Concessions to landlords clear path ahead of March 13 public meeting



By Chad Lawhorn Twitter: clawhorn_ljw

A revised proposal to license apartments in Lawrence gives new concessions to landlords, but it may be the compromise needed to win the necessary city commission votes. Mayor Mike Dever, who voted against the previous rental licensing proposal, said he feels much better about a compromise version crafted by Commissioner Jeremy Farmer. “I feel pretty comfortable that many of my concerns have been addressed,” Dever said. The basics of the new plan: l The city would adopt a list of 27 violations that would cause an apartment to lose its rental license, and thus become illegal to rent until the violations are fixed. Unlike previous proposals, the list does not include problems that do not pose threats to the life or safety of residents, such

Gay rights backers seek new Kansas anti-bias rules By John Hanna The Associated Press


Topeka — Having won a key legislative fight with social conservatives in Kansas, gay rights advocates aren’t content with simply blocking a measure they said would have encouraged

The group has tried unsuccessfully three times since 2007 to add sexual orientation or gender identity to Kansas’ anti-discrimination laws. “They clearly are inextricably linked as issues,” he said.

states who are expanding their Medicaid,” Praeger told the audience. If Kansas accepted the proposal, tens of thousands of additional low-income Kansans would have access to Medicaid, Praeger said. Currently, she said, there is no Medicaid coverage for adults without children, and residents whose income is between 32 percent and 70 percent of the federal poverty level cannot receive insurance under the ACA. “We have a lot of folks who can’t afford their health care,” Praeger said. “People don’t choose to get sick.” Opponents in Kansas, including Gov. Sam Brownback, say they don’t trust the federal government to follow through on its commitments to fund the expansion and that the costs of the program would take away from spending on core services like education. Praeger, whose husband was a physician in Lawrence before his recent retirement, said opponents argue universal health care already exists by way of requiring emergency rooms to treat patients regardless of whether they can pay. But for Praeger and other advocates for the expansion, that’s not enough.

came what critics called the deny-services-to-gays bill, a Democratic challenger has announced her second attempt to defeat state Rep. Lance Kinzer, R-Olathe. Liz Dickinson, of Lenexa, announced her candidacy last week for House District 30, which includes portions of Lenexa and Olathe. Kinzer defeated her 54 percent to 46 percent in 2012. Kinzer has been a leader in the Kansas Legislature in promoting anti-abortion and so-called religious freedom legislation. Kinzer was the major force behind House Bill 2453, which was approved by the House but then killed by the Senate after an avalanche of criticism from gay rights supporters, Democrats and business interests. “Families in our district are counting on the Legislature to fully fund our schools, to ensure fair and reasonable taxation and to attract good paying jobs to our state,” Dickinson said.

as the condition of the yard or whether the siding is in good condition. Instead, the new master list includes items such as missing windows, exterior doors without locks, badly leaking roofs, issues of structural integrity, missing handrails, nonworking smoke detectors, several electrical issues, too many tenants and several others. l Landlords would be eligible for an incentive program if a property passed inspection with five or fewer violations. The incentive is that the landlord would have properties inspected every six years instead of every three years. That’s a change from a previous proposal, where a property could have a number of minor violations and still qualify for the incentive program, but it could not have any major violations. The new list of 27 violations includes many items that previously were classified as major violations. Theoretically, an apartment could have several significant violations — such as a badly leaking roof, mold and missing smoke detectors — and still qualify for the city incentive program, once the violations were corrected. Farmer said he thinks such instances will be rare, but said city officials will monitor the program closely in its first few months.

“If we find that we’re giving the incentive to some really shady landlords, we can go back and look at the ordinance again,” Farmer said. l City inspectors would be allowed to issue citations for code violations that aren’t part of the master list of 27 items. But those violations — items such as stuck windows, holes in Sheetrock or rubbish in the yard — couldn’t be used to deny a landlord a rental license. Instead, the landlord would be subject to ordinary fines and enforcement actions if the violations aren’t fixed. l The city would not ask tenants to sign a consent form when they move into their apartments allowing inspectors to take pictures/video of alleged code violations. If during an initial inspection an inspector believes pictures or video are needed to document a violation, the inspector would seek permission from the tenant at that point. l The program would create two distinct inspection standards for rental

“What I know is that we all want safe housing,” Farmer said. “We just need to figure out the vehicle to get there.” The program would cover about 20,000 rental units per year, although not all of those units would be inspected every year. The city proposes using a sampling method that would result in about 5,300 inspections per year. The program is expected to cost about $420,000 per year to operate, funded through registration and inspection fees paid by landlords. Members of the landlord community or neighborhood associations haven’t yet had a chance to publicly weigh in on the new proposal. The city will host a public meeting to discuss it at 6 p.m. March 13 at Lawrence High School. Commissioners are scheduled to take public comment and vote on the proposal at their March 25 meeting.

Farmer is proposing that none of the standards for the singlefamily rental inspection program change. That would mean single-family landlords won’t be eligible for the same incentive system offered to landlords of multifamily zoned property. Under Farmer’s proposal, though, the single-family inspection and registration fees — paid by landlords — would be increased by about $9 per year, per unit, on average. Farmer said he thought trying to educate both single-family and multifamily landlords about a new program would be too much to accomplish at the same time. City Commissioner Terry Riordan, who previously has supported a more stringent licensing

“It’s not health care when people end up in emergency rooms,” Praeger said. “That’s sick care.” Looking forward, Praeger told the group to get active if they want to be part of the change. Praeger said a majority of Kansans want the expansion, pointing to a recent poll commissioned by the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network that said 72 percent of Kansans support accepting federal dollars to expand Medicaid. “I think eventually states will have to participate in Medicaid,” Praeger said. “It just doesn’t make sense at all.” Praeger is part of a group of six Kansas leaders — three Democrats and three Republicans including Lt. Governor candidate Jill Docking, former Lt. Governor Sheila Frahm and Kansas Democratic Party chair Joan Wagnon — who founded the grassroots coalition “Reroute the Roadmap.” According to the coalition’s website, the group exists to “fight the extreme, failed policies of the Brownback administration.” Along with opposing the state’s tax reform measures and “inadequate” school funding, Praeger said, the coalition works to inform the public about the effects of the decision not to expand Medicaid. “We’re not advocating for anyone to be elected or defeated,” Praeger said. “We just want to get the information out there.”

BRIEFLY Disney ends funding to spokesman, said in a stateSunday. Disney does scouts over gay policy ment not provide direct funding Los Angeles — The Walt Disney Company will cut funding to the Boy Scouts of America beginning in 2015 because of a policy that bans gay adult leaders in the organization. The Boy Scouts organization is “disappointed” by the decision, which will affect the organization’s ability to serve children, Deron Smith, a Boy Scouts

to the Boy Scouts, but it donates money to some troops in exchange for volunteer hours completed by Disney employees, he said. “We believe every child deserves the opportunity to be a part of the Scouting experience and we are disappointed in this decision because it will impact our ability to serve kids,” he said.

Genesis gym expands, Burger King to reopen on Sixth In my small basement gym, the only thing that is granite are my abs. (Excuse me for a moment. My wife seems to be choking on her Cheerios.) Regardless, members at Lawrence’s Genesis Health Club off West Sixth Street soon will be getting a whole lot more granite and other highend finishes. The club recently received a building permit for $1 million worth of renovations at the gym, which formerly was operated by the Lawrence Athletic Club. The Wichita-based Genesis chain took over operations in December 2012, and has had plans for a major renovation on its mind ever since. “The layout of this building made it hard for us to get the drawings just right,” said Joe Oxler, the regional club director for Genesis. “The club is doing very well, but it is not a Genesis product yet. The classes and services are, but the overall look of the facility isn’t there yet.” Among the planned renovations are entirely new locker rooms that will be about double the

size of the current ones. The design will feature granite countertops, high-end shower stalls and other amenities. Oxler said the club also will have a much more open feel. The renovation will remove many interior walls. Plans call for the weight room, cardio area and childcare area to grow larger. The club will add a shake bar and hopes to carve out an area to add massage therapy. Some club members have been worried that the gym could lose other amenities such as the basketball, racquetball and indoor pool areas, but Oxler said all those features will remain. Oxler said he hopes construction can begin in mid-March. He said the work will be done in

phases so the club will not have to be closed. He hopes to have the bulk of the construction finished by late fall. Genesis has two locations in Lawrence, with the other one being the former location of the Maximus club at 2339 Iowa St. Oxler said the company would like to make improvements to that club as well, but is still working on a deal to purchase the real estate there. “Our plan is to always have two facilities in Lawrence,” Oxler said. “We want one on the north end and one on the south end of town. We’re working everyday to try and buy that (south) location.” The fitness industry has been an active one in Lawrence lately. The Summit at 901 New Hampshire shook up the market about two years ago by opening the first true, full-service fitness club downtown. More recently, there has been the addition of RydeBarre, a cycle-oriented fitness facility in West Lawrence, and plans for about a $700,000 expansion at Body Boutique, the all-fe-

Our plan is to always have two facilities in Lawrence.” — Joe Oxler, regional club director for Genesis male fitness facility near Ninth and Iowa. I guess everyone wants abs like granite these days. (Really, again? She’s got to quit eating Cheerios.) lll

Of all the days to misplace my 3-foot-long trumpet ... here goes anyway. Hear ye, hear ye: The King lives. The King lives. The King lives. Let us rejoice with Whoppers, fries and copious amounts of breakfast sandwiches in defiance of the witch doctors known as cardiologists. (This would have sounded much better with the trumpet.) Regardless, I’m obviously referring to the Burger King at 1107 W. Sixth St. If you remember, it has been closed since a fire significantly damaged it on Aug. 12. The delay in reopening the facility has caused some to worry

that the days of Burger King at that location may be over. No need to worry about that, says Lance Zach, regional manager for the Burger King franchise. Zach said he hopes to have the store open in about six to eight weeks. “It is a popular location in Lawrence,” Zach said. “We’re anxious to get rolling on it.” Zach said delays with insurance payments related to the fire have been the big holdup in getting the restaurant remodeled and reopened. But Zach said those issues appear now to be settled. He said officials have determined that an electrical connection in a can light in the dining room caused the fire. Zach said some construction work had taken place on the site earlier, but that was just to gut the building. He said the remodeling plans have now been filed with the city and are awaiting a building permit. Plans call for a new look on the inside and the outside. Zach said the exterior will look more like the relatively new Burger King in the Bauer Farms development near Sixth and Wakarusa. The inside

also will have a more modern look, and will feature a countertop area where people can plug in their computers and other electronic devices. Zach said the location receives a good amount of university-related business, and area customers have been pretty vocal in their support for reopening. I know I have gotten numerous calls inquiring about the store’s future. “You think you get calls,” Zach told me. “I probably get that question three or four times a day when I’m in Lawrence.” Zach said the store is currently interviewing for new staff members, and expects to begin training new employees at the other two Lawrence locations in the next couple of weeks. He said the store will hire about 25 employees, including seven managerial positions. People can apply at Now, the trumpet.

Strong charges If Sen. Harry Reid believes the Koch brothers are lying about the Affordable Care Act, he needs to back up his claims with facts.


evada Sen. Harry Reid, the U.S. Senate’s majority leader, recently said brothers Charles and David Koch, of Wichita, are “about as un-American as anyone I can imagine.” He also accused the Kochs of “spreading lies” about President Obama’s health care plan, saying ads sponsored by the Kochs are lies and that the brothers “are immoral and dishonest.” He added, “It’s time that the American people spoke out against this terrible dishonesty of these two brothers.” The natural reaction from such charges would be to fight back, but such actions would merely elevate Reid in the eyes of those who share his opinion. The best course of action for the Kochs or their representatives would be to merely ask the Nevada senator to identify and refute the so-called “lies,” and if he is serious about the matter, he should back up his claims with specific information. Or, perhaps the best thing the Kochs can do is not respond. Instances such as this should cause those interested or concerned to take a close look at the individual making the charges and judge the character, record and mission of that individual. The Kochs don’t need defending. The businesses they own are among the nation’s finest and most productive, providing employment for hundreds of thousands of people. Also, they have been among the country’s most generous in their philanthropic giving to a wide variety of programs and institutions. Sen. Reid may not like the advertisements and messages paid for by the Kochs, but he exposes his thin skin and political blindness when he suggests the Kochs are “un-American,” dishonest and liars.


National GOP wields state influence Colorado Springs, Colo. — In today’s unforgiving politics, both parties often think: “If at first you don’t succeed, don’t darken our door again.” Ken Buck, however, had another idea. In 2010, he peeved national Republican leaders by seeking the Colorado party’s Senate nomination against a candidate preferred by those leaders. He won the primary but maladroit campaigning erased his mid-October lead against Democrat Michael Bennet, who won the election — and now is chairman of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee. Last Wednesday, Buck complicated Bennet’s task of helping Democrats retain control of the Senate. Until then, Buck had been seeking the Republican nomination to run against incumbent Sen. Mark Udall. Buck’s motto might have been, “If at first you don’t succeed, so what? Neither did Mickey Mantle.” (In 1951, the Yankees sent Mantle back to the minors.) Buck is a sizable fellow whose bulk and demeanor say “football,” but his persistence is not testimony to an inordinate love of, or skill at, the blocking and tackling of politics. “Your parents,” he says, “warn you not to brag about yourself or beg, and what you do in politics is brag and beg.” You seek contributions to finance advertisements proclaiming your excellence. It speaks well of him that this does not come naturally. But speaking well, as that is understood in politics — circumlocutions

George Will

In 2010 and 2012, weak candidates here and in Delaware, Missouri, Indiana and Nevada helped prevent Republicans from winning Senate control.” serving tactical reticence — is not his forte. Winston Churchill said Secretary of State John Foster Dulles was a bull who carried his own china shop around with him. Buck, a former Princeton football player, brings to politics an NFL linebacker’s negligible interest in subtlety and a prosecutor’s — he is one — tenacity and pugnacity. Before a 2010 campaign event, when questioned about Barack Obama’s citizenship, Buck, speaking near a tape recorder, laughingly said to someone, “Will you tell those dumbasses at the tea party to stop asking questions about birth certificates while I’m on the camera?” When he was asked at a campaign stop last week about impeaching Obama, he explained earnestly that senators are the jurors in an impeachment trial and Dem-

ocrats are a Senate majority. It was an answer technically correct but politically inept because it could elicit from hostile media a headline such as “Buck ponders Obama impeachment.” In 2010, Buck’s inability to deflect baiting questions with dusty answers led him, on national television, to discuss homosexuality, comparing it to alcoholism. On Wednesday, the hidden — but inferable — hand of the national GOP shuffled Colorado’s political deck. Second-term Republican Rep. Cory Gardner, 39, who represents the sprawling district that includes the eastern half of the state and where Mitt Romney won 59 percent of the vote, will seek and probably win the Republican Senate nomination. Buck, who lives in the district, will seek and probably win the nomination for Gardner’s House seat. This minuet demonstrates that the national GOP is becoming more energetic about influencing state parties’ candidate selections. In 2010 and 2012, weak candidates here and in Delaware, Missouri, Indiana and Nevada helped prevent Republicans from winning Senate control. A recent Quinnipiac poll, which showed Udall only narrowly leading Buck (4542), recorded Obama’s approval in Colorado at 37 percent. Sixty percent of Coloradans oppose Obamacare. Gardner, who has a solid conservative voting record but does not have a serrated edge, is suited to purple Colorado.

In a forthcoming issue of The National Interest, Henry Olsen of the Ethics and Public Policy Center in Washington explains why Republicans rarely nominate the most conservative presidential candidate. Olsen says there are four kinds of Republican voters: moderates, somewhat conservatives, evangelicals and very conservative, secular voters. The somewhat conservatives are the largest cohort, about 35 percent to 40 percent of the national GOP. And, Olsen says, “they always back the winner”: Exit polls “from virtually any state caucus or primary since 1996” show “the winner received a plurality of or ran roughly even among the somewhat conservative voters.” They “are found in similar proportions in every state,” unlike evangelicals who are found disproportionately in Southern and border states. In presidential years, moderates are the second-largest group, approximately 25 percent to 30 percent of all GOP voters — even including 31 percent to 39 percent in South Carolina since 1996. More than 80 percent of Colorado voters, many of them independents, live on the Front Range, from Fort Collins to Denver to Pueblo. Last week, the national GOP may have found a template for making 2014 more rewarding and 2016, when its presidential nominee must win some blue and purple states, less daunting.   — George Will is a columnist for Washington Post Writers Group.



A 23-year-old Lawrence man was being held in the county jail years today for invesago tigation of makIN 1974 ing a terroristic threat. According to Lawrence police, the man had been picked up at 6:30 a.m. after having lost control of his car and driving it into a ditch at 31st and Iowa. Police had offered the man a ride to the home of a friend, but as the man climbed into the cruiser, he asked if the officer minded riding with a member of the Symbionese Liberation Army, the group claiming responsibility in the recent kidnapping of heiress Patricia Hearst.



Love thy neighbor? To the editor: One is tempted to rant and rave when confronted with the hatred and bigotry on display in the letter published Feb. 25 titled “Sinful lifestyle.” Instead, I will keep it simple and ask if this is what Christians really mean when they say to love their neighbor as they do themselves? If it is, I can only assume that I am surrounded by a lot of selfloathing individuals. Donna Swan, Lawrence

Not free To the editor: The American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network poll showed 72 percent of Kansans supported taking federal funds to expand Medicaid coverage in Kansas, (Journal-World, Feb. 27). The federal government has promised to pay 100 percent of the cost of expansion for three years; and 90 percent in subsequent years. From virtually every article or editorial letter I have seen, there are two reasons Kansans believe we should expand medicaid. First, it would expand medical coverage to tens of thousands of low-income  Kansans.  Secondly, the federal government would pay for the expansion. Providing medical coverage for  children and low income Kansans is a worthwhile goal. However, most supporters of the expanded coverage act like it will be “free” because the money comes from the federal government. 

Where does the federal government get money? The money comes from borrowing money, from printing money and from taxpayers.  I think you see the problem here.  Almost half of the country does not pay any federal tax. The other half picks up the tab. So when you think federal dollars are free, remember the nation is more than $17 trillion in debt, with unfunded expenses for Medicare and Social Security promises which are close to $100 trillion, not counting the promise of Obamacare. I sincerely hope I live to see someone balance the desire to provide services with the ability to pay for them. It doesn’t look good at this point. If you can do it, speak up.  Bill Reynolds, Lawrence

Ossified thinking To the editor: I read with great interest on Friday morning about the new addition to the Kansas Statehouse: a 17 foot juvenile mosasaur hanging on the wall in Gov. Brownback’s ceremonial office. Though I understand the geological and paleontological significance of the marine fossil, I couldn’t help but think of its apt symbolic meaning to the state of Kansas as our Legislature seems to make decisions based on ossified premises with pre-historic enlightenment. I am now waiting for the next batch of tea-partiers to claim the fossils are not as old as the scientists claim them to be and that they shared the earth with human beings. Lisa Stockton, Lawrence

From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for March 3, 1914: years “Prof. W. A. McKago eever in an adIN 1914 dress before Grant Township folks in the White School House last night urged the country folks to pay more attention to the social side of their life, to pay more attention to the matter of recreation for the young folks of the community. Prof. McKeever was enthusiastically received by the folks of this community and much interest was taken in the discussion. ... ‘We are approaching the time when we will no longer say “It is my child and I’ll do as I please with it.” The child belongs to the community. The community is responsible for the success or failure of every child. ... Parents have no right to sacrifice the interest of the child for their own material gain. No right to keep the child from school to work in order that the parent may accumulate land and stock.” — Compiled by Sarah St. John

Perevalne, Ukraine (ap) — Warning that it was “on the brink of disaster,” Ukraine put its military on high alert Sunday and appealed for international help to avoid what it feared was the possibility of a wider invasion by Russia. Outrage over Russia’s military moves mounted in world capitals, with U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry calling on President Vladimir Putin to pull back from “an incredible act of aggression.” A day after Russia captured the Crimean Peninsula without firing a shot, fears grew in the Ukrainian capital and beyond that Russia might seek to expand its control by seizing other parts of eastern Ukraine. Senior Obama

administration officials said the United States now believes that Russia has complete operational control of Crimea, a proRussian area of the country, and has more than 6,000 forces in the region. Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk said there was no reason for Russia to invade Ukraine and warned that “we are on the brink of disaster.” “We believe that our western partners and the entire global community will support the territorial integrity and unity of Ukraine,” he said Sunday in Kiev. World leaders rushed to try to find a diplomatic solution to the crisis. NATO held an emergency meeting in Brussels, Britain’s foreign minister

flew to Kiev to support its new government and Kerry was to travel to Ukraine Tuesday. The United States, France and Britain debated the possibility of boycotting the next Group of Eight economic summit, to be held in June in Sochi. In Kiev, Moscow and other cities, thousands of protesters took to the streets to either decry the Russian occupation or celebrate Crimea’s return to its former ruler. Kerry, interviewed on U.S. television news shows, talked about boycotting the G-8 summit, as well as possible visa bans, asset freezes and trade and investment penalties against Russia. All the foreign ministers he talked to were prepared “to go to the hilt” to isolate Russia, Kerry said.

Separatists blamed in China slashings Kunming, China — Authorities on Sunday blamed a slashing rampage that killed 29 people and wounded 143 at a train station in southern China on separatists from the country’s far west, while local residents said government crackdowns had taken their toll on the alleged culprits. Police fatally shot four of the assailants — putting the overall death toll at 33 — and captured another after the attack late Saturday in Kunming, the capital of Yunnan province, the official Xinhua News Agency said. But authorities were searching for at least five more attackers. State broadcaster CCTV said two of the assailants were women, including one of the slain and the one detained. The attackers’ identities have not been confirmed, but evidence at the scene showed that it was “a terrorist attack carried out by Xinjiang separatist forces,” Xinhua said. The far western region of Xinjiang is home to a simmering rebellion against Chinese rule by some members of the Muslim Uighur population.

At KU, confetti cannon overkill Rising above the ashes of a meltdown came a voice of reason from Kansas University basketball coach Bill Self, winner of at least a share of each of the past 10 Big 12 titles. “To me, we missed our opportunity to celebrate,” Self said Saturday after his team blew a 10-point lead in a 72-65 loss to Oklahoma State in Stillwater, Okla. “We probably won’t celebrate. We may do a little something if we’re successful against (Texas) Tech (on Wednesday).” That doesn’t alter how impressive it was to win the Big 12 outright, particularly when starting three freshmen among five first-year starters. The Jayhawks removed the “co” from their “champions” title early in the first half, then watched the Cowboys storm the court. Rough timing, but that’s fine. It’s about winning titles, not celebrating them. KU has maintained a blue-collar edge during its decade of dominance, no easy juggling act. Subtle updates to Allen Fieldhouse in recent years have been done in a way so as not to erode the old-time feel of the place. If KU were to break out the confetti cannons and stage a full-bore celebration Wednesday, it would signal a step away from authentic and onto a slippery slope toward Hollywood. Here’s hoping the “little something” is nothing more than showing the trophy to fans awaiting senior speeches. Fine. But confetti cannons, a corny song, caps and T-shirts? That works for a semi-spontaneous, mini-party when the title is fresh and sweat from the clincher hasn’t dried. Nine days after winning a game that extended the streak? Too scripted and nine days too late. Like so many in a college basketball landscape flush with good teams and short on great ones, KU has its share of concerns. Among them: Naadir Tharpe’s consistency, the fitness of Joel Embiid’s back, finding the right defensive matchup for Perry Ellis and improving the rate at which Andrew Wiggins’ shots at the rim drop. Find solutions in those areas and confetti will fly soon enough.

Senior Roberts lives, breathes ball By Gary Bedore

There are days Kansas University senior walk-on Niko Roberts leads the Red (Scout) Team in a two-hour basketball practice in Allen Fieldhouse, then heads over to Lawrence High’s gym to watch his brother, Justin, direct the show for the Lions. “After that, I’ll go watch basketball on TV for three hours,” said Niko, a self-proclaimed hoops “junkie.” “I’m like my dad. I can watch basketball all day and night.” Son of current KU assistant/former St. John’s head coach Norm Roberts, Niko has lived and breathed basketball at KU the last four seasons.

KU has high hopes for OL Haughton By Bobby Nightengale

Kansas University football coach Charlie Weis isn’t afraid to share his expectations for mid-year junior-college transfer Keyon Haughton. At the signing day news conference last month, Weis said Haughton will be a guy to watch for the upcoming season. Weis even called the offensive lineman who transferred from Geor-

gia Military College “a bad muchacho” and said he’d be a guy he’d want on his side in a street fight. “It made me feel good,” Haughton said. “It made me know that you’re all going to be looking out for me, and I’m going to work hard so you all can see me and spot my talent.” Haughton only began playing football in his freshman year of high school. Growing up, he was a long-stick midfielder in lacrosse and also

played basketball. At Du Bois High in Baltimore, he played tackle on the offensive line despite not having nearly the 6-foot-2, 310-pound stature he’s at now. Haughton’s father, Demetrius Whitted, pushed Haughton to work out longer and harder than the rest of his teammates. “A lot of push, especially Mike Yoder/Journal-World Photo on the weekends,” Haughton said. “When no one else OFFENSIVE LINEMAN KEYON HAUGHTON MEETS THE MEDIA in this photo from Please see HAUGHTON, page 3B Feb. 12.

Starting time Royals: Davis, one of the candidates for the fifth spot in the rotation, was pretty efficient. He walked one, hit a batter with a pitch and had three strikeouts. “Towards the end I got the release point down and got on top of (the ball),” he said. “I threw a couple of better changeups.” Cubs: Jackson gave up three hits and a run over two innings in his first start of the spring. He struck out three and hit a batter with a pitch. Trainer’s room Cubs: Castro didn’t think his injury was as serious as a left hamstring problem that sidelined him from Feb. 27 to March 13 last spring. “It’s not too bad, like last year,” Castro said. “You don’t want to take a chance, so you take a couple of days. It was grabby at the end. Last year, I couldn’t walk. Right now, I’m walking normal.” Third baseman Mike Olt is expected to see his first action in the field at first base on Monday against Milwaukee. He had only appeared as a designated hitter because of a “dead arm period.” Hot start Moustakas, a former No. 2 overall draft pick who hasn’t put it all together in the majors yet, is off to a great start this spring after spending time in Venezuela. The 25-year-old third baseman is 5-for-9 with three runs and six RBIs through four games after going 2-for-3 against the Cubs. “We are trying to work on things right now,” Moustakas said. “Results are nice, but we are trying to work on driving the ball, getting good pitches to hit and when you get to two strikes, battle.”

Moustakas, Royals edge Cubs, 5-3 Mesa, Ariz. (ap) — Mike Moustakas homered twice, Eric Hosmer added three hits and the Kansas City Royals beat the Chicago Cubs 5-3 on Sunday. Cubs shortstop Starlin Castro left after the first inning with a slight strain of his right hamstring. He hurt himself trying to steal a base after he was hit by a pitch. Moustakas hit a drive off Cubs starter Edwin Jackson leading off the second inning and a two-run shot off Carlos Villanueva in the third. “It’s about seeing as many pitches as you can,” Moustakas said. “I’ve been seeing the ball pretty good as of late and I am trying to keep seeing the pitches, working the at-bats and fighting with two strikes.” Hosmer doubled twice, and Lorenzo Cain had two hits for the Royals. Kansas City starter Wade Davis gave up one hit in two scoreless innings. Javier Baez and Justin Ruggiano each had two hits for Chicago.

RUSSELL HENLEY HITS OFF THE EIGHTH FAIRWAY during the final round of the Honda Classic golf tournament on Sunday in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla.

Henley wins Honda; ailing Woods withdraws Palm Beach Gardens, Fla. — Russell Henley made good on his second chance at the 18th hole Sunday and won the Honda Classic after a wild day that began with Tiger Woods walking off the course due to a back injury and ended with a four-man playoff. The closing hour at PGA National was a series of blunders by the contenders — and even the winner. Henley was in a three-way tie for the lead, 40 yards left of the flag on the par-5 18th in regulation, when he chunked a chip so badly that it only got halfway to the hole. He had to two-putt for par, and then watched as Rory McIlroy nearly made a great escape from an otherwise bad afternoon. McIlroy, who lost a two-shot lead, hit a 5-wood from 236 yards to just inside 12 feet for an eagle and the win. It narrowly slid by on the right. In the playoff, Henley was the only player to reach the 549-yard hole in two, and he twoputted from about 40 feet for birdie. Ryan Palmer missed a 10-foot birdie putt. McIlroy went from the back bunker to the front collar and had to scramble for par, and Russell Knox laid up and missed a 20-foot birdie attempt. “This isn’t going to sink in for a while,” Henley said. Thousands of fans who spent hours in the warmth and wind of south Florida surely felt the same way. Woods abruptly quit after 13 holes and was driven straight to his car. He later said he had lower back pain and spasms, and was unsure if he could play at Doral next week. And then came all the mistakes by four guys trying to win. Palmer missed a 5-foot par in regulation that would have won it. He closed with a 69, the only player in the last six groups to break par. Knox needed a birdie on the last hole, but he went from the fairway bunker to the rough, well over the green and then calmly made a par putt just inside 10 feet for a 71 to get in the playoff. They all finished at 8-under 272.

Royals’ Mota retires Surprise, Ariz. — Reliever Guillermo Mota has announced he is retiring after 14 seasons in the major leagues. Mota was a non-roster invitee to the Kansas City Royals camp and did not pitch last season. The 40-year-old right-hander made 743 career relief appearances with a 3.94 ERA for the Montreal Expos, Los Angeles Dodgers, Florida Marlins, Cleveland Indians, New York Mets, Milwaukee Brewers and San Francisco Giants. He was part of San Francisco’s World Series championship teams in 2010 and 2012. In 2003 and ’04, Mota topped National League relievers in innings pitched.

Willow, Alaska — A New Zealand man was the first musher en route to the town of Nome when the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race began Sunday. Curt Perano and 68 other mushers began the world’s most famous sled-dog race by crossing frozen Willow Lake about 50 miles (80 kilometers) north of Anchorage. It was a staggered start, meaning one musher left every two minutes. The order was drawn at a musher’s banquet Thursday night in Anchorage. The finish line is on Front Street in Nome, which runs parallel to the Bering Sea coast. Standing between the mushers and the finish line are about 1,000 miles of unforgiving Alaska terrain, including two mountain ranges, untamed wilderness, the mighty Yukon River and the wind-whipped Bering Sea coast.

Avondale, Ariz. — Kevin Harvick charged to the front early and dominated the rest of the way Sunday for his second straight Sprint Cup victory at Phoenix International Raceway. Coming off a disappointing finish at the Daytona 500, Harvick had the fastest car in practice and kept it rolling in the race, leading 224 of 312 laps on the odd-shaped mile oval. Harvick won the fall race at PIR for Richard Childress Racing after Carl Edwards ran out of fuel at the white flag. Harvick needed no help Sunday, quickly moving to the front after starting 13th and pulling away on a series of late restarts to win in his second race with StewartHaas Racing. It was Harvick’s fifth Sprint Cup win at PIR, most on the career list. Daytona 500 winner Dale Earnhardt Jr. finished second, pole sitter Brad Keselowski was third and Penske Racing teammate Joey Logano fourth. Jeff Gordon rounded out the top five on a warm and partly cloudy day after downpours wiped out the final 32 laps of Saturday’s Nationwide race, won by Kyle Busch.

Birmingham, Ala. — Auburn coach Gus Malzahn was in his second year leading a high school program when he watched Florida State’s Bobby Bowden turn up the tempo with a quarterback who was on his way to the Heisman Trophy. He figures maybe that Charlie Ward-led offense in 1993 was a precursor to the wave of fast-paced offenses that have helped Malzahn and others win big and even sparked a proposal to change the rules. “I was telling coach on the way over here, I was watching Charlie Ward when they were playing shotgun and they’d go back, and they’d start playing with pace,” Malzahn said Sunday. “I think Coach is one of those guys that kind of started a lot of this wide-open offense, so (Ward) could definitely run our offense.” On Sunday, Malzahn received the Bowden Award named after the former Seminoles coach, a Birmingham native who coached them to the first of his two national titles in 1993. The 5-year-old award is selected by the National Sports Writers and Sports Broadcasters of America and the Over The Mountain Touchdown Club. Former Georgia coach Vince Dooley received the lifetime achievement award.

Self denies Smart’s net talk By Gary Bedore

Oklahoma State sophomore guard Marcus Smart caused quite a stir on Saturday night by saying one of the reasons he played so well against Kansas the second half was his desire to keep the Jayhawks from cutting down the nets in Gallagher-Iba Arena. “Before the game, the coaches showed us a quote of Bill Self saying he was coming here cutting down our nets, and he was gonna win it outright in Stillwater,” Smart said of the Big 12 regularseason title. “We couldn’t let that happen in our house, so I just knew I had to keep pushing until the end,” added Smart, who had 21 points (20 the second half) in OSU’s 72-65 victory. KU coach Self provided the Journal-World a rebuttal to Smart’s accusation on Sunday night. “I heard and saw the postgame interview (with ESPN’s Shannon Spake) after the game,” Self said.


“What is so cool is Justin idolizes and looks up to Niko as a person and how he carries himself and what he does on a daily basis. Niko loves to watch Justin play. Niko wasn’t as naturally gifted athletically and had a knee problem coming into college. He loves that his brother has speed and some athleticism. It’s great to see them interact with each other.” Niko Roberts, who averaged 16 points a game his senior year at St. Anthony’s High in Huntington, N.Y., regularly plays competitive games of one-on-one with Justin as well as Norm, third alltime leading scorer and all-time steals leader at Queens College. “Right now, my dad doesn’t stand a chance. He’ll just try to talk his way into a win,” Niko said. “Me and my brother haven’t played in a while. He’s going to get me soon. In a couple years, it’ll be no contest. He’ll beat me every time. He’s definitely legit.


was working, he made sure, like, ‘Let’s go lift weights. Let’s go run. Let’s go do anything extra, don’t just sit down.’” Whitted, an assistant coach during Haughton’s junior and senior seasons at Du Bois, used his connections to help get his son a spot at Atlanta Sports Academy, a prep school, before he eventually went to GMC. “He made me step up,” Haughton said. “Even in JUCO I called him a couple times about what I

games has played 32, 21, 30 and 29 minutes. “He was really sore today,” Self said Sunday. KU, which now is playing for NCAA Tournament seeding, has two regular-season games left: Wednesday vs. Tech and Saturday at West Virginia. “We haven’t made a decision (about sitting Embiid). We’ll probably make a decision (today) after visiting with doctors,” Self said. Embiid was in obvious discomfort as he left Gallagher-Iba on Saturday night. He shed a few tears as he visited with a parent of a KU player before heading to the team bus.

Kansas baseball routs HBU J-W Staff Reports

Grand Prairie, Texas — Justin Protacio went 4-for-5 to lead Kansas University’s 18-hit effort in a 14-1, run-rule-shortened baseball victory over Houston Baptist on Sunday at QuikTrip Park. Kansas improved to 111, the best start in school history, after the seveninning victory on a 31-degree day. Protacio, the Jayhawks’ leadoff hitter, had three RBIs and scored three runs. Michael Suiter was 2-for-3 with a run and an RBI, Michael Tinsley was 2-for-3 with three RBIs, and Ryan Pidhaichuk was 1-for-1 with a run and two RBIs. Kansas scored at least a run in every inning and put up five runs in each the fourth and sixth frames. Drew Morovick (3-0) picked up the win after allowing just one hit over five scoreless innings. Kansas will host Creighton, weather permitting, at 3 p.m. Tuesday at Hoglund Ballpark.

“I don’t know where Marcus got his information, but it was totally inaccurate. I’ve never said anything about cutting down nets or anything like that. I never said anything about cutting down nets in their building. “Strange ... we’ve won the league 10 years in a row. I don’t know if we’ve even cut down nets at home. I’d never disrespect another program, especially my alma ma-

ter, by doing anything like that. It’s disappointing that was said. Certainly he obviously had some bad information however he received it.” KU still clinched the undisputed league title courtesy of losses by Iowa State and Texas. “Sure it would have been nice to have an ‘inlocker room celebration’ had we won the game.

“I give him pointers all the time. He listens,” Niko added. “He’s really coachable. That’s why he gets better so fast.” Niko, who has scored seven points with seven assists, seven turnovers, seven steals and 15 rebounds in 39 career games at KU, knew coming in that playing time at KU would be difficult to come by. “It’s been an adjustment,” said the 5-foot-11, 175-pounder, who received some NCAA Div. II and III offers out of high school. “Practices have really become my games. In high school, I dreaded practice. Here I love it. Every day I’m getting better against the best players in the country. It’s just fun every day.” It’s also physical every day. “I’m definitely starting to feel a little bit older,” Niko said. “I definitely can feel my body (getting) a little weary. As bad as it is,” he added of the bumps and bruises of major-college ball, “it’s never going to get any better than this.” The communicationstudies major — he’ll work an internship for

adidas in Portland, Ore., this summer and hopes to land a full-time job with the company — said the “best part of my experience by far has been my teammates.” That includes bonding with former roommates Royce Woolridge, Ben McLemore and Landen Lucas. He lives alone off campus his senior year. “Best friend, brother ... I mean, we came here together,” said fellow senior Wesley. “We developed a relationship that will go on for a very long time, for the rest of our lives.” Norm said it has been gratifying to see Niko make so many friends at KU. “It couldn’t have worked out any better,” Norm said of the walkon experience for his son. “He went on a couple (recruiting) visits, then came back to me and his mother and said, ‘I want to go to a big school that has a great basketball team and I can be part of it.’ We explained to him, ‘You might not play much going to a school like that.’ “I was on the phone with coach (Self). He said, ‘What’s Niko going to do (for college)?’ I

said, ‘Coach, I’m not sure.’ Coach said, ‘Why doesn’t he come to school here?’ I reached out to Niko, told him what coach said. Coach talked to him and told him what his responsibilities would be. Nobody pushed him either way. He came to us and said, ‘Dad, I want to go to KU.’” Norm and his wife, Pascale, knew Niko made the right decision the summer before Niko’s freshman season. “The guys were working out one night. He’s playing pickup with Tyshawn (Taylor) and those guys. His mother and I were getting ready to go home (to New York) the next day. He walks over to me, and he sits down next to me. It’s just me and him. He says to me, ‘Thanks, dad. This is awesome. I can’t believe I’m out here with these guys. I really appreciate everything you and mom have done for me.’ It probably was the coolest thing he could ever say to me as a dad,” Norm Roberts said. Niko said it has been a joy getting to be coached by his dad. “We work a lot with each other. It’s always fun, a lot of jawing go-

ing back and forth,” Niko said. “He motivates me in his own way. He makes practice more fun for me. “The most (advice he gives) is be aggressive, especially if I get to play (in game). He tells me, ‘Play like you do in practice and you’ll be fine.’ He helps me a lot.” Self, who held Niko in his arms when he was a baby — Norm has been on Self’s staffs at KU, Illinois, Tulsa and Oral Roberts — said he has enjoyed being Niko’s coach. “He’s improved so much, worked hard in the weight room,” Self said. “His body is strong. His game has improved, and he’s become a terrific practice player. He’s tough and wants to help the team any way he can.” He also wants to support his brother’s Lawrence High team any way possible. “Before he’s done, hopefully. I could see it happening,” Niko said of LHS and Justin winning state. “They’ve got to be a scrappy team because they are so small. If they stay scrappy, they can beat anybody. I can basically give a good scouting report on that entire team. They are doing well.”

needed to do, how I needed to do it. He helped me by just saying, ‘Keyon, you’ve got to make sure you keep working. Don’t forget what you did for this.’” Haughton, who was a guard for GMC but prefers center because he likes the responsibility of calling out the blocking assignments, was a part of an offensive line that led the NJCAA with 289 rushing yards per game last season. GMC had several wins over ranked opponents before losing in the national championship game. Another member of the line, left tackle Devon Williams, has also

signed with KU and will report to campus in the summer. “The O-line was close. We always joked on each other. We always played around,” Haughton said about the 6-foot5, 335-pound Williams. “When me and him actually came on a visit, we both were, like, this is a place for us. We need to come here.” Haughton also spent some time with senior defensive lineman Keon Stowers at GMC. The coaches introduced the two in Haughton’s first week because they share the same name, despite different spelling. Stowers eventually became

Haughton’s host on his official visit to KU, and the two are now roommates. But Stowers has done more than just live with Haughton. He showed him where all of his classrooms are and taught him how to navigate the bus schedule to get around campus. “We actually worked out together before he left (GMC),” Haughton said. “Then when I came here, we actually got a little tight. We know what we both went through. We went through the same thing. The more we talked about it, the closer we got.” Stowers hasn’t been

the only teammate helping Haughton get acclimated to Lawrence. Though Haughton has found KU’s offseason workouts difficult, the rest of his teammates have motivated him to work through it. “These guys are very hungry,” Haughton said.

Monday, March 3, 2014

Dear Annie: My sister complains that our mother (who can be narcissistic and self-centered) has never reached out to her son. “Mitch” is now 25, and Mom has never tried to get to know him. Mom sent my daughter on trips to Europe and would visit us often but did not do the same for Mitch. Mitch is not easy. I used to send him gifts for birthdays and other milestones and never received any response, so I finally stopped. In person, he is monosyllabic and quiet. When he was 2, I remember seeing him bite my sister and throw tantrums. Mitch is very bright. He’s been in college off and on for the past six years, but still has not finished his degree. I am fairly certain that he was into pot through high school and may still be. He has never had a real

job, although he’s worked part-time temp positions. Mitch could use help with tuition and books. When I suggested that he call or email his grandmother occasionally to let her know what’s going on in his life, my sister became angry. She blames Mom for never reaching out to the “child” and claims a normal grandparent would show an interest in her grandson. She insists the onus is on the adult in the relationship. Is there an answer

‘Boys Don’t Cry’ actress stars in thriller Chloe Sevigny (“Boys Don’t Cry,” “Big Love”) often plays characters who are more than they seem and are working some peculiar angle. And the new police drama “Those Who Kill” (9 p.m., A&E) gives her yet another chance. She portrays Catherine Jensen, a recently promoted Pittsburgh homicide detective who shows keen insight and initiative. Her promotion earns Jensen simmering resentment from her fellow officers. She teams up with professor/ forensic psychologist Thomas Schaeffer (James D’Arcy), and together they obtain remarkable results. But both have dark secrets that afford them a special understanding of the criminal mind. Like “The Killing,” this series is based on a Danish television show. Just as “The Wire” familiarized fans with Baltimore’s squalid locales, “Those Who Kill” makes the most of Pittsburgh’s abandoned industrial architecture. Half of the pilot takes place amid the rubble of former factories and steel mills. “Those Who Kill” avoids the near-pornographic sadism of “Hannibal” or the casual depravity of “Criminal Minds.” As professor Schaeffer warns us early on, it is easy to get lost if you spend too much time inside the minds of such sordid characters. It’s best to leave a trail of crumbs, he suggests, to find your way out. Are Jensen and Schaeffer a new version of Hansel and Gretel? Or the witch? So far, that’s not quite clear. And that might tempt viewers to return for more.

Folks hope a three-day jungle adventure will transform their lives on the series “Going Wild” (7 p.m., Nat Geo Wild).

Tonight’s other highlights  Blind auditions continue on “The Voice” (7 p.m., NBC).

The past catches up with Kennex on the season finale of “Almost Human” (7 p.m., Fox).  Ryan’s resume haunts him on “The Following” (8 p.m., Fox).  A virus erases Gabriel’s hard drive on “Intelligence” (9 p.m., CBS).

to this dilemma? — Confused Sister and Aunt Dear Confused: First of all, let’s eliminate what Mitch did when he was 2. It is ridiculous and unforgiving to stigmatize a child as “difficult” because he bit and threw tantrums as a toddler. And yes, your mother should have made an effort to know and love her grandson regardless. That said, however, Mitch is an adult now and is responsible for his own behavior. If he believes his grandmother doesn’t care about him, he’s unlikely to email her. If your sister reinforces the idea that it’s Grandma’s responsibility to initiate contact, Mitch won’t do anything. And if Grandma is narcissistic and self-centered, she may have no interest in Mitch, because it requires too much of her. This kid may not be easy, but he has been rejected


For Monday, March 3, 2014: This year you might not always be comfortable with what happens. Your ego could take a beating. If you are single, use care when dating, as you might be prone to meeting emotionally unavailable people this year. If you are attached, the two of you might not always be on the same emotional frequency. 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)  Don’t be surprised to wake up in a cranky mood. Try not to act on your feelings. Tonight: All’s well that ends well. Taurus (April 20-May 20)  You could be strongwilled about a personal matter and end up bullying everyone into his or her respective corners. Tonight: Someone close to you might not be anxious to talk. Gemini (May 21-June 20)  Zero in on what you want. A partner could become controlling, which might provoke you. Tonight: Get into a lighthearted pastime. Cancer (June 21-July 22)  Pressure seems to build to an unprecedented level. The unexpected could occur. Tonight: In the limelight. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)  You tend to be present in the moment while still gaining an overview of the situation. Tonight:

by members of his family for most of his life. Please be kind. Dear Annie: Our daughter is getting married in the fall, and we are having the wedding and reception in our backyard. How can we ask guests not to use their cellphones or text during the festivities? — Jim Dear Jim: It’s perfectly OK to ask your guests to turn off or mute their cellphones during the ceremony. The minister or best man can make the announcement before the wedding begins. But you will have less luck at the reception. People want to take photos of themselves and their friends and text a play-by-play to those who couldn’t attend. You can ask the guests to put their phones away so they can enjoy the real-time fun, but you cannot force them.

Let your imagination run wild. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)  Deal directly with someone whom you care a lot about. You might want to use creativity. Tonight: Opt for togetherness. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)  You might need to defer to a key person in your life. Tonight: Say “yes” to a suggestion. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)  You have the strength to continue like the Energizer Bunny. Just the same, someone could throw a boomerang in your path. Tonight: As you like it. Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)  You might want to let go of plans and let your spontaneous personality take over. Passion consumes much of your time. Tonight: Kick up your heels.
