New standards to reshape teaching Chamber

engages private sector

Common Core takes different approach to math, reading By Peter Hancock

Emily Seaman, a fourth-grade teacher at Hillcrest School, knows there are big changes ahead in the way she goes about teaching reading and math. But by the time the new Common Core State Standards go into full effect in 2014, she believes that she and other teachers in the Lawrence school district will be ready. “I think they are definitely preparing us,” she said after one recent training session on the new standards. “We’re doing a lot of diving into the standards and figuring out what they’re doing, how they’re changing and how they’re the same. There are a lot of shifts in how you learn and how you teach, from the old standards to the new standards.” Seaman was one of several elementary classroom and special education teachers who attended a Please see STANDARDS, page 6A

2 Douglas Co. murder cases to be reviewed By Scott Rothschild

TOPEKA — Two people convicted in murder cases in Douglas County will have appeals before the Kansas Supreme Court this week. On Tuesday, the court will hear oral arguments in the appeal of Shanna Friday, who was convicted of second-degree murder in the 2008 slaying of 62-year-old Jerry Deshazer. Deshazer bled to death after being hit with a

bottle during a fight at his mobile home in eastern Lawrence. Friday was sentenced to 14 and a half years in prison. Her boyfriend, Jerod Buffalohead, who was also involved in the fight, pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter and received a five-year prison sentence. Friday, now 41, is appealing on numerous grounds, including exclusion of evidence that a witness had received a plea agreement. Family members and

friends of Deshazer described him as someone who loved to help people. On Wednesday, the court will consider the appeal of Allen Dale Smith, who was convicted of felony murder and aggravated burglary in the 2005 shooting death of Clarence David Boose, 77, at his home near Lecompton. Boose, a retired Topeka jeweler, was shot in the head when he surprised burglars. Smith and his cousin

Leonard Wayne Price were on a crime spree, burglarizing homes in northeast Kansas and using the money to buy methamphetamine, according to a statement Smith gave police. Smith, now 41, was sentenced to life in prison for murder and 11 years and four months for aggravated burglary. Price, now 51, pleaded guilty to felony murder but said he did not shoot Boose. He was sentenced to life in prison. Smith and Price also were convicted and

sentenced in a Pottawatomie County shooting and burglary. Boose and his wife had founded David’s Jewelers on Kansas Avenue in Topeka. Smith has raised numerous issues in his appeal, including the admission of evidence relating to other residential burglaries. The court is hearing arguments in cases all week. — Statehouse reporter Scott Rothschild can be reached at 785-423-0668.

New Lawrence Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Greg Williams only needed to hear the question once. Meetings would come and go at Lawrence City Hall with contentious subjects ranging from development along Interstate 70 to a funding agreement for the South Lawrence Trafficway. Oftentimes opponents of the development-oriented proposals would show up at meetings to speak against the plans, but the folks who would talk your ear off in the coffee shop about Lawrence’s lack of jobs were nowhere to be heard. Some City Hall leaders had begun to become miffed and started asking the question, sometimes with increasing bluntness. Where’s the business community? “I remember having commissioners and administrators Please see CHAMBER, page 2A

Father’s letters project helps families, including own, deal with loss By Karrey Britt

On Aug. 11, 2011, Topeka resident Von Kopfman’s 21-year-old son Jacob was in a work-related accident. Jacob was flown to a Columbia, Mo., hospital; by the time Kopfman and Jacob’s twin brother, Jordan, could get to the hospital, they were too late. Jacob had died. Suddenly, Kopfman was faced with a whirlwind of

decisions at a time when he was in shock. He was told he needed to find a funeral home that could embalm his son before crossing the state line. He also was advised to get a lawyer. “I’m thinking, I don’t know a funeral home in Columbia, Missouri. I don’t know an attorney,” he said.

CRAIG PHILLIP PARIS COLUMBIA, S.C. — A memorial service for Craig Phillip Paris, 58, will be held 3:00 p.m. Wednesday, October 24, 2012 at Dunbar Funeral Home, Devine Street Chapel. The family will receive friends one hour prior to the service at the funeral home. Craig Phillip Paris of Columbia, South Carolina, was called home on Friday, October 19, 2012. Born at Selfridge Air Force Base, Michigan, on November 4, 1953, Mr. Paris spent his early years traveling with his family as an Army brat. He graduated from Lawrence High School in Lawrence, Kansas in 1971. It was at Lawrence High School that he discovered his lifelong love of motorcycles. Mr. Paris eventually achieved the position of master mechanic with Harley Davidson, and his expertise and honest nature led to his repairing and restoring bikes for all manner of Harley aficionados, from working stiffs to celebrities. He worked for various Harley Davidson franchises until 2010, and recently had commenced offering his talents by appointment through his own company, Paris Engines, of Atlanta, Georgia. Mr. Paris was employed by Sedexo at Lexington School District Two, where he thoroughly enjoyed working and mentoring with the staff and children at Davis Early Childhood Center for Technology, and where he was grateful for the fellowship of his lunch

way I can survive this, is to try to help other people,” Kopfman said. The website has led to a publishing deal for two books called “The Letters Project” that came out of counseling that Kopfman and his surviving son received. “My son was very angry that we didn’t get there before Jacob passed away and didn’t get the chance to tell him goodbye, and the psychologist suggested that he hand-write a letter to him,” Kopfman said. So, Jordan — who didn’t really want to see a counselor in the first place — wrote his brother a letter and he said it made him feel better. Then, his dad wrote one. Then, Kopfman encouraged a handful of other parents who lost their children during the past few years to write letters as well. Kopfman said he learned from his counselor that writing a letter is referred to as narrative therapy and the process causes certain chemicals in the brain to be released. People also are more apt to let out their true emotions through a letter. Jordan then asked his dad, who is a songwriter, to put his letter to music and once it was done, he posted it on Facebook. From there, interest in Kopfman’s “letters project” grew. About 50 families came forward wanting to write letters to their loved ones. He met an 85-year-old woman who was grieving the loss of her 65-year-old son and wanted to join the project. “She pointed out that it doesn’t matter what age you are; they are still your baby,” Kopfman said. He has received hundreds of letters, and now they will be in a book, “The Letters Project Book: Letters to Lost Loved Ones,” that will be published in

December. The letters are not just from parents, but also grandparents, siblings, spouses and friends. There also will be a CD with 15 songs based on 15 letters in the book. During his research for the first book, Kopfman came across a blog by Jefri Franks, a grief counselor in Kansas City, Mo., who lost her only child to cancer in 2001. In the blog, Franks talked about working at Children’s Mercy Hospital and overhearing a conversation between a terminally ill 4-year-old girl who had lung cancer and her nurse. The girl asked, “Will anybody remember me when I am gone?” After reading the blog, Kopfman contacted Franks and the idea for a second book, “The Letters Project Book: Letters From Terminally Ill Children,” was born. Kopfman and Franks also teamed up with artist Jancy Pettit, of Topeka, so children could draw pictures that illustrate how they feel. The book will include information about the fears a child with a terminal illness might have, information about the healing powers of writing and art, and hundreds of children’s letters and artwork. The book is expected to be published in February. “In visiting with some families, they are so elated. It’s the first positive thing they’ve had,” he said. “For a lot of these kids, the only place they’ve ever been is in the hospital. The only kids they know are other terminally ill kids. They sit and they watch their friends die, and they know they are going to die. It’s horrible, and anything that we can do to bring some joy and some peace and reassure them that their life did make a difference and they aren’t going to be forgotten, well, I am just absolutely honored to be a part of that.” For more information visit, Kopfman is still accepting letters for both books and resources for the website.

look to us and say that they know there is support out there for these efforts, but where is everybody?” said Williams, who took over as the chamber’s president and CEO in May. “It did not take me long to accept that we are obligated, not just expected, but obligated to be there to encourage the community to make common sense decisions on growth and development matters.” So, one of Williams’ first initiatives at the Chamber was to form a new invitation-only committee called the Chamber’s Voice of Business Committee. The group now has 50 active members. Williams is confident that from that group of 50 he can pull together at a moment’s notice a pool of a dozen business advocates to attend and speak at any City Commission, County Commission or school board meeting that has an economic developmentrelated issue.

Fundraising campaign The new group is one sign of change at the Lawrence Chamber, which is on its fourth president since 2000. But other signs may be on the way. Williams confirmed that in the coming days and weeks he’ll ask the chamber’s board to approve what would likely be a million-dollar-plus campaign to raise private funds to help with economic development efforts. “Our private sector financial support is frankly not where I believe it needs to be,” Williams said. “We have tremendous public sector support for economic development.

Museum donation generates mystery

‘Healing to be had’ after fatal crash

By Tim Linn The Leavenworth Times

LEAVENWORTH — It’s been a few weeks since C.W. Parker Carousel Museum Director Jerry Reinhardt brought back to Leavenworth what was bound to be one of the facility’s most unique pieces — now if they can only figure out what it is. Reinhardt said he and his wife, Marilyn, picked up the two canvas rolls during the most recent National Carousel Association conference in Washington, D.C. They were donated by Barbara Charles, a partner in a Washingtonbased museum planning firm. The two pieces are somewhat mysterious even for Charles, Reinhardt and the other volunteers at the Leavenworth museum who have access to archives and other information about the carnival magnate, who had a factory here after moving from Abilene. One is 45 inches tall and the other about 32 inches tall. Both, however, are about 200 feet long and weigh about 100 pounds. “It’s not easy to handle,” he said. The banners, hand-painted with oil on canvas, depict in detail two different scenes — one seems to follow a creation story from the Ice Age through the dinosaurs and the first appearance of people. The other is something of a travelogue, with scenes from nearly every continent, including Jordan’s Petra Cave City. They were likely Please see MUSEUM, page 4A

TOPEKA — A Kansas man who operates an online tutoring service as “Mr. X, Mentor of Mathematics” is running for the State Board of Education in hopes of making it easier for professionals outside the public school system to become teachers. Steve Roberts argues that state policies still place too much emphasis on ensuring that aspiring secondcareer teachers go back to college to study teaching methods — instead SCHOOLS of quickly tapping their knowledge of subjects such as math and science, particularly in middle and high schools. Roberts, a self-described conservative Republican from the Kansas City suburb of Overland Park, is riling educators and renewing a debate that’s simmered for years. Roberts is running for the open state board seat for the 2nd District, covering populous stretches of northern and eastern Johnson County. His opponent is Cindy Neighbor, a Shawnee Democrat and former Kansas House member who’s served 16 years on the Shawnee Mission school board.

DOUGLAS COUNTY SHERIFF’S DETECTIVE JAY ARMBRISTER responded to an accident in 2010 in which 21-year-old Cameron Freeman, of Lincoln, Neb., was killed. The accident led him to participate in the Cameron Effect, a Web-based initiative started by Freeman’s family that asks people to commit seven acts of kindness and post updates to the website, Armbrister travels to schools to advocate against drunken driving as part of the project.

Project started to promote compassion, prevent drunken driving accidents By Shaun Hittle

Something about the case struck a nerve in Douglas County Sheriff’s Detective Jay Armbrister, a 14-year veteran law enforcement officer, as he arrived on the scene of a drunken driving fatality accident on Nov. 23, 2010. In one of the cars, four friends had been traveling back to Lincoln, Neb., about 3:30 a.m. after seeing a Lawrence concert.

They’d made the right choices that night, with a designated driver behind the wheel of the Mazda 626. As they drove north on U.S. Highway 24-59, a Toyota Tundra came speeding up behind them. The driver of the truck, Zachary Harrison, a 22-year-old Air Force airman, had made some poor decisions. “When it all happened, it was obvious to me it was a tragedy,” Armbrister said. “It all kind of

struck home. ... We’ve all made poor decisions in the past.” The family of the young man killed that day, the man responsible for his death, and Armbrister have spent the last two years trying to heal and prevent such accidents in the future.

“I’m committed to being a reformer,” Roberts said during a recent interview. “For someone to teach a music class, would you rather have someone who has training in music or pedagogy? The system says pedagogy.” Neighbor contends that Roberts underestimates the need for aspiring teachers to have an understanding of different teaching methods, classroom management, child development and basic child psychology. Education officials contend that the state’s rules, allowing candidates to teach for up to three years while they finish their education coursework, aren’t onerous. “Everybody doesn’t learn the same way,” Neighbor said. “You can’t just go in and teach physics without understanding who you’re teaching it to and how you’re getting across to your students.”

Background Five of the state board’s 10 seats are on the ballot in the Nov. 6 election, and seats in three districts are contested. Neighbor and Roberts are looking to replace Sue Storm, an Overland Park Democrat who’s not seeking re-election. For years, residents of the suburban neighborhoods in the 2nd District have seen their schools as an economic magnet. They’ve been willing to increase local taxes to support them and have chafed at budget constraints imposed by the state. Neighbor, 63, has had mixed success running as a moderate candidate for the Legislature in the past decade. She won a House seat as a Republican in 2002 but lost her 2004 GOP primary to a conservative. She returned to the House in 2006 as a Democrat who’d tied her fortunes partly to thenDemocratic Gov. Kathleen Sebelius. But she lost the House seat in 2010 to another conservative Republican. She has the endorsement of the Kansas National Education Association, the state’s largest teachers’ union. She touts an involvement with local schools that started three decades ago as a parent-teacher association “room mother.” Roberts, 54, has had a varied career that includes stints as a truck driver, radio sports announcer, newspaper sports editor and federal tax examiner.


rolled up between two poles, with viewers seeing between 6 and 12 feet of the painting at a time. Reinhardt said his thought is that the two canvases were part of Parker’s traveling carnivals, a sort of surrogate visual sideshow in the days just before movies became commonplace and certainly before “talkies.” “They would see this rolled across in front of them, and I think that somebody had to be reading some kind of narrative,” he said. But, Reinhardt also cautioned, there’s no hard proof yet that there was a story with it. “That’s my theory, and that’s just the theory, believe me,” he said. Three different groups


He holds degrees in electrical engineering and education, and his “Mr. X” online tutoring service offers help with algebra, calculus, geometry and trigonometry. He ran for the state board in 2008 as an independent candidate, garnering nearly 21,000 votes, or about 14 percent. Storm captured the seat with 48 percent of the vote.



Refocusing the debate This year’s race between Roberts and Neighbor comes amid an ongoing interest among conservative Republicans in turning the debate on education in Kansas to issues other than the state’s level of funding. Conservative Gov. Sam Brownback appointed a task force last month to examine ways to make schools more efficient in their spending of state dollars, and House Appropriations Committee Chairman Marc Rhoades, a Newton Republican, said he’d like to press reform issues next year. And Rhoades said he’s interested in the policy questions Roberts is raising. “The education establishment doesn’t want us to talk about it,” Rhoades said. “I think there are plenty of people who are naturally good, naturally gifted at teaching.” The board’s policies allow someone interested in becoming a teacher to get a license as a “visiting scholar” after documenting advanced studies or extensive training in a particular study, “exceptional talent” or work of “outstanding distinction.” They can teach another two years under restricted licenses as they pursue up to 24 college credit hours of education courses. Roberts said he agrees that people wanting to teach in elementary grades need such grounding in teaching methods and child development. But he contends it’s far less important when it comes to teaching in middle and high school. He said loosening the requirements is likely to help poor schools seeking qualified instructors. But Karen Godfrey, the KNEA’s president, who’s on leave from a job teaching language arts at Seaman High School in north Topeka, contends the rules ensure that all students have qualified teachers. “We wouldn’t put them under the care of a doctor who maybe is good at it eventually,” she said. “I wouldn’t want a CPA who hadn’t met the standards.”

one of the passengers in the Mazda that morning. After the accident, Paul said, his family made the decision to seek accountability, but not revenge. Harrison, stationed in Arkansas but visiting his brother in Lawrence that night, was accused of stealing a newspaper carrier’s truck from Jayhawk Boulevard on the Kansas University campus early that morning and, while traveling at least 78 mph, eventually rammed into the back of the car Cameron was in, killing him and injuring three of his friends. Harrison’s blood alcohol content after the accident was 0.183, more than twice the legal limit. He pleaded guilty to nine charges, including involuntary manslaughter, drunken driving and three counts of aggravated battery. When deputies escorted Harrison, who was sentenced to six years in prison for the accident, out of the courtroom, Cameron’s mother, Shelley, told Harrison the family forgave him. “She reached this unattainable level of compassion,” Armbrister said. Instead of anger, the family focused their energy on compassion and healing, starting the Cameron Effect, a Web-based initiative that asks people to commit seven acts Freeman of kindness. Those who take part post updates to the site, In what Armbrister calls his “first act of kindness,” he put together a presentation, available on YouTube, about the accident and has traveled to Lincoln to speak to colleges and other schools. Armbrister said the presentation is his way of sharing tragedies with the broader community in an attempt to prevent accidents. “I get to learn these lessons,” said Armbrister of the frequent reminders of the dangers of drinking and driving he sees on the job. “But nobody else does.” Armbrister has worked with the Freeman family to coordinate talks in their area and hopes to build on the project with local presentations. “I don’t know why this particular crash affected

in three different locations — Leavenworth, Washington, D.C., and Spokane, Wash. — are now combing archives for information on the artifacts. Here’s what Reinhardt said they do know: He has seen a photograph of a “drawing card” used to attract visitors to different carnival sideshows with the word “Creation” and a painting similar to that on the scroll. One of the researchers, Bette Largent of the National Carousel Association, also has a good idea of who painted them: a man named Thomas G. Moses. “He was the sign painter, and he was in the Kansas City area and the Salina area at the time period,” Reinhardt said, of about 1900. As much as what they are, Reinhardt said volunteers at the museum are working on what to do with them. He said the

size of either banner prohibits a full display. “They’re both 200 feet long,” he said. “This entire building’s only 200 feet long.” Reinhardt said there was talk of editing footage of the painting into a video to show in the museum’s theater, or displaying the banners during special occasions. But in addition to what he said could be months of research, Reinhardt said there is some damage on the outermost parts of the scrolls because of exposure to the air, so the museum is looking into some restoration work. It’s bound to require some more effort. But Reinhardt said, having seen the scrolls in their entirety, that it’s worth it to have something of this nature. “We know it’s valuable; we know it’s unique,” Reinhardt said. “It’s likely one of a kind.”

One of the factors Armbrister points to is that Harrison had made some good decisions the evening before the accident, using a designated driver at some point. It still remains unclear how portions of the incident occurred. Harrison blacked out at some point during the evening, and that’s about the best explanation anyone’s received about the incident.

This summer, crews from Sunflower Paving were tearing out and replacing curbing along Sixth Street. After they completed their work, tall weeds grew in the bare dirt left behind. Now, it appears that grass seed and straw have been thrown on top, but the weeds remain. Who is responsible for this, the city or Sunflower Paving? Megan Gilliland, the city’s communications manager, provided this answer: The city’s policies require that contractors establish a good stand of grass as part of the project terms. Public works staff has been notified to check the area and follow up with the contractor.

Test results That shift in focus is expected to cause changes in the way students are tested in reading and math, and officials say they don’t yet know whether that will cause major changes in how well students perform. It is possible, they say, that students who went through elementary school being taught under the old standards may have trouble adjusting when they are later tested in middle and high school under the new standards. “I don’t think so, but I do think that whenever there’s a new assessment system, we do expect some variable in student performance,” Holden said. “Sometimes it dips a little bit; sometimes it raises a little bit. So, we certainly expect there to be some sort of reaction to that. But knowing what that will look like right now is difficult.” Seaman said she does not expect to see significant changes in test scores. “In elementary school, we’ve got our K-2 teachers already teaching common core,” she said. “Those kids will never take the current state assessments, so those kids, I think, will come in better prepared. Some of the students we have now, I don’t think will necessarily drop, but they definitely will be surprised when they have to answer things that are not multiple-choice, things that are deeper-thinking questions.”

Foreign policy may be the topic, but undecided voters will be the targets when Mitt Romney and President Obama hold their third and final debate tonight. Mobilizing supporters is a priority for both men. It is especially vital for Obama, whose backers are less likely to vote than Romney’s, polls indicate. But with the latest opinObama ion surveys showing the race dead even, it is increasingly likely that the next president will be chosen by Romney a relatively tiny group: swing-state voters who have yet to commit firmly to either candidate. Florida, where the candidates will meet on the Lynn University campus, is a prime example of the down-to-the-wire 2012 fight. Here, as elsewhere, debate season has shifted the presidential contest in Romney’s direction, putting even more pressure on the candidates in their final joint appearance.

Gunman found dead after shooting 7 at spa 3 killed in ‘senseless act’ By Dinesh Ramde Associated Press

BROOKFIELD, WIS. — A Wisconsin man who had been accused of domestic violence and slashing his wife’s tires took a gun into the spa where she worked Sunday and shot seven women, three fatally, before killing himself, a police chief said. The shootings set off a confusing, six-hour search for the gunman that locked down a nearby mall, a country club adjacent to the spa and the hospital where the survivors were taken. The search froze activity in a commercial area in Brookfield, a middle-to-upper class com-

munity west of Milwaukee, for much of the day. Ultimately, he was found dead in the spa. Authorities said it would take time to sort out exactly what happened, and emphasized they were still interviewing wit- Haughton nesses and rescuers and did not have a firm timeline of events. At a news conference Sunday night, Mayor Steve Ponto called the shootings “a senseless act on the part of one person.” The chaos started about 11 a.m. at the Azana Day Spa, a two-story, 9,000-square-foot building across from a major shopping mall. The first officers on the scene found

the building filled with smoke from a fire authorities believe was set by the suspect, Radcliffe Franklin Haughton, 45, of Brown Deer, Brookfield Police Chief Dan Tushaus said. They also found a 1-pound propane tank they initially thought might be an improvised explosive device, Tushaus said. That slowed the search of the building as law enforcement agents waited for a bomb squad to clear the scene. Tushaus said later that police didn’t know whether the gunman brought the propane tank to the spa or whether it was left by a contractor. The search also was complicated by the layout of the building, with numerous small treatment rooms and several locked areas, Tushaus said. While

Former U.S. Sen. George McGovern dies at age 90 By Kristi Eaton and Walter R. Mears Associated Press

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. — George McGovern once joked that he had wanted to run for president in the worst way — and that he had done so. It was a campaign in 1972 dishonored by Watergate, a scandal that fully unfurled too late to knock Republican President Richard M. Nixon from his place as a commanding favorite for reelection. The South Dakota senator tried to make an issue out of the bungled attempt to wiretap the offices of the Democratic National Committee, calling Nixon the most corrupt president in history. But the Democrat could not escape the embarrassing missteps of his own campaign. The most torturous was the selection of Missouri Sen. Thomas F. Eagleton as the vice presidential nominee and, 18 days later, following the disclosure that Eagleton had undergone electroshock therapy for depression, the decision to drop him from the ticket despite having pledged to back him “1,000 percent.” It was at once the most memorable and the most damaging line of his campaign, and called “possibly the most single damaging faux pas ever made by a presidential candidate” by the late political writer Theodore H. White. After a hard day’s campaigning — Nixon did virtually none — McGovern would complain to those around him that nobody was paying attention. With R. Sargent Shriver as his running mate, he went on to carry only Massachusetts and the District of Columbia, winning just 38 percent of the popular vote in one of the biggest landslide losses in American presidential history. “Tom and I ran into a little snag back in 1972 that in the light of my much advanced wisdom today, I think was vastly exaggerated,” McGovern said at an event with Eagleton in 2005. Noting that Nixon and his running mate, Spiro Agnew, would both ultimately resign, he joked, “If we had run in ’74 instead of ’72, it would have been a piece of cake.” A proud liberal who had argued fervently against the Vietnam War as a Democratic senator from South Dakota and three-time candidate for president, McGovern died at 5:15 a.m. Sunday at a Sioux Falls hospice, family spokesman Steve Hildebrand told The Associated Press. McGovern was 90. “We are blessed to know that our father lived a long, successful and productive life advocating for the hungry, being a progressive voice for millions and fight-

Dole remembers McGovern as humble, compassionate Staff and Wire Reports

Former U.S. Sen. and Republican presidential nominee Bob Dole said millions of children are able to eat thanks to the work of former U.S. Sen. George McGovern. The Republican from Kansas released a statement about McGovern following the former senator’s death in Sioux Falls early Sunday morning. Dole and McGovern joined together to create an international food for education and child nutrition program, for which they shared the 2008 World Food Prize. In his statement, Dole said 31 million children participate in the school lunch program. He called ing for peace. He continued giving speeches, writing and advising all the way up to and past his 90th birthday, which he celebrated this summer,” McGovern’s family said in the statement. A public viewing is planned Thursday at First United Methodist Church in Sioux Falls. Funeral services will be Friday at Mary Sommervold Hall at the Washington Pavilion of Arts and Science in Sioux Falls. A decorated World War II bomber pilot, McGovern said he learned to hate war by waging it. In his disastrous race against Nixon, he promised to end the Vietnam War and cut defense spending by billions of dollars. He helped create the Food for Peace program and spent much of his career believing the United States should be more accommodating to the former Soviet Union. Never a showman, he made his case with a style as plain as the prairies where he grew up, sounding often more like the Methodist minister he’d once studied to become than longtime U.S. senator

McGovern a “humble, compassionate and caring man” who looked out for the people who needed a helping hand. Dole said McGovern’s efforts at fighting hunger extended far and wide, and the world “is a better place because of his generous spirit.” McGovern was among the bipartisan cast of political leaders who came to Lawrence in July 2003 to celebrate the opening of the Robert J. Dole Institute of Politics on the Kansas University West Campus. In 2004 McGovern became the second winner of the Dole Leadership Prize, and returned to Lawrence to accept the award.

George McGovern in 1972 and three-time candidate for president he became. And he never shied from the word “liberal,” even as other Democrats blanched at the word and Republicans used it as an epithet. “I am a liberal and always have been,” McGovern said in 2001. “Just not the wildeyed character the Republicans made me out to be.” McGovern’s campaign, nevertheless, left a lasting imprint on American politics. Determined not to make the same mistake, presidential nominees have since interviewed and intensely investigated their choices for vice president.

officers initially thought the gunman had fled the building, they later found his body in one of the locked areas, he said. The bodies of the victims were also found in the spa. Tushaus said investigators were still working to identify them. He said the four survivors were between the ages of 22 and 40. He didn’t know if they were employees at the spa or customers, and it wasn’t clear if the man’s wife was among the victims. Haughton had recently been arrested after witnesses identified him as the person who slashed his wife’s tires, police said. He appeared in court Thursday. A four-year restraining order was issued, and Haughton was ordered to turn any firearms over to the sheriff’s department.

Discouraging number It’s sad to see voter registration in Douglas County going down.


he preliminary voter registration numbers for Douglas County announced last week are disappointing. Despite the fact that the nation faces a pivotal presidential election along with many important state and local races, the county’s voter registration now is about 7 percent below the number in 2008, the last presidential election year. As of last week, the county had 78,402 registered voters, compared with 84,440 in 2008. County Clerk Jamie Shew said additional registrations that are mailed in or forwarded from the Kansas Department of Motor Vehicles this week will cause that number to rise by maybe 1,000, but it still will be well below four years ago. The only explanation Shew offered for the decline was that his office had received fewer registrations from college campuses than in 2008. Perhaps college-age students are less inspired by this election than the one four years ago. There also is a chance that both students and other potential voters were confused or discouraged by the new Kansas law that requires voters to show government-issued photo identification at the polls. Kansas University IDs are issued by a government entity and can be used at the polls, but those issued by a private school, like Baker University, cannot. The decline in students registered in Douglas County may become even more pronounced after Jan. 1, when a new state law will require people registering in Kansas for the first time to show proof of U.S. citizenship. The county’s voter registration has declined despite the fact that its population actually grew by about a 1.2 percent in the last census. The decline appears to be a nonpartisan affair. Democratic registration in the county dropped by about 7 percent while Republican registration dropped by about 8 percent. Registration of unaffiliated voters fell by about 3.4 percent. Some Democrats may be discouraged from voting by the prospect that their vote in the presidential election might not matter in a state that’s almost certain to support the Republican candidate. That’s a weak excuse, especially when this year’s redistricting has produced so many competitive congressional and legislative races. Local voters also will decide an important Douglas County Commission race. Douglas County has a less-than-stellar record for voter turnout. Only about 13 percent of registered voters showed up for last August’s primary election. It would be a sad commentary if the only way the county can boost its turnout figure is by lowering its overall registration.

Serious foreign policy debate needed If you’re still hoping for a serious foreign-policy debate between Mitt Romney and President Obama, your last chance is tonight, when the candidates will focus on global issues. Don’t get your hopes up, however. For one thing, the two men know the public isn’t focused on foreign affairs, which was barely raised by the audience at last Tuesday’s town-hall discussion. For another, the most serious security challenges confronting the country — in the Mideast and South Asia — are so complex and fluid, it’s hard to provide clear answers. This makes for a lot of posturing by Romney (it’s easier for a challenger to insist the answers are obvious) and for oversimplification by Obama. In the hope that tonight’s moderator, Bob Schieffer, can prod the two men to candor, here’s what I’d like to see them address: First, enough already about the attack on our mission in Benghazi, Libya. Amazingly, this was one of only two foreign-policy questions Tuesday. (The other, on China, elicited routine Beijing-bashing by both men.) The Benghazi attack is not the most pressing national security question that confronts us. Issues of diplomatic security fall under the purview of midlevel State Department bureaucrats, not the White House. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton has taken responsibility for any security failures — but so should Republicans who voted to cut the budget for future embassy security needs. Let’s listen to the father of Chris Stevens, the ambassador killed in Benghazi, who has urged that this tragic episode be removed from election pol-

Trudy Rubin

This makes for a lot of posturing by Romney (it’s easier for a challenger to insist the answers are obvious) and for oversimplification by Obama.” itics. Instead, could we please hear a serious discussion of how to deal with new Islamic realities after the Arab Spring? Romney argues that the Islamists emerged because Obama didn’t sufficiently support democratic forces in the region. But, a bit belatedly, Obama did back Tunisian, Egyptian and Yemeni rebels in their struggle. Once their dictators fell, their publics voted Islamists into office, with hard-line Salafis on the margins. Nothing Washington did could have made those elections turn out the way we hoped. So let’s have a discussion: Should the United States support Arab rebellions wherever they lead? Should it support Arab democracy if voters choose governments we don’t like? Would Romney repudiate Islamic governments that won legitimate elections? Will Obama (or Romney) cut off aid to an Islamic government in Egypt if it represses women and minorities? What

if that Egyptian government then threatens to abrogate its peace treaty with Israel? Can this circle be squared? And let’s have an honest discussion about Syria, whose sectarian civil war is poisoning the region. Obama is holding back, letting the Arab Gulf states provide Syrian rebels with light (and inadequate) weapons. Romney chastises the president for timidity on Syria yet differs from him but little: He would only urge the Saudis and Qataris to provide heavier arms to “good” rebels. However, outsourcing this effort is risky: The Gulf states are more likely to aid the Islamists. What happened to Romney’s “leading from the front”? The candidates should tell us how they would choose between two bad options: Would they let the sectarian war continue, even if it spreads all over the region? Assist Syrian rebels who may well turn against us? Let’s hear it, Mitt. What say you, Obama? No simple answers here. And on to Iran. Obama says he’ll prevent Iran from getting a nuclear weapon. Romney says he’ll prevent Tehran from getting the “capacity” to build a weapon. Capacity means the production of sufficient fissile material that Iran, in theory, could further enrich to bomb-grade capacity and, ultimately, attach to a weapon (which also takes time to design). Capacity is also the red line used by Israeli leader Benjamin Netanyahu, who says Iran will acquire it within six months. Does Romney really mean he’d go to war next spring, on Netanyahu’s schedule? Would he really immerse

the United States in another Mideast conflict in his first term? As for Obama, how will he know when Iran is on the verge of getting a weapon? And is Iran — whose economy is reeling from Obama’s sanctions — really the greatest security threat the United States faces? What about Pakistan, which is permeated with Islamist terrorists and has dozens of nuclear bombs? This brings us to the 11-yearold war in Afghanistan, a subject both candidates are pretty much avoiding. Joe Biden said in the vice presidential debate that “we are leaving in 2014, period.” His sparring partner, Republican Paul Ryan, concurred on that date. Yet everyone knows the war is going badly. Despite Romney’s hints that he might slow the withdrawal, the American public wants this war to end. Will Obama agree to leave a follow-on force, something his team is negotiating, which might stabilize the country? If the Afghan forces we’ve trained collapse as we exit, what then? Does either candidate have an answer? Will Romney agree, despite his disdain for negotiations, to talk with senior Taliban who seek a deal? Does either man have any new ideas on policy toward Pakistan, which provides safe haven for Taliban leaders? Whatever the weaknesses of Obama on these issues, I’ve heard no clear alternatives from Romney, and no recognition of the global changes of the last decade. I hope Schieffer will press both candidates for real, not canned, answers. But my expectations aren’t high. — Trudy Rubin is a columnist and editorial-board member for the Philadelphia Inquirer.



From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for Oct. 22, 1912: “The students of the University had a differYEARS ent kind of chapel talk this AGO morning, when Professor IN 1912 D. C. Croissant of the English Department, instead of dwelling upon some theme which has been thoroughly covered before, departed from custom and told his audience about the United State Marine Band, which will give a concert in Robinson Gymnasium at 10 o’clock on the morning of November 2nd. The concert will be given for the benefit of the Women’s Dormitory Fund and those people in Lawrence who are for fine music will have the opportunity of hearing one of the best bands in the world.” — Compiled by Sarah St. John

Musical explores evangelist’s story The hottest ticket on Broadway continues to be “The Book of Mormon,” a musical that pokes fun at the Mormon faith in particular and Christianity in general. It is also full of profanity and blasphemy. If there was a show called “The Book of Muhammad,” the Eugene O’Neill Theatre probably would have been burned down by now. New Yorkers are selective when picking their targets. Now there’s a new musical called “Scandalous,” about a colorful, some would say corrupt, evangelist named Aimee Semple McPherson, founder of the Foursquare Church. In the early part of the 20th century, Aimee was more famous than any TV evangelist today. She combined a considerable amount of show business with an equal amount of religiosity and packed them in at her Angelus Temple in Los Angeles, which remains in operation today, long after her death. “Scandalous” has just begun previews. I saw it in development and thought it excellent. Carolee Carmello, the actress who plays Aimee, is superb. She is on stage most of the show and commands it better than any TV evangelist ever has.

Cal Thomas

In the early part of the 20th century, Aimee was more famous than any TV evangelist today.”

In her prime, Aimee was the scourge of fundamentalists. They denounced her as a fraud, a tool of Satan and worse. And there was ample evidence to support many of their claims. On May 18, 1926, Aimee disappeared for five weeks. She claimed to have been kidnapped and held for ransom. Witnesses placed McPherson in a seaside cottage in Carmel-by-the-Sea with her married radio engineer Kenneth Ormiston. The Los Angeles district attorney filed obstruction of justice charges, a trial followed and McPherson’s fantastical story landed on the front pages of newspapers around the country.

You’d think this would interest a New York audience, which in the past has turned out to see plays about corrupt religious leaders, “Elmer Gantry” comes immediately to mind. And an uncorrupted evangelist named Billy Graham turned out hundreds of thousands of New Yorkers during his 1957 Crusade, filling both Yankee Stadium and Madison Square Garden. The book and lyrics for “Scandalous” were written by Kathie Lee Gifford, who is controversial in her own right, not because she is guilty of any of the sins associated with Aimee, but because she is a Christian who tries to live a life pleasing to the One she follows. There are people who still dislike Gifford for talking so much and so glowingly about her children and husband on the old “Regis and Kathie Lee” show; she now cohosts the fourth hour of the “Today” show on NBC. Gifford, who is a friend, called me to talk about the show she hopes will appeal to all faiths and none. She wants people to know that “Scandalous” isn’t about promoting faith. It is a creative work of theatrical art. It’s entertainment and should be seen as such.

For years, numerous groups, starting with the Moral ReArmament movement of the ‘30s, to the Hayes Commission, which censored Hollywood films of material it deemed too racy, to the Moral Majority, have denounced films, TV shows and the performing arts for their content, but put no real effort into creating better entertainment of high quality that people of faith would see. This failure all but ensured what the late Richard John Neuhaus called the “naked public square,” a culture absent a conservative biblical and cultural voice. Kathie Lee Gifford has created good entertainment and with “Scandalous” she attempts to lights a few candles in a dark arena. Liberals and conservatives, religious or not, ought to love “Scandalous.” Buy a ticket. Go see it. Be entertained. Appreciate the unique power and strength of Carolee Carmello. Secret Service agents study counterfeit bills in order to better identify the genuine article. Even if you’re a skeptic about religion, you might be better able to judge authentic faith after seeing the counterfeit. — Cal Thomas is a columnist for Tribune Media Services.

Kansas soccer ‘unlucky’ in loss

Free State brings more beef on the lines, but it’s the football players with big games that camouflage small frames who could make the night pop loudest in Friday’s city showdown at Lawrence High. Both 7-1 squads dot the football field with undersized athletes who make the foes they slam feel as if a ton of force has jarred them to the bone. Such players inspire freshman football coaches across the nation to share 10 times a day their favorite cliché: “It’s not the size of the dog in the fight; it’s the size of the fight in the dog.” (Nearly every freshman football coach who uses that phrase at some level believes he invented it.) We’ll never know the accuracy of heights and weights because most prep players inflate them, so view rosters with that in mind. A look at key mighty mites from both sides of 15th Street/Bob Billings Parkway, the loosely enforced dividing line for the schools:

Lawrence High Cole Cummins: Listed at 5-foot-8 and 205 pounds, the senior must have had golf balls stuffed in every pocket when weighed, but the senior defensive lineman never comes up short effort-wise. Hunter Haralson: He won a state championship wrestling at 126 pounds last February, and he plays linebacker and sometimes even nose tackle. The program lists him at 5-5, 145. LHS coach Dirk Wedd called Haralson a “huge surprise,” which was probably the first time anybody ever called the senior huge. Will Thompson: Listed at 5-9, 160, the senior is big enough for LHS quarterback Brad Strauss to find him consistently for 100-yard receiving games, and Wedd said Thompson’s one of his team’s hardest hitters. Free State Tye Hughes: A 5-11, 160-pound senior, Hughes has his fingerprints all over a football game. He averages nearly 20 yards per punt return and has a real knack for playing the ball as both a wide receiver and pass defender at outside linebacker. Corban Schmidt: A 5-10, 165-pound senior middle linebacker, Schmidt leads Free State in tackles and is the unofficial team leader in bruising opponents. Look up the word “tough” in the dictionary, and you won’t find it. The word saw Schmidt coming its way, ran right out of the dictionary and has been hiding on the shelf behind the thesaurus ever since. Stan Skwarlo: Middledistance runner and outside linebacker. It’s not a combination often seen, but this 5-11, 170-pound junior masters both. “It is a little unusual, but Stan’s a little bit unusual in the fact that he’s just a tough, tough kid,” Free State coach Bob Lisher said. “He’s a strong kid, he’s a physical kid, and he just doesn’t like to lose.” A surplus of athletes from both sides share that aversion to losing, which is part of what will make this week pass so slowly in anticipation of Friday night.

KANSAS’ BEN MCLEMORE LAUNCHES A SHOT over Switzerland’s Dusan Mladjan during a game Aug. 7 in Fribourg, Switzerland, during the Jayhawks’ European trip. While sitting out last season as a partial qualifier, McLemore compiled a 3.2 grade-point average for 36 credit hours.

McLemore hit books — hard By Gary Bedore

Ben McLemore had a heartto-heart talk with his mom, Sonya, in the summer of 2011 before beginning his academic and athletic career at Kansas University. “She told me to think about three main things. She said, ‘Remember this: B.B.B.,’” McLemore, KU’s 6-foot-5, 185-pound red-shirt freshman basketball guard from St. Louis, said. “I said, ‘B.B.B? What does that mean?’ She was like,

‘Ben, Books and Basketball.’ I heard what she said. I cherish that now. I keep working on my grades and stuff in class.” The NCAA in October of 2011 deemed McLemore a partial qualifier, largely because his transcripts were scattered from four high schools — two in his hometown, as well as Oak Hill Academy in Mouth of Wilson, Va., and Christian Life Center in Houston. Saddled with the stigma of being ineligible for participation in games the entire 201112 season, McLemore did the

only thing he could do: keep his head up while following mom’s advice. He spent countless hours in the gym with fellow partial qualifier Jamari Traylor first semester before practicing with the team second semester in accordance with NCAA rules. Also, like Chicago native Traylor, he hit the books hard. McLemore said he recorded a 3.2 grade-point average encompassing 36 hours of coursework. Please see McLEMORE, page 3B

Unlucky is a term that often gets kicked around in soccer to describe why something went wrong. Following their Big 12 finale against Texas Tech — a 3-1 loss — Sunday afternoon at Jayhawk Soccer Complex, Kansas University’s players and coaches felt not just unlucky but also somewhat confused. The game was tied, 1-1, in the final seconds of the first half when Kansas freshman forward Ashley Williams chased down the ball near the right corner. She could hear the time being counted down by the crowd, so she knew it would be cutting it close, but she played a cross toward the goal before the buzzer sounded. The ball angled toward the goal and appeared to get touched by Red Raiders goalkeeper Victoria Esson before it ended up in the back of the net. Texas Tech coach Tom Stone raced 30 yards onto the field to argue no goal should be allowed while the Jayhawks celebrated, believing they had just taken the lead. After a meeting between the referee, Chris Penso, and his assistants, they determined Williams’ shot didn’t count. “You’ve got to be kidding,” KU coach Mark Francis yelled from the sideline as the KU players returned to their bench perplexed. The controversial play had the Jayhawks (9-7-2 overall, 3-5 Big 12) still scratching their heads after the loss. Williams said she took the shot out of desperation, hoping it would go in, and it did. The referee determined that didn’t matter. “He actually said that I kicked it after the buzzer went off,” Williams said. “I Please see SOCCER, page 3B

‘Or’ no more; Weis to pick QB sooner By Matt Tait

Saturday’s 52-7 loss at Oklahoma was painful for Kansas University’s football team in a lot of ways, but it seems as if the Jayhawks came out of it one step closer to nailing down the identity of their starting quarterback. Who that is remains a mystery for now, but KU coach Charlie Weis said Sunday night that he expected to announce whether fifthyear senior Dayne Crist or red-shirt freshman Michael Cummings would start Saturday against Texas much earlier than he did a week ago. “My guess would be, on

Tuesday, we’d probably pick one over the other as the starter,” Weis said. “I don’t think we’ll go into the game again with it being an ‘or,’ even though we anticipate that there’s a good chance that they both end up playing. I think it’s easier if I come out on Tuesday and say, ‘This is who’s starting the game.’ We’ll probably go in that direction.” Tuesday typically is the day Weis releases KU’s updated depth chart. After having Crist listed as the clearcut starter for the first six Nick Krug/Journal-World Photo weeks of the season, Weis added an “or” to the depth OKLAHOMA DEFENDERS TONY JEFFERSON (1), COREY NELSON (7), and chart between Crist and Chuka Ndulue (98) swarm Kansas quarterback Michael Cummings during the Jayhawks’ 52-7 loss to OU on Saturday in Norman, Okla.

Tide bides time atop steady AP poll By Ralph D. Russo Associated Press Football Writer

Even better than the Bear. Alabama is No. 1 in the AP poll for the eighth straight week, the longest run atop the rankings in the history of the storied program. The Tide has twice previously been No. 1 for seven consecutive weeks — in 1979 when Bear Bryant coached ’Bama to his last national title and in 1980 when the Tide finished sixth. Nick Saban’s Tide is working on trying to win its third national title in the last four seasons. Alabama’s latest No. 1 ranking came with just the slightest smudge. The Tide received 59 of 60 first-place votes after being a unanimous top pick for the last three weeks. Oregon is No. 2 for the fifth consecutive week, though the gap between the Ducks and No. 3 Florida narrowed after the Gators beat South Carolina 44-11. Florida was so good it persuaded one voter to give the Gators a first-place vote. South Carolina was the only team ranked in the top 16 last week to lose Saturday, so the top half of the latest poll only had minor adjustments. Kansas State stayed at No. 4

K-STATE JUMPS OREGON IN BCS STANDINGS NEW YORK (AP) — Only in the BCS standings does Oregon get passed. Kansas State moved ahead of the Ducks and up to No. 3 on Sunday behind SEC rivals Alabama and Florida. The Wildcats’ big victory at West Virginia was enough to nudge them past the Ducks, who are No. 2 in both polls but are getting held back by comafter beating West Virginia 5514. Notre Dame is No. 5 after a 17-14 victory against BYU and LSU remained sixth with a 24-19 victory at Texas A&M. South Carolina dropped from ninth to No. 17.

puter ratings that lag behind the other highly ranked teams. The Crimson Tide (.9625) is still solidly in first, and Florida (.9310) grabbed a firmer grip on second with a victory over South Carolina. The Gators are tops in the computer ratings and Kansas State (.9111) is second. Fourth-place Oregon (.8966), is sixth in the computer ratings. Quarterback Geno Smith and the Mountaineers were fifth in the Top 25 after winning at Texas, then fell flat 49-14 against Texas Tech and slipped to No. 17. A second straight lopsided loss — this time to Kansas State — dropped the Mountaineers (5-2) another eight spots. Their defense has been a mess, and now the offense can’t keep up. After two losses by a combined 76 points — coincidentally the same amount of points they received in the poll — should the Mountaineers be ranked at all? It’s a fair question. Working in their favor is no team in

In and out Cincinnati was the only team to fall out of rankings this week, a stiff penalty for its first loss. Re-entering the rankings this week is Louisiana Tech. The nation’s highest-scoring team beat Idaho 70-28. The Bulldogs had 839 yards, the most by an FBS team in game this season. Odds And Ends Oregon State moved up one spot to No. 7 and stayed unbeaten with a 21-7 victory over Utah. ... No. 9 Ohio State dropped two spots after needing a late rally and overtime to beat Purdue at home. The unbeaten Buckeyes go to Penn State, where the Nittany Lions have won five straight. Neither team is eligible for the postseason.


Okla. St. QB Walsh sidelined for season OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Oklahoma State starting quarterback J.W. Walsh will miss the rest of the season after hurting his knee in a 31-10 victory over Iowa State on Saturday, the latest blow in an injury-marred season. Coach Mike Gundy said Sunday night that he believes Walsh was hurt within the first 10 or 20 plays of the game but never complained or came out of the game because of the injury that will keep him out for the rest of the season. Walsh ended up throwing for a career-high 415 yards and running for 46 more in the win. He threw for one touchdown and ran for another, in the fourth quarter. Gundy said the injury was not career-threatening. “He finished the game. He ran, made throws. I’m speaking a little bit out of turn because it wasn’t an injury that progressively got worse. It just happened and then he was able to play with the pain,� Gundy said. “I can only say that it was a pretty amazing performance. I would hate to use that term for a guy or a player on my team that’s only a freshman, but for him to finish the game the way he did and run the football and never say a word was really a terrific performance.� Walsh inherited the starter’s job after freshman Wes Lunt was hurt in the third game of the season. The two had competed with Clint Chelf for the opening during the spring, after Brandon Weeden was taken in the first round of the NFL draft, with Lunt winning the job. Gundy said he thinks Lunt will be able to start Saturday against TCU, but the Cowboys “haven’t figured that out yet.� Oklahoma State also lost tight end Justin Horton to a seasonending injury. Receivers Tracy Moore and Isaiah Anderson missed last week’s game against Iowa State and backup running back Jeremy Smith was limited. All had injuries that were not disclosed under the Cowboys’ new, more restrictive policy. “I just hate it for them because coaches, this is our life and we understand and we deal with these situations. But it just tears you up inside when you have to see a young man working their tail off get put in those situations,� Gundy said. “As a team, we’re fine. We rally, other guys play and we keep rolling. But it’s just a heartbreaker for a coach when you see a young man that’s out for the year.�

the Top 25 has faced opponents with a better winning percentage than West Virginia’s, who are 33-15 (.686). Still, Toledo (7-1), which finished first among the others receiving votes with 49 points, has a reasonable gripe. The Rockets handed Cincinnati its first loss on Saturday at the Glass Bowl in Toledo, and their only loss was in overtime at Arizona.

MATT KENSETH WINS THE NASCAR SPRINT CUP SERIES RACE at Kansas Speedway on Sunday in Kansas City, Kan.

Kenseth wins ‘wild’ race at Kansas Speedway KANSAS CITY, KAN. — The fast, smooth new surface at Kansas Speedway had the potential to wreak havoc on the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship. The recent repave cluttered Sunday’s race with a record 14 cautions — a season high in the Sprint Cup Series — and contributed to issues that affected at least four title contenders. But the standings looked much the same when Matt Kenseth took the checkered flag in a battered Ford that he banged hard into the wall midway through the race. Kenseth still managed to drive it to his second victory in three races, while Brad Keselowski dodged accident after accident to hang onto his seven-point lead over Jimmie Johnson in the standings with Kenseth four races remaining in the Chase. “I was thinking, ‘Man, this has to be entertaining for everybody to watch,’� Kenseth said. “There was a lot of wild stuff happening.� That was an understatement Sunday, when the longest green-flag run was 35 laps early in the race. Some of the cautions were caused by tire problems; others were for single-car spins, including Chase drivers Johnson, Tony Stewart and Greg Biffle. And, Danica Patrick wrecked herself when she intentionally wrecked Landon Cassill. “You know, everybody has been asking all season long where the cautions have been,� Keselowski said. “Well, they flew to Kansas, and they’ve been hanging out here because there was caution after caution.� Martin Truex Jr. finished second, and Paul Menard was third. Kasey Kahne finished fourth and was followed by defending champion Stewart, who overcame both a spin during the race and a pit-road penalty for leaving his stall with equipment still attached to his car. Clint Bowyer, from nearby Emporia and the winner last week at Charlotte, finished sixth to maintain fourth in the Chase. He trimmed his deficit by three points to 25 behind Keselowski.


Catchings, Fever win WNBA title


Red Sox hire Farrell from Jays BOSTON — The Boston Red Sox have hired John Farrell to be their new manager. The Red Sox obtained the rights to their former pitching coach by trading infielder Mike Aviles to the Blue Jays. Farrell had been the Toronto manager the past two seasons, posting a 154-170 record with two fourth-place finishes. Boston wanted Farrell a year ago, when the ballclub let Terry Francona go after an unprecedented September collapse. But Toronto wanted too much in return. But after Bobby Valentine led the Red Sox to a last-place finish, they pursued Farrell again. This time, the teams agreed on Aviles, who hit .250 with 13 homers and 60 RBIs last season. The Red Sox will get right-hander David Carpenter as part of the deal.


Gainey sets McGladrey record ST. SIMONS ISLAND, GA. — Tommy Gainey narrowly missed golf’s magic number. He happily settled for a course-record 60 at Sea Island and his first PGA Tour win Sunday in the McGladrey Classic. Gainey became the fourth player this year to rally from at least seven shots behind in the final round to win on the PGA Tour. He made seven straight 3s on his way to a 29 on the back nine, and then had to wait more than two hours to see if Jim Furyk or anyone else could catch him. He wound up with a one-shot victory over David Toms, who closed with a 63. Furyk shot a 69 to finish alone in third.

OU dominating in all phases

Peter Schneider/AP File Photo

KU’S BEN MCLEMORE, LEFT, LOOKS FOR A TEAMMATE as he’s defended by Switzerland’s Jonathan Kazadi during an exhibition game Aug. 7 in Fribourg, Switzerland.


Ben was a finalist for KU’s “Crimson Climb” Award for academic excellence at the 2012 Rock Chalk Choice Awards — a black-tie event in September at the Lied Center. “A lot of people didn’t think I could do it,” McLemore said of conquering college classwork. “They thought sitting out would disagree with me, that I wouldn’t be able to stay on my books. I worked hard in class.” That was something new for McLemore, who said he never put in enough time studying in grade school and high school. “I do like class. Class is great,” McLemore said with a smile. “It’s like I wake up (and say), ‘I’ve got to go to class. I can’t wait to go to class.’ In college, you learn so much, like different types of history I didn’t know about in high school. It’s helped me better myself as a person.” KU coach Bill Self met regularly with McLemore last year to monitor his academic progress and state of mind. “He came in my office one day, and I said, ‘How are you doing in school?’ He said, ‘Coach, I like it,’” Self said, emphasizing the word “like.” “He liked learning. There was a different emphasis on what was important to him, which has now made him more balanced. He has matured. You watch him. He’s qui-

Prep F Roberson visits KU J-W Staff Reports

Tyler Roberson, a 6-foot-8, 210-pound senior basketball small forward from Roselle (N.J.) Catholic High School, completed his official recruiting visit to Kansas University on Sunday. The No. 30-rated player in the class of 2013 has also visited SMU and Syracuse and has upcoming trips planned to Villanova and Kentucky. His weekend host was red-shirt freshman Ben McLemore. “Coach (Bill) Self talked to me about what my et, unassuming, a pleaser. He wants everybody to like him, maybe too much. I wish he had a little more ‘dog’ in him, so to speak. We’ll get that out of him in time. This kid works. He’s going to be really good.” KU fans received a glimpse of McLemore’s raw basketball talent at the Oct. 12 Late Night in the Phog. He skied high to finish a slam dunk off a lob pass from freshman Andrew White. “Just from an athletic standpoint — shooting, length, slide, rebounding — he can do about as many things as we have had here,” Self said. “He reminds me a lot of Brandon (Rush, now with Golden State Warriors) in that regard, but we struggled with Brandon being aggressive, if you guys remember. So that is one thing that Ben is

role would be if I decide to come to Kansas. He was just straightforward and he told me that I’d have to work hard if I come to Kansas,” Roberson told jayhawkslant. com. “Coach Self let me know that I’d have to work hard to earn playing time and he talked about what type of player I could become if I went to Kansas. The thing I liked most is how open and honest coach Self was when talking to me.” Roberson is expected to sign with a school during the November signing period. going to have to be good at.” McLemore — he entered college as Rivals. com’s No. 17-rated recruit in the high school Class of 2011 — admits he has been hesitant to speak up, electing to be a sponge in his first three semesters and two summer sessions at KU. “I learned a lot last year, especially from the guards — Tyshawn (Taylor), Elijah (Johnson), Travis (Releford) and (Conner) Teahan,” McLemore said. “They were talking to me every day, especially Elijah, about things I needed to do, things I needed to work on and how I’ve been through some struggles because he’s been through some things, too. “Right now, getting to play, I’m excited more than anything else. I’ve waited for this day to

come. I couldn’t participate last year. I can now. Words can’t explain it. I’m so excited.” Self likes the fact McLemore didn’t belabor one subject last year: his being ineligible. “He’s not a complainer,” Self said. “I thought he was dealt a bad hand, personally (by NCAA). He proved everybody wrong who said he wasn’t academically prepared because he goes and makes a 3.0 and passes 36 hours. Taking basketball away from him in a weird way made him like school. For his life, maybe it wasn’t a bad thing at all.” McLemore’s close family members are, of course, impressed at his development. “He’s working hard, being dedicated and taking advantage of an opportunity to get an education,” said McLemore’s cousin, Richard Boyd. “To accomplish something out of life, you’ve got to work and sacrifice. I tell him you can do anything in life if you put your mind to it. “But it’s always education first in life ... education first.” Who knows? McLemore, a new fan of academia, might even stick around more than one full season to continue his studies while improving his skills for what could be a long NBA career. “I definitely could stay more than one year,” McLemore said. “This is going to be my first year playing. Definitely I could stay, getting the feel of the program and keep on going forward toward my goal.”


don’t really know. I didn’t hear the buzzer. That’s why I kicked it.” Senior KU midfielder Whitney Berry didn’t agree with the ruling. “That was unlucky all around,” she said. “The cross got off, the keeper punches it in to the back of the net, and then the buzzer goes. It’s inevitable that that was a goal.” Francis felt certain the shot came before the buzzer sounded and should have counted, though he admitted he didn’t know the exact last-second shot rules. “Regardless of whether that was a goal or not, we still had plenty of opportunities,” the coach said. The difference Sunday, Francis added, came in Tech’s ability to capitalize on its opportunities. The Red Raiders (13-41, 4-2-1) had second-half goals from Paige Strahan (70th minute) and Briana Rohmer (79th minute), but Tech only outshot KU 17-16 on the day. “We probably should’ve won 4-3 or 5-3 with the op-

The Jayhawks’ lone score came in the 14th minute. Freshman forward Courtney Dickerson easily beat Esson and rolled the ball into the left corner to give KU a 1-0 lead following a misplaced header by Tech’s Mallory Yacullo. Tech later tied the game in the 35th minute when Dawn Ward put a header

past KU keeper Kat Liebetrau on a rebound. Kansas put three shots on goal in the second half — two by Williams and one by junior forward Caroline Kastor — but Esson denied each of them. Francis couldn’t fault any of his players in the loss, saying they played well. But now KU’s postseason hopes are very much in doubt.

“For our season to keep going,” the coach said, “we’re gonna have to win the conference tournament.” The Big 12 tournament begins Oct. 31 in San Antonio. Four of KU’s five conference losses came in 1-0 games. The Jayhawks’ regularseason finale is at 3 p.m. Friday at Jayhawk Soccer Complex against Northern Colorado.

NORMAN, OKLA. (AP) — This is how dominant No. 8 Oklahoma has been leading up to Saturday night’s showdown against No. 5 Notre Dame: At times during a 52-7 blowout against Kansas, even defensive coordinator Mike Stoops thought it was sort of dull. His first-team defense didn’t allow a point for a second straight week, despite a performance that he declared was not “overly sharp.” “Overall, it was a pretty businesslike four quarters for us. They didn’t come in and do a whole lot, and you know, we just played,” Stoops said. “It kind of got a little boring. We just played our base defense most of the night and just played ball.” The Sooners (5-1, 3-1 Big 12) have been clicking not only on defense but in all three phases of the game since a home loss against Kansas State a month ago. The starting offense has scored on 15 of its last 20 drives, including 12 touchdowns. And on Saturday night, the special teams units produced the first game in the program’s storied history with touchdowns on both a kickoff and a punt return. “I think we are in a good spot,” quarterback Landry Jones said after a threetouchdown outing. “The key now is to not get complacent, not think we have

it all figured out and continue to work, continue to sharpen, continue to do the things that we’re supposed to be doing. “I think we’ve got a shot at this thing.” Jones and the rest of his Oklahoma teammates never gave up hope for a national championship after a 24-19 loss to Kansas State on Sept. 22 in their first marquee game of the season. Beating Notre Dame would bolster their case to make it into the title game as a one-loss team, if enough of the undefeated teams ahead of them lose. “I think we should embrace it. It’s your time to shine, time to show everyone not just individually but as a unit, as a group and as a team where we stand,” safety Tony Jefferson said. “We’ve got a lot to prove. ... We’re fighting back, and I think we’re fighting back real well.” Offensive coordinator Josh Heupel seems to be putting the pieces together better after an off night against K-State. “We’ve got a lot of weapons, got a lot of guys that can make those big plays. It’s nice. We’re starting to click, that’s for sure,” Jones said. “We’re starting get our momentum and find who we are as an offense and what kind of offense we want to be.”

Kansas’ Cardona falls in ITA quarters J-W Staff Reports

TULSA, OKLA. — Kansas University freshman Maria Jose Cardona fell in the quarterfinals of the main singles draw Sunday at the ITA Regional Tennis Championships. Cardona lost to Hermon Brhane of Oklahoma, 6-4, 6-1, after winning her first three matches of the tournament. “(Cardona) competed hard, but she was just somewhat fatigued today,” KU coach Amy HallHolt said. “She fought and fought, and I know it prob-


Cummings, indicating that competition for the starting job had been opened up. Cummings supplanted Crist as the starter against the Sooners and played better and longer. Weis said the decision would be based upon how the two played against OU and also how each fits into the this week’s game plan. Each guy’s mental state also figures to play a role. “Handling a quarterback is a little different than handling any other position,” Weis said. Crist has been on the sideline during the fourth quarter of KU’s last three losses and is coming off of a game in which he played very little but added a couple more pages to the disappointing scrapbook that has become his final season of college football. Cummings earned the start against OU based largely off of the spark he provided in KU’s near upset of Oklahoma State but more often looked like the inexperienced, young quarterback he is than the answer for the Jayhawks. Those facts set up a handle-with-care situation. “Because they’re always in the limelight, you can’t handle it exactly the same as everyone else,” Weis said. “You have to treat ’em the same, but you can’t handle ’em the same because there’s a sensitivity factor, and it’s always

ably wasn’t her best game that she played all week. She’s a good little fighter and she beat several topranked players over the weekend.” Cardona defeated Nebraska’s Makie Zeppernick, 7-6 (6), 6-1, in the opening round before battling past Sarah McLean of Arkansas in round two on Friday, 2-6, 7-5, 6-1. She then defeated Wichita State’s Lucia Kovalova in Saturday’s round of 16, 6-2, 6-4. “We’re just so excited for what the future holds for her and for the Jayhawks,” Hall-Holt said.

the story, and everyone wants to know.” Dealing with different players at different stages of their careers with different mind-sets is nothing new for Weis. “If you want a fifthyear senior and a red-shirt freshman, how about Bledsoe and Brady,” said Weis of the New England Patriots’ QB situation during the 2001 season. “That’s as close a comparison as I can give ya. That was a second-year guy who was playing for the first time in his career (Tom Brady) and a guy who had played for a decade (Drew Bledsoe). So, yeah, we’ve dealt with these situations before. It’s never easy no matter what way you handle it.” Tough or not, Weis said he had a hard-and-fast rule. “I like to just flat-out tell ’em, ‘Here’s exactly what’s happening,’” he said. “Normally, when they get into a situation like this, they’re guessing what’s gonna end up happening. Just as long as you’re honest, that eliminates a lot of the problems.” It seems certain that Cummings will get a few more cracks. Although Weis has found plenty of holes in his young quarterback’s play, his critiques at least sound like he’s talking about a player with a future. Asked what he expected his role to be this week, Cummings had little to say. “I don’t know,” he said. “Whatever coach asks me to do, I’m gonna do.”

Jags’ MJD, Gabbert leave due to injuries The Associated Press

Jacksonville lost star running back Maurice Jones-Drew to a foot injury. Then quarterback Blaine Gabbert hurt his left shoulder. This was one rough day for the Jaguars. Jones-Drew was on the field for just two snaps Sunday, carrying the ball on the first two plays at Oakland before leaving with an ailing left foot. When Gabbert departed midway through the second quarter, Jacksonville was in control of the game. But the Jaguars managed only two downs after halftime behind backup quarterback Chad Henne went on to a 26-23 overtime loss. Jones-Drew hurt his foot on the first play and remained on the field for one more run but couldn’t come back after that.

Monday, October 22, 2012

The Redskins also lost a key player during a dramatic road loss. Tight end Fred Davis tore his left Achilles tendon in the first half of Washington’s 27-23 setback against the Giants. He needed help to the sideline and then onto a trainer’s table before he was carted to the locker room. Davis, the team’s leading receiver, will miss the rest of the season. Buffalo lost right guard Chad Rinehart early in the third quarter after he hurt his left ankle blocking during a run by C.J. Spiller. A Tennessee player fell on the back of Rinehart’s leg, forcing Rinehart to be carted off the field. Coach Chan Gailey had no update on Rinehart’s status following the game. Buffalo was already minus starting offensive linemen Kraig Urbik (knee) and Cordy Glenn (knee).

Giants 27, Redskins 23 EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Eli Manning threw a 77yard scoring pass to Victor Cruz with 1:13 to play on Sunday, and New York overcame a late touchdown by rookie sensation Robert Griffin III. Manning’s pass to Cruz came two plays and 19 seconds after Griffin capped what was a potential game-winning, 77-yard drive with a 30yard touchdown pass to Santana Moss. The rookie had kept the drive alive with a 19-yard pass off a desperate scramble on a fourth-and-10 play deep in his own territory and a 24yard run on the next play. Cruz, however, blew by Josh Wilson and Madieu Williams, and the more than 80,000 fans in MetLife Stadium celebrated as Manning triumphantly pumped his fist. Griffin had Washington moving for another score when Moss was tackle by Chase Blackburn after an 11-yard reception and rookie Jayron Hosley recovered at the Washington 43.

SAN FRANCISCO’S PABLO SANDOVAL DOUBLES during the first inning against St. Louis. The Giants won, 6-1, Sunday in San Francisco to set up tonight’s winner-take-all Game 7.

Giants force Game 7 SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Ryan Vogelsong and the San Francisco Giants saved their season once more, pushing St. Louis to a winner-take-all Game 7 in the NL championship series. Turns out the defending champion Cardinals aren’t the only team that’s tough to put away in October. Vogelsong struck out a career-best nine batters in another postseason gem, and the Giants avoided elimination for a second straight game by beating St. Louis 6-1 on Sunday night. Marco Scutaro delivered a two-run double and Buster Posey drove in his first run of the series with a groundout in the first inning as San Francisco struck early to support Vogelsong. San Francisco’s Matt Cain and St. Louis’ Kyle Lohse are set to pitch in a rematch of Game 3, won by the Cardinals. There’s a forecast of rain in the Bay Area during the day. “It’s kind of a joke in the clubhouse. About 60 percent of my games have rain in the forecast,” Lohse said. “I know these guys, I’ve seen them for six games. I know what I need to do. ... It’s time to get it done.” These wild-card Cardinals sure seem to like the all-or-nothing route in October, while San Francisco thrives playing from behind. Five games with their

year on the line, five wins for these gutsy Giants this postseason. Now, it comes down to one game for the past two World Series champions to get back, with the Detroit Tigers waiting. Pitching to chants of “Vogey! Vogey!” from the sellout crowd of 43,070 at AT&T Park, the righthander didn’t allow a hit until Daniel Descalso’s broken-bat single to center with two outs in the fifth. Vogelsong struck out the side in the first and had already fanned five through two innings. “This place is going to be loud, I can tell you that,” Vogelsong said of tonight. Scutaro had no chance

for a collision with Matt Holliday this time. In their first game back at AT&T Park since Holliday took out the second baseman with a hard slide in Game 2, Holliday was scratched about an hour before first pitch because of tightness in his lower back, and Allen Craig replaced him in left field.

Cabrera yukking it up DETROIT (AP) — The Detroit Tigers were in the middle of a workout for the World Series when comedian George Lopez showed up and began milling around near home plate. Almost instantly, Miguel Cabrera was beside him, laughing it up and looking as excited as he’d been all afternoon. “He likes to have fun,” teammate Quintin Berry said. “He enjoys himself. He loves being here, and he likes the loose environment. I understand him having a lot of fun with George and stuff because that’s the same kind of person he is.” Baseball’s first Triple Crown winner in 45 years seems to enjoy hitting and joking around in equal proportion. Fans are plenty familiar with Cabrera’s talent — his consistently high average and awe-inspiring power — but the rest of the Tigers appreciate him for more than that. Cabrera may be shy in front of a camera or microphone, but there’s a goofy side to the third baseman that helps keep his team upbeat. Now in the prime of his career at 29, Cabrera’s ap-

Son marrying girl half his age Annie’s Mailbox

Marcy Sugar and Kathy Mitchell

on what’s happening? — Mom Dear Mom: Your son is 51 years old, and if he wants to marry a girl half his age and give her all of his money, that’s his decision, good or bad. He certainly wouldn’t be the first man to behave this way. We understand your concern, but if you want your son to be part of your life, you will need to accept his decision to marry this girl. Do your best to put aside your misgivings and welcome her. She

Candidates meet for final debate President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney meet in the third and final presidential debate (8 p.m., ABC, CBS, NBC, PBS, CNN, Fox News, MSNBC, C-SPAN, CNBC). Longtime CBS anchor and correspondent Bob Schieffer moderates from Boca Raton, Fla. The ongoing debate spectacle has not exactly brought out profound analysis in the news media. More moments were spent discussing Vice President Joe Biden’s smile than the substance of his and vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan’s remarks and positions. If one has to choose a journalistic low point of the ongoing coverage, it’s hard to do worse than Fox News’ Sean Hannity leading a panel of experts in speculating that Biden was drunk during his debate performance. Moments like these are why I don’t often comment on Hannity and his ilk. Cataloging his thuggish and trashy behavior could become a full-time job.

While the candidates debate, the results are now in on “Kids Pick the President,” an installment of “Nick News With Linda Ellerbee” (7 p.m., Nickelodeon). ‘‘Kids Pick” parallels the straw votes that take place in classrooms throughout the country. While these votes don’t count, of course, they can be telling. I remember when my high school straw vote came within 0.1 point of predicting the actual outcome in a presidential election. But that was a long time ago! The “Kids Pick” winner has gone on to win in five out of the past six elections. In 2000, the “Kids Pick” was Al Gore, who went on to win the popular vote but was denied victory. There is no Electoral College in the “Kids Pick” contest.

Tonight’s other highlights

If necessary, Game 7 of the National League Championship Series (6:30 p.m., Fox).

The trial and the season come to a conclusion on “Switched at Birth” (7 p.m., ABC Family).

Dani has visions of his daughter on the season finale of “Alphas” (7 p.m., Syfy).

The Chicago Bears host the Detroit Lions in “Monday Night Football” (7:30 p.m., ESPN).

During its final season victory lap, “Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations” (8 p.m., Travel) continues to glance back at its greatest hits. Tonight’s clip show includes a Halloween spent in Transylvania, a Day of the Dead ceremony in a Haitian cemetery and a visit to Iraq.

may, in fact, turn out to be a terrific young woman and a good wife. But if things go south, please resist the urge to say “I told you so.” Dear Annie: Based on strong personal beliefs, I made the decision 10 years ago to quit celebrating the major religious holidays. I don’t begrudge others celebrating, and I keep my “bah humbugs” under wraps. Last year, I ended up in a difficult situation. I was patient when my office played holiday music from Thanksgiving to Christmas. I goodnaturedly cut out snowflakes to contribute to the team decorating contest. I even participated in the potluck by baking a batch of cookies. However, I politely declined the secret Santa gift exchange. Unfortunately, my well-meaning supervisor bought me a gift


For Monday, Oct. 22: This year you might feel pushed to the limit at times. Know that you can overcome any challenge, as long as you use others as resources and for brainstorming. If you are single, you meet people with ease, even at home and in odd circumstances. If you are attached, schedule that special trip this year; it will strengthen the bond between you. 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)  If you are looking for a key associate to agree with you, look elsewhere. You will be dealing with this associate in the next month. Tonight: Find your friends. Taurus (April 20-May 20)  Others make demands, and you produce results. There is someone you cannot please, no matter what you do. Tonight: Out and about. Gemini (May 21-June 20)  Reach out for others’ opinions. Someone might have off-the-wall ideas, but do not shut them down. Tonight: Let your mind wander. Cancer (June 21-July 22)  Deal with an irritable boss or a partner who might seem somewhat unstable. Emphasize your libido’s energy. Tonight: Let the good times rock and roll. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)  Know when it’s time to loosen the reins and allow others to take a more dominant role. Certainly, you don’t always have the answers. Tonight: The only answer is “yes.” Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)  Your smooth style makes a

anyway. Please tell your readers that if someone says they don’t participate in the holidays, please respect their wishes. We do not feel left out or deprived. When we receive a gift anyway, it’s rude. It becomes all about you. So, Annie, if it happens again, should I refuse the gift politely? Also, should I complain about the music or just grit my teeth and deal? — Modern-Day Scrooge Dear Scrooge: It’s OK to accept an unanticipated gift without reciprocating. Just say thank you. Complaining about the music, however, is probably an exercise in futility. Bring headphones.

difference to those who are around you on a regular basis. They count on your accuracy and precision. Tonight: Your normal routine. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)  You have a lot on your plate, and you feel strapped in some manner. Count on the unexpected to occur; you might start liking these surprising twists in your life. Tonight: Forget that it’s Monday. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)  You might find that your mood, like a current, is constantly changing. The Sun moves into your sign today, which increases your energy. Tonight: Celebrate good times! Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)  Zero in on necessities. Realize when you have had enough and also when you would like to be more frivolous. Tonight: Where your friends are. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)  Be aware of what is happening within a friendship. You might need to refresh your perspective and move through some preconceived and possibly rigid thinking. Tonight: Buy that item you have been eyeing. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)  You feel as if you have a tiger by the tail. Use your high energy and growing self-confidence to forge ahead in a particular area of your life. Tonight: Do your thing. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)  Maintain a low profile, and listen to what is being said without butting in. Your observations could draw some very steady and important insights. Tonight: Do something just for you. — The astrological forecast should be read for entertainment only.

Dear Annie: My son, “Clark,” is 51 years old and never married. Last month, he met a 26-yearold online. This girl’s mother is only four months older than my son. The girl is younger than my grandchildren. Clark has proposed to this girl and put money in an account for her to use for their wedding. I learned about the wedding dress and the reception hall from my daughter. I know nothing about the girl’s family except her parents are divorced and her mother is living with the man who fathered her little brother. I am a bit leery of what’s going on and worry that this girl is using Clark for his money. When she and her family go out with him, he pays for everything. I care about my son and don’t want him to get hurt. How do I get the two of them to let me in

f every girl’s crazy ‘bout a sharp-dressed man, you can imagine how gaga they’d go for a sharp-dressed dog. This Halloween, make your classy canine a bow tie. I have seen a real bow tie tied onto a dog, but if that’s beyond your skill level, this bow is easy to make and slips onto a dog’s collar with a piece of elastic. My coworker’s dog, Gus, gamely modeled the bow tie. He’s going as James Bond for Halloween.

Gus’ collar is 7/8 inch wide with a clip opening, which is how I decided my measurements of the center piece of the bow and the elastic. For a smaller dog, you can adjust the dimensions to make a smaller bow. SUPPLIES

INSTRUCTIONS 1. Cut an 8 inch square from your fabric. Then cut a 2-inch strip from one side,

giving you a 2-inch by 8-inch rectangle and a 6-inch by 8-inch rectangle. The large rectangle is for the bow, and the narrow strip is for the center. 2. Fold the large rectangle in half, right sides together, to make a 4-inch by 6-inch rectangle. Sew around the open edges with a 1/4-inch seam, leaving a 1-inch to 1.5-inch turning hole. I left the turning hole in the middle of the long side, where it will be least noticeable. Flip the rectangle right-side out and hand sew the turning hole closed. 3. Fold the narrow rectangle in half, right sides together, so the strip is 1 inch wide. Sew along the long open side with a 1/4-inch seam. Leave the short ends open. Flip right-side out. 4. Cut two 1.5-inch pieces from the narrow tube you just sewed. Cut a 2-inch piece of elastic.

5. On the tubes, move the seam to the center. Lay the tubes together with seams facing out, and sandwich the piece of elastic between them. Sew the three pieces together at each cut end with a 1/4-inch seam. Turn right-side out. The elastic will be the back side. 6. Slip the large rectangle through the center piece and arrange the bow to your liking. On the back side of the bow, use tiny stitches to hand sew the center piece to one of the folds in the back layer of the bow. I did a few stitches on each side. The bow is ready. Slip the elastic onto the collar for any formal occasion. Weddings, New Year’s, black-tie galas — you name it, your dog will be dashing. — Go! editor Katie Bean can be reached at 832-6361.

Barbering instructor teaches job skills to prisoners BY ADAM STRUNK


iving prisoners convicted of violent crimes razor blades in a confined space might seem like a recipe for disaster. Vicki Rajewski says it’s more of a recipe for rehabilitation. Rajewski, of Topeka, works at the United States Disciplinary Barracks at Fort Leavenworth as a barbering instructor. She teaches about 16 prisoners a year everything they need to know to be a barber: how to cut hair, how to interact with clients and how to give a shave with a straight razor. The goal: to provide prisoners with a livelihood on the outside. “It allows them to integrate back into the community,” she said. “Barbershops have always been a cornerstone from the smallest community and the smallest neighborhood to the grandest neighborhood. It’s important that these guys develop that skill and that sense of being a part of the community they go back to.” She admits there are risks involved in her work, but she has rarely seen an incident more than a raised voice or a scuffle. “I go in with the understanding that I am in their environment. It’s like sharks — if I go in the water I am in their environment.” It might be a bit of a rougher crowd than she’s used to, but she said treating the prisoners with fairness and consistency goes a long way in earning their respect. Rajewski explained that taking the class is a privilege. Applicants are screened beforehand and have short sentences remaining, and sex offenders are not allowed in the program. There are always guards in her barbershop inside the prison. “We count the blades,” she said. “That’s the main thing. When they come to work they are given their tools, and when they go to lunch the tools are taken back.” The prisoners also do their own sort of self-regulation. “The other inmates don’t want to be less safe than you or I,” Rajewski said. “They are going to kind of steer people away that they don’t want in the program. Because there is that level of prison interaction that I’m not privy to where they say to someone, ‘No, no, no, you don’t want to do this.’” The 14- to 15-month class she teaches, funded by the federal government, involves about 1,500 hours of book work and hands-on experience. After the first week of class, the prisoners are cutting hair. They have a pool of about 425 prisoners to practice on, as well as some of the prison guards. “It’s unusual to think that staff members come in and get a haircut and sometimes a razor shave by the same inmates that they deal with every day, so you know it speaks for itself at that level of trust,” she said. Completing her class and passing their exams allow

prisoners to earn a barbering certification from the state of Kansas. Besides providing a livelihood, Rajewski added that the program has a way of making the gray world of the prison seem a bit brighter. The class transforms the area from a place of confinement to a neighborhood barbershop where prisoners joke, relax and interact. “It’s sort of that camaraderie that you build on that makes them more confident and more likable, because that’s important within the barbering industry.” This sort of transformation and the skills it provides inmates makes the job a “dream” for Rajewski. However, reaching this dream took nearly a quarter century. Rajewski, a barber for more than 30 years, decided she wanted to teach prisoners to cut hair about 25 years ago when she went to supervise a barber examination at the U.S. Disciplinary Barracks. “I thought, wow, what an interesting place,” she said. She got her barbering instructor permit and a few year slater was offered a position at the prison. “The timing wasn’t right, and I thought, wow, there went my dream job.”

Seven years later, she was offered the position again. However, her husband had recently died in a car accident, and she had responsibilities. “I thought, I had little kids and I can’t put myself at risk like that every day. It was just a dream I had to let go.” Fast forward to 2008, and again the job became open on a temporary basis. This time, Rajewski had passed the age limit for the job, but because it was a temporary job, they hired her on for a year, and then another year. Rajewski’s position is now permanent. “Third time’s a charm,” she said. “It was 25 years ago and still is my dream job.” It’s the sort of job where she feels like she’s making a difference. “As you watch them become more confident, their skills improve,” she said. “You say and do things that I believe helps build that confidence. So you try to encourage them all that you have it all in your mind and you know everything you need to know to succeed at what you do. It’s the same as being a citizen, being a barber, being a parent, being a spouse. Hopefully that’s what they’ll carry forward.”





‘THIS PLACE IS HAUNTED’ Some spooked at downtown fire station BY MARGIE CARR


irefighters are known for their courage and tolerance. They pretty much have to have both if they’re going to risk their lives to keep others safe — and live so closely with co-workers while doing it. They also tend to be fairly level-headed. If you’re looking for a place where people talk about spirits and otherworldly phenomena, you wouldn’t expect a fire station to be the place. All of which makes the occurrences at Lawrence Fire Station No. 1, 746 Kentucky St., even more unusual. In the 1980s, Robert Babcock was assigned to Station No. 1. In addition to his regular firefighting duties, he had been given a special assignment involving graphic design, work he completed in a basement office under the east staircase, in “a creepy part of the building.” “There were times when I’d be up all night, and the elevator would just open on its own — and it would be one o’clock in the morning,” he says. But this isn’t the kind of stuff a firefighter talks about. What would people think? Instead, Babcock chalked it up to “mechanical vagaries … just an elevator thing.” In 2009, he was again assigned downtown. He no longer had an office in the basement, but there were still parts of the station that unnerved him. “There’s this area on the stairs going into the hose tower,” he says. “I’d noticed it time and again. I’d pass this point and just hurry to get out of it.” The area was so disturbing that Babcock decided he would get an outside perspective: his wife, Michelle. “She’s the sensitive one,” he says. “I can be pretty useless when it comes to stuff like this, but not Michelle — she can feel stuff like this.”

LAWRENCE FIRE STATION NO. 1, 746 Kentucky St., was built in the 1950s. A few people have reported unsettling sights at the station. A few days before her husband’s retirement, Michelle came down to the station for a visit. “I didn’t tell her anything at all about the area,” Babcock says, “but the minute we got to the stairwell, she said, ‘This place is haunted.’” Babcock then started up the stairs, toward the point that had always troubled him. “I turned around, and she was still at the bottom of the steps. She didn’t follow me. She stood there and said, ‘There’s something there, and it’s not good. It’s not human, and it has red glowing eyes!’” “I don’t like (anything) that’s not human,” Michelle says, “and that thing did not seem human!” Michelle Babcock has her own perspective on why something may be lurking around Station No. 1: “There’s a lot of activity at fire stations … and some people just don’t want to give up; they have unfinished business.” And on that point, there is no doubt.

The area around Station No. 1 has seen a lot of activity over the years. Early Lawrencians frequented the Market House Building, which was located on the property and was the place for farm produce. Other commodities such as coal, hay and wood were also weighed and sold there. The city purchased a section of the land in 1865, and later the Market House Building, and it became home to many municipal functions such as the police department, the fire department and a justice of the peace. It was also the site of the city’s overflow jail. This structure was razed in 1950 to make room for the existing building. Before housing Senior Services, the east wing was home to the police department and included holding cells on the second floor and a pistol range and armory in the basement. Capt. Allen Johnson, who has been with the fire department since 1974, has never experienced anything unusual at

Station No. 1, but whenever he is in the building’s dormitory, he thinks about one of the firefighters who died there years ago. “When I came on, I was told of a firefighter that was sent up to buff the floors in the dorm area. When he didn’t come down, they found him dead, slumped across the bed,” he says. “They think he had a heart attack. “That’s always in the back of my mind when I’m up there alone and the old boiler is cracking and popping.” Could any of this history explain the inexplicable experiences of two other firefighters at Station No. 1? Neither man wanted to give his name, and both only agreed to speak on condition of anonymity. Both incidents happened at night, while the men should have been asleep in the dorm. “It was so freaky,” the first firefighter says. “I went to bed, lay down and fell asleep. I woke up, and floating above me


was a black, cloud-like figure with red eyes. I tried to scream, but I couldn’t. And I couldn’t move. I was paralyzed. “Finally I was able to scream, and I woke everyone up … and they all made fun of me.” If that wasn’t eerie enough, the firefighter saw a similar incident happen with his co-worker sometime later. “I could see the black cloud right across from me. I saw him try to yell and reach up to grab at something.” The second man describes this experience: “I was asleep — but it doesn’t seem like I was sleeping because this didn’t feel like a dream — but I was laying on my side and I heard something like newspapers rustling behind me. It got my attention, so I rolled over to see what it was, and this black thing came up next to me and hovered above me. It started quivering, and I watched it. I tried to grab it but couldn’t, and I couldn’t get sounds to come out.” Instead of a cloud, he saw something that was more “the shape of an old arrowhead and about 1 to 2 feet long.” Whatever it was, it had red eyes.

A TOY FIRE TRUCK rests on a bookcase at Lawrence Fire Station No. 1. Some firefighters say they’ve seen a dark figure with red eyes in the dorm area.

“It was so real it kinda bothered me,” he said. “I guess I was asleep; it just doesn’t seem like a dream.” Nothing like this experience with the mysterious, red-eyed floating creature had ever happened to either firefighter before, or has occurred since. The firefighters don’t have to worry about convincing the Babcocks that something creepy happened at Station No. 1. “There are a lot of people who say ‘I don’t feel anything, I don’t see anything,’ but I think it has a lot to do with

the person and their ability,” Robert says, “if they’re open to it.” Another individual who keeps an open mind about the existence of supernatural beings is Fire Chief Mark Bradford. “I’ve heard the stories about Station One,” he says, “but I’ve never experienced anything unusual down there.” But that doesn’t mean he isn’t willing to consider others’ experiences. “I’ve always kept an open mind when it comes to things like extraterrestrials,” he says. “I’m not one to say they don’t exist.”

Double TAKE

Katie: Every year I was in junior high, the guidance counselors showed a PowerPoint on making post-high school plans. First we’d calculate our GPAs, determine the number of credits we needed to graduate, and then consider a bar graph comparing the average salaries between high school and college graduates. The point of the presentation? You have to go to college to be successful. For most students, some form of post-secondary education — whether a traditional four-year college, JUCO, or vocational technical school — is the best post-high school destination. Our minds are far from finished when we toss up our caps at graduation, and the time spent between high school and the workforce is integral in both our socialization and acquirement of new skills. Unfortunately, college is being sold to kids as something like a printing press of cash, with the value of a degree measured in dollars, not in the intellectual lessons and life experiences learned. In kindergarten, we’re told we can be anything we want to be. In high school, we’re told we can be anything we want to be — if we can make money at it. It is wise to guide young adults toward self-sufficiency. But with the blank canvases of our lives yawning before us, that “if” clause generates a mountain of anxiety climbing into a cloud of question marks. Who and what can I become? Will I succeed in life? What happens if I fail? I don’t know the answers to those questions. Few teenagers do. But I do know that if we all go to college expecting that our diplomas will easily shed a pile of Benjamin Franklins, we’re not going to learn or earn much. Jobs are important — careers are even better. But as we transition out of high school, students should make their educational plans based on individual goals, not

DR. WES CRENSHAW AND KATIE GUYOT on bar graphs and statistics. Each student’s college experience will be unique and personal because there’s more to an education than the salary that comes after it. Dr. Wes: Katie’s column made me want to stand up and shout, “Amen,” and to join hand-in-hand with teens and parents, take a deep breath and for a moment bask in the peace and harmony of a better tomorrow for our teens. She’s right. No matter what kind of higher education you pursue, it should be about, well, higher education. If you learn to weld, you should do so because you love the art, science and sheer beauty of welding. But it might also be worth knowing that welding is a highdemand profession right now. Why spend all that time learning a trade, only to find yourself doing something else, something you hate, all because nobody needs what you learned? America sends more kids to college than any other nation. Makes you want to salute the flag, doesn’t it?

The problem is that we also have the highest college dropout rate in the world because too many of those kids, including quite a few who did well in high school, have no idea why they’re in college. They just wake up one day in Beauregard Lecture Hall with 954 other kids learning chemistry and they say something like, “Oh shoot! How did I get here?” Then they become statistics. And by the way, student loans are difficult to pay back if you drop out, and they’re exempt from bankruptcy. So considering post-secondary education as little more than an ATM absolutely detracts from the greater and permanent good it can do for each young person it touches. But likewise, treating it only as a path to self-actualization (or worse, a path to the ultimate party) misses the point every bit as much. Instead, late teens must strike a balance between what fulfills them intellectually, spiritually and emotionally, and what will yield a real paycheck. And last but not least, they must always use their educational opportunities to learn how to learn. Our world has changed to an astonishing degree in the eight years since Double Take began. You can bet it will change tenfold more over the working life of our current teens. I don’t know where they’ll be in 10, 20 or 30 years. I don’t know what they’ll be doing to earn a living then or how they’ll prepare themselves to do so. I don’t know what sort of economy they’ll find or which new challenges they’ll face when they get there. But I do know that’s where they’ll be, and they’ll have to be ready. And apart from good luck, education is the only way to make that future pay. So, whatever you do, make that education count. — Send your confidential 200-word question on adolescence and parenting to

ack-o’-lanterns are popular at Halloween for good reason. They have a lot of character, they’re fun to make, and they glow. But like any vegetable, cut-open, unrefrigerated pumpkins can get messy and moldy, and they don’t last all season. For a cleaner and longer-lasting alternative, there are endless no-carve options, from basic to blingy. Go! scoured Pinterest boards and magazine websites and picked a few of our favorite ideas to make and share. We used real pumpkins on our crafts — we like the personality. However, artificial pumpkins would work for all these crafts, too. And instead of lasting through just this season, your handiwork will last year after year.

But when he planted 15,000 pumpkin seeds at his Brooklyn Park, Minn., farm this year, he became part of a fledgling national campaign to add a new product for Breast Cancer Awareness Month: the pink pumpkin. “There’s a lot of pumpkin farmers out there, but not a lot of pink ones,” said Bouwman, standing in a field of lightpink pumpkins last week. “This was a combination of a new product, a new opportunity, and most important, a way to support a cause that affects nearly every family.” After years of blitzing shopping malls, grocery stores and restaurants, the breast cancer charity movement has landed in farmers’ fields. At least three Minnesota vegetable growers, and about 50 nationally, are launching the unusual campaign organized by a new foundation prodding farmers to think pink. The board chairman of the aptly named Pink Pumpkin Patch Foundation ( is Don Goodwin, president of Golden Sun Marketing in Minnetrista, Minn. The fruits of the foundation’s labor can be found at some of Minnesota’s best-known grocery stores as well as smaller grocers across the metro area. They’re among about 900 retailers nationally that have picked up the product during its trial season, Goodwin said. “It’s going surprisingly well,” said Gunars Sprenger-Otto, produce manager at Fresh Seasons Markets in Victoria and Minnetonka, Minn., which sold about 80 pumpkins over the past two weeks. Sales picked up after he set up a pink poster announcing, “American Pumpkin Growers have donated a portion of Porcelain Doll Proceeds to Cancer Research.” The “porcelain doll” is the name of the new seed. The poster comes courtesy of the foundation, which has begun marketing the product in earnest. The pumpkin fundraiser sheds light on how some other pink products wind up on store shelves every October, which is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. A Colorado pumpkin breeder discovered a pink pumpkin in his field about five years ago, Bouwman said, and spent several years developing the seed. The breeder approached Goodwin, a marketing veteran who had previously worked with Target produce. They decided to associate the product with breast cancer awareness, and to use an October roll-out to coincide with breast cancer events and Halloween. Farmers who bought the seeds signed a contract pledging to give 25 cents from every pink pumpkin to breast cancer research. Their donations are funneled through the small foundation, which has a five-person board of directors. The foundation will evaluate its earnings later this year and solicit grant applications from community groups, Goodwin said, who like most Minnesotans knows friends who have battled breast cancer.

FROM LEFT, BRONWEN AND MAC BOUWMAN PLAY in their dad’s field while helping harvest pink pumpkins Oct. 5 in Brooklyn Park, Minn. Bert Bouwman, of Brooklyn Park, Minn., will donate 25 cents from every pink pumpkin he sells to breast cancer research. He planted 15,000 seeds.

“It’s hard not to find an adult who hasn’t been affected by this terrible disease,” he said. Bouwman and several of his children were harvesting hundreds of pumpkins recently as winds whipped the fields of his farm, which also put on the Twin Cities Harvest Festival and Maze. Shivering children clipped the pumpkins from the vines and Bouwman transported large boxes of the picked fruit with a front-end loader. Bouwman grows other unusually colored pumpkins, such as white and peach. He’s been pleasantly surprised by the demand for the pink, which aren’t ideal for carving jack-o’-lanterns, but make for attractive fall displays. “I’m shipping them to other states, too,” he said. “Missouri wanted two semi loads. I told them they could have one.” Because the pink pumpkins have not been grown in Minnesota before, Bouwman is hyper-alert to such weather stresses as lack of water and cold temperatures. But so far, so good, he said.

The folks at Bergmann’s Greenhouse and Gardens in Stillwater, Minn., weren’t quite so lucky. Their pink pumpkin patch near Marine on St. Croix, Minn., attracted some unwanted admirers. “The deer loved them,” said Peggy Neurer, a greenhouse worker. “They’re very sweet.” So sweet that the deer essentially wiped out the entire crop, she said. That said, Bergmann’s is likely to make a donation to breast cancer research anyway, she said. Jerry Untiedt, of Untiedt’s Vegetable Farms based in Waverly, who’s selling pumpkins at a half-dozen pumpkin lots around the Twin Cities, has had better luck. Like Bouwman, he thought he’d check them out this first year, see how they fared. He grew a couple thousand this season. Untiedt said he was drawn both to the cause and to the foundation running the pink pumpkin campaign, which has no paid staff or office overhead. He expects he’ll grow even more pink pumpkins next year. Goodwin is keeping his fingers crossed that other growers feel the same. It helps that the pumpkins have been picked up by some high-profile grocers. Goodwin and his board will sit down later this year and decide how to proceed in 2013. “Right now it’s encouraging,” Goodwin said.

Open mouth, insert food


ecently one of my former clients emailed me asking for some advice and guidance. She announced that she had “officially” fallen off the exercise wagon, the nutrition wagon, and the “all-things-in-moderation wagon” and thus had decided to forgo worrying about any of those issues until next month. She said she was completely exhausted all of the time, regardless of how much sleep she got, and that she just had no energy. Does this sound at all familiar to any of you? It certainly does to me! I’ve never been able to fully conquer that “change of seasons” metabolic seesaw. It seems as though just when it becomes truly beautiful outside and just as so many activities really begin to pick up, my energy levels plummet. And that is not a good thing, my friends, because, like many of you, I have way too much to do to allow fatigue to knock me off my game! But there are several ways to make sure that you feel strong, healthy and energized right now, without having to step back and wait for a new month to begin. Because that is definitely not a good thing. Whether you are trying to lose weight or simply working out because you love to feel strong and fit, there is one thing that you must do: You have to eat well. You can’t just drastically cut your caloric intake and say, “Oh, I need to drop 10 pounds, so I’m not going to eat.” In order to stay energized, you have to pay attention to what you put into your mouth. It’s that easy. Do you want to avoid the mood swings and up-and-down energy crashes? Then you have to keep the amount of sugar in your blood stable. This is directly tied to your energy level. You’ve heard this before, but it’s important to try to eat several small meals and snacks throughout the day, preferably with complex carbohydrates. These are digested and absorbed slowly, so they won’t require your pancreas to produce too much insulin. In layman’s terms, your energy level and your mood will remain stable, and you’ll avoid that sugar crash around 2 or 3 in the afternoon. Serotonin is another buzz word that we throw around, and it’s another thing that you need to help you feel motivated, energetic and happy. It’s a neurotransmitter that affects and regulates our mood. When serotonin levels drop, we may feel depressed, tired and lethargic.

JENNIFER OSBORN A word to the wise: If you feel like this and you are also craving carbs a lot, this is a strong indication that you may need more serotonin. That all sounds very serious and official. And it is. When something as simple as eating the right combination of healthy foods can affect our energy levels, affect the way that we think and help to determine whether we bite someone’s head off for a small transgression, that is a pretty powerful thing. And we owe it to ourselves to take care of our bodies and our minds so that we can take care of others. Because that’s what we do, right?

FIT TIPS TO KEEP YOU SANE 1. Choose a small glass of juice before you work out in the morning instead of coffee. It’s more effective for boosting your energy. 2. EAT BREAKFAST! Fruit is a wonderful way to begin. 3. Have small meals or snack throughout your day to keep your blood sugar stabilized so that you are a nicer person! 4. Eat a small snack before you work out and a blend of protein and carbs within 30 minutes after you are finished. 5. Stay hydrated. I am not a big water fan, but I force myself. I’ve tried to avoid it, but trust me — this is not smart and doesn’t work. Big mistake, and lesson learned. Let me know how you are doing! I love to hear about your successes! — Jennifer Osborn can be reached at

The best part about blazers? You can throw them on over almost anything to dress up an outfit. ALI EDWARDS


he transition from summer into fall into winter is always a difficult one for me. I’m a sun fiend and a claustrophobe; winter and heavy coats aren’t my thing. Every year, I make myself miserable for about two months by dressing in a completely weather-inappropriate way before I finally give in and accept that it’s winter. This year, though, I’m determined to take some preventative measures to guard against any thermal misery. In fact, I’ve already bundled up with a scarf and mittens a time or two this fall, but I’m staving off the heavy coat for as long as possible. If you’re like me, try making the transition from tank top to trench coat a bit less drastic by incorporating a blazer, one of this season’s top trends, into your fall outfit.

The best part about blazers? You can throw them on over almost anything to dress up an outfit, though the ones I mention below look best paired with straight-leg jeans or slacks. For shoes, choose at will: heels, wedges, flats or boots all look great. NEUTRAL BLAZER WITH MODERN DETAILS If you are more of a traditional dresser and want to maintain a classic look, try a fitted black or tan blazer with some understated details like funky stitching or oversized buttons. These details and slight modifications like rolling the sleeve cuffs will maintain your traditional style without making you look like a politician. In the case that you actually are a

politician, you might want stick to the traditional black blazer, without large buttons. PATTERNED BLAZER Patterned blazers are by far my favorite (big surprise, I know). Most of the patterns you’ll find on blazers this season are vintage floral patterns and stripes. I’m a big fan of stripes, and we’ll be seeing even more of them as we move toward spring 2013. Floral patterns had a large debut in spring/summer 2012, and they’re continuing throughout fall, especially on blazers and on slim-leg jeans. Patterned blazers work well with simple, neutral-toned shirts worn underneath. AP Photos

BRIGHTLY COLORED BLAZER I have the feeling that brightly colored blazers may be here for only the next season or two, so if you’re going to introduce one into your outerwear rotation, now is the time to do it. Try a colored blazer that takes its hue from the warm end of the spectrum (yellows, oranges, reds) to mesh with the changing leaves this fall, or a bright- or pastel-colored blazer that will carry you through the gray tones of winter. These blazers, like the patterned ones, typically pair well with simple neutral-toned shirt underneath. For some added glam, add a chunky metal necklace. — Ali Edwards can be reached at

Costume doesn’t add up

River City Jules

hile trying to come up with a costume for Halloween this year, my sister had a recommendation. “Why don’t you go as Three-FourThree?” she offered with a smirk. I had hoped she would forget by now … To my credit, I was only 10 years old. I was coming off the worst Halloween costume in my own personal history from the year before, a ladybug costume I manufactured myself by sewing a few large black circles onto the back of a red sweater. I stuffed the back of the sweater with a pillow, donned an antennae-adorned headband and spent the next hour and a half trick-or-treating and explaining that I was actually a ladybug, not a hunchback. But Halloween 1981 would be my year to be the hit of the ‘hood. Neighbors would long remember it as the year that clever Thies girl came trick-or-treating as a package of M&M’s, a costume she ingeniously fashioned herself. The concept was terrifically simple: just a black trash bag and masking tape. No template or guide, for I was highly familiar with the artwork on a package of M&M’s. I carefully spread the black trash bag onto the living room floor and, starting at the closed end and working my way to the open end, created the first “M” with the masking tape. The ampersand between the Ms, with all of its curls and loops, was impossible to make with masking tape, so I dumbed down my design to the more elementary version of a “+” symbol with a line connecting the south and west points. I taped down the final “M” and cut head and arm holes in the bag just in time to hit the sidewalks of Overland Park. Unbeknownst to me, however, when I

turned the bag 90 degrees and slid it over my head, smoothing it out down past my knees, it no longer read “M+M,” but more closely resembled a crude, cave-like drawing of the numbers “3 4 3” stacked vertically. Doorbell after doorbell we rang, and every time the homeowner would marvel at our costumes. “What adorable cowboys,” they would coo over my brothers in their coordinating cowboy hats. “And Miss America!” they would gush over my sister, twirling in her gown and tiara. “And … Three-Four-Three?” they would ask me in confusion. “I’m M&Ms,” I would reply, tilting to the right in my trash bag. For the next hour and a half I roamed the neighborhood balancing sideways on my right foot every time someone answered the door, hoping I could get my share of Almond Joys without explanation. I am sure the neighbors long remembered me, though not in the way I had planned. But I had a bag of candy full enough to last through Valentine’s Day, if not Easter. And that was treat enough for me. — Julie Dunlap can be reached at

Fruit flies breed on fresh or rotting fruit and vegetables, in trash cans, on dirty mops and in unused sink drains.


Eradicate fruit flies


ruit flies are relatively harmless pests, but with a 10-day life cycle and the ability to produce 500 eggs in a lifetime, it doesn’t take long for these pests to reach epidemic proportions. Prevention and elimination are key to controlling fruit fly populations. Step 1: Prevent fruit flies from appearing by storing fruit and other produce in a covered dish, a paper bag or in the refrigerator. Step 2: Keep compost outside or in a sealed container. Avoid placing food waste in waste baskets or indoor trash receptacles. Step 3: Keep sinks and drains free from debris and food waste. If dishes and glassware are left to accumulate in the sink or dishwasher, rinse them thoroughly before walking away. Step 4: Rinse cans and bottles before recycling them. Step 5: When fruit flies appear, find the source and eliminate it as soon as possible. Fruit flies breed on fresh or rotting fruit and vegetables, in trash cans, on dirty mops, in unused sink drains, and in alcohol or sugary drink residue. Step 6: Once the source has been eliminated, catch adult fruit flies in traps to

curtail reproduction. Terro makes an attractive fruit fly trap that looks like a piece of fruit, but collects flies in a small liquid reservoir beneath its funnel-like opening. Step 7: Fashion a homemade fruit fly trap in a glass jar or bottle. Pour an inch or less of apple cider or red wine vinegar into the bottom of the open container. Top the vinegar off with two or three drops of liquid dish soap and cover the top of the jar or bottle with a layer of plastic wrap held loosely in place with a rubber band. Step 8: Poke a small hole into the center of the plastic wrap and lightly press the plastic wrap down to create a makeshift funnel into the bottle or jar. Make sure the hole is big enough for the flies go through, but small enough to impede their exit. Step 9: Alternatively, turn a standard spider glue trap into a fruit fly trap by placing a small cotton ball soaked in vinegar at the center of the trap. Lay the trap near the area the fruit flies are accumulating in. It may be necessary to re-wet the cotton ball periodically. Dispose of traps after fruit flies have been eradicated. — Linda Cottin can be reached at Class schedule:

Fun Halloween activities for the family STATEPOINT


alloween is fast approaching. Make this season extra special for your kids by getting them in the spooky spirit with some great Halloween reading and hands-on activities. EERIE READING With all that homework that comes with a new school year, you may be hard

pressed to get your kids to do any extra reading. However, a fun Halloween book will earn their attention. Check out “Professor Gargoyle: Tales From Lovecraft Middle School #1,” by Charles Gilman, the first in a new series about the strange world of a creepy middle school. With a science teacher who morphs into a monster before you even open the book, this is one book you can judge by its cover, and it may also inspire a great costume.

A nod to H.P. Lovecraft, the iconic horror author of the 20th century, this book is ideal for boys and girls ages 10 and older. To learn more about the book, visit CREEPY CRAFTING From carving your own jack-o’-lanterns to designing your own Halloween costumes to adorning your house and yard with homemade decorations, Halloween

presents the perfect opportunity to get creative with crafts. Let little ones design their own jacko’-lanterns and help you scoop out the pumpkin, but leave the actual carving to an adult. Encourage your kids to go the do-it-yourself route this year. Not only are homemade costumes so much more unique than storebought costumes but they also can be inexpensive to create and are a lot more satisfying to show off to friends.
