U.S. House OKs bill that delays health care fines

Ash Wednesday services

By Peter Hancock

The U.S. House passed a bill Wednesday sponsored by Republican Rep. Lynn Jenkins of Kansas to delay the individual mandate portion of the Affordable Care Act, often Jenkins referred to as Obamacare. The 250-160 vote fell

largely along party lines and represented the 50th time the Republican-controlled House has voted to delay, defund or repeal all or part of President Barack Obama’s signature health care law. The bill is given little chance of passing the Democratic-controlled Senate, however. And even if it does, President Obama has already threatened to veto it.

Kansas GOP backs bill limiting party switches before elections By Scott Rothschild Twitter: @ljwrothschild

The Kansas Republican Party pushed Wednesday for passage of a bill aimed at reducing the number of voters who switch parties before the primary to hurt the GOP. The bill would essentially prevent registered

voters from changing their party affiliation from June 1 through Sept. 1. Currently, voters registered as Republicans, Democrats or Libertarian can change their party affiliation up to 21 days before the August primaries. Unaffiliated voters can declare a party affiliation at any time.

An early-morning traffic stop ended in the arrest of a Lawrence man suspected of multiple crimes, including a pair of felony drug offenses. The suspect, Michael Lee Saghbene, was booked into Douglas County Jail early Wednesday with bond set at $27,000. Kim Murphree, a Lawrence Police Department spokeswoman, said Saghbene, 24, was arrested after being stopped at 1:32 a.m. by a patrol officer in the parking lot of an apartment complex in the 300 block of West 14th Street. Murphree said the officer, shortly after he

exited his vehicle, determined that Saghbene was impaired. After talking to Saghbene, Murphree said, the officer arrested him on suspicion of driving while intoxicated. Upon further investigation, officers found an estimated 123 grams of a green leafy substance consistent with marijuana and drug paraphernalia, Murphree said. In addition to a second-offense driving while intoxicated charge, Saghbene is also suspected of felony cultivation and distribution of a controlled substance and felony possession of drug paraphernalia. Additional charges of not having a drug tax stamp and refusing a breathalyzer test were also added.

The Kansas University Endowment Association will help raise money for furnishings. To make a home for the center, KU Med will renovate a building at 3503 Rainbow Blvd., north of its Kansas City, Kan., campus. Sharon Lynch, a KU professor of neurology, will serve as director.

KATHY REYNOLDS, OF LAWRENCE, STRAIGHTENS THE DRESS ON A DOLL she will be selling this weekend at the Spring Arts & Crafts Fest at the Douglas County Fairgrounds. Reynolds sells items including vintage dolls, handmade soap, birdhouses and homemade jams and pickles.

Topeka — A Kansas House committee is preparing to consider a proposal to phase in sales of strong beer, wine and liquor at grocery and convenience stores. The House Commerce, Labor and Economic Development Committee’s debate Thursday represents a key test for backers of the bill. Committee approval would send it to the House for debate. The measure allows liquor store owners to sell their licenses to other retailers in the same county, starting in July 2015. Kansas currently permits groceries and convenience stores to sell only weak beer. The bill would let them start selling strong beer in July 2017, wine in July 2020 and liquor in July 2024.

equipped with video equipment for help with multimedia projects for classes. They will also house student services such as advising, math and writing tutoring. The buildings will replace the nearly 50-yearold, 10-story McCollum dormitory, set to be demolished upon the completion of the new halls. The buildings will lie on the western edge of Daisy Hill, between Templin Residence Hall and Irving Hill Road. So far they are without names. At Wednesday’s event they were referred to only by temporary names: “North Building,” “South Building,” the “McCollum Hall Replacement” and other placeholders. More specific names are to come this spring, pending approval by the Kansas Board of

Regents. Construction on the halls is set to begin later this month and expected to last through July 2015, with work being done by BA Green Construction Co. of Lawrence and Lenexa-based the Weitz Company. Treanor Architects of Lawrence designed the project. Once the new halls are complete, McCollum Hall will be razed and a parking lot will take its place. The first residents will move in August 2015. Starting this September, students will be able to sign new contracts to live in the halls for the 20152016 school year. The project marks the first time KU has built a new residence hall since Oliver Hall was constructed in 1967. “If I’m going to do something once in 50 years, I’m going to do it well,” Robertson said.

the bill just last week, said it is a response to the Obama administration’s actions to delay mandates that large- and mediumsized employers provide health coverage to their workers. “Aside from the fact that it is fundamentally unfair to give businesses special treatment that is not extended to individuals, American families have also been forced to deal with the botched rollout of and a series of confusing administration delays of the law issued via blog posts,” Jenkins said during debate on the bill.

vote in favor of the bill. Only one Republican voted no. Under current law, starting this year, most individuals are required to have some form of health insurance. Those who don’t face paying a penalty on their income taxes of $95, or 1 percent of their income, whichever is less. That penalty would increase to $325, or 2 percent of income, in 2015; and $695, or 2.5 percent of income, in 2016 and thereafter. Jenkins’ bill would push the penalty schedule back one year, meaning people who do not get coverage would face no penalty this year. The non-partisan Congressional Budget Office estimates that would result in 4 million fewer people gaining health coverage over the next three years. But it would save the fed-

eral government about $10 billion over five years, mainly because the government would not have to pay for the subsidies of people who will decide not to get insurance. The individual mandate is considered critical to the success of the overall program because enrolling young, healthy, low-risk individuals — those who are now the least likely to get coverage on their own — helps lower the cost of insuring the elderly, disabled and people with pre-existing conditions. “Well, here they go again,” said Rep. Sander Levin, D-Mich., who called the bill a “House Republican goose egg for millions of Americans.” Jenkins countered that the Affordable Care Act has already been hampered by the troubled roll-out of healthcare.

gov, the website of the federal health insurance exchange where people are supposed to be able to enroll in subsidized health coverage. “In my state, Kansas, the latest consensus information estimates that 356,000 folks are uninsured,” Jenkins said. “At the last count, only 22,000 of those individuals have enrolled on” Many of those uninsured were supposed to gain coverage through an expansion of Medicaid. But Kansas so far has chosen not to offer expanded Medicaid coverage because the U.S. Supreme Court ruled last year that states cannot be compelled to take part in that portion of the health care law.

The owners of the Oklahoma City-based arts and crafts chain and several other companies have said contraception coverage runs afoul of their religious beliefs. State Sen. Laura Kelly, D-Topeka, asked Chanay how Kansas could side with Hobby Lobby, since the company buys most of its products from China, where abortions are considered an acceptable way of enforcing the country’s population limits. “We have a company that doesn’t want to provide birth control to their insured employees but has no trouble cutting deals with a country that forces abortions. How can we ignore that?” Kelly said. Chanay said the attorney general’s office joined the lawsuit because of the legal questions involved, and wasn’t concerned about Hobby Lobby’s business practices. A spokesperson for

Hobby Lobby did not return phone calls seeking comment. Committee Chairwoman Mary Pilcher-Cook, R-Shawnee, who opposes abortion, said Kelly’s arguments were “a red herring.” Pilcher-Cook also dismissed Haley’s absence from the meeting, saying that he wants a hearing on his bill to allow medical marijuana. PilcherCook has refused to have a hearing on the measure this year, saying there are more pressing issues. Haley argued his medical marijuana bill is one of several important issues that have been allowed to languish in committee while PilcherCook has had committee meetings to demonstrate sonograms and a hearing on a bill that would have banned surrogate pregnancies in Kansas.

Topeka — The Kansas Coalition Against the Death Penalty is campaigning against legislation limiting the time allowed for appeals of capital punishment convictions. The state Senate approved a bill last month setting a limit of three years and six months for the Kansas Supreme Court to hear and decide an appeal of a death penalty conviction. There is currently no time limit. Critics of the bill contend the change would increase the chance of an innocent person being executed. Supporters say death penalty appeals take too long for the state to complete under the current structure. Kansas reinstated the death penalty in 1994 but — Statehouse reporter Scott Rothschild has not carried out any can be reached at 785-423-0668 or at executions.

ROCK BAND DR. DOG will be performing at 8 p.m. Monday at Liberty Hall, 644 Massachusetts St.


Dr. Dog takes bare-bones approach to building a new record, studio and home By Nadia Imafidon


hen Dr. Dog came together to start assembling the group’s seventh LP “B-Room,” the first six weeks of the project consisted of manual labor, and were not in any way musical. Investing their entire recording budget in construction materials, the six bandmates recruited some carpentry-experienced friends to help convert an old silversmith mill into their new studio space and 5,000-square-foot home. “I think for like four years

Tickets are $21.50 in advance and $24 at the door. they were operating in it doing stuff like silver plating and like revitalizing old silverware,” says co-founder and guitarist Scott McMicken. “They moved out and we scooped the place up pretty much immediately.” McMicken says the large industrial space had a beauti-

ful feel to it, so much so they didn’t want to alter too much of its aesthetic: rollerskating-rink-sized hardwood floors, large windows, high ceilings, giant ceiling fans. Everyone pitching in, they built small rooms to line the edges of the perimeter for bedrooms, storage spaces, a shower, bathroom, kitchen, a hangout spot with couches and a piano, and the B-Room, where band members could work out album ideas while others were elsewhere in this gargantuan building. Located five miles outside of West Philadelphia down a winding road, this new space

is an improvement over their previous similar, but smaller, warehouse-like studio. Investing their time (and money) into the construction project wasn’t just about this record, McMicken says, but many more to come. “It was a bigger-picture decision. It was our new home, a place we knew we were setting up and would be using for years,” McMicken says. “We had all these goals, and they obviously had to do with the record we were making, but it was also a longer view.” Much like the homemade studio, their latest record

best reflected the strengths of each member having built each song from scratch. Known for their lo-fi rootsrock funk-infused psychedelic music presented on albums in an overdubbed fashion, frontmen McMicken and Toby Leaman (who have known each other since eighth grade) took a more organic approach to “B-Room.” Instead of demoing their ideas before revealing more finalized tracks to the other four members, the two kept the songs bare-bones. “This time Toby and I were Please see DOG, page 7A


Lawrence native returns from New York for Arts Center’s ‘Pinocchio’

By John R. Phythyon Jr. Special to the Journal-World

Spencer Lott has a long history at the Lawrence Arts Center. “I took my first acting class from Ric Averill when I was in second grade,” he says with a broad enthusiastic smile on his face. The Lawrence native and Kansas University graduate is now a teaching artist at New York’s New Victory Theater, but he’s back in town for the Arts Center’s new production of “Pinocchio.” He talks fast and energetically about the production, and you get the sense it’s not due to the large coffee he sips between answers. Lott is a puppeteer by trade, and he’s clearly looking forward to operating the famous wooden boy who just wants to be real. “The puppet is 3 feet tall,” he says. “It’s a rod puppet made to look like wood. I

operate the head, and we’ve got a very talented young lady, Mary Kate Schultz, handling the feet.” Schultz is a local fourth-grader, who has been involved in numerous past productions at the Arts Center, including its Summer Youth Theater program. This is Lott’s second “reappearance” at the Arts Center. “I did ‘Escape from the Labyrinth’ last year,” he says of the show that featured a giant Minotaur

“It’s a little darker than the Disney version,” he says, still smiling. “It’s episodic — a coming-ofage story — and it’s quite funny.” Averill, who plays Pinocchio’s father, Gepetto,

and is directing the show, has gone for a gypsy camp feel to the set and the telling. “The set has rocks and overturned carts,” Lott says, his eyes lighting up as he envisions the finished

production. “The whole idea is this old man, whom we find out is Gepetto, is sort of telling this story for everyone to hear. It’s simple, poor man’s theater in a gypsy style.” “Pinocchio” features an enormous cast to tell the story. “We’ve got about 65 people,” Lott says. “It’s a very community, familial feel.” In fact, there are several entire family units in the cast and crew. The Arts Center has also included its professional dance troupe in the production, and it features live music by local band Drakkar Sauna. “There’s really something for everyone,” Lott says. “The episodic nature lends itself to make it easy for younger audiences to pick up. The content — the coming-ofage nature of the story — appeals to a slightly older audience. And there’s plenty for the adults to laugh and groan at.”

Marble Crazy back for 15th year of madness By Caroline Boyer

Bonner Springs — Two purple jellyfish swim over a field of pink jewel anemone, blue tube sponges, a cluster of East Pacific pink coral and a stand of purple-tipped anemone. This is not the description of a National Geographic video of a coral reef; rather, it’s an intricate glass sculpture by artist Cathy RichardBreslow son, all encased within a 3.25-inchwide globe. T h e 15th year of Marble C r a z y at Moon Marble Richardson Co. in Bonner Springs will showcase 20 glass artists, like Richardson, from across the country who create more than your typical marbles. Richardson is the featured artist at this year’s glass art spectacular Friday and Saturday. Her work even inspired this year’s event poster and T-shirt, which feature Moon Marble’s iconic “moon man” going snorkeling. Bruce Breslow is known for doing some wacky things to promote the Moon Marble Co. and its annual Marble Crazy event in Bonner Springs. Bruce Breslow, co-owner of Moon Marble, said many of the artists attending Marble Crazy, as well as several local glass art collectors, are clamoring to get into Richardson’s invitation-only demonstration today prior to the public events. “I’ve had a lot of artists from around the country calling, wanting to see her doing her work, and they’re bummed if they can’t make it (to Marble Crazy),” Breslow said. Though Breslow and Richardson have been ac-

THIS MARBLE PIECE BY CATHY RICHARDSON is called the “Many Fish Reef” and is about 2.5 inches in diameter. It was made by “drawing” on multiple layers of hot glass from a furnace with molten colored glass rods.

IF YOU GO What: Marble Crazy Where: Moon Marble Co., 600 E. Front St., Bonner Springs When: Noon to 9 p.m. Friday, with artist demonstrations until 8 p.m., and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, with artist demonstrations until 4 p.m. Bonus: The Kansas City Marble Collectors Club will host a third day of marble activity 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday at the Overland Park Holiday Inn.

quainted for years, it will be Richardson’s first Marble Crazy appearance. Richardson, a Minnesota-based artist, started out as a geologist, earning a doctorate from Harvard in 1977. She turned to glass art in the 1980s, beginning with stained glass and then lampwork — building sculptures with glass rods over an open flame — in the 1990s. She also has experience with blown glass and furnace work — creating sculptures from

molten glass heated in a furnace — and in the last decade, she has perfected a technique of vacuumencasing her three-dimensional sculptures in clear glass. “My pieces are challenging because I do build them up fairly tall, which makes them difficult to encase,” she said. “Some of my sculptures or setups can be a couple of inches tall, rather than being fairly flat, more typical of a paper weight.” While she also creates floral scenes and some desert scenes, Richardson traces her fascination with underwater scenes to an experience snorkeling along the Great Barrier Reef. She said what she saw has inspired her artwork ever since. “I’m drawn to sea images because there’s such a huge variety between the colors, textures and light,” she said. Her son, a glass artist in his own right who focuses on floral pieces, will join her for Thursday’s private event before Marble Crazy. They only occasionally have been able to do collaborative pieces, so Richardson said she was excited to work with him. “In the end, the customer gets to have a little bit of both worlds,” she said.

TOWER OF BEER Good to the last drop. So good, in fact, that the Yacht Club had to cut the previously 120-ounce beer dispenser in half because they had too many customers commit to a tower per person (can’t imagine who would do that). Arriving with a couple of frosted glasses, the tower of beer is meant to serve more than one. Don’t feel like you have to impress anyone with tower races, which frequently happen (seriously, can’t imagine who would do that either). Kick back with your closest friends after a rough Monday and enjoy an entire 60-ounce tower of your choice of beer. If you’re constantly thinking, “I wish I had even more Boulevard Wheat,” this could probably quench your thirst. Maybe. In the past, they’ve had customers so enthralled with the contraption that they had


very keen on not prerecording our songs so they could hear them as folk songs,” McMicken says. “We just wanted to keep the potential of the songs much more open to the ideas that other band members were likely to have.” The group’s 10 years together have naturally progressed in the direction of a much larger degree of collaboration from all of the bandmates and a stronger foundation. Because of their closeness, they don’t have to be precious about their feelings, McMicken says. Even if there is an argument, it’s forgotten almost immediately after; everyone feels free being themselves. Leaman and McMicken continue to act as the primary songwriters, but the level of trust among one another has evolved considerably.

“No one wants to make anything at all if not everyone is satisfied with it. We made a lot of songs ... And we wound up whittling it down to the ones that everyone was happy with. We roll like that with everything.” — Dr. Dog guitarist Scott McMicken

“I know from personal experience I really do value to a great deal what everyone has to say or how everyone feels about stuff,” he says. “So much that if I bring in a song that I’m actually not that excited about and everyone else is very excited about it, low and behold, I magically start loving that song. “No one wants to make anything at all if not everyone is satisfied with it,” he says. “We made a lot of songs, at least two records’ worth of material when we did this.

They have never done well with record sales, but it’s never been an expectation.

County negotiates contract with finance software vendor By Elliot Hughes

A steering committee tasked with finding and implementing a new system of software for the county government’s finances — something expected to cost about $1 million COUNTY COMMISSION — has entered contract negotiations with a vendor. The committee updated the Douglas County Commission

on its progress at the commission’s weekly meeting Wednesday. Marni Penrod, chief deputy county clerk, said the steering committee has entered talks with SunGard for a new finance system that would help streamline the county’s financial system. The current finance system was implemented in 1999, according to documents submitted to the county by Penrod. The price tag hasn’t been settled, but Douglas County administrator Craig Weinaug

said it would probably cost $1 million to $1.4 million. He said the county prepared for the costs by setting aside funds during the last several years. The steering committee expects to bring a final contract to the County Commission by March 26. In other business, the County Commission approved the solicitation of bids to replace ceiling grids and tiles in the Judicial Law Enforcement Center, a project anticipated to cost more than $75,000.

Loss of united voice regrettable


River resource Contaminated river water in other states offers a reminder of how important it is to Lawrence and its municipal water supply to protect the Kansas River.


ecent events that contaminated rivers that supply drinking water to communities in West Virginia and North Carolina should serve as a warning to all communities who, like Lawrence, depend on rivers for at least part of their municipal water supplies. A federal grand jury investigation has been launched into the West Virginia chemical spill that left about 300,000 residents of Charleston, W.Va., unable to use that city’s water in January. The source of the chemical spill in West Virginia was a leaking storage tank that contained chemical foam used to wash coal. In North Carolina, coal ash sludge poured out of a broken pipe into the Dan River for nearly a week Although we often in early Februtake it for granted, ary before the flow could be water is our most Sevprecious resource, stopped. eral communiand will become ties in North even more precious Carolina and neighboring in the future. We Virginia draw need to protect it. drinking water from the Dan River, but despite tests showing higher levels of harmful chemicals such as arsenic in the river, officials have maintained that the water supply still is safe. The coal ash that leaked into the Dan River was the material that remained after coal was burned to generate electricity at the retired power plant. That may get some additional attention from residents of Lawrence, which has a coal-fired power plant just upriver from its Kansas River water treatment facility. There’s no particular reason to think the Kansas River, which represents about half of Lawrence’s water treatment capacity, faces a special threat, but the people who lived along the rivers in West Virginia and North Carolina probably thought the same thing. The fact is, the Kansas River, like many rivers across the country, is under constant pressure. There are two other coal-fired power plants upstream from Lawrence on the river as well as dozens of wastewater treatment plants in the broader Kansas River watershed. Add to that surface runoff all along the route: runoff from communities and agricultural areas that carries everything from pet waste to herbicides and pesticides into the river. As population increases, various pollutants from runoff also increase. How much can one river take? Although we often take it for granted, water is our most precious resource, and will become even more precious in the future. We need to protect it.

Washington — As the Ukraine crisis deepened, Sen. John McCain responded by criticizing President Obama’s “feckless” foreign policy, while Sen. Lindsey Graham called Obama “a weak and indecisive president [who] invites aggression.” These sharp comments brought to mind a different time and crisis — and a different tone in foreign policy

David Ignatius

What does Gates think about the Ukraine crisis? Distilled to its essence, his message would be the same as Jackson’s: Cool it, especially when it comes to public comments.”

debates. This prompted me to call another prominent Republican who takes a quite different view. I’ll get to that in a moment, but first, a brief historical digression. The year was 1980. The Iranian revolution had toppled the shah’s regime, the Soviet Union had just invaded Afghanistan and the United States’ president, Jimmy Carter, was widely perceived as a weak leader. Looking for a sharp-edged evaluation of the situation, I decided to interview Sen. Henry M. “Scoop” Jackson, a leading hawk. What Jackson, D-Wash., said was surprising, even at a distance of nearly 35 years. Rather than demanding tougher statements or more saber-rattling, he said he worried about “overreaction” to events: “We appear to be going from one crisis to another,” with Washington dispensing “red-hot rhetoric

at least once a week about the dire consequences of this or that or something else.” “We need to be prudent,” said Jackson, who was perhaps the most prominent Cold Warrior of his day. “There is a need for the U.S. to make careful decisions, stand by those decisions, and avoid sending false or conflicting signals” to U.S. allies or the Russians. Jackson’s message, in essence, was “cool it.” The Wall Street Journal, for which I covered the Senate at the time, published the interview on its editorial page under the headline “The World According to Scoop.” Times are different now, certainly on Capitol Hill. But Jackson’s theme is as relevant as ever. Seeking the kind of perspective that Jackson offered back in 1980, I spoke Tuesday with one of America’s longest-serving national security veterans, former Defense Secretary Bob Gates. In addition to having run the Pentagon under Republican and Democratic administrations, Gates worked at the CIA for 26 years and was one of its leading Soviet analysts. He wrote his doctoral dissertation on Kremlin decision-making. What does Gates think about the Ukraine crisis?

Distilled to its essence, his message would be the same as Jackson’s: Cool it, especially when it comes to public comments. “I think considerable care needs to be taken in terms of what is said, so that the rhetoric doesn’t threaten what policy can’t deliver,” Gates explained in a telephone interview. Russian President Vladimir Putin “holds most of the high cards” in Crimea and Ukraine as a whole. U.S. policy should work to reinforce the security of neighboring states without fomenting a deeper crisis in which Putin will have the advantage. Specifically, said Gates, the U.S. should help NATO allies such as Poland and the Baltic states enhance their readiness to resist any future Russian moves. The U.S. could encourage a rotation of NATO aircraft to beef up defenses on Russia’s border, for example. That’s the kind of power play that can check Putin, because it is realistic and sustainable. Gates said that Obama is correct to avoid loose talk about military options. “I’d even be cautious about sending warships into the Black Sea,” Gates explained. “It’s a threatening gesture, but if you’re not prepared to


Patent policy To the editor: I think it would be prudent to grant professors rights to patents they develop while temporarily off the KU payroll. This perk would help KU compete for top professors against universities not saddled with anti-university forces in the Statehouse. Granted, patent revenues might be lost to KU, though I think the amounts have been exaggerated. Also, it is difficult to establish exactly when a given patent idea was actually developed, but manageable record keeping can support reasonable compromises. Nevertheless, I think most of the AAUP’s arguments for the same policy are without merit (Feb. 28 Journal-World). 1. “Ethics.” There is no ethical obligation to allow outside collaboration with profit-making companies. Instead, these collaborations constitute potential conflicts of interest that need to be carefully regulated. 2. “Fairness.” Patent law has never had fairness as a goal. Patents are unfair temporary monopolies granted by government to encourage research and development. Patent rules are simply prudential decisions. 3. “Incentives.” Professors have institutional incentives to do research even in the absence of patent rights. They are hired for that exact purpose. Moreover, commercial incentives may interfere with the pres-

tige incentives that drive good science. 4. “Academic freedom.” Academic freedom refers to freedom of speech, not freedom of commerce. Its purpose is to support the wide dissemination of knowledge, not profit. The idea that universities should support commercial development is relatively recent, not universally accepted, and in potential conflict with fundamental goals of education and dissemination. Each university needs to find its own way in this complex landscape. David Burress, Lawrence

Age and work To the editor: Since Mr. Simons seems concerned about KU Chancellor Bernadette GrayLittle’s age and the length of her tenure as chancellor, I was just wondering: How old is he and how long does he plan to write Saturday columns? Susan Twombly, Lawrence

Real fossils To the editor: After reading the Feb. 28 Journal-World, I was glad to see that the Kansas Legislature has finally accomplished something concrete this session. Specifically, I refer to the designation of a state marine fossil (the Tylosaurus) and a

do something about it, it’s an empty gesture.” I asked Gates what he thought about the criticism of Obama by McCain and Graham. “They’re egging him on” to take actions that may not be effective, Gates warned. He said he “discounted” their deeper argument that Obama had invited the Ukraine crisis by not taking a firmer stand on Syria or other foreign policy issues. Even if Obama had bombed Syria or kept troops in Iraq or otherwise shown a tougher face, “he still would have the same options in Ukraine. Putin would have the same high cards.” Gates, a Republican himself, urged the GOP senators to “tone down” their criticism and “try to be supportive of the president rather than natter at the president.” Gates can be an emotional person when he talks about national security issues, as any reader of his recent memoir, “Duty,” can see. And he showed some of that emotion when he said, near the end of our conversation: “It seems to me that trying to speak with one voice — one American voice — seems to have become a quaint thing of the past. I regret that enormously.” — David Ignatius is a columnist for Washington Post Writers Group.

OLD HOME TOWN state flying fossil (the Pteranodon). However, the lack of a state terrestrial fossil seems to me to be a striking omission. Upon reflection, I think a elegant solution has presented itself: Simply name the representatives who proposed the now-infamous House Bill 2453. By exposing the state to nationwide ridicule by introducing the gay discrimination bill, in my humble opinion these individuals have richly earned the honor of being so designated. Jeff Southard, Lawrence

Think about it To the editor: In the early 1950s I attended a religious high school in Virginia. It was segregated (white). Most of my classmates held a deep-seated belief that God had ordained the separation of the races. Attention, Kansas lawmakers: If you pass HB2453, you may find you have more than you intended. Peter Carleton, Lawrence

Several Douglas County department heads today appealed years to county comago missioners to IN 1989 change the existing residency requirement for county employees. They said the rule, which required an employee to be a Douglas County resident within nine months after taking a job with the county, limited the pool of applicants and resulted in worker shortages.


The heads of Kansas University and Kansas State released a years joint statement ago this week to their IN 1974 basketball fans asking them to “exercise sportsmanlike conduct” at a critical Big Eight Conference game coming up at Allen Fieldhouse. Among other things, they requested fans to root for their own team, not boo opponents or officials; keep silent during free throw attempts; be courteous and good sports; and “remember, it’s a game with a respected opponent, not a fight with a bitter enemy.”


From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for March 6, 1914: years “The Journalago World contained IN 1914 an unfortunate error last night. It stated that John Emmett was dead. Now Mr. Emmett very seriously objects to this and it is a matter in which he ought to have his own way. “ — Compiled by Sarah St. John

Albany, N.Y. — Under pressure from gun control advocates, Facebook agreed Wednesday to delete posts from users seeking to buy or sell weapons illegally or without a background check. A similar policy will be applied to Instagram, the company’s photo-sharing network, Facebook said. The measures will be put into effect over the next few weeks at the world’s largest social networking site, with 1.3 billion active users. “We will remove reported posts that explicitly indicate a specific attempt to evade, or help others evade, the law,” the company said in a statement. The move reflects growing alarm that the Internet is being used to sell banned weapons, evade restrictions on interstate sales, and put guns in the hands of convicted felons, domestic abusers, the mentally ill or others barred under federal law from obtaining firearms. Gun control advocates say Facebook has become a significant marketplace, with thousands of firearmsrelated posts. Google Plus and Craigslist already prohibit all gun sales, legal or illegal.

Essay-optional SAT and officials accused Iran of orchestrating the delivto roll out in 2016 ery in an elaborate 5,000Washington — Essay optional. No penalties for wrong answers. The SAT college entrance exam is undergoing sweeping revisions. College Board officials said Wednesday the update — the first since 2005 — is needed to make the exam more representative of what students study in high school and the skills they need to succeed in college and afterward. The test should offer “worthy challenges, not artificial obstacles,” said College Board President David Coleman at an event in Austin, Texas. The new exam will be rolled out in 2016, so this year’s ninth graders will be the first to take it, in their junior year. The new SAT will continue to test reading, writing and math skills, with an emphasis on analysis. Scoring will return to a 1,600-point scale last used in 2004, with a separate score for the optional essay. For the first time, students will have the option of taking the test on computers.

Jerusalem — Israeli naval forces on Wednesday seized a ship laden with rockets allegedly bound for militants in the Gaza Strip,

mile journey that included covert stops across the region. The Syrian-made M-302 rockets would have put Israel’s biggest cities well within range of Gaza, where militants already possess thousands of less powerful rockets. During eight days of fighting in 2012, armed groups fired 1,500 rockets into Israel, including several that reached the outskirts of Jerusalem and Tel Aviv. The naval raid, which took place in the Red Sea hundreds of miles from Israel, came as Iran showed off powerful new ballistic missiles equipped with multiple warheads. The arms bust drew renewed Israeli calls for world powers to toughen their stand in negotiations over the Iranian nuclear program. Israel believes that Iran is trying to build a nuclear weapon, a charge Iran denies. Israel says a nuclear-armed Iran would pose a threat to the existence of the Jewish state, citing Iranian calls for Israel’s destruction, its development of long-range missiles and its support for hostile militant groups.

general election, and they would much rather have a moderate Republican with views aligned more towards those the Democrat Party,” he said. But state Sen. Kay Wolf, R-Prairie Village, said she had not heard of any widespread voter registration switching. Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach supports the bill, saying it would reduce the administrative burden on county election officers who must maintain records of the registration changes. But the Mainstream Coalition, a nonpartisan

advocacy group that supports separation of church and state and increased funding of public schools, opposed the measure, saying it would restrict the ability of voters to affiliate with the party of their choice. Mark Dugan, a member of the coalition, said many voters simply want to vote for the best candidate, regardless of political party. “For these conscientious voters, any restriction on the ability to choose party affiliation is a restriction on the ability to choose their leaders,” he said.

Asked by AP if he was afraid that Russia might send troops to occupy other Russian-speaking areas of Ukraine, Yatsenyuk said: “Let me put it bluntly: Yes, it’s still a concern and Russia is to realize its responsibility and Russia is to stick to its international obligation to stop the invasion.”

Black goes out ‘with a bang’ on Senior Night By Gary Bedore

Tarik Black’s Senior Night at Kansas University truly couldn’t have been scripted any better — or gone any better. Black, a 6-foot-9,

260-pound transfer from Memphis, went a perfect 9-for-9 from the field and finished with a KU careerhigh 19 points in the Jayhawks’ 82-57 annihilation of Texas Tech in Allen Fieldhouse. “Tonight ... to want any-

thing more would be ungrateful,” said Black, who gave an 11-minute speech after the game while wearing a “10 straight” Big 12 title T-shirt. “The way the night ended ... we won by almost 30. I had a great game. The team had a great game. It

Free State girls rough up Aces By Bobby Nightengale

If any of Free State High’s girls basketball players were nervous for the playoffs, they didn’t show it. The Firebirds jumped to a 12-point lead in the first quarter Wednesday and never looked back in a 5023 rout over Wichita East in the first round of Class 6A sub-state at FSHS. Senior Scout Wiebe scored seven consecutive points over a three-minute

stretch at the end of a 12-0 run in the second quarter. Freshman Madison Piper started the run with a jumper before senior Millie Shade converted a layup while drawing the foul and making the free throw. Junior Adriana Jadlow added a bucket right before the halftime buzzer, giving Free John Young/Journal-World Photo State a 32-14 lead.

Slow start dooms LHS girls, 51-34 By Mack McClure Special to the Journal-World

Olathe — It makes for a difficult task when a team goes scoreless in the opening quarter, especially when it is going up against the No. 10-ranked team in the state. Such was the plight Lawrence High’s girls encountered in taking on host Olathe East in the opening round of sub-state play on Wednesday night. Despite their drought, the Lions closed the gap to

seven points at halftime, but they went dormant again in the third quarter, and OEast pulled away for a 51-34 victory. “We didn’t do ourselves any favors at all in that first quarter (trailing 9-0),” said LHS coach Nick Wood of his team, which closed the season with a 6-15 record. “Defensively we were OK, but offensively we struggled mightily to get much done. We have to be committed Please see LIONS, page 3B

Free State seeking repeat By Bobby Nightengale

Free State High’s boys basketball team knows what it’s like to play the underdog role. The Firebirds were the seventh seed in last year’s sub-state bracket before winning two road games on their way to the state tournament. FSHS (11-9) will open sub-state play seeded sixth against third-seeded Derby (15-5, ranked No. 10 in Class 6A by the Kansas Basketball Coaches Association) at 7 p.m. today at Derby High and is hoping for a repeat performance from a year ago. “It’s a tough draw, but there aren’t any slouch teams in Class 6A basketball,” Firebirds coach Chuck Law said. “You’re going to have to beat two good teams regardless of

who you are to get a state Who: Free b e r t h . State at We know Derby what’s beWhen: 7 tofore us. night, Derby We know w e ’ v e it Who: done Gardner- before.” F r e e Edgerton at State reLawrence High. t u r n e d s e v e n When: 7 to- s e n i o r s night, LHS from last season’s state tournament team, and that experience has helped them stay relaxed at practice this week. “We have a lot of drive to us, especially after last year,” senior Innocent Anavberokhai said. “We realized we can do anything that we set our minds to.” The last time the Fire-


birds traveled to the western part of the state, they won all three games in the McPherson Invitational in mid-January. Derby lost in the semifinals to Shawnee Mission East and took fourth place in the tournament. “I’d like to think we have a pretty good vibe going in that direction,” Law said. “(Games are played) a little bit different out there than how it’s played (here). It’s a little more up-tempo. How it’s officiated is a little bit different. I think our guys are ready to go out there and try to repeat what we did last year.”

LHS hosts Gardner Lawrence High’s boys basketball players know how successful they were in the regular season. They also realize none of it that matters now.

“We have to stay focused, and our guys do have a maturity about them going into this year,” LHS coach Mike Lewis said. “They understand what it takes to play well at this time of the year.” The Lions (16-4, ranked No. 5) will play host to Gardner-Edgerton (1010) at 7 p.m. today. After losing in the final home game of the regular season, it’s a welcomed relief for the seniors to play another game at LHS, and they want to give their home crowd a better showing. “After we lost to Shawnee Mission East on Senior Night, it’s nice that we were able to get a home game as our first game,” senior Connor Henrichs said. “That’ll be good.”

Post player Lauren Kirk led the Hawks with 12 points, and nine Hawks scored. LHS was led by point guard Marissa Pope, who scored 11 of her game-high 17 points after intermission. Jolona Shield, a 5-foot-7 junior wing, had a trio of three-point hits in the second quarter for all of her nine points. “Jolona came out in the second quarter and gave us a huge lift,” Wood said, “because we weren’t getting anything done inside. “They were double-

KANSAS GUARD NIKO ROBERTS IS FOULED on his way to the bucket by Texas Tech guard Robert Foster.

‘Same thing’ fails Raiders By Matt Tait

Three weeks ago in Lubbock, Texas, coach Tubby Smith’s Texas Tech basketball team came within a couple of seconds of knocking off Kansas University. With that gut-wrenching, one-point home loss still fresh in their minds, the Red Raiders took the floor at Allen Fieldhouse on Wednesday night hoping to unleash another inspired effort against No. 8-ranked KU. It never happened. Instead of playing with the Jayhawks (23-7 overall, 14-3 Big 12) wire to wire, the Red Raiders found themselves getting run out of the gym early in an 82-57 loss on KU’s Senior Night. That certainly was not the plan, but thanks to a combination of mental errors by Texas Tech and superior play by Kansas, the Red Raiders (13-17, 5-12) dropped their sixth game in a row and fell for the ninth time in the past 12 outings. “We pretty much tried to do the same thing,” Smith said. “We changed a couple things but not much. And the things we did try to do, they did a good job of denying and making us go to the second or third option, making us put it on the floor.” Texas Tech forward Jaye Crockett (nine points, six rebounds) said his team entered Wednesday with serious confidence from that 6463 home loss to Kansas on Feb. 18. But 10 minutes into the game, that con-

fidence was all but gone, and the Red Raiders were merely trying to survive. Both Crockett and Smith credited KU’s defensive intensity for making life hard, but also admitted that the visitors, for whatever reason, were unable to execute their game plan the way they would have liked. “We just didn’t follow our principles like coach was telling us,” Crockett said. “He was getting on us for not following the rules and playing like he tells us to play. When we don’t listen, we get punished out there on the court, and it ends up bad.” Added Smith: “Certainly we were not much competition for Kansas tonight. We really made a lot of mistakes in the first half ... and then it just went downhill fast.” Kansas forced Texas Tech into nine first-half turnovers and built a 3919 halftime lead despite just leading 18-12 with 9:13 to play in the half. KU senior Tarik Black — one of three KU seniors playing his final game in Allen Fieldhouse — was a big part of KU’s knockout blow, which featured a 17-3 run and five points from Black, who finished with a game-high 19 points on 9-of-9 shooting. “Their inside people were just outstanding,” Smith said of KU’s big men, who combined for 39 points and dominated the paint despite the absence of starting center Joel Embiid, who sat out because of a back injury.

I get steals. Some practices I score. I got a couple more minutes tonight (in replacing the injured Joel Embiid). It was one of those nights it just clicked for me.” Black had a great game with his mom, Judith, in the stands. He scored 17 points against Georgetown when she was in Lawrence right before Christmas. “She’ll definitely be following me the next month. I’m speaking for her without asking her,” Black said with a smile. “It’s what I’m used to. Back home (in Memphis), she’d be in the stands. She’d give me advice. It was the same tonight. When we were walking out, she was talking to me. I’m so confident having her around.” Junior Naadir Tharpe, who had 16 points off 4-of-7 shooting (3-for6 from three), was impressed with the pivot’s play. “Nice, nice,” Tharpe said of Black’s effort. “He went out with a bang. He puts in time every day in practice, even when he’s

He had a great game.” KU coach Bill Self praised Black in introducing him to the 16,300 fans after the contest. “He’s not only a great guy, but did he play well tonight?” Self asked the fans before handing the microphone to Black, who reiterated in his speech how “blessed” he is to be playing one season at KU. “Tarik was good. I thought it was the most aggressive he’s been all year as far as looking to

score,” Self told the media. “Making post moves in there ... they came to trap some. He played very, very well.” Noted Black: “I just can’t believe it’s over, not the season but the regular-season (home) games. I have played four seasons, and it has been a long road leading up to this point, but now it is here. I can’t come back and do Boot Camp. I can’t come back and win conference again. I can’t come back and play those big-time

nonconference games. It hasn’t hit me as much as it will in the near future, but it is just puzzling to me right now because it seems like just yesterday I was beginning my college career.” KU senior Niko Roberts missed a deep shot from the corner in the first three minutes of the game and finished 0-for2 from the field but did can a free throw in the late going to finish with a point in six minutes. Senior Justin Wesley had a block and two fouls while

missing three shots in nine minutes. “It was kind of Tarik’s night, really,” Self said. “He was great, and Niko did a good job and Justin played well when they were in there. There were a lot of good things that happened tonight, but more importantly than anything else, the love affair between our fans and players. That was so evident with everybody sticking around to hear these guys talk afterward. It’s always a special night on Senior Night, but it’s a night these cats will remember the rest of their lives.” The players wore Big 12 title T-shirts and hats after the game, and 10 Big 12 title trophies were on the court as backdrop for the speeches. “No celebration after that game (at Oklahoma State Saturday) because we can’t celebrate after a loss,” Tharpe said. “It was better for it to happen here anyway. To be able to win it here for the seniors, for the fans and everybody to see us wearing our hats, it was great to able to celebrate here at home.” KU will meet West Virginia in the regularseason finale at 11 a.m. Saturday in Morgantown, W.Va.

No need to rush Embiid’s return The mind has to drift somewhere when the game plays out as onesidedly as Wednesday night’s in Allen Fieldhouse, where the scoreboard read Kansas 82, Texas Tech 57 at the end. Mine drifted to Joel Embiid’s return, whether that comes in time for the Big 12 conference tournament or the NCAA Tournament. Tarik Black looked so strong, so focused, so talented in place of Embiid that I couldn’t stop picturing the two centers playing together when KU faces a team armed with long and strong inside players. It has happened here and there, but not very often. Might we see the

centers playing together once Embiid returns? “It could happen,” KU coach Bill Self said. “There’s no question. But if you play them together some, that means (Perry) Ellis and (Jamari) Traylor aren’t in there, too. The majority of the teams we play — Texas Tech is one of the few that plays with two low-post players — most of them play with a stretch four (three-point shooting threat) and a big. So sometimes that makes it a little harder for those guys to guard three-point shooters. But, yeah, they could play together. There’s no doubt about that.” Only junior guard Naadir Tharpe (96 minutes in five games) has logged more NCAA

Tom Keegan

Tournament time than Black (93 minutes in four games), who played well in plenty of big games during his three seasons playing for Memphis, his hometown university. In the regular season a year ago, Black scored 21 points in 22 minutes against a Louisville team that went on to win the national title. If a tourney game with the right matchups presents itself so that it makes

sense for Embiid and Black to play in tandem, it’s nice to have the luxury of turning to such an experienced, talented player. Black’s performance won’t change Self’s approach as to when he decides to bring back Embiid (out because of a strained lower back). Embiid will sit out Saturday at West Virginia, and then Self will go from there. No point in rushing Embiid back into the lineup. Not because Black played so well in his 70th career start. Not because KU would have a decent shot at winning the Big 12 tournament in Kansas City without the freshman 7-footer from Cameroon. The more rest Embiid gets, the bet-

ter. The less he plays in advance of St. Louis, the likely first stop for KU in the NCAA Tournament, the less chance he has of re-injuring his back. Getting Embiid back to close to full strength outweighs concerns about KU’s seed possibly dropping during his absence. It would take discipline to hold back Embiid with the possibility of a sixth No. 1 seed in eight years dangling — a mind-blowing stretch of excellence — but Self clearly will put a premium on getting Embiid ready for the big tourney. “I’m not sure a ‘1’ seed guarantees success,” Self said. “I’m not sure it makes much difference. It’s more about matchups than it is what you’re

seeded. I think from an ego standpoint, everyone wants to be a so-called ‘1.’ It’s nice to be in the conversation, but we won’t be unless we play well moving forward. I just want us to have as much momentum and be as healthy as we can, regardless of what seed line we’re on.” After re-aggravating his back in the loss in Manhattan, Embiid sat out one game and played four more before shutting it down again. Taking two weeks off, knocking off the rust in limited minutes in the NCAA Tournament opening game against a No. 15 or No. 16 seed, and then bringing KU back to full strength in the next round seems like the safest way to go.

KANSAS UNIVERSITY COACH BILL SELF ADDRESSES THE FIELDHOUSE CROWD next to the trophies from the program’s 10 consecutive conference titles following the Jayhawks’ 82-57 victory over Texas Tech on Wednesday at Allen Fieldhouse.


Wiggins recognized, but doesn’t speak By Gary Bedore

Kansas University one-and-done freshman Andrew Wiggins didn’t speak to the fans after his final game in Allen Fieldhouse. But the Canadian sensation was implored to stand up after Wednesday’s 82-57 victory over Texas Tech — before the senior speeches — by coach Bill Self, who had a throng of 16,300 give the freshman guard a standing ovation. Self also had fellow freshmen Joel Embiid and Wayne Selden stand, as well as sophomore Perry Ellis, junior Naadir Tharpe and sophomore Jamari Traylor. Wiggins addressed his emotions in the postgame media session. “I think it is all bundled up right now,” Wiggins said after scoring nine points off 3-of-7 shooting with four boards in 23 minutes. “I am happy, yet sad it is my last game. I have enjoyed my time here. I am thankful for everything. I’ve been blessed with a good team, great coaches and the best fans anyone could ever ask for.” Wiggins’ parents and other family members attended his final KU home game. “I don’t think it has hit me yet,” Wiggins said. “It feels like just yesterday that we had Late Night, so it has definitely not hit me yet.

AFTER KANSAS’ VICTORY, THE JAYHAWKS’ THREE SENIORS — from left, Niko Roberts, Tarik Black and Justin Wesley — took turns at the microphone addressing the fieldhouse faithful. ter, undecided: Embiid said his back (lower-back strain) is feeling better, and he might be able to play in next week’s Big 12 tournament. “I’ve been getting treatment,” he said. “I don’t know, but I think I’m going to be able to play (next week).” He sat on a special tall chair to keep his back straight at Wednesday’s game. Asked about the fans imploring him to stay, Embiid said: “I mean, it was amazing. They have been there from the beginning.” Asked if he’s coming back to KU or going pro, Embiid said: “I am not thinking about that right now. I am thinking about bet- winning the Big 12 cham-

“It has gone too fast,” he added of his one season in college. “I wish I had more time to stay here, do my thing and be with the team, the coaches and all these wonderful fans. The fans are incredibly loyal.” Of Wiggins, Self said: “We talked a lot about it more than likely his last time coming out of the tunnel. If he was nervous or wanted to make a statement, he didn’t act like it.” Self, by the way, said it “is almost a logical nobrainer” for Wiggins to be named Big 12 Player of the Year. Self said he’s the best player on a team that has won the league title by a substantial margin. Embiid



pionship and national championship.” Self cut a joke in addressing the fans about Embiid: “Hey, didn’t you guys think Joel looked great in a suit tonight?” Self asked the fans postgame. Embiid didn’t dress for the game because of his bad back. “But Jo,” Self said to Embiid, “everybody thinks you look much better in a uniform than you do street clothes.” Selden, who had four points and four rebounds in 23 minutes, said “no” when asked if he has decided if he will return next year. He’s also considered a likely firstround NBA prospect.

Tarik Black, Niko Roberts and Justin Wesley were honored with their parents before the game, then spoke to the fans immediately after. Roberts, 5-foot-11, 175 pounds, from Huntington, N.Y., first spoke for five minutes. “Without coach (Bill) Self, I wouldn’t be here. I don’t know where I’d be. I appreciate the opportunity,” Roberts said. “I want to thank my teammates. You are all my brothers,” he told the Jayhawks. Black, a 6-9, 260 from Memphis, spoke second, for 11 minutes. “I remember the first time I came here, somebody said, ‘Are you ready for 16,300 (fans) every night?’ I said, ‘Will it be like that for the exhibition games and ones we’re expected to win?’ He said yes. Now I know what he meant. We have the greatest fans in America,” Black exclaimed. Wesley, 6-9, 220 from Fort Worth, Texas, spoke third, for eight minutes. “Keith (Langford, brother) played a father role for me, but you taught me so much on and off the court as well,” Wesley told Self. To his mom, Charlene, his said: “Love you for putting up with me for 22 years. I was always considered the wild child of the three (boys).”

baugh attended the game as well as the afternoon shootaround. Harbaugh spoke to the team and for good measure hit a halfcourt shot. “You can understand why he’d be fun to play for,” Self said. “He had everybody fired up talking to them (Jayhawks) before the game.” Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy also attended. l

Other seniors: Senior managers Neal Stineman and Corey Wacknov were also honored. l

Recruiting visitor: Myles Turner, a 6-11, 225-pound senior from Trinity High in Euless, Texas, attended on an official recruiting visit. He’s ranked No. 6 nationally by He’s also considering Texas, Arizona, Duke, SMU, Kentucky, Ohio State and Oklahoma State. He will visit Duke this weekend. l

This, that: Tarik Black finished a perfect 9-for-9 from the field, the most efficient performance by a Jayhawk since Mark Randall also made nine field goals without a miss against Rider, Dec. 15, 1990. Prior to that, Danny Manning went 10-of-10 against Oklahoma St., Jan. 18, 1986. ...

Dear Annie: I have been married to a special man for 23 years. We didn’t entirely get along under one roof because he would say critical and hurtful things to me. About 10 years ago, I moved down the road into my own space. Since then, we have gotten along better. The problem is, he has too close of a relationship with his mother. It doesn’t allow the two of us to have any adult space. She insists on calling my husband and talking for several hours every Sunday. I used to talk to her, too, but grew bored with it because I had nothing to say after 20 minutes. He loves small talk. I wanted time for the two of us to have an occasional weekend alone, but he always

Annie’s Mailbox

Marcy Sugar and Kathy Mitchell

had this obligatory hours-long phone call. I decided to tolerate this and took a Sunday job so I’d keep busy. But gradually, the calls encroached on the rest of our week. Annie, I’ve tried everything. I asked him to phone her before I visit him so we could have some time alone. I’ve asked him to let her know we need time to ourselves. But I’m worn out. I’ve stopped asking. My father-in-law was

Three new comedies arrive, DOA How bad is “Sirens” (9 p.m. and 9:30 p.m., USA), a sitcom about Chicago emergency medical technicians? It begins with a scene between Johnny (Michael Mosley) and his pretty ex-girlfriend, Theresa (Jessica McNamee), about online pornography. This theme continues for most of the pilot. A dying man on his way to the hospital begs three knucklehead EMTs to erase his search engine history, lest his wife discover his peculiar fetish. The guys, including Hank (Kevin Daniels) and Brian (Kevin Bigley), comply, but not before witnessing something so soul-shatteringly disgusting that they are reduced to silence. I’m not a prude when it comes to the porn culture that dominates “Sirens,” but I’m a firm believer that when it enters the room, any hint of wit conversation quickly exits.

Contrived characterizations and a smutty tone continue on “Saint George” (8 p.m., FX). George (George Lopez) is supposed to be the rich founder of an energy drink company who is also a public school teacher. He’s still close to his ex-wife, Mackenzie (Jenn Lyon), with whom he shares banter, but no chemistry. Equally alien is their nerdy son, Harper (Kaden Gibson). George seems embarrassed by a world where people use cellphone technology to “sext” pictures of intimate body parts. This being a “family” show, even George’s mother (Olga Merediz) jokes about masturbation.

Andy Daly stars on “Review” (9 p.m., Comedy Central) as a pompous critic/pundit who “reviews” life experiences that are alien to him and describes them NPR-style for our illumination. Imagine “Borat” as “Charlie Rose.” “Review” doesn’t work.

Tonight’s other highlights

A social networking nightmare on “Community” (7 p.m., NBC).

Tom and Ben want to organize a benefit concert on “Parks & Recreation” (7:30 p.m., NBC).

The mayor complicates Keegan’s life on “Rake” (8 p.m. Fox).

Love undercover on “Grey’s Anatomy” (8 p.m., ABC).

BIRTHDAYS Former Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan is 88. Author Gabriel Garcia Marquez is 87. Actor-director Rob Reiner is 67. Actor D.L. Hughley is 50. NBA player Shaquille O’Neal is 42. Rapper/producer Tyler, the Creator is 23.

recently diagnosed with terminal cancer. Am I being small-minded now that she has real worries and fears? — Phoenix Dear Phoenix: The fact that your motherin-law is going through some difficult times means you should be kind and considerate, even helpful when possible, but not a doormat. If you could periodically phone or visit her to see how she’s doing, or offer to bring groceries or stay with her husband so she can have a break, those would be kind gestures. But your husband has chosen not to limit his mother’s phone calls even though it interferes with his relationship with you. That is unlikely to change, especially now. Dear Annie: I do not have a dishwasher. I wash all of my dishes


For Thursday, March 6: This year detaching from situations in order to find a resolution becomes an art. You often see the problem, but the challenge remains to find the right path that will make the most parties happy. If you are single, you could meet someone very intriguing. If you are attached, you structure your lives very differently in one area. 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 could be discouraged by someones resentment. Your frustration could come to the surface. Tonight: Nap, then decide. Taurus (April 20-May 20)  You’ll dominate, partially because someone refuses to discuss the issue at hand. Communication easily could get messed up. Tonight: Out and about. Gemini (May 21-June 20)  Pretend that you are not in the room. Just listen and take in information. Tonight: Go out and join friends. Be yourself. Cancer (June 21-July 22)  You naturally will shine in a meeting. On some level, you’ll like what you hear or see, even if a disagreement dominates the moment. Tonight: Kick back and relax. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)  You could be in the midst of tension that you would like to forget about. Consider eliminating this pressure. Tonight: Get into

and silverware by hand. I place my silverware in the dish drain rack with the handles down and the eating end up. I think it makes sense that the water drains away from the eating end, making it more sanitary. And the bottom of the drain can accumulate all kinds of detritus. Why would I want my fork tines in that? My friend disagrees and says it should be the other way around so that you don’t catch your hand on a knife while emptying the dish rack. What do you say? — Em from Indy Dear Em: We’re with you when it comes to forks, spoons and butter knives, but sharp knives should be placed facing down in order to avoid injury. — Send questions to, or Annie’s Mailbox, P.O. Box 118190 Chicago, IL 60611.

weekend mode early. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)  Resolving a misunderstanding could be impossible. If you are closed down, it would better to talk. Tonight: Join favorite people at a favorite place. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)  You might want to come to an understanding with a loved one. Refuse to get stuck. Tonight: Try something totally new. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)  Your moods could have a bigger impact than you might realize. Be more forthright if you want a problem resolved. Tonight: Say “yes” to someone’s whims. Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)  Go with the moment. You might have kept a lot of your thoughts to yourself. Tonight: Toss yourself into a fun scene. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)  Your mind could jump to better ideas. Follow through on these thoughts more often. Tonight: Run some errands. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)  You might opt to stay close to home. You could find others in a strange mood. Tonight: Let your spontaneity out. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)  Take an overview. Conversations will be about the story, not the real issues below the surface. Tonight: Head home early. — The astrological forecast should be read for entertainment only.
