Gas chamber is less

stressful, quicker
for some animals
By Olivia Ingle
The three veterinarians who serve
on the Animal Shelter Advisory Com-
mittee that advises the Jefferson City
Animal Shelter (JCAS) have been
asked by clients and other individu-
als about their views on the use of the
gas chamber at the shelter.
The gas chamber has been used
for wildlife and feral cat euthanasia
at JCAS since December 2008. Car-
bon dioxide is used to euthanize the
animals in the homemade chamber,
which is a chest-freezer similar to one
that could be found in one’s home.
At the committee’s Monday meet-
ing, all three veterinarians endorsed
the use of the chamber for wildlife
and feral cat euthanasia. Dr. Jim
Crago, vice chairman of the advisory
committee, stated the method was
“quick, effective and safe.”
“Dr. Boyer, Dr. Popp and myself are
the members of the Shelter Advisory
Board and have all agreed that its (gas
chamber’s) use for wild animals and
some feral cats is an appropriate and
effective method of handling this dif-
ficult situation,” Crago said in a letter
to the News Tribune.
Management at JCAS
The city hired Dr. Corey McCann
on June 9 as interim veterinarian at
JCAS. He fills the shelter veterinarian
position left vacant by Dr. Amanda
Dykstra, who resigned from her posi-
tion June 14 and was released early
from her month’s notice on June 27.
Her resignation was due in part to
her concern regarding the shelter’s use
of a gas chamber to kill wildlife and
feral cats and regarding disagreements

The Coast Guard dispatched a helicopter to res-

were able to right Wichman’s boat. They towed it

The Callaway Hills Animal Shelter
isn’t able to accommodate the num-

in the past.
The no-kill, private shelter, which
is located on state Road TT just off
Highway 54 in Callaway County, can
accommodate more than 110 ani-

29 dogs and nearly 30 cats because
that’s all it can support financially.

30 years and was previously funded

SEATTLE (AP) — In Nirvana’s
hometown, former members of the
defining grunge band reunited to join
Paul McCartney on stage.
Dave Grohl and Krist Novosel-
ic joined the former Beatle before
47,000 fans at Safeco Field during
Friday’s concert. Guitarist Pat Smear,
who played with Nirvana for a tour
and an album, also joined the group
on stage.
There were no Nirvana songs
played though. The group covered
Beatles songs and played “Cut Me
Some Slack,” which it debuted during
a benefit concert for Hurricane Sandy
relief last year.
McCartney told the adoring crowd
that he was in the middle of a “Nir-
vana reunion.”
Later in the day, Novoselic tweet-
ed, “Thank you @PaulMcCartney for
a great show and for having us play
with you all.”
ATLANTA (AP) — Atlanta police
are investigating the burglary of base-
ball great Hank Aaron’s Atlanta home
while he and his wife were away.
A police report obtained by the
Atlanta Journal-Constitution says the
79-year-old Aaron missed a call from
his alarm company Sunday night and
asked a neighbor to check on his
house Monday morning. The neigh-
bor saw a broken window and called
police, and officers arrived to find
two BMWs missing from the garage
and closets that had been ransacked.
Jewelry and car keys were the only
other items taken.
Police have located both vehicles
and said they expect to make an
arrest soon.

From The Associated Press
old holdup in a national effort to create
thousands of acres of shallow-water Mis-
souri River habitat to help an endangered
fish species has been resolved. The U.S.
Army Corps of Engineers announced this
month that it awarded a $3.5 million con-
tract for construction of a shallow-water
project at Jameson Island near the village
of Arrow Rock in mid-Missouri. A debate
over what to do with the dirt excavated
to create the new habitat had stalled
that project and other ones like it in the
state, putting a national effort to provide a
refuge for young pallid sturgeon and other
native species far behind schedule.
HELEN THOMAS: Covering 10 presi-
dents over five decades, Helen Thomas
aged into a legend. She was the only
reporter with her name inscribed on a
chair in the White House briefing room
— her own front row seat to history. Start-
ing as a copy girl in 1943, when women
were considered unfit for serious report-
ing, Thomas rose to bureau chief.
RALLIES: One week after a jury found
George Zimmerman not guilty in the
death of unarmed teen Trayvon Martin,
people gathered in 100-plus cities nation-
wide for rallies to press for federal civil
rights charges against the former neigh-
borhood watch leader. Messages at the
rally reflected those that have dominated
the conversation since the case drew
national attention last year: race relations
and self-defense laws.
POPE PILGRIMS: Thousands of young
Catholics from throughout Latin America
are converging on Rio de Janeiro to see
Pope Francis, taking long bus trips or
expensive plane flights paid for with bake
sales, raffles and fundraisers in public
plazas. Thanks to donations, the 30,000
Argentine pilgrims include hundreds from
the so-called “misery villages” of Buenos
Aires, where Jorge Mario Bergoglio fos-
tered close ties with kids in the slums
before he became pope.
weeks, neighbors have had just about
enough with protesters supporting Egypt’s
ousted president who are camped out-
side a Cairo mosque. Residents say
garbage has piled up on side streets and
in parks, and speeches blare from the
stage late into the night. And many resi-
dents, whatever their politics, are worried
about safety.
SHIP AGROUND: Five employees of
an Italian cruise company are convicted
of manslaughter in the Costa Concordia
shipwreck that killed 32 people, receiving
sentences that lawyers for victims and
survivors criticize as too lenient. The
ship’s captain is being tried separately.

“This basically (reiterates)
the fact that they’re still inter-
ested, and they want to keep it
on the forefront..”
At almost every hearing,
including Jefferson City’s, the
committee heard from advo-
cates for legalizing marijuana
and for lawmakers to override
Gov. Jay Nixon’s veto of a bill
that would reduce income
taxes over a decade.
For instance, Curtman
noted, “Our committee has
heard some testimony with
concern about the size and
scope of the state Department
of (Elementary and Second-
ary) Education, and our gov-
ernment’s role in it.”
But one idea stood out from
the tour as being new.
“We had a really good sug-
gestion from a guy (in St. Louis)
who said, ‘I don’t know if Mis-
souri has one of these measur-
ing devices, to measure the
cost-effectiveness of money
after it’s been appropriated,
but maybe we need a formula
to see if the benefit outweighs
the cost, or vice-versa — to
make sure that people are get-
ting their money’s worth out of
Curtman said: “I think that’s
a very reasonable and appro-
priate suggestion.”
Although he doesn’t know
yet what proposed bills might
come from the committee, he
expects there will be some.
“The reason that we made
ourselves available and acces-
sible to the public was for the
purpose of finding some issues
from them that we could actu-
ally implement, so that our
government cooperates bet-
ter with the people,” Curtman
He also said the tour helped
people talk about general
ideas, rather than having to
comment on specific, already
introduced bills being heard
by legislative committees dur-
ing the General Assembly’s
regular sessions.
Hurst noted several people
suggested government reduce
or eliminate business regula-
“It’s not really (so much)
a cost factor that we’re look-
ing at,” he said, “as it is look-
ing toward the future, so that
those businesses understand
that we’re here to work with
them, not against them.”
But, he added, that doesn’t
mean there will be no regula-
tions in the future.
“We’re not in any way say-
ing we want to take regulation
to a point where it’s a free-for-
all,” Hurst explained. “Most of
the people I talk to agree that
we need some kind of regula-
At the start of Thursday’s
Capitol hearing, Curtman
noted the panel “was put
together so that we would have
some people who could claim
ownership over some issues.”
He added: “Maybe there
are some people who, through
the daily running of their lives
or their business see redun-
dancies in the bureaucracies
they have to come in contact
with on a regular basis — so,
maybe, they can bring that
to our attention and we can
introduce legislation to help
rein those in.”
He told reporters that no
one testified against the com-
mittee’s downsizing goal.
But, Hurst said: “We didn’t
really hear anything about
increasing the size of govern-
ment as much as ‘right-sizing’
versus ‘down-sizing.’
“That was an interesting
aspect and a good way to look
at it — you can cut back so far.
It’s like weight loss — to lose
the fat is good, but to lose the
muscle is not.
“You don’t want to cut so
much that you hurt the enti-

Milwaukee man knew exactly
what he was doing when he
accused his teenage neigh-
bor of burglary and then fired
a bullet into the boy’s chest,
jurors decided Friday. The
verdict essentially guarantees
that 76-year-old John Henry
Spooner will die behind bars.
The same jury decided two
days earlier that Spooner was
guilty of first-degree intention-
al homicide in the death of
13-year-old Darius Simmons
in May 2012. The trial then
shifted into a second phase
in which jurors were asked to
determine whether Spooner
was mentally ill at the moment
he pulled the trigger.
It took the jury less than 30
minutes to agree he was sane
and in control of his actions at
the time of the shooting.
The boy’s mother, Patricia
Larry, declined to speak with
reporters after the trial but
thanked God, the prosecutor
and the community. Her son
had died in her arms.
“Justice was served,” she
Two doctors testified Friday
that Spooner has anger issues
and aggressive impulses, but
that he was neither delusion-
al nor detached from reality
when he killed Darius.
Spooner, who is white, never
denied killing his unarmed,
black next-door neighbor. He
testified that he shot Darius
because he believed the teen
was among the burglars who
had broken into his home two
days earlier and stolen four
shotguns that held deep senti-
mental value.
He also testified that he
wanted to kill Darius’ brother
after the older boy ran into the
street to help his dying brother.
But Spooner didn’t fire because
he feared he might endanger
other people around them.
Dr. Robert Rawski, a court-
appointed forensic psycholo-
gist, said that level of recog-
nition shows how Spooner
was thinking clearly at that
“He opted not to (shoot)
because there was a couple
and a child in the distance.
He did not want to chance it,”
Rawski said, recalling his inter-
view with Spooner last year.
“This is an individual who ...
recognized the environment
around him. His anger was
very specific.”

role of Animal Control direc-
tor at the shelter, giving him
overall authority over JCAS.
Previously, Animal Control
Supervisor Karen Jennings
oversaw the shelter. Although
she now reports to McCann,
the Animal Control officers
report to Jennings. With the
announcement, the Jefferson
City Police Department, which
oversees JCAS and Animal
Control, said the gas chamber
will only be used at the shel-
ter to euthanize wildlife and
feral cats when McCann is not
readily available for euthana-
sia by injection. The use of the
chamber will only occur at the
direction and with the author-
ity of McCann.
Veterinarian’s facts
Crago said in an interview
that the gas chamber should
be referred to as a carbon diox-
ide chamber.
“Gas chamber gives it the
connotation of a human gas
chamber, and that’s not what
it is,” he said.
He said in his letter to the
News Tribune that there are
a few simple facts that don’t
seem to be understood by
many individuals.
First, he said that animal
control is routinely asked to
trap and remove wild animals
from residential and com-
mercial properties because of
concerns of property dam-
age, nuisance and potential
Crago said the Depart-
ment of Conservation advises
the animal control officers to
euthanize the wild animals
rather than release them into
the wild at another location,
because of concerns that the
animals will not adjust to their
new environment or will not
be accepted by other wildlife
in the environment.
“Many of these animals
will die due to this stress
imposed upon them,” Crago
said. “It also moves a local
problem to another loca-
tion where the farmers or
landowners will need to deal
with it again.”
Rex Martensen, supervisor
of the Missouri Department of
Conservation’s wildlife damage
control program, said removal
of wildlife and wildlife eutha-
nasia are the last resort.
He said conservation offi-
cers first try to frighten the ani-
mals to discourage them from
becoming more of a problem
for a property owner, hopefully
scaring them away from the
Stress by euthanasia
Crago said that when ani-
mal control brings wildlife into
his veterinary clinic, the vet-
erinarian must euthanize the
animals by injection.
“Anyone who believes
that injecting these animals
through a cage and watching
them struggle is less stressful
than the use of the gas cham-
ber should witness what I
have had to do during the last
month for the shelter,” Crago
said in the letter.
He said that on one occa-
sion he had to give a ground-
hog three injections before it
was sedated enough to handle.
The process took nearly 20
minutes of struggle. A raccoon
the veterinarian injected bled
profusely before becoming
sedated, he said.
“It is not uncommon that
multiple injections are needed
due to the valiant efforts they
(wildlife) make to avoid get-
ting injected,” Crago said in
the letter.
He said that on that par-
ticular day, two raccoons, two
groundhogs and a cat were
“A total of 10 injections were
used to sedate them,” he said.
“It is not a stress-free method
He said the use of the gas
chamber is less stressful for
the animals and is quick and
effective. It usually takes two to
four minutes to sedate them.
“There is less handling of
the animal and it removes the
safety issue for the staff and
the veterinarian involved,”
Crago said.
He said in an interview that
when euthanizing with the gas
chamber, the cage that trapped
the wildlife is placed inside the
chamber, so animals are sepa-
rated during the process. Occa-
sionally when two animals are
trapped in one cage, they are
both euthanized in that cage.
He said it cannot be avoided in
those instances.
“Ideally, they should be
separated, but I’m not going
to suggest someone open that
cage and try to separate them,”
Crago said. “There’s too much
risk. You’ve got to be looking at
the safety of the people han-
dling these animals, too.”
He said wildlife can harbor
diseases that no one wants to
expose themselves, such as
Feral cats
One of the concerns skeptics
of JCAS’s gas chamber have is
that sometimes domestic cats
are trapped, deemed feral and
euthanized in the chamber.
That very situation hap-
pened to Linda Laucks’ cat
Stella in December.
When asked if there is a way
to tell if an animal is feral,
Crago said, “No.”
“That’s where the microchip
comes in,” he said. “If people
would microchip their ani-
mals, they would be checked
before they are euthanized.
They always are.”
He said the animals could
then be identified as domes-
“Unfortunately, cats can be
very kind and nice at home,
warm and fuzzy,” Crago said.
“Then when you trap them
by accident, or otherwise, or
put them in an enclosed area,
they become very vicious and
you can’t tell the difference
between that vicious and a
feral animal that is vicious just
because it’s a wild cat.”
He said microchipping ani-
mals is the best solution.
“You can then identify what
they (the animals) are and be
able to find the owner and
have them come in and claim
them,” Crago said. “I think that
would be a good alternative for
all animals that are domestic.”
He said it’s important to
remember that Jefferson City
has a leash law that requires
dogs and cats to be on a leash
if they are not on their owners’
Group against gas
A group of nearly 15 resi-
dents met Wednesday eve-
ning to discuss concerns they
have regarding the operation
of JCAS, specifically concerns
regarding the use of the gas
“I know we feel things need
to be improved in many areas
of operation (at JCAS),” said
Ed Storey, one of the residents
who has taken charge of the
group. “Working as a group,
hopefully we can make some
changes for the better.”
The group outlined three
goals they want to accom-
plish regarding euthanasia at
the shelter. They want to get
the gas chamber removed,
identify acceptable means of
euthanasia and meet with the
City Council to discuss their
The group views the cham-
ber as a inhumane euthanasia
alternative to injection. But,
under Missouri law, the gas
chamber is legal.
Crago said he sees the
chamber as a viable alterna-
tive for the unmanageable wild
animals and feral cats.
He said in his letter that,
“In a perfect world, all ani-
mals would be allowed to live
peacefully without human
involvement ... but there are
situations when there has to
be control of the damage and
threats imposed by our animal
“None of us take pleasure
in disposing of these beautiful
creatures, but when it comes
to that unpleasant task, using
the least stressful and effective
methods should be followed.
The use of the CO2 chamber is
by far one of the better alterna-
tives available.
“It would be wonderful if
we never had to deal with it,
but the fact is, we do.”

“We’re really just existing
month to month right now,
though,” Underwood said.
She said there are various
things in need of repair at
the shelter. Fencing needs
to be painted and repaired,
the outdoor pens need addi-
tional pea gravel, and holes
need to be filled in some of
the pens.
Underwood said the shelter
is run by a staff of four and
several volunteers.
“We’re small, but mighty,”
she said.
She said at this point, the
shelter needs to stabilize itself.
To run the shelter, it costs
$6,000 a month in utilities, vet-
erinary bills, staff salaries, food
for the animals and any addi-
tional costs that may arise.
Underwood said those
funds will not allow the shelter
to expand its services to assist
more animals.
She said once the shelter
gets additional funding, staff
would like to tend to the need-
ed repairs and then reassess
how much funding is available

room. But — until this summer
— most of the building showed
signs of its 1954 origin.
The changes are both cos-
metic and functional.
Workers have removed the
school’s asbestos floor tiles
and asbestos wainscoting in
the classrooms. They also have
removed the building’s origi-
nal boiler heat system and are
replacing it with a new high
efficiency heating and air-
conditioning system. The new
system will have occupancy
Although most of the build-
ing’s spacious windows will
remain in place, workers will
be replacing sections of glass
that need it, said Drehle.
The rooms are full of light,
which will be tempered with
Drehle is also hopeful the
former hallways — which used
to be rather dim — will be
better lighted after the renova-
tion is complete. Lighting in
the school’s parking lot also is
being brightened, she added.
Drehle was particularly
excited about a new music
room for students. The music
room — and a new reading
recovery room — is being
carved out of space that was
formerly used by the mainte-
nance workers for storage.
“It’s a fabulous music space
... it will give students a chance
to move, dance and wiggle,”
she said. “And the teacher
will have adequate storage for
The art room is also seeing
improvements with a much
bigger storage area and a new
Like all the other class-
rooms in the building, the new
music room features a bright-
ly colored wall. The school’s
new color scheme consists of
orange, yellow, blue and green.
In the classrooms, teachers
picked the shade they liked
best and architects picked a
contrasting color — typically
“It might not be what you
might pick for your home,” said
Drehle, “but kids love color.”
The rooms also feature
new wooden casements,
cubbies and bookshelves.
However, the original wood-
work that surrounded the
cork bulletin boards and
chalkboards will remain. “We
wanted to keep the original
character of the building,”
Drehle explained.
Some of the most signifi-
cant changes to the building
are happening near the front
office. Although the footprint
of the administrative space
isn’t changing, a set of dou-
ble doors is being added for
security reasons. The archi-
tect has designed a transac-
tion window for visitors to
approach before they enter
the building. A secretary will
sit inside the space to greet
visitors and check their iden-
“If they need to come in the
building, they’ll be buzzed in,”
Drehle explained.
The gymnasium and stage
area are also getting new treat-
ments. The gym is getting a
new floor and the stage is
being made disability-acces-
sible. A rock-climbing wall is
being repositioned to a better
location. “It’s no longer behind
the basketball goals where
someone could get hurt,” Dre-
hle said.
Designers also plan to
repaint the school’s mascot
— the Tiger — on the gymna-
sium wall.
Drehle said asking teach-
ers to pack and move all their
belonging out of the contrac-
tor’s way was a big task.

complained,” she said. “They

Feds say falcons recovered
By the Associated Press
After decades of scrambling on the underside of
California bridges to pluck endangered peregrine
falcon chicks from ill-placed nests, inseminat-
ing female birds and releasing captive-raised
fledglings, wildlife biologists have been so suc-
cessful in bringing back the powerful raptors
that they now threaten Southern California’s
endangered shorebird breeding sites.
As a result, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service
says it will no longer permit peregrine chick
rescues from Bay Area bridges, a move that
they concede will likely lead to fluffy chicks
tumbling into the water below and drowning
next spring.
“It’s a paradox,” said Marie Strassburger,
chief of the federal agency’s division of migrato-
ry birds and habitat in Sacramento. “Yes, chicks
are cute. I won’t deny that for a second.”
But she said the loss of chicks that fledge
from the nest too early is a natural part of life.
Peregrines nest high on cliffs, trees, build-
ings and bridges because they hunt by diving,
at speeds topping 200 mph, at wild birds they
like to eat. When fledging, young peregrines fly
well and land poorly. On cliffs, there are plenty of
easy spots for a crash landing. On buildings, they
scramble back onto window sills or ledges when
their first flights go awry, or they hit the sidewalk
and can be carried back to their nests. But on
bridges, with smooth steel or concrete supports,
chicks find no perch and often just hit the water.
“We see the loss of a chick by natural causes
as an educational moment as this happens in
nature all the time,” said Strassburger. “The
peregrine falcons on the bridges in the Bay Area
just happen to be in a very visible spot so the
public is more aware of it.”
The recovery of peregrines, and now their
potential threat to other species, underscores
the fragile balance of nature that biologists have
struggled with in recent years: Saving bighorn
sheep in Yosemite National Park meant hunting
protected mountain lions; reintroducing gray
wolves in the Rockies brought a backlash when
ranchers complained they were killing live-
stock; and bringing golden eagle populations
back on California’s Channel Islands nearly
devastated the island fox, one of the world’s
smallest canines.
No more chick rescues

SUNDAY, JULY 21, 2013 A5
ATLANTA (AP) — One week after
a jury found George Zimmerman
not guilty in the death of unarmed
teen Trayvon Martin, people gath-
ered nationwide for rallies to press for
federal civil rights charges against the
former neighborhood watch leader
and call for changes to the nation’s
self-defense laws.
The Florida case has become a
flashpoint in separate but converging
national debates over self-defense,
guns, and race relations. Zimmer-
man, who successfully claimed he
was protecting himself when he shot
Martin, identifies himself as Hispanic.
Martin was black.
For some attendees, particular-
ly those who are black, the rallies
seemed as much about those larger
issues as about the verdict.
“It’s personal,” said Cincinnati res-
ident Chris Donegan, whose 11-year-
old son wore a hoodie to the rally, as
Martin did the night he died. “Any-
body who is black with kids, Trayvon
Martin became our son.”
The Rev. Al Sharpton’s National
Action Network organized the “Justice
for Trayvon” rallies and vigils outside
federal buildings in at least 101 cit-
ies: from New York and Los Angeles to
Wichita, Kan., and Atlanta, where peo-
ple stood in the rain at the bases of two
federal buildings, with traffic blocked
on surrounding downtown streets.
Chants rang out across the rallies.
“Justice! Justice! Justice! ... Now! Now!
Now!” “‘We won’t forget.” “No justice!
No peace!” Many also sang hymns,
prayed and held hands.
And plenty of participants carried
signs: “Who’s next?” “I am Trayvon
Martin.” “Enough Is Enough.”
Most rallies began at noon. In New
York, hundreds of people — including
Martin’s mother, Sybrina Fulton, and
music superstars Jay-Z and Beyonce
— gathered in the heat.
Fulton told the crowd she was
determined to fight for societal and
legal changes needed to ensure black
youths are no longer viewed with sus-
picion because of their skin color.
“I promise you I’m going to work
for your children as well,” she told
the crowd.
At a morning appearance at Sharp-
ton’s headquarters in Harlem, she
implored people to understand the
tragedy involved more than Martin
alone. “Today it was my son. Tomor-
row it might be yours,” she said.
In Atlanta, speakers noted the rally
occurred in the shadows of federal
buildings named for two figures who
had vastly differing views on civil rights
and racial equality: Richard B. Russell
was a Georgia governor and U.S. sena-
tor elected in the Jim Crow South; Mar-
tin Luther King Jr. is the face of African-
Americans’ civil rights movement.
“What’s so frightening about a black
man in a hood?” said the Rev. Raphael
Warnock, who now occupies the pulpit
at King’s Ebenezer Baptist Church.
“History would suggest that we
have plenty of data to be worried when
we see other folk moving through our
neighborhoods in hoods. Some of
them have on pinstripe suits — but in
their hearts, they’re wearing a hood.”
In addition to pushing the Justice
Department to investigate civil rights
charges against Zimmerman, Sharp-
ton told supporters In New York that
he wants to see a rollback of “stand
your ground” self-defense laws.
“We are trying to change laws so
that this never, ever happens again,”
Sharpton said.
“Stand your ground” laws are on
the books in more than 20 states, and
they go beyond many older, tradition-
al self-defense statutes. In general,
the newer laws eliminate a person’s
duty to retreat, if possible, in the face
of a serious physical threat.
Zimmerman didn’t invoke “stand
your ground,” relying instead on a
traditional self-defense argument,
but the judge included a provision
of the law in the jurors’ instructions,
allowing them to consider it as a legit-
imate defense.
Neither was race discussed in front
of the jury. But the two topics have
dominated public discourse about
the case, and came up throughout
Saturday’s rallies.
Across US, people rally for ‘Justice for Trayvon’
AURORA, Colo. (AP) — Some
recited the names of the dead.
Some did good deeds for their
neighbors. Some practiced yoga,
walked through nature, or sim-
ply talked. And two got married.
Coloradans embraced
ways to heal Saturday as they
marked the anniversary of the
Aurora movie theater massa-
cre with a city-sponsored “Day
of Remembrance.”
It was one year ago that a gun-
man opened fire into a packed
midnight screening of the Bat-
man film “The Dark Knight Rises.”
The rampage lasted less than two
minutes but left deep wounds that
still ache in Aurora, Colorado’s
third-largest city which spreads
out across the rolling plains on
Denver’s eastern side.
Twelve people died, including
a 6-year-old girl. Seventy were
hurt, some of them paralyzed.
Countless others inside the the-
ater and out bear the invisible
wounds of emotional trauma.
Parents, siblings and survi-
vors of those slain attended a
morning ceremony of prayer,
song and remembrance out-
side Aurora’s city hall.
Several hundred people —
including police, fire personnel
and members of Colorado’s con-
gressional delegation — bowed
their heads as the names of dead
were read. A small bell tolled after
each. The Hinkley High School
choir sang “Amazing Grace.”
“One year ago, the peace of
our community was shattered,”
Aurora Mayor Steve Hogan said.
“We are still seeking justice.”
“It is important for us to
remember that one senseless
act does not, cannot and will
not define us as a community,”
Hogan added. “This is a story
of resilience, not just of Aurora
but of humankind.”
Gov. John Hickenlooper told
the crowd that many people
still struggle with unanswered
questions. “I know I do,” Hick-
enlooper said.
Dr. Camilla Sasson, an emer-
gency room physician at the
University of Colorado, struggled
through tears as she recounted
the efforts of police and medical
personnel to save lives.
“It is absolutely a miracle
that 58 people survived that
night,” she said.
Mourners clutched white
roses and, as the ceremony
ended, laid them beneath
a large wreath bearing the
inscription, “In memory of
those lost and those whose
lives were forever changed.”
After the ceremony, residents
volunteered for projects —
tending a community garden,
sorting food bank donations,
donating blood. Spiritual and
mental health counselors were
available, along with art therapy
projects and poetry readings.
Eugene Han and Kirstin
Davis, both injured in the Auro-
ra shooting, marked the anni-
versary Saturday afternoon by
getting married — a union that
turned July 20 into a celebra-
tion. Friends who also survived
the shooting took part in the
ceremony at Village East Bap-
tist Church in Aurora as senior
pastor Robert McClendon gave
a prayer for the couple and for
those still grieving.
“This time is both happy
and sacred,” McLendon said.
A year after theater shooting,
Colorado seeks healing
ATLANTA (AP) — A day after
workers unearthed an appar-
ent cannonball from a down-
town Atlanta construction site,
an expert on the American
Civil War said there are at least
two possible scenarios for how
it got there.
The battered round ball
was found Thursday near Cen-
tennial Olympic Park. Police
removed it Thursday and said
it would be detonated, but it
was unclear late Friday if that
had happened. Meanwhile,
police were unsure of its his-
One likely theory: It was a
cannonball that was among
an estimated 100,000 shells
fired into Atlanta by the
Union Army while the city
was under siege in the sum-
mer of 1864.
Gordon Jones, the Atlanta
History Center’s senior mili-
tary historian and curator, said
it could have been fired by fed-
eral soldiers from outside the
city in an effort to strike the
Confederate’s Railroad Round-
house, a key military target
in the general area where the
device was found.
The area where the can-
nonball was found, which now
contains the Georgia Dome
and CNN Center, was inside
the Confederate defense line
before Maj. Gen. William T.
Sherman’s Union forces finally
invaded the city and burned
much of it.
“The Railroad Roundhouse
was right there in the area
of Centennial Olympic Park,
so it really could have been
that this thing was fired at the
Round House,” Jones said.
“That would strike me as the
most likely big target.”
Another target, a passenger
railroad depot near the site of
the present-day Underground
Atlanta shopping area, was
also just east of the construc-
tion site where the device
was found, near Marietta and
Baker streets.
“Between the passenger
depot and the Round House,
that was the central part of the
city,” Jones said. “Those are the
juiciest military targets.”
Atlanta cannonball
possibly fired by Union forces
ing 10 presidents over five decades,
Helen Thomas aged into a legend.
She was the only reporter with her
name inscribed on a chair in the
White House briefing room — her
own front row seat to history.
Starting as a copy girl in 1943, when
women were considered unfit for serious
reporting, Thomas rose to bureau chief.
Working at a news service, where
writers expect obscurity, she became
one of journalism’s most recognized
faces. Thomas embraced her role as
a Washington institution, doing cam-
eos in movies, giving lectures, writing
books about her life until the spotlight
landed on inflammatory remarks she
made about Israel.
The uproar pushed her out of the
White House press room at age 89.
Thomas, 92, died surrounded by
family and friends at her Washington
apartment on Saturday, the family
said in a statement. A friend, Muriel
Dobbin, told the Associated Press
that Thomas had been ill for a long
time, and in and out of the hospital
before coming home Thursday.
Thomas made her name as a bulldog
for United Press International in the
great wire-service rivalries of old, and as
a pioneer for women in journalism.
She was persistent to the point of
badgering. One White House press sec-
retary described her questioning as “tor-
ture” — and he was one of her fans.
In her later years, her refusal to
conceal her strong opinions, even
when posing questions to a president,
and her public hostility toward Israel
caused discomfort among colleagues.
In 2010, that tendency ended her sto-
ried career at the White House. She told
a rabbi making a video that Israeli Jews
should “get the hell out of Palestine” and
“go home” to Germany, Poland or the
United States. The video circulated on
the Internet and brought widespread
condemnation of Thomas, forcing her
to quit her job as a Hearst columnist.
Months later, in January 2011, she
started a column for a free weekly
paper in a Washington suburb.
In her long career, Thomas was
indelibly associated with the ritual
ending White House news confer-
ences. She was often the one to deliv-
er the closing line: “Thank you, Mr.
President” — four polite words that
belied a fierce competitive streak.
Her disdain for White House secre-
cy and dodging spanned five decades,
back to President John Kennedy. Her
freedom to voice her peppery opin-
ions as a speaker and a Hearst colum-
nist came late in her career.
After she quit UPI in 2000 — by then
an outsized figure in a shrunken orga-
nization — her influence waned. The
Bush administration marginalized her,
clearly peeved with a journalist who had
challenged President George W. Bush to
his face on the Iraq war and declared
him the worst president in history.
Thomas was accustomed to get-
ting under the skin of presidents, if
not to getting the cold shoulder.
“If you want to be loved,” she said
years earlier, “go into something else.”
Pioneering reporter Helen Thomas aged into legend
PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — An
Oregon woman who spent
more than a decade in hiding
after a fatal crash built a life
with her two children while
living illegally in Canada.
Jean Keating was living in
the rural Manitoba town of
Minnedosa, population 2,500,
about 300 miles north of Grand
Forks, N.D., The Oregonian
After the fatal 1997 crash, in
which she faced manslaughter
and drunken-driving charges,
Keating stopped contacting
her attorney. Police believe she
crossed the Canadian border
with her children, ages 1 and
3, in 1998.
For more than a decade,
she appeared to have built a
new life in a new country, but
trouble followed her. She was
arrested several times in Can-
ada, including on a charge for
drunken driving.
Despite encounters with
law enforcement, she managed
to keep her past a secret. In
early 2013, that secret began to
unravel, apparently by Keating’s
own doing. A Royal Canadian
Mounted Police constable heard
rumors about a woman named
“Jean McPherson” in town who
bragged about getting away
with manslaughter in the U.S.
He emailed a border-
enforcement task force, which
found that there was no “Jean
McPherson” living as a legal
immigrant in Canada. But
when they compared the fin-
gerprints for “Jean McPher-
son” with those on record for
Keating in Oregon, authorities
found a match.
Officials don’t know how
she entered Canada, said Lisa
White, a spokeswoman for
Canada Border Services Agen-
cy, but in the late 1990s, it was
not usually necessary for U.S.
citizens to show a passport
when crossing into Canada.
Immigration authorities
arrested Keating in Canada on
April 4 and issued a depor-
tation order two weeks later.
She was detained in Winnipeg
because of flight risk until June
12, when she was deported to
North Dakota. Keating has
been barred from ever enter-
ing Canada again, White said.
Members of Keating’s fam-
ily still in Oregon could not
be located by the Associated
Press on Saturday. Keating’s
oldest child would be older
than 18, but it’s unclear who
was assigned custody of the
younger child.
Keating was returned to
Oregon this week, where she
is accused of first-degree man-
slaughter in connection with
the 1997 death of 65-year-old
Jewel Anderson.

DRESSER, Wis. (AP) — A 2-
year-old Wisconsin boy who
was found dead in the trunk of
a car had the key to the vehicle
with him, the family’s pastor
said Saturday.
Isaiah Theis had that key
and several other sets of keys
with him when a deputy found
his body Wednesday night, the
Rev. Rick Van Gundy told the
Associated Press. Van Gundy
said he got the information
from the Theis family but
declined to be more specific,
because of the sensitivity of
the situation.
“This is breaking the heart
of somebody who has a broken
heart,” said Van Gundy, pas-
tor of St. Peter’s Community
Church in Dresser. “It’s that
much of a devastation to them
that you can’t even put a word
to it.”
The deputy found the boy
in the trunk of a customer’s
car on his parents’ property
near Centuria, where the boy’s
father runs an auto repair
business. Preliminary autopsy
results released Friday said
Isaiah likely died of hyperther-
mia — a condition in which
the body temperature spikes
— due to Wednesday’s blister-
ing heat.
Polk County investigators
have not yet said how Isaiah,
who disappeared Tuesday
night, got in the trunk. Sheriff
Peter Johnson did not immedi-
ately return a phone call from
the AP on Saturday.

Baghdad car bombs,

mercial streets Saturday night in Shiite areas of
Baghdad, part of a relentless wave of violence

The car bombs detonated after the iftar meal
that breaks the daily fast of the holy month of
Ramadan. Many people head out to shop or
relax in coffee shops in the cooler evenings after
fasting ends.
Bombings and other attacks have now killed
more than 250 people since the start of Rama-
dan on July 10, according to an Associated Press
count. The violence is a continuation of a surge
of bloodshed that has rocked Iraq for months,
reviving fears of a return to the widespread
sectarian killings that pushed the country to
the brink of civil war after the 2003 U.S.-led

French police, youths
clash after veil incident
TRAPPES, France (AP) — About 250 people
hurling projectiles clashed with police firing
tear gas west of Paris, in apparent protest
over enforcement of France’s ban on Islamic
face veils. Five people were injured and six
detained in the violence, authorities said
The interior minister urged calm and dia-
logue, insisting on both the need for public
order and respect for France’s Muslims. The
incident in the town of Trappes on Friday night
reflected sporadic tensions between police
upholding France’s strict policies of secularism
and those who accuse authorities of discrimi-
nating against France’s No. 2 religion.
A few garbage dumpsters in the area were
torched and a bus shelter shattered in the
Trappes unrest. Spent tear gas capsules lay on
the road Saturday near the police station at the
center of the violence.
Palestinians say ’67 borders
basis for talks
JERUSALEM (AP) — Palestinian President
Mahmoud Abbas agreed to resume peace talks
with Israel only after U.S. Secretary of State
John Kerry gave him a letter guaranteeing the
basis of the negotiations will be Israel’s pre-
1967 borders, two senior Palestinian officials
said Saturday.
A Western official, however, later denied the
’67 lines would be the basis of negotiations.
The Palestinian officials, both of whom are
close to the Palestinian leader and privy to
internal discussions, said the U.S. letter also
stipulated that both sides are to refrain from
taking any steps that would jeopardize the
outcome of the talks. Israel is not to issue new
tenders for Jewish settlements in the West Bank,
while the Palestinians are not to pursue diplo-
matic action against Israel at any international
organizations, the officials said on condition of
anonymity because they are not authorized to
brief the media.
“The talks with Kerry were about to collapse,
and the letter came as a lifeline in the last-min-
ute bargaining,” one of the Palestinian officials
Egypt forms committee
to amend constitution
CAIRO (AP) — Egypt’s interim president
selected a team of legal experts Saturday to
rewrite controversial portions of the Islamist-
drafted constitution, as the military-backed
leadership moved quickly to try to capitalize on
the coup that ousted the country’s first freely
elected leader.
While supporters of former President
Mohammed Morsi still protest in the streets,
Egypt’s new prime minister called for consen-
sus and participation of all political groups. But
Morsi’s Muslim Brotherhood group officially
has refused to negotiate with the new govern-
ment, saying they are open for talks only after
he is reinstated.
The persistent protest and clashes, how-
ever, continue to rock hope for stability in the
white sands of Copacabana
beach typically draw millions
of sun-worshippers, New Year’s
Eve revelers and fans for free
concerts by the likes of Stevie
Wonder and the Rolling Stones.

the show is infinitely less flam-
boyant than Mick Jagger, but he
promises to stir up just as much
passion among devotees.
Pope Francis, the 76-year-
old Argentine who became the
church’s first pontiff from the
Americas in March, will turn the
crescent-shaped shoreline into a
giant stage for his first interna-
tional trip as pope, returning to
the embrace of Latin America to
preside over the Roman Catholic
Church’s World Youth Day festival.
The pontiff is coming to the
heart of a city known for pricey
real estate and sexy samba with
a message of humility, simplicity
and support for the poor — pri-
orities that he has set out already
in his four months as pope.
The Catholic Church in Brazil
is one he knows well, aware that
it is losing legions of adherents to
Pentecostal churches and secu-
larism. But Catholic youth festi-
vals are meant to reinvigorate the
faithful, and Francis, a soccer-
loving native son, is expected to
rally young people with his hum-
ble and unconventional ways.
More than a million young
Catholics are expected to flock to
Rio to celebrate their new pope.
The city overseen by the giant
Christ the Redeemer statue has
mobilized thousands of soldiers
and police to make sure the visit
goes smoothly, even as violent
anti-government protests contin-
ue to erupt after Brazil saw mass
demonstrations nationwide.
Some residents have already
prepared a uniquely Rio de Janei-
ro welcome for Francis: They’ve
built from sand life-sized images
of the pope on Copacabana, in
place of the usual sculptures of
bikini-clad beauties.
Rafaela Bastos, a pilgrim walk-
ing along the beach a few days
before the pontiff’s arrival, said
the “Francis effect” was already
evident. As she spoke, construc-
tion workers toiled at a furious
clip on the beach to finish the
enormous, white altar where Pope
Francis will celebrate a Mass.

in 1970s
WASHINGTON (AP) — Students pre-
paring to leave high school are faring
no better in reading or math than their
peers four decades ago, the government
said. Officials attributed the bleak find-
ing on more lower-performing students
staying in school rather than dropping
The news was brighter for younger
students and for blacks and Hispanics,
who had the greatest gain in reading and
math scores since the 1970s, according
to the National Assessment of Educa-
tional Progress, commonly referred to as
the Nation’s Report Card.
“In some ways, the findings are full of
hope. Today’s children ages 9 and 13 are
scoring better overall than students at
those ages in the early ‘70s,” said Brent
Houston, principal of the Shawnee Mid-
dle School in Oklahoma and a member
of the National Assessment Governing
Board, which administers the tests.
But he also noted challenges for older
“There is a disturbing lack of improve-
ment among 17-year-olds. Since the early
1970s, the average scores of 17-year-olds
in both reading and mathematics have
remained stagnant,” he said.
The report says that in reading, today’s
9- and 13-year-olds are outperforming
students tested in 1971, when that skill
was first tracked. They also did better in
math, compared with students in 1973,
the initial measurement.
Officials suggest the results for 17-
year-old students reflect fewer low-per-
forming students dropping out.
For instance,
Hispanic stu-
dents had a 32
percent dropout
rate in 1990 and
that number fell
to 15 percent in
2010, said Peggy
Carr, an associate
commi s s i oner
with the National
Center for Educa-
tion Statistics.
“These stu-
dents are gener-
ally scoring at the
lower end of the
distribution but
it’s a good thing
that they’re staying in schools,” Carr
Even so, they’re still not learning more
despite increased education spending.
“Today’s results are the nation’s edu-
cation electrocardiogram and show
positive results for the early grades and
increased performance by students of
color, but the nation’s high school stu-
dents are in desperate need of serious
attention,” said Bob Wise, president of
the Alliance for Excellent Education and
former governor of West Virginia.
“Today’s economic trends show the
rapidly growing need for college- and
career-ready students. These results
show that most of the nation’s 17-year-
olds are career ready, but only if you’re
talking about jobs from the 1970s,” he
Black and Hispanic students at all
ages narrowed the performance gap with
white students, according to the report.
Among 17-year-old students, the gaps
between black and white students and
between Hispanic and white students
were cut by half.
In math, 9-year-old black and His-
panic students today are performing at a
level where black and Hispanic 13-year-
olds were in the early 1970s.
“Black and Hispanic children have
racked up some of the biggest gains of
all,” said Kati Haycock, president of the
Education Trust, an advocacy organiza-
tion. “These results very clearly put to
rest any notion our schools are getting
worse. In fact, our schools are getting
better for every group of students that
they serve.”
The overall composition of classrooms
is changing as well.

20 years of breaking down barriers for disabled
By Kris Hilgedick
Kelly Cook knew in high school she
was interested in helping people with
disabilities. Volunteering in a hospital
setting led her to the idea that counsel-
ing might be a good way to start.
She picked up American Sign Lan-
guage to better help clients early in her
“And it’s been nice to be able to com-
municate with my aunt,” she added.
In June, she won the Missouri Reha-
bilitation Association’s Lifetime Service
Award. On Aug. 2, she’ll celebrate her
20th anniversary working for the state
of Missouri.
Cook works for Missouri Vocation-
al Rehabilitation, a state program that
helps people with disabilities obtain and
maintain employment. The VR program
is part of the Department of Elementary
and Secondary Education. Today, she
serves in a dual capacity — as assistant
director of deaf/hard of hearing services
and as a supervisor of the Centers for
Independent Living.
That latter responsibility is new to

Landmark believed a gatehouse
for Civil War fort
By Michelle Brooks
The unique “cotton rock” limestone of Mid-
Missouri was used to construct many of the
earliest buildings in Jefferson City.
Prussian-born immigrant Bernard Eveler
constructed a duplex at the corner of West
Main and Clay streets entirely with this uneven
medium between 1854-60.
The city Landmark known as The Stone
House appears to have been
used as the gatehouse to
the Union Army’s Col-
lege Hill Fort after the
1861 occupation.
The Dutch Colonial
home withstood the
traffic of soldiers to be
held by the Eveler family
more than 120 years.
The Conservation Federa-
tion of Missouri purchased the building from
the family estate in 1985 and continues to use it
today for its offices.
Today, it is one of the oldest residences within
the city limits.
The lot was first transferred from the Mis-
souri Seat of Permanent Government to John
Chappell in 1836.
Eveler bought the lot in 1854 and family
records say the house was built in 1860. He built
many other homes within two blocks of the
area, but none other remains.
The Stone House was built with four large
rooms on the main floor with oak floors, two
rooms upstairs and a full-sized basement. The
exterior walls are 16 inches thick, and the doors
and windows were made of walnut.
Eveler was one of the leading founders of
St. Peter Church in 1846. The previous year, he
married his wife, Margaret Arens. They are both
buried in the St. Peter Cemetery.
The Stone House may stand unassuming
under the mature shade trees leading from the
U.S. 50 exit to the Capitol. But underneath it and
its Cliff Street neighbors are the reminders of the
Civil War days nearly 175 years ago.
A block east on Main Street, the Porth House
was used as an armory and tunnels are rumored
to run from its basement into the fort.
Catty-corner from the Porth House across the
intersection of West Main and Bolivar streets, a
saloon was built to serve the 3,000 encamped
troops toward the end of the war. Today, Paddy
Malone’s continues the trade there.
But behind The Stone House, even more
tunnels thought to have been dug by the Union
soldiers were cause for settling and sinking for
the 20th century property owners, including a
fourth city Landmark, Cliff Manor.
Because of its height and proximity to the

defies unity
By Ann McFeatters
Scripps Howard News Service
WASHINGTON — Wel l, well,
well. Janet Napolitano is quitting
and heading west.
She leaves behind the most
mammoth government bureau-
cracy created in modern times.
And she is likely to go down in
history as someone who tried
hard, but ultimately failed, to
make a success of unifying it.
A truly daunting task it is, try-
ing to mold the unwieldy Depart-
ment of Homeland Security into
a cohesive, workable body.
Born in divisiveness, chaos
and fear after the 9/11 terror-
ist attacks, the agency had/has
many naysayers who said that it
would/will prove impossible to
unify 22 agencies whose employ-
ees have long been suspicious of
the others, sometimes actively
competing and working against
each other.
The new Cabinet-level depart-
ment, signed into law in 2002 by
President George W. Bush, was
tasked with preventing more
terrorism on U.S. soil, oversee-
ing natural disasters — of which
there have been dozens, ranging
from killer hurricanes to mur-
derous tornadoes — securing
the nation’s borders and keep-
ing airplanes from being used as
Almost 250,000 people toil at
DHS, from border patrol agents
to customs agents to Transpor-
tation Security Administration
personnel to immigration offi-
cers. With an annual budget of
$60 billion, it is the third largest
Cabinet department.
Consistently, DHS is at the
bottom of the list of Best Places
to Work in the Federal Govern-
ment, hardly a testament to its
leader. If you know anybody who
works for DHS, you know morale
is terrible.
DHS employees were warned
in an internal memo recently
that any one of them opening a
Washington Post article on the
Internet containing a classified
slide showing how the National
Security Agency eavesdrops on
international communications
was subject to being penalized.
Say what?
On the other hand, Michael
Chertoff, the second DHS secre-
tary from 2005 to 2009, was a co-
author of the Patriot Act, which
gave government huge, unprec-
edented power over the civil lib-
erties of American citizens.
A Democrat, a lawyer and
a former governor of Arizona,
Napolitano, who is 55 and single,
remains scandal-free. The most
shocking thing about her may
be her antipathy toward email,
which she refuses to use. She also
doesn’t text or tweet. You may
not even know who she is, unless
you shop at Wal-Mart and have
seen a video of her admonishing
shoppers, “If you see something,
say something.”
Napolitano leaves to become
president of the University of
California’s 10-school system
with a budget of $23 billion. As
for her tenure at DHS, she issued
this statement: “The opportunity
to work with the dedicated men
and women of the Department
of Homeland Security, who serve
on the frontlines of our nation’s
efforts to protect our communi-
ties and families from harm, has
been the highlight of my profes-
sional career.” Hardly a declara-
tion of great accomplishments.
Napolitano did suggest that it
Mayor delivers
budget to
City Council
The News Tribune
Jefferson City’s budget process
will shift into the discussion phase
now that Mayor Eric Struemph has
unveiled his proposal.
The process began in May when
City Administrator Nathan Nicko-
laus unveiled his vision of anticipat-
ed revenues and targeted spending.
Later this month, the 10-member
City Council will begin projecting
revenues, assessing the proposals
from the administrator and mayor,
and hearing from department heads
about their needs.
The two budget proposals con-
tain enough common denominators
to provide a workable foundation,
but also include differences that will
require debate and decisions.
Both budgets anticipated declin-
ing revenues; the projected $28 mil-
lion in projected revenue represents
about a $5 million decline from the
previous budget.
Both include a contingency fund.
Nickolaus proposed $50,000, which
Struemph increased to more than
$122,000. Governments have no lack
of services to finance, but we favor a
healthy contingency fund to respond
to unforeseen needs that may arise.
The mayor also proposed allocat-
ing $130,000 from vacancy savings to
fill the position of finance director.
We believe a city of our size needs and
deserves a full-time finance director.
Struemph also proposed elimina-
tion of the remaining $110,000 alloca-
tion for JCTV, a public access channel
operated by Lincoln University.
City financing of JCTV has been
an ongoing debate. We have support-
ed the elimination of city funding
because we believe the channel has
not and will not enjoy widespread
public participation in programming,
viewership or patronage.
Although the council previous-
ly cut JCTV funding by $55,000, it
stopped short of ending the remain-
ing $110,000 allocation.
Battle lines may be drawn over this
Among other changes, we support
the mayor’s proposal to add $100,000
for street chemicals. Snow removal
traditionally has been excellent in
Jefferson City and we encourage pro-
viding the resources to continue this
public safety initiative.
We also have no quarrel with the
mayor’s proposed spending of $3,000
to restore security screening at City
Council meetings. The price of pre-
vention is minimal when compared
with the potential human cost of a
Finally, we encourage the mayor
to attend more budget meetings this
year, a departure from his conspicu-
ous absence last year.
Council members, city officials
and residents invariably will have
questions or seek clarifications about
budget inclusions, priorities, amounts
and omissions.
No budget proposal is bulletproof,
but the mayor has offered a blueprint
worthy of discussion.

Adaptive reuse of SMHC
deserves consideration
Bob Priddy
Jefferson City
Dear Editor:
I used to stay in a hotel in Washington, D.C. that had
the slowest elevators I’d ever ridden. You could hardly
tell they were moving. I recalled those elevators a few
days ago when talking with some friends about Jeffer-
son City’s decades-old struggles to build a convention
or community center. And that’s when an idea sneaked
into my mind.
The hotel with the slow elevators had been a hos-
pital. The elevators moved slowly so they wouldn’t jar
the patients they carried. The former hospital rooms
were, well, not large as hotel rooms go. But they were
adequate, comfortable, and nicely appointed. A hospi-
tal had been turned into a nice hotel and meeting place.
That’s when I started connecting some dots. Hospital.
Hotel. Meeting place. Convention center.
As I recall, the discussion of the Transformation
Sales Tax some time ago involved Lincoln University
taking over the hospital for its nursing program. But
I’ve been told that idea went away when the sales tax
crashed and burned. And the last I heard, SSM has put
the hospital up for sale.
This probably makes more sense than is practical
when it comes to discussing this issue. But consider
what the hospital offers. Lots of rooms that can become
hotel rooms. Lots of rooms that can be conference
rooms. Existing kitchen facilities. Elevators. Modern
wiring, heating and cooling. Lots of parking. Lobbies.
Space that can be converted for convention and confer-
ence use. Access from our major thoroughfares. Close
to the Capitol, for those who think that is important for
four months of the year. Not far from downtown and
Missouri Boulevard restaurants.
And a very important consideration: It’s above the
flood plain.
We’ve had plenty of creative minds cooking up big-
bucks plans for convention centers in an area where
the uncertain potential for high water might discourage
bookings or create problems with events booked into
those facilities. Perhaps some of that same creativity
might consider the adaptive reuse of a historic hospital
and its additions and updates. Impractical? Well, some
creative thinkers turned an old junior college building
into the Miller Performing Arts Center a few years ago.
Admittedly, turning a vacant hospital into a convention
center/hotel would be a much larger project. But the
Miller Center is an intriguing reminder of the possibili-
ties that exist for today’s use of yesterday’s buildings.
The city does have a couple of proposals on the
table. But I haven’t heard much buzz about them lately.
So why not throw a conversion of St. Mary’s Hospital
into the mix? It’s high, dry, and close — three criteria the
two remaining proposals don’t match.
Maybe the idea will turn out to be impractical.
Maybe the dots won’t really connect. That’s okay. But
why not give it a good think?
Caution urged on
conference center
William D. Steinmeier
Jefferson City
Dear Editor:
Over the last 30-plus years, some as a government
official and some in the private sector, I have attended
countless conventions, conferences and seminars all
across the United States. I also planned and hosted a
convention of state utility regulators from the Midwest
held in St. Louis in 1990.
Many organizations sponsor regular meetings of
their members at least once or twice a year. Trade
associations abound, representing every imaginable
industry and interest. Government agencies also often
belong to associations of similar agencies from other
states. During the summer months, their meetings
often cater to both members and their families.
The appeal of coming to Jefferson City for a conven-
tion or conference is to be within walking distance of
the Capitol complex and other attractions that make
Jefferson City unique.
Participants in the conference may want to be able
to visit with legislators, for example, or with other gov-
ernment agencies and officials. Or participants may
want to be able to tour the Capitol, the Supreme Court
Building, the Governor’s Mansion, Lohman’s Landing
and other singular Jefferson City landmarks during
free-time in the conference schedule. Building a bridge
over the railroad tracks (not a tunnel under) would
make riverfront development more feasible and add an
attraction to tourists.
I have long loved the idea of a Jefferson City con-
vention center. However, a convention center location
outside of downtown would make no sense to me
whatsoever. With all due respect, there is nothing about
a meeting at a shopping mall on the edge of town that
would make coming to Jefferson City special.
At the end of the day, I trust the City Council will pay
careful attention to the economic analyses performed
by the private hospitality businesses that have looked
into the possibility of building a Jefferson City conven-
tion center. A convention center should not be pursued
if it could create an economic albatross around the
neck of our city government and its limited budget. The
late John Q. Hammons did not see the potential profit-
ability of building a larger convention center here. More
recently, Drury determined that the economics were

civil lawsuit.
William Holder decided to file a civil rights
lawsuit against Zimmerman because double
jeopardy does not apply to state laws.
The system is not designed to prosecute the
cases they can’t prove. To mislead a court case
the prosecution could use a technique called
suspension of disbelief to divert attention from
a truth to a lie, is sometimes used much like fic-
tion writers use in novels.
Baiting the switch is another technique.
“The best form of communication is confu-
sion.” Salvador Dali.
President Barack Obama’s technique to
derail the Zimmerman trial and put a culture
divide into our country is by wishing that “If I
had a son, he’d look like Trayvon Martin.”
Let’s not forget the elephant in the living
room. Media coverage has been everything
but fair and needs to open people’s eyes to the
truth; deemed to be starting ill rational panic
and civil disobedience.
Of all our emotions only fear stands alone in
its power to install us in its grip.
America’s legal system is ruled by corrup-
tion imposing their own personal beliefs and
philosophy not by the will of the people or the
Justice, real justice, will not come from hate,
it comes from truth. Plant your feet and stand
firm, not with words but with ideals. Until we
cut through ignorance and prejudice can we
achieve true justice.
Congratulations Mr. Zimmerman the jury
has spoken.

Learning a lesson from Texas
In 2007 the state of Texas enacted a rigorous
education law that required Texas high school
students to complete four years in each of the
core subject areas of math, science, English,
and social studies.
Sometimes referred to as “four-
by-four,” the requirement set the bar
very high for the students.
But now Texas has backed off of
that requirement and with good rea-
It seems that students headed
towards good-paying jobs through
vocational education may not need
all of those high level classes. In addi-
tion, Texas high schools were finding
that students taking the vocational
pathway could not take vocational
classes because of the “four-by-four” gradua-
tion requirement.
House Bill 5, which included several provi-
sions, made it possible for students to obtain
a rigorous high school education by taking less
core courses and more career-training.
According to the March 27 issue of the San
Antonio Express-News, House Bill 5 was drawn
up to give high school students more flexibility
if they choose to focus on vocational training.
The bill passed the Texas House on March
26 and then worked its way through the Texas
State Senate. It was signed in to law by Texas
Governor Rick Perry on June 10.
Critics of the bill said it would lessen the
rigor that students needed. But in the end legis-
lators and the governor agreed that rigor could
be maintained by offering different pathways
to success.
At the ceremony in which the bill was signed
in to law, Governor Perry said it provides the
balance necessary between “rigorous academic
standards and the students’ need for flexibil-
After months of public debate, Texans have
rightfully concluded that more and more of the
same thing is not necessarily the answer for all
This issue, however, is not one that is unique
to Texas.
In fact, a discussion acknowledging that stu-
dents can utilize different pathways to success
is important for schools everywhere.
Texas State Rep. Jimmie Don
Aycock, who sponsored House Bill 5,
said, “I just don’t believe everybody
needs Algebra II. I know there are
people …who disagree with that, but
I don’t believe it should be the deter-
mining factor in a student’s future.”
And that statement is the heart
of the issue. Mastering higher level
classes is good but the idea that all
high school students need all upper
level core classes is not.
A better arrangement is for stu-
dents to be challenged in classes related to the
areas they are most likely to work.
And how do we know what kind of work a
student will eventually be doing? There are
two ways. One is to simply ask the student.
The other is to allow students more of a choice
about which upper level high school classes
they will take.
Students will naturally gravitate to the upper-
level classes where their interests and passions
lie. A student’s choice is an excellent barometer
of where he or she is headed.
Furthermore, having more latitude in taking
higher-level classes individualizes a student’s
learning experience and enables all students
to be better prepared for whatever they choose
to do.
There are some high paying jobs out there
for students who want to go to a trade or tech-
nical school rather than through a college or
We shouldn’t block any student’s path with
too many requirements and too little choice.
Schools must be committed to getting students
ready, no matter which route they go.

might be necessary to expand the use of drones
from borders to the interior of the country. So
far, thankfully, nothing has come of that, at
least that we know about. But she has begun
plans to put “nonlethal weapons” on drones
operated by Customs and Border Protection to
be used against “targets of interest,” including
undocumented immigrants.
During Napolitano’s tenure, the DHS has
begun implementing plans to stockpile 1.6 bil-
lion rounds of ammunition, far more per officer
than the U.S. Army’s allotments for its soldiers.
Angered at the DHS’s refusal to explain what
it intends to do with that amount of ammuni-
tion, which includes devastatingly destructive
hollow-point bullets, Republicans in the House
last month pushed through a measure to halt
the stockpiling. The Senate has not acted.
The departure of Napolitano, the fourth per-
son to head DHS, offers an opportunity to eval-
uate the effectiveness of this federal behemoth,
but that probably won’t happen. Republicans
are in no mood to tether it; Democrats, facing
possible loss of Senate control in 2014, don’t
have the stomach for a serious probe.

percent were white in 1978. By
2012, that number fell to 56
percent. The number of His-
panics roughly tripled from 6
percent in 1978 to 21 percent
in 2012.
“Over a 40-year period, an
awful lot changes in our educa-
tion system,” said Jack Buckley,
the chief of the National Center
for Education Statistics.
While most groups of stu-
dents saw their scores climb
since 1971, the same cannot
be said when comparing 2008
results with 2012. The 9-year-
old and 17-year-old students
saw no changes and only His-
panic and female 13-year-olds
showed improvement in read-
ing and math.
The 2012 results were based
on 26,000 students in public
and private schools. The tests
took roughly one hour and were
not significantly different than
when they were first adminis-
tered in the early 1970s.
Unlike high-stakes tests that
are included in some teachers’
evaluations, these tests are a
more accurate measurement
because “these are not exams
that teachers are not teaching
to,” Haycock said.
“Nobody teaches to the NAEP
exam, which is why it’s such as
useful measure to what our kids
can actually do,” she said.

said. Those that aren’t meet-
ing the state’s requirements are
asked to follow a plan of action
for correction, she said.
For years, Cook worked as
VR counselor, helping people
with disabilities get the assis-
tance and training they needed
to find a job. Over the years,
technological advances have
revolutionized the job market
for people with hearing loss.
Not only do many deaf people
use cochlear implants today,
they also rely on all the IT
devices that have made human
communication more about
typing and less about talking.
As a counselor, Cook used
her knowledge of ASL to com-
municate with her clients.
While many state workers sit
behind shaggy stacks of paper
trays and 3-ring binders, Cook’s
desk is clear so visitors can see
her arms and hands. A video
phone sits on the corner.
“I don’t know if I’m fluent,
but I’m functional,” she said.
Today, she oversees eight
counselors from across the
state who serve deaf and hard-
of-hearing individuals.
As an administrator, she no
longer works directly with cli-
ents. Instead, she pulls together
training seminars for the coun-
selors she manages and she
handles questions from them
as they arise. “If there are ques-
tions, concerns — and some-
times complaints — about the
program, they are directed at
me,” she explained.
She said many times
employers don’t intend to dis-
criminate, but they are uncer-
tain about how to communi-
cate with a deaf person. Coun-
selors at Vocational Rehabilita-
tion help their clients address
and surmount those concerns.
“Vocational rehabilitation
gives a lot of opportunities to indi-
viduals to help them find good
employment that is consistent
with their limitations,” she said.
Cook was born and raised in
Columbia. She earned a mas-
ter’s degree in rehabilitation
counseling from the University
of Missouri in 1993.
Cook lives with her husband,
Michael Cook, in Hartsburg. The
couple loves animals and has
numerous pets, including three
horses, several cats and a black

ple who fire guns at drones
are endangering the public
and property and could be
prosecuted or fined, the Fed-
eral Aviation Administration
warned Friday.
The FAA released a state-
ment in response to questions
about an ordinance under
consideration in the tiny farm-
ing community of Deer Trail,
Colo., that would encourage
hunters to shoot down drones.
The administration reminded
the public that it regulates the
nation’s airspace, including the
airspace over cities and towns.
A drone “hit by gunfire
could crash, causing damage
to persons or property on the
ground, or it could collide with
other objects in the air,” the
statement said. “Shooting at
an unmanned aircraft could
result in criminal or civil liabil-
ity, just as would firing at a
manned airplane.”
Under the proposed ordi-
nance, Deer Trail would grant
hunting permits to shoot
drones. The permits would cost
$25 each. The town would also
encourage drone hunting by
awarding $100 to anyone who
presents a valid hunting license
and identifiable pieces of a
drone that has been shot down.
Deer Trail resident Phillip
Steel, 48, author of the propos-
al, said in an interview that he
has 28 signatures on a petition
— roughly 10 percent of the
town’s registered voters. Under
Colorado law, that requires local
officials to formally consider
the proposal at a meeting next
month, he said. Town officials
would then have the option of
adopting the ordinance or put-
ting it on the ballot in an elec-
tion this fall, he said.
The proposed ordinance
is mostly a symbolic protest
against small, civilian drones
that are coming into use in the
United States, Steel said. He
acknowledged that it’s unlikely
there are any drones in use
near Deer Trail.
“I don’t want to live in a
surveillance society. I don’t feel
like being in a virtual prison,”
Steel said. “This is a pre-emp-
tive strike.”
He dismissed the FAA’s
warning. “The FAA doesn’t
have the power to make a law,”
he said.
The FAA is working on
regulations to safely integrate
drones into the skies over the
U.S., where manned aircraft
are prevalent. The Congress
gave the FAA until 2015 to
develop the regulations, but
the agency is behind schedule.
FAA officials have estimated
that once regulations are in
place, thousands of drones will
be in use across the country
for a wide variety of purposes,
from helping farmers figure
out which crops need watering
to tracking sea lions in remote
rocky outcroppings to aiding
search and rescue missions.
But the Deer Trail proposal is
the latest ripple in a spreading
backlash against drones. Doz-
ens of laws aimed at curbing the
use of the unmanned aircraft
have been introduced in states
and cities. Privacy advocates
have expressed fear that police
will use drones to cheaply and
effectively conduct widespread
surveillance without warrants.
The Association for
Unmanned Vehicle Systems
International, a drone indus-
try trade group, was concerned
enough last year about people
threatening to shoot down
drones that it issued a state-
ment warning that such com-
ments were “irresponsible,
dangerous and unlawful.”
Michael Toscano, presi-
dent and CEO of the group,
expressed similar concerns Fri-
day, saying drones “are being
designed to serve the public
good....The myriad of impor-
tant uses will be imperiled if
they become targets. ... The
suggestion that Americans take
up arms against unmanned
aircraft also endangers citizens
on the ground.”

Dad, not a day in the past twenty years has gone by that your
presence isn’t felt in our lives. So much has happened in our family,
we have gained many and lost a dear few. While we know your
spirit has been with us during our joys and our sorrows, we still
miss your physical presence.... your smile, your laughter, your blue
eyes, the sound of your voice!
We know you’ve been there to welcome the loved ones we’ve
lost and we also know when each of us come to the end of our
journey, you will be there with open arms to welcome us to our
eternal reward. You, along with Brett and Lindsay are our guardian
angels, for those we love are never really lost to us...
For your family your special love lives on... in your children,
grandchildren and great-grandchildren peacefully daddy...
Lonely is the home without you,
Life to us is not the same;
All the world would be like heaven,
If we could have you back again.
A light is from our household gone,
A voice we loved is still,
A place is vacant in our home, That never can be Àlled.
May the God of Love and Mercy,
Care our loved one who is gone,
And bless with consolation, those left to carry on.
The happy hours we once enjoyed,
How sweet their memory still,
But death has left a vacant place, This world can never Àll.
God gave us strength to bear it,
And courage to Àght the blow,
What it has meant to lose you, God alone will ever know.
Missing you deeply

After restoring the outside of a historic down-
town building, Central Bank will head indoors
this fall.
Construction on the 101 W. High St. build-
ing will take place from September to Decem-
ber and will essentially restore the inside. The
improvements will make the “inside match the
outside,” said Jim Crabtree, Central Bank Vice
President of Corporate Physical Assets and VP
of Central Missouri Realty.
Plans for the structure include taking out
some “improvements” made years ago that
don’t match the historic essence of the build-
Crabtree said the original fabric of the build-
ing is in place, but could use a little freshening
up. “It looks a little tired,” he noted.
The current tenants were asked to give the
building owners a few months for construction
and will be given the option of moving back into
the space once renovations are complete.
As far as what the space will be used for, that has
yet to be determined, Crabtree said. Future plans
will also depend on whether the current tenants,
Wilson’s Fitness and the Post-Dispatch, decide to
continue leasing their respective spaces.
Crabtree said the second floor will stay office
spaces and the third floor, a larger open space,
will receive a few minor adjustments. A divid-
ing wall will be torn down and a drop ceiling
will be removed to restore the ceiling back to
its original height. The third floor has large
“beautiful windows” providing a unique view
of downtown.
As previously reported, Wilson’s Fitness plans
to move out of that space and into a location on
Dunklin Street, creating an all-inclusive, yoga-
only studio.
Central Missouri Realty, a division of Central
Bank, has owned the High Street building since
1942. Other improvements to the building’s
infrastructure, including plumbing, heating and
cooling, will also be made.
The building owners do plan to host an open
house in the future to show off the improve-
ments. As far as what the space will become,
Crabtree said everyone should “just stay
Store closing after
‘new chapter of our life’ sale
After nearly five years in business, Perfect
Fit Boutique is closing its doors. Owners Lisa
and Bob Rackers are preparing to begin a “new
chapter” of their lives, entering semi-retirement
and moving to Florida.
“We have chosen to close the store and have
intentions to move to Destin, Florida,” Bob
“We hate to say ‘going out of business sale,’”
because of its negative connotation.” The Rack-
ers prefer to call it a “next chapter of our life sale
or going to Florida sale.”
The store will take advantage of the downtown
sidewalk sales happening the first week of August,
and the Rackers plan to close for good toward the
middle of the month. They have already started
marking down their product and plan to be out of
the storefront no later than Aug. 31.
“We’re just selling out what we have,” Bob
noted. “As it gets closer, we’ll definitely ramp
things up. Come in and get the best selections.”
The local retail store has been located at 120
E. High St. for two years. Prior to its current
location, it was located on Dunklin Street, and
originally started in Owensville.
“We’ve had a great experience and want to
thank everyone that has supported us,” the
owner said.
The Rackers are excited to move south where
their sons are located, and said they want to
slow down a bit. They do not plan to open a
new business.
New name, new owner,
same pizza?
The local pizza joint located at 1508 E.
McCarty St. is sporting a new name and new
owner. The former Pizza Haus restaurant is now
known as JC Pizza Company. Jeff Caldwell, the
new owner, said the restaurant is getting away
from the local franchise name, but most every-
thing else remains the same.
“We still have the best pizza in town,” he
A new sign touting the revised name is in place
and Caldwell said he plans to do some “sprucing
up” before hosting a grand reopening in the com-
ing weeks. A sign on the door last week also indi-
cates the restaurant will be closed Aug. 29-31.

Whether you have just 2
employees or 100 employees,
there are great options for set-
ting up a retirement plan for
your company. I have been in
the financial services
industry for more
than 20 years, and
most of that time, I’ve
been in the retirement
plans business. The
smallest plan I’ve ever
set up was for only 3
employees. The larg-
est plan I oversaw had
$1 billion in assets
and more than 40,000
participants. For
many years, I was the
Director of the State
of Missouri Deferred
Compensation Plan offered to
state employees. Whether very
small or in the “mega” catego-
ry, retirement plans have great
flexibility to help you lower
your tax bill, save for retire-
ment, and help you achieve
financial independence.
Everyone wins
You can design a retirement
plan to serve whatever needs
are most important to you.
Maybe you just want to have a
great benefit for your employ-
ees — to reward them, retain
them, and attractive other
talent. Or maybe you have a
specialized group of employ-
ees that you want to reward in
a unique way. Provisions exist
that allow you to get creative
with who gets how much and
under what circumstances.
Everyone wins: owners, man-
agement, young and older
The basics
As the United States grew in
the past, many companies had
what are called Defined Ben-
efit (DB) plans. These are the
traditional pension plans that
came along with the gold watch
and the grandfather clocks.
Employees did not contribute
to these plans. Rather, they
could count on a retirement
payout based on their pay and
their years of service. That is,
For the most part,
those days are gone.
As we read in the
news today, compa-
nies, as well as public
entities, are having
a hard time meeting
those obligations.
And so the cre-
ation of DEFINED
(DC) plans emerged.
These are the plans
you are familiar with:
401(k), 457, 403(b),
etc. The employee
usually makes a CONTRIBU-
TION from their compensation

bution or other sorts of fund-

Here is the over-riding prin-
cipal in setting up a retirement
plan for your company. You,
as the owner, will receive good
tax benefits; but you must
also provide benefits to your
employees. Again: everyone
must win for the plan to work.
There are many different plan
types to suit the needs of a
variety of business.
Simplified Employee
Pension IRA (SEP IRA)
This plan type is well suit-
ed for small businesses and
the self-employed. It’s easy to
administer and flexible. The
only money that goes into these
plans is money contributed by
the employer. Employees do
not make contributions.
This is well suited for small
employers, typically fewer than
100 employees. It’s easy to
administer and has provisions

Local printing corporation
Modern Litho announced Fri-
day that it’s adding St. Louis-
based company Midtown
Printing to its family of com-
“Our core values are very
much aligned. We believe that
those important fundamen-
tals, plus the complementary
services we will be providing
in unison to valued customers,
point to strong growth oppor-
tunities for both our organi-
zations,” said Modern Litho
President Darrell Moore.
No changes will be made
in the way of employees being
cut or moving equipment,
Moore noted. The merger
will simply expand Modern
Litho’s customer base into the
St. Louis market, as well as
offer Midtown Printing more
options to offer its custom-
ers. Moore explained that his
company has more advanced
technology, so the two com-
panies will be able to share
those resources.
Moore said he’s known Mid-
town Printing President Tom
Auffenberg for approximately
10 years. “I highly respect him
and his company,” the local
business owner said.
“The merger blends two
great companies that have
always been successful at
providing our most impor-
tant stakeholders — custom-
ers, employees and vendors
— with win-win advantages,”
Moore said.
The companies are in the
final stages of signing a con-
tract, but Moore noted it is a
“handshake agreement” and
will be made official soon.

NEW YORK (AP) — As far
as catfights go, this is a doozy.
Barbie, long the reigning
queen in the doll world, has
suddenly been thrust into the
battle of her life.
But Barbie’s competitors
look nothing like the blue-
eyed, blond-haired, long-
legged fashion icon. And they
don’t have the same old stan-
dards of beauty as the aging
diva either.
Monster High dolls, vampy
teens that are patterned after
the offspring of monsters like
Dracula and Frankenstein,
have neon pink and green
streaks in their hair. They wear
platform heels and mini-skirts
with skulls on them. And the
dolls that go by names like
Draculaura and Ick Abbey
Bominable are gaining on
In the Maddux household
in Portage, Wis., for instance,
Olivia, 10, has been playing
with Barbie for six or seven
years. But she added Monster
High dolls to the mix a year
“I look at Olivia and some
of her friends and see they’re
growing out of Barbies,” says
Olivia’s mom, Lisa Maddux,
42, a freelance writer.
That Barbie is losing her
edge is no surprise. Since
debuting in 1959 as the world’s
first fashion doll, Barbie has
long been a lightning rod for
controversy and competitors.
To be sure, Barbie is still No.
1 in the doll market, and the
Mattel franchise has an esti-
mated $1.3 billion in annual
sales. But Barbie’s sales have
slipped for four straight quar-
ters, even while the overall
doll category is up 6 percent
year-to-date, according to the
researcher NPD Group.
Meanwhile, Monster High,

SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) —
A California judge said Friday
that he’s finalizing a settle-
ment worth more than $1 bil-
lion in cases where motorists
say the value of their Toyota
vehicles plunged after recalls
over claims they unexpectedly
U.S. District Judge James
Selna said he was approving
the deal that was announced
in December and will affect 22
million consumers.
Hundreds of lawsuits have
been filed against Toyota
since 2009, when the Japanese
automaker started receiving
numerous complaints that
its cars accelerated on their
own, causing crashes, injuries
and even deaths. More than
14 million vehicles have been
recalled since the claims sur-
Toyota has denied the alle-
gations, blaming driver error,
faulty floor mats and stuck

Steve Berman, an attorney
representing Toyota owners,
has said the settlement is the
largest in U.S. history involv-
ing automobile defects, esti-
mated to be in value of up to
$1.6 billion. He added that
those who sold their vehicles
at a loss can receive anywhere
from $125 to $10,000 depend-
ing on the level of deprecia-
“This is a great settlement
for consumers,” Berman said.
“It includes both safety fixes
to make Toyota vehicles safer,
as well as monetary relief for
owners who saw a reduction
in their vehicle’s value.”
The company had previ-
ously said it will take a one-
time, $1.1 billion pre-tax
charge against earnings to
cover the estimated costs of
the settlement.
“This agreement allows
us to resolve a legacy legal
issue in a way that provides
significant value to our cus-
tomers and demonstrates that
they can depend on Toyota to
stand behind our vehicles,”

which is also made by Mat-
tel, has become the No. 2 doll
brand in just three years, with
more than $500 million in
annual sales, says BMO Capital
Markets Gerrick Johnson.
In addition to the competi-
tion from Monster High, Bar-
bie has had to contend with
increasing criticism of her
impossibly proportioned body.
While the 54-year-old doll has
over the years graduated from
pin-up girl to a range of char-
acters that include astronauts,
engineers and princesses,
detractors continue to dis-
miss the 11.5-inch doll’s frame
as impossibly top-heavy and
Barbie’s measurements
equate to about a 39-inch bust,
18-inch waist and 33-inch hips
on a life-size woman. The aver-
age American woman, by com-
parison, is about a size 14.
Artist Nickolay Lamm on
Monday posted pictures of
what the doll would look like
if it had the average measure-
ments of a 19-year-old, reveal-
ing a much more meaty phy-
sique. The pictures were fea-
tured on Web sites from CNN
to Time and renewed contro-
versy over the doll’s effect on
girls’ body image.
Monster High dolls, on
the other hand, although still
pretty slim, have a punk rock
look that’s intended to send
the message that being differ-
ent is OK. And they’re aimed at
slightly older children — add-
ing to their appeal — while
Barbie’s increasingly young
audience is hurting sales. After
all, no child wants to play with
anything seen as a baby toy.
Barbie marketed to children
that are between age 3 and
9, but over the past 15 years
or so, the range has shrunk
to around 3 to 6, Silver, the
toy analyst says. This has hap-
pened because older children
are likely gravitating toward
electronic devices or dolls like
Monster High, which are aimed
at kids 6 to 13, Silver says.
It’s a trickle-down effect: The
same reason why 5-year-olds
who belted out “The Wheels on
the Bus,” 25 years ago would
today be more interested One
Direction boy band pop songs,
he says.
“Kids are growing up much
faster younger,” Silver says. “A
6-year-old is looking for some-
thing a little edgier. That’s the
reason why Monster High has
had so much success.”
Kim Blake’s daughter Sarah,
7, used to be a Barbie fan, but
she’s moved beyond that. She’s
getting ready to donate her 3-
foot tall Barbie dream house
and about half of her 20 Barbie
dolls to charity.
Now, she’s more into play-
ing outside or taking Taekwon-
do martial arts classes and less
into dolls in general. That’s a
switch from her mother, 35,
who played with Barbie dolls
until she was 13.
“Her girlfriends don’t play
with them any more either,”
says Blake, a store manager in
Renton, Wash. “They’ve actu-
ally said the word ‘babyish’
talking about them.”
The last time Barbie wasn’t
feeling the love was about 12
years ago when, after years
of little competition, pouty-
lipped Bratz dolls became
wildly successful. They sent
squeaky clean Barbie into a
sales spiral.
Bratz dolls were edgy. They
wore low-rise jeans, had heavy
makeup and exposed navels.
And they were sultrier than
Barbies. But the Bratz fad faded
in 2005, and Barbie slowly
regained sales ground.
The same may happen with
Monster High dolls. Industry
experts say it will take a lot to
dethrone the Barbie. “It’s still
one of the strongest brands in
industry,” says Needham & Co.
toy analyst Sean McGowan.
In a call with investors on
Wednesday, Mattel CEO Bryan
Stockton admitted that the
success of Monster High and
its other doll brands might be
causing some of Barbie’s sales
dip. But he points out that Bar-
bie’s sales are higher now than
when Monster High dolls were
launched in 2010. He said the
competition is energizing the
entire doll sector.
In general, “hot toys” have
a cyclical nature, usually with
a 5-year time span, says BMO
Capital’s Johnson. This ensures
that no toy stays on top for-
ever. Even evergreen brands
that endure for decades, like
Barbie, have highs and lows in
“It happens with everything
— name a toy, and it’s had its
ups and downs,” Johnson says.
“At some point the day comes
when a kid says, ‘Nah, I’m tired
of this.’”
That day isn’t completely
here for Olivia Maddux yet. Her
mom, Lisa, believes her new
love affair with the Monster High
dolls may have in fact extended
the life of Barbie dolls.
“I think the addition of
Monster High dolls, aimed at
a little different demographic,
kept Barbies alive in our place,
since she plays with them
together,” she says.
That may be true. In Olivia’s
world, the two — Barbie and
Monster High — peacefully
coexist. Well, sort of.
“The Monster High dolls
are like the Barbie’s servants,”
Olivia says.

Gov. Nixon to join President
Obama in Warrensburg
Nixon is joining President Barack Obama
during his upcoming visit to the Univer-
sity of Central Missouri.
Obama is traveling Wednesday to the
Warrensburg school and Galesburg, Ill.,
to make his case for spending on infra-
structure and for universal pre-school
programs. The president is also expected
to highlight the economic benefits of
overhauling immigration laws.
Nixon announced Saturday that he
would join Obama during the Missouri
stop. He noted that the University of
Central Missouri is part of an Innovation
Campus initiative that offers accelerated
degrees in high-demand fields.
The trip will mark Obama’s first visit
to the state since a May 2012 commence-
ment speech at Joplin High School. That
visit marked the one-year anniversary of
a deadly tornado that hit the southwest-
ern Missouri city.

Audiences cheer for local actors
By Kris Hilgedick
Jefferson City rolled out the red carpet for the
cast and crew of the independent film “Appari-
tional” with a Hollywood-style premiere Satur-
day night.
Hundreds of Mid-Missourians bought tickets
to see the movie that was filmed at the Missouri
State Penitentiary site in April.
The weekend’s events started Saturday with a
9:30 a.m. showing to a nearly full room of movie-
goers at Goodrich Capital 8 Theater.
“For a scary film, it wasn’t horribly scary. But I
was spooked a little bit,” Mary Jo Durkin said. “It
really was very good for an independent film.”
The film tells the story of a team of paranormal
investigators who are under pressure to create
sensationalistic episodic television; their show
is called “Ghost Sightings.” However, catching
ghosts on film isn’t proving to be an easy task and
their producer is threatening to pull the plug on
the enterprise. A plea for help from an old man
leads them to an abandoned prison — the perfect
place to harbor angry spirits, if they indeed exist.
As one of the characters explains: “Prisons
tend to hold a lot of negative energy ... they are
an emotional time capsule.”
The film makes full use of the MSP site’s
creepy gothic architecture and disturbing physi-
cal ruination.
Director Andrew P. Jones was in the lobby
when the audience poured out of the theater
Saturday morning. During the screening, many
in the audience gasped on cue during the scary
moments but they also clapped and whistled to
recognize local actors in the smaller roles.
“It’s so fun to see the locals (actors) get
applause,” he said.
Jones — who personally is curious about para-
normal activity — has directed documentaries
about paranormal research and has served as an
editor on reality shows such as “Hell’s Kitchen.”
He said his work caused him to raise ques-
tions like: What if a reality show was based on a
group of ghost hunters? And what if they were in
a place that was really haunted?
“That’s what spawned the script,” he said.
Although it is a horror film, the movie doesn’t
depend heavily on gruesome images to shock
audience members. Jones said he has tired of
blockbuster spectacles and he thinks other view-
ers have, as well.
He wanted to create a suspenseful thriller and

VERSAILLES — Mayor Terry
Silvey said a project to revamp
the city’s water system is nearing
completion, although “nothing
ever gets done as fast as the mayor
would like.”
Silvey said contractors are cur-
rently doing repair work to sev-
eral streets, sidewalks and green
spaces that were torn up to allow
for the replacement of water mains
throughout the city.
“We have received a few com-
plaints about the areas that are
still torn up from the project, but
... sometimes it’s necessary to tear
things up before they can be fixed,”
Silvey said. Weather permitting, the
project will be complete by the end
of August, he said.
Silvey was referring to work on
the second phase of a $1.8 million
project to revamp and repair the
city’s aging water system. The work
included replacing some 28,000
linear feet of water mains at various
locations throughout the town.
The decision to replace the
mains and do some other work
on the town’s water system came
about after the Board of Aldermen
received a number of complaints
from residents about low water
pressure and excessively hard and
rusty water.
He said the city called in an
engineer who said the only way to
handle the problem was to add a
chlorination system and to replace
the old water mains.
Earlier this year, the city added a
chlorination system and Silvey said
that move alone had already made
a major difference in the quality of
the tap water.
“Now that all the pipe replace-
ment is complete and the new chlo-
rination system is supplying the
entire city, we have been receiving
feedback from the residents about
how much better their service is,”
Silvey said.
He said in addition to comple-
tion of the pipe replacement and
chlorination projects, pressuriza-
tion testing has also been complet-
ed, and all the crews have left to do
is replace concrete on sidewalks
and streets that were torn up dur-
ing construction phase.
“The contractors are also in the
process of hooking up properties
to the new mains and repairing
damage to lawns where those new
hookups were necessary,” Silvey
said. “And, the city is footing the
bill for those private hookups so
the residents won’t have any out-
of-pocket expense.”
When work on the water system
is complete, the city has plans to
revamp its sewer system as well.
Versailles water project nears completion

Morgan County officials are
violating people’s constitutional
rights when they confiscate mail
sent to detainees in the jail, the
American Civil Liberties Union
charged in a federal lawsuit filed
last week.
The St. Louis-based ACLU of
Eastern Missouri (ACLU-EM) also
asked U.S. District Judge Nanette
K. Laughrey to certify the case as a
class action, and to issue a prelimi-
nary injunction.
The key issue, the five-page
lawsuit said, is that officials don’t
inform the person who sent the
mail that it was confiscated and
not delivered to the inmate — and
that officials don’t give the sender
a chance to fight the decision.
“The (U.S.) Supreme Court has
held that the First Amendment
entitles prisoners to receive and
send mail, subject to censorship
only when there are procedural
safeguards,” Jeffrey Mittman, the
ACLU-EM’s executive director, said
in a Friday evening news release.
“Morgan County’s complete lack
of due process fails to protect
senders of mail that is wrongfully
Anthony Rothert, the ACLU-
EM’s legal director, filed the law-
suit on behalf of Tara Ballenger,
an Oregon state resident who —
in the lawsuit’s words — “is not
incarcerated” and “has regularly
sent printed materials, including
letters, newspaper and magazine
clippings, photocopies of news-
paper and magazine articles, and
books, to a detainee at the Morgan
County Adult Detention Center.”

Bray and freshman Council-
man Larry Henry organized the
two-hour meeting.
“Ralph and I (put) together a
list of topics that we were looking
forward to discussing,” Henry said
after the meeting. “We knew tran-
sit would come up.
“We knew we’d have a discus-
sion on the conference center. And
the budget — those are the three
hot-button issues right now.”
The council continues to look
at two options that bidders have
proposed for a conference center,
both men reported — and said
they understand the public’s reluc-
tance to subsidize the project.
Much of the residents’ focus
was on Jefftran, the city-operated
bus service that, last spring, faced
a hefty budget cut.
“The funding was restored,”
Bray reminded the audience. “I
believe I can speak for the city
council — we and the staff are
going to look at Jefftran, inside
and out.”
Longtime resident Sandra Rob-
inson was one of several people
who encouraged the council to
improve bus services.
“How can we go about hav-
ing more money (for transit) so
the disabled, senior citizens, stu-
dents and people who don’t have
their own transportation can get
around?” she asked, adding that

develop compelling characters.
He said movies like “Polter-
geist” not only terrified their
audiences, they also told sto-
ries about people and families.
“For me, the thing that is
missing in many movies are the
personal stories. ‘Apparitional’
is a throwback to movies made
in the 1980s and 1990s where
you care about the characters
first,” he said. “I really hope I
achieved that.”
With his script already writ-
ten, Jones visited several old
prisons before he toured the
Missouri State Penitentiary.
“The first time I stepped in
it, I was in love,” he said.
He said one of the most
challenging aspects of “Appa-
ritional” was “making a film
that looks like a big movie on a
micro budget.”
“But we had an amazing
location and incredible actors,”
he said.
With digital editing technol-
ogy so easy to obtain, Jones —
who has spent 29 years in the
movie industry — said there
are fewer barriers to entry
today and more competitors.
While making a film for the-
ater release might be gratify-
ing, Jones noted it can also
create a lot of debt. His goal
was to make “the best film
we could,” even if it was not
intended for wide-release in
the nation’s theaters.
He said “Apparitional” will be
a monetary success if it performs
well for the video-on-demand,
DVD and cable markets.
The film has a small ensem-
ble cast of four protagonists
and one villain. A cameo by
Dee Wallace — who played
Eliot’s mother in Steven Spiel-
berg’s “E.T.” — adds some
needed name-recognition to
the production.
The cast is rounded out by a
few local Jefferson City actors
who were cast by local theater
veteran Shae Marie Eickhoff.
Many of the people who left
the theater Saturday morning
were thrilled with the produc-
Bridget Dalton was a small
child in the mid-1960s when sev-
eral prisoners escaped from MSP.
“I remember the neigh-
bors and the police searching
around our house,” she said.
Although Jones said his
script was largely written
before he heard about the
MSP prison, Dalton thought
the movie elicited memories
of things she’d heard about life
behind “The Walls.”
“It was very spooky,” she
said. “It brought out a lot of the
tales we’ve heard.”
Peggy Landwehr — who
serves as president of Discover
Jefferson City, the foundation
that helped fund the production
— was delighted with the movie.
Landwehr has toured the
prison six times over the years.
“It’s awesome it’s available for
something like this. For the
story line, it was the perfect
location,” she said.

in 1868, and makes several
changes in federal constitu-

The ACLU lawsuit focused
on the second part of the

tion, which says: “No State

law which shall abridge the
privileges or immunities of

nor shall any State deprive

With help from a $1 million state grant,
Linn State Technical College and Lincoln
University are working with three area
high schools to improve information
technology training.
Their work is part of the “Central Mis-
souri Innovation Campus,” or CMIC —
part of a total of $9 million in grants that
Gov. Jay Nixon announced last year.
Innovation Campuses will train stu-
dents for career opportunities in high-
demand fields, cut the time it takes to
earn a college degree, and reduce student
debt, Nixon said when he announced the
Mid-Missouri grant last Aug. 1.
Jefferson City, Helias Catholic and Fati-
ma high schools are involved in the pro-
gram which, sponsors said, is designed to
direct high school students toward cours-
es and programs specifically designed to
prepare them for careers in information
technology, and to reduce the time need-
ed to earn their degrees.
The program gives those students
increased opportunities for dual-credit
courses at either Lincoln or Linn Tech, let-
ting the high school students earn college
credit hours.
They also will receive additional, inten-
sive advising from guidance counselors,
college academic advisers, and mentors
from the partner corporations.
The Jefferson City Area Chamber of
Commerce helped write the grant request
and is an active partner in its implemen-
The grant announcement came shortly
before Carolyn Mahoney retired as LU
At the time, she said: “We are delighted
with the partnership we have formed in
central Missouri to support the activities
of this important economic development
“The involvement of the Jefferson
City Area Chamber of Commerce, sev-
eral local high schools, Linn State, and
14 area businesses is as significant as it
is necessary.”
For their part, Lincoln University and
Linn State Technical College collaborated
and revised curriculum to allow students
with a two-year computer programming
degree from Linn Tech to transfer, seam-
lessly, to finish a four-year college degree
at Lincoln University, under terms of a
signed agreement between the schools.
“This articulation agreement helps
graduates who enter the workforce with
the skills set and technical degree (that)
local business partners and the economy
need,” said Scott Peters, Linn State’s exec-
utive director of Development.
Mid-Missouri schools launching ‘Innovation Campus’
With Marianna Werdehau-
sen newly at the helm of Our
Lady of the Snows School,
students will be engaged in
more hands-on activities, both
indoors and out, according to
Formerly a teacher at the
school, Werdehausen is “very
excited” to begin this fall as
the school’s new principal, she
Werdehausen plans to insti-
tute more project-based learn-
ing, along with activities geared
toward interraction between
the school and the surround-
ing community, she said.
“Kids learn more from
hands-on learning, rather than
(with) paper and pencil. I want
learning to be fun,” she said.
With a son currently
deployed in Afghanistan,
Werdehausen hopes to invite
current and retired military
members to the school around
the anniversary of 9/11 and
involve the students in honor-
ing veterans.
Inspired by her apprecia-
tion of nature, Werdehausen
plans to instruct the students
in gardening skills through the
cultivation of fall plants on
nearby property.
“I absolutely love the out-
doors. A garden would be a
cool thing to have,” she said.
The students will likely grow
green beans, pumpkins and
squash, Werdehausen said.
Werdehausen ultimately
hopes to teach canning skills to
the students, then donate the
canned green beans, she said.
Both students and parents
will carve harvested pumpkins
into jack-o-lanterns that could
be used to decorate the school
around Halloween, she said.
Werdehausen also desires
to establish a school-based
recreational soccer league to
promote fitness and sports-
manship, she said.
The school’s student coun-
cil recently raised funds to
build soccer nets for use dur-
ing recess, Werdehausen said.
Playing on randomized
teams each game, students
will utilize the new equipment
to build relationships with
their peers and understand
the value of exercise, Werde-
hausen said.
“They can get fit by playing
with others,” she said.
Despite her desires to intro-
duce project-based learning
and other enriching activities,
Werdehausen still considers
the instruction of Christian
values central to her vision
for Our Lady of the Snows
“I want kids to love their
faith and be excited about
sharing their faith with others,”
Werdehausen said.

The Southern Boone
County R-1 School District at
Ashland is welcoming a new
superintendent for the com-
ing school year.
New Superintendent Chris-
topher Felmlee previously
worked as superintendent of
the Van-Far R-1 School Dis-
trict in Vandalia. Prior to 2007,
Felmlee served as superinten-
dent of the Lutie School Dis-
trict in Theodosia.
But Felmlee will not be
the only new face at the dis-
trict this year. Many new staff
members will be joining the
district at each school and
administration level.
Four new special education
para-professionals will begin
this year, as will instructors for
high school special education,
middle school special education
and elementary special educa-
tion. Other new staff members
will be taking subjects such as
elementary music, high school
math, high school English, first
grade, second grade, agriculture
and science.
For the coming school year,
the only change to the cur-
riculum will be the addition of
a 9th grade ancient civilization

When Westminster Col-

first classes Aug. 22 in Fulton,
another batch of students
nearly 14,000 miles away will
be doing the same thing.
This year marks Westminster’s
new Mesa, Ariz.. campus’ inau-
gural school year, offering majors
in international business, trans-
national studies, environmental
science, environmental studies,
and English with minors in pre-
law and health professions.
Though the students at both
campuses will have very differ-
ent geographical and cultural
experiences, their school year
at Westminster will have plenty
of similarities — including the
Price Leadership Program, new
this year for all students.
Westminster students will
use an e-portfolio to plan, col-
lect and reflect on their best
work, Westminster events and
extra-curricular activities, mak-
ing a personalized showcase of
their leadership development
and career skills that can be
presented after graduation.
Staff changes for the com-
ing year include 12 new faculty
The success rate for graduates
is 96 percent, which means that
percentage of Westminster grad-
uates start their first job or are in
graduate or professional school
within six months of graduation.

Students of Belle-Bland school district will
see a shorter school week this year.
Incoming Superintendent Patrick Call said
schools in the district no longer will hold class-
es Mondays, making the school week Tuesday
through Friday.
“It will allow employees and families the
chance to do appointments and errands on
Mondays and not miss school,” Call said.
Call, who began his first year as superin-
tendent of the district in July, said he was not
sure of all the reasons why the district chose to
shorten the school week, but noted it surely has
to do with finances, at least in part.
“It will save on utilities, fuel and mainte-
nance,” Call said. “We will know how much
and further benefits as we go through the
Call also said the district will continue imple-
menting Common Core standards, which were
adopted by the Missouri Board of Education in
2010. The standards define the knowledge and
skills all students should master by the end of
each grade to be on track for college and career

A Fulton man was in fair
condition Saturday after a
morning motorcycle accident
near Boonville.
Two Jefferson City teens
were treated and released Fri-
day evening after their car was
hit from behind in a long traf-
fic back-up on U.S. 54 near
Holts Summit.
And three Eldon residents
were hurt late Friday in a two-
car collision on Route Y, in
southwestern Miller County.
The Highway Patrol said
Donald D. Downey, 54, Ful-
ton, was hurt about 10:40 a.m.
Saturday when he failed to
negotiate a curve on Missouri
5, five miles south of Boon-
ville, and his 2007 Harley-
Davidson ran off the left side
of the highway, struck a ditch
and overturned.
He was thrown from the
motorcycle, and taken to Uni-
versity Hospital, Columbia.
Downey was wearing a safe-
ty helmet, the patrol reported.
Troopers said Nancy A.
Boessing, 50, Lisa M. Chase,
34, and Nathan D. Creason, 18
— all of Eldon — were taken to
Lake Regional Hospital, Osage
Beach, with moderate injuries.
The hospital didn’t have any
information available Satur-
day on their treatment or con-
The Patrol said Boessing
and Chase were passengers
in a 1997 Chevrolet Silverado
that was backing eastbound,
out of a private driveway,
onto Route Y, when it was
hit in the side by Creason’s
northbound 1991 Chevrolet
S-10 truck.
The Silverado was driven
by Richard M. Boessing, 45,
Eldon, who was not reported
as injured.
Investigators said everyone
was using a seat belt.
The accident happened
at 10:20 p.m., about 650 feet
north of the Route Y intersec-
tion with Isbon Road.
Earlier Friday, Calder
J. Kennedy, 18, and Lily M.
Willis, 18 — both of Jef-
ferson City — were treated
and released from St. Mary’s
Health Center after Kenne-
dy’s 2005 Chrysler was rear-
ended about 5:20 p.m., on
eastbound U.S. 54 in Calla-
way County.
Kennedy had slowed his car
because of a traffic back-up
caused by a pavement blow-
up near the Center Street exit
in Holts Summit.
Cory M. Nilges, 33, Holts
Summit, was driving the 2011
Hyundai Sonata that hit Ken-
nedy’s car.

“We used to be able to serve
families to a better capacity,”
Nichols said.
When the steep cuts came,
the Russellville PAT reduced
the number of group pro-
The First Chance grant’s
Lend and Learn Play Center
will allow more frequent group
programs to resume.
In addition to a new space
for weekly play groups and
socialization, the center has
been stocked with educational
toys and books, which families
may check out.
“We are excited for our
families,” Nichols said. “We’ve
known for years we haven’t
been giving all that they need;
this changes that.
“We can fully meet needs,
not hit and miss.”
The PAT also is among the
first recipients of the newly
formed Russellville School
Foundation grants.
The second grant helped
finish the play center with
safety items, including gates
and floor mats. And it provided
a comfortable place for nurs-
ing mothers.
“When we bring in infants
and toddlers to the building on
a regular basis, it needs to be
safe for them,” Nichols said.
For many families, the PAT
is their first encounter with the
school district, Nichols said.
“We’re teaching parents
how to prepare children for
school,” Nichols said.
For example, reading readi-
ness is a key for the earliest
grade levels. The PAT encour-
ages parents in ways to model
a love of literacy.
More space and more
resources will help the Parents
as Teacher program continue
its mission.
The center has specialized
areas for infants, gross motor
skills and pretend play.
The PAT program is tar-
geted toward infants to age
3. But the new center is avail-
able through pre-kindergar-
Nichols said she is looking
forward to actively recruiting
new families this fall, some-
thing they haven’t been able to
do much in the past few years.
The boost to the PAT pro-
gram did require relocating
the occupation and physical
therapists, who had shared the
“It’s nice to have twice the
size; we’re glad to have it,”
Nichols said.
Continued from p. 1
current transit administration
“is doing a fine job.”
Businessman Steve Dinolfo
cautioned that, with a heavy
reliance on federal subsidies
— and the U.S. government’s
unpredictable financial future
— “it’s important to look at the
dollars and the efficiency —
where do you draw the line?”
Another man, who said he
relies on buses because he
hasn’t driven a vehicle “for 44
years,” said city leaders, and
Jefftran critics, should “put your
keys in a box for a month, if not
two, and get a ride from a family
member or friend sometimes,
but use the bus the rest of that
time for transportation — then
come back and decide whether
or not we should have transit for
people who do not drive.”
Michelle Scott Huffman,
pastor of the Table of Grace
church, noted transit “is
important to all of us,” but
many in Jefferson City “don’t
feel the trauma that others do
when they hear that transit
might be cut, again.”
Bray said: “We would like
to increase ridership and
increase hours — but the dis-
cussions about that will not
take place, probably, until the
fall,” after the 2013-14 budget
is approved and a conference
center decision is made.
And 3rd Ward Councilman
Bob Scrivner, who sat through
the meeting but didn’t speak
during it, told the News Tri-
bune that transit, like a lot of
issues facing city government,
is a difficult one.
“It’s a balancing act — how
do you provide the services
that people want, and pay for
them at the same time?” he
said. “People will say they want
something — but they’re not
willing to step up and fund it.”
Public works also dominat-
ed the meeting — especially
street and sidewalk repairs.
Although the city tries to
maintain and renovate streets
on a 15-20 year cycle, sever-
al residents said their streets
hadn’t been addressed in 40
years or more.
And, they said, there’s confu-
sion over who repairs sidewalks.
While the city charter makes
the homeowner responsible
for maintenance and repairs,
the city in the past few years
has used sales tax revenues to
improve some sidewalks, and
more are in the planning stages.
One man asked about
crime, and why police aren’t
reacting more quickly.
Jefferson City police Sgt.
Joe Mathern said the depart-
ment investigates complaints
as quickly as possible.
“Often,” he explained, the
department will use plain
clothes or undercover officers
to monitor a crime-related
complaint, and “you won’t
even know we’re there until we
take action.”
Capt. Chuck Walker added,
police are trying to do more with
children, to help them avoid
criminal activities as adults.
“We have to change our
mindset about the way we do
business in our community,”
Walker said.
Henry said he learned
“that community involvement
means everything to us. This
was a good turnout for us
(and) hopefully, the rest of the
council gets on board and has
(similar) meetings.”
Freshman 4th Ward Coun-
cilman Carlos Graham said he
and Carrie Carrol, the other 4th
Ward representative, already
have been talking about a sim-
ilar public meeting.
“I was able to hear some
concerns that constituents
have, and we need to hear
those concerns,” he said after
Saturday’s meeting, “so that we
can keep in the forefront of
what needs to take place, to
move Jefferson City forward, in
a positive direction.”

A fourth man has been
arrested and a juvenile is in
custody as part of a string
of all-terrain vehicle thefts
reported recently to the Calla-
way County Sheriff’s Office.
Deputies reported Caleb
Matthew Debrodie, 19, Fulton,
was arrested at 3:48 a.m. Friday
on felony charges of stealing a
motor vehicle and attempting
to steal a motor vehicle.
After three other Callaway
County men were jailed earlier
in the week on various other
ATV theft charges, Debrodie
was arrested along with previ-
ously arrested Ethan D. Lomas,
18, Fulton, and Dylan S. San-
ford, 19, Tebbetts.
The latest arrest of Debro-
die came in connection with a
reported theft on July 11 of an
ATV from the 9000 block of Plat-
inum Drive in New Bloomfield.
Deputies reported the victim
said someone also tried to start a
second ATV but was unsuccess-
ful. The stolen ATV was recov-
ered later in a creek off State
Road BB in Callaway County.
Debrodie also was arrested
on another stealing charge in
which he, Lomas and a 15-
year-old Fulton juvenile, who
is now in Juvenile Justice Cen-
ter custody in Columbia, are
accused of stealing a cattle
fence charger and a posthole
digger in New Bloomfield on
July 11. Both stolen items have
been recovered by deputies.
The other person arrested
earlier in the week on ATV theft
charges was Joshua A. Sartin,
18, Holts Summit.
Deputies reported the series
of ATV thefts began when they
received a report at 7 a.m. July
11 of an abandoned ATV still
running after a wheel broke
off, disabling the vehicle.
South Callaway Fire Protec-
tion District volunteer firefight-
ers were called to the scene of
an unrelated accident. They
reported to deputies that they
observed two young men riding
ATVs approaching the scene of
the accident. When they saw law
enforcement officers at the acci-
dent scene, they turned around
quickly and attempted to leave
rapidly, but the wheel of one
of the ATVs fell off. The driver
got off the still-running disabled
ATV and hopped on the other
ATV. The two sped away, travel-
ing south on County Road 438.
About 45 minutes later,
deputies received a report of a
burglary on County Road 470
near Mokane. The stolen ATV
was the one that was disabled
on County Road 438.
In the course of the investi-
gation, deputies believe Lomas
was driving the ATV that lost the
wheel and Sanford was driving
the other ATV, a Polaris 500.
Deputies also allege Lomas
stole the ATV and motor fuel from
a farm on County Road 470.
On July 13, deputies received
a report of an ATV found in the
lake at Camp Potawatomi on
Bartley Lane in Fulton.
The owner of the ATV was
identified, who said the ATV
had been stolen from a farm
on County Road 438.
A witness reported seeing
Lomas operating the ATV at
Camp Potawatomi. An inves-
tigation leads deputies to
believe Lomas and Sanford
stole the ATV.
Last Tuesday, deputies
responded to a burglary com-
plaint in Tebbetts. Reported
stolen were two ATVs, motor
fuel in a tank, and a dolly.
Deputies contacted the owner
of a suspicious truck spotted ear-
lier at the scene of the burglary.
The owner of the truck, who was
not arrested, denied any knowl-
edge of the burglary.
Deputies believe all of the
suspects went to the farm in
Tebbetts to steal fuel for the
truck they were using. The sto-
len fuel turned out to be diesel,
which disabled the gasoline-
powered truck found at the
scene of the Tebbetts burglary.
Those arrested in connec-
tion with the Tebbetts theft
include Sartin, Lomas, Sanford
and the 15-year-old juvenile
from Fulton, who is now in
juvenile court custody.
The two stolen ATVs from
the Tebbetts farm were recov-
ered later near County Road
435 south of Fulton.
Three of the four arrested men
have been released on bond.
Lomas was reported in jail Fri-
day evening with his bond set at
$48,000. Debrodie was released
on $14,000 bond; Sartin is out on
$10,000 bond; and Sanford was
released on $14,000 bond.

Hundreds come out
for bike show, to support
vets at annual festival
By Dean Asher
For the News Tribune
MOKANE — Heat and high water couldn’t
keep motorcycle and classic car enthusiasts,
frog leg connoisseurs and supporters of U.S.
troops from turning out in droves for the
eighth annual Frogs and Hogs Festival.
The Amvets and Sons of Amvets Post
No. 153’s annual motorcycle rally and ben-
efit drive saw more than 400 riders and
visitors at its kickoff Friday, with an even
larger crowd beginning to form under the
Amvets pavilion even before heavy rain-
falls tapered off late Saturday morning.
“Last night had a very good turnout
for as hot as it was, and today will be
even bigger,” event organizer and Sons
of Amvets commander Billy Spencer said
Saturday morning from the Amvets deck
overlooking the crowd and bike show.
Spencer helped start the event eight years
ago after Post 153 had grown enough to begin
seeking other ways to support veterans in cen-
tral Missouri. He said they eventually came up
with Frogs and Hogs because “lots of motor-
cycle riders really support the troops.”
In addition to the bike show, Frogs and
Hogs also featured the return of last year’s
classic car show, vendors, music and other
events throughout the weekend. Amvets
served up about 450 pounds of frog legs
and plenty of pulled pork, hamburgers,
hot dogs and sides.
All proceeds from the event — includ-
ing sales on food and drink, shirts and
raffles for liquor and riding gear packages
— go towards various veterans’ support
causes. Bartenders worked for tips, volun-
teering their time for the cause.
Post 153 has adopted the Mexico Veter-
ans Home, provides utility assistance for
former servicemen and women in need,
and supports homeless veterans’ charities.
“We split it up all over, we want all
our proceeds to go towards veterans. The
membership we have are either veterans
or have past family members who were
veterans, so this hits home for us. If you
have family or were a veteran, you really
know what’s going on,” Spencer said.
One patron was Steve Bumgarner, orig-
inally from Oklahoma. A Callaway Energy
Center employee, Bumgarner rode his
chrome Harley-Davidson Screamin’ Eagle
Fat Boy out for a good time.
“I enjoy it,” he said. “It’s a lot of good
folks, good barbecue and you can meet a
few people.”
Despite weather, Frogs and Hogs proves draw

weekend trip to the local farm-
ers market is practically de rigeur
for health-conscious foodies.
Want vaccum-packed, wilted
lettuce shipped from California
or Mexico? Try Aisle 5 at the gro-
cery store. If you prefer — and
can afford — heirloom tomatoes
grown down the road, to market,
to market you shall go.
State and local health depart-
ments generally oversee food
safety at such venues. But when
it comes to ensuring that the
bright leaf lettuce or Autumn
Royal apricots you’re buying are
genuinely local, that verification
is largely up to the individual
markets, if not the honor system.
The challenges of guarantee-
ing authenticity have come to a
head with the ouster of a Colum-
bia Farmers Market vendor who
said he was booted for selling
starter plants that had been pur-
chased at a wholesale produce
market in the Morgan County
town of Versailles but repotted at
his retail garden center.
Chuck Bay, owner of Wil-
son’s Garden Center, called the
market’s rules on such prod-
ucts vague, noting that he has
passed previous inspections
by its board of directors and
operated at the popular mar-
ket for nearly a decade without
incident. Instead, Bay said, the
board resents that he doesn’t
fit its Mom-and-Pop profile
and also sets up shop at a com-
peting farmers market in town
with less restrictive rules.
“They said the plants I was
having to transport into bigger
pots were too far along. They
weren’t young enough,” he said.
“All of them come from
somewhere,” he said, drawing
a distinction between his spe-
cialty annual plants and home-
grown produce. “It’s unrealistic
to think that all plants are going
to be started from seed. They’re
just not available that way.”
Some of Bay’s former counter-
parts beg to differ. Abby Schultz,
vice president of the seven-per-
son board at the grower-run mar-
ket and its former manager, said
the rules are clear: agricultural
products sold at the market must
be grown within a 55-mile radius,
and, as the market’s website states
under the title “What Can Be
Sold,” all bedding plants and pot-
ted plants must be grown from
“seed, plug, cutting, bulbs or bare
root, and be well established in its
current container ... No resale of
pre-finished plant is allowed.”
Local tag debated in
Columbia farmers market flap
year-old holdup in a national
effort to create thousands of
acres of shallow-water Mis-
souri River habitat to help an
endangered fish species has
been resolved.
The U.S. Army Corps of Engi-
neers announced this month
that it awarded a $3.5 million
contract for construction of a
shallow-water project at James-
on Island near the village of
Arrow Rock in mid-Missouri. A
debate over what to do with the
dirt excavated to create the new
habitat had stalled that project
and other ones like it in the
state, putting a national effort
to provide a refuge for young
pallid sturgeon and other native
species far behind schedule.
At issue is the corps’ effort
to recreate about 20,000 acres
of slow-moving shallow-water
habitat — about 20 percent
of the approximately 100,000
acres of shallow-water habitat
that disappeared when the river
was dammed and straightened
and its channel narrowed. The
U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service
ordered the corps to under-
take the habitat effort because,
while changes to the river aided
navigation and improved flood
protection, the pallid sturgeon
population has dwindled. That
puts at risk the future of a dino-
saur-era relic that can live more
than 50 years and weigh up to
80 pounds.
Controversy arose because
the corps wants to put much of
the excavated dirt into the river,
noting that before the upstream
dams and reservoirs were built
the Missouri River was about
five times muddier than it is
today. Farm groups feared that
putting the fertilizer-laden soil
into the river would contribute
to a “dead zone” in the Gulf of
Mexico. Experts blame the low-
oxygen, or hypoxic, conditions
primarily on farm fertilizer
runoff brought by the Missis-
sippi River, into which the Mis-
souri empties. The nutrients
cause oxygen depleting algae
blooms, and farmers often get
the blame.
However, proponents,
including the corps and
environmental groups, say
researchers have determined
the soil dumping won’t cause
trouble and note the pallid
sturgeon evolved to live in
large silt-filled rivers.
Nearly 60 percent of the
new shallow-water habitat —
or 12,000 acres — is supposed
to be built in Missouri, where
the 2,341-mile river cuts a 543-
mile path. But as a result of the
debate, only about 3,500 acres
of shallow-water habitat have
been constructed so far. Much
of it has been built in Kan-
sas, Nebraska and Iowa, where
there haven’t been objections.

GULLANE, Scotland (AP) — Lee
Westwood has contended enough in the
majors that he can identify important
moments, even if he could barely see
his ball.
He had a one-
shot lead over
Tiger Woods,
standing in grass
up to his knees
in the dunes left
of the par-3 16th
hole. It was one of
the few bad shots
Westwood hit
Saturday at Muir-
field, and by far
his worst predica-
ment. Westwood
slashed at the ball
and it didn’t reach
the green. He used
a putter to belt his
next shot up the
hill to 12 feet.
What followed
was a finish that
allowed him to
believe he was
closer than ever
to ending his 20-
year pursuit of a major.
Westwood poured in the putt to sal-
vage bogey. He picked up two shots on
Woods with a birdie on the next hole.
He closed with a solid par, giving him
a two-shot lead going into the final
round, and most significant Sunday of
his career.
“That was prob-
ably the biggest
momentum thing I
did all day — walk
off there with a
bogey,” Westwood
said. “That’s what’s
been missing, mak-
ing those putts. And
back it up with a
birdie at the next.
Those are the sort
of things you need
to do.”
Had he made
putts like that,
Westwood might
not have missed the
playoff at the U.S.
Open that Woods
won in 2008 at Tor-
rey Pines. Or the
playoff at Turnberry
in 2009. He might
even have been
able to hold off Phil
Mickelson at the Masters in 2010.

best player of his generation without a

SEC’s new coaches encounter
pressure, expectations
HOOVER, Ala. (AP) — Auburn coach Gus
Malzahn spent part of his first turn at South-
eastern Conference media days calling concerns
about the hurry-up offense causing more inju-
ries “a joke.”
A few hours later, Arkansas coach Bret Bielema
delivered a rebuttal. He’s not a comedian, he
said. He just wants “normal American football.”
Welcome to the SEC, fellas. You’ll fit in just
The coaching churn was heavy in the SEC
during the offseason and now four new faces
make their debut this fall. Bielema, Malzahn,
Kentucky’s Mark Stoops and Tennessee’s Butch
Jones inherit vastly different circumstances at
their respective schools and have different styles,
but all will be judged by the same stark standard:
wins and losses in the cutthroat conference.
Jones, who came to Tennessee after a success-
ful stint at Cincinnati, said he’s asked constantly
about the transition to a conference that’s won
the past seven BCS national titles.
“The best analogy I can give you is every day
in the SEC is like fourth-and-one for the national
championship,” Jones said. “It doesn’t matter if
it’s practice, recruiting or game time, which I’ll
experience soon. ... The competitive structure of
this football conference, the difference between
winning and losing is very slim.”
And the margin for patience might be even
The SEC is the land of big egos, big stadiums
and even bigger football budgets, and the four
coaches — who have agreed to contracts worth
about a combined $60 million — have quickly
tried to mark their territory.
The Bielema vs. Malzahn dustup was a good
example. Those two teams will meet Nov. 2.

in the SEC and, in fact, it’s demanded. Missis-

Difficult conditions needed
to find best in a major
Stop me if you’ve heard this before,
but professional golfers came together
for a major tournament and ... whining
I know it’s not exactly newsworthy, as
this sort of thing happens all the time,
but that’s the point. This sort of thing
happens all the time. And it’s got to stop.
I realize the British Open, which wraps
up today, has been a stiff test over the
past four days for those good enough to
play in it. Still, that’s the key — those tak-
ing part are only the ones good enough
to be playing in it. As such, they’re the
best of the best. But so far, the only thing
they’re the best at is complaining.
During the last
week or so, numer-
ous members in
the field have com-
plained about a vari-
ety of things. Let’s
address a few, with
the biggest being
Muirfield Golf Club
seems to be a bit
hard this week.
Wait a minute.
A golf course might
actually be dried out
during the summer? I’m shocked. (That’s
sarcasm, in case it isn’t coming through
loud and clear.) Could the grounds crew
at Muirfield water the course a bit more?
Sure. Should they? I’m not so sure.
Therein lies the biggest problem in
the whole scenario. Pro golfers have been
coddled for so long they have no idea
what it’s like to play anything but the
top 1 percent of all courses in the world.
Yes, a top-flight tournament deserves a
top-flight course. But even with “flaws,”
what they’re playing right now is still
better than 99 percent of anything else
out there.
I understand almost everyone in the
Open played all sorts of courses when
they were younger, but they’ve forgotten
what it’s like to play those less-than-per-
fect ones. If a pro wants to see a really
“tough lie,” I’d welcome them to come
out and play any of a number of courses
around the midwest in a month or so
when the scorching summer has had a
chance to dry out the fairways. Have fun
trying to take a divot on the hardpan that
passes for a fairway during drought-like
conditions, or finding a clean lie when
it’s hard to find more than three blades
of grass next to each other. Show me how
well you play on that, and then I might
be truly impressed.
With the dry conditions at Muirfield,
a complaint seems to be balls are getting
“too much roll.” You know what some
of us regular golfers call that? A bonus.
Most hackers would love to add 80-100
yards on all our drives. I for one would
welcome the troubles that come with
being longer off the tee.
Besides, you would think “the best in
the world” would be the best at adapting
to conditions. But apparently these golf-
ers want things how they want them, and
if they don’t get it, the only recourse is to
Among the other complaints were
the greens were too fast and pin loca-
tions on those greens were too tricky.
You would think guys who’ve been at it
this long would know tournament offi-
cials are going to do things like that. I’ve
never played in one of golf’s major tour-
naments, but I can guarantee you two
things before it starts — the greens will
be fast and hole locations will be tough.
If you don’t know that, you’re not paying
Phil Mickelson even had the nerve
to complain about the par-3 third hole
playing at 274 yards, saying, “You can’t
even reach it.” Maybe, if you’re me, a
274-yard par-3 is a stretch. But again,
these are professionals, and that’s not
too much to ask. The fact Phil, who I
normally like, would whine about it just
makes him sound childish.
While some rain might have softened
up the course if they had gotten any,
you can rest assured someone would be
having a hissy fit about having to playing
when it’s wet. And they haven’t even had
to contend with much wind, which is
normally a common part of the British
Open experience.
Perhaps it’s time to just shut up and
play, because I’ll bet whoever comes
out on top today won’t have complained
much this week. He was too busy taking
care of business.

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Edinson Volquez was bailed out
by his bullpen and earned the victory in San Diego’s 5-3
win against the St. Louis Cardinals on Saturday night.
Nick Vincent, Dale Thayer, Luke Gregorson and
Huston Street worked an inning apiece after Volquez

With hurt hamstring
ST. LOUIS (AP) — The St.
Louis Cardinals are making the
best of the All-Star break with
outfielder Matt Holliday, who
they believe just needs a little
more time to recover from a
strained hamstring.
Holliday was placed on the
15-day disabled list Saturday,
retroactive to July 12. The No. 3
hitter had already missed four
games after getting hurt run-
ning to first July 11 at Chicago.
“It was that missing 10-20
percent where he still felt a lit-
tle something,” manager Mike
Matheny said. “We just had
too many things going in our
favor, all the time that’s already
passed, the break, a day off on
The team purchased the
contract of first baseman/
outfielder Brock Peterson, a
Pacific Coast League All-Star at
Triple-A Memphis, in time for
Saturday night’s game. The 29-
year-old Peterson was batting
.306 and led the PCL with 22
homers to go with 66 RBI in 93
games at Memphis and is mak-
ing his major league debut.
Cardinals place Holliday on DL
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Even the sea gulls are throwing the
struggling San Francisco Giants for a loss this year.
Giants officials trying to find humane solution to the worsen-
ing onslaught of the birds at home games are stumped, the San
Jose Mercury News reported Saturday.
The gulls have routinely showed up at the end of night games
since the park along San Francisco Bay opened in 2000. But
it appears an increasing number of birds are crashing
night games this year, bothering players, workers
and fans alike.
A national television audience witnessed a
massive swarm in March during the World
Baseball Classic semifinal between
the Netherlands and the Dominican
Republic, and similar invasions have
occurred throughout the year.
Hundreds of gulls sometimes
land on the field during play.
They also defecate on fans and
create cleanup headaches for
Giants shortstop Brandon
Crawford said batters are well
aware of the birds.
“You’re focused on the
pitcher,” he said. “But you def-
initely notice them.”
Biologists said they don’t
know how the sea gulls time
their arrival for the end of games
to feast on discarded hot dogs,
popcorn and other food.
“They are incredibly intelligent
animals,” said biologist Russ Brad-
ley, a sea gull specialist. “Unless you
want to build a dome, there’s no easy
The gulls disappeared late in the 2011
season when a red-tailed hawk nicknamed
“Bruce Lee” began frequenting the park. But
when the hawk disappeared, the gulls returned.
Federal law prohibits shooting the birds, and hiring a fal-
coner to scare them away would cost $8,000 a game, said Jorge
Costa, the Giants’ manager of operations. The Giants are also
concerned a falcon could gruesomely kill a sea gull in front of
families and a television audience, Costa said.
“It’s an issue we are taking seriously,” Costa said. “But it’s
delicate. You don’t want to
get to the point where
you do anything
that looks

ninth to collect his 24th save in 26 chanc-
es, although he yielded a one-out double
to Victor Martinez.
Prince Fielder and Martinez stroked
RBI singles in the first as the Tigers jumped
out to a 2-0 lead.
The Royals seized a 5-3 lead in the
fourth when Chris Getz brought home a
run with a fielder’s choice grounder, while
Verlander walked Eric Hosmer with the
bases loaded.
Avila drove in two runs with a two-out
fifth inning single to tie the score at 5.
Getz, who was recalled Friday from Tri-
ple-A Omaha, suffered a mild medial strain
of his left knee in the fifth inning while try-
ing to field Fielder’s smash grounder. He
was replaced by Elliot Johnson.
Notes: Royals RHP Felipe Paulino, who
threw a 45-pitch bullpen session, is sched-
uled to throw a two-inning simulated
game Monday. Paulino, who remains on
the disabled list after having Tommy John
surgery last year, said the elbow is fine, but
he has been setback by a sore shoulder.
... RHP James Shields, who starts today,
has only one home victory in nine starts
this season. He is 1-3 with a 3.75 ERA. The
Tigers will counter with RHP Doug Fister
(7-5, 4.02).

The Padres had nine base
runners the first three innings
while taking a 4-0 lead, scor-
ing twice in the third on a
run-scoring wild pitch on a 2-
2 pitch against Hundley fol-
lowed by Hundley’s broken-bat
infield hit.
Volquez retired the first nine
batters in order, then allowed
three runs on four hits, two
walks and two wild pitches in
the fourth and fifth. He lost his
previous two starts and hasn’t
lasted longer than 5 1-3 innings
his last three outings.
Lynn has been an 11-game
winner prior to the All-Star
break both years in the St.
Louis rotation, benefiting this
year from an offense averaging
nearly six runs per start. He’s
been out of sync lately, giving
up 10 runs in 9

two starts.

Westwood: Second time he’s held 54-hole lead at major
major. Maybe that’s about to
The 40-year-old from Eng-
land passed one big test when
he outplayed Woods on anoth-
er tough day at Muirfield for
a 1-under 70 and grabbed a
two-shot lead over Woods and
Hunter Mahan, the only play-
ers still under par.
“Even though I haven’t won
a major, I know what it takes to
win one,” said Westwood, who
was at 3-under 210. “It’s just a
case of going out there (today)
and having the confidence in
my game, which I’ve got. And
putting it to the test.”
Today figures to be the
toughest test of all.
Despite his late blunder by
hitting into a bunker and mak-
ing bogey on the par-5 17th,
Woods held it together for a 72.
Mahan matched the best score
of the third round with a 68
and will play in the final group
for the second straight major.
“I’ve got 14 of these things,
and I know what it takes to win
it,” Woods said. “He’s won tour-
naments all over the world. He
knows how to win golf tourna-
ments. He’s two shots ahead
and we’re going to go out there
and both compete and play. It’s
not just us two. There’s a bunch
of guys who have a chance to
win this tournament. And all
of us need to really play well
(today) to win it.”
Westwood is the 54-hole
leader for the second time in
his career. He will try to become
only the eighth player dating to
1861 to capture his first major
in his 40s. He was hopeful the
other close calls will serve him
well, though the 40-year-old
from England didn’t seem all
that uptight about it.
“I’m hoping it’s going to
turn out differently because I
haven’t won one yet and I’d like
to win one,” Westwood said.
“But what can you do? You can
only do what you think is right
and put all that practice and
hard work you’ve done tomor-
row, try not to get in your own
way mentally and just focus
on the job at hand and believe
you’re good enough.”
He was plenty good on
another warm, sunny after-
noon on a course that was
noticeable softer but no less
Woods lost his chance to
get in the final group with one
Tied with Westwood as they
played the par-5 17th into a stiff
breeze off the Firth of Forth,
Woods tried to hit 3-wood over
a series of bunkers to allow for
a simple wedge into the green.
With his ball on the slightest
slope, he got it up in the air just
enough that the wind grabbed
it and deposited the ball in the
bunker. Woods had to blast out
sideways and missed a 15-foot
par putt.
Woods twice had at least
a share of the 36-hole lead in
majors a year ago and fell out
of contention on Saturday.
Despite the late bogey, he did
well enough this time that he
was only two shots behind.
This is his best chance to end
his five-year drought in the
majors since the upheaval in
his personal life at the end of
And while he has never won
a major when trailing going
into the last day, the outlook
didn’t look bleak from his van-
tage point.
“I’m only two back,” Woods
said. “There’s only one guy
ahead of me.”
Instead of playing with
Westwood in the final group,
Woods will be in the penul-
timate group with Masters
champion Adam Scott, who
had a 70. The Australian not

Scott said. “So it’s a different
Mahan made only two
bogeys, and he avoided a third
on the final hole when he made
a 25-foot putt to save par from
the bunker. He played with
Mickelson in the final round at
Merion and stayed in the game
until late in the round, closing
with a 75. One month later, he
gets another crack at it.
And there are plenty of oth-
ers still in the game — five
major champions within five
shots of the lead, a list that
goes down to Mickelson at five
shots behind.
Two-time major champion
Angel Cabrera opened with 12
pars and had a roller-coaster
finish — double bogey, birdie,
bogey — for a 73. He was at
1-over 214, along with former
Masters champion Zach John-
son (73), Henrik Stenson (74)
and Ryan Moore (72).
But it starts with Westwood,
who can add to the British cel-
ebration of sport by captur-
ing his first major. He certainly
looked up to the task over 18
holes in the third round, and
he didn’t seem the least bit
uptight when asked to think
about what was at stake today.
“I’m not in a high-pressure
situation because I’m going
to go have dinner, and I’m so
good with a knife and fork now
that I don’t feel any pressure at
all,” he said, trying to keep the
mood light.
He sees nothing wrong with
imagining his name on the
base of the claret jug, ending all
those questions about whether
he has the game and guts to
win a major. But when he steps
to the first tee today, it’s all
about finding the short, yellow
grass carved out of rough that
looks like a Kansas wheat field.
“I should be in the same
frame of mind as I was today,”
Westwood said. “I didn’t feel
any pressure today — felt nice
and calm out there and in con-
trol of what I was doing.”
Miguel Angel Jimenez didn’t
lose control. He just lost the
The 49-year-old Spaniard
found too many bunkers,
missed too many fairways and
dropped far too many shots.
He wound up with a 77, six
shots behind.
Woods was never far from
the lead, even during four two-
shot swings involving West-
The first one came on the
par-5 fifth hole. Woods proved
there was a driver under that
tiger head cover by smashing
his tee shot down the fairway,
though he wound up miss-
ing a 6-foot birdie putt, while
Westwood rolled in a 50-foot
eagle putt from just short of
the green.
Westwood hit a high shot
that settled 4 feet from the
cup at the par-3 seventh while
Woods hammered a 9-iron
through the green and made
bogey. Westwood led by as
many as three shots, but they
were tied at the turn when
Westwood found a bunker of
the tee and made bogey, while
Woods had a simple up-and-
down for birdie.
The last three holes changed
everything — a bogey that
could have been much worse,
a birdie to build a cushion, a
par for confidence.

Mahan fights back
to claim spot
in final pairing
GULLANE, Scotland (AP)
— After his disappointing fade
down the stretch of the U.S.
Open, Hunter Mahan guaran-
teed he’d be ready the next
time he went off in the final
pair on the last day of a major.
He won’t have to wait long
to prove it.
The Texan left the British
Open late Saturday afternoon
as one of only three golfers
with a red number alongside
his name, a good measure of
how Muirfield has manhan-
dled the world’s best. Mahan’s
3-under 68 was tied for best
round of the day, and left him
two strokes behind third-
round leader and today’s play-
ing partner Lee Westwood.
Just a month ago, Mahan
found himself in last group
with Phil Mickelson at Merion
Golf Club, another demanding
layout where he strung togeth-
er one tough par after another,
only to fall out of contention
with a double-bogey at the
15th. He finished tied for fifth
and said at the time that expe-
rience wouldn’t go to waste.
“Does it help?” Mahan
said. “I think it does. Because
I think it can be overwhelm-
ing at times. Being in the first
or second, last groups there,
to have everybody following
you and seeing all the scores
and everything, it can be over-
Mahan called his third
round here, following back-
to-back 72s, a “team effort.”
By that he meant nearly every
part of his game was clicking.
But considering he ranks near
the middle of the pack in find-
ing fairways and greens here,
it’s been the shorter clubs —
the putter and wedges — that
have done most of the heavy
He’s tied for the lead in bird-
ies with 13, and his play around
the greens has been strictly top
10. His first two birdies of the
day provided a good illustra-
tion: At No. 1, he hit a wedge
into a foot; at No. 2, he rolled
in a 50-foooter.
To some extent, Mahan is
still remembered over here for
losing the final singles match
in the 2010 Ryder Cup, after
asking to have the pressure of
the anchor spot put squarely
on his shoulders. It wound up
deciding the cup and left him
in tears.
Never mind Mahan was one
of the stars of the U.S. cup vic-
tory in 2008, going unbeaten
in all five of his matches as a
rookie. So perhaps he shouldn’t
have been surprised by a ques-
tion here about what’s kept
him from “closing the deal” in
the biggest events.
“Not being good enough, I
guess,” he replied. “My short
game hasn’t probably been as
strong as it needed to be.”
Yet his play this week, not to
mention the confidence that’s
instilled in Mahan, suggested
this time could be different.
“But I’m chipping and put-
ting, I think, great and doing all
the right things. So I feel com-
fortable ... with my game and
excited about the opportunity
to go out there, trust it and let
it happen.”
Chance to see what he learned

British Open at Muirfield Golf Club.
Second-round leader Miguel Angel Jimenez plays out of a

“I wasn’t patient and that

Texas A&M’s Kevin Sumlin
and Vanderbilt’s James Frank-
lin have vastly improved their
programs despite being on the
job for three years or less.
Bielema, 43, might be the
SEC’s most intriguing hire. The
Razorbacks pried him away
from Wisconsin after a suc-
cessful seven-year run with the
In some ways, it was a strange
move. The square-jawed, wide-
shouldered Midwestern man
is almost the antithesis of the
SEC and seemed a perfect fit
for the Big Ten.
His power offense is almost
a complete 180 from former
coach Bobby Petrino’s air-it-
out philosophy and he has vir-
tually no experience recruiting
in the areas that are normally
fertile for the Razorbacks, like
Texas and Oklahoma.
But as his passionate display
at media days showed, Bielema
will not be intimidated.
“This team has all the ingre-
dients as a head coach that
can make teams win,” Bielema
said. “I haven’t been through an
SEC schedule, through the sta-
diums, I haven’t been through
an away-game schedule quite
like the one we face. I do know
this: We have a team that’s very
hungry, a group of coaches that
are very gifted, we have a staff
that is very talented and a lot of
years to back that up.”
While Bielema is decidedly
old school, Malzahn represents
what’s new in college football.
The 47-year-old has had a
quick rise through the coach-
ing ranks, achieving stardom
when he helped develop an
offense at Auburn that utilized
quarterback Cam Newton and
led the Tigers to a national title
in 2010.
His hurry-up, no-huddle
approach is getting popular in
the SEC — Freeze and Sumlin
are also devoted disciples of
that offense.
And Malzahn plans on win-
ning quickly at a place not
known for patience. The previ-
ous coach, Gene Chizik, was
fired just two years after win-
ning that 2010 national cham-
“I think when you take a
head job, you know exactly
what you’re getting into,” Mal-
zahn said. “You’ve got to be
prepared. You have to have a
plan. The bottom line is you
have to be successful. I think
all coaches — especially in this
league — understand that.”
The 45-year-old Jones takes
over a proud Tennessee pro-
gram that’s fallen on hard times
over the past five seasons.
Jones’ main task has been
providing some stability. The
Volunteers have had four dif-
ferent coaches over the past six
Tennessee desperately
needs to win some football
games — and not simply
because of pride. The athletic
department has had money
problems of late, which the
school attributes to three con-
secutive losing seasons in foot-
ball, and a decline in ticket
sales and donations.
The 46-year-old Stoops
takes over a Kentucky program
that has struggled to maintain
sustained success. The previ-
ous coach, Joker Phillips, last-
ed just three seasons.
Stoops, the brother of Okla-
homa head coach Bob Stoops,
had a successful run as the
defensive coordinator at Flor-
ida State under Jimbo Fisher
before taking the Kentucky
job. He’s also caused a stir on
the recruiting trail, picking up
commitments from several
high-profile players.
At a school known for its
basketball program, that’s no
small feat.
“We have to get better in all
areas of our program,” Stoops
said. “We have to continue to
build more depth. But what
that being said, it’s our job to
develop the players that we
have, to put them in a position
to be successful, and to go out
there and compete each and
every week.”

Coaches: Bringing differing philosophies to the conference
(Clockwise, from top left) Bret Bielema of Arkansas, Butch Jones of Tennessee, Gus Malzahn of Auburn and Mark
Stoops of Kentucky are entering their first seasons as head football coaches in the SEC.
Bowlsby wraps up
first year with Big 12
IRVING, Texas (AP) — Bob
Bowlsby was only a few weeks
into his new job as Big 12 com-
missioner when at the league’s
football media days last July he
kept repeating the same thing
to all who would listen.
“Our message was we’re
stable, we’re strong and we’re
successful,” Bowlsby recalled
a year later. “Those were the
three watch words. ... I uttered
them a whole bunch of times.”
Bowlsby won’t have to work
too hard to convince people of
that when he takes the podium
Monday at a downtown Dallas
hotel to kick off this year’s foot-
ball media days.
The league’s 10 schools
shared a record $198 million in
revenue for the 2012-13 school
year, a total that could easily
double because of a new TV
deal and a Sugar Bowl partner-
ship with the powerhouse SEC.
Nine of 10 teams went to bowl
games, making the Big 12 the
first league ever to send 90 per-
cent of its teams to the post-
season in the same season.
“This year, I think people
know that we are those three
things, and I think the mes-
sage is we’re looking forward,”
Bowlsby said. “We’re excited
about the future, we’re all
about winning national cham-
pionships, and we’re going to
do what we need to try and
make all the boats rise.”
No longer is the Big 12 just
trying to survive, like it was
during the seismic shifts of
conference affiliation in previ-
ous summers when the league
lost four schools and added
two others to settle into its 10-
team configuration.
Bowlsby, the former Stan-
ford and Iowa athletic director,
acknowledged much of what
has been accomplished in his
first year leading the Big 12
was the result of things that
were already in motion when
he got there. That included the
framework of the $2.6-billion
TV deal with ESPN and Fox
Sports that goes through 2024-
25 with each school granting
its TV rights to the league.
“We got done the things
that needed to be done in the
first year, most of them were
previously started,” Bowlsby
said. “This year may be a little
more ground-level logistics
and tactical things, as opposed
to some of the high-level things
we had to deal with.”
This time, it’s putting the
finishing details on items such
as potential scheduling alli-
ances with other leagues that
would include neutral-site
games, the Sugar Bowl setup
that begins with the 2014 sea-
son and their bowl lineup in
the post-BCS era.
The Big 12 is also hosting
college basketball’s biggest
event, with the NCAA Final
Four at Cowboys Stadium next
Among items on Bowlsby’s
agenda is a branding initiative
to build a national identity for
the 10-team league known as
the Big 12.
“One of the reasons we’ve
decided to go forward with it
is because we wanted to put
a stake in the ground. We’re
here for the long haul ... we
have members in perpetu-
ity,” Bowlsby said. “There isn’t
any belief that there are deci-
sion-times coming up where
you have to decide to be in
the league or not be in the
That wasn’t necessarily
the case when the Big 12 was
planning a similar branding
campaign a couple years ago
before Bowlsby arrived. Then
came talk about Texas A&M’s
possible departure from the
league, and the Aggies then
moving to the SEC with Mis-
While Bowlsby expects the
Big 12 to get stronger, that
doesn’t mean getting bigger.
Without being prompted,
Bowlsby said he believes the
current conference members
consider 10 schools “as the
right number for us.” That
comes at a time when all the
other power conferences have
12-14 teams.
The eight continuing mem-
bers of the Big 12 — Baylor,
Iowa State, Kansas, Kansas
State, Oklahoma, Oklahoma
State, Texas and Texas Tech
— each got about $22 million
from revenue. While newcom-
ers TCU and West Virginia got
half-shares of about $11 mil-
lion for their first year in the
Big 12, that was more than
either got in their old leagues.
Confirmed his message
Bob Bowlsby has had a successful first year as commis-
sioner of the Big 12.

Boat launch
etiquette important
to follow
If you’ve ever been to a busy
boat launch on a hot summer
weekend, then there is a good
chance you have experienced
the ill effects of someone who
is either ignorant of proper
boat launch etiquette, or is
simply rude.
I tend to always believe it
is the first, but am sure it is on
occasion the latter. The first
can thankfully be remedied,
the latter not so much.
B o a t
launch eti-
quette is
pretty sim-
ple. In fact,
it really
c o m e s
down to
one word
— hurry. If
there a lot
of people
in line to
access the ramp for either put-
ting their boat in or taking it
out, the last thing they want
to do is wait on you while you
take your sweet time securing
your vessel and all of its acces-
When you are launching
your boat, back your trailer
down to the water’s edge and
let a driver hop in the boat.
Back the trailer into the water
until the boat slides off and
pull up and off the ramp while
the driver maneuvers the boat
to a dock or another place
where you and the rest of your
passengers can get onboard.
When pulling your boat
from the water, you will ide-
ally have someone in the boat
to drive it onto the trailer. You
back down into the water, they
pull the boat on the trailer,
and you pull them out and up
into the parking lot where you
will then secure the boat with
straps. None of this needs to
be done on the ramp.
Now, of course, there will
be times when you are going
out in the boat on your own
and a driver for launching and
trailering isn’t available. For
this, you again need to revert
to rule No. 1 — hurry. Just do
your best to get the boat off or
on the trailer in the timeliest
manner possible.
The launch ramp is a great
place to make friends. If you
see someone who is launch-
ing or trailering alone, offer to
help. I know I would appreciate
such a gesture, and chances
are you would too. If you’re a
fisherman and they obviously
are as well, then while you’re
helping is a great time to chat
about what’s working or where
the fish are biting. You never
know what sort of knowledge
a stranger you’re out helping
might clue you into.
Another aspect of boat
launch etiquette is keeping the
ramp as clean as possible. I
can’t tell you how many piles
of beers cans I’ve picked up
over the years that folks have
dumped out in the parking lot
after realizing they had better
not drive home with a cooler
full of evidence. Please put all
your trash in a proper trash
receptacle. If there isn’t one
nearby, then take your trash
home with you, or to the near-
est trash can. And if you do
come across an unfortunate
pile of trash, be the bigger per-
son and pick it up. Litter ruins
outdoor experiences for all
who must endure it.
Boat launch etiquette is
pretty simple. Like most things
it life it simply comes down to
treating people the way you’d
like to be treated. Hurry up,
help out and keep the ramp
See you down the trail …

Froome effectively
wins Tour de France
(AP) — Chris Froome has two
hands firmly on the Tour de
France trophy. All that remains
is for the British rider to raise it
above his head before cheering
crowds today in Paris.
The Team Sky rider retained
his big race lead Saturday
in the penultimate stage to
ensure he will become Britain’s
second successive champion
after Bradley Wiggins.
Only an accident or other
freak mishap today on the
largely ceremonial final ride
to the Champs-Elysees could
stop Froome from winning the
100th Tour.
“It’s been an amazing jour-
ney for me, the race has been a
fight every single day,” Froome
said at the winner’s news con-
ference which the Tour holds
the evening before the final
“This Tour really has had
everything. It really has been a
special edition this year.”
Froome, who was clearly
superior and never looked real-
ly troubled in the three-week
race, finished third Saturday in
a dramatic Stage 20 to the ski
station of Annecy-Semnoz in
the Alps that decided the other
podium placings.
Nairo Quintana from
Colombia won the stage and
moved up to second overall.
Joaquim Rodriguez from
Spain rode in 18 seconds
behind Quintana and moved
up to third overall.
Froome’s lead is more than
five minutes over both of
Froome said only when he
passed the sign showing two
kilometers (about a mile) to go
on the final steep uphill did he
allow himself to believe he’d
won the Tour.
“It actually became quite
hard to concentrate,” he said.
“A very emotional feeling.”
Alberto Contador, who was
second overall at the start of
the day, struggled on that climb
and dropped off the podium.
Saturday’s 78-mile trek was
the last of four successive stag-
es in the Alps and the final
significant obstacle Froome
needed to overcome before
today’s usually relaxed ride to
the finish in Paris. That 82-mile
jaunt starts in Versailles, at the
gates of its palace.
Froome’s dominance at this
Tour was such that this victory
could very well be the first of
several. At 28, he is entering
peak years for a bike racer. He
proved at this Tour he excels
both in climbs and time trials
— skills essential for those who
want to win cycling’s premier
race. He also handled with
poise and aplomb questions
about doping in cycling and
suspicions about the strength
of his own performances. He
insisted he raced clean.
This Tour was the first since
Lance Armstrong was stripped
last year of his seven wins for
serial doping. Froome said the
scrutiny he faced has “definite-
ly been a challenge” but was
“100 percent understandable.”
Whoever won this 100th
Tour “was going to come under
the same amount of scrutiny,
the same amount of criticism,”
he said.
“I’m also one of those guys
who have been let down by the
Froome first took the race
lead and the yellow jersey that
goes with it on Stage 8, when
he won the climb to the Ax-3
Domaines ski station in the
Pyrenees. On today’s Stage 21,
he will wear the yellow jersey
for the 13th straight day.
Froome said the low point
of his Tour was when he ran
short of energy on the second
ascent of L’Alpe d’Huez this
“A horrible feeling,” he said.
The highlight, he said, was
when he powered away from
his rivals on Mont Ventoux in
Provence and became the first
yellow-jersey wearer to win a
stage on that mammoth climb
since the legendary five-time
Tour winner Eddy Merckx in
“That was an incredible
moment, incredible.”
Saturday’s stage did a big
loop south of Annecy, through
the mountains of Savoie
between the lakes of Annecy
and Bourget. This is cheese-
making country, with lush
Alpine pastures and dense,
naturally cool forests.
Quintana’s win also secured
him the spotted jersey awarded
to riders who harvest the most
points on mountain climbs. He
also retained the white jersey
as the Tour’s best young rider.
The 23-year-old wiped away
tears in his stage winner’s news
“It was fabulous,” he said
after winning on his national
independence day. “It’s a very
special day in Colombia. A big
party and the whole of Colom-
bia is celebrating.”
With six miles still to ascend
on the last and toughest of the
day’s six climbs, Froome put
on a devastating turn of speed
that left Contador gasping.
Froome, Rodriguez and Quin-
tana then rode as a trio, leaving
Contador further and further
behind. Quintana rode away
in the last stretch for his first
stage win at his first Tour.
Contador placed seventh in
the stage, laboring in more than
two minutes behind Quintana.
The two-time former champ
ran out of legs after weeks of
trying to keep up and pressure
Froome. He dropped to fourth
overall, more than seven min-
utes behind the Briton who
was born in Kenya and who
hopes his win will inspire Afri-
can cyclists to believe that they,
too, can turn professional.
Of the 198 riders who started
on the French island of Corsica
on June 29, 170 have survived
this far — meaning they could
equal the Tour’s record for fin-
ishers, also 170, achieved in
Uniquely for the 100th Tour,
Stage 21 will set off in the late
afternoon, so the race finishes
more or less as the sun is set-
ting behind the Arc de Triom-
“The arrival on the Champs-
Elysees will be immense,”
Froome said.
Froome said he didn’t know
how many more Tours he
might win because “I’m just
thinking about here and now”
but he added he would like to
keep coming back to the Tour
“as long as I can.”
Froome was runner-up last
year, helping Wiggins to vic-
tory. Despite that, Froome said
his teammate hasn’t contacted
him during this Tour.
Title all but wrapped up
Christopher Froome, wearing the overall leader’s yellow jersey, flashes a thumbs up and a big smile as crosses the fin-
ish of Saturday’s 20th stage of the Tour de France.

Holden plays full game
in recovery process
By the Associated Press
Ninety minutes.
That’s how long any soccer player
who starts a game expects to be on
the field. For Stuart Holden, playing a
full match had become anything but
The midfielder who has fought a
severe knee injury for 2
⁄2 years finally
got in a full 90 for the first time since
September 2011 on Tuesday when the
United States beat Costa Rica 1-0 in
the CONCACAF Gold Cup. He played
well enough, although he wasn’t much
of a factor as the Americans won their
eighth straight match for the first time
Still, just being able to go the dis-
tance was a major achievement for
the 27-year-old Holden, who plays for
Bolton in England’s second-tier League
Championship and was a member of
the 2010 U.S. World Cup squad.
“That was my first 90 in an official
game, and it felt great,” he said. “I still
had plenty of gas in the tank at the end,
and it’s something you wonder about
until you play the full match.
“I want to play every minute of
every game. I thought I had a pretty
good game and contributed in differ-
ent ways.”
Holden’s recent history has been a
painful one. He broke his right leg on a
vicious tackle by the Netherlands’ Nigel
de Jong in March 2010. He hurt his left
knee against Manchester United from a
Jonny Evans tackle a year later. Holden
returned from surgery for a League Cup
match against Aston Villa that Septem-
ber, then needed more surgery eight
days later.
He was out until January of this year,
returning for three substitute appear-
ances for Bolton, then four starts dur-
ing a one-month loan to Sheffield
Wednesday and another last-minute
cameo for Bolton.
“I’ve been dealing with injuries and
now it’s over and I have been moving
on,” Holden said. “I want to be at my
best as soon as I can, but if I am at 90
percent, I will give everything I have.
“Playing soccer again, being on the
team and around the guys, it’s what I
have been working for.”
Any hopes of making another World
Cup team depend not only on Holden
getting and staying healthy, but making
an impression on coach Jurgen Klins-
mann and his staff.
Klinsmann has been using the Gold
Cup to look at veterans such as Landon
Donovan, Oguchi Onyewu and DaMar-
cus Beasley who have been maintstays
of past U.S. teams, and to gauge the
skills of youngsters such as Mix Dis-
kerud, Joe Corona and Brek Shea.
Holden falls in the middle of those
groups. He also faces stiff competition
in the midfield, a particularly strong
position right now.
Fortunately, he has a fan in Klins-
mann, who has shown a willingness
to give every candidate a chance to
impress during the countdown to Bra-
zil 2014.
“Stuart is a work in progress,” Klins-
mann said. “We started with that after
his season was over in England and we
had many talks, and we said we’d take
it one day at a time. He’s a workaholic
and he can’t get enough. We’ve got to
build him and that’s what we’re doing.
“Going 90 minutes, and even in the
last 10 minutes chasing down people, it
was great to see. It gives us a very valu-
able option going forward at midfield.
I’m glad about his progress.”
So are Holden’s teammates. Beas-
ley, a member of the last three World
Cup squads, praises Holden’s “fighting
spirit.” Donovan, coming off a self-
imposed four-month hiatus from the
sport but still a key to American for-
tunes on the world stage, calls Holden
“relentless.” Klinsmann thinks Hold-
en’s outgoing, encouraging personality
helps the group.
At his best, Holden sparks the offense
with long diagonal passes and pen-
etrating runs. He hasn’t shown much of
that in the Gold Cup — his passing was
solid against Costa Rica, though — and
it’s probably unfair to expect too much
from him this soon.
Just being on the field for his nation-
al team, which plays El Salvador today
at Baltimore in the quarterfinals, is a
huge step.
“It doesn’t really matter what you
have done in the past,” said Holden,
who was born in Scotland but grew up
in Sugar Land, Texas. “I get on the field
and I have to show what I can do now,
and what I can for this team.
“I put the most pressure on myself
to perform, and I don’t think about
anything from anywhere else. I am here
to contribute in whatever way I can.”
Making his way back onto the team
Stuart Holden (far right) celebrates with his U.S. teammates after a
goal during action against Cuba earlier this month in Sandy, Utah.
Blatter will ask
to move World Cup
to winter
GOING, Austria (AP) — FIFA
president Sepp Blatter plans to
ask the governing body’s exec-
utive committee to consider
moving the 2022 World Cup
in Qatar to the winter to avoid
the searing summer heat.
“If this World Cup is to
become a party for the people,
you can’t play football in the
summer,” Blatter said Wednes-
day. “You can cool down the
stadiums but you can’t cool
down the whole country.”
Despite health concerns
included in an official report
before the vote, the FIFA exec-
utive committee opted for the
tiny emirate’s bid in 2010. Blat-
ter has repeatedly refused to
say if he backed Qatar, which
can have temperatures of 122
degrees during the summer.
The head of the local orga-
nizing committee, Hassan Al-
Thawadi, said Qatar bid for
a summer tournament. How-
ever, he left open the option
of a switch to another time of
the year.
“It there is a wish from the
football community to move
the World Cup to the winter,
we are open for it,” said Al-
Thawadi, who spoke to the
conference through a live
video connection.
In May, Blatter said in an
interview with a French news-
paper it would be “not rational
and reasonable” to stage the
first World Cup in the Middle
East in the summer.
Moving the tournament
to the winter would have a
major impact on the schedule
of European soccer leagues,
which would have to change
things for at least one season.
“There is still enough time,”
Blatter said. “I will bring this
up to the executive commit-
Air-conditioned stadiums
to beat the heat were a defin-
ing theme of Qatar’s bid, but
the cooling technology only
resolves the problem in venues
for players, fans and officials.
Summerhays lead
at Sanderson Farms
MADISON, Miss. — Dan-
iel Summerhays had to think
about his upcoming birdie
putt on the 18th hole for 1
hour, 17 minutes before finally
stepping on the green.
It was worth the wait.
The 29-year-old Summer-
hays nailed his 19-foot birdie
putt after thunderstorms rolled
through Annandale Golf Club,
tying Nicholas Thompson for
the lead going into the final
round of the Sanderson Farms
Championship on Saturday.
Summerhays came into
the third round with a four-
stroke lead, but his 3-under
69 allowed the field to catch
up on a course that is giving
up plenty of birdies thanks to
calm conditions, soft fairways
and forgiving greens.
“It was just a scrappy round,”
Summerhays said. “The shots I
did hit good, I was just missing
on the putts. They were those
putts where your eyes get big
and then you’re disappointed.
But that’s golf.”
It was a long day for Sum-
merhays, who said he had to
get up before 5 a.m. and played
28 holes Saturday after also
completing his second round
because of weather delays
Thursday and Friday.
It was a strange scene on
his final putt. The heavy thun-
derstorms had chased all the
fans home early and only a
few tournament officials were
hanging around the green
when Summerhays made his
putt. His caddie didn’t even
have his bag, simply clutching
the putter head cover.
After Summerhays made
it, he raised his club and
acknowledged the imaginary
crowd before laughing with his
Golden State Warriors guard
Stephen Curry had four bird-
ies in a late six-hole stretch
Saturday to take a one-point
lead after the second round of
the American Century Cham-
Curry had 25 points in the
round and 47 overall in the
modified Stableford format
that awards graduated points
for pars or better. Former NHL
player Jeremy Roenick and
former NFL quarterback Chris
Chandler were tied for second,
and former NFL quarterback
Mark Rypien was two points
back at 45.
“Considering the circum-
stances, this is the best I have
ever played,” said Curry, who
doesn’t play during the NBA
season. “That’s pretty crazy. I
didn’t expect that coming in.”
After the birdie run, Curry
bogeyed Nos. 17 and 18. Over-
all, he had five birdies and
three bogeys for a 2-under
70 at Edgewood Tahoe Golf
Chandler, a past champion,
had 22 points in the second

Elliott Sadler (left) and Regan Smith are having a spat in the Nationwide Series.
Smith reaches out to Sadler
ahead of Chicagoland
JOILET, Ill. (AP) — Just as predictable
as the weekend fender-bashing is the
awkward conversation a few days later.
This time, it was Elliott Sadler and
Regan Smith. And they talked, too. Even
Dale Earnhardt Jr. waded into the fray.
The latest NASCAR feud arrived Sat-
urday at Chicagoland Speedway when
Sadler, Smith and rest of the Nationwide
drivers held two practice sessions for
today’s STP 300. The stop in suburban
Chicago comes one week after the cham-
pionship contenders got into a heated
discussion in New Hampshire.
“For him to do what he did at New
Hampshire, I’m still ticked about it,”
Sadler said. “But we talked and we agree
that our racing’s going to change a little
bit between us. But we know that we’re
going to be racing around each other a lot
between now and Homestead.”
That means the dispute could have
staying power, especially after the con-
versation between Sadler and Smith pro-
duced little headway.
It all started when Smith spun Sadler
around on the final restart in last Satur-
day’s race at Loudon, costing him a shot
at a solid top-10 finish and a potential
$100,000 bonus. An angry Sadler then
confronted Smith after the race, insisting
he would not win the series title this year.
“I made the move and I can’t take it
back,” Smith said. “I understand his anger
100 percent, and I know exactly where he
was coming from. He was racing for a lot
of money and the opportunity to race for
a lot of money again this week.”
Throwing out what was at stake, Sadler
thought the collision was particularly
egregious because he felt he handed a big
break to Smith when he gave him extra
room to maneuver in a tough spot at the
series’ stop in Iowa and said he went out
of his way to race him cleanly earlier in
New Hampshire. The two talked during
the week, and Earnhardt, the co-owner of
Smith’s No. 7 Chevrolet, also reached out
to close friend Sadler.
“We talked and if it’s a situation where
we’re going for it, I’m sure he’s going to
race me considerably harder than what he
has in the past,” Smith said, “and that’s to
be expected. I would do the same.”
Sadler, who won last July’s Nationwide
race at Chicagoland, shook his head from
side to side when asked if he felt any bet-
ter after the conversation.
“My No. 1 goal is to win the champion-
ship and win races,” he said. “The effect of
me and how I race Regan is just going to
change, as far as giving room and give and
take and stuff like that is probably going to
change a little bit.”
Sadler finished 18th in New Hampshire
and is fifth in the standings, trailing series
leader Smith by 24 points. Sam Hornish Jr.
is second, just five points back, and Austin
Dillon is third with 16 races left.
“I love it. I hope that they’re mad at
each other,” Dillon said, enjoying the
argument between Sadler and Smith. “If
not, I’m going to go tell Elliott Regan’s
talking about him behind his back. I think
it’s funny.”
While arguments between competi-
tors are nothing new in sports, NASCAR
drivers seem to make more of an effort to
smooth over disputes than say, two hock-
ey players who just got into a fight. When
the dugouts clear at a baseball game, don’t
expect to see the managers jump on the
phone to air their grievances.
Sadler said there’s a simple reason for
that difference.
“When you play hockey, you have
‘Blackhawks’ written on your jersey, so
you’re responsible for the Blackhawks,” he
said. “When you drive racing, we have For-
tune 500 companies up here. They don’t
want you running around, I think, punch-
ing people, then setting a bad example.
And I think it’s a courtesy thing.”
Brian Vickers, who won last Sunday’s
Sprint Cup race in New Hampshire, said
the calls also happen because drivers
spend more time with each other more
than competitors in other sports. But
Dillon questioned the need for many of
them, saying the most important practice
is to be responsible to your teammates
and race your competitors the way you
want to be raced.
“Every driver looks at those things
differently and has different ways that
they want them to be handled when it
happens,” Smith said. “It was a situation
where I felt like I needed to call even
though it was not one of those phone calls
you really want to make.”

Choosing right plants
can create a stunning
outdoor area
By Maureen Gilmer
Scripps Howard News Service
It’s easy to create a drop-dead-
gorgeous outdoor area for summer
Whether you have a new land-
scape or are just sprucing up your old
patio, deck or terrace, consider these
do’s and don’ts from the pros as to
what and where to plant.
• Don’t oversize plants. Designers
know that a plant too large for an out-
door living space will eventually be
hacked down to size or just removed
altogether. Double check every plant
for its mature height and diameter
before using it in tight spaces.
• Don’t use sharp plants. The
recent interest in succulents includes
many with potentially painful thorns
and spines. These plants can serious-
ly injure adults, children and pets.
Having such plants at the edge of a
patio or walkway can be especially
• Don’t use toxic plants. Because
children tend to touch and some-
times eat much of what they discov-
er, it’s wise to avoid patio plants that
are poisonous. Some of the major
offenders include morning glory,
euphorbia, castor bean, foxglove and
• Don’t use pungent plants. Not
all flower scents are appealing, and
some blooms mimic pheromones
that smell musky and unpleasant to
humans. Others can become unap-
pealing if they’re too potent so close
up. While this is a personal prefer-
ence, beware of privet, female ginkgo
tree, stinking hellebore, toyon and
carob trees grown in and around
outdoor living areas.
• Don’t use oversized pots. Large
planted pots are very heavy, and
may bear more weight than an aging
deck can handle. Large pots used for
planting small patio trees or tropicals
can be difficult to move or remove
without heavy lifting. Whenever pos-
sible, place wheeled platforms under
large pots so you can move them
around to clean or relocate for winter
• Do plant fragrant flowers. The
haunting scent of jasmine adds
romance to a patio, particularly after
dark when the source is less visible.
Careful planting design can create a
succession of seasonal aromathera-
pies. Position the various species to
maximize the experience for you and
your guests.
• Do exploit close-up detail. While
sitting on the patio, you’ll get an eye-
ful of close-up planting. This is where
to grow intricately detailed flowers
too often overlooked in a larger land-
scape. Plants with colored foliage can
be mixed and matched here for inter-
est in all seasons.
• Do use trees in pots. Small trees
in big pots are a designer’s most pow-
erful tool for patios that lack ground
for planting. They are great problem-
solvers, too. A palm or crepe myrtle,
to name two possibilities, can dis-
tract the eye from a large bare wall
behind it. A row of such trees can
become visual partitions to improve
privacy or block unattractive views.
• Do use diversity. Some homes
don’t have views as such, so intricate
planting combinations can really
help. Use a wide variety of small
plants with exquisite qualities.
• Do plant for seasoning. Culinary

You can design your own
or just add something unexpected
By Jennifer Forker
The Associated Press
Even a small slice of the big outdoors can call for big art.
With some do-it-yourself ingenuity, creating artwork for an
outdoor living space needn’t be costly or complicated. In a few
summer hours, you can make a piece, large or not-so-large, that
packs a visual wallop.
Just keep in mind the advice of Bob Richter, interior designer
and cast member of PBS’ treasure-hunting series “Market War-
riors”: “There’s a fine line between ‘What’s that piece of junk in
your yard?’ and art.”
Landscape designer Chris H. Olsen, of Little Rock, Ark., is
fond of wine bottles, repurposing empties in myriad ways for
the garden — as an artsy wall, accent lighting and art objects.
“I’m all about fun, funky, great displays and projects that are
relatively easy to do,” says Olsen.
To add patio privacy or garden interest, Olsen builds a wine
bottle wall: vertical rows of wine bottles inserted into a wood
frame using metal rods.
“I love a little ‘bling bling’ in the garden, and I love glass,”
says Olsen.
Another conversation starter: Olsen’s “bottle stars” — empty,
corked wine bottles that are glued together to create a star
shape, then hung in trees and positioned in planted pots. This
and other outdoor DIY projects can be found in his book “Chris
H. Olsen’s Five Seasons” (Leisure Arts, 2011).
David Bromstad, host of “HGTV Star” and host designer of
the network’s “Color Splash,” says stringing a dozen or more
wine bottles with lights inside them and hanging them from a
pergola or other substantial structure — the underside of a deck,
say — creates alluring outdoor lighting.
“The more the better,” he says. “If you do a ton of those, you’ll
have an (art) installation.”
Bromstad recommends cutting off the wine bottles’ bottoms
and stringing the lights through the bottles with outdoor lamp
cord. Visit Pinterest, the online projects board, for images of this
and other ways to use wine bottles as lighting.
Bromstad is known for creating large pieces bursting with
color for his TV show clients. DIYers can do the same for an out-
door space, he says, by using outdoor-safe supplies: pressure-
treated plywood instead of canvas, and an outdoor primer and
paint. Bromstad uses Nova Color, an acrylic paint that stands up
well to the elements.
Distress the plywood before painting to accentuate its rough-
ness, he suggests. Do drip painting — a la Jackson Pollock — if
your artistic skills are limited.
“Everything that has to be outdoors has to last through the
elements,” Bromstad says, “so you might as well make it look
rough from the beginning.”
Both Bromstad and Olsen say concrete blocks are useful in
the garden: Stack them to build a wall, cement couch, bench or
table. Make it artsy by planting the openings with flowers, herbs
or other greenery. Again, Pinterest posts scads of images.
“It’s just stacking,” says Olsen. “You don’t even have to mortar it.”
One more idea from Bromstad: Hang old gutters from a
fence, garage wall or along a pergola’s perimeter — just about
anywhere, he says — and plant them with impatiens or herbs.
Make sure the gutters slope so water can drain.
“It’s one big, beautiful art project,” says Bromstad. “It’s just
Richter roams flea markets for large outdoor art for himself
and clients, gravitating toward antique signage and industrial-
looking collectibles because they can weather the elements.
Surfboards — propped on a deck or attached to a garage wall
— are popular right now, he says.
While art is in the eye of the beholder, Richter says care and
placement is the key.
“It’s like framing a piece of art,” he says. “Half of ‘art,’ I think,
is how you display it and where you display it.”
Here are directions for one DIY outdoor-art project:
“Bottle Star”
(Adapted from the book “Chris H. Olsen’s Five Seasons”)
9 assorted wine bottles, empty and corked
4 rolls of paper towels (to brace bottles)
Household adhesive sealant
1. Glue the bottoms of four wine bottles together to resemble
a plus (+) sign. Let dry for four hours.
2. Where the four bottles meet, glue one additional bottle sit-
ting up. Let dry four hours.
3. Using paper towel rolls to brace them, glue the four
remaining bottles leaning upward at a 45-degree angle, allowing
each to dry before attaching the next.
Landscape designer Chris H. Olsen, of Little Rock, Ark., created a decorative wall out of concrete blocks planted with
ivy and tropical plants. Cement couches, benches and tables also can be made by stacking concrete blocks.
Chris Olsen created a decorative wall out of empty wine
bottles by threading them onto metal poles inserted into
a wooden frame.

refreshing take in the depths of summer.

Iowa Fair plans butter sculpture of Lincoln
DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — A butter sculpture of President
Abraham Lincoln will share the dairy-centric spotlight this year
with the world-famous butter cow at the Iowa State Fair.
Organizers announced Monday that a sculpture of Lincoln,
along with a replica of the Lincoln Highway Bridge in central
Iowa, will be on display in a 40-degree cooler when the fair
opens in August.
It will take sculptor Sarah Pratt three weeks and 1,000 pounds
of regular salted butter to create the pieces. She says she’s unsure
how she’ll depict Lincoln.
The fair runs Aug. 8 to Aug. 18.

Two members of the Kennedy
family who thought they were
doing a good deed by freeing
an entangled sea turtle actu-
ally violated the law, according
to the National Oceanic and
Atmospheric Administration.
John Bullard of NOAA’s Divi-
sion of Fisheries said he spoke
to brothers Max and Robert F.
Kennedy Jr. about their rescue
of the leatherback turtle and
explained to them that what
they did was dangerous and
a violation of the Endangered
Species Act, which makes it
illegal to handle an endan-
gered or protected species.
The Kennedys freed the esti-
mated 500-pound turtle from
a buoy line wrapped around
its head and fins on July 6 after
they spotted it while out sail-
ing on Nantucket Sound.
The brothers have been
“cooperative and very help-
ful” as the agency gathers pic-
tures, gear and other evidence
involved in the rescue, Bullard
told Cape Cod Times.
Turtle rescue is best left to
professionals because of the
danger involved, he said. Any-
one who spots a distressed
turtle should contact NOAA.
An untrained person runs
the risk of getting tangled in
the line and pulled under by a
turtle, which can weigh up to
700 pounds and hold its breath
a lot longer than a human, he
“You can get entangled, go
under and it can turn into a
tragedy,” he said.
Only the Provincetown
Center for Coastal Studies is
certified to handle turtles.
There have been 22 report-
ed turtle entanglements in
Massachusetts, Rhode Island
and New York waters this year,
NOAA said, compared with
eight during the same period
last year.
Feds: Kennedys’
sea turtle rescue
was a violation
NEW YORK (AP) — When
Beth Hendrickson first pro-
posed selling garbage bags
instead of candy as a school
fundraiser, “people laughed at
They don’t laugh anymore.
Hendrickson, principal of St.
Ann Interparochial School
in Morganfield, Ky., says the
school makes $20,000 a year
selling garbage bags. And it’s
not just parents of the school’s
230 students who buy them.
Local businesses and govern-
ment offices in Morganfield
— population 3,500 — buy
garbage bags from the school
as well.
“Nobody needs candy,”
Hendrickson says. “But trash
bags — that’s something every-
body needs.”
The trash bag sale, done
through Bags for Bucks, is just
one alternative to the candy-
and-gift wrap sales that so
many communities hold when
school fundraising efforts
resume each fall. Some PTAs
are going high-tech, using
online platforms to solicit
and process donations, selling
digital images of kids’ artwork
on coffee mugs or magnets,
and hosting scavenger hunts
where clues are collected with
cellphone photos. And a few
school groups have stopped
selling products altogether,
instead encouraging parents
to simply write checks.
Bed sheets and Greenraising
But others, like Hendrick-
son, are experimenting with
sales of unusual products.
The garbage bags were such
a hit that when a company
called Amadora approached
Hendrickson about selling
bed sheets, she gave it a try.
The first year, the school sold
about $16,000 worth of sheets
to fund new classroom tech-
nology. Last year, sheet sales
dropped to $9,000 — after all,
how many sheets do fami-
lies at one small school need?
— but the company intro-
duced new prints this year,
so Hendrickson’s giving it
another go.
Not all schools have found
success with alternative prod-
ucts, however. Potter Road
Elementary School in Fram-
ingham, Mass., tried selling
organic goodies and items
made from recycled materi-
als through a company called
Greenraising. Nancy Novo
O’Connor, co-president of the
parent-teacher organization,
said Greenraising was a great
vendor to work with, but the
organic products “did not raise
nearly as much money” as the
traditional sale of chocolates
and wrapping paper, so they
went back to a previous ven-
Direct donations
Some schools have done
away with catalog sales alto-
gether, instead asking parents
to make direct donations. Ali-
son Oleson, former president
of the Sleepy Hollow PTA in
Falls Church, Va., said with
both parents working in so
many families, people just
don’t have time “to go out and
get their kids to sell things. And
schools can’t get the volunteers
to sit there and sort the wrap-
ping paper and candy when it
comes in.”
Another reason to drop cat-
alog sales is that schools only
keep a portion of what they
sell — 42 percent on average,
according to the Association of
Fund-Raising Distributors and
Suppliers. A letter to Sleepy
Hollow parents explaining the
switch noted that “the excit-
ing part of this fundraising
program is that 100 percent of
your donation goes to support
PTA programs (not 50 percent,
as before) and it is tax deduct-
But there’s one line of prod-
ucts Oleson hopes schools keep
selling: mugs, T-shirts, bags and
trivets bearing images of kids’
artwork. “I like that because it
has sentimental value,” Oleson
said. “They do it right before
Mother’s Day, and the kids can
feel proud of it.”
Online platforms
Some parent organizations
now accept donations online.
But that involves third-party
sites that charge fees to pro-
cess the funds, which raises
the question: If supporters
can click on a link in an email
to donate by credit card, will
more people give because it’s
easier than writing a check? Or
will the fees hurt the bottom
Michael Nilsen, spokesman
for the Association of Fund-
raising Professionals, says
there’s no clear answer, but the
best approach is probably “a
mix,” such as a letter physi-
cally sent home with an option
to mail back, followed by an
email reminder with an online
payment option. He added that
because online sites charge dif-
ferent fees for various services,
the right one depends on the
group’s needs.
Many schools host tried-
and-true fundraising events
throughout the year — bake
sales and raffles any time
there’s a crowd in school,
whether for Election Day, con-
certs or parent-teacher night.
Other events are more labor
intensive: Carnivals require
volunteers to run games and
activities. Auctions need com-
mittees to solicit donations,
track bids and arrange delivery
and payment.
In San Francisco, the Alvara-
do Elementary School’s annual
scavenger hunt has a high-tech
spin: Teams get lists of clues,
then use cellphones to photo-
graph answers as they scour
their neighborhoods. Teams
pay to participate but most
money raised comes from cor-
porate sponsors making dona-
tions in exchange for having
their names attached to the

Q: It seems like you get a lot of
letters from people who are mad
about something that happened,
but didn’t bother to complain until
well after the fact. Could you per-
haps say a few words about com-
plaining effectively and politely?
A: I think that if more people
complained in a nice
manner about reasonable
issues, they’d be happier
For example, let’s say
your hotel room’s air-con-
ditioning system has two
settings: Arctic and Ant-
arctic. Rather than having
a miserable stay because
you’re freezing, call the
front desk and ask if they
will send someone to fix
it or if they can move you
to another room. There is
nothing wrong with this
— unless you act like a diva about
If the dude next to you on a plane
is wearing headphones and belting
out, “We are never ever ever getting
back together,” tap him lightly on
the arm and say, “I’m sorry, but I’m
trying to sleep. Would you mind not
singing?” He’ll get the idea.
In most cases — not all, but
most — people are simply unaware
they’re doing something annoying.
If you point it out nicely, they’ll
stop. Same thing with hotels. They
want you to have a good expe-
rience, so if something is wrong,
speak up during your stay and let
them attempt to fix it.
Q: Is it ever OK to ask a strang-
er for a bite of their food? This
woman who was sitting at the
table next to me in a restaurant
asked me if she could try one of
my french fries because, as she
put it, “I want to order them, but
I have this thing about under-
cooked steak fries.”
A: Good for you for resisting the
urge to reply, “Gee, that’s
funny — I have this thing
about rude, presumptuous
people.” No, it’s not OK to
ask a stranger if you can
taste their food. She could
have simply asked you if
they were undercooked, or,
better yet, asked the waiter
if the chef could cook her
fries a bit longer to make
them extra-crispy.
Q: Clipping one’s nails
on the subway: yes or no?
A: The experience of rid-
ing the subway is annoying
enough without having to worry
about a shard of someone’s newly
clipped thumbnail flying into your
eye and blinding you. But on a
much more simple level, the sub-
way is a public place. One does not
perform personal grooming rituals,
such as nail-clipping, in a public
place. It’s that simple.

Voice-operated dashboard technology still risky
Dashboard technology that
lets drivers text and email with
voice commands — marketed
as a safer alternative — actu-
ally is more distracting than
simply talking on a cellphone,
a new AAA study found.
Automakers have been trying
to excite new-car buyers, espe-
cially younger ones, with dash-
board infotainment systems
that let drivers use voice com-
mands to do things like turning
on windshield wipers, posting
Facebook messages or order-
ing pizza. The pitch has been
that hands-free devices are safer
because they enable drivers to
keep their hands on the wheel
and their eyes on the road.
But talking on a hands-free
phone isn’t significantly safer for
drivers than talking on a hand-
held phone, and using hands-free
devices that translate speech into
text is the most distracting of all,
researchers reported in a recent
study. Speech-to-text systems
that enable drivers to send, scroll
through, or delete email and text
messages required greater con-
centration by drivers than other
potentially distracting activities
examined in the study like talk-
ing on the phone, talking to a
passenger, listening to a book on
tape or listening to the radio.
The greater the concen-
tration required to perform a
task, the more likely a driver
is to develop what researchers
call “tunnel vision” or “inat-
tention blindness.” Drivers will
stop scanning the roadway or
ignore their side and rearview
mirrors. Instead, they look
straight ahead, but fail to see
what’s in front of them, like red
lights and pedestrians.
“People aren’t seeing what
they need to see to drive. That’s
the scariest part to me,” said
Peter Kissinger, president and
CEO of the AAA Foundation for
Traffic Safety, the group’s safety
research arm. “Police accident
investigative reports are filled
with comments like the ‘looked,
but did not see.’ That’s what
drivers tell them. We used to
think they were lying, but now
we know that’s actually true.”
There are about 9 million
cars and trucks on the road
with infotainment systems,
and that will jump to about 62
million vehicles by 2018, AAA
spokeswoman Yolanda Cade
said, citing automotive indus-
try research. At the same time,
drivers tell the AAA they believe
phones and other devices are
safe to use behind the wheel if
they are hands-free, she said.
“We believe there is a pub-
lic safety crisis looming,” Cade
said. “We hope this study will
change some widely held mis-
conceptions by motorists.”
AAA officials who briefed
automakers, safety advocates
and the National Highway Traf-
fic Safety Administration on the
study’s findings said they want
to limit in-vehicle, voice-driven
technologies to “core driv-
ing tasks.” The National Safety
Council, responding to the AAA
study, also called on industry and
policymakers “to reconsider the
inclusion of communications
and entertainment technology
built into vehicles which allow,
or even encourage, the driver to
engage in these activities at the
expense of focusing on driving.”
The Alliance of Automobile
Manufacturers was skeptical.
“We are extremely concerned
that it could send a mislead-
ing message, since it suggests
that hand-held and hands-free
devices are equally risky,” the
association said in a statement.
The automakers’ trade
group said the AAA study
focuses only on the mental
distraction posed by using a
device and ignores the visual
and manual aspects of hand-
held versus hands-free systems
that are integrated into cars.
Other studies have also
compared hand-held and
hands-free phone use, finding
they are equally risky or nearly
so. But a recent National High-
way Traffic Safety Administra-
tion study of drivers’ real world
driving experiences found
hand-held phone use was less
safe than hands-free.
Distracted driving is more
widespread in the U.S. than in
Europe, according to a survey
of drivers about their cellphone
and texting habits released by
the Centers for Disease Control
and Prevention earlier this year.
More U.S. drivers reported talk-
ing on their cellphones behind
the wheel than their counter-
parts in seven European coun-
tries. A larger share of U.S. driv-
ers also reported reading or
sending text or email messages
while driving. Only Portugal’s
drivers matched those in the
U.S. for this distracting habit
— 31 percent in both countries.
Researchers at the University
of Utah who conducted the study
for the AAA measured the brain-
waves, eye movement, driving
performance and other indica-
tors of 32 university students as
they drove and performed a vari-
ety of secondary tasks, ranging
from listening to music to sending
emails. Cameras were mounted
inside the car to track drivers’ eye
and head movements. A device
that drivers pressed was used to
record their reaction time to red
and green lights introduced to
their field of vision. Drivers were
fitted with a special skull cap to
record their brain activity.
The students were tested
while not driving, while driving
in a simulator and while driving
a car on a 3-mile loop through a
suburban Salt Lake City neigh-
borhood with stop signs and
stoplights. A researcher with a
backup braking system accom-
panied the students in the test
One reason using voice com-
mands is so much more distract-
ing for drivers, even though they
aren’t using their hands, is that
they often require more concen-
tration than simply speaking to
another person, said University
of Utah psychology professor
David Strayer, an expert on cog-
nitive distraction and lead author
of the study. Talking to a comput-
er requires far greater precision
than talking to a person, he said.
Otherwise, “Call home” may get
you Home Depot.
Synthetic computer voices
can be harder to understand
than human voices, also
requiring more attention. The
computers used in the study
were exceptionally high-fideli-
ty systems that made no errors,
but the systems in cars aren’t
as good, Strayer said. He said
that means the study probably
underestimates the concentra-
tion required of drivers, and
thus the ability of speech-to-
text systems to distract them.
Another difference: In phone
conversations, a person who is
listening will give indications
that they agree with what the
speaker has said or have heard
what was said. Computers don’t
provide that feedback.
News Summary: Voice-operated
car tech still risky
NOT SO SAFE: Dashboard technology that lets drivers text
and email with voice commands — marketed as a safer alter-
native — actually is more distracting than simply talking on a
cellphone, a new AAA study found.
AND THE PHONE? Talking on a hands-free phone isn’t sig-
nificantly safer for drivers than talking on a hand-held phone,
and using hands-free devices that translate speech into text is
the most distracting of all, researchers reported.
UNDER THE HOOD: Automakers have been trying to excite
new-car buyers with dashboard systems that let drivers use voice
commands to do things like turning on windshield wipers, post-
ing Facebook messages or ordering pizza.

From the Associated Press
John Rosemond has been
dispensing parenting advice in
his newspaper column since
1976, making him one of the
longest-running syndicated
columnists in the country.
But some Kentucky authori-
ties want to put him in a time
In May, Kentucky’s attor-
ney general and its Board of
Examiners of Psychology told
Rosemond his parenting col-
umn — which regularly offers
old-school advice and shows
little tolerance for any kind of
parental coddling — amounts
to the illegal practice of psy-
They want him to agree to a
cease-and-desist order. In par-
ticular, they want Rosemond
to stop identifying himself as a
psychologist, because he is not
a licensed psychologist in Ken-
tucky. They also suggest that
columns written in a question-
and-answer format are a par-
ticular concern because they
are akin to providing direct
mental health services.
Rosemond, an author of
11 parenting books who has
a master’s degree in psychol-
ogy from Western Illinois and
is a licensed psychologist in his
home state of North Carolina,
sees the board’s letter as an
effort at censorship and is fil-
ing a lawsuit Tuesday in federal
court seeking to bar the state
from taking any action against
him. His column is syndicated
through McClatchy-Tribune
News services and is estimated
to run in more than 200 news-
He is represented by the
Arlington, Va.-based Institute
for Justice, which has filed
multiple lawsuits challenging
what they see as overreach by
government licensing boards.
Institute for Justice lawyer
Paul Sherman says that under
Kentucky’s logic, columnists
like Dear Abby and television
personalities like Dr. Phil and
Dr. Oz are breaking the law
any time they offer advice,
because the content is aired in
Kentucky and meets the state’s
broad definition of psychologi-
cal advice.
The institute has filed a
variety of challenges to state
and federal laws they say are
designed to shield special-
interest occupations from
competition. They recently
filed a successful challenge to
new IRS rules that would have
required many tax preparers to
pass a competency exam. They
also recently won a case on
behalf of Benedictine monks
who challenged a Louisiana
law that prevented them from
making and selling caskets
because they were not licensed
funeral directors.
The Kentucky board’s
actions against Rosemond are
particularly egregious, Sher-
man said, because the state is
seeking to regulate a psycholo-
gist outside its own borders
and because the rules it seeks
to enforce are so broad that
they could easily interfere with
all manner of free speech.
“This is one of the most
important questions unan-
swered by the Supreme Court:
Can occupational licensing
laws trump the First Amend-
ment? We’re looking forward to
getting an answer,” Sherman
Eva Markham, who chairs
the Kentucky psychology
board, said Tuesday that the
board’s primary point of con-
tention is that Rosemond
refers to himself as a psycholo-
gist, when he is not licensed in
Kentucky. She pointed out that
the master’s degree that backs
his license in North Carolina
would be insufficient in Ken-
She said the concerns about
the Q-and-A format of the col-
umn likely would never have
been an issue for the board
except for the concerns about
his title.
“We don’t care what he
writes,” she said. “I see advice
columns that are horrendously
bad ... but we can’t do a thing
about it.”

The population of Japa-
nese beetles in Mid-Missouri
is increasing again this year,
but their influx is about three
weeks later than last year.
The numbers of Japanese
beetles probably will peak at
the end of July.
The Japanese beetle (Popil-
lia japonica Newman) is a
highly destructive plant pest
that can be very difficult and
expensive to control. Feeding
on grass roots, Japanese bee-
tle grubs damage lawns, golf
courses and pastures. Japanese
beetle adults attack the foliage,
flowers or fruits of more than
300 different ornamental and
agricultural plants.
The Japanese beetle is about
⁄2-inch long with a shiny metal-
lic-green body and bronze-col-
ored outer wings. The beetle
has a row of five lateral tufts on
each side and one each on the
last segment of the abdomen.
Japanese beetles were first
found in the United States in
1916 near Riverton, N.J. Since
then, Japanese beetles have
spread throughout most states
east of the Mississippi River.
However, partial infestations
also occur west of the Missis-
sippi River in states such as
Arkansas, Iowa, Kansas, Minne-
sota, Missouri and Oklahoma.
The Cole County Exten-
sion Center has had a pop-
ulation monitoring trap for
the beetles since 2009. When
first started, 200 beetles in a
trap for a week was peak. In
2012, the same trap caught
up to 3,000 in a day. What will
happen in 2013 is difficult to
say; the drought last summer
may have held them back,
and the cool and wet weather
has been correlated to lesser
numbers of cucumber beetles
(a common vegetable pest).
But they will be sure to arrive
in substantial numbers. It
has been reported that after
about five to seven years of
“pest levels” that Japanese
beetles seem to then drop
off. Hopefully this will occur
in the Jefferson City region
soon, but until this happens,
home gardeners may need to
be proactive to protect plants
that these beetles find desir-
able. Unlike cucumber beetles
which will always show up to
feed on plants in the cucum-
ber/melon/squash family,
Japanese beetles are erratic
and may be unpredictable on
what they choose to feed on
from year to year.
How to control beetles
Control of Japanese beetles
is complicated, because the
grub stage lives in the soil,
with lawns being a favorite
place. The adults feed on plant
leaves, and have high prefer-
ence for specific plants. Con-
trol options include treating
the soil, plant foliage or mass
trapping. A critical component
of the control, is understanding
you have a plant or plants that
are a favorite food of theirs,
and then if you want to spend
the time and resources to pro-
tect that plant(s), or just want
to tolerate the damage for a
month or so.
Unfortunately for many
individuals, two control
options will either be too time
consuming or too expensive.
Hand picking can be used
for small numbers of beetles.
For larger numbers, some
individuals like to use buckets
or pans of soapy water, and
they then knock the plants
such that the beetles fall into
the soapy solution. The soap
plugs up the breathing pores
of the insect, and they suf-
focate. Another hand control
tactic is to use a vacuum of
some type, be it a sump vac,
dust buster, house vacuum or
leaf blower with reversed air
flow. A strong vacuum can be
hard on plant foliage so one
would need to experiment
some with the plant and vac-
uum devise.
Netting is effective but time
consuming to apply and some-
what expensive. Bird netting
is not fine enough to exclude
the beetles. Window screening
is the least expensive screen
readily available to home gar-
deners that is effective. For
some plants that are highly
attractive to birds and Japa-
nese beetles (e.g. grapes), it
could serve two purposes. Jap-
anese beetles will be relatively
easy to exclude with netting, as
compared to birds and wildlife
(like raccoons) which may be
very persistent or cunning in
circumventing netting.
Synthetic or conventional
insecticides are likely to be the
most easy and cost-effective
way to effectively control Japa-
nese beetles.
Several over-the-counter
and commercial insecticides
are labeled for adult and larval
(white grub) Japanese beetles.
• Carbaryl (Sevin) is effec-
tive for both adults and grubs.
It is widely regarded as giving
the most obvious and immedi-
ate knock down or kill of the
adults. Since carbaryl provides
only one to two weeks of pro-
tection; frequent reapplication
will be needed during heavy
• Products containing
pyrethroids such as cyfluth-
rin (Bayer Advanced Lawn &
Garden Multi-Insect Killer),
bifenthrin (Hi-Yield Bug Blast-
er; Bug-B-Gon MAX® Lawn &
Garden Insect Killer), lamb-
da-cyhalothrin (Spectracide
Triazicide), and permethrin
(many manufacturers and for-
mulations), will provide two
to three weeks protection. The
criticism of these products is
the adults don’t appear readily
killed; they get groggy and may
go away or hang around.
• Systemic products (neo-
nicotinoids) like imidaclo-
prid (e.g. Bayer Advanced
products) and thiamethoxam
(Meridian) offer a good option
and will provide protection
for three weeks if not much
more (check label). How they
are recommended for con-
trol is the most telling with
roses. Bayer advises to apply
at the onset of Japanese beetle
emergence. If beetle dam-
age becomes apparent, then
apply carbaryl, and reapply it
whenever additional control is
needed. These systemic prod-
ucts do not translocate well
into flower petals, so control
may be achieved on the foli-
age but not the flowers. How-
ever, remember the beetles do
need to eat some plant parts
in order to be killed.
• For those wanting an
organic approach, Neem prod-
ucts like Azatrol or Neem-Away
will provide three to four days
deterrence of feeding. Sequen-
tial applications of all products
may be needed under extend-
ed periods of activity.
• Pyrethrum based products
may provide brief knock down,
but may not kill the beetles.
Pyrethrum-based products
with the synergist piperonyl
butoxide may perform slightly
better. However, control will
be extremely short, one or two

with pyrethrum may provide
some better effectiveness due
to the combination of knock
down and deterrence.
• Kaolin clay-based prod-
ucts (e.g. Surround) are proven
to provide feeding and forag-
ing deterrence of beetles. The
clay sticking to beetles disturbs
them, and thus dissuades them
from staying on those plants.
Unfortunately, it turns the
plants a chalky white color.
Mechanical traps
Millions of beetles are cap-
tured annually in mechanical
traps. These traps are com-
monly sold at garden centers
and similar retail outlets. This
method is an easy and inex-
pensive way to reduce beetle
populations and curtail egg
Under favorable conditions,
a trap will capture only about
75 percent of the beetles that
approach it. Because the traps
actually attract more beetles
than they capture, be sure not
to put traps near your garden
or your favorite plants.
Put traps at the borders
of your property, away from
plants the beetles may dam-
age. Traps are most effective
when many of them are spread
over an entire community.
The bags provided with
store bought traps are often
insufficient in size to capture
beetles over several days or a
week during peak flight lev-
els. Garbage bags or similar are
sometimes used to increase
the capacity. If the capture
container becomes too heavy,
consider positioning the trap
so that the bottom will rest
upon the ground to take the
weight off the suspended trap.
Some wildlife (e.g. raccoons
and opossums) like to eat the
beetles and may tear into soft
plastic containers.

The yard of Trish and Ken
Adamson on Dover Street
received high marks from the
Yard of the Month evaluation
Borders filled with blooming
plants and representatives from
the various stages of the season
earned them the July award.
“Her choice of plants
and placement was cleverly
applied with a keen eye for tex-
ture of the plant material mak-
ing an appealing look that ran
throughout,” one judge said.
Unique plant selections and
a variety of colors made this yard
stand out as hot weather arrived.
Among them were fragrant, pink
lilies bought in support of breast
cancer awareness.
Judges appreciated several
beds established for erosion
control but with a design that
works well with the overall
The landscaping primarily
required shade beds, but some
sun lovers, including a succu-
lent bed, were placed closer to
the street.
Many of the plants in her
garden as well as her love of
the act of gardening can be
attributed to Trish’s mother.
And a bench among these spe-
cial plants is a memorial to her
late brother.
“You could tell the owner
was all about family,” another
judge said.

Trish and Ken Adamson’s yard at 225 Dover Street in Jefferson City’s west side earned
July’s “Yard of the Month” distinction. The house has a number of perennials and the
flower beds are filled out with some annuals each year. Sun and shade areas are fea-
tured with several shade beds near the edge of the woods. The couple has also done a
lot of work to try and limit the erosion damage on their hillside.

DEAR ABBY: Am I being selfish? My next-
door neighbor (who is a friend) knew we had
bought an expensive vacuum cleaner last year.
She asked if she could try it out on her carpet
and I agreed, thinking it would be a one-time
favor. I should add that she watches our house
and our cat when we’re trav-
eling, and we do likewise for
She recently asked if she
could borrow it again, and
I didn’t know what to say. I
didn’t want to let her, so I
made an excuse that I need-
ed to buy more vacuum bags.
I suspect that she “borrowed”
it again without my permis-
sion two months ago while
we were away because the
cord wasn’t like I had left it.
How can I tactfully handle this situation?
She’s on a tight budget and can’t afford to buy
this particular vacuum herself. — AM I SELF-
DEAR AM I SELFISH?: Rather than label
you selfish, I’d prefer to call you “stuck.” You
allowed your friend to use the vacuum once
and have given her free run of your home
in your absence. Because she has used the
vacuum again without your permission, she is
likely to do it again.
If you’re afraid of the “ick” factor of having
“her” dust in your house, you’ll have to tell her
plainly that you don’t want her to use the vacu-
um and probably find another house sitter. Or,
knowing she’s short of money, you might let
her use the vacuum but suggest that when she
uses one of your bags she buy some of her own
and replace the one she used with a fresh one.
DEAR ABBY: I am a 19-year-old woman
who recently got over a bout of compulsive
hair-pulling that left the top of my head bald.
The hair hasn’t completely grown back yet, so I
refuse to go anywhere without a hat.
When I’m out in public, people often tell me
it’s rude to wear a hat indoors. While I under-
stand this, my hair is a sensitive subject that
reduces me to tears. What can I say to people
when they continue to badger me? — COV-
DEAR COVERED UP: Point out that it is
even MORE rude to criticize someone’s attire
when the person may have a legitimate reason
for dressing that way. You should also talk with
a hairstylist about buying an inexpensive hair-
piece to wear until your hair grows back. That
may curtail some of the unsolicited comments
you’re receiving.
DEAR ABBY: My mother refuses to get a
cellphone. I know she isn’t afraid of technol-
ogy (she has a tablet and an e-reader). Her
explanation for how to handle an emergency is:
“We will handle it like we did before there were
cellphones.” I had to remind her of the limited
availability of pay phones or courtesy phones
Abby, it bothers me that she chooses not to
have one. I find it hurtful that an easy way to
handle family emergencies is being ignored.
It’s a simple solution. A prepaid cellphone with
a big-numbered keyboard would be a good
way for us to be on the same page. Any advice?
DEAR OUT OF TOUCH: Yes. Stop nag-
ging your mother because it’s not working.
Experience is the most effective teacher. Your
mother will not appreciate what a blessing
a cellphone can be until she learns the hard
way what it’s like to need one and not have
one. This may seem negative, but it’s the

Dust-up over vacuum clouds
friendship between neighbors
Dear Abby
many people owned a copy of
“The Cuckoo’s Calling” before
word leaked out over the week-
end that author Robert Gal-
braith was, in fact, J.K. Rowl-
But among those who did,
a handful managed to get a
signed edition. And that could
mean a lot of money.
Rowling spokeswoman
Nicky Stonehill told The Asso-
ciated Press on Tuesday that
Rowling, the “Harry Potter”
author, signed “a few cop-
ies” of her detective novel as
“Robert Galbraith.” Wishing
to keep her identity secret,
Rowling made no promo-
tional appearances for the
book and published quietly
in April. Stonehill declined to
say how any reader obtained
a signed copy.
Bids for a signed first edi-
tion topped $3,000 on eBay by
Tuesday evening.
“Yes, those books will have
value,” said Angel Webster of
Bauman Rare Books in Man-
hattan. “The first edition is
already a scarce commodity,
and she only signed a handful
of them under vague circum-
Webster added that it was
too soon to know how much
money a signed first edition
might be worth. Signed first
editions of the first “Harry Pot-
ter” book, published in 1997 in
England as “Harry Potter and
the Philosopher’s Stone,” are
worth thousands of dollars.
Webster said the value of a
signed “Cuckoo’s Calling” will
depend on how well the novel
ends up selling and whether
it becomes the first book of a
“The Cuckoo’s Calling”
received favorable reviews
when it first came out but
attracted little attention from
the general public. It is now
No. 1 on, and
publisher Little, Brown and
Company has commissioned
a new printing of 300,000 cop-
ies. Sellers have been out of
stock, and frustrated by the
delay in receiving new books,
which may take as long as two
to three weeks to arrive.
“We’re in the same boat
as other bookstores in this
country — out and waiting for
reprints,” said Gayle Shanks,
co-founder of Changing Hands
Bookstore in Tempe, Ariz.
The novel features London
detective Cormoran Strike.
Little, Brown has announced
that a second Strike novel is
planned for next summer.

British author J.K. Rowling poses for photographers dur-
ing a photo call to unveil her book “The Casual Vacancy”
at the Southbank Centre in London in September 2012.
Rowling confirmed July 14 that “The Cuckoo’s Calling”, a
detective novel which won critical acclaim, was penned
under her pseudonym Robert Galbraith.
LONDON (AP) — Shake-
speare’s Globe theater is about
to take the Bard’s words liter-
ally — “All the world’s a stage.”
The London theater
announced last week it plans
to tour a production of “Ham-
let” to every country in the
world, some 205 nations and
territories in all.
The small-scale production,
performed by a cast of eight,
will tour the world between
April 2014 and April 23, 2016
— the 400th anniversary of
Shakespeare’s death.
“By train, coach, plane and
boat, we aim to take this won-
derful, iconic, multifarious
play to as many fresh ears as
we possibly can,” said artistic
director Dominic Dromgoole.
The target of 205 nations
and territories could vary a
little, and exactly what consti-
tutes a country is in some cases
contested. The United Nations
has 193 member states, while
there were 204 teams in the
London Olympics.
“We are aware that it is
insanely ambitious,” said Globe
spokeswoman Emma Draper.
But she said the company —
and the British Council, a gov-
ernment-backed agency that
will support the tour — believed
it was possible.
Venues have yet to be deter-
mined, but will include Helsin-
gor in Denmark — also known
as Elsinore, where Shakespeare’s
tragedy is set — and Kenya’s Rift
Valley. The tour will start and
end at Shakespeare’s Globe, a
replica Elizabethan playhouse
on the south bank of the River
Thames in London.
The tour is the flipside of
last year’s Globe to Globe fes-
tival, which brought troupes
from around the world to Lon-
don to perform Shakespeare’s
plays in 37 languages.
Theater director Peter Brook
said “Hamlet” was “the most
all-encompassing” and uni-
versal of Shakespeare’s plays.
“The six simplest words in
the English language are ‘to be
or not to be,’” he said. “There
is hardly a corner of the planet
where these words have not
been translated.”

The Jefferson City Public Schools are starting the school year
with a new high school activities director. Mark Caballero will
replace Mike McGurk who accepted a similar position at Lee’s
Summit North.
Caballero, who originally hales from Cedar Falls, Iowa, began
his coaching career as a graduate assistant at Northern Iowa
after playing football for the Panthers. His college coaching
career included stints at Garden City Community College, where
he served as the team’s offensive coordinator. He also served as
offensive line coach at Idaho State, Western Ilinois and Missouri
State, where he worked as recruiting coordinator.
For the last 12 years he has been with Ozark School District,
where he started as an assistant football and wrestling coach
before becoming the assistant athletic director in 2007. He
became the head athletic director in 2009.
More than 20 members of the community, including current
coaches and parents, made up a committee that helped in the
interview process. Four finalists were picked; Caballero com-
peted against three internal candidates for the position.
Only a couple other administrative changes are in the works
for next fall. Jacob Adams will serve as assistant principal at Jef-
ferson City High School and Matt Stacey will serve as assistant
principal at Lewis and Clark Middle School.
“Building principal leadership has been very stable for the
Jefferson City Public Schools,” said David Luther, assistant to
the superintendent.
The district also is moving closer to its goal of providing a
computer for every student with the purchase of 1,700 iPads.
Each elementary school classroom — and select secondary-level
classrooms — will see five or more new iPads, in addition to
existing technology.
All certified teaching staff also received an iPad this summer
to use in their classrooms.

Calvary Lutheran expanding to meet growth
Construction is under-
way at Calvary Lutheran High
School for a 25,000-square-
foot expansion as part of
The “Impacting Tomorrow ...
Today” capital campaign cur-
rently underway.
The Public phase of the
capital campaign will kick-
off on Sept. 15 and includes a
Congregational Phase, a Fam-
ily and Friends Phase followed
by efforts directed at the Com-
“The goal of this campaign
is to generate funds to reduce
our current facility debt and
assist in the building of our
Phase II expansion,” said John
Engelbrecht, executive direc-
tor of Calvary Lutheran High
“This expansion will pro-
vide our students with more
classroom space, an audito-
rium and a gym and allow us
to bring into our own building
the many events we have had
to host at other venues due to
a lack of facilities.”
Construction should be
completed by December, and
also includes added spaces
for a weight room along with
an FFA work area. In March,
Calvary Lutheran High School
became the first non-public
school to have an FFA pro-
“Our students performed
well enough in district and sec-
tional competition to qualify
for state, an exciting accom-
plishment for a first year pro-
gram,” he said
“We definitely want to con-
tinue to expand and build this
Ag Science II has been
added to curriculum and a
new English program has been
adopted for all four grades
with materials developed by
Bob Jones University Press.
Calvary will also offer 15 hours
of college credit through a dual
credit partnership with Con-
cordia University in Nebraska
with courses offered in biol-
ogy, calculus, psychology and
“As part of our school’s
efforts to grow our activities
and clubs, we’re adding an
Academic Team and a Speech
Team,” said Engelbrecht.
“We’re also developing our
“Foresee” program, to meet
the needs of students who
have challenges in academic,
social or emotional areas so we
can assist students in reaching
their God-given potential.”
Currently, 40 percent of
the students are not Lutheran
so the school will continue
to reach out to families look-
ing for Christian education
for their children. The school
offers some financial assis-
tance, including the proceeds
from Calvary’s Gift, a re-sale
shop at 713 Washington.
“In the three and a half years
of operation, Calvary’s Gift
has given back to the school
the equivalent of 39 student
tuitions and that’s been a great
blessing for Calvary,” he said.
Students and teachers
will find other changes as
they return for a new school
year. Through a matching gift
allowed the school to purchase
new computers for the com-
puter lab as well as for office
personnel and teachers.
“We want to continue to
partner with parents in rais-
ing up the next generation of
Christian leaders,” he said.
“There are many changes
underway and our students are
very excited to know that we
will be in the expansion before
Christmas. What a wonderful
gift this is for the educational
ministry of Calvary.”

New leaders, curriculum
shape Helias school year
Blair Oaks to add facilities
Several capital improvement projects are expected
to begin construction during the 2013-14 school year,
reported Superintendent Jim Jones.
At the elementary school, the district’s plan calls
for two new classrooms, a teacher’s workroom and
a family restroom for students with special needs.
The changes will bring students currently in a mobile
classroom unit into the regular building. The altera-
tions also will take the teacher’s workroom off the
stage and into its own dedicated space, Jones said.
The district is also anticipating several improve-
ments to the district’s athletic facilities. The list
includes: the construction of a new high school wres-
tling and weight room facility, the installation of
air-conditioning in the high school gymnasium and
improvements to the Falcon Athletic Complex’s shot
put and discus area.
Superintendent Jim Jones noted when the wres-
tling program was launched a decade ago, two tempo-
rary classrooms were converted to accommodate the
needs of six wrestlers. The wrestling program now has
more than 25 high school-aged wrestlers, Jones said.
“The space is not sufficient to safely and properly
instruct that many wrestlers,” he said.
Jones noted the gymnasium is the only space in the
school district that lacks air-conditioning, although in
2004 administrators added an exhaust fan to help cool
spots that get extremely hot during summer months.
Bids for the projects will be opened on Aug. 13.
Jones is hopeful many local contractors will want to
compete for the work.
“We have a very competitive, hungry environment
with a lot of potential bidders,” Jones said.
Regarding the Wardsville area’s population growth,
Jones noted the large leaps in enrollment figures,
common for the district in the last few years, appear
to be finally slowing.
“Despite the fact that the freshmen class entering

and Travis Reinsch will serve as admis-
sions director.
The school will also follow a new
curriculum in Digital Technology, AP
Economics, Life Skills for the 21st Cen-
tury, Anatomy and Physiology, and AP
American Government and Politics.
“We are excited about the addition
of two new AP classes and the expan-
sion of our new religion curriculum to
the junior year,” said Jones.
Athletic changes at the school
include the addition of Jacob Wadley
as the new wrestling coach.
Jones said “the school’s goals for
this year are to continue to build upon
the tradition of excellence at Helias in
forming and strengthening our stu-
dents in body, mind and soul.”
“We especially hope to strengthen
our ties with the Catholic elemen-
tary schools and parishes that send
students to Helias, as well as with
the greater Jefferson City community,”
Jones said. “With a new president and
director of admissions, the school is
poised to build upon its past success

KIM students getting fresh look at nature
A unique outdoor facet of traditional Montessori curriculum
is slated for the upcoming fall session at KIM School.
The rural location of the school along a section of the Moreau
River allows for exploration of the outdoors through gardening
and hiking, according to Director Ronda Schaefer.
After the 2002 founding of KIM School in a school building
constructed in the 1800s, the teachers and students began to
utilize the previously established rock-lined trails, as well as cre-
ate some of their own, Schaefer said.
As the fiery summer temperatures begin to subside in the
fall months, students will embark on daily treks in the woods
in order to experience lessons of science hands-on and “dispel
fears of nature at an early age,” Schaefer said.
“Nature is refreshing and exhilarating,” she said.
The frequent interaction with nature also supplements a
curriculum with a focus on various scientific subjects such as
botany, zoology, and geography, Schaefer said.
“The children can identify animal tracks, pick up bird feath-
ers and buckeyes,” she said.
Science, among other basic subjects, functions as a portion
of the three-year curriculum of the internationally accredited
school whose goal is to enable children to become “self-directed
and independent,” Schaefer said.
“We want to teach them to do things for themselves,” she

Moreau Montessori
expands elementary
With the commencement
of a new year comes the devel-
opment of a larger elementary
program for Moreau Montes-
sori School.
Director Lorie Steele plans
to expand the elementary
school program, that extends
to the sixth grade, as an alter-
native to conventional prima-
ry school.
“Parents should have a
choice,” Steele said.
Growth of the program
would also provide greater
diversity in the interactions
between older students, Steele
Steele cited an effortless
transition into higher educa-
tion as one benefit for students
who remain in the Montessori
program during elementary
“The children are at a high-
er level when they enter tradi-
tional schooling,” Steele said.
Located in a building capa-
ble of housing several hun-
dred students, Moreau Mon-
tessori School has plenty of
classrooms that older students
could utilize should the need
arise, Steele said.
Though enrolling more stu-
dents in the program is a high
priority for Steele, she also
desires to preserve the school’s
low student/teacher ratio, she
“We don’t want to lose qual-
ity,” Steele said.
A parent-organized steering
committee will likely host an
open house in order to show-
case the elementary program,
Steele said.
“We are a parent-oriented
student body,” she said.

Three-point theme at St. Joseph
St. Joseph Cathedral School plans to con-
tinue to work toward its theme of leadership,
direction and service.
This school year marks a few changes at the
Catholic school.
New teaching staff additions include: Cam-
eron Phillips, fifth grade; Kelly Pierce, first
grade; Beth Loethen, preschool; Meaghan Linn,
music; and Julie Voss, third grade.
An additional classroom has been prepared
to accommodate staff changes.
A couple changes to curriculum include new
social studies books in junior high and new
phonics books in the elementary school.
Spencer Allen, the school’s principal, said
state budget cuts to education don’t affect the
school directly because it is not state funded
in any way. But, the cuts do affect some parish-
ioners and parents if they are employed by the
“We try, as always, to be fiscally responsible
and to keep the cost per student as low as pos-
sible,” Allen said. “Many people do not real-
ize, however, that the Jefferson City Catholic
schools do not charge tuition for active parish-
He said the tuition cost is $375 for an active
member of the parish, as opposed to a few
thousand dollars in tuition in other dioceses.
“This helps out families who are experienc-
ing budget stresses, but still want a Christ-cen-
tered education,” Allen said.
He said one of the school’s goals is to con-
tinue to develop its writing program.
“We will also continue to celebrate the Year
of Faith, set in place by Pope Benedict, which
concludes this year.”

efficient windows in the Incarnate Word Build-
ing, which were funded through a recycling
grant awarded to the school.
There are no changes to the school’s dress
code, but a new “Land’s End” link on the school’s
website allows parents to purchase clothing.
Struemph said as a change to the athletic
program, the athletic committee has imple-
mented a fee for students who participate in
school athletics.
“The fee is charged per sport that the stu-
dent participates,” she said. “The fees will help
provide additional funds for equipment and
various needs of the athletic program.”
She also said minor changes have been
made to the formation of the junior high level
basketball teams.
Struemph said the school will continue to
implement school Wide Positive Behavior Sup-
ports; will focus on providing additional profes-
sional development in the area of special needs,

Trachsel said the school has several goals
for this year, one of them being to look for new
ways to include parents and the community.
“Our goals this year are to continue to

Loose Creek school expanding
Immaculate Conception School in Loose
Creek is starting to see the fruits of its fundrais-
ing labor: The Catholic school is expanding,
thanks to more than $300,000 in pledges from
members of the parish.
The school has seen a growth in enrollment,
causing a need for expansion to accommo-
date the students. The school’s “Brick by Brick”
campaign started last September, with a goal of
about $300,000, which has now been topped.
Phase one of the capital campaign is being
completed, with the addition of two new class-
rooms and a restroom being added to the top
floor above the existing administrative office.
A redesigned entryway will be in place, and a
hallway on the back side of the library will allow
students to move from back and forth from the
original building to the new addition.
Phase 2 will continue next summer with
renovation of the present two small classrooms
and library on the top floor.
The school will also start its upcoming year
with several changes to staff and curriculum,
but no major changes to the athletic program.
The new fourth-grade teacher will be Megan
DeOrnellis, Principal Rita Stiefermann said.
New social studies books have been bought
for students from kindergarten through eighth
grade. Smart Boards are being installed for kin-
dergarten through fourth grade.
Last year, the school had a “fishers of men”
theme. This year, Stiefermann said, the school
will focus on a theme of “building,” including
character building.

ten through third grade going through more
“teacher-directed” instruction.
“It is reviewing many skills every day and
builds on those skills,” Heberlie said.
After third grade, she said the program
becomes more self-taught. She said it’s a very

California R-1 eyes bond issue
A proposed bond issue is on the agenda for
the California R-1 School District for the 2013-
14 school year.
According to Superintendent Dwight Sand-
ers, the bond issue is planned to put before the
voters on the April 2014 ballot.
Plans are to run a two-part bond issue
which will total $4.1965 million, well within the
school’s bonding capacity of $5.1 million.
The first part of the bond issue will address
renovation and additions to buildings, upgrades
and updates in several areas including athletic
facilities, the technology network and building
security to improve student and staff safety.
Proposed renovations include total upgrades
of restrooms for first- through third-grade stu-
dents, locker rooms for the middle school boys
and girls, district-wide HVAC upgrades to out-
dated and inefficient equipment and air condi-
tioning units to cool the high school gym.
The addition proposed at the Owen Street
campus is a covered shelter over the sidewalk
on the west side, where the buses stop between
the elementary and middle school buildings.
Several additions are proposed at the
Buchanan Street campus. To add to classroom
space for the agriculture building, plans are to
build on a 4,000-square-foot addition. To add
to the space available for storage of athletic
equipment storage, a 2,000-square-foot addi-
tion is planned to the weight room building.
Plans are also to pave the gravel parking lot
behind the high school and auditorium.
Proposed athletic facilities upgrades are
planned. They include moving the football
game field to the high school, installing a sprin-
kler system for football field maintenance, alu-
minum bleachers and lighting for the football
field and track. A new concessions building
with restrooms and some storage is planned
for the high school sports area as well as a new

Facilities improve at Westphalia
For the upcoming school
year at Osage County R-3
Schools, Fatima adminstrators
are looking at making some
upgrades to the heating and
cooling within the elementary
school, as well as refinishing
the track.
They also are developing a
new format of formative test-
ing that will be tied in with a
new teacher evaluation model.
Although the Westphalia
district officials said they have
had to make cuts in many plac-
es and pay close attention to
every dollar spent to make the
best decision for students, they
did note passage of a tax levy a
couple of years back allowed
them to build an extension
onto their high school, add-
ing classrooms and enclosing
buildings to make it safer for
District officials said there
are no major changes in athlet-
ics, but the plan is to continue
to work hard and put a very
competitive team out on each
and every playing field.
The only major change dis-
trict officials are looking at for
student conduct is not allow-
ing “yoga pants” or clothing
that is very tight to the body.
This district will be imple-
menting a drug testing policy
in the upcoming year. This will
include athletes, members of
school sponsored clubs, and
students who drive and park in
the parking lot.

the planning stages is a new

high school.
The technology upgrades
are planned for to the network
structure for the entire district.
New building security mea-
sures are planned for the entire
district for staff and student
security and safety including
a new intercom system at the
elementary school.
A separate part of the bond
issue involves energy saving
upgrades. This would be done
through a Guaranteed Per-
formance Contract, since the
improvements are expected
to pay for themselves through
energy conservation. The
Guaranteed Performance Con-
tract part of the proposed bond
issue is $960,0000, within the
bonding capacity of $1 million.
The district expects to save
more than $80,000 each year
through energy conservation.

Tuscumbia adopts new evaluations
The Miller County R-3
School District is moving
toward a new system of teach-
er evaluations that will pro-
vide more specific feedback to
those within the district.
Superintendent Jeff Koonce
said the new evaluation sys-
tem will be on a seven-point
scale that will look at specif-
ic aspects of an instructor’s
teaching methods. For exam-
ple, a teacher will be evaluated
based on how much of the
time students are participating
in the classroom discussion,
he said.
“I’m impressed with the sys-
tem and I’m glad we’re going
to it,” Koonce said. “It’s going
to be a big change.”
Koonce said the new evalu-
ations likely will be difficult
for teachers at first, but it will
improve methods in the long
“As a teacher, it’s going to
be a little scary,” Koonce said.
“But it’s also going to make
them stronger teachers.”
The only other major
change in the district this year,
he said, will be a new policy to
allow high school students to
use cell phones during lunch.
Koonce said the high school
principle wanted to allow stu-
dents the option of using cell
phones during lunch, but only
in the cafeteria where use will
be monitored.
“That way, if they need to
call their parents about bring-
ing something instead of going
up and bugging the office all
the time, he though he would
allow them to do that during
lunch,” Koonce said.

New grading in Versailles
The Versailles school district
is beginning to phase in a new
standards-based grading sys-
Assistant Superintendent
Mike Butt said the elemen-
tary school already is in the
middle of switching to stan-
dards-based grading, where
the traditional letter grades are
no longer used.
“You don’t really have grades,
you just let parents know what
things students have mastered
in the program,” Butt said. “It’s
way more educational for the
parents to see where their stu-
dents are at rather than just
seeing an A, a B, a C.”
In the standards-based grad-
ing system, Butt said students
are rated on a one through four
scale, with three meaning a
student has mastered a sub-
ject and a four meaning they
are able to go beyond what is
expected of them.
He said the hope is to
have it fully implemented in
the elementary school by the
second semester. The follow-
ing year, he said the district
would expand the system into
the middle school and possibly
into the high school after that.
Butt said bringing the sys-
tem into the high school will
be tough as they still have to
have traditional grades for high
school students.

Lincoln opens semester with new leader in place
Kevin Rome started his work June
1 as the 19th president in Lincoln
University’s history.
He succeeds Carolyn Mahoney,
who retired last August after more
than eight years as LU’s chief execu-
Rome’s hiring was announced late
last year.
He came to Jefferson City from
Durham, N.C., where he had been
North Carolina Central University’s
vice chancellor for Student Affairs
and Enrollment Management since
And he’s not looking for an easy
“I think Lincoln is consistent with
many other educational institutions
in the country — we’re all being faced
with many issues around budget,
recruitment, retention, success, and
that’s what we have to focus on,” he
said after his first Curators meeting,
in June.
Lincoln has operated in Jefferson
City since September 1866.
Thought to be the only U.S. col-
lege founded by soldiers, Lincoln was
the dream of soldiers in the 62nd and
65th Missouri Colored Infantry units
who, themselves, had been taught to
read and write while serving in the
Civil War.
They had been forbidden from
getting even a basic education by an
1847 Missouri law prohibiting educa-
tion for slaves or freed African Ameri-
cans, and they wanted the post-Civil
War era to include a school where
that education could be given.
So they pledged about $6,000 total
— for some, the pledge was more
than a year’s wages — and entrusted
that money to their lieutenant, Rich-
ard Baxter Foster, who started Lin-
coln Institute’s classes in a wooden
school building that, before the war,
had been home to Jefferson City’s
first public school.
That building overlooked Wear’s
Creek, on the side of “Hobo Hill”
where the Simonsen Ninth Grade
Center currently sits.

Columbia College
Columbia College-Jefferson
City added a campus admis-
sions manager in August 2012.
Barbara Prenger joined the
team with previous experience
in higher education.
A custodian position also
was added this year, with
Roger Schenewerk accepting
this job.
There are no changes to
physical facilities, curriculum
or policies and rules this year.
However, new degrees this
fall include a Master of Educa-
tion and a Bachelor of Arts in
Public Administration.
Columbia College is a pri-
vate, non-profit institution
that began in 1851 as Christian
Female College, the first wom-
en’s college west of the Missis-
sippi River to be chartered by a
state legislature.
In 1970, the college changed
its name to Columbia College
at the same time it switched
from a two-year women’s col-
lege to a four-year, co-educa-
tional school.
Three years later, Columbia
College started its Adult High-
er Education Division and its
nationwide campuses — with
18 of the 34 campuses around
the country on military bases
— now serving a total of nearly
25,000 students annually.
One of those is the Jeffer-

Aug. 24th — an event will be
free, open to the public and

The second annual Job Fair
will be held in April, and is
expected to grow and serve
more community members

Gov. Jay Nixon announced
during January’s State of the
State address that Missouri
would be offering the Western
Governors University program
this year.
“We’ll be helping Missouri-
ans who never finished college,
who are underemployed and
who need degrees to move up,
reach their full potential,” the
governor said. “It’s designed to
meet the needs of real people
with real lives.
“You can take your tests
after work, on weekends or at
night, after the kids are asleep.
Instead of paying tuition by the
credit hour, students can take
as much coursework as they
want for a flat rate — and how
quickly you earn your degree
depends on how quickly you
master the subject matter: you
advance at your own pace.”
On its web page, WGU
Missouri said it “makes chal-
lenging, nationally recognized
degree programs available to
Missouri residents who are not
able to attend traditional col-
leges and universities.”
The college offers “career-
focused bachelor’s and mas-
ter’s degrees,” with accredited
degree programs in business,
information technology, teach-
er education, and health pro-
fessions (including nursing)
“that are relevant to the needs
of Missouri employers.”
And, the school said, its
online degree program is “flex-
“At WGU Missouri, you will
leverage the power of online
learning to make your program
as flexible as possible. You’ll be
able to balance work and family
obligations while you complete
your studies. And, we’ll never
hold you back — if you have
the time to devote to your stud-
ies, you can accelerate, finish-

credentials that are credible to
both academic institutions and

the web site.
It calls itself an “Online Uni-

Q: I’ve always loved
Danny Kaye’s song “The
Liddle Fiddle (Symphony
of Unstrung Tongue).”
Did he write it himself?
—Mack T., Nampa, Idaho
A: Kaye’s wife, Sylvia
Fine, wrote that
ditty and many of
his others. “My
mom always said
she knew what
he could do before
he did,” says their
daughter, Dena, 66.

Q: I heard Drop Dead
Diva was canceled, but
now it’s back. What hap-
pened? —Kim W., Miami
A: “Social media and the
fans saved the show,”
says Josh Berman, 42,
executive producer of
the Lifetime dramedy (its
fifth season is airing on
Sundays). After the series’
cancellation in January,
Berman saw that Drop

alum, 35, costars in the
raucous comedy The To Do
List, in theaters July 26.
Your new film was written
and directed by your wife,
Maggie Carey. How’d she do?
I was in awe. She hit road-
blocks and moved around
them in her sweet but deter-
mined way. It was inspiring.
After eight seasons on
SNL, what was it like say-
ing goodbye in May? People
use the college analogy
and say you graduate, but
it’s the opposite. They’re my family. It was like leaving home to go to college. It was
emotional, but you can always go back to your family. They’re a part of you.
Is it true that Megan Mullally discovered you? Yeah, she saw me at a comedy show
and called Lorne Michaels. I didn’t know I was allowed to even think about being on
SNL. When I went on the audition, I thought, “This’ll be something I’ll tell my grand-
kids.” And then when I got it, I couldn’t believe it. Comedy was a side project for my
real goal of writing and directing, but that was the thing that took off.
Is it a relief not doing a live show now? Yes! There was never one time I wasn’t
shaking before the show and thinking, “What have I gotten myself into?” I was
always nervous. But the minute it would end, I’d think, “I want to do that again.”
Joan Lunden
Q: In his book Top of the
Morning, Brian Stelter
says Joan Lunden was
forced to leave Good
Morning America in 1997.
True? —Ellen P., Seattle
A: Yes. “The executives
made a decision that
younger was better; they
replaced me and Charlie
Gibson with 30-something
versions of ourselves,”
says Lunden about her
exit, at the age of 46, after
17 years on the
show. “I agreed
to say I was going
on to do other
things, and then
I did them. I think
they lost about
4 million viewers
in a week. It was
a calculated risk
and it didn’t work.”
Daisy Fuentes
Q: I remember when
Daisy Fuentes was a
Telemundo weather girl
in the ’80s. How does
she like being back on
the network? —Yesenia A.,
New York City
A: Fuentes, 46, who
began her career on
Telemundo’s NYC affili-
ate, says her current gig
as cohost of La Voz Kids
(Sundays) “feels like I’m
going back home. I love
The Voice, so when I
had the chance to do it
in Spanish, with chil-
dren as contestants,
I jumped at it.”

There’s never been
a beer time
to eat barbecue
By John T. Edge
t seven in the morning on a recent Saturday,
acolytes stand in line at Franklin Barbecue in
Austin, Tex., where Aaron Franklin smokes
salt-and-pepper-rubbed briskets until they are
coal black and bursting with juice. By 11, when
Franklin takes his first order, the crowd is 100 strong.
And when Franklin hands over the first paper plate of
the day, heaped with meat, beans, and slaw, a throaty
cheer ripples through the crowd, the sort of outburst
more associated with presidents than pitmasters.
Welcome to the glory days of American barbecue.
And not just in Texas. In Tennessee, in the Carolinas, out
in California, and beyond, pitmasters like Franklin carry
forward a style of cookery that predates our republic.
Cooking whole animals over smoldering coals prob-
ably originated in the Caribbean, where the Spanish

encountered it and called it barbacoa. The technique
made its way north and adaptation came fast, as
African-Americans refined Native American and
Caribbean methods. Virginia emerged as an early citadel
of barbecue. When George Washington “went in to
Alexandria to a Barbecue and stayed all Night,” as he
wrote in a 1769 diary entry, he probably partook of a
whole hog, cooked over hardwood coals.
Three centuries of great barbecue followed. Regional
specialties flourished (beef brisket in central Texas;
mutton shoulders in western Kentucky; pork rib racks
in western Tennessee), all of them based on the unhur-
ried notion that, given time and heat, a pitmaster could
coax great flavor from devalued cuts of meat.
And then came the doldrums. By the 1980s, regional
food culture was on the ropes, a victim of Americans’
love of fast-food and chain restaurants. Barbecue fared
no better. Restaurants pulled out their wood-burning
pits and installed gas-fueled smoke boxes. Americans
were sold on the naive idea that great barbecue is built
on bottled sauces.
But a funny thing happened on the way to the drive-
thru. We realized our traditional foods deserve as much
respect as any other cuisine. We woke up to honest fried
chicken. We acknowledged that a well-engineered burger
is a thing of economy and beauty. More to the point,
Americans adopted barbecue as our national folk food.
The worry of past decades—what happens when
real barbecue dies out?—is no longer relevant. The
new question is, how high can barbecue go? Across the
country, restaurants—both the old guard and the new
traditionalist—are serving up the delicious answer.

Among Chicago’s newer
arrivals, I’ll go with Lillie’s Q.
Owner Charlie McKenna is a

was back in business in a
matter of months). And his
barbecue sauce is the best

aron Franklin, who furrows his brow when cooking
but flashes a quick, sweet smile to customers, leads
the new-traditionalist charge. He came by his
credentials honestly. In Bryan, Tex., where he grew
up, his parents ran their own barbecue stand.
Franklin, 35, took a slightly different path: In 2009, he
and his wife, Stacy, opened their first Austin barbecue
spot in a converted trailer. A skilled metalworker,
Franklin cut a hole in the side of the trailer and installed
a wood-burning pit. He spiked his sauce with espresso.
Such developments screamed newfangled.
But he is also committed to the traditional ways.
Depending on the weather and the size of the briskets,
Franklin smokes the behemoths for 12 to 18 hours
over aged post oak—native to Texas—which imparts a
sweet flavor. The result is as old as the marriage of fire
and smoke, and as delicious as barbecue gets.
The South isn’t the only place where new tradition-
alists have taken on barbecue. In New York City,
prolific restaurateur Danny Meyer led the way with
Blue Smoke way back in 2002. More recently, the pace
has picked up. BrisketTown, a postmodern Texas meat
market, opened this year in Brooklyn, selling clods
of beef; it’s become so popular that the restaurant uses
a website,, to alert customers
when the beef sells out. Other noteworthy spots include
Slow’s Bar-B-Q in Detroit—where Texas, St. Louis,
and Carolina styles coexist—and Smoke in Dallas,
where briskets get a coffee rub and pulled pork
sandwiches come with unorthodox blue cheese slaw.
(Check out “Best of the New School” at left for food
critics’ favorites from across the country.)
In Oakland, Tanya Holland of B-Side BBQ has
earned diehard fans even as she takes liberties with
the canon, inventing dishes like smoked mashed yams;
pork ribs rubbed with Caribbean jerk seasonings; and
chili pocked with crunchy burned brisket ends.
Holland, a mellifluous-voiced veteran of the
television cooking show circuit, is not your typical
pitmaster. She earned a degree in Russian language
and literature from the University of Virginia and a
Grand Diplôme from Ecole de Cuisine La Varenne
in Burgundy, France. And when she talks about
barbecue, she’s as likely to speak of how to make
(and smoke) tofu as she is whole hog.
hough southerners appreciate new barbecue styles,
the region is still the epicenter of tradition. Change
here has been more about adaptation than reinven-
tion. In Tennessee, relative newcomer Pat Martin
of Martin’s Bar-B-Que Joint serves open-face pork
shoulder sandwiches on griddle-fried hoecakes—a dish
that’s deeply indebted to the old ways.
Some pitmasters have adopted modernized smokers.
Others have made minor—but no less ingenious—
adjustments. Pitmaster Rodney Scott of Scott’s Bar-
B-Que in Hemingway, S.C., has been smoking whole
hogs since he was 11 years old. When the local health
department began paying closer attention to his shop,
he installed heating coils beneath the deboning table,
to keep his pork at regulation-approved temperature.
Barbecue Crossroads, a new book by Robb Walsh, depicts
a pitmaster who now wears a surgical mask to protect
him from the constant swirl of smoke.

The audience for barbecue in the American South has changed,
too. Daniel Vaughn, author of The Prophets of Smoked Meat,
represents a new generation of connoisseurs who can step from
their cars, sniff the air in the parking lot, and make a good guess at
the kind of wood—hickory, post oak, or mesquite—the pitmaster is
burning for his or her barbecue.
Even the meat is evolving: Now that we know that old- fashioned,
fat-marbled cuts—not the lean pork engineered by modern
industrial farming—make for great barbecue, progressive restaurants
like Birmingham, Ala.–based Jim ’N Nick’s Bar-B-Q are raising
their own pigs, returning the fattier pork our grandfathers cooked
to today’s tables.
New attention has also benefited old-guard pitmasters. “It wasn’t

until people started asking
about it that we realized the
value of what we do,” says
Bryan Bracewell of the
legendary 131-year-old South-
side Market in Elgin, Tex.
n Brownsville, Tenn.,
57-year-old Helen Turner
of Helen’s Bar-B-Q has
dedicated her life to the
perfect barbecue sandwich.
Her restaurant is a metal she-
bang, fronted by a simple sign.
Around back, a screened porch
swirls with heavy wood smoke.
If you can manage two minutes
in the room where Turner
spends hours each day, you’ll
notice two concrete-and-metal
constructions. One is for burn-
ing wood into coals. Another,
fueled by those coals and
topped with a piece of roofing
tin, is the pit where Turner
cooks pork shoulders until they
shade toward burgundy.
Turner is a joyful iconoclast.
When she laughs, she cackles.
When she works, she shames
any man who tries to keep up
with her. And when she con-
structs a sandwich, she crafts
it with architectural integrity:
stacked with pork shoulder,
spritzed with hot sauce, and
capped with sweet slaw.
Since writers and film-
makers began showing up in
search of traditional barbecue,
Turner says, business is up
around 30 percent. Acclaim
for the likes of Helen Turner
is the kind of change that
barbecue can sustain—and
that we should celebrate.

Life in
Halfway through my
sixth decade, I’ve made a
wonderful discovery
about aging: You get to
keep growing
So what changed for me in
the past five years?
It takes a little time to accept
that the world is onto us. Nobel
laureate Toni Morrison said in a
speech at Oberlin College last
year that each of us sees our-
selves at a certain age, frozen in
time, which may explain why my
hair still brushes my shoulders.
Inside, I’m 27. Outside, I’m the
woman of a certain age who
missed the helmet-hair memo.
I admit to occasional hand-
wringing in front of the mirror,
but most of the time I’m having
fun reinventing myself. Magical
thinking helps, as was duly
noted by one of my wisecracking
kids, who will remain nameless
because he is my only son.
“Really,” he said. “You’re
middle-aged? Planning to live to
110, are you?”
When I was 30, I read Gail
Godwin’s novel The Finishing
School. One particular passage,
in which 44-year-old Ursula
advises 14-year-old Justin about
aging, scared me so much that I
wrote it down and carried it in
my wallet for years:
There are two kinds of people …
One kind, you can tell just by look-
ing at them at what point they
congealed into their final selves. It
might be a very nice self, but you
know you can expect no more
surprises from it. Whereas, the
other kind keeps moving, changing.
With these people, you can never
say, “X stops here,” or “Now I know
all there is to know about Y.” That
doesn’t mean they’re unstable. Ah,
no, far from it. They are fluid.
They keep moving forward and
making new trysts with life, and
the motion of it keeps them young.
In my opinion, they are the only
people who are still alive.
Yikes. I vowed to grow like
the weed you can’t kill. This
year, I’m an American water
willow. Last year, I was a hairy
Memories tumble out and
sustain me. The other day I was
dusting a crisscross of Popsicle
sticks my daughter had made in
first grade. “The best mother,”
the faded ink reads.
Immediately, I am a newly
single mom, walking into her
elementary school for open
house. A flock of parents giggle
he moment of midlife
clarity unfolded at 7:12
p.m. on March 7, 2013.
I was fanning my face
with a plane ticket after
racing to the gate for a flight at
Chicago’s O’Hare airport, obliv-
ious to the young man running
to catch up with me. He leapt in
front of me and, in a breathless
stage whisper, said, “Excuse me.
Do I know you?”
Oh, how easily we succumb to
the tug of vanity. My writer’s
heart fluttered with gratitude for
this, a loyal reader. I smiled and
rested a palm on my collarbone.
“Well,” I said, “who do you
think I am?”
The soundtrack in my head
screeched to a halt.
I shook my head. “Connie.”
“Oh,” he said, his shoulders
sinking. His eyes darted from the
top of my head to the toes of my
Tevas. “It’s your hair,” he said.
“You look younger from behind.”
Silence, except for the gasps
from fellow travelers who forgot
to pretend they weren’t listening.
At the precise moment when
I hoped exactly no one knew
who I was, a woman from
Cleveland Heights, Ohio,
leaned in and said, for all to
hear, “I look forward to reading
this essay, Connie.”
Had this happened right after
I turned 50, I might have spent
the entire flight slumped in my
seat clutching a compact mirror
and weeding chin hairs. Five
years into this adventure, I
laughed and posted the man’s
observation on Facebook.

as they lean in to read some-
thing on the bulletin board.
One of them spots me, and
off they go.
Slowly, I approach the
board and recognize my
daughter’s drawing of me.
“My mother is a bit eccen-
tric,” her essay begins. “She
has longer hair than other
mothers. She is getting a
divorce, but we don’t call it
that. Mom says she’s having
a growth spurt.”
What tugged at my heart
then fills it with hope now.
Life was hard, and then it
got better. Repeat. Fifty was
tough, but 55 feels just right.
“I look forward to that
essay,” the woman at the
airport said to me after the
case of mistaken identity.
My, how she egged me on.
A dozen essays are bubbling
up for a blog I’m calling
“Life in the Middle Ages.”
Every Friday I’ll post a new
piece at
We have so much to talk
about. Reading glasses and
puppies. Exercise and falling
in love. Grandchildren and
high heels. Juicing and social
media. Solitude and
activism. Food, too. We
have to exchange recipes at
some point, don’t you think?
Add to this list—you, dear
readers. Because aging is a
team sport, and I can’t win
this game without you. And
being a baby boomer, I
believe everyone should get
the chance to play.

it because I sometimes forget
that 2012 actually happened
to me. It’s a great reminder
that I have much more
work to do. I have to
earn these awards!
Your rst book in
a children’s mystery
series, Randi Rhodes,
Ninja Detective, will be out
in October. What inspired
you to write it?
I’m from humble beginnings,
but my mom taught us that you
could go anywhere in the world
in a book. I’m a huge mystery
buff, and I want to not only
foster curiosity in kids but help
them develop deductive reason-
ing. I worked with a forensic
technician to show techniques
like how to lift a fingerprint
and make a cast of a footprint.
How do you spend Sundays?
If I’m feeling spry, I hop out of
bed and go to church. If I don’t
go to church, I allow myself
to sleep in. Then I catch up
with friends. Sunday is a splurge
day for me: I like to read the
paper and catch up on Scandal,
Modern Family, and Paranormal
Witness on my DVR.
What would people be
surprised to know about you?
I have a great affinity for the
law; I’m always drawn to stories
that have a bit of legalese in
them. Before I could afford a
lawyer, I wrote up all of my
contracts myself. I might have
been a lawyer in another life!
Does coming from a big family
[Spencer has six siblings]
make you want to have a lot of
kids one day?
I definitely want kids. I wanted
three, but I’m in my early 40s
now, so I’d be happy to have
one healthy baby.
Do you date more now that
you’re famous?
Less! The visibility is scary, so I

get it. At this point, I’m not
looking. He has to find his way
to me. I’m totally fine with not
being married or a mom right
now. There was a time when
that kind of stuff depressed me,
but the universe had other
things in store.
Where is your Oscar?
On display on the mantel in
my living room. I have to see
The past couple of
years have been
like something out
of a storybook,” Octavia Spencer
says of the raves she received for
playing Minny Jackson in The
Help. “I feel like Cinderella at
the ball, and I didn’t have to
give my glass slipper back!” The
Alabama native, 41, is bringing
her star power to Fruitvale
Station (in theaters now), which
tells the true story of Oscar
Grant, a 22-year-old Bay Area
resident who was killed by a
transit policeman in a contro-
versial incident on New Year’s
Day 2009. Spencer, who plays
Grant’s mother in the film,
talked to Erin Hill about
children, writing her first book,
and where she keeps her Oscar.
PARADE Did you follow the
Oscar Grant shooting closely
when it happened?
Unfortunately, I didn’t. I
heard about it, but Barack
Obama had just been elected
president, and I was in a
state of bliss because I felt the
country had taken a huge
step forward. I just couldn’t
reconcile it in my brain.
Why did you want to do
the lm?
It focuses on the fact that this was
a young life lost. With the public
recrimination surrounding the
incident, it lets us see Oscar as a
human being. I thought it was the
freshest and the only way to tell
this story and promote healing.

Why is the heart so slow to
follow the mind? The back-
ground: I split from an intimate
love relationship that was
toxic. Post-split, we became
friends, but after a brief
sweet period, I had to end
the friendship, too. I know
this was the right choice,
but I still mourned the loss
of a woman dear to me.
—S. J., British Columbia, Canada
Passionate emotions are
addictive! We are loath to
give them up, even when
they’re accompanied by pain.
The stronger and more
frequent they are, the harder
they can be to relinquish.
How soon we let go—if we
ever do—depends on the
balance between the good
and the bad, plus individual
factors such as self-esteem.
Just because you figure out
what to do doesn’t make you
feel any better about doing it.
