Baker ‘pulls out all the stops’ for music By STEVEN SCHWARTZ

It takes a skilled operator to make a booming pipe organ sound like music. Ron Baker, the new chief executive officer of Allen County Hospital, will be a guest musician at First Christian Church on Palm Sunday. He has nearly 40 years of experience on the keys — a passion that he has followed since he began high school. “Back in the 1960s, we were still in the era when people were pushing music lessons for kids,” Baker said. Baker and his sister began playing the piano in elementary school, taking lessons from Marlene Lenski. He said the competitive nature between the two drove him to try the organ, a different instrument that could show he could be just as talented as his sibling. After playing some Sundays at the Lutheran Church in Humboldt, where Baker grew

up, he was hooked on the organ. “I got to the point that I enjoyed it more than the Ron Baker piano,” he said. He then began taking lessons from Marjorie Gard, an experienced organist who saw the potential in the young Baker. As a senior in high school, Gard set up an audition for Baker with the chair of the organ department at the University of Kansas, James Moeser — who later became dean of the music school. Moeser was so impressed he accepted the young Baker into the program for the fall of 1974. “That lasted about a week,” Baker said laughing. “What happened is I really got cold feet.” Baker transferred from See BAKER | Page A4

TOPEKA — The Kansas House tentatively approved a bill Wednesday that would keep the state on a path to eliminate the income tax but at a much slower pace than favored by the Senate and Gov. Sam Brownback. The House bill, which was endorsed 82-37, uses a complicated formula to reduce income tax rates and individual deductions but only in years when revenues grow by at least 2 percent. The tax-cut bill approved last week by the Senate would more aggressively move the state toward Brownback’s stated goal of eliminating the income tax by lowering the bottom rate from 3 percent to 1.9 percent in 2016 and dropping the top rate from 4.9 percent to 3.5 percent but not until 2017. “The House bill takes a different path to the same goal,” said House Taxation Committee Chairman Richard Carlson, a St. Marys Republican. The proposed reductions in both bills would be in addition to those approved last year as part of the largest tax cut in state history, which in addition to lowering rates eliminated non-wage income taxes for more than 190,000 businesses.

Rep. Richard Carslon, R-St. Marys

Carlson and other supporters of reducing and eventually eliminating the income tax say that would stimulate economic growth and reduce the need for government-funded social programs. “More jobs, not more welfare and food stamps is the answer for our working families,” Carlson said. “They want self-reliance and the private sector of our economy can provide those jobs and opportunity if we keep going down this path of growth.”

‘Leap of faith’

Senate budget keeps increased sales tax By JOHN MILBURN Associated Press

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Kansas senators gave first-round approval Wednesday to their version of the next state budget, including language that would require legislative approval before the state could expand Medicaid coverage. The bill, which would spend $14 billion in each of the next two fiscal years, was debated

for more than five hours. Final action is set for today, which would set the stage for negotiators to work out differences with the House over spending. “We always have to weigh the decisions. We really are weighing priorities through this,” said Senate Ways and Means Committee Chairman Ty Masterson, an Andover Republican. Senators included a provi-

sion in the budget bill that leaves open the possibility of Kansas taking a federal offer to expand Medicaid health care coverage, but only if legislators give Republican Gov. Sam Brownback their consent. Brownback has opposed the federal health care act but has said his administration was looking at all options. Senate President Susan See BUDGET | Page A2

Ultramarathoners ready, rain or shine Water restrictions lifted By STEVEN SCHWARTZ

The forecast for Saturday’s Prairie Spirit Trail ultramarathon is 40 degrees with a 20 percent chance of rain and snow — a fact that has only increased registrations. We’re not talking about ordinary people here. “We actually had a couple more people sign up after the forecast was released, and had a couple more decided to bump up to the longer distance,” said Eric Steele, race organizer. This year is the inaugural event for the trail, and 138

people had signed up as of Wednesday afternoon. Steele said he expected only about half as many participants. There are 21 states represented by the runners. Vol. 115, No.102

Based on recent snow and rainfall, the city of Iola has moved from a stage 2 water warning to a stage 1 water watch until further notice. City administrator Carl Slaugh said the water levels have been high enough in area rivers that the water supply has not been coming from John Redmond Reservoir. The Neosho River Basin Water Assurance District said the water levels were sufficient to lift the warning. Under stage 1 watches, there are no restrictions on what part of the day people may use water outside of their home (washing cars, watering lawns, etc.). While no restrictions are in

place, the city still urges citizens to make good use of their water and conserve when possible. Slaugh said the stage 1 watch will most likely not change during the spring months, based on yearly averages of rainfall. “It’ll be several months before we are likely to get a change,” Slaugh said. “There normally aren’t any concerns until mid or late July.” He said the city of Iola will post information on water quality and usage on the city’s website. Iola has received 4.07 inches of precipitation for 2013, as of today. Just under half an inch has accumulated in the month of March.

Carroll E. Bland, 66, Iola, died Tuesday, March 19, 2013, at Indian Meadows Healthcare Center in Overland Park. Carroll was born May 25, 1946, in Ayr, Neb., the son of William Marion and Juanita (Wright) Bland. He served in the U.S. Army in Vietnam. Carroll married Joyce Munsen and they later divorced. He resided in Iola the past 15 years and worked as a carpenter. Survivors are two

sons, Troy Bland and wife Regina and Todd Bland and wife Tonya, Iola; two brothers and two sisters; six grandchildren and one greatgrandchild. He was preceded in death by three brothers.

He decided to open a cell phone service here after a friend introduced him to the business. “It’s a good way to help people save money,” Brown said. “I switched two years ago. It saves a lot of money.” The Phone Shoppe offers plans from as low as $12 and up to $69 a month. There is no credit check and no contract. A customer buys a phone and pays a monthly charge to keep the phone on. Customers can keep existing phone numbers and if they

have a Verizon phone they don’t have to buy a new one. The phone plans include talk, text and data plans. When he arrived in Iola Brown said he was surprised to find that there weren’t any bail bond offices being advertised. Soon he will have both businesses up and running but said “getting everything started at once is hard.” Also surprising Brown was Iola’s activity and economy. “I am impressed to see how busy the square is,” he said. Brown said where he is from businesses have shut down and there isn’t much opportunity for employment. For more information contact brown at (620) 380-6181.

gle, a Wichita Republican, said other states were finding creative ways to expand Medicaid without draining state resources and such moves deserved consideration before closing the door on the federal offer. Both House and Senate bills would spend some $14 billion — $6 billion in general state revenues and $8 billion from federal and other sources — in each of the next two years, beginning July 1. The House took final action on its proposal Wednesday morning, approving it on a 68-55 vote, sending it to the Senate. One difference between House and Senate versions was the treatment of higher education. The House trimmed $30 million from state

universities, community colleges and technical schools through a 4 percent reduction. Senators are seeking a 2 percent cut, roughly $15 million. Balancing the House budget depends heavily upon passage of a tax bill, which received firstround approval Wednesday. The task was made more difficult when the bill was amended to remove a $382 million transfer from transportation programs over the next two years. House GOP leaders were confident the two plans would come together. “It’s something that we’ve been working for,” said House Speaker Ray Merrick, a Stilwell Republican. “At last we’re cutting budgets and trying to save the taxpayers some money.” Both chambers’ pro-

posals closely follow a budget for spending on K-12 education, social

services and public safety presented by Brownback. One exception is the deletion by the House for $3.5 million in funding for a new Kansas Bureau of Investigation lab to be built at Washburn University in Topeka. Senators kept money

for the lab in the budget, aimed at helping the KBI reduce a backlog of forensic evidence waiting to be processed. For public schools, the Senate would increase state aid by $14 per pupil in 2014, raising it to $3,852. That increase is made possible by another part of the bill that calls for moving the cost of providing school transportation services — $96.6 million — to the Department of Transportation. The House plan keeps base aid at $3,838 per student. The Senate plan would be funded in part through revenues raised by a tax proposal already approved by the chamber. That plan leaves the sales tax rate at 6.3 percent, as it has been since 2010, instead of dropping to 5.7 percent as scheduled on July 1.

runners will be ready. More than half of the people signed up are ultramarathon firsttimers. “The people that have climbed into the deep psychological aspect are getting pretty pumped about it,” Steele said with a laugh. The race will start promptly at 6 a.m. on Saturday from Ottawa for the 100-milers, and 8 a.m. for the 50-milers. He said for those looking to cheer on the runners, they will be running through Garnett between 10 a.m. and 2

p.m., and then up to Iola between 2 p.m. and 6 p.m. The runners have 30 hours to complete the 100-mile portion and 28 hours to complete the 50-mile portion. Rain or shine, it is going to be a long day for the runners. But, he hopes the race will go as smoothly as possible — to reflect the hard work of the organizers. “We are really passionate and driven to put on the best event we can,” Steele said. “We have been working our butts off for the past couple of weeks.”

have been pushing advertisement for the race for several months. Normally a bad forecast would deter people from signing up for a race. But, Steele said the ultramarathoners are a different breed. There are 50-mile and 100-mile distances for Saturday’s race. It begins in Ottawa, follows the trail down to Iola and then back to Ottawa. He said the weather provides its own unique challenges for the race

Obama offers assurances during Israel visit By EDMUND SANDERS and CHRISTI PARSONS Tribune Washington Bureau

JERUSALEM — In a much-anticipated visit laden with symbols of friendship and words of assurance, President Barack Obama and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu attempted to set aside past differences Wednesday and project a united front over how to tackle the threat of Iran’s purported nuclear weapons program and other regional challenges. But even as they tried to strike a more conciliatory tone, the two leaders stuck to sharply different timetables for potentially taking military action. Obama said Iran was at least a year away from developing a nuclear bomb, while Netanyahu warned that the Islamic Republic must be stopped sooner. Nevertheless, the men displayed a measure of personal rapport that has been lacking in previous encounters, with Obama offering a tribute to Netanyahu’s slain brother that nearly moved the

prime minister to tears. And though there appeared to be no substantive change in their positions, Netanyahu offered one of his strongest statements yet of confidence in Obama’s commitment to Israel’s security. “I’m absolutely convinced that the president is determined to prevent Iran from getting nuclear weapons,” Netanyahu said, though he added his oft-stated declaration that Israel reserves the right to defend itself. Reassuring Netanyahu, and, perhaps more important, the Israeli public, is a major goal of the trip, whose official slogan is “Unbreakable Alliance.” Obama called the U.S. commitment to Israel’s security a “solemn obligation” and said his administration would ensure that $200 million earmarked for Israel’s Iron Dome missile defense system this year would not be threatened by U.S. budget cuts. “We will do what is necessary to prevent Iran from getting the world’s worst weapons,” he said. “Israel’s security is guar-

But there is a long-standing dispute between them

over exactly when to set the deadline for a military strike. Netanyahu, who last year challenged Obama to publicly announce his “red line” for Iran, seeks an earlier deadline so Israel might still have the option to launch a unilateral attack in the event the U.S. does not take action. “Whatever time is left, there’s not a lot of time,” he said Wednesday. With its superior weapons capabilities and mili-

tary, the U.S. believes it can wait longer, and Obama wants to give economic and diplomatic sanctions more time. In one of the lighter moments of the president’s welcoming ceremony at Ben Gurion International Airport near Tel Aviv, Obama was momentarily unsure of which direction

to walk and was told to follow red lines marked on the tarmac. “He’s always talking to me about red lines,” Obama joked, referring to Netanyahu’s warning. Despite the leaders’ lingering differences, concern about a unilateral Israeli strike has receded in recent months, partly because Iran has buried many of its nuclear facilities so deep that they will be difficult for Israel to reach by itself. In addition, after Israel’s national election in January, Netanyahu is weaker politically. His new defense minister, Moshe Yaalon, has voiced skepticism about Israel striking Iran without U.S. support. Another shared concern is the growing unrest in Syria, which borders Israel, and allegations that the embattled government of President Bashar Assad has used chemical weapons against its population.

Renewable energy creates more jobs for KS workers

WORKING behind the

scenes against green energy measures are Susan Wagle, president of the Kansas Senate, R-Wichita, and Ray Merrick, speaker of the Kansas House, R-Stillwell. The two serve on the

board of directors of ALEC, the American Legislative Exchange Council, which aims to weaken renewable energy standards across the country. No surprise, but ALEC is funded by Wichita’s Koch Industries, a giant in the fossilfuel industry. ALEC’s influence on Kansas politics rubs Kerr the wrong way. “I don’t like outside organizations telling Kansans what they need to do,” he said in an interview with the Kansas Health Institute. Not to mention their obvious ulterior motives to work in the best interest of their funders. GOV.


seems to be above the fray. A strong proponent for the wind energy industry, Brownback asked Congress to protect the wind production tax credit during the fiscal cliff talks, although the budget for the Department of the Interior, like everything else, is facing cuts of $883 million due to the sequestration fallout. Wind energy development in Kansas can be credited for “3,484 construction jobs, 262 operation and maintenance jobs, and 8,569 indirect and induced jobs for Kansas citizens,” according to a 2012 report by the Kansas Energy Information Network and presented to Kansas legislators. Dollar for dollar, investment in renewable energy industries, including solar, geothermal and hydroelectric, creates more jobs as compared with fossil fuel industries, according to a 2011 study by the Brookings Institute called “Sizing the Clean Energy.” ROLLING BACK environmental protections undermines the Brownback administration’s platform of creating jobs. Let’s keep the momentum going in the right direction: Cleaner air, people on the payroll. — Susan Lynn

Standing with Rand, nervously WASHINGTON — “Stand with Rand,” urged placards at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference, where Sen. Rand Paul won last weekend’s presidential straw poll, cementing the Kentucky Republican’s status as a favorite of the conservative movement.

Dana Milbank Washington Post Writers Group So it’s with some trepidation that I confess that I, too, Stand with Rand. For the moment, I am Standing with Rand on one leg only; his isolationist foreign policy and his calamitous plan to eliminate federal deficits in five years make it imprudent to jump in with both feet. But consider: On Tuesday, Paul endorsed a version of immigration reform that would allow the 11 million or so undocumented immigrants in this country to become legal. Last week, he outlined an idea that would end government discrimination against gay marriage. The week before, Paul defied the hawks in his party to lead a 13-hour filibuster in protest of the Obama administration’s secrecy over its drone warfare program — a stance Democrats would have championed if a Republican were president. And the week before that, he was one of only four Republicans voting to confirm Chuck Hagel as defense secretary. Taken together, these pleasant surprises suggest that Paul is more complex than his tea-party caricature and more savvy than the libertarian gadfly his father had been. In his speech to CPAC, the younger Paul didn’t even mention the Federal Reserve or the gold standard. He has spoken, instead, of reaching

A look back in time 40 Years Ago Week of March 17, 1973

Miss Florence Hobart, organist at both the Baptist and Methodist churches, died at her home March 16. She was born in rural Humboldt and came to Iola with her parents when she was 2 and her father, Lewis Hobart, was elected sheriff of Allen County. She graduated from the Iola schools and then

majored in piano and organ at the University of Kansas. She taught piano and organ at Emporia State for four years and then returned to Iola and began teaching private students here and serving as church organist. ***** Dale P. Creitz, municipal band director for over 25 years, is retiring from that

post to devote more time to his teaching duties. Creitz teaches band at Iola High School. John Powell, president of the Municipal Band board, complimented Creitz on his many years of service. The 42-piece band performs nine summer concerts annually and assists in many theater projects, including the recent “Fiddler on the Roof.”

out to minorities, young voters and other Democratic constituencies. “I’ve never met a new immigrant looking for a free lunch,” he told the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce on Tuesday, calling on his party to embrace higher levels of immigration. Paul proposed “acknowledging we aren’t going to deport 12 million illegal immigrants. If you wish to work, if you wish to live and work in America, then we will find a place for you.” At CPAC, Paul told the activists: “We must stand for something so powerful and so popular that it brings together people from the left and the right and the middle. We need a Republican Party that shows

fectively outlaw abortion. Still, his message has the power of the early tea party’s theme before the movement was hijacked by religious and corporate interests. And it is powerful enough to have Mitch McConnell, the Senate Republican leader, fearing the junior senator from his home state. “Rand reminded the world that politics isn’t just about tactics,” McConnell gushed at CPAC, praising the filibuster he belatedly supported. “It’s about standing up for your values and your principles. It’s about courage. ... It was truly inspiring.” But will McConnell be inspired by the principles Paul advocated last week? That’s when Paul told reporters, in

up on the South Side of Chicago and shouts at the top of our lungs: ‘We are the party of jobs and opportunity.’” IT WOULD BE NAIVE to think that Paul, as he prepares for a 2016 presidential run, will pull off a mass conversion of Republicans to his libertarianism. But the senator, if he chooses, has the potential to build a force that could shake up politics — not a third party but perhaps an informal coalition that occupies a space between religious conservatives and tax-and-spend liberals. Paul won’t get far if he persists with the foreign policy he laid out earlier this year at the Heritage Foundation; he describes himself as a “realist,” but his form of realism might have sounded good to Senate Republicans in the 1930s. And, like his father, he makes politically expedient exceptions to his libertarianism; last week he introduced the Life at Conception Act, which would ef-

Don’t think red or blue, think green. That’s the advice of those who want the environment to supersede the politics of Republicans and Democrats. In Kansas anti-environmentalists are pushing for a rollback of renewable energy standards enacted by the Legislature in 2009. Common sense prevailed, narrowly, when members of the House Energy and Natural Resources Committee voted 10-9 to table a motion to defeat new standards. Current law requires Kansas utilities to obtain 20 percent of the power they sell to come from renewable energy such as wind and solar by 2020. The motion asked for the standards to be eased to 15 percent and extended the deadline to 2030. Proponents of the motion say the restrictions would provide relief to ratepayers, which even the utilities themselves couldn’t support. The Kansas Corporation Commission, which oversees utilities, said the standards have had a negligible impact on electric rates. A big difference, however, has been realized in the state by investors of wind energy — more than $3 billion worth, according to The Wind Coalition, a nonprofit devoted to the industry. It’s because of the energy standards that Siemens, the electronics and electrical engineering powerhouse, located a new plant in Hutchinson, according to Dave Kerr, former president of the Kansas Senate and who now heads the Hutch Chamber of Commerce. Siemens plans to manufacture components for wind turbines there.

a session hosted by National Review, that even though he supports the “historical definition” of marriage, “I’m not for limiting contracts between adults.” He floated an idea “to make the tax code more neutral, where it doesn’t mention the word marriage.” And will McConnell praise the courage and values Paul showed Tuesday, when he proposed legal status for illegal immigrants? Paul outlined a probationary system under which they could “get in line” for citizenship. Paul said that Republicans, in “our zeal for border control,” have “sometimes obscured our respect and admiration for immigrants.” This was similar to his CPAC speech, in which he charged that “the GOP of old has grown stale and moss-covered.” It’s not clear yet how dedicated Paul really is to moss removal. But as long as he’s scrubbing, I’ll Stand with Rand.

H Baker the music department to study medical technology. He eventually went on to get a master’s degree in business administration. He said there are two types of musicians. “There are those to which music comes naturally, and those who have to work hard at it,” Baker said. He describes himself as a musician who falls into the latter category. However, 40 years later, Baker still plays whenever he gets the chance. “I never did leave music behind,” Baker said. ACCORDING TO Baker the organ produces music much different from any other type. The organ is built to have variable sounds based on the type and shape of the pipe that is being used. For example, the shorter pipes have a higher pitch, and the longer pipes have a deeper pitch. The construction of the pipes can be used to make “flute-like” sounds or a smoother sound to mimic a violin’s hum. He said the combinations are endless. “That is kind of the challenge and the fun of it,” he said. The sounds are manipulated by pulling knobs, or flipping switches, that are called stops. To get the fullest sound, an organist would pull out all the stops. “That is where the saying, ‘pull out all the stops’ comes from,” Baker said. “It’s an organ

soprano, alto, tenor and bass. Instruments can differ by the number of “ranks” as well. This phrase refers to the number of sets of pipes, situated in rows one behind the other. The organ he will play on Sunday is a five-rank instrument, which he describes as a “nice little instrument.” He said large organs in concert halls can have anywhere from 80 to 110 ranks. The First Christian Church’s organ was refurbished by Dr. Glenn Singer, after it hadn’t been played for almost

three years. “It has risen from the dead, because, quite literally, several of the notes were dead,” Baker said. The organ was made by Reuter, a company based out of Lawrence. He said the company is one of the last organ manufacturers based in the United States. BAKER SAID he believes music can give people the opportunity to excel at something for their entire life. “We think maybe we don’t have the skill set to go in that direction, but it can open doors for us,” Baker said. “What I hope people recognize is not the importance of music, but the art itself.” While Baker recognizes the importance of sports for youth today, he believes the “pendulum has swung too far” in that direction. He said Iola has a long musical tradition that needs to be taken advantage of. “People fail to understand that the arts stay with you much longer than your athletic prowess,” he said. “All boasting aside, I can play things today that I never could have played in high school.” Baker’s musical talent will be showcased at 5:30 p.m. in the First Christian Church sanctuary on Palm Sunday.

Carlson drafted the House alternative because he and other GOP leaders didn’t believe they could muster the votes in the lower chamber for maintaining the sales tax increase. Instead, he proposed to address projected budget shortfalls in the next two fiscal years by diverting more than $380 million from the Kansas Department of Transportation. But members rejected that approach and voted Wednesday to restore the KDOT funding, leaving the question of how to balance the budget to be settled in negotiations with the Senate.

Wrestling standout a state champion By RICHARD LUKEN

LINDSBORG — It’s only been three years, but Seth Sanford has taken great strides on the wrestling mat. The Iola Middle School eighth-grader’s latest achievement was winning his 189-pound weight class at the Kansas Middle School State Championships Sunday, an event hosted by USA Wrestling. Sanford swept past four opponents — 12 were entered in all — to win his weight class. “I thought it was going to be a lot harder than it actually was,” Sanford said. He won by default in the opening round, then pinned his next two opponents in short order — one in 10 seconds — before being matched up against Garden City’s Zeke Herrera in the final. “I saw him before the competition started, and my first thought was, ‘Wow, I hope he’s wrestling somebody else,’” Sanford said. “He was pretty big.” Advanced scouting — Sanford and his father, Adam, watched as Herrera won his opening three matches — helped him devise a strategy. “I knew he was going to be pretty good on his back,” Sanford said. He was, although Sanford held the upper hand when both wrestlers were upright. “I was able to get him on his back pretty quickly,” Sanford said. “But he escaped pretty easily.” Sanford got Herrera on his

Seth Sanford, with his coach and father, Adam, took home the Kansas Middle School State Wrestling Tournament championship at 189 pounds Sunday. back again, but this time intentionally let him escape, even though doing so cost him a point. Sanford realized losing the

point was preferable to potentially losing the match by being caught off guard during Herrera’s escape attempts. The strategy worked to per-

fection. Sanford emerged with a 6-3 victory, a medal commemorating his state title and a hoody. More importantly, he will represent Team Kansas at

another USA Wrestling competition in Des Moines, Iowa, April 12. But first things first. Sanford hopes to compete for the Allen County Wrestling Club this weekend at a district competition in Holton. The winners will advance to another state tournament the following week in competition. In order to qualify, Sanford must wrestle at a different weight level — the 235-pound division. Doing so means Sanford hopes to weigh 200 or more by Friday’s weigh-in, or at least 10 pounds heavier than he weighed at the Lindsborg competition. “That means lots of water,” he said. “And meat and potatoes,” his father interjected. The weight issue prevented Sanford from wrestling at subdistrict competition Saturday with the wrestling club. “He weighed in Friday evening, but they didn’t let us know until the next morning that he didn’t make weight,” Seth’s mother, Penny said. Sanford was prohibited from wrestling because he was 35 pounds lighter than his heaviest potential opponent. “It’s a safety issue,” Penny Sanford said. The disqualification left Sanford disappointed. “I’d beaten most of those guys in that competition,” he noted. Now, after shedding a few pounds to compete at LindsSee STANDOUT | Page B4

Davis Street to be blocked NCAA tourney up for grabs on days of soccer games By PAUL NEWBERRY AP Sports Writer

With the upcoming soccer season days away, the Iola Recreation Department addressed several concerns Wednesday regarding traffic flow at the Davis athletic fields. On game days, city crews will block off Davis Street to allow players and spectators to cross the street safely. Parking will be limited

to designated areas at the southwest end of the fields during paractices and games. Motorists are discouraged from parking alongside any of the streets near the athletic fields because of their narrow width. The recreation department’s soccer season begins March 30.

Chicago Bears drop Brian Urlacher By ANDREW SELIGMAN AP Sports Writer

CHICAGO (AP) — Brian Urlacher wanted to re-sign with the Chicago Bears. Instead, they’re parting ways with the veteran linebacker after 13 years. General manager Phil Emery said Wednesday that the team couldn’t agree on a contract with Urlacher, for years the heart and face of the franchise. He is now a free agent after being slowed by a knee problem and then missing the last four games of the season with a hamstring injury. “We were unable to reach an agreement with Brian and both sides have decided to move forward,” Emery said in a statement. “Brian has been an elite player in our league for over a decade. He showed great leadership and helped develop a winning culture over his time with the Bears. We appreciate all he has given our team, on and off the field. Brian will always be welcome as a member of the Bears.” The 34-year-old Urlacher, an eight-time Pro Bowl player, started 180 games from 2000 through 2012, recording a team-record 1,779 tackles. The ninth overall selection in the 2000 draft has 41.5 sacks, 22 interceptions, 16 fumble recoveries and 11 forced fum-

bles. He was the AP’s defensive player of the year in 2005 and helped lead the 2006 team to the Super Bowl. “ O v e r the last 13 years Brian Urlacher has been an outstanding player, teammate, leader Urlacher and face of our franchise,” chairman George McCaskey said. “As Bears fans, we have been lucky to have such a humble superstar represent our city. He embodies the same characteristics displayed by the Bears all-time greats who played before him and he will eventually join many of them in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. We thank Brian for all he has given our team and our city. He will always be a part of the Bears family. We wish him the very best.” Urlacher told the team’s flagship radio station WBBMAM in Chicago that he was not shocked that it came to this. “I am definitely not surprised. I kind of had this feeling this whole offseason with the way the whole thing was being handled,” Urlacher said.

Brad Stevens is amused by all this talk of parity in the NCAA tournament. The coach who guided little Butler to the national championship game two years in a row wonders why everyone seems to be saying all at once: Hey, there’s some pretty good teams beyond the glamour conferences. Stevens remembers his first basketball job, as Butler’s director of basketball operations in 2001, when the Bulldogs easily won their firstround game as a No. 10 seed. They cruised past Wake Forest, an entry from the mighty Atlantic Coast Conference, after leading 43-10 at halftime. Yep, 43-10! “People at that time called those upsets,” Stevens said Wednesday. “Now they call it parity.” It’s time to find out just how evenly matched these teams really are. The prelims were wrapping up with two more firstround games in Dayton, plus a glimpse of college basketball’s future with the official unveiling of the new Big East Conference. But, as everyone knows, the tournament really gets started on Thursday. Sixty-four teams. Thirtytwo contests. All going down in an exhilarating — and, yes, exhausting — two-day mosh

pit of hoops. By the time it’s done late Friday, we should have at least some answers to the most pressing questions: Can a 16th-seeded team beat a top-seeded team for the first time? Will the selection committee look smart for inviting so many of the so-called little guys at the expense of more established programs? Will the refs call more fouls than they did during a low-scoring regular season that often resembled wrestling more than basketball? The only thing we know for sure is there won’t be a repeat

champion. Kentucky didn’t even get an invite to the 68-team party. Heck, the Wildcats’ season is already over, snuffed out by Robert Morris — a school near Pittsburgh, not some guy known as Bob Morris to his friends — in the National Invitation Tournament. Hmm, maybe that’s an indication of what’s to come in the NCAAs, after a season in which no team established itself as a clear-cut favorite. “I think it’s been pretty obvious throughout the year See NCAA | Page B4

Miami Heat extends streak to 24 CLEVELAND (AP) — The home team, missing its top three scorers, built a mammoth lead over the defending NBA champions. Just an ordinary night in Cleveland, Lebron James made it a memorable one. Refusing to concede anything, James scored 25 points — 14 in the fourth quarter — and the Heat, trailing by 27 in the third quarter, rallied for a 98-95 win Wednesday night over the

Cavaliers to extend their winning streak to 24 games and move within nine of matching the 1971-72 Los Angeles Lakers for the longest in NBA history. “This was one of the most bizarre, unique days of my life with everything that happened,” James said. “It also was one of the best comebacks I’ve ever been a part of.” He made it happen. With the Heat trailing by nine points entering the fourth

quarter, James made a 3-pointer and layup before draining another long 3 to tie it at 77 with 10:28 left. After his shot dropped through the net, James turned toward the sellout crowd in Quicken Loans Arena and delivered any icy stare to many of the same faces who cheered him during his seven seasons as a member of the Cavaliers. This was his moment, the one he and his teammates would remember.

Learning how to right childhood wrongs Dear Carolyn: My father was a nightmare. When I was a kid, he would tell me I was “a b---- just like your mother,” throw things at me, and even threw me down the stairs once and broke my arm. By the time I was 13, I realized I hated him and wanted him gone. Eventually I convinced my mother to leave him. I was 15 then and it’s been about 10 years since I’ve seen or spoken to him. Over the years, my father has sent me cards on my birthday and other holidays, telling me how much he loves and misses me but never acknowledging what he did. He always sends sizable checks, usually several hundred dollars. I’ve always cashed the checks and thought of the money as child support he owed me. When I was younger and struggling to put myself through college, I desperately needed the money.

Now I’m done with school, have a good job and don’t need the money, but the checks keep

coming. On the one hand, I feel he still owes me a lot. On the other hand, through the process of repairing my relationship with my mother, I’ve found I no longer hate my father. I’ve come to understand he is severely mentally ill. If I were a better person I could donate the money to people who need it more than I do, but if I cash the checks I’m most likely going to spend the money on myself. I’ve been thinking the right thing to do is release him from my life permanently. I think if I stop opening

the cards and cashing the checks, then I can give him back to God, if that makes sense. What do you think? — Torn. When someone has been through what you have, I’m inclined to vote for whatever you believe will help, as long as it isn’t destructive. Your idea for releasing him is not a destructive one — and yes, the way you describe it makes perfect sense to me. There’s one thing that stops me, though: “If I were a better person.” That’s both an alarm and an opportunity. The alarm is self-evident, since you spent your formative years being systematically put down. That means putting yourself down, even with just a throwaway comment, is no throwaway matter. The opportunity: Depositing your father’s check and writing another for the exact amount to an organization that, say, helps abused kids, or aids

the mentally ill, or supports struggling parents to help break the abuse cycle, might provide you with a surprising source of strength and validation. Inform your father of the donation with a brief note, even. You could also use the money — or your own, certainly — for good counseling, if “torn” is a chronic condition for you, and not limited to matters of money from Dad. Not that you need to choose either of these paths to prove your worth; you’re grounded and self-sufficient at an age and to a degree that would be impressive for someone without a rocky childhood, much less for somebody with one. You don’t need to prove a thing to anyone. Except, perhaps, yourself, which is ultimately how I suggest you frame this decision: Do yourself proud, in whatever shape that takes.

Sudoku is like a crossword puzzle, but uses numbers instead of words. The puzzle is a box of 81 squares, subdivided into 3x3 cubes of 9 squares each. Some squares are filled in with numbers. The rest should be filled in by the puzzler. Fill in the blank squares allowing the numbers 1-9 to appear only once in every row, once in every column and once in every 3x3 box. One-star puzzles are for beginners, and the difficulty gradually increases through the week to a very challenging fivestar puzzle.

H Standout

H NCAA Continued from B1 there’s a lot of parity in basketball,� said Saint Louis forward Dwayne Evans, whose fourthseeded team opens against No. 13 New Mexico State in San Jose, Calif. “Every day you turn on

set in. That’s what makes it so much fun. You really, really can’t pick who is going to win.� Maybe so, but the odds are, one of those teams on the top line will emerge as the champion in Atlanta on April 8. That’s good

“ There are no longer the Kareem Ab-

dul-Jabbars or Bill Waltons or those great players from Carolina and Duke — Christian Laettner and those people. It just doesn’t happen.


— Rick Pitino, Louisville head coach

SportsCenter and you see a bunch of upsets. But I think that provides a lot of exciting college basketball. And, as a team, I think we have a legitimate chance here.� Louisville coach Rick Pitino, whose team was seeded first overall after romping into the tournament on a 10-game winning streak, joined the chorus of those using the P word. In his mind, the constant exodus of one-anddown players from programs such as Kentucky, which essentially has to start over each season, has leveled the playing field more than ever before. “There are no longer the Kareem AbdulJabbars or Bill Waltons or those great players from Carolina and Duke — Christian Laettner and those people. It just doesn’t happen,� Pitino said. “You take a Colorado State with five seniors, they’re every bit as good as any of the number 1 seeds who play the game. “Parity,� he added, “has

news for the Cardinals and the other No. 1 seeds: Kansas, Indiana and Gonzaga. Since 1988, when sixth-seeded Kansas won the national title, only once has the champion emerged from anywhere below a third seed (No. 4 Arizona in 1997). More telling, the team celebrating at the end is usually a No. 1 seed — 16 times that’s been the case during the 24-year span. So, while it’s not unusual for an upstart such as Butler, George Mason or VCU to crack the Final Four, the cream usually rises to the top in the last game of the season. Then again, it’s not so easy to tell who the little guys are anymore. Take Gonzaga, the Jesuit school from Washington state that used to be known as a plucky upstart. Not now. The Zags are a full-fledged powerhouse, rising to the top of The Associated Press rankings and landing a No. 1 seed, both of which were firsts in school history.

Or Butler, which took overachieving to new levels when it reached the final game in both 2010 and 2011. In the first round, at least, the Bulldogs are the team trying to fend off another school that wants to make its mark, 11thseeded Bucknell. As if signaling just how far the private school in Indianapolis has come, Butler officially joined the new Big East along with Xavier and Creighton, aligning with traditional East Coast stalwarts such as Georgetown and Villanova.

borg, Sanford must go the other direction. “It’s a lot easier losing weight than gaining it,� he admitted. Sanford credits his Allen County Wrestling Club coach, John Taylor, for his newfound love of the sport. “John saw him playing football and told him he should try wrestling,� Penny Sanford recalled. Sure enough, young Sanford embraced the solitary nature of the sport. “I have to count on myself to do things,� he said. “It’s better that way.�
