KU students lost a fellow Jayhawk dur-
ing fall break.
Andrew Mullin, a KU graduate in
the School of Law, died at his home in
Lawrence on Friday, Oct. 17.
Jill Jess, associate director of KU news
and media relations, said she didn’t know
how Mullin died. The Douglas County
Coroner’s Office was not available to com-
ment on the incident.
Gail Agrawal, dean
of the School of Law,
said Mullins’ friends
and teachers would
remember him for his
“dry wit and ability to
turn a phrase.” After
rereading his personal
statement he wrote
when applying to Law School, she said,
“He had a way with words that gave you
some insight into his soul and himself as
a person — his self-deprecating humor; a
little sense of irony.”
Mullin was the second Law student to
have died in recent months.
“One of the hardest things I have had
to do as a dean is attempt to console grief
stricken families and classmates,” Agrawal
said in an e-mail. “There is a special pain
and sorrow in mourning a student, inevi-
tably younger, with so much promise to be
fulfilled and so much life to be lived. We
extend our deepest sympathies to Andrew’s
family and friends.”
Chancellor Robert Hemenway also sent
his condolences to Mullin’s family and
friends.
“On behalf of the entire University com-
munity... our hearts go out to them at this
time of great loss,” Hemenway said in an
e-mail.
Mullin, a Summerfield Scholar, was
a second-year law student who gradu-
ated with distinction with a bachelor’s
in English from the University in 1998.
He participated in the University Honors
Program and was a member of Phi Beta
Kappa. He also studied at the American
University in Cairo, Egypt.
A memorial service is scheduled for 10
a.m. on Thursday at Asbury Methodist
Church, 5400 W. 75th St., in Prairie
Village.

Got milk?
Student Health Services hopes stu-
dents do. A milk mustache event held at
the Student Recreation Fitness Center
Tuesday aimed to educate students about
the importance of milk in their diets.
Ann Chapman, dietitian for Student
Health Services, said students were not
getting enough calcium in their daily
diets. She said most students who went in
to have their eating habits evaluated didn’t
drink milk. Chapman said it was more
common for students to drink pop, water
or iced tea with their meals.
“It’s amazing how much milk con-
sumption has gone down,” she said.
Sarah Mann, Overland Park senior,
said she had never been much of a milk-
drinker. Whether living with her parents
during high school or living on her own,
Mann said she had milk with her cereal.
Otherwise, the occasional glass was all
she drank.
According to the National Dairy
Council, three 8-ounce glasses of milk
can account for almost all daily calcium
needs. A diet lacking in calcium can lead
to unhealthy bones, and milk provides the
body with nine essential nutrients. Along
with being a good source of calcium, milk
also offers a large amount of vitamin D,
which helps bones absorb the calcium.
But not all students can get their cal-
cium from milk or dairy products. The
National Dairy Council estimates about
25 percent of the U.S. population suffers
from lactose intolerance. The condition
doesn’t mean those individuals can’t con-
sume dairy products, it means their bod-
ies can’t break down lactose, a key ingre-
dient in dairy products. The National
Dairy Council suggests that people with
the condition supplement their diets with
yogurt or aged cheese, such as cheddar.
Diana Spathis, Chicago senior, discov-
ered she was lactose intolerant halfway
through her freshman year. She includes
calcium in her diet by taking calcium pills
daily. She said avoiding problem foods
had never been difficult.
“I’ve always been a really picky eater,”
Spathis said. “It was never really a prob-
lem. I just eat what I like. If something
makes me sick, I stop eating it.”
Spathis said she didn’t often think about
the prevalence of calcium in her diet, but
would if it became a health issue.
Chapman said college students often
removed milk from their diets without
thinking of the long-term effects. She said
students could go four years without drink-
ing milk and not give it a second thought
because they didn’t feel the effects.
“Your bones aren’t going to feel
weak now,” Chapman said. “You aren’t
going to notice it until you get older.
Strengthening bones is a process that’s
years in the making.”
Tuesday’s event took place in the front
entrance of the recreation center. Students
were offered free samples of white, choco-
late or soy milk. In addition, students
could have their picture taken wearing
milk mustaches, win prizes and learn
more about the importance of calcium.

Hospital charges $162,
doesn’t provide treatment
DALLAS — A woman says
she waited 19 hours at Parkland
Memorial Hospital’s emergency
department for treatment of a
broken leg and never did get to
see a doctor — but still got a bill
for $162.
Amber Joy Milbrodt, who said
she broke a bone in her leg while
playing volleyball, received the
bill two weeks after her Sept. 24
visit.
Parkland ofcials say the bill
was appropriate because a nurse
spent time checking her vital
signs to assess her level of need.
But that’s not how Milbrodt
sees it. “It should have been more
like them paying me for having to
sit in the emergency room for 19
hours,” she told The Dallas Morn-
ing News.
The assessment by the nurse,
which lasted a few minutes,
established her place in line that
night. By that time, Milbrodt said,
she had already been waiting
about 3½ hours.
She still had not been called
more than 15 hours later, so she
gave up and went home. She had
an X-ray taken at a chiropractic
school where she is a student,
which confrmed that she had a
fracture.
“She’s not paying for waiting,”
says Rick Rhine, the hospital’s
vice president in charge of billing.
“She’s paying for the assessment
she received.”
Milbrodt, 29, who has no
insurance, said she does not plan
to pay. After leaving the ER, she
rested at home for a few days and
then put her leg in a brace, which
she still wears. It seems to be
healing, she said.
A few days before Milbrodt’s
visit, a 58-year-old man who went
to the ER with stomach pains also
waited 19 hours — and then suf-
fered cardiac arrest and died.
Hospital ofcials say they
need more beds to handle the
excessive number of patients
who need care. A bond mea-
sure on the Nov. 4 ballot would
provide funds for a new, larger
hospital.
Fort Worth’s large public
hospital, John Peter Smith, shares
Parkland’s policy of charging for
a triage assessment. But other
hospitals in Dallas, such as Baylor
University Medical Center, don’t
charge if the person never sees a
doctor.
University appeals to
donors with ‘blah’ letter
FRAMINGHAM, Mass. — An
attempt to reach younger donors
with a breezily written letter that
uses the word “blah” 137 times
has some Framingham State
College alumni questioning the
school’s professionalism, judg-
ment and ... blah, blah, blah.
The Sept. 5 letter, signed by
the president of the school’s
alumni association, was sent
to about 6,000 recent gradu-
ates who hadn’t donated to the
school. It used standard fundrais-
ing pitches, interspersed with
sentences of nothing but “blah.”
“With the recent economic
downturn and loan crisis, it has
become even more important
for Framingham State College to
receive your support. Blah, blah,
blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah,
blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah,
blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah,
blah, blah, blah, blah,” one part of
the letter read.
Christopher Hendry, the
school’s vice president of college
advancement, told the MetroW-
est Daily News of Framingham he
approved the letter, which he said
was written in a marketing style
expected to appeal to younger
donors.
Alumnus Ken Shifman, a 2003
graduate, said the letter “insults
the intelligence” of alumni.
“It just doesn’t seem like some-
thing from a legitimate univer-
sity,” Shifman said.
After several complaints,
Hendry sent a letter of apology
a month later in which he called
the frst letter a “misguided and
embarrassing attempt to connect
with alumni in a diferent way.”
However, Hendry notes that
after the “blah” letter was sent,
the school collected about $2,000
from nearly 40 alumni who had
never previously given money.
Judge orders bride-to-be
to stay away from fance
IOWA CITY, Iowa — A judge
has ordered an suburban Chicago
woman to stay away from her
fance — two weeks before their
wedding.
Johnson County, Iowa, Judge
Stephen Gerard ordered 23-year-
old Rucha A. Patel on Monday
not to have contact with the
man after she was charged with
domestic abuse causing injury.
Her fance’s name was not
released.
Police said Patel drove over the
man’s foot and then bit his hand
when he took away her keys to
prevent her from driving Monday
in Iowa City. It was not known
why he tried to stop Patel.
Patel told the judge the
marriage was scheduled in two
weeks.
A call left for Rucha Patel was
not returned.

hjones@kansan.com
Student Senate is scheduled to
vote tonight on whether to cap
the amount of
money student
coalitions can
spend on their
campaigns dur-
ing Senate elec-
tions at $6,000.
If passed by
full Senate, the
bill would also
shorten the
time coalitions
would be allowed to campaign to
keep the elections from interfer-
ing with students’ education at the
University.
Mason Heilman, Lawrence
junior and Student Executive
Committee chairman, said con-
densing the elections cycle would
allow those involved in elections
to focus on academics while also
dedicating time to Senate elec-
tions. He said it
would decrease
the amount
of harass-
ment students
not involved
in campaigns
would have to
experience on
campus. Senate
elections have
deviated from
serving their purpose to enhance
students’ education, he said.
“We really tried to strike a bal-
ance between making sure can-
didates can get out their message
and students can hear that message
while not being overly bombard-
ed,” Heilman said.
Some student senators who
opposed the bill said it would not
increase the impartiality of the
elections process.
Adam Wood, Lawrence senior,
said the time limit was unfair to
smaller coalitions because they
couldn’t do as much as the larger
ones in six weeks. Wood said it
would be “basically impossible”
for Senate to accurately enforce a
spending limit.
“Larger campaigns can afford
to exceed the spending limit by
budgeting enough money to afford
the fines they would have to pay
for going over,” Wood said. “Why
kid ourselves? Let’s not delude our-
selves that this somehow is going
to be fair.”
Elise Higgins, Topeka junior,
said campaigning before the
spring elections last year lasted
six months and several coalitions,
including former coalitions United
Students and ConnectKU, spent
about $10,000
on their cam-
paigns while
others spent
t h o u s a n d s
less. One for-
mer coalition,
Students for
Liberty, spent
just $75. She
said the elec-
tions process
should be more
regulated and the time limit for
campaigning should be set at six
weeks, including elections week.
Bill Walberg, El Dorado Hills,
Calif., senior, said he agreed with
cutting campaign time but not
the campaigns’ budgets. He said
that it was difficult to get students
involved in the elections and that
putting a cap on the budget would
take away from
the coalitions’
“social bud-
gets,” which
included mak-
ing buttons,
posters and
having kickoff
parties.
“We don’t
have a cap on
the presidential
election. Why
do we need a cap on this one?”
Walberg said. “I think it should
be a microcosm of the real thing
if people are going to take us seri-
ously.”
Wood said the bill did not
accomplish either of its objectives
to regulate elections and help out
the smaller coalitions. He said it
weakened new or third party coali-
tions because they did not have
an established base of support or
financial stability at the beginning
of a campaign.
“This will actually create an arti-
ficial barrier on how much honest
people can spend,” Wood said.
The senators debated about
whether some rules were better
than no rules, regardless of their
enforceability.
Sarah Shier, Salina freshman,
said even though the rules might
not be enforced perfectly, it would
be better to punish disobedience
rather than to ignore it.

At the end of almost every
day, Steve Sobczak recalls the
same thing: He bought two bags
of chips, two bottles of soda and
lunch — all of which were on
campus.
Sobczak, Kansas City, Mo.
graduate student, is one of many
students choosing to eat on cam-
pus to avoid wasting expensive
gasoline, among other reasons.
As a result, KU Dining Services is
seeing more student activity and
larger revenues than ever before.
Alecia Stultz, assistant direc-
tor of dining retail, said every
dining venue on campus had 100
more customers per day on aver-
age since last year. This increase
is due, in part, to the enrollment
of 30,102 students this year — the
largest the University has ever
had.
“It’s almost awful — it’s like
I can’t go fast enough,” Emma
Swendson, Atchison freshman and
Hawk Shop employee, said of the
increased student traffic. “I’m get-
ting frustrated, and so are they.”
Each year, KU Dining Services
tries to increase its revenues by
3 to 5 percent, Stultz said. Last
year, the highest sales day for The
Underground was $18,181. Stultz
said the Underground surpassed
that figure an average of once a
week this year.
KU Dining Services spent
about $8,000 this year for out-
door seating to alleviate crowd-
ing at The Underground. This is
the third consecutive year Dining
Services has expanded outdoor
accommodations.
Because of rising food costs,
students are also spending more
when they eat at campus dining
locations. The average amount
students spend per visit has
increased to $4.28 per meal, up
from $3.98 last year.
“It’s been challenging for us,”
David Mucci, director of KU
Memorial Unions, said. “We
weren’t expecting the explosion in
food costs that we’ve had.”
KU Dining Services also
launched its “Lose the Lids” cam-
paign, an effort to reduce waste
by moving lids and straws beyond
the cash registers in campus eat-
eries. It resulted in a 60 percent
decrease in 32-ounce lid usage
since the beginning of the year,
which has saved approximately
3,000 lids and $108.
Stultz said that the little money
saved was always quickly spent
elsewhere.
“That money can go toward
four cases of crunchy chicken
for the crunchy chicken cheddar
wraps,” Stultz said.
The next step for KU Dining
Services was to use eco-friend-
ly cardboard salad containers.
The new containers are 11 cents
cheaper than the old contain-
ers with lids. Stultz said Dining
Services was trying to reduce its
use of Styrofoam and petroleum-
based products.

When University graduates
enter the workforce in the months
following their walk down the hill,
the mountain of accumulated debt
from college may prove to be a
heavier burden than they antici-
pated.
According to Robert Baker,
education coordinator and coun-
selor at the Housing and Credit
Counseling Institute in Lawrence,
people are using credit reports
more often to determine eligibil-
ity for cell phone plans, insurance
rates and even employment.
“You’re just going to find that
you have less choice in general for
anything that involves a credit ref-
erence, especially for loans,” Baker
said.
Baker estimated that he and
other counselors at the Institute
saw between 40 and 50 KU stu-
dents each month. He said many
of them made their first visit when
the six-month grace period on gov-
ernment student loans ended.
“When we see students post-
graduation, often it will be at the
end of summer or early fall,” said
Baker, who noted that graduates
who seek debt counseling were
often already reaching a crisis
point.
“They’re seeing what that
10-year repayment schedule is.
They’re seeing what their final
take-home pay is going to be, and
there’s a disconnect there.”
John Wade, a psychologist with
KU Counseling and Psychological
Services, said debt often contrib-
uted to the stress that clients at
the University’s clinic were deal-
ing with. Despite that observation,
he said, there were no statistics
pointing to debt-related stress as a
primary complaint of individuals
seeking psychological counseling.
“I’ve worked with clients for
whom finances are a real concern
and stress in their lives,” Wade said,
“but I’m not sure if I’ve ever had a
client whose main concern is just
that. We’re stressed because we’re
busy, because we’re crunched for
money, because our debt is increas-
ing, and often, those issues stay in
the background.”
Baker said procrastination in
dealing with debt issues further
exacerbated financial stress.
“I would say that about half
the clients we see wait until things
are in the crisis stage,” Baker said.
“About 25 percent of all former
students who come in with student
loan concerns, it’s not when they
realize they might not be able to
afford it, it’s when it’s gone into
default, and now they’re in danger
of garnishment or collection by a
third party.”
Stephanie Covington, associate
director of the Office of Student
Financial Aid, is part of the
Financial Literacy Task Force, a
project that began in August with
the goal of educating students
on the use of credit and other
financial instruments. Covington
said that a main goal of the task
force was to preempt the difficul-
ties that a growing number of
students were encountering with
their debt.
“We’ve looked at what’s going on
nationally and want to be proactive
in determining the needs of KU stu-
dents,” Covington said. The Office
of Student Financial Aid posted a
financial literacy guide on its Web
site, www.
financialaid.ku.edu.
“Finances are a big reason that
students may drop out of school,”
Covington said. “There’s a lot of
data that suggests that students
have, looking back, admitted to
making mistakes with their money.
We just want to make sure that
students know what resources are
available to them.”

Americans are letting their
clothes do the talking this elec-
tion year.
Melissa Padgett, manager of
Third Planet, 846 Massachusetts
St., said she noticed the rising
demand for political T-shirts
when more people began asking
for and buying the shirts after
the 2004 election. Consequently,
Third Planet ordered its first
t-shirts supporting Sen. Barack
Obama (D-Ill.) after the primaries
at the beginning of 2008. The
store now sells five different lines
of Obama shirts and has another
on the way.
Padgett said Third Planet had
a hard time keeping its 36 lines
of different political shirts on the
shelf. She said that because cus-
tomers bought the shirts, which
sell at an average price of $19.95,
it made sense to stock them.
“We wouldn’t do it if they didn’t
sell,” Padgett said. “We put our
money where our mouth is.”
Aside from Third Planet, other
t-shirt distributors are also prof-
iting from this election season.
In 2004, Ryan Redcorn, a graph-
ic designer and 2004 graduate,
founded Demockratees, a T-shirt
design company. He said he made
$15 per week by selling his shirts
to Third Planet and worked from
a 500-square-foot apartment in
Clearview City.
He said he made $6,000 per
week from Demockratees. He said
he sold his T-shirts to national
community leaders from organiza-
tions such as The Native Vote and
he worked from a 3,000-square-
foot warehouse.
Blue Collar Press, one of
the first companies to produce
Redcorn’s designs, is also catering
to the demand for political cloth-
ing. The company just released 12
original political t-shirts. Hoping
to sell at least 100 shirts before the
election, Blue Collar Press had the
shirts available to customers the
first week of October.
For Sean Ingram, owner of Blue
Collar Press, the recent success of
the political t-shirt business is eas-
ily explained.
“Two things drive t-shirt sales:
when somebody’s excited about
something and when somebody’s
pissed off about something,”
Ingram said.
Ingram said despite how trendy
political T-shirts were, Blue Collar
Press couldn’t expect its new
T-shirt lines to bring in any sub-
stantial profit past Nov. 4, the day
of the presidential election.
A graph tracking weekly prod-
uct sales of political items on
Cafépress.com, another apparel
company, shows the sales fig-
ures for items supporting former
presidential candidates such as
Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-N.Y.) fell
dramatically after her campaign
ended. Ingram said he would
donate any election shirts left over
after Nov. 4 to Goodwill.
Looking past the election dead-
line, Third Planet is busy planning
for Jan. 20, the official end of the
Bush presidency. To say goodbye
to all of its anti-Bush apparel, the
store will hold a “Bush-Burning
Sale” from October to the inaugu-
ration date.
Unlike Third Planet or Blue
Collar Press, Demockratees is
not expecting the demand for its
political T-shirts to go down. In
fact, Redcorn said the company,
which breaks even, is on pace
to double its selling rate in the
next year, potentially making a
$6,000 profit. He said he separated
Demockratees shirts from simple
political T-shirts by making sure
his products highlighted diverse
issues reflective of his own ide-
ologies.
“A lot of the reason I’ve stayed
in business is that my ethics are
congruent with the messages on
the shirt. My business plan is con-
gruent with it, and the people who
are buying it are congruent with
the message,” Redcorn said.
Redcorn said screenprinting
gave normal people exposure
to complex issues that might be
under the radar. He said that his
shirts could act as a billboard that
raised awareness for a cause and
could express a personal opinion
or belief.

Faith-based pharmacy
refuses to sell birth control
CHANTILLY, Va. — A new drug
store at a Virginia strip mall is
putting its faith in an unconven-
tional business plan: No candy. No
sodas. And no birth control.
Divine Mercy Care Pharmacy
is among at least seven pharma-
cies across the nation that are
refusing as a matter of faith to sell
contraceptives of any kind, even if
a person has a prescription. States
across the country have been
wrestling with the issue of phar-
macists who refuse on religious
grounds to dispense birth control
or morning-after pills, and some
have enacted laws requiring drug
stores to fll the prescriptions.
In Virginia, though, pharma-
cists can turn away any prescrip-
tion for any reason.
“I am grateful to be able to prac-
tice,”pharmacy manager Robert
Semler said, “where my conscience
will never be violated and my faith
does not have to be checked at the
door each morning.”
Semler ran a similar pharmacy
before opening the new store,
which is not far from Dulles Inter-
national Airport. The store only
sells items that are health-related,
including vitamins, skin care
products and over-the-counter
medications.
On Tuesday, the pharmacy cel-
ebrated a blessing from Arlington
Bishop Paul S. Loverde.

It’s time for Kansas to look to wind, solar, and other renewables for its
energy needs. We also must step up our energy conservation efforts
and push for more recycling.
The switch to alternative forms of
energy presents a great economic
opportunity for all of us. Together
we can bring green jobs and a bright
future to Kansas.

DIFFICULT DIALOGUES:
RACE, EDUCATION & AMERICAN POLITICS
Charles Johnson’s lecture draws upon his recent essay, “The
End of the Black American Narrative,” in The American Scholar.
He is the author of four novels, including Middle Passage,
which won the 1990 National Book Award, the first African-
American to win this prize since Ralph Ellison in 1953. He was
a MacArthur fellow in 1998 and a 2002 recipient of an American
Academy of Arts and Letters Award for Literature.

An epidemic is striking the
University of Kansas.
The overcrowding of buses
and parking spots has run ram-
pant.
The Kansan reported last
month that the ridership of cam-
pus buses had doubled this year.
That makes about 12,000 riders
per day, or about 40 percent of
the total student population.
Parking has also
been a major issue. KU
Parking and Transit
oversells permits each
year, yet some students
somehow still feel it
necessary to drive to
class.
But there’s one solution to
both problems: Walk.
First off, it’ll help solve the
bus problem that arose when stu-
dents voted to do away with bus
passes. Buses are later than usual
and more packed than usual, and
it’s still somewhat nice outside.
And when winter comes, all
you need to do is buy some
warmer clothes and have a nice
enjoyable walk in the beautiful
snow. It builds character.
Secondly, it’ll free up some
parking spaces. Some students
actually have to drive to class
for legitimate reasons, like physi-
cal disabilities, not just because
they’re a little late and are too
lazy to walk for 20 minutes to
get to class.
Thirdly, it will help you be
healthier. Obesity is an epi-
demic in our country. In 2007,
the Centers for Disease Control
found 25 to 27 percent of Kansas’
population was obese. Walking is
one of the easiest ways of com-
bating obesity.
So suck it up and
walk to class. If you’re
worried about being
late, then leave a little
earlier. It is possible
to graduate from the
University without having set
foot on a bus or driving to class.
Get outside. Enjoy nature.
The University’s campus is one of
the most beautiful in the nation.
You can still have your iPod on.
Pretend you’re in a music video.
Walking will be much more
enjoyable than being packed like
a sardine into an overcrowded,
smelly bus or wasting time look-
ing for a parking space. And
you’ll be healthier for it.

I’m honestly surprised that more
people aren’t committing suicide
these days to get something accom-
plished.
I heard the story about Karthik
Rajaram, a California man who
killed his mother-in-law, his wife,
his three children and then him-
self. Many are speculating that the
financial crisis drove him to it. He
had an MBA but no job, and his
stocks were plummeting.
And then we have the story
of Addie Polk. Polk is an elderly
woman in Akron, Ohio, who shot
herself multiple times as the local
sheriff tried to escort her away from
her foreclosed property. She lived
through the ordeal, and officials at
Fannie Mae said they would forgive
the loan and allow her to keep her
house.
The reason these stories are
intriguing and garnering national
attention is because they strike at
the heart of our society.
Rajaram was a successful busi-
nessman who had lived in an exclu-
sive gated community. He was an
Indian immigrant who had lived
the American dream.
Addie Polk reminds us of our
grandmothers, a woman who had
lived in the same house for 38 years
and, seemingly, was taken advan-
tage of by a subprime lender. Both
had the same problem because they
couldn’t afford their mortgages and
both tried the same method to end
the problem.
What are we supposed to take
away from this? According to the
Centers for Disease Control, the
data from this summer showed
that the suicide rate in America
was 11.1 suicides for every 100,000
Americans.
In contrast, the suicide rate dur-
ing the Great Depression was 17
per 100,000 Americans.
Will we reach the levels that the
Great Depression gave us? I don’t
know.
But what I do know is that we
need to have more protection for
people who are being affected, from
the rich, successful Rajarams to the
poor, elderly Polks.
For starters, the government
should have immediately provided
assistance to help those who need-
ed it the most. Instead of bartering
about earmarks and the pork on the
taxpayers’ dimes, there should have
been communication about how to
protect the taxpayers.
We need better basic lending
practices. There should be com-
plete transparency, and the burden
should lie on the lenders.
Ultimately, they are giving the
money. Yes, people should know
that they should buy only within
their means, but the responsibility
lies on the lender to make sure their
customers have the ability to pay.
I hope I won’t have to read about
an increasing suicide rate in the
coming months. I hope the govern-
ment’s plan works. I hope people
get to keep their houses.
But hope just isn’t enough for
some people.

When most people think about
saving the environment, they think
about recycling, driving their car
less or, for the true activist, mak-
ing their Facebook carbon neutral
with some slew of fancy applica-
tions.
At the grocery store, these peo-
ple do their part to cut down on
petroleum use by bringing their
own reusable bags, often printed
with some sort of “green” slogan,
despite rarely actually being green
in color.
But when it comes to fuel use,
what kind of bag you use is less
important than what you’re put-
ting in it.
When you bite into a crisp
Washington apple, that apple is
covered in more than just wax to
give it that beautiful, glossy sheen
— it’s dripping in oil all the way
back to its state of origin.
That’s because that apple has
had to be shipped across the coun-
try — in a refrigerated truck, no
less — just so it could take up space
in grocery stores where other, gas-
saving local apples could be.
An apple a day may keep the
doctor away, but if it’s not local,
it’s definitely not shrinking your
carbon footprint.
As the United States approaches
winter, when it’s more difficult to
grow and harvest food, the envi-
ronmental cost of produce goes
way up as we start enjoying “fresh”
fruits from places such as Chile.
National and international
transport has become more effi-
cient, which means it’s easier than
ever to import specialty food items
and out-of-season produce from
across the globe. In addition, fuel
used for international freight trav-
eling by air or sea is tax-exempt,
which also cuts costs. So although
transport may be cheap, the envi-
ronmental price is high.
Fortunately, people such as
Will Allen, former pro basketball
player, now the CEO of Growing
Power and recent recipient of a
MacArthur Foundation genius
grant, are stepping up to the chal-
lenge.
To address the lack of local
produce in urban areas, Allen
has developed a system of verti-
cal indoor farming, which saves
space in areas where land is at a
premium. This practically elimi-
nates the environmental costs of
transportation by growing food
right in the neighborhoods that
will consume it.
Allen’s urban farm, located
in the center of Milwaukee, uses
a unique three-tiered system of
plant and fish farming, which saves
space, water and huge amounts of
fuel. It also cuts carbon emissions.
This system is what Allen hopes
will allow him to build “vertical
farm skyscrapers” in other cities in
the future.
As global trade becomes easier
and faster, food needs to stay local
and slower.
Within Lawrence, organizations
like the ECM and the campus gar-
den grow some of the produce to
sustain their projects. In addition,
several community gardens as well
as the local farmers market provide
the community with opportunities
to grow or buy local produce.
Although most of us aren’t
being handed $500,000 no-strings-
attached grants, we can still help
by buying locally grown and pro-
duced foods. You may have saved
some petroleum with your reus-
able shopping bag, but if it’s full
of imported produce, it’s just as
delusional as emblazoning a blue
bag with the phrase “I’m green.”

LOS ANGELES — Dozens of
burly, tattoo-covered members of
the Mongol motorcycle gang were
arrested Tuesday by federal agents
in six states following a three-year
investigation in which undercover
agents infiltrated the group.
At least 38 members of the
Southern California-based Mongol
Motorcycle Club were arrested
under a federal racketeering indict-
ment that included charges of mur-
der, attempted murder, assault, as
well as gun and drug violations,
said Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco,
Firearms and Explosives spokes-
man Mike Hoffman.
During some arrests, sharp-
shooters stood guard on surround-
ing rooftops as motorcycles were
lined up and confiscated.
“It’s going to be a large hit to
their organization. We are arrest-
ing many of their top members,”
Hoffman said.
Among those arrested were the
gang’s former national president,
Ruben Cavazos.
Federal and local agents had
110 federal arrest warrants and 160
search warrants that were being
served across Southern California
and in Nevada, Oregon, Colorado,
Washington and Ohio. The sweep,
dubbed Operation Black Rain, was
to continue throughout the day
Tuesday, agents said.
Hoffman said the Mongols had
been recruiting members of Los
Angeles street gangs to assist in
their operations.
The Mongols are primar-
ily Latino and formed because
the Hells Angels refused to allow
Hispanic members.
Four ATF agents infiltrated the
gang and were accepted as full
members, a difficult process that
requires winning the trust of the
gang’s top leaders over a period of
months, Hoffman said.
The agents were required to live
away from their families in homes
set up to make it look like they
lived a Mongols lifestyle, Hoffman
said. Four undercover women ATF
agents also were involved in the
operation, pretending to be biker
girlfriends and attending parties
with the agents; women are not
allowed to become full members
of the gang.
“If you go to a party all the
time and you don’t ever bring a
girl around, it’s kind of weird,”
Hoffman said. “Someone might get
suspicious.”
To be accepted in the gang, the
ATF agents had to run errands
and were subject to a background
check by private detectives.
Outside Cavazos’ home in West
Covina, about 18 miles east of Los
Angeles, a red, custom-modified
Harley-Davidson motorbike sat
outside. No occupants were home
but several police and ATF agents
were seen going through items in
the house.
Cavazos wrote a memoir titled
“Honor Few, Fear None: The Life
and Times of a Mongol,” published
by HarperCollins in June.
HarperCollins publicist Sarah
Burningham in New York City
said she only handled book-relat-
ed issues for Cavazos, but would
forward an e-mail from The
Associated Press requesting com-
ment.
At least 22 motorcycles were on
display outside the Los Angeles
Police Department’s main building
Tuesday morning. All were modi-
fied, chrome-covered Harleys with
custom artwork. One had a fiber-
glass skull on the clutch, anoth-
er’s kick stand had been modified
to make it look like bird talons.
Several bore Mongols insignia.
Las Vegas police reported serv-
ing several warrants at homes in
southern Nevada, where five men
were in federal custody pending an
appearance before a federal magis-
trate, said Natalie Collins, spokes-
woman for the U.S. attorney’s Las
Vegas office.

WICHITA — The chairman
and chief executive officer of
Hawker Beechcraft Corp. warned
its employees that it must take
unspecified actions to ensure that
the company is prepared for a
“very challenging period” amid
the turmoil in global financial
markets.
In a letter to workers, CEO
James Schuster said that Hawker
Beechcraft was a highly leveraged
company that carried nearly $2.4
billion in debt. He noted that its
interest expense this year would
be close to $190 million, equiva-
lent to more than $500,000 a day.
“The best way to think about it
in my mind is that we must plan
for the worst and be positioned
for the best,” Schuster wrote. “This
includes addressing the uncertain-
ty, challenges and opportunities
ahead. In doing so, we ensure the
long term success of this wonder-
ful company.”
Schuster said employees would
be advised during the coming
weeks of “necessary actions,”
although he did not specify what
they might be.
Hawker Beechcraft spokesman
Andrew Broom confirmed the let-
ter was mailed to employees last
week but declined to comment
Tuesday on whether it meant lay-
offs were imminent.
“It was just talking about what
is going on in these economic
times — that we are planning for
everything,” Broom said.
Union officials had not yet
talked to the company, Machinists
spokesman Bob Wood said.
Hawker Beechcraft employs
more than 9,000 people world-
wide. About 7,000 work at the
company’s Wichita plant.
Schuster wrote that the com-
pany’s debt burden required it to
be exceptionally diligent in the
management of its business.
That means, he said, that it
is more important than ever to
focus on fundamentals: delivering
aircraft on time and on budget;
improving quality and reducing
warranty cost; completing prod-
uct development programs on
schedule; improving productivity;
and providing customer support.

Three days after the Kansas defense
had one of the worst statistical days in the
history of the school, players met with the
media on Tuesday to try to explain what
happened.
As safety Justin Thornton said, “It was a
little bit of everything.”
The KU defense allowed 468 passing
yards to Sam Bradford and the Oklahoma
offense, the third-most passing yards
allowed by a Kansas defense in the
118-year history of the program. The run
defense didn’t do much better, allowing
more than 200 yards rushing for the first
time in 34 games. The 674 total yards were
the fifth most allowed in the school’s 1,169
game history.
“I was embarrassed,” Thornton said. “I
feel like we’re a good defense and I think
we’re better than what everybody’s seen.
They put yards up on us that they didn’t
even put up against less talented teams.”
Oklahoma ran 97 offensive plays, which
is more than any team
has run against Kansas
this year. Some defen-
sive players also were
forced to help the strug-
gling special teams by
joining those units as
well. The combination
was a tired group of
Jayhawks gasping for
air on the sidelines.
“I was more tired
than normal and I
couldn’t figure out why,” Thornton said.
“But then we were watching the film and I
realized we ran 60-something plays in the
first half, and that’s on average what we
run for a whole game. So we pretty much
played a whole game’s worth of snaps in
one half. That takes a toll on you.”
In addition to allowing Oklahoma
receivers to make wide-open catches, the
KU defense struggled
with their tackling.
Several OU plays
could have gone for
short gains, but missed
tackles allowed them
to move the ball right
up the field.
One reason for the
poor tackling could
be because the team
rarely does any full-
contact drills once the
season begins. They will do some specific
tackling drills, but rarely will they wrap up
players and force them to the ground.
“We didn’t tackle very well,” Thornton
said. “We had a lot of missed tackles. That
is one thing that the coaches and all of the
players will be focused on this week in
practice is just being more physical and
getting guys to the ground.”
”We had been pretty good at it until this
past week,” said coach Mark Mangino.
The vibe among players discussing the
defensive problems was that the prob-
lems were surprisingly small and cor-
rectable. That’s good news for KU fans,
because Saturday’s opponent, Texas Tech,
is one of the top passing teams in the
nation and runs a spread offense similar
to Oklahoma’s.
Thornton and the defense promised
not to let another game like Oklahoma
happen again.
“We’re out to make a statement,”
Thornton said. “We’re going to come out,
play hard and rebound from this.”

Junior safety Justin Thornton gets tripped up on a cut by Oklahoma wide receiver Juaquin Iglesias during Saturday’s game. The Sooners rushed for a total 674 yards, which is the ffth-most allowed yards in Kansas’ 1,169-game his-
tory. Kansas’ defensive recovery will be important when the Jayhawks face Texas Tech’s ofense, which ranks second in the nation.
kansas reevaluates game plan after oU
A
ll too frequently, our genera-
tion has been criticized as apa-
thetic, unproductive and just
generally lazy.
Now is our time to step up and
destroy that perception. We have an
opportunity to institute a real change
in the world, to shine a light where
there was once darkness, to silence the
critics.
An election is our opportunity for
this generation’s recovery. All we have
to do is make the choice no one else
can.
Not between a maverick and a mes-
siah, mind you. That little election in
November pales in comparison to the
Kick the Chant Campaign.
The environment? I’m going to be
around for another 80 years, tops. All
those icebergs have to last at least that
long, don’t they?
The economy? As long as my check
from The Underground clears, I’ll be
OK.
Joe the Plumber? If I hear any more
about him, I may rip my own fucking
head off.
The truth is that the decision as to
what the new kickoff chant will be is
the most important one you will ever
make. It dwarfs such trivial matters
as who will lead the free world for the
next four years.
So, let’s meet the candidates.
First up is “Rock Chalk Jayhawk
KU!” Truly, this is a candidate for the
right-leaning traditionalists out there.
Although this chant is strong with the
base, it remains to be seen whether
this candidate can bridge party lines
and appeal to the more progressive
Jayhawks.
If that choice seems just two letters
too long, then “Rock Chalk Jayhawk!”
should to be your selection.
Still, there are those who think
the University should look elsewhere
for solutions. Multilateralists might
favor the Notre Dame-inspired “Go...
Jayhawks!” Although this appeal to one
of college football’s superpowers may
seem like a valid means of solidifying
Kansas’ place on the national scene,
some say that such a decision is just too
derivative.
The next choice, “Make ‘em Weep!”
stands as a testimony to KU’s fight
song. Unfortunately, sensitive parents
are already lining up to criticize the
student body for this potentially trau-
matic choice. Still, this candidate has
a lot of experience, making it a strong
contender.
“Right Between the Eyes!” is a sug-
gestion inspired by Kansas alumnus
Kevin Harlan that could face similar
problems. For a member of the KU
coverage team to actually carry out
the spoken intent of this chant, they’d
have to break several NCAA rules.
It’s also likely that reaching inside an
opponent’s face mask could result in
a substantial rise in broken fingers on
the team. Some have also noted that, by
no fault of his own, Harlan’s sounding
vaguely like sportscaster Marv Albert
could give an entirely new (and woe-
fully disturbing) twist to this chant’s
meaning.
Don’t like any of these choices?
There’s a second poll with suggestions
from students. Online voting ends at
5 p.m. today.
That provides yet another reason
why this vote is better than the one to
decide the president. People complain
about the lack of a legitimate third
party in the United States’ political
system, but no such biases appear here.
There are already five choices, not to
mention the other six suggested by
commentary

They talk about last season’s historic
run to the championship, but only half
the players on Kansas’ roster this season
were even part of it.
They reflect on the national champion-
ship game against Memphis, but only two
current Jayhawks played in the game.
Defending national champions, the
Jayhawks are. Same team, they are not.
“There’s going to be a lot pressure
coming from winning the national cham-
pionship,” freshman guard Travis Releford
said. “We just want to be able to come
out every game knowing that we are the
defending national champions.”
It might be tough to tell, however,
by looking at the roster. Sophomores
Cole Aldrich and Tyrel Reed and junior
Sherron Collins are the only scholarship
players left on the roster who played last
season.
The five starters are gone. Eight of
the top ten players in minutes — the two
remaining are Collins and Aldrich —
either graduated or declared for the NBA
Draft. So where do the Jayhawks go from
here? Kansas coach Bill Self hauled in a
class of seven recruits that Rivals.com
ranked as the second-best in the country.
Most of them will contribute right away.
“I don’t know what the ceiling is, but
I can tell you this: Expectations will not
change one bit, regardless of how young
we are,” Self said.
Defending national champions return-
ing without the bulk of their roster
is nothing new. In fact, it’s common.
Florida, which won back-to-back nation-
al championships in 2006 and 2007, lost
its top six players going into last season.

and missed the NCAA Tournament.

Freshman point guard Angel Goodrich
will have to wait one more season before
she can play for Kansas. The true fresh-
man tore her ACL during Sunday’s prac-
tice and will be out for the entire season.
Coach Bonnie Henrickson solemnly
addressed the media Monday, informing
them of the injury.
“At media day, I said I wouldn’t hide
my excitement for what I thought she
could do for our program, and I’m not
going to try to hide my disappointment
for her, personally,” Henrickson said.
Henrickson said the injury happened
one hour into the team’s second prac-
tice Sunday afternoon. After executing
a crossover dribble, Goodrich landed
wrong on her left leg and went down.
Goodrich’s six-month recovery period
will begin with surgery, which will take
place next Wednesday.
Goodrich was a top prospect from
the class of 2008 and most likely would
have seen substantial playing time this
season. During her senior year of high
school, Goodrich averaged 14 points, six
assists, five steals and four rebounds per

T
his isn’t a eulogy for
Kansas’ 2008-09 season.
Rather, it’s the last respects
for the preseason excitement that
was budding around Bonnie ball.
We hardly knew ye.
As a disappointing season came
to its disappointing end in the
NIT, I heard the prophecy that
an Angel was coming to save the
Jayhawks.
Angel Goodrich, a 5-foot-4
fireball out of Tahlequah, Okla.,
signed with Kansas as the No. 9
point guard in the country, accord-
ing to ESPN/Hoopgurls.com.
She was going to be a lightning
rod for the Jayhawk offense — the
piece of the puzzle coach Bonnie
Henrickson so desperately needed.
Goodrich was going to be a
mash-up of Kansas’ current point
guards, combining LaChelda
Jacobs’ athleticism with Ivana
Catic’s floor leadership. She flashed
some of that potential at Late
Night in the Phog, scoring four
points and dishing a sweet assist
to Danielle McCray for a crucial
three-pointer.
However, my stomach turned
with one text message early
Tuesday morning. Three hours
later Henrickson confirmed the
grim news at an impromptu press
conference.
“Having been excited about
Late Night for about 48 hours,
one hour into practice Sunday,
Angel Goodrich tore her ACL,”
Henrickson said.
For the second time in less than
a year, Henrickson lost a promis-
ing freshman point guard to an
unpredictable practice injury.
On Feb. 5, freshman Chakeitha
Weldon jump-stopped to avoid
a teammate and then fell to the
ground in intense pain.
Weldon decided in September
to continue her basketball rehab
closer to home, transferring to
Appalachian State. Angel’s pres-
ence on the team eased the loss.
At Sunday’s practice, Kansas’
third of the season, Goodrich
crossed over to her left hand and
made the jump-stop that will
haunt her for six months of rehab.
Weldon tore her right anterior
cruciate ligament; Goodrich tore
her left. Neither player made any
contact with a teammate during
her injury.
It’s a devastating loss for a
team that hasn’t played a game,
and even more so for one that
went through the same thing last
season. Henrickson was visibly
distraught Tuesday.
“At media day I said I wouldn’t
hide my excitement for what I
thought she could do for our pro-
gram, and I’m not going to try to
hide my disappointment for her,”
Henrickson said. “For her and her
family, that’s just not a very fun
part of this profession.”
Goodrich isn’t alone in her
pain. She’s the third Big 12 player
to tear an ACL this preseason, and
Weldon is just a phone call away
if Goodrich wants a comrade-in-
knees to talk to.
It’s a long road back to the
court and it officially begins with
surgery next week. Goodrich will
go under the knife in Lawrence,
but before she does, she must
strengthen herself as fast as pos-
sible to make the first few weeks of
recovery easier.
“She’ll start some rehab today,”
Henrickson said. “Prehab, they
call it.”
That means prehabilitation in
the preseason and a long regular
season of rehabilitation.
I have no doubt that the feisty
little guard will work her way out
of this rut, but I don’t know that
this year’s team will do the same.

Angel falls; team picks up pieces

aSSoCIateD PreSS
SANTA CLARA, Calif. — Mike
Singletary replaced his coaching
mentor Tuesday with a vow to
build on what Mike Nolan started
with the San Francisco 49ers.
Singletary acknowledged
mixed feelings when the 49ers
asked him to be the interim suc-
cessor to Nolan, the dapper coach
whose teams never played as well
as he dressed. Nolan was fired
Monday night after seven games
in his fourth consecutive dismal
season.
Singletary, the former linebacker
who made the Hall of Fame during
his stellar career with the Chicago
Bears, praised Nolan’s work in
raising the 49ers to a measure of
respectability after they arrived in
town nearly four years ago to take
over the NFL’s worst team. After
accepting the job with Nolan’s bless-
ing, Singletary said he thought San
Francisco could improve quickly.
“Right now, the guys realize
that we do have something here,”
Singletary said. “To what degree, I
don’t know, but we do have some-
thing special here. It’s a matter of
stepping in and being able to bring
it together, and that’s something
I’ve done all my life.”
After four straight losses cul-
minating in Sunday’s 29-17 defeat
to the New York Giants, the 49ers
didn’t even wait until their bye next
week before replacing Nolan with
Singletary, who has been Nolan’s
right-hand man since he entered
coaching in 2003. Singletary also
will be a candidate for the perma-
nent job after the season, general
manager Scot McCloughan said.
“I don’t think there’s one right
time for a decision like this,”
McCloughan said Tuesday. “If you
go off past experience and talking
to people, the bye week is usu-
ally the best for this, but I think
with the distractions on the out-
side, the most important thing this
week is for us to be ready for the
Seahawks.”
The 49ers also fired offensive
line coach George Warhop, one
of Nolan’s original assistants. San
Francisco has yielded a league-high
29 sacks this season.
Nolan restored competence to
a franchise that finished with the
NFL’s worst record in 2004, but he
has the lowest winning percentage
(.327) among any San Francisco
coaches who made it through more
than one season with the team. He
barely avoided dismissal after fin-
ishing 5-11 last season, but couldn’t
even make it to midseason this fall.
Instead of logically delaying a
decision on Nolan’s fate until the
bye following Sunday’s home game
against Seattle, McCloughan and
owners John and Jed York suddenly
couldn’t wait another day to get
rid of the family’s choice to fix the
49ers, who have endured five con-
secutive losing seasons and haven’t
made the playoffs since 2002.

tbern@kansan.com
A hard-hitting safety for Kansas
in the early-90s, defensive coordi-
nator Clint Bowen said he couldn’t
play defensive back in today’s
spread-heavy Big 12.
“I’d have to be a linebacker,”
Bowen said. “I can’t cover these
fast guys.”
The Jayhawks’ leader with 114
tackles in 1993, Bowen said today’s
Big 12 scarcely resembled his days
in the Big 8.
The power and
isolation runs
that dominated
that league have
given way to a
full-court spread
attack on nearly
every campus.
Bowen doesn’t
have to worry
about suiting
up and learning
a new position,
but it is his job — and that of every
defensive coordinator in the con-
ference — to figure out how to stop
this offensive monster.
This season the results are build-
ing Heisman campaigns on offense
and leaving the defenses huffing
and puffing.
“I’ve talked to a couple of coor-
dinators at other schools,” Bowen
said. “If you look at the numbers
that these offenses in this confer-
ence are putting up, it’s kind of
making us not look so good on the
defensive side of the ball.”
Coach Mark Mangino agreed.
“Right now, with spread offens-
es, very few people are playing
what I would call great defense,”
he said.
Seven Big 12 offenses rank in
the top 25 in total offense — led
by Texas Tech at No. 2 — but none
of the defenses rank higher than
Oklahoma at No. 34. In fact, four
defensive units rank in the bottom
25 nationally. It’s not that defenses
haven’t made steps toward contain-
ing the spread, but Bowen said
those advances weren’t always easy
to spot.
Of course, sometimes a defense
makes all others jealous by oblit-
erating a high-powered spread
offense, as Texas’ did in its 56-31
victory against Missouri.
“Texas is such a special mon-
ster,” Bowen said. “They’ve got four
guys that no one can block, so
it’s unfair for
them.”
For teams
without a
beastly defen-
sive line,
s t o p p i n g
the spread
requires cre-
ative ways of
getting to the
quarterback.
Some may
say blitz-
ing Texas Tech is the answer, but
Bowen said the Red Raiders could
handle the pressure.
“They’ve thrown the ball 343
times this year, and Graham
Harrell’s been sacked one time,
when their guard fell over,” he said.
“It’s not as easy to get to him as
people think.”
Last week against Texas Tech,
Texas A&M tried rushing three
linemen and put the rest back into
coverage. Kansas’ coaching staff
put a stopwatch on the Aggie pass
rush, and sometimes Harrell stood
in the pocket for up to 14 seconds
before firing a pass.
Even if a secondary had all 11
players trying to play coverage, it
probably couldn’t keep a receiver
from getting open for 14 seconds,
especially if that receiver was
Texas Tech sophomore Michael
Crabtree.
Crabtree won the Biletnikoff
Award as the nation’s top receiver
last year, and in 2008 he has 103.4
yards per game and 12 touch-
downs.
Bowen said Crabtree was so
effective because he could run
sandlot routes, which means he
breaks off his original route when
it’s covered and finds open space
for Harrell to throw to him.
Harrell and Crabtree have
hooked up for more touchdowns
in the past year and a half than any
other quarterback-wide receiver
combo.
On top of the duo’s apparent
psychic ability to read each other’s
mind, Texas Tech’s offensive line
scheme plays a huge role in the
passing attack.
Each lineman lines up almost
three yards apart from each other.
This creates more space for blitz-
es up the middle, but also makes
rushing the ends null and void.
“It really negates any edge pres-
sure,” Bowen said. “You run around
the ends, but just by the nature of
the distance the quarterback has
time to throw it.”
That zany lineup has forced many
coaches to concoct an equally zany
defense — such as A&M’s eight-
man secondary — but Texas Tech
counters that with slice-and-dice
runs. Mangino said it was easy for
a coach to get in his own way when
preparing for the Red Raiders.
“People that come up with these
new-fangled defenses and all kind
of different looks that they don’t
normally do, they get into more
trouble than the people who just
try to play the defense they’ve been
playing all year,” Mangino said. “I
think it’s a recipe for disaster.”
Junior Darrell Stuckey is a hard-
hitting safety and the leader of
Kansas’ secondary. Stuckey has the
athleticism to keep up with the
spread because he played running
back and wide receiver in a spread
offense in high school.
Stuckey’s had plenty of experi-
ence on both sides of the ball in
football’s flavor-of-the-decade and
he said it will last only as long as
the defenses allow it to.
“In the past you always hear
about the power-I, or how are you
going to stop this running back,”
Stuckey said. “Now it’s the spread.
It’s going to keep evolving and the
game’s going to keep changing. The
question is always going to be there
— it’s just going to change.”

Coaches puzzled about how to stop Texas Tech ofense
“They’ve thrown the ball 343
times this year, and Graham
Harrell’s been sacked one time,
when their guard fell over.”

The Parking & Transit office of the University of
Kansas solicits public comment on the following matter
regarding the Park & Ride Express. Due to overcrowded
buses leaving the main campus en route to the Park & Ride
Lot, the Transit Commission is proposing to eliminate the
outbound stop at the intersection of Irving Hill Road and
Engel Road between the hours of 6:30 am and 5:00 p.m. on
days when classes are in session. This change will reduce
passenger overcrowding by forcing passengers, whose
destination is one of the Daisy Hill residence halls, to use the
Campus Express Route 21. Park & Ride Express buses will
stop at the intersection of Irving Hill and Engel Roads after
5:00 pm on class days and on days when classes are not in
session but service is provided.
Comment from the public will be taken at a meeting
scheduled for October 30, 2008, between the hours of 4:30
and 6:00 pm in The Regionalist Room on the fifth floor of the
Kansas Union on the campus of the University of Kansas.
Comments can be e-mailed to kupark@ku.edu or mailed to
Parking & Transit Public Comment, 1501 Irving Hill Road,

students. Ron Paul kids, crusty
Ralph Nader devotees, here is your
chance to vote for a fifth-party
candidate. Just think how cool
and counterculture that will make
you feel.
And no matter which selection
you make, you will be voting to
replace a controversial incumbent
that is hated at home and abroad
and is primarily supported by
a vocal (and frequently drunk)
demographic. Hm, that’s nothing
like this presidential election.
Our generation has been given
a bad name. It’s time to change
that perception and show every-
one that we’re not just crazy kids
with backward hats and hippity-
hop music.
The so-called Greatest
Generation had to face the Great
Depression and a world war. Until
now, our generation had no com-
parable challenges to face down.
No longer.
The challenge of our age has
appeared, and we must defeat it.
Apathy is no longer an option —
not when the reputation of our
saintly University athletics pro-
gram is on the line.
It’s time to get angry and
get active. After all, who needs
“change you can believe in” when
we’ve got change you can sarcasti-
cally belittle?

that to happen. Aldrich said the
Jayhawks were confident they’d get
back to an elite level, although
it might take a little longer than
usual.
“We all know we’re going to
be good,” Aldrich said. “It might
take a little while to get there
because we have such a young
team and don’t know how to play
with each other yet. It’s all going
to come.”
Perhaps a better comparison
than last season’s Florida team for
Kansas would be the 2005 North
Carolina Tar Heels. North Carolina
returned only one of its top eight
players a year after winning the
national championship.
The Tar Heels, however, reload-
ed with a recruiting class ranked as
the best in the country.
They still made the NCAA
Tournament as a three seed before
being upset by
George Mason,
who eventu-
ally made the
Final Four,
in the second
round.
T h e
Jayhawks think
they have
enough talent
to be a force
by the end of
the season. Self
said the goal, as always, was to win
the Big 12 Conference this season.
He’ll worry about everything else
after that.
“I’ve thought a lot about last
year and why last year was so
special and
how we can
put ourselves
in a position
to duplicate
that in the
near future,”
Self said. “It’s
going to be
very, very dif-
ficult, but it
is for every-
body.”

The news of
Goodrich’s inju-
ry came when
the excitement
from Friday’s
Late Night in
the Phog cel-
ebration was
still lingering.
In the women’s
s c r i mma g e ,
Goodrich had two points and four
assists for the red team, showcas-
ing her ability to compete at the
collegiate level.
Henrickson stressed that
although Goodrich’s injury is
unfortunate,
the Jayhawks
will still be a
solid team with
four returning
starters.
“We’re dis-
appointed for
her, but we’ve
got returning
players who
are experi-
enced,” she
said. “For
some, it’s a door that opens and for
others it’s having to be asked to do
a little bit more.”
Henrickson said that Goodrich’s
teammates were upset but that
she knew they would be able to
regroup.
“It didn’t take them long to say
‘We can get it done, and we’re con-
fident in each other,’” she said.
If the surgery and rehabilita-
tion are successful, Goodrich will
return as a redshirt freshman for
the 2009-10 season.
The Jayhawks will take the
court for the first time this season
on Nov. 2 against Fort Hays State
for an exhibition game. The regu-
lar season begins Nov. 14 when
Kansas plays Sacred Heart.

classifieds 5B wednesday, october 22, 2008
BY JOSH BOWE
jbowe@kansan.com
If there were a way Kansas could
take the Horesji Family Athletic
Center on the road with them for
every match, the season outlook
might look a little brighter.
“We’ve got off to slow starts,”
Bechard said of the team’s road woes.
“That’s pretty typical. I think teams
try to get comfortable on the road.”
Although their record won’t indi-
cate it (2-3 at home and 1-4 on the
road), the Jayhawks look like a differ-
ent team when they have played on
their home court.
The Jayhawks have looked com-
petitive against ranked conference
powers Texas and Kansas State, even
taking K-State to five sets. An impres-
sive five-set comeback against Iowa
State and a four-set slug match with
Oklahoma round out the home vic-
tories.
But Kansas is not out of the pic-
ture in the conference yet. Just one
match separates six teams. That’s why
Bechard is concerned about Baylor,
which Kansas plays tonight at 7.
“I think whichever team can win
on the road obviously is going to
separate themselves from the rest of
that group,” Bechard said.
Though Kansas has been compet-
itive against quality teams at home, it
has looked sloppy on the road against
lesser foes.
Kansas scrapped out an ugly vic-
tory against Texas Tech in four sets,
but lost to Colorado and Missouri,
two teams Kansas needed to beat to
stay ahead of the middle pack in the
conference. A victory against Baylor
will help propel Kansas toward a top-
five standing.
“There are a bunch of teams fight-
ing for top five and this is our way
to clamp it,” senior middle blocker
Natalie Uhart said.
Sophomore outside hitter Karina
Garlington said fixing the team’s road
problems had less to do with focus-
ing on the opponent and more with
focusing on Kansas.
“It’s really just KU’s side,”
Garlington said. “We just have to
play KU volleyball and start set one
strong.”
As for tonight’s opponent, Bechard
had nothing but positive things to say
about Baylor’s program, which, under
coach Jim Barnes, has improved vast-
ly this season. The Bears are fourth in
the conference with a 5-4 record, and
post an overall record of 13-6, which
is also fourth-best in the conference.
“Coach Barnes has done a great
job,” Bechard said. “Each year he’s
been putting more pieces together
and he’s got a team that fits what he
likes to do.”
Specifically Bechard mentioned
how well the team served and
blocked. The Bears are in the top two
in the conference in every defensive
category.
Baylor also leads the conference
in service aces, mainly because of its
setter, junior Taylor Barnes.
“They get a lot of instant points
that way,” Bechard said. “It’ll be quite
a challenge for us.”
It might be bad timing Kansas
to face a defense like Baylor’s. The
Jayhawks’ offense has been inconsis-
tent at best, with front row players
not all playing their best at the same
time.
Against Oklahoma on Saturday,
Kansas compiled 29 errors, approach-
ing its season-high, 31. One positive
was that the Jayhawks were able to
win a match when the offense was
not as fluid as they liked.
The Jayhawks have shown the
ability in past matches to grind it out,
and against Baylor, they might have
to do it again.
“We have to make smart shots.
Offensively, you’ve got to have a little
diversity,” Bechard said. “With that I
think you can keep them off balance
a little bit.”
Staying in tune with the game plan
could give Kansas its most impres-
sive road victory of the season and
certainly an NCAA Tournament
resume-booster.
“If everybody wins 60 to 70 per-
cent at home and can’t win on the
road, then we’re all going to be in
one big pack,” Bechard said. “So
Wednesday would be a great way to
get that started.”

keys to the game
Jayhawks looking for conference road victory tonight
Ryan McGeeney/KANSAN
Freshman outside hitter Allison Mayfeld jumps to attempt a block during Saturday’s victory
against Oklahoma at the Horejsi Family Athletics Center.
Strong start:
Hasn’t this been mentioned
before? Unfortunately until
Kansas fxes this problem, it
will continue to be an issue. It
is amplifed now that the Jay-
hawks are playing on the road
against one of the premier
defenses in the conference.
Ofensive balance: If Kansas
again relies on outside hitter
Karina Garlington for most
of the ofense, Baylor will
key in on her and force other
Jayhawks to contribute. If
nobody steps up, it could be a
long night.
Players to watch:
Kansas:
Jenna Kaiser: The sophomore
outside hitter needs to return
to the form she showed against
Texas A&M, when she recorded
18 kills. With Savannah Noyes
and Natalie Uhart playing well,
a strong showing from Kaiser
will bolster the ofense.
Baylor:
Anna Breyfogle: The junior
middle blocker is part of a
Baylor defense that leads
the conference in blocks

P
lenty of points went up on
scoreboards this weekend
both in decisive victories
and in nail-biters. Here’s what you
need to know about this weekend’s
NFL action.
Welcome to
mt. olympus
The Titans looked godly in
their rout of the Chiefs on Sunday.
Running back Chris Johnson
looked like the light-footed
messenger
Hermes,
and team-
mate LenDale
White looked
like Atlas,
supporting
the weight
of the team
on his strong
frame.
True story:
A friend in
my fantasy league, who shall
remain nameless, failed to start
either of these backs, who rushed
for a combined 317 yards and
four touchdowns.
Do not underestimate the
strength of Tennessee’s running
game. If the Titans can win next
Monday against the Colts, they
will also have a lock on the AFC
South division title.
Battering rams
Way to kick a team while its
down, St. Louis. The Rams de-
molished the decimated Cowboys
34-14 on Sunday, leaving Dallas to
look through that hole in the sta-
dium’s roof to ponder what things
are to come.
The problems keep piling up
for the Cowboys. The acquisition
of receiver Roy Williams was sup-
posed to ease the pain of the injury
problems, but Williams didn’t re-
cord a catch in his first game with
the Cowboys. And fellow wide re-
ceiver Terrell Owens continued to
struggle with only two catches for
31 yards. St. Louis running back
Steven Jackson helped pick apart
the Cowboys with 160 rushing
yards and three
touchdowns.
Dallas
quarterback
Brad Johnson
helped with
three intercep-
tions on the day.
The Cowboys
will be better
off as soon as
quarterback
Tony Romo can
return to the
field.
offensively
challenged?
Who would have thought two
of the least explosive offenses in
the NFL would put up a com-
bined 89 points this Sunday?
Nevertheless, that’s what happened
when Minnesota played Chicago
this weekend. Two of the best
defenses in the league failed to put
its best foot forward, allowing a
combined 766 offensive yards in
the game.
Chicago’s special teams and five
Minnesota turnovers turned out to
be the difference in the divisional
battle. Chicago is now in a tie for
the division lead, but Minnesota
quarterback Gus Frerotte proved
he could spark the pass offense.
And with star running back
Adrian Peterson to anchor the
ground game, don’t be surprised
if Minnesota challenges for the
divisional title.
Will the real
peyton manning
please stand up?
So far, the Indianapolis quarter-
back has been anything but con-
sistent. The Colts are now 3-3 and
are in bad shape going into a divi-
sional showdown with Tennessee
next Monday.
Manning threw for only 229
yards and had two interceptions
returned for touchdowns in the
game. The injury to running back
Joseph Addai has made the offense
almost one-dimensional, but
Manning will have to find a way to
spark the passing offense against a
very tough Tennessee defense — a
must-win game for the Colts.

Junior forward Shannon
McCabe paused to think of an
answer after a reporter posed
the question: When was the last
time you scored three goals in
one game?
“I’ve never scored three goals
in a game,” McCabe said. “Well,
maybe when I was 11.”
If McCabe’s three-goal perfor-
mance against Francis Marion
on Sunday truly was the first
time she’s accomplished the feat,
it couldn’t
have come
at a better
time. With
the Jayhawks
needing vic-
tories down
the stretch to
secure a post-
season birth,
and with the
offense need-
ing another
threat, McCabe produced.
The junior forward has scored
four goals in
her last two
games, giving
her six for the
season. And
McCabe’s per-
formance hasn’t
gone unno-
ticed: she was
named the Big
12 Offensive
Player of the
Week.
“I think the balls are just
bouncing my direction,” McCabe
said. “Throughout the games I’ve
taken shots that haven’t gone in
or crosses that nobody gets on,
but everything has just fit into
place.”
None of McCabe’s goals,
though, were as big as the one
she scored against Texas A&M
on Friday. Not only did it give
Kansas a 1-0 win against the
sixth-ranked Aggies — the high-
est-ranked team the Jayhawks
have ever beaten — but it also
kept Kansas’ postseason hopes
intact.
Entering the final five games
of the season, coach Mark
Francis and his players stressed
the importance of winning out.
Those games, the Jayhawks
insisted, represented a new sea-
son.
“By approaching it that way,
our destiny is really in our own
hands,” Francis said. “We don’t
have to rely on anybody. We just
looked at it as a separate season
because it’s a different entity.”
Though McCabe’s goal against
Texas A&M came in a low-
scoring contest,
her three against
Francis Marion
were just a small
portion of the
Jayhawks’ seven-
goal barrage.
The Jayhawks’
defeat of Francis Marion wasn’t
surprising, but that they did it
with such prolific goal scoring
was.
Kansas’ seven goals are a
school record
for a single
game and it
surpassed their
six-goal total
from the previ-
ous five games.
“ A f t e r
Friday’s game
it was nice to have a game like
this,” McCabe said. “Just work
the ball around and get our
rhythm back.”
McCabe scored the game’s
first two goals before team-
mates unloaded in the second
half. Freshman Emily Cressy and
junior Monica Dolinsky each
tacked on a goal, increasing their
team’s lead to seven for the sea-
son.
McCabe’s final goal came
after senior Jessica Bush laced
a shot that rebounded off
Francis Marion goalie Emily
Brandenburg.
McCabe topped off her day
with an assist to freshman
Kortney Clifton.
“All season, she’s done well,”
Bush said, “but the last few
games she’s really stepped it up.
She’s been executing for us, and
that’s what we’ve needed.”
