The competition tests teams’ abilities to create a casing that allows the egg to withstand the fall without breaking. It was among about a dozen contests at the annual expo, which continues today.

Trial and error is name of the game for aspiring engineers By Mark Fagan mfagan@ljworld.com

Having meticulously assembled her bridge with all the care of a licensed engineer, Ainsley Agnew felt confident that her 3.75 pounds of uncooked pasta not only would traverse an assigned 30-inch-wide chasm, but also would hold up to the intense weight of personal expectations and intense competition. Turns out only one thing could bring her down: 26 pounds of sand suspended from her glued-together span of wagon wheels, ziti and lasagna, during Friday’s Engineering Expo at Kansas University. “It just collapsed,” she said with all the smiling innocence of a 10-yearold fifth-grader and aspiring chef — which, of course, she is. “A trapezoid is a pretty good shape to build with. You should build with a trapezoid or a triangle. That works better.” Such lessons were stacking up Friday throughout the lobbies, hall-

ways and classrooms of Eaton and Learned halls at Kansas University, as Ainsley and more than 1,300 elementary and secondary students participated in 11 competitions designed to spur interest in youngsters who just might end up engineering the next high-tech wireless phone, reliable car-safety system or ultra-efficient bridge structure. That their pasta bridges snapped, or paper gliders missed their marks, or uncooked eggs dropped from the second floor cracked upon impact shouldn’t be seen as a problem, said Stuart Bell, dean of engineering. Far from it. “You really learn something when you fail, or when something doesn’t work right, you take it to heart,” he said. “They’re really learning some fundamentals. In engineering we say, ‘Always building products better, and better, and better.’” Engineers learn, regroup and improve. “We always make things better,” he said.

Over the next several months, the Kansas Department of Transportation will spend $100,000 to establish a plan on how to cope with growth near the intersection of Kansas Highway 10 and Sixth Street. The area, which encompasses a 1.5mile segment of Sixth Street from George Williams Way to East 800 Road, has been slated for future development. With this growth, transportation issues are expected to emerge, said KDOT spokeswoman Kim Qualls. The idea, Qualls said, is to create a map for future development that accounts for traffic volumes, safety

concerns and pedestrian access. “It’s a big-picture plan for the corridor, so it’s not being done piece by piece,” she said. To gather feedback from those who live nearby or travel the stretch of road and other stakeholders, KDOT is hosting an open house from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Thursday at the Lawrence Indoor Aquatic Center at Free State High School, 4706 Overland Drive. KDOT staff and other members of the planning team, which includes the city of Lawrence, Douglas County and the Lawrence-Douglas County Metropolitan Planning Organization, will be there to answer questions on the project and gather input and ideas for the plan.

A look at how labor laws work in Kansas By Andy Hyland ahyland@ljworld.com

Teachers in Wisconsin continue to express their anger over being stripped of their collective bargaining powers. Kansas University distinguished law professor Elinor Schroeder studies labor laws and is paying attention to what’s happening in Wisconsin. While not familiar with that state’s laws, Schroeder guessed that Wisconsin would be friendlier to unions, given that Wisconsin was the first state to adopt collective bargaining, and because it was a more liberal state than Kansas. Also, Kansas is a rightto-work state, meaning that it’s illegal to require that a person pay union dues and fees as a condition of employment. Wisconsin has no such restrictions. In Kansas, when negotiations between teachers and school boards break down, mediators and factPlease see KANSAS, page 2A

DEATHS Darlene Frances Wilbur May Darlene Frances Wilbur May, 87, of Perry, died Thursday, February 24, 2011, at Midland Hospice House in Topeka. She was born March 19, 1923, at Lawrence, the daughter of Walter Townsend and Ruth Faye Gorden Wilbur. Living in Perry since 1964, Mrs. May was a homemaker and had worked as a packing stock worker at Packer Plastics Manufacturing in Lawrence, retiring in 1983. She was a member of Williamstown Assembly of God Church. She was married to Alvis Clayton May on August 10, 1942; he preceded her in death on March 22, 1985. She is survived by one son, David T. (Debra) May, Perry, three daughters, Theresa King, Wichita, Donna Picolet, Lecompton, and Pauline K.

finders are called in, but their recommendations aren’t binding. School boards have the ultimate choice in whether to accept or reject those recommendations. Iowa, for example, has a stronger law for unions, said David Schauner, general counsel for the Kansas National Education Association. That law requires school administrators and teachers to submit their last, best offers to a mediator. That independent third party then makes a recommendation that’s binding for both sides. Schauner said that while the KNEA wasn’t completely happy with the structure of the labor laws in Kansas, he’d probably give them a “seven, maybe a seven and a half,” on a scale from one to 10, with a 10 being the best law. “These parties will be in a working relationship with one another indefinitely, so bargaining ought to be like problem-solving,” he said. As is the case in Wisconsin, workers can get pretty upset when collective bargaining rights are curtailed, Schroeder said. In addition to using the collective negotiating power to get better wages, benefits, working conditions and other concessions, studies show that the most important thing unions do for employees is that it gives them a say. “It gives them a way to express their voice against the power of the employer,” Schroeder said. It’s hard, she said, to stand up as an individual, for fear of repercussions.

COLLECTIVE BARGAINING Here’s how collective bargaining works for public employees in Kansas, according to a Kansas University law professor. Teachers are treated under a different section of the law but undergo a similar bargaining process. ● First, it’s not called “collective bargaining” in the statute. The employee and employer may “meet and confer” to enter into a “memorandum of agreement.” ● No strikes or lockouts are allowed for public employees in Kansas, so whenever there’s an impasse in negotiations, it’s resolved through a combination of mediation and fact-finding. ● If negotiations aren’t completed by a determined deadline in the law, and mediation hasn’t resolved the issue, an independent factfinder is appointed. ● The fact-finder issues an independent recommendation, and if the parties can’t agree to that, then the dispute is resolved by the Legislature or other governing body involved. That, in essence, makes the ultimate decision rest with the employer, giving employees an extra incentive to strike a deal before it gets that far. Could what’s happening in Wisconsin happen in Kansas? Unions are sometimes an easy target for conservative lawmakers, Schroeder said. “Hopefully it wouldn’t happen, but it’s conceivable,” Schroeder said. — Higher education reporter Andy Hyland can be reached at 832-6388.

House approves voter ID bill ————

Kansas Senate to study proof-of-citizenship plan By John Hanna Associated Press Writer

TOPEKA — Kansas Senate leaders suggested Friday that a requirement for people who register to vote for the first time in the state to prove they’re citizens will receive close scrutiny as the chamber considers Secretary of State Kris Kobach’s election fraud legislation. A bill containing Kobach’s proposed Secure and Fair Elections Act won House approval on an 83-36 vote Friday, sending it to the Senate. The measure also Kobach would require voters to show photo identification at the polls, increase penalties for election crimes and enact changes designed to make mail ballots more secure. It would give the secretary of state’s office the power to file and prosecute election fraud cases in state courts, along with county prosecutors and the attorney general’s office. The Senate Ethics and Elections Committee plans to have a briefing from legislative researchers on election fraud and voter ID issues Thursday. Chairwoman Terrie Huntington, a Fairway Republican, said she’ll schedule hearings as soon as possible after that. “I do have one concern

about those who move from another state,” Huntington said. “They move to the state of Kansas, and now we have this new voter registration program, and they’re not familiar with it.” The measure’s enactment would make Kansas the 10th state with a photo ID law, but Kobach said the requirement, combined with the proof of citizenship rule and other provisions in the bill, would give the state the strongest election fraud laws in the nation. Opponents, mostly Democrats, argue that Kobach’s proposals would seriously hamper efforts to register voters door to door or at sites such as libraries and grocery stores. They also contend that thousands of Kansas residents either won’t be able to vote or will have their votes not counted because of the requirements. Kobach’s proposals also draw criticism because of his conservative Republican politics. He’s a Kansas City-area law professor on leave, known nationally for advising city officials and legislators in other states about cracking down on illegal immigration. He also helped draft the immigration law Arizona enacted last year. Critics of his proposals also question whether Kansas has a significant election fraud problem. Last month, he issued a report saying the secretary of state’s office had received 59 reports of alleged irregularities

involving at least 221 ballots since 1997, though he suggested those reports represent perhaps only 10 percent of what’s actually occurred. Senate Majority Leader Jay Emler, a Lindsborg Republican, said the possible inconvenience of a proof-of-citizenship requirement will be a key issue. “At this point, nobody has said that’s going to kill the bill,” Emler said. “They’ve expressed that as a concern that they want to talk about.” Senate Minority Leader Anthony Hensley, a Topeka Democrat who’s strongly opposed such measures in the past, said the proof-of-citizenship requirement will be “a big impediment” to people registering. Kobach said opponents are exaggerating the difficulties facing people who’d want to register for the first time in Kansas. The bill lists 13 documents that can provide proof of citizenship, including a passport, a birth certificate or a driver’s license from any state that requires such proof of citizenship to get it. The measure calls for the state to issue free birth certificates to people who are receiving social services or who meet certain income guidelines, if they want to use the certificate to register to vote. Kobach said he doubts people who move to Kansas will have trouble getting certificates from their home states if they don’t have them. “Most states make it easy,” he said.

Unions building. This is the people’s building,” Davis said. Jane Carter, executive director of the Kansas Organization for State Employees, said it would be “a sad day” if unions weren’t allowed to lobby and represent themselves in the Capitol. On Thursday, more than 50 union members were kicked out of the House gallery as they shouted “vote no” on a bill that workers said will restrict their ability to participate in political campaigns. O’Neal said the union members tried to bully legislators during their stay at the Capitol. “These tactics included verbal threats and sexually explicit comments to female legislators and staff," O’Neal said in a written statement entered into the House Journal. Union leaders said O’Neal's allegations were untrue. Prior to being escorted by state troopers out of the House gallery, union members had posted themselves outside the House chamber to urge legislators as they walked by to vote against the bill. At a news conference Friday, Carter, Judy Pierce, with the Machinists Union from Wichita, and Pat Kirkman, who recently retired from the Teamsters, said they were in three separate locations with union members outside the House chamber, and they heard no one making obscene remarks to female legislators or staff. And they said they heard no one getting verbally aggressive with other legislators. “I certainly didn’t hear anything that would have been inappropriate,” Kirkman said. “I heard a lot of them asking legislators to vote no. Some of the men were saying please, which surprised me.” Pierce said union members would not have stood for anyone making derogatory comments. Pierce said there were

House Speaker Mike O'Neal, R-Hutchinson, has alleged that several verbal threats and sexually explicit comments were made. many law off icers in the crowd and they would have made an arrest if someone got out of hand. There were no arrests. The three union members, Davis and Senate Democratic Leader Anthony Hensley of Topeka said O’Neal should show evidence that someone was subjected to sexually explicit comments or apologize for his accusations. O’Neal said he had verified from at least six people the use of profanity on the part of demonstrators. He said he would not reveal the names of those who said they were harassed out of respect for their rights of privacy. He said there was also a male legislator who said he felt threatened when he was surrounded by several union members. The dispute is over House Bill 2130, which would ban unions from making paycheck deductions for political activities and prohibit public employee unions from endorsing candidates. It was approved 75-46, with only Republican support, and now goes to the Senate for consideration.

House approves bill to analyze privatization

Schools eyeing layoffs

By Scott Rothschild

Wisconsin school districts are warning teachers that their contracts might not be renewed as Gov. Scott Walker’s plan to cut nearly all public employees’ collective bargaining rights remains in limbo. The proposal took a concrete step forward Friday when Republicans in the state Assembly abruptly approved the bill and sent it to the Senate after three straight days of debate and amid confusion among Democrats. But with all 14 Democratic state senators still out of state, another stalemate awaits the measure that Walker insists will help solve budget deficits and avoid mass layoffs. The legislative gridlock prompted the Wisconsin Association of Schools Boards to warn districts that they have until Monday to warn teachers of possible nonrenewal of contracts. That’s because if Walker’s bill becomes law, it would void current teacher collective bargaining agreements that lay out protocol and deadlines for conducting layoffs.

USDA offers discrimination settlement The Obama administration is offering at least $1.3 billion to settle complaints from female and Hispanic farmers who say they faced discrimination from the Agriculture Department. The Agriculture and Justice departments announced Friday that farmers who could prove discrimination could receive up to $50,000. The proposal comes after the government settled with American Indians over similar discrimination issues last fall and Congress provided money for the second round of a black farmers settlement. Like the black and American Indian farmers, the thousands of minorities and women say local USDA offices for years denied them loans and other assistance that routinely went to whites.

Jeremy Bernard, a senior adviser to the U.S. ambassador to France, will soon trade Paris for Washington and take on the high-profile assignment, the White House announced Friday. That means he’ll be responsible for planning numerous social functions and events and pulling them off without a hitch, including opulent state dinners, the annual Easter Egg Roll and dozens upon dozens of receptions. President Barack Obama said Bernard shares his and first lady Michelle Obama’s vision of the White House as a place that “celebrates our history and culture in dynamic and inclusive ways.” Bernard, who is gay, said he was deeply humbled to be joining the White House staff. 3 | DENVER

TONGANOXIE

Man released from hospital after police shooting incident By Shawn Linenberger slinenberger@theworldco.info

T O N G A N O X I E — An Overland Park man who was injured early Thursday when a Tonganoxie police officer shot at him has been released from the hospital and taken into custody by Leavenworth County officials. Jeff Roberts, 33, was arrested Friday on charges of aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer, domestic battery, criminal damage to property and criminal use of weapons, according to Undersheriff Ron Cranor. Bond is set at $5,750. Roberts’ mother says her son was taken to Kansas University Hospital in Kansas City, Kan., after he fought with her and then

had a confrontation with police at his parents’ home in southern Tonganoxie. Apparently Roberts, who is on medication to treat symptoms of depression, had an argument with his mother about 1 a.m. Thursday and decided he wanted to drive to his Overland Park home. He can’t drive legally, his mother said, because his license was suspended after a DUI arrest in the past year. Roberts took his car keys from his mother and grabbed an unloaded shotgun from a closet before he went outside. He had shoved his mother before he left the house. Once outside, Roberts broke windows and beat on the home’s siding with the butt of the gun,

his mother said. She called 911. Asked whether Roberts had pointed the shotgun at officers, Police Chief Jeff Brandau said: “They shot him because they felt threatened.” Off icers did not know Roberts’ gun was unloaded. The officer fired at Roberts and the bullet struck the shotgun, not Roberts, the chief said. “It hit the gun, is what the bullet hit, and bullet fragment and parts of it went up into his chest,” Brandau said. “He was lucky.” Roberts’ mother has said she has no animosity toward police. — Shawn Linenberger, news editor at The Mirror newspaper in Tonganoxie, can be reached at 913-845-2222.

A 29-year-old Lawrence man was sentenced to life in prison on Friday for having sex with a 6year-old girl over a two-year-old period. “This is a very serious offense. This was a young girl,” District Judge Michael Malone said to defendant Steve A. Williams. “What makes it worse is the fact that there was a trusting relationship there.” Williams had pleaded no contest in November to rape of an extended family member, and Malone sentenced him to serve 25 years Williams to life in prison. Williams will also concurrently serve a three-year sentence after he was convicted of exploitation of a child for possessing child pornography of another child who was younger than 18. He had lived with his mother in north-central Lawrence before Lawrence police officers arrested him last June. Family members have said the exploitation charge stemmed from Williams showing the DVD containing child pornography to another family member. A relative turned the DVD over to police, which spurred the investigation. Defense attorney Jessica Kunen had asked Malone to give Williams a lesser prison sentence saying that he cooperated Please see SENTENCING, page 4A

Human breast milk ice cream — yum? Gross or tasty? A London company is offering an unusual dessert — ice cream made with human breast milk. Trendy London ice cream parlor The Icecreamists said its “Baby Gaga” ice cream sold out as soon as it launched Friday. The company paid women who responded to an online ad to donate their breast milk. The milk — which the company said was screened in line with blood donor requirements — is then pasteurized and churned together with vanilla pods and lemon zest. The dish comes in a martini glass and sells for $22.50 each. Some may be repulsed by the idea but Matt O’Connor, who owns the company, told the BBC that the product is “organic, free-range and totally natural.” “It’s good enough for our kids, good enough for our ice cream,” he said. There are no specific laws in Britain prohibiting businesses from selling human milk products, the Food Standards Agency said, although they must comply with general food safety laws to ensure the product is safe for consumption. Victoria Hiley donated the first batches of milk, earning $24 per every 10 ounces, the BBC reported.

Church musical commemorates Black History Month By Brenna Hawley bhawley@ljworld.com

Musicians from Lawrence and area communities will come together Sunday to celebrate Black History Month, as well as the many cultural and ethnic groups in Lawrence. St. Luke’s AME Church, 900 N.Y., will host the annual Black History Month Musical at 3:30 p.m. Sunday. What started as a way to fill the pews has grown into a citywide event celebrating its fifth anniversary. The Rev. Verdell Taylor, pastor at St. Luke’s, said music is a way to express religious feelings. “People really like the music, and

they can really relate to the music,” Taylor said. “The music says so much and affects people in a sincere, heartfelt way.” There will be about 12 groups, including the choir from Plymouth Congregational Church, vocalists from Lawrence Indian United Methodist Church, a gospel group, praise dancers and a saxophone player. Taylor said each group will present two selections and the program will be about two-and-a-half hours long. Taylor said the program recognized the African-American heritage, where song was important for communicating messages and giving hope to slaves. “To be uplifted spiritually, you Please see MUSICAL, page 4A

Exchange shooter gets 7-year sentence Staff reports

A judge sentenced a 28year-old Lawrence man to serve a total of about seven years in prison for firing a gun and injuring six people last August at a south Lawrence apartment. District Judge Michael Malone handed down the sentence Friday afternoon to Sinh Lavongsa, who had Lavongsa pleaded guilty to six counts of aggravated battery in December for an Aug. 1 shooting at The Exchange, 3100 Ousdahl Road. Prosecutors alleged Lavongsa fired a handgun at a man in the doorway when the man yelled a racial slur at him, but they say he fired eight times and hit five other

You get to hear the heritage of African-American struggles,” he said. “The music, it touches your inner being, your soul.” Joyce Pearson, one of the organizers of the event, said the event was also meant to bring the community into the building, which was renovated and completed in the

people who were either inside or near the apartment. None of the victims’ injuries was life-threatening. Defense attorney Craig Stancliffe had asked Malone to allow Lavongsa to serve all of his sentences concurrently — which would have given him a total of three years and seven months in prison — because Lavongsa is expected to be deported to Thailand, where he is a citizen, after he finishes his prison sentence. But Malone followed a recommendation from prosecutors to have him serve the sentences for each count consecutively. “There is a real issue of justice in that we have separate victims for which there are separate convictions,” assistant district attorney James McCabria said. Malone gave Lavongsa credit for the nearly seven months he’s already spent in jail and ordered him to pay $7,500 restitution in the case.

last year. “We enjoy having people from all over Lawrence and this area come to this church,” she said. Taylor said that every year people came to the concert who had never heard traditional African-American music before. “They come expecting to hear some black music, and they’re hearing something that is different,” he said. The concert is free, and a reception will follow in the basement of the church.

Lawmakers celebrate benefits of Boeing win WICHITA (AP) — Boeing has started hiring engineers to work on its $35 billion contract to build a new fleet of air refueling tankers for the Air Force, Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback said Friday. “The employment has already begun,” Brownback told reporters at a news conference at Boeing’s defense plant in Wichita. Brownback and the state’s congressional delegation were at the plant one day after the Pentagon selected the company to build nearly 200 airborne refueling tankers based on its 767 jetliner. Boeing was chosen over European Aeronautic Defence and Space Co. Boeing has said the contract would support some 50,000 jobs nationwide. A Boeing win has long been touted to create some 7,500 direct and indirect jobs in Kansas with an economic impact of $388 million. That figure includes existing and new jobs at Boeing and its suppliers, along with the ripple effect of other jobs created from the economic impact. Boeing Wichita will be the finishing center for converting the jets into tankers.

For the month of February, all dog adoption fees are $35. Cold weather can be very dangerous to animals. This winter, please take extra precautions to help keep them safe: • Despite a furry coat, domesticated animals are no longer suited to withstand prolonged exposure to cold weather. Please remember that if the air temperature is below freezing, pets should be brought indoors. If a heated home area is not available, at the very least access to a warm garage or shed with dry bedding and out of the wind is a must. • WATER IS ESSENTIAL! Never rely on snow or ice for your animal’s drinking needs. Please provide water fresh as you would during the summer. Make sure it does not freeze!

BOEING 767 WORKERS DALE FLINN, LEFT, and David Muellenbach clasp hands at the news that the U.S. Air Force awarded a $35 billion contract to Boeing Co. to build the next generation of air refueling planes Thursday in Everett, Wash. Production will occur in Wichita, Kan., Everett and dozens of other locations. Boeing has said the contract will mean some 50,000 jobs. Wichita-based Spirit AeroSystems also would get work from the contract because it builds the forward section for the 767.

Williams declined to speak during the hearing, but the victim’s stepmother said her children hate what happened

but still loved him. She also expressed sympathy for him because he was sexually abused as a child. “In a way, thank you for admitting it when you did get caught instead of trying to deny it,” the girl’s stepmother said. “But you have to live with this the rest of your life.”

predicting any hard job numbers on Friday, just that the contract will mean “a whole bunch” of jobs in Wichita. U.S. Sen. Pat Roberts said he was told by the Air Force that the Boeing bid met all of the requirements, with the emphasis on the “all.” “How sweet it is,” Roberts told reporters. “Every once in a while, the good guys win.” U.S. Sen. Jerry Moran said it was a decision that is going to benefit America. “The good news is the outcome itself, but it is good news to know it wasn’t close,” Moran said. Former U.S. Rep. Todd Tiahrt, who worked to bring the tanker bid to Boeing for years before he was defeated in a run for senator, said that had the Air Force awarded EADS the contract it would be like outsourcing our national security. The state’s newest congressman, U.S. Rep. Mike Pompeo, said it has been nearly impossible to get the smile off people’s faces in Kansas since the bid was announced. “It reminds us all why this is the Air Capital of the World,” Pompeo said.

My passion is people! So, come on, people: come see me. I’m about 4 years old, and I am a lovely lady: almost all white but for that black “hat” I’m wearing. Actually it’s my ears. It makes me pretty cute, as does my black tail. I’m such a social girl, and can’t wait to start loving on you. I also like other cats. But, as I said, my passion is people. I know you’ll be passionate about me!

There are lots of black cats in this world, but none quite like me. Why? ‘Cause I’m everything you could want in an honest-to-gosh wonderful kitty. I’m about 10 months old and dashingly debonair, which means my sparkling personality will charm the socks off you! You can call me good looking, too, just please look my way. Because I’m looking: for love, for home, and for you.

I’m a sprightly little gal looking for a lap to love. All 13 pounds of me wants to play, wants to snuggle, and wants to be included in every family activity. I’m a 1-year-old Chihuahua/terrier mix, tan with sweet white markings, chin to toes! But it’s my stand-up ears that gets a smile every time. I’m a cutie — just an adorable little package rolled into one happy little Chi Chi — and this month I can be your cutie for only $35.

New Zealand earthquake toll at 145 dead By Steve McMorran Associated Press Writer

CHRISTCHURCH, NEW ZEALAND — Fresh aftershocks sent masonry tumbling among rescuers in New Zealand’s quake zone and a cat sparked false alarms today of a possible survivor, as the disaster’s death toll rose to 145 with more than 200 missing. Grim assessments emerged for the fate of the central business district in devastated Christchurch, with engineers and planners saying it will be unusable for months and that about a third of the buildings must be destroyed and rebuilt. On the outer edge of the district, Brent Smith watched in tears as workers demolished his 1850s-era house, where he had run a bed and breakfast and where antique jugs and a $6,000 Victorian bed were reduced to shards and f irewood. His three daughters hugged him, also weeping. “You don’t know whether to laugh or cry but I’ve been doing more of the latter,” Smith said. Prime Minister John Key, who spent some of the afternoon speaking to families who lost loved ones in the disaster, called on all New Zealanders to hold two minutes of silence next Tuesday to remember victims and the ordeal of the survivors. “This may be New Zealand’s single-most tragic event,” Key said. Key said the government would announce an aid package Monday for an estimated 50,000 people who will be out of work for months due to the closure of downtown. Christchurch Mayor Bob Parker assured relatives of the missing — including people from several countries who have converged on this southern New Zealand city of 350,000— that every effort was being made to locate any remaining survivors of Tuesday’s 6.3-magnitude quake. No one was found alive overnight as a multinational team of more than 600 rescuers continued scouring the city’s central business district, although a paramedic reported hearing voices in one destroyed building early Saturday, Police Superintendent Russel Gibson said. “We mobilized a significant number of people and sent a dog in again — and a cat jumped out,” Gibson said, adding that a rescue team removed “a signif icant amount of rubble to be 100 percent” certain that no person was trapped inside. Police have said up to 120 bodies may be entombed in the ruins of the downtown CTV building alone, where

NEWLYWEDS EMMA HOWARD AND CHRIS GREENSLADE CHEER for a group photo after their wedding Friday, just days after Howard was pulled from the rubble of the earthquake-devastated Pyne Gould Corporation in Christchurch, New Zealand. Tuesday’s magnitude 6.3 temblor collapsed buildings, caused extensive damage and killed more than 100 people.

WE’RE CELEBRATING

65 YEARS

as a Lawrence Family Business!

Amid tragedy, a rescue and a wedding By Kristen Gelineau Associated Press Writer

CHRISTCHURCH, NEW ZEALAND — Clutching her groom, she looked like any beaming bride. But Emma Howard’s trip down the aisle Friday almost didn’t happen. Just 72 hours earlier she was trapped under a building that collapsed in the earthquake. The 23-year-old was rescued nearly six hours after sending a frantic text to her fiancee, who helped pull her out. “I got this text ... saying ‘It’s Emma here. I’m OK and I love you very much,’” said Chris Greenslade, who was outside his office across town when the disaster struck Tuesday afternoon and raced to find Howard. Coming around the side of her building, he was horrified to find a tangled pile of metal beams and concrete, with the roof pancaked at a 45-degree angle. “It was honestly the worst thing I’ve ever felt in my life,” he said. dozens of foreign students from an international school were believed trapped. Still, Gibson said rescuers weren’t completely ruling out good news. “I talked to experts who say we’ve worked on buildings like this overseas and we get miracles. New Zealand deserves a few miracles,” he said. The King’s Education language school released a list of missing people presumed in

The off ice tower was destroyed, and Howard was trapped in a tiny cavity between collapsed floors. Greenslade dug through the debris, pulling others free as he tried to reach Howard. He then helped direct the rescue crews that eventually found her. During the ordeal, Howard said Greenslade kept her calm by sending her reassuring texts. “His message said, ‘I’m with your parents. I love you. There are lots of men trying to get you out,’” she told Associated Press Television News. The couple was all smiles as they left Christ the King Church on Friday — she in a white strapless dress with a lace bodice and pale pink bow at the back pinned with a cameo brooch, he in a dark suit and purple tie. Surrounded by family, friends and their wedding party, Howard raised her right hand and pointed to the heavens, smiling exuberantly. the building: nine teachers and 51 students — 26 Japanese, 14 Chinese, six Filipinos, three Thais, one South Korean and one Czech. An additional 20 students were listed with “status unknown.” The death toll rose today to 145 after additional bodies were pulled from wrecked buildings, Police Superintendent David Cliff said. More than 200 people remain missing, he said.

Thoughts of her nuptials, which had been planned for months, raced through her head as she lay for hours pinned on the floor, Howard said. After her rescue, “I said to people, ‘When I was in there I was thinking, I’m meant to be married in three days,’” she said. “And they said to me, ‘You still are.’ “Everybody was determined we were still getting married. And I was like, ‘OK, then.’” Their happy day had its solemn moments, with the pastor recalling that many in this city where at least 123 perished and more than 200 are missing were not so lucky. It was a twist of fate not lost on the young couple. While the bridesmaids wore purple dresses as Howard had planned, the groomsmen were in white shirt sleeves; their suits were lost in the temblor. They also lost their cake. “But everything else has gone to plan. We are just so lucky,” Greenslade said. At Christchurch’s iconic cathedral, workers had just begun work on its ruined bell tower late Friday when fresh aftershocks sent more masonry tumbling from the building. Rescuers were immediately withdrawn while the safety of the 130-year old church was reassessed and a new plan made to reach as many as 22 people who may be entombed inside.

Protesters hit by hail of gunfire in Libya march Uggs starting L DAY IS F as low as CES • FINA

By Paul Schemm and Bassem Mroue

Associated Press Writer

BENGHAZI, LIBYA — Protesters demanding Moammar Gadhafi’s ouster came under a hail of bullets Friday when pro-regime militiamen opened fire to stop the first significant anti-government marches in days in the Libyan capital. The Libyan leader, speaking from the ramparts of a historic Tripoli fort, told supporters to prepare to defend the nation. Witnesses reported multiple deaths from gunmen on rooftops and in the streets shooting at crowds with automatic weapons and even an anti-aircraft gun. “It was really like we are dogs,” one man who was marching from Tripoli’s eastern Tajoura district told The Associated Press. He added that many people were shot in the head, with seven people within 10 yards of him cut

down in the first wave. Also Friday evening, troops loyal to Gadhaf i attacked a major air base east of Tripoli that had fallen into rebel hands. A force of tanks attacked the Misrata Air Base, succeeding in retaking part of it in battles with residents and army units who had joined the anti-Gadhafi uprising, said a doctor and one resident wounded in the battle on the edge of oppositionheld Misrata, Libya’s thirdlargest city, about 120 miles from the capital. The opposition captured two f ighters, including a senior officer, and still held part of the large base, they said. Shooting could still be heard from the area after midnight. The doctor said 22 people were killed in two days of fighting at the air base and an adjacent civilian airport. In Washington, President Barack Obama signed an

executive order Friday freezing assets held by Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi and four of his children in the United States. The Treasury Department said the sanctions against Gadhafi, three of his sons and a daughter also apply to the Libyan government. Obama said the U.S. is imposing unilateral sanctions on Libya because continued violence there poses an “unusual and extraordinary threat” to America’s national security and foreign policy. A White House spokesman said it is clear that Gadhafi’s legitimacy has been “reduced to zero” — the Obama administration’s sharpest words yet. The U.S. also temporari-

ly abandoned its embassy in Tripoli as a final flight carrying American citizens departed from the capital. The U.N. Security Council met to consider possible sanctions against Gadhafi’s regime, including trade sanctions and an arms embargo. Secretary-General Ban Kimoon urged it take “concrete action” to protect civilians in Libya, saying “the violence must stop” and those responsible for “so brutally shedding blood” must be punished. But Gadhafi vowed to fight on. In the evening, he appeared before a crowd of more than 1,000 supporters in Green Square and called on them to fight back and “defend the nation.”

Budget cuts pose threat to recovery “

By Michael Sandler and Jeannine Aversa

The massive financial Associated Press Writers problems at the state and local levels have and WASHINGTON — Deep spending cuts by state and local will continue to restrain governments pose a growing growth.” threat to an economy that is already grappling with high unemployment, depressed home prices and the surging cost of oil. Lawmakers at state capitols and city halls are slashing jobs and programs, arguing that some pain now is better than a lot more later. But the cuts are coming at a price — weaker growth at the national level. The clearest sign to date was a report Friday on U.S. gross domestic product for the final three months of 2010. The government lowered its growth estimate, pointing to larger-thanexpected cuts by state and local governments. The report suggested that worsening state budget problems could hold back the recovery by putting more people out of work and reducing consumer spending. Across the country, governors and lawmakers are proposing broad cutbacks — lowering fees paid to nursing homes in Florida, reducing health insurance subsidies for lower-income Pennsylvanians, closing prisons in New York state and scaling back programs for elderly and disabled Californians. “The massive f inancial problems at the state and local levels have and will continue to restrain growth,” said

— economist Joel Naroff of Naroff Economic Advisors economist Joel Naroff of Naroff Economic Advisors. State and local governments account for 91 percent of all government spending on primary education, according to the Brookings Institution. And they provide 71 percent of higher-education spending. States also account for more than 70 percent of spending on roads, bridges and other infrastructure. But those same governments cut spending at a 2.4 percent rate at the end of last year. And economists predict they will slash their budgets by up to 2.5 percent this year — potentially the sharpest reduction since 1943. The deepest cuts are expected to occur in the first six months of this year. The worst cuts so far — 3.8 percent — came in the January-to-March period of 2010. That was the sharpest quarterly drop since late 1983, when the U.S. economy was recovering from a severe recession. Most economists think the cutbacks this year will exert an even bigger economic drag than last year. Newly elected Republican governors are leading the charge. They’re acting on campaign pledges to shrink gov-

ernment to meet budget gaps. They favor smaller governments with lower taxes and less regulation, which they say will boost private-sector growth and job creation. Some Democrats — including Govs. Andrew Cuomo of New York and Jerry Brown of California — have followed suit. They’re pushing for cuts to social programs and concessions from unions. No state has attracted more attention than Wisconsin. Pointing to the state’s projected $3.6 billion gap, Republican Gov. Scott Walker wants to strip state workers of collective bargaining rights. He also wants them to contribute more to their pensions and health insurance costs. The budget fight has taken center stage in Congress. Democrats are bending to Republican demands for spending cuts to avoid a shutdown of the federal government next week. The reduction in federal spending has a direct effect on states and municipalities. They depend on money from Washington to keep schools operating, put police officers on the street and subsidize public services like job training. The end of federal stimulus programs is also widening state deficits. Many governors, including those in Florida, New York and Colorado, are pursuing tighter budgets. Proposals include laying off public workers and teachers, reducing spending for education and health care, and ending some social services.

● Google has tweaked the formulas steering its Internet search engine to take the rubbish out of its results. The overhaul is designed to lower the rankings of what Google deems “low-quality” sites. That could be a veiled reference to such sites as Demand Media’s eHow.com, which critics call online “content farms” — sites producing cheap, abundant, mostly useless content that ranks high in search results. Sites that produce original content or information that Google considers valuable are supposed to rank higher under the new system. ● Regulators on Friday shut down a small bank in Illinois, raising the number of U.S. bank failures to 23 this year after the limping economy and mounting soured loans felled 157 banks in 2010.

New unsafe products database under fire

WASHINGTON (AP) — It’s something Nikki Johns wishes had been around before her infant son died in a drop-side crib: a centralized federal database of people’s safety complaints about thousands of products, from baby gear to household appliances and more. “If I had known there had been children killed in dropsides, it would have swayed me against them,” said Johns, who lost her 9-month-old son, Liam, in a faulty crib that came apart at the side rail and trapped the little boy one night after his mom went to bed at their home in Citrus Heights, Calif., nearly six years ago. Johns, other parents who have tragically lost children, and consumer advocates are eagerly awaiting March 11, the formal launch date for the government database SaferProducts.gov, where people can share complaints of injury or worse from everyday products such as cribs, high chairs, space heaters and toasters. But the database, overseen by the Consumer Product Safety Commission, isn’t universally popular. Manufacturers and some members of Congress fear such a “crowdsourced” website will be bloated with bogus, inaccurate or misleading reports. One of those lawmakers, freshman Rep. Mike Pompeo, R-Kan., sponsored an amendment approved in the House last week to withhold additional funding for the database, which could bring the

project to a halt. Prospects for his amendment in the Democratic-led Senate aren’t clear. Anyone can submit a “report of harm” to the SaferProducts.gov database. They aren’t required to have firsthand knowledge of the alleged injury or potential defect that could lead to injury. The reports are reviewed by commission staff to make sure basic information is provided — name, contact information, product, injury and approximate date, though personal information will be scrubbed before the report hits the database. The manufacturer is informed of the complaint and has 10 days to respond before the report is made public. CPSC said reports that have missing or clearly untrue information won’t be published. Plenty of safeguards exist to ensure accuracy, insisted CPSC Commissioner Bob Adler, a Democrat and database supporter. Not only will manufacturers be allowed to publish any rebuttal along with the complaint, Adler said the commission will remove or attempt to correct any information that is found to be false. “A report of harm comes in with a set of allegations and then the manufacturer is free to respond as fully as they wish,” Adler said in an interview. “The consumer gets to be the ultimate judge instead of having the government be the data nanny.”

This is no game. And “becoming mayor of Chicago isn’t his last stop. It’s one of his first. Rahm’s last stop might just be back in the White House, but not as another chief of staff. Don’t think it hasn’t crossed his mind.”

utive, and civics teachers would tell you that one branch of government is supposed to serve as a check on the ambitions of the other. But the city wanted a strongman and it got one. Over the past 20 years, Daley decimated what remained of the ward organizations and installed his own patronage armies. Now there are only a few truly talented aldermen left in the council. The North Side bosses will ascend. Look for Ald. Patrick O’Connor, 40th, and former state Sen. James DeLeo, DHow You Doin?, to flex their muscle under a Mayor Emanuel. The new mayor may take a trophy head or two, perhaps that of Ald. Ed Burke, 14th, and put that on his wall, offering it up to friendly pundits as evidence of change. What Tuesday’s victory prevents is outside examination of the City Hall books. That lack of scrutiny is what Mayor Richard Daley wanted, after two decades of spending Chicago into near-bankruptcy with all that cronyism and favoritism. Emanuel’s victory completes an interesting switcheroo, with Rich Daley announcing his retirement,

Rahm stepping down as White House chief of staff, and mayoral brother Billy Daley stepping into Rahm’s old job. Some might call it cynical. But with a 2012 presidential re-election campaign under way, others might call it smart politics the Chicago Way. Emanuel could have had the Daley endorsement if he had wanted it. But he didn’t want it. The mayor had become toxic with that parking meter mess, with motorists paying quarters and quarters and more quarters, reportedly enriching investors in Abu Dhabi. Rahm wisely didn’t want Tuesday’s election to become a referendum on Daley. So Rahm had the best of both worlds. He received the Daley support, meaning establishment Chicago support, after behind-the-scenes discussions brought the elites to Rahm’s side. And he received Obama’s tacit endorsement, undercutting black support for former Sen. Carol Moseley Braun, to avoid a runoff with Gery Chico. And now Rahm can make his own moves. Months ago, he and I were at a diner having breakfast near his campaign office, and I told him I would write that the campaign was his to lose, and I did. But there was also this nagging feeling that his candidacy was merely about papering over the gaping financial holes left by Daley. Rahm surprised me with a bit of honesty and clarity. “There were a lot of decisions, or the lack of making a decision, that have led to this very bad financial situation that wasn’t just recession-driven,” he said about all that red ink covering the city’s books. “We have to make big, big, changes,

From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for Feb. 26, 1911: "The problems of the family have always been left to the wife to solve. Such questions YEARS as how to deal with spoiled children, domesAGO tic hygiene, education in the home, the 'hired IN 1911 girl' question and how to take care of family expenditures have seldom bothered the head of the household. Indeed, it has always been beneath his traditional dignity to meddle with petty affairs of the home. This precedent has been broken at the University of Kansas, however, where nine boys out of a class of twenty-three have enrolled for the new term to make a critical study of 'The Family.' Until the present time, this was the one course in the college curriculum from which it was deemed best to exclude young men. The growing importance of problems of the home, however, has overridden weak sentiment.”

because just putting more quarters in a broken machine ain’t gonna work.” Broken machine? Quarters? The reference to Daley’s ridiculous parking meter deal was unmistakable, and I thought his metaphorical comment was a slip of the tongue. “No, it’s not,” he explained. “It’s exactly the kind of metaphor I was going for.” Now that the campaign is over, the toadies will bend and smooch, bend and smooch. We’ll be treated to gushing media profiles of Emanuel and desperate pleas for access, like the recent epistles in some of the national magazines. But Emanuel got his fill of such gushing praise two years ago, when he was named as Obama’s chief of staff. Entire forests were killed to praise Rahm, in the hopes of obtaining access. Then, hardly a word was written about the hundreds of City Hall knuckle-draggers — their salaries paid by taxpayers — who were sent out to pound the precincts for Rahm in the 2002 congressional election and put him in office. But even with all that inevitable smooching, what’s refreshing is that Rahm is too intelligent to enjoy it. “That’s the thing about Rahm that reporters don’t get,” said a friend who worked with him for years. “He hates all that butt-kissing. He’s got things to do.” Like a broken city to boss. And the Daleys to satisfy, and a president to reelect. It won’t be easy. Good luck, Rahmfather.

Reliable data To the editor: Closing any school should be a last resort. Closed schools produce stagnation in a neighborhood: Families move away, home ownership declines, property values fall and tax income shrinks. Later, the district borrows money for new facilities, and the cycle continues. The elementary schools task force has recommended that Wakarusa Valley be closed by next fall. Further “consolidations” have been presented as inevitable, based on statistics assumed to be reliable. Unfortunately, such reliability is doubtful. Closing Pinckney, for example, is estimated to save almost $700,000. But a similar exercise last year produced an estimate of $470,000 — an astonishing increase of 49 percent. (Increases at other schools fall in the 3-4 percent range.) Projected savings from teaching staff at Pinckney have increased nearly sevenfold, from

$50,000 to $340,000. It is not clear how these figures were reached or which assumptions changed. Pinckney’s classrooms are alleged to be small for the district, but on-site measurement shows them to be larger than reported. Likewise, Pinckney’s published “footprint” suggests no potential for expansion, but excludes land that has served for years as the school’s playground. Similar inaccuracies may exist for other schools. If the stakes were low, we could afford to use faulty information. But the consequences are great and irreversible. What vision is driving the mandate for the elementary schools task force? How many schools is Lawrence expected to retain 10 years from now? How will they relate to their neighborhoods? To make credible decisions about our children’s and community’s future, we must begin with reliable information. David Carttar, Lawrence

To the editor: “Remember Borders” (Feb. 21 editorial) asserts that planners shouldn’t fool themselves into thinking they can predict the future: “City leaders and planners are still asked to sit in judgment on new development projects. Arguments are still made at City Hall that some developments should be denied because they’ll run other businesses out of business. There really should be no room for that in the city’s planning process, because that’s not planning; it’s just guessing.” This is not even close to the truth. The amount of retail space that the city can support is a direct function of the amount of retail spending in the marketplace. This can be predicted with a high level of accuracy. Unfortunately, developers have added space at a pace far higher than the growth in spending, and the tax-

payers pay the price. The Tanger Mall remains empty and a blight on North Lawrence. The Downtown 2000 project failed and left the taxpayers picking up the tab for an underutilized $8 million parking garage. Other projects sit nearly empty such as the retail portion of the Hobbs-Taylor Building. City leaders should be guided in their decisions on developments by expert knowledge of how much space can be supported. They should be aware of the blight that overbuilding causes. The taxpayers are not neutral observers; we are investors in the parking garages and other infrastructure. We do not like to see our investments squandered and our neighborhoods blighted to appease developers who cannot regulate their own pace of growth. Kirk McClure, Lawrence

Treece trust seeks bigger buyout fund ONLINE: See the special report “Mining’s Legacy: A Scar on Kansas” at LJWorld.com

COLUMBUS (AP) — A trust fund for the contaminated southern Kansas town of Treece is asking the governor to allow it to provide at least another $5,000 to each property owner. The Treece Relocation Assistance Trust on Thursday approved basing offers to property owners on an average of three appraisals plus 20 percent.

The Joplin Globe reported that the new formula would be applied to all future offers, and past offers would be adjusted. The Environmental Protection Agency allocated $3.5 million to relocate Treece residents who want to leave the town to escape contamination from decades of lead and zinc mining. Many Treece residents have complained that the property buyout offers from the trust fund are too low.

Joshua Radin Joshua Radin has been touring in support of his 2010 album “The Rock and The Tide” and while doing so has earned the support of people taken by his gentle voice and simple, but evocative song structures. Tonight, Radin appears at Liberty Hall, 644 Mass., with support from the Cary Brothers and Laura Jansen. The Cary Brothers play the same kind of sleepy, acoustic guitar-driven ballad that fits in well on “Scrubs,” where Radin made his debut. Jansen, on the other hand, has a more assertive edge to her music than the other two artists on the bill. Much of her music is pianobased and relies on Jansen’s capable voice to fill out the song space. Tickets to the all ages show are $18.50 at the Liberty Hall box office.

Senior shoots out of slump ——

KU guard Morningstar Big 12’s top 3-point percentage shooter By Gary Bedore

For the first and only time Friday night, silence fell over the capacity crowd packed into the gym at Free State High. With mere seconds remaining on the clock, Lawrence High junior KJ Pritchard hung in the air, faded away from two Firebird defenders and hoisted a higharcing three-pointer in front of the Lions’ bench. “We were all definitely scared, holding our breath,” FSHS senior Evan Manning said. Pritchard’s would-be game winner fell just short, bouncing softly on the front rim and into a Firebird defender’s hands as time expired. “It looked good. It was right on,” said Pritchard, who poured in 27 points to lead LHS. “You can’t ask for much more than that.” The temporarily noiseless vacuum again filled with hooting, hollering and celebrating, as the Firebirds escaped with a 5857 victory in a game that lived up to every bit of its billing. What was a thrilling finish for the Firebirds (12-8) and their fans on senior night — honoring Alec Heline, Austin Hoag, Manning and Eric Watson — was another bitter one for the Lions, who fell, 61-60, in the final seconds earlier this year in the Jungle. “You hear from everybody how great the game was last time, and how great the game was tonight,” LHS coach Mike Lewis said. “You just want it to be a great game in your favor.” Last time out, Georgi Funtarov’s hook shot with just over six seconds remaining proved to be the difference for FSHS. On Friday, Funtarov outdid his previous City Showdown performance. The 6-foot-6 junior carried the Firebird offense at times, often going basket-for-basket with Pritchard, finishing with 30 points and 12 rebounds. “I felt a lot better than last time,” Funtarov said. Funtarov’s scored 10 points in the fourth quarter, when FSHS Please see BOYS, page 4B

Senior TaMiya Green led the Lions with 17 points and 10 rebounds. Senior Emily Peterson added seven points and seven rebounds. Green drew the matchup on Kirkpatrick and hounded her all over the court in the first half. Kirkpatrick said she adjusted by passing to open teammates and setting screens. The Lions also slowed the pace of the game in the first half, trying to use their height advantage inside. Green scored 10 points in the opening half, many coming on turnaround layups.

NORMAN, OKLA. — Brady Morningstar, who enters today’s Kansas University-Oklahoma game as the Big 12’s top threepoint percentage shooter, is the same guy who was mired in a 2for-19 slump in late January. “I told everybody that when I started hitting shots they’d come in bunches. It just happened,” said Morningstar, KU’s 6-foot-3 senior from Lawrence, who has drilled 21 of his last 35 Morningstar threes. Overall, he’s made 22 of 42 KANSAS AT in Big 12 play for 52.4 per- OKLAHOMA cent, well ahead of Cory When: 3 p.m. today Joseph’s 48.8 Where: Lloyd Noble percent mark Center, Norman, from beyond Okla. the arc. “I was in a TV: ESPN, cable slump for a channels 33, 233 while,” Morn- Line: KU by 14 ingstar said. “It wasn’t because of anything other than I was not making shots. After I missed a bunch, maybe I started thinking about it too much. That’s all a slump is. Eventually, you shoot your way out of it. I found my way to shoot out of it. Now I’m just trying to do whatever I can to make the team better and win games.” Morningstar enters today’s 3 p.m. tipoff at Lloyd Noble Center with an 8.2 scoring mark off 53.5 percent shooting in league games. He has 52 assists against seven turnovers, a staggering differential that coach Bill Self referred to as a “joke.” It’s by far the best assist-toturnover ratio in the league, ahead of Nebraska’s Lance Jeter (64 assists, 30 turnovers). Morningstar’s eyes brightened when asked if his play in Big 12 games gives him an outside shot for second-team all-conference mention. “I have not thought of that at all. I have absolutely no idea how that goes down,” Morningstar said. “If we can win these next three games and hope Texas slips up in one of them, we can keep our Big 12 thing going (six straight league titles). That’s what we are playing for now. It’s the Big 12 title.” The Jayhawks enter today’s game 26-2 overall and 11-2 in conference play, compared to Texas’ 24-4, 12-1 mark. Oklahoma, meanwhile, enters at 12-15, 4-9. The Sooners have dropped six in a row since opening 4-3. “It’s a challenge,” Sooner coach Jeff Capel said of keeping his players focused as they try to gain momentum going into next season. OU, which has just one senior on the roster in Cade Davis, is hoping to avoid a repeat of 200910, when the Sooners dropped nine straight games to close a 1318 season. “It’s something we have to really try to make sure we’re building for the future, not just

LAWRENCE HIGH’S CHRISTINA HASWOOD (42) AND FREE STATE’S KENNEDY KIRKPATRICK (11) GO for a loose ball. The Firebirds won, 55-36, Friday at Free State High.

Free State High girls basketball coach Bryan Duncan’s message for his team at halftime of Friday’s City Showdown was relatively simple. Increase the defensive pressure on the ball, and the easy baskets in transition will come. The Firebirds took that to heart, swarming the Lions on the perimeter out of halftime. An 110 run to open the half helped the Firebirds open a double-digit lead they wouldn’t give up, taking a 55-36 victory on Senior Night at FSHS. “Once we get running and get

up and down the floor, that’s when we’re at our best,” Duncan said. Coming out of halftime in a 12-2 halfcourt trap, the Firebirds forced three LHS turnovers on the first three possessions. LHS coach Nick Wood said his team just needed to handle the ball better in the second half. The Lions ended up with 21 turnovers, 13 coming after halftime. “We can’t afford to do that, and they took advantage of it,” Wood said. Sophomore Kennedy Kirkpatrick led the Firebirds with 18 points, many of them coming in transition. Junior Lynn Robinson added 17, with 12 coming after halftime.

Royals’ prospect injured in exhibition S U R P R I S E , A RIZ . (AP ) — Kansas City Royals prospect Henry Barrera walked off the mound holding his right arm and wincing in pain during the team’s final intrasquad game. The team said the preliminary diagnosis was Barrera has a strained right flexor, and he was scheduled to have an MRI. A club spokesman said it would be 24 to 48 hours before the full extent of the injury would be known. Barrera, who has a 97 mph fastball, had reconstructive elbow surgery in 2009 and worked just 33 innings last year in the minors. In 16 appearances for Double-A Northwest Arkansas, he struck out 25 in 25 innings while going 3-1 with a save, holding opponents to a .193 batting average. The Royals showcased f ive young left-handers late in the

game — John Lamb, Will Smith, Danny Duffy, Everett Teaford and Brandon Sisk. Manager Ned Yost said Lamb and Smith looked good and Duffy “had good stuff.” The 21-year-old Smith worked a perfect inning, while Lamb, 20, gave up a single. “The adrenaline was flowing a little more,” Smith said. “It feels more like a game than a bullpen or throwing batting practice.” Smith threw 10 pitches, including striking out Alex Gordon looking on a full count and retiring Jacob Kuebler, Gordon’s cousin, on a groundball. “I guess I won’t be getting any Christmas cards from that family,” Smith said with a laugh. The 22-year-old Duffy allowed a two-out single, but nothing else. “It felt good. I was a little side-

SPRING TRAINING ROUNDUP

Rangers’ 3B Beltre to miss one week The Associated Press

Adrian Beltre’s debut with his new team will have to wait a short while. Kendry Morales has reason to celebrate: He should be ready for the start of the season. Beltre, the Rangers’ new third baseman, will miss at least the first week of spring training games because of a strained right calf that is still bothering him. “It’s better to happen now than the season,” Beltre said Friday in Surprise, Ariz. “Now is enough time to be ready to break camp healthy, 100 percent.” Assistant general manager Thad Levine said the Rangers will be cautious with Beltre after an MRI showed an over-extension of the muscle but no tear. Texas signed Beltre last month to an $80 million, five-year contract that can also include an additional sixth season for $16 million more. The Rangers expect Beltre to be ready for the start of the season April 1 against Boston. “I think we’re handling this in a very responsible and conservative matter considering where we are in the spring and the nature of who the player is,” Levine said. Beltre said he initially felt discomfort in the calf after working out on a treadmill at home before reporting to spring training. In Tempe, Ariz., Angels manager Mike Scioscia said Morales should be ready to play by opening day. The slugger’s 2010 season ended when he broke his leg while jumping on home plate to celebrate a gameending grand slam. Morales, a first baseman, is expected to see early spring action as a designated hitter. Should his recovery extend into the regular season and leave him at DH, Scioscia could be forced to alter what figures to be a set outfield of Vernon Wells in left field, Peter Bourjos in center and Torii Hunter in right in order to keep current DH Bobby Abreu’s bat in the lineup. “When (Morales) gets to 100 percent, he’ll be out on the field,” Scioscia said. “What the time table (is) for that to happen, remains to be seen. We’ve got a long way until opening day. Scioscia added: “The last week, 10 days of spring training, hopefully he’ll be in the rotation at first base.” Scioscia said Morales would hit every day if he needed, either during games or on practice fields, and the time needed for a player to be ready to play defense is less than the time it takes a hitter. In Scottsdale, Ariz., Tim Lincecum had butterflies, admittedly nervous taking the field with the added hype as a World Series winner. Fittingly, the World Series champion Giants won a familiar one-run decision with a 7-6 victory against the Arizona Diamondbacks in the majors’ first spring training game. The champs took the field to roaring cheers at Scottsdale Stadium, where a logo painted on the grass behind home plate read “2010 WORLD CHAMPIONS.” “Before the game there was a buzz,” manager Bruce Bochy said. “We appreciate it. I told these guys: ’You should be honored. You’ve earned this.”’ 2 Lincecum threw 33 pitches over 1 ⁄ 3 innings. He struck out one and was tagged for three runs and five hits. In Fort Myers, Fla., Twins outfielder Michael Cuddyer could miss the next few days because of a painful wart on his left foot. Cuddyer tried to treat the wart himself with medication this winter, but it ended up getting infected.

to-side, but it was the first outing.,” Duffy said. “I wasn’t straight online. I was cutting myself off a little bit. I felt like I was letting it go. My arm feels really good and strong. That’s night and day from last year.” Teaford, who led the Royals organization with 14 victories last year, is the only one of the five on the 40-man big-league roster, and none has pitched in the majors. He and Sisk, who was not drafted and began his pro career in an independent league, each gave up a run. “I’m not putting much weight on an intrasquad inning,” Yost said. “I just wanted them to get through it.” ●

Note: Gordon had a feast-orfamine afternoon. He hit a threerun homer and struck out looking three times.

K.C. SIGNS SIX SURPRISE, ARIZ. — Right-hander Jeremy Jeffress, acquired in the trade that sent Zack Greinke to Milwaukee, and second baseman Chris Getz were among six players to agree to one-year contracts with the Kansas City Royals on Friday. Getz hit .237 and stole 15 bases in 17 attempts last year. The 23year-old Jeffress was 1-0 with a 2.70 ERA in 10 relief outings for Milwaukee last season. The Royals also agreed to terms with right-handers Greg Holland and Sean O’Sullivan and outfielders Gregor Blanco and Mitch Maier.

Beyond that, we will not discuss the matter any further.” The New York Times and Daily News said the loan amount was $25 million.

NFL Bears sign Smith to extension CHICAGO — Out of patience after three straight playoff misses, many Chicago fans were calling for coach Lovie Smith to be fired a year ago. The Bears stuck with him.

KU softball win streak ends at 10 J-W Staff Reports

G R E E N S B O R O , N . C . — The streak is dead. Long live the streak. Kansas University’s softball team, which opened the season with a program-best 10 straight victories, suffered its first setback Friday, a 5-4 loss to Minnesota at the Spartan Classic. Later Friday, the Jayhawks bounced back behind a twohitter by Allie Clark to rout UNC-Greensboro, 8-3. Clark (6-1) struck out a season-high six batters and gave up three runs — one earned — over the full seven innings. Brittany Hile had two home runs for the Jayhawks (11-1), with five RBIs. Marissa Ingle drove in KU’s other three runs on two hits. Junior Liz Kocon and freshman Ashley Newman each had two hits. Against Minnesota, KU put the go-ahead run on second base in the bottom of the seventh, but stranded her. The Jayhawks outhit the Golden Gophers, 8-7, but stranded 14 runners. Trailing 5-4 in the seventh inning, junior Marissa Ingle reached base on an error and then advanced on a single down the left-field line by Hile. Both runners moved up a bag following a sacrifice bunt from sophomore Rosie Hull, but Minnesota forced KU into a groundout and then struck out sophomore Mariah Montgomery to end the game. Hile and Laura Vickers led Kansas with two hits apiece, while Liz Kocon recorded her fifth home run of the season. KU will continue play in the Spartan Classic today. The Jayhawks will face Moorehead State at 10 a.m.

AREA HIGH SCHOOL BASKETBALL

Tongie sweeps Turner ————

Girls cruise; boys rally in second half By Benton Smith basmith@theworldco.info

TONGANOXIE — Tonganoxie High’s girls basketball team nailed 10 three-pointers Friday and saw little resistance inside on the way to a onesided, 72-30 victory over Kansas City Turner. The Chieftains got four three-pointers apiece from junior guards Amanda Holroyd and Haley Smith, plus one from sophomore point guard Hannah Kemp and a surprising Senior Night three from center Tayler Miles, who banked home her first-ever attempt from behind the arc in the fourth quarter. Smith, who came off the bench and scored 18 of her game-high 20 points in the second half, was told by Tonganoxie coach Randy Kraft after halftime that he wanted her to hit four threes. After the romp, when Kraft saw Smith leave the locker room, he told her: “Next time I’ll ask for more.” Smith caught fire late, hitting all four of her long bombs in the final 8:25. She hit one in the final minute of the third, capping a 17-2 run for the Chieftains (9-11 overall, 6-8 Kaw Valley League), and hit all three of her attempts from deep in the fourth. Holroyd, who finished with 12 points, drained three straight three-point attempts in the first and second quarters. Tonganoxie only led by seven after the first quarter, but a 12-0 run to close the second quarter widened the margin. Holroyd’s third threepointer of the night started

the run. Senior forward Danielle Miller stole the ball and went coast-to-coast for a lay-in, Jenny Whitledge (who finished with 12 points and 10 rebounds) cut to the hoop for a basket and later moved a skip pass to Kemp for a three, and Tavia Brown hit a pair of free throws. The victory over Turner (118, 0-14) marked the end of the regular season for the Chieftains. At 7 p.m. Tuesday, they will play at K.C. Sumner Academy in a first-round substate game.

Junior center Dane Erickson, who scored 15 points, extended the Chieftains’ lead to double digits in the fourth quarter with a basket and a free throw with 4:53 remaining. The game was tied at 15 after a quarter, and Tonganoxie (9-11 overall, 4-10 Kaw Valley League) opened the second with a 10-0 run — with five points from Austin Vickers, three from Carlisle and two from Dylan Jacobs — before going cold and scoring just three points in the final 5:21 of the first half, K.C.

Goodrich leading charge for Kansas women By Ben Ward Journal-World Sports Writer

The brace on Kansas University guard Angel Goodrich’s right knee wasn’t much of a physical hindrance. But the bulky contraption served as a lingering reminder of the sophomore guard’s second anterior cruciate ligament tear. Goodrich constantly had to stop and tinker with it, which, at the very least, left the impression she was still less than healthy. The brace is gone now, and Goodrich’s play has taken off — and of late, so have the Jayhawks. “Without it, I feel light, I feel a little quicker,” Goodrich said. “Having it off is a breeze.

inched ahead after a mid-range jumper from Brett Frantz (10 points) and a crucial offensive rebound from Heline (four points, six assists). But with FSHS clinging to its 58-57 lead and just over 30 seconds to play, Funtarov misfired on a questionable threepointer from the top of the arc, and Anthony Buffalomeat (eight points, nine rebounds) pulled down the miss. After an LHS timeout and near steals by Funtarov and Manning, Pritchard caught an inbound pass with 2.6 seconds remaining, took a few dribbles to the far right corner, wheeled himself into position and rose for a jumper. Just like the last meeting — when a layup attempt at the buzzer by Logan Henrichs (who scored 12 points on Friday) sat on the rim before falling off — a potential game winner wouldn’t go down for the Lions (7-13). “It especially hurts because they both came down to the last shot for us,” a dejected Pritchard said. “And they both just rimmed out.” The game opened with a truly feel-good moment, as injured senior Eric Watson — who partially tore his Achilles on Tuesday — was introduced to loud cheers as a starter and hopped out onto the floor wearing a walking boot. LHS senior Jake Johnson (eight points) allowed the standing Watson to win the opening tip, and Manning dribbled the ball out of bounds, allowing Watson to shake hands with every player and check out of the game to a rousing chorus of “Er-ic Wat-son” from the crowd. “It was one of the coolest things I’ve ever seen,” said

I feel great. Knowing that the pain that was there before isn’t anymore feels amazing.” KU (18-9 overall, 5-8 Big 12) will play host to Nebraska — for the final time as a member of the Big 12 — at 7 tonight at Allen Fieldhouse. The Huskers’ record (13-14, 3-10) doesn’t do much to impress, but coach Bonnie Henrickson noted that they’re coming off of a 76-34 thumping of Missouri. Earlier this year, the Jayhawks fell, 75-61 in overtime, to the Huskers in Lincoln after a flat start and finish, but now aim to keep their two-game winning streak rolling and, ideally, lock down a bid for the NCAA Tournament. “We do look at the big pic-

Manning, who tallied 10 points, five steals and three assists. “Eric deserves that, definitely. For what he’s been through, for what he’s done for the team.” The rivalry was also lightened a bit by the collective effort to raise money for Coaches vs. Cancer. The Lions wore pink T-shirts with “Real Lions Wear Pink,” and “Paws for a Cause,” and the Firebirds’ T-shirts sported the motto “Cheer Green. Think Pink.” Players from both teams and cheer squads wandered the crowd accepting donations at halftime. The game was intense, and the crowd was rocking from the start, when, paced by smooth outside jumpers and slashing drives to the basket by Pritchard, who scored 18 first-half points, Lawrence took a 32-28 lead to the intermission. “We hurt ourselves in the first half taking silly gambles (on defense),” Law said. The Lions led by as many as seven points after halftime, but FSHS went on an 8-0 run in the third quarter and never trailed after the six-minute mark in the fourth. “We did everything we could do but win,” Lewis added. “Same story as last time.”

TOPEKA — Two boys and two girls from Free State High’s bowling team qualified for the state tournament. McKenzie Dever, Alyson Butler, Justin Walthall and Nick Conrad advanced after regionals on Friday at West Ridge. Both Firebird teams finished fifth, with the top three teams advancing to state. “Both the boys and girls had stellar performances,” Free State coach Anita Carlson said. “The field was tough, but they stuck with it and did well.” Dever led the Firebird girls with a 600 (200-169-231) to ● Results on page 6B

Veritas girls overwhelmed J-W Staff Reports

EUDORA — Top-seeded Manhattan Chief proved to be too physical for Veritas Christian’s girls basketball team. The Eagles fell to Manhattan Chief, 44-18, in the semifinals of the KCAA State Tournament on Friday at the Eudora Community Center. No. 5 seed Veritas will play in the third-place game at 3 p. m . to d ay a ga i n s t WAHAA. “Although we were disappointed, we still have some-

thing to shoot for,” Veritas coach Kevin Shelton said. “We wanted to win, and it was a difficult loss, but third place would be a great accomplishment for us.” Manhattan Chief beat Veritas for the fourth time this season. Kayli Farley led the Eagles (13-10) with eight points.

ture,” Goodrich said. “But then again, we can’t look too far ahead, because we have to look at the game we’re about to play. We have to look at Nebraska and get ready.” The door was all but slammed shut on aspirations of the NCAA Goodrich Tournament after KU’s 16 start to conference play. But with a 4-2 record in February and with three winnable games (Nebraska, at Iowa State, Kansas State) left on the Jayhawks’ schedule, it’s no longer out of the question.

for right now. We are playing for something bigger than just this season,” Capel said. “To respect the game, to respect our program, to play the game and prepare the right way all the time, we are trying to develop really good habits that will sustain us through anything, whether we go through adversity, whether we go through success. It’s one of the things we are trying to teach right now,” he added. The Sooners, who suffered a 61-47 loss at Texas A&M on Wednesday (they’ve also lost to Kansas State, Nebraska, Missouri, Texas and Oklahoma State in February), haven’t shown much firepower in averaging 66.0 points a game. Andrew Fitzgerald, a 6-8 sophomore from Baltimore, and Davis, 6-5 from Elk City, Okla., lead the team at 13.3 and 13.0 points a game respectively. Steven Pledger, a 6-4 sophomore from Chesapeake, Va., averages 11 .4 points a game. Cameron Clark, a 6-6 freshman from Sherman, Texas, and Carl Blair, a 6-2 sophomore from Houston, check in at 9.6 and 7.6 ppg respectively. “It’s a complete opposite,” Davis told the Daily Oklahoman, comparing last year’s slide to this year’s. “Through streaks of losses throughout the year, I don’t think there’s been any point in time guys have said, ‘This season is over with, we might as throw in the towel.’ We’ve kept fighting.” The fall has been rapid in Norman. OU opened last season ranked in the top 20 in the preseason. “We’re still working hard,” Pledger told the Oklahoman. “Last year when we got on that losing streak, everyone was down. No one wanted to work anymore. People kind of

“Early in her career, she would pass and get caught watching,” Henrickson said. “(Now) she’s moving without the ball, and as we’ve had better ball movement, it ends up back in her hands, and she’s been aggressive.” Goodrich hasn’t been the recipient of set plays, either. And Henrickson is quick to point out Goodrich hasn't just been making layups. Goodrich instead has been picking and choosing when to spot up or pull up for a jumper, the improvement of which she attributes to an increased focus on footwork and hand placement on the ball. “Just how she’s able to score now is much more impressive,” Henrickson said.

Favoring OSU: Self, a native of Edmond, Okla., who played basketball at Oklahoma State, was asked if he disliked the Sooners growing up. “Yeah, absolutely. I think it’s hard to grow up in a state where you go to the rival school and not feel that way, especially if you play collegiate sports. Without a doubt that’s the case,” Self said. “We grew up in Oklahoma feeling the same way about the Sooners that people here feel about the Tigers or Wildcats. It’s par for the course.” OU sliced a 15-point halftime deficit to 55-50 before ultimately falling, 77-62, last Saturday at Kansas State. “We’ve gotten better,” Capel told the Oklahoman. “We’re just in a very tough conference and played a very tough non-conference schedule, which probably wasn’t the best thing for this group or guys gaining a lot of confidence (early)... We’ve done a lot of good things. Unfortunately it hasn’t correlated into as many wins as we would like.” ●

Film sessions: During the losing streak, Capel has shown his players film of positive plays during games. “Sometimes a guy has to be reminded, especially when you’re being beat up," Capel said. “That’s what losing feels like. You’re beat up. You don’t feel good. But for the most part our guys feel good about the effort they’re giving. It’s just mistakes we have to clean now, Jeff has done a great up.” ● job,” Self said. “They are a difStats, facts: KU, which has ferent team than they were when the season started. won six in a row over OU, They’ve lost some close leads the series, 135-64. ...

But the Firebirds’ secondhalf run was too much, and the Lions couldn’t recover. Wood reminded his players after the game that they couldn’t worry about the result long. The seventhseeded Lions (6-14) travel to second-seeded Olathe Northwest for substate play Thursday. “The easy thing to do is to feel sorry for ourselves, have three bad days of practice, show up to Olathe Northwest and get beat,” Wood said. “The hard thing to do is compete and be a Lawrence High kid and go out there and give them everything we got.” The Firebirds (10-10) will play Topeka High on Thursday in the first round of substate. Since Topeka lost to Manhattan on Friday, the Firebirds will host the game. Duncan said most coaches would downplay the victory, especially considering it didn’t affect the sub-state pairings much. But he was happy to acknowledge that both the spirited environment and the postgame ceremony honoring senior Paige Rothwell were easy to take for granted. “For one night, it’s a special event,” Duncan said. “It’s great for everybody: fans,

10 points and 9.5 assists and is shooting 41 percent from three, all big reasons why KU is second in the Big 12 with a 47 percent field-goal percentage. “Her passing decisions, her playmaking ability,” Henrickson said. “She’s playing at a really high level right now, and she’s elevating everybody around her, I think.” “Angel’s our motor,” Henrickson added. Her court vision and softpassing touch from the point always have been strengths, but Goodrich is advancing her offensive repertoire: deciding when to push the tempo, when to slow up and run a play, and, now, when to look for her own shot.

EUDORA — Veritas Christian’s boys basketball team and Topeka Cair Paravel traded threepoint baskets throughout the final quarter, but Veritas came up just short in the end Friday.

Roundup The Associated Press

Cavaliers 115, Knicks 109 C L E V E L A N D — Carmelo Anthony left with a sore elbow and a bruised ego. His second game with the New York Knicks was embarrassing. Playing the final quarter with numbness in his right elbow, Anthony missed a key late free throw and fouled out of his first road game with the Knicks, who took Cleveland too lightly and were beaten on Friday night by the fired-up Cavaliers. Anthony, acquired earlier this week from Denver in a blockbuster trade, finished with 27 points but missed a foul shot with 25 seconds left that would have brought New York within two. Afterward, he said he banged his elbow in the second half and that it has been bothering him for some time. “I don’t like to make any excuses, this was a game, regardless of how long we’ve been together, that we should have got,” said Anthony, who had a gauze wrap on his elbow. “It comes down to everybody being on the same page defensively. “We’ve only had four practices to get it together. No excuses.” Tony Dejak/AP Photo Amare Stoudemire added 31 points for New York. NEW YORK’S CARMELO ANTHONY (7) DRIVES THE LANE against Cleveland’s Antawn Jamison (4).

started, and Jason Maxiell came off the bench. McGrady, Prince, Wallace and Stuckey did not start. Coach John Kuester wasn’t around for the finish — he was ejected in the second quarter after he was whistled for two quick technical fouls arguing a non-call. Kuester called the personnel situation “an internal matter.” The Pistons are home today against Utah and there was no word if the missing players would be available. “I feel badly for John Kuester,” Lakers coach Phil Jackson said. “I think it’s a black eye for the league. I know Detroit is in disarray right now at some level. You worry about a coach and, you know, his psyche after something like that happens.” Detroit dropped to 21-39

Several Pistons miss shootaround PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Several Detroit Pistons skipped at least part of the team’s shootaround and sat out a 11094 loss to the Philadelphia 76ers on Friday night, the latest blemish in a difficult season for the fallen franchise. Team spokesman Cletus Lewis said Richard Hamilton, Chris Wilcox, Rodney Stuckey and Austin Daye missed the bus, with Stuckey and Daye able to arrive late. Tayshaun Prince, Tracy McGrady and Ben Wallace also missed the shootaround. Lewis said Prince had an upset stomach, McGrady had a headache and Wallace was tending to an unspecified family matter. The Pistons used six players: DeJuan Summers, Charlie Villanueva, Greg Monroe, Ben Gordon and Will Bynum

and is almost certainly headed to its third straight losing season. There have been signs of disharmony almost from the beginning. Kuester benched Stuckey barely a week into the season, although that was only temporary. Kuester then benched Hamilton on Jan. 12, and he didn’t play again until Feb. 5 at Milwaukee. Hamilton has missed every game since with what the team called a groin injury. The team was unable to trade Hamilton before Thursday’s deadline. He’s guaranteed $20 million over the next two seasons. Wallace missed eight games in January. He’s battled ankle problems and also left the team to tend to a family matter.

Scouts gather to tell stories, shoot a BB gun and black powder rifle, throw a tomahawk, participate in a flint and steel fire starting contest along with a chili and Spam cooking contest. Mountain men and women re-enactors were also a part of the festivities.

“Does the saying ‘there’s no bad publicity’ ring true for a place of worship or religion?” ————

Bad publicity is any ‘unlike Christ’ publicity The Rev. Gary Teske, pastor, Trinity Lutheran Church, 1245 N.H.: Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, better known as Mahatma Gandhi, the nonviolent leader of the independence movement in India is quoted as saying, “I like your Christ, I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ.” To me, this demonstrates that there is indeed such a thing as “bad publicity.” For me as a Christian, it is any publicity that leads people to conclude that I am “so unlike Christ.” When news breaks that someone, especially a Christian leader, has abused his or her power over others and taken advantage of someone sexually or otherwise, that is not good publicity for it leads people to conclude that we are “so unlike

our Christ.” When individuals or groups who bear the name Christian spout venom and hatred toward people of different ethnicities, religions, political persuasions or sexTeske ual orientation in the name of Christ, that is bad publicity because it paints a picture of Christians as “so unlike our Christ” who ate with tax collectors and sinners, who loved and welcomed Samaritans, lepers, and all manner of hated and despised peoples of his day. I am speaking from a Christian perspective but I suspect that the same can be said for

many other religions that share a view of God as one who truly desires that we love one another and not fear one another. That we bless one another and not curse one another; that we show unbounded hospitality and not exclusivity. That we work for reconciliation and not rejection and annihilation of neighbors or even enemies. It is bad publicity when we live in other ways, in ways that do great damage to one another, when we are so unlike the God of grace and compassion who we worship and confess. When that kind of living hits the news, then indeed we have to live with the negative publicity of being seen to be “so unlike our God.” — Send e-mail to Gary Teske at gteske@tlclawrence.org.

From a religious perspective, there is nothing bad at all Rabbi Zalman Tiechtel, Chabad Jewish Center, 1203 W. 19th St.: One doesn’t have to be cynical to ascribe to the adage that there is no bad publicity. From a religious perspective, not only is there no bad publicity, there is nothing bad at all. The Jewish belief is that everything comes from God. Since God is good, everything that happens according to his will and directive is good. Sometimes it takes a different perspective or time horizon to see the good, but,

He and his wife need to act now before they are too sick to work and bring in an income. Their daughter and her husband have shown they don’t care about the parents’ welfare. If the father dies, does he think his daughter and her husband will take care of his wife? I believe Mom will end up homeless. Just because she is their daughter doesn’t mean they owe her anything more than the good home and education they already provided. I can understand his concern, but get her out now. — Seen This Before

may protect the parents from their own overly kind hearts. In the long run, they are not helping their daughter to become independent. No City: I had a similar situation several years ago. We let my son, his wife and their kids move into our second home until they got on their feet. That never happened. After five years of footing the bill, we told them they had to pay the utilities. After another year, I told them they had six months to get out. In the meantime, they stopped paying the utility bills, and the water and electricity were shut off. I changed

“Secrets of a Stylist” (8 p.m., HGTV) may sound like a show set in a hair salon, but it’s the new showcase for Emily Henderson, the winner of season 5 of “HGTV Design Star.” People used to watch HGTV to learn how to fix their kitchens themselves. Now they tune in to see HGTV audition people to appear on other HGTV shows. If you still want to learn how to grout, turn to DIY, where the hosts merely aspire to HGTV status. Most people have a personal style, or a desire for one. A former prop stylist, Henderson helps homeowners get a handle on their own tastes with a procedure she calls a personalized “style diagnostic” that is not unlike the Q&A process involved in online dating sites. This comes in handy when trying to coordinate the personal preferences of a couple. In the first episode, she encounters a couple who agree on little except a shared notion that their decor just doesn’t work. Using her design audit, she determines that while the wife prefers “Hollywood Regency,” he’s more given to “Country Club Chic.” Can their styles blend? Can this marriage be saved? ● Joel McHale (“Community” and “The Soup”) hosts the 2011 Film Independent Spirit Awards (9 p.m., IFC). ● The Air Force reconsiders its decision to allow visitors into its legendary supersecret lab after a captured alien escapes in the 2011 shocker “Area 51” (8 p.m., Syfy), directed by Jason Connery, the son of Sean Connery, star of James Bond legend and, Singer Fats Domino is perhaps more relevant to Syfy goofy 83.
