A matter of
Speaking their Language
See Interpreter on pAge 6A
By Elliot Kort
Kim Bates takes her seat at the
front of the Green Hall auditori-
um. Scanning the room, she locks
eyes with second-year law student
Ryan Schwarzenberger. When
Dennis Prater starts his evidence
lecture, Kims hands glide up and down to
convert what comes out of Praters mouth
into a silent sequence of symbolic gestures
that most can identify if not under-
stand as sign language.
She translates his emphatic, gravelly
voice, signing so forcefully that when her
hands connect they can be heard from
across the room.
For every word Prater, Connell Teaching
Professor of Law, says, Bates reacts. If
students ask a question, she immediately
pivots in her seat, turning toward the pro-
fessor as if asking it herself. Her face
framed by her bob of auburn hair rises
and falls with the rhythm of speech.
Although the other 25 students are
focused on the professor, Ryan is com-
pletely engrossed in the movement of her
hands. For him, Kim is a lifeline, the only
person in the room capable of translat-
ing the days lesson into terms he can
Kim is a sign language interpreter, the
Universitys interpreter coordinator, and
one of only a handful of signers deaf KU
students can rely on to make the world of
academic sounds accessible to them. Shes
had to become an expert in near count-
less subjects in order to provide accurate
interpretation for her students.
And because the number of interpret-
ers is small, Kims work extends beyond
campus. Shes delivered bad news in emer-
gency rooms, interpreted for former pres-
ident Bill Clinton when he came to KU in
May of 2004, and interpreted at funerals

in drama classes to go beyond mere words

Dorm suspect
turns himself in
By Elliot MEtZ
Samuel Lennell Moore, a
suspect in Friday afternoons
investigation at McCollum Hall,
turned himself in to KU police
Sunday afternoon. Moore, 20, of
Kansas City, Kan., turned him-
self in after University Relations
released his name.
KU spokesperson Jill Jess said
Moore, who is not a KU stu-
dent, was being held on one
new charge
of criminal
trespass, as
well as three
out s t a nd -
ing warrants
for failure
to appear
in court.
His previ-
ous charges
include theft and criminal tres-
The original description of
the suspect on Friday was incor-
rect, Jess said in a news release
Saturday. Police said the false
description had been invented
by a couple involved in a domes-
tic dispute that resulted in the
gun threat.
Police responded to a call
from McCollum Hall at 1:55 p.m.
Friday after a student reported
hearing a man and woman argu-
ing in an adjacent room and the
man yelling Wheres my gun?
Wheres my gun?
Police questioned the woman
in the room where the incident
occurred. The woman provided
a false statement that an armed
man had attacked her. She also
gave a false description of the
man, police said.
Moore, who was actually the
man involved in the reported
argument, told police he had
been visiting a friend and inter-
vened to protect the woman.
According to police, he also pro-
vided a false description of the
attacker, Moore was the first to
tell police he had seen a gun.
University officials said in
a press release that KU police
would present a report to the
Douglas County District
Attorneys office for possible
prosecution. The woman, a KU
student, will face student hous-
ing and non-academic miscon-
duct disciplinary hearings.
Elsa Pageler, a freshman from
Lenexa, said she heard the dis-
turbance in the room next to
hers, where a couple was arguing
about money. She heard a male
asking where his gun was. She
said she was worried so she went
downstairs and told a resident
assistant, who called the police.
Pageler said she was surprised
by the police and University
response, which she thought was
Theyve been dating for
awhile, she said. I dont think
he would have actually shot his
girlfriend. I think he probably
wanted it to be intimidating.
No shots were fired and no
injuries occurred.
Officers with the KU Office
of Public Safety, the Lawrence
Police Department and Kansas
State Troopers were all on scene
on Daisy Hill. About 100 peo-
ple stood in the lawn near the
dorms parking lot. Police and
emergency workers set a medical
staging area near the Lied Center
in case of injuries. They com-
pleted a room by room search
of McCollum Hall looking for
the man. KU Police kept the
University community informed
with campus-wide alerts sent
over KUs public address sys-

released any additional informa-
tion about the case. Check back

KJHK to move from
Shack this week
The University radio station
KJHK is moving from The Shack,
located at 1132 W. 11th St., to its
new studio on the third foor of
the Kansas Union this Thursday.
In preparation for the move, KJHK
is sponsoring diferent events to
The studio will feature new
equipment, which Pat Strathman,
a freshman from Seneca and a
member of KJHKs sports staf, said
is a core reason for the move.
The whole place is breaking
down and the equipment is really
old,Strathman said of the current
studio. Its a fresh start to be
somewhere else.
Strathman said he thought the
move would attract more students
to KJHK and possibly result in
more listeners.
Youre supposed to be able to
walk by and wave at people as
theyre on the air,he said.
The new studio has been under
construction since Feb. 2008.

3,000 pound steer
sold for $1,670
RAmSAY, mont. A nearly
3,000 pound Hereford steer
that kept the herd in line on a
southwestern montana cattle
ranch for nearly a decade has
been sold for $1,670 at auc-
tion. owner and breeder Bill
mcIntosh of Avon watched the
bidding Tuesday at the montana
Livestock Auction in Ramsay,
saying he hates to see him go,
but hes got to be practical.
The cattle market is about
as high as were apt to see it, I
think, and fnally I can get a little
bit of the feed bill back, mcIn-
tosh said, noting that cletus ate
about 90 pounds of hay per day
during the winter.
The 10-year-old steer, named
cletus, was sold to a minnesota
buyer and sent to slaughter.
cletus was the largest steer
mcIntosh has ever seen and the
heaviest to come through the
auction yard in memory, said
feld representative dick Perkins.
When cletus entered the auc-
tion ring, the crowd whistled
and gasped.
mcIntosh said he was a bit
disappointed that the steer
fell 50 pounds short of the
3,000-pound mark. cletus
weighed 3,100 pounds last year.
I guess he wintered a little
rough, mcIntosh said.

Remote control models drive future thinking
Gas gulping, all-American mus-
cle cars paved the road for power
and speed more than 50 years ago,
but now the sound of motors rev-
ving causes the environmentally
conscious people to shutter. With
natural resources diminishing
and a green movement spreading
through the nation, cars of the
future are slowly starting to roll in.
Popping open the hood of the car
industry, students in a senior design
class in the mechanical engineering
department is researching, testing
and solar powering their way into
the car market of the future.
Beginning in August, six groups
of KU engineering students have
crafted six sustainable remote con-
trol cars, which are one-eighth the
size of a regular vehicle. These
23-inch engineering projects mean
more than a grade; they could
change the way Americans cruise
the highway. From hydrogen fuel
cells to electric motors, the 32 engi-
neering students, or the EcoHawks,
know the market, understand
the cost and see the green future
I dont think anyone can really
predict what the car of the future
is going to be, but I think that
some aspect of technology in each
of the cars that has been built will
be in the car of the future, said
Chris Depcik, assistant professor
of mechanical engineering. I said
this is what I want you to do, and
then I let them go about it in their
own way.
Once given the task, each
team set out on a different road.
The teams AMP, CellMates,
Cranofran, Electric Slide, Redline
and Slayer have specific people
on their team devoted to tuning a
part of their car.
Its good to get a background in
sustainable technology, said Bryan
Strecker, a senior from Topeka on
the Electric Slide team. I might
not be working with cars, but I
would like to do something with
The body cuts through the air,
the engine runs off the sun, the
frame protects the spinning gears
and the suspension smooths the
ride. But if, as the song says, Life
is a Highway, these students want
to make sure their cars leave the
fewest carbon tread marks.
This is the first time the class has
Song: Little Deuce Coupe
Goal: Create an all electric, plug in luxury sedan
Created by:
Jessica Lamb, Kyle Combes, Amber Markey, Brian Paddock and

RC car cost: $877
Estimated full scale cost: $40,000 to $50,000
Top speed of RC car: 34 miles per hour
Modeled after: Audi A4
Distance range for RC car: 30 miles
Distance range for full-scale car: 300 miles
Charge lithium iron phosphate batteries on car: 20 minutes, nor-
mal batteries charge in one hour
Charge for full-scale car: two hours
Diference from the rest: Lightweight aluminum frame and ability
to plug into AC and DC power sources
If you had solar panels in the backyard, you could plug your car
directly into your solar panels, or if it is raining outside or say you are
at a super market and there is a wall outlet, in the future, you could
plug it in there,Lamb said.

Song: Slow Ride
Goal: Create a working hydrogen fuel cell car to replace current
Created by:
Chris Billinger, Miles Detrixhe, Sarah Gelvin, Brandon Hursh, Dave
McNally and Michael Powell
RC car cost: $1,300
Estimated full scale cost: $100,000 to $170,000
Modeled after: Toyota Prius
Top speed of RC car: 10 to 15 miles per hour
Its not speed we are worried about,Gelvin said.
Filling hydrogen fuel tank: 333 syringe pumps
Why taxis: The taxi would give them a market located in one area.
The cars also travel at lower speeds. There are limited hydrogen fuel
flling stations across the nation.
Problems: Filling the tank with enough hydrogen to run the car.
Its sustainable but not very efcient at this point,Billinger said.
Diference from the rest: The team is powering their car with hydro-
gen, unlike the electric motors fueled by solar.
Song: Fun, Fun, Fun
Goal: create purely electric mid-sized sedan utilizing solar power

had to make all our parts. So they were more just modifying.
Song: Little Red Corvette
Goal: ultimately high speed.
Created by:
Austin Hausmann, Andrew Bieger, Ben Engelbrecht, Robert Low and
Travis Schneweis
RC car cost: $1,700
Estimated full-scale cost: $100,000 to $150,000
Modeled after: Chevrolet Corvette C6 ZR1
Top speed of RC car: tested at 55 miles per hour, theoretically 103
miles per hour
It should go zero to 100 in a few seconds,Hausmann said.
Distance range for RC car: 25 miles
Experience with cars: This group had a lot of experience with cars,
trucks and boats before this project.
Problems: The team broke the speed control and blew a tire while
testing the car last week. They have ordered new steel belt tires for
future runs.
Diference from the rest: The team focused on creating a fast car at
the lowest price possible.
Song: Mud on the Tires

Morris and Thomas Prinsen
RC car cost: $1,200
Estimated full scale cost: $50,000 to $60,000
Modeled after: 2007 Chevy Silverado truck
Why a truck: The team decided to look at the industry facing the
most criticism for low fuel economy and efciency. The truck industry
is also the slowest to adapt hybrid technology.
Top speed of RC car: 43 miles per hour with single motor, 86 miles
per hour with both motors
RC car travel time: one hour at 55 miles per hour
Diference from the rest: The team is running a parallel-hybrid mo-
tor aboard their truck. It ofers the torque and power
the truck industry needs to sell but still keeps their
truck sustainable.

Te Spencer Museum of Art
Student Advisory Board hosted its
third annual Spring Arts and Cul-

Saturday. Artists from the Univer-
sity and the Lawrence community
paid $10 and $20, respectively, for
10 feet by 10 feet booths at the fes-
From 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., local
and student artists manned their
booths, ready to show of and
hopefully sell their creations to
the public.
On Sarah Taggarts table lay the
drawings, photographs, spray-
painted and splattered T-shirts
and screenprints, she had created
throughout the year all for $10
or less.
Taggart, a senior from Overland
Park, said her motivation for what
she creates varies. She pulled out
her sketched rendition of an iconic
piece of Grecian artwork.
With these I was kind of on this
art history tinge and I did a series
of the Statue of David, she said. I
took an image of the original statue
and would change it somehow.
Some of Taggarts most colorful
pieces used a technique known as
In order to make a lithograph,
Taggart said, she takes an image,
places a piece of glass over it and
then paints over the glass along the
outline of the image. She lays paper
over the painted glass and presses a
weight onto it to pick up the color.
I lif it up and do the next layer
of color and keep doing that until I
like what I see, Taggart said. You
can tell where the black and blues
Channing Taylor, a junior from
Wichita, began creating and sell-
ing her unique vintage style jew-
elry, which ranges from $30 to $60,
about three years ago.
Ive always loved antiques and
I dabbled in beading when I was
younger, Taylor said.
Taylor searches for all diferent
types of antique and vintage arti-
facts at fea markets, garage sales,
estate sales and antique hardware
stores. She uses old chains to create
layered necklaces and attaches the
antique pieces she fnds.
Taylor said she loved searching
for the vintage items she uses and
ofen fnds it difcult to part with
some of her creations.
Teyre all one of a kind but
sometimes there are some things
I fnd and I know Ill never see
anything like it again, Taylor said.
I probably need to sell it but I
just cant part with some of these
Although Emily Johnson is only
a junior at Lawrence High School,
she said she had been drawn to
creating art since she was much
But it wasnt until her frst year
of high school that her passion for
photography began, and she had
plenty to show for it on Saturday.
I was really good at shooting
portraits and then I branched out
doing things that are absent of
people, Johnson said. Tis year
my concentration is silent commu-
nications, the idea of what people
try to communicate with leaving
things behind.
Johnsons photo spread ranged
from smaller portraits to larger,
framed scenic stills.
Johnson said she gets inspiration
from everything around her.
I just shoot all the time, John-
son said. My camera is always with
me. Its in my car right now.
A series of her photos were dis-
played at La Prima Tazza, a cofee
shop downtown, a few months ago.
Next for Johnson is a summer pho-
tography program at Te Art Insti-
tute of Boston in July.
Madison Rheas collection of
paintings incorporates a wide range
of color with acrylic paint, wa-
tercolor and oil. Rhea, a 2009 KU
alumnus from Dallas, said his art
was the result of a recent interest
in Henri Matisse, a French painter
known for his use of color.
Rheas style is a combination of
still life and interiors, he said. He
usually paints on very large canvas
but decided to scale them down for
the festival. Te original pieces are
priced between $50 and $100.
Rhea said he used other paint-
ings as models for his work.
Some of them are compiled
from thoughts in my head and from
photographs of other paintings art-
ists have done, Rhea said.

for sponsorship. This helped them
back up their cars claims, optimize
designs for the average user and
pay for their cars, Depcik said.
Their research mirrors the current
car industry.
In the future, these cars could be
the next classics and have a song
with their name in the lyrics.
If Ford, GM or Chrysler came
out with a car that just blows every-
one away based on these differ-
ent technologies, then yes it will
become a classic, Depcik said.
But it has to be in mass produc-
tion, something everyone sees on
the road.
Neither the little electric Corvette
nor the parallel-hybrid Chevy driv-
ing to the levy have hit the charts
just yet, but the possibilities keep
inching their way to reality. The
remote control cars are on course,
enough so that AMPs group mem-
bers Jessica Lamb, a senior from
Prairie Village and Kyle Combes, a
senior from Overland Parksaid
they thought that they would sit
behind the wheel of an electric
vehicle like their own someday.
Hopefully the students who
have gone through this program
will see a car coming out in the
future and think, Man, I worked on
that 20 years ago at the University
of Kansas, Depcik said. To me
that would be really cool.

In a mix of fashion, dance
and food, the members of the
African Students Association at
KU had the chance to show the
community what being African
is all about.
The program was titled
Sisimuka Afrika, or Arise,
Africa in Luganda, a language
spoke in Uganda. Khanh Trinh,
a junior from Liberal and secre-
tary of ASA, said the show was
the groups biggest program of
the year. More than 100 people
attended the event.
Its important to be culturally
diverse, Trinh said. College is
a great opportunity to do that,
to see lots of other cultures and
understand them.
Cynthia Oben, a junior from
Cameroon and president of
ASA, served as the main coor-
dinator for the event. She said
it was important to educate and
empower the community with
knowledge of African culture,
especially to dispel stereotypes.
I really want to break the
stereotypes people have of the
African culture, Oben said. I
want them to realize that Africa
has modern city life, and a lot of
things like that.
Food from several regions of
Africa was also provided by the
ASA, as well as members of the
local community. Meron Herouy,
a junior from Ethiopia, said the
group spent around two days
cooking for the event.
Events like these are impor-
tant because they give everybody
a chance to get together, Herouy
said. In ASA, you have people
you can relate to, because you
understand a similar cause. Its
like home away from home.

He heard from advisers about
progress on lowering a device that
would capture oil fowing from the
underwater well of Louisiana, and
about shooting chemicals deep
near the well in hopes of breaking
up the oil before it can reach the

Robert Gibbs told reporters during
the fight from Washington.
Te leaking oil well is not only
an ecological catastrophe but a
potential political hazard, as well,
depending on how the public
judges the Obama administrations
response. Ten-President George
W. Bush stumbled in dealing with
Hurricane Katrina in the Gulf in
2005, leaving the impression of
a president distant from the im-
mense sufering. His presidency
never recovered.
A month ago, Obama said he
was ready to expand drilling in
some parts of the central and south
Atlantic and eastern Gulf areas. On
Friday, in a largely symbolic ges-
ture, Obama promised that no new
ofshore oil drilling leases will be
issued unless rigs have new safe-
guards to prevent a repeat of the
Gulf spill.

Such domes have been used in

Police spokesman Zach Friend
said an estimated 250 people

It was a peaceful but unpermit-

said, until some in the crowd start-

to communicate body language and mood.
Currently, five KU students have
deafness severe enough to require an interpreter (and
sometimes two) in each of their classes. As inter-
preter coordinator, Kim needs to be wherever her
students are: working in the classroom; interpreting
for University-wide events such as convocation and
commencement; running across a soccer field to
make sure Emily Cressy can understand her coaches
instructions. She even traveled to England on a study
abroad trip.
As coordinator, she schedules freelance interpret-
ers to be placed in classes around campus wherever
students need them. She works one-on-one with each
student to iron out the kinks of their respective sched-
ules and ensures students have supplementary support
such as note takers, real-time captioning of lectures,
and FM-transmissions that some can pick up with
their hearing aids. She also spends approximately 15
hours a week out in the classroom signing and inter-
preting herself. That much time in the classroom also
means that Kim has nearly free rein to audit whatever
classes the University has to offer.
Kim grew up the youngest of five sib-
lings in the rural community of Chapman,
where she was introduced to signing dur-
ing seventh grade, when a deaf student
named Jeremy transferred into her class. He
required the assistance of an interpreter, and
though she recalls her classmates welcoming
their new peer, they put forth little effort to
communicate directly with him.
Nobody was learning to sign; everyone was forc-
ing him to read lips, she said. Communication takes
effort on everybodys part.
The unfairness of this disparity sent Kim on the
journey that now defines her professional life.
To learn how to talk with her new classmate, Kim
befriended his interpreter, Kerry Bowell. Over time,
Bates grew close to Bowell and her entire family,
particularly her son David, who is deaf. Dave agreed
to work with Kim as she taught herself to sign. She
began slowly, learning to finger spell The Pledge of
Allegiance letter by letter. He would taunt her, start-
ing to sign it himself when she was halfway through
and still finish first, but hed also teach Kim her first
words in American Sign Language, often called ASL.
ASL contains its own systems of syntax and gram-
mar. These factors set it apart fromother styles of sign
language that mimic exact English in a physical way.
Kim and Dave sat together in the bleachers at
Chapman High basketball and football games and
practiced her signing. He gave Kim her ASL book.
While she studied signing, she also studied acting and
forensics, and now credits her time in the performing
arts for her skills emulating and imitating the speakers
she interprets every day. She tries to go beyond words
to convey inflections, visual representations of tone,
and even body language to connote overall mood.
When Kim graduated from high school, she set out
for Johnson County Community College to become
an interpreter.
Its time for a break in evidence class.
Kims been churning out signs for 15
minutes straight, translating strategies in
trial cross-examination and arcane legal
topics, including the nature of collateral
versus noncollateral evidence. Kimsigns
a wide variety of classes and has no way
of knowing what shell encounter upon entering any
given classroom.
During her eight years as the interpreter coordina-
tor and, before that, as a part-time interpreter for
the University Kim acquired precise knowledge
about nuanced subjects from anatomy to law and
stored it away for later use. Although her arms are in
a near-constant state of motion while translating, the
most trying facet of her job is the energy it takes to stay
focused on the steady stream of sometimes complex
information she must understand enough to commu-
nicate it in signs.
My brain gets tired a whole lot faster than my
hands do, she explains. I cannot zone out for a min-
ute and go, Oh yeah, I need to put drier sheets on my
grocery list. Because the second I do that, Ive lost a
huge chunk of information. If she daydreams, even
for a moment, the student misses the message.
Its not just the lecture that she could miss, but also
interactions between the professor and other students.
From class discussions to test review question-and-
answer sessions, an interpreter has to cover every
spoken word from the minute the class begins to the
moment everything concludes. Having the responsi-
bility to represent such highly specialized material is
often too much for one interpreter to handle.
The solution is to work with a partner translator, to
team. For evidence class, Kim is teaming with Heidi
Benham. Even when taking a backseat to another
interpreter, she stays just as focused as when she sits
solo, ever ready to feed a sign or consult on spelling if
her colleague blanks for a moment.
She jots down notes, concepts and names that
require new signs to be created on the spot. But even
as she does, shes alert for that key piece of information
that might come along at any moment. Interpreters
are probably the most attentive people in the room,
Kim said.
After class, she approaches Prater to make sure she
understands the concept of collateral versus noncol-
lateral evidence, verify definitions, and ask how best
to articulate those concepts to Ryan.
There have been occasions when she will ask me
questions after class that are as astute, if not more so,
than the students Im teaching, Prater said of Kim.
Prater said he enjoys these moments when the two
debrief after class because he views her as a partner in
teaching. His job, he explained, is to take the some-
times complicated language of the law and put it into
terms that anyone can understand. To Prater, theyre
both interpreters.
And often, even when shes interacting with those
who can hear, Kim will absentmindedly sign words as
she speaks them. She talks with her hands even when
shes not working.
Heidi Benham, Kims partner that
day, exemplifies another face of
interpreting, one of a group of
freelancers who float from one
place to another as needed, con-
necting people in a silent world to the world of sound.
Heidi has worked nearly everywhere, from delivery
rooms to boardrooms, law offices to jails. Becoming a
party to someones intimate personal information can
lead to attachment, though, and she tries to remind
herself that her job is simply to be a conduit of informa-
tion. She is the invisible relay point between point A
and point B, no matter the topic of discussion.
It just goes through you and not into you, Heidi
Sometimes, however, the work can shake her up.
Heidi recalls being brought in to interpret for a deaf
woman undergoing surgery. Midway through, the sur-
geon asked her to tell the patient about a complication
that had surfaced. The prognosis was fairly bleak. And
so she said, AmI going to die? Heidi wanted to com-
fort her, to respond in a positive and upbeat way. But all
she could do was repeat what the surgeon answered.
And though she works full time at the University,
Kim often finds herself freelancing as a means of
remaining connected with the deaf community. The
work can sometimes catch her off guard.
You never know what youre going to get when you
walk into a medical situation, Bates said. You can
think youre going in there for a routine examand then,
all of a sudden, you have cancer. Or all of a sudden,
you want to have your tubes untied because your infant
son died of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome. You just
never know.
KU staff interpreter Allison Gile will never forget
one trip to the hospital. She was called in to interpret
for someone who had just been in an accident. By the
time she made it to the emergency room, the patient
had died. Within moments of walking through the
door, Allison had to enter the waiting room to give the
family the news. As much as she wanted to comfort the
bereaved, all she could do was interpret.
When she arrived home that night, Allison collapsed
into her husbands arms and wept; she still tears up talk-
ing about it. When she wonders whether she could have
done anything differently, she remembers the situation
was what it was completely beyond her control.
In interpreter training, Gile was taught to remain
completely detached from every interpretation. The
rule is part of the code of ethics of the Registry of
Intepreters for the Deaf, the professional organization
for interpreters. Youre just a conduit, they told her. You
are not to have any emotion or reaction to what you see
or who you interact with.
But she did.
Youhavetocarrythat withyou,shesaid. Sometimes
you cry. Sometimes you pray. Sometimes
you laugh. Sometimes you vent.
For Ryan Schwarzenberger, hearing
problems didnt surface until soon after
his first birthday. When his parents called
his name and tried to get his attention, Ryan wouldnt
respond. After tests at the doctors office, Ryans parents
learned that he was almost completely deaf; only surgery
could save what little hearing he had left. Fromthe age
of two, Ryan would require the use of digital hearing
aids to pick up what little sound he could.
Because of this, Ryan learned to sign before he
learned to speak. As he began to find his voice, Ryans
parents learned to understand what their son was saying
by referencing the sign he used as he spoke. His parents
told him that walking outside one day, the boy turned
to them and said his first word: mau-wer. But because
he accompanied his words with a sign in this case,
pinching at the air in front of each of his cheeks once
Ryans parents understood his spoken word: flower.
Ryan also learned to read lips as a means of supple-
menting his hearing. Even with the hearing aids, he
needs the extra help. If someone is far away, speaks
softly, or has an accent, Ryan cannot understand them.
Certain voices he is used to, like those of his parents, he
can understand without difficulty. For most peoples
voices, however, his hearing is exceptionally limited.
Ill catch the fact that they said something, but not
the precision that they said it, he said.
For Tara Schupner, a 2006 graduate in journalism,
growing up was entirely silent. Tara was born com-
pletely deaf: she has never heard her mothers voice;
never heard herself laugh; never heard the sound of
her own name. Like Ryan, she attended a mainstream
school from kindergarten through high school. Unlike
Ryan, she initially chose to attend Gallaudet University,
a school established by Congress to cater specifically to
deaf students. There, Tara was able to take part directly
in every part of her classes without assistance for the
first time in her life.
When I was at Gallaudet, I was able to communicate
directly with my classmates and professors, so I got
direct access to classroom discussions and lectures,
she said.
She left Gallaudet for KU in hopes of achieving a
better education. It also meant dealing with an old set
of challenges.
Transferring to KU was like returning to what Id
experienced in public school, Tara said.
Kelly Rogel, a 2005 graduate in genetics, grew up in
an environment drastically different from the one Tara
recalls. One of her earliest memories is inventing signs
with the kids in her neighborhood so that they could
communicate as they played. Her parents also learned
to sign as quickly as they could to be able to talk with
What I remember about growing up deaf is that
oftentimes I would forget I was deaf around my friends,
Kelly said, but my teachers seemed to take a while
before they realized I was capable of doing the same
things as everyone else could do.
Thats where Kim, as the Universitys interpreter
coordinator, comes in. Its her job to put students into
circumstances where they can succeed as well if only
differently as their hearing peers.
At the beginning of each semester, she sits down with
each of her students to discuss what they need on any
given day in every class. She then assembles a master
schedule that assigns interpreters to different classes.
Depending on their availability, she hopes to give them
cohesive blocks of time on campus.
But things are never that simple. After the schedules
been set, something always comes along to change the
dynamic and puts her back at square one. One semes-
ter, a deaf student enrolled at KUshortly before the start
of the fall semester. With only hours before the start of
classes, Kimstarted making the schedule all over again.
She also needs to keep in mind which interpreters
a student works best with and which interpreters have
experience in certain subjects. By the time students
reach senior year in genetics, as Kelly did, they are
expected to have mastered certain vocabulary and
techniques. The same demand is levied on their inter-
There arent any signs for most genetic vocabulary,
Kelly said, so it was tough for interpreters including
Kim, who interpreted some of my classes to con-
stantly spell out all of these long genetic terms.
Despite the strains of Kims job, Ryan never once
recalls her buckling under the pressure of taking care of
so many words or people at once.
I cant imagine how stressful her job is, Ryan said.
Shes been perfect.
Kim also tries to take an active interest in students
outside of the classroom. Her job becomes easier if they
trust her. Beyond that, she genuinely cares.
Shell ask Ryan how his fantasy baseball team is
doing, help get students prearranged reserved seating at
Allen Fieldhouse in the event a group wants to attend,
and even introduce them to her own kids. In a silent
world typically defined by isolation, the transition to
college can be even lonelier. Ryan remembers look-
ing forward to class his first semester freshman year
because of Kims presence.
It was comforting to me to know that I was going
to see at least one familiar face that day, he said about
When Emily Cressy, a junior from Ventura, Calif.
, first arrived as a scholarship athlete, she decided to
redshirt her first year on the soccer team. This meant
she couldnt travel with the teamto away soccer games,
which in turn made her even more isolated and home-
sick. Emily started flying home to California every
weekend to be with her family. During the following
summer, she considered not returning to the University
Kimwas one of the people who persuaded her to come
She texted me and said, Its going to get better. Youll
be here to do what you came to do, Emily recalled.
Now in her sophomore season, she is looking ahead
to what comes next. She wants to play professionally
after college. Shed be the first deaf woman in the United
States to do so. Shes glad she chose to stay.
Kim started classes at Johnson County
Community College in the fall of 1994. At
the beginning of spring semester, she met
Dwaine Bates at a local Dennys restaurant
where she studied late most nights. By
springs end, the two were engaged. They
married and moved to Topeka where their
first daughter, Kailey, was born.
Kimbegan to freelance on campus while also taking
classes toward a degree in speech-language-hearing.
She graduated in 2003, the same year her daughter Ellie
was born.
When Kimbecame the Universitys interiminterpret-
er coordinator, she jumped at the opportunity to spend
more time in the classroom. The sheer quantity of
classes she has observed is staggering. Kimcan rattle off
a list of disciplines shes audited as if they were members
of her own family: education, sociology, biology, politi-
cal science, English, anthropology, chemistry, journal-
ism, biochemistry, geography and law. As she views it,
a tuition-free, exam-free pass into every department of
the University is a perk of her job.
I get to see how things really do integrate and how
there is more interdisciplinary connections than most
students realize when theyre in their major, Kim said.
If I can be in an environment where I can learn new
stuff every day, Ima happy girl.
But there are drawbacks. While she loves being in the
classroom and taking in as much as she can, Kim rec-
ognizes that occasionally some students she translates
for dont have the same love for learning that she does.
During class, they might work on a crossword puzzle or
even surf the Internet. Emily admits that she often texts
her friends. Others skip.
In the event one misses class, interpreters allowa five-
minute leeway period. If the student doesnt show up,
the interpreters leave. If the student is there, however,
the interpreter must remain at the front of the roomand
continue to sign, even if the student isnt watching her
and paying attention.
In those moments, Kim explained, she is not the
interpreter coordinator, nor is she the students profes-
sor. She is merely the intermediary and whatever she
thinks or feels about a students lack of participation is
When Imout in the classroom, I just have to let that
all go, she said.
Kims office provides a small window to her life beyond
work. Photos of Dwaine and her kids cas-
cade along the top of her cabinets. Over her
right shoulder is a small placard that says
Faith, Family, Friends. A photograph she
took in the third grade is tacked to a bulletin
board beyond her desk. Its a landscape shot
of her hometown at sunset, one of the things
she misses most about living in the country.
She points out a cloud formation just
barely visible on the photographs horizon. To her, it
looks like a cross. Kimsees signs everywhere that instill
in her a sense of belief and of purpose.
Imcalled to be an ambassador for Christ, she said.
Growing up in a church-going family prepared her
for much of the work she does well. Shes comfortable
interpreting at funerals or worship services and said she
believes her skills are God-given.
Allison says that God sent her to KU. In Kim, Allison
found a kindred spirit who can understand the work
that she does as well as the role faith plays in her life.
The two pray with one another, for one another, and
provide a deep support system in a sometimes-trying
n n n
When evidence class lets out, the students scatter
immediately. Kim takes a few extra minutes to talk
with both Ryan and Heidi before packing up her stuff.
They compare notes and debrief, making sure that
everything is in order for the next class. She checks
with Prater one final time to ensure she hasnt mis-
understood his topics. As their discussion comes to a
close, Kim raises the sign for the letter V to her face.
As she brings it down in front of her chest, her middle
finger contracts as her thumb extends. They both
know what she means. See ya.
But learning about collateral evidence doesnt satisfy
her need to learn. Bates, who has translated for deaf
students enough classes throughout the University to
earn a dozen different degrees, then heads back to her
office to study.
Shes working on both a masters and a doctorate in
cognitive psychology.

Murray impedes
Ghostbusters 3
never been able to mount an-
other installment in the Ghost-
busters franchise. If theres
always one fy in the ointment,
its Bill Murray.
It seems pretty much every-
one else involved with the project
has a vested interest in making
a Ghostbusters 3. But everyone
seems to want his blessing.
If youre laying odds, Id say the
odds of Murray giving his blessing
to a new Ghostbusters sequel
are as good as the odds of Sandra
Bullock getting back together
with Jesse James.

have a fear. Its been slowly
growing since I began col-
lege and now that Ill be
graduating in just over a week,
this fear cannot be ignored any
Im like a lot of my fellow
soon-to-be graduates. Were all
looking for a job, some decent
way to make a living after college
and if were lucky insur-
ance benefits attached to that
new adult job.
But I have something that
many other graduates never have
to think about. It is something
that could determine whether
Ill even have a fair interview, let
alone a job, just because of who I
am: Im gay.
I know this is a startling rev-
elation for all of you who read
The Kansan. But those outside
this arena those hiring people
for full-time jobs dont know
this. Not yet.
For my fellow gays, those
graduating and those up-and-
coming, this type of job anxiety
is common. I ask myself: Will
my sexual orientation make it
harder for me to get a job?
Even with laws put in place
that are supposed to ensure
equality in the workplace, there
is still a good deal of prejudice.
For example, most businesses
dont offer same-sex partners
insurance benefits. Whats more,
most states dont acknowledge
same-sex partnerships as legal
unions, so theres something to
think about before I even try to
get a job.
So, how do I apply for a job
without worrying about whether
my sexual orientation will affect
it? The answer? I cant. With
todays technology and employ-
ers Googling potential hires,
theres no way I can apply for a
job without them Googling my
name and seeing that I wrote all
of these happy, gay columns for
The Kansan.
I dont care who knows my
sexual orientation. I am certainly
not going back in the closet just
so an employer will give me the
time of day to prove I am worthy
of the job Im applying for. But,
thats a personal choice.
For my fellow gays who are
looking into traditionally con-
servative jobs, such as working
as a lawyer, doctor or politician,
you probably have your resume
adapted so anything that could
potentially out you is dimin-
ished or not.
In the case of finding a niche
after college, how forward one
is with sexual orientation truly
becomes a personal choice.
There are people I know who
were super, Im out and proud
in college, who, since graduating,
look and act nothing like they
used to.
Its not a crime to choose to
put aside who you are when you
go to your job. We all have to
get by, but until the federal gov-
ernment recognizes us as equal
citizens, it makes me sad to say
that some of us will have to stay
in a closet until we have full and
equal protection just to make a
Just dont let that fear of rejec-
tion keep you from being proud.
I am not afraid to be who I am,
and part of that is because I have
lived in this town and been a
part of a university that believes
in my rights, regardless of who
I love.
I wish everyone such feelings
of comfort and security as they
continue from the University
on to lifes next big thing. Heres
to being out, being proud and
being a Jayhawk.

Identity clashes with
opportunity in careers
Predictions for Republican Party
in the upcoming primary election
oday marks the begin-
ning of KJHK Week at the
Kansas Union, where the
radio station will host events to
celebrate its move.
KJHK often doesnt get the
recognition it deserves. Students
should take this opportunity to
show appreciation by participat-
ing in this weeks activities.
KJHK, the Universitys official
radio station, serves an invaluable
role to the campus and commu-
nity. It is student operated and
broadcasts programs uniquely
formatted for our campus.
Students should tune in to 90.7
KJHK year-round to keep up
on campus events and culture.
Unfortunately, this isnt always
done. This week is great oppor-
tunity for students to familiarize
themselves with the programs
and personalities KJHK offers.
Until today, KJHK, the
Universitys official radio station,
was broadcast from the Sudler
House. Nicknamed The Shack,
the building is located on 11th
street behind Triangle fraternity.
Because of the deteriorating
condition of the old building, the
station moved its facilities to the
third floor of the Kansas Union.
Logan Nickels, KJHK sta-
tion manager, said there was the
option to either renovate the
Shack or change studios. He said
moving to the Union was the
obvious choice because it would
give KJHK the opportunity to
increase technological capa-
bilities. A state-of-the-art studio
would also have the bonus of
increasing the stations visibility.
Alex Kane, Jam Sandwich
host and special programs DJ,
said the move would be bitter-
sweet because of all of the charac-
ter in the Shack. He said the staff
tired to incorporate the history of
the Shack into the new location.
Some items that would go with
the move include the door and
graffiti that decorated the walls.
The staff of KJHK is doing a
good job of respecting its his-
tory. Much of these efforts are
being done show that current and
future students can learn from the
history of KJHK. Students should
take this opportunity to learn
about one of the Universitys
unique and illustrious programs.
Since its inception, KJHK has
grown to extend its signal to
Kansas Citys western half. The
success of the station has also
brought national attention to the
University and community.
The station has been listed in
New York Rocker and The
College Music Journal as one of
the top stations in the country.
Although Nickels said the
move marks the beginning of a
new era, he didnt anticipate it
would interfere with operations.
The only difference our listen-
ers will catch in our program-
ming is a better signal, he said.
KJHK deserves the respect of
our University. Students should
show support by attending the
events this week. Even more
significantly, they should tune in
throughout the year.
Thursday is the official inaugu-
ration of the new facilities. Friday
has been declared KJHK Day.

ditors Note: The primary
election for the Kansas
gubernatorial and congres-
sional races will be August 3.
Expect this summer to heat up
with plenty of good political debate.
Here, Chet Compton makes his pre-
dictions for the election outcome.
Governor: Sam Brownback:
Brownbacks only primary chal-
lenger, Secretary of State Ron
Thornburg, dropped out of the
race last June.
Barring any major shake-up, it
is safe to say Brownback will be
the winner of the August primary.
Republicans across the state are
excited about finally regaining the
Brownback is a leader that will
make Kansas proud.
U.S. Senate: Todd Tiahrt:
There are two candidates in this
race, but only one real conserva-
tive. Tiahrt is the only candidate
who has never voted to raise taxes.
His record proves that he is the
true fiscal conservative the state
and the country need right now.
He is proven to be strong on
defense supporting a robust
Patriot Act and opposing giving
new rights to terrorists.
Tiahrt is a bold and effective
leader who is not worried about
taking a stand.
He has also shown that he cares
about college students he has
been endorsed by the Kansas
Federation of College Republicans
and is the only candidate in this
race that has taken the time to
come share his ideas with the KU
College Republicans.
Kansas District 04: Mike
Pompeo: Pompeo is a conserva-
tive with a military, legal and busi-
ness background. Pompeo learned
first-hand the importance of fiscal
responsibility and he knows what
it takes to create jobs.
He helped found and grow
Thayer Aerospace to more than
500 employees.
His impressive resume includes
graduating first in his class from
West Point, serving as a decorated
cavalry officer in Germany and
graduating with honors from
Harvard Law School.
Pompeo has successfully fired
up the Republican base in the
fourth district. He has by far the
largest volunteer base.
He also has six more times
the individual contributors to
his campaign than all the other
Republican candidates combined.
He out fundraised his Republican
opponents by a 5-to-1 margin in
the first quarter.
Kansas District 03: Kevin
Yoder: Like it or not, money mat-
ters in campaigns. In little more
than three months, Yoder has
shown that he knows how to raise
He has raised half a million dol-
lars in that short time, forcing his
main opponent, Nick Jordan to
drop out of the race.
Yoder is the clear frontrunner
in this campaign, and Kansas con-
servatives should be proud.
During his Kansas House re-
election campaign in 2008, he was
endorsed by Kansans For Life and
received an A rating from the
National Rifle Association.
He is now running as a fis-
cal conservative, ready to go to
Washington to reign in spending
and cut government waste.
Kansas District 02: Lynn
Jenkins: Jenkins is hoping to be
the senior congresswoman from
the state of Kansas after only two
successful campaigns. As of now,
she is running unopposed in the
Republican primary.
Kansas District 01: Tim
Huelskamp: This is looking like it
is going to be a close race between
Huelskamp and former candidate
for Governor Jim Barnett.
Huelskamp has earned himself
a long list of solid endorsements,
including Governors Rick Perry
and Mike Huckabee, the conser-
vative Club for Growth PAC and
Kansans for Life.
This seat looks to be safely in
Republican hands, making the
winner of the August primary a
near lock for Congress.

Tasteless musical reflects
poorly on the University
As a Chinese American, I am
deeply offended by the University
Theatre musical Anything Goes.
I couldnt help but wonder how
the director and the producer
failed to notice the blatant racism.
Ten minutes into the produc-
tion, two white actors with fake
pigtails, dressed in what looked
like traditional Chinese garb,
appeared on the stage as servants.
Then these actors started to yell
in incomprehensible monotone,
simply acting according to the
dominant stereotypes of Chinese
men in western media.
Throughout the musical, these
two characters squabbled in fake
Chinese, all in pitiful attempts to
generate cheap laughs from the
audience who was equally clue-
less about latent racism.
I cannot distinguish any dif-
ference between these caricatures
and the stereotypical depiction
of the Ching Chong Chinaman
before the 1950s.
The depictions of Asian
women and children are even
more despicable. Somehow, the
sexual exploitation of a young
rice patty plum blossom is
hilarious as the white man proud-
ly exercises gypsy magic over
the easily sold Chinese honor.
I probably couldnt find a bet-
ter example of objectifying and
eroticizing the other than this
musical. The decision to per-
petuate these stereotypes against
Chinese Americans was morally
wrong on so many levels. It not
only disrespects the more than
1,500 ethnic Chinese students at
the University, but it shows dis-
crimination against minorities is
somehow funny and acceptable.
How will we educate students
with an insensitive portrayal of
one-fifth the worlds population?
With all due respect, I hope the
University can make necessary
amends. In regards to racial ste-
reotypes, not anything goes.

NEW YORK Police combed
through a charred SUV and a crude
assortment of explosives Sunday
for clues to a failed Times Square
bombing as a monitoring group
reported that the Pakistani Taliban
had claimed responsibility for the
terrorist threat.
An intelligence-monitoring
group released a one-minute video
allegedly from the Pakistani Taliban,
in which it claimed responsibility
for the failed bombing in a smok-
ing SUV left parked in the city on
Saturday night, clearing thousands
of tourists and theatergoers from
the citys busiest district.
The U.S.-based SITE intelligence
group, which monitors militant
websites, said the Pakistani Taliban
claimed the attack was revenge for
the death of its leader Baitullah
Mehsud and the recent killings of
the top leaders of al-Qaida in Iraq.
New York authorities were exam-
ining the SUV at a forensic lab for
fingerprints and DNA evidence.
The bomb, which partly deto-
nated but malfunctioned, could
have sprayed shrapnel that killed
pedestrians in the immediate vicin-
ity, top NYPD spokesman Paul
Browne said.

Oklahoma swept Kansas in two games over the weekend as
the Jayhawks extended their conference losing streak to eight.
Kansas fell to 19-32 (1-15) while No. 10 Oklahoma improved
to 39-10 (13-3) in its hunt for the Big 12 Conference title.
Oklahoma pitcher Keilani Ricketts threw a solid first game,
junior pitcher Allie Clark said.
It caught us off guard, which it shouldnt have, Clark said.
We were struggling and couldnt get runners on base.
Coach Megan Smith said she knew Ricketts would be
tough coming into the series, and she showed why Oklahoma
has the lowest combined ERA in the Big 12.
She hit her spots really well and had good command over
her pitches, Smith said. But I think we couldve done a better
job and couldve made some adjustments.
Even though Kansas wasnt getting hits, it had a strong
defensive first game, junior catcher Brittany Hile said.
Defensively we just played really solid all the way through
seven innings, Hile said.
Smith said she was pleased with what she saw from the
defense, and several players came through with crucial defen-
sive plays.
We did a good job defensively, and thats what you got to
do against a great hitting team like that, Smith said.
In the second game things didnt go so well for Kansas. It
again had two hits, but this time Kansas gave up 12 hits and
seven runs.
Kansas will return to action again Wednesday when it has
its final non-conference series with Drake in Des Moines,

While being described as quiet,
it may be hard to think senior first
baseman Amanda Jobe could throw
a punch if she needed to. But she
did a lot more than that on her
way to becoming a recommended
black belt.
After starting tae kwon do when
she was nine, she moved up to the
rank of recommended black belt,
the level which precedes the black
belt and takes a year to complete,
but she had to decide between tae
kwon do and softball because of
the time commitment each one
I wish I wouldve been able to
find the time to do both, but the
level I got into in karate required a
lot more time, Jobe said.
Softball was the choice, and as
she comes to the end of her softball
career, she said she embraced the
game by putting everything she had
into it.
During her high school career,
which included a state title and a
state runner-up, Jobe said playing
for Kansas was her goal. When
Kansas offered her a scholarship
her sophomore year in high school,
she quickly committed.
I grew up a Jayhawk fan my
entire life. It was kind of a no-brain-
er, Jobe said. I committed really
early because I knew if I was given
the option, I would go here.
Jobe became a four-year starter,
and after being moved around her
freshman year, she started at first
base for the past three seasons. With
Kansas fielding a young team this
season that starts four freshmen,
coach Megan Smith said Jobe was a
great asset to help lead the team.
Shes not very loud on the field,
but she leads by example, and the
underclassmen see how she con-
ducts herself on and off the field,
Smith said. We hope all of our
players strive to be like her.
Junior catcher Brittany Hile, who
played with Jobe before they both
went to Kansas, said Jobe has a great
passion for the game, even if it may
not look like it.
Shell make the plays, get outs
and just not seem too excited, Hile
said. She doesnt show it much, but
you know she has the drive to get
it done.
Being a four-year starter, Jobe
has embraced being a student-ath-
lete, being named on both All-Big
12 Second Team twice as well as
Academic All-Big 12 First Team
twice in her first three years.
Jobe said it got difficult balanc-
ing school and softball, and in one
course alone, she has missed around
20 classes this semester.
Its hard because theres really
not much I can do about it, Jobe
said. Its a struggle, but my teachers
and coaches have really been great.
After Jobe gets her bachelors
degree, she said she planned to
apply to the University of Kansas
Medical Center this summer, and
has thought about either a family
practice or sports medicine.
Jobe said with her final season
coming to a close, she doesnt know
what life will be like after softball.
Ive played softball for so many
years and involved in a system that
really helped guide me through
everything, Jobe said. Im about to
be at a point where Im kind of all
on my own.

formances from his pitching staff,
coach Ritch Price said any chance
for a successful weekend would
begin and end with quality pitch-
Though each of Kansas three
starting pitchers delivered a
strong outing, it was only enough
to earn one victory in Stillwater
after spotty relief pitching.
After a convincing 17-3 victory
on Friday, Kansas (26-19-1, 7-10-
1) stumbled against Oklahoma
State and dropped the final two
games 7-8 and 4-5 behind a rash
of mistakes and blown leads.
Thats a devastating weekend,
coach Ritch Price said. They had
an opportunity to do something
special, and we were knocking
right on the door but unable to
finish the deal.
The Jayhawks didnt appear to
be headed for disappointment as
they turned in a near-perfect per-
formance on Friday night.
Kansas was stout on offense as
every starter tallied at least one
hit and on the mound as well,
where junior T.J. Walz flirted with
a no-hitter.
Walz took his no-hit bid into
the ninth but gave up two straight
singles. The junior finished his
outing with 8-plus innings, allow-
ing two hits and two runs while
striking out 11.
Senior Cameron Selik and
freshman Tanner Poppe didnt
boast no-hit pitching in their
starts on Saturday and Sunday,
respectively, but they each gave
the Jayhawks an opportunity to
Selik held the Cowboys to two
runs through seven innings on
Saturday, while Poppe worked
the first five and 2/3 innings
on Sunday, allowing only three
In both games, though, despite
rallying to take a late lead, Kansas
was unable to hold off Oklahoma
Down 2-0 in the seventh on
Saturday, the Jayhawks collected

hype has
fever pitch
never expected to come to an
epiphany after a high school bas-
ketball players college declaration/
hat ceremony/superbly overhyped
Terrence Jones, the No. 13 recruit
in Rivals.coms class of 2010 rankings,
sat in his high school gym in Portland,
Ore., with the hats of five schools in
front of him: Kansas, Washington,
Oklahoma, Oregon
and Kentucky. The
event was broad-
cast online. Nearly
25,000 people were
watching when
Jones made his
decision on the
He reached with
his right hand six inches above the
white Kansas hat at his left, making
Kansas fans thousands of miles away
collectively gasp in excitement, and
then juked back right and grabbed the
black Washington hat.
In that juke came the recruiting
epiphany: following recruiting closely
is a worthless activity.
Like anyone else, I am curious who
will be playing in the crimson and blue
next season, but I vow to never watch
another hat ceremony, media timeout
announcement or awkward Skype
video conference session with Roy
If Kansas adds a new recruit, thats
important information. Depending on
the players caliber, it can add a new
level to a team. No. 1 recruit Josh Selby
will probably start for Kansas next sea-
son, so that addition will cut into the
playing time of other returning Kansas
Simply, I want to know what the
recruit says at his press conference, but
I dont want to know what hes think-
ing beforehand.
There is too much buildup for these
high school athletes. With recruiting
services calling prospects seemingly
every day and recording any visits
from coaches, anyone with an Internet
connection has an opinion about
where a player is going to go.
These recruiting services make
money because people want precisely
the information I hope to never read
into again. Message boards blow up
when a recruit does an interview or
makes an official visit. We write about
it because people want to read it.
One commenter on JayhawkSlant.
coms message board said he saw
Terrence Jones eating with Bill Self and
others at Jeffersons during Jones offi-
cial visit last week. He also noted that
Self s back was turned to the recruit.
People went bonkers. In a matter
of six hours, the post had 54 replies.
Some tried to infer that Self was in the
wrong for not facing Jones directly.
Others thought Jones wasnt having a
good time because he wasnt the center
of Self s attention.
Lets get real.
These are high school kids who
are going to change their minds quite
often. We have no way of knowing
what goes on behind closed doors,
and recruits sure arent going to tell
anyone if they are getting benefits that
potentially violate any rules to enroll
All we need to know is who will be
on the roster in September and that
there werent any recruiting violations.
There is one silver lining: recruiting
is pretty much over. Now we finally get
away from all the recruit-speak.
Well, until next spring.

n the last few days, Ive received
various texts and questions pertain-
ing to college football, MLB and the
NBA. But from all of the questions, one
really stood out. And its a question I must
Question: Whos better, Kobe or
This is a fun one because I love the
NBA, and I especially love these two play-
ers. Still, it has to be answered.
They are the two best players in a
league full of stars and they are both mar-
keting giants. But this isnt about there
marketability; its about whos better.
Yes, Kobe Bryant has more titles (four)
than LeBron (zero), but for three of those
were with Shaquille ONeal in his prime.
LeBron has now teamed with Shaq, too,
but its at the end of his career. Kobe
would have the advantage there.
Then you would have to look at sup-
porting casts. The Cavaliers have upgrad-
ed the talent since LeBron James landed
in Cleveland. Tony Battie and Lee Nailon
played alongside LeBron his rookie sea-
son, while hes playing with Mo Williams
and Antawn Jamison now. Sill, he hasnt
reached the ultimate goal of a NBA title.
This past season, Kobe, along with a
talented supporting cast of Pau Gasol
and Lamar Odom, defeated the Orlando
Magic for the NBA title. Although Kobe
has more Titles, Lebron has done more
with a less-talented supporting cast.
The final topic in this discussion has
to be who is most clutch and who can
deliver in the big moment.
Kobe Bryants nickname is the Black
Mamba, a reference to the worlds dead-
liest snake. Its fitting because at times
teams seem to have died watching Kobe
shoot lights out, for example he scored 81
points against Toronto in 2006, second-
best ever.
Still, LeBron may have done one better.
He turned a whole series around in the
2007 Eastern Conference Finals against
the Detroit Pistons. The Pistons took
the first two games from the Cavaliers,
and seemed like the were headed for an
almost certain series victory.
Keyword, though, is almost. In Detroit
in Game 5, LeBron put the whole team
on his back by scoring 29 of the last 30
points, including 25 straight to end the
game and helped the Cavs clinch the
series in the next game. Although Kobe
has more titles, LeBron is the only player
in the NBA with the nickname The King.
Answer: LeBron.

Pletcher didnt want to watch the
Kentucky Derby with friends. He
didnt want to watch it with fam-
ily. He didnt want to pick one of
the four owners he was represent-
ing and sit with them. In fact, he
didnt even want to watch it live
from the stands.
He wanted to watch it alone, on
television, inside the Horsemans
Lounge, halfway down the tunnel
beneath the grandstands.
Obviously, I needed to change
something, said Pletcher, who
entered Saturdays 136th Run
for the Roses 0-for-24, the most
attempts without a victory in the
history of the race.
And so as history unfolded
Saturday at Churchill Downs,
when jockey Calvin Borel made
his move and guided Super Saver
through the mud and along the
rail to win the Kentucky Derby
by a length and a half ahead of
Ice Box and Paddy OPraddo,
Pletcher was all by himself.
Television cameras caught him
throwing an emphatic fist pump,
but by the time he emerged from
the tunnel, the stoic and per-
petually stone-faced Pletcher had
once again wrestled control of his
I think it will all soak in in a day
or two, Pletcher said. Obviously,
its a race Ive dreamed my whole
life of winning. Now that its hap-
pened, I dont know what to feel
or say.
Pletchers preference for
restraint is, of course, in direct
contrast with Borels exuberance
and unbridled energy. In victory,
he pounded his chest, blew kisses
to his wife, Lisa, and soaked in
the applause of an appreciative
crowd of 155,803, the sixth largest
in Derby history. This was Borels
second straight Kentucky Derby
victory, and his third win in the
past four years, something no
other jockey has accomplished.
After the race, he even got a rare
smile from Pletcher by declaring
that he and Super Saver were
going to win the Triple Crown.
Calvin Borel is a great rider
anywhere he goes, but for some
reason at Churchill Downs, hes
even five lengths better, Pletcher
When it rained hard Saturday
morning, drenching the Churchill
Downs track and turning the dirt
into a thick soup, Super Saver,
who is owned by WinStar Farm,
seemed to emerge as the horse
to beat, and not just because of
his preference for running the
mud. It was also because of Borel,
a fearless rider who knows how
to summon that special magic
required to win in a 20-horse field
at Churchill Downs.
the buzz about Rory McIlroy
came to life Sunday at the Quail
Hollow Championship with
one dazzling shot after another
in a record round that made
him the PGA Tours youngest
winner since Tiger Woods.
Explosive as ever, the
20-year-old from Northern
Ireland was 5 under over the
final five holes to set the course
record at 10-under 62 and win
by four shots over Masters
champion Phil Mickelson.
McIlroy finished in style,
rolling in a 40-foot birdie putt
on the 18th hole and thrusting
his fist into the air.

NEW YORK Mark Teixeira
tied a career high with four hits and
Robinson Cano had a three-run
homer, backing another dominant
performance by Phil Hughes in the
New York Yankees 12-3 rout of the
Chicago White Sox on Sunday.
Teixeira continued his emer-
gence from an April slump with a
two-run double and three singles
that raised his average to .189. Nick
Swisher added a two-run shot and
Brett Gardner hit a rare homer to
help the Yankees take two of three
from Chicago.
Hughes (3-0) stymied the White
Sox, limiting them to four hits over
seven innings. Hughes, who won
the No. 5 starter job this spring,
had not allowed more than three
hits in any of his first three starts.
He struck out six while walking

Relief pitcher Mark Melancon
was called up from Triple-A
Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. He pitched
two innings and gave up a long
three-run homer to Paul Konerko,
his 12th of the season.
Alex Rodriguez was given the
day off, but Girardi said it was just
a rest and there was nothing wrong
with the slugger, who came out
for a pinch runner Saturday in the
ninth inning.
The speedy Gardner gave the
Yankees their first run when his
two-out grounder in the second
deflected off the glove of a lung-
ing Konerko at first base and spun
away from second baseman Gordon
Beckham. The infield single scored
Cano, who led off with a double.
In the fourth, Gardner hit first
homer since June 26, 2009, at the
Mets, a span of 167 at-bats. It came
a batter after Mark Kotsay caught
Marcus Thames drive near the top
of the right-field wall.
The Yankees added three runs
against struggling Mark Buehrle
(2-4) in the fifth. After Teixeira and
Swisher singled, Cano reached low
to pull his ninth homer of the year
and make it 5-0.
Swisher followed with a two-run
drive off Tony Pena in the sixth,
and the Yankees added five runs in
the seventh.
White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen
was ejected during Gardners at-bat
in the seventh after a prolonged
argument over balls and strikes
with plate umpire Dan Iassogna.
It was the second time Guillen has
been tossed this season and the
21st time in his career.
Guillen told reporters he was
up until nearly 3 a.m. watching
news of the failed bomb attack that
took place just two blocks from the

Rookie Jennings vows to come back stronger
ATLANTA Brandon Jennings
left his rookie year Sunday with
a vow.
This summer Ill work out, get
stronger and come back a totally
different player, he said after the
Milwaukee Bucks were eliminated,
95-74, by the Atlanta Hawks in the
first round of the NBA playoffs.
That has to be an encourag-
ing thought for the Bucks and a
sobering concept for the rest of the
league about the electrifying point
guard who finished third in rookie
of the year voting.
Jennings also averaged 18.7
points in his first postseason expe-
rience after leading the Bucks with
15 points in Game 7. Throughout
the series, he mostly performed
with veteran poise. Though he
struggled with his shot late in the
series, he opened it by scoring 34
points on the Hawks.
I think it was big to play in the
playoffs my rookie year, Jennings
said. It was tough. We took them
to seven games. Everybody prob-
ably had us going four or five.
So I think we did the best we
could without (Andrew) Bogut. We
fought to the end. We were the only
first series still going on. I think we
gave Atlanta all we could.
As for him, I think I did pretty
good, Jennings said. I think I
probably surprised a lot of people. I
think I did a lot as a point guard to
carry the team to that next round.
We came up short. It happens. But
I feel good about it.
I had to walk out with my head
up. We were down a couple of play-
ers and we did the best we could
this series. I think we showed a
lot of people that the Milwaukee
Bucks can attain in this league.
Youve got to be positive.
Never hitting the rookie wall,
Jennings started all 82 games in
the regular season and seven in the
Right now Im going to take
awhile off, he said. Ive played
almost 90 games straight. Then
I have to work on my jump shot
Generally speaking, he should
be much better for the postseason
experience, which only fueled his
desire to lead a team that controls
his rights for the next four sea-
The day I got drafted, I said
I wanted to make the playoffs,
Jennings said. You probably
looked at me like I was crazy, but
I back up a lot of stuff I talk. Just
the fact that we got here makes me
want to work harder. Winning is
everything to me.

Chacin allowed one hit in seven
scoreless innings for his first major
league win, Melvin Mora hit a
two-run single and the Colorado
Rockies avoided a three-game
sweep by beating the San Francisco
Giants 4-1 on Sunday.
Chacin (1-0) struck out seven
and didnt allow a hit until Matt
Downs two-out double in the fifth,
one of only a couple of well-struck
balls he gave up as he kept attack-
ing hitters deep into the game.
Paul Phillips drew a bases-load-
ed walk from Jonathan Sanchez
(2-2) in the fourth to put Colorado
ahead 1-0 and Ryan Spilborghs
also singled home a run in the
four-run fifth.
The Rockies snapped their season-
worst three-game losing streak.
San Franciscos Aubrey Huff
homered for the second straight
day, leading off the ninth with a
drive against Manny Corpas.
The Rockies earned a rare vic-
tory in the Giants waterfront ball-
park, where Colorado won for only
the third time in the last 12 games.
The 22-year-old Chacin walked
three in his second career start and
11th big league appearance, shut-
ting down a San Francisco lineup
that scored 11 runs in the first two
games. The right-hander, in the
rotation because of all the injuries
to the Rockies pitching staff, made
his major league debut against the
Giants in the ninth inning last July
25 at Coors Field.
For the second straight series,
the Giants lost the finale with a
chance to sweep. San Francisco still
finished an impressive 6-3 home-
stand against three 2009 playoff
teams: St. Louis, Philadelphia and
San Francisco leadoff man and
center fielder Aaron Rowand went
1 for 4 with two strikeouts in his
return from the disabled list. He
missed time with small fractures of
his left cheekbone and a mild con-
cussion after he was hit by a pitch
from Vicente Padilla on April 16.
Jason Giambi, in the lineup as
Todd Helton got the day off, had
his 19th career stolen base and
first since June 22, 2008, against

BaseBall ReWIND
But after working a scoreless
eighth, senior Travis Blankenship
relinquished the lead in the ninth,
sending the game to extra innings.
An RBI double by freshman
infielder Jake Marasco and a sac-
rifice fly by senior first baseman
Brett Lisher put Kansas on top
again 7-5, only to have its bullpen
fail to hold Oklahoma State who
rallied to tie the score in the 11th
before walking off with the 8-7 vic-
tory in the 12th inning.
Three Jayhawk relievers com-
bined to allow six runs in four and
1/3 innings in relief of Selik.
Its always tough to lose when
you think you should have won,
Thompson said.
The finish on Sunday featured
more of the same.
Poppe left the game with a 3-2
lead, which freshman Thomas
Taylor relinquished in the seventh
inning as the Cowboys tied the
game on back to back hits before
taking the lead after a wild throw
by Lisher.
And after Kansas tied the score
after a double by junior right
fielder Casey Lytle and a single
by Marasco, Blankenship again
couldnt contain Oklahoma State,
who struck for three singles in the
eighth to regain the lead at 5-4.
Coach Price acknowledged that
losing junior closer Brett Bochy
to an elbow injury was a devastat-
ing blow to the bullpens stopping
power, but Kansas needs to be able
to overcome.
The guys that are getting the
opportunities late in the game have
got to find a way to finish the deal
so we can close out victories, he
Not only did the Jayhawks bull-
pen falter, but their offense was
unable to tack on runs despite
mounting several promising
chances. Kansas left eight men on
base in the contest, the most glar-
ing of the missed opportunities
being a bases-loaded opportunity
in the fourth inning.
We left some runs on the board
and it came back to bite us in the
end, coach Price said.
Junior left fielder Jimmy Waters
said that although every loss hurts,
the two defeats in Stillwater were
even more upsetting because the
Jayhawks mostly beat themselves.
If they could have beaten us
straight up without us making mis-
takes, then they were better that
day, Waters said. But we shot our-
selves in the foot plenty of times.

TJ Walz takes no-hitter against
Cowboys into the ninth inning
Though Kansas offense put on
an impressive display in Fridays
17-3 victory against Oklahoma
State, it was junior pitcher T.J.
Walz who stole the show.
Walz dominated the Cowboys
right from the start and mowed
them down over the next seven
innings as he took a no-hitter into
the ninth inning.
But the speedy Duren Davis
led off the ninth innings with a
ground ball back up the middle of
the infield and barely beat junior
shortstop Brandon Macias throw
for an infield single.
Right when he hit it, I knew he
would beat it out, Walz said.
The next batter also reached
on a single, and Walz came out
of the game just shy of making

The Cowboys were able to score
three in the ninth two charged
to Walz denying the junior a
shutout. But it wasnt enough to

The no-hit-
ter was almost broken up earlier
though, were it not for a stellar
defensive play by junior right
fielder Casey Lytle.
With one out in the fourth
inning, Cowboys catcher/first
baseman Kevin David crushed
the second pitch Walz threw him
to deep right field.
I thought it was gone for sure,
Walz said.
But Lytle had a good read on
the ball, and leaped at the fence to
rob the would-be home run and
preserve Walz attempt at history.
When I saw Casey caught it, I
just threw my arms up. He made
a great play, Walz said.
With the way Walz pitched,
the Jayhawks wouldnt need much
offense though they delivered
plenty of it. Every Kansas starter
tallied at least one of

Kansas bullpen
The three Jayhawk starters did exactly what was needed out of
them, delivering quality performances in each game of the series.
But kansas bullpen failed to hold two leads in saturdays setback,
and again faltered in sundays defeat.
From the stat book
Series to remember
Series to forget
In perspective
Junior center felder Brian Heere
Heere, now riding a 10-game hitting streak,
currently has the most hits (72) in the Big 12 after
a 7-for-17 weekend at the plate. The Lawrence
High product was one of three Jayhawks to col-
lect four hits on Friday night. He also scored four
runs and drove in fve over the weekend.
This is a tough series loss for the Jayhawks, especially after
Fridays blowout victory, and losses on saturday and sunday where
they relinquished late leads. The two would-be victories now have
kansas in dire need of series victories if it hopes to make a repeat
run to the ncaa Tournament.
Weve got to treat every game like the playofs now, junior third
baseman Tony Thompson said..

kansas coach
AKRON, Ohio _ LeBron James
went through a litany of names
of people who have helped him
along the way to winning his
second consecutive NBA Most
Valuable Player Award.
While its
an individual
honor, he
couldnt help
but thank the
group of guys
who sat near
the stage at
the James A.
Rhodes Arena
on Sunday
and eventually joined him on it.
James offered much thanks to his
teammates for helping him.
My name may be on this
trophy as MVP, but these guys
have a lot to do with it, he said.
Individual accolades definitely
come into account, but team is
what its about.
Coach Mike Brown wasnt sur-
prised by the gesture.
Thats just who he is. Thats
what hes about. Hes not selfish
at all, Brown said. He has an
understanding of who has helped
him get to where he is and hes
shown it. It was great seeing his
team up there with him today.
James became the 10th player
to win the award in back-to-back
seasons. He got 116 out of 123
first-place votes, winning by a
margin of 596 points over the
Oklahoma City Thunders Kevin
Duran. Its the widest margin of
victory since Shaquille ONeal
won by 799 points in the 1999-
2000 season.
James led the Cavs to the best
record in the league for a sec-
ond consecutive season with a
61-21 record and averaged 29.7
points on 50 percent shooting,
7.3 rebounds and 8.6 assists per
game. He was the only player to
rank in the leagues top 10 in scor-
ing (second), assists (sixth) and
steals (ninth).
The most important mea-
surement, however, is wins and
losses, and the past two seasons,
James and the Cavs have been the
leagues best. For Brown, its the
camaraderie that James helps to
foster during the loose practice
sessions and on the road that
has been integral in the teams
You have to have a together-
ness that its hard to attain or
achieve at this level, he said.
This group has a trust with each
other, and that trust level has
equated to having pretty good
chemistry on the team.
But even amid all the celebra-
tion that was highlighted by the
fact that about 3,000 fans attend-
ed the almost impromptu event,
there was a two-ton gorilla in the
room named Free Agency.
Cavs owner Dan Gilbert
alluded to it in closing his brief
remarks congratulating James as
he took a quick moment to look
Im sure well be here next year
for MV3, he said.
But when asked how he could
leave the area given the adora-
tion shown to him over his high
school and professional basket-
ball careers, James evaded the
answer as easily as he weaves
through defenders.
This is home for me. I love
this place. I love Akron, Ohio,
to death. Every day I wake up,
I understand that Im not only
carrying myself as an individual,
but Im carrying the city, he said.
No matter where life may head
me throughout my whole life, Im
never gone from here.
For now, it doesnt remain a
concern or focus for his coach,
either. Brown was on the coaching
staff with the San Antonio Spurs
when the brouhaha surrounding
Tim Duncans alleged flight to the
Orlando Magic was a constant
cloud over the franchise.
Im really not looking past this
now, Brown said.
For the here and now, that may
be a good thing because it shows
focus with a singular goal in mind:
winning a championship.
This is the closest Ive been
to it right now with the team we
have, and were looking forward
to the challenge, James said. The
only reason I do what I do out
on the court is to compete for an
NBA championship."

round with defeat of Bucks
AssociAted Press
LOS ANGELES Just in case the Utah Jazz
forgot how Kobe Bryant finishes games, he
provided another painful playoff reminder.
Bryant scored 11 of his 31 points in the final
four minutes, and the Los Angeles Lakers blew
a fourth-quarter lead before rallying for a 104-
99 victory over the Jazz in their second-round
series opener Sunday.
Pau Gasol had 25 points and 12 rebounds
for the top-seeded Lakers, who played a dismal
final period before Bryant seized control. Last
seasons NBA finals MVP coolly scored seven
consecutive points to erase Utahs four-point
lead, followed by a dynamic slice through the
lane for a layup with 22.6 seconds left.
The clubs are meeting in the postseason
for the third consecutive year after the Lakers
ended Utahs last two seasons. In each of the
teams previous five playoff meetings, the win-
ner went on to the NBA finals.
Deron Williams scored 24 points for fifth-
seeded Utah, which managed just one more
field goal after taking a 93-89 lead with 4:10 to
play. Utah has lost 15 straight to the Lakers at
Staples Center, including seven playoff games.
Los Angeles will host Game 2 of the best-of-
seven series on Tuesday night.
Carlos Boozer had 18 points and 12 rebounds
for Utah. Paul Millsap and C.J. Miles contrib-
uted 16 points apiece, including several diffi-
cult baskets in the fourth quarter while the Jazz
surged ahead with a 12-1 run.
It wasnt enough to stop Bryant, who took
over right when Utahs excited bench seemed
certain it was headed to an upset win.
Both teams finished their first-round series
roughly 36 hours earlier, with the Lakers win-
ning at Oklahoma City on Gasols last-second
tip-in shortly before Utah held off Denver.
Lakers center Andrew Bynum started and
played 24 minutes after discovering a small
tear in the meniscus of his right knee Saturday.
The 7-footer wore a large brace on his knee,
but didnt appear limited while collecting eight
points and 10 rebounds.
Utah also has pronounced injury problems.
With Andrei Kirilenko still sidelined with a
strained left calf and center Mehmet Okur out
for the postseason, the Jazz struggled to guard
the Lakers inside when Los Angeles forced the
ball down low.
But the Lakers sometimes seemed disinterest-
ed, a mood matched by the home crowd. After
the Lakers consecutive losses to Oklahoma
City inspired a crackling atmosphere for their
blowout victory in Game 5 last week, Staples
Center was back to its usual relaxed state.
Los Angeles gave out thousands of white
T-shirts in an apparent attempt at a whiteout
crowd to go with the Lakers Sunday white uni-
forms, but the majority of fans didnt bother to
put on the shirts. Lakers fans get excited about
titles, not T-shirts and despite an inconsis-
tent regular season, their team appears capable
of contending for its 16th crown.
Williams injured his elbow late in Utahs
series-clinching win over Denver, putting his
availability for Game 1 in doubt. He forced the
Jazz to call a full timeout just 20 seconds in
after hurting his arm on their first possession.
Yet he showed no obvious favor toward the
injury while scoring 17 points in the first half.
Los Angeles opened with 15-for-19 shooting
in the first quarter, including five shots without
a miss by Bryant. The Lakers led by 14 in the
first half, but Utah sliced the lead to three in
the third quarter before heading into the final
period trailing 81-73.
With both teams using four reserves apiece
to open the fourth quarter, Utah trimmed the
Lakers lead to 82-81 on Millsaps layup with
7:43 left. Miles free throws gave Utah its first
lead since the first quarter moments later
but then Bryant got started.

ATLANTA The Atlanta Hawks
werent going to let another game
slip away on their home court.
After keeping their season alive
with a gutty win in Milwaukee,
the Hawks made sure the Bucks
were in no position to duplicate
their improbable Game 5 upset.
Jamal Crawford scored 22 points,
Al Horford put up a double-double
and Atlanta pulled away for a 95-74
win Sunday that gave the Hawks a
4-3 triumph in the tougher-than-
expected series.
It was the only series to go the
distance in the opening round.
The third-seeded Hawks
advanced to face No. 2 Orlando in
the Eastern Conference semifinals.
The Magic, who have been rest-
ing since wrapping up a sweep of
Charlotte last Monday, will host the
first two games of the series begin-
ning Tuesday night.
Crawford, appearing in the play-
offs for the first time in his 10-year
career, looked like a rookie through
the first five games of the series.
He was at his lowest after a 4-for-
18 shooting performance in Game
5, when the Hawks squandered a
nine-point lead in the final four
minutes to put the Bucks in control
of the series.
But Crawford scored 24 points
in Game 6, and the Hawks clamped
down defensively for an 83-69 win
that sent the series back to Atlanta
for Game 7.
This one was no contest.
The Hawks led by as many 24
late in the game and got a chance
to pull their starters so they could
receive a proper ovation from the
sellout crowd of 19,241.
We going to Disney World, the
public address announcer screamed
as the final seconds ticked off.
Crawford hit 8 of 16 shots, includ-
ing a pair of 3-pointers. Horford
worked hard at both ends of the
court, finishing with 16 points and
15 rebounds. Mike Bibby scored
15 points.

Longorias HR leads Rays
to defeat Greinke, Royals
AssociAted Press
Davis beat Zack Greinke in a scin-
tillating pitchers duel, and Evan
Longoria homered to lift the Tampa
Bay Rays over the Kansas City
Royals 1-0 on Sunday.
Davis (3-1) allowed three hits,
three walks and struck out five
in seven innings during his latest
matchup with an American League
ace. The right-hander has faced the
opposing teams opening day start-
er including New York Yankees
lefty CC Sabathia and Bostons Josh
Beckett in all five of his starts
this year.
Greinke (0-3) gave up four hits
in his 10th career complete game
and first this season. The 2009
AL Cy Young Award winner, who
has yielded just three runs over 22
innings in his last three starts, struck
out six and hit a batter with a pitch.
Tampa Bay, which has won 15 of
19, split the four-game series with
the Royals.
Longoria put the Rays ahead in
the fourth with his sixth homer. He
had been hitless in 10 at-bats against
Greinke before a first-inning single.
After Randy Choate and Dan
Wheeler combined for a perfect
eighth, Rafael Soriano pitched the
ninth for his sixth save.
Kansas City put a man on second
in four innings against Davis, who
worked out of trouble by holding
the Royals to 0 for 9 with runners in
scoring position.
Greinke dropped to 0-4 in 10
games including seven starts
against Tampa Bay. The Rays are the
only AL opponent that Greinke has
never beaten.
