Questions and answers abound on trash issue ——

Solid Waste Task Force to make recommendations in next few months By Chad Lawhorn

You thought your trash day was a chore. Lawrence city commissioners are inching closer to their own trash day as a city-appointed task force moves toward delivering recommendations on how to change the city’s trash and recycling services. The Solid Waste Task Force isn’t expected to deliver a set of recommendations to city commissioners until sometime near Christmas, but that hasn’t stopped Lawrence residents from asking a host of nervous questions about how Mayor Aron the most constant of weekly Cromwell chairs tasks — taking out the trash the Solid Waste — may change. Here’s a look at some of Task Force. the questions and what’s known at this point, but there is a big caveat: None of this is a done deal. The city’s Solid Waste Task Force has indicated several ideas that it supports, but it hasn’t yet produced even a draft report. When it does, it won’t be more than a recommendation. City commissioners will have the final authority of authorizing any changes to the city’s trash or recycling systems. With that, here are some questions: Nick Krug/Journal-World Photo

IT HAS BEEN JUST OVER A YEAR since Lawrence resident Susan Hamlet was pulled from the Kansas River spillway by emergency crews after an attempted suicide. Hamlet says news of her pending divorce and the temporary loss of custody of her children had pushed her beyond her limits. After seeking help, Hamlet got her life on the path to recovery and encourages others to do the same.

Resident shares story of crisis and recovery By Karrey Britt

Just over a year ago, Susan Hamlet jumped into the water just above the Kansas River dam in North Lawrence and was swept away. She ended up under the waterfall, and a rescue worker was able to talk her into grabbing his helping hand.

“After it was over, I remember thanking God. I wasn’t angry for surviving. I was very thankful,” the Lawrence resident said. During an hourlong interview, Hamlet, 44, sat at her dining room table and described the events leading up to her suicide attempt on Sept. 24, 2010, as well as her road to recovery.

In spring 2010, Hamlet was married and a stay-at-home mother of two girls, ages 9 and 5. Her husband of six years was working in Iraq as a contractor. She was looking forward to his return home. “I was very much in love,” she said. “I thought we were very, very happy.” In May 2010, she was served divorce papers, and that’s when her life, she felt, began to spiral out of control.

“There was lots of crying, lots of tears … things that the kids shouldn’t have seen. Mommy started losing it. I started having a nervous breakdown,” she said. As a result, she lost custody of the children in June to her husband’s parents. Then she had to move out of their home in August. “I had no money. I didn’t know where I was going to go, what I was going to do, how I Please see SUICIDE, page 2A

Lawrence lags in updating equipment By Chad Lawhorn

Task force working in secret on tax proposal By Scott Rothschild

TOPEKA — There is a task force in state government that is going to deliver to Gov. Sam Brownback a tax proposal that could affect every Kansan. But who those task force members are, what their backgrounds are and what stake they have in the outcome have been mostly hidden from the public. There have been no public meetings. One thing is known: Arthur Laffer, one of the architects of President Ronald Reagan’s supply-side economics, “is providing his expertise throughout the process and he will be in the state

helping to present the tax plan once it is finalized,” according to Jeannine Koranda, a spokeswoman for the Kansas Department of Revenue. Laffer is being Brownback paid $75,000 for his consulting services, she said. Kansas Department of Revenue Secretary Nick Jordan is heading the effort to give recommendations to Brownback by the end of the year. Jordan has said a task force is near completion of its task. When Jordan’s office was asked

by the Journal-World to provide names of those serving on the task force and other details, the office provided little information. “People are being pulled into the discussion as their expertise is needed,” Koranda said. “More people are being consulted as time goes on; just about everywhere the secretary goes, people are providing ideas.” Koranda said that senior Revenue Department staff members Richard Cram, head of policy and research, and Steve Stotts, director of taxation, have been consulted. “These consultations have also included leaders of the House and Senate tax committees, vari-

ous state agency heads, economists and business owners. The discussions have not been limited to a set group of people nor have they been scheduled on a regular basis. This is not an appointed group,” she said. But only Republican leaders of the House and Senate tax committees have been consulted so far, she said. Brownback and Jordan are Republicans. Koranda said Democrats will be talked with before a bill is introduced. She declined to identify any of the business owners lending their advice.

public safety, now is not the time to cut taxes. “I hope when Gov. Brownback looks at Kansas he sees our people, not just dollar signs,” said Kansas Democratic Party Chairwoman Joan Wagnon. “I have serious questions about what this tentative tax reduction plan will mean for everyday Kansans,” she said. “Will parents continue to see increased class sizes in their kids’ schools? Will abused and neglected children still be left without immediate access to help? Will seniors have to go without Meals on Wheels?”


from Shawnee, has played his hand close to the vest on which taxes will be reduced. But Brownback is eager to cut taxes, subscribing to Laffer’s theory that reduced taxes produce more business growth, which eventually will result in more revenue to take care of government needs. He has stated several times he wants to decrease the state income tax. But others say that after years of budget cuts to schools, social services and


from backhoes to lawn mowers to pickup trucks. “There are a lot of things that management and the commission have to pay attention to, and this is one issue that likely should be on the list,” Eglinski said. But Eglinski’s analysis also found the city is doing better when it comes to keeping up with its aging infrastructure, such as roads, bridges and city buildings. If the city had to pick between infrastructure and equipment, Eglinski said, there are good reasons why the city would want to focus on infrastructure. “You would rather have old pickup trucks than old bridges,” Eglinski said. “They’re still easier to replace.” City Manager David Corliss said he would like to see the city improve in both areas. In his written response that is filed with the report, he said it is “clearly important to highlight the increasing gap in attending to our equipment needs.” He said a new infrastructure sales tax approved by voters in 2008 will help the city replace aging fire and medical equip-


was going to get the children back,” she said. “I felt like I had no one, like I had nothing. I was in so much pain that I didn’t want to feel the pain anymore.” On the afternoon of Sept. 24, she left her mobile home in North Lawrence and meant to walk across the bridge that connects North Lawrence to downtown, but instead went down to the river. She said it was like an out-of-body experience. “I wasn’t planning on jumping in the river, but once I got there I thought that was the thing to do,” she said. “I was seeing what I was doing but I wasn’t rationalizing. The feeling is hard to explain.” She jumped into the water and was swept away by the current. She remembers fighting for air and thinking, “Oh my God, Susan, you are going to die.” When she landed, she stood on a ledge behind the waterfall, then she began to walk across the ledge but saw a snake and headed back. She believes God sent that snake there for a reason: to save her life. “I was out of my mind crazy,” she said. Shivering and cold, she started to pray. That’s when she remembers a kind, gentle voice and a hand reaching out to help her. “He had to coax me out and he said some very kinds words,” she said. “I don’t know who he was and I wish there was some way that I could thank him.” !"!"!

She was taken to Lawrence Memorial Hospital, where she was treated for water in her lungs and placed on suicide watch. “By the grace of God, the only injury I had was a little, tiny cut on my wrist,” she said. She said she was transferred to Osawatomie State Hospital, where she was put in the suicide ward for 10 days. “It was terrifying,” she said. But it was there where she came to realize what had happened and got the help that she needed. Hamlet said she was widowed in 2000 when her first husband was murdered in Kansas City. “So, lots of trauma in my life,” she said. “I just selfmedicated.” When she left the state hospital, she said she found help from people she least expected, including an old

ment and outdated public safety radios. Much of that sales tax is for road improvements. Corliss said he thinks the city can do more in that area, too. Eglinski’s report noted that the city’s debt per capita reached its lowest levels of the last seven years — although the numbers don’t yet include $18 million in new debt the city will issue to expand the Lawrence Public Library. Corliss, though, said he doesn’t think the falling debt levels are necessarily a good sign. “We are investing less in our community infrastructure through debt issuances than we did in the 1990s and 2000s,” Corliss wrote. “I do not believe this is a good trend, even if it helps with our financial indicators.” Other findings from the report include: ! Governmental revenues soared in 2010, up about 18 percent, but much of that increase was attributed to the city receiving $8.5 million in trust fund money to clean up the former Farmland Industries site in east Lawrence. Eglinski, though, noted tax collections also increased from $48.9 million in 2009 to $51.8 million in 2010 — an increase of 5.9 percent. Part of that increase is related to the 2008 infrastructure sales tax because 2010 was the first full year’s worth of collection

for that tax. Governmental revenue per capita is at about $800 per person. ! Governmental expenses were up about 11 percent in 2010. Per capita expenditures are now at about $900 per person, up from a low of a little less than $800 per person in 2008. The city is able to have expenditures per person higher than revenues per person largely because the city has been spending down a large fund balance — or a savings account — that it has in its bond and interest fund. The city in 2010 used about half of the $16 million fund to pay off city debt rather than raise property taxes to pay for the debt. ! The city’s enterprise operations — city services that charge fees and are designed to function like a business — had mixed results in 2010. Eglinski looks at each fund and determines whether it is operating at a “profit” or a loss and — unlike the city’s budget — factors in any appreciation or depreciation in assets the department has experienced. For example, if a city department saw its revenues exceed its expenses by $100,000 but saw the value of its equipment depreciate by $200,000, it would be listed as losing $100,000 — with the idea that the city eventually will have to replace the value of that equipment.

SUICIDE PREVENTION Marcia Epstein, director of Headquarters Counseling Center in Lawrence, says you can make a difference when someone shows signs of feeling suicidal. Here’s how: • Listen and show you care. • Ask the question “Are you thinking about suicide?” • For teens, find a trusted adult to help you both. • For adults, find someone to be with the person and someone trained in suicide prevention to help. • Eliminate access to firearms, large amounts of medications and other dangers. • Never keep a secret about suicide. • Know that suicide is never someone else’s fault.

Where to get help: • Bert Nash’s 24-hour service — 785-843-9192. • National Suicide Prevention Life-Line — 800-273-8255. • Headquarters Counseling Center’s 24-hour service — 785841-2345. • Lawrence Memorial Hospital emergency room — 785-505-6100. • KU Child and Family Services Clinic — 785-864-4416. • DCCCA (outpatient drug and alcohol treatment center) — 785-830-8238. neighbor who gave her a place to live. For the past year, she has been receiving help from Bert Nash Community Mental Health Center and was assigned a case manager who is helping her get back on her feet with a job and home. She talks to her daughters every night and sees them as often as she can. She and her husband are working on a joint custody settlement. “I’m starting this new life and realizing that life is worth living,” she said. “I just want people to know that there are people out there that you least expect that do care and you just have to share how you are feeling.” !"!"!

Dr. Juliet Ne lson, a psychologist at Bert Nash, said Hamlet is not alone. She sees between eight and 12 people daily in the intensive outpatient program, and most are suicidal to some extent. She said depression affects all ages, races and incomes. She sees everyone from the homeless to the Kansas University professor. Nelson said people can become disconnected from their emotions and that’s when they feel like they are Here’s how the city’s enterprise funds fared under that analysis: 1. Water and sewer fund: $4 million profit, which was up from $3.2 million in 2009 but is down from $6.6 million in 2006. 2. Solid waste and trash collection: $799,881 profit, which is up from a $30,000 loss in 2009 and far better than a $746,000 loss in 2008. Eglinski said there had been a slight increase in revenue for trash service, but that most of the improvement had come from cost-cutting in the department. 3. Parking fund: $167,204 loss, which is an improvement from a $286,000 loss in 2009. Eglinski noted that most of the other cities that he reviewed, if they had a parking fund at all, had a profitable parking fund. Eglinski said the issue would need further study to determine why Lawrence’s parking fund is performing differently. 4. Stormwater fund: $1.2 million profit, which is an improvement from $1 million profit in 2010. 5. Golf fund: $217,717 loss, which is worse than a $96,595 loss in 2009.


Did you know? • About 35,000 Americans die by suicide each year, or one person every 15 minutes. • Males take their own lives at nearly four times the rate of females, but women attempt suicide about two to three times as often as men. • Among males, adults age 85 and older have the highest rate of suicide. • Among females, those in their 40s and 50s have the highest rate of suicide. • About 87 percent of people who complete suicide have a mental health disorder. 609 N.H.

watching themselves from above. She said it’s a scary state. For example, she said you can watch yourself cutting yourself but not feel it. “It’s dangerous for us to not be able to feel and so it’s very frightening to people when they get to the point,” she said. Nelson said people “absolutely” can recover from a mental illness, just like a physical one. She said a lot of different treatments work for different people, so if a treatment or therapist doesn’t work, try another. “Don’t give up,” she said. Nelson said people used to avoid the S-word, but now treatment focuses on talking about suicide instead of avoiding it. The same advice holds true for family and friends. “If someone goes into the hospital and has their gall bladder removed, we bring them a casserole. But when someone gets out because of a suicide attempt, nobody knows what to do,” Nelson said. “Well, you bring them a casserole.

School board to review annual goals

It’s that time of year 1 | LIBYA

Libyans claim gains in offensive Libyan revolutionary forces claimed to have captured parts of a sprawling convention center that loyalists of Moammar Gadhafi have used as their main base in the ousted leader’s hometown and were shelling the city to try to rout snipers from rooftops in their offensive aimed at crushing this key bastion of the old regime. The inability to take Sirte, the most important remaining stronghold of Gadhafi supporters, more than six weeks after the capital fell has stalled efforts by Libya’s new leaders to set a timeline for elections and move forward with a transition to democracy. Gadhafi supporters also hold the enclave of Bani Walid, where revolutionary forces have been stymied by a challenging terrain. But the transitional leadership has said it will declare liberation after Sirte’s capture because that will mean it holds all of the seaports and harbors in the oil-rich Mediterranean coastal country.

Computer virus hits drone program A computer virus that captures the strokes on a keyboard has infected networks used by pilots who control U.S. Air Force drones flown on the warfront, according to a published report. Wired magazine reported Friday that the spyware has resisted efforts to remove it from the computers in the cockpits at Creech Air Force Base in Nevada, where pilots remotely fly Predator and Reaper drones in places like Iraq and Afghanistan. The story said there are no confirmed reports that classified data was stolen and that the virus did not stop pilots from flying any of their missions. Network security specialists are uncertain if the virus was part of a directed attack or accidentally infected the networks, the story said. The Air Force said in a statement it doesn’t discuss threats to its computer networks because it can help hackers refine their tactics.

Interview: Bush still supports troops George W. Bush says that after eight years in the White House, he’s happy to be back home in Texas and out of the spotlight. But the former commander-in-chief tells The Associated Press there’s one aspect of his presidency he still misses: interaction with U.S. troops. And Bush, who sent them to wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, says that despite his desire to remain largely out of the public eye, he wants to make sure veterans and military members know they still have his support. “I was a little concerned that our veterans don’t think that I still respect them and care for them a lot,” Bush told the AP. He added later, “There’s nothing as courageous in my judgment as someone who had a leg blown off in combat overcoming the difficulties.”

21-year-old pronounced dead at ATV crash site Douglas County Sheriff’s deputies were called Saturday morning to the scene of a fatality accident in a field east of Baldwin City involving an all-terrain vehicle. The body of 21-year-old Preston Scheibler, of Lawrence, was found in a field northwest of the intersection of North 500 and East 2300 roads, according to a press release from the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office. Scheibler was pronounced dead at the scene, which deputies were led to by a Kansas Wildlife and Parks Conservation officer. Officials are investigating the cause of the accident, which they believe occurred late Friday or early Saturday. Scheibler’s body was discovered just after dawn.

A drive-thru clinic that offered free flu shots in Lawrence on Saturday provided not only a cost-saver for the community but also good practice for the Lawrence-Douglas County Health Department and its many partners in case of an actual flu outbreak. “If we had an emergency, we would really need the help of these different agencies,” said Lisa Horn, communications coordinator for the health department. Nurses from Lawrence Memorial Hospital, pharmacy students from Kansas University and other volunteers from other community groups pitched in to help with the clinic. It was the second

year for the event, but more marketing this year helped increase the turnout, Horn said. The health department had 500 free vaccines to give away Saturday at KU’s Park and Ride lot near the Shank Recreational Sports Complex. The allure of free vaccines, which typically cost about $30, attracted a number of people. A small number even came on bicycles. Some brought their families by the vanload. “One van came through with eight kids,” said Dan Partridge, Lawrence-Douglas County Health Department director. “At 30 bucks a pop, it was a pretty good deal for them.” Kelli Shaw, a fourth-year pharmacy student from Salina, said she appreciated the opportunity to get in some prac-

KU game day also ‘fantastic can day’ By Micki Chestnut Special to the Journal-World

Most Kansas University football fans look forward to the annual Kansas State University game for the chance to do battle with their in-state rivals. But Linda Klinker looks forward to this game for the chance to get her hands on the mountain of aluminum cans that fans will drain during their game-day revelries. For Klinker and her fellow Cans for the Community volunteers, each of those empties means a much-appreciated donation to a local charity.

Cans for the Community is a local nonprofit group that gathers aluminum cans, sells them to an area recycling center, then donates all the proceeds to agencies that are working to make Lawrence better. Since it was founded in 2005, the organization has collected and recycled nearly 6 million aluminum cans, raising $80,000, all of which has been donated to local nonprofit groups, one $1,000 gift at a time. The most recent recipients have been Headquarters Counseling Center and Tenants to Homeowners Inc. Klinker is expecting big things

Because her insurance won’t cover the shots, she decided to try out the free clinic. Walker said she was impressed with how smoothly the event operated.

Members of the Lawrence school board will consider setting a course — on paper — for their work during the coming year. Monday night, members are scheduled to review and approve their formal list of goals for the 2011-12 school year. The goals fall into three categories: !" Excellence, which calls for “raising the achievement of all students.” ! Equity, which advocates a push for “closing the achievement gap,” so students who are minorities, English-language learners, or working through special lesson plans move closer — in terms of assessment scores and other measures — to the performance of the overall student body. ! Engagement, a category designed to develop “a learning community of school, family and community partnerships,” including an emphasis on “communication, decision making and collaboration with the community.” District administrators would use the goals to guide their work during the year, and board members would use the list to track which administrators are responsible and what tasks are being pursued. Board members suggested goals during a meeting in August, then reviewed a preliminary list that has since been refined into the current document. Among other items on the agenda for Monday’s meeting, which begins at 7 p.m. at district headquarters, 110 McDonald Drive: ! Buy curriculum, for $1.9 million, from K12 Inc. for students in kindergarten through eighth grade at the Lawrence Virtual School. ! Buy Math Expressions materials, for $150,127, from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, for use for students in kindergarten through fifth grade. The board also will consider purchasing math intervention resources “for enrichment and remediation” for $45,488, from ETA/EA/ Learning Resources. ! Hire Chaney Inc., for $106,250, to replace 11 rooftop heating and cooling units for district headquarters. ! Hear two “overview” reports: one regarding board policies, and another involving professional development.

K.C. baby unlikely taken by stranger By Bill Draper Associated Press

KANSAS CITY, MO. (AP) — Decades of statistics on infant abductions in the U.S. suggest one of the least likely scenarios in last week’s disappearance of a Kansas City baby is that a stranger broke into her home and quietly snatched her from her crib. But the numbers also lead national experts to believe that if 10-month-old Lisa Irwin were taken by an intruder in the middle of the night, as her parents told investigators, she is likely still alive. Strangers who kidnap infants or young children, though rare, often do so because they want a child of their own, not because they intend to hurt or kill the child, said David Finkelhor, director of the Crimes Against Children Research Center at the University of New Hampshire. “The recovery rate for infants is very, very high. There is real

hope here,” added Ernie Allen, president of the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children in Arlington, Va. But the experts acknowledge that investigators often focus on close relatives when a baby goes missing, in part because statistics show that far more infants and young children are killed by a parent than a stranger. “Suspicion almost always falls heavily on the parents, especially when it’s young kids,” Finkelhor said. “Fifteen hundred parents kill their kids every year, and that’s heavily focused on the under 1 year of age category.” Allen said his organization has handled 278 infant abduction cases during his nearly three decades with the group. Only 13 cases involved a stranger coming into a home and taking a baby, and all but one of those children were recovered unharmed. Lisa’s parents, Jeremy Irwin and Deborah Bradley,

reported their daughter missing early Tuesday. Their relationship with investigators chilled late Thursday, when police said the parents had stopped cooperating. The couple quickly insisted they only needed a break from incessant police questioning. On Saturday, the parents were meeting again with detectives, Kansas City police spokesman Capt. Steve Young said. He declined to say what was discussed. A day earlier, Bradley told The Associated Press that police had accused her of being involved in her daughter’s disappearance, which she vehemently denies, and told her she failed a lie detector test. The couple told the AP police have treated them like suspects, and Bradley said detectives told her: “‘You did it. You did it. And we have nothing.’” Investigators said they have no solid leads or suspects despite an extensive search.

Occupy movement springs up locally By Andy Hyland


1 6 2pm

ONLINE: See the video at

The Occupy Wall Street populist protest movement that has sprung up across the nation made its way to Lawrence on Saturday, as more than 100 people gathered outside the U.S. Bank at Ninth and Massachusetts streets. The group chanted, held signs and sang songs that echoed themes. “THIS IS CLASS WAR,” read one sign. Last Friday, Lawrence resident Lori Learned Robinson and a small group of organizers were watching the Occupy Wall Street movement nationally, and were wondering if a local movement would begin. After nothing sprung up after a couple of days, she and her husband began a Facebook group that spread the word about the event. “It’s a coming together of everyone who has grievances against the way things are being done,” she said. “The main focus is on Wall Street, and how Wall Street gets bailed out, but the American people don’t.”

Every year, 3 million people worldwide take time to serve in their communities as part of this national day of service. “The Cans for the Community project is really fun and a bit unique for a day of service like this,” said Shannon Reid, volunteer coordinator for the United Way Roger Hill Volunteer Center. “Volunteers will not only be participating in

OCCUPY LAWRENCE demonstrators protest Saturday at the corner of Ninth and Massachusetts streets. The demonstration was a localized version of the Occupy Wall Street protest. The people who gathered were airing a wide variety of grievances, including large student-debt loads, wiretapping efforts and government spending on the military. Mel Smith, of Lawrence, held a sign that asked, “What does it all mean?” “What we’re here for is to help people realize that in order for the human race to survive, we have to be able to work together,” Smith said.

The organization collects cans every day at its 10 Can Houses — blue, metal recycling bins located throughout Lawrence. They also have collection bins in 90 area businesses. For more information on the program or for the locations of the Can Houses, visit

“Most of the people who tailgate look forward to getting our recycling bags,” said Klinker, who is now partnering with KU Environs to set up and collect recycling bins around Memorial Stadium. “But we need to get the word out that they need to make an extra effort to recycle. Some people aren’t aware that when they recycle with us, their cans really make a donation to a nonprofit.” — Micki Chestnut, associate director of the United Way Roger Hill Volunteer Center, can be reached at 865-5030.

ONE’S LOSS IS ANOTHER’S GAIN While falling values are not good indicators for sellers, they’re great news for buyers, lifting affordability to historically high levels. For example, to purchase a median priced home of $164,600 with 20% down and an interest rate of 5.1%, a buyer would need an annual income of just under $35,000. With the lowest interest rates we’ve seen in forty years, now is an opportune time to lock in a rate on a fixed loan. Rates are already showing signs of rising, and waiting too long could negatively affect your ability to secure such mortgage.

Around the corner, we might expect higher mortgage insurance premiums and closing costs, not to mention tougher and tougher terms for qualifications. With interest rates and loan fees still at very affordable levels, now is the time to make your move and secure your financial stability through home ownership. If you buy a $150,000 home today and it appreciates at a very conservative 3% annually, the home would be worth nearly $164,000 in three years.

In addition to rising interest rates, the Don’t let all the negative stories about fees on loan applications may also start real estate blind you to the many positive increasing. This is because lenders have factors for buyers in today’s market.

City to consider new zoning option BOTTOM LINE City commissioners will consider starting the process of creating a new industrial zoning category for the city.

BACKGROUND City commissioners will ask planning commissioners to review the city’s two main industrial zoning categories and determine if a third industrial zoning category can be created that is a hybrid of the two. The city’s IG zoning district currently allows the heaviest of industrial uses, which often creates concerns from neighbors who are near an area proposed for IG zoning. The

city’s IL zoning district allows lighter uses, but also allows for some types of retail development to occur. That has created concern from both neighbors and industrial developers in the past. City commissioners are asking for a review that would study if a new zoning district that permits a mix of uses more acceptable to both neighbors and industrial developers.

carts makes the job of sanitation workers easier and safer. That’s because all of the city’s trash trucks are equipped with devices that hydraulically lift and dump a cart’s contents. The lifts don’t work with standard trash cans. Those are physically lifted and dumped by sanitation workers. Cromwell said workers compensation claims related to lifting injuries are significant in the sanitation department. In 2010, workers compensation costs for the Solid Waste Department were $340,000, according to a city memo. What’s the other reason? You said that two had emerged. Oh yeah, I did. The second reason is carts would allow the city to start changing how it charges people for trash service. Currently, all residents pay the same amount for their trash service regardless of how much trash they take to the curb. That could change with carts. The task force hasn’t reached any conclusions on how to structure what is sometimes called a “variable rate pricing� or a “pay-as-you-throw� system. But discussions have indicated there could be several options. One scenario is the city might sell different-sized carts. A 65-gallon cart would cost one monthly rate, but if your trash needs require the use of a larger cart, a 95-gallon cart would cost a higher monthly rate. Or another system could be that if you can’t fit all of your trash in one cart, you could pay to have the right to place a certain number of trash bags out in addition to the cart. Some cities refer to this as a sticker system. The city gives you a certain number of stickers each year to place on trash bags. The stickers alert trash crews that the extra bags have been authorized by the city. Most systems allow additional stickers to be prepurchased from the city. What about curbside recycling? A majority of the task force, and especially the mayor, has expressed a strong interest in a system that would include mandatory curbside recycling. In other words, your monthly bill would include the cost of curbside recycling, whether you chose to use the service or not.

What did the 2008 recycling report say? The report estimated that 30,314 tons of material were recycled through the city and private sector efforts in 2007, which gave the city a 35 percent recycling rate. Yard waste — such as grass clippings, leaves and brush — accounted for 44 percent of all material recycled in Lawrence. That report was done well before Deffenbaugh Industries started offering weekly curbside recycling for about $5 per month. Hasn’t that service caused the rate to go up significantly? Again, the city doesn’t have the data to say one way or the other. But a spokesman with Deffenbaugh Industries did confirm that the company is providing service to about 4,200 Lawrence households. That’s about 15 percent of the city’s nearly 29,000 singlefamily residential accounts.

Business commitment A new city policy aims to make sure taxpayers get their money’s worth on public economic development incentives.


t seems that almost no economic development project gets done these days in Lawrence — or anywhere else — without some kind of direct public subsidy or tax incentive. For that reason, it’s good to see the city of Lawrence implementing a new policy that will help make sure local taxpayers are getting a fair return on their economic development investments. On Tuesday, city commissioners will consider approving a $25,000 “forgivable loan” and a 10-year, 65 percent tax abatement to help support the expansion of Grandstand Sportswear and Glassware. The company, which is owned by former Kansas University basketball player Chris Piper, is planning to spend about $4.8 million to purchase land and a building in the East Hills Business Park and add about 84 employees over the next 10 years, bringing their total employment to 126. If the company’s expansion goes as planned, it will be a good deal for the city, which will receive an estimated $1.40 in benefit for every $1 of incentives it provides. Unfortunately, for one reason or another, other companies that have benefited from city tax incentives in the past haven’t always been able to deliver on the additional jobs and other improvements that were projected in their applications for tax incentives. Until recently, the city was limited in how it could respond to those shortfalls. Even though the companies didn’t meet their goals, they usually received the full benefit of their tax abatements. Beginning with the Grandstand project, the city is requiring companies receiving public incentives to enter into a “performance agreement” that sets specific conditions for a company to receive its full tax abatement. The agreement sets requirements for capital investment, job creation, wages and health insurance benefits that a company must meet to receive all of its incentives. If the company’s overall performance in those four areas falls short, its incentives can be reduced; if it falls below 70 percent, the incentives can be withdrawn. In recognition of the fact that a company’s performance can be hindered by unforeseen circumstances, any decision to reduce its incentives can be appealed to the Lawrence City Commission. The performance agreement with Grandstand spells out its capital investment in East Hills and sets benchmarks for how much employment must grow each year for the next decade. It also requires those jobs to pay at least a “living wage” (calculated as 130 percent of the federal poverty threshold for a family of three) and pay at least 70 percent of the premiums for an employer-sponsored health insurance policy. All of these factors will make sure Grandstand is a good corporate resident of Lawrence, contributing quality jobs and building the city’s tax base. There’s no reason to think that Grandstand won’t be able to meet all of the goals outlined in its request for public incentives, but the same could have been said of a number of other companies whose performance goals looked good on their incentive applications but were never realized. Setting performance agreements is a sound business practice for the city. It’s only fair that companies asking local taxpayers to invest in a new venture be willing to make a significant commitment in return.

States should respect election system WASHINGTON — Republicans supposedly revere the Constitution, but in its birthplace, Pennsylvania, they are contemplating a subversion of the Framers’ institutional architecture. Their ploy — partisanship masquerading as altruism about making presidential elections more “democratic” — will weaken resistance to an even worse change being suggested. Pennsylvania’s Republicancontrolled Legislature may pass, and the Republican governor promises to sign, legislation ending the state’s practice — shared by 47 other states — of allocating all of its electoral votes to the candidate who wins the statewide popular vote. Pennsylvania would join Maine and Nebraska in allocating one vote to the winner in each congressional district, with the two remaining votes going to the statewide popular vote winner. The 2012 Republican candidate might lose the statewide vote but carry, say, nine of the 18 congressional districts, cutting Barack Obama’s yield to 11 electoral votes. But if the Republican candidate carries nine of Pennsylvania’s 18 districts, and the statewide vote — Obama’s Pennsylvania poll numbers are poor — Republicans will have cost themselves nine electoral votes, which would be condign punishment. Not since 1988 has a Republican carried Pennsylvania, a state described as Philadelphia in the east, Pittsburgh in the west and Alabama in between. Incongruous political cultures coexist in many states, so the tempta-

tion to which Pennsylvania Republicans may succumb could become a national contagion. Many big blue states (e.g., New York, Illinois, California) have many red enclaves: Democrats, particularly minorities and government employees, are disproportionately concentrated in urban areas. And many reliably red states (e.g. Texas, Georgia) have solidly blue congressional districts. In 1960, when Richard Nixon lost the popular vote to John Kennedy by 0.2 percent and the electoral vote 303-219, he won 227 districts and 26 states, so under Pennsylvania’s plan he would have won the presidency with 279 electoral votes. In 1976, Gerald Ford carried 215 districts and 27 states, Jimmy Carter carried 221 districts and 23 states and Washington, D.C. Under Pennsylvania’s plan (and assuming no “faithless” electors),

there would have been a 269-269 electoral vote tie and the House of Representatives would have picked the winner. Pennsylvania’s plan would encourage third parties to cherrypick particular districts, periodically producing “winners” with only national pluralities of electoral votes, leaving the House to pick presidents. The existing system handicaps third parties: In 1992, Ross Perot won 18.9 percent of the popular vote but no electoral votes. Pennsylvania’s proposal would raise the stakes of gerrymandering. And a swing state such as Colorado would often be neglected: Its nine electoral votes are a pot worth competing for, but under Pennsylvania’s plan, the split might usually be 5-4 or 6-3. Winner-take-all allocation of states’ electoral votes enhances presidential legitimacy by magnifying narrow popular vote margins. In 1960, John Kennedy won 49.7 percent of the popular vote but 56.4 percent of the electoral vote (303-219). In 2008, Barack Obama won just 52.9 percent of the popular vote but 67.8 percent of the electoral vote (365-173). Now eight states and the District of Columbia, with 132 electoral votes, are pursuing an even worse idea than Pennsylvania’s. They have agreed to a compact requiring their electoral votes to be cast for the national popular vote winner, even if he loses their popular vote contests. This compact would come into effect when the states agreeing to it have a decisive 270 votes.

Deep-blue California supports the compact. But if it had existed in 2004, the state’s electoral votes would have gone to George Bush even though 1.2 million more Californians favored John Kerry. Supporters of the compact say they favor direct popular election of presidents. But that exists — within each state. The Framers, not being simple, did not subordinate all values to simple majority rule. The electoral vote system shapes the character of presidential majorities, making it unlikely they will be geographically or ideologically narrow. The Framers wanted rule by certain kinds of majorities — ones suited to moderate, consensual governance of a heterogeneous, continental nation with myriad regional and other diversities. Such majorities do not materialize spontaneously. They are built by a two-party system’s candidates who are compelled to cater to entire states and to create coalitions of states. Today’s electoral vote system provides incentives for parties to alter the attributes that make them uncompetitive in important states. It shapes the nation’s regime and hence the national character. The Electoral College today functions differently than the Founders envisioned — they did not anticipate political parties — but it does buttress the values encouraged by the federalism the Framers favored, which Pennsylvanians, and others, should respect. — George Will is a columnist for Washington Post Writers Group.


Simple facts

Don’t dismiss public protests Five dollars? Really? To use your own money? Wow. Bank of America’s decision to impose that fee for debit card use did not precipitate the Occupy Wall Street protests. But it does seem to embody much of what has driven thousands of people to the streets, first in the New York financial center and now in Boston, Los Angeles and other cities across the nation. The fee carried an odor of pecuniary pettiness not dispelled by B of A’s claim that it was needed to recoup losses caused by a new federal regulation limiting the amount banks may charge retailers when you use a debit card. It felt like just another ding for consumers already dinged like the new car in a parking garage. You pay a fee now to check your bags. You pay a fee to have an unlisted number. You pay a fee to buy show tickets. In some towns, you pay a fee for a plastic bag to carry your purchases. You pay a fee to pay your bills using the “pay by phone” feature from certain service providers. So this decision to charge consumers for using their own money was the straw that put the camel in traction. It hacked people off. Occupy Wall Street, then, feels like the right thing at the right time, like the harbinger of a new Zeitgeist — though not everyone is convinced. Some observers dismiss the protests as “street theater,” an easy charge, given the loopy ec-

centrics who have been attracted to the movement like iron shavings to electromagnets. On the other hand, much of the anti-war movement, the women’s movement and the civil rights movement (rest in peace, Fred Shuttlesworth) was also street theater and those seem to have turned out fairly well. The protesters have also been criticized for a lack of focus. The proudly leaderless movement, organized (if that is the word) on social media, has yet to articulate its demands, even as individual demonstrators have advocated causes as disparate as saving the environment and ending the drug war. They don’t seem to get that when you try to say everything, you end up saying nothing. But one suspects (or maybe

just hopes) it would be a mistake to write off these events too quickly. “There comes a time,” Martin Luther King once said, “when people get tired.” When you spend evenings with pad and pen, trying to get the numbers on one side of the paper to line up with those on the other, when you spend nights not sleeping, wondering how long your job will last, when you spend days paying more money for less service, when it begins to seem as if the government that should be working for you is a wholly owned subsidiary of American business, when billions of dollars of your taxes goes to bail out money pigs who were too big to fail, when your fears are met with a tone deafness bordering on contempt (“Corporations are people,” says Mitt Romney; “If you don’t have a job and you’re not rich, blame yourself,” says Herman Cain; B of A has “a right to make a profit,” says CEO Brian Moynihan)...when that is your reality, you have good reason to be tired. Indeed, sick and. So, like Arab potentates in the spring, one dismisses this autumn of American discontent at one’s own peril. Granted, we don’t yet know what’s happening here, but one thing seems apparent: Something is. — Leonard Pitts Jr., winner of the 2004 Pulitzer Prize for commentary, is a columnist for the Miami Herald.

To the editor: George Will’s right-wing attack on Elizabeth Warren puts words in her mouth she doesn’t agree with (Journal-World, Oct. 6). She clearly supports individual initiative and enterprise as well as obligations for the successful to support government investments that enable success. She supports moderation of tax rates as well as taxation based on ability to pay. She supports individual autonomy and self-regulation as well as government’s duty to rein in the exploiters among us. She supports the creative complexity of private society as well as the ability of “we the people” working together to “form a more perfect union.” Warren is simply asserting facts of life from microeconomics 101: 1. Production of goods and services always depends on three kinds of inputs: capital, labor and government services. 2. Revenues from production must be shared as profits, wages and taxes, or else all three factors will cease to exist. 3. Hence, taxes are necessities of civilized life. Here is Will’s entire defense for misinterpreting Warren: “Everyone knows that all striving occurs in a social context, so all attainments are conditioned by their context,” and “Warren’s emphatic assertion of the unremarkable (is) that the individual depends on cooperative behavior of others.” Note Will’s exquisite delicacy: government is described, accurately enough but evasively, as “social context” and “cooperative behavior.” Note also that no major Republican candidate in the last 30 years has made any public reference to these facts. Will is claiming Warren is an extremist, because she states simple facts the radical right denies. David Burress, Lawrence

LAWRENCE ALMANAC Through 7 p.m. Saturday.

Expert: Conditions bad for monarchs KANSAS CITY, MO. — Migrating monarch butterflies are facing especially dire conditions this year as they pass through the Midwest on their yearly migration to northern Mexico. Chip Taylor, director of Lawrence-based Monarch Watch, said that in a normal year, butterflies visit a lot of flowers as they migrate south from their summer range, which stretches from New England to the Dakotas. The Kansas University ecology and evolutionary biology professor said the monarchs survive the winter by living off the fats they consume on the way to the woods west of Mexico City. But this year, their path will take them through Texas, where much of the vegetation has dried up in the hottest summer on record. And many of the surviving plants were burned in wildfires that have blackened millions of acres. The Kansas City Star reported that Taylor described it as “a thousand miles of hell — a nearly flowerless/ nectarless and waterless expanse.”

KANSAS CORNERBACK GREG BROWN STRETCHES OUT to force Oklahoma State receiver Hubert Anyiam (84) out of bounds after a long reception during the first quarter. The Cowboys routed the Jayhawks, 70-28, on Saturday in Stillwater, Okla.

Cowboys cruise to record rout By Matt Tait

STILLWATER, OKLA. — At this point, it almost has become a carnival-like atmosphere around Kansas University’s football team. Come one, come all, schedule the Jayhawks and set a school record. Find the magic combination and you may be able to rewrite your entire record book. That’s basically what Oklahoma State did Saturday at Boone Pickens Stadium, where the Cowboys drubbed the Jayhawks, 70-28, and tied or set multiple school records on offense. OSU’s 70 points, 10 touchdowns, most points in a half (56) and most points in a quarter (35 in the first) all were modern-era records. The Cowboys’ 494 yards through the air established a Kansas record for

passing yards allowed. And the total came from two different guys, marking the first time in OSU history that two quarterbacks had passed for 200 or more yards in the same game.

His replacement, Clint Chelf, closed out the victory with marks of 14-of-21 passing KANSAS HEAD COACH TURNER GILL watches for 206 yards and two TDs. “When you lose, you lose,” the bloodletting in the second quarter.

STILLWATER, OKLA. — Somewhere, two large men had to be experiencing unspoken, nonstop “told-you-so” moments Saturday as score updates crawled across the bottom of their TV screens or iPhones, or however they get their information. The men weren’t in attendance at T. Boone Pickens Stadium to see Oklahoma State’s merciful, 70-28 beating of Kansas University, but could have predicted it. One is Mark Mangino, forced out of his job as Kansas football coach by former athletic director Lew Perkins, just two years after a 12-1 Orange Bowl season.

Hypothetically, Self would take Big 12 over SEC By Gary Bedore

College basketball notebook. ... Kansas University basketball coach Bill Self was asked by 810 radio last week to pretend KU has been offered a spot in the Southeastern Conference — the league Missouri is considering joining. If such an offer were on the table, would KU’s ninth-year coach prefer to remain in the Big 12 or head to the rock-solid (at this time) SEC? “If we were offered to go to the SEC, based on the informa-

tion I have, I’d say based on the betterment of our university we definitely need to stay where we are at for our fans,” Self said. “It sounds sexy, I guess, to say we’d play these other schools (like Alabama, Auburn, LSU in football; Kentucky in basketball), but you are also going to play schools that, based on your location and theirs and past history, you’d be starting from scratch. “From my standpoint it’d be very difficult for our entire sports program, primarily in football — even though we were Orange Bowl champions just

four years ago and people forget about that and we will get back with Turner Gill the right man to do that — (because) your last five national champions come from the SEC and a sixth won it 11 years ago. That’s hard to be relevant. Missouri would be going into the SEC, Kansas (in the scenario presented by the radio station) would be going into the SEC not only competing against people that won championships, but national championships. We’ve had two in our league win national championships in the last 10 years with Oklahoma and Texas, but you don’t look to

the left and right and see it every Saturday. “Basketball-wise, it seems kind of sexy to me to be playing in the league where the two winningest programs of all time are both in it, Kansas and Kentucky, but over time I still don’t think that’s more important than playing Missouri and Kansas State,” added Self, a big fan of the Big 12 and its natural geographic rivalries. Self also said it’s important student-athletes not have to travel through different time zones to play conference games, especially with the NCAA in-

creasing its stance on improved academics. He noted that athletes in sports that do not charter to games would find it especially difficult not to miss significant amounts of class time. “Non revenue sports would miss three days of school to go play a competition,” Self said. !

From my standpoint it’d be very difficult for our entire sports program, primarily in football … ”

Smaller may be better: Self realizes the Big 12, which would have 10 teams if Missouri stays — KU basketball and TCU is added, could ex- coach Bill Self on a pand back to 12 teams. hypothetical move to the SEC Please see BASKETBALL, page 3B

Fiery Raiders owner Davis, 82, dies

Associated Press Sports Writer

OAKLAND, CALIF. — Al Davis was a rebel with a cause — “Just win, baby� he exhorted his beloved Oakland Raiders. And as the NFL well knows, he was also a rebel with a subpoena. Davis, who bucked league authority time and again and won three Super Bowl titles during his half-century in professional football, died Saturday. He was 82. The Hall of Famer died at his home in Oakland, the team said. The cause of death was not immediately disclosed. Davis was one of the most important figures in pro football history from his role in the development of the AFL, the merger with the NFL and the success he built on the field with the Raiders. “Al Davis’s passion for football and his influence on the game were extraordinary,� Commissioner Roger Goodell said. “He defined the Raiders and contributed to pro football at every level. The respect he commanded was evident in the way that people listened carefully every time he spoke. He is a true legend of the game whose impact and legacy will forever be part of the NFL.� Davis was also a litigious gadfly. That was most evident during the 1980s when he went to court — and won — for the right to move his team from Oakland to Los Angeles. Even after he moved the Raiders back to the Bay Area in 1995, he sued for $1.2 billion to establish that he still owned the rights to the L.A. market. Before that, though, he was a pivotal figure in hastening the merger between the AFL — where he served as commissioner — and the more established NFL. Davis was not initially in favor of a merger, but his aggressive pursuit of NFL players for his fledg-

I had a lot of respect for him, and he will be missed throughout the entire NFL.� But Davis was hardly an NFL company man.

Klinsmann, U.S. soccer get first win MIAMI (AP) — The United States won for the first time in four games under new coach Jurgen Klinsmann, beating Honduras 1-0 in an exhibition game Saturday night as Clint Dempsey scored in the 36th minute and goalkeeper Tim Howard made several key saves. Since Klinsmann replaced Bob Bradley after the CONCACAF Gold Cup, the Americans had tied Mexico and Costa Rica, and lost at Belgium. Eight days after acquiring a U.S. passport, Danny Williams started in a fiveman midfield and made his national team debut. The 22-year-old, the son of a U.S. serviceman and a German mother, joined Hoffenheim from Freiburg at the end of August and made his first start for Hoffenheim against Bayern Munich last weekend. On a rainy night in south Florida, a frog could be seen on the field. The game was the first of a pair for the U.S. during the international fixture period. The Americans host Ecuador on Tuesday night in Harrison, N.J. Dempsey put the U.S. ahead with his 23rd international goal. Brek Shea’s centering pass got past several players and touched Michael Orozco Fiscal before Dempsey gained control at the top of the penalty area, He moved the ball from his right foot to his left and shot high past goalkeeper Donis Escobar . Dempsey appeared to score on a header in the 84th minute, but the Americans were called for offside. With the U.S. using most top players other than Landon Donovan (strained right quadriceps) and midfielder Stuart Holden (knee surgery), the Americans seemed to better adapt to the system employed by Klinsmann, former coach of the German national team and Bayern Munich. In the 18th minute, Honduras’ Jerry Bengston broke in alone on Howard and let go a shot from the top of the box. Then in the 26th minute, Howard made a diving save of a straight-on, left-footed shot by Carlos Costly from well beyond the box. Howard also stopped a shot from Boniek Garcia, who fired from the left corner in the 52nd minute. Oguchi Onyewu, appearing for the first time under Klinsmann, squandered a scoring chance in the 66th minute when he volleyed a rebound over the crossbar. Escobar had made a save on Dempsey and the ball landed at Onyewu’s feet.

his hair — slicked back with a ‘50s duck-tail. Not in the way he talked — Brooklynese with Southern inflection. Not in the way he did business — on his own terms, always on his own terms. “His contributions and expertise were inspiring at every level — coach, general manager, owner and commissioner,� Dallas owner Jerry Jones said. “There was no element of the game of professional football for which Al did not enjoy a thorough and complete level of knowledge and passion.� Elected in 1992 to the Pro Football Hall of Fame, Davis was a trailblazer during his half-century in professional football. He hired the first black head coach of the modern era — Art Shell in 1988.

He hired the first Latino coach, Tom Flores; and the first woman CEO, Amy Trask. And he was infallibly loyal to his players and officials: to be a Raider was to be a Raider for life. People carrying flowers, flags, silver and black pompoms and even a football-shaped balloon stopped by to pay tribute on a warm, crystal clear fall day in the Bay Area. A tiny candle burned as well. “It’s like losing a grandfather,� said Rob Ybarra of Alameda, who left a bouquet of white flowers shortly after hearing the news of Davis’ passing. “He’s such an icon. The face of the Raiders. It’s hard to put into words how much he meant to everyone.�


Baird leads, Woods nine back at Frys Open SAN MARTIN, CALIF. — Briny Baird picked out his line and pulled off the shot, a driver that settled 15 feet from the cup and led to eagle on the 17th hole Saturday that staked him to a two-shot lead in the Open. Despite a bogey from the hazard on the final hole at CordeValle, Baird had a 7-under 64 to give himself a small cushion over Ernie Els and Paul Casey, two players who have a bit more experience winning. That’s not saying much — Baird has never won at all. He has gone 347 tournaments over 12 years without hoisting a trophy on the PGA Tour. This is only the third time he has been atop the leaderboard going into the final round, the last occasion at Disney seven years ago. Even as Els settled into disappointing pars on the easier holes down the stretch, and Casey kept in the hunt throughout most of the sunny day along the vineyards at CordeValle, there were plenty of other players lining up behind them. Tiger Woods wasn’t among them. Woods played steadily again for a 3-under 68, although that wasn’t enough on this day. It was the first time since his seasonWoods opening start at Torrey Pines that Woods posted consecutive rounds under 70. Even so, he was nine shots behind in a tie for 38th. “It’s getting better,� said Woods, playing for the first time in seven weeks. “I’m improving day by day, which is good. Obviously, tomorrow I need to improve a lot and make putts and post a really low one.� Baird was at 13-under 200, making him the outright 54-hole leader for the first time in his career. The Open concludes today at CordeValle.


Phils’ Howard tore Achilles PHILADELPHIA — The Philadelphia Phillies say first baseman Ryan Howard has a torn Achilles tendon and it’s uncertain if he will be ready for spring training next year. The power-hitting first baseman was injured on the final play of Philadelphia’s season-ending loss to St. Louis in Game 5 of the NL division series Friday night, falling as he ran out of the batter’s box on his grounder. The team said Saturday an MRI revealed a rupture of the left Achilles tendon and he will need surgery once the swelling goes down. Injuries of that type usually require at least six months of recuperation.

Busch aims for Chase leaders KANSAS CITY, KAN. — Kyle Busch hopes to make some positive memories at Kansas. Busch comes into this weekend eighth in the tightly bunched Chase standings, just 15 points behind co-leaders Kevin Harvick and Carl Edwards. But his title hopes have fizzled at Kansas Speedway before. In 2007, Busch was 10 points out of the Chase lead when he got tangled with Dale Earnhardt Jr., and last year he was third in the standings when David Reutimann put him in the wall. Busch will start alongside Chase rival Matt Kenseth in the second row Sunday. Greg Biffle will be on the pole with Edwards alongside him.

Small problem: South Africa didn’t qualify.

Free State CC triumphs By Corey Thibodeaux

Seniors Kain Anderson and Lynn Robinson have been the top Free State High runners all season, but some of their teammates closed the gap Saturday at the Haskell Indian Nations University Invitational. Both Anderson and Robinson finished second in their respective races, while Kamp Wiebe finished fourth in the boys 5K and Rosemary Newsome finished fifth in the girls 4K. Overall, the boys finished first in the meet out of six teams and the girls finished second. Wiebe, a senior, has bro-

Soucie takes 4th, paces KU men By Corey Thibodeaux

The team scores of the Haskell Indian Nations University Invite didn’t have Kansas University listed on Saturday, but that’s not a bad thing. The Jayhawks participated, but it was for some lessexperienced runners to have a chance to excel during a windy day on a flat course. “It’s nice for us to come out here and compete against guys like this,” freshman Brendan Soucie said. The men’s team had four runners, mostly middle-distance track runners, who all finished in the top 16. The purpose was so they could learn how to dictate a race from the front, assistant coach Michael Whittlesey said.


There’s perceived safety in numbers with so many teams getting poached from current conferences. In a perfect world, however, Self would stay at nine or 10 teams (with TCU and MU). “If we talk strictly basketball, the ACC was consistently getting six or seven in the NCAA out of their nine. They go to 12, now that gives the appearance of mediocrity, and now they are getting three to five,” Self said. “Look at the Big Eight. The Big Eight every year was getting five

“Rather than getting them on a plane and flying somewhere where the competition is really at the high level,” he said, “it’s a much better meet where they can see the front of the race and compete very well.” Soucie finished in fourth place in 26:21 after finishing in 12th place in the same meet last year. Sean Proehl finished sixth, Ben Wilson eighth and Colin Jokisch 16th. With the Big 12 Championships looming, this could be the last race of the season for some of those runners. The KU women only had two runners and each ran for different reasons. Devin Wiegers is getting more action because she is a senior, while red-shirt freshman Madison Moser is recovering from an injury and needs to

get back in the flow of competition. Wiegers finished second in the women’s 5K at 19:29, and Moser took fourth in 19:42. Both the men and the women didn’t place because they each had fewer than five runners. The Jayhawks will head to Madison, Wis., next week for the Wisconsin ADIDAS Invitational. Haskell, the host team, finished fourth out of 10 teams on the women’s side and seventh out of eight on the men’s side. Talisa Budder finished sixth overall on in the women’s 5K with a 19:46. Thomas Zunie finished with a 27:17 in the 8K for a 12th-place finish. Park (Mo.) University won the women’s meet, while Emporia State won the men’s event.

for the most part — one year we got six of eight. That’s 75 percent of your conference schools in the NCAA Tournament. We go to 12 and now we are doing cartwheels if we get five or six. In basketball, the teams that will play in the Big 12 if Missouri stays, seven of the nine have been to the Elite Eight in the last seven years. Seven different schools. Those schools are playing for national championships because if you are in the Elite Eight, that’s like being in a BCS bowl. You are in the game.”

No. 3 Oklahoma pummels UT DALLAS (AP) — Travis Lewis took the Golden Hat trophy and treated it like a real hat, holding it to his head as he trotted along the field, waving to the thousands of Oklahoma fans still in their seats. When he got to the section where friends and family were sitting, Lewis walked alongside the railing, holding out the trophy for folks to touch. So many people starred in this resounding victory that it only made sense for plenty of people to take part in the celebration. Landry Jones threw three touchdown passes, Dominique Whaley ran 64 yards for a touchdown and three defensive players found their way into the end zone, too, powering No. 3 Oklahoma to a 55-17 victory over No. 11 Texas on Saturday — the kind of whipping that could help the Sooners return to the top of the Associated Press poll. OU was No. 1 from the preseason until two weeks ago. The Sooners slipped to second after struggling at home against Missouri, then to third even after whipping lowly Ball State. Voters were more impressed by what they saw from SEC heavyweights LSU and Alabama. This performance, however, showed that Oklahoma is as good as folks originally thought. The Sooners (5-0, 2-0 Big 12) were precise on offense and swarming on defense. They scored the first four times they had the ball and cruised to leads of 24 at halftime and 45 midway through the fourth quarter. Texas’

OKLAHOMA RECEIVER RYAN BROYLES (85) EVADES Texas safety Blake Gideon in the first quarter. The Sooners routed the Longhorns, 55-17, on Saturday in Dallas. only touchdown on offense came in the final minutes, long after Oklahoma was on its way to the most lopsided win over its Red River rival since 2003, when it won by a series-record 52 points. “It was an excellent day,” OU coach Bob Stoops said. “To come down in here in this situation and win like that is really pretty special.” Jones was 31-of-50 for 367 yards and no turnovers. He improved to 2-0 against the Longhorns, and gave Oklahoma its third victory over Texas (4-1, 1-1 Big 12) in five years. Oklahoma’s most impressive feat was the three defensive touchdowns: an interception returned 55 yards from Demontre Hurst,

a sack-fumble returned 19 yards by David King and a vicious strip of a receiver taken 56 yards by Jamell Fleming. It was the first time in the school’s long, proud history that its defense has scored three times in one game, and only the second time a pair of fumbles were returned for TDs. Oklahoma matched another school record with eight sacks. “To me there is nothing more fun than a defensive touchdown when you’re on that side of it,” Stoops said. Here’s yet another nice bit of history for Sooners to savor: this win pushed Oklahoma ahead of Texas for the fourth-best winning percentage among major colleges. Only Michigan, Notre Dame

Baylor runs wild against Iowa State WACO, TEXAS (AP) — Robert Griffin ran for a season-high 107 yards, Terrance Ganaway rushed for a career-high 200 yards and three scores and No. 25 Baylor beat Iowa State, 49-26, on Saturday. Tevin Elliott returned a fumble 86 yards for a touchdown for the Bears (4-1, 1-1 Big 12), who bounced back from a 36-35 loss last weekend to No. 20 Kansas State. Two key booth reviews also aided the Bears, who ran for 391 yards and won their fourth in a row at home. Darius Reynolds had 178 yards receiving and two touchdowns, and Steele Jantz threw for three scores as Iowa State (3-2, 0-2) lost its second straight after a 3-0 start. Ganaway’s 3-yard TD run gave Baylor a 28-14 advantage in the third, but the Cyclones were deep in Bears territory after Jantz connected with Darius Reynolds on a 57-yard pass. Jantz was running to his left when Gary Mason Jr. stripped the Iowa State quarterback. Elliott scooped up the loose ball and ran into the end zone untouched to give Baylor a 35-14 lead with 6:18 left in the third. After a review of the play, it was ruled the ball popped out just before Jantz’s knee hit the ground. It was second key booth review that went in Baylor’s favor. In the second quarter, it was ruled on the field that Griffin lost a fumble. However, the play was overturned when replay officials said Griffin’s arm was in motion before he dropped the ball. Griffin threw a 15-yard touchdown pass to Kendall

KANSAS STATE DEFENSIVE TACKLE VAI LUTUI (92) IS CONGRATULATED BY TEAMMATE TRE WALKER after sacking Missouri quarterback James Franklin. The Wildcats held off the Tigers, 24-17, on Saturday in Manhattan.

K-State starts 5-0, upends Missouri MANHATTAN (AP) — Kansas State was the ranked team, the unbeaten team, the team coming off a confidencebuilding victory over thenNo. 15 Baylor. The Wildcats were playing host to an unranked opponent in Missouri that had lost two of its last three games. Tre Walker couldn’t understand why people were picking No. 20 Kansas State to lose. “We want respect,” the sophomore linebacker said. “Anytime someone doesn’t give you respect, that makes you want it even more, and you keep fighting for it until you get it.” That might start happening soon. Collin Klein had three touchdowns rushing Saturday, John Hubert added 126 yards on the ground and the Wildcats’ defense made enough plays to prevent a late comeback by the Tigers. The result was a 24-17 victory and K-State’s first 5-0 start since 2000. “That means an awful lot,” said coach Bill Snyder, who’s in his third year of rebuilding the program after a brief retirement. Snyder said the Wildcats were proud of their start, but he added that he was more proud of the way they took the victory in stride. “What I’m proud of is it’s a day in the life,” Snyder said. “Tomorrow is a new day.” James Franklin had 214 yards passing to lead the Tigers (2-3), who came into the game averaging more than 500 yards of total offense. They only managed 326 against the Wildcats, most of that coming on a pair of long touchdown drives in the fourth quarter. The first was a 79-yard drive that Henry Josey finished with a 2-yard run to get the Tigers within 24-10. The Wildcats promptly went three-and-out, and Franklin led Missouri on a 74-yard drive that he finished off with a plunge from a yard out with 5:02 left in the game. Missouri never got another chance with the ball. “We’re just not playing very good football right now,” coach Gary Pinkel said. “It starts with me, so I’m not doing a good enough job coaching these guys.” Kansas State’s defense set the tone on the first offensive play. Franklin dropped back to pass, looked over the middle and threw right to Wildcat defensive back Ty Zimmerman, who had deftly stepped in front of the intended receiver. The interception ended a stretch of 108 consecutive passes without throwing a pick for the sophomore quarterback. It took Kansas State six plays to punch it into the end zone. “The interception was big, but the most significant thing about that interception was

whether we were going to get seven or three out of it,” Snyder said. “Getting seven was substantial.” Franklin was sacked for a 13-yard loss on Missouri’s ensuing possession, and the Wildcats went 51 yards in 12 plays before Anthony Cantele’s field goal made it 10-0. By the time the first quarter drew to a close, the Tigers had exactly zero yards of total offense — 20 yards through the air and minus-20 on the ground. “They just dropped back and they told us, ‘Hey, we’re going to make you guys have to make plays,’” Franklin said, “and we just made a bunch of mistakes and they capitalized on that.” Josey finally got things rolling for Missouri in the second quarter, using his quick feet to spring for a couple of long runs. But a false start inside the 10-yard line on second down pushed the Tigers back and they had to settle for Grant Ressel’s 32yard field goal. Ressel had a chance to get Missouri within 10-6 at the break, but he pushed a 43yard attempt wide right on the final play of the half as rain started to fall. The Wildcats’ only big mistake all game happened early in the third quarter, when Klein was picked off by Kip Edwards. But their defense held and Ressel’s 36yard field goal attempt was wide left. Missouri cost itself later in the quarter when Darvin Ruise was called for roughing the punter, giving Kansas State the ball back. Hubert went to work, doing his best Darren Sproles imitation after taking a handoff, spinning away from a defender and going all the way down to the 3. Klein scored seconds later for a 17-3 lead. He added a short scoring plunge on the Wildcats’ next possession.

2-minute drill Kansas Okla. State

28 70

Couple of Cowboys out early ————

OSU bolted to big lead, yanked Weeden, Blackmon By Jesse Newell



Oklahoma State scored on its first eight (!) first-half possession to rout the Jayhawks. … Kansas scored on its first, then interspersed two lost fumbles and two interceptions among three punts and a turnover on downs before intermission.

STILLWATER, OKLA. — Oklahoma State football coach Mike Gundy said pulling quarterback Brandon Weeden with three minutes left in the second quarter wasn’t meant to be a slight against Kansas University. The Cowboys went on to defeat KANSAS LEADERS the Jayhawks, 70-28, on Saturday Rushing: Tony Pierson 6-54. at Boone Pickens Stadium. Passing: Jordan Webb 25-for-36 for 316 “We were ahead far enough yards and two touchdowns (two intercepted) to where there was no reason to Receiving: Tim Biere 7-93, JaCorey Shepleave him in the game, and we herd 3-82. could take everybody out,” Gundy said. “I like (KU coach) Turner OKLAHOMA STATE LEADERS Gill, and I’ve met him. Not that we Rushing: Jeremy Smith 3-39. have to give mercy to anybody, Passing: Brandon Weeden 24-for-28 for but there’s no reason to leave him 288 yards and five touchdowns. and (receiver Justin) Blackmon Receiving: Justin Blackmon 8-84, Hubert and those guys in when we’re Anyiam 5-85.

ahead by — I don’t even know how many touchdowns we were ahead by.” OSU was ahead 49-7 at the time, though backup quarterback Clint Chelf led the Cowboys to a touchdown on their final drive of the half to make it 56-7. “I’ve never had to pull a quarterback that early,” OSU offensive coordinator Todd Monken said. “But I have been on the other end where the other team’s quarterback came out really early, and it didn’t feel real good. Everything just kind of happened to make it go that way.” Weeden certainly was productive during his limited time. The senior completed 24 of 28 passes for 288 yards and five touchdowns.

His 85.7 percent completion percentage also set an OSU single-game mark (minimum 20 attempts). “That is one record that I will look at and take a lot of pride in,” Weeden said. “That means I’m being efficient, making good reads, making accurate throws and doing the right thing. “I want to be almost perfect. I was pretty close today.” OSU continued throwing in the third quarter, even with a significant lead. Chelf completed 14 of 21 passes for 206 yards and two touchdowns. It was the first time that two Cowboys quarterbacks threw for at least 200 yards in the same game.

“It’s hard for us to just run it because that’s not what we do,” Gundy said. “In the last four minutes, we just put two backs in and ran it up the middle. Other than that, we have to run our offense. It’s only fair to those guys to go in there and execute the plays that they’ve practiced for two months.” OSU’s 70 points were the most allowed by a Div. I defense this year. Eight players scored for the Cowboys. “A lot of young men that give a lot to our football team had a chance to get out there and play in front of their moms and dads,” Gundy said. “That’s really a neat day, and they get a big kick out of that, so overall it was a good day for us.”

First Quarter 10:34 — Tim Biere 10 pass from Jordan Webb. Alex Mueller kick. The Jayhawks opened with a 10-play, 80-yard drive that took 4:26. Webb was 6-for-7 on the drive, including two completions on third down. Biere had three catches for 57 yards. (KU 7, OSU 0). 8:45 — Josh Cooper 12 pass from Brandon Weeden. Quinn Sharp kick. The KU kickoff sailed out of bounds and set Oklahoma State up at the 40-yard line. Eight plays and 1:49 later, the Cowboys tied the game. (KU 7, OSU 7). 7:50 — Justin Blackmon 24 pass from Weeden. Sharp kick. After taking over at the KU 33-yard line after a Tony Pierson fumble, OSU needed just three plays and 40 seconds to take the lead. (OSU 14, KU 7). 5:40 — Hubert Anyiam 3 pass from Weeden. Sharp kick. KU went three-and-out on its third drive, and Oklahoma State continued its roll with a four-play drive that took just 50 seconds. The big play was a 56-yard pass from Weeden to Anyiam. (OSU 21, KU 7). 2:17 — Jeremy Smith 38 run. Sharp kick. Oklahoma State ripped off another drive that took less than two minutes. (OSU 28, KU 7). 0:12 — Anyiam 3 pass from Weeden. Sharp kick. Weeden connected with Anyiam twice on this three-play, 25-yard drive that was set up by an interception from OSU cornerback Brodrick Brown. (OSU 35, KU 7). Second Quarter 7:19 — Joseph Randle 2 run. Sharp kick. Oklahoma State was much slower and more methodical on this scoring drive, taking a full three minutes. The drive took 3:14 and 12 plays and went 80 yards. (OSU 42, KU 7). 4:02 — Blackmon 1 pass from Weeden. Sharp kick. Oklahoma State made it 49 straight points on a five-play drive that took 2:08 and traveled 19 yards. The Cowboys started the drive inside the red zone after Webb fumbled on KU’s previous possession. (OSU 49, KU 7). 2:42 — Isaiah Anderson 24 pass from Clint Chelf. Sharp kick. Nick Blatnick’s interception at the KU 20 set the Cowboys up deep in KU territory once again. This time, it was the OSU back-ups who added to the scoring. Second-stringers Chelf and Anderson hooked up on a deep post pattern that wound up wide open in the end zone. (OSU 56, KU 7). Third Quarter 11:23 — James Sims 17 run. Sharp kick. After the KU defense partially blocked an Oklahoma State punt to open the second half, the KU offense drove 31 yards in three plays and 1:02 to stop OSU’s scoring streak at 56 straight points. (OSU 56, KU 14). 8:12 — Michael Harrison 30 pass from Chelf. Sharp kick. KU stopped Oklahoma State on its first couple of second-half drives, but the Cowboys found a way to get back on the scoreboard by doing what they did in the first half — score fast. OSU scored in five plays and 1:14 to reclaim a 49-point lead. (OSU 63, KU 14). Fourth Quarter 12:45 — Herschel Sims. Sharp kick. Oklahoma State completed a couple of passes on this drive to reach the 481-yard mark through the air, which tied for the most passing yards KU had given up in a single game. The drive covered 80 yards and 2:27 and took 10 plays. (OSU 70, KU 14). 10:52 — JaCorey Shepherd 68 pass from Webb. Mueller kick. The KU offense tacked on its third touchdown of the day via a four-play, 80-yard drive that took 1:53 off the clock. Shepherd’s third TD of the year came on a crossing route in which he emerged wide-open over the middle and raced 40-plus yards to the end zone. (OSU 70, KU 21). 5:10 — Tony Pierson 31 run. Mueller kick. KU scored its third touchdown of the second half on an 11-play, 80-yard drive capped by the long TD run from the true freshman tailback. The drive, which was produced by mostly first-string Jayhawks, took 3:36. (OSU 70, KU 28).



the Jayhawks, who fell to 2-3 overall and 0-2 in Big 12 play. “It’s just an extra blow knowing that a team’s going out there and setting records on us,” junior cornerback Greg Brown said. “They played a good game, but a recordsetting performance against us doesn’t sit too well.” Each week, the KU coaching staff claims improvement is taking place. Yet each week the Jayhawks’ performance on the field fails to show it. Sure, Kansas played hard to the end and even outscored OSU, 21-14, in the second half. But the 56-7 halftime score made that fact irrelevant. Consider these crippling numbers: # Oklahoma State scored touchdowns on all eight of its first-half possessions, with its first five drives each taking less than 1:50. That included three drives that took less than a minute and one that took 30 seconds. # Weeden’s stellar passing numbers, which included a school record for completion percentage (85.7), came in just 11 minutes. After his fast start, Weeden was given the rest of the day off with less than three minutes to play in the first half. Two plays after Weeden replaced his helmet with a baseball cap, Chelf hit Isaiah Anderson with a 24-yard touchdown pass that gave OSU its highestscoring first half since 1973. “That’s not a good feeling at all, knowing that he played basically just one quarter and he can go hang it up like that,” Brown said. # KU turned the ball over a season-high four times, giving the potent OSU offense short field after short field. “We’re not at that point in our program where we can turn the ball over like that and still be competitive in the ballgame,” Gill said. # The Cowboys totaled 600 yards of offense, making them the third straight KU opponent to go over 530 yards and the second this year to break 600. They did so in

KANSAS LINEBACKER STEVEN JOHNSON (52) and cornerback Tyler Patmon (33) bring down Oklahoma State receiver Justin Blackmon just short of the end zone during the second quarter. 11 fewer minutes and five fewer plays than the Jayhawks, who finished with 478 yards, 316 of which came from QB Jordan Webb. “We’re not at a point where we’re able to compete in all phases against that kind of an offense,” defensive coordinator Vic Shealy said. “All we can do is go back to work. That may be cliche, but I do believe that the only way you do get better is by going back to work.” Perhaps that’s been the most frustrating part of the awful stretch that has landed KU’s defense at the bottom of the NCAA’s statistical rankings. It’s not so much a lack of effort that’s plaguing the Jayhawks as it is a lack of preparation, instinct and execution. Asked why he thought the KU defense again struggled so mightily on Saturday, Gill provided two answers. “We have to give credit to the opponents, number one,” he said. “Number two, we have to make sure our guys are able to make the plays they need to make.” Why aren’t they? “I think we’re still thinking and reacting instead of, when you see something, just reacting to it,” Gill added. Part of that, at least this week, was due to the performance by Oklahoma State. “They have a prolific quarterback,” KU offensive coordinator Chuck Long said. “The guy’s going to the NFL. They’re very ma-

ture, they have a mature offense, and you know going into the game that they’re going to move the ball and score. Our issue was we didn’t want to compound that by turning the ball over, and that’s something we need to get cleaned up.” Despite just about everything going Oklahoma State’s way, more than half the stadium — which boasted 58,030 fans at the start — cleared out by the middle of the third quarter because of a driving rain that came down as fast as the Cowboys lit up the scoreboard. It must have felt like a home game for KU. So now the focus shifts to next week, when No. 2 Oklahoma comes to Lawrence. Your move, OU. If Oklahoma State can do this to the Jayhawks, what are the Sooners going to do? It’s a fair question, one that will be answered in front of a national television audience courtesy of ESPN2. At this rate, one has to wonder if even the complimentary tickets the KU athletic department is planning to give away for that game can help fill Memorial Stadium. Full stadium or not, Shealy said the coaching staff would use the loss to OSU as motivation to get ready for the Sooners. “That will be reiterated to them throughout different conversations throughout the week,” Shealy said. “Our players need to be psychologically strong, and we’ll find out what we’re made out of.”

OKLAHOMA STATE FULLBACK KYE STALEY GETS TAKEN OFF HIS FEET by Kansas safety Lubbock Smith in the fourth quarter. OSU beat KU, 70-28, on Saturday in Stillwater, Okla.


QB Webb: It’s ‘too soon’ to blame Gill “Tim’s one of our best offensive players,” Webb said. “He definitely is. And I feel like we’ve gotta keep finding ways to get him the ball.”

By Matt Tait

STILLWATER, OKLA. — Message boards, Twitter feeds and a variety of KU websites raged with a similar message during and after the Kansas University football team’s latest lopsided loss, a 70-28 setback at Oklahoma State on Saturday. That message? Fire Turner Gill. Although Gill is just five games into his second season as head coach at Kansas, it’s clear that the fan base has grown tired of watching his team give up huge yardage and point totals on a weekly basis. While the Jayhawks’ performance has taken a toll on the players, several said it’s far too simple-minded to pinpoint Gill as the main problem. “It’s definitely too soon,” sophomore quarterback Jordan Webb said. “People who are questioning us outside of the program, they can say what they want, but we’re going to keep working hard and try our best. We’re just gonna shut their opinions out because it really doesn’t matter. If they knew half of what they thought they knew, they’d be in the coaching profession.” Added junior cornerback Greg Brown: “Coach Gill, he’s the least of our problems. We just have to keep things positive and go out there and face what you have in front of you.”

Why the hurry? Despite squaring off against an offense that tries to get in as many as 100 plays per game, the KU offense


he strongly leaned, especially when he talked about the new KU coach on the radio. Well, it hasn’t been two years, and it’s not too early to form a strong opinion. It looks as if Perkins didn’t hire the right man for an extremely difficult job. Gill was the right man to raise Buffalo’s program from the ashes and give it some national visibility, but nothing suggests he’s the right man to follow a coach who had such a different approach to one of the three or four toughest jobs in the Big 12. It’s not Gill’s 5-12 record in one season and five games that makes that clear. It’s not as if he and his staff inherited impressive talent. Mangi-

Injury update Red-shirt freshman running back Brandon Bourbon had his bell rung on a kickoff return during Saturday’s loss. “Obviously, I think he had a little concussion,” Gill said. “He didn’t really know where he was, at and we’ll get that reassessed. When you have something like that, we’re all going to protect him, and he’s not going to go back in at that time. We’ll see how it all goes in the next week.” Safety Keeston Terry also left because of injury. Gill said after the game he did not know the type or severity of Terry’s injury.

Webb, Biere lead KU offense Both Gill and offensive coordinator Chuck Long said they were impressed with Webb’s performance Satur-

day, as much from a competitive standpoint as from his final stat line. Webb finished 25-of-36 passing for a career-high 316 yards and two touchdowns. He also threw two interceptions and lost a fumble. “I thought Jordan, overall, threw the ball well,” Long said. “Thirty-six attempts is probably our top end. We’d like to keep that around 30 or less, but it was just one of those games.” Webb’s best possession of the day came in the first quarter, when he led the Jayhawks on a 10-play, 80-yard touchdown drive that gave

Kansas a 7-0 lead to open the game. Webb was 6-of-7 on the drive, including a 10-yard touchdown pass to tight end Tim Biere. “We always talk about starting fast, and we did just that,” Webb said. “It’s frustrating that we didn’t build on that.” Speaking of Biere, the senior from Omaha, Neb., recorded career highs in receptions (7) and yards (93) to lead KU’s receivers. His 35-yard catch on the opening drive also was a career long, and he became the 13th Jayhawk to score a TD this season.

This and that... For the first time in five games, the Jayhawks lost the opening coin toss. Oklahoma State chose to defer its choice to the second half, and Kansas elected to receive... Nick Sizemore’s blocked punt in the third quarter was KU’s first since the 2008 Insight Bowl... The 68-yard touchdown pass from Webb to freshman JaCorey Shepherd in the fourth quarter marked a career long for both players... Junior wide receiver Kale Pick recorded a careerhigh five receptions for 49 yards... Red-shirt freshman Ricki Herod snagged his first career reception... Temperature at kickoff was 83 degrees, under partly cloudy skies with winds gusting from 21-31 mph out of the east.

the athletic department, guaranteed Gill $10 million for five seasons, even though the Buffalo coach made just $450,000 per season. In so doing, Perkins handcuffed his successor, Sheahon Zenger. Most believe Zenger will take a hard look at Gill’s performance after the 2012 season, but if the Jayhawks stay on such a sharp decline, and if the AD is approached by an angry pack of wealthy boosters willing to pool resources to buy out the head coach, what then? If that doesn’t happen, Zenger has no choice but to let Gill stay through next season and hope that he and his coaches score as many standout defensive recruits as they already have offensive players in such a short time. If Gill stays on the job through next season and hasn’t made significant strides, Zenger will be forced

to execute an extremely difficult firing in that Gill’s such an easy man to like, and in many ways admire. At his two most important jobs in life, father and husband, it’s clear Gill’s a natural, a straight-A performer. He consistently practices his strong religious beliefs more than he preaches them. He’s no showoff, no hypocrite. In terms of caring about the lives of his players, more good grades. They find the experience of playing for him an enjoyable one, except on Saturdays, when the losses too often are so lopsided. Gill measures up admirably as a man, but he’s getting paid $2 million a year to coach football, and that’s the job for which he must be evaluated by his boss. Gill’s first chance to establish a foundation for winning came in selecting his coaching staff, and in that regard, it looks as if he’s batting

.500. Offensive coordinator Chuck Long has done an excellent job of instructing quarterback Jordan Webb and in calling plays. Running backs coach Reggie Mitchell ranks as an elite recruiter, and the backs he coaches make up the best unit on the team. Line coach J.B. Grimes knows how to build a running game. Bringing back receivers coach David Beaty made perfect sense. Gill decided against keeping anybody from Mangino’s defensive staff, even though linebackers coach Bill Miller would have brought with him the top recruit in the state of Kansas, Geneo Grissom of Hutchinson. When Miller wasn’t retained, Grissom, a defensive end, committed to Oklahoma. In seven of his 10 Big 12 games, Gill’s defense has allowed 45 points or more. The score could have been so much worse Saturday. Oklahoma State coach Mike

Gundy pulled starting quarterback Brandon Weeden before the half to slow down the rate of KU’s bleeding. Had Gundy felt like it, he could have coached his Cowboys to 100 points. In the first half, all eight OSU offensive possessions ended with a touchdown. The Cowboys had 35 points by the end of the first quarter, 56 at the half. Three weeks after surrendering 66 points to Georgia Tech, the defense proved it has gotten worse, not better since then. I asked Gill if the lack of improvement indicated that the players aren’t listening to what they’re being told, aren’t being told the right things or are physically overmatched. “Probably a little of all of the above,” Gill said. You have to admit it’s getting worse, a little worse all the time. No easy way out presents itself.

KANSAS FANS WATCH THE JAYHAWKS’ LOPSIDED LOSS at Oklahoma State. seemed to be equally uptempo throughout Saturday’s game. Asked why he didn’t try to counter OSU’s fast pace by milking the clock on every possession, Gill said he chose to stick with what had worked for his offense all season. “It’s a rhythm,” Gill said. “I’m not gonna say we never will change our plan to maybe slow it down, but that’s the way we have practiced, and, if you do that, you may be a little off-kilter. There’s time to do that, slow it down. We’re not necessarily in a fast pace sometimes, we’re

no and his assistants, led by current Northern Illinois head coach Dave Doeren, recruited phenomenally well early. In retrospect, the 2004 recruiting class ranked second to no other school in the nation. After Doeren left to become an assistant at Wisconsin, the recruiting never quite recovered and slipped quite a bit in the final two seasons. That might explain a losing record, but it doesn’t excuse the uninspired play, the ridiculously one-sided outcomes and the shoddy fundamentals, most loudly evident in poor tackling. Poor performances that come with a litany of alltime worst figures for the KU defense, and school records for the opposing offenses mount. Perkins, who believed in paying for what he deemed the position to be worth, instead of negotiating as good a deal as possible for

trying to get in the right play call.” He continued: “Looking at the overall picture, what’s best for our football team, at this time I feel like we need to continue to have a rhythm, and I think this first five ballgames, offensively, we’ve played well. So there hasn’t been a specific reason to say, ‘The offense is struggling, let’s change this up a little bit and try this or try that.’”

TEXAS RIGHT-HANDER ALEXI OGANDO THROWS a pitch during the sixth inning of Game 1 of the American League championship series against Detroit on Saturday in Arlington, Texas.

Rangers shrug off rain, tame Tigers, 3-2 By Stephen Hawkins Associated Press Sports Writer

ARLINGTON, TEXAS — After the rain, the Texas Rangers opened the AL championship series by beating Justin Verlander for the second time this year. Nelson Cruz broke a postseason slump with a home run that helped boost the Rangers over the Tigers, 3-2, Saturday night as rain followed the Detroit ace and caused nearly two hours of delays. The defending AL champion Rangers scored all their runs off Verlander before the game was interrupted twice for a total of 1 hour, 50 minutes in the top of the fifth. The final out wasn’t until 12:03 a.m. CDT. David Murphy hit an RBI single in the second and scored on Ian Kinsler’s single, and Cruz’s leadoff homer in the fourth made it 3-0. In between the delays, Austin Jackson doubled in a run and scored on a wild pitch by Rangers starter C.J. Wilson. Alexi Ogando, who got all three of the Rangers’ regular-season wins over Detroit this year, pitched two scoreless innings for the victory. Neftali Feliz, clocked at up to 101 mph, worked the ninth for his fourth save this postseason. Game 2 is tonight. Derek Holland starts for Texas against Max Scherzer, who pitched 1 1/3 innings in relief

for the Tigers in their AL division series clincher Thursday night against the New York Yankees. Texas faced Verlander only once during the regular season, a 2-0 Rangers’ win on April 11 when Verlander lost despite pitching a six-hitter. The likely AL Cy Young Award winner was 3-0 with a 1.29 ERA in his three previous career starts at hitterfriendly Rangers Ballpark, allowing three runs in 21 innings. Texas matched that run total in four innings when it counted most. Verlander threw one inning and 25 pitches in the division series opener at Yankee Stadium on Sept. 30 when that game was suspended by rain. Under a rules change adopted two years ago, postseason games are suspended when called instead of being cut short or wiped out. Verlander came back and started Game 3, winning as he threw 120 pitches over eight innings, and he threw 82 pitches in four innings against the Rangers before the first delay. The Rangers, in their second consecutive ALCS after never winning a postseason series before last year, left two runners on base in the first. Play was stopped for 41 minutes but the teams got only 13 minutes in before the tarp came out again. In between the delays, the Tigers

scored twice and loaded the bases with two outs. The rain delays were the first at Rangers Ballpark since May 24. This season was played during one of the hottest and driest summers ever in North Texas, including 27 games when the temperature was 100 degrees or more at first pitch. Wilson, who had thrown 72 pitches before the first delay, threw 24 more during the short resumption. Rick Porcello, Detroit’s scheduled Game 4 starter, had two scoreless innings after replacing Verlander.

Al Davis Bio

NAME: Allen Davis BORN: July 4, 1929, in Brockton, Mass. DIED: Oct. 8, 2011. AWARDS: AFL’s Coach of the Year in 1963. HONORS: Inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1992. ACCOMPLISHMENTS Hired as coach and general manager of the AFL’s Oakland Raiders in January 1963. At 33, he was the youngest person in pro football history to hold those positions. Compiled 23-16-3 record in three years as coach. Appointed American Football League commissioner in April 1966. Resigned as commissioner six weeks after the AFL and NFL agree to an alliance that includes common draft and championship game. Davis rejoined Raiders as managing general partner. RAIDERS From 1967 to 1985 the team won 13 division championships, one AFL championship (1967), three Super Bowls (1977, 1981 and 1984) and made 15 playoff appearances. Won AFC championship in 2002. One of two teams to play in the Super Bowl in four different decades, along with the Pittsburgh Steelers. OWNERSHIP 1966 — Purchased 10 percent stake in the Raiders and returned to his old club as one of three general partners along with Wayne Valley and Ed McGah. He was named head of football operations. 1972 — Revised partnership agreement made him the new managing general partner, with near-absolute control over team operations. McGah signed the agreement and Valley sued to overturn the agreement, but was unsuccessful. Valley sold his interest in 1976. 2005 — Acquired majority interest in the Raiders, when he bought the shares held by McGah’s family. 2007 — Sold a minority stake in the Raiders for $150 million.LAWSUITS 1980 — Attempted to move the Raiders to Los Angeles but was blocked by a court injunction. Davis filed an anti-trust lawsuit against the NFL. In June 1982 a federal district court ruled in Davis’ favor and the team officially relocated to Los Angeles for the 1982 NFL season. 1986 — United States Football League filed its antitrust suit agiant the NFL. Davis was the only NFL owner who sided with the USFL. 1995 — Moved the team back to Oakland. Davis then sued the NFL, contending the league sabotaged the team’s effort to build a stadium at Hollywood Park in Inglewood by not doing enough to help the team move from the antiquated Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum to a new stadium complete with luxury suites. The NFL won a 9-3 verdict in 2001, but a new trial was awarded amid accusations that one juror was biased against the team and Davis, and that another juror committed misconduct. A state appeals court later overturned that decision. The case was thrown out in 2007 by the California Supreme Court. Mid-1990s — Davis sued the NFL on behalf of the Raiders, saying the Raiders had exclusive rights to the Los Angeles market, even though the Raiders were in Oakland. Davis and the Raiders lost the lawsuit.

Colts, Chiefs similar



K.C., Indy have slow starts in common By Michael Marot Associated Press Sports Writer

INDIANAPOLIS — Chiefs coach Todd Haley and Colts coach Jim Caldwell have followed the same path into this week’s game. Both became NFL head coaches in 2009. Both won division titles in 2010. Both have seen their teams struggle so badly the first month of 2011, they’re now being lumped into talk about the Andrew Luck Sweepstakes. Both have had to contend with an array of debilitating injuries, and neither expects to be earn sympathy on any given Sunday. The cold, hard truth is that they’re still measured by victories. “You feel for the players that go down because these guys invest so much in their teams,” Haley said. “As far as the outside, nobody really does care. You don’t get a ‘pass-go card.’ You have to figure out a way to get results in a result business.” That mission has become increasingly more complicated this season. Kansas City (1-3) has already lost running back Jamaal Charles, safety Eric Berry and tight end Tony Moeaki with season-ending injuries, and six players are on injured reserve. That’s derailed expectations of being a contender this year. Hey, at least the Chiefs broke out of the NFL’s winless pack with five field goals and a touchdown in a 22-17 victory over winless Minnesota. Caldwell empathizes because things have been even worse for Indy (0-4). Peyton Manning hasn’t played a down since undergoing neck surgery in May. The Colts have lost two defensive starters with seasonending shoulder injuries, a defensive tackle with an ankle injury, and will likely be missing their top two left tackles today. The coaching staff is playing musical chairs with what was already a young offensive line that must protect Curtis Painter from big hits because Kerry Collins is still recovering from a concussion. And the usually fast-starting Colts hope to avoid their first five-game losing streak since 2001 and their first 0-5 start since 1997. It’s a major change. “The feeling in the locker room being 0-4 is obviously different,” defensive end Dwight Freeney said. “Does it mean the season is over? No, but it’s definitely not a great feeling.” For more than a decade, the Colts were the NFL’s poster child for success and stability.

SPREAD — Kansas City 2-2; Indianapolis 2-2 SERIES RECORD — Colts lead 13-7 LAST MEETING — Colts beat Chiefs 19-9, Oct. 10, 2010 LAST WEEK — Chiefs beat Vikings 22-17; Colts lost at Tampa Bay 24-17 CHIEFS OFFENSE — OVERALL (29), RUSH (14), PASS (30) CHIEFS DEFENSE — OVERALL (21T), RUSH (26), PASS (17) COLTS OFFENSE — OVERALL (30), RUSH (28), PASS (26T) COLTS DEFENSE — OVERALL (25), RUSH (28), PASS (20) STREAKS, STATS AND NOTES — Chiefs averaging 131.1 yards rushing per game on road since 2009. ... Matt Cassel has produced passer ratings over 100 each of past two weeks. Manning never missed a start. Indy won at least 10 games in nine straight seasons and made the playoffs a record-tying nine consecutive times — streaks now in serious jeopardy. Changes on the coaching staff and in the front office were rare, and controversy was virtually nonexistent. Even now, with losses mounting, the exasperation expressed by fans has yet to impact the Colts’ locker room. “The only way to get back to winning is to work hard,” longtime center Jeff Saturday said. “You can’t fold up or back down. Nobody is going to feel sorry for you, and nobody cares who doesn’t play on your team. The message I tell the guys? Show up ready to work and play hard. Give yourself a chance to win the fourth quarter.” The losing has taken its toll in Kansas City. Haley and quarterback Matt Cassel have downplayed last week’s sideline confrontation. It’s not the first time they’ve dealt with infighting this season. Receiver Jon Baldwin, the Chiefs’ first-round pick, could finally get a chance to make his NFL debut. He’s been out since hurting his right thumb in an altercation with a teammate during training camp. He finally made it back for his first full practice Wednesday. His return comes just in time to make the trip to Indy,

... WR Steve Breaston has receptions of at least 40 yards in Chiefs’ last two games. ... Kansas City punt returner Javier Arenas averaging 20.7 yards on returns, second best in NFL. ... Tamba Hali leads AFC with four sacks. ... Indy has won three straight in series and 5-0 vs. Chiefs in Indianapolis. Colts last home loss to Chiefs was Dec. 21, 1980. ... Colts haven’t lost five straight since 2001 and haven’t started 0-5 since 1997. ... Curtis Painter expected to make second NFL start after becoming first player since Bengals’ Jeff Blake in 1994 with two 50-plus yard TD passes in first NFL start. ... Joseph Addai’s 230 yards rushing is his highest total through four games since 2007. ... Addai needs two TDs to record 50th score in Colts career, which would tie Jimmy Orr for No. 9 in club history. ... DE Dwight Freeney needs three sacks to become 26th player in league with 100 sacks in career. the only current NFL city that the Chiefs are winless. But Cassel figures it will take more than an attitude adjustment or good fortune to beat the reeling Colts on their home turf. The Chiefs haven’t done that since 1980 when the Colts franchise was still located in Baltimore, and there is good reason for Cassel to be concerned — namely Indy’s pass rushers. “Those guys are truly the best in the game at what they do,” he said of Pro Bowl defensive ends Robert Mathis and Freeney. “Our offensive line did a great job of blocking those guys and giving me time to throw, and it’ll be another big challenge for them this week.” Indy faces the same kind of obstacles. Its inexperienced, makeshift line must contend with one of the league’s elite pass rushers in Tamba Hali, a defensive coordinator (Romeo Crennel) who knows how to stop the Colts from his years in New England, and an offense still trying to get in sync without Manning. But Caldwell, like Haley, insists the season is not lost, no matter what outsiders think. “We’re very close and the guys are fighting and scratching,” Caldwell said. “I think we’re doing a lot of things well, but not consistently enough. There is a very thin line between winning and losing and we have to tip that scale.”

CAST MEMBERS JULIE MILLER, PLAYING PUCK, AND TAYLOR GEIMAN, PLAYING OBERON, rehearse Tuesday for KU Theatre’s production of “Shakesepeare in Hollywood” at the Crafton-Preyer Theatre.



KU Theatre takes Shakespeare’s ‘Dream’ characters to Hollywood By Ben Pfeiffer

Special to the Journal-World

The first dress rehearsal starts in 15 minutes, and the cast is spread out on couches in the basement beneath Crafton-Preyer Theatre; they call it the Green Room. The actors and crew members talk over one another, fine-tuning lines, blocking, reacting to the scenes they’ve been practicing. They joke to relieve the tension. Several are waiting for emergency modifications to their costumes and makeup. There’s an unmistakable anticipation as they wait for their director, Mechele Leon, to relay some last-minute changes. Next week, these students will take the stage in “Shakespeare in Hollywood,” the first play of the KU theater department’s 2011–2012 season. The play reimagines two fairies, Oberon and Puck, characters from “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.”

CHRISTIAN JOHANNING plays Tarzan in KU Theatre’s production of “Shakespeare in Hollywood.” The author, Ken Ludwig, conceived the story as a farce set in Hollywood circa 1934, during a film shoot directed by Max Reinhardt, a historical figure who did in fact direct an adaptation of Shakespeare’s play for legendary producer Jack Warner, one of the Warner brothers. Julie Miller, who plays Puck, says the mischief begins when

Shakespeare’s famous fairies are cast as themselves in Reinhardt’s film adaptation of “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.” “It’s taking Oberon and Puck and placing them in the wrong wood: Hollywood,” says Miller. “So they’re the characters you might expect, but with different motivations. It’s a comedy, it’s slapstick and it’s fun. In this play, Oberon does

fall in love with a mortal. And Puck, for instance, he looks at Hollywood in all of its wonder, and kind of falls into the Hollywood trap. He wants to establish a new life there.” “It’s funny that it’s all based in fact, but there are still fictional characters, and it’s still a fictional story,” says John StaPlease see KU THEATRE, page 2C


Some tips for shooting video By Mike Yoder

I think it’s time I change my job description at the Journal-World from still photographer to visual journalist. I’ll estimate that our staff now spends 35 to 50 percent of our time gathering, editing and producing video for online content. We’ve transitioned from being single-shot storytellers to weavers of multimedia information. Fortunately, some of the tools and techniques used to produce good still photography are the same to succeed in video storytelling. My cameras are Canons, an EOS 5D Mark II and a 7D. They not only capture large still frame files, but also

record gorgeous HD video. Filmmakers are so impressed with the cameras’ video capabilities that they’ve been used in TV and movie productions. The 2010 season finale of the popular TV show “House” was filmed entirely with the Canon 5D Mark II.

Schwarzenegger inaugurates his museum in Austria By George Jahn Associated Press

THAL, AUSTRIA — For a day at least, Arnold Schwarzenegger could forget about his messy divorce and bask in the adulation of a sympathetic crowd. As an oom-pah band played, the action starturned-politician inaugurated a museum dedicated to him in his native Austria, setting off cheers Friday as he pulled a string to unveil a bronze statue of a young Arnie flexing in the skintight trunks of his Mr. Universe days. It’s a far cry from the kind of reception he’s getting in the United States. Schwarzenegger is under fire back home since acknowledging this year that he fathered a child with a woman who worked as his family’s housekeeper. The revelation led Maria Shriver, his wife of 25 years, to file for divorce. He’s now in the headlines these days more for his personal problems than his professional exploits as body builder, Hollywood star and California governor. There was little criticism Friday, however, as he returned to the village of Thal, near the southern city Graz, to formally open the Schwarzenegger museum in the more than two-century-old house of his birth. In words and actions, it was clear that Austria’s most famous living son preferred to dwell on the accomplishments of the past rather than deal with the painful present — and that his adoring fans were ready to play the game. Those close enough to see him among the hundreds who braved driving rain and an autumn chill cheered and whistled in appreciation as he uncovered the 2 1/2 meter (8-foot) Schwarzenegger bronze, set up close to the museum entrance. The statue is one of seven commissioned by Schwarzenegger this year and cast by an Oregon company, perhaps a prelude to plans for similar sites elsewhere. Even if some in the crowd knew that the Schwarzenegger likeness was not unique, they didn’t seem to care. Bodyguards had to pry a path through people holding an umbrella in one hand and trying to touch their idol with the other, cheering and calling out “Arnie,” as he passed by. The museum also avoids reference to Schwarzenegger’s out-of-wedlock child and his pending divorce, with displays that end at his terms as California governor. Open

of “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” just last year. “I thought that if there was ever a time to do this play, this was it,” says Leon. “We had such a wonderful audience in our theatre last year.” Staniunas agrees: “We thought it would be fun for people who saw “A Midsummers Night’s Dream” to see a spoof, too,” he says. “At the same time, we wanted to explore this whole 1930s screwball comedy. It’s a style piece for the students. And, as educators, we want to give them as many different opportunities to play in as many different styles of theater as we can.” Julie Miller says that students in the fast-paced production have a chance to work alongside their professors. This gives students a chance to learn from their teachers in a different, and sometimes more engaging, way. “Professors give you advice, and they critique you in classes, but to be able to see them in action is really cool,” says Miller. “It’s just that extra boost of motivation.” Leon says professors also enjoy the chance to connect with their students. She is only teaching a graduate seminar this semester, and as a consequence she met many new students when they joined the cast and crew of “Shakespeare in Hollywood.” “We hope we don’t chase

them away,” says Leon, laughing. “A lot of theater departments will not allow students in the main stage production until they get to their junior year, but we allow freshmen and up. If they’re good, we cast them. We also allow nonmajors.” Leon adds that as director she sought to bring some of her own expertise to this specific production. “When I approached this, I was brining a couple of things that relate to my research. My area of specialty is work on the French playwright Molière. I think he’s the greatest comic playwright to ever lived. In a way, I feel like it’s a bridge for me. I’m bringing some of my knowledge of comedy through Molière to an American author.” Leon says the success of the play will depend on many dedicated volunteers, from artists and costume designers to actors and crewmembers that make everything behind-the-scenes function smoothly. “It’s fast-paced,” says Ryan Lueders, who works backstage. “There are a lot of quick changes in this show. Some times we only have two pages of dialogue to switch a cast member from a tuxedo into a full, three-piece suit.” “It gives you an appreciation for the tech process as an actor — to respect the people, because you’re one big family,” Lueders adds.


If you don’t have a tripod, look for flat surfaces or other ways to support and steady your camera. Yes, you can shoot without a tripod, and I often do, but it’s best in situations where either you or the subject is also moving with the flow of the action. 2. Think in sequences. If you later want to piece together your footage and create a short film, consider gathering video from different points of view to provide the viewer with varied perspective. Still photographers tend to move around a subject with the goal of capturing just one moment that best documents the subject. With video, you need all the perspectives and cutaways to create a flow of visual information rather than one stationary shot. Vary your shots with wide, medium and tight framing of your subject. 3. Gather good audio. Most built-in mics on cameras that record video are not great but can be adequate if that is all you have. It’s better if can add an external microphone or use a hand-held recorder and add audio in post-production software. When possible, match interview content with video footage. If you docu-

ment a birthday party and you get audio of someone saying, “That was hilarious when the elephant stepped on the cake,” it makes sense that you should have some cutaway footage of the elephant stepping on the cake. Your video and audio content should support each other. There are situations where just pressing “record” and sticking to one subject is all that is needed for an interesting video. A lot of YouTube videos are suc-

cessful with the simplest of techniques and tools. What is more important is being on the scene of a video-worthy event and knowing how to handle your recorder no matter how simple the device. Video capturing devices like Flipcams and cell phones can make everyone a multimedia storyteller with just a little know-how. But whether your camera requires its own bag or fits in a pocket, these tips still apply.

Leon, associate professor and director of “Shakespeare in Hollywood,” says the play is part of the season’s “Imagining America” theme, developed as part of a universitywide initiative. “The University of Kansas recently joined a consortium of many other universities around the country in order to explore the ways in which universities — and particularly arts and humanities — can serve the public good,” says Leon. “So when I heard that we were joining, I thought it would be a good idea to ask our faculty to propose plays that they felt spoke to that theme.” Leon says that each play from the season looks at America in a creative way, and “Shakespeare in Hollywood” immerses the audience in the glitz and glam of the golden age of cinema. “We wanted to capture the Warner Brothers Studio,” she says. “And it’s important because it’s really the story of theater in the movies.” Leon says it was interesting to do “Shakespeare in Hollywood,” because KU theater put on a production

BOOKS How we became modern

Scholar tells riveting tale of how ancient poem profoundly changed history By John Timpane

The Philadelphia Inquirer

PHILADELPHIA — “It’s not the Da Vinci Code,” says Stephen Greenblatt, “but it tells the same story: the thrill and astonishment when something very old, something thought to be lost, forgotten, returns to the world with the potential to change it.” Greenblatt is speaking of his new book, “The Swerve: How the World Became Modern.” He’s right: “Swerve” isn’t much like Dan Brown’s “Da Vinci Code.” The latter is a fantasy potboiler. (Not that there’s anything wrong with that; it’s one of the most sensational successes in publishing history.) But “Swerve” is an intense, emotional telling of a true story, one with much at stake for all of us. And the further you read, the more astonishing it becomes. It’s a chapter in how we became what we are, how we arrived at the worldview of the present. No one can tell the whole story, but Greenblatt seizes on a crucial pivot, a moment of recovery, of transmission, as amazing as anything in fiction. What’s recovered, crazily enough, is a tattered copy of an epic philosophical poem written two millennia ago (at least 55 B.C.) by the Roman poet Lucretius (full name, Titus Lucretius Caro). Its traditional name is “De Rerum Natura (On the Nature of Things),” and it’s one of the wonders of world poetry. It also was a dangerous poem — in any society that required belief in gods. It posits a cosmos of atoms eternally in motion, of human life without gods or an afterlife. It says wisdom resides in the enhancement of pleasure and avoidance of pain. And it sees in the contrarious and unpredictable nature of

reality a “swerve,” an almost willful jump, which sounds a lot (to some readers) like the indeterminability of quantum physics. This masterwork anticipated much that materialist, empirical, scientific people now think about the universe. “The direct inheritors of Lucretius,” Greenblatt says from his office at Harvard, where he is professor of English and American literature, “turn out to be everyone who lives in this world — everyone who gets an MRI, or flies in an airplane, or lives in a world of nuclear power, or lives in a country that cares about enhancing the happiness and diminishing the sufferings of everyone.” But Lucretius almost did not survive. His poem was praised in its own time, but when Rome fell, it, too, descended into oblivion. “I wanted to bring out the urgency of it,” Greenblatt says, “of what was at stake. I often think about how much might have been different had it never been found. I wanted the reader not to lose the startle reflex.” So — not unlike Umberto Eco, who in “The Name of the Rose” set a murder mystery in the unlikely world of

medieval monks — Greenblatt tells a gripping tale of ... scholarship, of a Renaissance book-hunter who travels hundreds of miles from Italy to a monastery in Northern Europe, where in 1417, he recognizes and rescues what was all but the last trace of Lucretius. Poggio Bracciolini is the name of the book-hunter, an energetic and many-talented man whose portrait is one of the best things about “Swerve.” Once Poggio helps transmit the near-lost poem to the world, a powder trail is sparked in minds centuries into the future. Lucretius grazes off Machiavelli, Montaigne, Giordano Bruno, Shakespeare, Galileo, Darwin, Einstein. The book ends with Thomas Jefferson writing the phrase pursuit of Happiness in the Declaration of Independence — a Lucretian moment that helped fledge this very country. “We really have lost, or almost lost, two things,” says Greenblatt. “It’s the poetic and visionary power of Lucretius, and it’s the Renaissance that’s at risk of getting lost.” Again like “Name of the Rose,” Greenblatt’s book is for a general readership, and it’s written by a scholar long-

‘Orchid’ author talks motherhood, research, ‘Rin Tin Tin’ Cris Armstrong, bartender, Lawrence “‘Calculating God’ by Robert Sawyer. I read ‘Flash Forward’ by him and really enjoyed it, so I thought I’d try this one.”

By Carolyn Kellogg Los Angeles Times

LOS ANGELES — With a dog at her feet and an advance copy of her book “Rin Tin Tin” on the table, Susan Orlean sips coffee in the backyard of the Los Angeles house she now calls home. In September, the New Yorker staff writer, whose book “The Orchid Thief” was the (sort of) basis for the film “Adaptation,” left rural New York behind. For the next year, she, her husband and son will be calling themselves Angelenos, thanks partly to the movie-star dog and Orlean’s responsibilities as a working mother. “I started being inflamed with the idea that Rin Tin Tin was a great story, but I didn’t know what the story was, of course,” says Orlean, Sharon Roulains, who begins all her work with livecustomer service ly curiosity before plunging into representative, the unknown. The story — about a Lawrence puppy rescued from the battlefields “‘A Man Named Dave’ by Dave Pelzer. It’s the last in of World War I by an American soldier and the long, rich, movie-andthe series. Very sad.” television legacy the two created — meant doing extended research in California. She got the book contract in 2004; a few months later, she was pregnant. Traveling to the archives she needed on the West Coast, she soon realized, would mean being apart from her young son. “Before I had a family, I would have simply come out for a couple of weeks, come home, come back Answer : out a few more weeks as needed,” SHADOW IMPORT ACTUAL Orlean says. “Well, that just wasn’t BYLINE SUNKEN AWAKEN going to work. I didn’t know what What the assistant coach would to do. There was a moment where I become after he caught the coach thought, ‘I don’t know if I can do the stealing equipment — book.’” A WHISTLE-BLOWER The solution was to do exactly

the kind of long-term, immersive research she always had — in writing about taxidermy, a high school basketball player, a lady bullfighter — but bring the whole family out for a month. Orlean’s husband, John Gillespie Jr., was selling his company, so he was available to pick up stakes — fairly well-heeled stakes, in fact. But having an au pair, as they do, doesn’t address the key issue for Orlean. “It’s hard to be a professional and be not a parent but a mother,” she says. “Children have a primal connection to their mother — I’m telling you, it’s hard-wired.” Her smart phone pings repeatedly with emails and alarms. Her latest story, on fashion designer Jean-Paul Gaultier, was in final edits for the New Yorker’s Monday issue. “I feel like I’m still sorting this out,” she muses. “In spite of the perception of it being the perfectly suited job to having children, it may be exactly ill-suited to being a parent.” Orlean’s family found a Los Angeles that was increasingly enticing to them. In sublets in Malibu, Venice and the Hollywood Hills, they extended their planned one-month visit to more than four. After bouncing around, they wondered if instead of subletting they should invert the process and buy a place of their own to use when needed. Then they found the Schindler house. It was love: panicked, seesawing, what-are-we-doing love. They bought it in 2007, and this year —

sparked by a new business opportunity for John — is the first time they’ve been able to stay there for more than a long holiday. The house is impeccably restored and Midcentury beautiful but also human in scale. It’s an architecturally significant home that feels livable; the living room is modestly sized, featuring an era-appropriate couch with rumpled red-orange cushions. The small garden out back is sheltered by greenery, framing a view of the San Fernando Valley without revealing the neighbors, who by the sound of things are mostly birds and the occasional chain-saw user. On a recent morning, a coyote passed through. As sylvan as that sounds, it’s nothing compared with the 55 rural acres they’ve been living on in Columbia County, N.Y. When she first tweeted about her move to Los Angeles on Twitter, the most common response from her more than 184,000 followers was, basically, “What about the chickens?!?” On her New Yorker blog Free Range, Orlean has written with fascination and fondness about her chickens as well as their other critters, from cattle to cats. After some thought, the family brought the dog and two of three cats with them to the city. “I think each time you move, it’s like a booster rocket. The pure newness of your circumstance super-fuels your curiosity,” she says. Orlean was brought up in Cleveland, went to college in Michigan and then moved to Portland, Ore., where she wound up writing for Willamette

Week, a local alternative paper. She was assigned to cover the county, which typically would mean attending governmental meetings; her first story, written around 1980, was about amyl nitrate, its popularity and easy availability. “My editor said, ‘You’re supposed to be covering the county’; I said, ‘It’s taking place in the county,’” she remembers. “Then I did another story like that, and another one, and he finally said to me, ‘Just do what you want.’” Ever since, people have allowed Orlean close enough into their lives so that she can tell her stories in depth. Perhaps her petite size disarms them, but more likely it’s her wide smile and evident enthusiasm. She has a uniquely tuned native curiosity that allows her to see how the micro connects to the macro. She moved on to the Boson Phoenix, the Boston Globe, Vogue and Rolling Stone, writing for many other venues along the way. She has been a New Yorker staff writer since 1992. “I like going places that other people may not be interested in going. I have this fantasy — this would be almost impossible, but I’d love to walk the length of Ventura Boulevard,” she says. “I feel like it’s this insane, huge, pulsing artery — I just want to look in, what is this crazy shop? What’s this weird little restaurant? It’s the Broadway of L.A., or it feels that way to me — so much going on.” Ever since that long-ago story in Oregon, she’s been driven by an enthusiastic, unbounded curiosity — a symptom she embraces. “I’m not looking for anything in particular. I just love exploring, and I love cities. And I also love country,” she says. “I guess I kind of love everything.”

Questions and answers with guitarist Andy McKee By Trevan McGee

To simply hear Topeka guitarist Andy McKee play does not adequately describe what the artist puts into his songs. As a fingerstyle player, McKee must juggle the melody, harmony and rhythm sections all on his own and all from a single instrument. As a result, McKee has to take advantage of both his entire body and his entire instrument in order to create lush soundscapes that fill his records. It comes as no surprise then that YouTube played a large part in McKee’s international prominence. “Drifting,” a staple of his catalog, boasts more than 40 million views and several other songs claim views in the seven- and eight-figure range. This Thursday McKee and fellow guitarists Stephen Bennett and Antione Dufour are set to play at the Lawrence Arts Center, 940 N.H., on the third stop of their Guitar Masters tour that will take them through the Midwest before headSpecial to the Journal-World ing south and working its way through the Northeast.

Topeka poet releases collection of sonnets inspired by pregnancy By Sarah Henning

Parents are partners in everything having to do with their children. They can cuddle, discipline and protect all the same. But in that partnership there is one thing that men can’t do, of course: carry the baby. Topeka poet Matt Porubsky explores a man’s experience during the wonder, mystery and unpredictable nature of his beloved’s pregnancy in a new book of poetry released by Woodley Press. In “Fire Mobile (the pregnancy sonnets),” the Kansas University graduate “calls us to reclaim the beauty of the human body, gestation and birth,” says Poet Laureate of Kansas and Lawrence resident Caryn Mirriam-Goldberg. “What makes this book particularly astonishing is that its generative and generous celebration of the sacred feminine was written by a man, who, in writing

this, shows us the hardwon and shining soul of real love,” Mirriam-Goldberg says. Porubsky, who directed the 2009 documentary “Porubsky’s Transcendent Deli,” will be reading from his new collection at 7 p.m., Monday, Oct. 10, at The Raven Book Store, 6 E. Seventh St. The reading and book release celebration is free and will also feature poet and “Fire Mobile” book illustrator Stella Robbins and Porubsky’s wife and fellow poet, Leah Sewell. “My poetry roots began in Lawrence,” Porubsky says. “The streets through town and on campus are flush with creative memories. I have been to many readings at the Raven, but have never had my own. I can’t think of a more meaningful place for me to have a book release.” — Staff writer Sarah Henning can be reached at 832-7187.

few months of playing guitar I had that feeling that I had to do something with it. But it wasn’t a distinct moment like, “Ah I’ve got to do this.” TM: What’s the biggest challenge of playing guitar the way you do now? AM: Trying to cover all of the bases on one guitar and keep an interesting melodic idea going and have chords behind it and some sort of rhythmic pattern behind it as well. That’s the challenge of it and over the course of trying to make that happen you can develop new techniques and ideas to make it all come together. That’s where percussive ideas or fretting the guitar with your right hand or doing harmonics by slapping the guitar neck with your right hand, things like that (come from. Using these different tunings with the guitar definitely helps with that too because it facilitates certain chord shapes that wouldn’t be possible on a standard guitar. All of these sort of things that look sort of unusual, it’s all there to make it possible to make these full-sounding songs with melodic, harmonic and rhythmic ideas going on. TM: The tour hasn’t started yet, but can you give potential patrons an idea of what they can expect? AM: Most of the shows are around 300- to 500-seat venues. I always like to engage the audience and since I’m always changing my guitar tunings in shows, you have to develop this ability to talk to the audience and engage them, otherwise you’re just standing there tuning your guitar and it’s pretty boring for everybody. The format will be Antione and then Stephen and then me and then we’re going to do some collaborative stuff at the end of the night when all three of us will play together and bring some new ideas to each of our songs. I’m looking forward to the tour and looking forward to playing in Lawrence again. It’s been quite awhile, I think over a year since I played in Lawrence, so it should be fun.

WHEN SKUNKS DIG HOLES IN YOUR YARD, they are looking for food. You may have a high population of grubs or other insects.

Skunks create bigger problems than their odor


n addition to putting fear in the hearts of full-grown men and women, skunks sometimes cause problems in the urban landscape. Striped skunks, the most common species in Kansas, dig holes in lawns and gardens in search of insects to eat and sometimes burrow under porches and buildings for shelter. They may tear into the garbage, kill chickens and destroy beehives. Striped skunks are also the primary carriers of rabies in the Midwest. Skunk inquiries come to the horticulture hotline less frequently than ants and dead pine trees, but the questions are urgent when they arrive. The most common calls are about skunks under porches and buildings. Because prevention is easier than removal, keep foundation openings sealed. Wire mesh or sheet metal can be used to seal openings and window wells. Sealing off any under porch and crawlspace openings is a bit easier said than done, but do you really want to take a chance of a skunk moving in under your house? In my experience, I knew I had a problem with a

critter trying to create a den in my crawlspace. Silly foxes or maybe a stray cat, I thought. I didn’t worry too much about the critter until the day I came eye-to-eye with a skunk who was a little upset about being barred. Luckily, my dog and I both escaped from being sprayed. After the opening was successfully sealed, the skunk has stayed away. If a skunk does try to share your residence, some professional pest control companies will remove them for you. Your other options are limited to: waiting for it to leave; trying to scare it away (if you dare); moth balls, moth flakes or ammonia-soaked

Dried fruit, peanut butter, mayonnaise, honey and molasses placed on bread are more likely to attract skunks than innocent kitties. In the small, dark trap, skunks are unlikely to spray but captured skunks should still be approached with caution. Please remember if you choose to trap a skunk you will need to dispose of it, and relocation is not the best answer. Even a healthy-looking skunk may be infected with rabies that you would then transport to a new location. Kansas State University recommends placing a tarp or plastic sheet over the trap, sealing the edges with soil and piping in carbon dioxide gas from a pressurized cylinder or using dry ice which emits carbon dioxide. — Jennifer Smith is the Horticulture Extension Agent for K-State Research and Extension in Douglas County.

Kovel’s Antiques: ‘Big’ market for fortune-telling machines By Terry Kovel

Zoltar the Fortune Teller is the coin-operated machine in the movie “Big” that changed Tom Hanks’s character into a grownup. The publicity from the movie created a market for the machine and copies were made in the 1960s and 1970s. Coin-operated fortunetelling machines were popular at amusement parks and penny arcades in the 1930s and after. They featured exotic figures like gypsies, mummies, skulls,


devils or wizards, as well as old women and Puss-inBoots — any character that seemed magical. There also is a fortune-telling machine named Zoltan that often is confused with Zoltar. The name “Zoltan” may have come from the Hungarian word for Sultan and the figure is dressed like a sultan. The first fortune-telling machines probably were made in the 1890s, and the first electric coin-operated machines in about 1910. Experts say that Zoltan was introduced in

1965 and that only 50 or 60 were made. After the movie “Big” came out, some reproductions were made of fiberglass. A dime went in the slot. Later models required a quarter. Most of these coin-operated fortune-telling machines sell for high prices today, about $3,000 to $5,000. But recently a possibly unique Gypsy fortune-telling machine that talks made the news. It is different from others. The Gypsy figure is not inside a glass box and she doesn’t nod or point to a fortune printed

on a card. She actually has a voice. The state of Montana owns the Gypsy and a Montana spokesman said it will not be sold even though the state has apparently been offered more than $1 million for it. Q: I have a pine colonialstyle rocker. The top is decorated in a muted gold floral pattern. It was manufactured by L & Z Kamman Co. of Gardner, Mass. What is its value? A: Brothers Lee D. Kamman and Zora R. Kamman


and their father, I.B. Kamman, founded L & Z Kamman Co. in 1946. The company designed and manufactured chairs. Many were decorated by hand. L & Z Kamman made the chairs for the renovated Ford’s Theatre in Washington, D.C., in the 1960s. The company went out of business in about 1991. Your chair is not old enough to be an antique and it was not made by a famous company. So it would sell as used furniture for about one-third the cost of a new A ZOLTAN FORTUNE-TELLER rocker.

Longtime friendship sunk by alcohol use Dear Annie: My husband and I have been friends with “Ed and Bonnie” for many years. We were in each other’s weddings, our kids are the same age, we have taken vacations together, and on and on. My problem now is Ed’s drinking. He has always been a heavy drinker, although it never bothered me before. We would frequently imbibe together as a foursome and stay the night so no one would drive drunk. However, since the birth of my second child, I have pretty much cut out alcohol altogether, and now I find it difficult to socialize with people who drink so much. Ed never wants to do anything that involves the children because it means he won’t be able to drink. We only see each other at our house or theirs. The last time they came over, they stayed more than eight hours, and I discovered later that Ed was doing shots in our basement. If we go to their house, we are teased if we leave before a similar number of hours have passed. Bonnie isn’t bothered by this. She accepts Ed as he is. I can’t say anything to Ed, because he bristles. This has become awkward for me. I hate to lose such good friends, but I no longer look forward to seeing them, as I know it

Annie’s Mailbox

I felt very put out about the whole seating arrangement, but didn’t feel it was appropriate to say anything at this sad affair. Is this type of seating considered the norm today? Should I forget that it was an insult to the blood family to be seated in this manner? Please set my mind at ease. — Sad Father Dear Sad: We are so sorry for your loss.

Engage your brain, or not Who said television was mindless? National Geographic devotes three hours tonight to “Brain Games” (7 p.m. to 10 p.m.), a celebration of that most super of computers we all rely on for every waking thought and sensation. Our brains are so busy that they often make shortcuts and filter out unneeded stimuli in order to make sense of the perceivable world. Illusionist David Copperfield appears in “Pay Attention!” (9 p.m.) to demonstrate how peoples’ focus can be deliberately distracted for the sake of entertainment like his, or for the benefit of pickpockets and thieves. ‘‘Watch This!” (8 p.m.) shows how Hollywood filmmakers and special effects wizards have turned illusion and delusion into a science. Part three, “Remember This!” (10 p.m.), shows how human memory is subject to the mind’s tricks and how the storage of memories — both short-term and long — is so essential to our identity and personality. It also explores the nature of so-called eyewitness accounts and how 20 witnesses can claim, even swear, to have seen something different.

Of course some people don’t use their brains at all. And for them, there are programs like “Kim’s Fairytale Wedding: A Kardashian Event” (7 p.m., E!).

As of this writing, “The Simpsons,” one of the smartest shows ever created, is faced with a contract dispute that may make this the final season. That would be sad. Worse still, the absence of “The Simpsons” would probably make room for some new Seth MacFarlane concoction along the lines of “American Dad.” For years I suspected that the difference in audiences for “The Simpsons” and “Family Guy” and its spawn was strictly generational. But the real distinction is about literacy. “The Simpsons” is written by and for people who read books, magazines and newspapers and show an interest in a wider world. “Family Guy” and its ilk depend almost entirely on appealing to viewers whose only frame of reference is television, blockbuster movies and ephemeral pop culture. There’s a vast difference in both references and appeal. And that makes the possibility of losing “The Simpsons” an unfortunate prospect for the thinking viewer.

Tonight’s other highlights

Scheduled on “60 Minutes” (6 p.m., CBS): Egypt’s military rule; profiles of NFL agent Drew Rosenhaus and White House jobs adviser Jeffrey Immelt.

The Atlanta Falcons host the Green Bay Packers on “Sunday Night Football” (7 p.m., NBC).

Game Two of the American League Championship Series (7 p.m., Fox).

Court-ordered mediation on “The Good Wife” (8 p.m., CBS).

Mike becomes suspicious on “Desperate Housewives” (8 p.m., ABC).

Margaret opens up a bit about her past as Lucy (Paz de la Huerta) balks at her incarceration on “Boardwalk Empire” (8 p.m., HBO).

Once upon a time on “Dexter” (8 p.m., Showtime).

Maggie plans to meet the president on “Pan Am” (9 p.m., ABC).

Walt enlists an unlikely ally on the season finale of “Breaking Bad” (9 p.m., AMC).

New evidence leads to continued surveillance on “Homeland” (9 p.m., Showtime).

iTunes great for Apple, but was it for music biz? By Nekesa Mumbi Moody Associated Press

NEW YORK — When Apple rolled out iTunes for the masses in the spring of 2003, the music industry was at a point of transition — and chaos. Entering the new millennium, albums were enjoying blockbuster sales of several million units for its superstar artists, and profits were booming. Yet the threat of Napster and other forms of illegal downloading threatened to eviscerate those profits as many music fans were starting to get used to the idea that music, and loads of it, could be free. Apple’s iTunes entered into that landscape with a concept that wasn’t exactly new: a system where you could pay for songs online. Yet iTunes, with its simple interface, its simple concept — 99 cents per song — and revolutionary MP3 device, the iPod, made it the golden standard. The entry of Apple and its leader, Steve Jobs, who died Wednesday, into the music world was more than a success — it was a phenomenon. Today, iTunes is the largest music retailer, has redefined the listening experience and has largely become the way that music is consumed. What’s less clear is how much the music industry — which is continuing to decline — has benefited. Even today, consensus is mixed. “It really did remind an entire industry, and gave a cue to even a culture beyond the industry that if you provided music in a convenient, direct way and responded to the consumers’ interest and demands, they would in fact buy it, especially if it was priced appropriately,” said James Diener, CEO and President of A&M/ Octone Records. “It forced change in a posi-

IN THIS JAN. 6, 2004, FILE PHOTO, APPLE CEO STEVE JOBS DISPLAYS the iPod mini at the Macworld Conference and Expo in San Francisco. Today, iTunes owns the majority of the digital sales market, has redefined listening experience, and has for all purposes become the way that music is consumed. tive way. People who are critical of what iTunes may have done perhaps have short memories and don’t realize that the alternative at the time was that an enormous amount of music was leaking onto the Internet and being consumed for free,” Diener added. “The alternative was to inspire people to buy music, and to go to a digital retail site. ... That was a remarkable step forward.” Apple introduced iTunes in 2001, a few months before it would release the nowubiquitous iPod (which begat the iPod Nano, the iPhone, the iPad). At the time, it was not a music store but a rip-and-burn library service only available for Mac users. It initially was viewed with great skepticism by record

companies for its ability to make digital copies of music — something the industry thought would lead to piracy. The industry had a lot to protect. It was enjoying booming sales at the turn of the last century, fueled by the success of teen sensations like Britney Spears, the Backstreet Boys and ‘N Sync. But it was just starting to feel the effects of the illegal downloading era: The top-selling album of that year, Linkin Park’s “Hybrid Theory,” sold 4.8 million, down from 2000’s top-seller, ‘N Sync’s “No Strings Attached,” which sold almost 8 million a year before. “That was at the same time we were confronting Napster, we were confronting the beginnings of the global piracy epidemic that was to

come,” said Jim Donio, president of the National Association of Recording Merchandisers, or NARM. “At the same moment of time, we were also experiencing the biggest weekly sales of all time. It was a very odd confluence of events, because you had the harbinger of immense challenges, but at the same time, reaping the rewards of incredible record breaking physical sales. ... It was heated, it was tense.” When Apple’s iTunes became a full-service online music store in 2003, it offered more than 200,000 songs that could be loaded on your iPod and fully portable, all for 99 cents a download, no matter who the artist was (in recent years, it has allowed for more variation, with some singles

now costing $1.29 per song). Bill Werde, editorial director at Billboard, said that while other services were available at the time, the genius of Jobs was making iTunes the ultimate consumer destination. “He created the retail experience that most people know now. He focused on the fan, he focused on the user experience, he didn’t focus on rights and complicated pricing schemes. He focused just on what would be simple and what would be easy for a music fan to do, and what would be good for a music fan to experience,” Werde said. “You look around today, we sell tens of millions of digital tracks each year,” he continued. “Given that Apple has an 80 percent, 70 percent market share in that digital space when it comes to downloads, you really see how important Apple has become in selling music to music fans.” For all of iTunes’ success, the music industry is still floundering. While sales are up slightly this year, the industry has been on a dramatic decline for the past decade, as labels have been shuttered and thousands of jobs lost as it continues to contract. While digital downloads continue to explode, overall album sales have dropped by at least half. “Steve Jobs leaves behind a little bit of a complex legacy,” Werde said. “He helped create what we think of today as the legal digital music market, which is a substantial music market around the world. But at the same time, the music business in the retail space is probably worth about half of what it was worth ten years ago, so I don’t know that anyone saved the music business,” he said. “No one has yet solved the problem that music can still be free.”

‘Zombie’ long-term care program cuts deficit By Ricardo Alonso-Zaldivar Associated Press

MIMES GESTURE AS THEY STAND IN A CROSSWALK Friday in Caracas, Venezuela. The mayor of the city’s eastern district of Sucre has launched a unique program aimed to encourage civility among reckless drivers and careless pedestrians, putting 120 mimes at intersections to politely and silently scold violators.

Shhh! Mimes tackle traffic in Venezuela By Christopher Toothaker Associated Press

CARACAS, VENEZUELA — A part of Venezuela’s capital is giving dangerous drivers the silent treatment, sending mimes into the streets to do what police alone have not: tame the lawless traffic. About 120 mimes dressed in clown-like outfits and white gloves took to the streets of the Sucre district this past week, wagging their fingers at traffic violators and at pedestrians who streaked across busy avenues rather than waiting at crosswalks. They found plenty to keep them busy in a city where motorcycle riders roar down sidewalks, buses drop passengers in the middle of busy streets and drivers treat red lights and speed limits as suggestions rather than orders. “Most people are collaborating, but bad habits are usually hard to break and some drivers just don’t change their ways,” said Neidy Suarez, an 18-year-old mime wearing fluorescent yellow overalls and a bright red ribbon wrapped around her pigtails. Suarez frowned, thrust her hands forward in a “stop” motion and then pointed to a red light as a motorcyclist raced toward a crosswalk filled with pedestrians. “Some people get angry

when we reprimand them,” Suarez said. Some drivers have shouted insults after a silent rebuke. “But most people react agreeably and some have offered compliments,” Suarez said, raising her voice from time to time so she would be heard amid the honking horns, ambulance sirens, rumbling bus engines and music throbbing from car stereos. Mayor Carlos Ocariz of Sucre, in the eastern part of Caracas, turned to the mimes to encourage civility among reckless drivers and careless pedestrians. He is following the example of Antanas Mockus, a former mayor of Bogota, Colombia, who combined mimes and stricter police enforcement in a program that was widely seen as a success. Caracas’ streets, though, may be even more chaotic than those of Colombia’s capital. Drivers who miss a highway exit often simply put their cars in reverse and return through oncoming traffic. Motorbike riders charge the wrong way up one-way streets and honk pedestrians aside as they roar onto sidewalks, sometimes with small children tucked precariously between an adult passenger and driver.

WASHINGTON — They’re calling it the zombie in the budget. It’s a long-term care plan the Obama administration has put on hold, fearing it could go bust if actually implemented. Yet while the program exists on paper, monthly premiums the government may never collect count as reducing federal deficits. Real or not, that’s $80 billion over the next 10 years. The Community Living Assistance Services and Supports program, CLASS for short, may just keep lurching along indefinitely. It would join other peculiar creatures of the federal budget such as “trust funds” that are actually more like IOUs and Medicare cuts that can be counted twice. “It’s a gimmick that produces phantom savings,” said Robert Bixby, executive director of the Concord Coalition, a nonpartisan group that advocates deficit control.. “That money should have never been counted as defi-

cit reduction because it was supposed to be set aside to pay for benefits,” Bixby added. “The fact that they’re not actually doing anything with the program sort of compounds the gimmick.” The program was created under President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul, and arguably provided much of the 10-year, $143 billion in savings claimed under the law. But now some Capitol Hill aides have dubbed CLASS a “budget zombie.” The administration recently asked Congress to hold off on money for implementing CLASS as it tries to find a way to make it solvent for the long run. The chief financial expert for CLASS left the government, saying the program’s staff was abruptly reassigned. CLASS was a priority of the late Democratic Sen. Edward M. Kennedy of Massachusetts, who envisioned a voluntary, long-term care insurance plan sponsored by the government, without the overhead costs of private insurers, or the rigorous prescreening they require. CLASS beneficiaries

would pay an affordable monthly premium while they were healthy and working. In exchange, they could collect a modest daily cash benefit if they became disabled. Congress included CLASS in the health care law, specifying it must be self-sustaining. Kennedy’s idea was to give families some financial breathing room. The burden of long-term care is growing. Most families cannot afford to hire a home health aide for a frail elder, let alone pay nursing home bills. Longterm care is usually provided by family members, often a spouse who may also have health problems. But a central design flaw dogged CLASS from the beginning. Unless large numbers of healthy people willingly sign up during their working years, soaring premiums driven by the needs of disabled beneficiaries would destabilize it, eventually requiring a taxpayer bailout. The main reason the program produced budget savings in its first 10 years was a rule that enrollees pay in for at least five years before collecting benefits.

Romney responds to Mormon flare-up; Perry passes By Charles Babington and Kasie Hunt Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney on Saturday denounced “poisonous language” against faiths as he grappled with a flare-up over religion sparked by a prominent supporter of Texas Gov. Rick Perry, his rival. Perry steered well clear of that simmering issue and pushed another hot button instead: Social Security. Romney, in remarks to the Values Voters Summit, a gathering of cultural conservatives in Washington, did not directly confront the words of a prominent Perry supporter who called Romney’s Mormon faith a “cult.” Indeed, Romney was criticizing another speaker at the meeting who Perry is known for anti-Mormon and anti-Muslim rhetoric, and who followed him on stage. But his cautionary words served as notice that at- Romney tacks on faiths should, in his view, be off the table. He appealed to the social conservatives to support a presidential candidate who has the best record on the economy. Until now, Romney’s Mormon faith and Perry’s evangelical Christianity were secondary to a GOP primary focused on who can best fix the country’s economy. Questions about his faith plagued Romney’s 2008 presidential run, but he had been able to keep them at bay so far this time. That changed when a pastor who introduced Perry to cultural conservatives called Mormonism a “cult” and said Romney is “not a Christian,” forcing Perry to distance himself and Romney to respond. Perry, campaigning Saturday in Iowa’s staunchly conservative northwest, barely touched on religion at all. In stops at Sioux City and Orange City, he never mentioned Mormonism, Romney by name, or even Christianity, for that matter. Asked by Republican Steven Bernston what books have most influenced him, Perry mentioned only one: the work of conservative economist Friedrich Hayek. Bersnton, a corn and beans farmer from Paullina, later said he was surprised that Perry didn’t at least mention the Bible. “I don’t think he’s a reader,” Bernston said in an interview, noting that Perry used the question to switch to previous statements about his opposition to government efforts to stimulate the economy.

Special ops, CIA first in, last out of Afghanistan By Kimberly Dozier Associated Press

FORT BRAGG, N.C. — They were the first Americans into Afghanistan after the Sept. 11 attacks and will probably be the last U.S. forces to leave. As most American troops prepare to withdraw in 2014, the CIA and military special operations forces to be left behind are girding for the next great pivot of the campaign, one that could stretch their war up to another decade. The war’s 10th anniversary Friday recalled the beginnings of a conflict that drove the Taliban from power and lasted far longer than was imagined. “We put a CIA guy in first,” scant weeks after the towers in New York fell, said Lt. Gen. John Mulholland, then a colonel with U.S. special op-

erations forces, in charge of the military side of the operation. U.S. Special Forces Green Berets, together with CIA officers, helped coordinate antiTaliban forces on the ground with U.S. firepower from the air, to topple the Taliban and close in on al-Qaida. Recent remarks from the White House suggest the CIA and special operations forces will be hunting al-Qaida and working with local forces long after most U.S. troops have left. When Afghan troops take the lead in 2014, “the U.S. remaining force will be basically an enduring presence force focused on counterterrorism,” said National Security Advisor Tom Donilon, in remarks in Washington in mid-September. That will be augmented by teams that will continue to train Afghan

forces, added White House spokesman Tommy Vietor. The White House insists this does not mean abandoning the strategy of counterinsurgency, in which large numbers of troops are needed to keep the population safe. It simply means replacing the surge of 33,000 U.S. troops, as it withdraws over the next year, with newly trained Afghan ones, according to senior White House Afghan war adviser Doug Lute It also means U.S. special operators and CIA officers will be there for the next turn in the campaign. That’s the moment when Afghans will either prove themselves able to withstand a promised Taliban resurgence, or find themselves overwhelmed by seasoned Taliban fighters. “We’re moving toward an

increased special operations role,” together with U.S. intelligence, Mulholland said, “whether it’s counterterrorism-centric, or counterterrorism blended with counterinsurgency.” As out-going head of U.S. Army Special Operations Command, Mulholland has been in charge of feeding a steady stream of troops to commanders in the field. He knows they need as many special operations troops as he can produce and send. Those special operations forces under his command include U.S. Army Rangers, known for their raiding operations against militant targets, and U.S. Special Forces Green Berets, whose stock in trade is teaching local forces to fight a common enemy so the U.S. doesn’t have to.
