The KU Student Speech-Language Hearing As-
sociation has always been active on campus, but
this years community contributions got the group
recognized for their work.
The group was one of the award winners at the
Student Involvement and Leadership Centers
end of the year
c e l e b r a t i o n
Thursday at the
Hawks Nest
in the Kansas
Union. The
group plans to
hold the event
annually. The
center received
more than 60
applications in
fve categories.
Jennifer Mei-
tl, KUSSH pres-
ident, said the
groups commu-
nity work con-
vinced its mem-
bers to apply
for the awards.
Meitl said it was
exciting for her
group to be rec-
ognized on the
university level.
This year
marked the
groups second-
annual research
conference. The
members cre-
ated the event
to connect KU
researchers with
local speech-
language and
hearing prac-
titioners who
needed to com-
plete continuing education. The beneft to the com-
munity made the effort worthwhile, Meitl said.
Wendy Rohleder-Sook won one of two adviser
of the year awards for her role with Kansas Con-
nections, one of the new organizations of the year.
Rohleder-Sook founded the group last spring after
meeting with several students from small towns,
who said making the transition to the larger Uni-
versity of Kansas was a challenge.
Kansas Connections aims to make small-town
students feel at home by creating a network to
help these students to realize theyre not alone in
struggling to adjust to college life, Rohleder-Sook
said. In the last year, the organization has expand-
ed to offering events and resources for current and
prospective students to boost membership.
Stefany Samp, member of the year honoree,
is the secretary for the Undergraduate Business
Council, the umbrella organization for student
groups in the School of Business. Samp was in-
volved in almost every project the group com-
pleted in the past year, including the revamping
of the groups newsletter The Link from a
four-page newsletter to a 32-page color publica-
tion. She plans on staying involved in the school
as a graduate student next year.

Strong programs
draw in Institute
By anne Weltmer
Kansan staff writer
The University of Kansas Edwards Campus be-
came the site of the fourth Confucius Institute in
the United States on Thursday.
It was dedicated by the Chinese vice minister
of education. The other three are in Washington,
D.C., Chicago, and New York City.
The Chinese Ministry of Education chose the
University of Kansas because of its strong and
well-known Chinese and East Asian Studies pro-
grams. The University and the state have both had
a successful relationship with China in the past.
The Institute goes beyond languages to cul-
ture, Todd Cohen, University spokesman, said.
The Confucius Institute will provide education
in the Chinese language, but it will also provide
a cultural education for businessmen and women
seeking to work in China.
Bill Tsutsui, the Institutes director, said it would
take several offces in Regnier Hall and would of-
fer non-credit classes for both KU students and
the community on subjects like business etiquette
and how Confuciusianism affects China.
It will also have cultural programming like flm
festivals, lectures and speech contests in Chinese,
and will often collaborate with the Center for East
Asian Studies on the Lawrence campus to bring
events here.
Were a public university and were supposed
to be serving Kansans, Tsutsui said, explaining the
programs the Institute would offer the community.

Most people concentrate
on the front end and what type
of grass worms eat. I thought,
well what about all the grass
that comes out the other end?
James said.
Hasiotis caught James while
he was on campus, a place James
rarely visits. Instead, James digs
in the worlds soils, in places
like the Philippines, the Carib-
bean and Fiji, looking for earth-
In Brazil, James recently re-
discovered an earthworm, called
Fimoscolex sporadochaetux,
which was declared extinct in
2003. No one had bothered
to look for the earthworm for
years, he said.
Just because something is
declared extinct doesnt mean it
is, James said. It just means no
one has gone to look for it.
His long-standing work part-
ner, George Brown, researcher
for the Brazilian Corporation
for Agricultural Research, tipped
him off on this search. Brown
continues to seek James help
because there is not an earth-
worm taxonomist in Brazil.
Though earthworms can help
link to other types of research,
like arthritis therapy, some peo-
ple fnd it hard to believe any-
one could make a living digging
in the dirt. James recalls a trip to
southwest Texas where he met
such criticism.
Avoiding the dismal motel
room, he found a construction
crew outside with the same idea.
Within minutes, James realized
they were far from like-minded.
After all, the crew was there to
dig into the earth to put in a gas
pipeline and James was there
digging for earthworms. The
crew drank beer while James
obliged them and listened to
their hunting stories. This may
have gone on until the question
came up, So what do you do
Sam? The conversation quick-
ly took a turn when James told
the crew what he told them.
One guy kept getting drunk-
er and madder. He was mad that
I could actually make a living
digging for earthworms and that
I work for a university, he said.
Maybe it is a rural male
thing, but not one wants to seem
like they are interested in formal
education. It is almost taboo.
And these guys were representa-
tives of that, James said. Still,
they laughed at him and asked
When are you going to get a
real job?
To which James replied, I
hope I dont have to.
Brown said that it is impor-
tant to fnd representatives of
all earthworm species because
they have many effects on the
soil and plant communities, and
in turn, human beings. He said
that understanding what they
do is just a step. Understanding
who they are and how to classify
them is their frst.
There are over 4,000 species
worldwide and James sets out
to fnd representatives of each
species and also collects worms
that may not be classifed. He
has about 400 un-named worms
in his lab now. Based on where
researchers have already gone,
he heads a different direction.
Sam is one of those adven-
ture-type persons who is not
afraid to go to far away places
and walk to the middle of no-
where to dig for worms, Brown
said, something that is increas-
ingly necessary to fnd new spe-
James interest in the interac-
tions between North Americas
grasses and grazers led him
down the dirty path of earth-
worm ecology. James noticed
earthworms wriggling through
bison manure and wondered
about the relationship, since
earthworms help plow the soil
by providing air and circulation.
No research had been published
on American grassland worms
and James decided that would
be a good place to start.
As a child growing up in
Iowa, he used earthworms for
bait when he went fshing. He
doesnt mind people using them
for bait but he does care if they
are being over-exploited.
Florida and Brazil have this
problem and the earthworms
there are in danger of extinction.
The baiting industry is regulated
in Florida now, he said, but it is
not in Brazil, although it is ille-
gal to gather wildlife without a
permit. The baiting rebels push-
ing their luck are helping James
in a way.
We see signs on the road that
say We Sell Earthworms so we
stop, look and well buy them if
they are interesting. And we pre-
serve them, he said. We ask
where they got them but they
wont always tell us.
Within a week, James will be
walking along the Louisiana
coast for specimens before going
to fnish his work in the Philip-
pines where he has worked ex-
tensively and intermittently over
the past few years. His family of
four accompanied him for six
months during one of his visits
in 2001. They assisted him in his
search in the remote woods.
James wife Joy said he was
the best person to travel with
because he observes more than
the average person. Though
they may not always get to share
in the knowledge because James
takes off on his wild worm
chase. She said once he started
a project he just kept going and
doesnt really need to stop to eat
and drink. Eight hours climb-
ing mountains in the rain forest
without rest and food was a bit
much for her and the kids how-
My oldest daughter Pearl got
in a bush that was covered with
leeches and she screamed, Im
covered with leeches and at the
same time we could hear Sam
up ahead yelling, I got a worm!
I got a big worm! she said. Its
always like that in a way, there is
always this kind of thing going
on. His travels never stop and
trips to the Amazon and Europe
are in the works.
If he had to do it all over again
he said he would be a geologist
and not a biologist.
I would do geology and
spend all day looking for rocks.
Wandering for worms is pretty
much similar in some ways
But for now, the KU research-
er continues trailblazing, dig-
ging for earthworms all around
the world.

The last confrmed measles
cases were in 2000, when two

against mumps, measles and
rubella, one before they are 18

portance of the poetry class for
his jailed students. For many
of the students, their incarcera-
tion is a time when they have
to slow down and think about
their lives. Jail time does give
them the opportunity for this,
Daldorph says. Artistic expres-
sion, whether in writing, paint-
ing, song, or any other way, is
often a vital way for them to
come to terms with their lives,
and to give a voice to their ex-
Daldorph says he got
hooked after he substituted
for the previous teacher a few
times and began teaching full-
time at the jail in 2001. For stu-
dents, the creative writing class
is a welcome distraction from
their cramped jail cells and legal
Brian, an inmate in his early
20s who is serving time for rob-
bery, says that the class is some-
thing to look forward to and
that it removes the stresses and
worries of doing time.
All we have is time in here,
Brian says, time to think about
getting out. And when we have
this class, you stop thinking about
it, at least for a little while.
The writing forum has a few
parameters: No excessive use of
profanities, and limited refer-
ences to drugs, alcohol and vio-
lence. Those limits are tested but
most students recognize when
they are pushing the envelope.
Michael Caron, programs di-
rector at the Douglas County
Jail, says that the poetry class is
very popular with inmates be-
cause Daldorph never lectures,
or corrects. Rather, he places the
students at his level and never
puts himself above them.
Brian conveys a real passion
for what he is doing. Everyone
knows that he is here because
poetry matters, Caron says.
The wealth of exceptional po-
etry and prose keeps accumu-
lating. He calls himself a facili-
tator, but at the bottom he is a
wonderful teacher.
Class in a jail
The class begins with stu-
dents reading poems that they
wrote from the last week for 20
The second segment of the
class consists of the students
writing for about 15 minutes.
Daldorph scribbles a number of
topics on the blackboard for the
inmates to use as fuel for their
writing engines, but students are
not required to use the subject
matter. Today, random words
such as Cadillac, amputate,
elephant and window are
on the blackboard.
Johnny Cashs I dont know
where Im bound plays quietly
in the room, as students calmly
compose new poems. Students
spend the third and fnal seg-
ment of the class reading more
of their poetry.
Students share their poems
with each other. A handful of
them dominate the class by shar-
ing four or fve poems at a time.
Others share only one poem and
the circle quietly moves along.
After the class has fnished read-
ing, students offer refections on
the class session.
James, the slightly overweight
elder statesman of the class in
his mid-50s, is eager to talk.
Gesturing with two forearms
covered with numerous tat-
toos, he says, The public is not
aware that many of us are go-
ing to be their neighbors. How
we come out of a place like this
could be for better or for worse.
This program lets you write and
refect on yourself and hopefully
you will not repeat those same
James says the program helps
students realize their mistakes
and lets them vent rather than
dwell on their current situation.
The class ends and students re-
turn to their security pods and con-
fnement. They will have time to
collect their thoughts and expres-
sions for next Thursdays class.
Daldorph says he understands
how unique the class is and he
marvels at the work of some of
the students. Hes taught in dif-
ferent countries with different
types of students, but he says
teaching at the jail is the real
prize of my collection.
I love the raw energy of the
class and the dedication of some
of the students, he says. The
class can be used as a positive in
their lives that often knows little
but negativity.
Marathons, soccer and books
Daldorph grew up in York-
shire, England, where his dad
was a road engineer and his
mother a housewife. He was the
youngest of three siblings and
the teaching bug infected his
two older sisters as well. Chris-
tine and Helen both teach mid-
dle school in England.
Daldorph says some of his
fondest memories are going to
work with his dad, hanging out
at the beach on holidays and
playing soccer.
As a youngster, Daldorph
loved to swim, and the breath-
taking views of the sea near his
home have always fascinated
Growing up as an avid Man-
chester United soccer fan, Dal-
dorph would often make the
one-hour trip to London to see
his favorite team. He grew up
playing soccer, day and night.
Soccer still plays an integral
part in his life. His youngest
daughter, Lucy, plays soccer at
Central Junior High in Lawrence.
Daldorph also plays. But for a
complete break from academia,
he loves to go running. The aver-
age four- or fve-mile run down
the street from his house is usu-
ally enough to keep Daldorph
content. But every now and then
he will go an extra mile or 26.
He has competed in the Boston
Marathon three times.
Its great because most peo-
ple will never play in the Super
Bowl or a big sporting event,
he says. I ran in one of the best
races in the world with some of
the best runners in the world.
Daldorph attended college in
England, but ended up teaching in
the United States. He says he loves
the energy of American culture.
He once contemplated careers
in law and journalism, but poetry
and teaching became his calling.
Daldorph has written three
books of poems, The Holo-
caust and Hiroshima Poems,
Outcasts and his latest offer-
ing, Senegal Blues, in 2003.
He loves writing books, but at
times, he craves a quicker re-
sponse for his work. It might
take two or three years to get a
response from a book project.
With journalism or perform-
ing a concert, you get that im-
mediate impact, he says. I
wish writing a book could have
that instant reaction.
His poetry has transported
Daldorph throughout the world,
including pit stops in Japan, Af-
rica and much of Europe. Byron
Caminero-Santangelo, director
of English graduate studies, who
traveled with Daldorph to Zam-
bia, called Daldorph an amazing
teacher, father and friend.
He is a dedicated and imagi-
native teacher, who is commit-
ted to his poetry, Santangelo
says. He can push students to
do their best work.
Daldorph is driven by his pas-
sion for poetry and the power of
the spoken word its ability to
convey emotional, funny or sad
messages through a simple line
of writing.
Lauren Grieb, Lenexa junior
and student in his Poetry Writ-
ing I class, calls Daldorph the
most thoughtful professor she
had ever encountered.
His passion is unmatched by
any teacher I have ever had. Ive
never seen someone work so hard
to bring out the potential in stu-
dents, she says. He goes above
and beyond for his students.
Daldorphs favorite part of
teaching is when he has a student
who isnt quite sure what they are
doing in the class. The student
sits through class after class with
looks of disinterest and apathy.
Then, similar to the old cartoon,
the light switch goes on.
Suddenly about halfway dur-
ing the course, he starts fguring
it out and poetry becomes inter-
esting to him, Daldorph says.
He starts writing poems from
the heart and can do some re-
ally remarkable work.
Back at home
After a long day of being a
teacher and volunteer, Daldorph
enters the third phase of his life.
He returns home to be with the
two most important people in
his life, his daughters Brenna
and Lucy. Both of them share
their fathers passion for read-
ing, writing, poetry and soccer.
Brenna and Lucy also share
their fathers love for England,
and the family looks forward to
making the trip across the pond
twice a year. Daldorphs eyes
glow and he exudes a subdued
excitement when he talks about
England, almost as if he recog-
nizes it as his secret James Bond
double-agent life.
I feel like I have two coun-
tries. I miss England, but my
family and I visit twice a year,
he says. Its important because
we have family members and
friends out there and I want my
daughters to know England.
But he also calls the United
States his home.
At his Lawrence home, Dal-
dorph lays his backpack on the
foor, fops onto his couch and
unwinds from the day by listen-
ing to music from Bob Dylan and
Ray LaMontagne. Another day
in the books, literally and fgu-
ratively, Daldorph is already pre-
paring another lesson plan for his
students at the jail. He realizes
the benefts of the class, but also
knows the class cannot solve all
of the inmates problems.
The same faces show up in
my class again and again. I think
that the writing class and other
learning opportunities at the jail
show the inmates better ways,
Daldorph says. But they have to
choose to make use of them.

capped the

trial with an
intense ex-
change that
will mark the
defendants last public words
before his incarceration in a
maximum security prison in
A day earlier, a jury rejected
the governments case to have
Moussaoui executed, decid-
ing instead to should spend
life in prison with no chance
of parole. Not all jurors were
convinced that Moussaoui,
who was in jail on immigra-
tion charges Sept. 11, had a
significant part in the attacks,
despite his boastful claims
that he did.
Brinkema firmly refused to
be interrupted by the 37-year-
old defendant as she disputed
his declaration from a day
earlier: America, you lost ...
I won.
You will spend the rest of
your life in a supermax prison,
Brinkema said. Its absolutely
clear who won.
Brinkema said it was proper
he will be kept away from out-
siders, unable to speak publicly
Mr. Moussaoui, you came here
to be a martyr in a great big bang of
glory, she said, but to paraphrase
the poet T.S. Eliot, instead you will
die with a whimper.
At that point, Moussaoui
tried again to interrupt her, but
she raised her voice and spoke
over him.
You will never get a chance
to speak again and thats an ap-
propriate ending.
Brinkema sentenced Mouss-
aoui to six life terms without
the chance of parole, with two
terms to be served consecu-
She informed him of his
right to appeal the sentence

do have a right.

band Bob in the attack on the

ily members of victims allowed

Commercials aim
to ease bird flu fear

to prevent a scare over deadly
bird u, the government is dis-
tributing television and radio
commercials assuring people
that chicken is safe to eat.
Mmm, that chicken looks
great. But what about bird u?
a man asks in one of the ads.
His wife says she read that
bird u is unlikely to reach peo-
ples dinner plates. And even
if it did, we have the power to
ensure our chicken is safe, she
An announcer lists four steps
for food safety: Clean hands and
cooking surfaces. Separate raw
and cooked foods. Cook poultry
to at least 165 degrees. Chill left-
overs promptly.
The Agriculture Department
on Thursday began sending out
a series of commercials, inter-
view excerpts, video footage and
photos to television and radio
stations with the goal of easing
peoples minds and clearing up
misconceptions about bird u.
Initially, those messages may
run up against heavy promotion
by ABC of its made-for-televi-
sion movie, Fatal Contact: Bird
Flu in America. The promos
feature how ill-prepared the
country is to deal with the prob-
Authorities dont know how
people will react once the dead-
ly virus arrives in the United
When bird u was discovered
in France and Italy, consumer
demand for chicken plummeted
there. It stayed steady when the
virus appeared in Britain.
Americans generally are
considered to be condent in
their food supply, and eat more
chicken than any country in
the world. The average person
ate 85.8 pounds of chicken last
year, a total that should rise to
87.7 pounds in 2006, according
to USDA projections.
While bird u has spread
from Asia throughout Europe
and Africa, it hasnt yet reached
the United States.
But its important for you to
know that its safe to eat poul-
try, even if bird u is detected
here sometime in the future,
Richard Raymond, the depart-
ments undersecretary for food
safety, says in one of the com-
You do have the power to
make sure your food is safe,
Raymond adds.
The government is testing
wild birds as they arrive this
month in Alaska and then y
south along migratory pathways.
Chicken and turkey companies
have been testing nearly every
ock for the virus.
Agriculture Secretary Mike
Johanns, in another spot, said
nding the virus in the U.S.
would not signal the start of a
human u pandemic.
The virus is not efciently
spreading from person to per-
son, Johanns said.
While it does not spread eas-
ily among humans, the virus
has killed at least 113 people
who had close contact with sick
birds. The fear is that it might
adapt to spread rapidly from
person to person, causing a
global epidemic.
Ads that focus on that as-
pect of bird u are still in the
works, said Bill Hall, a Health
and Human Services Depart-
ment spokesman. Like the
Agriculture Department spots,
the message would be that the
arrival of bird u does not sig-
nal a public health emergency,
Hall said.
Messages probably would
also include information about
proper hygiene, such as the need
to cover your mouth and nose
with a tissue when you cough or
sneeze, Hall said.

tations and rose-colored glasses.
Tonight: Say yes.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) HHH

Detach from tension and demands.
Tonight: Take off ASAP.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) HHHH

concern about your personal funds.
Tonight: Be a duo.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) HHHHH
Confusion could surround emotional issues

what is going on with others right now. Give
them space to reveal themselves.
Tonight: Say yes.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) HHH

ting sideways glances for wearing

look whenever I tell people Im a
vegan. Some people have an ex-
pression of disbelief upon hearing
that a fellow homo sapien could
be alive and standing without ani-
mal products in their diet. Some
look in awe that I can sustain such
a complex lifestyle. Others glare
back in mocking disgust because
they themselves need meat. Most
non-vegans seem to have a great
many misconceptions about
I will dispel some of these
MYTH 1: You must have a
hard time getting protein.
In reality, protein is in almost
everything and requires no plan-
ning to acquire. Ever look at the
protein in whole grain bread?
Pasta? Glance at a helping of
peas, beans, rice, lentils, cereal,
peanut butter, nuts, granola bars
or any other foods you already
have in your cabinets. Protein is
in just about everything. A vegan
does need to remember to take a
multi-vitamin containing B12 and
iron, but besides that, the lifestyle
is pretty low maintenance.
MYTH 2: Your diet must be
unbearably restrictive.
In actuality, a strictly vegan diet
isnt a diet, but a lifestyle. There
are no food restrictions, only
new and delicious alternatives.
Thanks to the popularity of the
vegetarian and vegan lifestyle,
there are lots of affordable and
scrumptious substitutes for any of
your favorite foods. Plus, there are
a lot of everyday foods that you
wouldnt expect to be vegan. Plus,
Ive opened myself up to a lot
of wonderful dishes I might not
have discovered eating the same
old chicken and potatoes that I
fared upon as a kid.
MYTH 3: I would die without
There are so many good meat
substitutes that are a lot cheaper,
easier to prepare, and more
delicious than meat. Tofu, vegan
grillers and falafel are just a few
examples of easy and fast vegan
foods that will make you com-
pletely forget about taking the
time to cook and spend money on
MYTH 4: Vegans are the most
unhealthy people on the planet.
Researching the answer to this
question was tricky. A great many
of the Web sites with information
about veganism are pro-vegan.
Instead of relying on biased infor-
mation, I looked at different and
recent research by the American
Cancer Institute and other govern-
ment sanctioned research in both
the United States and the United
Kingdom. All the research indi-
cated that vegans and vegetarians
are, as a group, signicantly more
healthy than their omnivore coun-
terparts. Vegans have a greatly
reduced risk for heart disease and
various cancers.
Still, there is a controversy
about pregnant women and chil-
dren adopting the vegan lifestyle,
so more research is needed.
From personal experience, I can
vouch for the health benets and
energy I have gained from switch-
ing to veganism. Ive lost weight in
a healthy way, without reverting
to starving or strange, cardboard
avored diet bars. I have more
energy. An acne problem that I
had for more than three years and
visited multiple dermatologists
about is gone.
I also feel better not eating ani-
mal products and not supporting
the meat packing industry. Still,
diet and exercise is vital to any
healthy lifestyle, so mine isnt ideal
unless dancing in the rain qualies
as exercise.
Being vegan does make you
check all food labels for animal
products. Ive become aware of
all the weird preservatives and
unhealthy ingredients found in a
lot of processed food.
MYTH 5: Being vegan only
encompasses diet.
Veganism does spread to other
animal products, such as fur, feath-
er, and leather. Refraining from
using toiletries and other products
that are tested on animals or con-
tain animal products is another
part of the vegan lifestyle.
Overall, I dont expect to
change anyones dietary view
point. I merely hope to show that
a vegan diet isnt as far-fetched
or as challenging as people may
believe. As a long time vegetarian,
I always viewed dietary veganism
as impossible despite my convic-
tions to refrain from using all
animal products. But, after nally
buckling down with the lifestyle
and experiencing the benets, I
understand why others can stick
with veganism. The lifestyle isnt as
complicated or as challenging as
you think.

If multitasking were a disease, I
would be diagnosed in no time.
All my friends will say the same
thing: If Im not doing several things
at a time or going four different
directions, something is not right.
I multitask like everyone
else. I watch TV while doing my
homework. I do the crossword
puzzle during class. Right now, Im
listening to a speaker, taking notes
and writing this column.
I have been known to send
and receive text messages while
attempting to maneuver through
downtown Kansas City, Mo.,
change the songs on my iPod
while cruising through St. Louis
on Interstate 70 and answer my
cell phone whenever it rings, no
matter where Im driving. Doing
one thing at a time is just boring.
I know Im not alone.
We are all young, technologi-
cally advanced college students
who have a desire to be connected
to friends and family at all times.
By August, the city of Lawrence
may have taken this connection
away from us. I say thats not fair.
The Lawrence Trafc Safety
Commission this week tabled two
ordinances that dealt with using
cell phones while driving.
This means we can continue
to use our phones while we drive
without penalties at least until
July, when they plan to vote on the
issue again. Then, they will decide
if Lawrence should implement a
complete citywide ban on mobile
devices while driving.
I see one main problem if this
ban passes: No matter what hap-
pens, people will still talk on their
phones in the car, and this will
make enforcement a difcult task.
Just like with speeding, some
people get caught. Some dont.
Catching cell phone users will
be incredibly hit or miss. Some
people may chat all the time and
never get caught while others may
make one emergency phone call
and get smacked with a ne.
It is apparent the city knows
this is one problem the ban will
cause. In an article in the Law-
rence Journal-World, both a city
attorney and a police ofcer dis-
cussed enforceability as a problem.
In general, I think this ban has
good intentions, keeping both
drivers and pedestrians safe, but at
the same time it seems pretty crazy
and probably wont work.
The Governors Highway Safety
Association, a non-prot orga-
nization that deals with highway
safety, produced a report about cell
phone bans. The report said that
no states currently ban cell phone
usage in automobiles completely,
but that some areas do have bans.
It also said that more research
needs to be done to help lawmak-
ers decide on the best option.
Maybe Lawrence City Commis-
sioners should think about that
before they put into effect a ban
that will be not only inefcient,
but probably make more people
unhappy than it will make happy.

people in the Washington area
were gunned down as convict-

trial Thursday.

Katherine Winfree said during
opening statements in a Mont-

Muhammad and accomplice
Lee Boyd Malvo were linked to
10 slayings and three wound-
ings in Maryland, Virginia, and
the District of Columbia. They
also were tied to shootings in
Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana
and Washington.
Muhammad, 45, has been
sentenced to death for a Vir-
ginia sniper killing and Malvo,
21, faces life in prison. In the
Maryland trial, Muhammad is
charged with shooting six peo-
ple in Montgomery County, the
mostly affuent county in the
Washington suburbs where the

A jury of seven women and
fve men was picked earlier
Thursday from a pool of about
300. Most in the initial pool said
they already believed Muham-
mad was guilty or played a part
in the killings.
Many cited the pervasive fear
that enveloped the Washington
area as people were shot at ran-
dom at gas stations, parking lots
and even a school.
People recalled keeping their
children inside, putting off fll-
ing their gas tanks and avoiding
public places. They said it would

prospective jurors, saying he
didnt think they could be fair.
His attorneys said the entire

jury lived in the county at the

Bush said he was willing to ac-

talks loom over how to cut it
back to his request.
The White House made clear
within minutes of the vote that
Bush has not backing down.
He calls on Congress to
fund our troops and fund the
rebuilding efforts along the Gulf
Coast, and then hold the line
on spending elsewhere. That
means dont put unnecessary
spending into this emergency
legislation, said White House
press secretary Scott McClel-
lan. The president has made it
very clear. He would veto legis-
lation that goes above and be-
yond what he called for.
The measure passed with a
78-20 vote. It contains $65.7
billion for war operations and
$28.8 billion for hurricane re-
lief, including grants to states
to build and repair housing and
$3.9 billion for levees and food
control projects in Louisiana.
Bushs veto threat puts at
risk items not requested by the
president, such as $4 billion in
farm disaster aid, $1 billion in
state grants and $1.1 billion in
aid to the Gulf Coast seafood
Unfortunately, there are
some here in Washington try-

unnecessary spending, Bush
said Wednesday. This bill is

Majority Leader John Boehner,
Such vows imperil numerous
Senate add-ons, including $648
million for port security, $1.9
billion to secure U.S. borders
and waters and efforts to boost
the budget for New Orleans
food control projects.
David Vitter, R-La., ob-
tained another $200 million in
New Orleans-area flood con-

financed by cuts to the Fed-

During almost two weeks be-

Too bad mans best friend
doesnt pick teams for the
NCAA Regionals. During Satur-
days softball game against Iowa
State, dogs are welcomed to get
a frsthand look at Kansas last
opportunity to move up in the
Big 12 standings and improve its
NCAA Regional chances.
The game is part of a Bark
in the Park promotion, where
dogs get in for a donation to the
Lawrence Humane Society or a
various pet items like toys or cat
These games are extremely
important, Kansas coach Tracy
Bunge said. The Jayhawks (28-
24, 6-10 Big 12) are currently in
seventh place in the conference,
and they will face the eighth
place Cyclones (23-25, 5-11) for
a two-game series.
If Kansas defeats Iowa State
in both games it has a the pos-
sibility of moving up into sixth
place ahead of Missouri or tying
with them.
In the event of a tie with the
Tigers, the frst tiebreaker is the
head-to-head match-up, but the
teams split their two-game se-
ries this year. Both teams won
by four runs, so the second
tiebreaker would also not de-
termine the winner. The third
tiebreaker is scoring margin of
all Big 12 games. The Jayhawks
would win this tiebreaker and
thus sixth place in the Big 12,
because they have the advan-
tage in this category.
On the other end of the spec-
trum, Kansas could fall as far
as eighth place if it is unable
to take care of business against
Iowa State.
The Tigers have a 7-9 confer-
ence record and play on the road
against the Nebraska Cornhusk-
ers this weekend.
A sixth-place fnish is crucial
for Kansas. The top-six teams in
the Big 12 receive a bye in the
Big 12 Tournament, which starts
The NCAA will also take a
closer look at selecting Kan-
sas if it fnishes in the top six
of the conference. While eight
teams were selected for NCAA
Regionals from the Big 12, the
conference had the second best
conference RPI in the nation
last year. This year, the Big 12 is
To put themselves into posi-
tion for an NCAA berth and
sixth place fnish, the Jayhawks
must be able to hit their way past
two of the Big 12s top pitch-
ers, the Cyclones Alyssa Ran-
som and Amie Ford. The two
could be a steep test for Kansas,
which has been in a prolonged
hitting slump. Even in their vic-
tory against Wichita State on
Wednesday, the Jayhawks man-
aged only one hit.
We just have to get it going,
Bunge said. We need to score.
Adding even more impor-
tance to this weekends series is
that Sunday will be Senior Day
for six Kansas players, including
Serena Settlemier.
Im excited, but its a lot of
pressure with my family com-
ing to watch, the pitcher/des-
ignated player said. Id like to
perform well.

victories, one tie and 98 losses,

niors on the softball team this

Fierros, an Avondale, Ariz.,
native, has started in left feld
in all but four Big 12 Confer-
ence games this season. Shes
batting .202 on the season,
which includes a 2-for-3 per-
formance against Oklahoma
last weekend. Fierros made the
move to left feld this year after
spending the last three years at
third base. Shes been called
on to pinch hit in numerous
situations this season.
Destiny Frankenstein
Frankenstein is fnishing her
fourth straight year at shortstop
for Kansas. The Broken Arrow,
Okla., native continues to move
up the career list in several cat-
egories. She currently ranks sec-
ond in all-time home runs, with
31 for her career. Frankenstein
also ranks fourth with 47 stolen
Last season, Frankenstein
had one of the best seasons in
program history. She hit .344
and set a new single-season re-
cord with 14 home runs. Fran-
kenstein was named to the First
Team All-Region by the National
Fastpitch Coaches Association
and was frst team All-Big 12.

The NBA gets exciting when
the playoffs roll around. Even
though half of the league plays
in the postseason and the frst
round series have been length-
ened to best-of-seven, the inten-
sity level is heightened.
I am an NBA fan, dont get
me wrong. I grew up going to
Washington Bullets games at
the old Capital Centre. I even
stuck with them when they stu-
pidly changed their name to the
Wizards. And when I moved out
west to the great state of Utah
in 2001, I accepted Stockton,
Malone and the Jazz into my
But sometimes fans like my-
self get sick, tired and fed up
with some things. For example,
if Lebron James makes one more
game-winning shot after a bla-
tant traveling violation, I will no
longer watch NBA. I will instead
put my love 100 percent toward
real basketball, much like what
is played in Allen Fieldhouse.
The call in game three of the
Wizards-Cavaliers game was
obvious. There was no arguing
that Lebron got away with two
travels in the fnal minute of
play. The second one a go-
ahead layup with six seconds
left was a knife in the back
of the Wizards. I have never
seen an easier call to make. But
somehow, referees Greg Willard,
Monty McCutchen, and Ron
Garretson missed it.
The poor Wizards lost their
opportunity to take a 2-1 series
lead when they lost that game,
97-96. Then during game fve
Wednesday night, Lebron did it
This time, Lebron made it
from the baseline corner all the
way to the rim in only three
dribbles. Halfway to the basket
he palmed the ball, put it back
on the foor, and went up to lay
in the winner with less than a
second remaining. His hand
was under the basketball for a
full second, carrying it just long
enough to give him the opportu-
nity to continue the drive. The
ball went in and the Cavs won
121-120. Poor Wizards.
Maybe Bernie Fryer, Joe
Forte, and Mark Wunderlich
forgot about the palming rule.
I know the Wizards played
terrible defense and I know
LeBron is a superstar, but is it so
much to ask to call the game by
the rulebook?
This is something thats never
going to change in NBA basket-
ball, and its why I will never fol-
low it as closely as KU basket-
The college game is real bas-
ketball. The rules are enforced.
You dont see players take six
steps without dribbling. You
dont see players in the lane four
seconds before a free-throw
leaves the shooters hand.
College basketball is basket-
ball how James Naismith meant
the game to be played. People
in this town can appreciate that
because they know KU basket-
ball above anything else. And
thats not a bad thing.
I have to wait until November
for college hoops to roll back
around. Until then all we have
is NBA playoffs, which is one
shade below Slamball.
LeBron, I know youre great,
but if you get a last-second shot
in tonights game six at Wash-
ington, do a Wiz fan a favor and
put up a jumper.

Hawks to play for big finish in Big 12
t softball
By aliSSa Bauer
kansan staff writer
Three hundred and sixty seven days
ago, Kansas clinched the series victory
against the then No.2 team in the country,
Texas. Three hundred and seventeen days
ago, Texas won the College World Series.
The Jayhawks (33-18, 10-11) are hoping
to prove they can steal a series from Texas
again this season as they head to Austin for
a three-game set against the No. 7 Long-
horns (33-15, 16-4), starting tonight at 6:15.
Any team can beat any team on any
given day, Kansas sophomore third base-
man Erik Morrison said. Youve got to go
in there and give it your all, and the better
team is going to come out with the victory.
Although Kansas took two of three
games from the eventual National Cham-
pions in 2005, both teams underwent
some changes in the off-season. While
most of the Jayhawk juniors returned for
their senior season, a large portion of the
Longhorns veteran lineup did not.
Morrison said that has led to specu-
lation in the press that Kansas might be
slightly stronger than the team that de-
feated Texas last season, while the Long-
horns may be less talented. Morrison
said that the team needed to focus on
the games this weekend rather than what
was being said in the newspapers.
Coach Ritch Price also shook off the
notion that Kansas was the stronger
team, and instead showed great respect
for the powerhouse Texas baseball pro-
gram and its accomplishments.
Every team in America takes a step
back after they win a National Champion-
ship, Price said. Now, I still think theyre
going to make the College World Series.
Sitting at the No. 2 spot in the Big 12
Conference behind Nebraska, Texas will
face Kansas, which has dropped to the
No. 5 spot, tonight with a couple of strik-
ing similarities.

scrimmage in games played on
or after Nov. 1 were the most in
NFL history.
Even if Holmes decides to
come back and resume his ca-
reer, new head coach Herman
Edwards has assured Johnson
that he, not Holmes, will go into
camp as the starter.
That much does make him
happy. So does having Edwards
as his head coach instead of the
retired Dick Vermeil. He and
Vermeil clashed repeatedly dur-
ing his frst three years after be-
ing taken in the frst round in
2003. But now he says he has a
head coach whos in his corner
for the frst time since he was a
high school senior.
Holmes, as mysterious as
always, has sent word he will
not participate in the Chiefs
mandatory minicamp May 19-
21 because he still does not
have medical clearance. Team
president Carl Peterson has said
that he still expects Holmes to
return. Holmes was one of the
NFLs top running backs when
Johnson was drafted in 2003.
Nevertheless, Johnson insists
hes still bitter that he did not
step right in as the starter.

Running back not happy and never will be
By DaviD crary

NEW YORK The expected
World Cup boom for Germanys
sex industry has ignited a trans-
Atlantic tiff over prostitution,
with a U.S. congressman and
other anti-traffcking advocates
contending Thursday that thou-
sands of foreign women will be
forced into sex work during the
four-week tournament.
The German government,
while defending its policy of
legalized prostitution, emphati-
cally denies that it condones hu-
man traffcking and said it had
intensifed efforts to combat it.
It also denied claims by some
critics that it was subsidizing
construction of new brothels.
Rep. Christopher Smith, (R-New
Jersey) remains skeptical. He urged
Germany to recriminalize prostitu-
tion and suggested that it should be
reclassifed as an egregious viola-
tor of human traffcking unless
tougher steps are taken before the
World Cup starts on June 9.
Smith, chairman of the House
subcommittee on global human
rights, convened a hearing in
Washington titled Germanys
World Cup Brothels. Witnesses
included representatives from
Amnesty International, the In-
ternational Organization for
Migration, and the Angel Coali-
tion, an anti-traffcking womens
group in Russia.
Juliette Engel of the Angel
Coalition, in her written testi-
mony, said the German govern-
ment had chosen to act as an
offcial pimp for the 2006 World
Cup anticipating millions
of dollars in revenues from the
exploitation of womens bodies
and souls by tens of thousands
of male football fans notorious
for their drunkenness and vio-
Engel, who said Russian and
Eastern European women were
Germanys main traffcking vic-
tims, described the World Cup
as a human rights disaster in
the making.
Germanys sex-industry
entrepreneurs have made no
secret of their expectation of
a boom as hundreds of thou-
sands of visitors arrive for the
World Cup. At the four-story,
40-bedroom Artemis brothel
which opened in Berlin last
fall, manager Egbert Krumeich
predicted business normal-
ly 130 clients a day could
double or triple during the 32-
nation tournament.
Prostitution is legal in Ger-
many, with about 400,000 reg-
istered sex workers who pay
taxes and receive social ben-
efts. However, the government
said forced prostitution was not
tolerated and it denies Smiths
claim that it was helping build
The German Embassy in
Washington said German fed-
eral offcials were working
closely with regional authori-
ties and non government orga-
nizations to combat traffcking
and forced prostitution, espe-
cially in the 12 World Cup host

The Kansas tennis team wont
be making an appearance in the
NCAA tourna-
ment in Stanford,
Calif. Out of 33
teams, Kansas
was not chosen
to compete.
It was a dis-
s o p h o m o r e
Stephanie Smith
said. It was one
of our goals at the beginning of
the season, but we have a young
team and were just going to keep
looking to make improvements
and hopefully we can make it
next year.
This years team made im-
provements from previous sea-
sons, though. Kansas ended the
regular season with an overall
record of 14-11, and a confer-
ence record of 5-8. The team
had its best season since coach
Amy Hall-Holt arrived for the
2003-2004 season. This is also
the best record the team has
had since the 2002 season,
when the team had an overall
record of 16-6.
The 11 victories that the team
obtained this season was more
than the previous two seasons
We thought it was an improve-
ment, sophomore Lauren Hom-
mell said. I thought we could
have done better.
Kansas also placed two of
its members on the All Big 12
singles team Monday. Fresh-
man Ksenia Bukina, who had
a regular season record of 10-
13 and occupied the No. 1
spot on the team, was one of
two members to make the Big
12 team.
Sophomore Liza Avdeeva was
the other player to be named to
the team. Avdeeva held the No.
2 spot on the team all season
and had a regular season record
of 18-7, including a team-high
11-game winning streak.
Bukina and Avdeeva also
made it to the All Big 12 doubles
team. The two had an overall re-
cord of 12-6 and a Big 12 record
of 8-3.
Avdeeva and Bukina are the
frst two players on the team to
be placed on the All Big 12 team
since the 2003 season, and they
are the frst doubles team to be
placed on the All Big 12 team
since the 2001 season.
The team also placed three
players on the Academic All Big
12 team this season: Avdeeva,
Skoda and Smith. To be placed
on the academic team, a player
must have a GPA of at least

Drew Stubbs was a wanted
man coming out of high school.
Any major university would
have made room on its roster for
Stubbs, and the Houston Astros
drafted him in the third round of
the 2003 Major League Baseball
First-Year Player Draft.
Stubbs found himself face-to-
face with a decision most base-
ball players only dream of hav-
ing to make.
I wanted to go to school the
whole time and the only thing
that was going to keep me out of
it was a large amount of money,
Stubbs said.
Stubbs said the Astros didnt
offer him the money he wanted,
so the Atlanta, Texas, native
instead chose to don the burnt
orange of the Texas Longhorns.
Now a junior, Stubbs roams
center feld for Texas, robbing
opposing batters of hits, and
carrying the Longhorn offense,
wreaking havoc on opposing
Stubbs has started all of Tex-
as 48 games this season and
leads the team in six offensive
categories including home runs
and stolen bases, but his most
cherished accomplishment in
his baseball career came last
season when he and the Long-
horns won the College World
As a result, Texas has come
into every game this season with
a bulls-eye on its chest, some-
thing Stubbs said initially caught
the team by surprise.
Not only has Texas been a
target for each of its opponents,
but it also lost seven players
who were either eligible to re-
turn this season or were incom-
ing recruits to the draft. The
team suffered early.
By March 4, the Longhorns
were 9-8. Texas didnt have eight
losses in 2005 until April 27.
As might be expected from
a perennial power, Texas has
turned things around, going 24-7
since. Texas coach Augie Garri-
do said the turnaround has been
a team effort, but Stubbs, along
with the other upperclassmen,
has led the team by example.
No one person can get it
done, but hes played his part
by his performances and the
way hes battled and the ways
hes accepted overcoming his
adversities during a game and
during the season and the way
hes conducted himself on and
off the feld, Garrido said.
This weekend, Kansas will
travel to Austin to face No. 7
Texas. The Jayhawks main ob-
jective will be to win at least one
game in the series to solidify
their postseason chances.
Kansas split four games with
Texas last season, but Stubbs
dominated Kansas pitching. He
went 7-for-15 with four runs,
three RBI and a stolen base.
Kansas coach Ritch Price knows
his team will have to do a bet-
ter job of containing Stubbs to
have similar success against the
Longhorns in Austin.
Hes as physically talented
as anybody Ive ever coached
against, Price said. Obviously
were going to try to be careful
with him and try to get in posi-
tion where hopefully he wont
hurt us.
When this weekends series is
completed, it will be four weeks
until Texas begins its champion-
ship defense.
Stubbs may already have one
championship ring and this Tex-
as team may not be as dominant
as last seasons, but that hasnt
lowered Stubbs expectations.
Ive kind of been spoiled.
Ive been to Omaha both years
that Ive been here, so Im look-
ing for nothing less than going
back and hopefully winning the
championship again, Stubbs
said. Anything less than that
would be a disappointment for
If Stubbs and Texas are still
in the hunt for another champi-
onship during the NCAA Super
Regionals, Stubbs may fnd out
that he is, again, a wanted man
in the professional ranks.
Sandwiched in the middle of
the NCAA tournament sched-
ule is the 2006 MLB First-Year
Player Draft. With the numbers
Stubbs has put up in college,
theres no reason to think he
wont be drafted higher this year
than he was coming out of high
school. Stubbs is candid in his
plans for next season if he is a
high draft pick.
At this point in my career,
Im looking to sign a contract
and begin my pro career after
this year, Stubbs said. Its not
a 100-percent certainty, but its
something that Id like to do
and I think everybody around
here understands that.

Ashley Goodrich
Goodrich, a Kewanee, Ill., na-

paign with career games against
UMKC earlier in the season.
She went 4-for-4 from the plate,
knocked in seven RBI and hit
two home runs in the double-
header against the Kangaroos.
The right elder is also hitting a
career best .262 from the plate
this season. Goodrich recorded
career bests in doubles, RBI and
slugging percentage.
Jessica Moppin
The Olathe native is closing
out her fourth consecutive year
as a second base starter for the
Jayhawks. Moppin ranks sec-
ond on the team, batting .301
this season. She ranks third on
Kansas all-time home runs list
with 28 on the season. Last sea-
son, Moppin established career
highs in hits, doubles, RBI and
overall batting average. She was
also named to the All-Big 12
rst team.
Serena Settlemier
Simply put, Settlemier is hav-
ing one of the best offensive and
pitching seasons in Kansas soft-
ball history. The Kelso, Wash.,
native knocked in her 21st home
run of the season Wednesday
against Wichita State. Her 21
home runs are a new single-sea-
son record and also make her the
Kansas career home run leader
with 43. Six of those home runs
were grand slams. Settlemier
is also one RBI away from ty-
ing the career RBI mark. At the
plate, she leads the team, batting
.340 on the season, ranking her
in the Top 15 of the Big 12.
On the mound, Settlemier
ranks third in the Big 12 with a
1.27 ERA and strikes out an av-
erage of nearly seven opponents
per game. Shes also set a new
career high with 15 victories.
In her last 25.66 innings, Set-
tlemier has only given up two
earned runs.
Heather Stanley
Stanley, a Houston native, was
Kansas only returning starter in
the outeld. Shes started all but
three Big 12 games this season,
batting .210 this year. Stanley
established new career highs in
doubles and triples this season.
She had one of her best outings
of the season against UMKC,
going 2-for-5 from the plate,
with two triples and two RBI.

Both teams enter the series
with the same number of victories,
33. Texas graced all three of the
primary collegiate baseball polls:
Baseball America (7), Collegiate
Baseball (7) and the National
Collegiate Baseball Writers Asso-
ciation (8). Kansas, on the other
hand, dropped out of the latter
poll, the only one in which it was
ranked, after last weeks series loss
to Oklahoma at home.
The two also have the exact
same team batting average, at
.292. Kansas has tallied 51 more
hits, but has three more games
under its belt than Texas. Kan-
sas also has a 19 more home
runs as a team, but with 34 more
Senior inelder Jared Sch-
weitzer led last years attack
on Texas. A .316 hitter lifetime
against the Longhorns, Sch-
weitzer broke the Kansas hit-
streak record during the Texas
series last season. A year later,
Schweitzer is still hot with the
bat. He leads the team with a
.358 batting average.
Texas, as equally imposing
an opponent as Oklahoma, has
mastered the long ball and has
solid pitching, but is similar
again to Kansas in the eld. The
Longhorns are the only Big 12
team with more errors (65) than
Kansas (63).
But this weekends match-
up is more about what happens
on the mound than anything
else. Making his Big 12 debut
as a starter, freshman lefty Nick
Czyz will take the mound to-
morrow afternoon, replacing ju-
nior left-hander Sean Land for
the weekend. Price said he was
concerned with Lands lack of
competitiveness and the nega-
tive body language he put forth
when he got in trouble against
Oklahoma last Saturday.
So while Price tries to restore
Lands condence in a few mid-
week games, the coach puts his
faith in the freshman
Weve been on the road all
year preparing for this weekend,
Price said. I think our players
will rise to the occasion and if we
get good starting pitching, weve
got a really good chance.

Ron was getting a sponge bath,
the early morning sunlight glis-
tening off his wet, chestnut coat.
On the other side of the barn,
the man he is named after was
closing a deal to sell the colt,
one of the Kentucky Derby fa-
Business as usual for the four-
legged Lawyer Ron.
Business as usual for the
two-legged version, Ron Bam-
As executor for the estate of
Jim Hines, which owns Lawyer
Ron, Bamberger sold an interest
in the colt Thursday. The sale
comes two days before Lawyer
Ron attempts to win the one
race Hines longed to compete
Asked if he thought the horse
knew what was up, trainer Bob
Holthus said, He dont know
anything about it. Then added,
And Im not going to tell him,
As if the tale of Lawyer Ron
wasnt already fraught with nu-
merous story lines, his 71-year-
old trainer was fghting the fu
this week, a year after being
hospitalized with congestive
heart failure.
On Saturday, Holthus will
take his best shot at winning
with a pupil on a six-race win-
ning tear.
The Arkansas Derby winner
is the 4-1 co-second favorite in
a packed feld of 20 three-year-
This is probably the best
chance I have ever had or ever
will have, Holthus said, so it
would be a great thrill fulflling
what has been a long career.
Holthus ffth and most tal-
ented Derby horse came to him
courtesy of Hines, a wealthy
businessman who owned hun-
dreds of thoroughbreds when he
died Feb. 21 of an apparent ac-
cidental drowning in the indoor
swimming pool at his home. He
was 69.
Hines death came four days
before jockey John McKee guid-
ed Lawyer Ron to victory in the
Southwest Stakes at Oaklawn
Park, which was followed by
wins in the Rebel Stakes and the
Arkansas Derby.
Now there are more folks
with a piece of Lawyer Ron, a
son of Langfuhr who has earned
$1,220,008 from seven victories
in 14 starts. Hes 7-for-7 on dirt
tracks; 0-for-7 on turf and Poly-
Bamberger would not give
details, but said an interest
in Lawyer Ron had been sold
to Audrey Haisfeld, who owns
Stonewall Stallions near Ver-
sailles, Ky.
Part of the deal calls for Law-
yer Ron to run in the Derby in
the blue and white silks of Hines
The sale of a Derby-bound
horse is far from unprecedent-
ed, but its rare when one of the
favorites is involved so close to
the race date.
In 2002, War Emblem was
purchased for $900,000 less
than four weeks before the Der-
by, and then won the race at 20-
1 odds for trainer Bob Baffert.
Theyre all worth more at
this moment then ever, Baf-
fert said. Saturday at 6:10 p.m.,
most of these horses are going to
be a lot less.
Through it all, Holthus has
persevered. Hes had plenty of
In 1952, when Hill Gail was
winning the Derby, an 18-year-
old from Nebraska took out his
trainers license.
Holthus, the son of a train-
er, won his frst race that year
with a flly named Colleen, and
showed up at Oaklawn Park the
next winter. He hasnt left, win-
ning 11 training titles along the
way, and hes still going strong:
This will be his third straight
Derby starter.
Last year, Greater Good was
13th; the year before Pro Prado
fnished 13th, too.
The last two years I had 30-1
shots and people came by to be
nice, Holthus said.
This week, his barn is
crowded every morning with
visitors, from the media to the
hundreds of fans allowed to
wander the Churchill Downs
Even O.J. Simpson made the
rounds Thursday. His pick?
Lawyer Ron. I love lawyers,
I know all about lawyers, he
said, smiling.

Holmes, 32, has been recov-

Holmes has remained mum
about his chances to return next
season. He was put on injured
reserve in November and has
been undergoing a battery of
neurological tests and evalua-
tions since.
General manager Carl Peter-
son said before the NFL draft
that if Kansas City had to play
a game, Holmes would not be
cleared. But we dont have to
start today, he said, adding that
doctors will evaluate Holmes
again soon.
I havent really called (Priest)
in a while, since he hasnt been
cleared, Edwards said. I would

If Holmes does return, it will
be as a backup to emerging star
Larry Johnson.
After toiling behind Holmes
for two years, Johnson rushed
for more than 100 yards in each
of his nine starts last season,
racking up 1,750 yards and scor-
ing 20 touchdowns.
It was enough that one of
