The University of Kansas athletics de-
partment is on a two-year probation im-
posed by Chancellor Robert Hemenway.
At a press conference held July 15, He-
menway, Athletics Director Lew Perkins,
and Rick Evrard, former NCAA enforce-
ment offcial and current partner with
the law frm of Bond, Schoeneck & King,
discussed the details and commented on
the incidents.
“I support the Chancellor’s actions
and thank him for his guidance, leader-
ship and support,” Perkins said. “There is
nothing I want more than to win, but not
at the expense of NCAA rules.”
Three teams have been cited for violat-
ing NCAA rules: football and women’s and
men’s basketball. The violations occurred
before Perkins’ arrival in 2003, a KU Ath-
letics Department press release said.
When Perkins arrived at the Universi-
ty, Drue Jennings, interim athletics direc-
tor, informed Perkins of possible NCAA
rules violations, Perkins said. The next
day Perkins contacted Evrard to investi-
gate these possible violations and advise
the University on NCAA compliance and
infraction matters, Perkins said.
Chancellor Hemenway and Perkins
then decided it best to conduct a full
compliance audit of the University’s ath-
letics compliance program, Hemenway
said. The frm was instructed to inves-
tigate and report any NCAA violations.
It found several violations that it then
included in a self-report and gave to the
NCAA, Hemenway said.
The self-report outlined every violation
in detail and the corrective measures that
would be taken to ensure that the same
mistakes didn’t happen in the future,
according to the Athletics Department
press release.
“We wanted to avoid the appearance
of any bias,” Hemenway said. “Our goal
is to be as transparent as possible.
“We set very high standards at KU and
we are very disappointed that at times we
fell short of those standards.”
Perkins said that the student-athletes,
especially in the case of men’s basketball,
were not to blame. The men’s basketball
violation occurred when donors gave
men’s basketball players gifts of money
and clothes after they had fnished their
eligibility. Perkins said that the donors
were not to blame because they called the
basketball offces and asked if it was OK
and they were told it was.
Former head coach Roy Williams was
notifed of the violation, Perkins said.
“He thought it was OK to and he asked
someone if it was OK and he was told it
was,” Perkins said. “It was a misinterpre-
tation of the rules.”
Evrard said that you can’t provide a
student-athlete, past or present, with a
gift under the rule of extra beneft.
“The rule of extra beneft goes from en-
rollment until they die,” Evrard said.
The probationary period began June
7, a decision made by the University.
During this time the athletics depart-
ment will be under heightened scrutiny,
Evrard said. At this time the NCAA is
reviewing the self-report. It has assigned
an investigator and plans to do follow-
up interviews, Evrard said. A set time
has not been given, he said, for when the
NCAA will decide if it thinks the self-
imposed consequences are enough or if
it thinks further action should be taken.

Three University of Kansas
students lay in hospital beds
in Wichita after a car crash
on the Interstate Highway 35
portion of the Kansas Turn-
pike. The collision happened
outside of Wichita, near El
Dorado, on June 13.
The crash killed Stepha-
nie Hoyt, Kansas City, Kan.
freshman, who was driving
her 2002 Ford Focus. The
three injured in the accident
were Kansas City, Kan., fresh-
men Genevie Gold, Sharon
Wright and Rachel Kannaday.
All passengers in the accident
are 19.
The students were return-
ing from a trip to Texas, and
after reaching Wichita, got
on I-35 south, which would
have sent them back the way
they came. Once the girls re-
alized the mistake, they tried
to cross lanes to reach a ser-
vice area and turn around.
As they merged, their vehicle
was struck by another car and
Hoyt died instantly.
An ambulance took the oth-
er three girls to Wesley Medi-
cal Center, Wichita, where the
hospital listed Gold and Wright
as serious and Kannaday as
critical. As of June 18, the girls’
conditions had improved. The
hospital downgraded Gold and
Wright to fair, and Kannaday
to serious. A nurse at the hos-
pital said no estimated time of
discharge from the hospitals
for the women had been deter-
mined.
All of the women were 2004
graduates of Sumner Academy
in Kansas City, Kan.
Funeral services for Hoyt
were held July 17 at Chapel Hill
Cemetery, in Kansas City, Kan.
Hoyt, who had recently fnished
her frst year at the University,
majored in English.
Chancellor Robert Hemen-
way released a statement on
June 14, calling Hoyt’s death “a
tragic loss,” and said that “our
thoughts and prayers are with
the injured.”

A University of Kansas task force is
investigating several options to decrease
traffc and parking congestion on cam-
pus.
The task force, comprising of stu-
dents, staff, faculty and city offcials, is
considering collaboration between KU
on Wheels and Lawrence Public Transit,
among other options.
After receiving a recommendation
from a recent parking study, David Shu-
lenburger, executive vice chancellor and
provost, appointed the task force in May
to research possibilities to combat the
congestion.
One problem the task force is zeroing
in on is the expansion of West Campus.
Danny Kaiser, assistant dean of students
and chairman of the task force, said cam-
pus congestion would increase because
more students and staff would have to
commute from the main campus to West
Campus.
Kaiser said it was important to begin
exploring ways to manage the congestion
before it increased, because implement-
ing modifcations or a new system would
take at least two years.
Kaiser said the task force was in the
preliminary stages of adapting KU on
Wheels and was concentrating on review-
ing transit systems in other college cities.
The task force is examining fve universi-
ties, including Iowa State, which recently
merged its campus bus system with the
community’s.
The task force will also consider merg-
ing KU on Wheels with Lawrence Public
Transit, Kaiser said. He said it was not
the only possibility the task force was
considering.
Blake Huff, transportation coordi-
nator for KU on Wheels, said there
were both benefits and setbacks to
merging with Lawrence Public Tran-
sit. Benefits would include increased
efficiency, lack of duplicating routes
and receiving federal funding, Huff
said.
Lawrence Public Transit is federally
funded, whereas KU on Wheels is sus-
tained solely by student fees. If the two
systems merged, the cost for students
to ride the bus could decrease, Huff
said.
He said a long-term goal for the
task force was to have KU on Wheels
be free to students, regardless of a
merger.
If KU on Wheels were to merge with
Lawrence Public Transit, the Univer-
sity would have to upgrade all of the
University’s busses. In order to receive
federal funding, the University’s busses
must be in agreement with The Ameri-
cans with Disabilities Act, Kaiser said.
Currently, KU’s busses are not ADA-ap-
proved.
As an alternative, the task force will
evaluate the possibility of collaborat-
ing with Lawrence Public Transit.
Through collaboration, KU on Wheels
may be able to receive some federal
funding while remaining a separate
system. This option would allow the
University to keep its unique position
of having a student-run transporta-
tion system.
“Students have complete control over
the routes right now,” Huff said. “They
decide what is needed.”
Mike Wildgen, Lawrence city man-
ager, said he thought students would
not want to give up their control. He
said the fact that the two systems fo-
cused on two different populations
might be an issue the task force would
need to face.
Kaiser said he expected the task force
to select a model and present it to the
parking commission by the end of Au-
gust.

Fire alarms interrupt exams in Wescoe Hall
At approximately 10 a.m. July 19,
students and faculty in Wescoe Hall
had to evacuate because of a water
pressure fuctuation that set off the
building’s fre alarm. The evacuation
caused the students and teachers to
remain outside the building for about
35 to 40 minutes before local frefght-
ers gave them permission to re-enter
the building.
Mark Bradford, Douglas County
deputy fre chief, said the alarm was
automatically set off by a rise or fall
in water pressure somewhere in the
building.
“It can be triggered by a sudden
change in water pressure, which is
what happened. There was no real
emergency,” Bradford said.
Many students were relieved that
the evacuation changed their daily
school routines, including some of the
Spanish classes held in Wescoe Hall
that were scheduled to have exams
during the time of the evacuation.
“I was supposed to be taking a
Spanish test and now I won’t have to
take it until tomorrow, more time to
prepare is always nice,” Cyrus Dayani,
Overland Park senior, said.

The associaTed press
President Bush chose federal
appeals court judge John G. Rob-
erts Jr. for a seat on the Supreme
Court July 19, delighting Re-
publicans while unsettling some
Democrats with the selection of
a young jurist with impeccable
conservative credentials.
Roberts, 50, would succeed
retiring Justice Sandra Day
O’Connor, who has long been
a swing vote on a court divided
narrowly on issues such as abor-
tion, affrmative action, states’
rights and the death penalty.
The Harvard-educated Rob-
erts learned of his selection in a
lunchtime phone call from the
president, according to admin-
istration offcials. White House
aides arranged for a prime time
formal announcement as they
sought the widest possible audi-
ence for a president making his
frst pick to the court — and the
nation’s frst in more than a de-
cade.
Initial reaction from Repub-
licans was strongly in favor of
Roberts. Sen. Jeff Sessions of
Alabama called him a “fabulous
nominee” and predicted that if
confrmed, he would “bring a
nonpolitical approach to judg-
ing.”
Democratic reaction was
more measured, but initially at
least, offered no hint of a fli-
buster. “The president has cho-
sen someone with suitable legal
credentials, but that is not the
end of our inquiry,” said Senate
Democratic leader Harry Reid
of Nevada. Referring to planned
hearings in the Senate Judicia-
ry Committee, Reid said, “I will
not prejudge this nomination. I
look forward to learning more
about Judge Roberts.”
Bush has said he wants his
pick confrmed and seated on
the bench by the time the court
convenes for its new term in Oc-
tober. Hearings are likely in late
August or early September.
Roberts has already won Sen-
ate confrmation once before —
he was approved in 2003 when
the president named him to his
current post on the U.S. Court
of Appeals for the District of Co-
lumbia Circuit.
Advocacy groups on the
right say that Roberts, a native
of Buffalo, N.Y., who gradu-
ated with honors from Harvard
Law School in 1979, is a bright
judge with strong conservative
credentials he burnished in the
administrations of former Presi-
dents Bush and Reagan. While
he has been a federal judge for
just a little more than two years,
legal experts say that what-
ever experience he lacks on
the bench is offset by his many
years arguing cases before the
Supreme Court.
Liberal groups, however, say
Roberts has taken positions in
cases involving free speech and
religious liberty that endanger
those rights. Abortion rights
groups allege that Roberts, while
deputy solicitor general during
the former Bush’s administra-
tion, was hostile to women’s
reproductive freedom and cite
a brief he co-wrote in 1990 that
suggested the Supreme Court
overturn Roe v. Wade, the land-
mark 1973 high court decision
that legalized abortion.
In his defense, Roberts told
senators during his 2003 confr-
mation hearing that he would be
guided by legal precedent.
While he doesn’t have nation-
al name recognition, Roberts is
a Washington insider who has
worked over the years at the
White House, Justice Depart-
ment and in private practice.
Advocacy groups on the left
and the right already are gearing
up for a ferce lobbying campaign
in advertisements on television,
radio, newspapers and the In-
ternet. The battle is expected to
cost tens of millions of dollars in
spending by private groups.
Roberts was one of fve pro-
spective nominees whom Bush
met with between July 14 and
July 16, according to a senior
administration offcial who
provided details of the selec-
tion.

Lawrence Fire and Medical
is adding another fire station
to the community in order
to combat lagging response
times.
The desired fire response
time for Lawrence is less
than six minutes, said Mark
Bradford, deputy chief of the
department. Currently, the
department meets this time
for 85 percent of its calls
within the city. Bradford said
the department’s goal was 90
percent.
To reach this goal the depart-
ment began building a new sta-
tion, Station 5, at 1911 Stewart
Ave., in March.
Bradford said this location
would shorten response time for
the University and surrounding
areas.
“The amount hasn’t been
identifed yet, but obviously it
will improve time,” Bradford
said.
The University now relies on
Station 1, 746 Kentucky St., or
Station 4, 2819 Stonebarn Ter-
race., for response and assis-
tance.
The Kansas University En-
dowment Association provid-
ed the four acres of land for
Station 5 under the conditions
that Station 5 house a hazard-
ous materials unit and ladder
truck when completed, Brad-
ford said.
Within the deal between the
Endowment Association and
the department, the depart-
ment must pay $1 a year for
the land indefinitely.
“It’s a legal way of giving us
the land for nothing,” Bradford
said.
As part of the KU area, Sta-
tion 5 will blend in with the oth-
er buildings, Bradford said. Sa-
batini and Associates designed
the single-story, 23,843 square
foot station to do so. Bradford
said the $5.4 million station
was paid through municipal
bonds split between Lawrence
and Douglas County.
Bradford said completion of
Station 5 is expected on March
1, 2006.

Wasps plague
Strong Hall
By Patrick ross
editor@kansan.com
special to the KaNsaN
Expansive construction, lon-
ger, laid-back classes and high
temperatures are to be expected
on campus during the summer.
Something else students and
staff should expect during the
summer – at least if they have to
enter Strong Hall – is the ever-
present paper wasp.
Paper wasps nest in the
eaves of Strong Hall in droves
and sometimes the wasps wan-
der into the building and get
trapped, disrupting the offce or
classroom.
“We used to have one who
came around so often we named
it ‘Rover’,” said Molly Tucker,
Prairie Village senior. Tucker is a
student assistant in New Student
Orientation, 213 Strong Hall.
Paper wasps are social in-
sects, according to James Ste-
phen Ashe, professor of ento-
mology and senior curator the
Natural History Museum. Ashe
said they are aggressive.
“They are major predators,
controlling the population of
the insects they eat,” Ashe said.
He said paper wasps eat cater-
pillars almost exclusively and only
the female wasps have stingers.
The wasps tend to nest in the
eaves of buildings, and some-
times in bushes, and have nests
that look like upside-down um-
brellas marked with many holes.
Each nest of paper wasps has a
queen who nurtures her larvae
in the nest. Other females serve
as ranging workers who search
for pollen to eat and caterpillars
to feed the larvae.
“There’s a whole nest of them
outside my window and they
fy around it all the time,” said
Tammara Durham, director of
the Freshman-Sophomore Ad-
vising Center, 156 Strong Hall.
“There’s one at the southwest
door every morning at 7:30 and
he’ll say ‘hi’ to you.”
The wasps come every year,
according to Hollyce Morris,
office manager for New Stu-
dent Orientation. She said
she has seen a few wasps in
the office every year, but more
now that the office has moved
from the first floor to the sec-
ond floor.
Durham said she would call
Facilities Operations if there
was an infestation, but that was
not usually necessary.
Shannon Draper, senior ad-
ministrative assistant for the
Freshman-Sophomore Advising
Center, said if it’s just one wasp,
a shoe works.
Morris said she had called
Facilities Operations about the
wasps, but had not heard back.
Mike Lang, Landscape Man-
ager for Facilities Operations,
said his staff deals with outside
insect problems. But he said the
paper wasps weren’t a concern.
“We usually leave them alone
unless there’s a problem,” Lang
said.

Dole Institute. The summer lec-
tures will serve as a test market
for the Dole Institute. The possi-
bility of future summer lectures
could depend on the attendance
for this series.
The summer lecture series
will begin at the Dole Institute
on July 21.
The three-part lecture series
will be the frst held at the Dole
Institute during the summer se-
mester.
“The goal of this series is to
help accomplish our mission of
encouraging civic and political
participation. These speakers
will tell stories that refect that
mission,” said Bill Lacy, director
of the Dole Institute.
Hal Wert, author of “Hoover,
The Fishing President,” is the
frst speaker of the summer.
Wert’s book focuses on the hu-
man aspect of Herbert Hoover.
The second speaker of the
summer is Craig Shirley. He
wrote “Reagan’s Revolution,”
which looks at the 1976 presi-
dential campaign of Reagan.
Shirley will speak on July 28.
Donna Moreau rounds out
the speakers on Aug. 4, with a
discussion of her book “Wait-
ing Wives.” The book is about
families of U.S. soldiers in Viet-
nam who lived on military bases
while the soldiers fought.
Lacy said the Dole Institute
did not choose these speakers
for a specifc theme, but were
chosen for their differences. He
said the variety of topics could
draw all types of people.
The summer lectures will be
held in the Simons Media Room
at the Dole Institute with chairs
set up in a semi-circular fashion
to encourage an open discus-
sion.
All of the lectures will be held
at 7:30 p.m. and will feature
question and answer sessions.
After the lectures, the authors
will sign copies of their books.
The lectures are free and open to
the public.

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — An
unrepentant Eric Rudolph de-
clared July 18 that abortion
must be fought with “deadly
force” as a judge sentenced him
to life in prison for setting off
a remote-controlled bomb at
an abortion clinic that killed
an off-duty police offcer and
maimed a nurse.
“Children are disposed of at
will,” the 38-year-old Rudolph
said, jabbing the air in a speech
that echoed a rambling mani-
festo he issued in April when he
pleaded guilty to four bombings
in all, including the blast at the
1996 Atlanta Olympics. “The
state is no longer the protector
of the innocents.”
Rudolph’s fery statement
came as his victims confronted
him in court, branding the anti-
abortion extremist a cowardly
“monster” and recalling how
their lives were devastated by
the 1998 clinic bombing in Bir-
mingham.
“It gives me great delight to
know you are going to spend
the rest of your life sitting in an
8-by-12 box,” said the clinic’s di-
rector, Diane Derzis.
Under a plea bargain that
spared him a death sentence,
Rudolph received two life sen-
tences without parole for the
Birmingham bombing.
Rudolph spent more than
fve years on the run in the
North Carolina wilderness,
employing the survivalist tech-
niques he learned as a soldier.
He was captured in 2003 while
scavenging for food behind a
grocery store.
When it was his turn to speak
July 18, Rudolph angrily lashed
out at abortion and the Birming-
ham clinic.
“What they did was partici-
pate in the murder of 50 chil-
dren a week,” he said. “Abor-
tion is murder and because it is
murder I believe deadly force is
needed to stop it.”
Rudolph faces sentencing
Aug. 22 in Atlanta for the Olym-
pic bombing, which killed one
woman and injured more than
100 other people, and for 1997
bombings at an abortion clinic
and a gay bar in Atlanta.

The Kansas City Ad Club
honored two University of Kan-
sas fne arts students for their
marketing designs.
The organization honored se-
nior design students, Jake Steele
and Bryan Hale, with their an-
nual Omni Awards. A luncheon
was held July 19 to honor the
two students.
Kuhn and Wittenborn Adver-
tising hosted the luncheon to cel-
ebrate a partnership between itself,
Coterie Theatre and KU fne arts
students that has led to award-
winning marketing material for
the Coterie Theatre in Kansas City,
Mo. While the collaboration bene-
fts the Coterie Theatre, it also gives
the students an opportunity to gain
practical, hands-on experience.
Steele, winner of the bronze
Omni award for his Jekyll and
Hyde poster he made during the
class, said the class provided him
with a great learning experience.
“It was kind of a crash course
on working with a client for the
frst time and it taught us how
to work quickly and effciently,”
Steele said.
Steele said it offered real
world experience.
Hale did not attend the lun-
cheon, but won the Gold Omni for
his Stinky Cheese Man posters.
Whitey Kuhn, CEO and pres-
ident of Kuhn and Wittenborn
Advertising, began the partner-
ship between his agency and
Coterie Theatre in 1999. Coterie
Theatre is a non-proft organi-
zation children’s theatre. Kuhn
graduated from the KU School
of Fine Arts in 1971 and said he
had always wished for an oppor-
tunity like this to be available to
him when he was in school.
“In 2002 I got the idea to set
up a collaboration with Coterie,
ourselves and KU because we
had an annual project ideal for
this situation,” Kuhn said.
Kuhn and Wittenborn Adver-
tising approached the School of
Fine Arts and Coterie Theatre
and both were excited about it.
The students selected for the
class get the opportunity to sit down
with Kuhn and Wittenborn and
discuss ideas for promotional post-
ers for the Coterie Theatre plays.
Over 30 students have participated
in the last four years, Kuhn said.
Throughout the entire pro-
cess, George Kauffman, design
director at Kuhn and Witten-
born, makes trips to the Uni-
versity to meet with faculty and
students. He helps students
with ideas and once approved,
they are designed and some of
the projects are entered in the
Omni Award Show, Kuhn said.

WASHINGTON — “Star
Wars” fans know all about Ta-
tooine, Luke Skywalker’s home
planet, whose two suns glare
down on a vast desert.
Now comes an even more
extraordinary, real-life sight: a
newly discovered giant planet
with three suns wheeling over-
head.
The Jupiter-sized world is
149 light-years (about 879 tril-
lion miles, just next door for as-
tronomers) away from Earth in
a triple-star system in the north-
ern constellation Cygnus, or the
Swan.
Maciej Konacki, a planetary
scientist at the California Insti-
tute of Technology in Pasadena,
reported the sighting in this
week’s edition of the British sci-
entifc journal Nature.
“With three suns, the sky view
must be out of this world, liter-
ally and fguratively,” Konacki
said.
About 150 extrasolar planets
have been discovered in the past
10 years. This is the frst time a
planet has been found in a clus-
ter of three star systems.
The main star of the trio,
named HD 188753, is slightly
larger than our sun. But it would
look enormous to an observer
on the planet, which whirls
around its host star every three
and a half days at a distance of
about 4 million miles. Our sun,
93 million miles away, looks
much smaller.
The temperature on the plan-
et is estimated to be a scorch-
ing 1,340 degrees Fahrenheit,
Konacki said in an e-mail.
He used the 32-foot-wide
Keck One telescope on the
Mauna Kea volcano in Hawaii
to make his discovery. He de-
tected tiny wobbles in the mo-
tion of HD 188753 as the gravity
of its companions yanked it this
way and that.
The discovery of the planet
challenges current theories
about the formation of giant
planets around other stars.
Most astronomers think such
planets form in huge disks of gas
and dust around young stars.
But a gang of three stars would
destroy most of the disk before
the planet could form, Konacki
said.
HD 188753 is “a conun-
drum” for theorists, two Ger-
man astronomers, Artie Hatz-
es and Gunther Wuchterl,
wrote in a commentary piece
in Nature. “This planet should
not exist.”
But it does.

The Jackpot Saloon & Music Hall, 943 Massachusetts St., is of-
fering brand-new drink specials, including $3 Bulleit Horsefeath-
ers Mondays and Wednesdays. The drink is made with Bulleit
brand bourbon, ginger ale and garnished with a cherry.
Louise’s West
is a small
but cozy bar
located on
7th St. near
Arkansas
St. Some of
the specials
include $2.50
schooners and
$2 Bloody
Marys.
Even during
the summer,
Louise’s Down-
town, 1009 Massa-
chusetts St., packs
in customers for
its Tuesday and
Thursday schooner
specials.
Many bars in Lawrence offer specials on domestic drafts such as the one seen here.
Sunday Bloody Sunday

The hair of dog can be your best friend. Nurse
yourself back to health at Louise’s West, 1307 W.
7th St., with the sweet deal of $2 Bloody Marys.
Not a tomato lover? Not a problem. Louise’s West
offers $3 schooners and $2 Boulevard pints so
that everyone can drink and be merry. Pop into
Jackpot Saloon & Music Hall, 943 Massachusetts
St., to try a new drink, Bulleit Horsefeather, an
old-fashioned drink of Bulleit brand bourbon and
ginger ale, to match the saloon atmosphere.
Super Saturday

Two is the magic number, where $2 can get you
practically anything, everywhere. Harbor Lights,
1031 Massachusetts St., boasts $2 Rolling Rocks
and Henry T’s Bar & Grill, 3520 W. 6th St., has $2
any bottle. The Cross Town Tavern, 1910 Haskell
Ave., serves $2 Schnapps shots while Liquid, 806
W. 24th St., lays out $2 double wells. And Mad
Hatter Bar & Grill, 623 Vermont St., has $2 big
beers and $1 draws.
Food-Friendly Friday

Dinner and drinks start the weekend off right. For
tasty food and jumbo drinks, head to Bambino’s
Italian Café, 1801 Massachusetts St., for $3 fsh-
bowl margaritas. Quinton’s Bar & Grill, 615 Mas-
sachusetts St., also offers fantastic food and a spe-
cial on 32 oz. margaritas for the price of $3.50.
Stay and watch the restaurant turn into a night-
club when it opens all four of its bars. Enjoy the
weather with its covered two-story, heated patio.
O.D. Thursday

Thursday reigns as king in the mass consumption
category, with almost all establishments contending
to be the ultimate dealmakers. Leaders among these
bar battles are Louise’s Downtown, 1009 Massa-
chusetts St., and The Cadillac Ranch, 2515 W.
6th St. Louise’s, with its lack of lighting and $1.75
domestic schooners, is the perfect place to put on
your beer goggles and pull a coyote ugly. (For those
uneducated, a coyote ugly is when you wake up
the next morning with someone so hideous you’d
rather gnaw off your arm than risk waking them
up.) Besides the hook-up value, Louise’s offers a
spacious place to mingle either inside or outside
with its heated smoking area. Another gold mine of
goods is the Ranch. Here you can put $3 premium
u-call-its and $1.50 Jagerbombs down your gullet
while running into at least three buddies from high
school.
Pitcher Perfect Monday

Everyone deserves some relaxation after a manic
Monday of class or work. Jet Lag Lounge, 610 Flori-
da St., and Johnny’s Tavern, 401 N. 2nd St., offer the
perfect retreats. For only four dollars you and your
buds can split a pitcher at either establishment. Jet
Lag provides a plentiful mix of people on Mondays,
but there’s never a wait for another pitcher or lines
to the bathroom. Johnny’s Tavern also possesses the
down-home charm of Lawrence with a variety of pa-
trons. Its best Monday appeal is its half-priced pizza
after 5 p.m.
Margarita Wednesday

Nothing helps turn the heat up on hump day like tequila. The
best bets for low prices but high quality margaritas are at The
Sandbar, 117 E. 8th St., and either of the El Mezcals, 804 Iowa
St. and 1819 W. 23rd St. The Sandbar sports $2 8 oz. margaritas
and $2 Tecate cans while entertaining customers with its under-
the-sea atmosphere. Perfect for Jimmy Buffet fans, The Sandbar
performs a nightly showat 10 p.m. called “The Hurricane” where
mermaids dance on the bar and shower patrons with confetti.
With a giant fsh tank full of exotic fsh in the background, drink-
ers can shoot darts or play Foosball. El Mezcal competes with its
$2.49, 16 oz. lime margaritas and authentic Mexican cuisine.
As college students we face copious challenges. Not
only are we required to pick and prepare for our fu-
ture, but we also have to juggle outside factors such
as work, family and friends. If we are lucky enough
to catch a break and fnd some downtime, we’re con-
fronted with the harsh reality of a low-balanced bank
account. So, what’s a student working with meager
means to do? Drink on the dime. Below is a day-by-
day guide to specials around Lawrence to assist you in
your consumption needs.
U-Call-It Tuesday

The Jazzhaus, 926 1/2 Massa-
chusetts St., steps up the average
$1.50 U-call-it specials by including
premium liquors. It’s hard to beat a $1.50
Crown and Coke. Besides the spectacular spe-
cial, The Jazzhaus serves as a safe zone for a
frst date. If the candlelit, relaxed atmosphere
doesn’t relieve your jitters, the savings will.

Each week, Mr. College Answer Person
offers wisdom and advice to those seek-
ing the “inside word” on the college ex-
perience. Submit your questions to mis-
tercollege@kansan.com.
Dear Mr. College Answer Person,
What other sports are popular around
here besides basketball and how do I
sign up and get involved with teams and
clubs at KU?
Andy Spalding, St. Louis freshman
The two primary ways to participate
in recreational sports at the University
of Kansas are through intramurals and
sports clubs. In intramural sports KU stu-
dents compete against other KU students
right here in Lawrence, but in sports
clubs, members generally travel and
compete against other universities. Some
sports clubs, such as martial arts clubs,
are more oriented toward instruction and
personal development within the sport.
Based on the number of participants,
basketball is the most popular intramu-
ral sport. Softball and fag football are
second and third in popularity, said Kurt
Schooley, assistant director of recreation
services. The University offers 28 different
intramural sports, which are categorized
as single, dual, or team sports. Dodgeball
will be a new addition to the list this fall.
Almost all intramural sports are free of
charge; you simply need to form your team
and sign up. Golf and bowling are the ex-
ceptions: Because they use off-campus fa-
cilities, a modest registration fee is required.
Schooley said many students consulted
with their residence hall director or resident
assistant to organize teams on their foors.
He said another good way to fnd a team
was to just show up to the games — often
teams are in need of a couple extra players.
To sign up your team you can either
register online at recreation.ku.edu or in
person at the Student Recreation Fitness
Center, 1740 Watkins Center Drive. Reg-
istration will start during the frst week
of school.
Team sports sign up is on the bulletin
boards near the gymnasium and raquet-
ball courts. To sign up for individual and
dual sports, ask for a registration form at
the welcome center at the Rec Center,
where you swipe your KUID.
During Hawk Week, the week before
classes start, the clubs will set up booths
on the lawn of Strong Hall to offer infor-
mation and recruit members.
In order to practice with a club, all you
have to do is sign a waiver, but regular
members are required to pay dues. Kroner
said that many clubs fundraise to defect
costs and also have access to equipment
you can check out and use for free.
A good resource for information about
clubs and intramurals is at recreation.
ku.edu. You can visit this Web site to fnd
calendars and dates, rules for the sports
and a contacts page with club offcers and
dues info. Here you can also fnd links to
the sports clubs’ own Web sites.
You can also fnd job openings for intra-
mural offciating on the Web site, said Jus-
tin Sloop, intramurals program manager.
He said that students were allowed to of-
fciate and participate in the same season.

You’re sitting there in class,
trying your best to pay attention
to your professor drone on at
the end of a full day of classes,
and your eyes start to close. You
nearly get whiplash as you’re
startled awake when your chin
hits your chest.
This is not an uncommon
scenario for college students
who don’t get enough sleep at
night. According to Steven Hull,
medical director of somniTech
Inc. and director of sleep dis-
orders research for Vince and
Associates clinical research in
Overland Park, college students
should get eight to ten hours of
sleep each night.
For those students who aren’t
quite meeting the minimum re-
quirement, power naps can help.
Bob Whitman, director of the
KU Medical Center, said taking
a short nap not only makes up
for not gettng enough sleep at
night, but can help increase pro-
ductivity.
“Studies have
proven that naps can help you
learn better,” he said. “After a
nap, people become more alert
and can concentrate better.”
Whitman said power naps
shouldn’t be longer than 20 to 30
minutes so that you do not enter
the REM (Rapid Eye Movement)
stage of the sleep cycle.
“If you wake up from a deep
sleep you feel groggy,” he said.
“If you take shorter naps you
wake up with a refreshed feel-
ing.”
If you’re having problems
napping, Hull said you probably
just aren’t tired enough. He said
caffeine and other stimulants
can keep you from getting in a
quick nap. Hull said naps can
be benefcial, but you should
try to get enough sleep at
night so that you don’t
need to nap during
the day.
Not getting
enough sleep at
night can have
both short
and long
term effects
Hull said,
i ncl udi ng
an in-
creased risk of heart attack and
symptoms that can mimic de-
pression.
“It can cause everything
from excessive daytime sleep
to headaches, concentra-
tion problems and mood
swings,” he said.
Hull said brief naps
don’t eliminate cumu-
lative sleep debt. If you
can’t get to sleep early,
you should shift your
sleep schedule to wake
up later to make sure you
get enough sleep, he said.
Dawn Filkins, Lawrence
junior, said she took
at least 3 to 4 naps a
week.
“Naps
are an awe-
some thing,”
she said. “They’re a
good way to get refreshed
and ready for the day.”
If you are going to take naps
during the day, Whitman said
you should be sure to set a timer
or ask a friend to wake you up.
“Understand that when the
alarm goes off, you get out of
bed,” he said.
Hull said a little siesta
is most effective during
the late afternoon.
“The Mexi-
cans
got it
right,” he said.
“Your body slows down
between two and four in the af-
ternoon.”
Naps have proven to be so
benefcial that Hull said trans-
meridian pilots are encouraged
to take them.
Filkins said naps are defnitely
not just for kindergartners.
“It usually takes a little while
to get awake and going,” she
said. “But they’re always re-
freshing.”

BAGHDAD, Iraq — Gunmen
killed at least 24 police, soldiers
and government workers in Iraq
July 18, and an Iraqi general said
about 50 suspected insurgents
were captured in the frst days
of a new security operation in
Baghdad.
The latest bloodshed oc-
curred in a series of small-scale
ambushes and shootings, as
Baghdad received a respite July
18 from the wave of suicide
bombings that killed 22 people
in the embattled capital the day
before.
A car bomb targeted U.S.
and Iraqi troops, however, in
Rawah, 175 miles northwest of
Baghdad, witnesses reported.
At least one person, believed to
have been a civilian, was killed,
the witnesses said.
The deadliest attack was in
the western Baghdad district of
Khadra, where eight policemen
died in a gun battle with insur-
gents, police said. It was unclear
if the insurgents suffered casual-
ties.
Gunmen also killed at least
fve other police offcers, includ-
ing a colonel, in attacks around
the capital, police and hospital
offcials said. Three civilian gov-
ernment employees were killed
in separate ambushes in Bagh-
dad, police reported.
A policeman died in a shoot-
out between insurgents and se-
curity forces just north of Bagh-
dad in Taji, police said. And
in Samarra, 60 miles north of
Baghdad, gunmen killed a po-
lice colonel, an Interior Ministry
offcial and three Iraqi soldiers
in a series of attacks.
In the north, gunmen killed
two Iraqi soldiers in eastern
Mosul and assassinated Abdul-
Ghani al-Naimi, whose brother
is a member of the Iraqi parlia-
ment.
Also July 18, the military said
a U.S. Marine died in a non-hos-
tile incident on Sunday at a U.S.
base in Ramadi. At least 1,766
members of the U.S. military
have died since the beginning of
the Iraq war in March 2003, ac-
cording to an Associated Press
count.
The violence came as Iraqi
forces reported a new offen-
sive against the insurgents in
Baghdad. An Iraqi general, who
spoke on condition of anonym-
ity for security reasons, told The
Associated Press that Operation
Thunder began last week on
the west side of the Tigris River,
which divides the city.
He said about 50 suspected
insurgents, including two Syr-
ians, were captured in the open-
ing days of the operation, which
will be expanded over the next
few days.
On a visit to Berlin, the chair-
man of the Joint Chiefs of Staff,
Gen. Richard Myers, said a re-
cent spike in suicide bombings
wouldn’t derail the drafting of a
constitution or progress toward
democracy. But he warned of
more violence ahead.
“Every major milestone has
been met. That will continue,
in my belief, to happen,” Myers
said.
Security has deteriorated
steadily since Prime Minister
Ibrahim al-Jaafari announced
his Shiite-dominated govern-
ment April 28. Most of the in-
surgents are Sunni Arabs, who
enjoyed considerable prestige in
Iraq during the rule of Saddam
Hussein.

a Shiite mosque killing more than 90 people.

DETROIT — If you think
your Acura Integra is fast and
gorgeous, you aren’t alone. The
car model was one of the most-
stolen last year — likely the tar-
get of street racers.
According to a report re-
leased Tuesday, the 1999
Acura Integra coupe was the
single most swiped vehicle
in 2004, while Integras from
other model years weren’t far
behind.
The list was released by Chi-
cago-based CCC Information
Services Inc., an insurance in-
dustry tracker of theft and ve-
hicle damage. It compares loss
claims to the total number of
registered vehicles.
The 2002 BMW M Roadster
was No. 2 on the list and the
1998 Acura Integra was third.
Other vehicles in the top 10 in-
clude the 1991 GMC V2500, the
2002 Audi S4 and the 2004 Mer-
cury Marauder.
Jeanene O’Brien, CCC’s direc-
tor of marketing services, said an
upsurge in street racing may be
responsible for the appearance
of the Integra and other fast cars
on the list.
“We can never say for sure
why a car’s stolen, but we can
look at the data and make
some interesting assumptions,”
O’Brien said.
She said the Integra, which
was replaced by the RSX in
the 2002 model year, also may
be targeted for its parts. Acura
is Honda Motor Co.’s luxury
brand, and the Integra engine
can ft into other Hondas, for
example.
O’Brien said it’s difficult to
overstate the value of vehicle
parts. A 2000 Honda Accord
LX cost $22,365 when it was
new but would cost $68,065
if it were built entirely from
Honda replacement parts, she
said.
Pop culture’s love affair
with vehicles like the Cadil-
lac Escalade sport utility ve-
hicle also is driving up thefts
because of perceived value,
O’Brien said. A used Esca-
lade can still command up to
$49,000, she said. Limited-
production vehicles like the
Mercury Marauder — which
was made for only two years
— also are targets.
“Never before in our society
have we had such insight into
movie and music stars and their
cars and homes, and that drives
up preferences,” O’Brien said.
Acura spokesman Mike Spen-
cer said Acura was aware of the
theft problem and made several
changes to the Integra during its
lifetime, including adding more
secure locks and immobilizer
systems and installing door pan-
els that were harder for thieves
to break into.
“Unfortunately, if somebody
really wants to steal your car,
they’re going to steal it,” Spen-
cer said. “That’s pretty hard to
avoid.”
The average age of a stolen
vehicle in 2004 was 6.6 years,
down slightly from 2003. The
average age of all registered ve-
hicles on the road in 2004 was
7.9 years.
Vehicles from the 1997 mod-
el year were most susceptible
to theft last year, followed by
model years 1996, 1999, 1995
and 1998. Acura was the most-
stolen brand, followed by Hum-
mer, Land Rover, Daewoo and
Honda.
CCC, which provides soft-
ware and information services to
insurers and repair shops, com-
piles its report with loss claims
from more than 350 property
and casualty insurers in North
America. The annual report is
based on total losses for vehicles
that are stolen and not recovered
or stripped to the point of being
a total loss.

LOS ANGELES - Actor Colin Farrell is suing a
woman for allegedly trying to distribute and proft
from a sex tape he says the two recorded with the
agreement it would never be made public.
The lawsuit fled July 18 seeks monetary damages
as well as a temporary restraining order and injunction
prohibiting the sale or other use of the videotape.
Farrell, 29, accuses Nicole Narain of trying to dis-
tribute the tape through an intermediary. The two
had an intimate relationship 2 1/2 years ago and
both agreed that the 15-minute tape that shows the
couple having sex would be jointly owned by them
and would remain private, according to the suit.
Narain could not be reached for comment. A
call to a phone number listed for her showed the
number had been disconnected.
A message left for Farrell’s attorney was not im-
mediately returned July 18.
The lawsuit also accused the 31-year-old wom-
an of working with the owner of an Internet por-
nography business and contacting the news media
about the tape.
The lawsuit said the release of the videotape would
irreparably harm Farrell’s reputation and career.
Farrell, who has starred in “S.W.A.T” and “Al-
exander,” and is slated to appear in “The New
World” and “Miami Vice,” has been named one of
the sexiest men alive by People magazine.
He has a son with model Kim Bordenave.

Cameron Diaz is shown in this March 20 photo. Two forensic
experts testifed July 18 that a signature on a model release form
involving topless photos of Diaz appeared to be forged, using an
autographed publicity photo of the actress. Photographer John
Rutter is on trial in Los Angeles, accused of trying to blackmail
Diaz over the pictures he took in 1992, before she was famous,
and attempt to sell them back to her in 2003 for $3.5 million.

Brad Pitt is seen during a news conference
at the International Film Festival in Cannes,
southern France, on May 13, 2004. Pitt has been
diagnosed with a mild case of viral meningitis
and was released from the hospital on July 13,
his publicist said. Pitt, 41, had checked himself
into Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles
on July 11 complaining of fu-like symptoms.
He went home July 13, publicist Cindy Guagenti
said. “The actor is at home and doing well,” she
said in a statement.
LONDON - Jude Law pub-
licly apologized to his actress-
fancee, Sienna Miller, express-
ing his “sincere regret” over an
affair with one of his children’s
nanny.
“Following the reports in
today’s papers, I just want to
say I am deeply ashamed and
upset that I’ve hurt Sienna and
the people most close to us,”
the 32-year-old actor said in a
statement Monday to the British
Press Association.
“I want to publicly apologize to
Sienna and our respective families
for the pain that I have caused,”
said Law, star of “Alfe” and “The
Talented Mr. Ripley” flms.
The nanny was identifed in
the newspaper reports as Daisy
Wright, 26.
Law, who divorced fashion
designer-actress Sadie Frost in
October 2003 after a six-year
marriage and three children,
had no further comment.
The publicity frm that repre-
sents Miller told The Associated
Press the 23-year-old actress
had no comment on Law’s state-
ment.
When Miller arrived at Wynd-
ham’s Theatre in London’s West
End on July 18, where she was
performing in “As You Like It,”
it appeared she wasn’t wearing
her engagement ring, the Press
Association reported.
Miller was Law’s co-star in
the remake of “Alfe.” The cou-
ple became engaged on Christ-
mas Day 2004.
Earlier this year, Miller said
she and Law were in no hurry
to tie the knot. “I’m not going to
get married this year,” she was
quoted as telling reporters in
February. “There’s no rush, we’re
just happy to be engaged.”
Law earned Oscar nomina-
tions for his roles in “The Tal-
ented Mr. Ripley” and “Cold
Mountain.” His screen cred-
its also include “Sky Captain
and the World of Tomorrow,”
“Closer” and “The Aviator,” all
released in 2004.

Alumnus recalls London attacks
Editor’s note: Mark Brad-
shaw is a 2001 KU graduate
now living in London and at-
tending graduate school. His
neighborhood was one of many
affected by the July 7 transit
bombings in London. This is
his response to the events and
his recounting of the reactions
of students in London.
London mornings are always
noisy. I live in the Bloomsbury
neighborhood of central Lon-
don, a crossroads for tourists,
offce workers, and students
like me. In July, it’s light by fve
o’clock, and one begins to hear
the steady rumble of rolling lug-
gage on its way toward the Tube
or a train and on its way to an
airport. Cleaners and street
sweepers start to work soon af-
ter, followed by delivery trucks,
and construction crews fre
up the jackhammers by eight
o’clock.
Those are the sounds of a
normal day. Today was dif-
ferent, louder than most. The
city’s morning chorus was in-
terrupted by a great loud deto-
nation. It sounded like thun-
der, friends tell me. We live on
Mecklenburgh Square, about
six blocks from Tavistock
Square, where one of London’s
signature red, double-decker
buses had its top blown off
during rush hour.
I don’t remember hearing the
explosion myself, maybe because
my room faces in the wrong
direction or maybe because I
was still half-asleep, a sluggish
student still preparing to meet
his day in the library stacks. I
took notice a few minutes later,
though, when the sirens started,
several different wails, all keen-
ing close at hand. “Good god,” I
thought to myself, “what’s going
on?” There are several hospitals
and a police station nearby, but
their various calls are normally
distinct; this was a general on-
slaught of alarm.
I live in a residential college
that houses several hundred
graduate students who attend
more than a dozen London
universities. It’s a neighbor-
hood within the neighborhood,
flled with scores of familiar
faces from strange lands as well
as some places closer to home.
When my telephone began ring-
ing in the moments following
the morning’s frst unwelcome
noises, it was a friend within the
college, a young newlywed from
Texas, who broke the story for
me: “Did you hear?” she asked.
“There are bombs in the Un-
derground. Russell Square and
King’s Cross have both blown
up.”
The London Underground is
the city’s subway system, a net-
work of trains that connects
to airports, commuter trains,
light rail, and a feet of bus-
es. It’s the primary means by
which people get to and from
work each day, it runs right at
its capacity during peak times,
and the morning rush sees it
at its busiest. To attack it is to
target a broad swath of people.
Its passengers include bank-
ers and busboys, suit-wearers
and sightseers. The two Un-
derground stations my friend
named weren’t the only ones
hit, but they are the two closest
to us, just blocks from our col-
lege. Close to home.
I tried to pull up the BBC Web
site. It was slowed to a crawl, of
course. I picked up the phone to
dial outside the college. It was
in a fugue, not surprisingly. I re-
member how these things go. Af-
ter fring off a quick e-mail to tell
my family I was fne, I grabbed a
sweater – yes, in England, even
in July – and I decamped to my
Texan friends’ apartment just
around the block. They have ca-
ble news and an Internet phone
to the U.S., both useful things
on a day of surprises.
We monitored reports and
made calls, corralling facts and
accounting for friends. As Amer-
ica woke up, we called home to
let people know that we were
awake, too.
One friend had his German
class cancelled. Another was
detained for hours in the base-
ment of a nearby salon while po-
lice inspected a parked van they
suspected of concealing another
bomb. I watched as the physi-
cians – all here to study, not nor-
mally to practice – headed out to
local hospitals, to aid however
they could with casualties.
And that’s how this morn-
ing’s unwelcome noises have af-
fected the people I see. I know
there are dozens dead, but even
being so near by, I only see
them through the television’s
eye. Many more are maimed or
wounded, lightly or severely,
and still more have been given
good reason to be afraid. But
I think that sort of fear turns
quickly to anger and resolve.
From my time in Washington
following September 11, I don’t
expect the life of the city to snap
back to routine overnight, but
I’m confdent that London, just
like my friend the future doctor,
will press right on.

22 THE UNIVERSITY DAILY KANSAN JULY 20 - JULY 26, 2005 NEWS
BY ASHLEY MICHAELS
amichaels@kansan.com
KANSAN STAFF WRITER
Brandon Holtz has been
named assistant media relations
director for soccer and baseball
at the University of Kansas.
Holtz was an intern for the
Bluejays’ media relations de-
partment at Creighton Universi-
ty. He was the main contact for
soccer and baseball at the uni-
versity for the 2004-05 season,
which is what he will cover at
the University of Kansas.
The position was previously
a paid, undergraduate intern-
ship and each year a new person
was hired to fill the spot. Last
year Adam Quisenberry was the
sports information director in-
tern for the two sports. This year
the media relations department
made the decision to make it a
full-time position.
“We felt we needed consis-
tency in that department as op-
posed to a different face each
year,” Theisen said.
With the recent success of the
soccer and baseball teams, there
is a need for a full-time position,
said Chris Theisen, assistant
athletics director for media rela-
tions.
The Kansas soccer team was
the Big 12 champion and ad-
vanced to the second round of
the NCAA Tournament in the
2004 season. The baseball team
won more than 30 games last
season and made it to the Big 12
tournament for the second time
in three seasons under head
coach Ritch Price.
Since his arrival at Kansas in
2003, Lew Perkins, athletics di-
rector, has added more than 10
new positions to the Athletics
Department.
Theisen said Perkins is imple-
menting his own system chang-
es.
“Over time you see where you
need to do things,” he said. “I
think that’s just part of it, part
of the way he manages, and you
can’t do it instantly, so it’s being
done over time.”
Head women’s soccer coach
Mark Francis said he was ex-
cited about the new face in the
athletics departments because
it would help bring in new
players.
“Brandon is going to help
us immensely, especially in re-
cruiting,” Francis said. “He will
help get the word out about our
program and our accomplish-
ments. Hopefully there will
be more media coverage and
more interesting feature sto-
ries. Right now he is working
on expanding the media guide
and making it better, which
will be good for the recruiting
process.”
Francis considers the perma-
nence of his new position an
acknowledgement of the suc-
cess of the soccer and baseball
teams.
“It’s a commitment from
the Athletics Department and
Lew Perkins that they recog-
nize the success we’ve had,
and baseball, too,” Francis
said.

Members of the Big 12
media were kind to Kansas
cornerback Charles Gordon
and linebacker Nick Reid. Both
were named to the media’s
pre-season all Big 12 first
team.
Gordon and Reid were
both first-team media selec-
tions at the conclusion of
last season. Gordon led the
conference in interceptions
with seven and Reid was
second in the conference in
tackles with 109. Reid is the
leading returning tackler in
the conference.
Gordon and Reid will anchor
a Kansas defense that im-
proved drastically over the
course of last season.
The media also named
Oklahoma running back Adrian
Peterson pre-season offensive
player of the year and named
Texas defensive lineman
Rodrique Wright pre-season
defensive player of the year.
The Jayhawks will open
their season Sept. 3 against
Florida Atlantic at Memorial
Stadium.

Armstrong cherishes
last legs of his Tour
t tour de france
By John Leicester
The AssociATed Press
PAU, France — As Lance Armstrong
closes in on a seventh straight Tour de
France title, the high mountains safely
behind him and the fnishing straight
almost in sight, just one thing is miss-
ing: a daily stage win in his fnal Tour.
In all of his record six victories,
Armstrong always won at least one in-
dividual stage. Not this year. But he’s
hoping to set that straight later this
week, in the time trial before the fnal
ride into Paris on Sunday.
Even Armstrong, who doesn’t like
to tempt fate by claiming a win in ad-
vance, acknowledges that “the odds
are good” that he’ll have the winner’s
yellow jersey — the famed maillot
jaune — on his back when he retires
from cycling at the end of the race.
Completing the last of three days in
the Pyrenees on July 19 left just a most-
ly fat stage, two medium mountain
stages and the time trial for Armstrong
to negotiate before the fnal victorious
pedal up Paris’ Champs-Elysees.
Armstrong’s main rivals tried testing
him on two rigorous climbs during the
16th stage on July 19 from Mourenx
to Pau. But he brushed off the chal-
lenges, easily matching their uphill ac-
celerations to defend his comfortable
lead.
“The amount of support is great this
year,” he said. “If there’s 1 in 100 that
are negative, don’t dwell on that, think
of the 99 that are positive, and remem-
ber this Tour, remember this last week,
remember these last days.
“It will never be like this again for
me,” he added. “I will never be in yel-
low again, and that’s a special thing,
so I need to cherish those moments.”

t big 12 football
Missouri
mourns,
moves on
By ALAn scher ZAgier
The AssociATed Press
COLUMBIA, Mo. — University of Missouri
football coaches and players attended the funeral
of Aaron O’Neal, 19, in his hometown of St. Lou-
is on July 18. A day later, they were back at work,
quietly resuming the summer drills that were sus-
pended indefnitely after O’Neal’s July 12 collapse
on Faurot Field.
About 30 players attended
the 7 a.m. voluntary workout,
which was supervised by Mis-
souri athletic trainers and con-
ditioning specialists rather than
football coaches, who are barred
from such sessions under NCAA
rules.
The session was closed to re-
porters, but players could be seen
through the gates of Memorial
Stadium doing light stretches, full-feld sprints
and agility drills.
O’Neal’s teammates — not Coach Gary Pinkel
— decided to quickly move ahead in preparation
for the fall season, a team spokesman said. Fall
practices offcially begin in early August, with the
frst game in Kansas City on Sept. 3 against Ar-
kansas State.
“It was the team’s decision,” said athletics
spokesman Chad Moller. “They were really anx-
ious to try to get back to somewhat of a normal
routine. This is the frst step.”
Players approached after the morning workout
declined comment, and Pinkel’s offce referred
questions to Moller.
Also missing July 19 were any signs of
O’Neal’s death, including the flowers, sympa-
thy cards, banners, autographed footballs and
other remembrances left behind at a makeshift
shrine at the stadium’s front gate in the days
after he died.
Moller said the items were removed to guard
against theft or rain damage.
