Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback compared the state’s energy policy to riding an elephant. “We need as clean as environment as possible that costs as low as it can with as abundant amount of energy as possible,” Brownback said. “It’s kind of like riding an elephant. It goes back and forth on you all the time.”

On Thursday morning, Brownback addressed a crowd of Kansas University students, energy researchers and industry experts at The Oread hotel as part of the KU Energy Conference. Brownback stressed the need to balance the three E’s of energy, environment and economy. He urged the state to find ways to harvest and store Please see BROWNBACK, page 2A

Lawrence makes list of best small towns in U.S. for dining out By Chad Lawhorn clawhorn@ljworld.com

Grab a fork, Lawrence residents. You’re living in one of the nine best small towns in America for dining out, according to a national food website. The website The Daily Meal recently included Lawrence on its list of nine small towns where you can “find great eating where you might least expect it.” The site touts Lawrence as having everything from Central American food — it highlighted La Parrilla — to a “booming gastropub scene,” specifically calling out Dempsey’s and Free State Brewery. “I think our restaurant scene is

surprisingly adventurous for being in the middle of the country,” said Ann Dominguez, a manager at La Parrilla, 814 Mass. “We have a bit of an international feel here.” Lawrence was one of only two cities in the middle of the country that made the list. Free State founder Chuck Magerl, who also owns and operates Wheatfields Bakery, said Lawrence’s restaurant scene has benefited from a population that is well-traveled. “We have a lot of people who get excited about what they have seen in other places and want to bring it back here,” Magerl said. “And we still have a lot of people in Lawrence who are always willing to give it a try.”

But there also have been some significant changes in recent years in how Lawrence restaurants operate, said Steve Gaudreau, who owns Dempsey’s and the longtime Massachusetts Street staple Quinton’s. He said several Lawrence restaurants really have taken to the idea of buying local meat and produce, and also have seen the value in hiring highly trained chefs. When he opened Dempsey’s Burger Pub, 623 Vt., about a year ago, he brought in a fully trained chef who had worked for Wolfgang Puck in Beverly Hills. “A few years ago, you just didn’t do that in Lawrence,” Gaudreau said. “But now we are going out and getting highly trained chefs, and

they are the ones who are bringing in some new concepts. There are lot more items made from scratch these days, and a style that really lets the flavors speak for themselves.” Other cities that made The Daily Meal’s list of nine: ● Asheville, N.C. ● Danville, Calif. ● Ithaca, N.Y. ● Edgartown, Mass. ● Ojai, Calif. ● Burlington, Vt. ● Evanston, Ill. ● New Haven, Conn. — City reporter Chad Lawhorn can be reached at 8326362.

K-State will have food safety research center By Jill Wendholt Silva The Kansas City Star

MANHATTAN — Even preschoolers at Plaza Del Niqos, a Head Start program at Penn Valley Community College, have learned that eating more fruits and vegetables is good for them. But are the apples the food service director buys from a local farmer grown with approved fertilizers and herbicides? Or properly cooled after picking? Or chopped on a cutting board used for fruits and vegetables only, and not raw chicken? A push to get fresh, locally grown foods into school lunch programs is progress for a nation in desperate need of better nutrition, but federal officials insist that when you’re feeding 31 million children a day through the National School Lunch Program, you really can’t be too careful.

‘Holistic’ food safety To make sure school lunches are as safe as possible, researchers at Kansas State University have been tapped to create the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s only Center of Excellence for Food Safety Research. The goal of the center is to take a “holistic” approach to the handling of produce from farm to cafeteria lunch tray. The center will have a staff of four researchers, though not a physical building. The research is funded by a two-year, $1.6 million grant, according to Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack, who announced the center on Thursday. K-State received the prestigious nod in part because of its land-grant tradition and its leading role in shaping the nation’s agricultural landscape. But the university also is considered a leader in related areas, including food service, hospitality management and dietetics. The research team “had the vision and could look down the road at the questions that would enable school meal and child care programs to make sure meals are of the highest standard of safety,” said Kevin Concannon, USDA Under Secretary for Food, Nutrition and Consumer Services. Although it’s fairly rare, when an outbreak of foodborne illness requires a recall of spinach, peanut butter or hamburger meat, the story hits the headlines and goes viral. “More schools, happily, are buying locally, and we encourage that, but we want to be paying attention to food safety matters,” Concannon said in a phone interview with The Star. “There needs to be a system in place. Food safety doesn’t work on an ad hoc basis.” Kevin Roberts, an associate

professor in the Department of Hospitality Management and Dietetics, will be the director of the new center. “Kansas State has a background in food safety and experience across the food chain,” he said. And, in the case of an outbreak of food-borne illness, “our role would be to provide the science-based data.”

‘Getting back to our roots’ The school lunch program was created under President Harry S. Truman after many young men were deemed unfit to serve as soldiers in World War II because of nutrition deficiencies. The program also provided farmers a steady market for selling their commodities. One new directive of the recently released dietary guidelines is to eat more plant foods, so the USDA has new initiatives, such as farm-toschool purchasing and school gardens. The agency also has stepped up weeklong workshops focusing on safe handling of fresh produce by school nutrition directors. Last fall, the preschoolers at Plaza Del Niqos spent afternoon snack time enjoying fresh-picked local peaches and churned vanilla ice cream made with local cream when Concannon made a stop in Kansas City to visit farm-to-school programs. Concannon sat on tiny chairs and watched a girl with a sticky chin move between her peach and her ice cream. “That looks like really good ice cream,” he said. The girl wanted to know if she could have more. Concannon smartly called for the preschool teacher, who coaxed the child to eat more peaches. “It’s almost like getting back to our roots (by) tying the farm to our schools,” said Mary Frances Nettles of the National Food Service Management Institute in Hattiesburg, Miss. The institute provides the training and materials for food service directors across the country, and Nettles — who earned her graduate degrees from K-State — looks forward to working with her alma mater. “This can’t be ivory-towertype research,” Nettles said. “It’s got to reach down to the schools and child-care centers so parents can be assured the food is nutritious and safe. “Yes, we want to buy locally, but any product you buy anywhere, you need to know what happened to it before it got to your back door.”

Tickets CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1A

Athletics, was a central figure in a scam that involved more than 17,000 basketball tickets and more than 2,000 football tickets from 2005 to 2010. She, her husband and others took tickets and then sold them through brokers and others for their own personal gain. “She was the gatekeeper for all stolen tickets,” prosecutors said in their sentencing memo. She also was in charge of the computer system that was supposed to track tickets and presumably prevent thefts. Prosecutors noted that in December 2009, Lew Perkins, then athletics director, had been meeting with federal investigators regarding nearly 100 ticket stubs — all but one with consecutive numbers — that had been pulled out of a trash can in the Kansas City area as part of their ticket investigation. When Perkins called Blubaugh into the interview, prosecutors said, she lied to investigators by advising them that it would be impossible for anyone to have more than 40 tickets to any KU basketball game. She also told the agents that the computer program tracked destinations of tickets to prevent such problems. “She provided this information full well knowing that she had manipulated the system to allow for the largescale illegal issuance of tickets so that the issuance would appear to be in the regular course of business,” prosecutors said in their sentencing memo. Blubaugh left the department in February 2010, citing family reasons. But because of her experience with the computer software, she stayed with the department in a consulting capacity to help handle “the requests of federal authorities” regarding tickets, according to KU’s investigation. She even worked on

spreadsheets provided by the IRS. Soon, the scam would be exposed. KU released its investigation in May, and Charlette Blubaugh quickly resigned from her job working for the athletics director at the University of Central Oklahoma. KU’s investigation concluded that she had been “directly responsible for creating the climate of an ice cream store where the employees feel free to sample the wares without paying for them.” She and others were indicted by a federal grand jury in November 2010. On Thursday, Judge Brown concluded that Charlette Blubaugh’s involvement had been key, even as she had argued that thefts had been ongoing upon her arrival at KU in 2004 and that auditors had failed to raise concerns, leading her to COURTS start stealing tickets herself in 2006. “Regardless of whose idea it was or how it started … her conduct was essential for the conduct to continue for many years,” Brown said. In fact, prosecutors said, Blubaugh and her husband already had earned $35,440 from illegal ticket sales in 2005 — the beginning of an overall take of $841,111 over five years, all from running tickets through a single broker in Oklahoma. Earlier this week, prosecutors noted that investigators recently discovered 14 boxes of tickets and parking passes — including 3,000 tickets for the 2008 Orange Bowl — in a storage unit in Lenexa, likely pushing KU’s financial losses beyond what had previously been calculated. “Defendant and her husband enjoyed a lavish lifestyle, including an expensive home in Cedar Creek with pool and customized patio,” prosecutors said in their memo. “They purchased vacations, vacation timeshares and a motor home. And they have not

This is serious stuff, this is real and it is depressing.”

According to Hofmeister, here are the energy problems facing the country: ● For renewable energy to make a difference, the industry would have to increase solar and wind farms by 10 times the amount they are currently. And a 1,000-acre wind farm would cause an uproar, Hofmeister said. ● Thanks to rising demand in China, India and other developing countries, by 2015 the world will be consuming close to 95 million barrels of oil a day. Last fall, Hofmeister predicted the nation would be facing gas prices of $5 a gallon by the 2012 presidential election. “This is serious stuff, this is real and it is depressing,” Hofmeister said. ● The country’s energy system of nuclear plants, coal plants and gas lines are aging,

to create a market for it,” Brownback said. Kansas has potential to become a giant in producing wind energy, but Brownback said the industry needs to find ways to better harvest wind, store it and get it to market. “I am just struck with how we have this great wind, but how do we get it to market,” Brownback said. He also liked to see wind farms that can be used to make the fertilizer anhydrous ammonia. Brownback urged KU stu-

but companies are restricted by regulations in building new facilities and drilling. “We aren’t doing what needs to be done to replace the old and we aren’t drilling for oil in a material way to meet our needs,” he said. ● Meanwhile, partisan politics has led to a government that is “dysfunctional, broken and unfixable,” Hofmeister said. Hofmeister’s solution is to form an independent regulatory commission similar to what the country did in the early 1900s when the Federal Reserve was formed. “Let’s take that logic, that precedent and let’s apply it to the governance of energy,” Hofmeister said.

L AWRENCE J OURNAL -WORLD provided the government with a reasonable explanation of all that happened to the money.” On Thursday, Brown ordered Charlette Blubaugh to be responsible for $2.56 million in restitution. Of that total, nearly $2.3 million must go to Kansas Athletics — of which nearly $1.2 million she shares responsibility for paying along with four other former Kansas Athletics employees convicted of conspiracy: ● Her husband, who was paid $115,000 as a consultant to Kansas Athletics and was sentenced Monday. ● Rodney Jones, a former assistant athletics director for the Williams Fund who has been sentenced to 46 months in prison. ● Kassie Liebsch, a former systems analyst promoted to running the ticket office following Charlette Blubaugh’s resignation in February 2010, who has been sentenced to 37 months in prison. ● Ben Kirtland, an associate athletics director for development, who awaits sentencing in May. The total for Kansas Athletics also includes more than $100,000 in restitution that she shares responsibility for paying along with Brandon Simmons, a former employee who previously admitted taking and selling tickets but pleaded guilty to a lesser charge, failing to notify authorities about the scam; and $56,000 that she shares responsibility for paying along with Jason Jeffries, another former coworker who had pleaded guilty to the lesser charge. Both Jeffries and Simmons are on probation. Charlette Blubaugh’s attorneys initially had sought probation for their client, arguing that she had lacked a previous criminal record, had cooperated with authorities and still had parental duties. “She has a good moral compass that simply failed her in a big way,” her attorneys said in their sentencing memo. — Schools reporter Mark Fagan can be reached at 832-7188.

The board would have four functions: ● Determine what sources of energy should be used in the coming decades and transition away from forms of expensive, dirty energy sources. ● Make decisions on what kinds of technology to embrace. ● Replace the Environmental Protection Agency, which Hofmeister said is hindered by constant political upheaval, as the body that regulates the energy industry’s environmental impact. ● Build needed energy infrastructure. “We need an authority to cut through all this nonsense,” Hofmeister said, and he encouraged the crowd to persuade others to support it. “The vast majority of the people who consider it say ‘why not?’ The current system is not working. Let’s try something new,” he said. — Reporter Christine Metz can be reached at 832-6352.

dents to pursue careers in the energy industry and to look at their own consumption of energy, something he did one year for Lent. Brownback recommended J. Matthew Sleeth’s book “Serve God, Save the Planet: A Christian Call to Action.” “You got to do it in a fashion people will accept,” Brownback said on crafting energy conservation policies. “People want to be green. They want to conserve energy.”

Gadhafi defiant despite NATO airstrikes Moammar Gadhafi rolled defiantly through the streets of Tripoli, pumping his fists as he poked through the sun roof of an SUV on Thursday — the same day that NATO airstrikes shook the city. The alliance’s foreign ministers, while united in their aim to pressure the Libyan leader to go, argued at a meeting over whether to step up military operations that have so far failed to rout him. Gadhafi gave no sign that he’s willing to relent, despite two months of civil war and mounting international pressure for him to move aside. Instead, his loyalists pounded rebel positions in the besieged western city of Misrata with dozens of rockets for several hours, killing at least 13 people. The main target of the assault was Misrata’s port, the only lifeline for rebels who have been trying to defend positions in the city, Libya’s third-largest, against Gadhafi’s forces.

Couple recount friendships with Capote, Lee By Joe Preiner jpreiner@ljworld.com

ONLINE: See more about “In Cold Blood” and the Clutter family murders at LJWorld.com

A full room at the Lawrence P ublic Library was treated Thursday evening to a firsthand account of the lives of two great American authors. Garden City residents Bob and Kay Wells entertained a capacity crowd during the second event for the library’s annual Read Across Lawrence initiative.

The husband-and-wife duo was invited to speak in the library’s auditorium because of their known friendships with Truman Capote, author of “In Cold Blood,” and Harper Lee, the P ulitzer Prize-winning author of this year’s Read Across Lawrence book, “To Kill a Mockingbird.” Both authors visited the area in the early 1960s following the 1959 murder of Herbert Clutter and his family on a farm in Holcomb. Capote’s book is based on the violent crimes and subse-

quent trial of perpetrators Richard Hickock and Perry Smith. During their time in Kansas, Lee and Capote became friends with a number of the residents, including the Wellses. Kay said that when they first found out Capote would be visiting the area, they were told he’d be traveling with his secretary. “First of all, we had no idea that Capote’s secretary was Harper Lee,” Kay said. “She’s very warm, she has a great sense of humor.”

World’s oldest man dies at 114 Walter Breuning, the world’s oldest man and second-oldest person, died Thursday. He was 114. Breuning died of natural causes in a Great Falls hospital, said Stacia Kirby, spokeswoman of the Rainbow Senior Living retirement home where he lived. Breuning had been hospitalized since the beginning of the month with an undisclosed illness. Breuning was 26 days younger than Besse Cooper of Georgia, whom the Gerontology Research Group in Los Angeles lists as the world’s oldest person at 114. In an interview with The Associated Press last fall, Breuning attributed his longevity to eating just two meals a day, working as long as he could and always embracing change — especially death. “We’re all going to die. Some people are scared of dying. Never be afraid to die. Because you’re born to die,” he said.

Obama restarts money chase President Barack Obama said Thursday that the 2012 presidential campaign will be about how to solve the country’s fiscal challenges without doing harm to “the America we believe in.” “We are going to be able to present a very clear option to the American people,” the president told Chicago hometown supporters in his first fundraisers since formally announcing his re-election last week. “We can get our fiscal house in order, but we can do it in a way that is consistent with our values and who we are as a people. Or we can decide to shrink our vision of what America is. And I don’t believe in shrinking America.” Bracing for a fight against re-energized Republicans determined to deny him a second term, the president sought Thursday to reanimate supporters who swept him into the White House in 2008 on promises of change — including liberals disappointed at his compromises with the GOP.

ABC cancels 2 longtime soaps ABC canceled two of its three soap operas on Thursday, consigning “One Life to Live” and “All My Children” — and Susan Lucci, daytime’s most famous actress — to television history. The move leaves “General Hospital” as ABC’s only daytime drama, one of only four that will remain on ABC, CBS and NBC’s daytime schedule. Soap operas have slowly been fading as a TV force, with many of the women who made up the target audience now in the work force. In place of the two canceled dramas, ABC will air shows about food and lifestyle transformations. 5 | KENTUCKY

Files show KFC founder got death threat As it turns out, Colonel Harland Sanders wasn’t the only one keeping secrets. Newly released documents from the 1970s show the FBI investigated a death threat against the iconic KFC founder and pitchman, creator of the secret recipe for the chain’s fried chicken. The warning came from someone identified as “The General.” A handwritten note addressed to Sanders and his wife told the restaurant entrepreneur from Kentucky that he was in “grave danger of being murdered.” Sanders died in 1980 at the age of 90 after being stricken with leukemia. His secret blend of 11 herbs and spices launched the KFC chain, and the recipe remains one of the world’s most enduring corporate secrets.

After serving as KABC’s executive director for 15 years, pioneering for improved long-term care for elders, Harriet developed Alzheimer’s disease. Suddenly, her husband found himself looking to KABC not as the spouse of one of its key leaders, but as a caregiver in need of support. KABC armed him with the knowledge he needed to select the right long-term care facility when it came time, then monitor the level of care his wife received while in the facility. So when the organization asked Nehring, a retired professor of political science at Kansas University, to serve on its board of directors, he gladly accepted as a tribute to Harriet. Since then, Nehring, 90, has contributed so much to the mission of KABC that the organization selected him as its United Way

Kansas University students on Thursday elected a senior from Lawrence to serve as their next student body president. “I’ve been a Jayhawk all my life,” said Libby Johnson, the president-elect, who attended Lawrence High School. “I’ve never known anything else.” Gabe Bliss, a sophomore from Olathe, was elected as student body vice president. The duo said they would immediately get to work on their platform issues, including bringing concerts to Allen Field- Johnson house (Louis Armstrong and Bob Marley have played at KU, Johnson pointed out), more environmentally friendly restrooms and Bliss adding a bike rental program for students. Bliss said the two of them didn’t have any top issues — a diverse group of students requires a diverse set of goals, he said — but one of the first orders of business will be to plan out which of their platform issues would take the most time and work on those first. They said they would also work to open more lines of communication with students. “Student Senate does amazing things on campus, but not everyone knows that,” Johnson said. About 20 percent of KU students voted in the election, and Johnson and Bliss, who ran as members of the KUnited coalition, said they were pleased with the higher turnout figures, which nearly doubled last year’s totals. They defeated Casey Briner and Josh Dean from the RenewKU coalition. Johnson and Bliss earned 3,111 votes to Briner’s and Dean’s 2,007 votes. “It’s exhilarating,” Bliss said. “We can’t put that into words.” — Higher education reporter Andy Hyland can be reached at 832-6388.

Q:

What is the minimum distance required to park away from a fire hydrant, a stop sign and intersection? I believe it’s 30 feet.

A:

According to the Kansas Driving Handbook, parking within 15 feet of a fire hydrant is illegal. No one can park within 30 feet of a traffic control sign, and parking within an intersection or pedestrian crosswalk is also illegal.

Kansas Department of Education seeks teachers’ fingerprints TOPEKA (AP) — The Kansas State Department of Education wants to add security measures for its schools, including f ingerprinting about 40,000 educators who were licensed before 2003. Pam Coleman, director of te a c h e r e d u c a t i o n a n d licensure for the department, told members of the Kansas State Board of Education on Wednesday that the 40,000 teachers and administrators received t h e i r s t ate d e pa r t m e n t licenses before 2003, when f i n ge r p r i n t s a n d ba c k g ro u n d c h e c k s b e c a m e required for a new license. “We do have to get everyone fingerprinted who is not,” Coleman said. “I think we can do that in a practical way.” She also said more regular Kansas Bureau of Investigation background checks and

Shower peeper reported in KU residence halls

Band to play at post office on tax night

Kansas University Public Safety officers are investigating three reports of a man peeking into the showers of female KU students this week at Hashinger and McCollum halls, Capt. Schuyler Bailey said. Bailey said the suspect has been described as a white male, 18 to 21 years old, 6-foot-3, with short, light-brown hair. He was wearing a red shirt, blue jeans and white tennis shoes. A woman reported a man looked into the shower stall while she was inside it Monday evening at Hashinger Hall in the fourth-floor north women’s restroom, and two similar reports were made Wednesday morning at McCollum Hall in west wing restrooms on the eighth and third floors, Bailey said. Both residence halls are on Daisy Hill, which is near 15th and Iowa streets. A similar suspect was described to police in all three instances, police said, and the man was accused of opening the shower curtains and briefly watching the women showering. No physical contact was made, and no one was injured, Bailey said. The man entered McCollum Hall by waiting around the entrance until someone left or entered the dorm to get through the open door, police said. KU sent out a crime alert on the incidents Thursday morning asking for help identifying the suspect. Anyone with information in the case is asked to call KU Crime Stoppers at 864-8888.

The Alferd Packer Memorial String Band will perform on tax night for the 25th year Monday evening at the downtown post office, 645 Vt. Steve Mason, fiddler, said the band plays the “William Tell Overture” at 5:25 p.m. to greet the last-minute filers, who arrive shortly before closing time. He said that when the post office used to close at midnight, the theme was much more appropriate for people who had been working on taxes all night. “It’s not near as impressive at 5:25 in the afternoon, but it’s all you can do,” he said. Mason said the band started the tradition of playing 26 years ago, when Mason himself was a last-minute filer. “I had that feeling you have after an exam, that pressure let-off, that what-now kind of feeling,” he said. He wanted a party, but there was no party to be had. So the next year he threw his own party with the band at the post office. Now, after 25 years, the band is considering not returning next year. Mason said fewer and fewer people physically mail their taxes, but they’ve enjoyed watching the same families come in each year. “There’s people coming to it that we’ve watched them grow up,” he said. The band will play from 5 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Monday in the post office lobby. Taxes are due on Monday, April 18, not today, this year because Washington, D.C., is celebrating Emancipation Day on April 15, which pushes filing back to the next business day.

INJURY ACCIDENT • A 20-year-old Lawrence woman was treated and released from Lawrence Memorial Hospital Thursday afternoon after a two-vehicle accident at Baldwin Junction, 10 miles south of Lawrence. According to a Kansas Highway Patrol report, a 2007 Ford pickup truck driven about 1:45 p.m. by Lesley D. Yarrington, 45, of Butler, Mo., failed to stop at a stop sign while headed east on U.S. Highway 56. The truck struck the side of a 2007 BMW that was headed south on U.S. Highway 59 at the four-way stop. A passenger in the BMW, Yulin Yang, 20, of Lawrence, was

enrollment in the bureau’s Rap Back program are needed. Coleman and KSDE attorneys said they want background checks conducted every f ive years when a teacher applies for license renewal. Coleman and KSDE legal staff said the stricter regulations are designed to have offenses that could lead to the revocation of a teaching license reported sooner to KSDE. Representatives for the state’s teacher union, however, said changes to the current regulations aren’t needed if superintendents and county district attorneys would report arrests sooner and more consiste n t ly to t h e e d u c a t i o n department as required by law. “We want immediate reporting,” said Peg Dunlap,

director of instructional advocacy at the Kansas National Education Association. “We believe that such timely and contemporaneous notification is vastly preferable to a fingerprint-background check every f ive years.” Board chairman Dave Dennis, of Wichita, said he supports the proposed requirements. “I served my country for 29 years, and I had to get fingerprinted to do that,” he said. “I don’t see a problem with someone getting fingerprinted. If you haven’t done anything wrong, you have nothing to worry about.” Board members are expected to take up the proposed changes in June when Coleman said she will provide more details on how KSDE proposes to enforce the suggested changes.

Students using ‘sticker shock’ to warn about underage drinking “

Staff report

High school students in Lawrence will place stickers that detail penalties for providing alcohol to minors on packs of beer and other alcoholic beverages Saturday at some Lawrence stores. Lawrence Youth Coalition and FYI Club will participate in “Sticker Shock Lawrence,” which is aimed at reducing underage drinking by limiting youth access to alcohol. The stickers warn that furnishing alcohol to a minor could carry up to $1,000 in fines and six months in jail. “It is important to remember that we all have a social responsibility to do the right thing,” Lawrence Police Chief Tarik Khatib said in a news release. “Providing alcohol to minors or allowing them a place to drink under your control is not only illegal; it sends the message that breaking the law is acceptable. Both may lead to tragic consequences.” According to the 2010 Communities That Care Sur-

all the outside lights on in the house, all the inside lights. People were afraid, they really were.” Following the trial and execution of Hickock and Smith, the Wellses kept in touch with Capote and Lee. They were invited to and attended Capote’s legendary Black and White Ball in New York City’s Plaza Hotel in 1966. A picture of Kay even graces the pages of the book “Party of the Century,” which detailed the event. Though Capote died in 1984, the Wellses still keep in touch with Lee. She writes letters to them every now and again. Kay recalled the effect the friendships had on their lives. “We met a lot of interesting people through Truman,” she said. “With Nelle (Lee) it was a little different. She says it like it is. I suppose because of knowing them we met some other people and made friends with them.” Kathleen Morgan, the executive director of the Lawrence Public Library Foundation, served as moderator for the discussion Thursday night. She had only a few words to describe speaking with the Wellses, whose stories of Kansas history had people listening intently. “It’s fascinating,” she said. — Reporter Joe Preiner can be reached at 832-6314.

The youth-led event is sponsored by the New Tradition Coalition, and it’s aimed at bringing awareness to underage drinking, especially with prom and graduation season approaching.

After a recent appellate court ruling, Guy Neighbors, an owner of the former Yellow House Store in Lawrence, is returning to custody in Kansas as he faces federal charges in three cases, federal prosecutors said. Neighbors, 53, had been in custody of the U.S. Bureau of Prisons in Butner, N.C., after U.S. District Judge Carlos Murguia in December 2009 ruled that Neighbors was not mentally competent to assist in his defense. A three-judge panel of the 10th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals sent the case back to the district court over an issue related to an August 2010 order from Murguia that dealt with the administration of “antipsychotic drugs in an effort to restore him to com-

petency to stand trial,” according to court records. Appellate attorneys for Neighbors had argued Murguia’s order “invoked the coercive power of the court” that if Neighbors “did not ‘voluntarily’ take the recommended drugs, he would be held in contempt.” They argued this constituted an order to involuntarily medicate Neighbors, which can only be determined after a more stringent fourpart test laid out by U.S. Supreme Court precedent. Federal prosecutors did not oppose the motion from Neighbors’ attorneys, which the appellate court granted. Murguia has scheduled a Monday hearing for Neighbors in Kansas City, Kan. In the main case against Neighbors, prosecutors accuse him — through charges

of wire fraud, conspiracy and money laundering — of selling stolen goods from the former secondhand store, 1904 Mass. His wife, Carrie Neighbors, 49, in January began serving an eight-year prison sentence after a jury in 2010 convicted her of conspiracy to commit wire fraud, mail fraud and money laundering, 12 counts of wire fraud and three counts of money laundering. She is appealing that verdict. Guy Neighbors faces two other pending cases in which prosecutors accuse him of growing marijuana and obstructing a theft investigation. The Lawrence couple for several years have maintained their innocence. — Reporter George Diepenbrock can be reached at 832-7144. Follow him at Twitter.com/gdiepenbrock.

As a result, Nehring launched the Harriet Nehring Educational Fund, which has allowed KABC to train more than 200 caregivers since 2007. He established the Harriet Nehring Memorial Fund. And in 2009, Nehring helped start the KABC Caring Award, which recognizes people who show leadership in improving long-term care in Kansas. Recipients include former U.S. Rep.

FAA tries to quell Now arriving in Alabama: Your lost luggage controversy over sleeping controllers By Scott Mayerowitz

Associated Press Writer

Head of air traffic system resigns By Joan Lowy Associated Press Writer

W A S H I N G T O N — Publicly fuming, the FAA chief collected Thursday the resignation of the head of the U.S. air traff ic system, doubled controller staffing at more than two dozen airports and ordered a sweeping review of the entire system that ensures planes fly safely, as the government sought to reassure the public that air travel is safe despite at least four instances of controllers sleeping on the job. But present and former controllers told The Associated Press that grueling work schedules and the design of the job itself — sitting in a dark room at night waiting for pilots to call — have made taking naps on the job necessary, even if unauthorized by the FAA. One whistle-blower complained to the Transportation Department that cots can be found in one radar center, most often with controllers asleep in them. The National Transportation Safety Board warned FAA after a deadly 2006 air crash that controllers’ schedules were creating unsafe situations in which they were going into work after only a few hours of sleep. But little had changed until this week when Federal Aviation Administrator Randy Babbitt said he was immediately adding a second controller on overnight shifts at 26 airports and a radar facility that had been staffed with a lone controller. Presumably the second controller provides a margin of safety if the first falls asleep. Babbitt’s order came hours after the pilot of a plane transporting a critically ill passenger was unable to raise the single controller working at 2 a.m. Wednesday in the tower of the Reno-Tahoe International Airport in Nevada. The FAA said the controller, who was out of communication for

It starts with individual responsibility. And those individuals, they let a lot of people down when they fell asleep on the job.” — President Barack Obama 16 minutes, was sleeping. Controllers at a regional radar facility in California assisted the plane, which landed safely. Hank Krakowski, the head of the agency’s Air Traffic Organization, resigned Thursday and a replacement search was under way, Babbitt said. “Over the last few weeks we have seen examples of unprofessional conduct on the part of a few individuals that have rightly caused the traveling public to question our ability to ensure their safety,” Babbitt said in a statement Thursday. “This conduct must stop immediately.” President Barack Obama backed up his administrator, telling ABC News in an interview, “We’ve got it under control.” “What we also have to look at is air traffic control systems,” Obama acknowledged. “Do we have enough backup, do we have enough people, are they getting enough rest time?” The president added: “It starts with individual responsibility. And those individuals, they let a lot of people down when they fell asleep on the job.” Babbitt and National Air Traffic Controllers Association President Paul Rinaldi met privately Thursday with lawmakers on Capitol Hill to assure them that FAA is on top of the problem. “We take our responsibilities very seriously and believe staffing levels and fatigue are at the root of the problem,” Rinaldi said in a statement. “We will continue to work with the FAA and through our professional standards workgroup to provide the highest level of professionalism and safety.”

S C O T T S B O R O , A LA . — Welcome to the f inal resting place for lost luggage. Along a country road next to a muffler shop and a cemetery is a 40,000-square-foot store filled with all the items that never made it home from vacation. Shoes, samurai swords, iPods, even lingerie, all available for 20 to 80 percent off. When airlines can’t determine who owns a bag, they sell it for a few bucks to the Unclaimed Baggage Center, a warehouse-sized facility that would put your local PTA garage sale to shame. Past an entranceway of world clocks and columns decorated with foreign currency, one traveler’s misfortune turns into a bargainhunter’s paradise. “You never know what you may find,” says Clayton Grider, a Scottsboro youth minister who often starts his day at the store. “It is a sport.” More than 2 million of the roughly 700 million suitcases checked on U.S. airlines last year didn’t arrive with their owners. The vast majority were returned within 24 hours, typically on the next flight. But 68,000 never made it. After 90 days unsuccessfully trying to reunite passenger and parcel, most airlines sell the bags here. Shoppers seem to have no qualms about buying what was once a child’s favorite stuffed animal or a wedding dress that didn’t get to the church on time. “I feel sorry for the guy who lost it,” says Chuck Trykoski, who bought a digital camera for $21. “I mean, I’ve lost stuff on the airlines, too.” Each day, the store sets out 7,000 new items, including sweaters, jeans, golf clubs, books and noise-canceling headphones. And it’s not just luggage. Plenty of belongings are left in seatback pockets. “It’s kind of an archaeological snapshot of popular culture,” says Bryan Owens, son of the store’s founder and its owner since 1995. Regulars line up each morning to get first crack at the goods. Others, like Trykoski, who was driving home to Illinois after a Florida vacation, stop out of curiosity. Local and regional church groups come by the busload. Most people hear

Scuffles, protests mar BP shareholder meeting

L O N D O N ( A P ) — Scuffles between protesters and security guards marred BP’s first annual shareholder meeting since the Gulf oil spill Thursday, as investors registered their disapproval with sizable protest votes against company directors. Five Gulf Coast residents who had planned to tell investors about the loss of their livelihoods and health problems after the spill were denied access to the meeting, prompting confrontations with police and security guards outside the building. Diane Wilson, a fourth-generation fisherwoman from Seadrift, Texas, was arrested after evading security to enter the foyer of the building, where she covered herself in a dark syrup to represent oil. “I’ve come all the way here from the Gulf Coast,” Wilson said. “My community is gone, and they won’t let me in.” Police later said a 62-yearold woman was arrested for breaching the peace. Inside the venue, hundreds of BP PLC investors who have watched the company lose a quarter of its market value — about $55 billion — over the past year and lost their dividend payments questioned

board members about excessive executive pay packets and a lack of transparency on safety improvements. Preliminary voting results released by the company showed signif icant disgruntlement among shareholders. Around 25 percent of investors who voted before the meeting, representing 60 percent of shares, voted against the re-election of the head of BP’s safety committee, William Castell. About 7 percent voted against the re-election of chairman Carl-Henric Svanberg, who has been criticized for his soft response to the spill, and just over 11 percent voted against the company’s remuneration report because of bonuses awarded to Iain Conn, BP’s head of refining, and Chief Financial Officer Byron Grote for work not related to the oil spill. Former CEO Tony Hayward also grabbed headlines with a $17.9 million pension, $1.6 million payoff and about $13 million in share options despite a series of public gaffes that led to his ceding the CEO post to Bob Dudley, the first American to head the London-based company.

about the store through media reports and ads in the state’s vacation guide. It’s “an adventure” for the 830,000 shoppers a year, says Owens, who wears a Tag Heuer watch once found in a suitcase. There have been some surprising discoveries over the years, including moose antlers, a parachute, a medieval suit of armor, even a shrunken head. Just don’t come here expecting to find your lost luggage. Only a third of the items received make it to the racks. The rest are donated to charity or trashed. The store hopes to offer a small sliver of its everchanging inventory online by the end of this year. The airlines don’t like to discuss how their customers’ belongings end up here. American, Delta and United refused interviews. US Airways, JetBlue and AirTran acknowledged they sell items in bulk — sight unseen — to the store but wouldn’t say how much they are paid, citing confidentiality clauses in their contracts.

Dems stand with Obama on health care vote By Donna Cassata Associated Press Writer

W A S H I N G T O N — Tough reelection campaigns looming, a handful of moderate Senate Democrats voted on Thursday to keep the money flowing to President Barack Obama’s health care law despite increasing public opposition to the year-old overhaul. The deal on the spending bill struck by Obama, House Speaker John Boehner, ROhio, and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., required a separate vote on cutting off money for the year-old health care overhaul. The effort failed, 53-47, falling 13 votes short of the 60 votes needed for passage, but it put lawmakers on record — an outcome relished by Republicans looking ahead to 2012. Moderate Democrats such as Sens. Claire McCaskill of Missouri, Jon Tester of Montana and Ben Nelson of Nebraska stood with Obama in endorsing the health care law last March and they voted with their party leaders on Thursday. Abandoning the law now would have drawn charges of flip-flopping. “It’s a dilemma of their own making,” said Sen. John Cornyn of Texas, head of the committee that helps elect Republicans. Within minutes of the vote, the National Republican Senatorial Committee sent out news releases to Missouri, Montana and Nebraska as well as several other states, criticizing the Democrats on their vote and sounding an overarching theme. “While McCaskill doubles down on her liberal Washington record, Missourians have yet another reason to replace her with a commonsense Republican next year,” said Chris Bond, a spokesman for the NRSC. McCaskill had said earlier in the day that she would vote against any effort to cut off money for the law. “I voted for the bill and I think there are real cost savings in the bill,” she said. Nelson defended his vote too, saying, “Nebraska’s families and small businesses can’t afford to continue to pay the hospital bills of those who don’t have health insurance.” McCaskill, Tester and Nelson have drawn GOP rivals in states that either trend heavily Republican (Montana and Nebraska) or stand as electoral battlegrounds (Missouri). Freshman Sen. Joe Manchin has no announced foes in West Virginia and remains popular, but his state voters strongly backed Republican presidential nominee John McCain over Obama by 13 percentage points in 2008. In Missouri, the sentiment runs against the law. Voters last year overwhelmingly backed a ballot measure that would nullify the health care law. The margin was 3-to-1. Just this week, Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster filed a court brief challenging the main provision of the health care law — the requirement that most Americans get insurance.

Compensation ordered for nuke plant evacuees TOKYO — Japan’s government today ordered the operator of a tsunami-damaged nuclear plant leaking radiation to pay about $12,000 to each household forced to evacuate from the area. Tens of thousands of residents unable to return to their homes near the nuclear plant are bereft of their livelihoods and possessions, unsure of when, if ever, they will be able to return home. Some have traveled hundreds of miles to Tokyo Electric Power Co.’s headquarters in Tokyo to press their demands for compensation. Hiroaki Wada, a Trade Ministry spokesman, said today that TEPCO will pay compensation as soon as possible, with families forced to evacuate getting about $12,000 and individuals getting about $9,000.

Congress OKs big budget cuts, but tougher fights await By David Espo Associated Press Writer

W A S H I N G T O N — Congress sent President Barack Obama hard-fought legislation cutting a record $38 billion from federal spending on Thursday, bestowing bipartisan support on the first major compromise between the White House and newly empowered Republicans in Congress. “Welcome to divided government,” said House Speaker John Boehner of Ohio, Republican point man in tough negotiations with the president and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., that produced a bill no one claimed to like in its entirety. Leader of a rambunctious new majority, Boehner said the cuts in domestic programs were unprecedented. Yet he also called the measure a less-than-perfect first step in a long campaign against federal red ink, and dozens of rank-and-file conservatives voted against it. The White House also looked ahead to a struggle now beginning over national spending priorities in an era of soaring deficits and a $14 trillion national debt. “We all know there are tough challenges ahead, from growing our economy to reducing our deficit, but we must build on this bipartisan compromise to tackle these issues and meet the expectations of the American people,” said an administration statement. The bipartisan votes belied a fierce struggle that preceded passage and only narrow-

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA OUTLINES his fiscal policy during an address Wednesday at George Washington University in Washington. Congress approved $38 billion in spending cuts Thursday, sealing a deal to prevent a government shutdown before plunging into a more far-reaching debate over spending on federal programs and benefits for the years to come. ly avoided a partial government shutdown a week ago. The tally in the House was 260-167. Among the supporters were 60 of the 87 firstterm Republicans, many of them elected with tea party support. The Senate added its approval a short while later, 81-19, and most of the opponents were conservatives who wanted deeper cuts. Even before the final votes, House Republicans pointed eagerly toward a vote Friday on their next move against mounting deficits, a comprehensive budget that claims cuts measured in the trillions, rather than billions, over the next decade. That vote is expected to be as partisan as the spending bill was not. The measure approved

Thursday will finance the government through the Sept. 30 end of the budget year, chopping $38 billion from current levels and $78 billion from the president’s request of more than a year ago. Billions were saved by eliminating congressional earmarks, and billions more in funds from the Census Bureau, left over from the 2010 national head count, now finished. The Environmental Protection Agency, one of the Republicans’ favorite targets, took a $1.6 billion cut. Spending for community health centers was reduced by $600 million, and the Community Development Block Grant program favored by mayors by $950 million more.

The bipartisan drive to cut federal spending reached into every corner of the government’s sprawl of domestic programs. Money to renovate the Commerce Department building in Washington was cut by $8 million. The Appalachian Regional Commission, a New Deal-era program, was nicked for another $8 million and the National Park Service by $127 million more. While Republicans touted the cuts in the measure, Democratic supporters pointed to even deeper reductions or even outright program terminations that Republicans had been forced to give up in negotiations. That list included a family planning program for lowerincome families, federal support for National P ublic Radio and the funds needed to implement the health care law that Congress approved a year ago and Republicans have voted to repeal.

Not enough or too much? While Republicans were unable to muster a 217-vote majority for the spending cuts on their own, the huge freshman class broke heavily in favor, 60-27. Normally vocal, GOP critics of the legislation did not speak during debate. “This is done. I’m prepared to move on to bigger issues,” said one of them, Rep. Bill Huizinga of Michigan. While reaching across party lines, the legislation produced few if any enthusiastic supporters. Referring to a late lawmaker known for his sense of

humor, Rep. Jim Moran, DVa., told the House, “As Mo Udall once said, if you can find something everyone agrees on, you can count on it being wrong.” Moran, a veteran Virginia Democrat, said the bill “does contain more good than bad.” That put him in the same category as Rep. Jeff Landry, a first-term Louisiana Republican who won office last fall with the support of tea party activists. The bill does not cut enough, he said, but he added, “I came to Washington to cut spending.” He also cited a provision banning the District of Columbia from using its own money to pay for most abortions for lowerincome women. Liberals were unsparing in their criticism. “This bill is nothing more than a tea party checklist targeting programs that help the most vulnerable,” said Rep. Barbara Lee, DCalif. She pointed to cuts in food programs for the poor, grants to local police departments and help for children of inmates. “It’s shameful, a moral disgrace.” As expected, the Republican leadership swung behind the bill. Democrats, consigned to the minority in last year’s elections, splintered. Rep. Nancy Pelosi of California, the party’s leader, voted against the bill without speaking on the floor. The second in command, Rep. Steny Hoyer of Maryland, supported it, and in doing so, cited a need to compromise for the government to function.

National divide In his Wednesday speech, President Obama set a divisive tone for the 2012 election campaign.

P

resident Obama launched his 2012 reelection campaign Wednesday afternoon in his speech to students at George Washington University. It had been billed as an address about the federal budget, but, from the outset, it was the kickoff for his re-election bid. Unfortunately, his speech centered on dividing the people in this country based on class and wealth. This is not healthy for this country and is guaranteed to ignite extremely strong debate in Congress as well as throughout the country. As has been noted numerous times, just a few days before the November 2008 presidential election, Obama told a large crowd of supporters that they were only days away from the opportunity to bring about “fundamental” changes in this country. He acknowledged in his Wednesday speech that this is his vision and goal for America. He wants government to control the lives and activities of more and more Americans, a gradual drive into a welfare state, socialism and class-against-class divisions. It will pit old against young and vice versa, poor against wealthy and vice versa, healthy against the ill and vice versa, the employed against the unemployed and vice versa, and on and on. It’s not healthy for this country, and he is using the historic debt he is creating as justification for his long-time and deep desire to change this country. As he said, it is a fundamental change. It should be remembered that his former chief of staff said, “never let a good crisis go to waste.” The president is following up on this advice and using the very genuine fiscal crisis facing this country as the platform for his re-election effort. Other Obama campaign advisers prior to the 2008 election also advised him that “fear” is the most powerful and effective device to use in a campaign. Obama’s upcoming debt ceiling and budget battles and the current fiscal crisis all feed into the Obama re-election strategy. There seems justification to have serious concerns about the Obama dream and vision for changing this country. For sure, it is almost guaranteed to bring about a heated, bitter, divisive campaign that has the potential to divide rather than bring this country together. How many Americans want to fundamentally change this country? This will be the question facing those who go to the polls in 2012 to select this nation’s president.

Egyptian leaders share hopes, concerns CAIRO — They make an unlikely trio of “founding fathers” for the new Egypt: One is a wily oldschool politician, the second is a reticent scientist who won the Nobel Peace Prize, and the third is a hard-nosed business tycoon. But they are emerging as the country’s senior political voices and, interestingly, they share similar views about Egypt’s transition to democracy. The three leaders are Amr Moussa, a former foreign minister and head of the Arab League; Mohammed El Baradei, the former director of the International Atomic Energy Agency; and Naguib Sawiris, the chief executive of Orascom, a giant telecommunications company that is Egypt’s biggest private employer. Egyptian analysts describe the first two as potential future presidents and the third as a possible kingmaker. (Sawiris, a Coptic Christian, wouldn’t have a chance in a presidential bid, but he has just formed a powerful new political party.) These senior figures didn’t make the revolution; that was the work of the young activists who gathered in Tahrir Square and refused to leave until President Hosni Mubarak resigned. But the three played important supporting roles. Each took a personal risk by coming to the square and supporting the demonstrators long before the outcome was clear. Like America’s founders, they face a turbulent transition to democracy — and each one

Like America’s “founders, they face a

turbulent transition to democracy — and each one stresses that the political damage done by decades of repression can’t be undone in six months.”

stresses that the political damage done by decades of repression can’t be undone in six months. The three spoke frankly in interviews last week and, despite their different backgrounds, they expressed common concerns: All worry that the ruling military council is moving too fast toward parliamentary elections and a new constitution; they warn about rising Muslim-Christian religious tensions; they see a deterioration in security on the streets and want to rebuild the police; and they fear that a sharp economic downturn is ahead. Their views converge on policy issues, too, which suggests that a

moderate post-revolutionary consensus is emerging. They all favor a market economy, but one that protects and subsidizes Egypt’s poorest citizens; they support continued ties with America, including cooperation between the U.S. and Egyptian militaries; and they want a secular government that protects individual rights. Simply put, they all want Egypt to join the 21st century as a modern, prosperous democratic state. Moussa, who plans to run as an independent candidate, is the early favorite in the coming presidential election. He carries the baggage of being a former member of Mubarak’s inner circle and having a reputation as a political wheeler-dealer, but those factors may also make him a force for stability and continuity. He’s likely to have quiet support from many in the military and from some in Mubarak’s old political party. Moussa says he will run for only one four-year term, “just to put the country on the right track, protecting all the basics and creating conditions of stability and consensus.” El Baradei is a saintly figure for many Egyptians, widely admired for his stand as IAEA director against what proved to be false American allegations that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction. He was briefly placed under house arrest after he returned to Egypt in January to support the protests. He plans to run for president as the candidate of the new Social Democratic Party, which is

supported by many intellectuals and Tahrir Square activists. His apolitical style is part of his appeal, but some worry that he may be too reserved to govern this turbulent country. Sawiris is a canny businessman who built Orascom into what he says is the eighth largest telecommunications company in the world. In a country where many business tycoons are corrupt, he’s seen as independent and competent. Sawiris is blunt in expressing the concern shared by all three that the Muslim Brotherhood and other Islamist groups could hijack Egypt’s democracy: “My fear is that we will get an Iraniantype regime here, and it’s a real fear,” he says. Moussa and El Baradei say Egypt needs time to learn how to make democracy work. This is why both urged “no” in the referendum on the military’s plan for quick elections and a patchwork temporary constitution. But the military’s plan, backed by the Muslim Brotherhood, was approved by 77 percent of the voters. El Baradei warns that in the short run, “we have a country that’s falling apart.” But like Moussa and Sawiris, he thinks a democratic Egypt will succeed if given time. “Every time you feel low, you think: What has happened here is so good, to see this part of the world waking up to the 21st century. It’s worth a try.”

Petey Cerf of Lawrence was urging Douglas County commissioners to YEARS support the idea of AGO a building or renoIN 1986 vation fund for Valleyview Care Home, the 25-year-old county-owned nursing home at 2518 Ridge Court. Cerf pointed out that major changes were needed at the home and that many Lawrence residents were choosing the Eudora Nursing Center over Valleyview when selecting a nursing home for family members.

“Children playing with matches” was the probable cause listed in an YEARS East Lawrence fire. AGO A former horse IN 1971 barn, described by its owner Valentine Romero as being 99 years old, at the rear of the property at 909 Pa. had burned on a recent afternoon. Lawrence firemen estimated the building’s value at $400 and said that it had contained about 100 bales of alfalfa hay, valued at $100.

Voter ID costly

disability, age, illness, transportation, financial issues, or inability to take time away from work to obtain the ID. As for costs, the law entails: ● $3 million to provide free IDs to an estimated 11 percent of already eligible voters without governmentissued photo IDs (to charge fees is an unconstitutional poll tax); ● Another $3.5 million to provide updated IDs to the 200,000 voters who move into or within Kansas annually (U.S. Census); ● Unknown costs to local governments for poll worker training, public education campaigns, and defense against potential lawsuits. Who will bear these costs? Funding was not allocated in the state's 2011-2012 budget. Legislators ought to be concerned about costly mandates that discourage participation by eligible voters. Kay Hale, president League of Women Voters of Lawrence/Douglas County

To the editor: For 70 years, the nonpartisan League of Women Voters of Lawrence/Douglas County has promoted voter education, registration and active participation by voting. Therefore, we are concerned about the recently enacted “voter photo identification” law, because of its addition to declining voter participation. This law makes registration and voting more cumbersome, requiring a government issued current and valid photo identification to be shown at the polls by 2012 and proof of citizenship by 2013 to register to vote. Research by the League of Women Voters (data from the Brennen Center for Justice at the New York School of Law) reveals likely unfortunate consequences of the law: ● Immeasurable burdens for the elderly, disabled, indigent or anyone, such as newcomers to Kansas, who must seek the required ID or those who must locate citizenship docuTo the editor: mentation; David Chartrand’s little story about ● Disenfranchising registered or potential voters without valid ID due to his ailing Labrador dog (“A Dog’s Last

It works whether you’re a dog or cat person and it brought back many fond and painful memories of old, dear and now-absent friends. In this era of ideological death matches and polarization, this story is a reminder of something simple and good that we all can share. I hope you will carry more of his work in the future. Richard L. Warrick, Lawrence

Voters care To the editor: I care about Lawrence. I voted. I also voted early. It took me one minute and 45 seconds to walk into the Douglas County Courthouse and vote. When only 13.4 percent of registered voters in Douglas County go to the polls, something is upside down. Why don’t the citizens of Lawrence, not just the registered, care? Why are we risking American lives in Iraq, Afghanistan and now Libya in pursuit of American values, including

ESTABLISHED 1891

— David Ignatius is a columnist for Washington Post Writers Group.

Accurate and fair news reporting. No mixing of editorial opinion with reporting of the news. ● Safeguarding the rights of all citizens regardless of race, creed or economic stature. ● Sympathy and understanding for all who are disadvantaged or oppressed. ● Exposure of any dishonesty in public affairs. ● Support of projects that make our community a better place to live.

the right to vote? Bob Schumm cares. Hugh Carter cares. Mike Dever cares. Our beloved former mayor and my future barber (when I turn 65) cares. Obviously the newly elected and current school board members are concerned citizens and care. Having served as the United Way chairman and as chairman of the Board of Zoning Appeals in the 1970s, I realize the hours of preparation that go into doing the job they were elected for. At the present time, it appears our current elected officials are only representing 13.4 percent of the 63,811 registered voters. Why don’t people care about Lawrence? Ozzie and Harriet live here. So does Beaver Cleaver and Dennis the Menace. This is our hometown. So does Doug Compton, Paul Werner and the Fritzels, who are currently or proposing to spend $17 million downtown. They care. Douglas County Clerk Jamie Shew called the election a “pretty good turnout.” Whew! Ask Butler what 18 percent shooting was worth. You lose. Vote! Dennis Barritt, Lawrence

From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for April 15, 1911: YEARS “DEVASTATION AGO TODAY OVER TORIN 1911 NADO-SWEPT LAWRENCE — Two lives, a score of injured, a demolished factory district, and thousands of dollars property loss is the terrible toll exacted from Lawrence by the tornado, which swept over the city at the supper hour (on April 12, 1911). The storm broke over the city with a torrent of rain at 6:55, and at 8:20 it suddenly ceased, to be succeeded by an ominous quiet. Touching at the Kasold farm southwest of town, it lifted momentarily only to dip again at Doubleday’s. It swerved to the northeast. … The tornado came from the southwest and passed through the city in a northeasterly direction, devastating and scattering buildings in its path, almost totally wrecking the 600 block in Massachusetts street, wrecking many residences in West Lawrence and converting a section of North Lawrence into kindling wood. ... The full fury of the storm was wreaked on the Lawrence business district. Wilder’s shirt factory and laundry is almost a total loss. The Paper Mill was in the vortex of the storm and sustained damage to every department. ... The Bowersock Mills have a few corners crumbled at the top and a few wooden awnings torn loose. The large plate glass windows in the Lawrence National were shattered.” — Compiled by Sarah St. John

Bioscience Authority to fund Wichita group WICHITA — The Kansas Biosciences Authority says it will continue funding a Wichita research center that has been central to a dispute with Gov. Sam Brownback. KBA board Chairman John Carlin says the center in Wichita could eventually get the full $20 million that supporters say it was promised. Carlin has said the exact amount of funding was Carlin never specified. Researchers at the center, called CIBOR, work to turn aircraft materials into medical advances. Brownback had demanded that the authority fund the center. The Wichita Eagle reported Thursday that state lawmakers began investigating the authority after CIBOR scientists complained they were not getting the $20 million research funding they had been promised. The Johnson County Attorney is conducting a criminal probe of the authority after complaints about what some called excessive spending.

Selby bids KU adieu

tkeegan@ljworld.com

By Gary Bedore

NBA riches await Josh Selby will hear his name called when the NBA holds its draft. Why? You’re asking the wrong guy. But he will. Bank on it. Maybe even in the first round. Brace yourself: He might even be a lottery pick. Why? Beats me. What has he done to merit an NBA uniform? Well, nothing, but as we’ve all heard a billion times, the NBA drafts on potential. Fine, but guys drafted on potential have loud, exciting tools. They’re phenomenal jumpers or remarkably quick or insane shooters or they have great size or they’re lock-down defenders. This is where I confess to being lost. And this was how one NBA insider who spoke on the condition of anonymity articulated what I’m missing about Selby’s potential. “His athleticism, his speed,” John Doe said. “He can defend a one or a two. His upside is unlimited. I like his size, and he has an athletic body.” Teammates painted a different picture of Selby the athlete in practice than the guy the rest of us saw playing in games, so often seemingly on the periphery of the action. This next quote from Mr. Doe blew me away. “He’s going to go to one-onone workouts and freak people out with his athleticism,” he said. From my seat in Section 13A, Tyshawn Taylor looked a good deal quicker and Elijah Johnson far more vertically explosive. Then again, I’m not even smart enough to know how ticket consultant Thomas Blubaugh could be getting paid $115,000 a year by the athletic department when director Lew Perkins didn’t know he was on the payroll. Nor am I smart enough to know how women’s basketball coach Bonnie Henrickson two years ago could have been given an extension without getting the team to the NCAA Tournament, a pact so lucrative the school has her under contract for three more years for about $1.9 million. Anyway, back to Selby. Joe Abunassar, owner and lead trainer for Impact Basketball in Las Vegas, did a nice job of trying to clear up the mystery. “Probably the closest comparison I can make is Monta Ellis,” Abunassar told Andy Samuelson, who interviewed him Wednesday for the JournalWorld. “I trained him for the draft. Josh has a combination of skills, explosiveness and strength that you just don’t find very often. The way he controls his body is much like Monta did, where he moves in a very unusual way.” Ellis averages 24.1 points per game for the Golden State Warriors in his sixth NBA season. He signed out of high school and averaged 6.8 points. Abunassar said he considers Selby a combination guard. “Great change of speeds off ball screens,” Abunassar said. “He can handle the ball. His knowledge of the game is excellent. He sees the floor very, very well.” Selby will be given several years to grow into the player he couldn’t become in parts of one season at KU. He never helped Kansas, which outscored Virginia Commonwealth by 10 points when Selby sat and was outscored by 20 points when the freshman from Baltimore played.

JOSH SELBY LOOKS TO THE ALLEN FIELDHOUSE CROWD after a KU score during the Jayhawks’ Jan. 29 game against Kansas State. Selby on Thursday announced his decision to turn pro after just one season at KU.

Kansas University freshman Josh Selby, who had been training at Impact Basketball in Las Vegas a week-and-a-half while assessing his NBA options, decided after a particularly productive practice Wednesday that he’d be playing for pay next season. “After working out, I told my mom, ‘I’m ready for the NBA.’ She said, ‘All right,’’’ the 6-foot-2 Baltimore native said Thursday, a few hours after posting on Twitter that he’d decided to enter the 2011 NBA Draft. “It was kind of a 50-50 deal,” added Selby, who said his mom,

Maeshon, called KU coach Bill Self on Thursday morning to inform him of the decision. “I wanted to leave, but I also wanted to make sure it was the right decision. I came out here and produced. I was getting back to my old self, looking good. I decided it was the right time to go to the NBA.” Wearing a blue and black pair of KU adidas shorts and a white shirt, Selby spoke Thursday in a one-on-one interview with a Vegas Seven magazine reporter, who was asked to track down Selby for the Journal-World. “I don’t know. It really doesn’t matter where you start, it just matters where you finish,” Selby said, asked where he thinks he’ll be selected in the June draft. “If

it’s first round, second round, I’m going to try my best to do what it takes to be an all-star.” Selby said he had no timetable to hire an agent, but already was looking at one possible representative. Of his year at KU, during which he averaged 7.9 points (off 37.3 percent shooting) and 2.2 assists in 26 games, Selby said: “It matured me. I saw so many things. I went through so many things. I grew up a lot as a person, and it made me more humble, yet hungry. That’s why I’m out here working,” added Selby, who was slowed the second half of the season by a foot injury.

LHS thrilled with run-rule win over ‘premier’ 4A Cyclones By Clark Goble Journal-World Sports Writer

High school coaches are rarely completely satisfied with a victory, unless it comes in the state championship. But Lawrence High baseball coach Brad Stoll couldn’t contain his excitement after his Lions toppled Kansas City (Kan.) Bishop Ward, 11-1, in a run-rule-shortened, five-inning game Thursday at Kansas University’s Hoglund Ballpark. The Cyclones won the Kansas 4A state championship last season. “We beat a premier team in the Midwest,” Stoll said. “Bishop Ward and (coach) Dennis Hurla are synonymous with fantastic baseball, so for us to come out and play like we did, I’m really excited. That’s something to build on.” It was the first game of the River City Baseball Festival, hosted by Free State. Last season, the Lions lost all three games in the tournament during a disappointing season.

FIREBIRDS WASHED Free State High’s scheduled opener in the River City Baseball Festival on Thursday at Hoglund Ballpark was called off because of thunderstorms. FSHS coach/athletic director Mike Hill said Thursday there was no decision whether the game against Kansas City (Mo.) Rockhurst would be made up. Host Free State (6-1) is scheduled to play Springfield (Mo.) Hillcrest at 3 p.m. today at FSHS. Senior leadoff hitter Ross Johnson didn’t waste any time erasing that memory. He scored the first run in the first inning after taking a walk, stealing second and racing home on a single by sophomore Shane Willoughby. Stoll is starting to expect Johnson to make a big impact in the first inning. “If he doesn’t, hopefully his Please see FESTIVAL, page 3B

Royals race rain, spank M’s By Doug Tucker Associated Press Sports Writer

KANSAS CITY, MO. — Knowing a heavy rainstorm was bearing down on Kansas City, Ned Yost made a few adjustments, such as employing late-game strategy in the third inning. The Royals manager had Chris Getz lay down a sacrifice, something he almost never does so early, and two batters later, Alex Gordon lashed a two-run double down the right-field line. Wilson Betemit also drove in two runs and Bruce Chen did the rest, pitching eight strong innings to help the Royals post a 5-1 rain-shortened victory over

Seattle on Thursday night at Kauffman Stadium. “We played the third inning like it was the seventh MARINERS inning,” Yost said. “The key AT ROYALS to that inning was Alex Gor- When: 7:10 tonight don’s two-run Where: Kansas double.

Former Jayhawk Douglass arrested W A U K E G A N , I LL . (AP ) — Police say former Chicago Bears and Kansas University quarterback Bobby Douglass faces trespass and criminal-damage charges following an incident with an exgirlfriend at her suburban residence.

Lake Forest Deputy Chief Glenn Burmeister says Douglass was arrested Wednesday night. He says Douglass and his girlfriend had recently broken up, and Douglass allegedly went to talk to her, tried to force open the door of her residence and damaged the frame.

Douglass was charged with one count each of criminal trespass to land and criminal damage to property. The 63-year-old Douglass appeared Thursday in Lake County court. A clerk says bond was set at $10,000.

COMMENTARY

76ers’ Collins: LeBron more Magic than Michael By Ashley Fox The Philadelphia Inquirer

If you had to pick, if you could be only one, which superstar would you choose? The greatest scorer of all time, that tongue-wagging assassin who only got better as the moment got bigger? Or the greatest passer of all time, that smooth distributor who picked opponents apart with such precision it seemed as if he were seeing the game in slow motion? It is an impossible choice: Michael Jordan or Magic Johnson. There is no wrong answer. But the answer is telling, because while Jordan and Johnson are two of the greatest ever, their games and their motivations were very different. Score first, or pass first. There was artistry in each. When Doug Collins, as astute a basketball observer as there is in the game, looks at LeBron James, there is no question which former great he sees. “I’ve always felt LeBron James is more Magic Johnson than he is more Michael Jordan,” Collins said this week. It was a huge compliment, not a slight. Though James can be a 30-points-a-night scorer and can take over a game, Collins thinks he is best suited for the role he often plays in Miami: facilitator. With the ball in his hands, particularly on the break, James is virtually unstoppable. He can pass to Dwyane Wade or Chris Bosh. He can drive. He can dish. Or he can finish. That is what keeps Collins up at night as he prepares his 76ers team for its firstround playoff series against the secondseeded Heat. Game 1 is Saturday in Miami. “I think he is more of a triple-double guy than he is a 30-points-per-night guy,” Collins said. “I think he’s much more comfortable doing that. I think that’s what he loves to do. I think in Cleveland he had to score that many points for them to be the team they are, but I’ve always said, to me, one of the best parts of his game is his passing. If you get him on the break, you can’t stop him. Obviously, that’s going to be a real key for us.” Moving from Cleveland to Miami was not the easiest transition for James. He went from being the main scoring option to being one of three. It took time for James, Wade, and Bosh to learn to play together, to figure out who would take the shot when the shot clock was ticking down, or who would have the ball when the game was on the line. Collins distinctly remembers seeing it finally click for James. It was Dec. 2, and the Heat were playing in Cleveland for the first time. It was James’ homecoming, and the fans who once had cheered him jeered him. James responded by making 15 of 25 shots from the field and scoring 38 points. Going into that game, the Heat were 11-8 and far from the juggernaut most people expected. But that win helped catapult the Heat, who won 18 of their next 19 games, while the Cavaliers, 7-10 heading into the night, lost 34 of their next 35. “That was the first time I really saw that bounce and that LeBron that I’ve seen through the years broadcasting,” Collins said. “He had an incredible night. The franchises went in total opposite ways that night.” In 79 games this season, James averaged 26.7 points, 7.5 rebounds, and 7.0 assists. It was his lowest scoring average since his rookie season in 2003-04, while the rebound and assist totals mirrored his career averages of 7.1 rebounds and 7.0 assists. To Collins’ point that James can be a triple-double player, James had four tripledoubles this season, as well as 26 doubledoubles — 18 with points and rebounds, eight with points and assists. Collins said it is imperative that the Sixers keep their turnovers to a minimum, particularly those off live balls. “If they get out dunking and running, I mean it’s going to be a highlight show,” Collins said. “(James) and Wade will lead the brigade and the parade if we allow them to do that.” And then it won’t matter whether he is more Johnson than Jordan. He truly will be King James.

Messages left Thursday for Douglass’ attorney and at Douglass’ Lake Forest home weren’t immediately returned. Douglass was with the Bears from 1969 to 1975. He played at Kansas University from 1966-1968.

NFL Mediation resumes in dispute MINNEAPOLIS — The NFL and its locked-out players started talking again, and they talked all day. The only sign of progress or productivity, though, was the nine hours or so both sides spent in the federal courthouse Thursday. Sworn to secrecy about specifics of the courtordered mediation, neither the league nor the players provided much insight about where they’re at in their dispute over the division of this $9 billion business. They’ll meet again today. Commissioner Roger Goodell, Carolina Panthers owner Jerry Richardson, Kansas City Chiefs owner Clark Hunt, Pittsburgh Steelers owner Art Rooney and New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft were among those on hand for the closed-door session with U.S. Magistrate Judge Arthur Boylan. NFLPA executive director DeMaurice Smith was joined by attorneys, linebackers Ben Leber and Mike Vrabel, as well as Hall of Fame defensive end Carl Eller. “We had a full day. It was constructive to get together,” said Jeff Pash, the NFL’s lead negotiator. “The chief magistrate judge is working very hard, and I give him a lot of credit for really trying to move the parties toward a solution.”

GOLF Na sets record for worst par-4 hole SAN ANTONIO — Kevin Na will remember the ninth hole at the Texas Open for a long time. Na set a new low Thursday for the worst par-4 hole in the PGA Tour record books, shooting a 16 with a nightmarish sequence of shots. Na’s problems included an unplayable lie from the tee, a two-stroke penalty after the ball ricocheted off a tree and struck him and five consecutive strokes from the woods. Na ended the first round thinking he shot a 15 on the hole. But another stroke was added after Na reviewed the video replay before signing his scorecard. He finished the round with an 8-over 80. The worst single-hole score at a PGA Tour event belongs to John Daly, who had an 18 on the par-5 sixth hole at Bay Hill in 1998.

KANSAS GUARD JOSH SELBY SALUTES the Allen Fieldhouse crowd as he leaves the court following the Jayhawks’ 70-68 victory over USC on Dec. 18, 2010. The game marked Selby’s KU debut.

Selby CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1B

He’s 100 percent now, evidenced by his finishing two vicious dunks in the second of two-a-day drills Thursday. Selby, whose first basket at KU resulted in a made three against USC, also hit several threes, his last shot in the Thursday afternoon workout a trey. “I think I’ve improved on everything. My speed. My bounce is back, my shot is looking good. My handles are good,” said Selby, quick to identify the one highlight of his KU career. “Playing in that first game, that was my best experience,” Selby said of a 21-point outing against USC in Allen Fieldhouse. “I thought the rest of the season would (be as productive), but things don’t always work out that way. Maybe that injury and everything (ninegame NCAA suspension) needed to happen to humble me a bit, to make me more mature. Now I’m on to a new chapter.” Selby said in recent days he’d noticed negative comments from some KU fans on Internet message boards regarding his decision to work out in Vegas and consider turning pro after a so-so freshman season. “There’s a lot of fans that have said some negative things. I didn’t know that many KU fans would say that,” Selby said. “I don’t know what it is, but all it is doing is creating a monster. It’s going to make me work even harder. That’s what I like to do is prove people wrong.” Earlier on Twitter, he said he wanted “to thank all the KU fans who supported me through everything and all the fans who (are) doubting me. I will miss the fieldhouse.” KU coach Bill Self said he approved of the decision and wished Selby the best. “Of course it would be nice to have a player as talented as Josh back,” Self told the JournalWorld. “On the flip side, it gives somebody else the opportunity to substitute his minutes and perform at a high level. “I think he can go f irst round. I think he has firstround talent. It depends how he does in the individual workouts (with teams). He continued: “I don’t think this decision Josh made should surprise anybody. We thought it would be the result all along when he went to work out in Las Vegas. I think Josh thought it would be the result, and his family thought it would be the result, but it would not be right to make that final until he got some feedback (in Vegas). We, as a staff, totally support Josh’s decision, and we also hope our fans support it as well.” Self said Selby battled adversity at KU. “I never coached a kid that went through as much stuff his freshman year as Josh has — everything from a broken hand to a nine-game suspension to missing 20 practices and a stress reaction in his foot that limited his movement for the remainder of the season,” Self said. “He fought through it and certainly played through injury and did everything within his power to give our team the best chance to succeed.

“Right now, from reports we are getting, Josh is playing at a very high level. I wish Josh would not have had to deal with all those things, like most players don’t have to deal with them, but I do think through this he’s become better prepared for real life. Up until his foot injury, Josh was a guy who averaged 12 points a game and was just getting very comfortable for us. For him to deal with the injury was tough on him, but he feels good now and should be 100 percent and back to the explosive guy that he is as he works out for NBA teams.” Selby said he would not be returning to Lawrence the remainder of the semester. Self said KU would not lose any points in conjunction with the NCAA’s academic progress report. “Josh made above a 3.0 (GPA) f irst semester and worked with his professors to complete his work second semester,” Self said. “I feel good about Josh leaving knowing he took care of his business the way that he should have taken care of it. “Kids do leave before the year is out. If it happens, there have to be arrangements to finish coursework or do accelerated work.”

parents don’t give him anything to eat at night,” Stoll joked. “You know, lock him in his room.” The Lions took advantage of wild pitching from the Cyclones’ Evan Burns, scoring three more runs in the first inning to open a 4-0 lead. Junior pitcher Garrett Cleavinger didn’t give up a hit until the third inning, when the Cyclones scored on an RBI single by Austin Kochsmeier. Lawrence (5-4) responded in the bottom of the third, tallying three runs after a couple of errors by Bishop Ward. In the fourth inning, junior Matt Sutliffe blasted a ball 20 feet over the right-field fence 330 feet away from home plate, giving the Lions a 9-1 lead. Stoll said the best thing about the home run was that it came into a strong wind.

Peer impressed: Ohio State guard Jon Diebler, who is working out at Impact Athletics, on Selby: “Everyone knew he was that talented, so there was always that possibility. He’s a great player, especially coming out of high school. He’s very vocal. He pushes guys. He’s a great guy, a cool guy.” ●

Joe Abunassar, owner and lead trainer at Impact Basketball on Selby: “I see an extremely talented player, very, very good player. This is my 15th year of doing this stuff, and I’ve seen very few guards with the qualities that Josh has. I didn’t follow him all year, but I think missing all those practices took him out of rhythm. Let’s face it, Kansas had an outstanding team that was playing some really good basketball. Coach (Self) went with his rotations, and that’s the way it worked out. Kansas had a ton of talent and got into a rhythm while he was out.” — Vegas Seven magazine reporter Andy Samuelson contributed to this report. Link to website is http://weeklyseven.com/

No change in policy: Self, who has had Selby and Xavier Henry leave KU after just one season, will be willing to continue to sign possible “oneand-done” players. “The thing is, you don’t ever know,” Self said. “We have had one-and-done guys stay three years. We’ve had four-year guys leave after two. I think rules will change regarding that as well (players being forced to stay two years in next NBA bargaining agreement).

to his final game last year. He improved to 4-0 against the Mariners and has won his last six decisions overall to even his career record at 50-50. The left-hander had tossed 13 consecutive scoreless innings before Adam Kennedy’s sacrifice fly drove in an unearned run in the eighth. Gordon’s double was off Doug Fister (0-3), and he scored on Billy Butler’s single for a 3-0 lead. Betemit homered in the fourth and had a sacrifice fly in the sixth in front of a crowd of 8,811 — lower than Kansas City’s smallest attendance at any game in 2010. “They said it was going to (rain) about 8 to 8:30 and it did,” Seattle manager Eric Wedge said. “We were still able to get deep in the ballgame. We had our opportunities, we just couldn’t take advantage of them.” In Fister’s three starts this 2 season covering 18 ⁄3 innings, the Mariners have scored two runs. They have four or fewer runs in 10 of their last 11 games. “If you throw 100 pitches, there’s always going to be three or four that can cause turmoil in a game,” Fister said. “They capitalized on some of my mistakes. I left a couple of balls too much over the plate that were high.” Fister yielded eight hits in seven innings, finishing with five strikeouts and a walk. Seattle’s Ichiro Suzuki singled in the third and fifth, going 2-for-4 to match George Brett’s Kauffman Stadium

BRIEFLY Kansas golf signs top-ranked recruit

Ballyhooed hurdler to race at Relays

Kansas University’s men’s golf team signed the topranked junior college prospect in the country on Thursday. Paul Harris, a sophomore at Central Alabama Community College in Oneonta, Ala., is the No. 1 junior-college prospect according to golfstat.com. Harris shot a course-record 60 in June, 2008, at Limestone Springs in Birmingham, Ala. He placed 16th at the 2010 Alabama State Amateur tournament and 15th in the Future Masters tournament in 2009. “This is an exciting day for KU golf, to sign the No. 1 juniorcollege player in the country,” Kansas coach Kit Grove said. “Paul is an extremely talented player, and we expect him to have an immediate impact at KU. Not only is he a great player, but he’s also an excellent person who will be a great addition to our university.”

The world’s No. 2-ranked hurdler, Johnny Dutch, has committed to compete in the Kansas Relays. The Invitational 400-meter hurdles will feature the world’s No. 1- and 2-ranked hurdlers, as Dutch will go up against five-time Kansas Relays winner and the world’s top-ranked hurdler Bershawn “Batman” Jackson. Dutch wrapped up a stellar collegiate career with a 2010 NCAA title in 110 hurdles, before turning pro in July and forgoing his senior season. Dutch earned four All-American honors in 2010 and eight in his three years at South Carolina. The Relays runs April 20-23.

19 isn’t old enough to be mature father Annie’s Mailbox

ers have lost their jobs. I brought this situation to the attention of the managers last year, and her behavior has only worsened. I feel it is immoral for her to be paid a full salary for not working, while others are being cut back. How far up the corporate chain should I take this without risking my own job? — Frustrated Worker

woman has some kind of “protected” status. While it isn’t fair, you cannot force management to get rid of her. The best you can do is focus on your own job and try to ignore her.

Dear Frustrated: If your mature enough to be a company has an HR departresponsible partner and ment, you can register a comfather. He wants to have fun plaint there. It’s possible this with his friends. He resents having to work for a living and support a family. You cannot force him to grow up. Frankly, you’d be better off financially if you asked him to leave and sued for child support.

— Please e-mail your questions to anniesmailbox@comcast.net, or write to Annie’s Mailbox, P.O. Box 118190 Chicago, IL 60611.

Marcy Sugar and Kathy Mitchell anniesmailbox@comcast.net

Dear Annie: I work for a small company, and like many others, we’ve had cutbacks, layoffs and reduced benefits. One co-worker uses her time to manage her personal life. She does very little work. She is constantly texting, writing e-mails to friends and updating her blog, and she blatantly lies about the length of time she takes for a lunch Dear Love Struck: You break. sound like a sensible woman, The company is paying but Emmett is 19 and not her to do nothing, while oth-

No more overtimes for NBC’s ’Friday Night Lights’ Attention America: This is your very last chance to not watch “Friday Night Lights” (7 p.m., NBC). To trot out the tired phrase, “Friday Night Lights” is the best show you’ve probably never watched. And that’s no reason you might not watch it some day. For the first five decades of the TV era, really good shows used to appear on the scene, receive heaps of praise from critics and then vanish into the ether. Critics can just do so much. To trot out another adage: You can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make it drink. Now, great shows, critically praised shows and even very bad shows, can be saved and savored on purchased DVDs or rented in piecemeal from Netflix and other renting and streaming services. In short, television has come to resemble my old haunt, book publishing. It’s not like you have to buy the book in hardcover right after the reviews come out. You can buy the paperback months later. Or wait a few years to take it out of the library. For all of its great pseudo-documentary style, earnest performances and realistic portrayal of America and Texas’ class divide as seen from the corridors of two football-besotted high schools, I can sometimes understand why “Friday Night Lights” is more admired than loved. For starters, it breaks many rules of contemporary television. It’s not audiencespecific. It’s about teens. And their parents. And their teachers and coaches. It has white lead characters and black stars. Unlike every “Real World” or unreal series, it unfolds in an unglamorous setting. Like too many places in America and almost nowhere on television save “The Simpsons”’ Springfield, Dillon, Texas, is a small town that most people want to leave. “Lights” takes its time developing characters. And nothing is “solved” at the end of 50 minutes. But if you are among the happy few who can’t wait for a new season of “Friday Night Lights,” tonight is a time to rejoice. And to mourn just a little because at the end of this year’s football season, the “Lights” will go out. ● Collectors take their vintage items to a Las Vegas expert to make them better than new on the new series “American Restoration” (9 p.m., History).

Tonight’s other highlights ● The team poses as a law firm to infiltrate the lair of Russian arms dealers on “CHAOS” (7 p.m., CBS). ● Floundering in Sherman Oaks on “Kitchen Nightmares” (7 p.m., Fox). ● A teen band forms in the 2011 young adult fantasy “Lemonade Mouth” (7 p.m., Disney). ● A posh penthouse becomes the setting for a jewel heist on “CSI:NY” (8 p.m., CBS) ● Olivia’s change of mind on “Fringe” (8 p.m., Fox). ● The new series “Killer Outbreaks” (8 p.m., Animal Planet) recalls the West Nile Virus scare. ● An escort’s end baffles some on “Blue Bloods” (9 p.m., CBS). ● The first blizzard strikes on “American Loggers” (9 p.m., Discovery).

JACQUELINE BIGAR’S STARS For Friday, April 15: This year, you forge a new path, and happily so. You feel much freer than you have in the past. This can be a banner year for you if you are open to the many opportunities. If you are single, use care, as you are likely to choose someone who might not be emotionally available. If you are attached, the two of you enjoy time away together, which will enhance your bond. Libra can be challenging. They have the same issues as you but a different approach. The Stars Show the Kind of Day You'll Have: 5Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult Aries (March 21-April 19) ★★★★ Your efforts come back in multiples. Don't take someone's thoughtless words personally. Tonight: Clear your desk first. Taurus (April 20-May 20) ★★★★★ You have a tendency to go overboard right now. You don't need to prove anything; you simply need to be authentic. You will enjoy it more! Tonight: Let it happen. Gemini (May 21-June 20) ★★★★ Pressure builds to handle an issue in a certain way. Rather than

have an argument, you could close down. You wonder what would be the most effective approach. Tonight: Nap, then decide. Cancer (June 21-July 22) ★★★★ Keep reaching out for others. You also might have some lastminute details before you enter the weekend. Tonight: Celebrate being free. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) ★★★ Be aware of the costs of letting go and relaxing too soon today. Finish up the workweek in a manner that pleases you, even if it means putting in a long day. Tonight: Join friends — better late than never. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) ★★★★★ Attention from a key loved one makes your day. You might be giddy. Be aware of your limitations with finances. Tonight: If you can think of it, you can do it. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) ★★★ Take your time, even if someone is pressuring you. Explore vagueness about an important matter close to your heart. Tonight: Vanish ... stay mum about why! Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) ★★★★★ Zero in on what is important. Don't sell yourself short. Be direct with a friend or loved one who often

Dear Annie: I am 21 and have a baby with my boyfriend, “Emmett,” who is 19. I love him dearly, but I don’t know what to do with him. He is unemployed and goes out all the time. I am stuck with two young children at home while Emmett does nothing but sleep and party. I continue to support him, but he hardly helps with the kids or around the house. There are several minimum wage positions available to him, but he’s stubborn and wants something better. He says he wants to support the family on his own. As much as I would love that, it’s just not possible at this time. Also, Emmett is mean, saying I complain too much about what he needs to do, that it will happen in time. I’ve suggested counseling because we fight so much, but he refuses. Meanwhile, he is draining my finances with his constant speeding tickets and, most recently, a broken car window that I cannot afford to fix. How do I convince him to settle for a minimum wage job and work on our relationship before it’s too late? — Love Struck for a Mule
