‘Most of our farmers were pretty happy’

City set to OK bedbug policy ——

A FARMER KICKS OUT A ROLL OF HAY for his cattle on a pasture Friday just south of Kansas Highway 10 near the Douglas County Jail. The value of farmland in Douglas County has remained strong compared with other parts of the state and nation.

County land values buck state trend By Ben Unglesbee Twitter: @LJW_KU

With commodity prices falling, farmland value has fallen with them in much of Kansas. But the unusual market for real estate in Douglas County has largely shielded it from the trend. In January average sales prices for an acre of highquality farmland in Kansas dropped 10 percent from what they were in January 2013, according to a survey from Farmers National Company, a farm management firm with real estate and insurance services. In Kansas, land went for $4,500 per-acre on average in

Weather and demographics have helped prices stay higher here Many people are attracted to Kansas University and Lawrence’s shopping, golf courses and other amenities, as well as the ability to live the country life outside of town, says Michael Flory, of realty firm Flory Associates. January, compared with $5,000 last year, according to the survey. Several other heavily agricultural states saw price drops as well, including Nebraska,

where prices per acre fell by $1,000. That’s a shift from much of the past decade. From 2004 to 2013 farm real estate values nearly doubled, according to the USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service. The rise in land prices followed record market prices for corn and soybeans, driven by international demand and biofuels production. But those prices started to fall in 2013, and land values in many places have fallen with them. Bill Wood, director of the Douglas County extension office, said that recent droughts

in western Kansas have also affected prices in the region. “They’ve taken a worse hit,” he said. The same pattern hasn’t held in Douglas County, where the weather and demographics make for a different market. With more rainfall in this part of the state, farmers have seen good wheat, corn and soybean crops, which have helped keep land prices strong. “Overall most of our farmers were pretty happy,” Wood said. “I haven’t heard from anyone who’s felt land was dropping.”

Regulation aimed at reducing hotel pests By Chad Lawhorn clawhorn@ljworld.com

Landlords and hotel/motel operators soon will be fighting a new city-ordered battle: one against bedbugs. Lawrence city commissioners are set at Tuesday’s meeting to approve a new policy that will require more recordCITY keeping, and, COMMISSION at times, mandatory inspections to control the hard-to-kill pest. Please see LAND, page 2A The details: l Hotel and motel operators who receive a bedbug complaint must respond immediately by relocating guests. Landlords have 48 hours to respond to a complaint from a tenant. l Both landlords and hotel/motel operators must have a licensed exterminator on the property within 72 hours of receiving a complaint. l In addition to the living unit that generated the

A Douglas County district judge opted for probation in sentencing a Lawrence man who had been in jail since July following an arrest for his role in an armed robbery last spring. Caleb Christopher Mar Sheridan, 19, was sentenced to three years of probation by District Judge Paula Martin on Friday and will begin his sentence after entering a 30-day inpatient treatment program in Kansas City, Kan. “I’m just really ready to move on to the next chapter of my life, go to school and stop all this dumb behavior I’ve been partaking in,” Sheridan told Martin. Sheridan’s defense attorney, Craig Stancliffe, said on Friday that Sheridan had been diagnosed with attention deficit disorder and bipolar disorder and that if given probation, Sheridan would

complaint, any unit that shares a wall with that living unit must also be inspected. For example, if one apartment is found to have bedbugs, the adjacent apartments also must be inspected. l Generally, tenants and property managers won’t be allowed to remove items from a room suspected of having bedbugs until after the room has been treated. Clothes removed from the unit will be required to be immediately washed and dried with high heat. l Property owners or property managers will be required to keep a written record of all bedbug complaints and documentation of treatments from licensed exterminators. Under the proposed policy, property owners will have to turn those records over to the city when requested to do so. l Property owners and managers will be encouraged to develop a training program for their employees on how to spot signs of bedbugs and how to prevent infestations. Tim Ogden, a manager with Kansas Citybased SOS Pest Control, which specializes in bedbug treatments, said he wishes more communities would take the steps Lawrence is taking. “I think most communities still have their

heads in the sand on the issue,” Ogden said. But property owners who are required to eradicate bedbugs under the new policy soon will discover the process can be expensive. Ogden said a treatment often runs between $900 to $2,000, with a typical two-bedroom apartment costing a little more than $1,000. City officials, though, said they’ve seen an increase in the number of bedbug complaints, especially in apartment complexes. LawrenceDouglas County Health Department officials weren’t available for comment on Friday, but last summer they said they were receiving about 12 to 15 bedbug complaints per year. Before 2010, it was rare to receive a bedbug report. Bedbugs cause skin irritations by biting and sucking their victims’ blood. “There definitely has been a resurgence of them nationwide,” said Ogden, who said many people have speculated bedbugs have re-emerged as several chemicals that were used to kill them have been outlawed. Ogden said a heat treatment of an infested room is the most common method of killing the pests. Air temperatures in a room often reach 140 to 160 degrees as part of the process, he said.

enter inpatient treatment before moving in with his aunt in Lawrence Sheridan and working at a Tshirt company. In October, Sheridan pleaded guilty to amended charges of attempted aggravated robbery and conspiracy to commit aggravated robbery. He also pleaded guilty to possession of hallucinogenic drugs, but Stancliffe argued that a prison sentence, given Sheridan’s mental health history, would not have served society, calling prison a “criminal college.” Prosecutor James McCabria argued that Sheridan admitted to his role in supplying a former friend with a gun after his friend, who Sheridan said sold marijuana, had been robbed. McCabria said Sheridan and his

friend went out looking for places to burglarize and people to rob when they robbed a pedestrian on Rhode Island Street on March 7, 2013. Furthermore, McCabria said, mental health services would have also been available through the department of corrections. But in opting for a probation sentence, Martin said she had seen a big change in Sheridan in the months he has been in custody and that on Friday she noticed an outpouring of family support she had not seen before in the case. The terms of the probation would be zero tolerance, Martin said, meaning a violation would land Sheridan in prison for 55 months. “I hope you don’t blow this,” she said. “You won’t be disappointed, your honor,” Sheridan replied.

A 48-year-old Topeka man was sentenced Friday to 15 months in prison on charges stemming from the theft and unlawful use of a credit card in Lawrence in August 2013. District Judge Peggy Kittel sentenced Joe Larry Hunter, who pleaded guilty last month to stealing a woman’s credit card at the Wagnon-Parrott Athletic Center on the

Kansas University campus. Because of his criminal history — which Hunter includes multiple convictions in Douglas, Shawnee, Johnson and Sedgwick counties — the felony theft charges came with a mandatory prison

sentence. On Friday, Hunter told the judge he admitted everything he participated in and wanted to put his life back together. When asked how much time he had served in prison in his life, Hunter replied “too much,” before saying he has spent more than 20 years in jail, or almost half his life.

getting global attention. Among those issues is a new Russian law that bans “propaganda” relating to homosexuality. Critics say the law is so broad it essentially bans gay rights protests and advocacy and could help legitimize violence against homosexuals. The Olympics have sharpened global concern about the new law and heightened calls from activists. Vitaly Chernetsky, a KU associate professor of Slavic languages and culture, said historically Russia was “not as hostile to homosexuality and as homophobic as some Western countries.” The new law, Chernetsky said, is largely a political wedge, intended to be a “distraction from other political and economic issues in the country.” Yet the effect has been to disenfranchise the LGBT community. Where before homosexuals could exist in “relative safety and comfort,” especially in Moscow, now the “orchestrated pressure from the government has made people uncomfortable,” Chernetsky said.

Kansas Rural Center generates ‘buzz’ with beginning beekeeping workshops By Nicole Wentling nwentling@ljworld.com

Becky and Steve Tipton, owners of Country Creek Honey near Meriden, are self-taught beekeepers. The few hives they started with in the late 1980s have grown to more than 100, each compris-

ing 60,000 to 80,000 honeybees — a total of around 8 million. Now, as master beekeepers and leaders of the Kansas Honey Producers’ Association, the Tiptons teach introductory classes on beekeeping with the hope that others will pick up on the hobby they’ve enjoyed for more than 25 years.

This prerogative has become more of a priority in the past several years, Becky said, because of the recent outbreak of Colony Collapse Disorder, the sudden and widespread disappearance of adult honeybees from hives. Please see BEES, page 5A

SATURDAY COLUMN

How will funding shifts impact higher education? By Dolph C. Simons Jr.

Is it time for someone or some group to consider the possibility of changing the way Kansas Board of Regents universities are managed? Recently, a highly knowledgeable Kansan with distinguished experience in government and education endeavors pointed out to this writer that the general public doesn’t realize the state doesn’t provide the majority of the funding to operate the state’s public universities. Consider what has happened in the past 10 years to state funding for Kansas University, supposedly the state’s “flagship� and most important school. In 2003, the state of Kansas provided 27 percent of KU’s operating budget. Today, the state provides 17.6 percent of the university’s operating fund. In 2003, tuition funds provided 21 percent of the university’s operating funds. This year, tuition dollars account for

32.4 percent of those funds. This writer did not obtain dollar figures for the state support in past years, but it seems reasonable to assume that at some time, state funds provided the majority of financing to operate the school. However, unless there is a major turnaround, state fiscal support for the state’s flagship university is bound to dwindle to almost nothing. If that happens, is it expected tuition will keep rising to make up for the drop in state funding? Already, tuition costs are testing greater numbers of students and their families. How much higher can these costs climb before parents and students are forced to look elsewhere for their post-high school education? The KU Endowment Association enjoys an excellent record of developing private fiscal support for the school, but this money is not solicited, or given, with the idea of paying for services that are the state’s responsibility. The state is supposed to provide the essentials with KUEA providing the

frosting on the cake. Is this historic funding shift going to change? What happens when state support almost dries up? Who or what will fill this hole in funding? Will KU price itself out of business in the eyes of many Kansans, no matter the excellence of the school?

COMMENTARY Almost daily, there are news stories reporting KU officials calling for additional state funding. This week, it is the need for $75 million for a new health education facility for the KU School of Medicine in Kansas City. Although not part of the state’s responsibility, KU Hospital officials, across the street from the medical school, plead the case for an equally costly, perhaps even more costly, new building to meet the hospital’s growing patient loads. Just how much relief can come from offering more online course work? KU was slow

to get into this field and is now trying to play catch-up. This presents a difficult question for KU administrators, regents and state lawmakers in that KU officials may be asking for new buildings, new living facilities, more research laboratories, etc., and yet, if online teaching becomes a far more attractive and economical way to take courses, is there the possibility of overbuilding on the KU campus? As noted above, it is time, or perhaps past time, for those charged with providing Kansas residents an excellent system of higher education to come up with some sound, reasonable and workable answers as to how to provide the level of funding essential for the state to meet its responsibilities. Or is it possible many states will not be able to fund a flagship institution causing students seeking the challenge, excellence, vision and motivation provided at superior “flagship� schools to enroll at multistate regional hub schools to obtain an elevated educational experience?

What kind of school will KU be 10 to 20 years from now and who will be paying for it? The state, students and their parents, generous private donors, corporations or the federal government? Who will be managing the university? Those providing the funding (which is not likely to be the state)? The regents (who really don’t have any skin in the game)? Some kind of public body representing those using the school? The governor or possibly members of the Kansas Legislature, although there is a large turnover from election to election which would provide little or no consistency in mission and goals. Could professors run the school and raise the necessary funds? Just because, over the years, Kansans have enjoyed a firstclass system of higher education is no reason for residents to believe and operate as if this will always be the case and guaranteed for the future. The money well is drying up. How can it be recharged in today’s economy?

Sixth St. and 2300 Iowa St., declined to comment for this story, referring questions to the company’s corporate office. One man who stopped in the Sixth Street store for a pack of cigarettes and a Frappuccino this week said he didn’t expect the phase-out to inconvenience him much. The shopper, who declined to give his name for publication, said he usually picks up cigarettes wherever’s handy when he’s out. Customers like him may be part of the reason other drugstore chains have been reluctant to pull tobacco. CVS said that while it has about $1.5 billion annually in tobacco sales, it expects to lose about $2 billion in annual revenue by removing tobacco because smokers also buy other products when they visit. Walgreens, which has Lawrence locations at 3421 W. Sixth St. and 400 W. 23rd St., has argued that it must continue to sell tobacco to remain competitive with other drugstore chains, convenience stores

and grocers. Michael Polzin, a Walgreens spokesman, said the company “will continue to evaluate the choice of products our customers want, while also helping to educate them and providing smoking cessation products and alternatives that help reduce the demand for tobacco products.” Walgreens on Wednesday also announced a partnership with GlaxoSmithKline Consumer healthcare to launch a free, Internet-based smoking cessation program called Sponsorship to Quit. As CVS has teamed with hospital groups and doctor practices to help deliver and monitor patient care, CVS Chief Medical Officer Dr. Troyen A. Brennan said the presence of tobacco in its stores has made for some awkward conversations. “One of the first questions they ask us is, ‘Well, if you’re going to be part of the health care system, how can you continue to sell tobacco products?” he said. “There’s really no good answer to that at all.”

Amid the attacks on the World Trade Towers, Steiger led his news team from a kitchen in New Jersey so they could put out the next day’s paper, which would go on to win a Pulitzer. Speaking at the Kansas Union’s Alderson Auditorium, Steiger discussed the history of investigative journalism and questioned the idea, posited by some commentators, that journalism has entered a new “golden age.” For that to happen, Steiger said, journalists, publishers and others need to “find a new way to get paid” to cover the costs of doing journalism amid an age of rapidly changing technology and shifting trends in the media economy.

ing community and support group here.” Becky Tipton said that these new beekeepers could be the saving grace of honeybees, which have faced decline because of factors including habitat loss and pesticide use. According to a joint study by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and Environmental Protection Agency, bee colonies have been dying at a rate of about 30 percent per year for the past several years. This is a phenomena that could have harsh effects, Tipton said, because of the role bees play in the environment. Pollinators, such as bees, flies, birds and butterflies, help plants reproduce by moving pollen from the male flower parts to the female. “We really strongly believe that the bee will be saved, not by the commercial beekeepers, but by backyard beekeepers, by people who have two, three or five hives,” Tipton said. “It will be a grassroots effort to save the honeybee. These people we’ll be talking to, I’m going to tell them, ‘You guys are it. You’re the ones who are going to make a difference, who are going to save the honeybee.’”

Another factor in saving the bees is establishing a habitat of native plants and flowers in which they can thrive. This will be the focus of the second workshop hosted by the Kansas Ru-

ral Center sometime this spring. The last workshop in the series will be an introductory course on marketing and selling honey and other hive products locally. “At the end of the series, we hope to have helped some new beekeepers, gotten people more aware of pollinator habitats in rural and urban areas, and showed beekeepers how to get their products out there,” Voigt said.

Bruno

LoLa

If you are looking for an older medium sized puppy, Bruno would be the pup to look at. He is a 7 month old Boxer Beagle mix and has brown black brindle markings. He would be a wonderful family dog.

Through no fault of her own, Lola has made her way back to us. She is a 5 year old American Pitbull mix and has a soft white with gray coat. She is a medium sized girl at about 41 lbs., so she is a good snuggle size. She can be a little shy, but it doesn’t take her long to warm up. Especially if you give her some yummy treats and scratch her ears.

Silver

Behind those big green eyes is a couch potato with legs. Tommy is almost 9 years old and weighs about 18 lbs. He is a Domestic Short Hair with grey cream tiger markings. He really isn’t a lap cat, but enjoys the attention he gets from the staff and volunteers. He is pretty passive when it comes to interacting with the other cats, so a multi-cat home would be fine for him.

The one thing you need to know about Silver is that he is a very social fellow. He has been hanging out in our adoptions office and is having a great time. He is 4 years old and is a Domestic Short Hair with a black with white coat. He weighs about 10 lbs., so he is about the perfect size for cuddling. Be sure to bring a collar and carrier to take him home.

LAWRENCE CITY COMMISSION Agenda highlights • 6:35 p.m. Tuesday • City Hall, Sixth and Massachusetts streets • WOW! Channel 25 • Meeting documents online at lawrenceks.org

City to consider state trail grant BOTTOM LINE City commissioners will consider applying for state grant funding for a hike and bike trail through East Lawrence and downtown.

BACKGROUND The trail would start near Hobbs Park at 11th and Delaware streets. It would travel through East Lawrence, pass by the old Santa Fe Depot, go under the Kansas River bridges in downtown and end near the Kansas River, north of Sixth and Kentucky streets. Eventually city officials hope to win another grant that would allow the trail to continue along the banks of the Kansas River and through Burcham Park. The city is seeking $500,000 in grant funding from the Kansas Department of Transportation. The city would match those funds with about $250,000 in local money. The county also has indicated it would provide $10,000 in funding.

Senate committee weighs court deadlines By John Milburn Associated Press

Topeka — A Kansas Court of Appeals judge said Friday that the judicial branch was doing its best to produce timely rulings and legislation to create deadlines was unnecessary. Judge Patrick McAnany told the Senate Judiciary Committee that judges and justices were aware of concerns about timeliness of decisions and were trying to prompt each other to pick up the pace. The committee is considering a bill that would create soft deadlines for the district courts, Court of Appeals and Kansas Supreme Court, meaning

the deadlines could be missed if proper notice was given to parties in the cases. District courts would have 120 days to rule on motions and nonjury trials; the Supreme Court and the Court of Appeals would have 180 days after oral arguments to issue rulings. McAnany said the 14-member Court of Appeals had its own internal system of the “60-day list” of those cases that were awaiting a ruling 60 days from their court hearing. Last year, the Court of Appeals disposed of 1,221 cases in an average of 51 days. “It seems to be fairly productive because of the numbers that you see,” he said.

By comparison, the Kansas Supreme Court disposed of 133 cases in an average of 288 days from the date of hearing. However, statistics from the Legislative COURTS Research Department suggested that civil cases heard in the past year took an average of 402.6 days — more than 13 months — to be completed. McAnany defended the figures, saying the Supreme Court typically receives more complex cases that require more consideration.

“I don’t fault them from taking more time,” he said, adding that what is decided often has great public interest and every word could “come back and bite them.” He also questioned whether the law would infringe on the court’s constitutional authority to oversee court administration. Senate Vice President Jeff King says six states have similar laws on time limits and can withhold pay from judges who are tardy in their rulings. King said those states all have similar provisions in their constitutions that give the judicial branch authority to administer court operations.

House panel delays vote on gun measure By John Hanna

tors want to ensure that carrying firearms while drunk or under the influence of drugs is illegal, so a committee has delayed a planned vote on a gun-rights bill partly to give members more time to hash out the language of such a ban. The House Federal and State Committee had planned to vote Friday on the measure, which strips cities and counties of any power to regulate guns. But members instead spent more than an hour reviewing changes suggested by the bill’s leading sponsor, Rep. Jim Howell, a Derby Republican, and postponed the vote until Wednesday.

— Rep. Jim Howell, R-Derby Howell’s changes included a new, broad declaration that it’s a misdemeanor to carry firearms under the influence of alcohol or illegal drugs. Federal law bans illegal drug users from owning guns, and a Kansas law authorizing people with state permits to carry concealed weapons forbids the permit-holders to do so under the influence. However, it’s not clear that Kansas law has a broader prohibition. “If someone is out hunting, for example, and they’re

drunk, that would be a violation,” Howell told the committee, describing how the law would change. “I believe someone who’s under the influence of drugs or alcohol shouldn’t be operating a firearm. This is a very good principle.” But committee members quickly became tangled up in the details. For example, Rep. Erin Davis, an Olathe Republican, said the language should be expanded to cover impairment by legal prescriptions that, when

State Rifle Association, sought assurances that the language wouldn’t hinder self-defense rights if, for example, someone who’s had drinks with dinner is accosted by an attacker in a parking lot. “You know, if I have two glasses of wine with my dinner, I’m fully capable of still defending myself,” Stoneking said. Jason Long, an attorney on the Legislature’s billdrafting staff, told her that people who are impaired still could take temporary possession of firearms to protect themselves, and Stoneking’s concerns were assuaged.

Cargill adds ‘textured beef’ wording to labels Lincoln, Neb. (ap) — Cargill, one of the nation’s largest meatpackers, has added wording to its labels on ground beef packages that indicates whether the meat inside includes a product that’s been called “pink slime.” Since Jan. 20, all of Cargill’s U.S.-produced, fresh, 100 percent ground beef products that contain what it calls “finely textured beef” will say so on a label, whether sold in bulk or in chubs directly to con-

sumers, the company announced this week. Cargill had said in November that it would add the labeling, the Lincoln Journal Star said. Cargill also said it has developed a website to answer questions about finely textured beef. Another company that makes the textured beef product, Dakota Dunes, S.D.-based Beef Products Inc., sued ABC News in September 2012 after the organization aired a story that used the phrase “pink slime.” The company said

the story mentioned only Beef Products Inc. and its product and misled consumers into believing the product is unhealthy and unsafe. The company said it lost business and had to close plants in Texas, Kansas and Iowa. It kept open a Nebraska plant that is still running at reduced capacity, but Beef Products spokesman Jeremy Jacobsen told The Associated Press on Friday that the other plants remained closed. An ABC attorney has

said the network in each of its broadcasts stated that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration deemed the product safe to eat and that the coverage never suggested the product was unsafe. Beef Products is seeking $1.2 billion in damages from ABC, ABC staffers and scientists who criticized the product. Jacobsen said his company has been encouraging its customers to add labeling similar to Cargill’s.

Bill would help home beer brewers Topeka — The Kansas House gave first-round approval Friday to a bill that would ease restrictions on the home brewing of beer, wine and cider. No one spoke against the measure during a brief debate, and the House’s voice vote advanced it to final action, which is expected Monday

Kansas law permits home brewing if the beer, wine or cider is made only for the brewer or the brewer’s family, LEGISLATURE meaning the product can’t be shared — unless the brewer obtains state licenses for manufacturing or distributing alcoholic beverages. The bill would permit home brewers to provide their products to guests or to judges at competitions, provided the brewer isn’t paid. The bill is being pushed by brewing clubs.

Because religion involves strongly held beliefs The Rev. John McFarland, pastor, Christ Covenant Reformed Presbyterian Church, 2312 Harvard Road:

Definitions: Hostility runs from hearty debate to bloodshed; some is healthy, some is evil. Religion pertains to strongly held ideologies, viewpoints, or philosophies purporting to describe ultimate reality, producing truth claims and ethical values adherents claim are worth propagating: “If more people agreed with me here, the world would be better!” Thus defined, we see how over recorded history hostility has also

characterized quests for land and treasure; interactions between tribes, races, and naMcFarland tions; and ideologies few call religions yet they also claim to tell “The Big Story” and offer “The Way Forward.” Communism, Nazism, and Fascism of the previous century were non-religious ideologies responsible for more bloodshed than all religious differences existing then. Simply observe: We cannot outlaw race, trade, and politics

simply because many have crossed moral lines to promote their interests in the name of human flourishing. Neither should we scorn religion per se because some promote theirs through violence. A more fruitful tact: Look within! James, Jesus’ half-brother, wrote: “What is the source of conflicts and hostilities among you? Your pleasures wage war among you. You lust and don’t have, so you murder. You’re envious and cannot obtain, so you fight and quarrel. When you ask [God], you ask with wrong motives so you may[pursue] your plea-

sures. But God gives greater grace. He’s opposed to the proud but gives grace to the humble. Submit and draw near to God, and He’ll exalt you.” Often our pleasures, lusts, and hostilities wear religious garb. Today’s question does not ask for a solution, but I offer a direction: What we need is a religion, way, truth, word, or God who is able and willing to deal with us personally, bringing about inner transformation, restoring shalom between/among the Spirit, self, neighbors, and creation. Is there such a Truth? — Send email to John McFarland at JMMLawrence@aol.com

Because religions are essentially world views we see as truth

l

The Rev. Gary O’Flannagan, pastor, Cornerstone Southern Baptist Church, 802 W. 22nd St.: When it comes to the area of religion what is really being discussed is worldview. A person’s religion is often how that person sees the world, how they live their life and why they think the way they do. So when different religions intersect as they are more and more today, conflict happens because world views are colliding. There is in our culture the idea that all religions should coexist, those who adhere to this tend to believe that all religions are equal and share in a com-

mon result. All religions can coexist but cannot possibly be equal because not all beliefs and ideas are equal, and there is just too much disparity in the beliefs and propositions every religion makes. Also all religions are not equal in result, and what I mean is the eternal result. Just do a basic study on world religions and you will see that various religious belief systems strive for different results. Some religions deal with eternity, some don’t, some religions have deities, some don’t. Some religions want to improve the person for life in this world, while other religions strive to improve the person for the next.

So what should one do, I would urge all who are exploring a religion for a world view to O’Flannagan seek the truth. What is truth a man once asked? Truth about existence, why and for what reason, truth about eternity, is eternity a reality, are there different forms of eternity? As a person I wrestled with these questions and I looked at a number of different religions and found nothing. Until I had an encounter with Jesus Christ, I didn’t like religion. Religion has too

many rules, too many regulations, too many tiresome requirements. But following Jesus Christ is about relationship, not rules, it’s about giving Him my daily life and it’s about eternal truth that speaks to our spirit. Jesus spoke of this to some people who questioned Him about truth: John 8:31-32, “To the Jews who had believed him, Jesus said, If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” So seek the truth and seek Jesus Christ. — Send email to Gary O’Flannagan at gary2_1962@ yahoo.com.

Facts don’t support medical assumptions Washington — Swedish researchers report that antioxidants make cancers worse in mice. It’s already known that the antioxidant beta-carotene exacerbates lung cancers in humans. Not exactly what you’d expect given the extravagant — and incessant — claims you hear made about the miraculous effects of antioxidants. In fact, they are either useless or harmful, conclude the editors of the prestigious Annals of Internal Medicine: “Beta-carotene, vitamin E and possibly high doses of vitamin A supplements are harmful.” Moreover, “other antioxidants, folic acid and B vitamins, and multivitamin and mineral supplements are ineffective for preventing mortality or morbidity due to major chronic diseases.” So useless are the supplements, write the editors, that we should stop wasting time even studying them: “Further large prevention trials are no longer justified.” Such revisionism is a constant in medicine. When I was a child, tonsillectomies were routine. We now know that, except for certain indications, this is grossly unnecessary surgery. Not quite as harmful as that once-venerable staple, bloodletting (which probably killed George Washington), but equally mindless. After “first, do no harm,” medicine’s second great motto should be “above all, humility.” Even the tried-and-true may not be true. Take the average adult temperature. Everyone knows it’s 98.6 F. Except that when some enter-

prising researchers actually did the measurements — rather than rely on the original 19th-century German study — they found that it’s actually 98.2. But if that’s how dicey biological “facts” can be, imagine how much more problematic are the handed-down verities about the workings of our staggeringly complex health care system. Take three recent cases: Emergency room usage. It’s long been assumed that insuring the uninsured would save huge amounts of money because they wouldn’t have to keep using the emergency room, which is very expensive. Indeed, that was one of the prime financial rationales underlying both Romneycare and Obamacare. Well, in a randomized study, Oregon recently found that

when the uninsured were put on Medicaid, they increased their ER usage by 40 percent. Perhaps they still preferred the immediacy of the ER to waiting for an office appointment with a physician. Whatever the reason, this finding contradicted a widely shared assumption about health care behavior. Medicaid’s effect on health. Oregon allocated by lottery scarce Medicaid slots for the uninsured. Comparing those who got Medicaid to those who didn’t yielded the following stunning result, published in the New England Journal of Medicine: “Medicaid coverage generated no significant improvements in measured physical health outcomes in the first two years.” To be sure, the Medicaid group was more psychologically and financially secure. Which is not unimportant (though for a $425 billion program, you might expect more bang for the buck). Nevertheless, once again, quite reasonable expectations are overturned by evidence. Electronic records will save zillions. That’s why the federal government is forcing doctors to convert to electronic health records (EHR), threatening penalties for those who don’t by the end of 2014. All in the name of digital efficiency, of course. Yet one of the earliest effects of the EHR mandate is to create a whole new category of previously unnecessary health workers. Scribes, as they are called, now trail the doctor, room to room, entering data. Why? Because the EHR are

so absurdly complex, detailed, tiresome and wasteful that if the doctor is to fill them out, he can barely talk to and examine the patient, let alone make eye contact — which is why you go to the doctor in the first place. Doctors rave about the scribes, reports The New York Times, because otherwise they have to stay up nights endlessly checking off boxes. Like clerks. Except that these are physicians whose skills are being ridiculously wasted. This is not to say that medical practice should stand still. It is to say that we should be a bit more circumspect about having central planners and their assumptions revolutionize by fiat the delicate ecosystem of American health care. In the case of EHR, for example, doctors were voluntarily but gradually going digital anyway, learning through trial and error what best saves time and money. Instead, Washington threw $19 billion (2009 “stimulus” money) and a rigid mandate at the problem — and created a sprawling mess. This is not to indict, but simply to advocate for caution grounded in humility. It’s not surprising that myths about the workings of the fabulously complex U.S. health care system continue to tantalize — and confound — policymakers. After all, Americans so believe in their vitamins/supplements that they swallow $28 billion worth every year. — Charles Krauthammer is a columnist for Washington Post Writers Group.

PUBLIC FORUM

KCI boondoggle To the editor: Monday’s editorial, “KCI Costs” was right on target. Statements of those favoring a new single terminal are off base. They claim business leaders don’t like the present terminals. Business leaders actually fly private jets to the downtown airport.  Other frequentflying business travelers appreciate the extremely short distances between the plane and the curb. I have passed through over 40 “world class” terminals in recent years and am not impressed by their bombastic architecture and extremely long walks, even with moving sidewalks.  Other veteran travelers agree that Kansas City can’t be beat for convenience. Last month, Kansas City closed terminal one, so only two terminals are now in use.  Indianapolis recently splurged on a $1.1 billion terminal and did it draw business? At the end of January they decommissioned one fourth of the check-in counters due to lack of business and airline mergers. Kansas City mainly needs to cover the bat-cave brown terminal ceilings with sparkly white paint and install a few skylights, then assure free wi-fi for all, to get  things into the 21st century. Having express bus service from Kansas City hotels and the downtown airport’s economy lot will be a greater benefit to traveling citizens than a billion-dollar boondoggle. Graham  Kreicker, Lawrence

Common sense To the editor: I worked at the post office back when the phrase “going postal” became widespread. There was a reason it did: Several well-publicized mass shootings in post offices. It took them a while to catch on, but eventually Congress prohibited guns in post offices. And in recent years, shooters have favored theaters, schools, churches and other targets-of-opportunity instead. It seemed like Congress was showing common sense. Turns out it was all part of the socialist plot to steal our Second Amendment rights. To the postal reorganization bill currently before Sen. Tom Carper’s Homeland Security committee, Sen.

Rand Paul has added an amendment to allow guns in post offices. No wonder Sen. Paul is a Tea Party favorite. He obviously feels, as they do, that the country’s peace and safety are most secure in the hands of heavily armed, irrational people. Thank goodness Kansas government uses common sense and tries to serve and protect citizens. Right? Steve Hicks, Lawrence

Broadband control To the editor: I am deeply concerned about legislation introduced in the Kansas Legislature that limits municipal home rule authority over broadband. Broadband infrastructure is too important to be managed from Topeka. Broadband is to the 21st century what roads were to the 20th. Cities that didn’t get highways in the 20th century withered and died. The same will be true of cities that don’t get ultra-high speed broadband service in the 21st century. No matter where you stand on the political spectrum, everyone can agree that it is the role of government to build and manage infrastructure. Whether it is streets, water systems, or parks; infrastructure is what communities need to thrive. Local government is great at deploying infrastructure. Taking away our city’s right to participate in the construction of broadband infrastructure is contrary to American ideals.  The proposed legislation takes away local control for the benefit of giant corporations.  It’s the worst kind of big government interference.  It is contrary to the fundamental tenant of conservatism: Local officials know best how to govern their communities. If residents are happy with broadband offerings then local governments won’t waste money expanding broadband access.  If, however, citizens are unhappy with their options then local governments are best suited to the task of working with industry to facilitate solutions. I’d like to encourage everyone in our community to engage with this important issue and tell the Kansas Legislature not to take away our city’s rights. We know what is best for our city, not some bureaucrat in Topeka. Joshua Montgomery, Lawrence, Wicked Broadband

Pebble Beach, Calif. — Clint Eastwood added another starring role at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am — life saver.

US job report weak, but also hopeful Washington — A second straight month of weak job growth renewed concerns Friday that the vigor displayed by the American economy late last year may be gone, at least for the moment.

The Labor Department’s monthly employment report showing a tepid gain of 113,000 jobs in January followed December’s increase of 75,000 — far below last year’s average monthly gain of 194,000. Yet the report provided some cause for optimism. Solid hiring last month in manufacturing and construction point to underlying strength.

It means Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew will have to employ bookkeeping maneuvers to keep the government functioning until Congress further raises the borrowing limit.

No bomb was found, he said. The man’s motive was unclear, but Mutlu said he had “requests concerning his own country” and wanted to relay a “message concerning sporting activities in Sochi.” Mutlu said there was no immediate indication that the man was a member of any terror organization and Mutlu did not give his name.

Ankara, Turkey — A Ukrainian man tried to hijack a Turkey-bound flight to Sochi, Russia, as the Winter Olympics were kicking off Friday, but the pilot tricked him and landed in Istanbul instead, where he was stealthily detained after a four-hour stand-off on a plane full of passengers, an official said. A Turkish F-16 fighter was scrambled as soon as the pilot on the Pegasus Airlines flight from Kharkiv, Ukraine, with 110 passengers aboard signaled there was a hi-

jacking sattempt, according to NTV television. It escorted the plane safely to its original destination at Sabiha Gokcen airport in Istanbul. Officials credited the pilot and crew for convincing the 45-year-oldman, who claimed he had a bomb, that they were following his wishes. Istanbul governor Huseyin Avni Mutlu said the suspected hijacker was arrested after a stand-off during which a negotiator convinced him to first allow women and children to be evacuated and later agreed to let all other passengers off the

HIGH SCHOOL BASKETBALL

Tom Keegan tkeegan@ljworld.com

KU RB signee easy to hype When the football signing day highlight video plays, the tendency is to love every player the way you love the backup quarterback before he gets his first shot. For one thing, it’s a highlight video, so nothing but the good plays make the cut. For another, the player hasn’t made a single bad play for your team yet, so you have no reason to do anything but let your optimistic side dominate your thoughts. Still, during Charlie Weis’ hour-long news conference to discuss the Kansas University recruiting class of 2014, the highlights shown of GardnerEdgerton running back Traevohn Wrench screamed “superstar in Wrench the making.” Careful not to hype recruits the way he did in years past, Weis had a little difficulty checking his tongue discussing Wrench. Who wouldn’t? “The first tape I watched, he rushed for about 400 yards in a high school game,” Weis said. “Touches the ball, goes for 20. Touches the ball, goes for 50. Touches the ball, goes for 70. Touches the ball, goes for nine. Nine’s a bad run for him. I mean, when you watch a game and a guy’s rushing for 300, 400 yards, how do you do that?” Dirk Wedd, against whose Lawrence High defense Wrench ran for 328 yards and three touchdowns in a 2012 playoff game, is qualified to answer that question. “I would guess that the highlight tape Charlie showed was just against Lawrence High,” Wedd said, guessing wrong. “By the end of the first quarter, we had taken him to the ground one time, ran him out of bounds three times and he had scored two times.” LHS won the game, 34-32, and Wrench made a lasting impression on everyone who saw it. (I watched an online streaming version of it in a hotel room in Waco, Texas. Does that make me a loser? If so, I was a very entertained loser that night.)

No. 2 LHS boys outlast No. 4 SM South in foul-fest By Benton Smith basmith@ljworld.com

With two of the top four boys basketball teams in Class 6A squaring off Friday night inside Lawrence High’s Jungle, every person in the gym expected an entertaining, free-flowing clash. Most of the on-court combat came on the defensive side, though, and ultimately the game was decided at the free-throw line, where the No. 2-ranked Lions went 30for-42 to survive their en-

counter with No. 4 Shawnee Mission South, 65-61. The teams combined for 47 fouls, and although LHS (122) made 14 of its 20 fourthquarter free throws, junior guard Anthony Bonner had to secure the victory with one last trip to the line with 2.5 seconds to play. He went 1-for-2, giving Lawrence a four-point lead and capping a 16-point, 11-rebound night for himself. Bonner said one reason for the defensive intensity — Lawrence went 16-for-52

Bob Huggins — whose West Virginia Mountaineers have won three of five road games in Big 12 Conference play this season and 28 league road battles in his seven seasons at his alma mater — won’t be dwelling on historic Allen Fieldhouse in his pregame preparation today. “We’ve never worried about venues,” said the 60-year-old Huggins, who has 737 victories in a 32-year college coaching career. “Venues become venues because they’ve had great teams.

“We had to play hard on defense, because they had players who could match us,” Bonner said. “We were losing our legs on our shots, but I thought we did great. Especially Price Morgan. I thought he had a great game.” No one took advantage of the foul-fest — LHS picked up 22 personals and SMS earned 27 whistles — more than Lawrence’s sophomore forward.

out any fear.’ I think that is the attitude we had in the time I was at Cincinnati (16 years) and that’s certainly the attitude we’ve had here. We’ve won more road games than they have won here in years and years and years. I think it’s an attitude. Al can say it way better than me: ‘Go in without any fear,’” Huggins added. Of course, future Hall of Famer Huggins is sharp enough to know today’s road test figures to be one of the Mountaineers’ toughest of the season. He’s 0-6 lifetime versus KU.

“Probably the No. 1 pick in the draft, the No 2 pick in the draft and oh, by the way, the other guy on the front line was only a McDonald’s All-American. They are really talented,” Huggins said, asked what makes the Jayhawks (17-5, 8-1) so strong. “I think the other part is Bill (Self) can really coach,” Huggins said. “You are talking about a guy who is going up in the Hall of Fame, so when you look at it, where are the weaknesses? They’ve got really good players and lots of them.” Please see KU HOOPS, page 3B

BASEBALL New York — Alex Rodriguez ended his extended and acrimonious fight with Major League Baseball on Friday, withdrawing a pair of lawsuits and accepting a season-long suspension that marks the longest penalty in the sport’s history related to performanceenhancing drugs. Rodriguez, who has steadfastly denied using banned substances while with the New York Yankees, made the decision nearly four weeks after arbitrator Fredric Horowitz largely upheld the discipline issued last summer by baseball Commissioner Bud Selig. “I think it’s a good move for him,” former Commissioner Fay Vincent said. “A-Rod had no chance legally, and the commissioner got his authority validated.” Rodriguez was among 14 players suspended last summer following MLB’s investigation of a Florida anti-aging clinic accused of distributing banned substances. Given the harshest punishment, A-Rod was the only player to contest his penalty.

Kansas City, Mo. — Mike Sweeney will get another chance to help the Royals make the playoffs. Their longtime first baseman and arguably one of the most popular players in Royals history was hired Friday as club’s special assistant to baseball operations. Sweeney will help at spring training and assist general manager Dayton Moore and others on various projects. “We’re thrilled as an organization that Mike will be joining our baseball operations department,” Moore said. “He’s a tremendous leader and I’m confident that he will impact our players and staff in positive way.” Sweeney was a five-time All-Star for the Royals, and the cornerstone of the franchise from 1995-2007. He was a career .297 hitter who finished with 215 homers and 909 RBIs, even though he dealt with persistent back trouble that caused him to miss long stretches of time. He played briefly with Oakland, Seattle and Philadelphia before retiring in 2010. Sweeney still holds the Royals record with 144 RBIs during the 2000 season, and narrowly missed the American League batting title when he hit .340 in 2002. He ranks in the top six in franchise history in 17 offensive categories, including batting average and home runs. Also on Friday, the Royals secured outright waivers on left-hander Everett Teaford and assigned him to Triple-A Omaha with an invitation to spring training. Teaford was designated for assignment on Jan. 29, when the Royals acquired right fielder Carlos Peguero from Seattle.

PRO FOOTBALL

Chiefs release DB Robinson Kansas City, Mo. — The Chiefs parted ways with veteran defensive back Dunta Robinson, who never quite lived up to expectations last season, and signed CFL wide receiver Weston Dressler on Friday. Robinson was just one year into a $13.75 million, three-year deal that the Chiefs hoped would provide a veteran presence in what became a vastly retooled defensive backfield. Instead, Robinson was slowed by a series of nagging injuries and appeared in only nine games, making 14 tackles and defending just two passes. He was also part of a defense that was torched by Indianapolis wide receivers in a loss that knocked Kansas City out of the playoffs. The move was widely expected not only because the 31-year-old Robinson struggled most of the season, gradually losing playing time to undrafted free agent Marcus Cooper, but also because the cash-strapped Chiefs would save more than $3 million.

Allen fires 60, leads Allianz Boca Raton, Fla. — Michael Allen matched the Champions Tour record with a 12-under 60 on Friday in the Allianz Championship, finishing the first round with an eagle and 10 birdies. The 55-year-old Allen became the ninth player in the history of the 50-and-over tour to shoot 60 and the first to accomplish the feat on a par-72 course.

Walker, Spieth tied at Pebble Pebble Beach, Calif. — Jimmy Walker and Jordan Spieth have been nowhere close to each other in the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am — except atop the leaderboard. Walker played bogey-free in the wind and rain at Spyglass Hill for a 3-under 69. Spieth was down the coast at Monterey Peninsula, where he made a birdie on his last that he described as the best of his young career. That gave him a 4-under 67.

KU to honor 1974 Final Four team By Gary Bedore gbedore@ljworld.com

Kansas University’s 1973-74 Final Four team will be honored during a first-half timeout at today’s KU-West Virginia basketball game in Allen Fieldhouse. Players and coaches from the squad are in town to celebrate the 40th anniversary of that Big Eight championship team, which reached the Final Four, where KU fell to Marquette, 64-51, in the semifinals and UCLA in

the consolation game in Greensboro, N.C. “Time goes fast,” said former KU coach Ted Owens, who remembers that team fondly. “What we had was balance. We started Tom Kivisto, Dale Greenley, Roger (Morningstar), Norm (Cook) and Danny Knight. Tommie Smith and Rick Suttle were called ‘super subs’ and played as much as those guys did,” Owens said. “We lost at Kansas State (during 13-1 conference season) then beat

KU hoops “

Self has reminded his team there’s room for a lot of “growth and improvement.” “We’d better get better or it’s going to end sad,” he said of the season. Today’s game could go either way, Self said: “It’ll be a good challenge. They’re athletic, we’re athletic, there should be a lot of possessions, and it should be a fun game to watch.” l Dunk talk: Self was asked to identify the best dunker he’s ever coached a day after NBA rookie Ben McLemore was selected to compete in the league’s slam dunk contest during All-Star weekend. “Wiggs could be if he wanted to be. I’m not sure it interests him that much. It actually takes energy to do that,” Self said, needling freshman Andrew Wiggins. “I’d say Ben probably. Elijah (Johnson) when he first got here was off the charts. He lost some of his hop after he’d been here for a while, after we rode him hard for four years. J.R. Giddens was a great dunker. J.R. could fly. Ben liked to show off how athletic he was more than anybody we’ve ever had here. He’ll do something funky in the dunk (contest) — he may not win it, but he’ll do something funky that I guarantee it will definitely put him in contention.”

l This, that: KU sophomore walk-on Tyler Self, who suffered a torn ligament in his foot in October, definitely will redshirt the season, coach Self said Friday. ... Self said freshman Conner Frankamp, who recently suffered a knee injury, is 100 percent. “Conner hasn’t had a great year from a production standpoint in games, but he’s gotten a lot better. He’ll be ready next year when his number is called, and hopefully he’ll be ready if his number is called later on this season, because I guarantee it will be ... ” Self said ... Rashad Vaughn, a 6-5 senior from Findlay Prep in Nevada, said Friday he will announce his college choice Tuesday, not today as originally planned. He’s said to be favoring Iowa State and UNLV over KU, North Carolina and Kentucky. l Nix the NBA talk: Self said players and their families should not be thinking about the NBA right now. He said runners and agents try to get to families about this time of the season. “People that want him to leave, they’re going to be relentless in trying to convince the player’s people that it’s in the best interest to leave. So that’s why it’s real important that families and people close to the kids understand that, ‘Hey, there’s no reason to listen to anybody right now,’” Self said. “The only thing you should listen to is just, ‘Hey, I want my son or my guy to finish his college season as good as he possibly can with the least amount of distractions, and then we’ll make a decision after we gather information after that.’”

sive he’ll make you miss. And if you hang back because you think he’s going to dance, he’ll run over you. He’s got both of those. That’s unique for a high school back.” Wedd said that night he had a flashback to his days as an assistant coach at Wichita State. “When I saw him in

person, I said, ‘I’ve seen someone who runs like that.’ He’s got kind of a high waist and when I was at Wichita State we played SMU,” Wedd said. Eric Dickerson? “Eric Dickerson,” Wedd said. Now, Dickerson was 6-foot-3, 225 pounds and ran a 4.3 40. Wrench is

pliment to Huggins’ Mountaineers, who enter 14-9 overall and 6-4 in the league with four wins in the last five games. “They’re probably as explosive as any guard pair with Staten and Harris as anybody in our league,” Self said of Juwan Staten, who averages 18.1 points and 6.0 assists, and Eron Harris, right behind at 17.5 ppg. “They’re quick, and it seems like to me this is the type of team that ‘Huggs’ likes coaching.” Guard Terry Henderson nets 12.5 ppg and forward Devin Williams 7.3 boards. As a team, West Virginia averages just 9.7 turnovers a game. “They have some great scorers, great guards, so we have to be aware of them,” KU forward Perry Ellis said. “We have to come out like we did against Baylor, real aggressive.” The Jayhawks bounced back from their only conference loss of the season in rolling Tuesday at Baylor, 69-52. “I think we got a little lax, where maybe we lost our edge a little bit going down to the Texas game,” Self said of an 81-69 road loss a week ago. “We didn’t play with that competitive edge. I made a mistake. I probably complimented them a little bit too much when things were going well, and I think they mistook that me being nice to them maybe as me being soft to them, and I don’t think that we need to allow it to happen with a bunch of young kids.”

There was a great celebration on Jayhawk Boulevard,” Owens recalled “It was a special time on campus.” As far as the NCAAs ... “we had a very tough game with Creighton in Tulsa (55-54 victory in Midwest Regional semifinal). Oral Roberts beat Louisville. We played Oral Roberts and they still call that ‘The game’ in Tulsa. Most people regard that as the greatest athletic event in Tulsa history.

We were down nine with three minutes to go,” Owens added of KU’s 93-90 overtime win over ORU, which propelled KU to the Final Four. “It’s one of those things ... the year before we found a way to lose close games. The following year we believed we somehow were going to win every night,” Owens said. “Marquette that Final Four was extraordinary. UCLA had a great team but lost to North Carolina State in a couple overtimes in one semifinal.”

Among the players returning today: Cris Barnthouse, Bob Emery, Greenley, Kivisto, Morningstar, Smith, Suttle and Donnie Von Moore. Cook and Knight are deceased. Assistant Duncan Reid is expected to be on hand plus graduate assistant Bob Flickner and Polly Miranda, wife of assistant Sam Miranda, who is deceased.

BRIEFLY KU sprinter Dixon sets 500 record New York — Kansas University senior sprinter Diamond Dixon posted one of the fastest 500-meter times ever by a collegian as she claimed an easy victory in the event Friday night inside The Armory Track & Field Center. Eleven other Jayhawks turned in personal record performances as both the men’s and women’s squads wrapped up a solid first day at the Armory Collegiate Invitational. Dixon was never threatened in her first career 500-meter race as she led the 2.5-lap race from start to finish. She crossed the finish in 1:10.06, two seconds ahead of the runner-up finisher. Her mark improved on Shayla Wilson’s twoyear-old school record by more than three seconds. The Houston native’s time was also the fastest run by an American in 2014 and put her just .01 seconds from being one of the alltime 10 fastest Americans in the event. The Jayhawks return for day two of the Armory Collegiate Invitational today.

FOUR FREE STATE SENIORS WHO SIGNED DIVISION-I LETTERS OF INTENT on Wednesday celebrate at a ceremony on Friday in the FSHS library. The signees are, from left, Jessica Ferguson (soccer, Gardner-Webb University), Olivia Hodison (soccer, University of Missouri-Kansas City), Madeline Dieker (soccer, University of Portland) and Alexa Harmon-Thomas (track and field, University of Texas).

Firebirds celebrate D-I signings By Bobby Nightengale bnightengale@ljworld.com

Four of Free State High’s future Division-I athletes not only have to wait for their spring seasons to begin, but they also had to delay their signing day ceremony for two days. Three girls soccer players, Madeline Dieker, Jessica Ferguson and Olivia Hodison, along with track & field heptathlete Alexa Harmon-Thomas, sent in their letters of intent to their future colleges on Wednesday, but school cancellations forced them to wait until Friday afternoon to hold their ceremony in the FSHS library. “That was crazy,” said Dieker, who signed with the University of Portland. “We ended up signing in our house (on Wednesday) like all of the other athletes did, but it was fun to come out today and have the community and all of our friends together to support us.” All of the girls said the rescheduling and cancellations were stressful, but it also had a positive effect. “The snow day kind of put a damper on things because we had to keep pushing the celebration back,” said Hodison, who will play for the University of Missouri-Kansas City. “I don’t know, it made me appreciate this day a lot more.” Harmon-Thomas added: “I definitely was really excited for Wednesday, but it kind of stretched it out so that was really good.”

With family, friends and coaches in attendance, the ceremony was an opportunity for all of the athletes to reflect on the road that led to a future in collegiate athletics. “It feels wonderful,” said Ferguson, who signed with GardnerWebb. “It feels like all my effort and all this work has been going into this, and it’s a relief to finally know where I’m going and that the work paid off.” For some Firebirds, signing also marked the end to a long recruiting process. “It’s kind of a weight off my shoulders not having to worry about it anymore and knowing where I’m going for sure,” said Harmon-Thomas, who will compete for the University of Texas next year. Though the girls can patiently wait for the spring season to begin, they were happy they didn’t have to wait any longer for signing day. “It feels awesome,” Hodison said. “I’ve been waiting for this day for a really long time and I’m really happy I got it done.”

LHS signees honored Lawrence High held its signing day ceremony for four football players on Friday afternoon. Zay Boldridge signed with Highland Community College, Alex Jones is headed to Pittsburg State University, Kieran Severa will play for Drake University and Kyle Wittman signed with Baker University.

BRIEFLY FSHS swimmers Haskell women top league prelims lose, 66-47 Olathe — Free State’s Jordan Portela had the fastest times in the 200yard freestyle and 100yard butterfly during the preliminaries of the Sunflower League boys swim meet Friday at California Trail Middle School. Portela swam 1:45.15 in the 200 freestyle and 52.29 in the 100 butterfly. The Firebirds’ Canaan Campbell was tops in the 500 freestyle in 4:55.19, and swam on the 200-yard medley relay team with Portela, Josh Terrell and Jack Ziegler that turned in the fastest prelim time (1:41.12). Lawrence High’s top preliminary finish was seventh place by the 200 medley relay team of Caleb Axlund, Kiefer Stellwagon, Tim Schraad and Darren Rawlings. l

Omaha, Neb. — The Haskell Indian Nation University women’s basketball team found itself in a 17-2 hole after the game’s first six minutes and could not recover in a 66-47 loss against the College of St. Mary on Friday. The Indians (10-14, 4-4) play at Waldorf College at 3 p.m. today.

There were no easy shots for Free State High’s boys basketball team on Friday night. The Firebirds struggled to score after halftime and couldn’t hold off Shawnee Mission Northwest in a 50-43 loss at FSHS. Free State shot 59 percent in the first half before going 3-for-24 (12.5 percent) from the field afterward. “I thought we got fine looks,” Firebirds coach Chuck Law said. “We had some tough in-andouts. We didn’t get a lot of rolls, but that’s the nature of the game. But the shots we missed around the bucket are absolutely inexcusable. That’s just a lack of focus and a lack of toughness to get to the rim and finish.” Free State (9-5) led, 3937, after the third quarter, but the Cougars (11-3, ranked No. 7 in Class 6A) began the fourth by scoring on their first three possessions to take a four-point lead. The Firebirds didn’t score until

FREE STATE’S BLAKE WINSLOW (11) HAS HIS SHOT BLOCKED by Shawnee Mission Northwest’s Warren Specht on Friday at FSHS. SMNW won, 50-43. Cole Moreano made a layup with 2:53 remaining. SMNW’s Brady Skeens hit a jumper to give the Cougars a 45-41 lead before senior Khadre Lane made a pair of free throws, which were the last points scored by the Firebirds with 2:22 left in the game. “We missed a bunch of bunnies and we weren’t playing with a lot of energy through the whole game,” said Lane, who completed a double-double with 14 points and 11 rebounds. “The ball was just dropping for us in

the first half. Like we’ve always said, if you’re not going to play with energy, you’re not going to win and that’s exactly what happened.” The Cougars opened the second half on a 9-2 run to tie the game, but Lane and junior Justin Narcomey made three free throws. SMNW’s Jake Horner tied the game once again with a threepointer with 36 seconds left in the third quarter, but senior Blake Winslow swished a jumper at the buzzer.

Turnovers: SMNW 13, Free State 14.

The Firebirds missed their first eight shots to open the fourth quarter. “They’re long but that’s no excuse, we’ve got good athletes missing shots,” Law said. “I don’t know how many shots we took inside of eight feet and how many we missed. We scored 11 pathetic points in the second half. You’re not going to beat one of the top-five teams in the state arguably, scoring 11 points in the second half.” The Firebirds will travel to Shawnee Mission North on Tuesday.

Free State High’s girls basketball players didn’t get beat by Shawnee Mission Northwest on Friday night at FSHS. They got lost. The Firebirds, who were trailing for the entire second half, cut their deficit to two points when senior Scout Wiebe made a jumper with 2:47 remaining. Next, SMNW missed three consecutive free throws, but Free State turned the ball over and gave up an offensive rebound on a missed free throw. The Cougars took advantage of the offensive rebound when they made the following two free throws for a four-point lead and the Firebirds couldn’t get any closer in a a 59-53 loss. “We had every opportunity to (win), and it was little things like we didn’t box out on free throws, we didn’t foul when we were

We just kind of messed up on stuff.” Free State didn’t take advantage of fouling or double-teaming late in the game when the Cougars had their post players handling the ball. “The disappointment is we had an opportunity and a large portion of our kids seemed very indifferent on what the outcome of the game was,” Duncan said. “I don’t think that’s the case, but that’s what their body language and discipline showed. It’s extremely disappointing.” Free State will head to Shawnee Mission North on Tuesday.

18 points and five rebounds. The Lions also had to find a way down the stretch to beat SMS without their floor leader, sophomore point guard Justin Roberts. He fouled out with 3:47 left in the game, and LHS up, 52-47. But right after SMS senior guard Devin Newsome drew Roberts’ fifth foul and hit two free throws, the Lions answered. Junior guard John Barbee (nine points, four assists, four steals) hit a cutting Bonner for a layup. LHS coach Mike Lewis said finishing without Roberts (nine points, two assists) proved the Lions’ depth. “We’ve got seven, eight or nine guys who can come in on any given night and help us out,” Lewis said.

By the time Lawrence High’s girls basketball team finished its 71-52 home loss to Shawnee Mission South Friday night, coach Nick Wood had moved past the 41 shots the Lions missed. In fact, a 33-percent shooting night was the least of the coach’s concerns. Wood couldn’t fathom the way LHS (4-10) had broken down defensively, allowing the Raiders (86) open lanes to the hoop, not only in the half court, but also against pressure defense. So even though SMS finally hit a lull in the third quarter, the Lions couldn’t capitalize. “We had to take off our pressure defense,” Wood said, “because we just weren’t being successful whatsoever. It was more of a detriment than an asset to us.” LHS opted, instead, for half-court defense. “It’s frustrating, because (pressure) has been our identity all season long,” Wood said, “and for some reason tonight we came out with no energy. We were flat in that first half, and it was the worst defensive performance I’ve probably

That’s on me that I didn’t have them ready to play.” Going 1-for-9 from the floor in the third quarter just made things worse for LHS, which trailed by 13 at the half, but entered the fourth quarter down 26. While Lawrence senior forward Makayla Bell scored her team’s only basket in the third, Raiders senior guard Allison Hines (game-high 28 points) drilled three three-pointers in a row in the final four minutes of the quarter.

Bell finished with 11 points and seven rebounds. “We had plenty of looks all game long,” Wood said. “It wasn’t an offensive issue at all.

2014 WINTER OLYMPICS

Sochi Games open with focus on ‘new Russia’ By Rachel Blount Minneapolis Star Tribune

Sochi, Russia — When he was asked what impression he wanted to make with Friday’s Opening Ceremony of the Olympic Games, creative director Konstantin Ernst made it clear: There would be no bears, no rosy-cheeked nesting dolls or other worn stereotypes. “I wanted people all over the world to meet, understand and know us as Russians,’’ he said. “The real Russians, untainted by decades of propaganda and the Cold War.’’ Yet in rejecting the old propaganda, Ernst’s extravaganza kicked off a Winter Games meant to serve a similar purpose. President Vladimir Putin coveted the Olympics as a means to fashion a new image of Russia for the world and to convince its people that it is still a vital, vibrant nation. Friday, he looked on stoically from the President’s Box in Fisht Olympic Stadium as that vision began coming to life, before 40,000 spectators and a worldwide television audience of millions. The ceremony could not completely escape the troubles that have shadowed these Winter Games, the first held in Russia. Early on, five illuminated snowflakes in the center of the stadium were supposed to morph into the Olympic Rings. Only four managed to do so, a painful reminder of the incomplete hotel rooms and other problems that have dominated the conversation leading up to the Games. International Olympic Committee President Thomas Bach made a nod to another hot-button

Several lines were dedicated to rejecting discrimination, embracing tolerance and bringing people together, a longtime Olympic theme that seemed more pointed in a country sharply criticized for its treatment of gays. But Bach also stood next to Putin and praised the “new Russia’’ for the speed with which it built Sochi into an Olympic host city. While much of the ceremony reflected Russia’s serious, reflective nature and respect for the past, the country’s leaders clearly hope these Olympics can peel back a layer of the onion dome to unveil a fresh look at this enigmatic nation. “When we set out on this journey, we tried to open the doors to the future, to break down ste-

reotypes to reveal a new Russia to the world,’’ said Dmitry Chernyshenko, president of the Sochi Olympic organizing committee. “Today, this future is here.’’ One thing has not changed. Russia showed it still is a master of pomp and ceremony, putting on a show that mixed the avant-garde with the sternly traditional. A touch of winter — absent all week in this subtropical resort town — finally showed up, as a chilly breeze off the Black Sea swept through the coastal stadium. The past seemed everpresent throughout the evening. Much of the show played out as a history pageant, complete with tsars, Bolsheviks and Peter the Great. There were snippets of Tolstoy

and Tchaikovsky, ballet and the Red Army Choir. There also was Russian pop music, sports figures illuminated by LED lights and a little girl named Lubov — “love’’ in Russian — meant to symbolize the country’s march toward the future. The athletes emerged from an underground tunnel in the middle of the stadium onto the world’s biggest catwalk, modeling everything from Armani tracksuits (the Italians, naturally) to shorts (Bermuda and a handful of other nations not known for winter sports). The American delegation, in the Ralph Lauren patriotic patchwork sweaters that have widely been viewed as a fashion don’t, did not include the women’s hockey team. The players voted

to stay in their Olympic Village home and watch on TV so they could rest for today’s noon game against Finland. The 225-member home team was greeted with riotous applause, something it hopes to hear over and over during the next two weeks. While there has been plenty of talk about the $51 billion spent to stage the most expensive Olympics in history, it was also revealed this week that Russia has spent $86 million per year on its sports programs since it was awarded the Games, along with another $374 million on sports facilities. There is enormous pressure on its athletes to do well. They begin in earnest today, when the first medals of the Sochi Games will be awarded

in five sports. The lighting of the Olympic Cauldron was a reminder of past Winter Games glory, with former hockey player Vladislav Tretyak and former figure skater Irina Rodnina — who have six Olympic medals between them — setting the torch to the cauldron outside the stadium. These Games now belong to the athletes, who will write much of their legacy over the next two weeks. “They have trained for years for a moment that will leave an indelible mark in history,’’ Chernyshenko said. With his country having done the same, the new Russia will be hoping for nothing less. l Daily event schedule on page 8B

Magic 103, Thunder 102 Orlando, Fla. — Tobias Harris slammed home a fast-break pass from Maurice Harkless at the buzzer to give Orlando a victory over Oklahoma City on Friday night. With the Thunder leading 102-101 in the closing seconds, Kevin Durant missed a jumper to set up the last-second play, which was reviewed by officials and upheld. Harris led the Magic with 18 points, followed by Arron Afflalo with 16. Orlando’s bench outscored the Oklahoma City’s 36-23.

Dear Annie: I am a live-in caregiver for my grandmother. She has five children (including my father) who do nothing for her because they say Grandma is a mean person, which she is. Grandma feeds off of negativity. Nothing is ever good enough, and she blames everyone else for her failings. I go out of my way to make Grandma’s life easier, and it is either never good enough or she doesn’t care. I have threatened to move out numerous times, but then Grandma walks on eggshells until the dust settles, and everything goes back to normal. I am at the end of my rope. But I also have a conscience and am afraid that if I move out, her children will put her into an assisted living center. — Frustrated Charles

Annie’s Mailbox

Marcy Sugar and Kathy Mitchell

Dear Charles: You are a caring grandson, but please don’t let Grandma blackmail you into a situation that is no longer tenable. Does Grandma have money to pay a caregiver? Would your aunts and uncles be willing to help foot the bill in order to have Grandma cared for? Look into the cost of hiring someone to live in the home. But also check out senior housing, including assisted living

The ‘Dead’ comes back to life The fourth season of “The Walking Dead” (8 p.m. Sunday, AMC) finds survivors of the prison farm scattered to the winds, or rather, the abandoned suburbs. That means far more scenes of fighting off shuffling monsters and no more attempts at education and agriculture and other signs of civilization. Tonight’s episode alternates between scenes of nail-biting suspense in a haunted house and moments of machetewielding decapitation. There isn’t much room for conversation.

As if to throw down the gauntlet and challenge “The Walking Dead” viewers to choose between their two favorite cult shows, HBO offers “Game of Thrones: Ice and Fire: A Foreshadowing” (7:45 p.m. Sunday), a peek at the new season, arriving April 6.

Saturday’s highlights

Olympics coverage (7 p.m., NBC) includes: figure skating, snowboarding and freestyle skiing.

Will Smith stars as a striving single father in the 2006 drama “The Pursuit of Happyness” (7 p.m., ABC).

We all know no good can come from “The Girl He Met Online” (7 p.m., Lifetime).

An Internet star extends 15 minutes of feline fame on “Lil BUB’s Special Special” (8 p.m., Animal Planet). Amy Sedaris co-stars.

Matthew McConaughey, Julianne Moore and Sheryl Crow appear on “The Graham Norton Show” (9 p.m., BBC America). Cult choice A plain miss (Olivia de Havilland) falls for the charms of a schemer (Montgomery Clift) in the 1949 drama “The Heiress” (7 p.m. Saturday, TCM), an adaptation of Henry James’ 1880 short novel “Washington Square.” Saturday series Accidents will happen on “Two and a Half Men” (7 p.m., CBS) ... Serial killers on “Rake” (7 p.m., Fox) ... Nathan lays a parent trap on “The Millers” (7:30 p.m., CBS) ... New clues about Red John on “The Mentalist” (8 p.m., CBS) ... Alarms go off at the FBI on “The Following” (8 p.m., Fox). Crime in the city on “48 Hours” (9 p.m., CBS).

BIRTHDAYS Actor Nathan Lane is 58. Rock musician Lee Ranaldo (Sonic Youth) is 58. Actor Thomas Calabro is 55. Actor-director Keith Gordon is 53. Reggaeton singer Daddy Yankee is 38. Actress Rebel Wilson is 28. Rapper Sean Kingston is 24.

options. Many of them are excellent places. Grandma undoubtedly will complain about the change, but she will get used to it and may even come to like it. You deserve to have a life, too. Dear Annie: Could you please inform your female readers that we are tired of seeing their behinds because they refuse to buck a fashion trend? I am talking about hideous low-cut jeans. Unless you are model thin, it’s hard to look good in these jeans. And if something hangs over, they’re not for you. Do women have no sense anymore? It is disgusting to see someone’s behind hanging out. Young women have been misled to think jeans that sit at the natural waist are “mom jeans,” which is supposed to make them undesirable. It’s a mar-

JACQUELINE BIGAR’S STARS

For Saturday, Feb. 8: This year the unexpected amuses you rather than upsets you. Go with the natural flow of situations. If you are single, you will have a circle of admirers. If you are attached, the two of you have so much fun together that you often feel like two kids again. The Stars Show the Kind of Day You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult Aries (March 21-April 19)  Try to accept that your expectations might not pan out. You could be overwhelmed. Tonight: Chat with a friend. Taurus (April 20-May 20)  Your intuition could reveal a new perspective. Be more forthright about what is happening around you. Tonight: Your treat. Gemini (May 21-June 20)  You could be taken aback by someone’s words. This friend always has a surprise or some unpredictable element to his or her thinking. Tonight: All smiles. Cancer (June 21-July 22)  Be more direct in handling a personal matter. The other party might act as if he or she does not understand you. Tonight: Let others imagine where you are. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)  Join friends. You might be planning a special trip together before you know it. Tonight: Only where the fun is. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

keting ploy to sell more jeans. Women need to wake up and take a good, hard look at themselves. — Sick of Seeing It in Indy Dear Sick: The desperate need to look young afflicts a great many women, regardless of size and age. (Men, too.) If you are convinced you look terrific with your rear end hanging out, you will continue to wear those jeans. But we agree they are not flattering. Of course, we still can’t figure out why young men think it looks cool to have to hold up their pants with one hand because otherwise they would fall to their ankles. To each his own.

 You might want to meet certain responsibilities first. A loved one could resort to manipulation in order to get your attention. Tonight: Not at home. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)  Your imagination takes you to places that might not be realistic. Tonight: Try something new. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)  You might want to see a personal issue resolved, yet the other party seems unwilling. For now, just let this person work through his or her issues. Tonight: How about an old-fashioned date? Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)  You could see a matter differently from how a loved one sees it. Tonight: Go along with already established plans. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)  Your workaholic side takes over and pushes you to finish up a project. Several people might make an effort to distract you. Tonight: Make some calls. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)  Be playful. You delight others when you are spontaneous rather than intellectual. Tonight: Help others enjoy themselves. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)  Your efforts will make a difference. You even might affect a get-together in a positive way. Tonight: Out on the town.
