Kansan staff writer
As three of her best friends lay in hos-
pital beds in Wichita, Stephanie Hoyt’s
parents buried their daughter. Over 300
people attended the funeral of the Uni-
versity of Kansas freshman, her father,
Lanny Hamp, said.
“The number of people there showed
how many people she touched,” Hamp
Hoyt and her friends, went to Texas
“to see a little of the U.S.” This was a last
chance for Hoyt and her best friends to
do something together, Hamp said.
On the way back the girls took the
wrong on-ramp, sending them south in-
stead of north. Once they realized the
mistake, Stephanie went to cross two
lanes to turn around, when they were
struck by another vehicle.
The collision killed Stephanie instant-
ly. Her three companions sustained seri-
ous injuries and were taken by amulance
to Wesley Medical Center in Wichita,
where one is currently listed as fair and
the other two have been released.
Hoyt was born in Olathe on Jan. 3,
1986. Her mother, Theresa, remarried
when Hoyt was two, and Lanny and The-
resa raised Hoyt in Kansas City, Kan.
Hamp described his daughter as the
“type of person that never needed the
limelight, and someone willing to help
other people.”
Hamp said when Hoyt’s mother decid-
ed to go back to school and get a degree
in nursing, Hoyt took her mother’s place
in the home. She cooked, cleaned and
tried to help her mother with the every-
day things she could not do, Hamp said.
That work ethic also translated into
her scholastic and professional lives,
throughtout her life, Hamp said.
She worked through high school and
college at the Cracker Barrel and was
paying her own way through college,
Hamp said. She graduated from Sumner
Academy with a 4.2 grade point average,
and after a year at Drake University, Des
Moines, Iowa, came to the University.
After declaring English as her major,
Hoyt planned on attending law school,
Hamp said.
Hoyt was one of fve children and “she
was the one who never gave me any trou-
ble,” Hamp said.
Hoyt is survived by her father, Lanny
Hamp and her mother, Theresa Hamp.
Other survivors are four brothers: Sgt.
Lanny Hamp Jr., Fort Benning, Ga.; Au-
gust Hamp, Camp Lejeune; Richard Al-
len Hoyt, of the home; and Kelly Hamp,
of the home.

Lawrence police offcers closed down
the Moon Bar, 821 Iowa St., after discov-

The Moon Bar is the same nightclub
where former Kansas forward J.R. Gid-

May 19. The altercation resulted in Gid-
dens getting stabbed in the right calf.
Ruiz said he thought his bar’s recent

Ruiz said. “I feel that I am being

In a makeshift studio, on the

Art, photographers and volun-
teers are digitizing the Spencer
Offcial at the museum, locat-
ed south of Strong Hall, decided
to digitize its collection several
years ago, said Sofa Galarza Liu,
museum collection manager and
database project co-manager.
Digitizing involves captur-
ing images of the art and stor-
ing them in a computer. The
reason for digitizing is that
the museums collection is far
too large to put on display,
Liu said. She said the museum
wanted the digitized collec-
tion to be on the University of
Kansas’ digital library online.
Eventually the museum wants
to put the collection on the In-
ternet, but Liu said there was
not a set date for that project
to begin.
Viewers and cataloguers will
be able to search in the collec-
tion by artist/maker, date, physi-
cal subject (i.e. type of photo or
painting) and material.
The process can be long and
costly, more than $100,000 dol-
lars, Liu said. To try and combat
some of the cost, the museum
applied for a $149,000 grant
from the Institute of Museums
and Library Services two years
ago, she said.
The museum’s staff has cap-
tured and catalogued more than
8,000 items, Liu said.
When the staff began the digi-
tization process they thought
the museum contained approxi-
mately 25,000 items, said Bill
Woodard, director of commu-
nications for the museum. But
after they began capturing im-
ages they realized the museum
contained about 26,000.
The main reason for digitiz-
ing the collection is not only to
allow people to see more of the
collection, but to capture fragile
or decaying items, Liu said.
Certain items, such as photo-
graphs and textiles, can only be
in the light for a certain amount
of time without sustaining dam-
age, Liu said.
Students and faculty will not
have to wait for the process to
be completely fnished to view
photos online because the mu-
seum’s staff will post at different
times as they progress, Liu said.
The University population will
be able to view some of the re-
cently captured photos this fall,
Liu said.
The collection contains items
ranging from paintings, photo-
graphs, prints, textiles and other
types of art.

July marks the 15th an-
niversary of the Americans
with Disabilities Act’s passage.
According to the ADA Web site,
the act ensures equal opportu-
nity and civil rights to people
with a broad range of disabili-
ties. Similarly, the University’s
Disability Resources offce
provides a number of services
to assist students with a broad
range of disabilities through-
out their time at KU.
Mary Ann Rasnak, director
of KU’s Disability Resources,
said although the offce has
been at the University for
seven years, the University
provided services to disabled
students beforehand.
“KU has a history of trying
to meet the needs of people
with disabilities before it was
legislated,” Rasnak said.
Rasnak said the Americans
with Disabilities Act changed
public perception of what con-
stituted a disability.
“ADA and the public in-
formation surrounding that
educated everyone about the
invisible disabilities,” she said.
The act defned a disabled
individual as a person with a
physical or mental impairment
that limited their activities, a
person with a history or record
of impairment, or a person
who was perceived as having
an impairment. Rasnak said
the act had largely been a tool
for public information.
She said it raised awareness
about invisible disabilities such
as psychological, medical and
learning disabilities along with
the more visible physical and
mobility impairments.
Rasnak said the University
had installed door open-
ers and curb cuts to make
campus more accessible to
people with mobility issues.
She said a special committee
reviewed the plans for each
new building on campus that
was either built or remod-
eled to ensure accessibility
and ADA compliance. Dis-
ability Resources distributes
a map of campus that dis-
plays accessible entrances,
restrooms and floors in each
building on campus as well
as a barrier-free route from
Sunnyside Ave. to Jayhawk
Blvd. Rasnak said mobility

as the shuttle rose from
its pad at 10:39
a.m., climbed into a hazy mid-
summer sky, skirted two decks
of clouds and headed out over
the ocean in the most scruti-
nized launch in NASA history.
Two chase planes and more
than 100 cameras documented
the ascent from every possible
angle to capture any sign of
fying debris of the sort that
doomed the last fight.
Some two hours later, af-
ter Discovery had settled into
orbit, Discovery commander
Eileen Collins radioed back:
“We know that the folks back
on the planet Earth are just
feeling great right now, and
our thanks to everybody for
all the super work that’s been

promising to bring the astro-

The fuel gauge that thwarted

ago worked properly before
and during the liftoff, and the
countdown was remarkably
smooth. If the sensors had act-
ed up before liftoff, the space
agency had been prepared to
bend its safety rules to get the

As people relax during the
spring and summer, they un-
knowingly make themselves
more prone to theft.
“We do see more when the
rather is nicer,” said Sgt. Dan
Ward of the Lawrence Police
Department “People leave their
garage doors open and the
windows down on their cars,
so it’s easier for people to take
Theft and burglary are the top
two most common crimes that
occur at the University of Kansas
said Chris Keary, assistant chief
for the KU Public Safety Offce.
The difference between theft
and burglary is whether the
thief has a legal right to be in
that place, Keary said. He said
theft was taking something from
somewhere the theif was al-
lowed to be, while burglary oc-
curred where the theif had no
legal basis or right to be.
“Thefts occur when and
where the opportunity is pre-
sented,” Keary said. “Generally
when people don’t watch their
items...people give others the
opportunity to take things.”
Keary said the best way to
protect belongings was to use
security devices and measures
already on hand. Lock your
doors, even when at home,
watch your items and make sure
to take them with you.
“Don’t assume it will be there
if you leave it,” Keary said.
Ward said one had to be care-
ful about keeping valuables out
of sight.
“If you lock your car but leave
a purse in plain view, people are
more apt to break a window to
get it and run the risk of being
seen and heard, because they
know what is there,” Ward said.
Victims of theft or burglary
should always report it, Keary said.
“It’s not their fault some-
body took advantage of it – you
should be mad about it,” Keary
said. “You should be mad that in
this society, you have to watch
your stuff.”
If criminals are caught they
can be charged with either a mis-
demeanor or a felony, depending
on the items stolen. Anything
valued less than $1,000 would
constitute a misdemeanor, any-
thing valued more than $1,000
would be a felony, Keary said.
Filing a report does not guar-
antee that you’ll get your prop-
erty back. Keary said items were
generally not recovered. He said
students should record serial
numbers and other important
information from their valuables
so they had it if it was stolen.

A private owner has offered

Kansas Biological Survey — a

raise $500,000 to buy it. So far,
the University has raised about
$250,000, and the survey has
bought 40 acres.

preme Court will hear argu-
ments Dec. 7 about whether the
Kansas death penalty is consti-
tutional, and Attorney General
Phill Kline plans to be there to
make the state’s case.
Kansas’ is one of four death
penalty cases scheduled be-
fore the nation’s highest court
when it begins its new term in
October. Seven men who had
been sentenced to die in Kansas
might yet face execution if the
court upholds the law.
In December, the Kansas Su-
preme Court declared the 1994
death penalty law was fawed
because of how it said juries
should consider the evidence
for imposing a death sentence.
Kline appealed, and the high
court agreed in May to take the
“He has been preparing ever
since the court said it would
hear the case and has a defnite
game plan. He will be well pre-
pared to represent Kansas,” said
Whitney Watson, spokesman for
the attorney general’s offce.
Watson said this will be Kline’s
frst time to argue before the
justices, although he appeared
before them in October when
the court heard arguments in an
Arkansas River water rights case
between Kansas and Colorado.
At issue in the death penalty
statute is the section that states
if the evidence for or against im-
posing the death sentence seems
equal, the jury must choose
The Kansas court disagreed,
saying when the evidence seems
equal, the defendant should ben-

cruel and unusual punishment
and violates defendants’ rights

Earlier this year, legislators
could have fxed the faw by
rewriting the law. But they felt
that doing that could discourage

YORKTOWN, Va. — A lawyer for a
death row inmate told jurors July 26 his
client was so limited mentally that he
couldn’t get a driver’s license and was cut
from the football team because he didn’t
understand the rules.
A prosecutor, though, said Daryl At-
kins’ mental retardation claim was a ploy
to avoid execution.
“None of his teachers, friends or fam-
ily believed Daryl was mentally retarded
until he was facing the death penalty,”
Commonwealth’s Attorney Eileen Addi-
son said during opening statements.
Defense lawyer Mark Olive portrayed
Atkins, 27, as someone who struggled
through life because of his limited mental
“He was teased unmercifully as a child
because of mental slowness,” Olive said.
A jury was seated earlier July 26 for a
trial that will determine whether Atkins,
whose case led the Supreme Court to bar
execution of the mentally retarded, is
himself retarded.
The prosecutor’s reference to the fact
that Atkins had been sentenced to death
prompted one of his attorneys, Joseph
Migliozzi Jr., to seek a mistrial, but Judge
Prentis Smiley Jr. denied the motion.
Some 100 witnesses could be called
during the trial, which was scheduled to
last two weeks.
Among the frst witnesses were At-
kins’ mother and two former teachers, all
of whom testifed that Atkins struggled
with schoolwork. Addison said, though,
that school records show Atkins simply
did not do the required work and began
drinking and using marijuana in middle
school, and it was “a steady decline from
that point on.”
Atkins was 18 when he and William
Jones killed Airman 1st Class Eric Nes-
bitt, 21, for beer money. Nesbitt was
abducted outside a convenience store,
forced to withdraw money from an au-
tomated teller machine and driven to a
desolate road, where he was shot eight
Prosecutors said Atkins was the trig-
german. A plea agreement was reached
with Jones, who testifed against Atkins
and received a life sentence.
Three years ago, Supreme Court jus-
tices sided with Atkins’ lawyers in ruling
that execution of the mentally retarded
is unconstitutionally cruel, but did not
decide whether Atkins had the disability.
The determination of whether inmates are
mentally retarded was left to the states.
York County Circuit Judge Prentis
Smiley told prospective jurors July 25
that their only assignment would be to
decide Atkins’ mental capacity.
“This case is going to be unique in the
annals of judicial history,” he said.
If the jury determines that he is mental-
ly retarded, he will be sentenced to life in
prison. Otherwise, he will be executed.
An IQ of 70 or less is required to be
considered mentally retarded in Virginia,
which also takes into account social skills
and the ability to care for oneself.
Atkins, who did not fnish high school,
scored 59 on an IQ test in 1998, but re-
corded 74 and 76 on more recent tests.
Virginia law, however, also requires
that mental retardation be determined
by age 18. Atkins’ IQ was not tested as
a youth.
The ASSociATed PreSS
SHARM EL-SHEIK, Egypt — Inves-
tigators identifed an Egyptian as a pos-
sible suicide bomber in the terror attacks
at this Red Sea resort and were searching
July 26 for his suspected Islamic militant
cohorts — the frst break in the probe.
The development came as two security
offcials revealed that authorities received
information of an imminent terror attack
in Sharm el-Sheik several days before the
bombings July 23. But they thought ca-
sinos would be targeted, so security was
increased around those sites, not hotels.
The offcials would not say where the
tip came from but said headquarters in
Cairo told security forces in Sharm to be
on alert and to step up measures around
key locations.
It appeared authorities chose the
wrong possible targets to watch, said one
of the offcials in Cairo. Both offcials are
close to the inquiry and spoke on condi-
tion of anonymity because the informa-
tion was not authorized for release.
Security was heightened around casi-
nos on the theory they would be attacked
because Israelis come to Sharm for gam-
bling, which is banned in their country.
The government has sacked the heads
of security in North and South Sinai
provinces, an apparent sign of the fail-
ures that may have allowed the assault
on one of Egypt’s most closely guarded
tourist towns.
Instead of going after casinos, bomb-
ers in two explosives-laden trucks target-
ed hotels. One plowed into the Ghazala
Gardens reception area, leveling the
lobby. A second headed for another ho-
tel but got caught in traffc and blew up
before reaching the target. A third explo-
sive device, hidden in a knapsack, went
off minutes after the Ghazala blast at the
entrance to a beach promenade. As many
as 88 people were killed.
Police had been studying two bodies
found at the Ghazala as possible bombers
because the remains were dismembered.
DNA tests identifed one of the bodies as
that of Moussa Badran, an Egyptian resi-
dent of Sinai who police said has links to
Islamic militants.
Initially, offcials said the body was
that of Badran’s brother Youssef. The of-
fcials, who spoke on condition of ano-
nymity because the release of the details
had not been authorized, did not give a
reason for the change in identifcation.
The second body from the Ghazala is
still being tested. A third body in Sharm’s
Old Market, the site of the other truck ex-
plosion, is also being examined as a pos-
sible bomber.
Moussa Badran — a resident of Sheik
Zawaid, a town near el-Arish in northern
Sinai — fed the family house soon after
a terror attack last October at two other
Red Sea resorts, his stepmother told The
Associated Press.
Many relatives — including women —
were arrested after Badran’s disappear-
ance and tortured, and another brother
remains in custody, said the stepmother,
Mariam Hamad Salem al-Sawarka.
Hours after the Sharm blast, police
took DNA samples from Badran’s father
and siblings and from other families with
relatives who have gone into hiding since
the Taba attacks, al-Sawarka said. She
said Youssef Badran moved to another
town near Sheik Zawaid several years
ago and she had not seen him since.
Investigators have been exploring pos-
sible links between the July 23 attacks
and those in October against hotels in the
resorts of Taba and Ras Shitan, near the
Israeli border. Those earlier attacks killed
34 people, including many Israelis.
Israel warned Israelis a year ago not to
visit Egypt, and especially Sinai, because
of the possibility terrorists would attack
tourist sites. No Israelis were known to
have died in the Sharm bombings, al-
though Israeli media have said there were
a number of Israelis there at the time.
Security forces detained thousands of
people after the October attacks — main-
ly from the north Sinai area.
This time, across Sinai, security forces
took in 70 people for questioning on July
26, bringing to 140 the number ques-
tioned since the July 23 attacks. Police
detained an unspecifed number of peo-
ple overnight in the villages of Husseinat
and Muqataa near the Gaza border.
Security offcials in el-Arish said that,
based on information from interroga-
tions, they were looking for two other
people from the area, Moussa Ayad Sulei-
man Awda and Ahmed Ibrahim Hamad
Ibrahim, in connection with the Sharm
Investigators were concentrating on
the theory that the bombings were carried
out by Egyptian militants, but were not
excluding the possibility they received in-
ternational help, the security offcials in
Cairo said.

Whether it be old high school
sports injuries, the early onset of
old age or injury-related, we all
have aches and pains, yes, even
in our early 20s.
So how do you get rid of
them? Some anti-infamma-
tories have been taken off the
market and going to a chiro-
practor to have them jerk and
pop your vertebrae back into
place doesn’t sound like much
fun either.
Some chiropractors are now
practicing a newer method
of treatment called Activator
methods technique. Chiroprac-
tors differ on their opinions
about the Activator method,
but many choose it as their
only method. The Activator
method uses a hand-held de-
vice called an Activator adjust-
ing instrument to gently adjust
problem areas.
The Activator method and
manual manipulation method
are the two methods chiro-
practors use, and they are
both aimed at sublaxations.
Sublaxations are misalign-
ments in the body that alter
nerve flow, which results in
body malfunction that can
take many forms, said Colleen
Auchenbach, chiropractor at
Advanced Chiropractic, 3300
W. 15th St., who practices
only the activator method.
Both manipulation and Ac-
tivator methods find the un-
aligned areas and realign them
so the body can function at its
optimal level. The difference
is that the Activator method
does it in a more comfortable
manner, said Auchenbach.
“It is a low force, gentler tech-
nique that helps a wide scope of
people,” Auchenbach said. “I
see better long-term results with
the Activator method.”
The comfort of the Activator
method attracts Valerie Macon,
Lawrence resident.
“It’s a gentler, more comfort-
able method,” said Macon. “It
gently puts you back in align-
ment without twisting or jerking
your body.”
It would seem that this is
the way to go, but James Timo-
thy Brady, head chiropractor
at Brady Chiropractic, 1104 E.
23rd St., disagrees.
“A majority of cases beneft
more from manipulation as op-
posed to Activator,” Brady said.
“But it depends on the patient,
each patient is different.”
Brady also said he thought
the activator method was a
technique used by chiroprac-
tors who weren’t as profcient
in hands-on manipulation,
which used to be referred to as
jerk and pop.
“It takes more effort, en-
ergy and skill to do manipu-
lation than it does to use the
activator method,” Brady said.
“When you find a skilled chi-
ropractor who is proficient in
manipulation you get greater
As for the safety involved in
manipulation, Brady said that
it was safer to do manipulation
than to go for a walk, if you had
a chiropractor who was practic-
ing safely.
One thing both chiroprac-
tors agree on is if you fnd the
right doctor, either method can
be successful, it just depends on
the patient.

Interns have now settled into
their summer experiences, and
far too many are beginning to
feel oppressed and mistreated.
Interns who see themselves as
victims of injustice need to get a
grip. They don’t realize that be-
ginning as a photocopying, data
entry, fax-sending, mail deliver-
ing and list-checking maven is
the road to internship success.
Internships are so important
to college students because ex-
perience in the real world is
considered essential to develop
the skills employers want. Com-
panies hire close to 50 percent
of their interns for full-time po-
sitions according to a 2004 sur-
vey conducted by the National
Association of Colleges and Em-
Internships are not the only
way to get experience. A real
job in the summer might provide
more of an education depend-
ing on the student’s interest.
Flipping hamburgers may seem
like a dead end job. Just don’t
tell that to current McDonald’s
President, Jim Skinner, who
started that way at 15 in Sydney,
Australia, and became a store
manager in short order (no pun
Students should have realistic
expectations about their sum-
mer job or internship. Students
also need to understand that
they have to pay their dues as in-
terns. I had an intern once who,
when asked to make a copy of a
contract by a paralegal in a law-
yer’s office, quit. Presumably, he
thought he should be writing the
contracts, not copying them.
Contrast that with another
student of mine who took a
job with a public interest lobby
group in D.C. He told me that all
the interns were sitting around
complaining about having noth-
ing to do. He volunteered to do
all the copying that he could
during the first two weeks. The
next week he was put in charge
of a major campaign for the or-
ganization, and the complainers
were working for him. Students
who told me that they were giv-
en nothing to do, failed.
Whether getting a job or an
internship, students should see
themselves as apprentices. They
are making a bargain with the
organization to serve as an ap-
prentice. That bargain requires
them to pay for their education
with their services.
Students have real bargaining
power to learn more if they have
something to offer their boss. In
addition to a hard worker who
has a good attitude and good
people skills, supervisors are
looking for skills in short sup-
ply. They include Web design;
Microsoft Access, Excel and
Publisher; and writing skills.
These kinds of skills get the
attention of supervisors and can
lead to an experience way above
Writing, editing and proofing
as well as facility with Word and
Excel are skills in short supply
throughout the real world. They
can be used to leverage a so-so
job or internship into a life-
changing experience. The next
time you hear whining interns,
say to them, “ask not what your
internship can do for you but
what you can do for the people
who have been so kind to give
you a chance.”

UNITED NATIONS — Real estate mogul Donald
Trump should bid on a United Nations renovation
contract if he thinks he can do the job cheaper and
better than anyone else, U.N. Secretary-General Kofi
Annan said.
Trump told a U.S. Senate hearing last week that
the United Nations would commit a boondoggle of
immense proportions if it goes ahead with its plan to
renovate the outdated United Nations secretariat, a
project it says will cost about $1 billion.
Trump predicted that if the U.N. continues with its
proposal, the cost will balloon to $3 billion. And he
said that he could do the job for $700 million.
“If that’s the case I’m sure he will get the contract
and so I would encourage him to bid,” Annan said
July 25.
U.N. officials said their plan for the renovation was
sound and expressed skepticism at Trump’s claims.
Christopher Burnham, a former Department of
State official recently appointed to oversee the build-
ing project as the U.N.’s undersecretary-general for
management, told the same Senate hearing the United
Nations would run “a lean, mean operation.”
The 38-story U.N. headquarters is dangerously out
of date. It has no sprinkler system, is packed with as-
bestos, and loses about 25 percent of the heat pumped
into it in the winter.
AMMAN, Jordan — On his first visit to the
Middle East, Ricky Martin declared he would
try to change negative perceptions of Arab
youth in the West.
“I promise I will become a spokesperson, if
you allow me to, a spokesperson on your be-
half. I will defend you and try to get rid of any
stereotypes,” the 33-year-old singer told young-
sters from 16 mainly Arab countries at a youth
conference on July 25.
The children, ages 14 to 16, expressed con-
cern about being labeled as “terrorists” by the
“I have been a victim of stereotypes. I come
from Latin America and to some countries, we
are considered `losers,’ drug traffickers, and
that is not fair because that is generalizing,”
said Martin, who was born in Puerto Rico.
“Those comments are made out of ignorance
and we have to sometimes ignore the ignorant,
but we also have to educate the ignorant. You
have me here as a friend,” he said.
Martin, who is a United Nations Children’s
Fund goodwill ambassador, said he wanted to
get to know the youth and their cultures bet-
He said he planned to do a concert tour of
the Mideast and North Africa, including Jor-
dan and the Palestinian territories, tentatively
scheduled for May 2006.
Martin, whose hits include “She Bangs,”
“Shake Your Bon-Bon” and “Livin’ La Vida
Loca,” posed for photos with fans, at one point
draping over his shoulders a traditional Arab
kaffiyeh headscarf with the slogan “Jerusalem
Is Ours” written in Arabic on it.
“I had no idea that the kaffiyeh scarf present-
ed to me contained language referring to Jeru-
salem, and I apologize to anyone who might
think I was endorsing its message,” Martin
said in a statement released July 25 by his New
York-based publicist, Ken Sunshine.
“My role is entirely humanitarian, and I will
continue to promote the elimination of stereo-
typing anyone – be they from Latin America,
the Middle East, or anywhere across the globe,”
he said in the statement.
Martin attended the silver jubilee of the Arab
Children’s Congress set up 25 years ago by Jor-
dan’s Queen Nour, King Hussein’s widow, to
promote creativity, peace, cross-cultural under-
standing and tolerance. He said he would like
to promote a similar youth congress for his na-
tive Latin America.

DENVER — Some military veterans and law en-
forcement offcials are angry about a Web site pro-
moting Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn’s comedy
“Wedding Crashers.”
To win the affections of attractive bridesmaids in
the movie, two fun-loving partiers pretend to be Pur-
ple Heart recipients.
New Line Cinema’s movie Web site includes a
fake, paper Purple Heart to cut out, with the spoof:
“Carrying a Purple Heart in your jacket guarantees
you attention, admiration and plenty of free booze.”
“I challenge the producer of that movie to go to
Walter Reed Hospital and walk through the ward and
see if he still wants to print out a fake Purple Heart,”
said Thomas Cottone, Jr., a special agent with the FBI
who enforces a federal law that prohibits wearing,
manufacturing, buying, selling or trading a Medal of
“Talk to some of these people who don’t have legs
anymore and see how funny they think that movie
New Line Cinema, which produced the movie, did
not return a phone message.
A bill introduced in the U.S. House of Representa-
tives Friday would expand federal law to allow pros-

SANTA FE, N.M. — Actress and activ-
ist Jane Fonda says she intends to take a
cross-country bus tour to call for an end to
U.S. military operations in Iraq.
“I can’t go into any detail except to say
that it’s going to be pretty exciting,” she
Fonda said her anti-war tour in March
will use a bus that runs on “vegetable
oil.” She will be joined by families of Iraq
war veterans and her daughter.
They plan to return to the Santa Fe
area, where she was promoting her book,
“My Life So Far” on July 30.
Prompted by a question from the audi-
ence, Fonda said war veterans that she
has met on a nationwide book tour have
encouraged her to break her silence on
the Iraq war.
“I’ve decided I’m coming out,” she
Hundreds of people in the audience
cheered loudly when Fonda announced
her intentions to join the anti-Iraq war
“I have not taken a stand on any war
since Vietnam,” she said. “I carry a lot of
baggage from that.”

Freshman volleyball standout
Emily Brown was one of 14 girls
selected to train with the U.S.
Women’s Volleyball Junior

The training session was
July 13 through 18 and
took place at the Olym-

Colorado Springs, Colo.
Brown, a 6-foot-2 right

Baldwin City, was invited
to attend the training ses-

and the other 13 girls from
around the United States, are
considered alternates for the

The team is coached by Bri-

per game and 2.12 kills per game,
trains as a right side/outside hit-

ing camp Brown was trained as
the team’s setter, a position she
wasn’t used to playing.
“I was honored to be invited

NEW YORK — Larry Brown,
former Kansas coach of the 1998
NCAA championship team, has
been offered a contract by the
New York Knicks to become the
franchise’s 22nd head coach, his
agent said July 26.
“An offer has been made, but
that doesn’t mean a contract has
been completed. Nothing has
been finalized,” said Joe Glass,
Brown’s longtime agent.
With the 64-year-old Brown, who
has coached seven NBA teams and
two college teams, the likelihood of
a snag can never be underestimated.
“We’re making prog-
ress, and we’re continuing
to talk at this point,” Knicks
spokesman Joe Favorito said.
Glass was not sure when con-
tract negotiations might wrap up.
“Too hard to say,” said Glass,
80, whose son has been an agent
for several NBA players. “There’s
no time factor as far as we’re
concerned. We’ll get it done as
soon as we get it done.”
Brown had dinner the night of
July 25 with team president Isiah
Thomas and interim coach Herb
Williams, a meeting that Brown
described as “positive.” Brown
had been uneasy about the pros-
pect of displacing Williams as coach.
Brown may

‘Hawks in the NBA
By Ashley MichAels
Three former Kansas men’s basketball players are
adjusting to life on opposing teams.
Aaron Miles, former guard, Keith Langford, former
forward, and Wayne Simien, former forward, are all
currently members of NBA summer league teams, only
now they are playing against each other.
The Miami Heat drafted Simien during the 2005 NBA
Draft on June 29. Miles and Langford were not drafted but
have found their places among the NBA hopefuls. Miles
now plays with the Seattle SuperSonics summer league
team. He hasn’t played against any of his former team-
mates but he did get the opportunity to train with Simien in
“We worked out together so sometimes we were on
the same team and sometimes we were on separate
teams,” Miles said. “When we played on the same team
it was like the chemistry was still there. I knew where
he wanted the ball and how to give it to him. When we
played against each other it was like we knew what each
other was going to do. I wanted my team to win, but at
the same time I wanted him to do good as well.”
Langford is playing with the Dallas Mavericks and got
the opportunity to play against Simien and the Miami
Heat twice, July 11 and July 14 at Long Beach State.
At the frst game on July 11, the Heat won 95-87.
Langford was 1 for 8 from the feld ending the night
with 4 points. Simien scored 13 points and was 5 for 12.
When the two former teammates met for the second
time, the Mavericks won 109-96. Both Langford and
Simien scored 20 points.
“It’s cool because my team won,” Langford said. “But
when we played against each other I had to catch myself
every once in awhile after a point or when we did some-
thing good because it’s just habit to congratulate each other.
It was good to see him play and to see him doing good.”
Simien will stay with the Heat following the summer
league season. As of July 26, Miles and Langford have
not been picked up by any teams for the regular season.
