Carol Roberts heard it again: Bam. Bam. Bam-bam-bam. The Hobbs Taylor Lofts resident has learned what gunfire sounds like since moving in across from Last Call, 729 N.H., in 2005. And early Sunday morning, she heard that sound again when three people were shot outside of the private club shortly before 3 a.m. All three were taken to area hospitals, where at least two remained Sunday night.

The birds already have left. Bill and Darlene Naff still watch for them from their cozy living room atop the hill at Sixth Street and Queens Road. Bill watches from his recliner positioned next to a humming electric heater, and Darlene from a corner chair comfortable for her needlepointing. But the covey of quail, the meadowlarks and the red birds are just gone. It’s no wonder, Darlene says in between stitches. The ponds that used to water both the birds and the neighbor’s wandering white herd of Charolais cattle have been replaced by suburban-style houses and city streets.

This is a story about love and compassion. More specifically, it is the story of an orphan from Nepal named Tara, for the Buddhist goddess of compassion, and nicknamed Jampa, meaning loving kindness in Tibet. It’s also about her mother, AnnMarie Glodich, who spent nearly six months in Nepal urging government officials to let her take the baby home, and her father, George Thompson, who stayed in Lawrence lobbying senators and ambassadors.

AUSTIN, Texas - Putting together a carbon copy of a stellar first half offensively didn’t happen for Kansas University Monday night after halftime. That said, Texas’ huge performance in the final 20 minutes pushed the No. 11 Longhorns past the No. 3 Jayhawks, 72-69, in Austin. The loss drops KU to 23-2 overall and 8-2 in Big 12 game, now behind Kansas State for first place. A.J. Abrams, who scored 14 points for Texas, blocked a crucial Brandon Rush three look in the late minutes, then hit two huge free throws late in the game. Connor Atchley led Texas with 16 points, including a four-of-four three-point showing in the first half.
