WSU professor’s research looks at distracted driving


Security at airport is good, worker says BY MOLLY MCMILLIN The Wichita Eagle

Rickey Welch arrived at his job as a sheet metal technician at Yingling Aviation on Friday at his usual time, about 4:20 a.m. But when he got inside, he was told the hangar bay where he worked was closed for security reasons. The line service person who told him didn’t know why. “Maybe somebody important is coming in,” Welch said he first speculated. Pilots of general aviation aircraft from around the country patronize Yingling, located at Wichita Mid-Continent Airport. It wasn’t until later that he learned that a Hawker Beechcraft Services avionics technician who worked next door, Terry Lee Loewen, had been charged in a planned suicide bombing plot as he attempted to Please see AIRPORT, Page 17A Mike Hutmacher/The Wichita Eagle

ibo He is a professor of psychology. He currently spends 16 hours a day studying how we’ve recently begun trying to accidentally kill ourselves and others. Just a few years ago, drunken driving was the one big killer on our roads. Now we have two. Drunken driving still kills 30 people a day. But hundreds of thousands of us began talking on cellphones while driving just a few years back. Then more people did it – and added texting while driving. Then even more people

made calls, texted – and began “webbing while driving.” With only one hand on the wheel, they swipe their thumb on the screen of their smartphone, log onto the Internet and chat on Facebook, tweet on Twitter, watch videos and look at photographs. Suddenly, distracted driving kills nine people a day. Dr. He thinks this will get worse. Distracted driving last year killed 3,328 people and injured 421,000, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Four years ago, 13 percent of all drivers in a survey told State Farm that they drove Please see DRIVING, Page 16A

Ex-wife of bomb suspect: That’s not the man I knew BY MOLLY MCMILLIN The Wichita Eagle

In the 10 years Terry Lee Loewen was married to his now ex-wife, Sarah, he was a peaceful, easygoing, quiet man. Loewen, a native Wichitan and graduate of Heights High School, had loving parents and a normal childhood, Sarah Loewen said. “Terry didn’t like confrontation; he was never one to start a fight,” she said. “He was so mellow.” He was a good father to their son, Damien, 24, she said. Terry Loewen has not been part of her life for a long time, Loewen said. Today, she’s angry for what he’s done and what he’s putting their son through.

Steve Carell had to lower his expectations for â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Anchorman 2â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Steve Carell is determined to lower expectations for â&#x20AC;&#x153;Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s SO stupid. I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe how stupid it is.â&#x20AC;? And in a world of stupid and a cast of 1970s-era TV news buffoons, Steveâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s character, the ditzy, naive TV weatherman Brick Tamland, stands out. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Unrelentingly dumb,â&#x20AC;? Carell says. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s being kind. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was the easiest movie ever, because I got to just stand there and look dumb. For two months. I rarely had to say anything.

But director and longtime Will Ferrell writing partner Adam McKay would stand off camera, and at the end of a take would say â&#x20AC;&#x153;Give me something extra.

Sheriff: Colo. gunman sought to hurt more BY DAN ELLIOTT AND P. SOLOMON BANDA Associated Press

ination rounds, the league said.

Cultivated speech skills CENTENNIAL, Colo. — A teenager who wounded a fellow student before killing himself at a suburban Denver high school entered the building with a shotgun, a machete, three Molotov cocktails and ammunition strapped to his body, likely intending to track down a librarian who had disciplined him, authorities said Saturday. After firing a round down a hallway, Karl Pierson, 18, shot a fellow student who just happened to be sitting nearby with a friend as he headed toward the library. Claire Davis, 17, was shot in the head at point-blank range and remained hospitalized Saturday in critical condition. Pierson set off one of the devices but killed himself just one minute and 20 seconds after entering the building because he knew a sheriff’s deputy assigned to the school was closing in, Arapahoe County Sheriff Grayson Robinson said at a news conference. Pierson’s original target was believed to be a librarian who coached the school’s speech and debate team. The librarian, whose name was not released, had disciplined the teen in September for reasons that haven’t been disclosed. The librarian was able to escape the school unharmed, Robinson said. The sheriff also said Davis appeared to be a random target. Based on Pierson’s arsenal, Robinson believes the teen intended to hurt many others at the school just eight miles from Columbine High School, scene of a previous school shooting. “His evil intent was to harm multiple individuals,” Robinson said. Pierson legally purchased his shotgun at a local store a week before the shooting and bought the ammunition the day of the shooting. Anyone 18 or older is allowed to buy a shotgun in Colorado; those over 21 can legally buy a handgun. According to Robinson, Pierson fired another round down the hallway after wounding Davis. Pierson then entered the library, fired one shot and detonated one Molotov cocktail, which caused three bookshelves to catch fire. After that, he fired a fifth round, ran to a corner and shot himself. Robinson said investigators believe Pierson made some kind of threat in September, after the librarian disciplined him. “We are looking into that, to the degree that it was understood, and then what interactions or interventions took place,” the sheriff said. No other details on the threat were released. Students and a teacher described Pierson as a smart and sometimes goofy student who often talked about his beliefs during class, sometimes even debating his teachers. They said he was outspoken about his communistleaning political views. They also said he was an Eagle Scout who finished at the top of speech competitions. Pierson competed in extemporaneous speaking – in which students prepare short speeches on current events – in the National Forensic League’s national tournament in June in Birmingham, Ala. He didn’t advance to the elim-

“I think he (Pierson) really cultivated his speech and argument skills and really thought that was a big part of his identity,” said Steve Miles, an English teacher who taught Pierson as a freshman. Zach Runberg, 18, a fellow senior from Pierson’s English class, said the teen was funny and made intelligent jokes. “He would speak for himself,” Runberg said. “He would not be afraid to tell someone how he feels.” Pierson, whose parents were divorced, lived at least part of the time with his mother in a higher-end neighborhood in suburban Highlands Ranch. The home and others around it have threecar garages, and a country

club is nearby. The front door of the home was covered with plywood Saturday after authorities conducted a search overnight. Challon Winer, who lives across the street from Pierson’s home, said he often would see the teen mowing the lawn or shoveling snow from the driveway. “I noticed that he didn’t look extremely happy, but he was a teenager,” subject to the normal moods of that age group, Winer said. In recent days, the teen’s schedule appeared to change, and he left the house a little later than usual, Winer said. Winer said Pierson’s mother, Barbara Pierson, has worked with the Neighborhood Watch group and sometimes sent e-mails reminding residents about safety precautions. “She seemed aware of what was going on,” Winer

People gathered for a vigil for her Saturday night, while some students collected money to help cover her medical expenses.

6A THE WICHITA EAGLE ■ SUNDAY, DECEMBER 15, 2013 John Mayer performs at Intrust Bank Arena in front of 7,000 people during his “Born and Raised” World Tour on Dec. 1.

ARENA From Page 1A pop, rock and blues. His concert was crucial to the arena because it was a “baby step” to getting bigger pop acts, Boleski said. “If you want Justin Timberlake, you’re going to have to start somewhere,” he said. “It’s about supporting a John Mayer.” Boleski said the John Mayer show needed “a couple thousand more” people in the seats to be successful. Emily Russell, 23, benefited from the smaller-than-hopedfor crowd. “We got moved to a better seat,” she said. When she and her friend arrived at the arena for the concert, they found their section blocked off. Arena staff members directed them to a section closer to the stage. Russell was disappointed the concert didn’t sell out. “You have to get the higher numbers” to attract big acts, she said. “If he would have sold out, that would have been a good thing, but he didn’t sell out,” Russell said. The John Mayer show was the first concert Russell had attended at the arena. She also has been to some sporting events at the arena. She told The Eagle through the Public Insight Network that she would like to see more variety at the arena. She has been to Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City to see Boyz II Men, 98 Degrees and New Kids on the Block. She also has been to concerts at Hartman Arena, which is near the old Kansas Coliseum on North I-135. And she has attended the outdoor Warped Tour in Bonner Springs twice. “I was very excited that John Mayer came to Wichita. I enjoyed the concert and will for sure go again when he comes back to town,” she said in her response through the network. “Everyone I

talked to about the show really had a good time and was happy to see John Mayer in Wichita.” She said that show and the Elton John concert in the arena’s first year were the only ones she felt were worth attending. Russell planned to see the Wichita State University’s men’s basketball game against Tennessee on Saturday, and she plans to go to the Kansas State University game against Gonzaga.

Arena’s sellouts Boleski noted that the arena has held six sellout events this year: Winter Jam, a Christian music show; Taylor Swift; Blake Shelton; the Eagles; Luke Bryan; and an Oklahoma City Thunder basketball game. Three of those acts were country shows. George Strait’s April 4 concert at the arena is already sold out, he said. The arena also set attendance records at the venue this year for Cirque du Soleil, the Harlem Globetrotters and Disney on Ice. Boleski said he and arena staff members are always hustling to get acts to come to Wichita. “But at the end of the day, is the show going to be supported, and are they going to sell tickets?” he said. Ron Holt, assistant manager for the county who oversees culture and recreation, said he isn’t as concerned as Boleski is about how the John

WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE? The Eagle asked people through the Public Insight Network what they thought of concerts at Intrust Bank Arena and what musical acts they would most like to see there. Several people said anything but country or anybody except the acts that keep coming back. Acts mentioned included Eminem, Nelly, Lady Gaga and Bruno Mars. Those most commonly mentioned: Paul McCartney, Katy Perry, Rolling Stones, Santana and Earth, Wind and Fire. Here’s what a few people said: ■ Karen Jerman: “I marvel at the concerts they have at the (Stiefel Theatre) in Salina. I would have liked to see Jethro Tull here, Mumford & Sons, Stevie Nicks. There were numerous other concerts which have been touring I would pay to see. Not country, but mostly the ‘oldie’ tours.” ■ Loren Esslinger: “If the pricing was right, every event at the arena would be a sellout.” ■ Ronald Daray: “I will never buy a ticket for a country music act. If they refuse to bring in rock, blues, pop acts, I will continue to take my money to spend in Kansas City, including staying in nice boutique hotels and dining at their fine eating establishments.” ■ Ric Camargo: “No one has come that I haven’t seen already or I just don’t like them. All there is country music. Coun-

try music is fine, but come on all the time! All taxpayers contributed to the building of the arena, and the options of style of music provided is not culturally even.” ■ Colin Adams: “Variety is incredibly lacking in the concerts held at Intrust Bank Arena. There are numerous genres out there and just because those are the stereotypical ‘Kansas’ genres doesn’t mean they’re the only ones.”

France broadens surveillance BY SCOTT SAYARE New York Times

PARIS â&#x20AC;&#x201D; For all their indignation last summer, when the scope of the United Statesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; mass data collection began to be made public, the French are hardly innocents in the realm of electronic surveillance. Within days of the reports about the National Security Agencyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s activities, it was revealed that French intelligence services operate a similar system, with similarly minimal oversight. And last week, with little public debate, the legislature approved an electronic surveillance law that critics feared would markedly expand electronic surveillance of French residents and businesses. The provision, quietly passed as part of a routine military spending bill, defines the conditions under which intelligence agencies may gain access to or record telephone conversations, e-mails, Internet activity, personal location data and other electronic communications. The law provides for no judicial oversight and allows electronic surveillance for a broad range of purposes, including â&#x20AC;&#x153;national security,â&#x20AC;? the protection of Franceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;scientific and economic potentialâ&#x20AC;? and prevention of â&#x20AC;&#x153;terrorismâ&#x20AC;? or â&#x20AC;&#x153;criminality.â&#x20AC;? In an unusual alliance, Internet and corporate groups, human rights organizations and a small number of lawmakers have opposed the law as a threat to business or an encroachment on individual rights. The government argues that the law, which does not come into force until 2015, does little to expand intelligence powers. Rather, officials say, those powers have been in place for years, and the law creates rules where there had

been none, notably with regard to real-time location tracking. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If this article does effectively expand the existing regime to adapt it to the missions and reality of our intelligence services, it especially reinforces oversight as compared with the current situation,â&#x20AC;? Defense Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian told the Senate. This argument suggests, analysts say, that the government has either staked out rights to a vast new range of surveillance practices, or acknowledged that it has already been collecting far more data, under far less regulated circumstances, than people seem to have been aware of. Neither prospect is terribly comforting to the lawâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s opponents. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We feel that anything can be placed under the heading â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;national security,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;? said ClĂŠmence Bectarte, a lawyer for

the International Federation for Human Rights. The law, she said, expands the list of state administrations authorized to request electronic surveillance to include the Budget Ministry, for example.

Oversight is new The French intelligence agencies have little experience justifying their practices. Parliamentary oversight, for instance, did not begin until 2007. The Association des Services Internet Communautaires, an advocacy group whose members include AOL, eBay, Facebook, Google, Microsoft and several top French Internet companies, discovered the new legislation essentially by chance. The government denies any effort to shield the law from public scrutiny. The bill went through four votes in Parliament, noted one government official.

U.S. and Chinese navy ships nearly collide at sea BY JANE PERLEZ New York Times

BEIJING — In a sign of the increased tensions between the United States and China on the open seas, navy vessels from the two countries almost collided in the South China Sea when a Chinese ship cut across the bow of an American cruiser, a senior U.S. defense official said Saturday. An accident was averted when the missile-carrying cruiser Cowpens, traveling in international waters, maneuvered to avoid the Chinese vessel, the official said. At the time, the U.S. ship was observing China’s new aircraft carrier, which was also in the vicinity. The near collision, which occurred Dec. 5 but did not become public until Friday, was one more example of the growing rivalry between China, a rising maritime power, and the United States, the dominant naval power in the Pacific region since World War II. The episode at sea came as the Obama administration has chastised China for imposing an air defense identification zone in the East China Sea over is-

lands and airspace that are also claimed by Japan. In announcing the zone, the Chinese said they would require planes entering the area to file advance flight plans, a demand that the United States and Japan have both defied. The information office at the Chinese Ministry of National Defense did not immediately respond to a request for comment. The Cowpens was observing the Chinese carrier, the Liaoning, as it made its first voyage in the South China Sea from its home base in Qingdao, the headquarters of China’s North Sea Fleet, the defense official and U.S. Navy experts said. All of them spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the matter. The Chinese vessel cut across the bow of the U.S. ship at a distance of less than 200 yards, the defense official said. The vessel was similar to a U.S. tank landing ship and was accompanying the aircraft carrier. The tactic of the Chinese ship “was particularly aggressive” and “unhelpful in trying to increase cooperation between the two navies,” he said.

Analysts said the tense encounter underscored the dangers of the current situation in the area. “This illustrates the anxieties between the United States and China, and it is very troubling,”

said Lyle J. Goldstein, an associate professor at the China Maritime Studies Institute at the U.S. Naval War College in Rhode Island. “Neither side knows the other’s red lines.” U.S. officials said the Cow-

pens had been adhering to international guidelines. The Chinese ship accompanying the aircraft carrier began shouldering the U.S. cruiser and then crossed its bow, he said. After the U.S.

ship took the evasive maneuver, there was “bridge-tobridge” contact, in English, between the two ships, the official said. “It was tense but professional,” he said.

WHAT IS InjECTED InTO THE KnEE? Hyaluronic acid is similar to substances that occur naturally in your joint. The outside of the joint (joint capsule) is comprised of a sturdy fibrous tissue. The lining of the joint capsule contains synovial cells which secrete a thick, viscous synovial fluid. Hyaluronic acid contributes to the viscous nature of the joint fluid, nourishes the cartilage, helps eliminate waste products, lubricates the joint and acts as a shock absorber inside the joint. Hyaluronic acid is reduced or lost with those who suffer from osteoarthritis. Therefore, the easiest way to think of hyaluronic acid injections is that they help replace the joint’s natural fluid, which is otherwise lost in osteoarthritis. It is similar to changing the oil in your car. If your car were to run low on oil you would have some serious wear and tear on the moving parts. More oil

Do you take medications for knee pain? Do you have difficulty going up and down stairs due to knee pain?



Osteoarthritis, also known as degenerative joint disease, is the most common type of arthritis. In osteoarthritis, the surface layer of cartilage breaks down and wears away. This allows the bones under the cartilage to rub together resulting in pain, swelling, and loss of motion of the joint. Although in some people it progresses quickly, in most individuals joint damage develops gradually over years.

The exact cause of osteoarthritis is unknown. Factors that might cause it include the following:

Black Santa Claus spreads joy to kids Jahleel Logan, 3, poses with Santa, a.k.a. Langston Patterson, 77, at the Baldwin Hills Crenshaw Plaza in Los Angeles last week. Patterson has been playing Santa at the Plaza since 2004.


LOS ANGELES â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Dressed in a red Santa suit, white beard and rimless glasses, Langston Patterson sits on a velvet couch and waits for his adoring fans. For nearly a decade, Patterson has been the main attraction at Los Angelesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Baldwin Hills Crenshaw Plaza during Christmastime: a rare black Santa Claus in a sea of white ones. The mall, in the heart of Los Angeles, is one of the few in the country with a black Santa Claus. As visitors approached him on a recent afternoon, it was hard to tell who was more excited: the youngsters or the adults. The parents are the most loyal. They return with grandchildren, passing on a family tradition with a deep personal meaning. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need our kids to understand that good things happen in chocolate skin,â&#x20AC;? said Til Prince, 50, of Palmdale, watching her granddaughter, niece and her nieceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s son pose with Patterson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are often bombarded with the opposite. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not trying to exclude anybody but (instead) celebrate our chocolate skin.â&#x20AC;? Pattersonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s place in the Christmas traditions of black families seems only to have increased as the AfricanAmerican population of Los Angeles continues to decline amid waves of Latino immigration. The Crenshaw mall now has both a black Santa and a Spanish-speaking Latino Santa, a nod to the demographic shift. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We make a point to stay in tune with our community,â&#x20AC;? said Rachel Erickson, the mallâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s marketing director. Perched at his post in the middle of the mall, Patterson greets the eager and the weary. He disarms frightened children with a swift high-five and shares jokes with their parents.

Jay L. Clendenin/McClatchy-Tribune

Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve come to expect him the last two months of every year, seven days a week, four hours a day. Like many of the children who visit him, he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe his skin color makes him different. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s simply Santa. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I never even thought about it,â&#x20AC;? the 77-year-old said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m just giving back and making the kids happy.â&#x20AC;? He got the job on a fluke. In 2004, Patterson was sitting in the shopping centerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s food court when a mall worker approached him and asked:

â&#x20AC;&#x153;How would you like to be Santa?â&#x20AC;? Patterson had heard the comparison before. Ever since he stopped shaving and a crop of wiry white hair sprang from his face, people would say he resembled St. Nick. Patterson, a computer technician, had retired from the Los Angeles Unified School District years earlier. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just thought I was getting paid to put on a Santa suit and say, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Ho! Ho! Ho!â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But then I sat down and saw their reactions. I get a chance to make kids happy.â&#x20AC;?

to mar the funeral appeared to be resolved late Saturday night when Archbishop Desmond Tutuâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spokesman said the Nobel Prize-winning cleric would attend Sundayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s funeral. Earlier, Tutu had said he would not attend because he had not been invited or accredited as a clergyman. Spokesman Roger Friedman did not say what brought about the change in Tutuâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plans. Earlier, Mac Maharaj, a spokesman for the presidency, said Tutu was on the guest list. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an important person, and I hope ways can be found for him to be there,â&#x20AC;? Maharaj said. In Qunu, residents expressed deep affection for Mandela. Many people carried small national flags or banners with a smiling image of Mandela.

Qatolo said she was disappointed that local residents would be unable to go to Mandelaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s funeral, in line with local custom, and had instead been asked by officials to view the final rites on big video screens in the area. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The people of the community, they should be there, supporting the family,â&#x20AC;? she

Study: Jupiter’s moon spews water vapor BY AMINA KHAN Los Angeles Times

The icy moon Europa squirts water like a squishy bath toy when it’s kneaded by Jupiter’s gravity – and the Hubble Space Telescope has caught it in the act. The data captured by Hubble depict two huge geysers of water vapor spewing out of the moon, probably from cracks near its south pole. At 124 miles high, the geysers were tall enough to reach from Los Angeles to San Diego. The discovery, described Thursday in the journal Science, shows that Europa is still geophysically active and could

hold an environment friendly to life. “It’s exciting,” said Lorenz Roth, a planetary scientist at the Southwest Research Institute in San Antonio and one of the lead authors of the study, which was presented at a meeting of the American Geophysical Union in San Francisco. Europa isn’t the only squirty moon in our solar system: Saturn’s moon Enceladus has been caught spraying water from its south pole out of four parallel fractures, a formation that scientists have dubbed “tiger stripes.” These pretty plumes are the result of tidal forces. Just as our moon’s gravity squeezes and stretches the Earth a bit, causing

the oceans to rise and fall, Saturn’s massive gravitational pull squeezes and stretches Enceladus. That causes cracks on its icy surface to open and allows water to escape, feeding the planet’s diffuse E ring. Scientists have long wondered whether Jupiter was doing something similar to Europa. After all, that moon’s surface is only about 65 million years old, making it less than 2 percent as old as the solar system.

Scientists figured that some geophysical processes must be going on that are constantly renewing the surface. But over several decades, researchers repeatedly failed to catch the moon in action, said Robert Pappalardo, a planetary scientist at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory. To catch Europa in the act, Roth and his colleagues also knew they had to get the timing of their observations just right.

Enceladus releases water when it’s just about as far from Saturn as it can get. So they made sure to point Hubble toward Europa when it was most distant from Jupiter, in December 2012. Sure enough, they caught a pair of plumes bearing clear signs of oxygen and hydrogen – the components of water vapor – shooting into space from near the southern pole. (Also as expected, when Europa was close to Jupiter, there were

no plumes to be seen.) Scientists can’t say exactly where the plumes are coming from. They could be releases from the ocean of liquid water thought to lie under the moon’s frozen surface or they could be the result of water changing from ice to gas as Europa’s ice sheets rub against each other. If the moon is still geophysically active, that could make it a prime environment for life, Pappalardo said.



China celebrates its first landing on the moon in space, experts said. The Chang'e-3 mission is to hone technology for future missions, while also doing exploration. The landing craft appears capable of carrying a payload more than a dozen times the weight of the 309-pound rover, Paul D. Spudis, a scientist at the Lunar and Planetary Institute in Houston, said in an e-mail. “Although it will do some new science, its real value is to flight-qualify a new and potentially powerful lunar surface payload delivery system,” Spudis said. A later Chang'e mission before 2020 is intended to bring back rocks and other samples from the moon, and that will need a much larger craft capable of sending a vehicle back to Earth. That mission will also need a more powerful launch rocket, which China is developing. Within a decade, China could also become the only country with an operating space station. The International Space Station, which has been open to astronauts from 15 countries, is due to be decommissioned by 2020,

The onboard camera of the lunar probe Chang'e-3 took this picture of the moon surface shortly after landing. lunar travel. The instruments include radar to gather information about what lies as deep as 300 feet below the surface, Chinese space scientists have said. “There is the potential that some really interesting science could come out of this,” Chaikin said.

has finally been realized with Chang'e,” said the China News Service, a state-run news agency. “By successfully joining the international deep-space exploration club, we finally have the right to share the resources on the moon with developed countries.” The Chang'e-3 landing craft carried a solar-powered, robotic rover called the Jade Rabbit, or Yutu in Mandarin Chinese, which was to emerge several hours later to begin exploring Sinus Iridum, or the Bay of Rainbows, a relatively smooth plain formed from solidified lava. According to a Chinese legend, Chang'e is a moon goddess, accompanied by a Jade Rabbit that can brew potions that offer immortality. “It’s a very ambitious mission in the sense that it’s a rover with a fair amount of instruments on it,” said Andrew Chaikin, a space historian and an expert on

Despite its benign name, China’s Jade Rabbit rover could kindle anxieties among some U.S. politicians and policymakers that the United States risks losing its preeminence in space in coming decades.

HONG KONG — China on Saturday became the third country to steer a spacecraft onto the moon, after its unmanned Chang'e-3 probe settled onto the Bay of Rainbows, state-run television reported. The United States and the Soviet Union are the other countries to have accomplished “soft” landings on the moon – in which a craft can work after landing – and 37 years have passed since the last such mission. The successful arrival of the Chang'e-3 after a 13-day journey from Earth was reported on Chinese state television. Chinese news websites displayed what they said was a photograph from the craft of the moon’s surface. At the time of the last soft landing, by the Soviet Union in 1976, Mao Zedong was a month from death and China was in the twilight of his chaotic Cultural Revolution. Now China, much richer and stronger, aspires to become a globally respected power, and the government sees a major presence in space as a key to acquiring technological prowess, military strength and status. Chinese media celebrated the landing as a demonstration of the country’s growing scientific stature. Television reports showed engineers at the mission control center in Beijing crying, embracing and taking pictures of one another on their cellphones. “The dream of the Chinese people across thousands of years of landing on the moon

and China’s own, much smaller station could be ready to go up about the same time, if preparations go smoothly. China is not among the countries allowed to use the international station.

The most common type of vascular lesion is the condition known as varicose leg veins. Varicose veins are enlarged blood vessels (usually greater than 1 millimeter in diameter) that often bulge and appear “ropey” or entwined. They occur when the wall of the vein weakens or collapses. When near<surface veins are subjected to high pressure, they dilate and elongate, which causes them to develop the purple<blue color associated with varicose veins. The affected veins do not function properly and cause blood to flow back into the leg causing symptoms such as pain, throbbing, aching, tiredness, heaviness, cramps, burning, itching, restless legs, and swelling. Varicose veins can also cause blood clots, thrombophlebitis, pigmentation and eczema and if left untreated, lead to more serious conditions such as bleeding veins and leg ulcers. Varicose veins develop gradually and progressively and tend to increase as people age.

Matting is the development of extremely fine networks of spider veins likely to occur on the outer and inner thighs and the cluster of spider veins may appear as a red or purple patch called blushing or matting (telangiectatic matting) that are mistaken for bruises. Unlike bruises, however, spider vein mattings do not fade with time. Matting is more common in people with extensive surface veins and in overweight people with poor muscle tone. Matting can also follow the surgical removal of varicose veins.

1:D(%7 0%D=5 Spider veins or Telangiectasias are small, thin dilated veins and are usually found close to the surface of the skin. They are caused by small blood vessels that dilate, or swell to the point where they prevent the blood from flowing properly. Typically spider veins are smaller, red or blue veins that appear on the surface of the skin and are commonly found on the leg or face, and usually are primarily a cosmetic concern. They do not enlarge to become varicose veins but can cause significant symptoms despite their small size.

E+*D+? 0%D=5 Facial vein removal is the process of treating the tiny red lines or flushing noted over the face neck and chest. Sometimes called different names such as spider veins, telangiectasias, spider angiomas or benign vascular lesions, facial veins for some can be an unsightly embarrassment and are typically cosmetically unpleasant. Spider veins over the face occur from a weakening of the elastic fibers within the blood vessel walls. Causes often include aging, sun damage, rosacea, hormones from pregnancy or birth control pills, certain autoimmune diseases or steroid use. These tiny, red or purplish vessels can materialize over the forehead, cheeks, nose, eyelids, neck and chest.

B+=( 0%D=5 In most cases, hand veins are normal, healthy veins that have become more visible. Many people develop large bulging veins on the backs of their hands, as they get older. Generally, this is due to their skin relaxing and thinning with age, which causes the veins to become more noticeable and appear enlarged. Normally, these veins do not cause pain and are typically treated for cosmetic reasons.

Is walking sometimes difficult? Do your legs ache and feel heavy? Do the veins in your leg bulge and look unsightly? If you answer yes to any of these questions, you might have a problem with varicose veins and Dr. Paul Cheatum at Innovative Vein may have the answer you need. Innovative Vein is specializing in performing minimally invasive procedures for the treatment of varicose veins, spider veins . This comprehensive, non<surgical approach to vein treatment and medical aesthetics results in minimal side effects, pain and recovery time for patients and is a hallmark of the care Dr. Cheatum and his staff offers patients. “Many people have pain and cramping in their legs,” said Dr. Cheatum, who is trained in phlebology and is a Registered Vascular Technologist. “At Innovative Vein, we specialize in this chronic problem many people suffer from and do our best to help resolve the issue.” Many varicose vein leg problems can stem from the great saphenous or long vein that runs up the entire leg. If the vein is not in good shape, Dr. Cheatum said, it could cause the blood to pool at the bottom rather than flowing upward as it is supposed to do.

In order to properly diagnose varicose veins and determine their severity, we perform comprehensive ultrasound evaluations. Through the use of ultrasound technology we are able to determine if your varicose veins pose any serious risks as well as identify which treatment would be the most appropriate for your condition. At Innovative Vein, we have access to the most advanced testing methods and equipment to ensure that your diagnosis is highly accurate. A comprehensive duplex ultrasound evaluation is one of the most important tests performed to diagnose varicose veins because it determines which treatment will be the most effective for your particular condition. We need to understand the anatomy of your varicose veins and locate faulty valves in order to correct the problem. Prior to performing the ultrasound evaluation, Dr. Cheatum will likely examine your legs while you are in a standing position to look for swelling. He will also carefully review your medical history and ask if you are suffering from any of the symptoms commonly associated with varicose veins, including heaviness, aching, fatigue, restlessness and swelling. ,!- 2?47+5<2=(9 Varicose veins rarely pose a serious medical problem, but if your varicose veins cause you pain and discomfort, you need to consult a doctor. Although some types of varicose veins can be diagnosed based on appearance, other types of veins require further investigation. For example, if your varicose veins have recurred following surgery or your varicose veins have arisen from a faulty valve behind your knee, it is usually necessary to schedule a comprehensive ultrasound evaluation. Ultrasound technology makes it easier to spot vein abnormalities and obstructions in areas that are otherwise difficult to examine. A comprehensive ultrasound evaluation is a non<invasive and painless procedure. It does not penetrate the skin or any openings of the body. Ultrasound evaluations are purely diagnostic, meaning that they are used to diagnose rather than treat a medical condition. B</ D4)5 (<=% During a comprehensive ultrasound evaluation at Innovative Vein, a handheld device called a transducer is placed over the affected area, transmitting high< frequency sound waves that cannot be perceived by the human ear. The sound waves bounce off the veins and are reflected back as detailed images on an external monitor. The monitor produces moving images, which are easier to interpret than still images. The evaluation usually includes duplex imaging, which are tests performed to determine whether there are any leaky valves or blood clots present in the veins. Using ultrasound, we will be able to view a map of the veins underlying your skin. The ultrasound will also measure blood flow in both deep veins and superficial veins. After the ultrasound evaluation is complete, Dr. Cheatum will recommend vein treatment options that are appropriate for your condition and answer any questions you may have about the recommended procedures. A comprehensive ultrasound evaluation takes approximately 20 minutes to perform on each leg. An ultrasound evaluation provides us with a detailed roadmap of superficial and deep veins in your legs, allowing us to plan your treatment more effectively.

If you suffer from leg pain including aching, throbbing or swelling, contact Innovative Vein to schedule your FREE consultation. Dr. Paul Cheatum, MD, will perform a detailed evaluation to assess your needs and determine the procedures that will best treat your condition.

Pace of smartphone innovation reaches lull BY MICHAEL LIEDTKE AND YOUKYUNG LEE Associated Press

SAN FRANCISCO â&#x20AC;&#x201D; This may be remembered as the year smartphones became boring. Although high-definition displays on smartphones have gotten bigger and their cameras have gotten better, the pace of gee-whiz innovation has dawdled. Smartphone and software makers are working on ways to snap out of this technological lull, although it probably will be at least another year or two before breakthroughs revolutionize the design and function of mobile computing devices. In a foreshadowing of things to come, LG Electronics Inc. is boasting about the G Flex, a new phone with a

curved display. Previously available in South Korea and Singapore, the concave device arrived in Hong Kong on Friday. "We want to claim this as the future of smart devices," Ramchan Woo, the head of LG's mobile product planning division, said during a recent demonstration in San Francisco. If such visions are realized, smartphones and tablets will be equipped with display screens that can be rolled up like a scroll or folded like a wallet. Making the devices even easier to carry around will be important if software makers want to deepen the bond between people and their phones. That could happen as smarter tracking tools and voice-recognition technology let smartphones understand

habits and thoughts like a family member. The future smartphone "will be small enough to carry with you at all times without thinking about it, and it will be essential enough that you won't want to get rid of it," Silicon Valley futurist Paul Saffo said. "It will become a context engine. It will be aware of where it is, where you are going and what you need." The G Flex provides a peek at the shape of things to come. Despite its name, the G Flex isn't pliable. The device is slightly bowed from top to bottom, allowing it to curve toward a person's mouth when used for phone calls. It also has a curved battery, something LG says is a first for smartphones. LG applied a "self-healing" protective coat on the G Flex to automatically

He expects the future relationship between people and their phones to be akin to fictional billionaire Tony Stark's connection with the computercontrolled armor that he dons to become Iron Man, a comicbook hero popularized in a trilogy of movies starring Robert Downey Jr. If Llamas is right, future smartphones will become a person's navigator, security blanket, counselor and talisman. Without a smartphone to come to the rescue, a person may even feel reduced to being a mere mortal.

Wichita’s Mid-Continent Airport was fairly quiet Saturday morning, a day after a man was arrested in connection with a plan to bomb the facility.

After he arrived at work, Welch could see through security cameras that the street had been blocked off and unmarked and FBI vehicles had converged on the north side of the building. In the meantime, he began cleaning another hangar that had remained open. At about 6 a.m., workers got the OK to go to their departments. “We went on over to our work area,” Welch said. Through the north window of his hangar, he saw a van at the secure gate and agents taking photographs and otherwise processing the scene. He did not see Loewen. The gate where the alleged terror plot unraveled is between Hawker Beechcraft Services, at 1980 Airport Road, and Yingling. If he had known the suspect could have had explosives, Welch said, he would have left the building. Instead, Loewen was transporting inert explosives and posed no threat, authorities said hours after his 5:40 a.m. arrest. “You think about the Oklahoma City bombings,” Welch said. “It was one of those scary situations. We get so comfortable with our surroundings. It was a wake-up call.” That said, Welch believes security is good at the airport. “We get checked a whole lot,” he said. “I just thank God that nothing happened, and they caught him and we go on and live on.” In the meantime, MidContinent Airport was oper-

I can’t even put it in words.” Terry Loewen, a 58-year-old avionics technician, was arrested early Friday as authorities allege he moved forward with a plot to detonate explosives at Wichita Mid-Continent Airport. In the aftermath, some Wichitans are left trying to come to terms with what they knew and what they didn’t know about this man. Damien Loewen declined an interview request. Efforts to reach Terry Loewen’s current wife, Deborah, were unsuccessful. On Friday in court, she declined to answer questions. Terry Loewen’s planned attack was designated to kill himself and inflict the maximum number of deaths, a detailed criminal complaint said. Authorities arrested Loewen about 5:40 a.m. after they say he tried to open a security access gate to the airport and deliver a vehicle loaded with what he thought to be high explosives but were not. What he didn’t know until his arrest is that the people he had been conspiring with were undercover FBI agents, U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom announced Friday. The 21-page criminal complaint quoted communication he had with FBI employees. In it he told an FBI em-

Travis Rosel was at the airport Saturday to see his mother off after her visit in Wichita. “It’s unbelievable that something like that could happen,” Rosel said. His main concern was whether her flight would be affected. Rosel said he expected security to be tighter, as it was immediately after the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Daniel Collins, who said he works in law enforcement, was flying out of Wichita on Saturday. From his training, “I’m al-

In August, the complaint said, he wrote that “Brothers like Osama bin Laden ... are a great inspiration to me, but I must be willing to give up everything (like they did) to truly feel like a obedient slave of Allah.” Loewen faces three federal charges: one count of trying to use a weapon of mass destruction, one count of attempting to damage property and one count of attempting to provide material support to a designated foreign terrorist organization that Loewen allegedly thought was alQaida in the Arabian Peninsula, based in Yemen. The news was a “total shock,” Sarah Loewen said. “It angers me to no end that my son has to deal with this,” she said. “I don’t know how he could do this to his child.” Her son and his father had a good relationship, she said. “They were close,” Sarah

They filed for divorce in 1994. She didn’t know why or how Terry Loewen had formed such radical ideas. But recently, Damien told her that his dad had become a Muslim. “I said, ‘What is wrong with him?’ ” Sarah Loewen said. As for Damien, she and Damien’s wife will be there to support him, she said.

Polygamy advocates hail ruling in Utah BY MARTIN GRIFFITH Associated Press

Advocacy groups for polygamy and individual liberties on Saturday hailed a federal judge’s ruling that key parts of Utah’s polygamy laws are unconstitutional, saying it will remove the threat of arrest for some families. U.S. District Judge Clark Waddoups said in the decision handed down Friday that a provision in Utah law forbidding cohabitation with another person violated the First Amendment right of freedom of religion. The ruling was a victory for Kody Brown and his four wives, who star in the hit TLC reality show “Sister Wives,” and other fundamentalist Mormons who believe polygamy brings exaltation in heaven. The Brown family filed a

lawsuit in July 2011 and fled Utah for Las Vegas last year under the threat of prosecution. Anne Wilde of Salt Lake City, co-founder of the polygamy advocacy group Principle Voices, said polygamous families have lived under the threat of arrest for decades and no longer have to worry about being charged with a felony. There are an estimated 38,000 fundamentalist Mormons who practice or believe in polygamy, most living in Utah and other Western states, said Wilde, who was a plural wife for 33 years until her husband died. “Now that we’re no longer felons, that’s a huge relief,” she said. “They no longer have to be afraid that someone will knock at their door and take away their kids. This decision will hopefully take

away the stigma of living a principle that’s a strongly held religious belief.” The Utah Attorney General’s Office has not said whether it intends to appeal the ruling. Calls to the office were not immediately returned Saturday. Connor Boyack, president of the Libertas Institute, which defends the cause of individual liberty in Utah, issued a statement Saturday saying the ruling represents “a new beginning and an important invalidation of an unjust law.” He said that while child brides and abuse must be appropriately prosecuted, consenting adults in a plural relationship should not face penalties. The mainstream Mormon church abandoned polygamy in 1890. Today, it strictly prohibits the practice.

New cybersecurity boom in Silicon Valley BY CHRIS O'BRIEN Los Angeles Times

Nefarious cybercrime syndicates and villainous statesponsored hackers are making the digital world an increasingly dangerous place. That’s bad news for companies suffering growing losses from relentless cyberattacks. But it’s good news for Silicon Valley, where cybersecurity has suddenly become the hot new-old thing. The security industry has been around for decades and produced giants such as McAfee and Symantec in the 1990s. But in the past decade, it was mostly overlooked by venture capitalists and entrepreneurs, who didn’t see much opportunity for

big returns. That’s all changed now that the volume and sophistication of attacks are increasing, forcing victims to open their wallets. The result is a digital arms race against wily hackers that has Silicon Valley battling to provide the weapons to the good guys. Venture capital firms are pumping funding into security startups, which are getting gobbled up by big companies that see cybersecurity as a source of new revenue. In a region where tech trends go in cycles, cybersecurity is a particularly mouthwatering investment prospect because no matter how much security equipment or software gets sold, the problem never gets completely solved.

“All the time, there are barbarians at the gate looking aggressively for every vulnerability they can exploit,” said Bob Ackerman, a venture partner at Allegis Capital in Palo Alto, Calif. “And that’s going to go on for years.” That explains why a company like AlienVault of San Mateo, Calif., is practically fighting off investors. Founded in 2007, the company makes a threat-detection system that harnesses the power of crowd-sourced reports to help clients stay on top of the latest hacking exploits. After toiling in the shadows for years, AlienVault became the beneficiary of Silicon Valley’s rediscovery of cybersecurity, raising $55 million in venture capital in three

rounds since January 2012. The company, which now has 300 employees, last year recruited seven top security executives from Hewlett-Packard Co. Many of those executives had worked at Fortify Software, a San Mateo, Calif., security company that HP bought in 2010 for $258 million. Those defectors included current AlienVault CEO Barmak Meftah, who said many companies ignored warnings for years about the possibility of breaches because they seemed mostly hypothetical. With daily headlines about companies under siege, skeptical informationtechnology managers have gotten religion about the need for greater security measures. “The primary demand is final-

ly there,” Meftah said. “If we had built a company of this size five years ago, the awareness of the problem was not there.” AlienVault is just one example of the flood of funding washing over this sector. In the past year, according to CB Insights, cybersecurity startups have attracted $1.4 billion in venture capital across 239 deals. The number of deals is up 19 percent in 2013, thanks to what CB Insights describes as a surge of interest in the sector. That, in turn, has venture capital firms adding partners with an expertise in security, a highly technical and fastmoving field.

Asking for privacy Newtown asked for quiet and privacy on the anniversary. Satellite television trucks filled Newtown’s streets in the days after the shooting, and media have often returned since to the community of 28,000 people for stories related to the attack. In an effort to keep the anniversary focused on quiet reflection, First Selectman E. Patricia Llodra announced in October that Newtown would not host any formal remembrance events. The news media were asked to keep their distance, and “No Media” signs went up around town as they did in the weeks after the tragedy. Some news organizations stayed away Saturday from Newtown. A reporter and photographer for The Associated Press, whose reports are available to media worldwide, were present in the community, and some townspeople were willing to share their thoughts.

Case for Riddel Boys Ranch still can be made The good news is that Sedgwick County, area legislators and state officials are talking about the future of the Judge James V. Riddel Boys Ranch near Lake Afton. The bad news, at least as reported after a meeting last week, is that the prospects for additional state funding look bleak. Corrections Secretary Ray Roberts questioned the amount spent on staffing, pointed to a surplus of bed space for juvenile offenders elsewhere, and said if he increased state funding for the ranch he’d have to do so for other programs. If the ranch is worth saving – and it is, saving the county more than $1 million a year by deterring crime, according to one study – the case can and must be made to the Brownback administration and the full Legislature that it isn’t just another juvenile justice program and merits extra dollars for the long term.

Stripping food stamps from farm bill isn’t smart Many farmers and other Americans support the GOP-led House’s push not only to slash food-stamp funding but to remove it from the farm bill. But Barry Flinchbaugh, professor emeritus in agriculture economics at Kansas State University, recently warned against it. “Should nutrition programs be in the farm bill? Yes. You want proof? In the House there are 400 urban districts. There are 35 rural districts. Who needs who? This isn’t rocket science,” Flinchbaugh told the American Bankers Association’s farm bankers conference in Minneapolis, Minn. Ending the legislative merger of food and farm programs championed by former Kansas Sen. Bob Dole also “would mean the end of the USDA as we know it,” Flinchbaugh said. “If it loses nutrition programs, the budget of USDA will be smaller than 100 sub-Cabinet level agencies. Does it matter that agriculture has a seat in the Cabinet room? That’s a no-brainer.”

Great change doesn’t take war The greatness of Nelson Mandela lay in his commitment to reconciliation and justice. He led a movement that brought freedom to South Africa. Mandela And it happened without a major war. I lived in southern Africa for two years in the 1970s. When I tried to make the case there for nonviolent struggle against apartheid, I was dismissed as a hopeless idealist. A race war was on the horizon. Thanks to Mandela and to other courageous leaders, both black and white, the freedom movement triumphed in South Africa without war. Americans find it hard to believe that such reconciliation can be achieved without violence. We assume that our Civil War was the only way we could have ended slavery. More than half a million Americans died in that war. If we are to rightly honor Mandela, let it be in adopting his high view of great social change through reconciliation and nonviolence. We should re-examine our own history through Mandela’s lenses. And we should imagine a future of growing freedom that does not depend upon hatred of enemies and our readiness to destroy them in warfare.

$150,000 loan. That’s peanuts compared with the amount of money bankers make on the loan. They manage to hide all sorts of extra fees behind “discount points” and “escrow accounts.” It was bankers’ eagerness to loan money and charge fees to people who had no hope of ever repaying their mortgages that crashed the world’s economy a mere five years ago. Perhaps we should be paying more attention to the man behind the curtain. ALDEN WILNER Bel Aire

Expand Medicaid without giving the voting citizens of Wichita a chance to decide whether we would feel safer with or without the allowance. It would also seem reasonable to allow concealed-carry in buildings with security (just show your license on entrance) and not allow it where no one is checking. Would those armed be expected to respond in cases where deadly force was not required? Does anyone check the quality of training that is provided during the concealed-carry classes? There are so many different issues to this rule. It should be open to full discussion and voted on by all.

From all the rhetoric surrounding the Affordable Care Act, it is apparent that many Americans (including Kansans) do not understand the insurance principle and the law of large numbers. With insurance, especially auto and casualty, the many receive the indirect benefit of being protected against the modest probability of a catastrophe, and the few receive the direct benefit of being taken care of when disasters strike. No insurance program would work if everyone expected to receive back as much as he has paid in. Health care insurance isn’t an exact parallel, because the probROBERT JABARA ability of needing to receive a Wichita direct benefit is nearly 100 percent.

Entitlements didn’t build this country BY CAL THOMAS Tribune Content Agency

In a Dec. 4 speech, President Obama declared income “inequality” to be “the defining challenge of our time.” It is time for me to come clean – to own up to a dark secret I have been hiding most of my life. It is embarrassing to admit it, but I suffer from income inequality. Yes, there are hunThomas dreds of thousands, perhaps millions of people who make more money than I do, and it has affected my life in ways too numerous to recount. Starting with my first summer job as a bellhop and kitchen worker at a hotel in Maine when I was 14, I kept records of the amount of money I earned. The ledger records that on a really good day I made as much as $8 in tips. The hotel owner paid me a salary of $20 a week, but included a small room in the basement and all the food I could eat. He made more money than I did. In the early 1960s, as a copyboy at NBC News in Washington, D.C., my takehome pay was less than $100 a week. Everyone else, including, I suspect, the janitor, made more than I did. When I finally got on the air as a broadcast journalist, my NBC check stubs were far less than the withholding on David Brinkley’s paycheck. I still bear the scars from this income “inequality.” When I was 37, I made $25,000 a year and took public transportation to and from work. Many others, including most of the people I interviewed, made far more money than I did. Some of them had cars and drivers to squire them around. Was it “fair” that these people were richer than I

was? Absolutely, as long as I had the opportunity – through education, risktaking, experience and hard work – to eventually make more. Obama and some leaders in the Democratic Party appear to want us to accept a false premise: that if I earn more money than you, I “owe” you some of my money to make things “fair.” This might be true if the amount of money available were fixed, but it is not. Income “inequality” is a part of the greed-envy-entitlement philosophy promoted by liberals who want to addict more people to government and entice them to vote for the party that is effectively buying their loyalty. And now they want to extend the 99-week limit for unemployment benefits, which has the potential to enable those people who are unwilling to look for a job. Today we have a tendency to punish the successful and subsidize the unsuccessful. It used to be the reverse, which motivated more people to become, if not a success, then at least self-sustaining. Today the attitude promoted by the income “inequality” crowd is one of victimization. Poor people are told they are victims because successful people have stolen from them what is rightfully theirs. Envy, greed and entitlement are not the things that built America, or sustained her through numerous wars and a Great Depression. The concern should not be how much others make, but how much you can make if you apply yourself and adopt the values embraced by successful people. Those who make what I once earned and think they can never earn more are being told a lie. Realizing this is the first step to improving one’s income and one’s life.

Updated Century II would boost Wichita BY DENNIS I. CLARY

Recently released findings from a study commissioned to assess Wichita’s convention market confirmed that our current convention facilities fall well below industry standards and put Wichita at a competitive disadvanClary tage. In the hypercompetitive regional convention market, we need to be doing it better than Overland Park and Oklahoma City. The study found that an additional $30 million in annual economic output could be realized by addressing Wichita’s convention facility needs. This figure largely represents the entrance of outside dollars into our community. Like a prized export or the generation of primary jobs, a well-developed convention product means real economic growth – something from which every citizen can benefit. The Young Professionals of Wichita board of trustees proudly advocates for continued downtown revitalization. A vibrant downtown is important because we place great value on the development of our community and quality of life – for everyone. The future of Century II is undoubtedly a part of that vision, if not the shining beacon. The momentum a renovated or rebuilt convention space would generate for downtown, and thus Wichita, cannot be denied. Moreover, the dollars generated by the events held at the facility extend beyond the reach of our community to positively impact the entire region and

A well-developed convention product means real economic growth. state. It is imperative we do something to realize the $30 million convention potential. Unlike many other cities where convention facilities and a performing arts venue are separate, Wichita is unique in that Century II serves as both. Its permanent residents include the Wichita Symphony Orchestra, Music Theatre of Wichita and Wichita Grand Opera. In addition to others, these vital arts organizations generate about $66 million a year and draw visitors to the city. I applaud Go Wichita, the city’s Arts Council and Music Theatre for funding a study to assess the city’s performing arts needs. It is an appropriate next step and underscores the importance of collaboration as we continue to address the future of Century II. A rich performing arts environment and the battle to attract convention business are both critical to our community’s economic vitality. There is an old adage: “You are never stagnant. You are either moving ahead or falling behind.” The data substantiates that to renovate Century II or rebuild aligns with the former. It is a path to increased economic prosperity for our community, region and state. Which will you choose? Dennis I. Clary is chairman of the Young Professionals of Wichita board of trustees.

Not so wonderful life BY BURDETT LOOMIS

In the 1946 Frank Capra classic, “It’s a Wonderful Life,” small-town banker George Bailey discovers what a disaster the town of Bedford Falls would have become, save for his 40-year presence as a decent, generous, selfless individual. It’s a timeless, romantic story, one that dignifies the worth of millions of similar folks who have seamlessly affected the lives of those who surround them. As a Christmas movie, “It’s a Wonderful Life” has no peer, as we find solace in the essential goodness of a man whose actions within his family and community beneLoomis fit all those he touches. The story is uplifting and moving, in large part because we know so many George Baileys, whose modest acts of kindness build one upon another. But for many in our midst, the “what could have been” lessons of the film operate in reverse. Consider the hypothetical case of Bailey George, a young mother living in fictional Bedford Plains, Kan. Separated from her husband, who has been looking hard for work for more than a year, she has three children and holds down two jobs, as a waitress and part-time janitor, in her struggle to make ends meet. She gets by, but barely. She lacks health insurance, yet she earns too much to obtain Medicaid; she does qualify for food stamps, but those have been cut back and will be further reduced. Her two daughters and her son do receive reduced-cost lunches at the school cafeteria, but they are often hungry at month’s end. When her car broke down a few months ago, Bailey George took out a payday loan to cover the repairs. Now she owes more than she borrowed, even though she usually can make the minimum weekly payment. And when her rent check is a day late or her checking account is overdrawn by a dollar, she must pay a hefty penalty. In “It’s a Wonderful Life,” an angel earns his wings by saving George Bailey. But who are the earthly angels who might save Bailey George? In Kansas this year, she would need Gov. Sam Brownback and the Legislature to do some of the heavy lifting, most notably by agreeing to expand Medicaid so that some-

For many Kansans, life isn’t so wonderful. one of her financial status could qualify. This would not take much from the governor and his legislative sidekicks. Accepting the federal government’s offer, through the Affordable Care Act, would mean that Bailey could obtain reasonable health care and not fear being thrust into bankruptcy. Moreover, the economic dividends of accepting federal Medicaid funding might well produce a stronger economy that would open up a better job for her. Congress could also help by providing adequate food-stamp assistance so that George could come closer to adequately feeding her family. Likewise, Congress could extend long-term unemployment benefits, so that her husband could help with some bills. And it could raise the minimum wage, so her janitorial job might pay a few more dollars per week. In addition, both federal and state lawmakers could do more to limit hefty fees and prevent usurious payday lenders from charging rates that drive desperate borrowers further into poverty. All this could happen. Indeed, most of these measures either have been policy in the past (food stamps) or are currently policy outside Kansas (expanded Medicaid and higher minimum wages). Even so, this would scarcely constitute a “wonderful life,” but it would be a bit more bearable. In Bailey George’s fictitious but all too real Bedford Plains, there is no angel, only the cloudy vision of a slightly better life that has been denied her and her family. As we celebrate, again this Christmas, the heartwarming tale of the fictional George Bailey, we must keep all the real-life Bailey Georges and their hard lives in our hearts and minds. Burdett Loomis is a professor of political science at the University of Kansas.

AREA NEWS IN BRIEF Police: Two men robbed South Broadway bank Wichita police on Saturday were searching for a pair of men who reportedly robbed The Valley State Bank at gunpoint Saturday morning. Sgt. Bruce Watts said the men entered the bank, 5310 S. Broadway, about 9:30 a.m., ordered employees to the ground and demanded cash. They got away with an undisclosed amount of money, Watts said. At least one carried a handgun. The men were last seen fleeing in an older model, gray Ford Focus, Watts said. They are in their 20s or 30s, he said, 5-foot-6 to 5-foot-8 tall, weigh about 160 pounds each and have slender builds.

Little Caesars Pizza on East Harry robbed Two armed men reportedly robbed a southeast Wichita pizza restaurant Friday, police say. Wichita police Sgt. Bruce Watts said the men, in their 20s, entered the Little Caesars Pizza at 4100 E. Harry, between Oliver and Hillside, about 10 p.m. and demanded money from store employees. They were given money then ran away, Watts said, before police arrived at the scene. At least four people were inside the takeout restaurant at the time, Watts said. He gave no detailed description of the robbers but said each had a covering over his face at the time of the crime. At least one was armed with a handgun, Watts said. — Amy Renee Leiker

Colvin Elementary fourth-graders arrive at the Palace West Theater on Saturday morning for the premiere of their movie, “Falvey TV.” The students of Brianna Falvey wrote and produced the movie.

Kids see hard work on big screen Wichita fourth-graders wrote, edited, produced, filmed movies BY MOLLY MCMILLIN The Wichita Eagle

On Saturday morning, students in Brianna Falvey’s fourth-grade class at Colvin Elementary School in Wichita got a glimpse of stardom. Better than that, they learned

what they could accomplish when they worked together. They pulled up at the Palace Theater in limousines to watch the movie they wrote, edited, produced and filmed. “It was a huge motivational tool for them,” Falvey said. “It’s been

awesome.” Colvin Elementary, nestled in the Plainview neighborhood, has a 98.7 percent “extremely impoverished” student body, Falvey said. The students were split into five groups, where they selected a genre and wrote their scripts. The groups

chose to work on a newscast, horror, science fiction and action segments and a music video. Through it, they applied reading, writing, speaking and listening skills to real-world applications, Falvey Please see BIG SCREEN, Page 4B

Man, 35, shot in leg during altercation Wichita police say a 35-year-old man is recovering from a leg wound after gunfire erupted during an argument early Saturday near I-135 and Hydraulic. The altercation involved the 35-year-old and two other men, apparently unknown to the shooting victim, at an address in the 1600 block of East Fortuna, Sgt. Bruce Watts said. Around 3 a.m., one of the men pulled out a handgun and fired, he said. At least one bullet struck the 35-year-old’s leg, Watts said. He was taken to a local hospital for treatment. — Amy Renee Leiker

Working secretary inundated with bills after wrist fracture BY FRED MANN The Wichita Eagle

Share the Season is an annual campaign that offers one-time aid to people affected by unforeseen hardships. The people are not identified to protect their privacy. The 63-year-old widow who works as a secretary was unable to pay all her medical bills after fracturing her wrist and needing surgery in October. She also couldn’t pay for the dental work she needed that month because she had maxed out her dental insurance.

“I’m someone who doesn’t even have a doctor because I never get sick,” she said to The Eagle. “This past October, I was inundated.” In addition, some other bills were piling up. So she did something she wouldn’t have thought to do before. She applied to Share the Season. “Many of us are the working poor and don't want to be a burden on anyone, but most appreciate that you would even Please see SHARE, Page 4B

Family who lost dad struggles financially and emotionally BY FRED MANN The Wichita Eagle

Share the Season is an annual campaign that offers one-time aid to people affected by unforeseen hardships. The people are not identified to protect their privacy. This single mother with two children lost her husband two years, and the family has struggled emotionally and financially ever since. The kids have not had a good Christmas since their father died.

“Paying the mortgage and not having to worry about that would help considerably and would free up the money to buy Christmas presents and dinner for the three of us,” she wrote in her application to Share the Season.

Town, Robert L., 76, Professor of Organ at WSU, died Dec. 10, 2013. He was born Oct. 31, 1937 in Waterman, Wisc. His interest in the pipe organ began when he was 3 yrs old, attending church for the first time. Instead of fighting boredom, he was fascinated by the organ. At age 12, he headed a successful campaign to purchase a Hammond organ for his church. At 15, he was appointed organist at First Baptist Church in Weedsport, NY. Mr. Town was admitted to the Eastman School of Music and received his B.M. degree in 1960 studying with Catharine Crozier and earned his masterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s degree at Syracuse University with Arthur Poister. He began his doctoral work at the University of Michigan with Marilyn Mason and was appointed to a teaching position as he continued his doctoral studies. At age 25, Mr. Town won the Boston Symphony Orchestraâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Young Artist Competition, winning over organists with 10 yrs greater experience. He then gave a recital at Boston Symphony Hall. He recalled the competition as the beginning of his national reputation. Mr. Townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recital venues included the Kennedy Center, St. Thomas Church in New York City and the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris. He applied and was accepted at WSU in 1965 by Dean of the College of Fine Arts, Walter Duerksen. He taught until his retirement in 2006. He was a beloved master teacher and his students were successful in competition across the world with two receiving the Fulbright Award, the only students to do so in the history of the College of Fine Arts. His efforts at WSU led to the acquisition of the Great Marcussen Organ and building (Wiedemann Hall) to house it. Many of the finest organists in the world have given recitals in Wiedemann Hall.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Innovative districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; applications a concern BY PETER HANCOCK Lawrence Journal-World

Dave Williams/Eagle correspondent

Parents and teachers photograph Colvin Elementary fourth-graders as they arrive at the Palace West Theater on Saturday morning for the premiere of their movie.

BIG SCREEN From Page 1B said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The district has been encouraging us to come up with some creative ways to incorporate literacy into activities,â&#x20AC;? she said, and to include regular education students and special-education students in a project. The students didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t realize what they were capable of until they pushed themselves, said Natalie May, a fourthgrade special-education teacher who worked on the project. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have seen a tremendous leap in their confidence,â&#x20AC;? May said. They worked closely together and have bonded as a class. Most of the students speak Spanish at home. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One of the biggest challenges was helping them come up with the right words in their writing,â&#x20AC;? May said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Being able to write a story in a way that is understandable for someone whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s viewing it or reading it was a challenge.

ONEOK From Page 1B

Dave Williams/Eagle correspondent

Colvin Elementary fourth-graders sign autographs Saturday morning at the premiere of their movie. It sounds really simple to write a story, but they have to work twice as hard to write those things in our language.â&#x20AC;? Falvey and May didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what to expect as to the level of the stories. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Their stories were really, really good and were fun to read,â&#x20AC;? May said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a really creative, imaginative bunch.â&#x20AC;? Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s viewing was because of the communityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s support.

Debt buyout Another potential longterm benefit is that One Gas will buy out and refinance about $1.2 billion of existing Oneok debt, Springe said. That should bring some savings for One Gas, and ultimately its customers, because the company will presumably be able to borrow the money at a lower interest rate than Oneok has been paying, he said. However, despite the favorable financing and concessions in the settlement, gas bills will continue to fluctuate and still could go up. Commission actions only regulate the portion of the gas bill that pays Kansas Gas to run the system that delivers gas to customers.

LAWRENCE, Kan. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Eight Kansas school districts have filed applications under a new state law to exempt themselves from many regulations governing K-12 education, and some of those are raising concerns within education circles. But superintendents of those districts say the waivers would allow them to address unique issues in their communities and better prepare students for college or the workforce. The waivers are being made available under a new state law, the Coalition of Innovative Districts Act, which was passed by the 2013 Legislature on a largely party-line vote and signed into law by Gov. Sam Brownback. It allows up to 29 districts, or 10 percent of the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 286 school districts, to be exempt from most laws and regulations if they submit a plan showing how that flexibility will help student achievement. The eight school districts that submitted applications before the Dec. 1 deadline include: Santa Fe Trail in Osage County; Hugoton in southwest Kansas; Seaman in Shawnee County; McPherson in central Kansas; Concordia in northcentral Kansas; Blue Valley in Johnson County; Sterling in south-central Kansas; and Kansas City, Kan. Lawrence superintendent Rick Doll said after passage of the bill that the local district had no interest in applying for the exemptions. Several of the districts are seeking waivers that would enable them to focus on preparing students for college and careers by helping them earn college credit and significant work experience even before they graduate from high school. At the Santa Fe Trail school district in Osage County, for example, Superintendent Steve Pegram wants to offer multiple pathways for students to get a high school diploma, including one that would require only two full years of classroom work in core subjects of English, math, science and social studies. The rest could be career training at a community college or technical school, followed by a year of onthe-job work experience that would involve only minimal supervision by the district to ensure the training program is meeting academic standards. To do that, Santa Fe Trail, which has 1,050 students in K-12, is seeking a waiver from the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s high school graduation requirements, which were raised in 2005 to require more courses in core subjects, a move that

John Hanna/Associated Press

Kansas Education Commissioner Diane DeBacker talks about the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plans for revising teacher evaluations. district officials think was unnecessary. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My point of contention is we were trying to raise our test scores in the state more than what was best for the kids,â&#x20AC;? Pegram said. He said students can gain the additional skills and knowledge through job training and work experience as well as they can through classroom instruction. But Karen Godfrey, president of the Kansas National Education Association, the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest teachers union, said graduation requirements and other academic standards were not enacted lightly, and sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s troubled at the idea of waiving them in favor of sending students out to work. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Job experience and internships can have a valuable role, but it has to have a connection to education,â&#x20AC;? Godfrey said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When you loosen those rules, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very troubling. When they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even want to have oversight over the work the kids are doing, it does seem more like work than school.â&#x20AC;?

Teacher licensure Like many of the districts applying, Santa Fe is also seeking a waiver from state teacher licensure requirements so that industry professionals, not to mention college instructors, can teach and supervise high school students without all of the formal teacher preparation that is normally required. But in the tiny Hugoton school district â&#x20AC;&#x201C; enrollment 1,179 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; in the southwest corner of Kansas, Superintendent Mark Crawford said his district needs a waiver to help relieve a troubling shortage of teachers, especially in math and science. Crawford said itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard for Hugoton to recruit fully

licensed teachers to that area of the High Plains, even though the district offers a higher-than-average starting salary of more than $38,000. Many of Hugotonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s teachers come from Colorado and the Panhandle areas of Texas and Oklahoma, Crawford said, all of which have different licensing requirements from Kansas. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always filled our positions, but not always with what is considered a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;highly qualified' teacher,â&#x20AC;? Crawford said, referring to the state requirement that teachers be fully licensed to teach the subjects and grade levels in which theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re assigned, or have a â&#x20AC;&#x153;plan of studyâ&#x20AC;? to become fully licensed within two years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve spent an inordinate amount of money and time getting them coursework for what the licensure board considers plans of study,â&#x20AC;? Crawford said. But Kansas Education Commissioner Diane DeBacker noted that the requirement for highly qualified teachers comes from federal legislation, and sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s concerned about the consequences if the state starts waiving that requirement. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What happens if a parent complains that their kid isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t being taught by a highly qualified teacher?â&#x20AC;? she asked. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Are we (the Department of Education) on the hook for that?â&#x20AC;? DeBacker noted that under the new law, the Department of Education has no say in deciding whether to grant the waivers. The first two waivers will be decided by Gov. Brownback and the chairs of the House and Senate education committees. Later applications will be reviewed by a coalition board made up of the districts that have already received waivers.

Compounding lab adds clean room to avert contamination Jaime Green/The Wichita Eagle

Atlas MD physician Josh Umbehr listens to Michael Scheidt's lungs during an exam.

Physicians, patients find value in direct care BY KELSEY RYAN The Wichita Eagle

For Michael Scheidt, having a family physician on call has given him peace of mind. Scheidt has been a patient of Josh Umbehr, Atlas MD’s physician-owner, since about the time Umbehr started the practice in 2010. His wife – who is now deceased – had a chronic, debilitating disease and wasn’t able to get around easily when they first heard about Umbehr’s practice. “He could do house calls, and just to take her to do a doctor’s visit was a big deal,” Scheidt said during his regular appointment with Umbehr on Wednesday afternoon. Scheidt says he continues to see Umbehr at his office at 10500 E. Berkeley Square Parkway because it’s “just so darn cost effective.” Umbehr, who started the practice just out of residency, says Atlas MD is one of the fastest-growing direct-care practices in the country with about 1,400 members who see the three physicians at practice. “This is cutting red tape, improving access and lowering costs,” Umbehr said.

A growing model For some local physicians, the answer to changes in health care has been to start direct-care practices – also known as concierge medicine – where patients pay physicians a monthly membership fee to be able to see a primary care physician as much as they want for things like checkups, basic lab work and management of chronic conditions. Family practitioner Renae Schuler was considering leaving medicine before she started at Performance Health, 10111 E. 21st St., Suite 106, in April. But now she says she has more time to treat the root causes of her patients’ ailments instead of just the symptoms. “It really is a privilege when someone trusts you

CB Laboratories, a Wichita-based compounding pharmacy, has installed a continuous clean-room monitoring system in anticipation of new federal regulations for the industry, according to a news release. “This is just another step to show we’re invested in protecting patient safety in the products we make,” said JCB Laboratories CEO Brian Williamson. “It’s an ongoing process, investing and reinvesting in new technologies.” Compounding pharmacies make products not available on the marketplace from manufacturers or if physicians have special orders for patients. JCB Laboratories, which was founded in 2002, produces about 100 different products on a regular basis, Williamson said. Compounding pharmacies

The outbreak was traced to contaminated

steroid pain injections produced at the now-closed pharmacy. Under new regulations signed into law on Nov. 27, larger compounding pharmacies can choose to register with the FDA and have federal inspections, while smaller

pharmacies will stay under the jurisdiction of state boards of pharmacy. Williamson said JCB Laboratories will likely register with the FDA, but that a lot still isn’t known about how the new regulations will affect compounding pharmacies. “The New England compounding problem was an anomaly, one of those things where a really bad company was doing really bad things. ... (But) it did raise lot of awareness of quality of compounding pharmacy,” Williamson said. The new monitoring system, from Lighthouse Worldwide Solutions, will monitor conditions to prevent contamination before it occurs. It continuously checks air pressure, temperature and humidity in the clean room in addition to the temperatures of drug storage areas, ovens, incubators and refrigerators. Please see LAB, Page 6B

Computer programming pioneer’s story finally told in memoir BY BRIAN BURNES Kansas City Star

You’ve heard of Rosie the Riveter. Prepare to learn about Betty the Programmer. When the U.S. military recruited mathematicians to help calculate the trajectories of artillery shells in 1945, Betty Jean Jennings applied. Then 20 years old and a new graduate of a northwest Missouri teachers

college, Jennings resisted those who told her she belonged in the classroom. As detailed in her just-published memoir, Jennings wanted adventure, and she found it on a new digital frontier, some of which was classified as top secret. During and just after World War II, she worked alongside the buttoned-down men who helped design the computer technology that no one then knew

would come to dominate American life and culture. “She was not just standing in the same room when these things Bartik were done,” Jon Rickman, retired vice president for information systems at Northwest Missouri

State University, said recently. “She was actively involved.” As the decades passed, Jennings – known after her marriage as Jean Jennings Bartik – grew exasperated as others stepped forward with versions of computing history that differed from her firsthand recollections. As her contemporaries grew ill or passed away, she believed it her responsibility to complete the manuscript that just now

has been published as “Pioneer Programmer.” Bartik, who died in 2011, wanted her book not only to set the record straight but also to encourage young women to pursue career paths similar to the one she followed in the 1940s. Author proceeds from the book, available at, will fund a scholarship for female students pursuing scientific, technological, engineering

or mathematics studies. “That would have pleased my mother very much,” said Timothy Bartik, an economist with the Upjohn Institute for Employment Research in Kalamazoo, Mich. “The percentage of women in computer science actually has declined somewhat over the last 20 years.” In the early 1990s, women received about 29 percent of Please see PIONEER, Page 7B

Unruly air passengers EATON on rise, say flight crews

From Page 5B


GENEVA — Fighting soccer fans, fashion models screaming obscenities and a French film star relieving himself in the gangway are just a few well publicized examples of what airlines say is a growing trend of abusive passenger behavior on planes. Briefing journalists last week, the International Air Transport Association said it aims to use a conference in Montreal next March to seek agreement on the rights of crews and captains to do whatever is necessary to subdue offenders. “Unruly passenger behaviour ... is on the increase,” Tim Colehan of the Genevabased grouping told reporters. “It is a problem which our crews and other travelers face every day.” He cited as typical a passenger who fought cabin crew after throwing liquor at them, and then shouted abuse at flight crew and fellow passengers throughout an overnight flight from Europe to Thailand. Since 2007, when it began recording data, well over 15,000 incidents have been reported to IATA, Colehan said. “But there are almost certainly many more which we never hear about,” he said. The problem for the airlines and the crews, said Colehan, is that international law has not caught up with the new world of global air travel. Often offenders, like the violent passenger on the

The new monitoring system at JCB Laboratories is not the result of a voluntary recall of medications the company issued in August after concerns were raised about conditions at an affiliated testing lab in Loveland, Colo., Williamson said. JCB Laboratories no longer uses the Colorado facility, Williamson said, and there were no reports of patient harm. JCB Laboratories is licensed in 48 states and has 25 employees, Williamson said.

Bangkok flight, go scot free because police in countries where planes land say they have no jurisdiction.

Fear of lawsuits Worse, IATA says, the lack of clarity in the current 1963 Tokyo Convention that governs such cases leaves cabin crew and pilots uncertain on how to respond. “There is always the fear that they could be sued for assault if they restrain a violent passenger,” Colehan said. Other incidents in the skies this year include a violent attack on a flight attendant in China, an American viewing pornography on his computer, and a South African couple having First Class sex, according to credible media reports. A Russian woman on a flight from Los Angeles to London drank liquid soap when refused alcohol, and tried to bite a flight attendant. On another plane a man seized wine from a trolley and locked himself in the toilet to drink it.

Still, come on, isn’t it pretty great when there’s a hail storm? Sure, it adds to the bottom line, yes. … Our success has been the fact that our main goal is to take care of the insurance industry.

ning for the next year. We do a tremendous amount of safety training. OSHA’s guidelines are getting tougher and tougher. … You have to be safe. How difficult is the name change? It’s actually been a threeyear process. We knew it would be pretty difficult. When we started this business in 1993, we needed a name that kind of told people who we were and where we were from. … It was a great plan 20 years ago, but as things have changed and grown, it has become a little painful. Such as this past week when you were shooting a television commercial? I made it four times. Everything we did, we did it times four. The bottom line on the change is it’s economics. And we can grow easier, and we are in a growth mode. … It will make our operation

much smoother. So both of your daughters now work for you. What’s that like? My oldest daughter, Bree, has a degree … in marketing. You know, women in roofing isn’t real common, and she as a youngster kind of thought, “man, Dad, I don’t know if I want to work for a roofing company.” She is now in charge of our marketing. … She likes it. …It’s been fun to watch. … My youngest daughter, she’s 22. … Her name is Sydney. She’s on her eighth week. As we have expanded, we felt the need to (expand front office operations) … Sydney is training in that department and doing a wonderful job. What’s your most important business advice to your daughters? They’ve got the company name in their name, so there’s a little bit of pressure for them, obviously. … Our

motto at work (is): Character is our main ingredient. My biggest advice is to maintain that character. Is there anything you’d still like to accomplish in your career? What I really enjoy doing at this point is doing my fair share of lobbying for the … industry. What’s one thing few people know about you? The one thing is still my tremendous love for my father. … Dad’s been gone for 15 years. … As you mature, you think a lot more about the teachings of your father, your ancestors, and he’s been a very important part of getting us to where we are today. That’s always in my mind. Reach Carrie Rengers at 316-268-6340 or Follow her on Twitter: @CarrieRengers.


DIRECT CARE From Page 5B with their health,” Schuler said. “Being able to build that relationship is old-fashioned. … The relationship is between a doctor and patient, not an insurance company directing care.” Tom Blue, chief strategy officer at the American Academy of Private Physicians, a professional organization for direct-care physicians based in Glen Allen, Va., says there are about 5,500 private physicians nationwide, which means they have some form of direct financial relationship with patients in the place of or in addition to health insurance. The number is rapidly growing at about 25 percent each year, Blue says.

PIONEER From Page 5B bachelor’s degrees awarded in computer and information sciences, according to a recent New York Times article. Twenty years later, that percentage has declined to 18 percent. The position Bartik received in March 1945 was as a “computer,” which then meant not a machine but a person who computed. The job required her to calculate the arc of artillery shells for big guns being developed at the Aberdeen Proving Ground in Maryland. She soon took another job as a member of a six-woman team that programmed the Electronic Numerical Integrator and Computer (ENIAC), today considered the first successful general-purpose programmable electronic computer, assembled at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia. Key word: programmable. “The computers we have today are capable of being programmed,” said Rickman, “Pioneer Programmer” coeditor. “You can change instructions, allowing the computer to solve different problems – not just to add, but

SUNDAY, DECEMBER 15, 2013 ■ THE WICHITA EAGLE 7B It “sort of combines the chaos and uncertainty of health care reform, and as the country approaches cost crisis … it’s becoming harder for independent practices to sustain financial viability when they 100 percent depend on third-party payers,” Blue said. “They face the choice of going into employment by hospitals or revisiting their business model, and a lot are revisiting their business model.”

The word “concierge” has mischaracterized the movement toward direct care, Blue says, by making patients think that it is expensive. The average price of direct care nationwide is about $135 each month. But Wichita physicians are offering the service for less.

At Atlas MD, the membership fees are $10 month for kids, $50 a month for adults up to 44 years old, $75 a months for adults 45 to 64, and $100 a month for those older than 65. Membership includes unlimited home and office visits, some in-office procedures and discounts on labs. There are different fees depending on the level of care needed at Performance Health, said James Seberger, a physician who founded the practice about two years ago. Most membership fees at Performance Health are about $500 each year and include unlimited access to physicians and some lab work. The physicians can also get prescriptions at wholesale prices, less than what they would typically cost, he said. Despite the name “concierge medicine,” local physicians

subtract or divide.” That was a big deal on the Aberdeen Proving Ground. Bartik and her colleagues had to calculate shell trajectories accounting for variables such as powder load, wind and altitude. This process could take up to 40 hours for a trained mathematician working at a table with a mechanical calculator. The ENIAC could complete that task in about 20 seconds. This was world-altering. Bartik later headed a team that modified the ENIAC into the first stored-program electronic computer. Key phrase: stored-program. “This meant that someone could write a program and that program could be loaded into the computer, so it could execute that program from memory and not have to be rewired,” Rickman said. “All of these things were just huge events in computing history.” Bartik sometimes referred to this era as her “technical Camelot,” said Kim Todd, “Pioneer Programmer” coeditor. In part because of the wartime homefront shortage of able-bodied men, Bartik and her female colleagues were allowed roles that they may not have had otherwise. Bartik sometimes believed

little had been expected of her. When she applied for her job on the ENIAC, male engineers felt it necessary to ask whether she was afraid of electricity. Some men, Todd said, believed women often associated electricity with horror movies such as “Frankenstein.” Then there was the treatment that Bartik and a female colleague received after the first official demonstration of the ENIAC, on Feb. 15, 1946. After the successful test, the generals shook hands with the engineers – all men – and then left to celebrate over dinner. Nobody invited the two women. “When it was over, nobody congratulated us, thanked us or or recognized us in any way,” Bartik wrote, “not a single person.” Bartik and her colleague walked home. “It felt as if history was made that day – and then it had run over us and left us flat in its tracks,” she wrote. While Bartik continued to work in the computing industry through 1985, her early achievements long went unacknowledged, Rickman said. That began to change after a 1996 series of articles in the Wall Street Journal.

think the model is accessible to those with lower incomes. “The ‘concierge’ term gets people to imply high value, which is good. We want them to feel like they’re coming to a high-quality place,” Umbehr said. “But it also gets them to assume high cost. That’s OK, though, because I can show you my costs are affordable.” Umbehr says he has several patients who were previously going to safety net clinics. He and the Performance Health doctors say they also have a number of scholarship patients or patients they see free of charge.

Insurance Starting Jan. 1, nearly everyone will be required to have health insurance or pay a penalty to the government. The penalty is $95 per adult and $47.50 per child (up to $285 per family) or 1 percent of the family income, whichever is greater, for 2014, according to the IRS, and the penalties increase for the next

couple of years. But direct-care physicians say they don’t think insurance requirements will affect their business model because many of their patients already have insurance or are willing to pay the penalty. Under common insurancecovered treatment plans, the physician creates a record for each visit, with a billing code for every disease or issue, Seberger said. For every treatment, physicians or their employers are reimbursed from insurance. But that’s different in direct care, Seberger said. “This (direct care) model encourages consistent visits,” Seberger said. “In this model, we’re paid to prevent things like heart attacks. … We don’t bill based on a disease code.” About half of Schuler’s patients have insurance coverage, she said. “You need (insurance),” Seberger said. That’s because hospital stays, surgical procedures and MRI’s, among a number of

other medical services, aren’t covered by concierge plans. Umbehr says he also encourages his patients to have some form of insurance. But “you don’t have car insurance to buy gasoline,” he says. Seberger said he thinks that premiums and deductibles for insurance will continue to rise and that people will begin to use their plans more like catastrophic coverage, not utilizing health care as much. Seberger says he recommends that patients have a Health Savings Account or a Flex Spending Account to dedicate a certain amount of money each month toward health care. “We provide a clear picture of what a cost will be each year, you can include dental by going to your dentist and you can take care of the majority of the things that are going to try to upend you,” Seberger said.

oor Clark Griswold. He was born too early. Fans of the classic movie “Christmas Vacation” remember that his quest to coat his house in Christmas light so plentiful that they were visible from space was an exercise in extension chords, frustration and citywide power outages. But that was 1989. In 2013, modern Clark Griswolds take a much more streamlined, high-tech approach. Thanks to computer technology, these illumination artists can not only ignite every square inch of their houses with lights, they also can make those lights dance to music broadcast on their own radio stations. Wichita is home to a growing number of such artists, who over the past several years have

Trans-Siberian Orchestra fans receptive to change in show BY ALAN SCULLEY Eagle correspondent

Last fall, Trans-Siberian Orchestra made the biggest change ever to its annual holiday tour. After having performed its rock opera “Christmas Eve and Other Stories” as the centerpiece of its show for its entire 13-year touring history, founder and band leader Paul O’Neill decided to spotlight a different rock opera. Instead, Trans-Siberian Orchestra performed “The Lost Christmas Eve,” the 2004 album that was the third and final chapter in the group’s trilogy of Christmas rock operas. O’Neill didn’t dare talk about it last year, but his decision to switch from “Christmas Eve and Other Stories” to “The Lost Christmas Eve” was not popular with plenty of people involved in the group’s tours. “I’ll be quite honest: Everybody was against switching from ‘Christmas Eve and Other Stories,’ ” O’Neill said in a November phone interview. “We never, ever intended to tour the first part of the trilogy for 13 years. It just kind of happened. Originally we were going to change it in ’08. But (booking agency) William Morris freaked out. ‘Paul, with the economy, this is not the time to be experimenting.’ So we didn’t.” Essentially what had happened, O’Neill said, is “Christmas Eve and Other Stories” was becoming Trans-Siberian Orchestra’s equivalent to the classic Charles Dickens story “A

SAG, Golden Globe nominations signal chances for Oscars


Hustle” led the pack with seven nominations each. Those films’ casts also fared well in acting nominations. The Golden Globe Awards will be handed out Jan. 12, with Tina Fey and Amy Poehler again hosting the telecast, which will be broadcast live on NBC. It’s all leading to the Academy Awards, and those nominations will be announced Jan. 16.

wo more high-profile groups announced their awards nominations this week, kicking movie awards season into high(er)

gear. First, the Screen Actors Guild revealed its choices Wednesday, showering love on “12 Years a Slave” with four nominations, including outstanding cast, the SAG’s version of best picture. Other outstanding cast nominees were “American Hustle,” “August: Osage County,” “Lee Daniels’ The Butler” and “Dallas Buyers Club.” The nominations further signaled Oscar chances, even though some notable performances were overlooked (most noticeable was Robert Redford for “All Is Lost” and Leonardo DiCaprio for “The Wolf of Wall Street”).

“12 Years a Slave” is doing well in movie awards season. The SAG awards will be handed out Jan. 18 and televised live on TBS and TNT. On Thursday, the Golden Globe Awards nominations were announced. These awards, given annually by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, are widely viewed as having less merit but no less star power. People watch the awards show because stars show up; stars show up because people watch the awards show. And it’s usually a tipsy

party. It’s also a given that critics generally like to poke fun at the Golden Globes, which sometimes have questionable nominees and winners. But this year, critics in general are saying that the Globes have gotten it (mostly) right, and that they have nothing to be ashamed of, even if the Globes are mostly viewed as a stop on the way to the Oscars instead of a precursor to them. “12 Years a Slave” and “American

For land’s sake — The independent comedy “Ghost Phone” is trying a unique approach to movie marketing. The film is now in limited release in nine theaters across the country through Thursday, self-distributed by the Taos Land & Film Co. Here’s the marketing hook: Everyone who buys a ticket to the film is automatically entered into a contest to win five acres of land in Taos, N.M. Really! Moviegoers keep their ticket stubs, a drawing will be held Dec. 23, and the winner will be announced on What a great Christmas present! Unless the land is radioactive or something, which I seriously doubt. The film follows a man (Nelson

When compiling your holiday to-do list, include some time for enjoyment


and tell me to join the real world, know that I, too, have lists. And I get a little anxious getting it all finished on time. But this year I’m making sure I think beyond that big check mark when something is accomplished. Put this on your list: Throw out the stress and bring on the memories. Check!

Take a moment right then and also in the next few days to think about the people opening your holiday greetings. Granted, I’m a full-tilt nut case for the season, as I’ve been told by friends and families for many decades. That’s why I remember vividly last year standing behind a woman at the grocery store who pulled a list out of her purse, turned to me, held up the list and said, “This is why I hate Christmas.” She might as well

have punched me in the gut. I had no snappy comeback because I wanted to sit her down, buy her a cup of coffee and remind her that even though it’s a busy time, it shouldn’t resemble the third ring of hell. As she grabbed the basket and started out I wanted to remind her that this season won’t come again. Yes, December will come again next year, but not this season. Now, before you e-mail me

on a high note,” O’Neill said. “We actually rewrote the story to make it even tighter.” As usual, though, this year’s Trans-Siberian Orchestra holiday concert won’t be a repeat of the previous year’s production. There will be a different mix of songs in the second half of the show, which will draw from “Christmas Eve and Other Stories,” “The Christ-

mas Attic” (the second installment in the holiday trilogy), the 2012 five-song holiday EP “Dreams of Fireflies (On a Christmas Night)” and even Trans-Siberian’s nonChristmas rock operas. O’Neill is also rolling out a new arsenal of lasers, pyrotechnics and the other visual effects that have long made Trans-Siberian Orchestra concerts one of the most visually spectacular rock shows going. “As always, we’re always looking to put new special effects on the flight deck,” O’Neill said. “So every year we try to mix it up. Some things we keep for a couple of years. … And the pyro and laser companies have come up with some brand-new special effects. One thing: We have our own people who try to come up with cutting-edge ideas, but after all of this time, every light company, laser company, pyro company knows if they come up with a great special effect that’s insanely expensive, there’s one band dumb enough to buy it.” O’Neill’s willingness to keep investing in the live show – he’s also famous for making

sure the group can replicate virtually every musical detail of the studio versions of its songs live – has been one reason Trans-Siberian Orchestra has achieved such enormous success since it first went on the road in 1999. O’Neill, longtime producer of the progressive metal band Savatage, founded TransSiberian Orchestra in 1993 around the idea of combining a rock band and symphony to perform, for the most part, rock operas. The cast of musicians and singers would change to suit the needs of each composition. Originally, the plan was to debut with a nonholiday rock opera. But O’Neill decided instead to tackle what he considered the most challenging project first – the Christmas trilogy, beginning with “Christmas Eve and Other Stories,” followed by “The Christmas Attic” in 1998. Then came the first holiday tour in 1999, and Trans-Siberian Orchestra was off and running. Along the way, O’Neill not only completed the Christmas trilogy with “The Lost Christmas Eve,” he moved into non-

holiday rock operas. The first such album, “Beethoven’s Last Night,” was released in 2000 and was followed by “Night Castle” in 2009. The latter album serves as a good example of O’Neill’s attention to detail in the studio. It was originally supposed to be released in 2005, but O’Neill refused to declare “Night Castle” finished until he found the exact vocalist (Jeff Scott Soto) for one of the key characters (Lt. Cozier). Three more nonholiday rock operas are now nearing completion: “Romanov: When Kings Must Whisper,” “Gutter Ballet” and “Letters From the Labrynth,” but they have been held up because O’Neill is still searching for the perfect vocalists for certain tracks. “Whatever one’s vocals are finished first will be the next record,” O’Neill said. “In hindsight, I’m glad that ‘Night Castle’ waited the four years because I don’t think it would have been the same without Jeff Scott Soto. He definitely took that and made it work. Writing great songs is only half the battle. You need the right singer to do the alchemy, to bring it to life.”

“The Last Waltz” may be more famous, but the best Band live album was 1972’s “Rock of Ages.” This four-CD set exFrom Page 1C pands greatly on the original, adding the complete Dec. 31, 1971, performance that feawhich stand up to Sly & the tured a four-song encore with Family Stone’s prime materiBob Dylan.

Originally, 28 songs from these sessions were released across three albums. This deluxe package assembles these songs and 27 outtakes that have surfaced on various posthumous releases. This gives these final recordings (which spanned R&B, country, pop, gospel and rock) a coherence and context they never before had. Rating: 3 ½ stars out of 5. Other possibilities include:

Legacy Records continued its “Complete Album Collection” series this year. The big entry is the Bob Dylan set, which features all 41 of his albums. There are also sets compiling Paul Simon’s 12 solo albums, Harry Nilsson’s RCA albums, Herbie Hancock’s 28-album Columbia Records catalog, Taj Mahal’s Columbia Records catalog and mono versions of the nine albums Miles Davis released between 1957 and 1964. Universal Records got into the act with the Moody Blues “Timeless Flight” set that has 11 CDs of studio and live tracks, three discs in DVD-audio and three DVDs of videos and concert performances. If someone on your shopping list is a fan of any of these artists – and is

missing some of the albums in these sets – any of these could be just the ticket for this year’s gift. Other two-disc sets that make good gifts include: the deluxe edition of Nirvana’s final album, “In Utero,” which has a healthy number of outtakes and demos; the deluxe edition of “Texas Flood,” the debut album from Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble, which adds a 1983 concert to the package; a two-CD/oneDVD Julio Iglesias greatest hits set, with a DVD of his “Starry Night” concert; and a reissue of super group Mad Season’s lone album, “Above,” which features the original album and a DVD with performances from two concerts.

Red Cloud’s legend comes alive in historical tour de force BY GAYLORD DOLD

“The Heart of Everything That Is: The Untold Story of Red Cloud, An American Legend” by Bob Drury and Tom Clavin (Simon and Schuster, 414 pages, $30) Among the Bad Face Brule band of Sioux living in the western Nebraska panhandle was a brave called Lone Man, whose Oglala wife, Walks as She Thinks, was pregnant with her first child. Preparing to give birth, Walks as She Thinks spread a blanket on the sand beside Blue Water Creek. That night, meteors streaked through the cloudy sky, an astronomical event interpreted by Lone Man as an omen. The Brules agreed with Lone Man’s decision to name his son Makhpiya-huta, which was translated as Red Cloud. The year was 1821 and the infant was to become the Sioux nation’s war leader in the Powder River War 46 years later, and the Plains Indians’ only strategic warrior (though there were many Indian heroes) in a decadelong struggle by the united tribes to preserve a tiny fraction of their culture and land.

NONFICTION Just when the general reader might think that everything has been written about the wars of the Northern Plains, modern historians and researchers continue to produce astounding feats of research, reinterpreting, analyzing and reorganizing the record to produce works that are not only original, but also detailed. “The Heart of Everything That Is” is grand in scope and beautifully observed, telling not only the story of Red Cloud’s life and his 1866-68 struggle called, by some, Red Cloud’s War (though the Brules were joined by a large coalition of Indian tribes and bands, some of whom were former enemies), but also taking the reader on a tour de force of historical storytelling. Bob Drury, an independent historian and foreign corre-

spondent who has reported from Iraq, Darfur and Afghanistan, is the author of nine books and a magazine writer of note. His partner, Tom Clavin, has written 16 books and was a writer for the New York Times, and also the investigative features correspondent for Manhattan Magazine. Together, these two freelance writers have managed a feat of scholarship that interweaves ethnological brilliance and an insightful reinterpretation of Indian culture from the point of view of the Sioux and their allies, mainly the northern Cheyenne. The book is accompanied by a set of excellent maps and photographs, and an up-to-date bibliography. Beginning with Red Cloud’s birth in 1821, the authors take the reader on a galvanizing ride through time and space, an ethno-sphere peopled by unforgettable characters like Spotted Tail, Sitting Bull, Young Man Afraid of His Horses and, notably, Crazy Horse on the Indian side, and Jim Bridger, William Fetterman, Col. Henry Carrington, “Little Phil” Sheridan and many others on the “civilized side.” Most impressive, per-

haps, is the book’s deeply convincing explanation of Indian cultural life, including war-making, the warrior ethic and tribal political undertakings and procedures. Equally stirring is the authors’ ability to integrate contemporary diaries, journals, eyewitness accounts and genuinely authoritative firsthand sourcing into an utterly mesmerizing account of how, for a short time, Red Cloud managed to hold the Americans at bay despite being outgunned, outmanned and outsupplied. The centerpiece of the book is the famous Fetterman Massacre, in which 88 members of the Second Cavalry were killed by a coalition of Indian warriors about eight miles outside Fort Phil Kearny on Little Piney Creek, just east of the Bighorn Mountains in contemporary north-central Wyoming, where the Army was tasked to guard the Bozeman trail to the Montana gold fields. Red Cloud had laid the ambush. Crazy Horse acted as the stalker, taunting the soldiers, baring his rear end and daring them to come ahead. When they did, they were subject to an onslaught of 40,000 arrows, 1,000 for

every minute of the fight. The bodies of the troopers and their four officers were mutilated after death, which to the Indians’ way of thinking hampered their passing to the Sacred Hunting Ground. The half-starved troops and civilians inside the fort heard the fight, but it was over too quickly for a rescue outfit to join the fray. Red Cloud lived to the age of 88 and died on the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota, where his descendants still live. He is buried in a cemetery atop a hill on the reservation, from where one can almost see the Black Hills, the sacred Paha Sapa, taken (another broken treaty) from the Indians when gold was discovered there in 1874. Red Cloud knew the whites – he had visited Washington many times and seen their world. He understood. At the end of his life he said, “The white man made me a lot of promises, and they only kept one. They promised to take my land, and they took it.” Gaylord Dold is a crime novelist based in Wichita. Visit his website at

Plenty to ponder Thomas Pynchon’s newest novel is clever and demanding.


“Bleeding Edge” by Thomas Pynchon (The Penguin Press, 477 pages, $28.95)


homas Pynchon, named by critic Harold Bloom as one of the four major American novelists of his time, along with Don DeLillo, Philip Roth and Cormac McCarthy, writes complicated, demanding novels that explore multiple themes. At the same time, he fills his works with pop culture references (real and made up) and includes much humor and satire. His new novel, his eighth and a finalist for this year’s National Book Award, is set in New York City in 2001, following the collapse of the dot-com boom and leading up to and after the tragic events of Sept. 11. But while it’s a historical novel and captures that period with its references to pop music, TV shows, movies (many invented), as well as to Microsoft as the Evil Empire, it also introduces elements that feel contemporary. For example, he explores the Deep Web, the vast Internet content that is not part of the Surface Web that is indexed by standard search engines. (Time magazine recently ran a cover story about it.) Or the NSA controversy. One character predicts “a total Web of surveillance, inescapable.” Reg, a documentary filmmaker, talks about trying to spread around DVDs, “hoping somebody with the bandwidth would post one at least.” He predicts that “someday there’ll be a Napster for videos, it’ll be routine to post anything and share it with anybody.” Yep. And the protagonist responds with another contemporary truism, “How could anybody make money doing that?” The protagonist here is Maxine

Thomas Pynchon is one of the most camera-shy writers in America. Most known images of him date from his younger years.

FICTION Tarnow, who runs a small fraudinvestigating agency called Tail ’Em and Nail ’Em. She works on the Upper West Side, hunting down small-scale con artists. But she has had her license revoked, so she’s less inclined to follow legal guidelines. She carries a Beretta handgun and hacks into people’s bank accounts. She’s also the mother of two school-age boys, Ziggy and Otis, and her ex-husband, Horst, soon shows up and eventually moves in. (Pynchon makes many jokes about Jewish mothers.) Maxine looks into the finances of a computer-security firm and its billionaire CEO, Gabriel Ice, who is as cold and ruthless as his name (the names of Pynchon’s characters are almost never random), and trouble brews all around her. She gets mixed up with all kinds of characters, though it’s often difficult to distinguish their differences, other than their names. Their speech sounds similar, and Pynchon doesn’t offer much description of them. One is a drug runner; one is

an investigator who hunts clues with his nose. Another is an enforcer who has a foot fetish. Some are connected to the Russian mob, while others are bloggers, hackers, code monkeys or entrepreneurs. Some of these latter turn up dead. Mixed in with all these shenanigans are conspiracy theories. When a tape reveals a group of men on a rooftop with a missile launcher, one character is sure they are part of a government plot to bring down the Twin Towers. What there is of a plot is often hard to follow, as Maxine moves from meeting one character to another. New York City itself is a major character, and Pynchon dwells on the mood of the city following 9/11. More fun are his descriptions (“eyes wide as fairground lollipops”), his puns (“Zorba the Geek”) or his humor (one character says, “with your neo-Brechtian subversion of the diegesis,” which Maxine thinks “sounded like a pitch for a Christian weight-loss program”). An aspect of his humor is the plethora of topics he delves into, from opera to an invented African-American romance show. Pynchon develops multiple

themes, including the search for what’s real. The darkness of a computer screen is “a darkness pulsing with whatever light was before light was invented.” His description of those who write code to create a virtual world reminds readers of the work of fiction writing. Pynchon also likes to mix comments with his descriptions. For example, he describes “oil-storage tanks, tanker traffic forever unsleeping,” then adds, “addiction to oil gradually converging with the other national bad habit, inability to deal with refuse.” He goes on to describe heaps of landfill “reaching close to 200 feet overhead.” Is there a point to all this? I’m not sure. Perhaps bleeding-edge technology, which one character refers to as having “no proven use, high risk, something only early-adoption addicts feel comfortable with,” is some metaphor for our world today. “Bleeding Edge” is a complex, demanding novel. But it contains much clever writing that’s fun to read. It will also leave readers with much to ponder. Gordon Houser is a writer and editor in Newton.

From Page 1C Putting displays like his together take time, dedication and cash, he said. He’s been collecting pieces of the display for six years, which is how long the display has been up and running. He’s not sure how much he’s spent on the display over the years but guesses that he drops between $3,000 and $5,000 a year. The displays are created using special software and kits that are controlled by a computer. A basic starter kit costs around $350, lights not included. The display builders attach various lights to their houses, roofs, trees and landscaping. Many create their own structures, too, from wire Christmas trees to arches made of PVC pipe. The kits come with controllers, each of which can accept about 16 plug-ins. The computer software allows the designers to program how and when the lights attached to each plug in will flash, and they can sync the shows to their music of choice. Depending on a designer’s level of experience, it can take between 40 and 100 hours to program a single song. Assembling the light display takes even longer. Most start putting lights up by Halloween. Most of Wichita’s display builders broadcast the music onto a radio station, which can be heard only within the vicinity of the house. They post signs instructing visitors where to tune their car radios, and many are accepting donations for charity. Williams’ charity of choice is Make-AWish, and he manages to collect about $1,000 a year. Williams said that he’s mo-

Last weekend, he said, he looked out the window and saw three buses parked outside, filled with people watching his masterpiece. He’s also encouraged by his neighbors, who could grow impatient with the constant traffic or annoyed at the latenight daylight coming in their windows. But Williams’ neighbors love what he does, he said. “We’ve got one of the best neighborhoods in Wichita,” he said. “In fact they bought me a Clark Griswold hockey jersey this year. I kind of wanted one, and they chipped in and got it.” The popularity of elaborate animated displays might have something to do with the advent of the LED Christmas light, said Clayton Gossett, who has been putting up a display at his house at 3805 Longview Lane, near Kellogg and Hillside, for the past seven years. When he first put up dis-

plays, he didn’t use LED lights and received a few power bills that “were probably a little shocking.” But LED lights are so inexpensive to run that even with his 31,500-light display that covers his entire yard, he doesn’t notice any difference in his power bill. Gossett, a home remodeler whose side job is drumming in local bands, describes himself as a hobbyist whose nature is to “go bigger and better every year on things that I do.” His display on his twostory house has grown and grown. This year, he erected a 40-foot pole in his front yard,

which he designed into a light-strand Christmas tree that’s the center of his display. This year, he also enlisted the help of a musician friend in Denver, who recorded a funky, 12-minute long track of electronica Christmas carol mashups that give Gossett’s display a distinctly modern feel. “The other night, I came home, and the party buses were out there,” he said. “I thought, ‘Yeah, that’s cool.’ I’ve also seen people dancing in the street. I saw a couple get out of their truck and just start dancing in the street.”

WICHITA’S TOP ANIMATED LIGHT DISPLAYS Following is a look at some of Wichita’s most popular dancing, musical light displays. To see them all in action, watch a video on Lights on Barrington, 7507 W. Barrington, near 21st and Ridge: Dave Williams, with the help of his wife, Mindy, has created a display that features 40,000 lights dancing to songs such as “Winter Wonderland.” Visitors can hear the music through their car radios as they watch, and they can make donations for MakeA-Wish. The show will run from 5:30 to 10 p.m. Sundays through Thursdays and 5:30 to 11 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays through Dec. 27. For more information, visit “Lights on Barrington” on Facebook. Lights on Lawrence Court, 1122 N. Lawrence Court, near 13th and Woodlawn: Brad Short and Scott Lawrence have one of Wichita’s largest Christmas display, which features 300,000 lights and many of the decorations that once decorated the Wey Mansion on Park Place. (Short bought the light several years ago.) Their show includes music broadcast over the radio and a collection for Children’s Miracle Network. It runs from dusk until 10:30 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays and dusk to 11:30 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays and will be up through New Year’s Eve. Santa will be greeting visitors at the display on the evenings of Dec. 20, Dec. 21 and on Christmas Eve. Marshall Family Christmas Lights, 620 N. Stratford Lane, near Central and Rock: This display, run by Mark Marshall, his wife and their eight children, covers the family’s large home with 100,000 dancing Christmas lights choreographed to songs selected and approved by family matriarch Susie Marshall, including classics such as “Oh Holy Night.” It runs from dusk until 10:30 p.m. Sundays through Thursdays and from dusk to 11 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays. The Marshalls accept donations for The Lords Diner and St. Anthony Family Shelter. It’ll be up until the weekend after New Year’s. Information, /MarshallFamilyChristmasLights. Lights on Millwood, 1812 S. Millwood, near Seneca and Pawnee: Mark Benoit runs this display, which he likes to inject with touches of humor, such as singing windows. One of his favorites is “The Christmas Can-Can” by Straight No Chaser. Benoit has almost 100,000 dancing lights and raises money for Camp Hope. It runs from 6 to 10 p.m. daily through New Year’s Eve. Lights on Longview Lane, 3805 Longview Lane, near Kellogg and Hillside: Clayton Gossett’s house has 31,500 lights on it, all synced to funky, electronica Christmas carol mashups mastered by a musician friend. He’s running the show from 6 p.m. to midnight nightly through the second week of January. Christmas at the McKinneys, 1462 S. Coolidge, near 13th and Woodrow in Riverside: Steve McKinney put up his display almost seven years ago, and it’s just kept growing. It grew so much that he asked his next-door-neighbor if he could spread it on to his property, too. Now, the 100,000-light animated display, which features 24 different programmed songs, is a Wichita favorite. It runs from 5:30 to 10 p.m. Sundays through Thursdays and 5:30 to 11 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays until the weekend after New Year’s. Money raised from donations is split between the Kansas Humane Society and InterFaith ministries.

O Dean Bell Those we love don’t go away, They walk beside us every day, Unseen, unheard, but always near, Still loved, still missed and very dear.

If ever there was a wise man, there is wind on water. If a wise man were to speak, the planet leans toward the sun. If a wise man were to laugh, he could make the world smile. If a wise man had a roof, he would shelter the weary. If a wise man had no roof, he would sleep on the sand, or a boat, or under a tree. The wise man learneth be it from institute, prostitute, or destitute. The wise man shareth all he has, the wise man plays in the mud. Life vicarious, through his tale, the wise man travels on. We miss the wise man. We Love You, Mudman Mom, Family & Friends





















Grandson’s bullying behavior needs evaluation DEAR ABBY: Our 7-year-old grandson has been a handful since he was able to walk. He has been sneaky and has told lies for as long as any of us can remember. He has been suspended from school more than 10 times for various things. He stole several hundred dollars from his mom’s purse and took it to school so he would have money to buy snacks. He stays awake longer than everyone else in the house so he can take things and hide them in his closet. He knows what he does is wrong, but it doesn’t bother him. He is also abusive to his disabled sister. It is hard to imagine that a 7-year-old could give hatefilled looks that you don’t even see from adults. I’m afraid at the rate he is going, he will seriously hurt someone or be hurt himself. He also has a very big heart. That is why we don’t understand what is going wrong in this little boy’s head. Please help if you can.

The first is that some obituaries are actually taken from the eulogy, which may have been written prior to the death by someone in the family. If the obituary was written by an employee of a newspaper, the information may have been taken as part of a standard list of questions about the deceased and any survivors. Frankly, I think it would be more suitable if the musician’s name was included on the program. If it hasn’t been included, there is nothing rude about telling the officiant or a family member how much you enjoyed the music and asking who provided it.

BRIDGE/FRANK STEWART Cy the Cynic says there are some things you just shouldn’t do: Never hire a color-blind electrician, never hammer nails into an explosive, and never get a tattoo from a guy named Nervous Eddie. To that I can add that when you’re declarer, you shouldn’t play even one card until you have an idea of how you will make your contract. Your plan may be imperfect, but any plan is better than none. Today’s West, having overcalled in spades, led the queen against six diamonds. South threw a club on dummy’s ace ... and then started to think. Finally he drew trumps and led a heart to the queen, winning, and another heart. West took the jack and led another spade, and South threw another club on the king, ruffed dummy’s last spade and ruffed his king of hearts in dummy. Declarer then faced a guess for the queen of clubs. He correctly placed West with 6-3-1-3 pattern and recalled that West had bid. So South led a club to his ace and back to dummy’s jack. He thought he was playing with the odds, but East produced the queen. South could spare himself some grief if he planned at Trick One. He must play a low spade from dummy, deferring his discards, and ruff in his hand. He draws trumps and leads a heart toward the queen. West has no winning defense. If he takes the ace, dummy plays low, and South can discard a club from dummy on the king of hearts. If instead West plays low, the queen wins, and declarer discards his last two hearts on the A-K of spades and can afford to misguess in clubs.

Fabled, diverse Jerusalem is full of history B efore Columbus, many maps of the world showed Jerusalem as the center of the world. Jerusalem – holy, treasured, and long fought over by the three great monotheistic religions – has been destroyed and rebuilt more than a dozen times. Its fabled old-town walls corral a tangle of colorful holy sites, and more than 30,000 residents – most with a deep-seated reason to live so close to such hallowed ground. Jerusalem’s tiny historic core, a dense and complex old town, is contained within a mighty two-mile-long Ottoman wall. The old city within is divided into four distinct quarters: Armenian, Christian, Jewish and Muslim. During my visit, I found that the old town is fraught with endless little struggles. For example, the volume of the call to prayer at local mosques is turned up high – some residents think it’s to make a statement and to annoy the Jews. And Jews buy a house in what is historically the Muslim quarter and festoon it with Israeli flags. But the fascination of Jerusalem isn’t limited to its old town within the walls. Well beyond them lies the ultraOrthodox Jewish neighborhood of Mea She’arim. Kiosks sell posters of leading rabbis. Each rabbi has his own following, and the rabbi you

RICK STEVES TRAVELS IN EUROPE follow influences how you live and dress. Since this population takes the Shabbat (Saturday) very seriously, Friday is a huge day as all are busy preparing for their holy day of rest. Some Israelis see these fundamentalist Jews as leaders of their faith, and others see them in a less flattering light. One secular local shared with me his opinion of the ultra-Orthodox men whose studies are subsidized by the state and through donations: “To these Hassidic Jews, I – with my modern ways – am the enemy. Yet, he said: “They don’t work. Our taxes pay for them to just sit around and learn the Torah. Their job is to be religious.” He explained, “They speak Yiddish because they think Hebrew is not for small talk. It’s a holy language.” The religious scene in Jerusalem is complicated even for tourists. Before planning our day, my guide asked me my religion. Local guides know that, among Christians interested in seeing Jesus’ tomb,

Rick Steves /

Jerusalem’s Dome of the Rock marks the site where Jews believe Abraham was preparing to sacrifice his son Isaac and where Muslims believe the Prophet Muhammad journeyed to heaven. most Protestants prefer the burial chamber outside the walls in the Garden Tomb, while Catholics prefer the tomb in the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. While I’m Lutheran, this is one case where I would definitely go with the Catholics. The Church of the Holy Sepulcher is built upon the summit of Golgotha, where Jesus was crucified. Because it’s holy for all kinds of Christians, who see things differently and don’t communicate very well, it’s a cluttered religious hodgepodge of various zones – each controlled by a different sect. There are chapels for Greek Orthodox, Franciscans, Coptic Chris-

tians, Armenians, and so on – each run by a different religious community. While that church is important, the city’s overall religious focal point is Temple Mount – considered by many to be the closest place on earth to God in heaven. That’s why Jews believe Abraham came here to sacrifice his son, Isaac. The golden Dome of the Rock shrine marks its summit. For Muslims, this rock marks the spot where the Prophet Muhammad journeyed to heaven. It is the third most holy place in Islam. Muslims have worshipped here since the mid-600s, yet the first Jewish temple was built on the mount in the 10th century

B.C., according to Jewish Scriptures. The Western Wall, the holiest place on earth for Jews, wasn’t designed to be that way. About 2,000 years ago, it was just the retaining wall that supported the main Jewish temple which stood upon Temple Mount. When the temple was destroyed by the Romans in A.D. 70, the Jewish people went into exile. Over the centuries, throughout the Diaspora, Jews returning to Jerusalem came here – to all that was left of their temple – to pray and mourn its destruction. That’s why it’s often called the Wailing Wall. The wall is divided into a men’s section and a women’s section. As part of their ritual, Jews place prayers printed on paper into cracks in the wall and stand where they’ve stood since ancient times to pray. A local Christian told me, “We like to believe that, while God is everywhere, all prayers go

CHRISTOPHER ELLIOTT TRAVEL TROUBLESHOOTER which is always a good idea with a third-party booking, even when it’s a travel agent you personally know. Similarly, it’s a good idea to phone your airline or car rental company to confirm a reservation. But what if you forget? David Eccleston, a retired IT worker from Fort Lauderdale, Fla., recently neglected to confirm his tour of Scottish castles and gardens. “It turns out that that particular tour had been canceled about two months before, and our agent did not inform us,” he says. He complained to a manager at the tour company and expected to be given an insincere apology and an unusable voucher. But that’s not what happened. The owner offered Eccleston his car and driver, who took the couple on a VIP tour of Scotland’s castles. A similar thing happened to Rita Whitt, a retired teacher from Bonney Lake, Wash. On a recent trip to Moscow, she’d paid a lot of money for a tour that included a performance of the famous Moscow Circus, but when she arrived at the pick-up area, “everything was shuttered tight.” So she improvised. She asked for the location of the circus and found that it was performing across town, in another part of Moscow. “A local couple who spoke French, but not English, pushed me onto a city bus crammed with people going home from work,” she remembers. “They said something in Russian to the crowded masses, and about 30 minutes later, I was literally pushed off the bus, right in front of where the circus was being held.” Sometimes improvising works, sometimes not. When Shaun Kavanaugh pre-paid for a room at a Sleep Inn in New York recently, he showed up only to discover that the property hadn’t opened yet. Hotels routinely begin accepting reservations before they open in anticipation of their opening date. But when they miss their target opening date, as Kavanaugh’s hotel had, it can leave guests homeless. Kavanaugh, who works for a theme park in Orlando, contacted the Sleep Inn’s

corporate owner and asked it to find him a comparable hotel room. But it refused, agreeing only to pay the difference between any hotel room he found on his own and his original rate. “I ended up having to drive 45 minutes over to New Jersey,” he says. Of course, you can take all the steps to make sure that the product you booked exists – work with a reliable travel agent, call to confirm, and ask for a real-time resolution – and still come up short. Which brings us back to Hoybook, the traveler who paid for a room at a hotel that had been closed. Orbitz initially wouldn’t stop its collection efforts, so I contacted the online agency on Hoybook’s behalf. Separately, Hoybook also reported the matter to his state

What to do when your hotel doesn’t exist For just $89 a night, the all-suite hotel in Killeen, Texas, promised Steven Hoybook and his family “Europeanstyle luxury” – an offer that seemed too good to pass up. But Hoybook wishes that he had. When he and his family arrived, they found the hotel’s windows and doors shuttered. “They were out of business,” says Hoybook, who lives in Minneapolis. He couldn’t reach Orbitz, the site through which he’d booked the room, so the family found accommodations at a nearby Marriott, paying $111 a night for a smaller room. When Hoybook finally reached the online travel agency by phone the next day, a representative “seemed sympathetic, leading us to believe that they would reverse the charge for the closed hotel,” he recalls. But after months of back-and-forth, during which the Hoybooks formally disputed the credit card charge for their first hotel, Orbitz referred their bill to a collection agency. The Hoybooks are hardly alone. Every day, travelers appear at the front door of a hotel that no longer exists, check in for a flight that was canceled long ago or for a tour that isn’t running. Someone forgot to tell them about it. Fortunately, you can take a few preventive steps to make sure that it doesn’t happen to you, and even if it does, the fix is usually easy. Step one: Work with an agent you trust, either on- or offline. “If a traveler is working with a professional travel agent, he or she will never arrive at a destination – or embarkation point – only to find that the product doesn’t exist,” says Steve Loucks, a spokesman for Travel Leaders Group, a travel agency consortium. “That’s because the suppliers with whom we work are carefully vetted in advance, and they’re usually ones with which we’ve had established relationships for a considerable period of time.” Online travel agencies such as Orbitz, Expedia and Travelocity also have safeguards in place to ensure that the products they represent exist. In Hoybook’s case, something “slipped through the cracks,” an Orbitz representative says. “And in the automated world we all live in, this got kicked to collections in error.” Had Hoybook been able to reach someone at Orbitz on the evening of check-in, a representative would have promptly rebooked the family to a comparable hotel. But a customer can ensure that a hotel is open by calling it to confirm the reservation,

through Jerusalem (as if it were a cell-phone tower), and the Holy Spirit comes down to us via Jerusalem.” As he continued, I realized he was spinning a joke. He said, “There’s a golden phone with a direct connection to God at the Vatican. To make a call, it costs $1,000. And there’s a similar golden phone offering the same service here in Jerusalem, where the same call cost only 25 cents.” When I asked why, he said, “It’s a local call.”

The lineage of great Chiefs kick returners is as old as the franchise itself.

Smith was a puntreturning terror in the late 1970s and early ’80s. Powerful and fast Tamarick Vanover was a game-breaker in 1990s, and Dante Hall dodged and darted to a franchise-record 11 kick returns for touchdowns — six kickoffs and five punts — in the 2000s.

Resolute and determined. Maybe even mean and nasty, from the harderedged crowd. Cotton — with a lower-case c — is what the sheets that help us sleep at night are made of. Tekele Cotton was Tennessee’s worst nightmare Saturday afternoon at Intrust Bank Arena. Like a commando rescuing his troops, Cotton took over the game in the second half, which is when he scored all 19 of his points, had four of his five rebounds and three of his four assists. He went a little crazy at the midway point of the half and it started with a ridiculously athletic blocked shot on the interior that most in the crowd of 14,356 couldn’t wait to get home to see on replay. That block not only saved two points, it propelled No. 12 Wichita State on a 17-5 run that turned a three-point deficit into a ninepoint lead over just more than five

They have lived above fireplaces and in closets, under custom-designed lights and under garbage, polished by caretakers with soft brushes and dropped by drunks. Each December since 1935, a 45-pound bronze statue with a wood base has been handed to its newest winner, and for all time, its recipient isn’t just the season’s best college football player; he is the Heisman Trophy winner. The Stanley Cup, given each year to the National Hockey League champion, spends at least some time with each player – visiting homes, bars, battlegrounds and swimming pools – before it’s returned and reissued to the next winning team. But a Heisman, sports’ most prestigious and recognizable individual award, is the winner’s to keep. And though it’s not exactly explained this way, each man is free to do with it whatever he wishes. “Each one,” 1958 Heisman winner Pete Dawkins says, “probably has a different saga.” So the assignment, handed down nearly a year ago, was to locate the physical whereabouts – and document some of the adventures – of each of the 78 winners’ copies of the Heisman Trophy before another one is issued Saturday evening. Each winner’s school is issued a copy, and years ago, winners could request multiple trophies – ’49 winner Leon Hart once owned three Heismans, a son says – but there’s only one each winner poses with in New York and, as tradition has it, carries onto the plane home, toward its new life. Of the 58 living Heisman winners, 32 retain full-time possession of their trophy, displaying it on mantels or custom cases or even boxed in storage rooms. Nineteen overall Heismans are with family members, nine are on display in museums or restaurants and six have been sold at least once. This is where they are now, but where have they been? Eddie George possessed his Heisman less than 24 hours before its outstretched fingers were severed by an airport metal detector. Johnny Lattner, the 1953 winner, lends his Heisman to classes and businesses; it spent part of November in an Irish pub at Chicago’s Midway International Airport. The trophy Howard Cassady won in 1955 was once stolen and, because it contained no gold or silver, thrown away. But the 1968 Heisman’s life proved more complicated. The whereabouts of O.J. Simpson’s trophy were, for months, unknown, and the rumors of its location – and whether a trophy now existed at all – were at times both believable and ridiculous. For a long time, all that was known was that, in 1999, Simpson auctioned his Heisman to pay toward a civilsuit judgment after the 1994 deaths of Simpson’s ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and Ron Goldman. A flamboyant 47-year-old man from Pennsylvania bought the trophy for $255,500 because, he told reporters at the time, he hoped to impress his girlfriend. The man, a steel wholesaler named Tom Kriessman, held a news conference, where he taped his name over Simpson’s. Then Kriessman – and the Heisman Trophy he purchased – just disappeared.

man, a believable one was that Kriessman, the man who bought it at auction 14 years ago, melted down the bronze. Kriessman owned a steel company outside Philadelphia, was seen after buying the trophy as an eccentric, and anyway, here were several people calling Rogers, claiming to have bought a chunk of what was left of Simpson’s trophy. Rogers says he passed on the offers, each asking for a few hundred dollars. But he says he fielded enough of those kinds of calls that he has come to believe Simpson’s Heisman is spread across the country in dozens of bronze pieces, each about the size of a ball bearing. This 45-year-old trophy was becoming its own legend, and like so many, this was just the latest tall tale. ■ ■ ■ File photo /

Wichita’s Barry Sanders won the 1988 Heisman while a junior at Oklahoma State. The Washington Post reports that Sanders’ agent, Jeff Bernstein, says the trophy is located at Sanders’ mother’s home in Wichita. ■ ■ ■ When Jason White returned to Norman, Okla., shortly after the Heisman ceremony in December 2003, he set the trophy on the floor in the closet of his apartment near campus. The Sooners quarterback was a college student, and college students sometimes store precious things in humble places. Beer cans are icons; a grandfather’s pocket watch is ordinary. The weeks came and went after the ceremony, and sure enough, White’s Heisman was soon buried under a pile of clothes, emerging only when a visitor asked to see it. Then it would return to the floor, and occasionally his baby daughter, Tinley, would crawl toward the trophy. One day, she pushed up on the Heisman’s base and grabbed its outstretched right arm. The fingers on her other hand wrapped around the trophy’s bent knee, and Tinley came to her feet, steadying her legs and finally letting go to stand for the first time. This is the thing about the Heisman: Its value to winners isn’t restricted to onfield memories or a once-ayear ceremony in New York. To many, it represents a life that has changed and a name that resonates for decades. Charlie Ward, who won the ’93 Heisman, hasn’t seen his trophy since shortly after the ceremony. He loaned it to the public library in Thomasville, Ga., his home town, believing its purpose was greater than sitting on a shelf in his home. It’s on display near the children’s books, and Ward says that’s a good place for it; maybe it inspires another small-town youngster to chase his or her goals, no matter how extraordinary. On a mild November Saturday, George Rogers, the 1980 winner, stands outside the University of South Carolina’s Williams-Brice Stadium. He poses for photographs and hands his Heisman to anyone with at least a $5 donation to his foundation. His trophy’s base is chipped and dented, the black paint flecked, but the bronze has somehow survived dozens of drops – by children who are unprepared for its weight, for adults full of liquid strength. “They always think they can handle it,” Rogers says. “… A lot of times when you’re intoxicated, you just try to grab it. I’m like: ‘Whoa, whoa, whoa, you’ve got to

handle it with care.’ “ Rogers, the first member of his family to attend college, uses the donations to pay expenses for first-generation college students. He says an education gave him the chance to win the Heisman, and now his Heisman gives others a chance at an education. He says he has spent most fall Saturdays here, outside the stadium’s northwest corner and near the road named for him, for 22 years. So many Saturdays, so many photos, so many smiles – even after the Heisman’s latest fall to the pavement. “I know what first-generation is,” he says. “You’ve got to start somewhere.” ■ ■ ■ In early August, a memorabilia collector calls from Arkansas, saying he might know something about Simpson’s lost Heisman. John Rogers once owned Charles White’s 1979 Heisman, a trophy that has changed hands at least three times, beginning when White auctioned it in 2000 to settle tax debts. Rogers has since sold the ’79 Heisman after a failed attempt to return it to White, one part poetic justice and another part stunt. “I’ve probably gotten a million dollars in free publicity,” he says of owning White’s Heisman. Rogers says a group of alumni from the University of Southern California called years ago, asking what it would take to return White’s trophy to him. Rogers says he was willing to relinquish it for what he paid, and the group seemed interested. But when they learned that White had sold it – Rogers says they initially believed the IRS had seized and auctioned the trophy – the alumni backed away, and Rogers sold it instead to a private buyer. “Would’ve been a hell of a story,” Rogers says. He became known for owning White’s trophy anyway, taking a few calls to gauge interest in another Heisman once awarded to a Trojans running back. Simpson’s Heisman is arguably the most infamous, and its value would reflect the story told alongside it. And so Rogers, a talkative man, listened – though he heard something unusual. They weren’t selling Simpson’s trophy; they were selling pieces of it. Among the fates that supposedly befell the 1968 Heis-

Tom Kriessman answers the phone at his office, where his company still buys and sells excess steel and aluminum by the coil and gauge, clearing space for companies needing the extra room. “My story,” Kriessman says, “is very boring.” He has heard the many theories of what became of O.J. Simpson’s Heisman Trophy, whether it involves destroying it, selling it or whether it was the Heisman that Simpson was looking for when, in 2007, he entered the Las Vegas hotel room of two memorabilia collectors in what he said was an attempt to retrieve personal belongings. Simpson, who didn’t reply to a letter sent to him by The Washington Post, was convicted of armed robbery and kidnapping and is serving a nine-to-33-year sentence in a Nevada prison. Kriessman also chuckles at the difficulty in locating him, his former business and past business partners. This difficulty, he says, is no coincidence. “I’m keeping a low profile,” he says. And so, as it turns out, is the Heisman he bought 14 years ago. Kriessman says the trophy is intact, but rather than displaying it, he stores the ’68 Heisman in a rented safety deposit box at a Philadelphia bank. The attention he received in ’99 and calls from collectors and journalists compelled him to shun the spotlight. Now, he says, even close friends have no idea he owns Simpson’s Heisman. He will decline a request to visit Philadelphia, conduct an interview and see the trophy. That, he says, would be too much. “I guess I was a little bit of a different type of person back then,” the 61-year-old says. “As you get older, some people change.” He says he hasn’t visited the trophy in a long time, and he says he has no idea when it'll next touch fresh oxygen. Kriessman figures someday he'll sell it, though he isn’t looking forward to the attention that'll bring. Whether winning a Heisman or buying or selling one, there’s little about a Heisman that’s done quietly. “To be honest with you, it sort of happened that way, and you just get caught up in things sometimes. It sort of snowballed and it happened,” says Kriessman, who’s no longer with the woman he once tried to impress. “I was a lot younger back then and just an attitude about things and was just kind of a fun thing to do. Turns out, it was.”

K-State, Michigan take different paths to 7-5 BY KELLIS ROBINETT The Wichita Eagle

MANHATTAN — Kansas State and Michigan will finish the year in the Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl, but that is where the similarities between their seasons end. K-State went from 2-4, with an unexpected loss to North Dakota State and three straight conference defeats, to 7-5. Michigan went from 5-0, with a signature victory over Notre Dame, to 7-5, losing one agonizing game after another. They have been polar opposites. The Wildcats now have a shot at breaking into the yearend national polls with a strong showing in the postseason. The Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl is their opportunity to add style points to a campaign that already feels successful. “I am proud of my team for turning it around, going 5-1 after we went 2-4,” junior linebacker Jonathan Truman said. “It was just important to us to get things corrected and to turn the season around in a positive way.” For the Wolverines, the Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl is their final shot at redemption, an opportunity to salvage an otherwise regrettable season. “It's exciting for our team to have the opportunity to finish with one more game,” Michigan defensive coordinator Greg Mattison said. “It's been a disappointing season in

Kansas State coach Bill Snyder doesn’t want his players to feel pressure. He views a bowl game as a credit to the team’s season. “I think it is a positive accomplishment.” some ways, because we've lost a number of games by very close scores. But playing in this game, playing one last game, gives us an opportunity to do what we have to do.” Simply put: K-State coach Bill Snyder and Michigan coach Brady Hoke will use different motivational techniques as they prepare for their Dec. 28 matchup in Tempe, Ariz.

Snyder has already used words like “vacation” and “honor” to describe the Wildcats’ upcoming bowl trip. He wants to win, of course, but he doesn’t need to play the “desperation” card with his players. The time for that is long gone. He would rather them treat this game like any other, and feed off their current momentum.

Carlos Osorio/Associated Press

Michigan coach Brady Hoke’s team began the season with five straight wins and had lofty goals, but a 2-5 finish to the season has changed the Wolverines’ outlook. “I’m pleased certainly for the youngsters in our program and the people that work so hard and commit so much of their time, effort and emotions into this team,” Snyder said of the bowl invite. “Certainly for the fan base, it is important to them, and they like that. For so many, it is the vacation time. I think it is meaningful in that respect. “As it relates to the rest of

college football itself, it is better than not having any other opportunity, for sure. I think it is a positive accomplishment.” The Wolverines are looking forward to the bowl trip, too, but their focus is elsewhere. It’s hard for teams to go from thinking about the Rose Bowl to soaking up the sun before a middle-tier bowl. Though unimpressive victo-

ries over Akron and Connecticut can now be considered signs of bad things to come, Michigan wasn’t that far from away from a 10-win season. Four of its five losses came by four points or less. There was a 43-40 setback at Penn State (in four overtimes) that started the collapse, then a four-point loss to Nebraska, a three-point loss to Iowa and a nail-biting loss to Ohio State that came down to a two-point conversion. Finishing games is Michigan’s new priority. “Whenever you're in a lot of very, very close games, you're either going to be successful or not successful. It comes down to one play usually,” Mattison said. “The Nebraska game, it was a fourth-and-2. The Iowa game, it was a stop, one last stop. Penn State, we thought we won it, but we missed the field goal. “All of those situations, when you want to be a great defense, you try to live up to the reputation that Michigan defense has built over the years, you have to make those stops. That's what we have to do.” One team thrived early. The other excelled late. They ended up taking drastically different paths to the same destination. The Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl will decide which season is better. Reach Kellis Robinett at Follow him on Twitter: @kellisrobinett.

Famous Jameis: Winston collects Heisman Trophy Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston kisses the Heisman Trophy while posing for photographers after winning the trophy Saturday in New York. Winston becomes the 79th winner of the trophy and is the third player out of Florida State to win the award.

BY RALPH D. RUSSO Associated Press

NEW YORK — Jameis Winston left voters no choice but to give him the Heisman Trophy. The Florida State quarterback became the second straight freshman to win the Heisman on Saturday night, earning college football’s most prestigious individual award with a performance so spectacular and dominant that even a criminal investigation couldn’t derail his candidacy. “I cannot explain the feeling that I have inside right now,” Winston said. “I’m so overwhelmed. It’s awesome.” When his name was announced, he popped from his seat and quickly made his way to his mom and dad for hugs and kisses. He smiled and laughed through most of his acceptance speech, but got a little choked up when he talked about his parents. “When you see your mom and your dad and they’ve been struggling through this whole process it was nice to see a smile on their faces,” he said. Winston received 668 firstplace votes and 2,205 points. He finished 1,501 points ahead of Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron for the seventh-largest margin of

victory in Heisman history, despite being left off 115 of the 900 ballots that were returned. Northern Illinois quarterback Jordan Lynch was third, followed by Boston College’s Andre Williams, Texas A&M’s Johnny Manziel and Auburn’s Tre Mason. Manziel was the first freshman to win the Heisman, and was trying to join Ohio State’s Archie Griffin as a two-time winner. Instead, Winston made it two freshman winners in the 79-year history of the Heisman. He

also became the youngest winner at 23 days short of 20. The 19-year-old also was investigated last month for a year-old sexual assault complaint, but no charges were filed and the case was closed four days before Heisman votes were due. “People trusted me and saw us play,” Winston said. Winston is the nation’s top-rated passer and has led the top-ranked Seminoles to a spot in the BCS championship game against No. 2 Auburn on Jan. 6, his birth-

day. The former five-star recruit from Bessemer, Ala., made college football look easy from his very first game. On Labor Day night, on national television, Winston went 25 for 27 for 356 yards and four touchdowns in a victory at Pittsburgh. Winston and Florida State were cruising toward an undefeated season when news broke of an unresolved sexual assault complaint against him made to the Tallahassee Police Department last December. The dormant case was

handed over to the state attorney’s office for a full investigation. A female student at Florida State accused Winston of rape. Winston’s attorney said the sex was consensual. During three weeks of uncertainty, Winston continued to play sensationally, especially in Florida State’s big games against Clemson and Miami, while other contenders stumbled or failed to distinguish themselves. If voters were looking to Manziel or McCarron or Lynch or Williams or even Marcus Mariota of Oregon to give them a good alternative to Winston, it didn’t happen. Mason made a late surge and ended up in New York because of the lack of serious challengers to Winston. The Heisman Trust mission statement says: “The Heisman Memorial Trophy annually recognizes the outstanding college football player whose performance best exhibits the pursuit of excellence with integrity.” It’s a statement that has put the Heisman in awkward situations before. In 2010, Cam Newton played the season under the cloud of an NCAA investigation. He had also had legal troubles while in college. But like Winston, there was no doubt he was the best player and he won

the award. Before last season, Manziel was arrested after being involved in a fight and providing police fake ID. It didn’t stop Johnny Football from winning the Heisman. Reggie Bush had his 2005 Heisman stripped after the NCAA determined he had violated its rules during that season. But the Heisman trust did not ask Billy Cannon and O.J. Simpson to return their Heismans after serving jail time. The accusations against Winston were serious and documents released by the police with the accuser’s allegations were not flattering to him. It probably explains why so many voters left him out of their top three. Last year Manziel appeared on 92 percent of the ballots. Winston appeared on 87 percent this year. There was no doubting his on-the-field credentials. Winston is on pace (190.1) to break Russell Wilson’s record for best passer efficiency rating in a season and set FBS freshman records for yards passing (3,820) and touchdown passes (38). Florida State’s average margin of victory is 42 points, and Winston has spent most of the Seminoles’ fourth quarters resting.

December. But friends told Bleacher Report last month that Belcher had suffered multiple concussions. Other stories emerged that Belcher had become unpredictable and irritable in the months leading up to the murder-suicide and was beginning to drink more – an autopsy showed his blood-alcohol level on the morning of the murder-suicide was more than twice the legal limit in Missouri. These stories matched a lot of what we know about the effects of CTE. Julian Bailes, founder of the Brain Injury Research Institute, has an extensive history of studying the connection between football and brain injuries. “Did he have CTE changes in the brain?” Bailes said. “That’s the question.” Why an examination of Belcher’s brain wasn’t done as part of the autopsy or research shortly after the crime last December is another mystery. Omalu, who discovered CTE in an autopsy of former Steelers and Chiefs center Mike Webster and is the chief medical examiner of San Joaquin

County in California, said that he “would bet one month’s salary that (Belcher) had CTE,” and that the local medical examiner should have performed a test for it. Dan Ferguson, a spokesman for Jackson County, stressed the medical examiner’s job is to determine cause of death. Removal of an organ or tissue strictly for research, Ferguson said, is not allowed. Even so, the brain could have been donated for research at a handful of laboratories around the country. Typically, scientists contact families to ask if they’d be willing to donate the deceased’s brain for research. Belcher’s family was not contacted, Vandever confirmed this week. Contacted by telephone Friday night, Becky Gonzalez, the mother of Kasi Perkins, said the exhumation was news to her. “I was unaware of it,” Gonzalez said, “and I’m doubtful it will solve anything.” Bailes said CTE isn’t normally tied to criminal behavior such as homicide – though there are some cases, most notably the 2007 double mur-

der-suicide involving former professional wrestler Chris Benoit, where CTE was believed to be a contributing factor. Waiting a year or more to examine Belcher’s brain could make any potential research more difficult and perhaps even useless, but Bailes and Omalu each said there could be some important scientific findings. Omalu has performed multiple autopsies on bodies buried longer than Belcher’s, finding clear evidence of Alzheimer’s and various other brain diseases. Some NFL players, including Junior Seau and Dave Duerson, have killed themselves with gunshots to the chest, presumably so their brains could be examined. Belcher shot himself in the head, and the bullet went all the way through. Experts say this does not make an examination impossible. The key points are how well the body and brain were preserved. Belcher’s body was embalmed, and his casket was believed to be buried below the frost line, but it’s far from guaranteed that his brain will be preserved in a way that will

allow for an examination. Bailes stressed that if Belcher’s brain is found to have CTE, it can’t be used as a direct explanation for the murder-suicide last December. Bailes points out that there are horrific and criminal acts committed without the presence of CTE. But there are too many unanswered questions for Belcher’s family to not be curious.

Wildcats try to get season moving forward BY KELLIS ROBINETT The Wichita Eagle

MANHATTAN — Bruce Weber might want to consider a new name for Kansas State’s motion offense. Through nine games, the Wildcats are one of the nation’s lowest-scoring basketball teams, ranking last in the Big 12 in points (65.3), fieldgoal shooting (40.8 percent) and three-point shooting (27 percent). Nationally, they rank no higher than 308th in those statistical categories. Outside of an 87-54 victory over Central Arkansas, KState hasn’t scored more than 71 points. That lack of production has led to three early losses and several close victories against unheralded opponents. The biggest problem can be traced back to the name of Weber’s offense, which he has been teaching throughout his long career. It lacks movement. “This is a game where you have to keep moving the basketball and make the next play until they break down,” Weber said. “You have got to

Kansas State coach Bruce Weber is looking for more movement from the Wildcats’ motion offense. They play host to Troy at Bramlage Coliseum on Sunday. move side to side, you have got to curl, you have got to use back screens. ... You have to keep cutting and moving.” Indeed, constant moving is the key to a motion offense. When it is correctly executed, a steady stream of screens, cuts and passes creates open shots and easy points. When it is poorly executed, players become stagnant and struggle to score.

Too often, K-State players have reverted to simply standing around when opponents challenge them or switch to a zone defense. “We have got to get moving more,” freshman guard Marcus Foster said. “Sometimes when offense isn’t going our way, we just sit there. We have a lot of young guys and people playing new roles. We have to get moving from the

start.” Otherwise the only players with open shots are guards open on the perimeter. That hasn’t helped the Wildcats so far. Take away Foster, who has led the team by making a pedestrian 21 of 59 shots from beyond the arc, and K-State doesn’t have anyone capable of spreading defenses. Will Spradling, Shane Southwell and Nigel Johnson, three of the team’s best other shooters, have made 22 of 92 from three-point range. If those shots start falling, K-State’s offense could improve quickly. But the Wildcats have the look of a poorshooting team. It even struggles from the foul line, shooting 62.7 percent. “Overall, we do have to shoot a better free-throw percentage if we want to close out games,” junior forward Thomas Gipson said. “If everybody made their free throws we wouldn’t have to worry about being up by two with two seconds left. We all have to play our part on that one.” Until then, the Wildcats will focus on getting the ball to

BY JOHN ZENOR Associated Press

AUSTIN – Mack Brown, the Texas football coach who led the Longhorns to the 2005 national title and ranks second at the school in career victories, is stepping down after 16 seasons. In a statement released by the school Saturday night, the coach who was brought to Texas to revive a dormant program in 1997 acknowledged it was time for a change after a 30-20 record, including 18-17 in the Big 12, over the last four seasons. Texas went 8-4 this season and lost the Big 12 title to Baylor in the final game of the regular season. The 62-year-old Brown will finish his Texas career in the Alamo Bowl against Oregon on Dec. 30. “It’s been a wonderful ride. Now, the program is again being pulled in different directions, and I think the time is right for a change,” Brown said. “I love the University of Texas, all of its supporters, the great fans and everyone that played and coached here … It is the best coaching job and the premier football program in America. “I sincerely want to get back to the top and that’s why I’m stepping down after the bowl game. I hope with some new energy, we can get this thing rolling again.” Brown led the Longhorns through a run of dominance from 2001-09 when the Texas went 101-16, won two Big 12 titles and twice played for the national championship. He has 158 victories at Texas, No. 2 behind the late Darrell Royal, who won 167 in 20 seasons with the Longhorns. Brown is 244-121-1 overall in 29 years as a head coach. “This is a very difficult day for everyone in the University of Texas family,” Texas president Bill Powers said. “Mack Brown is one of the best football coaches in the country.” The school scheduled a news conference Sunday for Brown, and to discuss a search for his replacement to take over after the Alamo Bowl in San Antonio. Brown' only losing season at Texas was in 2010, when the Longhorns fell to 5-7 after playing for the 2009

Mack Brown’s Longhorns won the 2005 national championship, but Texas was only 18-17 in the Big 12 over the last three seasons. season national championship. But Brown’s inability to win more Big 12 championships – Oklahoma won or shared eight league titles from 2000-12 – and four straight years of at least four losses fractured the fan base and prompted calls for his departure. Texas expected a return to national prominence in 2013 behind a team that returned 19 starters. Even Brown talked up his chances to compete for a national championship again. But Texas started 1-2 to rekindle dissatisfaction that would fester all season, particularly after revelations that in January, several members of the school’s board of regents and a prominent donor were involved in efforts to lure Alabama coach Nick Saban to the Longhorns. The possibility that Texas could hire Saban to take over for Brown ended Friday night when Alabama announced it had agreed to a contract extension with its coach. Texas’ announcement that Brown would retire came less than 24 hours later. Brown was considered the perfect fit at Texas when the Longhorns hired him to replace the divisive John Mackovic. The affable Brown immediately won over Longhorns fans at his introductory news conference when he flashed the traditional “Hook'em Horns” sign and urged fans to “come early, be loud and stay late.” Mackovic’s blazer-polished image never seemed to fit the Texas football personality. In Brown, the Longhorns found a kindred spirit – a bootwearing Southerner, accent all, who talked about restor-

He says it’s ment. about the team and about


ing Texas’ swagger. Brown did what no Texas coach had been able to do for 20 years: unite a fan base that had been split since Royal left after the 1976 season. Brown embraced Royal’s legacy to help win over fans aching a return to glory, and just as important, he embraced Texas high school football coaches, immediately establishing a talent pipeline from Texas’ rich recruiting fields straight into Austin. “Sally and I were brought to Texas 16 years ago to pull together a football program that was divided. With a lot of passion, hard work and determination from the kids, coaches and staff, we did that,” Brown said. “We built a strong football family, reached great heights and accomplished a lot, and for that, I thank everyone.” And he won. In Brown’s first season in 1998, the Longhorns went 9-3, beat Oklahoma and Texas A&M and won the Cotton Bowl as tailback Ricky Williams tore through defenses to win the Heisman Trophy. Brown’s greatest run came from 2001-09. Texas won 10 games every year in that stretch and from 2004-09, the Longhorn went 69-9 behind quarterbacks Vince Young and Colt McCoy. Young led the Longhorns to the national championship in 2005, scoring the winning touchdown on fourth down in the final minute of a wild 41-38 victory, the Longhorns’ first undisputed national title in 36 years. McCoy led them back to the title game five years later, but Texas lost to Alabama.

But there were others, obviously, with a player who scored 19 points in one half, though he’s not regarded as a big scoring threat. Stop right there, Marshall said. He wasn’t surprised Cotton went on a scoring spree based on what he saw in a Friday afternoon practice at Intrust. With leading scorer Ron Baker hobbling on a badlyswollen ankle, one that gave doubt to whether he would play Saturday, Cotton took on a larger practice role. “Baker’s in a chair at courtside and it looks like several golf balls right under his skin on his ankle,” Marshall said. “And Cotton was a man pos-

want to evolve into the NCAA title contenders that so many envisioned, Embiid will need to be playing 30 minutes per game. But the more Embiid plays, Self says, the more it’s clear that his time in Lawrence could be limited to just one season. “We need to play him all the time,” Self said. “But the more he plays, the less time he’s going to spend in Lawrence. “So I’m not sure it’s a real wise decision for me to do this. But he’s got to play." The last line came with a sly smile as Self sat inside the Sprint Center late on Saturday night. Kansas (7-3) snapped a two-game losing streak after consecutive setbacks at Colorado and Florida. And Self, of course, is not the type of coach who would sabotage something great in the present to hold onto Embiid for a little more time in the future. But if you watched Embiid on the floor of the Sprint Center, grabbing six rebounds, blocking four shots, and doing most of the damage during a dominating second half, you can’t blame Self if the thought crossed his mind. “I wanted it bad,” Embiid said. “I wanted to play.” It had been a long, grueling month for Kansas, the kind of stretch that could leave doubts in the mind of any young basketball player. Before Saturday, KU had suffered three losses in four games, played five games away from home, and traveled nearly 7,000 miles round trip since its last home game, a blowout victory over Towson on Nov. 22.

Rich Sugg/Kansas City Star

Kansas coach Bill Self directs his players during the first half against New Mexico at the Sprint Center in Kansas City on Saturday night. More than anything, Self kept repeating a similar line: His young Jayhawks just needed a little confidence, and maybe that would help them break out of their recent down-cycle. On Saturday night inside the Sprint Center, the Jayhawks siphoned all the confidence it needed from Embiid, who shook off two early fouls and scored nine points during a 17-9 run in the opening minutes of the second half. "They wanted to throw me the ball and then score," Embiid said. "So that’s what I needed to do.” Embiid’s night supplemented a resurgent performance from Perry Ellis, who finished with 21 points and nine rebounds. But it was Embiid who left the Sprint Center crowd in a momentary state of awe when he pulled of a hesitating, shimmy move that could only be described as Hakeem Olajuwon’s “Dream Shake.” “You could see my facial expression when I was on the court,” said freshman guard Wayne Selden, who added 10 points. “You see him do it every day in practice, and I finally liked when he brought it to the game.”

South Dakota. If he stays aggressive, his scoring will increase. Bruce Weber is hoping to get more offense out of Spradling. The senior guard was scoreless against South Dakota.

It wasn’t the only moment that lifted Self’s spirits. Freshman swingman Andrew Wiggins finished with 11 points, including 10 in the first half. And junior point guard Naadir Tharpe, who replaced freshman Frank Mason in the starting lineup, finished with eight points and nine assists, finally looking like the steady veteran that Kansas needs. “He knows beyond a shadow of a doubt that (I was) disappointed in him,” Self said. “Not in his play as much, but in the ownership and how he’s helping the other guys. He knows. And that was the thing I’ve been trying to beat into him. And I think he responded really well.” It has been more than two decades since a Kansas team lost four of five — you have to go back to Roy Williams’ first season in 1988-89 — and this KU team wasn’t exactly ready to be hit with that distinction. But if you ask Self if he’s happy he scheduled as tough as he did, he’s still not quite sure. The Jayhawks haven’t played a game at Allen Fieldhouse in more than three weeks — even if the Sprint Center did provide a nice homecourt advantage. But for one night, Kansas finally notched a confidence-building victory against a solid team. And the rest of the country got a glimpse of what Embiid can mean for the future. “I’d rather get confidence from beating good teams,” Self said. “But if you’re not going to be them, I’d rather get confidence from winning. And we put ourselves in a position where obviously that wasn’t going to be as easy to do with young kids.” Reach Rustin Dodd at Follow him on Twitter: @rustindodd.

Maybe it was a matter of, ‘OK, Ron’s out, we need something else than just great defense and rebounding.’ But Tekele took over our practice (Friday) like I have never seen him play. “I actually texted him yesterday and asked him who was that guy he brought to practice.

Tharpe gets start

Saturday night. He finished with eight points and nine assists, cutting into freshman Frank Mason’s minutes. Mason played just 6 minutes, and KU coach Bill Self said the decision largely stemmed from Tharpe’s ability to do more damage against a zone defense. The Jayhawks have struggled against zones over the last few weeks, and Self said Mason is still learning how to guide an offense against a zone.

thony Early missed 5 of 6 three-point attempts. The Shockers needed an ignition and Cotton went up in flames. “He was all over the court,” VanVleet said of Cotton. “He was rebounding, scoring, playing defense. He broke through for us when we really needed some scoring.” Cotton, though, was quick to point out the 11-point, 14-rebound breakout game of junior center Darius Carter. I swear, Cotton didn’t comprehend what all the fuss was about. “I just tried hard not to get too frustrated in the first half,” he said. “And to let the game come to me. That’s really all I was trying to do.”

I don’t know. It didn’t seem like the game came to Cotton. It seems like he took it, locked it up and threw away the key. Wichita State was in a fight to become the first Shocker team in history to open 10-0. For a while, it didn’t look like it was going to happen against a big, physical, quick Tennessee team that stood toe to toe with WSU. Until, that is, something tough and fierce hit the Vols between the eyes. It was Cotton. Tekele Cotton. Reach Bob Lutz at 316-268-6597 or Follow him on Twitter: @boblutz.



Cotton, Shockers out-slug Tennessee BY PAUL SUELLENTROP The Wichita Eagle

Wichita State is 10-0 for the first time. That’s 10 wins the hard way, which is the only way the Shockers would want things. They won on the road. They won on neutral courts and Saturday TENNESSEE 61 they bullied a NO. 12 WSU 70 bunch of SEC bruisers. With junior Tekele Cotton turning in a game-changing defense-tooffense highlight sequence, the 12th-ranked Shockers defeated Tennessee 70-61 at Intrust Bank Arena in front of a near-sellout crowd of 14,356. “When I got here for shootaround, they were already drinking beer,” WSU guard Fred VanVleet said. “They were definitely ready. It’s the same energy that we’ve grown to love and appreciate from our fans.” 10-0. It is near impossible to crank up the excitement level after a Final Four season, but the Shockers are giving it a great run. Beating the Volunteers (6-3) might sneak the Shockers into the Associated Press top 10 (they are No. 8 in the coaches poll) and convince any remaining skeptics who wanted to see them beat another name-brand opponent. “They’re used to winning now,” WSU coach Gregg Mar-

Darius Carter came off the bench to score 11 points and grab a season-high 14 rebounds and block two shots. Cleanthony Early added 13 points, again making a crucial three-pointer late in the game. Tennessee guard Jordan McRae scored 26 points.

While significant, this is a team that got used to big wins and regrouping a long time ago. “It feels good, but we’ve got another game Tuesday (Alabama), an even bigger game on the road,” VanVleet said. “It feels good, but we’ve got a lot more to do.” On Saturday, they faced down an experienced team with high expectations desperate for a quality win. They out-rebounded one of the nation’s best rebounding teams. They didn’t need a big

game from leading scorer Ron Baker, who gutted out 32 minutes with a badly sprained left ankle. VanVleet scored eight points in the first five minutes and didn’t score again. “Key plays, key blocks, key baskets,” Tennessee coach Cuonzo Martin said. “They made their free throws.” Cotton, all agreed, grabbed control of the game late in the second half with an 11-second sequence that summed up WSU’s effort. Tennessee broke WSU’s

pressure and 6-foot-8 Jeronne Maymon got the ball alone — it appeared — and about to build on a 44-43 lead. Instead of dunking, Maymon tried to bank the ball off the backboard and Cotton jumped from the middle of the lane to block the shot. He altered Robert Hubbs’ follow shot and took an outlet pass from Carter. Cotton beat every defender, save one, to the other end of the court and Euro-stepped his way to a basket and a foul shot. “I just saw him open and did everything I could to stop him from making a basket,” Cotton said. “I felt the momentum. There was still a lot on the clock, so we had to keep pushing.” With 9:04 remaining, WSU led 46-44 and never trailed again. “A big-time block,” Martin said. “The game started to turn from there.” After a Tennessee miss, Cotton drew another foul and made a free throw. He missed the second and Carter swooped in for the rebound. His bank shot gave WSU a 49-44 lead and completed an 8-0 run. The Volunteers cut the lead to 51-49 before Cotton went to work again. He made a three from the wing for a 54-49 lead. His free throws made it 56-49 with 5:20 to play. His bounce pass set up Chadrack Lufile for a layup

and the crowd went crazy with a 58-49 lead, forcing a Vols timeout with 4:37 remaining. What little Cotton left undone in the second half, Carter cleaned up. He scored all 11 of his points in the second half and grabbed five rebounds. His efforts on the backboards led the way for WSU, which out-rebounded the Volunteeers 36-31. Tennessee entered the game out-rebounding opponents by 10 a game. Marshall knew that handling Maymon and Jarnell Stokes, Tennessee’s twin 6-8 roadblocks, was a must. Neither reached double figures in scoring and Stokes, limited by fouls, grabbed four rebounds, less than half his average. Carter played a major role, matching their power with his quickness and wingspan. “They are so strong and they spread out and they get great position,” Marshall said. “So we worked on it diligently for a couple of days. We try not to leave any stone unturned when it comes to the grind of securing the ball.” WSU went 9-0 last season before losing at Tennessee. It also started 9-0 in 2006-07, 2004-05 and 1920-21.

Arena an added enticement for Wichita State


hen Wichita State men’s basketball coaches pick up recruits at the airport, their first stop is often Intrust Bank Arena, where they can show off their onetwo punch of facilities versatility. Like a downtown arena with luxury suites suitable for NBA (exhibition) games? Wichita State plays a yearly game in that kind of place. Searching for an on-campus home with practice gym and a history of loud and enthusiastic crowds? Koch Arena is the next stop. Intrust Bank Arena, WSU’s second home for the past four seasons, continues to pay off. WSU uses it as a recruiting aid, adding a bit of big-time flavor most schools lack. As Saturday’s game against Tennessee proved, the arena also helps the Shockers schedule opponents. A team reluctant to venture inside Koch Arena might be tempted into a game downtown. “We believe for some folks, that’s a difference-maker,” WSU athletic director Eric Sexton said. For all those reasons and more, Sexton and coach Gregg Marshall are fans of playing downtown. Shocker senior Cleanthony Early remembers his stop at Intrust Bank Arena. Coaches had his jersey ready for viewing. They told Early they use the downtown arena as a lure for top opponents and that it holds 15,000 fans.

PAUL SUELLENTROP WICHITA STATE “It was pretty cool, the fact we had an alternate gym and if we ever got a big-time game they highlighted that we would be playing there,” Early said. Junior Darius Carter also liked the near-NBA quality of the arena. “It’s a beautiful arena,” he said. “It’s good to play in a big atmosphere with a bunch of fans screaming at you so you can get used to playing away where they have a bunch of fans.” Without Intrust Bank Arena, Saturday’s game with Tennessee likely doesn’t happen. When talks started, WSU offered to start the series on the road and play their home game downtown. That pitch will continue as WSU works on next season’s schedule. It could place games against Alabama, Saint Louis or Tulsa there next season. But it will wait as long as possible to see if it (or a promoter) can find another attractive opponent. Last season, a promoter found WSU a game with Southern Mississippi, which turned out

Bears are back — Missouri State received unexpected good news when Marcus Marshall and Keith Pickens played in Friday’s 70-67 win at Oral Roberts. Both suffered sprained knees on Nov. 24 and the prognosis had them out for four-to-six weeks, perhaps back in time for Missouri Valley Conference play. Marshall scored 20 points in 25 minutes against ORU. Pickens played 26 minutes and had three steals and four rebounds. “Sitting out these last four or five games was real tough, watching my team play,” Marshall told the Springfield News-Leader. “I felt I could really help us in so many ways and it felt great to be back.” Reach Paul Suellentrop at 316-269-6760 or Follow him on Twitter: @paulsuellentrop.

Smart, Oklahoma State breeze by Louisiana Tech Associated Press

Marcus Smart will likely have more opportunities to play on an NBA court. But the All-America guard – and potential lottery pick – decided not to force any shots and get his teammates more involved Saturday at Chesapeake Energy Arena, home of the Oklahoma City Thunder. The Big 12 Conference’s leading scorer took a backseat as Le'Bryan Nash scored 22 points and No. 7 Oklahoma State overcame a sluggish start to pull away for a 70-55 victory over Louisiana Tech. Nash admitted that it was his day to lead the Cowboys (9-1), who hadn’t played a game in more than a week. And with so many scoring options to defend, there was little Louisiana Tech (8-3) could do after cutting Oklahoma State’s lead to 49-42 with 8:44 remaining. “I wish I could have finished more shots,” Nash said. “I probably would have had a career high or something.” With Louisiana Tech determined to slow down Smart, Nash grabbed a game-high 10 rebounds and scored 15 of Oklahoma State’s 31 points in the first half. Nash made six of his first 11 shots to pick up the slack for Smart, who finished with 13 points. Smart was only 1-of-4 shooting in the first half, and he said he made a conscious effort to be more of an all-

BIG 12

around player who created shots for his teammates. He added five rebounds, five assists and four steals. Markel Brown had 13 points and Kamari Murphy added 10 for the Cowboys. “I’m just trying to focus on making sure that I don’t force a lot of things because I do have a talented group of guys around me that I really don’t need to force things,” Smart said. “They can create also, so I just kind of let them get in the flow of their game.” Chris Anderson scored 14 points and Alex Hamilton added 12 points for Louisiana Tech, which held Oklahoma State scoreless over the first 4 minutes of the game. But the Bulldogs couldn’t maintain the energy down the stretch. The Cowboys used their athleticism and multiple scoring options to turn a close game into a lopsided victory in the All-College Classic. “I thought we’d be more competitive to be honest, but I just think that we struggled so much from an offensive standpoint,” Louisiana Tech coach Mike White said. “(We) had a lot of droughts offensively, couldn’t really get into a rhythm.” LOUISIANA TECH (8-3): Kyser 0-0 0-0 0, Anderson 6-14 2-4 14, Hamilton 4-9 2-3 12, Appleby 4-15 0-0 9, Smith 3-12 0-2 6, Massey 0-2 0-0 0, Gjuroski 0-1 0-0 0, C.

Reynolds sets TD mark in Navy victory BY DAVID GINSBURG Associated Press

PHILADELPHIA – All Keenan Reynolds wanted was to beat Army. The nimble-footed quarterback got his wish, dashing through the snow and a weary defense all the way into the NCAA record book. Reynolds ran for 136 yards and scored three touchdowns to lead the ARMY 7 Midshipmen NAVY 34 to a 34-7 victory Saturday, their 12th straight in the series. “It’s hard to beat anybody 12 times in a row,” coach Ken Niumatalolo said. “But to beat your rivals, I’m very proud of them.” Reynolds scored on runs of 47 yards, 11 yards and 1 yard. The sophomore has 29 rushing touchdowns, breaking the single-season mark for a quarterback previously held by Ricky Dobbs (Navy, 2009) and Collin Klein (Kansas State, 2011), both of whom had 27. “Coming into the game, I wasn’t too concerned about the record. If I broke it, I broke it. If not, oh well,” Reynolds said. “My main concern was trying to get the W. If that involved me getting zero touchdowns and everyone else having a field day, I was good with that.” It didn’t work that way at all. Reynolds ran 30 times for on a frozen, snow-covered field. He also caught a 2-point conversion pass on a trick play following his second touchdown. His third score – with 46 seconds left in a lopsided game – gave him 176 points for the season, breaking the school record of 174 set by Bill Ingram in 1917. “The thought did come across my mind to take a knee,” Niumatalolo said. “But then my thoughts went to, I have a kid that has a chance

Navy quarterback Keenan Reynolds (19) runs in a touchdown during the first half Saturday in Philadelphia against Army. Reynolds’ 29 rushing touchdowns broke a mark set by Navy’s Ricky Dobbs (2009) and K-State’s Collin Klein (2011). to break a record that’s hard to come by.” Navy (8-4) won the Commander In Chief’s Trophy for the second consecutive season and ninth time in 11 years. The trophy is awarded to the service academy with the most victories in games between Navy, Army and Air Force. The Midshipmen haven’t lost to Army since 2001 and lead the series 58-49-7. Navy’s 12-game run is the longest in the history of the rivalry that began in 1890. “I’ve got a lot of good friends on that side,” Niuma-

talolo said. “They’ve got great kids over there. They go through what our kids go through. But ultimately, I’ve got to think about our team.” Niumatalolo became the second coach in Navy history to start his coaching career 6-0 against Army, matching Paul Johnson (2002-07). The Midshipmen will conclude their season in the Armed Forces Bowl against Middle Tennessee State on Dec. 30. Army (3-9) fumbled five times and was intercepted once in its fifth straight defeat. Embattled coach Rich

Ellerson fell to 0-5 against the Midshipmen and 20-41 overall since taking the job in December 2008. “You turn the ball over against a good football team, you give up big plays on defense, you take some big hits in the penalty game against a good football team, don’t be surprised if the score gets upside down,” Ellerson said. Ellerson’s job could be in jeopardy, and he knows it. “That’s not my call,” Ellerson said. “Obviously, in the body of work, we’ve made some progress. But I wasn’t

brought in to make progress. I was brought in to win some football games and beat Navy. I’ve lost to our rival five times.” The snow that was forecast in the morning hours began during the pregame pageantry that makes this game a one-of-a-kind spectacle. The snow, along with the freezing temperatures, created an uncomfortable setting for those in the packed stadium. Many of them left after the first half, which ended with Navy up 17-0. Making his first college start, Army quarterback A.J.

Schurr lost the handle on the wet football with his arm cocked to throw. Teammate Larry Dixon recovered, but the 20-yard loss doomed the Black Knights to end their first possession with a punt. Schurr fumbled on the next drive, too, and this time Navy recovered at its own 38. That ended his day. “If you’re struggling to hold onto the ball, that will get you out of there,” Ellerson said. Following the turnover, Quinton Singleton burst through a hole in the middle and ran 58 yards to the Army 4, setting up a field goal for a 3-0 lead late in the first quarter. Angel Santiago came in at quarterback for the Black Knights at just about the same time the intensity of the snow increased. On fourth-and-3 at the Navy 33, Terry Baggett lost three yards. Midway through the second period, Noah Copeland ran 39 yards for a touchdown to make it 10-0. With 2:38 left in the half, Reynolds gingerly picked his way through the Army defense on his record-tying touchdown run. In the third quarter, the snow turned to rain and Santiago did his best to make a game of it. After throwing a 29-yard pass to Xavier Moss, the junior quarterback scored on a 4-yard run to get the Black Knights to 17-7. Reynolds answered with an 11-play drive that produced a field goal. Army then failed to convert a fourth-and-3 from its own 42, a futile gamble that all but assured the Black Knights another frustrating loss against their far more successful service academy rivals. Reynolds scored his recordbreaking touchdown with 6:22 left, and the conversion pass from wide receiver Brendan Dudeck made it 28-7.

Cowboys back in December desperation mode BY DAVID MOORE Dallas Morning News

DALLAS — The Dallas Cowboys adhere to the 24-hour rule. Win or lose, that’s the amount of time players are given to dwell on a game’s outcome before moving on to the next opponent. Now seems like a good time to implement a 24-point rule. A team with its sights set on a division title should not go into the final 10 seconds of a game down by 24 points. Not in December against a team that resides in the NFL’s big, soft middle. Allowing Denver to hang half-a-hundred-plus-one on your defense is one thing. New Orleans, 49-17, is a road loss to an elite opponent. But Chicago 45-28 is difficult to stomach for a team with playoff aspirations. A

loss that large to a team on the same rung of the standings dampens the outlook. Jerry Jones concedes as much. The owner went into the weekend thinking the Cowboys were in a great spot, only to emerge with talk of how his team now has its back against the wall and can’t afford a loss Sunday to Green Bay. “This should be an all-out Hunt for Red October, trying to find a way to get better in these last three ballgames as we would hope to go into the playoffs,” Jones said. Too bad author and historian Tom Clancy is no longer around to suggest a fix for the Cowboys’ defense, although Jones maintains there’s no one he’d rather have than defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin and defensive line coach Rod



Time: Noon Line: NE by 2 ½ Pick: MIA 27-23 Patriots clinch AFC East crown with a win but they’re playoff-bound either way. It’s Miami that truly needs to win to keep hopes alive. By the way, what were the odds that the Dolphins would have lost two offensive linemen to a bullying scandal while a third (Mike Pouncey) missed practice this week to testify in a murder investigation? New England has won seven straight in this series, including Oct. 27, but I like Dolphins in an upset.

Time: Noon Line: ATL by 6 ½ Pick: ATL 31-26 Quick call for the Dog panel, as this is the week’s only game in which both teams are mathematically eliminated from playoff contention. Two teams that won their divisions in 2012 but now share the NFC’s worst record — that is sadness, friend. The Unmentionable Nicknames are 1-5 on road and now benching Robert Griffin III the rest of the way in favor of Kirk Cousins to protect RG3’s health. Still think bet-line feels fat.



Time: 3:05 p.m. on KWCH, Ch. 12 Line: KC by 4 ½ Pick: KC 21-13 Kansas City, after its first series sweep since ’06, clinches playoff spot with win, and should get it. Chiefs are 5-1 on road and have won eight of past 10 trips to Oakland. More specifically, a very hot Jamaal Charles — 359 yards and 6.9 per in past three games — should stay en fuego vs. an Oaks run-D clubbed for 287 yards the past two games.

Time: 3:05 p.m. Line: CAR by 11 Pick: CAR 24-6 Carolina hasn’t clinched a playoff spot yet and should be in big rebound mode at home after being humbled by Saints last week. Rex Ryan’s erratic Jets are a road wreck (1-5) and have fizzled.

Marinelli. What else would he say with three weeks left in the regular season? By the way, in case Kiffin and Marinelli are listening, Jones believes the defense must take more risks and make some personnel changes heading into the Packers game. A similar argument can be made about the offense. With the defense in this sad state, the Cowboys’ best chance to win is with their offense. Shootouts are the way to go. So how did the Cowboys’ offense respond Monday night to a Bears team that scored on its first eight possessions? No player had more than 36 receiving yards. Dez Bryant caught two passes for 12 yards and Jason Witten had just one for 10 yards. This is what they mean by taking a knife to a gun fight.

Ball security is the prime directive in the philosophy of head coach Jason Garrett. But the Cowboys didn’t turn the ball over Monday night and still got drilled. The Cowboys have a plus-12 turnover ratio to tie Seattle for the league’s second-best mark, yet still find themselves on the outside looking in at the playoffs. Garrett’s ability to adapt in these final three games is as crucial as his ability to inspire his players. He can’t allow the doubts that creep in take hold. “The worst thing we can do is have a hangover after this loss,” Garrett said. Actually, that’s not the worst thing. The worst thing was the loss itself. But Garrett and the Cowboys have usually responded in these situations.

“It’s not an emotional letdown, but you put so much work into it each week that it’s just frustrating,” quarterback Tony Romo said. “The more important aspect is what you do afterwards. “I think that’s something that you have to learn and figure out in your career. You have to be able to let it go and come back the next week. Obviously, now the next game is going to be the most important one on your schedule. “It feels like you have to win out.” The Cowboys will win the NFC East if they win their final three games. Philadelphia can do nothing to alter that reality. That’s a lot to ask of a team that has not won more than two consecutive games all season. The Cowboys have





Time: Noon Line: CLE by 1 Pick: CHI 34-20 Jay Cutler returns from injury to lead Chicago’s late scramble for a playoff spot — a risk, considering Josh McCown had been playing very well. Easing Jay’s return: Browns on a four-game skid and a Cleveland pass defense that has allowed at least two opponent TD passes in eight straight games. Chitown fans should be more worried about their defense. Aside to Bears: Somebody wanna mind Josh Gordon? He has 774 receiving yards the past four games.

Time: Noon Line: IND by 5 ½ Pick: IND 24-17 Houston coach Wade Phillips takes over for fired Gary Kubiak and confronts the Colts’ 11-0 home record in this series, and by an average margin of 13.9 points. Still, an interesting matchup. Indy has clinched a playoff spot and has little to play for; Texans play to rid themselves of the stench of 11 straight losses. Colts only won first meeting 27-24, and haven’t played well lately, with Andrew Luck severely missing Reggie Wayne.

Time: Noon Line: PHI by 4 ½ Pick: PHI 30-24 Eagles are well in the playoff hunt on the wing of five straight wins led by QB “Saint” Nick Foles, and they’ve averaged 31.6 points since Week 9. Minny has nothing to play for but wounded pride and could be missing Adrian Peterson. So why does this pick make me nervous?

Time: Noon on KSAS, Ch. 4 Line: SEA by 7 Pick: SEA 24-20 Seattle risks a letdown after facing 49ers last week, but Hawks still gun for division title and first-round bye. And they’re better than you think (5-2) on the road. Marshawn Lynch should bust his recent slump against Biggies’ generous run defense, and NYG’s league-worst 34 turnovers seem a bad match for Seattle’s takeaway-oriented defense, but still hunch it close.




Time: 3:25 p.m. Line: ARI by 2 ½ Pick: ARI 24-16 Arizona risks being the best team to not make the playoffs and needs this one badly. Cardbirds have won five of their past six — fueled by Carson Palmer’s 106.8 passer rating in that stretch — but still have some climbing to do. Tenners’ D has given up 116 points in a fourgame home losing streak.

Time: 3:25 p.m. Line: NO by 6 Pick: NO 27-23 N’Awlins clinches a playoff spot with a win, and brings a pass rush that should make it very tough on Kellen Clemens. The numbers don’t lie, though. Drew Brees’ Saints offense averages 32.9 points at home and a mortal 18.8 on the road. Rams won last meeting in 2011 and should stay close again.


Time: 3:25 p.m. on KSAS Line: OFF Pick: DAL 31-27 Game was off betting boards into Friday because of the questionable status of Pack QB Aaron Rodgers, who seemed more and more likely to sit out once again. Give Cheesers a big chance with the way Dallas’ defense has played lately, but make it a venue pick. Cows are 5-1 at home; Gee Bees 2-4 away. Pack’s only other game in Dallas’ new stadium was a Super Bowl win Feb. 6, 2011.

Time: 7:30 p.m. on KSNW, Ch. 3 Line: CIN by 3 Pick: PIT 21-20 “AAWWK!” carols the Upset Bird. “Deck the halls with Big Ben. Baaawwwk!!” No matter the result here, Cincinnati is likely headed for a third straight playoff appearance for first time in club’s 46 seasons. Cincy’s defense had its way in teams’ first meeting, 20-10, but Ben Roethlisberger is 14-6 in his career vs. Bengals, and 11-0 on TDs/picks in his past four games. Did I mention all four Cincy losses have been on the road?

put together a three-game winning streak only twice since Garrett took over as head coach in the middle of the 2010 season. But it’s not an unreasonable request. The Cowboys are good at home and face a Green Bay team that struggles to win without quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who may or may not play Sunday afternoon. The next week, the Cowboys face a Washington team that is in disarray. Pick up those two wins and it sets up the finale against the Eagles at AT&T Stadium. “We do have the ability to step out here and put two or three games together, make some adjustments, ride that Romo, ride that running game and maybe have a storybook finish,” Jones said on the team’s flagship radio station Tuesday.

49ERS AT BUCCANEERS Time: Noon Line: SF by 5 ½ Pick: SF 20-17 Frans are in great shape for playoffs and coming off an emotional win over Seattle. Bucs are eliminated but have been pretty good ever since that 0-8 start. T-Bay is plus-13 on turnovers and has an upset shot if they avoid giveaways. See it lowscoring and close.

BILLS AT JAGUARS Time: Noon Line: BUF by 2 Pick: JAC 23-21 Our Dog of the Week runnerup begs the question: How on Earth are these two teams still (technically) alive in the playoff chase? Maurice Jones-Drew’s iffy status gives us pause, but these are two teams headed oppositely. Jax has won four of its past five. Buffs have lost three straight roadies by a combined 85-33.

RAVENS AT LIONS Time: 7:40 p.m. Monday on ESPN, Ch. 32 Line: DET by 6 Pick: DET 31-23 Baltimore has won three straight while Motown has dropped three of four, but I see Lions getting right at home, especially if gimpy Reggie Bush plays. Ravens are 1-5 traveling, but key will be Lions avoiding turnovers after having 20 over the past six games. Greg Cote, Miami Herald

SUNDAY, DECEMBER 15, 2013 ■ THE WICHITA EAGLE 9D Dexter McCluster crosses the goal line to score a touchdown on a punt return against Washington during last Sunday’s game, his second return TD this season.

CHIEFS From Page 1D threat to score whenever he touches the ball, the Chiefs have three. Quintin Demps and rookie Knile Davis have each returned one kickoff for a touchdown this season, including Davis’ 108-yarder against Denver on Dec. 1, the longest play in Chiefs history and second-longest kickoff return in NFL history. And before he was ruled out for Sunday’s game at Oakland because of an infection in his ankle, Dexter McCluster returned two punts for touchdowns, including last week’s 74-yarder at Washington, which coupled with Demps’ 95-yard kickoff return, gave the Chiefs two kick returns in the same game for the first time since Hall returned a punt and kickoff at St. Louis exactly 11 years to the day, Dec. 8, 2002. “McCluster and Demps are a heck of a 1-2 punch,” Hall said by phone from his home in Texas. “I love the way they hit (the hole). They hit it with no fear at all. That’s the key to being a great returner.” It’s what Chiefs chairman Clark Hunt was looking for — and actually predicted — when newly hired Andy Reid put together his coaching staff last January and included former Chicago Bears assistant Dave Toub as the club’s new special teams coordinator. “I think we really have a chance to take a step forward in special teams,” Hunt told The Star during Super Bowl weekend in New Orleans. “I grew up with the Chiefs during a period of time in the 1980s when Frank Gansz was the special-teams coach … widely regarded as one of the best in the league at that time and maybe one of the best ever. “You can think back to some of those seasons in the ’80s, when we won a lot of games with special teams. Well, that’s the mentality that the team is going to have with the new leadership. It’s something

Andy believes in. Instead of trying not to make mistakes, we’re going to go out on special teams and try to win football games.” Yet even Hunt couldn’t imagined so much special teams success so quickly. Already, the Chiefs’ four kick returns for touchdowns in one season tied the club record set by Hall in 2003 when he returned two punts and two kickoffs for scores in a ridiculous four consecutive games, capped by a 93-yard punt return against Denver, in which he retreated near his goal line and after a couple nifty moves brought the Arrowhead Stadium house down by streaking down the sidelines. The four returns for touchdowns are two shy of the NFL single-season record of six set by the 2007 Bears, whose special teams coach happened to be Toub. Future Hall of Famer Devin Hester returned four punts and two kickoffs for touchdowns for the 2007 Bears and broke his league record set in 2006 when he returned five kicks for touchdowns — three punts and two kickoffs — also under Toub. “Once you score …” Toub said, “and the same thing happened in Chicago … it feeds off itself. The guys start buying in and want to get

working for us.” As a rookie, McCluster returned a punt a club-record 94 yards for a critical touchdown in the 2010 seasonopening win over San Diego. But he would return just 20 more punts in the next three years, as the previous coaching staff went primarily with Javier Arenas. Reid and Toub decided to give McCluster another shot at returning punts. “Looking from afar, when he had the touchdown his rookie year, you could see that he was dynamic,” Toub said. “They didn’t use him (as a punt returner), but I think they were trying to keep him fresh and protect him for the offense. “I’m happy Andy allows him to do the other things.” For all of the Chiefs’ grand Harry E. Walker/MCT “Knile can hit it right up the kick-return heritage, the club them in the end zone. We field, north and south. And he hit a touchdown drought have three guys who can do runs so hard, and strong with during the past two-plus seait, and guys block a little bit sons. extra, and it’s paying off for us his knees up, running-back Going into this season, the style, that he’s really hard to right now.” Chiefs hadn’t returned a kickHaving multiple kick-return tackle.

his 89-yard return, which resembled Hall’s crowd-stirring return against Denver in 2003, broke open a tight game and sparked a 31-7 win over the Giants at Arrowhead Stadium. “That definitely brought back memories of that year when I saw that,” Hall said, comparing McCluster’s spinning away from at least three Giants to his big return against Denver when he retreating to his goal line before juking Denver’s pursuit. “He reminds me a lot of myself,” Hall, who was 5 feet 8 and 187 pounds, said of McCluster, who’s 5-8 and 170. “I was a little bigger than him. But I was still a smaller guy and used my quickness, and it’s fun to watch him play.” Davis also electrified the Arrowhead Stadium faithful with the 108-yarder against Denver; and the daily double of McCluster’s punt return and Demps’ kickoff return at Washington was a crowning blow. “It starts with great coaching and the other 10 guys blocking and doing their job,” said Demps … ” and having a good returner, of course, always pays off.” During the preseason, Toub did not limit the return men from returning kickoffs from deep in the end zone. That attitude extended into the regular season, where the Chiefs are not settling for touchbacks and no kickoff is too deep to return. On Sunday, they’ll face an Oakland team that has surrendered one punt return for a touchdown, but kickoffs are another matter. Raiders kicker Sebastian Janikowski ranks second in the NFL in with 51 touchbacks, but he’s going to have to put the ball out of the stadium to keep the Chiefs from returning his kickoffs. “We’ll bring them out,” Toub said. “We like to create. We want to put pressure on the kickoff team. Our confidence is high right now.” Just like the days of Super Gnat … Vanover … and Hall. “There is definitely a tradition here,” Toub said. “We’re happy we’re able to enhance this tradition.”



Kansas City soccer was on brink of extinction club still, it was very emotional for me,” said Greg Cotton, the former chairman of the board for Heart of KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A project to “Save the Wizards” America. “Those are the guys started in 2004 with roughly who I thought of first. It was a really special moment for 30 strangers meeting in a small downtown Kansas City me and for everyone inoffice. Nine years later, many volved with Heart of America to see how far we’ve come.” of those strangers remain One morning in late 2004, best friends, forever bonded not long after Lamar Hunt by their efforts to keep a announced he would be Major League Soccer franselling the Wizards, David chise in Kansas City.

It was only fitting that they attended a meeting later that week. celebrated it together. “I walked into this room, “As I was looking up into the stands seeing those guys, and I don’t think I knew a single person,” Ficklin said. who are huge fans of the BY SAM MCDOWELL Kansas City Star

“But they had the same burning passion that I did.” The group formed the Heart of America Soccer Foundation and scheduled regular meetings. Using a “Save the Wizards” slogan, it established a primary goal to keep the Wizards in Kansas City by promoting soccer in the city and attempting to attract potential local buyers. The project started rather slowly. “The odds were so minimal that we would be successful,” Ficklin said. “But you absolutely have to try. The great things are worth fighting for against all odds. I think sports teaches you a lesson that it’s not over until it’s over.” And it wasn’t, though many in Heart of America said it appeared that way on numerous occasions.

But OnGoal, a local ownership group led by Cerner co-founders Neal Patterson and Cliff Illig, purchased the Wizards from Hunt in Aug. 2006. Known as Sporting Club today, the group also consists of Greg Maday, Pat Curran and Robb Heineman, who met regularly with the Heart of America group when assessing the team’s place in Kansas City. “It’s not the Heart of America that did it — Neil and Cliff saved the Wizards — but hopefully we kept that fire burning long enough to show them soccer could work in Kansas City,” Cotton said. Added Heineman, “We were very involved with them. We listened to their belief system and what they thought the fan base could turn into here. Those guys

were absolutely correct.” The Heart of America disbanded after OnGoal’s purchase of the team, but its members have remained in contact while following Sporting KC. Many of them sat together at Sporting Park during the championship victory against Real Salt Lake, including Robert Houghton, a former member of the board. “It was very emotional in my section because there were a lot of people there who had been around the team awhile,” said Houghton, a former president of the Sporting KC supporters group known as the Cauldron. “We know the history and we know the struggles from seven, eight, nine years ago. We know how close we were to not having a team. It was much closer than people

The Yanks wanted more than a $5 million discount. “I'll throw him bouquets all he wants,” Cashman said of Cano. “I couldn’t throw him $235 million.” So Cano smiled through his welcome ceremony at Safeco Field, donned a No. 24 Mariners jersey and tweeted thanks to his “amazing fans” in New York and a hello to the Seattle faithful — fans of a franchise that has never been to a World Series. But he couldn’t hide his hard feelings at the Yanks. “I was looking for a contract where I would just be able to play and focus on the game and wouldn’t wonder when I’m 37, 38 would I have a job one day?” Cano told reporters. “The one thing in Seattle is I get the chance.” The Yankees countered that Cano’s $25 million annual-average salary as a Yankee would have been the industry’s third such outlay,

after Rodriguez and Justin Verlander of the Tigers. “We love Robbie, he’s a great player,” Cashman said. “In terms of respect, they showed a lot more respect financially than we did.” That’s business, nothing personal say the Yanks. “(Cano) was a great Yankee and we wish him all the best,” Steinbrenner said. “Bottom line with us is we never got close. We were always a significant distance apart.” The additions of Ellsbury, Brian McCann and Carlos Beltran could cushion the loss, but one potential replacement second baseman came off the board Friday when the Royals reportedly outbid the Yanks for free agent Omar Infante. Cashman had negotiations with free agent lefty reliever Boone Logan, who agreed to a three-year $16.5 million deal with Colorado. The Yanks had less interest in retaining Joba Chamberlain, who went to Detroit on a one-year, $2.5 million deal. As for Cano, “I know it’s not going to be easy to replace him,” Steinbrenner said. “But life goes on. We’re not done yet.”

realize.” That fact certainly isn’t lost on Ficklin or Cotton, both of whom are now employed by Sporting KC. After the final whistle sounded in the championship game, Ficklin said he hugged his wife, daughter and son. Then he climbed over two rows of seats and hugged Cotton, too. He next quickly found Chad Reynolds and Sam Pierron — two others he considered key members of the Save the Wizards movement. “‘Can you believe it?’” Ficklin remembers asking them. “‘All these years. We did it.’” Nine years after its formation, the Heart of America’s website — — is now a dead link. Soccer in Kansas City, however, is very much alive.

Troglodytes troglodytes A roomful of excited kindergartners have nothing on winter wrens when it comes to chatter. Their calls can contain up to 35 sounds per second. Winter wren habitat in Kansas are wooded areas with dense brush, often along streams. While the habitat might be easy to find in a lot of places, actually seeing a winter wren can be a challenge in places with a lot of winter wrens. As their Latin name — Troglodytes troglodytes — indicates, winter wrens can be real hermits that often stay deep within that brush cover. That they’re small — often only about four inches long — and drab brown also makes them difficult to spot.

Harnessing dog power Tracking dogs can sometimes help recover deer, but not in Kansas. ■


Every fall Brady Hesington disappoints Kansas hunters struggling to find a deer they’ve shot. “In November I average 10 to 15 calls and I just have to tell them blood tracking dogs are illegal in Kansas,” said Hesington, of Monett, Mo., the owner of two dogs that specialize in trailing wounded deer. “Some are in Kansas from other states, like Michigan, where dogs are legal. Quite a few are Kansas residents that end up wishing it was legal in Kansas.” Some have thought so for quite a while. “I think if you shoot a deer, and need help recovering that deer, you should be able to (use a dog) and recover that deer,” said Tim Donges, an El Dorado hunter and Quality Deer Management Association member. “Anytime we can help a hunter recover a deer, we should do what we can.” According to, the website of a national group that promotes dogs for recovering big game, more than half of all states allow such methods. Kevin Jones, Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism law enforcement chief, said the agency has heard from supportive hunters like Donges at assorted public meetings. He also said many discussions have included some who fear legalization of dogs for trailing deer could lead to abuse of the privilege, and people letting free-ranging dogs chase deer toward other hunters. John Jeanneney, probably America’s top expert on tracking dogs, said that’s a common public perception he’s dealt with for 40 years.

It was about that long ago, while in Europe, Jeanneney met German foresters who told him blood tracking dogs were legal in most of Europe and were required by most hunting clubs to reduce the number of unrecovered animals. Upon his return he talked with New York wildlife officials about legalizing tracking dogs. Many were hesitant, because of the fears of free-ranging packs of hounds. “It wasn’t easy, but I got a research permit from them and we started doing research,” said Jeanneney, of Berne, N.Y. “I got some good people to come in with me and I guess we found some deer for the right people.” Rather than longlegged hounds running on their own, Check out a photo gallery at Jeanneney proved the method’s worth with his imported wire-haired dachshunds always leashed. What dogs could accomplish also impressed many. “They’re not just trailing blood, they’re trailing the individual scent of the deer,” he said, adding that glands between a deer’s hooves leave scent on the ground and every deer has its own unique scent. Dean Harre, a Missouri Department of Conservation law enforcement supervisor, said there were similar pros and cons discussed when tracking dogs were legalized about five years ago. He said that “a culture” existing in parts of southern Missouri where some use packs of free-running hounds to illegally chase deer, hurt the cause. Jeanneney said most states that allow tracking dogs have fairly specific regulations, including that dogs most be on a leash and trespass is not allowed. In New York, Deer Search, an organization he helped found, has chapters scattered around the state to help hunters. In New York, hunters contact a state-licensed tracker, who notifies local game wardens of where, and for whom, they will be tracking. Landowner permission is required at all times and dogs must remain on a leash throughout the pursuit. Also, their dog handlers are allowed to carry firearms, and can kill a deer deemed mortally wounded or dangerous. “I’ve been charged and knocked down by a (wounded) buck,” Jeanneney said. He currently has a dachshund recovering from being injured by a deer. Harre said Missouri does not require trackers to be licensed, but hunters must have exhausted standard trailing methods, dogs must be leashed and permission gained from

deer, or the wrong species of game. “Every time I put the tracking harness on my dog, he knows what he’s there for,” Hesington said. “They know they’re tracking wounded game, and that’s their job at the time.” Hesington also uses his dogs on other game and has recently shot several rabbits with their help. Through the past four decades, Jeanneney said he’s see the development of a group whose prime outdoors passion is using their dogs to help locate game shot by others. “It can be a lot of work, and some long hours, but it is very enjoyable and rewarding for people who like working with dogs,” said, Jeanneney, who at 78 has given up some kinds of hunting but is still regularly tracking with dogs. “I’ve been known to climb down out of my treestand during the peak of rut to go help somebody recover a deer,” Hesington said. “I know guys that do 300 tracks a year or more. We have a lot of blood trackers who aren’t even hunters, they’re just people who want to work with their dogs and help make the best use of the resource.”

Is Kansas next? Both experts said they’re hearing from sportsmen in several states, including Kansas, who want to get tracking dogs legalized for wounded Courtesy photo game.

How to get your home ready for holiday guests Hosting family members for the holidays is a great way to spend quality time with loved ones during a special time of year. For many families, the holidays are the one time each year when everyone can get together regardless of where they live or how demanding their commitments to work and family can be. When families gather for the holidays, many people often find themselves playing host to distant relatives. Accepting such hosting duties is an act that comes with many responsibilities, including readying the home for overnight guests. The following are a few ways hosts can prepare their homes for holiday guests. • Take inventory of linens. Overnight guests mean you will need extra bed linens, blankets and pillows.Take inventory of your linen closet now, and inspect each set of sheets to make sure they are still usable. If sheets are ragged or the blankets have thinned, purchase new linens so your guests feel as if they’re at home and don’t get cold overnight. If your linen closet is fully stocked with quality linens, clean them in the days leading up to your guests’ arrival. • Buy some night lights.You might be familiar enough with your home’s layout in the dark, but your guests likely won’t have that same sense of familiarity. Purchase a few night lights for the hallways and restrooms so guests can easily get around should they need to get up in the middle of the night to use the restroom.

• Childproof your home if necessary. Kids can be curious, so holiday hosts without children of their own should childproof their homes before any guests arrive with kids in tow. Move hazardous materials to high shelves • Clean out the closets. If your hall that kids can’t reach, and make sure closets are largely used for storing any prescription medications are also miscellaneous items, clean them out out of reach of youngsters. If your for the coming days to make room for home has any steep staircases, consider your guests’ coats, jackets, scarves, hats, purchasing some child gates or asking and shoes. Moving these items, be it your guests to bring their own gates to reduce the risk of young kids falling down your stairs. • Stock up on toiletries and other essentials. Replenish your supply of toiletries Preferred before guests arrive. Stock up on toilet Properties of paper, tissues, toothpaste, shampoo, Kansas, Inc. conditioner, and lotion in the days leadInformation ing up to the holidays. In addition, conPrices and availability sider buying kitchen items like paper subject to change without towels, napkins, plastic cutlery, and notice. paper plates. Paper plates may come in especially handy, saving you the trouble of having to load up the dishwasher after meals in which paper plates and plastic cutlery would have sufficed. • Give your common areas a thorough cleaning.Any common areas of the home, including the foyer, living room, dining room, kitchen, and restrooms, 410 Kodiak & 317 Kodiak should be given a thorough cleaning OPEN 2-4 prior to your guests’ arrival.

SIMPLE WAYS TO SAVE MONEY ON INSURANCE COSTS same provider saves consumers an average of 10 percent, and such a discount can add up to a significant amount of money over the life of your policies. Over the course of their lifetimes, men and women can expect to spend thousands of dollars on insurance. People insure their vehicles, homes, health, lives, and a host of other things, and the cost of such security can be significant. Considered essential by many men and women, insurance is unlike any other product or service, as people will pay for it all the while hoping they never need it. That reality leaves many policy holders wondering if there are any ways to save on their insurance policies without diminishing their coverage. Though insurance companies consider a host of factors when determining the cost of each individual policy, there are some ways that all men and women can reduce their insurance bills. • Bundle your policies. Multi-policy discounts, which many insurance companies offer to policy holders who combine two or more policies, can save men and women substantial amounts of money. Purchasing homeowners’, automotive and life insurance policies from the

• Comparison shop. Though shopping for insurance might not be as fun as finding your next television or test driving cars, comparison shopping when buying insurance can save policy holders a significant amount of money. The cost of insurance often varies significantly from provider to provider, and consumers should exercise due diligence when looking to cut their insurance costs. Comfort level with an existing insurance provider should not outweigh the savings you might earn elsewhere, especially if another provider can offer you the same exact coverage at a much lower price. You may even be able to lower your existing policy if you contact your current provider and inform them you have received a more affordable estimate with another company. • Consider specialist companies. A handful of insurance companies specialize in particular types of insurance. For example, one company might specialize in motorcycle insurance and might

be more capable of tailoring your policy to your particular driving habits, offering you discounts depending on how many years you have been riding motorcycles. However, a more general company might simply lump you into one big group, meaning you’re likely to earn similar rates as novice riders without your experience. There are specialist companies offering various types of insurance, so look into such companies if you have special needs or less popular hobbies that require insurance. • Stop paying for duplicate coverage. Many people can trim some

of their monthly insurance costs by combing their existing coverages to determine if they are paying for duplicate coverage. For instance, your auto insurance policy may include health coverage, but chances are your existing health insurance will trump the health coverage offered by your auto insurance policy, meaning you’re paying for the same thing twice. Examine each of your policies to determine if you are paying for any duplicate coverage, and then contact your provider to remove such items if you find them.
