Talk of graduate hours cut prompts alarm By Ben Unglesbee Twitter: @LJW_KU

ack when I was much more of a rookie on this job, there was a particular city board that I became intrigued with: the Special Alcohol Advisory Board. I’m not certain that was its official name, but it was what everybody referred to it as, and I was certain of this: There was no special alcohol involved with the city and county commission meetings I was covering every blessed week. It was clear, that’s the board I need to be covering. Come to find out, the Special Alcohol Advisory Board is not as much fun as it sounds. It simply makes

recommendations on how the city should spend the proceeds of a special tax the state charges on alcohol. The Special Alcohol Ad-

visory Board is no more. It has morphed into something called the Social Service Funding Advisory Board. (I don’t think the name change had anything to do with the scene I made when learning of the Special Alcohol Board’s true purpose, but I can’t be for sure.) But fear not. If you like to give advice, Lawrence and Douglas County is your type of place. And apparently, there are a lot of you who do like to give advice. The city has 47 advisory boards or task forces and makes appointments to fill about 360 spots on both its own boards and joint boards on which the city has representation.

The county has about 30 advisory boards and appoints about 150 members. City and county officials came together recently to honor all the people who serve on those boards with a catered reception at the Cider Gallery in East Lawrence. “So many of our meetings and your meetings are full of mundane items,” Douglas County Commissioner Nancy Thellman told the crowd. “But it is amazing how those mundane items add up to something that is really important.” What’s mundane to one person, though, is a riveting

Kansas University graduate students are sounding alarms over a proposal within the university that could cut back how many hours they can work on campus. The university has said the possibility has been brought up as part of ongoing, and still early, discussions within university administration about how to adapt to health care reform. KANSAS The students are UNIVERSITY worried specifically about an email that surfaced with what appears to be a proposed policy to limit the total number of hours students can work on campus to 20 hours per week, down from the current cutoff for many students of 30. For some, that would represent a sizable hit to their incomes, already low for many graduate teaching and research assistants. To convince administration to keep the current rules intact, some graduate students have drawn up petitions and

Student mental health programs mostly absent from district By Giles Bruce Twitter: @GilesBruce

Megan Smith thought suicide was the only thing that could give her inner peace. But since she got good grades and always showed up to class, her teachers at Lawrence’s Central Middle School assumed she was simply a perfectionist. That’s when a social worker with the Working to Recognize Alternative Possibilities program, or WRAP, recognized there was more to what Smith was going through, and got her into Bert

mental illnesses at an early age. At one time, WRAP had a social worker in every school in the Lawrence district. But that changed in 2008, when the school district ($250,000) and city of Lawrence ($350,000) discontinued their funding, causing WRAP to cut 11 positions; only the county ($225,000) has kept funding it year in and year out. The program is now down to

At the county, we see the consequences of not addressing things like mental health earlier in life — our involvement with the courts and Douglas County corrections — and the importance of working at the preventive level rather than the treatment level.”

Memorial services for Donald W. Tiffany, 83, Lawrence will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Tuesday, March 18, 2014 at Lawrence First Presbyterian Church. Private inurnment will be held at Memorial Park Cemetery. He died Friday, March 14, 2014 at Lawrence Memorial Hospital. Donald was born the second of five children in St. Louis, MO on May 24, 1930 to Murray Lee and Vera (Paul) Tiffany. During his childhood he moved with his family to Tulsa, Oklahoma, Houston, Texas, San Diego, California and returned to Maplewood, MO when he was 10. After high school he attended Drury University, where he completed his B.A. in Psychology. He was drafted by the U.S. Army and served for two years as a PFC at the Disciplinary Barracks at Fort Leavenworth. After his military service he worked in several VA and state hospitals while completing his Ph.D. in clinical psychology at the University of Kansas in 1965. In 1961 he married, Phyllis Guthrie, his fellow student at KU. In 1965 he took a position with Institue for Community Studies in K.C., MO and moved his family to Kansas City. In 1970 they moved to Hays, Kansas where he became chief psychologist at High Plains Community Mental Health Center. In 1978 Dr. Tiffany opened his own private practice in Hays until 1990.

campaign.

Adapting to health care reform KU Provost Jeffrey Vitter declined an interview request on the subject. KU spokesman Gavin Young said KU administration and human resources have been discussing how KU will respond to the Affordable Care Act’s employer mandate to provide health insurance for all employees working 30 hours a week or more. Young had few specific details to provide. He said the university is still determining how the 30-hour-a-week definition of full-time employment in the health care law will apply to graduate assistants, and what the cost of insuring graduate student workers would be. KU is also waiting on guidance from the state insurance program. “I think the whole conversation is very premature,” Young said.

KU is not alone among universities trying to figure out how to adapt to health care reform. According to the College and University Professional Association for Human Resources, the federal government has not specifically addressed how graduate teaching and research assistants fit into the law. The University of Alabama has already moved to limit graduate assistant hours to 20 per week to avoid paying for insurance under the health care law — a fact that has fueled concern at KU.

peals; Mechanical Board of Appeals; Plumbing Code Board of Appeals; and the TV Remote Control Board of Appeals. All right, you caught me. I made that last one up, but the rest are real, and most of them have both a city and a county version of the board.

‘We really firmly oppose this policy’ In 2013, KU employed about 1,100 teaching assistants and 640 research assistants, according to the KU public affairs office. For students with those assistantships, most work 20 hours per week under the terms of the appoint-

ment. At an average pay of between $15,000 and $16,000 for a nine-month appointment, the assistantships don’t provide enough income for many students. Meredith Wiggins, a graduate student in English, works as a teaching assistant in her department and puts in extra hours at the journalism school’s Bremner Editing Center. “A number of us have second jobs on campus that go beyond” the assistantship, Wiggins said. “A lot of us rely on that money to make ends meet.” Wiggins has helped draft the student petition to block any added limit of hours. “We really firmly oppose this policy,” she said. English doctoral student Jennifer Colatosti is in a similar position to Wiggins. She is a teaching assistant and also works as a consultant at the

KU Writing Center. Under a 20-hour limit, she would have to quit her job at the Writing Center, which would be “effectively cutting out $400 of my monthly budget,” she said. “And that’s significant.” Other graduate students cobble together hourly jobs, which means they don’t have the benefit of a tuition waiver that comes with an assistantship. They too might have to quit their second jobs if new limits were in place. In that boat is Pantaleon Florez III, who has also been active in organizing the petition drive. Florez, a master’s student in the School of Education, works as the graduate affairs director for the Student Senate and also tutors through KU Athletics for an extra 10 hours a week. Florez said last year he beat the poverty line by about $580. “Taking the 10-hour position away from me would put me literally below the poverty line,” he said. — Reporter Ben Unglesbee can be reached at 832-7173 or by email at bunglesbee@ljworld.com.

BRIEFLY Pittsburg — Two Pittsburg State University engineering students are building an easy-toassemble shelter they hope will someday be used by refugees and disaster victims around the world. The Joplin Globe reports Austin Leake, of Independence, and Cody Frieden, of Lamar, Mo., will enter their design next month in a national contest in Arkansas. The World Vision/John Brown University Disaster Shelter Design Competition offers a $1,000 prize. But just as important to Leake and Frieden, the winning design will also be given to World Vision to use in building shelters for refugees in Syria. The contest has strict requirements. Each shelter must house four people, be lightweight and cost a maximum $1,500 to produce, and withstand earthquakes and high wind. It must also require no tools or special knowledge to assemble.

Crow Feather said while staff was great about helping students who, for example, came from poor high schools and required remedial classes, he noticed there weren’t a lot of their own peers reaching out to them. And while Haskell had an LGBT club in the past, it wasn’t active when Crow Feather arrived on campus.

Crow Feather’s resume also includes launching Haskell’s Social Work Club and its HIV/AIDS awareness week, which has become an annual campus event, he said. Crow Feather said Haskell has been a place of healing for him. He’s on track to finish his bachelor’s degree in indigenous and American Indian studies with an emphasis on social welfare in May and has made the honor roll every semester. Next, he hopes to pursue master’s degrees in indigenous governance and counseling psychology at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver. He wants a career that will allow him to interact with indigenous people, possibly even returning to Haskell in the future. “I’ve gotten a lot more here than just an education,” Crow Feather said. “I feel like I really have a solid foundation going forward.” — Enterprise reporter Sara Shepherd can be reached at sshepherd@ljworld.com or 832-7187.

Construction to close part of 19th Street J-W Staff Reports

Lawrence l 19th Street from Naismith Drive to Ousdahl Road will be closed to traffic from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. during the week of March 17. A private plumbing company has requested to close the street to install a new water line. Northbound and southbound traffic on Naismith Drive will not be affected. Motorists can use 23rd Street for east-west traffic during the closure. l The annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade begins at 1 p.m. Monday at South Park in downtown Lawrence and travels north on Massachusetts Street, across the Kansas River Bridge, into north Lawrence. There will be transit reroutes and road closures in downtown to accommodate the parade. More rerouting information is on lawrencetransit. org. l Contractors are installing two new force mains, by horizontal directional drilling from the Kaw Wastewater Treatment Plant to Pump Station No. 04 in North Lawrence. The intersection of Eighth and Walnut streets is expected to remain closed until the end of the project in July. Detour signs have been posted in the area of Eighth and Walnut streets to accommodate for local traffic as well as park and boat ramp visitors. Barriers will be installed to detour traffic as necessary within the project schedule. Traffic will be rerouted to Elm Street, Oak Street or Ash Street. l The intersection of North 1500 Road (E. 15th Street extended) and Noria Road (East 1750 Road) will be closed from 6 p.m., March 21, until March 23 for pavement reconstruction, weather permitting. The existing chip sealed pavement in the intersection will be removed and replaced with concrete pavement. In the event of inclement weather March 21-23, con-

struction will be rescheduled to the following weekend, March 28-30. l An area in Burcham Park will be fenced off with no public access to the river bank, parking and playground equipment areas during construction of the Kaw Water Treatment Plant Raw Water Intake project. Temporary access to the Kansas University Boathouse and park shelter area have been constructed around the work area. The access restrictions are expected to remain in place until work is completed in July 2014. l Because of the renovation and expansion of the Lawrence Public Library, there are intermittent closures in the 700 block of Vermont and Kentucky streets when crews need to unload materials for construction. l During normal working hours, Ridge Court, south of 27th Street, will be closed and traffic will be detoured to Redbud Lane for access to the southern portion of Ridge Court. Overnight, traffic will be limited to one lane of either access or exit to 27th Street. Project will begin on March 17 and continue for three weeks. l Because of a road closure in the 900 block of New Hampshire Street, a public transit route (7) is being detoured as follows: Southbound on New Hampshire Street to Ninth Street, left on Ninth Street, right on Connecticut Street, right on 11th Street, left on Massachusetts Street and back to the normal route. The closure is expected to last through March. l The utilities department is working on a water main on Maple Lane from E. 19th Street to E. 21st Street. There will be no parking and the road will be closed to through traffic, Monday through Friday, from 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. l Banks Construction is replacing a water line on the north side of 23rd Street from Iowa Street to Ousdahl Road. Throughout

construction, 23rd Street will remain open to traffic. The existing median at the northeast corner of 23rd and Iowa Streets will be modified to allow righthand turns without using the dedicated right-hand turn lane. The dedicated right turn lane from westbound 23rd Street to northbound Iowa Street will be closed for the duration of the project. Westbound 23rd Street will be reduced to one lane from Ousdahl Road to the east entrance to the shopping center at the northeast corner of 23rd and Iowa streets. l Westland Construction is replacing a water line on the west side of North Iowa Street from Riverridge to Lakeview Road. North Iowa Street will remain open to twoway traffic throughout construction. The westernmost lane of southbound North Iowa Street from River Ridge Road to Lakeview Road will be closed to allow for installation of the water line. Access to southbound North Iowa Street from eastbound Kresge Road will be temporarily restricted.

South Lawrence Trafficway l In December, a threeyear construction project began to complete the six-mile, four-lane Kansas Highway 10/South Lawrence Trafficway freeway. The project will move existing K-10 onto a new alignment that will begin at the south junction of the U.S. 59 and K-10 interchange and reconnect with existing K-10 in East Lawrence. Construction work on the project will be completed in phases. Each phase includes specific work and advance notification will be sent under separate cover for each phase of construction, including planned traffic impacts.

An 18-year-old Lawrence man was arrested early Saturday morning for aggravated sexual battery on the Kansas University campus. Capt. James Anguiano said the Kansas University Public Safety Office responded to a call in Ellsworth Hall at 1:43

Officials warn of fire safety magnet scam By Ashleigh Tidwell atidwell@ljworld.com

Lawrence-Douglas County Fire Medical is warning local medical offices of a new scam claiming to sell advertisements. Fire Medical received calls Friday from two lo-

the two high schools and two of the four junior highs (Liberty Memorial Central and South). “At the county, we see the consequences of not addressing things like mental health earlier in life — our involvement with the courts and Douglas County corrections — and the importance of working at the preventive level rather than the treatment level,” said County Commissioner Mike Gaughan. In Kansas, while about 19,000 students between 12 and 17 have a major depressive episode each year, only about 38 percent receive treatment for it, according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

cal medical offices that had been contacted by a sales representative from a “Fire Safety Magnet” program. The representative claimed to be selling advertising on a fire safety magnet. According to a news release, the scammer

is trying to gain sales by saying, “Lawrence firefighters voted on your office to represent (a specific) category.” The news release also states that the websites being used in this scam are FireSafetyMagnets. com and firehousepro-

motionsinc.com. Fire Medical does not endorse this program and considers it a scam. Anyone who is targeted by this scam is asked to report the call to the District Attorney’s Consumer Protection Division at 330-2849.

“Mental illnesses are such a factor in youth, but the younger you are the less likely you are to get treatment,” said Bert Nash CEO David Johnson. “It really is a shame if we have to wait until our prisons are filling up with people who are mentally ill, people on the streets who are mentally ill. It’s too bad we can’t really have a focus on children, when we can maybe prevent it or intervene.” Bert Nash is now admitting about 25 percent fewer students than it did when WRAP was in all the Lawrence public schools, Johnson added. “The school district is interested in perhaps a broader conversation about how to provide mental health to kiddos, not necessarily just the WRAP program,” said Rick Doll, superintendent of the Lawrence school district, adding that tack-

ling mental health is the responsibility not just of the school district but the community as a whole. “We’re engaged with Bert Nash in conversations about what that could look like.” WRAP has been in the Eudora school district for the past six years, under a federal grant. Officials credit the program with helping reduce the number of students who come to school under the influence of drugs or alcohol or armed with a handgun. But with that federal grant set to expire, Eudora schools superintendent Don Grosdidier said he doesn’t expect the program to continue unless another agency steps up to fund it. Smith, now 25 and living in Lecompton, can’t imagine what her life would be like had the WRAP program not been at Central Middle School when she was a student there.

Through therapy and medications, which she’s now off, Smith has become a productive adult. Recently, she graduated from a local community college, where she received straight A’s. She provided the sound engineering, her hopeful career field, for a Kansas City performance by cabaret singer Marilyn Maye. And, not least of all, she and her husband welcomed their first child to the world. “It was all because of the support and help that I was able to get where I am today,” Smith said, as she fed 4-month-old Liam on a recent day at a Lawrence coffee shop. “I think the world would be a different place if we had more of that kind of support out there, that kind of help.” — Reporter Giles Bruce can be reached at 832-7233.

LOB lifeline Kansas legislators have some time to examine the state’s school finance formula, but they must act now to avoid a devastating funding loss to Kansas schools next year.

T

he Kansas Supreme Court’s recent ruling on school finance may have a significant long-term impact on how the state funds K-12 schools across the state. However, the ruling also handed legislators another urgent issue that it must handle now in order to avoid a major funding disruption for the next fiscal year. House Speaker Ray Merrick has wisely advised legislators not to try to rewrite the state’s complicated school funding formula before the end of the session in May. Trying to rush action on the formula, he contended, could cause lawmakers to “end up making a lot of mistakes.” The issue, however, that legislators must deal with by July 1 — and hopefully before the end of the current session — deals with equalizing school district funding through their local option budgets (LOB’s). Individual school districts are allowed to supplement their budgets by establishing LOB’s that are funded by local property taxes. The amount raised in local property taxes varies according to how wealthy the districts are, and the state uses a formula to supplement LOB’s for poorer districts that need that help. For instance, the Lawrence district received $3.6 million from the state toward its $23.4 million LOB this year; Eudora received $1.6 million, more than half of its total $3.1 million LOB. However, since the Great Recession, the state hasn’t fully funded its LOB obligation to any state school district. That, according to the court ruling, has resulted in a growing inequity between richer and poorer districts in the state. Therefore, the court said, the state must either correct that inequity by fully funding LOBs or find another way to correct the discrepancy. If it does not, the three-judge panel overseeing the school finance case has been ordered to completely discontinue the LOB program across the state or “enter such other orders as it deems appropriate.” As Merrick has pointed out, the Legislature really doesn’t have time to come up with another equalization strategy. However, dropping the LOB program entirely would be devastating. According to a veteran Kansas Department of Education staff member, dropping LOB’s would cost school districts across the state up to $1 billion or about 25 percent of their total operating budgets. State education officials have estimated it would cost about $129 million to satisfy the court’s option of fully funding LOB’s for the next year. That’s a significant, but not overwhelming, amount of money to find in the state budget. Whether or not legislators think the LOB program will be part of the state’s long-term school funding strategy, they should look at that $129 million as a short-term life preserver for Kansas schools. Legislators have time to study the complicated school finance formula but, for now, they need to take the relatively simple action of warding off a court action that could severely handicap public education in the state next year.

U.S. needs alternate strategy in Syria Washington — With the Ukraine crisis, any fleeting hope that the U.S. and Russia could soon broker a political settlement in Syria has vanished. The U.S. needs an alternate strategy for strengthening Syrian moderates who can resist both the brutal Bashar alAssad regime and al-Qaida extremists. A new Syrian opposition leader who may help get the balance right is Jamal Maarouf. He heads a group called the Syria Revolutionaries Front and is the leading moderate rebel commander in the north. I spoke Thursday by phone with Maarouf, who was near the SyriaTurkey border. He outlined a two-pronged strategy that sounded more pragmatic than anything I’ve heard from the opposition in recent months. Maarouf says his forces must simultaneously fight Assad’s army and the fighters from Jabhat al-Nusra and the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, two jihadist groups with al-Qaida roots. That’s easier said than done, but Maarouf has actually accomplished it in his home region of Idlib. His fighters drove Assad’s army from Maarat al-Numan, a town in central Idlib, back in October 2012, and two months ago they expelled ISIS jihadists from the area. The Syrian rebel commander has widened the anti-jihadist fight. His forces expelled ISIS from northern Aleppo province and are now seeking to clear eastern Aleppo. They have just driv-

The U.S. is right to worry that such powerful weapons could fall into the wrong hands. But Maarouf appears to be the kind of commander the U.S. and its allies will need to trust …” en the extremists from their staging area of Darkush, along the Turkish border. If he can get enough money and weapons, he wants to take the fight further east to the extremist strongholds of Raqqah and Deir al-Zour. Maarouf, 39, is an example of the younger generation of commanders in the bottomup Syrian revolution. The previous Free Syrian Army leader in the north, Gen. Salim Idriss, was a thoughtful, German-educated former professor at a Syrian war college. By contrast, Maarouf is high-school graduate who served in a tank unit during his two-year mandatory service in the Syrian army and then worked in construction in Lebanon. Maarouf appears to have two qualities that have often been missing among the

Syrian opposition. First, he has been a successful field commander. Second, and perhaps more important, he talks like a genuinely moderate man who hasn’t succumbed to the sectarian poison that has infected much of the opposition. He says many members of the regime army are “sons of Syria,” too, and that after the war ends, there must be national reconciliation. I asked Maarouf, a Sunni Muslim, what he would say to his Alawite neighbors. “All of the Syrian people have the right to live and be free in Syria,” with no discrimination between Sunni and Alawite, he answered. After Assad is replaced as president, he continued, some Syrians should be prosecuted for war crimes — including Sunni extremists who have slaughtered Alawite civilians, as well as regime fighters who killed Sunnis. That’s a message that Syrians need to hear. Corrupt warlords have plundered the northern areas “liberated” by the rebels from Assad, and public anger at this thievery helped al-Qaida forces gain recruits. Here, again, Maarouf offered sound strategies: In the areas of Idlib his fighters control, he says he has established courts and prisons to suppress crime, and tried to restore public services where possible. He can’t reopen schools, he cautions, because of fears that the regime would bomb the children gathered for classes. The Obama administration is weighing whether to

expand its aid for the moderate opposition. The CIA is now training about 250 fighters a month in Jordan; these fighters operate mostly in southern Syria under the FSA’s overall commander, Abdul-Illah al-Bashir, who is from Quneitra near the Israel border. Opposition supporters want to double this training program by establishing a camp at an air base in a friendly Gulf state where U.S. Special Forces soldiers could train and equip FSA fighters for counterterrorism operations. This expansion of training makes sense; President Obama should approve it. Syrian moderate fighters will need better weapons to protect civilians from Assad’s forces and extremists, alike. The opposition has made a reasonable request for heavy-caliber machine guns that could attack Syrian helicopters. Meanwhile, Saudi Arabia is ready to supply shoulderfired missiles that could shoot down Syrian fighter jets. The missiles are in Jordan, awaiting U.S. approval for distribution. The U.S. is right to worry that such powerful weapons could fall into the wrong hands. But Maarouf appears to be the kind of commander the U.S. and its allies will need to trust — and provide with enough firepower to protect Syrian civilians and fight extremists — in the long wait for a political solution to this horrifying conflict. — David Ignatius is a columnist for Washington Post Writers Group.

Stop making excuses for Bieber It’s your fault Justin Bieber is a jerk. That’s the contention of attorney Roy Black, who is defending the 20-yearold singer on a DUI charge stemming from a Jan. 23 arrest in Miami Beach. Black spoke to reporters last week as video of Bieber’s deposition in the case of an alleged assault by one of his bodyguards — you can’t keep this young man’s legal woes straight without a scorecard — was making the rounds on the Internet. It was not a pretty picture. Bieber comes across as a twerp so snotty and insolent even Mother Teresa would want to smack him. It’s been suggested that opposing counsel baited Bieber by asking provocative questions unrelated to the matter at hand, such as his on-and-off relationship with Selena Gomez. But so what? A deposition is a fishing expedition, and opposing counsel is allowed wide latitude in asking questions. The defendant’s best strategy is to keep calm and answer as briefly as possible. Presumably, this was all explained to Bieber before he was deposed, but if so, the advice did not take. He preens, he parries, he oozes with visceral contempt for

What we see in Bieber, then, seems to say less about celebrity than about one of its unfortunate byproducts: entitlement.” the entire process. Asked if his mentor, the singer Usher, was instrumental to his career he replies, “I was found on YouTube. I think that I was detrimental to my own career.” Rarely have ignorance and arrogance ever combined so flawlessly to produce unintended truth. But again, Roy Black says if you want to blame anyone for what Justin Bieber is, blame us and our culture of celebrity worship. “We love it when people start becoming successful,” he told reporters, “But once they actually are highly suc-

cessful, we do almost everything we can to destroy their lives. And Justin Bieber’s case is just one of many. He has absolutely no privacy. He is harassed by photographers or paparazzi — whatever you want to call them — at every turn.” It is an intriguing argument in that it contains just enough truth to give you pause. Our celebrity mania does drive an industry of intrusion. Famous people do live under siege. On the other hand, Bieber is hardly the first person to be famous — or, for that matter, to become famous while young. And while that proves toxic for some — think Britney Spears and Michael Jackson — others seem to handle it just fine. Where are the headlines about a drunken Justin Timberlake peeing into a janitor’s bucket or pelting a neighbor’s house with eggs? Where are the stories of New Kids on the Block brawling with photographers or closing off a public street to go drag racing? What we see in Bieber, then, seems to say less about celebrity than about one of its unfortunate byproducts: entitlement. Has anyone ever held this kid accountable for anything?

Consider that when he was popped in Miami, young model Ireland Baldwin tweeted, “We’re all human.” When cops investigated him on charges of reckless driving, Usher said, “He’s a teenager …” When drugs were found on his tour bus, Will Smith said, “These are things that are just simple and normal for a 19-year-old to do …” But would they be so quick to make excuses if it were Justin Jones behaving as if the world were his toilet and the rules did not apply? Now here’s Black, saying Bieber’s behavior is our fault. Maybe, but not in the way he suggests. If one of the least attractive byproducts of celebrity is that it brings public intrusion into private lives, another is that it can induce people to treat the famous person as if his waste products produce no odor. If you are treated that way, there’s a good chance you will behave that way. Bieber’s deposition is Exhibit A. So if people really want to help this kid, the answer is simple: Stop making excuses for him. — Leonard Pitts Jr., winner of the 2004 Pulitzer Prize for commentary, is a columnist for the Miami Herald.

A FOAM PLANE and cards with personalized messages dedicated to people involved with the missing Malaysia Airlines jetliner MH370 are placed in the viewing gallery Saturday at Kuala Lumpur International Airport in Sepang, Malaysia.

Malaysian leader: Plane’s disappearance deliberate By Eileen Ng and Ian Mader Associated Press

Kuala Lumpur, Malay— Someone deliberately diverted Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 and shut down communications with the ground, and the jetliner continued flying for six hours, Razak Malaysia’s prime minister said Saturday. The announcement shifted the focus of the investigation to the crew and passengers on the plane, which has now been missing for more than a week. sia

Prime Minister Najib Razak’s statement also meant the flight path of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 to Beijing could have strayed as far as the southern Indian Ocean or northwest to Kazakhstan, complicating the work of search crews who already have been scouring vast stretches of ocean seeking the plane’s 12-person crew and 227 passengers. “Clearly the search for MH370 has entered a new phase,” Najib said at a televised news conference. “It is widely understood that this has been a situation without precedent.” Experts have previously said that whoever disabled the plane’s communication systems and then flew the jet must have had a high degree of technical knowledge and flying ex-

perience. One possibility they have raised was that one of the pilots wanted to commit suicide. Najib stressed that investigators were looking into all possibilities as to why the Boeing 777 deviated so drastically from its original flight path, saying authorities could not confirm whether it was a hijacking. Earlier Saturday, a Malaysian official said the plane had been hijacked, though he added that no motive had been established and no demands had been made known. “In view of this latest development, the Malaysian authorities have refocused their investigation into the crew and passengers on board,” Najib told reporters, reading from a written statement but not taking any questions.

Ukraine says Russian forces move outside of Crimea By Jim Heintz and Mike Eckel Associated Press

Simeropol, Ukraine — Russian forces backed by helicopter gunships and armored vehicles Saturday took control of a village near the border with Crimea on the eve of a referendum on whether the region should seek annexation by Moscow, Ukrainian officials said. The action in Strilkove appeared to be the first move outside Crimea, where Russian forces

have been in effective control since late last month. There were no reports of gunfire or injuries. The incident raises tensions already at a high level before Sunday’s referendum. In a statement, the Foreign Ministry denounced the foray outside Crimea, and said Ukraine “reserves the right to use all necessary measures to stop the military invasion by Russia.” The village is on a long spit reaching northward from the main part of

the Black Sea peninsula, about six miles north of the border between Crimea and the Kherson region. A spokesman for the Ukrainian border guard service, Oleg Slobodyan, told The Associated Press the Russians, about 120 in all, took control of a natural gas distribution station in the village. The Foreign Ministry said the force consisted of about 80 and didn’t mention the station, but said the village was seized.

and detonate another in a controlled explosion. The military blamed the Muslim Brotherhood for the attack and said they had planted the additional bombs to target rescue workers rushing to the scene.

BRIEFLY Syria conflict marks third anniversary Beriut — Syrian troops advanced in a major rebel-held town near the Lebanese border amid heavy bombardment from warplanes, artillery and tanks as the country’s bloody conflict marked its third anniversary Saturday, state media and activists said. The conflict, which began amid Arab Spring protests across the region, started off as protests that turned into an armed insurgency and eventually became a full-blown civil war that activists say has killed more than 140,000 people and has seen 2 million people flee the country. Peace talks between the government of President Bashar Assad and Syria’s divided opposition haven’t found a diplomatic solution to the crisis. The main Westernbacked opposition group, the Syrian National Coalition, vowed in a statement Saturday marking the conflict’s third anniver-

sary “to bring down the Assad regime that is the main source of the Syrian people’s suffering.”

6 Egyptian soldiers killed at checkpoint Cairo — Gunmen stormed an Egyptian army checkpoint outside Cairo early Saturday morning and killed six soldiers, including some still in their beds, officials said, in what amounted to an escalation by militants on military targets near the capital.

U.S. goes high-tech to oversee Afghan aid Washington — The main U.S. foreign assistance agency wants to step up use of smartphones, satellite imagery and GPS cameras to oversee tax-funded development projects in Afghanistan that aid workers no longer will be able to observe firsthand as American troops leave the country. The U.S. Agency for International Development on Saturday began seeking bids on a monitoring project contract that could cost up to $170 million. The agency hopes the five-year project will allow aid work to continue in Afghanistan despite the troop drawdown and will satisfy lawmakers and others who have criticized the agency for weak monitoring.

Kansas: Semi setback history By Gary Bedore gbedore@ljworld.com

None of Kansas University’s basketball players or coaches will be thinking about Friday’s Big 12 tournament semifinal loss to Iowa State when they gather at 5 p.m. today in Allen Fieldhouse to watch CBS-TV’s NCAA Tournament Selection Sunday show.

By Sunday at 5, it doesn’t matter. It’s over,” KU coach Bill Self said. “A couple years ago, we lost to Baylor in the second round and had a pretty good run in the (NCAA) tournament after that and made it to the finals (losing to Kentucky in 2012 title game). In all honesty, it’s time to really try to have some fun and do something to prolong our season as long as we possibly can.” KU sophomore Perry Ellis has enjoyed one Selection Sunday as a college player. Is it one of the most exciting days of the season? “It is,” Ellis said. “To see where we are at ... to see who we get to play, it is.” ESPN’s Joe Lunardi on Saturday had KU as a No. 2 seed in the Midwest regional, ticketed for a second-round game against Milwaukee in St. Louis. He has the winner of that game playing hometown school Saint Louis or Iowa for the right to go to the Sweet 16 in Indianapolis. Self was asked if it would be better for his 24-9 squad to be a “high 2-seed” than the last of the No. 1s. “We’re not going to be a 1,” Self said, “so I’m going to tell you it’s definitely better since we’re not going to be

KANSAS UNIVERSITY MEN’S BASKETBALL STRENGTH COACH ANDREA HUDY, TOP, stretches out one-and-done KU freshman Andrew Wiggins prior to a recent game.

Strength coach Hudy consistent By Matt Tait mtait@ljworld.com

To the naked eye, Kansas University freshmen Conner Frankamp and Andrew Wiggins are about as different as can be. But through the finely trained eyes of those in charge of bulking up and

working out the KU basketball roster, the two are exactly alike. Although Wiggins has eight inches, 35 pounds and a fast-arriving NBA future on Frankamp, the two have been trained the same during their time as Jayhawks. It’s strength coach Andrea Hudy’s job to ensure that, and

she follows Kansas coach Bill Self’s lead to make it happen. “The thing is, everybody plays defense in basketball,” Hudy said during a recent sit-down interview with the Journal-World designed to investigate any differences between training one-and-done Please see HUDY, page 4B

Park City — Eudora High senior Andrew Ballock and his freshman brother Mitchell Ballock knew the Class 4A-II state basketball championship contest would be their last game together as teammates. They left everybody wanting more. Mitchell Ballock scored a team-high 20 points, while Andrew chipped in 19 as the Cardinals beat Scott City, 71-58, to win their first state title in school history on Saturday night at Hartman Arena. The Cardinals finished with a 20-5 record. “It’s bittersweet, but it was nice to get a state title. I’ve been wanting one of those for a long time in any sport,” said Andrew Ballock, who also had six rebounds and five assists. “It’s just been fun playing with (Mitchell) all year and fun playing with our team. I’m going to miss a lot of those guys. I love this team.” Eudora’s 13-point lead at halftime dwindled to two points after the Beavers (214), who entered the season as a three-time defending state champion in Class 3A, went on a 21-5 run over the last 5:45 of the third quarter. The Cardinals turned the ball over on their first possession of the fourth quarter before Mitchell Ballock blocked a shot on the defensive end and made a turnaround jumper in the low post. Scott City junior Brett Meyer responded with a three-pointer, and Eudora sophomore Austin Downing answered, converting a layup while drawing the foul and making the free throw. The Beavers added another bucket on the next possession before the Cardinals started a 16-5 run to end the game. “Basketball is a game of runs, so you just have to keep your composure and keep playing,” Mitchell Ballock said. “We kept playing, started hitting some shots, getting to the rim and played some solid defense.” Andrew Ballock started the decisive run with a layup before Zachary Scroggin made two free throws, and Mitchell Ballock followed up a missed dunk Please see EUDORA, page 3B

Manning coaches Tulsa back into NCAA Tournament Manning

El Paso, Texas (ap) — Danny Manning is taking Tulsa back to the NCAA Tournament. James Woodard scored 27 points to lead the Golden Hurricane to its first NCAA

berth since 2003 with a 69-60 victory Saturday against Louisiana Tech in the Conference USA tournament final. “It’s an indescribable feeling,” said Woodard, who is from Tulsa. “Growing

up as a kid, you can’t wait for March Madness. To be a part of that, this time around, and for us being so young as a team, it’s definitely a dream come true.” Woodard, who scored 18

points in the second half, made seven of eight free throws down the stretch to help Tulsa hold off the Bulldogs. Tulsa (21-12), which was the No. 2 seed, will carry an 11-game win streak into the

tournament. Top-seeded Louisiana Tech came up short, extending an NCAA tournament drought dating to 1991. Please see TULSA, page 5B

with a rebound and a layup. Meyer hit another three-pointer to cut Eudora’s lead to 61-56 with 4:17 remaining, but Andrew Ballock grabbed a steal on Scott City’s next possession and ran past the defense for a layup. The Beavers wouldn’t get closer as the Cardinals then hit six free throws down the stretch. “The crowd was getting us into it,” Andrew Ballock said. “Our team was amped up, and that just started our run. We said in the timeouts that we just need to lock up and get stops, and we’re going to win this game, and that’s what we did.” Eudora coach Kyle Deterding added: “Those kids played their tails off, man.

cially on the defensive end of the floor.” Andrew Ballock scored 11 points in the first quarter on 5-of-7 shooting before Mitchell added 10 points in the second quarter, helping the Cardinals to a 36-23 halftime lead. Eudora extended its lead to 18 points with a 9-4 run to open the second half, highlighted by senior Skyler Shockley, who scored five points over three possessions. “It’s a great accomplishment,” said Downing, who scored 14 points. “We worked all year knowing that we wanted to get here, and then to finally get here, it’s amazing.”

Park City — Santa Fe Trail High’s girls basketball team fought back from an 11-point deficit in the Class 4A-II state championship game Saturday afternoon, only to watch Frontenac tie the game in the final minute with a three-pointer. That letdown didn’t affect senior Briahna Beckman, who converted a layup while drawing the foul and making the free throw to open overtime. The Chargers then made plenty of free throws in their 5854 state title victory at Hartman Arena. “It’s amazing,” senior Megan Zaldivar said. “It’s the best feeling ever.” The Chargers trailed by 11 points before senior Shelby Dahl ended a scoring drought with a buzzer-beater just inside of halfcourt. “That was definitely the changing point,” senior Amber Moore said. “We said in the huddle, ‘That was our sign. We can do it.’” It definitely ended any shooting woes as Dahl opened the fourth quarter with a three-pointer from the top of the arc before Beckman, who struggled to hit three-pointers, converted a layup. The Raiders (22-3) kept their lead at nine points with a few buckets before Zaldivar made a three-pointer to start a 9-0 run. Senior Jaeden Romine added a layup before Zaldivar, the Chargers point guard who can be lethal from deep, made

Moore traded points with the Raiders over the next minute before Zaldivar extended Santa Fe Trail’s lead to three points with two free throws. However, Frontenac’s Natalie Coomes hit a three with 46 seconds left to tie the game, and a shot attempt from

Dahl in the final seconds was blocked. After Beckman’s andone play, the Raiders missed their next shot before Dahl and Zaldivar went 6-for-6 from the charity stripe to extend their team’s lead to six with 1:20 left. Frontenac cut the score to three points in the closing seconds before Zaldivar iced the game with a free throw, scoring five of her 16 points in the extra period. “It’s awesome,” Moore said. “It’s sad and awesome because it’s my last year. I couldn’t be happier with the ending.” Dahl scored a gamehigh 19 points and added seven rebounds, while Moore, who played most of the game with four fouls, fell just short of a

double-double with nine points and nine rebounds. “When you got two studs like that, they just make plays for you all the time,” Santa Fe Trail coach Jayson Duncan said. “I step back and watch them do their thing, and they never disappoint.” The Chargers shot 24 percent in the first half (6-for-25) and trailed 2317 at halftime. “We had nerves, and that’s why we were missing so many shots,” Duncan said. “I bet we had five airballs. We didn’t have five airballs all year. We can shoot it. I said, ‘We’re going to make some shots,’ then we started to make them, and good things started to happen.” The Chargers finished the season with a 22-3 record.

KANSAS SENIOR ALEX JONES POINTS TOWARD FIRST BASE at teammate Maddie Stein after a single by Stein drove Jones home for a run during KU’s 7-0 victory over Jackson State on Saturday at Arrocha Ballpark.

Kansas softball splits pair at own tourney J-W Staff Reports

Kansas University stranded the tying run at third in the final inning of the day and lost to 14thranked Nebraska, 1-0, in the second of two games Saturday in the Jayhawk Softball Invitational at Arrocha Ballpark. After stretching their scoreless innings streak to 117 straight in a 7-0 victory earlier Saturday over Jackson State, the Jayhawks quickly fell behind NU after allowing a single run in the second.

Neither team scored again, though Kansas threatened in the seventh, after Taylor Hatfield hit a one-out double and was moved to third by Chanin Naudin. But NU pitcher Tatum Edwards (8-5) recorded her fifth strikeout of the day to end it. Kelsey Kessler (11-6) took the loss. In Saturday’s opener, Alicia Pille (7-2) pitched a complete-game one-hitter, with 10 strikeouts and just one walk. Ashley Newman and Maddie Stein each had

three hits, and Alex Jones and Hatfield contributed two apiece for the Jayhawks. Kansas 7, Jackson State 0 Jackson State 000 000 0 — 0 1 1 Kansas 201 103 x — 7 13 0 W — Alicia Pille, 7-2.

Texas slips past KU, 2-1 J-W Staff Reports

Austin, Texas — Texas scored two unearned runs in the first inning, then held on to beat Kansas University, 2-1, in Big 12 baseball on Saturday at Disch-Falk Field. No. 10-ranked UT (155, 1-1) scored all its runs in the first, on a pair of singles and a grounder to Kansas shortstop Justin Protacio in the hole that Protacio gloved. However, his one-hopper to first got past first baseman Blair Beck, and Texas had a 1-0 lead. Collin Shaw then sin-

gled in another run for a 2-0 edge. KU (13-5, 1-1) made it 2-1 in the third, when Colby Wright’s RBI single up the middle scored Protacio. Robert Kahana (1-3) took the loss. He threw a complete-game fivehitter, with no walks and four strikeouts. “I can’t tell you how proud I was after (the first inning),” KU coach Ritch Price said. “(Kahana) struggled his last outing at Stanford and needed a quality start.

BRIEFLY Kansas’ Bishop 15th in pole vault Albuquerque, N.M. — Kansas University senior Alex Bishop earned second-team All-America honors after finishing 15th in the pole vault Saturday night at the NCAA Indoor Track & Field Championships. Bishop claimed a spot on the second team for the second time in his career after also taking 15th at the NCAA Outdoor Championships last season. Bishop, a native of Scottsdale, Ariz., entered the meet having hit the 11th-best vault in the NCAA earlier this year, a personal-best clearance of 4.45 meters (17 feet, 101⁄2 inches) at the Armory Invitational on Feb. 8. Saturday, he cleared 5.30 meters (17-4 1/2). Bishop’s finish marked the third time in seven years a Jayhawk vaulter has claimed All-America honors in the indoor pole vault.

In the final team standings, the KU women were 39th with five points. KU’s men did not place. Both men’s and women’s teams will kick off the outdoor season March 2629 at the Texas Relays.

KU golfer 10th at Lady Jaguar Augusta, Ga. — Kansas University’s Pornvipa Sakdee shot a third-round 74 and tied for 10th overall at the Lady Jaguar Intercollegiate women’s golf tournament on Saturday. Sakdee shot 81-70-74— 225 to finish 9 over for the tournament. As a team, KU shot 316294-301—912 (48 over) to place fourth behind Vanderbilt (896), Mercer (906) and East Tennessee State (911). Kansas’ other scores: Thanuttra Boonraksasat, tied for 12th, 227; Yupaporn Kawinpakorn and Meghan Potee, tied for 26th, 232; and Mimami Levonowich, tied for 39th, 237.

a 1. We played a really good schedule, and who knows if we’ll be a 2? We’re not going to be disappointed with whatever happens.” Lunardi’s 1 seeds as of Saturday were Florida, Arizona, Wichita State and Michigan. The 2 seeds were Villanova, Wisconsin, Duke and KU. The 3s were Virginia, Creighton, Syracuse and Iowa State, with Louisville curiously all the way on the 4 line. Obviously, some of those slots could change by 5 p.m. today. In fact, Villanova is being touted as a No. 1 in some circles. Also, Arizona lost in the Pac-12 semifinals Saturday. “Honestly, I have no clue where they will put us,” Ellis said. “I mean, this (regular) season is over. There’s nothing we can do now. It’s wherever they put us we have to

athletes like Wiggins and everybody else. “That’s the staple I have as my foundation in training a basketball player. Everybody plays defense, and coach loves defense.” There are, of course, subtle differences from player to player that make Hudy’s training unique for each Jayhawk. For example, she would not ask Frankamp to lift the same amount of weight as senior forward Tarik Black. And the expectations for Black’s flexibility and foot speed differ from Frankamp’s. But in terms of the overall process — Monday through Sunday, 46 to 48 weeks a year — the training regimen is the same for every player in the KU program. “We know what we’re trying to train,” Hudy said, “and that’s a reactive basketball player.”

The five seasons Hudy’s training is broken up into five “seasons” each year. Her recently completed book, “From the Ground Up,” covers this topic, and she is awaiting details on a release date from her literary agent, Waxman Leavell in New York. The postseason, the point the Jayhawks are in today, focuses on bringing each athlete closer to the athletic state he had at the beginning of the season in order to maximize efficiency and, perhaps more importantly, decrease the odds of injury. During this time, the intense, hard-core training methods are cut back or eliminated altogether in favor of a more yogalike resistance approach. When the postseason ends, in mid-March or early-April, Hudy’s training moves through the offseason (April and May), the summer (June through August), the preseason (September and October) and, finally, back into the season (November through February). “Each one of those has a different focus,” she said. “It’s creating an outlier and then recreating a healthy athlete. It’s a cycle. And that’s what makes my job fun. ... It’s figuring out what’s the best exercise prescription for keeping the guys healthy and then making them the best basketball athletes they can be.” It’s also what makes her job one of the most consistent aspects of Kansas basketball. While Bill Self has to deal with poor shooting nights, foul trouble, adjustments by opponents or unpredictable calls made by offi-

be ready to compete and play wherever we play.” Sophomore forward Jamari Traylor said he spends no time considering the possibilities. “I don’t really know. I’m not into that,” Traylor said. “I’m just going to watch it and see where we are and then get ready to play our schedule out. Wherever they put us, we have to play hard and win every game.” Junior point guard Naadir Tharpe said the important thing is to treat the postseason as the most important segment of the year. “We have to let this go,” he said of a setback in which Iowa State hit 11 threes and shot 54 percent overall in a 94-83 victory over KU. “We have Sunday coming up, Selection Sunday, and we have to move forward from there. We can’t let this game drag. It’s a new day tomorrow, and we still know we can make things happen.” Despite having nine losses, “I definitely feel

L awrence J ournal -W orld cials, Hudy’s time with the Jayhawks is finely detailed and starts at the same point every year. “The best time to train a male athlete is at 18,” she said. “That’s why I can get such great results because they come in at 18 every year. So I have consistencies in my life that they’re 18 and that our foundation is defense. ... I get older, they stay the same age.” While that general approach allows Hudy to train and treat one-anddone athletes like the others even though she has them for just a quarter of the time, it’s what happens after that first year that the guys who leave early miss out on the most. “Once we’ve taught the technique and skill development in the weight room, now they can start loading,” said Hudy of the returning players’ ability to lift more weight. “And then we’re talking huge increases in force production. My biggest gains and biggest increases in athleticism are what you see between their freshman and sophomore year.”

Maximizing potential Although Hudy was quick to point out that it’s not her job to decide an athlete’s future, she said she wished every Jayhawk she ever worked with would stay in school for four years. That’s not her being selfish. That’s her wishing to maximize the potential of each athlete, some of whom make incredible progress under her care and risk going down the wrong path once they leave Lawrence. To illustrate the point, Hudy told the tale of one former Jayhawk, whom she did not name, who left KU early, got into the wrong training practices at the request of an agent and quickly went from prospect with sure NBA potential to out of the league in a frighteningly short time. “We’re in exercise prescription,” she said. “And it’s an unregulated field. You can make or break a millionaire or somebody’s life.” The goal is not to take these already gifted athletes and turn them into something they’re not. The goal is to enhance the traits they already have and to get them to fit the fundamental philosophies that define the KU program. It’s the same with one-and-dones as it is for the guys who stay four or five years. “She brought so much more out of me than I ever knew was in me,” Wiggins said. “She’s always trying to push you to reach your limit. And she’s good. She’s been doing it for years, so she knows when you’re slack-

we are one of the best teams,” Ellis said. “It’s a mental-type thing with this team. If we go out and believe and are energized while playing, good things happen. We have to learn to consistently do that.” l

Still an elite team: As of Friday, ESPN’s Jay Bilas had KU as his fifthranked team in the country. “Kansas is a contender because the Jayhawks can score and protect the rim with (the injured) Joel Embiid in the paint. When he isn’t on the court, it’s a big difference,” Bilas wrote at ESPN.com. “Overall, Kansas allows only 9.4 second-chance points per game, fewest in the Big 12. Additionally, Kansas shoots 49.8 percent from the floor, fourth-best in the nation, but gets spotty play at point guard. When Naadir Tharpe plays well — and he has played really well at times this season — Kansas wins. The Jayhawks have won six

ing off, if you’re not going hard.” Asked if he thought Hudy’s training techniques with him differed from the rest of the roster, Wiggins did not hesitate to answer. “She treats us all the same,” he said. “The body’s the same. Some people are just stronger than others.” Although a back injury has muddied the water for freshman center Joel Embiid’s future, he may very well be in line to follow Wiggins out the door after just one season with Hudy. Asked recently if he ever had worked with anyone like her, the 7-foot center from Cameroon who still is in the early stages of his basketball career flashed a look that hinted that the question might as well have been rhetorical. “Um, no,” he said. “I didn’t have anything like that (before Kansas). She knows what she’s doing, and she knows what I need to work on. She’s really helping me. I’ve gotten so much stronger since I’ve been here.”

The next chapter Since November, 10 professional sports teams have come to Lawrence to watch Hudy work. And several other universities regularly inquire about KU’s practices as well. Despite KU’s status as an industry leader in the sports-performance field, Hudy never loses sight of the program’s goal no matter if she’s working with an athlete for just eight months or close to half a decade. Her job is to keep the Jayhawks healthy and increase their on-court efficiency by maximizing the results they get while doing the same amount of work. The gains may be greater for the guys who stick around, but the process is always the same. When the Jayhawks’ postseason run is over, Wiggins will begin the next chapter in his life. It will involve working out for NBA teams, getting ready for this summer’s draft and trying to ride the momentum of all the physical strides he made under Hudy at KU. When told the tale about the former Jayhawk in a similar position who took the wrong steps and flamed out after leaving Hudy before his NBA career ever really got started, Wiggins simply shrugged. “I’ve (trained) with other people,” he said. “And I think I know what’s wrong, what’s right.

No. 16 Iowa State 74, Baylor 65 Kansas City, Mo. — DeAndre Kane scored 17 points, Georges Niang added 13 and Iowa State rallied to beat Baylor on Saturday night to win its first Big 12 tournament title since 2000. Naz Long and Dustin Hogue had 12 points apiece, and Big 12 player of the year Melvin Ejim finished with 10 points and nine rebounds for the fourth-seeded Cyclones (26-7), who knocked off top-seeded Kansas in the semifinals before ending the Bears’ tremendous tournament run. Making only their second title game appearance, the Cyclones were buoyed by a group of supporters dressed in red and yellow and eager to see whether coach Fred Hoiberg — who has already restored Hilton Magic — could start bringing home trophies, too. When the final buzzer sounded inside the Sprint Center, Hoiberg rounded the court with his finger raised — No. 1, as in the top of the Big 12, for only the second time in school history. Kenny Chery had 16 points for the seventhseeded Bears (24-11), who have never won a postseason conference tournament. They’ve lost all three tries since the formation of the Big 12. Brady Heslip finished with 14 points, and Isaiah Austin and Royce O’Neale each had 10 for the Bears, who were trying to become the first champion to win four games in four days. Instead, they ran out of steam when they needed it the most. Still, the Bears have won nine of their last 11 games, moving from a precarious position on the NCAA Tournament bubble to firmly into the field to be announced tonight. For most of Saturday night’s game, it appeared as if they’d be an automatic qualifier. The rim seemed like a hula-hoop to the Cyclones in a semifinal victory over No. 10 Kansas, when they shot 54 percent from the field. But it turned into a thimble in the first half against Baylor, the Cyclones missing their first 13 shots against the Bears’ 2-3 zone defense. Baylor was especially effective against the Cyclones’ big three of Ejim, Niang and Kane, who had carried them to the finals. They combined to miss their first 10 shots. Still, the Cyclones never allowed their deficit to grow to more than 10 points, and two big baskets by Niang in the closing minutes drew Iowa State within 32-27 at the break. Baylor, which had led for all but 97 seconds in its first three games, maintained control throughout much of the second half.

IOWA STATE’S GEORGES NIANG, RIGHT, PASSES around Baylor’s Isaiah Austin during the first half of the Big 12 men’s tournament final, Saturday in Kansas City, Mo. The Cyclones beat the Bears, 74-65. The Cyclones kept making charges that threatened to tie the game, but it seemed that every time Chery or someone else was there to answer the bell. Iowa State finally caught up when Long hit his third three-pointer, and Ejim answered a chant of “Let’s Go Cyclones” from the sea of red with another three that gave them a 53-50 lead with 5:45 to go. The game turned into a tug-of-war down the stretch, the Cyclones taking the lead, the Bears grabbing it right back. It turned into a fitting final few minutes for a conference season that was among the most brutal in league history, and a tournament that was just as competitive. Iowa State eventually persevered, once again relying on its stars. Ejim drained a threepointer to give the Cyclones a 62-58 lead with 2:45 to go, and after Heslip made two free throws for Baylor, Hogue converted a nifty reverse layup to restore the lead. Niang’s two free throws with just over two minutes left gave Iowa State a 66-60 lead, and then he sealed the game with his driving layup with 36 seconds left, starting a party among Iowa State fans that had been more than a decade in the making.

No. 1 Florida 56, Tennessee 49 Atlanta — Even facing its biggest deficit since November, No. 1 Florida never panicked. The Gators know their defense will never let them down. Swarming relentlessly in the second half, Florida rallied from 10 points down and defeated Tennessee in the semifinals of the Southeastern Conference tournament. The Volunteers made only 5-of-20 shots with 11 turnovers, and things really got grim down the stretch as they made just one of their last 11 attempts from the field and turned it over five times. The Gators, improving to 20-0 against SEC opponents, advanced to face Kentucky in the championship game today.

Few spots remain Shocks’ top seed locked in with few games left By Paul Suellentrop

The Wichita Eagle

Wichita — After a quiet week of rest and practice, the history-making Shockers return to the stage today. Around 5 p.m., Wichita State will be revealed as one of the teams expected to win the NCAA men’s basketball title. Not since 1964 have the Shockers entered the NCAA Tournament so highly regarded. No more scrappy No. 9 seed or darkhorse No. 5 seed. All the benefits and burdens of contender status hit another level. The NCAA first seeded teams in 1979 and Indiana State earned one of those spots, the last Missouri Valley Conference team to do so. WSU’s highest seed in seven appearances since 1979 is No. 5 in 2012. Every bracket guesser with a significant audience — Palm, Lunardi, USA Today, Yahoo, Sports Illustrated and others — locks Wichita State into a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament. Upsets of teams such as Kansas, Villanova and Syracuse in conference tournaments reinforced that probability. As an added attraction, the path to the Final Four could visit matchups with KU, Kansas State, Oklahoma State or Creighton upon the Shockers. “Wichita State won the Missouri Valley tournament last Sunday and will carry a perfect 34-0 record into the Big Dance,” wrote Michael Beller of SI.com. “A showdown with in-state rival Kansas in the Elite 8 would make for great theater, and the Jayhawks’ loss to Iowa State in the Big 12 semifinals likely locked them into a 2-seed in the Shockers’ bracket.”

WICHITA STATE COACH GREGG MARSHALL WAVES TO FANS after cutting down the net after the Missouri Valley Conference tournament championship on March 9 in St. Louis. The Shockers (34-0) will watch NCAA’s selection show in private at the Champions Club in Koch Arena. Last season, many of the same players gathered and while they should have been confident of inclusion, they weren’t. It didn’t help when CBS and the NCAA kept the Shockers in the last bracket revealed. “I think there will a little less anticipation and excitement,” WSU sophomore guard Fred VanVleet said. “We feel pretty good about where

we’re at. It’s just a matter of where they send us and who we’ll be playing. Last year, we didn’t know what the heck was going to happen.” WSU knows it’s in the 68-team field with the Missouri Valley Conference’s automatic bid locking up a third consecutive NCAA appearance, a first for the Shockers. As a likely No. 1 seed likely ticketed to play in St. Louis, the suspense is lessened considerably. “The drama will be done pretty quickly, be-

cause they’ll probably show the first four seeds,” WSU coach Gregg Marshall said. “There will be some drama if we’re not one of those four.” What does the No. 1 seed mean? Usually, it’s an easy win over a No. 16 in the first game. No. 1 seeds won 20 of the 35 NCAA titles since 1979. Only six No. 2 seeds are champions in that time. In the past 10 tournaments, 14 No. 1 seeds made the Final Four. From the pool of No. 2 seeds, nine advanced that far. In 2013, the ninthseeded Shockers joined top-seeded Louisville (the eventual champion) and No. 4 seeds Michigan and Syracuse in the Final Four. In 2008, all four No. 1 seeds (Kansas, Memphis, North Carolina and UCLA) played in the Final Four. “This year’s (WSU) team is better than last year’s Final Four team,” ESPN’s Jay Bilas said in a recent network wrapup of the regular season. “That is one tough group that expects to win.” So does the NCAA selection committee. The Shockers step into this new phase of tournament life today. See it all — Fans can watch the private selection show on WSU’s Google Hangout, accessible through http://goshockers.com. The site will host a chat, pictures and live video. CBS Sports selected WSU as one of four teams for a NCAA March Madness Confidential all-access program. A four-person CBS crew will follow the Shockers, Oklahoma, Creighton and San Diego State throughout the tournament.

It’s not uncommon for the selection committee to have its bracket drawn up before all the games are over today. For that reason, and a few others, Michigan could very well have moved up to a No. 1 seed simply by making the Big Ten final. The Wolverines beat Ohio State in the semifinals and will face Michigan State in the last game before the NCAA releases its tournament pairings. Michigan swept the regular-season series between the in-state rivals. But sure, it’s more than possible Tom Izzo’s team could spring an upset. Shouldn’t matter. By moving Michigan to a 1 and Villanova — a onepoint loser to Seton Hall in the quarterfinals of the Big East tournament — to a No. 2, the teams would presumably remain in the same bracket and be seeded to meet in the regional final. Saturday’s action didn’t change much else on the ‘1’ line: Florida won and Wichita State hasn’t played since last Sunday. Arizona lost to UCLA in the Pac-12 championship but the Wildcats were No. 1 in the RPI, so their spot would appear secure. Here’s a Pick Six of how today’s conference finals could impact the brackets:

ACC: Duke vs. Virginia Duke plays in its 31st conference title game. Virginia is in for the first time since 1994. That ACC title is the real prize here. The winner could end up with a No. 2 seed while the loser might fall to a 3 or 4.

A-10: St. Joe’s vs. VCU Not so long ago, St. Joe’s was on the bubble. No longer. The A-10 could get up to six teams in the tournament. Biggest issue here might be whether the result somehow affects the conference’s last bubble team, Dayton. Big Ten: Michigan St. vs. Michigan Michigan hadn’t made the conference final since 1998. Meanwhile, the Spartans have won consecutive games for the first time since late January. But who would bet against Izzo come March? Michigan State is 3-0 when it plays for the Big Ten title. SEC: Florida vs. Kentucky If there’s any doubt as to whether Florida is the overall No. 1 seed (Wichita State is the other option), the Gators can put it to rest here. As is the case with the Big Ten, this game is late, and the seeding decisions may already be locked in. That leaves Florida as 1 or 2 overall and Kentucky somewhere around a ‘6.’ Sun Belt: Georgia St vs. Louisiana-Layfayette Winner-take-all with Georgia State the favorite to dance. Bulldogs’ two victories over Lafayette this season have been by single-digits, though. Watching nervously? Well, none of today’s results will really free up, or take up, an unexpected spot. But SMU (yes, that’s Larry Brown) and Tennessee — teams who should be in — may miss if the committee is using the “eye test” as much or more than the raw statistics.

Miyazaki’s ‘The Wind Rises’ elevates the biopic

A

t age 73, legendary filmmaker Hayao Miyazaki is still finding ways to challenge himself and his audience. Known for his elegant and emotionally stirring animated movies, the Japanese director tackles the usually rigid world of the biopic in “The Wind Rises,” which he has said will be his last film. (To be fair, he has announced his retirement many times before and keeps making more movies, so we can hope this streak of false threats continues.) The master of handdrawn anime, however, isn’t leaving us without first putting his own stamp on the biopic genre. Even as “The Wind Rises” follows the traditional story arc of a character fulfilling his childhood goals and rising to the top of his profession, it’s also buoyed by frequent flights of fancy. Planes with feathers for wings, model airplanes that turn into giant jets, people walking and talking on the wings of soaring biplanes — these are the dream-like images that are all meant to convey the majesty of flight through the eyes of one young boy. Miyazaki’s film is loosely based on the life

Japanese version, and I usually prefer listening to a soundtrack in the film’s native tongue. With animation, though, the voice syncing is usually much better than with live-action films and, especially with a Miyazaki movie, you may not want big subtitles clouding up the beautiful visuals. Another issue is that you may spend too much time reading them and not enough time taking in all of the detail in the images.

A sincere passion for design, not war, is the true soul of this movie — which at just over two hours is a little relaxed — and the subtext finds Miyazaki reflecting on his own life’s work. Along Jiro’s journey are some typical signposts: He falls in love, gets married and overcomes personal challenges, all within the backdrop of important historical events. But Miyazaki’s rare gift for making the purely emotional visual is on display throughout. The Italian aircraft designer Giovanni Battista

HAYAO MIYAZAKI’S “THE WIND RISES,” which was nominated for an Academy Award for best animated picture, is now playing at Liberty Hall. Caproni appears in Jiro’s dreams, and Caproni is surprised to be there because he himself is dreaming. Over time, he becomes a sounding board for Jiro as his art is co-opted for destructive purposes. The sequences while the two philosophize about the beauty of flight vs. the havoc that warplanes cause are presented with a mix of surreal images and “reality.” Again Miyazaki makes a case for the unique properties of traditional animation with fresh designs that feel like they’re from another time completely. “The Wind Rises”

weaves together familiar narrative elements — like the tragic romantic subplot — with awe-inspiring scenes that put the audience squarely in the mind of the obsessive Jiro. The aeronautic designer’s passion for his work is deeply felt, and when things turn dark, that feeling is amplified by meticulous, hand-drawn vibrancy. Perhaps the reason that the film has come under fire from some critics for “downplaying” the destructive role of his planes in the war is that those key moments of reflection on the issue are also presented with the same quality as the

other surreal sequences. It can come off a bit soft. On the other hand, there are bombs with screaming red mouths — evil personified — and Jiro acknowledges the mistakes of the wartime Imperial regime. The condemnation feels like the rest of “The Wind Rises,” with one foot in the absurd. Liberty Hall is showing both the English dubbed version of the movie (with voices from Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Martin Short, and Stanley Tucci) as well as the original Japanese subtitled version.

ast year was the year of the selfie. Oxford Dictionaries even selected it as their word of the year for 2013. It’s so new that my computer tells me I’m spelling it wrong. The definition of a selfie: “a photograph that one has taken of oneself, typically one taken with a smartphone or webcam and uploaded to a social media website.” Selfies, prior to the Internet and social media, can be traced back to the invention of photography. Many people reference Robert Cornelius as having snapped the first self-portrait sometime in October 1893. Unlike today’s instant shutter-snap, it would have taken several minutes of sitting motionless in front of the camera to get a correct exposure. While that might be a stretch for teens of today, it’s believed that in 1921, 13-year-old Russian Grand Duchess Anastasia Nikolaevna, sat still long enough to became the first teen to make a selfie. She mailed it to a friend with a note, “I took this picture of myself looking at the mirror. It was very hard as my hands were trembling.” As cameras shrunk in size and exposure lengths were reduced to fractions of a second, self-portraits became an easier artistic pursuit for many photographers. Some creative examples of photographers who have made or are making self-portraits part of their life work include Cindy Sherman, Vivian Maier and Lee Friedlander. Today’s access to cameras in every pocket and on every phone has led to an abundance of boring selfies — most being social media uploads of arm-length party pics. But with the right subject matter, even these can cause a sensation. A recent tweet from Ellen DeGeneres, who was hosting the Academy Awards, captured a dozen Hollywood stars in one selfie, and it has been retweeted more than 3.3 million times, breaking the previous retweet re-

Spring film releases have summer feel turns to comedy with his new indie passion project. Favreau wrote, directed and starred in this movie about a chef from Miami who runs a food truck and gets re-acquainted with his ex-wife (Sofia Vergara). Robert Downey Jr. and Scarlett Johansson again team up with Favreau in co-starring roles, along with Dustin Hoffman.

By Eric Melin Special to the Journal-World

As the summer movie season becomes more and more crowded, Hollywood’s tentpole movies have started crowding into the spring. As such, this year’s spring crop — with its epic adventures, superheroes, and young adult franchises — looks suspiciously like summer. Here’s what movie fans have to look forward to this spring:

“Neighbors” (May 9) Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne are new parents when a hard-partying fraternity headed by Zac Efron moves next door in this R-rated comedy from director Nicholas Stoller (“Forgetting Sarah Marshall”). It’s being billed as “from the guys who brought you ‘This is the End,’” but Rogen and his writing partner Evan Goldberg are only credited as producers here, so beware.

“Muppets Most Wanted” (March 21) After a successful relaunch of the Muppets franchise in 2011 by Disney, the studio presses on with the same producer-director-songwriter team, but minus Jason Segel. It’s a European caperheist flick with a Kermit look-alike as the world’s No. 1 criminal and Ricky Gervais as his henchman. Ty Burrell and Tina Fey co-star, so everything seems to be in place for another irreverent family romp.

“Godzilla” (May 16) After Warner Bros. saw VFX professional/ director Gareth Edwards’ low-budget directorial debut “Monsters,” it recognized he was the man with the right vision to reboot a franchise that last laid 200 eggs in Madison Square Garden. Disregarding that 1998 Matthew Broderick disaster completely, this new version features Bryan Cranston as a nuclear physicist, and the neoclassic CGI redesign of Japan’s iconic kaiju monster has fans everywhere excited.

“Divergent” (March 21) Summit Entertainment is hoping that Veronica Roth’s best-selling trilogy of books about teenagers growing up in a dystopia will become the next “Hunger Games.” Growing pains are again elevated to lifeand-death situations, as Shailene Woodley portrays a girl who doesn’t fit into any of the five factions of society that divide people in a nearfuture Chicago. There’s a lot riding on its success as the sequels are already being planned.

ploring its stable of characters within different genres, which is why the new Captain America movie looks more like a conspiracy thriller — co-starring Robert Redford! — than a superhero movie.

SPRING ARTS PREVIEW A look at some of this

season’s biggest events By Nadia Imafidon

St. Vincent

8 p.m. March 31, Liberty Hall, $25-$30 Annie Clark, aka St. Vincent, is coming to Liberty Hall in support of her self-titled and quite possibly most genuine record, self-described as “a party record you could play at a funeral.” Released last month — worked on just 36 hours following a tour with David Byrne — this collection of experimental synthy-pop ballad-inspired songs have a more organic sound than her previous three records and labeled the artist as truly fearless. With heavy guitar licks, distortion and bold (not out of character) lyrics, this album is boundless; her song “I Prefer Your Love” proves that, requiring a strong sense of confidence to say “I prefer your love / to Jesus.”

Mates of State

8 p.m. April 15, The Granada, $15 in advance and $17 at the door Indie pop band Mates of State, consisting of husband and wife Kori Gardner and Jason Hammel, are making their way back to their hometown of Lawrence. Together since 1996 and married since 2001, they toured (as parents) all over the world with the likes of Palomar, Jimmy Eat World, Taking Back Sunday, Spoon and Death Cab for Cutie. Three EPs and seven full-length albums later, no other two exemplify “power couple” better than these two. Their latest album “Mountains” was released in 2011; this is being described by them as a seated acoustic piano/drums/voices/strings/horns tour.

Morrissey 8 p.m. May 20, Liberty Hall, $60-$140 Lead singer of indie band The Smiths, Morrissey is in the studio hard at work on his first album since 2009’s “Years of Refusal.” The alt-rock icon’s new album, “World Peace Is None of Your Business,” is to be released provisionally between June and July. He’s also in the midst of a novel, prompted by the success of his autobiography, which was published last year. As long as he remains healthy and the funds keep coming in (two reasons for completely axing his last tour, which was supposed to stop in Lawrence), Morrissey will be here in May.

R.J. Mitte

7 p.m. March 27, Kansas Union (Woodruff Auditorium), free Actor R.J. Mitte, from AMC’s Emmy-winning series “Breaking Bad,” is coming to Kansas University as a part of Center for Community Outreach’s “Into the Streets Week.” Mitte is an advocate for actors with disabilities and a representative of “Inclusion in the Arts and Media of Performers with Disabilities,” having a mild form of cerebral palsy like the character he played on “Bad,” Walt “Flynn” Jr. His lecture will include his personal story, an actor of nine years (seven of which were on “Breaking Bad”) and an inspirational reminder that those with disabilities shouldn’t let that define who they are; they can actually work toward their advantage. For those without disabilities, it’s a lesson in recognizing the tendency to define people as disabled and to correct that.

John McCaughey May 23-June 22 (Insight Art Talk on May 29), Lawrence Arts Center, free Lawrence Arts Center resident artist and printmaker John McCaughey will have a featured exhibit called “Not Compatible: New works by John Paul McCaughey” that opens May 23 at the Arts Center and runs through June 22. He’s been teaching and working on a new body of work at Lawrence Arts Center all year. In this series, he is exploring a new aesthetic movement inspired by Microsoft Tags, the latest form of codes designed for smart phones. “I have become aware of how prevalent pixilation is in our society,” he says on his website. “What I appreciate most are how pixels are not only being used as a way to see our world, but also as a way to conceal or censor it.”

Cashore Marionettes “Simple Gifts” — at 5 p.m. April 11 and 2 p.m. April 12, $8-$19, the Lied Center; “Life in Motion” — 7:30 p.m. April 11 and 12, $8-$19, the Lied Center Offering two showings of two different shows, The Cashore Marionettes is an evening of marionette masterworks by Joseph Cashore, who has been in the puppetry business for 30 years. In “Simple Gifts” the marionettes will offer a theatrical rendition of everyday life scenes set to musical works of Vivaldi, Strauss, Beethoven and Copland. Showing a wide range of emotions, Cashore shows what it means to be human through amazingly convincing inanimate characters. In “Life in Motion,” Cashore’s hand-built marionettes replicate stunning effects, like toes wiggling from the hole in a shoe and a mother holding her squirming newborn.

Arlo Guthrie

8 p.m. April 1, Liberty Hall, $35-$100

Son of iconic folk singer Woody Guthrie (who composed “This Land is Your Land”), Arlo Guthrie is notorious for his songs protesting against social injustice, following in the footsteps of his father. “Alice’s Restaurant” is his most famous piece, an 18-minute-long talking blues song — 18 minutes and 34 seconds to be exact, which is the length of one of the famous gaps in Richard Nixon’s Watergate tapes. In concert, he has been known to extend the song out to 45 minutes.

Soweto Gospel Choir 7:30 p.m. March 29, the Lied Center, $12-$26 Grammy-winning South African ensemble the Soweto Gospel Choir is celebrating its 10-year anniversary on this tour with tribal, traditional and popular African and international gospel songs. They are known for rich harmonies, a capella and percussive elements, colorful traditional outfits and joyful choreography. The members have diverse backgrounds. which explains the numerous languages they sing in, including English, Xhosa, Zulu and Sotho, which in no way affects the meaning translated to listeners who don’t understand the various languages, says longtime member Shimmy Jiyane. The group has shared the stage with Bono, Josh Groban, Cat Stevens and Annie Lennox, to name a few.

‘The Great Gatsby’ Love Garden Celebration May 4, SeedCo. Studios For the Love Garden’s 24th birthday, SeedCo. Studios is hosting a party with food, drinks and a lot of music. One of the local record store’s favorite acts is already confirmed: Woods (pictured), a folk-rock band out of Brooklyn. Other confirmed bands include Blood on the Wall, and locals OILS and Your Friend, but they are looking to announce many more closer to the birthday party.

April 11-27, Theatre Lawrence Simon Levy’s award-winning stage adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic novel will bring the glamour and magnificence of the Jazz Age to the Theatre Lawrence stage. The play tells the story of Jay Gatsby, a self-made millionaire passionately pursuing long-lost love Daisy Buchanan (and the American Dream) through a series of extravagant parties in the backdrop of the Roaring ’20s.

Other spring events of note Scott Stapp, 8 p.m. March 25, The Granada Son Venezuela 20th anniversary show, 10 p.m. March 29, The Granada “Broadway’s Next Hit Musical,” 7:30 p.m. April 4, Lied Center

BOOK REVIEW

‘Five Came Back’ recounts filmmakers’ WWII stories

By Matthew Price Newsday

The Five were the top writing and directing talent of American cinema’s prewar Golden Age: John Ford, Frank Capra, William Wyler, George Stevens and a charger named John Huston, who wowed Tinseltown with his first directorial effort, “The Maltese Falcon” (1941). In his new book, “Five Came Back: A Story of Hollywood and The Second World War,” film historian and Entertainment Weekly columnist Mark Harris chronicles this formidable quintet’s wartime experiences as soldier-filmmakers who strove to bring World War II to the screen. Advancing into middle age, they took pay cuts when they signed up; during the war, they made everything from documentaries to training films to cartoon shorts. Harris deploys the same reportorial diligence that powered his previous book, “Pictures at a Revolution,” about the 1967 Oscar race for best picture. His style is dry at times, but succinct. Mining memoirs, government documents, trade periodicals, film criticism, letters and scripts, Harris painstakingly chronicles how Hollywood collaborated with the U.S. government as it waged war against Japan and Germany. “They would honor their country, risk their lives, and create a new visual vocabulary for fic-

KANSAS CITY CONNECTION

By Lucas Wetzel

Sporting KC kicks off season with better eats

I

t’s hard to imagine Sporting Kansas City having a much better season than it did in 2013. Winners of the MLS Cup, and a close second in the race for the Supporter’s Shield (awarded to the Major League Soccer club with the most points in regular season play), 2013 was one for the books. Adding to the team’s success is an outstanding fan experience, including free Wi-Fi at the stadium, attractive apparel and merchandise, excellent social media coverage and player involvement in charitable causes. There was, however, one area of the Sporting experience that I’d heard more than one fan grumble about: the food. This year, even that’s been improved, with new menu items including European-style meat pies, grilled cheese and bacon, barbecue baked potatoes, tacos and habanero hominy. There’s also a new blue curacaobased Blue Hell Lemonade cocktail that looks like something you might be more likely to see

while on spring break at South Padre Island. Draft beers are still a princely $8.75, but Sporting games were never about getting drunk (at least in my opinion), and the vibe at Sporting Park tends to be more family friendly than a more intense, boozy NFL game, for example. With the team active in both the MLS season and the CONCACAF Champions League, Sporting faces a busy month ahead. The team carries a 1-0 lead into a home-andaway Champions League series against Mexican powerhouse Cruz Azul, with the second leg taking part at 9 p.m. Wednesday in Mexico City. The next home match for Sporting will be at 7:30 p.m. Saturday against the San Jose Earthquakes. For a full schedule and ticket information, visit sportingkc. com.

12 Baltimore Now that Big 12 tournament action has wrapped up, visitors to downtown Kansas City

might feel like venturing beyond the sports bars and food trucks for their next meal. One downtown eatery that often gets overlooked is 12 Baltimore, connected to the Hotel Phillips at the corner of 12th and Baltimore streets. For prices comparable to those at Free State Brewery, 12 Baltimore offers high-quality food in a classy yet relaxed setting. The burgers and salads are especially good, and a row of Boulevard taps makes it just as good a place to pre-game for an event as anywhere else in the neighborhood. 12 Baltimore offers a special Stimulus Lunch ($8.95 for one of a dozen menu items, including a beverage) each weekday from 11 a.m. to noon, and happy hour specials run each day from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. A brunch buffet is available on weekends from 8 a.m. until noon for $14, and the restaurant features drink specials and live jazz from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. Fridays.

‘La bohème’ As a college freshman, I bought a reproduction of the original 1926 poster for Puccini’s “Turandot” at the Kansas Union poster sale, thereby dazzling friends and visitors with my cultural awareness. This week, I will take another huge step forward by actually seeing my first Puccini opera, “La bohème,” presented by the Lyric Opera of Kansas City.

Long-distance relationships can tie teens down Dear Annie: I’m 17 and currently in a longdistance relationship with this awesome girl from California. We’ve never met in person, but we have Skyped a lot. We’ve been together for more than a year. Here’s the problem: I’ve been having doubts that we’ll ever really be together. On top of that, there’s this nice girl from my old school who recently admitted that she really likes me, and I’m sad to say, I like her, too. I don’t want to leave my girlfriend, but I don’t know what our next step would be. What should I do? — Chris in Chicago Dear Chris: Longdistance romances can work, but they are complicated and challenging even for experienced couples. And if you are not likely to meet this girl in person for months, if not years,

it doesn’t give you the opportunity to learn the real-life requirements of a solid relationship. We think you should remain friends, but give yourself the chance to meet girls in your area and allow her the same freedom. If she’s as awesome as you say, you will be able to discuss this with her and reach an understanding. Dear Annie: From a young age, I understood the harmful effects of smoking, be-

NBC thriller unnecessarily over-the-top Subtly is the first casualty in high-concept thrillers. And in “Crisis” (9 p.m. Sunday, NBC) the collateral damage includes humor, credibility and sensible dialogue as well. Not that “Crisis” isn’t somewhat fun in its own bludgeoning manner. Oddly enough, the actions on “Crisis” begin with a hijacked high school class trip. The hostages go to a posh Washington, D.C., academy, where nearly every student is the little darling of the rich and powerful, elite and connected. One of the kidnapped kids includes the bratty son of the president. At first, it seems that he’s the target of the furtive villains. But we’re soon informed that nearly every student is connected to some master of the universe. The presence of the president’s son only allows “Crisis” to involve black helicopters and Secret Service hardware and turgid conversations that begin with the phrase, “Shall we tell the president?” Gillian Anderson stars as Meg Fitch, a powerful software executive with “350,000 employees.” Her daughter just happens to be on the bus. Rachael Taylor plays FBI special agent Susie Dunn. As a mere civil servant, she’s hard-pressed to reassure the worried alpha parents. And she just happens to be Meg’s long-estranged sister. They share a deep, dark secret that I can’t reveal here. Dermot Mulroney plays a washed-up CIA analyst who appears to be the pathetic divorced dad of one of the horrible teens. He’s volunteered as a chaperone on the bus, much to his daughter’s mortification and his ex-wife’s disgust. In some ways, “Crisis” most resembles the recently canceled CBS drama “Hostages,” another over-the-top thriller mixing the worries of an ordinary family and the first family in strenuously improbable ways. The unwatched “Hostages” was a portrait of understatement compared to “Crisis,” a drama where every action is announced with the exclamation point of a thundering musical score.

Sunday’s other highlights

Highlights of blind auditions on “The Voice” (6 p.m., NBC).

An important speech inspires Alicia to reflect on “The Good Wife” (8 p.m., CBS).

A moment of repose and reflection on “The Walking Dead” (8 p.m., AMC).

They even create tobacco products with flavors like cherry, mint and cookies ‘n’ cream to appeal to young people. Every day, more than 3,200 kids try their first cigarette. According to the surgeon general, 5.6 million kids alive today will die early from smoking unless we act to prevent it. I hope everyone takes a minute to learn more about how they can help by visiting tobaccofreekids.org. — Tyler Long, age 19, freshman at Wofford College, Spartanburg, S.C.

JACQUELINE BIGAR’S STARS

For Sunday, March 16: This year you often focus on relationships. The issue for you might be how much you need to give. If you are single, you will want your potential sweetie to reveal more of him- or herself. If you are attached, the two of you often see situations differently. 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)  The Full Moon tugs at others’ emotions. You will be smart enough to not get involved in one of these highly dramatic situations. Tonight: Ready for some fun! Taurus (April 20-May 20)  You might feel as if you are being pulled like saltwater taffy as you listen to both sides of a story. Tonight: Make it early. Gemini (May 21-June 20)  You might want to stay away from crowds. Tonight: Add some mischief and fun to a relationship. Cancer (June 21-July 22)  The Full Moon today affects you more than it does any other sign. Don’t sit back any longer, and go for what you want. Tonight: Speak your mind. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)  You will be coming from a very secure spot with a loved one. You might feel awkward when dealing with a child. Tonight: Your treat.

ter. This year marks the 50th anniversary of the first surgeon general’s report on smoking and health, which made headlines with its conclusions that cigarette smoking is responsible for a 70 percent increase in the mortality rate over non-smokers, that there is a correlation between smoking and lung cancer, chronic bronchitis, emphysema and coronary heart disease, and that smoking during pregnancy reduces the average weight of newborns. This year, Kick Butts Day will be held on March 19th. This is a national day of activism empowering our young people to speak out against Big Tobacco. — Send questions to anniesmailbox@comcast.net, or Annie’s Mailbox, P.O. Box 118190 Chicago, IL 60611.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)  You could not be better, as you reach out to a loved one. Make special plans together. Tonight: Indulge a loved one. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)  You might feel a bit out of sorts. You could decide to stay close to home and relax. Tonight: Out for dinner. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)  Use the daylight hours to meet friends for a movie or brunch. Tonight: Head home. Make it early. Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)  Make time for a friend today. You might be more irritated than you think about a personal matter. Tonight: A meeting could turn into a fun happening. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)  Keep reaching out to someone at a distance. This person could be far more demanding than you had anticipated. Tonight: Out late. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)  Others clamor for your time and attention. Make it your pleasure. Tonight: Where there is great music. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)  The Full Moon emphasizes your friendships and major ties in general. A conversation could be awkward. Tonight: Ease up and relax. — The astrological forecast should be read for entertainment only.
