A head start on real life

COMMON CORE

Hundreds show up to weigh in on education standards

Teens do the math on adult expenses

By John Milburn Associated Press

Topeka — A Kansas House committee heard testimony Wednesday from an overflow crowd of several hundred on legislation that would bar use of the Common Core standards for reading and math in public schools. Supporters and opponents of the standards filled the House Education Committee LEGISLATURE meeting room and the adjacent corridor for the hearing. Chairwoman Kasha Kelley told the gathering at that start that she appreciated the respect shown by people on both sides of the issue, which was a holdover from the 2013 session.

My two kids — they’re 1 and 2 — are fed well, wearing garage-sale outfits and getting the multichild discount at a daycare center. But I still haven’t paid my medical bills, saved any money, donated to

charity or gone out for any fun. And I think I might have a student loan payment due? The $107 I have left is not going to cut it. Maybe the cute bungalow I bought is out of my league? I want to look nice at my marketing job, but should I be getting my own outfits secondhand, too? Furthermore, why did I have two kids without getting married? Sigh.

Kansas Rep. Mike Peterson, 72, dies after lengthy illness Kansas City, Kan. (ap) — Kansas House officials say Rep. Mike Peterson, one of the Kansas Legislature’s longest-serving members, has died after a lengthy illness at the age of 72. The office of House Minority Leader Paul Davis confirmed Peterson, a Democrat from Kansas City, died early Tuesday at a Kansas City-area hospital. Peterson, an attorney, served in the 32nd House

district from 1979 to 1990 and was re-elected in 2005. He served on the House Federal and State Committee and the Redistricting Committee. After news of his death spread at the Capitol, Davis led the House in a moment of silence. He called Peterson a “great friend and colleague.” House Speaker Ray Merrick, a Stillwell Republican, said funeral services had not been scheduled.

school and getting good grades can help you get the career and lifestyle you want. (For example, with a higher-paying job you could be driving the sporty Acura instead of the 15-year-old station wagon with 121,000 miles on it that 26-year-old me is rocking in this scenario.) “It leads them to that a-ha moment that what they’re doing now in high school affects their future,” said Brooke Miller, Northeast Kansas director for Communities in Schools. “Maybe they can make some modifications now to get where they want to be.” About 175 students from Lawrence High’s Integrated Studies program were scheduled to participate in Reality U this week.

lll I must admit, this grown-up was surprised and impressed when some of the students reminded me of a thing or two about life and money. As a high school senior, I assumed that by 26 (so old!) I’d obviously be married with two kids, living in a nice house and working in journalism — which probably would pay great because it’s kind of glamorous, pretty competitive and typically requires a college degree. My Reality U profile gave me the kids and a $46,343 salary (way more than I was actually making at 26) but also a huge curve ball: no spouse. Not sure what happened to my pretend kids’ dad, but apparently he’s not in the picture and neither is

Now even some House members who voted for the bill are backtracking. But even though House Bill 2453 has been buried, the conflict between gay rights and the religious beliefs of some will rise again as early as next month. Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Jeff King, R-Independence, said his committee will hold hearings to examine laws passed in recent years in Kansas regarding religious liberty and talk with legal experts to see if there are any “holes in those protections.” “We just have to make sure when we dig in our heels to fight for religious liberty that we do so for all Kansans and that we do so in a way that makes sure we don’t discriminate against any Kansans,” King said. It has become an almost annual battle in Kansas spurred by nearly every legal twist and turn on the national and state levels. In 2005, the Legislature put on the ballot a constitutional amendment that recognized only marriage between a man and woman. Kansas voters favored it by 70 percent. In 2012, the Brownback administration pushed for passage of what was called the Kansas Preservation of Religious Freedom Act, which would have prohibited government from substantially burdening a person’s exercise of religion unless the government could prove the action furthered a compelling interest. Specifically, it would have invalidated a Lawrence ordinance that prohibits discrimination based on sexual orientation. While it was approved easily in the House, the measure didn’t gain traction in the Senate. Last year, the legislation re-emerged, but gay rights advocates said the anti-LGBT language was

Single, no kids, making almost $78,000 working in the engineering and math field — Wilson had it made. He’d already paid most of his big expenses, donated $300 to charity and still had $2,500 left for the month. “I’ll probably save it,” said Wilson, a senior. “You’ve always got to get the basics out of the way first.” Instead of one of the tempting bigger houses, thrifty Wilson bought a two-bedroom, two-bath house for just $623 a month. He wasn’t driving the Acura, either, or the fancy new pickup. A used Crown Vic was good enough for him. Another smart shopper was junior Tasheana Dixon. In her 26-year-old pretend life she, too, was a single mom of two making $34,900 a year, which she stretched to cover all her expenses except entertainment, charitable giving and the cellphone bill. She chose to rent a two-bedroom apart-

removed from the bill. The measure was approved by the Legislature and signed into law by Brownback. Supporters of this year’s HB 2453 said it was needed because of recent federal court actions striking down same-sex marriage bans in several states. One case is being appealed to the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals, which covers Kansas. The American Religious Freedom Program has been working with states to pass bills that it said would set up protections for religious beliefs. The American Religious Freedom Program is part of the Ethics and Public Policy Center, which describes itself as “Washington, D.C.’s premier institute dedicated to applying the JudeoChristian moral tradition to critical issues of public policy.” Brian Walsh, executive director of American Religious Freedom Program, said the bill in Kansas, as portrayed by its opponents, did not represent his understanding of the bill. “I don’t know anybody who believes that you should not serve someone because of their sexual orientation,” Walsh said. State Rep. Lance Kinzer, R-Olathe, who has written much of the legislation opposed by gay rights groups over the past several years, insists that the bill would not have allowed discrimination against gays and lesbians. “This has always been the case in the bill and I’d welcome any amendment that states this even more specifically, as arguments to the contrary have confused some regarding the focus of the bill,” he said. But many others dis-

agreed, including conservatives in the Senate and business owners. Thomas Witt, executive director of Equality Kansas, has been advocating on behalf of gays and lesbians for a decade. “This is my 10th year in the Capitol, and I’ve never seen a bill this bad,” Witt said. A supplemental note to the bill written by the Kansas Legislative Research Department stated: “If an individual were employed by a governmental entity or non-religious entity, and that individual declined to provide a lawful service otherwise consistent with that entity’s duties or policies, then the employer providing such service, in directing the performance of such service, would be required to promptly provide another employee to provide the service or otherwise ensure the service was provided, if it could be done without undue hardship to the employer.” The bill also would have required district courts to decide disputes over the law within 60 days with no additional discovery or fact-finding conducted by the court. Witt said such provisions were inappropriate. “Some people in our Statehouse just harbor an intense dislike of gay and lesbian people, and they put that dislike into a bill,” Witt said. But King, the chairman of Judiciary, said a bill can be written to balance religious beliefs and the rights of gays and lesbians. “Kansas has a rich and proud history of protecting religious freedom as well as fighting against discrimination in any form,” he said.

To get there, she wants to keep up her GPA and get a scholarship to attend college. Her own mom works two jobs to provide for Tasheana and her two siblings, which she kept in mind while budgeting her month at Reality U. “It has me actually realizing what my mom is going through,” Tasheana said. “You’ve got to sacrifice a lot for your children.

GOP pushes for changes in local elections By John Hanna Associated Press

Topeka — The Kansas Republican Party is pushing legislators to change the dates of local elections and make them partisan, but a GOP-dominated state Senate committee rejected the second part of that plan Wednesday. The Senate Ethics and Elections Committee debated a bill to hold city, local school board and community college board elections on the same schedule as legislative, congressional and statewide contests. Primaries would be in August of even-numbered years and general elections in November. The committee rewrote parts of the measure extensively and doesn’t expect to take final action on it

until at least next week. Kansas holds nonpartisan local elections in the spring of odd-numbered years, with the general elections in early April. Voter turnout percentages can dip into the single digits, and Republican Party officials point out that having local elections coincide with state, congressional and presidential ones is certain to boost turnout. “The intent of trying to move these elections is really to drive voter turnout,” state GOP Chairman Kelly Arnold said after the committee’s meeting. “Part of it is taking the elections and moving them to where the voters are.” But the committee removed language making local elections partisan. Sen. Steve Fitzgerald, a Leaven-

worth Republican whose district includes Fort Leavenworth, noted federal law prevents military personnel and federal workers from running for partisan office. “A number of them have served in city commissions or on school boards, and this would deprive us of some very good people,” said Fitzgerald, a retired Army lieutenant colonel. Arnold and other Republican Party officials argued that making the elections partisan would help voters pick candidates by at least letting party affiliation act as a rough guide to their philosophies in lowkey races in which voters sometimes don’t see much campaign advertising. Arnold said parties also can help candidates disseminate their messages.

But some critics of the legislation see a push for partisan elections as an attempt by conservatives to use their clout within the GOP, the dominant political party in most of the state, to assert more control over cities and school districts. And the rewritten measure is still drawing opposition from local officials, who acknowledge the low turnout in their elections but contend down-ballot races will get lost amid other contests in even-numbered years. “They’re trying to change things that don’t need to be changed,” said Mike Taylor, a lobbyist for the Unified Government of Kansas City, Kan., and Wyandotte County.

County OKs transparency plan Retire By Peter Hancock phancock@ljworld.com

Some outside agencies that receive county funding will undergo more reporting and monitoring under a measure that Douglas County commissioners approved Wednesday. Commissioners voted 3-0 to approve a modified version of a plan that Commissioner Mike Gaughan introduced two weeks ago. That would have required outside groups such as the Douglas County Legal Aid Society, the Humane Society and others to enter agreements with the county detailing how the public funds would be used, and to provide detailed accounting for those funds at the end of each budget year. But Commissioner Jim Flory argued that was too broad, and he suggested making a distinction between agencies that get funding for specific proj-

After graduating with an economics degree from the University of Southern California in 2005, Seddiqui spent three years trying to find a job, with little success. He said he failed more than 40 interviews during that time, an effort that later earned him the title of “Most Rejected Person in the World” from USA Today. “When I graduated from college, I thought I was just going to get this nice, entry-level job that school promised me,” Seddiqui

Schmidt’s office told legislators that Kansas consumers filed 161 complaints about unwanted cellphone solicitations last year. “With the changes in technology, state policy has

ects and those for whom the county simply provides general operating assistance. The one outside program that drew the most discussion was the Lawrence Chamber of Commerce, which is receiving $218,000 this year from Douglas County, as well as an identical amount from the city of Lawrence. Lawrence resident Dan Dannenberg told commissioners he had grown frustrated trying to find out how the Chamber spends the money it receives, especially when the Chamber appears before the Lawrence City Commission to argue for tax abatements and other kinds of economic development incentives for businesses. But county administrator Craig Weinaug said none of the money provided by either the city or county goes for the Chamber’s advocacy efforts. In fact, Weinaug said, the

money doesn’t actually go to the Chamber at all. Weinaug said those funds actually go to an “economic development partnership” which is housed in the Chamber’s offices but is jointly run by the city, county and the Chamber. Those funds are used mainly to pay the salaries of staff who are directly involved in marketing the community to prospective businesses. In other business, the commission approved a conditional use permit for Tamara FairbanksIshmael to operate a business, Good Earth Gatherings, on property she owns at 858 East 1500 Road, which is zoned for residential and agricultural use. The business includes offering arts and crafts classes a few times a week and an ancillary retail operation selling supplies and materials for those projects.

Several legislators who voiced support for Rubin’s bill said they didn’t have confidence that the Legislature would continue its part of the reforms by increasing contributions in KPERS. Rubin’s bill would enroll state hires after Jan. 1, 2016 in a 401(k)-style plan. Current employees could switch to the plan if they wanted. Rebecca Procter, chairwoman of Keeping the Promise Campaign, said 401(k)-type plans for public employees in Nebraska and West Virginia found that workers retired with much lower benefits. She said that would affect the entire state because retirees would be spending less in their home communities. “We have a fix that was passed in 2012. Stay the course,” she said.

said. “And life threw me a curve ball, then curve ball after curve ball. I had to resourcefully find ways to get to another path.” So, in August 2008, Seddiqui packed up his Jeep, took out a $5,000 line of credit and headed east from California. Using a combination of Google searches and cold calling, Seddiqui secured a job in every state, relying on local families for lodging. Along the way, he helped deliver a foal at a horse farm in Kentucky, confiscated 40 pounds of marijuana as a border patrol agent in Arizona and even worked as a meat packer in Topeka. Seddiqui’s adventures, while often exciting, were

marked with a number of challenges. At one point in his speech, he admitted that he went into each job not knowing if he would be compensated for his work. To survive, he relied on five essential skills— adaptability, networking, endurance, risk-taking and perseverance. “Life is what you want to make it. It’s really up to you,” Seddiqui said. “I learned that by being a long distance runner. I remember being on that starting line, and I had all this advice from coaches and strategies and the support system from my family and my friends and my teammates, but when that gun went off, I realized that they can’t run

with me, they can’t run for me. It was really up to me.” Fifty weeks and 28,336 miles later, Seddiqui returned to California with 48 out of 50 potential paychecks, and even a few fulltime job offers. Now married and living in Denver, Seddiqui is still traveling across the country, this time as a speaker. Inspired by his own experience, he is developing a semester program for college students to explore their career interests and the many different cultures of America. “Embrace fear of failure and rejection,” he told his audience. “Then, you can make great discoveries.”

not kept pace,” said Senate Utilities Committee Chairman Pat Apple, a Louisburg Republican. Under the no-call law, a telephone solicitor commits an “unconscionable act” to call a residential number that’s on the no-call list. The attorney general’s office, county prosecutors and consumers can sue them, with penalties of up to $10,000 for each violation. The bill faced no opposition when Apple’s committee considered it, but during Wednesday’s debate, Sen.

Dennis Pyle, a Hiawatha Republican, was skeptical of sending Kansas residents to the federal no-call list. That’s the standard practice across the nation, and the Kansas attorney general’s website links to the FTC’s no-call site, which includes a link to its list or a telephone number to call. But Pyle questioned whether the federal list is accessible to people without a computer or whether the few people who still use rotarydial phones can navigate it. “I guess, given all the de-

bate currently that’s out there about states versus federal government, etcetera, etcetera, we’re pushing our consumers off to the Federal Trade Commission,” Pyle said. “I’d still like to make sure that our consumers can easily access and get their numbers on the no-call list.”

Baldwin City stands to lose $100K if standards are killed

CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1A

“It isn’t lost on anybody that there isn’t anyone who doesn’t want rigorous, thought-provoking standards for our children,” said Kelley, an Arkansas City Republican. Last year, a measure to repeal Common Core failed to get out of the committee, though a bill was approved by the Senate that later died in the House. Several states have backed away from the standards or delayed their implementation. The Kansas measure seeks to reverse a 2010 state Board of Education decision to adopt the standards for math and reading, as well as a set of science standards. It would also create an advisory group to develop new guidelines to replace the existing standards. Witnesses had 90 seconds each to address the committee, which asked no questions and took no action on the bill. Critics of the standards used language such as communist, Marxist and socialist to describe the standards and the manner in which they were developed and adopted. “This loss of local control is imminent if we don’t do something,” said former state Rep. Owen Donohoe of Shawnee. Other opponents of the standards complained that they resulted in curriculum that was difficult for students and parents to understand, resulting in poorer classroom performance. Supporters, including parents, educators and the general public, told the committee that they were stringent and that teachers welcomed the changes because it allowed them to teach stu-

Baldwin City School Superintendent Paul Dorathy said Wednesday he’s concerned that a $100,000 district investment could be lost if the bill to kill Common Core standards passes. Dorathy said the district has spent a good deal of time and money preparing for Common Core and has tested with pilot questions from its reading and math standards the past two years. Preparations included committee meetings scheduled to realign curriculum to meet those of Common Core, training teachers to understand the “how-to” of teaching to Common Core standards and the purchase of new textbooks and classroom material. “I would feel very safe in saying with training hours and material bought that we are well over $100,000 in preparation for Common Core standards,” Dorathy said. A successful legisla-

tive move to kill Common Core would come with another price tag, Dorathy said. The district purchased textbooks for Common Core subjects, which were written to integrate with Common Core to the point they all say so on their covers. “If they say we can’t use those, we’ll have to get new books for all those subjects,” the superintendent said. Should Dove’s bill become law, the district might have to revert to standards in place before the adoption of Common Core. The district no longer has the textbooks for that curriculum and would have to realign its curriculum with the old standards. “That’s very wasteful,” Dorathy said. “Statewide, millions of dollars have been spent preparing for Common Core. The Legislature talks about being wasteful, but this proposal is very wasteful.”

possibilities for dynamic classroom experiences.” Kansas was part of a multi-state consortium that developed the Common Core standards and the so-called Next Generation Science Standards to create common material that students should master. States were able to add content to the standards, which Kansas did and rebranded as the state’s College and Career Ready Standards. A contract has been made with the University of Kansas to write the assessments that students will take in the coming years to determine proficiency on the standards.

Since 1989, when the scholarships were first awarded, 55 KU students have won the scholarships. Sophomore and juniors are eligible and chosen based on their research experience, academic records and potential for careers in scientific and engineering fields. Winners for the 2014 Goldwater scholarships will be announced in March. KU’s nominees this year: Ashley Farris, from Wichita, a junior in biochemistry; Alex Kong, from Lawrence, a junior in pharmacy;

Ryan Limbocker, from Overland Park, a junior in chemistry; Kayla Sale, from Olathe, a junior in biology and mathematics.

know what you’re thinking. It’s warm, sunny and within the 50s this week. But according to the groundhog himself, and anyone who’s lived here for awhile, Kansas has got a bit of winter left up its sleeves. For when temperatures inevitably dip back below freezing and you’re looking for ways to warm up, make the rounds in town for a hot glass (or five) of these concoctions.

Volcano at Ramen Bowls “An eruption big enough for two” reads the menu. Probably even three, as this is one of Ramen Bowls’ special fish bowls, equipped with a flaming shot of 151-proof rum in the middle of an ice bath of more rum, amaretto, grape fruit juice and orange juice. Blow out the flame and take the shot straight up, or drop it into the cold, citrusy bath and share the potent contents. It’s not lacking in warmth in any kind of way; you will walk out toasty, no doubt. The hard stuff: Captain Morgan, Bacardi Superior, flaming shot of 151-proof Bacardi rum Where it’s served: Ramen Bowls, 125 E. 10th St. What it costs: $12 Also worth trying: Give their winter spice sake a shot. They combine house Gekkeikan, Merlot, cherry brandy, apples, oranges, brown sugar, cinnamon and honey. It tastes like a small liquid shot of warm apple pie. Please see DRINKS, page 8A

Thukpa at Zen Zero, 811 Massachusetts St.

THUKPA In the Himalayan mountains, where most homes don’t have central heat, residents eat a lot of thukpa to take off winter’s chill, said Zen Zero owner and Nepal native Subarna Bhattachan. This belly- and soul-warming Nepalese/Tibetan soup features oodles of egg noodles, stewed cabbage and green beans in a curry broth with a touch of heat. Tomato chutney, cilantro and scallions on top add a jolt of freshness. “It’s got broth, it’s got spice, you can add dumplings or meat,” Bhattachan said. “In the winter when the sun goes down, and it’s really bitter cold ... that’s the perfect kind of weather for it.” There’s still time to fill up on thukpa before spring. Don’t kid yourself — we may be on a brief winter break this week, but the real February will be back shortly. Where to get it: Zen Zero, 811 Massachusetts St.

What you’ll pay: $7.29. Add chicken or dumplings for $1.99. Try it with: To keep the regional theme going, an appetizer of momos, or Himalayan style dumplings. Choose from pork or vegetarian, steamed or fried. (Go ahead, order them in the soup, too. It’s hard to get too many of these things.) Also on the menu: Mostly Thai soups, salads, curries and noodle dishes, with a smattering of choices inspired from Nepalese, Tibetan, Japanese, Vietnamese and Chinese cuisine. Zen Zero is known for its selection of vegetarian dishes. — Off The Beaten Plate highlights some of the more exotic, oddly named or inventively concocted dishes from local menus.

With a list of eight “corrected” coffee drinks at your disposal, you could dedicate an entire night to hot cocktails without leaving this cozy bar, paying special tribute to the Soft Picasso. Getting some chai with your liquor, it packs a bit of punch; don’t let the milky frothiness fool you. Chocolate is poured around the top of the glass before the warm chai fills the cup, making for a pretty (as in beautiful) delicious drink. The hard stuff: Bärenjäger honey liqueur, Frangelico, chocolate bitters Where it’s served: Bourgeois Pig, 6 E. Ninth St What it costs: $9 Also worth trying: If you’re more into cider than anything else, try the spiked cider or ruest,the biggest difference being the amount of alcohol (the latter an amped version of the former).

Kahlua Latte at Milton’s Much tamer than the other drinks on this list, this one incorporates cold-press espresso, milk, cream and two shots of Kahlua. It’s really a drink for anytime of day, one Milton’s bartender says. But keep in mind, just because it is mild doesn’t mean there isn’t alcohol that will sneak up on you eventually. Topped with whipped cream and shaved chocolate, Milton’s delivers another aesthetically pleasing, creamy specialty coffee, this time with a little kick. The hard stuff: Kahlua Where it’s served: Milton’s, 901 New Hampshire St. What it costs: $4 Also worth trying: Other warm drinks include the traditional Irish coffee or Fireball hot chocolate (with Fireball Whiskey).

Unlike the traditional hot toddy, the honey is substituted for honey liqueur, the bartender says. You know, for a little extra something.

Right priority Legislators and KU officials have set the right priority by putting funding for a new medical school building ahead of support for new high-class apartments to attract student-athletes.

K

ansas University officials made a wise decision to drop a bonding request for an apartment building near Allen Fieldhouse and focus their efforts on gaining approval for a new health education building at the KU Medical Center. They didn’t exactly have to read the tea leaves to make their choice. Legislators had sent a pretty clear message about the prospects for approval of the two proposals. Last week, The House Education Budget Committee rejected KU’s request for $17.5 million in bonding authority to build a high-class 66-unit apartment building just south of the fieldhouse. About half of the units would be occupied by nonathletes, but a key impetus for the project was to provide upgraded housing for KU student-athletes. The apartments, KU officials argued, were vital to the university’s athletic recruiting efforts. Maybe so, but in the big scheme of things, the KUMC building project that gained support from another committee on the same day will have a far greater impact on KU’s academic mission as well as a tangible payback for the state as a whole. The new $75 million medical education building is needed to support updated training for students in the School of Medicine. Without the building, KU officials said, the school’s accreditation might be in danger and the school wouldn’t be able to increase the size of its medical school classes to help address a doctor shortage, especially in the rural parts of the state. KU already has authority to issue bonds for $35 million for the project, but it is asking the Legislature to help pay off $15 million of that debt with an annual allocation of $1.4 million starting next fiscal year. It also is seeking the return of $25 million in Social Security and Medicare contributions that KUMC paid on behalf of its interns. Those contributions later were found to be unnecessary and were refunded to the state, and KU officials would like to apply that money to the cost of the new building. The rest of the building’s costs will be paid out of private donations and other university funds. Although Gov. Brownback didn’t include any funding for the KUMC building in his budget recommendations, members of the Joint Committee on State Building Construction were more supportive of the plan and recommended approval of $1.4 million for next year. KU officials say they will explore other options to complete the apartment complex, but they were smart to drop that issue with the Legislature and concentrate on the positive response they have gotten on the medical school building. Both KU officials and legislators have their priorities straight on which of these projects is more deserving of broad state support.

Washington — Western and Arab intelligence services that support Syria’s struggling opposition gathered for a two-day strategy meeting in Washington last week that appears to signal a stronger effort to back the rebels. The spymasters’ conclave featured Prince Mohammed bin Nayef, Saudi Arabia’s minister of the interior, who will now supervise the kingdom’s leading role in the covert-action program. He replaces Prince Bandar bin Sultan, the Saudi intelligence chief, who has been suffering from a back ailment and whose leadership of the program was seen as uneven.    Susan Rice, the U.S. national security adviser, met with Prince Mohammed to discuss strategy. But sources caution that President Obama is still

Prince Mohammed’s new oversight role reflects the increasing concern in Saudi Arabia and other neighboring countries about al-Qaida’s growing power within the Syrian opposition.” wary of any major escalation in Syria that might involve U.S. forces directly. The U.S. opposes no-fly zones, for example, although the administration’s call for secure corridors to provide humanitarian assistance may lead it to embrace de facto safe zones if the U.N. can’t agree on a formal plan. Prince Mohammed’s new oversight role reflects the increasing concern in Saudi Arabia and other neighboring countries about al-Qaida’s growing power within the Syrian opposition. The Washington gathering was also attended by spy chiefs from Turkey, Qatar, Jordan and other key regional powers that have been supporting the rebels. Sources said these countries agreed to coordinate their aid so that it goes directly to moderate fighters rather than leeching away to extremists of the al-Nusra Front, an al-Qaida affiliate, and the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS). It’s too early to tell whether this makeover is cosmetic or signifies real

changes on the battlefield. But it’s an attempt to bolster the chronically weak moderate opposition, which lost ground over the past year to both President Bashar al-Assad’s forces and the jihadist fighters close to al-Qaida. Coordination of assistance among the different donors will be especially important. In the past, aid flows have been disrupted by political infighting between Turkey and Qatar, on the one hand, and Saudi Arabia and Jordan, on the other. The situation has been especially chaotic in northern Syria, south of the Turkish border, where the alQaida affiliates have taken advantage of the confusion. The intelligence chiefs discussed whether to supply more advanced weapons to the rebels, such as shoulder-fired anti-aircraft missiles. The Saudis have stockpiles of such weapons and are ready to ship them, but they want support from the Obama administration, which remains reluctant to give a formal OK. The CIA has organized the training effort. Currently, the camps, mostly in Jordan, can handle about 250 fighters a month, and well over 1,000 fighters have come through this program. Though the camps are said to be supervised by CIA paramilitary operatives, the effort involves representatives of the other intelligence services. Arab countries have urged the U.S. to double this training capacity.  The Syrian rebels have reshuffled their command structure, which should fit better with the new intelligence alliance. Gen. Salim Idriss has

been forced out as head of the Free Syrian Army’s supreme military command. Idriss was backed by U.S. officials because he was an articulate proponent for preserving the Syrian army and state structure, but he had limited support among fighters. The new commander is Brig. Gen. Abdul-Illah al-Bashir, who defected from the Syrian army last year and is based in Quneitra, on Syria’s southern border. He lost a son in fighting against Assad’s forces, which gives him credibility among rebels. His deputy will be Col. Haitham Afiseh from Idlib province in the north. U.S. observers credit Afiseh for leading attacks that routed ISIS jihadists from his home town. It’s hoped that Bashir in the south and Afiseh in the north can better coordinate the two fronts.  These new commanders are said to be working closely with the Syrian Revolutionaries Front, a moderate group headed by Jamal Maarouf. He met last week inside Syria with Ahmad al-Jarba, the Saudi-backed leader of the Syrian opposition coalition. Arab sources argue that Saudi Arabia’s sponsorship of both the political and military wings of the opposition is another positive sign, after so many months of discord. Underlying these tactical changes is the fact that Saudi Arabia and the U.S. are working together again on Syria policy after a year of increasingly bitter disagreement. The revived U.S.Saudi alliance won’t topple Assad, but it will reduce what had become a dangerous regional feud.   — David Ignatius is a columnist Washington Post Writers Group.

Economy is top US priority By Gene Budig and Alan Heaps

Happy birthday, George, and happy birthday, Abe.  While we’re at it, happy birthday to the two other presidents born in February: William Henry Harrison and Ronald Reagan. We owe all four a debt of gratitude. Being president has to be one of the toughest jobs ever created.  The pressure is enormous and the consequences of their actions are felt around the world.  But the fact is that presidents are neither drafted nor forced to take the position. They work hard and long for the honor. Only 44 people have ever held the office.  Presidents must be held to a very high standard and that is why we have a lengthy and arduous selection process.  Just look ahead to 2016.  Even though the election is almost two years down the road, the campaigns are underway.  Candidates and parties are already publicly and privately jockeying for position.  Such a long run-up almost certainly leads to voter fatigue.   But  there is an advantage to these lengthy campaigns: They allow voters to study and think carefully about the characteristics and agenda we want from our next leader.  And, in a time when the federal government has ground to a halt, when politicians and the public are badly divided on many major policy issues, leadership has seldom been at a greater premium. Historians have studied what makes a great president, a body of work that has been supplemented by public opinion polls.  While there is no consensus on

Heaps

the issue, the following list includes several of the commonly identified qualities.  l A compelling vision for the nation and the world. l The skills to achieve that vision by communicating, listening, and cooperating. l A limited but impactful agenda. l The courage to do the right thing even if unpopular. l A respect for history (understanding the long-term consequences of decisions). l Honesty and integrity. All of these components are important. But the foundation for presidential success is the compelling vision.  And that vision is not created in a vacuum. It must be solidly based on the needs of the people.  And the polls in this area are unanimous: The No. 1 priority is strengthening our economy. America needs a president who has a vision and workable plan to restore our nation’s economic vitality.  This plan cannot be limited to the short term.  This plan cannot be focused on any one generation.  This plan cannot be focused on any one class. This plan cannot be focused on any one strategy.  Employment, a living wage, tax reform, infrastructure, education, economic mobility, fairness, and ample rewards for innovation, hard work and good work all have to be part of the vision.  

America has the right to expect great leaders.  We have had great leaders in the past. Last year, journalist and statistician Nate Silver created a composite list of previous presidential rankings.  Topping the list were Abraham Lincoln, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, George Washington, Theodore Roosevelt, and Thomas Jefferson.  Very few would argue about the extraordinary quality of service they gave to their country. But great leaders are not limited to the distant past. We have had great leaders in the modern era.  While it is too early to accurately judge our most recent presidents, consider Truman (with his vision of a reconstructed world following the devastation of WWII), Eisenhower (with his vision of a safe and prosperous America), Kennedy (with his vision of an egalitarian world led by a vigorous America), Johnson (with his vision of a nation where poverty had been eradicated) and Reagan (with his vision of a small but effective government). No one person can have all the attributes we want in a leader. But we can work hard to ensure that the presidential candidates in 2016 have those we really need.  Let’s use the coming months not only to listen to the candidates and their messages, but also to communicate with them about what we the people value, what we the people believe most important, what we the people will vote for and support. — Gene Budig is a former chancellor of Kansas University and former president of Major League Baseball’s American League. Alan Heaps is a former vice president of the College Board in New York City.

PUBLIC FORUM

Fluoride issues To the editor: I’m thankful to the people raising the fluoride issue in our  drinking water. Regarding the Centers for Disease Control’s pro-fluoride stance, it should be noted that many public health advances, like reduction in lead   exposure, second-hand smoke, and trans fats, grew out of public awareness spearheaded by a small number of “activists,” not from the CDC or other national agencies. As implied by your quote from the late Prof. Burgstahler, people do need to read to be informed.  Unfortunately, Wiki-based online sources are not reliable when significant amounts of money are at stake. I was convinced of fluoride’s dangers by the books of Dr. Russell Blaylock, which cite the scientific literature on several surprising health  topics. William J. Bruno, Baldwin City

Washington — Since the Great Recession ended 4.5 years ago, Americans have struggled with high unemployment, static pay and a slow economy. Yet they’ve had one thing in their favor: low inflation. Well, hold the applause. Overall prices are barely budging because the economy is still weak. And the reverse may be true, too: Super-low inflation has likely slowed growth from the United States to Japan to Europe. It’s why the world’s central banks would like prices to rise. What’s wrong with very low inflation? Lots. When prices barely move, many people postpone purchases. Why rush, if the same price — or lower — will be available in six months? Collectively, these delays slow consumer spending, the economy’s main fuel.

Melting snow brings new set of problems Chicago —Weeks of subfreezing weather are giving way, at least briefly, to temperatures in the 40s and 50s, putting many Midwestern and Northeastern cities on guard for flooding, roof collapses and clogged storm drains. Some areas expected a double whammy: warm, springlike air combined with heavy rains that could compound the problem and turn the big melt into a

expected to drop below freezing again within days, threatening to turn all that water back into ice and creating treacherous driving conditions.

‘Mockingbird’ writer settles lawsuit Birmingham, Ala. — “To Kill a Mockingbird” author Harper Lee has settled the federal lawsuit she filed against a museum in her south Alabama hometown over its sale of souvenirs featuring her name and the title of her book, court documents show. An attorney for the Alabama native filed a motion Tuesday in federal court in Mobile saying Lee had reached an agreement with the Monroe County Heritage Museum in Monroeville. The document didn’t provide details on the settlement, and a lawyer for the museum, Matthew Goforth, declined to comment Wednesday. He cited the terms of settlement negotiations.

ending deadly street clashes that are sparking fears of civil war. “There will be consequences if people step over the line,” Obama said. Shortly after Obama’s remarks, Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych’s office said he and opposition leaders had agreed on a truce, although the brief statement offered no details about what it would entail or how it would be implemented. Meanwhile, the European Union called an extraordinary meeting of its 28 member countries on Thursday to address the situation.

2 Americans dead on hijacked ship Nairobi, Kenya — Two American security officers have been found dead on a ship made famous when it was hijacked by Somali pirates, according to a statement by Seychelles police on Wednesday. The two Americans — Jeffrey Reynolds and Mark Kennedy, both 44 — were found dead Tuesday in a cabin on the Maersk Alabama, according to the police. The ship was hijacked by pirates in 2009, an event dramatized in the movie “Captain Phillips” starring Tom Hanks. The two men’s bodies were found on Tuesday in their cabin on the ship where it was berthed in Port Victoria in the Indian Ocean island nation of Seychelles.

St. Louis — A middleschool football coach was charged Wednesday with first-degree murder in the death of a 10-year-old girl who was snatched off a street just blocks from her southwest Missouri home as several residents watched in horror. Craig Michael Wood also faces kidnapping and armed criminal action charges, according to Greene County Prosecuting Attorney Dan Patterson, who filed the charges late Wednesday afternoon. Wood is accused of kidnapping fourth-grader Hailey Owens in Springfield as she walked home from a friend’s house Tuesday evening. Patterson said the girl had been shot in the head. Wood was inside a truck parked outside his small, single-story home in Springfield when po-

his basement — stuffed in two trash bags inside plastic storage containers. The floor was still damp from bleach, the statement said. Authorities won’t officially confirm that the body is Hailey’s until after an autopsy, but Springfield Police Chief Paul Williams said “we have a high degree of confidence” in the preliminary identification, which indicates that it is the girl. Witnesses told investigators that a man in a gold 2008 Ford Ranger pickup truck drove down the street several times before abducting Hailey. Hailey did not attend Pleasant View School, where Wood worked. Williams said the girl and Wood apparently didn’t know each other. Williams said police have no idea of a motive for the killing. He said Wood has not talked to investigators since his arrest.

Self: KU showed poise at Tech By Gary Bedore gbedore@ljworld.com

Kansas University basketball coach Bill Self had a good feeling about what was about to transpire as he huddled with his players with 12 seconds left in Tuesday’s 64-63 victory at Texas Tech. “The guys were fine. I think they are confident in those situations,” Self said, referring to needing to score on the game’s final possession to overcome a 63-62 deficit and pull out a huge road win. “The demeanor was good. I think everyone felt comfortable with what we were trying to do. Certainly, we were fortunate, but it worked out well,” Self added. What happened, of course, is forward Perry Ellis flipped a pass to center Joel Embiid, who drove the baseline, but had the ball poked away with four ticks left. Andrew Wiggins retrieved the ball in the lane and dropped in a one-footer with 1.7 seconds left for the winner. “Very rarely do you ever choreograph a play where it works out perfectly in a situation like that,” Self said Wednesday on his weekly Hawk Talk radio show. “What you have to do is have your best players step up and make plays and that’s what happened.” Please see KU HOOPS, page 3B

‘Fish’ KANSAS FOOTBALL

Mike Yoder/Journal-World Photo

KANSAS UNIVERSITY SAFETY ANTHONY SMITHSON? NO, CALL HIM ‘FISH,’ a nickname given to Smithson by his grandmother when he was an infant. The junior-college transfer says he’s adjusted well to the KU football team and Lawrence, even if introductions haven’t always gone swimmingly.

Nickname sticks with KU juco safety Smithson By Benton Smith basmith@ljworld.com

Forget you ever read or heard the name Anthony Smithson. He doesn’t exist. Just ask him. Smithson, a junior-college transfer in the Kansas University football program’s latest signing class, goes by “Fish.” His grandmother, Quincy Anne Thorton, gave him the aquatic alias when he was just an infant, living in Baltimore’s inner city. “Since then, it kind of just

stuck with me,” the sophomore safety explained. “I usually don’t like going by Anthony too much.” KU football coach Charlie Weis found that out quickly when he first met the transfer from Hartnell College. “Fish — and please call him Fish — he’s such a pain in the butt if you don’t call him Fish,” Weis cracked at KU’s signing day press conference earlier this month. “I don’t know why. You can ask him. I would like to know the answer.”

Smithson embraced Fish, because his grandmother died when he was young, and he still fondly remembers the time he spent with her, going to church every Sunday and celebrating holidays in her house. “I feel more with her every time I hear the name Fish,” he said. As for why she chose that handle in particular, Smithson is keeping as mute as a mackerel on the subject. “That part right there is kind of a family secret,” he

said, smiling. “Not too many people know that part, and actually I just found out a couple of years ago.” Owning a peculiar nickname doesn’t bother Smithson, even if it can make introductions more tedious than necessary. When greeting a stranger for the first time, the safety can read what’s coming next. The person on the other side of the conversation might as well be a quarterback staring down a receiver.

Royals report to spring training with playoffs in mind By Alan Eskew The Associated Press

Tony Gutierrez/AP Photo

MEMBERS OF THE KANSAS CITY ROYALS HEAD TO BATTING PRACTICE during the first day of spring training for position players, Wednesday in Surprise, Ariz.

Surprise, Ariz. — Kansas City Royals manager Ned Yost is all about “Breaking Bad” this spring training. He has downloaded the popular cable TV series onto his iPad and plans to watch episodes as he runs on a treadmill. The Royals breaking good, however, will be foremost on Yost’s mind. On Wednesday, the first day for position players to report, he simply smiled when asked whether a documentary on the Royals’ breaking good would be a good download. The Royals had an awful

May last year. After winning their first three games of the month, they lost 19 of their next 23, going from a half-game out of first to 7 1/2 back in the AL Central. That horrible beginning all but doomed them. “How many ups and downs did we go through last year?” Royals ace James Shields said. “Almost every single kind you could actually think of. This year hopefully we can be a little more consistent with the wins. What did we have, eight wins in May? We experienced a lot of downs early in the season and we were still in it.” The Royals rebounded from their dreadful May to

finish 86-76, their first winning record since 2003, and were in the wildcard discussion late. The Royals have not appeared in a playoff game since winning the 1985 World Series when Hall of Famer George Brett was in his prime, Bret Saberhagen won the AL Cy Young and Steve Balboni set a club record with 36 home runs, which still stands. Can the Royals hike their win total to 90 games and take that next step? “I don’t want 90, I want 100,” shortstop Alcides Escobar said. The Royals start spring training confident they can Please see ROYALS, page 3B

COLLEGE BASKETBALL ROUNDUP

No. 1 ‘Cuse tumbles The Associated Press

Nick Krug/Journal-World Photo

KANSAS CENTER JOEL EMBIID DELIVERS A DUNK against Texas Tech to give the Jayhawks the lead with less than 30 seconds left on Tuesday at United Spirit Arena in Lubbock, Texas.

KU hoops Self’s version of the play goes something like this: “Perry threw the ball to Jo. Jo did the right thing trying to score, but he fumbled it. Andrew was ‘Johnny on the Spot’ there,” Self said. Wiggins after the game told Self, then related to reporters, that it was the first time since he’d started playing basketball that he’d hit a buzzer-beater for the win. “I started thinking about that. The kid is a freshman. His high school team (Huntington Prep in West Virginia) was so talented and so good I bet they didn’t play three close games a year,” Self said. “When you stop and think, he hadn’t been put in any situations like that ever. I bet he hadn’t shot the ball at game point with a chance to win maybe but once or twice in his life. Even though it was not a long shot ... he said he’s made several to tie, but not win, so I thought that was pretty neat.”

Self likes the way Wiggins drove the ball to the basket all night en route to 19 points off 6-of-11 shooting. He hit six of eight free throws and played 35 minutes. “When Perry had that great game against TCU (32 points last Saturday), he was by far the best player on the floor,” Self said. “It was his day. But when it’s ‘nobody’s day’ that’s when guys have got to step up and make plays. To me, last night was nobody’s day. Andrew just drove the ball and created opportunities for us through rotation rebounding, and things like that were very key.” l Lots of minutes: Embiid, who had been held out of a week of basketball because of knee and back aches and pains, scored 18 points and grabbed eight rebounds while playing 32 minutes at Tech. Self had been planning on using Embiid about 25 minutes. “The game was so slow. There weren’t as many possessions,” Self said. “There were so many stoppages. It’s probably my fault we didn’t play our bench the second

half. Nobody was tired. We weren’t playing out of foul trouble with the exception of Perry. There were so many stoppages, guys didn’t get winded near as much.” The only two bench players used the second half were Jamari Traylor and Tarik Black at nine and five minutes respectively. l Clinching at home?: Wins against Texas on Saturday and Oklahoma on Monday would assure KU at least a tie for its 10th straight Big 12 title. KU, 11-2 in the league, will play Texas (9-4) at 6:30 p.m. Saturday, and Oklahoma (8-5) at 8 p.m. Monday, both in Allen Fieldhouse. Texas lost to Iowa State on Tuesday in Ames. “I was hoping if we could get two games this week it would be a great week regardless of how anybody else did,” Self said. “That’s still the only way it’ll be a great week, if we play well Saturday. It certainly didn’t hurt anyone’s feelings from our standpoint that Iowa State was able to beat Texas. Texas played well.”

end a 29-year playoff drought. They signed free agents Omar Infante to play second base and left-hander Jason Vargas to fill a rotation vacancy. They also acquired outfielder Norichika Aoki in a trade with Milwaukee to bat leadoff. Yost started six players at second base last season. Chris Getz was the regular, hitting .220 with one home run and eight extra-base hits in 78 games. Infante hit .318 in 118 games with Detroit. The addition of Aoki, who had a .356 on-base percentage and struck out only 40 times in 674 plate-appearances in 2013, will allow Yost to drop Alex Gordon from leadoff to fifth in the batting order. Gordon led the club with 20 home runs and was second with 81 RBIs last year, but also struck out a team-high 141 times. “Now the responsibility is up to us,” righthander Jeremy Guthrie said. “There is nothing guaranteed. You can be hungry and bring in three other guys that are AllStars and it still wouldn’t guarantee us anything.” The Royals have been pointing to 2014 now that the developmental phase is over. “Look, you’ve got short windows,” Yost said. “There are not a lot of teams out there like the Braves that have won 14 consecutive division championships. Windows tend to be two, three, four years long. I think when you get in those windows, you better take full advantage of it.” All 60 players are in camp with the exception of outfielder Jimmy Paredes, who was claimed off waivers Monday from Baltimore.

“They kind of give me a weird look, like ‘Fish?’” he shared, laughing. In fact, he had a bizarre encounter while interacting with someone new on KU’s campus just a couple weeks back. “They just said, ‘I’m not calling you that.’ And just walked away,” Smithson recalled. “And I was just standing there like, ‘What am I supposed to say?’” That back-and-forth might be the only thing that has gone wrong for the 5-foot-11, 185-pound defensive back since he arrived in Lawrence. He signed with Kansas without even seeing the program in person, but hasn’t regretted the decision a bit. Soon after he arrived at KU, a couple of his junior-college teammates, junior defensive lineman Kapil Fletcher and junior running back De’Andre Mann, did the same. Plus, Keyon Haughton, a junior offensive lineman transfer from Georgia Military College, also hails from Baltimore, so he and Smithson had a bond right off the bat. “I’m loving KU right now,” Smithson said. “It’s kind of a good deal I got going on.” The only real adjustment facing Smithson, who has three years of eligibility remaining, is competing at the Division I level after a year of junior-college competition. He racked up 75 tackles and eight interceptions in his one season at Hartnell, located in Salinas, Calif. But he has approached his new team with an open mind, even though he has the confidence to step right into the safety rotation this spring — and Weis confirmed Smithson could do just that at his signing day press conference.

I just felt like it was home, and it fit more my playing style, the Big 12. If you’re a DB and you don’t like the Big 12 Conference, then you probably don’t like football that much.”

Dear Annie: One of our darling granddaughters started to pull out her eyelashes at around age 9. We expressed our concern to our son. Shortly after, we were told that our granddaughter was seeing a counselor to address this behavior. We were so relieved when she stopped. But about a year later, she started again. Now her 9-yearold brother is pulling hair out of his head. He has a bald spot about two inches in diameter. Our son and his wife have education degrees. The marriage and family appear OK. The kids seem happy, and they do well in school. I recently brought up the counseling to our son, but he said, “We tried that.” He indicated that the kids will stop on their own. Is stress causing this?

How involved should we get? Right now, we feel like it’s the elephant in the room. — BlueCollar Grandparents Dear Grandparents: Trichotillomania is a disorder that results in compulsive hair pulling. It is currently considered to be a “body-focused repetitive behavior.” There also may be a genetic predisposition, which would explain why both of your grandchildren suffer from it. Sometimes stress, anxi-

‘Karaoke’ a waste of time, talent People frequently ask me to name the best show on TV. We live in an age of very good television, so that’s not an easy one. Recently, I’d have to give the nod to “True Detective” on HBO, because of its performances and a script that equals and even surpasses the most provocative fiction. But ask me next week and I might have another answer. How about the worst show on television? That’s also a very difficult question. There’s a great many dreadful series in many lamentable categories. But if I had to name a truly pointless, unoriginal, nasty, time-waster of a show, it might be “Killer Karaoke” (9 p.m., TruTV). In this debacle, amateur performers try to get through a familiar song while getting doused with water, stung by electric shocks, bitten by dogs, blown by large fans or pelted with larvae, insects and filthy laundry. This series is pointless, cruel and annoying. And I guess that’s its entire point. As you might expect, it originated in the U.K., where it was called “Sing if You Can.” The first American season of “Killer” was hosted by “Jackass” personality Steve-O. That sort of makes sense, given the low-grade prank humor involved. But this season’s host is Mark McGrath, best known as a singer-songwriter with the ‘90s group Sugar Ray. Why would a real performer want to be associated with something that degrades music and its performance? As if to compensate for this profane act of selling-out, he comes off as aggressively plastic and enthusiastically generic. Seriously, put some hair gel on an android and program it for “attitude” and you might get more personality. A show like “Killer Karaoke” leaves everybody — its host, participants, producers and its viewers — just a little sadder, sleazier and emptier for having been exposed to it. Tonight’s other highlights

Results time on “American Idol” (7 p.m., Fox).

“The Taste” (7 p.m., ABC) wraps up its second season.

A chef accused of bigamy needs a lawyer on “Rake” (8 p.m. Fox).

Tim Gunn hosts “Project Runway: Under the Gunn” (8 p.m., Lifetime).

BIRTHDAYS Gloria Vanderbilt is 90. Basketball Hall-of-Famer Charles Barkley is 51. Rock musician Ian Brown is 51. Actor French Stewart is 50. Actor Ron Eldard is 49. Model Cindy Crawford is 48. Actor Jay Hernandez is 36. Actor Jake Richardson is 29. Singer Rihanna is 26.

ety or fatigue can trigger the hair pulling, but not always. Doctors do not know the underlying cause but believe it may develop due to a combination of genetic, hormonal, emotional and environmental factors. Appropriate treatment involves cognitive behavioral therapy, sometimes in combination with medication, hypnosis and relaxation techniques. Your son and his wife may already be taking the necessary steps, but either way, you can get more information through the Trichotillomania Learning Center at trich.org. Dear Annie: I recently learned that a friend’s son died from a heart attack. He was relatively young. I was both saddened and shocked. I was more despon-

JACQUELINE BIGAR’S STARS

For Thursday, Feb. 20: This year you are able to detach more and see new ways of handling problems. If you are single, you are going to meet someone quite bohemian. If you are attached, the two of you finally might decide to take that special trip you so often think about. 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)  You have much to think about and consider. You might need to mellow out a bit. Tonight: In the whirlwind of the moment. Taurus (April 20-May 20)  You seem ready to make a dream a reality. A partner or several other people might want to pitch in, especially if this idea could affect them too. Tonight: Say “yes” to an offer. Gemini (May 21-June 20)  A boss might have a lot to say, and will talk openly if you seem interested in what he or she has to share. Tonight: Get a head start on tomorrow’s work. Cancer (June 21-July 22)  Events could put you more in touch with your dynamic energy. Tonight: Get into weekend mode. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)  Use your instincts to achieve a better sense of harmony with a loved one. Tonight: Order in. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)  You might want to

dent that my friend and his wife did not attend his son’s funeral. They live in another state, but still. It was his son. Should I tell him how shocked and disappointed I am? Or should I simply overlook it? — Sensitive, Caring Person Dear Sensitive: While not attending his son’s funeral seems callous, is it possible that your friend has health issues that prevented him from traveling? Might he and his son have been estranged and his presence at the funeral unwelcome? You can let him know that you were surprised he didn’t attend the funeral, but he is under no obligation to satisfy your curiosity. — Send questions to anniesmailbox@comcast.net, or Annie’s Mailbox, P.O.

examine what is happening in your immediate environment. Tonight: Spend time with a loved one. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)  Listen to what is being shared, but hold back for now on sharing what you know. A partner might do the unexpected. Tonight: Do some shopping on the way home. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)  Take the lead, prioritize and delegate; otherwise, too many key details could be missed. Tonight: Think “weekend.” Make plans. Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)  You move through details quickly, yet one could slip past you. Slow down or recheck your work. Tonight: Ever playful. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)  Call on your self-discipline. Use your sixth sense to tune in to the obvious dynamics of a particular matter. Tonight: Get together with friends. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)  Look at the big picture to see your options more clearly. Choose a more easygoing pace. Tonight: A must appearance. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)  At the moment, use your instincts to proceed with an important matter. You will land on your feet. Tonight: Read between the lines. — The astrological forecast should be read for entertainment only.

Y

oga is the practice of connecting the mind and the body to achieve a state of spiritual tranquility. In fact, as I’ve learned from my yoga instructor, the term yoga is Sanskrit, and it means “to

yoke.” By focusing on breath during asanas — or yoga poses — students of yoga can quiet the mind and enter a state of peace. I’m a big advocate of yoga — in all of its health benefits and warm fuzzies — and so this week, I’d like to share with you my experience at the Yoga Center of Lawrence (YCL). The Yoga Center of Lawrence specializes in Iyengar — a form of Hatha yoga — which focuses on body alignment (often with the use of props). It’s peaceful, focused and slightly challenging, too. What begins with quiet meditation turns into engaging strengthening and stretching poses, and finishes with a relaxing floor pose (called Savasana). Class always concludes by honoring the divine within; we say “Namaste.” I’ve been attending classes at YCL on and off for about two years now, and it is easy to see the benefits! I feel much more centered and light, in both body and mind, after a 90-minute yoga class (that’s a typical session at YCL). This is, of course, with much thanks to the patient teachers. YCL instructors demonstrate the pose beforehand and are quick to adjust students’ alignment when need be. In fact, after hearing from some of the regular YCL students, one of the most popular comments had to do with the personalized attention each student receives in class. This unique and highly beneficial aspect of YCL makes it especially appealing. As for the class sessions, they span about 10 weeks, and drop-ins are always welcome. If you’re brand new to the practice of yoga, you may want to start with one of the Yoga Center’s free classes, which take place five times a year, between sessions. And if you’re especially

reluctant, thinking, “yoga isn’t for me, I can hardly touch my toes,” well, you’re wrong! Remember how I said Iyengar yoga utilizes props? Blankets, straps, blocks and even a rope wall (yeah, it’s pretty rad) come in handy and are used often to allow different body types to settle into a pose comfortably. The Yoga Center of Lawrence makes it easy to love yoga. I think Ashly LoBurgio Basgall, who has been a YCL student for 12 years now, said it best when she explained, “The Yoga Center studio is well-managed, peaceful and welcoming; it is a wonderful resource for the Lawrence community.” Namaste. — Jessica Pauly, aka Mrs. Mass., gives her thoughts on shopping, urban living and what’s new in Lawrence in CheckOut weekly and on her blog, mrsmass.com.

hen my dear in-laws asked what we grownup children — me, my husband, his sister and her husband — wanted for Christmas, there was very little debate. We like our new books and gadgets as much as the next family, but what we really all wanted was some time for our families to enjoy each other’s company. Of course, whatever we decided to do together had to be fun for the real children, too. At almost 11, my cute niece obviously has different interests than the Kid, my 3-year-old, so picking a destination that they both would enjoy was just a little challenging. And that’s how one Saturday in January, we ended up at Legoland Discovery Center at Crown Center in Kansas City, Mo. After lunch at Fritz’s and a little shopping, we were quickly whizzing up an elevator to learn how Legos are made. My mother-in-law wisely booked our tickets ahead online — which discounts entry from $17 per person to $15 per person (kids under 2 get in free) — so we avoided lines and got right to it. With three or four tactile exhibits that allowed the kids to feel like they were involved in the process, we joined in to watch the Legos change from small plastic pellets into the little bricks we know and love. My tall brother-in-

law measured his height in Legos, and I bravely stepped on the scale to see how many Legos I weighed. Then it was on to the main part of Legoland, which we were conveyed to by the Kingdom Quest Laser Ride. Grouping off in sets of four, we zapped spiders and trolls as the roller-coaster-like car zoomed us around. Our individual scores climbed higher with each shot, and unsurprisingly my Marine-trained marksman fatherin-law emerged victorious. While the initial parts of Legoland

were pretty structured, the heart of it is a gigantic room made for free play. A pit of super-sized Duplo Legos caught the Kid’s eye first. Then we ran through a huge, padded play structure before settling in near a set of test ramps where boys and girls — and maybe even a few mothers and fathers — could build Lego cars and race them against each other. My cute niece joined us in racing cars, but eventually went off to a master builder class to learn how Lego models are designed and created.

Then, we all caught up with each other for a short adventure movie in Legoland’s 4-D theater. I eventually had to stop for a drink at the snack bar, but I don’t think many of the children there even realized it existed. The Kid was much too busy building and crashing towers of Legos on the earthquake tables with his aunt, and pretending to zoom on the child-sized scooter made of thousands of tiny red Legos. All told, I think we were there for about three hours before someone finally started making reluctant mumblings about the drive home. After a little bit of spoiling the grandchildren in the gift shop and hugs goodbye, we climbed in our cars and headed for our separate parts of the state. The Kid was conked out — the hard, sweet sleep of a child who has played well — before we even left the parking lot, so I quietly asked Sweet Husband, “Whose idea was it to do this instead of Christmas, anyway?” He furrowed his brow and then smiled back gently at the Kid, “I don’t remember for sure, but it really was a good one.” — Meryl Carver-Allmond lives in Lawrence and writes about chickens, babies, knitting, gardening, food, photography, and whatever else tickles her fancy on any given day at www. mybitofearth.net.

Make home-cooked meals simple with a little planning and organization f you are frequenting fast food joints because that’s all you have time for, it’s time to be introduced to a chef’s secret weapon and your new cooking mantra. Mise en place, a French term meaning “put in place,” is a practice of food preparation that restaurants rely on to increase cooking efficiency. It’s the mantra for cooks at Pachamama’s, 800 New Hampshire St., as some of its elegant dishes need 36 to 48 hours of preparation. While dinner isn’t until 5, they are slicing, marinating, chopping and making sure everything is in place from 8 a.m. until 3 p.m., so they are ready for anything during the evening surge of diners, and to avoid any disasters later. “Mise en place will make or break an evening,” says owner and chef Ken Baker. It’s a philosophy of having bowls, ingredients, appliances and any necessary item prepared and in place so meal prep runs smoothly. But mise in place isn’t exclusive to big, fancy restaurants — you can practice it in your own kitchen.

HOW TO ‘MISE EN PLACE’ AT HOME

Bringing mise en place into the home may seem a little strange, especially if you aren’t normally serving a large group of people, but it’s beneficial regardless. Kristina Van Anne spends a good chunk of her Sunday prepping for a week’s worth of meals for just her and her boyfriend. Her cooking experience began in the Lawrence Country Club kitchen when she was 15 years old, later moving on to work at Evan Williams Catering, Ingredient and now in the bakery at the Kansas Union. “When I worked for Evan Williams Catering, I would just be slicing onions and chopping carrots for hours on end,” Van Anne says. “Or cutting 20 baguettes in a row to make crostinis and stuff like that.” As a full-time student with commitments to the bakery, lab research, the McNair scholars program and various other things, Van Anne has no time to spare. While she will admit the extreme nature of her mise en place, her expert tips can benefit any home: Smart shopping Beyond finding cheap groceries (Checkers is Van Anne’s favorite store), plan the meals you want ahead of time by scouring Pinterest for recipes. “I think it’s important to think about how to use your leftovers,” she says. “Like last week, I roasted a batch of chicken with potatoes and was able to make chicken salad, slice up part of it to make lunch meat and chop up the rest for tandoori chicken,” she says.

FOOD FAST. Kerry Shaw, a cook at Pachamama’s, prepares dumplings for lunch Feb. 18. An organized kitchen following the concept of “mise en place” or “put in place” is important for meal preparation and to have the kitchen in order to increase the efficiency of making meals. Pictured below, Pachamama’s uses stainless steel bins to keep food separate and organized.

Quick meals Van Anne’s fridge is stocked with pre-cooked hardboiled eggs, muffin pan omelettes and breakfast sandwiches that can be heated up for on-the-go meals.

Food prepping Wash the vegetables you buy in batches. Chop up any vegetables you might use during the week for salads or wraps that can be thrown together quickly. “If you’re going to chop up part of an onion one night, you might as well chop the entire thing for the next night.” The power of freezing Another benefit of mise en place is extending the shelf life of goods. At the bakery, Van Anne says, they freeze surplus breads and cakes, and when thawed, they are just as fresh and delicious. Freez-

ing is also good for over-cookers. Accidentally make too many meatballs for pasta? Freeze them raw and pop them in the oven for future meals.

Buy in bulk Twice a year Van Anne goes to Costco to get giant tenderloins of beef (which she butchers herself) so she always has steak in her freezer. On the nights when there is “nothing to eat” she makes filet mignon.

MULTITASKING

If you want to make several dishes for one night, mise en place helps to set up a prioritization game plan, says at-home cook Elif AndacJones. Her kitchen shelves are stocked with vacuum-sealed jars containing various key ingredients, and her countertop showcases appliances and individual bowls of the necessary food items for at least five dishes. AndacJones says that with two- to threehours’ notice, she can put together a dinner party for 20. Mise en place isn’t something she learned; it’s just how she grew up cooking. “I grew up in Istanbul, and cooking and eating is a huge part of the culture,” she says. “Dinner could go for several hours for everyday eating.” This particular menu — orange almond chocolate flourless cake; lentil soup; beef stew and rice; Turkish phyllo dough filled with feta cheese, parsley and paprika; and a side of cucumber yogurt dip (similar to tzatziki) — isn’t unlike a meal she’d make any day of the week, she says. Three whole oranges (peels included) previously boiled for an hour and a half and then quartered, get thrown into a blender with ground almonds, cocoa, baking

soda, baking powder and eggs. Andac-Jones pours the product into a buttered springboard baking pan after just 10 minutes. “The taste of almonds, chocolate and orange; you can’t go wrong with it,” she says. The cake sits in the oven for 50 minutes, which gives her time to make the soup, let simmer for 30 minutes and garnish with butter and paprika; quickly mix Mountain High yogurt with previously shredded English cucumber, garlic and sea salt (a dip with bread); and

A double dose of style for women

3 simple ways to wear stripes

W

earing stripes is so classic that you don’t have to ever worry about it going out of style. Each season, especially in the spring and summer, you will find stripes reinvented. I know it can be difficult to visualize a fresh striped look in this weather, but there are many ways that you can start incorporating the classic spring style into your wardrobe now. Considering stripes are timeless, you probably already have something striped hanging in your closet. It’s just a matter of knowing what to pair them with. Elizabeth recently took advantage of a sale at Anthropologie and picked up a brown- and black-striped tunic shirt. This shirt is the ultimate casual piece, so we instantly thought to pair them with our casual converse kicks. Skinny jeans keep the look functional. This would be a great option for running errands, and if the weather calls for it (which it probably will for the next several weeks), throw on your wool coat to keep warm. Another option is to go for a striped bottom. If you’re worried about horizontal stripes making you look wider, you

should either look for a vertical-striped skirt or make sure to wear shoes with some sort of heel to elongate your legs. We styled our striped skirt with a colorful sweater, a wool coat and dressed it up with a statement necklace. The easiest way to sport stripes right now is to go for a statement piece like a striped dress. The Gap has several striped dress styles. This particular dress I found at the Plaza location in Kansas City (on sale)! The best thing about sporting one piece is the power to dress it up or down. You could wear tights, no tights, leggings, no leggings, flats, boots or heels with this. The styling options are endless! — Emily and Elizabeth Kennedy are twin sisters and fashion bloggers who share a blog called Fashion Column Twins at fashioncolumntwins.com. Emily writes this column.

lights for indoor gardeners

M

any gardeners use fluorescent lights to start young vegetable and flower plants during the spring or to grow certain houseplants all year long. And no, you do not need the special “grow” lights for this. Traditionally we have used the basic shop light suspended a few inches above the tops of the plants with the common T-12 lamps. But there are newer lamps that may be a better choice for indoor gardens. These are known as T-8 and T-5 lamps. The number after the “T” refers to the diameter of the lamp in eighths of an inch. Therefore, a T-12 lamp is 12/8 or 1.5 inches in diameter, the A T-8 is 8/8 or 1 inch in diameter and a T-5 is 5/8 of an inch in diameter. So does a smaller diameter mean less light? Not at all. The T-5 is the brightest of the three. A T-12 lamp puts out 1,500 to 1,700 lumens for a 48-inch lamp. This lamp has a life of between 10,000 and 20,000 hours. The T-8 lamp produces 3,400 lumens and has a 40,000hour life expectancy. The T-5 is rated at 5,000 lumens but lasts only 30,000 hours. Lamp life is a weak selling point. A lamp turned on for 12 hours every day would take

almost seven years to reach the 30,000-hour mark. Another advantage for these newer lamps is they use less electricity per lumen. Our traditional 48-inch T-12 is rated at 40 watts, the T-8 at 32 watts and the T-5 at 54 watts. So are there drawbacks? Of course there are. First, you cannot use your existing T-12 fixtures but must use fixtures made for the type of lamp you buy. The T-5 fixture that holds four lamps would cost about $200 (About $60 of this cost is the four T-5 lamps included). A three-bulb T-8 fixture with the three bulbs costs about the same ($200) but would not produce as much light. But the T-8 lamps use less electricity per lamp and last longer. The question becomes, is it worth it? If you have a single fixture and are satisfied with your results, then probably not. If you have a more extensive setup and/or want your plants to be stockier, then these might be of value. — Stan Ring is the Horticulture Program Assistant for K-State Research and Extension in Douglas County.

Split your own wood

W

ith the right tools and a little practice, splitting wood can be fun and rewarding. Step 1: Splitting mauls are by far the best tool for splitting wood. Basically a splitting wedge with a handle, splitting mauls are less likely to get stuck in the wood and their design creates outward pressure within the wood to facilitate splitting. For most, the lighter-weight mauls work better than heavier mauls because they are easier to swing at a higher speed. Step 2: Cut a round of wood to use as a chopping block. The round should be about knee high and level. Step 3: Place the wood to be split on the round with its smaller end facing upward. Look for cracks or weak spots in the wood and position the weak spot closest to you. Step 4: Stand back from the round, preferably slightly uphill. Set the maul blade on the top of the log, near the edge, rather than dead center, parallel with the weak spot. The maul handle should be at hip height, forming a 90-degree angle with the wood. Fully extend your arms and grasp the handle with your dominant hand above your weaker hand. Bend slightly forward at the waist. Step back half a step and set your feet firmly on the

ground, shoulder width apart. Step 5: Lock your focus on the intended impact spot. Concentrate on driving the maul straight through the wood, visualizing the split wood. Step 6: With arms fully extended, from a slightly bent position, stand up, raising the maul straight over your dominant sideâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shoulder. Step 7: Without hesitation begin a downward swing with the maul, aiming through the wood. Your dominant hand should slide down the maul handle to meet the lower hand during the swing. It is the speed of the swing, rather than the force of the blow, that will split the wood. Step 8: Immediately before impact, pull slightly back using your core muscles and legs â&#x20AC;&#x201D; not your arms. Step 9: Impact should be at a 90-degree angle. Bend at the waist as the maul head strikes, with knees slightly bent, to allow the maul head to travel straight through the wood. Step 10: Continue to strike the same spot in the same manner until the log is split. Logs can be split in halves, quarters or smaller depending on your needs. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Linda Cottin can be reached at checkout@ljworld.com.
