Bill that would require drug testing raises concerns By Scott Rothschild Twitter: @ljwrothschild

Topeka — Legislation that would require school districts to test employees for drugs if they are suspected of illegal drug use came in for intense questioning from some education officials on Monday. In addition to drug screening, Senate Bill 335 would require

teachers to submit fingerprints for background checks. State Sen. Greg Smith, ROverland Park, SCHOOLS said the proposals would help “provide a safe learning environment for our students.” He pointed to a national re-

port that said 10 percent of students are victims of sexual abuse by school personnel sometime during their school career. Education officials didn’t oppose the fingerprint background checks, saying that new applicants for a teaching license and those renewing a lapsed license already submit their fingerprints. And the State Board of Educa-

tion is considering a rule change that would ultimately result in files for all licensed educators’ fingerprints, according to Marjorie Blaufuss, an attorney with the Kansas National Education Association. But Blaufuss and Mark Tallman, associate executive director of the Kansas Association of School Boards, raised numerous concerns about the proposed drug

screening of school employees. Under the bill, all drug tests will be sent to the State Board of Education where a hiring school district would be able to access the test results. Blaufuss said that raised concerns about whether a drug test would let a potential employer know about Please see DRUG, page 6A

Roberts facing scrutiny over where he lives: Kansas or D.C.? By John Hanna Associated Press

Topeka — Republican Sen. Pat Roberts is facing questions about whether he lives in his native Kansas or the Washington, D.C., area. Roberts was born in To-

DEATHS Mary EllEn Flory Mary Ellen (Kinzie) Flory, daughter of Elso & Alice (Blickenstaff) Kinzie, was born on September 26, 1921 in Pratt County, Kansas. Mother peacefully passed from this life into eternity on February 7th, 2014 at the age of 92 years, 4 months and 12 days. She confessed Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior and was baptized on October 11, 1940. From the day of her public confession until her death, she enjoyed the rich blessings of fellowship in the Old German Baptist Brethren Church. On May 17, 1942 she was united in marriage to Harold Kenneth Flory, near Sawyer, Kansas. Together they worshipped, operated a dairy farm, traveled, raised four sons, and enjoyed 21 years of married life. On September 14th, 1963 her husband preceded her in death, after a tragic farm accident. Also preceding her in death were her parents; one son, Eldon; three brothers: Ray, Russell, and John; two sisters: Ethel Beeghley, and Lois Flory; two brothersin-law: John Beeghley, and Wayne Flory; one infant granddaughter, and one infant greatgranddaughter and great grandson. She is survived by: Son Donald and wife Kathy; daughter-in-law Cheryl and husband Michael Flory; Son Ralph; Son Merle and wife Judith; eight grandchildren, and seventeen great grandchildren, two sisters-in-law: Olive Kinzie an Anna Kinzie; as well as nephews, nieces, and friends. The beauty of a little prairie girl’s heart, mixed with the reality of hard times, and the fleshing out of her faith in God, is what made up the life we will remember. Waking up a widow at 41 years old, cows to milk, crops to harvest, wood to chop and boys to raise she was heard to say, “we are not quitting, we are going right on” and she did by the Grace of God and the help of many neighbors, friends, and brethren far and near. She demonstrated a servant spirit with much hospitality, joyfulness,

flexibility, availability, and endurance to the end. The struggle to embrace her losses, make a living, raise a family, pass on the faith, and bless others, kept her heart tender and hands busy night and day. Mother spent her time with Dairy herd management, gardening and quilting. Upon liquidating the dairy in 1983, she became a faithful vender at the Lawrence Farmers Market and was well known for her many varieties of delicious homemade breads. These are a few of the precious memories she leaves with us. Mother was a woman of faith and prayer, possessing the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit which is of great price in the sight of God. She often used three little words when disappointments came, “God knows Best.” For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens, therefore our loss is her gain. Funeral service will be 10 am Friday, January 15, at Willow Springs Old German Baptist Brethren Meeting House. Burial will follow at Pleasant Grove Cemetery, Douglas County, KS. Friends may call Thursday 9 am to 8 pm at the Rumsey-Yost Funeral Home where the family will great friends from 5 to 7 pm.

shooting, not a stabbing, which police call logs had previously indicated. “This was clearly a gunshot wound,” said Sgt. Trent McKinley, police spokesman. At 3:08 a.m. Sunday, officers responded to a 911 call about a possible stabbing at a unit in Northwinds Apartments in the 1100 block

of George Court. There, officers and medical personnel found Spottedtail, who had been shot and was dead, McKinley said. Investigators conducted interviews and processed the crime scene Sunday, and an autopsy was performed Sunday night. On Monday evening, detectives continued to investigate the circumstances of Spottedtail’s death. McKinley said he could not confirm whether it was a ho-

Kenneth P. Callicott was born on October 7th, 1923 on a farm 5 miles southwest of Harrison, Arkansas, the son of Alter Bayard Callicott and Mary Ben Callicott. Kenneth attended Harrison Public Schools and was a member of Future Farmers of America in which he attended several conventions in Kansas City, Missouri. He was a graduate of Harrison High School, class of 1941. After high school he attended Harding University in Searcy, Arkansas for a period of two years where he studied engineering. In August of 1944 he was drafted into military service with the Army. He attended basic training and was sent to Officer Candidate School in Fort Benning, Georgia. After graduation he was commissioned as a 2nd Lieutenant in the United States Army, Infantry Division. In the spring of 1945 he was assigned to the 1st Cavalry Division, 12th Regiment and was stationed in Yokohama, Japan. He spent one year in the occupation of Japan. He separated from military service in the fall of 1946. Kenneth then moved to Memphis, Tennessee and obtained a position with The Cotton Department First National Bank. It was in Memphis that he met the love of his life, Mary C. “Tyke” Landree whom he married on January 14, 1948. He remained faithfully by her side until his death. Kenneth and Tyke moved to Lawrence, Kansas in January of 1948 so Kenneth could study engineering at The University of Kansas. He was a member of the Dean’s List but a lingering illness contracted during his military service forced him to withdrawal in the fall of 1948. He worked two years for the Douglas County Engineering Department. In May of 1951 he went to work for FMC Corporation and worked there until 1969. Upon leaving FMC he was head manager of the purchasing department. In the summer of 1969, Kenneth became a licensed Real Estate Agent affiliated with McGrew Real Estate and became a partner with the firm in 1970. He retired in 1985. In his spare time Kenneth loved to hunt and fish, a joy he often shared with friends and family. He especially loved quail and duck hunting. He was a promoter of the firearms safety course to all his grandsons. He also loved

micide, and no arrests had been made. “There is no one in custody,” McKinley said. “There is no conclusion to this yet.” In 2011, Spottedtail pleaded guilty in Douglas County court for his part in a Feb. 26, 2011, attempted armed robbery of a man on Tennessee Street. Spottedtail was sentenced to 34 months in prison by District Judge Sally Pokorny. He was released from the Hutchinson Correctional

He was extremely fond of Big Band Music and Kenneth and Tyke took many trips to see The Jack Morgan Orchestra. He was President of The Knife and Fork club from 1971-1972 and was also the President of Douglas County Sportsman’s Club. Although he was not a member of St. Johns Church of the Evangelist he enjoyed attending Sunday Mass as well as St. John school functions with his wife and family. He was quiet and private about his faith but was quick to point out that he had a strong relationship with his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Most of all, Kenneth loved spending time with his family. He never passed up an opportunity to have lunch with his children or grandchildren. Later in life, Kenneth enjoyed regular visits from his great-grandchildren. Kenneth was a wonderful husband, father and grandfather who will be missed but not forgotten. Survivors include his with wife, Mary “Tyke” of Lawrence, daughters Nancy (Dennis) Copp of Lawrence, Donna (Scot) Hoffman of Lawrence and Mary “Punkin” (Art) Cherico of Hemingway, South Carolina.

KU alum gives $100K for startups By Ben Unglesbe Twitter: @LJW_KU

A Johnson County real estate developer has made the largest donation so far to a new Kansas University fund created to support university startups. KU alumnus Clay Blair III, of Olathe, gave $100,000 to the KU Venture Fund, which was developed by the university recently to provide initial capital to

new ventures started by KU faculty, students and staff. Blair owns Clay Blair Services Corp. and served as the first chair of the Kansas Bioscience Authority. Julie Goonewardene, president of KU Innovation and Collaboration, which partnered with KU Endowment Association to establish the KU Venture Fund, said money from the fund will help companies get to the stage where they can

more easily raise capital on their own. “One of the challenges we face is that so many of the companies we are starting at KU are really, really early and often don’t have revenue. It’s very difficult to get investment into the company because the risk profile is so high.” While money from the fund is raised philanthropically, Goonewardene said the fund will invest strategically, with an

eye for the commercial potential of the company. “We won’t just be making these decisions willy nilly,” she said. Outsiders with backgrounds in business, technology and science and experience in investing and starting companies will make recommendations for investments. Meanwhile, KU faculty and others trying to start businesses can get experience with working with investors,

Goonewardene said. Investment returns will go back into the fund. The eventual goal is to raise $500,000 for the fund, bringing it, with university matching funds, to $1 million. With the university investing, it could cash in on future profits if a company takes off, Goonewardene said. — Reporter Ben Unglesbee can be reached at 832-7173 or by email at bunglesbee@ljworld.com.

Some Lawrence High School students were out for a special night on the town Saturday when a random couple made the evening even more memorable. The group of 25 close friends was at Genovese, 941 Massachusetts St., eating dinner before the school’s winter formal Saturday. When the students went to pay their bill, they learned that a couple of strangers who had been sitting behind them had already picked up their tab. The man told the waiter he remembered how nervous he would get before his own formal dances in high school and therefore wanted to make the teens’ night a little easier. “The kids were blown away!” said Denise Berland, whose daughter, Abbey, was among the lucky students. “They will never forget that night and we, as parents, hope that when they are able, they will pay it forward.” She noted that many of the students are on student council and were involved in organizing the dance.

tea party candidate, has promised to serve only two, six-year terms in the Senate if he wins, and he said Monday that he’ll continue to practice medicine. The three-term senator and his wife own a duplex unit in Dodge City, but it has a tenant. He’s registered to vote at another Dodge City address less than half a mile to the south, a home belonging to another couple, longtime friends and supporters, where he rents a room and a bathroom for $300 a month. The owners, Cecil Duane and Phyllis Ross, did not return a telephone message left on Monday. Wolf said he was offended by Roberts’ joke, reported in the New York Times story, that at the home of his friends, the

work on the plan, which is expected to take at least a year. City Commissioner Mike Amyx, who also is a co-chair of the group, said he thinks the group should focus on updating Horizon 2020, rather than starting from scratch. “I think we’re fortunate to have a comprehensive plan that works very well right now,” Amyx said. “We just need to make sure it can serve us well beyond 2020.” Thellman said she anticipates the steering committee hosting several town hall-type forums across the county to gather input on a host of issues. The plan, as currently written, creates policies for issues such as where new commercial developments should be located, the protection of prime agricultural land, planning for future parks and open space, strategies for economic development and a host of other topics. Dates for future town hall meetings haven’t been set yet, but group members said they’ll work hard to reach out to a broad group of community members for input. “Participation from the public is going to be so important,” Thellman

Rep. Michael Houser endorsed Wolf publicly before the issue arose and said his biggest issue is that Roberts has been in the Senate “long enough.” senator has “full access to the recliner.” It’s not yet clear how much the questions hurt Roberts as he runs for re-election. The Kansas primary is Aug. 5. Roberts’ re-election campaign began the year with $2.24 million in cash on hand; Wolf’s had about $179,000. Republican state Rep. Michael Houser endorsed Wolf publicly before the issue arose and said his biggest issue is that Roberts has been in the Senate “long enough.” But state Rep.

said. “We want to see a lot of new faces and hear from a lot of new voices.” The steering committee won’t be responsible for approving any changes to Horizon 2020, but rather will make recommendations to the three governing bodies that will be responsible for approving updates to the plan: the Lawrence-Douglas County Planning Commission, the Douglas County Commission and the Lawrence City Commission. Here’s a look at the other eight members of the committee, who all either live in Lawrence or Douglas County: l Bill Ackerly, a strategic communications professional who works for the U.S. Army; l Clay Britton, a Lawrence-Douglas County planning commissioner; l Rick Doll, superintendents of Lawrence Public Schools; l John Gascon, a former Seattle architect and gallery owner who recently moved to Lawrence; l Lisa Harris, a transportation professional and former planning commissioner; l Kyra Martinez, a former urban planning consultant; l Stan Rasmussen, a Lawrence-Douglas County planning commissioner; l Scott Zaremba, an owner of convenience stores and other commercial property in the county.

Roberts’ home is insignificant, adding, “I send my Christmas card to Senator Roberts in Dodge City, and he gets it every year.” Property tax records available online from Ford County, where Dodge City is located, show that the duplex unit owned by Roberts and his wife had an appraised value of $104,800 for 2013. The one-story unit has 1,172 square feet of space, two bedrooms and three baths with a full basement, according to the records. Those records also list the Roberts’ address as Alexandria, Va. Roberts said he purchased the Dodge City duplex unit in 1992, and his latest U.S. Senate disclosure form says he receives between $5,000 and $15,000 a year in rental income a year from it. Also in the disclosure form, Roberts lists his Virginia home as being worth between $500,000 and $1 million.

a teacher’s use of a legally prescribed drug for a physical or mental disability. Divulging that information is illegal under the Americans with Disabilities Act, she said. Tallman raised several questions, including whether the bill required drug testing or allowed school districts to put in place drug screening policies. Blaufuss and Tallman said their organizations were taking a neutral position on the bill at this point. The committee took no action, but said it would study the issue further. According to the Lawrence school district, an employee who has violated the district’s drug-free schools policy may face a range of punishments from required participation in drug or alcohol testing and treatment to termination.

The 30,000-square foot facility is being planned on property recently donated to the district near 31st and Haskell streets. The estimated $5.7 million project is being funded with proceeds from the district’s $92.5 million bond issue. Patrick Kelly, director of career and technical education for the district, said the original plan for the facility called for adding four new programs: health sciences, computer networking, commercial construction and machine technology. But after consulting with area businesses and local governments, Kelly said, the list has now grown to include biotechnology and forensic science, law and government, and interactive design.

Youth

Jazmen Fowler A junior at Lawrence High School, Fowler was a member of Boys & Girls Club for five years and now works as a group leader, Van Velzen said. Fowler plans to attend college and she hopes to become a therapist, cosmetologist or real estate agent. “From the age of eight, I have known that I want to help people,” Fowler said. “I know what it is like to not have anybody to talk to about problems in life, and I feel that I offer good advice, too.”

FROM LEFT, JAZMEN FOWLER, Hannah Moyer, Precious Jacob, Marcya’ Floyd and Innocent Anavberokhai are candidates for the Boys & Girls Club of Lawrence’s Youth of the Year award.

“I want to be a role model and have young kids look up to me and be inspired to chase their dream,” Anavberokhai said.

Marcya’ Floyd A sophomore at Free State High School, Floyd has been involved in the Boys & Girls Club for five years, Van Velzen said. Floyd is close with her family and strives to be a role model for her three younger sisters. Floyd is Vice President of Keystone Club, Secretary of the Zeta Phi Beta Archonettes and is a member of Yoga Club, Can We Talk? and the Kansas City marching Cobras. After high school, Floyd plans to attend college out of state and pursue a career in acting or modeling. “I want to be known for setting examples and doing the right things,” Floyd said. “To me, anyone who does that is a hero in the community.”

Precious Jacob A recent graduate of Lawrence High School, Jacob has been involved with the club for two years and is now a group leader at Kennedy school as well as a dietary aide at Brandon Woods, Van Velzen said. Jacob plans to go to school to become an LPN, before transferring to Kansas University to study to become a registered nurse. With her medical knowledge, Jacob plans to travel to the Philippines to provide free check-ups and treatments.

“Along with hard work, you become a leader,” Jacob said. “People will look up to you because they see you as a role model — someone who works hard and never gives up in any situation.”

The schematic drawings show large areas marked as “lab space” where students will work on projects ranging from DNA analysis to youth court activities. They also include spaces for group discussions, visual presentations and brainstorming — or what educators often refer to as “ideation” — many of which would be separated by transparent walls to encourage more collaboration among groups. The Lawrence Chamber of Commerce is also proposing to develop an adult job training facility on adjoining property, and district officials say some high school programs such as machine technology will likely be located in that facility. Nevius said officials hope to break ground on the new facility this spring, with the goal of opening the new center for the 2015-2016 academic year.

LUCY SEAVER, LEFT, GETS HER BLOOD PRESSURE READ by Julie Baldwin, a registered nurse with the Douglas County Visiting Nurses Association. The VNA will celebrate its 45th anniversary with an open house Wednesday.

L

ucy Seaver and Julie Baldwin have become fast friends. Baldwin, a nurse with the Douglas County Visiting Nurses Association, knows all about Seaver’s late husband, Clarence, her dog, Secret, her grandchildren and greatgrandkids. Even though the two were thrown together out of necessity just a few short months ago, Baldwin has become crucial to Seaver’s life. Baldwin comes over to the 93-yearold’s Lawrence apartment a few times week, to take her vitals, manage her medications and even just listen. Over the past 45 years, numerous relationships like Baldwin and Seaver’s have

formed in Lawrence, thanks to the work of the Douglas County Visiting Nurses Association. In that time, the organization has morphed from a home health care agency with a handful of employees to a nonprofit that offers a variety of services with a staff of 115 and 60 volunteers. Lynn Rothwell founded the Visiting Nurses Association in February 1969 after seeing a need in the community for home health care, something that was then more common on the East Coast, where she grew up. VNA eventually became something more all-encompassing. It began providing hospice care to end-of-life patients in 1981. It signed a contract to provide medical services at the Douglas Please see VNA, page 8A

Dear Dr. Wes & Kendra: I heard you speak last fall about abstinencebased education. You said your thinking had changed from seeing it as a viable alternative to seeing it as kind of dangerous. Can you do a column on that and explain what you mean? Wes: I wasn’t implying that sexual abstinence is a bad thing, only that an abstinence-based sex education is so out of step with reality that it puts teens at risk. Though they’ve generally mastered birth control, as evidenced by lower birth and abortion rates, we all know teens aren’t ready for the emotional and psychological impact of sex. Yet, that profound bit of truth rarely gives pause to teenagers. Most will be sexually active by age 20. Try this analogy to understand why. Drug programs like D.A.R.E. emphasized saying “no” to drugs, while pushing the idea that marijuana was pretty much the same as any other drug. This worked great, until kids reached about eighth grade and started questioning those equivalencies. The backlash has produced an opposite effect such that marijuana is now idolized like some kind of sacred element of modern existence. Young people found our propaganda to be false, so they invented some of their own. The same thing has been happening with Please see SEX ED, page 8A

HEALTH NOTES Clinic fundraiser to feature Main Squeeze The JayDoc Free Clinic, Kansas University’s student-run free health clinic, will host the ninth annual JayRock benefit concert at 7 p.m. Feb. 21. This year’s headliner is the Main Squeeze, a funk-rock band from Bloomington, Ind., that was picked by Rolling Stone magazine to open for the Roots and Jane’s Addiction at the 2012 Super Bowl and is currently working on its second fulllength album with the help of Randy Jackson, from “American Idol.” JayRock 9 will take place at the Uptown Theater, 3700 Broadway, in Kansas City, Mo. Doors open at 7 p.m. Alien Jones opens at 8 p.m., and the main concert begins at 9. Tickets are $20 for general admission or

VNA County Jail in 1995, the same year it implemented its CareLink emergency notification program. It expanded to Topeka three years ago, opening a home care branch in the capital city. “From what we started with to what we are today is quite different,” said Cynthia Lewis, the current CEO of Douglas County Visiting Nurses Association. “We went from a very small home health program that did about 2,500 visits in its first year to a program that provides in-home care all through people’s life spans with more than 50,000 visits last year.” And with an aging baby boomer population and more people than ever expecting to stay at home until a higher age, VNA will continue to play a vital role in the community for some time to come. The agency also helps patients transition out from the hospital to home and not be readmitted. It offers bereavement services and support, including to families. It accepts patients regardless of their ability to pay, even if they’re on Medicaid or don’t have any kind of health coverage at all. What would Rothwell have thought of what the agency has become? Rothwell, who died in 2005, did have a chance to visit VNA’s offices, which fill the third floor of the Community Health Facility, 200 Maine St. “She was amazed and in awe of what she was seeing,” noted human resources manager Janice Johnson White, the agency’s unofficial historian. In the future, Lewis says she wants the organization to find a way to pay for patients who don’t meet Medicare’s requirements of being “homebound” but could still manage to stay at home. She would also like to one day offer palliative care.

An example of VNA’s work Seaver hooked up with VNA last fall like most patients do: through a referral from her doctor. Baldwin started stopping by a few times a week, to help treat Seaver’s health conditions from home. Eventually, Seaver’s doctor decided that she had less than six months to live, a result of regular strokes and other conditions. So Baldwin switched into hospice mode: managing pain, making life as comfortable as possible for Seaver. Seaver lost her husband, Clarence, in November 2010, a few months after the couple’s 70th anniversary. “I really would just as soon be dead,” she said on a recent day in her apartment, an addition onto the back of her daughter’s home. “But I’ve got to stay around to be strong for my granddaughter,” who was recently diagnosed with cancer. Not long ago, after Seaver kept startling whenever she woke up, someone suggested she go to bed hugging a lamb stuffed animal. “People often say, ‘How do you feel?’” said Seaver, clutching the fluffy doll while being engulfed by her big brown recliner. “How is a 93-year-old supposed to feel?” Baldwin tries her best to help Seaver feel better, either by administering pain medication or, more often, just being a shoulder to lean on. “You make the last part of their lives more comfortable,” Baldwin said. “They do become like family.”

I

knew what I was getting into when we decided to have kids. I knew that babies spit up, drool, go through an enormous amount of putrid smelling diapers, and that they tend to be pretty messy in general. Those are the things I was prepared to handle. What I wasn’t prepared for, though, was how much I’d let my own personal views on what’s disgusting evolve. I don’t know if it’s the lack of sleep, the enormous amount of love I have for my kids, or if I left part of my brain back at the hospital when I gave birth, but now that I’m a mom, I can be pretty gross. I now don’t even flinch when it comes to bodily fluids and the like. It can take two to three spit-up episodes on my shirt before I’ll actually go and change. If we’re out in public and my kid has something hanging out of her nose, I’ll probably just pull it off with my bare hands and wipe it on my own pants. Those of you without kids are probably dry heaving right now. My apologies, but it gets worse. So much worse. These acts of disgustingness are just the tip of the iceberg. With baby number two, I moved on to a whole new level of ewww. I think it just proves that parents will put aside any of their own discomfort for the sake of their kids’ well being. At least, that’s what I’m going with. Seriously though, this is what

every young girl who is told she’ll be looked down upon if she doesn’t wait until marriage, there’s a parent too uncomfortable to explain the real emotional aftermath of sex. For every guy that’s pressured by his friends to “lose it already,” there’s a parent afraid to teach him how to put on a condom. My friends have often joked, “You don’t have real parents.” No, my parents don’t let me party every weekend or fail to give me any responsibilities; my mom and dad simply respect me.

So when I reached an age when I had questions about sex, I knew they’d respect me enough to have answers. Back when I was still watching the Disney Channel, around the time I got my first kiss, my mom let me know she could be a source for “the talk.” She didn’t force me to listen to the whole spiel at that time, but she told me I could let her know when I was ready. Growing up in that safe, communicative environment, I knew I’d only be ready once I felt comfortable enough talk-

While my friends had pregnancy scares, my mom explained the emotional implications of this choice. I respect people who choose to abstain from sex until marriage. But adults must realize that few teens have that plan. Even if parents think their teens wouldn’t have sex, it’s safer to assume they’re

Divorce barriers A bill introduced in the Kansas Legislature last week would make it far more difficult to dissolve an unsatisfactory or even dangerous marriage in Kansas.

A

bill altering the grounds for divorce in the state of Kansas is drawing some well-deserved criticism. On the surface of it, the bill seems designed to make divorces more contentious and harder to obtain in Kansas. However, some language in the bill also sets up a situation in which it could become difficult, if not impossible, for one person to obtain a divorce without the agreement of his or her spouse. The bill introduced by Rep. Keith Esau, R-Olathe, would strike from Kansas law the word “incompatibility” as grounds for divorce. It then inserts eight new grounds for divorce, including abandonment of the “matrimonial domicile” for a year, physical or sexual abuse of the spouse or a child or conviction of a felony. Also among the grounds is if the “respondent has been convicted of the crime of adultery” as defined under the state’s criminal statutes. When was the last time an adultery case was even filed in Kansas, let alone the last time someone was convicted in such a case? Yet, the only way to obtain a divorce based on the adultery of a spouse would be to prove it in a criminal case. Many of the other grounds for divorce would be equally difficult to prove. Interestingly, the final addition to the list of grounds on which a divorce can be granted is if “both spouses have agreed to separate due to no fault of either spouse.” Although this bill has been portrayed as doing away with socalled “no-fault” divorce, it appears that isn’t the case, IF both parties agree. The larger problem, it seems is that if only one party is seeking a divorce, that person would have to show not simply that he or she is incompatible with his or her spouse, but that there is some other grounds for the divorce, such as adultery, physical or sexual abuse of a spouse or child or abandonment. That has the effect not only of making divorces far more contentious, often to the detriment of a couple’s children, but also increasing the possibility that a spouse could be trapped in a painful, or even dangerous, marriage because he or she can’t provide the kind of proof needed to obtain a divorce from a spouse that is fighting the action. “I think we’ve made divorce way too easy in this country,” Esau said last week. “If we really want to respect marriage, it needs to be a commitment that people work at and don’t find arbitrary reasons to give up.” Marriage is a wonderful institution, worthy of our respect, but the fact is, some marriages simply don’t work. Among those are some marriages that pose a mental or physical threat to one spouse and/or a couple’s children. It seems unlikely that anyone who ever has gotten a divorce would describe the process as “way too easy.” It isn’t easy, and the bill introduced last week could make it far too difficult for one spouse to get out of a toxic marriage.

Will Leningrad history move Putin? What’s the connection between the Sochi Olympics, Syria, and the Nazi starvation siege of Leningrad in World War II? Answer: Vladimir Putin. In 1941, Nazi Germany began an 872-day siege of the Soviet city of Leningrad designed to starve its population into surrender. The Nazi tactic claimed one million lives, and its horrors will never be forgotten by Russians. For Putin, the Leningrad blockade has a very special meaning, since he was born there shortly after the war. Putin’s older brother died during the siege, and his mother “stayed alive by a miracle,” he says. Just last month, Putin attended memorial services on the 70th anniversary of the city’s liberation. He’s so sensitive on the topic that the Kremlin is pushing to close TV Rain (Russia’s last independent cable station) because it asked viewers whether Leningrad should have surrendered. Yet, as the Olympics begin in Sochi, Putin is still backing a Syrian regime that has blockaded many towns and neighborhoods for more than a year. The choice: Surrender or starve. Shades of Leningrad, indeed. With the world’s eyes on Sochi, some had hoped that Putin might be open to humanitarian appeals on Syria during the Olympics. (No one doubts that Russian pressure could force Bashar al-Assad to let in more humanitarian aid.) Forty-seven prominent diplomats and human rights activists, including Mad-

With the world’s eyes on Sochi, some had hoped that Putin might be open to humanitarian appeals on Syria during the Olympics.” eleine Albright and 2003 Iranian Nobel laureate Shirin Ebadi, have asked the Russian leader to “Give the world a real Olympic Opening — Open Syria to life-saving aid.” Many humanitarian organizations have called for a binding U.N. Security Council resolution (one is now being drafted by Western and Arab nations, to be introduced later this month) that would call for unhindered delivery of humanitarian aid to Syrian civilians. Russia has already made clear it opposes this idea. True Russian indifference to civilian suffering in wartime is nothing new. I watched in 1995 as Russian heavy artillery relentlessly pounded civilian apartment buildings for hours on end in the Chechen capital, Grozny. But the cynicism of the Russian stance is illustrated by the deal they brokered last week to permit limited

food deliveries to a besieged area of the city of Homs, and allow a few hundred women, children and elderly to leave. This deal was pending for weeks, but was announced only now to take the heat off Putin at Sochi. Meanwhile, as a Dutch priest trapped in Homs related, via Skype, to London’s Daily Telegraph, residents were being driven mad with starvation, feeling “abandoned” by the world. Already the Homs deal looks like a government trap aimed at retaking the city. Evacuated civilians may disappear into deadly Syrian prisons. They are being pressured to provide the names of all men left behind, who will then become targets. Once the evacuees are gone, Syrian forces will likely starve and bomb the rest. Moreover, the plight of the 2,500 Syrians trapped in Homs barely conveys the horrors that Syrians are enduring, in large part due to government tactics. Nine million Syrians, approaching half the prewar population, have fled abroad or are internally displaced. Regime planes rain barrel bombs filled with shrapnel onto civilian housing. More than 242,000 Syrians live under siege, and 3 million more live in “hard to reach” areas, rarely able to access humanitarian aid deliveries, largely due to blockage by the regime. Back in October, the U.N. Security Council unanimously called for all Syrian sides to facilitate humanitarian aid, but Russia refused to permit a binding resolution.

The impact of that statement has been almost nil. Nor did the first round of Syrian peace talks in Geneva — widely viewed as a failure — produce any movement on humanitarian issues. The second round began Monday, with dismally low expectations. U.S. officials still cling to the dim hope that they can persuade Putin to lean on Assad, at least on humanitarian issues. But if the spotlight of Sochi can’t be used to move Putin, it’s hard to see what will. So it is essential that the administration throw its full weight behind a strong and binding U.N. resolution penalizing any side that blocks humanitarian aid to Syrian civilians — and press for its introduction this week. The resolution should not be watered down further to satisfy the Russians. It should contain a paragraph referencing in full detail the tragedy of the Leningrad siege and comparing the Nazis’ use of starvation tactics to the similar behavior of Assad. If Moscow vetoes this resolution, the onus will be on Putin. A Russian veto might convince the White House that it needs to revisit its Syria strategy, and add more muscle, if it wants Putin to take the Geneva talks seriously. If the memory of his mother’s suffering doesn’t move Putin, President Obama should finally recognize the need to play hardball. — Trudy Rubin is a columnist and editorial board member for the Philadelphia Inquirer.

Sometimes a “success” in my work can be defined as helping a distressed couple end their relationship by acknowledging that both partners had a role in making the marriage untenable.

Go to the store and there are tables set up where we are supposed to buy from or donate to. At the registers they now ask, “Do you want to donate your change to so and so?” NO, stop, it is annoying and I will not give to these any longer. Too hard to determine who is legitimate. So many scams out there. Stop sending your kids to hit me up as I walk into a store. Russell Fryberger, Lawrence

Grace period given for health care law Washington — Angling to avoid political peril, the Obama administration Monday granted employers another delay in a heavily criticized requirement that medium-to-larger firms cover their workers or face fines. In one of several concessions in a complex Treasury Department regulation of more than 200 pages, the administration said companies with 50 to 99 employees will have an additional year to comply with the coverage requirement, until January 1, 2016. For businesses with 100 or more employees the requirement will still take effect in 2015. But other newly announced provisions, affecting technical issues such as the calculation of working hours, may help some of those firms. Most small businesses have fewer than 50 workers and are exempt from the mandate. However, employer groups were also uneasy with a requirement that defines a full-time worker as someone averaging 30 hours a week.

The recent wrong airport landings by a Southwest Airlines Boeing 737 in Missouri and an Atlas Air Boeing 747 freighter in Kansas have heightened safety concerns. The Southwest pilots stopped just short of a ravine at the end of the short runway in Hollister, Mo., when they meant to land on a runway twice as long at nearby Branson. Of the 35 documented wrong landings, at least 23 occurred at airports with shorter runways. FAA officials emphasized that cases of wrong airport landings are rare. There are nearly 29,000 commercial aircraft flights daily in the U.S., but only eight wrong airport landings by U.S. carriers in the last decade, according to AP’s tally. None has resulted in death or injury.

Washington — At a time when a cellphone can guide you to your driveway, commercial pilots attempt to land at the wrong airport more often than most passengers realize or government officials admit, according to an Associated Press search of government safety data and news reports since the early 1990s. On at least 150 flights, including a Southwest Airlines jet last month in Missouri and a jumbo cargo plane last fall in Kansas, U.S. commercial passenger and cargo planes have either landed at the wrong airport or started to land and realized their mistake in time. In nearly all the incidents, the pilots were

cleared by controllers to fly based on what they could see rather than relying on automation. Many incidents occur at night, with pilots reporting they were attracted by the runway lights of the first airport they saw during descent. Some pilots said they disregarded navigation equipment that showed their planes slightly off course because the information didn’t match what they were seeing out their windows — a runway straight ahead. Using NASA’s Aviation Safety Reporting System, along with news accounts and reports sent to other federal agencies, the AP tallied 35 landings and 115 approaches or aborted landing attempts at wrong airports by commercial passenger and cargo planes in more than two decades.

Manhattan — Nobody confused Bramlage Coliseum for “Allen Fieldhouse West” on Monday night. Kansas University’s basketball team, which entered 23-2 in the home of the Kansas State Wildcats, fell to KSU, 85-82, in overtime — a somewhat surprising result since the Jayhawks pounded the Cats by 26 points earlier this year in Lawrence.

Coordinator: KU football offense work in progress By Matt Tait mtait@ljworld.com

NEW KANSAS UNIVERSITY FOOTBALL OFFENSIVE COORDINATOR JOHN REAGAN meets the media at a news conference Monday.

New Kansas University offensive coordinator John Reagan has a plan for the KU football offense. What it is exactly and how it will function this fall remains a work in progress. But during his first meeting with the media on Monday, the former Kansas assistant who returned to Lawrence after a four-year stint at Rice offered up a few hints about which aspects of offensive football would be most important to him and the Jayhawks.

“You have to be able to run the football,” Reagan said. “I think if you’re a much more talented team than everybody else you play, you can wing it all over the field. I don’t think that fits everybody. I don’t think that fits necessarily the mold that we have.” So the emphasis at Kansas will be on setting the tone with the run, taking care of the football at all times and putting the Jayhawks’ playmakers in the best possible position to make plays from the first quarter to the fourth. Without naming names,

Reagan quickly analyzed the offensive pieces he inherited by talking about what he liked. “We’ve got play-makers here,” he said. “That’s one thing I’m very excited about. There’s some skill talent that will be fun to work with and fun to let them show their talents.” Reagan said he was thrilled to have multiple options at quarterback, which figures to be a three-man race between 2013 starters Montell Cozart and Jake Heaps and UCLA transfer T.J. Millweard.

“What I’m anxious to see is how those guys perform this spring,” Reagan said, “and to see who gives the team — not the offense, the team — the best chance to win.” As far as the guys up front, who will protect KU’s quarterbacks and pave the way for those skill guys to get going, Reagan believes there are enough players in place to make pleasant his other duty as offensive-line coach. “There’s no question that Please see FOOTBALL, page 3B

Columbia, Mo. (ap) — Michael Sam was just another recruit when he left his small Texas hometown and arrived in Missouri. Playing for the Tigers, he turned into a private loquacious leader ready to make a trailblazing announcement. The defensive star wants to become the first openly gay NFL player. “I told him: This is going to be mammoth,” coach Gary Pinkel said Monday, a day after Sam came out to the world. “I don’t have a word, OK, for how big this is going to be.” It’s a bigger deal for the older generation. Sam’s teammates and acquaintances easily made the adjustment, plus he proved himself on the field. “He’s a leader,” former 49ers great running back Roger Craig said. “I would definitely welcome him on my team. I’d play with him any day. I like people who stand up for themselves.”

Royals, Holland still split

Mike Yoder/Journal-World Photo

KANSAS UNIVERSITY OFFENSIVE COORDINATOR JOHN REAGAN SPEAKS to the media at an introductory news conference Monday afternoon at KU. Reagan, most recently the O.C. at Rice, worked as offensive-line coach and run-game coordinator under former KU football coach Mark Mangino.

the ability’s there,” he said. “I gotta do the best I can to put ’em in the right position, both tackles, guards, centers, and with play schemes and protections.” With his return to Kansas with a new title representing an exciting next step in his coaching career, Reagan said one of the best parts about his second stint in Lawrence is that it provides the opportunity to be closer to his 9-year-old son and 11-year-old daughter, who live in Lawrence. “It was torture not being in the same town with them,” he said. “So, yeah, I could envision myself coming back. I had no idea how it would happen.” Now that it has, and with the busiest recruiting days behind him, Reagan said he was “excited” about more closely evaluating the talent he has and putting together an

offense designed to bring back the production that Reagan was a part of the first time he wore crimson and blue. “During that time here, I felt like we did some things that were pretty special,” said Reagan, who helped coach KU’s offensive line and running game to three bowl appearances during five seasons. “You’d like to say you’re going into spring ball with an idea of exactly how it’ll turn out. If I said that, I’d be lying. Because I don’t know that I have a full picture right now.”

Weis alters staff duties Early Monday, KU head coach Charlie Weis released the details of staff changes that will alter the duties of Weis, running-backs coach Reggie Mitchell and wide-receivers coach/recruiting coordinator Rob Ianello. “I have decided to adjust our staff,” Weis said in a press release. “Reggie Mitchell will return to a position he is very familiar with as our recruiting

coordinator. Rob Ianello will move to an off-field position as director of research, spending most of his time on recruiting. Coach Reagan and I discussed several alternatives and have decided to have me handle the wide receiver position at this time.” Mitchell served as the recruiting coordinator at Kansas for two years under Turner Gill and also held the title at Michigan State from 2000-04 and Illinois prior to joining Gill’s staff. Weis, who has handled every offensive position during his career, worked closely with KU’s wide receivers at the end of the 2013 season in an attempt to pull better production out of a position that has struggled with drops, getting open and making plays since his arrival. Asked if having the head coach as a position coach within his offense would make him uncomfortable, Reagan didn’t blink. “No. Not at all,” he said. “I don’t have any concern about it whatsoever.”

Kansas City, Mo. (ap) — Royals pitchers and catchers report to Arizona for the start of spring training on Friday, and that presumably means All-Star closer Greg Holland will be there. Of course, there’s a little business that still needs to be finished. Holland is eligible for arbitration and the two sides have yet to reach an agreement. He asked for $5.2 million after Holland going 2-1 with a 1.21 ERA and 47 saves, while the Royals offered $4.1 million. Either way, it’s a big bump from the $539,000 he made last season. The Royals would not disclose when his ar-

bitration hearing will take place. Hearings run through Feb. 21. “Every negotiation is different,” said general manager Dayton Moore, who has never gone to arbitration with a player since joining the Royals in 2006. “It’s a reflection of a player, what they’ve accomplished at that stage of their career, what kind of leverage they have.” The last Royals player to go to arbitration was outfielder Emil Brown, who won his case in 2006, before Moore was hired. In 2005, pitcher Jeremy Affeldt lost his case with Kansas City. “We don’t mind going to a hearing. We haven’t experienced that since we’ve been here together, but it’s not by design,” Moore said. “Getting a deal done prior to a hearing is going to be more challenging for us going

forward as long as we have players excelling and doing well.” The Royals had little trouble reaching deals with their other arbitration-eligible players: outfielder Justin Maxwell, first baseman Eric Hosmer, catcher Brett Hayes and relief pitchers Tim Collins, Luke Hochevar and Aaron Crow. They also agreed to a deal with Emilio Bonifacio, who was designated for assignment when the club re-signed veteran pitcher Bruce Chen. The club requested unconditional release waivers on Bonifacio on Monday. Moore has already signed several of what he considers the cornerstones of the Royals’ future to long-term deals. Holland said he’d be open to such a contract, but he’d rather stay out of the negotiations.

K-STATE 85, KANSAS 82, OT

Wildcats past, present relish win By Matt Tait mtait@ljworld.com

Manhattan — The last time former Kansas State Wildcat Jordan Henriquez felt this much joy inside Bramlage Coliseum was Valentine’s Day 2011, when his KSU team knocked off Kansas University, 84-68, for the lone victory of his career against the Jayhawks. Monday night was not quite as sweet as that one for Henriquez, a 2013 KSU graduate who sat behind the Wildcats’ bench and watched his former

team scrap and claw its way to an 85-82 overtime victory over KU, but it was close. “It’s a great feeling seeing these young guys go out there and tough it out to get this win,” said Henriquez, who blended into the scene around him that included frenzied fans rushing the floor and people, young and old, taking pictures and sending texts on their cell phones. “It’s just incredible.” The 6-foot-10, 250-pound Henriquez, who left KSU as the school’s all-time blocks

leader (210), is one of the most emotional players to don K-State purple during the past decade. So it stung him as much as anybody to go through his final two seasons in Manhattan without a win over Kansas. Asked if what he witnessed Monday night at all made up for coming up short during his final two seasons, the big guy let out an even bigger smile and nodded his head without hesitation. “It does,” he said. “It’s always been about family here at K-State, from

the minute I stepped foot on campus even to now when I come back. It’s always a great feeling to come back home, and this just made it even better.” Henriquez, who now plays for the Rio Grande Valley Vipers in the NBA’s D-League, said he felt the best for the older guys on the K-State roster who won’t have to end their careers with the same sinking feeling he did. “This team has a lot of young guys, and they’re going to make mistakes,” he said. “But they stayed together and found a way

to finish it out tonight. I give credit to the seniors who were able to finish their careers off right by getting this one at home. It’s huge for them to know they split one-andone with Kansas.” As for the game itself, which K-State controlled most of the way thanks largely to a ton of timely layups and a bench that outscored a deeper KU squad, 30-26, KSU coach Bruce Weber was more than a little disappointed that his team allowed Monday’s game to get to overtime. “We just made some

really bad decisions down the stretch,” Weber said. “But you gotta give Kansas credit. They didn’t quit, and they just kept coming at us.” Weber’s message to his team before the final five minutes was simple. “Between the overtime and regulation, I just said, ‘Guys, look at me, you guys have worked too hard to let this thing slip,’” Weber said. “Before the game, we talked about character and letting that be the deciding factor, and we played with a lot of character.”

versus KSU against 22 wins. “It was an entertaining game, a good college game. I just wish we competed a little harder on defense,” Self added. He thought the Jayhawks were in good shape entering overtime after storming back from a nine-point deficit with under two minutes to play. “We played catch-up in overtime. We didn’t play well in overtime,” said Self, whose Jayhawks took the lead, 71-69, on a Tarik Black layup but trailed, 75-73, following a three-pointer by Will Spradling and bucket and foul shot by Marcus Foster. KU never regained the lead. “Give them credit,” Self added. “That can be deflating the way we came back against them, but they responded well in overtime. They had guys step up and make some plays.” The Jayhawks trailed, 68-59, with just 1:53 left, but put on a furious rally that managed to tie the game and force overtime, 69-all. Andrew Wiggins, who missed a three-pointer that could have tied the game with 42.7 left — in fact it was an airball — put in a stickback rebound bucket of his own miss at 6.9 seconds to tie the score at 69. KSU was unable to get off a shot

A hero in forcing OT was Brannen Greene, who first put in a rebound of a miss to cut the gap to 68-63, then stole the ball and scored again to cut the gap to 68-65 with a workable 1:19 left. “I thought Brannen did some good things,” Self said. “We shot 3-for-17 (from three) and missed 11 free throws. We’ve got to shoot better than that. “Brannen did make some plays late,” he added after Greene’s final line read 10 points and five boards with three steals in 15 minutes. The Wildcats were led

by Marcus Foster, who had 20 points (4-for-5 on threes) and two assists in 36 minutes. Spradling, who went 2-2 at home versus KU in his career, had 15 points. He hit three of five threes on a night KSU hit eight of 15. Perry Ellis led the Jayhawks with 19 points and 11 boards. Wiggins had 16 points and five boards, while Naadir Tharpe had 13 points. Black had eight points and seven boards on a night he sprained the same right ankle he hurt earlier in the year. “I’m good, though,” Black said after the game. “Somebody fell on it

again. You saw I was able to go back out there. I’m fine.” Joel Embiid had six points and six boards in 18 minutes. Self said the freshman big man is basically “beat up” and needs some time off. Self said he didn’t know if that meant Embiid would miss any games. “I don’t know. We’re going to re-evaluate and see if he needs a little rest and a little time off. I don’t know how much time,” Self said, indicating Embiid’s back has been bothering him as well as his knee. “There’s nothing structurally there, but he’s beat up. His body ...

it’s taken a toll the last two weeks.” The Jayhawks fell to 18-6 overall and 9-2 in the Big 12; K-State is 17-7, 7-4. “We just had a lot of defensive lapses,” Tharpe said. “I felt there was a time we’d get the lead and keep it. They didn’t stop. They (Wildcats) were relentless and played the whole game. We didn’t compete at the end. “They had secondchance rebounds at will. We didn’t get any stops. They played harder than us at times.” Noted Ellis: “We felt good and energized going into overtime. We just couldn’t get stops at

KANSAS UNIVERSITY FORWARD TARIK BLACK FIGHTS FOR A REBOUND with Kansas State defenders Marcus Foster, right, Thomas Gipson, center, and Nino Williams (11) during the second half of KU’s 85-82 overtime loss on Monday in Manhattan.

NOTEBOOK

Self worried about player-fan interaction By Gary Bedore gbedore@ljworld.com

Manhattan — Bill Self doesn’t want Kansas University’s basketball players interacting with opposing fans during games. “We don’t talk about the seating arrangement or how close fans are (to the court), but the whole thing is, you don’t communicate with fans. It’s water off your back, and there’s no communication between fans and players,” Self, KU’s 11th-year coach, said, explaining his longstanding policy in the wake of the Marcus Smart incident. Smart on Sunday was suspended three games for pushing a Texas Tech fan near the end of Saturday’s loss to the Red Raiders in Lubbock, Texas. “Certainly that was a different situation at least from my view than a lot of situations that occur,” Self added on Monday’s Big 12 coaches telecon-

ference. “The thing that has always concerned me most is the storming of the court (after games). You could have a bumping or something like that, that could escalate into something else. I’ve never addressed my team obviously about what happened Saturday in that respect in which it happened (in OSUTexas Tech game), just in general: Don’t communicate in any way shape or form with anybody that was there just to watch a game.” l

Self on Missouri football player Michael Sam informing the public Sunday that Sam is gay: “The thing I would say more than anything is there’s a reason why Missouri had such a great season in football. Obviously they have good players. I’m not on the inside and know what goes on ... (but) when you have the confidentiality of

your entire team in a way in which they did, that means you know they’ve got each others’ back,” Self said. The Tiger players did not leak the information to the media during the season, instead let Sam speak publicly on his own terms. “That’s one thing to me that stood out. Secondly, without knowing anything about the situation, it takes a lot of courage and guts for someone to stand up for their own convictions and how they feel, and I certainly applaud what was done yesterday. I don’t think anybody should ever have to live or hide behind who they are or how they feel, so I certainly applaud that,” Self said. l

Jeannie to be in Lawrence: KU officials Monday said actress Barbara Eden will attend Saturday’s KU-TCU game in Allen Fieldhouse. Her

husband is a KU graduate. Eden, 82, is best known for the starring role of “Jeannie” in the series “I Dream of Jeannie.” l

Some banners in Bramlage Coliseum on Monday: “Stop Waving Our Wheat,” “I Still Hate Jeff Withey,” “Doom.” l

It means a lot to alums: Former KU player Tommie Smith, who lives in Topeka after growing up in Kewanee, Ill., watches closely when the Jayhawks play the Wildcats. “I was actually contacted by K-State before I was by KU. I still have a little Wildcat thing I throw around the house,” said Smith, a member of KU’s 1974 Final Four team. “We always want to be the state champs. A couple years ago, K-State put out a T-shirt about being Texas state champs. That didn’t go over well. We go to Manhattan ... it’s our intent to win because we

own the building (Bramlage). We go there and do what we have to do. We have a lot of confidence in that building.” l

Respect: Players from Kansas and Kansas State may be rivals, but they are not enemies. Typically, the players serve as counselors at some of the same camps during the spring and summer months. “I’ve worked with a lot of them: Perry (Ellis), Naadir (Tharpe), Frank Mason, Brannen Greene, Tarik Black ... there are a lot of them I worked with,” KSU senior Will Spradling said. “It’s always fun to work with them. We don’t really bother each other. “We get along just fine. Obviously when we get on the court and put jerseys on, it’s a different story. Off the court we get along. We interact a lot.”

KU sophomore forward Perry Ellis had Kansas State on his final list of schools. “I never talked to the coach who is there now, (Bruce) Weber. I talked to Frank a lot,” he said of current South Carolina coach Frank Martin. “They have a good program, good people also, but I just ended up deciding to go to KU.” l

Gipson is talented: KSU’s Thomas Gipson, a 6-foot-7, 265-pound junior from Cedar Hill, Texas, took a 11.7 scoring, 6.5 rebound average into Monday’s game. “Gip’s a big part of our team,” freshman guard Marcus Foster said. “He’s a leader for us. He shows us the right way to go. I told him, ‘You’re going to have a good game Monday’ because he deserves it. “He works hard every l day in practice and pushEllis considered KSU: es us.”

the floor, leaving Andrew Wiggins as the only player with a strong defensive reputation in the lineup. Remarkably, it worked, and in the final 1:53, Kansas won on the scoreboard, 10-1. Naadir Tharpe, Conner Frankamp, Greene and Perry Ellis, all better scorers than defenders, joined Wiggins on the court for the final four minutes of regulation. The bold move paid off because Greene, in a span of six seconds, slammed home a Tharpe miss, stole the ball under the basket and scored, and because Wiggins made such a remarkable play, a left-handed tip of his own miss after he instantly bounced off the floor with a blurry second jump. Self said there might be “three guys in basketball who can make that play, and he’s definitely one of them.” Except for that wild flurry, it was Kansas State’s determined, savvy team that made the most good basketball plays. K-State freshman

KANSAS GUARD ANDREW WIGGINS FLOATS IN FOR AN OVERTIME BUCKET against Kansas State. guard Marcus Foster made such savvy decisions, executed such smooth moves, and played through pain, re-entering the game to a rowdy ovation on his way to a 20-point night. Senior guard Will Spradling was at his very best. KU’s inability to defend the goal, seldom a problem through years of rosters jammed with tall, rugged defenders, spelled doom against the relentless Wildcats. Unless and until Kansas freshman center Joel Embiid returns to form and with a sound knee, protecting the basket

will be an issue. That’s not good for a team that doesn’t always do a great job of stopping penetration from the point. Embiid was limited to 18 of the game’s 45 minutes. “Jo’s beat up,” Self said. “He’s beat up. I’m not going to make excuses for him because if you’re out there, you’ve got to perform. Certainly, he needs some time off. He’ll get some time off.” Self, who kept Jamari Traylor welded to the bench as a disciplinary measure, was quick to point out that “both teams were beat up.”

K-State’s Omari Lawrence winced up and down the court waiting for a whistle while fighting the severe pain of a cramped leg. KU’s Tarik Black twisted his ankle. Kansas State hit KU with its best shot, and a well-behaved, wild crowd spurred its tough team on and stepped in to supply the smelling salts after a nine-point lead vanished in the final 113 seconds of regulation. It was an exhausting battle for both sides, and the team that fought the hardest for the longest won it.

West Virginia 102, No. 11 Iowa St. 77 Morgantown, W.Va. — Remi Dibo scored a career-high 20 points to lead West Virginia to a victory over Iowa State on Monday night, the Cyclones’ most lopsided loss of the season. Juwan Staten added 19 points, and Eron Harris and Terry Henderson each had 16 points for the Mountaineers (15-10, 7-5 Big 12). Iowa State (18-5, 6-5) had five players in double figures, led by Georges Niang’s 17 points. But Melvin Ejim, coming off a Big 12-record 48 points and a career-high 18 rebounds against TCU, was

held to six points on 1-of9 shooting. The Cyclones fell behind by double digits midway through the first half and trailed by as many as 32 points late in the game. West Virginia hit a season-high for points and improved to 2-1 amid a stretch of four straight games against ranked opponents heading into a matchup Saturday at No. 19 Texas. West Virginia shot 54 percent (35-of-65) from the field, including 13-of22 from three-point range. Iowa State’s outside scoring was virtually nonexistent until it was too late. The Cyclones were held to 37 percent shooting (26-of-71) in los-

ing their fourth road conference game. The only drama for West Virginia came when Harris was ejected for a flagrant foul with 4:25 left. IOWA ST.

Dear Annie: A few years ago, my wife went out of town for a conference. A month after she returned, I was on our computer and noticed that she hadn’t logged out of her email. My curiosity got the best of me, and I saw that she had traded emails with an old boyfriend. I then discovered that the two of them had met while she was at the conference. One of her last emails to him said, “I still have feelings for you.” On the advice of a marriage counselor, I was direct with her about it. She claimed nothing happened and that they only met for dinner and said she would never contact him again. She also was angry that I had invaded her privacy. Last year, my wife and I hit a rough patch.

Annie’s Mailbox

Marcy Sugar and Kathy Mitchell

anniesmailbox@comcast.net

I got suspicious of her behavior and checked her cellphone. I saw that she had exchanged multiple texts with this same guy. Again, she claims nothing happened, the texts were innocent and I had no right to snoop. My wife is angry that I don’t trust her, and I’m having trouble dealing with this. Any advice? — Broken Up Dear Broken: We don’t trust your wife, either. She promised

ABC show misses mark with cliches People don’t contract amnesia as often as they used to on TV shows. Nor do they fall into quicksand. But plenty other hackneyed plot devices endure. A curious staple of television production is the very special Film Noir episode, occurring on “Pretty Little Liars” tonight (7 p.m., ABC Family). After medicating herself for insomnia (not amnesia, drat!) Spencer falls into a dreamlike reality right out of 1940s movies, complete with black and white photography, rotary phones, men in hats and non-Starbucks coffee. What is it about film noir that has such a hold on TV-makers? I seem to remember a film noir version of “Boy Meets World” once. Or was that only a dream? There was a film noir version of “Castle” not that long ago. “Smallville” had one, too. Ditto “Moonlighting” and “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.” And I’m not kidding about “Boy Meets World.” That TGIF sitcom did a film noir tribute episode on April 7, 2000. The real question is, who thinks the young audience for “Pretty Little Liars” even knows or appreciates the 1940s film genre? And why haven’t TV producers come up with a more recent and familiar visual style to imitate or parody? How about an episode of ABC Family’s “The Fosters,” or “Ravenswood” or “Twisted” (8 p.m.) shot in the over-the-top style of an early ‘80s MTV video? Now that would be a throwback! And something for the young viewers and their parents to talk about. Tonight’s other highlights O Olympics coverage (7 p.m., NBC) includes: Snowboarding, Figure Skating, Freestyle Skiing and Ski Jumping. O Drinking, hospitalization and other woes abound on the one-hour season finale of “Dads” (7 p.m., Fox). I’m not surprised that this thoroughly unlikeable mess has come to an early end. I’m rather astonished it’s been on for so long. O City residents resist alien attack in the 2011 comedy “Attack the Block” (7 p.m., CW). O Jess’ sister, Abby (Linda Cardellini), descends on “New Girl” (8 p.m., Fox). O Murder in the NBA on “Killer Women” (9 p.m., ABC). O Raylan responds to an attack on Allison on “Justified” (9 p.m., FX).

BIRTHDAYS Actress Tina Louise is 80. Actor Burt Reynolds is 78. Singer Sheryl Crow is 52. Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is 50. Actress Jennifer Aniston is 45. Singer-actress Brandy is 35. Actor Matthew Lawrence is 34. Actor Taylor Lautner is 22.

not to contact this man again and then did so and hid it from you. She locks her phone and has multiple email accounts to which you apparently do not have the passwords. Worse, to deflect blame, she accuses you of snooping. There may not have been a sexual affair, but it definitely sounds like an emotional attachment. Please go back to your counselor and ask your wife to come with you. Dear Annie: I own a small casual restaurant in a small town. People order at the counter and then take their food to a table to eat. In the past couple of years, I’ve noticed more people bringing in food from other establishments and eating at our place. I don’t understand why people think it’s OK to take advantage of an

JACQUELINE BIGAR’S STARS

For Tuesday, Feb. 11: This year you seem more in tune with various elements of your day-to-day life. If you are single, you suddenly might notice someone who has been around you for years. If you are attached, the two of you feel more connected. 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) ++++ Opportunities will pop up from out of the blue, but conflict might surround whatever path you choose.
