Sometimes when Brian Devine
looks in his rearview mirror, he
realizes, “Oh yeah, I’m driving my
house.”
He and Maria Scarpello, nomadic
University alumni, have visited 288
craft breweries since ditching their
townhouse, buying a recreational
vehicle and heading west in August
2010.
The first week of classes her
freshman year, Scarpello, then a
Delta Gamma from Omaha, Neb.,
ventured down the sixth floor of
Oliver Residence Hall, introducing
herself to any fresh-faced floor-
mate who had left his dorm room
door open. Devine, from Overland
Park, admits to being less aggres-
sively social. They hung out. They
worked on projects for their design
class together. It wasn’t until sec-
ond semester sophomore year that
Devine asked her to come to a The
Roots concert at Abe and Jake’s
Landing.
Ten years later, Scarpello’s pixie
cut is now accented with fuschia.
Devine first shaved a mohawk — or,
rather, “Jayhawk,” as it was originally
blue and red for March Madness —
in 2012. He recently reshaved it and
dyed it green, as recommended by
the 3-year-old son of a friend whose
driveway the couple had parked
their RV in.
Scarpello graduated in 2005 with
a bachelor’s in Graphic Design and
a master’s in Design Management;
Devine graduated in 2006 with an
Industrial Design degree. The fol-
lowing years of success in corporate
jobs were necessary — both attri-
bute their having found good work
now to the network of mentors and
references their real world expe-
riences built — and unfulfilling.
Wanting to break away from the 9
a.m. to 5 p.m. workday, Scarpello
felt ready for a change.
“I like to say I took an early retire-
ment at the age of 27,” Scarpello
said. “I enjoyed life and what life
is without having the pressures of
work and how you’re supposed to
live get in the way.”
At a March Madness watch party
three years ago, one of their friends
mused about buying an RV and a
national parks pass and touring the
country. Scarpello, who had always
daydreamed about flipping a school
bus and going on
an adventure when
65 and retired, was
surprised to find
Devine willing.
A smoker named
Gary, who report-
edly had only
four teeth, sold
them Stanely, their
mobile house, for
$10,000. Their first
order of business was to gut it, ditch-
ing the stained shag carpeting and
bringing in their collection of Macs
loaded with thousands of movies
and songs. They moved out of their
townhouse, selling off their lawn
mower, television and anything they
didn’t consider memorabilia.
“As you started to get rid of this
stuff, you realized how much you
don’t need it,” Devine said. “Our
philosophy was ‘Anything that we
can replace, let’s get rid of.’”
Devine’s parents were intrigued;
Scarpello’s, concerned.
“Hey Dad,” Scarpello said, finally
calling her parents during their vaca-
tion in Florida a
few days before
she and Devine
hit the road. “I
bought an RV,
quit my job
and am going
to travel the
nation.”
There was a
pause.
“How are
you going to get the news?” her
father asked, caught off guard.
They thought for maybe six
months they’d tour California,
Washington and anything in
between. Two weeks in, they high-
fived and congratulated each other
on the RV being such a good idea.
“There’s too much in the world to
see to stop,” Scarpello said.
Hoping to meet real people at
their first stop in Colorado Springs,
they headed to a bar and found not
just a warm experience but the heart
of the town: locals recommended
the perfect bike trails, restaurants
and sightseeing spots.
They’ve always praised the
communities that brew craft beer
— Devine bussed tables at Free
State Brewery as an undergraduate
student and they started learning
how to brew their junior year. As
designers, they admire innovation,
appreciating different flavors and
processes. Supporting local busi-
ness, Scarpello said, is supporting
the American dream. Their website,
theroamingpint.com, features a blog
of their experiences and reviews of
each brewery.
Thanks to mobile broadband,
Devine freelances, illustrating for
magazines and creating icons, and
Scarpello works full-time, manag-
ing web design accounts. As they
generally only drive for an hour or
two a day, bouncing between the
nearest towns after a few days, they
budget $600 a month for gas — as
much as they would pay in a month
for their commute when they both
worked corporate jobs.
Their two dogs, Ernie, a labra-
dor/terrier mix from the Lawrence
Humane Society, and Buddha, an
English bulldog who slobbers non-
stop that they “rescued” from living
in the state of Missouri, have swum
in both the Pacific and Atlantic
Oceans and spent their three daily
walks exploring dog parks and fire
hydrants in the majority of U.S.
states. Devine and Scarpello have on
more than one occasion Googled a
coin flipping website — it’s hard to
catch a quarter on a bumpy highway
— to decide where to head next.
“The less you plan, the more
you experience — I don’t want to
say ‘serendipity’—” Scarpello said,
turning to Devine, looking for the
right word.
“— Spontaneity,” Devine fin-
ished.

Afer a late night at the library,
Addison Spradlin starts the trek
back to her room at GSP. As she
walks down Louisiana Street, she
clutches her phone and keeps her
car key between her index and
middle fngers, just in case an
unexpected situation arises.
Spradlin, a freshman from
Fort Smith, Ark., isn’t the only
one to feel slightly uneasy walk-
ing near campus late at night.
“I’m para-
noid about
walking late at
night,” she said.
“I’ve watched
one too many
C r i m i n a l
Minds epi-
sodes.”
Poor light-
ing around the
GSP and Corb-
in residence halls is something
that the Student Safety Advisory
Board, a subset of Student Sen-
ate focused on general safety and
improving the student culture, is
aware of and hopes to fx in the
near future.
“I think that’s a really big [is-
sue] because it’s a huge chunk
of students that live over there,
and that area is pretty poorly lit
and has been that way for a long
time,” said Alex Rippberger, cur-
rent chair of the Student Safety
Advisory board.
Rippberger, a senior from
Olathe, said that working with
the city to complete the project
could be expensive, slow and
complicated.
Te project could potentially
use the entirety of the roughly
$80,000 the board has to operate
with for the upcoming year. Also,
because the area is residential,
additional lighting could possi-
bly devalue some properties.
Rippberger said that the pro-
cess has gone more smoothly
for other on-campus lighting
projects. In the past, the board
has worked on similar lighting
projects on Daisy Hill near the
Nunemaker Center.
“Sometimes
it’s really easy
to get those
lighting proj-
ects where it is
clearly an issue,
and sometimes
it’s harder,” he
said.
A n o t h e r
lighting issue
that has been
brought to the
board’s attention is lighting in
and around the Stoufer Place
Apartments. Seyool Oh, a gradu-
ate student senator from South
Korea, said there are issues with
hallway and stairwell lighting,
and insufcient lighting around
the playground, parking lot and
pathways used for shortcuts to
campus.
For example, Oh said that
there is a staircase leading down
to the laundry room that has
an automatic sensor light, but
it doesn’t come on immediately,
posing a danger for residents.
He believes that in these cas-
es, safety should not be sacrifced
for energy efciency.
“Don’t save money, provide
safety and protect our students,”
Oh advised. “It’s KU’s responsi-
bility.”
Oh, who has lived at Stoufer
Place for seven years and served
as president of Stoufer Neigh-
borhood Association for three
years, is passionate about the
safety of the residents.
“I’m married, I have my wife
who also goes to the school, I
have a daughter,” Oh said. “I have
concern about this issue.”
In addition to bigger proj-
ects including the speed bumps
in front of JRP hall, security
cameras on campus and self-de-
fense classes, the board has also
worked with the Ofce of Insti-
tutional and Opportunity Access
to develop programs such as
“Buddy Up” and free fountain
drinks for designated drivers at
local bars.
“A lot of what we want to do
is educational,” Rippberger said.
“Student safety can really be any
of those things.”
Although the board has iden-
tifed areas around Potter Lake,
behind Oliver Hall, around GSP
and Stoufer Place with insuf-
fcient lighting, Rippberger said
the past year has been slower be-
cause of less student input.
“We rely a lot on people to
bring the issues to us, and this
year was actually really low and
not many people brought things
to us,” he said.
Rippberger said this could be
due to a lack of awareness about
the board, or a general feeling of
being safe on campus.
In his opinion, the University
is a pretty safe place for students
to thrive.
“I believe that to have a strong
experience at the University of
Kansas, whatever you like doing
on campus, whether that is clubs
or organizations, or hanging out
with friends, extracurricular ac-
tivities, you have to feel safe,” he
said. “Tat’s the bare minimum;
you have to have a safe campus
for you to enjoy anything else.”

Te limestone of Lawrence has
more signifcance than just “Rock
Chalk.”
“Rattlesnakes in the Rock
Chalk” is Professor Chester Sul-
livan’s latest novel, the second in
the Kaw Trilogy. It brings to life an
epic story of history, mystery and
romance — all happening in Law-
rence.
Te Kaw Trilogy dives into the
history of Kansas through the use
of fctional characters that interact
with real historical fgures and take
part in events that really happened
in Kansas.
Sullivan, a creative writing
professor at the University, drew
inspiration for Rattlesnakes from
the University’s own professor and
19th century naturalist and explor-
er, Lewis Dyche, for whom Dyche
Hall is named.
For the last several years, Sul-
livan spent much of his time re-
searching Lawrence, especially the
natural history preserve.
“I wanted to write a series of
books tracing history to the pres-
ent. I wanted to focus on the ac-
tivities of people, of the town, river
and natural history preserve. A lot
of action takes place at the natural
history preserve,” Sullivan said.
Te central character, Anna
Earlson, a pre-med student who
has just graduated with a biol-
ogy degree, receives a fellowship
to manage a reptile survey on
the natural history preserve — a
site where Ansel Drucker, an un-
employed printer from St. Louis,
mined limestone using dynamite
until he eventually died in his her-
mit’s cave in 1886. A few years
later, a professor builds her home
and a tower out of Drucker’s same
limestone. She fell to her death
from the tower and her ghost is ru-
mored to haunt the site.
Te novel dives into the history
of the site, nicknamed Snake Farm,
and the experiences of the charac-
ters that live and work on Snake
Farm.
“My favorite aspect was being
able to apply my own imagination
to factual situations, being able to
invent characters who become real
people to me and watching them
move and interact,” Sullivan said.
“Te plot is forward moving and
builds suspense. Tere are some
expectations fulflled and some
surprises along the way.”
Sullivan is currently gathering
research for the fnal volume of
the trilogy. It will focus on Truman
Capote, famous author of “In Cold
Blood.” In the upcoming book,
Capote dresses in disguise in Law-
rence to gather information for an
article he is working on about Wil-
liam Burroughs, another famous
novelist. Burroughs is unaware
Capote is doing a laudatory about
him, and the novel will focus on
the action in Lawrence of Capote
trying to secretly get information
about Burroughs.
Te University is a research uni-
versity, which means Sullivan was
able to conduct his research and
write Rattlesnakes through fund-
ing by the College of Liberal Arts
and Sciences. Te college is also
currently funding his research for
his next novel.
“It’s important to write fctions
because they give expression to
ideas that are not fctional, like his-
tory and social history,” Sullivan
said.
“Rattlesnakes in the Rock Chalk”
is currently featured in the Kansas
Union Bookstore and available for
purchase on Amazon.

A
lot of our new devel-
opments and cultural
standards are simply out-
standing. They reflect an (almost)
unified cultural maturity. Yet, as
is always the case in the states,
the good trends are accompanied
by the stupid trends. I feel there
is none worse than Health and
Safety Paranoia. Coined it myself,
do you like it? HSP.
Here is an example of HSP. In
the United States we advertise
for medicine on television. Ask
your doctor if it’s right for you!
Wouldn’t a doctor tell you if it
was right for you without you
asking? Well the advertisements
work and people do ask and doc-
tors prescribe drugs to help calm
anxiety, anti-depressants, sleeping
medicine, and wake-up medicine
all with just a few potential side-
effects: bloody nose, liver failure,
insomnia, trouble eating, trouble
breathing, potential to contract
SHPD, eyes popping out, light-
headedness, heart-murmers,
seizure, coma, vomiting, vomiting
blood, vomiting mucus, loss of
arms, and you might start to like
“Glee.”
Why? Why do people think
they need so many drugs?
Because they help you live longer
and healthier. We don’t need to
live longer. We enjoy almost a
century of life but for some that’s
apparently not enough. We live
these mega-long lives and we
can’t even retire. That sounds
depressing. Good thing we have
medicine for that.
The genetic continuation of
health paranoia will probably
end up changing our immune
systems for the weaker. We’re
dependent on drugs to cure basic
ailments and complicated ones.
We’re dependent on drugs to fix
real medical problems and ones
we only think we have. We’re
so weak. God forbid we find
ourselves without access to all of
these drugs one day. Our depen-
dency could be our end.
Then there’s safety paranoia
which might even be worse for
us. Safety paranoia is plastic
jungle-gym equipment, rubber-
padding instead of rocks, every-
one gets a trophy so nobody’s
feelings get hurt, football with
less tackling, not letting kids play
with each other outside of a par-
ent’s earshot, and not letting kids
take walks because everyone now
is a child-molester or a murderer.
Generation X, you’re doing it
wrong.
I remember the day my
elementary school removed the
giant jungle-gym from the play-
ground. It was a lot of fun, but a
little bit dangerous. I saw a few
friends fall in uncomfortable
ways which resulted in injury.
They were replaced with a much
safer piece of playground equip-
ment that replaced the tall metal
with short round plastic. Fewer
injuries were occurring, but
nobody really thought it was as
much fun as the old metal beast
— at least, not in my little group
of miscreants.
As a child I was beat-up,
scratched-up, scabbed-up,
bruised, and blistered; but I had
a lot of fun. My friends and I
would take adventures unsuper-
vised all around Olathe, exploring
the creeks and tunnels, different
parks and the sketchy parts of the
park where you could tell some
older kids had been… doing what
they do. I’ve had the pox, the
flu, a heat-stroke, and all sorts
of other bacterial infections, but
hey! I had a lot of fun!
Yeah, we stayed inside to play
video games, but that’s when we
weren’t trying to sled underneath
a slightly broken chain-link fence.
I managed to do it because I was
small, but my older neighbor
didn’t fare so well. Sometimes
there was supervision; sometimes
we were getting into trouble and
getting bloodied up rough-hous-
ing. It builds character.
It astounds me that we wonder
why kids stay inside playing video
games all the time when they’re
not allowed to have adventures
anymore. They don’t play dodge-
ball in PE because someone
might get a bloody nose which
would be dangerous. Being wor-
ried about safety is one thing, but
denying the joy of life so nobody
gets scratched is just raising a
weak generation.
We need a little danger. We’re
animals - resilient animals that
don’t go down easily. A child can
mature faster socially by inter-
acting with other children away
from adults. Getting into a little
trouble tests your limitations.
This is how it works: Every
time a kid breaks his arm, he
becomes a stronger person.
This is the truth. A higher pain-
threshold is a good thing. It
starts with rough-housing as a
child getting into a little danger.
If a person doesn’t learn at an
early age to be courageous, he’ll
be a coward when he’s grown-
up. Cowards aren’t winners. A
sheltered child has no need to be
courageous at an early age. Guess
what happens when he grows up.
He’s passive aggressive, afraid
of confrontation, afraid of out-
side, and addicted to prescription
drugs like his parents.

Y
our opportunities over
the summer are endless.
The warm weather and
abundance of free time put plen-
ty of options at your disposal,
like bonfires by the lake, canoe
trips with the guys, concerts in
Kansas City, or even fixing up
your car.
Alright, I’ll admit it, fixing our
used cars probably isn’t at the top
of anybody’s fun list except mine,
but for many of us, it’s a neces-
sity. It doesn’t have to be so hard,
though.
The first thing you can do to
keep your car in smooth running
condition is changing the oil,
which anybody with a wrench
and a bucket can do themselves.
Use the jack to lift up the front of
the car, then slither underneath
the engine to find the oil drain
plug (oftentimes, it’s conveniently
labeled “engine oil”). Use your
handy wrench to unbolt the plug,
and let all of the old oil drain out
into your bucket, then replace
the bolt and tighten it on. Stay
under the front end of the car to
find your oil filter, which is usu-
ally a brightly-colored cylinder.
Unscrew it from the engine and
screw the new one right in place.
Next, pop the hood and pour
your fresh oil into the top of the
engine, making sure to add the
amount your owner’s manual
specifies. Check underneath the
car to make sure none of your
fresh oil is leaking on your drive-
way, and then replace the oil cap
on the engine and you’re ready
to roll.
While you’ve got the hood
open, you might as well check
your air filter. Use your owner’s
manual to determine how to
access the air filter, and if it looks
pretty dirty, it’s probably time to
replace it.
Remove your radiator cap,
which is usually near the very
front of the car by the hood
latch, and make sure your radia-
tor is full of antifreeze. If the
bright green fluid doesn’t reach
the lip of the radiator spout, it’s
time to add more.
If you’ve made it this far
through the article, you’re pretty
adventurous when it comes to
your auto maintenance, and for
that, I applaud you. Next, you’ll
want to address your pesky
check engine light. Simply take
your car to the nearest auto
parts store (my personal favor-
ite is AutoZone), and ask them
to run a diagnostic test on the
car, which is completely free.
They’ll tell you what’s throwing
the check engine code, and then
you can replace the part your-
self. Run a quick Google search
before you buy any new parts,
though, because sometimes the
part just needs a quick (and free)
cleaning. At least, that was the
case with my car’s Exhaust Gas
Recirculation valve last summer.
Sounds complicated, but it was
just a couple bolts to remove it,
a bit of carb cleaner, and then
retightening those bolts.
Every hundred thousand miles
or so, your car will need new
spark plugs and wires. This is
a tricky process, because you’ll
need a special socket to remove
and replace them, and you’ll have
to be very careful when replacing
them so as not to cross-thread
your engine block. We’re talking
a couple thousand dollars to fix
your mistake if you cross-thread
your spark plugs, so seriously, be
careful here.
Finally, your brakes will need
a bit of attention sooner or later.
Changing your front brake pads
is as easy as removing the wheels,
loosening a few big bolts on the
back of the caliper mount, and
then removing the caliper. Hang
the caliper from your coil spring
so you don’t have to disconnect
the rubber brake hose, and you’ll
have easy access to removing
and replacing the pads. There’s
two pads on each wheel, so don’t
miss any.
If you’ve ever noticed strange
wobbling or vibrations when
braking, you’ll want to have your
rotors resurfaced. Simply remove
all of the caliper hardware and
the rotor will slide right off so
that you can drive it to your
local O’Reilly Auto Parts to have
it resurfaced for about $10. Pro
tip: don’t drive your car with
the brake rotors removed; find
another car for this drive if you
want functioning brakes.
With all of this routine main-
tenance performed on your car
over the summer, it’ll be ready
to tackle the dangerous streets
of Lawrence in the fall! Not only
that, but you’ll save yourself hun-
dreds of dollars over going to a
mechanic, so you can spend it on
other things, like performance
modifications for the car! Or
your fall textbooks, whichever
you deem more important.

W
e are finally nearing
the end of the spring
semester. With all
the time-consuming homework,
summer job applications and
overall insanity, I haven’t had
time to check out some of the
newest TV shows on air. So, for
my last column of the year, I
want to share the shows I will be
checking out this summer, once I
have a life again.
“The BiBle” — hisTOry
Channel
“The Bible” mini-series on
History Channel aired this
March, and from what I’ve heard,
the producers did justice to the
religious text.
Whether you are religious or
not, the Bible is one fascinating
piece of literature. Once you get
over the worse-than-Shakespeare
diction, you have an ancient
reality TV show with drama,
romance, and war. To make it a
TV show was all kinds of genius,
and from what I’ve heard, people
are loving it. I’m excited to see
how actor Diogo Morgado por-
trayed Jesus, which is one hefty
role to play. But to be completely
honest, the real reason I want to
check out this show is to see the
physical resemblance between
the character Satan and President
Obama that sparked outrage.
Call it morbid curiosity.
“DefianCe” — syfy
This sci-fi show aired on April
15, so I’m not too far behind.
Aliens, post-apocalyptic world,
and a corresponding video
game? Yes, please. “Defiance”
is a town built upon the ruins
of St. Louis, trying to recoup
after the arrival of several differ-
ent alien races and the war that
followed. But what I truly love
about this concept is the video
game they created to add to the
overall story. This is the future
of storytelling, and I can’t wait to
immerse myself in the TV show
and learn more about the world
in the video game.
“hanniBal” — aBC
I’m a little nervous to check
out this TV remake of my
four favorite movies in the
world: “Silence of the Lambs,”
“Hannibal,” “Red Dragon,” and
“Hannibal Rising.” Nobody can
do Hannibal Lecter like Anthony
Hopkins, though Gaspard Ulliel
did a decent job in “Hannibal
Rising.” But I’m a sucker for
serial killer-inspired TV shows,
so nothing could keep me away.
This show apparently details
Lecter’s life before he is outed as
a serial killer, and his work in
aiding criminal investigations.
I can only hope for it to be as
good as I want it to be.
“suPernaTural” — CW
I’m only on season 2 of
“Supernatural,” and I’m already
obsessed. I had to take a break
from the emotionally and physi-
cally heart-wrenching show, so I
could survive this second semes-
ter. But I willingly surrender my
social life this summer for this
show. My goal is to catch up to
season 8, which just finished air-
ing. If I’m not back next year, it is
because Dean Winchester, played
by Jensen Ackles, killed me with
his hottness. Or his brother Sam
Winchester, played by the very
tall Jared Padalecki, killed me
with his ridiculous bad luck.
If you want a taste of demons,
ghosts, angels, vamps, shape
shifters and the brothers hunting
them down, “Supernatural” is the
show for you.

C
anadian cult filmmaker
David Cronenberg has long
been acknowledged as the
father of body horror, a nasty little
sub-genre noted for externalizing
moral corruption through graphic
depictions of perversion (“Crash”),
decay (“Rabid”) and transfigura-
tion (“The Fly,” “Videodrome”).
Although Cronenberg himself has
since graduated to the comparatively
elegant ferocity of character dramas
like “A History of Violence” and
“Eastern Promises,” there has always
been a demand for him to return
to his blood-soaked, pustule-ridden
roots.
Instead, we’re treated to
“Antiviral,” a movie that would
be labeled Cronenbergian even if
it weren’t written and directed by
the master’s own flesh and blood.
Thirty-three-year-old Brandon
Cronenberg has crafted a cerebral
shocker that’s technically compa-
rable to his father’s earliest efforts,
even if it lacks the grotesque spark
of originality that made those films
seem so vital and viscerally fascinat-
ing. “Antiviral” could be described as
a sado-satire, an incisive yet humor-
less commentary on our culture’s
fetishization of celebrities, a practice
that dates back to sacrificial worship
and early Christians fighting over
the bones of their saints.
The film begins with a premise
worthy of Jonathan Swift and his “A
Modest Proposal.” Our protagonist,
the freckled, cadaverous Syd March
(Caleb Landry Jones), works for
the Lucas Clinic, a private hospital
whose clients pay for the privilege of
being injected with diseases harvest-
ed directly from their favorite stars,
a procedure thought to represent
a kind of biological Communion
between celebrities and their fans.
Unbeknownst to his co-workers, Syd
has been stealing viruses to sell to
Arvid (Joe Pingue), a black market
butcher who specializes in growing
“cell steaks,” mounds of edible tissue
cloned from famous flesh.
When he gets the chance to
sample an unknown virus from ail-
ing superstar Hannah Geist (Sarah
Gadon), Syd can’t resist the temp-
tation to inject himself with a few
drops of her blood, just to feel a bit
of her inside of him. A few days later,
the news breaks that Hannah has
died and Syd must face the terrifying
possibility that he may be infected
with whatever killed her. The rest
of the movie involves him trying
to solve the mystery of her death,
a mystery that ultimately leads to a
hallucinogenic maelstrom of des-
peration and madness.
Jones, fresh from emitting super-
sonic shrieks as the Irish superhero
Banshee in 2011’s “X-Men: First
Class,” has a zonked-out, almost
reptilian presence that reminds me
a great deal of David Bowie’s rapidly
deteriorating vampire character in
Tony Scott’s under-seen AIDS alle-
gory “The Hunger.” Some of the
film’s most striking imagery finds
him lurching around the exterior
of the clinic or inside his sterile,
sanitized apartment, a thermometer
clamped tight between his teeth,
waiting for the next horrific symp-
tom to reveal itself.
Cronenberg may not be destined
to share his old man’s status as a
morbid visionary, but he’s still a tal-
ented young filmmaker with good
visual instincts and no shortage of
imagination. If he’s able to devel-
op his own voice and break free
from fan expectations, “Antiviral”
could represent the beginning of a
long and interesting career. But if
he insists on remaining indebted to
his father’s obsessions, the Son of
Cronenberg runs the risk of becom-
ing the artistic equivalent of black
market clone meat: bland, derivative
and easily forgotten.

Kanrocksas returns with new lineup this summer
Thursday, May 2, 2013 PaGE 6a ThE uNIVErsITy daILy KaNsaN
Lawrence is known for hav-
ing an eclectic and vibrant music
scene. In 2011, Kansas City decid-
ed it was time to jump on board
by launching its very frst music
festival — Kanrocksas. Te festi-
val lasted two days and brought in
more than 20 musical guests and
about 100 thousand eager fans.
While the festival started with
the intent to be annual, it took a
break last summer. Due to con-
struction projects taking place at
the Kansas Speedway, the deci-
sion was made to hold of on the
event to keep the consistency of
the location.
Tis year, Kanrocksas is back
and has plenty to ofer. Te festi-
val will be returning to the Speed-
way, but other changes will take
place. Te frst noticeable difer-
ence is that in 2011, the festival
took place in early August, but
this time, it will happen in late
June. Tis will give fans and locals
a proper kick of to summer.
However, not all fans are look-
ing forward to the festival. Nathan
Lipsky, a senior from Prairie Vil-
lage, attended the inaugural festi-
val in 2011 and feels that this year
it doesn’t quiet compare.
“For having two years to pre-
pare for this festival, I feel that
there is a severe lack of star power
this time around,” he said. “Hope-
fully, the third time around, Kan-
rocksas will get it right because
having a local music festival is a
really great thing.”
Brianna Brown, a freshman
from Leawood, missed out on the
festival in 2011 and is anxious to
attend this year.
“I’m going because a bunch of
my favorite bands will be there,”
Brown said. “I’m most excited to
see Imagine Dragons and fun.”
Other headliners include: Pas-
sion Pit, MGMT, Pretty Lights,
Kendrick Lamar, Edward Sharpe
and the Magnetic Zeros, Yeah
Yeah Yeahs and many more.
Te festival will take place June
28-29.

other details, visit kanrocksas.

Stay cool with new summer styles
As the last weeks of school come
to a close and the weather slowly
heats up, we’ll soon be trading in
our books and jeans for swimsuits
and shorts. Summer can be a dif-
cult time to dress, as humidity and
heat always conquer hairdos and
make up.
Dressing for summer requires a
handful of must-have accessories.
For starters, sandals have taken
a turn for the 2013 season. Sum-
mer footwear has been updated
with strappy sandals, both fat
and heeled. Chunky block heeled
shoes are also hot for the upcom-
ing season, rather than platform
heels or thong sandals.
Hats are another item that will
come in handy this summer. Trade
in your baseball cap for a wide-
brimmed fedora or foppy hat. Te
oversized options are a great way
to hide lake-washed or humidity-
stricken hair. Tese accessories are
always the easiest way to spice up
a simple outft. Sunglasses are the
same way — not only do they keep
you from blinding yourself, but
they automatically make your look
appear more polished than before.
Classic Ray Bans and aviators are
always good go-to’s, though new
styles are popping up everywhere.
Try a cat eye or another diferent
shape to give your summer shades
an update.
We’re all familiar with the very
popular denim cutof short trend.
It exploded last year and will
surely stick around for another
summer season. Te trend may
be responsible for summer’s new
go-to pant, destroyed denim boy-
friend jeans. Te relaxed ft looks
best with simple pairings, such as
heeled sandals and a plain t-shirt.
On warmer days when stif den-
im pieces are the last things you
want to put on, the handiest cloth-
ing to have are simple, lightweight
dresses. Sporty A-line and maxi
cuts are the season’s best picks.
What’s even better is that these
styles fatter every body type, can
be worn anywhere and can easily
be thrown on over a swimsuit.
Wherever your summer takes
you, be sure to have these sum-
mer must-haves ready. Te staples
will make dressing for hot weather
simple and easy but still stylish.

NEW YORK — PepsiCo is once
again learning the risks of celeb-
rity partnerships afer an ad for
Mountain Dew was criticized for
portraying racial stereotypes and
making light of violence toward
women.
Te soda and snack food com-
pany said it immediately pulled the
60-second spot afer learning that
people found it
was ofensive.
Te ad was part
of a series devel-
oped by African-
American rap-
per Tyler, Te
Creator, and de-
picted a battered
white woman on
crutches being
urged to identify
a suspect out of a lineup of black
men.
A goat character known as Fe-
licia is included in the lineup and
makes threatening comments to
the woman, such as “Ya better not
snitch on a playa” and “Keep ya
mouth shut.”
Te woman eventually screams
“I can’t do this, no no no!” and
runs away. Te word “do” is in ap-
parent reference to the sof drink’s
“Dew It” slogan.
Mountain Dew, known for
its neon color and high cafeine
content, is generally marketed to
younger men and sometimes at-
tempts to have edgier ads. But the
controversy over its latest spot il-
lustrates the fne line that compa-
nies must walk when trying to be
hip.
In fact, Mountain Dew also was
criticized recently because of its
endorsement deal with Lil Wayne,
whose rap lyrics compared a
rough sex act to the tortuous death
of Emmett Till, a black teen who
was murdered in 1955 for alleg-
edly whistling at a white woman.
Last month, Reebok also ended its
relationship with Rick Ross afer
he rapped about giving a woman a
drug to have his way with her.
Laura Ries, president of Ries
& Ries, a marketing frm based
in Atlanta, said companies that
want the “street
cred” of a celeb-
rity may end up
losing control of
the message they
want to convey.
If PepsiCo had
created an ad for
Mountain Dew,
for example, she
said it might not
have been con-
sidered edgy or
cool. But by handing over control
to a celebrity, she said the compa-
ny ran the risk of having an ad that
wasn’t appropriate.
PepsiCo Inc., based in Purchase,
N.Y., said it understood how the
ad could be ofensive.
“We apologize for this video
and take full responsibility,” the
company said in an updated state-
ment late Wednesday afernoon.
“We have removed it from all
Mountain Dew channels and Tyler
is removing it from his channels as
well.”
Jen Ryan, a spokeswoman for
PepsiCo, said the company learned
from its consumer relations team
on Tuesday that people found the
ad ofensive. She declined to ex-
plain the approval process for the
ad but said it was never meant to
run on TV.
A publicist for Tyler, the Cre-
ator did not immediately respond
to a message seeking comment.

The four branches of the KU
ROTC program are poised to
come together this Saturday for
their annual parade and joint-ser-
vices tournament. The festivities
are meant to both celebrate the
graduation of the senior cadets
and commission them into active
service. “I’m very excited for the
event because it is one of the
few opportunities that all four
branches have to come togeth-
er and have fun,” said Matthew
Mulheran, a member of the Air
Force ROTC.
The festivities kick off bright
and early at 9 a.m. when time the
cadets will be marching through
Memorial Stadium in complete
formal attire. Once the formalities
have been observed, the cadets
will break off into squadrons
within their respective branches
and compete in a number of phys-
ical competitions.
Cadets will compete at
Robinson Gymnasium and
Field in sporting events such as
Volleyball, Basketball, Ultimate
Firsbee and Flag Football. Along
with the sporting events, cadets
will compete in military contests
such as tug of war, ammo can
lift, log sit-ups, and the maneuver
under fire exercise.
At the end of the day, once the
scores have been recorded, the
branch with the highest score will
be awarded the Captain’s Cup.
This traveling trophy remains in
the possession of the winning ser-
vice and serves as bragging rights
until next year’s competition.
Although this stands as a com-
petition and a trophy is awarded,
at the end of this day, the true
winners will be the senior cadets
that will be moving on to serve in
our armed services. “It will be a
little bittersweet to see the seniors
leave because we will obviously
miss them but we know that they
are moving onto bigger and better
things.” said Mulheran.
Students that find themselves
with ample free time this Saturday
should consider coming out and
supporting these students who
will be fighting for our freedom
in the near future.
Despite the friendly nature of
the competition Mulheran, has
no doubts that “Air Force will fly,
fight and win.”

It took weeks for artist Patrick
Dougherty and his crew to construct
“The Bedazzler” in front of Spooner
Hall in 2009. A swirl of maple and
dogwood saplings wrapped around
a large dying elm tree became an
outdoor getaway for students and
campus visitors. During its 27
months, “The Bedazzler” hosted
picnics, classes and even a few wed-
ding proposals.
Using chainsaws on a summer
day in 2011, it took just a few hours
for landscaping crews to carve “The
Bedazzler” into wood-chip sized
pieces. A rare tree virus finally
killed the elm, but it brought to light
the importance of preserving and
enhancing historic landscapes and
open spaces across campus.
As time has passed and cam-
pus has been forced to expand, the
importance of trees hasn’t faded.
The summer-day landscaping crews
gathered around “The Bedazzler,”
sizing up the iconic tree, while stu-
dents, faculty and other Lawrence
natives simultaneously huddled
around in disdain. Emotion flooded
campus, as the disease-stricken tree
was cut down. It was evident the
elm was much more than a tree.
Trees are more than protection
from the blistering summer sun and
wicked Kansas wind. If one thing
is for sure, it’s the University’s love
of trees. So much in fact, trees out-
number students. There are enough
trees on the Lawrence campus alone
to fill the stands of Allen Fieldhouse
nearly twice.
The campus tree count grew to
29,536 earlier this week when 11
new crabapples were planted near
Fraser Hall. The trees were installed
with the help of more than 30 volun-
teers, the Center for Sustainability’s
Campus Tree Advisory Board and
other campus organizations at the
Replant Mount Oread event.
An event originally established in
March of 1878 by Chancellor James
Marvin to celebrate Arbor Day has
since resulted in the planting of
more than 100 different varieties of
trees such as walnut, elm, oak, hack-
berry, evergreen, redbud, honey
locust saplings and crabapple. Last
March, more than 134 years later,
Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little
established the annual Replant
Mount Oread event, in efforts to
expand campus’ environmentally
friendly landscape and gain “Tree
Campus USA” status.
“Our historic green space, from
the very start when you look at
Potter Lake, Marvin Grove, just the
open space that has been preserved
on this campus is a sign that we
value green space,” Livingood said.
“We value our connection to nature
through the campus setting.”
Long before the Tree Campus
USA program and the Center
for Sustainability’s Campus Tree
Advisory Board, dozens of elm trees
lined Jayhawk Boulevard through-
out the 1950s. The canopy of trees
acted as a natural barrier from the
elements and the importance of
landscape was prominent, regard-
less of distinctions. This summer,
efforts to rebuild the canopy will
begin.
“We saw an opportunity to engage
students in planting trees and help
rebuild our connection with the
green spaces on campus,” said Jeff
Severin, director of the Center for
Sustainability and Campus Tree
Advisory Board member.
However, the University’s tree
population is decreasing faster than
than they can be replaced because
of diseases, lack of room for roots to
grow, frigid temperatures and his-
toric droughts. These conditions are
threatening one of the most envi-
ronmentally friendly landscapes in
the nation.
It takes more than a few dozen
shovels and trees to obtain the cov-
eted Tree Campus USA status from
the Arbor Day Foundation. But
the efforts are paying off and the
University is one of only two Kansas
universities with the distinction.
“This year, for the first time, we
were designated a Tree Campus
USA,” Severin said.
The Tree Campus USA Program
recognizes campuses for develop-
ing and promoting both healthy
trees and student involvement. In
efforts for the University to earn
“Tree Campus USA” status, five
Arbor Day Foundation standards
had to be fulfilled. The first was the
establishment of a steering com-
mittee, KU Campus Tree Advisory
Board (CTAB). In addition to
other requirements, a strict 1:1 tree
replacement plan was to be created
as part of the University’s larger Tree
Care Plan.
“Each individual construction
project is responsible for replacing
any trees that have to be removed
during the project,” said Peg
Livingood, Office of Design and
Construction Management project
manager. “In our construction proj-
ects, we really do press for one for
one, if not even two for one in some
cases.”
The main concern of the Center
for Sustainability’s CTAB is the
prominence of trees throughout
campus. The 12-member board
was created, “to help maintain and
enhance the beauty of the campus
landscape, as well as to assist with
the preservation and revitalization
of our historic green spaces,” accord-
ing to the CTAB mission statement.
“It’s really aimed at preserving
and enhancing the green spaces that
we have, because we are losing a lot
of trees to disease, storm damage
and in some cases, construction,”
Severin said.
The Center for Sustainability
isn’t alone in its efforts to keep the
tree population healthy and grow-
ing. KU Endowment Association
and the student group KU Student-
Run Tree Farm are also lending
a hand to fund a small-scale stu-
dent tree farm located at the KU
Student Farm and medicinal plant
garden northwest of 23rd and Iowa
streets. The Capstone course in the
Environmental Studies Department
gives students the opportunity to
operate a small-scale student-run
tree farm, for which the ultimate
long-term goal is to supply the
University with trees transplanted
from the farm.
“Trees are just symbolic of tra-
dition here at KU and the ongo-
ing commitment to sustainability,”
said Emma Donachie, a junior from
Dallas majoring in environmental
studies. “There is an entire depart-
ment dedicated to landscape. It’s a
huge part of campus.”

I
t took until Monday, April
29th, 2013, but the world of
sports finally started catching
up to the world outside of it.
Current NBA player Jason
Collins declared to the world that
he is gay.
Collins isn’t the first gay player
in major league sports. Far from
it. Statistically speaking, there
have been hundreds of gay players
that have competed in professional
sports.
However, until Monday, all of
those players had to remain clos-
eted, at least until they retired. The
pressure to live up to “masculine”
stereotypes both within the locker
room and outside of it caused these
players to feel the need to lie to
other people about who they really
were. Sometimes, it caused them
to have to lie to themselves.
Collins’ courageous act changed
all this. No one wanted to be the
first openly gay active player in
sports. Doing so would place the
spotlight on even the most anony-
mous player. Collins used to be
that anonymous player; now he is a
household name.
Sports needed this. The world
always seems to think that sports
is exempt from reality, as if it pos-
sesses a cheat code that keeps it
from facing the issues that honest
Americans face every day. Nothing
could be further from the truth,
and ignoring those issues never
made them subside. It simply
bottled them up.
Not everyone concurs with this
sentiment. Ex-Pittsburgh Steeler
Hines Ward postulated that the
NFL was not ready for a gay player.
It may be a newsflash to Ward, but
the NFL has gay players that take
the field every Sunday. Asking
them to remain closeted does not
change or suppress their sexuality.
Rather, it asks them to do some-
thing no person should have to do,
and that is pretend to be someone
you are not.
Ward’s views seem to be an
anomaly. Equally as important as
Collins’ declaration has been the
public acceptance of it. Athletes
such as Kobe Bryant and LeBron
James have publicly supported
Collins, implicitly supporting
all athletes who are questioning
whether to come out of the closet.
Actions speak louder than
words, and this fight is not over
just because prominent figures
vocalized their support. It remains
to be seen how Collins will be
treated when the novelty of his
story wears off, and he laces up his
sneakers to fight a battle on the
court rather than off it. Hopefully,
these words of support aren’t sim-
ply the product of public relations
teams seeking to capitalize on an
obvious opportunity. It’s the reac-
tion when the cameras are off that
will be the most telling.
If that reaction is anything but
a continual flow of support, sports
will fall behind the times once
again. More and more people have
begun to see sexuality for what it is:
one characteristic that contributes
to, but does not define, a person.
Monday represented a monu-
mental moment in both sports
and the gay rights movement.
Nevertheless, there is still much to
be done.
But it certainly is a step in the
right direction.

Track squad ready for Big 12 championship
Bell lAp
Track squads have high expec-
tations for Big 12 Championship
Te Kansas track and feld team
travels south to Waco, Texas, this
weekend for the Big 12 Outdoor
Championships. Te women have
a goal of sweeping the conference
afer winning the Indoor Champi-
onships in February, and the men
have individuals who have aspi-
rations of becoming conference
champions at the meet hosted by
Baylor University.
Te women, who currently
rank No. 2 in the nation, have
been ranked in the top-fve of the
NCAA for the last twenty weeks
according to the U.S. Track &
Field and Cross Country Coaches
Association. Teir narrow vic-
tory over the rest of the league
in Ames, Iowa, at the Big 12 In-
door Championships brought the
university its frst male or female
track and feld title since 1983.
Te women will be led by a
handful of athletes who will look
to pick up valuable team points in
the feld. Junior Natalia Bartnovs-
kaya, who holds the school record
in the pole vault and an NCAA
Indoor Championship under her
belt, will have a chance to win her
frst conference title.
Horizontal jumpers Francine
Simpson, Sydney Conley and
Andrea Geubelle will all have an
opportunity to
win the long
jump competi-
tion. Te three
Jayhawks have
the three far-
thest jumps in
the conference
this season.
Te men will
be led on the track by senior Kyle
Clemons and sophomore Michael
Stigler. Clemons has the fastest
400 meter time among Big 12
athletes this year, while Stigler
holds that honor in the 400 meter
hurdles.
Joining that duo on the 4x400
meter team are
s o p h o mo r e s
Kenneth Mc-
Cuin and Mi-
chael Hester.
Teir season-
best time of
3:05.93 is the
seventh fastest
time in the na-
tion this outdoor season.
On the track, the women will
try to repeat as champions in the
4x400 meter relay. Te team of
Denesha Morris, Paris Daniels,
Taylor Washington and Diamond
Dixon won the event last year in
a time of 3:28.10 on their way to
qualifying for the NCAA meet.
Daniels, a senior sprinter, will
attempt to win the 200 meter
dash at the Big 12 Outdoor meet
for consecutive years. Her season
best time of 22.76 is the fastest
200-meter time in the confer-
ence this season.
Heather Bergmann, Jessica
Maroszek and Alena Krechyk,
who hold the school records in
the javelin, discus and hammer
throw respectively, will look to
gain points in the throwing events
in helping the women compete
for the conference title.
Te Kansas women defeated
the University of Texas by just
2.5 points at the Big 12 Indoor
Championships in February, and
there is a good possibility that
the team championship will be
decided in the fnal race once
again, the 4x400 meter relay.
With the NCAA Outdoor
Championships more than a
month away, both the men and
women’s track and feld squads
are solely focused on the Big
12 meet this weekend, hoping
to bring more hardware back to
Lawrence.
Te 2013 Big 12 Outdoor
Championships are this Friday
through Sunday at the Hart-
Patterson Track Complex on the
campus of Baylor University.

Kansas baseball blanked the
Baker Wildcats in an 8-0 victory,
its second win over the Wildcats
this season, at Hoglund Ballpark.
A Jayhawk youth movement led
the way with six underclassmen
taking the field in Wednesday’s
starting lineup. Freshman first
baseman Marcus Wheeler took
full advantage of his opportunity
in the lineup. Wheeler finished
the day hitting two-of-three at the
plate with a two-RBI double in the
sixth inning.
“I was just trying to be aggres-
sive,” Wheeler said. “I knew I had
guys on second and third, so I had
to get the job done. I got an early
fastball and let that one go by. The
next pitch was a changeup. I got it
with the end of the bat and luckily
it stayed in play.”
The Kansas freshman doesn’t
often get the opportunity to grace
the first base side of the Jayhawk
lineup.
“I just try to make sure I come
out strong,” Wheeler said. “I’m
glad I got the opportunity to play
and help the team get the win.”
The Jayhawks struggled to
dial in the bats early in the game.
Kansas hitters couldn’t plate a run
in the first five innings of play.
Wheeler’s two-RBI shot was the
catalyst the Kansas lineup needed
as they scored three runs in both
the seventh and eighth innings.
“It took us a while to get going,
but at the score at the end of the
game is really all that matters,”
Wheeler said.
In the seventh, senior third
baseman Alex DeLeon hit a deep
ball that caromed off the wall in
left field for an RBI double, while
sophomore right fielder Connor
McKay added to the scoring with
an RBI single making the lead 5-0.
DeLeon added to his season
home run total with a towering
ball hit into the trees beyond the
right-center field wall. DeLeon’s
big fly is his seventh of the season
and padded his three-for-five day
at the plate.
“That was quite a bomb,” senior
right-handed pitcher Tanner
Poppe said. “It probably went 460
or bounced off Naismith I don’t
even know. It was a good shot.”
For DeLeon it was a simple as
see the ball and hit the ball.
“I got a good piece of it,” DeLeon
said. “It was a good pitch to hit,
and the wind just carried it out.”
Kansas senior right-handed
pitcher Tanner Poppe was focused
from the start of the game for
the first time in quite some time.
Poppe’s ongoing battles with a
shoulder injury have resulted in
several short outings of late for the
Girard, Kan., native.
“This is the first time I’ve felt
completely 100 percent all year,”
Poppe said. “It was nice to go out
there. My arm felt good. It was just
nice to go out there and feel good
for once.”
Poppe’s struggles early in the
year often centered on lack of com-
mand and high pitch counts.
“That was my biggest issue lead-
ing up to today was just throwing
strikes and commanding the off-
speed pitches,” Poppe said. “I was
able to do that today so that was
a step forward in my progression
to get back to everything I did in
the past.”
Poppe pitched seven innings
with seven strikeouts allowing a
lone hit in his shutout appearance.
The Jayhawks return to Big 12
play for a home series against the
Baylor Bears. The series starts
Friday night at 6 p.m. in Hoglund
Ballpark.

NBA player should be defned by play
F
or Jason Collins, a 7-foot, 255-
pound backup center for the
Washington Wizards, this past
NBA season may be his last.
The 12-year veteran from Stanford
has endured a long, successful stint as a
bench player for the Wizards, the New
Jersey Nets, the Memphis Grizzlies, the
Minnesota Timberwolves, the Atlanta
Hawks and the Boston Celtics, but the
end of this NBA season may mark the
end of his professional career.
At 34, he has seen his share of indi-
vidual and team success in the playoffs,
but he is far from a household name, and
his best seasons are distant memories (he
topped out at 6.4 points per game and 6.1
rebounds per game in 2004 for the Nets).
After all, it would behoove a team to
sign a younger, more vigorous player
with similar size and numbers because
Collins won’t be selling tickets on his
name alone—well, that might change in
light of the recent news…
Despite his freakish size and undis-
puted leadership coming off the bench,
few NBA teams will be taking a chance
on Collins for one reason. A reason unre-
lated to his skill-set or athleticism.
Employment for a center in his mid-
thirties, is a risky venture to begin with
due to possible bum knees, diminishing
foot speed or a noticeable drop in muscle
mass and coordination. However, Collins
will be a dangerous signing because of
his sexual orientation.
On Monday, April 29, Collins dis-
closed his gay preferences to Sports
Illustrated, making him the first active
athlete from a major American sport to
come out publicly. In a declaration that
will hit the newsstands on May 6th,
Collins prefaced with “I’m a 34-year-old
NBA Center. I’m black. And I’m gay.”
In a captivating interview with Good
Morning America, Collins proclaimed
that loyalty to his team was what kept
him from coming out earlier and loyalty
to mankind is the reason why he chose to
come out now. The gravity of the Boston
Marathon bombings made him realize
that time was of the essence. The time to
tell the truth was now.
Like they were when Jackie Robinson
attempted to break the color barrier,
general managers have reason to be leery
of signing Collins. The same questions
will be asked, but with the word “gay”
replacing the word “black.” How will an
[openly] gay man fit in an NBA locker
room? Will he be more of a cost than
a benefit? More of a distraction than a
piece of the puzzle?
It was inevitable that an active profes-
sional athlete would come out or have
his/her orientation revealed in a TMZ
scandal. Somebody had to do it, and
Jason Collins was just the man for the
job. And he did it on his terms, which
made the situation easier to digest. My
advice: Sign Jason Collins like Branch
Rickey signed Jackie Robinson.
Collins is a professional in every
sense of the word. He has no interest in
fame. He just grabs rebounds, executes
his assignment and plays unrelenting
team defense. Like many working class
Americans, sometimes the little things
he does get overlooked. Some people are
gay; some people are straight. It makes
no difference. He can be that trailblazer
on a sports platform.

The quality appearances just keep
coming for Kansas. senior right-handed
pitcher Tanner Poppe went seven shutout
innings giving up just one hit with his
seven strikeouts. The Jayhawks middle
relievers haven’t had much to do of late.
Coach Price said the bullpen remains
ready regardless of pitching fewer in-
nings.
The storyline of the baylor season has
come on the mound with a starting rota-
tion carrying a 3.38 eRa into the week-
end series at Hoglund. saturday starter
austin stone leads the rotation with a
3-2 record and 2.81 eRa. Friday starter
Max Garner is the veteran of the staff. as
a senior he’s 3-4 with a 3.21 era.
In the game against the baker Wild-
cats, alex Deleon added another home
run to his season total. His seven big
fies lead the team in that category. al-
though six underclassmen started the
game, Kansas still managed 14 hits
and eight runs in the 8-0 victory. The
Jayhawks have struggled to plate runs
of late, with the strong winter weather
expected over the weekend, it could be a
tough watch for fans of hitting.
baylor hitters are batting a team av-
erage of just .268 on the season. Much
like the Jayhawks, baylor is focused on
small ball tactics this season. The team
has hit a total of 14 home runs on the
season. senior right felder Nathan Orf
leads the squad with a .389 average. Orf
is one of two baylor bears hitting above
the .300 mark. senior third baseman Cal
Towey is hitting .307 on the season.
The Jayhawks rebounded after the
weekend in West Virginia against Wich-
ita state. They continued to play solid
defense against baker. Outside of one,
poorly judged ball dropped by sophomore
left felder Michael suiter in left feld,
Kansas was nearly perfect on the game.
Kansas continues to hang its hat on
solid defense and pitching, a style quite
similar to the baylor bears.
The bears have committed 56 errors
on the season. senior third baseman
Cal Towey is the most prolifc felder
with 8 errors on the season. Of the
regular starters only junior left felder
Grayson Porter remains perfect on the
year. as always, the Jayhawks will put
pressure on the big 12 infeld by run-
ning early and often to put the bears
on their heels.

Jayhawks play No. 1 sooners
in weekend series at arrocha

Te Jayhawk sofball team to
take on the No.1 in the nation
Oklahoma Sooners in a three game
series that has been pushed to a
Saturday double-header and game
on Sunday due to expected inclem-
ent weather.
In what has become a recur-
ring theme this season for the Jay-
hawks, Mother Nature once again
has changed the team’s schedule.
Wednesday’s game against in-state
rival Wichita State was canceled
due to weather and this weekend’s
series games had to be changed to
just two days instead of a full week-
end series.
Kansas (30-15, 5-7) will go into
the series against the Sooners (43-
3, 11-1), with the Jayhawks leading
the Big 12 for the 12th straight week
in batting average, hitting at .344.
Freshman Alex Hugo has hit three
home runs in the last fve games
and also holds the freshman home
run record of 14 runs, while senior
lef felder Maggie Hull sits tied for
the Kansas career RBI crown. One
more RBI will break the record of
135, currently held by former Jay-
hawk and current sofball color
analyst Liz Kocon. Hull continues
to sit atop of the Big 12 in batting
average, hitting .451 on the season,
and is on pace to break her own
University record of hitting .409 for
a season.
Te Sooners (43-3, 11-1) lead
the NCAA in ERA at 1.14 as a
team, while only letting opponents
hit .161. Tey are also second in
the Big 12, with a batting average
of .338. Te Sooners also have four
hitters in the top 10 of batting aver-
age in the Big 12, and have the top
two pitchers in ERA. Te Sooners
are coming of losing in to the Ala-
bama Crimson Tide in the NCAA
championship last season. Te
Sooners’ potent ofense and great
pitching will pose a tough challenge
for the Jayhawks. Te Sooners have
won fve straight games and have
only one conference loss to Texas.
Te Jayhawks will try to score
another upset against a top-25
team this weekend, but will have
their work cut out for them against
the top-ranked Sooners. Tis
weekend’s series will be a classic
matchup between the Jayhawks’
top-hitting team and the Sooners’
dominant pitching. Te frst game
of the series is Saturday at 2 p.m. at
Arrocha Ballpark.

Baylor visits Lawrence for Big 12 matchup
The Jayhawks enter their series
with the Baylor Bears this week-
end at Hoglund Ballpark with just
six games remaining in the 2013
Big 12 schedule.
The Bears
enter the week-
end with a 25-20
record in sole
possession of
second place
with their 11-6
record. The
Bears’ three-
game winning
streak can be
credited in large
part to their
starting pitching rotation that car-
ries a 3.38 ERA into the series.
“Their pitching has been fab-
ulous,” coach Ritch Price said.
“They’ve been winning low scor-
ing games; so really for them it’s
starting pitching and the way they
play defense, very similar to us,
that wins them games.”
Coach Price said solid pitch-
ing on the Jayhawks part is key
to a Kansas series victory against
Baylor. The Kansas pitching staff
has been rock solid of late giving
up only five runs in the last five
games.
“Their play-
ing great of late
as well,” senior
r i g ht - ha nde d
pitcher Thomas
Taylor said. “We
have to go out
and get after
them and put
ourselves back
in position to get
back to playing
well and to a regional.”
The Kansas weekend pitching
rotation suffered through a tough
series of one-run losses in their
meetings against the West Virginia
Mountaineers last weekend. The
rotation is trying to refocus and
get back to their normal level in
the Baylor series.
“That was a really tough series
loss,” Taylor said. “Every game was
a one run loss. We pitched great
and played great defense, but we
just have to put it behind us.”
The Baylor lineup focuses on
small ball tactics much like the
Jayhawks this season. As a team
the Bears are batting .268 on the
season. With just two hitters oper-
ating at averages above .300.
The Kansas weather won’t give
up on the Jayhawks. With 10 games
either rescheduled or cancelled
already this season, the Jayhawks
face another tough weekend with
winter weather forecasted in May.
The dreary weather doesn’t change
much for the Jayhawks.
“One thing this team has done
is they’ve grinded every week,”
Coach Ritch Price said. “They like
each other. There’s really good
team chemistry there. They like
playing in Hoglund Ballpark, and
I’m actually glad to see the weath-
er forecast that it’s going to be
cold, weary and damp. The Texas
kids don’t like that too much.”
The Jayhawks aren’t afraid of
the bad weather. They’ve played
in it all season. In fact, Kansas
players are relishing the thought
of playing in the elements.
“It’s going to be a tough series,”
DeLeon said. “It’s supposed to be
really cold here which is actually
an advantage to us. We’re used to
playing in the cold, and they’re
from Texas so it’s actually prob-
ably an advantage for us.”
With the weather on their side
and the weekend rotation intact,
the Jayhawks start their climb
back up the Big 12 ladder Friday at
6 p.m., in Hoglund Ballpark. The
Jayhawks’ Thomas Taylor will face
the Baylor Bears’ Friday starter
Max Garner.

Te Big 12 rowing teams are
heading to Kansas City, Kan., as
the Jayhawks will host the Big 12
Championship on Saturday. Tis
will be the frst time fve teams will
compete as West Virginia joins
Kansas, Kansas State, Oklahoma
and Texas at the regatta.
“We are hop-
ing all the teams
do well. Rowing
is a team sport,”
Coach Rob Cat-
loth said. “Our
goals are to
place as high in
the Big 12 as we
can.”
Te teams will compete in six
events: fourth varsity eight, third
varsity eight, second varsity four,
frst varsity four, second varsity
eight and frst varsity eight. All
schools will race together in each
race, unless a school doesn’t have a
boat for a particular race.
Team points are given out for
each race depending on which
place the boat earned. Fourth var-
sity eight is worth the least amount
of points while the frst varsity
eight race is worth the most. Final
standings are based on how many
points each school accumulates
over the course of all six races.
“I think Oklahoma is coming
in a heavy favorite,” Catloth said.
“Tey haven’t lost to another Big
12 school this season.”
In the seeded races (frst and
second varsity eight and frst var-
sity four), Oklahoma is seeded
frst in each. Kansas is seeded
ffh in the frst varsity eight, third
in the second varsity eight and
fourth in the frst varsity four.
In the past, Texas has domi-
nated the Big 12 Championships.
In the four-year history of the
event, Texas has placed frst in all
of them. Last year, Texas narrowly
edged Oklahoma for the title 105
points to 104.
For Kansas, look for the sec-
ond varsity eight boat to continue
to have success. Te team is com-
ing of a two-week period without
competition. Two weeks ago at the
Lake Natoma Invitational, Kan-
sas competed against many teams
ranked in the top 20. Te team
ended up winning two races and
losing seven. Te weekend before
that, Kansas had a strong showing
at the Knecht Cup with two boats,
varsity four and second varsity
four, winning gold in the Grand
Finals.
Te Big 12 Championship will
be held on Wyandotte County
Lake in Kansas City, Kan., Sat-
urday, May 4. Te frst race will
start at 9:40 a.m., and the awards
ceremony will follow the compe-
tition at 11:50 a.m. Te winner of
the Big 12 Championship does not
earn a bid to the NCAA Champi-
onship. Kansas also competes in
Conference USA, which does have
an automatic qualifying bid, and
that conference tournament will
be May 18.

MOSCOW — Seeing the presi-
dent slam face-first into the ground
after falling from a speeding horse
would be a shock to any nation.
In authoritarian Turkmenistan,
many residents didn’t even get the
chance.
Presi dent Gurbangul i
Berdymukhamedov apparently
wasn’t seriously injured Sunday
when his horse stumbled and he
pitched into the dirt track at the
hippodrome on the outskirts of
the capital, Ashgabat. But the fall
was certainly a wound to the pride
of the 55-year-old Central Asian
leader, whose all-powerful person-
ality cult portrays him as effort-
lessly competent.
Thousands of people were in the
stands for the race that celebrated
Turkmenistan’s renowned desert
racehorse breed, the Akhal-Teke.
But state television’s video of the
race cut off just before the fall and
the extensive written reports on the
event didn’t mention the plunge.
All domestic broadcasting in
Turkmenistan is state-run; news-
papers are either state-run or under
heavy government supervision.
Media criticism of the president is
non-existent and elaborate praise
of him is ubiquitous in this nation
of 5 million, wedged between the
Caspian Sea and Iran, Afghanistan
and Uzbekistan.
Turkmenistan’s security agencies
reportedly went into high gear to
try to block video or images of the
president’s fall from slipping out
to the rest of the world. The oppo-
sition-in-exile group Gundogar
cited witnesses as saying police
were carefully checking the com-
puters, tablets, mobile phones and
cameras of departing passengers
at Ashgabat’s airport. The horse
celebration had attracted an array
of foreign horse enthusiasts.
Video obtained by The
Associated Press shows a rider fall-
ing when his horse stumbles just
after crossing the finish line in first
place. State media reported that
Berdymukhamedov won the race.
The horse also fell, but quick-
ly got up, showing a slight limp.
Berdymukhamedov, however, lay
motionless. Within seconds, sev-
eral dozen men in dark suits and
one in traditional garb including
a high white sheepskin hat rushed
onto the track, and an ambulance
soon arrived.
The man who shot the video
spoke on condition of anonymity
for fear that divulging his name
could have negative repercussions
on his livelihood. He said the presi-
dent reappeared about half an hour
later to accept the winner’s prize —
about $11 million.
State TV showed the president
accepting the award, which he
said would be used to improve
Turkmenistan’s horse breeding.
The choreographed winning of
the race — the nearest challenger
was obviously throttling back his
mount in the home stretch — the
media censorship and the reported
tough security response at the air-
port all reflect Turkmenistan’s two
decades of stifling authoritarian-
ism.
Since becoming independent
in the 1991 collapse of the Soviet
Union, Turkmenistan has been an
extreme example of a one-party
state.
Berdymukhamedov, who
became president after Saparmurat
Niyazov’s death in 2006, has put
aside some of Niyazov’s more
extreme measures, but he has not
opened up Turkmenistan’s politics
or media. His own personality cult
includes such feats as winning last
year’s maiden automobile race in
Turkmenistan, even though he
supposedly wasn’t scheduled to
take part and asked to join only at
the last minute.
State media reports about the
president’s actions overflow with
admiration and delight.
“The audience greeted President
Gurbanguli Berdymukhamedov,
who finished first — demonstrat-
ing great skills of horse riding, the
will to win, firmness and courage
— with a storm of applause,” the
state news agency TDH reported
after Sunday’s race.

NEW YORK (AP) — Back in the
series, now back to Boston.
The Celtics are two victories from
NBA history, and from extending
the Knicks’ postseason futility in a
most improbable manner.
Kevin Garnett had 16 points and
18 rebounds and the Celtics stayed
alive in the playoffs, cutting New
York’s lead to 3-2 with a 92-86 vic-
tory Wednesday night.
The Celtics will host Game 6 on
Friday night, needing two victories
to become the first NBA team to
overcome a 3-0 deficit to win a
series.
“We’re still down. Our mentality
has to be all-out,” Garnett said. “It
can’t be anything (else).”
Brandon Bass added 17 points,
steadying Boston as it shook off
an 11-0 deficit and pulled away in
the second half to stop the Knicks
again from achieving their first
playoff series victory since 2000.
“We didn’t panic and that’s some-
thing we’ve done, but we didn’t,”
coach Doc Rivers said. “I thought
once the game got back to that
five, six area, our guys were good
again.”
J.R. Smith, back from his one-
game suspension for elbowing
Jason Terry with the Knicks way
ahead late in Game 3, missed his
first 10 shots and finished 3 of 14
for 14 points.
Terry also scored 17 off the
bench.
Jeff Green scored 18 points
and Paul Pierce had 16 as he and
Garnett, the two franchise stal-
warts, extended this season — and
perhaps their Celtics careers — at
least one more game.
“Obviously being down 2-0 or
3-0 or whatever it was, we could
have folded shop. Nobody in here
is going to quit,” Terry said.
Carmelo Anthony scored 22
points but was just 8 of 24 in
another dismal shooting night for
the Knicks, who blew a big lead
in this game and now the series.
They face an unwanted trip back
to Boston instead of the rest this
aging roster could surely use before
the second round.
If they get there.
“I think we’re fine,” Knicks coach
Mike Woodson said. “Sure we
would’ve loved to close it out and
move on, but nobody said it would
be easy.”
The Knicks would host Game 7
on Sunday.
“I told you from Game 1 that
this wasn’t going to be a breeze,
it wasn’t going to be a walk in the
park, them guys were going to
fight and they’re showing some
fight right now,” Anthony said.
“They threw a couple punches at
us now and it’s time for us to do
the same.”
The Celtics were the first of
the eight NBA teams that have
come from 3-1 down, beating
Philadelphia in 1968, and put them-
selves on the short list of teams that
have erased a 2-0 deficit the next
year in the NBA Finals.
So perhaps it would be fitting
if they were the first to overcome
3-0.
“I think so. I mean, I think that
would be wonderful, and some-
one’s going to do it and I want it
to be us, obviously, since that’s
the situation we’re in,” Rivers said
before the game. “Someone will
do it, and I really want to be a part
of that.”
He’s still got a chance.
The Knicks limited the Celtics
to 75 points per game while win-
ning the first three, and nearly
came back to win Game 4 on
Sunday even without Smith. So
they felt good even after missing
their first chance to wrap it up,
when Anthony was 10 of 35 in an
overtime loss.
Point guard Raymond Felton
said the Knicks still feel in control
of the series “for sure.”
“I mean, this is what playoff
basketball is about. Yes, we wish
we could have swept them, yes
we wish we could have won that
game tonight. Sometimes things
don’t happen that way,” he added.
“Things aren’t always pretty, things
aren’t always the way you want
them to be. We’ve just got to grind
it out and go get a win.”
Though few of these players were
here for the streak, the Knicks were
perhaps a bit overconfident lead-
ing into the game for a franchise
that lost an NBA-record 13 straight
postseason games from 2001-12.
Smith said Tuesday he’d have
been playing golf instead of prac-
ticing had he played in Game 4,
and players wore black to the game
Wednesday as if they were heading
to the Celtics’ “funeral.”
The Celtics didn’t like it, with
reserve Jordan Crawford exchang-
ing words with Anthony and
Raymond Felton after the final
buzzer.
Forget the funeral.
“Well, we was going to a funeral,
but it looks like we got buried,”
Smith said. “Basketball is a very
humbling game.”
The second halves had belonged
to the Knicks in the series, but
the Celtics remained steady in the
third quarter, opening a 69-60 lead
on Terry’s 3-pointer with 41 sec-
onds left, and pushed it to 75-60
early in the fourth.

Kansas City royals pitcher luis Mendoza winds up in the frst inning of wednesday’s game against the tampa Bay rays at
Kauffman stadium.
KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Elliot
Johnson homered against his for-
mer team and the Kansas City
Royals rallied from an early five-
run hole, beating the Tampa Rays
9-8 on a cold, blustery Wednesday
night.
Lorenzo Cain and Jeff Francoeur
each drove in a pair of runs for the
Royals, who trailed 5-0 in the
third inning before slowly chip-
ping away at the Tampa Bay lead.
They eventually pulled ahead
with a five-run sixth off Rays
reliever Jake McGee (0-2), and
then held on through the final
three innings for their second
straight comeback win.
Bruce Chen (2-0) pitched
two scoreless innings in relief of
Royals starter Luis Mendoza, and
Greg Holland worked a perfect
ninth inning in a light drizzle for
his seventh save.
Tampa Bay jumped out to a
2-0 lead when Joyce homered for
the second straight game, and
Zobrist gave the Rays back-to-
back homers for the first time this
season. The solo shots also gave
Tampa Bay at least one homer in
16 straight games, setting a new
franchise record.
Kelly Johnson’s RBI double and
Desmond Jennings’ sacrifice fly
made it 4-0 in the second, and
Evan Longoria’s triple in the third
turned into another run on James
Loney’s base hit.
Kansas City clawed back in
the bottom half when Johnson
homered over the wall in right
field, his first home run since last
September when he was still with
the Rays.
Scott answered for Tampa Bay
with a solo shot in the fourth, but
the Royals scored again in the bot-
tom half when Gordon’s two-out
base hit cut the Rays’ lead to 6-2.
Kansas City kept peppering
Hellickson in the fifth, this time
with a leadoff double by Billy
Butler and an RBI triple by Cain.
Mike Moustakas followed with a
sacrifice fly to center field that
allowed Kansas City to get within
two runs.
The Royals finally pulled ahead
off McGee in the sixth.
They loaded the bases with
two outs for Butler, who hit a
liner right back at McGee that
the pitcher managed to knock
down but still scored a run. Eric
Hosmer then hit a grounder deep
in the hole at shortstop, and Yunel
Escobar’s error allowed the tying
run to score.
Cain followed with a blooper to
center that gave Kansas City the
lead, and Francoeur greeted new
reliever Kyle Farnsworth with a
two-run single that made it 9-6.
Tim Collins entered for the
Royals and coughed up most of
the lead on Loney’s RBI single
and a two-out single by Scott, but
Aaron Crow retired Jose Lobaton
to escape the seventh inning.
Crow pitched a perfect eighth
before Holland wrapped up the
win.
