Senators say no to abolishing Arts Commission Gov. could still line-item veto funding; Lawrence students demonstrate against cuts By Scott Rothschild

TOPEKA — A Senate committee on Thursday rejected Gov. Sam Brownback’s attempt to abolish the Kansas Arts Commission.


Rain chance

High: 50

The Federal and State Affairs Committee voted against Brownback’s order before a packed hearing room that included about 20 high school students from Lawrence. Keil Eggers, a senior at Free

State High School, said he made the trip to the Capitol because he wanted the Arts Commission funded so that “kids behind me would have the same opportunities” in arts programs that he had.

Jonas Upman, a senior at Lawrence High School, said the students spontaneously decided to come to Topeka to show their support of the Arts Commission. “Everyone should have an

equal opportunity to pursue becoming an artist,” he said. The students, who arranged with their teachers to make the trip, briefly demonstrated and Please see ARTS, page 2A

PEDESTRIANS ENJOY THE SPRINGLIKE WEATHER Thursday in downtown Lawrence. According to 2010 census figures released Thursday, Lawrence’s population grew 9.4 percent for the decade, to a total of 87,643 people. The total population for Douglas County was 110,826 in 2010.

Census: Douglas County grew in past 10 years, though slowly By Chad Lawhorn

ONLINE: See interactive population maps for the county and the nation at

Douglas County still grew in the difficult decade of the 2000s, but it did so at its slowest rate since the days of the Great Depression, according to the official Census population totals released on Thursday. Douglas County’s 2010 population stood at 110,826 people, a gain of 10,864 people since 2000. That’s a growth rate of 10.9 percent. Lawrence’s population grew slightly slower to a total of 87,643 people, an increase of 7,545 people. That’s a growth rate of 9.4 percent for the decade.

Douglas County was one of only 28 counties in the state that saw a population increase, but its rate of growth — which averaged out at about 1 percent a year — was about half as fast as the community grew in the 1980s and 1990s. Local leaders on Thursday largely were choosing to focus on the fact that the county had kept growing even during a serious economic downturn. “I’m very comfortable with a 1 percent growth rate,” said Douglas County Administrator Craig Weinaug. “It is not only something I can live with, but be very happy with.”

‘Growing the best’ Community leaders largely were expecting growth numbers to slow

from past levels. Single-family home construction in Lawrence has fallen from more than 300 homes a year to less than 100 in several of the past years. But the size of the slowdown did create some surprise. The city’s Planning Department makes annual estimates about the city’s population. Its most recent estimate pegged the city’s population at 91,464 people — or about 3,800 more people than the Census Bureau counts for the city. City planners estimated that the city topped the 87,000 mark in 2005. Please see CENSUS, page 2A ● State Hispanic population surges 59%. Page 5A

Douglas County could face redistricting By Scott Rothschild

TOPEKA — Just as it was 10 years ago, Douglas County could be in the middle of redistricting battles again, officials indicated Thursday after new census figures were released. The Census Bureau report showed Kansas’ population increased 6.1 percent from 2000 to 2010, but more importantly it showed much of that growth occurred in northeast Kansas. The report shows that the 3rd Congressional District, which includes eastern Douglas County, has the largest population with 767,569 people. That is 112,000 more than the 1st Congressional District, 57,000 more than the 2nd, which includes western Douglas County, and 47,000 more than the Wichitabased 4th. To be equal in population, as the law requires, the congressional districts will have to have roughly 713,000 people each. That means the 3rd, which also includes Johnson and Wyandotte counties, must

shed the most population. Could the Douglas County portion of the 3rd be rejoined with the portion in the 2nd, like it was before 2002? Rep. Paul Davis, Jenkins D-Lawrence, said that’s a possibility. “I’ve always operated under the assumption that Douglas County would go into the 2nd District because you would want to keep the Kansas City metro area together,” Davis said. But Davis said that because Douglas County has been voting Democratic, Republican U.S. Reps. Kevin Yoder in the 3rd and Lynn Jenkins in the 2nd may not want the whole county in their districts. And Davis said that while many opposed splitting Douglas County in the last redistricting battle, “the split has not served us as badly as people had thought it might.” He said having two congressional representatives has worked to Douglas County’s advantages in

some ways. On the legislative side, it is too early to tell how the population shifts will affect Douglas County’s Statehouse delegation. Johnson CounYoder ty could see an increase of up to five state House districts, having grown by 93,093 people. Johnson County essentially added a Douglas County to its population over the past 10 years. Douglas County grew by 10.9 percent, from 99,962 to 110,826. The Legislature’s redistricting committee will meet later during the current legislative session and set a schedule for public hearings during the summer to consider congressional and legislative boundaries. The Legislature will then draw new maps during the 2012 legislative session. — Statehouse reporter Scott Rothschild can be reached at 785-423-0668.

The Lawrence-Douglas County Health Department reported Thursday that there have been seven cases of whooping cough in Lawrence day cares during the past month. The cases involved two adults and five children in three day cares. Names of the facilities were not released because of federal health privacy regulations. Pertussis, commonly called whooping cough, is a contagious, bacterial respiratory disease spread by coughing or sneezing. In young children, the illness can be complicated by pneumonia and occasionally brain inflammation. In rare cases — one out of 200 — whooping cough can cause death, especially in children under 1. Jonathan Larance, Kansas Department of Health and Environment spokesman, said there are no community outbreaks in Kansas. So far this year, there have been 27 cases statewide. Last year, there were 180 cases, down 28 percent from 251 in 2009. Vaccination is the best protection against the disease. Six of the seven Lawrence cases involved unvaccinated children and adults, who were not staff members. “Unfortunately, these people who don’t get vaccinated put a lot of other folks at risk,” said Lisa Horn, spokeswoman for the local health department. State child care regulations require up-to-date immunizations with a couple of exceptions: religious beliefs or a doctor’s signature that it would endanger the child’s life. If an outbreak occurs, unimmunized children are sent home; the length of time children are excluded from day care is based on the disease. In the whooping cough cases, it was 21 days from their last contact with an infected person. The symptoms of pertussis begin much like a common cold: ● Runny nose or congestion ● Sneezing ● Occasionally a mild cough or fever ● Infants and children with the disease may cough violently and rapidly, over and over, until the air is gone from their lungs and they’re forced to inhale with a loud “whooping” sound. If you or your child are experiencing pertussis symptoms, contact your doctor or the health department at 843-0721 and ask for a communicable disease nurse. — Health reporter Karrey Britt can be reached at 832-7190.

The Census Bureau also previously had released population estimates showing the city above 90,000 people. But those figures were based on estimates and formulas. The Census numbers are based on an actual count. City Manager David Corliss said it was important for the city to get a handle on how many people lived in the community and its growth rate. “The numbers are very important as we look at our infrastructure needs, as we look at the need for a new wastewater plant, and as we look at transportation planning,” Corliss said. The numbers also play a role in how much federal funding is allocated to the city. Corliss said the city will review the Census data in more detail to determine if planners agree with the Census’ numbers. “It could very well cause us to change some thinking, but we’re going to have to look and see what it all means,” Corliss said. “We do believe growth is important, but it is not a race where the fastest growing wins some sort of prize. It is who is growing the best.”

‘Ups and downs’ The big question for leaders likely will be whether the community ever will return to the days of 2 percent growth per year or whether this slower growth is the new reality for the long term. Thursday, they weren’t sure. “When you really stop and consider the amount of growth we had before in the past few decades, it was truly substantial,” said Mayor Mike Amyx. “The thing that happens is everybody sees ups and downs and goes through cycles. I think that is what we have seen here. On the positive side, we’re still seeing an increase. That is really important.” Other facts and figures from the Census: ● Douglas County’s growth rate was well above the statewide growth rate of 6.1

Population totals for the 2010 Census for area cities and their rate of growth since 2000: ● Baldwin City: 4,515 people, up from 3,400 people (32.7 percent) ● Basehor: 4,613, up from 2,238 (106 percent) ● De Soto: 5,720, up from 4,561 (25.4 percent) ● Eudora: 6,136, up from 4,307 (42.4 percent) ● Lecompton: 625, up from 608 (2.7 percent) ● McLouth: 880, up from 868 (1.3 percent) ● Ottawa: 12,649, up from 11,921 (6.1 percent) ● Perry: 929, up from 901 (3.1 percent) ● Tonganoxie: 4,996, up from 2,728 (83.1 percent) percent for the decade. Kansas has 2,853,118 people. ● Lawrence continues to be the sixth largest city in the state. The other nine largest cities in the state and their growth rates are: Wichita, 382,368 (11.1 percent); Overland Park, 173,372 (16.3 percent); Kansas City, 145,786 (down 0.7 percent); Topeka, 127,473 (4.2 percent); Olathe, 125,872 (35.4 percent); Shawnee, 62,209 (29.6 percent); Manhattan, 52,281 (16.6 percent); Lenexa, 48,190 (19.8 percent); and Salina, 47,707 (4.4 percent). ● Douglas County continues to be the fifth largest county in the state. Johnson County overtook Sedgwick County to become the largest county in the state. ● Douglas County’s growth rates by the decades have been: 1890s, 4.7 percent; 1900s, decline of 1.4 percent; 1910s, decline of 2.9 percent; 1920s, 4.7 percent; 1930s, 0.1 percent; 1940s, 35.4 percent; 1950s, 28.2 percent; 1960s, 32.5 percent; 1970s, 16.7 percent; 1980s, 20.9 percent; 1990s, 22.2 percent; 2000s, 10.9 percent. ● Of the 20 largest cities in the state, Lawrence’s growth rate was the 10th highest. Five of the 20 largest cities saw declines in population — Kansas City, Leavenworth, Garden City, Emporia and Prairie Village. — City reporter Chad Lawhorn can be reached at 832-6362. Follow him at

carried signs outside the Statehouse before the meeting. Brownback issued an executive reorganization order that would abolish the Arts Commission, transition some of its duties to the Kansas State Historical Society, and have a nonprofit foundation raise money for the arts. Brownback has said the move is needed to save state funds in the face of a nearly $500 million revenue shortfall in the fiscal year that starts July 1. The Arts Commission receives about $800,000 per year. Brownback has said he believes the nonprofit foundation will be able to raise more money through priLEGISLATURE vate donations. Several people whom Brownback appointed to the foundation agreed with the governor. Robert Swain, an artist from Topeka, said that when the Topeka City Council decided several years ago to stop funding the Arts Council of Topeka, private groups, such as ARTSConnect, stepped in and now Topeka is experiencing an arts renaissance that is getting nationwide buzz. But moments after his testimony, Kathy Smith, executive director of ARTSConnect, testified that it received a portion of its funding from the Kansas Arts Commission. “Without the support of the Kansas Arts Commission, our work over the past few years would not have been possible,” she said. Other opponents of disbanding the state Arts Commission said the move would jeopardize more than $1 million in matching funds from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Mid America Arts Alliance. State Sen. David Haley, DKansas City, said the Arts Commission had proved itself to be able to attract federal dollars to use statewide in arts projects. Brownback’s idea, he said, was unproved. But Sen. Ralph Ostmeyer, R-Grinnell, said that while he supported the arts, the state was looking at a substantial budget shortfall. Ostmeyer also said he feared that if the Legislature rejected Brownback’s proposal, Brownback would simply line-item veto funding for the Arts Commission in the budget bill. When asked if Brownback would do that, Brownback’s policy director, Landon Fulmer, said he didn’t want to comment. In outlining the governor’s case, Fulmer told the committee that the Arts Commission’s administrative expenses were too high. “Right now, the Arts Commission’s total funding is about 38 percent overhead,” he said. “This isn’t good.” But Henry Schwaller, chairman of the Kansas Arts Commission, said much of that overhead expense was for professional development and consulting to help other arts organizations. Brownback’s order will take effect July 1 unless the Legislature rejects it. The committee’s recommendation to keep the Arts Commission will next go to the full Senate. After the hearing, the Lawrence students said they were pleased with the decision by the committee. “Art is an essential part of life,” said Hazlett Henderson, a sophomore at Lawrence High School. “I don’t know if private funding will be there.” Kelly Song, also a sophomore at Lawrence High, said she was concerned about whether the foundation could raise the amount of funds that the Arts Commission does.

Judge orders protesters out of Capitol A Wisconsin judge ordered the removal Thursday night of pro-union protesters who have camped out in the state Capitol for more than two weeks, but he also ruled that the state had violated the public’s free speech and assembly rights by restricting its access to the building. Dane County Circuit Judge John Albert directed authorities to immediately take actions to remove demonstrators who stayed in the Capitol after its normal 6 p.m. closing time. He also ordered the removal of unauthorized materials, such as sleeping bags, air mattresses and the hundreds — perhaps even thousands — of signs that protesters have taped to the Capitol’s walls. Some protesters voluntarily complied with the order to leave. Others did not immediately do so.

O’Neal wants amendment for school funding ————

House speaker says Legislature should have total control over education financing By Scott Rothschild

T O P E K A — House Speaker Mike O’Neal, R-Hutchinson, on Thursday urged passage of a constitutional amendment that he said would put the Legislature in charge of how much state funding schools get. “The thing we need to get away from is this continuous cycle of litigation,”

O’Neal told the House Education Committee. He said the adequacy of funding for schools is something the Legislature should be in charge of because it has to weigh various needs against the availability of funds. He said the Kansas Supreme Court in its 2005 school finance decision stepped over the line by requiring that the Legislature increase school fund-

ing. The Legislature increased school funding but has recently been cutting back, which has prompted another lawsuit. But Rep. Jim Ward of Wichita, the ranking Democrat on the committee, said the court simply told the Legislature to fund schools at the level that the Legislature’s own studies said was Please see AMENDMENT, page 5A O’Neal

Union bill speeds toward passage With barely a whimper of the protests that have convulsed Wisconsin, legislation to curb public employee unions is speeding toward passage in Ohio, an even bigger labor stronghold. Labor experts said the greater tumult in Wisconsin reflects the state’s long history of progressive political activism; the Statehouse’s location in Madison, the famously liberal home of the University of Wisconsin; and perhaps a feeling of hopelessness among Ohio’s working class, which has been hit particularly hard by the recession. Days of protests in Columbus haven’t added up to the numbers seen in a single day in Madison. The rallies there have topped more than 70,000 people, compared with roughly 8,500 on the largest day of demonstrations at the Ohio Statehouse. Ohio’s bill would restrict the bargaining rights of roughly 350,000 teachers, firefighters, police officers and other public employees. They would no longer be able to negotiate health care benefits or certain working conditions, and they would be barred from striking.

Restaurateur wants to help spur downtown retail growth


Douglas County District Judge Paula Martin on Thursday sentenced a former Kansas University football player to 60 days in jail and three years on probation for a May 2010 burglary incident in which four KU students were held at gunpoint. Martin told Vernon Brooks, who has no prior criminal history, that if he fails to fulfill terms of his probation he could spend nearly four years in prison. “This is your chance to show Brooks that you can do this, but if you don’t, you’ll have more significant time to serve than was recommended by the prosecution,” Martin said. Brooks, 23 and from Missouri City, Texas, in January pleaded no contest to aggravated burglary and aggravated assault charges in connection with the May 14 incident at Tuckaway Apartments, 2600 W. Sixth St. The four students testified in October that two men wearing black ski masks at 1:30 a.m. entered the apartment armed with handguns and forced them to the ground. Co-defendant Jamal Greene, another former KU football player, pleaded guilty in February to the same charges. Prosecutors and police said Greene and Brooks came into the apartment because they thought they could steal drugs and money from a back bedroom. Brooks had already been dismissed from the team before the incident, and Greene was kicked off the team later that day. Defense attorney Charles Whitman said Brooks was remorseful for his actions and was dealing with the realization that he couldn’t pursue a football career. He said he had lost a major support system and fell into behaviors like drug use. But Whitman argued that a strict probation term, including Please see BURGLARY, page 5A

Study: Teens, young adults ‘do it’ less Fewer teens and young adults are having sex, a government survey shows, and theories abound for why they’re doing it less. Experts say this generation may be more cautious than their predecessors, more aware of sexually spread diseases. Or perhaps emphasis on abstinence in the past decade has had some influence. Or maybe they’re just too busy. “It’s not even on my radar,” said 17-year-old Abbey King of Hinsdale, Ill., a competitive swimmer who starts her day at 5 a.m. and falls into bed at 10:30 p.m. after swimming, school, weight lifting, running, more swimming, homework and a volunteer gig working with service dogs for the disabled. The study, released Thursday, is based on interviews of about 5,300 young people, ages 15 to 24. It shows the proportion in that age group who said they’d never had oral, vaginal or anal sex rose in the past decade from 22 percent to about 28 percent.

House to consider repealing tax hike By Scott Rothschild

TOPEKA — The House tax committee on Thursday advanced a bill to repeal the 1-cent state sales increase that was approved in the 2010 legislative session. Conservative Republicans have made the repeal one of their top priorities even though Gov. Sam Brownback, a Republican, has spoken against the proposal. Supporters of the repeal say the tax increase has hurt economic growth and been a burden to taxpayers. Opponents of repeal say it

would reduce state revenues by about $390 million, which would require drasLEGISLATURE tic budget cuts. The state is already facing a projected $500 million revenue shortfall in the fiscal year that starts July 1. The measure, House Bill 2091, next goes to the full House for consideration. During the 2010 session, legislators approved increasing the state sales tax from 5.3 cents per dollar to 6.3 cents

per dollar. The increase went into effect July 1. The rate is scheduled to decrease to 5.7 cents per dollar in 2013. The Kansas Chamber of Commerce was one of the major opponents of the increase last year and worked to defeat candidates who supported the increase. But this year, the chamber has testif ied against the repeal bill, saying the tax increase should be made permanent and use the revenue to offset elimination of the state corporate income tax.

KDOT will continue working with the county, city and Lawrence-Douglas County Metropolitan Planning Organization in developing the plan. The plan must be adopted and funding must be found before any construction would take place. There is currently no timeline for that process, but KDOT spokeswoman Kim Qualls said some short-term projects may be able to move ahead more quickly. — Reporter Joe Preiner can be reached at 832-6314.

• A 19-year-old Topeka man who was the driver in connection with an October shooting outside a Lawrence apartment was sentenced to serve three years on probation Thursday. Desmond J. Jackson had pleaded no contest in January to two counts of conspiracy to commit aggravated robbery. Prosecutors had accused Jackson of participating in a scheme with Christopher Bush and two Topeka women to rob two Lawrence men on Oct. 11. One of the Lawrence men was shot in the 2500 block of Redbud Lane. Jackson was accused of driving Bush, who was sentenced to serve five years in prison for the shooting, away from the scene. • A 77-year-old Lawrence man reported to Lawrence police Tuesday that someone had stolen $1,600 worth of miscellaneous tools and other items from his vehicle between 5 p.m. Monday and 7:30 a.m. Tuesday in the 900 block of Summerfield Place.

• Overheated equipment inside the Dairy Queen in Eudora caused a fire early Thursday morning, and the business sustained interior damage, Eudora Police Chief Grady Walker said. Walker said the accidental blaze started when a cone-dipping machine apparently overheated.

Hispanic population surges 59% By Roxana Hegeman and John Hanna Associated Press Writers

WICHITA — Kansas saw its Hispanic population surge over the past decade, according to census figures released Thursday, but advocates warned it will lose many of those new residents should the Legislature approve a tough illegal immigration crackdown they say has driven many legal U.S. citizens out of other states. The local figures released by the U.S. Census Bureau show the number of Hispanics in Kansas surged by 59 percent since 2000 and now represents more than one in every 10 residents. Sharon Spauth, a Hispanic resident of Wichita who moved with her family in 1970 from Colorado, said part of the reason Kansas has experienced so much growth is the economic downturn in other states. That has driven new immigrant workers to meatpacking plants in western


necessary. “What happened is the schools kept saying you (the Legislature) aren’t funding us enough to do what you are telling us to do,” Ward said. Currently, the Kansas Constitution says: “The Legislature shall make suitable provision for finance of the educational interests of the state.” O’Neal’s proposed constitutional amendment would change that to say: “The Legislature shall provide for the equitable distribution of public school funds in a manner and amount as may be


an alcohol- and drug-treatment program, would “provide services of safety to the community.” “A program of probation would be more effective than prison in reducing the risk of offender recidivism,” Whitman said. Brooks apologized to the victims, who were not at the hearing. “Not only have I embarrassed the University of Kansas, but I also embarrassed myself at the same time,” he said. “I am doing everything I can to rebuild my name.” But Michael Allen, an assistant district attorney, said it was a serious crime. He said the two female students didn’t know if they were going to be killed or sexually assaulted before the suspects left. “(Being held at gunpoint) is something that those four individuals who were not doing anything wrong are going to have to live with for the rest of their lives,” Allen said. Martin said several people had vouched for Brooks’ character and that he would benefit from an intensive probation and treatment program. “Even under these egregious circumstances, the Legislature has provided for a goal of serving community interests,” Martin said. “And the Legislature has said that if there is a way to reduce offender recidivism and promote your reformation, community safety interests hereby will be served.” She ordered Brooks, who will not be allowed to leave his home state of Texas, to register as a violent offender for using a firearm and to comply with treatment recommendations from an alcohol and drug evaluation. If he violates his probation, Brooks will have to serve nearly four years in prison.

Kansas, she said. “When other states have a lack of prosperity, we have waves of (Hispanics) who come into Kansas,” said Spauth, who works as a tax preparer. The Kansas House is considering a bill that includes a provision similar to an Arizona law enacted last year that requires law enforcement officers to check the status of people they stop who are suspected of being illegal immigrants. That, Spauth said, would halt the population growth among Latinos. Kansas had an influx of Hispanic residents come into the state when Oklahoma passed a restrictive law against illegal immigrants, and she said three illegal immigrant families at her church moved in December from Arizona. “Whenever you pass antiimmigrant legislation, even though you may have a green card, you are threatening the whole family,” she said. Figures provided to state

officials and obtained by The Associated Press Thursday prior to their public release counted 300,042 Hispanic residents in 2010, representing 10.5 percent of the Kansas population. The 2000 Census found there were 188,252 Hispanic residents, 7 percent of the population. The architects of this year’s bill on illegal immigration, Secretary of State Kris Kobach and state Rep. Lance Kinzer, of Olathe, both Republicans, wouldn’t speculate about whether part of the increase could be due to illegal immigration. “It’s just really dicey to try to draw any conclusions in that regard from the census data itself,” Kinzer said. The state’s total population grew about 6 percent over the decade, to 2.85 million residents, up about 165,000 from the 2000 figure of 2.69 million. But Kansas continued to see a decline in rural areas, with 77 of its 105 counties losing residents since 2000.

determined by the Legislature.” O’Neal said House Concurrent Resolution 5010 would prevent the Kansas Supreme Court from ordering the Legislature to increase school funding. Mark Tallman, a lobbyist for the Kansas Association of School Boards, opposed the measure, saying that under the current constitutional measure, Kansas public schools continue to improve. “This could weaken the constitutional provision that has served Kansas well,” Tallman said. Kathy Cook, executive director of Kansas Families for Education, said, “Removing the requirement for a ‘suitable provision for finance’ effectively takes

away the responsibility of the Legislature to provide adequate funding to meet the needs of students.” O’Neal said disputes about whether school funding was equitable could still be considered by the courts under the proposal. But Education Committee Chairman Clay Aurand, R-Clay Center, wondered how that could be if the Legislature defined what equitable meant. The committee took no immediate action on the proposal. Resolutions to change the constitution require twothirds majorities in the House and Senate before they are placed on the ballot for voters to decide.

Kansas officials lobby Congress to fund lab TOPEKA — Kansas legislative leaders spent time this week knocking on doors in Washington to urge Congress to fund construction of new biosecurity facility in the state. Republican and Democratic leaders made the pitch for the National Bio- and Agro-Defense Facility, which the Department of Homeland Security plans to build near Kansas State University in Manhattan. The Kansas lab would replace an aging facility on Plum Island, N.Y. It would conduct secure research on a variety of deadly plant and animal diseases, including foot-andmouth disease. The Kansas legislative leaders urged Congress to follow President Barack Obama’s recommendation to spend $150 million in the next federal fiscal year for construction. The lab is scheduled to be functioning by 2018 at a total cost of $650 million.

Years after vanishing in Iran, U.S. man proven to be alive W A S H I N G T O N ( AP ) — Four years after a retired FBI agent mysteriously vanished inside Iran, U.S. off icials have received irrefutable proof he is alive, a dramatic development that has sharply intensified diplomatic efforts to bring him home, The Associated Press has learned. The U.S. had lacked reliable information about whether Robert Levinson was alive or dead since he disappeared in March 2007 from the Iranian island of Kish. It remains unclear who exactly is holding Levinson or where he is, but the proof that he is alive is a hopeful sign in a case that had seemingly gone cold. The State Department issued a three-sentence statement by Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton Thursday saying there were indications Levinson was in southwest Asia and asking Iran for help. The AP has learned fuller details after a lengthy investigation into Levinson’s disappearance and the effort to get him back to the U.S. Iran has repeatedly said it has no information about Levinson, but U.S. diplomats and investigators have long said they believed he was taken by Iranian government agents. As years passed, many in the U.S. government believed the 62-year-old with diabetes and high blood pressure might have died. But late last year, Levinson’s family received proof that he was alive. Investigators confirmed its authenticity and that it was recent, current and former officials said. Officials say they believe he is still alive. The AP has known about the proof of life since shortly after it arrived but delayed reporting it because officials said any publicity would jeopardize the ability to get Levinson home.


at City Hall that some issues last a long, long time,” Schumm said.


Hot-button issue If politician Schumm was standing on doorstoops during his terms, he would have gotten a few doors slammed in his face. Maybe even gotten his fingers caught in a couple of them. His last go-around on the City Commission was a bit rough-and-tumble at times. The reason was simple enough, Schumm said: a mall. The community was divided over whether a suburbanstyle mall should be allowed on South Iowa Street. “It probably was the hottest of issues since Quantrill’s raid,” Schumm said. To hear Schumm tell it, everybody took a side. And everybody knew what side Schumm was on. He already had cemented himself as a mall opponent, having fought hard to keep a mall out of downtown. The politics of the situation led to some “nasty accusations,” Schumm said. The most memorable is an accusation that Schumm got stuffed in the bottom of an area outhouse over some shady dealings. Schumm —

candle, and about a halfdozen partially f inished glasses of iced tea, Schumm ticks them off from memory. Mass Street Deli, The New Yorker, Buffalo Bob’s Smokehouse, The Lemon Tree — “I was 10 years too early for frozen yogurt,” he says. “That ended up being missionary work for the frozen yogurt industry” — and Arthur Porters. “I like action, and I can’t think of another business where you have as much action,” Schumm said. Well, maybe politics is a close second. Schumm has served two stints on the Lawrence City Commission — from 1979 to 1981 and then again from 1987 to 1993. Knock, knock, knock, Lawrence voters. Schumm is back. He’s one of five candidates vying for three seats on the City Commission. Why come back nearly 20 years later, you ask? The simplest answer may be because there are still issues he wants to tackle. “I’ve found in my past life

who now brings the topic up unsolicited — said it’s not true. He has a stamped passport showing that he was in Spain at the time of the alleged incident. Schumm and his wife — a Spanish professor at Baker — are renowned travelers. He’s been to South America 15 times, Europe, Asia, North Africa and others. “I’ve learned as much traveling as any other source of learning I can think of,” Schumm said. “It teaches us how less important we are than we think we are.” Today, the mall memories and the bruises that it caused are a sign that he’s willing to make the decisions that he thinks need to be made, Schumm said. “I’m certain that we made the right decision,” Schumm said. “We have a great downtown. It is much better than it was back then, and it is still growing today.”

Business growth Schumm, 64, remembers that a major issue in downtown Lawrence used to be large numbers of teenagers parking their pickups along Massachusetts Street to drink beer and yell vulgarities. “Now the evening restau-

L AWRENCE J OURNAL -WORLD rant business has grown to the point that it is tough to find a place to park to do anything like that,” Schumm said. “I’m very proud of that.” Schumm has reduced his restaurant holdings down to Buffalo Bob’s and the associated Dynamite Saloon. He said Lawrence’s restaurant market is badly overbuilt, but he said he wouldn’t let that opinion guide any land use decisions that he would make as a commissioner. In other words, he said he won’t vote against future restaurant development just because he thinks the town already has enough restaurants. But he does want the city to look at ways it can help encourage more retail business in downtown. He said a retail incubator that could offer smaller spaces for retailers to get started could help downtown increase its number of shops. He also wants city leaders to be open to adding more liv-

ing units to the downtown area. “I’m convinced that will create opportunities for new types of retail in downtown,” Schumm said. Schumm also said he wants the city’s economic development strategy to become focused on making all of Lawrence more attractive for start-up companies or for small firms that want to relocate. He often tells a story about a small publishing company he rents to in his downtown building. It started with just a couple of employees but quickly has grown to close to 10. “Those types of successes can add up,” Schumm said. “And if you can have your first success in Lawrence, you’re probably going to stay in Lawrence because it is a great place.” — City reporter Chad Lawhorn can be reached at 832-6362.

2nd person charged in 2008 shooting Douglas County prosecutors have charged a second person in connection with a 2008 shooting and robbery that occurred at an apartment on Redbud Lane. According to jail records, officers on Thursday served a warrant on charges of aggravated robbery and aggravated battery for Asia Shanae Morrison, 21. The warrant was served at the jail. Prosecutors earlier this week filed the same charges against Dustin D. Walker, 26, of Lawrence, who was already in jail for another shooting that occurred Dec. 5, 2010, at South Pointe Apartments. In the April 22, 2008, incident, a 20-year-old Lawrence man was shot in the leg as suspects took money from him in an apartment in the 2500 block of Redbud Lane. Morrison and Walker are both accused in taking part of the robbery that resulted in the victim being shot, according to court records.

Libyan leader recruiting more mercenaries Obama: Gadhafi ‘lost legitimacy to lead’ country By Paul Schemm Associated Press Writer

BREGA, LIBYA — Rebels reinforced a key oil port Thursday while facing new regime airstrikes in eastern Libya, and thousands of angry mourners buried victims of a counteroffensive by Moammar Gadhafi’s forces, shooting guns in the air, shouting “Down with Gadhafi!” and swearing to take vengeance. Although there have been stirrings of a diplomatic effort to ease the crisis, an opposition spokesman flatly ruled out any negotiations with Gadhafi, saying “his hands are tainted with blood.” President Barack Obama

insisted that Gadhafi leave office, declaring he had “lost the legitimacy to lead.” He pledged to hold Gadhafi and his loyalists accountable, saying the U.S. and the entire world were outraged by violence against the rebels, and he lauded U.N. sanctions meant to put international pressure on the longtime ruler. Signaling he was digging in, Gadhafi’s regime apparently has stepped up its recruitment of mercenaries from other African countries, with an official in neighboring Mali saying that 200-300 men have left for Libya in the last week. The International Criminal Court in the Netherlands said it will investigate Gadhafi, his sons and his inner circle for possible crimes against humanity in the violent crackdown of the 17-dayold uprising that sought to topple the man who has ruled Libya for four decades.

Luis Moreno-Ocampo, the court’s top prosecutor, said Gadhafi and several commanders and regime officials had formal or de facto control over forces that attacked protesters, and he promised “no impunity in Libya.” Army units that have joined the rebels fanned out in the oil facilities and port at Brega, armed with machine guns and rocket-propelled grenade launchers and dressed in camouflage army uniforms with checkered keffiyehs. They were backed by at least a dozen pickup trucks with mounted machine guns or towing rocket launchers. Government warplanes launched a new airstrike on the town Thursday morning, according to witnesses. It was not clear what they targeted, but it was likely an airstrip of the huge oil complex on the Mediterranean coast. No casualties were reported, and pro-Gadhafi forces

withdrew 80 miles to the west to another oil port, Ras Lanouf, after their defeat Wednesday by citizen militias from nearby towns and cities. Despite having little central organization or command, the anti-Gadhafi fighters were able to repel a force of several hundred regime troops that attacked after dawn. “We are in a position to control the area and we are deploying our forces,” a rebel officer in Brega told The Associated Press, speaking on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to talk to the media. At least 14 rebel fighters were killed in Wednesday’s battle, including AbdulSalaam Senoussi, whose father, Mohammed, came to Brega to claim his body. “You know, this is my son,” the grieving father said softly after identifying the body. He made a gesture like a pistol and said: “They shot him by plane.”

Notable Global food prices are the highest in 20 years and could increase further because of rising oil prices stemming from the unrest in Libya and the Mideast, a U.N. agency warned Thursday. Skyrocketing food prices have been among the triggers for protests in Egypt, Tunisia and elsewhere, and raised fears of a repeat of the food price crises in 2007 and 2008. Some experts point to key differences compared to those years: for one, the price of rice, a dominant component of regular diets in many parts of the world, is much lower today.

Drop in jobless claims raises hope for hiring

By Jeannine Aversa Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON — The job market suddenly looks brighter. The number of people filing for unemployment benefits sank last week to its lowest point in nearly three years, and retailers and other service companies posted strong results Thursday for last month. On the eve of the government’s February jobs report, the news suggests the economy may be about to take off despite growing concerns about inflation. The stock market had its best day in three months. The Dow Jones industrial average rose more than 190 points, or 1.6 percent, erasing most of its losses since the unrest in Libya began. And some analysts raised their forecasts for how many jobs the economy created last month. The consensus is 175,000, but many economists are now estimating 200,000 or more, and they expect the pace to hold for the rest of the year. That would almost certainly bring the unemployment rate, now 9 percent, down steadily. “This is a good harbinger of a healthier job market to

come,” said economist Sung Won Sohn at California State University. Applications for unemployment benefits fell by 20,000 to 368,000, the Labor Department said, the third decline in four weeks and the lowest level since May 2008. The figures are adjusted to account for seasonal differences. The four-week average, which smooths out volatility to give a broader perspective, fell below 400,000 for the first time since July 2008. When unemployment claims remain consistently below 375,000, that tends to signal steady declines in the unemployment rate. The figure peaked at 651,000 during the recession. “The evidence is just stacking up that the labor market is picking up decisively,” said economist Jim O’Sullivan at MF Global. Americans appear more confident about spending money, which could convince businesses that the time is right to start hiring more workers. Stores representing shopping tastes across the income spectrum reported strong sales for February, including J.C. Penney, Macy’s and Saks.

Breathing room Lied Center patrons now can see and enjoy what original designers had in mind for the center’s main lobby.


hat a difference a little space makes! In the early 1990s, when construction bids for the Lied Center on Kansas University’s West Campus came in over budget, difficult choices had to be made. At the time, scaling back the size of the center’s main lobby probably was a better choice than making additional cuts in the performance hall. Lied Center patrons had grown accustomed to tight quarters in the lobby, but now they have some room to spread out. Thanks to a $2.5 million gift from the Lied Foundation and $300,000 from the William T. Kemper Foundation, the lobby has been bumped out to its originally planned size. A ribbon-cutting ceremony for the 1,800-square-foot expansion is planned for next Tuesday, but the new space has been open to Lied Center audiences for several weeks. Lied Center patrons already enjoyed a world-class auditorium, but the lobby expansion makes a huge difference in the center’s ambiance and functions. During busy times before and after performances, the smaller lobby was crowded and difficult to traverse. It was almost impossible to stop and have a conversation with someone without interrupting the traffic flow. Lied Center staff say they already are seeing a difference in how their patrons interact in the new lobby. People in line to buy concessions at intermission no longer fill up the lobby. Rather than rushing to and from the door to their seats, people are more likely to stop and chat with fellow audience members. The new space encourages social interactions and provides additional space for displays or events related to various performances. Construction also is under way on a new education pavilion, also funded by the additional Lied gift. The 60-by-40-foot space will be used for a variety of purposes. Lied officials say it will be a good rehearsal space and also will be available for educational activities, pre-performance dinners and other events. About the only space for such events now is the Seymour Gallery, which also serves as the second-floor lobby, causing a variety of logistical problems for events on performance nights. The Lied Center is such a wonderful gift for the people of Lawrence and across the state. The recent lobby expansion and the education pavilion are more than amenities for the center; they vastly enhance the facility’s function and ability to bring a variety of performing arts experiences to area residents. Once again, the KU community has reason to thank the Lied Foundation and its sole trustee, Christina Hixson, for a gift that will keep on giving for generations to come.

Democratic Egypt crucial for Mideast The Internet and the airwaves are clogged with contradictory predictions of what the Mideast upheavals will mean to the region — and to us. I have conservative readers calling me an idiot for not understanding that the Egyptian revolution is a huge victory for the Islamists, even as Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.) extols the hope for secular democracy in Cairo alongside his buddy, Arizona Republican Sen. John McCain. Some pundits insist the Mideast revolts are a victory for al-Qaida, or Iran, while others say the revolts undercut both. So, after 11 days in Cairo, I guess I should take a stab at prognostication. Here goes: In the foreseeable, I don’t think these upheavals will present a clear-cut victory for either democracy or Islam, as each shaken country will be dealing with very different internal circumstances. But the overall trend — including the impact on America’s Mideast policy — will be set by what develops in Egypt. And in Egypt, there’s a decent chance that a more democratic government could emerge — including Islamists, but in a minority role. Before I explain why democracy has a chance, let me detail why a more-democratic Egypt would be crucial for the region. In the other countries undergoing upheavals, the odds for a transition to stable democracy are far, far slimmer. If Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi falls, he will leave a huge territory bereft of institutions and rent by tribal conflicts. In Yemen, where al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula is based, the

Islamist democracy — even one with flaws — it would provide a counterpoint to the claim that ‘Islam is the answer.’”

fall of Ali Abdullah Saleh could usher in tribal wars and a greater sway by radical clerics. This could pose a worrying threat to Saudi Arabia next door. Tunisia may muddle through, although its economy is reeling. Bahrain may find some compromise solution — but its protests, based on grievances by the emirate’s Shiite majority against Sunni rulers, can easily be manipulated by Shiite Iran. So, the outcome of Egypt’s revolution is crucial, and not just because of its size and its historic role as leader of the Arab world. If the Egyptian youth revolt leads to a non-Islamist democracy — even one with flaws — it would provide a counterpoint to the claim that “Islam is the answer.” A democratic Egypt would challenge the Iranian narrative that clerical rule is the future. It would help stabilize a post-Gad-

hafi Libya and a weak Tunisian democracy. It would provide a Sunni ally for Lebanese democrats who are trying to hold out against the pressures of Hezbollah. Of course, a democratic Egypt would not be as unquestioning an ally — or as quiescent a peace partner to Israel — as was Hosni Mubarak. Public pressure would force it to push much harder for a Palestinian state. But, based on many interviews in Cairo, I don’t believe the peace treaty with Israel would be breached. Egyptians don’t want war, and the Egyptian military would still have a key say in foreign affairs. This brings us to the question of whether an Egyptian democracy can emerge. The argument against this possibility assumes that the Muslim Brotherhood — Egypt’s best organized Islamist group, which is allowed to run candidates for parliament — will hijack the revolution. Yet the organizers of the demonstrations — and the vast bulk of the crowds — have not been Islamists. This revolution sought an end to corruption, and a representative government. The skeptics point to the mammoth demonstration in Tahrir Square on Feb. 18, at which the radical Sheikh Yusuf alQaradawi preached, as proof that the Muslim Brotherhood has already taken control of the streets. Supposedly, the whole crowd was shouting “on to Jerusalem” or some such words — proof of the coming Islamic putsch. I was in that crowd. No such mass chant took place (there were only small pockets of

chanters). The prayers led by Qaradawi took 30 minutes out of a celebration that continued for hours, during which the signs and chants of the crowd had almost nothing to do with Islam or Palestine. That said, the outcome of the revolution is far from certain. The Egyptian army, which is overseeing the transition to new elections, may commit errors that enable the Brotherhood to punch far above its weight (at an estimated 20 percent support from the public). On Monday, the army called for parliamentary elections in June. This fails to allow enough time for the groups that made the revolution to organize new political parties and mobilize the 80 percent of the public that usually doesn’t vote. Such an early ballot will benefit the Brotherhood, which is already organized, as well as the former governing party, which will no doubt return under a new name. Many of the young rebels believe the military wants to recreate the previous political scenario whereby there were only two political alternatives: the ruling elite and the scary Islamists. This makes the elite look preferable. This would be a tragic error. Egypt is ripe for democratic change that could help steady a region in dizzying transition. Those who have the Egyptian military’s ear — including its benefactors in Washington — should be sending this message loud and clear. — Trudy Rubin is a columnist and editorial board member for the Philadelphia Inquirer.



From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for March 4, 1911: YEARS "Four youthful AGO car thieves were IN 1911 taken in to custody yesterday on a charge of robbing a Santa Fe freight car of a roll of copper wire. The robbery was committed Thursday night, and in less than 24 hours, the offenders were behind the bars of the county jail." "Within a week Baker University expects to receive a gift of $125,000. To a denominational school, dependent entirely for support upon contributions to its endowment fund, a gift of $125,000 is no small sum. It will place Baker among the richest endowed colleges of the Missouri Valley. Baker university was established in 1858, and is the oldest college in Kansas. It has an enrollment of slightly less than 1,000 students." — Compiled by Sarah St. John

right, displays the evasive hypocrisy of the religious left. His theology, in brief, is that he “feels” like it’s so, so “deal with it.” If only that, we could shrug off his faith as a peccadillo, but Pitts has more. Noting the abrasive certainty of some atheists, he makes a facile comparison with overconfident “fundamentalists.” But that isn’t the term needed. To hold firmly to the fundamentals of a world view is not the problem, if those fundamentals are sound and supported by observation. The trouble is dogmatism: stubborn adherence to a prior belief despite contrary argument and evidence. “I believe it, so deal with it” is the voice of the dogmatist. The trouble with religious fundamentalists is not their focus on fundamentals; it’s that those fundamentals are implausible and ill-supported. Religious liberals commit the same unjustified leap, but with a nicer face.

To the editor: Mr. Burkhead’s March 1 letter reminded me of all I objected to concerning organized religion. I feel organized religion too often leads to prejudice, intolerance, obsession and sometimes fanaticism. Also, too often it promotes ignorance due to a rejection of science because facts may contradict the Old Testament or the Koran. I believe the true meaning of what Jesus actually stood for has been corrupted. The Jesus I know preached love, compassion and tolerance, not hate. People like the Phelps family and Mr. Burkhead illustrate what I mean by the corruption of the meaning of Jesus. Mr. Burkhead refers to the sin of our people and country for accepting gay rights. The real sinner, Mr. Burkhead, is you because of your hate and intolerance, and the terminal cancer you refer to is the ignorance you promote in your spiteful letters!

Food bank funds To the editor: Statistics from 2009 indicate 23.7 percent of Douglas County citizens live in poverty, 27,583 individuals, including 4,121 children. ECKAN/Just Food opened a warehouse food bank operation in October 2009 with available federal stimulus funds. In January 2010, 401 households used the pantry; by January 2011, 731. Loss of federal funds and grants, plus increased demand, has put a financial strain on the pantry, threatening its future. They operate on a budget of $132,000 annually. This pays for two full-time employees, rent, insurance and accompanying business expenses. Volunteer hours equal three full-time employees. Just Food partners with seven local pantries, organizations like CLO, and partners with Harvesters, allowing for purchase of

groceries for 10 cents a pound. Last year, food distributed was 700,000 pounds. Food drives help keep items on the shelf, but the future for providing help to the hungry lies in sustained financial giving. A 200pound food donation becomes 2,000 pounds when replaced by dollars. Leadership Lawrence adopted Just Food for a project, creating a secure website ( for donations. All contributions stay in Douglas County and are tax deductible. Closing of Just Food would put additional strain on Ballard, Salvation Army, Heartland and smaller emergency pantries. Customers are limited to one visit a month and receive about five days of food.

3 sentenced in Lyme disease fraud KANSAS CITY, KAN. — Three California residents have been sentenced to probation and ordered to pay restitution in Kansas for a fraudulent scheme to cure Lyme disease. Seventy-nine-year-old Robert Bradford was sentenced this week to five years’ probation and forfeiture of $400,000. His 70-year-old wife, Carole Bradford, got five years’ probation and a $700,000 forfeiture judgment, while 65-year-old Brigitte Byrd was sentenced to three years’ probation and a $10,000 forfeiture. All three Chula Vista, Calif., residents also were ordered to pay more than $40,000 in restitution. The three worked with Kansas doctor John Toth of Topeka, who was sentenced last month to time served. Toth admitted he and the three co-defendants sold a microscope they said could diagnose Lyme disease, and promoted a drug treatment plan they claimed could cure it.

Brown ‘amazed’ by fieldhouse fans Matt Tait

LHS boys block out criticism

By Gary Bedore

Hall of Fame basketball coach Larry Brown stood in a corner of Kansas University’s shiny, new practice facility Thursday afternoon, his eyes focused on the court as he conducted a one-onone media interview. “I don’t know if I love the games, (but) I love the practices, love being around the coaches and players,” said the 70-year-old former KU coach, who left his post with the NBA’s Charlotte Bobcats in late December. In his element observing a short KU practice with former Kentucky coach Billy Gillispie on Thursday, Brown admits he was blown away by the atmosphere in Allen Fieldhouse for

INSIDE KU point guard Tyshawn Taylor talks to the media for the first time since his suspension. Story on page 3B Wednesday’s 64-51 Senior Night victory over Texas A&M. “The thing that amazed me is the place was full — after the game,” Brown said of 16,300 fans sticking around well after 10 p.m., for speeches of Mario Little, Brady Morningstar and Tyrel Reed. “It was pretty darn impressive. Of course the Senior Day I remember is Archie’s ... when Leonard Hamilton was nice enough to let Archie (Marshall)

come in at the end and be part of it,” Brown added. He was referring to KU’s 75-57 victory over Oklahoma State on March 5, 1988. OSU coach Hamilton, who had current KU coach Bill Self on his staff, allowed Marshall to limp on the floor and, with the aid of crutches, hoist an uncontested shot — one that missed — with 1:33 left. Allen Fieldhouse had no video board that day to show highlights of KU seniors Marshall, Danny Manning and Chris Piper. On Wednesday, Brown, who coached at KU from 1984-88, was able to watch numerous videos, Nick Krug/Journal-World Photo including the stirring pre-game piece which opens with his FORMER KANSAS MEN’S BASKETBALL COACH quote: “There’s no better place to LARRY BROWN TAKES IN the action of the KUTexas A&M game Wednesday at Allen Please see BROWN, page 3B Fieldhouse.

If you listened to the critics, you heard that the Lawrence High boys basketball team had nothing but problems heading into Wednesday’s shocking upset of Olathe South in the opening round of sub-state. “Junior guard KJ Pritchard shoots too much,” they said. “They don’t have a big man,” others grumbled. “Outside of their top three, the team has no talent,” also was a popular jab. Any one of those criticisms, if true, could’ve crippled the Lions before the postseason began. And that was to say nothing about Olathe South being the No. 1 seed, having a top-five state ranking and a 17-3 record. But none of that mattered Wednesday, and credit for that goes to the way LHS coach Mike Lewis navigated his way through a rough season along with the ability of his players to buy what he was selling. All year, Lewis preached staying in the moment, playing for the possession in front of you and not worrying about what happened in the past or what might happen in the future, good or bad.

NFL, union agree to extension W A S H I N G T O N (AP ) — America’s favorite sport is still in business — for another day. The NFL and the players’ union decided Thursday to keep the current collective bargaining agreement in place for an additional 24 hours so that negotiations can continue. “The parties have agreed to a one-day extension,” federal mediator George Cohen said in a onesentence statement after the sides

met with him for about eight hours. The CBA was set to expire at midnight, which would likely have prompted the first work stoppage since 1987 for a league that rakes in $9 billion a year. “For all our fans who dig our game, we appreciate your patience as we work through this,” union executive director DeMaurice Smith said as he emerged from the talks. “We are going to keep working. We want to play football.”


BYU hoops deserves kudos By Bill Plaschke Los Angeles Times

LOS ANGELES — They are charged with assault on a Tuesday, and play linebacker on a Saturday. They are caught smoking dope in the morning, and practice free throws in the afternoon. Today’s college playing fields are dotted with athletes bearing fresh mug shots, lingering handcuff marks and not a trace of accountability. Athletes are often punished only to the degree at which the team will not feel pain. If the game is important, they are suspended only for the first half. If there is even a hint of the word “allegedly,” the school abdicates its moral authority to the legal system and doesn’t suspend them at all. All of which would classify what happened with the Brigham Young basketball team as one shining moment. This week, the highly-ranked Cougars probably cost themselves riches, glory and a legitimate chance at their first national basketball championship after suspending one of their best players, Brandon Davies, for the rest of the season for violating the school’s honor code. The infraction? Davies had premarital sex. The rule? A section of the honor code that requires BYU students to “live a chaste and virtuous life.” That might not be your rule. That might be the kind of rule that makes you titter and wince and wonder, how can any school not attached to a seminary demand celibacy of college kids in a world in which seven out of 10 Americans have had sexual intercourse by age 19? But the point is, it is BYU’s rule, and kudos to the school for publicly enforcing it at the worst possible time with one of the most visible of students while risking damage to the school’s athletic reputation and national stature. BYU knows this will hurt immediately, Davies’ suspension robbing the team of its leading rebounder and third-leading scorer, probably dashing all chances of ending their NCAA record of tournament futility — 25 appearances and zero Final Fours. BYU knows this will hurt in the future, costing potential athletic and academic recruits who may now be wondering: How can I spend four years at a place that really gives suspensions for sex? BYU suspended the kid anyway, and if you don’t believe in its code, you have to love its honor. Before the suspension, the Cougars were the third-ranked team in the country with the No. 1 RPI rating and were 27-2. In the first game after the suspension Wednesday, they were hammered, 82-64, by unranked New Mexico while being outrebounded, 45-29. The game ended with their star Jimmer Fredette, one of the nation’s best shooters and a potential tournament darling, sitting alone on the bench with his head in his hands. “I think a lot of people try to judge this, whether this is right or this is wrong ... that’s not the issue,” coach Dave Rose said. “It is a commitment that you make. And everybody makes the commitment.” The commitment is the signing of an honor code that also includes honesty and clean language, and abstinence from drugs, alcohol, coffee and tea. But nothing is apparently as difficult for hormonedriven college kids as the “chaste and virtuous life” clause, which includes no sexual relationships outside marriage. Perhaps as amazing as BYU officials enforcing the code now is the fact that they didn’t actually catch Davies breaking it. Either Davies or his girlfriend turned themselves in, and Davies later admitted his transgression not only to school officials, but also to his teammates. The conviction to enforce the rules on your powerhouse basketball team at the outset of this country’s premier basketball spectacle? That could be the only thing about this March that isn’t madness.

Said NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell as he left: “We are working as hard as we can.” Allowing the CBA to expire could put the two sides on the road to a year without football, even though opening kickoff of the 2011 season is still six months away. The labor unrest comes as the NFL is at the height of its popularity, breaking records for TV ratings: This year’s Super Bowl was

the most-watched program in U.S. history. If the CBA expires, the owners could lock out the players, and the union could decertify to try and prevent that through the courts — something the NFLPA did in 1989. It formed again in 1993. NFL lead negotiator Jeff Pash said the sides had “good discussions and exchanges,” and “we’re going to be back here (this) morning.”

Maier leads Royals to 8-2 spring victory TEMPE, ARIZ. — The Los Angeles Angels are expecting big things from Ervin Santana again this season. The right-hander recorded four outs in his first spring training start Thursday, allowing two runs and two hits in the Angels’ 8-2 loss to the Kansas City Royals. Santana went 17-10 with a 3.92 earned-run average last season, setting career highs for wins, complete games (four) and innings (222 2/3). He figures to be Los Angeles’ No. 3 starter this year behind Jered Weaver and Dan Haren. Santana walked one and struck out one against the Royals, finishing with 38 pitches. Mitch Maier went 4-for-4 with two RBIs for Kansas City, which finished with 11 hits. Kila Ka’aihue had two hits and drove in a run. “Mitch Maier was the star of the game,” Royals manager Ned Yost said. Kyle Davies worked two innings in his second spring start for Kansas City. The righthander allowed two runs and two hits. “The off-speed stuff has been pretty good so far,” said Davies, who was 8-12 with a 5.34 ERA in 32 starts for the Royals in 2010. “I commanded my delivery pretty good. I commanded the baseball very good. There were a couple of pitches that got away.” Royals closer Joakim Soria made his first spring appearance, striking out two in a scoreless inning.

NFL Hawk, Packers agree to five years MILWAUKEE — A.J. Hawk’s absence from the Green Bay Packers didn’t last long. Hawk’s agent, Mike McCartney, said Thursday that the linebacker signed a five-year deal with the Packers just one day after he was released in a cost-cutting move. Terms of the new deal were not immediately available.

O-lineman Gallery leaving Raiders ALAMEDIA, CALIF. — The Oakland Raiders are letting offensive lineman Robert Gallery leave as a free agent after seven years with the team. Raiders senior executive John Herrera told The Associated Press on Thursday that the decision was made because of the vast difference in what the two sides thought Gallery should be paid.

Source: Bears, Peppers rework deal CHICAGO — The Chicago Bears have restructured Pro Bowl defensive end Julius Peppers’ contract to create more salary-cap room for next season. A person with knowledge of the situation confirmed the move Friday night. Peppers signed a six-year deal worth potentially $91.5 million a year ago, was due a $10.5 million roster bonus for next season. Instead, the team exercised its right to convert that money into a signing bonus and prorate it over the remaining years of his contract, which runs through the 2015 season.

COLLEGE FOOTBALL Oregon: payments within rules EUGENE, ORE. — School officials have confirmed that Oregon paid about $28,000 to a pair of recruiting services, but claim the payments and services were within NCAA rules. Yahoo! Sports reported Friday that Oregon paid $25,000 to Will Lyles of Complete Scouting Services in Houston. Lyles has a mentoring relationship with Ducks running back Lache Seastrunk., citing unidentified sources, reported the NCAA is probing Seastrunk’s recruitment. The Oregon athletic department issued a statement: “This is something we remain confident that is within the acceptable guidelines allowed by the NCAA and occurred with the knowledge of the department’s compliance office.”

GOLF Levin begins with lead at Honda PALM BEACH GARDENS, FLA. — Spencer Levin is in the lead after the first day at the windy Honda Classic. Flagsticks rattled, putters shook and scores soared Thursday as the PGA Tour began its Florida swing in breezes that were more than balmy. Levin handled the conditions best, shooting a 3-under 67 for a 1-shot lead over five others. The round was suspended because of darkness with 12 players still on the course.

NBA Celtics F Davis will miss a week BOSTON — Boston Celtics forward Glen Davis will miss a week with a left knee injury. An MRI on Thursday showed that Davis has patellar tendinitis, but no major damage. Davis, in his third season out of LSU, was injured in the Celtics’ 115-103 victory over the Phoenix Suns on Wednesday night. He is averaging 11.6 points and 5.3 rebounds.

Mavs claim swingman Brewer DALLAS — The Dallas Mavericks signed forward Corey Brewer on Thursday, giving them a young, athletic swingman who is likely to help most on defense. Brewer was waived Tuesday by the New York Knicks. As soon as he cleared waivers, he agreed to a multi-year deal with the Mavericks. Brewer averaged 8.6 points and 2.7 rebounds this season. He was dealt from Minnesota to the Knicks as part of the deal that sent Carmelo Anthony to New York.

Jayhawks defeated in extra innings J-W Staff Reports

KANSAS GUARD TYSHAWN TAYLOR KNOCKS THE BALL away from Texas A&M forward Naji Hibbert in KU’s victory Wednesday at Allen Fieldhouse.


Taylor focused on winning By Gary Bedore

a spark. If that’s what’s best for my team, I’m happy with it. “Elijah has been playing amazing. If he plays the way he’s been playing, we’re that much deeper, that much better. I’m excited to see how he continues to play and how coach plays us. Seeing him play hard is something that will make me want to work harder, to do things different.” Johnson — he had two points with three assists and three turnovers Wednesday — said the competition for minutes “is a positive outcome, no matter what.” KU coach Bill Self likes Johnson’s play since the Taylor suspension. “He used to be like Velcro. He’d stick to screens. It seems to me he’s getting through things better now,” Self said. “It’s going to be by committee. We don’t need to be playing 10 guys a game anymore,” Self noted. “The reality is Brady (Morningstar) and Tyrel (Reed) are playing pretty well at the other two (guard) spots. Elijah, Josh (Selby), Tyshawn are battling for minutes. It’s game to game, too. If guys aren’t making shots and somebody is, they’ll get the majority of the minutes.” Self said Johnson “would have played more,” (Wednesday) had he not remained on the floor after getting knocked in the head by an Aggie. “He got his bell rung. He was on the floor long enough for me to sub. He said he’s OK after he got up. It was too late. Maybe that’s a good lesson for everybody to learn,” Self said.

Back on Feb. 12, responding to a question about troubles at rival Kansas State University, Kansas University junior Tyshawn Taylor acknowledged his own somewhat stormy past. “My name scrolled across the bottom of ESPN a couple times, too, so I mean, they’ll be fine,” Taylor said of the Wildcats. A week and a half later, the Wildcats indeed were back on the right track, yet he was in trouble — getting suspended for violating undisclosed team rules. Taylor missed two games, was reinstated Wednesday against Texas A&M, then Thursday met the media for the first time since committing his misstep. “Yeah, it happened again, right?” a contrite Taylor said of his returning to the ESPN screen. “I broke team rules and my punishment was understandable. The punishment was definitely fair. I did my time. I’m back with the team, so I’m definitely happy.” A former starter, Taylor came off the bench to score nine points with three assists and two turnovers while playing 17 minutes in KU’s 64-51 win over the Aggies. KU coach Bill Self said Elijah Johnson would start and Taylor remain in a reserve role for Saturday’s 11 a.m. game at Missouri. “I am focused on winning and being better for my team. ● If we win, I’m cool, man,” TayTrophy talk: The Jayhawks lor said. “I think I played pretty well off the bench, bringing already have won a share of


coach, there’s no better place to go to school, there’s no better place to play (than Kansas).” “The NBA goes out of their way to have all these things going on. I can’t imagine a better beginning of a game than that, especially when the first thing you see is Wilt Chamberlain,” Brown said. Of his own quote, also framed on a wall outside the KU locker room, Brown noted: “It’s pretty amazing to know you are part of something so special here.” Wednesday’s victory assured KU at least a share of its school-record seventh straight regular-season conference championship. Last school from a major conference to win as many in a row was UCLA, which won 13 straight from 1967 to ‘79. “It blows me away,” Brown said of the streak, engineered by one of the members of his coaching tree, eighth-year KU coach Self. “Roy’s body of work was phenomenal,” he added of successor Roy Williams’ 15 ultra-successful seasons. “Being here eight years and seeing his (Self ’s) body of work and the way he does it, how humble he is and how he includes everybody and respects everybody, it is one of the great feats. “You look at the ACC, Big East, Pac-10, Big Ten, any conference, there’s not a lot of difference. I don’t see people accomplishing that in those places. He’s done it

with all different kinds of players, all different kinds of kids. I was in Philly when John (Calipari, one of Brown’s former KU assistants) was recruiting the (Morris) twins (to Memphis). I got to see them play. I thought they were really young talented kids. Their improvement is remarkable.” Brown didn’t discuss what he likes or maybe doesn’t like about this year’s KU team. That’s something he figures to share with Self and Self alone. “We went to lunch today. We had dinner last night after the game. You can pick up stuff just talking to him about anything,” said Self, who worked as a grad assistant for Brown in 1985-86. “He’s a very wise man. He and Billy are watching practice today. Hopefully they’ll watch with the intent of helping me. “They can’t talk to the players about anything (regarding specific instruction in accordance with NCAA rules), but certainly I like it when you have a different set of eyes to come and evaluate the team,” Self added. Brown — the only coach to have won both an NCAA (KU, 1988) and NBA (Detroit, 2004) championship — is allowed to make small talk with the Jayhawks. “Hi, coach. Thanks for coming,” freshman Josh Selby said, shaking Brown’s hand while chasing a rebound. “You healthy?” Brown asked Selby. “Yes, getting there,” responded the Baltimore combo guard, who has been hobbled by a stress reaction in his right foot. “Good, nice to see you,”

the conference title entering Saturday’s game. If KU loses and Texas beats Baylor, UT ties KU. A Jayhawk victory over an MU team that is undefeated at home, would make KU outright champ. “We don’t want to share. We are playing for something real big,” Elijah Johnson said. “I don’t know if going undefeated at home (MU is unbeaten in Mizzou Arena) is as big as being the Big 12 champion, but you see the picture. We’ve got to win one more to win it. We’ve got to bring it home.” Self said “in this particular situation it’s totally good to be selfish. I don’t think anybody would like to share if they don’t have to.” ●

Comeback award: KU’s Thomas Robinson and Angel Goodrich are on the list of finalists for the 11th-annual V Foundation Comeback Award. Robinson has suffered through the deaths of his grandmother, grandfather and mother. Goodrich is coming off her second ACL surgery. Other finalists: Jessica Breland, North Carolina; Dawn Evans, James Madison; Jacki Gemelos, USC; Levi Knutson, Colorado; Andrea Mingo, Purdue; Cory Pflieger, Rice; Kim Rodgers, Maryland; Krystal Thomas, Duke; and Whitney Hand, Oklahoma. ●

Recruiting: Braeden Anderson, a 6-8, 230-pound senior forward from Wilbraham And Monson Academy in Wilbraham, Mass., tells he will make a recruiting visit to KU. He calls KU and Kentucky his “top schools.”

Brown added as Selby headed back to the court. Blessed with a quick wit, Brown needled Self who, asked a reporter and his mentor what they were talking about. “He was commenting about your legs,” Brown deadpanned as Self jogged away wearing his droopy, blue KU hoops shorts. On a final serious note, Brown reiterated how proud he is of his coaching tree, one that includes KU grads Mark Turgeon (Texas A&M) and Tad Boyle (Colorado). Turgeon, Boyle and Self have all been mentioned as possible Big 12 coach of the year candidates. “Last night was different. It was interesting seeing ‘Turg’ over there. I’m proud of him. He’s done an amazing job with that team,” Brown said of the Aggies, who are headed to the NCAA Tournament. “I watch him a lot, talk to him a lot. Tad’s team had a tough loss last night (vs. Iowa State) in that they might have moved up in the tournament. I was teasing that I have so many problems, watching my g uys coach when they coach against each other. It’s the best part of coaching to know guys who have been so good to you are doing so well,” Brown added. Brown, of course, doesn’t need to coach again to solidify his position as one of the greats. As to whether he wants to coach again? “I think so. I don’t know at what level or what capacity. I look in the mirror. I know I’m 70. Inside I don’t feel like that. I still have a passion for the game,” he said.

SURPRISE, ARIZ. — Freshman Alex Cox pitched six strong innings and Jake Marasco collected two hits, but it was not enough for the Kansas University baseball team. UC Riverside’s Tony Nix singled home the winning run in the bottom of the 10th inning as the Highlanders topped the Jayhawks, 2-1, Thursday afternoon in the Coca Cola Surprise Classic at George Brett Field. KU snapped its three-game winning streak and fell to 4-4, while UCR improved to 6-4 with its fourth straight win. Kansas fell in extra innings for the second time this season. The Jayhawks produced their only run in the fifth when Brandon Macias and Jordan Dreiling both reached base on errors and Kaiana Eldredge hit a sacrifice fly to left to tie the game at 1-1. KU put the go-ahead runs on base in the top of the 10th, but Macias’ long fly ball to center field was hauled in just in front of the fence with two outs. The Highlanders scored the winning run on a lead-off walk, a sacrifice and Nix’s single to center with one out. Cox, making just his second collegiate start, went six innings allowing one run on six hits with a walk and four strikeouts. He became the fourth Kansas pitcher to record a quality start in the team’s last five games. Marasco collected two of KU’s four hits, including a leadoff double in the seventh. KU will look to bounce back today when it takes on Cal State Bakersfield at 5 p.m. in Surprise, Ariz.

LHS to face Pioneers again By Clark Goble Journal-World Sports Writer

OLATHE — Ten days ago, the Lawrence High boys basketball team traveled to Leavenworth and looked lethargic in a 70-49 loss to the Pioneers. It wasn’t pretty either, as the Lions trailed 14-4 after a quarter and 30-15 at halftime. That result doesn’t bother coach Mike Lewis too much heading into today’s matchup with Leavenworth at Olathe North for the right to go to the state tournament. In fact, he’s confident that his team’s confidence after knocking off top-seeded

Olathe South on Wednesday will give it an advantage. “We like being the underdog, and like the fact that we’re getting another chance at Leavenworth,” Lewis said. Tipoff is set for 5:30 p.m. Leavenworth (15-6), seeded fifth in the sub-state, knocked off fourth-seeded Topeka, 5647. The Lions (8-13) took down Olathe South, 47-44, in overtime. KJ Pritchard led the Lions with 21 points in the first matchup, but sprained his ankle during Wednesday’s win. Lewis said that Pritchard will test the ankle during warmups and try to play.

Just like on Wednesday, Lewis expects the other 11 guys on the roster to be ready to play significant minutes. The rotation will probably shrink to seven or eight guys in the second half, but everyone will get a shot to make an impact on the game. “Our guys are waiting for that opportunity to get on the court,” Lewis said. Leavenworth’s Grant Greenberg and Preston Padgett combined for 35 points for the first meeting. Kyle Wiggins is also a potent offensive threat, scoring 26 points in the Pioneers’ victory against Topeka on Wednesday.

FREE STATE’S ABBEY CASADY (3) FIGHTS FOR POSITION against Topeka High’s Daria Sprew (45). The Firebirds won, 65-56, on Thursday at Free State.

case, the Firebirds are a pretty quick study. Among FSHS’s crop of sophomores, Courtney Hoag, Alexa Gaumer and Scout Wiebe combined for 18 points on 8-of-10 shooting off the bench. Fellow sophomore Chelsea Casady tallied seven points and five rebounds. Abbey Casady — though she missed her only shot — bumped and banged down low with Topeka’s primary postthreat Daria Sprew all night. An unglamorous task, perhaps, but she drew three charges and often visibly frustrated the Trojans best player. “She’s probably got to be the smallest post player around,” Duncan said of the 5foot-9 sophomore. “But she might be the toughest.” Abbey Casady takes pride

TOPEKA (56) Brittney Redmond 2-8 0-0 6, Brittany Harden 14 0-0 2, Jasmine Benning 6-7 1-2 13, Whitney Brooks 3-12 0-0 8, Daria Sprew 11-18 0-1 22, Brianna Madden 0-0 0-0 0, Krystal Corhn 2-4 1-2.

in earning her bumps and bruises on the defensive end. “That’s my time to shine during the game,” she said. “That’s one of the parts (of my game) where I truly feel confident.” Junior Lynn Robinson — one of the few Firebirds who logged significant minutes last year — scored all six of her points late, but penetrated the lane and kicked it out to her teammates for open jumpers early on.

Robinson finished with a team-high seven assists and Kirkpatrick put in 14 to lead FSHS into the half with a 3228 lead. The Firebirds were ahead, often comfortably, for most of the night, but the Trojans, led by Sprew (22 points) in the low post, mounted several rallies. FSHS’s lead seemed most in jeopardy midway through the fourth quarter as Topeka cut the lead to 56-52, prompting Duncan to call a timeout to settle things down. Not that it was totally necessary. Kirkpatrick calmly drained a three-pointer, and after the two sides exchanged baskets, she coasted to the rim to put FSHS on top, 63-56, then iced the game with two free throws. “We never seemed flustered,” Duncan said. “We just kept attacking, kept playing, our body language never changed. And that’s what good teams do.”


Tongie boys fall; De Soto advances By Benton Smith

K A N S A S C I T Y , K AN . — The Tonganoxie High boys basketball team witnessed first hand Thursday night just how explosive Sumner Academy, the defending Class 4A state champs, could be. The Sabres utilized quick, devastating scoring outbursts in a sub-state semifinal at Piper High to beat the Chieftains, 90-65. THS (10-12) first felt the force of Sumner’s ability in the opening two and a half minutes of the second quarter. Tonganoxie held a 21-20 lead before the Sabres (19-3) rattled off 13 unanswered points (11 of which came from junior guard Benjamin Parker, who hit three three-pointers in that stretch) to take a 12-point lead. As if that wasn’t enough, after the Chieftains stopped the bleeding with baskets from Colby Yates and Dane Erickson, Sumner went on another 13-0 run, which featured another Parker threepointer, in just under four minutes. The most devastating outburst, though, came in a game-changing minute and a half that began with a second

left in the third quarter. THS had cut a 19-point halftime deficit to seven in the final minute and had forced Sumner into a missed shot on its last possession of the third when Sabres junior forward Marcus Allen brought down an offensive rebound and put it back up for a basket just before the horn. Sumner rode the momentum of that second-chance basket into the fourth quarter, capping a 10-0 run with a one-handed baseline throwdown by junior Vernon Vaughn. Tonganoxie coach Shawn Phillips said those surges were the difference in his team’s season-ending loss, because he felt the Chieftains held their own for the most part. “For a majority of the game I think we were right there with them, toe to toe,” Phillips said. “They just had a few three-minute spurts where they dominated.” With two 13-0 runs before halftime, the Sabres made the most of Tonganoxie’s eight second-quarter turnovers, Phillips said. “In the second quarter, we came out and we turned the basketball over early,” the coach said, “and that’s something that we stressed that we

couldn’t do — give them easy opportunities.” Down 48-29 at the half, THS showed resolve in the third quarter, when junior center Erickson scored 10 of his team-leading 29 points and senior point guard Jeremy Carlisle put up eight of his 15 points. A Yates baseline floater near the end of an 11-2 Tonganoxie run marked the only time someone besides Erickson or Carlisle scored for Tonganoxie in the third. The Chieftains were able to make it a seven-point game with 31 seconds to go in the third. Tonganoxie 21 8 20 16 — 65 Sumner Academy 20 28 10 22 — 90 Tonganoxie — Dane Erickson 11-17 7-8 29, Dylan Scates 5-14 0-2 11, Colby Yates 3-9 0-0 7, Jeremy Carlisle 6-10 2-2 15, Austin Vickers 0-5 12 1, Josh Ghale 0-1 2-2 2, Brennen Williams 0-2 00 0.

Boys De Soto 48, Santa Fe Trail 41 SPRING HILL —A 17-point third quarter propelled De Soto over Santa Fe Trail in Class 4A sub-state action. Santa Fe Trail 12 4 10 15 — 41 De Soto 10 6 17 15 — 48 Santa Fe Trail — Anthony Perry 2, Tyler Shaffer 2, Jacob Ullery 4, Dalton Abel 17, Garrett Abel 2, Alex Dahl 10, Denver Ramsey 4. De Soto — Mason Wedel 6, Jon Hastings 2, Brett Williams 7, Ian Kelly 1, Kyle McCulloch 2, John Williams 3, Joey Johnson 19, Aaron Mutterfield 8.

whatever they do after high school. “We didn’t win as many games as we wanted to on the basketball court,” Wood said. “The important thing is that they’re great people.” Green led the Lions (6-15) with 10 points. Peterson added four points and five rebounds. Wood loses the seven seniors, but some underclassmen gained valuable experience during the season. Haswood became a starter and threepoint specialist, and junior Brianna Anglin and junior Krista Costa played important roles off the bench. Wood said he was definitely more comfortable with the program than he was at the same time last year. “We just need to get a lot better,” Wood said. No single moment from the season truly stuck out in Wood’s mind. Instead, he just remembered how excited his team was after it won. Seeing those flashes of success motivates both the coaching staff and the players. “We try to bust our butt every day to get better,” Wood said. “Winning’s a great feeling. It’s hard to win. It’s easy to lose, and it’s hard to win.”

Mexico’s Bravo settles on K.C. PHOENIX (AP) — Omar Bravo is a veteran star on Mexico’s most popular club and has been all over the United States for games in big cities. When he agreed to play for a Major League Soccer team, he wanted to make his mark where other players from Mexico had not. He settled on Sporting Kansas City, which opens its season this month along with other MLS teams. “There had already been other (Mexican) players in other states in the United States, and in Chicago, Los Angeles,” Bravo said in Spanish after a recent preseason practice in Arizona. Plus, the heart of the Midwest represented something different, something removed from the distractions of bigger-money, bigger-visibility soccer in Mexico, where Bravo has long played for Guadalajara, the popular team known as Chivas. Bravo had a chat last year with Sporting Kansas City coach Peter Vermes and liked what he heard. In August, he agreed to come to Kansas City as an MLS designated player through a loan agreement with Chivas, MLS and Sporting KC. Luis Angel Landin of Mexico was the Houston Dynamo’s first designated player,joining the team last year. Mexican

star Cuauhtemoc Blanco signed with the Chicago Fire in 2007, boosting home attendance and helping the team reach three straight conference finals. Two other Mexican stars joined the MLS last summer — Nery Castillo signed with Chicago and national team c a p t a i n R a fa e l M a rq u e z w i t h New Yo rk — b ut Bravo’s deal allowed him to finish his season with Chivas before heading to preseason practices. The 30-year-old Bravo has 16 goals in 65 international appearances, scoring twice in the 2006 World Cup. He said he is at an important point in his career, and that he likes a challenge. Never mind the fact that designated players haven’t always fared so well in the MLS, or that most Mexican stars who’d come to the mainly American league had failed to live up to expectations. “It’s different. It’s a good league,” Bravo said “There’s a lot of ignorance with respect to the league in other places, you can say that about Mexico, too. It’s good, though, to recognize how much this league has grown, both how physical it is and how much talent there is, and that’s the important thing right now.” During the preseason, Bravo has been playing wide

as part of a three-man group of forwards with the first unit. “Comes to training every day, puts it in, doesn’t take a play off,” Vermes said. “He’s added something, the mentoring aspect. He’s working with some of the other guys on the team, and he waits for the specific times to do it, most opportune times to do it. And then finally, just his experience on the field and the way he plays. He’s a very good player and he’s fitting into our system very well.” It’s a big season for Sporting KC, formerly the Kansas City Wizards. Expectations of success are raised with the arrival of Bravo, the re-branding of the club and a new soccer-specific stadium that will open this summer. “I think what it does is it just keeps putting us out there, with a face like his and a player like him,” Vermes said of Bravo. “He isn’t just a face, he’s an icon to the Mexican community for sure. We have (a significant) Mexican community (in the Kansas City area) and I think they’re really excited to come watch him play.” Bravo has drawn small crowds of Mexican fans in Chivas jerseys even at preseason matches in Arizona. In Kansas City, he said he was initially surprised at how many Latino fans he’s encountered.

Hot-shooting Pirates snap St. John’s streak The Associated Press

Seton Hall 84, No. 15 St. John’s 70 N E W A R K , N . J . — Jeremy Hazell scored a season-high 31 points and Seton Hall, the worst three-point shooting team in the Big East, made a season-best 12 from beyond the arc in a victory over St. John’s on Thursday night, snapping the Red Storm’s sixgame winning streak. Freshman Fuquan Edwin had a career-best 19 points for the Pirates (12-17, 6-11), who had lost three straight and five of six. Dwight Hardy scored 23 points for St. John’s (19-10, 116), which was one of the hottest teams in the country, having won eight of nine. But the Red Storm fell apart in the f inal minutes, getting outscored, 14-2, over the last 4 minutes that included coach Steve Lavin and senior forward Justin Burrell being ejected in two separate incidents. The win gave Seton Hall a 2-8 record against ranked teams this season, the other win coming at Syracuse. Lavin was given two technical fouls by official Joe Lindsey for arguing during a timeout with 1:55 to play and Seton Hall leading, 77-68. Burrell was called for a flagrant foul and was ejected by official John Cahill after he ran down Seton Hall reserve Anali Okoloji with 7.6 seconds left and the outcome definitely decided. ST.

No. 10 Wisconsin 77, Indiana 67 BLOOMINGTON, IND. — Jordan Taylor scored a career-high 39 points and almost singlehandedly stopped Indiana’s second-half charge, leading Wisconsin to a victory. With three of Wisconsin’s starters in foul trouble, Taylor accounted for all the Badgers’ points in a decisive 14-4 run midway through the second half. That spurt turned a 46-45 lead into a 60-49 advantage. Taylor went 11 for 19 from the field, including a 7-for-8 night from three-point range, and made all 10 of his freethrow attempts. He fell one point shy of the Assembly Hall record for an opposing player, set by Michigan State’s Terry Furlow in 1976 and matched when the Spartans’ Shawn Respert scored 40 in 1995. The Badgers (23-6, 13-4 Big Ten) now have won eight straight against Indiana, their longest winning streak in the series since an 11-game run from 1912-19. They will carry a four-game winning streak into Sunday’s rematch at No. 1 Ohio State. Verdell Jones led Indiana (12-18, 3-14) with 18 points and Jordan Hulls had 15. But the Hoosiers have lost seven straight overall, four in a row. The Badgers looked as if they had seized control when they extended a 32-28 halftime lead to 41-33.

No. 18 Arizona 70, Oregon State 59 T U C S O N , A R I Z . — Derrick Williams had 15 points and 12 rebounds, Lamont Jones added 17 points and Arizona earned a share of its first Pac10 title in six years with a victory over Oregon State. Coming off consecutive losses for the first time this season, Arizona (24-6, 13-4 Pac-10) overcame some early shooting woes with defensive pressure, then pulled away in the second half to move within a game of its first undefeated home season in 12 years. The Wildcats had an efficient night offensively with 17 assists and eight turnovers, then earned a share of the conference title when UCLA lost to Washington. Arizona can win the title outright by beating Oregon at home on Saturday. Oregon State (10-18, 5-12) shot well (50 percent), but had 22 turnovers and was worn down by Arizona’s depth while losing its 10th straight on the road. Devon Collier led the Beavers with 12 points. Arizona needed a pick-meup after its trip to SoCal went awry. Hoping to lock up the Pac10 title, the Wildcats instead floundered against Southern California and UCLA, making the final two home games a lot more important than they had hoped.

WACO, TEXAS (AP) — A grand jury declined to indict Baylor guard LaceDarius Dunn for assault Thursday, effectively ending the case that began last fall with his arrest for allegedly breaking his girlfriend’s jaw. Abel Reyna, the McLennan County district attorney who inherited the case when he took office in January, said he reviewed the details and did additional investigation. The grand jury then got the case and made its decision when it convened Thursday. Dunn’s attorney, Vik Deivanayagam, said in a statement that the player was “was pleased to be exonerated” by Baylor, Reyna and the grand jury. Dunn, who last month became Baylor’s career leading scorer, missed the first three games of the regular season after his arrest for aggravated assault, a felony charge related to an alleged domestic dispute with a woman in September. The woman, LaCharlesla Edwards, who is also the mother of Dunn’s young son, disputed police accounts. She had asked that charges be dropped. “Lace appreciated the unending public support, and he is most grateful for the support of his family, LaCharlesla Edwards, and close friends whose faith in him as a person has never wavered,”

Deivanayagam said. “Lace also appreciates the thorough and complete investigation performed by law enforcement and is looking forward to f inally putting this behind him, finishing the basketball season, and graduating in May.” Waco Dunn police reports said officers were called to Hillcrest Hospital on Sept. 27 to investigate an assault on Edwards. Dunn was arrested after surrendering to authorities Oct. 5, when his suspension was announced by the team. Dunn was suspended academically Oct. 7. A Baylor disciplinary panel allowed him to return to class the following week after hearing evidence and determining that Dunn was “not guilty of assaulting a female which resulted in her jaw being broken,” according to a letter the Baylor University Judicial Affairs Disciplinary Committee sent to Deivanayagam then. “Lace would like to thank coach (Scott) Drew, the assistant coaches, and the entire athletic department along with Baylor University for their support,” Deivanayagam said.

Baylor officials referred to the attorney’s statement when a request was made for comment from Dunn, the second-leading scorer in the Big 12 (19.7 points per game) this season. He leads the league with 3.27 three-pointers a game. Going into Baylor’s final regular-season home game Saturday night against seventh-ranked Texas, Dunn has 2,252 career points and needs only five to surpass Texas Tech’s Andre Emmett as the Big 12 career scoring leader. He needs six three-pointers to break the league’s career mark in that category. Dunn was a second-team All-Big 12 pick last season when he averaged 19.6 points and 4.8 rebounds while the Bears set a school record with 28 victories and got within one win of making their first NCAA Final Four appearance in 60 years. Dunn, along with team leaders Tweety Carter and Ekpe Udoh, fell in the Elite Eight to eventual-champion Duke, 78-71, at Reliant Stadium in Houston. He set single-season school records for points (704), three-pointers (116) and free throw shooting percentage (85.7 on 126 of 147 free throws). Baylor (18-11, 7-8 Big 12) currently sits in seventh place in the Big 12 and is considered to be on the NCAA Tournament bubble.

Annie’s Mailbox

n’t come right out and said it, but I get the distinct impression that she doesn’t want me in her life anymore. I am at my wits’ end. She is over 30 and still acts like a def iant teenager.

you back, or she doesn’t want to. When she thinks of you, all that comes to mind is her guilt. By pushing you away, she also won’t have to part with that settlement money (if she ever gets it). Either chalk this up to a bad loan and let her know she’s off the hook, or insist on repayment and run the risk of an estrangement — whichever result is easier for you to live with.

Marcy Sugar and Kathy Mitchell

Dear Annie: A year ago, my husband and I lent my daughter some money to help with her mortgage payments, insurance, etc. She told us she would pay a certain amount each month until the loan was paid up or until she got the settlement she was waiting for. As I write this, she has not attempted to pay anything. When I bring it up, she yells, “You’ll get your money when I get mine!” She no longer answers the phone when I call, and when I text, she rarely responds. When she does, it is only to bring up things that happened in the past. She has-

National Geographic on the hunt for monsters The National Geographic Channel launches the new series “Beast Hunter” (8 p.m.). Host and all-around manly man Pat Spain embarks on trips around the globe in search of mythical monsters, like the Mongolian Death Worm, the Man Ape of Sumatra and something called the Sea Serpent of the North. Along the way, we see a lot of colorful scenery. Spain uses smatterings of the local language to determine whether anyone has seen the monster in quest i o n . It ’s a l l rat h e r b re a t h less and ridiculous. S pa i n s t u m bles upon some unintentional co m e dy in Su m a t ra wh e n he queries women working at a food market about the “short ape-like man” of legend. They giggle and suggest that his phrase describes just about all of the guys they know. At this point, Spain decides that he needs a better translator. Some may f ind these well-photographed snipe hunts entertaining, but I can’t help feeling rather sad at the fact that an institution as old and respected as National Geographic has thrown in the towel and joined in the tabloidization of television and the all-around assault on reason. Along similar lines, Travel Channel offers nine hours of “Ghost Adventure” (6 p.m. through 3 a.m., Travel).

Dear Annie: I’ve been married to “Sam” for 17 years. I have two grown daughters from my first marriage and a 16-year-old son with Sam. For all these years, Sam has been the quintessential stable husband and father, working to put a roof over our heads and food on the table. I, too, have worked the entire time. Sam’s disciplinary methods caused many problems in the early days of his stepparenting — with lots of threats of divorce — but we all survived, though not entirely unscathed. The problem is, I married Sam for his stability and now everything else about him is really getting on my nerves. With an almost-empty nest, I want to get back to the real me — the one who enjoys dinners out, concerts, dancing, travel, the great outdoors, intellectual stimulation, etc. Sam is a couch potato who’s overweight, diabetic and impotent. I can’t stop myself from imagining a better Mr. Right, which makes me open to the possibility of meeting someone else, and that jeopardizes my marriage. So, Annie, if this Mr. Right comes along, should I go? — Lucky but Not Happy

NBA Roundup The Associated Press

Magic 99, Heat 96 MIAMI — Another big lead, another big collapse. It’s becoming a trend for the Miami Heat — and one the Orlando Magic were more than thrilled to exploit Thursday night. Down by 24 points in the third quarter, the Magic went on an unbelievable 40-9 run over the next 15 minutes and stunned the Heat, the secondlargest comeback in Orlando franchise history and matching the second-biggest in the NBA this season. Jason Richardson scored 24 points for Orlando, 11 of them to kickstart the epic burst that turned a 73-49 deficit into an 89-82 lead. “Well, that defies explanation,” Magic coach Stan Van Gundy said. There’s only been six instances this season of a team taking a 22-point lead or more and losing. The Heat have been victimized that way twice, both times at home, the first against Utah in the season’s earliest stages. This one seemed to cut much deeper. “We’ve blown a lot of games where we were in full control,” Heat forward Chris Bosh said. “And we have to do something.” Jameer Nelson scored 12 of his 16 in the second half and Dwight Howard finished with 14 points and 18 rebounds for the Magic, who fell into the 24-point hole when LeBron James scored with 8:57 remaining in the third quarter. Orlando outscored Miami, 50-23, the rest of the way. “To do it on the road, that was an incredible win,” Van Gundy said. Said Dwyane Wade: “Mindboggling.” James and Wade combined for 47 points in the first half and outscored the Magic by two in the first 24 minutes. That was long forgotten by the end. “I’ve been a part of games like this one before, but this one is special,” said Richardson, who was 5-for-5 from three-point range after halftime. “We knew what they did to us last time. LeBron and DWade played at a superstar level in the first half. We just hung in there, battled, got some stops. It was huge getting a win here.” James scored 29 and Wade had 28 for Miami. Wade was 0-for-4 in the fourth, James 0-for-2. Combined in the second half, they were 3-for-13, all three makes by James. They were hardly

Ty Lawson scored 22 points, and Nene and Chris Andersen each added 13 to give the Nuggets their fifth win in six games the deal that sent Carmelo Anthony and Chauncey Billups to New York. The Jazz had an unlikely chance to send the game into overtime, but Andrei Kirilenko fumbled the ball away as the buzzer sounded.
