When Wes Bauer goes grocery shopping,
he picks up some lunchmeat and bread, a
couple of slabs of steak and a bag of pret-
zels. Sometimes hell grab an apple. Maybe a
bunch of grapes.
But never vegetables.
I just eat what I enjoy, Bauer, Topeka
sophomore, said. I dont really care about the
whole pyramid stuff, to be honest.
The food guide pyramid has changed its
shape and modified a few serving sizes in
the last decade. However, the necessity of
vitamins and nutrients for a healthy diet has
remained the same.
And so has the college student diet, which
is often void of important nutrients because
TV dinners and pizza have taken their place.
Students are notorious for not eating a lot
of fruits and vegetables, said Ann Chapman,
coordinator of nutritional services with the
Wellness Resource Center.
Although Chapman said the best way to
get nutrition is through food, she said stu-
dents often lack either the funds or motiva-
tion to eat right.
She said students tend to miss out on four
key nutrients: Vitamins A and C, iron and
If you arent getting the nutrition you need
from your food, or, like Bauer, dont care for
leafy greens or squash, Chapman recom-
mends one-a-day multivitamins, which come
in formulas designed both for women and
for men. She said to look for the USP label
on vitamin bottles, which stands for United
States Pharmacopeia and ensures a higher
quality of vitamin. The Watkins Health Center
Pharmacy carries more than 50 varieties of
supplements, including the multivitamins for
both men and women and various doses of
vitamins A and C, iron and calcium.
Natalie Baer, St. Louis freshman, takes a
multivitamin twice a day. She takes an iron
supplement too, and a couple of other pills to
boost her nutrition.
Baer also starts each day with a bowl of
Kashi cereal with some blueberries or black-
berries and milk. She eats a veggie wrap for
lunch and usually brown rice or chicken for
Baer said she thought she ate better since
she moved to college than before she left.
I feel healthier with the way Im eating
now because Im in charge of what Im eating,
she said. Im paying for my own food. Its not
food I can eat whenever I want.

Bus crashes into Higuchi
Hall, damaging laboratory
A KU bus drivers bathroom
break ended with a boom at the
Kansas Biological Survey on
One of the Park and Ride buses
was parked next to Higuchi Hall on
an incline while its driver stepped
inside to use the restroom. It rolled
forward down the incline and
struck the lower level of the build-
ing at about 12:30 p.m, leaving a
busted water pipe, flooded equip-
ment and damaged walls. No one
was hurt.
Justin Petty, Olathe sophomore,
and Kara Gerstenberger, Olathe
sophomore, were the only passen-
gers on the bus when it rolled and
struck the building. Petty said they
waited for the bus driver to take a
short restroom break, and the bus
wouldnt go into gear after the bus
driver returned.
And when she went out to
release the air pressure from the
tire, the bus started booking it
downward, Petty said.
He said both of them were sitting
in the seats near the back door.
Gerstenberger said the bus driv-
er tried to hop back in the bus after
all the air pressure was released
and the brakes stopped working.
So she ran around in front
of the bus to try and hop back
in, Gerstenberger said. But she
couldnt hop back in. And so next

School to
add new
major for
2010 year
Since her freshman year, Lauren
Patti wanted to major in interna-
tional studies. Instead, the Roeland
Park senior will graduate with her
bachelors degree in political sci-
ence with a co-major in interna-
tional studies because there wasnt
an international studies major at
the University of Kansas. Yet.
Currently one can only earn a
co-major in international stud-
ies in addition to a central major.
In Fall 2010, the new Center for
Global and International Studies
will create its own major, global
and international studies.
This is something we should
have done 30 years ago, William
Tsutsui, associate dean for interna-
tional studies, said, Its the number
one requested major by freshmen.
Tsutsui said the department
would have rigorous entrance
requirements, otherwise it would
have more applicants than the pro-
gram had room for.
The new major will require stu-
dents to gain a regional expertise,
language skills and take basic social
sciences, which are already required
by the co-major. But the major will
also include one global thematic
study, such as global health care or
global environmental studies.
Despite the recession, Tsutsui
said College of Liberal Arts and
Sciences still thought it was neces-
sary to move on with the plans,
originally made in 2007, to create
the center.
The current economic situation
has made us realize how important
a global outlook is, Tsutsui said.
We can manage to do a lot with
a little. We have a very committed
The center currently has a budget
of about $100,000 to construct the
new major, appoint new adminis-
tration and spread the word about
Student diets lack nutrients
Chapman said iron defciency was a major
issue for women. She said women were
hit with a double whammywhen it came
to iron defciency because many women
didnt eat a lot of red meat the best
source for iron and because they lose
blood through menstruation each month.
Iron defciencies lead to depleted
amounts of oxygen in the blood stream
and muscle tissue, also known as anemia,
Chapman said. Symptoms of anemia
include fatigue, dizziness and pale skin.
On the other hand, Chapman said, men
tend to over-indulge their red-meat tooth.
Iron overload,according to the NIH, can
lead to hemochromatosis, which can
cause organ damage and heart failure.
Women require 18 mg of iron each day to
make the U.S. Food and Nutrition Boards
recommended daily dose, compared to
the 8 mg a day needed by men.
According to the NIH, about two cups
of oatmeal or a bowl of 100 percent iron
fortifed cereal will meet a womans daily
iron requirement. A man would need less
than one cup of soybeans to meet his
requirement. Beans, tofu and spinach are
also sources of iron.
Chapman said iron was best absorbed
with vitamin C. This means that a bowl of
cereal with non-fat milk, which contains
iron and calcium, and a glass of orange
juice, which has vitamin C, is one of the
best breakfasts a student could have, she
vitamin a
Vitamin A is most commonly associated with
eye health, but according to the Ofce of Dietary
Supplements with the National Institution of
Health, vitamin A also plays a role in your immune
system, bone growth and reproduction.
According to the NIH, it would take about an
eighth of a cup of carrot juice or about one cup of
spinach for a 19- to 24-year-old male to have a full
days recommended value of vitamin A. A female
would require a little less.
Aside from carrots, spinach and liver, students can
get vitamin A from apricots, mangos, cantaloupe
and even oatmeal items not always found on a
students daily menu.
Chapman said people generally didnt need to
take vitamin A each day because the human body
could store an excess of the vitamin in the liver,
releasing the nutrient when the body needed it.
That will work unless you fush your system with
too much alcohol, according to the NIH.
It is very important for people who consume
excessive amounts of alcohol to include good
sources of vitamin A in their diets,the Web site
NIH also said excess alcohol intake was a leading
cause of vitamin A defciency in the United States.
If those who drink excessive alcohol have lower
levels of vitamin A, they can boost vitamin A by
taking supplements. But that too can be prob-
lematic because alcohol can make the liver more
susceptible to toxic levels of vitamin A, which
can lead to liver abnormalities and reduced bone
vitamin c
While you most likely wont
get scurvy from a lack of vita-
min C in your diet, you could
develop a slew of health
concerns, ranging from gingi-
vitis and split ends to slowed
healing and metabolism
and decreased immunity,
according to the U.S. National
Library of Medicine.
The U.S. Food and Nutri-
tion Board of the National
Academy of Science recom-
mends that men ages 19 to
24 consume 90 mg of vitamin
C each day. Thats about one
cup a day of raw orange
juice, according to the U.S.
Department of Agriculture.
For women, its 75 mg a day,
or less than one cup of un-
sweetened orange juice.
However, Chapman said
studies have found that ciga-
rette smokers and women
who use oral contraceptives
often need more vitamin C.
Most fruits and cereals meet
both daily recommendations
for males and females.
In the past, experts have stressed
the need for calcium to prevent
osteoporosis in women. But
recent studies have found that
men arent getting enough
calcium, either.
According to a 2009 study from
the University of Minnesota,
only 53 percent of men ages 19
to 39 and 21 percent of women
in the United States consume
the recommended amount of
calcium. The study also found
that 39 percent of men and 43
percent of women consume less
than one daily serving of dairy
The recommended daily amount
of calcium for 19- to 24-year-old
men and women is 1,000 mg.
Thats more than three cups of
non-fat milk or two and a half
cups of plain, low-fat yogurt.
Chapman said some students
dont like milk or dont think to
spend money on it. In that case,
she said, students could try a cup
of yogurt, a smoothie or even a
skinny latte.
Its a less traditional way, but
lattes have almost as much cal-
cium as a glass of milk,she said.

Bachelor of Science in Mathematics
Why did you
decide to pursue
this major?
St. Louis senior
Originally I got into math
because I thought it was the
most philosophical of all the
sciences. I thought that I could
fnd the answers to deep philo-
sophical questions like Dalton,
Newton or Lietnat. I have
come to realize that math is
applicable in absolutely every
area of modern industry.
BY iSaiaH CarDona
Major: Bachelor of Science in
College: College of Liberal Arts
and Sciences
Required Credit Hours:
Students interested in pursu-
ing a bachelors in mathematics
should declare the major with
the department to be assigned
an adviser. Consulting with an
adviser as early as the first aca-
demic year is preferred. The
degree is granted upon the suc-
cessful completion of 124 hours,
approximately 42 of those hours
required in mathematics and a
minimum of 46 hours in general
Sample of Major Courses:
Calculus I, Applied Differential
Equations, Evolution of
Mathematical Thought, Time
Series Analysis, Elementary
Number Theory, Discrete
Probability, and Complex
Variables and Applications.
Resources: The department of
mathematics offers many resourc-
es for students majoring in math-
ematics, such as help rooms, the
undergraduate math club, math
awareness month and the College
of Liberal Arts and Sciences
Student Academic Services.
Career Possibilities: According
to the 2008-09 Occupational
Outlook Handbook, the work
of mathematicians falls into two
broad classes theoretical (pure)
mathematics and applied math-
ematics. Many theoretical math-
ematicians will find employment
as university faculty where they
will be able to divide their time
between teaching and researching.
The applied mathematicians will
find work that involves formulat-
ing and solving practical problems
in business, government, engi-
neering and the physical, life and
social sciences.
Additional Opportunities:
After students complete a bach-
elors in mathematics, they have
the opportunity to further their
education and obtain a masters or
doctorate in mathematics.

But then, she said, students came to
her office to give her the news.
One of the students told me
You probably dont want to be sit-
ting here, because we just had a bus
crash, Bennett said.
Gerstenberger said that she was
shaking after the accident, and that
both she and Petty got out by open-
ing the back door which had no air
pressure keeping it shut. She said
the driver asked both of them if
they were OK when they got out,
and another bus was called to pick
them up.
And I looked up and every-
one is looking out the window,
Gerstenberger said.
Adam Blackwood, research assis-
tant at the Bioassessment Center,
said the bus hit a water main and
sprayed water into the room, which
was a laboratory that studied water
quality. Blackwood said the bus did
not damage gas bottles that were
in the lab and that the lab typically
stayed vacant.
It flooded that room,
Blackwood said. If its not broken,
its soaked with water everywhere.
Danny Kaiser, assistant director
for Parking and Transit, said the
investigation was still underway
and estimates for collision repair
work were not done yet. He said
the bus cost $269,601 in 2006.

the changes. The money came
from the existing co-major pro-
gram and the masters program at
the Edwards campus, which will
also be moved to the center once
its completed in 2010.
Patti said she agreed that the
changes in the department would
be beneficial for todays students.
For myself and students major-
ing in anything from art to science,
an international focus is almost
essential right now, Patti said, If
you leave college without it youre
already a step behind other people
who do have that experience.
The University has one of the best
international studies in the country,
Stanley Mugeki, assistant director of
the new center, said. But, he said, if a
more global emphasis were given to
the department it would be a ben-
eficial addition to the University.
Mageki and Tsutsui said they
agreed the new center would bring a
new energy to campus on thematic
global issues, such as global health
care and the environment.
The issues that affect other coun-
tries cannot be escaped, Mugeki
said, Were counting on the stu-
dents to be at the forefront of these
issues and help us to know what to
teach them.
Since this semester began, Patti
has been working with direc-
tors of the Center for Global and
International studies to put together
a group of students to focus on the
Patti said the group should be
approved and ready to begin meet-
ing in the next two weeks.
The department will also be part-
nering with the Armys Command
and General Staff College at Fort
Leavenworth to hold programs,
such as a lecture on global Islam in
the spring in order to help spread
awareness of the changes.
Tsutsui said the center was also
working with departments such as
Applied Behavioral Sciences in a
community development program
to give students the tools to help
build communities internationally.
They want to know more about
global issues as much as the stu-
dents here do, Tsutsui said, It is a
fortunate partnership and will help
to empower students to make a
change globally.

Local mission plan changes;
leaves Kansas after 3 years
Associated Press
FORT RILEY A mission
that has trained more than 15,000
soldiers, sailors and airmen to
be advisers in Afghanistan and
Iraq is leaving Kansas after three
years, shifting focus as it moves to
Instead of training teams of 12 to
16 people, the mission to be based
at Fort Polk, La. will turn combat
brigades of 3,500 soldiers into a
brigade focused on advising. The
change is part of the next phase
in Iraq aimed at the withdrawal of
troops in 2011.
The shift reflects not only a
change in location for the train-
ing, but a change in the adviser
Instead of training small groups
and sending them to work as liai-
sons between U.S. forces and Iraqi
forces, the teams will be brigade-
sized and do much the same task.
The idea is that with larger groups,
the brigades can do a better job of
training the Iraqis as the U.S. pulls
back from combat operations.
Defense analyst John Nagl,
president of the Center for New
American Security in Washington,
said the new system was a move in
the right direction, giving brigades
additional skills without compro-
mising their combat abilities.
We are figuring this thing out.
This is a learning process, said
Nagl, a former Army colonel who
trained advisers at Fort Riley and
helped write the Armys counterin-
surgency manual.
He said the new brigades will
have the ability to deploy repeat-
edly without needing to rebuild
adviser units, saving time and
The first brigades are being
trained and deployed to Iraq,
including three brigades of the
3rd Infantry Division from Fort
Stewart, Ga., and one from 4th
Infantry at Fort Benning.
About 90 percent of what U.S.
forces are doing in Iraq is advising
army and police forces to develop
skills, said Col. Mark Bertolini,
commander of the Fort Polk unit
responsible for adviser training.
That part of the mission will also
grow in Afghanistan as that nation
increases the size of its security
Bertolini said brigades of advis-
ers with good language and culture
skills will enable the development
of those forces.
This will put the expertise with-
in the brigades, a team of teams,
Bertolini said Tuesday. Its such a
critical mission, the exit strategy for
Iraq and Afghanistan eventually.
Fort Polk is better suited for
training advisers, Nagl said, because
of its mission and available resourc-
es. He noted that Fort Riley was
never designed to keep the mission
Fort Riley did very important
work for three years in training
and educating the advisers to the
Afghan and Iraqi militaries, Nagl
said. It is a thankless mission. Not
nearly as fun, but it served the
nation well.
For Fort Riley, the move means
a shift in focus, but it also means
The 1st Brigade of the 1st
Infantry Division, which is ending
its role training advisers, will grow
from less than 1,000 soldiers to
closer to 3,800 soldiers as it returns
its focus on preparing for war as an
armored brigade.
Fort Riley traditionally has
trained large units for war. One
1st Infantry brigade returns from
Iraq this month, while a second is
beginning its yearlong tour.
The growth is the last phase of
the Armys plans to increase the
Fort Riley soldier population to

Military personnel move on a staged Iraqi village as part of transition training on post at Fort Riley on Friday. A mission that has trained more
than 15,000 soldiers, sailors and airmen to be advisers in Afghanistan and Iraq is leaving Kansas after three years, shifting focus as it moves to
Louisiana. The change is part of the next phase in Iraq aimed at the withdrawal of troops in 2011.

divided along party lines,
the House formally rebuked
Republican Rep. Joe Wilson
Tuesday for shouting You lie
at President Barack Obama dur-
ing last weeks nationally tele-
vised speech to Congress.
The rare resolution of dis-
approval was pushed through
by Democrats insisting that
Wilson, a South Carolina law-
maker, had violated basic rules
of decorum and civility in his
outburst. Republicans dismissed
the vote as a political witch
hunt and a waste of precious
time and taxpayers money.
Wilson had called the White
House to apologize shortly after
the incident, and he said at the
time that the president gra-
ciously accepted my apology
and the issue is over.
The final tally late Tuesday
was 240-179, generally but not
entirely along party lines. It
was 233 Democrats and seven
Republicans voting to chastise
Wilson, 167 Republicans and 12
Democrats opposing the mea-
sure and five Democrats merely
voting present.
The resolution is not about
the substance of an issue but
about the conduct we expect
of one another in the course of
doing our business, declared
House Majority Leader Steny
Hoyer, D-Md., who sponsored
the measure with Democratic
Whip James Clyburn, D-S.C.
Republicans tended to strong-
ly disagree.
Were here on some witch
hunt, some partisan stunt that
the American people are not

Reporter claims he was tortured in prison
Associated Press
BAGHDAD The Iraqi report-
er who threw his shoes at for-
mer President George W. Bush
in protest was freed from prison
on Tuesday and, unrepentant, he
harshly condemned the U.S. pres-
ence in his country and accused
authorities of torturing him.
Muntadhar al-Zeidis stunning
act of protest in December made
him a hero for many in and out-
side Iraq. It struck a chord with
millions in the Arab and Muslim
worlds who have been captivated
and angered by daily images of
destruction and grieving since the
U.S.-led invasion of Iraq in 2003.
But nine months later, there was
little public outpouring of support
for him, a sign of how things have
Since the incident, U.S. forces
have pulled back from Iraqs cities,
significantly lowering the profile
of the U.S. military ahead of a
planned full withdrawal from the
Also, Barack Obama seen by
many Muslims as more sympa-
thetic to their cause is now in
the White House in place of Bush,
whom many blamed for unleash-
ing Iraqs turmoil. Moreover, with
some improvements in secu-
rity, some Iraqis are undecided
on whether the invasion was an
unmitigated evil as many long
depicted it.
A spokesman who works for
Bush in his Dallas office declined
to comment Tuesday.
Talking to reporters after his
release, al-Zeidi said he only want-
ed to avenge his countrys humili-
Here I am, free, but my coun-
try remains captive, he said. I
confess that I am no hero, but I
was humiliated to see my country
violated, my Baghdad burn and
my people killed.
His protest came on Bushs final
visit to Iraq as president, on Dec.
14. At a press conference, al-Zeidi
shot up from his chair and hurled
his shoes toward Bush at the
podium, shouting this is your
farewell kiss, you dog! and this is
from the widows, the orphans and
those who were killed in Iraq.
Bush ducked twice to avoid being
hit and was unhurt. Al-Zeidi was
wrestled to the ground by journal-
ists and security men. The protest
was a deep embarrassment to Iraqi
Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki,
who was standing beside Bush.
On Tuesday, a pale looking
al-Zeidi, in a dark suit, tie and
a newly grown
beard, spoke emo-
tively of the suf-
fering of Iraqis
since 2003, citing
that as the motive
for what he did.
Simply put,
what incited me
toward confronta-
tion is the oppres-
sion that fell upon
my people and how the occu-
pation wanted to humiliate my
homeland by placing it under its
boots, he said in a prepared state-
ment he read at the offices of
Al-Baghdadiya TV station, where
he works and where he went
immediately after his release.
He said senior officials from
al-Malikis government and Iraqs
army tortured him with beatings,
whippings and electric shocks
immediately after his detention.
At least two of al-Zeidis teeth
appeared to be missing when he
spoke at the TV station, but it was
not immediately clear whether he
lost them due to beatings.
Al-Zeidi also said he feared
for his life and claimed that U.S.
agents wanted to kill
In Washington,
CIA spokesman
George Little dis-
missed that claim,
saying, Thats so
foolish as to war-
rant no further com-
State Department
spokesman Ian Kelly
acknowledged that al-Zeidi had
made serious allegations of rights
These kinds of accusation we
take very seriously, and we trust
that the Iraqi government will take
them seriously, as well, he said.
News of al-Zeidis release
brought jubilant scenes at his fam-
ily home, a modest apartment in
a central Baghdad commercial
Female relatives danced and
ululated when al-Zeidi called his
brother Uday to say that he was
released. Men performed tradi-
tional dances and chanted rhymed
verses in his honor. Sweets were
handed to the two dozen reporters
present and glasses of sweetened
fruit drinks were given to motor-
ists outside. Sheep were slaugh-
tered in his honor and children
wore their best clothes, with little
girls in satin and lace dresses and
boys in dark suits.
Haidar al-Zeidi, a 6-year-old
nephew of the reporter, recited
a poem composed by his father
Dargham. Its refrain was glory be
to the shoes and referred to Bush
as a blood sucker.
Al-Zeidi went from the TV sta-
tion to an undisclosed location for
the night. His brother Uday said
the reporter will travel Thursday
to Greece for medical checkups
and because he had concerns
about his safety in Iraq. The owner
of Al-Baghdadiya, businessman
Aoun al-Khashloug, is based in
The Cairo-based lawyer for the
channel, Anass al-Bayaty, said a
private plane commissioned by
the owner was picking al-Zeidi
from Baghdad Tuesday night and
flying him to Syria before moving
on to Europe.

news 5A WEDNESDAY, SEptEmbEr 16, 2009
Lauren Fitzpatrick, Overland
Park senior, didnt expect to en-
counter an overfow of females
when she enrolled as an engineer-
ing student her freshman year.
What she found wasnt even close.
For almost the last decade, women
have accounted for approximately
20 percent of engineering un-
dergraduates, the lowest female
percentage of any school at the
University, according to the KU
Academic Information System.
But even that knowledge could
not prepare Fitzpatrick for when
she enrolled in aerospace engi-
neering and found only fve other
female students in her graduating
I was terrifed, Fitzpatrick
said. In aerospace engineering,
we have the fewest girls.
Fitzpatrick said a formal female
mentoring program didnt ex-
ist when she began her freshman
year, but she would have appreci-
ated it.
If I would have had that, there
would have been a little less stress
as a freshman, Fitzpatrick said. In
the School of Engineering, youre
surrounded by males. Youre al-
ways questioning, Am I supposed
to be here?
Now a senior, Fitzpatrick has
fnally found an opportunity for
this type of relationship, but in-
stead of receiving advice, she is
providing it.
She volunteers in the Society
for Women Engineers Mentoring
Program, new to engineering stu-
dents. She has become, for three
female freshmen, the resource she
didnt have.
Callie Statz, Ballwin, Mo., senior
and coordinator for the program,
said it would be part of the Soci-
ety of Women Engineers, which
she was president of last year. Te
program paired any female fresh-
man interested in the school with
female upperclassmen on a similar
degree path, Statz said. Boldridge
said the 16 participating mentors
give advice on extracurricular ac-
tivities and student life, as well as
ofer tutoring for classes.
Rachel Robinson, Overland
Park freshman and one of the
students Fitzpatrick is mentoring,
said they have already met mul-
tiple times this semester.
She helped me plan out the
next four years, including sum-
mer school, Robinson said. Im
so grateful for it. Without that, Im
pretty sure Id be kind of lost.
Heather Weed, Topeka senior
and current SWE president, said
the program was just one of a
variety of new eforts this fall in
the School of Engineering to make
current and prospective female
students feel more welcome. She
said that this year she wanted to
use SWE to promote engineering
to high school women and help
put those already involved in the
program in touch with employers.
I really want to make it go
somewhere, Weed said. It can do
so much to help women in engi-
neering. It can be a unifying group
to let us help each other.
Weed said she made the decision
to switch her major to engineering
afer receiving inspiration from fe-
male friends she met on a summer
study abroad program in Germany
afer her sophomore year.
Weed said she recognized that
studying engineering could be
more intimidating for women
without the support she had.
We cant reach out to enough
girls, Weed said. You have to be
strong and confdent in yourself
to be an engineer. Its kind of that
kind of feld. For one reason or an-
other, women dont see themselves
as being able to make it.
But the women who have opted
to study engineering have been
doing fne. Jill Hummels, public
relations director for the school,
said the average grade point av-
erage of female graduates in 2007
was virtually the same as the male
graduates. Last year, women made
up 20.3 percent of undergraduate
engineering students at the Uni-
versity, according to the KU Aca-
demic Information System. Te
School of Business had the second
lowest percentage of female un-
dergraduates 37.6 percent and
the School of Social Welfare had
the highest at 91.2 percent.
Boldridge predicted that the
percentage of female undergradu-
ate engineering students this year
would drop down, between 19 and
20 percent, but she said she hoped
reaching out to high school stu-
dents this year would help bring
the fgure back up.
Te University of Kansas isnt
the only university in the state try-
ing to strengthen its female engi-
neering community. Kansas State
University, where women account
for between 12 and 13 percent of
undergraduate engineering stu-
dents, has also implemented pro-
grams for attracting and support-
ing female engineering students,
said Kimberly Douglas-Mankin,
director of the Women in Engi-
neering & Science Program.
We have a pretty extensive set
of programs at K-State, Douglas-
Mankin said. What were doing
right now is were looking at spe-
cifc programs and whether those
programs have an impact.
Fitzpatrick said she hoped the
new KU mentor program would
have a positive impact on both
current and future female fresh-
men in the School of Engineer-
Even though the percentage of
women in engineering at the Uni-
versity has remained fairly consis-
tent, Fitzpatrick said she thought
the extra eforts the school was
making this year could help it
We want to bump our female
percentages from 20 to 30 to 40
percent, Fitzpatrick said. And I
want to be a part of that.

Critics argue salmon policy
Associated Press
PORTLAND, Ore. Calling it
an insurance policy for Pacifc
Northwest salmon, the Obama ad-
ministration on Tuesday ofered up
a tougher conservation plan for the
fsh that includes climate-change
monitoring and the last-resort
possibility of removing dams.
Te plan submitted to a federal
judge for approval was a revised
version of a Bush administration
plan that had been in the works for
years, but which was rejected.
Reaction to the new plan was
sharply divided, echoing a debate
that stretches back
decades over bal-
ancing Columbia
River Basin fsh
survival and hy-
droelectric dams: It
either goes too far
or not far enough.
Envi r onmen-
talists say it does
little to enhance
the Bush adminis-
tration plan the judge has already
called inadequate, while business
groups worry it could lead to dras-
tic measures such as dam removal
on the lower Snake River in south-
eastern Washington state.
We appreciate that President
Obama took the time to look at
this, but we see little more than a
veiled attempt to pass of the old
Bush plan as a new one, said Greg
Stahl, assistant policy director for
Idaho Rivers United.
Another environmentalist was
even more critical, calling the new
plan illegal and scientifcally un-
Nicole Cordan, legal and poli-
cy director of the Save Our Wild
Salmon coalition, said the Obama
administration acknowledged the
analysis in the Bush plan was un-
certain and potentially overly opti-
mistic but stuck with much of it.
Again, weve had eight years of
these same actions and same kind
of work, and what were seeing is a
whole lot of money spent and not a
whole lot of impact happening on
the ground, Cordan said.
Most of the $750 million spent
each year on salmon conserva-
tion comes from Bonneville Power
Administration ratepayers. Te
Portland-based BPA is the federal
power marketing agency that shares
salmon recovery management with
the National Oceanic and Atmo-
spheric Administration, the U.S.
Army Corps of Engineers and the
U.S. Bureau of Reclamation.
Te plan submitted by NOAA
to U.S. District Judge
James Redden on
Tuesday is called a
biological opinion
that sets the require-
ments for ensuring
salmon survival un-
der the Endangered
Species Act.
Te chief of
NOAA, former Or-
egon State University
professor Jane Lubchenco, said the
additional measures recommended
by the Obama administration take
into account the uncertainties men-
tioned by critics and tries to adjust
for them.
She noted the new plan would
immediately expand research and
monitoring, and set specifc bio-
logical triggers for strong con-
servation measures if numbers of
endangered or threatened fsh fail
to reach certain benchmarks.
Its defnitely not business as
usual, Lubchenco told Te Associ-
ated Press in an interview.
Lubchenco, widely considered a
top expert in marine ecology, de-
fended the scientifc models used
to draf the plan but said more re-
search would be required to make
sure it works and to adapt it to vari-
able conditions, including climate
She called for an end to litiga-
tion over the plan in order to move
forward with conservation mea-
sures that may not enjoy unani-
mous support but resulted from
a regional consensus, including
many American Indian tribes.
We believe the time has come
to get out of the courtroom, Lub-
chenco said.
Te biological opinion has been
a work in progress since 2000, and
has twice been rejected by Red-
den who, at one point, threatened
to take over management of Co-
lumbia River Basin hydroelectric
But some elements of the plan,
including a recommendation that
the Corps of Engineers study the
possible removal of the four lower
Snake River dams, raised serious
concerns with U.S. Rep. Doc Hast-
ings, the top Republican on the
House Natural Resources Com-
Te Obama administration
has put dam removal back on the
table and delivered just what dam
removal extremists have been de-
manding, said Hastings, whose
committee has jurisdiction over
fsh recovery and federal hydro-
power dams.
Steve Wright, Bonneville Power
Administration chief, added that
hydroelectricity produced by the
dams is not only relatively cheap,
it does not cause any carbon diox-
ide pollution, considered the main
cause of global warming.
Sen. Jef Merkley, an Oregon
Democrat, said the Obama ad-
ministration made improvements
over the previous proposal but he
worries about more litigation stall-
ing salmon recovery eforts.
His spokeswoman, Julie Ed-
wards, said Merkley agrees with
Republican Sens. Mike Crapo and
Jim Risch of Idaho that a regional
dialogue among all the stakehold-
ers will be necessary to forge a
lasting solution.
The Columbia River fows near Corbett, Ore. , May 24, 2005. The Obama administration says it will be more aggressive in protecting declin-
ing Pacifc Northwest salmon runs and will study breaching some dams as a last resort in a long-awaited management plan. The administration
submitted the plan to a federal judge Tuesday in Portland, Ore. Called abiological opinion,it will guide hydroelectric damoperations and fsh
conservation programs in the Columbia Basin for the next decade.
We believe the time
has come to get out
of the courtroom.

Searching for bad taste

Hopkins University student armed
with a samurai sword killed a sus-
pected burglar in a garage behind
his off-campus home early Tuesday,
hours after someone broke in and
stole electronics.
Some shocked neighbors said
they heard bloodcurdling screams
in an area just blocks from the uni-
versity. Police held the student, a
junior chemistry major who turns
21 on Sunday, for several hours,
but no charges were filed by early
afternoon, said police spokesman
Anthony Guglielmi.
Around 1:20 a.m., the student
heard noises behind the home
and noticed a door to the garage
was open, Guglielmi said. He
grabbed the sword and confronted
the intruder, who was crouching
beneath a counter.
The student asked the suspect
what he was doing and threatened
to call police.
When he said that, the suspect
lunged at him, kind of forced the
kid against the wall, and he struck
him with the sword, Guglielmi
The intruders left hand was near-
ly severed Guglielmi described it
as hanging on by a thread and
the man suffered a severe cut to
the upper body. The 49-year-old
suspect, whom police described as a
habitual offender, died at the scene.
On Monday, two laptops and a
Sony PlayStation were stolen from
the students home, which he shares
with three other students, but police
were not sure whether the slain
suspect was responsible, Guglielmi
There was a pool of blood Tuesday
morning in the brick courtyard
between the back porch of the home
and the garage. The courtyard was
strewn with debris, including what
looked like broken glass.
Guglielmi did not know why the
student kept a sword. He said he
may have had some martial arts
training, but was not an expert.

BAGHDAD Insurgents fired
four mortar shells at Baghdads
heavily fortified Green Zone on
Tuesday, killing two civilians, on
the same day Vice President Joe
Biden arrived in the Iraqi capi-
tal on an unannounced visit to
help resolve political differences
among Iraqis.
The shells were fired after Biden
arrived in Iraq on his third trip to
the country this year. It was not
clear where he was at the time.
The faint pops of the mortars
being fired were audible on the
opposite side of the Tigris River
from the Green Zone, and at
least one of the shells was heard
exploding on impact.
One round that fell short hit
residential apartments on the
Tigris River, killing two people and
wounding five others, including a
12-year-old, a police official said.
He spoke on condition of anonym-
ity because he was not authorized
to comment to the press.
As the White Houses point
man on Iraq, Biden said he has
been in regular contact with the
countrys leaders.
The whole purpose is to see
how we can be helpful, if we can,
in helping them resolve the out-
standing political issues they have
to resolve internally, so that when
the (security agreement) is fully
implemented we leave a stable
Iraq, he told reporters after meet-
ing with Gen. Ray Odierno, the top
U.S. commander in Iraq, and U.S.
Ambassador Christopher Hill.
The U.S.-Iraqi security agree-
ment calls for the withdrawal of
American combat forces by the
end of August, 2010, and of all
U.S. troops by the end of 2011.
The three-day trip gives Biden a
chance to meet with the full range
of Iraqi leaders, both in Baghdads
central government and in the
self-governing Kurdish region,
whose boundaries with the rest of
the country have become a vola-
tile fault line.
Im here to listen, and occa-
sionally they have asked me to be
an interlocutor on their behalf,
and its been of some value so far,
he said.
Biden said that Odierno was
optimistic that the readiness of
Iraqi forces would allow the U.S.
military to withdraw all combat
forces next year according to plan,
and then proceed with pulling
out the remaining 50,000 troops
by the end of the following year.
There are now about 130,000 U.S.
troops in Iraq.
The Iraqi government plans to
hold a national referendum on the
agreement in conjunction with
elections in January. If approved,
the referendum would require all
U.S. forces to leave within one
year well ahead of the existing
plan to withdraw completely by
the end of 2011.
Biden said of the referendum
that Iraqi leaders have indicated
it is likely to happen. But he
added, Im not sure its settled
Biden made his last visit to
the country on July 4 to spend
U.S. Independence Day with the
troops. During that trip he also
met with his son, Beau, who is an
Army captain serving in Iraq.
In his meetings with Iraqi offi-
cials, Biden was expected to dis-
cuss plans for the January elec-
tions and the ongoing violence
in Iraqs north. As the number
of bombings and other attacks
declines elsewhere in Iraq, the
north remains a battleground
between Sunni Arab extremists
and Iraqi and U.S. forces. Kurdish-
Arab tension there also frequently
flares into violence.

whether the victimwas responsible for the earlier theft.

Police on Tuesday raided the apart-
ment of a man they call a person
of interest in the slaying of a Yale
graduate student.
Two search warrants for DNA
and other physical evidence
were served at the apartment of
24-year-old Raymond Clark III
in Middletown. No charges were
filed against Clark, who police said
would be released after they obtain
the evidence they need from him
and his apartment.
Clark, dressed in a tight-fitting
white shirt, was handcuffed and
escorted out of the apartment build-
ing and into a silver car. Neighbors
leaned over the apartment build-
ings iron railings and cheered as
police led him away.
New Haven Police Chief James
Lewis did not describe Clark as a
suspect. He said police were hoping
to compare DNA taken from him
to more than 150 pieces of evidence
collected from the crime scene.
Were going to be making sure
theres not other suspects out there,
Lewis said.
Investigators began staking out
Clarks home on Monday, a day after
they discovered 24-year-old Anni
Les body hidden in the basement of
a research building at Yales medical
school. She had vanished Sept. 8.
Clark shares the apartment with
his girlfriend, Jennifer Hromadka,
whom he is engaged to marry in
December 2011, according to the
couples incomplete wedding Web
site. Middletown is about 20 miles
north of New Haven.
Neither the couple nor Clarks
parents returned repeated tele-
phone calls Tuesday.
Clark moved to Middletown
from New Haven
six months ago,
and shares the
apartment with
his girlfriend and
three cats, accord-
ing to former
neighbor Taylor
Goodwin, 16.
I never really
talked to him much, he was just
some guy, Goodwin said.
It was unknown how long Clark
worked at Yale or his duties. Clarks
supervisors at Yale would not com-
ment Tuesday.
Le worked for a Yale laboratory
that conducted experiments on
mice, and investigators found her
body stuffed in the basement wall
of a facility that housed research
Authorities had been tightlipped
since Le was reported missing
Sept. 8, just a few days before her
wedding day. Police say they have
ruled out her fiancee, a Columbia
University graduate student, as a
suspect but have provided little
additional information.
Officials had promised Tuesday
to release an autopsy report that
would shed light on exactly how Le
died. But then prosecutors blocked
release of the results out of concern
that it could hinder the investiga-
Investigators usually have rea-
sons for keeping information secret
during a criminal probe, said David
Zlotnick, a former federal prosecu-
tor who now teaches law at Roger
Williams University in Bristol, R.I.
Secrecy helps police confront
possible suspects
with little-known evi-
dence about a crime
and makes it harder
them to fabricate a
cover story.
Having that infor-
mation secret or pri-
vate helps the inves-
tigators know, first of
all, what buttons to push on the
person, and it makes sure they
havent tainted the investigation,
Zlotnick said.
Les body was found Sunday, the
day she would have been married
on New Yorks Long Island. Her
remains had been crammed into
a wall recess where utilities and
cables run between floors.
The Le family issued a state-
ment Tuesday through a family
friend, the Rev. Dennis Smith, that
thanked friends and the Yale com-
munity for their support during
their grieving. The family also
asked for privacy.
The entire Yale community as
well as our extended families and
friends have been very supportive,
helpful and caring, said Smith,
speaking for the family. Our loss
would have been immeasurably
more difficult to cope with without
their support.

ST. LOUIS Fay looks men-
acing as her teeth jut out from a
mouth without lips, which have
been ripped from her face along
with part of her nose during vicious
But the 5-year-old black
American pit bull terrier, one of
the pitiful casualties of an illegal
practice, wags her tail relentlessly
and offers her scarred body to be
petted by strangers. She cuddles
easily in the arms of a caretaker.
After the first guilty pleas from
the largest coordinated multistate
raids on dogfighting in U.S. history,
the Humane Society of Missouri
offered a first look this week at
some of the hundreds of dogs
seized in the July 8 raids and pup-
pies born since.
The Missouri group alerted the
government to the dogfighting 18
months ago and coordinated res-
cues in two of the states.
Humane Society video of the
bust showed dogs missing ears and
whole legs, or bearing deep scars
and puncture wounds. It chron-
icled canines, some appearing
malnourished, tethered on 2-inch
wide collars to 25-pound log chains
attached to spikes on dirt pads or
overgrown weed patches. In some
cases, the dogs water supply was
green with algae.
We saw severely mutilated dogs
missing eyes, ears and limbs, said
Tim Rickey, director of the Humane
Society of Missouris anti-cruelty
task force. Their condition is bad
enough, but to know that three-
legged dogs were forced to fight for
their survival is too much.
Four eastern Missouri men
arrested as part of a federal crack-
down pleaded guilty Monday
to conspiracy and other crimes,
admitting their roles in breeding,
training, trafficking, fighting and
destroying pit bulls in a lucrative
dogfighting network.
The four, along with a fifth co-
defendant who pleaded guilty Sept.
4, were the first convictions from
the raids. Authorities arrested 26
people and seized more than 500
dogs in Missouri, Iowa, Illinois,
Mississippi, Oklahoma, Nebraska
and Texas.
Agents also seized dog con-
ditioning equipment and rape
stands used to strap females into
place to be bred. Rickey said breed-
ing is a critical part of the industry
because fighting dogs dont live
long, and new pups are needed to
replenish the supply.
Its a bleak future for any dog
that fights, win or lose, he said.
The quitter gets killed, and the
survivor, after two hours of fighting
for his life, is taken home without
medical attention and left to die in
one or two days, Rickey said.
The Humane Society has more
than 400 dogs taken from suspects
in eastern and western Missouri
and southern Illinois, and another
100 puppies born since the raids.
About 100 more seized in the
other states are being held by other
Federal judges will determine
who has rightful claims to the con-
fiscated dogs.
Associated Press
the FBI and the Bureau of Alcohol,
Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives
are feuding over bomb investiga-
tions racing each other to crime
scenes, failing to share informa-
tion and refusing to train together,
according to a draft report obtained
by The Associated Press.
The report says Justice
Department bosses have repeatedly
failed to fix the problem.
The Justice Departments
Inspector General, Glenn Fine, has
drafted a preliminary report on the
two agencies repeated squabbles to
claim jurisdiction in investigations
of explosives incidents across the
country from Times Square in
New York City to Arizona and the
West Coast.
The most recent documented
spat came last December when
the FBI protested a local prosecu-
tors request to use the Bureau of
Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and
Explosives to investigate a blast that
killed a local bomb technician in
Woodburn, Ore.
FBI and ATF supervisors tend
to deploy their employees to the
larger, more sensational explosives
incidents, sometimes racing each
other to be the first federal agency
on the scene and disputing upon
arrival which agency should lead the
investigation, according to a draft
version of the report.
Such conflicts can delay inves-
tigations, undermine federal and
local relationships, and may project
to local agency responders a dis-
jointed federal response to explo-
sives incidents in their area, the
draft report found.
Officials in both agencies claim
such problems have been resolved,
yet the report stated that disputes
between the FBI and ATF continue
to occur.
Changes and corrections are still
being made to the draft document.
FBI and ATF officials did not
immediately comment. A Justice
spokeswoman declined to comment
on the draft.
The report, which analyzes the
agencies interactions from 2003 to
early 2009, is expected to be released
later this month, though an exact
date was uncertain.
So-called battles of the badges
between different law enforcement
agencies are nothing new, but the ill
will between FBI and ATF dates back
decades and has survived the 2002
transfer of ATF from the Treasury
Department to Justice.
Some had thought putting the
agencies in the same department
might end the feud, but the Justice
Department has spent years trying to
get the two sides to cooperate.
The inspector general said the
problem is exacerbated by the fact
that Justice Department instruc-
tions dont clearly spell out who is in
charge of federal responses to crime
scenes involving explosives.
The confusion lies in the mandate
of each agency: The FBI is charged
with investigating terrorism in any
form and the ATF is charged with
investigating incidents in which
explosives were used as a weapon.
Often, it is hard to tell when
police first arrive on the scene
whether the motive behind a bomb
or explosive device is terrorism or
something else.
Traditionally, it has been the job
of the No. 2 official at the Justice
Department to resolve such issues,
but the inspector general found that
for years, deputy attorneys general
have failed to do so, despite writ-
ten instructions issued in 2004 and
We believe it is critical that DOJ
issue a new directive to clearly define
lead investigative authority between
the FBI and ATF and require coor-
dination of investigative actions,
the draft report recommends.
While the two agencies are sup-
posed to be entering information
into a joint database, the review
found the FBI hasnt entered any-
thing into the database since 2004.

Five arrested after raids
in dogfghting crackdown
Fay, a 5-year-old pit bull, appears to snarl because her lips were ripped fromher face in a
dogfght. She was rescued during a multistate raid July 8.
Firefighters have found six bodies
inside a burning car in Tijuana,
and 10 people were killed in two
separate shootings in another
northern Mexican border town
besieged by drug violence.
Near Mexicos southern border,
meanwhile, the bullet-ridden bod-
ies of eight men suspected to be
drug traffickers were found in a
Guatemalan frontier town.
In Tijuana, across the border
from San Diego, four bodies were
found in a burning compact cars
seats and two in the trunk, accord-
ing to a police report Tuesday.
The victims identities and
the motive for killings were not
released, but the Mexican city is
on a major route for drugs head-
ing north and has recently seen
a wave of violence between war-
ring gangs. The bodies were found
Monday night.
In Ciudad Juarez, gunmen
opened fire inside a hardware
store, killing the woman who
owned the store and four other
people, including a 19-year-old
man, the regional attorney gen-
erals office said. Minutes later, an
armed gang killed five men riding
in a pickup truck.
Ciudad Juarez, across from El
Paso, Texas, is Mexicos deadliest
city with more than 1,300 killings
so far this year. The city is in the
midst of an intense turf battle
between the Juarez and Sinaloa
Officials held a ceremony for
1,200 Mexican army soldiers
who were being withdrawn from
Ciudad Juarez. The troops were
part of a contingent sent there
earlier this year to fight crime
while the city trained more police
The military has trained 1,027
police officers for the city, which
now has a police force of 3,025
officers, about a third larger than
its previous size.
President Felipe Calderon has
deployed more than 45,000 troops
to drug hotspots since taking
office in 2006. Drug violence has
since surged, claiming more than
13,500 lives across Mexico.
The bodies in Guatemala were
found in the San Marcos region,
which has become a major transit
point for cocaine shipments that
often are left at sea to be picked up
by local traffickers and smuggled
into Mexico.
Police spokesman Juan Choguix
said the eight men were suspected
of being drug smugglers.
Guatemala has been increas-
ingly plagued by drug violence
mirroring Mexicos gang wars.
Guatemalan President Alvaro
Colom has blamed the drug trade
for many the 6,200 homicides that
occurred in the Central American
country last year.

Giving speakers the rock star treatment
Bill Lacy, director of the Robert
J. Dole Institute of Politics, wants
to give all of its political speakers
the rock star treatment.
We invite a speaker, and we say
you tell us when you can be here,
and we will make it work for us,
Lacy said.
On campus, the Dole Institute
provides opportunities for politi-
cians and members of the media
to speak to the community. The
Dole Institute announced its lead-
ership prize for 2009 on Sept. 9.
University of Miami (Fla.) presi-
dent Donna Shalala will receive
the award later this fall, which
honors leadership through honor-
able service.
But the Dole Institute doesnt
just lure speakers and give awards.
It actively recruits political experts
to be instructors. This fall Kay
Barnes, former Kansas City, Mo.,
mayor and 1960 KU graduate, will
be one of those instructors.
Barnes will lead a study group
for the Dole Institute of Politics.
The group will examine decisions
and challenges mayors make in
small and big cities alike.
I want to talk about my experi-
ences being mayor, some of the
functions of being a mayor and
give some description of each of
those, Barnes said.
Barnes said Dole Institute rep-
resentatives approached her two
or three years ago about leading
a study group, but she put those
plans on hold as she pursued a
congressional seat, which she lost
in 2008. She said both she and
the institute worked out a plan to
bring her on campus.
The Dole Institute holds fall and
spring study groups and occasion-
ally brings in political figures to
speak to the community. These
speakers have incuded Shalala,
news anchor Tom Brokaw and
former President Bill Clinton.
Lacy said it was important for
students to hear from politicians
directly because students needed
to get more involved in the politi-
cal process.
Young people need to take a
greater role in politics and their
government, Lacy said.
He said the Dole Institute was
moving from a standard lecture
with a prepared speech to an inter-
view-style format. He said former
Vice President Walter Mondale
mentioned that he appreciated this
new format after his visit in 2007.
He said, Because you told me
you would do an interview, and I
wouldnt have to write a speech,
or pay someone to write a speech,
it made it much more comfortable
for me to get on a plane and come
here, Lacy said.

Student Union Activities also
brings in political speakers. Its
springtime Student Lecture Series
aims to bring in a big-time speak-
er to campus. Stephanie Green,
McPherson junior and social
issues coordinator, said SUA was
an organization with a deep his-
tory and a name recognized by
talent agencies. She said her office
was working right now on bring-
ing in a speaker for the spring.
Weve had that experience in
the past, Green said. Were well
known. Speakers will want to
come. A lot of agencies recognize
Green said it was important for
students to know whats going on
around their world. She also said
last years speaker, broadcaster and
former political adviser George
Stephanapolous had a good recep-
tion on campus.
He was an amazing speaker,
Green said. We had an amazing
crowd turnout.
But SUA pays for its speakers
where the Dole Institute typically
does not.
Keith Yehle, director of federal
relations for the University and
former legislative director for U.S.
Sen. Pat Roberts (R-Kan.), said
he preferred the model where the
University didnt pay for talent.
The speakers you want to
come here should come on their
own, Yehle said. Our members
of Congress come here to talk to
students, they dont ask for a fee.
If we got into the habit of paying
speakers, students will spend all
their money and get a limited
amount of speaker.
The Dole Institute does, how-
ever, pay $25,000 to its recipient
of the Dole Leadership prize. Lacy
said recipients usually donated the
money to a charity of their choice.
He also said speakers might get
a stipend if they are scheduled to
appear with other speakers.
Yehle has an extensive list of
contacts in Washington, D.C.,
meaning he will sometimes make
suggestions about speakers to Lacy.
For instance, Yehle recommended
Octavio Hinojosa Mier, the execu-
tive director for the Congressional
Hispanic Leadership Institute and
1995 KU graduate, come speak.
Mier spoke to KU students last
Friday at a Pizza and Politics ses-
Lacy said the Dole Institute
could handle controversial views
but wanted to make sure the con-
versation didnt turn extremely
vitriolic and partisan.
Controversial not in the sense
of the position that they take on
an issue, Lacy said. But we real-
ly emphasize being respectful of
other points of view, of being civil
and cordial.
Lacy said he was disappointed
when former President George
H.W. Bush got heckled during his
reception of the Dole Leadership
prize last year.
That night when I went home,
every Kansas City TV station led
with President Bush being heckled
at the University of Kansas, which
makes all of us look not that
particularly good.
Yehle said he has received phone
calls from people who are con-
cerned about a speaker booking,
but said he leaned toward the side
of letting speakers speak.
Its about freedom of thought,
Yehle said. Its about academic
investigation. You cannot be the
University without hearing from
When Barnes comes to campus,
she said she expects to take full
advantage of her platform. Barnes,
who now leads a public leadership
program at Park University, said
she would draw on her experi-
ences to discuss a variety of issues,
including dealing with everyday
brush fires, with one community
group opposing another.
One segment of the communi-
ty getting into a fuss with another,
she said. Union issues, neighbor-
hood issues, so, I always had to be
prepared to respond in one way or
another to those.

MOGADISHU, Somalia The
U.S. helicopters, guns blazing,
swooped over a convoy carrying a

ern Somalia. Elite commandos rap-

bodies, and took off on a cloud of
red dust.
The raid took just 15 minutes.
Saleh Ali Saleh Nabhan, wanted
for the 2002 car bombing of a beach
resort in Kenya and an attempt to
shoot down an Israeli airliner, was
killed in Mondays raid, according
to U.S. and Somali officials.

Both Dolinsky, a midfelder, and
Johnson, a defender, were invited
to participate in the United Soccer
Leagues W-League combine this
month, but turned the opportuni-
ty down because it conficted with
games against Oklahoma State and
Oral Roberts University. Te com-
bine provides a chance for woman
soccer players to train and play in
front of professional coaches from
diferent professional leagues,
including the elite Womens Pro-
fessional Soccer league. But both
players decided it wasnt worth
missing a conference matchup
against Oklahoma State.
If it wasnt during conference, I
defnitely would have gone, John-
son said, But it wasnt worth it to
miss that game.
Dolinsky said some of her fam-
ily advised her to attend the com-
bine anyway, but she decided the
game was still more important.
It was defnitely a big decision,
but the biggest thing is my com-
mitment here, Dolinsky said,
And if we have a good season,
that will only better our chances of
being recognized.
Te two said they still hope to
attend a similar combine put on
by the higher-level WPS in De-
cember, however, plans for that
combine have not been confrmed,
Melanie Fitzgerald, director of W-
League operations, said.

players deserved the invitation,
and said he believed they should
still get the opportunity to pro-
mote themselves at a professional
I think its really dumb for the
league to have a combine in Sep-

Fitzgerald said the W-League

frame this year. Te WPS held two
combines last December, which

The physical side of freshman
running back Toben Opurum
is easily and visibly noticeable.
Hes 6-foot-2, 235 pounds and
with pads and a helmet on, he
looks even bigger.
That part of Opurum is well
Whats harder to understand
and harder still to quan-
tify is Opurums smooth
transition into the ranks of
Division I football in just his
first season.
Senior running back Jake
Sharp, who played sparingly
as a freshman four years ago
and works daily with Opurum,
thinks he has an answer.
Its kind of odd, Sharp said.
You have to be very calm and
mentally capable of learning the
offense and taking everything
in. And hes a guy thats pretty
laid back. That allows him to
take everything in and roll with
the punches.
In just two games both
of which were lopsided Kansas
victories Opurum has dis-
played the qualities that origi-
nally attracted traditional foot-
ball powerhouses such as Notre
Dame and Florida when he was
in high school.
Opurum has rushed for 141
yards on 24 carries this sea-
son while totaling three rushing
touchdowns in relief of Sharp,
Kansas starting running back.
Hes a good
one-two punch
with Jake,
offensive coor-
dinator Ed
Warriner said.
Thats a good
change up for
Against UTEP
on Saturday,
Opurum carried
the ball 16 times for 62 yards
and a touchdown. In that game,
he showed a versatility relatively
unique amongst running backs:
The speed to gash the middle of
the defense and the size to power
through smaller defenders.
Still, as both Warriner and
coach Mark Mangino noted,
Opurum is only a freshman.
Every day is probably some-
thing new for him, Mangino
said. He probably learns some-
thing on the practice fields or in
the meeting rooms
probably every day.
I think Im only
going to get better
and improve as I get
more comfortable
with the offense and
get more playing
time, Opurum said.
During the offsea-
son, Opurum was
listed on the depth
chart as Kansas backup running
back along with sophomore Rell
But in the weeks leading up
to Kansas season opener against
Northern Colorado, Opurum
separated himself from Lewis to
become the lone second-string
running back. He hasnt relin-
quished the title since.
I think Ive done a good job
when I actually do get in a game
in taking advantage of my car-
ries, Opurum said.
Warriner said the number of
carries Opurum receives this
season will depend on his con-
tinued progress and the situation
of the game. His size, Warriner
said, obviously plays a large part
in the equation.
But Sharp said thats far from
the only reason hes seeing sig-
nificant playing time early.
For a freshman, mentally is
whats really set him apart and
allowed him to play out there,
Sharp said. Hes very mature for
a freshman. If he keeps working
hard well see some great things
from him.

Team heads to Columbia, Mo., for frst Big 12 game this season. VOLLEYBALL | 3B
Victory needed for strong start
Go to or send your picks to
Kick the Kansan in football
ve always been an ardent sup-
porter of the Big 12.
Last year, when some of my
buddies doubted the legitimacy of
Texas Tech because it couldnt stop
a high school offense, I defended it.
Ive been on the Big 12s side in way
too many arguments.
But early results this season are
definitely testing my faith.
Oklahoma State is obviously
the biggest victim of last weekend,
losing at home to Houston 45-35.
The Cougars came out firing,
leading at half 24-7, and weath-
ered a Cowboy comeback to take
down the No. 5 ranked team in
the nation.
Weve seen Oklahoma score
only 13 points in a loss to
BYU. Texas was in a battle with
Wyoming until the second half.
The bottom of the Big 12 North
looks even worse. Iowa State got
shellacked by an Iowa team that
needed two blocked field goals
to beat Northern Iowa. Colorado
gave up 54 points and 624 total
yards to Toledo. Kansas State
couldnt knock off the Ragin
Cajuns of Louisiana Lafayette.
That SEC vs. Big 12 debate?
Yeah ... about that.
This all affects Kansas football
in a few ways.
First, a sub-standard Big 12
will not help Kansas strength of
schedule, a key factor in where it
will be ranked in the polls. Kansas
could lose just once in the regular
season, lose in the Big 12 champi-
onship and not end up in a BCS
Ask Missouri fans about 2008 if
you want to know how much that
hurts. Something about Kansas
getting into the Orange Bowl
despite losing to the Tigers two
weeks before.
Second, it could hurt its ability
to bring in quality recruits. Last
year, it seemed as though ABC had
a big-time Big 12 game on Saturday
night week in and week out. High
school football players watch those
games, and you know some of the
skill players on offense drool about
the possibilities in the Big 12.
If the Big 12 cant make Saturday
night quite as often this year,
maybe a few more stud recruits will
head to the SEC.
Despite all the hatred built up for
Missouri or Kansas State, Kansas
fans should cheer for them to win
their non-conference games. Seeing
Missouri winless in December
might be entertaining for some, but
it wont help Kansas get where it
wants to go: a quality bowl game.
Now none of this really matters
at all if Kansas gets upset anywhere
along the road. Duke may not be
a huge challenge, but Southern
Mississippi has looked impressive
in its two victories so far. Kansas
must avoid the upset bug.
But in the end, Kansas success is
tied to the success of the teams in
the Big 12.

here is simply nothing
like it.
You leisurely pour
yourself a cup of coffee, glug-
ging with every drop, emitting
a searing cloud of steam from
a chestnut waterfall. With your
cup in hand, you perch yourself
in a deep, cozy chair, fulfilling all
comfort requirements one could
compile. You reach out your
other, knowledge-seeking hand
to pick up the morning paper.
Gazing upon a valley of familiar
writers painting canvases of black
words on gray backdrops, you
turn the page and hear a crinkle
of colliding creases. Your unin-
formed mind has suddenly gotten
its fix.
However, the nostalgic routine
of reading the morning paper
was further jeopardized by the
launching of this
past Monday. Released by sports
media mammoth ESPN, the Web
site will cover all the needs of a
New England sports fan by pro-
viding stories, blogs and videos
of the Red Sox, Patriots, Celtics,
Bruins, Revolution and many
colleges and high schools in the
area, such as Boston College and
Harvard. The site joins already-
running Web sites for Chicago,
Dallas, Los Angeles and New
York in ESPNs goal of spreading
localized online hubs for every-
thing sports. Other notable sports
cities soon to receive a similar
fate include Washington, D.C.,
Atlanta and Pittsburgh, among
The Web sites are unquestion-
ably a strong step toward ESPNs
aim of near monopolization of
the sports world. Yet as the big-
bellied Goliaths of Bristol clink
cups and cackle at their triumphs,
the lowly stalwarts of the news-
paper industry can only weep in
dismay. These localized Web sites
are simply reeling in the final
days of the newspaper as an out-
let for sports information.
Of course, with every begin-
ning there is always a conclusion
looming close by. With the arrival
of, the Boston
Globe suffers a punishing blow:
the loss of revered Patriots beat
writer Mike Reiss. Reiss joins an
all-star cast at the new Web site,
featuring other esteemed writ-
ers Peter Gammons, Michael
Smith and Bill The Sports Guy
Simmons. It now seems inevitable
that Boston, one of the greatest
sports cities in the world, will
soon be subjected to sports news
on a computer screen, and a com-
puter screen only.
The move is now yours. Never
allow the memory of reading the
morning paper slip through the
crevices of your mind. Keep read-
ing the paper, letting us preserve
the tradition of print news and
maintaining the digital world as
an option and not the only way.
When I first heard DJ Shadows
Endtroducing ... I was 13 years
old, alone on a train heading
west. The train departed at the
crack of dawn and there wasnt
another person in sight. However,
these details became irrelevant as
soon as the first key was struck in
Building Steam With a Grain of
Salt. Immediately, Shadow cata-
pults the listener into a mysterious
world of unclassifiable sonic tex-
tures. While the album contains
certain influences from hip-hop,
jazz and soul, the result is an ethe-
real sound never heard before.
The percussion is the backbone
of the piece, drilling the ear with
violent punches of snare and bass
drums and crashing cymbals. Add
in spooky transmission samples
and Premo-like scratching and the
result is horrifying. This 1996 epic
will scare and enlighten you, but
the whole time youll be rocking
your head to the beat. Wait for
darkness to strike and treat your
ears to Organ Donor, The

The Philadelphia Eagles ele-

released to make room for Vick,
who is eligible to play Sept. 27

Vick was suspended for the first

running a dogfighting ring.
Kevin Kolb is expected to
take the snaps with the starters
Wednesday because Donovan
McNabb has a cracked rib. Jeff
Garcia was signed to back up Kolb
in case McNabb cant play.
Vick was brought in to give
the Eagles another dimension on

le, Hagan said. It doesnt bother

Team takes third in debut

The Jayhawks finished third as a
team yesterday with three players
placing in the top 10 individually
at The Fairway Club Invitational
held at Arbor Links Golf Course
in Nebraska City, Neb. The team
finished third overall.
This was the most rounded-off
team effort weve had since Ive
been here at Kansas, Coach Kit
Grove said. Three players in the
top 10, I definitely wouldve taken
that before the week started for
The tournament fielded 12 teams
and featured three rounds of golf
with all the teams playing 36 holes
Monday and then playing the final
round of 18 holes Tuesday.
Drake won the tournament with
a three-round total score of 852
strokes. Nebraska, the only other
Big 12 school in the tournament,
finished second with a total score
of 855. Kansas was right in there
with a total score of 859.
Kansas was lead by Nate Barbee,
Dakota Dunes, S.D., junior, who
fired a team-tying low score of 69
in the second round and finished in
fifth place overall individually with
a three-round score of 213.
The course was playing hard
today because there was a lot of
wind; I just tried to hang in there
after being three over through the
first six holes, Barbee said.
He did more than just hang in
there with a 3-under score of 33
on the back nine.
I was really proud of Nates play
today because he struggled in the
beginning, starting off at three or
four over, then battled back to get
to par, Grove said.
The low score of 69 for the
Jayhawks was matched in the final
round by Alex Gutesha, Greenwood
Village, Colo., freshman. For the
tournament, Gutesha tied for 10th
overall in his first collegiate action.
Grove called him a gutty player
and said the performance was all
he could ask of a player in his first
collegiate tournament.
For a freshman, Alex can basi-
cally score at will, teammate Bryan
Hackenberg said.
Hackenberg, Denver senior, also
placed in the top 10, tying for
eighth place.
I wouldve liked to play better
in the final round today, but Ill just
use it as motivation for the rest of
the year, Hackenberg said.
Chris Gilbert, Simi Valley, Calif.,
freshman, tied for 14th, and Patrick
Roth, Prairie Village senior, tied
for 20th.
Chris is really consistent, Grove
said. He drives the ball straight
and plots his way around the golf
course. I dont think hell ever shoot
a bad score for me.
All the players total scores
ranged from 213 to 219.
Gutesha said the season was
looking bright.
Im ecstatic to be on this team,
Gutesha said. We should be right
there in every tournament.

BOSTON Daisuke Matsuzaka
returned from a three-month stint
on the disabled list and pitched six
shutout innings on Tuesday night
to lead the Boston Red Sox to a
4-1 victory over the Los Angeles
Angels, their likely first-round
playoff opponent.
David Ortiz hit his record-
breaking 270th homer as a des-
ignated hitter and also added an
RBI single after Boston broke a
scoreless tie in the sixth thanks to
a throwing error by John Lackey
(10-8). The Red Sox have won six
straight since returning to Fenway
Park after Labor Day.
Jonathan Papelbon pitched the
ninth and gave up an RBI dou-
ble to Erick Aybar before Howie
Kendrick hit a soft roller to third
to end the game.
An 18-game winner last year,
Matsuzaka (2-5) did not allow a
hit through four innings and got
a standing ovation when he was
relieved after one batter in the
seventh. In all, Matsuzaka gave up
three hits and three walks while
striking out five for his first win
since June 2.
Lackey gave up three runs
two earned on eight hits and
three walks, striking out six and
leaving after J.D. Drew tripled and
scored on Jason Bays single to
make it 3-0 in the eighth. Ortiz
hit Jose Arredondos second pitch
to straightaway center to surpass
Frank Thomas atop the all-time
DH home run list.
The Angels won eight of their
previous 11 and entered the night
with a six-game lead over Texas
in the AL West; Boston led the
Rangers by 4 in the wild-card
race. If the standings hold, the
Red Sox and Angels would meet
in the first round of the playoffs
for the third consecutive season.
That hasnt worked out too well
for the Angels, who have lost 12 of
their last 13 playoff games against
Boston dating to 1986 and are
0-4 all-time in postseason series
against the Red Sox.
Matsuzaka was the MVP of the
World Baseball Classic for the sec-
ond time this spring, but he never
found his form when the season
started. He failed to complete six
innings in any of his eight starts
and had an 8.23 ERA when he
was placed on the disabled list
with right shoulder problems on
June 21.
He left with a 2-0 lead and
received a standing ovation when
he was pulled after walking
Kendry Morales to lead off the
seventh, with Red Sox manager
Terry Francona joining in as he
walked to the mound. Matsuzaka,
who was booed off the mound his
last time out at Fenway, waved his
cap to the crowd as he approached
the dugout.
Lackey matched Matsuzaka by
allowing just three hits through
five, but Alex Gonzalez singled
to lead off the sixth, and Jacoby
Ellsbury dropped a bunt along the
first-base line for a single. Dustin
Pedroia tried to sacrifice the run-
ners along, but Lackey fielded the
ball and threw a one-hopper to
third that got past third baseman
Chone Figgins; Gonzalez scored
and the runners moved up to sec-
ond and third.
Bay walked one out later to load
the bases before Ortiz hit a sink-
ing liner to left that Juan Rivera
couldnt get to. Ellsbury scored to
make it 2-0 as the runners, hold-
ing to make sure it wasnt caught,
only advanced one base apiece.

Swayze, 57, dies of cancer
AssociAted Press
Swayze personified a particular
kind of masculine grace both on
and off screen, from his roles in
films like Dirty Dancing and
Ghost to the way he carried him-
self in his long fight with pancre-
atic cancer.
Swayze died from the illness on
Monday in Los Angeles, his publi-
cist said. He was 57.
Patrick Swayze passed away
peacefully today with family at his
side after facing the challenges of
his illness for the last 20 months,
Annett Wolf said in a statement
Monday evening. She declined to
give details.
Fans of the actor were saddened
to learn in March 2008 that Swayze
was suffering from an especially
deadly form of cancer. He contin-
ued working despite the diagnosis,
putting together a memoir with
his wife and shooting The Beast,
an A&E drama series for which he
had already made the pilot.
Swayze said he chose not to
use painkillers while making The
Beast because they would have
taken the edge off his performance.
The show drew a respectable 1.3
million viewers when the 13 epi-
sodes ran this year, but A&E said it
reluctantly decided not to renew it
for a second season.
When he first went public with
the illness, some reports gave him
only weeks to live, but his doctor
said his situation was consider-
ably more optimistic than that.
Swayze acknowledged that time
might be running out given the
grim nature of the disease.
Id say five years is pretty wish-
ful thinking, Swayze told ABCs
Barbara Walters in early 2009.
Two years seems likely if youre
going to believe statistics. I want
to last until they find a cure, which
means Id better get a fire under
Patrick Swayze, portraying Johnny Castle, holds Jennifer Grey, portraying Baby Houseman,
in a scene fromDirty Dancing. The actor died Monday after a nearly two-year battle with
pancreatic cancer and continued acting after the diagnosis.

Athletics cheers on aca-
demics with a $40 mil-
lion donation to the University
announced Sept. 2. This money
is coming from a new seating
expansion that is a profitable
way to merge both aspects of
the University. Kansas Athletics
should be celebrated for its con-
The Athletics Department
announced plans for an addition
to Memorial Stadium; the seat-
ing expansion will be called The
Gridiron Club. According to a
University press release it will seat
about 3,000 fans, and will be built
atop the east side of the stadium.
Associate Athletics Director Jim
Marchiony said this new seating
section could raise funds for the
departments $40 million donation
to the University for academics.
We believe revenue
derived from those
seats will fund, at min-
imum, the construc-
tion and the donation
to the University,
Marchiony said.
Kansas Athletics really wanted to
do something that would help the
University. This seemed like a per-
fect way to help athletics and the
University as a whole.
In a trying economy, this
boost in funds can be used by
the University to improve vari-
ous programs or possibly dampen
the effect of raising tuition rates.
No plans have been finalized for
the use of the donation, but the
Athletics Department is clear
about its desire for the University
to decide how it is used.
Its not our intent to be
involved in any way with how that
money is spent, he said.
This donation is an example of
the camaraderie that
should continue to
exist between athlet-
ics and academics.
Though this is hardly
the first display of the
partnership between
athletics and academics, it is a
relationship that needs student
Many students dont realize the
great amount of funding athlet-
ics gives to the University on an
annual basis. Athletics funded
approximately $9 million last year.
Every time tuition goes up,
our contribution goes up as well,
Marchiony said.
This annual contribution goes
to tuition, room and board, books,
fees, etc. Also, Kansas Athletics
Inc.pays the University for any
scholarships given to student ath-
letes and has an ongoing partner-
ship with the KU Cancer Center.
The relationship is nothing
new according to Marchiony,
but the donation of an extra $40
million was a way to give a nod to
Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little.
Athletics is a big fan of the
chancellor and her vision of the
future at KU, Marchiony said.
He called the donation a good
indication of our support for that
The Athletics Department
should be applauded for its gen-
erosity. This donation will cre-
ate a sense of unity within the
University. Just as fans cheer on the
Jayhawks, Kansas Athletics is reit-
erating its support for students.

henever a new semes-
ter starts, its always
exciting to meet new
friends. However, identifying new
faces and memorizing different
names can be difficult.
Many Chinese friends of mine
prefer being called their English
names rather than their Chinese
ones. Some of them have English
names to fit Western culture;
some have one because theyre
easier to remember; and others
want one because they simply
cant stand their Chinese name. I
fall under the first category.
I enjoy being able to call myself
whatever name I want. Before
I chose the name Josie (after a
compelling female lawyer in a
Hong Kong TV drama), I was
Pricilla (given by my parents at
birth), Nicola (inspired by my
friend) and Cathy (my favorite
cartoon when I was 12 years old).
Living in an East-meets-West
culture inevitably shapes our
unique lifestyle and brings us rich
elements in life. Yet we should
still accept and appreciate our
unique cultural heritage. Chinese
words are sophisticated and
profound, and different combina-
tions often have different mean-
ings. I could never deny how
miraculous Chinese names are.
For instance, my Chinese
name is Ho, Chi Cheng. The first
word is my last name, Ho (the
last name goes first in Chinese
culture). Chi is a kind of white
flower and Cheng means sunny.
I love my Chinese name as
do my friends and Im always
excited to hear foreigners ask
what my Chinese name is. Not
only do they want to get to know
me, but they are also interested in
my heritage and culture.
When I first got Facebook, my
profile name was my Chinese
one. I am impressed when some
of my American friends call me
Chi Cheng instead of Josie. They
even ask me to translate their
English names into Chinese. I
got a Chinese name and its super
cool, theyll tell people. And yes,
it is super cool.
Its easier to memorize English
names in Western society. I was
so used to being called Josie that
when I went back to Macau last
summer it was strange to hear my
Chinese name again.
Chinese names are incredibly
meaningful and symbolic. Having
an English name is simply anoth-
er identifier, but it should never
be a replacement. Some Chinese
even refuse to have English
names because they think having
two names squanders their indi-
vidual uniqueness.
Its absolutely OK to have more
than one name, as long as you
dont forget or discard your origi-
nal one.
In Chinese culture, we believe
a good name can bring us good
fortune. Parents tend to give
names based on how they would
like their children to be.
So can names really be per-
sonality predictors? Next time
you meet someone from China,
make sure to ask for his or her
name as well as its meaning. Does
it match his or her personality? It
may be hard to remember, but it
never hurts to try.
Ho is a Macau, China, junior
in journalism.
Independent study fails to
deliver under current policy
m a commuter. It just makes
more sense for me to live in
Olathe. My family and job are
there, the crime rates are low and
its where all my high school friends
still live and work. But sometimes I
get tired of being an out-of-towner.
The K-10 Connector offers
plenty of benefits: handicap seat-
ing, bike racks, time for homework
(or sleep) and, on the newer buses,
individual air conditioning and
lighting. The number of buses has
even increased to accommodate
more sitting room.
Despite all of this, the bus lines
are notorious for being up to an
hour late during winter and have
recently increased in price.
This month, the $15 bus tickets
became invalid whether you had
a chance to use them or not and
now only the electronic stubs, cost-
ing $22.50, are available. The new
weekly price is almost the same as
a tank of gas, and $6 to purchase an
individual round trip is definitely
more expensive than driving.
The result is a more expensive,
less reliable mode of transportation
that looks less and less appealing to
poor college students.
Reverting to driving, which is
just as expensive without any of the
benefits, isnt any more appealing.
With commuting no longer looking
like such a great option, I looked
into the Universitys independent
study program.
I was skeptical at first. Ive taken
online classes elsewhere that con-
sisted solely of open-book quizzes
and halfhearted discussion boards.
To their credit, the Universitys
online classes are just as challeng-
ing and fulfilling as those classes
taught on campus. But of course
there are drawbacks.
According to the Universitys
continuing education Web site,
Independent study classes dont
count toward establishing a full-
time student status, even though
they now conform to the same
time-limit as regular classes. So
even though Im taking 15 credit
hours, I only count as a part-time
That caveat isnt a big deal,
unless someone decides to enroll
in only independent study classes.
If a student works full-time, needs
to go on maternity leave or just
cant afford the commute anymore,
independent study is a logical thing
to do. But then, according to the
system, they arent actually attend-
ing the University.
This means they dont qualify for
financial aid from the University or
the government, because they are
no longer technically college stu-
dents. Theoretically, this is the sort
of situation that the Universitys
monthly payment plan is for,
except that the department of con-
tinuing education isnt part of that
plan. Theyre trying to put together
their own for next year, but for now
its one lump sum due without aid.
When I e-mailed the depart-
ment for advice, I was told to put
my tuition and textbook cost on
a credit card and slowly pay it off
from there. Considering all the
effort the University puts into
educating students on debt, I was
The University of Kansas is a
wonderful school, and students
come from all over the world to
study here. But its a shame that
students only 30 miles away are
ghosts to the system.

locker room floor. My eyes
wandered across the lockers
and I dubiously gazed into the
next room the scale room.
I crept to the scale and placed
one foot on it after the other,
watching my weight spin the
dial as furiously as a top. As
the numbers whirred past, the
steadily spinning needle became
a condemning swirl of disap-
Then, as swift and unforgiving
as I had imagined it to be, the
scale confirmed what I already
knew I gained weight.
I could already see myself on
an Atkins or Nutrisystem com-
mercial, spilling my guts about
how I had gained gruesome
amounts of weight at a young
age and then lost it all by eating
nothing but MREs and celery
I lost 250 pounds in five
weeks! a superimposed message
over my before-and-after pic-
tures would read.
However, I wasnt the only
one who accumulated fat faster
than a Beverly Hills liposuction
clinic. Freshmen usually enter
college life as lean, mean athletic
machines, only to be introduced
to the caloric compilation of din-
ing services and Busch Light.
In all reality, students spend
more time on beer runs than
real runs.
The result was a sad fulfill-
ment of the Freshman 15
cliche waistlines expand,
body fat percentages grow and
the number of Michael Moore
look-a-likes increase. If we dont
watch it, we get fat.
Of course, everyone knows
weight gain is an ever-growing
problem (pun intended) in
todays lazy society. With an
extensive array of TV dinners,
dollar menus and high-defini-
tion TV, Americans have already
given everyone a 20-pound
handicap by birth, sending doc-
tors and scientists screaming.
And since we have no concern
for this potbellied apocalypse,
after tacking on the Freshman
15, most of us tend to just give
up. But weight loss is about
taking responsibility, maintain-
ing a nutritional diet and good
exercise habits. And even if
youve fallen you can always get
up. Weight gains will happen.
You will discover the miracles
of Panda Express and Stouffers.
And you will, like me, fear the
scale. But thats acceptable for
now because were all in the

W-league gives collegiate players
professional-level experience dur-
ing the ofseason without losing
eligibility. It also provided some
unique game experiences for the
two Jayhawks.
One game Johnson said she had
to guard U.S. Womens National
Team player Natasha Kai.
It didnt go so well for me,
Johnson said.
Te league also gave her an op-
portunity to play with one of her
best friends who now plays for the
University of Colorado. Dolinsky
spent the summer living with a
host family in order to compete
with the team.
Teir form during the summer
was enough to merit a recom-
mendation from their coach for
the combine. Tirty-fve players
out of the 128 combine partici-
pants were drafed into the WPS
last year. Tis year only 90 players
are participating in the combine,
intensifying the competition. Te
WPS has existed for only one year,
but it is the highest-level womens
soccer league in the world and at-
tracts stars from across the globe.
For Dolinsky and Johnson, it is
a long-held dream that could be
within their grasp.
What else could you ask for,
you know just still doing what
you love doing, Dolinsky said.
Francis said only one other
player from Kansas, Holly Gault,
had attended a similar profession-
al combine during his tenure as
coach. He believes his two current
captains have the potential to con-
tinue their careers past college.
When they go to the combine,
obviously they need to show well,
he said, But I think they both
defnitely have the ability to play
in the league.

chiefs search for receivers
Associated Press
Kansas City Chiefs shuffled in
a new pair of hands Tuesday in
coach Todd Haleys continuing
quest to locate an acceptable set of
wide receivers. Still unclear is who
would be throwing the ball.
Haley said it was too early to
know if quarterback Matt Cassel
will miss a second straight start this
weekend because of an injury to his
left knee. But he is hopeful of mak-
ing a decision earlier than Sunday,
when the decision was made just
hours before the season-opener at
If Cassel remains out, Brodie
Croyle would make a second start,
this one against Oakland, after
earning generally high marks in
the 38-24 loss to the Ravens.
Matt is doing everything he can
to be ready, Haley said. I would
hope I would know a little sooner
this week, although right now I
cant give a definitive answer. But
the players doing everything he
can to be ready, which generally
helps speed the healing process.
In the meantime, receiver Bobby
Wade, a six-year NFL veteran with
stops in Chicago, Tennessee and
Minnesota, was signed. The Chiefs
waived Turk McBride, who had
been playing linebacker after being
a starter most of last year at defen-
sive end.
Croyle hit 16 of 24 passes in
place of Cassel
for 177 yards and
two TDs. But the
quality of the wide
receiver corps is
something Haley
has fussed over all
year. Hes made it
clear the Chiefs
may be reworking
the bottom of the
lineup constantly.
Were looking and digging all
the time, he said. If theres some-
body out there we think makes
us better, were going to do whats
necessary to get that done.
Dwayne Bowe, the Chiefs best
receiver, was demoted to third
team during training camp in what
appeared to be an effort to moti-
vate better work habits.
Im looking for guys that do it
the way we want it done, Haley
said. Talent is the great separa-
tor. There may be some guys who
are doing everything the way we
want it done, but
maybe theyre just
not good enough.
Then theres some
guys who potentially
can be really good,
but theyre not doing
it the way we want it
done. ...
I want physical
receivers just like I
want physical players
at every other position and guys
that help block in the run game
and are football players, not just

Duke freshman
to see more play
Associated Press
Lewis probably knew hed hear
the term quarterback contro-
versy this week after the way
backup Sean Renfree played in
Dukes weekend win at Army.
He just wont let himself think of
it that way.
I knew going into the season
that Sean was going to play,
Lewis said Tuesday. So theres
not a controversy at all, but it
is a competition. We compete,
but we make each other better
and we want to make this team
Thats what coach David
Cutcliffe is aiming for heading
into this weekends trip to No.
22 Kansas. He
has repeatedly
heaped praise
on Renfree, a
redshirt fresh-
man, even as
hes gone out of
his way to point
out that Lewis is
still No. 1 on the
depth chart.
Hes also made it clear that
Renfree has earned the right to
play each week.
Weve got a starting quarter-
back, Cutcliffe said. The cir-
cumstances can be just like a
pitcher in baseball. If a pitcher
needs relief help, hes going to
get relief help. If he can pitch a
complete game, hes usually left
in there.
But you can see now why
Ive been saying all along that,
regardless of play, I wanted Sean
Renfree to play. I shouldve
played him in the first game
(against Richmond) and didnt.
I had plans to play him without
a doubt at Army. I have plans
to play him again this week. He
will play.
Still, while Lewis is saying all
the right things about supporting
Renfree, the difference between
their play at Army couldnt have
escaped him.
Lewis, a four-year starter, went
just 5-for-16 for 60 yards before
Renfree got his shot. Renfree
went 7-for-8 for 106 yards and
two touchdowns, with one of
those coming on his first col-
legiate throw. That and back-
to-back interception returns for
touchdowns from Leon Wright
late in the game helped the
Blue Devils (1-1) turn a 14-13
lead into a 35-19 victory.
Weve seen (Renfree) in prac-
tice and know what he can do in
practice, running back Requan
Boyette said. But to see him
out there against
live bullets and
everything moving
faster than it does
in practice was
very positive. It just
showed us that he
can do it through-
out the game.
While Renfrees
play will push
Lewis, Cutcliffe said it wasnt
like the senior wasnt already
working hard to get better.
Its not been a matter of not
being focused or energized or
motivated, Cutcliffe said. I
think its probably human nature
that when you see your backup
playing pretty well, the adrena-
line flows. Thats just kind of
normal and thats OK. Thats
good for anybody.
Lewis figures the competition
cant hurt. After all, its still his
job to lose.
When youve got two quar-
terbacks who are on point,
Lewis said, that just drives the
offense to be better than they are
right now.
You can see now
why I've been saying
all along that, regard-
less of play, I wanted
Sean Renfee to play.

Last-place Royals defeat
division-leading Tigers
DETROIT Jim Leyland is out
of answers.
Not only did his division-leading
Detroit Tigers drop a fifth straight
game to the last-place Kansas City
Royals, 11-1 on Tuesday night, he
has to fill another spot in his patch-
work rotation.
Jarrod Washburn lasted just one
inning the shortest start of his
career and gave up four runs
before it became obvious that his
sore left knee wasnt up to pitching.
The Tigers lost Nate Robertson
(groin) and Armando Galarraga
(elbow) last week, while Dontrelle
Willis and Jeremy Bonderman have
been unavailable for almost the
entire season.
I dont have any information
for you right now, because I dont
have any information for myself,
Leyland said. I have no idea who
is going to pitch. Well get together
and try to figure something out.
Washburn (9-9) struck out
David DeJesus to start the game,
but Willie Bloomquist doubled
and Billy Butler and Miguel Olivo
walked to load the bases.
A passed ball allowed the first run
to score before Alberto Callaspo hit
a three-run homer into the Kansas
City bullpen in left-center field.
When youve got a pitcher on
the ropes like that, you have to fin-
ish him off, DeJesus said. Even
though hes hurt, we still have to
play the game.
Washburn finished the inning,
but was replaced by Zach Miner
for the second, and fell to 1-3 with
a 7.33 ERA in eight starts since
being acquired from Seattle on
July 31.
Shortly after the strikeout, we
could tell he was in pain, Leyland
said. Well see what happens, but it
seems pretty obvious to me that, at
this point, hes unpitchable.
The win was Kansas Citys fourth
over Detroit in the last eight days,
and Robinson Tejedas second in
less than a week.
The Tigers arent as at full
strength as Jim would like them,
and we understand that, Kansas
City manager Trey Hillman said.
But they are still playing for some-
thing, and we dont feel sorry for
them, just like no one feels sorry
for us for being in last place.
Tejeda (3-1) allowed one run
and two hits in five innings after
shutting them out for six innings
on Sept. 9.
I dont think Im an ace or any-
thing like that, Tejeda said. Im
just going out there and throwing
the ball, and Ive gotten the oppor-
tunity to beat them two times in a

Marlins pitchers outduel Cardinals
ST. LOUIS One pitch kept
Adam Wainwright from his
19th win. It kept the St. Louis
Cardinals magic number at 10,
Dan Uggla golfed a two-run
homer on an ankle-high curve-
ball for the go-ahead hit in the
sixth inning and rookie Sean West
had a season-high nine strikeouts
while outpitching Wainwright in
the Florida Marlins 2-1 victory
on Tuesday.
I had a blast, West said. The
main thing was I wanted to attack
those guys and I said Here you
go and got some swings, got
some strikeouts, and all around a
good performance.
Wainwright (18-8) allowed
two runs in seven innings and
struck out eight, not quite good
enough to make him the major
leagues first 19-game winner. He
had been 6-0 with a 1.99 ERA in
seven starts since Aug. 8.
Almost every night with
this team thats going to win,
Wainwright said. The guy on the
other side pitched a great game.
Wainwright said catcher Yadier
Molina would have had to block
the pitch in the dirt if Uggla had
not made contact. Uggla wasnt
arguing the point.
He didnt make a mistake,
Uggla said. I probably wasnt
supposed to hit the ball out of the
ballpark, but somehow I did and
Ill take it.
The 23-year-old West (7-5)
topped his previous strike-
out best of seven in six strong
innings. The 6-foot-8 left-hander
escaped with minimal damage
in the fifth when the Cardinals
loaded the bases with one out
and the middle of the order com-
ing up. Albert Pujols settled for a
sacrifice fly to give St. Louis the
lead, but Matt Holliday struck
out to end the inning.
I kind of gave a little smirk
when Pujols came up and the
crowd went crazy, West said. I
got a slider in at his feet and he
popped it up and that was huge
right there because Im pretty
sure he can hit it out of the park
pretty easy.
Holliday looked a little sus-
ceptible to sliders, thats what I
fed him, and I got him twice.
Leo Nunez, the fourth Florida
pitcher, worked the ninth for his
21st save in 27 chances.
The Marlins entered 5 games
behind Colorado for the NL wild
card. The NL Central-leading
Cardinals have lost four of five.
St. Louis is 26-20 against left-
handers, but 12-5 since acquiring
Holliday on July 24. Ryan Ludwick
thought hitters chased too many
sliders out of the strike zone.
I dont like our lineup against
anybody if we help the pitcher as
much as we did tonight, man-
ager Tony La Russa said.
