Construction is under way on the Ambassador Hotel at Douglas and Broadway. The boutique hotel is set to open at the end of the year.

Hotel vote about more than just guest taxes BY BILL WILSON The Wichita Eagle

The upcoming vote on a $2.25 million public incentive for the Ambassador Hotel at Douglas and Broadway is a referendum on the future of downtown redevelopment, the hotel’s backers say. But the free market/limited government proponents who forced the issue to a public vote say the Q&A on the stakes are broader: Governments project and choose winners and losers when the election they provide public incentives for private development projects. Wichita voters will go to the polls Feb. 28 to decide whether developer Paul Coury’s group can keep $2.25 million in guest tax revenues over the next 15 years. That’s 75 percent of the estimated $3 million in guest taxes the 117-room

Enterprise Elementary School fifth-graders in Megan Becker’s class learn math. Enterprise has shown marked improvement on assessment tests this year. BY SUZANNE PEREZ TOBIAS The Wichita Eagle

s vision statements go, Enterprise Elementary School’s is pretty simple: “Change is possible. Success is expected.” Principal Pam Stead says that belief drives every decision at the south Wichita school, which has become an island of hope and success in one of the district’s poorest areas. “When people know you care about them and love them and want them to succeed, they do it,” Stead said. “That really is the biggest piece of the whole puzzle.” Five years ago, state officials listed the highpoverty school as “on improvement” because it didn’t meet test targets, and it faced a host of sanctions under the federal No Child Left Behind Act. But the school has battled back. Last spring its scores improved for the third year in a row, and it has nearly closed an achievement gap – more like a canyon – between white and non-English-

Gas prices may be heading for record highs NEW YORK — Gasoline prices have never been higher this time of the year. At $3.53 a gallon, prices are already up 25 cents since Jan. 1.

And experts say they could reach a record $4.25 a gallon by late April. “You’re going to see a lot more staycations this year,” says Michael Lynch, president of Strategic Energy & Economic Research. “When the price gets

A coalition is considering a lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of the state’s new voter photo identification law, but Secretary of State Kris Kobach is confident the law will hold up in court. The need to pay for some underlying documents in order to obtain a free ID appears to be a key issue, although the Kansas Voter Coalition wouldn’t talk about specific legal strategies. More than a half-dozen groups, including the Kansas chapters of the League of Women Voters and American Civil Liberties Union, make up the coalition. “We are considering a suit if there continues to be barriers to voting and requirement to have to pay

Whitney Houston is remembered by stars, fans generation of big-voiced young singers who grew up emulating the star of the ’80s and ’90s. As the funeral began, mourners fell quiet as three police officers escorted Houston’s casket, draped with white roses and purple lilies. White-robed choir members began to fill the pews on the podium. As the band played softly, the choir sang in a hushed voice, “Whitney, Whitney, Whitney.” A program featuring a picture of Houston looking skyward read “Celebrating the life of Whitney Elizabeth Houston, a child of God.” Pictures of Houston as a baby, with her mother and daughter filled the program. “I never told you that when you were born, the Holy Spirit told me that you would not be with me long,” Cissy Houston Associated Press wrote her daughter in a letter published in the program.

AROUND THE U.S. Tax shock awaits public in 2013

Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum autographs a poster Friday in Georgetown, Ohio.

Santorum aims his campaign at conservative base BY MITCHELL LANDSBERG AND SEEMA MEHTA Los Angeles Times

COLUMBUS, Ohio — As he bounded from one cheering throng to the next in the battleground state of Ohio, Rick Santorum roused his conservative base Saturday with ideas not often heard in mainstream American politics. His audiences — Christian conservatives, tea party activists and other right-leaning Republicans — loved it. Speaking to the Ohio Christian Alliance, Santorum referred to public schools as “factories” and say that federal or state support for education is an “anachronism.” With polls showing him leading in Ohio, Santorum is trying to lock down support from Republicans who find former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney too moderate and have given up on former House Speaker Newt Gingrich. Nowhere was that more evident than at Saturday’s back-to-back appearances at a tea party gathering and at the Christian Alliance luncheon, both in Columbus. Speaking to tea party activists, he warned that President Obama was pushing the United States “to the brink of socialism, to the brink of losing our freedom,” and he brought the crowd to its feet with an impassioned call to reclaim the country. “Will you join me?” he asked, to roars of assent. Although Obama was his main target, he also took shots at Romney, mocking him over one of the former governor’s proudest achievements. Romney frequently touts his role in turning around the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City after a bribery scandal threw the planning off track. But Santorum brought up the Olympics to swing back at Romney’s assertion that the former Pennsylvania senator was “a big proponent of earmarks” during his days in Congress. Speaking sarcastically, Santorum said that Romney “heroically bailed out the Salt Lake Olympic Games — by heroically going to Congress and asking them to bail out the Salt Lake Olympic Games. In an earmark!” The crowd of about 250 people, many waving Santorum signs and wearing his campaign buttons, responded gleefully. The response was more muted when Santorum defended the concept of congressional earmarks, which are used to set aside funding for specific programs in a member’s state or district. “There was abuse and we stopped it. But the idea that every earmark is a bad one is false,” he said. A Romney campaign spokeswoman, Andrea Saul, issued a statement responding to Santorum’s attack. “Sometimes when you shoot from the hip, you end up shooting yourself in the foot,” she said. “There is a pretty wide gulf between seeking money for post-9⁄11 security at the Olympics and seeking earmarks for polar bear exhibits at the Pittsburgh Zoo.” Later, addressing about 600 people at the Christian Alliance, Santorum spoke about the role of faith in American public life and about his opposition to abortion. He also brought up education. On Saturday he seemed to

WASHINGTON — With Congress voting last week to extend the payroll tax holiday, 160 million workers will be spared an immediate tax hike. But the move leaves them facing an even bigger hit in January, when the holiday ends and the payroll tax joins a long list of levies already set to sharply and abruptly go up. On Dec. 31, the George W. Bush-era tax cuts are scheduled to expire, raising rates

on investment income, estates and gifts, and earnings at all levels. Overnight, the marriage penalty for joint filers will spring back to life, the value of the child credit will drop from $1,000 to $500, and the rate everyone pays on the first $8,700 of wages will jump from 10 percent to 15 percent. The Social Security payroll tax will pop back up to 6.2 percent from 4.2 percent under the deal approved Friday by Congress. And new Medicare taxes enacted as part of President Obama’s health-care initiative will for

say it could push the fragile U.S. economy back into recession, particularly if automatic cuts to federal agencies are permitted to take effect.

attack the very idea of public education. In the nation’s past, he said, “Most presidents homeschooled their children in the White House…. Parents educated their children because it was their responsibility. “Yes, the government can help, but the idea that the federal government should be running schools, frankly much less that the state government should be running schools, is anachronistic.“

Back in 2007, before the recession hit, the average for February was $2.25 a gallon. In Wichita, prices are up 7 cents since Friday at $3.39 a gallon. They’re up 8 cents since a week ago. Gas prices, typically higher on the East and West Coasts, have risen above $3.70 in Connecticut, New York, California and Washington, D.C. High gas prices put a strain on many people’s budgets. Americans spent 8.4 percent of their household income on gasoline last year, when gas averaged an all-time high of $3.51 a gallon. That’s double the percentage of a decade ago. They could pay even more this year, even though demand is the lowest in 11 years as people drive fewer miles in more efficient cars, says Tom Kloza, chief oil analyst at OPIS. Paul Dales, a senior economist at Capital Economics says it would take a bigger shift in the global economy – say, a deep recession in Europe or a slowdown in Asia’s manufacturing – for pump prices to drop noticeably. Either event would slow oil demand, depressing prices. But experts expect demand to keep rising. World oil demand is expected to increase by another 1.5 percent to 89.25 million barrels a day in 2012, according to the Energy Information Administration. In the short term, tensions with Iran are feeding fears that oil supplies could be blocked.

Justices get by with little security BY JODI KANTOR New York Times

When Supreme Court Justice Stephen G. Breyer was robbed in his Caribbean vacation home 10 days ago, the crime was unremarkable except for one fact: A machete-wielding intruder was able to walk right into the residence of one of the highest members of the U.S. government. In an era when many top U.S. officials are blanketed in security, Breyer and his colleagues are the exceptions, freer but also more exposed than their counterparts in the executive and legislative branches. Nowadays, it often seems that anyone who is anyone in Washington has a driver and a gaggle of taciturn protectors. Congressional leaders sweep into restaurants trailed by members of the Capitol Police; top White House advisers have Secret Service agents. And every president is more heavily encircled than the one before. When President Obama wants to snorkel on his Hawaii vacations,

the Secret Service clears the airspace above him, the shoreline in front of him and the water around him. However, the nine justices often slip around Washington like ordinary citizens, causing barely a pause at stop signs, parties, supermarkets and houses of worship. It is hard to name many officials with more influence than Justice Anthony M. Kennedy, the court’s perennial swing vote, who may determine the fate of Obama’s health care law this spring. But it is easy to name many officials with far more constant protection. Court officials do not discuss security arrangements in detail, but according to longtime observers and congressional budget requests, they vary depending on a justice’s location: traveling out of town for a speech, walking around Washington or working inside the heavily

fortified court building. In the capital, the justices are protected mainly by the court’s own small force, said a spokeswoman, Kathy Arberg. When the justices leave Washington, the U.S. Marshals Service takes over, and local police departments help, too. Protection may be relatively light because justices have worked to preserve their freedom of movement, and the Supreme Court has a lucky history — its members have not met with serious violence. The most recent attack took place nearly three decades ago: An assailant who objected to Supreme Court decisions on pornography and school desegregation punched Justice Byron R. White in the face. “Based on history, it’s tough to make the case that there should be mandatory protection,� said Robert Fein, a forensic psychologist who conducted a Secret Service study of assassins.

Cuba’s cardinal a resilient leader

With space a mess, NASA seeks a cleaner

PAUL HAVEN Associated Press

HAVANA — When a young parish priest named Jaime Ortega stepped out of a Cuban detention camp in the spring of 1967, at the height of the Communist revolution’s attempt to stamp out religion, his father handed him a oneway ticket to Spain and urged his son not to look back. But Ortega refused to go. Forty-five years later and now a cardinal, Ortega heads the island’s Roman Catholic church, which has returned from the wilderness to become the most influential independent institution in the country. In recent years, the 75-year-old clergyman has negotiated with President Raul Castro for the release of political prisoners, given the government advice on economic policy and allowed church magazines to publish increasingly frank articles about the need for change. And after Pope Benedict XVI pays a pre-Easter visit, Ortega will have played a part in getting two consecutive pontiffs to turn their spotlight on one of the most secular countries in Latin America. "My impression of Jaime Ortega is that he’s just the right man at the right time over these years," said Tom Quigley, a former Latin America policy adviser at the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops. "It seems to me the events of the last couple of years have proved his quiet leadership to have been very effective, and the church is in a much better position today than it has been at any time since 1960."

AROUND THE WORLD Greek leaders’ motives in doubt ATHENS — Greek citizens have never believed that the deep spending cuts their country has made to avoid bankruptcy were distributed fairly. But top European officials are starting to worry about that, too. Misgivings remain about whether Greek leaders are committed to instituting the tough policies they have promised in return for the money, not least because of a lingering sense that cuts will continue to hurt the poor far more than the powerful. Despite those concerns, Greece will probably receive its second rescue in two years on Monday, when finance officials gather in Brussels to discuss a $170 billion bailout for the country. Without it, Greece will run out of money by the end of March, with potentially dire consequences for the global economy as a whole.

Latvians reject giving Russian official status RIGA, Latvia — Latvian voters resoundingly rejected a proposal to give official status to Russian, the mother tongue of their former Soviet occupiers, though the defeated referendum Saturday is expected to leave scars on an already divided society. Russian is the first language for about one-third of the Baltic country’s 2.1 million people, and many of them would like to accord official status to the language to reverse what they claim has been 20 years of discrimination. But for ethnic Latvians, the referendum was a brazen attempt to encroach on Latvia’s independence, which was restored two decades ago after a half-century of occupation by the Soviet Union following World War II. Many Latvians still consider Russian – the lingua franca of the Soviet Union – as the language of the former occupiers. They also harbor deep mistrust toward Russia and worry that Moscow attempts to wield influence in Latvia through the ethnic Russian minority.

Cuba’s Cardinal Jaime Ortega has helped coax President Raul Castro’s government to reform. 1998 speech was "a type of United States subculture which invades everything." "He has a very tough job," said Miami Archbishop Thomas G. Wenski, an Ortega supporter who acknowledged that many Cuban exiles view

the cardinal warily. "For those who are Monday-morningquarterbacking from Miami and don’t have on-the-ground experience, it’s going to take more time for them to change their opinion of him." Ortega, a plump, jovial man

often spotted on the cobblestone streets of Old Havana wearing a simple priest’s collar, became archbishop of the capital in 1981, and cardinal in 1994, just as the Communist government was easing up on religion. It had excised the last references to atheism from its laws and regulations, and removed prohibitions on worship by party members. Following Pope John Paul II’s historic 1998 tour, which Ortega helped organize, Fidel Castro declared Christmas a national holiday for the first time since that status was abolished following the 1959 revolution. Still, the island remains the least overtly religious country in Latin America, with less than 10 percent of the population practicing. Despite years of lobbying, the church has virtually no access to state-run radio or television, is not allowed to administer schools and has not been granted permission to build new places of worship. For many years, Ortega rarely spoke out against the government or opined on policy. By all accounts, his interaction with Raul, Fidel’s less doctrinaire brother who took over in 2006, has been good. Ortega has said he meets regularly with the younger Castro, giving him advice on the economic reforms the president is pushing.

Syrian protesters turn out on streets of Damascus BY NEIL MACFARQUHAR New York Times

BEIRUT — Hundreds of antigovernment protesters braved scattered gunfire from Syrian soldiers and a cold winter snowstorm to march through a middle-class neighborhood in Damascus on Saturday, the biggest such demonstration witnessed close to the heart of the capital since the country’s uprising started 11 months ago. The neighborhood, Mezze, skirts the hill on which the sprawling white presidential palace sits, and as the row upon row of demonstrators walked along, wrapped tightly in their heavy coats, more than a few expressed the wish that President Bashar Assad could hear them. “I hope President Assad opens the window of his office and sees how Damascenes are shouting against him and his regime,” said Usama, 22, a university student from the neighborhood, giving only his first name out of fear of retribution. “The regime thought we were asleep, but it doesn’t know that when we wake up his regime will be gone.” The relative calm of Damascus, as well as Aleppo, Syria’s largest city, throughout the uprising has been cited repeatedly by the Assad government to buttress its argument that it enjoys wide support in Syria. Officials maintain that the demonstrations and unrest in rebellious cities like Homs, Hama and Daraa, all sites of brutal crackdowns, are the work of foreign infiltrators. That argument will be much harder to sustain if mainstream, middle-class districts of the capital like Mezze begin rising up to demonstrate, as it did on Saturday. The march was prompted by the deaths of three men at a smaller protest

Syrians chant anti-Bashar Assad slogans during a protest in front of the Syrian embassy in Amman, Jordan, on Friday. a day earlier. Several marchers said it was one thing to deploy tanks in provincial cities, but it would be impossible to say that foreign armed gangs had penetrated an area close to the presidential palace. “If the rallies have reached Damascus and are big enough, we will no longer need an armed revolution,” said the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, an opposition group based in Britain. Some of the demonstrators carried palm fronds, spotted on videos of the event posted

on YouTube, to indicate their peaceful intent. In Mezze, dozens of demonstrators were also arrested, as security forces chased them into alleyways and searched houses, according to witnesses and activists. The Mezze neighborhood houses important government and private offices, including the Ministry of Information and the cellphone company MTN, as well as many foreign missions. The Iranian mission, with its distinctive Persian blue tile exterior, was a focus of demonstrators’ ire.

Grading Our Schools offers a ranking of local elementary, middle and high schools’ performance on Kansas state assessment tests. The report shows scores for tests taken in spring 2011 and provides scores from spring 2009 and 2010 for comparison. It includes public school districts in Sedgwick, Butler and Harvey counties, the Wichita Catholic Diocese schools and several private schools. Some private schools, including Wichita Collegiate and the Independent School, choose not to be accredited by the state and do not administer the tests. When studying the data, keep these points in mind: ■ Test experts say it is best to compare a school against itself over time or against schools with similar demographics because higher poverty and mobility rates translate into greater challenges for educators. ■ We’ve included what percentage of a school’s students are considered low-income. Poverty has long been shown to influence how well a student will perform in school. Still, experts caution that poverty does not make low performance inevitable, just as wealth doesn’t make success certain. ■ Urban school districts such as Wichita have largerthan-average populations of special-education and nonEnglish-speaking students, who take assessments and are counted in a school’s performance toward benchmarks set forth by the federal No Child Left Behind Act. ■ Educators say the test results shouldn’t be the only measure used to assess school quality. Parents should also consider other factors: performance of graduates, observable quality of a student’s work and other tests. Visiting a school and talking to teachers also can help. ■ At schools, grade-by-grade scores are provided for grades that tested 10 or more students. Smaller test groups are not included in state data. Some private schools have too few students for grade-by-grade scores to be available. ■ The scores in this report could differ from those shared with parents by schools. Those scores reflect students who were enrolled by Sept. 20 but don’t include students who moved in after that date or were suspended for 10 days or more. The scores in this report reflect all students enrolled at the time of the tests. ■ If parents have not received their child’s scores, they should contact the school’s principal or the district office. A school’s average scores and other information are also available on the Kansas Department of Education’s website, Click on "Data" in the top navigation bar, then look for "Building Report Card" on the right.

ENTERPRISE From Page 1A speaking students. “We study hard for tests because that’s how to show what you know,” said fourthgrader Axel Becerril. Enterprise’s recent success “feels good,” he added. “Really good.”

‘Climate of trust’ In the 2007-08 school year, just over half the school’s third- through fifth-graders passed state reading assessments. Students for whom English wasn’t their native language fared even worse: only one in four passed the reading test. But that wasn’t all, said Stead, the principal: Many Enterprise students and families just didn’t see the point of state tests or school in general.


Jaime Green/The Wichita Eagle

Enterprise Elementary School fifth-graders learn math in Megan Becker’s class. Last spring Enterprise’s assessment test scores improved for the third year in a row. About 90 percent of children at Enterprise, near I-235 and MacArthur Road in south

Wichita, receive free or reduced-price lunch, an indicator of poverty. Many live

Broadway. They move a lot. They struggle to scrape together meals and buy clothes. Many parents dropped out of high school and figured their kids would likely do the same. “You had teachers blaming parents and parents blaming teachers” for students’ poor performance, Stead said. “We had to build a climate of trust.” She began by insisting that every teacher earn an English as a Second Language endorsement from the state, and she let them use planning and team time to work toward those credits. “They still had to do quite a bit of homework and studying on their own, but we worked as a team,” Stead said. “We were cheering each other on.” Teachers learned strategies to help not only Englishlanguage learners, the principal said, but other students

From Page 8A as well. Next, parent involvement coordinator Misty Seeber launched an effort to help parents get their high school or general equivalency diplomas. Parents work in the school’s library or computer lab, or can print out assignments to take home. About 40 parents signed up for the program the first year, but many didn’t want to come into the school for the first informational meeting. “We’d see these people driving around the parking lot or sitting out there. They were scared. They were embarrassed,” Stead said. “So we just walked out there and knocked on their windows and said, ‘What are you doing? Get in there! We’re all ready for you. … You need to get to work.’ ” This year, 120 parents signed up for the program. LaShunda Wooley learned about it when she enrolled her daughter, Antonia, in kindergarten at Enterprise. The 27-year-old single mother of two had given up on high school long ago – she was a freshman at East when she dropped out – but now she’s learning fractions again and doing homework with her daughter. “She’s proud of me. She’s proud I go to school,” Wooley said. “This program just opened my eyes. It shows my daughter that I think education is important.”

Morning triage The atmosphere at Enterprise helps, too, Wooley said. “That is the best school I’ve ever seen. They are so willing to help – and loving,” she said. “I never felt that in a school before.” Each morning at Enterprise starts with triage at the doors. Teachers, paraprofessionals, bus monitors and others make a point to greet each child and look them in the eyes. “If someone’s crying or mad or there’s something going on, we address that right away,” the principal said. “We’ll pull them aside and say, ‘Is something bothering you? Do you need to talk to somebody?’ “If we can spend five minutes right now fixing whatever it is that’s upsetting them, it helps the whole day go more smoothly.” Sometimes a student had a fight with a sibling, she said. Some went to bed too late and had trouble waking up on time. Some problems are easily fixed, Stead said. Donations from Bethel Life Center allow the school to buy or replenish school supplies for kids whose families can’t afford them. The church also helps finance coats, shoes, haircuts and clothes for needy children and adopted 10 families at Christmastime. Other situations are trickier. When a fifth-grader started defying teachers, hanging with a bad crowd and getting into trouble recently, Stead called him and his parents in to her office. “I had to say, ‘Look, your parents are working hard, night and day, to get you what you need. This school is working hard. Everyone cares about you. So you have a choice to make,’ ” Stead said. Shape up, get it together, or end up in jail – or worse. “You have to give them some sign of hope,” she said. “Some belief that there is something out there to work for, and education is the way to get there.”

Xi Jinping’s U.S. trip plays well back home BY KEITH B. RICHBURG Washington Post

BEIJING — Chinese Vice President Xi Jinping’s weeklong trip to the United States, covered in minute detail in the official media here, offered the first extended chance for the Chinese public to size up the man tapped to be their next leader. And judging from the initial reviews, Xi is proving a surprise hit with ordinary people. Comments posted on the popular microblogging sites known as weibo, as good a barometer of real sentiment as exists in China, suggest that Xi has struck a chord by using the simple everyday language of most Chinese and sprinkling his speeches with common cultural references, including a line from a pop song and an advertising jingle. Xi seemed at ease around his American hosts, whether climbing into a tractor cab in Iowa or sitting tie-less during the fourth quarter of a Los Angeles Lakers game as he laughed alongside Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa. It’s not an image Chinese are used to after the decade-long presidency of the stiff and formal-looking Hu Jintao, who often comes across in photos as a typical Communist Party bureaucrat. And many here noted the difference. “The Chinese style in official talks for the past 10 years is just repeating what the book says, with no taste or character,� wrote one weibo user, using the name Qianfengqingyin. “Xi Jinping’s remarks during his U.S. visit are quite vivid and new.� Another weibo user, Zongjun, said that in his speech in Washington on Sino-U.S. relations, Xi used “standard Mandarin, magnetic male deep voice with measured tones,� adding that Xi “has a professional TV anchorman style.� Xi’s easygoing style drew comparisons to earlier Chinese leaders who showed more personality and self-confidence on the global stage.

NEWS IN BRIEF France benefits as the franc dies PARIS — Greece may be scrambling for revenue, but the French treasury has just banked some 550 million euros for doing nothing — simply letting the French franc, created in 1360, finally perish. Friday was the last day that French francs could be turned into the Bank of France, the central bank, in exchange for the common European currency, the euro, a little more than a decade after it was

introduced as bills and coins. The approximately 550 million euros represents the francs still outstanding, somewhere, which are now worthless, and which will be registered as revenue for the French state. As the franc died, it is the future of the euro that seems at question now, an irony that hardly escaped some of those waiting in line at the bank to exchange the francs they had found stashed away in drawers, coat pockets and old purses. (Only bills were exchangeable; coins went out of circulation in 2005.)

Expect Excellence

For some it was a sad day, to be sure. As Emmanuelle Hamon noted, the franc notes and coins were varied and

beautiful. The euro, on the other hand, seems like the product of an off-day at the design studio.

John Glenn, launch crew mark a milestone BY MARCIA DUNN Associated Press

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. — John Glenn joined the proud, surviving veterans of NASA’s Project Mercury on Saturday in celebrating the 50th anniversary of his historic orbital flight. The first American to orbit the Earth thanked the approximately 125 retired Mercury workers, now in their 70s and 80s, who gathered with their spouses at Kennedy Space Center to swap stories, pose for pictures and take a bow. “There are a lot more bald heads and gray heads in that group than others, but those are the people who did lay the foundation,” the 90-year-old Glenn said at an evening ceremony attended by NASA officials, politicians, astronauts and hundreds of others. “We may be up on the point of that thing and get a lot of the attention, and we had ticker-tape parades and all that sort of thing. But the people who made it work … you’re the ones who deserve the accolade. So give yourselves a great big ovation,” Glenn said, leading the crowd in applause. Glenn and fellow astronaut Scott Carpenter, now 86, spent nearly an hour before the ceremony being photographed with the retirees,

John Glenn, left, and Scott Carpenter speak at the Kennedy Space Center on Friday. Monday will be the 50th anniversary of Glenn's launch into orbit. posing for individual pictures in front of a black curtain with a model of a MercuryAtlas rocket. Glenn and Carpenter are the lone survivors of NASA’s original Mercury 7 astronauts. Earlier in the day, the Mercury brigade traveled by bus to Launch Complex 14. That’s the pad from which Glenn rocketed away on Feb. 20,

1962. Some retirees were in wheelchairs, while others used walkers or canes. Most walked, some more surely than others. But they all beamed with pride as they took pictures of the abandoned pad and of each other, and went into the blockhouse to see the old Mercury photos on display and to reminisce.

As retired engineer Norm Beckel Jr. rode to the pad Saturday, he recalled being seated in the blockhouse right beside Scott Carpenter as the astronaut called out to Glenn right before liftoff, “Godspeed John Glenn.” But there’s more to the story. “Before he said that, he said, `Remember, John, this

was built by the low bidder,“’ Beckel, 81, told The Associated Press. The Mercury-Atlas rocket shook the domed bunker-like structure, although no one inside could hear the roar because of the thick walls. “Nothing was said by anybody until they said, `He’s in orbit,’ and then the place erupted,” Beckel recalled. Beckel and Jerry Roberts, 78, a retired engineer who also was in the blockhouse that historic day, said almost all the workers back then were in their 20s and fresh out of college. The managers were in their 30s. “I don’t know if I’d trust a 20-year-old today,” Beckel said. “They don’t know it, but we would have worked for nothing,” said Roberts, who spends the winter in Florida. Bob Schepp, 77, who like Beckel traveled from St. Louis, Mo., for the reunion, was reminded by the old launch equipment of how rudimentary everything was back then. “I wonder how we ever managed to launch anything in space with that kind of stuff,” Schepp said. “Everything is so digital now. But we were pioneers, and we made it all work.” The Mercury team included women, about 20 of whom gathered for the anniversary festivities. One pulled aside

an Associated Press reporter to make sure she knew women were part of the team. “Most of the women here are wives,” said Lucy Simon Rakov, 74. But not her. “We weren’t secretaries. We were mathematicians,” said Rakov, a pioneering computer programmer who traveled from Boston for the reunion. Patricia Palombo, 74, also a computer programmer, said working on Project Mercury proved to be the most significant thing she’s done in her career. Glenn’s flight was the turning point that put America on a winning path that ultimately led to the moon. “It’s been downhill from here,” Palombo said with a laugh. She lives near Washington, D.C.

Key questions, answers about the hotel vote BY BILL WILSON The Wichita Eagle

Here are answers to some of the key questions about the Feb. 28 guest tax vote on the Ambassador Hotel Wichita, a 117-room boutique hotel proposed for the old Union National Bank building, Douglas and Broadway, which was the site of the Dockum Drugs store sit-in in 1958. The rooms are projected to cost an average of $150 a night. Q. What am I voting on? A. This is what you will see on the ballot: Shall Charter Ordinance 216 entitled: “A charter ordinance amending and repealing Section 1 of Charter Ordinance No. 213, of the city of Wichita, Kansas, which amended and repealed Section 1 of Charter Ordinance No. 183 of the city of Wichita which amended and repealed Section 1 of Charter Ordinance No. 174 of the city of Wichita, Kansas, pertaining to the application of revenues from the transient guest tax” take effect? Yes No Q. What does that mean? A. What the ballot question is asking is whether you want the city to rebate to the developers 75 percent of the

bed tax paid by the hotel’s guests for 15 years. The total amount is estimated at $2.25 million. A “yes” vote means you do; a “no” vote means you don’t. Q. Does downtown need more hotel rooms? A. Downtown consultant Goody Clancy says Wichita needs 250 to 400 additional downtown hotel rooms to be a serious player for major events, such as NCAA men’s basketball tournament rounds, major conventions and concerts. In the first year of Project Downtown, Wichita gained 248 hotel rooms, including the 117 that are under construction at the Ambassador. Project opponents contend that the Ambassador will take up to 50 percent of its business from nearby competing upscale hotels. Q. What are guest tax revenues? A. The guest tax is an extra tax levied against guests at Wichita hotels. It is used to promote convention and tourism pursuits, and for maintenance and upgrades at Century II. The Ambassador is expected to generate an estimated $3 million in guest taxes over its first 15 years; it seeks to keep 75 percent, or $2.25 million, of that. Q. What laws permit the challenge of the guest tax

allocation to the Ambassador project? A. The Wichita City Council, when it approved the guest tax allocation for the Ambassador, passed a charter ordinance to do so. Such charter ordinances are subject to a public protest petition. Americans for Prosperity and its supporters successfully gained 2,500 signatures from registered Wichita voters to force the vote. Q. Has the city ever allocated guest tax revenues to other hotel projects? A. Yes, three, according to Allen Bell, the city’s director of urban development: the Hyatt Regency, the Hotel at Old Town and the Fairfield Inn and Suites Hotel in WaterWalk. In each case, the city made a direct financial contribution to pay a portion of the cost of the hotel’s construction, which was then financed with city bonds, Bell said. The bed tax revenue generated by the hotel was used to help pay off the bonds. In each case, the city council adopted a charter ordinance as it did with the Ambassador, amending the prior charter ordinance governing the use of bed tax revenue. All of those ordinances were subject to the same protest petition over 60 days, but no protest was filed.

Q. Who is behind Douglas Place LLC, the group renovating the Ambassador? A. The development team is headed by Paul Coury, a boutique hotel developer and owner of Tulsa-based Coury Properties. Coury’s credits include boutique hotels in Tulsa, Fort Worth, Oklahoma City and Kansas City. His partners include Dave Burk, the veteran Old Town developer, and Wichita construction executive David Wells. Q. How is the project being financed? A. The project is estimated at $29.2 million; $22.57 million is for the hotel. The rest is coming from the city of Wichita for a parking garage, retail space and an urban park. Developers say they’ve taken out a $12 million bank loan, have $5.9 million in private equity, a $2.2 million interim loan and will be using $1.5 million from the city’s facade program and $7.71 million in public investment. Q. What are the direct public costs involved in the project? A. According to the developers’ financial plan, the city has committed $6 million for a parking garage, $800,000 for an urban parkway, $770,000 for land acquisition and $140,000 in financing

and other costs, for a total of $7.71 million. The city also would make a $1.5 million loan from its facade program to the project. And if the referendum passes, the hotel would get an estimated $2.25 million from the guest tax over 15 years. Opponents contend the project contains $15.4 million in public subsidies, including $7.3 million in state and federal historic tax credits. Q. How much equity do the developers have in the project? A. Developers claim they have up to $8.8 million in equity in the project, including $1 million in cash, $6.715 million in up-front proceeds from the sale of state and federal historic tax credits and another $780,000 in tax credit sale proceeds at the end of the hotel’s construction. Coury told The Eagle last fall he plans to contribute an additional $1 million in in-kind services as the room and furnishings designer for the project. Critics of the project dismiss the tax credits as another public incentive, boiling the developer equity down to $2 million — the $1 million in cash and the $1 million in Coury’s in-kind services. Several bankers and economists, though, told The Eagle last

HOTEL From Page 1A Ambassador is forecast to generate. A yes vote means Coury’s group can keep the money; a no vote means the revenue goes into the city’s convention and tourism recruitment effort, funding Go Wichita, the city’s tourism arm. Advance voting already has begun. Coury is clear: Had he known Americans for Prosperity would mount a petition drive against the guest tax revenue, he would not have brought his boutique hotel project to Wichita. “It’s incredible,” he said. “I mean, I’m going to be out $350,000 before we start, to run this Vote Yes campaign and to pay for the election. That’s the incredible part. “Don’t you think the people circulating the petitions should have some skin in this game? Shouldn’t we at least be splitting the cost of this election?” The special election is estimated to cost $50,000. Coury said the political fight also led him to drop his plans for a similar hotel renovation at the Commodore Apartments near Broadway and Central, a 62-unit project that originally lured the Tulsa boutique developer to Wichita. His position is a message that downtown proponents want to make sure voters understand, especially with the looming prospect of a deal at Union Station, the cavernous train station that analysts say will be financially impos-

Opponents of the guest tax issue relating to the Ambassador Hotel have posted “Vote No” signs around Wichita. sible to revitalize without a longterm public-private partnership that could make the Ambassador deal look small by comparison. A no vote “is tantamount to saying you don’t want growth in Wichita,” said Tom Docking, the Wichita attorney who chairs the Wichita Downtown Development Corp. “You don’t want the Intrust Bank Arena. You don’t want the Kellogg flyover. You don’t want the children’s museum. You don’t want Old Town. “Think what Wichita would be like if we didn’t have those amenities.” If the referendum fails, downtown revitalization will be set back significantly, Docking and Wichita Mayor Carl Brewer say. “The bigger picture, I fear, is that if the referendum fails, it sends a

message to the business community that they’re going to have a battle on their hands whenever the economics dictate a public-private partnership. And the opponents are well-organized,” Docking said. Said Brewer, “The message will be that this community isn’t sincere in what it’s doing downtown … that we sincerely want new business and growth.” In the shorter term, the referendum’s failure will mean scaleddown amenities and a smaller payroll at the Ambassador, Coury said. “If I find myself in a position where I need to trim more than $2 million in expenses, then there are going to be some things we need to do for the full hotel experience that simply won’t get done,” he said.

A “Vote Yes” sign is posted on the fence outside what will be the new Ambassador Hotel at Douglas and Broadway.

Opposing the subsidy The leaders of the petition drive frequently advocate for free market and limited government before the Wichita City Council. Their opposition to the guest tax allocation – they say they’re not opposed to the hotel project in total – is based on two factors: Governments shouldn’t pick winners by providing public incentives to private developments. And the guest tax money shouldn’t be missed by project developers who have cashed in on $15.4 million of public sub-

fall that tax credits are considered equity by many bankers because of their ease of conversion to cash. Q. What are historic tax credits? A. According to the Kansas Historical Society, the federal program provides an incometax credit equal to 20 percent of qualified rehabilitation expenses on income-producing properties. The state program provides a tax credit equal to 25 percent of qualified expenses on incomeproducing or non incomeproducing properties. These credits are sold to investors to generate capital for the rehabilitation projects, which analysts say can cost two to three times more than a new building. Q. What is the nature of the opposition from Americans for Prosperity and other groups to the project? A. Basically, the groups oppose public subsidies for private developments, saying that such subsidies put government in the position of picking winners and losers. Some AFP supporters say they’re challenging the guest tax because the law allows them to, and that $15.4 million in eight other public subsidy programs for the Ambassador is enough.

sidies – a figure Coury dismisses as a “myth.” The city and the developer’s financial statements put public incentives at $7.7 million. “We saw that the multi-layered subsidy package to the Ambassador hotel contained one item that we thought was over the top,” said Bob Weeks, one of the AFP supporters who organized the petition drive. “And something passed by a charter ordinance, as this was, is subject to a protest petition. … We thought about it and, you know, eight things are going to be in effect here and this one thing seems just over the top.” “We’re not against the hotel,” Weeks said. “We’re against the ninth government subsidy to the hotel.” One of the AFP group’s core beliefs is that tax revenues should always be used for public services, not to subsidize private development. “Taxation is a public function for a public benefit,” Weeks said. “In this case, we’re turning that function over for private benefit and private gain.” Susan Estes, who is AFP’s field representative in Wichita, and John Todd, another AFP activist, put the stakes of the election a little more broadly: Governments shouldn’t provide public subsidies for private developments because it puts them in the position of playing business favorites. “Equality of opportunity is what we’re looking for,” Todd said.

Maps need to be fair


f state lawmakers are trying to redraw congressional and state Senate districts to safeguard incumbency and ignore common sense, they’re doing a fine job. They’re also illustrating why Kansas should join the states that use a nonpartisan, independent process to make new maps every 10 years. Lawmakers It should be said that the Kansas need to cool House made its their own redistricting partisanship process look easy long enough earlier this to make some month, approving a map on a redistricting 109-14 vote with maps that put astonishingly communities little debate. But some of the and voters proposals for the first. Senate and the four congressional districts have been nutty. They show little regard for the need to keep communities of interest together, but a shameless willingness to use redistricting to protect vulnerable and safe incumbents alike. A map put forth last week by Senate Reapportionment Committee Chairman Tim Owens, R-Overland Park, unabashedly tries to guarantee reelection for himself and fellow moderate Republican Sen. Carolyn McGinn, R-Sedgwick, by drawing their conservative primary challengers out of their districts. The tortured map goes so far as to lump Sen. Ty Masterson of Andover, Sen. Steve Abrams of Arkansas City and McGinn’s would-be opponent, businessman Gary Mason, in a single district. No wonder Mason suggested he was being “Gary-mandered.” Congressional maps on the table variously would find the 1st District’s needed 58,000 more residents in Wyandotte County (House Speaker Mike O’Neal, R-Hutchinson), part of

Topeka (Sen. Mike Petersen, R-Wichita) or all of Lawrence (Rep. Anthony Brown, R-Eudora) – urban centers that are about as unlike the conservative, rural “Big First” as it gets. The last map also splits Harvey County between the 1st and 4th districts and moves Kingman County to the “Big First.” Earlier, the Senate passed a congressional map that would move Manhattan and Kansas State University from the 2nd District. While that’s not a perfect solution, especially because Manhattan officials oppose it, at least the 1st District mirrors the mission and character of the land-grant university. And Owens had the right idea in wanting to divide no major cities and as few counties as possible. Though the map would leave the 2nd District only slightly less Republican, the chairman of the Kansas Chamber of Commerce’s political action committee claimed it “hurts Republicans and helps President Obama’s agenda” and proved the need for a new Senate. “It was a coalition map in a Republican state,” complained Sen. Susan Wagle, R-Wichita. “You’d think we could pass a Republican map.” No, you’d think that at least once a decade, state lawmakers could cool their scorched-earth partisanship long enough to make some maps that put communities and voters first. Meanwhile, the clock is ticking. Once the Legislature’s district maps gain Gov. Sam Brownback’s signature, they must face a 30-day review by the Kansas Supreme Court. Congressional maps routinely have been challenged in federal court; in 2002, the court fight nearly postponed the August primary. It’s not too late for lawmakers to set aside their self-interest and exemplify fairness in redistricting. But it will be soon. — For the editorial board, Rhonda Holman


Second-guessing the golf course plan If the city of Wichita still can find a way to deal with the debt load for the Auburn Hills Golf Course and stabilize the golf courses’ finances without raising green fees, that will be great. But the park board and city staff have spent months on the issue, holding 16 public meetings and heeding the strong call of citizens not to close any courses. So it was disconcerting to see the Wichita City Council defer the park board’s recommended fee increases last week – seemingly in response to former City Council member Greg Ferris’ last-minute plea not to raise the fees now. It should be noted that Ferris, while on the council, was a key figure in putting the deal together to build Auburn Hills. The course has been a point of pride but also criticism, because of its debt.

Drug tests for welfare recipients costly, catch few Requiring welfare recipients to undergo drug testing seems like common sense to most Kansans, judging from a new SurveyUSA poll, sponsored by KWCH, Channel 12. Of the 500 adults polled, 77 percent said they would support such testing. A bill in the Legislature would require a third of those on welfare to undergo random drug screens; the recipients would have to pay for their own screening up front, but the state would cover the cost if the test was negative. Proponents cite Florida’s example. But from July 1 until a federal judge issued a temporary injunction and stopped testing last fall, just 32 of 7,000 screened applicants tested positive. That meant the state had to reimburse the $25 to $45 cost for all who tested negative. As Miami Herald columnist Carl Hiaasen observed before the judge’s ruling, “Here in Florida, (Gov.) Rick Scott’s campaign promise of mass job creation is at least coming true for professional urine samplers.”

Lawmaker hassled, detained in Arizona State Rep. Ponka-We Victors, D-Wichita, shared with lawmakers her personal experiences with Arizona’s antiimmigration laws, the Topeka Capital-Journal reported. Victors, who is of American Indian and Latino heritage, said she has been hassled and detained by border control agents while visiting her family in Arizona. “Every time I left Arizona, it was like a sigh of relief when I came back to Kansas. But now, with these laws, I don’t know about that anyVictors more,” Victors said, referring to several anti-immigration bills before the Legislature. Victors, who wants stronger enforcement on both the Mexican and Canadian borders, also joked that Native Americans have a different perspective on this debate. “Personally, my people have been fighting immigration since 1492,” she said. “It doesn’t get any better.”

Hotel incentive is genius approach I view the decision of the city to provide a portion of the transient guest tax to the developers of the Ambassador Hotel as a form of capital. This capital is not a loss of profit to the city, the residents of Wichita or tourists. Viewed another way, the ability of our city to entice developers to begin new business ventures that do not increase taxes or cost the taxpayers a dime, and that are paid for by the success of the business being developed, is genius. Viewed from an economic standpoint, the Ambassador Hotel project might not occur without the positive effect of additional capital. Accordingly, dozens of jobs, increased tax revenue, new tourist and meeting accommodations, new parking infrastructure, retail, food concession and downtown redevelopment will not happen. Viewed from a marketing standpoint, assistance provided by the city produces a mutually beneficial atmosphere that is welcomed by business people regardless of the type of operation being proposed. I applaud city leaders for not simply accepting historical development methods. One size fits all it good only if the shoe fits. When it does not, it is time to provide new insight and mechanisms for capital infusion. WM. D. HESS Wichita

Already generous The developers of the Ambassador Hotel want to keep the focus on only on thing: the bed-tax refund scheme that we will vote on in the Feb. 28 election. But I think it’s important to know that this is only one of many government spending programs the out-of-state hotel developer is participating in. I watched the Wichita City Council meeting last September when these programs were presented, and I read the agenda information packet. Believe it or not, there were nine subsidy programs in total. Eight of these already are set in stone. Together, they are worth more than $15 million. The bed-tax rebate is only one of these programs, and the only one citizens get to vote on. I think that taxpayers already are being generous in setting up this developer in business. It’s also been reported in The Eagle that he will open the hotel in any case. The over-the-top greed of these people is why I am voting “no.” MARTY WEEKS Wichita

Proud of Koch Throughout these difficult times, there is a company that continues to be one of our greatest sources of community pride – Koch Industries. Koch calls Wichita its international headquarters, employing more than 2,600 people locally. Those Koch employees send their children to our schools and universities. They play major leadership roles in nonprofit organizations, including churches, charitable causes and other worthwhile organizations that improve the quality of life in our community. They also contribute to our local economy by shopping and investing their hard-earned dollars, benefiting thousands more in our community. Wichita is a city that celebrates diversity and respects diversity of

We are all proud of Koch Industries, and especially proud that it continues to call Wichita home and “occupy” our great city.

Keep KPERS Our communities have always depended on public employees dedicated to providing high-quality services to all Kansans. In order to maintain the quality of services and to recruit and retain public employees, the state has promised, but not always adequately funded, a defined-benefit retirement system. A proposal in both houses of the Legislature would maintain this system for employees who are vested, but it would make a defined-contribution plan for those with fewer than five years of experience by January 2014. This proposal does nothing to address the main problem with the Kansas Public Employees Retirement System, an $8.3 billion unfunded liability to participants through 2033. A bill passed last year, HB 2194, actually deals with this unfunded liability, but it will not go into effect without further action from the Legislature. According to the state’s actuary, the bills currently being considered would cost taxpayers $10.9 billion more than HB 2194. To ask all taxpayers to fund any plan that costs more than legislation already signed into law is irresponsible. To ask public employees to spend more of their already lagging salaries for a less certain benefit is not the retirement system our public employees deserve. BRETT RANDOLPH President Andover Education Association Andover

No evidence Lt. Gov. Jeff Colyer implied that lower life expectancy for individuals with developmental disabilities is somehow a result of poor access to and coordination of health care services (“Focus on the best results,” Feb. 12 Opinion). In fact, life expectancy for those with developmental disabilities is related to the effects of their disabilities. Life expectancy has dramatically increased over time. For example, the average life expectancy for those with Down syndrome has doubled since 1983. Colyer also stated that the greatest growth in Medicaid costs was for people with disabilities.

But the University of Minnesota reported a decline in per-person spending for home- and community-based services in Kansas of 18 percent between 1993 and 2009. Regardless of the medical needs cited, to my knowledge no one has questioned the administration’s desire to place medical services paid by Medicaid under managed care. What has families and advocates so upset is the inclusion of nonmedical residential and day supports provided through the home- and community-based services waiver. I keep searching for evidence from around the country that managed care will be of positive benefit for the needs of people with developmental disabilities. I have yet to find any.

Punishing DD As a U.S. senator, Sam Brownback voted for all of the misnamed free-trade treaties that have irreversibly crippled our economy by sending America’s manufacturing to Mexico and communist China, along with the tax monies. Now governor, Brownback is trying to fix the state economy he helped bankrupt on the backs of the most vulnerable of society – the developmentally disabled. These poor people already suffer and will suffer more under Brownback’s executive order to reform the Kansas Department of Social and Rehabilitation Services and use private “managed care” to serve their needs. I have a 32-year-old, 250-pound “4-year-old” son. He didn’t ask to be born mentally disabled, autistic, bipolar and with multiple food and pollen allergies. Virtually all of the state hospitals have been closed. His mother and I are both exhausted. After one of us dies, the other won’t be that far behind. It’s exhausting, frustrating and depressing beyond description. Why make the developmentally disabled suffer for the decisions of those politicians with “normal” brains? JAMES McNULTY Wichita

Test lawmakers Should the Legislature be successful in starting drug-testing for a third of state welfare recipients, I think it would only be fair for us to be assured that our legislators are sober and not under the influence of any drugs that may alter their ability to conduct the business of the people. They should be given Breathalyzer tests as they enter their respective chambers. If they test higher than 0.08 percent blood alcohol content, they should be barred from entering. Upon their third time failing the test, they should be barred for life. Random weekly blood testing for legal and illegal drugs should be done on all elected state officials. Upon failure of their third test, they should be barred for life from serving. TIM ANDERSON Mulvane

Inadequate, unequal BY JOHN RICHARD SCHROCK

It was my first year of teaching in rural Kentucky in 1969. Rookie teachers got bus duty. Every day when the last bell rang, I went out patrolling so big kids did not cut in line and crowd out the little kids along the bus-loading lot. Campbell County had nearly all rural kids, but Kentucky only funded a set percentage for busing. Thus my school was desperately short on buses. Sixty-passenger buses loaded up with more than 90 kids. When seats filled up, children stood in the aisle. Schrock And those kids who got off first waited to load last in the door well – way in front of the yellow line that was labeled “do not stand beyond this line.” County police, in plain sight of this disaster, directed those desperately overloaded buses onto the highway. This was so illegal. But what could a school administrator or the police do? The crime was at the state level: failure to fund educational costs enough to keep their children’s school buses legal. Today, Campbell County is a bedroom community to Cincinnati, and I have no doubt that my old school is compliant. But the proposed education reform package in Topeka appears to be loaded with similar treat-all-schools-the-same policies that will press many Kansas schools into diverting funds to cover their higher transportation costs. Other schools such as Dodge City, with more than 75 percent of students speaking English as a second language, and Wichita, Topeka and Kansas City, with more “at risk” students, also will have to divert regular base aid to serve their students, leaving their average student population poorer. There are two factors at play: adequacy of funding and equity of funding. Kansas schools were moving toward adequate funding before the 2008 downturn pushed basefunding amounts back to the 1990 levels. But our current formula passed the Kansas Supreme Court test for equity and limited the discrepancy between the rich and poor districts. The proposed education reform package appears to be a rich-get-richer and poor-get-

The proposed education reform plan appears to be a rich-get-richer and poor-get-poorer package. poorer package, locking in less-than-adequate funding for the schools serving high-need students, but making the sky the limit for the rich districts. For those who remember the movie “It’s a Wonderful Life,” you will recognize the dilemma. Those serving high-need students under the current formula are like Jimmy Stewart’s character standing up on his savings-and-loan counter, pointing out that the money is invested in each person’s home – or, in our case, children. But we are apparently in an era where Mr. Potter, the banker, is in ascendancy. Recall the desolation of that Christmas future. The Dickensian philosophy of Mr. Potter in “It’s a Wonderful Life” – that every dollar spent by schools is a dollar not invested in business – is precisely the party line being heard from the anti-education lobby. And apparently Gov. Sam Brownback is listening to the Mr. Potters and Ebenezer Scrooges. If the Legislature does not reject this proposal, the courts likely will. The adequacy of funding is still on schedule for court. And if the local-option budget lid gets lifted, there is great likelihood that the equity of funding also will be challenged. The current school funding formula is not broken. But perhaps as a trainer of Kansas teachers, I had better begin training my student teachers in how to overload school buses.

Is Obama’s 2013 budget plan responsible? President Obama’s 2013 budget was greeted on Monday with Republican catcalls that it is simply a campaign document, but election-year budgets are supposed to explain priorities to voters. This one offers a clear and welcome contrast to the slashing austerity – and protect-thewealthy priorities – favored by Republican congressional leaders and the party’s presidential candidates. The president’s budget calls for long-term deficit reduction, but its immediate priority is to encourage the fledgling economic recovery. Instead of trying to stabilize the budget on the backs of the poor, it would raise taxes on


as savings. That anecdote illustrates the fallacy of President Obama’s $3.8 trillion budget for 2013, which spends dollars the nation doesn’t have and the wealthy and on big banks glosses over the long-term and eliminate many corpoimpact of rising debt on the rate tax loopholes. country’s economic health.

Police-car break-ins cause concern BY TIM POTTER The Wichita Eagle

Rod Page, special agent in charge with the Kansas Bureau of Investigation, remembers the sinking feeling one morning last June when he stepped outside his Wichita home and realized someone had broken into his undercover vehicle. The thieves seemed prepared. They used bolt cutters to steal a semiautomatic rifle that had been locked in. They took binoculars used for aerial spotting. Page learned from investigators that four other law enforcement agencies in surrounding counties had vehicles that had been hit around the same time.

Wichita-area law enforcement agencies have been hit by a string of break-ins and thefts from their vehicles. Authorities arrested some of the thieves, and Page knows of one who ended up in pris-

on. They were “meth heads” targeting police vehicles for the valuable equipment in-

side, Page said. A rash of thefts from cop cars in the Wichita region over the past year has raised concern in the law enforcement community. “This has not happened in past years,” said Wichita police Deputy Chief Tom Stolz. “People would not break into cop cars,” equipped with things like body armor and special radios. “We don’t want any of this type of equipment to get out to the wrong hands,” Stolz said. The Goddard police chief is one victim. A Kansas Highway Patrol lieutenant colonel is another. Because of the thefts, the Butler County sheriff has decided to have any new

sheriff’s cars equipped with alarm systems. Wichita police have recorded about six law enforcement vehicle break-ins in the past year, said police Lt. Joe Cutcliff. The cars belonged to the Kansas Highway Patrol, Goddard police, KBI and Wichita police. Wichita police also heard of a series of burglaries last summer in Reno County, Cutcliff said. Someone broke into about three unmarked Sedgwick County sheriff’s cars in the past year, said sheriff’s Lt. Jay McLaurian. Authorities caught a suspect who broke into a deputy’s car, McLaurian said. He said he didn’t know if

the crimes were targeted or random, but he couldn’t recall three such burglaries ever occurring in a relatively short period before. He asked that anyone with information about the crimes call sheriff’s investigators at 316-660-5300 or Crime Stoppers, 316-267-2111. To Page, the KBI agent, the thefts mean “there’s a market for stolen police property.” Which is disturbing, law enforcement officials say, not only because of the loss of taxpayer-funded equipment – Page’s unmarked car sustained about $3,000 in damage and about $4,000 in property losses. The last thing police want is for their Please see BREAK-INS, Page 3B

Prospective medical student speaks from the heart ■

Program prepares undergrads for KU School of Medicine.

BY TIM POTTER The Wichita Eagle

It was an exercise on how to interview for admission to medical school. Not even Darcie Spresser, a 24-year-old undergraduate at Wichita State University who

volunteered to be interviewed in front of others, knew how real and how emotional it would be. It was just an exercise, but Spresser nailed it. It happened Saturday during a day-long program in Wichita that brought about 340 undergraduate students and advisers from Kansas and surrounding states. The program, co-hosted by KU School of Medicine-Wichita and Wichita State University, was

designed to help them know what to expect about medical school and help them prepare for the challenges. James Kallail, professor and associate chairman for research in the Department of Internal Medicine at KU School of Medicine-Wichita, conducted the interview exercise in an amphitheater at the Wichita medical campus as about 35 students watched. Kallail, a member of the ad-

mission committee for the medical school system, told Spresser he wanted her to be as open and honest as possible. “Tell me why you want to be a physician,” he asked in a calm, clear voice. “My heart lies there,” she said, explaining that she had tried another career but realized that caring for others as a doctor is what she decided she had to do. She now works

as a phlebotomist, drawing patients’ blood at Via Christi Hospital on St. Francis, so she sees all kinds of patients. A defining moment came one day when she walked into a cancer patient’s room to take a blood sample from her. Sunshine from a window was hitting the ill woman in the face. “Oh, honey, let me close that blind down for you; the sun is in your eyes,” Spresser

told the woman. “That’s OK,” the patient said. “I’m just glad God gave me another day to see the sun rise.” Spresser’s voice caught, and she teared up as she recounted it to Kallail. She apologized for getting emotional. He said it was OK, to continue. The other students listened intently. Please see MED SCHOOL, Page 4B

Kansas minister who fought liquor, gambling dies BY HURST LAVIANA The Wichita Eagle

The Rev. Richard Taylor, who for more than two decades served as the face of the state’s abstinence and antigambling forces, died Friday in Andover at age 87. He led the socially conservative Kansans for Life at its Best for 21 years before retiring in 1992. The Rev. Taylor grew up in Enterprise and served in the U.S. Navy before getting a degree in mechanical engineering from Northwestern University in Chicago. He later attended divinity school at Drew University in New

He worries it could be used in a crime, and he wonders whether it might have been moved on the black market out of the country. The binoculars, bought with federal money aimed at eradicating meth, surfaced at a pawn shop. In past years, Page said, “People did not target cops like this.” But as his case shows, he said, “they’re not afraid” now.

The public’s equipment What’s not clear is how many of the thefts are related and the degree to which the vehicles are targeted or how many are “opportunity” crimes where thieves stumble upon a vehicle with valuable equipment. At Baysingers Uniforms and Equipment, a Wichita business that caters to law enforcement customers, owner Brian Carduff said he would assume that someone stealing from a police car is selling the equipment on the black market or keeping it for themselves. Baysingers restricts its sales of body armor so it doesn’t fall into the wrong hands, Carduff said. In many police jobs, especially those in rural areas or where officers are always on call and have to respond to emergencies, officers take their work vehicles home. Because of the need to respond quickly to emergencies, much of the equipment needs

Between midnight and 6 one morning in November, someone broke into the marked car that Goddard Police Chief Sam Houston had outside his home. The thief or thieves broke a window on the car and took about $3,000 worth of equipment: protective vest, ammunition, handcuffs, leg irons, laptop computer, flashlight and Houston’s winter uniform coat and cap with insignia and department patches. His weapons remained, locked into the car. “Those are the things we have in our cars to save the

Taylor was diagnosed with cancer on one of his vocal cords, though Haas said he never smoked or drank. Surgery left his voice very hoarse. The Rev. Taylor also was a staunch advocate for historic preservation in Shawnee County and wrote a book, “I Love Kansas,” which chronicled historically important places and people in Kansas. After his retirement, Haas said, her father lived on a farm outside Topeka until

about three years ago, when he moved into an assistedliving center in Andover.

He has undergone more than 100 surgeries, first at Walter Reed Medical Center in Washington, D.C., then at Johns Hopkins Hospital in

Baltimore before he was transferred to a rehabilitation facility in Denver. Melissa Jarboe has spent as much time as possible with him while their two daughters remained in Topeka to attend school.

Jarboe still faces several more surgeries, but Melissa Jarboe said she’s happy to have him back in Topeka, where she and their daughters will be able to see him daily. The homecoming took place three days after Valentine’s

Day, which was the couple’s first wedding anniversary. The family has “put God first” to help them endure the past 10 months, she said. “It’s better that way, instead of asking, ‘Why me?’ ” she said.

Mike Glazer of Wichita looked like he was covered in black oil, but he said it was actually chocolate syrup. “If we could get the largest signs to come to the front,” Shatz announced as the group began its march. “That derrick should be up front for photographic purposes. Let’s put the pipeline in the middle.” After walking south on Broadway, the group went west on Second and stopped at the Kansas Policy Institute, a conservative think tank. The crowd chanted in front of the empty building as a police car monitored the activity from a block away. “What do we want?” asked a man standing atop a stone sign next to the building. “Justice,” the crowd shouted back. “When do we want it?”

“Now.” Among the marchers was Doris Ravenfeather, a retired nurse from Wichita, who said her concerns about the environment prompted her to join the protest. “My major thing is protecting nature,” she said as she walked toward Century II. “We’ve got to save our land. I’m tired of seeing it abused.” Brothers, the St. Joseph resident, who is studying political science at Missouri Western State University, said the reaction from most passersby was positive, but he said there were occasional sneers and shouts of “Get a job.” “It’s been mostly honks of solidarity and thumbs up,” he said.

MED SCHOOL From Page 1B Spresser, a native of Selden in northwest Kansas, also talked about donating a kidney to a relative two years ago. Kallail said it was quite a sacrifice. She said that because of her Christian faith, it is important for her to help people, that it is who she is. As Kallail and the students critiqued the interview afterward, Spresser conceded she was nervous and emotional, that it “just came out.” It’s natural to be a little nervous during an interview, Kallail said. “It’s an anxiety-provoking situation.” But Kallail told her she came across as genuine, that the emotion came as part of her credible, compelling story. The students discussed whether her mention of religion could be controversial in the context of a medical school interview. But Kallail said he didn’t take it that way, that it’s OK to bring up faith if it is relevant during an interview. The test, he said, is if reli-

the message was: Get a degree in what really interests you, not what you think will look good on paper. Still, some specific course areas, like biochemistry and anatomy, are especially important. Many of the med students exposed themselves to the profession by shadowing doctors – learning what is really involved, by seeing surgeries and other procedures firsthand. Someone asked if it’s doable to start families while attending medical school. The answer: Some med students do have small children, but it forces them to closely budget their time. Med school, they said, is a full-time job.

Whatever you say, you have to be yourself and be genuine, the med students said. As for what classes to take,

Schools offer dinner to students in need BY HEATHER HOLLINGSWORTH Associated Press

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Too often it is after the fact that teachers discover their students are worrying less about math and reading and more about where the next meal comes from. So Doug White, principal of Garfield Elementary School in inner-city Kansas City, was relieved when his school, like many across the country, began offering dinner to students enrolled in afterschool child-care or tutoring programs. With breakfast and lunch already provided for poor students, many children now are getting all their meals at school. "When you know about those situations those kids are bringing into the school and we are asking them to sit down and concentrate and do their work, and they might be hungry and we haven’t been made aware of it yet – we definitely want to do everything we can to help the kids," White said. The Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act, signed into law by President Obama in December 2010, provides federal funds for the after-school dinner program in areas where at least half the students qualify for free or reduced-price lunches. Before the change, the program was limited to 13 states and the District of Columbia. Most states had provided money for only after-school snacks. Since the change, districts have started rolling out dinner programs both in states newly able to offer them and states like Missouri where funding was available previously but districts didn’t always know about it. The Congressional Budget Office estimates there will be almost 21 million additional suppers served by 2015 and that number will rise to 29 million by 2020. The added spending would total about $641 million from 2011 to 2020.

Kindergartner Dulce Tello, 6, left, and other students at Garfield Elementary School eat dinner after classes as part of a new program in Kansas City, Mo. dinners served through the program has grown over the past decade, although the USDA doesn’t currently break out how many meals are served through after-school programs specifically. "The USDA has done a lot to streamline the requirements and made it easier for people to apply and participate," said Crystal FitzSimons, who researches and advocates for after-school meals for the anti-hunger nonprofit Food Research and Action Center. "Before, we did outreach in the states that allowed it. There were

Advocates for the poor praise the program, but there have been complaints from conservatives who question whether the schools should be feeding kids three meals a day. Radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh asked on-air in November, "Why even send the kids home?" Dinners are funded through the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Child and Adult Care Food Program, which also helps feed people enrolled in child and adult day care programs and emergency shelters.

The district now serves dinner to about 1,700 students in 18 schools each weeknight, about 10 percent of the district’s enrollment, said Ellen Cram, the district’s director of child nutrition services. "If that meal gets the parent and child in the door for the opportunity to study I’m happy to offer that carrot, so to say," Cram said over the din of elementary students eating a dinner of turkey and cheese sandwiches, baby carrots and raisins. "Offering this supper meal is just huge for the parent. They know they’ve got something good, basic here to start with. So if they are going home to a meal of pasta then at least here they had milk, they had a fruit, a vegetable."

The district plans to expand the program in 19 more schools by the end of the school year. "There are some of these kids who you know just don’t eat when they go home," said Jennifer LeBarre, nutrition services director for the district, where about 70 percent of its 38,000 students qualify for subsidized meals.

After a woman heard noises in her Wichita home at about 3:55 a.m. Saturday, she saw a man standing in her hallway. Police said the woman, in her 20s, retreated to a bedroom, closed the door and called 911. She could hear the man walk down the hallway and stand next to the door. One of the officers responding to the call in the 1000 block of South Richmond, near Kellogg and Meridian, reported that a man was putting items from a dresser into his pocket. When police arrested him, he had jewelry in his pocket. The man, in his 30s, also had marijuana.

Gophers digging in Salina levee SALINA — Gophers have been causing problems for Salina, burrowing in the city’s flood-control levee. The gophers have been digging burrows and tunnels that could create problems in the city’s 21-mile levee. Mike Fraser, Salina’s director of public works, said that if the gophers create enough holes, the levee could fail under stress from floodwaters. Fraser’s levee staff have been fighting the gophers with traps and have killed 369 gophers since 2009.

hour, included many other songs from her recent release, including current single “Whatcha Gonna Do” as well as “Teenage Daughters” (McBride has a couple of those). An emotional moment came when McBride sang the touching “I’m Gonna Love You Through It,” a song about living with cancer. But McBride also delivered most of her popular radio hits, including “Wild Angels” and “This One’s For the Girl.”

Jack Goates, the city’s flood control supervisor, said the Corps of Engineers requires the city to have an animal control program.

She also performed the Etta James classic “At Last,” reportedly at the request of her mother, who McBride said was in the audience. McBride said she hadn’t performed the song in concert for five years. “When mom asks for a song, you do the song,” she said. McBride finished her set with arguably her two most popular hits, “A Broken Wing” and “Independence Day.” Her set ended with a standing ovation from the crowd. After “A Broken Wing” and just before her final song, “Independence Day,” McBride thanked all her supporters in the audience. “Growing up here was one of the best things that ever happened to me,” she said. “I think it’s one of the reasons I am where I am today.”

Brett Walton is the owner of Midwest Research and Supply, a company that distributes of meat processing equipment to people and businesses. He’s changing the name of the company his father founded in 1986 to Walton’s Inc. BY DAN VOORHIS The Wichita Eagle

rett Walton has taken to wearing his name on his shirt. Walton is about to change the name of his company, Mid-Western Research & Supply, a supplier of meat-processing equipment and supplies nationwide, to Walton’s Inc. The company was founded by his father, Don Walton, in 1986. His sister, Stephanie Jennings, is the office manager; his wife, Sandy, designs the catalogs; and their son Austin runs the website. It’s been a family business without a family name. It wouldn’t be such a big deal except that he’s got big plans for the future. The company has seen doubledigit growth almost every year over the last decade. It has outgrown its warehouse/office in Old Town, and he expects to start construction on a new building soon, perhaps with-


in a few months. The company, at 430 N. Mosley, has 23 employees, and Walton expects $9 million in sales this year. About 85 percent of the company’s sales come from 4,000 small meat processors, called meat lockers. The rest of the sales are to individuals, typically hunters, who want to make their own sausage or ground meat. The old 25,000-square-foot brick warehouse, which is broken into a maze of rooms, reaches its peak of activity in the fall, with the arrival of hunting season and the holidays. It starts slowing in late winter and hits its low spot in May. This time of year allows him to think ahead. “I’m really excited looking forward,” he said.

HOLLIDAYSBURG, Pa. — Don’t tell Michael W. McLanahan that manufacturing in the United States is dead. His family-owned, privately-held company has made mineral processing and farm equipment since its founding in 1835 — and is enjoying a boom. “It was our best year ever,” said McLanahan, during a tour of the busy factory in central Pennsylvania that illustrates why manufacturing is growing twice as fast as the broader economy. McLanahan, 73, is the fifth generation of his family to run the capital-intensive company. It builds equipment to help mining companies separate product from waste, the dairy industry to remove manure from sand and the energy sector to segregate gravel from silica sand used in fracking – the process of drilling through shale deposits thousands of feet below ground to reach natural gas. McLanahan Corp. boomed even as U.S. economy struggled to gain momentum in 2011 and the global economy was panicked and fearful that Europe’s debt problems would drag everyone down. One important reason for McLanahan’s success – and for U.S. manufacturing’s rising luster – is an export revival. McLanahan Corp. is no outlier. The manufacturing sector as a whole bounced back in 2011, adding more than 287,000 positions over the last 13 months and shifting into higher gear after a summer slowdown brought on by fears about European debt. During 2011, exports of U.S. goods and services were up by 14.5 percent over 2010, to a record $2.1 trillion, the Commerce Department reported last week. And despite Europe’s economic problems, U.S. exports to Europe rose 3.6 percent in December. Please see FACTORIES, Page 11B

Offshore banking tips: First, get a million BY CONNIE CASS Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Movie superspies James Bond and Jason Bourne use them. So do real-life presidential candidate Mitt Romney, who says he pays his taxes, and untold numbers of Americans who don’t. Swiss banks and their secretive counterparts around the globe may sound like the exclusive province of the wealthy, the mysterious or the shady, but anybody

can legally open an offshore account. Wouldn’t it be swell to have a cool million stashed away on a sunny Caribbean island? Here’s how to do it:

Step 1: Get a million dollars. How? There are essentially two ways – legally or illegally. For those with dirty cash to launder – drug traffickers, mobsters, smugglers, swindlers and such –

offshore accounts hidden from the law are the obvious choice (skip to Step 5). For honest money, there’s more to consider.

Step 2: Decide whether to tell the IRS. U.S. citizens are supposed to pay taxes no matter where their money is. But the IRS can’t tax what it doesn’t know about, and the odds of getting caught offshore have been slim. But beware

– that’s changing. The government has landed some big fish – notably the largest Swiss bank, UBS AG – and tax cheats are getting scooped up in the net. In an unprecedented break from Swiss legal tradition, UBS turned over the names of more than 4,000 suspected U.S. tax evaders in 2010 as part of a deal to settle conspiracy charges. Since then, the United States has Please see OFFSHORE, Page 11B

WALTON From Page 9B KFDI-AM – started the company after working at Ohse Foods. He saw an opportunity to supply grinder plates and knife blades for the company’s commercial meat machines. Brett Walton came over to the company from a floor supervising job at Love Box in 1996. Growth accelerated in 2001 when the company sent out its first catalogs. It’s been averaging more than 10 percent annual growth ever since. The recession and tough recovery haven’t dented his sales growth at all, he said. Brett Walton attributes that mainly to the fact that he’s a relatively small player in a big market, even though he’s probably the second-largest distributor of meat-processing supplies to commercial butchers. Plus, he said, food is largely recession proof. “Meat processors haven’t slowed down because people keep eating,” he said.

FACTORIES From Page 9B In the 1990s, as environmental regulation stiffened the U.S. mining industry, McLanahan refocused the company to take advantage of export opportunities. Back then, about 10 percent of the company’s product went overseas. Today it’s about 70 percent. Mineral-rich Australia is a big customer, and McLanahan has benefited greatly from that country’s high labor costs and weaker manufacturing base. “We can build here and ship into Australia for cheaper than they can make it there,” McLanahan said. He laments that mining in the United States has shrunk so much, and with it, domestic sales opportunities. “I knew that the future of our company depended on a robust export effort,” he said. During a recent visit, the Pennsylvania manufacturer was busy filling orders from Iceland and Colombia, as well as actively building log washers for the timber industry and equipment for dairy farmers. It recently installed equipment in Glen Rose, Texas, to prepare fracking sand for shipment. Natural gas drillers in Pennsylvania are consuming so much silica sand, he said, that the price now varies between $240 a ton to $400 a ton, compared to $10 a ton for sand used in concrete mix.

Nationwide rebound Other data also signal a nationwide manufacturing rebound. December orders for durable goods – big-ticket items such as cars, refrigerators and industrial equipment – rose by a better-than-expected 3 percent. That was on top of November’s upward revision to a 4.7 percent increase. Similarly, Federal Reserve data for December show manufacturing output rose ninetenths of a percentage point. For the final three months of 2011, industrial production rose at an annualized rate of 3.1 percent, the 10th-straight quarter of growth. It’s good news for a sector that accounts for about 12 percent of the U.S. economy but lost more than 6 million jobs over the past decade.



An employee works at McLanahan Corp. in Hollidaysburg, Penn. The company continues to hire in its export unit. There’s even anecdotal evidence that some companies that had shifted production overseas are beginning to come home, a process known as in-sourcing or re-shoring. Some orders for iron castings that McLanahan had lost to China are returning because of quality and supply issues. How many firms are moving back? It’s hard to know. “It’s a hard number to quantify — the notion of out-sourcing and in-sourcing. There’s a hype to both of those numbers,” said Chad Moutray, chief economist for the National Association of Manufacturers. “We have a lot of foreign companies that are locating here. It’s a global decision-making process right now.” Right now many factors are combining to make American manufacturing more attractive than it’s been in quite a while. These include rising production costs in China, flat wage growth in the United States, corporate borrowing rates near historic lows, a weakening of the dollar against the currencies of competitors in hot emerging economies, and a boom in U.S. natural gas production that’s lowering a key cost for U.S. factories. “Labor cost is not the only factor that is under consideration when you are locating. Taxes, energy costs, the advantage of being closer to the customer,” Moutray said. “A sea-change in our thinking, at least globally, is that the U.S. is now on the map when it comes to these decisions.”

Other views Not everyone buys the trend. “I think it feels better than it is. The data itself looks to be very seriously flawed, and although dead-cat bounce is too strong a term, there is a kernel of truth in it,” said Alan Tonelson, a research fellow at the U.S. Business and Industry Council, which represents smaller U.S. manufacturers who do not operate abroad. Tonelson points to a widening deficit in manufactured goods, noting that even as exports grow, ground is being lost to foreign competitors. A USBIC study released Feb. 7 found that Chinese exporters had captured 7.5 percent of American purchases of 108 different capital-intensive segments of U.S. high-tech manufacturing in 2010. “It is very difficult to see how the manufacturing sector could be excelling as it is losing market share in its own backyard,” said Tonelson, author of the book “Race to the Bottom.” Daniel Meckstroth, chief economist for the Manufacturers Alliance for Productivity and Innovation, an industry research group, sees conditions for sustained improvement for U.S. manufacturers. “The exchange rate is 20 percent lower if you look at the broader trade-weighted dollar, cheapest natural gas prices in the world, modest compensation increases, unit labor costs declining over the five years,” he said. “You could expect that in a current decision, firms would be more likely to purchase domestic than from a foreign supplier. havens or financial hideaways. Tax havens usually boast: ■ Little or no income tax. ■ Laws that make it a crime for banks to reveal account holders’ names. ■ A history of failing to cooperate with other nations’ tax collectors.

Step 6: Open an account. Law-abiding customers who can’t travel to an offshore bank can usually set up an account by mail with little or no minimum deposit. For tax evaders and those playing the angles, a network of accountants, lawyers and bankers is ready to set up shell companies and phony trusts to hide behind. They can get creative. Former UBS banker Bradley Birkenfeld told investigators he helped a billionaire client withdraw his funds in the form of diamonds. Birkenfeld flew to America with the diamonds hidden in his luggage, inside a tube of toothpaste.

That’s, I think, the good news.” A less-discussed factor in the rebound of U.S. manufacturing is last year’s horrific earthquake and tsunami in Japan, and devastating flooding in Thailand later in the year. The natural disasters forced multinational corporations to rethink how they purchase parts from across the globe. “The bigger issue is do you want long supply chains now,” said Meckstroth, pointing to the auto sector that normally gets shipments twice a day to allow for production in 12-hour cycles. The process is called just-in-time manufacturing. While popular over the past decade, it is now less so because natural disasters exposed the weaknesses in holding skimpy inventory. “You can’t afford a ship not getting there, being delayed. The ideal situation is to have a factory closer to your supplier,” he said.

More with less While good numbers of late point to improvement in demand for U.S. manufactured goods, there’ve also been significant gains in productivity, or the per-hour output of U.S. workers. It increased by an average of about 4 percent annually during the past decade, and reached a 5 percent increase from June to September last year. For durable goods, manufacturing productivity was up 9 percent. Put simply, manufacturers are doing a lot more with fewer workers. This helps explain why the bounce-back of manufacturing employment is less than it appears, partly because it comes off a very steep decline. The U.S. economy contracted by about 5 percent during the recession, but had recovered the lost terrain by last September. “Manufacturing has only halfrecovered, it’s 56 percent recovered,” said Meckstroth, noting that his sector fell 20 percent and has recovered about 11 percentage points. “It has to grow another 9 percent to get back to where it was before the recession.” Economists at MAPI don’t expect the sector to fully recover until 2014.

wo more Wichita natives have spent the past week in the nationally televised spotlight. One of them doesn’t care. He’s a honey badger, and he takes what he wants. The other is famous opera star Joyce DiDonato, a Wichita State University graduate who just won her first Grammy. DiDonato, an internationally known mezzosoprano, won the Grammy for Best Classical Vocal Solo Album for her latest release, “Diva Divo.” She was the first classical vocalist ever to perform live at the Grammys, which she did during the Feb. 12 pre-televised ceremony. Wearing a dazzling silver ball gown, DiDonato performed “Non piu mesta,” from Rossini’s “La Cenerentola.” The star was born in Prairie Village, where she still has relatives, and graduated from WSU’s opera pro-

he Wichita Art Museum’s inner core galleries are brimming with more than 80 prints, paintings and drawings by African-American artists whose works span nearly 120 years. In time to honor African-American history and culture during Black History Month, the museum this weekend opens the new exhibit “Harmon and Harriet Kelley Collection of African American Art.” The works in the exhibition come from the private collection of Harmon and Harriet Kelley of San Antonio, Texas. During the past 30 years, the couple has amassed a collection that has traveled to many art museums across the country. The collection features works of

These early works date from the late 19th and early 20th centuries. We are very excited to see these pieces, which include four etchings by

Henry Ossawa Tanner.” Tanner was one of the first leading AfricanAmerican artists to achieve enormous global success. A native of Pennsylvania, he encountered a great deal of racism in the United States and therefore spent the majority of his life working successfully in Paris, where he studied many of the artistic greats and develPlease see ART, Page 2C

Wichitan’s ‘Darkness’ named goriest film of all time


ews and thoughts — HorrorHound magazine — which could be the equivalent of Vanity Fair for gore fans — has named Wichitan Leif Jonker’s 1993 vampire flick “Darkness” its No. 1 goriest film of all time in its latest issue. It’s a testament to the film’s staying power. Made when writer/ editor/producer/director Jonker was just 19, the film has built a cult fan base through the years, and has played at film festivals around the world. HorrorHound calls it “easily the goriest vampire film to date,” citing the film’s “record number of exploding heads.” You don’t see that on a resume every day. The story follows a small town (Wichita) as it’s being overtaken by an army of vampires. A young survivor sets out to battle the undead,

NEIL From Page 1C gram in 1992. DiDonato is now considered among the top two mezzo-sopranos in the world, said Wichita Grand Opera director Pavan Bakardiev, and she’s in high demand. “Her career has been skyrocketing in the last two or three years around the globe,” Bakardiev said. “She is the total package. She has the voice, the looks, the charisma, the versatility, and she has that special extra when she walks on stage. People like to listen to her.” But DiDonato remains loyal to the town where it all started. She stays in touch with faculty at the WSU opera program, and in 2003, she performed for the school’s College of Fine Arts Connoisseur Series. In 2009, she performed in Wichita Grand Opera’s “The Barber of Seville.” And last year, she obtained special permission from New York’s Metropolitan Opera, where she was under contract, to perform at Wichita Grand Opera’s 10th Anni-

Under President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, the program promoted and protected the arts with the funding of many public arts projects. This era resulted in an enormous output of historically important social realist artwork that documents the social politics and culture of the day. “One of the most prominent artists found in this grouping is ground-breaking printmaker Dox Thrash,” Gleissner said. In the third grouping, art that ranges in date from the 1950s through the present day, one sees more politically and socially charged subject matter. “This was the era of civil rights. Many of the works of this era are so powerful and very bold and striking. Two of the artists included here are John Biggers and Charles White,” Gleissner said. “The works by artists of the later years make much more of a statement than what is seen in the early works, which center more on everyday life or worldly travel.” The Kelleys began collecting in 1980, after they saw an African-American art exhibition at their local art museum in San Antonio, Gleissner said. “They both realized that they didn’t recognize any of the artists or artworks in that exhibition and that this was a huge part of their culture that

That’s not because the species is endangered, Fouts said, but rather because no one cared much about honey badgers before last year. That’s when a Los Angeles man known as “Randall” became an Internet sensation

for his YouTube video featuring a honey badger — a video that now has been viewed more than 37.8 million times. The 3 1⁄2-minute piece features Randall’s ridiculous, PG-13-rated narration over a National Geographic video of a honey badger hunting snakes and mice, being stung by bees, attacked by snakes and bullied by birds while in never-ending pursuit of food. (You can see it by searching “honey badger” on, but be warned: The language is as rough as the honey badger.) The narration includes the now-famous phrases, “honey badger don’t care” and “honey badger takes what it wants.” The video, released a year ago, became so popular that LSU cornerback Tyrann Mathieu was nicknamed “Honey Badger” this season, and fans and sportscasters began wearing T-shirts to games that said “Honey Badger Takes What He Wants.” Randall now has a website ( and a

book and a whole bunch of other narrated animal videos, though the honey badger video is by far the most popular. It’s hard to understand why the video is so funny if you haven’t seen it, but the millions who have think it’s so funny that the honey badger has become a bit of a pop culture phenomenon, and now talk shows are calling. Wildlife expert Jack Hanna, who has a longstanding relationship with Tanganyika, recently asked to take Diablo on the talk show circuit. On Monday, Diablo and Hanna appeared on CBS’s “The Talk.” They’ll also appear on “Late Show With David Letterman” on Monday and they have spots booked next week on “Good Morning America” and “Anderson Cooper 360,” though Fouts doesn’t know exactly when the latter two shows will air. Fouts, who has been traveling with Diablo to all his appearances, said the honey badger video really took off

just as the park’s season ended last year, so he’ll be interested to see how much more popular the honey badger exhibit is when the park reopens in March. In the meantime, he’s enjoying the honey badger hubbub. “I don’t know how many times I’ve watched the video,” he said. “It’s pretty funny, and it’s pretty accurate. The honey badger doesn’t care what he eats. They’re pretty darn tough. They don’t back down. If they want it, they just take it.” Reach Denise Neil at 316-268-6327 or Follow Denise on Twitter: @DeniseNeil.




4 picks from Book Critics Circle award finalists BY MARY ANN GWINN The Seattle Times

Every year for the last six years, this has been my routine in January and February: I shut myself in a room with a jar of peanut butter and a box of crackers, say goodbye to my family, and read the finalists for the National Book Critics Circle awards. I’m on the board of the NBCC. One of our duties is to read five finalists in each of six award categories — fiction, nonfiction, biography, autobiography, criticism and poetry — in the two months between the time the finalists are announced in January and the winners are chosen in March (since I was on the committees for nonfiction and biography, I had a head start with those). Overwhelmed by this cascade of literary riches, I always have the same thought: there are so many great books out there, but everybody keeps reading the same book! (1. “The Help.” 2. “The Hunger Games.”) So, as Monty Python would say, and now for something completely different. Crack one of these books and you’ll learn a lot, maybe even think differently when you’re done: “George F. Kennan: An American Life” by John Lewis Gaddis (Penguin Press, 800 pages, $39.95) By coming up with the “containment” strategy that kept the U.S. and the Soviet Union from taking up weapons against each other after World War II, American diplomat Kennan kept the Cold War from turning into a hot one (think thermonuclear weapons). Lessons learned from the story of Kennan, a brilliant strategist temperamentally unsuited to politics: 1. Even great people have bad days, and 2. All human beings, even very smart ones, are to some degree at war with themselves. Biography finalist. “A World on Fire: Britain’s Crucial Role in the Civil War” by Amanda Foreman (Random House, 1,008 pages, $35) Confederate spies (some in hoop skirts) plotting in the streets of London. English lords, ladies and politicians battling in the parlor and Parliament over whether the Union or the Confederacy held the higher moral and tactical ground. And a whole cast of British eccentrics who blithely signed up to fight on both sides, and learned the true, horrible cost of war. Foreman is gorgeous, has five children and still writes informative, breathtakingly readable books. I should hate her, but oddly, I don’t. Nonfiction finalist. “Pulphead: Essays” by John Jeremiah Sullivan (Farrar, Straus & Giroux, 384 pages, $16 paper) This brilliant young essayist made me actually enjoy pondering the deeper meaning of rock icon Axl Rose. Nonfiction finalist. “The Stranger’s Child” by Alan Hollinghurst (Knopf, 448 pages, $27.95) This novel by British author Hollinghurst, who won the Man Booker prize for “The Line of Beauty,” tells the story of a randy, largerthan-life World War I poet whose life story becomes glossed over and eventually ossified by succeeding generations determined to freeze his image in amber. This book, among others, has solidified my conviction that the Brits are really, truly, smarter than we are, at least when it comes to turning a phrase. Fiction finalist. You can find the complete list of finalists at Winners will be announced on March 8.

NEW & RECOMMENDED “Rub Out the Words: The Letters of William S. Burroughs 1959-1974” edited by Bill Morgan (Ecco, $35) Williams S. Burroughs was one of the Beat movement’s more radical writers, authoring such groundbreaking novels as “Junky” and “Naked Lunch.” Fifteen years after his death, he is the focal point in a collection of more than three hundred letters to recipients such as Allen Ginsberg, Gregory Corso, Jack Kerouac, and Timothy Leary. This volume is not just an intimate glimpse into the life of a misunderstood artist, but a chronicle of literary artistry. “The Orphan Master’s Son” by Adam Johnson (Random House, $26) North Korea is probably one of the most mysterious places in the world. Set against that backdrop, Johnson gives us a character whose world is defined by astonishing hardship, pain and endurance, yet brightened with camaraderie, moments of beauty, and love. Part literary thriller, part social history, part love story, “The Orphan Master’s Son” is a riveting portrait of a world hidden from view. Watermark best sellers 1.

Tragedy, comedy, identity FICTION

■ The Holocaust is a dark cloud in the stories of Nathan Englander’s new collection. By Gordon Houser

“What We Talk About When We Talk About Anne Frank” by Nathan Englander (Knopf, 207 pages, $24.95)


nglander’s second story collection (he’s also published a novel) includes eight new stories that combine comedy and tragedy and consider larger questions about human nature. He presents those questions through the lenses of Jewish characters of all ages, from New York to Europe to Israel. The title story brings together two married couples in one couple’s home in Florida. The other couple, Mark and Lauren, are Hasidic and live in Israel. Deb and Lauren are longtime friends. The couples talk from different perspectives. Mark says that “the most annoying thing about being Hasidic in the outside world … is the constant policing by civilians.” He notes that Deb and her husband, the unnamed narrator, are obsessed with the Holocaust “as a necessary sign of identity.” For him, the current Holocaust that is destroying Judaism is intermarriage. Soon the tension eases as they partake of the Florida couple’s son’s stash of marijuana. Soon they’re laughing, then satisfying their hunger. Later they play a game Deb and Lauren played when they were young. Called “the Anne Frank game,” it asks players to imagine a second Holocaust, then talk about which of

their Christian friends would hide them. The game leads to a surprising — and alarming — revelation. In the back of every character’s mind in these stories is the Holocaust. The characters vary greatly in their observation of Jewish practices, yet that dark cloud affects them all. In “Camp Sundown,” a camp director tries to talk a group of elderly vigilantes from taking action against someone they believe is a Nazi from the concentration camps. Mixed with that tension is some funny dialogue that plays with language. One character says someone “wears now a wig and eats the snafu hot dogs.” The camp director corrects him: “Tofu.” In “How We Avenged the Blums,” young Jewish boys try to deal with a bully they call the Anti-Semite. They go to an 18-year-old Jewish boy for help. He tells them: “It’s a delicate thing being Jewish. … It’s a condition that aggravates the more mind you pay it.” In spite of wanting vengeance, the narrator at the end decides “I’d always feel that to be broken was better than

to break — my failing.” These stories deal with how to be Jewish in a world that is often anti-Semitic. Yet Englander does not romanticize Jews or portray them merely as victims. The enemies of many of these characters are themselves. Two of the stories are set in Israel. “Sister Hills” describes the beginning of an Israeli settlement from the beginning of the Yom Kippur War in 1973 through today. It’s told as a fable about the surviving founders of the settlement, two women who made a pact that has harrowing consequences later. It also shows the harshness of keeping Jewish laws. “Free Fruit for Young Widows,” perhaps the best story in the collection, unveils the evolution of evil in a man who survived the Holocaust at great cost to his soul. A father describes to his son “the hazy morality of combat” and the “gray space that was called real life.” He tells his son not to judge the man who survived the Holocaust too severely: “You, spoiled child, apply the rules of civilization to a boy who had seen only its opposite.”

Poems have traditional forms, modern subjects BROWSING


“The Assumption,” by Bryan D. Dietrich (WordFarm, 84 Pages, $15) In spite of the title, these are not religious poems. ... Or are they? Though Dietrich doesn’t use the word “Assumption” to mean clearly the taking into heaven of the Virgin Mary, he does seem to have in mind the taking-it-for-granted that Something above us exists. Some of the lines in these 57 poems suggest that the Something may be God. But Dietrich, a professor at Newman University, comes closer to identifying some heedless power, as in the shivery fifth poem of the section called “The Astronomer,” which asks us to imagine an

“interstellar intelligence / of protoplasmic cloud ... a casteless, chlorophyllic civilization.” Having imagined that, the poet says, “Now try to imagine such species care, or give a techno-damn.” Well, Dietrich does care, at least in this collection. That — the intensity of his questioning, his imagining — is what gives the poems the power to keep a reader butting through the tangles of recondite allusions to monsters, myths, current events, wars and philosophies, not to mention the syntax that can be as jungly as this, referring to our inevitable lack of knowledge about unseen things: “that great gaping lack smacks us with its loss / of being loss, becomes a presence, lung / for those who cannot breathe, but wholly, space.” In spite of the modern-plus effects these poems make, their forms are traditional. All but the last two poems are sonnets of the standard 14 lines, though the lines are of irregular length and meter. The poems within each section are connected to each other tail-inmouth. They even rhyme, mostly. The modernness comes in good part from Dietrich’s snatching of sounds and images like grains from

whatever cosmic dust clouds come screaming past his head. He can read, as a result, like a parody of Gerard Manley Hopkins: “Each rock-pocked rockpile robots maneuver, / each rocket-picked planetary pocket emptied of ‘sin,’ / ceases to astound with silence.” The final poem in the collection, not a sonnet, has the narrator as a grade-school student discovering, and being horrified by, a book saying the universe must end. “Burn it, hide it,” he tells his teacher. And the 56th and last of the sonnets, in the section called “The Believer,” ends with something like relief after the groping, often brilliant turmoil of most of the book. “When / those great glowing prayer wheels ... / come suckling for me like all God’s children / drawn down from the deep,” it says, “I will go, cold, without question, / even trusting. It’s a fusty blade, religion.” Then, as if the poet had paused to reflect that this final sonnet should convey an extra bit of assurance, he adds a 15th line, “We all must greet it, fleshless, in the end.” Donald Mace Williams, an Eagle columnist through most of the 1990s, is the author of the single-poem chapbook “Wolfe” and the novel “Black Tuesday’s Child.” He lives in Canyon, Texas.

Englander is a fine writer who is willing to take risks. Two of the stories, “Peep Show” and “Everything I Know About My Family on My Mother’s Side” are more experimental. He is deft at using apt phrases. He describes “this Pat Tillman, quagmire-of-Iraq world” or someone who speaks “with his ‘master’s in social work’ tone.” Englander includes many Hebrew or Yiddish words and some Jewish arcana, and sometimes it’s obscure. For example, it would help to know what a “hametz” is. And one passage runs, “he went to heder, had the peyes and all that. But in America, a classic galusmonger.” He also provides many interesting insights, such as this about “Israel’s own internal plague … the one that took more children of Israel than all the bloodshed and hatred of all their long wars combined,” referring to highway accidents. Englander is part of a new generation of outstanding shortstory writers and definitely worth reading. Gordon Houser is a writer and editor in Newton.

Telltale burn marks show that smoker hasn’t cleaned up his act DEAR ABBY: “Dwayne,” my boyfriend of eight years, insists on smoking in his bedroom. In our last apartment he’d fall asleep with a lit cigarette and ended up burning holes in our couch, numerous blankets and pillows as well as the carpet. We live together with our 6-year-old son and, needless to say, I’m scared to death Dwayne will burn this place down. I have talked to him about it numerous times. All he does is yell and say it won’t happen because cigarettes are “safer now.” I have discussed this with our landlord to no avail. I thought about calling social services, but I don’t want to get him in trouble. I could really use some good advice.

SUNDAY’S PUZZLES BRIDGE/STEVE BECKER North dealer. Both sides vulnerable. The bidding:







Assume you’re East, defending against three notrump. You might not agree with North’s opening bid, but there’s nothing you can do about that. West leads a heart, which you win with the ace. What should you play next? (Remember, you see only the dummy’s hand and your own.) It would seem you have no chance to stop the contract unless your side can quickly snatch four club tricks. Dummy has nine practically sure tricks in plain view. So, acting on this basis, you could return a low club hoping to find your partner with three or four clubs to the king (almost impossible in view of South’s one-notrump bid). But observe what happens if you do this. Declarer follows low – there is no reason to risk playing the king – and West wins the club with the jack. West returns a club to your ace, and the party is over. South makes four notrump. Now let’s go back to trick two. Instead of leading the three of clubs, let’s say you lead the queen! Of course, South can make the contract by playing the king, but is he likely to do that? He might think you have the Q-J-9-x(-x) of clubs and refuse to cover the queen. If he ducks, you continue with the three. What will South do this time? If he thinks you started with Q-J-9-3, he will follow low again, counting on dummy’s 10 to force West’s ace. The contract is then defeated when partner wins with the jack and returns another club. Of course, South might guess correctly and play his king on either the first or second club lead. The important point, though, is that by playing your clubs in the suggested fashion, you give declarer a chance to go wrong. South might get it right, but at least you’ve given yourself some hope of defeating the contract.

British press, government slam TripAdvisor I

t’s fascinating to compare the different ways in which TripAdvisor is regarded by the press and the regulators of Britain, and the press and the regulators of the United States. Here in America, no one seriously challenges the claims of TripAdvisor to provide accurate reflections of hotels and resorts. In Great Britain, the opposite is the case. Recently, the Advertising Standards Authority of Great Britain issued an extraordinary ruling that TripAdvisor can no longer claim that all of its reviews are “honest, real or trusted” or that all of its reviews are by “real travelers.” The ASA has demanded that TripAdvisor make big changes to its advertising. Side by side with the regulators, the British press keeps up a steady drum-beat of vehement exposes of reviews appearing on Recently, The Lon-

ARTHUR FROMMER BUDGET TRAVEL don Telegraph printed a long critique, pointing out that TripAdvisor’s reviews frequently combine, in the same review, both a five-star rave about a particular hotel and a statement that the same hotel “is the worst in the world.” “The time has come,” the British newspaper continued, “for a re-think on how they (TripAdvisor) verify their reviews. At the very least, anyone that wants to leave a review must prove that they have stayed or eaten at the given hotel or restaurant. All

the ASA ruling has done is highlight the need for such a change.” Meantime, the Irish Times of Dublin has printed an even more harsh indictment. It tells how a staff member at the Carlton Hotel Group of Ireland e-mailed dozens of its employees, asking them to take photos of various rooms to be inserted into fake reviews submitted to TripAdvisor. That way, a mass of favorable reviews would appear in each of the writeups of the chain’s hotels. Employees were cautioned to

use crude cellphone cameras for taking the shots, and to send in the reviews on computers that had no association with the hotels or the group. (When Carlton’s lawyers heard of these instructions, they apparently forall these reports, TripAdvisor has responded with sanctimonious claims of the extreme measures it allegedly takes to weed out phony comments from its website, comments either pro or con. No convincing proof is offered of the company’s ability to spot these invented claims. But it

apparently continues to oppose any demand that it requires its reviewers to show proof that they have actually stayed as guests at the hotels in question; such a procedure is the only one that could cut down drastically on false raves or critiques. I have earlier written of my own inability to make heads or tails out of various TripAdvisor reviews that I have read. How do you reach a judgment about a hotel if 10 people call it a sheer wonder and 10 other people call it a fleabag? Even when such

Bathroom, wet carpet derail train trip Q: We recently traveled on Amtrak’s California Zephyr from Chicago to Sacramento. It was not a good experience. When we entered the sleeper bedroom, it was readily apparent that the visual depiction on the Amtrak website was a gross exaggeration. The condition of the car was very poor. We soon realized that the latch on the bathroom door had a problem. When my wife tried to operate the latch from inside the bathroom, she found that she was trapped. The door could only be opened from the outside. We discussed this with the attendant and she said she could move us to the only remaining bedroom available. We decided that would be the best so we moved to another bedroom. The new room was no better. The carpet was soaked. An attendant told us that a drink was spilled in that room and gave us towels to put on the floor as a second carpet. It didn’t work too well. We had to keep our shoes on or suffer wet feet

CHRISTOPHER ELLIOTT TRAVEL TROUBLESHOOTER whenever we were in the room. Both bedrooms were decrepit. They looked totally worn out and unclean. We were told when we booked that we would have to change cars in Denver, so we decided that we could suffer through one night. But our bedroom in Denver was even worse. The stench inside the car was almost unbearable. As cellphone service would allow in the mountains, I contacted Marriott and secured a room for the night in Salt Lake City. I also called the airline and


booked a flight for the next day. When we arrived at Salt Lake City at around midnight, we left the train and continued with our trip. I’ve written to Amtrak, asking for a refund. It sent me two vouchers for $400. I want my money back. Can you help? — David Battas, Indianapolis A: Amtrak knows that the first-class service on its Zephyr needs a little work. According to a September 2010 Performance Improvement Plan, an upgrade of its trains is under way, but not in time for your trip. Amtrak’s refund policy on unused tickets can be found on its website. The company is technically right: Your accommodation charge wouldn’t have been refundable in your situation, since you canceled your trip less than seven days before your departure. There’s no mention of partial refunds for passengers who disembark before the end of their trip. But that’s beside the point. Amtrak promises a “more luxurious experience” on the

Zephyr, which it calls “one of the most beautiful train tips in all of North America.” Maybe it’s just referring to the outdoor scenery. Could this have been avoided? Maybe. The online reviews on the Zephyr are mixed, at best. Reading them might have prompted you to avoid the entire experience, or at least waited until the renovations were complete. Clearly, you were sold a bill of goods. Amtrak’s terms don’t apply because it breached its own contract, giving you a substandard

product for your first-class fare. I think you’re owed a full refund. I contacted Amtrak on your behalf, and it agreed. It refunded your entire train ticket.

The Jayhawks recorded the easy victory — No. 1,000 all time in conTEXAS TECH 50 ference play NO. 4 KANSAS 83 for the program — and coach Bill Self was able to rest starters as Kansas approaches a stretch of the schedule that will determine the Big 12 championship. The run starts Wednesday at Texas A&M, continues Saturday with co-Big 12 leader Missouri’s visit and on Monday at Oklahoma State. By then, the finish line for the Big 12 marathon season will be in sight. “It’s a hard schedule, a really hard schedule,” Self said. “Missouri is so important, but the thing about is winning at A&M is just as important. Winning at Oklahoma State is just as important.” Saturday’s outcome did nothing to alter the perception that fourth-ranked Kansas (22-5, 12-2 Big 12) is ready for the challenge. “It was a good win, we were solid,” Self said. “But it definitely wasn’t anything to get giddy about.” The Jayhawks broke free

AVIDSON, N.C. — Eye test, road test, BracketBusters test — Wichita State passed them all on Saturday with a 91-74 win at Davidson. Surely, members of the NCAA Tournament selection committee watched. Surely, the win confirmed the growing notion that WSU isn’t just a tournament team, it’s a tournament team worthy of a favorable seed. “When you can win, especially by this margin in this building, you’ve made something happen,” WSU coach Gregg Marshall said. “It keeps our win streak intact in front of the selection committee and it gives us a quality win.” Marshall won game No. 300 in his 14 seasons with a second-half performance worthy of a landmark win. The Shockers (24-4) made 20 of 25 shots in the second half, blowing open a close game with points on 10 straight possessions. WSU ran a layup line against Davidson (20-7), the Southern Conference leader, and scored 58 points in the lane without a monster contribution from center Garrett Stutz. Joe Ragland scored 30 points for the 24th-ranked Shockers, 18 in the second half. Toure Murry added 16 points and six assists and those two got WSU’s fastbreak rolling in the second half. “When you take bad shots, that leads to easy run-outs,” Davidson center Jake Cohen said. “They’re a good transition team and we knew it was going to be a challenge. If we

KU made its first seven shots, and guards Elijah Johnson, Travis Releford and Tyshawn Taylor took their men off the dribble. Offense came easily for most of the half. But things got stale for a while. After 10 minutes of the second half, each team had logged 12 points. It felt like the Oklahoma State game in Lawrence a week ago, when Kansas jumped to a huge halftime lead and spent the second half going through the motions as the Cowboys pecked away.

Busch spin out, you know?” smiled Busch, who gave Toyota its first Shootout victory. The event was a preview of next weekend’s season-opening Daytona 500, and showed that NASCAR has successfully broken up the two-car tandem racing that dominated restrictor-plate racing last year. Fans were overwhelmingly opposed to that style of racing – NASCAR said earlier this month surveys showed over 80 percent of those polled hated the tandem – and the sanctioning body worked hard through the offseason to develop a rules package that would separate the cars. It was obvious at the start that the new rules worked as the drivers were lumped into a big pack and raced two-andthree wide for almost the entire race. Although it led to two big accidents – including an accident that sent Jeff Gordon skidding on his roof for what he said was the first time in his career – the drivers were nearly unanimous in their approval of the racing. “I actually had fun racing at Daytona again, which I haven’t had for a while,” said Stewart, who was beat by .013 seconds – the blink of an eye – to the finish line. “I don’t know what the consensus is from everybody else, but I had more fun as a driver tonight than what we’ve had in the past.” The first multi-car accident was a mere nine laps into the race, and began when David Ragan nudged Paul Menard to trigger the nine-car pileup. A later wreck with two laps remaining sent Gordon sliding on his roof for roughly 1,000 feet. The four-time NASCAR champion ultimately climbed out the window with his car still upside down, but, like Earnhardt, praised the racing. “It’s pretty wild and crazy, but I liked this better than what we had last year. Definitely,” he said. Gordon’s accident began when he ran into the back of Busch, who used his second save of the night to avoid the accident. An earlier save left fellow competitors in awe. “There aren’t many people, ever, who could have done that,” said three-time champion Stewart, who was behind Busch on the first save.

won by more points and put them away the first time we had them down," Bell said. "I’d rather win by a lot than know that you could possibly win or lose the game by one thing that went wrong." The Jets simply refused to allow Permian Basin (18-7, 8-3) walk away with a win. Methodically battling their way back in, Newman tied the game 67-67 with 1:00 to go on a Bell jumper. After a missed shot by the Falcons’ Teisha King, the Jets drew up their winning play with 20.6 seconds left. Using Bell as a decoy, the ball went to 6-foot-2 senior Alina Voronenko who drove

and knocked shot a short, leaning jumper with 10 seconds showing. "I feel like we beat the best team in the conference tonight," Newman coach Jaime Green said. "Those kids compete and they don’t go away. We’re lucky. We’re very lucky." Newman (20-5, 9-2) looked as if it could run away early, building a 31-20 lead in the first half. Other than a 2-2 tie, Permian Basin wasn’t able to keep up. "I think we were shook up when we walked in the door and that’s why we let them get up," Permian Basin coach Adam Collins said. "It was that we were shook up because we

were scared of them, just maybe they were shook up by the moment. A little nervous." The Falcons made a charge toward the end of the first half and went up 38-37 on a pair of King free throws. Newman was also dealt a big loss in the first half when senior Ellen Traylor tore her ACL, an injury that Green felt helped swing momentum back to Permian Basin. "It did, because she’s the heartbeat, and when the kids are relying on someone else to be the heartbeat, you need someone else to step up," Green said. The Jets couldn’t find that heartbeat to replace Traylor

until Bell found her stride again and sparked the Jets’ game-winning rally. "It was the first time I’ve seen Satoria Bell grab her team and take hold of her team," Green said ."She made big shots She made unselfish decisions down the stretch."

East’s Herzberg dominates with 805 The East High bowling team lets out a cheer before the start of the girls section of the City League Bowling Tournament on Saturday at West Acres Bowl.

BY CHRIS HAWKINS Eagle correspondent

East junior Ashlyn Herzberg couldn’t have asked for a better performance. Herzberg bowled a careerhigh 805 series to win the City League girls individual championship and lead the Blue Aces to the team title on Saturday at West Acres Bowl. Kapaun Mount Carmel’s Jacob Klitzke won the boys individual crown with a 704 series, while Bishop Carroll won the boys team title by 83 pins over Heights. Herzberg rolled games of 247, 279 and 279 to blow away the competition. Carroll’s Hollyann Johansen was second with a 618. “I wasn’t even thinking about it when I saw 805,” Herzberg said. “I just couldn’t believe it. I started crying. I couldn’t even imagine it was a great feeling.” But it was more than just a win for Herzberg and the Blue Aces. Their coach, Teresa Hall, lost her husband a week ago after a long battle with diabetes. The girls used that to galvanize them. “The kids said they wanted to do this for me and they have been so awesome,” Hall said. “I can’t tell you how much as a coach that they are just awesome young people.” Herzberg joked that she received 150 hugs after his

victory, but her most special moment was the one she shared with Hall moments after she and her team were announced the winners of the tournament. They embraced each other with tears in their eyes. “This is what she wanted to do,” Hall said as tears rolled down her cheeks. “She is just one special young lady.” At West Acres Bowling Center Boys Team scores—1.

WSU’s Harden gets comfortable BY TAYLOR ELDRIDGE Eagle correspondent

Wichita State freshman women’s basketball player Alex Harden has heard the praise before. It’s the type that makes the face of coach Jody Adams gleam, which speaks more than any words. Alex Harden has heard the yells before, too. They’re the type that seem reserved for her in practice from Adams, whose expectations feel unreachable sometimes to the 18-year-old. Harden expects to hear a lot more of both following her first career start in Friday’s 74-46 victory over Southern Illinois. Harden led the team with 15 points, matching her career-high, and added five rebounds, three assists and four steals in 26 minutes. “I feel better because now I’ve showed (coaches) what they’ve been asking for,” Harden said. “Now it’s more like I just have to keep doing it.” Adams wouldn’t confirm Harden’s promotion to the starting lineup was a permanent move, but didn’t rule it out for today’s home game against Evansville. The benefits were on display Friday. Harden thrived playing with the starters, while Jazimen Gordon, whom Harden replaced, provided energy off the bench. “We see that in practice every day,” senior Haleigh Lankster said of Harden’s play. “I’m glad she finally unleashed it in a game. She’s a great player, phenomenal athlete. We’ve seen a little bit of her track star outside on the court.”

EVANSVILLE AT WICHITA STATE When: 2:05 today Where: Koch Arena Records: UE 5-20, 2-12 MVC; WSU 16-8, 10-3 Radio: KNSS, 1330-AM Harden possesses the most upside of any player Adams has recruited to Wichita State. She is a matchup nightmare with her 5-foot-11 frame. Her first step is too explosive for posts to contain, and she’s adept enough to use her size to bully guards down low. But the tool that sets Harden apart from other freshmen is her vision. One of her shining moments Friday came when she received an entry pass to the post. She spotted up, dribbled right, spun left and elevated for a shot Southern Illinois expected, but never saw. Harden had dropped off a pass to Chynna Turner for a lay-up. “That doesn’t surprise me because we know she has that natural ability,” Adams said. “But if she’s standing there and not using it, then she becomes just like everyone else.” Maintaining consistency is always a battle for freshmen. “There’s always times where you’re like, ‘What am I doing wrong, what’s not working?’ ” Harden said. “But everybody has their down times. You just have to keep your mindset positive and keep working for your team.”

shut out in debut Eagle staff

Wichita State’s baseball team dropped its opener Saturday, falling 1-0 to Louisiana-Lafayette despite having men in scoring position in the final four innings. WSU faced Santa Clara late Saturday night in the Bobcat Invitational in San Marcos, Texas. WSU will play Texas State today. As frustratWICHITA ST. 0 ing as the LA.-LAFAYETTE 1 offense was, giving up the only run in the eighth inning was just as tough. Reliever T.J. McGreevy hit Michael Strentz with a pitch. Strentz moved to second on a sacrifice, then one out later scored on Daniel Nichols’ single through the infield. McGreevy (0-1) gave up three hits over 2 2⁄3 innings in relief of Josh Smith, who allowed a hit in 5 1⁄3 innings. WSU left two on in the sixth, three in the seventh, two in the eighth and a runner on second in the ninth. Casey Gillaspie struck out twice to end innings. WICHITA ST.

It’s an unbelievable feeling." It wasn’t easy, however. After the first 50 yards, Parker was trailing Carroll’s Alec Khoury, who had entered the state meet seeded No. 1 in the event, but struggled to qualify just sixth. But over the last 25 yards, Parker was able to close the gap and at the finish he outtouched his city rival, winning by .07 seconds in 1:02.11. "On my last turn, I saw I was right with him and I knew it would be a race home," said Parker, who also finished third in the 200 individual medley.

Heights tops Southeast, wraps up league title BY TAYLOR ELDRIDGE Eagle correspondent

When Joe Auer set foot inside the Southeast gymnasium on Saturday, he could not block out the memory of Dec. 15, 2009. HEIGHTS 62 The details SOUTHEAST 45 still eat at Auer, even more when he revisits the site of the lone coaching blemish in the past four years in the City League. “That game is etched in my brain,” he said. “I remember

every second of it. I remember it was very poorly-coached. It was a game we learned a lot from. We made some mistakes and afterwards we made a pledge to not repeat them and we’ve done a pretty good job of that.” It’s been 62 games now, after Heights disposed of Southeast 62-45 on Saturday, since the Falcons last lost. The Falcons are 61-1 in the City League in the last four years, and clinched their fourth straight league title with Saturday’s victory.

In all, the Falcons have lost three games in the last four years. Heights senior Perry Ellis said he can recall each. “I still remember it every time I come to this gym,” Ellis said. “It was a tough game. You always hate to lose, but it’s in the past so you can’t do anything about it now.” What Ellis could do was ensure history would not repeat itself. The Kansas signee scored a game-high 24 points, 18 in the second half to keep Southeast at bay. “That damn Perry Ellis is a

beast,” Southeast coach Carl Taylor said. “You can only contain them so long. After that, they’re going to play their game.” Another barricade keeping Southeast from the lead was Gavin Thurman, who scored 16 points in his first game at Southeast since transferring to Heights after last season. “I haven’t shot here since last year, so it was just another gym to me,” Thurman said. But it’s not. It was in this very gym that Thurman scored 14 points as a South-

east sophomore to upset Heights 72-64. “I don’t know, I don’t really remember it,” Thurman said. “It’s a blur to me.” Heights Southeast

Goddard, Ark City fare well on way to 5A wrestling BY JOANNA CHADWICK The Wichita Eagle

VALLEY CENTER — Smiles are usually a rarity during wrestling meets for Goddard coach Brett Means — a highly intense man. But he was thrilled on Saturday at the Class 5A regional. Thrilled to see his team finish nine points behind Arkansas City’s 207 first-place points. Thrilled to see sophomore Christian Frame win his first tournament, coming back to beat Ark City’s Wyatt Villers 12-6 at 138 pounds. And then there was senior Tylor Woodruff, who hadn’t wrestled a match until regionals, all the while trying to battle back from a knee injury suffered during football season. Woodruff was the regional champ at 285 pounds, beating Valley Center’s Alex Charles 2-1. The Class 5A tournament starts Friday at Hartman Arena in Park City. “That’s awesome,” Means said of Woodruff’s win. “Nobody understands what that kid’s been through over the last three months. He’s tried to practice. He could. He had to go to rehab. He’s had very little live wrestling, just doing some drilling and rolling around. “He can usually go 30, 40 minutes at a time and he has to rest. It’s phenomenal.” It was a tough road for Woodruff, but he was with the team at all the practices, all the duals, all the tournaments. “That was my focus, to stay involved,” Woodruff said. “I worked out every night, worked out with the team as much as I could. I just tried to get my conditioning back. My teammates depend on me. They want me there to support them. It helps them.” Goddard qualified 11 for the 5A tournament and had five champions. In addition to Woodruff and Frame, Dakota Leach won at 106, Lincoln Lemon at 145 and Manny Capps at 170. Ark City won the team title,

“I’m worried about my 120-pounder,” Ark City coach Greg Buckbee said. “… We’ll have to wait and see.” Despite the individual wins and the team win — Buckbee was also named regional coach of the year and Watters

the regional wrestler of the year – Buckbee wasn’t pleased with his team’s showing. “I don’t think it’s our best performance,” said Buckbee, whose team is ranked first in 5A. “We were flat. We didn’t wrestle aggressive. We didn’t do the things we’ve done all year. “… We came in a little cocky, thinking they’re going to lay down and die. But we’ve got a bull’s-eye on us and I’ve told them that all year.” Valley Center coach Brian Shelton was thrilled with his team’s showing, which included wins at 182 (Luke Weldon), 195 (Chad Blair) and 220 (Garrett Foster). The Hornets qualified 11. “If you take double-digit (wrestlers), you should be happy. We have got ourselves back to where we’re competing with the big boys,” Shelton said.

Andale rolls to regional title BY PAIGE FEIKERT Eagle correspondent

MULVANE — In a battle with Mulvane’s Kolby Fennewald for the 160-pound championship at Saturday’s Class 4A regional, once Andale’s Colton Duhr got ahead he knew he was in for an even bigger fight. “I just tried to get ahead, tried to ride it out, that’s the main thing,” Duhr said. “He was tough to keep down.” But Duhr held on for a 4-1 victory, and top-ranked Andale took the team title. Augusta rallied for second place. The Orioles were down four points to Mulvane, as the tournament transitioned into the final round. But a pin by Augusta freshman Jake Goldenstein in the 106-pound finalgave his team six points, enough to move into second. “We just kind of got on a roll and things went well,”


Augusta coach Brandon Terry said.“Our kids really performed well. We won a lot of swing matches, a lot of little matches that could have went either way this weekend … some of them even in the quarters to allow some of our kids a chance to even put them in the right place in the bracket.” The wrestlers that qualified from the regional tournament will go on to compete in the state tournament next week. “We’re ranked number one right now, we’ve got some dominant kids,” Andale’s coach Brad Lies said. “We were just lucky to get eight guys in, that’s going to help us next week with having enough guys in there to compete for us.” Duhr will compete in the state tournament for his fourth time, joined by junior teammate Levi Eck, with his third appearance at state after taking the 170-pound state title. Last year, Duhr and Eck both finished second in their respective weight classes.

“They’ve got a good shot at both making the finals. They were both there last year, both runners up last year. They’ve put in a lot of time and just worked hard in the brackets to get on top of the podium again this year,” Lies said. “It’s anybody’s tournament. It’s a new season up there.” Team – 1.

Coach says recruit making progress

Marc Browning/Eagle correspondent

Wichita’s Brian Cushing, right, steals the ball from Rochester’s Jeremy Ortiz on Saturday night in Park City.

WINGS From Page 1D Hollimon said. “Game of inches — inches that didn’t go our way tonight. It’s disappointing.” The Wings scored three points in their previous game, a road loss to Milwaukee, and it appeared early that their offense would suffer through a similar sixty minutes. Rochester led 8-0 less than seven minutes into the second quarter. The Wings had opportunities, but many of their shots were getting blocked before they reached the goal. Rochester blocked 14 shots, three fewer than Wichita got toward the net. "Their defense was good, their goalkeeper (Patrick Hannigan) was good," Hollimon said. "He made some very, very good saves. (The difference was) our inability to attack the goal for second chances. We’ve got to get better at looking to get second chances." Jamie Harding scored for the Wings with about five minutes to go in the second quarter. But the goal was answered quickly, another ongoing problem this season, and Rochester regained its eight-point advantage. The Wings weren’t deterred, scoring before halftime to take a manageable 10-4 deficit into the break. “At some point, having to keep coming back isn’t going to be good enough,” Hollimon said. “I wouldn’t say we’ve relied on it, but it’s become too much of what our game has been about,

THUNDER From Page 1D er, and all of them weigh at least 215 pounds. If Wichita’s collective braun ended there, it would be a daunting task for opponents to equal. But the Thunder gets bruising play from nearly every player on the roster. Flath doesn’t fit into the 6-4-and-above group, but he hits frequently. Dustin Donaghy and Alex Bourret count checking among their strengths, too. Wichita has 10 players with 30 or more penalty minutes and five more with 20 or more. The Thunder has developed a distinction as a team that is never afraid to engage. It is orchestrated to near-perfection by its leader. "(McClelland) has always had that reputation a coach," Flath said. "He’s always had a tough, physical team that also has a lot of skill and won’t back down physically, either." McClelland can adjust to personnel, but his preference is to find players who already fit the system. Or, in McClelland’s case, who look familiar. A four-time NHL Stanley Cup winner with Edmonton, McClelland was known as a player who could negatively impact the will of the opposing team. In 1987-88 with the Oilers, he accumulated 281 penalty minutes.

and you can’t have a season like that.” The Wings kept pulling closer, getting it to 13-10 in the fourth quarter. It created a similar situation to their last home game, when they needed a three-pointer late against Milwaukee to tie it. In that game, Wichita converted with an extra player before winning in sudden-death overtime. Saturday, Wichita got close, with shots hitting the most or missing the net when Hannigan was out of position. But the Wings couldn’t score, and in their efforts to take as many shots as possible, the deflection from one ended up with Doug Miller, who scored from the opposite three-point line with an open net. "That’s always the worry you have with sixth attacker," Hollimon said. "If they get one, it’s probably going to be a three-pointer because they’re shooting from a distance. You know it’s an issue, but it’s a calculated risk you have to take." Rochester........................ Wichita ............................

Dayton Dunbar forward Teddy Hawkins missed two games recently, suspended by the school for tardiness. Dunbar won both games, and Hawkins learned an important lesson. “At one point, he didn’t think we could win without him,” Dunbar coach Peter Pullen said. “Since then, we’ve seen a different attitude. He’s working harder in practice.” Hawkins, a 6-foot-7 senior, signed with Wichita State last fall. He is a key part of a fiveman class that will help WSU into the second phase of coach Gregg Marshall’s administration. Dunbar completed an unbeaten regular season at 20-0 with a 72-66 win over Meadowdale on Tuesday. Hawkins scored 20 points to help his team win its City League title. Pullen said Hawkins is averaging around 20 points over his past six or seven games, in part because he is scoring more in the lane. “We finally told him that is where his bread is going to be buttered,” Pullen said. “He found out that by going inside he got more points. He is taking advantage of his height.” Hawkins developed a jump hook that is accurate in the lane, Pullen said. He can also catch the ball and quickly face the basket before driving left or right to score. “He is playing well,” Pullen

very well the second and third rounds,” Blake said. “Getting over that hump in the first round of this tournament prompted him to a top-five finish.” Different game — Most tennis players come to WSU thinking their sport is about individuals. It is the upperclassmen’s job to teach them it is a team game in college. Shocker captain David Cavalcanti is the team’s lone senior. He has four freshmen to educate. “When you come here, every match is important and they need to realize that if their teammate is losing, they are losing as well,” he said. “That’s the hardest part.” Cavalcanti and Matheus Pereira are backing up a strong fall season with a good start this spring. They are ranked No. 31 nationally in the Intercollegiate Tennis Association doubles rankings. All in the name — The Missouri Valley Conference named its baseball Coach of the Year award after former Southern Illinois coach Dan Callahan. Callahan coached the Salukis for 16 seasons for he died of cancer in November 2010. Check Paul Suellentrop’s Shocker blog at Reach him at 316-269-6760 or

Marshall Mr. 300 Shocker coach Gregg Marshall enjoyed his 300th win for many reasons, including the group of

"I think he definitely recruits guys that won’t back down," Flath said. "He looks for those kind of guys because that was kind of his style back in the day. A lot of coaches, their coaching style reflects their playing style." A physical game isn’t always necessary, and it’s never easy. The Thunder has proven it can adapt on the fly and beat teams in several ways. But physicality is proving to be Wichita’s specialty, and it comes with an attitude that has injected itself into all of the Thunder’s players. "We have big guys," goalie Adam Russo said. "That’s our game. If we play physical all night long, as long as we play that physical game, no one can hold onto us. We have guys that can bang guys all night long and throw them off their game."

ering the circumstances. A week ago, the Shockers flew to San Antonio, disembarked and went directly to their practice round. While they practiced, somebody drove off with their van. That left the players with the clothes on their back, clubs and not much else. Books, wallets, computers, suitcases were stolen.

70 or more friends and family at the game. “I had people from every phase of my life, not just Winthrop and Wichita State,” he said. “We had people that supported me from grammar school on up. My uncle said ‘I’m glad you finally made something out of that basketball, because you used to wear me out rebounding for you.’” Marshall, born in Greenwood, S.C., coached nine season at Winthrop, located about 50 miles from Davidson. He went 194-83 there and is 106-59 in five seasons at WSU. Marshall’s lone regret was that Lynn, his wife, and children Kellen and Maggie had obligations in Wichita. “Lynn is a trooper for taking care of that,” he said.

Ragland runs it up WSU guard Joe Ragland grabbed the spotlight again in a big game. He scored 30 points, one off his career high against then-No. 18 UNLV. A week ago, he dented then-No. 17 Creighton for 24 points and six assists. “It feels great, but a lot of my teammates demand the attention that (helps me get open),” Ragland said. “I worked on my game

enough to make the defense pay every time I’m wide open and I had a lot of wide-open opportunities.” Ragland scored those 30 points on 11-of-14 shooting, 3 of 4 from three-point range. “Unbelievable,” Marshall said. “You talk about efficiency.” In those three wins, Ragland is 29 of 38 from the field, 13 of 17 from three-point range and 14 of 15 from the foul line with 10 assists and two turnovers.

Take a look WSU assistant coach Greg Heiar took advantage of the trip to watch North Rowan (N.C.) guard Oshon West score 20 point in Friday’s 62-60 win over South Davidson in his conference tournament title game in Biscoe, N.C. West, a 6-foot-3 junior, returned the favor on Saturday, driving 90 minutes from Spencer, N.C., to watch the Shockers. He wants to visit WSU later this spring. “I like the way they play,” West said. “I like the way they run.” West said he is also considering Ohio, Charlotte, North CarolinaGreensboro, North CarolinaWilmington and LSU.

WSU From Page 1D can make them take the ball out of the net, that’s the first way to stop their transition.” Neither team could string together defensive stops in the first 25 minutes. When the Shockers did, they pulled away. WSU’s surge started when Carl Hall and Stutz surrounded Davidson’s De’ Mon Brooks and forced an awkward shot. That gave the Shockers the signal to run. Murry found David Kyles for a layup. Then Hall contested a jumper by Brooks and WSU turned that miss into a layup by Demetric Williams for a 60-51 lead. “Shooting 80 percent is not easy to overcome,” Davidson coach Bob McKillop said. “There was a six-minutes stretch in which we took some premature shots. Those several possessions allowed them to get in the open court and get some easy baskets.” On it went with the Shocker jets blowing by the Wildcats. Murry got a layup after a missed three for a 66-54 lead. Ragland drove to the rim untouched for a layup on a set play. He did it again, late in the shot clock, for a 77-61 lead to cap a streak of 10 scores on 10 possessions. “When these guys get revved up, it’s some beautiful basketball to watch,” Marshall said. “All of a sudden, that

out of the offense with aggressive double teams and attacked him on defense with Cohen making threes. The Shockers adjusted in the second half. They kept the Wildcats out of the lane. Foul trouble benched Cohen for most of the half, even though he scored 25 points in 19 minutes. In the game’s final 15 minutes, the Shockers used their experience and quickness to disrupt almost everything Davidson does. “We just wanted to make them feel us a little more and put some pressure on them,” Ragland said. WSU expanded its lead to 84-61 on Ragland’s jumper with 4:49 remaining. “We were scoring the ball at a great pace,” Murry said. “Once we got those stops, we were in good hands.” Cohen kept his team in the game early. The Wildcats trailed 8-2 when he converted a three-point play. He made a long three over Stutz to tie the game. Cohen scored Davidson’s first 12 points, one behind WSU. The Shockers took a 34-29 lead on Carl Halls three-point play with 4:06 remaining. After a Davidson miss, Stutz charged, trying to navigate through a double team. Threes by Chris Czerapowicz and Nik Cochran gave Davidson a 35-34 lead. Ragland led WSU with 12 points in the first half, 10 of them coming in the final eight minutes.Cochran scored 13 for Davidson, six coming at the foul line.



Missouri holds off Texas A&M Defense sparks before A&M started its last run. Texas A&M used a 6-0 spurt early in the second half to whittle Missouri’s lead to 34-32 with about 16 minutes remaining. Missouri’s offense went cold in that span and the Tigers went almost 3 scoreless minutes.

Associated Press

Missouri has so many options on offense that it isn’t surprising when different players step up to help the Tigers keep winning. Kim English scored 21 points and Michael Dixon added 15 on a day where Ricardo Ratliffe was held to just four points, leading lead No. 3 Missouri to a 71-62 win over Texas A&M on Saturday at College Station, Texas. “Our offense is equal opportunity,” English said. “That’s the way coach (Frank) Haith drew it up. The go-to guy is the open man and fortunately they just made shots.” It was Missouri’s 12th Big 12 win which ties a school record for most in a season. Texas A&M cut the lead to five points on a 3-pointer by Elston Turner with 1:22 remaining. A turnover by Phil Pressey on the next play gave A&M the ball back. David Loubeau had a chance to get A&M within three points, but he was called for an offensive foul when he knocked Steve Moore to the ground going up for the shot. “Steve is really good at moving his feet and getting in position to make those plays,” Haith said. Texas A&M coach Billy Kennedy seemed to think that it should have been a block on Moore instead of an offensive foul. “I didn’t know David could

Khris Middleton, in his third game back after missing five straight with a knee injury, had 15 points to lead A&M (13-13, 4-10). Missouri’s victory breaks a five-game losing streak for the Tigers in College Station, a place where they hadn’t won since

2001. The Tigers had lost eight straight overall to A&M before sweeping the series this season. Michael Dixon added 15 points for Missouri and Denmon had 14. The Aggies slowed Ratliffe, who entered the game averaging 14 points. The Aggies, who have lost five of their last six games, were playing without injured point guard Dash Harris for the seventh straight game. “They’ve got to get all their parts back,” Haith said of the Aggies. “Right now they don’t have Dash back and I think that hurts this team a great deal.” The Tigers led by 13 points with 7 1 2 minutes left before a 12-7 run by A&M cut it to 63-55 with less than 4 minutes remaining.

Henriquez coming back It’s safe to assume Jordan Henriquez will remain in the starting lineup. The junior forward, who has been struggling, came through with 25 big minutes against Baylor. He had nine points, seven rebounds and three blocks to tie Manny Dies’ K-State record with 121 career blocks. What he did best was come through with key plays in the second half. He made a driving layup against Perry Jones in the final minutes to foul him out, then made the free throw. He finished a pass from Angel Rodriguez to give K-State the final lead, and got an important rebound and blocked Quincy Acy on Baylor’s final possession. “I’m just trying to do everything I can to help my team win,” said Henriquez, who has started backto-back games. “From the jump ball, it was all about intensity and matching intensity.” Martin likes what he saw. “If he keeps playing that way, he is going to find himself making a tremendous positive impact for our team down the stretch,” Martin said.

WILDCATS From Page 1D him, ‘I needed to hear that,’ especially from him, because I’m playing for him. He’s my coach.” Sitting at his right shoulder, Martin smiled. “He was great,” Martin said. “He battled and battled and battled.” Baylor coach Scott Drew noticed. “When we went up there he wasn’t really involved,” Drew said, referring to a 75-73 win at Bramlage Coliseum last month. “He finished today with 15, six and four steals, and I thought really played a good game on the road for them and did a tremendous job.” K-State (18-8, 7-7 Big 12) needed him. Coming into the weekend, the Wildcats were living on the NCAA Tournament bubble with a conference record below .500. A road win over a top 10 team will greatly increase their chances of reaching a third straight NCAA Tournament. But this victory meant more than that. It also gave the Wildcats confidence they can close out the season strong and enter March Madness with a good seed. “I’m not too worried about that now,” K-State’s Rodney McGruder said. “I’m just trying to finish out the season out the right way, and we’ll see where our bid is in the NCAA Tournament after that.” K-State took leads against Iowa State, Texas and Kansas in the past three weeks, but

Baylor’s Perry Jones defends against Kansas State’s Angel Rodriguez during the second half of Saturday’s game. lost all three. It developed a bad habit of letting games slip away late. Maybe beating Baylor can serve as a breakthrough moment of sorts. “It always feels good to win, especially when we’ve lost a couple games,” Rodriguez said. “Coming into their building and winning this game after all the losses we’ve had feels great.” The Wildcats had to work for it. Baylor jumped out to a 20-11 midway through the first half, and probably should have been up by more. Baylor’s sloppy play on offense led to 18 turnovers and an inability to pull away. But when K-State had its opening, it took advantage. Behind McGruder, who scored 15 points, Jamar Samuels, Jordan Henriquez and Rodriguez, the Wildcats closed the first half on a nice run and took a 32-28 lead on a deep three-pointer by Samuels at the buzzer. Behind Jackson, who scored nine points and dished out

Solid defense Rodriguez contributed quite a bit on offense, but he was most proud of his defense. The Wildcats held the Bears to 56 points and 20 baskets on 52 attempts. They also committed 18 turnovers. Henriquez and Samuels had three blocks and K-State had 10 steals. “What I was proudest by, even though we missed a lot of shots there, our defense was rock solid,” Martin said.

Worth noting Thomas Gipson played in front of a familiar crowd. The Cedar Hill, Texas native had 12 family members and friends in the stands watching him gather four points and three rebounds.… as he scored four points and grabbed three rebounds.… Jones fouled out in 22 minutes. Acy was also in foul trouble and ended with four.… K-State now has two signature wins to point to. It also defeated Missouri in the second conference game. — Kellis Robinett

seven assists, and Quincy Acy, who scored 14 points, Baylor quickly took a three-point lead in the second half. It wasn’t going to let K-State pull away. Even when the Wildcats took a 55-51 lead with 3:39 remaining on a three-pointer from McGruder, Baylor fought back even after top big man Perry Jones fouled out. The Bears pulled ahead 56-55 on a three from Jackson with 2:06 to go. But Rodriguez made sure K-State would win by finding Henriquez with a lob pass that he turned into a dunk with 1:55 remaining. He helped the Wildcats take the final lead, and then defended Jackson well enough that Baylor couldn’t score in the final moments. The Bears had several cracks at a go-ahead basket, including an off-balance shot near the basket from Quincy Miller with two seconds remaining, following a traveling call against Rodriguez that negated a breakaway layup with 13 seconds left. Henriquez deflected Miller’s shot and the game ended with the ball bouncing harmlessly out of bounds. Just like that, K-State put the finishing touches on a badly needed win. It was especially satisfying to Rodriguez. Martin put his trust in him, and he came through. “He tried his heart out,” Martin said. “He has grown as a kid. He has grown as a player.” Check Kellis Robinett’s K-Stated blog at Reach him at

Kansas State rode its defense to a 65-45 women’s basketball victory over Texas on Saturday night in Manhattan. The Wildcats held the Longhorns to 31.5 percent shooting and forced 18 turnovers. Ashia Woods, a freshman from Collegiate, blocked a shot and had three of K-State’s nine steals. Tasha Dickey K-State’s attack with 18 points. Brittany Chambers had 15 points and nine rebounds, Jalana Childs scored 14 points and Mariah White had eight assists and 10 rebounds. The Wildcats used a 15-2 run to start the second half to build a 46-26 lead. The Longhorns countered with a 9-0 run to cut K-State’s lead to 11, but that was the closest Texas got. The win left K-State (17-9. 8-6 Big 12) solidly in fourth place in the Big 12 standings.

Focus A power surge caused a video board malfunction and prevented the ear-splitting pregame historical montage that precedes the KU player introduction. The problem was quickly fixed and the Jayhawks came on to the floor in the second half to the

production. But the board was fixed in time to run a clever production comparing Thomas Robinson to actor John Travolta. The clip even drew a smile from Robinson, but not from Coach Bill Self. “I knew we were in trouble when I saw our players laughing and giggling over that,” Self said. “We’re not very mature at all.” ■ Jordan Juenemann knocked down his first three-pointer of the season on his way to a careerbest seven points. Juenemann, a senior from Hays, made all three of his field goals. ■ The victory was the 1,000th in conference play for KU, dating back to its inaugural season in the Missouri Valley Intercollegiate Athletic Association in 1908. Blair Kerkhoff

KU From Page 1D Kansas caught its breath and played well down the stretch. The Jayhawks ran off 14 straight points. Jeff Withey blocked Jordan Tolbert shots on successive possessions. Tyshawn Taylor delivered a lob pass that led to Thomas Robinson’s slam that rattled the backboard and energy returned to Allen Fieldhouse. One thing for sure, Tech coach Billy Gillispie wasn’t headed back to Lubbock with any timeouts. He drained his full allotment of five in the second half, calling them after Red Raiders’ baskets. But nothing could slow Kansas, even the reserves, who hadn’t delivered much this season. That changed Saturday. Teahan had 11 and Kevin Young added 10. Even Jordan Juenemann, a senior who was put on scholarship for the second semester, had seven points by making all three of his shots. “They stepped up and played really well,” Kansas guard Travis Releford said. “They met the challenge.” No starter played more than 28 minutes. It’s the first time in Big 12 play that all of the starters logged fewer than 30 minutes. Self was especially eager to give Taylor rest, and his starting point guard played 27 minutes with primary backup Naadir Tharpe logging 12 minutes. The idea going forward is to avoid loading Taylor with 37 or 38 minutes. He’s broken down in the final few minutes of games when he plays that much, which has resulted in missed free throws and turnovers. Resting Taylor for about three minutes each half is the idea, and Tharpe’s line on Saturday was encouraging:

Kansas center Jeff Withey pulls in a rebound against Texas Tech forward Jordan Tolbert during the first half of Saturday’s game in Lawrence. He made his only three-point attempt, was credited with an assist, two steals and no turnovers. Withey, the team’s hottest player, chipped in nine points, eight rebounds and four blocked shots. He altered a handful more. In the first half, Tech had seven field goals, and four came from beyond the arc “It was very tough to score inside,” Tolbert said. For the Jayhawks, it’s on to the stretch that will define its season. The Aggies played Kansas tough in Lawrence three weeks ago. Oklahoma State beat Missouri in Stillwater, and the Tigers? The build-up for the final game as conference opponents will be epic. “We know it’s going to be hard,” Self said. “We have to play a little better than what we’ve been playing, but if

you told me before the season that we would be 12-2 in the league with four games left I probably would have sold out for that.”

Now you know.

2012 GREAT OUTDOORS PHOTO CONTEST WINNERS Images of wildlife in action, wildlife at rest and dramatic views of scenery took top honors in the Wichita Eagle’s 11th annual Great Outdoors Photo Contest. From more than 350 entries, Eagle photog-

raphers narrowed the field to 15 adult finalists and five youth finalists. The public voted for the winners at and at the Kansas Sports, Boat and Travel Show.



Steve Boleski traveled to Alaska in November to photograph "The Challenge."


Mayce Sharon grabbed her camera when a partially albino barred owl landed on a neighbor's fence a few weeks ago in Overland Park.

Robert Herrington almost couldn't believe his fortune when this male painted bunting landed on an old fence near Derby. He calls the photo "Painted Bunting Song."


Jacob Penner isn't sure if this diamondback water snake swallowed this bullhead, but knew the snake was in for some "Heavy Lifting."



"Going to the Sun" was Kendall Gaeddert's favorite from a great day he had at Glacier National Park last summer.

Chad Phillips thought the combination of the great sunset and sunflowers in "Golden Road" was wonderfully symbolic of Kansas.

Ask Marilyn By Marilyn vos Savant Are there whirlpools in the ocean? If so, are they a threat to ships? —Gerald Brown, Shalimar, Fla.

Whirlpools do exist, both on the surface of the water and submerged. Most aren’t powerful enough to capsize a sizable vessel, but they can pose a threat to inexperienced boaters. Many have a vortex that pulls downward. One example is Japan’s Naruto whirlpool, which draws daily crowds of onlookers. Another, near Norway, is the Saltstraumen Maelstrom, said to be the world’s strongest. Not far away is the Moskstraumen, made infamous by Edgar Allan Poe and Jules Verne. The whirlpool Garofalo (which probably inspired the mythical Charybdis) is located in the waters between Sicily and mainland Italy. We Americans have one of our own, Old Sow, between Maine and New Brunswick. ®

A special note about children and pets: The NICOTROL Inhaler can cause serious illness or be fatal in children and pets— even in very small amounts. If a child chews on or swallows new or used NICOTROL Inhaler cartridges, immediately call a doctor or call your regional poison center. The specific effects of the NICOTROL Inhaler treatment on fetal development and nursing infants are unknown. Therefore, pregnant and nursing smokers should be encouraged to attempt cessation using educational and behavioral interventions before using pharmacological approaches. You are likely to experience mild irritation of the mouth or throat, or cough when you first use the NICOTROL Inhaler. In clinical trials, the frequency of mouth or throat irritation, or coughing declined with continued use. The most common nicotine-related side effect was upset stomach. Other nicotine-related side effects were nausea, diarrhea, and hiccup. Smoking-related side effects included chest discomfort, bronchitis, and high blood pressure. It is important to tell your doctor about any other medications you may be taking because they may need dosage adjustment. You are encouraged to report negative side effects of prescription drugs to the FDA. Visit, or call 1-800-FDA-1088.

   Keep out of reach of children and pets. The NICOTROL Inhaler can cause serious illness in children and petsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;even in very small amounts. If a child chews on or swallows NICOTROL Inhaler cartridges, call a doctor or Poison Control Center. NICOTROL Inhaler may cause side effects. Many people experience mild irritation of the mouth or throat and cough when they ďŹ rst use the NICOTROL Inhaler. Most people get used to these effects in a short time. Stomach upset may also occur.

Cynthia Cidre, the writer and executive producer for nouveau Dallas, notes that everything old is new again. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The show deals with land, lust, betrayal, and sibling rivalryâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;themes that have been in literature since Greek drama,â&#x20AC;? she says. That may be, but Gray relishes the changes time has brought. During the first goround, â&#x20AC;&#x153;the men would do horrible things, and the women would react,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now Sue Ellen is powerful and richer than J. R.

Revive Your New Year’s Resolutions Follow these tips for successful change By Jennifer Ackerman • Illustration by Zohar Lazar


Accept the busy, stressed person you are today. Accord-

ing to McGonigal, people often fail to make change because they imagine their future selves with Herculean powers of self-control. “Don’t wait for the efficient person who resists all temptation to show up. Take action now and understand that you’re human and you’ll have setbacks,” she says.


Pick your battles.

Studies suggest that glucose in the bloodstream fuels willpower; when levels are low, it’s harder to stay the course. Likewise, engaging in acts of self-control all day depletes glucose. So prioritize and try to limit the number of times you need to exert your willpower each day.



f you’re like millions of americans, you woke up on jan. 1

and vowed to turn over a new leaf—run three miles a day, stop smoking, lose a pound a week, save $200 a month, whatever. You vividly imagined a better you. And for a while it seemed to work. But then, come late January or early February, you stopped jogging. You snuck a cigarette. You went on a QVC spending spree. In other words, you slipped back into your old habits. It doesn’t have to be that way. Willpower is not the brute strength to resist temptation, but “the ability to do what you really want to do when part of you really doesn’t want to do it,” says Kelly McGonigal, a health psychologist at Stanford University and the author of The Willpower Instinct. “It’s remembering what you really want, your bigger goals, in the face of your immediate desires.” And it’s a skill you can strengthen. Science may not yet have devised a surefire formula for keeping every resolution, but it has lately revealed some tips to help all of us make real and lasting change.

Rethink your environment.

“When your surroundings stay the same, so do your ingrained habits,” says Miriam Nelson, director of the John Hancock Center on Physical Activity, Nutrition, and Obesity Prevention at Tufts University. “But when you tweak your environment to make healthy choices easy, your habits automatically change.” Trying to lose weight? Get rid of the junk food and store bowls of cut-up veggies in the fridge. Looking to build muscle? Keep dumbbells in the TV room and do bicep curls while you watch.


Start small.

“Many people are too ambitious in their goals,” says Nelson. Instead of vowing to get fit, try building a 10-minute walk into your day. “If you stick with that goal for a week, congratulate yourself and up the ante the following week.”

Anticipate challenges—the plate of cookies at the office, the fatigue that makes you want to skip the gym—and imagine how you’ll overcome them.


Envision how you’ll achieve your goal. Visualization—

the way an Olympic athlete imagines the perfect pole vault or high dive—boosts your odds of success. A 2011 study from McGill University in Montreal found that among people who set a goal of eating more fruit, those who pictured when, where, and how they would buy, prepare, and eat it consumed twice as much as those who didn’t. By the same token, anticipate challenges— the plate of cookies at the office, the end-of-day fatigue that makes you want to skip the gym— and imagine how you’ll overcome them.

Above all, be patient.

The good news: Over time, your resolution will start to require less effort. A recent study by researchers at University College London found that participants took, on average, 66 days to form a new habit, whether it was eating fruit at lunch or running 15 minutes a day (the range was 18 to 254 days, depending on the degree of difficulty). Even better: A single setback in no way predicted failure. “It’s how you recover from a setback that counts,” says McGonigal. “If you splurge or miss a day, just get right back on track.” Jennifer Ackerman is the coauthor of The Social Network Diet: Change Yourself, Change the World.

This is What REAL MONEY Looks Like If you believe in the yen, the euro, and the dollar... stop reading. Because this is a story about the silver coin EVERYBODY wants.


his is not an ad. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a warning. You read the headlines. You know that troubled economic times put global currency on a rollercoaster ride. Governments panic and they print paper. You can buy your ticket and buckle up. Or you can opt out of the Wall Street amusement park and follow those who have found a smarter way to build long-term value with high-grade collectible silver. And right now, those people are lining up for the first release of 2012 U.S. Mint Silver Eagles. Today, you can graduate to the front of that line. Buy now and you can own these brilliant uncirculated Silver Dollars for only $39.95!

Not Even the U.S. Mint Can Help You Now In 2012, global demand for silver will surpass supply. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why banks around the world are buying millions of ounces, snatching up silver faster than mining companies can pull it out of the ground. That voracious appetite for silver guarantees fierce competition for the brand new 2012 U.S. Silver Eagles. Millions of collectors, investors and dealers from Europe, China and India are ready to strike.

By Connie Schultz

n my early 30s, i copied

a George Orwell quotation and tucked it into my wallet: “At age 50, everyone has the face he deserves.” A promise? Or a warning? That depended on how I lived my life. Orwell was right. Even in the faces of strangers, you can tell who has spent more time laughing than frowning, who rolled with life’s tumbles and who never recovered. Like maps that are repeatedly redrawn, our faces track the march of time. Line up photos of the same face at different ages and a life story unfolds like a graphic novel. This is my story in five faces.

Age 12 I’m in seventh grade, and I want to be anybody else. Specifically, I want to be Aretha Franklin. I’m convinced a Toni home permanent and a neighbor’s artistry will transform me into Ashtabula’s Queen of Soul. She cuts my long, straight hair and wraps what’s left around small pink curlers. She squirts the smelly chemicals all over my head. My scalp burns for what feels like 12 hours. I think I look amazing. Not Mom. She takes one look at me and collapses on the sofa, fanning herself with her apron. The next week, I line up for my school portrait wearing my new Afro and pointy collars as big as window shades. Before the flash goes off, my gym teacher shakes her head and says, “Girl, does your mother know what you did to your hair?” Age 21 I am an asthmatic, and a prescription drug makes my face puff out. I

eyes. I couldn’t care less. I’m starring in Act II of my own life. I’m a newspaper columnist, a woman paid to give her opinion. After a decade as a single mother, I’ve fallen in love, too, with a man who has the nerve to push back on independent me. I insist I don’t need him to wait on me—ever. He sits me down in his kitchen and says, “You are not giving up your right to vote or to own property if you let me make you a cup of coffee.” For the first time in 45 years, I am speechless. I want to be younger but only because my heart aches with a single truth: When you meet the love of your life in middle age, the odds are you won’t celebrate a golden wedding anniversary together.

My Story in Five Faces

No, it never launched a thousand ships or made it onto Mount Rushmore, but this face has seen (and laughed) a lot

Age 12

Age 21

Age 45

am so self-conscious that if someone points a camera at me, I pucker up and cross my eyes. I want to be less dependent on others’ opinions of me. I’m failing miserably. A fellow staffer on our college newspaper wears a leg brace and a special shoe with a five-inch platform. He walks with a limp, and he hates the goofy pictures of me. I don’t know this until he surreptitiously shoots this photo and presents it to me as a gift. “If I looked like you,” he says, softly, “I’d smile all the time.” Then he walks away. Thirty-three years later, this photo still hangs in my home office as a reminder to get over myself.

Age 37

Age 53

Age 37 After 15 years of writing freelance stories at my kitchen table, I get my first newspaper job. Weeks later, I’m a newly single mother living with my two kids in an apartment half the size of the house we’d called home. I want to be fearless, but I am scared to death. See the fear in my eyes? I am also stronger than I know. Like so many women, I have to learn, one crazy day at a time, that if I act brave, the courage will come. And it does. Age 45 Crinkles fan out from both of my

Age 53 I’m three years past Orwell’s deadline. The worry lines have won the territory between my brows. Starbursts punctuate my eyes. That’s what a lifetime of grinning brings. There are worse fates. I’ve not succumbed to any tinkering. No surgery or needles for me. This is not to judge other women. I’m just not big on volunteering for pain. My husband is taking this picture, which explains my smile. He still makes my coffee. “Honey,” I say to him over a recent game of Scrabble. “When I’m old, will you still love me?” He doesn’t even look up. “Honey,” he says. “You’re already old. And I still love you.” We laugh like crazy, and I don’t want to be anybody but me. February 19, 2012 • 19
