KU SOPHOMORES KRIS VELASCO, Wamego, and Hannah Bolton, St. Libory, Neb., are organizing The Big Event for March 31, when KU students will volunteer and perform odd jobs around the Lawrence community.

Students recruited to do volunteer projects across city By Andy Hyland

One of the hardest parts of organizing The Big Event at Kansas University, organizers say, has been convincing community members that it’s not some sort of scam. “There’s no catch,” Hannah Bolton, a sophomore from St. Libory, Neb., recalled telling a skeptic in a grocery store recently. On March 31, the plan calls for hordes of KU students to go out into the Lawrence community and do a whole variety of odd jobs for residents, businesses and other

Senators say arts decision was too hasty By Scott Rothschild

TOPEKA — Senate leaders say Gov. Sam Brownback’s order to abolish the Kansas Arts Commission may have been hastily made and there may be enough votes in the Senate to reject it. “His intentions were good,” Senate President Steve Morris, R-Hugoton, said of Brownback’s proposal. But Morris and Senate Majority Leader Jay Scott Emler, R-Lindsborg, said Brownback, also a Republican, had a short time frame

agency as a budgetary move has raised stiff opposition from across the state. The Arts Commission’s supporters said it is one of the state’s most notable success stories. It receives approximately $800,000 in state dollars and attracts more than $1.2 million in matching dollars that go to programs and services that reach every county in Kansas. Of those matching funds, the KAC receives $778,200 from the National EndowThe inner workings ment for the Arts and Brownback’s proposal to $437,767 from the Midabolish the small state America Arts Alliance. to make a lot of budget decisions while facing a $500 million revenue shortfall. Sworn into office Jan. 10 at the start of the 2011 legislative session, Brownback had 30 days under the Kansas Constitution to issue executive reorganization orders. That forces any new governor to make a lot of decisions in a hurry, Emler said. Brownback, he said, didn’t “necessarily have time to poll everybody to find out how viable those ideas are.”

Under Brownback’s executive reorganization order, the KAC would be abolished, and its duties would be transferred to the Kansas State Historical Society. A newly formed nonprofit, the Kansas Arts Foundation Inc., would provide the support to “ensure Kansas’ participation in federal and regional arts programs,” said Landon Fulmer, Brownback’s policy director. For the next fiscal year, the Historical Society would receive $200,000 in state funds as “seed” money to

The murder trial of a Kansas City, Kan., man is scheduled to begin this morning, nearly four years and f ive months after Lawrence hip-hop artist Anthony “Clacc” Vital’s body was found west of Lawrence. Durrell Jones, 26, faces a firstdegree murder charge for the shooting death of Vital. According to court records, prosecutors plan to have Jones’ co-defendant Major C. Edwards Jr., 31, of Lawrence, testify that Jones sold and provided drugs to Vital and that Vital owed Jones money Vital for those transactions. “Evidence of the defendant’s prior actions is necessary for the state to prove motive in the present case,” chief assistant district attorney David Melton wrote in a motion in the case. “It is also relevant to show the reason why the homicide occurred.” Edwards pleaded guilty in March 2010 to voluntary manslaughter for his role in Vital’s shooting death. Jones has fought the murder charge for several years, said his attorney John Kerns, who did not reveal anything about his defense tactics. “In my book it never makes good practice to talk about any of the specific details to start out,” Kerns said last week. Here is a look at major events in the case, which will be tried in Douglas County District Chief Judge Robert Fairchild’s courtroom:

Oct. 15, 2006 Douglas County sheriff’s officers are called when a property owner discovers a body in a field along U.S. Highway 40 about 2 miles west of Lawrence. Officers ultimately ruled it a homicide. In coming days, the body is identified as Vital, 28, Lawrence, who was a member of the local hip-hop group called Da Please see SENATORS, page 2A BombSquad. Friends and family



members described Vital as a hard-working artist and a “sweet, humble guy.”

Oct. 22, 2006 Sheriff ’s officers and others arrest Edwards, who was said to be out with Vital the night before Vital’s body was found, at a hotel in Verona, Miss. The arrest was based on a federal warrant for being a felon in possession of a firearm and ammunition. The federal charges linked Edwards to Vital’s murder, but he wasn’t charged in Douglas County with murder for two years, pending resolution of the federal case. December 2006 Three Lawrence residents were charged in Douglas County District Court in connection with the investigation, but none had yet been charged with the murder itself. Carlos R. “Smurf” Green later pleaded no contest to being a felon in possession of a firearm and explosive device and was sent to prison for a parole violation. James Neal Williams entered a plea to obstruction and was sentenced to serve 14 months in prison. Not all of the charges stuck. An obstruction charge was dismissed in 2007 against Audrey Ferguson, whom prosecutors accused of telling her roommate not to cooperate with officers. Jan. 18, 2008 Edwards pleads guilty in federal court to unlawful possession of a sawed-off shotgun and admits that on Aug. 11, 2006, he left the gun on the porch of a Lawrence residence and returned the next day to retrieve it and discovered it had been turned over to police. He later is sentenced to serve five years in federal prison. Please see TRIAL, page 2A

Zenger at home on the road on outreach tour By Andy Hyland

Kansas University’s new athletic director got a chance last week to make good on a promise he made during his introductory press conference — to get behind the wheel and meet new people. Sheahon Zenger said being from Kansas is almost like a religion to him, and he enjoyed the opportunity to revisit some familiar places. The trips are important to him, he said, because he gets to interact with new people. It’s something about the way he was

raised, he said, that makes him love being out with the people of the state. He rattled off the highways he traveled on the trip. Highway 148, Highway 119, Highway 9 and Highway 81. Roads he’s traveled “thousands of times,” he said. The trek started in Salina on Monday. Jordan Long is a server at Martinelli’s Little Italy, where Zenger met people. He was working on Monday, so he didn’t have a lot of time to hear everything that was going on, but he caught bits and pieces. “He talked to just about everybody,” Long said.

His travel plans underwent some late rearranging as Zenger made time to attend his wife’s aunt’s funeral on Tuesday in Greenleaf. Members of his staff met people in Great Bend and Dodge City. Zenger caught up with them in Garden City. He arrived in Hays late Tuesday, about 10:30 p.m., but decided to take some time to drive around, seeing the house his parents lived in when he was young

Robert V. Caffarelli Robert V. Caffarelli, 78, of Lawrence, KS (formerly of Olathe, KS & Omaha, NE) passed away peacefully on March 4, 2011, surrounded by his loving wife of 54 years, Nancy, and their children and grandchildren. Bob was born on November 12, 1932 in Norfolk, NE, and moved to Omaha, NE, as an infant. He graduated from Omaha Technical High School where he was Class President and a star football player and wrestler. Although slight in size, Bob was big in heart and determination; he was the starting nose guard for the 1949 state championship team and was inducted into the Nebraska State High School Athletic Hall of Fame in 2002. Bob served in the U.S. Navy and later in the Naval Reserves. Following the Navy, Bob married the love of his life, Nancy M. Wright, on October 12, 1957. He graduated from the University of Wisconsin School of Banking while beginning what would become a 35 year career in the banking industry. In 1975 Bob relocated with his family to Olathe, KS, where he joined the First National Bank of Olathe. In 1978 Bob was elected as an Olathe Committeemen (3rd Ward, 3rd Precinct), serving multiple terms and was a member of the Mayor’s Steering Council. He also was involved with numerous civic organizations including the Optimist Club, Olathe Chamber of Commerce (where he served as President for multiple terms), Board Member of the Greater Kansas City Chapter of the American Red Cross and Regional Chairman of the Southern Johnson County Chapter of the American Red Cross. Following his retirement from the banking industry, Bob began a second career as a residential real estate agent with what would eventually become Reece & Nichols. Bob enjoyed great success in his “retirement” earning numerous multimillion dollar volume awards selling real estate throughout much of the 1990s and 2000s. While Bob enjoyed a

long and successful business career, he was always quick to point out his greatest sense of pride Caffarelli was his family; he was passionate about spending time with family and would brag often of his children and grandchildren’s activities. Bob’s other interests included hunting, fishing and golf (he was a past member of Brookridge, Leawood South & Meadowbrook Country Clubs). By far, his biggest passion, aside from his family, was Nebraska Football; Bob was a season ticket holder since 1964 and was looking forward to another season. Bob was also very involved with his church, Heritage Presbyterian in Olathe, KS where he was a founding member and served as an elder, treasurer and lector. Bob is survived by his loving wife, Nancy; his daughter, Nancy Rhodes of Lawrence KS; son Robert A. Caffarelli (married to Laureen Moore Caffarelli) of Lee’s Summit, MO; his granddaughter, Melissa Mourek (married to Mike Mourek) of Ottawa, KS; grandson, Nicholas D. Dannevik (married to Haley Bowlin-Dannevik) of Lawrence, KS; grandchildren, Callahan & Brogan Caffarelli (children to Robert & Laureen) of Lee’s Summit, MO and greatgrandchildren, Porter & Reese (children to Nicholas & Haley Dannevik) of Lawrence, KS. Visitation will be held from 5 to 7:00 p.m. on Thursday, March 10th, at Heritage Presbyterian Church, 15550 S. Blackbob Road, Olathe, KS. A memorial service will be held at Heritage Presbyterian at 11:00 a.m. on Friday, March 11th.

numerous questions about Brownback’s executive order and about how the proposed new system would work. For example, one question was, “How will the NEA be assured of appropriate oversight if the duties of the former state arts agency are transferred to the State Historical Society and yet the funding is simply passed through this designated state agency to a separate nonprofit entity with different staff, separate by-laws and a separate board?”

Rural support for KAC Many rural residents have voiced support for the KAC, saying it provides the leadership, organizational assistance and funding needed for the cultural enrichment that that they otherwise would not have. “Without the KAC, a great many smaller, rural communities will suffer and the delineation between rural and urban and `haves’ and `have nots’ will grow,” said Brenda Meder, executive director of the Hays Arts Council. Over the past six years, the KAC has contributed more than $30,000 and provided strategic assistance to help the annual Symphony in the Flint Hills. The symphony has attracted more than 45,000 people over the years and has become a top arts event in the state. “The Kansas Arts Commission imprimatur proclaims to the public that the event is held to a high standard and is worthy of taxpayer support,” said Cathy Hoy, board member of the Symphony in the Hills Inc. Last week, the Senate Federal and State Affairs Committee approved a resolution that disapproves of Brownback’s executive order. The next step of the fight will now go to the full Senate. State Sen. Roger Reitz, RManhattan, who has been leading the charge to preserve the KAC, said Brownback’s plan is “not a feasible or prudent alternative.” — Statehouse reporter Scott Rothschild can be reached at 785-423-0668.

March 19, 2010 Edwards enters a guilty plea to a lesser charge of voluntary manslaughter for Vital’s death. He has not yet been sentenced in the case, and both Edwards and Jones have remained in custody in the Douglas County Jail. The trial for Jones has been delayed several times because one of his attorneys moved out of state and another one closed his law practice before Kerns was appointed. Jury coordinator Karen Curl said court officials have summoned a slightly larger pool of prospective jurors than normal for the case. About 70 Douglas County residents have been called for jury selection at 9 a.m. this morning, she said. — Reporter George Diepenbrock can be reached at 832-7144.

Summit to educate public on LGBT issues

Official: Muslims not terrorism problem

By Christine Metz

Muslim Americans are not part of the terrorism problem facing the U.S. — they are part of the solution, a top White House official said Sunday at a Washington-area mosque. Deputy National Security Adviser Denis McDonough set the Obama administration’s tone for discussions as tensions escalate before the first in a series of congressional hearings on Islamic radicalization. The hearings, chaired by New York Republican Peter King, will focus on the level of cooperation from the Muslim community to help law enforcement combat radicalization. The majority of the recent terror plots and attempts against the U.S. have involved people espousing a radical and violent view of Islam. 2 | HAWAII

Scientists monitoring lava eruption A new vent has opened at one of the world’s most active volcanoes, sending lava shooting up to 65 feet high, scientists at Kilauea volcano said Sunday. The Hawaiian Volcano Observatory said the fissure eruption was spotted shortly after the floor at the Pu’u O’o crater collapsed around 5 p.m. Saturday. It occurred along the middle of Kilauea’s east rift zone, about 2 miles west of Pu’u O’o. Kilauea has been in constant eruption since Jan. 3, 1983. At the summit, lava receded rapidly late Saturday but seemed to slow Sunday. There were also about 150 small earthquakes were recorded within Kilauea in the past 24 hours. Scientists said areas near the vent could erupt or collapse without warning, posing a threat to visitors or hikers to the area. Also potentially lethal concentrations of sulfur dioxide gas could be present within about a half-mile downwind of vent areas. 3 | LONDON

Prince Andrew, royal family face woes As Buckingham Palace prepares to celebrate the wedding of Prince William, officials are rushing to contain a flurry of negative publicity from the side of the family that has long been a source of embarrassment. Prince Andrew, the queen’s second son, is friends with a convicted sex offender. He has also been accused of having close ties to Moammar Gadhafi’s regime in Libya. And his hosting of the son of the Tunisian dictator, shortly before a popular uprising drove him from power, have all led to calls for the Duke of York to be stripped of his role as special U.K. trade ambassador. British officials have rallied to the royal’s defense, with the foreign secretary expressing his “confidence” in Andrew and a U.K. trade official voicing support for the prince to remain in the position, saying Sunday he does a “very valuable job.”

In the hopes of giving a greater voice to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender issues, a local group will hold a summit this election season. The f irst of its kind in Lawrence, the LGBT Summit will bring together members of the LGBT community, school board and City Commission candidates, and others interested in LGBT issues. “We’ve never taken a proactive approach to getting our voice out there in the community,” said Scott Criqui, vice-chair of the

Lawrence/Douglas County Chapter of the Kansas Equality Coalition. “With the coming election, it would be great if candidates could see, here is our voice and here is what is important to us.” Sponsored by the local Kansas Equality Coalition chapter, the summit will be held from 7 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. March 29 at Maceli’s, 1031 N.H. On tap for discussion will be the goal of convincing city of Lawrence leaders to include gender identity in its anti-discrimination policy. Such an effort failed in 2010 when the city’s Human Relations Commission voted against the measure.

From behind his computer screen at Lawrence Memorial Hospital, Tyler Palmer spends his days seeking out effectiveness, efficiency and clear lines of communication for hooking the main campus up with nearly a dozen associated clinics, doctors’ offices and other operations. Now he’d like to extend his connective expertise to a new field: education, as a member of the Lawrence school board. “I think I can make a difference,” said Palmer, a network engineer. “My jobs for the past 15 years — whether doing software or networking or whatever it happens to be — have been

The summit also will be a chance for LGBT people to learn about steps they can take if they are feeling bullied or discriminated against. While cities throughout the country have held similar summits, Criqui said he knows of just one other city in Kansas — Manhattan — that has held a summit like this. He hopes that will change. “Lawrence is a lot more accepting than other communities,” Criqui said. “Our hope is to be a role model with this event.”

The commission’s reluctance to change the policy spurred a conversation that a summit was needed. “How do we educate the community, and specifically community leaders, on LGBT issues to give them more of a scope on what the LGBT community is here?” Criqui said. The answer was to host a summit. The summit will also look at school bullying and the positive effects an inclusive community can have on mental health and economic development. Along with speakers, a candidate mixer will be held.

working with computer systems, doing analysis of complex systems and using all the data I’ve gathered to come up with the best solution for any given situation. “As a weak analogy, it applies to the situation of the board and the district: a complex system, with many moving parts and variables you need to deal with. And I think I’m uniquely qualified to do that.” Palmer, 38, is one of nine candidates campaigning for four available seats on the Lawrence school board. The general election is April 5, with winners to start their four-year terms in July. When deciding whether to

TYLER PALMER is one of nine candidates campaigning for a seat on the Lawrence school board. He said he would like to see more clear lines of communication among the Lawrence school board. Although his background isn’t in education, Palmer said his outsider perspective could be advantageous. See a Please see SCHOOL, page 5A video at

Students in a Lawrence High School architecture class came up with the plan. Students in a construction class will handle some of the demolition. Perhaps students in the newspaper class will write a story. In any case, students in architecture, small-engine studies and newspaper classes will get new meeting and working spaces — and plenty of hands-on experience — as part of a classroom renovation project approved last week by members of the Lawrence school board. The project will divide Room 157, now covering 3,500 square feet, into three separate spaces at the southwestern end of the school. In approving the plan, board members agreed to hire B.A. Green, for $34,359, to handle specific work that requires expertise meeting certain requirements outlined in the Uniform Fire Code.

Much of the job, however, will be handled by district professionals using district tools and district materials — with assistance from students studying construction, all working off plans devised by members of the architecture class. “That’s really cool that we’re using students’ expertise,” said Vanessa Sanburn, board member. Actually drawing up the plans was Matt Germain, a student in the architecture class, with guidance and approval from Gould Evans Associates, the district’s architect. Such involvement is a lesson in both education and efficiency. “When the walls are being wired for outlets, our electricians will be working with the students and training them,” said Frank Harwood, the district’s chief operations officer. “The good news is not only do the students get the experience, but we don’t have to pay them for it.”

What happened to the BP gas station just south of Ninth and Iowa streets? It appears to be closed down and not open for business.


A spokesman with Haag Oil Co., which owns the station, confirmed that the station has closed. But the spokesman said the company is finalizing a deal to sell the station to another gas station operator. Haag Oil didn’t release the name of that company.

INJURY ACCIDENT • A man involved in a singlevehicle rollover accident Sunday afternoon northeast of Lawrence was taken by air ambulance to a Kansas Cityarea hospital. According to a witness who arrived at the scene shortly after the accident, emergency crews worked to free the man, who was stuck in an overturned pickup truck on Kansas Highway 32, near the intersection of U.S. Highway 24-40 in northeast Douglas County. Emergency dispatchers received the call about the accident around 3:15 p.m. Additional information regarding the accident and the patient’s injuries was unavailable Sunday night.

adding that having former KU football great Gale Sayers in attendance might have helped draw people, too. Augustine talked to Zenger and said he was struck by how the A.D. seemed to take a genuine interest in his life and his family’s. Yes, he had a daughter. Yes, she’ll be attending KU soon. No, she doesn’t play any sports, but she is a cheerleader. No, she doesn’t want to cheer for KU because she’s afraid it might interfere with her studies. Yes, she’s majoring in pharmacy. Yes, that’s rigorous enough that it just might prevent her from having enough time to devote to cheerleading. “He wasn’t just asking to ask,” Augustine said. “Most people when you talk about your kids, their eyes glaze over. They’re just asking to ask.” Zenger said they then “made a beeline for Hutch” and did another event Wednesday afternoon before making it back to Lawrence for the men’s basketball game

against Texas A&M. His connections to the state have been well publicized. Salina was home, he said, because he was born there. Hays was home because he grew up there. Zenger seemed to relish small details of the trip — the hills near Clifton. The bluffs near Larned. And remembering that he had to accelerate as he drove into Garden City, to make it up the small hill. He typically would give a short speech and would then spend time answering questions and would greet people individually. “It’s somewhat arrogant to think you can go and deliver a speech and answer all their questions in a speech,” Zenger said. Once in a while, the Kansas Athletics ticket scandal would be brought up but not very often, said Zenger and others who were at the events. He addressed the questions and said that they’re focused on moving forward. Audience members seemed more interested in his priorities, his approach in the athletic department and facilities improvements. Marla Eriksen lives in Hutchinson and serves as a coordinator for KU Alumni

Association events in Reno County. She said that fundraising and money never came up in Hutchinson but that she felt his approach should make that easier later. “He just kind of seemed like one of us,” she said. “Very professional, down-to-earth.” He and his staff tried to stay and answer everyone’s questions, Zenger said. “Unless you have to be at the next event, we’re going to be the last ones out of there,” he said. He was helped on his trip by the KU Alumni Association, which he said had been “out plowing the f ield. Williams Fund staffers had been in the area before, too, so the staff weren’t strangers.” And he doesn’t think he’s done now. He’ll be back, he told the audiences. “This isn’t a one-time thing,” he said. — Higher education reporter Andy Hyland can be reached at 832-6388. Follow him on Twitter at

run for office, Palmer ran the data through his mind and liked what came back, despite what some may consider an unconventional foundation. Palmer is single, with no children, and has not spent any real time in or around a public elementary or secondary schools since he graduated from Salina Central High School back in 1991. Others may have participated in PTOs, or supported bond issues, or served on committees or on task forces or as actual board members, but Palmer embraces his role as something of an educational outsider. “I see it as both as advantage and a disadvantage,” he said. “I don’t have a kid in the district. I’m not I don’t have privy to a kid in the the dayto-day district. I’m things not privy to going on the day-to-day in a school. things going on in a school. But, at the same But, at the time, I can same time, I take a step back and can take a at step back and look things look at things through a broader through a perspecbroader tive. … perspective. “I don’t have an ax — Tyler Palmer, school to grind. I want to board candidate gather all the information I can from all sources so I can make the best decision for all our students.”

Life lessons Perhaps Palmer picked up the analytical approach early on. He remembers how he and a few classmates, late in their elementary school years, had found themselves well ahead in their math lessons. And seeing no reason to stop, he said: “We asked our teacher: Can we go ahead and finish off the book? She said, ‘Yeah, go ahead.’ ” Such accelerated thinking led him to earn two undergraduate degrees — psychology and premedicine — at Kansas State University, where he spent two years as a percussionist in the marching band. He went on to earn a master’s degree in computer science at Kansas University in 2001. Next stop: Synergy Technology, a software startup in Tulsa, Okla., creating “collaboration and communication” applications for companies ranging from 10-employee operations to multinational corporations, including WalMart. It was there, starting as a software developer, that he quickly branched out into systems administration, marketing, network administration, business strategy and all those other roles that led “dot-coms” of the era to become the next big thing. Or not. “Making all the stars align can sometimes be a tough task,” he said, of the firm where he’d started as the fifth employee, watched it grow into 25, then slip back to five at the end. “Sometimes you win, sometimes you don’t.” Setting goals When it comes to schools, Palmer wants to improve communication among the board, district administrators and teachers — and to foster more collaborations between teachers and different schools. That should help lead to improved test scores for students, he said. Curriculum also needs to become more standardized and uniform districtwide so that students moving from school to school or even up from grade to grade can avoid “limbo” that results when past work doesn’t sync with new expectations. The district also must create a serious long-range plan, instead of going “from crisis to crisis” each year, Palmer said. The goal would be to establish priorities for programs, activities and even schools so that if and when budget cuts need to be made — like this year — the community can start its conversation from a common foundation. “Then we know where we’re going and how we want to get there,” he said. — Schools reporter Mark Fagan can be reached at 832-7188.


a citizen. My people weren’t given the choice of staying.” His sentiment is echoed by the descendants of other tribes.


Even our state owes its name to the Kanza Indians, known as “People of the South Wind.” It was 17th-century French mapmakers who named the territory after the Kanza or Kaw people. Many of our trails and highways — the Santa Fe, the Chisholm, the Cherokee — originated with tribes searching for the quickest routes. Explore the back roads and look closely on sandstone bluffs at the drawings — of teepees and stars, deer and bison — centuries after they were etched; walk in fields and see the pottery shards and arrowheads. After more than 15 decades of pioneers plowing the prairie and building cities, the Native American mounds and sacred places of the first civilizations of Kansas have not been destroyed. “We are still here. The first people of Kansas, the people who gave Kansas its name, we are still strong and growing stronger all the time,” said Jim Pepper Henry, a Kaw tribal member who has spent his career specializing in indigenous tribe historic preservation. He is director of the Anchorage Museum in Alaska. “Wherever we live in the world, we are the f irst Kansans,” Pepper Henry said. “It is in my blood. My roots are in Kansas. I am always going to be a Kansan, though I have never lived in Kansas as

Hunters, gatherers, farmers Researchers estimate more than 15,000 archaeological sites have been documented in Kansas — the vast majority Native American. “People have been here since the end of the Ice Age, over 11,000 years,” said Bob Hoard, state archaeologist. When most people think of American Indians, they think of them mounted on horses. That didn’t happen until about 1500, and only after the arrival of Spanish conquistadors, Hoard said. Even the bow and arrow are recent, developed about 2,000 years ago. “Most of the early people lived solely off of wild foods that they hunted and gathered,” Hoard said. They lived quietly and with little impact to the land compared with the buffalo hunters and homesteaders that would follow. Sacred places Early tribes believed that some places were more sacred than others, where human beings and the supernatural mingled, according to Don Blakeslee, a professor of anthropology at Wichita State University. Blakeslee has spent much of his career researching Native American sacred sites throughout the Midwest. One of those places is Waconda Springs in Mitchell County near Glen Elder, where Native American

tribes believed God created a fountain of mystic medicine and the spirit of the sun. The Pawnee, Wichita, Kaw, Potawatomi, Crow and other tribes are known to have visited the springs. The water was sacred and open to any group, friendly or not, Blakeslee said. The large majority of sacred sites were destroyed with European settlement, but some survived, although sometimes altered. Pawnee Rock near Larned, some historians believe, was where Indian tribes such as the Arapaho, Kiowa, Comanche and Cheyenne gathered for councils of war and peace. The rock soared more than 150 feet above the prairie and proved to be a lookout point for tribes to spot buffalo herds and approaching wagon trains along the Santa Fe Trail. Pawnee Rock was quarried away by early settlers. Much of its Dakota sandstone was used to build the Santa Fe Railroad and area buildings. Almost anywhere you go,
























Voices of Kansas Although most Native American tribes were forced out of Kansas in the late 19th century, the state today recognizes four tribes with land: the Iowa Tribe of Kansas and Nebraska, the Prairie Band of Potawatomi Nation, the Kickapoo Tribe in Kansas and the Sac and Fox Nation. All are located in eastern Kansas. But for those tribes the military forced to leave in the late 19th century and move into Indian Territory — now Oklahoma — some of those wounds

run deep a century later. Some were nearly decimated. The Pawnee went from a population of nearly 30,000 to 600 in a 70-year period, said Richard Gould, site curator at the Pawnee Indian Village near Republic. That’s why it is so important to maintain a Native American presence in Kansas, Pepper Henry said. Some Native Americans view Kansas today with mixed feelings. But without a doubt, the Native American influence is still here. — Reach Beccy Tanner at 316-268-6336 or

LAWRENCE JOURNAL-WORLD ● ● Monday, March 7, 2011



Review is due It’s time to take another look at the Lawrence school district’s collaboration and early dismissal policy.


awrence school board members deserve our thanks. Probably no group in the community will have more difficult and controversial discussions over the next year as the board will on budget cuts, possible school closings and consolidations. But board members really ought to add one more difficult discussion to their list. Now is the time to seriously consider the value of the district’s policy on teacher collaboration time, which includes releasing elementary and junior high students 90 minutes early each Wednesday. Budget concerns are evident throughout the school district. Those concerns should prompt district leaders to evaluate this program, because — make no mistake — collaboration time comes at a price. What that price is, we’re unsure. Many residents don’t know much about the program, and that’s a problem. The policy was established in the late 1990s as part of negotiations between the school district and its teachers. The idea of early-release was never properly explained to the public. School board members ought to fix that by answering several questions: ● Are teachers being productive during collaboration time? As one teacher who supports the program recently wrote in a letter to the Journal-World, some teachers probably use the time better than others. What percentage of teachers are using the time properly? ● Could the district save money by eliminating the early-release program? Students are required to attend school a certain number of hours per year. How many extra days are added to the school calendar every year because students are released early every Wednesday? In Eudora, district administrators added minutes onto their district school day and were able to cut 10 days from the district’s calendar. Cutting those days saved the district about $100,000 in transportation, food services, utilities and other costs. Eudora has only one junior high and one elementary school. Lawrence has 15 elementary schools and four junior highs. ● Do the benefits of collaboration time outweigh the costs the program creates for parents? It is a simple fact that many parents have to pay for day care on early-release Wednesdays or else lose hours at work. The economic times are much different than they were in the late 1990s when this program began. Are parents being asked to pay too much for this program? ● Could collaboration time be reduced or perhaps done at a different time of day? Perhaps teachers could have collaboration time once per month. If it is needed on a weekly basis, perhaps teachers could collaborate in the afternoons following the normal dismissal of school. Any changes to the district’s collaboration time are likely to produce concerns from the Lawrence teachers union. Making a change could be difficult. But that’s just a sign of the times. Nothing has come easy lately, but school board members owe it to the community to make sure this issue is on the table as they chart a future course for the district.

Indiana gov. having political moment Politics has its moments, and right now Mitch Daniels is having his. Daniels is a former top executive at Eli Lilly and Co., a onetime director of the federal Office of Management and Budget, the current governor of Indiana and a possible Republican candidate for president. He is having a good winter, in the way some decorated British heroes between 1939 and 1945 had a good war that prepared them for a fast track in politics and business. Nobody, including Daniels, knows whether he actually is going to run for president and nobody, especially Daniels, knows whether he will be a sensation or a dud if he decides to do so. Some politicians hear the siren song only to discover that it’s not playing their tune (you can ask President Pete Wilson or President Fred Thompson). Some politicians heed the call and find that presidential politics is truly their calling (the best recent example is President Ronald Reagan, though his first two tries were debacles). But right now a lot of smart people think that Daniels — a cost-cutter who seems to have the vision of an actuary grafted onto the character of a biker — is the man to take on Barack Obama, the mountain of federal debt, the looming Social Security and Medicare crises, and just about everything short of a potential NFL labor impasse, which, by the way, would be a disaster for Indiana, its Colts being an engine of the state economy. The other day the cerebral David Brooks of The New York Times called Daniels “the man who would be the (Republican)

David Shribman Maybe Daniels, whose “greatest asset is that he is normal, is what the Republicans need.”

party’s strongest candidate for the presidency” and lamented that he might not run. This sort of thing brings to mind the way Republicans (and some Democrats) longed for Dwight Eisenhower to join the presidential ticket in 1952. The question for any politician is how to make the best use of his moment. Rep. Richard Gephardt, the Missouri Democrat, made his own moment in 1987 when he intruded on the serenity of the week between Christmas and New Year’s Day with a barrage of effective television ads about the threat of foreign imports. He rode that to a victory in the Iowa caucuses in early 1988. But Gephardt’s moment came on the eve of actual caucusing. Daniels’ moment comes on the eve of, well, the Big East men’s basketball tournament in New York, not ordinarily known as an important milestone on the way to the White House. So what’s a governor of Indiana to do?

Daniels has already told the big annual convention of conservatives that nothing matters so much as the deficit and entitlements. And he’s already told Republicans they’ve gone too far with the cultural wars on social issues — which means he’s already had yet another kind of moment, a Sister Souljah moment, long before many people have started to pay attention. A Sister Souljah moment? That’s when a politician tells his best friends, or potential supporters, to buzz off and quiet down. It derives from Gov. Bill Clinton’s (altogether calculated but nonetheless brilliant) 1992 repudiation of the hiphop artist who suggested killing white people. Daniels also used his SS moment to signal that he was a centrist, not an extremist. The man may have views congenial to the NRA, but he has the soul of a CPA. His radio isn’t constantly tuned to conservative talk radio and Rush Limbaugh’s fellow travelers. More than the Democratic Party, the Republican Party is a constantly changing organism, with a constantly shifting profile. Maybe Daniels, whose greatest asset is that he is normal, is what the Republicans need. Meanwhile, President Obama is channeling Harry Truman, who lost both houses of Congress in 1946 and then checked in with a 36 percent approval rating the spring before the 1948 election. Obama’s record is actually better than that at the moment; he lost only one house of Congress, and his approval rating in the RealClearPolitics running average checks in at just above 49 percent.

pared to Truman, Obama is a giant. A giant — but one with giant problems. Some are overseas (the Middle East is remaking itself) and some are in his own administration (the Middle East is remaking itself with America largely on the sidelines). Most are in the counting house (the economy is a mess and is only going to get worse unless the debt and social-welfare entitlements are brought under control). As a potential Obama opponent, Daniels is a zealot but not possessed of a martyr’s death wish. With rebellions against public-employee unions raging in Wisconsin and Ohio, Daniels urged Republican lawmakers to back away from a right-to-work bill for Indiana. He wasn’t amused that Democratic legislators, ripping a page from the Wisconsin playbook, decamped to Illinois, but he had bigger issues in mind. That is very Daniels; he knows how to look beyond the spectacle and the tactics to see the bigger picture and fashion a strategy. Obama mastered that on the campaign stump, but not at the White House podium. Only twice since 1936 has Daniels’ state sent its electoral votes to the Democrats. The first time was in the 1964 Lyndon Johnson landslide. The other time was in Obama’s 2008 triumph — and then by only one percentage point. Indiana is no swing state, except perhaps now. It has contributed only one president, Benjamin Harrison. Is this Daniels boomlet a real moment — or a momentary mood? Much depends on the answer. — David Shribman is executive editor of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.



From the Lawrence Daily JournalWorld for March 7, 1911: "HIGH SCHOOL NOTES. — Since the opera house fire, the seniors YEARS have lost the place where the comAGO mencements have been held. The IN 1911 commencement this year will probably be held in the Congregational church.... Why can't the Lawrence high school put out an annual that would do credit to a school of its size? For several years the Budget staff has at the end of each year issued a commencement number, but a high school with the enrollment we have, surely could afford an annual. Many such enterprises have failed hitherto because of a number who did not feel able to afford the price. This could easily be remedied. The students could put on a play or entertainment that would pay a share of the expenses and also cut down the price of the copy.” — Compiled by Sarah St. John

Inaccuracy feeds disconnect with reality A few words about three words. Said words came from one Barry Ritholtz, a financial analyst, author and TV commentator who, according to his website, has contributed commentary on matters monetary to the whole alphabet soup of TV news: CNBC, CNN, ABC, CBS, PBS, Fox, MSNBC and C/SPAN. Ritholtz also has a blog and it was there that he recently broke what seemed a major news story: “Roger Ailes To Be Indicted.” Ailes, as you may know, is the controversial chairman of Fox News. The New York Times, citing papers filed in a lawsuit, had reported that Ailes stood accused of telling publishing potentate Judith Regan to lie to federal investigators vetting former New York Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik when he was nominated in 2004 to head the Department of Homeland Security. Kerik’s nomination ended in scandal; he is serving a four-year sentence on eight felony convictions, including tax fraud. Ritholtz took the story significantly further than the Times did. Citing “someone I spoke

Leonard Pitts Jr.

with,” he reported that Ailes was facing not just an accusation, but a federal indictment. “You read it here first,” he crowed. The sensational story ricocheted all over the Internet. But was it true? questioned Ritholtz on his source, whom he would identify only as an older man, “an upper East Side Democrat” he found himself sitting next to at an airport. That’s hardly a ringing endorsement for the source’s credibility, but Ritholtz was unfazed. Salon quotes him as saying, “If it’s true we’ll find out. If it’s not, no big deal.” And here, let us define what the point is not. It is not the likeability or lack thereof, of Roger Ailes. It is not the bias of the supposed news organiza-



tion he runs. It is not even the accuracy of Ritholtz’s report. It is, rather, those three words: “no big deal.” Lord, where is Walter Cronkite when you need him? Those who work in or depend upon mainstream media, traditional media, legacy media — choose your preferred synonym for “old” — are frequently and forcefully reminded that technology has changed the rules, broken the model. What was once a monologue is now a dialogue, the gathering and dissemination of news has become a communal activity. We are, goes the mantra, all journalists now. Fine. Wonderful. Whatever. But: If we are all journalists, we all ought to be governed by journalism’s most sacred directive. Meaning accuracy. Get the facts straight. One encounters little fealty to that directive in surveying the landscape of new media, overrun as it is by true believers for whom accuracy is subordinate to ideology and facts useful only to the degree they can be bent, shaped or outright disregarded in service to that ideology. The result, as many

have noted, is a political discourse distinguished by increasing incoherence and intellectual incontinence, an empty shouting match better suited to a fifth-grade schoolyard than to adults analyzing the great issues of the day. Even by that standard, Ritholtz’s breezy kiss-off to accuracy represents a minor milestone. He is not, after all, the proverbial blogger working in his pajamas from his mother’s basement. Rather, he is an accomplished, authoritative man. Yet even he apparently feels no particular obligation to be factual. No big deal? One can imagine a libel lawyer in the employ of Roger Ailes someday having a field day with that quote. Meantime, let the rest of us regard it as a signpost on the road toward America’s secession from objective reality. What is at stake is nothing less than our ability to know. From that springs our ability to process, extrapolate, debate, reason, conclude. We are losing those things. And that’s a very big deal, indeed. — Leonard Pitts a columnist for the Miami Herald.

Tom Keegan

Robinson return uplifting If Thomas Robinson played every game against Missouri the way he played Saturday in Columbia, Mo., basketball fans here in Lawrence might commission local sculptor Jim Brothers to build a life-size statue of the power forward, in which case there would be two Thomas Robinson statues in town: one that runs, jumps, dunks, talks and smiles, one that doesn’t. Of all the encouraging signs in Saturday’s victory, seeing the Adonis of the Big 12 back at full strength for the first time since undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery to repair a torn meniscus ranks right near the top. Robinson’s name didn’t make it onto either the first or second All-Big 12 teams, as voted by coaches, released Sunday, but he gave a glimpse Saturday of why it surely will next season. In just 17 minutes of action, Robinson hustled and muscled his way to 15 points and 13 rebounds. He’s averaging 17.6 rebounds per 40 minutes and is the perfect person to spell one Morris twin while playing alongside the other. Whereas the twins outfox front-court foes with their brilliant basketball minds that enable them to read the situation and make the right move, the correct shot, the smart pass, Robinson beats them with brute strength, explosive athleticism and improving footwork. By the time Robinson checks into the game, fatigue has set in on the big men who have tried keeping up with the twins. He’s not perfect. Some of the shots Robinson takes from the outside will be wise ones a year from now, but as a sophomore, he’s wise to do most of his work near the basket, and on most nights that’s what he does. “Run the floor, rebound, seal, get easy shots,” Robinson said of his responsibilities. “It’s much easier. I don’t have that much to do. If someone tells you you can make a living off rebounding and getting easy buckets, why not do it?” Paul Silas, Bill Bridges, Buck Williams and Dennis Rodman, to name a few, made nice livings doing so. Plenty of pros have set themselves up nicely by hitting the boards with the sort of commitment Robinson brings. “Hopefully, I can be one of them,” Robinson said, flashing his smile. Despite all the tragedy that has hit him this year at such a young age, Robinson never seems to go long between smiles. He’s an upbeat, personable guy. Seeing all he’s been through should give any teammate who would allow a lack of playing time, a slump, girlfriend problems, whatever, bring him down a reality check that brings him back into good spirits. Robinson wants to become a polished, complete basketball player before he thinks about playing for pay. He wants to develop the sort of inside-outside game Marcus and Markieff Morris bring to the game. He said he enjoys watching Amar’e Stoudemire and Carmelo Anthony more than any other NBA players. He’s not there yet, but he’s back to full strength, which gives Kansas one of the nation’s most intimidating sixth men.

Self named Coach of Year again … By Gary Bedore

Bill Self, who has led Kansas University, Illinois and Tulsa to 11 regular-season conference championships in the last 13 years, on Sunday was named Big 12 Coach of the Year by his peers — the league’s coaches. “It’s been a pretty good run,” said a humble Self, referring, of course, to the league crowns, not his three Big 12 Coach of the Year trophies in eight years at KU as well as one Western Athletic Conference top-coaching honor. “The biggest thing is, we’ve got good players. It is something etched in our minds, that this is what we’ve got to do. Every year we prepare to be this (champs),” added Self, who has led KU to seven straight conference titles

after a runner-up finish in his first year in Lawrence. “When that season is over, we switch our focus to the most important season, the postseason. We’ve always thought you can’t get ahead of yourself.” Self — he likes to say “we” rather than “I” — gave a glimpse into his personality when told after Saturday’s victory at Missouri he was a lock to be tapped coach of the year. “I don’t care about that,” Self said. “Our staff has done a good job. The thing for us, you’ve got to get your team playing its best right now. The fun just starts. The coaching and playing to me is just now starting.

If Bill Self could have, he would have voted for Kansas University junior Marcus Morris as Big 12 Player of the Year. “Oh, absolutely, but I can’t. I’ve got to vote for somebody else, but to me ... best player on the best team,” Self said in tossing his support to Morris, who Sunday was indeed named the conference’s top player in a vote of league coaches. Self, who didn’t reveal his choice in a competition where coaches are not allowed to vote for their own players, gives a thumbs-up to the selection of the 6-foot-9, 235-pound Morris. He has averaged 17.3 points and 7.0 rebounds overall, 18.8 points and 7.6 boards off 60.6 percent shooting in league play.

K-State potential roadblock Editor’s note: The following is part of an entry from Eric Sorrentino’s Conference Chatter blog, which follows trends in the Big 12, on A glance at this year’s Big 12 tournament bracket triggered the following thoughts regarding the path to the championship at Sprint Center in Kansas City, Mo: ● If I’m a Kansas University fan, I’m looking at the bracket thinking Texas has an easier path to the title game. Which team would you rather face in the semifinals, No. 3

Texas A&M or No. 4 Kansas State? Kansas would beat Texas A&M in Kansas City nine out of 10 times. That’s reality. A&M coach Mark Turgeon has never

beaten KU, and the Jayhawks are 17-1 in the Big 12 era against the Aggies. K-State, conversely, is on a rampage right now, winner of eight of its last nine games and six straight. The Wildcats, after struggling early in the season, jumped to a No. 4 seed and would face the Jayhawks in the semifinals if both teams take care of business (KU against Nebraska/Oklahoma State; KState against Colorado/Iowa State).

“I don’t think anybody putting up those kind of numbers (nationally) has been as unselfish as Marcus,” Self said of KU’s sixth Big 12 Player of the Year and first since Wayne Simien in 2004-05. Others: Raef LaFrentz (1996, 1997), Drew Gooden (2002) and Nick Collison (2003). Of the award, Morris said: “It’s a great accomplishment, but it’s not just me. I think we should get player of the year for everybody on our team.” Marcus’ brother, Markieff, was named second-team all-league. Also, Brady Morningstar and Tyrel Reed were named honorable mention. Morningstar was also named to the league’s alldefensive team. “I wouldn’t be able to get it without those guys,” Marcus said. Please see MARCUS, page 3B

Royals knock around Buehrle in win G L E N D A L E , A R I Z . ( AP ) — Mike Aviles knew Mark Buehrle wasn’t as sharp as he would be in the regular season. He didn’t mind. Aviles doubled, singled twice and scored two runs as the Kansas City Royals beat the Chicago White Sox, 8-3, Sunday. The Royals had 17 hits, seven for extra bases. They tagged Buehrle for five runs and nine hits in three innings. “It’s spring. He was throwing more balls over the heart of the plate, which is not him,” Aviles said. “Normally he’s on the cor-

ners, but he was leaving a couple balls up.” Clint Robinson had two RBI singles for Kansas City, prompting starter Luke Hochevar to offer his offense a proposition. “I’ll take them to dinner every night if we’re scoring runs like that in the regular season,” he said. In the mix for the opening-day start, Hochevar allowed three hits and one run in three innings of work. He allowed four hits and a run in two innings in his spring debut last week. “I was a lot sharper than my first time, especially with my command

on my off-speed stuff,” he said. “I felt good enough to go another (inning), which is a good sign this early.” Buehrle dodged a scare in the third inning when his defensive prowess was put to the test. Lorenzo Cain’s line drive headed right for Buehrle, but the two-time defending Gold Glove winner caught it. “I was just getting out of the way, and it went in my glove. It was just reaction,” Buehrle said. “Hopefully it got on TV so I don’t have to make another play the rest of the year.”

NATIONAL BRIEFS Sabbatini wins Honda; Woodland 6th PALM BEACH GARDENS, FLA. — Rory Sabbatini began the day with a big lead, turned back a challenge on the back nine and shot an even-par 70 Sunday for a one-stroke victory in the Honda Classic. Sabbatini sank a twofoot par putt on No. 18 to finish at 9-under 271. He earned his first PGA Tour title since the 2009 Byron Nelson Championship and sixth overall. Sabbatini Y.E. Yang birdied the final hole for a closing 66 to finish 8 under. Jerry Kelly, who played with Sabbatini and Yang in the final threesome, shot a 67 and took third at 7 under. Former Kansas University golfer Gary Woodland placed in a tie for sixth place with a 278 (71-68-68-71). He earned $184,538.

GOLF Pappas prevails in Bogota BOGOTA — Brenden Pappas won the Bogota Open on Sunday when lightning wiped out the third round, reducing the Nationwide Tour event to 36 holes. The 40-year-old South African had rounds of 67 and 66 to finish at 9 under at Bogota Country Club.

AUTO RACING Tire gamble pays off for Edwards LAS VEGAS — Carl Edwards is off to the best start of his career and credits “a gift” from Tony Stewart for his first win of the season. Stewart had the dominant car Sunday at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, but had to shuffle his strategy when a penalty on pit road crippled his chances. Edwards crew chief Bob Osborne took note of what Stewart was doing, then used it to get his own driver into Victory Lane. Stewart was the leader when he was penalized for leaving his pit stall with the air hose still attached to his Chevrolet. Crew chief Darian Grubb had to call for a two-tire stop to get Stewart back into the lead, the entire field saw it work, and Stewart was backed into a corner. He had to take four tires on his final stop, most everyone else took two, and the longer time spent on pit road shuffled him too far back to make it back to the front. Edwards, in a Roush Fenway Racing Ford, pulled away for the win, while Stewart, who dropped to 22nd after the four-tire stop, was unable to chase him down and finished second.

COLLEGE BASKETBALL Bradley fires coach Les PEORIA, ILL. — Jim Les was fired Sunday as Bradley’s basketball coach, ending a nineyear run that featured an upset of Kansas University in the first round of the 2006 NCAA Tournament. The Braves were only 12-20 this season, including 4-14 in the Missouri Valley Conference.

Hansbrough leads All-Big East PROVIDENCE, R.I. — Notre Dame’s Ben Hansbrough was the lone unanimous selection to the All-Big East team on Sunday. The 6-foot-3 senior guard was joined on the six-man first team by Kemba Walker of Connecticut, Austin Freeman of Georgetown, Ashton Gibbs of Pittsburgh, Marshon Brooks of Providence and Dwight Hardy of St. John’s. The first team is comprised of the league’s top six scorers and was chosen by the conference’s head coaches, who were not allowed to vote for their own players.

MLB White Sox, Thornton agree GLENDALE, ARIZ. — With job security out of the way, White Sox lefty Matt Thornton can now turn his attention to proving he should be Chicago’s closer. The All-Star reliever agreed to a $15 million, three-year contract Sunday that adds two years and $12 million to his previous deal.

As for results, Buehrle was just happy the performance came in March. “I got my work in, and I’m healthy. That’s all that matters,” he said. “I might have missed a couple of spots.” Adam Dunn drove in his first run of the spring, a single in the first inning that scored Alexei Ramirez. He singled again in the sixth. Juan Pierre, Brent Lillibridge and Tyler Flowers each added two hits for the White Sox. Lance Zawadzki and Pedro Feliz hit solo home runs for the Royals.

THE QUOTE “St. John’s Coach Steve Lavin was ejected for unloading (Bob) Knight-like obscenities at officials in his team’s loss against Seton Hall (on March 3). Lavin was so upset that 15 years of hair gel suddenly drained from his follicles.” — Chris Dufresne, in the Los Angeles Times

“Our guys have played well,” he quickly added of the Jayhawks, who take a 29-2 overall record, 14-2 in the league into Thursday’s firstround Big 12 tournament game against either Oklahoma State or Nebraska (11:30 a.m., Kansas City’s Sprint Center). “Think about our team. We’ve gone through some stuff, some self-imposed (suspensions to Mario Little, Tyshawn Taylor, Elijah Johnson), some tragic (deaths of Thomas Robinson’s mother, grandmother and grandfather and Danny Manning’s father). We’ve gone through a lot of stuff (including injuries to Tyrel Reed, Josh Selby, Travis Releford), and it doesn’t make any difference, for the most part.” That’s because KU’s deep roster has come through. “We’ve had f ive guys it seems every game that play well enough for us to win, and when you are picking from eight, it’s a lot easier to get five than when you are picking from six,” Self said. “We’ve got one McDonald’s All-American on the team (Selby), and he’s not yet playing like he can play. “The other guys are good players. They share the ball and know their role and have accepted it, and to be honest with you, I think like it.” Self said the only issues that have bothered him have been the personal tragedies. “The guys have become closer. All this stuff, the other stuff hasn’t bothered me

beause we put somebody else in,” Self said. “These guys are to the point we put somebody else in, (and) they’ve got to deliver.” The Jayhawks have delivered big-time in winning yet another conference crown. “I do think it’s harder in today’s time,” Self said, responding to his mentor Larry Brown’s statement that KU’s feat just might be more impressive than UCLA’s winning 13 in a row from 1967 to ’79. “Not that long ago, if you recruited great players, you were going to have great years. Now if you recruit a great player, you may have him one, two years max. We’ve been lucky. We’ve had good players. We haven’t had other than Wayne Simien first-team All-Americans. We haven’t had unbelievable guys from a prospect standpoint, NBA standpoint. We’ve had a lot of guys come in highly recruited who have gotten better and over time played themselves in position they could be a good draft pick. “Not any one challenged for national player-of-the-year status that some other schools have gotten. That’s what I’m kind of most proud of. I feel our guys have gotten better. We’ve been able to keep guys around for the most part for a couple years.” Self ’s performance as a coach has made Brown proud. “Roy’s body of work was phenomenal,” Brown said of 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.”

Marciel, Jayhawks trip AFA J-W Staff Reports

S U R P R I S E , A R I Z . — Senior left-handed pitcher Wally Marciel allowed just one run over seven innings, and third baseman Jake Marasco went 3-for-4 with a pair of runs scored as Kansas University snapped a three-game baseball losing streak with a 4-1 victory over Air Force on Sunday at the Coca Cola Classic. The Jayhawks went 1-3 in the tournament and moved to 5-6 overall. The Falcons fell to 4-7 overall. Kansas used a big second inning and a dominating performance by its senior lefty Marciel to earn their fifth win of the season. Marciel, from Kailua, Hawaii, allowed one run off three hits, with two walks and two strikeouts. He did not allow a base hit through the 1 first 4 ⁄3 innings and held the Falcons to just five base-runners in seven innings. Jayhawk closer Colton Murray picked up his second save of the season, pitching the final two innings. The junior righty allowed one base hit, but struck out four, including the last three in the ninth. Kansas starting pitchers Marciel and T.J. Walz — who had a quality start Saturday evening against No. 7 Arizona State — were named to the Surprise Classic All-Tournament team.

Dear Annie: Let me add a different perspective for “Snubbed Co-Worker,” who felt she was being ignored and treated rudely. I could be her co-worker. I work with a woman who never stops talking. If you give her so much as a nod or a smile, she will corner you and go on indefinitely. I long ago gave up being polite in order to avoid her verbal clutches. “pushes” himself at each We work in close proximity, workout. so I have the “pleasure” of lisFrankly, I am tired of it. He tening to her incessant condoesn’t care if I am sick as long as I still devote all my attention to him because he’s the most important person. He never says “please” or “thank you.” He just demands what he wants and loves being in total control. I have no one to talk to in my small community. Where do I go from here? How do I continue to deal with Donald? — Why Is It Always About Him?

Heather Locklear returns to prime time in the diverting made-for-cable headscratcher “He Loves Me” (8 p.m., Lifetime). The star of “Dynasty,” “Melrose Place” and “Flirting with Forty” (6 p.m., Lifetime) has never been what you’d call a great actress. Rather, she’s blazed a career out of over-the-top guilty-pleasure roles that have kept her on camera for more than three decades. She’s also traversed the perilous voyage from sexy young thing to “she still looks good for her age” — a rare feat for any female performer. It’s difficult to describe “He Loves Me” in too much detail without giving away key plot points. Suffice it to say that when it begins, Laura (Locklear) is seen having rather risky “relations” with Sam (Max Martini) aboard a commuter ferry. We soon learn that Sam, a razorphobic, roughtalking, tattooed sax player, is not her husband. Cut to a loving and doting dad, Nick (Dylan Neal). But then, just to show us that Laura is not just any bad girl, she’s seen giving money to a homeless woman and then engaging in a heart-to-heart with a fellow Realtor in her high-end office who appears to know Laura’s secret and warns her that she risks losing “everything.” At this moment, a run-of-the-mill Lifetime movie could go on auto-pilot and navigate the “Smart Woman, Foolish Choices,” genre or settle down to an cautionary tale of sex addiction or other such therapeutic folderol. Then — and again, I risk saying too much — about halfway through, the movie takes an implausible turn and never looks back. And, I’m happy to say, it becomes less believable with every passing scene. Like the most memorable TV movies, “He Loves Me” follows a perverse and enjoyable trajectory. It just gets better and better as it grows worse and worse. ● Virginia Madsen guest stars as a newly appointed senator on the two-hour helping of “The Event” (7 p.m., NBC), now returning to the schedule. ● As “The Event” returns for the second half of its truncated season, “Greek” (8 p.m., ABC Family) graduates from the airwaves. The gang rally to stop the destruction of their fraternity house in this finale. ● The micro-fracturing of the pop music business has created an environment where a performer can be on the top of the charts in one particular genre and remain a complete stranger to everybody else. In many ways, it’s not unlike cable television. With that in mind, “All About Aubrey” (9 p.m., Oxygen) follows the comeback trail of Aubrey O’Day, a former member of the manufactured girl group Danity Kane.

Dear Annie: How do you deal with a husband who thinks the world revolves around him? “Donald” always has to be the center of attention and makes sure he is in the spotlight at all times. People have told me he is spoiled and self-centered, which I already knew from many years of marriage. Several years ago, I tried to improve my life by eating healthier, losing weight and being more active. I tried, unsuccessfully, to encourage Donald to join me. So I cooked healthier meals and tried to make gradual changes that seemed to work. Now, Donald has health issues. Everything centers around what he needs. Suddenly exercise is a top priority. He informs me almost daily of how his nutritionist wants him to eat. If food isn’t prepared properly, seasoned just so and fresh each day, it will hurt his health. If it doesn’t taste good, he won’t be able to eat it and it will cause problems. He claims he never eats in excess, yet he will grab candy bars and ice cream and think that’s perfectly fine. Donald talks about his condition constantly to anyone who asks how he is. He delights in recounting all the details and expounds on his “excellent” performance in therapy and how hard he

No. 1 Buckeyes blast Badgers The Associated Press

No. 1 Ohio State 93, No. 10 Wisconsin 65 C O L U M B U S , O H I O — Jon Diebler lived up to his “3-bler” nickname by hitting seven of eight shots behind the arc while scoring 27 points, leading top-ranked Ohio State to an emotion-laden victory over Wisconsin on Sunday. Freshman Jared Sullinger added 22 points, William Buford had 18 and David Lighty 13 for the Buckeyes (29-2, 16-2 Big Ten), who got back at the Badgers (23-7, 13-5) for a painful loss a month ago. After that defeat, Sullinger said a fan spit in his face, and Wisconsin coach Bo Ryan added, “We won the game. Deal with it.” Ohio State hit six of seven three-pointers while building a 15-point halftime lead — and never let up. The Buckeyes had clinched the outright Big Ten title a day earlier thanks to No. 6 Purdue’s 67-65 upset loss at Iowa. As the game ended, a capacity crowd chanted, “Deal with it. Deal with it.” Ohio State hit 14 of 15 threepointers in the game and shot 68 percent from the field. The Badgers had hung a come-from-behind 71-67 victory on the Buckeyes on Feb. 12.

Because of this, the professional storyteller says, it is important to nurture children’s inherent curiosity and creativity. “A young person’s imagination is wide open,” he says. “Their sense of joy is palpable, and they inspire me to be the best I can, so the future will be a better place.” Gonzales and pianist Frederic Chiu will perform two classics, “The Carnival of Animals,” by French romantic composer Camille Saint-Saens, and “Peter and the Wolf,” by Russian composer Sergei Prokofiev on Sunday at the Lied Center. Gonzales says the production will be a mix of the traditional and modern, as the two artists have updated the narration for the works and changed the musical accompaniment. “The interesting thing here,” Gonzales says, “is that both of these pieces were written for orchestra, for ensemble, but Frederic Chiu is playing them solo, which is stunning. I have adapted ‘Peter and the Wolf,’ so I’ll be doing an original version of the text. The ‘Carnival’ piece is always given an introduction, and I’ve written a suite of poems to introduce each of the animals. A distinguishing factor here is that I’m a poet and musician. I use the music in very concrete ways to inspire the poetry.” For Frederic Chiu, performing classical music for children is especially important. He says it is disappearing from modern culture. “The classic repertoire,” the pianist says, “it’s something we hardly hear anymore in our daily life. You used to hear bits of it in commercials or a movie. Today, unless you spend your time looking for it, you can spend your life avoiding classical music. Yet, here is where I believe humans have created their greatest creative works. I think it would be, really, a great loss for people, any person in their life, if they didn’t come across some of the real great works in classical music. That’s why composers

“Today, unless you spend your time looking for it, you can spend your life avoiding classical music.” — FREDERIC CHIU wrote these pieces, because they knew, throughout history, they needed something to grab young audiences and hook them to the music, to educate them without knowing it.” According to Gonzales, the two performers met at an arts festival and became friends. Afterward, it was Chiu who

approached Gonzales about performing these two classic works together. Gonzales says writing for the pieces was a very natural process. “I went to Frederic’s home, and he played through the pieces. I was immediately struck by the humor, creativity and whimsy of it. The (writing) just flew out of my pen. I’d been writing difficult, challenging stuff about pollution; it was gnarly and tough. It was a delight to bring this music forward. We had a very easy, rich period of collaboration, putting this together.” Lied Center Associate Director Karen Christilles says she’s very excited about the performance. In particular, she’s pleased to have Gonzales perform as he’s scheduled to do additional work with younger children through the Center’s Program 3to5. “David will be performing works for them, for our very young ones, as part of his stay with us,” she says. Christilles says the performance is perfect for children, or anyone who is excited about classical music performances. “It is absolutely perfect for all ages,” she says. “The entire family can come and enjoy. Certainly adults love to be told stories, and this music is in the canon of the great literature, so it will be an enjoyable time for an adult, but is particularly geared toward family.”

SLICE of Life


{ Professor’s music career has taken him around the world


aul Stevens, associate professor of horn at Kansas University, has worked on Hollywood blockbusters, TV shows, rubbed shoulders with foreign government leaders, performed with world-famous artists and played in some of the world’s finest concert halls. But he still underplays his achievements. “I have still so much to learn about and achieve with the horn,” he says. “The horn’s always the master, never to be perfected. You keep chasing, finding ways to make it more expressive, and trying to convey what the composers intended. There’s always more to achieve, and that’s the fun of the challenge.” Stevens grew up in Santa Monica, Calif. He inherited his love of music and films from his dad, who worked for Paramount Studios, and his mom, from Kingman, who was (and remains) an international concert pianist. His first musical performance was derailed. “When I played a violin piece called ‘Airplane’ for the neighborhood boys, they said ‘the airplane crashed,’ so that ended that,” he explains. “I then tried piano but felt more attracted to the horn. I loved the way it looked before falling in love with its sound.” Stevens won a full scholarship to Rice University, Houston, and played with the Houston Symphony. He then accepted a scholarship to Juilliard but quit after a year to pursue his dream of becoming a writer. “Studying English at the University of California was an incredible experience, but I couldn’t get away from music,” he says. “I’d bring a brass quintet into Shakespeare class to play iambic pentameter rhythms or make my professor study Brahms 1 and compare it to Wordsworth’s ‘Prelude.’”

After graduating magna cum laude, his passion for the horn was reignited; he met his guru, Dave Krehbiel, San Francisco Symphony’s principal horn. He obtained his master’s degree from San Francisco’s Conservatory of Music, then returned to Juilliard for his post-graduate diploma. He’s performed worldwide, including Asia and the Caribbean, in Poland and Haiti as guests of the countries’ governments, and played principal horn under conductors such as Leonard Bernstein and Zubin Mehta. After graduating from Juilliard, Stevens returned to L.A. and worked on Hollywood movies and TV soundtracks such as “Ransom,” over 50 episodes of “Star Trek: The Next Generation” and “Mickey’s Nutcracker.” While working at Disney, he met his wife, Annie. Two children later, priorities changed. “I was working 16 hours every day and was rarely at home,” Stevens says. “Family was priority for Annie and me, so I decided to get my doctorate at UCLA and come to Kansas. I’d spent childhood summers here with my grandfather. I loved fishing with him, watching fireflies, thunderstorms and old folks playing bridge. I thought Kansas was beautiful and knew it’d be a great place to raise my children, better than L.A.” He came to KU in 2000 and remains passionate about teaching, playing and performing. He plays frequently with the Kansas City Symphony and Lyric Opera. “I love Kansas,” he says. “Lawrence is a friendly, creative place, with great schools for my kids. “The Lied Center is amazing, and I love our university and music school. Great things are happening here.”

ustin Hoffman has lived in Lawrence for years but had never visited the Prairie Park Nature Center. He also is used to getting parenting advice from his parents and in-laws, both of whom live in Lawrence. So on a Saturday morning in February, Hoffman brought his 3-year-old son, Caden, to a Daddy and Me playgroup outing at the nature center. “This is a good way to get out on a Saturday and spend time with my son,” Hoffman says. “It’s good just to be able to talk to dads my own age.” That’s one of the goals of the Daddy and Me playgroup, which is celebrating its oneyear anniversary this month. The group, open to fathers and children from birth to 5 years old, is a partnership between Parents as Teachers and Dads of Douglas County. About 15 dads and their sons or daughters gather monthly for activities, which have included swimming, listening to stories and just playing with toys, in addition to last month’s animal lessons at the Prairie Park Nature Center. “I like to use community resources to tap into, so it gives parents ideas for things they can do with their children,” says Gayle Anderson, Parents as Teachers coordinator. Stay-at-home dad Joseph Fowler, who frequents Daddy and Me meetings with his 18-month-old daughter, Kennedy, says he often goes to playgroups during the week. “It’s usually me and 15 other moms,” he says. “Obviously, you have more in common with a dad than a mom.” He appreciates being able to talk about what Kennedy is going through and asking, “Is this normal?” “I’m always wondering, ‘Is my kid the

The goal of the whole group is to support fathers who are active with their children.” Charlie Bryan, co-coordinator of Daddy and Me, says between the playgroup and a conscious fathering class that is offered, he hopes dads are both encouraged to be involved in their children’s lives and are given resources to help with that process. “We want to support responsible fatherhood, and to provide a space to foster it,” he says. Anderson, with Parents as Teachers, says she had grown so accustomed to being around mothers’ groups that at one of her first Daddy and Me gatherings, when the dads started singing along with their kids, she startled at hearing the low baritone voices. She hopes more dads with start going to the group to continue breaking the mold. “It sounded strange,” she says. “But we want to change that.”

GO green E-reader not always the environmentally friendly choice

riends lament that no one reads anymore, an exaggeration, certainly, but one that reflects a very real concern. Many people don’t read anymore. A world of electronic communication has shortened our attention spans and dulled our critical thinking skills. That is indeed worrisome. The relatively recent revolution of e-readers offers hope that reading books will continue in some form or another into the future. Still, reading on a device leaves many of us cold. Without the visual, tactile, auditory and even olfactory pleasure of pages and ink, it somehow no longer feels like reading. On the other hand, I doubt many of us would want to see old-growth forests felled to fill our bookshelves. Where should a person with a concern for the environment stand, then, on reading books? That’s what the Sierra Club set out to discover, and the results surprised them. Though they had expected to find that e-readers were a greener alternative, they found that unless a person is a voracious book buyer, the opposite is true. According to their report and a recent New York Times article, “unless you’re a fast and furious reader, the energy required to manufacture and then dispose of an e-reader is probably greater than what’s needed to make a traditional book.” The report indicated that if you read 40 or more books a year on your e-reader, it’s probably the better choice environmentally. Otherwise, you should stick with traditional books. Regardless of these findings, the U.S. book industry could do much to green up its act. Many Canadian and European publishers use a combination of recycled paper and that from sustainably harvested wood, but U.S. publishers have been slower to catch on. Though many are signatories to the Green Press Initiative, an organization dedicated to greening the print industry, most have been slow to make substantive changes. Consumer pressure will be needed to turn the tide. An e-mail to the pub-

“The report indicated that if you read 40 or more books a year on your e-reader, it’s probably the better choice environmentally. Otherwise, you should stick with traditional books.” lisher of the latest book you enjoyed wouldn’t hurt. In the meantime, another organization, EcoLibris, has made a way for publishers, authors and readers alike to mitigate the impact of print books. Publishers and authors can purchase credits for each book printed, and that money will be sent to cooperatives planting trees in forests in third-world countries around the globe. Readers, too, can purchase their own sticker online or from their local book-seller. Lawrence’s own Raven Book Store is a participating EcoLibris store, to affix to the book cover that indicates that one tree was planted with the purchase of the book. Of course, another alternative — perhaps the greenest of all — is to check out books from the public library. After initial purchase, physical books can be read, donated, traded and resold, then live many lives on many shelves without causing an iota of damage. Another great thing about them is that, once they have been read to tatters, every part of them, even the leather from covers, is 100 percent recyclable. No matter what our individual choice from the interesting mix, may we all read more rather than less.


BRIEFLY Magic shows will benefit Lawrence Arts Center The Lawrence Arts Center has been selected to benefit from two performances to be given March 26 by the International Brotherhood of Magicians Kansas City Ring, according to Susan Tate, Arts Center director. Magicians from the greater Kansas City area, including Lawrence, will donate their talents in the performances that will benefit programs for children and youth at the arts center. The program is billed as the Masters of Magic Tour. A matinee begins at 2 p.m., and an evening program will be 7 p.m. at the Arts Center theater at 940 N.H. “This will be a fun afternoon and evening of family entertainment featuring some of the best magical entertainers performing on the same stage,” says Steve Steiner, president of the Kansas City magic ring giving the performances. Gene Kean of Lawrence, retired sales director of Allen Press and a magician in the group, recommended the Arts Center for the benefit. Tickets for the magic stage shows should be purchased in advance at the Lawrence Arts Center, stressed Danny Rogovein, the center’s technical director. Seating is limited.

There will be a $2 savings on all tickets purchased before — Kelly Barth can be reached at the day of the shows. The discounted prices are ● See links to articles mentioned in this column at $8 for children and youth to age 14 and $10 for adults.

Parents want daughter to spend less time around boyfriend Dear Dr. Wes and Ben: My parents don’t like that I’ve been dating the same guy since September. They think we’re “too serious” and that we “spend too much time together” so they won’t let me hang out with him as much as I want, but they let me hang out with other people. My grades are good and I’m a sophomore, so I think they are being strict for no reason. Do they want me to be like my friends and get with a new guy every week? Ben: Commitment is a great thing; clinginess is not. I don’t know what your relationship is like, so maybe I’m wasting my breath, but there are a lot of high school relationships that mistake “commitment” for simply being together all the time. We’ve all seen a “whipped” boyfriend or the “obsessed” girlfriend whose weekend plans can turn on a dime if their significant other has an idea. The unfortunate thing is that we’re often blind to this development when it’s happening to us. Maybe you’re right and your parents are being unreasonable, but consider what your relationships look like. Where do your friends fit into your life right now? Would you be spending time with them if your time with your boyfriend wasn’t being limited? If not, then maybe your parents are trying to get you to see something you struggle to see yourself. Maybe “too serious” isn’t so much about your relationship as it is about the effect your boyfriend is having on your other relationships. Always be willing to take a second to step back, take a look and be honest. It will help you, your boyfriend and your parents down the road.

Double Take


“Usually this idea comes from two beliefs still held by some parents: a) too much time together increases the likelihood of sexual activity; and/or b) teens are better off with multiple relationships before settling in on anything serious. In fact, neither of these things is true.”

anything serious. In fact, neither of these things is true. At the risk of sounding crass, if that is the goal, it doesn’t take any time at all for teens to find their way into sexual activity, and far too few confine such expressions to monogamous relationships — a point I’ve lamented several times before. Thus if your parents are actually trying to engineer your dating relationships toward the “less serious,” they may well be promoting something very different than what they intend — hooking up without commitment or intimacy. While I agree that everyone needs a balance of exploration and exclusivity in adolescence, your folks need to spend some time updating their understanding of how teenagers couple these days. Believe me, it’s changed a lot in the 18 years I’ve been seeing clients, becoming more complex and at times ambiguous. So if you think I’m supporting your position on this, you’re right. Radical coupledom at your age is no panacea, but if given the choice between that and the 2011 version of dating around, I gotta go with your theory, hands down.

— DR. WES CRENSHAW Wes: Having been down this road more than twice, I think you and Ben may not be reading the full meaning behind your parents’ concern.

re green suds a dud? Ted Breaux, master distiller for Lucid absinthe, thinks so. And so, it seems, do plenty of other people. Absinthe is French, of course, but “we get quite a bit of interest around St. Patrick’s Day,” Breaux says of the green fairy, the nickname given to absinthe for its color and legendary qualities of intoxication. He also notes that National Absinthe Day, which was Saturday, falls quite close to March 17, the day to celebrate all things Irish. March 5 is the day four years ago that Lucid’s campaign to lift a U.S. ban on absinthe was successful, making the drink legal for the first time in nearly 100 years. Interesting fact: Lucid is produced in France using 130-year-old distillery equipment designed by Gustave Eiffel. Yes, the tower guy. Lucid absinthe is 124 proof (or 62 percent alcohol by volume) so you drink it with caution. A simple presentation St. Patrick’s Day is an absinthe frappe, which is absinthe and a dash of simple syrup, shaken over ice and poured into a glass that has mint in it. Green supernatural beings are one way to celebrate. For a more down-to-earth approach, the Les Deux gastropub in Hollywood has “Dealer’s Choice,” a cocktail where guests describe what they’re in the mood for and bartenders tailor a drink to match. And if the mood is shamrock? “I’m thinking some Jameson (Irish whiskey) and some basil, some lemon juice — that sounds like a good little combo right there,” said Giovanni Martinez, bartender at Les Deux. “Do a little sour with that, maybe honey, lime juice, Jameson and basil. Make sure the basil gets in there really great so it’s flecked with green.” Maybe you want to take the green theme in a completely different direction. At Bar 888 at the InterContinental San Francisco, mixologists created the “LEED’er” cocktail to mark the hotel’s recent award of LEED Gold certification under the U.S. Green Building Council Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design for existing buildings, operations

GOING IT ALONE Some workers like their lonely jobs

ZACH CARLSON, with J.E. Dunn construction, works on Kansas University’s campus.



very day, Mary Ann Frevert commutes about 10 feet to her office. She turns on her computer, pulls out case files stored in cardboard boxes and launches into her work as an investigator for a government regulatory agency. Though she puts in a 40-hour workweek at her rural home in Berryton, Frevert is constantly alone. If not for her daughters, ages 6 and 7, she says she might not see another soul for days on end. “I noticed on Facebook when we had that snow storm ... everybody was posting how they had cabin fever and couldn’t get out,” she says of the Feb. 1 blizzard. “I was like, ‘I go three or four days at a time without going anywhere.’ I don’t even leave the house, I’m just here. It doesn’t bother me, I guess.” For some folks, going to work means going it alone. These worker bees can spend hours on end by themselves, working away, nary a boss looking over their shoulder or office gossip stopping by to glean intel. In Frevert’s case, she doesn’t dispute that she may have one of the area’s loneliest jobs, but that doesn’t mean she’s twiddling her thumbs or daydreaming. In fact, she says working alone might even make her more productive. “I guess I’m kind of a loner,” she says, laughing. “With people around, I get distracted. This (makes it) so much easier to focus on the work. Because when I was in-office, you know, I

So, you may just sit there for 20 to 30 minutes at a time sometimes. You can relax a little bit.” That downtime also includes lunch, something he takes by himself in the cab. Once he’s up there, he’s up there, but he says that isn’t so bad at the KU job site, where he’ll be for about the next year. “Some of the cabs are really small, this one is a little bigger.

Some of the newer cranes, the cabs are real small.”

Also technically working alone but not alone? Many of your area daycare providers. Yes, they have kids around all the time, but in big scheme of things, that isn’t the same as working alongside adults. Before Becky Grammer went into the home daycare business 30 years ago after the birth of her second child, she worked as a dental assistant, constantly greeting patient after patient after patient. She says she doesn’t miss that at all since opening Becky’s Day Care near Baldwin City, and that the transition from working with people to being alone wasn’t that difficult for her. “At that time I just had a baby, so you know,” Grammer says. “Your world revolves around them, that’s for sure.” That’s why Frevert got into the working-alone business in the first place. After she had her daughters, she requested to go from an in-office job that would require her to drive to Topeka daily to one done from the confines of her house. Seven years in, she says the switch to working alone at home has been one of the best career decisions she’s made on several levels. “I stay focused on my work. I feel productive,” she says, adding she saves money on gas, work attire, makeup, hair products and food. “Being alone is beneficial when you have to look through (points to two boxes containing one case file) 2,500 pages of records.” — Staff writer Sarah Henning can be reached at 832-7187.

Technology reshapes what babies will learn BY MEGAN STUKE


t’s a brave new world for babies. Technology that still knocks our socks off will be ho-hum for my baby, who will never know the difference. My baby will never talk on a phone with a cord. The house I grew up in had two phones: one in the kitchen with a LOOOONNG cord, and one in my mom’s bedroom. Later, we got phones in our own rooms, but not until we were in high school. We’d talk on the phone in the kitchen, stretching the long cord over the countertop and sitting on the floor where the TV watchers in the living room could see us or hear as well. He’ll never have to worry about being able to have a private conversation; in fact, he won’t have to talk out loud at all, if he doesn’t want to. He can send a text. And amazingly, he’s already on his way to doing just that. My baby can use my Android. At 18 months, he’s so savvy with the Android that he’s no longer happy to just play with it while it’s in “lock” mode. He used to be content to drag his finger over the lock screen, lighting up patterns and pushing buttons that lead him nowhere. Until he realized there’s more to the phone than just green and white circles. Now, if I don’t unlock it for him, there’s toddler hell to pay. Of course, this is a very bad habit, and we are terrible parents for ever letting him touch our Androids in the first place, so let’s just get that out of the way now. But my point is that this technology is so intuitive, so user-friendly, that even my 18month-old child can scroll around effortlessly and open and close applications that

delight his senses. It took me weeks to get comfortable using my smartphone, but my infant seems to have always just “known” how to pull down the top menu or push a button to get it to light up or return to the home page. What will his life be like, then? By the time he is in high school, will he be searching for data via a chip in his head? Will his school desk have a touch screen embedded in it? If technology is so good that it comes more naturally to us than learning to operate a spoon or use a toilet, I have to worry that it’s going to take over in a way that isn’t completely healthy. This, I suppose, is normal parenting anxiety. We don’t know what we’re doing, and unfortunately, with technology moving at the speed of light, we have no idea what it means for our children. There is no precedent, no conventional wisdom on which to fall. Don’t get me wrong, people. The internet is MY VERY BEST FRIEND. I am a social media addict; I love having information at my fingertips; I feel naked if I leave my phone in the car. But I have to admit that I miss the days of having to badger my brain for a bit of information. IMDB killed conversations about “Oh, you know, that actress that played the wife in the show that we watched in the ‘80s... oh, what was her name?” We watch “Law and Order” and say “where have we seen her before?” and rather than just waiting for it to come to us at 2 in the morning, we open a phone and look it up. Which is both awesome and terrifying. What does this mean for our brains? I

“What will his life be like, then? By the time he is in high school, will he be searching for data via a chip in his head? Will his school desk have a touch screen embedded in it?” have to wonder if it means we use our brains less, leaving the technology to do the work for us. Or, is the technology freeing up useful space in our brains so we don’t have to waste it on mundane things and can therefore go beyond our old capabilies? I read an article in Atlantic Monthly that touches in many ways on my exact concerns. And it addresses my concerns about my concerns. What I mean, is, I don’t want to be a luddite who is always afraid of the new or a change. I realize that people long have resisted new technologies for fear of taking away something fundamental that we value. I had a friend years ago who refused to start doing e-mail. He feared the lack of person-to-person communication would be detrimental to his relationships. And at the time, I said, “How do you feel about telephones?” Of course, he worshipped his cell phone. And I said, “How do you think people felt at first about talking to someone they could not see?” History tells us it sent people over the edge. It freaked them out, they worried about their relationshps, and some flatly refused to do it. So I get that no matter what comes along, we’re prone to be a little skeptical. Still, I have to wonder how much is too much? How will my son’s brain get the

exercise it needs if he’s plugged in at school, in the car, at home? I am careful about TV. I let him watch a half-hour of educational programming in the morning while I get ready for work. I sometimes let him have another half-hour after daycare while he eats a snack. Is that too much? I don’t know, but it works for us. This morning, I took my phone away from him, because he was obsessing. I knew I’d created a monster — one who can’t ride in the car without messing with my phone. And I looked at the monster and saw my face. The face of a person who feels itchy if she doesn’t check her Facebook several times a day and can’t be bothered to look up a phone number in a phone book and has had to hide her phone in the back seat to avoid the lure of texting while driving. I am not modeling great things for my baby if I’m sticking my nose in a laptop or picking up an Android to check something every 15 minutes. And I’m not sure I’m doing myself any favors either. I have a hard time just watching a 30-minute TV show without wanting to “multi-task” on the laptop. I think my brain is so full of quickly moving information that now it craves it. Is this good or bad? I don’t know. But I have a feeling it’s important for us to consciously unplug for a period of time every day, if not for our own good, for our childrens’. On the other hand, I’m completely stoked for my baby to become a technology whiz, because when I’m 80 I’m really gonna need him to come over and program my VCR. — Read more of Megan Stuke’s parenting blog at

Use springtime to add new wellness routines S Mind

pring is once again around the corner. Many of us can now move out of survival mode. It is a good time to build some new behaviors into your life. It is often easier to develop new behaviors during the spring and summer months, and if you practice them regularly, they will become entrenched in your daily routines and easier to continue through the next round of winter. Many of these are obvious, but they’re worth repeating. ● Develop a mindfulness program. Mindfulness is like a wonderful vacation from daily struggles. Like a vacation, mindfulness enables you to take a break from your time-based, task-oriented life and allows you to stay present, avoiding the worry of what has happened before and what is coming later. We recommend books by Pema Chodron to get you started. ● Practice viewing your emotional experience with acceptance rather than judgment. For example, be aware of what “stories” your mind adds to feelings. If you feel lonely, it doesn’t mean you are not a lovable person. Here is a quote from the late, esteemed

basketball coach John Wooden, “If we magnified blessings as much as we magnify disappointments, we would all be much happier.” ● Express gratitude each and every day, as often as you can. Expressing gratitude is an essential building block to overall improved emotional balance. Another Wooden quote, “You can’t live a perfect day until you do something for someone who will never be able to repay you.” A boy we know was asked what he remembered most about Christmas Day, and he quickly said, “delivering dinner to shut ins.” We think that says it all. ● Establish a more intimate relationship with nature and animals. Studies show that people with strong relationships with animals and nature tend to have fewer illnesses. ● Engage in daily exercise and change up your routines. There is virtually nothing more important to your overall health and resistance to disease. ● Regulate your sleep. Work hard on establishing sleep routines that ensure quality and appropriate quantity. Remem-

ber to avoid alcohol within hours of sleep because it is activating to the central nervous system and disruptive to essential deep restorative levels of sleep. ● Balance your eating patterns. Go back to basics to ensure you are getting what your body needs. ● Nurture your relationships. Don’t let small spats or minor differences get in the way of your friendships. Another Wooden gift, “…if Lincoln could pray fervently — and contemporary reports indicate he did — for the people who were opposing him, how much more can we do for someone we just find a little irritating?” ● Be sure to include some spiritual exploration each day to feed your soul and your spirit. Any one of the above can make a difference; however to truly experience lasting change incorporate all of the above into your daily life. Do your best, and you will soon realize big dividends from your wellness program. — Ed Bloch, LSCSW, and Jena Bloch, LCMFT, are directors of the Life Enrichment Center in Lawrence.

“Because of the classic cut of most floral dresses, bright and bold floral prints tend to look more retro.” CAITLIN DONNELLY

Pair a floral dress with edgier accessories


nxious for springtime, green leaves and shoes without socks? Thankfully, we are almost there! Break out your brightest toenail polish and revisit your favorite spring accessories. Revamp last year’s wardrobe, utilizing key pieces that already call your closet home. Read on for a few spring outfit ideas to wear right now — style them using items of your own or pick out similar clothing items during your own spring shopping trip! COUNTRY-CLUB CHIC:

Pull out your monochrome tops, pants and skirts to piece together a colorful spring outfit. Mix and match nautical stripes and bold primaries, and don’t hesitate to wear two bright colors together (a basic red pencil skirt and a deep navy blouse, for example). Stick to clothing with simple, traditional silhouettes to achieve this look overall; however, keep in mind items with detailed stitching or subtle but unique buttons. Accents on seemingly basic apparel add dimension, texture and intrigue to your outfits, even if the detail has been created in the same hue as the whole garment. If you feel overwhelmed by all of

the colors, achieve a similar, classic look by inserting white or black clothing or accessories between doses of color. This use of color blocking is still traditional and equally bold. BAHAMA MAMA: If you’re particularly sick of all this grey and cloudy weather, turn the forecast right around with a wardrobe ready for a tropical getaway. Think bright, sunny clothing and island-inspired prints, oversized flowers and citrus fruits. Pair together pieces in shades of hot pink, purple, tangerine, palm-tree green and sunset yellow for a brilliant, beach-inspired style — but don’t sacrifice the shape of your outfit either. Keep the look feminine with flattering silhouettes, like cinched-waist dresses or soft, sarong-like skirts. Add retro accessories, like cat-eye glasses and stacked, wooden platforms, to complete this look. TEA PARTY PRINCESS: This outfit requires one of my all-time favorite wardrobe essentials, a floral-print dress. Soft, floral-print dresses are decidedly feminine and fresh, inserting the per-

fect dose of spring into any waning winter season. For the most modern look, opt for floral dresses of lighter, pastel patterns, brighter, golden prints, or flowing, painterly prints. Because of the classic cut of most floral dresses, bright and bold floral prints tend to look more retro. And even though a good floral dress speaks very pleasantly by itself, do add a few individual accessories to personalize your outfit. For a feminine take, throw on some peep-toe pumps and add definition to your waist with a crisp white belt. Or for an edgier style, pair your floral dress with ankle boots or lace-up military-style boots. — Caitlin Donnelly can be reached at

A lesson for Lent

River City Jules


sh Wednesday is a couple of days away, beginning the season of repentance, sacrifice and, for us Catholics, fish on Fridays as we wait for Easter to free us from our rules that often include bans on things like chocolate or caffeine but rarely on things cited in any of the Ten Commandments. After spending a number of years denying myself M&M’s, I have decided to give up complaining for Lent. I tried this experiment a couple of summers ago, inspired by Kansas City pastor Will Bowen, who challenged his congregation to give up complaining for 21 straight days. Participants wear a purple rubber bracelet. Each time they complain about something, they move the bracelet to the opposite wrist. Pastor Bowen has over 8 million bracelets in circulation worldwide. I kept a diary to track my progress that summer. Here is how I did… Day One: Bracelet on, positive attitude intact, I take the kids to the pool. Whining ensues, I stand strong. Pre-teen kid bellyflops right in front of me, I give thanks for the cooling sprinkles of water that now ruin the words on my magazine. Snack bar is out of frozen Snickers. Move the bracelet. Day Two: Bracelet on, positive attitude intact, I drive to Target. Behind a 100-yearold woman. Ten below the speed limit. With her blinker on. I say a silent prayer that no one in her path dies. Bracelet stays. Get home from Target to find I left two gallons of milk in the bottom of the cart in the parking lot. Move the bracelet. Day Three: Bracelet on, positive attitude intact, I flip on the TV to find every single network is showing Michael Jackson’s funeral. Move the bracelet. Repeatedly.


$5 Eyebrow Waxing on Wednesdays

(And I can’t help but wonder if, somewhere, Pastor Bowen is doing the same.) Day Four: Start period. Move bracelet. Day Five: Bracelet on, I decide to take on the challenge with a renewed state of mind. Unfortunately this is not the best day to try on swimsuits. Move the bracelet. And go back to Target for a box of brownie mix. And milk. Day Six: Bracelet on, feeling balanced and rational again, I take the kids on a long hike in the woods where I ingest seven spiderwebs and spot two live snakes. I give thanks for the beauty of nature, and the bracelet stays. We come home to a living room floor covered in Styrofoam peanuts I had yet to hide from the dog. I give thanks for the life in our home, and the bracelet stays. I tuck our kids in that night and get ready for bed, landing on a toilet rim, as the seat has been left up. For the 254th time. Move the bracelet. Which, in my opinion, is better than flushing it. Day Seven: Opt for a day of rest, leave the bracelet on my nightstand and enjoy a day free of complaints. Obviously the bracelet must be the problem. I hardly ever complained before it showed up. — Julie Dunlap can be reached at

Planning cultivates gardening success A successful garden starts with good planning. Calculating start dates, sowing dates, successive plantings and crop rotations are essential to the overall production of any garden plot. Step 1: If you are just starting out, pick a spot that receives a minimum of five hours of sunlight daily, has a readily available water supply and is on mostly level, preferably fertile ground. Running rows from north to south optimizes sun exposure and air circulation. Test the soil before planting and amend the soil to assure crops have the appropriate nutrients to thrive. Start small and grow a little more each year. Step 2: Design the overall garden. Consider spacing between plants as well as spacing between rows. Rows less than 4 feet in diameter allow easy access for weeding and harvesting. Tall crops such as corn and climbing beans should be planted on the north side of the garden. Root vegetables can be planted in slightly shady areas. Certain plants do better when grown in unison. Decide whether you will till the garden plot, build a raised bed or plant a no-till garden. Raised beds increase soil temperatures and extend the growing season. For a quick and easy raised bed, pile dirt and compost a minimum of 12 inches deep atop the existing ground. Step 3: Decide what to grow and how much to grow. Internet sites and gardening books offer information on expected yields as well as suggestions on plants-to-people ratios. has a helpful planting guide, as do many gardening websites. Step 4: Develop a sowing plan. Use the information on the back of the seed packets to decide which seeds to start inside and which seeds to sow directly into the soil. Several websites, such as, offer interactive sowing

guides, which will help calculate the proper dates to start seeds inside and to sow seeds outside, based on germination rates and frost dates. Be sure to consider successive plantings and crop rotations when formulating your plan. Early-season crops such as lettuce, radishes and peas can be followed by later-season crops such as cabbage, corn and beans. Step 5: Start your seeds inside to assure an optimal growing season. Don’t plant too much at one time. Several small plantings several weeks in a row will assure you do not get overwhelmed at harvest time and help create a bountiful table time and time again. — Linda Cottin can be reached at

BRIEFLY Tips to use treats as training reward The American Kennel Club’s AKC Family Dog contributor and trainer Kathy Santo offers advice on efficiently using treats as a reward in the September/ October 2010 issue of AKC Family Dog. Among them: ● Training with food is not the

same as bribing your dog to listen. When you correctly train

with treats, you are rewarding your dog for a job well done, not bribing him to listen. You tell your dog to do something, he does it, and then you reward him with food. He listened to you not knowing that you had something for him in return. ● Avoid begging at the table.

Most people fear that training with treats will lead to begging at the table. Santo says “if the food that you have on the table is never placed into your dog’s

mouth, your dog won’t create the begging behavior.” ● Once you train with food,

you will not always have to reward with treats. If you reward your dog unpredictably but in a big way, then he will continue to work hard to get the next reward. Your pup will learn that there may be times when there is no reward other than praise. — MCT News Services
