Nursing programs to
get extra funding
All the public nursing programs
in Kansas will have the opportunity
to receive funding from a ten-year
Board of Regents proposal con-
cerning the shortage of nurses in
the state of Kansas.
The funding for the rst year
of the ten-year initiative was ap-
proved last week. Those institu-
tions eligible for the funding must
submit applications that were sent
to them on June 1.
The plan was proposed to in-
crease the nursing staff in the state
of Kansas by 25 percent. It has
been predicted by the Kansas De-
partment of Labor that by 2010, to
meet the workforce demand, there
will be 6,890 new registered nurse
positions available .
A reason for the shortage is a
greater demand in the health care
system for an aging population,
during the time when many regis-
tered nurses will be retiring.
Senator Jim Barone (D-Fron-
tenac) said it doesnt make sense
that we have people interested in
nursing, but are turned away from
the school because lack of money .
Here we have qualied appli-
cants, but we dont have the fund-
ing, he said .

Czyz wins top award
for closer in NCAA
Kansas senior closer Don Czyz
was awarded the 2006 Stopper of
the Year by the National Collegiate
Baseball Writers Association last
Thursday. Czyz has already been
named to the Louisville Slugger
All-America First Team, the All-Big
12 First Team and the 2006 College
Foundation All-America team.
Czyz beat out Josh Fields of
Georgia, Kevin Gunderson of Or-
egon State, Vinnie Pestano of Cal
State Fullerton and Cole St. Clair of
Rice to win the award.
The Overland Park native n-
ished with a 6-0 record, a 1.56 ERA
while leading the nation with 19
saves. The right hander struck out
60 in 63.1 innings pitched.
This past season, Czyz helped
lead the Jayhawks (43-25, 13-14 Big
12) to their rst Big 12 Conference
tournament title and an appear-
ance in the NCAA baseball tourna-
ment, their rst since 1993.
Czyz holds the Big 12 career mark
for appearances with 128. His 19
saves and 37 appearances this past
season are a Kansas single-season
record. He also holds KU career re-
cords for saves and appearances.
Last week, Czyz was selected in the

KANSAN STAFF WRITER
Te frst series of tests in Wescoe Hall began
last week to see if the building can be linked
to a series of cases of brain tumors within the
past eight years. Tese primary air sampling
tests started June 8 and continued on June 9
and 12.
John Neuberger, epidemiologist and prin-
ciple investigator, held a closed meeting with
about 30 concerned Wescoe Hall employees
June 7 to discuss the outline of the study and
answer questions they might have about it.
Te meeting was closed to ensure that the
people there could freely discuss health issues.
According to Neuberger, there have been at
least fve cases of brain tumors, both benign
and malignant.
Another sampling will be taken in the
fall or winter, according to a handout from
the meeting. The company doing the test-
ing will be testing for radon, volatile organic
compounds, carbon dioxide and mold, as
well as other chemicals. The tests will also
check the asbestos and lead content within
the building, as well as the electromagnetic
fields and air exchange velocity at certain
locations.
Kathleen McCluskey-Fawcett, senior Vice
Provost for Academic Afairs, said that the
University was responding to concerns from
faculty members.
Neuberger said that because the types of tu-
mors in question develop over long periods
of time, this should not
be an issue to students.
This situation, how-
ever, has proven of large
concern to many fac-
ulty members that have
spent years working in
their offices located in
Wescoe Hall.
Marjorie Swann, asso-
ciate professor of English,
said that in light of the
situation, she has moved out of her of ce and
works from home, visiting Wescoe Hall only
when necessary. She said that because she is
part of the faculty she has that option, but the
staf people like the custodial staf do not
have that choice. Swann said that it would be
optimal if all staf and faculty had the option
to be relocated, but said she understands there
is a space problem.
I take this very seriously, Swann said. I
think its fair to say that everyone in Wescoe is
now afraid.
According to Neuberger, the average sta-
tistic for brain cancer is 6.6 cases out of ev-
ery 10,000 people. So
far, there have been at
least fve reported cases
of brain tumors, three of
which occurred within
the past year. About 400
people have of ces in
Wescoe Hall.
We have absolutely
no reason to believe that
there are health-related
problems in Wescoe,
McCluskey-Fawcett said. But we do care
about our employees.
If the testing turned up anything to be
worried about, McCluskey-Fawcett said the
University would take immediate action.
It freaks me out a little bit, said Kelli
Teague, Belleplaine, junior. But since Im not
here as ofen as the teachers are, Im not per-
sonally concerned.
Im glad theyre investigating it, said An-
drew Ledbetter, Lawrence graduate student.
But Im not that freaked out.
Te testing process has two phases: the frst
is the air quality and electromagnetic testing,
and the second is an interview process with
those who either currently work in and have
worked in Wescoe Hall, and an inquiry about
their medical history.
McCluskey-Fawcett said the total cost for
the seven-month investigation would not be
determined until afer the lab sent the bills.
Although the fve cases have occurred in
people whose of ces were on the second and
thrid foors, Neuberger said that all foors will
be checked.
I think the University is responding quickly
and very responsibly, Swann said. I think
they are doing the right thing.

Speeding on by
A proposal by the traffic commission could increase
speed limit on portion of Sixth Street
By Tom SlaughTer
tslaughter@kansan.com
Kansan staff writer
Te speed limit on Sixth Street
heading west could change from
40 mph to 45 mph because of a
proposal by the Lawrence Trafc
Commission. Under the trafc
commissions recommendation,
the speed limit would become 45
mph at Monterey Way and stay at
that speed until city limits.
Te Kansas Department of
Transportation recommended to
the trafc commission that the
speed limit be set at an intersec-
tion instead of in the middle of a
street. According to trafc com-
missioner Robert Hagan, chang-
ing the speed limit in the middle
of a street would require more
signs and could be confusing for
drivers.
April Pinon, Topeka senior,
who works at Mariscos restau-
rant on Sixth Street and Waka-
rusa Drive, was happy about the
proposed increase. She makes
the drive west on Sixth Street to
get to work and said she usually
drives fve mph over the speed
limit anyway.
I would defnitely be for it,
Pinon said.
Te Kansas Department of
Transportation set up speed coun-
ters on Sixth Street, and found that
85 percent of the trafc passing
through was clocked going at or
below 48 mph. Teir recommenda-
tion was based of of this number.
According to David Woosley,
public works staf liaison for the
city, the new speed limit was recom-
mended at 45 mph because if the
number were lower, there would
be a greater chance at collisions be-
cause the majority of people are go-
ing above the speed limit anyway.
Hagan said that the street was de-
signed to accommodate vehicles
traveling at 45 mph.
Commercial development and
congestion in the area is the
basis of one argument against
the increase, so an increase in
speed isnt pertinent. However,
the only citizens that spoke up
on the subject were in favor of
a speed increase.
The traffic commission vot-
ed unanimously in favor of the
increase. The city commission
will discuss the matter in a two
to three weeks.
Kendra Jones, Lawrence se-
nior and employee of JB Stouts
Sports Bar & Grill, said she
thought the proposed speed in-
crease was a good idea, even in
the residential area affected by
the increase.
Its residential, but its not
like there are houses facing
Monterey, Jones said.

Nobody ever said cell phones were cheap. Paying for
a phone and the service required to use it is expected,
but trafc tickets for using one while driving? Te Law-
rence city commission might soon make that a reality.
In the coming weeks, city commissioners will
have to consider a controversial trafc safety propos-
al that would make it illegal to use cell phones while
driving, including the use of hands-free devices. If
approved, the decision would make Lawrences the
harshest cell phone ban in the nation.
Chris Wolfe, Topeka senior, needed only two
words to express his feelings on the matter.
Tats ridiculous, he said.
Wolfe said that he was against a full ban on cell
phones, but not necessarily one that banned hands-
free devices.
In a 5-4 vote June 5, the city trafc commission nar-
rowly gave its disapproval of the ban. Te trafc com-
mission doesnt make decisions for the city; they only
act as an advisory board for the city commission.
I cant be supportive of an all out ban on cell
phones, Jim Ziegelmeyer Jr., chairman of trafc
commission, said.
I think that the citizens feel strongly that this is
a bad ordinance, he said.
Close to a dozen local citizens and representatives for
Sprint and Cingular Wireless spoke at the meeting, which
lasted more than three hours at City Hall. Te majority
of the speakers expressed disdain for the proposal, citing
mostly the same reasons, respectively. Tey compared
using a cell phone to turning the dial on a car radio.
Sue Hack, vice mayor, echoed the sentiments of
many of the proposals opponents. She said that the
hands-free portion of the ordinance was harsh, and
would be difcult to enforce.
We already have ordinances that regulate inat-
tentive driving which would cover cell phone usage.
I would like to hear what the stafs recommenda-
tion is for increasing the fnes with regard to this
situation, but I would not support a total ban on cell
phones in Lawrence, Hack said.
Critics have questioned precisely how a police
ofcer would be expected to notice another driver
using a cell phone, particularly at night. Opponents
have also claimed that most drivers would probably
not pay attention to the ordinance.
Nathan Cox, Knoxville, Tenn., graduate student,
said he would not be opposed to an all-out ban.
Tere is something about talking on a cell
phone that is more distracting, he said.
Paul Atchley, associate professor of psychology, pro-
vided the committee with evidence in favor of a ban.
He studies cognitive perception and attention at KU.
Te body of research indicates that cell phone use
is just as dangerous as driving drunk, Atchley said.
Trafc commissioner Carol Jean Brune gave her
support for the ban.
Cell phone usage by a driver presents a hazard
that I would not want as a driver in the City of Law-
rence, Brune said.
According to Robert Hagan, trafc commission-
er, there was no specifc fne proposed for violating
the ordinance.

Tis summer, some newspaper kiosks
around campus will have more to ofer
students and faculty than just an empty
box and a quick refection. Te 2006 sum-
mer semester marks the frst summer in
which the Student Newspaper Readership
Program will be ofered.
Mark Hinshaw, regional marketing man-
ager for USA Today, said that this was an idea
that has been in the works for a while, and is
fnally being implemented this summer.
Tere will be eight operating kiosks
in high-trafc areas determined by the
Student Senate around campus: Green
Hall, Learned Hall, Fraser Hall, Watson
Library, Anschutz Library, Summerfeld
Hall and two at the Kansas Union.
Andrew Payne, Student Senate execu-
tive committee chair and Garden City se-
nior, said that this summer will serve as
a test run to see if the program is as suc-
cessful during the summer as it is during
the fall and spring semesters.
Were hoping theres as much of a
demand, Payne said. Were anticipating
there will be.
Te Student Newspaper Readership
Program provides four daily newspapers
Te New York Times, USA Today, Te
Kansas City Star and the Lawrence Jour-
nal-World for students at the cost of
$5 per student per semester, which is in-
cluded in the student fees. Students swipe
their KUID card in the machine and then
take whichever papers they want to read.
It helps with students knowledge of
current events, Payne said. Teachers
also use them in classes.
Te funding for the programs sum-
mer expansion is being provided by funds
lefover from the fee that students paid
each fall and spring semester since 2001,
the frst year of the program. According to
Payne, the total amount spent on the pro-
gram in 2005 was $160,000. Hinshaw said
the summer program should cost around
$11,000.
Molly Kocour, former chair of the
Newspaper Readership Advisory Board
for Student Senate and Lawrence gradu-
ate student, said she thought it was a great
way to educate students and keep them
up to date on whats going on both lo-
cally and nationally, as well as providing
a cheaper alternative to buying a newspa-
per subscription.
Nick Sterner, former student body presi-
dent, and Shawnee senior, said that in the
summer, students are much more detached
than in the fall and spring semesters.
If we promote it a little, I think it will
turn into something students will use,
Sterner said. I think its going to be a
good little program.
Molly Bauer, Palatine, Ill. senior, just
recently realized the papers were being
ofered during the summer semester.
I thought it was a good idea, Bauer
said, so people know whats going on
around here.
Bret Brown, Shawnee junior, is also
pleased with the new development.
Actually, I feel good about it, Brown said.
I read the paper three to four times a week.
Hinshaw said that he and some repre-
sentatives from his company would visit
the campus on June 15 and 16 to help pro-
mote the summer program and ofer help
to those who might not know how to use
the machines.

Te landlords of a Lawrence house
where a University of Kansas freshman
fell from a second-story landing and
sufered major injuries in 2004 are be-
ing sued by the girls family.
According to an article in the Law-
rence Journal-World, the lawsuit fled
on behalf of Sara Anne Driessel by her
family alleges that the house, 1045
Tennessee St., was not up to building
codes, and that the owners of the house
should have been aware of the buildings
party house status where underage
drinking was a common occurrence.
Te suit was fled against the own-
ers of the house David and Misti Jones
two weeks ago in Douglas County
District Court.
According to the article, the lawsuit
also mentioned the Jones son, Kyle, and
stated that he held a party at that house
the night Driessel fell.
David Jones was unwilling to com-
ment about the lawsuit in detail.
One thing he said, however, was that
he didnt know where the party house
allegation came from.
Ours is probably the least of the
party houses on the street, Jones said.
According to the article, police said
that Driessel had gone out a second-
foor window and onto the walk-out
roof to smoke in the early morning in
2004. Tere was no railing around the
landing, nor was the window to the out-
side sealed. Afer the fall she was fown
to the University of Kansas Hospital,
3901 Rainbow Boulevard, Kansas City,
KS.
Driessel has still been unable to walk
or speak since the accident in 2004. Te
suit was fled on behalf of Sara by her
mother, Beth Driessel.
Te Driessel family was unable to be
reached for comment.

NEWS WEDNESDAY, JUNE 14, 2006 THE UNIVERSITY DAILY KANSAN 7
Our son, Joseph Daniel Petermann was 21 years
old. He was born September 4, 1984 and passed away
at home on May 28, 2006. He grew up in Chicago and
Arlington Heights, Ill., with his 2 loving brothers, Jef-
frey (19) and Daniel (17). Joes large extended family
of grandparents, many aunts, uncles, cousins, and long
time friend, Haley Kidney mourn his loss with us.
Joe enjoyed his brothers company and was proud of
them and their individual unique talents; Jefs free spirit
and creativity and Dans academic and musical talents.
Tey had grown into a chosen friendship with each other;
as a parent it was beautiful to watch. Talking with each
other and Joes many friends we found out that we all had
special private moments with Joe and many just in the week
before he passed away. We consider these moments gifs
from God.
Joe had a beautiful wide smile and
a funny sense of humor; he could re-
ally make me laugh. He loved to
travel and enjoyed the serenity of the
ocean. He was bright and had just
earned a 4.0 GPA for this past semes-
ter and a 3.63 overall; he took pride
in achieving his good grades. Joe was
sensitive to others and was consider-
ing graduate school in psychology.
He had many friends from
grammar school, Rolling Mead-
ows High School and KU. Tey all
remember him as being fun, caring
and that he got along with everyone. Joe enjoyed Te
Chicago White Sox, Texas hold-em, ultimate frisbee,
the Arlington Race Track, Seinfeld, the History channel
and recently jogging with Spike, the family dog.
He studied abroad with his good friend Dave and
a couple other KU classmates in Australia from June
2005 to December 2005; he traveled around that coun-
try and Fiji and just enjoyed the trip immensely. He
was in awe of the beautiful scenery, the people and the
shooting stars. He made many friends on that trip from
around the world, had kept in contact with them, and
had hoped to meet up with them again.
Joe loved KU from the time he visited the campus, his
many friends, his classes, and following the sports teams,
especially the basketball team. He would gather with his
friends and call home just to make sure we were watch-
ing the games. Joe was a proud and enthusiastic fan.
We love Joseph so very much and miss him deeply.
Our family is not complete without him and he will re-
main in our hearts and prayers forever.
I want to share with everyone that approximately 25
KU friends came in for Joes wake and funeral. Tey
brought pictures and made posters at our home. Each of
them embraced Joes brothers, his dad, and myself, and
shared with all of us their fond memories of Joe. Tey too
are grieving the loss of Joe, their friend and brother.
Our family was overwhelmed by the love, sensitivity and
dear expressions of kindness shown to us by Joes KU friends.
Tey helped us to get to know
the KU side of Joe better. Teir
willingness to help us whether it
was cleaning up, making posters,
sharing memories, crying with us
or giving us all a lot of hugs and
kisses, was so amazing I cant even
put it into words.
I wish I could tell each of
their parents what wonderful
children they have. Tey can be
extremely proud of their chil-
dren for their warmth and lov-
ing sensitivity. I can certainly
understand why Joe loved them
all so very much. KU can be proud to have these young
people at their school.
I think Joe would want all his friends from home and
KU to take pride in their schoolwork, take time to enjoy
each other and their lives, and remember that those little
acts of kindness and a simple smile can mean so much.
I along with my husband, John, and our children,
Jef and Dan, want to thank Joes KU friends from the
bottom of our hearts for all that they did and continue
to do for us and for the time they spent with us last
week. Tey are truly Beautiful Human Beings.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

KANSAN STAFF WRITER
It only took 45 minutes
to trust Joe Petermann, over
the phone and well enough
for Julie Sommerhauser to
agree to let Petermann live
with her. Te two had never
met in person,
Last December, Som-
merhauser, Wichita senior,
needed a roommate, Pe-
termann had just returned
from Australia where he had been studying abroad
and he needed a place to live. Sommerhausers
landlord recommended Petermann, a former ten-
ant, to her. Petermann and Sommerhauser spoke
on the phone and he moved in a week later.
Tats just the kind of person he was, Som-
merhauser said, Teres an electricity he gives of.
I liked him immediately.
Petermann, Arlington Heights, Ill., senior passed
away May 28 at his parents home in the Chicago
suburb. He was going to take classes this summer.
Dave Maul, St. Louis senior and Petermanns
best friend, said that Petermann was the type of
guy that met diferent people all the time.
He could walk into a party by himself and go
up to a complete stranger and start a conversation,
Maul said. He could make friends with anyone.
Sommerhauser said Petermann made friends
without trying, She described a time at Abe and Jakes
Landing when Petermann approached a group of KU
basketball players to get them to buy him a drink.
We thought theyd think he was a loser and tell him
to leave them alone, Sommerhauser said. He just went
over there with his wide smile and the next thing we
knew, they were buying his drinks.
Sommerhauser said Petermann was always smiling.
Petermann was an avid sports fan, especially
of KU sports and the Chicago White Sox. He also
enjoyed playing poker with friends and at the ca-
sinos. He would go to the casinos in Kansas City,
Mo., afer class if he felt like it.
He once played poker with Sommerhauser us-
ing crayons as chips because she didnt want to
lose any money.
He wanted me to be a part of his life, and for me
to do that, he didnt make me play for real money,
Sommerhauser said. Hed conform to me.
She went on to say that Petermann never forced
anyone to do what they didnt want to do whether
it was going out on a school night or playing cards
for money. He adapted to his friends.
Maul described Petermann, a psychology ma-
jor, as the party guy who always got good grades,
maintaining a 4.0 GPA last semester.
Sommerhauser said Petermann really enjoyed his
classes and that psychology came naturally to him.
Petermann never went to the library, but sat with a
book on the couch. Even with his success in college,
he never spoke about the future with his friends.
He didnt have any goals to be rich, Sommer-
hauser said. He just lived life, He really did live
life to the fullest and he only lived to be 21, He did
everything he wanted to do.
Funeral services were held on June 1, in Arling-
ton Heights, Ill. Maul said about 20 of Petermanns
friends from KU and about 10 from Chicago at-
tended the service. Te extent of his death is still
unknown,

Westbound Clinton Parkway turned
into a parking lot with a tailgate party
Tursday afernoon, the frst day of the
2006 Wakarusa Music Festival. Tat
didnt stall the fun for the rest of the fes-
tival though.
Vehicles jammed the two-lane street
all the way from Wakarusa Boulevard to
the festivals entrance, taking up to fve
hours to move through it all.
People stepped out of their cars to pass
the time by playing Hacky Sack, throwing
footballs and Frisbees, riding long-boards
down the deserted eastbound lane, drink-
ing beer and anything else they could to
distract them from the trying situation.
Nate Stedman, Overland Park junior,
sat on the streets curb, taking in the hot
sun with a cold beer in his hand, some-
thing he called a necessity.
Im just dealing with it, he said. I
knew there would be a wait, not this long
though.
Meghan McRilhey from Boulder,
Colo., said the trafc made sense based
on her previous experiences.
Its typical of any festival, she said. I
have friends whove waited up to 32 hours
to get in.
Nearly everyone kept a good attitude,
even the ones having extra trouble with
the trafc, like Dave Mills from Neder-
land, Colo. His car stalled at the foot of
a hill, so he had to gather people to help
push his car when the line moved. Mills
didnt complain, except about the heat.
Its hot, he said, but not too bad.
Cole Pranger from Fayetteville, Ark.,
was one of the people who helped Mills
push the car. He said he did it in the spirit
of the festival.
Wakarusa is all about helping people,
he said.
Other stories of strife include one from
Al Sullivan, a Toledo, Ohio, resident. She
was near the front of the line with her
friends when their cars gas gauge passed
the empty line. She was forced to walk
with a gas can to the gas station on the
corner of Wakarusa Boulevard and Clin-
ton Parkway, flling it up at the station.
Te walk wasnt too bad, she said. At
least Ive got a cigarette, but its damn hot
out here.
Although the wait was slightly enjoy-
able for many, it was enduring for Jef
Simcox and his daughter Elise from Lock-
port, Ill.
I demand that your chief of police
get fred, Simcox said jokingly. Wrigley
Field holds 38,000 people and you can be
in and out in 30 minutes. With all the Jay-
hawk games, this town should be use to
crowds like this.
Te two were frustrated with the wait
because they arrived at 11 a.m. Tey said
they thought there would be plenty of
time to set up camp and see one of their
favorite bands, Wood Box Gang, which
took the stage about fve and half hours
later. Tey said they werent sure whether
they would make it.
Tank God I peed at Wal-Mart be-
fore I came, he said.
As much of a party as the trafc
jammed seemed to be, it was merely a
mild get-together compared to the atmo-
sphere inside the festival.
Te great thing is you can camp out
as much as you want and see shows when-
ever you want, theres always something
going on, Brandon Schafer, Hays junior,
said. It was nutty.
One of the most popular spots of the fes-
tival was shakedown street, where vendors
set up their shops. Schafer said it was also a
popular spot for drug deals.
Wakarusa is the easiest time to get any-
thing you want drug wise, he said.
He said people would come up to him
as he walked through the grounds and of-
fer him doses, chocolates, x and nuggets,
euphemisms for acid, mushrooms, ecstacy
and marijuana. Even though he saw police
ofcers, one time with night vision goggles,
he was not discouraged from smoking mar-
ijuana wherever and whenever he wanted
to.
I still had a solid time and had no prob-
lems with the law enforcement, maybe its
because Im not a hippie, Schafer said.
As for the music, Schafer said they love
to jam, you couldnt help not to dance.

Tursday at sundown we arrived at camp. Near the
treeline of the intersection of Crazy Lane and Fourth
streets at Campground One were two familiar cars
and several tents. Earlier in the day, our friends waited
in a queue of cars for seven hours to stake our claim
on the vast feld of withered grass and dirt. Cars from
as far as New Jersey formed a grid of makeshif road-
ways. Anyone from a solo festivalgoer in a pup tent
next to a Subaru Outback, to a fock of hippies com-
plete with Volkswagon busses huddled under crudely
constructed sunshades, composed the thousands of
campsites at the Wakarusa Music Festival.
Music coming from surrounding campsites was
slightly drowned out by the distant sounds from stages
that were blocks away. As some people slept in prepa-
ration for a long next day, others roamed the camp-
ground selling a vast array of drugs to plenty of eager
and experienced buyers. Occasionally freworks or a
wild scream pierced air and brought the masses to at-
tention. Tis happened all weekend long.
Its a way of life for some people. An entire
subculture dedicated to traveling from festival to
festival for as much of the year as they can. Aged
hippies from generations past mingle with a new
breed of youth who embrace the lifestyle with ev-
ery penny of their disposable incomes.
Everyone is there for one reason; to have fun.
Tere is no better excuse to go camping with
your friends. Te atmosphere bursts with energy
and beams of love. Tousands and thousands of
people, many of them drinking excessively or ex-
perimenting with mind-blowing cocktails of drugs
living a relatively safe and orderly environment. Its
amazing chaos doesnt break loose on the hour.
But with so many people trying to live outside for
four days without all the accommodations of modern
society, it gets messy. One of the worst things about
festivals are the piles of trash we leave behind. When a
show ends everyone gets up and leaves, not always tak-
ing with them what they brought, expecting someone
else to clean up their mess. Te number of cigarette
butts littering the ground rivals the number of stars in
the sky. Why are we OK with this?
Something with such magnifcent drawing
power as a music festival should take it upon it-
self to spread a message of environmental aware-
ness. If we keep mindlessly trashing our planet, we
wont be having music festivals for much longer.
I cant say Im innocent of absentmindedly littering,
but I try hard not to. I pocket my cigarette butts.
Music festivals are growing bigger and bigger
every year. And as they grow it would be wise to
do more to encourage environmental stewardship,
and conditioning festivalgoers to be more aware
of the impact we all have on our environment. If
everybody were to make a point just to clean up
their own mess, wed be on the right path.
We can keep having these wonderful, crazy
events for years to come if we keep one thing in
mind: leave only your footprints.

Tey called it Shakedown Street. A block-
long Wakarusa Music Festival homage to the
Grateful Dead, where vendors were peddling to-
bacco pipes and purses; some were selling prod-
ucts of another variety. At frst glance, it wouldnt
seem like the most family-friendly venue.
Yet tucked away in the farthest parking lot
west, somewhere between Stage 3 and Topeka,
were families using skewers and playing Fris-
bee, enduring four days of Kansas heat while
trying to spend some quality time with the
family.
Marsha and Tony Nicholson arrived early Fri-
day morning from Chicago, with their 2-year old
daughter Tia. Tis was their frst time attending
the festival. Tey sold iced cofee out of their tent,
and went into Lawrence to soak up the atmo-
sphere. Tey said that the festival designated an
area specifcally for families.
God has provided us with a pleasant ex-
perience so far, Tony said.
Jason and Allison Meredith, of Des
Moines, Iowa, traveled for almost four hours
with their children.
Jason said that he had attended various
music festivals, and Wakarusa did a good job
of accommodating for families.
Te family camping area had its own bath-
room and water area. Buses from the venue gates
to the campground ran around the clock. While
the families were secluded from the venue, it was
still possible to hear noise from the stages. Ed Pul-
ver, who was there with his wife Diana to see the
show with their grandchildren, said the overall
operation could have done a better job of keeping
families and the rest of the fans separated. Tey
said that families in the camping area were inter-
acting with one another, and that their grandchil-
dren had become friendly with children of other
families.
Despite the carnival nature of the festival
and the drug culture that surrounds it, fami-
lies didnt express major worries about their
children being tainted by the atmosphere.
Sometimes I worry about people that are
mean or bigoted, Mary McNamara said. She
said that most fans werent overt about their
drug use, and her children were young enough
that they werent completely aware of the drugs.

Trying to cool down from the 90 de-
gree heat, Jay Rosendahl stood inside his
tent showcasing and informing people
about his rock, gem and jewelry collec-
tion and jewelry from his commom-law
wife, Carrie. All the way from San Diego,
Calif., Rosendahl drove to Lawrence for
the Wakarusa Music Festival.
Not only did he come to take part in
the festivities, but Rosendahl sells rocks,
gems and jewelry across the nation. He
said he constantly attends gem and min-
eral shows, along with concert festivals
such as Wakarusa.
Rosendahl became passionate about
rocks and gems when someone gave him
his frst crystal when he was 18 years old.
From then on, he said he was hooked.
He started collecting rocks and gems,
and flled many cardboard boxes with
them. He didnt know what to do with all
of his rocks and gems, but soon knew the
answer.
Sell them, Rosendahl said. Its like
fnding homes for puppies.
Rosendahl started his rock business in
a parking lot, selling directly out of a brief-
case. Now, he constantly travels with Car-
rie whose last name he asked to keep
anonymous selling his rocks and gems,
and her jewelry.
Rosendahl said he likes the theory of
a frst-name basis, instead of a last name.
He compared his theory to those who
dont use a last name, such as Madonna.
He thinks its a common theory among
festival goers.
Most people dont use last names be-
cause it shows lineage. We dont care where
people come from, Rosendahl said.
In addition to collecting and selling
rocks and gems, he makes his own jewel-
ry. Rosendahl uses a peyote stitch, which
creates a fat piece of bead work, for all of
his jewelry. He wears his jewelry around
his dreadlocks, which he has had for nine
and a half years.
Hanging inside of his tent were blue,
white, red, green and yellow fags, known
as prayer Tibetan Flags. Te same San-
skrit, an ancient Indic language, of prayers
for peace is printed on each fag. Te
theory behind the fags is as their threads
fall apart, the wind takes them away and a
persons prayers come true.
Rosendahl says he doesnt wholly believe
in one religion, but takes diferent things
from each of them. However, there is one
thing that he doesnt agree with, and that is
the cross. He said he would rather remem-
ber Christ as a teacher and not a martyr
who was killed.
I dont remember Bob Marley as an
infected foot, why would I want to re-
member Christ with death, he said.
Rosendahls rock, gem and jewelry
collection contains various pieces from
around the world. His prices range from 25
cents to $1,000. All are made of diferent
materials, with diferent shapes and sizes.
Te cobalt calcite stone normally
changes from a gray color to blue when
the stone absorbs light, however Rosend-
ahl had a few that turned a Barbie Pink
instead, for unknown reasons.
Tats what I like about rocks. If you
dont know what it is, then its just a rock,
but when you fnd out, youre like whoa!
Tats cool.

Six Kansas Track and Field
athletes became All-Ameri-
cans at last weekends NCAA
outdoor championships at
Sacramento State University.
To become an All-American,
one must fnish in the top
eight or among the top eight
American competitors in their
respective events. Seniors Shel-
don Battle, Charisse Bacchus,
Cameron Schwehr and Denita
Young and sophomores Egor
Agafonov and Paul Heferon
did exactly that.
Overall, we did very
well, Bacchus said. People
did things they werent ex-
pected to do. It shows that
hard work pays of.
Battle became an All-
American for the sixth time by
qualifying in shot put, ham-
mer throw and weight throw
at diferent points through out
his two-year career at KU. His
throw of 64 feet 9 1/4 inches in
the shot put placed him ffh in
this years outdoor champion-
ships. Battle became an All-
American in both the shot put
and the weight throw at last
springs NCAA indoor cham-
pionships in Fayetteville, Ark.
Bacchus became a two-
time All-American last
weekend when she fnished
seventh in the womens long
jump fnals with a jump of
20 feet 8 inches. Her prelim-
inary jump of 21 feet 6 1/4
inches was a personal best.
I felt that there were big-
ger things to come, but then
I got injured, Bacchus said
referring to an injury she suf-
fered on her third jump in the
fnals. She could not com-
plete her last three jumps.
Bacchus earned All-Amer-
ica status this past spring at
the indoor championships.
Schwehr missed qualifying
for the fnals in the 1,500 meter
run, but became an All-Amer-
ica by fnishing among the top
eight Americans. His time of
3:45.16 placed him in 13th
place, .08 seconds from quali-
fying for the fnals. He is an All-
American for the frst time.
Young concluded her career
at KU as an All-American with
a throw of 158 feet 7 inches in
the javelin. Tis honor was
the second for Young, her frst
coming at the 2001 outdoor
championships as a member
of the University of Tennessee
Track and Field Team.
Heferon became an All-
American for the fst time.
He placed 14th in the fnals
of the 5,000 meter with a
time of 14:28.37. Heferon
qualifed as one of the top
eight Americans in that feld.
Its an honor, but in all
honesty, its not quite the thrill
I thought it would be, maybe
it hasnt sunk in yet, Heferon
said. I hold myself to a really
high standard, I thought of a
million things I could have
done better afer the race.
Agafonov became a two-
time All-American in only his
frst season on the KU track
team when he fnished ffh
in the hammer throw with a
toss of 219 feet 3 inches. Aga-
fonov earned All-America
honors afer fnishing second
in the weight throw at the in-
door championships this past
spring.
Juniors Josh Kirk, Abby
Emsick and Cody Roberts and
Freshman Zlata Tarasova com-
peted at the outdoor champi-
onships, but did not qualify for
All-America status. Kirk was
forced to pull out of the mens
decathlon afer reaggravating a
foot injury. Emsick and Roberts
both fnished out of contention
in the discus. Tarasova did not
qualify for the fnals in the
womens hammer throw.
Te KU mens team fn-
ished tied for 30th place
while the womens team fn-
ished in a tie for 64th. Flor-
ida State captured the mens
team title while Auburn fn-
ished frst for the womens
team title.

Te Big 12 Conference basketball tournaments
will return to Kansas City, Mo., in 2008 afer a two-
year layof. Last years tournament was in Dallas and
this seasons tournament will be in Oklahoma City.
Kansas City was the permanent home for the
Big 8 Conference tournaments before it expand-
ed to the Big 12 afer the 1996 season. It was the
host for the frst six Big 12 tournaments.
Many in Kansas City and Lawrence are pleased
to see the tournament return to the area. Kansas
City Mayor Kay Barnes is among the supporters.
Im very excited about the Big 12 tournament
returning to Kansas City in 2008, Barnes said by
phone from her ofce in Kansas City. Its going
to be great to have the women and men playing at
wonderful arenas within easy walking distance from
one another with a great entertainment district in
between. Its going to be a terrifc Big 12 festival.
Jim Marchiony, Kansas associate athletics director,
said the athletics department is delighted the tourna-
ments are returning to Kansas City. He also said the
department thought that Kansas City should be the
permanent home for the conference tournament.
I think if you polled the coaches in the
league, they would tell you the same, Marchio-
ny said. Kansas City is a terrifc site for the Big
12, Te fan support is great, the city really gets
behind the tournament. Dallas was a good host
city, but there wasnt as much fan support.
Bob Burda, associate Big 12 conference commis-
sioner, echoed similar sentiments to Marchionys.
Dallas is a pro-sports market, Burda said.
Teres no rich history of hosting collegiate
athletic events. Kansas City has a rich tradition
of hosting big time college events.
Burda said making Kansas City the permanent
home for the Big 12 tournament was a possibility. Te
conference will take a wait-and-see attitude until afer
the tournament to gauge how the new Sprint Center
holds the event. Conference athletics directors and
university presidents would then vote on whether to
make Kansas City the permanent location.
Te tournament can economically beneft the

Doing a dunk for kids
nba beats nhl hands down
By Jack Weinstein
jweinstein@kansan.com
Kansan staff writer
Kansas coach Bill Self addressed a
big huddle when he spoke to a group
of 700 campers on Sunday afernoon
at Allen Fieldhouse. Te boys, rang-
ing in age from 8 to 19, listened to
Self speak about having a good time
and following the rules. Self s annual
summer camp, kicked of Sunday
and runs through Tursday at 16
gyms throughout Lawrence.
Even though the campers can require
as much efort to coach as his Jayhawks,
he said both were easy.
Te challenges with some young
campers is they want to try to do
whats right, but physically they cant
quite do it yet, Self said. Te chal-
lenge with our players is that they can
do it, but sometimes they wont do it
the exact way a coach would expect
them to do it, For one week, Id say the
campers are easier to coach, but if you
had the campers for a whole year, you
may change your mind about that.
Junior guard Russell Robinson
said the campers were receptive to
what the players had to say.
Teyre big fans, they listen,
they watch us all the time and
whenever they get a chance to ac-
tually see us and communicate
with us, its good, Robinson said,
Teyre open, Some kids their age
think they know it all, but theyre
open to what we have to say and they
respond well to us.
Self said desire was a big part of
why the kids were there.
Te reason kids come to camp
is they want to be around ball, Self
said. Hopefully they want to be
coached and be corrected.
Asked to describe his teaching
style with the campers, Sophomore
forward Julian Wright said his style
had two sides.
I kind of
have a balance
between be-
ing serious and
joking with the
kids, Wright
said, You cant
be too serious,
sometimes kids
wont listen, If
you joke too
much they wont
take you serious-
ly, I think thats
key in terms of
helping kids out, You try to have a
little fun, laugh, crack a joke or two,
but also be serious when its time to
be serious.
A fan favorite, Wright gets spe-
cials requests from the campers,
Everyone wants me to do a 360
dunk, he said.
Wright said he enjoyed both put-
ting on a show for the kids and helping
them become better basketball players.
Wright said he enjoyed working
with the campers.
I like it, he said. Its a chance to
give back and give advice.

As Ive watched the NBA play-
ofs, six months and counting, I got
to thinking about the prospects of an
NBA franchise coming to Kansas City,
Mo. Ten, afer talking with my Rus-
sian friend, Drago Gorbachev, about
the NHL playofs, the notion of an
NHL franchise crept into my mind.
Te reason Im pondering another
professional franchise making its way
to the City of Fountains is because of
the Sprint Center. Te Sprint Cen-
ter, is expected to revitalize Kansas
City. Te Big Fone, a nickname sure
to take of, will almost certainly bring
a new team to the area.
Its unlikely that a team will be in
place by the time the Big Fone opens
in the Fall of 2007, but one will come.
So thats why I along with my friend
Drago will fgure out what is the best
choice for the Kansas City Metro area. I
think by 2020, according to some mad
social scientist Hugh Downs, Lawrence
will be a part of the Kansas City Metro.
Ill cut right to the chase, Im a hoops
guy. I love college basketball, I really like
the NBA and Im in a WNBA fantasy
league. (Te We Love Kendra Weck-
ers are struggling right now). Im all
for the NBA calling Kansas City home
again. Again? For those of you born
post-1985, the Kings resided in K.C. for
13 years before moving to Sac-Town.
My boy Drago though, well, if you
couldnt already tell by the name, ste-
reotypes be damned, hes a hockey
guy. In his Eastern European drawl,
he tells me, Fred, vat are you tink-
ing? Ze NHL vould crush de NBA!
In a one-on-one fst fght, sure,
maybe. But I think the entourage
factor gives the NBA a slight edge.
While NHL tough guy Tie Domi may
knock out Detroit Pistons strongman
Ben Wallace initially, Bens barber, his
7th grade best friend and the woman
who braids his hair brandishing a bag
of nickels would fnally get the last
laugh. COMBAT EDGE NBA.
Drago says, Okay, okay, Ill geev
dat to de hoopers, but de hockey
players look better den de hoopers.
No contest. When it comes to who
looks better, its Communist Bloc ver-
sus Hip-Hop. Missing Fronts versus
Gold Fronts. Cold Streams versus
Bling-Bling. Te NBA wins this in a
landslide. With the NBAs new dress
code, players looked sharp while still
maintaining that urban vibe. Hockey
players, sure some of them dress nice,
but missing teeth? Grills may not be for
everybody, but at least theyre some-
thing. APPEARANCE EDGE NBA
Drago is very disheartened afer los-
ing that argument. His once proud, I
just killed Apollo Creed moment is
now swinging wildly as he looks for any
edge the NHL might have. Wearily, he
mumbles, Ze hockey iz for everybody,
ze people here in de Midvest vill love ze
game and its speed and action, no?
Okay, Drago, Ill give you that. Te
speed and action of hockey is unlike
any other sport. Guys fying around
on skates a la Nancy Kerrigan, pre-Jef
Gilooly, smashing each other into the
boards and the fghts. Yes, the fghts.
No team sport has fghts. Actually
Te NBA does have fghts. Tough
they not only fght each other in the
NBA, they fght the fans. Youre sit-
ting in the Big Fone and you get this
unmistakable urge to pelt Kobe Bry-
ant with a hot dog. Imagine the melee
that would ensue. Of course youd get
your brains beat out, but youd be all
over SportsCenter. Hockey cant say
that.
Drago is now ecstatic about the
idea of the NBA coming to Kansas
City, and so am I. Stay tuned for
when we break down the movie rat-
ing system. Tumbs are for suckers!

Wednesday, june 14, 2006 the university daily kansan 15
By Shawn Shroyer
sshroyer@kansan.com
Kansan staff writer
Te Kansas baseball team entered
the 2006 season set on fnishing in the
top half of the Big 12 and reaching its
frst NCAA Regional in 12 years.
Led by a group of determined
seniors who ignored outside expec-
tations, Kansas tied for ffh out of
10 teams in the conference during
the regular season, won the Big 12
Championship and earned a bid to
the Corvallis, Ore., Regional.
If you would have told me earlier
in the year that Kansas University was
going to win the Big 12 tournament, I
wouldnt have laughed at you, but I prob-
ably wouldnt have believed you, senior
outfelder Matt Baty said. To see where
the program has come in the four years
and to be a part of it and then go out with
a bang has been an absolute privilege.
Preseason
Te Jayhawks triumphant season
was unanticipated by some in the Big
12 before the season began. On Jan.
24, Big 12 coaches released their pre-
season poll and picked Kansas to tie
for eighth place in the conference.
Kansas baseball has been so bad
for the last 10 years, if I was a person
that decided the polls, I wouldnt put
us up there either, Baty said.
non-conference schedule
Kansas non-conference schedule
included fve teams that reached the
NCAA tournament in 2005 Stan-
ford, Southern California, Clemson,
Wichita State and Creighton. Stanford
was the frst of these fve that Kansas
faced and the Jayhawks took the se-
ries, winning the frst two games of
the three-game set.
Senior outfelder Gus Milner and se-
nior closer Don Czyz were recognized
for their eforts in the series. Milner was
named Co-National Player of the Week
by CollegiateBaseballInsider.com and
Big 12 Player of the Week, while Czyz
was named Big 12 Pitcher of the week.
Overall, Kansas went 5-5 against
non-conference opponents that reached
the 2005 NCAA tournament. In ad-
dition, fve of Kansas non-conference
foes Clemson, Vanderbilt, San Diego,
Wichita State and Stanford reached
the NCAA tournament in 2006. Clem-
son was the overall No. 1 seed and is
in the College World Series in Omaha,
Neb. Kansas went 6-5 against non-con-
ference opponents that reached this
years NCAA tournament.
conference schedule
Kansas began conference play
against three of the fve Big 12 teams
that reached the 2005 NCAA tour-
nament Baylor, Nebraska and Mis-
souri in consecutive weekends.
Kansas went 1-4 in its frst fve Big 12
games, but a victory in the fnal game of
the Nebraska series gave the team mo-
mentum that it carried throughout the
remainder of the season. Beginning with
that victory, Kansas went 8-5 in its next
13 conference games and 15-6 overall.
Te Jayhawks then hit a roadblock
that threatened to end their season
prematurely. Te next two weekends,
Kansas faced the two remaining Big
12 teams that reached the 2005 NCAA
tournament Oklahoma and Texas.
Kansas salvaged the Oklahoma series
with a Sunday victory, but was swept by
Texas. In the Jayhawk Classic the fol-
lowing weekend, Kansas lost back-to-
back games to Northern Colorado.
Kansas completed the regular sea-
son strong at home, though, sweep-
ing Texas A&M in three games. Afer
facing six Big 12 teams that would
make the 2006 NCAA tournament,
the Jayhawks headed into the Big 12
Championship tournament with a
full head of steam.
big 12 chamPionshiP
Te Jayhawks opened the tour-
nament with a 7-2 victory against
the Sooners and moved on to beat
Oklahoma State 11-6. With a trip to
the championship game on the line,
Kansas took on Missouri next, which
was also 2-0 in the tournament.
Te Jayhawks overcame a late-in-
ning surge by the Tigers to win 4-3 and
prepared to play Nebraska for the Big
12 Championship. Kansas dominated
Nebraska for most of the game behind
the strong pitching of freshman lefy
Nick Czyz and led 8-2 at one point.
Nick allowed only three hits in
5.1 innings, but his older brother
Don had to come in with Nebraska
threatening to steal the victory. As
hed done all season, Don sealed the
9-7 victory for Kansas with a save.
Baty earned Big 12 Championship
Tournament MVP honors afer hit-
ting .421 with two home runs, three
RBI and fve runs. Sophomores Erik
Morrison and Ryne Price were named
to the All-Tournament team along
with Baty.
It was pretty awesome because,
with my injury, I was told that I wasnt
going to be playing at all the rest of
the year, said Baty, who sufered a
lacerated spleen and kidney in Kan-
sas fourth weekend of action. To be
able to come back and be player of the
tournament, thats just an unbeliev-
able accomplishment. But its not an
individual award, its a KU baseball
award.
ncaa tournament
Kansas was rewarded for its Big 12
title with a No. 2 seed in the Corval-
lis Regional, hosted by Oregon State,
and the Jayhawks headed into their
frst NCAA regional in 12 years on a
seven-game win streak.
Hawaii was the frst opponent
Kansas faced in the regional and the
Jayhawks pulled themselves out of
an early 5-0 hole to win 9-6. Senior
infelder Jared Schweitzer led the
Jayhawks on ofense, hitting for the
cycle, and Czyz came in to record his
NCAA-leading 19th save.
Te victory would be Kansas only
of the regional as it fell to Oregon
State in its next game 11-3 and in a
rematch with Hawaii 9-5. Schweitzer
was named to the Corvallis All-Re-
gional Team afer batting .583 with
two home runs, four runs and four
RBI. Oregon State ultimately won the
regional and is in the College World
Series.
Kansas (43-25) ended the 2006
season with the second-most wins in
school history and put itself back on
the national scene for the frst time in
more than a decade.
I always dreamed of being a part
of something special, Baty said.
Tats the reason why I chose KU.
Postseason
Even with its 2006 season in the
books, Kansas continued to make
headlines.
Don Czyz, whose 19 saves are
still the most in the nation, was rec-
ognized as a Louisville Slugger First
Team All-American, a College Base-
ball Foundation All-American and
the NCBWA Stopper of the Year.
Hes a great young man and hes
worked his tail of, coach Price
said. I really believe that if he stays
healthy, hell pitch in the big leagues
some day.
Don Czyz, junior lef-hander Sean
Land, Milner, senior shortstop Ritchie
Price, Schweitzer and senior right-
hander Kodiak Quick were all selected
in the 2006 MLB Amateur Draf and
senior right-hander Ricky Fairchild
was signed to a free agent contract.
To have seven players sign pro
contracts in a year which is the
most in school history I think it
makes a statement that Kansas is on
the rise and were a legitimate Top 25
program, coach Price said.
When it came All-Big 12 selection
time, six Jayhawks received recogni-
tion. Czyz and Schweitzer were named
All-Big 12 First Team. Milner, Ritchie
Price and sophomore outfelder John
Allman were named All-Big 12 Sec-
ond Team. Quick was an All-Big 12
Honorable Mention.

ARIES
(March 21-April 19)
HHHH Pressure builds as
you experience a diversity of
options. You might not want to
do something differently, but
you will anyway. Not every
cookie crumbles as you would
like. Learn to adjust with lifes
vicissitudes.
Tonight: Calm down slowly.
TAURUS
(April 20-May 20)
HHH You could feel as if you
are in a pressure cooker. With
everything that is happening,
you might need to rethink your
ideas, especially those con-
cerning family and work. No,
you might not be able to do ev-
erything all at once.
Tonight: Do only what you
must.
GEMINI
(May 21-June 20)
HHHH You have a lot to han-
dle, and you will with time and
organization. The issue you run
across is that everyone wants
something from you. Extremes
easily could exhaust you.
Know when to say that enough
is enough.
Tonight: Take an overview.
CANCER
(June 21-July 22)
HHHHWork with others and
get to the bottom of a problem.
Take time to relate to each in-
dividual rather than rush from
person to person. You need to
get to the bottom of a problem.
Money matters could be con-
troversial.
Tonight: Togetherness works.
LEO
(July 23-Aug. 22)
HHH Others want to run with
the ball. You arent in a position
to stop them either. The smart
Lion will let those around them
have their head. You could be
more cantankerous and dif-
fcult than you have been in a
while.
Tonight: Say yes.
VIRGO
(Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
HH You might be too tired and
withdrawn. Take care of your-
self. You know much more than
you are willing to let on. What
might be advisable is to keep your
opinions and thoughts to yourself.
Avoid making decisions.
Tonight: Vanish while you can.

LIBRA
(Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
HHHH You could be sorely
disappointed by someone you
count on. Consider that others
might be slammed by different
demands and requests. Think
positively, and youll come out
ahead. Indulge those you care
about.
Tonight: Be innovative.
SCORPIO
(Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
HHH You are in a pressure
cooker. No matter which way
you turn, you cannot win for
losing. Knowing when to pull
up stakes could be very im-
portant. Think positively. Keep
your opinions to yourself.
Tonight: Head home.
SAGITTARIUS
(Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
HHHH Know just how much
you can deal with. Your limits
will be tested -- just in case
you dont already know. You
might want to rethink a prob-
lem before you launch into ac-
tion. In fact, you are likely to hit
obstacles if you do act.
Tonight: Swap war stories.

CAPRICORN
(Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
HHHH Getting the job done
could be overwhelming and
tiring. Others test your limits in
your vulnerable areas. Know
when to make a change and
head in another direction. Lis-
ten before you take action.
Tonight: As you like.
AQUARIUS
(Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
HHHH You feel your energy
and enthusiasm, as do others.
They might buck your author-
ity or leadership. You do know
how to say enough. Act on this
concept as well. Diplomacy
has a strong role.
Tonight: Do your thing.
PISCES
(Feb. 19-March 20)
HH You might have been
pushed beyond your limits. You
also could be much more tired
than you realize. You might not
understand what needs to hap-
pen in order to make your life
work and fow with all the con-
fusion surrounding you.
Tonight: Get some extra zzzs.
