environmentalist visits
in honor of earth day
In honor of earth Day, the University
will be hosting Dr. David Orr, a well-
known environmentalist who is ac-
tive in many areas of environmental
studies, with his seminar “Finding
the political Will to Reverse Climate
The discus-
sion will be
Thursday in the
Kansas Union’s
Woodruff Audi-
torium begin-
ning at 7:30
p.m. Orr will talk
about recent climate change and how
communities can adapt and respond.
KU environs president sarah Kraus, a
junior from Allen, Texas, said he will
be offering ideas about how to start
productive dialogues about climate
change in communities.
“I hope that this will put more mo-
tivation behind movements,” she add-
ed.” And for those who are unaware,
they’ll learn some truths about climate
Orr is also a faculty member at
Oberlin College in Oberlin, Ohio. Kind-
scher said that Orr has spoken at the
University before.
“He’s very knowledgeable, informed
and thoughtful,” said Kelly Kindscher,
a professor of environmental studies.
“He’s thinking of ways that we can
help make things better for us in the
future in terms of sustainability is-
sues. I’m very confdent that he will
have a message that people will want
to hear and that will infuence us, par-
ticularly in lawrence.”
Kindscher said the decision to host
Orr was an easy one. After proposing
him during the planning discussions,
Kindscher said there was an immedi-
ate response, and then Orr was con-
tacted to see if he was available.
“The issue of climate changes is a
hard one for us individually, and that’s
where he will go, to show that all small
individual actions are important for us
to take,” Kindscher said.

Grandmothers, sisters, co-work-
ers, uncles, mothers and complete
strangers will be honored, enter-
tained and aided at the University’s
10th annual Relay for Life Friday
night through Saturday morning.
“Nobody really understands the
impact cancer has on so many peo-
ple until you see it with your own
eyes,” said Erin Frazier, a senior
from Andover and Relay for Life’s
Event Co-Chair.
In years past, the overnight
event has raised $30,000 to $40,000
to benefit the American Cancer
Society’s services throughout
Douglas County and research at
the University of Kansas Medical
The high-energy opening cer-
emonies will start at 6 p.m. At
midnight, a Luminaria Ceremony
with candle lighting will remem-
ber those lost to cancer. At the
Fight Back Ceremony at 1 a.m.,
participants will take a personal
pledge to make a difference in the
fight against cancer. Free food will
accompany both serious moments
and games of dodgeball.
With more than 500 students
expected to volunteer, Frazier
believes the fight against cancer is
both personal and universal. Her
grandmother was diagnosed with
breast cancer in 2004.
Bre Kirkhart, the other Event
Co-Chair, also a senior from
Andover, has a similar history
working to fundraise and fight.
After her mom, Michelle Moser,
heard about the event during a
chemotherapy treatment session,
Kirkhart proceeded to volunteer
with Relay for Life in Andover
throughout high school.
Cancer wasn’t a big surprise con-
sidering her family history. Moser
anticipated a lumpectomy and a
minor radiation therapy. However,
the size of her tumors and extent of
her diagnosis was more severe than
she had expected. Moser faced sur-
gery and 16 weeks of chemothera-
py treatment for stage II aggressive
breast cancer, pre-ovarian cancer
and then thyroid cancer in 2004.
Disobeying her doctor’s recom-
mendation to rest, Moser snuck
into the office between rounds of
chemotherapy. Her wig matched
her original hair so closely that her
co-workers didn’t even notice that
she had had a friend shave her head
when her hair began to fall out.
When she developed a blood clot,
she wore long sleeves to cover the
peripherally inserted central cath-
eter secured by transparent tape in
her forearm.
“It’s so rare if you know some-
body that hasn’t been touched by
cancer,” Moser said.
Thanks to a handful of close
friends, Moser never went to an
appointment or treatment by her-
self. Having just settled a divorce,
Moser was in disbelief that her
kids — Kirkhart just starting high
school and her son just starting col-
lege — would have to go through
cancer with her.
“I truly do not think that our
caregivers get enough support,”
Moser said. “Yes, we’re the ones
vomiting, but they’re the ones that
have to watch us and stand by help-
lessly. There’s nothing they can do
to make it better. I can’t even imag-
ine how hard it was on Bre because
she was there with me every time,
after every treatment.”
Watching survivors walk the first
lap on the track to upbeat music at
Relay for Life is meant to be both
a celebration and demonstration
of how many people have fought
with cancer. That’s what the event
is all about: celebrating survivors’
victories, remembering those lost
and fighting back.
The 462 registered participants
have already raised more than
$26,000 to benefit the American
Cancer Society.
Moser is in remission and now
runs 5Ks and 10Ks. Her first Relay
for Life in Lawrence was to support
her daughter’s involvement in orga-
nizing the event. She has continued
to make the trip to Lawrence each
year, impressed by the growing
numbers of young adults working
to support the cancer patients in
their lives.
Individual registration for
Friday’s Relay for Life at 6 p.m. at
Memorial Stadium is still open.
One person from each of the 60
registered team should be walk-
ing the track at all times while the
rest of the participants can relax in
their tents.

harvest season
Throwing out leftovers may
feed the less fortunate – eventu-
The University’s campus gar-
den uses compost from food
waste donated by scholarship
halls as fertilizer. The campus gar-
den donates its produce to those
who could not otherwise afford it
through Just Foods, the Douglas
County food bank.
Brittany Hodges, a sophomore
from Leawood, said the garden,
located at 13th and Louisiana
Street, is part of a larger effort
to promote community service
and environmental conserva-
tion. Hodges is the coordinator
for the Earth program, a divi-
sion of the University’s Center for
Community Outreach (CCO).
“Growing food uses so much
energy with the machinery, irriga-
tion and transportation,” Hodges
said. “This is a way to teach stu-
dents how to grow their own food,
reduce their carbon footprint and
save money.”
Student volunteers already
planted seeds last week and
hope to harvest lettuce, radishes,
squash, basil, chives and green
onions when summer comes,
Hodges said.
While only three to four stu-
dents volunteer weekly at the
garden, nearly 5,000 students
volunteer in 13 organizations for
between 7,000 and 9,000 hours
annually through the CCO, said
Jill Wenderott, executive director
for CCO.
Wenderott, a junior from
Alma, said the variety of volun-
teer opportunities match differing
passions in students, which, along
with the campus garden, include
working on art projects with pre-
school-age children, serving at the
Lawrence Community Shelter or
teaching music lessons to junior
high or elementary school stu-
“Through service, I’ve come to
feel much more connected to the
community,” Wenderott said. “A
lot of students who are involved
are serving in ways that pertain to
their future career in their com-
While Vivian Choong, a sopho-
more from Overland Park, helps
out with the campus garden when
she can, she also tutors high
school students from low socio-
economic status for five hours
each week.
“I want to be a teacher, so it’s
good experience working with
kids,” Choong said.
Through the program, Upward
Bound, Choong accumulates
plenty more volunteer hours than
the required 10 each semester
through her sorority, Alpha Chi
But for Eric Becker, a fresh-
man from Norton, volunteering
at the campus garden is not about
accumulating volunteer hours at
all. Becker sees the donated pro-
duce as helping others, promot-
ing sustainable living and eating
“If students grow their
own garden, they could eat
healthier because
fresh produce is
readily available,”
Becker said.

Grad student team wins design competition
Hundreds of hours of work
and one trip to Minneapolis later,
Lauren Brown has gained nation-
al prestige and a nice chunk of
change in her pocket: $9,000 to
be exact.
Brown, a graduate student from
He r mi t a g e ,
Mo., was a
member of the
winning team
in the Gerald D.
Hines Student
Urban Design
Contest. The
c ompe t i t i on
asked 149 teams
of five multi-
disciplinary graduate students to
design a development solution
for the Downtown East neigh-
borhood in Minneapolis. Finalist
teams from Yale, Harvard, Ball
State, Purdue and Brown’s team,
including students from UMKC
and K-State, met in Minneapolis
on April 10 to present their final
solutions and compete for the
grand prize of $50,000.
After moving through to the
final round, teams had to criti-
cally revise their original designs
and come prepared with all new
boards. For Brown, this meant
spending about two months work-
ing eight- to 10-hour days, and
dedicating her whole spring break
working from 8 a.m. to 10 or 11
at night.
When they presented to a panel
of 11 jurors made up of members
of the Urban Land Institute and
citizens of Minneapolis, Brown
knew they had to be confident in
what they had.
“We knew that from all aspects
of our project we were going to be
looked at through a magnifying
glass,” she said. “There was a lot
more work that went in than just
what was on our boards.”
However, their hard work and
bold design changes were ulti-
mately prize-worthy.
“When you do something bold,
you take risks and you have to
weigh your options,” Brown said.
“It’s always a choice. You always
have to leave something out in
order to take advantage of some-
thing else. Obviously, we weighed
our options pretty well.”
As a part of her competition
studio class, Brown gives one or
two formal presentations a semes-
ter in front of classmates and two
to three jurors. Being a part of a
prestigious national competition
rather than a class presentation
meant that the stakes and the
nerves were considerably higher.
“It’s still intimidating then, but
to be in front of 11 people who are
nationally, or very well respected
and recognized individuals and
$50,000 on the line, it’s pretty
nerve-wracking,” Brown said.
In the week and a half lead-
ing up to the competition, the
team had the opportunity to give
four formal mock presentations,
which Brown said “helped tre-
April 11 consisted of an early
breakfast and introduction of the
competition, then the teams pre-
sented. Brown and her team drew
to present first.
“I think that we were all ner-
vous right before, but when we
got up there, we nailed it because
we had practiced so hard,” Brown
said. “We felt very confident walk-
ing out of there. That was an awe-
some feeling.”
After the 25-minute formal pre-
sentation, Brown’s team had a four-
hour wait followed by a 20-minute
question and answer session. The
winner was announced almost
immediately following the last Q
& A.
“The moment was a little bit
anticlimactic,” Brown said. “It was
almost like, ‘Whoa, did that just
One of her supporters through
her journey, Kadim Al Asady, an
architecture graduate student from
Iraq, said the shock for Brown has
been lasting.
“Sometimes when you win, it’s
not even that great of a feeling
because you’ve exerted so much
work,” he said. “You realize it after
the fact, and I think she’s still in
that state where she hasn’t realized
that she won.”
Al Asady, who met Brown while
tutoring her in 2009, described
her as “beyond a perfectionist.”
He said she was successful because
of the hours of hard work she
invested in the project.
“It’s a direct result of her char-
acter and work ethic,” he said.
“Especially in this profession,
you almost have to really exert
that much energy and work into
a project for you to accomplish
anything. I’ve yet to see a person
do the normal eight-hour day, five
days a week and get somewhere.”
Although Brown and her team
defeated teams from Harvard and
Yale, she said they were all con-
gratulatory and supportive of each
other. In fact, they spent the eve-
ning celebrating together until the
clubs closed down.
“We just had the time of our
lives,” Brown said. “We had a
In addition to networking
with other teams, Brown fostered
friendships with her team that she
hopes will last.
“I actually emailed them this
morning,” she said. “We were just
corresponding about logistics, but
I was just like, ‘I miss you guys
a lot.’ They’re pretty awesome
Brown has a job lined up for the
summer in Kansas City, Mo., but is
unsure of where she will go or how
she will spend the money after
graduation. She said she is weigh-
ing the options between traveling
or studying abroad or practical
uses such as paying off loans.
“That’s not as fun,” she joked.
However, because of her rec-
ognition, she has caught the eye
of potential employers from coast
to coast. She said jurors from Los
Angeles and Chicago approached
her after the competition.
“It’s a great kick start for her
career,” Al Asady said. “To be an
honorable mention in a competi-
tion, that’s a huge deal, let alone
winning it.”

Accused poisoner goes to trial
on Twitter
OXFORD, Miss. — Investigators
haven’t found any ricin in the
house of a Mississippi man accused
of mailing poisoned letters to
President Barack Obama, a U.S.
senator and a local judge, accord-
ing to testimony Monday from an
FBI agent.
Agent Brandon Grant said that a
search of Paul Kevin Curtis’ vehicle
and house in Corinth, Miss., on
Friday did not turn up ricin or
ingredients for the poison. A search
of Curtis’ computers has found no
evidence so far that he researched
making ricin.
“There was no apparent
ricin, castor beans or any mate-
rial there that could be used for
the manufacturing, like a blender
or something,” Grant testified. He
speculated that Curtis could have
thrown away the processor. Grant
said computer technicians are now
doing a “deep dive” on the suspect’s
computers after initially finding no
“dirty words” indicating Curtis had
searched for information on ricin.
Through his lawyer, Curtis has
denied involvement in letters sent
to Obama, Mississippi Republican
Sen. Roger Wicker, and a Lee
County, Miss., judge. The letters,
bearing a Memphis, Tenn., post-
mark, were detected beginning
April 15.
Curtis’ lawyer said in court that
someone may have framed Curtis,
suggesting that a former co-worker
with whom Curtis had an extended
exchange of angry emails may have
set him up.
Still, Grant testified that authori-
ties believe that they have the right
“Given the right mindset and
the Internet and the acquisition
of material, other people could be
involved. However, given informa-
tion right now, we believe we have
the right individual,” he said.
Grant said lab analysis shows the
poison is a crude form that could
have been created by grinding cas-
tor beans in a food processor or
coffee grinder.
Federal investigators believe the
letters were mailed by Curtis, an
Elvis impersonator who family
members say suffers from bipolar
Grant testified Friday that
authorities tried to track down the
sender of the letters by using a list
of Wicker’s constituents with the
initials KC, the same initials in the
letters. Grant said the list was whit-
tled from thousands to about 100.
He said Wicker’s staff recognized
Curtis’ name as someone who had
written the senator before.
The letters also contained lines
from Curtis’ Facebook page.

BOSTON — Boston Marathon
bombing suspect Dzhokhar
Tsarnaev was charged in his hos-
pital room Monday with using a
weapon of mass destruction to kill,
and he could face the death penalty
if convicted.
Tsarnaev, 19, was accused by
federal prosecutors of joining with
his older brother to set off the
two pressure-cooker bombs that
sprayed shrapnel into the crowd at
the finish line last Monday, killing
three people and wounding more
than 180.
The criminal complaint contain-
ing the charges shed no light on the
motive for the attack.
Tsarnaev was listed in serious
but stable condition at Beth Israel
Deaconess Medical Center, unable
to speak because of a gunshot
wound to the throat. His brother,
Tamerlan, 26, died last week in a
fierce gunbattle with police.
“Although our investigation is
ongoing, today’s charges bring a
successful end to a tragic week
for the city of
Boston and for
our country,”
Attorney General
Eric Holder said
in a statement.
The charges
carry the death
penalty or a pris-
on sentence of
up to life.
“He has
what’s coming to him,” a wounded
Kaitlynn Cates said from her hos-
pital room. She was at the finish
line when the first blast knocked
her off her feet, and she suffered an
injury to her lower leg.
The brothers are ethnic
Chechens from Russia who have
lived in the U.S. for about a decade.
Investigators are focusing on a trip
the older brother made last year
to Chechnya and Dagestan, in a
region of Russia that has become
a hotbed of separatist politics and
Islamic extremism.
Tsarnaev was charged with using
and conspiring to use a weapon of
mass destruction against persons
and property, resulting in death.
He is also like-

nection with the

The Obama
a d mi n i s t r a -
tion said it had
no choice but
to prosecute
Tsarnaev in the
federal court system. Some politi-
cians had suggested he be tried as
an enemy combatant in front of
a military tribunal, where defen-
dants are denied some of the usual
U.S. constitutional protections.
But Tsarnaev is a naturalized
U.S. citizen, and under U.S. law,
American citizens cannot be
tried by military tribunals, White
House spokesman Jay Carney said.
Carney said that since 9/11, the
federal court system has been used
to convict and imprison hundreds
of terrorists.
In its criminal complaint, the
FBI said it searched Tsarnaev’s
dorm room at the University of
Massachusetts-Dartmouth on
Sunday and found BBs as well as a
white hat and dark jacket that look
like those worn by one of one of the
suspected bombers in the surveil-
lance photos the FBI released a few
days after the attack.
Sen. Dan Coats of Indiana, a
member of the Senate Intelligence
Committee, said Sunday that
Tsarnaev’s throat wound raised
questions about when he will be
able to talk again, if ever. It was
not clear whether the wound was
inflicted by police or was self-
The wound “doesn’t mean he
can’t communicate, but right now

BUTTE, Mont. — A Great Falls
man who lost his macaw in a
divorce more than five years ago
has been reunited with the bird,
thanks to an observant friend.
Mike Taylor picked up the
25-year-old bird he calls “Love
Love” at Montana’s Parrot &
Exotic Bird Sanctuary in Butte
on Sunday.
Taylor said his wife sold the
bird after a nasty divorce. “I’ve
been kind of looking for him the
whole time,” he said.
A friend of Taylor’s, Steven
Campbell, recently spotted the
bird during a visit to the sanctu-
It took some time for Campbell
to convince Taylor. Then Taylor
had to convince sanctuary found-
er Lori McAlexander. But she said
he knew things about the bird
that only a previous owner could
have known, like it was blind in
one eye, said “love love” and liked
to play peek-a-boo.
The bird was surrendered to
the sanctuary a couple of years
ago after it bit a woman so hard
she required medical attention,
McAlexander said.
“I don’t even handle him
because he will bite me,” she said.
Love Love appeared to recog-
nize Taylor right away.
“Hangs upside down already, let
me grab his beak, does his peeky-
boo, likes to tuck his head,” said
Taylor, who called the reunion
“very heart touching.”
“He’s himself again already, he
really is. I mean, he (didn’t) for-
Taylor also got the bird’s origi-
nal cage back after searching on
Craigslist. A woman who obtained
the contents of his ex-wife’s stor-
age unit agreed to give him the
cage back at no charge.
“It’s kind of weird how he’s
getting his bird and the cage,”
McAlexander said.
Taylor said he initially got the
bird at a Salt Lake City sanctu-
ary after it was rescued from a
woman who reportedly beat it
with a broom.
Macaws can live up to 50 years,
according to the San Diego Zoo.

s soon as the Boston
tragedy happened,
pictures and videos of
it began to pop up all over the
Internet. With the ubiquity of
smartphones and easy Internet
access, pictures from the event
became pretty much public
domain. The free information
flow for everyone has reached the
criminal realm. The police do not
hold exclusivity rights over crime
evidences anymore, and it seems
like everyone with an iPhone can
be an investigator now. Although
open access to information is
usually positive, it is definitely
not in this case. As demonstrated
by Reddit’s “FindBostonBombers”
thread, investigation crowdsourc-
ing might be the easiest path to
modern-day witch hunt.
Not long after the bomb went
off, Reddit users mobilized on
the task of finding the respon-
sible parties. They collected and
went through pictures of the
event, pointing out supposedly
suspicious behavior, such as not
watching the marathon or going
through your backpack. Many
suspects were identified, some
down to the name and Facebook
profile. The well-intentioned
online investigators seemed to be
onto something.
As it turned out, they were
The thread, now taken down
by Reddit editors, did not identify
the real suspects arrested by the
FBI. Their online “suspects” were
actually innocent and completely
guiltless people, and their families
were hassled and persecuted. The
online investigators were wrong,
but even if they had been right,
crowdsourcing investigation sails
into very dangerous waters.
The advocates of investigation
crowdsourcing argue that it has
the potential to mobilize more
people to investigate a crime
than the official investigation
could ever pay for. That is true.
But they overlook potential mass
delusions, one of most dangerous
features of social behavior in situ-
ations like these.
Mass delusion is not a new
phenomenon. The human mind
will usually find patterns when it
is looking for them. Many cases
have been reported, among them
the Seattle Windshield Pitting
In April 1954, citizens in the
Seattle metro area began to notice
previously undetected windshield
holes in their cars after a reported
vandalism incident. The police
got close to 3,000 reported cases
in a couple of weeks, and many
of the city’s residents believed
it was caused by the action of a
gang with a particular fixation for
windshields. As it turns out, the
holes were actually always there,
and there was nothing suspi-
cious about them. But because
people were looking for patterns
and suspicious holes in their
cars, they invariably found them.
Online investigators looking at
pictures and marking regular
bystanders as criminals is nothing
but another facet of mass delu-
In the Boston tragedy case,
some of the victims of collective
delusion included, among others,
the missing Brown University
student Sunil Tripathi, a man
who became known online as
the “Blue Robe Guy,” as well as a
Saudi man tackled by bystand-
ers and persecuted by the media.
Even though all of them turned
out innocent, they had already
been judged guilty by a deluded
section of the public, sure about
their suspicions.
Although public help could
have been useful when process-
ing images, the same group that
is passively looking at pictures
online could easily be out on the
streets searching for the “terror-
ists,” and we have seen that kind
of witch hunt before.
There are more Reddit users
than investigators in the Boston
police, no doubt, and they can
process a lot more informa-
tion. Although investigation
crowdsourcing increases speed
of processing, the accuracy costs
are way too expensive. We ought
to be careful: The line between
a watchful crowd and a vigilante
mob is a thin one. Unfortunately,
we have crossed it. Let’s hope and
work so that we do not cross it
again in the future.

t’s April everyone, in case
you didn’t already know.
The trees are getting their
color back, the flowers are
blooming, the weather is warm-
ing up and summer is right
around the corner. Use this time
wisely to get ready for the antici-
pated summer.
But what exactly is the best
way to spend your summer vaca-
tion? As college students, we
need to make the most out of
our summers because before we
know it, we will have full-time
jobs and no summer vacation.
For us juniors, it could be our
last summer to enjoy without
having a job to report to every-
day. So before we have to face
those real-life situations, make
the most of this summer.
It is going to be another hot
and humid summer this year,
so make sure you have plenty of
time at the beach. There is no
better way to stay cool during a
hot summer day than a day at
the beach. It is also a great way
to stay relaxed and stress-free.
I know it can be hard to get
motivated to leave the comfort
of your air-conditioned house,
but if you are staying cool on a
beach, it might make it worth it.
And if you don’t live near a
beach, take a vacation and make
a trip out of it, either to a beach
or a city you have never been to.
We all have that one place in the
country we have never been to
and have always wanted to go,
so why not take that trip this
summer? If you’re out of school
and work, you have the time, so
take advantage of it before you
are busy again with school in the
fall. Make memories, get out and
be active.
Make the time to go to some
music festivals or an outdoor
concert. Wakarusa is a fun music
festival. It is a three-day out-
door event that has music of all
genres, so it is fun for everyone.
Or if you’re the type of person
who doesn’t like to camp and be
away from their bed, then make
the time to go to an outdoor con-
cert and take advantage of the
warm weather because it will be
gone before we know it.
Who could forget to throw a
barbeque with some day drink-
ing on a lazy Sunday? This might
be the most fun one could do
during the summer. This is the
best way to enjoy your summer
and the weather.
Just remember it is important
to get out and enjoy the sum-
mer before we are all back to the
school grind in the fall.

really? you are going to put your bag,

f you’re anything like me,
you’re perpetually in the
market for a new car. I’m
constantly browsing the clas-
sifieds, daydreaming about how
much fun it would be to roll in
a stylish new ride. I quickly tire
of whatever car I currently own,
wondering if there’s something
affordable out there that’d be
more exciting to drive.
OK, it’s a really weird obses-
sion, so hopefully you’re not like
Either way, my automotive
attention deficit disorder leads
me down more than a few adven-
tures with used car dealers, and
I’ve picked up a few useful bits
of advice along the way. If you’ve
toyed with the idea of buying a
new (or used) car, read on.
Before you even think about
visiting a dealer, you must iden-
tify the car you want and do
your research. If you go into a
test drive knowing less about
the car than the salesman, then
you don’t know enough. Know
that car inside and out, and
peruse online forums to deter-
mine any common problems
with the model you’re interested
in. Check out car value guides,
like Kelley Blue Book and the
National Automobile Dealers
Association (NADA) to find out
exactly what you should pay for
your car. A salesman will know
if you are unprepared, and many
will stretch the truth when they
notice your shortcoming.
Next, hit up Craigslist,
AutoTrader, eBay and the like
until you find the right car. In
fact, find several cars that match
your criteria, because they won’t
all be perfect. The online pic-
tures you see are infamous for
hiding blemishes like cracked
windshields and defective air
Once you’ve found a suitable
car and set up an appointment
to see and drive it, approach
the salesman confidently.
Understand your purpose and be
ready to explain why you’re look-
ing at that certain car, especially
if its price is steeper. Dress well
for the test drive; I personally like
the clean, professional look of
jeans and a tucked-in polo shirt.
It says to the salesman, “I can
afford this car, but I’m not going
to pay more than it’s worth.”
While you’re inspecting the
car, ask critical questions. Who
were the previous owners? Do
they have receipts for the car’s
maintenance work? Has the car
been in an accident? Oftentimes,
a small used car dealer won’t be
able to answer all of these ques-
tions because they bought the car
from an auction, not the previous
owner, but it’s worth asking. Be
sure to pay special attention to
any problem areas you identified
in your research, and (with the
salesman’s permission) bring the
car to your trusted mechanic for
a quick inspection during the test
If the car lives up to your
expectations, it’s time to negoti-
ate a deal with those fellas. Go
into the negotiations with your
walk-away price firmly in mind.
That means you must decide that
if they won’t give you the car for
less than a certain dollar amount,
then you’ll walk away from the
deal. Don’t be afraid to say no to
a subpar deal. Dealers sometimes
scramble to meet their sales quo-
tas during the last week of each
month, so you can sometimes
negotiate a deal more easily then,
simply because they need to
move cars off the lot.
If you’re trading in your cur-
rent car, don’t be fooled by the
games they’ll try to play. I was
once told that a dealer couldn’t
give me more than $1,000 for
my 1997 model car because it
was too old to sell on their lot. I
wasn’t falling for that one, so he
talked to his manager and some-
how found $3,500 to offer me for
the car. That’s more like it, bud.
Know your car’s trade-in value
and suggested retail value when
you go in. The dealer needs to
turn a profit, so he won’t pay you
retail, but don’t settle with less
than your car is worth. It’s more
work for you, but you’ll always
get more money for your car if
you sell it yourself.
The most fatal mistake you
can make during this process is
getting emotionally attached to a
car. As soon as you are emotion-
ally attached, you’re willing to
pay anything for it, so make sure
your head is speaking to you as
much as your heart. Find some-
thing that’s right for your needs,
that’s reliable and that’s within
your financial reach. And when
you’ve made the rational choice
on the deal, look back in several
years knowing that you made a
good decision.

NEW YORK — So much for
scripted police procedurals. The
marathon manhunt in Boston was
a real-life drama that kept the
biggest television networks and
their viewers on edge for most of
the day and into Friday evening,
with a city’s safety hanging in the
It had a prime-time conclusion,
too. Shortly before 9 p.m. EDT,
and three hours after the sound of
gunfire indicated the end might
be near, Boston police announced
that the second suspect in the
Boston Marathon bombing had
been taken into custody.
“I feel like I’ve been watching a
bad movie that I couldn’t turn off,”
said one resident, Rita Colella,
interviewed on NBC.
ABC, CBS and NBC took the
unusual step of casting aside reg-
ular programming to cover the
story throughout the day, joined
by the cable news networks.
TV was a window to the world
for residents of Boston and some
surrounding areas, who were
asked by authorities to stay in
their homes as the search went
“It’s unbelievable, unprecedent-
ed to see a major metropolitan
area essentially called to a halt,”
Chris Jansing said on MSNBC.
The evening action came as
attention to the story was begin-
ning to lag. After a full day of
coverage, NBC switched to
Ellen DeGeneres’ talk show.
Massachusetts authorities lift-
ed their order that everyone in
Boston and some suburbs stay at
During the long day of cov-
erage, networks seemed to keep
in mind Wednesday’s embarrass-
ment, when some news organiza-
tions erroneously reported that a
suspect in the bombing had been
arrested. The scarcity of solid
information did lead to moments
of confusion, though. In mid-
morning, MSNBC was reporting
that a second suspect was being
hunted. CNN flashed on its screen
that police were searching for a
Honda that the suspect may be
driving in Connecticut.
As the day went on, networks
found it harder to fill the time.
Video of the overnight firefight
was played over and over. NBC’s
Brian Williams had a fascinat-
ing interview with a couple who
lived overlooking the street where
the gunplay took place, describing
bullets that came into their home.
But it turned long-winded.
Individual networks were able
to show strengths during the cov-
erage. ABC’s Bianna Golodryga
used her fluency in Russian to
conduct interviews with the sus-
pects’ father. On CBS, John Miller
and Bill Bratton displayed their
police connections in a knowl-
edgeable and low-key manner.
Witherspoon is “deeply embar-
rassed” about what she said to
police officers after she and her
husband were arrested during a
traffic stop in Atlanta.
The Oscar-winning actress
released a statement late Sunday
apologizing for her behavior to
police that began when her hus-
band, Hollywood agent Jim Toth,
was arrested early Friday for driv-
ing under the influence of alco-
“Do you know my name?”
Witherspoon is quoted as saying
in a state trooper’s report. She
also said: “You’re about to find out
who I am” and “You’re about to be
on national news,” according to
the report.
“I clearly had one drink too
many and I am deeply embar-
rassed about the things I said,”
Witherspoon said. “It was defi-
nitely a scary situation and I was
frightened for my husband, but
that is no excuse. I was disrespect-
ful to the officer who was just
doing his job. The words I used
that night definitely do not reflect
who I am. I have nothing but
respect for the police and I’m very
sorry for my behavior.”
Witherspoon said she can’t
comment further “out of respect”
for the pending case, and her
publicist, Meredith O’Sullivan
Wasson, offered no other details.
The 37-year-old actress was
arrested on a municipal charge
of disorderly conduct early Friday
after a state trooper said she
wouldn’t stay in the car while Toth
was given a field sobriety test.
She was released from jail after
the Friday
m o r n -
ing arrest
and was in
New York
on Sunday
night for
the pre-
miere of
her new
film, “Mud.” She posed for cam-
eras on the red carpet but did not
stop to talk to reporters.
The trooper noticed the car
driven by her husband wasn’t stay-
ing in its lane early Friday morn-
ing, so he initiated a traffic stop.
He reported that Toth had droopy
eyelids, watery, bloodshot eyes,
and his breath smelled strongly
of alcohol.
Toth told the trooper he’d had
a drink, which Witherspoon said
was consumed at a restaurant two
hours before the traffic stop, the
trooper writes.
Before the field sobriety test
began, Witherspoon got out of
the car, was told to get back in
and obeyed, the report said. After
the “Walk the Line” star got out
a second time, the trooper said
he warned her that she would be
arrested if she left the car again.
As the test continued, “Mrs.
Witherspoon began to hang out
the window and say that she did
not believe that I was a real police
officer. I told Mrs. Witherspoon
to sit on her butt and be quiet,”
Trooper First Class J. Pyland
Toth, 42, was then placed under
arrest. He was charged with driv-
ing under the influence and fail-
ure to maintain the lane.
At that point, the report says,
Witherspoon got out and asked
the trooper what was going on.
After being told to return to the
car, she “stated that she was a ‘US
Citizen’ and that she was allowed
to ‘stand on American ground,’”
the report states.
The trooper then began to
arrest Witherspoon. The report
says Witherspoon was resistant at
first but was calmed down by her
Toth and Witherspoon were
then taken to jail.
News of the arrest broke shortly
before Witherspoon arrived on
the “Mud” red carpet.
“I can’t say anything because
I don’t know,” said director Jeff
Nichols. “I literally — the first guy
on the press line to say something
was the first time I heard about it
so I gotta go figure it out.”
Matthew McConaughey, who
plays the lead role in “Mud” and is
represented by Toth, said “I’m not
going to comment on that because
it’s too fresh.”

Bruins and Red Sox strengthen Boston
ust as sports have deeply affected our
lives, the events of this past week have
shown how greatly our lives can trans-
form sports.
Days of gut-wrenching events and sto-
ries unfolded in front of our eyes, with
little we could do but watch. Our emo-
tions wavered with the ebb and flow of the
events. But through such tragedy came
an incredible wave of support. And it was
often carried through the beauty of sound.
In the days following the marathon
bombings but before the capture of the
suspects, the city of Boston came together
for a Bruins hockey game. It was a state-
ment that the city would continue for-
ward, courageous and strong in the wake
of terror. Singer Rene Rancourt began
the National Anthem amongst a crowd
of heavy hearts. But what happened next
nearly brought me to tears.
As Rancourt sang the first few lines, he
could sense the crowd singing along. The
volume grew, and he lowered the micro-
phone for all of Boston to sing along. A
crew of more than 17,000 at TD Bank
Garden sang boldly in unison as Rancourt
led the emotional chorus. The scene
brings chills.
The sounds don’t stop there. Major
League ballparks around the country hon-
ored the city of Boston with music at their
venues. The song “Sweet Caroline” is the
popular song from the Red Sox’s Fenway
Park. Fans across America stood together
to sing and support Boston by playing
their song.
During Boston’s first game back at
Fenway after the suspect’s capturing,
against the Kansas City Royals, the song
played again in its home venue. This
time, Neil Diamond, the artist of “Sweet
Caroline,” flew to Boston to sing it him-
self. The crowd erupted in delight and
sang proudly along with him. The sounds
of normalcy returned to Boston, and the
fans sang even louder with pride and pas-
sion for their resilient city.
Before the game, Red Sox designated
hitter David Ortiz gave a speech to the
crowd. He praised authorities and the
police department for their job during
the past week. But what he said next, the
sounds that shook Fenway Park, are the
truest testament to the passion and resil-
iency of the city that endured so much the
week prior.
“This is our f***ing city,” said Ortiz,
with the whole crowd and country listen-
ing in live.
The crowd absolutely erupted. Perhaps
it was the most acceptable public use of
the word in recent memory. It struck a
chord with the Boston faithful, and frank-
ly, it did with me as well. I am as firm as
it gets against the word’s use in public, but
for the city, for Boston, for the message
that the city and country will always stay
strong, I thought it was appropriate.
It was true passion from one of Boston’s
most famous representatives. And I’m
sure he was just the one who had the
courage and the platform to say it. He’s
right; that’s the Boston way.
“And nobody gonna dictate our city,”
Ortiz said. “Stay strong.”

final image that Kansas State fans
will have of Angel Rodriguez in a
Wildcat uniform will be an air ball
at the buzzer in an NCAA tourna-
ment game against La Salle that
could have prevented a massive
upset loss.
The Wildcats’
starting point
guard said
Monday that he
wants to trans-
fer closer to his
mother and two
younger broth-
ers, who still
live in his native
Puerto Rico.
Rodriguez was recruited to
Kansas State by former coach Frank
Martin, but was convinced to stay
when Bruce Weber took over the
program. He played through inju-
ries most of last season, helping
the Wildcats win a share of a con-
ference championship for the first
time in 36 years.
Rodriguez did not indicate
where he plans to transfer.
“It is important that everyone
understands this was a really diffi-
cult decision,” he said. “This deci-
sion was based entirely on my fam-
ily and has nothing do with Kansas
State, basketball or the coaching
staff. It’s unfortunate after the year
we just had, but I just feel right
now this is the best thing for me
and my family.
“Whether it is the right choice
or not, family has and always will
be first with me.”
Rodriguez started most of his
freshman year, and in 33 of the
35 games this past season, when
he helped Kansas State finish 27-8
and earn a No. 4 seed in the NCAA
He’s averaged nearly 10 points
and five assists for his career, and
will have two seasons of eligibil-
ity and a redshirt
year still remain-
“Angel really
had a great sea-
son for us and
has emerged as
one of the top
point guards in
the country,”
Weber said in a
statement. “His personal improve-
ment this past year was obviously
a big factor in our run to the Big
12 title.”
Rodriguez left Puerto Rico about
five years ago to pursue basketball
— and a better education — at
Miami’s Dr. Krop High School. But
his mother, Jacqueline Tricoche,
had to stay behind to care for his
two younger brothers, Luis Rivera
and Daniel Rivera.
Angelito, as he’s called, field-
ed several scholarship offers but
chose Kansas State in part because
of Martin’s connection with Miami
and Rodriguez’s AAU coach,
Shakey Rodriguez.
Trioche never saw her son play
as a freshman, but she made a
trip to Kansas State in January
and got to see him star in a win
over Texas. Rodriguez smiled in a
hallway under Bramlage Coliseum
after that game, recalling how his
mother had seen snow for the first
time just that morning.
“It was the right decision to
come here,” Rodriguez said, “and
I don’t regret it all. Coach Weber
and his staff made the transition
a lot easier than I ever thought
it would be. He made me a bet-
ter player and to play with more
“I never thought I would get this
close to my teammates,” he added.
“The past few days have been dif-
ficult for me, just thinking how
this decision would impact them.
However, at the end of the day, I
have do what I think is best for my
mom and my brothers.”
Kansas State is already losing
leading scorer Rodney McGruder
and 7-footer Jordan Henriquez
to graduation, which means
Rodriguez’s loss creates another
gaping void in the starting lineup.
The Wildcats already have
signed a point guard in next
year’s recruiting class in Jevon
Thomas out of St. John’s Northwest
Military Academy in Wisconsin.
They also have a commitment
from Nigel Johnson, a point guard
from Riverdale Baptist in Upper
Marlboro, Md.
“After multiple conversations,
Angel feels an obligation to be
closer to his family,” Weber said.
“Just like the loss of our seniors,
this will be another opportunity
for someone to step up.”

KANSAS CITY, Kan. — Brad
Keselowski arrived at Kansas
Speedway with the specter of
NASCAR sanctions hanging over
Penske Racing, and the first few
laps of Sunday’s race weren’t going
a whole lot better.
He sustained some damage
when he got bumped early on,
and then lost
a lap when he
failed to get
out of the pits
quickly enough.
And by the
time the final
laps were tick-
ing away, the
sheet metal on
the rear of the
car had finally
come loose, flapping like tinfoil in
a 200 mph breeze.
After the back bumper sheared
off, he came in for a late pit stop
that allowed the crew of his
No. 2 Ford to patch things up.
Keselowski charged back onto the
track, and then through the field,
roaring to a sixth-place finish that
made him feel as if he’d won the
“Usually you’re not happy unless
you win,” Keselowski admitted,
“but you know, a day where you
can fight through adversity like
we did and get a solid finish, that’s
kind of is a win, yes.”
Especially given everything the
Penske team has gone through.
“It’s been a long week,”
Keselowski said, “but you know
what? We’re not giving up.”
Nor should they be. The defend-
ing Sprint Cup champions are sit-
ting third in points, trailing only
Jimmie Johnson and Kasey Kahne
as the series shifts to Richmond
next weekend.
But things could be getting a lot
more difficult.
Penske Racing was dealt severe
sanctions by NASCAR after
inspectors found unapproved
parts under the cars of Keselowski
and teammate Joey Logano two
weeks ago at Texas. Among the
punishments were six-race sus-
pensions for seven members of
the two teams, probation through
the end of the year, $100,000 fines
for each crew chief and 25-point
penalties for
each of the driv-
The team has
appealed the
sanctions, argu-
ing that they
were operating
in a “gray area”
with regard to
modified rear-
end housings,
and the hearing is expected to
take place this week.
“I certainly don’t think it’s
cheating,” Roger Penske told
The Associated Press from the
IndyCar race in Long Beach. “We
all work in the gray areas. We’re
trying to be as competitive as we
can be, we’ve got very creative
minds and it takes a lot of creative
minds to be competitive.”
It will be up to a three-member
panel to decide whether creative
was also illegal.
In the meantime, Penske Racing
arrived at Kansas Speedway with
crew chief Paul Wolfe and the rest
of the No. 2 team intact, along
with Logano’s No. 22 team and the
No. 12 of Sam Hornish Jr.
For most of the afternoon, it
was turning out to be forgettable.
Logano bailed out on the apron
when he saw Kyle Busch skidding
down the banking of the corner
midway through the race, but he
had nowhere to go. The two cars
wound up in a bone-jarring, nose-
to-nose collision that sent debris
scattering over the track’s recently
repaved asphalt.
Hornish got into trouble with 84
laps to go when Marcos Ambrose
got sideways right in front of
him. The two collided, and Casey
Mears joined in a wreck that also
included Danica Patrick, leaving
two of the three Penske entries
looking like aluminum cans that
had been stepped on.
Keselowski’s car wasn’t in much
better shape. The minor damage
to the rear quarter panel from
early in the race kept peeling away
bit by bit.
“I could feel something was
wrong with it, but I couldn’t see
it,” Keselowski said afterward. “So
you don’t know what magnitude
it is. Obviously it must have been
pretty severe.”
It was severe enough that his
crew was concerned.
“On that last restart, he kept
asking the spotter before we start-
ed, he said, ‘Where’s the wind?
The wind feels different,’” said
longtime Penske executive Walt
Czarnecki. “At one point he said,
‘It’s like I’ve got a parachute hang-
ing out the back of the car.’
When it eventually popped
off, it brought out a caution that
allowed Matt Kenseth to seize
control, and ultimately hold off
Kahne for his second straight win
at Kansas.
But the yellow flag also allowed
the No. 2 team to finally bend
their car back into shape, and
that was enough for Keselowski
to start driving to the front as the
end neared.
“Wasn’t that great?” Penske
said. “With all the trouble they
had, and the accident on the first
lap, and Joey and Sam being in the
wrong place at the wrong time,
I think it was an amazing finish,
and shows just how tough the
team is. We’ve got to move on here
and keep on racing.”

“it’s been a long week, but
you know what? We’re not
giving up.”

NEW YORK — Chicago evened
its playof series the only way it
knows how: with bruising Bulls de-
Carlos Boozer had 13 points and
12 rebounds, Joakim Noah gutted
his way through a foot injury to
make three fourth-quarter baskets,
and the Bulls beat the Brooklyn
Nets 90-82 on Monday night to even
their frst-round series at one game
Luol Deng bounced back from a
poor opener with 15 points and 10
rebounds for the Bulls, who became
the frst team to win a road game this
Chicago held the Nets to two bas-
kets in the third quarter to build a
big enough lead to hold of a charge
in the fourth.
Noah fnished with 11 points and
10 rebounds for the Bulls, who host
Game 3 on Tursday.
Brook Lopez scored 21 points
for the Nets, who shot 35 percent
from the feld and were just 4 of 21
from 3-point range. Star point guard
Deron Williams was 1 of 9, fnishing
with eight points.
Afer an unrecognizable defensive
efort in a 106-89 loss in Game 1,
when they allowed the Nets to shoot
16 of 20 in the second quarter, the
Bulls got back to the mentality that
has helped them overcome a num-
ber of injuries, including the season-
long absence of Derrick Rose.
Noah, who has battled plantar fas-
ciitis and whose status was in ques-
tion coming into the series, played
26 minutes, just passing the 20-to-25
that coach Tom Tibodeau said he
would be limited to.
Joe Johnson scored 17 points
but shot 6 of 18 for the Nets, who
couldn’t even reach the 87.5 points
they averaged against the Bulls in the
regular season, let alone the 106 they
rang up in the opener.
Two nights afer the frst major
postseason game in Brooklyn since
the 1956 World Series, the crowd
wasn’t as energetic and neither were
the Nets, who didn’t give the fans
much to cheer about with poor starts
in both halves.
Brooklyn was 2 of 19 (10.5 per-
cent) in the quarter, missing all three
3-point attempts. Noah’s low-scor-
ing backup, Nazr Mohammed, had
as many baskets in the period as the
Te Nets were trying for their
frst 2-0 lead in a series since the
frst round in 2004, when they swept
the Knicks. But they couldn’t get
the quick pace that favored them in
Game 1, forcing themselves to beat
Chicago’s defense in the half court,
and they couldn’t do it.
Te Nets missed eight of their
frst 10 shots, allowing the Bulls to
get into the defensive game they
need. Brooklyn shot just 33 percent
in the frst quarter, missed fve of its
six 3-point attempts, and Chicago
led 20-17.
C.J. Watson scored the fnal fve
points of the half, including a 3 at
the buzzer that trimmed Chicago’s
lead to 47-46.
The Kansas men’s golf team was
in third place after the first round
of the Big 12 Championships
Monday at Prairie Dunes Country
Club in Hutchinson. There were
two rounds to the day, and the
Jayhawks were able to complete-
ly derail their early success and
shoot the worst
second round
of all partici-
pants and fall
into a tied-for-
last place with
Iowa State.
“ S e v e r a l
of them just
made care-
less mistakes,”
coach Jamie
Bermel said.
“Drove it in trouble, didn’t get
it out of trouble, 3-putting, just
things we didn’t do to play well.”
The team was leading the now
tournament leader Texas by one
stroke after the conclusion of the
first round, but the second 18
holes were a train wreck for the
“We forgot to tell them it was
the second round,” Bermel said.
“We had to count two eights on
the last holes. There are just nine
to 10 shots out there that you just
can’t afford to give away.”
Plenty of Jayhawks gave away
strokes Monday, but senior Chris
Gilbert was not one of them.
Gilbert’s opening-round 69 made
him the only player in red num-
bers for the first round. Gilbert,
sits at 2-over on the round with
two holes to play.
“He was just
very consistent,”
Bermel said. “He
drove it pretty
well and obvi-
ously hit some
great shots. He

game very well

Gilbert sits nine strokes ahead
of his nearest teammate Stan
Gautier, who is currently T-29 at

the exclusion of Gilbert, are in the
double-digit over-par category.

playing well,” Bermel said. “I

played, he count all 30 rounds.

for the entirety of the season,
and Bermel said the weather was
no excuse for the Jayhawks this
“There are other teams out
there, so it wasn’t like we were
the only ones playing in it,” said
The Jayhawks didn’t finish in
weather that was almost perfect.
“The weather was a little breezy,
then we got the rain,” Bermel said.
“Then, for probably five hours,
we had perfect conditions.”
From noon to 6 p.m., the
weather was ideal. However, the
day would finish in the worst
“I was joking late in the sec-
ond round that this was the qui-
etest this place has ever been,”
Gilbert said. “Then a couple holes

perature dropped 20 degrees.”
Kansas will have nowhere to
go but up when it resumes sec-
ond round play today at 11 a.m.

Jayhawks cancel game
amid forecasts for snow
Kansas baseball is suffering yet
another weather cancellation with
the unseasonably cold weather this
with snow and cold temperatures
in the forecast for Tuesday night’s 6
p.m. frst pitch against oral roberts,
Kansas Athletics canceled the game,
saying it would not be made up.
Kansas is playing another re-
scheduled game against Baker
University wednesday at 6 p.m. in
Hoglund Ballpark.
The cancellation marks the 10th
game canceled or postponed due to
— Trevor Graff
or Kansas, it’s another week,
another cancellation.
Te Jayhawks have re-
scheduled or canceled 10 games this
season due to inclement weather.
With impromptu snow tours
through Arkansas and Texas and
several games played against NAIA
Missouri Valley College, Saint
Mary and soon Baker University,
the Kansas baseball schedule has
taken on the character of a puzzle,
the missing pieces falling in place at
the last minute.
Somehow, through the entire
process of shufing the schedule,
the Jayhawks have maintained a
rhythm and kept the train on the
tracks. Looking through the stand-
ings in Big 12 conference play, it’s
Oklahoma in frst with an 8-4 re-
cord, and the Jayhawks second at
Te Jayhawks have won three
conference series for the frst time
since 2011 and have the opportu-
nity to win three conference series
in a row for the frst time since then
when they take on West Virginia
this weekend.
Tis season’s success may seem
as unlikely to those surrounding
Big 12 baseball as the never-ending
Kansas winter weather. But the Jay-
hawks have made their statement.
By beating TCU two games to
one, saving a fnal game victory
in the Oklahoma series and beat-
ing Oklahoma State and perennial
power Texas, the Jayhawks have so-
lidifed their spot in the rankings.
Tey’re contenders with a vet-
eran middle infeld that continues
to play solid defensively, an outfeld
that has improved greatly since last
season and a bullpen that rivals that
of any bullpen in the Midwest.
Change goes unnoticed in the
McCarthy Family Clubhouse.
Good luck getting anyone to admit
to giddiness or a sense of accom-
plishment to this point. For Kansas,
it’s time to grind.
“You start looking at the stand-
ings, and you start getting yourself
setup to fail big time,” coach Ritch
Price said. “Our players are aware
of the fact that if they’d have won
Sunday, they’d be in frst place to-
day. Obviously, that would’ve been
a great accomplishment with three
series lef, but the whole thing is
about winning series, and we have
to fnd a way next weekend to go to
West Virginia and win.”
With three Big 12 Conference
series remaining the Jayhawks will
play West Virgina, Baylor and Kan-
sas State.
Te Mountaineers are sitting in
sixth with a 6-6 Big 12 record. Te
Bears remain in the thick of it with
an 8-6 record and pose the most se-
rious threat for Kansas looking for-
ward. Te Wildcats are on Kansas’
heels with their 7-5 Big 12 record.
For Kansas, the setting is prime
for a strong fnish in the confer-
ence. Ask Price, and he’ll tell you it
all starts on the mound where the
Jayhawks are still searching for a
Sunday starter.
With a few question marks re-
maining for the Kansas staf, the
Jayhawks have nothing lef to do
but grind.
In a season as weird as the Kan-
sas weather cycle, the Jayhawks are
a solid threat for the top teams in
the conference.
