A Nativity scene from the U.S.

Festival of the Nativities appeals to global spirit By Nikki Wentling

Christmas lights hang from the ceiling, lining the perimeter of the Upper Room at the Centenary United Methodist Church in North Lawrence. Ornaments and wreaths hang from the walls, and garland lines the numerous tables, on which sit countless nativity scenes. These 350 scenes are different shapes, sizes and colors and are made from different materials. They represent 38 countries across five continents, each telling the story of Christmas, of Jesus’ birth, with a different perspective. “I honestly don’t know how many we have,” said Connie Hadl, who heads the church’s nativity committee. “We put out 350 for sure, but I know we have more than that.” The public can view the display at the 19th annual Festival of Nativities, located at the church, a small building tucked into the corner of Fourth and Elm streets. Hadl said a “find it” game, much like a scavenger hunt, is available to anyone viewing the nativities. Participants are given a list of certain pieces to look for, challenging them

A Nativity scene from Indonesia to observe the details of each scene. “You can see the sets, but once you start looking a little bit closer, then you can really see them in a different perspective and a different light,” Hadl said. All in all, it takes more than 300 hours to set up the display. But those hours are worth it, Hadl said, when she hears what the public has to say. “We have people that are new, who have never heard of it, and they say, ‘I have to go home and tell my mother, or my neighbor,’” she said. “We have families that come ev-

She has seen hundreds of nativities come and go, each telling the same story in a different fashion, from a different perspective, each with a special significance. But when asked which was her favorite, Hadl had a surprisingly quick response. “I have a miniature marble set that I just love,” she said. “It’s from Chile, and it’s just a tiny little thing that you can put in the palm of your hand.”

Today’s Community Christmas Dinner requires an army of good-hearted folks By Elliot Hughes

With an estimated 1,000 people to feed, someone must gather mountains of food, create partnerships with more than a dozen businesses and round up a couple hundred volunteers to be there Christmas Day.

Topeka (ap) — The state Department of Administration has developed proposals for razing one state office building near the Kansas Statehouse and selling two others.

Kettle drive coming up short At 2 p.m. Christmas Eve, the iconic red kettles of The Salvation Army were packed up for the year. But after coming up shy of its $115,000 goal, the Lawrence chapter still hopes to receive a few more contributions online or over the phone. Jim Evers, development director, said Tuesday that he expects the amount to reach about $98,000, similar to last year’s total. It will take almost a week for the organization to make a final tally of donations, Evers said. The local chapter had raised 63 percent of this

year’s goal by Dec. 19, Evers said. The proceeds will help fund the organization’s food, housing and utilities assistance programs, as well as its food pantry. Donations can be made by calling 1-800-SALARMY or visiting Contributions probably came up short this year because there was one fewer week between Thanksgiving and Christmas and because of colder weather, Evers said. — By Elliot Hughes

have been doing it so long — 20 years, according to another volunteer, Brower Burchill — that everything has long been figured out. “We are so well organized, it rolls like clockwork,� he said. Most of the planning for the dinner doesn’t begin until the fall, although after every dinner, the committee convenes in January for a debriefing session, where they identify what went right and wrong, Burchill said. From there, months of nothing, until Thanksgiving time, Ely said, when the committee places its first orders of supplies. This year, the committee called on the public to provide 50 12-pound turkeys, 35 boneless 5-pound hams and pies, said organizer Deb Engstrom. More than a dozen businesses, as well as First United Methodist Church, are relied on for supplying and preparing the meat and other foods. M & M Bakery thaws the turkeys in its walk-in refrigerator. Bigg’s Barbecue cooks the turkeys and delivers them Christmas morning. Party America supplies utensils and plates. Sunrise Garden Center donates poinsettias, and Red Lyon Tavern’s got the ice, Burchill said. Then comes Christmas morning, when calls for delivery — more than 600 last year — start pouring in at 6 a.m. More than 400 are expected to sit down for dinner at the church, Ely said. Burchill said the committee doesn’t have enough time in the preceding weeks to sign up volunteers, so the committee simply hopes enough people show up, which usually isn’t a problem. “When Christmas day comes, we end up with an army,� Ely said. “I would guess (up to) 300 volunteers helping out between the preparation, the deliveries being made.� And once the turkey’s cut and everyone starts digging in, Ely marvels at the neighborly atmosphere. “For me, it’s the opportunity to be a part of the community,� he said. “I’ve been in the dining room down there at the church with millionaires sharing a meal with someone with the clothes on their back and that’s all they have, and they’re enjoying each other’s company.�

Kansas parolee fighting for contact with newborn son topeka (ap) — A Sedgwick County parolee convicted when he was 18 of having sex with a 15-yearold is trying to fight state rules that prevent him from having contact with his children. Nathan Walker, 22, lives in a halfway house a few miles from his wife and newborn son, Noah, and his 5-year-old stepson, The Topeka CapitalJournal reported. Walker has started a website to fight the order from the Department of Corrections’ Prisoner Review Board that prevents him from living with his wife and children. He also wants to educate “people of Kansas on sex crime laws and how they can affect our children and families in a negative way.� Walker, who works at a tortilla factory, was convicted of unlawful voluntary sexual relations for having consensual sex

16th,� Clark said. Senate Minority Leader Anthony Hensley, a Topeka Democrat, said that under the proposals, if the Landon and Eisenhower buildings are sold, the state would lease the space from its new, private owners. The proposals for state office buildings come as the state is winding down work on a 13-year, nearly $330 million renovation of the Statehouse. State officials have for years pondered the future of the 1950s-era Docking building because of what they’ve seen as the high cost of renovating it. One 2004 estimate put the cost of a renovation at $40 million, and in 2007, the department, under Democratic then-Gov. Kathleen Sebelius, proposed spending $77 million to gut the building and reconstruct it from the inside. “It’s got a huge amount of deferred maintenance,�


brief the lawmakers on a proposal to raze the Docking building and sell the other two. He’s doing so a week ahead of a meeting of the Legislature’s Joint Committee on State Building Construction, which would have to review such proposals. The Docking building, named for Robert Docking, governor from 1967-1975, is just west of the Capitol. The Landon building, named for Alf Landon, governor from 1933-1937 and the 1936 Republican presidential nominee, is just east of the Statehouse. The Eisenhower building, named for President Dwight Eisenhower, is a block north. “Hopefully we’ll have some options we’ll put before the committee on the

Health care website put to test as deadline hovered Associated Press

ChiCago — The government’s retooled health care website was put to its biggest test yet as record numbers of Americans rushed to beat Tuesday’s extended deadline for signing up for insurance. After a disastrous, glitchfilled rollout in October,, where people in 36 states can shop for coverage, received 2 million visits Monday, its highest one-day total, the government said. Traffic was not as heavy on Tuesday but still high, White House spokeswoman Tara McGuinness said. She had no immediate estimate of visitors or how many succeeded in obtaining insurance before the midnight deadline. “The site is performing well under intense consumer traffic,” said Kurt DelBene, a former Microsoft executive appointed last week to take over management of the online marketplace. “With the highest volumes we have seen to date, response time is fast and the error rating is low.” Error rates were lower than 1 in 200, and pages loaded quickly, in less than a half-second, officials said. For a multitude of reasons, including technical difficulties with the site or

trouble understanding the instructions, thousands of people sought telephone help and wound up waiting on hold on Christmas Eve at the government’s call center. Ian Stewart of Salt Lake City said he and his wife, both students, had been trying for weeks to complete their application on the federal site, thwarted by computer error messages each time. On Tuesday morning, while visiting relatives in Colorado for Christmas, they reached a call center counselor who succeeded in enrolling them. The “silver” plan they chose will cost them $241 a month after a cost-lowering tax credit. “We’re relieved that we got it working, elated that we got insurance again and very frustrated that it took this long,” Stewart said. More than 110,000 people had called the gov-

ernment’s help line by Tuesday afternoon, with wait times averaging 27 minutes, officials said. On Monday, the call center received more than 250,000 calls, a one-day record. Monday was the signup deadline for people wanting coverage at the start of the new year. But the Obama administration pushed back the deadline a day to deal with heavy traffic from procrastinators. “We see this intense traffic as a sign that people are eager for affordable health insurance,” said Julie Bataille, a spokeswoman for the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, the federal agency in charge of the overhaul. Obama said late last week that more than 1 million Americans had enrolled for coverage since Oct. 1.

Topeka — The Kansas Hospital Association has hired a former Republican cabinet secretary to develop a plan for expanding Medicaid that the group hopes Gov. Sam Brownback and the GOP-led Kansas Legislature can support. According to a report by the KHI News Service, the hospital association has hired Mike Leavitt, who served as Health and Human Services Secretary under President George W. Bush, to develop a plan similar to plans already adopted in Iowa and Arkansas. “We ought to as a state be having a conversation about whether we can come up with a plan like that and the reality is that conversation just hasn’t happened yet,” KHA president and CEO Tom Bell was quoted as saying. The federal Affordable Care Act originally called for expanding Medicaid to


include everyone with incomes up to 138 percent of the federal poverty level. That’s $15,856 a year for a single individual, or $26,951 for a family of three. The U.S. Supreme Court later ruled, however, that since Medicaid is a joint state-federal program, Congress could not mandate such an expansion, but could only make it optional for states. The federal government will pay 100 percent of the cost of the expansion for the first three years, starting in 2014, and gradually reduce its share to 90 percent of the cost. Kansas is among 22 states that so far have not opted to take part in the expansion. Kansas also has one of the strictest eligibility standards for its Medicaid program, now known as KanCare. The income limit for a family of three is $5,148 a year, or about 26 percent of the poverty level. Workingage adults without children are not eligible.

Iowa and Arkansas, which are both led by Republican governors, have adopted plans that will use the new federal funds to help purchase private health insurance for those newly-eligible individuals. The Kansas Health Institute, the parent organization of KHI News Service, estimates that 85,300 Kansans who are currently uninsured would gain coverage through the expansion. So far, Brownback has not proposed taking advantage of the expansion, but also has not stated publicly that he opposes it. “I’ve not declared a position on it because you’re seeing the federal government adjust monthly, Obamacare,” Brownback told reporters earlier this month. “They may adjust this one.” But KHA’s Bell said Kansas is turning away money by not taking part. “Beginning in 2014 we will, in effect, be sending some of our tax dollars to states that have expanded Medicaid,” Bell said.

Merry Christmas

Congress 2014 forecast: still stormy By Doyle McManus Los Angeles Times

The season went by so quickly, let’s see if we can extend that special Christmas feeling into the new year.


s expected, the late date for Thanksgiving this year made the Christmas season go by even faster than usual. After a flurry of activities — holiday fairs, music programs, religious services and, of course, shopping — the holiday suddenly is upon us. We hope everyone has had a pleasant lead-up to today’s celebration and got to enjoy all their favorite holiday traditions with all of their favorite people. Inclement weather may have put a bit of a damper on shopping last weekend, but procrastinators seemed out in full force Monday and Tuesday providing, we hope, a happy holiday for local retailers. It may have slowed down the shoppers a little, but nothing gets people in the Midwest in a Christmas mood like a little snow. Below-zero temperatures maybe weren’t on our wish list, but Sunday’s storm delivered a beautiful blanket that clung to trees and added a special glow to the holiday lights. With most of the preparations and bustle behind us, today is the day to sit back and enjoy the holiday, eat some good food and spend some time with the people you care about. Unlike at Thanksgiving, there is no reason to incite a shopping frenzy so most retailers will be closed today — all day — so their workers can enjoy the Christmas holiday. The best gift of Christmas is the feeling of good will and sharing that the season inspires. Local residents stepped up once again to adopt less fortunate families and individuals and try to make their holiday a little happier. For anyone who needs a meal or some company today, the sharing spirit continues with the annual Community Christmas Dinner from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at First United Methodist Church. It does seem like the Christmas season went by really quickly this year. Maybe that’s a reason to try to extend that holiday feeling a little longer — actually as long as possible into the new year. We hope you have a safe and wonderful Christmas filled with fun, family, friends and all the special feelings of the season. Merry Christmas!



From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for Dec. 25, 1913: “It is Christmas Day. The hurry and noise of the shopping season years has died down, leaving quietude ago and rest, happiness, yes ‘peace IN 1913 on earth good will to men.’ Lawrence, which has been the scene of so much excitement and preparation the past weeks, today has resumed its usual quiet aspect. ... Many of the business houses remained open last night to accommodate the late buyers, but they will not open again until tomorrow morning when the annual clearing up, the annual invoice of stock and the clean-up sales begin.” — Compiled by Sarah St. John

“Congress is finishing this year less popular than a cockroach,” Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., said the other day. The reason, he charged, was simple: “mindless, knee-jerk obstruction from Republicans.” Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., sees things differently. “As long as Harry Reid is the majority leader,” he said, “the Senate will increasingly be a dysfunctional place.” It would be nice to think that Congress’ easy passage of a bipartisan compromise on the federal budget this month was the sign of a new spirit of cooperation on Capitol Hill. But in the hallways of the Senate last week, there was little evidence of bipartisanship, or even Christmas cheer. “We need a cooling-off period,” Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, told me. “I’ve raised two boys. Sometimes you need to go to separate rooms to cool down.”

Primary challenges Indeed, next year is unlikely to get better, for one simple reason: It’s a congressional election year. And not an ordinary election year. A significant number of Republican incumbents in both the House and Senate will face primary challenges from tea party conservatives. That means that some of the legislators who were once likely to seek cross-aisle compromises will be trying to show how tough and conservative they are. Getting Democrats and Republicans

Indeed, next year is unlikely to get better, for one simple reason: It’s a congressional election year.” to agree on anything will be harder than ever. “Good things seldom happen in election years,” noted former Rep. Bill Frenzel, a moderate Republican from Minnesota. Where are the conflicts likely to come? Rep. Paul D. Ryan, R-Wis., who fashioned the bipartisan budget deal with Sen. Patty Murray, DWash., has already promised another collision over the federal debt ceiling. Republicans have tried several times to use the debt ceiling — the limit on the Treasury’s authority to borrow — as leverage to force fiscal concessions from President Obama, even though refusal to raise the limit could lead to a default on the federal debt and disastrous consequences for the economy. “We will not want to walk away with nothing” from a debt ceiling vote, Ryan vowed on CNBC, although he added that the GOP caucus hasn’t yet decided what to ask for in return. Sen. Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., seconded the idea, noting that the debt ceiling is one way for Republicans to “get the president’s attention.” The only good news in this picture is that the disastrous government shutdown in October may have taught both sides a thing or two about

Republicans learn lesson Ryan says Republicans Back to partisan ‘normal’ So, with luck, what we can have learned a lesson from that episode. Next year, he hope for next year is a resaid, they’ll be looking for turn to what you might call goals that are practical, not “normal” partisan warfare: unreachable. “You can’t let tough, sometimes even anthe perfect be the enemy of gry, but not as destructive (or, in the Republicans’ case, the good,” he said. That was the message self-destructive) as before. House Speaker John A. Just don’t expect much to get Boehner, R-Ohio, was trying to done. There won’t be a grand reinforce when he denounced conservative organizations for bargain over spending and pushing his caucus into the taxes; that has turned out to October shutdown, advisers be unreachable. But there say. Boehner has told House may be a bit more progress members that even though he on massaging the budget cuts welcomes a fight over the debt of the sequester, a process ceiling, he doesn’t want to risk Ryan and Murray began this a federal default, especially in month.

College apps offer conversation starters By Michael Smerconish The Philadelphia Inquirer

Wishing for a way to obscure the red state/blue state divide at your holiday table? Seeking to steer conversation away from Obamacare? Anxious not to antagonize the in-laws? Fear not. Help has arrived in the form of this year’s college application essays. The current subject of angst for American high school seniors might provide fodder for your Christmas Eve confab. Last weekend brought news for those who applied early. Applicants who have been offered admission at their first choice are finished. But for the recipients of bad news, and the remainder

Help has arrived in the form of this year’s college application essays. The current subject of angst for American high school seniors might provide fodder for your Christmas Eve confab.” who did not apply early, they are in the throes of meeting a Jan. 1 deadline, which includes answering essay questions. The five choices that accompany the Common Application are not conversation starters. (They include: “Recount an incident or time when you experienced failure”; “Reflect on a time when you challenged a belief or idea”; and “Describe a place or environment where you are perfectly content.”) Better material comes from the individual supplemental questions asked by some schools. How about a toast inspired by the University of Virginia, which asks, “To tweet or not to tweet?” During dinner, if you’re looking to spark storytelling, you can offer one of Stanford’s inquiries and give your guests more latitude than the 50 words afforded for the written reply: “What were your favorite events (e.g., performances, exhibits, sporting events, etc.) this past year?” Or, “What his-

torical moment or event do you wish you could have witnessed?” Holy Cross has a great topic for grandparents: “What’s the best advice you’ve ever received?” If those sound too backward-looking, and you want to include the younger generation, why not invoke this one from Penn State’s Schreyer Honors College: “A ‘bucket list’ is a list of things that you would like to accomplish during your lifetime. Please tell us a few of the things that might be on your bucket list and explain why they are important to you to accomplish.” If your gathering is more highbrow, there is always Tufts University’s: “The ancient Romans started it when they coined the phrase Carpe diem. Jonathan Larson proclaimed, ‘No day but today!’ and most recently, Drake explained, ‘You Only Live Once (YOLO).’ Have you ever seized the day? Lived like there was no tomorrow? Or perhaps you plan to shout YOLO while jumping into something in the future. What does #YOLO mean to you?” MIT notified its early applicants of their fate on 12:14 p.m. on 12/14. As part of their

application process, students had to answer this: “We know you lead a busy life, full of activities, many of which are required of you. Tell us about something you do simply for the pleasure of it.” Another winner is Berkeley’s Haas School of Business’: “If you could choose one song that expresses who you are, what is it and why?” I asked Jane Feldgus, an attorney-turned-essayist, to survey the field and pick her favorite. She immediately identified the University of Wisconsin’s: “What goes unnoticed in your life?” (“As soon as I answer that question, it is no longer unnoticed,” Feldgus observed.) She also singled out my alma matter, Lehigh University, which this year is offering five options, including: “What’s your Bazinga moment?” Great dinner discussion, assuming everyone has watched “The Big Bang Theory” on CBS. I’d recommend you save the University of Chicago’s fare for dessert. The Windy City institution has earned a reputation for producing provocative essay questions (“They can be approached with utter seriousness, complete fancy, or something in between,” reads the applica-

tion), and this year’s were inspired by current students. Florence Chan, from the Class of 2015, proposed: “How are apples and oranges supposed to be compared?” (Possible answers involve, but are not limited to, statistics, chemistry, physics, linguistics and philosophy.) But my favorite of all the application essay topics, at least for dinner conversation, is this: “Winston Churchill believed ‘a joke is a very serious thing.’ From Off-Off Campus’ improvisations to the Shady Dealer humor magazine to the renowned Latke-Hamantash debate, we take humor very seriously here at the University of Chicago (and we have since 1959, when our alums helped found the renowned comedy theater the Second City). Tell us your favorite joke, and try to explain the joke without ruining it.” (Inspired by Chelsea Fine, Class of 2016.) Not bad for a school often tagged with a reputation for being a place “where fun comes to die.” Merry Christmas. — Michael Smerconish writes for The Philadelphia Inquirer.

Davis in 30th year as voice of the Jayhawks By Gary Bedore

Bob Davis, a 2006 inductee in the Kansas Association of Broadcasters Hall of Fame who has been named the state’s Sportscaster of the Year 13 times, isn’t the type of person to boast about his own accomplishments. “I am not the event or ‘the thing,’” Davis, the radio playby-play voice of Kansas University basketball and football, said good-naturedly. “The players and coaches are the deal. That’s how you have to approach it.” Davis, who normally chronicles the stories of others, is one of the stories surrounding KU athletics this school year. The 1967 Washburn University graduate — he was born in Iola, but also lived in Independence, Manhattan, Topeka and Hays — is more than halfway through his 30th-anniversary season covering the Jayhawks’ two highest-profile sports. “Absolutely,” Davis said, asked if the 30-year milestone classified as a personal “thrill.” “There have been a lot of great highlights, a lot of conference championships. We’ve been to eight Final Fours (1986, 88, 90, 93, 02, 03,

Kansas universiTy producT and oKlahoma ciTy Thunder forward nicK collison shaKes hands with broadcaster Bob Davis in this photo from Feb. 26, 2011, at Noble Center in Norman, Okla. 08, 12), five national championship games (88, 91, 03, 08, 12) and won two national championships (88, 08). Great highlights, great players. Three Hall of Fame coaches to work with. Two of them are already in (Larry Brown, Roy Williams), and one will be (Bill Self),” he added, starting out discussing his basketball memories at an interviewer’s request.

Davis’ first hoops assignment turned out to be one of his most eventful. KU toppled Maryland, 58-56, in a firstround Great Alaska Shootout game on Nov. 23, 1984. In cold weather, Davis was under the weather. “I was hoping I could survive the Great Alaska Shootout that opened the season because I had a terrible cold and could hardly talk,” Davis

said. “We were up there when Doug Flutie threw the ‘Hail Mary,’” added a man his peers say has a great memory. Davis and his co-workers watched on TV as Flutie led Boston College to a memorable 47-45 football victory over Miami on the first day of the shootout. But he digresses … Davis called the 50th-anniversary NCAA title game — KU’s 83-79 win over Oklahoma on April 4, 1988, in Kansas City, Mo. That game was deadlocked, 50-50, at halftime. “I knew they had to play really well, and they did. It was considered an upset,” Davis said of KU pulling out a win over an OU team that had defeated the Jayhawks twice in that 1987-88 season. “Danny (Manning) was superb. That was quite a Final Four ... Duke and Arizona were really good, too. It was such a weird deal being in Kansas City and in Kemper Arena, with two Big Eight teams and the Big Eight the host. The stars were aligned.” Twenty years later, he called KU’s 75-68 overtime victory over Memphis in the 2008 title game in San Antonio. Please see VOICE, page 3B

Chiefs: Charles needs more touches Kansas City, Mo. (ap) — There is no prescribed number of plays that Chiefs coach Andy Reid would like the ball to end up in the hands of Jamaal Charles, one of the most dynamic playmakers in the NFL. One thing Reid does know is that Kansas City would be better off if Charles got the ball more than the six times he did in the second half of Sunday’s loss to Indianapolis. Or if he didn’t seem to stray from giving him touches at the end of close games. “Obviously, 25 didn’t touch the ball much in the second half and that’s my responsibility,” said Reid, who has a well-worn reputation for favoring the pass over the run. “Within the realm of things, the 28 plays in the second half, we need to give him more of a shot than six touches.” Chiefs fans tend to agree. So do fantasy football own… we ers. need to It’s not as if Charles give him didn’t have more of a another solid shot than afternoon in a 23-7 loss. six touchHe ran for es.” 106 yards and a touchdown, — Chiefs coach and caught five passes Andy Reid

for 38 yards. But when the offense got stuck in the second half, it seemed Reid completely abandoned the run — even though it seemed to be working just fine. And even though Charles scored five touchdowns the previous week against Oakland, albeit four on receptions. Charles carried eight times for 62 yards in the first half Sunday, including a 31yard run for the Chiefs’ only touchdown. He had just five carries in the second half, while the Colts were in the midst of scoring 23 straight points, despite averaging nearly 9 yards per carry. “We were still in it the second half, but we were put in a position where we had to throw the ball a little bit,” Reid said. “We had a couple routes that were set up for him and the coverage didn’t present itself where we could use him in those, and a few options where the quarterback could keep it, and the front presented itself where he didn’t get the touch.” It’s true, and that may explain why Charles got so few opportunities against a Colts Please see ChIEFS, page 3B

TE leaving Gators for KU By Matt Tait

For the third offseason in a row, Kansas University’s football program has landed a commitment from a highprofile transfer. Former Florida player Kent Taylor, the No. 1-ranked tight end in the Class of 2012, told Jon Kirby of JayhawkSlant. com on Tuesday that he was transferring to Kansas. Shortly after the news broke, Taylor’s Twitter feed (@kenttaylor18) was flooded with congratulatory messages, and Taylor made it clear that he was thrilled about his decision.

He wrote: “Couldn’t be more excited about my opportunity to go play football for the University of Kansas! #rockchalkjayhawk” Taylor, a 6-foot-5, 223-pound athlete known for his dynamic pass-catching ability, played in six games in 2012 with Florida — including a touchdown catch in the Sugar Bowl against Louisville — but did not play in 2013 and elected to transfer at the end of the season. He is expected to sit out the 2014 season due to transfer rules but will be able to go through spring football in a few months and will have two years of eligibility remaining beginning in 2015.

Taylor joins quarterback Dayne Crist (Notre Dame), quarterback Jake Heaps (BYU), wide receiver Justin McCay (Oklahoma) and defensive end Chris Martin (Florida), former highly ranked prospects to transfer from big-time football schools to play for coach Charlie Weis at Kansas. A consensus four-star recruit out of Land O’Lakes High in Florida, Taylor was ranked as the 10th-best player in the state of Florida John Raoux/AP Photo and 54th-best prospect nationally as a senior by Ri- TighT end KenT Taylor picKs up some yardage afTer The caTch during a Florida spring football scrimmage on April 6 in Gainesville, Fla.

Jones: Romo could be cleared to play irving, TexaS (ap) — Dallas owner Jerry Jones says the Cowboys aren’t ruling Tony Romo out of a winner-take-all game against Philadelphia, because doctors could clear him after treating his back injury. Jones said on his radio show Tuesday that his quarterback has proven he can play with pain but won’t if doctors ad-

vise against it. The Cowboys (8-7) and Eagles (9-6) are playing Sunday night in Dallas’ third straight season finale against an NFC East rival with the division title and a playoff berth on the line. Romo was the starter in losses to the New York Giants two years ago and Redskins last season.

He injured his back in the fourth quarter of Sunday’s 24-23 win at Washington. Kyle Orton, who hasn’t started a game since 2011, is the backup. Jones said he had lengthy discussions with Romo and his doctors Monday about getting the 33-year-old ready to play. The owner wouldn’t discuss the details of Romo’s injury.

The Cowboys are close to bringing Jon Kitna out of retirement to serve as the team’s emergency quarterback. The team reported on its website Tuesday night that Kitna would join the team in time for practice Christmas Day. The move is pending a physical for the 41-year-old Kitna, who retired after the 2011 season.

San Diego — The Chargers aren’t asking for much. Just back-to-back Powerball jackpots. On Sunday they needed Miami and Baltimore to lose. That happened. The Chargers also needed to win, and they did, clumsily, 26-13 over Oakland. This Sunday they need the same 7-10 split. Baltimore is at Cincinnati, Miami is at home against the Jets and the Chargers play Kansas City here. If all that falls into place, they might be dangerous in the playoffs, as improving teams who are convinced of their own immunity usually are. “If we do find our way in, we will have weathered it, and we’ll have a lot of experience,” said Philip Rivers, optimist. “We’ll have the makeup of a team that will be tested and ready to go.” But … “We should have clinched it today,” said Philip Rivers, realist. “It’s our own fault.” All three teams are 8-7, but San Diego is on the wrong end of the tiebreakers. The Chargers lost to Miami, 20-16. Their conference record will be equal to Baltimore’s if everything breaks right next week, but the Ravens have a better record in common games. Many stranger things have happened. The Bengals have been terrific at home and the Jets are totally unpredictable. The Chiefs have already lost to the Chargers once, at home, and have not beaten a playoff contender since Sept. 19. Fortunately, the Chargers did not insult anyone’s intelligence by pretending they were hermetically sealed. “I usually watch the morning games from 10 to 10:45,” Rivers said. “Then I go into my routine, but I’ll take a peek. It’s human nature. “But we just want to be 9-7. If it’s our last game, so be it. We can say we won four in a row, that we finished the way teams with character finish.” This game had an unfinished feel even when it finished. There were few bleacher brawls among the bleacher heathens, although people who weren’t alive when the Raiders were relevant still dress up like black-and-silver pterodactyls. Rivers fumbled a snap. He had a “terribly underthrown” interception to Mike Jenkins. He and Keenan Allen connected for one touchdown, misfired on two others, and Allen muffed a punt. Nick Novak had to kick four bailout field goals. But Eric Weddle, now sporting the Brian Wilson look, made a juggling interception that preceded a Chargers touchdown, and the defense bottled the Raiders run game (59 yards). Rivers had 20 picks in 2011, 15 last year. Sunday’s was his 10th. The sign in his locker reads “Nunc Coepi,” which means “Now, begin.” Underneath it says, “All We Want Is All You Got,” which, this week, is directed toward the Jets and Bengals and means, “Now, finish.”

FLorida State’S JameiS WinSton (5) leaps over duke’s Bryon fields (14) for a touchdown dec. 7 in charlotte, n.c.

FSU QB Winston named AP player of year TallahaSSee, Fla. — The Winter of Winston continues for Florida State’s red-shirt freshman quarterback. Jameis Winston is the Associated Press national player of the year, adding to his cadre of postseason accolades. He’s this year’s Heisman Trophy winner, the Walter Camp national player of the year, the Davey O’Brien quarterback of the year and the Atlantic Coast Conference player of the year. Seminole football fans should send a thankyou note to Florida State’s baseball program. If not for coach Mike Martin Sr. and one of his assistants, Mike Martin Jr., Winston — a two-sport athlete — might not be preparing to lead the No. 1-ranked Seminoles against No. 2 Auburn in the BCS championship game Jan. 6 with the opportunity to bring a third national title back to the Florida State campus. When Winston won the Heisman he thanked the usual cast of family, coaches and teammates. Then there was the thanks to “Eleven” and “Meat.” Most of the country ignored the peculiar names, but Winston wouldn’t have attended Florida State without the warm relationship between football coach Jimbo Fisher and the Florida State baseball coaching staff. “Eleven” is otherwise known as baseball coach Martin Sr., who has led the program for 34 years, and “Meat” is Martin Jr. Martin Jr. was on a recruiting trip to watch Winston during his junior year of high school when he called to let Fisher know. Fisher actu-

ally had tape of Winston on his desk at the time and decided to put it in. About 30 minutes later, Fisher called Martin Jr. back and said, “Don’t let him get away.” Winston hit a game-winning home run that day.

Nets’ Pierce fined $15,000 new York — Brooklyn Nets forward Paul Pierce has been fined $15,000 for his flagrant foul on George Hill of the Pacers. Pierce was ejected in the third quarter of Indiana’s 103-86 win Monday. Hill stole a bad pass and was going in for a layup, and Pierce hustled back and appeared to be trying to wrap him up. But his arm ended up going around Hill’s neck for a clothesline tackle. Referees ruled it a flagrant 2 after review, an automatic ejection. The NBA said Tuesday that Pierce made “excessive and unnecessary contact.”


Dodgers sign three relievers loS angeleS — The Dodgers have made three moves in their bullpen, re-signing J.P. Howell and adding Chris Perez and Jamey Wright. The team announced the deals Tuesday.

When he found out I was leaving and we figured out all of the grades and how to make it work I was really excited.” Taylor, who said he was contacted by several schools upon hearing that he planned to transfer, has not yet visited KU’s campus but plans to make a trip to Lawrence on Jan. 17. “I’m going to take my visit and then I’m planning on just staying there,” Taylor told Kirby. Taylor becomes the 14th player in the current class to commit to Kansas. Three of those players have signed already. Weis said recently that KU could take as many as 26 players in the current class.

defense he was gashing. Yet in a pair of losses to Denver and a second-half collapse against San Diego, the Chiefs’ opponent this Sunday, the same story seemed to play out. Charles had 16 carries for 78 yards in a road loss to Denver, but only six attempts in the second half, when the Broncos sealed a 27-17 victory. He only had eight tries in the second half of a 41-38 loss to San Diego the following week, even though he gained 83 yards on them — for the mathematically challenged, an average of better than 10 yards per tote. In the return game against the Broncos at Arrowhead Stadium, Charles again had

eight carries in the second half, even though Kansas City was trying to protect a 21-14 halftime lead. When the Chiefs were driving for a tying touchdown in the closing minutes, they ran 10 plays and none involved Charles. Four of those plays came after first-and-10 at the Denver 13, when the Chiefs elected to throw the ball despite having plenty of time on the clock. “He’s a very good football player,” Reid said. “You want to make sure to give him enough touches. What that is, I don’t know, but you want to give it to him a few more times.” Charles, as usual, takes the high road, pointing out he doesn’t have a whole lot of say in the matter. He’ll only say that he intends to make the most of his chances, however many that may be.

“You’ve got to go out there and compete all four quarters,” he said. “As the game (Sunday) went on, they turned it up a different notch and we didn’t match their intensity. As far as fundamentals, we have to go back to the film room and correct our mistakes.” Notes: The Chiefs signed RB Eric Kettani, WR Jerrell Jackson and LB Ridge Wilson to the practice squad Tuesday. They replace WR Fred Williams, who was released; FB Toben Opurum, who was added to the Texans active roster; and TE Jake Byrne, who joined the Chargers’ active roster. ... Reid said Tuesday that starters and backups will both practice this week. The Chiefs are assured of the No. 5 seed for the playoffs, so it’s likely most starters will rest against San Diego.

“When he missed the first of the two free throws, I said, ‘It’s not over yet,’” Davis said of Memphis’ Derrick Rose bricking the first free throw, then making the second, giving the Tigers a late 63-60 lead. “By gosh, it wasn’t over yet,” Davis added. Mario Chalmers hit the biggest shot in KU history — a three with 2.1 seconds left — to force that thriller into overtime. “The coolest thing about that, and I think Bill (Self) said this ... as soon as Mario made the shot, they went into defensive mode because there was time for a ‘Hail Mary’ from Memphis,” Davis said. A last-second shot clanged, however, forcing the extra session. “When you got to overtime,” Davis said, “you had a feeling ol’ mo(mentum) had put on the Red and Blue.” Self, the man who coached KU to that title, is grateful Davis was the person on the historic call. “Bob is a consummate pro,” Self said. “I don’t

know if anybody in America has a better play-byplay guy than we have at the University of Kansas. We are fortunate to have him. He is a fun guy to work with.” Davis has plenty of memories working football games, as well. “The Orange Bowl was great,” he said of KU’s 2421 victory over Virginia Tech in 2007 in Miami. “So was the Missouri game the next year (40-37 victory at KC’s Arrowhead Stadium). Tony Sands rushing for 396 yards (vs. Missouri in 1991). Beating UCLA in Hawaii (51-30 in 1995 Aloha Bowl), the first time they beat Nebraska (40-15 in 2005).” Davis has had only four color announcers in his 30 years at KU. They are: Max Falkenstien, Chris Piper and Greg Gurley in basketball and Falkenstien and David Lawrence in football. “Whether it be a threepoint basket at the buzzer or a breakaway run for a touchdown ... nobody is going to make that sound better than Bob Davis,” Lawrence said. “Nobody can produce and make highlights sound as good as what Bob Davis can do.

“It’s exciting to be in the booth with him. Just to be there ... sometimes I get caught up into being with him on that highlight.” Perhaps the best thing about Davis is he’s such a pleasant person to be around. “You go places, and everyone knows him and has tremendous respect for him,” Lawrence said. “He has a great memory. He can remember games, remembers people he covered at Hays (working 16 years broadcasting Fort Hays State sports). He’s very humble. He’s just great to be around.” Davis, who is in the Fort Hays State Hall of Fame, is also known for the jokes he tells and the poems he writes and recites as emcee at banquets. “What people probably don’t know is how funny he is,” Lawrence said. “Sometimes he’ll wear you out before a game because you’ll laugh for hours before the game starts. It’s an honor for me to be able to call him a partner.” Davis, who said all of his color announcers have been “great,” borrowed one of the lines from his baseball sidekick of 11 years, Paul Splittorff.

New York (ap) — If the NBA had a Christmas wish, it might be for a different holiday schedule. The one that was drawn up seemed strong enough when it was released, a potentially dynamite fivegame treat from noon through night, packed with superstar scorers and championship contenders. But like an old Christmas sweater, it doesn’t look nearly as good now that time has passed. Back luck and bad play have wrecked a number of teams the league picked to showcase. Derrick Rose, Kobe Bryant and Brook Lopez are all sitting out, as are Indiana and Portland, who share the NBA’s best record. But hey, there’s two 9-18 teams and one that’s 10-16. The Miami Heat and Los Angeles Lakers got the late afternoon marquee time slot, but it’s certainly no marquee attraction now that it won’t feature a LeBron JamesBryant duel. “That’s probably not the matchup they wanted,” Clippers coach Doc Rivers said. The schedule is such a letdown that not until the fourth game will two winning teams meet, when Houston visits San Antonio. Rivers’ team travels to Golden State in the nightcap. Before that, Chicago, Brooklyn and New York all get TV time, all chosen for the honor long before anyone could have known they would sometimes look unwatchable. “Those things are done way ahead of time. You just hope for the best matchups. Unfortunately, the Derrick Rose injury puts Chicago in a tough spot. Brooklyn and New York have not played particularly well,” said Jeff Van Gundy, who will work the Heat-Lakers game on ABC. “But I still think people will watch. It’s Christmas Day, and people still care deeply about the Bulls and about the Knicks, even though they haven’t played particularly well of late.” Christmas is something of a second opening day for the NBA, often the first time a national audience begins paying attention as football nears its conclusion. The league decided to capitalize a few years back by increasing to a five-game schedule that begins at 11 a.m. CST. The Christmas games have averaged more than 33 million U.S. viewers over the last three years, so Van Gundy is probably right about the fans still tuning in, even for a matchup that looks as ugly as those sleeved jerseys the players will be wearing. “On the NFL, I’ve seen plenty of weak Thanksgiving games, but we still watch,” Rivers said. “Now it’s becoming basketball on Christmas. That’s the good part, that the NBA has found that niche.” After Chicago (10-16) and Brooklyn (9-18) meet in the opener, Oklahoma City visits New York, matching the NBA’s top

Yes, Davis also worked 17 years as a member of the Kansas City Royals broadcast team. “This can be both (fun and a job),” Davis said of his calling games. “When I did Royals games with Paul, he had the line: ‘You know, somebody has to do these games, and if we weren’t doing them we’d be watching, so we might as well be doing them,’” Davis added with a laugh. “I think like most (broadcasters), we appreciate what we’re doing.” Davis and wife, Linda, are proud parents of Scoring G FG FT PTS AVG son, Steven, who also is Durant, OKC 27 241 228 759 28.1 a broadcaster.

two scorers in Kevin Durant and Carmelo Anthony — provided Anthony’s left ankle is OK after he sprained it Monday at Orlando. The Knicks are a Christmas tradition, making their league-high 49th appearance, and the league hopes they’ll provide a big audience despite their 9-18 record. Injuries have hit hard around the NBA and the Christmas lineup is no exception. With Rose and the Lakers’ Steve Nash out, two of the six players in the league’s holiday jingle ad touting the games and the special uniforms won’t be playing. With Bryant also injured and unable to extend his NBA record for Christmas Day appearances to 16, it’s a chance for the lesser-known Lakers to enjoy the spotlight during what’s shaping up as a rare season of irrelevance for one of the league’s storied franchises. “Any time a team plays on the Christmas schedule, teams have an opportunity to display their talent — whoever is suiting up for you,” ESPN analyst Hubie Brown said. “It just seems that teams play, even though they might not be playing to a high won-loss record, they will play to their maximum potential because of the audience that is expected to watch the games on Christmas.” So maybe today one of those lowly East teams finally plays to its reputation — even if only to spare themselves embarrassment in front of viewership they may not earn again this season. “Christmas is a special day,” Brooklyn’s Jason Terry said. “This is a great opportunity to come up in here against a team like Chicago who is going to make you play hard each and every possession.”

Oregon State rolls past Boise State Honolulu (ap) — Rashaad Reynolds returned two fumbles for touchdowns, helping Oregon State beat Boise State, 38-23, in the Hawaii Bowl on Tuesday night. The Beavers (7-6) stopped a five-game slide and set several records in handing Boise State its worst loss in two months. Biletnikoff Award-winner Brandin Cooks had 60 yards receiving and a touchdown while setting a Pac-12 record for most receiving yards in season, passing Southern California’s Marqise Lee. Sean Mannion set another for passing yards, finishing 24-of-33 for 259 yards and a touchdown. Oregon State kept Boise State out of the end zone until the third quarter, well after the Beavers had opened a big lead. Reynolds had his first fumble recovery about 12 minutes into the game when Scott Crichton stripped Boise State quarterback Grant Hedricks in the end zone. The ball popped forward to the 3-yard line, where Reynolds picked it up and ran it in.

SUMMARY Oregon State 38, Boise State 23

Boise state running Back Jay aJayi, left, tries to elude Oregon State cornerback Sean Martin during the Hawaii Bowl on Tuesday in Honolulu. Reynolds tacked on another fumble return in the second quarter on his way to game MVP honors. Troy Ware caught a 6-yard pass near the sideline for Boise State, but Larry Scott punched the ball out as Ware was fall-

ing to the ground. Reynolds picked it up and ran 70 yards to the end zone. Matt Miller led Boise State with 11 catches for 206 yards and a touchdown, with most of the production coming after the game was decided.

Miller, who set a school season record with 88 catches, was the Broncos’ MVP for the game. Boise State’s most successful drive came in the third quarter after Oregon State went 94 yards and scored a touch-

down to make it 38-6. The Broncos responded with a nine-play, 76-yard drive spent partially in a hurry-up offense. Jay Ajayi took a shotgun handoff from Hedrick and ran up the middle for a 1-yard TD.

Texas search committee a waste By Randy Galloway Fort Worth Star-Telegram

Don’t try to tell me there’s a head football coach anywhere in the college world that is not interested — either highly interested or ready immediately to take the job — in being the next guy up at the University of Texas. By the way, that includes Nick Saban. Present tense, you noticed. Never say never with Saban, but at this point, I’m not betting that way. Was Saban, however, ready to hook’em out of Alabama and become the King of Austin? Yes, without question, he considered it. Stack the money high enough and he was coming. The surprise is the money wasn’t or hasn’t been stacked high enough. Yet. But back to my original proclamation that any college head football coach in America wants this Austin job. Gawd knows, I’ve never been accused of being one of those arrogant advocates of UT superiority. Personally, I like the Aggies a lot better, plus TCU and Baylor. With no ties to any of them, I can freelance when it comes to my favorites. But I laugh as I current-

ly read comments from numerous high-profile college coaches who are either dodging “the Texas question,” or flat lying when they say they have no interest. For football, that place in Austin has the most money and the best facilities, and with the name “Texas,” that relates extremely well to recruiting our most fertile in the nation high school campuses. So if not Saban, then what about David Shaw at Stanford? Again, what about any name you can name? Well, there’s also a glitch. That glitch is and will be the X-factor in this search. That glitch, by the way, emerged front and center last week. UT announced its “search committee” to find Mack Brown’s replacement. Eight names are on that list. Ian Fitzsimmons, doing talk radio on local ESPN, said the list read like the cast from Gilligan’s Island. Heavy hitters, big-money alums and/or regents are involved.

My advice for Patterson (I’m above dealing with a search committee) is to stick close to state of Texas roots. Be looking for the next head coach in your own back yard. Ninety miles north is Art Briles. That’s your man, UT. Sorry, Baylor. I’m just being honest. A friend keeps telling me it would be beneath Texas to hire a coach at Baylor. I laugh. Right now, it would be beneath Art to take the Texas job, plus, he’s got that new contract in Waco. That contract, however, has a low buyout, and at $4 million a year, a comfortable number to surpass for the UT massive hip pocket. Briles has kind of a detached personality, meaning it would be easier to keep the UT wealthy out of his living room. But mainly, it’s the football “thing” that Briles brings. He’s got the offensive brains, and for the most part, the offensive smarts to know a quarterback when he sees one. I’m still shocked Art declared Johnny Manziel as a nogo for a college quarterback (he liked him as a safety in recruiting), but that’s just one demerit on his résumé.

Army turns to former Navy assistant West Point, n.Y. (ap) — Desperate to snap its long losing streak against its archrival, Army has hired former Navy assistant Jeff Monken as its 37th football coach. Monken spent the past four seasons at Georgia Southern after learning the triple-option offense under Paul Johnson during stints with the Middies and Georgia Tech. He posted a 38-16 record at Georgia Southern and helped guide the program’s transition to the Football Bowl Subdivision from the Football Championship Subdivision ranks. “I am honored and humbled by their trust in me to lead the West Point football program,” Monken said. “More than anyone else, I want to thank the men and women who have served and continue to serve our nation in the United States Army. I am proud

georgia southern coach Jeff Monken questions a call during a Nov. 23 game against Florida in Gainesville, Fla. Army has hired Monken, a former Navy assistant coach, as its head coach. to be your head football coach. I am anxious to get started. “ Monken will be officially introduced Monday at a news conference. He replaces Rich Ellerson, who was fired last week after his fifth straight loss to Navy.

“We want a successful head coach who understands the challenges of working at a service academy, one who could help us win immediately, and one who understands the importance of West Point’s mission. We found that in Jeff,” athletic di-

rector Boo Corrigan said. “There was tremendous interest in the position nationally, and we felt there were several very qualified candidates. But throughout the process Jeff separated himself from the others. His passion, energy and strong

experience in turning around a program immediately helped him rise to the top of our list.” The 60-year-old Ellerson went 20-41 at Army and couldn’t snap the Black Knights’ losing streak against their most important rival. Navy has won 12 straight in the series, the longest run by either team. Army seemed to be closing the gap when it lost in 2011 and ’12 by a total of nine points. But this year, on a snowy Saturday in Philadelphia, Navy dominated again, winning 34-7 as Army finished with a 3-9 record. Ellerson took over at West Point after eight seasons at Cal Poly and brought the triple option back to Army. The Black Knights went 7-6 in his second year, their first winning season since 1996, and that included Army’s first bowl victory since 1985.

Longhorns must slow explosive Oregon Austin, texAs (ap) — Texas must defend a prolific up-tempo offense when the Longhorns face No. 10 Oregon in the Alamo Bowl in coach Mack Brown’s farewell. They have experience after playing Baylor in their last game. The Ducks (10-2) average 46.8 points and 573 yards, which both rank in the top three in the country. Texas (8-4) held the Bears, the nation’s highest-scoring team, to three first-half points Dec. 7 in what was essentially a Big 12 title game. But Baylor scored 17 in the third quarter and went on to win 3010. Oregon’s Marcus Mariota has been one of the nation’s most efficient quarterbacks, completing 63.1 percent of his passes and throwing for 30 touchdowns and four interceptions while running for 582 yards and nine more scores. Baylor’s Bryce Petty is the only QB with fewer interceptions (2) among those with at least 30 touchdown passes. Facing a quarterback like Petty, who also has 11 touchdowns rushing, helped prepare Texas for Monday’s matchup with Mariota. “It’s crazy that we’re about to play the same team, almost,” said junior defensive end Cedric Reed. “Those are two quarterbacks that have been in the Heisman running this year. They’re smart quarterbacks. The offense runs through them.” Texas’ best chance at slowing Oregon may be running the ball to keep the offense on the sideline, as Arizona and Stanford did in the Ducks’ only two losses. Tyler Gaffney ran for 157 of the Cardinal’s 274 yards on 45 carries in a 26-20 win that ended Oregon’s perfect season Nov. 7. Two weeks later, the Wildcats’ Ka’Deem Carey ran 48 times for 206 yards and four touchdowns in a 42-16 trouncing. Oregon had the ball for fewer than a combined 42 minutes in those two defeats. “You can see that teams that have had success against and beat Oregon are teams that have taken pride in a power running game,” senior guard Mason Walters said.

The Flying Fork

by Megan Stuke

A gift to be simple


y friend SJ and I do a cooking extravaganza every year before Christmas. We try to put together some tasties to give out to friends and family in lieu of purchased gifts, which usually end up in a closet or forgotten because, really, who needs another egg slicer? Who needed one to begin with? Some years it’s been extravagant. Two years ago I made homemade pasta, sauce, garlic confit, and pesto. Last year it was all sorts of BBQ-related sauces and items. This year I have an infant, so I had to opt for simpler fare. I just didn’t have 12-plus hours to hang out in the kitchen with SJ, and she has 100 hats to wear and a family as well, so our tasks became streamlined. Next year, we’ll be back with the big guns. I have to say, though, that our simplified offerings are possibly just as welcome and wonderful as the super fancy stuff of yore. You be the judge. First, SJ made chocolate pumpkin bread. This is like a muffin, only bigger.

SJ’s Simple Punkin Loaf 1 can pumpkin 4 eggs 1 cup oil 2/3 cup water 3 cups sugar 3 1/2 cups flour 1 Tbsp baking soda 1 1/2 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon cinnamon 1 teaspoon nutmeg 1/2 teaspoon cloves 1/4 teaspoon ginger. Blend together the pumpkin, eggs, oil, water and sugar. Then add in the dry ingredients and blend but don’t over-mix. Grease and flour pans. Bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes for small loaf pans. Longer if you do a traditional size. Note: SJ added the chocolate chips in the pans so they wouldn’t sink to the bottom of the batter. One of my offerings, which was so simple it’s almost embarrassing, was cherry chocolate sauce. I figure this stuff will be a nice topping for any sort of cheesecake, bread pudding, ice cream, even a good dipper for marshmallows or cake. Use it for fondue!

Choco Cherry Sauce 2 cups dried cherries 3 1/2 sticks butter 4 cups semisweet chocolate pieces 6 cups powdered sugar 2 cups milk 2 tablespoons vanilla 1 tablespoon framboise (raspberry extract) Pinch of salt Begin by melting the butter over medium heat. Add the chocolate chips and stir until melted. Next, alternate adding milk and powdered sugar and continue to stir until everything is wellcombined. Add more milk if you feel like your sauce is too thick, less if it’s too runny for your taste. Add in your extracts and a dash of salt. Pour into half-pint canning jars and tie with a festive ribbon. So easy, and I promise it will be a welcome change from the usual divinity. Not that there’s anything wrong with divinity. If you want to get really crazy, you can purchase or make a good pound cake and add to the gift bag for a “complete dessert.” I hope all of you are having the happiest of holiday seasons. Salute!

Celebrate new year with hot sauce By Meryl Carver-Allmond Special to the Journal-World

While superstitious Americans typically serve up blackeyed peas for New Year’s Day, I’m a big fan of the Asian custom of eating “Long Life Noodles” instead. Typically made with soba noodles — although udon are delicious too — the dish is meant to signify longevity. The noodles are never broken during cooking, and it’s bad luck to bite them off as you eat. Thus, the noodles must be slurped up whole, which can be a very entertaining meal if you have small ones or even just a group of tipsy adults. Another plus for noodles is that they’re easy. I like mine in a simple, gingery broth with chopped scallion and a dash of hot sauce. The hot sauce is the key in my book, so this year I decided to get a little more complicated and make my own. “A little” is the key phrase there, because making your own hot sauce doesn’t take much work. I happened to have a jar of dried peppers lingering in my

pantry, gifted from a friend’s summer garden, so I decided to use those rather than selecting my own. If you’re buying or ordering peppers especially for this recipe, though, you should certainly customize the peppers you choose based on how hot you want the resulting sauce. Once you have the peppers chosen, all you have to do is let them brew in some garlic and vinegar. Most recipes suggest two weeks, but if you really want hot sauce for your New Year’s noodles, feel free to cut the time down. Alternatively,

for about 30 minutes to rehydrate. Wearing gloves to protect your skin, strain the peppers from the hot water. Roughly chop them up, discarding any remaining stems as you work. Put them in a large, clean mason jar. Add 3 cloves of chopped garlic, 1 tablespoon of salt, and enough white vinegar to cover the peppers — it should take about 5 cups. Put a lid on the jar, and stash it in a back corner of your refrigerator for about 2 weeks. After the time has passed, use a blender or food processor to liquefy the sauce. If you want your hot sauce to be really the Chinese New Year is on smooth, run it through a fine Jan. 31, so why not start a batch mesh sieve to remove the pepof hot sauce now and have cel- per bits. I sieved out about half of the peppers in my sauce, and ebratory noodles twice? really liked the resulting texture — a little chunky, but not quite Homemade Hot salsa-like. Sauce Serve with a bowl of noodles to give your new year a nice 3.5 ounces dried peppers kick-start! 5 cups vinegar 3 garlic cloves — Meryl Carver-Allmond lives in 1 tablespoon salt Lawrence and writes about chickens, Put the dried peppers in a large babies, knitting, gardening, food, phobowl and cover them with very hot tography, and whatever else tickles her water. If the peppers are floating fancy on any given day at above the water, use a plate to weight them down. Let them sit

The beautiful tradition of holiday cookies


es, this space is called “Eat Your Vegetables” and we all know I implore y’all to do that as much as humanly possible. But let’s be real a second: The holiday season is most assuredly not about the vegetables. If we’re talking food, it’s about the cookies. Sugar cookies. Pinwheels. Spritz. So many beautiful, sweet beauties. So, so little time. OK, that’s not true. We have a full month’s run up of cookies from Thanksgiving to Christmas Day. Cookies, cookies every day. Cookie decorating was always a huge deal in my house. My mother makes about 10 types of cookies. Maybe more. Honestly, I’ve kind of lost track now that I don’t get to see her make them over the course of a couple of weeks in early December. Macaroons, pecan pie bars, mint chocolate fudge and the aforementioned sugar cookies, pinwheels and spritz. There are others,

Sarah Henning to be sure, changing a bit each year, but those are the classics. Since we’ve come to celebrate Christmas in Lawrence, we’ve come up with a new twist on the necessary cookie baking. My mom brings a sampling of the cookies she makes at home. And then she makes and decorates sugar cookies with my son here. The result is a family tradition that’s been kept intact for 30 years. I remember being in preschool, watching my mom cut and bake stars, trees, wreaths and candy canes. Then, once they were cool and we had a good chunk of time, we’d

My mother, on the other hand, could (and can) create endless little green sprinkle wreaths (each with their own bows), perfect red stripes to white-frosted candy canes and many other designs. Time will tell if my son is more of a natural cookie decorator than I am. He probably will be, judging by the cookies he churned out for this Christmas. Good thing we’ll be decorating them again next year. — Sarah Henning is a writer, blogger, vegetarian and mom. You’ll usually find her eating something with kale in it.

Grilled bacon-wrapped scallops

Scallops a great party food By Elizabeth Karmel Associated Press

Spiced carrot soup and peppered filet roast with parmesan-roasted cauliflower

A New Year’s Eve party menu with complex flavor that’s not hard to cook By Alison Ladman Associated Press

You’re ready to kick off the new year, and you want to do it with a stylishly delicious meal. But you probably don’t have time to master fancy new kitchen skills. Or to shop for a million ingredients. We’ve got you covered. We created a simple, elegant meal that won’t tax your time or your kitchen cred. We offer up classic French flavor in easy recipes that deliver rich flavor just right for a winter meal. Start with a spiced carrot soup, then move on to a perfectly roasted filet. Finish the evening with chocolate sorbet sandwiches, the perfect partner for the sparkling wine you’ll be drinking.

of the oil. Add the roast and sear for 3 minutes per side. Place the roast in the oven and cook for 30 minutes for medium-rare. Meanwhile, in a large bowl toss the cauliflower florets with the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil, the Parmesan, and a bit each of salt and pepper. Spread the florets on a rimmed baking sheet and roast for 30 minutes, or until tender and browned. Remove the roast from the oven, cover with foil and allow it to rest for 10 minutes before slicing. Serve with the roasted cauliflower.

Bacon-wrapped scallops are one of the most luxurious appetizers you can serve, not to mention one of the easiest to prepare. And for me, that’s a great combination. I like using big, plump Alaskan sea scallops and apple wood smoked bacon. Because there are only two main ingredients in this dish, you need to make sure you use the best quality — the biggest, freshest sea scallops you can find, and the most flavorful bacon. After that, they are so easy to grill that you hardly need a recipe.

Grilled Bacon-Wrapped Scallops

Everything tastes better with bacon! And it doesn’t get any better than freshfrom-the-ocean sea scallops wrapped with bacon. The scallops take very little time to cook, so I cook the bacon in the oven or microwave for a couple of minutes before I wrap it around the scallops. That way, I am guaranteed to get crispy bacon and tender scallops. The best sea scallops I’ve ever had are from Alaska, so ask your fishmonger for them.

Five reasons 100 new shows are launching soon By Verne Gay MCT

Do not be alarmed and do not adjust your set, either, but ... you are about to be drowned by your television. Over the next eight to 12 weeks, beginning Jan. 1, approximately 100 new shows, specials, reality series and megaevents (from the Super Bowl to the new “Tonight Show”) will launch. It’s TV’s own perfect storm — of opportunity, changing industry practices and simply more viewing. Why is there about to be so much new TV? 1. More people watch TV from January to March than at any other time of year. The TV industry has known this for years, which has led networks to add more shows. Because there’s more to watch, more viewers watch — or so the thinking goes. A basic yardstick appears to bear this out: 115.1 million people watched prime-time TV at any given moment last year, from January through March, according to Nielsen. That compares to 106 million during the summer. 2. The broadcast networks now have the clever habit of giving their hits “half” seasons, or “fall seasons,” followed by “winter seasons.” Hits like “The Blacklist” and “Scandal” recently had their “fall finales”; now the series — and a few dozen others — will relaunch. 3. 2014 has an unusual number of major events — which means more opportunities to promote new shows. The first quarter of any year is crowded with special events — from the Grammys to the Super Bowl, which have always provided a promotional platform for newcomers. But 2014 has 2 and a half weeks of the Winter Olympics from Sochi, Russia, beginning Feb. 6. That’s a reason many of NBC’s major shows arrive after, including the new “Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” (Feb. 24). A major exception: “Community” (Jan. 2). 4. Time to sweep out the flops. Here’s another reason for the influx of new programming in January — networks have broomed out the shows that haven’t worked, and need to add new ones. 5. Borrowing from the cable playbook, the broadcast networks have ordered more “shortrun” series than in past seasons. Examples include CBS’ “Intelligence” and ABC’s “Killer Women,” both arriving Jan. 7, and Fox’s “Rake” (Jan. 23).

BIRTHDAYS Pro and College Football Hallof-Famer Larry Csonka is 67. Former White House adviser Karl Rove is 63. Singer Annie Lennox is 59. Singer Dido is 42. Rhythmand-blues singer Ryan Shaw is 33. Pop singers Lisa and Jess Origliasso (The Veronicas) are 29.

Christmas my true love gave to me, six geese-alaying ($210, again, the same as last year). On the seventh day of Christmas my true love gave to me, seven swansa-swimming ($7,000, still expensive, but no more than before). On the eighth day of Christmas my true love gave to me, eight maidsa-milking ($58, still at minimum wage, the same price for the past two years). On the ninth day of Christmas my true love gave to me, nine ladies dancing ($7,552.84, a 20 percent increase in salary). On the 10th day of Christmas my true love gave to me, 10 lords-aleaping ($5,243.37, a 10 percent salary hike), nine ladies dancing. On the 11th day of Christmas my true love gave to me, 11 pipers piping ($2,635.20, slightly higher at 2.9 percent).


For Wednesday, Dec. 25: This year you often will be dealing with an assertive authority figure. Your career and community involvement become high priorities. If you are single, many people will be drawn to you. If you are attached, you often create a lot of excitement on the homefront. The stars show the kind of day you’ll have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult
