Customers buy the coupons online and redeem them at the local shops. Groupon and the retailer split the cost of the proceeds. Another website, LivingSocial, operates on a similar concept. These social coupons are something the Kansas Department of Revenue is reviewing, spokeswoman Jeannine Koranda said. “It’s on our radar,” Koranda said. “It’s an area where a lot of states are finding that technology is outpacing their laws.” Since January, Groupons have been offered in Lawrence on everything from coffee to laser hair removal. Many of the products, such as massages, a ride on a party bike and prescription eye glasses, are exempt from paying sales tax. But the Groupons products sold in restaurants, coffee shops and pizza parlors do have to pay sales tax. In Groupon’s agreement with merchants, it states that retailers are responsible for covering the sales and use taxes on the goods and services. In Lawrence, businesses such as 3 Spoons Yogurt, Wheat State Pizza and Mirth Cafe treat Groupons just as they do other coupons. Customers only have to pay sales tax on the amount not covered by the Groupon. But according to the department of revenue, that might not be enough. The state agency agrees that retailers need to pay the difference on what is covered in the coupon and what a customer buys. So for example, if someone buys $30 worth of pizza and has

Baker University is preparing to overhaul its general education requirements, focusing on skills rather than on specif ic courses. The change, which needs approval from the school’s Board of Trustees, is already being piloted for freshmen. Erin Joyce, Baker’s interim assistant dean for liberal

studies, has been involved throughout the five-year process leading up to the change. “The students who have taken the freshman pilot courses, they do seem to like it,” she said. The number of hours required for general education will be lowered, from about 56 to 60 hours for most students to 38 hours. The number of total hours required for graduation will

stay the same. The required courses will be spread out over four years. In the first year, students will be encouraged to “ignite” their learning and discover themselves. In year two, students learn to “investigate” through scientific inquiry. In the junior year, students focus on “integration” of information, followed by the senior year when learning

centers around the “impact” of what they’ve learned and how they can apply it to the real world. This comes after the school hired a consultant from the American Association of Colleges and Universities, and after Baker looked at data from businesses that showed what they’re expecting from graduates. Businesses want students who can communicate well, Joyce said, both orally and in

writing, who are critical and creative thinkers, globally aware, act ethically and can work in teams. Therefore, the new model focuses on skills rather than specific classes. For example, gone are the old Composition I and Composition II requirements. In their place is a “core class” called Liberal Studies 111, a class that integrates Please see BAKER, page 2A

For the more detailed work, the company uses a computerized router. “The organ is unique because it has to sound good, but it has to look good, too,” Watgen said. “How many musical instruments have to do that?”

On the inside The interior side builds the pieces that make the organ run, such as the windchest and reservoir. Most of the handiwork can’t be seen in a finished organ, but it’s vital to the operation. “These guys are the unsung heroes,” Watgen said. “You never get to see their stuff.” Those pieces are all built to m a ke t h e p i p e s pl ay.

Each pipe can make only one sound at one volume. Each organ has, on average, 30 to 35 sounds, so thousands of pipes are handmade for each instrument. Pipes are formed and soldered, and then they head to the voicing department, where Watgen and others make the pipes sing. “We give the pipe its voice,” Watgen said. Pipes can be made of wood or metal, have sounds ranging from trumpets to flutes to bees, and have many different finishes. Some are burnt copper, which gives them a aware of her husband’s situation. Harrenstein said customers need to let the city know that they are on life-supporting machines and provide proof of their medical condition so the city can work something out when customers are having trouble paying bills and “so we can take it under consideration and prevent anything from happening to cause the loss of life.” Harrenstein noted that city residents are notified three times before their electricity is shut off and have 10 days to pay the bill. Westar Energy, the state’s largest utility company, has a special program for customers who are on life-sustaining machines, such as oxygen concentrators, kidney dialysis machines or electric feeding pumps. But customers still have to pay their bills and should have a backup plan in place in case the electricity goes out, Westar spokeswoman Gina Penzig said. If customers are having trouble paying bills, Penzig

‘Bells and whistles’ Once the pipes are finished, all parts of the organ go into an assembly room with 45-foot ceilings, finishing a building process that generally takes about three months. Th e re, s o m e o f t h e newest features to organs can be seen. A recording device allows organists to p l ay a n d t h e n h ave t h e instrument play music back, similar to a player piano. Many organs are also Musical Instrument Digital Interface-compatible, and musicians can plug keyboards into them. From there, Reuter delivers the organs all across the country, and sometimes around the world. An installation generally takes about a month, and the final cost can range from $100,000 for a small organ to $1.3 million or more for a large one. On average, a church pays about $500,000 for an organ. “It all depends on how many bells and whistles you want,” Watgen said. Despite a down economy and changing tastes in church music, Watgen said he thinks organs will be around for a long time. “What’s more natural than air going through a pipe?” Watgen said. “That’s what our voice is.” — Reporter Brenna Hawley can be reached at 832-7217.

said they are given a 21-day extension to work with social services and other resources to find a way to pay the bill. Westar has about 2,300 customers on the program. Penzig said it’s the customers’ responsibility to have a backup plan in case of power outages. “Whether it be a generator or a family member they can go stay with,” she said. Even though her bill is paid, Wyant said she still wants laws to change to provide more protection for people in her husband’s situation and more regulations on municipal utility providers. She plans to speak at Eudora’s city council meeting tonight. With a poor economy, Wyant said she believes the situation she faced could be a common one. “Any of us can get to the point in our life were we get f inancially stressed very quickly — like, in 30 seconds,” Wyant said. “And what are you going to do?” — Reporter Christine Metz can be reached at 832-6352.

Protesters prepare for attack

BRIEFING

With residents shouting “Free, free Libya,” anti-government rebels who control Zawiya, a battle-scarred city 30 miles from the capital, deployed tanks and anti-aircraft weapons Sunday to brace for an attack by troops loyal to Moammar Gadhafi. The Obama administration offered “any type of assistance” to Libyans seeking to oust the longtime leader. Politicians in the opposition stronghold of Benghazi set up their first leadership council to manage day-to-day affairs, taking a step toward forming what could be an alternative to Gadhafi’s regime. In the capital, Tripoli, where Gadhafi is still firmly in control, state banks began handing out the equivalent of $400 per family in a bid to shore up public loyalty. “The Libyan people are fully behind me,” Gadhafi defiantly told Serbian TV, even as about half of the country was turning against him and world leaders moved to isolate him. “A small group (of rebels) is surrounded ... and it will be dealt with.”

Governor unfazed by protests Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker says the two weeks of protests in the state capital haven’t swayed his resolve to eliminate collective bargaining rights for most public employees. Leaders of Wisconsin’s largest public workers’ unions have capitulated to Walker’s demands for their members to cover more of their pension and health care benefits to help close Wisconsin’s budget deficit. But Walker said Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press” that stripping the workers of collective bargaining rights is necessary to give the state the flexibility to get its finances in order. Democratic and union leaders say the attack on collective bargaining is an attempt to undermine the unions and weaken the Democratic Party base. Walker also says he thinks some of the 14 state Senators who fled the capital will return soon. 3 | NEW YORK CITY

Pump prices rattle drivers, businesses High fuel prices are putting the squeeze on drivers’ wallets just as they are starting to feel better about the economy. They’re also forcing tough choices on small-business owners who are loath to charge more for fear of losing cost-conscious customers. Gasoline prices rose 4 percent last week to a national average of $3.29 per gallon. That’s the highest level ever for this time of year, when prices are typically low. And with unrest in the Middle East and North Africa lifting the price of oil to the $100-a-barrel range, analysts say pump prices are likely headed higher. Analysts and economists worry that by lowering profits for businesses and reducing disposable income for drivers, high gasoline prices could slow the recovering economy. Over a year, analysts estimate, oil at $100 a barrel would reduce U.S. economic growth by 0.2 or 0.3 of a percentage point. Rather than grow an estimated 3.7 percent this year, the economy would expand 3.4 percent or 3.5 percent. That would likely mean less hiring and higher unemployment.

This was the first time in three years that Luke Ulrich planted a wheat crop, and it’s still a small percentage of the 1,500 acres that his family farms in land in Douglas, Franklin and Shawnee counties. For wheat, yields are typically around 30 or 40 bushels per acre in Douglas County. Out in western Kansas, the yields can average 55 to 60 bushels per acre.

Western Kansas is known for being home to the state’s most bountiful wheat yields. But that might not be the case this year. With western Kansas experiencing winter drought conditions it hasn’t seen since the late 1980s, the wheat harvest isn’t expected to be a bumper one. But closer to home, a warm fall and lots of winter moisture means the wheat crop is looking healthy, local farmers said. “We’ll be in good shape if we don’t get another cold snap,” said Mark Wulfkuhle. “In our area, wheat really looks good.” Wulfkuhle, who farms in western Douglas County and

raises beef cattle, said wheat usually makes up about 10 to 20 percent of the crops he grows in his fields. Wheat, the staple for western Kansas, isn’t a primary crop for farmers in Douglas County. They tend to stick to corn and soybeans. But wheat is grown when farmers want to rotate in new crops or for grazing. Bill Wood, director of Douglas County’s K-State Research

— Rep. Charles Roth, R-Salina, on a bill to repeal in-state tuition for undocumented students.

Ballard honored by advocacy group Rep. Barbara Ballard, DLawrence, received the State Elected Official Ally of the Year award from the Kansas Coalition Against Sexual and Domestic Violence. “We honor Representative Ballard for being an outspoken ally for victims and survivors in her hometown of Lawrence and at the state level as an elected official,” said Joyce Grover, executive director of KCSDV.

LAWRENCE SCHOOL BOARD RACE

Candidate envisions science emphasis By Mark Fagan mfagan@ljworld.com

Tunisia’s interim president chose a former government minister as a new prime minister on Sunday, appealing for a return to calm following new violent protests that have been hobbling this North African country since the ouster of its long-time autocratic leader. Beji Caid-Essebsi will replace Mohammed Ghannouchi, who resigned earlier Sunday after becoming a major irritant to Tunisians behind the so-called “Jasmine Revolution” that toppled autocratic President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali last month and sparked a wave of upheaval in the Arab world. The caretaker president, Fouad Mebazaa, made the appointment later Sunday. As Ben Ali’s prime minister for 11 years, Ghannouchi became the emblem of an entrenched old guard that many Tunisians feared were hijacking their revolution.

“At its basis, the core of this bill is mean-spirited and it’s not the Kansas way.”

Bill Roth and his wife bought a motorhome and traveled the country for a year, searching — from California to Key West, Fla. — for a place with a comfortable lifestyle, educated populace and, perhaps most importantly, solid schools for their two young children. Six years after they settled on a 20-acre homesite near Lone Star, the 77-year-old retired engineer is looking to help make the Lawrence school district even better. “Lawrence should have the best schools in the state,” Roth

said. “I have that as a vision for what I’d like to see: I want other people coming to Lawrence to see how we do so well.” Roth is one of nine candidates campaigning for four available seats on the Lawrence school board. The general election is April 5, with winners scheduled to start their four-year terms in July. Roth’s vision calls for an emphasis on science education and environmental awareness, while tapping into volunteer advice from Kansas University faculty and steering future projects, goals and directions into a single, cohesive path. “I’d develop a long-range plan with a vision, measurable goals and a timeline,” he said. “It’s for the entire district: What’s our

Hawker Beechcraft expands Mexico operations W I C H I T A ( A P ) — Hawker Beechcraft Corp. has opened a second plant in Mexico and expects its Mexican work force to balloon to 1,000 by the end of the year with the building of a third facility. The Wichita-based firm is investing $20 million in a 180,000square-foot plant in Chihuahua, Mexico, to do sheet metal assembly work for King Air turboprops and Hawker jets along with electrical assembly work. “We have seen a high level of quality and craftsmanship coming out of the skilled work force

in Chihuahua,” Hawker Beechcraft CEO Bill Boisture said during a conference call Thursday. The Wichita Eagle reported Boisture declined to give details on the incentives the company will receive. He said the company has “great support” from the Mexican government, a key factor in its decision to expand there. Hawker Beechcraft announced last year that it is closing two plants in Wichita and moving the work from there, along with King Air-related

back shop operations, to outside suppliers and to Mexico. “This new facility will absorb some of the sheet metal fabrication work that’s moving out of these other, older facilities,” Boisture said. The company is also transferring about $25 million of work to outside suppliers across Kansas, although the work won’t be done in Wichita, Boisture said. Hawker Beechcraft opened its first facility in Chihuahua in 2007 to manufacture light sheet metal assembly. It currently has 400 workers at the two plants,

and plans to expand that number to 1,000 when it opens its third facility. “With the opening of its second plant in the city, Hawker Beechcraft reaffirms its commitment to the state of Chihuahua,” Cesar Horacio Duarte Jaquez, governor of the state of Chihuahua, said in a statement. A key factor in choosing Chihuahua was its High Technology Training Center CENALTEC Campus Chihuahua, a training center for machining, sheet metal, painting and other techniques and processes.

“Those guys are far better suited for it,” Ulrich said. “A lot of times it is pretty wet here and we can’t plant wheat if wanted to.” But this year, western Kansas is suffering from too little moisture. In many fields, the wheat hasn’t started growing. And typically when wheat doesn’t come up after the first of the year, farmers are looking at a 40 to 60 percent reduction in yield, said Jim Shroyer,

Ballard has worked with college-aged students and served as the director of Emily Taylor Women’s Resource Center at Kansas University for 18 years. During her tenure, she was instrumental in a campuswide LEGISLATURE survey related to the prevalence of sexual assault and the need for services, the group said. She also worked with student leaders to establish a part-time position to promote sexual violence awareness and education initiatives on campus and in the community.

said Wulfkuhle, who farms near Stull and planted about 300 acres of wheat this year. While the “wheat looks pretty decent” in Ulrich’s fields, the crop still has a long way to go before being harvested at the end of June. “With these warm days it’s going to go ahead and break dormancy and start growing. That’s the toughest time. With cold, wet conditions that is where you get issues with mildew and fungus,” Ulrich said.

al privilege presented a proclamation honoring his family’s bank. He also used the occasion to give a speech condemning what he called overregulation of the banking industry. After the speech, House Speaker Mike O'Neal, RHutchinson, reminded legislators that House rules allow up to five minutes on points of personal privilege.

Legislator gives support, but not vote

A proposal that critics said would have neutralized a Lawrence ordinance that bans discrimination based on sexual orientation has been tabled in the House Judiciary Committee. House Bill 2260, dubbed the “Religious Freedom Restoration Act” would have prohibited government from denying the exercise of religion. Supporters said it was needed to prevent government from forcing people to go against their religious beliefs, but opponents said it was a deceptive way to allow discrimination against gays, lesbians and transgendered Kansans.

How a poor harvest in western Kansas would influence prices for wheat grown in Douglas County is still unclear, farmers said. With Russia and South America driving prices around the world, western Kansas’ harvest might not have much of an effect, local farmer Lloyd Wulfkuhle said. “It’s such a world market,”

driven outcomes and patience. As an officer in the U.S. Air Force for 24 years, Roth spent time flying combat missions in southeast Asia, designing components for the F-15 fighter and overseeing operations and infrastructure issues at a military base in Panama. He went on to work for 10 years at Lockheed Martin, working on “launch vehicles” — aka rockets — that included programs associated with the Space Shuttle program. Then he retired and launched his own business: Saber Air, providing flight training and air charter service while he and his wife, Peggy, farmed — 465 acres with 80 cows, three bulls and plenty of sheep, goats and chickens — in Breckenridge and Gallatin, Mo. Roth figures he’s taught 200 people how to fly singleengine planes, how to make instrument landings and how to otherwise manage in multi-engine aircraft. “I’ve got to be able to sit in the airplane and tell you what to do and explain it to you, and

It’s absolutely critical that we emphasize science. Other countries are getting ahead of us in areas of scientific innovation.” — Bill Roth, candidate for the Lawrence school board if you can’t do it right I have to show it to you,” he said. “It takes a lot of patience.” Roth is a graduate of the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, N.Y., and received a master’s degree in business administration from the University of Southern California. His father was in the Air Force, meaning he moved around a bit as a kid, attending public and private schools in Ohio, Los Angeles and the Washington, D.C., metro area. “It makes you very openminded and accepting and flexible,” Roth said. “You hope you’re flexible in your thinking.” He’s a member of the Science, Technology, Engineering and Math Committee at Wakarusa Valley School, where his son, Omar, is in fourth grade. A daughter, Mya, is in seventh grade at South Junior High School. He has four other children and a grandchild from a previous marriage. At Wakarusa Valley, Roth

helped lead a project to donate a system that uses the sun’s rays to boost the temperature of water for the kitchen. The system’s benefits are twofold, he said: both saving the district money on its utilities and, more importantly, providing an example for students to learn about the importance of technology and environmental awareness. By the time Wakarusa Valley’s students leave school, he said, half of the country’s work force will be involved in alternative energy. “They need to be tuned in,” Roth said. “It’s absolutely critical that we emphasize science. Other countries are getting ahead of us in areas of scientific innovation. You’ve got to have people going into that area, and who are interested in it. And you can’t make kids aware of that until you tell them and start demonstrating it.” — Schools reporter Mark Fagan can be reached at 832-7188.

Unique event Bringing some Kansas Relays events to downtown Lawrence is a nice example of town-gown cooperation.

A

recent event approved by the Lawrence City Commission may prove to be a unique shot in the arm to a Lawrence tradition that deserves a higher profile. It certainly will be a unique shot put event. City commissioners have signed off on a plan to close the intersection of Eighth and New Hampshire streets on April 20 to host an elite-level shot put competition as part of the Kansas Relays. Sand, gravel and a special shot put platform will be placed in the middle of the street, and world class athletes will compete for the Kansas Relays title in front of a downtown crowd. The following day, a longjump event and mile race featuring top athletes also will be held downtown. Kansas University officials believe the shot put competition will be a first-of-its-kind event in the United States. It evidently is creating some excitement in the shot put community. Currently, the No. 1, 3, 7, 14 and 22 ranked shot putters in the world are scheduled to compete. The event should create some excitement in Lawrence circles too. It is good, and somewhat overdue, that KU and community leaders are working hard to promote the Kansas Relays. It is a great event that dates back to the 1920s, and is a good reminder of KU’s outstanding track and field history. For decades, KU track and field athletes often set the pace that other competitors tried to match. Now, it appears that KU, the city and downtown are working to pick up the pace on making Kansas athletics an even bigger part of our draw as a vibrant, university community. Hopefully, the downtown events will help spur attendance at the main Relays venue, Memorial Stadium. The event will be free to the public to attend, which is a positive sign that KU leaders are doing this for all the right reasons. While we still must be careful about when we choose to close down city streets, everyone involved with this event deserves congratulations for their creative thinking. And, please excuse the pun, we hope this “puts” some excitement back into the relays. Even more so, we hope it puts us on a path of greater cooperation between Kansas Athletics and the broader community. Such a partnership could create many more world-class endeavors.

Lincoln inaugural had lasting impact Seven states had left the Union. Fort Sumter needed to be resupplied. Washington was in upheaval, sharpshooters were deployed to the roofs of buildings, a light-artillery battalion was installed on Capitol Hill. It was in this atmosphere, 150 years ago this week, that Abraham Lincoln took the oath of office. In more than two centuries of turning points — George Washington’s victory at Yorktown, Woodrow Wilson’s decision to enter a great European war, Franklin Roosevelt’s unveiling of the New Deal, the attacks of 1941 and 2001 — this may have been America’s greatest, most dangerous, most portentous. At stake on March 4, 1861, was more than the survival of the nation. At stake were the values that created the nation. In the hands of history was a man with little formal education, no conventional religion, no executive experience, only two years’ time in the House of Representatives, a distracting and difficult family situation — but with a deep understanding of the land, a natural mastery of language, an intuitive insight into human nature and an unfailing comprehension of the consequences of his thoughts and deeds. He knew the country and he knew his mind. He loved the Union, deplored slavery, and before his first term was over would determine that the survival of the one required the obliteration of the other. A man who had not done much with his first 52 years would accomplish two great things in his last four years. He would save the United States and, by ending slavery, he would make it worth saving. This was a moment like no other in our history. Handing the presidency over to Lincoln was Pennsylvania’s only chief execu-

David Shribman the country “andHeheknew knew his mind.

He loved the Union, deplored slavery, and before his first term was over would determine that the survival of the one required the obliteration of the other.”

tive, poor James Buchanan, one of America’s great secretaries of state and perhaps its worst president, a man who had done little to forestall war and less to understand the great forces of his time. “He frequently examines the Constitution, and the more he looks at it the less he finds in it,” the Times of London wrote, adding: “The war which he could not make he now finds that he has no power to prevent.” Joining the new president in his administration was William H. Seward, who, as a showy public figure and relentless attentionseeker, was Lincoln’s opposite in character but, fortunately for the nation, was Lincoln’s equal in intelligence. And while it is tempting — indeed, it would be Seward’s fondest wish — to say that together they created one of the most significant inaugural addresses in history, the remarks that Lincoln uttered against the greatest metaphorical backdrop in America’s pageant (the scaffolding on the Capitol, symbolic

of the unfinished nature of the country) were pure Lincoln. Lincoln had left Springfield, Ill., three weeks earlier with a draft of his speech, the product, wrote Douglas L. Wilson, an expert on Lincoln, of “considerable drafting and revision.” The story of how Seward worked over Lincoln’s draft and provided what Seward’s son called “suggestions for a closing paragraph” is well known, but what is remarkable is how the presidentelect salvaged words Seward abandoned and reshaped them into a statement all his own — one that now is all our own. The final paragraph of the final version reads this way: “I am loath to close. We are not enemies, but friends. We must not be enemies. Though passion may have strained, it must not break our bonds of affection. The mystic chords of memory, stretching from every battlefield and patriot grave to every living heart and hearthstone all over this broad land, will yet swell the chorus of the Union, when again touched, as surely they will be, by the better angels of our nature.” The paragraph that preceded that coda for the ages is instructive. Lincoln opened it by underlining what he would disprove — the very American notion that the will of the people is more important than the will of a national leader. “In your hands, my dissatisfied fellow countrymen, and not in mine,” he said, “is the momentous issue of civil war.” There was, of course, a kernel of truth in that, as Hosni Mubarak could testify. But, perhaps even more so than Franklin Roosevelt, Lincoln would reshape the presidency into what FDR called it — pre-eminently a place of moral leadership. To his countrymen, Lincoln’s

OLD HOME TOWN From the Lawrence Daily JournalWorld for Feb. 28, 1911: "A little matrimonial carelessness may cause Wallace K. Pringle some YEARS slight embarrassment, Wallace became AGO enamored of an affinity before his IN 1911 degree of divorce became operative, and after securing a license to wed in Missouri, thoughtlessly returned to Lawrence and within the jurisdiction of the Douglas county court. This morning he and his bride made a successful race for the Santa Fe with a sheriff, two policemen, and an attorney in wild pursuit. The groom's former wife, Mrs. Mayme Pringle, is still in town and as soon as she heard of the former's matrimonial ventures, she phoned her attorney. The latter promptly drew a complaint charging Pringle with bigamy, and notified the officers to arrest him on sight.”

address represented an end to his great post-election silence. Only days before his inauguration, Frederick Douglass wrote, hopefully, of Lincoln’s “stately silence during these last tumultuous and stormy three months, his stern refusal thus far to commit himself to any of the much-advocated schemes of compromise, his refusal to have concessions extorted from him under the terror instituted by thievish conspirators and traitors.” We know what Lincoln’s remarks mean to us now. They were the first indication that the new president, characterized as a baboon, castigated as a backwoods babbler more suited to the splitting of rails than the adjudication of hard political problems, was more than presidential. He was — to choose a word at odds with our traditions and applicable to only one other president, George Washington — regal. “Beyond the immediate hearers was the vast unseen audience that would read the address in cold print,” wrote Carl Sandburg in his lyrical if not exactly historical biography of Lincoln. “Never before in New York had such crowds waited at newspaper offices and jammed and scrambled for the first sheets wet from the press. In its week of delivery, it was the most widely read and closely scrutinized utterance that had ever come from an American president.” American presidents have delivered 56 inaugural addresses and only five are quoted today. One is from Jefferson, one from Franklin Roosevelt, one from John F. Kennedy. Two are from Lincoln. His remarks a century and a half ago are mystic chords of memory, delivered at the most frightful juncture in our history.

Teach for America is an agent of change WASHINGTON — For Princetonians, the senior thesis is a high hurdle before graduation. For Wendy Kopp, class of 1989, it became a career devoted to transforming primary and secondary education. What began as an idea for a teacher corps for hard-to-staff schools, urban and rural, became Teach for America. At first it was merely a leavening ingredient in education; it has become a template for transformation. Back then, Kopp’s generation was stigmatized by journalistic sociology as “the ‘me’ generation” composed of materialists eager to be recruited into careers of quick self-enrichment. She thought the problem was not her peers but the recruiters. So she became one. This academic year, 16 percent of Princeton’s seniors and 18 percent of Harvard’s applied to join Teach for America, of which Kopp is CEO. TFA is the largest employer of recent graduates from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. Eight percent of seniors at the University of Michigan (undergraduate enrollment: 26,830) applied last year for TFA’s two-year commitments. More than 5 percent of graduating seniors at 130 colleges are applicants. Kopp began by “meeting anyone who would meet with me,” soliciting corporate executives for seed money. She believed something that bemused skeptics — that students from elite schools

would volunteer to have their first experience out of college teaching in difficult-to-staff schools in areas of urban and rural poverty. “I knew college students would do it — I had just been a college student.” What was needed, she thought, was a high-status service organization with an aura of selectivity. Raised in comfortable circumstances in Dallas, Kopp precociously understood not just the importance of education but the educational importance of where one is born. TFA’s first recruiting was done by fliers shoved under dorm room doors. Her Yale recruiter had 170 messages on his answering machine in just three days. TFA’s first cohort totaled 500 teachers. This year TFA will select 5,300 from 48,000 applicants, making it more selective than most colleges. This school year, there are 8,000 TFA teachers. Of the 20,000 TFA alumni, two-thirds are still working full-time in education. Of those, only one in six says that

even without TFA he or she might have gone into K-12 teaching. TFA has become a flourishing reproach to departments and schools of education. It pours talent into the educational system — 80 percent of its teachers are in traditional public schools — talent that flows around the barriers of the credentialing process. Hence TFA works against the homogenization that discourages innovation and prevents the cream from rising. Kopp, whose new book (“A Chance to Make History”) recounts her post-Princeton education, has learned, among much else, this: Of the 15 million children growing up in poverty, 50 percent will not graduate from high school, and the half that do will have eighth-grade skill levels compared to those from higherincome families and neighborhoods. Until recently — until, among other things, TFA — it seemed that we simply did not know how to teach children handicapped by poverty and its accompaniments — family disintegration and destructive community cultures. Now we know exactly what to do. In government, the axiom is: Personnel is policy. In education, Kopp believes, “people are everything” — good ones are (in military parlance) “force multipliers.” Creating “islands of excellence” depends entirely on f inding

“transformational leaders deeply committed to changing the trajectories” of children’s lives. We do not, she insists, have to fix society or even families in order to fix education. It works the other way around. The movie “Waiting for Superman” dramatizes what TFA has demonstrated — that low-income parents leap at educational opportunities that can break the cycle of poverty. Teaching successfully in challenging schools is, Kopp says, “totally an act of leadership” by people passionately invested in the project. Speaking of leadership, someone in Congress should invest some on TFA’s behalf. Government funding — federal, state, local — is just 30 percent of TFA’s budget. Last year’s federal allocation, $21 million, would be a rounding error in the General Motors bailout. And Kopp says every federal dollar leverages six non-federal dollars. All that money might, however, be lost because even when Washington does something right, it does it wrong. It has obtusely defined “earmark” to include “any named program,” so TFA has been declared an earmark and sentenced to death. If Congress cannot understand how nonsensical this is, it should be sent back to school for remedial instruction from some of TFA’s exemplary young people. — George Will is a columnist for Washington Post Writers Group.

BRIEFLY

KANSAS CITY, MO. — Kansas City police have been investigating the death of a pedestrian who was struck and killed by a city bus. The accident happened Sunday afternoon at a busy intersection, at Linwood Boulevard and Main Street, and involved a Kansas City Area Transportation Authority bus. KMBC-TV reported that witnesses said the woman had been running alongside the bus and pounding it, perhaps trying to get the driver’s attention. The victim’s name was being withheld Sunday while relatives were notified.

Wichita police make more DUI arrests WICHITA — Police say DUI arrests have increased more than 25 percent in Wichita this year over 2010. Lt. Joe Schroeder told The Wichita Eagle that the increase stems from a heightened emphasis by police to watch for impaired drivers. He said it’s “not necessarily” because there are more drunken drivers on the roads. Police made 280 DUI arrests through the first two months

of last year. Through late last week, police statistics show there were 356 DUI arrests so far this year in Wichita. Schroeder said a state law mandating blood tests for drivers involved in serious crashes where driving errors occurred has also played a role in the increase.

Artist Christo awaits decision on project DENVER — The artist Christo expects federal land managers to release a final environmental impact statement on April 1 for his proposal to suspend nearly six miles worth of fabric over the Arkansas River for two weeks. The earliest the “Over the River” project could happen is August 2014. The Bureau of Land Management is currently reviewing comments on its draft environmental impact statement of the proposal. The draft lists alternatives to Christo’s plan, but Christo supports only his original proposal. After the BLM issues its final environmental impact statement, it will issue a record of decision on whether the project can proceed as Christo proposed. Christo’s team says it expects the record of decision in June.

KU MEN’S BASKETBALL SENIOR NIGHT

Eric Sorrentino esorrentino@ljworld.com

Who’s in, who’s not in Big 12

Biggest winner?

Editor’s note: The following is an entry from Eric Sorrentino’s Conference Chatter blog, which takes a look at features and trends in the Big 12, on KUsports.com. It’s going to be difficult to fill out my NCAA Tournament bracket this year. Three more teams ranked in the top 5 of the Associated Press poll faltered over the weekend, leaving no overwhelming favorite presiding over the college basketball world. Top-ranked Duke, No. 4 Pittsburgh and No. 5 Texas were the latest victims to go down this week. The path to the Final Four in Houston should be filled with mystery, madness and Gus Johnson going berserk behind the microphone. The Big 12 storyline of the weekend was the mayhem in Boulder, Colo., where Colorado stormed back from a 22-point deficit to take down Texas. The Longhorns dropped to 12-2 in the league, opening a door that Kansas gladly walked through with an 82-70 victory over Oklahoma. KU improved to 12-2 in the league, keeping its quest for a seventh consecutive Big 12 regular-season title within reach. KU’s remaining schedule: vs. Texas A&M, at Missouri. UT’s remaining schedule: vs. Kansas State, at Baylor. Advantage? KU has the tougher road game. It’s probably close to a push, though. Onto some Conference Chatter bullet-point observations after the weekend’s action: ■ Have any plans tonight? Hopefully not. Kansas State travels to Texas in what should be a thrilling matchup at 8 p.m. on ESPN. A month ago, this would not have been nearly as exciting. But K-State has won six of its past seven games. The Wildcats will face a ticked-off Texas squad that will be ready to hit the court after the loss at CU. I get the sense most KU fans are rooting for K-State, despite the Sunflower rivalry. Winning the league title outright appears to be more important than simply rooting against the in-state rivals. If I’m off on this, let me know. ■ K-State senior Jacob Pullen probably doesn’t have to worry about the NIT. The Cats, at 20-9 and 8-6 in the Big 12, appear to be headed to the NCAA Tournament. ■ Before the weekend, ESPN’s Joe Lunardi had five Big 12 schools cracking the tournament field. I see six: Kansas, Texas, Texas A&M, Missouri, Kansas State, and either Baylor or Colorado. Baylor’s remaining schedule: at Oklahoma State, vs. Texas. Colorado’s remaining schedule: at Iowa State, vs. Nebraska. Advantage: Buffs. ■ Big 12 player of the year, to this point: Jordan Hamilton, Texas. Still in the running: Marcus Morris, Kansas. ■ Big 12 coach of the year, to this point: Rick Barnes, Texas. Still in the running: Tad Boyle, Colorado (if UT slips up again and CU wins out). ■ My early All-Big 12 first team hasn’t changed from last week: Kansas State’s Pullen, Baylor’s LaceDarius Dunn, Colorado’s Alec Burks, Texas’ Hamilton, KU’s Marcus Morris.

KANSAS GUARD TYREL REED (14) CELEBRATES A DUNK by teammate Josh Selby against Miami (Ohio) University in this file photo from Jan. 2 at Allen Fieldhouse. Reed will play his final game in the fieldhouse on Wednesday.

Reed could become all-time winningest Jayhawk By Gary Bedore gbedore@ljworld.com

Born in Kansas and raised as a Kansas University basketball fan, Tyrel Reed now has a chance to become the winningest Jayhawk player of all-time. “I mean, that would be really awesome, just considering everyone that’s played here — all the great ones,” said Reed, a 6-foot-3 senior guard from Burlington who has been part of 124 KU victories against just 16 losses.

“It’s a tribute to all the great teams I’ve been on here, all the great teammates I’ve had as well,” added Reed, who is six wins shy of tying Sherron Collins’ 130-win mark compiled from 2007 to 2010. The Jayhawks, who take a 27-2 record into Wednesday’s 8 p.m. Senior Day contest against Texas A&M, have two games remaining in the regular season. KU could play as many as three games in the Big 12 postseason tournament and six in the NCAAs. “It’d be a really cool honor, but

nothing I really think about,” Reed said of emerging as No. 1 Jayhawk in the all-time win column. Truth be known, the unassuming Reed would love to set the mark with fellow Kansan Brady Morningstar. Morningstar, however, is credited with just 120 victories. The 37 games his red-shirt sophomore season do not count in his win total, instead replaced by the 33 victories his true freshman season. “I feel blessed Brady and I were able to play here at Kansas,” Reed

said of Lawrence native Morningstar, who also will be honored on Senior Day with Reed and Chicago senior Mario Little. “I’m not saying that it’s the coolest thing ever, but we are fortunate enough to have been out there and excited about it. “I played with Brady in high school.

Kansas University’s men’s basketball players had hoped to play host to more than 100 Special Olympians at the 27th-annual Wilt Chamberlain Clinic, held Sunday afternoon in Allen Fieldhouse. Instead, foggy weather prevented the Jayhawks from returning from Norman, Okla. — site of Saturday’s 82-70 victory over the Oklahoma Sooners — until 6:45 p.m. Sunday, several hours after the conclusion of the clinic, which was rescued by KU’s women’s team. “It was not the best way to spend a day off,” KU coach Bill Self said of a day that started on a plane and ended on a bus. “By far the worst thing about it

was not being able to be with the Special Olympians. Because of the weather, we just couldn’t be there. “Fortunately for us, Bonnie (Henrickson, KU women’s coach) and her staff and players filled in,” Self said. “I’m sure the Special Olympians had a great time with Bonnie and the players.” Judging from the smiles on the faces of the Special Olympians and KU women’s players, that indeed was the case. “We heard the guys were stuck,” said Jayhawk forward Carolyn Davis, who scored a career-high 36 points in Saturday’s home victory over Nebraska, “but we didn’t think they wouldn’t be able to get back. We were excited when coach told us we were going to fill in

Butler lifts Royals in Cactus opener SURPRISE, ARIZ. (AP) — Billy Butler was born in April 1986, six months after the Kansas City Royals won the World Series in their last playoff appearance. He got a $30 million, four-year contract this winter with hopes of helping end that quarter-century postseason drought. Butler had a two-run single and a stolen base in the first inning Sunday as the Royals beat the defending AL champion Texas Rangers, 4-2, in the Cactus League

opener for the teams that share a spring training complex. In 533 career regular-season games over the past four seasons, Butler had only one stolen base. “Billy got one in an intrasquad game, too. You Butler can pick your spot in those situations,” Royals

NATIONAL BRIEFS Hall of Fame CF Duke Snider dies To his mother, he was Ed. To everyone else, he was “The Duke of Flatbush” — revered by a borough of baseball fans and forever remembered in a song that romanticized a most golden era. Duke Snider, the Hall of Fame center fielder for the charmed “Boys of Summer” who helped the Dodgers bring their elusive and only World Series crown to Brooklyn, died Sunday. He was 84. Snider died at the Valle Vista Convalescent Hospital in Escondido, Calif., according to the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum, which announced the death on behalf of the family. Snider had been ill for months. His family said he died of natural causes. Snider hit .295 with 407 career home runs, played in the World Series six times and won two titles.

MLB Webb throws off mound for Texas Texas Rangers pitcher Brandon Webb was back where he wanted to be: throwing off a pitcher’s mound. The former NL Cy Young winner, who hasn’t pitched in the majors since the 2009 season opener for Arizona because of shoulder surgery, was on the mound for the first time in 10 days. In other spring training news: ■ In Peoria, Ariz., outfielder Jody Gerut said he was retiring after six seasons in the majors. The 33-year-old Gerut appeared in 574 games in stints with Cleveland, the Chicago Cubs, Pittsburgh, San Diego and Milwaukee. He finished with a career batting average of .262 and had 472 hits. ■ At Clearwater, Fla., Philadelphia Phillies All-Star second baseman Chase Utley has patella tendinitis in his right knee and missed his second straight game Sunday.

AUTO RACING Gordon ends winless streak at 66 AVONDALE, ARIZ. — Just before peeling off what he called a lame burnout near the finish line, Jeff Gordon screamed into his radio, the emotion pouring out with his voice. “We just beat Kyle Busch!” he yelled. Gordon did much more than that. He was headed back to Victory Circle, the longest winless streak of his career finally in the rearview mirror. Overcoming a slew of potentially disastrous incidents, Gordon passed Kyle Busch with eight laps left and stretched his lead from there, ending his winless streak at 66 races Sunday at Phoenix International Raceway. “It feels so amazing. I can’t tell you how amazing this feels,” Gordon said. “It’s been a long time, I know, and I’m going to savor this one so much.”

GOLF Donald upends No. 1 Kaymer MARANA, ARIZ. — Luke Donald spoiled Martin Kaymer’s rise to No. 1 in the world by winning the Match Play Championship on Sunday with a performance so dominant he never played the 18th hole all week.

COLLEGE BASKETBALL Monmouth coach resigns PISCATAWAY, N.J. — Dave Calloway resigned under pressure as Monmouth University’s basketball coach after 14 seasons. Athletic Director Marilyn McNeil informed Calloway Sunday that the university planned to hire a new coach after the Hawks suffered their fifth straight losing season and missed the Northeast Conference tournament.

Georgia State fires Barnes ATLANTA — Georgia State coach Rod Barnes was fired after four seasons and will not be on the bench for the Colonial Athletic Association tournament. Athletic director Cheryl L. Levick said Sunday assistant Paul Graham will serve as interim coach.

TENNIS Del Potro wins first title since ‘09 DELRAY BEACH, FLA. — Juan Martin del Potro won his first title in his first final since capturing the 2009 U.S. Open with a 6-4, 6-4 victory over Janko Tipsarevic on Sunday.

credited with an infield single and went to second on the throwing error. After putting the Royals up, 2-0, Butler got his stolen base. “I’ve never had the green light. I got it under situations, mostly on breaking-ball counts,” Butler said. “Whenever I’ve got a hunch, he’s pretty much turned us loose right now. If I don’t abuse it, I think we can expand it. ... I’ve progressed forward, didn’t get thrown out by 20 feet, so I think I’ll try it again.”

manager Ned Yost said. “We’re looking to do that whenever we can. He’ll surprise some people.” Butler had the third consecutive groundball single to start the game off left-hander C.J. Wilson. Mike Aviles led off with a single through the left side of the infield, then Melky Cabrera’s grounder was backhanded by third baseman Michael Young near the line. But his throw went out of play when Cabrera collided with first baseman Mitch Moreland. Cabrera was

today. We’re one program here. We knew we could help out. “This is always a lot of fun for us. It’s fun to learn from them (Olympians) and to teach them. We’re all here to have fun.” What the Jayhawk men went through after defeating the Sooners cannot be classified as fun. They were unable to fly on their charter jet from Oklahoma City to Topeka Saturday night because of dense fog in Kansas. An alternate plan to fly to Wichita and drive to Lawrence was shelved when buses were unavailable in Wichita. After spending the night in OKC, the Jayhawks re-boarded their charter at 10 a.m. Sunday. The plane made its way to Topeka, circling for a half hour, before unrelenting fog forced a re-route to Tulsa. After spending three hours in Tulsa, the Jayhawks finally boarded a bus that carried the team to Allen Fieldhouse. “The guys are in good spirits. They handled it well.

We’re safe and sound,” Self said, noting, “there’s been some weird weather (last two days).” Henrickson said the women’s players were happy to have chipped in. “We did this in January with Douglas County (Special Olympics). We told our kids, ‘You are so good at it, we’re going to do it again,’’’ Henrickson said. “Our players will tell you it’s one of the best things we do all year. It’s been good.

pension. Elijah Johnson appears to have the stats on his side — he’s not had a game with more than two turnovers all season — but how much will his inexperience play a factor in the tournament? Josh Selby’s stress reaction in his foot is clearly affecting his play. Since coming back from the injury after missing three games, he’s yet to score in double figures. His field goal percentage since returning from injury is 25.9 percent in four games. Kansas will need a steady floor general in time for the tourney.

Reed

“I have supreme love for the game and supreme love for the place I’m at now,” said Reed, who remembers asking former KU player Paul Pierce for an autograph one summer at Williams’ basketball camp. As far as where he’ll wind up after KU? A 3.65-GPA student, Reed graduated in December with a degree in pre-physical therapy and exercise science. He’s been accepted into KU Medical School’s physical-therapy program, with the option of delaying enrollment to fulfill his dream of playing pro basketball. “I’ve not thought about it a lot. I’m focused on this season and want to finish it the right way,” Reed said. “If I had the opportunity to go play basketball, I think it’d be a cool experience. I’d do my best and take that opportunity.” He finds it impossible to believe his home career ends Wednesday night. Tipoff is 8 p.m., with the seniors to be introduced with their families before the game and speeches to follow after the final horn. “It’s pretty crazy. I try not to think about it at all,” Reed said of not being able to run through the northwest tunnel again. “I don’t want to act like there’s going to be an end. I know there’s going to be a last game, and it’s coming up Wednesday night, and I can’t hold onto it. I’ve just got to let it come and enjoy it.”

we were not as close as I’d have liked or thought we’d have been. As our junior and senior years rolled around, we’ve gotten to be real close and good friends. He is just a funny kid. I enjoy being around him. I’m glad we’ve got a lot of experiences and memories to share the rest of our lives.” Morningstar — he agrees it took a while for him and Reed to bond — said, “Our first few years we never talked about the things we had in common, like both being from Kansas. I hung out with Sherron and Shady (Darrell Arthur), and he was always with Cole (Aldrich) and everybody else. The past two years we’ve gotten pretty close and have become great friends.” Morningstar smiled when asked if Reed is everything he appears to be to outsiders — a polite, intelligent, three-time academic All-Big 12 pick and current first-team Academic All-American almost too good to be true. “Yes, he is,” Morningstar said. “He is a great kid. I mean, f irst-team Academic AllAmerican. That’s as impressive as it gets. You don’t get that by just getting by in school. You have to do extra

stuff. He deserves that for sure.” Also, “He’s a really good player,” Morningstar said. Reed is KU’s only player to have started all 29 games. He’s second on the team in minutes (27.4 a game) and fourth overall in scoring (9.8 points) with a team-leading 56 threes in 143 tries. “I’ve always tried to be a hard worker,” Reed said. “I know I am not going to be the most athletic, most talented, fastest, smartest kid out there, but I just try to make up for it with hard work and determination and doing your best. “I’m sure there were (doubters), me being from Kansas ... a small-town school,” he added. “Not getting the national recognition that a lot of the other players who come here have. I just tried to never doubt myself, always be confident and try to do the best I can.” Reed needed a moment to reflect when asked where he’d have attended college had KU passed on recruiting the Burlington bomber. “I don’t know. I was being recruited by coach (Roy) Williams at North Carolina. I signed in the fall (of senior year). If I’d waited until the spring, I think I might have gone there or maybe ended up at Stanford or some place,” Reed said. He’s happy to have gobbled up a scholarship offer at KU.

COLLEGE BASKETBALL ROUNDUP

Louisville stuns Pitt in OT The Associated Press

No. 16 Louisville 62, No. 4 Pittsburgh 59, OT LOUISVILLE, KY. — Kyle Kuric scored 12 points, including two big baskets in overtime, and the Cardinals held on through a bizarre ending to the extra session on Sunday. The clock didn’t stop after the basket, which put the Cardinals up 62-57, and the horn sounded. Some Louisville cheerleaders on the baseline raced onto the floor, with one male cheerleader grabbing the ball and tossing it in the air. Officials called Louisville for a delay of game technical foul and put .5 seconds back on the clock. Pitt’s Ashton Gibbs knocked down two free throws and the Panthers had one last chance to tie, but Gibbs couldn’t get off a desperation heave in time.

No. 2 Ohio St. 82, Indiana 61 COLUMBUS, OHIO — Deshaun Thomas came out of a slump with 22 points.

Zeller scored 25 points, while Harrison Barnes had 21 to help the Tar Heels pull into a tie with Duke atop the ACC.

GREENSBORO, N.C. — Kansas University freshman Kristin Martinez threw a completegame two-hitter, and the Jayhawks won their third tournament title in three weeks with a 1-0 victory over Minnesota in the championship game of the UNCG Spartan Classic on Sunday. The outcome avenged KU’s loss to the Golden Gophers on Friday on the tournament’s first day. The Jayhawks improved to 4-1 at the tourney and 14-1 overall. Minnesota fell to 7-7 overall. “Kristin Martinez has to be heralded for her performance today,” KU coach Megan Smith said. “They couldn’t touch her. She took command of the game and kept com-

mand and we are really proud of her.” Martinez (6-0) allowed just six runners and struck out five. She walked just one. Kansas scored the game’s only run on an RBI double from Marissa Ingle in the seventh. Freshman Ashley Newman beat out a throw to first to safely reach base for KU’s fifth hit. Ingle then stepped to the plate and roped a double down the left-field line as Newman scored all the way from first. The Golden Gophers’ Sara Moulton fanned nine Jayhawks during the pitcher’s duel but gave up seven hits, including two to senior Brittany Hile. The Jayhawks will travel March 4-6 to Las Vegas for the UNLV Eller Media Stadium Classic.

Since then, I have felt shamed and unlovable. When I started school, I was terrified that somehow the other children would find out about it. I have had two bad marriages and don’t date.

Explain that you want this marriage to work out, but there are obvious problems and you need to know he is medically OK. If he refuses to seek help, it may be necessary for you to walk away. A generous husband and a beautiful home don’t seem worth this abuse.

Marcy Sugar and Kathy Mitchell

Dear Texas: Your father chose to bully you to make his point, but we doubt he wanted it to have lifelong consequences. We hope you can continue to work on your feelings with your support group. — Please e-mail your questions to anniesmailbox@comcast.net, or write to Annie’s Mailbox, P.O.

Anthony Bourdain embarks on a seventh season of “No Reservations” (8 p.m., Travel). This year, the ever-opinionated Bourdain will concentrate on less-thantrendy destinations, including disaster areas in Haiti and former political hotspots such as Nicaragua and Cambodia. Along the way, he will squeeze in a visit to the American Ozarks. Let’s hope the change of scenery agrees with Bourdain. I couldn’t help feeling that he was treading water during his last season. He showed a lot of home movies and reminded us that he wasn’t always famous. His patented snark and his “I used to do heroin and that makes me cooler than Rachael Ray” routine has worn rather thin. Yeah, Tony, we get it. You liked the Ramones before anybody. You’re beginning to sound a lot like the old bores you like to complain about. And that’s kind of sad. ● Can we learn from the events of a century ago? The hour-long “American Experience” (8 p.m., PBS, check local listings) presentation “Triangle Fire” recalls the horrific fire that broke out at the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory on March 25, 1911. Onehundred-forty-six garment workers perished, most of them young girls, immigrants from Eastern Europe and Italy who had come to New York to pursue the American dream. “Triangle” reminds us how New Yorkers responded to the tragedy by enacting some of the toughest workplace safety regulations in the country. It also places the fire in social and historical context. The Triangle factory had been a hotbed of union organizing and its workers had complained about the very safety hazards, including locked doors and inadequate egress, that would lead to so many horrible deaths. We’re also informed that Max Blanck and Isaac Harris, the founders and owners of Triangle, were themselves immigrants who had built up their fortune after arriving penniless in America. Their vision of the American dream was a system that protected property owners from the demands of organized labor. Like many of the wealthy of their day, they saw the workers’ demands for safer conditions, shorter hours and increased wages as an assault on their hard-earned fortune and nothing short of a socialist revolution that would destroy the American way of life. “Triangle” does a nice job of laying out both sides of these issues, as well as describing the pressures the manufacturers were under in the face of changing fashions. And it does so in an economical 60 minutes. ● A self-involved New Yorker squabbles with her husband on “Bethenny Ever After” (9 p.m., Bravo), an odious reality series that makes “Tori & Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood” seem like a paragon of sparkling wit.

Tonight’s other highlights ● An accident blows a worker’s secret on “House” (7 p.m., Fox). ● The gang infiltrates Scales’ lair on “The Cape” (8 p.m., NBC). ● A bomber strikes city facilities on “The Chicago Code” (8 p.m., Fox). ● A hit squad targets a visiting former despot on “Hawaii Five-O” (9 p.m., CBS). ● An imminent crisis draws Beckett and Castle together on “Castle” (9 p.m., ABC).

JACQUELINE BIGAR’S STARS For Monday, Feb. 28: This year, you find the ability to move through issues quickly and effectively. Often you hear information that makes you shake your head. Confirm facts more often than not. If you are single, you develop a greater sense of self. If you are attached, the two of you build a more rewarding life because of a decision you make together. Capricorn is really your friend. The Stars Show the Kind of Day You'll Have: 5Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult Aries (March 21-April 19) ★★★★ Others look up to you. You might be hardpressed to achieve your desired goals. Examine bottom lines and perhaps rethink your approach. Tonight: A meeting or gettogether with friends. Taurus (April 20-May 20) ★★★★★ Take a negative and turn it into a positive as you attempt to get past the obvious issue. You open up to a new universe, making new possibilities happen. Tonight: Be willing to take a stand. Gemini (May 21-June 20) ★★★★★ Work with a partner, but be willing to take a stand. Your discomfort marks a situation, but

you can get past the issue. Tonight: Walk through an open door. Cancer (June 21-July 22) ★★★★ Others seem to demand a lot, and in all likelihood, you will attempt to meet those requests. Be a good listener and remain open to new ideas. Tonight: Find your favorite person. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) ★★★★ Clear as much off your plate as you can, as opportunities of a different type come forward. It would be a shame to have to say no. Tonight: Value an invitation. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) ★★★★ Toss yourself into an activity, not halfway, but completely. When involved in this manner, all your different skills flow in one direction and don't scatter. Tonight: The only answer is "yes." Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) ★★★★★ Once more, you could decide that a venture might not be a good idea. You put it on hold. Toss out the unnecessary in your life. Tonight: Relax within the moment. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) ★★★★★ Pressure with a situation will take your interest as well as some self-discipline to handle. Don't toss yourself into this mix until you have

decided if this activity or choice is worth your effort. Tonight: Hanging out is fun. Sagittarius (Nov. 22Dec. 21) ★★★★ You could be more direct and forthright than you have been in a while. Look at a tendency to be self-indulgent and touchy. Tonight: Out and about. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) ★★★★★ You smile and draw in many more people. Your ability to understand problems helps, though your actions could be very unexpected to many. Tonight: Your treat. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) ★★★ Know when to do less. You actually might spend more time quietly on what you want. You might need some downtime to evaluate what is happening. Tonight: As you like it. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) ★★★★★ Act quickly with a project. Also, clear out any misunderstandings right now. You might be surprised at how easy it could be to patch up a problem. Tonight: Take some personal time. — The astrological forecast should be read for entertainment only.

Dear Annie: You have printed a few letters about teaching children manners, and one writer suggested a game called “Pass the Piggy.” When I was 4 years old and first learning to use utensils, I dropped something off my fork. My father leaned over and said, “Am I going to have to get you a pig trough?” The next night he watched me intently, and when something fell from my trembling

Dear Annie: My husband and I are in our early 60s and have been married for eight years. “Troy” has a temper. One minute he will be sweet as pie, telling me he loves me, even singing love songs. The next minute he will fly into a rage and say every nasty thing possible, screaming at me and saying he wants a divorce and that I’m the worst wife ever. When I tell him he’s a bully and a little nuts, he gets angry. Later, he usually apologizes and tells me he doesn’t know what got into him and he can’t live without me. Other times, he apologizes but says I am at fault for being so annoying. In other ways, Troy is a good husband. We have a beautiful home, and he is very generous, so I try to ignore most of these tantrums. He is already taking antidepressant and blood pressure medications. Could he be bipolar? Schizophrenic? I’ve asked him to return to his specialist, but he won’t. — Would Like an Answer

INSTRUCTIONS: 1. Measure the size of felt needed to cover the corkboard and cut it out. 2. Staple the felt onto the corkboard. 3. Cut ribbons to fit along each edge of the felt. You will glue it on to cover up the staples. For me, it worked best to spread a little section of glue and then press the ribbon down. If you don’t have a glue gun, fabric glue or regular glue may work, too. 4. Cut shapes from other pieces of felt. The number, size and shapes are up to you. One friend recommended I cut out animals, but I can’t draw well, so I stuck with a variety of shapes. My tester requested some small pieces for eyes and noses, and also Ariel’s hair. That’s all there is to it. More shapes can be added or altered as needed, and it provides young kids plenty of opportunity to use their imagination. — Copy editor Katie Kritikos can be reached at kkritikos@ljworld.com.

SLICE of Life

A FLEXIBLE SPIRIT { Yoga coach works in health, education

“I

knew from an early age that I wanted to be a teacher and perhaps be in the health field helping people,” says Sidney Sutton, registered yoga teacher, mentor, retreat leader and lifelong learner. “I loved to learn then and still do now.” Sutton spent her childhood years in Kansas City and Lake Lotawana, Mo. She enjoyed swimming, sailing, spending time with both sets of Kansas grandparents and serving in her local church. She completed two years of nursing at the University of Wyoming before returning to Kansas City to graduate as an X-ray technologist from Research Hospital and from Avila University with a bachelor’s degree in radiographic technology. Sutton worked at Shawnee Mission Medical Center before moving to Chicago with her husband, Tod, then worked at the University of Illinois Health Center. While taking her two sons to preschool, she saw a poster with the words: “For those who love, stingy time gives 10,000 summers.” Sutton determined to make the most of her life by committing to explore and learn new things, being as loving and open as she could be, building community and staying healthy. An unexpected opportunity opened up when a friend invited her to a (Chicago) yoga class. “I fell in love with yoga. It was perfect for me,” Sutton says. “I couldn’t believe how well I felt after a class. I had fun trying new asanas (poses) and wanted to learn more about yoga’s philosophy as well as the physical aspects.” She took classes at the local community college, attended workshops around the United States, Mexico and Costa Rica, and learned different types of yoga, including hatha and Iyengar. “Yoga has been wonderful for me,” Sutton says. “My coordination and flexibility has improved. I couldn’t touch my toes in grade school. Yoga’s helped keep me strong physically and mentally. It’s also made me more mindful of living in the moment and helped me grow spiritually.” She moved to Lawrence in 1999, continued to study and practice yoga, and participated in meditation and Bible study groups. She and Tod mentored students in a church program, Education for Ministry, for nine years before taking their first break this year. Sutton looked for opportunities to teach yoga. One presented itself when a church member invited her to teach

SIDNEY SUTTON is a registered yoga teacher, mentor and retreat leader. a class when the teacher left. “I decided I’d teach at home,” she says. “I keep the classes small so I can give more personalized attention to the students. My philosophy is to introduce people to yoga in a way that piques their curiosity to learn and have fun. If they enjoy it they will return and learn more about this discipline’s benefits. I teach mostly gentle yoga classes that help with balance, strength, flexibility and concentration.” Sutton has taught golf yoga classes, led retreats, including one for Women’s Spirit Connection in the fall, and has given talks about yoga’s benefits to community groups. “In all of this I’m always a student,” she says. “I’m continuing to learn, and I remain committed to taking care of and nourishing my body, mind and spirit.” — Eileen Roddy can be reached at eileenroddy@sunflower.com.

two have been the primary organizers for the annual conference, working to schedule speakers as well as securing donations and sponsors. For additional support, “we have brought others on board as much as possible in the past,” Ihloff says. Since that first year, the event has grown. “The first conference lasted two days.

ment and therefore make the child grow into a secure, emotionally healthy and adjusted adult.” Basic tenets of attachment therapy include birth bonding, breastfeeding, sleeping close to the baby and being aware that when a baby cries, it is in need. “If for example, a baby is left to ‘cry out’ as many people and care providers recommend, then the child will learn it cannot trust the people he or she knows most intimately …This is a nonsecure attachment,” Ihloff says. Awareness of a child’s developmental needs will also be discussed at the conference. Monika Eichler, co-founder of the Prairie Moon Waldorf School, will talk about the school environment. Although the Waldorf approach to education is comprehensive and multi-faceted, Eichler will explain the philosophy and practice within a Waldorf environment. “Why are we expecting our children to read at 2?” she asks. Eichler, who is also a researcher in mental health at the School of Social Welfare at KU, says that research has not proven that if children begin

reading at an earlier age, they are any more successful, or better readers, than those who learn to read later. Instead, Eichler explains, “Research on success and what brings about happiness is not only related to IQ and socioeconomic status, but also self-control. This foundation begins in preschool.” Early-childhood students also are provided time for unstructured play each day in the classroom for at least an hour. “It’s the most beautiful play to observe,” Eichler says. “Most of the social and intellectual skills one needs to succeed in life and work are first developed through childhood play, and in addition the children are using their imaginative capacity.” The partnership between Prairie Moon Waldorf School and the Lawrence Conscious Parenting Initiative Conference is very much agreeable. Eichler says the two fit together nicely, because the parents of Prairie Moon students and others in the community are “thinking deeply about issues such as health, education, the environment and parenting.”

Fine dressing Do a homemade makeover on your basic condiments BY SARAH HENNING

S

ometimes, a dollop makes the meal. That ketchup, mustard, mayo or fancy-pants aioli is exactly what is needed to make a good sandwich great. And you know what? It’s as easy putting on your lab coat (or apron) as playing mad scientist to get restaurant-style condiments at home. Seriously. All you have to do is open up the fridge, says Simon Bates, co-owner of The Burger Stand at the Casbah, 803 Mass. Bates says that when he’s not tending to the food at The Burger Stand or its sister restaurant, Esquina, 801 Mass., he’s at home creating new sauces and spreads. “We have a lot of stuff laying around, and I just end up mixing it up and experimenting,” Bates says. “Everything from ranch to soy sauce. If you have any mayo, you can add a lot of stuff to that. Ketchup is real easy ... just a little sriracha, blend it in there.” Phil Toevs, cafe chef at WheatFields Bakery and Cafe, 904 Vt., says that method is probably in use in every restaurant in America worth its salt. “When people see a fancy condiment that they really like on a menu somewhere, chances are that’s what they’re doing (playing with flavors),” Toevs says. “If you see something fancy like raspberry kiwi mayonnaise on your fruit crepe, chances are they pureed raspberries and kiwi and stirred it into mayonnaise. It’s really that easy.” As for where to start, Bates has a few additions he loves to make to ketchup and mustard on a regular basis.

THE CHERRY PEPPER KETCHUP at The Burger Stand, 803 Mass., is one of the restaurant’s many signature condiments.

A KETCHUP MIX is whisked at The Burger Stand at the Casbah, 803 Mass. Ketchup: ● Soy sauce and rice wine vinegar ● Sherry vinegar ● Lemon juice and zest ● Mayo Mustard: ● Spices like coriander, caraway

Pickle relish ● Sriracha ● Roasted garlic

Bates suggests starting with a small amount and working your way up, testing

it until you get the flavor just where you want it. Toevs says not to be afraid to push yourself — there’s no wrong way to make a condiment. Just start out with flavors you know you like and work from there. “Sky’s the limit for the amount of flavors you can put together,” Toevs says. “You’re never really going to break a condiment.” And, Bates adds, chances are that your artistry in the kitchen will pay off with a new favorite flavor combination. He points to one of his favorite off-the-cuff combos — The Burger Stand’s chipotle-cocoa ketchup — which was just a whim and a mix of likable flavors. “That’s just chipotle peppers pureed up with unsweetened cocoa and honey and our house blend ketchup,” he says of the popular sauce, which is standard on the restaurant’s smoke burger. “I’m pretty proud of that.” — Staff writer Sarah Henning can be reached at 832-7187.

he front of the store looks like any other gas station. Pumps outside, pop in the refrigerator section, chips and candy for purchase, every kind of cigarette under the sun. But tucked back into the back two aisles of Shop N Go 104, 1000 W. 23rd St., is a treasure trove of traditional Indian spices, frozen foods, produce, dry ingredients and drinks. It’s a place that owner Rahim Lirani says has become a regular shopping stop for Indian students and Lawrence residents. “That store has a small part of India in it,” says Ranu Pal, Lawrence resident from the Bengal region of India. Lirani says many students come to the store so they can cook food they’re used to without making the jump to American food immediately. “We get many students here. They don’t have any other options,” he says. “Someone comes from a different country, and they aren’t used to the food.” Familiar items such as large bags of turmeric and coriander can be spotted on the shelves,

Indian grocer — tional community In a town the size of Lawrence, where the next option for Indian ingredients is miles away, Pal says a store like this is necessary. “In a small town you cannot otherwise survive,” she said. She started going to the store for spices in between trips to Kansas City, then started buying the gas there after a while. She was initially surprised by the combination of a typical gas station and market. “It’s really amazing because you can find a combination of these things only in the United States,” she says. “People go there not only for buying gas, but also for the flavors of Indian subcontinent.” Pal says she’s met people at the store through conversations that started over movies or food. “We find so many similarities,” she says. “A conversation starts over movies, then become friends.” Anita Sampat is part of the community that shops at the store, where she goes for food she remembers from growing up. Sampat’s family cooked Indian food regularly, and her hometown, Topeka, didn’t have a place to shop for traditional ingredients. So her family would have to drive to Kansas City.

What’s your favorite Indian dish? Asked at The Merc, 901 Iowa.

“Anything with coconut in it. And I like really spicy curries.” Sampat, a Kansas University graduate and receptionist at International Student and Scholar Services, heard about the gas station that sold Indian food her junior year and has been shopping there ever since for her favorite foods. “I checked it out and continued to go there,” Sampat says. “I picked up some stuff from home.” On a recent shopping trip, she picked up some spices and chile peppers that can’t be found easily in American markets, as well as paneer, an Indian cheese. She often buys her spices at the store because the quantities are larger. “I also trust the brand a little more,” she says. For when she’s really low on time, she’ll buy a prepackaged meal, and while she says they’re not as good as home cooking, they can do in a crunch. “They’re a good alternative if you don’t have time,” she says. — Reporter Brenna Hawley can be reached at 832-7217.

THREE MOVES

Rethink your value combo BY SARAH HENNING

I

t’s an excuse that’s probably been uttered a thousand times over in Lawrence alone: “I don’t have time to work out.” Nathan Wellendorf has a solution for even the most time-crunched of you: combination moves. Combination moves are ones that work more than one body part in one exercise. Basically, they’re the exercise equivalent of multi-tasking. “I would say 95 percent of the moves I do are combos,” says Wellendorf, a personal trainer with Lawrence Athletic Club, 3201 Mesa Way. “Basically, with the three exercises that I just showed you today, you could do maybe three or four sets of a high number of reps, maybe 12 to 15 of each, and you could hit your full body pretty easily.” The three moves Wellendorf outlines in this workout hit your upper body, core and lower body. He says they are typical of the workout a client would get with him — he tries to make his exercises as multifunctional and efficient as possible so the folks he trains get more bang for their buck. That theory also goes for the multi-use items used to do the workout. Wellendorf suggests buying a four-pack of furniture sliders to do these exercises, and then use them for their intended purpose down the road. He also says that while he uses a med-

Or a bag of flour. I know a lot of people have sand bags out in their garage,” he says. “Anything like that will work.” Wellendorf says he was into fitness young and ended up as a sprinter at Fort Hays State. He was injured two years in and decided to move to Lawrence and finish his degree at Washburn University in Topeka. He has his certification through the National Strength and Conditioning Association and says he loves his job because it allows him to bring fitness to people of all ages and levels. “It gives me a huge variety of people. I train athletes, I train special populations, I train senior citizens, rehab, all that sort of stuff,” he says. — Staff writer Sarah Henning can be reached at 832-7187.

‘Meant to be’ a tough standard to set in any relationship Dear Dr. Ben and Wes: I’ve been dating a girl for a year and a half. This week we learned for sure that we’re going to separate colleges in the fall. We knew this was going to happen and just ignored it, but now it’s bringing back other past breakups we’ve each had, and it makes me feel like I don’t want to get involved with anyone like this again. It just ends in huge disappointment. Do you have any advice? Ben: I suppose my job is to play up the practical side of things, and frankly, these kinds of stories often end badly. Logistically, I should probably tell you to break things off. I can’t bring myself to do that, though. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve read the end of “Romeo and Juliet.” Love is hard; what’s more, it’s scary, and we’re bad at it. Nobody wants to invest in a tragedy, so I think many of us keep love on the shelf. When we do give love a try, we often find ourselves either blind to obstacles or skittish to them. Neither characteristic befits love. Your dilemma here is not a logistical one; it’s about commitment. This obstacle is not an inherently bad thing; some of the strongest relationships I know have gone through longdistance situations, but it’s hard. There is no such thing as a casual long-distance relationship, so you want to discuss this with each other and those close to you before you decide whether you two really want to go through this. Feeling that you two are meant to be together doesn’t guarantee a happy

Double Take

BEN MARKLEY AND WES CRENSHAW ending, but it’s got to count for something. Wes: OK, I’ll be the practical one, even as I’d rather just go along with Ben and support the romantic ideal. Feeling “meant to be together” does count for something. This relationship has obviously been a key part in your high school years, and for that reason you’ll carry it in your heart for the rest of your life. It will always define a big part of who you were in your late teens, informing your future relationships and providing a unique and special memory to look back on with joy. If you ask me, that’s a big load for one relationship, so your job for now is to let it be enough. You could make this commitment and hang in there as Ben suggests, but in doing so you’ll experience a high rate of “opportunity cost” in terms of other relationships and experiences.

No matter what, do not stop reaching out and giving love a chance, and don’t let the inevitability of the end in this relationship keep you from living it out to its fullest while you can. And let me save you a little suspense by promising that you will go through this again. Probably several times. That’s what it takes to find the right partner, an ongoing search and a fair amount of trial, error and heartbreak. If it were easy, more people would get it right the first time. Who knows? If you two really are “meant to be together” (and that’s a challenging topic for another column), then you can each afford to go your separate ways and then check back in later, when you’ve accumulated more time living. Sometimes things do come full circle, but I’d suggest you not try to force that too soon, lest you confine each other to a commitment that could quickly become more like a cage than a partnership. Next week: My parents think we spend “too much time” together. — Dr. Wes Crenshaw is a boardcertified family psychologist and director of the Family Therapy Institute Midwest.

SITE FOR TALL SHOPPERS

“Wood or cork heel shoes are the perfect complement to this season’s throwback, ’70sinspired clothing trend.” CAITLIN DONNELLY

At last, there’s a shopping site for tall women who aren’t runway thin. Long Tall Sally, a London-based online retailer, specializes in clothing for women over the height of 5foot-8. Clothing ranges from a size 4 to a size 20. There are jeans up to a 38-inch inseam and shoes up to a size 13 available at www.longtallsally.com. — MCT

WOODEN: Wood or cork heel shoes are the perfect complement to this season’s throwback, ’70s-inspired clothing trend. Their neutraltoned bases provide optimal versatility, and their chunky, retro stems ensure comfort and sturdy walkability. Although these shoes are easy to find in shades of tan and brown, feel free to venture out and pick up a pair with a healthy dose of color in its upper. Try a punchy apricot or bold turquoise, or for a dressed-up neutral, opt for a metallic gold hue. PLATFORM PUMPS: Opposite your chunkier, retro wooden platforms, pick out a sleek, sexy platform pump. These shoes are dressy, urban alternatives, and they will look perfect with jeans or fitted dresses and miniskirts. Unlike your old high heels — shoes with an even base — the additional weight near

was one of the many days our kids had off from school this semester (they are all running together at this point, and I can’t be certain which one it was), and I was in the kitchen making lunch (of this I actually am certain). As I assembled my training table-bound plate of grilled cheese sandwiches, Luke and Caroline came slinking into the kitchen and bellied up to the island with palpable trepidation. Clearly something was on their little minds. I looked at them, wondering what they had broken while out of my sight for the past two hours. Had they spilled milk on the Wii? No … they don’t drink much milk. Was it a window? No … I hadn’t heard much noise. The more I looked at them, the more I got the sense it wasn’t they, but I, who was under suspicion. Was this an intervention? Had all my time Facebooking and eating Girl Scout Cookies caught up with me? Or was it about my behavior? Were they going to talk to me about my singing in the car? Again? Caroline was the first to speak. “Mom,” she began slowly with a fearful smile upon her bright face, “we were watching ‘Dora’… ” Maybe this wasn’t an intervention. Maybe they were finally going to beg to use the office dust collector formerly known as Rosetta Stone that my husband bought a few years ago with visions of making our home a bilingual one — trilingual if you count my advanced studies in igPay atinLay — and, therefore, smarter than yours. “… and a commercial came on,” she continued, “for a lotion…” So this wasn’t a plea for higher learning.

They would — if allowed — live on Sunny D, Easy-Mac and Doritos, which they now believe have the power to resurrect our dead hermit crabs. Not that I could blame them. I recall spending my own childhood beaming with pride that my mom was choosy enough to choose Jif, thankful Burger King would withhold both the pickles and the lettuce and wanting nothing more than to be a Pepper, too. I could only imagine the promise this lotion held as Caroline took a breath and revealed its superpower: “… that gets rid of stretch marks.” I looked up from the stove at my personal grand finale, one of four people on earth who would not receive a beating from me for such a suggestion, and smiled. “Why do you think I would need that?” I asked, staring down the former 9-pound newborn. Her brother, formerly 9 1/2 pounds and the main source of my seersucker abs, came to her rescue with all the charm of the late Billy Mays. “And if you call in the next five hours,” he said with the seriousness of a heart attack, “you can try it for free.”

Organize your basement

S

tart your spring cleaning early by cleaning and organizing your basement. Step 1: Identify and categorize different sections of your basement. Storage areas should be loosely themed — holiday decor, outdoor equipment, paint supplies, etc. Keeping like items in one area makes things easier to find and increases the likelihood they will be returned to the right spot later. Step 2: Think about how often items will be accessed when choosing where to put them. Old files and keepsakes can be stored higher and behind more frequently accessed items. Seasonal items should be relatively accessible, and items that are used often should be at the top of the pile, so to speak. Step 3: Decide where the bulk of the items will be stored and then clear that area out completely. Step 4: Dust, sweep and vacuum the empty storage area. Use warm water mixed with TSP to thoroughly clean the walls and floor. Use caulk, hydraulic cement or spray foam insulation to fill any cracks or crevices along the wall, window frames and floors. Step 5: Once the area is clean, dry and accessible, install shelving to hold the items. Use old pallets to keep everything off the floor. Maximize space by installing hooks to hang things from the ceiling. Do

not hang things from plumbing pipes or near electrical wires. Step 6: Sort and eliminate as much of the basement fodder as possible. If it hasn’t been used in the past three years, get rid of it. Chances are good no one will ever notice it is gone. Donate items. Use classified advertising to sell or give away larger things. Recycle as much as possible. Take old paint and chemicals to the hazardous waste facility. Step 7: Control damage from moisture and infestations by replacing cardboard boxes with plastic storage containers. Label containers clearly, listing their contents before storing them away. Place plastic beneath anything left on the floor to protect it from seepage. Leave space between your items and the wall to allow for proper air circulation and to limit the dark, damp hiding spots basements are notorious for. Step 8: Once you have one corner of the basement cleaned and organized, move onto another section. Clear it, clean it and then arrange and stack everything into place. Keep working in small sections throughout the basement until every inch is clean, dry and organized. — Linda Cottin can be reached at go@ljworld.com.
