To a person who hears, lunchtime at this particular school can be a jarring and confusing sight. Hands aflutter, kids laughing, the clanging of chairs and the squeaking of floors. Heads quickly scan the room, looking to see if they missed part of a funny comment or are being left out of a story. But nary a word. Have a camera, and curiosity soars. But the students approach with caution. There’s an awkward moment when a student realizes a hearing person doesn’t speak their language. And for a hearing person, you can’t help but feel left out of all the fun. A brave 4-year-old approaches. Tiny fingers move and the girl is telling you her age. “I’m four,” she says, in sign language. The cookie she’s munching on? “It’s chocolate chip,” she says and now bored, she turns around, munching and signing, talking to her friends. The scene isn’t much different from an encounter with a 4-year-old at another school. Curiosity, a short attention span and having lunch

NEW YORK — At his first press conference as CEO of Ford, Alan Mulally was asked how he could run such a complex company with no experience in the car business. The former Boeing executive responded that cars, which have around 10,000 parts, are indeed very sophisticated. Then he smiled and noted that a jumbo jet has 4 million parts — and it flies. If there were doubters when Mulally joined Ford in 2006, there aren’t many now. The year he took over, the company lost $17 billion. Last year, it made $6.6 billion, its biggest profit in 11 years. Within weeks of arriving, Mulally took out a huge loan Mulally and began pushing through a restructuring that continued even as the recession sent rivals General Motors and Chrysler into bankruptcy protection. Behind his sunny demeanor and fuzzy red sweater vests, the 66-year-old Kansan, who grew up in Lawrence and graduated from Lawrence High School and Kansas University, had the steel to rein in the bureaucracy and infighting at Ford. He promoted managers who could work together and fired those who couldn’t. He shed money-losing brands like Jaguar, Volvo and Mercury. He closed six U.S. plants, cut thousands of jobs and saved billions in engineering costs by reducing the number of models Ford builds. Instead of making regional versions of a Focus, for example, Ford now designs one version for the world. Mulally still faces big challenges. Ford is struggling to overhaul Lincoln, which was the nation’s top-selling luxury brand a decade ago but fell victim to underfunding and more stylish rivals. Its sales in China, the world’s biggest car

The Kansas School for the Deaf’s campus welcomed about a thousand alumni back to the school this weekend in celebration of the school’s 150th anniversary. For those who’ve spent their formative years at the school, the event is more than a high school reunion, said Sandra Kelly, director of the Deaf Cultural Center, which is across from the school. “It’s a family reunion,” she said. One of the school’s notable alumni, renowned artist Chuck Baird, made the trip back to reminisce with old friends, or what he calls his “school family.” Baird, who graduated from the school in 1967, has left his mark around the school, as examples of his “DeVIA,” short for Deaf View/Image Art, adorn the hallways and

Just more evidence to help fight the occasional stereotypes the deaf students at the school encounter. “It can be frustrating sometimes with a hearing person because they think that we’re limited,” he said. About half the roughly 150 students live near the school — which is part of the state’s public school system and is available to any deaf student in Kansas — and attend during the day, like Cameron. The other half live farther away from the school and stay in dorms on site during the week. Cameron, originally from South Korea, was adopted when he was 3 and started in the preschool program. Cameron had an early leg up on education, which is key, said Luanne Barron, the school’s assistant superintendent. Students can attend as early as age 3 and stay until they’re 21.

school, which students and staff simply call KSD, after college to be a counselor. “KSD is very important to me,” he said.

Two languages Barron emphasizes that the school is a bilingual school, where students learn English and American Sign Language. “They’re two completely different languages,” she said. In addition to other state certification requirements, teachers at the school must also be certified in American Sign Language. The staff has both deaf and hearing faculty, Barron said. Classes are designed to give both languages equal weight, and that’s on full display in teacher Daniel Allen’s sixth-grade classroom for story time. During the week, the students were studying Roald Dahl’s “James and the Giant Peach.” As opposed to simply reading the story, Allen and the class also sign the words. The students giggle throughout Allen’s signing of the story, as he exaggerates the signs and adds in his own humorous facial expressions. “It’s one of my favorite things to do with my class,” Allen said. “I love it.” The performance aspect of story time embraced by Allen is key, he said, because it helps students connect the written word to the gestures and signing. “It’s a visual language,” Allen said. The visual aspect is a point emphasized by teachers and by the decoration of the school. At every corner of the several buildings on the campus, students are met with bright colors, murals and “deaf-visual” art, which is a combination of artwork and signing. Lining the school library are portraits with a visual element, such as a house with hands signing “home.” ‘Typical’ experiences And deaf families from all over the country make Olathe their home, in large part because of the reputation of the school and the city.

High school student Briella Diaz, 15, moved with her parents and siblings — all of whom are deaf — last year from Utah, after having trouble with services for the deaf in that state. “We knew there was a large deaf community here,” Briella said. “Everything’s ready to go here.” Briella talks in glowing terms of the community surrounding the school. Go into a store or restaurant, and you’re bound to run into another deaf person, she said. Police carry notebooks and are ready to write notes to residents during interactions, and businesses seem ready and willing to assist deaf customers. “There’s caption televisions everywhere,” Briella said. Supporting the deaf “is like the law here.” But occasionally, Briella said, she and her friends encounter someone not quite comfortable with a deaf person. “Some hearing people just back off,” she said. But that provides an opportunity. “It’s important to educate them.” When asked about what her life is like and what she likes to do, Briella uses the word “typical” a lot. She plays volleyball, competes on the academic bowl team, hangs out with friends and plans to go to college at Gallaudet University, a school for the deaf in Washington, D.C., that’s a popular college choice for the school’s students. Briella laughs when asked if there’s the typical gossip about boyfriends and girlfriends among the students. “Oh yeah, it’s real-life drama here,” she said. Ask Briella what it’s like being deaf, or going to a deaf school, and she just shrugs. They’re questions she’s been asked before, and she just doesn’t have any huge revelations about her experiences. “We just have a different language, that’s all,” she said.

Leader rejects peace blueprint Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas strongly suggested Saturday that he would reject a peacemaking blueprint put forward by international mediators, saying he would not agree to any proposal that disregarded Palestinian conditions for the resumption of peace talks. Abbas, who returned to the West Bank on Saturday after submitting a statehood bid at the United Nations a day earlier, told reporters accompanying him that he was still studying the proposal by the peacemaking Quartet — the U.S., European Union, United Nations and Russia. But he appeared to tip his hand by saying “we will not deal with any initiative” that doesn’t demand a halt to Israeli settlement construction or negotiations based on borders before the 1967 War when Israel captured land the Palestinians claim for their state. 2 | YEMEN

President’s troops kill 40 In one of the bloodiest days of Yemen’s uprising, government troops backed by snipers and shelling attacked a square full of Yemeni protesters Saturday and battled with pro-opposition forces in the capital, killing at least 40 people and littering the streets with bodies. The violence signaled an accelerated attempt by President Ali Abdullah Saleh and his loyalists to crush their rivals and tighten his grip on the country after his return a day earlier from Saudi Arabia, where he has been undergoing treatment for the past three months for wounds suffered in an assassination attempt. One of Saleh’s top rivals, Maj. Gen. Ali Mohsen alAhmar, called for international help, asking the U.S. and other regional powers to rein him in.

Putin to run for president in 2012 Russia’s Prime Minister Vladimir Putin will likely return to power as president next year after President Dmitry Medvedev nominated him Saturday as the ruling political party’s candidate for the March 2012 presidential elections. The announcement signaled Medvedev’s willingness to step down after a single term in office and to yield leadership to Putin, who served two terms as president during 2000-08 but was barred from running again in 2008 due to term limits. The move ended speculation about the country’s likely next leader and triggered sharp criticism from Russia’s opposition, which condemned the proposed power swap as an anti-reform move that will lead to economic stagnation. After the March elections, Russia’s next president will serve six years instead of the previous four-year terms, under a constitutional change.

Lawrence resident Vernon Burkett was among more than 1,200 people who attended the annual health fair Saturday at Lawrence Memorial Hospital. “It’s where all of the healthy people hang for one day a year,” the 56-year-old joked. Not only did he enjoy catching up with neighbors and friends, but he did what health professionals encourage everyone to do — practice prevention. He had the following health screenings at the fair: Body Mass Index, blood pressure, hearing, height and weight measurement, oral cancer, vision, waist circumference, glucose, skin cancer, bone density and prostate. Burkett didn’t share any results but said he considers himself fairly healthy. “I can touch my toes,” he said, with a smile. Aynsley Anderson, LMH community education coordinator, said the health fair has grown immensely during the past 30 years. This year, there were 30 educational exhibits Please see HEALTH, page 4A

Here are some tips from a handful of medical care providers: !"Dr. Kathani Amin of Kansas Medical Clinic Dermatology — Everyone should get a skin cancer screening every year by a dermatologist and do a self examination once a month. Look for asymmetry, irregularity and color variation and watch moles that are larger than a pencil eraser. If there is anything changing, itching, bleeding or tender, seek professional help. More than 700,000 Americans develop skin cancer every year. “If you catch these things early, then they are preventable and curable. If you don’t then it could cause problems down the line,” she said. When it comes to sunscreen, she advises people to use one with a Sun Protection Factor of 45 or higher and to apply it 30 minutes before going outside and then reapply every two hours if active. She said there’s no such thing as a waterproof sunscreen. !"

But Josh Johnson, a 38-year-old area skater, said he wants to survey users of the park to determine what type of changes they want to see at the facility. Johnson said many skate parks in the Kansas City area are bowl-like facilities or “empty swimming pools” that promote a different style of skating than the “street park” style of skating that occurs at the current facility. “It would surprise me if people really push for major

Yet 4,600 women die from cervical cancer each year in the U.S. !" Raymond Munoz of Douglas County Dental Clinic — Brush your teeth twice a day, at morning and night, and floss daily, preferably before you go to bed. He said staff have seen people at the clinic who haven’t brushed their teeth in several weeks. When you don’t take care of your teeth, gum disease and cavities become painful and costly issues. The clinic provides general dental care to children and adults who meet income guidelines and do not have dental insurance. It served 2,800 people last year. While packing up, Anderson also offered advice: Get a medical home and have an annual wellness exam. She said it’s important to know your numbers when it comes to blood pressure, cholesterol and blood sugar. “Oh, and don’t forget to follow general healthy lifestyle habits like not smoking, eating nutritiously, exercising and managing stress,” she said.

she said. “That stressful time over the holidays can lead people to depression and anxiety — either during or after. So it’s an easy way to help yourself.” She said about 70 percent of the health issues that show up in primary care, like diabetes or high blood pressure, are related to behavioral health issues like stress and depression. That’s why there is a big push nationwide to integrate the two into primary medical homes, like Heartland does. !"

changes to the park,” Johnson said. “Mostly we just want to have input on how the money gets spent.” Johnson said he plans to pass out surveys at the park over the next several weeks. Depending on what the surveys find, he said he and some other older skaters may try to organize a fundraising effort to help supplement the city’s funds. “Hopefully, we can all get together and think creatively and do something unique,” Johnson said. Hecker said the Parks and Recreation Department would be happy to work with the skaters on doing some “targeted fundraising,” meaning that the group could pick a particular feature of the park that it would like to fund.

Hecker said there was some opportunity to expand the park slightly, but he said the main focus would be to repair the surface, which has become badly cracked since the park was created in 1998. “What’s there right now is obviously not ideal,” Hecker said. But it is busy. Toelkes, who said he skates about every day, said it was not unusual to have 70 people at the park, some skating and some “who just hang out and act goofy.” Johnson said he thinks the numbers will grow because many younger skaters are now sticking with the sport as they age. Hecker said the department recognizes the value of having a skate park. In fact, he said the skate park and the

adjacent Frisbee golf course — two sports that weren’t on many radar screens 25 years ago — have made Centennial Park one of the busier parks in the city. “It seems like you can go by the skate park every night and the lights are on,” Hecker said. “It is a busy place.” Commissioners approved the $125,000 worth of skate park improvements as part of a $1 million package of maintenance projects that also includes repairs to the Riverfront and New Hampshire parking garages, City Hall roof repairs, outdoor swimming pool and slide repairs, and Deerfield Park repairs. — City reporter Chad Lawhorn can be reached at 832-6362.

Suspect in teen’s death seeks to bar evidence By Roxana Hegeman Associated Press

WICHITA — The man accused of killing a 14-yearold Great Bend girl does not want jurors at his capital murder trial to hear evidence of his relationship with the teenager. Attorneys for Adam Joseph Longoria, 37, filed a motion Friday in Barton County District Court asking the judge to prohibit prosecutors from presenting such evidence, saying it is immaterial to the case. The defense contended the testimony is nothing more than a “blatant attempt” to prejudice the jury. “If the proffered testimony were admitted, the speculation and conjecture would so prejudice Mr. Longoria as to deny him his constitutional right to a fair trial,” his attorneys wrote. The defense filing came in response to a notice that the state plans to introduce evidence that Longoria became “obsessed” with Alicia DeBolt after meeting her at a birthday party. The missing girl’s charred body, with traces of duct tape on her ankle and face, was found last year at the Ven-

ture Corp. asphalt plant where Longoria w o r k e d southwest of Great Bend. COURTS Longoria faces amended charges of capital murder, attempted rape and criminal solicitation of a minor. A new preliminary hearing on revised charges is set for Oct. 5. The state alleges Longoria’s “fixation” with Alicia started July 17, 2010, when he met her at a birthday party for his live-in girlfriend, Eva Brown. He then saw Alicia again the following night. “He began to woo Alicia by fawning over her and providing her with mixed alcohol drinks. He wanted Alicia to be ‘his girl,’” prosecutors wrote. “When another male took her home at the end of the party, the defendant became upset, later accusing

this individual of blocking his attempts to have sex with Alicia.” Longoria and Alicia began texting July 18, 2010, exchanging 55 messages that day, the state contends. The then 36-year-old Longoria, who claimed to be 25, reportedly called Alicia “miss shy” and “hot stuff” and asked her to send him a picture, which she did. He also reportedly offered to pick her up and take her out multiple times. The state’s motions also said Brown entered into a “texting war with Alicia” and asked her to stop talking to Longoria. When Alicia asked Longoria if he was dating Brown, he allegedly replied, “No ex.” Prosecutors allege Longoria attempted unsuccessfully on four previous occasions to get the girl in the car with him. “On August 21, 2010, the defendant’s depraved fantasy came true,” prosecutors wrote. “He started to text Alicia at 9:46 p.m. He lured Ali-

cia into his vehicle, took her to an isolated area, attempted to rape her, and killed her.” The state argued that the nature of the relationship between Longoria and the girl tends to prove the identity of the person who killed her, arguing that makes the evidence admissible at his trial. In their response, his defense attorneys contended that what the state is actually seeking is to prejudice Longoria by painting a picture of him as someone who was obsessed with Alicia. “It is important to note that this ‘obsession’ is nothing more than the opinion of the state based upon their interpretation of selected events, some of which don’t even entail Mr. Longoria,” his attorneys wrote.

lic universities but below the national average of 36 percent for all four-year institutions, according to the Higher Educational Institute. Some states are implementing initiatives aimed at keeping college students on a four-year path by discouraging them from taking extra time and extra courses. In Kansas, the focus has been on urging students to take the required course load — at least 16 hours per semester — and to get help early to avoid dropping or failing classes. At WSU, which has a high percentage of nontraditional, working students, the regents’ directive to get students to finish college faster is more challenging. Only about 15 percent of WSU students graduate in four years; only 40 percent graduate in six. Nonetheless, several retention and graduation initiatives are under way there as well, including a new course called “WSU 101.” The threecredit-hour course, which teaches study skills and time management, is designed to ease students’ transition to college, and it counts toward graduation. A new “early alert system” at WSU allows faculty to identify students who are struggling in their first three to four weeks of school, either by performing poorly on work or not showing up, said Pickus, the interim provost. A notice is sent to an academic support official, who contacts the student, he said. Kansas State University recently updated and streamlined its general-education requirements into the “KState 8” — eight general areas of study aimed at getting students to explore disciplines outside their majors. Students could meet the “aesthetic experience and interpretive understanding” requirement by taking “History of Rock and Roll,” ‘‘Fiction Into Film” or “Horticultural Design.” They could meet the “natural and physical sciences” requirement by completing a course in oceanography, basic nutrition or crop science.

LIGHT THE NIGHT

Walk a bright spot for those affected by cancer By Aaron Couch acouch@ljworld.com

They carried illuminated balloons down Mass. Street by the hundreds. Red in support of cancer patients, blue for those who had survived it, and gold for those who had lost someone to cancer. The eighth annual Light the Night Walk, held Saturday night, was a chance to raise awareness and raise funds for cancer research and treatment. Domenico Idoni drove 18 hours I am from Baltimore to grateful to support of be here.

Idoni had been a patient of Barnes for 20 years, traveling from Maryland to Lawrence for treatments. He and his wife also came to town years ago so Barnes could deliver two of their children. “It’s a thrill to be here and be a part of this,” Idoni said. The walk began with food and festivities at Watson Park, Sixth and Kentucky streets. There were hot dogs and inflatable games for children Others wearing “Team Barnes” T-shirts also peppered the crowd. Cathy Rosebaugh, a patient of Barnes, said she was happy to see him get so much support. For Barnes, the walk was an opportunity to thank those who had supported him through his treatment and who were raising money for research. “I am grateful to be here. To go from a physician to a patient has been a maturing experience,” Barnes said.

AROUND & ABOUT IN LOCAL BUSINESS ! Pine Family Farms, which for about the last 15 years has operated one of the larger sod farms in the area on property just east of the Tee Pee Junction in North Lawrence, has sold the sod business to a Wichita-based firm, SodShop. The Pines will continue to operate their landscaping materials business, Pine Family Landscape Center, at 1783 E. 1500 Road. That business sells decorative stones, mulch, soil additives, outdoor fire places and other products, in addition to having a contract to serve as landscaping consultants for the Kansas Speedway. Pine Family partner Brian Pine said the slowdown in the area home building industry caused the family to make a decision. “The turf grass business is like a lot of businesses right now,” Pine said. “To make a go of it, you need to have some size and spread out geographically to make it work. We needed to either head in that direction or take this opportunity to sell.” The SodShop has a sod farm near Wichita, but has been looking to add a second sod farm to its operations to better serve customers in the region from Kansas City to Manhattan, said Tony Wilbur, a partner in the business. The company bought the sod farm business and equipment from the Pines, but the Pines continue to own the approximately 155 acres of real estate that the sod farm is located on, Pine said. The SodShop plans to employ about five people as part of the Lawrence operations, and Wilbur’s son, Wade Wilbur, will be serving as the on-site manager for the business. !"A new gourmet food store is planned on East 23rd Street. Lawrence resident Karen Sue Carlson is renovating space at the K-10 Marketplace — 23rd and Harper — for CopperLeaf Gourmet. The company has been selling spice blends, sauces and jellies in retailers around the country and

locally for several years. But now Carlson is opening a space to do some of her own production work and to sell a few items directly to the public. The company produces several seasonings — such as steak, garlic pepper, Cajun and others — along with pepper jellies and barbecue and steak sauces. CopperLeaf has been outsourcing its production, but the new location will allow it to begin producing some of its own products — primarily the sauces and jellies. The location also will include about 400-square-foot shop where Carlson will sell her products and other products made by local companies and members of the Kansas City Food Artisans group. She hopes to have the location open by mid-October. !"Lisa Giroux, a teacher at the Yoga Center of Lawrence, has passed the second half of an intensive certification assessment and is now certified as an Iyengar yoga instructor through the Iyengar National Association of the United States. The two-part certification is taken after rigorous study for many years with senior Iyengar teachers, with whom Giroux has more than 1,000 hours of training. She has also studied with BKS Iyengar and Geeta Iyengar in their visits to the West, and will study in Pune, India, with them this fall. Giroux has been studying and practicing yoga in the Iyengar tradition since 1995. !"Neil Gaskin, co-owner of Natural Breeze Remodeling, recently received an award from the Kansas Health Care Association. KHCA selected Gaskin as “Kansas Care Hero Honoree of the Year” for his and Natural Breeze Remodeling’s contributions and volunteer work for the Douglas County Visiting Nurses Association. The Douglas County VNA nominated Gaskin and Natural Breeze for their continued support over the years.

Venema checked with Marriott and BSHS boys coach Bill Downing — Capalla’s track coach — to make sure the tribute would be OK. After that, Venema spread the word to other programs competing in the meet, and they eagerly joined the tribute. Kaw Valley League rivals Lansing and Mill Valley wore shirts, as did nearby programs like De Soto and faraway schools like Pittsburg. The Paola program went a step further, rounding up financial donations to help support the Capalla family. “Distance runners protect their own,� Venema said, explaining why so many programs wanted to participate. “They respect her personally,� Downing said. “They’ve seen her work ethic and how far she’s come ever since she was a freshman.

She’s facing a challenge far more grueling than any cross country course could throw at her, but her fellow runners made sure her senior season included a memorable moment in the spotlight. “She seems like a great kid, and the kind of thing she’s going through should never happen to any kid,� Venema said. “So if we can just help her have a special day, then that’s great.� For Capalla, the gesture was completely unexpected, and it warmed her heart. “I was very surprised,� Capalla said of her reaction to the T-shirts, a smile glowing on her face. “But it was a good surprise.

World powers attempt to contain debt crisis By Gabriele Steinhauser and Martin Crutsinger Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Global finance officials pledged on Saturday to take bolder moves to confront a European debt crisis that threatens to plunge the world into another deep recession. But sharp disagreements about exactly what to do can’t offer much reassurance to markets rocked by uncertainly in recent weeks. The United States and other countries outside of Europe fear the economic fallout at home from the European crisis. They are raising the pressure on Europeans to settle their differences and agree on a plan to rescue heavily indebted European countries. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner bluntly told officials at a meeting of the International Monetary Fund Geithner that time was running short to stave off potential domino-style defaults in Europe. European governments, he said, need to join with the European Central Bank to provide stronger support to calm market fears. He said the ECB, the central bank for the 17 nations that use the euro as a common currency, should make sure that financially troubled countries trying to reform their economies can get loans at affordable rates and that European banks have access to the capital they need to operate. Fears that Greece is in danger of defaulting on its debt have rattled U.S. and global markets. Such a development would add to the stress for major banks in France and Germany that have a large exposure to Athens’ debt. It also would further strain on other heavily indebted Portugal and Ireland, and even bigger economies such as Italy and Spain. For the week, the Dow Jones industrial average fell 6.4 percent, its worst performance since Oct. 10, 2008, when it dropped 18 percent at the height of the U.S. financial crisis. “The threat of cascading default, bank runs and catastrophic risk must be taken off the table,” Geithner told the IMF’s policy committee. “Decisions as to how to conclusively address the region’s problems cannot wait until the crisis gets even more severe.”

LAWRENCE CITY COMMISSION Agenda highlights • 6:35 p.m. Tuesday • City Hall, Sixth and Massachusetts streets • Knology Channel 25 • Meeting documents online at lawrenceks.org

Leaders to look at rate-dollar policy BOTTOM LINE City commissioners will consider a new policy that defines when it is appropriate for the city to take rate dollars paid to the city’s water, sewer, trash and other “enterprise” funds and use those dollars to help pay for costs in other city departments.

BACKGROUND

Freed Americans head home MUSCAT, OMAN — Two Americans freed from an Iranian prison told reporters Saturday they were “eager to go home” just before boarding their flight to the U.S. from Oman, the Gulf state that helped mediate their release after more than two years in custody on accusations of spying. Josh Fattal and Shane Bauer were scheduled to arrive home today, according to Samantha Topping, a spokeswoman for

their families. The two were released from Tehran’s Evin prison under a $1 million bail deal and arrived in Oman on Wednesday in the first leg of their journey home. There they were reunited with joyful relatives. Iran’s Foreign Ministry called their release a gesture of Islamic mercy.

Plane with 19 on board crashes

while attempting to land in dense fog in Nepal today, police and eyewitnesses said. A witness said 18 bodies were pulled out of the wreckage of the plane, which was carrying 19 people. The Beechcraft plane belonging to Buddha Air was carrying 16 foreign tourists and three crew members and crashed at Bisankunarayan village, just a few miles south of the capital, Katmandu. Police officials near the crash site said rescuers had reached the crash site, but would not comment on casualties.

Small dent in jobless rate seen from president’s plan By Tom Raum Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Even if Congress heeds President Barack Obama’s demands to “pass this bill right away” and enacts his jobs and tax plan in its entirety, the unemployment rate probably still would hover in nosebleed territory for at least three more years. Why? Because the 1.9 million new jobs the White House says the bill would produce in 2012 falls short of what’s needed to put the economy back on track to return to pre-recession jobless levels of under 6 percent, from today’s rate of 9.1 percent. That’s how deep the jobs hole is. The persistent weakness of the U.S. economy has left 14 million people unemployed and more than 25 million unable to find full-time work. Economists of all stripes pretty much agree that it will be a long, hard road no matter what Congress does. Right now, the Republicans who run the House and the Democrats who lead the Senate aren’t finding much common ground.

Obama estimates his American Jobs Act would lower unemployment by just a single percentage point by next year, to just over 8 percent, heading into the 2012 presidential election. Burned before by making overly optimistic job-creation predictions, the White House turned to prominent outside economists to crunch the numbers. The projection of 1.9 million new jobs, a 1 percentage point drop in the unemployment rate and a 2 percentage point increase in the gross domestic product under Obama’s plan came from Mark Zandi, chief economist of Moody’s Analytics. But Zandi said in an interview his forecast also is based on an assumption that “the president’s entire package is passed by the end of the year,” a slim prospect given the current divided leadership in Congress, and that there are no other budgetary policy changes. “I assumed that it would be paid for,” Zandi said. “I didn’t know when I did that simulation how the president proposed to pay for it.” Since then, Obama has said

he would pay for his $447 billion package with permanent income tax increases of about $150 billion a year, mostly on wealthy individuals and corporations, in addition to spending cuts. That’s drawn criticism from Republicans, who say any tax increases could further stall the fragile recovery. Zandi, who has advised both Republican and Democratic lawmakers, said he’s still sticking with his forecast, mainly because the stimulus in the plan, including a temporary reduction in Social Security taxes for both employees and employers and infrastructure spending, would come in 2012 and be paid for later. But there is one feature Obama doesn’t emphasize. Zandi said his job-creation figure only applies to 2012. “Beginning in 2013, and certainly into 2014, the plan is a drag on the economy because the stimulus starts fading away,” he said. “So by 2015, the economy is in the same place as now, as if there were no jobs package.” Also, Zandi said, his forecast does not leave any room for a new recession. If that happens, all bets are off.

Obama to blacks: ‘Stop complainin,’ fight PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA GREETS the crowd at the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation annual Phoenix Awards in Washington on Saturday.

By Mark S. Smith Associated Press

WASHINGTON — In a fiery summons to an important voting bloc, President Barack Obama told blacks on Saturday to quit crying and complaining and “put on your marching shoes” to follow him into battle for jobs and opportunity. And though he didn’t say it directly, for a second term, too. Obama’s speech to the annual awards dinner of the Congressional Black Caucus was his answer to increasingly vocal griping from black leaders that he’s been giving away too much in talks with Republicans — and not doing enough to fight black unemployment, which is nearly double the national average at 16.7 percent. “It gets folks discouraged. I know. I listen to some of y’all,” Obama told an audience of some 3,000 in a darkened Washington convention center. But he said blacks need to have faith in the future — and understand that the fight won’t be won if they don’t rally to his side. “I need your help,” Obama said. The president will need black turnout to match its historic 2008 levels if he’s to have a shot at winning a second term, and Saturday’s speech was a chance to speak directly to inner-city concerns. He acknowledged blacks have suffered mightily because of the recession, and are frustrated that the downturn is taking so long to reverse. “So many people are still hurting. So many people

are barely hanging on,” he said, then added: “And so many people in this city are fighting us every step of the way.” But Obama said blacks know all too well from the civil rights struggle that the fight for what is right is never easy. “Take off your bedroom slippers. Put on your marching shoes,” he said, his voice rising as applause and cheers mounted. “Shake it off. Stop complainin’. Stop grumblin’. Stop cryin’. We are going to press on. We have work to do.” Topping the to-do list, he said, is getting Congress to the pass jobs bill he sent to Capitol Hill two weeks ago. Obama said the package of payroll tax cuts, business tax breaks and infrastructure spending will benefit 100,000 blackowned businesses and 20 million African-American workers. Republicans have indicated they’re open to some of the tax measures — but oppose his means of paying for it: hiking taxes on top income-earners and big business. But at times, Obama also sounded like he was discussing his own embattled tenure.

“The future rewards those who press on,” He said. “I don’t have time to feel sorry for myself. I don’t have time to complain. I’m going to press on.” Caucus leaders remain fiercely protective of the nation’s first African-American president, but in recent weeks they’ve been increasingly vocal in their discontent — especially over black joblessness. “If Bill Clinton had been in the White House and had failed to address this problem, we probably would be marching on the White House,” the caucus chairman, Rep. Emanuel Cleaver of Missouri, recently told McClatchy Newspapers. Like many Democratic lawmakers, caucus members were dismayed by Obama’s concessions to the GOP during the summer’s talks on raising the government’s borrowing limit. Cleaver famously called the compromise deal a “sugar-coated Satan sandwich.” But Cleaver said his members also are keeping their gripes in check because “nobody wants to do anything that would empower the people who hate the president.”

Funding falters Kansans still are waiting to see some positive results from the governor’s private funding model for the arts.

T

he success of fundraising efforts by the new Kansas Arts Foundation will depend in large part on how confident private donors are in the organization that will be handling and distributing their money. So far, the foundation and the remaining shell of the Kansas Arts Commission aren’t inspiring much confidence. Concerns voiced by a Lawrence resident who resigned from the commission last week are a reminder of the unsettled state of arts funding in Kansas. Gov. Sam Brownback created the arts foundation to replace the arts commission, which he abolished by executive order. The Kansas Senate overrode that executive order so the arts commission continues to exist. However, the arts commission funding that legislators had included in the current year’s budget was vetoed by Brownback so the commission has no staff, no money and no direction for the future. Although the governor had predicted the state would continue to receive a base of $1.2 million in federal matching funds to support arts programs, that funding has been denied by the National Endowment for the Arts because Kansas no longer has a state-funded arts organization — the only such state in the nation. The Kansas Arts Foundation was charged with raising private funds, but has yet to announce any success in that effort. In the meantime, local arts organizations across the state are trying to scrape money together to keep at least some of their programs running. It’s not surprising that the foundation’s fundraising efforts are lagging. Why would donors give to an organization that appears to be so lacking in organization and direction? Linda Browning Weis of Manhattan has been appointed to lead both the foundation and the commission, but efforts to get organized don’t seem to be making much progress. If the foundation is able to raise some money, how will it be distributed across the state? Will funding processes and program standards be similar to those set by the previous arts commission, or will new policies be adopted? With no staff in place, who will provide oversight for funding and the programs that receive it? These are questions for which artists, arts agencies and donors need answers. Brownback contends that funding for the arts is not a core function of state government and private fundraising can actually increase funding to the arts in Kansas. Many Kansans don’t accept the governor’s premise about government’s core mission, and nothing that has happened in the state in the last few months seems to confirm that the arts in Kansas are headed toward a better funding situation. It always seemed unlikely that increased private donations could offset the loss of state and federal funding for the arts. Many private dollars already are going into the arts, and this isn’t the best time to be asking for more. Beyond the money, the Kansas Arts Commission and its staff were an important hub for the arts, connecting groups and stretching public money to provide key support to arts projects across the state. The coordination the commission provided may have been more important than the funds. A group called Kansas Citizens for the Arts is calling on the Kansas Legislature and Brownback to restore funding to the Kansas Arts Commission. The governor’s actions so far make that unlikely, but if he and his appointees can’t show some evidence that their private-funding model is getting off the ground, Brownback should rethink his strategy.

Unneeded rules put damper on business PHOENIX — Cindy Vong is a tiny woman with a problem as big as the government that is causing it. She wants to provide a service that will enable customers “to brighten up their days.” Having fish nibble your feet may not be your idea of fun, but lots of people around the world enjoy it, and so did some Arizonans until their bossy government butted in, in the service of a cartel. Herewith a story that illustrates how governments that will not mind their own business impede the flourishing of businesses. Vong, 47, left Vietnam in 1982 and after stops in Indonesia, Thailand, Taiwan and Hong Kong, settled in San Francisco for 20 years, before coming here to open a nail salon with a difference. Her salon offered $30 fish therapy, wherein small fish from China nibble dead skin from people’s feet. Arizona’s Board of Cosmetology decided the fish were performing pedicures, and because all pedicure instruments must be sterilized and fish cannot be, the therapy must be discontinued. Vong lost her more than $50,000 investment in fish tanks and other equipment, and some customers. Three of her employees lost their jobs. The plucky litigators at the Goldwater Institute are representing Vong in arguing that the Constitution protects the individual’s right to earn a living free from unreasonable regulations. In a 1932 case (overturning an Oklahoma law requiring a new ice company to prove a

“public need” for it), the U.S. Supreme Court said the law’s tendency was to “foster monopoly in the hands of existing establishments.” The court also said: “The principle is imbedded in our constitutional system that there are certain essentials of liberty with which the state is not entitled to dispense. ... The theory of experimentation in censorship (is) not permitted to interfere with the fundamental doctrine of the freedom of the press. The opportunity to apply one’s labor and skill in an ordinary occupation with proper regard for all reasonable regulations is no less entitled to protection.” Unfortunately, soon after 1932, New Deal progressivism washed over the courts, which became derelict regarding their duty to

protect economic liberty. Courts deferred to governments eager to experiment with economic micromanagement. Inevitably, this became regulation in the service of existing interests. And regulatory agencies often succumbed to “regulatory capture,” whereby regulated businesses and professions dominate regulatory bodies. Arizona’s Board of Cosmetology consists mostly of professional cosmetologists. In the Cato Institute’s journal Regulation, Timothy Sandefur of the conservative Pacific Legal Foundation examines how “certificate of necessity” (CON) laws stifle opportunity and competition. For example, Michael Munie of St. Louis has a federal license for his moving business to operate across state lines, but when he tried to expand his business to operate throughout Missouri he discovered that state law requires him to somehow prove in advance that there is a “public need” for his business outside St. Louis. Who, Sandefur wonders, could have proved 20 years ago that Americans would support a nationwide chain of coffee shops called Starbucks? And in 1985, experts at Coca-Cola thought they knew the public wanted New Coke. CON laws began with early 20th-century progressives who, like their ideological descendants today, thought that resources should be allocated not by markets but by clever, disin-

terested experts — themselves. As Sandefur says, the toll on opportunity is obvious: “Requiring an unknown dreamer, with no political connections, reputation with consumers, or allies among local business magnates to persuade a government board to let him open a new business can often be a prohibitive cost.” Such laws often are explicitly biased against new businesses. In Illinois, someone wanting to open a car dealership must get a certificate from the Motor Vehicle Review Board, and if any existing dealer objects, the board must consider, among other things, “the effect of an additional franchise ... upon the existing” dealers and “the permanency of the investment of the objecting motor vehicle dealer.” When in March Florida’s Legislature considered a bill to end licensing requirements for 20 professions, including interior design, the interior design cartel, eager to restrict entry into the profession, got a professor of interior design to ask legislators: “Do you know the color schemes that affect your salivation, your autonomic nervous system?” A Tampa interior designer warned: “What you’re basically doing is contributing to 88,000 deaths every year.” Fatal color schemes? Who knew. This overwrought designer should calm down, perhaps by having some fish nibble her feet. — George Will is a columnist for Washington Post Writers Group.

A front-page photo showed Stan Herd’s 20-acre YEARS landscaped still AGO life of a vase of IN 1986 sunflowers. The field, owned by Elizabeth and Sam Neis Jr., was planted with sunflowers, field grass, soybeans, clover and alfalfa. Crop artist Herd said that he hoped the field, which he had plowed and planted the previous fall, would be closest to his original vision in about three weeks. The film crew of CBS’s “On the Road” crew, which had visited the field in June, had recently returned to film another segment for the CBS evening news, accompanied by about 25 people including members of the Kansas Arts Commission. The art work was also to be featured in a two-page spread in the upcoming book “A Day in the Life of America.”

The scientific testimony was wrong. 2010: Anthony Graves is exonerated and set free 18 years after being sentenced to death for the murder of an entire family. The sole eyewitness — who was himself the murderer — lied. I could make a much longer list. There are literally hundreds

Truth asks a simple question: in what field of endeavor have we always gotten it right?

of men, and even a few women, who have been exonerated and set free after being sentenced to death, life, 25, 60, even 400 years for awful things they did not do. I could make a longer list, but space is at a premium and there is more that needs saying here. They killed Troy Davis on Wednesday night. He went to his death still proclaiming his innocence of the 1989 murder of a Savannah, Ga., police officer. Davis was convicted on “evidence” that boiled down to the testimony of nine eyewitnesses, seven of whom later recanted. But Spencer Lawton, who originally prosecuted the case, would not want you to worry your head about that. Hours before Davis was put to death, Lawton was quoted by CNN as saying he had no doubts about the case and was

confident Davis was the killer. How much do you want to bet the prosecutors of Fain, Brewer, Krone or any of those hundreds of others would have said the same thing, expressed the same confidence? Without that confidence, the whole house of cards comes tumbling down. Meaning the death penalty, a flimsy edifice erected on the shaky premise that we always get it right, that human systems always work as designed, that witnesses make no mistakes, that science is never fallible, that cops never lie, that lawyers are never incompetent. You have to believe that. You have to make yourself believe it. Otherwise, how do you sleep at night? So of course a prosecutor speaks confidence. What else is he going to speak? Truth? Truth is too big, too dangerous, too damning. Truth asks a simple question: in what field of endeavor have we always gotten it right? And you know the answer to that. So truth is too pregnant for speaking. Better to avert your eyes and profess your confidence. But one day, too late for Troy Davis, too late for too many, truth will out. Godspeed that day the cards come tumbling down. — Leonard Pitts Jr., winner of the 2004 Pulitzer Prize for commentary, is a columnist for the Miami Herald.

From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for Sept. 25, 1911: YEARS “President WilAGO liam Howard Taft IN 1911 spent just one hour in Lawrence yesterday morning but in that hour the chief executive addressed the throng that had assembled to the depot to greet him, visited Kansas University, addressed the students and townspeople that had gone up the hill and then from the back of his train bid the town farewell as he left to continue his long trip over the United States. A visit to Haskell Institute and an address to the students there was also included in the president’s visit to Lawrence. ... For the first time William H. Taft, president of the United States, was before the people of Lawrence. It was as if he had stepped from one of his pictures, for face and appearance of the president are just as the people picture him.”

Movie highlights NBAF importance MANHATTAN (AP) — A Kansas State University scientist says a new movie about a worldwide health crisis illustrates the importance of the National Bio and Agro-Security Facility being constructed in Manhattan. The movie “Contagion” grossed more than $44 million in its first three weeks and brings attention to the notion of a real-world epidemic. The Manhattan Mercury reported that the fictitious virus in the movie is modeled in part on Nipah Virus, which will be studied at the NBAF. Kansas State virologist Juergen Richt says pandemics are becoming more likely because of rapid globalization and the ease with which people travel. Richt says places like the NBAF can’t keep diseases from occurring, but they can prevent them from getting out of control.

The band gets considerable mileage off of double-tracking Meric Long’s vocals, an effect that, when overused, can sound like a bad echo effect in GarageBand. Here, it does its job — adding a fullness to songs while maintaining the intimacy that is created when two musicians play their hearts out with little assistance aside from their instruments. The result is anthemic, moving stuff. Tonight’s show starts at 8 p.m. Tickets are $12, and the show is all ages.

LEGENDS OF THE PHOG Matt Tait mtait@ljworld.com

Legends provide relief For the past few weeks, on a very public stage, Kansas University had been reduced to the role of second-class citizen because of the turbulent conference realignment talk that, at times, left KU in the very unfamiliar position of feeling like an outsider. Saturday, everything seemed right again. In front of 16,300 rabid fans, 23 former Kansas basketball players returned to Allen Fieldhouse to deliver the kind of performance that reminded the KU faithful where their school ranked in college athletics. “This was good for the soul,” KU athletic director Sheahon Zenger said. In the short term, the Legends of the Phog game gave us all a break from talking about the future of the Big 12. In the long term, it’s an event that will be talked about for ages. “This is truly remarkable. This is unreal,” said Darnell Valentine, an All-American in 1981 who ranks fourth on KU’s all-time assists list. “Are we just crazy in Kansas about our basketball or what? This is a blessing, and we are all feeling the love. Thank you so much.” The game itself had a little bit of everything. Part Globetrotters, part Late Night, part NBA All-Star game. It also included the one common denominator that led all of these guys to KU during the past four decades — competitive fire. While the first half was more of a feel-good fest, the players picked it up a notch in the second half. Bodies banged, former teammates battled for rebounds and a little defense showed up. As the game clock ticked under five minutes to play, one look was all it took to see that no one on the floor wanted to lose. In the end, no one did. Thanks to the kind of clutch shots we’ve come to expect from Paul Pierce, who hit a three for the lead with five seconds left, and, later, Mario Chalmers, who appropriately drained a three to tie it inside the final second, the Jayhawks, old and new, played to a 111-all tie. While the contest was enough to make the night memorable — so many different generations of some of the greatest KU basketball teams on the floor together — the between-the-action festivities brought it to another level. During one time out, the members of the 1952, 1988 and 2008 national championship teams who made it back were introduced to the crowd. During others, Chalmers and Pierce manned the mic and several fresh and nostalgic videos played on the video board. “I don’t think any player can go anywhere in America and be more loved than they are right here at the University of Kansas,” said current KU coach Bill Self. In the modern era of college basketball, the “One more year” chant has become as popular as almost any other, especially late in the season when the home fans are clamoring for their talented underclassmen to stick around town a little longer. With players leaving early for the NBA becoming more regular, even at Kansas, fans at Allen Fieldhouse never quite know when they’re watching the final game in the careers of some of their favorites. Saturday, 10 former Jayhawks who never got the chance to say goodbye gave KU fans the next best thing — one more game. As great as this reunion went, it may not be the last.

Mario’s Miracle II

Pierce returns; Chalmers drills game-ending 3

By Gary Bedore gbedore@ljworld.com

Boston Celtics phenom Paul Pierce knew Saturday’s “Legends of the Phog” would be no ordinary exhibition basketball game. “I told the guys when we came back from the layup line that I felt like it was a Game 7 playoff game. That’s how much adrenaline I had, how many chills I got from walking into the gym,” the 6-foot-7 forward said after scoring 16 points and grabbing eight rebounds in his KU alumni Blue team’s 111-111 tie — yes tie — against the KU White squad in Allen Fieldhouse. Pierce, who last visited KU’s tradition-rich building eight years ago for his jersey retirement ceremony, broke a 108-108 tie by swishing a three over the outstretched hands of defender Brandon Rush with just five seconds remaining. Showing a flair for the dramatic ... Pierce had jogged over to press row a few seconds before the shot to remind announcer Max Falkenstien he never lost a game in Allen in his three-year KU career.” “Of course I did,” Pierce said, asked if he felt he was going to hit the game-winner. “If you don’t believe you are going to hit it, why be out there? “It’s right up there,” he joked, asked where the shot ranked in his storied career. “Put that right behind the birth of my daughter.” Amazingly, that clutch shot ultimately ranked as the second biggest of the game. Responding to the chants of “Mario, Mario,” from the crowd of 16,300 ... Mario Chalmers answered with a game-tying three over the arms of defender Ryan Please see LEGENDS, page 3B

end,” Fischer said. “I was giving my all either way.” He set a new personal record, which was his goal. He wasn’t worried about place and ran a 16:35, finishing first for Lawrence High and 31st overall. The LHS boys took 14th place out of 34 teams. Second for LHS was senior Fischer set a perReid Hildenbrand, who finished sonal record of 16:35 in the boys Please see LHS XC, page 8B 5K varsity race

Senior Kain Anderson, also known as Free State Homecoming King, got his weekend started off on a pretty good leg. After receiving the Homecoming crown Friday night, Anderson went to the Rim Rock Classic on Saturday and set a personal best with a 15:59 and an eighthplace individual finish in the Boys

5K Gold Varsity race. The only problem was figuring out which accomplishment was better. The FSHS boys team finished in 17th place out of 34 teams. “Breaking 16:00 is something that I’ve wanted for a really long time, so it’s also a very sweet thing,” Anderson said. “I can’t pick one. They’re both really good honors.” Please see FSHS XC, page 8B

FEDEX CUP TOUR CHAMPIONSHIP

Woodland 11 back going into final round

Associated Press Golf Writer

ATLANTA — The cup is close enough now for Hunter Mahan and Aaron Baddeley to seriously consider how much it’s worth to them. Even if they’re not thinking about the same cup. Baddeley knew when he showed up at the Tour Championship that it was his last chance to convince captain Greg Norman that he was worth a spot on the Presidents Cup team in his native Melbourne. He made quite an impression Saturday at East Lake, running off four straight birdies on the back nine for a 6-under 64 and a share of the lead. “That’s a huge goal of mine, to make that team and play down in Melbourne,� Baddeley said. “It was definitely on the forefront of my mind to be able to knuckle down, play well this week and show Greg that I’ve got some form.� Mahan is No. 21 in the FedEx Cup, and after he narrowly wrapped up a spot on the U.S. team, said last week he looked forward to the Tour Championship and “not having to worry about 10 things.� Now he’s got 10 million things to think about. Of the top five players in the FedEx Cup, only Luke Donald remains in serious contention. That means Mahan has a shot at the FedEx Cup and its $10 million bonus if he were to win the Tour Championship (and its paltry $1.44 million payoff). “I honestly didn’t think that

Former Kansas University golfer Gary Woodland slipped two spots to 23rd place Saturday after shooting a 2-over 72 in the third round. Woodland is now 2-over for the tournament after shooting a first-round 72 and a secondround 68. He is 11 shots back of co-leaders Hunter Mahan and Aaron Baddeley going into the final round today at East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta.

HUNTER MAHAN HITS from the greenside bunker on the 10th hole during the third round of the Tour Championship golf tournament at East Lake Golf Club on Saturday in Atlanta. was a possibility,� Mahan said after holing a 20-foot birdie putt on the 18th for a 66. Mahan and Baddeley were at 9-under 201. Jason Day recovered from a ragged start and had a 69, leaving him only two shots back. The 23-year-old Australian was tied with K.J. Choi, who also started poorly and shot 70. Donald, the world No. 1 who still can add his name to the prestigious list of players to have captured the FedEx Cup, had a 70 and was only three shots behind. Bill Haas, who had a chance to make the Presidents Cup team last week until a 42 on the back nine at Cog Hill, was among those tied for the lead until the final holes. He went bunker-to-bunker on the 17th and had to scramble for bogey, then hit his tee shot on the 18th into the crowd, missed a 4-foot putt and made double bogey. Haas was followed by his father, Jay Haas, an assistant cap-

tain for the Presidents Cup. He had to settle for a 69 and was so steamed that he refused requests for interviews. Ten players were separated by five shots — the margin by which Baddeley trailed going into the third round — and the group includes Phil Mickelson, who won this event two years ago. He had a 67 and was only four shots behind. “I feel like the first three rounds, I had three possibilities of 63, 64 that I turned into 68, 69,� Mickelson said. “If I can just not do that and keep it where I feel the round should be, I think I can make a run tomorrow.� The pressure is building on so many fronts going into today, and while it’s easy to focus on the $10 million to the winner of the FedEx Cup — $9 million of that in cash — for some it’s a cup that doesn’t pay anything. Baddeley, a winner at Riviera early in the year, grew up in Melbourne and desperately wants to

be part of his first Presidents Cup team at Royal Melbourne. He is among three Australians — Robert Allenby and John Senden are the others —under consideration for two of Norman’s picks. They will be announced Tuesday. Throughout the day, the projections for who might win the FedEx Cup were like watching the stock market. As many as five players moved to the top, although nothing really matters until Sunday. Webb Simpson is No. 1 on the list, and he finished with a birdie on the 18th to get into a tie for 15th. If he were to finish in the top 12, he could still claim the $10 million even if Mahan wins the Tour Championship. Adam Scott remains hopeful, at least of the Tour Championship. He was in the lead until a 39 on the back nine, compounded by a three-putt double bogey on the 14th. He wound up with a 74 and was five shots behind.

Texas drama isn’t about evil, just business

Chase drivers hope better luck starts in N.H.

By Drew Sharp Detroit Free Press

This is now class warfare. College football’s conference realignment fluidity is a microcosm of the broader political tone enveloping the nation. When all else fails, blame the wealthy. It’s their fault because they won’t share. Texas is somehow the villain in the impending demise of the Big 12. Why? The Longhorns are rich, powerful, influential and aren’t timid about reminding everyone about those attributes. But maximizing your worth in this country requires an accompanying apology. Texas justly has taken proper advantage of its natural resources — perhaps the deepest, most concentrated pool of supreme high school football talent in the country, a massive football-crazed population along with two of the top-eight television markets in the nation. The Longhorns are the biggest revenue producer in college football and have more than earned the business right of calling their own shots as it pertains to tapping into new revenue sources. But it’s easier — and certainly more publicly receptive — branding the ‘Horns as evil, greedy, and devoid of a soul and conscience. Expansion negotiations with the Pac12 imploded because Texas apparently refused to share any of the potentially lavish TV revenues from their Longhorn Network relationship with ESPN. My question to the critics is: Why should they give it away for nothing? The biggest dog ultimately gets the bone of its liking. The conference expansion rush isn’t slowing down anytime soon simply because the Pac-12 university presidents opted to stand pat — for the time being. The plan is to wait out Texas, the same as the Big Ten still waits for Notre Dame to come to its senses and realize — at least from the Big Ten’s perspective, anyway — that joining the conference remains the best financial and competitive option available. Through time, the Irish inevitably will come crawling on the Big Ten’s terms. Nobody has seen one bead of sweat on Notre Dame’s brow after all these years. The same is true with Texas. When the Longhorns finally bolt the Big 12, they’ll set the conditions for admittance elsewhere.

LOUDON, N.H. — One and done? Title hopes up in smoke? For the Chase drivers who ran out of gas or good luck in the playoff opener, they have kept the faith that their championship pursuits aren’t spoiled because of a bad start. But it doesn’t help. Denny Hamlin, inconsistent all season, is stuck in 12th place and already 41 points behind leader Kevin Harvick. He struggled all day in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship kickoff last week at Chicagoland and staggered to a 31st-place finish. Matt Kenseth (10th) and Jeff Gordon (11th) are ahead of him in the standings, yet Gordon is only 25 points out of first. Not an enviable position, but certainly no reason to panic — not with nine races left starting today at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. Hamlin, though, could find his championship push extinguished with a similar poor run in the No. 11 Toyota. He couldn’t find a spark Friday and qualified 28th, the worst start among the 12 Chase drivers. “We’re struggling right now just to get consistency and I can’t pinpoint one particular place where we need to work,� Hamlin said. “Someone asked me where we lacked and I don’t know. It’s something different every two to three weeks. It’s painful at this moment.� A year ago, Hamlin was on the brink of his first championship heading into the finale at Homestead. Hamlin entered the race leading the standings only to spin out and slide through the grass to derail his effort and pave the way for Jimmie Johnson to win the title for a fifth straight season. For Hamlin, it wasn’t just a bitter end to the season — it seemed to set the tone for this one. He had only one top 10 in the first eight races. While he did get hot late, he had only one victory and qualified for the Chase with a wild card. “I don’t think anyone has huge expectations for us this Chase,� Hamlin said. “I personally do and still do. I think that we’ve really underachieved quite a bit, so you get frustrated.� Harvick leads Chicagoland winner Tony Stewart by seven points. Seven drivers are 10 to 20 points the leader, including Johnson. “It’s just too early to be overly concerned,� Johnson said.

CYCLING

Armstrong denies report SNOWBASIN RESORT, UTAH — Lance Armstrong denied he’s receiving training help from a banned Italian doctor or his son, but maintains “those guys are my friends and that’s not going to change.� Armstrong spoke Saturday in the wake of allegations that appeared in Italian media this week. The report by Corriere della Sera cited the work of unidentified Swiss and Italian investigators and said that Dr. Michele Ferrari was at the center of a widespread doping ring.

MONDAY • Girls tennis, 3:30 p.m., at home

Armstrong, who won the Tour every year from 1999-2005, has always fiercely denied doping and has never failed a drug test. He is, however, being investigated by a federal grand jury in Los Angeles that has been meeting for more than a year to examine illegal drug use in professional cycling.

SOCCER

Bradley signs as Egypt coach CAIRO — Former United States coach Bob Bradley signed a contract to take over the Egypt national team on Saturday, charged with reviving the fortunes of a team that recently failed to qualify for the African Cup of Nations. The 53-year-old Bradley agreed a deal worth $37,000 a month until after the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. “I’m proud to take over as coach of Egypt,� Bradley said at a news conference. “I’m looking forward to dealing with the players.� Bradley’s first match in charge is an exhibition against five-time world champion Brazil in November. Bradley was fired as U.S. coach in July after more than four years in charge and replaced by Jurgen Klinsmann. Bradley led the U.S. to the last 16 of the World Cup last year and signed a contract extension until 2014 as a result. But even as Bradley was given a new deal, there were concerns the team had stagnated under his leadership and a Gold Cup loss at home to Mexico in June was critical in his departure.

NBA

Irving making most of lockout WESTLAKE, OHIO — Kyrie Irving left college after one year to play in the NBA. He’s back in school. It’s all the No. 1 overall draft pick from Duke can do during the lockout, and Cleveland’s rookie point guard has no idea when he’ll start his real job. As Irving waits for the league to settle its labor dispute, the 19-year-old is working toward a psychology degree in North Carolina — and getting healthy. Irving has been working out without any restrictions while taking four courses this semester. He’s also keeping an eye on the labor dispute, which reached a crucial juncture Friday when the league postponed training camps indefinitely and canceled 43 preseason games. While other players, including superstar Kobe Bryant and other big-name stars, consider playing overseas to stay sharp — and get paid — during the lockout, Irving is content to remain part of Duke’s student body. “I’m going to try and stay in school as long as possible until the lockout is over,� he said. “My dad still stresses education in my life. Me finishing up my sophomore year would be great, but me being able to play in an NBA game would be better.�

MARIO CHALMERS (15) RE-ENACTS HIS FAMOUS LAST-SECOND, THREE-POINT SHOT to tie the Legends of the Phog game at 111. The game ended in a tie on Chalmers’ clutch shot on Saturday at Allen Fieldhouse.

Notebook: Legends of the Phog By Gary Bedore gbedore@ljworld.com

Legends of the Phog notebook. ... Former Kansas University guard Darnell Valentine, 52, was the oldest Jayhawk to play in Saturday’s Legend of the Phog exhibition in Allen Fieldhouse. Valentine had one assist and a steal in four minutes. Valentine in a speech to the fans in a timeout gave a moving tribute to former KU assistant coach Neil Dougherty, who died this past summer while jogging in Indianapolis. Part of the proceeds from Saturday’s game went to charities chosen by Dougherty’s family. “He (Dougherty) gave me the confidence to come to KU with him and coach (Roy) Williams at the time,” said former KU forward Paul Pierce, who also spoke to the fans during a timeout with Dougherty’s family members standing next to him. “I was the youngest of three boys. Two older brothers were out of the house when I was in high school (in Los Angeles). It was tough leaving home, leaving my mother because it was me and her growing up. I trusted coach Dougherty and coach Williams. Neil was a father figure to me. I remember going to his house, getting away from campus, going to eat there, spending time with his family. “He was a player’s coach. He always gave me confidence on the sideline. I remember my junior year he told me I was better than Ray Allen

Robertson with just one tick on the clock. The 6-2 Miami Heat combo guard, who sent the 2008 NCAA title game against Memphis into overtime, had done it again. Yet this time there’d be no extra session. As Pierce raced behind Chalmers to give him a big bear-hug, KU coach Bill Self informed the refs that the game would end in a tie. “I said to Mario, ‘That’s the way it’s supposed to end,’’’ Pierce said. “Everybody remembers his championship shot. It was just a replay of it tonight.” Chalmers, who scored 17 points and dished 10 assists, wasn’t about to disappoint in the clutch. “I heard it,” he said of fans calling his name after White coach Ted Owens called timeout. “It’s something I’ve done before and something I’m accustomed to doing. “This type of atmosphere was great to go out and have fun and be with the older

right now. I didn’t believe him. It’s crazy because I play with Ray Allen now (with Boston Celtics). My heart goes out to he and his family. They made it real comfortable for me to come here.” ! Manning talk: KU coach Bill Self tried to talk KU assistant Danny Manning into playing. Manning sat on the bench next to coach Larry Brown for part of the contest and also doubled as a sideline reporter. “I thought we’d put him out there against Pollard (Scot, eight points) and some of the other guys not in the best shape,” Self joked. “We were going to run a flex cut, duck in and let him shoot a jump hook and make sure nobody tried to block it, scored and everybody would have gone nuts. But I think he thinks he’s found a second career. He was doing a little sideline reporting. He wanted to do that. “Danny ... to have so much individual fame, he deflects it to everybody else. For him to be part of our staff and what he does for us is special. He wanted this to be their day,” he added of the visiting NBA players. “He’s there every day and they are not. That’s how he operates.” ! This, that: Former KU forward Calvin Thompson, who did not play, walked over to the bench and hugged coach Ted Owens before the tip . ... Julian Wright danced wildly as he was introduced . ... Greg Ostertag formed a big ‘O’ with his arms, the fans in turn responding with the same gesture back at him. ...

Darnell Jackson pounded his chest three times as he was introduced. ... Darnell Valentine, who wore No. 1 instead of 14, bowed to the crowd, while Pierce saluted during introductions. ... ! Highlights: Darnell Jackson ran into Paul Pierce, knocking Pierce to the floor. Darnell then stole the ball and raced downcourt for a dunk. Pierce stayed on the floor a few moments, a big smile on his face as he called for a foul. Moments later, Pierce dunked following a steal and glared at Jackson jokingly after hanging on the rim. ... Later, Jackson (11 points, one steal) hammered Xavier Henry as Henry put up a shot. Jackson hugged Henry before Henry’s free throws. ... Mario Chalmers had a dazzling scoop shot on a drive. ... Memphis Grizzlies forward Darrell Arthur fouled Grizzlies teammate Xavier Henry on a three, then got away with a no call after hitting Henry on another three a couple possessions later. ... Julian Wright threw down a vicious one-handed slam after racing baseline. ... Brandon Rush hit for 18 points off 8-of-19 shooting. He hit just one of six from three. ... Marcus Morris had 11 points and Markieff 10. ... Josh Selby hit five of nine shots and had 10 points with four assists and four turnovers. ! In the house: Some former Jayhawks spotted in the crowd: Brett Ballard, Jeremy Case, Eric Chenowith, Lester Earl, Jeff Gueldner, Bill Hougland, David Johanning,

Al Kelley, Matt Kleinmann, Bill Lienhard, Mike Maddox, David Magley, Sean Pearson, Chris Piper, Kevin Pritchard, Mark Randall, Patrick Richey, Bud Stallworth, Calvin Thompson. ! Recruiting: Some recruits in the house included three players who have committed to KU — Zach Peters, 6-9 forward, Prestonwood Christian High, Plano, Texas; Perry Ellis, 6-8 forward, Wichita Heights and Conner Frankamp, 6-0 guard, Wichita North. Also attending: Andrew White, 6-6 forward, Miller School, Chester, Va.; Ioannis Papapetrou, 6-6 forward, Florida Air Academy, Melbourne, Fla.; Julius Randle, 6-8 forward, Prestonwood Christian, Plano; Marquan Botley, 5-10 guard, Prestonwood Christian. ! Coaches: Former KU coach Larry Brown and Ted Owens both talked to their teams during timeouts. They were coaching a bit in this exhibition. Owens called a first-half timeout to stop a rally. He also called time before Mario Chalmers’ game-tying three. “He was out of timeouts, you know. Bill told me we had college rules, so he was two over the limit. We really won,” Brown joked. “He (Owens) told the players 23 years he spent here 19 as head coach. He had tears talking to everybody about his love for the school. Ted Owens had a lot to do with this program. To see his feelings about it, it’s pretty remarkable. But he wanted to beat my butt (in game), I can tell you that.”

guys and the coaches,” he added, modestly changing the subject from his shot to the overall experience. There were plenty of stars Saturday: ! Memphis Grizzlies guard Xavier Henry scored 23 points off 8-of-13 shooting. ! Oklahoma City Thunder center Cole Aldrich grabbed 19 rebounds to go with 14 points. ! Thunder teammate Nick Collison came close to a triple double with 14 points, 10 assists and seven boards. ! Toronto forward Julian Wright had several vicious dunks en route to 14 points. ! St. Louis businessman Ryan Robertson looked like a guy who plays a lot of city league basketball. He scored 15 points off 6-of-8 shooting. He had five assists and hit 3-of-5 threes. The main storyline had to be the return of Pierce, who after winning 44 games against no losses in Allen during his three-year KU career, brought his A-game. “I do remember at halftime, he said, ‘Look I’ve never lost a game in here. I don’t want to experience one,’’’ Blue team coach Larry Brown said.

“Now I’m 55-0-1,” Pierce said, his math off just a bit. The 33-year-old Pierce said he had a blast during his weekend stay in Lawrence. “It’s fun to be here around my old teammates and reflect on my memories,” Pierce said. “When I got here (at 3 p.m., Friday) I walked the campus, saw some of my old classes and where I stayed, saw some of the new things they’ve added on. It brought back a lot of memories.” He said he felt honored Self — who hosted a party for the former players Friday night — invited him back. “I didn’t hesitate to tell him, ‘Yes,’’’ Pierce said. “It was a no-brainer. I’ve been wanting to come back. “I mentioned to coach I think we should have something like this again to where we get together. This is a family type program. The guys that come back ... they stay in touch. I still stay in touch with Ryan Robertson. I talk to Mario (Chalmers, in NBA). We have that relationship because we are Jayhawks. It’s beautiful. Other schools don’t do this around the country to where guys come back. This is a special

place. Coach said any time we can, come back. I plan on coming back a lot more than I have in the past. You don’t truly realize how special this place is until you step back away from it and you see it again. It’s unbelievable.” Self said he noticed Pierce wipe away a tear during the pre-game video introductions of all the players. Pierce seemed to really enjoy a ‘Pop-up’ video played during the second half, which delighted the sellout crowd of 16,300. The video showed Pierce hoisting the 2008 NBA championship trophy after he was named MVP against the Lakers. “It’s the same, it’s just a lot louder,” Pierce said of the fieldhouse today compared to his playing days (1996-98). I was on the bench and could barely hear coach Brown in the timeouts. It was that loud. “I told coach Self I’d have stayed four or five years in school if it was like this in ‘95,” Pierce added with a laugh, referring to fieldhouse improvements after the title in ‘08. “They have all the amenities I’m sure the players all enjoy, thanks to Mario.”

Chiefs, Chargers look to fix turnover issues CHIEFS CAPSULE

By Bernie Wilson Associated Press Sports Writer

SAN DIEGO — As disappointing as it was to commit four turnovers and lose to Tom Brady and the New England Patriots, the San Diego Chargers can at least tell themselves that things aren’t as bad as they are with the Kansas City Chiefs. A season after ending the Chargers’ run of four straight AFC West titles, the Chiefs (0-2) are a mess, burdened by blown knees, blunders and blowouts. They’ve lost a high-profile player to a torn left anterior cruciate ligament in each of the last three games. It started with tight end Tony Moeaki in their exhibition finale, then continued with Pro Bowl safety Eric Berry in the opener and All-Pro running back Jamaal Charles in last week’s debacle in Detroit. Each is K.C. AT lost for the SAN DIEGO year. They’ve done a When: 3:05 p.m. lousy job today taking Where: San Diego of care of the TV: CBS (cable ball, havchs. 5, 13,205) ing comLine: Chargers by mitted nine 141⁄2 turnovers already, against only two takeaways. That’s why it’s no surprise the Chiefs were routed 41-7 at home by Buffalo then 48-3 by the Lions. Now they’ve got to travel for today’s game against the Chargers (1-1), who have turnover issues of their own but did manage to tidy up a few messes and win their opener against Minnesota. The Bolts are still somewhat miffed at Kansas City for knocking them off what they think is their rightful perch atop the AFC West, and irritated at themselves for going

KANSAS CITY CHIEFS QUARTERBACK MATT CASSEL, LEFT, and San Diego Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers hope to take better care of the ball today when the Chiefs and Chargers square off in San Diego. The two teams are the worst in the NFL in turnover margin through two weeks. only 3-3 in the division and missing the playoffs last year. The Chiefs have been so awful going back even to their last two games of 2010 that their division title seems like a mirage. “I just want to refrain from really making judgments out of a lot of things right now until, you know, we get a little further down the road,” coach Todd Haley said. “Everybody on this team needs to play better, starting with the quarterback, and he knows that. He’s excited about the challenge and that’s what we’re going to do. But it’s not just him. It’s not just anybody.” So that would seem to indicate that it’s everybody, although Matt Cassel is an easy culprit after throwing four interceptions and losing a fumble in two games. Last year, he was picked off only seven times.

“I think the No. 1 thing we haven’t done this year that we did last year was take care of the football,” Cassel said. “It starts with me. If you’re in the minus column at the end of the day, you’re going to end up with an L. That alone will help this team.” San Diego’s Philip Rivers can feel his pain. Rivers also has been picked off four times and lost a fumble. Turnovers ruined any chance the Chargers had against the Patriots, and Rivers had three of them. In two games, the Chargers have six turnovers and one takeaway. The Chargers and Chiefs can talk all they want about trying to limit turnovers, but they still have to do something about it. Asked what he can do, Rivers said: “Don’t throw it to them. That’s it. It’s that simple. Don’t throw the ball. For the most part, I don’t throw it

Defenses having tough time keeping pace with offenses By Barry Wilner

coming flag football. Coaches trying to figure out how to stop those record-setting offenses aren’t quite so cheeky. They’re too busy fighting to keep up. Through two weeks, a record 1,502 points and 172 touchdowns have been scored. Of course, some came on special teams or returns by the defense (15 TDs overall). Still, most offenses have been unstoppable, particularly in the air, with 15,771 yards passing through Week 2 — also a record. At his current pace, Tom Brady would throw for about 8,000 yards, nearly 3,000 above Dan Marino’s NFL mark. And rookie Cam Newton has been right there with Brady in a stunning display of precociousness. “The league is going to more pass-oriented offenses,” Super Bowl MVP Aaron Rodgers said. “I guess St. Louis did a number of no-huddle drives (Monday night). We’ve done some as well. The Patriots like to spread people out and Brady’s been throwing the ball all over the place. “I read something last night that five quarterbacks were on pace to break Marino’s record, with Brady on pace for 7,500 yards or something crazy like that. That’s the trend in the NFL.” The trend has been caused by a variety of reasons, most notably rules changes through the years. Nearly every change that doesn’t have to do with player safety — and even some of those — has benefited the offense. Defenders can’t bump receivers beyond five yards from the line of scrimmage. They must get turned around

— Buffalo Bills linebacker Andra Davis toward the line on passes if they want to put their hands up to knock down a throw. They are limited in how they can use their hands to take on blockers, who are less limited in that area than they once were. Quarterbacks are more protected than ever, especially on where they can and can’t be touched — stay away from the head, neck and knees — and they have the freedom to ground the ball from anywhere outside the pocket without being penalized. Alterations to the definition of a defenseless player and the elimination of launching at an opponent, both significant and wise moves by the NFL to cut down on illegal hits and injuries, have made defenders gun-shy at times, too. “Honestly, I think they’re making it too easy for the offense,” said Bills linebacker Andra Davis, a 10-year veteran. “People might think I’m crazy, they might think I’m just complaining, but you can’t touch a guy 5 yards (downfield). The really good ones, you can’t touch past 4 yards. “Quarterbacks, they’re big and strong, so you can’t just bring them down any kind of way. If you go in and try to hit them and you’re timid, and they don’t go down, and they complete a pass, it’s first down. “You’ve got all these big fines guys are thinking about. What’s a defenseless receiver? Are you supposed to let them catch the ball first and then tackle them?” Ask anyone from the other

side of the ball, of course, and they call Davis’ comments sour grapes. On Davis’ team alone, the turn toward more efficient offense is most pronounced: Buffalo leads the league with 79 points. It scored 87 in its first five games last year. The lockout has had a profound effect on defenses, particularly those that run complicated schemes. That’s pushed offenses even further ahead in the early part of the schedule. “We’ve got to pick it up across the board, across the NFL,” Chargers safety Eric Weddle said of all defenses. “You can look at all the best defenses last year and they’re not playing very good. But it takes time. Just like anything, you don’t jell and become a great defense over six, seven weeks.” Especially when you are facing great offenses who already have their acts together. But here’s a scary thought, courtesy of Saints quarterback Drew Brees: “I feel like there’s plenty more left out there. I walk out from both of those games feeling like there were opportunities left out there and things I could have done better. I don’t think we’ve scratched the surface yet.” Chargers QB Philip Rivers, though, doesn’t expect the offensive onslaught to last through December. “Usually throughout the season it goes in waves,” he said. “I don’t think anybody expects it to be that type of yardage for 16 weeks.” Teammate Weddle agrees. “If one guy doesn’t do it, a great quarterback is going to find him and find the open zone or open man if that guy’s not doing his job,” Weddle said. “We’ll get it right, though. It’s a long season.” For most defenses, it already has been a long season.

to the other team very often. Here in the first two, they’ve gotten four of them. Two of them, I can’t say were unlucky, but a little unfortunate. The other two, they’re poor throws. Both of them are down inside the 30 going in.” The Chargers have also trailed by double digits in the first half of both their games. They rallied against the Vikings to win, 24-17, but ran aground against the Patriots. Again, Rivers has a simple answer. “Score. Score sooner,” he said. “You never like to be playing catch-up. It can change the game plan, obviously depending on where you are in the game, and it can make it tough on the defense and both sides of the ball.” Now the Chargers will get a shot at a team with more problems, plus a chance to redeem a mediocre performance in last year’s AFC West.

The Chiefs stunned the Chargers in the 2010 opener in Kansas City, and San Diego never had as much as a share of the division lead the rest of the way. San Diego got a bit of revenge when it beat the Chiefs, 31-0, on Dec. 12, a game Cassel missed after having an emergency appendectomy. Two weeks later, though, the Chargers tanked at Cincinnati and were eliminated from playoff contention.

On the girls side, junior Grace Morgan paced the Lions with a 16:44 and a 67thplace finish, but it wasn’t the PR she wanted going into the race. Last season, she ran Rim Rock in 16:30. “I think I held back a little

FSHS XC CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1B

Coming into the race, Anderson said he felt tired from the crazy week and the preparation for Homecoming. The coaches told him to just run without worrying about his time or place. Anderson became the first FSHS runner to ever break 16:00 at Rim Rock. Going into the race with no expectations seemed to work well. “Maybe we’ll try it a few more times,” Anderson said. Free State senior Kamp Wiebe was next for the Fire-

more than I should have,” Morgan said. The Lions girls finished in 22nd place out of 27 teams. Morgan said the end of the race was better than the beginning because the girls were elbow-to-elbow and fighting for position at the start. As the race progressed, the runners spread apart and opened up more room on the path. “It’s hard because you’re all packed together,” Morgan said about the first half of the course. “It’s a different race.” Senior Michala Ruder was

the second Lion to finish, coming in 77th at 16:53. LHS coach Brian Anderson was iffy about the results, with some runners doing well and the others not so well. The biggest bright spot of the day was junior Chester Lewis, who stepped up from JV to run the Varsity race. He ran an 18:04, which was a monster improvement from his previous time of 19:40, a personal record at the time. Lawrence will participate in the Sunflower League Meet in two weeks at Rim Rock.

birds at 16:40, good for 40th place individually. On the girls side, senior Lynn Robinson said she wasn’t tired before the race. It was during the race that got her. There were 186 girls in the Girls 4K Gold Varsity race and that meant better competition. Robinson lost some confidence when she wasn’t in the front pack like usual and hit a wall in the middle of the race. Still, she finished in 18th place and set a new personal record. “It didn’t feel like a 15:46 when I was running,” she said of her time. The FSHS girls finished in

11th place out of 27 teams. Molly McCord was the second Firebird to finish, coming in 54th place with a 16:30. FSHS coach Steve Heffernan said the team’s success came from a new training regimen. On Tuesdays, the team goes to Fall Creek, a place with bigger hills than Rim Rock. It gave the team confidence this week and will most likely do the same in two weeks when the Sunflower League meet takes place at Rim Rock. “This year,” Heffernan said, “that training run has probably made the biggest difference.”

An electrifying debut First-time novelist’s slim coming-of-age tale explodes off the page

Autumn Ahlin, third-grader, By Tirdad Derakhshani Lawrence The Philadelphia Inquirer “‘Super Fudge’ by Judy Bloom. My teacher is reading PHILADELPHIA — Justin it to us.” Torres is living the first-time novelist’s ultimate fantasy: His stunning debut, the slim, sparse, poetic semiautobiographical coming-of-age story “We the Animals,” which was released Aug. 30, has been met with universal acclaim. Such is the love pouring Torres’ way that publisher Houghton Mifflin Harcourt has sent forth the 31-yearold author on a 20-city tour to promote the book. It’s a Kevin Klaw remarkable move, even for microbiologist, established authors, and esLawrence pecially in this economy. “‘Catch-22’ by Joseph Heller. The buzz has been electric. The protagonist is in the air Otherwise stuffy critics force during World War II, are doing verbal cartwheels. and he tries many ways to Slick magazines’ otherwise get out of the service.” slender book review pages are teeming with flights of extravagant, fanciful praise. “We the Animals” ‘‘rumbles with lyric dynamite,” says Esquire. “A gorgeous, howling coming-of-age novel that will devour your heart,” proclaims Vanity Fair. “It makes you re-examine what it means to love and to hurt,” posits Oprah’s ever-solicitous mag, O. Torres finds it all extraordinary. And amusing. “I’ve just been like trying to handle Ann Sorebo, it all. ... I never expected any retired, of it in my wildest dreams,” Lawrence he says, on the phone after a “I’m in between books.

Some of my It’s a fast pace after the six friends have suggested new years it took Torres to write authors I may try.” “We the Animals.” At 125 pages, the novel is slim. But it packs a serious punch: Torres’ meticulously composed prose is coiled so tight, so compact, and so precise that it explodes off the page.

Write poetry?

Made up of short fragments gathered under enigmatic chapter titles, “We the Animals” is “more like looking through a photo album than it is a traditional novel,” Torres says. Based in large part on the author’s life, “We the Animals” follows the trials and tribulations of a young, mixed-race, lower-middleclass couple — he’s Puerto Rican, she’s white — who married in their teens and who are struggling to raise three sons. Narrated by the sensitive, intelligent youngest son, the novel chronicles how the parents’ passionate if volatile bond with each other and with their boys often turns destructive. And it shows in heartbreaking detail how the unnamed narrator begins to feel increasingly alienated from his father and brothers as he discovers his budding homosexuality. Torres insists that while the fictional family closely mirrors his own, most of the events in the novel are either fabricated or heavily drama-

BAGGAGE CLAIMS

Chicago Tribune

CHICAGO — On Friday, Feb. 13, 1863, while the Civil War raged on, the Chicago Tribune ran a front-page story on the wedding of Mercy Lavinia Warren Bump to Charles Stratton, better known as General Tom Thumb. Why did their wedding warrant such attention? Why did their guest list include not only members of the day’s high society, but also President and Mrs. Abraham Lincoln? Because the couple were tiny people with perfect proportions — Stratton stood 40 inches high and Bump 32 inches — and, as such, fascinated the world. The Tribune article recounts that the crowd of revelers surrounding Grace Church in New York City blocked traffic for four blocks and numbered about “5,000 persons.” The president and his wife were unable to attend; they invited the Thumbs to the White House months later. But despite this celebrity, not much is known about Mrs. Tom Thumb today. It was this dichotomy that set author Melanie Hauser, whose pen name is Melanie Benjamin, on the path to writing her newest novel, “The Autobiography of Mrs. Tom Thumb.” “I was looking up famous women in the 19th century

tized, especially the disturbing final chapters. Torres says he’s especially nervous about a particular stop on his book tour: his hometown, Baldwinsville, a rural enclave near Syracuse, N.Y. Won’t it feel like a conquering hero’s triumphant return home? Torres, who lives in San Francisco and teaches writing at Stanford University as a two-year Wallace Stegner Fellow, pauses for a few beats. Is he relishing the moment to come? Or dreading it? Both, says Torres, whose life as a gay Latino high school student in an otherwise white town (“we were the only Puerto Ricans for a 30-mile radius”) wasn’t exactly picture-perfect. Torres, who has a Puerto Rican father and an Italian-Irish mother, faced a great deal of cruelty at the hands of his peers. “I don’t feel like the place was particularly kind to me,” he says. “It was fairly obvious to lots of people I was queer.

New novel examines life of tiny celebrity Kevin Hicks, insurance claims adjuster, Fort Worth, Texas “‘In My Time’ by Dick Cheney. He had four decades in politics, so it’s long. I’m just getting to the part where he ran for Congress.”

Poet’s Showcase

Mercy Lavinia Warren Bump and Charles Stratton marrying in 1863. on the Internet, and one list had the name Lavinia Warren,” Hauser said. “As soon as I started discovering how very famous she was in her time and yet we don’t know about her, I became intrigued with her story.” Stratton — or Thumb — was already very famous when he met Bump in January 1863, while she was making her debut at the American Museum. Their celebrity was such that they toured the world as the Tom Thumb Company from 1863 to 1878 and traveled with Barnum’s circus in 1881. Hauser’s book describes Bump’s life from her first memories to her husband’s death. This is Hauser’s second historical novel. Her first was 2010’s best-selling “Alice I Have Been,” about the girl who was Lewis Carroll’s

muse for “Alice in Wonderland.” Being a writer, though, is something Glen Ellyn, Ill.based Hauser, 48, discovered only about a decade ago. “I actually started out in theater,” Hauser said. “Then, when I was in my late 30s, a friend of mine said she always thought I would be a writer. ... I was always a reader; I always had a book in my hand. Her comment just started a little fire under me to see if I could be a writer.” It turned out that she could. She began by writing a parenting column for a now-defunct west suburban magazine. She wrote short stories and contemporary novels about a superhero mom, some of which were published by Penguin, before finding her way to historical fiction — all the while using her theater training. “I tend to write in the first person,” Hauser said. “I don’t want to limit myself to that always, but it is where I feel most comfortable. I look at it as channeling a voice and inhabiting a person on the page now instead of on the stage. I really try to use everything that I learned while acting; observing life, observing people and creating a back story in my writing.” Unlike other historical fiction writers who pride themselves on their research, Hauser uses facts only as a skeleton for the story. “For me the joy of writing

SHAWNA TRARBACH, waste reduction and recycling specialist, seals a drum of propane bottles at the Douglas County Household Hazardous Waste Facility. Douglas County residents are able to deliver unwanted garden, household and automotive chemicals by appointment. Call 832-3030 and arrange a drop-off time. The staff will provide directions.

Fall cleaning: Time to clean the garden shed or garage

A

few weeks ago, I was reminded of a wonderful resource in our community when I visited the Household Hazardous Waste Collection Facility. The trip was my first, although it was long overdue, and the ease of it all made me wonder why I waited so long. Before you start wondering what sort of hazardous waste I keep around my house, I can explain. Buried in the back of the garden shed were a few long-forgotten garden chemicals. Some, like the hot pepper spray, were still there because they failed to do what they claimed. Other products, like fungicide for control of black spot on roses, were set aside years ago when I replaced the plants with a resistant variety. Aside from the pesticides, I had some of the facility’s most popular item: cans of old paint. The paint was from the days when I liked to add a little self-expression to terra cotta planters. I also had stain that was once used on a homemade wooden plant rack more than a decade ago. Rather than store the pesti-

commuters and people who just can’t get here during the week,” Hogan says. “Our latest appointment during the week is 6:30.” Appointments are necessary because Hogan and the other staff have additional responsibilities. With appointments, staff can schedule 20 to 30 drop-offs in a four-hour period, thus freeing up the rest of their day to work on other assignments. Maintaining regular hours while offering smithjen@ksu.edu evening and weekend time slots would require additional staff and increase the operating costs cides, paints and stain any longer, of the facility.

could end up with a fire in the truck or at the landfill. We really want to keep liquids out of the landfill.” In addition to pesticides, paints and stains, the facility accepts automotive products, household cleaning products, hobby supplies and a lot of miscellaneous items like fertilizers, lighter fluid, pool chemicals and mercury thermometers. The items are listed on their website and in a brochure available at City Hall. You can also call the Household Hazardous Waste Facility Staff at 832-3030. New to me was the product re-use program. When items like fertilizer or paint are still good for use, the items are set aside. Douglas County residents can pick up re-use items for free, although an appointment is still required for “shopping.” About 20 percent of the items dropped off at the facility go back out this way. Waste items that cannot be reused are sorted and classified. Most are picked up by a contracting company for incineration or recycling.

Although the facility is operated by the City of Lawrence, it is open to all Douglas County residents. Douglas County provides the land and space for the facility. Trarbach notes that every county in Kansas is served by a facility even though there is not necessarily a facility in every county. “Riley County is a good example. They serve 10 or 12 counties, I think,” Trarbach says. “Sometimes, especially in more rural counties, they will just have a trailer or a drop-off day once a month. We are really lucky here.” Hogan says they get a little excitement once in a while. “When we get ether — just opening it can cause it to explode — so we have to call the bomb squad and have them blow it up.” I’m pretty excited, too — with less old stuff sitting around, I have room for new garden tools. — Jennifer Smith is the Horticulture Extension Agent for K-State Research and Extension in Douglas County.

Kovel’s Antiques: Collectors value stories behind small startups By Terry Kovel

Antique collectors who do research know that important companies grow from small companies with very talented founders who solved both personal and business problems. It is well known that Josiah Wedgwood, the 18th-century potter, was refused a job in the family business because he was disabled. But he worked hard, developed special glazes and shapes, and eventually went into the business and made it famous and financially successful. Richard and Betty James spent $500 to start making Slinky toys in the 1940s. Betty had six children and little business experience when her husband left her in 1960 to join a religious

group in Bolivia. She ran the business, became CEO of the company, developed new products and made Slinky one of the most successful toys of the 20th century. Appolonia Margarete Steiff, born in 1847 and crippled by polio as a child, used a wheelchair for the rest of her life. She went to school, took sewing classes and learned to operate a sewing machine backwards with her stronger arm. She made some elephant-shaped pincushions as a gift for friends and then to sell to others. She realized they were being used as toys, so she started making large toy elephants. The company grew with her ideas and designs, and by 1893 she was issuing a catalog. Many relatives joined the company and helped it become the

huge Steiff toy company still working today. Margarete made hundreds of different animal toys, even some based on the imaginary characters of comics and movies. Felix the Cat was a cartoon character in a 1919 short film called “Feline Follies.” He soon became the star of a King Features comic strip and a TV cartoon series, and was made into toys. A Steiff Felix toy was made in 1927. He had a white face, not a black one, and did not sell well. Today, as a very rare Steiff toy, he is worth more than $4,000. Q: I have several Dunbar furniture pieces made by Edward Wormley. They were originally done in a blond finish called “bleached mahogany.” My

parents had two of the pieces refinished in a dark shade using Dunbar stains. I am debating restaining the other pieces. I have seen redone Wormley in high-end shops. The old finish has a brittle yellow quality caused by nitrocellulose lacquer. Is it OK to remove the lacquer? Will it destroy the value? A: If the refinishing is well done and closely resembles the dark finish used by Dunbar, it probably will not be a problem. Fifties furniture like yours was made in quantity and is bought today for its decorative value. If the lacquer is discolored, it would be a plus to remove it. Don’t sand it, because you will remove some of the wood, and this would lower the value. Fifty years from

now, Wormley’s designs may not be as easy to find, and your refinishing may be questioned. Q: Please help me figure out what my 9-inch fruit jar is worth. It’s a black amethyst glass jar with a porcelain-lined screw cap. The front of the jar is embossed “Mason’s Patent Nov 30th 1858” and there’s an embossed Maltese cross on the back. I bought this jar at auction years ago. A: Your jar is most likely a fake made 40 or more years ago. Original Mason’s Patent jars with an embossed cross were not made in black amethyst glass, and the cross is on the front of originals, not the back. Still, repros as old as yours are selling, as reproductions, for around $70.

Parents should try to accommodate difficult daughter Dear Annie: A few years back, you helped me with my daughter. Now I need your help again. My husband and I have not seen our daughter in almost a year. We are visiting our son for Thanksgiving, and he invited our daughter and her family to join us. She refused, saying her husband prefers to have dinner with just his immediate family and it’s the only time all of them can sit down together. Her son and stepson are both 15. I know they spend other nights together for dinner. She offered instead to meet us halfway between her house and my son’s (a 90-minute trip). My husband and I think that meeting my daughter for an hour for lunch is not exactly quality time with our grandson. I also told her that we had to get back in time for dinner because we are meeting my new daughter-in-law’s family. We offered to visit her any other weekend, but she said every weekend is filled with football and band activities. We told her we’d be happy to see a game and watch the band, but she kept finding other reasons why we shouldn’t come. We get the impression she doesn’t want to see us. It is not like we stay with her. We stay in a hotel,

Dear Crying: Your daughter is a difficult person who is never going to be the warm, loving, accepting child you want. Your best response is to be as accommodating as you can manage in order to see your grandson. She is not going to make it easy. When the demands are too much to handle, try not to become an-

‘Pan Am’ ready for takeoff Set in 1963, “Pan Am” (9 p.m., ABC, ) certainly takes itself seriously. So much so that it often borders on parody. You get the feeling that its creators, Jack Orman (“ER”), Thomas Schlamme (“The West Wing”) and Nancy Hult Ganis (“Akeelah and the Bee”) were too high-minded to have ever watched “Airplane: The Movie.” Taking place during the infancy of transcontinental jet travel, “Pan Am” leans rather heavily on the symbolism of the airline stewardess as a new breed of woman without borders and without limits. At one point, an airline co-pilot makes rather pretentious bar talk about these gorgeous air hostesses as symbols of Darwinian “natural selection.” ‘‘Pan Am” packs a whole lot of backstory into its first 45 minutes, but it does so with so much self-important majesty that you often get the feeling this show is going nowhere. Almost every scene dissolves into some musical montage, accompanied by either period pop songs or a grand, stirring background score that screams, “This is important!” to the audience. I was often reminded of James Cameron’s “Titanic,” another “voyage as metaphor” bit of entertainment that, despite its blockbuster status, was a staggering bore. To be fair, this first episode offers so much information, it’s bound to be a tad overwhelming. Christina Ricci stars as Maggie, a Greenwich Village bohemian who dons a girdle and uniform for the money. French stewardess Colette (Karine Vanasse) is shocked to see an old paramour traveling with his wife and son. Flashbacks reveal that Kate (Kelli Garner) has been recruited as a spy by U.S. intelligence. And that she, in turn, recruited her pretty younger sister, Laura (Margot Robbie), as a Pan Am hostess after Laura got cold feet at her wedding. The flashback to Laura’s runaway bride moment sums up everything wrong with this show. It’s supposed to seem spontaneous, rollicking and liberating. Instead it’s a predictable, forced and meticulously choreographed scene. Much like the rest of “Pan Am.” As “Boardwalk Empire” (8 p.m., HBO) enters its second season, Nucky Thompson (Steve Buscemi) is in trouble. And so is “Boardwalk Empire.” While still smart, rewarding and beautifully produced, “Empire” doesn’t seem as fun this time around. For starters, all of the major female characters, who were so rebellious and even dangerous in season one, have been domesticated by events. But hey, the Roaring ‘20s have just begun, and that can’t last forever. I just hope viewers stick around.

U.S. disbelief persists, deepens By Charles J. Hanley Associated Press

NEW YORK — Tucked between treatises on algae and prehistoric turquoise beads, the study on page 460 of a long-ago issue of the U.S. journal Science drew little attention. “I don’t think there were any newspaper articles about it or anything like that,” the author recalls. But the headline on the 1975 report was bold: “Are We on the Brink of a Pronounced Global Warming?” And this article that coined the term may have marked Brennan Linsley/AP Photo the last time a mention of “global warming” didn’t set ATOP ROUGHLY TWO MILES OF ICE, technician Marie McLane off an instant outcry of angry launches a data-transmitting weather balloon at Summit Station, a remote research site operated by the U.S. National denial.

reviewed studies to claim all is wrong. And they carom from one explanation to another for today’s warming Earth: jet contrails, sunspots, cosmic rays, natural cycles. “Ninety-eight percent of the world’s climate scientists say it’s for real, and yet you still have deniers,” observed former U.S. Rep. Sherwood Boehlert, a New York Republican who chaired the House’s science committee. Christiana Figueres, Costa Rican head of the U.N.’s postKyoto climate negotiations, finds it “very, very perplexing, this apparent allergy that there is in the United States. Why?” The Australian scholar Hamilton sought to explain why in his 2010 book, “Requiem for a Species: Why We Resist the Truth About Climate Change.” In an interview, he said he found a “transformation” from the 1990s and its industry-financed campaign, to an America where climate denial “has now become a marker of cultural identity in the ‘angry’ parts of the United States.” “Climate denial has been incorporated in the broader movement of right-wing populism,” he said, a movement that has “a visceral loathing of environmentalism.” An in-depth study of a decade of Gallup polling finds statistical backing for that analysis. On the question of whether they believed the effects of global warming were already happening, the percentage of self-identified Republicans or conservatives answering “yes” plummeted from almost 50 percent in 2007-2008 to 30 percent or less in 2010, while liberals and Democrats remained at 70 percent or more, according to the study in this spring’s Sociological Quarterly. A Pew Research Center poll last October found a similar left-right gap. The drop-off coincided with the election of Democrat Barack Obama as president and the Democratic effort in Congress, ultimately futile, to impose government caps on industrial greenhouse emissions. Boehlert, the veteran Republican congressman, noted that “high-profile people with an ‘R’ after their name, like Sarah Palin and Michelle Bachmann, are saying it’s all fiction. Pooh-poohing the science of climate change feeds into their basic narrative that all government is bad.” The quarterly study’s authors, Aaron M. McCright of Michigan State University and Riley E. Dunlap of Oklahoma State, suggested climate had joined abortion and other explosive, intractable issues as a mainstay of America’s hardening left-right gap. “The culture wars have thus taken on a new dimension,” they wrote.

Voter ID laws target rarely occurring voter fraud By Suzanne Gamboa Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Several states adopted new laws last year requiring that people show a photo ID when they come to vote even though the kind of election fraud that the laws are intended to stamp out is rare. Even supporters of the new laws are hard pressed to come up with large numbers of cases in which someone tried to vote under a false identify. “I’ve compared this to the snake oil salesman. You got a cold? I got snake oil. Your foot aches? I got snake oil,” said election law expert Justin Levitt, who wrote “The T r u t h A b o u t It doesn’t V o t e r seem to mat- F r a u d ” for The ter what the Brennan problem is, Center (voter) ID is for Jusbeing sold as tice. “It oesn’t the solution to dseem to a whole bunch m a t t e r of things it what the can’t possibly p r o b l e m is, (voter) solve.” ID is being sold — Election law expert as the solution to Justin Levitt, who a whole wrote “The Truth b u n c h About Voter Fraud” of things for The Brennan it can’t Center for Justice possibly solve.” Kansas, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Wisconsin have passed laws this year that allow voters without the required photo ID to cast provisional ballots, but the voters must return to a specific location with that ID within a certain time limit for their ballots to count. Indiana and Georgia already had such laws. Other states have photo ID laws too, but provide different way to verify a voter’s identity without a photo ID. Texas and South Carolina are awaiting approval for their laws from the Justice Department because of those are among that states with a history of voting rights suppression and discrimination. Indiana’s law, passed in 2005, was upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court in 2008. Levitt combed through 250 cases of alleged election law fraud cited in legal briefs filed in that challenge. He found only nine instances involving a person allegedly voting in someone else’s name, possibly fraudulently or possibly because of an error when the person signed in at the voting booth. “They identified a lot of

fraud, but very, very, very, very, very, very little of it could be prevented by identification at the polls,” Levitt said. The remainder involved vote buying, ballot-box stuffing, problems with absentee ballots or ex-convicts voting even though laws bar them from doing so. Over the same seven-year time period covered by the cases Levitt reviewed, 400 million votes were cast in general elections. “If there was evidence of this, we’d know about it,” said Elisabeth MacNamara, president of the League of Women Voters. Her organization, which has affiliates in every state, knows voter registrars, attends election meetings, observes and works at polls, and is intimately aware of how the election system works. Hans von Spakovsky, a senior legal fellow at the Heritage Foundation, a conservative Washington think tank, said one reason there is scant evidence of voter fraud is no one checks ID at the polls. He cited a mid-1980s grand jury report that described how, over a 14-year period, “crews” were recruited in Brooklyn, N.Y., to vote multiple times in multiple elections at various polling places, using the names of real voters, dead voters, voters who had moved away and fictitious voters. “Nobody’s saying it’s large scale,” but such fraud could make a difference in close races, said von Spakovsky, who led the Justice Department’s civil rights division under President George W. Bush. The laws and other voting restrictions have riled civil rights leaders and voter protection groups. Some groups say the new state laws are the equivalent of poll taxes and literacy tests that effectively kept minorities out of voting booths. They argue that blacks, Hispanics, senior citizens, people with disabilities and the poor are more likely to lack the required photo ID. But they also contend others could be disenfranchised: voters who fail to bring ID with them; students whose school IDs are deemed unacceptable; people whose driver’s licenses have expired; women whose driver’s licenses do not reflect their married names or new addresses. “We basically see these voter ID restriction laws as a solution without a problem,” said Judith Browne Dianis, co-director of The Advancement Project, a civil rights group.

Obama’s likability helping keep him afloat “

By Kristen Wyatt

Associated Press

DENVER — People like Christine Alonzo are keeping President Barack Obama afloat and giving his political team hope that he can win reelection despite high unemployment and sour attitudes about his policies and the country’s future. Alonzo volunteered for Obama during the 2008 campaign. A few months after Obama’s victory, she lost her job. She’s still looking for work. Instead of blaming Obama for the economic crisis, she’s volunteering full time to help him capture a second term. “It’s tough out there,” Alonzo says. But, the 43-yearold adds, “I don’t think our president’s had enough time to get us back to where we need to be.” She still likes him even though she’s not hot about the state of the country. “He’s got the intelligence, the drive, to get this country back on track.” This is a factor any Republican challenger must consider: Public opinion polls routinely show that Americans like the president personally even though they don’t agree with his policies, even if hurt by them. People who have lost their jobs or homes during

There are a lot of people out there who like the president, who think he is a good, decent person who is trying hard.”

— Mo Elleithee, a Democratic strategist Obama’s presidency nonetheless say they want him to succeed and, what’s more, they’re working to help reelect him because of the affinity they feel for him. “A lot has not been accomplished, we know that,” said Kathleen McKevitt of Jerome, Idaho, who lost her job just before Obama took office and has struggled to find full-time work. “That doesn’t mean we don’t like Obama.” It’s a bright spot in an otherwise dreary political environment for the incumbent. There are fears the country may fall back into a recession. The unemployment rate is stuck at a stubbornly high 9.1 percent. Foreclosures are rampant. The effect on Obama’s job-performance rating: They’ve fallen to the mid-40s, a low point. Democrats acknowledge it could be even worse if not for the high marks Obama gets for who he is compared with the low marks for what

he does. “There are a lot of people out there who like the president, who think he is a good, decent person who is trying hard. They may have issues about the economy. They may have issues about the direction of the country. But there are a lot of voters out there who are giving him the benefit of the doubt,” said Mo Elleithee, a Democratic strategist in Washington. “Heading into the election year being well-liked puts him in a good position as he begins to make the contrast with the other side.” A recent Associated PressGfK poll showed that nearly 8 in 10 people considered Obama a likable person, and slightly more than half said he understands the problems of ordinary people. Even

among those who said the United States is headed in the wrong direction, 43 percent had a favorable opinion of the president, 10 points higher than his job approval rating among that group. Obama’s advisers point to his favorability ratings as an asset when the eventual GOP nominee tries to make the case for change in the White House in 2012. “They’re going to tell you that everyone’s left the president, no one likes Obama anymore. They are so totally wrong,” Obama’s national field director, Jeremy Bird, told volunteers in Denver recently. “Yes, people are frustrated with the economy, with jobs. But when they look at the president, the president’s character ... they’re all in support.”
