Rosilyn Wells wants everyone in Lawrence to know her name and face. Many of them soon will. For the next several months Wells will serve as the community’s resource for the Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare, which requires that nearly every American have health insurance and provides tax credits for those who can’t afford it. Wells, the only full-time Affordable Care Act navigator in Lawrence, will work out of Heartland Community Health Center, at 1 Riverfront Plaza, Suite 100, but Wells she’ll help anyone in the area who has questions about the 2010 health care law. With a major piece of it to be unveiled Tuesday — its online health-insurance marketplace — Wells plans to be busy. In addition, Kansas, unlike several other states with Republican-controlled legislatures, has not restricted the activities of its navigators.

depictions of American historic figures, died on Aug. 20 after a long battle with cancer. He was 72. Brothers designed several pieces in the National D-Day Memorial in Bedford, Va., and he contributed to the Korean War Memorial at the National Mall in Washington, D.C. Brothers also did the statue of Gen. Dwight Eisenhower that stands in Statuary Hall in the U.S. Capitol. The one Brothers piece in public view in Lawrence is â&#x20AC;&#x153;From the Ashes,â&#x20AC;? which depicts a man morphing into a phoenix as it rises from the flames of a burning building. The statue is meant to symbolize Lawrenceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rise from the ashes after Quantrillâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Raid during the Civil War, and it stands in front of the visitor center. Many who attended the celebration Sunday took the time to place a flower on â&#x20AC;&#x153;From the Ashes,â&#x20AC;? covering the statue in a multitude of colors. A slideshow played throughout the afternoon, documenting Brothersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; life. There were pictures of him as kid in Eureka, Kan., at his wedding, in his studio, on his motorcycle, in Civil War re-enactment gear and playing washboard in the Alferd Packer Memorial String Band.

favors more liberal candidates for judgeships. The prospect of changes in the judge-selection process come against a backdrop of controversy over whether Kansas schools are being given enough state funding. A threejudge panel ruled earlier this year that the Legislature has failed to live up to its constitutional duty to adequately fund public schools, and ordered an increase of approximately $500 million. The case has been appealed by the state to the Kansas Supreme Court, which will hear oral arguments Oct. 8 and is expected to rule by the end of the year. While changes in the ways judges are selected may not directly affect the current educationfunding case, Bill Rich, a constitutional-law professor at Washburn University, says itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no surprise that the perception among some observers may be that conservatives are trying to put the court on notice. But he added, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think people on the court are likely to be intimidated.â&#x20AC;? Brownbackâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office issued a statement defending his record on school funding and the recent change in selecting judges to the Kansas Court of Appeals. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The changed judicial selection process has allowed two branches of government to be highly involved in vetting the judicial candidates, which was not the case before. The new selection process also gives members of the public a voice in the process, which they did not have before,â&#x20AC;? his office said.

Conservatives angered by court Both school funding and the make-up of the judiciary will be among the main issues when the Legislature meets in January. The current school finance case echoes similar cases in 2005 and 2006, In another room, when the state Supreme friends, family and acquaintances took part in a potluck and clumped together, swapping stories of their pal Jim. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He could go from playing the washboard to doing a sculpture to riding CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1A a motorcycle to sitting at Johnnyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sipping a beer,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m here to help eduCopt said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He just fit in in a lot of different worlds, cate people and answer and he had a range of their questions about the friends across the spec- Affordable Care Act, and trum.

Court, citing the state constitution, said the Legislature had failed to adequately fund schools and ordered legislators to increase funding. That infuriated conservative Republicans and ratcheted up their criticism of the justices. Now the conservative Republicans are in charge and they want to alter the makeup of the court, or the way the court does business. While the selection process for the Court of Appeals already has been changed, the nominatingcommission system remains in place for filling vacancies on the Kansas Supreme Court. Any change in the selection process for the Supreme Court would require a constitutional amendment. Brownback and his allies would like to pass that constitutional amendment, and while it has been approved in the Senate by the required twothirds majority to place the measure on the ballot, it hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t in the House. Short of a constitutional amendment, legislation has been filed in the House to alter the makeup of the appellate courts by reducing the retirement age from 75 to 65, and changing the authority of the Supreme Court.

Politics and the judiciary Cook and other advocates worry that changes in how judges are selected could make courts less impartial, leading to decisions that change the ways schools are funded. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Most of the time, when we have had an increase in school funding, it has come at the direction of the court,â&#x20AC;? Cook said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seem to have a Legislature that funds schools at an adequate level. We need that system to be untouched by politics.â&#x20AC;? Rich, the Washburn University law professor, said voters may not support changing the selection process if it is perceived to be fueled by the school finance lawsuit. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The public might not go along with trying to change the court just in response to such a thing

Because Kansas has elected not to participate in the Affordable Care Actâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Medicaid expansion, an estimated half of Douglas Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 16,000 uninsured residents are expected to continue to go without coverage.

But Senate Vice President Jeff King, R-Independence, who has been a leading advocate for changing the judicial selection system, said any characterization of judicial selection reform being linked to school finance â&#x20AC;&#x153;is just false.â&#x20AC;? And John Robb, an attorney representing the school districts suing the state, said he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe the politics of the Statehouse will affect the outcome of the case. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The school finance system is again unconstitutional and must be fixed,â&#x20AC;? Robb said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am confident that, in the end, the court will do its job and that the Legislature and the governor will respect the courtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decision and do their jobs also. That is our constitutional form of government.â&#x20AC;? Mark Desetti, a lobbyist with the Kansas National Education Association, said he believes the justices on the court will rule on the facts of the case and the Kansas Constitution and not be swayed by the politics in the Statehouse. He said regardless of how the court rules, conservatives are going to fight to change the selection process. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is about abortion politics, this is gun politics,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is about control of all three branches of government.â&#x20AC;? The issues of school funding and judicial selection are bound to be hot topics during next yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gubernatorial race. House Minority Leader Paul Davis, D-Lawrence, who is running for governor, said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Gov. Brownback has aggressively worked to centralize power within his office and weaken our time honored tradition of checks and balances. He has also been adamantly opposed to restoring funding to Kansas public schools. It certainly appears that his plan to politicize the judicial branch is connected to his desire to sidestep the courtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s order to properly fund public education.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Statehouse reporter Scott Rothschild can be reached at 785-423-0668.

In a class of their own

By Micki Chestnut

When she worked in the WIC â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Women, Infants and Children â&#x20AC;&#x201D; clinic at the Lawrence-Douglas County Health Department, Alicia Erickson noticed that a lot of parents were not sure how to tell when their children truly needed emergency medical care. Should they whisk a feverish kid off to the ER in the middle of the night, or give the child some Tylenol and call the doctor in the morning? Wanting to err on the side of caution, far too many bundled up their babies and headed to the hospital only to be told that the problem wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t life-threatening. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of new moms are scared of everything; a lot of people say they go to the emergency room for everything,â&#x20AC;? said Erickson, a United Way of Douglas County AmeriCorps member who served at the Health DepartPlease see HEALTH, page 7A

Senate Vice President Jeff King sent a letter dated Friday to members of a newly appointed budget council that will look at ways to increase funding and improve efficiencies within the state court system.

Lawrence High School ceremony honors alumni achievements By Elliot Hughes ehughes@ljworld.com

There were just a couple of tears shed here and there over the course the Lawrence High School Alumni Associationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hall of Honor ceremony Sunday. But the best feelgood, hold-back-the-tears moment unquestionably came at the end. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I gotta breathe,â&#x20AC;? said Gary Tanner, before he spun around, away from the audience, to collect himself. He stood at the podium with his son, Brady Tanner, a Special Olympian who has trouble speaking. Gary, reading for Brady, turned back around when ready and

Brady Tanner, who graduated in 2001, joined three others in LHSâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2013 Hall of Honor class: U.S. District Judge Monti Belot III, class of 1961; Colorado State Senator Nancy (Knox) Todd, 1966; and U.S. Court of Appeals Judge Sri Srinivasan, 1985.

Empire State Building owner, Potbelly going public By Joseph Pisani AP Business Writer

NEW YORK — Starting this week, you could own a piece of the Empire State Building. Or, if iconic New York skyscrapers aren’t your thing, you could bite into Potbelly, a sandwich chain with more than 280 shops. This week, these and two more companies with familiar names — the owner of budget-friendly clothing store chain Burlington Coat Factory and Re/Max, one of the country’s largest real estate agencies — are expected to sell shares in initial public offerings. A surging stock market is drawing investors to IPOs. This past week, 12 companies went public. That’s the most in one week since November 2007, said data provider Dealogic. And there have been 151 IPOs in the U.S. this year, up 47 percent from a year ago,

said IPO research firm Renaissance Capital. A more active IPO market signals confidence in the economy because buying into IPOs is considered a riskier investment than investing in established companies. Companies that raise money in an IPO can also hire more people and make investments with the cash, helping support economic growth. And when IPOs gain in their first day of trading, that bodes well for other companies that may go public soon, such as automaker Chrysler and Twitter. Investors are closely watching this week’s lineup. “Brand recognition will always foster additional attraction,” says Scott Sweet, a senior managing partner at IPO Boutique, which rates IPOs and invests in them. But worries about a looming government shutdown could hurt demand for up-

Empire State Realty Trust, which owns the Depression-era building, has had a long road to its public debut. The New York company first filed for an

IPO in early 2012, but was set back by shareholder lawsuits. A judge cleared the way for an IPO this spring. Investors may buy the stock just to say they own a piece of the historic building, Sweet said. Millions of tourists each year ascend the 102-story Art

Deco skyscraper’s heights each year to view the city from its observation deck. And investors may clamor for shares of Potbelly after the successful IPO of restaurant chain Noodles & Co. It went public at $18 in June and closed Friday at $44.32.

Dick’s Sporting Goods looks like likely tenant Editor’s Note: These are excerpts from Chad Lawhorn’s Town Talk column, which appears each weekday at LJWorld.com. To sign up for the e-mail edition of Town Talk, go to: ljworld.com/towntalk/ signup/

I

t sure is beginning to look as if Dick’s Sporting Goods is headed for the vacant Sears building on South Iowa Street. In recent days, the building at 2727 Iowa St. has sold and a building permit has been filed at City Hall that contains clues that suggest Dick’s Sporting Goods will be the main tenant for the building. The building permit application doesn’t specifically state that Dick’s is the tenant, but the architect for the property labeled the remodeling project “Dick’s Tenant White Box.” “White box,” for those of you not up on the lingo, is the phrase used to describe a basic remodeling job that creates a clean space for a tenant to begin installing their own shelves, fixtures and furniture. The plans filed at City Hall also show that the 86,000-square-foot building would be divided into three spaces for retailers, with the large anchor space checking in at about 50,400 square feet. That indicates that there will be room for at least two other significant retailers to locate in the building. There was nothing in the filings at City Hall to indicate who those retailers may be. As for the sale of the property, TMD Iowa LLC has purchased the property from California-based Sinay Lawrence Kansas LLC, according to records from the Douglas County Register of Deeds. TMD Iowa, according to records from the Kansas Secretary of State’s office, includes Michael Boyd, a noted commercial real estate developer with Wichita-based Walter Morris Companies. That also lends credence to the idea that Dick’s is headed for the space. Talk in local commer-

data, such differences tend to even out. For what it’s worth, data from the Douglas County Appraiser’s office has the average sale price for all of Douglas County up by about 5.5 percent. More importantly, the appraiser’s office tracks every home sale in the county and then compares the selling price of the house to what the county had the house valued at for taxation purposes. Since about 2008, selling prices of homes have been, on average, about 1 percent to 3 percent lower than the appraised value the county has for the property. But now a shift has occurred with those sales ratios. Thus far in 2013, selling prices are running, on average, 1.3 percent higher than the appraised value that the county has for the property. All these numbers may sound a bit like my wife’s weekly recitation of my chore list — probably good information to have, but I’m not quite sure why. Well, in this case, I can tell you why. If this trend continues, it will put more pressure on the county appraiser’s office to increase the tax value of residential properties across the county. It is still too early to say how values may be adjusted for Jan. 1, 2014, but thus far, the data indicates there is upward pressure. There was a day when we all used to be sound engineers. I don’t know what your sound innovations were when you were growing up, but mine consisted of trying to get my pickup truck’s Wal-Mart-purchased stereo system to play my treasured AC/DC cassette tape as loudly as possible while driving into the high school parking lot. Probably the only thing cooler than the sound coming out of my pickup truck was the mullet behind the steering wheel. I have a feeling that the world of sound engineering has perhaps passed me by. A new Lawrence

business is betting there are lots of folks in my category. Sound Innovations has opened its doors at 1501 W. Sixth St. in the space that used to house offices for Treanor Architects. If you are still confused about where it is, it is next door to the Advance Auto Parts store near Sixth and Florida streets. That makes sense because while many electronics places focus on home stereo and entertainment systems, Sound Innovations focuses on sound systems for your vehicles. That means trucks and cars, certainly, but it also means boats, ATVs, RVs and even tractors. (Fair warning: If you ask me to plow a field while AC/DC’s “Back in Black” is on, it is going to be a funny-looking field.) Tonganoxie resident Dean Allen owns the business, but it is run by his son-in-law Pat Hinrichsen, who was a longtime installer of vehicle sound systems for Lawrence’s Kief’s Audio/ Video. Allen said that as more and more audio places focus on the home theater and sound systems, he and Hinrichsen feel as if there is an opportunity for a business that focuses just on sound systems for vehicles. Allen said that might be particularly true as more people keep their vehicles longer. In addition to sound systems, the retailer also sells and installs car alarms, remote starting systems and Bluetooth integration devices.

NEW YORK — Gasoline prices have fallen steadily throughout September, and drivers should look forward to even cheaper fill-ups in the weeks ahead. The national average price for a gallon of gasoline is now $3.42, down from $3.59 on Sept. 1. The price is the lowest it’s been at this time of year since 2010 and is likely to keep falling. “It’s a layup for me to predict lower prices until Columbus Day weekend,” says Tom Kloza, Chief Oil Analyst at GasBuddy.com and Oil Price Information Service, which tracks retail and wholesale gasoline prices. Wholesale gasoline prices have fallen faster in recent days than pump prices, so drivers can expect to pay even less as the pump prices catch up. Despite the recent drop, the national average is unlikely to fall back to $3.29 per gallon — this year’s low, set in early January — unless the price of oil falls under $100 per barrel, GasBuddy’s Kloza said.

Recent rain a boon for wheat planting Budget

CONTINUED FROM PAGE 3A

By Roxana Hegeman Associated Press

WICHITA â&#x20AC;&#x201D; After years of drought, recent rainfall in far western Kansas has bolstered topsoil moisture conditions along with the hopes of farmers as planting for the 2014 winter wheat crop gets underway across the state. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Overall people have reason to be a lot more pleased, especially those folks in western Kansas,â&#x20AC;? said Aaron Harries, marketing director for the industry group Kansas Wheat. Among those a bit more optimistic about planting wheat in northwest Kansas is Gove farmer Roger Beesley, who was busy Friday dropping off a load of corn

at the local elevator. He expects to begin planting about 1,600 acres of wheat sometime next week. While moisture conditions were not too bad last fall at Beesleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s farm, soil conditions have improved over two years ago. Wheat needs good topsoil moisture conditions in the fall to germinate and grow before winter sets in. With subsoil moisture mostly depleted after the long drought, decent spring rains will also be needed to bring the 2014 crop through to harvest. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think we are going to get it up all right,â&#x20AC;? Beesley said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need rain after we plant and a little help next spring. It is kind of a holistic thing â&#x20AC;&#x201D; you have

to do the whole thing to get a good crop.â&#x20AC;? The National Agricultural Statistics Service reported earlier this week that 13 percent of the wheat had been planted in Kansas, but that number is expected to rise sharply by the time the next update is issued on Monday. Things are â&#x20AC;&#x153;dramatically betterâ&#x20AC;? this fall, although technically much of the western third of Kansas remains in a drought, Harries said. Topsoil moisture conditions were rated by NASS as adequate or surplus across 52 percent of Kansas, with the most subsoil moisture showing up in northwest and west-central Kansas after the re-

cent storm systems that moved through the area, dropping 4 to 5 inches of rain in places. About 70 percent of west-central Kansas is now rated with adequate to surplus topsoil moisture, while about 65 percent of northwest Kansas falls in that category. Even southwest Kansas â&#x20AC;&#x201D; which missed the heavier rains â&#x20AC;&#x201D; is still in better shape with 37 percent adequate to surplus topsoil moisture reported. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Generally, there is a little more optimism at least when you are planting â&#x20AC;&#x201D; because you expect it to come up,â&#x20AC;? said Joe Leibbrandt, Extension agent in Grant County in southwest Kansas.

cymakers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To the extent that it is viewed as an olive branch, I welcome that,â&#x20AC;? King said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;More positive relations between the judicial branch and the legislative branch would be helpful to everyone, especially the people of Kansas.â&#x20AC;? Helen Pedigo, spokeswoman for the judicial branch, said Friday she wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sure whether the council members had received the letter and declined to comment. The courts have felt a budget squeeze since the Great Recession, which started in 2007. Legal filing fees have risen to help fill the gap, but the Supreme Court ordered fur-

loughs in 2010 and 2012. The current judicial branch budget calls for more than $127 million in spending through June 30, 2014. Legislators also approved the budget for fiscal year 2015 with a slight increase to almost $128 million. Both amounts are 3 percent below the $132 million appropriated to the courts in 2013. Salaries account for 96 percent of the judicial branchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spending annually. King said the courtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s budget for 2015 wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t cut from the current spending levels and that legislators didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a funding request in front of them from the courts at the time the budget was settled. He said he expected legislators to revisit the 2015 court budget in light of the recent request made by Nuss.

FROM LEFT, KELSEY HUNTER, AN AMERICORPS WORKER with the Boys and Girls Club of Lawrence, Jolene Croxell, WIC supervisor with the Lawrence-Douglas County Health Department, and Olimpia Tyner, clinic assistant with the Douglas County Health Department, participate in a workshop hosted by the United Way of Douglas County. The participants were being trained to assist low-literacy parents in accessing health care for their children. care system. The Kansas Health Institute reported that in 2008 to 2009, 41,300 children on Kansas Medicaid visited the emergency room. The average cost of each visit was $700 per child, according to the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality. If 50 percent fewer children accessed care at the ER unnecessarily, Kansas Head Started postulated, the result would be a cost savings of $14 million. After seeing outcomes like these, the United Way joined other Douglas County health organizations to promote the use of â&#x20AC;&#x153;What to Do When Your Child Gets Sick. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Last year, Erickson and another AmeriCorps member serving through United Way at Heartland Community

Medical Clinic were trained to teach parents how to use the book. In September, the United Way sponsored a community-wide training opportunity in which 10 of its AmeriCorps members, serving at Heartland Community Medical Clinic, the Willow Domestic Violence Center, CASA, the Health Department, Boys & Girls Club of Lawrence and Kennedy Elementary School, were among those trained to use the book with Douglas County parents. Deborah Boulware Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Neal, project director for the Parent Health Literacy Project through the Kansas Head Start Association, who coordinated the recent training, said the secret to the bookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s success is that it helps raise the health literacy of parents.

ment for a year, focusing on increasing health literacy and health outcomes for patients. But that changed after Erickson gave parents a copy of â&#x20AC;&#x153;What to Do When Your Child Gets Sick,â&#x20AC;? an easy-to-read reference book that gives caregivers clear-cut instructions on how to deal with common pediatric health concerns, from high fevers to nasty coughs. As parents spent 20 minutes going over the book with Erickson, their confidence grew and they felt more comfortable discerning when a health challenge called for the ER, a call to the doctor or just a few daysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; rest. The result? Parents who received â&#x20AC;&#x153;What to Do When Your Child Gets Sick,â&#x20AC;? complete with a 20-minute overview on how to use the book, reported 55 percent fewer unnecessary visits to the emergency room and 46 percent fewer unnecessary visits to the doctor. They also said that they missed 56 percent fewer days of work because of a childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s illness and that their children missed 64 percent fewer school days because of illness or injury, according to a 2010 survey by the Kansas Head Start Association. Another result? Huge savings for the health

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Poor health literacy is the strongest predictor for a personâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s health, more than age, income, employment status, educational level or race,â&#x20AC;? she said. Without this tool, many of the parents rely on the advice of family, friends, TV or Internet searches, none of which is guaranteed to provide accurate medical information. Kim Ens, director of clinic services for the Health Department, which has distributed more than 550 books since March 2011, said the program empowers parents to make wise health care decisions for their children. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It helps them use health care appropriately,â&#x20AC;? she explained. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It gives them the power to make those decisions.â&#x20AC;?

American outreach upsets Iranâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard-line lawmakers By Nasser Karimi Associated Press

TEHRAN, IRAN â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Iran sought Sunday to calm hard-liners worried over groundbreaking exchanges with Washington, saying a single phone conversation between the American and Iranian presidents is not a sign that relations will be quickly restored. The comments by Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araghchi appeared tailored to address Iranian factions, including the powerful Revolutionary Guard, that have grown uneasy over fast-paced outreach last week between the White House and President Hassan Rouhani, which was capped by a 15-minute phone call with President Barack Obama. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Definitely, a history of high tensions between

Tehran and Washington will not go back to normal relations due to a phone call, meeting or negotiation,â&#x20AC;? Araghchi was quoted by the semi-official Fars news agency as saying. Rouhani seeks to restart stalled talks over its nuclear program in the hopes of easing U.S.-led sanctions. Iran, however, has not clariRouhani fied what concessions it is willing to make with its nuclear program in exchange. Araghchi also reiterated statements by Iranâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who said he no longer opposes direct talks with Washington but is not optimistic about the potential

outcome. Khamenei appears to have given Rouhani authority to handle the nuclear talks with world powers, scheduled to resume in Geneva in two weeks, and seek possible broader contacts with the Obama administration. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We never trust America 100 percent,â&#x20AC;? said Araghchi. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And, in the future, we will remain on the same path. We will never trust them 100 percent.â&#x20AC;? The divisions over Rouhaniâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s overtures were on display Saturday when he returned from New York. Supporters welcomed him with cheers, but a smaller pocket of protesters shouted insults. The U.S. and Iran broke ties after the 1979 Islamic Revolution when mobs stormed the U.S. Embassy in Tehran. A total of 52 hostages were held for 444 days.

Info on health care rollout scarce in Republican-controlled states By Emery P. Dalesio Associated Press

RALEIGH, N.C. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; With new online health insurance exchanges set to launch Tuesday, consumers in many Southern and Plains states will have to look harder for information on how the marketplaces work than their counterparts elsewhere. In Republican-led states that oppose the federal Affordable Care Act, the strategy has ranged from largely ignoring the health overhaul to encouraging residents not to sign up and even making it harder for nonprofit organizations

to provide information about the exchanges. Health care experts worry that ultimately consumers in these states could end up confused about the exchanges, and the overall rollout of the law could be hindered. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Without the shared planning and the cooperation of the state government, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s much harder for them to be ready to implement this complicated law,â&#x20AC;? said Rachel Grob of the University of Wisconsin-Madison, who has studied differences in how states are implementing the law. Several of the 14 Northeast, Midwest and Western

states running their own insurance exchanges have spent weeks on marketing and advertising campaigns to help residents get ready to buy health insurance. By contrast, most states across the South have declined federal grants to advertise the exchanges and ceded the right to run the marketplaces themselves. Governors from the Carolinas to Kansas have decried the exchanges and the rest of the law, which was passed by Congress in 2010. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When it came to Obamacare, we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just say â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;no,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; we said â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;never,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;?

GOP refuses to compromise in Congressâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; shutdown showdown By Andrew Taylor Associated Press

WASHINGTON â&#x20AC;&#x201D; With the government teetering on the brink of partial shutdown, congressional Republicans vowed Sunday to keep using an otherwise routine federal funding bill to try to attack the presidentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s health care law. Congress was closed for the day after a postmidnight vote in the GOPrun House to delay by a year key parts of the new health care law and repeal a tax on medical devices in exchange for avoiding a shutdown. The Senate was to convene Monday afternoon, just hours before the shutdown deadline, and Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., had already promised that majority Democrats would kill the Houseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s latest volley. Since the last government shutdown 17 years ago, temporary funding bills known as continuing resolutions have been noncontroversial, with neither party willing to chance a shutdown to achieve legislative goals it couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t otherwise win. But with health insurance exchanges set to open on Tuesday, tea-party Republicans are willing to take the risk in their drive

to kill the health care law. Action in Washington was limited mainly to the Sunday talk shows and a barrage of press releases as Democrats and Republicans rehearsed arguments for blaming each other if the government in fact closes its doors at midnight Monday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to shut down the government if you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t prevent millions of Americans from getting affordable care,â&#x20AC;? said Rep. Chris Van Hollen, D-Md. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The House has twice now voted to keep the government open. And if we have a shutdown, it will only be because when the Senate comes back, Harry Reid says, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I refuse even to talk,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? said Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, who led a 21-hour broadside against allowing the temporary funding bill to advance if stripped clean of a tea party-backed provision to derail Obamacare. The effort ultimately failed. The battle started with a House vote to pass the short-term funding bill with a provision that would have eliminated the federal dollars needed to put President Barack Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s health care overhaul into place. The Senate voted along party lines to strip that out and lobbed the measure back to the House.

The latest House measure, passed early Sunday by a near party-line vote of 231-192, sent back to the Senate two key changes: a one-year delay of key provisions of the health insurance law and repeal of a new tax on medical devices that partially funds it, steps that still go too far for The White House and its Democratic allies on Capitol Hill. Republicans argued that Reid should have convened the Senate on Sunday to act on the measure. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If the Senate stalls until Monday afternoon instead of working (Sunday), it would be an act of breathtaking arrogance by the Senate Democratic leadership,â&#x20AC;? said House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They will be deliberately bringing the nation to the brink of a government shutdown.â&#x20AC;? In the event lawmakers blow the Monday deadline, about 800,000 workers would be forced off the job without pay. Some critical services such as patrolling the borders, inspecting meat and controlling air traffic would continue. Social Security benefits would be sent, and Medicare and Medicaid would continue to pay doctors and hospitals.

Education image Kansas’ image as a state that values education is taking a significant hit in recent news reports.

S

ome recent association reports are making it look like Kansas doesn’t care very much about education. In mid-July, the American Association of State Colleges and Universities released a report showing that Kansas was one of just five states in the country that didn’t increase its financial support to state universities this year. While most states increased higher education funding by an average of 3.6 percent for the current fiscal year, the group said, Kansas approved cuts to state university budgets amounting to about 3 percent over the next two years. Then, earlier this month, the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities released data that showed state funding for K-12 education in Kansas, when adjusted for inflation, had declined by about 17 percent since 2008. That was the fourth largest funding decline of any state in the nation. This kind of publicity certainly doesn’t project the kind of image Kansas is hoping to foster around the country. As is true of any report, these ratings on education spending are open to interpretation. The Center on Budget and Policy Priorities is seen by some as a left-leaning group, and the conservative Kansas Policy Institute disputed the K-12 funding report saying it misrepresented the figures by counting only funding that came directly from the state and not local tax revenues authorized by the state. The KPI figures show considerably higher “taxpayer support” for education, but also confirms the responsibility placed on local property tax levies to fund K-6 education. Mark Tallman, associate executive director of the Kansas Association of School Boards offered another perspective on K-12 funding in an Internet posting last week. He contended that perpupil spending in Kansas, when adjusted for inflation, had gone almost unchanged between 2004 and 2013. “The only significant increase in spending since 2004,” he wrote, “has been in KPERS (state retirement fund) contributions and local bond issues and capital outlay funding approved by local voters.” From its founding, Kansas has prided itself on the quality of its schools and the excellence of its universities. During October, the Kansas Supreme Court will once again hear arguments about whether the state is adequately funding K-12 schools. Also during October, Kansas legislators will tour the state’s universities seeking answers to a long list of questions they say will help guide their higher education funding decisions in the next legislative session. Maybe Kansas is doing fine. Maybe the state’s public schools and public universities can produce great results even with current funding levels. But if Kansas truly is bucking a national trend on both K-12 and higher education funding, it may not bode well for the state’s future educational and economic success.

Congress may eventually rein in Fed WASHINGTON — Because Ben Bernanke’s public persona is as mild as milk, the transformation in American governance in which he has participated is imperfectly understood and hence insufficiently deplored. The change is dramatized by two recent developments. One was the campaigning by several constituencies for and against what supposedly were the two leading candidates — Larry Summers and Janet Yellen — to replace Bernanke as chairman of the Federal Reserve. The Fed can no longer be considered separated from politics. The second, and related, development is the semantic

George Will

georgewill@washpost.com

The Fed has become the model of applied progressivism, under which power flows to clever regulators who operate independent of political control.” infiltration of journalism by language that ratifies the Fed’s increasingly grandiose role. A Financial Times column on Yellen, now Bernanke’s presumptive successor, described her as “poised to take the tiller of the U.S. economy.” Oh? The economy has a tiller? And with it the Fed chairman can steer the economy? Who knew? On The Atlantic website, a columnist defends the Fed’s recent decision not to follow through on earlier intimations about reducing its monthly purchases of $85 billion in mortgage and treasury bonds. This, the columnist said, illustrates the Fed’s admirable “nimbleness.” A touch on the tiller here, a nimble reversal there — these express the fatal conceit of an institution that considers itself capable of, and responsible

for, fine-tuning the nation’s $15.7 trillion economy. Slowing the Fed’s bond purchases is called “tapering,” which means more modest “quantitative easing.” This is how governments talk when trying not to be understood. By continuing the pace of “easing” — printing money — the Fed has acknowledged that its fine-tuning has failed. The nimble, tiller-touching Fed assumed it would be more successful at reducing unemployment. Well, to err is human. To assume that a few government officials can and should steer America’s vast, globally connected economy — hundreds of millions of people making trillions of decisions a day — is a kind of confidence peculiar to the progressive temperament. In December 2010, Bernanke had this exchange with Scott Pelley of CBS’ “60 Minutes”: Bernanke: “We could raise interest rates in 15 minutes if we have to. So, there really is no problem with raising rates, tightening monetary policy, slowing the economy, reducing inflation at the appropriate time.” Pelley: “You have what degree of confidence in your ability to control this?” Bernanke: “One hundred percent.” Bernanke once hoped that economists might (in John

Maynard Keynes’ words) “get themselves thought of as humble, competent people on a level with dentists.” But Bernanke speaks the heroic language of a central planner, talking about the Fed’s tasks of “economic management” and “economic engineering.” Of course he has confidence in the Fed’s abstract power to end zero interest-rate policy (ZIRP). Easier said than done. Rep. Kevin Brady, R-Texas, chairman of the Joint Economic Committee of Congress, notes that four years of ZIRP has become “monetary morphine” for Wall Street, which is addicted. The day the Fed reneged on its hints of tapering, Wall Street responded euphorically — the Dow soared 147 points. ZIRP, which Yellen ardently supports, is trickle-down economics: Money, searching for yields higher than bonds offered under ZIRP, floods into stocks, the rising value of which supposedly creates a “wealth effect” — feelings of prosperity that stimulate spending and investing among the 10 percent who own about 80 percent of all stocks. ZIRP also makes the Fed an indispensable enabler of big government. By making borrowing, and hence deficits, cheap, ZIRP facilitates the political class’s bipartisan strategy of delivering current benefits while deferring

Inequities reflect subtle racism It was the suddenness that shocked me. This is one night 22 years ago. I had just moved to Miami and was visiting Coconut Grove for the first time. I remember being charmed. The side streets were lined with cozy bungalows. On the main streets there was light and music and an air of bohemia going upscale that made you want to linger and peoplewatch as women who looked as if they just stepped from the pages of Vogue were squired to and from nightclubs, restaurants and boutiques by handsome men in guayaberas. Leaving, I drove west on Grand Avenue and ... bang. Just like that, I was in another place. Here, there was less light and no music, nor flocks of date-night couples, nor really anybody except a few guys standing around, silently marking my passage. The buildings rose shadowy and quiet in meager pools of illumination cast by street lights. These were not streets for lingering. These were streets for passing quickly through. I didn’t know it then, but I was in West Grove, the hardscrabble, historically black area that abuts Coconut Grove. I had driven less than a mile — and ended up on the other side of the world. Ever since that night, the two Groves have struck me as a vivid illustration of the stark dualities of race and class in a nation that likes to tell itself it has overcome the former and made immaterial the latter. If you’re one of those who still believes that fiction, consider this scenario: Dangerous levels of contaminants have been found in the soil of a residential neighborhood. What happens next? Turns out — though not to the surprise of anyone

who understood the fiction to be just that — that it depends very much upon race and class. Just days after the discovery of toxins in the soil of a park in Coconut Grove, residents were alerted, the park closed, the soil capped. All within the last few weeks. Down the street on the other side of the world, it was a different story. There, in 2011, soil was found to be contaminated on the site of an incinerator — Old Smokey — that had belched ash into the air from the 1930s until it was closed in 1970. County environmental officials ordered the city to find out if the contaminants posed a risk and draft a plan for dealing with it. They gave the city a 60-day deadline. The city missed it. They gave the city another deadline. It missed that, too. Residents were told none of this, knew nothing about

it, until the initial finding was unearthed this year — two years later — by a University of Miami researcher. Now we learn that city tests have found this land, which sits next to a park and a community center, to be chock full of poisons, among them arsenic, lead, and benzo(a) pyrene, a carcinogen. Just days ago, officials declared the site is not a health risk. West Grove residents can perhaps be forgiven if they are skeptical. People often profess to be confused when I write about systemic inequity. Absent the caricature of some guy in a pointy white hood, they can see no racism. Absent the cliche of some society lady with nose elevated and pinky extended, they have no conception of classism. They can understand these as individual failings, yes. But what in the world is systemic oppression? Well, it is this, right here. It is a child whose health is zealously safeguarded at one end of the street and a child who is allowed to play on soil saturated with carcinogens and heavy metals on the other. It is the city making a determination, albeit de facto, that the latter child’s life has less worth. Shame on Miami for that. Shame on us all. These inequities exist because we allow them, because we condone by our silence the two-tiered treatment and second-class citizenship of those who are not us. Well, in this country, people have the right to expect they will be treated as if they matter. Even if they live along shadowed streets on the other side of the world. — Leonard Pitts Jr.is a columnist for the Miami Herald.

costs. ZIRP also provides cheap credit to big government’s partner, big business. Originally, in 1913, the Fed’s mission was price stability — preserving the currency as a store of value. In 1977, Congress created the “dual mandate,” instructing the Fed to maximize employment. This supposedly authorizes the Fed to manipulate the stock market, part of Bernanke’s inflation of the dual mandate into “promoting a healthy economy.” Is a particular distribution of income unhealthy? The Fed will tell us. The next Fed chair will put her or his hand on the economy’s imaginary tiller after politically muscular constituencies campaigned for her or his candidacy. What will this helmsman do when, say, the homebuilders and others in the construction industry clamor pre-emptively against any retreat from ZIRP? The Fed has become the model of applied progressivism, under which power flows to clever regulators who operate independent of political control. The Fed is, however, a creation of Congress, which may not forever refrain from putting a bridle and snaffle on a Fed that increasingly allocates credit, wealth and opportunity. — George Will is a columnist for Washington Post Writers Group.

PUBLIC FORUM

Stupid threat To the editor: However offensive one might find Professor Guth’s remarks, freedom of speech, a principle upon which our country is founded, is far more important. The legislator’s response, to defund Kansas University in retaliation, is unconscionable and just plain stupid. It makes as much sense to defund our public high schools or even our grade schools where such “offensive beliefs” might be planted. I get so tired of being ashamed of living in Kansas, a state I used to love and respect for its bright, caring and responsible people. Remember when Kansas was known for defying slavery, standing up for civil rights, supporting the rights of women, and being a part of exploring space (among other achievements)?

Kansas primed to upset Raiders

B

Giant killers

Perhaps waiting to learn more information on the chances of red-shirt sophomore quarterback Michael Brewer having a healthyenough back to make his season debut for Texas Tech, oddsmakers had not set a line on this coming Saturday morning’s game in Memorial Stadium as of Sunday night. Once the line is released, it will show Texas Tech as the favorite against a Kansas University football team that has lost its last 21 Big 12 contests. Before getting into why I think the streak ends and the upset takes place, let’s look at why it makes sense to position Texas Tech as the favorite. First, when Kansas has the ball, Tech has a distinct advantage up front. The offensive line ranks among KU’s biggest weaknesses; Tech’s defensive line ranks among its greatest strengths. Kerry Hyder, the 6-foot2, 280-pound senior from Austin, Texas, has a habit of exploding into opposing backfields and making things happen. He throws running backs and quarterbacks for losses, bats passes and generally makes his disruptive presence felt as well as just about any player in the Big 12. Forgive him if he starts salivating when watching film of KU’s inexperienced blockers. Ditto for talented senior linebacker Will Smith. Shifting to when the Red Raiders (4-0) have the ball, the worrisome issue for KU becomes how to stop three Charlie Riedel, Ed Zurga/AP Photos pass-catching threats the ABOVE, KANSAS CITY QUARTERBACK ALEX SMITH (11) THROWS from the pocket during the first half likes of which the Jayhawks of the Chiefs’ 31-7 rout of the Giants.

Chiefs cruise to 4-0 record

Greene: Kansas players ‘get along great’ By Gary Bedore gbedore@ljworld.com

One of the best things about playing basketball at Kansas University, Brannen Greene says, is the camaraderie of a close-knit team. “We all get along great,” said Greene, a 6-foot-7 freshman shooting guard from Juliette, Ga. “There aren’t any grudges on the team. Nobody dislikes anybody. There are all positive vibes everywhere.” T h o s e Greene good vibrations were evident at last week’s Media Day ... when freshman center Joel Embiid praised senior power forward Tarik Black for sharing his expertise; when freshman point guard Frank Mason singled out junior Naadir Tharpe for showing him the ropes; when freshman sharpshooters Greene and Conner Frankamp kidded about their one-on-one three-point shooting competitions held before and after practice. “We have them all the time,” Greene said. “I beat him sometimes. He beats me sometimes. It all depends. He’s definitely the best shooter I’ve gone against. Hopefully he’ll say the same about me.” Noted Frankamp: “It’s good fun. It helps me a lot having somebody to shoot with. He’s a great shooter. I think shooting behind the arc, we’re similar. He’s taller and longer. He’s good as well off the dribble. I think we’re both great shooters all around.” Greene averaged 27 points, 9.0 rebounds and 6.0 assists a game last year for Tift County High School (265). Frankamp, 6-foot from Wichita North, went for 31.1 points and 3.8 assists per contest for North (20-3). “I think I’m a versatile scorer, but primarily a shooter,” Greene said. “I shot a pretty good percentage in high school. I think I was 52 percent from the three-point line,” Frankamp noted. “I was pretty accurate in high school. I have to bring it to this level as well.” KU coach Bill Self especially enjoys watching Frankamp and Greene the days they are on fire from long range. “He’s big. He’s 6-7 with great range and vision and good ball skills,” Self said of Please see HOOPS, page 3B

KU’s Reynolds grows up 240-pound defensive end from Wichita has looked like a completely different player. Changes in his personal life — Reynolds is a father now — helped bring perspective. But highly publicized upgrades to the KU roster helped bring the sense of urgency that was missing from the gifted pass rusher who too often lacked the focus and accountability, a shortcoming that kept coaches from leaving him on the field for long. “Mentally, I’ve matured a lot,” said Reynolds, who Please see REYNOLDS, page 3B

The Hold Steady For the third consecutive week, the top five teams in the AP Top 25 were unchanged. No. 1 Alabama received 55 first-place votes from the media panel. No. 2 Oregon received the other five. Clemson is No. 3 followed by Ohio State and Stanford. All five won Saturday, with only Ohio State getting challenged.

Three strokes behind leader Tom Lehman entering the round, Triplett finished at 11-under 205 for his second career Champions Tour title. Last year, the three-time PGA Tour winner overcame a four-shot deficit. Garwood, a Monday qualifier making his fourth career start on the 50-and-over tour, and Forsman each shot 69.

Alfred Dunhill Links Championship ST.

The former Ryder Cup player won with a 12-foot birdie putt on the second extra hole on the Old Course at St. Andrews. Howell closed with a 5-under 67 to match Uihlein at 23-under 265. Uihlein shot 69. Howell beat Tiger Woods in 2006 to win the inaugural HSBC Champions and has played more than 200 tournaments since his last victory in the BMW Championship later that year.

Web.com Tour Championship PONTE VEDRA BEACH, FLA. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Chesson Hadley had to settle for a victory Sunday in the Web. com Tour Championship. Hadley closed with a 1-under 69 for a two-shot victory in the fourth and final event of the series that determine PGA Tour cards. But a late bogey by Scott Gardiner kept Hadley from winning the special money list and getting full status on the PGA Tour and a spot in The Players Championship next year. John Peterson wound up winning the special money list. And perhaps the biggest winner was Lee Williams. Needing a birdie on the 18th hole of the Valley Course on the TPC Sawgrass, he rolled in a 55-foot over a ridge and into the cup to earn a tour card.

SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA HEAD COACH LANE KIFFIN, pictured here during USCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s loss to Arizona State on Saturday, is out of a job after going 28-15 in parts of four seasons with the Trojans.

USC fires football coach Kiffin after latest loss LOS ANGELES â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Southern California fired Lane Kiffin early Sunday morning, ending the coachâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tumultuous tenure a few hours after the Trojans lost 62-41 at Arizona State. Ed Orgeron was picked as USCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s interim head coach by athletic director Pat Haden, who dismissed Kiffin at the airport following the Trojansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; flight home. USC (3-2, 0-2 Pac-12) has eight games left under Orgeron, Kiffinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s assistant head coach and the former Mississippi head coach. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s never the perfect time to do these things, but I thought it was the right time,â&#x20AC;? Haden said. Haden fired Kiffin in a 3 a.m. meeting at the Trojansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; private airport terminal, but not before a 45-minute chat in which Kiffin tried to change Hadenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mind. Haden didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hire Kiffin, but had been firmly behind the coach until Saturday, when the Trojans matched the most points allowed in school history. The loss was the seventh in 11 games for a high-profile program still struggling under the cumulative effect of NCAA sanctions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He did a lot of things well under some very difficult circumstances here,â&#x20AC;? Haden said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;No one could have worked harder. He did a lot of the things we asked. Graduated players, never had compliance issues ... and he really worked under some very difficult NCAA sanctions, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no doubt about it.â&#x20AC;? USC must finish an already disappointing season without Kiffin while looking for another coach to reboot its proud program. The Trojans are off this week before returning Oct. 10 at the Coliseum against Arizona. Kiffin went 28-15 in parts of four seasons in his self-described dream job, but USC is 0-2 in conference play for the first time since 2001 after losses to Arizona State and Washington State â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and the record only partly captures the discontent of USCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fans and alumni. The Trojans were unimpressive on offense even in their three victories this season, stoking discontent around a school with sky-high expectations despite the tail end of heavy NCAA penalties stemming from coach Pete Carrollâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tenure. Kiffin received withering criticism for persisting in calling the Trojansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; offensive plays himself well into the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s second straight poor offensive season. The Trojans lost their home opener 10-7 to the unheralded Cougars earlier this month, and Coliseum fans serenaded USC repeatedly with chants of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Fire Kiffin!â&#x20AC;? USC has been in a slow tailspin since going 10-2 and beating Oregon in 2011, the last year of its bowl ban. After starting as the preseason No. 1 last year, the Trojans finished 7-6 and out of the rankings, followed by this seasonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disappointments. Like the precocious Kiffinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s other two head coaching jobs, his USC tenure had an abrupt, messy exit.

The Trojansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; former co-offensive coordinator was an NFL head coach at age 31, a head coach in the Southeastern Conference at 33 and USCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s head coach at 34. If there was a consistent trend to those stops with the Oakland Raiders, Tennessee and the Trojans, it was turmoil. With Oakland, he lasted only 20 games as an overmatched head coach before his departure became a public feud with Al Davis, the late Raiders owner. He then infuriated Volunteers fans when he left after just 14 months to head back to the Trojans.

WHITE SOX CATCHER JOSH PHEGLEY, RIGHT, TAGS OUT KANSAS CITY’S JOHNNY GIAVOTELLA as home plate umpire Chris Conroy, left, looks on during the eighth inning. The Royals won anyway, 4-1, Sunday in Chicago.

Royals end on win CHICAGO (AP) — The Kansas City Royals think this is only the beginning. Wait until next year comes around. Bruce Chen pitched four-hit ball into the seventh inning, and Kansas City beat the Chicago White Sox 4-1 on Sunday in the finale of the Royals’ best season in 24 years. “It’s a good start. I think we’re making progress as an organization,” said manager Ned Yost, who completed the final season of his contract but is expected to return next year. “Ten games over .500, it’s a significant first step and we need to continue to build on it.” Kansas City won three of four in Chicago and went 17-10 in September for its most successful month of the season. The Royals’ 86-76 record was their best mark since they went 92-70 in 1989. “This team came out every game and expected to win every game regardless of what happened the night before,” said Greg Holland, who got three outs for his 47th save. “We got to grind it out that way; that’s how you get in the playoffs. We came up short but I think going into next spring we’re going to be pretty happy with where we’re at.” Chen’s sharp outing put a damper on what might

has been operating all year behind a patchwork offensive line. “The defense got us some turnovers and we weren’t able to do anything with it. We are just not playing very well offensively.” The injury-ravaged Giants trailed only 17-7 after three quarters. They managed a 69-yard catch-andrun TD from Eli Manning to Victor Cruz. “This is a situation we’ve got to fix,” said Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks. “We know what we’re capable of doing.” Smith hit touchdown passes of 4, 2 and 35 yards and was 24 for 41 for 288 yards. He was intercepted twice and the Chiefs also lost a fumble, Kansas City’s first turnovers in what may be turning into a magical season under first-year head coach Andy Reid. “I know they’ll battle,” said first-year coach Andy Reid, who spent the previous 14 seasons coaching the Eagles. “That’s what I know. There are a lot of things I don’t know but I do know this: We’re a tough bunch.” Manning was 18 for 37 for 217 yards and the one TD. He was sacked three times and intercepted once, but harried and hurried much of the bright, sunny afternoon. All of a sudden, the mis-

have been the last majorleague game for White Sox captain Paul Konerko, who is eligible for free agency and isn’t sure if he will play again next year. The veteran first baseman is second in franchise history with 427 homers and 1,361 RBIs, and third with 2,249 hits. Konerko was greeted with loud cheers when he was introduced with the starting lineup, and the

crowd of 22,633 saluted the slugger with a standing ovation when he came to the plate in the first. He was replaced by Conor Gillaspie with one out in the top of the second, and he stopped to shake pitcher Jose Quintana’s hand as he left the field to more cheers. “It always feels good. The fans here have treated me great over the years,” said Konerko, who tweaked his back during Saturday night’s 6-5 victory, leading to the quick hook in the finale. “In a year like this, they treated me better than probably I deserved, really the whole team when you think about it.” Konerko waved his hat to the crowd as he made his way to the dugout. With the Royals also standing and clapping on the other side, the six-time All-Star acknowledged the long ovation with a brief curtain call. Chen (9-4) allowed one run, struck out four and walked three in 62⁄3 innings. The crafty lefthander went 6-4 with a 3.61 ERA in 15 starts after he joined the rotation in July. “I feel like I helped the team in the second half,” Chen said. “I feel like I was a major contributor on a team making a run on the playoffs and it was fun.”

“At the college level, guys are longer and tougher. I have to knock down open shots, not miss many open shots,” Frankamp said. “I feel I can knock down a lot of open shots.” Frankamp finished his high school career with 2,275 points, passing current Jayhawk Perry Ellis (2,231) as top scorer in Wichita City League history. “He (Ellis) doesn’t talk to me much about the scoring record, but we talk every once in a while. It helps having him around. I can ask him anything. He’s always there to talk to me and help me,” Frankamp stated, giving another example of KU camaraderie. “He hasn’t brought it up yet. I’m sure he might,” Ellis said with a smile, hinting he might have a nice comeback awaiting Frankamp, such as total state championships. “It’s great to have Conner with me (after) playing against each other three years. I’m just excited having him on the team. He’s excited to be here, too.”

So far, the Kansas defense, as is the case with Texas Tech’s, has exceeded expectations. Tech has used two quarterbacks, both true freshmen. They have combined for eight interceptions. Thus far, the Red Raiders’ lone road game, against SMU, featured support nearly as loud for Tech as for the Mustangs. That won’t be the case Saturday in Memorial Stadium. Walk-on Baker Mayfield and fourstar, hot-shot recruit Davis Webb have split time in Brewer’s absence. If Brewer can’t go, the smart guess has Webb starting. If he starts throwing the ball all over the place, Kansas is doing a better job of rushing the QB this season and has the cornerbacks to make Webb pay in Dexter McDonald and JaCorey Shepherd. Tech’s offensive line is young and shaky. If Brewer, battling a bad back, is cleared to play, he’ll be running the offense of new head coach Kliff Kingsbury, 34, for the first time. He was efficient as a backup a year ago (34 for 48, 375 yards, four touchdowns, no interceptions). If he is cleared to play, the upset chances weaken, but don’t vanish.

Reynolds

with the forced fumble that saved the Jayhawks against Louisiana Tech a week ago. “He’s grown up,” said Weis, asked about Reynolds’ early impact. “He’s becoming more of a factor for us every week.” According to Reynolds, that’s no accident. Already gifted with good speed and quickness, Reynolds spent the summer transforming himself into a more complete player, an effort made easier by the transition to the Buck position. “I worked on my passrushing a ton this summer,” he said. “But I also worked on my coverage a lot, since the Buck position is also in coverage now, and I think I progressed in both of those categories.” As his early 2013 statistics indicate, Reynolds said learning from and playing with starting Buck Ben Goodman — at times the two play together on opposite ends of the D-line — has been a blast so far and has allowed both players to play loose and free. “I feel like it suits me the best,” Reynolds said of the linebacker/defensive end hybrid position. “Versatility … you get to pass-rush and also jump in coverage, which gives me the freedom to use my athleticism to make plays.” The more plays he makes, the more snaps he’ll play. “Michael Reynolds has been a pleasant surprise,” Weis said. “We have all been waiting for this. He has really turned the corner and started to deliver.”

weighed 210 pounds as a freshman. “I know my responsibilities more and understand the play and the speed of college football and everything like that.” He also understands what’s expected of him and deserves some of the credit for figuring it out. Instead of pouting about a lack of playing time or complaining to others about his talents being wasted, Reynolds sought feedback from the places it mattered most — his coaches. “I had a couple meetings. I even set some up myself just to discuss some things to make sure I was ready to step up and be on the field and make plays to help our team out,” said Reynolds, noting that he felt his proactive approach showed coaches and teammates that he no longer lacked drive and determination. After a solid fall camp landed him on the Jayhawks’ two-deep depth chart at the defensive line’s hybrid Buck position, Reynolds followed that up with a strong start to the season. His five tackles don’t rank anywhere near the top of KU’s list — not surprisingly, junior linebacker Ben Heeney leads the way with 32 tackles — but his plays have made a major impact. Reynolds recorded two sacks in KU’s loss to Rice and was credited

ing AL Cy Young winner David Price. Texas gets a boost, too — All-Star slugger Nelson Cruz will be active after his 50game penalty from Major League Baseball in the Biogenesis drug scandal. It will be baseball’s first tiebreaker — officially, this is a regular-season game and the stats count — since Minnesota beat Detroit 6-5 in 12 innings for the 2009 AL Central title. What was supposed to be the final day of the regular season began with the possibility of a three-way

tie for a pair of AL wildcard spots. Instead, Cleveland clinched its first postseason berth since 2007, winning 5-1 at Minnesota to finish at 92-70 and one game ahead of Texas and Tampa Bay as the top wild card. Rookie Danny Salazar is set to start for the Indians against either Texas or Tampa Bay. The NL playoff scene is settled. Johnny Cueto starts for Cincinnati against Francisco Liriano and the Pirates at Pitts-

burgh on Tuesday night in the NL wild-card playoff. In the best-of-five division series, the NL wild-card winner is at St. Louis and the Los Angeles Dodgers start at Atlanta. The Dodgers will be minus center fielder Matt Kemp for the postseason because of swelling in a bone in his left ankle, an injury that caused him to missed 52 in the last two months. In the AL, Detroit opens at Oakland and the wild card visits Boston.

Injury report: Titans QB Locker taken to hospital The Associated Press

Titans quarterback Jake Locker was carted off the field and taken to the hospital by ambulance Sunday after hurting his right hip early in the third quarter against the New York Jets. Locker had just thrown an incomplete pass to Nate Washington when Muhammad Wilkerson hit the quarterback in the chest, and then Quinton Coples popped Locker in the side. Locker grabbed at his right hip area as he went to the ground with 11:14 left in the third quarter. He was carted to the locker room with his right leg straight out. Locker was taken to a hospital by ambulance. Titans coach Mike Munchak said the team did not know the extent of the injury.

Jets wide receiver Stephen Hill suffered a head injury on New York’s opening series and was out for the game. Seattle coach Pete Carroll said defensive end Michael Bennett was OK after being taken off the field on a stretcher after injuring his lower back on a hit on Houston quarterback Matt Schaub. Texans linebacker Brian Cushing left due to a concussion in the third quarter. Oakland lost both of its starting running backs to injuries in the first half against the Redskins. Darren McFadden left with a hamstring injury and fullback Marcel Reece was out with a knee injury. Washington lost running back Alfred Morris in the second half to bruised ribs.

Mom-in-law lonely during the holidays Annie’s Mailbox

Marcy Sugar and Kathy Mitchell anniesmailbox@comcast.net

Dear Torn: The first year after being widowed can be lonely and frightening. Your mother-in-law is not ready to join your husband’s family for a holiday, and it would be a great kindness not to leave her alone. Tell the aunt how much you appreciate the invitation, but you simply cannot do it this year. (You also could consider inviting the aunt’s family to your home instead.) Then encourage Mom to get grief counseling. Sometimes these limitations

‘Men’ goes where only the lonely go We just don’t use the word “dreadful” often enough, particularly in reference to situation comedies. Debuting tonight, “We Are Men” (7:30 p.m., CBS) certainly qualifies as dreadful in the word’s most common application, meaning terrible or extremely bad. But dreadful can also describe something that fills one with dread and profound apprehension. And in its own dreadful way, “We Are Men” fits that bill, too. In its own extraordinarily lazy way, “We Are Men” is about loneliness, or the desperate efforts we make to keep it at bay. Dumped at the altar, Carter (Chris S m i t h ) moves into a short-term apartment complex in an unfashionable section of Southern California that seems to be a purgatorial dumping ground for the recently divorced. Officially ensconced in misery, Carter meets fellow sad sack Gil (Kal Penn) and divorced womanizers Frank (Tony Shalhoub) and Stuart (Jerry O’Connell). They promise to take him under their wing, distracting him from his plight, so he can either rebound or settle into the stale holding pattern of meaningless sex that has defined their adult (and adulterous) lives. Believe it or not, this is even less funny than it sounds. Penn makes the most of his one-note role and Smith rises to forgettable status. Shalhoub plays against “Monk” type with sleazy gusto. But O’Connell deserves special mention. He doesn’t just throw himself into the role of a furiously angry middle-aged man fighting a losing battle with fading youth — he frequently does it shirtless and in a Speedo. As the saying goes, you can’t un-see that. For the record, if the gettingdumped-at-the-altar routine sounds familiar, it’s because it was used, just two years ago, in the pilot of the recently canceled “Happy Endings,” 19 years ago in the pilot for “Friends,” 46 years ago in “The Graduate” and 79 years ago in the Frank Capra comedy “It Happened One Night.” And just to accentuate recycling, this pilot uses the left-atthe-altar device twice. Now that’s dreadful.

Tonight’s other highlights

Murder in gangland on “Bones” (7 p.m., Fox).

The CW will broadcast the four-hour “iHeartRadio Music Festival” (7 p.m.) over the next two nights.

Duncan makes his point on “Hostages” (9 p.m., CBS).

BIRTHDAYS Nobel Peace Laureate Elie Wiesel is 85. Actress Fran Drescher is 56. Actor Eric Stoltz is 52. Actress Jenna Elfman is 42. Tennis player Martina Hingis is 33. Olympic gold medal gymnast Dominique Moceanu is 32. Actor Kieran Culkin is 31. Singer-rapper T-Pain is 29.

become self-fulfilling prophecies if not addressed, and you should not be held hostage by her refusal to participate in life. Dear Annie: How do I tell my best friend that I find it tiresome and boring to talk to her? Whenever “Jane” calls me (which is several times a day), she goes on for hours about unimportant details. She took 15 minutes to tell me about her excursion to shop for vegetables. She often won’t even say hello when I pick up the phone and immediately starts rambling on. She rarely asks me how I’m doing. We talk on the phone a lot because Jane’s job involves traveling, and she calls me when she’s on the road. I once fell asleep during the conversation, and she didn’t notice. I have no problem telling Jane that I can’t talk

JACQUELINE BIGAR’S STARS

For Monday, Sept. 30 This year will be pleasant for you, especially if you enjoy your friends and fulfill your long-desired goals! If you are single, let others know of your decision to maintain that status. If you are attached, the two of you will need to deal with a certain amount of the unexpected. The Stars Show the Kind of Day You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult Aries (March 21-April 19)  The unexpected continues to make daily life exciting for anyone around you. Whether you’re working on a love letter or coming up with a new business idea, your creativity seems to be at work. Tonight: Kick up your heels and be noticed. Don’t worry about tomorrow.Taurus (April 20-May 20)  You will want to spend more time at home than you have in a while. Pressure could build, and you might feel more comfortable staying at home. Tonight: Make a favorite dinner. Gemini (May 21-June 20)  So many people seek you out that you easily could be overwhelmed by all of the requests and invitations. Listen to what people are sharing. Tonight: Off to enjoy yourself. Cancer (June 21-July 22)  Be aware of others’ needs. Recognize that you have a tendency to go overboard. Tonight: A little restraint might help. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)  Others will be delighted to have you around, at least until they realize the level of your energy. Tonight: Let it all hang out. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)  Trust your sixth sense about

at a given moment, and she’s OK with that. I do not want to cut her off. I’d just like these talks to have more interaction. Except for this, Jane is a lovely person, and when she talks about anything else, the conversation can be really interesting. How do I deal with this in a nice way? — Annie from Europe Dear Annie: Jane is basically talking to herself, recounting her day, and attempting to make you part of her daily life. But this is both boring and egocentric. Her conversation is all about her. Best friends should be able to tell each other unpleasant facts without ruining the friendship.

what is going on behind the scenes. You might want to rethink a recent decision you’ve made once you either confirm or deny what your intuition is telling you. Tonight: Lie low. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)  Understand that someone you care about suddenly could become difficult. You do not have to react or do anything. Tonight: Beam in more of what you want. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)  Someone you look up to seems to be bent out of shape. You might be taken aback by this person’s behavior at the moment. Tonight: A must appearance. Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)  At first, you might be upset by what is going on. The unexpected could throw your plans in several different directions. Tonight: Think about taking off for a few days. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)  You absorb a lot of information, and quite quickly at that. Nevertheless, you might feel challenged by someone you look up to. Tonight: Spend time with a close friend. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)  Someone you know quite well might come barreling toward you like an enraged animal. How you handle this person’s behavior could determine the long-term durability of this bond. Tonight: Out and about. Others seek you out. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)  You might be trying to do so much that you could be accidentprone as you speed from one person or activity to another. Tonight: A close encounter.

Dear Annie: For many years, my husband and I hosted all the family holidays. Last year, my husband’s aunt invited us to stay with her for Thanksgiving and celebrate with her family. We gratefully accepted. She invited my in-laws, as well, although they opted not to go because my father-in-law wasn’t well. The aunt has extended the same invitation this year. Here’s our dilemma: My father-inlaw died eight months ago, and my mother-inlaw is now alone. She initially said that she would come along with us for Thanksgiving, but now says she is afraid to leave the house empty and won’t go. We’d like to keep our Thanksgiving invitation, but we don’t want to leave my mother-in-law by herself on a holiday. What should we do? — Torn in Los Angeles
