KATHY SHUCK, WHO LIVES JUST OFF U.S. HIGHWAY 59 IN PLEASANT GROVE, SETS a cap stone as she rebuilds a fence on her property. Shuck says that vehicles coming from the highway have hit her fence more than 30 times, and each time she has to rebuild it.

tered plastic are scattered across a patch of Kathy Shuck’s yard. They are the remnants of a crash that occurred four months ago when a driver fell asleep at the wheel, missed a sharp curve and drove off U.S. Highway 59 straight into Shuck’s yard. He took out nearly 100 feet of fence before he stopped upside down in a nearby field. Right after the accident, Shuck’s Pleasant Grove neighbors began taking bets on just how long the rebuilt fence would stay up. The low bet was 60 days. The guess doesn’t seem that wild when Shuck tells you her fence has been hit more than 30 times.

TOPEKA — Gov. Sam Brownback has promised to tackle just about every major aspect of state government in the legislative session that starts in January. “It’s a big session, but we have a lot of needs,” Brownback said recently. Asked if it may be a good time to ask the Republicandominated Legislature to refrain from the controversial issues of immigration and abortion, Brownback, a Republican, said, “They’ll decide what they want to do on topics. We have a full-load agenda for the Legislature.” On the issue of immigration, a group of Protestant and Catholic leaders has asked the Legislature to leave the matter to the federal government. But Kansas Secretary of

State Kris Kobach, a Republican and national leader on passing anti-illegal immigration legislation in multiple Brownback states, said that isn’t going to happen. There will be legislation aimed at stopping illegal immigration in Kansas during the Kobach 2012 session, Kobach said. “I think one of the reasons is that there is just so much demand for it from constituents,” he said. Also, he said, an E-Verify bill that has failed in the past in the Kansas Legislature is more likely to gain acceptance because of a U.S. Supreme Court decision in May that upheld an Arizona law that requires employers use the E-Verify database system

attributes most of the accidents to folks going too fast or being too drunk. “If they just drove the speed limit we wouldn’t have any problems,” she said. To be fair, Shuck has kept an eye on the fence for the past 60 years. Shuck grew up in the home, but that was when the road was a two-lane highway and not well-traveled. “When I was young, they never hit the fence. We would put our feet on the fence and watch a car go by every five minutes,” she said. Over the years that’s changed. What used to be an accident every

The last home in the hamlet of Pleasant Grove, the home is at the top of a hill, at the start of a significant curve and right before a passing lane ends. Standing in her yard and watching the cars fly by, it’s easy to understand how cars that miss the curve land in Shuck’s yard. “The accidents I’ve worked there

against a principal he said was “a big-time racist” who had kicked out several of his friends from school. The Molotov cocktail was intended for use in the bathroom, but Willmott said he didn’t think he would’ve actually used it. It was “pretty dumb, obviously,” he said today. 5) Enrolled in a private school, St. Xavier, after getting expelled from the public school. “If I hadn’t done the Molotov cocktail, I don’t think I would’ve gone to college,” he said. 6) Became not only the first in his family to graduate from college (at Marymount College in Salina), but also the first in his family to buy a car. 7) Saw a movie camera up close for the first time on the first day of filming for his movie “Ninth Street.” 8) Started a homeless shelter in Junction City and became a community organizer, leading protests that led to the integration of the fire department.

9) Sold a screenplay, “Shields Green and the Gospel of John Brown,” to 20th Century Fox with co-writer Mitch Bryan, which sparked his screenwriting career. They never made the movie, but the proceeds enabled him to finish his first movie. 10) Used stock footage in several parts of “CSA: The Confederate States of America” and went back and bought rights to the footage for himself using some of the first money the movie made. Today, he tells his students not to let obstacles like that stand in their way. During the years he made the film, he said he never had more than $5,000 in the movie’s budget at any one time. 11) Received hundreds of letters and emails reacting negatively to his film, “falling just barely short of threatening my life,” he said. “That reminds you of the power of what you’re doing,” he said. “Something that’s not true, but it teaches truth in a way, it forces them to re-evaluate their position, which often leads them to be quite upset.” 12) Named film company, Hodcarrier Films, after his father, who worked as a hod



two years turned into one once a year, and even that number seems to have grown. She’s had two years in a row where cars came through the fence on Mother’s Day. One time she was planting flowers, heard a loud crash and looked up to see a car that had hit the fence and popped up into the air. It crashed upside down before she could move. When she did get up, Shuck ran to get a hose to help put out a fire that had broken out. Fortunately, a nurse and paramedic stopped to help the woman out of the car. In the second-to-last accident, Shuck came outside to find a motorcyclist lying alongside the road without a helmet and barely breathing. He was taken away by an air ambulance. “You never know who they are, and you don’t know what

During the 2011 session, legislation similar to another Arizona anti-illegal immigration law, and a bill to repeal in-state tuition for some undocumented students, was under consideration. Kobach has been a driving force behind both measures. But advancement of those bills ground to a halt amid a national furor about remarks made

He remembers walking back in the dark after the ending scene featuring the hanging of the murderers in the movie. “He’s not comforting anybody,” he said of his father. “I was just in shock. This was a grown-up film.” 14) Heard his fourth-grade teacher tell him that they wouldn’t be talking about the Martin Luther King Jr. assassination.

ney general’s office under Schmidt’s predecessor, and Schmidt said he wants to avoid a conflict of interest. Also, the state capital is in Shawnee County. But Barta’s findings would go to District Attorney Chad Taylor, a Democrat, who won his office in 2008 by defeating a top deputy to former prosecutor Phill Kline, a Republican abortion opponent who filed the Planned Parenthood case in 2007. Taylor made his opponent’s ties to Kline a major issue in the campaign. “It’s definitely going to be a concern at some point,” said Mary Kay Culp, executive director of the anti-abortion group Kansans for Life. Kline said Taylor should remove himself from any potential prosecution because statements by Taylor during the 2008 campaign represented criticism of Kline’s prosecution of Planned Parenthood. But Taylor spokesman Dakota Loomis said such comments are premature, along with speculation about how

Taylor would handle the sheriff’s findings. “We don’t even have reports to view,” he said. “We’ll wait to see what gets sent to our office.” Kline began investigating abortion providers in 2003, while Kansas attorney general. He continued his investigation after losing his race for re-election in 2006 and becoming Johnson County district attorney. He held the county job from 2007 to 2009, losing the 2008 Republican primary to current District Attorney Steve Howe. Kline filed 107 criminal charges in October 2007 against the Planned Parenthood clinic. Forty-nine counts, now dismissed, were tied to allegations of falsifying abortion reports. The reports were filed by the clinic in 2003 with the state health department, and Kline, as attorney general, obtained copies from the agency in 2004. The clinic produced yet another set to a Shawnee County judge in 2006, as Kline’s investigation continued.

they will do,” Shuck said of the unexpected visitors who barrel through her fence. But Shuck said she’s lucky if the driver sticks around. A lot of times, they try to flee the scene, leaving behind a broken fence and a costly bill. Two years ago, Shuck turned a 2-and-a-half-foothigh boulder fence into one made of rock pillars with plastic white pickets in between. She made sure it was a breakaway fence so when cars hit it, pieces would go flying, decreasing the chances of serious injury. She also designed it so the pieces would be easier to put back together, which she had to do three times since it went up. “I built it the way it is so I can rebuild it, but I’m getting slower,” Shuck said. Sometimes her children or even the folks who hit the fence help her rebuild. Despite the burden of rebuilding, Shuck said she doesn’t want to get rid of the fence, mainly because it’s a

barricade between her home and the road. Shuck said her family has talked to the Kansas Department of Transportation about putting up a guardrail. But the state agency told her the guardrail would be too dangerous because it could throw cars back into the flow of traffic. When KDOT opens the expanded U.S. Highway 59, Shuck hopes traffic will be diverted away from the road that runs by her house. But she has her doubts. “It is hard to say. A lot of it is drunks. And you figure with the other highway, they are going to stay on this road so they don’t get caught,” she said. She’s offered law enforcement officers the chance to sit in her yard to nab speeders. The speed limit through Pleasant Grove is posted as 40 miles per hour, but Shuck said most cars go 60. “All I ask is for drivers to slow down,” she said.

During a House Appropriations Committee meeting, Peck compared il- LEGISLATURE legal immigrants to feral hogs and said perhaps the state should shoot them from helicopters. He later said he was joking and then apologized under pressure from Republican leaders. In the 2012 session, Brownback will forward to the Legislature proposals to make major changes in taxes, Medicaid and school finance, in

addition to the annual fight over state spending. All are guaranteed to generate much discussion. And the Legislature will also deal with funding problems with the public pension system, and the once-a-decade process of redrawing congressional, legislative and State Board of Education district boundaries. But Kobach said he doesn’t see anti-illegal immigration legislation getting crowded out because of all the other issues. The Legislature, he said, “can multitask.”

But after filming CSA, Lee called him. They worked together on another film afterward. “I tell my students it’s an example of how you have to go out and do things,” he said, and can’t just expect that good things will come your way. 16) Tried to share his experiences and counsel to the students with whom he interacts as a professor. “You have to define success on your own terms,” he

Board to review state’s finance, achievement levels

Berlusconi, Italian premier, resigns

By Mark Fagan

A chorus of Handel’s “Alleluia” rang out Saturday as Silvio Berlusconi resigned as Italian premier, ending a tumultuous 17-year political era and setting in motion a transition aimed at bringing the country back from the brink of economic crisis. Berlusconi stepped down amid jeers, cheers and heckles of “Buffoon” from thousands of people who packed downtown Rome to witness his government’s downfall after a stunning week of market turmoil that upended his defiant hold on power and threatened to tear apart the eurozone. Respected former European commissioner Mario Monti remained the top choice to try to steer the country out of its debt woes as the head of a transitional government. But the job is Herculean, given the enormity of reforms required and Italy’s oftenparalyzed parliament. President Giorgio Napolitano will hold consultations this morning with each of Italy’s main political forces before proceeding with the expected request that Monti try to form a new government.

Obama seeks help on Iran Searching for help, President Barack Obama lobbied the skeptical leaders of Russia and China today for support in keeping Iran from becoming a nuclear-armed menace to the world, hoping to yield a “common response” to a deepening problem. Yet Obama’s talk of solidarity with Russian President Dmitry Medvedev and Chinese President Hu Jintao was not publicly echoed by either man as Iran moved anew to the fore of the international stage. The United States’ vast worries about Iran grew starker with a report this week by the U.N. atomic agency that asserted in the strongest terms yet Iran is conducting secret work with the sole intent of developing nuclear arms. The U.S. claims a nuclear-armed Iran could set off an arms race among rival states and directly threaten Israel. Russia and China remain a roadblock to the United States in its push to tighten international sanctions on Iran. Both are veto-wielding members of the U.N. Security Council and have shown no sign the new report will change their stand.

Arab League votes to suspend Syria In a surprisingly sharp move, the Arab League voted Saturday to suspend Syria over the country’s bloody crackdown on an eight-month uprising and stepped up calls on the army to stop killing civilians. The decision was a humiliating blow to a regime that prides itself as a bastion of Arab nationalism, but it was unlikely to immediately end a wave of violence that the U.N. estimates has killed more than 3,500 people since mid-March. In Damascus, pro-regime demonstrators threw eggs and tomatoes at the Qatari embassy to protest the vote. The 22-member Arab League will monitor the situation and revisit the decision in a meeting Wednesday in the Moroccan capital Rabat, bin Jassim said, a move that appeared to give Syrian President Bashar Assad time to avert the suspension. 4 | WASHINGTON, D.C.

Iran group says blast hits missile base An explosion at a Revolutionary Guard ammunition depot west of Tehran on Saturday killed at least 17 soldiers, including a senior commander of the powerful military force, Iranian officials said. Guard spokesman Gen. Ramazan Sharif said the blast occurred as the result of an accident during the transport of munitions at the base. The site is located outside Bidganeh village, 25 miles southwest of the capital. At least 17 Guard members were killed, state TV reported. The broadcast said 16 other soldiers were injured and hospitalized. Sharif said some of them were in critical condition. Earlier, Sharif had said that 27 soldiers were killed but later retracted his statement, explaining that the error was due to an illegible fax from officials at the site of the blast. Among those killed was Hasan Moghaddam, a senior Guard commander. While the explosion occurred during a time of heightened tension with Israel, the U.S. and other Western powers, Iranian lawmaker Parviz Soroori ruled out sabotage.

ROTC students hold vigil to honor veterans By Alex Garrison

They haven’t yet experienced service themselves, but that doesn’t mean they don’t understand the value of honoring the community’s veterans. About 100 Kansas University ROTC students participated in a 24-hour silent vigil in front of the campus’ three war memorials from 7 p.m. Friday to 7 p.m. Saturday. The volunteers stood in their dress uniforms, at attention when anyone else was nearby, for an hour or more. It’s an annual joint-services tradition and, though it takes place on campus, organizers said they hoped it would benefit the larger community as they celebrate the

service of the men and women in all branches who have come before them. Cadet Katherine Benson, a junior in Air Force ROTC, was a key organizer through her involvement with the Air Force’s community service group. The Veterans Day vigil is a bit of a logistical challenge — there are 144 posts to fill, and Benson had gotten little to no sleep as of Saturday afternoon. But she said the shifts she had completed gave her an interesting opportunity to think deeply about such lofty topics as honor and Kevin Anderson/Journal-World Photo bravery. “It’s one hour done out of respect ARMY ROTC CADET JEFFREY AHLE STANDS AT ATTENTION at the for those who have served and Vietnam Memorial on Kansas University’s campus Saturday as KU ROTC members from all military branches conducted a 24-hour Please see ROTC, page 4A vigil Saturday at the three war memorials along Memorial Drive.

Alpha BioSystems has developed a series of bacteria cocktails to stimulate plants and consume organic waste for farmers, gardeners and industries. The company has just 13 employees but sees a bright future. Company president Eric Borland projects sales growth at 1,000 percent during the next three to four years. The company doesn’t release actual sales figures. About two-thirds of sales are to agricultural users. It markets two related lines of products: Terra-One is applied to farm fields to aid crop growth. Safe-One helps breaks down the massive amounts of animal waste that accumulate at feedlots, dair-

Tallman is scheduled to present, review and discuss financing and achievement issues Monday, during the Lawrence school board’s meeting set for 7 p.m. at district headquarters, 110 McDonald Drive. His visit comes at the invitation of Vanessa Sanburn, a board member who heard Sanburn Tallman speak during a recent regional meeting conducted by Tallman’s association, which represents and advocates on behalf of school boards statewide. Using the most recent national information available, Tallman has set out to make viable comparisons in both achievement and finances. He said Kansas ranked No. 7 on the list for achievement, when averaging the state’s rankings in terms of 11 categories ranging from reading and math scores, to SAT and ACT performance, to graduation rates and eventual levels of educational attainment as adults. That’s solid standing, he said, especially with all the schools that rank higher each spending more than $10,000 per pupil, when taking into account base state aid, federal grants and other revenue sources, excluding capital expenses. Kansas checked in with

ies and chicken houses. Another quarter of its sales comes from a line of organic growth aids called Thrive that it sells through garden centers, including several in Wichita. Alpha BioSystems originated in the 1990s as a maker of biological products to up clean oil waste. Scott Schwindaman, a Wichitan who is president and CEO of Lubrication Engineers, bought Alpha BioSystems in 2007 because he saw the potential for the products, Borland said. It was Schwindaman who decided to change direction and push for faster growth. A small percentage of the company’s sales still come from a biological oil cleanup product called MicroClean, but Borland said the company really doesn’t have time to market it adequately. Now that the company has picked its direction, it’s starting to execute that strategy. Borland, who has a long history with some of Wichita’s best-known entrepreneurs — most recently with

the Hayes family’s former Fence Corp. — said coming to work is fun when your prospects are so good. “I’ve been in different companies where you go to endless meetings about what’s the new color for next year or how to get to two points of market share,” he said. “Here we come in every day and it is wide open in terms of what opportunity to work on next.” The company has a suite of offices, a warehouse and a lab in its building. In the lab, workers grow multiple, specific strains of bacteria. Borland said the product contains 18 to 30 species of bacteria, each with a specific functions. The bacteria work to break down constituents in the soil, making them more digestible to crops, he said. It is designed to work with chemical fertilizers. The company is working hard to identify distributors across the Midwest who already know local farmers. It now has 28, Borland said.

part of the vigil. “People say ‘thank you,’” he said. “But we haven’t done KANSAS anything yet,” Benson UNIVERSITY said. They both spoke of the “interesting experience” of being seen in their service uniforms and the subtle but present reactions to their vigils they see in the eyes of passersby. Many of their classmates don’t know they’re in ROTC — even Underwood’s room-

mate doesn’t seem to, he says — and many outside of its culture may be less attuned to the sacrifices of duty. So the ROTC students are quick to deflect attention from themselves back to their predecessors. After all, it’s giving respect to the veterans and those currently in active duty that makes the vigil worthwhile, Benson said. “It’s the least we could possibly do,” she said.

less than $10,000 per pupil. “We think this should be good news to parents and taxpayers and patrons because the resources we’re putting in are yielding very good results compared to other states,” Tallman said. Just where the numbers will go from here remains undetermined. Gov. Sam Brownback’s administration is discussing plans to give local districts more control over budget resources with the potential for districts to seek additional financing through local taxes that could be retained within each district. Tallman, who has worked for the association of school boards for more than 20 years, is taking a bit of a waitand-see approach.

“We think there’s some promising features, but there are a lot of concerns,” he said. “Until we see the actual numbers, it’s hard to see how it’s going to lay out.” Also on Monday’s meeting agenda: ! Receive reports regarding the district’s English as a Second Language and Native American Student Services programs. ! Receive a budget update from Kathy Johnson, the district’s division director for finance. ! Approve an open purchase order for laptops and open work stations.

TOPEKA (AP) — Yo-yo champion Jacob Deffenbaugh puts a little bit of martial arts and soccer into his tricks. Deffenbaugh, 23, is the 2011 Kansas yo-yo champion in the freehand division. Deffenbaugh started yoyoing as a fifth-grade student at Jay Shidler Elementary School in 1999. “Yo-yos were the cool thing to do,” he said. “I always had a yo-yo in my pocket at all times. Whenever I found a bit of quiet time, I would practice.” To start out, Deffenbaugh bought a red yo-yo and a copy of “The Klutz Yo-Yo Book.” “When I started, I practiced or trained to complete a scripted set of motions,” he said. “Now, I don’t practice, I play. I learned more advanced tricks from a DVD called ‘Cosmic Yo.’ There were tricks in it I didn’t think possible. I was dumbfounded.” Today, Deffenbaugh said he has personalized his yo-yo style by incorporating techniques in martial arts and soccer.

“My equipment and skills are at the point I don’t have to stick to a scripted set of motions,” he said. “I’m able to express myself with what I do and how I do it.” Deffenbaugh points to several books and sources on the Internet, such as www.kwos. ca, and, for those wanting to enhance their skills. Deffenbaugh began competing in 2007 in Indianapolis. Each year since, he has competed in a number of contests. His first win was on May 7 of this year at the first Kansas State Yo-Yo Contest in Bonner Springs. When he isn’t yo-yoing, Deffenbaugh is attending classes at Washburn University, where he is studying biology. He offers the following advice for those who might want to learn or get better. “Play a lot, make mistakes, compete with yourself and watch videos from around 2000 to 2001 on Duncan freehand,” Deffenbaugh said.

Wisconsin governor cancels appearance in Kansas WICHITA (AP) — Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, known for pushing a controversial law that effectively ended collective bargaining for most of his state’s public workers, has canceled plans to attend an upcoming Republican fundraiser in Kansas. Walker had been scheduled to appear with Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback and other Republican leaders at a Tuesday luncheon in Wichita, the Sedgwick County Republican To us, this Party’s w e b event was site said. symbolic of T i c k Scott Walker ets cost $1,000 to and people in his camp liter- $15,000. Nicole ally bringing his L a r s o n , plan of attack s p o k e s woman to Wichita.” for the Wiscon— Jake Lowen, politi- sin Recal director for the publican Wichita/Hutchinson Party, Labor Federation however, told The Wichita Eagle in an email that Walker “will no longer be appearing.” Larson did not explain why Walker canceled the appearance. The Republican governor is the subject of a recall effort organized by opponents of his union rights bill. Democrats and union leaders have said they will kick off a petition drive Tuesday to collect the more than 540,000 signatures needed to force a recall election. Jake Lowen, political director for the Wichita/ Hutchinson Labor Federation, said planned protests of Walker’s appearance may have influenced his decision to withdraw. He said protest organizers had support from all over the state because people feared Walker could use money raised in Kansas to fight the recall effort. “To us, this event was symbolic of Scott Walker and people in his camp literally bringing his plan of attack to Wichita,” Lowen said. But Terry Forsyth, chair of the Kansas Working Alliance, which worked with the labor federation to plan the protest, said other factors may have played a role in Walker’s decision not to come to Wichita, including the results of elections last week around the country and the upcoming recall petition drive in Wisconsin. Still, he said he’s pleased Walker won’t be showing up.

Sarah Stern got the news via Facebook. She saw a post, in Portuguese, from a woman she knew from a brief trip this summer. It contained the bombshell piece of news that would soon spread across international wires — that 35-year-old Antonio Bonfim Lopes had been arrested after years of having been hunted by Brazilian police in a Rio de Janeiro slum.

Hot dogs



“They’re here for a hot dog tonight, but maybe they’ll be back tomorrow for something more,” Pixler says. “And if not, that’s OK too.” !"!"!

Though Christianity is still the dominate religion in the United States, it is on the decline. From 1990 to 2008, the number of adults who called themselves Christians fell from 87 percent to 76 percent, according to the 2009 American Religious Identification Survey. Although a majority of young people still consider themselves religious, a 2010 study by the Pew Forum on Religion & Public Life found more than a quarter of 18- to 29-year-olds claimed no faith. For KU students who aren’t Christian, the face of the religion might be Topeka’s Westboro Baptist Church or Jed Smock, a fire and brimstone preacher from Columbia, Mo., better known as “Brother Jed.” Smock has been derided by KU students during his campus visits for saying things such as God created women to make babies and do housework. Members of Campus Christians say hot dog night is about breaking down those negative stereotypes about Christians being intolerant. “As Christians, we think that Jesus has called us to love our neighbor,” said Heather Jackson, a minister with the group. “We’re not handing out a tract, and we’re not making them listen to a message. We’re really just giving them something for free, and that’s how we interpret grace — that it’s absolutely free.” There are signs younger Christians tend to be more tolerant of other faiths than their peers. Researchers at the University of Warwick in the U.K. found that 13- to 15-year-old Christians were more likely than their nonreligious peers to support the right of Muslim classmates to wear religious garb in school. At hot dog nights, some

Every Friday night during the school year, the group cooks 400 hot dogs and distributes them for free between the hours of 10 p.m. and 3 a.m. people can’t believe the hot dogs are really no-stringsattached. “They’re just in complete shock that we’re doing this out of the kindness of our hearts,” said Richard McWherter, a KU student who helps out on Friday nights. “It’s just really interesting to see people’s reactions.” !"!"!

Just after 1:30 a.m., some of the Campus Christians start belting out Aerosmith’s “I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing,” and Emily Freeman doesn’t quite know why. She’s never heard the song. Back home, Freeman practices a religion indigenous to the mountainous region of Peru where she is from. She doesn’t know much about Christianity but started hanging out with the Campus Christians a few weeks ago. Freeman might not know the same songs or the same religious texts, but she knows she likes her new friends. They are people she needs right now; just a few weeks after moving to Kansas, she was diagnosed with leukemia. Freeman picks up Fae, a small dog dressed in a ketchup costume. She’s hot dog night’s unofficial mascot. “Fae’s owner said if I lose

my hair from my treatment, that she’ll shave Fae and make me a wig,” Freeman says, laughing. “I would have the coolest hair ever.” Things get busy after The Wagon Wheel Cafe, at 14th and Ohio streets, closes for the evening. Dozens of people come by for hot dogs. People who probably wouldn’t hang out normally are talking and laughing. One young man uses his phone to show off pictures of his artwork. Another starts freestyle rapping to entertain the crowd. Hanson, the Campus Christians member in the mustard suit, continues yelling “free hot dogs.” The last hot dog is given away just after 2 a.m. The lucky guys who snagged the last of them are appreciative, and start spinning puns in honor of the hot dog. “Man, I’m going to have such a dog-over tomorrow,” one says.

SPRINGFIELD, ILL. (AP) — Copper thieves have struck at Abraham Lincoln’s burial site in Springfield, Ill. An employee recently noticed that a copper statue atop the tomb was missing a 3-foot-long sword. The statue is of a Civil War artillery officer. The sword was allegedly taken sometime between September and early November. It was broken at the handle. Dave Blanchette is spokesman for the Illinois Historic Preservation Agency. He tells the (Springfield) State JournalRegister that the theft is believed to be the first to state property stolen at the Lincoln Tomb Historic Site since the same sword was stolen more than a century ago. State officials plan to repair the statue. A guard used to be stationed at the tomb overnight, but Blanchette says the position was cut amid budget problems.

Contenders argue about Afghanistan, Iran, torture By Kasie Hunt Associated Press

SPARTANBURG, S.C. — Unsparing in their criticism of President Barack Obama, Republican presidential hopefuls disagreed in campaign debate Saturday night about the right course in Afghanistan, the use of waterboarding and the wisdom of a preemptive military strike to prevent Iran from gaining a nuclear weapon. “If we re-elect Barack Obama, Iran will have a nuclear weapon. And if you elect Mitt Romney, Iran will not have a nuclear weapon,” vowed the former Massachusetts governor.

On waterboarding, Herman Cain and Rep. Michele Bachmann both said they would reinstate the technique designed to simulate drowning. Cain went one step further, adding that he would leave it up to military leaders — rather than their civilian superiors — to decide what forms of interrogation amount to torture, which he said he opposes. As for the war in Afghanistan, former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman and Rep. Ron Paul of Texas both said it was time for U.S. troops to come home after a combat mission of 10 years duration. While the Republicans were talking about foreign policy, Obama was on the

Charity gave Sandusky access to vulnerable kids and money, according to the indictment from the PennsylAssociated Press vania attorney general.

By Kevin Begos and Mark Scolforo

STATE COLLEGE, PA. — Over the past 30 years, politicians, sports stars and community leaders heaped praise on Jerry Sandusky and the charity he founded for troubled youngsters, The Second Mile. It was a model program, and the acclaimed football coach was its driving force. Now, prosecutors say that very success enabled Sandusky to find boys and sexually assault them. Sandusky, 67, was charged last weekend with molesting eight boys over a 15-year period in a scandal that rocked the Penn State campus and brought down the university’s beloved football coach, Joe Paterno. In the aftermath, some are wondering if The Second Mile can survive amid questions about its role in the alleged cover-up.

The Second Mile Sandusky was a star assistant coach at Penn State from the 1970s to the 1990s, and many assumed he would lead the team one day, or even head to pro football. He founded The Second Mile in 1977 for youngsters from broken homes and troubled backgrounds, building it into an organization that helped as many as 100,000 children a year through camps and fundraisers. Among the big-time athletic figures listed as honorary directors were Cal Ripken Jr., Arnold Palmer, former Pittsburgh Steeler Franco Harris and Philadelphia Eagles coach Andy Reid. President George H.W. Bush praised the group as a “shining example” of charity work in a 1990 letter. (Sandusky’s reaction: “It’s about time, George! This is long overdue,” he recalled in his autobiography, “Touched.”) But prosecutors said that running the charity gave Sandusky “access to hundreds of boys, many of whom were vulnerable due to their social situations.” He invited youngsters for overnight sleepovers at his home and took them to restaurants and bowl games. He wrestled in the swimming pool with kids who craved the attention. And he gave them gifts: golf clubs, sneakers, dress clothes, a computer

Complaints The good-guy aura around Sandusky was so great that when some children questioned behavior that didn’t seem right, no one took the complaints seriously. Troy Craig recalled attending a weeklong sleepaway camp run by The Second Mile on the Penn State campus in the early 1990s. He was never sexually abused, but in other ways the coach’s behavior seemed inappropriate at the time, said Craig, 33, who is now a disc jockey in State College. Sandusky “had a way of, whether it was a hug or a hand on the leg in the car as we were driving, or just a way of putting his arm around you,” Craig said. “I said this back then to people I knew. Everybody found it hard to believe, or that I was overreacting. I remember feeling as if I was the only one that thought anything was amiss.” Through his attorney, Sandusky has maintained his innocence. Experts on pedophiles aren’t surprised by the stories that have shocked so many people. Richard J. Gelles, dean of the school of Social Policy & Practice at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia and author of several books on abuse and violence in families, said pedophiles typically engage in a “grooming” process in which they select a potential victim and proceed to “break down the inhibitions and establish trust.” Gelles said it is no accident so many people saw a “good” Jerry Sandusky. Sandusky “covered himself by being so beloved that nobody would think he would do something as awful as this,” Gelles said. The mother of one alleged victim told the Centre Daily Times that that disconnect enraged her. “I just lived with this for so long, and it killed me when people talked about him like he was a god, and I knew he was a monster,” said the woman, whose name has not been released. !

world stage, as America’s diplomat in chief. After meeting with Russian President Dmitry Medvedev in Hawaii, he said the two men intend to “shape a common response” to new allegations that Iran has been covertly trying to build a nuclear bomb. The issue is fraught because the regime in Tehran is harshly anti-Israel, a nation the United States has pledged to defend. If the presidential trip gave the Republicans pause, they didn’t show it in a 90-minute debate. “There are a number of ways to be smart about Iran, and a few ways to be stupid. The administration skipped

all the ways to be smart,” said former House Speaker Newt Gingrich. The debate occurred less than two months before the formal selection of national convention delegates begins on Jan. 3 in the Iowa caucuses, with the race remarkably unsettled. Romney has been at or near the top of the public opinion polls for months, while a succession of rivals vying to emerge as his principal challenger has risen and fallen in turn. The latest soundings show Cain the current leader in that sweepstakes, although Gingrich has risen significantly in national polls in recent weeks as Perry has fallen back.

TIMES HAVE CHANGED Now that we’ve experienced the fallout from the subprime lending disaster, there is no longer such a thing as “easy money”. Now you need perhaps ten to fifteen percent down, an excellent credit record and verifiable proof of income when you apply for financing. One reason for all this scrutiny is that lenders sell their loans on the secondary mortgage market, and they are using required (and automated) software to factor in all the variables in the equation that results in a thumbs up or a thumbs down. In other words, it’s not quite as personal as it used to be.

“preapproval,” and not “prequalification,” because prequalification is only an “estimate” of the loan amount for which you might qualify once your application has been fully reviewed. Preapproval puts you in the driver’s seat with sellers, because it means that you have already basically “applied” for financing with your credit report, verified income, and proven ability to make a respectable down payment. Preapproval goes several steps beyond prequalification, and gives you the best indication of how much home you can afford.

Maximize the time spent on your home Save yourself time, stress and heartbreak search by taking the all-important step of by seeking preapproval for financing seeking financing first. Then make your before you even look at House One. I say offer with confidence.

Our speech laws can be problematic


Safer K-10 Cable median barriers are a good first step, but increased enforcement of traffic laws on Kansas Highway 10 also is needed.


y this time next year, installation of cable median barriers could be complete along two particularly dangerous stretches of Kansas Highway 10 between Eudora and Overland Park. It is hoped that the Kansas Department of Transportation project, estimated to cost $800,000, will help reduce the number of so-called crossover accidents on the busy highway that links Lawrence with the greater Kansas City area. Obviously, no cable will completely solve the problem. But the cables will be a start. Lobbying for new safety measures on K-10 began last April, soon after a 5-year-old Eudora boy was killed when a vehicle crossed the median and smashed head-on into the minivan in which the boy was riding. The driver of the vehicle that crossed into oncoming traffic also died in Drivers who speed the accident. The family of or drive impaired on the boy, Cainan K-10 must be told in Shutt, advocated no uncertain terms for “Cables for that there are severe Cainan” and were penalties for putting joined by many others on their other drivers and mission. Eudotheir passengers at ra Mayor Scott risk. It’s time for Hopson wrote even more voices to a letter to Gov. Sam Brownback join Cainan Shutt’s asking the govfamily in the lobby to direct for a safety corridor ernor KDOT to install designation. cable along 23 miles of median from Lawrence to Interstate 435 in Johnson County. KDOT formed a committee of officials and residents from Douglas and Johnson counties to discuss the issue. And while the entire 23 miles won’t get cables, KDOT’s decision last week to install the cables along four miles of the highway is a great initial step. If the cables indeed save lives, the state should review whether to install them along the other 19 miles of the highway. However, a troubling question remains: Is the road the problem or are drivers the problem? Often, the answer is drivers. Many drivers are speeding. There’s no doubt about that. And some drivers are intoxicated or high. Law enforcement reports following accidents corroborate that. So what’s the plan to address those issues? It appears KDOT will lobby the Kansas Legislature to designate K-10 as a highway safety corridor to make the road eligible for increased enforcement of traffic laws — and higher fines for people who break those laws. Drivers who speed or drive impaired on K-10 must be told in no uncertain terms that there are severe penalties for putting other drivers and their passengers at risk. It’s time for even more voices to join Cainan Shutt’s family in the lobby for a safety corridor designation. This is a message that Kansas legislators must hear.

WASHINGTON — The Stolen Valor Act of 2005, a compound of political pandering and moral exhibitionism, was whooped through the Senate, aka the “world’s greatest deliberative body,” by unanimous consent; the House, joining the stampede, passed it by a voice vote. So Xavier Alvarez now hopes the Supreme Court will save him from punishment for lying. And his is not the only case arising from government supervising speech that is demonstrably, or arguably, inaccurate. The Stolen Valor Act allows fines and imprisonment for anyone who falsely claims to have been awarded any military decoration or medal authorized by Congress, with the severest sentences for claiming the highest honors. Alvarez, having won a seat on a California water district board of directors, introduced himself to other members by saying: “I’m a retired Marine of 25 years. I retired in the year 2001. Back in 1987, I was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor. I got wounded many times by the same guy.” All this was rubbish. Leaving aside the question of how exactly Alvarez’s shabby behavior stole any hero’s valor, the constitutional question remains: Is the Stolen Valor Act compatible with the First Amendment, which the Supreme Court has held does not protect only truthful speech? The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals says no. And the Supreme Court has held that “constitutional protection does not turn

Another problematic case is percolating in Ohio, where the government can fine or imprison candidates or other participants in the political process who violate the state’s ‘false statement’ law.” upon the truth, popularity or social utility of the ideas and beliefs which are offered.” Given that some false statements are constitutionally protected, which kinds are not? Defamatory statements are not, if they are made with a culpable state of mind and if they injure another person. When Justice Elena Kagan was a law professor, she noted “the near absolute protection given to false but nondefamatory statements of fact outside the commercial realm.” But Alvarez defamed no one, and it is unclear how his fabrications about himself caused America’s armed forces reputational harm. Furthermore, his lies did not fit any of the other four traditional categories of unprotected speech:

obscenity, fraud, incitement, and speech integral to criminal conduct. Another problematic case is percolating in Ohio, where the government can fine or imprison candidates or other participants in the political process who violate the state’s “false statement” law, which says: No person shall “make a false statement concerning the voting record of a candidate or public official” or “disseminate a false statement concerning a candidate, either knowing the same to be false or with reckless disregard of whether it was false or not,” if the statement is intended to influence an election. Former Rep. Steve Driehaus, a Cincinnati Democrat who considers himself pro-life, says he lost his 2010 re-election bid because the pro-life Susan B. Anthony List, through its political action committee, ran ads saying — falsely, Driehaus insists — that when he voted for Barack Obama’s health care legislation he voted for taxpayer funding of abortion. Ohio’s law had a chilling effect on political speech when a billboard company, aware of Driehaus’ complaints, refused the SBA List’s business. The SBA List did, however, run radio ads against Driehaus. A judge has ruled that his suit against the SBA List, charging “substantial economic and reputational harm” due to defamation, can go to trial. The SBA List is challenging the constitutionality of the false statement law.

Until the eve of the House vote on the health care legislation, Driehaus and about a dozen other pro-life Democrats vowed to oppose the health care bill unless abortion language was changed. It was not, so the president, trying to provide cover for those Democrats, agreed to issue an executive order purportedly limiting funding of abortions under the legislation. But the president of Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider, contentedly dismissed the order as merely “a symbolic gesture.” The National Right to Life Committee, the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops and other pro-life forces grimly agreed. Now, suppose Driehaus and the right-to-life groups are equally sincere in their opposite interpretations of what the health care law permits or requires regarding public funding of abortion. Should an Ohio government panel composed of political appointees be empowered to determine that the SBA List’s contention was intentionally or recklessly false? For weeks before the election, voters heard Driehaus’ dispute with the SBA List, then voted against him. Isn’t that how political arguments should be settled? Or did voters, to the extent that they expressed support for the SBA List’s interpretation of the facts of the health care law, somehow violate the false statement law? — George Will is a columnist for Washington Post Writers Group.



Stan Herd’s Sunflower earthwork near Eudora was gaining more YEARS national attenAGO tion.

Mississippi makes a statement Moral clarity is one of the most seductive traits of social conservatism. Those of us outside that ideology may struggle to untie the Gordian knot of complex moral issues, may wrestle conscience in hopes of compromise, may construct arguments in tenuous terms of, “If this, then that, but if the other thing, then ...” Social conservatives countenance no such irresolution. On issue after issue — same-sex marriage, gun control, Muslim rights — they fly straight as a bullet to their final conclusion, usually distillable to the width of a bumper sticker. So last week’s election result in Mississippi comes as a seismic shock. By a significant margin — 58 percent to 42 percent — voters rejected an anti-abortion amendment to the state constitution defining the fertilized human egg as a person, with all the rights and protections attendant thereto. That bears repeating. Mississippi, after all, is the Deep South of the Deep South, ranked the most conservative state in the union in a 2011 Gallup poll. Yet, given a chance to essentially outlaw abortion and set up a Roe v. Wade showdown in the Supreme Court, the state said an emphatic “no.” Granted, this came in the context of voters around the country rejecting a number of conservatism’s more extreme ideas, including the defeat of an Ohio measure limiting the collective bargaining rights of public workers. Still, the Mississippi vote stands out. Opponents argued — and voters apparently agreed

Nobody ‘likes’ abortion. Nobody, not even the most ardent defender of choice, disputes the sacredness of human life. But we balance that against the conviction that there is something totalitarian in the idea the state can force a woman to bear a child that she, for whatever reason — incest, rape, illness, deformity or grinding poverty — does not wish to bear.”

— that conferring personhood upon a fertilized egg would have far-reaching implications, affecting not only a woman’s right to an abortion but also her right to use birth control, get pregnant through in-vitro fertilization, or receive treatment in the event of pregnancy complications. And yet, isn’t that exactly what anti-abortion forces have always argued, life begins at conception? It is telling that, given a chance to enshrine that

belief into law (and confront all the new moral conundrums that would entail), Mississippi rejected it instead. Moral clarity is inherently more compelling than moral irresolution, the starkness of black and white preferable to the foggy opacity of the grays. Unfortunately for them, it is precisely in the grays where those who support a woman’s right to choose are required to make their stand. Nobody “likes” abortion. Nobody, not even the most ardent defender of choice, disputes the sacredness of human life. But we balance that against the conviction that there is something totalitarian in the idea the state can force a woman to bear a child that she, for whatever reason — incest, rape, illness, deformity or grinding poverty — does not wish to bear. Most of us will never have to make that call, for which most of us should be thankful. And many of us believe the best thing we can do is leave it at that, leave the decision in the hands of the women it affects and wish them Godspeed. But some would arrogate that decision unto the state under the guise of moral clarity. The Mississippi vote, then, is instructive. It finds the nation’s most conservative state essentially conceding that moral clarity is sometimes as false as it is seductive — and that there are some calls the state cannot and should not make. There’s a word for that belief: pro-choice. — Leonard Pitts Jr. is a columnist for the Miami Herald.

Cotton has bright future in Kansas HUTCHINSON (AP) — Even while many of the crops in southwest Kansas died under this summer’s relentless drought, some cotton farmers are seeing a bright future for their crop. While dryland cotton fared nearly as poorly as wheat and corn, irrigated cotton thrived in the heat. Cotton gin operators and cotton farmers say the crop uses between one-half and one-third of the water that corn requires. And they say that could become important in the future, if the drought lingers and water reserves continue to decline. The Hutchinson News reports that corn is still the crop of choice by a wide margin. The Kansas Agricultural Statistics Service says more than 4 million acres were planted to corn last spring, compared with only 67,000 acres of cotton.

KANSAS OFFENSIVE LINEMAN TANNER HAWKINSON FINDS HIMSELF in the middle of the rush of Baylor players as they celebrate their overtime victory after a failed two-point conversion by the Jayhawks led to a 31-30, OT victory by the Bears on Saturday at Memorial Stadium.

Little working out for Gill

KU goes for it, doesn’t get it By Matt Tait

Kansas University’s football team played well for three quarters, fell apart for a fourth and, somehow, still had a chance to win Saturday afternoon against the No. 25 team in the BCS standings in front of 35,188 fans at Memorial Stadium. After the game, none of that mattered. All anyone wanted to talk about was the final play in KU’s latest loss, a failed two-point conversion attempt that helped Baylor survive with a 31-30 overtime victory. “I’m gonna say this, and I want everybody to understand,” said lineman Jeff Spikes, one of 15 seniors who played the final home game of their careers. “I support and I appreciate (KU coach Turner Gill) calling that two-point conversion because we could’ve easily come out and kicked the (extra point) and, to me, that showed that we are not

no punks. We are not gonna sit down and let anyone run over us. You’re gonna have to work for it. You’re gonna have to beat me. I commend him, and I appreciate that he gave us the opportunity to go out and take that victory. Even though we came up on the losing end, I appreciate it, and I support it, and I’m glad he did it.” That the Jayhawks (2-8 overall, 0-7 Big 12) were even in that position in the first place KANSAS SAFETY KEESTON TERRY AND BAYLOR seemed both right and wrong. For starters, the Jayhawks RECEIVER TEVIN REESE, FRONT, wait on a final — who entered Saturday as touchdown pass during the fourth quarter. Reese made the catch, and the extra point Please see KANSAS, page 6B helped put the game into overtime.

With one more successful play from his offense Saturday, Kansas University football coach Turner Gill could have ended a seven-game losing streak, made irrelevant blowing a 21-point fourth-quarter lead and drawn praise for having had the guts to fly in the face of conventional wisdom. It didn’t work out for him, of course, and Baylor won Saturday’s game in Memorial Stadium, 31-30, in overtime. Not much has worked out during Gill’s two years as the football coach. Not the decision to leave the names off the jerseys. Not the word of the week. Not the beginning, a 6-3 loss to FCS opponent North Dakota State in his debut. Not the end, a losing streak of eight games and counting. Not the blowouts — his teams have lost as many games by 42 points or more as they have won by any margin — and

not the 5-17 record, 1-14 in Big 12 games. Not even big leads — 20-0 against Texas Tech, 24-3 against Baylor — work out for Gill, who took Saturday’s setback particularly hard.

Senior Teahan off to red-hot start for KU basketball By Gary Bedore

Kansas University senior off guard Conner Teahan, who made 13 of 16 shots in the exhibition season for 81.3 percent, drained four of five attempts in Friday’s 100-54 regular-season opening rout of Towson. That’s 17 baskets in 21 tries, good for an unheard-of 81 percent, if anybody’s counting. “I don’t think about it,” Teahan, a 6-foot-6, 212-pounder out of Kansas City (Mo.) Rockhurst, said of his red-hot shooting,

which included seven threepointers in 10 tries in two exhibitions and three of four threes versus Towson. “I can hit 10 or 12 in a row, and, to be honest with you, the last shot has nothing to do with the shot I’m going to take. That’s the mind-set I try to have.” Teahan, who had scored just 81 points total in his first three seasons at KU, red-shirted last season with a big senior year in mind. Barring some unforeseen circumstance, he’s expected to be part of the rotation all year long.

I just dream of helping Kansas win. That’s something I have had the opportunity to do this year.” — Kansas senior off guard Conner Teahan He enters Tuesday’s marquee game against Kentucky (8 p.m., New York’s Madison Square Garden) as potentially a key factor in the game. “I just dream of helping Kansas win. That’s something I

have had the opportunity to do this year,” Teahan said, asked if playing a meaningful role in a game in the Garden classifies as a dream come true. “Hopefully that’s something I will continue to have the opportunity to do. That’s just kind of my dream. Yes, playing big games like this, Kansas versus Kentucky ... that’s what you live for as a basketball player, and playing in the Garden, those things combined are huge.” Teahan likely will spend some time Tuesday guarding 6-4 sophomore Doron Lamb,

who figures to play in the NBA someday. Lamb scored 15 points (three threes, eight assists) in UK’s 108-58 blowout victory over Marist on Friday. “It’s definitely a big opportunity for me, but it’s a big opportunity for our team,” Teahan said. “It’s a big opportunity for us to show how good our team defense is. Me by myself or anybody on our team by ourself is not going to be as effective against as talented a team as Kentucky. It’s going to have to

Sanchez excited to be with Royals KANSAS CITY, MO. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Jonathan Sanchez walked through Kauffman Stadium on a blustery fall morning, bundled up in a black coat with a black stocking cap pulled onto his head. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s certainly not in San Francisco anymore. Sanchez was traded from the Giants to Kansas City this week in a deal that gave the Royals the kind of front-line starter they lacked last season. They had to give up outfielder Melky Cabrera, but also got a minor league pitcher. The subject of trade speculation for years, Sanchez was the Giantsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; best pitcher during the latter part of 2010, when they beat the Texas Rangers to win the World Series. He was 4-1 with a 1.03 ERA over his last seven outings, and finished the year with a 13-9 record and a 3.07 ERA. Now, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s heading to a franchise that hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t made the playoffs since 1985. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s exciting, you know?â&#x20AC;? Sanchez said Thursday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s exciting to make the playoffs, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what we want, to be a young team that makes the playoffs.â&#x20AC;? Sanchez struggled most of last season, partly due to a case of biceps tendinitis, going 4-7 with a 4.26 ERA before missing the final month with a left ankle sprain.

Jeff Chiu/AP File Photo

FORMER SAN FRANCISCO GIANTS PITCHER JONATHAN SANCHEZ WORKS against the Cleveland Indians on June 24, 2011. The lefthander was traded to the Kansas City Royals last week. But he said his arm feels good and his ankle is â&#x20AC;&#x153;nearly 100 percent,â&#x20AC;? which is good news for a Royals club that struggled to get its starting pitchers deep into games last season. Kansas Cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s starters logged the third-fewest innings of any staff in the American League. Sanchez certainly has electric stuff, with an overpowering fastball that racked up 205 strikeouts

in 1931â &#x201E;3 innings two years ago. But heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also had trouble controlling it, walking a league-high 96 batters the same season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the way I pitch,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So long as they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t score, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m fine with that.â&#x20AC;? The Royals will be, too. General manager Dayton Moore thought highly enough of Sanchez to deal away Cabrera, who put together a career year in

center field, to land the 28-yearold left-hander. Moore said he hopes that Sanchez can develop into a dependable anchor for a young starting rotation. Luke Hochevar is just 28 years old, and rookie Danny Duffy is 22, with several other prospects expected to contend for spots on the major league roster in spring training. The Royals arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t necessarily done adding to their pitching staff this offseason, though Moore said no announcements are imminent. Sanchez, Hochevar, Duffy and Felipe Paulino are considered locks for four of the starting jobs, leaving a cadre of players trying for the fifth spot. Relievers Luis Mendoza, Aaron Crow and Everett Teaford could move into the rotation, and left-handed prospect Mike Montgomery will get a long look in spring training after spending last season at Triple-A Omaha. The Royals also could sign Bruce Chen, who led them in wins the past two seasons and is currently a free agent. Both sides have expressed interest in a deal. For now, the Royals are happy to have Sanchez in the fold. And after spending the last few years hearing his name mentioned in trade rumors, Sanchez seems happy to be in Kansas City.

By Bob Ford The Philadelphia Inquirer

STATE COLLEGE, PA. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; They appeared in the tunnel at the appointed moment and entered the stadium in neat rows, file after file of football players walking unhurriedly with their arms linked together. On a normal football Saturday at Penn State, the home team enters in a rushing torrent of emotion, but this was not a normal football Saturday. It was like no game in the 125-year history of Penn State football. This was the game played after a week of horrible revelations close to the football program that had left their world unhinged. In a week during which the ground shook and opened up around this insular campus tucked among the central Pennsylvania hills, the list of what took place is still mind-boggling: A grand jury indicted a legendary former assistant coach for an unspeakable pattern of sexual abuse against children, and two high-ranking university officials were charged with lying about what they knew about it; head coach Joe Paterno and university president Graham Spanier were fired from their positions; a current assistant coach was vilified for failing to do more to stop a 2002 sexual assault he witnessed and had to be removed from the staff for his own safety, according to the university; and the football program became a national symbol of what could happen when collegiate athletics is allowed to exert too much power over the school it represents. That was quite a burden to carry into Beaver Stadium on Saturday, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no wonder the players linked arms to hold themselves together as they walked onto this familiar stage on a golden autumn afternoon. For Penn Stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s football community, this day was meant to show both sorrow and resolve, and it was a success in every regard except the final score â&#x20AC;&#x201D; 17-14, Nebraska. The sins of the few affected the good intentions of the many and, on Saturday, the whole football community â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a big one â&#x20AC;&#x201D; took the opportunity to come together and say just that. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What happened here, that wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t us,â&#x20AC;? was their message. It was heard. The fans and the players and the remaining coaches and administrators did and said the right things before the intense scrutiny of the world. The real test of integrity, of course, is doing the right things when no one is watching, and some of their leaders let them down badly in that regard. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This was a horrific thing and we all feel that way, but time heals all wounds,â&#x20AC;? assistant coach Jay Paterno said. How long a process, and how much time, is the unknown. Even on a perfect autumn afternoon, in this pretty how town in the country, before all these good people, it still felt as if there are many miles to stumble before the walking is ever normal again.

Natsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Ramos speaks about two-day abduction VALENCIA, VENEZUELA â&#x20AC;&#x201D; His eyes tearing up with emotion, Washington Nationals catcher Wilson Ramos embraced his rescuers Saturday and said he had wondered whether he would survive a two-day kidnapping ordeal that ended when commandos swept into his captorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; mountain hideout. Ramos said that he was thankful to be alive a day after his rescue and that his final moments as a prisoner were hair-raising as police and the kidnappers exchanged heavy gunfire in the remote area where he was being held. He said his kidnappers had carefully planned the abduction and told him they were going to demand a large ransom. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know if I was going to get out of it alive,â&#x20AC;? Ramos told reporters at a police station in his hometown of Valencia, flanked by police investigators, National Guard commanders and Justice Minister Ramos Tareck El Aissami. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was very hard for me. It was very hard for my family.â&#x20AC;? El Aissami said authorities arrested four of the captors, all of them Venezuelan men in their 20s. A 60-year-old woman and a 74-year-old man were also arrested as accomplices for supplying the kidnappers with food from their home in the area, he said. The six suspects were led past journalists at the police station with black hoods over their heads. The authorities were still searching for at least four Colombian men who escaped during the rescue, El Aissami said. He didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say whether anyone was wounded in the gunbattle. Ramos, 24, was seized at gunpoint outside his familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s home Wednesday night and whisked away in an SUV. It was the first known kidnapping of a Major League Baseball player in Venezuela, and the abduction set off an outpouring of candlelight vigils and public prayers at stadiums as well as outside Ramosâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; house.


Tiger pulls within two of lead SYDNEY â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Tiger Woods is right in the middle of an Aussie-flavored championship Down Under. Looking more like he did the opening two rounds, Woods ran off three birdies on his front nine and to pull within two shots of Greg Chalmers heading to the back nine. Chalmers was at 11-under par through six holes, one shot ahead of Nick Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Hern. Woods was tied with Jason Day, who hit his opening tee shot into the water, and 54-hole leader John Senden. Most of the birdie chances come on the back nine of The Lakes, and Woodsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; goal was to play a solid front nine to at least give himself a chance at winning for the first time in two years.

KU soccer opens NCAAs today By Benton Smith

The majority of Kansas University women’s soccer players are about to embark on some uncharted territory: the NCAA Tournament. At noon today at Jayhawk Soccer Complex, an underclassman-heavy KU team will play host to Georgia in the first round. For everyone on the team but the seniors, it will be a new experience. The Jayhawks haven’t played in the postseason tourney since 2008, when this year’s seniors were just freshmen. However, KU only played two seniors — forward Kortney Clifton and midfielder Jordyn Perdue — in their last game. And they came off the bench. So the Jayhawks aren’t exactly loaded with tournament know-how. Bad news? Not according to coach Mark Francis. “I don’t think it’s that big of a deal,” the coach said. “You’re not really gonna do anything different than you did during the year, to be honest.” Kansas is 11-8-1 entering its tournament home game with Georgia (12-6-2), and the Jayhawks are ready to begin the postseason in front of the home fans. Sophomore defender Madi Hillis said she and her teammates are excited. “This is one of the goals we made at the beginning of the year,” she said of playing in the tournament. The funny thing about KU playing at home, though, is that the Jayhawks are just 4-5 this season on campus. In road and neutral games, they are 7-3-1. Said junior midfielder Whitney Berry: “For whatever reason, we were better on the road.” Francis had a pretty solid theory as to why that happened. “A big part of that is we’ve had some really, really tough games at home,” the coach said, giving examples of Flor-

Berry, who leads the team with 13 assists, said the Jayhawks need to bring their road-game mentality at home against the Bulldogs. “As long as we come out hard, right away in the first half, we should be just as well off as we are in away games,” she said. Francis didn’t think the team’s home record would have any bearing on the outcome of its first-round game.

“I think the kids are pumped about being in the tournament,” Francis said, “but especially about being at home.” According to the coach, in his 13th season leading KU, Georgia is athletic up front and dangerous in the midfield. He compared the Bulldogs to Big 12 foes Texas A&M and Oklahoma State, which finished the regular season first and second in the conference standings. Berry said the Bulldogs won’t show KU anything it hasn’t seen this year.

“As long as we’re keeping up and defending,” she said, “we should be pretty good.” Freshman forward Ingrid Vidal leads Kansas this year with 11 goals. Sophomore midfielder Alexa Newfield leads Georgia with 15 goals and eight assists. This is the fifth trip to the NCAA Tournament for the Jayhawks, who are 4-4 in the postseason under Francis. In 2008, KU lost in the second round to Stanford.

No. 17 KSU tops A&M in four overtimes

Charlie Riedel/AP Photo

KANSAS STATE TIGHT END TRAVIS TANNAHILL (80) CELEBRATES after his quarterback Collin Klein ran one yard to win against Texas A&M during overtime on Saturday in Manhattan. Kansas State won the game 53-50 in quadruple overtime.

MANHATTAN (AP) — Bill Snyder wonders whether his team is trying to get rid of him. All these dramatic finishes involving No. 17 Kansas State, including a four-overtime victory over Texas A&M on Saturday night, just might be too much for his 72-year-old heart to take. The Wildcats needed a late touchdown to beat Eastern Kentucky in their season opener, and a goal line stand on the road against Miami. They rallied to beat Baylor by a point, and overcame a big deficit to knock off Texas Tech earlier this season. “He says that every week, that we’re going to give him a heart attack,” cornerback David Garrett said with a sly smile. “Nah, we love him. We don’t want to get rid of him.” Especially the way he has the Wildcats rolling. Collin Klein threw for a career-high 281 yards, added 103 yards on the ground and accounted for six touchdowns Saturday night, the final one a sneak from a yard out in the fourth overtime to give Kansas State a dramatic 53-50 victory over the Aggies. Kansas State (8-2, 5-2 Big 12) rallied from a 10-point deficit in the final 6 minutes to send the game to overtime and eventually hand the Aggies (5-5, 3-4) their third consecutive loss. “It was a great game, but being on the losing end of it leaves a sour taste in my mouth,” Aggies coach Mike Sherman said. They had their chances. Texas A&M had the ball first in the fourth overtime and moved down to the Kansas State 3 before its drive stalled. Facing fourth-and-1, Sherman elected to play it safe and kick the chip-shot field goal, and that gave

He says that every week, that we’re going to give him a heart attack.” — Kansas State cornerback David Garrett on coach Bill Snyder and the Wildcats’ dramatic finishes Kansas State the opening it needed. Klein pounded forward for three yards on third-and-3 at the 18 for a first down, and a pass interference call on the Aggies’ Toney Hurd Jr. in the end zone gave Kansas State the ball at the 2. Klein went straight up the middle twice, getting across the goal line on his second try as the crowd erupted. The Wildcats poured off the sideline to celebrate the victory, piling up at the goal line before heading over to the student section on the east side of the stadium. The win was especially sweet for Snyder. Klein He was on the Kansas State sideline back in 1998, when the Wildcats lost to the Aggies in double overtime in Snyder the Big 12 championship game, costing them a chance to play for a national title. Cyrus Gray ran for 218 yards and two touchdowns, and Ryan Tannehill threw for 210 yards and three touchdowns for the Aggies, who lost in overtime to Missouri two weeks ago and fell to

Oklahoma last week. They’ll need to beat Kansas or Texas in their remaining games to become bowl eligible. The game was tied at 21 early in the fourth quarter when Kansas State’s John Hubert fumbled at his own 29. The Aggies’ Terrence Frederick recovered the ball, and Gray scored the go-ahead touchdown when he went virtually untouched right up the middle from 7 yards out. Gray sprang free for a 63yard run moments later, setting up a 17-yard field goal by Texas A&M’s Randy Bullock that made it 31-21 with 6:38 remaining. Accustomed to late-game pressure, Kansas State never buckled. Klein hit Chris Harper in stride for a 53-yard touchdown pass that pulled the Wildcats within a field goal with 5:49 left. The defense forced Texas A&M into three-and-out, and Kansas State took over at its own 32. Two 15-yard penalties on the defense helped the Wildcats move down field, and Anthony Cantele’s 44-yard field goal into a stiff breeze tied the game at 31. That’s how it remained at the end of regulation. The Wildcats had the ball first in overtime and took just three plays to score. Klein slithered up the middle from 9 yards out and fumbled shy of the goal line, but receiver Tramaine Thompson was there to recover it for a touchdown. The Aggies answered when Tannehill hit Jeff Fuller on a 9-yard slant route for a score. The teams traded field goals in the second overtime, and Klein wasted no time in the third. Dropping back to pass, he noticed the left side of the field clear out and took off in a dead sprint for the pylon, going untouched 25

Faced with fourth-and-goal at the 8-yard line, Tannehill sidestepped a defender in the backfield and found Uzoma Nwachukwu in the corner of the end zone for the tie. But his throw to Fuller on the Aggies’ 2-point try bounced incomplete, sending the game to a fourth overtime. That’s all the Wildcats would need.

Mizzou shuts down No. 21 Texas, loses RB Josey COLUMBIA, MO. (AP) — In the final Big 12 meeting, Gary Pinkel got the best of Texas. Missouri’s coach didn’t seem all that euphoric about ending the school’s six-game losing streak in the series and knocking off the only conference school he hadn’t beaten heading into next year’s move to the SEC. For one thing, the Tigers likely lost the conference’s leading rusher for the rest of the year. Also, they’re only .500. “I don’t think off that field, ‘Gosh, I finally beat Texas!’” Pinkel said after Missouri’s 17-5 upset of the No. 21 Longhorns on Saturday. “I don’t do that. “This game, I don’t care who it is, this gives us a chance to have a really good season and accomplish some goals.”

Kendial Lawrence topped 100 yards with a touchdown in relief of Henry Josey and a defense burned for 697 yards at Baylor a week earlier kept No. 21 Texas out of the end zone for the first time since 2004. Missouri won for only the second time in the last 17 times in the series. “I’m really disappointed offensively,” said Texas coach Mack Brown, who refused to lean on injuries as an excuse. “Even though they piled up today more than I think I’ve ever seen at one position, we still have to do our best to win the game,” the coach added. Pinkel said Josey was undergoing an MRI exam but didn’t expect positive news. Coming off four straight games with 125 or more rushing yards, Josey was held to 19 yards on 11 carries.

Before Josey was carted off in the third quarter Brown came across the field to check on the sophomore from Angleton, Texas. Josey also missed the last nine minutes of the first half after an apparent helmet-to-helmet hit. Missouri upset a ranked team for the second time this season after beating Texas A&M on Oct. 29. The Tigers finish against Texas Tech, whipped 66-6 by Oklahoma State on Saturday, and Kansas in search of a seventh straight bowl bid. James Franklin completed his first 10 passes and ran for a 2-yard touchdown for the Tigers (5-5, 3-4), who beat Texas for the first time since 1997. Lawrence had 106 yards on 18 carries with a 35-yard score in the second quarter.

Second-ranked Oklahoma State crushes Texas Tech, 66-6 LUBBOCK, TEXAS (AP) — Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy trusts his secondranked Cowboys can handle the mounting pressure as they approach their final two games. After beating Texas Tech 66-6 on Saturday, No. 2 Oklahoma State is likely two more victories away from playing for the national title. “There is pressure. Each week I know you can feel it” said Gundy, whose team is 10-0 for the first time in school history. “But it’s our responsibility to manage it.” “But I believe in the leadership of this team, that they feel the importance of getting ready for the next game.” Brandon Weeden threw for 423 yards and five touchdowns and Joseph Randle ran for three more scores to lead Oklahoma State. The Cowboys, second in the BCS standings this week, next (7-0 Big 12) play at Iowa State before closing their season at home against Oklahoma in the Bedlam game. Weeden, who completed 31 of 37 passes, threw touchdown passes of 2, 27, 28, 48 and 66 yards, and had no interceptions before his

Justin Blackmon and Josh Cooper each had more than 100 receiving yards. Weeden, 28, said the team isn’t listening to the chatter about their season. “Everyone has their opinion about where we are as a team,” he said. “But really and truly the guys in the locker room, they don’t buy into it.

We’re far enough along here, we’ve got something special going on, and they guys are just focused on getting better next week.” It was the Red Raiders’ most lopsided loss ever and the most points allowed in program history. Seth Doege completed 25 of 43 passes for a season-low 169 yards and an interception for Texas Tech (5-5, 2-5).

The Cowboys dominated from the start, going up 21-0 in the first quarter. They ran at will and Weeden wasn’t pressured much. He was sacked just once. “I wouldn’t trade him for anyone in the country,” Gundy said. “I know there are some good ones out there, but I wouldn’t put him on the trading block.” Stewart and Blackmon had two touchdowns each. Randle’s rushing scores went for 2, 1 and 10 yards, and he finished with 78 yards on 18 carries. Hershel Sims led the Cowboy with 109 yards on 13 carries. The Cowboys led the nation in takeaways coming into the game (31) and got three more against the Red Raiders. They scored off all three first-half turnovers by Texas Tech, including a fumbled kickoff return by the Red Raiders. Ben McRoy fumbled the ball into the end zone and teammate Kenny Williams recovered it momentarily when it rolled out onto the field. Williams lost the handle and couldn’t find the ball, which eventually was recov-

ered at the 3 and taken in for a score by Josh Stewart to make it 35-0. About two minutes earlier Stewart had caught a 27yard touchdown pass from Weeden to make it 21-0. He got another TD on a 66-yarder from Weeden just before the senior quarterback left the game. Texas Tech has lost three straight since winning 41-38 at Oklahoma, and has been outscored 159-33. “We got to a point about Oklahoma, we thought we were playing pretty good,” Red Raiders coach Tommy Tuberville said. “And then we come back the next week and we played flat and we just never recouped. We’ll find out a lot about ourselves the next two weeks.” It is the second time this season that the Cowboys have led by 49 points at half. Oklahoma State was up 56-7 against Kansas early last month in Stillwater. The 49-0 halftime score was the most points scored against Texas Tech in a half and the Red Raiders’ largest deficit since at least 2000. Texas Tech didn’t score until early in the third quarter.

PENN STATE PLAYERS DEREK MOYE (6), QUINN BARHAM (67), DEVON STILL (71), AND DREW ASTORINO (28) LINK ARMS as they lead the team onto the field before the game against Nebraska on Saturday in State College, Pa.

Paterno-less Penn St. can’t rally vs. Huskers STATE COLLEGE, PA. (AP) — If they didn’t know better, fans in Happy Valley would have thought they were watching Joe Paterno’s team. No. 12 Penn State played tough defense and basic offense. The Nittany Lions fought back when they were down, trying to rally from a 17-point deficit against No. 19 Nebraska on Saturday. But on a day when the outcome was secondary, Penn State began the journey forward from a devastating scandal and the firing of Paterno with a draining loss, 1714 to the Cornhuskers. The game closed a tumultuous week that began with the arrest of former defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky on shocking child sexual abuse charges. Major college football’s winningest coach was pushed out in the aftermath. “I was awful proud,” said interim coach Tom Bradley, who took over for the 84-year-old Paterno. “They got down 17-0. They didn’t quit. They hung tough.” No one would have blamed the Nittany Lions (8-2, 5-1 Big Ten) if they decided to pack it in. But they didn’t. Time expired after a fourth-down pass by Matt McGloin fell harmlessly to the ground. McGloin and his teammates soon turned toward the tunnel to file back to the locker room. Most were silent. Bradley Some had blank stares. Afterward, linebacker Nate Stupar was heartened the team ended up following Paterno’s advice. “(Bradley) kept saying, ‘Beat Nebraska. Do what JoePa said,’” said Stupar, who had a team-high 13 tackles. “Be a team and you’ll be teammates for life and just keep that goal in mind. No matter what, stick together. That’s what we did today.” Rex Burkhead ran for 121 yards and a touchdown for Nebraska (8-2, 4-2) before the Nittany Lions scored 14 points on two second-half touchdown runs by Stephfon Green. But a key drive ended when Silas Redd was stopped on the fourth down with 1:49 left at the Penn State 38. School president Rod Erickson met the Nittany Lions in the locker room afterward and praised, “how much courage, how much heart, and how much character” the players had, he said. Most Penn State fans heeded calls for a “blueout,” wearing the school’s familiar dark blue in support of victims of child sexual abuse. Fans formed the outline of a blue ribbon in the student section. “We are ... Penn State,” roared the crowd through the afternoon, the signature State College cheer. But this school’s identity has forever changed.

PENN STATE ALUMNI AND FANS STAND outside Beaver Stadium before the game between Penn State and Nebraska. “I think today it just made the healing process start to begin,” Bradley said. Sandusky, architect of the “Linebacker U.” defenses, was charged last weekend with sexually abusing eight boys over 15 years. The athletic director and a university vice president were charged with perjury and failure to report a 2002 allegation to police, and Paterno was fired following mounting fury he did not do more about the charge — that Sandusky assaulted a boy in the Penn State football showers — than pass it along to his bosses. President Graham Spanier also was ousted for similar reasons. The last time Penn State played a game at Beaver Stadium, on Oct. 29, Paterno was feted by Spanier for his 409th career victory, the most in Division I history. On Saturday, he was nowhere to be found — save for a few fleeting images on the video boards overhead. That was enough to get spontaneous cheers of “Joe Paterno!” ringing through the stands. Paterno started as an assistant in 1950, then took over as head coach in 1966. It was Penn State’s first game without Paterno on staff since Nov. 19, 1949, a 19-0 loss at Pittsburgh. But in many respects, it was like any other fall Saturday in Happy Valley. Massive 6-foot-5 defensive tackle Devon Still hit ball carriers with typical ferocity and the Nittany Lions played another close, low-scoring game — as they have all year. Penn State’s first play from scrimmage was a fullback run up the middle — a Paterno favorite. But the Nittany Lions’ conservative offense struggled again. In the late-game sequence that ended with Redd getting smothered on fourth down, Penn State called four straight running plays. Meanwhile, someone named “Paterno” wore a path on the sideline wearing jet black Nike sneakers. Just not that Paterno. Paterno’s son, quarterback coach Jay Paterno, moved down from the press box to relay plays from the sideline — a job once held by assistant coach Mike McQueary. Where was Joe? It’s uncertain, though he pulled

into the garage at his home a couple of hours after the final gun. “He wanted to make sure that the guys he coached and the guys he felt very close to would understand that he was part of us,” Jay Paterno said. “He still wanted to be part of this and he was pulling for them and cheering for them.” McQueary was among the missing after being placed on indefinite paid leave Friday by the school. His name surfaced as a grand jury witness to the 2002 abuse charge. Sandusky, who retired in 1999 but lives in the area and had access to school facilities, maintains his innocence. McQueary, Joe Paterno says, told him that Sandusky had behaved inappropriately, but not to the extent of the detailed testimony. Paterno then passed the information on to Curley, but the report was not given to police. News of the scandal elicited threats to McQueary, the school said, and brought heightened security. But there were no visible problems during the game. “I’ll be honest with you, going into this football game, I didn’t think the game should have been played — for a lot of different reasons,” Nebraska coach Bo Pelini said. “I look at my job as a football coach is to educate, and to prepare the kids that come into the program for life.” By the second half, most Penn State fans seemed most concerned about whether the Nittany Lions could get back into the game. The Corhuskers had surged early, with Burkhead gashing Penn State’s staunch D on 25 carries. He motored 14 yards into the end zone with 8:51 left in the third quarter for a 17-0 lead. Then came the second-half push from Green on Senior Day — his last game at Beaver Stadium. The senior scored from 5 yards out with 5:07 in the third quarter, then added a 6-yard run at 5:42 of the fourth to get Penn State within three. Green finished with 71 yards on 17 carries. But the offense faltered on two late drives. The fans cheered anyway, and greeted the Nittany Lions with one more chorus of “We are ... Penn State.”

2-minute drill Baylor Kansas

31 30


Kansas was solid defensively to start out, forcing Baylor’s first five possessions to end by punt, fumble, punt, fumble and fumble. Only on its last possession of the first half, a hurry-up drive of 60 yards over three plays and 26 seconds, did Baylor score — and only a field goal, at that, to cut the deficit to 17-3 at halftime. … Kansas added another score on its second possession of the second half to take a 24-3 lead before the wheels fell off. … While the Jayhawks’ final four drives of regulation ended with three punts and an interception, Baylor reeled off three consecutive quick-strike touchdowns to force OT. … The Bears struck first in overtime, and Kansas responded, but KU’s two-point conversion attempt for the win failed.


Face-mask call befuddles KU By Jesse Newell

A controversial call at the end of the first half resulted in a Baylor field goal and also left Kansas University players and coaches baffled following BU’s 31-30 overtime victory over KU on Saturday. On the Bears’ final offensive play before halftime, quarterback Robert Griffin III completed a pass to Tevin Reese for 28 yards to the KU 35 as time expired, but KU cornerback Anthony Davis was flagged for a 15-yard facemask penalty to give the Bears one additional untimed down. “It wasn’t a face-mask at all. I clearly saw it,” KU linebacker Steven Johnson said. “Sometimes,

I’m just like, man. I don’t know if the refs are out to get us or what, but I feel like in some situations ... it’s just crazy. “Sometimes it’s that same ref. I’ve seen him all the time. I’m just like, ‘Does he not like this school, this university or something?’ I don’t know, man. It’s not in my control. I just continue to keep playing so we can pull it out.” BU kicker Aaron Jones followed with a 37-yard field goal to cut KU’s lead to 17-3. Because the game went to overtime, three points ended up being significant in the final outcome. “From the (press) box, you can’t see some things that you’d like to see,” KU defensive coordinator Vic Shealy said. “The guys

on the sideline, felt like he had ... they (officials) called a face-mask, but it wasn’t a face-mask.” Shealy said it appeared Davis might have had a hand toward the back of Reese’s neck, meaning there was a possibility the official could have called a horse-collar tackle. The words from the referee, though, stated that KU was being penalized for a face-mask. “If they call horse-collar (tackle), then both hands have to be at the back, and one was in front,” Shealy said. “But you know what, the officials are in control of the game. It is what it is.” KU coach Turner Gill said the play was one of three or four that the Jayhawks would like to have back. “I think it probably didn’t go

our way,” Gill said. “I thought that it was a tough call. That’s just the way it goes. There’s nothing you can do about it. You’ve got to play and respond back. I thought our guys still came back and responded in the third quarter.” KU safety Bradley McDougald also said he didn’t see a face-mask from where he was on the field. “I’m not going to question the referee,” McDougald said. “This is his profession. This is what he does. If he saw face-mask, we’ve got to live with it. “Coaches do a great job of stating that we shouldn’t even be anywhere close to give the referee a chance to make a face-mask call, so that’s just a small thing that ends up biting you in the end.”

KANSAS COACH TURNER GILL ARGUES FOR AN INTERFERENCE CALL against Baylor following a pass to KU receiver JaCorey Shepherd during the Jayhawks’ last drive of regulation. Officials didn’t agree there was interference, and the Jayhawks eventually lost, 31-30 in overtime, on Saturday at Memorial Stadium.



20-point underdogs and ranked last in the country in total defense — were facing the nation’s No. 2 offense. The fact KU led, 24-3, going into the fourth quarter was surprising. Once the final quarter began, everything that people are used to seeing from this team slowly started to creep back into play. Missed reads, dropped balls, blown assignments and a lack of confidence each surfaced once again, as Baylor scored 28 straight points in a little more than 12 minutes to turn a 24-3 deficit into a 3124 lead in overtime. The play that sparked it all was a 49-yard touchdown run from BU quarterback Robert Griffin III, which cut KU’s lead to 24-10 with 11:45 to play in the fourth. “I think our guys were still competing,” KU defensive coordinator Vic Shealy said. “I don’t think they got to the point where they were dysfunctional. I think they got to the point where maybe they weren’t playing as confident because they were bracing for a mistake.” Gill, who spoke to the media with tears in his eyes following his team’s eighth straight loss — and Gill’s 17th setback in 22 tries at KU — said Griffin’s ability to run changed the game. Griffin, who came in averaging 396 yards of total offense, had just 49 yards rushing, 99 yards passing and no touchdowns through three quarters. He finished with 103 yards on the ground, 312 through the air and four touchdowns. “That’s the thing that’s always scary,” Gill said. “You kind of can hold him and contain him, but every time he took off running, that’s when they got momentum, that’s when they started making some plays.” Added Shealy: “These are good offenses. What happens is, you make a mistake, they make you look almost embarrassingly bad.” Not only was Griffin’s natural play-making ability tough to handle, the Jayhawks also had to battle a batch of nerves once things got tight after Griffin’s TD run. “They changed the tempo,” Shealy said. “They got really fast.

KANSAS LINEBACKER STEVEN JOHNSON drags down Baylor receiver Kendall Wright with the help of safety Bradley McDougald, left. We’ve seen fast tempo before, but they went from fast to really fast, and I don’t know that we got settled back down after that.” It didn’t look like it, as the Jayhawks’ defense reverted to bad habits. In a span of 4:36, Griffin tossed two long touchdowns that tied the game. “That shouldn’t happen,” Gill said. Despite the meltdown, KU still had two chances to win. The first came with the Jayhawks driving late in the fourth quarter. After starting at its own 39-yard line, KU, which ran for 296 yards, picked up a couple of first downs and reached the Baylor 39-yard line before disaster struck. A second-down pass from quarterback Jordan Webb intended for JaCorey Shepherd was knocked away by Baylor’s Mike Hicks and fell into the arms of linebacker Elliot Coffey for an interception. Several Jayhawks said they thought Hicks hit Shepherd early, including Gill, who went wild on the sideline pleading with the refs. “The referee makes the call,” said Gill, asked about the possible pass interference. “I see it one way, but they have to make the call. That’s the way it goes. Sometimes you get the call, sometimes you don’t.” That set up the overtime, and after watching Baylor score first in just three plays, the Jayhawks answered with a TD strike from Webb to senior tight end Tim Biere on KU’s first play of OT. That’s when Gill called timeout and decided to go for two. “I just felt the momentum,” he

said. “On that first-down call, we hit it real quick, and I just thought that that would be the time to go for it. I just had an instinct at that particular time to go for it.” Gill said the Jayhawks had two plays called — both passes — and checked to throwing a fade to Biere in the corner of the end zone that was knocked away. “They ended up playing a zone coverage,” Gill said. “We thought they were gonna play man, and the corner who fell off on the outside receiver, that’s the guy who made the play.” Asked if he thought about calling a running play considering the Jayhawks’ success on the ground throughout the game, KU offensive coordinator Chuck Long was honest. “I was thinking about it, but the passing game gives you so many more answers,” he said. “(If you run it), they can bottle that thing up, and then it takes a great play from the running back to get in there. It’s not fourth-and-goal on the one. I’ll go home tonight and think, ‘Well, maybe I shoulda ran that, shoulda run that, shoulda called that. I’ll do a coulda, shoulda, woulda tonight, for sure.” Although the final stretch of their latest loss allowed the Jayhawks to leave the field encouraged, the setback seemed to take a toll on this team like no other. Shealy said the scene in the locker room was the lowest he’d seen during his time at Kansas. Several players agreed. “Nobody said a word after the game,” senior linebacker Steven Johnson said. “Usually you hear a little bit of whispers and stuff, but

First Quarter 9:42 — Ron Doherty 37 field goal. The Jayhawks took the opening kickoff and marched 60 yards in 13 plays and 5:18 to take the lead. Quarterback Jordan Webb completed three of four passes, and Tony Pierson and Darrian Miller combined to rush for 52 yards. (KU 3, BU 0). Second Quarter 12:50 — Christian Matthews 2 run. Alex Mueller kick. After the KU defense picked up a fumbled pitch near midfield, the KU offense drove 49 yards in nine plays and 4:17 to add to its lead. The drive spanned two quarters and included a 27-yard TD run by Darrian Miller that was called back because of a holding penalty on Matthews. (KU 10, BU 0). 0:26 — James Sims 2 run. Mueller kick. Another Baylor turnover led to KU’s third scoring drive of the day, this one a 55-yard, 11-play march that took 4:55. Webb completed a key third-down pass to tight end Tim Biere and Miller ran for 18 yards on two carries to set up the score. (KU 17, BU 0). 0:00 — Aaron Jones 37 field goal. The Jayhawks did everything they could to milk the clock on their TD drive, but BU quarterback Robert Griffin found a way to make them pay. BU took over with 26 seconds to play in the half and drove 60 yards in three plays to crack the scoreboard. Griffin ran for 17 yards and then found Tevin Reese on a completion over the middle. With the clock showing 0:00, KU cornerback Anthony Davis was flagged for a face-mask penalty, which gave Baylor a shot at the field goal. (KU 17, BU 3). Third Quarter 3:31 — Tony Pierson 34 run. Mueller kick. KU’s dominance of the third quarter — at least in this game — continued with a five-play, 45-yard drive in 2:10 that pushed the lead back to three scores. Sims ran four times for 11 yards, including a twoyard gain on fourth-and-one at the Baylor 31-yard line. (KU 24, BU 3). Fourth Quarter 11:45 — Robert Griffin III 49 run. Jones kick. After struggling on offense all day, the Bears ripped off a five-play, 89-yard drive in 1:07. It featured two completions by Griffin and the long TD run. (KU 24, BU 10). 7:58 — Terrance Williams 36 pass from Griffin. Jones kick. The Bears’ D held KU to a three-andout when it absolutely had to and then marched 98 yards in six plays and 1:53 to make it a onescore game. Griffin’s TD pass to Williams landed softly in the receiver’s hands, with KU cornerback Isiah Barfield trailing the play by 5-10 yards. (KU 24, BU 17). 3:32 — Tevin Reese 67 pass from Griffin. Jones kick. The KU offense picked up a couple of first downs but could not keep the ball and Baylor took over with 4:07 to play. Three plays and 35 seconds later, the game was tied. (KU 24, BU 24). Overtime Reese 14 pass from Griffin. Jones kick. Kansas won the toss and elected to go on defense first. Baylor quickly scored on three plays, two runs and the Griffin TD pass. (BU 31, KU 24). Tim Biere 25 pass from Jordan Webb. Twopoint conversion attempt failed. KU responded to Baylor’s quick TD by scoring in one play, a seam pass down the middle. (BU 31, KU 30).

it was just completely silent in there. It was even hard for coach Gill to even talk to us after the game.” Asked to relay Gill’s message, Johnson smiled. “He said he was proud of us,” the co-captain said. “We played hard and played with passion and energy and gave effort all the time. Sometimes, it’s like, I don’t know, we’re cursed or something. Sometimes calls just don’t go our way. And it’s just hard, we feel like we had a game, and then it’s like, ‘What in the world is going on?’”




Miller rushes for 147 By Matt Tait

Although the effort was overshadowed by Saturday’s 31-30 overtime loss to Baylor, Kansas University freshman running back Darrian Miller paced the KU rushing attack with a career day. Miller’s 147 yards on 24 carries were the most by a KU freshman since 1993 and also represented a new career-high for the 5-foot-10, 191-pound back from Blue Springs, Mo. Miller became the third Jayhawk to rush for 100 yards in a game this season, joining sophomore James Sims and red-shirt freshman Brandon Bourbon. Miller was the only Jayhawk ball-carrier who did not score a touchdown Saturday. Sims, who finished with 64 yards on 24 carries, and freshman Tony Pierson (70 yards on eight carries) each crossed the goal line once. In addition, wide receiver Christian Matthews ran four times for 15 yards and scored a two-yard TD plunge out of the “Jayhawk” formation. In all, the Jayhawks ran 64 times Saturday, their most since rushing 71 times against Kansas State in 1992. “Our running backs played well,” offensive coordinator Chuck Long said. “They ran hard. Our offensive line did a terrific job. Our receivers on the outside blocked well.”

Refs get review-happy The first half of Saturday’s game featured an astonishing eight plays that were reviewed by replay officials. Three — a near interception by Steven Johnson, an incompletion by Robert Griffin III and a fumbled pitch that ultimately gave the Jayhawks possession — came on one Baylor drive.


KU offense’s first overtime play, Gill had a decision to make. Kick the extra point, tie the score and give the ball back to Robert Griffin III, who had turned back into RG3 in the fourth quarter after three P.U. quarters. Asked why he went for the two-point conversion, Gill answered, “momentum.” Good answer, had he gone for it right away. But he called a timeout to set up a play. Think about what basketball coaches do — except for the most stubborn of them — to stop the other team’s momentum. They call timeouts. Gill called one on his own team. And then Baylor coach Art Briles called one. So much time had passed since Biere’s touchdown, the sweat dried on the momentum. Time to kick the ball through the uprights and see if emerging star safety Bradley McDougald could come up with another big play. Momentum has no official measurement, but it does have a point of origin. The momentum swings to a team when the sum of adrenaline

in all the athletes on one squad flows far faster than the sum in all the athletes on the other. Adrenaline sharpens focus, enhances strength, instills endurance. It’s fleeting. It had fled by the time Jordan Webb threw a fade to the double-covered Biere on a day Gill recruits Darrian Miller and Tony Pierson rushed for a combined 219 yards and a touchdown (Pierson) on 32 carries. Miller accounted for 147 of those yards, but wasn’t celebrating after the one-point loss. He knows it was Senior Day, and he knows about the speculation swirling around his coach’s job security. “I really try to not pay so much attention to it because I feel like on the priority list it’s not a team priority right now because we still have to finish our season and finish strong,” Miller said of the latter factor. “I think coach Gill will be here for a long time because I think he does great things for this team, even off the field. That’s one reason why I was so emotional today, not just wanting to play hard for the seniors, but also wanting to play hard for coach Gill. Because he’s such a great person, he makes you want to play hard for him.”

The tendency, be it with presidents, Army generals, football coaches, is to get blinded by numbers and want to deify the winners and demonize the losers. It’s a mistake to do so. Gill illustrates that as well as anybody. Joe Paterno, we’re learning, is a mixed bag of another sort for not slaying the monster in his midst. Some day, the rioting Penn State students will come to the realization that a winning record doesn’t equate to a winning football program in all areas. It’s also a mistake to think that when Sheahon Zenger does what his job requires and lets Gill know he’ll be fired with a $6 million parachute, that meeting will be harder on Gill than on Zenger, who truly believes there is more to coaching than winning and losing, but knows that winning has to be part of it. It’ll be tougher on Zenger, no question. Gill is not a man defined by his job performance. Wherever his next stop takes him, be it in coaching or another profession, he’ll go to bed every night knowing he just finished another day of treating people well, a trait that comes easily to him. Is that such a bad lot in life?

Bears celebrate bowl-eligibility By Gary Bedore

Chants of “Bowl game! Bowl Game!” filled Baylor’s football locker room after the Bears’ 31-30 overtime victory over Kansas on Saturday afternoon at Memorial Stadium. “Unbelievable ... that may be best locker room I’ve ever been in. I know I’m sore in places that I have not moved in a while. That’s going to catch up with me tomorrow,” BU coach Art Briles said with a smile. “It’s all worth it. I loosened some joints that hadn’t been loosened in a while.” Briles and the Bears were

popping pads while jumping for joy after erasing a 24-3 fourth-quarter deficit, improving to 6-3 overall (3-3 in Big 12) and becoming bowleligible. It’s the first time BU has been bowl-eligible in consecutive years since 1991-92. “I don’t know if you heard the locker room, but it was huge. We’re going bowling,” junior quarterback Robert Griffin III exclaimed after completing 22 of 29 passes for 312 yards and three touchdowns with one interception. He also rushed for 103 yards off 10 carries and scored one TD in directing BU to the school’s largest fourth-quarter comeback in program history.

Hatch the receiver With Saturday marking the final home game of his career, senior center Jeremiah Hatch did something he had not previously done during his time as a Jayhawk: He had a reception. Sort of. With KU leading 10-0 and looking for more, sophomore quarterback Jordan Webb threw an interception deep in Kansas territory that Baylor’s Elliot Coffey returned inside the 10-yard line. As Coffey made a break for the end zone, Webb hit him out of bounds and forced the ball loose. As the ball flew into the end zone, Hatch, who was racing to make a tackle, snagged the ball out of mid-air and secured it for a KU touchback. Asked after the game if that was the best catch of his career, Hatch said: “Yep, and the only catch of my career. You gotta enjoy it while you get one.” Long said the big fella deNick Krug/Journal-World Photo served credit for the hustle play. “That was a terrific play KANSAS LINEBACKER STEVEN JOHNSON (52) COMES DOWN by a senior, going out,” Long with the ball after a pass from Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III was broken up during the first quarter. said.

“We plan to keep on doing this year after year,” he added of heading to bowls. Griffin dashed 49 yards to cut a 21-point deficit to 24-10 with 11:45 left. He threw a 36-yard TD pass to Terrance Williams to slice the gap to 24-17 with 7:58 remaining. After that, he heaved what later was called a “duck” to Tevin Reese for 67 yards to tie it with 3:32 to play. “That was the best worst pass I’ve ever thrown in my life,” Griffin said. “I threw it as hard as I possibly could because of the wind (in his face). I couldn’t cut it today a few times. He did a good job of adjusting to it.”

Chiefs, fans targeting Tebow KANSAS CITY, MO. (AP) — Tim Tebow doesn’t understand why he’s such a polarizing figure, why some fans love him and so many others loathe him. He’s willing to hazard a few guesses, though. Perhaps it’s the fact that he wears his faith on his sleeve, which rubs some people the wrong way. Or the fact that he always tries to do the right things, so much so that it doesn’t always seem genuine. Or maybe it has to do with the teams he’s played for, Florida in college and the Denver Broncos now. Yes, that may be the best reason why so many people revile him in Kansas City, where the animosity between the AFC West rivals is omnipresent. It doesn’t matter who’s under center — Tebow, Kyle Orton, even John Elway — they’re public enemy No. 1 at Arrowhead Stadium. “I can’t control everyone else and what they think,” Tebow said. “Something I learned about early at Florida is only worry about what I can control, and that’s my

attitude, my effort and how I treat people. If I control those things, then I know I’m on the right track.” Well, he BRONCOS certainly VS. CHIEFS seems to be on the right When: Noon track. today Since taking over Where: Arrowthe starting head Stadium job, the for- Line: Chiefs mer Heis- by 3 man Tro- TV: CBS phy winner (channels 5, has guided 13, 205) Denver to wins in two of his three starts, and the Broncos (3-5) are just a game back of the Chiefs, San Diego Chargers and Oakland Raiders heading into today’s game at Kansas City. Who would have thought that after losing four of their first five? Broncos coach John Fox, for one. He’s the one who ultimately made the decision to bench Orton, the tried-and-true,

prototypical NFL-style passer in favor of Tebow, who excels running an optionstyle offense that gives him the ability to use his bulldozing size, quick feet and often flawless decision-making. “I think first and foremost Tim’s a wonderful young man. I understand a lot of his popularity and he’s earned that, where he’s been, what he’s done in college football,” Fox said, “and right now he’s defining what he’s done in pro football.” It hasn’t been an easy adjustment for anybody. Fox had to send a good chunk of the playbook through the paper shredder when he put Tebow under center, and harken back to his days coaching college football at Utah, Kansas and Iowa State to figure out the best way to use him. There are still plenty of play-action bases, seven-step drops and all those other plays that are ubiquitous in this pass-happy era of pro football. But now there’s the read-option, too, where Tebow takes the snap out of

the shotgun and essentially has three options: throw the ball to one of his talented wide receivers, pitch it to Willis McGahee or one of the other Broncos running backs, or simply tuck it in and run himself. The third option may result in a pounding the likes of which Fox would prefer his quarterbacks avoid, but the truth is that Tebow is laying just as big a pounding on defenders. “You got to get to him,” Chiefs defensive end Wallace Gilberry said. “He’s a real tough guy, a powerful runner. You see guys hit him at the knees almost getting knocked out.” Sounds like enough to make any defender dislike him. “You got to be even more spot-on when you go against someone who can actually beat you in the running game,” linebacker Derrick Johnson said. “He’s a heck of a running back when he Marcio Jose Sanchez/AP Photo decides to run the ball.

Bronco LB idolizes ex-Chief Thomas The Associated Press

A hybrid linebacker with a multitude of pass-rush moves and wearing No. 58 will be tormenting the quarterback again inside Arrowhead Stadium today. And if his style looks a little bit like that of the late Derrick Thomas, well, it’s because Denver Broncos rookie Von Miller patterned his game after the Hall of Famer. Be on the lookout Matt Cassel, Miller has made it his mission to show respect for his boyhood idol by sacking the Kansas City Chiefs quarterback over and over. Not that the affable Miller expects Chiefs fans to cheer for him should he drive Cassel to the turf, even if the

spin moves were inspired by Thomas, who died in 2000 from injuries he sustained in a car crash. Growing up, Miller was mesmerized by the artistry of Thomas coming around the edge. He wears No. 58 — a jersey that’s been retired by the Chiefs — as a sign of his profound respect for Thomas. He’s also piling up sacks just like his idol once did. Miller already has 6 1/2 this season, tying him with San Francisco’s Aldon Smith for the NFL lead among rookies. “It’s definitely going to be special, going in there and wearing No. 58 in a stadium I definitely want to play well in and in a way that he would be glad for me wearing his

number,” Miller said. “He had fanatical effort and relentless pursuit to the ball. I try to have that same effort.” Miller has been everything the Broncos (3-5) envisioned when the team selected him out of the Texas A&M with the second overall pick last April. Sure, he’s had growing pains this season, leading to Miller trotting off the field when the Broncos utilize certain packages. But in passing situations, Miller’s usually the one in the middle of things, terrorizing the quarterback. Earlier in the season, Miller had a streak of at least one sack in five straight games. And that was with passrush partner Elvis Dumervil

hobbled by a sore shoulder and a high right ankle sprain. But with Dumervil healthy, they were finally able to unleash a potent 1-2 punch that Miller has dubbed “Batman and Robin.” The dynamic duo shared a sack of Oakland quarterback Carson Palmer last weekend and combined to hit him five times. “It was good to get Bruce Wayne back,” Miller cracked. “Sacks, they just don’t come one at a time; they come in bunches. Hopefully this week Elvis can get three or four.” Miller wouldn’t mind that kind of sack production, either. After all, his idol, Thomas, once had an NFL-record seven sacks in a game at Arrowhead.

No. 6 Oregon upends Luck, No. 3 Stanford The Associated Press

No. 6 Oregon 53, No. 3 Stanford 30 STANFORD, CALIF. — LaMichael James ran for 146 yards and three touchdowns, and Oregon sprinted past Stanford. James ran for scores from 1, 4 and 58 yards and had Stanford (9-1, 7-1) defenders slipping all over a slick field. The Ducks (9-1, 7-0) ended the nation’s best winning streak at 17 games — which the Cardinal began after a loss in Eugene more than a year ago — and can clinch the league’s North Division crown over Stanford with a win in one of their final two games. Andrew Luck threw for 271 yards and three touchdowns with two interceptions and a fumble. Stanford had five total turnovers. No. 1 LSU 42, Western Kentucky 9 BATON ROUGE, LA. — Alfred Blue and Kenny Hilliard each scored two touchdowns, and LSU overcame a slow start. One week after playing most of LSU’s 9-6 overtime victory at Alabama, Jordan Jefferson made his first start of the season against the Hilltoppers, hitting eight of 14 passes for 168 yards, including a 59-yard scoring strike to Rueben Randle. LSU (10-0), which came in favored by nearly six touchdowns, led only 14-7 at halftime before dominating the second half.

No. 4 Alabama 24, Mississippi State 7 STARKVILLE, MISS. — Trent Richardson rushed for 127 yards and a touchdown, and Alabama’s defense gave up just 131 total yards. Alabama struggled again with field goals, missing two of them in the first half after missing four in last week’s loss to No. 1 LSU. The Bulldogs averaged just 2.2 yards per play. Tcu 36, No. 5 Boise State 35 BOISE, IDAHO — Casey Pachall threw a 25-yard touchdown pass to Brandon Carter with 1:05 left, then connected with Josh Boyce on the go-ahead two-point conversion, and Boise State’s Dan Goodale booted a 39yard field-goal attempt wideright as time expired. Pachall threw for 473 yards and five touchdowns as the Horned Frogs (8-2, 5-0) secured a clear path to the Mountain West Conference title and snuffed out the Broncos’ hopes of playing in the BCS championship game. After Broncos running back Drew Wright fumbled in TCU territory with 2:26 remaining, Pachall marched the Horned Frogs down the field, capping a seven-play scoring drive with a TD pass to Carter to close to 35-34. TCU coach Gary Patterson made a gutsy call to go for the lead instead of a tying kick. Boise State (8-1, 3-1) had won 35 consecutive home games.

No. 14 Georgia 45, No. 24 Auburn 7 ATHENS, GA. — Aaron Murray threw four touchdown passes to surpass Matthew Stafford’s school record, and Georgia moved within one win of playing for the Southeastern Conference championship. The Bulldogs (8-2, 6-1) won their eighth in a row with a dominating performance in the Deep South’s oldest rivalry. They raced to a 35-7 halftime lead over the stunned Tigers (6-4, 4-3) and finished with their biggest win in the series since 1946.

STANFORD QUARTERBACK ANDREW LUCK (12) IS UPENDED after getting off a pass against Oregon on Saturday in Stanford, Calif. No. 8 Arkansas 49, Tennessee 7 FAYETTEVILLE, ARK. — Dennis Johnson accounted for 140 total yards and a pair of touchdowns, and Arkansas won its sixth straight. No. 9 Clemson 31, Wake Forest 28 CLEMSON, S.C. — Chandler Catanzaro kicked a 43-yard field goal as time expired, and Clemson rallied from 14 points down in the second half to win the ACC Atlantic Division title.

No. 13 Michigan State 37, Iowa 21 IOWA CITY, IOWA — Kirk Cousins threw for 260 yards and three touchdowns, and Michigan State took control of the Big Ten’s Legends Division. No. 15 South Carolina 17, Florida 12 COLUMBIA, S.C. — South Carolina quarterback Connor Shaw ran for 88 yards and two touchdowns. The win gives South Carolina six SEC victories.

No. 22 Michigan 31, Illinois 14 CHAMPAIGN, ILL. — Fitzgerald Toussaint ran for 192 yards and a touchdown and backup quarterback Devin Gardner threw a key TD pass for Michigan. Denard Robinson didn’t play after a big third-quarter hit. Details about his injury weren’t available. West Virginia 24, No. 23 Cincinnati 21 CINCINNATI — Geno Smith threw for 372 yards and led a fourth-quarter touchdown drive that rallied West Virginia past Cincinnati — which lost both quarterback Zach Collaros and control of the Big East race. Eain Smith blocked Tony Miliano’s attempt for a tying 31-yard field goal as time ran out, giving the Mountaineers (7-3, 3-2) a win they needed to stay in contention.

KU women Davis-less ————

Jayhawks to open without leader By Matt Tait

It’s not the way Kansas University women’s basketball coach Bonnie Henrickson would have drawn it up, but KU’s eighth-year coach will deal with it. When Henrickson’s Jayhawks tip off the 2011-12 regular season at 2 p.m. today against Western Michigan at Allen Fieldhouse, they’ll be without All-Big 12 forward Carolyn Davis, a junior who is listed as day-to-day because of a stress fracture. “It’s not good for us,” Henrickson said. “But I’m always Davis about trying to find a positive, and I think it’s an opportunity for some of those other kids to step up and produce. I think it’s good for the young post players, and it’s good for Tania (Jackson) and Aishah (Sutherland). There’s more responsibility on them to catch and finish and be a post presence.” If ever there were a team to do it against, the Broncos would be it. Ten of Western Michigan’s 14 players are underclassmen, and WMU brings back just one starter from last year’s 9-21 team. “We have a little bit of an advantage on them because we’ve got all these kids back,” said Henrickson of her squad that returns seven players

TV: Knology (cable channel 6). and four starters from last season. “What’s tough is, we’ve got ’em on film once, and it was just such a blowout it was tough to tell. I think it was 70-20 at one point, and I think they ran five halfcourt offenses.” Senior Miame Giden, a 5-foot-11 forward who averaged 11.7 points per game during the 2010-11 season, led the Broncos with a team-high 13 points during a 94-35 exhibition victory against Indiana Tech on Nov. 3. WMU used a formula very familiar to the Jayhawks to come away with

the victory. Forty-four of the Broncos’ points came in the paint, and they outrebounded Indiana Tech, 61-27. Freshman guard Michelle O’Brien gave the Broncos an unexpected boost down low with 10 rebounds. She also scored 13 points in her first college game. Sophomore center Rachel Adaline added 10 points, including 6-for-6 shooting from the free-throw line. “These guys will screen more than we’ve seen in the first two (exhibition) games,” Henrickson said. “I think they’ll try to get into some more halfcourt offense. It should be a good test.” KU was led in exhibition play by junior Angel Goodrich, who averaged a teamhigh 14 points per game to go along with five assists. Davis (13 ppg), junior Monica Engelman (13 ppg) and senior Sutherland (10) also contributed double-digit scoring during KU’s two preseason games. Davis shot 75 percent from the field and led the Jayhawks with seven rebounds per game. The Jayhawks have won six straight season openers and enter the season after running through two exhibition games by an average score of 76-52. Although firstgame jitters are normal, Henrickson said she expected her players to be ready to go as soon as they hit the floor. “Having had the opportunity in the exhibition games, to get in the uniform and the lights are bright and you can smell popcorn, nerves shouldn’t be an issue,” she said.

be a team game, and that’s what coach (Bill Self) instills in us, and it’s the mindset we have. We go out there and play good team defense, we feel we can stop whoever.” KU’s offense clicked on Friday with 30 assists versus five turnovers. “That’s very impressive. It shows we know how to find the open man and have a lot of unselfish people who know how to take care of the

ball,” Teahan said. “It’s something we want to continue to build on.” A good ball-mover, Teahan had an assist against no turnovers Friday after dishing six assists versus one turnover in the exhibition season. He also had four rebounds Friday and eight boards in the two exhibition games. “Conner is good, man,” KU senior guard Tyshawn Taylor said. “He hasn’t had a chance to play because of Brady (Morningstar) and Tyrel (Reed) being in the same class as him. He’s comparable to those two guys as far as shooting is concerned. He’s 6-51⁄2 and can rebound

from that position. He’s a fifth-year senior who knows what coach expects of him, knows his role. He’s just a good player.” !

Landen Lucas, a 6-9 senior from Westview High in Portland, Ore., tells jayhawkslant. com he had a great time on his official recruiting visit to KU. He will choose between KU, Cal, Stanford, Tennessee and Washington. He said he hoped to make a decision by tonight. “I’ll hopefully do a verbal commitment by then,” he said Saturday. “I plan to call the coaches and let them know, and then I’ll sign on Monday or Tuesday.”

Don’t put up with sister’s terrible behavior Dear Annie: Recently, my sister, “Linda,” became furious when a friend of mine politely declined to do an unreasonable favor. Rather than accept no for an answer, she tried to manipulate other people into strong-arming him into changing his mind. When that didn’t work, she caused a scene and stormed out. While such behavior is typical for her, this particular event happened at the rehearsal dinner the night before her son’s wedding. Linda is so narcissistic that she needs to trump everyone else. If you don’t go along with her, retaliation is swift and heartless. My punishment was her telling me she would no longer participate in her share of care-giving for our mother, who is in poor health and suffering from dementia. That was the last straw for me, and I ended whatever relationship we had. Linda has no friends (no surprise there), and her husband, while a fine man, does not possess many social graces himself. So here is my dilemma. My wife, friends and therapist tell me that terminating the relationship was the healthiest thing to do. In the back of my mind, however, I wonder what are the responsibilities of a good

issues, and we hope she will someday be willing to address them. Dear Annie: This is a new one for me. A friend’s daughter-in-law is expecting her first child. She and her husband will allow the wife’s mother to be at the hospital for the birth of the baby. Then, no one will be permitted to see the child for the first six months. Is this a new childrearing philosophy, or are these parents nuts? — Never Heard of It brother. I don’t want to enDear Never: This is a new able unhealthy behavior, but one for us, too. We think the I wouldn’t abandon Linda parents are either overproif she were mentally ill and couldn’t help herself. She has tried therapy several times over the years, but quits just as she is beginning to show signs of possessing kindness and empathy. Linda was never much of a sister to me, and frankly, it’s peaceful with her out of my life. I just have this niggling feeling that a brother’s love should be unconditional. Is this an unrealistic notion, or is it a call to be a bigger person? — Uncertain Brother Dear Brother: Unconditional love does not mean you have to put up with rotten treatment. It means you still love Linda, in spite of her shortcomings, and if she truly needs you, you will be there. But it does sound as if she has some mental health

TLC looks at Muslims in America

Leave it to TLC, home of “Jon & Kate” and “Sarah Palin’s Alaska,” to make the ordinary seem controversial and the controversial seem ordinary. “All-American Muslim” (9 p.m.) takes a glance at five families from Dearborn, Mich., home to one of America’s largest Muslim populations. It boasts the nation’s largest mosque, and the high school football team has to reconcile the practice schedule with the observance of Ramadan, the Muslim holy month in which it is forbidden to eat or drink between sunup and sundown. ‘‘Muslim” is clearly intended to show American viewers how assimilated many Muslims have become and how very different some American Muslims are from each other. We meet Shadia, a rock fan who is covered in tattoos and piercings, much to the chagrin of her traditional headscarf-wearing sister, Suehaila. Fouad seems very much like your typical driven high school football coach, but one who tries to pray five times a day. Businesswoman Nina appears completely westernized to all, including her Muslim neighbors, and they don’t think highly of her opening a nightclub in Dearborn. Not because it’s a nightclub, but because she’s the owner. Nice Muslim girls just don’t do that. Among the first rituals we see is the very modern but still traditional Muslim wedding between Shadia and Jeff, her American boyfriend, who first agreed to convert to Islam, disappointing his IrishCatholic mother. Clearly a call for tolerance and understanding, “Muslim” never transgresses the boundaries of cable and TLC programming. The focus remains on clothes and weddings, materialism and the thin veneer of religious ritual. We never meet a Muslim training to be a doctor or professor or anybody who thinks very much or very deeply about anything. If that is the measure of Americanism on cable TV, then these families pass with flying colors. If there is such a thing as a halal cupcake shop, I’m sure the folks at TLC will find it.

Nebraska-bound on “Dexter” (8 p.m., Showtime).

JACQUELINE BIGAR’S STARS For Sunday, Nov. 13: Choose to relate individually this year. Others will respond better, and you’ll feel as if your message is heard more clearly. If you are single, many would like to be your suitor. It will be your choice. If you are attached, you experience more closeness. Gemini zeros in on your bottom lines. The Stars Show the Kind of Day You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult Aries (March 21-April 19)  Others settle down, making interaction much easier. Use your incredible imagination and merge it with a friend’s. Tonight: Just don’t be alone. Taurus (April 20-May 20)  Let go of restraint, and go with the unexpected. You might want to have a long-overdue discussion, whether you like it or not. Tonight: Go to a favorite restaurant. Gemini (May 21-June 20)  You are a hard person to stop once you get going. You have a sense of being a little down and wondering what you really want from a child or a new friend, if single. Tonight: All smiles.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)  Play it low-key, understanding what is going on. You actually could be surprised by what you learn. Tonight: Ask, and you shall receive. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)  Keep your focus on someone you might see or hear from every day. This person could be unusually down or exhausted. Tonight: Where the action is. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)  Take charge with a changeable partner or situation. You cannot make someone be consistent, but you can accept his or her moodiness. Tonight: A must appearance. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)  You could be inadvertently pushing someone away. If you are overwhelmed by a present situation, putting it on the back burner could be best, as you will be more relaxed. Tonight: Go for something different. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)  Another person makes a strong overture. This person knows exactly what he or she wants. You are smart enough to read between the lines. Tonight:

Dinner for two. Sagittarius (Nov. 22Dec. 21)  Search out friends before finalizing plans. You might enjoy yourself a lot more if you invite a pal along. If you are attached, a child could be most unpredictable, as could be your sweetie. Tonight: Let others decide what they want. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)  Stay direct with an associate. Get a head start on some work or a project. You could be vague about an expense or uninformed. Tonight: Just for you. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)  Others might be more serious and sedate, but no one is enjoying the moment like you. Let your hair down and reveal your authentic self. Tonight: So what if tomorrow is Monday? Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)  You might be very tired and need some personal time. Whether to include your family in your plans or non-plans is your call. Tonight: At home. — The astrological forecast should be read for entertainment only.

Romney’s political shifts stir criticism Public workers get By Steve LeBlanc Associated Press

BOSTON — When he was running for Massachusetts governor in 2002, Mitt Romney’s campaign courted voters at a Boston Gay Pride weekend by handing out fliers proclaiming “All citizens deserve equal rights, regardless of sexual preference.” Just a year later, Romney emerged as a leading voice against gay marriage, opposing the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court’s ruling overturning the ban on samesex marriage. With Romney’s positions evolving on everything from abortion to gay rights, embryonic stem cell research to health care, the Republican presidential candidate has faced charges of political opportunism from Republicans and Democrats alike. In a Web video last month, Texas Gov. Rick Perry highlighted Romney’s shifts on health care and illegal immigration and reminded voters, “You cannot lead a nation by misleading the people.” Obama’s senior strategist, David Axelrod, posed this question to reporters in a conference call last month: “If you are willing to change positions on fundamental issues of principle, how can we know what you will do as president?” Romney’s answer from last Wednesday’s debate: “I think people understand that I’m a man of steadiness and constancy.” To counter the criticism, he said he’s been married to the same woman for four decades, has been a member of the same church his entire life and worked at one company for 25 years. Romney, who is leading opinion polls in the GOP race, hopes that the argument will help him get be-

yond what dogged his 2008 campaign. This time, the electorate’s focus on the troubled economy may overshadow Romney’s shifts. The former venture capitalist and Harvard Business School alumnus is counting on it as he plays up his business experience. “With the economy being the absolutely overriding issue, even in the GOP primaries where the social conservatives are typically in control, maybe he’s finally found an election cycle that plays to his sweet spot,” said Boston University communications professor Tobe Berkovitz. “The planets are all lining up.” Still, Perry and Romney’s other rivals portray him as a political chameleon . Romney’s history offers plenty of fodder, beginning with his gradual about-face on abortion.

Storm highlights decades of repeat issues By Dave Collins and Susan Haigh Associated Press

HARTFORD, CONN. — A storm hits Connecticut and causes hundreds of thousands to lose power. Utility companies take a week or longer to restore it. Public outrage leads to state investigations. Officials order service improvements. It’s a cycle that repeats itself in the Land of Steady Habits. The problems that arose after the freak October snowstorm and Tropical Storm Irene in August are similar to ones that cropped up after other major storms dating to Hurricane Gloria in 1985, an Associated Press review of state regulatory reports shows. Gov. Dannel P. Malloy, legislators and other state officials say it’s time to finally fix long-standing problems such as utilities not being quick enough in bringing in out-ofstate crews, inadequate tree trimming and poor commu-

nication with government officials after storms. They also want to hold utilities more responsible for performance troubles, possibly by issuing fines. “Our state was hit twice in a short period of time by devastating weather events that created a lot of havoc and revealed vulnerabilities that should have been addressed years, if not decades, ago,” Malloy said. Power outages are expected during any big storm. But electricity company officials say the October storm and Irene were highly unusual, historic events that caused unprecedented damage to trees and wires, making the cleanup and power restoration much more difficult and time-consuming compared with other storms. The Oct. 29-30 storm downed scores of trees and utility wires, leaving 3 million homes and businesses in the Northeast without power. Hardest hit was Connecticut, where a state re-

cord of 850,000 outages was set only two months after Tropical Storm Irene caused a then-record 830,000 power failures. Many utility customers went more than a week without power after both storms. Government officials and outraged residents called for having more crews in place ready to work before storms hit and better tree trimming. They also wanted the state’s largest utility, Connecticut Light & Power Co., to improve how it shares information about restoration work with local officials and to provide better estimates of when the power will be back on. But it’s not the first time Connecticut residents have heard such promises. Gloria hit New England on Sept. 27, 1985, knocked out power to more than 700,000 Connecticut utility customers at its peak and left many in the dark for a week or longer. After investigating the response to Gloria, the state

Department of Public Utility Control asked both CL&P and The United Illuminating Co., which serves the Bridgeport and New Haven areas, to improve communications. Government officials had complained they were not getting accurate information about power restoration work fast enough. Tree-trimming programs were also questioned. A year after Gloria, another storm caused nearly 220,000 outages in the state. A DPUC investigation found problems at CL&P including slow dispatching of damage assessment crews, inaccurate damage assessment and inaccurate estimates of when power would be restored. After those two storms, regulators launched a broader investigation of the adequacy of the utilities’ systems. That probe resulted in a landmark report in 1988 that included a host of new reporting requirements for both companies that still stand today.

Aging Americans stay home with aid of ‘villages’ WASHINGTON — Weaver Shepperson has been blind for nearly 50 years. He’s lived alone since his wife died in 1999 and needs transportation several times a month to visit his doctors. Yet he doesn’t plan to move out of the rowhouse in Washington’s historic Capitol Hill neighborhood where he’s lived since 1955. The 80-year-old is part of a burgeoning movement among senior citizens determined to stay in their homes as long as possible. With the help of nonprofit groups known as “villages,” they’re enjoying many of the perks that residents of retirement or assisted-living communities receive, at a fraction of the cost. Shepperson pays $530 annually for membership in Capitol Hill Village. It enables him to receive a ride to the doctor’s office from the village’s network of volunteers. The village also takes care of his grocery shopping. Without it, he says he might have had to move into assisted living.

Capitol Hill Village is one of the oldest and most robust of the roughly 65 active villages nationwide. It’s been around four years and has more than 350 members. While the village movement is gaining momentum, it’s an option unavailable to the vast majority of elderly Americans. There also are questions about the long-term viability of the organizations. The desire of Americans to live at home instead of moving into retirement or assisted-living communities — known as “aging in place” — has always

been strong. AARP surveys consistently show that nearly 90 percent of people 65 and older want to stay in their homes as long as possible. But what if you have to stop driving? Or can’t change light bulbs, maintain the yard or get into the attic? For most people, there are few options beyond relying on relatives or neighbors. This was the dilemma that led a group of friends in Boston’s Beacon Hill neighborhood to create the village concept. Beacon Hill Village began accepting members in 2002; Capitol Hill Village was

one of the first to successfully duplicate the model. In addition to rides and other favors that volunteers can provide, most villages offer what they call a “concierge service” — a connection to a list of prescreened vendors who can provide discounted services such as plumbing or home repair. About half of the nation’s villages are concentrated in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic. Between 10,000 and 13,000 people are members, according to the Village-to-Village Network, which tracks and coordinates villages around the country. The Washington area is a hotbed for villages, with five within the District of Columbia and three more in the Maryland and Virginia suburbs. Those statistics, though, underscore the limitations of the village concept: Most are located in densely populated, relatively affluent urban or suburban communities. Their members are also overwhelmingly white — more than 90 percent, according to a survey by the University of California, Berkeley.

boost from sick time ‘cash-out’

By Michael Hill Associated Press

Denny Johnston received more than a pension and a handshake when he retired from the Washington state corrections system in 2009. Because he used only a quarter of his sick days over a three-decade-long career, he was able to convert $15,000 of unused sick time into a tax-free account to pay health care expenses. While the benefit is extremely rare in the private sector, where use-it-or-loseit policies prevail, state and local government workers around the country can convert unused sick time into straight cash, retirement credits or use them to pay for health care when they retire. The perk can add up. In Ohio, 2,164 state retirees eligible to cash out sick time at a 55 percent rate received an average of $5,646 in the 2011 fiscal year. More than 4,300 departing Florida employees who retired or otherwise left state service last fiscal year averaged about $3,000 in sick-time payments. At least five received 10 times that. “I worked for 30 years, and I worked in what could be a high-pressure type situation from time to time,” said Johnston, a 60-year-old Olympia resident who held a series of jobs in the Washington Department of Corrections, from counselor to manager, before retiring. “I didn’t make as much money as I could have in the private sector, but I did enjoy having things like seniority rights and having benefits.”

Converting sick time At least half the states allow eligible employees to turn unused sick time into cash when they retire or quit. More than a dozen others allow retiring employees to apply the unused sick time to pension credits or other benefits, according to a nationwide review by The Associated Press. Many city and county workers around the country also receive the benefit. It’s at the local level where sick time cash-outs tend to attract attention after especially large payouts, such as an outgoing Miami-Dade county manager whose benefit package included $78,984 in unused sick time. These headline-grabbing cases typically involve administrative employees with higher salaries. Precise counts showing how many employees receive sick time “cash-outs” are difficult because benefits vary among union contracts and even can differ by hiring date. Public vs. private employees Proponents of the benefit say the ability to monetize leftover sick days encourages good attendance and is a fair trade-off for what they believe is lower pay for public workers. Research differs on whether public or private employees have higher pay but generally shows that public employees have far better pensions, retiree health benefits and job security. Critics see the sick time cash-outs as yet another example of government employees receiving benefits that are not available to those who work in the private sector. Just 4 percent of private

I worked for 30 years, and I worked in what could be a high-pressure type situation from time to time. I didn’t make as much money as I could have in the private sector, but I did enjoy having things like seniority rights and having benefits.” — Denny Johnston, a 60-year-old Olympia resident who held a series of jobs in the Washington Department of Corrections sector companies offer sick leave cash-outs to employees, according to the Society for Human Resource Management, an Alexandria, Va.based organization for human resource professionals. “The fact is the private sector largely survives and works efficiently without these sorts of things,” said Andrew Biggs, resident scholar at the American Enterprise Institute, a conservative-leaning think tank. Sick time cash-outs cost relatively little compared to budget-busting public employee benefits such as the promise of lifetime pensions and retiree health care. Connecticut, for example, recently spent $8.1 million for the benefit out of a budget of roughly $20 billion. Arizona spent at least $10 million a year for the last three years on its retirement accumulated sick time benefit. In Kansas, 289 retiring employees outside the university system received $3.2 million in fiscal 2010. In Pennsylvania, 2,200 of the 3,274 employees who retired took cash payouts for unused sick time at a cost of $3.1 million during the fiscal year that ended June 30, 2010.

Pensions, collective bargaining The issue has generated relatively little attention compared to that given to public pensions and collective bargaining for government workers. New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, a critic of some public union benefits, has been the rare governor to spotlight the practice, telling one audience this year, “There’s no way to justify paying people cash for not having been sick.” Steven Kreisberg, collective bargaining director for the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees, said it’s unfair to target any single benefit for criticism. It’s more accurate to examine the entire compensation package. “This is something that the government determined that it was necessary for them to retain the workforce. It was something obviously that was put into place in much earlier years when pay was lousy,” said state retiree Rick Carney of Meriden, Conn. Carney, 64, said he had almost 400 unused sick days when he retired in 2003 after a 33-year career at the state labor department, much of it overseeing hearings on labor issues related to unemployment and medical leave. Because of a cap on the number of days he can claim, he figures he received roughly $14,600 in sick time payments between 2006 and 2008.

IF THE GRASS NEAR THE BASE of an oak tree is dying, it likely isn’t due to excess acidity from fallen leaves or acorns. Dead or yellow grass at the base of a tree is more likely a sign of root competition or other factors.

Oak leaves have little effect on soil pH


lthough oak leaves do have the potential to acidify soil, they are highly unlikely to be causing problems in your yard in northeast Kansas. If you are having trouble growing grass (or anything else) under an oak tree, the real culprit is most likely root competition, low light and soil compaction, or some combination of all three. As far as oak leaves and acidification, I know your neighbor or your friend or your relative who gardens may have told you otherwise. They probably heard about it from their neighbor who heard about it from their neighbor. In

some parts of the country, some oak disease problems have been associated with oaks growing in acidic (low pH) soils. Here, however, there are more oak diseases and problems associated with basic (high pH) soils.

The simplest way to know for sure whether your soil pH is less than ideal is to test the soil. Take samples from several locations around the tree and mix them together to get a representative sample of the area. Use a knife or a trowel to take slices of soil four to six inches deep. Test the soil pH with a pH testing kit or through the K-State Research and Extension–Douglas County office at 2110 Harper St. Testing kits are available at most garden centers. (If you test through the Extension office, you will also get recommendations to correct the soil pH if necessary.)

If pH is not the problem, fight soil compaction by core aerating the lawn under the tree. Select grass seed that contains three to four varieties of turf-type tall fescue, as they perform the best in shade trials in this area. Grass seed labeled as “sun/shade mix” or “shade-loving” often contain grass species that are inappropriate for our area. Avoid overwatering as it will encourage shallow root growth. Another good indication that soil is not too acidic for lawn grasses is when it is too basic for good oak tree growth. Ever see a pin oak with light green or yellow leaves? Chlorotic pin oaks

are common in the Midwest. In oaks, chlorosis is caused by an iron deficiency that is almost always the result of the tree’s inability to take up iron. Iron is tied up in high pH soils. Adjusting the soil pH requires applications of sulfur and may take years. Researchers in France who studied the relationship between oak leaf litter accumulation and soil acidity note that the trend was different in each of the 30 oak trees in the study. Soil clay content plays a role in soil acidification, as well as soil organisms, bark and the soil parent material. The only conclusion drawn from the study was that on

average more acidification and litter accumulation occurred near the trunk base. Pine needles carry the same reputation as oak leaves and acorns, but also have little effect on soil pH. White pines are a good indicator — they often suffer from iron chlorosis in high pH soils just like pin oaks. Another option if you are having trouble growing grass under an oak or pine tree is to cover the area with mulch or a droughtresistant ground cover. — Jennifer Smith is the Horticulture Extension Agent for K-State Research and Extension in Douglas County.

In about 1910, Gilbert made a model called “Orleans” that had a glass case. Gilbert also made clocks with cases made of china, metal or wood. During World War II, when metal was scarce, papier-mache cases were made. The company was bought by General Computing Machines Co. in 1957 and was sold again in 1964.

Filmmaker documents band’s ‘Final Tour,’ dying member By Chansi Long

G.J. Echternkamp set out to make a music video of one of his favorite bands, Split Lip Rayfield. Instead, he ending up documenting the band’s final tour with their original lineup and some of the more intimate moments with the late Kirk Rundstrom, who was diagnosed with esophageal cancer during the making of the documentary and would eventually die from the disease. The result is “Never Make It Home,” a poignant and frank documentary. Chansi Long talked with Echternkamp about his experiences with the band, his original vision of the film and his next project. Chansi Long: Why did you select Split Lip Rayfield as the focus of your film? G.J. Echternkamp: It more or less happened by accident. My first intention was to make a music video for Split Lip as they toured the West Coast. I had become a fan of their music a few years earlier when a friend insisted that I listen to one of their CDs. While filming the music video. Kirk (Rundstrom) asked me to come to Kansas and film his solo tour. At this time we became friends, and when I later heard that Kirk was going on a what was being called his “Final Tour” I knew I had to be there. Not just as a filmmaker, but as a friend and a fan. CL: How did you know the band? GE: After listening to their CDs I simply just sent an email on their website stating my desire to make a Split Lip music video. They eventually agreed, and I didn’t actually meet them until they played their first show in Los Angeles. CL: What did you originally imagine the project would become? GE: A music video. A press kit, maybe. It wasn’t until Kirk decided to go on his final tour that I thought I might actually make a documentary. Even at that point my goal was more to preserve the shows themselves then make a feature film. I was kind of flying by the seat of my pants ... I knew I had to be there, and I wasn’t really thinking about the end result. CL: When and how did you learn about his illness? And how did you guys come to the decision to continue filming? GE: I heard about Kirk’s illness in an email. At that time everyone thought that Kirk was going to beat it, and it was only a matter of time before he was back on his feet again. When the doctors reevalu-

Special to the Journal-World

G.J. ECHTERNKAMP SET OUT to make a music video of one of his favorite bands, Split Lip Rayfield. Instead, he ending up documenting the band’s final tour with the original lineup and some of the more intimate moments with the late Kirk Rundstrom.

“NEVER MAKE IT HOME” SCREENING Where: Liberty Hall, 643 Mass. When: 7:30 p.m. Nov. 26 Plot: Set across America’s heartland, this moving documentary captures the rowdy, heart-wrenching and ultimately joyous performances of Kirk Rundstrom’s Final Tour where each show was played as it would be the last. Price: $10, tickets available at the Liberty Hall box office. ated his diagnosis as terminal, it was devastating. Only a few months later Kirk made the decision to go off chemo and tour again. I called him and suggested filming the shows. He was all for it. I think it was clear that somebody should preserve these performances, and in the process maybe tell Kirk’s story. CL: Rundstrom’s illness jumps into the forefront of the film, altering the original vision, but ultimately capturing something deeper and more profound. Could you speak a bit about this? GE: Kirk changed quite a bit in the time that I knew him. The Kirk of the final tour may have lost some of his hell-raising energy, but he seemed much more at peace. I believe Kirk’s diagnosis helped him to focus on the things that truly mattered in his life: his family and his music. CL: How much traveling did you do while filming? GE: A ton! I traveled all over the place. Wayne Gottstine started calling me a hobo. I don’t think I was smelling great. CL: Can you tell me about the filming process? Did you stay with the band? GE: I stayed with different band members, friends of the band and so on. My goal while filming was to portray what Kirk was going through, but at the same time stay out of his way and not make the tour harder in any way. I know the camera

can make people self conscious at times, and I knew that Kirk was going on this tour to forget his pain and illness. The last thing I wanted was to get in the way or hassle anyone. So I tried to find a balance between documenting the tour and staying out of everyone’s way. CL: What was your time frame on filming? How long? GE: I gathered tour footage off and on over the course of about two years. I edited together a rough cut, then I went back later for some more interviews, to better explain some things that didn’t come across clearly in the edit. CL: Did your relationships with the band become strained or more intimate? GE: More intimate, for the most part. There were some strained moments, but in the end we all became friends and I’m very glad for that. CL: What will viewers take away from this movie? GE: My goal has always been to expose audiences to Kirk’s incredible spirit and his music. Split Lip Rayfield is a band that I think the whole world should know about. I’m trying to get the word out there, one screening at a time. CL: What is your next project? GE: I’m directing a lowbudget Roger Corman film. It’s been a ton of fun and not a little bit of stress. But it’s really exciting to be making my first narrative feature film.

Billy Crystal tweeted Thursday, in what some construed as a joke, “Am doing the Oscars so the young woman in the pharmacy will stop asking my name when I pick up my prescriptions. Looking forward to the show.” Now, two sources familiar with the 2012 Oscars telecast who were not authorized to talk publicly confirmed that Crystal would host, replacing the recently departed Eddie Murphy. A spokeswoman for the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences did not immediately return a call seeking comment. At age 63, Crystal would be the oldest host of the show since Bob Hope in 1978. Crystal, who has hosted some of Oscars’ most successful modern telecasts, had been a popular public choice since Murphy departed Wednesday. The chorus first began when Crystal appeared on the 2011 show presenting a tribute to Hope. During an August appearance at the Aero theater in Santa Monica, Crystal admitted that he got “itchy”

after last winter’s cameo on the Oscars and that he’d be ready to talk about a return to the global stage of the gala. “It got to be too much after a while and the sameness in my life,” he said. “That’s why I pulled back. And then when I thought I might want to do it again, they were on to other people. It’s always fun. It’s really hard, but maybe one or two more times? I don’t know. They know where I am.” Crystal, at the Santa Monica event, elaborated on the stress and pleasures of the one-of-a-kind Oscars gig. “I so appreciate that you like when we do it,” he said. “And I had a good time doing them. I did eight of them. And it takes a long time. I sort of stopped doing it — I would do it in patches — and then fortunately, I was doing other things that I wanted to do. (It takes a long time) in order to do the things we did — and (those things) change the way a host was working on the show.” The 84th Academy Awards will be broadcast live by ABC on Feb. 26 from the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood.


The most significant thing about Janeal is CONTINUED FROM PAGE 14C that she is indefatigable. There’s nothing that’s A choir is born too much work, nothing Before she co-founded the children’s choir, Krehbiel was that’s too much trouble.” working in public schools as a vocal music teacher and also as choral director for Bethel College’s children’s choir. As part of her duties, she was attending conventions put on by the American Choral Directors Association, and each time she went, she found herself completely enamored by the professional children’s groups. “Every time I found myself going over to the site of the children’s choirs and listening to them and observing directors and I said, ‘Oh my word, this is where I need to be. I want to start a professional children’s choir,’” she says. “When I found that Lawrence didn’t have a professional children’s choir, and my sister was already living there, I said, ‘Boy, if there’s an opening there, I’m going to get a job and I’m going to start one from the ground up.’” Krehbiel took a job teaching vocal music at South Junior High, and paired with her sister, Marilyn Epp, to get the choir up and running. “It was definitely her idea,” says Epp, who has been the choir’s accompanist since the beginning. “Frankly, now that I think of it, I didn’t know what I was getting into — I mean I didn’t know that it would last forever.” But she isn’t totally surprised at the choir’s success. “The most significant thing about Janeal is that she is indefatigable,” Epp says, her voice clear of any sisterly hyperbole. “There’s nothing that’s too much work, nothing that’s too much trouble.” And work it was: Only 42 kids — none of whom were cut in auditions — made the first choir. But in five short years, the Lawrence Children’s Choir started getting national buzz at a large convention in Dallas. “That was one of those standing ovations in a middle of the concert situations — an absolutely astonishing musical highlight for the kids involved and for Marilyn and I,” Krehbiel says. “That’s kind of when things took off.” In 1999, the children were chosen to sing at that same national convention where Krehbiel had first been drawn to professional chil-


— Marilyn Epp dren’s groups. “That was a spectacular experience, too. By then we were selling CDs and, personally, I was flying all over the United States doing workshops with children’s choirs and conducting all states,” Krehbiel says. “And in 2009, we were again selected to sing — in fact, we were the opening choir for the 2009 convention of the American Choral Directors Association, and five of the seven pieces we did were premieres. That was extremely exciting and rewarding musically.”

Changing lives For the children of the Lawrence Children’s Choir, Krehbiel’s vision, work ethic and expectations have been more than just exciting and rewarding — they’ve been life-changing. Gabe Lewis-O’Connor says meeting Krehbiel — first as his junior high choral director and later through the Lawrence Children’s Choir — influenced his entire career. He had initially studied piano and made singing a secondary interest, but that all changed when he saw what he could accomplish with group music. After spending three years under Krehbiel, he decided to make group vocal performance his professional goal, something he realized when he joined the group Chanticleer after college. “Her standards are uncompromising, and that’s exactly what’s needed,” he says. “I sound like a grandparent here, but I think that’s something that’s almost impossible to appreciate until later — that there was immediately this sense of accountability and personal responsibility and dedication. But what that afforded was the incredible music-making experience and the feeling that’s like no other, that you are prepared, that you’re sharing music with people that they can hardly believe is coming from kids that age. That only happens because of leadership like Janeal’s.” Now that she’ll be retired from both the choir and teaching (she left public eduwill include a hefty dose of video footage. “The more filmed material we do, the more I’m impressed with how accessible the tech is,” Morton says. “For relatively cheap, you can green screen now, you can use special effects now. We’re in a media time where anybody can learn how to do these things. You can podcast, you can set up a website, you can use software that’s easy to use. There’s no reason someone can’t go out and do something like this.” Director Emily LowrenceFloyd says the cast of the production has refined its craft and is prepared for a memorable performance. “We’ve got a lot of talented people working on the show

L AWRENCE J OURNAL -W ORLD cation in 2005 after 37 years), Krehbiel has tossed around the idea of sharing her knowledge of working with children. She says she’ll continue to teach workshops, but that she’s also been approached about doing an educational video and has thought of writing a book or two. Since the choir’s board approved her as Krehbiel’s replacement, Welch has been scouring music and brainstorming ways the choir can keep funds in its coffers — it’s no secret the group has been hit hard by the decision to cut off public funds to the Kansas Arts Commission. Funding from the commission netted about $15,000 for the group in grants and matching funds from the National Endowment for the Arts. Last year, about $13,000 of that money went to scholarships for students who could not pay all or some of their choir tuition. “It’s really tough. Because what we want to be spending our time doing is teaching kids and helping them grow as musicians and offering them opportunities. And instead, we’re spending a lot of time trying to figure out if we should have this kind of auction or that kind of auction,” Welch says. “For a little grass-roots organization like ours, we don’t have a big staff, we don’t have a lot of huge donors, we don’t have an endowment.” Krehbiel says that while those funding difficulties have been stressful, they didn’t factor in her decision to leave. Rather than let that recent painful matter cloud her memories, she’d like to remember her time working with everyone from preschoolers to the senior citizens pushing 100 in the group’s affiliated senior choir. She says working with her students of all ages is what she’s going to miss most when she exits into the wings at Carnegie Hall. “One of my all-time favorite comments is from one of my former students, who said, ‘You know what I liked best about choir? I liked when you gave us something really hard and we didn’t think we could do it, and then we got it,’” Krehbiel says. “When that young male said that to me, I just sort of thought, ‘OK, this is why I teach.’ To let kids experience the possibilities of going from something very difficult to something that becomes familiar and possible.” — Staff writer Sarah Henning can be reached at 832-7187.

and it makes this second attempt even stronger, because we learned a lot from the last one. We’ve got about a week left to this rehearsal process and it’s going really smoothly. We learned a lot from last time and this time is even better. I think it’s going to show in the final product.” Lowrence-Floyd says the best part of the show is the miscellany of comedic themes. “We basically have a venue to experiment with all types of comedy. It’s fantastic that the Lawrence scene can support something like this. Audiences are awesome here. They come because they want to laugh, and that’s fantastic.”

IN “HOLLYWOOD LEFT AND RIGHT: HOW MOVIE STARS SHAPED AMERICAN POLITICS,” author Steven J. Ross looks at show business personalities like the liberal Charlie Chaplin, left, and the conservative Arnold Schwarzenegger, right, among many others. hard at their politics as they did at their screen careers,” Ross writes. “They fit the Founding Fathers’ model of citizen-statesmen in that they had a vision of the world they wanted to see and they were willing to work to usher in that change. And for that, they deserve our respect.” It may be a challenge to get those who respect Reagan to do the same for Jane Fonda and vice versa but Ross lays out their work and lives fairly, doing his best to keep a level playing field. Ross has previously published a book on silent film and politics; he shows how Chaplin, an early box-office king, became drawn into politics to the detriment of his career. Digging into the unpublished manuscript of Chaplin’s onetime assistant, Ross writes that Chaplin, who had to drop out of school as a child to become a street performer, was an anxious yet eager autodidact. His films show an increasing political awareness, beginning with sympathy for the poor and disenfranchised and moving to 1940’s “The Great Dictator,” which mocked a fictional, Hitler-like fascist ruler. Americans were reluctant to embrace his satire, and his wartime speeches that supported then-ally Russia were used to criticize him later, along with his protests against the nuclear bomb (his many marriages to very young brides didn’t help). He was among the high-profile Hollywood names bandied about by the anti-Communist House Un-American Activities Committee, and in 1952, when the British-born Chaplin traveled to London, he

was charged with being a Communist. He didn’t return to the United States for 20 years. Robinson also suffered at the hands of HUAC. When he was a boy in Romania, his brother was beaten to death by an anti-Semitic mob, prompting the family to emigrate to the U.S. Growing up poor in New York, Robinson found his place in Hollywood, starring as the lead gangster in 1931’s “Little Caesar” and becoming one of its hottest stars. In the ’30s and ’40s, he was an outspoken anti-fascist, and he put his money where his mouth was — more than a quarter of a million dollars from 1939 to 1949, roughly $3.1 million today. His association with one anti-fascist group, which became known for its communist ties, as well as anti-redbaiting stance had him called a Communist during HUAC testimony, generating so much acrimony that he couldn’t find work. He spent three years fighting the charges, eventually caving in and appearing as a chagrined witness before HUAC and writing an article, “How the Reds Made a Sucker out of Me.” His career never recovered. Those who’ve read histories of the Red Scare in Hollywood like Victor Navasky’s “Naming Names,” thorough explorations of Reagan’s political evolution or other investigations of these periods may be frustrated by the gloss Ross takes. While his book is extensively footnoted and deeply researched, a lot of context is lost. Of course, he’s covering a century of history through 10 individuals, which is a lot to fit into 500 pages. Yet if

all politics is local, it is also personal and temporal. The personal gets a solid treatment, yet there is not much larger perspective on social movements outside of those the individuals touched, the social environments in which they made their choices, or the larger historical contexts. This is at its worst in explaining the importance of Heston, in his role as head of the National Rifle Association, and the 2000 election. “Pundits credit gun owners in West Virginia — where Democrats outnumbered Republicans two to one — with tipping the state and therefore the presidential election in 2000 to George W. Bush. Rarely has a movie star had such a profound importance on national life,” Ross writes. Nowhere in the chapter does he mention the role of Florida’s recount or the Supreme Court in the election’s final result. If there is a theme, it is that activist leftists in Hollywood have often leveraged their professional positions to create artworks that support their ideology: Belafonte, Fonda and Beatty all became producers as well as stars. Often this worked to their financial benefit, but not always. Those on the right — Murphy, Reagan, Heston and Schwarzenegger — tended to use the lessons they’d learned from appearing on screen and having a public Hollywood life to build a second act in politics. These conclusions, however, are left to be drawn by the reader. Ross is excellent at providing details, but he never quite figures out what they mean; he never provides the big picture.

St. Louis Post-Dispatch

If you like history and you love Stephen King, good news arrived Tuesday in the form of “11/22/63,” his latest novel and one of the most ambitious tales he’s crafted. The book begins innocently enough as we meet a high school English teacher, Jake Epping, in — where else? — a small town in Maine. Epping has just endured a divorce and is teaching adult English to a GED class to pick up a few extra bucks. One of the essays he reads, written by no less than the high Nan Renbarger, school janitor, moves him job coach, to tears. And as Jake tells us Overbrook many times throughout the “‘Psychedelic: Optical and Visual Art Since the 1960s.’ book, he is not a crying man. How can he not cry when I was just looking through the oversized books, and this one the janitor, Harry, spills his life story onto cheap notecaught my eye.” book paper, remembering the night in 1958 when his father “murdirt my mother and two brothers and hurt me bad.” That essay leads Jake to attend Harry’s GED graduation and take him for a celebratory burger to a diner, Al’s. And

the wind is blowing, the flowers fading oldies music playing, “don’t get around much anymore,” four students nearby inventing words on a Scrabble board, my life companion nibbling muffins, sipping decaf, and here am I reading a book of poetry that surpasses understanding (I am an “explainer” of poems)

going to Al’s is the event that makes Jake’s life turn on a dime. Because the diner’s owner has a secret. Now that he’s dying of cancer, he must share it with someone he can trust. Someone who’s single (that convenient divorce) and childless. And Al decides Jake is the one he’ll tell his secret — that he has found a hole, a ripple, whatever you want to call it — that lets him travel back in time to 1958. King is at his finest describing the shock and sense of wonder Jake feels when he takes his first trip back to a Maine street he never knew. Where everybody smokes. Where a thick fountain root beer costs a dime. And where kids still know their manners, like this: “‘Yes sir?’ Sir, yet. And nothing sarcastic about it. I was deciding that 1958 had been a pretty good year. Aside from the stench of the mill and the cigarette smoke, that was.” And no matter how long Jake — or Al before him —

stays when they travel back to 1958, when they come back to 2011 Maine, only two minutes have passed. Now Jake must decide whether he will fulfill Al’s dying request — to go back in time and somehow stop Lee Harvey Oswald from killing the president in Dallas in 1963. Much of this satisfying tale is told in the details as King lavishes us with descriptions and behaviors of the late ‘50s and early ‘60s, as seen from Jake’s point of view. The music, the gigantic cars, the cheap gas and the unshaken assumption that America is the land of the free, home of the brave — for the most part. As Jake travels back to the 1950s, he becomes George Amberson. In one of King’s regular touches, he also crosses paths with people, places and characters from earlier books. He makes a stop in Derry, home of “It,” where he also meets up with Bev and Richie. A red and white Plymouth Fury, just

it’s just a game, or is it? suppose it’s life in search of itself, a vision or a truth! so give it up for words crafty words, elixir phrases language forming a cosmos a world stretching beyond the sun a universe narrowing to a coffee house here am I, book in hand, wondering: this author, this poet, flowering my tiny garden with hidden meaning, luring me into spading, pruning. — Lee Carlson, Lawrence

Republicans take heart: Hollywood is not as liberal as you think. Steven J. Ross convincingly shows in “Hollywood Left and Right: How Movie Stars Shaped American Politics” that since its early days, the movie industry has been as quietly conservative as publicly liberal. After all, where did Ronald Reagan come from? Reagan may be the most successful actor-turned-politician, but Ross makes the case that his transition owes much to George Murphy and the conservative legacy built by Louis B. Mayer at MGM. Mayer was an up-from-nothing immigrant who became a titan ruling Hollywood’s grandest studio back when the studio system was Hollywood. He also turned his ambitions to politics: He was chair of the California Republican Party, and his friendship with Herbert Hoover led him to be the first Hollywood executive to spend a night in the White House. He had no compunctions about combining work and politics: He brought on executive secretary Ida Koverman, who served as a political tutor and liaison, and he required MGM staff to contribute to the causes he chose. His efforts nurtured the thinking and political career of Murphy, who became head of the Screen Actors Guild and U.S. senator and in turn served as mentor to Reagan, who went from heading SAG to governor of California and president. Ross combines biographical sketches with detailed political history of 10 Hollywood figures, five left and five right, to show that the dream factory has been equally devoted to politics on both sides of the aisle. He moves chronologically, beginning with Charlie Chaplin (left) and following with Mayer (right), Edward G. Robinson (left), Murphy (right) and Reagan (left to right), Harry Belafonte (left), Jane Fonda (left), Charlton Heston (left to right), Warren Beatty (left) and Arnold Schwarzenegger (right). “They were leaders, not just followers.

Lawrence Children’s Choir Going out co-founder, director will retire after Carnegie Hall performance with a bow


Mike Yoder/Journal-World Photo

THE 50 MM, F/1.8 LENS at left is lighter, less expensive and can capture photographs in much lower light than the heavier, more expensive 24 mm-105 mm, F/4.0 zoom lens at right. Despite being known as the forgotten and “normal” lens in 35 mm photography, the 50 mm is a stellar performer that can capture subjects in natural perspectives that approximates the way our eyes see the world.

JANEAL KREHBIEL IS RETIRING NEXT SPRING from the Lawrence Children’s Choir she directed and founded with her sister.

Janeal Krehbiel known on international level By Sarah Henning

Carnegie Hall is a musical destination — the type of résumé-crowning institution upon which dreams are made. To stand under its lights, in front of an applauding audience, is to have made it. In April, Janeal Krehbiel will take her last bow with the Lawrence Children’s Choir. And she will do so looking out into the audience at Carnegie Hall. Krehbiel, the choir’s cofounder and its first and only artistic director, will lead the choir in a performance April 1 at the famed

music hall — her third performance there — before saying goodbye to the choir she nurtured into an international success. “I feel like I have a lot of teaching left in me, but I just feel like it’s time for someone else to take the reins. And I always said, I want to leave this position without someone dragging me off the stage saying, ‘You’ve been here too long, you’ve done this too long,’” says Krehbiel, 65. Taking over April 3 will be Carolyn Welch, Krehbiel’s longtime assistant artistic director, who is more than flattered to be tasked with continuing the

creation of someone both she and many others admire. “I think a lot of people in Lawrence don’t realize, but she is quite highly regarded on a national level and to a degree on an international level. … She’s incredibly well known and respected among people who do this kind of work,” says Welch, who began volunteering with the choir in 1996. “And, certainly, I want to honor that tradition of excellence and continue the mission of the JANEAL KREHBIEL DIRECTS A PERFORMANCE with the choir going forward.” Lawrence Children’s Choir on Oct. 18 at Presbyterian Manor, 1429 Kasold Drive.

Comedy group locked and loaded for another show By Michael Auchard Special to the Journal-World

MATT GAUS, LEFT, AND CHRIS NELSON, members of Card Table Theatre, rehearse a skit from the upcoming “Loaded For Bear No. 2: In the Woods” production scheduled for the Black Box theater at the Lawrence Arts Center.

After a successful initial run at the Lawrence Arts Center, 940 N.H., in February, Card Table Theatre’s “Loaded for Bear” comedy series is primed for a second round of sketches and video silliness. “If you liken it to music,” co-producer Andy Morton says, “this is our sophomore album. I think it’s great that we’re doing a second show. Now we want to push it further and get more people involved and see these shows.” Morton says the cast’s main goal is to make each other laugh — then the rest comes naturally.

LOADED FOR BEAR NO. 2: IN THE WOODS What: Comedy/video sketch show put on by Card Table Theatre When: 8 p.m. Friday and 7:30 p.m. and 10 p.m. Saturday Where: Lawrence Arts Center, 940 N.H. Price: $9 “It’s a fun journey,” Morton says. “You start with the blank page and then, all of a sudden, you have a two-hour show and get to put that on. At the end of this, we’ll all look back and say, ‘Maybe, they didn’t like all the jokes, but they liked some.’” Fellow co-producer Matthew Gaus says this iteration of “Loaded For Bear” serves to expand the group’s audience and further sharpen the group’s comedic skills.

“We ended up selling out both shows and we added a third show,” Gaus says. “This time around I think we’re just trying to keep pushing the limits and see how big this audience is. We know the audience is out there.” The comedic impetus is simple for Gaus. “You go to work all day and you can sit on the couch and stare blankly at ‘Two Please see LOADED, page 10C

In my continued look at lenses and their various strengths and weaknesses, I’ll focus here on what many people refer to as the forgotten lens. Before the 1990s, purchasing a camera usually meant bringing home a kit that included a single-lens reflex camera body and a 50 mm lens. People often refer to this lens as a standard or normal lens because it closely approximates our eyes’ perspective and how we view our environment. Photographs created with a 50 mm lens have a very natural look. Although they are less expensive to produce, they yield some of the sharpest images of any lens. They are also often the fastest, meaning they have large apertures that enable capturing photographs in very low light. I have a Canon 50 mm fixed focal length lens that cost me $100. It weighs 4.6 ounces, can fit in a pocket and has a blazingly fast, large aperture of F/1.8. I also have a Canon zoom lens that goes from a wide-angle focal length of 24 mm to 105 mm. Yes, I know that the 24-105 lens includes the 50 mm focal length and might appear redundant. But the zoom lens is four times as large, weighs 24 ounces, cost more than $1,000 and has a maximum aperture of only F/4.0. I can keep taking photographs in lower light with my 50 mm, where I might be out of luck with the 24-105 zoom. Plus, if you were out for a day of photography, which would you rather carry? Most point-and-shoot photography hobbyists today use cameras with wide-angle to telephoto zoom lenses. They probably pass right by the 50 mm focal length. It doesn’t have the dramatic effect or arm-spreading perspective that a wide-angle lens has or the powerful reach of a telephoto. But put a fixed focal length lens like a 50 mm on your camera and you immediately eliminate choices, allowing you to concentrate on the natural, Please see LENS, page 10C
