Former child molester now advocate for treatment By Christine Metz cmetz@ljworld.com

Amid last week’s media frenzy over Penn State’s child sex abuse scandal, Wayne Bowers was reminded of a not-too-dissimilar incident that happened at Kansas University decades earlier.

INSIDE

In 1972, Bowers, who at the time was a 26-year-old assistant sports information director for the KU athletic department, was convicted of enticing a minor. “It’s certainly been on my mind the past week,” Bowers said in a telephone interview on Monday. At 66, Bowers is retired, lives

in Oklahoma and takes care of his aging mother. He has spent much of the past 20 years advocating for the treatment of sex offenders. He’s headed two national groups, Sex Offenders Restored through Treatment and Sex Abuse Treatment Alliance. In that role, he has spoken at many conferences and

frequently been interviewed by national news media. “I’m proud of where I am today. But I’m very sorry about what happened there,” Bowers said of his conviction in Lawrence. In 1969, with KU’s football team fresh off an Orange Bowl appearance, Bowers had a big

break when he landed the newly created position of assistant sports information director at KU. A few years later he was about to get another big opportunity, the chance to provide color commentary on KU’s radio network for an upcoming Please see TREATMENT, page 2A Bowers

Don’t tell Lawrence developer Tim Stultz that the city’s apartment market is overbuilt. His 224 one-bedroom apartments near Clinton Parkway and Crossgate Drive are all leased and produce a waiting list of about 40 people each August. That’s why he wants to build another 136 units. But don’t tell neighbors that live near the Remington Square development that they should have to live with more apartments. If approved, the project would bring the total number of apartments to more than 800 along the stretch of Clinton Parkway between Inverness and Crossgate drives. Lawrence city commissioners at their meeting tonight will have to tell somebody something they don’t want to hear. Commissioners will consider a rezoning and site plan for Stultz’s Remington Square expansion. Neighbors are fighting the project and are urging city commissioners to say enough is enough. “It is OK to have some of what they have done out here,” said Steven Hertzog, who lives near the site. “But now they are just inundating us with it. Now, it seems like it is being forced down our throats.” The project is being recommended for approval by the Lawrence-Douglas County Planning Commission and the city’s planning staff, which says the development fits with the long-range plans that have been developed for the area. The city recently approved the Inverness Park District Plan, which removed apart-

SOME RESIDENTS NEAR REMINGTON SQUARE APARTMENTS, 4100 W. 24th Place, are opposed to plans to expand the complex by 136 units. The apartments are on land to the south of Clinton Parkway and north of 24th Place, between Crossgate Drive on the east and Inverness Drive on the west. This photograph looks to the southwest with the intersection of 23rd and Crossgate at center right, and Remington Square Apartments at top. The proposed area for expansion is on the east side of the current complex.

Many homeowners bought property next to the large tract of vacant ground between Inverness and Crossgate when it was approved to be a retirement complex. But those plans fell apart several years ago. ment development as an approved use for sites right at the corners of Crossgate and Inverness but allows for an increase in apartment density on the remaining land between the two corners. Neighbors, though, said the additional 136 apartments will create everything from noise to traffic problems. The traffic issues are worrisome to some because of the proximity to Sunflower School. “Traffic will create safety issues out here,” said Aaron Clopton, an area res-

ident opposing the project. “This area always will be attached to kid traffic.” But Stultz said he is proposing steps to minimize the impact on neighbors. Stultz has agreed to make the zoning of the property conditioned upon the fact that the apartments will never be larger than one-bedroom. Normally, multifamily zoning allows for a certain number of units, but each unit can range in size from one to four bedrooms. “We don’t compete with the student housing com-

plexes that rent by the bedroom,” Stultz said. “The people who come to us are tired of having a roommate.” Stultz said the conditions he’s willing to place on the zoning will give the neighbors some certainty that the development won’t be turned into a more traditional type of student apartment complex in the future. Neighbors, though, said they’ve grown weary of seeing past plans for the area fall apart. Many homeowners bought property next to the large tract of vacant ground between Inverness and Crossgate when it was approved to be a retirement complex. But those plans fell apart several years ago, and neighbors are unhappy that previous city commissions have allowed the area to become one of the larger

apartment complex districts in the city. “The city of Lawrence has let this neighborhood down,” Hertzog said. “The developers out here just keep coming back every few months asking for another rezoning. They’re just wearing the neighborhood down. “They have a right to ask, but the City Commission needs to stand up and say the people who voted us in don’t want this anymore.” Neighbors have filed a legal protest petition with the City Commission. That means the project will need to win four out of the five votes on the commission to move forward. City commissioners will meet at 6:35 p.m. today at City Hall. — City reporter Chad Lawhorn can be reached at 832-6362.

Area communities selected for entrepreneurship loan program By Chad Lawhorn clawhorn@ljworld.com

Three Douglas County communities have been awarded $166,000 in funds to begin loaning to expanding rural businesses or startups. Baldwin City, Eudora and Lecompton were selected as 2011 Entrepreneurship Communities through NetWork Kansas on Monday. The program ultimately will allow the communities to jointly make about $166,000 in loans to existing businesses or startups within their communities. “We’re hoping that it will really spark some growth and development in the communities,” said John Fiore, a Eudora council member and one of the organizers of the local effort.

“We think it can really help those businesses that need a little capital to expand or offer a new product, or for those budding entrepreneurs who need that last bit of capital to get their dreams off the ground.” The program is part of a larger effort by NetWork Kansas, a state-created organization that aims to promote small-business growth in the state. The organization has provided $1.54 million worth of funding to start similar loan programs in more than a dozen other communities in Kansas. Since 2007, the loan programs have resulted in the creation or retention of about 350 jobs, according to the organization. The state funds the program by awarding tax credits to the communities, which in turn sell the

credits to get the cash needed to fund the loan program. The loan program is designed to last for many years. As businesses repay the loans, the money will be put back into the program and loaned again, Fiore said. Leaders from the three communities have appointed financial professionals from the area to serve on a committee that will evaluate the fiscal feasibility of the applications. Douglas County businesses interested in applying for loans should contact Collin Bielser, the economic analyst for the city of Eudora, at 542-4111 or at cbielser@ cityofeudora.com. — City reporter Chad Lawhorn can be reached at 832-6362.

McGowan said Cormack would be required to register as a sexual offender for 25 years. District Attorney Charles Branson said the victim agreed with the plea. “We are relieved the victim will not have to face another trial in this matter,” Branson said. “Given the time that had passed, it was important for her to know that Mr. Cormack was held accountable for his crime.” Cormack remains free on bond.

District Attorney Charles Branson on Monday warned Douglas County residents to be aware of a possible driveway and home repair scam after a resident recently lost $1,500. Branson said a group of men are associated with a white one-ton General Motors pickup truck with an extended cab and Illinois license plates. The truck is estimated to be a 2000 model or newer.

“The men have already scammed one Douglas County resident out of $1,500 for a driveway repair scam,” Branson said. “If these individuals show up at your home, do not hesitate to immediately contact law enforcement or call 911.” Any potential victims can also call the district attorney’s consumer protection unit at 841-0211.

Jurors deliberated for about three hours Monday before reaching a verdict, and they also found the crime to be an act of domestic violence. A domestic violence “tag” will be placed on his criminal record, under a provision of a recent Kansas law meant to track repeat domestic violence offenders. The legislation was named for Kansas University law student Jana Mackey, who was murdered in Lawrence in 2008.

people ask him how he knows he won’t offend again. “The thing I can answer, I know the boundaries I must keep. I know the triggers I have to stay away from; I know the places I can be at and not be at,” he said. “As long as I do all those things, follow all those things, I guarantee you I am safe today.” The incident at Penn State, Bowers said, should be used as a teaching tool, one that gets athletic departments, schools and other youth organizations talking. Jerry Sandusky, the former assistant Penn State football coach accused of sexually abusing eight victims, showed that sex offenders are more than “dirty old men in a trench coat,” Bowers said. They are coaches, teachers, religious leaders and law enforcement officers. And, most of all, they are not strangers. “There were clues in my life that, had people been aware of it, they might have talked about it,” Bowers said. — Reporter Christine Metz can be reached at 832-6352.

District to spend over $1M after reallocation

1 | NEBRASKA

TransCanada to shift planned pipeline Canadian pipeline developer TransCanada will shift the route of its planned oil pipeline out of the environmentally sensitive Sandhills area of Nebraska, two company officials announced Monday night. Speaking at a news conference at the Nebraska Capitol, the officials said TransCanada would agree to the new route, a move the company previously claimed wasn’t possible, as part of an effort to push through the proposed $7 billion project. They expressed confidence the project would ultimately be approved. Alex Pourbaix, TransCanada’s president for energy and oil pipelines, said rerouting the Keystone XL line would likely require 30 to 40 additional miles of pipe and an additional pumping station. The exact route has not yet been determined, but Pourbaix said Nebraska will play a key role in deciding it.

It was largely good news out of Monday’s school board meeting — hedged with a little bit of scholarly caution. The Lawrence school board unanimously approved a reallocation of its budget that will provide the district $1,150,200 in available funds. The vote moves the money from the contingency reserve cash balance to the general fund, where it can be spent by the district. The district plans to spend

about half of the money on staff wages, though it’s not yet clear how many new jobs may be created or how any specific raises might work, except in a few cases outlined below. Chief operations officer Kyle Hayden explained that allocation of the funds will primarily go toward increasing support and instructional staff, including:

$412,500 for new elementary staff to keep up with increased enrollment;

$65,450 in funding for clerical staff, including one new po-

sition of attendance secretary at Free State, and support services, with four more contract days for middle SCHOOLS school guidance counselors;

$47,250 in increased available funding for substitute staff,increasing pool of available subs and raising daily rate of certified sub teachers by $3 per day;

$45,000 in increased available funding for custodial staff,

targeted toward the middle schools, where educational staff frequently have to assist in custodial work when staff members are sick or away. The other chunk of funds — $580,000 — will go toward bringing the nonwage budget back to where it was before this year. Superintendent Rick Doll explained that “the district has been very frugal” and the spending is effectively from the district’s savings account to scale Please see SCHOOL, page 4A

Negotiators unveil spending bill

Gaining confidence and skills

House-Senate negotiators agreed Monday night on a bundle of spending measures for the ongoing budget year, blending cuts to NASA and community development programs while averting cuts to nutrition programs like food stamps. The approximately $180 billion measure would fund the day-to-day departments of Agriculture, Commerce, Justice, Transportation and Housing and Urban Development, as well as the space program. It also contains stopgap spending legislation to keep the government running until Dec. 16 to buy lawmakers more time for a raft of other spending bills, but many of those measures are freighted with controversy. Without the stopgap measure, the government would partially shut down this weekend. Lawmakers face a midnight deadline on Friday to act on the measure, which is part of a bundle of three spending bills unveiled Monday night. House and Senate leaders promised votes this week on the legislation, which would forestall a partial shutdown of the government.

Surgeons to try deep-chilling patients Suspended animation may not be just for sci-fi movies anymore: Trauma surgeons soon will try plunging some critically injured people into a deep chill — cooling their body temperatures as low as 50 degrees — in hopes of saving their lives. Many trauma patients have injuries that should be fixable, but they bleed to death before doctors can patch them up. The new theory: Putting them into extreme hypothermia just might allow them to survive without brain damage for about an hour so surgeons can do their work. In a high-stakes experiment funded by the Defense Department, the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center is preparing to test that strategy on a handful of trauma victims who are bleeding so badly from gunshots, stab wounds or similar injuries that their hearts stop beating. Today when that happens, a mere 7 percent of patients survive. Get cold enough and “you do OK with no blood for a while,” says lead researcher Dr. Samuel Tisherman, a University of Pittsburgh critical care specialist. 3 | NEW YORK CITY

Ex-Penn St. coach proclaims innocence A former Penn State football assistant coach charged with sexually abusing eight boys in a scandal that has rocked the university said Monday that there was no abuse and that any activities in a campus shower with a boy were just horseplay, not molestation. In a telephone interview Monday night on NBC News’ “Rock Center,” Bob Costas asked Jerry Sandusky if he’s a pedophile and Sandusky responded, “No.” Meanwhile, The New York Times reported late Monday that close to Sandusky 10 additional suspected victims have come forward to authorities since Sandusky’s arrest, according to people close to the investigation. The paper said police were working to confirm the new allegations. Sandusky, once considered veteran coach Joe Paterno’s heir apparent, was arrested more than a week ago and is charged with sexually abusing eight boys, some on Penn State property, over a 15-year span. “I am innocent of those charges,” the 67-year-old Sandusky said. “ ... I could say that I have done some of those things. I have horsed around with kids. I have showered after workouts. I have hugged them, and I have touched their legs without intent of sexual contact.”

Such tasks weren’t easy for these students when they began their work in August because they have intellectual and developmental disabilities. But today, they’ve mastered the skills and have become a real asset at LMH. Tracy Brosseit, support specialist for LMH Endowment Association, said Kelsey Leonard, 20, has been a “huge help.” Leonard has worked at the front desk answering phone calls and helping visitors. She files paperwork, enters data

Llara Baska, a Project Search coordinator, said there are about 150 such projects nationwide. She said Lawrence school district pursued a grant from the Kansas Council on Developmental Disabilities last year to start one in Lawrence, and they received a one-year $9,000 grant. The schools then approached LMH and Kansas University to see if they would be host sites. They also partnered with Kansas Department of Social and Rehabilitation Services’ Vocational Rehabilitation and JobLink, a division at Cottonwood Inc. that helps adults with disabilities find work. In addition, there’s a group of Free State High School students who interact with the Project Search participants and provide advice on topics such as good manners, social skills and ap-

The parents of a 19-year-old Lawrence woman who died in a 2010 crash in west Lawrence have reached a $100,000 settlement with the insurance carrier for the other driver involved, a 23-yearold Overland Park man, according to Douglas County court records. Lawrence attorney James Wisler earlier this month filed a petition asking a Douglas County judge to approve the settlement between his client, Cecilia Paez, mother of Mary Grace Paez, who died in the Oct. 14, 2010, crash, and Geico Insurance, carrier for the other driver, Sean Barrett Walker Walker. Paez’s father, Vincent Paez, would also receive part of the settlement, according to the filing. Lawrence police have said Paez died when her Nissan Sentra that was southbound on Inverness Drive was struck by a 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee driven by Sean B. Walker, 23, of Overland Park, that was headed west on Clinton Parkway at 1:30 a.m. that day. Investigators at the time of the accident said they believed Paez made a complete stop at a flashing red light when she pulled into the intersection and the Jeep entered the inter-

She works from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. weekdays and is evaluated just like other employees. It’s similar to an unpaid internship. “We include her in everything that we do, and we’ve enjoyed having her around here,” Brosseit said. “She’s really been a great big help.” The students work in different departments across the hospital — materials management, medical records, skilled nursing, rehabilitation — and soon will rotate to a new department. In March, they will begin looking for a paid job in the community.

BRIEFLY Budget cuts hurting music programs TOPEKA (AP) — A group of music educators is encouraging grass-roots advocacy to protect music programs in Kansas schools. Members of the Kansas Music Educators Association say they are fighting against a steep drop in funding for their programs. KMEA president Craig Manteuffel of Hays recently told the state board of education that budget cuts have hurt school districts across the state, although some suffered more than others. He says a 2010 survey conducted by the association found that since 2007, 185 music education positions have been dropped, including 124 positions eliminated in the 2009-2010 academic year. The Topeka Capital-Journal reports many of the 190 school districts that responded to the survey also reported reduced travel budgets, increased fees and teachers being asked to teach in subjects outside of their expertise.

Tribe leaders to mark Kan. 150th anniversary TOPEKA (AP) — Leaders of five Indian tribes plan to join Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback this week for a commemoration of the 150th anniversary of the state’s admission to the union. The event is set for 3:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Kansas State Historical Society in west Topeka. Participants will include leaders from the four tribes with reservations in Kansas — the Iowa, the Kickapoo, the Prairie Band Potawatomi and the Sac and Fox. Also joining them will be representatives from the Kaw Nation, now based in northern Oklahoma. The Kaw were a prominent tribe in what became Kansas, but treaties before statehood in 1861 reduced the tribe’s lands and its members were pushed into Oklahoma after the Civil War.

propriate dress. “It’s another layer of support,” Baska said. She said the Project Search participants have a range of disabilities, including Asperger’s syndrome, which is characterized by difficulties in social interaction and autism. The project began in August with 15 students; nine of them are working at KU in areas such as animal care, facilities and operations, human resources, athletics and the library. The students also meet in a classroom before and after their jobs nearly every day. They work on social and communication skills and problem solving. Recently, they’ve been focusing on job interviews. Each student has a job coach who checks on him or her a couple of times a day. They provide support and help break down tasks that might be difficult. “They’ve gained confidence, learned new skills in their departments, and they’ve proved to be good experiences,” said Mary Bentley, who is a job coach for three students at LMH, including Leonard. Leonard said she has enjoyed her job at the LMH Endowment Association and would consider a clerical job because of the experience. She’s hoping to work in skilled nursing in the coming weeks where her classmate Sorin Andrus, 19, has been located. Andrus cleans and delivers supplies and works with patients. She participates in a group exercise class and sometimes does one-on-one art projects with patients. “During the past few weeks, I’ve been making a lot of friends with the patients,” she said, smiling. Kathy Snyder has watched Andrus grow through the project as her job coach. “Sorin has done a lot with the patients and has developed a good relationship with them. She kind of helps motivate them and keeps them happy. She’s a bright light in the area she works in,” Snyder said. — Health reporter Karrey Britt can be reached at 832-7190.

Doll said the money will be spent by the end of the fiscal year — June 30 — as per state regulation. School board member Keith Diaz Moore expressed concern that the reserve account would be depleted “all in one binge,” but Hayden said that the spending would be “frugal and forward-thinking.” The more than $1 million in additional requests approved on Monday still leaves $353,347 in the reserve cash account, according to the presentation to the board by Hayden and Johnson.

Tallman, a former Auburn-Washburn school board member, spoke about per-pupil spending and achievement in several areas in Kansas, ranked against that of other states in the region and across the country. Kansas does pretty well for itself, Tallman said. The state ranks seventh in the country according to his 11 “empirical measures of educational performance” and has been seventh for 10 years. But the states ahead of Kansas — Massachusetts, Vermont, New Hampshire, Minnesota, Connecticut and New Jersey — have been improving at a faster pace than Kansas and governmental spending on education must be improved to keep standards high, he said. The board also checked in with the English as a Second Language program and heard a presentation by Jennifer Attocknie, the district’s coordinator for Native American Student Services. The dis-

trict has 572 Native American students and receives federal funding to provide tutoring and cultural enrichment programs for them. It’s a special population of students, Attocknie said, that “has specific academic issues” and the funding “helps them have an education that’s equal to other students.” The ESL program has 430 elementary students and 70 certified staff. The program’s coordinators are encouraging more staff to qualify under a new methods-based training course. As part of its consent agenda, the board approved a motion to give the go-ahead to a purchase order not to exceed $500,000 with Dell for computer repair, and an agreement with the Success by 6 Coalition for providing consultation on special needs education. — Reported Alex Garrison can be reached at 832-7261.

Restitution ordered in animal cruelty case

A Douglas County judge Monday ordered a 44-year-old Eudora man to pay more than $4,400 to the state for care of a Shetland pony he neglected to provide proper care for over a four-year period. John Steffen pleaded no contest to one misdemeanor animal cruelty charge after prosecutors in June filed criminal charges. A Lawrence Humane Society investigator in April had found the pony’s hooves had overgrown Cindy Roberts, several inches and started to community development curl. The pony, Coco, has been manager, in state custody for several Herington “No, but I got an email from months and is expected to make a friend that didn’t seem to a full recovery, assistant district be from her, so I emailed her attorney Mark Simpson said back and it still seemed off, Monday. He said Steffen told invesso I messaged for her to call tigators it had been four years me, and it was from her but it just shows how suspicious we since the family’s pony had its hooves trimmed. “It made all are.” the animal unable to walk,” Simpson said. Defense attorney James Rosenthal said Steffen had undergone a long period of unemployment, and his wife was suffering from a long-term illness. “He’s very regretful of the situation,” Rosenthal said. “I believe he’s taking responsibility.” In addition to paying restitution and a $100 fine, District Derek Bergman, Judge Peggy Kittel sentenced heating and cooling Steffen to one year on unsutechnician, pervised probation, a time in Salina which he won’t be allowed to “Scam emails, for sure. Just own any other horses. If he delete it.” violates his probation term, he faces a week in jail. “It must have been an awful condition for this animal to be in without proper care,” Kittel said.

Robber won’t need to return to prison

Luke Brinker, Kansas University junior, Lawrence “Phishing emails but nothing that’s not been obvious. Somebody sends you a link, ‘oh is this you?’ and you know, ‘well, I haven’t spoken to you for years, I don’t think you’d be intentionally sending me a link.’”

A Douglas County judge Monday said a 61-year-old man could go free after he spent more than four years in custody for a 2006 robbery of a Lawrence convenience store. Charles E. Smith entered a

2006, of robbing the Presto convenience store, 2330 Iowa, by pointing something under his shirt at the clerk and making off with contents of the register. Michael Allen, an assistant district attorney, said detectives believed Smith committed the robbery so he could buy crack cocaine. District Judge Sally Pokorny ordered Smith to serve three years on probation. Smith has already spent more than four years and five months in custody because his original sentence in the case was overturned. The Kansas Court of Appeals later overturned a jury’s 2007 guilty robbery verdict in the case, and the Kansas Supreme Court upheld the reversal saying District Judge Jack Murphy should have appointed Smith a new attorney for the trial. Smith and his defense attorney, Jim Rumsey, had disagreements about strategy for the trial. Defense attorney Elbridge Griffy said Smith missed a sentencing hearing last month while out on bond because he had gone to Mississippi to help an ailing family member. Smith said he wasn’t trying to avoid the sentence, and he came to Pokorny’s office to turn himself in. Smith said he planned to begin Bible college next month in De Soto.

Roberts pushes for Kansas gas storage inspections WICHITA (AP) — Republican and Democratic legislators in Kansas are joining ranks to support an effort to restore the state’s oversight of natural gas storage. U.S. Sen. Pat Roberts, a Republican from Kansas, plans to introduce a measure in the U.S. Senate to return control over the inspection of storage facilities within Kansas to the state. FedRoberts eral courts have ruled that states don’t have the authority to inspect the storage sites, but the federal government has declined to accept the responsibility. The storage sites have not been inspected for 19 months. The Wichita Eagle reports Monday that state officials will push for a legislative resolution in early 2012 supporting Roberts’ efforts. Roberts wants to give Kansas the authority to conduct safety inspections on 11 underground storage facilities that can hold more than 270 billion cubic feet of gas. Kansas companies hold the natural gas for passed through pipelines to out-of-state markets. The federal Department of Transportation, the lead agency in interstate gas safety, has opted not to inspect the sites The natural gas is housed in depleted oil and gas fields in Kansas. Companies pump the gas into huge caverns for storage until it is needed by utility companies. Safety is a concern following the 2001 incidents in Hutchinson that left two people dead. Natural gas escaped from an underground salt formation, migrated seven miles, rose to the surface through abandoned water wells and exploded. The two deaths occurred when a mobile home exploded. Half a city block of businesses were also destroyed. Rep. Carl Holmes, a Liberal Republican and chairman of the House Utilities Committee, said the Roberts’ bill could prevent future mishaps. “What we have at the moment is, we’re in limbo (on gas storage safety), and nobody’s looking at it,” Holmes said. In 2011, Kansas legislators did discuss the issue, with the House and Senate each voting on resolutions asking for the federal government to restore state authority for inspections. However, because of a technical issue only the House version was sent to Washington. Holmes said legislators would make sure not to repeat the mistake. Kansas Corporation Commission Chairman Mark Sievers said the state agency assisted Roberts’ staff in drafting his bill. While the KCC doesn’t lobby for legislation, Sievers said the agency supports restoring regulation and will “provide him (Roberts) with whatever further information he might request.” “Here we have a safety issue we have to deal with,” he said. Sievers also said the Roberts bill will not expand KCC regulation beyond what the agency already had been doing until last year’s court case shut the inspections down, which appeared to be effective. “We didn’t have gas explosions,” Sievers said. House Minority Leader Paul Davis, a Lawrence Democrat, said the change in federal law was the best way to protect people living near the storage sites. “It’s too bad we have to get the federal government’s permission,” he said. “If that’s what the courts say we have to do, then we have to go to Congress.”

Rules lag as factory dust explosions kill workers By Travis Loller Associated Press

NASHVILLE, TENN. — When an accumulation of sugar dust ignited and blew up the Imperial Sugar plant in Port Wentworth, Ga., in 2008, killing 14 and injuring dozens, the state responded by issuing emergency regulations on combustible dust. No Georgia workers have been killed by exploding dust since. For most of the nation, however, tighter regulations are still years away even though federal safety officials have been closely studying the threat posed by dust at industrial sites since 2003. Federal figures show that deadly explosions from finely powdered food, wood, metals and chemical happen each year in the U.S., killing and maiming multiple workers. Combustible dust has been linked to at least six deaths at industrial sites this year, five of them in separate accidents at a Tennessee plant that makes metal powders for automotive and industrial uses. Between those two accidents, another worker was

The science of explosion control is pretty simple. It’s not rocket science. If you can see your footprint or can write your name on the wall, it’s going to explode.” — Retired aeronautical engineering professor Bill Kauffman seriously injured by a fireball that investigators blame on an accumulation of iron dust at the same Hoeganaes Corp. plant in Gallatin, Tenn. These industrial sites are regulated separately from grain handling facilities like the one that exploded last month in Kansas, also killing six. While that tragedy served as a reminder of the dangers for grain industry workers, experts say there are even fewer protections for their 2.5 million counterparts around the country in other industries susceptible to dust explosions. “The science of explosion

control is pretty simple. It’s not rocket science,” said retired University of Michigan professor of aeronautical engineering Bill Kauffman. “If you can see your footprint or can write your name on the wall, it’s going to explode.” In an inspection before the deadly explosions at the Tennessee plant, dust hazards weren’t checked. Hoeganaes was fined days before the second fatal blast but not for breaking rules meant to prevent dust explosions — because there are none. The plant continues to operate. That frustrates Mitchel Corley, whose little brother died from injuries caused by one of the explosions. “Yes. I’m mad. Absolutely. They knew for certain that dust was flammable,” he said of the company. Figures compiled by the U.S. Chemical Safety Board illustrate the scope of the problem. A 2006 study reported there were at least 281 dust explosions in the U.S. between 1980 and 2005 that killed 119 workers and injured 718. In 2007, it recom-

mended that the Occupational Health and Safety Administration create workplace rules to control dust and cut down on explosions. The CSB is charged with investigating industrial accidents, but it must rely on regulatory agencies like OSHA to effect change from its findings. “Despite the seriousness of the combustible dust problem in industry, OSHA lacks a comprehensive standard to require employers in general industry to implement the dust explosion prevention and mitigation measures,” the CSB wrote in its 2007 report. OSHA decided instead to initiate a National Emphasis Program that stepped up education and inspections at plants in key industries. While the aim is to reduce dust explosions, inspectors have had to use regulations related to worker training and housekeeping because dust-specific rules are still being developed. The Chemical Safety Board says the rules currently being used are insufficient for preventing dust explosions.

City, county taking garden-plot applications The city and county are formally taking applications from individuals, businesses or nonprofits who want to use new garden spaces. Some of the dozen or so sites are being suggested for use as community gardens, where a number of neighbors could band together to grow produce. But other sites — some are as large as 26 acres — could be used by growers that are more commercial in nature. The city and county are suggesting that the sites are suitable for cultivation of plants, herbs, fruits, flowers and vegetables. City and county commissioners will make the make the final decisions on issuing licenses for the ground. There also will be a nominal fee of $1 per acre, per year for license holders. Applications are due by Dec. 16. For more information about how to apply, visit the city’s website: lawrenceks. org/common_ground.

Supreme Court to review health care overhaul By Jesse J. Holland and Mark Sherman Associated Press

WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court on Monday promised an extraordinarily thorough springtime review of President Barack Obama’s historic health care overhaul — more than five hours of argument, unprecedented in modern times — in time for a likely ruling affecting millions of Americans just before the presidential election. That ruling, expected before next summer’s Independence Day holiday, could determine the fate of Obama’s signature domestic achievement, the most far reaching domestic legislation in a generation but a political lightning rod as well. It is vigorously opposed by all of Obama’s prospective GOP opponents. The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act aims to provide health insurance to more than 30 million previously uninsured Americans. But Republicans have branded the law unconstitutional since before Obama signed it in a ceremony in March 2010. The court’s ruling could be its most significant and political decision since George W. Bush’s 2000 presidential election victory. But the justices left

themselves an opening to defer the outcome if they choose, by requesting arguments on one lower court’s ruling that a decision must wait until 2015, when one of the law’s many provisions takes effect. Legal experts have offered a range of opinions about what the high court might do. Many prominent Supreme Court lawyers believe the law will be upheld by a lopsided vote, with Republican and Democratic appointees ruling in its favor. But others predict a close outcome, with Justice Anthony Kennedy, a Republican appointee who sometimes joins his four colleagues appointed by Democratic presidents, holding the deciding vote on the nine-member court. The White House has pushed for a final ruling as soon as possible, and Communications Director Dan Pfeiffer said the administration was pleased the justices agreed to take the case now, with arguments in March. Republicans also said they were happy the high court would hear arguments on the constitutionality of the provision at the heart of the law and three other questions about the act. The central provision in question is the requirement that individuals buy health insurance starting in 2014 or pay a penalty.

Study finds patients shun free heart drugs ORLANDO, FLA. (AP) — Give people free prescription drugs, and many of them still won’t bother to take their medicine. Doctors were stunned to see that happen in a major study involving heart attack survivors. The patients were offered well-established drugs to prevent a recurrence of heart trouble, including cholesterollowering statins and medicines that slow the heart and help it pump more effectively. “My God, we gave these people the medicines for free and only half took it,” said one of the study’s authors, Dr. Elliott Antman of Harvard-affiliated Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston. In fact, the researchers had trouble just signing up patients to take part in the study. Nevertheless, Aetna, the insurance company that footed the bill, thinks this approach will save money in the long run and plans to start offering certain heart drugs free to some patients. In the study, patients offered medicines at no cost suffered fewer heart problems and saved $500 on average over roughly a year. It is no secret many Americans don’t follow doctors’ instructions. In one survey, one-third said they didn’t fill a prescription or used less medicine than they should because of cost. The researchers in this study wanted to see

what would happen if they took cost out of the equation. The study was led by Dr. Niteesh Choudhry of Brigham and Women’s, who presented the findings Monday at an American Heart Association conference in Florida.

BUSINESS AT A GLANCE

Notable

The government’s $900,000 fine Monday against an American Airlines affiliate for holding hundreds of passengers on board planes for hours on an airport tarmac may serve as a deterrent to future such incidents. But industry analysts warned that may come with the price of more canceled flights. Even before the fine against American Eagle Airlines, airlines had canceled more flights to avoid pushing up against the new three-hour limit on tarmac delays the Department of Transportation imposed 20 months ago. Now, cancellations will shoot up even more, said airline analyst Michael Boyd.

House GOP leader says deficit deal likely By David Espo Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Sidestepping controversy, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, R-Va., declined to take sides Monday on a proposal for higher tax revenues backed by fellow Republicans on Congress’ supercommittee yet expressed confidence the panel would agree on a deficit-reduction plan of at least $1.2 trillion by a Nov. 23 deadline. A proposal for $300 billion in higher taxes has stirred grumbling within the ranks of congressional Republi Warren Buffett said cans, for whom opposition to Monday that his company such measures has been pohas spent $10.7 billion to litical bedrock for more than buy more than 5 percent of two decades.

Pat Toomey, R-Pa., who outlined the plan last week in a closed-door meeting of four Republicans and three Democrats, has encountered criticism from fellow conservatives despite strong credentials as an opponent of higher taxes. “There’s been a little bit, but it’s been pretty muted,” his spokeswoman, Nachama Soloveichik, said of the response. Cantor’s spokeswoman turned aside several emailed requests for the majority leader’s views on the proposal. She said he hadn’t seen the plan, and she referred to his comments at a news conference earlier in the day when he told reporters, “I’m not going to be opining as to any reports, hypotheticals or anything connected with their work.” Despite that pledge, Cantor was bullish in predicting agreement before the deadline and adding that a fallback requirement to cut $1.2 trillion from domestic and defense programs wouldn’t be triggered.

Do the right thing The indifference to children exhibited in the Penn State tragedy cannot be tolerated under any circumstances.

t’s a toll-free number and can save a life: 1-800-922-5330. That is the Kansas Department of Social and Rehabilitation Services’ 24-hour hot line number to call if you suspect a child is being abused. Pennsylvania’s equivalent number should have been called years ago when former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky was allegedly seen sexually abusing a 10-year-old boy in the locker-room showers in 2002. The incident was reported to have been observed by a Penn State graduate assistant, who told coach Joe Paterno, who told Athletic Director Tim Curley. They and other university officials never reported the incident to authorities. More boys were allegedly abused, and no one did anything about it until Sandusky was arrested on Nov. 5. No longer can such indifference be ignored. States across the country, including Kansas, have mandatory reporting Douglas County laws. Douglas Chief Assistant DisCounty Chief trict Attorney Amy Assistant DisMcGowan, who trict Attorney prosecutes many Amy McGowan, who prosesex crimes, said she cutes many sex knew many people’s crimes, said the immediate impulse Sandusky case was to believe that was shocking. She told the sexual abuse is not Journal-World happening and to week that maybe be concerned last she knew many about the repercuspeople’s immesions of reporting it. diate impulse But, she said, be most was to believe sexual concerned about the that abuse is not hapchild. pening and to maybe be concerned about the repercussions of reporting it. But, she said, be most concerned about the child. Kansas state law requires people in certain kinds of professions to report child sexual abuse to SRS. These people — teachers, school administrators, doctors, nurses, dentists, psychologists, social workers, therapists, counselors, court officials, clergy, child-care providers, emergency personnel — have the most contact with children and are the likely ones to see the signs of abuse and neglect. Mandated reporting is required for instances that usually fall under confidentiality agreements, such as those between a doctor and patient. Those who are mandated by law to report child sexual abuse and fail to do so could be charged with a misdemeanor, which comes with a fine of up to $1,000 and six months in jail. And like the fired Paterno, the legendary Penn State coach who remained quiet and failed to report this incident to appropriate law enforcement officials, a career is also at stake. Most important is the child and his or her well-being. Adults must do the right thing, every time, no questions asked. Make the call and let the professionals determine how to handle the case.

Militants endanger any hope of peace JERUSALEM — When Hagit Ofran woke up Tuesday — within days of the 16th anniversary of the murder of Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin — she found death threats spray-painted on her door. “You are dead. Ofran, Rabin is waiting for you,” was the message scrawled in red against the white walls of her stairwell. This was the latest of the socalled Price Tag attacks that Jewish militants have carried out against peace activists, Palestinians and Israeli security forces. The attacks often follow any government move to dismantle Jewish settlements on the West Bank. They are meant to convince Israel’s leaders that it’s too costly to remove any more settlements — thus blocking any negotiated peace. Ofran monitors the expansion of West Bank settlements for Peace Now — a group that seeks a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. (Peace Now’s Jerusalem office received a bomb threat last week.) A calm, focused woman, who is the granddaughter of famed Israeli philosopher Yeshayahu Leibowitz, she carries a camera and notebook to document new settlement construction. When I asked why she does it, she replied swiftly: “I think it’s crucial for the State of Israel and the future of the Jewish people that occupation must stop.” The more the settlements expand, she said, the less likely any peace deal. “That’s why I’m doing what I’m doing.” I drove with Ofran around the West Bank as she checked on illegal outposts, the 100 or so small settlements set up in violation of Israeli law. Small clusters of trailers scattered atop hillsides, with outbuildings and cellphone towers, they expand the grid of more

than 120 official Jewish settlements that divide West Bank territory into cantons. This makes a contiguous Palestinian state less and less likely. We drove on special highways built for settlers that were offlimits to Palestinians and that further divide the West Bank. Israel pledged years ago, in several international agreements, to dismantle all illegal outposts built after March 2001. But despite the removal of a few trailers, none of the outposts has been demolished. And it’s obvious why. Young radical settlers are determined not to repeat their elders’ acquiescence to the 2005 dismantlement of settlements in Gaza. In the infamous 2006 case of Amona outpost, where only nine dwellings were demolished, thousands of so-called Hilltop Youth clashed violently with police. Ever since, Israeli authorities and security forces have been leery of the “Price Tag” of dismantling outposts (thus the

name adopted by the militants). Radical youths bent on reprisals sometimes assault police, but more often they target innocent Palestinians, destroying vehicles, houses, schools, mosques, or olive trees in hundreds of episodes. These reprisals have spilled into Israel proper, defacing Israeli Arab mosques and cemeteries, and threatening Jewish activists. Last week was the second time in two months that Ofran’s home has been hit. The outgoing Israeli military commander on the West Bank, Brig. Gen. Nitzan Alon, said Price Tag attacks “amount to terrorism”; this earned him the vilification of settlers. Maj. Gen. Avi Mizrachi, chief of Israel’s Central Command, warned that the Price Tag movement was getting out of control. Both generals blamed law enforcement officials for not stopping the militants. Police response has lacked any urgency, with only three indictments so far. Yet Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is clearly unwilling to confront the settlers. He has sought ways to “legalize” illegal settlements built on Palestinian land or to repeatedly delay their demolition. Several members of his coalition threatened to bolt if he followed court orders to take down outposts. “If this government agrees to demolish any houses,” says Dani Dayan, chairman of the Yesha settler council, “this government will not be there.” As I traveled the West Bank, I saw settler banners hanging on fences that called for activists to “Stop the Expulsion” from Givat Assaf, an outpost with about 30 trailers on the ridge of a rocky hill. Last week, at the government’s request, the court postponed its demolition for yet another six months.

The Israeli government’s cave-in to settler pressure is counterproductive for them — and for the United States. If the Israeli officials are so fearful of settler opposition that they can’t remove a few dozen illegal outposts, it’s hard to imagine them removing the tens of thousands of settlers that would be required by a peace treaty. Moreover, the government’s complacency about Price Tag attacks carries deep dangers for Israel. Instead of confronting Jewish terrorists, government supporters have demonized the peace groups they attack. Israeli leaders would do better to heed the words of former Shin Bet (Israeli domestic intelligence) head Yuval Diskin, who warned in 2008 that settler attackers may yet “fire at police, at soldiers, at political leaders.” Coddling terrorists will only make them bolder, with unpredictable results. In this week of memorials to Rabin, I recalled a conversation I had in early 1995 with Ehud Sprinzak, who advised Rabin on terrorist groups. He said Rabin had wanted to dismantle a Jewish settlement in downtown Hebron but Sprinzak had dissuaded the prime minister, fearing that radical settlers might kill him if he did so. We know how that story ended. As I said goodbye to Ofran, I reflected on the terrible symmetry between Rabin’s murder and the Price Tag actions. Rabin’s assassin killed the Israeli leader most capable of negotiating a secure peace with the Palestinians. Price Tag tactics, and the government’s capitulation, are killing any future chance of a negotiated peace. — Trudy Rubin is a columnist and editorial board member for the Philadelphia Inquirer.

“Success with Honor” is the motto of Penn State’s athletic program. They got it half right. The alleged sexual abuse of young boys by former defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky is disgusting, outrageous and immoral. That so many at the school’s highest level allegedly engaged either in covering up serial abuses, or turned a blind eye to them in order to maintain the “integrity” of the football program and its legendary coach, Joe Paterno, adds insult to unfathomable injury. Baseball may still be called the national pastime, but football has become the national religion. College football is played on Saturday, the Jewish Sabbath, while professional football is mostly played on Sunday, the Christian Sabbath. Fans of both often express themselves in ways that are more vocal than the wildest Pentecostal preacher. While denouncing what is alleged to have happened at Penn State as repugnant, we would do well to examine the reasons behind such things. Yes, it begins with human nature, but society — buttressed by religion — once did a better job of keeping human nature in check.

Cal Thomas tmseditors@tribune.com

Since the free-loving ’60s, we seem to have taken a wrecking ball to social mores. Today, anyone appealing to such a standard is denounced and stamped with the label of the day, usually ending in the suffix, “-phobe.” The medical and psychological professions have aided and abetted the cultural rot. Doctors once took an oath to “never do harm,” accompanied by a pledge never to assist in an abortion. Now the official position of the American Medical Association’s “code of ethics” is this: “The principles of medical ethics of the AMA do not prohibit a physician from performing an abortion in accordance with good medical practice and under circumstances that do not violate law.” Doctors once led; now they follow cultural trends. On its website, the Ameri-

can Psychological Association brags, “Since 1975, the American Psychological Association has called on psychologists to take the lead in removing the stigma of mental illness that has long been associated with lesbian, gay, and bisexual orientations.” It once considered such behavior otherwise and while even most conservatives no longer regard homosexuality as a mental illness, many still regard it as sinful. That theological diagnosis, too, has been discarded in our increasingly secular and anomalous society where everything is to be tolerated except those people who assert that, according to a standard higher than opinion polls, some things remain intolerable. What changed? Pressure groups aided by secular education and the entertainment industry. Last week, an episode of “Glee” featured two couples — one straight, one gay — “losing their virginity.” The show’s co-creator, Ryan Murphy, told Bravo’s “Sex in the Box”: “Hopefully I have made it possible for somebody on broadcast television to do a rear-entry scene in three years. Maybe that will be

my legacy.” Some legacy. What we tolerate and promote we get more of and what we discourage and reject we get less of. C.S. Lewis said it best in “The Abolition of Man”: “In a sort of ghastly simplicity we remove the organ and demand the function. We make men without chests and expect of them virtue and enterprise. We laugh at honor and are shocked to find traitors in our midst. We castrate and bid the geldings be fruitful.” The message at Penn State was that we live in a culture that forbids almost nothing. Jerry Sandusky apparently believed that and crossed one of the few remaining lines of morality left in our culture. But even that line might soon be erased if the pressure groups and their campaign contributions grow large enough. In the last verse of the Old Testament’s book of Judges, there is this: “In those days Israel had no king; everyone did what was right in his own eyes.” That could have been the motto at Penn State. Increasingly, it appears to describe contemporary America as well. — Cal Thomas is a columnist for Tribune Media Services.

Data to show value of state’s libraries HUTCHINSON (AP) — Libraries across the state will be tracking their patrons today in an effort to show how valuable libraries are to Kansans. The project is conducted by the Kansas Library Association, the Kansas Association of School Libraries and the State Library of Kansas. Patrons will be asked what library services they use and what makes the library important to them. Hutchinson Library Director Gregg Wamsley says the data compiled will help the State Library lobby lawmakers to assure funding for libraries. The Hutchinson News reports that data collected in last year’s snapshot found that in one day, Kansas libraries welcomed 39,037 people and loaned 75,827 items. They also answered 4,411 reference questions, connected 10,859 users to the Internet and supported 1,945 Kansans in their job searches.

Pterodactyl No frills rock ‘n’ roll is the order of this evening as Brooklyn-via-Ohio band Pterodactyl makes a stop at The Replay Lounge, 946 Mass., tonight. The band specializes in lo-fi garage rock that owes equally to bands like The Velvet Underground and speed metal bands not far removed from Motorhead. The band hits hard and fast with little regard for trivial matters like harmony or a solid production. There’s something endearing to Pterodactyl’s deconstructive ways, and they will play quite well with the Replay’s acoustics and the Tuesday night crowd. See for yourself at 10 p.m. The 21-and-older show is $3.

Hoops heavyweights to go toe-to-toe tonight By Gary Bedore gbedore@ljworld.com

NEW YORK — The two winningest programs in college basketball history tangle tonight in the biggest — some say the best — city in the country. “That’s enough right there to start a party,” exclaimed Kansas University junior combo guard Elijah Johnson, eager to contribute to the hype surrounding an 8:30 p.m. Champions Classic contest between No. 1 Kentucky (2,053 all-time victories) and No. 2 KU (2,039).

NBA players reject owners’ proposal NEW YORK (AP) — NBA players delivered a resounding but risky response to one more ultimatum from NBA Commissioner David Stern: See you in court. The players’ association rejected the league’s latest proposal for a new labor deal Monday and began disbanding, paving the way for a lawsuit that throws the season in jeopardy. Negotiating went nowhere, so now the union is going away. And Stern said “nuclear winter� is coming. “We’re prepared to file this antitrust action against the NBA,� union executive director Billy Hunter said.

“That’s the best situation where players can get their due process.� And that’s a tragedy as far as Stern is concerned. “It looks like the 2011-12 season is really in jeopardy,� Stern said in an interview aired on ESPN. “It’s just a big charade. To do it now, the union is ratcheting up I guess to see if they can scare the NBA owners or something. That’s not happening.� Hunter said players were not prepared to agree to Stern’s ultimatum to accept the current proposal or face a worse one, saying they thought it was “extremely unfair.� And they’re aware what this battle might cost them.

“We understand the consequences of potentially missing the season; we understand the consequences that players could potentially face if things don’t go our way, but it’s a risk worth taking,� union vice president Maurice Evans said. “It’s the right move to do.� But it’s risky. Hunter said all players will be represented in a class-action suit against the NBA by attorneys Jeffrey Kessler and David Boies — who were on opposite sides of the NFL labor dispute, Kessler working for the players, Boies for the league. “Mr. Kessler got his way, and we’re about to go into the nu-

clear winter of the NBA,� Stern told ESPN. “If I were a player ... I would be wondering what it is that Billy Hunter just did.� The league already has filed a pre-emptive lawsuit seeking to prove the lockout is legal and contends that without a union that collectively bargained them, the players’ guaranteed contracts could legally be voided. During oral arguments on Nov. 2, the NBA asked U.S. District Judge Paul Gardephe to decide the legality of its lockout, but he was reluctant to wade into the league’s labor mess. Gardephe has yet to issue a ruling.

COLLEGE FOOTBALL

Paterno stripped off trophy PARK RIDGE, ILL. — The Big Ten has taken Joe Paterno’s name off the Big Ten’s football championship trophy. League commissioner Jim Delany said Monday that it is “inappropriate� to keep Paterno’s name on the trophy that will be awarded Dec. 3 after the first Big Ten title game. Penn State fired Paterno, its longtime head coach, last week and investigations are under way into allegations of child sex-abuse involving a former assistant for the Nittany Lions. The trophy will now be called the Stagg Championship Trophy.

Texan Peters signs with KU By Gary Bedore

Tom Keegan tkeegan@ljworld.com

T-Rob MVP for KU NEW YORK — In his nine seasons at Kansas University, Bill Self has coached more-polished basketball players than junior post man Thomas Robinson. But has he ever had a player as difficult to replace, as valuable to his team? Not since Wayne Simien. Sherron Collins as a junior and senior? Close. Collins broke down defenses with the same relentless spirit the late Joe Frazier took on taller, faster opponents. He opened up scoring opportunities for everybody and gave his team an edge off of which teammates fed. But when Collins sat, Kansas often became a better defensive team. Brandon Rush? When Rush hit the bench, KU missed him defensively, on the boards, as a scorer, and in transition in both directions. The man never grew tired. But every team on which Rush played had more talent on the wings than this season’s post depth. Darrell Arthur? He always had Sasha Kaun and Darnell Jackson to share the load up front and had Julian Wright his first season, Cole Aldrich his second. Robinson ranks right there with Simien and Collins as the sort of difference-maker who completely changes the team when he’s on the floor. Even against schools with bigger, thicker, more skilled frontcourts, KU can take comfort in knowing it has the nation’s best rebounder battling for possessions, except when foul trouble forces Robinson to take a seat. The dropoff in frontcourt production when that happens projects as enormous. Robinson has no peer on the team in terms of rebounding, defending the goal and scoring on the blocks. Avoiding foul trouble always presents a challenge for an athlete who plays with such passion. A coach can do only so much to minimize a player’s fouls. One way Self likely will do so is to shelve a staple of recent seasons, big men moving to the perimeter to trap the ballhandler. Blessed with quick-afoot big men, Kansas has been one of the few schools able to execute it consistently in recent years. But it can lead to fouls, and KU can’t risk that with Robinson. Plus, Jeff Withey’s not a player that tactic suits. Self can give Robinson a quick seat on both sides of media timeouts to reduce fatigue fouls, but the rest is up to Robinson to keep his head, avoid technical fouls and learn how to play defense while staying out of foul trouble. To hear Self explain it, the art has a counter-intuitive element to it in that the earlier and more aggressively a post player defends on a possession, the less chance he has of picking up a foul. “Thomas is a big key,” Self said before explaining where Robinson fell short defensively in Friday night’s 10054, season-opening victory against Towson. “Thomas’ man is a pressure release. (The guard) can throw it to him whenever he wants to. He’s going through some things that when he gets two fouls, his idea of playing defense and not fouling is to not guard, when it’s even more important that you play your man before he catches when you get two fouls so he doesn’t put you in jeopardy.” It’s nothing an eager, athletic talent such as Robinson can’t learn. “We just have to spend some time and work on that,” Self said. “He wants to do it. He’ll try, but certainly, we’ve got to do a better job with that.”

Zach Peters, a 6-foot-9, 235-pound senior power forward from Prestonwood Christian Academy in Plano, Texas, orally committed to play basketball at Kansas University way, way back on April 21, 2010. On Monday night, in front of family, friends, teammates and coaches, he officially became a Jayhawk, signing a letter of intent at a ceremony in the comforts of his own home. “Back then, it didn’t feel all that real,” said Peters, who averaged 15.3 points and 9.0 rebounds a game his junior season. “I knew I was going there and thought it’d be awesome, but now it’s really starting to settle in. I am actually a Jayhawk, not a future Jayhawk. I’m really excited. I know it’s the right choice.” A good student, Peters actually considered playing for the Jayhawks this season. Let him explain.

“In April, they (KU coaches) called me up and knew they were losing the (Morris) twins and were lacking a big-man presence. They said, ‘We are looking at your grades. You only need to take two summer classes and could come to KU this next season,’’’ Peters related. “I said, ‘Wow, I have a big decision to make.’ They wanted me to come play. That meant a lot to me. It showed me they have confidence in who I am as a player.” Peters, who is Rivals.com’s No. 144-rated player nationally, ultimately decided to return to Prestonwood Christian. “All my friends were graduating from the year before. I was already looking forward to my senior year and doing what all of them got to do,” Peters said. “I didn’t feel I was ready to go at that point.” He decided not only to return, but to also play football, which he gave up after his freshman season. Peters, a

wide receiver, has 13 touchdown catches and 968 receiving yards for the playoffbound Lions. “I’m 50 yards away from 1,000 yards. If Parker (Ash) our quarterback throws me the ball, hopefully I’ll pass 1,000,” he said with a laugh. “We have a good chance of going to state (title game) with the guys we’ve got. I think we’ll make it,” Peters said. As far as risking injury in football ... “I feel great. I feel refreshed,” he said. “I’ve had a couple nicks, bruises on my legs, nothing serious. It’s nothing basketball hasn’t caused for me in the past.” He’s thankful KU’s hoops coaches approved of him playing football. “They joke around with me that they don’t want me to play,” Peters said. “They want whatever I do that makes me better as an athlete.” Peters chose KU after making unofficial visits to North Carolina, Texas, Memphis,

in the league. They’ve got some guys. They will guard and play hard. We are going to have to really bring it. I’m looking forward to putting us in that position to see what we do,” Self added. First item on the scouting report: How does KU slow down power forward Jones? “Just put Thomas on him. Thomas coulda went pro, too. It’s like that,” KU junior guard Tyshawn Taylor said of KU All-America candidate Thomas Robinson, who wasn’t about to make this match-up all about himself. Dead silence was Robinson’s answer to a question of what he thought about Jones. “They have a tough team with young, talented guys,” Robinson said. “At the same time, they are in our way. We’ll see ’em in the Garden.” Veterans Taylor and Johnson likely will be asked to shadow point guard Teague, who is following in the footsteps of John Wall and Brandon Knight. “You know, he plays a big role for his team. He is one of the only pure point guards,” Taylor said. “He’s a good player, but he’s a freshman still. He’s going to make mistakes. It’s like his second or third game in college.

KENTUCKY COACH JOHN CALIPARI DIRECTS HIS TEAM during the second half of its exhibition opener Friday against Marist in Lexington, Ky. UK will face Kansas tonight in New York. I think me and Elijah have to put pressure on him. We are both 6-4. He’s about 6-0, so we’ve got to use our length and just play.” The Jayhawks didn’t prepare for Kentucky — but they did discuss the Kentucky challenge — even prior to the Towson game.

KU-UK NOTEBOOK OKansas University has won the last three meetings between the teams dating to 2005. KU beat Kentucky, 88-76, in a second-round 2007 NCAA Tournament game in Chicago. OKU’s single-game record of 150 points came against Kentucky in a 150-95 win over Rick Pitino’s Wildcats on Dec. 9, 1989, in Lawrence. OTyshawn Taylor on UK coach John Calipari, who worked as a former Larry Brown assistant at KU: “I think he’s definitely one of the best coaches of this era, my era. He’s got a lot of guys in the pros. For the guys that want to be in the one-and-done position, he’s the guy for that. If you want to come to college and leave right after that, he’s the guy.” More from Taylor on coach Cal: “Probably that national championship game when he coached Memphis against coach (Bill) Self, that’s one of the things I definitely remember about coach Cal. He lost to coach Self (in ‘08 title game).” OTaylor on the Garden: “I think it’s an amazing place to play, real close to home. I’ll have a lot of family in there, which is a good thing. Last year, I remember it being cold (on early-December trip in which KU beat Memphis in the Jimmy V. Classic). I remember winning the game. I remember us watching a Knicks game the night before and just having a good time.” OElijah Johnson on the Garden: “I always thought the Garden was the best gym in the world and the fieldhouse

second. The closer I got to college, I started to go with the fieldhouse over the Garden. I love the Garden, but the fieldhouse is more exciting for us.” ONext season, Kansas will play Michigan State on Nov. 13, 2012, at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta, while Duke will play Kentucky in that Champions Classic doubleheader. On Nov. 12, 2013, the venue will be the United Center in Chicago with Kansas playing Duke and Kentucky facing Michigan State. OSelf on Calipari’s strong recruiting: “He’s a good recruiter. They (UK coaches) are hungry. They’ve got a great product to push. They’ve done real well. He’s been able to do very well with the guys that are bonifide NBA talent guys, the one-anddone or two-and-done guys. They’ve got a guy who came back this year (Jones) that would have been a lottery pick last year. The thing about Cal that is a little bit misleading ... guys can get reputations as being real good recruiters. Rarely do really good recruiters get the reputation of being a really good coach. I think he’s a really really good coach. He gets his teams to play hard and guard and play unselfish. It’s the hardest thing to do with really young, talented guys. “We’ve gone against them several times (in recruiting). They win their fair share. We’ve won a few. As long as he is there and really it doesn’t make a difference who is there or here, we will go against each other recruiting-wise no question, and they’ve done a great job.”

“(We talked about them) in general terms,” Self said. “Hey, they’ve got men, and they’ve got a bunch of them. NBA people who have been to our practices and been to theirs ... they are saying, ‘They’ve got men.’ They’re competitive. We are also competitive when we get it

Kentucky, a lot of schools. His first visit to KU was the Colorado game on Jan. 27, 2007. “Julian Wright made a faux paux on a breakaway and lost the ball in midair,” Peters’ dad, Tim, recalled. “He landed on his back. Coach (Bill) Self wouldn’t let anybody go out and get him. I think we heard every word imaginable. I said right then, Zach was in eighth grade, ‘Well I guess he’s not going to Kansas.’ Boy, coach Self just let Julian Wright have it. ... Zach (ultimately) made the decision, told himself, ‘If I am going to be what I need to be in the league, I need to be coached by coach Self and coach (Danny) Manning.’ Coach Self and Manning have been as honest as the day is long. If you are afraid of hard work and afraid of coach putting a boot up your butt, you won’t go to Kansas. I think it scares some kids off. But at the end of the day, Zach made the right decision,” Tim Peters added.

turned up. We’ve not gotten it turned up consistently.” Kentucky coach John Calipari, who took the Wildcats to the Final Four in his second season in Lexington — his sophomores say they are intent on winning it all in ’12 — is equally complimentary of KU. “I just don’t know if we’re ready to play a team like Kansas,” Calipari said on his website, coachcal.com. “We’re this highly ranked team who could get beat by 100 teams in the country right now.” Noted shooting guard/ Queens native Lamb, who, like KU’s Taylor (Hoboken, N.J.), will be playing before a batch of relatives and friends tonight: “We know Kansas is a great team. We’re a great team, so we’ve got to go out there and compete with them.” “Kansas is a great school, great team,” freshman forward Davis said. “I just can’t wait to go out there and play them. Coach Cal said they’re real physical, and if we start the game the way we started (Friday vs. Marist), we’re not going to win.” There’s a chance these teams could meet in a rematch in the NCAA Tournament. And, who knows, maybe in regular-season games down the line. “I think it’d be a great home-and-home every year, wouldn’t it?” Self said. KU trails the series 19-6, all time.

KU, A&M football coming off OT losses By Matt Tait mtait@ljworld.com

Each week, there are different elements that go into preparing a game plan for a college football game. This week, healing figures to be near to the top of the list for both Kansas University and Texas A&M. When the Jayhawks and Aggies square off at 11 a.m. Saturday in College Station, Texas, it figures to be business as usual. What KU coach Turner Gill and A&M coach Mike Sherman do during the week leading up to the game, however, might be a departure from the norm. Last week, both teams lost overtime games, with Kansas falling, 31-30, to Baylor, and A&M falling, 53-50 in four OTs, at Kansas State. Bouncing back after losses has been challenging for both programs this season, but doing so after coming so close the week before figures to make the mental hurdle higher. “Since the (K-State) game ended to this moment, I’ve been thinking about that part of it,” said Sherman on Monday morning’s Big 12 coaches teleconference. “There’s so much of the game that’s mental. We had different opportunities during the course of that game to win it, and we didn’t. Certainly in overtime, it’s an even ballgame, and you have as good a chance to win it as they do. We didn’t get that done. That carries over into this week.” The Aggies (5-5 overall, 3-4 Big 12) enter this weekend needing one victory in their final two games to become bowleligible. With a home game against Texas on the docket in A&M’s regular-season finale, the Aggies figure to put plenty of emphasis on this week’s golden opportunity against Kansas (2-8, 0-7), and Sherman said getting his players’ minds right before kickoff would be as important as game-planning for the Jayhawks. “I think, as a coach, you have to walk a fine line,” Sherman said. “(Players) have to be held accountable, we have to be held accountable for the predicament that we’re in but, at the same time, (we have to) build up their confidence, as well. We’ve been close too many times to not have won those games. It’s inexcusable.” Four of A&M’s five losses have come by a combined 14 points, making the fragile mental state of the Aggies’ players and coaches something that has lingered. “I’ve never, as an assistant or head coach, been through a situation like this,” Sherman said. “This is certainly a first in my career and something I don’t wish on anybody. I think every coach will go back after his season and say, ‘Could’ve, would’ve, should’ve done this.’ But not with the frequency that I’m gonna have to do at the end of this season.” For Gill, rebuilding confidence after such a close defeat isn’t as daunting. In fact, in many ways just being close against Baylor was a confidence boost for the Jayhawks, who have dropped five games by 30 or more points. Still, Gill said he recognized the importance of refocusing after the emotional loss on Senior Day. “That’s gonna be our challenge,” Gill said. “We know these 18- to 22-year-old young men, in most cases, are pretty resilient. More of us adults may hold on to it a little bit longer than the young men.” Gill said he would continue to focus on the future. “You talk about the good things, improvement,” he said. “In the Iowa State game, we played four quarters and just came up short. Last week, we played four quarters and got a chance to play in overtime and came up close. So now, we’re getting closer. Earlier in the year we were not close. And now we’re in a situation where we have a chance to win. So if we continue to close that gap, which we have, hopefully this week is when we’ll be able to finish a football game and get a W.”

Chiefs QB Cassel could be out for year By Dave Skretta Associated Press Sports Writer

KANSAS CITY, MO. — Chiefs quarterback Matt Cassel could be lost for the season because of what his coach calls a significant injury to his throwing hand. Coach Todd Haley refused to say Monday whether the team had discussed putting Cassel on injured reserve, but he did say “it’s a possibility” when asked whether Cassel would be done for the year. “He will probably have to have surgery at some time,” Haley said. “The length of it, we’re not sure, but there’s some optimism. Each person it varies, but it’s a difficult injury.” The Chiefs have already lost All-Pro running back Jamaal Charles, Pro Bowl safe-

ty Eric Berry, tight end Tony Moeaki and linebacker Brandon Siler to season-ending injuries. Cassel hurt his right hand near the end of the Chiefs’ 1710 loss to Denver on Sunday. The injury appeared to occur when Cassel was sacked by Elvis Dumervil and Von Miller, though Haley wasn’t sure if it was the hit or the way Cassel landed on the turf that caused it. “This has been a fluid situation,” Haley said. Tyler Palko played the final offensive series against Denver, leading the Chiefs to a field goal, even though Cassel said after the game that he wanted to play. “I was a little banged up, so that’s what kept me out,” Cassel said, adding that he thought he’d be OK to play at New England next Monday

KANSAS CITY QUARTERBACK MATT CASSEL (7) IS PURSUED by Denver defensive end Ryan McBean during the first half of Sunday’s game in Kansas City, Mo. night. “I wanted to go, but I was told not to.” The injury turned out to be more severe than anyone expected.

Packers remain undefeated GREEN BAY, WIS. (AP) — Another night, another fourtouchdown performance for Aaron Rodgers — just about what the Green Bay Packers have come to expect from their superstar quarterback. The real surprise came on the other side of the ball: A defense that finally showed it can take charge of a game. The Packers (9-0) remain the NFL’s lone undefeated team. And if they now can count on a defense to complement their high-octane offense, they just might be unstoppable. Rodgers threw for four scores against a fierce Vikings pass rush, Randall Cobb returned a punt 80 yards for a touchdown, and the Packers defense contained Adrian Peterson and the Minnesota Vikings in a 45-7 victory on Monday night. Green Bay’s defense came into the game giving up nearly 300 yards passing per

game, second-most in the NFL. Their last time out, the Packers nearly blew a big lead in the fourth quarter at San Diego, holding on for a 45-38 victory. But the Packers finally played to their potential against the division rival Vikings (2-7), holding rookie quarterback Christian Ponder to 190 yards passing with an interception and limiting Peterson to 51 yards and a touchdown. The Vikings’ defense did its best to rough up Rodgers, sacking him three times and hitting him hard virtually every time he took off running. Defensive end Jared Allen harassed Rodgers at every turn. The pressure didn’t force any uncharacteristic mistakes from Rodgers, who was 23 of 30 for 250 yards without an interception. Rodgers threw a pair of touchdown passes to Jordy Nelson and

also found Greg Jennings and John Kuhn for scores. Packers coach Mike McCarthy put backup quarterback Matt Flynn in the game with 10:30 left in the fourth quarter — and the Vikings couldn’t keep him out of the end zone, either, as he scrambled 3 yards for a touchdown with 4:27 left. But it was Cobb, a secondround rookie out of Kentucky, who got it all started for the Packers. After the Packers’ defense forced the Vikings to go three-and-out on their first possession, Cobb fielded a punt from Chris Kluwe and squeezed through a seam in the middle of the field. Cobb accelerated down the left sideline and danced the final few steps into the end zone, tossing the ball in the air as if he was shooting a basketball before doing a “Lambeau leap” into the stands.

Palko was informed by quarterbacks coach Jim Zorn on Monday that he’ll likely get his first NFL start against the Patriots. Fifth-round draft choice

Ricky Stanzi, who has been inactive all season, will become the backup, though Kansas City could sign a veteran free agent for some depth. “I’m really close with Matt, and we’ve been through a lot these last two years,” Palko said in the Chiefs’ mostly empty locker room Monday afternoon. “You hate to see anybody go down like this, but it’s football, and you just have to be ready.” The Chiefs (4-5) are in a three-way tie with San Diego and Denver, all chasing the AFC West-leading Oakland Raiders (5-4). The Chiefs, however, have dropped two frustrating games in a row. It hasn’t helped that the Chiefs are missing several of their best players. Siler went down in training camp with a torn Achilles tendon, not long after

signing with Kansas City. Moeaki tore his left ACL in the Chiefs’ preseason finale, Berry sustained the same injury in the first quarter Week 1 against Buffalo, and Charles tore his left ACL early in Week 2 at Detroit. “It’s crazy, man, just the game, the NFL, how the season is going,” fullback Le’Ron McClain said. “Whoever is next to step in has to step in and play, because the season’s going to continue.” It’s not going to get any easier, either. The Chiefs’ game at New England on Monday night starts perhaps the most grueling stretch any team will face this season. They return home to play Pittsburgh, and then visit Chicago and the New York Jets, before playing host to the Super Bowl champion Green Bay Packers on Dec. 18.

the others. We suspect your sister’s in-laws are simply dividing the estate to ensure that it goes to future descendants, but your sister feels that her contributions and devotion are not valued. This is undoubtedly not true, and she might want to express those hurt feelings to them before the relationship is permanently damaged. We do hope they leave her some piece of jewelry or other personal memento, however, to show how much they love and appreciate her. Dear Annie: My wife and I are a mature couple in our mid-50s. We were very passionate when we married 11 years ago, but time has taken the wind out of “Betty’s” sails. I don’t begrudge her the change of life. What bothers me is how overly sensitive she is to discussing the issue. I’m not looking for an excuse to have a fling, and see-

Spielberg and Williams know the score Film buffs will enjoy “AFI’s Master Class — The Art of Collaboration” (7 p.m., TCM). Director Steven Spielberg and composer John Williams sit down in a small studio theater and discuss nearly 40 years of working together on movies and their scores. You don’t have to be a huge fan of Spielberg’s body of work to find the conversation stimulating. Spielberg generously praises many other filmmakers and musicians for inspiring him. He cites the dissonant, modern, almost jazzy Alex North score featured in a fight-tothe-death scene in Stanley Kubrick’s “Spartacus.” We’re shown the romance scene from Alfred Hitchcock’s creepy thriller “Vertigo,” and Spielberg explains how odd and dull it would seem without composer Bernard Herrmann’s score to guide, even manipulate, our emotions. Watching “Collaboration,” I wasn’t only struck by Spielberg and Williams’ four-decade partnership. I was at a loss to think of any other modern director so closely associated with original soundtrack music. As Williams explains, he still composes on paper and on his piano, then executes his compositions with a full orchestra. Many directors have replaced that approach with “greatest hits” soundtracks. At their best, say, Martin Scorsese’s use of pop music in “Goodfellas,” they work very well. In other cases, they seem more driven by marketing than art. At their worst, music is simply used to move along a predictable montage. Spielberg is old enough to have formed his sensibilities before the advent of MTV and music videos. He recalls first being smitten by Williams’ score for another director’s movie. “I had to go out and buy the LP,” he gushed, before reflecting, “You remember those? Right?”

Tonight’s other highlights

Thanksgiving goes haywire on “New Girl” (8 p.m., Fox).

A new rival threatens business on “Sons of Anarchy” (9 p.m., FX). Cult choice Tom Cruise stars as an elfin creature in the 1985 fantasy “Legend” (8 p.m., HBO Family), directed by Ridley Scott. Series notes An investigation leads to Kabul on “NCIS” (7 p.m., CBS) ... “The Biggest Loser” (7 p.m., NBC) ... Ensnared in gossip on “Last Man Standing” (7 p.m., ABC) ...

ing a counselor is out of the question. I love Betty and want our lives together to be happy. Her doctor prescribed hormone replacement therapy, but she’s a bit iffy about taking it. How can I resolve my strong desire for her when she’s told me straight-out that she feels guilty she isn’t able to share those special moments with me anymore? — Chagrined in Chicago Dear Chagrined: Betty needs to understand that although her desire is diminished and there may be some physical difficulties with intimacy, she must make the effort for the health of her

 Let your imagination flourish. Use care with your finances and domestic matters. Tonight: Know when to call it a night. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)  You sense a change coming, but perhaps not right away. You have a way of affecting others that you might not be aware of. Tonight: Say what you think. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)  Lie back and gain a better insight into what is really going on. The less said the better. You gather new information. Tonight: Lie back. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)  Meetings and friends gather around you. You feel as if you are on top of the world, as success comes toward you after an awkward moment or two. Tonight: Where the gang is. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)  You are in the limelight more than you might be comfortable with. You could feel out of sorts. Read between the lines with others. What isn’t said might be more important than what is said. Tonight: Could go way late.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22Dec. 21)  Keep reaching out for others. You tend to make the impossible happen. A partner prefers to deal with you directly. Listen to this person carefully. This dialogue has many gems of possibilities. Tonight: Go along with another’s ideas. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)  Let someone else take the lead. This person needs to know whether he or she is capable of handling a situation. You must let go in order to allow this person to find out. Tonight: Say “yes” to an invitation. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)  Listen to what others say more often. Pace yourself and get the job done. You feel more relaxed with a certain associate. Tonight: Put your feet up. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)  Your creativity flows, and you come up with one solution after another. Allow your ingenuity to speak once and for all.

If she refuses to discuss this with you, a counselor or her doctor, cut this letter out, put it on her pillow tonight and tell her we think she should make every effort to work on this.

JACQUELINE BIGAR’S STARS For Tuesday, Nov. 15: You express the intuitive and wise side of your personality. Others cannot help but be drawn to you. If you are single, you will need someone quite unique to keep your interest. If you are attached, any fighting you experience is about separation. Refuse to play into arguments. Cancer understands your depth. 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)  Your high energy, spontaneity and creativity braid together to create a close to impossible combination to beat. Tonight: Fun. Taurus (April 20-May 20)  Anchor in, knowing your limits and where you are heading. Realize everything could change quickly. Tonight: Head home. Gemini (May 21-June 20)  Communication comes your way. Express yourself in a clear manner. Tonight: Make it early. Cancer (June 21-July 22)
