Tale of two Taylors

KANSAS GUARD TYSHAWN TAYLOR PUTS UP A THREE FROM THE CORNER as the Jayhawks work out in front of fans at the BOK Center. KU practiced Thursday in Tulsa, Okla., on the eve of the Jayhawks’ NCAA Tournament opener against Boston University.

‘Good Tyshawn’ fired up for tournament opener By Gary Bedore gbedore@ljworld.com

TULSA, OKLA. — Tyshawn Taylor has had so many personal highlights, and lowlights, in his three-year Kansas University basketball career, he has made wisecracking media wonder: “Is there a good Tyshawn and a bad Tyshawn?” “I don’t know. I think there’s just one Tyshawn that gets in trouble sometimes,” Taylor, KU’s starting point guard, said Thurs-

day, on the eve of today’s NCAA Tournament opener between KU (32-2) and Boston University (21-13). Tipoff is 5:50 p.m. at BOK Center. “I also feel I am kind of in the wrong places at the wrong time. It’s how I look at it. I think it’s part of being young. I think everybody has done some things when they are young. When I get up there in age, I think it will probably be something I talk about and laugh about,” he added of some of his stormier moments

at KU. “It’s something I can grow from, become a better person KANSAS and better VS. BOSTON man.” The “ bad” When: 5:50 p.m. Tyshawn at the today end of February was sus- Where: BOK pended two Center, Tulsa, Okla. games for TV: TBS (cable breaking team channels 51, 251) rules and lost Line: KU by 221⁄2 his starting spot in four more contests.

He enters the NCAA Tournament back in coach Bill Self ’s good graces. The 6-foot-3, 185-pounder from Hoboken, N.J., regained his starting job in the second half of last Friday’s Big 12 tournament semifinal against Colorado. He scored 15 points and dished four assists in that game, and back as starter, exploded for 20 points and five assists in the title game against Texas. “It’s how it’s been my last few years, up and down, up and

down,” Taylor said of his junior year. “I want to come in this tournament, try to start this one like I ended the last one.” Taylor, who for the season has averaged 9.1 points a game off 46.7 percent shooting, with 143 assists against 86 turnovers, has heard various TV analysts say his play could be the “key” to KU’s postseason hopes. Guard play is considered essential to success this time of year.

Robinson wears frustration on his sleeve

KANSAS FORWARD THOMAS ROBINSON, RIGHT, LAUGHS along with assistant coach Joe Dooley during Thursday’s light workout.

TULSA, OKLA. — The first of the many tattoos to decorate Thomas Robinson’s right arm was drawn when he was about 16. It reads: “R.I.P. Ali 19912007.” “He was one of my closest cousins,” Robinson said from his chair in the Kansas University locker room inside the BOK Center. “He got shot in the chest.” We’ll never know if he could have become another Washington, D.C., basketball player to work his way into the NCAA Tournament. “At the time, he was better than me,” Robinson said. “He

Still smarting from an earlierthan-anticipated exit from last season’s NCAA Tournament, when another Ali who could shoot the lights out of the gym shot the Jayhawks out of the tourney in Oklahoma City, Robinson had his arm inked with that message last summer. “You got to know what it tkeegan@ljworld.com feels like to lose before you can win,” he said.

To get here and lose would be a crushing feeling.” A familiar feeling. “We’re thinking about how we felt way back then, how we felt the last minute when we knew the game was over,” he said. “We’re going back and reading the articles saying how we were projected to win it.

Royals rough up Felix Hernandez, roll, 9-1 SURPRISE, ARIZ. (AP) — Felix Hernandez pitched his way out of trouble in the first. The rest of his outing didn’t go so well. The reigning AL Cy Young Award winner gave up six runs in four innings, hurt by some bad luck, and the Seattle Mariners lost, 9-1, to the Kansas City Royals on Thursday night. Hernandez yielded nine hits,

but four never left the infield, and three runs were unearned after two errors. He struck out seven and walked two, throwing 56 of his 80 pitches for strikes. “Eighty pitches is a lot of pitches for four innings,” Hernandez said. “It’s one of those days for everything. They hit everything. I left mostly fastballs in the middle

of the plate. That’s why they had that many hits.” Jarrod Dyson had three infield singles off Hernandez, stole two bases and scored two runs. Billy Butler homered and drove in two runs, and Brayan Pena had three RBIs. “Dyson can make people upset,” Royals manager Ned Yost said. “He can make entire defens-

es upset. He can make pitchers upset. It takes them out of their game. “That’s a component he brings. That’s what speed do.” Hernandez was impressed. “Unbelievable,” Hernandez said. “That leadoff hitter can fly. He got three ground balls and three base hits. Geez, wow. That’s part of baseball.”

COMMENTARY

Hands-off style works for Brey By David Haugh Chicago Tribune

When a Notre Dame teammate blew a routine layup midway through practice Thursday at the United Center, guard Ben Hansbrough barked as if the miss cost the Irish a trip to the Final Four. Three feet away from the histrionics, coach Mike Brey didn’t flinch. By now Brey realizes Hansbrough isn’t a guy you want to cut off in the merge lane on the Edens. But instead of overreacting to every Hansbrough hissy fit the way many college basketball coaches with control issues might, Brey sees value in creative tension. Where some egomaniacs in his profession might dwell on a weakness such an outburst suggests, Brey finds strength. “He has learned to become a leader with some diplomacy,” Brey said of Hansbrough. “You can’t hit everybody in the back of the head with a 2-by-4 all the time.” On that philosophical foundation, Brey has built a career sturdy enough to take him wherever he wants to go if Notre Dame makes a deep run in the NCAA Tournament beginning today against Akron. His secret? Brey is so hands-off, the game he coaches really should be soccer. Everybody refers to Brey’s offense as motion but it’s more like Montessori, with each player given the freedom in their basketball environment to develop independently to benefit the group. You won’t see Notre Dame players looking toward Brey in fear after a mistake — they’re too busy eyeing their next shot. While many coaches micromanage every possession, Brey worries how pulling too many strings might make his players tightly wound. “He’s a guy who definitely trusts us and in return that helps us to trust him,” guard-forward Tim Abromaitis said. Brey’s loose approach helped Notre Dame lead the Big East in three-point shooting (39 percent) and finish second in scoring (76.0). Bulls executive vice president John Paxson, a Notre Dame star from 1979-83, compared the way Brey corrects players to the way Phil Jackson used to wait until practices to make his strongest points. “One thing I’ve noticed with Mike is when a kid makes a mistake on the floor, he lets it go,” Paxson said. “He’ll address it during a timeout or substitution. That leads to kids playing with great confidence. They believe in themselves and you see that in his teams.” You see a big-time college basketball coach taking the same common-sense, plain-spoken approach he took as a history teacher at DeMatha High School 25 years ago. You see the rare guy in his business whose sense of humor exceeds his sense of importance. You see a coach secure enough in himself to realize sometimes, to reach kids, less is more. “I do think we’re in an era sometimes of over-coaching our game (and) what we’ve tried to do with our system is teach,” Brey said. “I think you want to create an atmosphere of, ‘Don’t let me down.’ And we’re letting each other down if we’re selfish or we take a bad shot.” Nobody knows more than Brey how badly Notre Dame needs a Sweet 16 appearance to avoid letting down remaining skeptics who have been reduced to complaining about his trademark mock turtleneck. But if the Irish indeed advance to San Antonio — they are 1-3 in the tournament since their last Sweet 16 in 2003 — the only complaints might be about schools trying to lure Brey away. It spoke to how fresh Brey keeps his job challenges when I asked his reaction to the perception that college basketball lacked talent. Obviously, Brey’s lack of a controlling nature shouldn’t be confused for a lack of competitiveness. “It’s a little frustrating to hear,” Brey said. “The phrase that has been out there, there are no great teams. Well, I think we’re a great team because we play like a team. I take it a little personal. ... Certainly in the climate that has become college basketball, we found a niche.” After 11 seasons of carving under Brey, it’s as deep as ever.

Baylor’s Jones to miss five games if he stays WACO, TEXAS — Perry Jones will miss the first five games next season if he stays at Baylor after an NCAA reinstatement committee on Thursday upheld an earlier ruling that declared the standout freshman ineligible. Jones is projected to be one of the top picks in the NBA Draft. As part of Thursday’s ruling, Jones must also repay at least $700 in impermissible benefits. That included a trip to California last August to attend an NFL preseason game before he began classes at Baylor.

COLLEGE BASKETBALL Pearl, Tennessee face distractions CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Bruce Pearl wanted to talk about Tennessee super freshman Tobias Harris, Michigan’s motion offense or the Wolverines 1-3-1 zone defense. Instead, the embattled Volunteers coach was peppered with questions Thursday about his job status a day after his athletic director left the door open to dumping Pearl after the season. While Pearl acknowledged the tone and timing of Mike Hamilton’s radio interview in which he said “the jury is still out” on his career at Tennessee was unexpected, he refused to entertain thoughts that this afternoon’s second-round matchup with Michigan in the West Regional could be his final one on the job. “When you put yourself in a position where you provide false or misleading information to the NCAA and you go through an NCAA investigation, you put yourself in a position where you’re going to be evaluated at the end of the year,” Pearl said. “So that’s what our status is. “The announcement (Wednesday) publicly came as a bit of a surprise. But if that’s where we are than that’s where we’re at.”

COLLEGE FOOTBALL Tressel wants to sit out 5 games COLUMBUS, OHIO — Now that the NCAA has finalized its ruling that five Ohio State football players who took improper benefits are suspended for the first five games of the 2011 season, Buckeyes coach Jim Tressel says he wants the same punishment. On Thursday night, the NCAA denied Ohio State’s appeal on behalf of the players including star quarterback Terrelle Pryor, reasserting that they must sit out the first five games this fall for selling autographed memorabilia and receiving discounted tattoos. Coach Jim Tressel had been handed a separate two-game suspension by Ohio State after a later investigation for not notifying the NCAA, his Ohio State bosses or the school’s compliance department that he was aware for more than nine months — including throughout his team’s 12-1 season in 2010 — of the players’ improper benefits.

Gabbert throws at MU’s pro day COLUMBIA, MO. — Six head coaches, several general managers and a Hall of Fame passer turned front-office executive joined scouts from each of the 32 NFL teams to watch former Missouri quarterback Blaine Gabbert as he worked out with a chance to be the No. 1 selection in April’s draft. The crowd at Missouri’s pro day Thursday included Denver Broncos vice president John Elway and coach John Fox, New York Jets coach Rex Ryan, Jim Harbaugh of the San Francisco 49ers, Cincinnati Bengals coach Marvin Lewis, Leslie Frazier of the Minnesota Vikings and Tennessee coach Mike Munchak.

NFL Goodell e-mails all active players

NEW YORK — Commissioner Roger Goodell Education secretary calls for reform wrote NFL players Thursday, outlining the TAMPA, FLA. — U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan is backing a call from the Knight Commission on Intercollegiate Athletics to toughen the academic requirements and revenue distribution system for NCAA postseason basketball. A Knight Commission analysis released Thursday found that, over the past five years, nearly $179 million was earned for athletic conferences by tournament teams that weren’t on course to graduate at least half their players. The commission developed its report with help from research by the University of Central Florida’s Institute for Diversity and Ethics that showed 10 of the 68 teams in the men’s tournament this year didn’t meet the NCAA’s Academic Progress Rate goal of being on track to graduate at least 50 percent of their players. Duncan and Knight Commission officials believe only teams that meet the threshold should qualify for tournament play. Their position was supported by the NAACP and UCF researchers. Teams that aren’t graduating players “should simply not have a chance to compete,” Duncan said during a teleconference. “If you can’t manage to graduate half of your players, how serious is a coach and the institution about their players’ academic success?” Under the NCAA’s revenue distribution plan, each game played in the NCAA basketball tournament in 2011 earns more than $1.4 million for the each team’s conference.

league’s last proposal to the union and cautioning that “each passing day puts our game and our shared economics further at risk.” Goodell ended the letter, a copy of which was obtained by the Associated Press, by telling players: “I hope you will encourage your union to return to the bargaining table and conclude a new collective bargaining agreement.” Talks between the teams’ owners and the NFL Players Association broke off last Friday, the 16th day of federal mediation in Washington. The union dissolved that afternoon, allowing players to file a class-action antitrust suit in federal court. Hours later, owners locked out the players, creating the NFL’s first work stoppage since 1987. “I’ve told my guys to take the letter and set it on fire. We’re not that stupid,” said Seattle Seahawks guard Chester Pitts, whose reaction was relayed by NFLPA assistant executive director George Atallah.

MLB Killebrew says he’s ‘feeling great’ FORT MYERS, FLA. — Hall of Famer Harmon Killebrew is taking in a little baseball as the next step in his treatment for esophageal cancer. The 74-year-old Killebrew arrived at Minnesota Twins spring training this week for his annual stint as a guest instructor and spoke to reporters Thursday about his condition. Killebrew was diagnosed with cancer in December, but said he is “feeling great” and pleased to be back in a clubhouse.

KANSAS STATE HEAD COACH FRANK MARTIN, RIGHT, TALKS with Rodney McGruder in the Wildcats’ game against Utah State. K-State won, 73-68, Thursday in Tucson, Ariz.

SOUTHEAST REGIONAL

K-State holds on TUCSON, ARIZ. (AP) — Making one mistake after another in the closing minutes, Kansas State kept giving Utah State chances. The Wildcats pulled it out, of all places, from the free-throw line. Jacob P ullen scored 22 points and hit some big free throws down the stretch, helping Kansas State hold off Utah State, 73-68, in the second round of the NCAA Tournament Thursday night, the Aggies’ seventh straight opening loss. Pullen didn’t show any ill affects from the flu that kept him out of practice Wednesday, scoring 10 points in the f irst half as f ifth-seeded Kansas State (23-10) built an 11-point lead. The Wildcats allowed Utah State (30-4) to climb back in it with a string of miscues, but closed it out from the line to squelch the 12-5 upset. A 64 percent foul-shooting team during the season, Kansas State hit 11 of 14 from the line in the final 1:08 and 24 of 28 overall to move into the third round of the Southeast Regional against Wisconsin on Saturday. Tai Wesley overcame early foul trouble to score 18 points, Brockeith Pane added 17 and Pooh Williams 16 in what was a gritty-but-disappointing finish to a superb season at Utah State. Utah State came into the tournament on a roll and looking for a win. The Aggies have been regulars in the NCAA Tournament, getting in eight of 12 years, including three straight. They just haven’t done much once they’ve gotten there, bounced after one game six straight times, 14 of 15 since 1971. Utah State, despite getting a lower seed than expected, hoped this would be the year it ended the streak, get out of that reintroduce-yourselfevery-year mode and become one of those mid-majors everyone knows about. Tenacious and disciplined, the Aggies had their best season ever behind six seniors, rolling through the WAC regular season and tournament to set a school record for wins. UTAH ST.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Nearly 11 minutes without giving up a field goal. Yep, Cincinnati’s still got that great defense. Big guy Yancy Gates on the perimeter taking — and making — three-pointers. Now that’s a bit unusual. Cincinnati’s return to the NCAA tournament after a sixyear absence is off to a successful and memorable start. The No. 6 seed took the lead for good midway through the first half Thursday night and turned Missouri’s “Fastest 40 Minutes in Basketball” into a slow-moving train in a 78-63 victory over the No. 11 seed. “A lot of people had us losing because it was our first time in,” said Gates, who had 18 points, 11 rebounds and doubled his three-point output for the season by making one in each half. “The first time in, we got a win.” One of the stingiest teams in the country held Missouri to 29 percent shooting in the first half and 38 percent for the game. The Tigers couldn’t get a basket to fall from the 7:27 mark of the first half to 16:48 mark of the second; they fell far short of their average of 81.4 points per game. “We were always fighting uphill,” Missouri coach Mike Anderson said. “When you’ve got guys that normally score for you are not scoring, it puts a burden on those other guys.” The Bearcats (26-8) advance to a Saturday rematch with Connecticut, a rare early-round pairing of Big East teams necessitated Nick Wass/AP Photo by the conference’s record 11 bids to this year’s tournament.

Morehead St. stuns Louisville DENVER (AP) — On the verge of seeing his unheralded, 13thseeded Morehead State program turn into something much more impressive, the coach could have called a play for his NBA-bound center or his guard who couldn’t miss. Instead, he decided to go with a dream. Executing a play that came to his coach the night before, Morehead State’s Demonte Harper dribbled patiently and watched the clock tick down. Then, he stepped up behind the three-point line and swished the shot with 4.2 seconds left Thursday for a 62-61 victory over No. 4 Louisville and the first big upset of the NCAA Tournament. “The coach said, ‘Hey, I dreamed about this last night, this exact situation,”’ Harper said. “He said, ‘I know exactly who I’m going to. I’m going to put it right in your hands, Demonte.’ He said, ‘At six seconds, I want you to attack and pull up and hit the shot.’ I hit the shot. It feels unreal right now.” After Harper’s go-ahead basket, the Cardinals (25-10) had a chance to win it, but Morehead State’s best player, center Kenneth Faried, blocked Mike Marra’s attempt from the corner. And that’s how little-known coach Donnie Tyndall, and not Louisville’s Rick Pitino, found himself on the floor of the Pepsi Center celebrating. Morehead State of Kentucky — enrollment 9,000 at the base of the Appalachian Mountains — won its first main-draw game in the NCAA Tournament since 1984 and will play No. 12 Richmond, a 69-66 upset winner over No. 5 Vanderbilt in a later Southwest region game.

MOREHEAD STATE GUARD DEMONTE HARPER (22) REACTS after the Eagles upset Louisville. Harper hit the winninig shot in Morehead State’s 62-61 victory on Thursday in Denver. “I think to be a first-round game against an in-state power, to be able to knock them off, I don’t think it’s ever been bigger than that in the history of our school,” Tyndall said. Chris Smith had 17 points for Louisville, which closed the year on its first two-game losing streak of the season.

The Cardinals played the end of the game without their leading scorer, Preston Knowles, who needed to be helped off the court after spraining his left foot with 8:51 left. “This is as tough a loss as I’ve had in coaching, and I’ve been coaching a long time,” Pitino said.

Richmond 69, Vanderbilt 66 DENVER — Kevin Anderson scored 16 of his 25 points in the second half, including a floater with 18.7 seconds remaining that helped seal 12th-seeded Richmond’s win. The Spiders (28-7) sprang the second upset of the day at Pepsi Center. Fifth-seeded Vanderbilt had a chance to tie the game with 2.5 seconds left, but Rod Odom’s desperation heave was nowhere near the hoop as time expired.

Kentucky edges Princeton, 59-57 TAMPA, FLA. (AP) — Brandon Knight missed his first seven shots and even found himself on the bench in the f inal minute against Princeton. His confidence could have been shaken. His ego could have been bruised. After all, he was a freshman playing in his first NCAA Tournament game. Then again, Knight’s no ordinary newcomer. Held scoreless for more than 39 minutes, Knight made a driving layup with two seconds remaining to lift No. 4 seed Kentucky to a 59-57 victory over 13th-seeded Princeton on Thursday. “I have all the faith and confidence in the world in him,” coach John Calipari said. “He’s not afraid to make a play. Guys like him aren’t afraid to miss.” The Tigers (25-7) shut Knight down much of the game, doubling him on drives, putting a hand in his face on the perimeter and contesting every shot. A day earlier, Calipari proclaimed, “You can’t count on freshmen.” He pulled Knight down the stretch in favor of a taller defender. But with the game on the line, Calipari put the ball in Knight’s hands. “If we lose that game, the season’s over,” said Knight, who grew up about four hours south in Fort Lauderdale. “I would have been happy as long as we won, no matter who hit the shot. I was just fortunate enough to be in that situation to help my team get that win. “Not making shots — it happens sometimes. I’m not going to sit here and focus on it. You know, move on. I’m just happy we won as a team.”

TULSA, OKLA. — It’s a simple task in terms of instruction and far more difficult in its execution. This week in practice, Boston University forwards Chris Kurz and Jeff Pelage were asked to emulate Kansas University’s Morris twins, Marcus and Markieff, in preparation for tonight’s meeting with Kansas in the f irst round of the NCAA Tournament. The reports on how they looked varied, but both took the challenge of impersonating the potential first-round NBA Draft picks with equal doses of intensity and pleasure. “It’s a great challenge to try to simulate the Morris twins in practice,” BU coach Patrick Chambers said. “They did the best they could, though. I give them a lot of credit. They had some fun with it, but they definitely competed.” Though playing like KU’s All-Big 12 twins was tough, it came easier for Kurz, a 6-foot8, 210-pound forward, because of where he grew up. “I played against them all throughout high school and AAU,” said Kurz, one of four Philly natives on BU’s roster. “Actually, a bunch of us went out to this camp in Atlanta, Ga., and I got to know Marcus and Markieff a little bit there. We had a great time.” Knowing them is one thing. Playing like them is another. So how did Kurz draw the assignment of spinning and soaring, shooting and scoring like Marcus Morris, his potential All-American counterpart?

KANSAS FORWARD MARCUS MORRIS, RIGHT, WATCHES the Kentucky-Princeton game as his brother Markieff Morris takes questions from media members in the locker room during Thursday’s practice and news conference at the BOK Center in Tulsa, Okla. “Well, because I’m big and I have a few guard skills, too,” he said. “Obviously, I’m not the player that he is, but I just tried to do as much as I could in the high post, with the highlows, just tried to do all I could to help this team get ready.” According to teammates, Kurz handled the chore admirably. “He doesn’t give himself much credit, but I thought he did a great job of imitating the types of things we’ll be exposed to, what types of moves he might make, his tendencies,” said junior center Jeff Pelage, who played the role of Markieff. “He really studied him and looked at his

game, and I think he did a great job.” That’s the consensus opinion of BU’s Philly guys — which includes Chambers — when talking about the Morris twins. When not matched up with them in the NCAA Tournament, Kurz said he found himself cheering for Kansas often, just the way he does with the dozen or so other college players he knows who call Philadelphia home. “I think us Philly guys, we really try to root for each other,” he said. Added forward Travis Robinson, a freshman from Friends Central High in Philly:

Jayhawks fans of tourney, too

junior forward Markieff Morris said. Added freshman guard Josh Selby, who’s experiencing the tourney for the first time: “We want to see who wins and who loses, so I think everybody wants to watch the games. But we have to focus in, do media (interviews), practice, and I guess we have to see the scores on ESPN SportsCenter at the end of the day.” Not this one. The Jayhawks were able to watch the Princeton-Kentucky thriller play out in its entirety before taking

the floor for a light practice in front of hundreds of adoring fans. On the next possession, Kentucky freshman Brandon Knight drove the ball to the rim and hit a scoop shot off the glass to put the Wildcats ahead by two with two seconds to play. The dramatic drive drew similar cries from the Jayhawks, who did not tip their hand as to which team they were pulling for. “Like any other person in America, you want to watch the Cinderella stories and the teams that weren’t as herald-

ed during the season,” senior guard Tyrel Reed said. At the same time, a big reason these guys pay such close attention is that they know so many players on other teams. “There’s a kid named Lamont Austin who plays for Morehead State, and I didn’t realize he played for them, and he was on my Pump ’N Run (AAU) team, with (KU teammates) Travis (Releford) and Conner (Teahan),” Reed said. “So you learn some things, too.” Releford referenced the same player, whose team shocked fourth-seeded Louisville earlier in the day, but added that he also knew one of the Cardinals as well. “When the TV’s on, it’s kind of hard to keep your eyes off of it,” Releford said. After a Princeton timeout, the Tigers inbounded the ball, looking for one last miracle. As the ball reached halfcourt, a Princeton player heaved a shot toward the rim. With the shot — and the game’s outcome — hanging in mid-air, one of the twins yelled out, “You never know, you never know.” The shot fell short. Kentucky survived. Back to focusing on Boston.

well,” Self said. “It’s important key guys play well. He is a guy who can change the game and create pace and do some things others can’t. It’s important he play well. “Elijah (Johnson) started when Ty had his issues and played very well. Then Ty was lights out against Texas and played well in the Big 12 tournament. But we need them both. That’s what I tell them. We need them both. One is more a possession guard (Johnson), and the other kind of a road-runner-type guard. But we need Elijah’s athletic ability and maybe even play some of those guys together or play those two together more than we have.” Of course, ever-reliable Brady Morningstar and Tyrel Reed will be starting at guard with Taylor and the Morris twins. Morningstar likely will open defensively on America East Conference player of the year John Holland, a 6-5 senior who averages 19.2 points and 5.9 boards. “He’s going to be a tough matchup, whoever guards

him,” Morningstar said. “And you’ve got to be ready to play team defense, especially in the NCAA Tournament, because a lot of guys on different teams can score in different ways. But I’m impressed from what I’ve seen from him. He looks like he can do it all. It will be exciting to get to guard him.” Self said Holland, “is a potential pro. He can do a lot of things. He can post. He can face. He can drive it. He’s certainly athletic.” KU has a wildcard guard entering the postseason in another player expected to play in the NBA, maybe as soon as next season — Josh Selby. Selby, who has been hampered the last several weeks because of his foot injury, said he’s healthy and ready for March Madness. “It’s exciting. Tomorrow I will be jumping out of my pants. I’m not going to lie to you,” Selby said Thursday. “I saw the atmosphere on TV today. It’s crazy. I can’t wait.” Of his own upcoming performance, he said: “What’s

happened in the past is past. This is a new season for us and me. I’m coming in with a different attitude. When coach throws me out there, whatever he needs me to do, I’ll do. I think right now, one thing we have to do is stop them from scoring. From what I’ve seen on TV, Holland is very tough. They’ve got a fast point guard, too, in Irving (D.J., 6-foot freshman, 7.9 ppg, 3.6 apg). I think if our b i g s p l ay we l l a n d o u r guards play well, we should be able to do some good things.” Selby wouldn’t trade his mentor, Taylor, for anybody. “Tyshawn is fast, can defend, can get to the rack whenever he wants. He’s special,” Selby said. He’s also key to KU’s gameplan today and, if the Jayhawks win, Sunday’s battle against either UNLV or Illinois. As far as the “bad-good” Tyshawn debate, “For me, there’s only a good Tyshawn,” Selby said. “If there is a bad Tyshawn, he does a good job of not showing it.”

“All the guys in Philly pretty much played together at one point or another. Everyone that plays basketball knows each other. It’s a big city, but, basketball-wise, it feels small.” Like Kurz and the rest of the Terriers’ locker room, BU’s “T-Rob” had nothing but praise for his hometown brethren. “I always knew the twins from rec leagues, other leagues, AAU tournaments, so I’m pretty familiar with them,” Robinson said. “I must say they’ve gotten a lot better. And they’ve definitely done a great job of representing Philly. Toughness, heart and loyalty to the city.”

TULSA, OKLA. — With about five minutes remaining during Thursday’s media session, all interviews in the Kansas University locker room came to a screeching halt. “Ohhhhhhh,” was the only sound that could be heard bouncing off the walls of the cramped quarters inside the BOK Center, where top-seeded KU will take on No. 16-seed Boston University at 5:50 tonight. The reason? Princeton’s Dan Mavraides had just hit a step-back jumper that tied the game with Kentucky at 57 with 36.7 to play. For the next few minutes, reporters and players alike watched one of two televisions situated in the KU locker room, waiting to see if the 13th-seeded Tigers could knock off mighty Kentucky. Though their vertical jumps are higher and their dunking ability a tad more impressive, when it comes to the NCAA Tournament, even the Jayhawks are just like everybody else. “We’re fans, too. It’s exciting to watch games like this,”

“I’ve heard them say it a couple times. It feels good that people think that about me,” Taylor said. “It’s good people are saying that about me. At the same time, we’re so deep. If I do what I gotta do and my teammates do what they’ve gotta do, we’ll be in good shape.” Taylor acknowledges his confidence is soaring. “I had a ball,” Taylor, who took the ball to the basket repeatedly, said of last weekend’s Big 12 tourney. “My team played well. I played well. Coach was happy with us. “I had a ball,” he repeated. “It felt good. I feel this is how I want to play. There’s no better time to start that heading into the NCAA Tournament. I am going to try to keep that ball rolling.” Self won’t overstate Taylor’s importance in the 2011 postseason. “Everybody needs to play

Releford ready if needed By Jesse Newell jnewell@ljworld.com

TULSA, OKLA. — After watching Boston University guard John Holland during a team film session earlier this week, one of the Kansas assistant coaches approached sophomore Travis Releford and told him to be prepared. Though Releford has played just two combined minutes in KU’s last f ive games, he knows he could be needed as soon as today’s 5:50 p.m. game against BU. “I think there’s a good possibility I could get called,” Releford said. “And matchupwise, our size ... it’d be a great matchup.” One only needs to look at the roster to see why. Holland, the America East player of the year, is 6-foot-5 and 205 pounds. Releford’s measurables are Nick Krug/Journal-World Photos identical.

On the road in Kansas won’t experience Manhattan, Collins led his another early exit, but it’s not team to an overtime victory. the only thing that gives this Baylor and Kansas State team as upset-proof a feeling advanced to the Elite Eight. as any in the tournament. For all the right reasons, As KU coach Bill Self told Collins put too much on his the team as he pointed to big Chicago shoulders. On a one player after another, say- rare off night, he made just ing, “We’ve won without five of 16 shots and commityou,” in the locker room ted five turnovers against before the Big 12 title game, Northern Iowa. this is not a team that leaves “I never could guess what any one player feeling as if he was thinking inside his he needs to be the guy who head, but, I mean, Sherron leads the rescue every time. bailed us out so many times,” Last season, Sherron Robinson said. “He was like Collins played as if he felt he Superman. It got to the point needed to do that, and he where we started to think we did it so well Kansas took a never had to worry because 32-2 record into the tournawe had Sherron. I don’t know ment, the same record it if he took too heavy a responbrings into tonight’s first sibility with that, but I know

ourselves, in our minds, we felt like we never could lose with him, and we barely did. He was a great player.” Marcus and Markieff Morris are great college basketball players as well, but there are two of them. They never have to feel as if they’re on their own. That alone makes Kansas twice as upset-proof as a year ago. “I felt like nobody could beat us last year, even when we played bad,” Robinson said. “I just felt like nobody could beat us. That’s the attitude we had coming into the tournament. Coming into this year’s tournament, that whole thought that we can’t be beat is out the window. We know that anybody’s capable of being beat.” Looking back, what does he think of the “nobody could beat us,” attitude of a year ago?

“From my experience, I think it’s a horrible attitude to bring this time of year,” he said. “I mean, you want to go out with confidence, but not when you overlook anybody and think you can’t be beat.” Still, there is more to it than that in terms of KU having what it takes to avoid an early upset, and some of it has to do with how well Robinson and his best friends have dealt with his multiple personal tragedies. In less than a month, he lost his grandmother, grandfather and mother. Robinson revealed that indirectly when asked to name the biggest difference between this year’s team and last year’s. “We’re missing X (Xavier Henry), Sherron, Cole (Aldrich). Players stepped up to a tremendous level, starters and bench players,” Robinson said. “I would say

the biggest difference is we’re a lot closer.” He stopped himself, realizing that might be construed as him saying last year’s team wasn’t close. He didn’t mean that. Adversity brings close people closer together, as any family that’s experienced tragedy can attest. “Not a lot closer,” he corrected himself. “But it goes beyond where we were with how close we are, especially with all we dealt with this year. It’s definitely helped us.” Robinson is close with all his teammates, particularly Marcus and Markieff Morris. They all have felt his pain and contributed to soothing it. “They were the main reason I got through it,” Robinson said of teammates. He added, “she’s always with me,” of his mother. And his sister, Jayla, 7 and living

in Washington, D.C., is always just a phone call away. “I talk to her pretty much every day,” he said. “She just tells me what she did during the day and how school’s going.” He said they don’t talk much hoops. “She doesn’t understand too much about it,” Robinson said, smiling. “She knows I have games and stuff like that. It means the world to have the support from her, even though she’s 7.” Robinson’s the best rebounder Self has coached in eight seasons at Kansas, the school’s best since Nick Collison and Drew Gooden. To see how happy Robinson is, how much lust he has for life, is to realize he’s an even better rebounder in his personal life than on the basketball court.

BOGOTA, COLOMBIA (AP) — The U.S. university where Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos earned his economics and business degree is inviting him to attend events marking the 50th anniversary of its School for Latin American Studies. Bernadette Gray-Little, chancellor of the University of

Kansas, extended the invitation Thursday during a meeting in Bogota with Santos. Santos graduated from the university in 1973. Gray-Little says Santos has not given an answer yet, but she is optimistic he will visit the Lawrence campus. In her words, “I think he wants to come.”

have been the Athletics Director at the University of Kansas for just a short time, but I truly feel like I have been a part of the KU family for much longer than that. My mind has wandered these last few weeks back to the years I spent as a Zenger youth in Lawrence. My earliest and fondest memories involve rooting on the Jayhawks in Allen Fieldhouse and Memorial Stadium. I will be forever grateful to former KU Chancellor Gene Budig, who convinced me in the early ‘90s to pursue a Ph.D. in Lawrence. That allowed me to work with great educators like Ed Meyen, Del Shankel and countless others. I experienced first-hand the greatness of KU. Now, as we settle in for March Madness, I cannot help but pause and convey to you my humble thanks and pride that Chancellor Gray-Little selected me to be a part of all of this. Over the last several weeks we have watched with delight and wonder as Coach Bill Self’s basketball team stormed back from two games behind to win the Big 12 Conference regular-season title outright. That’s an amazing seven straight championships — an unheard of feat in today’s world of the “power conferences.” We watched with pride as the Jayhawks avenged their in-season loss to Texas, defeating the Longhorns in the Big 12 Championship final. That’s four of the last five Big 12 tournament titles the Jayhawks have won — another terrific feat. Then we watched as the NCAA Basketball Committee validated KU’s outstanding season by awarding the team

OPEN LETTER TO JAYHAWK NATION

I

Zoey Russtiell and her cousin Cadence Healrd got to spend a day of their spring break watching green horses, flash mobs and floats covered with aliens and hula dancers. It’s standard for a St. Patrick’s Day Parade. The girls were among thousands of Lawrence and area residents dressed in green who poured into downtown in 70-degree weather for the annual event. This year’s parade was the culmination of months of fundraising to benefit

a No. 1 seed — the fourth time in the last five seasons that Coach Self and his staff have led their teams to that distinction. (We should all take time to appreciate the enormity of that accomplishment! In this era of outstanding players leaving college early to play professionally, the best college basketball staff in America has successfully maintained KU among the most elite of college programs.) We should all be proud of our student-athletes, who have overcome the ultimate emotional adversity this season en route to yet another Big 12 Championship. The way the team and the entire Jayhawk Nation surrounded Thomas Robinson’s family was inspiring. And, having lost three players from last year’s squad to the NBA, who could rightfully have expected the kind of season we’ve witnessed? It happened because of the dedication, pride and focus displayed by these terrific student-athletes. With the regular- and conference-tournament seasons behind us, we turn our attention to the third season — the Championship season. This is KU’s 40th appearance in the NCAA Championship and 22nd in a row. No other program in America is currently riding such a streak. Nothing for me can compare to the breathtaking history and tradition of Kansas basketball, and I am honored that I can now enjoy this experience as part of the KU family. As we traveled throughout the state of Kansas in recent weeks, I was repeatedly reminded of the great love and passion that our fans feel for KU and the Jayhawks. Now, as we head to Tulsa and hopefully beyond, I look forward to many more reminders. So let’s enjoy the journey together. Go Hawks! Rock Chalk! Sheahon Zenger

COMING SATURDAY We’ll tag along with a group of Armenian officers as they tour the city and Kansas University.

Senators endorse budget close to Brownback’s plan T O P E K A ( AP ) — A Kansas Senate committee endorsed a proposed state budget on Thursday that is similar to a spending plan outlined by Gov. Sam Brownback but that calls for a slightly less severe reduction in base aid to the state’s public schools. The Ways and Means Committee unanimously approved its $14 billion budget for the fiscal year beginning July 1, a plan that would eliminate a projected $493 million shortfall without raising taxes. But the state still wouldn’t have much of a cushion should revenues be less robust than anticipated. The spending plan drafted by the committee would leave less than $8 million in cash reserves at the end of June 2012. The committee’s endorsement of the budget sends the measure to the Senate, and its leaders hope to have a debate on it next week. The House Appropriations Committee is drafting its own proposed budget.

“We did the best we could with what we had,” said Senate committee Chairwoman Carolyn McGinn, a Sedgwick Republican. “I think people will — eventually, after we get out of here — see that significant cuts were made.” Last year, lawmakers increased the state’s sales tax to avoid the kind of reductions they’re considering this year, particularly for public schools. But the state still faced a budget shortfall going forward because of the loss of federal economic stimulus dollars, and Brownback and many of the Republicans who control both chambers of the Legislature have promised not to increase taxes. A key recommendation in the Senate panel’s budget is an approximately 5.6 percent cut in the state’s base aid to its 289 school districts, or about $226 per student. Brownback had proposed a steeper cut of $232 per student, but senators worked to find savings in other programs to shift into schools. Under the Senate plan,

base aid would drop from $4,012 per student to $3,786. The reduction is likely to have local school boards considering layoffs this spring. “It’s an ugly budget,” said Sen. Jean Schodorf, a Wichita Republican who serves on the budget committee but is also chairwoman of the Senate Education Committee. “We had to make tough choices.” But the Senate budget committee, like Brownback, is planning to cover the increasing costs associated with social services, particularly Medicaid, which pays for health services for the poor and needy. And the plan does meet a demand from the federal government that the state spend an additional $26 million on schools’ special education programs, or face the loss of a similar amount of federal funds each year into the future. ● For more news from the Kansas Legislature, see page 6B.

Home show opens tonight By Mark Fagan mfagan@ljworld.com

Exhibitors at this weekend’s Lawrence Home Show understand that folks don’t necessarily have a bunch of money to spend these days. That’s why they’re emphasizing the savings that homeowners can enjoy by spending a few dollars — OK, even a few hundred or few thousand — to boost energy efficiency right where they live. “It’s a payback,” said Greg Rau, president of Apple Tree Homes Inc. and president of the Lawrence Home Builders Association, the event’s organizer. “Things don’t have

to ‘cost.’ They can pay you back after a number of years.” From energy-eff icient lighting to recycled-cellulose insulation to geothermal heating systems, builders and vendors will be displaying their best products, services and methods for helping people make the most of what often are their largest investments: their homes. Here’s the schedule for the Lawrence Home Show, at the Jayhawk Tennis Facility — formerly FirstServe Tennis Center — at 5200 Clinton Parkway: ● 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. today. ● 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday. ● 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday.

In all, 75 exhibitors are scheduled to take part, covering all aspects of a home’s construction, remodeling or maintenance. “Everything that would go on a home, in a home or around a home is there,” Rau said, noting that “sustainability” would be a common theme at the show. Admission is $5 for adults and free for children. Coupons are available at the association’s website, LHBA.net, and on the front page of today’s JournalWorld. — Schools reporter Mark Fagan can be reached at 832-7188.

Many attendees were children from area schools, including Eudora, who were on spring break this week. The Lawrence school district’s spring break is next week. Zoey, 6, who was in town from Eudora with Cadence, 7, of Raytown, Mo., the three horses dyed green were what she liked best. But Cadence disagreed. “When they had all the band go by,” she said. A typical marching band was in the parade, as well as a group from Americana Music Academy, a bagpipe band and a rock band. Ferris Bueller even made an appearance on a float decorated similar to the one in the 1986 movie “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.” People dressed as Free State beer bottles danced to Stevie Wonder music, while motorcyclists dressed as aliens rode to “Rocket Man.” Jonah Hoke, 4, admired the variety of vehicles at this year’s parade. Jonah, of Lawrence, particularly liked a brown classic car. “It had cool wheels,” he

said. The event was a family affair, with many people introducing young children to the parade scene. Amy Brown, who now lives in Eudora, grew up in Lawrence and brought her daughter Katie, 2, to the parade. She remembers attending the parade years ago if the weather was nice. “When I was a kid we used to come out,” she said. — Reporter Brenna Hawley can be reached at 832-7217.

ICE makes two Lawrence arrests U.S. Immigration officials said last week they arrested two Mexican nationals who had previously been deported and were working for a Lawrence paving company. Gail Montenegro, a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokeswoman, said agents during a “targeted enforcement action” March 10 made the arrests in Topeka. They were employed by Sunflower Paving Inc., she said. One of the suspects was a convicted criminal who had been deported twice, and another was previously deported and illegally reentered the United States, which is a felony, Montenegro said. Both would remain in ICE custody pending removal from the country. Jeff Engroff, Sunflower Paving’s president, said Thursday the two people arrested were no longer employed there. He said the company uses the E-Verify system to

check every potential employee’s eligibility before they start work and that the company was surprised by the arrests last week. ICE agents at the time also cited two other Sunflower employees for immigration violations, and they were given notices to appear before a federal immigration judge, Montenegro said. Engroff said Thursday both of those employees have been allowed to return to work because problems with their paperwork have been taken care of and they were cleared.

Workplace injuries drop 12 percent in 2009 TOPEKA — Kansas labor officials say nonfatal workplace injuries in Kansas fell by 12 percent in 2009, the most recent year the statistics are available. The Department of Labor says the Survey of Occupational Injuries and Illnesses showed the state’s nonfatal workplace injury rate fell to 4.1 cases per 100 full-time workers. That’s down from 4.5 cases per 100 in 2008. Among its findings, the report says the construction industry sector saw the sharpest drop with a 29 percent decline from 2008 to 2009. It also says workers 45 to 54 years old accounted for 26.1 percent of all injured and ill workers, followed by the 35to-44 age group at 24.9 percent. Kansas Labor Secretary Karin Brownlee says she is encouraged by the new data.

KCK powers school buses with natural gas KANSAS CITY, KAN. — The Kansas City, Kan., School District has added 47 buses that run on an alternative fuel — compressed natural gas — rather than imported diesel. District officials say the buses are expected to cut fuel costs by more than one-third and significantly reduce maintenance costs. The compressed natural gas vehicles represent half of the district’s largest buses and will replace one third of its fleet. The Kansas City Star reports that the $7 million project was paid for in part by a $4 million Department of Energy grant. The district covered the remaining costs. A federal tax credit will pay for 50 cents per gallon of natural gas. Overall, the district expects to see a $1 per gallon cost savings in compressed natural gas versus diesel.

County OKs $187K for jail surveillance upgrade

1 | WASHINGTON, D.C.

By Brenna Hawley

Senate sends funding bill to Obama Congress approved an additional $6 billion in spending cuts Thursday, passing legislation to keep the government running through April 8 and allow time for talks on a larger package of reductions demanded by Republicans. “The president is optimistic that Congress can get this done,” White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said in a statement. The measure brought the total of cuts to $10 billion since Republicans took control of the House in January on a promise to rein in the federal government. It cleared the Senate on Thursday on 87-13 vote one day after passing the House. Administration officials have already met with top aides to House Speaker John Boehner and Senate Majority Leader Harry, Reid, D-Nev. to discuss a compromise package of cuts that would be included in a longer-term bill funding the government for the six months remaining in the budget year. The House has passed a bill calling for $61 billion in cuts, but it lacks enough support to pass in the Senate, and President Barack Obama has threatened to veto it.

House votes to cut off funds for NPR The House on Thursday voted to end federal funding to National Public Radio. Republican supporters said it made good fiscal sense, and Democratic opponents called it an ideological attack that would deprive local stations of access to programs such as “Car Talk” and “All Things Considered.” The bill, passed 228-192 along mainly partisan lines, would bar federal funding of NPR and prohibit local public stations from using federal money to pay NPR dues and buy its programs. The prospects of support in the Democratic-controlled Senate are slim. Seven Republicans broke ranks to vote against the bill. NPR received almost $5 million in federal funding in fiscal year 2010. In that year its revenues also included $2.8 million in dues and $63 million in programming fees from local stations, its largest single source of revenue. Under the bill, stations would still be allowed to buy NPR programs using private funds and use federal funds to produce their own programs.

Haiti’s Aristide heads home, ending exile Declaring the “great day has arrived,” JeanBertrand Aristide said farewell to South Africa Thursday, then boarded a plane for Haiti, where he can expect both adoring crowds and probing questions about his intentions. U.S. President Barack Obama had tried to keep the hugely popular but controversial figure away from his country until it holds a presidential election this weekend, a vote many fear will be destabilized by the presence of the former Haitian president. Aristide’s lawyer Ira Kurzban has said Aristide will be back in Haiti by noon today. Aristide addressed about 50 reporters in several languages from South Africa and elsewhere on the continent at a small airport in northern Johannesburg that often handles charter flights. South African foreign minister Maite Nkoana-Mashabane accompanied him, his wife Mildred and two daughters to the airport to see them off. Michaela, 12, and Christine, 14, have spent half their lives and their most formative years in exile. 3 | NEW YORK CITY

Diet Coke outfizzes Pepsi as No. 2 soda Coca-Cola is winning over America’s soda drinkers. Diet Coke bubbled up into the second spot in the U.S. soft drink market, ending Pepsi’s decades-long run as the perennial runner-up to regular Coca-Cola. Coca-Cola sold nearly 927 million cases of its diet soda in 2010, to Pepsi’s 892 million, a report by trade publication Beverage Digest released Thursday said. Diet Coke was nearing a virtual dead heat with Pepsi a year earlier. Regular Coke remains the undisputed champion at 1.6 billion cases. For Coke, wresting the No. 2 spot from Pepsi capped a year in which it took more of the soda business from its rival. Diet Coke’s rise reflects a long-term trend toward diet sodas. Ten years ago, only two of the top 10 were sugar-free. Now, four are on the list: the diet versions of Coke, Pepsi, Mountain Dew and Dr Pepper.

De Soto man experiences Japan quake while visiting daughter By Laura Herring lherring@desotoexplorer.com

Pictures started shaking on the walls, the blinds rattled and a small, egg-shaped clock on the coffee table danced about until it nearly fell to the floor. This was the scene in the Tokyo apartment of Jessica Brack, a 2007 Kansas University graduate and the daughter of Graham and Carrie Gordon of De Soto, as an earthquake struck March 11. Graham Gordon was visiting his daughter, who lives on the Naval Air Facility Atsugi base with her husband, naval lieutenant junior grade Ryan Brack. “My wife and I lived in Japan for a number of years when I was in the Navy, so I’d experienced earthquakes before,” Gordon said. “I realized this one was different when it lasted so long. Things were shaking for at least two to three minutes.”

Gordon and his daughter, who took shelter in the door frame to the apartment’s hallway, were not hurt during the quake. Back in De Soto, Carrie Gordon, Graham’s wife and Jessica’s mother, woke up to news of the devastating earthquake in Japan on CNN. “I was worried until I saw that commercial airlines were still landing in Tokyo, then I knew they had to be OK,” she said. “Then (CNN) showed the map of where the quake hit the hardest, in the north, and I knew they had to be safe in Tokyo.” With some difficulty, Graham and Jessica got a call through to Carrie in the states that same day. Graham Gordon returned to the States on Monday, while his daughter stayed behind with her husband, her job and her new friends.

For the first time, Earth has a regular orbiting eyein-the-sky spying on the solar system’s smallest and strangest planet, Mercury. NASA’s spacecraft called Messenger successfully veered into a pinpoint orbit Thursday night after a 6 1/2-year trip and 4.9 billion miles and tricky maneuvering to fend off the gravitational pull of the sun. It is the fifth planet in our solar system that NASA has orbited, in addition to the Earth and the moon. “It was right on the money,” Messenger’s chief engineer, Eric Finnegan, said. Messenger is in orbit that brings it as close as 120 miles above the planet’s surface. “This is as close you can possibly get to being perfect.” “Everybody was whooping and hollering; we are elated,” Finnegan said. “There’s a lot of work left to be done, but we are there.”

Nine students had been studying in Tokyo, and a 10th was studying at a university in Osaka, Japan, which is farther away from much of the damage. “The most important thing here, obviously, is to make sure that they’re safe,” said Jill Jess, a university spokeswoman. She said the university would

either buy the students a oneway airplane ticket home or would pay for any fees associated with exchanging an existing plane ticket home.

Two startup companies that began at Kansas University have been sold. Lawrence-based Computerized Assessments and Learning LLC has been acquired by Educational Testing Service of Princeton, N.J., one of the leaders in the field of college placement tests and other standardized assessments. Lenexa-based CyDex Pharmaceuticals Inc. has been sold to Ligand Pharmaceuticals, a biotechnology company in La Jolla, Calif., specializing in drug discovery and development. Julie Goonewardene, associate vice chancellor for innovation and entrepreneurship, said the acquisitions demonstrated the value of research done at KANSAS KU. UNIVERSITY “When these companies go out to acquire, they’re looking across the country and across the world,” she said. “I think this is important and significant and part of our mission to do world-class research.” Generally, when these sales occur, KU benefits financially in a small way because they retain a bit of equity in the companies, Goonewardene said. That’s because of KU’s investment into the research and facilities. The companies did not disclose financial details of the deals. CyDex was founded to commercialize drug formulation technologies developed by scientists at KU’s Higuchi Biosciences Center. “This transaction marks the beginning of a new chapter in CyDex’s history,” said CyDex cofounder Val Stella, university distinguished professor of pharmaceutical chemistry at KU, in a statement. “CyDex will continue delivering pharmaceutical products that improve the quality of life for patients in Kansas and around the world, and we’re proud that the CyDex story began in labs at KU.” CAL, formed by KU researchers John Poggio, Abel Leon and Douglas Glasnapp, has helped develop online assessment programs.

A $1 million donation from Salina Regional Health Center will help Kansas University’s medical school campus in Salina become fully operational. William Cathcart-Rake, director of the School of MedicineSalina, said the donation was welltimed. “Certainly in these tight KANSAS economic UNIVERSITY times, a gift of this magnitude to support a new venture like this is extremely helpful,” he said.

The tournament is estimated to generate 700 hotel room stays for the city, said Bob Sanner, director of sports marketing for the Lawrence CVB. “We’ll visit with the hotels and see what we generated” after the tournament ends, he said. There will be other benefits for the Lawrence economy, too, he said. “When you spend the night, you also have to eat,” he said. “It should generate restaurant activity, too, and probably a smaller amount of retail and shopping activity.” Because the tournament falls on the first weekend of KU’s weeklong spring break, it’s a good time for a boost to the local economy, Sanner said.

on private donations to help bridge the gap, he said. The budget for the new program has been something of a “moving target all along,” he said. Salina Regional Health Center has also supported the program in a number of other ways, including providing a space for the school, and defraying utility and maintenance costs, Cathcart-Rake said. Other donations to the school have included $75,000 from Russell physician and KU graduate Earl Merkel and his wife, Kathleen, and $225,000 from the Salina Regional Health Foundation. The KU School of Medicine has also expanded its campus in Wichita from a two-year to a four-year medical program.

“We talked a lot about whether (Jessica) should come home then or even yesterday but she was torn,” Graham Gordon said. “She felt a responsibility to stay with her friends and her job, so she did.” Despite Jessica Brack’s wishes to remain in Japan, the U.S. military has different plans. Her parents said that Jessica, along with all U.S. military dependents in Japan, will be evacuated to the states sometime in the next few days, most likely due to the threat of nuclear disaster. “Right now we’re dealing with a lot of unknowns,” Carrie Gordon said. “We don’t know when she’ll be sent home, where exactly she’ll be sent or how long she’ll have to stay.” In addition to the stress of an evacuation, Brack’s husband will remain in Japan along with the rest of his active squadron. Ryan Brack is a helicopter pilot working on naval relief missions. “I know Jessica is wonder-

ing when she’ll see Ryan next, but at least she’ll be able to email him on the ship,” Carrie Gordon said. “This really isn’t any worse than any other mission he’s been on. He’s had a busy year at this post.” The Bracks have been stationed in Tokyo for about a year. His assignment to Atsugi is to last another two years. “Jess was just home for a visit in January; she didn’t plan on coming back again until the coming fall,” Carrie Gordon said. “As soon as they get the ‘all-clear’ sign, she’ll go back (to Japan), but who knows when that will be.” For everyone in the family, not knowing what the future holds is the hardest part of a bad situation. “What’s happening with these nuclear reactors is just terrifying. We feel terrible for the people of Japan and all that they’ve endured,” Graham Gordon said. “I hope they can get a handle on things and that Jessica will just get home and we’ll get things figured out, but we’ll just have to wait and see.” — De Soto Explorer reporter Laura Herring can be reached at 913-585-1616.

Effort to repeal sales tax fails By Scott Rothschild srothschild@ljworld.com

T O P E K A — In what was dubbed “tax day,” many conservative Republican House members on Thursday voted to repeal the temporary 1cent sales tax increase that was approved last year. But that effort failed. Then many of them voted with the Kansas Chamber of Commerce to make the sales tax increase permanent and use it to help phase out the corporate and individual income tax. That failed too. Rep. Lance Kinzer, ROlathe, urged the House to repeal the sales tax increase. “We need to undo the mistake,” Kinzer said, arguing that the increase has hurt businesses, especially those on the Kansas border near Missouri. He also said the November election, which increased the House Republican majority to 92 members — the largest in more than 50 years — signaled voters

wanted to get rid of the tax increase. But supporters of the tax increase said it was needed to avoid destructive cuts last year, and if it were repealed would deepen the current budget deficit of $500 million to $900 million. The bill to repeal the increase failed, 3980. Gov. Sam Brownback, a Republican who was elected in November, has criticized the sales tax increase but said he didn’t want it repealed. Last year, the Legislature increased the state sales tax from 5.3 cents per dollar to 6.3 cents per dollar with a portion of the increase helping to pay for the new state transportation plan. Under the law, the state sales tax will decrease to 5.7 cents per dollar in 2013. Later, the House considered a bill, sought by House Republican leaders and backed by the Kansas Chamber of Commerce, that would have made the 6.3 cent sales tax rate permanent and used

Senate panel modifies voter ID bill

T O P E K A ( AP ) — A Kansas Senate committee endorsed an election fraud bill Thursday after members rewrote legislation from Secretary of State Kris Kobach to delay the proposed start of his plan to require anyone registering to vote for the first time to prove they are a citizen. The Ethics and Elections Committee also stripped the measure of provisions Kobach sought to increase penalties for some election crimes and give the secretary of state’s office the power to file and prosecute election fraud cases in state courts, along with the attorney general and county prosecutors. But the committee kept intact a proposal from Kobach to require voters to show photo identification at the polls, starting next year. That provision would make Kansas the 10th state with a photo ID requirement, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures. The proof-of-citizenship — Statehouse reporter Scott Rothschild can be reached at 785-423-0668. requirement would take

revenue from it to phase out the corporate and individual income taxes. Rep. Richard Carlson, R-St. Marys, and chairman of the House Taxation Committee, said the proposal would attract more businesses and base more of the tax structure on consumption instead of productivity. But opponents saw it as a way to starve government funding of crucial services and shift more of the tax responsibility onto poorer Kansans. Rep. Jerry Williams, DKansas City, described it as “Robin Hood in reverse,” arguing the higher state sales tax rate hurts the poor because the tax is applied to essentials, such as food. That bill died 56-61. The House did advance a bill that allows businesses to deduct from Kansas net income the cost of certain business and machinery.

Drive to restrict adult businesses stalls TOPEKA (AP) — A push in the Kansas Legislature to impose new restrictions on strip clubs and other sexually oriented businesses stalled Thursday because a Senate committee wants to leave the job to cities and counties. The Federal and State Affairs Committee voted against advancing the proposed Community Defense Act to the full Senate for debate. The panel’s voice vote didn’t kill the bill, but it remains stuck, despite strong support for the measure in the House, which approved it last week. The legislation would limit the hours and location of adult businesses, ban total nudity inside them and impose a “no touch” rule for employees and customers. But strip clubs and adult cabarets still would be allowed to serve alcohol, a key concession to club owners meant to ease its way to passage. As the bill’s title implies, supporters argue they’re protecting communities from crime, blight and other problems linked to adult businesses, especially in

clusters. But senators said cities and counties should impose regulations that work best for them, rather than having the state impose one set of rules. “Local governments are capable of doing that,” said Sen. Tim Owens, an Overland Park Republican who served on his hometown’s city council for two decades. “Every different local area may be in a different situation. You have some very small communities where one of these places would impact them a lot differently than in a metropolitan area.” Supporters argue the bill is necessary because small communities often don’t have the resources to fight adult businesses if their owners are willing to challenge restrictions or adverse zoning decisions in court. Backers have presented information from numerous studies linking adult businesses to problems, some dating back decades. Phillip Cosby, executive director of the Kansas Cityarea office of the National Coalition for the Protection of Children and Families,

questioned whether the committee could adequately review those studies as it squeezed its hearing, discussion and a vote into little more than an hour. “They waded through 40 years of evidence of negative effects and made a subjective call,” said Cosby, also a retired Army master sergeant from Overland Park. “I can’t imagine how they could have weighed that with intellectual honesty in such a short amount of time.” Cosby said he and other supporters will look for ways to get around the committee’s resistance. Senate rules allow its members to pull a bill out of a committee over its objections, but such a move requires 24 of 40 votes, rather than a simple majority of 21. Supporters also could try to amend the bill’s provisions into other legislation as well. The bill’s restrictions would apply not only to strip clubs, adult cabarets, book and video stores, shops that sell sex toys and adult arcades, but also to non-academic semi-nude modeling

studios and “sexual encounter centers,” defined as business that allow patrons of the opposite sex to wrestle or tumble together semi-nude. The measure would require adult businesses to remain closed from midnight to 6 a.m. and prohibit new businesses within 1,000 feet of the property line of existing similar businesses or any school, library, day care center or house of worship. Semi-nude dancers at clubs would have to keep at least 6 feet away from their customers. “The whole concept is to close them,” said John Samples, the owner of two Topeka-area clubs. “They can talk whatever they want — but that’s the reality.” Samples said if clubs go out of businesses, employees who are trying to provide for their families will be forced into seeking social services from the state. He also said his clubs are a safer environment for his workers than bars because of the security measures he uses.

BUSINESS AT A GLANCE

Dealers raise prices of some cars because of Japan crisis DETROIT (AP) — The disaster in Japan could slow shipments of popular cars like Toyota’s Prius to auto lots. And many dealers are already taking advantage of expected shortages to raise prices. Buyers will now typically have to pay sticker prices, instead of enjoying discounts that had been the norm for small cars and hybrids imported from Japan. Besides the Prius, models that suddenly cost more include Honda’s Insight, Fit and CRV; Toyota’s Yaris; and several Acuras and Infinitis. Small cars such as the Yaris, with a $12,955 sticker price for a base model, and the Honda Insight, priced at $18,200, are losing their typical discounts of 5 percent to 10 percent. The price increases “will last weeks, if not months,” says Jesse Toprak, vice president of industry trends and insights for TrueCar.com, a website that tracks what cars sell for at dealerships. Dealers are acting on the possibility that disruptions in

DILBERT

car deliveries from Japan will cause a shortage of higherdemand vehicles. Demand will exceed supply. So they won’t cut deals on those cars, Toprak says. Car buyers rarely pay sticker price, also known as the MSRP or Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. Companies typically offer discounts of a few hundred to a few thousand dollars off the MSRP. Many also provide low-rate financing. On top of all that, there’s typically room for further negotiation. Toyota, for example, had been offering a $500 rebate on the Prius, plus zero-percent financing. And it offered a $1,000 rebate on the Yaris. Many smaller cars and hybrids are built in Japan, where car manufacturing has mostly stopped in the aftermath of the earthquake, tsunami and nuclear crisis. Toyota says it’s shut down production until Tuesday. Honda remains closed and hasn’t said when its plants will restart. A shipment of

more than 1,000 Nissan and Infiniti cars that was headed to the United States was destroyed in the tsunami. At least one hybrid battery maker is shut down, threatening supplies of hybrid cars. “Prices have firmed up, and the tsunami is only going to help that,” says John Hawkins, a Los Angeles-area dealer who runs three Honda dealerships. Even before the disaster, dealers were reporting a shortage of hybrids such as the Prius, which had been in demand because of higher gas prices. The Prius uses a combination of electric and gasoline power and gets 51 mpg. A month ago, Dave Conant said his Toyota dealership in San Diego had 57 Prius hybrids for sale. Today, he has three or four. Priuses carry a sticker price of $23,050 for a base model. “We’re going to run out of cars,” he says. So he’s no longer willing to make a deal.

effect in 2013, instead of 2012, as Kobach proposed. He argued postponing it would only delay an effective step for keeping noncitizens, including illegal immigrants, from registering. But the rewritten bill, endorsed on a voice vote, had bipartisan support, while Democrats have opposed the Republican secretary of state’s undiluted proposals, claiming they’re likely to suppress registration numbers and voter turnout.

The House approved the bill last month, voting 83-36 for a version Kobach fully endorsed, containing his voter photo-ID and proof-of-citizenship requirements starting next year, his tougher penalties for election crimes and prosecutorial authority for the secretary of state’s office. Senators’ action mean the final version of the bill is likely to be written by negotiators for the two chambers.

G-7 countries announce currency intervention

More smoke rises from crippled nuke plant By Eric Talmadge and Mari Yamaguchi Associated Press Writers

YAMAGATA, JAPAN — Smoke billowed from a building at Japan’s crippled nuclear power plant today as emergency crews worked to reconnect electricity to cooling systems and spray more water on overheating nuclear fuel at the tsunami-ravaged facility. Four of the troubled Fukushima Dai-ichi plant’s six reactor units have seen fires, explosions or partial meltdowns in the week since the tsunami. While the reactor cores where energy is generated are a concern, water in the pools used to store used nuclear fuel are also major worries. Water in at least one fuel pool — in the complex’s Unit 3 — is believed to be dangerously low, exposing the stored fuel rods. Without enough water, the rods may heat further and spew out radiation. “We see it as an extremely serious accident,” Yukiya Amano, the head of the U.N.’s International Atomic Energy Agency, told reporters today just after arriving in Tokyo. “This is not something that just Japan should deal with, and people of the entire world should cooperate with Japan and the people in the disaster areas.” Frantic efforts were made Thursday to douse a number of units with water, and authorities were preparing to repeat many of those efforts.

HEADLIGHTS OF VEHICLES STREAM along a landscape destroyed in Friday’s earthquake and tsunami Thursday in Minamisanriku town, Miyagi Prefecture, northeastern Japan. Today’s smoke came from the complex’s Unit 2, and its cause was not known, the nuclear safety agency said. An explosion had hit the building on Tuesday, possibly damaging a crucial cooling chamber that sits below the reactor core. Last week’s 9.0 quake and tsunami in Japan’s northeast set off the nuclear problems by knocking out power to cooling systems at the reactors. The unfolding crises have led to power shortages in Japan, forced auto and other factories to close, sending shockwaves through global manufacturing and trade, and triggered a plunge in Japanese stock prices. Low levels of radiation have been detected well beyond Tokyo, which is 140 miles south of the plant, but hazardous levels have been

Obama asks DFM@< >L@;< for review of AAB nuclear plants K?<8;ALJKD<EK9LI<8L

W A S H I N G T O N (AP ) — President Barack Obama, trying to reassure a worried nation, declared Thursday that “harmful levels” of radiation from the Japanese nuclear disaster are not expected to reach the U.S., even as other officials conceded it could take weeks to bring the crippled nuclear complex under control. The situation remains dangerous and complicated at the damaged Fukushima Dai-ichi reactors in northeastern Japan, U.S. officials said. “We’ve seen an earthquake and tsunami render an unimaginable toll of death and destruction on one of our closest friends and allies in the world,” Obama said in brief remarks at the White House after a visit to the Japanese Embassy to offer his condolences. Obama said he had asked the Nuclear Regulatory Commission to conduct a “comprehensive review” of the safety of all U.S. nuclear plants. “When we see a crisis like the one in Japan, we have a responsibility to learn from this event and to draw from those lessons to ensure the safety and security of our people,” Obama said. There are 104 nuclear reactors in the United States, providing roughly 20 percent of the nation’s electricity.

limited to the plant itself. Still, the crisis has forced thousands to evacuate and drained Tokyo’s normally vibrant streets of life, its residents either leaving town or holing up in their homes. “I feel a sense of dread,” said Yukiko Morioka, 63, who has seen business dry up at her lottery ticket booth in Tokyo. “I’m not an expert, so it’s difficult to understand what’s going on. That makes it scarier.” A senior official with the U.N. nuclear agency said Thursday there had been “no significant worsening” at the nuclear plant but that the situation remained “very serious.” Graham Andrew told reporters in Vienna that nuclear fuel rods in two reactors were only about half covered with water, and they were also not completely

Edano said today that Tokyo is asking the U.S. government for help and that the two are discussing the specifics. “We are coordinating with the U.S. government as to what the U.S. can provide and what people really need,” Edano said. At times, the two close allies have offered starkly differing assessments over the dangers at Fukushima. U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission Chairman Gregory Jazcko said Thursday that it could take days and “possibly weeks” to get the complex under control. He defended the U.S. decision to recommend a 50-mile evacuation zone for its citizens, wider than the 30-mile band Japan has ordered. Crucial to the effort to regain control over the Fukushima plant is laying a new power line to the plant, allowing operators to restore cooling systems. The operator, Tokyo Electric Power Co., missed a deadline late Thursday but said today that workers hoped to complete the effort in 10 to 15 hours, said nuclear safety agency spokesman Minoru Ohgoda. But the utility is not sure the cooling systems will still function. If they don’t, electricity won’t help. The official death toll from the disasters stood at 6,405 as of this morning, with 10,259 missing, the national police agency said.

WASHINGTON — Finance officials from the Group of Seven major industrialized countries on Thursday agreed on a coordinated effort to weaken the Japanese yen, which has surged to record levels following last week’s earthquake and tsunami. A super-strong yen could cripple Japanese exports, further worsening the economic impact of the disaster that killed thousands and triggered an unfolding nuclear crisis. The coordinated intervention in international currency markets marked the first by the G-7 countries since the fall of 2000, when the G-7 intervened in an effort to bolster the euro. In a joint statement issued following emergency discussions, the G-7 officials said that the United States, Britain, Canada and the European Central Bank will join with Japan in a “concerted intervention” in currency markets today. “We express our solidarity with the Japanese people in these difficult times, our readiness to provided needed coop-

Transplant patient got AIDS from new kidney ——

CDC recommends repeat testing ATLANTA (AP) — A transplant patient contracted AIDS from the kidney of a living donor, in the first documented case of its kind in the U.S. since screening for HIV began in the mid-1980s. It turns out the donor had unprotected gay sex in the 11 weeks between the time he tested negative and the time the surgery took place in 2009. In a report Thursday on the New York City case, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommended that organ donors have repeat HIV tests a week before surgery. “The most sensitive test needs to be done as close as possible to the time of transplant,” said Dr. Colin Shepard, who oversees tracking of HEALTH HIV cases for the New York City Health Department. The CDC also said wouldbe organ donors should be told to avoid behavior that can increase their chances of infection. Living organ donors in the U.S. are routinely tested for infectious diseases such as hepatitis and HIV. But the organization that oversees organ transplants in the U.S. does not have an explicit policy on when such screening should be done. That’s left up to transplant centers. Because of patient confidentiality, health officials released few details about the donor, recipient, their relationship or the hospital where the transplant took place, except to say that it is in New York. Neither the donor nor the recipient knew he or she had HIV until about a year after the transplant, according to the CDC report. The recipient developed AIDS, perhaps because he or she was on drugs that suppress the immune system to prevent organ rejection, while the donor did not, health officials said. Both are receiving HIV treatment. Their conditions were not disclosed in the report. “We don’t know how frequently this is happening and we need better surveillance,” said Dr. Matthew Kuehnert, a CDC official who co-wrote the report. HIV infections in a donor or recipient may not be discovered until long after a transplant, and even then, patients and their doctors may not make the connection and report it, health officials said. In this case, once health authorities were notified late last year, they spent months investigating whether the transplanted kidney was the source of the patient’s AIDS infection. Genetic analysis of the virus confirmed investigators’ suspicions. For many years, transplant organizations focused heavily on screening organs taken from the dead, which accounted for the large majority of transplants. But kidneys from live donors are becoming increasingly common. In 1988, about 32 percent of kidney transplants came from live donors. By last year, it was more than 46 percent, according to federal data. Donors generally are relatives or friends. About 88,000 people are on the kidney waiting list right now, according the United Network for Organ Sharing, a nonprofit organization that manages the nation’s organ transplant system for the federal government.

U.N. authorizes ‘all necessary measures’ in Libya

Security Council resolution imposes no-fly zone By Ryan Lucas and Maggie Michael

Associated Press Writers

TOBRUK, LIBYA — The U.N. Security Council on Thursday authorized “all necessary measures” to stop Moammar Gadhafi in Libya — including strikes by sea and air — hours after he vowed in harrowing terms to launch a final assault and crush the weeks-old rebellion against him. The resolution, approved with the backing of the United States, France and Britain, imposed a no-fly zone over Libya and authorized force short of a ground offensive to protect its people from Gadhafi’s forces. The U.N. action bans all flights in Libyan airspace in order to protect civilians. While it was unclear how the West might proceed, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said earlier

in the day that a no-fly zone would require bombing targets inside Libya, including some of its defense systems. It was also unclear when any Western action would come. A British lawmaker said British forces could be mobilized as early as Thursday night. U.S. off icials, speaking after a closed-door briefing in Congress, said they expected an attempt to ground Gadhafi’s air force could begin by Sunday or Monday and would probably involve jet fighters, bombers and surveillance aircraft. After deliberating for weeks over what to do about Gadhafi, the West acted with sudden speed as it became clear Gadhafi would attempt to finally put an end to the rebellion. Gadhafi, calling in to Libyan television on Thursday, said his forces would “rescue” the people of Benghazi, the Mediterranean port city that has become the capital and staging ground for the opposition. For those who resist, Gadhafi said, there would be “no mercy or compassion.” “This is your happy day, we

will destroy your enemies,” he said, warning the people of Benghazi not to stand alongside the opposition. “Prepare for this moment to get rid of the traitors. Tomorrow we will show the world, to see if the city is one of traitors or heroes.” “Don’t betray me, my beloved Benghazi,” he said. His ground forces were still about 80 miles south of the city on Thursday evening Libya time, so it was unclear whether they would move on the city as quickly as he suggested. Speaking moments before in an interview with Portuguese television broadcast just before the vote at the U.N., Gadhafi pledged to respond harshly to U.N.sponsored attacks. “If the world is crazy,” he said, “we will be crazy, too.” At the U.N. headquarters in New York, the vote was 10-0. The United States, France and Britain had all pushed for speedy approval. “We had said all along that Gadhafi must go,” said British Foreign Secretary William Hague. “It is necessary to take these

measures to avoid greater bloodshed.” Five nations abstained, including Russia and China, which hold veto power on the council.

U.S. preparations In Washington, officials said the Obama administration was readying plans to enforce the no-fly zone. The French prime minister said before the measure was passed that his nation would support military action within hours. Several Arab nations were expected to provide backup. “Today the Security Council has responded to the Libyan people’s cry for help,” said Susan Rice, the U.S. ambassador to the U.N. “Colonel Gadhafi and those who still stand by him continue to grossly and systematically abuse the most fundamental of the human rights of his people.” The United States already has warships positioned near Libya. After eight hours of closed-door talks on Wednesday, Rice said a no-fly zone now was not enough, saying it has “inherent limita-

tions in terms of protection of civilians at immediate risk.” In Britain, a lawmaker with knowledge of defense matters confirmed that British forces were on standby for air strikes and could be mobilized as soon as Thursday night. The lawmaker declined to be named because the Defense Ministry has not issued official confirmation. French President Nicolas Sarkozy’s office issued a onesentence statement at about 2 a.m. today Paris time saying he and Obama had spoken by phone about the resolution. Obama also spoke with British Prime Minister David Cameron. Western countries have significant military assets nearby, including carriers in the Mediterranean, a large U.S. air base in Italy and a large British air presence on the island of Cyprus. In addition, allied Arab countries such as Jordan and Oman have planes and pilots often trained by the U.S., and American off icials have made clear they want active involvement by Arab countries if any action is taken.

Special man In many ways, Jim Seaver set a high standard for community and academic leadership.

K

ansas University has lost one of its academic giants with the death of Jim Seaver. He was the epitome of a university faculty member, quiet and highly respected. The long-time faculty member was a powerful force on and off the campus, not necessarily because he injected himself into contentious issues, but because he was held in such high regard by those genuinely interested in the betterment of the university and the community. Seaver was the perfect example of the true renaissance man. He was a scholar in every respect with varied interests in Western civilization, history, architecture and music. He was a nationally known opera commentator and a frequent foreign traveler. He was a skilled and successful collegiate athlete and counseled and advised thousands of university students. He was a powerful, thoughtful and effective speaker, a superb bridge player and served as president of KU’s Faculty Senate. He was interested and knowledgeable about the political scene and … he was a very nice person. Times, conditions and the environment change, but few KU faculty members have left such a mark on the university as did Jim Seaver. The university needs more faculty members and Lawrence needs more residents like Jim Seaver.

Ratings are red flag

Fears spur panic on Muslims He races into traffic screaming. “You fools,” he cries, “you’re in danger!”’ Horns are blasting, brakes are screeching, drivers are swerving to avoid the disheveled man running down the road. “Can’t you see?” he howls. “They’re after you! They’re after all of us! Our wives, our children, everyone! They’re here already!” To understand the paranoiac terror that has gripped much of the nation where Muslims are concerned, it is helpful to recall “Invasion of the Body Snatchers,” the 1956 sci-fi movie classic, and in particular, the penultimate scene described above. “Invasion” told the story of a small town doctor’s dawning realization that his fellow citizens were methodically being replaced by soulless alien things that were physically identical. It was a town where you suddenly found yourself casting sidelong glances at faces you’d known for years, wondering if your friend was really your friend or an alien entity secretly planning your demise. These things looked like us, acted like us, but were fundamentally not us. That’s a theme, and a fear, that recurs in American history — not just during the Red Scare era in which the movie was released, but also during the First World War, when German-Americans faced suspicion and censure and the Second World War when Japanese-Americans were forced into internment camps. For that matter, it recalls Salem, Mass., where, in 1692, 150 people were accused and 19 executed for practicing witchcraft. Last week’s

think we’d learn, “butYou’d we never do.” hearing, then, into the radicalization of American-Muslims was as predictable as it was regrettable. Make no mistake: after the Fort Hood massacre; the arrest of Jihad Jane, the would-be terrorist from Pennsylvania; and the aborted bombing of Times Square, it is high time government — and, for that matter, media — investigated the phenomenon of radicalization. We need to know how it happens and, more important, how to stop it. But New York Rep. Peter King, who convened last week’s hearings, is, putting it mildly, a less-thancredible instrument for such critical work. For one thing, there’s the hypocrisy of it: King, a once ardent supporter of the Irish Republican Army, is the living embodiment of the old saw about one man’s terrorist being another’s freedom fighter. Then there is the fact that King has a history of Muslim bashing. He claims, for instance, that 85 percent of mosque leaders in this country are extremists. It is a “statistic” based on nothing. And he says Muslims refuse to

help ferret out extremism in their community although, according to a University of North Carolina study, fully 40 percent of foiled terrorist plots were interrupted with the help of Muslims. But then, that’s a fact, and what do facts matter here? Very darn little, actually. Rep. King is not driven by facts or, for that matter, by the sort of sober reasoning you’d want on such a portentous question. Rather, King seems driven, and determined to drive us, by that primitive, unquestioning fear of the secret other, a fear we have already experienced too often in our history. And when it is over, when the fear has passed like fever, when the Japanese come out of the camps to find their homes and businesses gone, when the people accused of communism are found to be innocent after their careers and reputations are trashed, we Americans share guilty, vaguely abashed glances as if to say, What was that? What came over us? The answer: the same thing that has come over us now, a sticky, panicked, paranoia that leaves us looking sidelong at our own people. You’d think we’d learn, but we never do. Frighten us, and the same thing invariably happens. Absent of evidence, heedless of facts, we go running in panic like the doctor in the movie. But give him this much credit: At least he knew what he was running from. — Leonard Pitts Jr. is a columnist for the Miami Herald.

Kansas University should celebrate the high rankings of some of its programs, but it also should be concerned about some programs that saw large rating declines.

I

t’s always nice to see Kansas University receiving recognition for traditional areas of academic excellence such as special education, city management and urban policy. However, the significant declines for two KU programs in this year’s U.S. News and World Reports rankings demands attention. The KU School of Law dropped 12 spots to 79th place, and the KU masters of business administration program moved from 29th place two years ago to 46th place this year among public universities. The programs weren’t ranked last year. Law school officials attributed their poor showing almost exclusively to a one-year drop, in 2009, in the school’s bar passage rate. The school immediately added bar preparation programs for third-year students and saw a significant increase in the bar passage rate last year. Hopefully, that will resolve the ranking issue, but law school officials may want to explore other matters that may have affected the ranking. The MBA ranking applied only to KU’s parttime program based in Kansas City. A spokeswoman at the KU business school explained that the full-time MBA program based in Lawrence wasn’t ranked because it didn’t have enough students. Really? Even after the commitment KU business school officials supposedly made to use differential tuition funds to build enrollment and make the school more competitive? The new U.S. News and World Reports ranking seems to lend credence to concerns expressed in the last year by a group of MBA students about how the additional student fees were being used. It also should cause top administrators at KU to rethink their dismissive response to those concerns. Ratings certainly don’t tell the whole story of higher education excellence, but they can be a red flag to mark programs that need some special attention. When programs drop 12 places in one year, as the KU law school did, or 17 places in two years, as the MBA program did, university officials should recognize the need to review what is going on and make sure both the substance and perceptions that resulted in those rankings are corrected.

PUBLIC FORUM

Not a joke To the editor: Kansas Rep. Virgil Peck might think he was being funny, but his comments are no joke. Peck told the House Appropriations Committee that it might be a good idea to control illegal immigration the way we control the feral hog population with hunters shooting from helicopters. Such comments have no place in civil discourse. Unfortunately, this is not the first time that a legislator has compared undocumented immigrants to animals or much worse. Last year, Pat Bertroche, a candidate for Congress in Iowa, said, “I actually support microchipping them. I can microchip my dog so I can find it. Why can’t I microchip an illegal?” Tom Mullins, a Republican candidate for Congress in New Mexico, had proposed placing mines along the border. Ironically, Peck’s comment comes just days after the National Council of La Raza (NCLR) launched its Pledge for Respect campaign. It appears it couldn’t have come at a more timely moment. When Rep. Peck was asked about his comment, he said, “I was just speaking like a southeast Kansas person.” It is despicable that Peck would invoke his Kansan heritage to defend his remarks. I was born and raised in Kansas, and the people I grew up with are hardworking people with closeknit families, good neighbors, and people of strong faith. They do not think that hunting human beings is funny. Peck might think he was being funny on Monday, but despite his tepid apology, to Hispanics everywhere, his comments are no joke.

Nuclear power still a good option In the 1979 movie “The China Syndrome,” reporter Kimberly Wells (played by Jane Fonda) witnesses an accident at a nuclear power plant and then uncovers a plot to keep it a secret in order to protect the power company’s billion-dollar investment. The film was a gift to the political left, which at the time opposed the pursuit of nuclear energy to reduce our addiction to foreign oil. In some liberal circles, that opposition remains strong. The film, along with real-life accidents such as Three Mile Island (also in 1979), in which no one was killed, and Chernobyl (1986), which, according to the World Nuclear Association, “killed two Chernobyl plant workers on the night of the accident, and a further 28 people within a few weeks, as a result of acute radiation poisoning,” account for much of our modern thinking about all things nuclear. Other films, like “Dr. Strangelove,” “Fail-Safe” and “On the Beach” — along with the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, which ended World War II and launched the Cold War with the Soviet Union in which “mutual assured destruction” (MAD) and civil defense drills became the norm — make us nervous about what the unrestrained power of the atom can do. The nuclear reactors at Japan’s Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear plant were damaged by the tsunami, not the earthquake, and not by faulty construction or worker error, as was the case at Chernobyl and to a lesser extent Three Mile Island. The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission has significantly tightened standards since those incidents, but no regulation or safety precaution can offer a 100 percent guarantee against an acci-

clean energy “thatWecanneed be developed on our own territory.”

dent or natural disaster. Politicians tend to overreact to such things and stoke public fear. The otherwise cautious and principled German Chancellor Angela Merkel quickly announced plans to shut down seven of her country’s nuclear power plants pending a safety review. U.S. Energy Secretary Steven Chu, a proponent of nuclear energy, told members of a House subcommittee on Tuesday that, “The American people should have full confidence that the United States has rigorous safety regulations in place to ensure that our nuclear power is generated safely and responsibly.” He faces off against nuclear energy opponents, including Rep. Ed Markey, DMass., who was recently quoted as saying, “We have to listen to what is happening in Japan and protect ourselves and our people.” Run for the hills! Chicken Little lives! The Houston Chronicle quoted Peter Cardillo, chief market economist for Avalon Partners, a brokerage house in New York: “It’s a situation where you sell (your stocks now), and you ask questions later,” thus indulging in self-

fulfilling prophecy as Japanese and American markets dipped. The Obama administration continues to stonewall when it comes to exploring for new sources of oil in or near American territory. (It has approved just two deepwater drilling sites since the BP oil spill in the Gulf, which, contrary to doomsday predictions, did not foul beaches for a decade or cripple the seafood industry, which seems to have recovered well in plenty of time for the summer vacation rush.) Too many politicians continue to oppose coal exploration, an American natural resource. Without advances in nuclear energy, the United States will continue to face not only the petroleum price equivalent of mood swings, but also deepen our dependency on foreign oil, a dependence that will ultimately lead to a host of domestic and international problems. Cooler heads must prevail and conclusions avoided until a full assessment of the Japan disaster is known. Science cannot prevent earthquakes or tsunamis, but that does not keep people from wanting to live near the shore. Scientists and engineers have made great progress in addressing safety issues raised by Three Mile Island and Chernobyl, but again, nothing is foolproof or there would be no traffic accidents or airplane crashes. And we still drive and fly, don’t we? We need clean energy that can be developed on our own territory. Nuclear power, in conjunction with the discovery of more oil and the use of coal, natural gas, bio fuels, wind and solar power, offers the best option for the foreseeable future. — Cal Thomas is a columnist for Tribune Media Services.

To the editor: The Affordable Health Care Act will: ● prohibit denial of health insurance to persons with pre-existing conditions. ● eliminate lifetime and annual limits on essential benefits. ● cap annual out-of-pocket expenses, including deductibles and co-pays. ● prohibit insurance companies from rescinding coverage for persons who have major illnesses. ● ensure health plans provide certain preventive services at no cost to consumers. ● provide refundable and advanceable credits to make premiums affordable. ● create nonprofit, memberrun health insurance cooperatives to provide affordable, quality health insurance. The law is not perfect, but it is definitely a step in the right direction. Clark H. Coan, Lawrence

WEATHER TRIVIA™ Where do the vertical rays of the sun shift just after spring begins?

Holdup suspect caught at parade TOPEKA (AP) — A Topeka police officer had no problem identifying a suspect in an early-morning holdup at a convenience store. She was standing several hours later along a downtown street watching the St. Patrick’s Day Parade — wearing the same distinctive outfit shown on surveillance tape from the crime scene. WIBW-AM reported that the 26-year-old woman was taken into custody shortly after 1 p.m. Thursday on suspicion of aggravated robbery, assault and property damage. Authorities believe she entered a Kwik Shop around 3:30 Thursday morning holding a screwdriver and demanded money from a clerk. A person who tried to stop her was hit with a baseball bat. Surveillance tape showed her leaving the store in a bright blue warm-up suit with a broad yellow stripe — the same attire the officer noticed along the parade route hours later.

Galactic If you’re not still recovering from yesterday’s St. Patrick’s Day festivities, get yourself to the Granada, 1020 Mass., for Galactic. Touring in support of their new album,, “Ya-Ka-May,” the New Orleans band is showcasing some of the most laid-back, cool music they’ve sported in years. “Ya-Ka-May” is the band’s interpretation of New Orleans and if this record is any indication, they see the city as an incredibly musically diverse playground where free-verse jazz mingles with turntables and horns merge with booming percussion and electric guitars. In short, the show will be great for fans of good music and fans of crowded dance floors. And no, those two categories aren’t always interchangeable.

President O’Bama? Leader has Irish roots Climber survives

By Cristian Salazar and Randy Herschaft

Associated Press Writers

N E W Y O R K — President Barack Obama found out years ago he had an Irish great-great-great-grandfather who fled the potato famine in 1850. He can now claim 28 living relatives who also descended from that Irishman, including a Vietnam veteran, a school nurse and a displeased Arizona Republican. The president’s newly identif ied relatives are revealed in a study released to The Associated Press by Ancestry.com, whose genealogists also traced descendants of 23 other Irish passengers on the ship that brought Falmouth Kearney to the United States when he was 19. The survey allowed genealogists to further trace branches in Obama’s family tree and others who arrived on the ship, known as the Marmion, on March 20, 1850. According to the survey, the passengers’ descendants live in Canada, Syria and throughout the United States. Among Obama’s newly identified relatives is 83-year-old Dorma Lee Reese, of Tucson, Ariz. “I’m not a Democrat, so I can’t say I clapped,” said Reese, a retired brain-imaging technologist. “I don’t appreciate what he’s done by any means, but I do appreciate that he holds that office.” Obama addressed his roots Thursday during a St. Patrick’s Day luncheon at the Capitol. “Now, speaking of ancestry, there has been some controversy about my own background,” the president said.

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA MEETS with Irish Prime Minister Enda Kenny on Thursday in the Oval Office of the White House in Washington. “Two years into my presidency, some are still bent on peddling rumors about my origins. So today I want to put all those rumors to rest. It is true my great-great-great-grandfather really was from Ireland.” After applause, he continued, “It’s true. Moneygall, to be precise. I can’t believe I have to keep pointing this out.” Kearney arrived with his brother-in-law William and his wife, Margaret Cleary. They were destined for Ohio, where Kearney’s relative had left property in his name. Kearney married, had 10 children and later settled in Indiana, where he worked as a farmer. Obama’s mother, Ann Dunham, was a descendant of one of Kearney’s daughters, Mary Ann Kearney, and Jacob William Dunham. When the 903-ton Marmion arrived after a 3,000-mile voyage to New York Harbor from Liverpool, England, carrying 289 passengers, it was following a

well-worn route used by masses of Irish immigrants. Among the carpenters, bricklayers and shoemakers arriving that day was Kearney, listed in records only as a laborer. Like many of the passengers, he was fleeing a country ravaged by a potato blight that destroyed families and livelihoods and left the country starving. From the 1840s to the end of the 1850s, about 1.7 million Irish immigrants came to the United States. On the day of the Marmion’s arrival, the Brooklyn Daily Eagle reported that the St. Patrick’s Society in Brooklyn had held its first annual banquet; a toast was made to the passengers’ homeland, referring to it by its ages-old nickname: “Though gloomy shadows hang o’er thee now ... as darkness is densest, even just before day, So thy gloom, truest Erin, may soon pass away.” By 1860, the city had the largest Irish population in the

world outside Ireland. Nearly 37 million Americans claimed Irish ancestry in 2009, according to census estimates. Ancestry.com revealed Obama’s Irish roots and his connection to Kearney in 2007, but it is uncovering its new findings this week following months of work as part of a larger project on Irish heritage. “We had this idea of trying to look at a micro-study of how Irish immigrants have impacted the United States,” said Anastasia Harman, the lead family historian for Ancestry.com. Other distant Obama relatives include Roma Joy Palmer, 66, of Mulvane, Kan., who is retired from the insurance business, and Dean Dillard, 63, a Vietnam War veteran and retired community college professor who lives in Chanute, Kan. “I really don’t like to claim a relationship to Obama. He is not my favorite president,” said Palmer, a Republican. “I don’t have anything against him personally. But I don’t think we have the same agenda.” Dillard, though, said he took pride in his family “being related to a president of the United States,” even though he is a registered Republican, did not vote for Obama and opposes his politics. Sandra West, 65, of Hereford, Ariz., also was identified by Ancestry.com but had already discovered years ago that she was distantly related to Obama when she investigated the Dunhams of Kansas. “I figured there had to be a connection somewhere,” she said.

for 6 days stranded in remote canyon ———

David Cicotello, 57, a KU graduate By Sheila V. Kumar

on a ledge in No Man’s Canyon, in the rugged wilderness some 180 miles southeast of Salt Lake City. His climbing partner — 70-yearold brother Louis — lay motionless on the ground 100 feet below, having fallen while rappelling. Cicotello made a “HELP” sign with some climbing equipment. And then he waited. Over the next 146 hours — six days — he sipped water, nibbled an orange, a sandwich and a few cashews until rescuers arrived. Cicotello survived, but his brother did not. David Cicotello’s ordeal is a rare survival tale from the state’s unforgiving canyon lands. Sometimes, travelers have to take extreme measures to survive. In 2003, Aron Ralston was exploring a slot canyon alone in Canyonlands National Park when his right arm was pinned beneath a boulder. He amputated the arm, fearing he would die there if he didn’t get free. His story became the subject of the movie “127 Hours.” “If you come down in this area, you better be prepared. It takes hours for search and rescue members to get there,” speakers convey gender inclu- said Tal Ehlers, a member of siveness. According to the the rescue team that found translators’ notes on the Com- the Cicotellos on March 12. mittee on Bible Translation’s website, “The gender-neutral Tale of survival David Cicotello, an admispronoun ‘they’ (‘them’/‘their’) is by far the most common sions official at Middle Tenway that English-language nessee State University in speakers and writers today Murfreesboro, Tenn., and refer back to singular who has a bachelor’s degree antecedents such as ‘whoev- and master’s degree in Enger,’ ‘anyone,’ ‘somebody,’ ‘a lish from Kansas University, person,’ ‘no one,’ and the like.” spoke to friends about the Randy Stinson, president Utah trip and approved a of the CBMW and dean of the written account.

There was evangelicals believe the Eng- 100 feet to go to the canyon lish translation should read bottom. The plan: Eat lunch after rappelling down, then “brothers.”

New Bible criticized for gender-neutral language NASHVILLE, TENN. (AP) — In the old translation of the world’s most popular Bible, John the Evangelist declares: “If anyone says, ‘I love God,’ yet hates his brother, he is a liar.” Make that “brother or sister” in a new translation that includes more genderneutral language and is drawing criticism from some conservatives who argue the changes can alter the theological message. The 2011 translation of the New International Version Bible, or NIV, does not change pronouns referring to God, who remains “He” and “the Father.” But it does aim to avoid using “he” or “him” as the default reference to an unspecified person. The NIV Bible is used by many of the largest Protestant faiths. The translation comes from an independent group of biblical scholars that has been meeting yearly since 1965 to discuss advances in biblical scholarship and changes in English usage. Before the new translation even hit stores, it drew opposition from the Council on Biblical Manhood and Woman-

hood, an organization that believes women should submit to their husbands in the home and only men can hold some leadership roles in the church. The council decided it would not endorse the new version because the changes alter “the theological direction and meaning of the text,” according to a statement. Similar concerns led the Southern Baptist Convention to reject the NIV’s previous translation in 2005. At issue is how to translate pronouns that apply to both genders in the ancient Greek and Hebrew texts but have traditionally been translated using masculine forms in English. An example from the translator’s notes for Mark 4:25 to show how the NIV’s translation of these words has evolved over the past quarter-century. The widely distributed 1984 version of the NIV quotes Jesus: “Whoever has will be given more; whoever does not have, even what he has will be taken from him.” The more recent incarnation of the NIV from 2005,

called Today’s New International Version, changed that to: “Those who have will be given more; as for those who do not have, even what they have will be taken from them.” The CBMW had complained in 2005 that making the subject of a verse plural to convey that it could refer equally to a man or a woman “potentially obscured an important aspect of biblical thought — that of the personal relationship between an individual and God.” The NIV 2011 seems to have taken that criticism into account and come up with a compromise: “Whoever has will be given more; whoever does not have, even what they have will be taken from them.” While the translators’ former grammar teachers may not like it, the translators offer a strong justification for their choice of “they” (instead of the clunky “he or she”) and “them” (instead of “him or her”) to refer back to the singular “whoever.” They commissioned an extensive study of the way modern English writers and

— Tal Ehlers, a member of the rescue team that found the Cicotellos walk an old horse trail back to the rim. Louis set an anchor and fed rope through a rappel ring. And then went over the ledge. Moments later, the rope whipped through the ring and disappeared. David called out to his brother; there was no reply. He tried to reach his brother, but couldn’t. He soon realized that he would have to stay on the ledge until Friday, a day after the brothers were to check in with family. In his pack: A liter bottle of iced tea, a small bottle of water, an orange, a sandwich, a high energy bar, some cashews, some matches, a flashlight, a knife, a pair of wool socks and a jacket. He had left his cell phone in his truck, knowing it wouldn’t work inside the canyon. David allowed himself some water or tea and a few bites of food each day. To keep warm at night, he attached the wool socks to his baseball cap and lit small fires along the side of the ledge. Ehlers said the temperature sat in the 30s at night. He passed the hours keeping vigil over his brother. Animals and birds drank from a pool at the foot of the slot canyon. A bat flew out each night from above.

Rescue comes Rescuers began their search on March 11, after relatives reported the brothers missing. He was down to one slice of orange, a few cashews and an ounce of water. The sandwich and tea had turned rancid. He held on to that last ounce of water, telling himself he wouldn’t drink it until he heard a rescuer call his name. He didn’t want to look at an empty water bottle. David Cicotello was airlifted to a hospital in Moab, where he was treated for dehydration and minor injuries. Louis Cicotello’s body was recovered an hour after the rescue.

Dear Concerned: We don’t know if this guy is taking money from Linda or if he’s simply a married man, but we agree that something doesn’t seem right. A legit romance allows you not only to meet each other in a public place, but to be introduced to family and friends. A man who finds excuses to avoid meeting you is hiding

Universal Crossword Edited by Timothy E. Parker March 18, 2011

Dear Annie: Two of my daughter’s friends are joining us in planning a party for her 30th birthday. The invitation they printed states: “Please bring $37 cash per person for the meal. Alcoholic beverages will be an additional cost. Following dinner there will be a party at one of the local bars which will require more money for drinks.” I have always been under

“Supernanny” (7 p.m., ABC), a dependable if predictable fixture in the ABC schedule since 2005, airs is final episode tonight. Over the years, “Supernanny” has offered comfort food of sorts by hewing to some pretty standard TV traditions. For starters, people like to observe other families’ parenting styles and find them wanting. It’s a human trait that predates reality television by several thousand years. It also follows in the more recent television notion that anyone with a British accent is inherently smarter than his or her American charge. Lastly it adheres to the most predictable television premise of all. Be it a scripted series or a reality spectacle, no problem, no behavioral dysfunction or rotten habit born of years or decades of emotional neglect is too great to be surmounted and “solved” in roughly 44 minutes. In tonight’s ultimate “Supernanny,” Jo Frost travels to Houston, not to teach clueless parents to mend their ways, but to counsel a family whose mother died of breast cancer a year ago and where a grieving father of three boys is having difficulty enforcing the rules his late wife established for the boys before she died. Frost was particularly drawn to this case, as her own mother died of breast cancer when she was growing up. Have handkerchiefs at the ready as Frost season finally lifts on ABC. Jo Frost can also be seen on “The Late Late Show” (11:37 p.m., CBS). ● Poignant and not a little strange in its own way, “Give it Up for Greg Giraldo” (10:30 p.m., Comedy Central) recalls the 44-year-old standup comedian and fixture from the network’s many celebrity roasts who died last September from an overdose of prescription medication. Both somber and celebratory, “Give it Up” includes laudatory reflection from Conan O’Brien, Jon Stewart, Sarah Silverman, Colin Quinn, Denis Leary, Dave Attell and other colleagues in the business of funny. They recall his intelligence, the fact that he was a Harvard-educated lawyer who left his profession for the stage. All praise his ability to set the bar rather high for the kind of caustic, blowtorch humor associated with comedy roasts. “Give it Up” is moving because it captures so many professional cynics in moments of personal reflection, even grief. It’s strange in that it does such a good job of recalling Giraldo’s irreverence that you leave convinced that this show is precisely the kind of maudlin exercise that he would have lampooned when he was alive. ● Some see the world divided between people who prefer the 1988 tearjerker “Ghost” (7 p.m., WE) and those who lean toward “Ghostbusters” (8 p.m., Nickelodeon). Friday’s supernatural offerings continue into the wee hours with “The Boogens” (1 a.m., TCM) and “Ghoulies” (2:45 a.m., TCM).

Tonight’s other highlights ● NCAA Basketball Tournament games (6 p.m. and 8:30 p.m., CBS, times approximate). Games can also be seen on TBS, TNT and TruTV. Check listings. ● The Winter X Games Europe (7 p.m., ESPN) conclude. ● Rosie O’Donnell traces her roots on “Who Do You Think You Are” (7 p.m., NBC). ● Old-home week on “Kitchen Nightmares” (7 p.m., Fox). ● A suicide investigation leads to evidence of a woman who cannot die on “Fringe” (8 p.m., Fox).

JACQUELINE BIGAR’S STARS For Friday, March 18: Remain optimistic and forthright this year. Often you might want to take off and not deal with certain situations. You can also choose to not respond, and opt to not run away. If you are single, you might meet more suitors than the mind can imagine. Choosing the right one takes talent. If you are attached, work on understanding and mutual respect. Choose to accept rather than fight. Virgo can be challenging at best. The Stars Show the Kind of Day You'll Have: 5Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult Aries (March 21-April 19) ★★★★ Focus on details, and don't skip any steps. Follow-through counts more than you can imagine. Tonight: Nap, then decide. Taurus (April 20-May 20) ★★★★★ You are encouraged to go within and become more creative. No matter what you approach, you revitalize the situation or a project with a more innovative sense. Tonight: Fun and games. Gemini (May 21-June 20) ★★★ Remain centered, no matter what goes on. You are able to see a child or new love interest

perhaps in one of his or her most negative lights. Tonight: Homeward bound. Cancer (June 21-July 22) ★★★★ Say what you feel, though it could be difficult to get the words out. You might be hard-pressed to find the right words. Tonight: Hang with friends. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) ★★★★ Be sensitive to spending. You could go way overboard without meaning to. Understand where someone is coming from, but know that you don't have to go along for the ride. Tonight: Try to avoid going overboard. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) ★★★★★ Your energy multiplies as long as you alternate activities. How you handle someone and the decisions you make could be quite startling to many people. Tonight: Don't push too hard, for your sake. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) ★★★ Much goes on behind the scenes. You could be overwhelmed by insecurities and doubts. Tonight: Easy works. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) ★★★★ No one can undermine you like you, the Scorp, undermine yourself. Stop it! Center yourself; take a walk. Tonight: Where the action is.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22Dec. 21) ★★★★ All eyes look to you, forcing your hand. Take a stand, and someone might quickly detach and no longer be a quiet supporter. Careful. Tonight: A must appearance. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) ★★★★★ Stretch mentally and see what is happening with someone else. You can never really relate to someone until you come to a more complete understanding of what that person goes through. Tonight: Sort through mixed messages and decide to do only what you want. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) ★★★★★ Your abilities to move forward and perhaps come to a better understanding emerge. You might want to rethink a situation openly with the parties involved. Tonight: An important discussion. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) ★★★★ Others could steal your thunder. That type of behavior could be most upsetting. Listen to your inner voice when dealing with a key person in your life. Tonight: Go with a suggestion. — The astrological forecast should be read for entertainment only.

BIRTHDAYS Composer John Kander (“Chicago”) is 84. Nobel peace laureate and former South African president F.W. de Klerk is 75. Country singer Charley Pride is 73. Actor Brad Dourif is 61. Jazz musician Bill Frisell is 60. Singer Irene Cara is

follow it. We recommend you bow out of this particular responsibility and let your daughter’s friends throw whatever party they choose. You can attend and be billed like all the others.

Dear Confused: The hosts should pay for the party. Otherwise, they are setting a price for the others without consulting them, which is both rude and inconsiderate. anniesmailbox@creators.com Unfortunately, many young something. One who never people are unaware of this lets you meet his friends or custom and see no reason to relatives is probably married. And asking for a loan is completely off limits until a genuine commitment is in place. You cannot protect Linda from her own risky impulses, but you can warn her that not all such relationships are honest and tell her you hope she will be careful.

Dear Annie: My neighbor “Linda” has been single and lonely for years. A few months ago, she told me that she was communicating with a man she met on a personals website. I was initially happy to hear this, but quickly changed my mind. Over the past few weeks, Linda has told me they have lengthy phone conversations every day, although they haven’t met. He originally told her he lived nearby but travels a lot on business. Now she says they will meet as soon as he gets home, but that keeps getting delayed. I am positive this guy is a con man, but nothing I say convinces her. I don’t know if Linda has already given him money because every time I bring it up, she gets angry. Will you please share with your readers the dangers of these romance scams? — Concerned Friend
