Lawrence High sets stage for variety acts By Peter Hancock

Dancers, singers, garage bands and even someone juggling while riding a unicycle all will be part of the eighth annual Lawrence High School Talent Show being staged this week. The show runs from 7 p.m.

to 9 p.m. Tuesday in the LHS auditorium, 1901 Louisiana. Proceeds benefit two programs at the school: a fund that helps students from lower-income families buy supplies for classes they might not otherwise be able to take; and a scholarship program for seniors who work in alco-

hol- and drug-prevention programs. The local office of Thrivent Financial for Lutherans will match up to $200 of the money raised at the show, organizers said. “This started out of wanting to give all students the chance to perform a talent,” said Diane Ash, a prevention specialist at

the school and one of the talent show organizers. “We have a lot of students who are not in choir or in band but are musically talented. Then there are kids who have other skills, like they ride a unicycle and juggle at the same time. And, you

The Lawrence school board will discuss plans for a new highway interchange near Langston Hughes School when it meets at 8 p.m. today. The Kansas Department of Transportation is planning to build a new interchange connecting Kansas Highway 10 and Bob Billings Parkway. That project, estimated to cost $17 million, is being funded through the state’s T-Works program, a 10-year transportation program approved by the Kansas Legislature in 2010. The city of Lawrence is also planning to extend Bob Billings Parkway west to connect with the new interchange. City officials say plans are also taking shape for a new housing development on property owned by Alvamar Inc., near the new interchange. That property lies between the school district

Kansans head east to offer assistance on Hurricane Sandy By Meagan Thomas

As residents along the East Coast make their way inland to safer areas before Hurricane Sandy strikes this week, some Kansas residents are heading east to assist with preparations for the storm, which has the potential to be one of the most dangerous ever recorded.

that in southwest Kansas, depth to water is nearly two times greater in many areas. The atlas also shows that much of southwest Kansas had a saturated thickness of more than 300 feet in about 1940. While some areas in counties along the southern Kansas border still have a higher saturated thickness, others, including areas of Finney, Grant and Haskell counties, have seen more than 150-foot decreases since 1940. The recent drought hasn’t helped. “Last year was one of the largest rates of groundwater decline that we saw across the aquifer,” Wilson said. “Because it hasn’t rained at all, that affects the pumping rates and that affects the groundwater levels.”

Man School teaches responsibility velopment, youth empowerment and volunteerism. The curriculum would revolve around a series of topic-specific modules ranging from personal goal-setting to professional development to management of personal finances. The youths also would participate in extracurricular activities, such as sports or volunteering. Man School was offered as a pilot program in June 2011 at Highland Park High School. Nine Topeka youths participated in the session. Tatum said after some tweaking to the curriculum to “make the program more receptive to different audiences,” Man School was offered last spring at the Boys and Girls Club of Topeka and this summer at Highland Park High School.

Volunteer’s help invaluable to library Lawrence woman fills many roles for foundation By Micki Chestnut

Editor’s note: This is one in a series of occasional stories about volunteers in our community. Kathleen Morgan, executive director of the Lawrence Public Library Foundation, has originated a verb you won’t find in the dictionary or any of the other tomes stacked on the Lawrence Public Library’s long shelves. “To ‘Jean Ann’ is to work on a job until it’s perfect,” Morgan said, laughing, as she referred to the laudable work done by venerated foundation volunteer Jean Ann Oden. “She has the most incredible work ethic, and we are the happy beneficiaries.” When Oden and her family moved to Lawrence from Minnesota in 2004, she didn’t know a soul in her new community. So she decided to find a place where she could volunteer in order to connect with Lawrence residents, make friends and further develop her professional skills in administration and graphic design. “I had experience working with children and had office skills, so I started thinking of who that would benefit the most. I thought of the library,” Oden said. Oden now provides graphic design services for the library, helps with special events, maintains the foundation’s database and is willing to do just about anything else that needs doing, whether it’s hauling boxes of children’s books to her home so she can paste in “Dr. Bob Book” bookplates or hiking around downtown to distribute promotional fliers for upcoming library events. By serving as an unpaid, unofficial staff person for the library, Oden benefits the entire community, Morgan said. That’s why Morgan nominated Oden for the

If you think North Lawrence’s retail and entertainment scene is largely the venerable Johnny’s Tavern and that bird-watching supply store near North Ninth and Walnut streets (at least it seems to advertise itself as some sort of bird club), then you haven’t been to the area’s burgeoning antiques district. The area near North Seventh and Locust streets has been gaining a reputation as an antiques hot spot for a while. Well, it now has a new entrant onto the scene. A longtime interior designer has opened Tooter and Tillaye’s at 644 Locust St. The store has everything from antique furniture to silverware, jewelry, chimes, old books and other curios. “We try to have a lot of different and unique things,” owner Dana Niemack said. That goes for the store

name, too. The store is named after Niemack’s great-grandmother Tillaye and grandmother Tooter. Yes, Tooter was a nickname. “From the age of 3, her siblings just always called her Tooter,” Niemack said. (I didn’t investigate any further. I’m just trying to get my head around a grandma Tooter. It’s hard. I wonder if the smells of your grandma’s kitchen would be some of the best memories of your childhood.) Niemack has spent about 25 years as a professional interior designer. For most of those years she was based in Osage County and worked a lot in the Topeka market. She said her design style always has been about combining the old with the new, so opening an antiques shop made sense. Locating in North Lawrence also made some sense. The area near North Seventh and Locust now has four antiques shops — the former downtown store My Father’s Daughter, Amy’s Attic, and LSM Interiors and Antiques also are located at the corner. The shops also are unique in that they mainly are open only on Fridays and Saturdays. In addition, Eagle’s Rest Natural Home store also is at the corner. It is not an antiques shop (it also is open more regular business hours) but rather is the group that took over the former Blue Heron furniture store business. Lawrence in general has

Ft. Leavenworth soldiers hit virtual battlefields Volunteer FORT LEAVENWORTH (AP) — Soldiers at Fort Leavenworth demonstrated a new virtual training system aimed at preparing soldiers for combat without the expense and danger of live training. The Dismounted Soldier Training System uses helmet-mounted screens that show soldiers what they could face on combat patrols. Noises such as gunfire are delivered through speakers in the helmet. The Army says the system also gives soldiers a 360-degree view of the battlefield and the location of other soldiers, letting them train to perform their tasks in a safe environment. During the exercises, they carry the weapons they would use in combat. The training allows a squad of nine soldiers to communicate and work together with others just as they might on the battlefield. Soldiers demonstrated the new system Thurs-


quite a few antiques places now. Niemack said consumers are turning to antiques again and often are finding that the quality vs. value equation makes older furniture more affordable than some of the newer stuff. “I think antiques are back on the upswing,” Niemack said. “People appreciate the quality. There is more character to them, and people are tired of the big box store stuff.” ! The buildings near North Seventh and Locust streets kind of have a mini-downtown Lawrence feel to them. My understanding is local businessman Jon Davis is largely responsible for rehabilitating the area. Davis is also a partner in the group that wants to revamp the area around Johnny’s Tavern and the Kansas River levee. If you remember, that group has proposed creating a boardwalk along the levee, rebuilding a new Johnny’s and having several shops along the boardwalk, with a dream scenario of a movie theater locating in the development as well. The developers said from the beginning the project would take a while to come together, but lately there hasn’t been much sign of activity. Well, I can report that the project isn’t dead. I haven’t received any specific updates from the developers recently, but they have exercised a contract option with the city that indicates the group is still plowing ahead with the plans.

The Army says the system also gives soldiers a 360-degree view of the battlefield and the location of other soldiers, letting them train to perform their tasks in a safe environment. During the exercises, they carry the weapons they would use in combat. day at Fort Leavenworth, showing how the military has taken simulation to a new level. About 20 such systems are in use, The Kansas City Star reported. While the military has used video game technology for years to simulate war and has used simulations for decades to train pilots, until now there was little virtual training that could truly help a soldier on foot. “You don’t want to fly on a commercial airliner where your pilot hasn’t logged thousands of hours on a flight simulator,” said Dan Miller, a virtual training expert and military analyst. Miller said the virtual system is intended to sharpen skills and help

maximize live training. Miller is also the project leader for TRADOC Capability Manager Virtual, the Fort Leavenworthbased military organization that plans, manages and integrates Army virtual simulations. The system is portable and can be set up and used in four hours and allows the military to train large formations in small places. The program has limitations, however. The program recognizes some gestures, but it doesn’t pick up all the details that can be important on the battlefield, such as holding up two fingers to suggest two enemies are present. The program won’t replace the physical inten-

Back in 2008, the group signed a purchase agreement with the city to obtain a bit of vacant land adjacent to the river levee. The contract, however, came with a long due diligence period before the group actually had to close on the deal. Recently, the group notified the city that it does indeed want to exercise another 12-month extension to continue due diligence on the project. The new extension gives the group until October of 2013 to decide whether to pull the trigger on the deal. This next year may be critical in determining whether the river redevelopment project has any legs to it. I believe this most recent extension marks the last extension available to the group under the current purchase contract. So, a decision time may be nearing. What I have long heard from the development group is that the project won’t be built on speculation. In other words, the economy needs to improve enough that some significant retailers are ready to sign leases for the project.

sewage straight to the ground, which had left pools that children were congregating around. In total, the city issued 13 search warrants as part of an investigation of environmental and property maintenance code violations. The city action made it so that no one could live at the property, but it left a question about what was to become of the mess. Currently, most of the trailers continue to sit at the park in a bad state of disrepair. Well, city officials recently have confirmed that talks are under way by a private developer to purchase the park and convert the area into single-family homes. Brian Jimenez, the codes enforcement manager with the city, said local contractor Mark Bowden is in discussions with the California owner of the park. I believe the situation is still fluid, so there is no guarantee of a deal. City officials, though, have told me they want to give the deal a chance to go through before they start ordering a massive cleanup of the property. Such a cleanup likely will be expensive. The city can always try to recoup those expenses by placing a special assessment on the property tax bill of the real estate, but that doesn’t always result in a quick recouping of funds.

! There may be one redevelopment that folks in North Lawrence are hoping for even more than the riverfront idea. That would be the redevelopment of the troubled mobile home park at 827 Walnut St. If you remember, the city went into the trailer park and basically shut the park down after finding gross violations of the city’s code. When I say gross, I mean gross on a couple of levels. The city found some trailer units discharging

sity of live training. But it helps soldiers practice and gain experience before going out to live training missions. The virtual system can also be less expensive than live training. The new system is about $470,000, whereas a large live exercise costs millions of dollars for two to three days. Mike Lundy, deputy commanding general of the Combined Arms Center Training at Fort Leavenworth, said that with the virtual system, obstacles that could injure soldiers or damage equipment can be part of a regular training regimen without fear of injury. Lundy said the system also makes it easy to move through different conditions, from day to night, rain to sunlight, confronting a lethal enemy or a noncombatant. “The things we learn the most are from the mistakes we made,” he said. “It allows those mistakes, those experiences to be built up.”


professional development,” she said. “The people are very friendly and make you feel like a co-worker. That has increased how much I volunteer.” Despite working and raising four children and two stepchildren, Oden has always carved out time to volunteer. “It’s in my nature,” she said. “There are always things that need to be done and people who need to be helped. When someone needs me, I want to be there for them. It’s in my bones; it’s an instinct.”

Oden has not only made a big impression on the staff at the library by her level of commitment to volunteering, she’s made one on her family, as well. Her children are following in her footsteps, volunteering with organizations such as Habitat for Humanity, the Lawrence Humane Society and the library. “You hope your children learn from your example, that they can work and also volunteer,” Oden said. “Volunteering is another thing that gives you a healthy balance to life.” — Micki Chestnut is associate director of the United Way Roger Hill Volunteer Center.

much yet, especially as gasoline prices have dropped a bit. What they do know is that the lease contract for the golf carts is about $13,000 more per year than the gasoline carts were. The city’s old lease rate was based on prices from eight years ago, and no matter what Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke says, there has been inflation. (The Fed always ignores golf cart inflation. It’s a Wall Street conspiracy.) So, city commissioners last week approved a $1 increase in golf cart rates. They’re now $6 for nine holes and $11 for 18 holes on the weekday, and $12 for nine and $17 for 18 holes on the weekend. That’s OK as long as the price includes the Energizer Bunny following us around with spare batteries for the cart. That will be a necessity when my buddy and I go golfing. He gets his money’s worth on a golf course. — City reporter Chad Lawhorn can be reached at 8326362. Follow him at clawhorn_ljw. Look for his entire Town Talk blog on daily, Monday through Friday.

Are members of the LAW ENFORCEMENT

According to spokeswoman Kathy Toelkes, State Board of Education members receive a salary of $88.66 per day for days they spend conducting board business or acting in their capacity as board members. In addition to salary, board members are entitled to a per diem of $123. The amounts for salary and per diem are the same as for legislators and are set by the Legislature. The per diem is available to board members when they attend in-state meetings where they have to travel more than 100 miles one way. If the travel distance is under 100 miles one way, members are eligible only for salary and mileage. The exception is for days when the State Board of Education is in session. On those days, board members can receive salary, per diem and mileage, regardless of the travel distance to the meeting. When attending outof-state meetings, board members are reimbursed for their actual expenses. They also receive salary for the actual day of the meeting (no salary for travel days). Registrations for meetings or conferences are also reimbursed. All of the salary and travel expenses incurred by members, including registrations, must be approved by the full board before being paid or reimbursed. The exception is State Board of Education meetings, which do not need board approval for the payment of salary, per diem or mileage. Toelkes added that the board has an allocated budget for travel, and members’ combined travel expenses need to stay within that allocated amount.

Dangerous superstorm threatens eastern U.S. By Allen G. Breed and Jennifer Peltz Associated Press

NEW YORK — From Washington to Boston, big cities and small towns Sunday buttoned up against the onslaught of a superstorm that could endanger 50 million people in the most heavily populated corridor in the nation, with forecasters warning that the New York area could get the worst of it — an 11-foot wall of water. “The time for preparing and talking is about over,” Federal Emergency Management Administrator Craig Fugate said as Hurricane Sandy made its way up the Atlantic on a collision course with two other weather systems that could turn it into one of the most fearsome storms on record in the U.S. “People need to be acting now.” Forecasters said the hurricane could blow ashore tonight or early Tuesday along the New Jersey coast, then cut across into Pennsylvania and travel up through New York State on Wednesday.

Cancellations and evacuations Airlines canceled more than 7,200 flights and Amtrak began suspending train service across the Northeast. New York, Philadelphia, Washington and Baltimore moved to shut down their subways, buses and trains and said schools would be closed today. Boston also called off school. And all nonessential government offices closed in the nation’s capital. As rain from the leading edges of the monster hurricane began to fall over the Northeast, hundreds of thousands of people from Maryland to Connecticut were ordered to evacuate low-lying coastal areas, including 375,000 in lower Manhattan and other parts of New York City, 50,000 in Delaware and 30,000 in Atlantic City, N.J., where the city’s 12 casinos were forced to shut down for only the fourth time ever. “We were told to get the heck out. I was going to stay, but it’s better to be safe than sorry,” said Hugh Phillips, who was one of the first in line when a Red Cross shelter in Lewes, Del., opened at noon. “I think this one’s going to do us in,” said Mark Palazzolo, who boarded up his bait-and-tackle shop in Point Pleasant Beach, N.J., with the same wood he used in past storms, crossing out the names of Hurricanes Isaac and Irene and spray-painting “Sandy” next to them. “I got a call from a friend of mine from Florida last night who said, ‘Mark, get out! If it’s not the storm, it’ll be the aftermath. People are going to be fighting in the streets over gasoline and food.’”

Hurricane Sandy, upgraded again Saturday just hours after forecasters said it had weakened to a tropical storm and was expected to make landfall late tonight or early Tuesday, then hit a wintry storm as it moves inland, creating a hybrid monster storm.

BRIEFLY Earthquake strikes off Canadian coast VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA — A magnitude 7.7 earthquake struck off the west coast of Canada, but there were no reports of major damage. Residents in parts of British Columbia were evacuated, but the province appeared to escape the biggest quake in Canada since 1949 largely unscathed. The U.S. Geological Survey said the powerful temblor hit the Queen Charlotte Islands just after 8 p.m. local time Saturday at a depth of about 3 miles and was centered 96 miles south of Masset, British Columbia. It was felt across a wide area in British Columbia, both on its Pacific islands and on the mainland. The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center lifted its tsunami advisory for Hawaii on Sunday morning just before 4 a.m. local time, three hours after downgrading from a warning and less than six hours after the waves first hit the islands. Meanwhile, the National Weather Service canceled tsunami advisories for Canada, Alaska, Washington, Oregon and California.

Space freighter back on Earth after trip CAPE CANAVERAL, FLA. — An unmanned Dragon freighter carrying a stash of precious medical samples from the International Space Station parachuted into the Pacific Ocean on Sunday, completing the first official shipment under a billion-dollar contract with NASA. The California-based SpaceX company successfully guided the Dragon down from orbit to a splashdown a few hundred miles off the Baja California coast. “This historic mission signifies the restoration of America’s ability to deliver and return critical space station cargo,” Elon Musk, the billionaire founder and head of SpaceX, said in a statement. NASA Administrator Charles Bolden praised the “American ingenuity” that made the endeavor possible. Several hours earlier, astronauts aboard the International Space Station used a giant robot arm to release the commercial cargo ship 255 miles up. SpaceX provided updates of the journey back to Earth via Twitter.

Rocker arrested as part of Savile case LONDON — Police investigating child sex abuse allegations against the late BBC television host Jimmy Savile arrested former glam rock star and convicted sex offender Gary Glitter on Sunday, British media reported, raising further questions about whether Savile was at the center of a broader pedophile ring. Police would not directly identify the suspect arrested Sunday, but media including the Gadd BBC and Press Association reported he was the 68-year-old Glitter. The musician, whose real name is Paul Gadd, made it big with the crowd-pleasing hit “Rock & Roll (Part 2),” a mostly instrumental anthem that has been a staple at American sporting events, thanks to its catchy “hey” chorus. But he fell into disgrace after being convicted on child abuse charges in Vietnam. Sunday’s arrest was the first in a widening scandal over Savile’s alleged sex crimes, which started garnering attention earlier this month when a television documentary showed several women claiming that Savile abused them when they were teenagers. Hundreds of potential victims have since come forward to report similar claims to police against Savile, a muchloved children’s TV presenter and disc jockey who died at the age of 84 last year.

Insurers nervous over prospect of Romney victory By Ricardo Alonso-Zaldivar Associated Press

WASHINGTON — You’d think health insurance CEOs would be chilling the bubbly with Republican Mitt Romney’s improved election prospects, but instead they’re in a quandary. Although the industry hates parts of President Barack Obama’s health care law, major outfits such as UnitedHealth Group and Blue Cross Blue Shield also stand to rake in billions of dollars from new customers who’ll get health insurance under the law. The companies already have invested tens of millions to carry it out. Were Romney elected, insurers would be in for months of uncertainty as his administration gets used to Washington and tries to make good on his promise to repeal Obama’s law. Simultaneously, federal and state bureaucrats and the health care industry would face a rush of legal deadlines for putting

into place the major pieces of what Republicans deride as “Obamacare.” Would they follow the law on the books or the one in the works? What would federal courts tell them to do? The answers probably would hinge on an always unwieldy Congress. Things could get grim for the industry if Republicans succeed in repealing the Affordable Care Act’s subsidies and mandates but leave standing its requirement that insurers cover people with health problems. If that’s the outcome, the industry fears people literally could get health insurance on the way to the emergency room, and that would drive up premiums. “There are a lot of dollars and a lot of staff time that’s been put into place to make this thing operational,” G. William Hoagland, until recently a Cigna vice president, said of the health care law. Insurers “are not going to be out there saying, ‘Re-

There are a lot of dollars and a lot of staff time that’s been put into place to make this thing operational.” — G. William Hoagland, until recently a Cigna vice president, on the Affordable Care Act peal, repeal, repeal,’” said Hoagland, who oversaw public policy at the health insurance company. “They will probably try to find the particular provisions that cause them heartburn but not throw the baby out with the bath water.” The Romney campaign isn’t laying out specifics on how the candidate would carry out his repeal promise, other than to say the push would begin on his first day in office. Romney has hinted that he wants to help people with medical conditions but doesn’t say what parts of the health care law he’d keep. Likewise, America’s Health Insurance Plans, the major industry trade

group, isn’t talking about what its members are telling the Romney campaign, though informal discussions are under way through intermediaries. Insurers like Romney’s plan to privatize Medicare, and some point out that it looks a lot like Obama’s approach to covering the uninsured. Robert Laszewski, an industry consultant and blogger, said the tension is becoming unbearable. “I spend a lot of time in executive offices and board rooms, and they are good Republicans who would like to see Romney win,” Laszewski said. “But they are scared to death about what he’s going to do.”

There is no consensus among Republicans in Congress on how to replace Obama’s law, much less anything like a bipartisan middle ground on health care, a necessity if the House retains its GOP majority and the Senate remains in Democratic hands. In contrast, Obama’s law is starting to look more and more like a tangible business opportunity. In a little over a year, some 30 million uninsured people will start getting coverage through a mix of subsidized private insurance for middle-class households and expanded Medicaid for low-income people. Many of the new Medicaid recipients would get signed up in commercial managed care companies. A recent PricewaterhouseCoopers study estimated the new markets would be worth $50 billion to $60 billion in premiums in 2014, and as much as $230 billion annually within seven years.

Syria truce collapse shows limits of diplomacy By Zeina Karam Associated Press

BEIRUT — Syria’s air force fired missiles and dropped barrel bombs on rebel strongholds while opposition fighters attacked regime positions Sunday, flouting a U.N.backed cease-fire that was supposed to quiet fighting over a long holiday weekend but never took hold. The failure to push through a truce so limited in its ambitions — just four days — has been a sobering reflection of the international community’s inability to ease 19 months of bloodshed in Syria. It also suggests that the stalemated civil war will drag on, threatening to draw in Syria’s neighbors in this highly combustible region such as Turkey, Lebanon and Jordan. “This conflict has now taken a dynamic of its own which should be worrying to everyone,” said


Salman Shaikh, director of the Brookings Doha Center think tank. The U.N. tried to broker a halt to fighting over the four-day Eid al-Adha Muslim feast that began on Friday, one of the holiest times of the Islamic calendar. But the truce was violated almost immediately after it was supposed to take effect, the same fate other ceasefires in Syria have met. Activists said at least 110 people were killed Sunday, a toll similar to previous daily casualty tolls. They include 16 who died in an airstrike on the village of al-Barra in northern Syria’s mountainous Jabal al-Zawiya region. The Observatory also reported a car bomb that exploded in a residential area in the Damascus neighborhood of Barzeh and wounded 15 people, but the target was not immediately clear. Though Syria’s death toll has topped 35,000, the

bloodiest and most protracted crisis of the Arab Spring, the West has been wary of intervening. There is concern about sparking a wider conflagration because Syria borders Israel and is allied with Iran and the powerful Lebanese militant group Hezbollah. Many in Lebanon blame Syria and Hezbollah for the Oct. 19 car bomb that killed the country’s intelligence chief. The assassination stirred up deadly sectarian tensions in Lebanon, where Sunnis and Shiites are deeply divided over the Syrian civil war, raising the specter of renewed sectarian fighting. Lebanon’s two largest political coalitions have lined up on opposite sides of Syria’s civil war. Hezbollah and its partners who dominate the government have stood by Assad’s regime, while the Sunni-led opposition backs the rebels seeking to topple the Syrian government.

WASHINGTON — Three years ago, the Supreme Court warned there could be constitutional problems with a landmark civil rights law that has opened voting booths to millions of African-Americans. Now, opponents of a key part of the Voting Rights Act are asking the high court to finish off that provision. The basic question is whether state and local governments that once boasted of their racial discrimination still can be forced in the 21st century to get federal permission before making changes in the way they hold elections. Some of the governments covered — most of them are in the South — argue they have turned away from racial discrimination over the years. But Congress and lower courts that have looked at recent challenges to the law concluded that a history of discrimination and more recent efforts to harm minority voters justify continuing federal

oversight. The Supreme Court could say as early as today whether it will consider ending the Voting Rights Act’s advance approval requirement that has been held up as a crown jewel of the civil rights era. The justices sidestepped this very issue in a case from Texas in 2009. In an opinion joined by eight justices, Chief Justice John Roberts wrote then that the issue of advance approval “is a difficult constitutional question we do not answer today.” Since then, Congress has not addressed potential problems identified by the court. Meanwhile, the law’s opponents sensed its vulnerability and filed several new lawsuits. The advance approval, or preclearance requirement, was adopted in the Voting Rights Act in 1965 to give federal officials a potent tool to defeat persistent efforts to keep blacks from voting. The provision was a huge success, and Congress periodically has renewed it over the years. The most recent occasion was in 2006, when a

Republican-led Congress overwhelmingly approved and President George W. Bush signed a 25-year extension. The requirement currently applies to the states of Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, South Carolina, Texas and Virginia. It also covers certain counties in California, Florida, New York, North Carolina and South Dakota, and some local jurisdictions in Michigan and New Hampshire. Coverage has been triggered by past discrimination not only against blacks, but also against American Indians, AsianAmericans, Alaskan Natives and Hispanics. Before these locations can change their voting rules, they must get approval either from the U.S. Justice Department’s civil rights division or from the federal district court in Washington that the new rules won’t discriminate. Congress compiled a 15,000-page record and documented hundreds of instances of apparent voting discrimination in the states covered by the law dating to 1982, the last time it had been extended.

DAN ROLLMAN, CO-FOUNDER OF A MOVEMENT CALLED THE SABBATH MANIFESTO, walks his bicycle on Canal Street in New York on Tuesday. The Manifesto is a call to unplug one day a week to find solitude or to simply take a day of rest with family and friends.

Searching for true solitude in a wired world By Martha Irvine Associated Press

CHICAGO — When was the last time you were alone, and unwired? Really, truly by yourself. Just you and your thoughts — no cellphone, no tablet, no laptop. Many of us crave that kind of solitude, though in an increasingly wired world, it’s a rare commodity. We check texts and emails, and update our online status, at any hour — when we’re lying in bed or sitting at stop lights or on trains. Sometimes, we even do so when we’re on the toilet. We feel obligated, yes. But we’re also fascinated with this connectedness, constantly tinkering and checking in — an obsession that’s starting to get pushback from a small but growing legion of tech users who are feeling the need to unplug and get away. “What might have felt like an obligation at first has become an addiction. It’s almost as if we don’t know how to be alone, or we are afraid of what we’ll find when we are alone with ourselves,” said Camille Preston, a tech and communication consultant based in Cambridge, Mass. “It’s easier to keep doing, than it is to be in stillness.”

Movement of solitude-seekers One could argue that, in this economy, it’s wise to be constantly wired — to stay on top of things, to please the boss. Preston knows people who get up in the middle of the night to see if their boss has sent them an email. But she and others also see more hints of limitsetting going on, this movement of solitudeseekers with roots in the technology industry, ironically enough. “When I think about truly disconnecting, I look to my truly techy friends,” said Cathy Davidson, a Duke University profes-

What might have felt like an obligation at first has become an addiction. It’s almost as if we don’t know how to be alone, or we are afraid of what we’ll find when we are alone with ourselves.” — Camille Preston, a tech and communication consultant based in Cambridge, Mass. sor who co-directs the school’s PhD Lab in Digital Knowledge. Those friends, she said, take long, unwired vacations and set “away messages” telling people to write back after they return. “And they stick to it,” Davidson said, wishing she could do the same. “They’ve come up with a socially acceptable convention for their own absence from the world of technology and everybody recognizes it.”

A call to unplug One organization called Reboot has started the Sabbath Manifesto, a call to unplug one day a week to find solitude — or to simply take a day of rest with family and friends. Bigger corporations, some outside the tech industry, are starting to catch on to this type of limit-setting. To encourage worklife balance, Volkswagen shuts off mobile email in Germany 30 minutes after employees’ shifts end and turns it back on 30 minutes before their next shift starts. Google, Nike and the Huffington Post, among others, provide space for employees to take naps, or to meditate. The idea is that employees who take time to themselves to reenergize will be more productive. John Cacioppo, a University of Chicago psychologist, thinks there might just be something to that. He has spent much of his career tackling the topic of loneliness and isolation, which researchers have proven can affect humans adversely, all the way down to gene expression.

“Feeling ignored sparks feelings of loneliness,” said Cacioppo, director of the University of Chicago’s Center for Cognitive and Social Neuroscience. But getting away, he said — “that’s the opposite of being lonely.” It’s time that you take by choice, Cacioppo said. So while the cognitive effects are still being studied, he said it’s very likely that that type of solitude is good for the brain. Dan Rollman had little doubt of that when he and a few others from Reboot, a group of Jewish “thought leaders,” gathered in 2009. That’s when they created the Sabbath Manifesto, inspired by the traditional Jewish sabbath, but aimed at people from any background who are encouraged to unplug one day — any day — of the week. The idea came to Rollman when he found himself craving a simpler time, when stores closed on Sundays and life slowed down. “I knew I wanted a day of rest,” said Rollman, who is CEO of the company The Manifesto — described as “a creative project designed to slow down lives in an increasingly hectic world” — has 10 principles. They are suggestions ranging from “avoid technology” and “connect with loved ones” to “get outside,” ‘‘drink wine” and “find silence.” To help with this, the organization has created “The Undo List” — an email that arrives Friday afternoons “with ideas for conversation topics, readings, local outings and creative endeavors to ease the time away from technology and help make the day better.”

Penn State panel urges openness about sex abuse STATE COLLEGE, PA. — Survivors of child sexual abuse said Sunday night the problem cannot be combated unless people are willing to talk about it openly. At a two-hour panel discussion at Penn State University, two-time Olympic swimmer Margaret Hoelzer, state Rep. Louise Williams Bishop (DPhiladelphia) and Christopher Anderson, executive director of MaleSurvivor, shared personal stories of being abused as children with an audience of about 150 people. It was the opening session of “Child Sexual Abuse Conference: Traumatic Impact, Prevention and Intervention,” a three-day gathering that hopes to shed more light on a problem that gained national attention after former Penn

State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky was arrested on child sex abuse charges last November. The panelists said more resources and treatment for victims and survivors will become available if the issue gains more attention and awareness. Williams Bishop said

the Sandusky scandal was just a conversation starter because the issue has been going on for years. Sandusky, 68, was sentenced to at least 30 years in prison earlier this month after being convicted on dozens of criminal counts covering abuse allegations both on and off campus.

Lawrence Public Library November 2012 events Skillbuilders will complete the Fall sessions in November with programs that will assist you during the holiday season. You need not have attended previous programs in this series to participate. Skillbuilders is a 12-week series of programs for anyone experiencing significant life changes. Those who have lost a loved one by death or who are making adjustments to illness or who are adapting to being a single person, often find that grief is not the only thing that must be faced. Common daily occurrences take on a different meaning and cause unexpected anxiety. Why is it so hard to make decisions that seemed easy before the changes? In Skillbuilders, widows, widowers, caregivers and those adapting to major changes in their life will find information that will assist in making decisions concerning legal and financial issues as well as personal activities such as adapting to special occasions and other emotional concerns.. The programs are led by local professionals but it is the discussion of the participants that also provides confidence to each other. Registration is not required and all programs are free. Transportation is available by calling the Douglas County Senior Services, 785-865-6925. Skillbuilders meets 10:00-11:45am each Thursday in the Gallery of the Lawrence Public Library, 707 Vermont St, Lawrence, Kansas. November programs will be: November 1 Personal Safety & Home Security, led by Sgt.Gary Squires of the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office. This program takes on a new importance due to recent burglaries in the Lawrence area. He will address how to keep your home and yourself confident and secure. November 8 Managing Your Money, led by Barbara Braa, trust office at Corner Bank. In a constantly changing financial landscape, she will give you information that will help you understand the changes and how they may affect you. November 15 Handling the Holidays, led by Paul Reed, chaplain with Visiting Nurses Association. Holidays are often the most difficult time for those who have lost a loved one or had to make major life changes. Suggestions on how to cope with new traditions, memories and other holiday events will be given. Skillbuilders will return in the spring of 2013.

Good partnership An upgraded Douglas County Senior Services could be the perfect vehicle for attracting seniors to the community.


he new role being considered for Douglas County Senior Services could make that agency an even more important player in attracting retirees to Lawrence and providing the services they want once they get here. Earlier this year, a city-county task force charged with studying how to attract more retirees to Lawrence and Douglas County recommended the addition of a new staff position to spearhead those efforts. Rather than create a new city or county staff position, it makes perfect sense to fold this task into an existing agency already focused on serving the community’s senior population. The DCSS board already has approved changes to its bylaws to accommodate the expanded role. Those changes authorize the city and county to make direct appointments to the board, which currently is self-appointed. That will make the agency more accountable to local government and promote the coordination of services and programs for local seniors. The expanded role for DCSS also will require some expanded funding, and the board has asked the city and county to split the cost of hiring a new executive director and perhaps other staff that will be needed to allow the agency to take on a more active and professional role in the community. Some physical upgrades to the Lawrence Senior Center at Eighth and Vermont streets also are in order. Lawrence city commissioners will soon consider a cooperation agreement formalizing the new goals and relationship with DCSS. County commissioners likely will consider the same agreement early next month. DCSS should be the community’s “goto” agency for senior services and activities. The agency does a laudable job of providing transportation, meals and other services, but the expanded role being envisioned would help broaden the agency’s offerings and make it an even more attractive and active part of the community. It’s a good idea that is worthy of some local government investment.

Iowa drawing electoral attention DES MOINES — In every presidential election season, Iowa is a political stage set. With its sprawling farms, literate voters, unforgettable fried pork tenderloin sandwiches, wild-eyed liberals and devout religious conservatives, the state and its caucuses provide a picturesque setting for candidates scrambling for a moment of attention and hoping to be transformed by prairie dust from improbable to inevitable. Then everyone zips out of here as fast as possible and promptly forgets about the state for another four years. Not this time. Iowa has emerged as one of about 10 swing states in the general election, and this time the nominees are returning — not once, but often — for an encore turn on the Iowa stage. This fall, the farmers working late at harvest time aren’t the only Iowans whose lights are illuminating the wide night skies here. The campaign workers are working late, too.

Unlikely political prize Seldom has so much political activity been invested by so many political activists for what would seem to be so little political payoff. But suddenly Iowa’s six little electoral votes are the electoral version of blue ribbons at the state fair. They’re big prizes. The election is that close — and was long before the first presidential debate catapulted former Gov. Mitt Romney into a virtual tie with President Barack Obama. “The debates affect donors and mobilize activists here,” says Barbara Trish, a political scientist at Grinnell College, some 60 miles east of Des Moines. “But I bet on Election Day the state will still be uncertain. We won’t know who won Iowa until late that night.” Which is why this month Mr. Romney visited teeny Van Meter (population 1,073), best known as the home of fireballing pitcher Bob Feller, and Mr. Obama paused in Mount Ver-

Seldom has so much political activity been invested by so many political activists for what would seem to be so little political payoff.” non (population 4,506), where ordinarily the biggest thing in town in October is the chili cook-off. Iowa isn’t used to causing late-night jitters for presidential campaigns. Early 20th-century Sen. Jonathan Dolliver once proclaimed with confidence that “Iowa will go Democratic when Hell goes Methodist.” In fact, until recently, Republicans ruled with little challenge in presidential elections, even after Elmer Carlson shoved a mule into the elevator of Chicago’s Palmer Hotel at the 1952 Democratic National Convention. Dwight Eisenhower took 64 percent of the Iowa vote that year.

A classic swing state Now, Iowa is a classic swing state, befitting a territory that was one of the first in the nation to practice crop rotation. Iowa sends one senator of each party to Washington. The House delegation consists of three Democrats and two Republicans (one seat was lost after the 2010 Census). One chamber of the state legislature is controlled by Democrats, the other by Republicans — and the state Senate has 25 Democrats and 24 Republicans. Retired Iowa state historian Dorothy Schwieder titled her 1996 book “Iowa: The Middle Land” and sketched

Iowa as conservative in politics but liberal in social outlook — and always choosing a middle ground. “Iowa, unlike Midwestern states to the east, has not become predominantly industrial, and unlike Midwestern states to the west, has not remained mostly agricultural,” she wrote. “Rather, in politics, in economics, in social values and social actions, Iowa can still be defined as the middle land.”

Middle ground The middle ground is a recurrent theme in this state, whose 55,869 square miles of land provide fully a quarter of the top-grade agricultural land in the country. Indeed, the 1938 WPA Guide to Iowa, noting “the rich land, remarkably uniform diffusion of the population, traditions of culture and tolerance,” spoke of a “successful experiment in living” that has been achieved “in this fertile middle ground between the congested districts of the East and the more sparsely settled West.” Social movements have moved across Iowa like the glaciers that shaped it — recurrent farm revolts, the Social Gospel, Prohibition, modern liberalism, and then a surging religious conservatism that has surpassed mainline Protestantism in its political if not its social influence. The result is the unpredictability in Iowa politics that we are seeing this autumn. In 1962, Harold Hughes, with a history of alcoholism, was elected governor on a platform of liquor by the drink. He was only the second Democratic governor in a quarter-century. In three terms he brought what James Larew in his history of the Iowa Democratic Party described as “’Great Society’ attitudes toward taxes and social services.” Later, Republican Terry Branstad served four consecutive terms as governor and then returned to office last year

for a fifth after a dozen years of Democratic rule. Though many pioneers settled here, Iowa was marked by great waves of migration, first by Native Americans who roamed south and west from the Great Lakes, and then by whites — Irish, Scots, Swedes, Germans and Dutch, even Danes — who traveled east across prairie grass that often was higher than the wheels of the wagons carrying their provisions. Immigration peaked in the 1890s, but a 21st-century wave is breaking over Iowa, drawn to the state by its reputation for civility, its celebration of education and its small industries, with the new Iowans more likely to settle in small cities than in rural crossroads. There are, to be sure, migrant workers here, though Iowa today is shaped more by permanent settlers employed in meat-packing.

A unique political culture The state boasts a unique political character, where voters meet candidates easily and casually but study their positions slowly and seriously. Its political culture is grounded in the land — steak frys and hog-judging contests, debates about prize roosters, pictures in front of the annual butter cow — and in the personal ties that flourish in a small state with a rural culture. This year the campaign has gone digital, with both campaigns mounting social media efforts. The other day Democratic Sen. Tom Harkin sent a mass email urging Obama supporters to back the president in early voting, which began Sept. 27. Some went to people who had already voted. Four years from now those sorts of snafus won’t happen. But four years from now a genuine general election campaign might not happen here either. Iowans are making hay now (and baling wheat straw) — tons of it, and some of it is political. — David M. Shribman is executive editor of the Pittsburgh PostGazette.






From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for Oct. 29, 1912: YEARS “A great politiAGO cal wave is surgIN 1912 ing over Douglas County this week and will be until the opening of the polls next Tuesday morning. All parties and factions, Democrats, Republicans, Progressives and Suffragettes and all are winding up their fight for the majority of the votes on November 5.”

Wind support To the editor: Thank you for the Sept. 25 editorial in the Journal-World that stated, “the wind energy tax credit is important to Kansas, and it deserves the support of our elected representatives.” You also stated that Siemens announced that because of the uncertain federal energy policy and tax credits, which will expire Dec. 31, 2012. Siemens would eliminate 256 workers at the Hutchinson plant, more than 60 percent of its workforce. At the congressional debate at the Dole Institute on Oct. 4, 2012, U.S. Rep. Lynn Jenkins said that the German company Siemens is big enough to keep the plant open. She also said that the federal government should not choose which companies to subsidize. Yet, she voted for HR 6213 (J-W, Sept. 15, 2012) to “end U.S. loan guarantees to firms developing clean energy while freeing up $34 billion for nuclear energy and fossil fuels.” Jenkins’ second biggest contributor was listed as oil and gas

according to the Center for Responsible Politics (J-W, Sept. 27). It appears that she favors federal subsidies for those contributing to her campaign and does not care about keeping jobs in companies that involve wind power. As a registered Republican, I disagree with her view and feel she should follow Gov. Brownback and Sens. Jerry Moran and Pat Roberts in supporting wind energy. Dave Kyner, Lawrence

Silly idea To the editor: The state Democrats’ proposed “Buy American” law is a classic example of what Thomas Sowell describes as “stage one thinking.” At first blush, it sounds like good idea, but when one thinks beyond the feel-good, it is, in fact, a very silly idea. First, the cap on 25 percent, sounds reasonable when no dollar amount is discussed but begins to sound quite the opposite when spoken of in terms of real dollars. Would you be willing to pay $125 for something equiva-

lent that costs $100 elsewhere? Of course not. Now consider purchases in the millions of dollars: $2.5 million more on a $10 million purchase? How warm and squishy do you feel now? That $2.5 million could be used to support schools or roadways instead. Better yet, it’s money that taxpayers could simply keep in their pockets and spend as they see fit. Second, by paying more just because it’s “made in America” the state is supporting companies with inefficient business models. Through protectionism, the state is actually hobbling American business by not requiring them to strive toward more competitive practices. In the long term, this hurts their ability to compete for all business, foreign and domestic. Competition improves ALL players. Protectionism hurts everyone. This proposal illuminates the stark differences between “progressive” and conservative ideology: Progressives think that the economy grows best from the top down, when government makes the rules; conservatives believe it grows from the

middle out, when government King Jesus in His Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5-7). gets out of the way. For those who chose not to reJon Jambor, pent, the results are eternal and Lawrence disastrous. Jesus says in Luke 13:1-5, when He heard about those killed by Pilate or when To the editor: the Tower of Siloam collapsed, “Repent” is such a simple word that we will likewise perish if but seems to be losing its mean- we don’t repent.

Tom Keegan

Bring back ’bone Original thinkers, such as first-year Kansas University football coach Charlie Weis, don’t accept “nobody else does it” as the equivalent of “it can’t be done.” For example, no Big 12 football team goes two consecutive quarters without throwing a pass. It simply isn’t done, except that Weis did it Saturday and almost came away with KU’s first victory against Texas since 1938. In keeping with that thinking, I have an absolutely outrageous suggestion for Weis to implement this week in preparation for a trip to Waco to face a Baylor team favored by two touchdowns and a field goal, a Bears offense ranked third in the nation with an average of 569.4 yards and a national-worst defense with a 553.7-yard average. My outrageous idea would shorten the game by keeping the clock moving and make an already confused Bears defense trip all over itself. Open your mind. Don’t just let your head explode with fury over the absurdity of the concept and listen to why it’s worth considering. Bring back the ’bone, Charlie. That’s right: In one week, install the wishbone, drill your players on it and unleash a speedy running game on a Baylor defense that won’t know what just hit it. This, of course, makes me an idiot. Moron. Fool. Double-chinned dunce. Fat fraud. Loser. Imbecile. Ignoramus. OK, now that I’ve taken care of all your retorts for you, please continue to read the best idea to come along since the fast-forward button on the remote, which comes in so handy for skipping past all but the Kim Catrall scenes in “Sex and the City.” During Dave Campo’s first run as a college coach, the wishbone was all the rage. Have him quickly instruct the scout-team defense on how to defend it. Weis, a speed-reader when it comes to offensive X’s and O’s, could brush up on the particulars in no time, and then it’s just a matter of drilling the players on how to make the proper reads. Running the wishbone properly requires skilled reading of the defense and perfect timing on decisionmaking from the quarterback. It takes tons and tons of reps to perfect it. Perfect is not the standard for this KU offense. Put Christian Matthews at quarterback, Brandon Bourbon at fullback, Tony Pierson at left halfback, James Sims at right halfback, Mike Ragone at tight end and Jimmay Mundine on the other side of the field as a wide receiver. In the wishbone, nobody on the offense knows the play is until the ball is snapped. The defense calls the plays, based on whether it guns for the fullback, the first read, the quarterback run, the second read, or the pitch man (halfback), the third read. At least the offense would have a week head-start on the nation’s worst defense, just the sort of edge Weis seeks each week in the role of Big 12 underdog.

Giants sweep Series DETROIT (AP) — Finally pressed in the World Series, the San Francisco Giants finished off a most unexpected and stunning sweep. Marco Scutaro delivered one more key hit this October, hitting a go-ahead single with two outs in the 10th inning that lifted the Giants over the Detroit Tigers, 4-3, in Game 4 on Sunday night.

KANSAS UNIVERSITY FORWARD CAROLYN DAVIS (21) PUTS UP A SHOT over Washburn’s Bianca Fennessee during their exhibition game Sunday at Allen Fieldhouse. Davis played just a half in the Jayhawks’ 57-35 victory.

Davis sparks exhibition win By Benton Smith

Familiar herself with just how difficult it can be to recover from an anterior cruciate ligament tear, Kansas University senior point guard Angel Goodrich had some simple advice for her teammate, Carolyn Davis, before the women’s basketball team’s season-opening exhibition Sunday against Washburn. “Just go out there and play,” Goodrich told Davis, who was suiting up for the first time since tearing her left ACL on Feb. 12. “Don’t even think about it.” Davis, the Jayhawks’ senior forward from Houston, though

limited to 15 minutes of playing time, ran the Allen Fieldhouse floor, posted up and rebounded without a worry in the Jahyawks’ 57-35 victory. “From jump I was just ready to,” said Davis, who produced eight points, eight rebounds and two steals despite watching the second half from the bench. “I wasn’t thinking about my knee. I wasn’t thinking about anything but just playing the game.” Though the 6-foot-3 Davis expects to wear a brace on her left knee for most, if not all, of the upcoming season, she now feels used to the device she initially loathed. Davis began the game in the starting lineup, and though she

passed the ball out of the post on her first touch and missed the first jumper she took from the top of the key, she converted four of her next seven shot attempts. Davis faced up on the left block and went to the rim for a lay-up to give KU a 2-0 lead. She later went glass on a fadeaway from the right block to tie the game at 4. Her next bucket came after posting up in the paint with the shot clock winding down at the 15:39 mark of the first half. Finally, she scored an easy basket on the left baseline following a nifty Goodrich pass, putting KU up 14-10 with 11:34 left until halftime. Please see KU WOMEN, page 4B

Sims climbing charts By Matt Tait

Saturday’s career game from running back James Sims did nothing to change the all-too-familiar outcome for the 1-7 Kansas University football team. Despite getting 176 yards from their top offensive w e a p o n and lead- Sims ing visiting Texas for most of the second half, the Jayhawks dropped their seventh straight game and lost for the 17th time in a row in Big 12 play. With numbers like those, bright spots can be tough Please see SIMS, page 4B

KU’s Tharpe enamored of his little girl By Gary Bedore

One of Naadir Tharpe’s tiniest, yet most vocal, fans resides in his hometown of Worcester, Mass. That person is Naadir’s 9-month-old daughter, Amara Grace Tharpe, who voices her pleasure for her papa in an enthusiastic way. “She gets to screaming ... I wouldn’t say crying, but screaming like she wants to be talking to somebody,” Tharpe, Kansas University’s 5-foot-11, 170-pound sopho-

more basketball point guard, said with a smile. “I enjoy that. She looks right up in my face like she wants to say my name. “It’s crazy. A lot of times when I’m with her, I get real soft. I guess that’s what happens when you have your first little girl.” Tharpe admits he’s head over heels for his first-born child, who came to Lawrence for a visit this past summer and will be back to watch her dad come off the bench for KU at times this season. “I just love her. It’s hard

not to love her,” Tharpe said. “You look at her eyes. They are so bright. It’s hard to explain.” Tharpe, who played sparingly his first year out of Brewster Academy, went to work in the offseason to earn meaningful minutes behind starting point guard Elijah Johnson. He admits long sessions on the court and in the weight room have been easier to conquer because of added motivation in life. “Everything I do is no Please see THARPE, page 4B

Harden situation a blow to OKC OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The first big dose of small-market reality has hit the Oklahoma City Thunder. Before the Thunder even played their first real game following a trip to the NBA finals, the franchise parted ways with Sixth Man of the Year James Harden in a trade with the Houston Rockets, fracturing the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s core and substantially changing the second unit. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We made several efforts to try to make this work,â&#x20AC;? general manager Sam Presti said at a news conference Sunday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a point in every negotiation where you start to realize where things are lining up, and at that point you have to play the hand that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re dealt. I feel like as an organization, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve made some tough decisions. This one was right up there with them.â&#x20AC;? Presti said the Thunder made what was supposed to be a final offer on Friday, then approached him one last time before pulling off the trade Saturday night â&#x20AC;&#x201D; making sure that Harden realized he could be dealt if he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t accept. But Harden, who developed into one of the leagueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most dynamic shooting guards after being the No. 3 pick in the 2009 draft, still wanted more. Oklahoma City already had All-Stars Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook plus NBA blocks leader Serge Ibaka inked to long-term, eight-figure deals and â&#x20AC;&#x201D; even with an arena upgraded by taxpayer funds thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sold out for every game â&#x20AC;&#x201D; wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t willing to offer him a maximum contract. Presti said the Thunder made an â&#x20AC;&#x153;extraordinary effortâ&#x20AC;? to keep Harden and side-stepped whether the team tried to low-ball Harden. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s for other people to determine, I suppose, and ultimately weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll live with that. We understand what we were able to do, and what we did, and the significance and the importance it made, especially considering the commitments that it would have taken our payroll to,â&#x20AC;? Presti said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our ownership group was absolutely behind that effort.â&#x20AC;? Harden said Sunday he expects to sign a long-term deal with Houston before the regular season starts. He was saying the same thing about Oklahoma City when training camp began. Durant, Westbrook and Ibaka all took marginally less than they could have demanded on the open market to stay in Oklahoma City but Presti suggested â&#x20AC;&#x153;the term sacrifice gets thrown around maybe too loosely.â&#x20AC;? He said the Thunder didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t begrudge Harden for rejecting their offers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not going to judge anybody. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not going to put anything on anybody,â&#x20AC;? Presti said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to do the best thing for the franchise. In a lot of cases, in most cases, the players are going to do the best things for them. You hope that those things overlap, and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been very fortunate they have overlapped in a lot of cases.â&#x20AC;? The Thunder simply arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t in a position to spend like the Miami Heat, who went over the cap to add Ray Allen and Rashard Lewis after beating Oklahoma City in the finals, or the Los Angeles Lakers, who added All-Stars Steve Nash and Dwight Howard to a lineup that already featured Kobe Bryant and Pau Gasol. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think we all know that James Harden was a big part of their team. That goes without saying. He was a big part of why they made it to the finals,â&#x20AC;? the Heatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s LeBron James said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They got a couple pieces back that are really good as well. But we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know how it changes their team until they actually get out there.â&#x20AC;? Oklahoma City received guards Kevin Martin and Jeremy Lamb, two first-round draft picks and a second-round pick in the swap, and also sent Cole Aldrich, Daequan Cook and Lazar Hayward to the Rockets. Presti expects the draft picks to be critical to rebuilding quality depth at a low price.

JIMMIE JOHNSON CELEBRATES HIS SPRINT CUP WIN Sunday at Martinsville Speedway in Martinsville, Va.

Jimmie Johnson wins, takes over points lead MARTINSVILLE, VA. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Jimmie Johnson raced to his seventh career Martinsville Speedway victory to take the season points lead with three events left, holding off Kyle Busch on a restart with five laps to go Sunday. The five-time series champion moved two points ahead of Brad Keselowski, who finished sixth for his highest career finish at the track. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I know this championshipâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to come down to Homestead,â&#x20AC;? Keselowski said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve just got to be in position to where youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got a shot at it and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing the things itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to take.â&#x20AC;? Keselowski started 32nd, methodically worked his way forward, and was never really a factor until he took a late gamble to grab the lead â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and a crucial bonus point. He was leading the race briefly and he and Dale Earnhardt Jr. stayed out under a caution, while the other 16 cars on the lead lap all headed for pit road for fresh tires. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve learned a lesson here in the past not pitting late, and that certainly came into play,â&#x20AC;? Johnson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I felt like it was going to be a problem for him. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been there before and stayed out and got beat.â&#x20AC;? When the race went back to green with 19 laps to go, Keselowski was a sitting duck whose best bet was to hang on for as long as he could and then avoid any Martinsville mayhem that cropped up in a furious dash to the finish. Johnson, who led eight times for 193 laps, passed him on lap 487 on his way to making the race a bonus points bonanza. He got one for leading a lap, one for leading the most laps and three for the victory, wiping out a seven-point deficit. Busch was second, followed by Kasey Kahne, Aric Almirola, Clint Bowyer, Keselowski, Jeff Gordon and Brian Vickers.


Watney settles for 61, wins KUALA LUMPUR, MALAYSIA â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Nick Watney missed a chance for a 59 on Sunday in his CIMB Classic victory, closing with a course-record 10-under 61 at The Mines despite a bogey at the 18th. Needing a birdie on the par-4 18th for a 59, Watney drove into the left rough, failed to reach the green with his approach and left his long birdie pitch just short of the putting surface. The American finished at 22-under 262 and earned $1.3 million in the unofficial PGA Tour event, finishing a stroke ahead of 2011 champion Bo Van Pelt and Robert Garrigus and three ahead of Tiger Woods.

Frost wins AT&T in playoff SAN ANTONIO â&#x20AC;&#x201D; David Frost won the AT&T Championship on Sunday, beating Bernhard Langer with a birdie on the second hole of a playoff after overcoming a six-stroke deficit in the final round. Frost and Langer each shot 6-under 66 to finish at 8-under 208 on TPC San Antonioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Canyons Course. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t planning on this,â&#x20AC;? Frost said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Only when I hit it close on 13 (to set up birdie) did I think that it was just Bernhard and I (with a chance to win).â&#x20AC;? Second-round leader Mark Calcavecchia had a 74 to finish two strokes back. He bogeyed four of the first 11 holes.


Superstorm forces tweaks With a fierce superstorm bearing down on the East Coast, Suffolk Downs in Boston and Yonkers Raceway in New York have called off horse racing. Suffolk Downs scratched its card of thoroughbred racing and simulcasting for Monday. Yonkers Raceway called off live trotting and evening simulcasting for Monday and Tuesday nights as Hurricane Sandy made its way up the Atlantic. Yonkers is just north of New York City, which shut its mass transit system, closed its schools Monday and ordered hundreds of thousands of people to flee their homes. Boston also closed its schools. Also, the Washington Wizards moved up their departure from 2:30 p.m. to 8 a.m. today for their NBA season opener at Cleveland on Tuesday night.

DETROIT’S MIGUEL CABRERA, LEFT, WALKS AWAY after striking out to end Game 4 of the World Series as the Giants’ closer, Sergio Romo, center, and catcher Buster Posey celebrate. The Giants clinched a sweep of the Series with a 4-3 victory Sunday in Detroit. there was certainly no bad breaks, no fluke. “Simple, they did better than we did.” An NL team won the title for the third straight season, a run that hadn’t occurred in 30 years. Some find the streak surprising, considering the AL’s recent dominance in interleague play. Yet as every fan knows, the club that pitches best in the postseason usually prevails. Until the end, the Tigers thought one big hit could shift the momentum. It was an all-too-familiar October lament — Texas felt the same way when the Giants throttled them in 2010, and Tigers knew the feeling when St. Louis wiped them out in 2006. Howling winds made it feel much colder than the 44 degrees at gametime. Two wrappers blew across home plate after leadoff man Angel Pagan struck out, and fly balls played tricks in the breeze. The Giants started with their pregame ritual.

They clustered around Hunter Pence in the dugout, quickly turning into a bobbing, whooping, pulsing pack, showering themselves with sunflower seeds. A big league goodluck charm, Little League style. And once again, San Francisco took an early lead. Pence hit a one-hop drive over the centerfield fence for a double and Brandon Belt tripled on the next pitch for a 1-0 lead in the second. The next inning, Cabrera gave the Tigers a reason to think this might be their night. With two outs and a runner on first, Cabrera lofted an opposite-field fly to right — off the bat, it looked like a routine out shy of the warning track. But with winds gusting over 25 mph, the ball kept carrying, Pence kept drifting toward the wall and the crowd kept getting louder. Just like that, it was gone. Cabrera’s homer gave

Detroit its first lead of the Series, ended its 20-inning scoreless streak and reaffirmed a pregame observation by Tigers Hall of Famer Al Kaline. “The wind usually blows to right at this time of year,” Kaline said. In the fourth, Max Scherzer and catcher Gerald Laird teamed on a strike ‘em out-throw ‘em out double play. Scherzer yelled, first baseman Prince Fielder clenched his fist and the Tigers ran off the field on a chilly, windy, rainy evening. At last, it seemed, all the elements were in their favor. Trailing for the first time since Game 4 of the NL championship series, Posey and the Giants put a dent in Detroit’s optimism. Scutaro, the NLCS MVP, led off the sixth with a single and clapped all the way around the bases when Posey sent a shot that sailed just inside the left-field foul pole for a 3-2 lead. Posey, the only Giants

player on the field from the starting lineup in the Game 5 clincher in 2010, almost tripped nearing first base and he watched the ball and began his trot. Detroit wasn’t about to go quietly, however. Young, the ALCS MVP, made it 3-all with another opposite-field homer to right, this one a no-doubt drive. Fielder finished 1 for 14 (.111) for the Series. All 24 teams to take a 3-0 lead in the World Series have won it all. In fact, none of those matchups even reached a Game 6. This was the first sweep for an NL team since Cincinnati in 1990. Working on nine days’ rest and trying to extend the Tigers’ season, Scherzer kept them close into the seventh. Often recognized for his eyes — one is light blue, the other is brown — he’s also known as a solid postseason pitcher. Ditto-plus for Matt Cain, who was working on a nearly perfect year.

strike three right down the middle for the final out. On a night of biting cold, stiff breezes and some rain, the Giants combined the most important elements of championship baseball — great pitching, timely hitting and sharp defense. Series MVP Pablo Sandoval and the underdog Giants celebrated in the center of the diamond at Comerica Park after winning six elimination games this postseason. “Tonight was a battle,” said Giants star Buster Posey, who homered. “And I think tonight was a fitting way for us to end it because those guys played hard. They didn’t stop, and it’s an unbelievable feeling.” Cabrera delivered the first big hit for Detroit, interrupting San Francisco’s run of dominant pitching with a two-run homer that blew over the right-field wall in the third. Posey put the Giants ahead 3-2 with a two-run homer in the sixth and Delmon Young hit a tying home run in the bottom half. It then became a matchup of bullpens, and the Giants prevailed. Ryan Theriot led off the 10th with a single against Phil Coke, moved up on Brandon Crawford’s sacrifice and scored on Scutaro’s shallow single. Center fielder Austin Jackson made a throw home, to no avail. Sergio Romo struck out the side in the bottom of the 10th for his third save of the Series. The Giants finished the month with seven straight wins and their seventh Series championship. They handed the Tigers their seventh straight World Series loss dating to 2006. “Obviously, there was no doubt about it. They swept us,” Tigers manager Jim Leyland said. “So

| 3B

The Giants’ ace threw a perfect game in June, was the winning pitcher in the All-Star game in July, beat Cincinnati to clinch the division series and topped St. Louis in Game 7 of the NL championship series. After they left, the relievers decided it. Octavio Dotel shouted, “Yeah! Let’s go!” toward his dugout after striking out Posey to end the eighth. In the bottom half, winning pitcher Jeremy Affeldt got around a leadoff walk when he struck out Cabrera, a flinching Fielder and Young. Coke returned the favor in the top of the ninth, fanning the side. With Jose Valverde having lost his closer role during a shaky month, Coke stayed in for the 10th and faltered. The Giants became the first champion that hit the fewest home runs in the majors since St. Louis in 1982. Sandoval’s three drives in Game 1 started San Francisco’s romp, and its dominant pitching took over from there. The Giants became the first NL team since the Big Red Machine in the mid1970s to win two titles in a three-year span. Shut out for 56 years — Juan Marichal, Willie McCovey and Barry Bonds never won it all — their self-described “misfits” captured that elusive crown in 2010.

KANSAS CITY QUARTERBACK BRADY QUINN (9) IS TACKLED by Oakland defensive tackle Tommy Kelly during the first half of the Chiefs’ 26-16 loss Sunday in Kansas City, Mo. Quinn left the game during the first quarter due to what the team called a “head injury.”

Raiders roll over Chiefs KANSAS CITY, MO. (AP) — Carson Palmer walked off the field at Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday, where the Raiders had just won for the sixth straight time, and looked just like he did at the start. Not a grass stain on him. No laundry detergent needed. The subject of such scorn over the years, Palmer threw for 209 yards and two touchdowns while having all the time he needed in the pocket, leading Oakland to a 26-16 victory. “Phenomenal,” Palmer said. “I don’t think my jersey needs to be washed.” It was the Raiders’ first road win since beating the Chiefs last December, and certainly a satisfying one. Sebastian Janikowski was perfect on four field-goal attempts, and the Raiders (3-4) nearly became the third straight team to keep the Kansas City offense out of the end zone. The Chiefs got their lone touchdown on Dexter McCluster’s catch with 2:27 left in the game. Darren McFadden ran for 114 yards, and Denarius Moore and Darrius Heyward-Bey had touchdown catches for Oakland, which has won two straight after losing four of its first five. “It took us a while to get it going, but once it finally got going, we finished the game out well,” McFadden said. “We feel like with our offense, you just have to stick with it.” Helps that Palmer could have pitched a tent in his pocket. “I thought he managed the game really well and had tremendous poise,” Raiders coach Dennis Allen said. “We still have a lot of things to get cleaned up, but the good thing is that we are able to make those corrections after a win.” Meanwhile, the Chiefs (1-6) have lost four straight overall, their only win coming in overtime at New Orleans. They also haven’t led in regulation this season, the first time since at least 1940 that a team’s gone this long without a lead, according to STATS LLC. Matt Cassel threw for 218 yards in place of Brady Quinn, who left in the first half with what the team called a “head injury.” Quinn had started his second straight game even though Cassel was cleared to play following his own concussion sustained three weeks ago against Baltimore. “It’s unfortunate because I think the guys put a lot into it during the week,” Chiefs coach Romeo Crennel said. “You just have to go forward and do the best you can.” The Chiefs committed

four turnovers to run their league-leading total to 25, and their fourth-quarter touchdown was the first by the offense since Sept. 30 against San Diego. Jamaal Charles, their biggest offensive weapon, carried only five times for 4 yards. Why did Charles have so few attempts? “Now, that I’m not exactly sure, either,” Crennel said. Altogether, it’s little wonder that two more banners appeared prior to the game, towed behind an airplane over Arrowhead Stadium. They were paid for by disgruntled Chiefs fans and renewed their plea from earlier this season that general manager Scott Pioli be fired. The first play of the game pretty much summed up the confrontation between two of the league’s lousiest teams: Palmer threw into tight coverage and was intercepted by Stanford Routt. Naturally, the Chiefs countered by going threeand-out and punting. The Raiders finally got on the board when Palmer found Moore for a short completion that he turned into a 38-yard gain, and Janikowski connected from 36 yards for a 3-0 lead. The field-goal struggle was on. Janikowski hit from 38 yards early in the second quarter, and Ryan Succop matched him with a 30-yarder. Succop hit again from 42 yards late in the half to tie the game. The Raiders took the lead into halftime when the Chiefs’ Javier Arenas fumbled a punt while attempting to make a fair catch.

longer for myself now. It’s everything for her,” Tharpe said, acknowledging there’s even more desire someday to play basketball for pay with a child in his life. “Last year, coming in as a freshman, I found out I was having a little girl. At first I was nervous. Being a freshman and being a young dude, you don’t know what to expect from that as well as being in college away from her. I wasn’t able to see her born or anything like that. Things have definitely changed a lot.” Tharpe’s daughter entered his life just a few years after he lost his dad, Ronald Edward Tharpe, to a battle with cancer in 2006. “It’s weird when someone you love that’s so close passes away, you get somebody else,” Tharpe said. “I was able to receive my daughter. I feel she’s the up and coming of life.” Tharpe has taken to the role of being a dad, said his roommate, KU freshman Rio Adams. “He puts his daughter first, 24-7,” said Adams. “He talks to her all the time and talks about her all the time. She’s visited a couple times. She’s playful and sweet and doesn’t really cry much, which is abnormal for children her age. He’s definitely a natural.” KU’s players and coaches say a new and improved Tharpe will take the court this season. “I think Naadir has gotten a lot better,” KU coach Bill Self said, noting Tharpe “is a good shooter. If he and Rio play at a level they are capable of playing, I think we’ll be in pretty good shape (at backup point).” Noted red-shirt freshman forward Jamari Traylor: “He’s going to lead the team in the future. I’ve got a lot of confidence in him. He’s made great progress. I know when he gets his chance to shine, it’ll be a good opportunity for him, and he’ll make a name for himself.” Tharpe played sparingly in 32 games a year ago, totaling 29 points and 21 assists against 22 turnovers. “I’m definitely going to make sure I do as much as I can to help out this year,” Tharpe said. “I felt I lacked in that last year. “I felt I didn’t do what was needed to do to help my team, even though we made it to where we were at (national title game). It was because we had a senior point guard and other great players around him like Thomas (Robinson) and Travis (Releford) and Jeff (Withey). The team needed help from me.

KIAWAH ISLAND, S.C. — Junior Thanuttra Boonraksasat leads the Kansas University women’s golf team after shooting an even-par 72 in the first round of the Palmetto Intercollegiate on Sunday at the Oak Point Golf Club. The Jayhawks shot a 307 in the first round, which placed them 10th. KU was able to complete 14 holes in the second round and had improved to seventh place when play was suspended due to darkness. Kansas’ other scores: Meghan Potee, tied for 38th, 77; Yupaporn Kawinpakorn and Audrey Yowell, tied for 56th, 79; and Gabby DiMarco, tied for 72nd, 80. The tournament continues today.

KANSAS GUARD ANGEL GOODRICH SCOOPS UP A BALL in front of Washburn’s Allyssa Nikkel (11) during their exhibition game Sunday at Allen Fieldhouse. KU won, 57-35.


The forward’s performance pleased Kansas coach Bonnie Henrickson, who said Davis has shown progress throughout the past eight weeks, since returning to regular basketball activities. “That’s as good as she’s looked,” Henrickson said of her star post player’s performance against NCAA Div. II Washburn. Goodrich, who suffered a pair of ACL tears in her first two years at Kansas, said it was good to see Davis back in uniform. “I know the excitement of getting to step out on the court for the first time in six months,” said Goodrich, who had 11 points and team highs of six assists and six steals. “It’s a great feeling. It’s so exciting, and we were excited for her.” Henrickson didn’t feel as inspired by the play of a couple of other KU forwards. After sophomores Bunny Williams, who started, and Chelsea Gardner, who started the sec-


to find. But it doesn’t take a microscope or a magnifying glass to pinpoint the best thing this improving Kansas football team has going for it. He wears No. 29, carries the ball with a purpose on every play and, after Saturday, has topped the 100yard mark in four straight games, vaulting him into the conversation about the Big 12’s best backs. “I didn’t learn anything that I didn’t already know, that we haven’t already said,” KU coach Charlie Weis said Saturday. “Coming out of the spring, I said the same thing about Sims that I’m saying now, and I’ll say it again. I don’t know if there’s a better back in this league. If they exist, I have not seen them yet.” Let’s go inside the numbers for a look at Sims’ special streak. During his first game back from a suspension that forced him to miss the first three games of the season — and fueled his fire to run harder than ever — Sims ran for 91 yards and two touchdowns on 18 carries in a loss at Northern Illinois. Those totals merely served as the appetizer for what was to come. In three of his next four games, including Saturday’s loss to UT, Sims carried the ball 28 times for an average of 131 yards. In the one game during that stretch in which he failed to log 28 carries, Sims ran 27 times for 138 yards in a 20-14 loss to Oklahoma State. Sims owns single-game team-bests in rushing attempts (28), yards (176) and touchdowns (2) this season, and he also is responsible for the longest reception from scrimmage (51 yards vs. Oklahoma State) and the longest run from scrimmage (64 yards Saturday vs. Texas).

ond half in place of Davis, combined to shoot 1-for-11, the coach said both needed to do more work early in the post. “Chelsea and Bunny are better than that,” Henrickson said, “and they’ve got to be better than that.” Sophomore guard Natalie Knight tied Goodrich with a team-high 11 points. Sophomore Asia Boyd scored eight points off the bench, while senior guard Monica Engelman and junior substitute forward Tania Jackson contributed six points apiece. Gardner finished with five on 1-for-7 shooting. Henrickson said the KU medical staff will continue to monitor Davis’ progress, but a timetable for her playing normal minutes couldn’t be predicted. The Jayhawks’ second and final exhibition against Fort Hays State will tip off at 2 p.m. Sunday.

That 64-yarder Sims ripped off against the Longhorns was the longest run by a KU player since 2006, when former KU great and current Canadian Football League standout Jon Cornish delivered a 69-yard run in the season opener against Northwestern State. Asked when he realized Sims could become this type of multi-purpose back in his offense, Weis reiterated something he had been saying since April. “I’ve known it for quite some time,” Weis said. Sims’ big day against UT pushed him over the 2,000-yard mark for his career, making him just the 11th Jayhawk to eclipse 2,000 yards. Considering the junior from Irving, Texas, has four games remaining this season and an entire senior year ahead of him, it seems fair to start looking ahead at his pursuit of the top spot on KU’s all-time rushing list. With 2,091 yards, Sims currently sits in 11th place, 148 yards behind Jake Sharp for 10th place. In addition, Sims already ranks sixth all-time in rushing attempts (479) and tied for sixth all-time in career 100-yard games (nine). KU’s all-time rushing leader is June Henley, who, from 1993-96, racked up 3,841 yards on 823 carries. Tony Sands (1988-91) ranks second with 3,788 yards, and Laverne Smith (1973-76) is the only other player above 3,000 yards at 3,074.

Sims still has a ways to go before he’s mentioned in that company, but his recent stretch and breakthrough season certainly seem to indicate that getting there is possible. “I feel more confident now than I ever have,” Sims said Saturday. “I’ve been trusting my offensive line, and they have been doing great at doing their job. I have to give those guys credit. We are an offensive unit.” Sims is a team-first player who would trade in his personal success for more wins for his team. That trait again was on display on Saturday, as Sims refused to smile while fielding questions about his big day and instead continued to talk about another frustrating step forward for his team. “After this game, of course we are down,” he said. “But we see the progress as a program. That’s all that really matters at this time. We have to take it week by week, practice by practice and just continue to work as hard as we can.”

Reesing spoke to team Weis said he invited former KU quarterback Todd Reesing to speak to the team before Saturday’s game against Reesing’s hometown Longhorns. “He’s just proud,” Weis said. “He talked about his experience, he lives in Austin (Texas), and he was kind of counting on us winning the game so he could go back to Austin and talk a lot of trash and it just didn’t work out that way.” No injury news Weis said defensive end Toben Opurum and linebacker Jake Love missed Sunday’s practice, but added that he did not yet know their status for this week. Opurum and Love were both injured on the same play late in the fourth quarter Saturday.

Kansas State hopes perfect good enough MANHATTAN (AP) — All that Kansas State can do now is try to achieve perfection. That’s all the third-ranked Wildcats control. The rest of their fate belongs in the hands of other teams, their coaches who vote in the polls, and some whirring computers that will crunch a bunch of numbers and spit out what they believe are the best two teams to play for a national championship. Kansas State has already beaten three ranked teams on the road in Oklahoma, West Virginia and Iowa State, and blitzed then-No. 15 Texas Tech 55-24 on Saturday to remain undefeated. The problem is that topranked Alabama, No. 2 Oregon and fourth-ranked Notre Dame are also perfect, and all of them have strong cases to play for the BCS championship — and that means a lot of scoreboard watching as the Wildcats play out the easiest four-game stretch of their season. “It’s tough not to, knowing you’re so close, but man, you just have to focus in on next week, focus in on next game,” wide receiver Chris Harper said. “It’s really hard not to look ahead, but the position that we’re in, you can’t do it.” It’s been more than a decade since the Wildcats (8-0, 5-0 Big 12) were in this position. The last time they started a season with eight straight wins was 1999, when they eventually stumbled against Nebraska. The previous year, they were seven minutes from playing for a national title when Texas A&M staged a dramatic rally in the Big 12 title game that Sirr Parker capped with a touchdown run in the second overtime to deal the Wildcats their first loss. The Wildcats won’t have to worry about a Big 12 title game this season, now that the league only has 10 members. And that could turn out to hurt them, denying them one last chance to rack up a marquee victory — perhaps in a rematch with the Sooners — in the final week of the season. Instead, Kansas State’s final four games are against Oklahoma State, TCU, Baylor and Texas. That means the first undefeated season in school history might not be enough to book a trip to Miami if the Ducks and Fighting Irish are more impressive in finishing out their seasons against higher-rated teams such as

KANSAS STATE QUARTERBACK COLLIN KLEIN (7) CELEBRATES a touchdown with wide receiver Tramaine Thompson during the Wildcats’ 55-24 rout of Texas Tech on Saturday in Manhattan. Southern California, Stanford and Oregon State. “I mean, you look around the country and they make more of college football than they do of the Presidential elections. That shuts down on Saturday and all it is is football,” Kansas State coach Bill Snyder said. “Everybody gets caught up in it. The world gets caught up in it.” Interesting that Snyder brought up the subject of elections, by the way, because the Wildcats could be doing some campaigning down the stretch. Along with the computer formulas, the BCS standings also take into account a team’s ranking in two polls: one comprised of coaches and the other, called the Harris Poll, which includes former players, coaches, administrators and current and former media members. Snyder will leave the stumping to someone else, though. That’s not his style. He’s just worried about beating the Cowboys next Saturday. “It is so easy to lose sight of things,” he said. “I am proud of our young guys

up to this point in time because you do not know about tomorrow. Up to this point in time they have handled it well. They go back to work. It is not easy, it just gets harder. I keep saying there is a border right there, and what we do from this point in time on will define us collectively.” Collin Klein, who bolstered his Heisman Trophy résumé with another fourtouchdown performance against Texas Tech, is taking the same detached view as his sagely coach. “We’re fortunate to have a lot of guys here, too, who’ve been around, and we understand where we’ve been and where we’ve come from not so very recently, not too far back down the road,” Klein said. “That’s very vivid in our minds.” The Wildcats went 6-6 in Klein’s freshman season, back when he was a wide receiver. They went 7-6 two years ago. Now, after winning 10 games and reaching the Cotton Bowl last season, they’re playing their way into the BCS picture. If not the national title game, one of the other bowl games.

Irish pass Oregon in BCS The Associated Press

Now Notre Dame is ahead of Oregon in the BCS standings. The Fighting Irish became the latest team to move past Oregon on Sunday, taking third place behind Alabama and Kansas State. The Ducks remained fourth. Florida fell out of the top five with a 17-9 loss to Georgia, helping to set the field in the race for the BCS title game with a month to go in the regular season. Alabama is locked in at No. 1, and if the Crimson Tide can keep winning it will play for its third championship in four years. The Wildcats (.9400), Fighting Irish (.9147) and Ducks (.9136) need to remain unbeaten, and keep an eye on each other. The computers ratings are still holding the Ducks back because their strength of schedule lags behind the other contenders.

The Ducks are second in the Harris poll and USA Today coaches’ poll, but ranked fifth by the computer ratings. Kansas State is third in each poll, and Notre Dame is fourth. But according to the computers, the Wildcats and Fighting Irish are tied for first. Oregon’s upcoming schedule could help solve the Ducks’ problem. Oregon plays three opponents in the BCS top 25 (Southern California, Stanford and Oregon State) in its last four games, starting with the Trojans in Los Angeles on Saturday. The Pac-12 title game, if the Ducks get there, should give Oregon another quality opponent. Notre Dame, with four games left, faces only one more team with a winning record (USC). Kansas State has three winning teams in its four remaining opponents, though only No. 25 Texas is in the BCS top 25. Alabama is an over-

whelming No. 1 in the Harris poll and USA Today coaches’ polls, and comes in third behind Notre Dame and Kansas State in the computer ratings. The Tide’s BCS average is .9759. Alabama has what looks to be its toughest test of the season coming up this week, when it visits fifth-place LSU on Saturday in an SEC West showdown. Kansas State plays Oklahoma State at home Saturday and Notre Dame faces Pittsburgh. Down the list, it looks as if Boise State could make another run at the BCS, with help from the Big Ten. The Broncos are 21st in the current standings. If they can get into the top 16 and be ahead of a champion from one of the automatic qualifying conferences, the Broncos would earn an automatic bid to the marquee bowls, The highest ranked Big Ten team is Nebraska at 22nd.

Tannehill knocked out of Miami’s victory The Associated Press

Quarterback Ryan Tannehill was injured on the Miami Dolphins’ second possession of the game. The Indianapolis Colts lost cornerback Vontae Davis to a sprained left knee on the Tennessee Titans’ opening drive. At least Tannehill and Davis each got to celebrate a victory — Kansas City quarterback Brady Quinn got hurt in the first half of the Chiefs’ 26-16 loss to the Oakland Raiders. Miami turned to Matt Moore after Tannehill injured his left knee and quadriceps muscle on a sack by Calvin Pace, and Moore threw a touchdown pass to Anthony Fasano to help the Dolphins beat the New York Jets 30-9 on Sunday for their third straight victory. Coach Joe Philbin had no immediate word on

the severity of the injury, saying Tannehill would be evaluated after the Dolphins arrived home. Moore filled in nicely, finishing 11 of 19 for 131 yards after Tannehill was 2 of 5 for 18 yards. Tannehill was drafted with the eighth overall pick, which made him the first quarterback taken in the opening round by the Dolphins since Dan Marino in 1983. He beat out Moore for the starting job during training camp. Davis went down defending Chris Johnson on a run during Indianapolis’ 19-13 overtime victory at Tennessee. He stayed on the field for a couple minutes before walking off. He was replaced by Cassius Vaughn. Colts tight end Coby Fleenor hurt a shoulder in the first half and had one pass thrown at him in the second half.

Dear Annie: I’ve been married for 47 years to a man who is 13 years older than I am. He reminds me often that he is 86 and set in his ways. For much of our marriage, I have carried the load around the house, but now it is worse. My husband barely does anything. At least he has a hobby that keeps him busy. Otherwise, he would sit in our den recliner watching TV all day. I mostly confine myself to our bedroom because if I set foot in the den, it becomes a shouting match since he cannot hear me because the TV is so loud. And he gets angry if I ask him to turn it down. He got a new TV for Father’s Day, and I am barely allowed to watch it. He doesn’t even have the courtesy to listen or speak to me if he is reading the newspaper. I know where I am on the totem pole. I get no

respect from him. I guess things are not going to get better. I went as far as packing my bags and renting a car. You would think that would have made a difference, but no such luck. I don’t want to burden anyone with my problems, especially my children. I have cried many nights. It helps simply to unburden myself to you, but I know it won’t last. What do I do? — An Unhappy Prisoner Dear Unhappy: Your husband has decided to settle into a sedentary old

Competition theme stars “The Voice” (7 p.m., NBC) enters its “Knockout Round” phase, from which only 20 artists will emerge and advance to the live performance phase. As a series, “The Voice” continues to be the engine of NBC’s modest revival. It is clearly more popular than Fox’s “X-Factor” and has provided a strong lead-in for “Revolution.” The night’s theme of competition continues on “Dancing With the Stars” (8 p.m., ABC). I was in England last week visiting friends and had a chance to sample “Strictly Come Dancing,” the British version of “Stars” that has run there since 2004 and that was inspired by “Come Dancing,” a popular program broadcast from 1949 to 1998. The U.S. and U.K. versions share many similarities, most notably the presence of Len Goodman and Bruno Tonioli. Like “Dancing,” it seemed to feature former soap stars and sports figures. I was struck by the silly, if comparatively chaste, outfits of the dancers. It seemed less “Vegas” than the American program, showcasing a lot less cleavage. I was assured by my British host, as she sat glued to model Jerry Hall’s dreadful (and final) performance, watching along with her 9- and 12-year-old children, that it was a “family show.” That may explain why the British series continues to set the national conversation.

Speaking of national attention and long-running competition, the Detroit Tigers host the San Francisco Giants in Game Five of the World Series (6:30 p.m., Fox), if required.

On another sports note, Billy Unger, star of “Lab Rats,” hosts “My Life as an NBA Rookie” (6 p.m., Disney XD), a look at Anthony Davis, power forward for the New Orleans Hornets. The rookie is seen practicing with the 2012 USA Basketball Men’s National Team, attending the NBA draft and discussing how first-year professional players prepare for training camp and opening night.

Tonight’s other highlights

The Arizona Cardinals host the San Francisco 49ers in NFL Football (7:30 p.m., ESPN).

A shut-in collects clutter to compensate for his family’s Nazi past on “Hoarders” (8 p.m., A&E).

“Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations” (8 p.m., Travel) visits the Dominican Republic.

Evidence points to an imminent attack on “Hawaii Five-0” (9 p.m., CBS).

Nora requires immediate attention on “Revolution” (9 p.m., NBC).

Castle becomes entangled in some grim findings on “Castle” (9 p.m., ABC).


Rock musician Denny Laine is 68. Singer Melba Moore is 67. Actor Richard Dreyfuss is 65. Actress Kate Jackson is 64. Actor Dan Castellaneta (”The Simpsons”) is 55.

age, and you aren’t ready for that. But marriage vows include “in sickness and in health,” and this is part of the deal. Unless you are looking to divorce him, we recommend you immerse yourself in your own hobbies and interests. If the TV is too loud, see whether you can find amplifying headphones that he is willing to use. Don’t try to converse with him when he’s watching. Get out of the house instead. You’re not a “prisoner.” Meet friends for dinner. Work out at the health club. Ask a girlfriend to go to the movies. Take the grandchildren on a field trip. Join a choir or community theater. Find ways to keep yourself occupied so you are fulfilled and content, and so that your problems with Hubby recede into the background of your life. Dear Annie: I am having a party for my child’s


For Monday, Oct. 29: Charisma and intensity mark this year. You will look at life more deeply. If you are single, a slew of admirers follow you nearly wherever you go. If you are attached, your relationship is exciting. 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)  Curb a possessive streak, as it could cause a problem in your interactions. You also might become quite competitive with someone, which could strain the trust that exists between you. Tonight: Don’t let others pressure you. Taurus (April 20-May 20)  Your will could be tested by someone who is just as strong as you are. Others might not want to be around you with this power struggle going on. Tonight: Make peace, not war. Gemini (May 21-June 20)  You might want to be hard to find with today’s Full Moon looming over you. Recognize a tendency to be more sensitive than you realize when dealing with others. Tonight: The wise shall not be found. Cancer (June 21-July 22)  Realize the different possibilities that surround a key relationship. Make time for this person. Tonight: You soon will have a lot to smile about. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)  You are in the limelight, and you can’t seem to escape it. You might feel tired and withdrawn when dealing with others’ issues, and a misunderstanding could occur as a result. Tonight: A must appearance. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

first birthday. We are already overrun with toys in our home. Right now, he prefers to play with mixing bowls and boxes rather than store-bought toys. Is it proper to indicate on the invitation “no toys, please”? We’d much rather get clothing or money to put into a college fund. — Grateful Mama of Little One Dear Mama: It is never appropriate to tell your guests what they should get you. Unless you want to ask people to bring a toy to donate to charity (a lovely idea), you should not specify anything on the invitations. If people should ask, it is OK to tell them your preferences, and you also can make suggestions to one or two people and ask them to spread the word. Otherwise, return the gifts or give them to a charity so underprivileged children can get something for the holidays.

 Reach out to someone at a distance. This person often makes suggestions that you see as unusual yet effective. Tonight: Decide on a trip in the near future. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)  Deal with a partner on a one-on-one level. You could prevent a misunderstanding, though you might need to clarify a plan of action first. Tonight: Be with a special friend. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)  Defer to others and appease their requests rather than get into a power struggle. You will be much happier as a result. Tonight: Let someone else make the first move. Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)  You might choose to take a practical approach at this point. You have some concerns that you have not chosen to share. Tonight: Move forward with a project. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)  Your creativity surges. You also could feel quite amorous and just be waiting for the right time to express your deeper feelings. Tonight: Follow your feelings. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)  You are able to relax around those you know well. You might be feeling as if you want to spend more time at home, yet your work or commitments force you to be out more and more. Tonight: Make it easy and stay at home. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)  You have a lot to say, and your words could trigger multiple reactions. Use care and just smile. Tonight: Hang out with friends. — The astrological forecast should be read for entertainment only.

Get creative with candy corn BY KIM COOK, ASSOCIATED PRESS


ne of the most enduring of Halloween icons, candy corn is now more than 130 years old. Back in the early 1900s, when the little striped treat was one of a variety of fondant novelties crafted into shapes like turnips, chestnuts and leaves, workmen had to run buckets of hot, sugary slurry back and forth across molds to make it. Today, companies like Jelly Belly and Brach’s produce more than 35 million pounds of candy corn — most of it around Halloween. “One of the reasons candy corn has remained so popular is that it’s a ‘limited edition.’ This is really the only time of year you can easily get it, and that limited availability makes it attractive,” says Susan Whiteside, spokeswoman for the National Confectioner’s Association. Candy corn has become not only a staple of the trick-or-treat bowl, but an inspiration for seasonal decor. Whether you’re setting a festive scene or just indulging a nostalgic affection, there are lots of ways to use candy corn. You can even make some yourself — both edible and non-edible versions. Candy corn kernels have more visual impact en masse than individually. An array of clear lidded jars filled to the brim looks wonderful. Dump a bag or two in the bottom of a hurricane or large vase; add a pillar candle, Halloween ornament or twisty branches painted black or gold and you’ve got a great centerpiece. Woman’s Day magazine suggests hotgluing kernels to Styrofoam balls for colorful bowl fillers. ( Candy corn topiaries can be made by studding foam or paper cones, adding stems and placing in pots. Wreaths made of rows of candy, hung with a black ribbon, look striking. And while you’ve got the glue out, consider adding a few candy corns to twigs to create candy “blossoms.” Or, if you’re patient, try stringing kernels into a garland for the mantel or door frame.

GLASS HURRICANES are filled with colorful candy corn and nestling pillar candles inside, an interesting tabletop display suggested by Woman’s Day magazine’s craft editors. Making faux candy corn is easy, with a few craft materials in the signature colors of orange, yellow and white. Wool retailer Lion Brand provides free online patterns to crochet stuffed toys and little carry bags ( Get out the paint pots and paint the top and base of orange traffic cones for clever Halloween-night driveway markers. Better Homes & Gardens’ website offers instructions to make a door decoration by cutting a foam cone in half lengthwise, painting it and adding dried fall plant material. Spray paint gourds and pumpkins for more entryway decor ( Ready-made decor with the candy corn motif is easy to find; look for string lights (, votive holders (, throw pillows ( and fabric (

Finally, if you’re up for making your own treats, Food Network star Alton Brown has a recipe online ( Evoke the idea of candy corn by creating tricolor gelatin or sherbet parfaits, and topping pretzels or cupcakes with tinted icing. Nabisco is selling a limited run of Oreos with candy-corn-colored filling ( Jamie Lothridge, a middle-school teacher and avid baker in Toledo, Ohio, who blogs about her passion at, has already repurposed the Oreos by turning them into truffles. “As a recipe developer, new ingredients get my creativity flowing. I’ve long been a candy corn fanatic, and autumn is my favorite season, so making a recipe with all my favorite things is kind of a dream come true,” she says.




Scary story contest yields thrilling results B

e afraid. Be very afraid. This year, when we put out the call for scary stories from students in elementary, middle and high schools, we weren’t disappointed. About 200 writers tried to spook us, and many did. To start the stories, we gave students the prompt, “I was walking home from school on an unusually dark afternoon when I felt a pair of eyes staring right at me.” In students’ imaginations, those eyes belonged to vampires, hairy beasts, old ladies and even Halloween ninjas. After much deliberation by Journal-World staff judges, we chose the top story from each grade level. Our contest winners are Maria Matamoros, elementary school; Ryan Leibold, middle school; and Carolyn Weiler, high school. Read their scary stories on the following pages. Each category had a few top stories, so the runners-up will be posted at LJWorld. com. Look for stories online by these writers: Raeleigh Heck and Marian Frick, elementary school; Noah Haas and Stephanie Reed, middle school; and Caleb Woodard, Katie Guyot and Conor Hiatt, high school. We appreciate the hard work these students put in to give us a fright, and we hope you will, too. So read on — if you dare. — Katie Bean RYAN LEIBOLD, 13, LEFT, Carolyn Weiler, 15, top right, and Maria Matamoros, 10, are the Lawrence Journal-World scary story winners.

Elementary school winner BY MARIA MATAMOROS


was walking home from school, on an unusually dark afternoon when I felt a pair of eyes staring right at me. Turning around, I expected to find my little sister, Wendy, but instead I found a blanket of fog, starting from the little valley and going down the creek, creeping up the hill and covering the little town called Evergreen’s Burge (because it was lined with evergreen trees). That’s strange, I thought, there wasn’t fog a minute ago. Leaping back to the path, I decided to take the alley instead of the main street. It’s safer to take the main street, but it’s faster to take the alley. Wanting to get home where it’s warm, I skipped down the alley. Suddenly, I heard a twig snap and stopped abruptly in my tracks. Slowly I turned around, but just in time to see a large, brown, leather boot slip behind the corner. Someone’s stalking me! I thought as I sprinted down the alley. I wanted to get home more than anything else. A couple of times I risked a peek behind me. Nothing but fog. When I got to my front door, I was out of breath. I still had enough energy to yank open the door, sprint up the stairs, dive into my room, lock the door and hide under my bed. It didn’t take long for my mom to creep up the stairs after me. Whew! Mom’s home! I thought, unlocking the door for her to come in.

A man with a plain white T-shirt on and some jeans stepped into my room. His long beard almost touched the carpet. Brown, leather boots covered his feet. A grim expression was upon his face. “You have five minutes,” he croaked. Turning on his heels, he jumped down the stairs and sprinted out the door. He was the one stalking me! I thought as I jumped down the stairs after him. Opening the front door, I saw nothing but fog. Slamming the front door, I thought, where is everyone? Tick! Tick! Tick! What’s that? I think as I searched for my MP3 player. Tick! Tick! Tick! There it sounded again! Tick! Tick! Tick! I decide not to pay attention to it, so instead I listened to “Set Fire to The Rain” by Adele. I thought, What could be making that sound? I’m being silly. There’s nothing in this house that could hurt me. Maybe I should go outside just in case. Dropping my MP3 player on the dresser, I jumped down the stairs and out the door. Walking through the fog, I thought, I’m being a chicken! My house is the safest place in our neighborhood and I’m scared of it. I should just go home. Finally deciding to walk back home, I turned around. BOOM! As I peered though the smoke, I spotted my home in a pile of ash and rubble … and heard an eerie laugh in the darkness. — Maria Matamoros, 10, is a fifth-grader at St. John Catholic School.

Middle school winner BY RYAN LEIBOLD


was walking home from school on an unusually dark afternoon when I felt a pair of eyes staring right at me. I continued to walk forward, toward my house, not even daring to look behind my shoulder. The chilled air pushed against my back, causing my caramel brown hair to get into my face. The wind pushed me as if it were trying to warn me to keep moving, and instead, I found that I had begun to slow down. My feet slowed, and I finally halted, even though my head told me to run. I felt icy tears form along the rims of my eyes, and fog growing on my crooked glasses. The subtle tap of shoes rose up from behind. Stop, please stop I chanted in my head, feeling the straps of my backpack. Suddenly, my shoulder grew extremely heavy, as someone’s cold, stiff hand rested along my left shoulder. “You need to take the rose off of the grave, please,” a

voice begged — it sounded scared. “Who are you?” I asked. But I knew it was Ethan pretending to be Athenzo. Athenzo was a part of some stupid curse my friends made up to scare me, but I wasn’t foolish enough to fall victim to this curse. The curse of Athenzo says that there once was a young man named Athenzo who had the love of his life stolen from him unfairly, and due to this shock, he passed away. The woman that Athenzo had lost was named Rose, and so legend says that if you touch the rose that is on his grave, your soul will take his place. And you will forever sit, waiting for someone else to touch the rose on the grave so you may be free. Overall, I thought the curse was pretty stupid, but I also knew that Ethan was foolish enough to attempt it. I mustered enough strength to twist my head around, and I fell back on the sidewalk. There was a small sting in my elbows as I skidded back slightly. In front of me,

I swear I had seen Ethan staring at me. Only his pupils were bleach white, and he appeared transparent. The curse was true, and Ethan had taken Athenzo’s place. I screamed as I ran across the street. I headed for the graveyard remembering that he had told me to remove the rose. Maybe if I moved the rose, Ethan would be free of the curse. I sprinted, passed a few tombstones and stopped at Athenzo’s grave. One single rose lay on the frosted dirt. I clutched it tightly and threw it far away from the grave. Suddenly, I felt my stomach flip and my body dissolving. I felt myself disappear into the ground, and my eyes burned. I then realized that Ethan had tricked me into touching the rose, and now he was free. I had been fooled into giving up my soul for what would probably be decades. — Ryan Leibold, 13, is an eighth-grader at West Middle School.



High school winner BY CAROLYN WEILER


was walking home from school on an unusually dark afternoon when I felt a pair of eyes staring right at me. It wasn’t an intimidating sort of feeling, just enough of one to make me aware that they knew that I existed and they were paying attention. I could feel the crisp clean air swoop my hair backwards as I skipped over lines in the sidewalk, watching as the jack-o’-lanterns sitting atop neighbors’ porches began to look eerier and eerier as the last rays of sun slipped under the horizon in front of me. The feeling struck me again, and I instinctively whipped around and scanned behind me. No one. It’s just a stupid holiday! Halloween is really no different from the rest of the chilly calendar days of October, yet here I was, scared half to death of something that wasn’t even really there. No matter how many times this popped into my head, how many times I took deep breaths or used logic, I couldn’t rid myself of the feeling. It was almost in the wind. My footsteps quickened as I headed through the empty tallgrass lot in front of my house. With the sun completely down, the dark held me close, wrapping me in an infinite amount of possibilities, even more reasons to worry. Someone drew in a breath behind me; it was real. No longer was it only my imagination. I immediately threw myself forward, sprinting, finding it hard to catch my breath, swimming through the cold, heavy atmosphere.

Off in the distance, a porch light was on. My porch light. My glasses started to fog up with my hot exhales that clashed with the frigid breezes. Heavy, unbalanced footsteps followed mine — whoever or whatever was behind me was gaining, and quickly. I screamed as loud as I could, hoping that if I went down, right here, right now, maybe someone would hear. Maybe someone back home would come looking, maybe someone would dial a phone. The end of the lot was a few feet away at most. I leaped ahead, hoping I could reach the flat cement of my drive before my pursuer. As I hit the ground, it clung onto my ankle, scratching and struggling against my sharp kicks. I hit something with my heel and felt the grip loosen. Looking down only long enough to see blood spilling from my wounds, I took off. Skipping my porch steps with one jump and flinging the door open, locking it behind me, I was safe. I fell into a slump, finally losing adrenaline. I shoved my socks off quickly to examine the slash in my ankle. To my disbelief, it was gone. The skin that was torn and bleeding just seconds before lay taut and untouched. A wave of laughter overcame me; I felt outwitted. What a trick — a day of the year can fool the human mind and pin one person against another without even a single word.

Be proactive to prevent political disputes Dear Dr. Wes and Katie: I am dreading the holidays. All summer my family argued about politics. I was home from college, and I’m more liberal than my family. By Thanksgiving, we’ll know who wins the next election, and either way it’s going to be horrible. My family doesn’t argue about these things in a civil way. They argue like they’re on Fox News, and it always gets personal. Suggestions? Katie: On the first day of school, my AP Politics teacher told the class that there are simply some issues that people (teens and adults alike) can’t discuss calmly and intelligently. For families like yours, that seems to encompass all political issues. I’m no stranger to your situation. My parents are split evenly, one liberal and one conservative. On any given night, you can see my mom watching MSNBC in one room and my dad tuned to Fox News in the other. At our family reunions — attended by every political shade of blue, red and purple in the crayon box — we’ve learned to press the “taboo button” the moment a hint of public policy comes up. Ideally, debates should expose open minds to differing viewpoints, but in reality, few people start arguments with the idea of changing their own minds. Ideology turns to cement when hot topics like tax policy and health care rear up. No matter how friendly a post-election debate may seem at the outset, political issues are inherently divisive and will only serve to further undermine holidays’ true meaning: family unity. I suggest you ask your family members to leave partisanship on the front stoop for the holidays. We can’t wipe our core values off on the doormat, nor should we, but it’s fair to request that no one invite the hovering spirits of Obama and Romney to dinner. The trick is getting the whole

Double TAKE DR. WES CRENSHAW AND KATIE GUYOT family on board, which means speaking with them long before the holidays begin. You might not all vote together on Election Day, but you may get a unanimous vote for a politics-free holiday if you’re direct about how you feel. Holidays are meant to bring families together. You’re only going to be home for a few days, so encourage them to waste as little time as possible on unwinnable battles from opposite sides of the aisle. Dr. Wes: I find this an unusually disturbing letter, even as what you describe is as common now as apple pie. When my college girlfriend came to visit my family over the holidays, I found her crying in the bedroom. Asked, she said she had concluded that my family hated each other because we’d argued so much at dinner. I genuinely had no idea what she was talking about. I recalled discussing nothing more than the benefits and shortcomings of China’s adherence to a communist political system in the postWWII era. She agreed that was the topic but insisted we must hate each other if

we would argue like this. Eventually she came to see that this was all in good intellectual fun, perhaps even an expression of our love for one another, and she married me anyhow. Ah, those were the days. A time when people could argue about the big issues of the world and still like each other — and I’m talking the era of the Cold War, Watergate, Ford, Carter and Reagan. It wasn’t that we all agreed on stuff. Far from it. We just talked about that stuff in a way that didn’t degrade one another and ourselves. Today, the tenor is so angry, vicious and devoid of logic that I find new relevance in my wife’s concerns about families “hating each other.” The national vitriol is filtering down to the dinner table, dividing families, breaking up friendships and making people as socially irrational as the Mad Men who write commercials for Super-PACS. I have a friend who constantly gets what he terms “crazy emails” from fringe groups, some of which he fears are being monitored as terrorist threats. They come from his dad. So here’s an idea: Let’s not. There are hundreds of places to discuss politics today, some better than others. Do exactly as Katie suggests and ask your family to quell the rancor over Thanksgiving or Christmas, lest you end up crying in the bedroom. And if they refuse, excuse yourself politely, go to a friend’s house and ask them to text you when they’re done. Neither Obama nor Romney will ever know you’re gone. And by the way new young adults, don’t forget to vote. — Send your confidential 200-word question on adolescence and parenting to Double Take opinions and advice are not a substitute for psychological services.

HALLOWEEN HODGEPODGE Schools put on range of fall celebrations BY EMILY MULLIGAN


or most children, Oct. 31 is a hyperactive day of costumes, candy and jack-o’-lanterns. While many Lawrence schoolchildren will have a special school day on the 31st, replete with Halloween parties and parades, several local schools have adapted their October celebrations to allow for broader participation and appeal. Lawrence public school district does not have an official policy about Halloween celebrations. “We leave it up to each school to work with the staff and parent groups to decide what to do,” says Julie Boyle, school district spokeswoman. Because of that policy, the public schools take a wide range of approaches to the holiday. SEASONAL CELEBRATIONS This is the first year that there will be no classroom parties on Halloween at Cordley School, 1837 Vermont. Instead, because of cultural sensitivity, the school has moved the focus away from holidays for all of its school parties, choosing to do service projects and put on parties in celebration of the projects. “Halloween doesn’t fit everyone’s culture, and we need to embrace our whole community,” says Kelly Rettig, Cordley kindergarten teacher. “This conversation about Halloween started five years ago. We recognized that we’ve had a lot of growth and change in our community, and we have become more of a global community here at Cordley.” Cordley’s Community Service-Learning committee collaborated with the PTA board and Cordley staff to create an alternative reason to celebrate. The school conducted a food drive in October to help fill the food pantry at Cornerstone Baptist Church, 802

W. 22nd Terrace, which provides BackSnacks, a backpack of food for low-income children to take home Friday afternoons for the weekend. Classrooms had parties Oct. 18 to celebrate the food drive’s success and also embrace the fall season with pumpkins and apples. Woodlawn School, 508 Elm St., also chooses not to have Halloween classroom parties. Instead, the school’s PTO put on its third annual Family Fun Fall Festival the evening of Oct. 18 for students and their families to gather and celebrate the season. Many children chose to wear

costumes to the party, but the activities, such as a pumpkin rolling and pie decorating, were not Halloween-specific. Classrooms had fall parties during the school day Oct. 19. “I’ve been here seven years, and we haven’t done Halloween. That way, we’re not excluding kids who don’t participate,” says Jeanne Fridell, Woodlawn principal. Raintree Montessori has longtime traditions that have been adapted from Halloween customs to fit all students. On Oct. 31, students from preschool through elementary

The elementary school students dress in costume as someone from history or literature as a culmination of a research project, and then their fellow students try to guess who they are dressed as. They also do a parade to the preschool classrooms and tell the younger students about their characters. “The older the students get, usually the more obscure the costumes become. You never know who might walk

Quail Run School has put on a traditional Halloween costume parade since it opened in 1988. “After lunch on the 31st, all of our students who want to will dress up and go outside,” principal Debbie Tann says. “We always have a huge crowd; in the past we’ve had up to 300 parents, and some of the parents who come also dress up. Then, the classes have a Halloween party with snacks and some type of activity.” Tann says little has changed over time with the Halloween celebration, except for the snacks. “We have implemented a wellness program in the school, so now children need mostly healthy food with just a little fun food,” Tann says. Corpus Christi Catholic School holds classroom parties on Halloween for all students, and preschoolers and kindergartners do a parade through the school in their costumes. Older students are allowed to “dress down” and not wear their school uniforms that day. “It is always about the kids, and kids love Halloween. We are embracing the innocence of what the holiday is, while keeping it reasonable and sensible,” says Corpus Christi principal Mary Mattern. “We make sure they know it’s a celebration.” Even some of the smallest Lawrence children get in on the Halloween festivities. Hilltop Child Development Center at Kansas University spreads the Halloween spirit to other buildings on campus, taking costumed children, ages 1 to 5, trick-or-treating on Halloween morning in adjacent buildings, such as the law school and athletics facilities. “Quite a few of the teachers dress up, as well,” says Gina Byrd-Stadler, Hilltop’s interim director. “The kids love it when they see that their teacher is dressed up.”

Halloween’s goriest costumes go extra-small BY MELISSA RAYWORTH, ASSOCIATED PRESS


repare yourself this Halloween for a procession of pint-sized trick-ortreaters like none you’ve encountered before. If the companies that gamble on offering the right mix of costumes are correct, visitors to your doorstep will include a grisly array of waist-high killer clowns brandishing blood-soaked machetes, deranged convicts and zombie ninjas armed with knives. Add to that the full roster of fictional killers who gave people nightmares during the ‘80s and ‘90s — Freddy Krueger, Michael Myers, Jason Voorhees from “Friday the 13th” and Chucky, the murderous doll from “Child’s Play” — now available in sizes that can fit a 5-year-old. These costumes make last year’s popular “Scream” mask filled with fake blood seem almost tame. Earlier this month, Amber Boettcher brought her 6-year-old daughter Addi to a Halloween store near their home in southeastern Minnesota. They were looking for pompoms to add to Addi’s homemade costume. But their shopping trip ended abruptly when Addi saw the array of gory outfits on sale for kids. “She freaked out,” Boettcher says. “The store was so gross and scary that we left.” Gory Halloween costumes aren’t new, of course. And Halloween decorations have gotten just as intense: Spirit Halloween offers a disturbingly realistic mechanical version of the possessed girl from “The Exorcist” for your front lawn, and PaperMart offers plastic severed hands splattered with fake blood packaged as though they’ve been wrapped at a butcher shop, perfect for decorating the buffet table at a Halloween party. But in a year when Abraham Lincoln was depicted as a vampire hunter and zombies are everywhere, gory costumes that were once reserved for preteens and teens are now available in ever-smaller sizes. One example among many: The national chain Party City’s “Boys Skinned Alive” costume will fit, according the company’s website, “most children over 4.” Even costumes that were once benign now have violent twists: The sweet, simple “sock mon-

Even costumes that were once benign now have violent twists: The sweet, simple “sock monkey” is now a bloody zombie sock monkey with razor-sharp teeth, sold in sizes small enough for kindergartners. key” is now a bloody zombie sock monkey with razor-sharp teeth, sold in sizes small enough for kindergartners. “For the last couple of years, darker is where it’s been at,” says Melissa Sprich, vice president of Halloween merchandising for Party City. For babies and toddlers, Sprich says “darker” may mean dressing as a devil this year, rather than a cheerful dinosaur. But for all other ages, many parents are seeking vampires, zombies and “the Freddies, Jasons and Chuckys” even for kids too young to see those characters on screen. The companies that license these characters’ images determine how small the costumes can run, with some drawing the line for horror characters at sizes 6-8 or 10-12. But while “6-8” technically refers to ages 6-8, many boys wear that size at age 5. David J. Skal, who has chronicled America’s fascination with horror since the 1990s in numerous books, including “The Monster Show,” says he’s surprised at the level of “monster-ization of children” we’re seeing this year. He points out that for centuries, frightening masks and “scary stories have been

used to pass on a kind of coming-of-age message to children that the world is not always a safe and welcoming place.” Perhaps, he says, this year parents are especially preoccupied with just how unwelcoming the world seems. Researching his history of Halloween, “Death Makes a Holiday,” Skal spoke with people who grew up during the Great Depression, and remembered dressing up as what they called “hobos and bums.” At that time, he says, “people were very concerned that the whole social fabric was coming apart. The idea of the rise of the unwashed masses kind of has a parallel with our fascination with zombies.” Chris Alexander, editor-in-chief of the long-running horror magazine Fangoria, says in the 1930s, characters we now see as relatively harmless like Frankenstein’s monster or Count Dracula were unsettling moviegoers just like Chucky or Michael Myers. But, Alexander points out, those characters were effectively defanged through decades of adaptation before they became dress-up fodder for preschoolers. Frankenstein’s monster morphed into bumbling Herman Munster

and Dracula eventually translated into Count von Count on “Sesame Street.” No such softening has happened with characters like child-killer Freddy Krueger: They are realistically depicted in latex and fabric, then wrapped around little trick-or-treaters. Even Alexander, who edits a horror magazine and makes low-budget horror films, says the current crop of costumes is too gory for him to consider buying for his own 5-year-old. “My office is a nightmare come to life,” he says, “but I would never dress my child up as Freddy Krueger or Jason. ... I’m quite shocked when I see it.” Party City’s Sprich notes that the popularity of retro horror characters like Chucky is part of a larger wave of nostalgia for the era when today’s parents were kids. The “Ghostbusters” and video game characters Mario and Luigi are also hot right now. Today’s parents are reveling in that nostalgia, and their children are likely to feel empowered when older kids and adults are shocked or impressed by the edginess of their costumes, says Cynthia Edwards, professor of child psychology at Meredith College in Raleigh, N.C. “Part of the thrill of Halloween for little kids is that you put on a costume and you become the thing. If you dress up as a fairy princess or a pilot, you are a fairy princess or a pilot for a couple of hours. But that’s when you get to the question, If you dress up as a really horrible thing, what is the kids’ perception of that?” A single day spent surrounded by horror imagery probably won’t have lasting impact on kids, Edwards says. But some children will be unsettled by dressing up in realistically gory costumes or by seeing classmates dressed that way. What can be especially confusing for kids, according to Fangoria’s Alexander, is that “parents, by and large, will say ‘no’ to horror and say ‘no’ to gore for kids all year long. But once a year they have no qualms about taking them to stores with body parts everywhere and animatronic dead things coming at them” to buy disturbing costumes. Then, he says, without offering kids any way to put all of this disturbing imagery and play-acting into context, “as soon as Oct. 31 is over, horror is buried again.”

Rent the Runway taps its users as models BY SAMANTHA CRITCHELL, how to adapt one dress to many occasions, ASSOCIATED PRESS she adds.


YORK — A reality check is coming to Rent the Runway, the online company that allows consumers to borrow — for a fee — designer clothes and accessories. It has unveiled a social-shopping platform with 12,000 customer photos to see how styles hang on different shapes. “You haven’t seen this diversity of models anywhere else,” says Jennifer Hyman, CEO and co-founder. Accessibility drives Rent the Runway, and that doesn’t only mean cost, she says. The site offers dresses and accessories by a revolving roster of 160 designers, often attracting renters looking for special-occasion looks or the chance to wear a top-tier label without a four-digit investment. The Our Runway program also aims to open options of silhouette and style to women who might not think there’s a strapless dress or full poufy skirt out there for them but then finds it with the guidance of her peers, Hyman explains. She also might learn a few styling tips, new ideas for handbags and jewelry, and EW

Over the past year, the company has been collecting input from users and found that — without any incentive — more than 35 percent of users chose to post photos and reviews of the items they rented. Hyman says she was surprised at the level of detail that came with these reviews, including a majority listing height, weight, body type and bust size. “What it’s all about is, ‘Will it look good on me?’ and ‘Will I feel comfortable?’ They like to see how they will look in a dress before they rent it from someone who looks like them, and they’re willing to pay it forward.” The target audience of the site is 15-45. “These are the same women who live their lives on Facebook and Instagram, and are creating an image for themselves,” Hyman says. She reports that rental rates double when a user interacted with a customer photo versus a model. Hyman had posted 47 photos of herself ahead of the launch. “I’ll tell you what dress fit me and which one was tight in the hips.”

Lawrence LAUNDRY


Style isn’t trends; it’s personality, and these women had it down. These ladies seemed to have such confidence in who they are as people and their preferred art form of fashion. ALI EDWARDS



couple of weeks ago, I walked into a room filled with some of the most stylish women I’ve ever encountered. I meandered around the Lawrence Arts Center, 940 New Hampshire, looking for the room in which I would talk to a class of middle school girls about writing Lawrence Laundry and Style Scout for the Lawrence JournalWorld. I pressed my face up against the small square window in the door of room 212, and Hannah Hurst, the teacher of Style Rookies, motioned for me to come in. The 10 or so middle-school-aged girls, all extremely well dressed, turned to greet me. Most of the girls in Style Rookies are interested in pursuing fashion (writing, designing, consulting, etc.) as a career, and it became readily apparent that I would be talking to girls who probably knew more about fashion than I did. Very quickly, I realized that though I had come to tell them about my style-writing job and, more broadly, about my personal experience with fashion and style, I would be learning far more from them. I answered questions about my favorite type of shoe (boots), my favorite store (too many to list) and my favorite Style Scout (either Chuck “Colonel” Benedict or Matthew Paige), but the topics these ladies brought up in conversation have far more lasting significance. My three takeaways?

DIY is alive and well.

Style begins and ends with attitude.

A STUDENT IN THE STYLE ROOKIES CLASS at Lawrence Arts Center, 940 New Hampshire, sews an item for her wardrobe. OK, so maybe these girls didn’t teach me about the virtues of “do it yourself,” but they confirmed something that I had been hoping for: Creativity and imagination is still appealing and fulfilling for young folks. While we are in the midst of the Pinterest phenomenon, it’s still wonderful to know that young women are thinking of and creating their own Halloween costumes, sewing and experimenting with their own clothes, and impressively manipulating broken pairs of wedge heels into adorable strappy sandals.

Most of the girls in this class were wearing at least one trending piece of clothing (i.e. colored jeans, neon shirt, floral pattern, vintage dress), but each of them styled their clothes in such perfect personality-fitting ways. Style isn’t trends; it’s personality, and these women had it down. These ladies seemed to have such confidence in who they are as people and their preferred art form of fashion. They are so confident, in fact, that they had some suggestions about my next Style Scout. One of the girls asked, “Have you ever style scouted a younger woman, like our age?” I answered that I hadn’t, but I suppose I should. One of them replied, giggling, “Well, I’m here every day.”

If you’re going to pursue something, pursue it wholeheartedly. These ladies live and breathe the art of style. Some of them are at the arts center every day engaging in their passion. As young women, they’re striving to live out their desires as successful artists. They’re not sitting back, waiting for a fashion career to fall into their laps. They’re learning about it, taking classes on it and practicing it every day. They’re pursuing their passion wholeheartedly. This, to me, was the greatest takeaway from my time spent with the Style Rookies. They’re having fun with their hobby, and truly chasing their dreams. You go, girls. — Ali Edwards can be reached at

Justifying my love for Madonna

River City Jules


ike so many others this week, I am dressing up with my friends and heading out for some fun. But my road to Tuesday’s Madonna concert stretches much longer than 45 minutes on I-70. As an oldest child and, by nature, rather naïve, I started junior high in 1984 just past the borderline of childhood. Not only like a virgin, but actually a virgin in this new and foreign teen world, I soon found a group of girlfriends with whom I would begin my adolescent journey, guided, of course, by the trio of Molly Ringwald, the Huxtables and Madonna. While my parents cringed at that last one, my friends and I shared the same girly passion for lace gloves, bangle bracelets and slow-dancing (or, in my case, hoping to slow-dance) with cute boys to “Crazy for You.” Before there was karaoke, there were 10 girls from Queen of the Holy Rosary Catholic School gathered for sleepovers every weekend, belting out “Material Girl” into our hairbrush/microphones. While we all slowly lost touch in high school and college, Madonna did not lose us. And, as my circle of friends evolved over the decades, Madonna was always part of my gang. Sometimes she was the one in the group we all envied; sometimes she was the one we all called a whore. Sometimes she was the one who broke up with her boyfriend or had a baby or married Sean Penn. Sometimes she was the one who showed us a new dance move or got us into yoga or made us think that if she could write a children’s book, we all could. It would not matter where I lived or who my friends were, Madonna was the

lucky star that bound us. She got us into the groove, she told us to express ourselves, and she proved it is possible to star in “Shanghai Surprise” one decade and still win a Golden Globe the next. And, last spring, she announced she was coming to Kansas City. My gaggle of girlfriends jumped at the chance to “Vogue” out with Madonna, counting on me to buy the five of us tickets at 10 sharp the morning the pre-sale tickets were released. Unfortunately, Ticketmaster only allowed four to be sold at a time. Even more unfortunately, I, like Madonna, am far better at faking a bad British accent than I am managing other areas of my life (in this case, online ticket-ordering), so I am sitting by myself, two rows down from my four friends. But don’t cry for me, Lawrence, Kansas. The truth is I am not worried. While the rest of Section 109’s ninth row might point and wonder, “Who’s that Girl?”, if there is one thing Madonna taught me, it is that music makes the people come together. And I cannot wait. — Julie Dunlap can be reached at

With a little patience and a couple of tools, you can create a great seal using an aluminum and vinyl screw-on door set.

Seal the weather outside


hen it comes to sealing the gaps around an exterior door, there are many weather strip options to choose from. With a little patience and a couple of tools, you can create a great seal using an aluminum and vinyl screw-on door set. Once installed, the tubular gasket attached to the metal mounting strip of the door set will seal out air, insects and precipitation. Step 1: Clean the door jamb and exterior face of the door. Remove any existing loose or damaged weather stripping. Step 2: With the door closed, measure the width of the exterior door jamb that runs along the top of the door. Step 3: Use a hacksaw to cut the shorter piece of the door set to match the width of the door jamb. Cut the vinyl portion of the door set with scissors before cutting the metal portion with the hacksaw. Step 4: Hold the cut-to-size door set piece on the underside of the door jamb along the top of the door. Position the weather stripping so the vinyl bulb presses firmly against the door but not so tightly that it impedes the operation of the door. Step 5: Mark the screw hole positions with a pencil, remove the door set piece

and drill pilot holes for each of the screws. Step 6: Once the pilot holes have been drilled, reposition the top piece of the door set and screw it into place. Step 7: Open and shut the door a few times to assure the position of the top door set piece is correct. The door should shut easily, and the vinyl bulb of the door set should be compressed along the full width of the door. Step 8: Make any necessary adjustments to the top piece of the door set, before installing the two side pieces. Step 9: Following the same procedure as before, measure the door jamb height and cut the side pieces to the appropriate length. A straight cut with a hack saw is the most efficient method of installation. Resist the urge to use a coping saw. Step 10: Mark and drill pilot holes before screwing the side pieces into place. If installed correctly, the vinyl bulb of the weather strip should compress firmly along the edges of the door while still allowing the door to open and shut properly. — Linda Cottin can be reached at

Ensure a fun and safe Halloween for your pet FAMILY FEATURES


alloween isn’t just for kids. Pets are joining the festivities by dressing up in fabulous costumes. But in addition to picking out a costume, pet parents should keep their pet’s safety in mind as well. Here are some safety tips and costume ideas to help ensure you and your pet have a safe and fun holiday.

Keep them happy. “Before having pets join in the Halloween fun, it’s important to assess whether your

pet will be comfortable participating, or if the festivities will cause undue stress,” says Dr. Simon Starkey, Pet Care Expert at PetSmart. “If you have a young or senior pet, or one that is shy around others, it’s better to give them a quiet space away from all the activity where they’ll feel more comfortable.”

Make sure treats are pet-friendly. With so many Halloween treats about the home, you want to make sure your dog doesn’t accidentally consume something that could be harmful. Chocolate is particularly tempting for pets, but it can also

make them seriously ill.

Keep them safe. If you plan to take your dog around the neighborhood in the evening, make sure they’re properly outfitted. Reflective leashes, collars and ID tags with flashing lights are essential accessories for any pet Halloween costume.

Pick the right costume. “Choosing a costume for your pet is like choosing a costume for yourself — you want something that reflects your or your pet’s personality,” says author and entertainment expert Kimberly Schlegel Whitman.
