SHOCKINGLY GOOD

The consensus is it should be a broad-based funding stream, but there hasn’t been a coalition coalescing around what that means.”

‘They just don’t take Wichita State seriously, no matter how undefeated they get’

— Rep. Tom Sloan, R-Lawrence, saying there has no been no agreement on how to provide funding for future water needs

Long-term water needs require flow of money By Scott Rothschild srothschild@ljworld.com

A yearlong effort to plan for the future of water in Kansas is hitting a watershed discussion: money. “The question we have not answered yet is what is the level of funding people will be comfortable with, and where will that revenue come from,” said Earl Lewis, assistant director of the Kansas Water Office. In October, Gov. Sam Brownback issued a call for development of a 50-

year plan for water in Kansas that would meet the needs of a growing population and extend the life of the Ogallala High Plains Aquifer in western Kansas. Since then, a team of officials from the Kansas Water Office, Kansas Department of Agriculture and Kansas Water Authority has held nearly 100 sessions meeting with more than 4,500 people across the state to talk about water needs.

Outside a trio of portable metal buildings just off the crowded main street of Zaatari, Jordan, dozens of women lined up each day to receive contraceptives, breastfeeding consultations and, often, to give birth. Kansas University medical student Hannah Myrick Anderson was there for it all, assisting Jordanian aid workers at a reproductive health clinic in Jordan’s largest Syrian refugee camp. Last summer, Anderson traveled to Jordan through a $2,500 fellowship from the KU Medical Center. She recently pub-

Situated along the SyriaJordan border, Zaatari currently houses more than 100,000 people, just a fraction of the more than 2.5 million who have fled the country since the outbreak of civil war in 2011. In camps like Zaatari, refugees struggle to live without the most basic of resources. But life is even harder for the settlement’s female refugees, Anderson said. “That was a big reason I wanted to go to this camp,” she said. “I wanted to learn what medicine looks like in a crisis situation like this.” Please see SYRIAN, page 6A

BRIEFLY

A CLOSE

Wichita — Not everyone is excited by the Wichita State University basketball team’s march into history. Bookmakers in Las Vegas have been watching the 34-0 Shockers win game after game this season with mounting anxiety as the NCAA Tournament approaches. A Shocker win could be costly for them. “Out of all the teams in college basketball, they are the one team that we really don’t want to win the tournament,” said Jeff Stoneback, race and sports book manager at the Mirage. “We would be a large loser if Wichita State won.” Although the Shockers were coming off a Final Four appearance as a No. 9 seed last spring and returned many of its players, bookmakers gave them long odds to win the na-

win a year after coming a victory short of playing for the national title — not taken seriously. While Shockers fans say they get pretty good treatment in Lawrence overall, that may be, in part, because Jayhawk Nation isn’t ready to give them their due. So they have chips on their shoulders, ready with a response for anyone who brings up Wichita State’s mid-major status or lesser Ratings Percentage Index, or RPI. “The strength-ofschedule argument is always there. But I think the Shockers sort of say it best: ‘Play angry.’ That’s about as good an attitude about the haters as you can have,” said Emily Smith, a third-year KU law student who got her undergraduate degree at WSU. “It’s not their fault their conference isn’t as strong as the Big 12. They’re still building and developing their program.” Wichita State fans readily acknowledge that their team doesn’t have the winning history of KU and that Charles Koch Arena isn’t quite Allen Fieldhouse, but they say the assumption that WSU is the lesser squad does tend to get old. “I think Wichita State’s treated like the kid broth-

tional championship this year. The Mirage opened them in May at 75-1 to go all the way, Stoneback said, so anybody who put $10 on the Shockers back then stands to win $750 if WSU takes the title. As WSU steamed along undefeated, the odds began dropping, and the Mirage now gives the Shockers 6-1 odds to win it all. “Once they started getting around that 20-win mark, that’s when betting heated up on them,” Stoneback said. “We have listed 100 teams, and they’re the fourth most popular.” Florida and Kansas are the top two picks at the Mirage, while Wichita State is tied with Michigan State and Syracuse in the next spot, he said. The Las Vegas Hotel and Casino, formerly the Las Vegas Hilton, also faces some liability if WSU reaches the top. “The book does not er: ‘Look at you, awww, you’re adorable,’” said Lawrence accountant Linda Jalenak, who, like her husband, Jerry, is originally from Wichita and attended WSU, back when the school was known more for its baseball and bowling prowess. “I don’t think KU fans see us as a threat to their No. 1 standing in the state.” When the Jalenaks are out in public wearing Wichita State gear (not an easy thing to find in Lawrence, they say), they do get accosted by their fellow Lawrencians — but in a good way. Jayhawk loyalists congratulate them on their team’s success; Shockers fans give them high fives or chant “WuShock!” Of course, not everyone in Lawrence is so genial. “I take so much flack from my friends, especially the ones who aren’t from Wichita,” said Corbin Mihelic, a junior at KU and Wichita native whose family holds Shockers’ season tickets. “They just don’t take Wichita State seriously, no matter how undefeated they get.” Growing up north of Wichita, Austin Hershberger’s dad would always tell him about the Shockers’ glory days: their 1965 Final Four appearance; the 1980s, when they were led by future NBA stars such as Xavier McDaniel and Antoine Carr. But having experienced only mediocre WSU basketball during the course of his life,

and death sentence because he had received ineffective counsel during his first trial. He awaits a retrial on capital murder and attempted first-degree murder charges. The Topeka CapitalJournal reports Wachtel argued Friday at a motions hearing that 37.5 percent of the men on Kansas’ death row are black, while black men comprise only 5.5 percent of the state’s population.

need Wichita State to win the national championship, at least not now,” said Jay Kornegay, vice president of the LVH Superbook. LVH opened the Shockers at 60-1 odds in April, got no action, adjusted them to 75-1, still got no action, then raised them to 100-1 and sold 52 tickets, Kornegay said. Most were $10 and $20 bets, but there were a few $100 tickets, too. Still, he said, “We don’t have that much liability. It’s been such an open season, any of the top 20 teams can win.” LVH lists Florida as the favorite at 9-2 odds, Kansas second at 6-1, then Arizona at 7-1, Duke and Michigan State at 8-1 and Wichita State at 10-1, ahead of Syracuse, defending champ Louisville, Kentucky, Michigan, Virginia and Wisconsin. that success was hard for Hershberger to envision. Until 2013. “Last year’s Final Four was magical,” said Hershberger, now a senior at KU. “It’s still hard for me to wrap my mind around the fact that the Shockers were actually in the Final Four!” Like Hershberger, many Lawrence-based Shockers supporters are actually Jayhawks fans, too. And while many Kansans are crossing their fingers that WSU and KU will meet in the tournament, some Lawrence residents say that would be just too difficult. “I really do support both teams — I hope I don’t have to pick,” said Linda Jalenak. Ryan Camenzind, a Shockers enthusiast and freshman at KU, said he wouldn’t know which squad to cheer for “until the ball was tipped.” (Camenzind, like everyone else interviewed for this article, doesn’t actually think Wichita State would beat the Jayhawks in that hypothetical matchup.) So allegiances can often get fuzzy for the Shockers fan living in Lawrence — but not always. “I’m going to root for both KU and WSU in the tournament,” said McLendon, who used to reside in Wichita and teach at WSU. “But in my heart I really want Wichita State to win it all!”

Faculty give group’s rewrite thumbs up By Ben Unglesbee Twitter: @LJW_KU

Faculty and staff at Kansas universities are weighing in on the draft of a rewritten and repurposed social media policy that will go before the Kansas Board of Regents in April. The proposal came out of a work group created by the regents after a so-

cial media policy passed by the regents in December was viewed by some as an affront to academic freedom and free speech. So far, the new proposal has received wide praise from university employees. “The comments are running overwhelmingly in favor of the proposed Please see POLICY, page 4A

Bill for health care Two suffer injuries in rural car accidents navigators at issue

J-W Staff Reports

A 19-year-old Lawrence woman was in satisfactory condition Sunday night after being life-flighted from the scene of a car accident in rural Douglas County early Sunday morning. Olya Helt was driving her Toyota Camry eastbound on North 950 Road around 12:30 a.m. Sunday when she failed to negotiate a curve, said Lt. Steve Lewis, Douglas County Sheriff’s Office

spokesman. The vehicle jumped to East 850 Road and flipped. Emergency crews arrived on scene, where they found Helt’s vehicle on its side in a ditch. Lewis said crews extricated Helt from the vehicle, and a LifeStar helicopter transported her to Stormont-Vail HealthCare in Topeka. The story was first reported by Journal-World news partner Operation 100 News. While Lawrence Douglas County Fire-Medical

crews were responding to this accident, they were called to another injury accident at the intersection of North 1550 Road and East 1625 Road in Wakarusa Township, Lewis said. Keith Borsdorf, 55, was headed northbound on East 1625 road around 1 a.m. Sunday when he drove his Cadillac straight through a corner, Lewis said. When emergency personnel arrived at the scene, they found Borsdorf’s vehicle down a

steep embankment. Operation 100 News reported that medics called Borsdorf’s injuries “critical,” and they requested a helicopter for transport. Dispatchers contacted LifeFlight Eagle and Life Net; however, both were unavailable because of fog in the area east of Lawrence. Lewis said Borsdorf was taken by ambulance to Kansas University Medical Center in Kansas City, Kan. His condition was not available Sunday night.

Navigator legislation moves forward A bill requiring health insurance navigators under the Affordable Care Act to register and comply with numerous mandates is now headed to the full Senate. Supporters of Senate Bill 362 say it will protect consumers as they deal with navigators who help enroll people into the ACA’s health insurance marketplace. “It gives consumers checks, so that the consecurity by making sure sumers can be assured that navigators have the Please see CAPITOL, page 4A appropriate background

Water CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1A

Lewis said many of those people have expressed the need to improve water efficiency, to tap into crop varieties that require less water and to conserve and identify new water sources. That costs money. Some estimates have pegged the cost of a new reservoir at $500 million. And a proposed pipeline to transfer water from the Missouri River to western Kansas would cost billions of dollars, although a specific price has not been determined yet.

L awrence J ournal -W orld Meanwhile, irrigation pressure continues to drive down the ability of the Ogallala Aquifer to produce crops. In 2012 the aquifer’s water tables in Kansas dropped by three and a half feet, the second highest dip on record. And the state’s aging reservoirs, which twothirds of Kansans rely on, are filling up with silt at an alarming rate. John Redmond Reservoir has lost more than 40 percent of its capacity to sediment, state officials have said. Addressing these issues comes at a time when legislators have dipped into the state water fund to pay for other budget items. An annual $6 million ap-

This is a chance for us to be at the forefront for a thoughtful, responsible social media policy that could be a model for others to follow.� — Philip Nel, a Kansas State distinguished professor of English ging in their heels� when they see the draft because it looks so different from the original. So far KU administrators and the regents have been quiet on the draft. KU spokesman Jack Martin said the chancellor and provost won’t comment for now because they believe “it’s important to let faculty and staff have their feedback and let the process play out.� Breeze Richardson, a spokeswoman for the regents, said the regents also wanted to let cam-

puses weigh in first and felt it would be more appropriate “to wait until the recommendations are received in April to comment.� As currently written, the regents’ social media policy allows university leaders to suspend and fire employees for social media posts that impair discipline or create disharmony at the university, or that conflict with the best interest of the university and its ability to perform services, among other violations.

After passing the policy unanimously in December, the regents announced they would review it in response to widespread criticism that it was too broad and could restrain free speech and academic freedom. The regents established the work group in January to study the policy and make recommendations to the board by April. The policy was written after KU journalism professor David Guth’s anti-NRA post on Twitter sparked an uproar as well as calls from some state lawmakers for Guth to be fired.

KU Faculty Senate President Chris Steadham called the draft “a vast improvement over the existing policy,� saying it protects free speech and academic freedom while also providing guidelines for responsible conduct.

Sloan, chairman of the House Vision 2020 Committee, said there has been no agreement on how to provide funding for future water needs. “The consensus is it should be a broad-based funding stream, but there hasn’t been a coalition coalescing around what that means,� Sloan said. More discussions and meetings are planned over the next several months. A draft plan for meeting the long-term water needs of Kansas will be put together by October.

Family adopting children from Ukraine finally home Topeka (ap) — A Kansas couple and their four newly adopted children have made it home after a month in Ukraine, where they were stranded amid violence and civil unrest. Topeka residents Don and Lisa Jenkins arrived in Ukraine on Feb. 2, where they hoped to finalize the adoptions of their four children by Valentine’s Day, the Topeka CapitalJournal reported. But when thousands of people took to the streets of Kiev to protest the government’s movement toward Russia and away from possible ties to the European Union, those plans were put on indefinite hold. “It’s great to be back in America,” Don Jenkins, 50, said minutes after he and his family arrived around 9 p.m. Saturday at Kansas City International Airport. “We’re excited to be home.” The family left Kiev at 6:30 a.m. Saturday, flew to Munich, Germany, be-

When their jet touched down at Chicago’s O’Hare Airport on Saturday afternoon, the four adopted children — Tatiana, 17; Angela, 16; Natalie, 15; and Roman, 8 — officially became American citizens. It took a couple hours for the children to go through customs in Chicago and nearly caused

the Jenkinses to miss their flight to Kansas City. By the time they arrived in Missouri, the family was running on adrenaline, said Lisa Jenkins, 46. When their trip ended Saturday, the family had crossed eight time zones and flew 5,409 miles. “Everybody’s really exhausted,” she said. “At the same time, we’re all so excited to finally be home.”

The second-year medical student attended middle school and high school in Mafraq, a small city near Zaatari. During her six-week stint at the camp, Anderson spent most of her time working alongside a midwife in one of the clinic’s three units. The building, Kathryn Land, called a “caravan” by refudata entry, gees, contained a reception Lawrence desk, a wardrobe in which “Go and hang around the medications were kept, an parks a little bit.” exam bed and a nonfunctioning bathroom.

KANSAS UNIVERSITY MEDICAL STUDENT Hannah Myrick Anderson, second from left, poses with some of the patients she treated last year at a reproductive health clinic during her visit to a Syrian refugee camp in Zaatari, Jordan. On any given day, 60 to 70 women would visit the midwife’s caravan, a tiny space measuring just 15 feet long and 8 feet wide, Anderson said. Many of her patients were teenage wives and mothers. It was not uncommon, she recalled, to see a 16-year-old stop by the clinic for birth control or a pregnancy test. “It was really interesting

Women, forced to live in close proximity to men who are not relatives, no longer feel protected by their large families as they did back home. Rape is a constant fear, Anderson said.

families married off their daughters “on the younger age of the spectrum” in the hopes that a husband might offer some security against attackers. The fear of assault manifested itself in less obvious ways, too, Anderson said. Many women were afraid to use the camp’s bathrooms and developed urinary tract infections as a result. Still, Anderson said she was amazed to see how Zaatari’s refugees worked to maintain a sense of normalcy in the camp. “I would imagine that if I was in a refugee camp, I think it would be hard to go on with some of these normal milestones of life, but it was interesting to me that that didn’t seem to be the case,” she said. “People were still getting married and having a lot of babies. People didn’t stop making those big changes in their lives even though they were in this really strange place and cut off from everything they were familiar with before.” Anderson, now in her second year at KU Med, plans to continue working with women in obstetrics and gynecology.

IN THIS FEB. 4, 2014, FILE PHOTO, privacy expert and former White House privacy official Peter Swire testifies before the House Judiciary Committee’s hearing on Recommendations to Reform FISA Authorities, on Capitol Hill in Washington. A massive data breach at Target Corp. that exposed tens of millions of credit card numbers has focused attention on a patchwork of state consumer notification laws and renewed a push for a single national standard.

Mixed emotions felt on data-breach notifications Washington (ap) — The data breach at Target Corp. that exposed millions of credit card numbers has focused attention on the patchwork of state consumer notification laws and renewed a push for a single national standard. Most states have laws that require retailers to disclose data breaches, but the laws vary wildly. Consumers in one state might learn immediately that their personal information had been exposed, but that might not happen in another state, and notification requirements for businesses depend on where their customers are located. Attorney General Eric Holder has joined the call for a nationwide notification standard, but divisions persist, making a consensus questionable this year. “We’re stuck with

It is clear Lawrence agrees with me, because, forget Rome, in this town all roads lead to a Mexican restaurant. West Lawrence residents now have a closer health fix. El Sol Mexican Restaurant has opened in the shopping center at Bob Billings Parkway and Wakarusa Drive. It occupies the spot where the El Mezcal Mexican restaurant used to be. El Sol is owned by the same group that operates Tres Mexicanos at 23rd streets and Harper in eastern Lawrence. The menus are similar but not identical. “This gets us in the east and the west,” said Luis Ojeda, manager for El Sol. Ojeda said he thought West Lawrence, especially near the Bob Billings and Wakarusa intersection, was generally lacking not only in Mexican cuisine but eateries in general. In case you haven’t heard, Bambino’s, the one other restaurant at the intersection, has closed. No word yet on what may go into that spot. As for El Sol, its ownership group is a longtime player in the Mexican restaurant business. In addition to Tres Mexicanos, the company also has an El Sol restaurant in Ottawa. Ojeda said the company’s owners got their start with the longtime Topeka Mexican restaurant Tacos El Sol, which has been in business since 1998. Hours for El Sol are 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. Now, I have to get back to being healthy, although

some Richard Simmons type (meaning he was very hairy) has alerted me that corn is a grain, not a vegetable, when harvested to make chips. One, that sounds like voodoo to me. And two, if corn chips aren’t healthy, why is the leading brand named Tostitos? I’m almost certain that is the Spanish word for healthy. lll

You have heard of wifi. (I know I have. It takes a good part of my morning to get the RadioShack Tandy 1000 hooked up to it.) And perhaps you even have a few brain cells that survived the 1970s and still remember the phrase Hi-Fi. But now there is something called BurgerFi? Indeed there is, and Lawrence hamburger lovers will get a chance to check it out by midspring. The Floridabased restaurant chain BurgerFi has plans to open at 918 Massachusetts St. in the space that formerly was occupied by Chutney’s. Franchise owners Josh and Michelle Kurzban believe Lawrence will take to the chain’s philosophy of producing tasty hamburgers in an all-natural way. “We figure that college students like eating hamburgers, and if they can eat them from a source that is natural, that is going to resonate well with them,” Kurzban said. The restaurant makes

years of experience in the financial industry and recently served as senior vice president at Emprise Bank.

all of its hamburgers out of free-range, hormonefree, never-frozen Angus beef. But the natural theme doesn’t stop there. The restaurant carries a line of ice cream concrete desserts that are made with natural sugar cane instead of high fructose corn syrup. Even the furniture gets in on the act. The plastic chairs are made from recycled Coke bottles. As for the actual hamburgers, the menu indicates a variety. In addition to the standard hamburger and cheeseburger, there also is something called the Breakfast All Day Burger. It includes hickory bacon drizzled with maple syrup, a fried egg and hash browns. (I can think of nothing more natural than me sitting in front of the Tandy, playing a game of Turtle Racer and eating three or four of those hamburgers.) Also on the menu: a brisket burger, made from 28-day, dry-aged ground brisket; five different styles of hot dogs, hand-cut fries that can be ordered regular, well-done or limp; tempura, beer-battered onion rings; and a host of craft beers and wines. The restaurant also has signed a marketing deal with the Sporting KC soccer club, which means the restaurant plans to have some team events at the Lawrence location, and also at a Leawood location that is scheduled to open this spring. BurgerFi, which takes its name from the founder’s vision of the “burgerfication of the nation,” has 36 restaurants open currently, but plans to have 75 by the end of 2014.

Voting rights A bill that limits party-switching in Kansas also could limit voters’ right to support their chosen candidates.

A

bill that would create new limits on when Kansas voters could change their party affiliations is another example of state legislators trying to correct a problem that probably doesn’t exist or at least not to an extent that justifies legislative action. In this case, that “fix” also could limit Kansas voters’ ability to cast their ballots for their preferred candidates. The bill that has passed the Senate Ethics and Election Committee last week would bar Kansas voters from changing their party affiliation from June 1 (the filing deadline for candidates) to Sept. 1 (about a month after the August primary elections). The goal of the bill, according to Kansas Republican Party officials, is to prevent voters from switching parties in order to skew the opposing party’s primary. The officials say they have no proof of such switches, but they have a feeling some Democratic voters are switching parties to vote for the Republican candidate they believe is less likely to win against the Democratic opponent. That might be a little underhanded, but it’s far from the most egregious political tactic employed in most races. And what if the voter actually is switching parties to vote for the candidate he or she prefers? One of the arguments presented during committee testimony is that primary elections belong to the political party. That’s not really true. Political conventions that choose party nominees belong to the party, but state primaries belong to all state taxpayers. Secretary of State Kris Kobach also supported the bill, saying it would reduce the administrative burden on county election officers who must record registration changes. That’s pretty ironic coming from the man who is trying to force county election officers to conduct a two-tiered election for people who have registered for federal elections and those registered for state elections. It’s also possible that the workload for county officials actually would increase under the bill because people would switch their registration to “unaffiliated” before the June 1 deadline to keep their options open in the primary. Under the new bill unaffiliated voters still would be able to declare a party at the polls for a primary. The big question here is whether voters who feel strongly about a candidate from either party should be able to vote for that candidate even in the primary. If a Democrat looks over the field of both Democratic and Republican candidates and finds his or her preferred candidate is a Republican, shouldn’t that voter have an opportunity to help make sure that candidate advances to the general election by winning the Republican primary? The same principle applies in reverse, of course, but contested Democratic primary are far more rare in Kansas. Party-switching for political purpose may occur to some extent now, but efforts to ban that practice serve an equally political motive that also could infringe on the right of Kansas voters to support their chosen candidates.

Democrats politicize the IRS Washington — What’s been said of confession — that it is good for one’s soul but bad for one’s reputation — can also be true of testifying to Congress, so Lois Lerner has chosen to stay silent. Hers, however, is an eloquent silence. The most intrusive and potentially most punitive federal agency has been politicized; the IRS has become an appendage of Barack Obama’s party. Furthermore, congruent with exhortations from some congressional Democrats, it is intensifying its efforts to suffocate groups critical of progressives, by delaying what once was the swift, routine granting of taxexempt status. So, the IRS, far from repenting of its abusive behavior, is trying to codify the abuses. It hopes to nullify with new rules the existing legal right of 501(c)(4) groups, many of which are conservative, to participate in politics. The proposed rules have drawn more than 140,000 comments, most of them complaints, some from liberals wary of IRS attempts to broadly define “candidate-related political activity” and to narrow the permissible amount of this. Lerner is, so far, the face of this use of government to punish political adversaries. She knows what her IRS unit did and how it intersects with the law, and for a second time she has exercised her constitutional right to remain silent rather than risk self-incrimination.

So, the IRS, far from repenting of its abusive behavior, is trying to codify the abuses.” The public has a right to make reasonable inferences from her behavior.   And from Obama’s. After calling the IRS behavior “outrageous,” he now says there is not a “smidgen” of evidence of anything to be outraged about. He knows this even though the supposed investigation of the IRS behavior has not been completed, or perhaps even begun. The person he chose to investigate his administration is an administration employee and a generous donor to his campaigns. Obama breezily says there was nothing more sinister than “boneheaded decisions” by wayward and anonymous IRS underlings. Certainly boneheadedness explains much about this administration. Still, does he consider it interesting that the consequences of IRS boneheadedness were not randomly distributed, but thwarted conservatives? The IRS rules that Obama

says befuddled the IRS boneheads — to his benefit — read today exactly as they have read since 1959. For half a century they did not prevent the IRS from processing applications for tax-exempt status in less than three months. Some conservative group should offer $10,000 to anyone who can identify a liberal group that had the experience scores conservative groups have had — an application delayed more than three years and receipt of an IRS questionnaire containing at least 60 questions. Speaking of questions: Can anyone identify a Democratic Senate candidate whose tax records were leaked, as Christine O’Donnell’s were when she was the Republican candidate in Delaware in 2010? Is it a coincidence that in January 2011, after Catherine Engelbrecht requested tax-exempt status for two conservative groups she founded in Texas — King Street Patriots and True the Vote — the Engelbrecht family business was notified of its first IRS audit? Does James Comey wonder why (this was before he became FBI director), five months after Engelbrecht’s tax-exemption request, FBI agents appeared seeking information about attendees at the King Street Patriots meetings? Were five subsequent FBI contacts “checking in” for “updates” on the group’s activities really necessary? Why did the Occupational Safety and Health Admin-

istration and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives show a sudden intrusive interest in the Engelbrechts’ business, which has nothing to do with alcohol or tobacco or firearms or explosives? The idea that politicians should write laws restricting people critical of them is as perverse as the idea that the sprawling, opaque IRS bureaucracy should be assigned to construe and apply such laws. It is bad enough that there is the misbegotten Federal Election Commission to do what the First Amendment forbids — government regulation of the quantity, content and timing of political speech. This column has previously noted that in 1996 a Republican Senate candidate called the FEC to dispute campaign finance charges made by Democrats. The head of the FEC’s enforcement division told the Republican: “Promise me you will never run for office again, and we will drop this case.” So spoke Lois Lerner. There almost certainly are people, above her and beyond the IRS, who initiated or approved the IRS’ punitive targeting of conservative groups, and who hope Lerner’s history of aggressive partisanship will cause investigators to conclude that she is as high as responsibility for the targeting rises. Those people should hire criminal defense attorneys.   — George Will is a columnist for Washington Post Writers Group.

Police are key to Mexican drug war Mexico City — The recent capture of the world’s biggest drug kingpin, Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, was heralded across the world as a major triumph over the drug cartels, but the fact that it was carried out by the Mexican navy — rather than by police forces — should make us skeptical about its significance. Guzman was captured Feb. 22 by an elite team of the Mexican navy with the help of U.S. intelligence agencies in a pre-dawn raid in the beach resort town of Mazatlan. He was flown from there to a navy hangar in Mexico City, where Mexico’s attorney general gave a news conference to announce his arrest. But the fact that Guzman’s capture was a top-down, inand-out raid by navy marines, in which neither police forces nor local law enforcement authorities had much participation, is a bad sign about Mexico’s ongoing war against the drug cartels, well-placed security experts tell me. “To defeat the drug cartels, you need good local police forces, and that’s where we have our biggest problem,” says Eduardo Guerrero, a security consultant who until recently worked for Mexico’s public security and intelligence agencies. “The fight needs to start at the bottom.”

Andres Oppenheimer aoppenheimer@miamiherald.com

The arrest of ‘El Chapo’ Guzman was a major propaganda coup for Peña Nieto, but it’s a mostly symbolic victory in the war against the drug cartels.”

Local police forces are the first circle of contact with the drug cartels, and are the key to dismantling them, he explained. But Mexico has more than 2,000 police forces, including the Federal Police, 1,800 municipal police forces, 32 state police forces, and various banking, road, tourism, and customs police forces, which in most cases are poorly trained, badly paid, and penetrated by organized crime. Most local police chiefs are political appointees — often

relatives or friends of a governor or mayor — with no law enforcement experience. And despite the creation of a handful of police academies in recent years, most local police agents receive little or no training, and get starting salaries of about $1,000 a month. Asked whether the arrest of “El Chapo” Guzman will have a devastating impact on his Sinaloa drug cartel, most experts agree that it won’t. Many other cartel bosses have been captured in the past in similar raids by the marines or the army, only to be replaced by their second in command, or by whoever wins internal wars to succeed him. Government officials say “El Chapo’s” arrest was a major coup in the fight against the Sinaloa cartel, among other things because it will give authorities priceless intelligence that will help nab other cartel members. Also, the widely publicized capture of the world’s richest drug kingpin will help fight the perception that the drug lords enjoy impunity, they say. My opinion: The arrest of “El Chapo” Guzman was a major propaganda coup for Peña Nieto, but it’s a mostly symbolic victory in the war against the drug cartels. Perhaps one of the most revealing things we have learned

after his capture was that, contrary to reports that he had been hiding in Argentina or another Latin American country after his daring 2001 escape from a Mexican prison, he had been living comfortably in Mexico for the past 13 years. What’s more, “El Chapo” Guzman allegedly used to dine at fine restaurants with dozens of friends and relatives at a time. He obviously enjoyed the protection of local law enforcement, and so did his underlings. I will start believing that Mexico is making headway in defeating the drug cartels the day the country streamlines its 2,000 police forces and creates a professional career service for all police officers. So far, the Peña Nieto government’s plan to unify and professionalize municipal police forces is similar to the plans announced by every new Mexican government in the past two decades, with no results in sight. Until we see police forces on the front lines in the war on the drug mafias, we will continue seeing Hollywoodstyled raids that will occasionally capture a big cartel boss, but will not make a major dent on criminal organizations. — Andres Oppenheimer is a Latin America correspondent for The Miami Herald.

ese aircraft spotted what they suspected was one of the doors of a missing Boeing 777 on Sunday, while troubling questions emerged about how two passengers managed to board the ill-fated aircraft using stolen passports. Interpol confirmed it knew about the stolen passports but said no authorities checked its vast databases on stolen documents before the Boeing jetliner departed Saturday en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing. Warning “only a handful of countries” routinely make such checks, Interpol secretary general Ronald Noble chided authorities for “waiting for a tragedy to put prudent security measures

in place at borders and boarding gates.” More than a day and half after Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 went missing, no confirmed debris from the jetliner had been found and the final minutes before its disappearance remained a mystery. The plane lost contact with ground controllers somewhere between Malaysia and Vietnam. However, searchers in a low-flying plane spotted an object that appeared to be one of the plane’s doors, the state-run Thanh Nien newspaper said, citing the deputy chief of staff of Vietnam’s army, Lt. Gen. Vo Van Tuan. Two ships from the maritime police were headed to the site, in waters about 60 miles south of Tho Chu island,

in the same area where oil slicks were spotted Saturday. “From this object, hopefully (we) will find the missing plane,” Tuan said. The missing plane apparently fell from the sky at cruising altitude in fine weather, and the pilots were unable to send a distress signal — unusual circumstances under which a modern jetliner would crash. Authorities were checking on the identities of the two passengers who boarded the plane with stolen passports. On Saturday, the foreign ministries in Italy and Austria said the names of two citizens listed on the flight’s manifest matched the names on two passports reported stolen in Thailand.

‘Band of Brothers’ veteran dies at 90 Philadelphia — William “Wild Bill” Guarnere, one of the World War II veterans whose exploits were dramatized in the TV miniseries “Band of Brothers,” has died. He was 90. His son, William Guarnere Jr., confirmed Sunday that his father died at Jefferson University Hospital in Philadelphia. Guarnere was rushed to the hospital early Saturday and died of a ruptured aneurysm early Saturday night. The HBO miniseries, based on a book by Stephen Ambrose, followed the members of Easy Company, 506th Regiment, 101st Airborne Division from training in Georgia in 1942 through some of the war’s fiercest European battles through the war’s end in 1945. Guarnere, whose combat exploits earned him his nickname, lost a leg while trying to help a wounded solider during the Battle of the Bulge. His commendations included the Silver Star, two Bronze Stars and two Purple Hearts.

Top honors ALL-BIG 12 TEAMS

Tom Keegan tkeegan@ljworld.com

Big 12 really is best league It happens every March in every power conference. As Selection Sunday draws closer, coaches take the podium and talk up their league as “the best in the country.” Such words scratch the backs of fellow conference coaches, and it helps everybody in the league. This year, it happens to be true for the Big 12. The best guess is seven schools, or 70 percent of the conference members, will earn NCAA Tournament bids. If West Virginia could find a way to win a couple of games in Kansas City during the upcoming Big 12 tournament in Sprint Center in Kansas City, Mo., as many as eight schools could receive bids. The ACC has a greater number of serious Final Four contenders — Virginia, Syracuse, Duke and North Carolina — but might not have more than a third of its 15 teams receive invitations to the most entertaining tournament on the planet. Half of the 10 American Athletic Conference schools — Cincinnati, Connecticut, Louisville, Memphis and SMU — need not sweat out Selection Sunday. The league’s dropoff between the first and second division is as severe as any in the nation. The Big Ten always has multiple Final Four threats, but just half the 12 schools have what it takes to earn atlarge berths. Close second. As usual, the Pac-12 is better than most know because most are snoring by the time their games finish, but with just one team (Arizona) in the Associated Press Top 25, it can’t quite match the Big 12. The SEC is another underrated league, especially given the way Tennessee is playing of late, but the only Top 25 teams are bookends Florida and Kentucky. The strength of the Big 12 made it impossible to avoid omitting quality players from the AP All-Big 12 teams to be released today. Here’s what I went with: Player of the Year: Kansas University’s Andrew Wiggins. Coach of the Year: Oklahoma’s Lon Kruger. Freshman of the year: Wiggins. Please see KEEGAN, page 3B

THE ALL-BIG 12 CONFERENCE FIRST-TEAM, AS ANNOUNCED SUNDAY, is, clockwise from top right: Kansas University’s Andrew Wiggins (22), also the league’s freshman of the year; West Virginia’s Juwan Staten; Oklahoma State’s Marcus Smart; Iowa State’s DeAndre Kane, also the league’s newcomer of the year; and ISU’s Melvin Ejim, player of the year.

Wiggins named freshman of year By Gary Bedore gbedore@ljworld.com

Kansas University freshman guard Andrew Wiggins was a unanimous selection for first-team All-Big 12 and also was named conference freshman of the year by the league coaches on Sunday. Wiggins, a 6-foot-8 guard from Ontario, Canada, also made the all-newcomer team, but was not tapped the league player of the year. That honor went to Iowa State’s Melvin Ejim. “I’m happy for Andrew to make first team and freshman of the year. He has had a great season,” KU coach

Bill Self said of Wiggins, the third Jayhawk freshman in history to be selected firstteam All-Big 12. He joins Ben McLemore (last season) and Brandon Rush (2006). The only other freshmen to make first-team all-league: Kevin Durant (Texas) in 2007, Michael Beasley (Kansas State) and Blake Griffin (Oklahoma) in 2008 and Marcus Smart (Oklahoma State) in 2013. “Ejim did have a great year, and I can understand with his production how it could go that way,” Self added of the Iowa State player who ranks second in the league in both scoring and rebounding.

KU freshman center Joel Embiid was named Big 12 defensive player of the year and was second-team all-conference. He also joined Wiggins as a unanimous choice on the league’s all-newcomer team and made the all-defensive team. “I’m happy for Joel. I really think no one in college basketball, when he’s healthy, has the potential to impact the game on both ends more than he does,” Self said of Embiid, who is the first freshman in league history to earn the top defensive player honor. KU’s Jeff Withey was defensive player of the year in 2012 and ’13, Cole Aldrich

in 2010 and ’09 and Mario Chalmers in 2007. “I am certain he is proud of the honor, but the big thing is we need to get him healthy,” Self added of Embiid. KU sophomore Perry Ellis was named third-team all-league, while starters Wayne Selden and Naadir Tharpe were honorable mention, meaning all five starters were honored. “Individual awards are usually based on a collection of your team having success, and certainly our team had success throughout the league,” Self said of the Please see ALL-BIG 12, page 3B

Nicasio, Rockies rout Royals Surprise, Ariz. (ap) — Juan Nicasio thinks he’s headed for the best season of his young career. Nicasio pitched four scoreless innings, Kyle Parker drove in five runs and the Colorado Rockies beat the Kansas City Royals 10-1 on Sunday. Nicasio allowed one hit, struck out three and walked one. The 6-foot-3 right-hander has struggled with injuries since he made his major league debut for Colorado in 2011. He broke his neck later that summer when he was struck by a line drive, and a left knee injury ended his 2012 season after 11 starts. He went 9-9 with a 5.14 ERA in 31 starts last year, and thinks he can better those numbers this season. “For sure,” Nicasio said. “My body is feeling stronger. Now I have more experience. In 2011 and 2012 I was not pitching too much. I was hurting in my neck and my knee. Last year I played all year. I’m feeling more confident now.” In two Cactus League starts, Nicasio has seven scoreless innings, striking out seven and allowing three hits. “I was working my fastball down in the zone and my slider was really good,” Nicasio said. Parker, a former Clemson quarterback who was selected by the Rockies in the first round of the 2010 draft, hit a two-run double in the seventh off Royals closer Greg Holland. He added a three-run double in the Rockies’ fourrun ninth. The Rockies’ 14-hit attack included a two-run single for Wilin Rosario in the first. Paul Janish went 3-for-3, and Corey Dickerson homered in the sixth. The Royals have lost three straight and are 0-3-1 in their past four games.

Starting time Rockies: Omar Infante’s first-inning single was the only hit for Kansas City against Nicasio. Royals: Bruce Chen gave up two runs on three consecutive hits in the first inning, but only a single after that. He worked three innings in all. Trainer’s room Rockies: Left-hander Boone Logan (elbow bone chips removed in offseason) threw a 25-pitch bullpen and should be ready for the March 31 opener. Royals: Infante (sore right shoulder) was the DH Sunday, but could play second base Monday. “That’s the hope,” Royals manager Ned Yost said. Infante has not played in the field since the Feb. 27 exhibition opener.

Ex-Jayhawk Clemons gets track record share Sopot, Poland — Perhaps people know Calvin Smith Jr, and even then likely because his father was a famous runner a generation back. And David Verburg ran on the 4x400 world outdoor gold medal team last year. But Kyle Clemons? Kind Butler III? Like so many on this U.S. team at the world indoor championships which was low on glamor yet deep in talent, they produced beyond expectations Sunday and now have a 4x400 indoor world record to show for it. When everyone expected the three-day event to peter out without a world record, suddenly this quartet made a name for each and every one on the team. “These are moments you really have to cherish,” Butler said. “We are never going to be here again.” The four sprinters got the baton around in a time of 3 minutes, 2.13 seconds, slashing .70 off the 15-year-old indoor mark set by another U.S. relay team at the 1999 world indoors. The U.S. beat Britain into silver and Jamaica took bronze. “The combination of these guys is amazing. They brought it out of me,” said Clemons, a former Kansas University standout (2010-13) who already took bronze in the individual 400. The record gave the U.S. team eight gold and 12 medals overall, more than double the total of runner-up Russia, which had three gold and five overall. The U.S. team won 10 gold and 18 overall two years ago, but that was such an outsize record performance that no one thought it would be possible again. Yet, when it came to gold, the Americans came pretty close with a slew of little-known names. “We never lose runners, lose people. We just keep reloading,” said Clemons of the U.S. athletics program.

NFL

Lions owner Ford dies at 88 Detroit — William Clay Ford, the owner of the Detroit Lions and last surviving grandchild of automotive pioneer Henry Ford, has died. He was 88. Ford Motor Co. said in a statement Sunday that Ford died of pneumonia at his home. Ford help steer the family business for more than five decades. He bought one of his own, the NFL franchise in the Motor City, a half-century ago. He served as an employee and board member of the automaker for more than half of its 100-year history. Ford was regarded as a dignified man by the select few who seemed to know him well. To the masses in Detroit, he was simply the owner of the Lions who struggled to achieve success on the field despite showing his passion for winning by spending money on free agents, coaches, executives and facilities. Ford’s first full season leading the Lions was in 1964, seven years after the franchise won the NFL title. The only playoff victory he enjoyed was in 1992. The Lions are the only team to go 0-16 in a season, hitting rock bottom in 2008. After an 11-year postseason drought, the Lions improved enough to make the playoffs in 2011 only to lose a combined 21 games over the next two seasons.

GOLF

Reed wins; Woodland 16th Doral, Fla. — Patrick Reed felt he belongs among the best in the world. He beat them all Sunday in the Cadillac Championship. Dressed in a red shirt that he always wears in the final round — with Tiger Woods in the group ahead of him — Reed made back-toback birdies early on the front nine to build a big lead and showed off a great short game when the pressure was building on the new Blue Monster at Doral. Equipped with a two-shot lead, the 23-yearold Texan played the final hole conservatively. He two-putted for bogey and closed with an even-par 72 for a one-shot victory over Bubba Watson and Jamie Donaldson of Wales. Former Kansas University golfer Gary Woodland shot his second consecutive 71 to

finish at 72-78-71-71—292. He tied for 16th and pocketed $90,667. Reed became the youngest winner of a World Golf Championship, his third win in his last 14 tournaments. Woods, only three shots behind going into the final round in his best chance this year to win a tournament, said his back flared up after an awkward shot out of the bunker on the sixth hole. He failed to make a birdie in the final round for the first time in his PGA Tour career, and his 78 was his worst Sunday score ever.

Park claims World Ladies Haikou, China — Inbee Park captured her first win of the year in a battle between No. 1 and No. 2 in women’s golf at the World Ladies Championship. Park closed with a 6-under 67 for a five-shot victory over Suzann Pettersen in a Ladies European Tour event. Pettersen, who started the final round tied for the lead, closed with a 72. So Yeon Ryu had a 69 and finished alone in third. Park, the LPGA Tour player of the year in 2013, had a one-shot lead through 10 holes until back-to-back birdies allowed her to seize control. She finished at 24-under 268. The South Korean earned a small measure of redemption. A year ago, Pettersen rallied to beat Park in the final round at Mission Hills.

AUTO RACING

Keselowski edges Junior Las Vegas — Dale Earnhardt Jr. knew he probably didn’t have enough fuel to finish. Being in Vegas, he decided to gamble anyway. And when Earnhardt’s tank went bust on the final lap, Brad Keselowski was right there to clean up. Keselowski surged ahead when Earnhardt ran out of fuel, claiming a dramatic victory Sunday in the NASCAR race at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Earnhardt’s Chevy sputtered and slowed out of the second turn, and Keselowski roared past him on the backstretch in his Penske Ford for the first weekend sweep in his career. Keselowski followed up Saturday’s Nationwide Series victory with his first Las Vegas Cup win, doing it in exhilarating fashion against the friend and mentor who gave him his first big break in racing. “That’s what you live for as a driver, at least I do,” Keselowski said. “Those moments where you’re side by side, and you lay it all out on the racetrack and bring back the car with the tires smoking, engine smoking, and you’re worn out inside because you gave it all you had. It was one of those races there at the end.”

K-State fires Patterson Manhattan — Kansas State has fired women’s basketball coach Deb Patterson, announcing the move two days after an openinground loss in the Big 12 tournament. The Wildcats’ season ended with an 87-84 overtime loss to Kansas on Friday in Oklahoma City. Kansas State was 11-19, going 5-13 in the conference. Patterson was 350-226 in 18 seasons at the school. She led the team to nine NCAA Tournaments and Big 12 titles in 2004 and 2008.

Hadley tops PR Open Rio Grande, Puerto Rico — Chesson Hadley won the Puerto Rico Open for his first PGA Tour victory, holding off Danny Lee by two strokes in wind gusting to 25 mph. Making his 13th PGA Tour start, the 26-yearold Hadley birdied the final two holes at Trump International for a 5-under 67. He’s the first rookie winner since Jordan Spieth in July in the John Deere Classic. Hadley finished at 21-under 267 and earned $630,000, a two-year tour exemption and spots in The Players Championship, PGA Championship and Tournament of Champions. He will move into the mid-60s in the world ranking, giving him a chance to get into the Masters if he can crack the top 50 at the end of the Texas Open.

We’re proud of that, and certainly they are all very deserving.” Texas’ Rick Barnes was named coach of the year and Iowa State’s DeAndre Kane newcomer of the year, while Oklahoma’s Tyler Neal and Oklahoma State’s Phil Forte shared the sixth-man award. Wiggins is a finalist for the 2014 Naismith Trophy, Wooden Award and Oscar Robertson Player of the Year. He leads all league freshmen in scoring at 16.8 points per game, which is eighth overall in the conference. Wiggins ranks 10th in the Big 12 in field-goal percentage (.452) and ninth in free-throw shooting (.765). He scored 41 points against West Virginia on Saturday, the most ever by a KU freshman. Wiggins is the third Jayhawk to be named Big 12 freshman of the year, joining Jeff Boschee (1999) and Rush (2006). Self has said Wiggins has had an exceptional season, even though some pundits may have not seen it that way. “Anything less than 30 and 10 is not going to live up to the hype,” Self said. “He’s handled everything beautifully. He was in a no-win situation. No way

No. 2 Wichita State 83, Indiana State 69 St. Louis — Fred VanVleet scored 13 of his 22 points in the final six minutes, and Wichita State remained the nation’s lone unbeaten after defeating Indiana State on Sunday in the Missouri Valley Conference tournament final. Tekele Cotton added 20 points — with four three-pointers — and Ron Baker had 14 points for the Shockers (34-0), who were tested in the second half before putting the title game out of reach with a 13-0 run capped by two three-pointers from VanVleet that put them up by 18 points with 5:38 to go. Wichita State matched the NCAA record for victories to start the season held by UNLV in 199091 with its third straight convincing tournament win after going 18-0 in the conference regular season. The Shockers won their first conference tournament since 1987. Maryland 75, No. 5 Virginia 69, OT College Park, Md. — Maryland closed out its 61st and final Atlantic Coast Conference regular season in stunning fashion by ending Virginia’s 13-game winning streak. After blowing a seemingly secure lead in the closing seconds of regulation, the Terrapins never trailed in the extra session in front of an emotional sellout crowd of 17,950 at the school’s final home basketball game in a conference it joined as a charter member in 1953. Maryland moves to the Big Ten next season.

Dear Annie: I switched doctors six years ago — and my world fell apart. My new doctor insisted on all kinds of new tests, and I’m glad she did. Simple blood and urine tests let me know that there was a good possibility my kidneys weren’t functioning well. I didn’t know that there are rarely any symptoms until the kidneys are failing. I didn’t know that one in three American adults is at risk for kidney disease. I didn’t know that high blood pressure and diabetes are two of the leading causes of this disease. But I learned quickly that early detection and proper treatment can slow its progress. March is National Kidney Month. March 13th is World Kidney Day. Won’t you help

me join the National Kidney Foundation in urging Americans to learn about the risk factors and simple blood and urine tests for kidney disease? There are many free kidney health screenings around the country. The National Kidney Foundation at kidney.org provides information about screenings. Thank you. — Gail Rae-Garwood, Glendale, Ariz. Dear Gail Rae-Garwood: Thank you so

‘Believe’ unbelievably formulaic Believe me, “Believe” (9 p.m., NBC) is terrible. It begins with a handsome couple driving a lovely little precocious child in their oh-so-safe SUV. It could be a commercial. Suddenly, there’s a threatening vehicle on their tail, and the driver cries “They’re on to us!” This is followed by a violent crash and a tumble down an embankment. And if that weren’t dreadful enough, a fetching female commando with an English accent descends upon the wreckage just in time to snap two adult necks. The child escapes by the skin of her teeth. I wish the neck snapping was the worst cliche in “Believe,” but it’s just the beginning. Bo (Johnny Sequoyah), the girl in peril, has super-secret special powers. She’s shown in flashbacks doing strange stuff that’s straight out of “The Exorcist” and “Carrie.” Shadowy, powerful forces will stop at nothing to capture her and harness her abilities for evil. A smaller, no-less-secretive cabal of good guys tries way to shelter her. How do we know they’re the good guys? Because their leader (Delroy Lindo) declares, “We’re the good guys.” Their mission includes freeing Tate (Jake McLaughlin), a tough but deep-down nice guy from death row, just to look after Bo. Did I mention that they break Tate out of the joint just seconds before his scheduled execution? The pilot ends with Bo and Tate on the run, cracking wise and bonding tight. But not before cute-as-a-button Bo helps a wayward doctor find his true mission: saving the life of a street busker, an adorable, faux-bohemian singer destined to bring joy to all who hear her voice! Only a cynic would suggest that she really seems destined to sing the next jingle for McDonald’s. And how can you be cynical and enjoy a show called “Believe”? Tonight’s other highlights

“Dora the Explorer” (6 p.m., Nickelodeon) celebrates “Alice in Wonderland.”

National security concerns on “Bones” (7 p.m., Fox), which returns to Monday nights.

Compromised security on “Intelligence” (9 p.m., CBS).

Catherine remains sidelined on “Those Who Kill” (9 p.m., A&E).

BIRTHDAYS Talk show host Ralph Emery is 81. Actor Chuck Norris is 74. Actress Sharon Stone is 56. Rock musician Gail Greenwood is 54. Britain’s Prince Edward is 50. Rapper-producer Timbaland is 42. Singer Robin Thicke is 37. Country singer Carrie Underwood is 31.

much for sharing your story. We hope our readers will take your advice and check for screenings in their area or discuss their kidney health with their personal physicians. We are sure your letter will help many. Bless you. Dear Annie: We are in our late 60s. We have four children, and between them, there are 10 grandchildren, ages 2-15. They all live far away, so we don’t get to see them often. For Christmas and birthdays, we spend quite a bit of time and money buying, ordering, wrapping and mailing presents. We never receive a thank-you note, even when we include a self-addressed envelope. We know you’ve addressed this issue many times. We don’t want to stop sending presents altogether. Should we

JACQUELINE BIGAR’S STARS

For Monday, March 10: This year a lot happens very quickly in your life. You barely have enough time to adjust to one surprise before another one pops again. If you are single, you might nearly commit several times, possibly to different people. If you are attached, the two of you enjoy a more playful and fun time together. The stars show the kind of day you’ll have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult Aries (March 21-April 19)  You have a flair for creating tension, as people find you to be unpredictable. Tonight: Do some yoga or take a walk. Taurus (April 20-May 20)  How you handle the key people in your daily environment reflects who you are. Tonight: Hang out. Gemini (May 21-June 20)  You are likely to discover how difficult a situation can be, especially if it revolves around a friend or loved one. Tonight: Pay bills first. Cancer (June 21-July 22)  While others play out their Monday-itis, you seem to be full of unusual and effective ideas. Tonight: Only as you like it. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)  You might not want to share too many of your thoughts right now; instead, listen carefully to a partner or friend. Tonight: Not wanting to socialize.

send a check and stop spending so much energy on gifts? Should we discuss it with the parents, even though we suspect that would create problems? — Frustrated Grandparents Dear Frustrated: It’s perfectly OK to call the parents (and any grandchild) to ask whether your gift was received, saying you worried it was lost en route. Young children need to be taught to thank those who are kind enough to remember them with gifts, and you can try to instill this, even though it is really the parents’ job. And if it would make you feel less put out to send a check, we doubt they would mind. — Send questions to anniesmailbox@comcast.net, or Annie’s Mailbox, P.O. Box 118190 Chicago, IL 60611.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)  You seem to know what to do in order to achieve specific results. You will like what’s about to happen. Tonight: Make plans with a friend. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)  Others expect you to come to the rescue for them when they aren’t able to help themselves. Tonight: Do something just for you.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)  Someone gladly would take up all of your time and attention, if you would allow it. Tonight: Say “yes” to an invitation. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)  Others can’t seem to get enough of you. However, you have a strong need to go a certain way. Tonight: Carve out the correct situation for you. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)  Incoming news could shock you, or you could surprise someone else. Tonight: In the whirlwind of living. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)  You could be taken aback by a sudden and unexpected financial change. Tonight: Act like there is no tomorrow. — The astrological forecast should be read for entertainment only.
