gets together to watch film and break down what went right and what went wrong the day before. This Sunday, the review session took on a little different form. “Today, we watched the fourth quarter,” KU coach Charlie Weis said. “The entire team watched the entire fourth quarter, from (Tyler) Patmon’s interception right to the end of the game; consecutive plays, so they see how you go from a two-score lead to losing the game.” That’s exactly what happened Saturday, when Pat-

mon’s interception return for a touchdown gave the Jayhawks a 23-13 lead at Northern Illinois with 14:33 to play. Exactly 10 minutes later, the Jayhawks (1-3) trailed, 3023, and went on to lose their third straight game. Weis was asked Sunday night if his decision to make his players sit through the collapse collectively was the equivalent of some type of detention. “That wasn’t a punishment at all,” he said. “That was reality.” Watching game film, of course, is customary and is a regular part of every Sunday practice. But most weeks, the film is reviewed by position, with offensive players watching offensive tape and

defensive players watching defense. Weis changed it up this week to help emphasize that the blame for the Jayhawks’ early-season struggles extends to everyone in the locker room. Doing so, he hoped, would continue to push the message that they’re all in this together. “The whole team could hear the coaching points for every position,” Weis said. “The defense could hear me talk to the quarterback. The offense could hear (defensive coordinator Dave) Campo talk to the secondary. Everyone could hear all the assistant coaches giving the coaching points so the team knows the offense could’ve won the Please see FOOTBALL, page 3B

Hamlin backs up smack at N.H. LOUDON, N.H. (AP) — Denny Hamlin stepped out of his car, pointed into the air and took a mighty swing of an invisible baseball bat. Like Babe Ruth did before him (or so the legend goes), Hamlin had called his shot. The top winner in NASCAR’s regular season earned his series-leading fifth victory of the year Sunday, backing up a tweet of “We will win� with Hamlin a mistake-free and dominating run at New Hampshire Motor Speedway in the second event of the Chase for the Sprint Cup. “You don’t want to sound too cocky, but I knew what we were

capable of,� said Hamlin, who was 32nd in qualifying after his crew put the wrong pressure in his tires. “I know we made a couple of big mistakes, but I said we were fast enough to make it up and we did.� It was the 100th career victory for team owner Joe Gibbs, who also won three Super Bowls as the coach of the Washington Redskins. And it came with a little teamwork, too, when Kyle Busch slowed down to help suck some debris off the front of Hamlin’s car and propel him to victory. “As fast as he was, he could have gone to the back of any car and pulled that off,� said Jimmie Johnson, who finished second and took over the Chase lead. “I kind of thought he would be the guy to beat, and he certainly was. We are second-best.�

Ducks, Wildcats move up in AP poll

Johnson will head into Dover, Del., one of his top tracks, one point ahead of Chicago winner Brad Keselowski, who was sixth Sunday. Jeff Gordon, who was the last man to qualify for the Chase, was third. “We had a great race car,� said Johnson, a five-time NASCAR season champion, “just not an amazing car like the No. 11 did here today.� Hamlin improved to third in the Chase, seven points behind Johnson, despite a tumultuous week that began with him running out of gas in Chicago and continued when his crew used race pressure instead of qualifying pressure in his tires on Friday.

him scurrying to get back to the front of the field. But he was confident enough on this track, where now he has five top five finishes in his last seven races, that he told a group of U.S. National Guardsmen during a publicity trip to New Hampshire earlier this month that would be back to share a few beers in victory lane. And despite finishing 16th in Chicago, Hamlin tweeted: “This is week 1 of 10. We will win next week.� Hamlin had the fastest car in both practices, but the mistake in qualifying had him starting near the back of the field. Hamlin said he came to the track on Sunday with the goal of getting into the top 10 by the 100th lap. He did better than that, taking the lead on the 94th lap and holding it for 193 laps in all.

Oregon was overwhelming and now the Ducks are No. 2 in the AP Top 25, jumping LSU to get in line behind No. 1 Alabama. And No. 4 Florida State (1,340 points) is right behind the thirdranked Tigers (1,346). A case could be made for all three as the second-best team in the country and the jockeying could continue for a while. A quick recap: While LSU was slogging through a 12-10 victory at Auburn, Florida State was racing away from Clemson, 4937 on Saturday night. Oregon was last up and Ducks were at their breath-taking best against Arizona, beating the Wildcats 49-0 at Autzen Stadium. The Wildcats came into the game unbeaten and ranked No. 22. The voters in the media poll were swayed. Oregon received 1,414 points. Less than a month into the season, voters are trying to sort through evidence when determining the best teams. While most have played four games, some three, none have played that many truly meaningful games.

Moving Up Bill Snyder is up to big things again in the Little Apple. No. 7 Kansas State moved up eight spots after beating Oklahoma 2419 in Norman on Saturday night. The architect of the Miracle in Manhattan has a Top-10 team for the first time since September 2003, led by tough-running quarterback Collin Klein. Moving Down While Snyder and the Wildcats celebrated, Bob Stoops and the Sooners were sent tumbling in the rankings and left to explain another home loss. Oklahoma went from No. 6 to No. 16 after falling to Kansas State at Owen Field, a place where the Sooners are 78-4 under Stoops, but have now lost games the past two seasons when they were ranked in the top 10. In And Out No. 18 Oregon State, Rutgers and Baylor made their first appearances of the season in the Top 25 after winning on the road. Oregon State went into UCLA and knocked off the Bruins 27-20 behind Sean Mannion’s career-high 379 yards and two touchdowns. The loss dropped UCLA out of the rankings, somewhat surprisingly. Along with UCLA, Michigan and Arizona exited the poll. From The Archives Another first for the SEC. The best football conference in the country became the first to have four of the top six teams in the AP rankings with No. 1 Alabama, No. 3 LSU, No. 5 Georgia and No. 6 South Carolina.

BRANDT SNEDEKER REACTS AFTER SINKING HIS PUTT on the 18th hole to win the Tour Championship and the FedEx Cup on Sunday in Atlanta.

Snedeker captures FedEx Cup with Tour title ATLANTA — Brandt Snedeker played the biggest round of his career for the biggest payoff in golf. Needing to win the Tour Championship on Sunday to beat out Rory McIlroy for the FedEx Cup, Snedeker came up with three big birdies on the back nine at East Lake to take all the drama out the final day that had been loaded with possibilities. Snedeker hit his final tee shot into the grandstand left the 18th green and made bogey. By then, it didn’t matter. So dominant was his performance that he was the only player from the last five groups who managed to break par, closing with a 2-under 68. Along the way, he answered any questions about why Davis Love III made him a captain’s pick for the Ryder Cup next week at Medinah. Snedeker won by three shots over Justin Rose (71) in the Tour Championship, his second title of the year, and collected $1.44 million. And he won the $10 million bonus for capturing the FedEx Cup, which comes with a five-year exemption on the PGA Tour. McIlroy and Tiger Woods, both of whom could have won the FedEx Cup with a victory Sunday, faded early and were never a factor. Snedeker joins Woods (twice), Vijay Singh, Jim Furyk and Bill Haas as winners of the FedEx Cup in its six-year history. McIlroy had won the last two playoff events and three of his last four tournaments dating to his eight-shot win in the PGA Championship. He still is virtually a lock to be voted PGA Tour player of the year, but he had to settle for second place in the FedEx Cup. Snedeker finished at 10-under 270 and will move into the top 10 in the world ranking for the first time. Snedeker, McIlroy and Woods were separated by four shots going into the final round.

Old Dominion QB breaks record Taylor Heinicke topped himself. The quarterback at Old Dominion threw seven touchdown passes last week in a blowout victory against Campbell, and then made that look like nothing special in an encore performance to be talked about for a long time on Saturday. He smashed NCAA Division I records by throwing for 730 yards, completing 55 of 79 attempts without being intercepted and led the Monarchs (4-0) back from a 23-point, thirdquarter deficit to a 64-61 victory against New Hampshire.

SCOREBOARD

Chiefs CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1B

Payton was suspended for the season in connection with the NFL’s bounty investigation. The Chiefs found a way to win after their sack of Brees for a safety got them the ball, down 24-21, with 5:33 to go. Matt Cassel’s spinning scramble and 11-yard pass across the field to Jon Baldwin on third-and-10 extended the game-tying drive, as did Cassel’s completion to Dwayne Bowe on fourth-and-five. In one of several lowlights for the crew of replacement officials working the game, New Orleans was briefly ruled the winner on the field in overtime when running back Shaun Draughn lost the ball stretching for a first down and safety Roman Harper picked up the ball and ran to the end zone. The fumble was overturned on video review, but the spot came up a halfyard short of a first down. Charles easily converted a fourth-down run to extend the winning drive. “We knew coming in that we could run against this defense,” Charles said. “It was an opportunity we had to take advantage of.”

IN THIS FIVE-FRAME MULTIPLE EXPOSURE, CLEVELAND RELIEF PITCHER VINNIE PESTANO THROWS during the ninth inning against Kansas City. The Indians won, 15-4, Sunday in Kansas City, Mo.

Indians thump K.C. ————

Santana’s five RBIs sink Royals, 15-4 KANSAS CITY, MO. (AP) — While Cleveland Indians slugger Carlos Santana is finishing strong, the Kansas City Royals will again be watching the playoffs. Santana hit two homers and drove in five runs as the Indians routed Kansas City 15-4 Sunday in their highest-scoring game of the season. Santana connected for a two-run shot in the sixth inning off Jake Odorizzi, who lost in his majorleague debut. Santana added his team-leading 18th homer, a three-run drive during a seven-run ninth. “Carlos had a great day,” Indians manager Manny Acta said. “That two-run homer was huge. It gave us the lead. I’m happy for the day he had. For a moment there, I was thinking we weren’t going to have one guy with 75 RBIs on the whole team. He did it, and it looks like (Jason) Kipnis with 70 might able to do that, too.” Santana, who has 13 home runs and 45 RBIs in 65 games since July 15, matched his career high with five RBIs. It was his third career multihomer game. “It was a very good day for me and the pitchers,” Santana said. “The key for us is to finish strong.” The loss officially eliminated the Royals from playoff contention and assured them of another losing record. Kansas City has not made the postseason since winning the 1985 World Series, the longest

Boot Camp, it’d be hard to impress more than what Tyrel Reed did, and also Travis Releford, I’d say, has been excellent so far,” Self said. Releford, a fifth-year senior out of Kansas City, Mo., was asked who stood out to him in the past. “All of us,” he said. “What do you mean? “Tyrel ... he wouldn’t lose any races. If you want to say he was the star of that, yes, Tyrel was,” Releford added of the 2011 KU graduate. “Since I’ve been here, he’s been the only one who has completely dominated.” Boot Camp consists of sprints, defensive slides and backboard touches —

And that’s what you want them to be. You want them to be quiet. That’s what they were. They reacted the way you want the team to react.” Despite his team’s disappointment, Weis did not change anything about his mental approach Sunday. “I was not easy on them,” he said. “It was not a come-in-and-everything-is-beautiful (day). That’s not my way.”

Cleveland added five runs in the seventh and pulled away in the ninth. The Indians spoiled the day for Odorizzi (0-1), one of four players acquired in the 2010 trade for Zack Greinke.

all sorts of running, with no basketballs in sight. In the past, a player or two has lost his breakfast at Boot Camp, which will run from 6 a.m. to just after 7 Monday through Friday this week and next. “I’ve never puked,” Releford said. “There have been a few in the past, but I can’t remember. I think the last time was early-on my freshman year. The past few years, I don’t think anybody has ever puked.” Self gave a final bit of advice for his veterans and newcomers alike. “All it is, is convince your body you can do things you didn’t think you could do,” he stated.

Roberson has six finalists: Tyler Roberson, a 6-foot-8 senior small forward from Roselle (N.J.) Catholic who is ranked No. 29 nationally by Rivals. com, has cut his list of prospective colleges to six: KU, Kentucky, SMU, Rutgers, Syracuse, and Villanova. “Coach Self showed me a lot of highlights of Marcus Morris,” Roberson told jayhawkslant. com, asked about last Thursday’s in-home visit. “He said that I’d be doing something similar to what Marcus was doing on offense. I watched Marcus when Kansas was on TV, and I think there are some Sylvania 300 Sunday similarities.” At New Hampshire Motor Speedway

same alignment twice on the right side,” Weis said. “They really put the (KU) right guard and the right tackle a little bit on an island. Now, it shouldn’t have been that difficult for us to pick up. It shouldn’t have happened the first time.” After staying clean for most of the first three quarters, KU quarterback Dayne Crist was sacked three times in the fourth quarter and hurried at least twice that many. “They mixed it up,” Crist said of NIU’s pass rush. “They brought a little bit more pressure the second half. They weren’t a heavy blitz team on the surface, but they definitely turned it up in the second half and were pretty disruptive.”

Injury update Weis said the prognosis for injured running back Taylor Cox looked better than he thought it would on Sunday. Cox, a junior who left Saturday’s loss because of an injury after just three carries, appeared to have trainers looking at the back of his right leg on the sideline. Cox remained in uniform and on the bench throughout the game but did not return to the field. “I expected him to be listed as doubtful or out, and he wasn’t listed as doubtful or out,” Weis said. “With it being a bye week, they thought he had a chance of playing in the next game.” KU is off this week and will play Oct. 6 at Kansas State.

NFL, officials’ union talk NEW YORK (AP) — The NFL and the officials’ union were talking again. Two people familiar with the talks say that the NFL and the locked out officials’ union met Sunday. It was uncertain whether progress was made in an attempt to reach a new collective-bargaining agreement or when further negotiations would take place. The two people spoke to the Associated Press on the condition of anonymity because the talks are not being made public. The NFL locked out the officials in June after their contract expired. The league has been using replacement officials, and through three weeks of the regular season there has been much criticism over the way some games are being handled. Earlier Sunday, the NFL players’ union sent an open letter to team owners calling for an end to the lockout.

On Sunday, there were more suspect calls during several games. Replacement officials admitted making two mistakes in Minnesota’s victory over San Francisco, while a few other games included questionable calls that could have affected the outcomes. Referee Ken Roan said he twice granted 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh video challenges after Harbaugh called timeout in the fourth quarter. Neither challenge should have been allowed once Harbaugh asked for time. “What I told him was, ‘Well you challenged it not knowing what the result of the play was going to be,’” Roan said. “So I granted him the challenge and we went and looked at it. That was wrong. I should not have.” Both mistakes happened in the span of six plays in Minnesota’s 24-13 upset of the 49ers.

Dear Annie: I have been with my boyfriend, “Tom,” for more than a year. We love each other very much. However, early in our relationship, I was coming out of a rough breakup with my ex. I made a huge mistake thinking I could keep the ex as a friend. We met for dinner and ended up kissing. I confessed to Tom, who briefly broke things off. He eventually took me back, and I haven’t spoken to my ex since. The problem is, Tom’s sister and mother have not been so forgiving. His sister ignores or insults me when I come to their house. Tom’s mother does the same, although only when his sister is around. At first I accepted it because I deserved it. But it’s been nearly a year, and things have only gotten worse. I have apolo-

gized repeatedly, to no avail. Tom’s best friend recently moved in with him, and now the guy’s girlfriend is at Tom’s house a lot. We used to be on good terms, but they have poisoned her against me. Tom doesn’t want to be involved and gets defensive when I tell him how disrespectful his sister is toward me. He says she’s just socially inept, which could be true, but still. I don’t know how much longer I can take such treatment, and frankly,

‘Partners’ feels dated Two well-worn promotional hooks for new shows generally indicate weakness. One is, “From the makers of (fill in the name of the popular show) ...” The second has writers and creators say, “This is based on my real life.” The new sitcom “Partners” (7:30 p.m., CBS) is guilty on both counts. ‘‘Partners” mines comedy from the “bromance” between a straight architect, Joe (David Krumholtz), and his gay business partner, Louis (Michael Urie). They’ve been pals since they were kids and can practically finish each other’s sentences, even if Louis’ sentences tend toward the flamboyant, self-centered and stereotypical. The show is based on the professional partnership and friendship of David Kohan and Max Mutchnick, creators of “Will & Grace.” Joe is a nervous type, and Louis is a slightly toned-down version of Jack McFarland (Sean Hayes) from “Will & Grace.” Only he’s not as quick, biting or charming as Jack was — way back in 1998. Sophia Bush plays Ali, Joe’s waytoo-beautiful girlfriend, and Brandon Routh is Wyatt, Louis’ simple but understanding boyfriend. Neither love interest is exactly sidesplitting, so it’s safe to say that this “Will & Will” will not develop a comic quartet like Will, Grace, Jack and Karen. Wyatt is a male nurse from a WASP background, but Louis tells everyone he’s dating a Jewish doctor. Joe and Louis also camouflage some of their sexual innuendo with Yiddish-isms. Between the doctor jokes and grandmotherly dialect, some of the dialogue seems as dated as the routines Eddie Cantor’s character performs on “Boardwalk Empire.” Bottom line: “Partners” breaks no new ground and is only sporadically funny.

JACQUELINE BIGAR’S STARS

For Monday, Sept. 24, 2012: This year tension builds with your professional and community activities. Do you have too much on your plate? You might want to cut back or delegate some of your responsibilities to others, even if you don’t want to. If you are single, your playfulness cannot help but come out when interacting with others. If you are attached, the two of you feel strongly about your personal and domestic life. 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)  When you hit an obstacle, you have no choice but to leap over it. You might try other approaches at first, only to discover that nothing else really works. Tonight: Where your friends are. Taurus (April 20-May 20)  You will want to understand what is going on around you. The only way to find answers is to detach and become less invested in what goes down. Tonight: Nap, then decide. Gemini (May 21-June 20)  Deal with a parent, partner or associate directly. You will see this conversation as a shortcut, as you will eliminate a problem. Tonight: Try to think outside the box. Cancer (June 21-July 22)  Others seek you out. On some level, you might feel as if you are in the doldrums. Tonight: Dinner with a favorite person. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)  You have a lot to get done, and you will do just that if you can just focus. Do not approach others negatively. Tonight: Take the most sociable invitation.

jacquelinebigar.com

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)  Stay even when dealing with someone in your day-to-day life. Several people could be bouncing off the walls. Tonight: Relax; put your feet up. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)  Your mind keeps drifting toward a family matter, domestic issue or a property or real-estate investment. It would be better to deal with it now. Tonight: Kick up your heels as soon as you can. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)  Keep communication flowing, and understand that some topics are too taboo. If a barrier emerges, you could have more problems with opening up a situation. Tonight: Try to make it early. Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)  Be aware of upcoming expenditures. You could have difficulty with a certain situation or friendship that seems to hold you back. Tonight: Catch up on someone’s news. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)  You might feel as though you are totally in the moment. A male or assertive friend pushes you in a new direction. Tonight: Others seek you out. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)  A lack of communication could make you feel uncomfortable. You might need to break the ice. Tonight: Take a relaxing stroll. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)  Zero in on what is important to you. Understand that someone you care about could hold information back or even refuse to converse at all. Tonight: Don’t push. It is only Monday. — The astrological forecast should be read for entertainment only.

Decor dreams take flight when dollhouse decorating BY LAURA JOFRE, ASSOCIATED PRESS

INSPIRATION Here are a few blogs and websites to inspire ideas:

I

n a kids’ entertainment world of expensive game systems and disposable plastic toys, there is an alternative: Make something. Play with it. The do-it-yourself trend, which embraces projects in electronics, engineering and crafts, dovetails nicely with the perennially popular, mainly girl-driven activity of decorating. An abundance of room-decorating games appears online; girlsgogames.com has at least 30 games in which a bare space — a witch’s house, say, or a Chinese palace or a baby nursery — can be revamped. Making or redecorating an actual dollhouse in the real, not virtual, world isn’t as easy as clicking on colors and furniture; it takes time, creativity, and patience. The reward? It actually exists. My girls’ dollhouse, a $5 yard sale find, has four tall rooms and an attic. Currently, the store-bought Barbie furniture mingles with repainted wooden furniture and sits on rugs made from origami paper and fabric scraps. The walls are covered with contact paper or scrapbook paper or, in one case, white printer paper. That wall is a “doodle wall,” my 8-year-old recently proclaimed, demonstrating its use. “I wish I lived in this house,” she added. The house has fulfilled many fantasies: It has contained traditional bedrooms and living rooms, boutiques and cafes, playgrounds and kennels, depending on the current interest of the decorator. We sit down with whatever paper and fabric we have around, occasionally raiding the magazine rack or the bag of outgrown clothing. I can participate without directing; I just take a room. I have my own bathroom renovation dreams. Angela Holton of Larchmont, N.Y., also got a dollhouse started and watched her daughter run with it. They wanted a bed; she and her 5-year-old made one from some cardboard packing material. A scrap of fabric became a blanket; finally they needed a pillow and thought of cotton balls. Each idea led to the next. “I was teaching my kids to look at objects and think of different ways they can be used,” says Holton. “It was like found art.”

LAURA JOFRE’S DAUGHTER STANDS with her dollhouse, currently an eclectic collection of Barbie furniture, painted wood furniture, fabric floors and “doodle wall” in this undated image. Her daughter quickly began spotting objects around the house that could be repurposed. Making furniture and decorating rooms can be a “green” project. FamilyFun magazine regularly shows easy-to-make dollhouses out of recycled boxes and furniture out of egg cartons. Decorating a dollhouse “helps kids to be creative, resourceful and make things with their hands, which are skills that are so important in this digital era especially,” says FamilyFun Editor-in-Chief Ann Hallock. Her 8-year-old daughter made a pinebranch Christmas tree for the dollhouse, complete with ornaments and tiny presents. “She did it all herself, and couldn’t have been prouder of how it came out.” Sometimes the results are not as pleasing: There was some ill-fated shelving in our dollhouse, made from folded printer paper and tape. It never stayed up or held anything. Eventually, it was scrapped for two drawers from a kid’s cardboard jewelry box that were emptied and stacked on their sides. That creative process “allows children to develop skills involving math, problem

solving and fine motor development,” says Laura Sedlock, educational director at a Manhattan preschool. And they do so “in a context that is creative, meaningful and integrally related to play — elements that are increasingly absent from structured academic environments.” Adds FamilyFun’s Hallock: “With school art programs being cut and less time in the curriculum for open-ended thinking, many moms are especially looking for projects and ideas that can help encourage these skills at home. So anytime we run a project that makes it easy for kids to be creative and make things with their hands, we get a big response.” Witness the magazine’s popular dollhouse-decorating contest. Entries have included a pool table with balls, a baby nursery and a haunted dollhouse. Also notable were the low-tech representations of hightech accessories: miniature laptops, televisions, “even a tiny iPod on the nightstand to listen to music at night,” Hallock said. A simple wiring kit purchased online or at a craft shop can help draw a dollhouseaverse kid into the family project, or introduce circuitry in a context where kids can see real possibilities. Introducing electronics to girls was the aim of “Roominate,” a product created by three women who majored in math, engineering and science. They wanted to inspire girls in technology, and came up with a dollhouse kit that includes the circuitry to wire the room, so lamps can light.

LIBERTY HALL’S MAN BEHIND THE CURTAIN BY ADAM STRUNK

C

oncerts are great fun. You buy your tickets, you listen, you leave. If the show was awesome, the band gets credit. But behind many successful concerts are great venues and behind these venues are people like Rob Fitzgerald. Fitzgerald is the event manager and technical director for Liberty Hall, 644 Mass. Simplified, he schedules and manages the 100 or so events the venue holds each year. “It’s not a super-secret fantastic job where we are making big piles of money or anything, but it’s a good place to come to, you know?” he said. “It’s not a regular office job. At the end of the day, everything we do is a positive thing, you know? It’s entertainment. We like to entertain and entertain everybody.” While part of his job involves being on hand for all of the concerts and shows, managing and technical directing is no walk in the park. He said it’s mostly about attention to detail. “It is an offbeat occupation,” Fitzgerald said “Within those two little headings there’s about 2 million other tasks.” Fitzgerald opens the doors before the concert, runs the lighting during the concert and takes out the trash when everyone goes home. He’s a hands-on boss. “I like to be involved. I take tickets when someone needs help. I don’t mind picking up a broom and sweeping up afterwards. We pride ourselves on being clean and helpful and nice all the time. It doesn’t clean itself.” Talking with Fitzgerald, it’s easy to forget how stressful such a complicated job can be. He’s laid back, laughs constantly and seems closer to the guy outside waiting in line than the man running the place. He takes five minutes to figure out an aspect of his job he finds difficult: the fast pace. “If you get out of a concert at 11 o’clock, you get out of the show you get to run out for a cocktail. I don’t,” he said. “But is that a difficult part of the job? Well, get over it.” It’s easy for Fitzgerald to brush off the hard parts because to him, his job is more of a love song to Liberty Hall than a way to pay the rent. “This joint has always had a special place in my heart,” he said. “My first day of college I came here to see Son

ROB FITZGERALD is the man behind plenty of the magic for live events at Liberty Hall, 644 Mass. Seals Blues Band, and that was 1980 when I was 18 years old. By following my passion of being involved in music and theater, I wound up manager of this great joint that I fell in love with my first day of college.” Fitzgerald and Liberty Hall have a long history together. He helped remodel the place in 1984. He later got a job working lighting in 1998. Fitzgerald kept moving his way up until he took his current position. While he enjoys what he does, he said it’s working the lighting for events that really keeps him coming back. “I got to light Eminem to Joan Baez to Patti Smith to Nickel Creek. For me that’s been the kind of cool part, the little secret. I’m known as the guy who’s in charge of Liberty Hall, but I really would like to be known as the light man at Liberty Hall because that’s my passion.” Working at a place that has seen numerous concerts,

weddings and events over his 25 or so years, Fitzgerald has witnessed some crazy stuff. And while he did not want anything negative he’s seen to show up in print, he did share one of his favorite experiences. “One of the things I think about is doing the lights for Joan Baez and she sang that song ‘Joe Hill,’ and I’m at work and I’m in the middle of the theater and I’m a grown man, and I got tears going down. You’re a grown man, you’re supposed to be hard and at the light board. I have been moved to tears here so many times.” Besides amazing concerts and running lights, Fitzgerald is happiest when Liberty Hall is full and running like a well-oiled machine. “I love it when it’s bursting out the seams with people and the band’s playing way too loud,” he said. “It’s a positive place and it’s positively seen, and we want to project that joy.”

“I love it when it’s bursting out the seams with people and the band’s playing way too loud. It’s a positive place and it’s positively seen, and we want to project that joy.” — Rob Fitzgerald

On the set of ‘Jayhawkers’ BY PHIL WILKE

O

h thank you, thank you. I never expected to win an Oscar in just my first movie. I want to thank the members of the Academy, but there are so many other people to thank. Turns out, I was ready for my close-up. I was lucky enough to be cast in a minor, minor, minor part for the upcoming film “Jayhawkers.” My character is “Theater Manager,” and the only instruction I was given before I arrived on the set was “Your character is trying to deter people from entering a theater.”

Grant Fitch Photos

PHIL WILKE

At the end of the day, the producer and director thanked the actors, and a crew member passed out envelopes with the day’s pay. This was a profound surprise to me; I was ready to pay them for the privilege of being in the movie. In fact, I hoped they’d take credit cards. As simple as those directions sound, I’ve rarely been able to deter people from doing anything. My kids have run roughshod over my directions for years. Hell, half the time I can’t even deter myself from doing things I shouldn’t. But I was willing to say any lines and do anything the director told me to do in order to accomplish my character’s one goal: deter people from entering a theater.

WILT CHAMBERLAIN (JUSTIN WESLEY), CENTER, and his date (Sara Kennedy) are told they must move to the balcony by a movie theater usher (Aubry Peters) in a scene from “Jayhawkers.” First I want to thank my parents, who always gave me their spare change so that I could walk for miles and miles to see the Saturday matinee. I hope my brother and sister forgive me for ignoring them while I followed my muse into the cinema. I was to arrive on set in my audition costume: slicked-down hair, short-sleeve white shirt and a bow tie. My first panic session of the day began in front of the mirror while trying to tie my bow tie. I was able to tie it for the audition only by watching YouTube videos. Their instructions worked relatively well then; they were no help this time. During 20 minutes of inept practice, I accomplished only three things: 1) strangling myself, 2) inventing several knots previously unknown to mankind and 3) not tying my bow tie. I left for the set, Liberty Memorial Central Middle School, with the untied bow tie draped unceremoniously around my neck. That’s when the first miracle happened: my wife called. She met me at the school and tied it for me. With bow properly tied, I reported to the set on time.

They filmed some scenes that morning and were setting up for the afternoon shots, including mine. Central’s auditorium was transformed into a 1955 movie theater. A fog machine put a haze in the air. Extras in period dress were seated around the central point of action. An actor playing an usher was dressed in full maroon-suit-and-gold-buttons bellhop uniform. Wilt Chamberlain was due anytime. Justin Wesley, the Kansas University basketball team sophomore who plays The Big Dipper, had a tight schedule that day and was only available for 90 minutes, so all the logistics revolved around that window. It was time to rehearse. I want to thank the director of “Jayhawkers” for envisioning my potential and casting me in such a pivotal role. Really, if you think about it, mine was the THE pivotal role. Without those three lines of dialogue, the movie just falls apart. Director Kevin Willmott was improvising the scene, the blocking, the dialogue,

as he went along. I get the feeling he’s a jazz fan because he was improvising on set the way a jazz musician would on stage. He knew what the scene was supposed to look like, he knew the script. But he was constantly experimenting, changing, adding and listening. When it was time for the other members of the crew — cameramen, lighting techs, assistant directors, sound mixers, grips, gaffes, makeup and art directors — to take their solos, he stood back and watched and listened. Then with all the solos finished, it was time for the melody to come back together and for the first assistant director to yell “action.” In my scene, Wilt is told by the theater usher that he and his date, a white girl, will need to sit in the balcony. Seeing all the empty seats, Wilt encourages black families in the balcony to come downstairs. As those families come down the aisle, I’m supposed to deter them. Kevin diagramed the action, gave our characters their backstory and motivation, and had us rehearse several times. With each run, he added a line of dialogue, made a minor change to the place-

ment of a character, told a few extras to add some reaction to the events unfolding in front of them, and had Justin unfurl all 6-foot-9-inches of him from a tiny theater seat over and over and over again. To add to his already imposing height, they had him sit and stand on boxes to match Wilt’s 7-foot-1-inch frame. We did three takes, with each having a subtle change. It was fascinating to be a part of and, for a lifelong movie fan, it was a glimpse backstage that I’ve always dreamed about. That’s when the second miracle happened: the director and producer told me I did a good job. I want to thank all the little people on the set. Even when I suggested sensible ways that they could do their jobs better, they still treated me with the respect accorded a star. Before the orchestra plays me off, I just want to say, again, thanks for recognizing my brilliance. To say that my character was supposed to be surly is an understatement. To say that he was racist would be a stretch. I think he just didn’t like someone making trouble in his theater. His authority — both seating and moral — is being

{5

usurped by a young, impertinent, supremely self-confident black man. After Wilt left, Kevin shot crowd reactions, transition shots, close-ups of extras, and then he thought of something for me to do. We blocked a scene where the theater manager looks at Wilt, now played by the empty chair where he used to sit, gives him a dirty look, walks up the aisle in disgust and frustration and “has a moment” with the usher. I was shot in profile, close-up, by a hand-held camera. I’m hoping against hope that my scenes don’t end up on the cutting room floor. At the end of the day, the producer and director thanked the actors, and a crew member passed out envelopes with the day’s pay. This was a profound surprise to me; I was ready to pay them for the privilege of being in the movie. In fact, I hoped they’d take credit cards. When people talk about the “greatest day of their life,” they mention weddings, kids being born, graduations, promotions. Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, whatever, those are all OK. I WAS IN A MOVIE. Now that’s a great day. — Phil Wilke is a writer and public radio fundraiser in Lawrence.

Guide daughter to self-awareness of stress

Double TAKE

Dear Dr. Wes and Katie: My daughter is starting her junior year at an outof-state college. I have encouraged her to seek counseling for anxiety at her school, but she is somewhat resistant to that. How can I persuade her that this is a good idea when she’s not living with me? Katie: A therapist can only give your daughter as much aid as she’s willing to receive. Moreover, counseling doesn’t do much good if the patient resents being “forced” to undergo treatment through a sense of obligation, especially if that patient is a college student flexing her independence. To benefit from counseling, your daughter must recognize for herself why she is there and what she hopes to accomplish. You might have a clear idea from a parental perspective of what is best for her, but perhaps she thinks she can manage her anxiety on her own. It is possible that she’s struggling to admit to herself or others that she needs help. Unfortunately, it’s not uncommon for young people to attach a social stigma to therapy. Remind her that there’s no shame in seeking counseling; the shame lies in refusing help when it’s needed. As a fellow anxiety-sufferer, I can say firsthand that an anxious student’s first defense is often denial. We bury internal problems beneath external pursuits, like obsessive studying. Only by unearthing those anxieties will your daughter realize that she would be happier if she learned to address them directly — and if the solution is professional help, you can discuss that option when it’s a matter of suggestion instead of persuasion. Though the distance between you and your daughter may be trying, there are strategies you can pursue over the phone to guide her toward self-awareness. My mother often asks me a seemingly simple question

DR. WES CRENSHAW AND KATIE GUYOT to put my thoughts in perspective: “Can you name three good things about today?” That’s a surprisingly difficult answer if you’ve spent the morning worrying about the afternoon. If your daughter can’t brainstorm her list without choking up, it might be a good opportunity to bring up counseling. There is, of course, no replacement for the knowing ear of a loving parent. You’ll always be your daughter’s first anxiety hotline — but with the help of a professional, she may find herself reaching for that hotline less and less. Dr. Wes: Hard to improve on Katie’s advice, except to say that young adults are rarely as independent as she suggests. They are instead simply free. If your daughter is financially connected to you, she’s part of something larger than herself — a family system. You don’t tell us how impaired she is by her anxiety, but if it’s threatening her matriculation through college or her ability to work after graduation, she has an obligation to you to seek help, without which she may not be able to move on to

the next step in life. If she’s generally doing fine and you just wish she’d feel better and less stressed, then Katie is right, that’s beyond your scope of influence. While I agree there may still be a little stigma attached to therapy, I more often find that young adults not only like seeing a therapist, but they speak highly of it and refer their friends. The problem is finding a good match between therapist and client. Research websites of therapists in your daughter’s college community to see who specializes in her age group, then contact them to see if one might fit with her personality and needs. Keep in mind that the attributes you seek in a therapist may differ substantially from what your daughter would like, so think about her and the kinds of people she’s attracted to. It’s especially important to look for someone who acts and communicates like a regular person, free of pomp and jargon. When young people go to therapy, they don’t really want to talk to a therapist. They want to talk to a PERSON who knows how to do therapy in a friendly, conversational tone. They also don’t like to sit quietly and be stared at. A good therapist for teens and young adults knows how to carry his or her end of the conversation. Find one of those, give her the name and tell her she only has to go once to see what she thinks. If the connection is good, she’ll be back. — Wes Crenshaw, Ph.D., ABPP, is author of “Dear Dr. Wes: Real Life Advice for Teens” and “Real Life Advice for Parents of Teens.” Learn about his new practice Family Psychological Services at dr-wes. com.

Let us count the ways: He holds the Guinness World Record for largest collection of pizza memorabilia; he has a caricature of himself, eating pizza, tattooed on his back with the phrase “Totally saucesome!”; and he is the driving force behind Pizza Brain, which he describes as the nation’s first pizza museum. The quirky but unassuming establishment that Dwyer just opened with three partners in Philadelphia is part art gallery, part eatery. It’s a place to enjoy a slice or two of artisan pie while gawking at pizzarelated photos, records, knickknacks and videos. “We thought it was a funny idea, and we started doing some research,” Dwyer said. “And when we discovered that nowhere on earth was there a physical place, a monument built to pizza, we said, ‘This is going to be huge.’” He was right: Hundreds of people turned out for the Sept. 7 grand opening of Pizza Brain, which occupies a pair of rowhouse storefronts in the city’s Fishtown neighborhood. One wall is covered with framed pizza-related photos and magazine covers; another boasts dozens of vinyl records, like the soundtrack to “Mystic Pizza” and a holiday album from Domino’s. Display boxes are scattered throughout the eclectic space — including built into the floor — to show off pizza-bearing figurines from Homer Simpson and Spider-Man to the Tasmanian Devil and Pillsbury Doughboy. A cluster of small TVs plays pizza-related shows, while a huge pizza mural surrounds the back patio. Dwyer, 28, said he had a nominal assemblage of mementoes a couple of years ago when friends decided to create an art exhibit called “Give Pizza Chance.” Reaction was so positive that he continued collecting, becoming the world-recorder holder with 561 items in July 2011. He now owns a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles “Pizza Drop” arcade game and Star Trek Enterprise pizza cutter. A few months later, Dwyer quit his supermarket job to work on Pizza Brain full time. He and his team bought the row-

BRIAN DWYER SERVES UP a customer’s order Sept. 12 at Pizza Brain in Philadelphia. Hundreds of people turned out for the grand opening of Pizza Brain this month in Philadelphia’s Fishtown neighborhood. It’s a restaurant where visitors can eat a slice or two of artisan pie while gawking at a pizza-related photos, records, knickknacks and videos.

houses and raised some dough online — more than $16,500 — through the crowdfunding website Kickstarter. Grassroots publicity and social media created major local buzz. Dwyer said he was caught completely off-guard by the overwhelming response. At the same time, he added that it’s not surprising so many people identify with pizza, which he calls “the great equalizer” and “the only food synonymous with the word ‘party’.” “I think that’s why pizza is so powerful — it’s inherently communal,” Dwyer said. “Pizza is one of the few things that everyone can agree on.” But only a sliver of the ever-growing memorabilia collection is on view. Dwyer values curation over quantity and plans to rotate exhibit items at Pizza Brain, noting the beauty of the project is that it’s not stagnant. “I think, at the end of the day, it’s this big art installation masquerading around as a pizza shop,” Dwyer said.

MAKE RENOVATION DREAMS REALITY BY SARA SHEPHERD

D

aydream away. Make a board on Pinterest. Talk about it. But at some point, you’re going to have to translate daydream to real-life plan if you want that kitchen remodel, bedroom spiff-up or sunroom addition to become a reality. Experts agree that forethought and planning are key to home-improvement projects that run smoothly and create results customers are excited about. Go! talked to three Lawrence renovation professionals to compile these tips to help solidify your vision, stay on budget and stay safe. Neil Gaskin is co-owner of Natural Breeze Professional Remodelers, which does mostly residential remodeling and repairs, with projects ranging from basic service calls to costly full-house renovations. Kathy Bechtel owns Color My World Painting and Countertop Resurfacing, which specializes in cosmetic upgrades to walls, cabinets and counters. Barry Walthall is the city’s building official.

is surface-level improvements. “If you like the layout of your kitchen and your cabinets are functional and in really good shape, there’s no point in ripping all that out,” Bechtel said, adding that the same goes for countertops. Done professionally, resurfacing can make a dated kitchen or bath look fresh, clean and contemporary, she said. Painting the walls is another surface-level solution for updating a space. “Color is the number one thing that will change the look of a room,” Bechtel said. KNOW YOUR LIMIT Depending on your comfort level with having part of your home temporarily out of commission, you may not want to tackle multiple rooms at once, Bechtel said. This also goes for knowing when to hire a contractor instead of doing it yourself. Even cosmetic jobs such as painting can be messy, time-consuming or at times require special tools and skills, Bechtel said. Don’t bite off more than you can chew.

KATHY BECHTEL, who owns Color My World Painting and Countertop Resurfacing of Lawrence, preps and paints a children’s room. The gray color came from a picture of the child’s baseball team because they wore gray pants.

Think about your space — what it is and what you want it to be. “The two questions that we ask the most are, ‘What do you like about your current space, and what do you want to change?’” Gaskin said. Bechtel encourages clients to watch home TV shows, surf the Web, look at magazines and cut out photos. Those creamy looking cabinets with crackly glaze you’ve had your eye on? “Everyone interprets that as something different,” Bechtel said. “I can’t see into their mind, so it’s very helpful if they’ve got pictures.” DON’T OVERLOOK THE SURFACE Sometimes, all you need to make a big impact

BEST OF

The budget window for any given project is broad, so it’s important to decide in advance what you want to spend. For example, Gaskin said his company has finished basements to the tune of $40 per square foot and $120 per square foot. He said some customers are reluctant to broach the budget subject — possibly out of fear of being taken advantage of — but that it’s critical to planning. “For us, it’s important to have an honest conversation about that somewhere in the beginning so we know what direction to guide somebody,” Gaskin said. Gaskin and Bechtel also suggest building in a cushion for unexpected costs (more on that later).

would not be licensed.”

Gaskin said even though customers rarely ask to see his company’s certificate of insurance, he encourages them to take a look. Proof that a contractor has a license to operate in the city, plus references, are other good things to ask for. Anyone doing contract work in Lawrence beyond cosmetic improvements must be licensed by the city, meaning they’ve demonstrated they have the proper certification, insurance and training for their respective areas of expertise, Walthall said. To verify whether a contractor has a license, call Lawrence’s Planning and Development Services Department at 832-7700. “The contractor that has insurance and is licensed is much more likely to be capable of performing the work and less likely to encounter problems,” Walthall said. “The unlicensed contractor? There’s probably some reason they

STICK TO THE BUDGET (THIS IS WHERE THAT CUSHION COMES IN) Gaskin cited two major categories that push project over budget once they’ve been started. First, unforeseen circumstances. Especially with old houses, some things are impossible to know until the sledgehammers dig in. Gaskin recalled a kitchen remodel in an old Lawrence home where crews discovered the walls were filled with brick and very old wiring. Before getting to the planned renovation, they had to remove all that brick and rewire. “You just don’t know until you open up the walls,” he said, noting that he tries to discuss potential problems in advance. “I call it my Superman clause, where I don’t have X-ray vision.” Second, changes. Gaskin encourages customers to pick out every-

thing they can — flooring, cabinets, plumbing fixtures, you name it — before work begins. Not only does this step firm up the budget, because those items can vary widely in price, it keeps the project running efficiently because the contractor doesn’t have to wait on decisions to be made or products to be ordered. KEEP THE PEACE Before breaking ground, ensure everyone with a hand in planning and paying for the project — often husbands and wives — is in agreement. “Get on the same page as early as possible,” Gaskin said. “We don’t necessarily like to, but we find ourselves playing marriage counselor a little too often. And that’s not what I’m good at.” — Features reporter Sara Shepherd can be reached at 832-7187. Follow her at Twitter.com/KCSSara.

WHEN DO I NEED A PERMIT? Finishing basements, adding on rooms, adding decks more than 30 inches above grade, replacing heating and cooling equipment or water heaters, kitchen renovations that change the floorplan and certain kinds of electrical work all require permits, said Lawrence city building official Barry Walthall. Owners working on their own homes must get permits themselves, he said. Otherwise, hired contractors are responsible for obtaining permits for their work. Obtaining a permit comes with two city inspec-

tions, a rough inspection while the walls are open — to look at heating and air conditioning ducts, electrical wiring and plumbing — and a final inspection. Done incorrectly, projects such as electrical work or heater replacements can create fire or carbon monoxide hazards, Walthall said. Finishing a basement can introduce other hazards, such as creating a sleeping area without a secondary fire escape route.

Change outlook on fitness with the season As I See F all is in the air. And as we’ve been talking about for the last two columns, the climate is ripe for change. New seasons inspire us to try new things, and fall is no exception. Whether it be rearranging the furniture and cleaning from top to bottom, breaking out the Crock-Pot for new recipes, decorating with a harvest theme or hitting the stores for new fall clothing, we all have our favorite things to do once the cooler weather rolls around. I don’t want to jinx us, but I’m going to go ahead and say it. I think that fall has arrived. Cross your fingers and hold your breath, but I think we are done with the 100-degree weather. In the last few weeks, we’ve talked about stepping up your workouts and not being afraid to try new things. I’ve written about basic exercises that you can do on your own and with no equipment. And let’s not forget about those Tabata sets, which can truly change your mindset to get over that “I have no time” excuse. All of this is fine and good, but it’s time to address the mental part of our health and well-being. You have probably heard the terms “mind/body” used in a variety of

FIT JENNIFER OSBORN

ways and to cover everything from Pilates classes to meditation. But what does it really mean and why is it so important for our overall health? Numerous medical studies have indicated that the connection between the effect that the mind and spirit have on the body is nothing short of profound. Many of us start diet and exercise programs only

to fizzle out and return to our negative habits after a few weeks. It’s precisely for this reason that taking the time to really check in with ourselves is key. We have to be able to change our mindset and identify the things that are getting in our way. We have to dig deep within ourselves and ask the difficult question, “I want to do this. I want to lose weight and I want to be healthy. Why am I NOT DOING IT?” We all have reasons that we think are valid. But only by spending some time in reflection and self-examination can we even begin to answer that question honestly. We have to identify the reasons in order to get those obstacles out of our way. Research studies have shown that when overweight or physically inactive people begin a lifestyle change, there is usually some instigating factor, such as a health scare, personal epiphany or a group-led activity, such as a workplace wellness challenge. These studies have also shown that when we think positive thoughts as we begin these changes, such as “I am a runner” or “I like eating well and I like being healthy,” we really are able to change our mindset and the road to wellness becomes that much easier.

If we identify ourselves as such, we can become the fit and healthy person that we want to be. We have to change our inside in order to change our outside. How can you do this? Start with these easy steps: 1. Identify the obstacles, mental and physical, that are in the way of your diet and exercise plan. 2. Set small and ACHIEVABLE goals. Don’t set yourself up for failure with unrealistic expectations. 3. Develop strategies to hold you accountable before you fall off the wagon. Whether it be telling a friend of your plan, writing it down, or simply getting back up when you fail, you must have some plan in place to keep you going. There are many free, online support groups if you prefer to be anonymous. Understanding yourself and holding yourself accountable will make your journey to true health and wellness complete. It’s a new season, and it’s a time of change. Let me know how you are doing. I know that you can make the changes you want to see! — Jennifer Osborn can be reached at go@ljworld.com.

IUDs, implants recommended birth control for teens BY LINDSEY TANNER, ASSOCIATED PRESS

C

HICAGO — Teenage girls may prefer

the pill, the patch or even wishful thinking, but their doctors should be recommending IUDs or hormonal implants — long-lasting and more effective birth control that you don’t have to remember to use every time, the nation’s leading gynecologists group said Thursday. The IUD and implants are safe and nearly 100 percent effective at preventing pregnancy, and should be “first-line recommendations,” the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists said in updating its guidance for teens. Both types of contraception are more invasive than the pill, requiring a doctor to put them in place. That, and cost, are probably why the pill is still the most popular form of contraception in the U.S. But birth control pills often must be taken at the very same time every day to be most

potent. And forgetting to take even one can lead to pregnancy, which is why the pill is sometimes only 91 percent effective. An IUD, or intrauterine device, is a small, T-shaped piece of plastic inserted in the uterus that can prevent pregnancy for up to 10 years. An implant is a matchsticksize plastic rod that releases hormones. It is placed under the skin of the upper arm and usually lasts three years. The new guidelines don’t tell teens not to use other methods, but “if your goal is to prevent a pregnancy, then using an implant or an IUD would be the best way to do this,” said Dr. Tina Raine-Bennett, head of the committee that wrote the recommendations. The organization’s previous guidelines, issued in 2007, also encouraged the use of IUDs and implants among teenagers. The new guidelines go further in saying physicians should discuss the two types of birth control with sexually active teens at every doctor visit. The gynecologists group said condoms should still be used at all times because

no other birth control method protects against AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases. While it may sound surprising that such invasive contraceptives are being endorsed for teenagers, 43 percent of girls ages 15 to 19 have had sex, a government survey found. Most are using some kind of effective birth control, but only about 5 percent use the long-lasting devices, the gynecologists group said. The IUD and implant cost hundreds of dollars. The new health reform law requires health insurance plans to cover birth control without co-payments. Also, some publicly funded health clinics offer birth control free or at a reduced cost. The American Academy of Pediatrics has been more cautious and has not endorsed specific methods of birth control but is updating its guidance. Some pediatricians have been reluctant to recommend IUDs for teens, partly because of concerns over infection risks; an older model was blamed for infertility.

While in the past, New York Fashion Week made loud and clear that specific trends would be top-selling items (ahem, neon), it’s safe to say that Spring 2013 includes something for everyone.

Spring 2013 fashions wearable in Midwest right off the runway

“T

he pajama trend is here to stay,” Tommy Hilfiger, American designer, said during the latest biannual New York Fashion Week. More glorious words have never been spoken, and I don’t even care if they’re true. Of course, Hilfiger didn’t mean actual pajamas but instead silk pajama-like shirts, a staple in designers like Hilfiger’s and J.Crew’s Fashion Week collections. The week of Sept. 6-13 marked this season’s showcase of Spring 2013 designs and trends, and among them, we can expect stores to carry a lot of stripes; tons of loose fitting garments; a variety of chunky, layer-able bracelets; and otherwise practical clothes in the upcoming spring season. Overwhelmingly, designers filled the runways with clothes that the everyday Midwest woman could have taken directly off the model and worn the next day without any weird glances thrown her way. The week’s collections embraced a variety of styles. While in the past, New York Fashion Week made loud and clear that specific trends would be top-selling items (ahem, neon), it’s safe to say that Spring 2013 includes something for everyone. And I do mean everyone. Fanny packs and crop tops brushed up against leather and corsets; the black and white color schemes of Marc Jacobs contrasted against the bright color pops of Michael Kors; designs that exaggerate the female form clashed against loose-hanging garments. And all the differing designs, I believe, tell us something important: fashion is no longer a top-

down hierarchy. There isn’t someone at the top dictating arbitrarily what we should be wearing and buying. The hierarchy is becoming flatter and flatter; the fashion world is melding into a democracy. And because consumers are more and more holding the keys to the fashion world, the opportunity for increased individualism is ripe. My hope is that the market reacts in a way that produces lots of new, local, niche shops and fewer warehousestyle stores. Now that nothing is too off-base, now that we’re armed with a lot of choice, perhaps we won’t take the easiest, most convenient way out. Now that it seems that we are the masters of our sartorial destiny, we’ll choose our path wisely. Don’t get me wrong, I love the convenience and options of going into one 40,000 square-foot store and picking and choosing the pieces that work for me among an overwhelming amount of clothes. However, I like even more when I go into a store like Nomads, 725 Mass., or Hobbs, 700 Mass., and know when I walk in that I am going to like nearly every single piece of clothing they sell. While New York Fashion Week tells stores what they should be looking out for to sell in the upcoming seasons, and while we saw definite trends at this Fashion Week, look for more and more defined and unique trends coming from different designers in upcoming Fashion Weeks. It’s my hope Richard Drew/AP Photos that these trends, which should grow in number and become more defined, will fuel an emergence THE MICHAEL KORS SPRING 2013 COLLECTION is modeled Sept. 12 during Fashion Week in New York.

Unleashing a teenage driver

River City Jules

S

itting in the dealer’s office negotiating a car for our daughter to drive (someday, when we teach her how to use a stick shift), the room started spinning. I rubbed my eyes, trying to focus on our dealer’s face as words like “six-cylinder” and “1.6 liters” tumbled from his lips. But the only thing I could see was the face of the nurse who wheeled me to the hospital exit over 15 years earlier with my newborn daughter in my arms. She mentioned diapers, breast pumps and umbilical care, but she did not mention that the eight-pound, nine-ounce ball of wonder we had just secured into a five-point harness car seat would someday venture out onto the streets alone, without my husband cautiously crawling five below the speed limit while I checked her air passage every 30-45 seconds, but, rather behind the steering wheel. “Wait a minute!” I interrupted. My husband and the dealer looked at me. “I’m still not sure this is the right car for her.” “What do you think we should get?” asked my patient husband, who had spent almost as many hours researching cars as our daughter had spent baby-sitting to save up for one. “She needs something bigger,” I started, “made of military-grade titanium. Like a tank, but in bright yellow, so other drivers will be able to see her coming. Maybe with a light on top.” “Like a school bus?” my husband clarified. “Exactly!” I replied. “But with bubblewrap interior. And a helmet.” “She’ll never be able to park it,” he reasoned. “That’s fine,” I assured him, “I’ll drive her around in it.” “You’ll never be able to park it either.” He is so picky about parking within the

JULIE DUNLAP

lines, not touching other cars when you park, blah blah blah … “But this car,” I said, pointing out to the lot, “doesn’t have a protective 20-foot, Tempur-Pedic-lined force field around the driver’s seat.” “Neither does a school bus,” our dealer piped up. “And, speaking of mattresses, this car,” my husband said, pointing out to the lot, “has a small back seat. Nothing is going to happen back there.” I considered this for a moment. “Where do I sign?” No bright yellow titanium, no bubblewrap interior. We can’t force a helmet on her, but we can plead for the rest of you to proceed with caution. Pay attention to the road, driven by our daughter and thousands of other daughters and sons. Slow down. Put away your phone. I have seen you try to drive while texting, and you are terrible, truly terrible, at it. In return, we will do our best to let loose a fuel-efficient roadster driven by one irreplaceable, sometimes stubborn (not sure where she got that trait) teen who has sworn up and down to drive it with care … as soon as we teach her how to use a stick shift. — Julie Dunlap can be reached at go@ljworld.com.

Install a turnbuckle on sagging screen door

I

f your screen door is sagging and won’t close properly anymore, installing a screen door turnbuckle may be the solution to your woes. Step 1: Screen door turnbuckles typically come in two sizes: 42-1/2 inches long for doors that are less than 36 inches wide, and 50 inches for doors that are 36 inches wide or larger. Measure the width of the sagging screen door to determine what size will work best. Step 2: Assemble the turnbuckle. Thread the rods into the coupling nut no more than 1/2 inch on each end, to keep the turnbuckle as long as possible. Thread one rod into the coupling nut by turning it clockwise and the other rod in by turning it counterclockwise. Step 3: Hold the assembled turnbuckle diagonally across the lower portion of the screen door. Center the lower end of the turnbuckle below the door handle, about 2 inches from the bottom of the door. Step 4: Position the upper portion of the turnbuckle as far up as possible on the hinge side of the door, centering the end between the door edge and the screen. Step 5: Use a pencil to mark the posi-

tion of the mounting holes on both the upper and lower portion of the turnbuckle. Step 6: Drill a shallow pilot hole for each of the mounting screws. Step 7: Attach the turnbuckle to the screen door by threading the upper mounting screw through the hole in the upper portion of the turnbuckle and into the hinge side pilot hole. Do not tighten the screw completely. Step 8: Angle the turnbuckle across the door until the lower mounting hole is aligned with the pilot hole near the bottom of the door. Thread the lower mounting screw through the mounting hole and into the pilot hole. Step 9: Tighten the mounting screws until the turnbuckle is securely fastened to the door. Step 10: Straighten the sagging door by turning the coupling nut to tighten the turnbuckle. As the turnbuckle is tightened, the bottom of the door should lift and pull, making the door square once again. — Linda Cottin can be reached at go@ljworld.com.

Portland: Where young people retire? BY JONATHAN J. COOPER, ASSOCIATED PRESS

P

ORE. — Portland may not be “a city where young people go to retire,” but it’s the place they go to be underemployed, a new study found. A famous quip by Fred Armisen on the television show “Portlandia” led Portland State University researchers to investigate the reality behind the comment. The quirky IFC network series pokes fun at the Oregon city’s many eccentricities. The researchers’ review found that Portland is a magnet for the young and college educated from across the country, even though a disproportionate share of them are working part-time or holding jobs that don’t require a degree. In short, young college grads are moving here, and staying, because they like the city’s amenities and culture, not because they’re chasing jobs. Their participation in the labor force tracks with other cities, but they make 84 cents on the dollar when compared to the average of the 50 largest metropolitan areas, the research found. “You put all of that together, and it suggests that young people are coming here and they’re trying to make the best of it,” said Greg Schrock, an assistant professor in urban studies at Portland state. “They’re committed to ORTLAND,
