Dose of local history kicks off strategic planning process By Rochelle Valverde

At the end of city leaders’ first strategic planning meeting, a timeline of sticky notes ranging from the

Bleeding Kansas era to Rock Chalk Park hung on the wall. The exercise was one of several during the approximately three-hour strategic planning meeting held Friday, and one Mayor Leslie Soden

found particularly helpful in considering the various factors that have shaped the city. “Right now, I’m just a person in a certain time and a certain place, and so I feel like my impact is quite limited,”

Soden said. “I would like it to be larger than what it is, and so it’s important to be able to see the longer impact that people can have on periods of time.” Soden said that ability is key as local leaders prepare to

develop the framework of the city’s first strategic plan, which will lay out what they want the city to look like in the future and specific steps to get there. CITY COMMISSION




Residents advised to stay off icy roads if at all possible By Conrad Swanson

If you’re out driving and you begin to spin or slide, experts say the best course of action is to turn into the spin. But the best course of action, all agree, is not to be on the icy road in the first place, if you can help it. On Friday the It’s National Weather Service issued Kansas, folks. an ice storm You know it warning for Douglas County can get bad until midnight quickly.” on Sunday. The weather service — Release from the was predicting Douglas County light freezing rain Sheriff’s Office and drizzle could continue through this afternoon. The forecast called for heavier accumulations of freezing rain tonight and into Sunday morning. Total accumlations of ice could be between one-quarter to threequarters of an inch, which is heavy enough to cause damage to tree limbs and power lines, the weather service advised.

Analysts: Repealing LLC loophole won’t be enough Statehouse Live

Topeka — In their first joint news conference of the session, the two Democratic leaders of the Legislature said they believe the only long-term solution to the state’s ongoing budget problems is through taxes, and specifically

But further measures could be tough to pass repealing many or all of the sweeping tax cuts that Republican Gov. Sam Brownback championed in 2012.

“We can’t possibly cut our way out of this problem,” Sen. Anthony Hensley, of Topeka, said. “We

don’t need to cut the budget. What we need to do is find a revenue solution.” Hensley was responding to an earlier statement from Senate Republican leaders earlier in the week in


Dole exhibit to highlight activism of Vietnam POWs’ wives By Sara Shepherd

In the early years of the Vietnam War, wives of men missing in action or taken as prisoners were terrified to speak out about their husbands’ plights,

according to historian Heath Hardage Lee. “The military ordered the POW/MIA wives and their families to adhere to a ‘Keep Quiet’ policy,” Lee said. “At the start of the Vietnam conflict, the wives were informed that

City commissioners were joined by more than a dozen other city staff members, including department heads and City Manager Tom Markus. The timeline was broken into three categories — people, events and actions — and by the end of the exercise had dozens of entries. People included on the timeline included longtime City Manger Buford Watson, Alvamar developer Bob Billings and current Commissioner Mike Amyx, who just completed his sixth term as mayor. Actions included the founding of the University of Kansas, establishment of the local fair housing


which they criticized Republican Gov. Sam Brownback’s budget proposal, saying, “The solution will require a combination of cuts and changes to tax policy.” One problem is, there is only one major reversal of Brownback’s tax policies that might stand a chance of getting the two-thirds majority needed to overcome a near-certain veto: repealing the so-called LLC exemption. But that, by itself, only generates about $250 million a year, which budget analysts say is not nearly enough to fix the state’s longterm structural budget problem unless its coupled with significant

ordinance, rejection of the “cornfield mall,” westward expansion of the city limits, and the construction of the South Lawrence Trafficway. Defining events included Quantrill’s raid, the flood of 1951 and the social unrest of the 1970s. Once the timeline was complete, commissioners and staff came up with a phrase to characterize the time periods. Soden said that was another helpful process. “It’s good to think about this and be able to pick out points in time that we can sort of label,” Soden

said. “Obviously, this is not an exact science that we’re doing, but to still be able to label different time periods is helpful so that we can come up with our own label of what we want the future to be.” That process was more difficult for the most recent period, 2007-2016. The period was eventually dubbed the “decade of dichotomy” after some debate as to whether it should be defined by success or controversy. Timeline entries for the “decade of dichotomy” included controversial

spending cuts. Democrats, as well as many Republicans, are saying they want a longterm, structural fix to the state’s budget problems. The problem is, there probably isn’t as much support for passing other measures to reverse the 2012 tax cuts, like reinstating a third bracket for upper-income tax filers, or raising individual tax rates across the board to their pre-2012 levels. “The LLC repeal is overwhelmingly popular. There’s probably not 10 people in this building with a vote on the





Temperatures are expected to rise above freezing on Sunday afternoon and stay above the freezing mark into Sunday evening. As people try to steer clear of the ice, local law enforcement and emergency officials offered a few pieces of advice. Douglas County Emergency Management said in a release the bulk of freezing rain should hit today, followed by more rain — likely liquid — Sunday through Monday. Area residents should beware of tree damage and downed power lines as a result of the freezing rain, the release said. Once the ice hits Lawrence, the Lawrence Police Department said in a release they encourage residents to “take everyone’s advice and stay in this weekend.” In another release, the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office offered a few tips, reminding residents not to underestimate the weather. “It’s Kansas, folks,” the release said. “You know it can get bad quickly.” Though the sheriff’s office strongly encouraged motorists to avoid travel unless it’s absolutely necessary, it also offered a few tips for staying safe on the road. “If you are in a wreck or a slide off, in most instances the safest place for you to be is in your car with your seat belt on,” the release said. “In bad weather, it’s not uncommon for other vehicles to wreck or slide off right where you did.” The chances of injury or death increase greatly if you’re outside your vehicle, the release said. “So buckle up and stay safe,” the release said.


Lee, of Virginia, the 2017 Dole Archives Curatorial Fellow, is curating the exhibit based on her book “The Reluctant Sorority: The True Story of Survival and Rescue from the Homefront,” due for release in 2018. “The wives’ weapons were organization, tenacity and their willingness to ditch the very military protocols they were trained to adhere to,” Lee said, in a statement about the exhibit. “Ultimately, these Vietnam War wives quit waiting for their husbands to be rescued by the American government.” Instead, Lee said, the women did the job themselves with help from U.S. Sen. Bob Dole, among other top Washington officials. Around the end of the 1960s and the beginning of the 1970s, the wives came together, held rallies, worked with political leaders and publicly called for priority to be placed on getting their husbands home. At a rally on May 1, 1970, at DAR Constitution Hall in Washington, D.C., League co-founder Louise Mulligan said the date represented the international distress signal, mayday. She was joined by fellow League founders Sybil Stockdale, Phyllis Galanti and Jane Denton. “This is our call, a call of distress for our thousands of sons, husbands and fathers who have been detained brutally for years,” Mulligan said, according to a typed script of her remarks being used for the Dole Institute exhibition. “... Have we become so callous that these men are going to be written off? Our President has said, — Public safety reporter Conrad ‘A just peace is in sight.’ Swanson can be reached at 832-7284.

floor who support that anymore,” House Minority Leader Jim Ward of Wichita said. “That’s the sugar. But if you take the sugar and eat the dessert first, it’s hard to get the meat and potatoes down.” It should also be noted that when a stand-alone bill to repeal the LLC loophole came to the floor of the House last year, nearly half of the Democratic caucus at that time voted against it. “And that was because they knew, the hard, heavy lifting wasn’t in the bill, and it was

developments: the HERE apartment complex, The Oread hotel and Rock Chalk Park. On other notes were the approval of the infrastructure sales tax, the opening of the South Lawrence Trafficway, and City Manager Tom Markus, who joined city staff 10 months ago. Soden said the last decade highlighted the need for a strategic plan. “We can’t figure out how to label the last 10 years; that’s why there’s so much controversy now, because we’re all pulling in different directions,” she said. The retreat is being headed by The Novak Consulting Group, which the city hired to assist it in creating its first strategic plan. In addition to considering the city’s history, consultants asked commissioners and staff

to list global and local trends currently affecting the city. That list passed issues such as climate change, political po- 645 New Hampshire St. (News Center) Lawrence, KS 66044 larization and the effects (785) 843-1000 • (800) 578-8748 of the internet.

political gamesmanship,” Ward said, although he himself voted for the repeal. So the quandary for lawmakers is this: While there may be overwhelming support for repealing the LLC loophole, it may actually be difficult to pass as a stand-alone bill because Democrats, as well as most moderate Republicans, view it as only a partial fix, and because passing it alone will make it harder to get support later in the session for other, more difficult tax increases. At the same time, if repealing the LLC loophole is attached to a bunch of other tax measures that are less popular politically, the whole package becomes difficult just to pass out of the Legislature, let alone garner the two-thirds majority needed to override an

almost certain governor’s veto. Hensley said he still wants to try for the larger fix, but he acknowledged that repeal of the LLC loophole may be the only thing that passes this year. “It’s very likely that will be the only thing that’s done, in terms of tax reform, which I think would be very unwise and unproductive,” he said. The test of how far lawmakers are willing to go on taxes may come on Thursday when the House Taxation Committee takes up a bill that would repeal the LLC loophole, but otherwise would not change overall income tax rates.

ACTIVISTS CALLED FOR INCREASED EFFORTS to bring POWs home at rallies around the end of the 1960s and the beginning of the 1970s. Pictured is a promotional flyer for a rally held on May 1, 1970, at DAR Constitution Hall in Washington, D.C. camps.” Mulligan shared numbers for missing or imprisoned men — more than 1,500 at the time — and said it had taken the men’s families a year to “educate the world” on the truth of the situation. “Do not turn your back on the hundreds of mothers who want their sons returned,” Mulligan said, in the script. “Do not ignore the children who cry out for the love and guidance of their fathers and the hundreds of wives who have grieved for years, some for husbands who will never return! Hear our call of distress and the cry from within the walls of the prison camps — May Day, May Day!!!! Help. Please Help!”

The “Keep Quiet” policy was in place under President Lyndon B. Johnson, Lee said. Tactics and that policy changed after Richard Nixon was elected in 1968, Lee said. She said the new administration saw the public relations value the wives could provide and that helping American POWs and MIAs would become a unifying cause for the entire country. Dole was an early and ardent supporter of the cause, and helped boost the League’s national visibility, according to the Dole Institute. His support for the League is a “little-remembered” part of Dole’s legacy, said Audrey Coleman, assistant director

and senior archivist at the Dole Institute. Dole officials learned about the connection when Lee visited KU in 2015 to research some of the Dole Institute collections. “It also resonates today as a prime example of a grass-roots effort becoming a partnership of citizens and their government officials,” Coleman said. “This transformative partnership changed U.S. government protocol regarding prisoners of war and missing in action — and ultimately, the fate of their husbands.” The “League of Wives” exhibition is just the third exhibition to be created by the Dole Institute, Coleman said. It’s being funded by a $50,000 gift from Harlan and Alice Ann Ochs of Colorado Springs, Colo., according to the Dole Institute. Harlan’s late brother Larry Ochs was former mayor of Colorado Springs and a strong advocate for the POW/ MIA cause. After being displayed in Lawrence, the exhibition will travel, Coleman said. It will open at the Colorado Springs Pioneers Museum in March 2018 and at the Virginia Historical Society — home to a collection of League co-founder Galanti’s papers — in early 2019. Each institution will customize the display with materials from its own collections. When details about the exhibition’s opening at the Dole Institute are set, they will be posted online at

Trial of 2nd suspect in Haskell rape case to stay in Lawrence By Conrad Swanson

THE LAWRENCE BOARD OF REALTORS NAMED ITS AWARD RECIPIENTS FOR 2017 ON FRIDAY EVENING. From left: Randy Barnes, recipient of the Mary Jones Good Neighbor Award; Zach Dodson, Newcomer of the Year; Deborah McMullen, recipient of the Distinguished Service Award; Toland Hippe, Salesperson of the Year; and John Esau, Realtor of the Year.

The criminal trial for the second of two former Haskell Indian Nations University students accused of rape will remain in Lawrence, a judge ordered Friday. Galen Satoe, 22, faces two felony counts of rape and a single felony count of aiding and abetting attempted rape. He was arrested alongside Jared Wheeler, 21, in 2014. In a criminal trial last summer, a jury Satoe failed to reach a unanimous decision regarding Satoe’s charges, and a mistrial was declared. His second trial is scheduled to begin in February. On Wednesday, Satoe’s attorney, Angela Keck, requested that Douglas County District Court Judge Paula Martin change the upcoming trial’s location or reschedule the proceedings

for a later time. Since Satoe’s and Wheeler’s arrest there has been a “steady stream of press coverage” regarding the reported incident and subsequent court proceedings, Keck argued. In December, Wheeler, who originally faced two felony counts of rape and one felony count of aggravated criminal sodomy, pleaded no contest to a single, felony count of aggravated battery. On Jan. 6, Martin sentenced Wheeler to serve 60 days in jail, followed by two years of probation. Keck argued news of Wheeler’s conviction and sentencing could bias potential jurors against him and asked Martin to grant a new location for the trial or reschedule the trial until the local buzz surrounding Wheeler’s case has died down.


KU has big enrollment growth in some of the top-paying majors


nrollment is up in quite a few engineering programs at the University of Kansas in recent years. Could this be why? (And is it too late for me to change my major?) Engineering specialties make up 20 of today’s top 25 highest paying majors, according to a recently released list from the higher ed rankings and analysis company College Factual. Some of those specialties are pretty, well, specialized and probably not offered anywhere near KU (ie: mining and mineral engineering, naval

…our love for God and our love for neighbor begin as responses to love we’ve already received. Christian charity flows from having first experienced the love of God ourselves. The ultimate purpose of every human being is fulfilled by knowing God’s love and being with him for eternity. All Christian charity is practiced with this goal in mind. Therefore, to be authentic, Christian charity must be free and must be motivated to share God’s love with others, in addition to offering material aid. Christian charity is always both a material and a religious act. From “A Principled Charity” by Chales J. Shaput, O.F.M.Cap. The Institute on Religion and Public Life.

2 former restaurant buildings demolished T

he Russians are at it again. They apparently are hacking into Mother Nature in an effort to give us Siberia. (There is not unanimity on that point. Some leaders believe the pending ice storm may be the result of some guy in New Jersey leaving his freezer door open.) I can’t sort that out, but I do have some news and notes for you to ponder while you try to stay warm and safe this weekend. l Perhaps the memories of Don’s Steakhouse can keep you warm. Soon, that is all you will have left of the once popular restaurant along Lawrence’s eastern edge. Demolition crews on Friday were tearing the building down. For those of you who have forgotten, Don’s Steakhouse was just west of 23rd and O’Connell. Crews earlier this week tore down the old Diamond Everley Roofing building that was just east of the Don’s Steakhouse building. A development group led by an executive with Diamond Everley is redeveloping the old roofing business site and the Don’s Steakhouse site into an 89-room Country Inn & Suites Hotel. Crews were tearing into the backside of the restaurant building early Friday morning. Don’s Steakhouse was open from 1962 to 2008, with founder Don Scott

He told me then that he likely was going to tear down the building to make way for a new Slim Chickens restaurant. How soon that will happen, though, isn’t entirely certain.

has closed its Lawrence location. If you are scoring at home, that is three either current or former steakhouse locations that have gone by the wayside. An employee at Montana Mike’s, 1015 Iowa St., confirmed that the restaurant has shut down. But he also said the company behind Montana Mike’s plans to open a new restaurant at the location this spring. Look for remodeling work to begin soon. The employee said the new restaurant would be a different concept than Montana Mike’s but he said he wasn’t authorized to speak about that. I’ll reach out to the corporate headquarters at a later time to see if I can learn more. As for Montana Mike’s, it may not be coincidence that it has closed just a few months after Texas Roadhouse opened its chain steakhouse on south Iowa Street. But the closing does end a long run for the budget steakhouse. The employee I talked with didn’t have an exact date of when the restaurant opened in Lawrence, but it has been in town for more than 15 years, he said. — This is an excerpt from Chad Lawhorn’s Town Talk column, which appears on

As part of the sale, Midco has also acquired Channel 6, which broadcasts daily news, weather and sports, as well as other local shows such as “The Not So Late Show.” As with WOW’s other services, Stang said the future operations of Channel 6 will also be determined as part of the strategic plan. “With regards to Chan-

Midco is a regional cable, internet and service provider with businesses in North Dakota, South Dakota, Wisconsin and Minnesota. WOW has more than 30,000 customers in Douglas, Leavenworth and Wyandotte counties, who will be added to 350,000 customers that Midco currently serves. Stang said working to provide more reliable service — WOW had multiple service outages over the past weekend — will also be talked about. “We have to get our arms around what are the outages, what’s causing them, what best practices has Midco put in place to avoid and respond to outages,” Stang said. “That will absolutely be talked about in the planning.” A complete change of billing and service packages, though, won’t happen right away. During a transitional period of up to six months, WOW

staff in the Lawrence office will continue to provide the same services to Lawrence-area customers. An operational transfer of services will be announced at a later date, and Stang said though there are differences in packages, prices will be comparable. “I would expect the overall dollars, depending on what services you have, could absolutely remain close to being the same,” Stang said. Stang said 68 WOW employees were kept on as part of the sale, with less than five people laid off as a result of the acquisition. However, Stang said that adding to Midco’s Lawrence-area staff in future is a possibility. She said the company’s service operations will not stay in the Riverfront Plaza, and that Midco is in the process of finalizing a lease for different building. “We know we’re going to bring new products, we know we’re going to be bringing new services into this marketplace,” Stang said. “We’re confident that we’re going to going to be able to grow our customer base, and with that will come jobs.”

due to the expected ice storm, Tuesday’s convocation will continue as planned, school officials said.

Phillip and Phoebe Godwin

Godwin 65th Wedding Anniversary Dr. and Mrs. Phillip Godwin celebrated their 65th wedding anniversary on December 23rd with a holiday weekend of festivities with their family. Phil and Phoebe were married in the Wesley Hospit­ al Chapel, Wichita, Kansas on December 23, 1951. They were the second couple to be married in this beautiful new chapel. Phoebe had just com­ pleted her RN degree that September from Wesley Hospital School of Nursing in Wichita. Phil was a first year student at the Univ of KS School of Medicine, which was taught on the Lawrence campus at that time. The couple is blessed with three children, their spouses, and grand­

children: Greg (Nora) of Keokuk, Iowa and their son Trent; Amy (Mark) Wulfemeyer of Leawood, KS and their daughter Lily; and Andrew (Cecilia) Godwin of Leawood, KS and their daugh­ ter Eryn. Phil and Phoebe have been residents of Lawrence, KS since May of 1956. Phil began his medic­ al practice with Drs. Jones, Manahan and Mitchell and contin­ ued practicing with several other medical groups until his re­ tirement in May of 1999. Both Phil and Phoebe have been actively involved with numerous or­ ganizations in the Lawrence com­ munity and have en­ joyed traveling the world together.

As Pioneer Ridge Independent Living gets ready to open, we’re setting our sights on finding caring, positive staff that will provide excellent customer service to residents in our upscale community. This will be a great opportunity to join our team of high-energy professionals and work at Lawrence’s newest senior living building.

Say no to Brownback’s disastrous ideas Gov. Sam Brownback has known for months that the state budget was shockingly out of balance. He also knew he had authority to order budget cuts and bring spending in line with revenues. His failure to act has allowed red ink to balloon to $350 million this year, plus another $580 million in the fiscal year that begins July 1. The governor’s latest financial ploys unveiled this week include an astounding mishmash of desperate maneuvers. Two of these stand out in pushing the state deeper into unprecedented debt. First, the governor proposes to borrow $530 million from private investors and in return hand over to them for 30 years the proceeds from the tobacco settlement of 1999. This drastic maneuver would blow up the Children’s Initiatives Trust Fund and wipe out revenues dedicated to early childhood education. Second, the governor proposes to borrow another $317 million from the pooled money investment fund and have Kansas taxpayers pay back this loan over seven years. When Kansas State Sen. Carolyn McGinn, newly appointed

H. Edward Flentje

The governor’s latest financial ploys unveiled this week include an astounding mishmash of desperate maneuvers. Two of these stand out in pushing the state deeper into unprecedented debt.” chair of the Senate Ways and Means Committee, saw this scheme, she aptly observed: “It looks to me like we’re taking a pay day loan. We are borrowing against ourselves … it’s just going to put us further away from where we need to get to.” The governor wants to force state legislators into a corner

with one-time fixes — layering more long-term borrowing on top of the mountain of debt he has already amassed. Adding new debt to the existing Brownback-era debt burden would be the height of financial mismanagement. An unvarnished look at our state’s current debt load should give legislators pause: Under Brownback tax-supported debt has already swollen to an all-time high of $4.7 billion, a 50 percent jump in just two years. Kansas led the nation in boosting its borrowing, according to Moody’s, a respected national credit rating agency, and has now joined the top third of state borrowers that include mostly debt-happy East Coast states. By comparison, states surrounding Kansas all fall into the bottom one-fifth in debt per capita and as a percent of personal income. This dramatic growth is due to the ill-advised issuance of record levels of pension and highway debt. Under Brownback, Kansas has issued $850 million in new highway debt, but none of those funds have gone to improve roads. That amount and more were swept

from the highway fund to pay for a reckless tax experiment. In its first year proceeds from the new $1 billion pension debt have fallen short of paying interest on those bonds and have not diminished the state’s $9 billion pension liability. This debt load coupled with unsustainable state finances has resulted in multiple credit downgrades for the state as a whole and for a number of state agencies engaged in borrowing. Paying off these debts now takes priority over vital core services — public schools, state colleges and universities, public safety, and aid to vulnerable citizens — and will continue as the top priority every year to come into midcentury, if not longer. My message to Republican legislators: Shed the toxic Brownback brand of unbalanced budgets, unfair taxes and historic debt. Slam the door on the governor’s one-time fixes. Repair state finances and balance the budget without more debt. Or face the music and start slashing away at state spending. — H. Edward Flentje is professor emeritus at Wichita State University.

What happened to the honeymoon? Washington — The shortest honeymoon on record is officially over. Normally, newly elected presidents enjoy a wave of goodwill that allows them to fly high at least through their first 100 days. Donald Trump has not yet been sworn in and the honeymoon has already come and gone. Presidents-elect usually lie low during the interregnum. Trump never lies low. He seized the actual presidency from Barack Obama within weeks of his election — cutting ostentatious deals with U.S. manufacturers to keep jobs at home, challenging 40-yearold China policy, getting into a very public fight with the intelligence agencies. By now he has taken over the presidential stage. It is true that we have only one president at a time, and for over a month it’s been Donald Trump. The result is quantifiable. A Quinnipiac poll from Nov. 17-20 — the quiet, hope-and-change phase — showed a decided bump in Trump’s popularity and in general national optimism. It didn’t last long. In the latest Quinnipiac poll, the numbers have essentially returned to Trump’s (historically dismal) pre-election levels. For several reasons. First, the refusal of an unbending left to accept the legitimacy of Trump’s victory. It’s not just the demonstrators chanting “not my president.” It is leading Democrats pushing one line after another to delegitimize the election, as in: he lost the popular vote, it’s James Comey’s fault, the Russians did it. Second, Trump’s own instincts and inclinations, a thirst for attention that leads to hyperactivity. His need to dominate every news cycle feeds an almost compulsive tweet habit. It has placed him just about continuously at the center of the national conversation and not always to his benefit. Trump simply can’t resist playground pushback. His tweets gave Meryl Streep’s Golden Globes screed priceless publicity. His mocking Arnold Schwarzenegger for bad “Apprentice” ratings — compared with “the ratings machine, DJT” — made Trump look small and Arnold (almost) sympathetic. Nor is this behavior likely to change after the inauguration. It’s part of Trump’s character. Nothing negative goes unanswered because, for Trump, an unanswered slight has the air of concession or surrender. Finally, it’s his chronic indiscipline, his jumping randomly from one subject to another without rhyme, reason or larger strategy. In a week packed with confirmation hearings and Russian hacking allegations, what was he doing meeting with Robert Kennedy Jr., an anti-vaccine activist pushing the thoroughly discredited idea

Charles Krauthammer

that vaccines cause autism? We know from way back during the Republican debates that Trump himself has dabbled in this dubious territory. One could, however, write it off as one of many campaign oddities that would surely fade away. Not so, apparently. This is not good. The idea that vaccines cause autism originally arose in a 1998 paper in the medical journal The Lancet that was later found to be fraudulent and had to be retracted. Indeed, the lead researcher acted so egregiously that he was stripped of his medical license. Kennedy says that Trump asked him to chair a commission about vaccine safety. While denying that, the transition team does say that the commission idea remains open. Either way, the damage is done. The anti-vaccine fanatics seek any validation. This indirect endorsement from Trump is immensely harmful. Vaccination has prevented more childhood suffering and death than any other measure in history. With so many issues pressing, why even go there? The vaccination issue was merely an exclamation point on the scatter-brained randomness of the Trump transition. All of which contributes to the harried, almost wearying feeling that we are already well into the Trump presidency. Compare this to eight years ago and the near euphoria — overblown but nonetheless palpable — at the swearing-in of Barack Obama. Not since JFK had any new president enjoyed such genuine goodwill upon accession to office. And yet it turns out that such auspicious beginnings are not at all predictive. We could see it this same week. Tuesday night, there stood Obama giving a farewell address that only underscored the failure of a presidency so bathed in optimism at its start. The final speech, amazingly, could have been given, nearly unedited, in 2008. Why it even ended with “yes we can.” Is there more powerful evidence of the emptiness of the intervening two terms? When your final statement is a reprise of your first, you have unwittingly confessed to being nothing more than a historical parenthesis. — Charles Krauthammer is a columnist for Washington Post Writers Group.

Eudora mayor reappointed, has big plans for this year E

Area Roundup

udora residents can call Tim Reazin mayor for another year. On Monday, at its first meeting of the year, the Eudora City Commission appointed Reazin mayor and Ruth Hughs vice mayor for 2017. Reazin and Hughs had served in the same positions in 2016. Reazin said he expects a busy year and one of accomplishment. That will start at the Jan. 23 meeting with a 7 p.m. public hearing on creating a tax increment financing district at the former Nottingham Elementary School property. The commission will consider creation of the district after the public hearing. If the TIF district is approved, the city will ramp up the effort to finalize a redevelopment agreement with CBC, the Kansas City, Mo., real estate firm selected in April to develop the Nottingham property, Reazin said. The city purchased the former elementary school from the Eudora school district in 2015 for $850,000. A subsequent agreement with CBC committed the city to working exclusively with the developer. That agreement was meant to give assurances to potential tenants for the project. “I expect to have groundbreaking on that project in 2017,” Reazin said. “I’m hearing a lot of good things from CBC. We have to work

out that first contract with an anchor store and then everything will fall in place.” The goal of a groundbreaking within the next year adds urgency to the City Commission’s moving forward with an athletic complex at the Eudora school district’s south campus. The complex would replace the football and soccer fields that are part of the Nottingham site, Reazin said. With the school board’s approval of the arrangement, Reazin said his goal is to make substantial progress on the development of the complex this year in hopes that it will be a key recreational facility for the city for many years. A third big item on Reazin’s 2017 agenda is resolution of the decade-long dispute with Douglas Country Rural Water District No. 4, which centers on how the city can provide water service to areas that currently are in the rural water district’s territory. That, too, was progressing,


safeguards employed by the court to ensure objectivity, that prospective jurors would be continually reminded to assume Satoe’s innocence during court proceedings. In addition, Martin said the fact that Wheeler faced allegations of rape and multiple felony charges, but pleaded to a single battery charge, might further encourage a presumption of innocence in Satoe’s case. Both Wheeler and Satoe were arrested in November 2014 after they were accused of raping a 19-year-old freshman woman in their dormitory room. Both were released from jail the same day after posting a $75,000 bond each. Both were expelled from Haskell.


Prosecutor CJ Rieg argued, however, that the courts have enough precautionary measures in place to ensure a pool of unbiased jurors could be found. Rieg used the trial of Dustin Walker as an example, arguing Walker — who was most recently convicted of first-degree felony murder — went through three trials in Lawrence, and even then attorneys were able to find jurors who had not heard of the case. Martin agreed with Rieg and denied Keck’s request. She noted, alongside the typical


and his goal was to have an agreement this year, Reazin said. lll

The Eudora Chamber of Commerce has canceled its annual awards banquet that was originally scheduled for today because of the predicted ice storm. The event has been rescheduled for 6 p.m. Feb. 18 at Bluejacket Crossing Vineyard & Winery. lll

Even if there’s poor weather next week, it will not stop the Mullet Ride, scheduled for Jan. 21 in Baldwin City. That annual gravel-road bicycle tour will go on rain or shine, organizer Gerald Arantowicz vows. He does concede there will be many more riders should the day be unseasonably warm, as it was two years ago when more than 100 riders joined the tour past historic sites in the rural areas around Baldwin City. Pleasant weather would also be the wish of the town’s restaurants and coffee shops, which benefit from the appetites of those riding the tour’s 12-, 28- and 43-mile route options. The ride will depart at 10 a.m. from Antiques on the Prairie at Sixth and Main streets in Baldwin City. No fee is required to join the tour. — This is an excerpt from Elvyn Jones’ Area Roundup column, which appears on

Before Wheeler’s conviction, he also faced trial, though jurors were unable to reach a unanimous decision. In both Wheeler and Satoe’s separate trials, prosecutors claimed the two men attacked the woman, while the defendants argued the encounter was consensual. Satoe’s second trial is scheduled to begin on Feb. 21. — Public safety reporter Conrad Swanson can be reached at 832-7284. Follow him on Twitter: @Conrad_Swanson

CHICAGO A scathing Justice Department investigation concluded that the Chicago Police Department is beset by widespread racial bias, a pattern of excessive force, poor training and feckless oversight of officers accused of misconduct. The finding issued Friday came as the Justice Department and the city of Chicago issued “a statement of agreement” detailing remedies to improve policing in the nation’s third-largest city and repair a shattered public trust. “One of my highest priorities as Attorney General has been to

This is nothing short of a rescue mission.” Leading up to the vote, some Republicans expressed concern about repealing the law without agreeing on a replacement. But lawmakers voted almost entirely along party lines, with only nine Republicans opposing the measure. Democrats repeatedly slammed Republicans for having no alternative plan, saying a repeal will jeopardize the health care of 30 million v STORY CONTINUES ON 2B

Think you know the timing of breakaway ice? Bet on it Irish bookmaker offers chilling odds John Bacon @jmbacon USA TODAY

It could be global warming or it could just be nature having its way, but you can bet that another major chunk of ice will soon break off an Antarctica ice shelf. Seriously, you can bet on it. Irish bookmaker Paddy Power is offering 6-to-1 odds that an iceberg almost the size of Delaware

— or Luxembourg, in European terms — will break free this month from the Larsen C Ice Shelf. An ice shelf, for the lesser learned, is a permanent floating sheet of ice that connects to a landmass, the National Snow and Ice Data Center tells us. “You don’t have to be Captain of the Titanic to spot this is a serious problem for the planet, so we thought we’d do our bit to raise some awareness,” Paddy Power said in a statement. February and March are summer months in the southern hemisphere and are the “most likely months for the biggest break-up since Brad Pitt and An-

gelina Jolie,” the bookmaker says. The odds that the ice shelf will “calve” are posted at 7-2 for each of those months. By October, the odds slide to 25-1. Of course, Paddy Power’s odds could be way off. Three weeks before the U.S. presidential election, the gambling giant was already paying off bettors who put money on Hillary Clinton to defeat Donald Trump. Paddy Power figured Clinton had an 85.7% chance of winning. The gambling may be all fun and games, but the break is serious. Project Midas, a British Antarctic research project, has been tracking the rift for almost two

years. The researchers say that after a few months of steady, incremental advance, the rift grew suddenly by a further 11 miles during the second half of December. Only a final 12 miles of ice now connects the iceberg to its parent ice shelf. “This event will fundamentally change the landscape of the Antarctic Peninsula,” researchers report. Long term, the Larsen C Ice Shelf may find the same fate as Larsen B, which disintegrated in 2002 following a similar split. Contributing: Kim Hjelmgaard and Doyle Rice

Ethics chief steps in in Trump business flap House panel leader hints at investigation of Shaub’s office Fredreka Schouten @fschouten USA TODAY

The Republican chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee is taking aim at the federal government’s ethics czar, after the official publicly criticized President-elect Donald Trump’s plan to retain ownership of his businesses. Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, charged that Office of Government Ethics Director Walter Shaub was “blurring the line between public relations and official ethics guidance” and summoned him to appear for an interview with the committee’s staff by month’s end. In a letter issued Thursday, Chaffetz also hinted his committee could open a congressional probe of the agency, noting that WASHINGTON

his panel “may at any time investigate any matter.” Chaffetz’s move came a day after Shaub publicly rebuked Trump’s business arrangement as “wholly inadequate” to avoid conflicts of interest between his official duties and the sprawling real-estate and licensing empire he and his family control. “We can’t risk creating the perception that government leaders would use their official positions for profit,” Shaub said during a Wednesday news conference at the Brookings Institution in Washington. This week, Trump and his lawyer, Sheri Dillon, said he would walk away from management of the Trump Organization and put his business interests in a trust to be overseen by his adult sons and a Trump executive. Executives will not pursue any new foreign deals during his presidency, Dillon said. An ethics adviser also will join the company’s management team to help avoid conflicts, she said. Chaffetz’s letter did not mention Shaub’s public comments at

Brookings but referred to an unusual string of tweets his office issued in late November, praising Trump for moving to divest his business interests. Trump has not committed to divesting, and the tweets raised eyebrows. A spokesman for Shaub’s agency did not immediately respond to a request for comment about Chaffetz’s letter. Shaub’s five-year term expires in January 2018. Rep. Elijah Cummings of Maryland, the top Democrat on the House Oversight panel, objected to Chaffetz’s push to inprivately. terview Shaub Cummings said any questioning should occur in public “to avoid any perception that he is being unfairly targeted behind closed doors for expressing his views.” On Twitter, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., argued that Chaffetz’s move mirrored a short-lived attempt by House Republicans earlier this month to gut the independent Office of Congressional Ethics, which polices potential wrongdoing by House members.

The resulting deficit in trust and accountability is not just bad for residents — it’s also bad for dedicated police officers trying to do their jobs safely and effectively.” Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel called the incidents described in the report “sobering. Police misconduct will not be tolerated anywhere in this city, and those who break the rules will be held accountable for their actions,” he said. “I want to be clear, the Chicago Police Department and the City of Chicago is already on the road to reform, and there are no U-Turns on that road.” The Justice Department rushed to conclude its 13-month investigation as President Obama prepares to leave office next week, and President-elect Donald Trump — who has vowed to lead Corrections & Clarifications USA TODAY is committed to accuracy.

a more police-friendly administration — is set to take the reins. It’s unclear what, if any, action the Trump administration will take to follow up on the findings of the probe. Trump’s nominee for attorney general, Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions, expressed concerns during his Senate confirmation hearing this week that federal litigation against police departments “can undermine respect for police officers.” Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., said Sessions, in private conversations, declined to commit to following through on recommendations in the report. The probe was launched in December 2015 following the courtordered release of chilling video that showed a white officer, Jason Van Dyke, fire 16 shots at 17-yearold Laquan McDonald as he appeared to be running away from police during a pursuit. The video — and the city’s decision to pitch a legal battle to keep it out of public view — as well as the fact that it took 400 days for the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office to file murder charges against Van Dyke led to widespread public outrage and weeks of protests in Chicago. Even before the McDonald case, the police department’s image had been tarnished in the African-American community by allegations of cops torturing and beating suspects and carrying out a disproportionate number of street stops of African-American and Latino men.

Even before the McDonald case, the police department’s image had been tarnished in the African-American community by allegations of cops torturing and beating suspects. Police brutality cases cost the city more than $500 million in settlements and legal costs from 2004 to 2014. In 2015, Emanuel announced a $5.5 million reparations package to victims of former police commander Jon Burge, who from the early 1970s to early 1990s was accused of overseeing the torture and beating of dozens of mostly AfricanAmerican suspects. Emanuel initially resisted calls for a Justice probe of the city’s police department but later relented. After the fallout following the release of the McDonald video, Emanuel apologized for the city’s handling of the situation and vowed to improve transparency and restore public trust. He convened a Police Accountability Task Force, which in April issued a report that called on the department to “acknowledge its racist history and overhaul its handling of excessive force allegations.” The task force also recommended more than 100 reforms. Emanuel and the city council have embraced several of the task force’s recommendations.

Ice storm may be worst in decade Power outages, risky travel mean hunker down this weekend Doyle Rice

@usatodayweather USA TODAY

What could be the worst ice storm in 10 years began Friday in the central U.S., as forecasters warned it will unload freezing rain on a 1,000-mile swath from the central Plains to the mid-Atlantic over the weekend. The storm is expected to cause downed trees, extensive power outages and make driving dangerous or impossible as roads turn into sheets of ice. Ice was already accumulating by midday Friday from Oklahoma to Indiana, the Weather Channel said, with downed trees and nearly 4,000 power outages reported in Springfield, Mo. The worst conditions could be centered on portions of northwestern Texas, western Oklahoma and central Kansas, where there is the potential for about an inch of ice to encase the region followed by 30-mph winds, AccuWeather meteorologist Eddie Walker said. Some of the big cities likely to be hit by the ice include Topeka, Oklahoma City, Kansas City, St. Louis, Indianapolis, Columbus, Pittsburgh and Washington, D.C., AccuWeather said. Dozens of flights were canceled at airports in St. Louis and Oklahoma City on Friday as freezing rain moved across the region. Travel will be hazardous for hundreds of miles along Interstate 35, I-40 and I-70 in the central states, said AccuWeather meteorologist Brett Rossio.

In southern Missouri on Friday morning, some areas already picked up a tenth of an inch of ice on outdoor surfaces, according to Andy Foster, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service. An ice storm warning, in place through Sunday in many areas, was already in effect for most of Kansas and Missouri and parts of Oklahoma. Missouri’s department of transportation said it could be the worst ice storm in 10 years there and said motorists should avoid travel through Sunday. “Ice is the most difficult storm to fight,” said maintenance engineer Becky Allmeroth. By Saturday, widespread freezing rain and/or sleet will extend from the central and southern Plains into the Ohio Valley and mid-Atlantic states, according to the Weather Channel. The ice storm will continue in the central Plains on Sunday. In Kansas, up to 1 inch of ice was expected to fall in “multiple

rounds” of freezing rain through Monday, making travel extremely hazardous, the weather service in Kansas City warned. Freezing rain occurs during a “warm air sandwich” in the atmosphere, in which a layer of warm air hovers between cold layers above and below it. Precipitation that begins as snow at the highest level of cold air melts into rain in the warm air, then refreezes as it falls into the cold layer near the surface. Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens called a state of emergency Thursday and said the Missouri Transportation Department started pre-treating roads and would continue to do so throughout the storm. Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin declared a disaster emergency for all 77 counties in the state in advance of the storm. The Weather Channel has named the storm Winter Storm Jupiter. Contributing: The Springfield (Mo.)

plain higher confidence. Inflation-adjusted economic growth rose 3.5% in the third quarter and could rise another 2.8% in the fourth quarter, Paulsen says. That’s a big relief for investors who endured real growth of less than 2% the past two years. Some of the gains are finding their way to middle America, Paulsen says, citing the current “semblance of full employment.” Corporate profit growth is also expected to grow for the second quarter in a row. Greater confidence comes at a price. The priceto-earnings ratio on the Standard & Poor’s 500 index has risen to 20.9 times, based on adjusted earnings the past 12 months. That’s markedly higher than the 18.8 average since 1988, according to S&P Dow Jones Indices. Paulsen says greater confidence could build the foundation for more gains.

Wells Fargo earnings miss estimate, but loans rise Kevin McCoy and Roger Yu @kmccoynyc, @ByRogerYu USA TODAY

The outlook for banks may be improving, but Wells Fargo could lag behind its peers. The San Francisco-based bank on Friday reported fourth-quarter financial results that missed Wall Street analysts’ forecasts for earnings per share and revenue as Wells Fargo provided a more detailed look at the aftermath of the scandal over millions of ac-

counts opened without customer authorization. Revenue was flat, and net income fell 5.4% compared with last year’s fourth quarter. In December, new checking accounts sank 40% and new credit card applications dropped 43% in comparison with 2015. The news wasn’t all bad. The bank reported early signs that the decline in new checking accounts and credit card applications may be easing or even turning around. Total average loans and total average deposits were both up 6%. The number of primary consum-


er checking customers rose 3.5% year over year. Net interest income also increased. The mixed results encouraged Wells Fargo CEO Tim Sloan, who got the top job with predecessor John Stumpf’s abrupt October retirement after the scandal cost

the bank $185 million in penalties and threatened an estimated $1.7 billion in litigation costs. “We’re just excited that we saw what seems to be an inflection point in the midst of the fourth quarter. And so we’re starting to see some real positive attributes in some of those metrics, not only in terms of account activity but also in terms of customer service and experience,” Sloan told analysts during a conference call. The bank is complying with regulators’ orders for new internal safeguards, overhauled the incentive compensation plan that

pressured employees to open the unauthorized accounts and hiked minimum pay rates for roughly 26,000 lower-level workers. But that wasn’t enough to prevent CFRA equity analyst Cathy Seifert from downgrading her recommendation on Wells Fargo shares to “hold” from “buy.” “We note WFC is seeing a revenue hit from its sales practices scandal,” Seifert wrote in a research report. “While it is taking numerous steps to overcome this issue, we think near-term results may lag peers, removing a catalyst from the shares.”

rules in PBS’ ‘Victoria’

Bill Keveney

@billkev USA TODAY

A legendary English queen sheds prudish stereotypes in PBS Masterpiece’s Victoria (Sunday, 9 ET/PT, check local listings). “As soon as I started working on it, people would say, ‘She’s old and dour and stern and wears black.’ The image people have couldn’t be further from who she was,” says Jenna Coleman (Doctor Who), who plays the longreigning 19th-century monarch in the eight-hour drama. “She was vibrant, vivid, passionate, tempestuous — and often wrong,” Coleman says. “I find her quite amazing.” Victoria, which inherits the time slot of another British period piece, Downton Abbey, covers the first three years of the queen’s 63-year reign, from when the diminutive 18-year-old inherited the throne in 1837 until she and her husband, Prince Albert (Tom Hughes), become parents to the first of their nine children. The series marks a departure from the clichéd portrayal of haughty Victorian Age manners, which then reflected an effort by social climbers to distinguish themselves from the lower classes, writer Daisy Goodwin says. Victoria was hardly a prude, she adds, as evidenced by the teenage queen’s diaries. “She’s just met Albert and writes, ‘Albert’s so divine. He’s wearing white, cashmere britches, with nothing on underneath.’ I was about the same age as Victoria and I thought, ‘Wow! She’s a real woman. She’s a girl like me.’ … I wondered what it would be like if all that adolescent tumult and passion were translated into the most powerful woman at the time.”


Rufus Sewell plays Lord Melbourne, an adviser and father figure to young Queen Victoria (Jenna Coleman), in PBS Masterpiece’s Victoria.

Victoria’s mood was always on display, a sharp contrast with the inexpressive public face of the reigning monarch, her great-greatgranddaughter Elizabeth II. “Victoria was like the weather. You knew instantly whether she was happy, sad or cross,” Goodwin says. Victoria’s behavior reflects her passion, Coleman says. “From all accounts, she gobbled her food down. When she laughed, it was hearty, her mouth wide open.

She got drunk. She loved dances. She was never contained.” Despite her strengths, Victoria faced many challenges, including her power-hungry mother and her mother’s suitor. She had no help from others, including Lord Melbourne (Rufus Sewell), the British prime minister who became a friend and father figure who was described at the time as a half-lover, Coleman says. The queen’s reign also is intertwined with Albert, her Germanborn first cousin. Both their families wanted them to marry; he was 19 and she had just become queen when he came to England so she could propose to him, as required by protocol. “In terms of personalities,

they’re very different. Albert is quite cerebral, almost mathematical. There’s a sensitivity to him that gives him a quiet strength,” Hughes says, while Victoria’s “like a pressure cooker. She needs to be rooted somehow for her to express herself. I feel like Albert provides that. For him, she provides the vitality of emotion that would draw him out of his shell.” Victoria needed a strong spirit to surmount her youth, sex and size, but those traits helped soften hostile attitudes toward the monarchy, Goodwin says. “You had a lot of old men coming to the throne, having led scandalous lives. They were extravagant. People hated them,” she says. “Victoria was the new, young thing. Because she was a woman, I think it changed people’s perceptions toward the monarchy. They could feel protective toward her. The Brits love their queens.”


‘The Young Pope’ is an odd, eccentric fever dream Jude Law as a young, American pope in an HBO series from an Oscar-winning Italian filmmaker? What could possibly go wrong? PREVIEW Everything and ROBERT nothing, depending BIANCO on how you look at it. If, for example, what you’re looking for is a fever dream of Vatican visual splendor, shimmering around a Roman holiday of eccentricities like jewels on a papal crown, then this show is for you. Especially if your biggest complaint is that too many TV series look and feel the same, or seem to be treading over the same tired, uninspired territory — well, that’s one you won’t be lodging here. Even the way this 10-episode series is airing is unusual: twice a week, like the old Batman — a series The Young Pope (Sunday, 9 ET/PT, then Sundays and Mondays, eeEE out of four) oddly resembles, at least in terms of visual quirkiness. If, on the other hand, you’re looking for coherence, a sense of the spontaneity of real life, or a set of characters you believe might actually exist in Rome — or anywhere else — well, look elsewhere. Created and directed by Oscar-winner Paolo Sorrentino

Jude Law is the former Lenny Belardo in The Young Pope. (The Great Beauty), Pope at least lets you know what you’re in for from the get-go. We’re introduced to Law’s (fictional) Pope Pius XIII, the former Lenny Belardo, as he dreams he’s crawling out from under a mountain of babies in Venice’s St. Marks Square. He puts on his papal flip-flops, heads to the shower (cue first bare-butt shot), puts on the robe hanging from a cross-shaped hook, and then drops it — giving us our second butt shot.


And all this before the opening credits. Lenny, as you might guess, is not your average pope. Aside from being young, handsome and American, he smokes (continually), guzzles diet soda, and delights in doing and saying things that shock the College of Cardinals. Those things include keeping a kangaroo as a pet, violating the sanctity of the confessional, questioning the existence of God, and installing the nun who raised

him, Sister Mary (Diane Keaton), as his closest adviser. Oh, and Lenny might also be insane. Chosen either by the Holy Spirit or by cardinals who thought he’d be an easy-to-manipulate, easy-to-market moderate, Lenny is anything but. A Roman Catholic Church that has in large part embraced a “God is Love” theology finds itself led by a pope who leans toward Old Testament wrath. That’s a problem. An even bigger problem is the cardinals didn’t realize they were electing a sociopath, which is strange, as it seems painfully obvious. They thought, at worst, they were getting a rube among the sophisticates. Instead, they got Caligula. Or so it appears. It’s hard to say exactly who Lenny is, or whom Law is playing, because the character is a blank canvas on which Sorrentino seems to project whatever inspires him from scene to scene. Like the Vatican itself, Pope is beautiful, lush and carefully, formally composed. It’s also oddly airless and cold, more a series of striking pictures than a living and breathing slice of life, one that leaves you with no way in and little reason to care. Style doesn’t just trump substance here; it’s the only substance The Young Pope has. And that seems wrong.

Dear Annie: Two years ago, my brother and his wife, who have no kids, took my then-8-year-old son on a great trip. They returned very exhausted after a week, having had a wonderful time. Once home, my brother informed me — by demonstrating on me physically — that he had hit my son in the head to discipline him. I was immediately upset but did not show it. I asked my son about it later, and he said it had happened a few times. When broaching the topic to my son, I remained neutral, though I did assure my son when he suggested he may have deserved it that people should not hit other people in the head. Because I see my brother only a couple

Dear Annie

of times a year (he lives far away), I waited a while to have time to reflect. I wrote a thank-you note for the trip. After a month or so, I wrote a very short note to my brother, saying again that I really appreciated the trip and also saying that though I realize he didn’t know I feel this way, I do not want him to hit my son in the head again. My brother was furious and cut me off entirely.

Football playoffs dominate O Every network except CBS has gone into Saturday night hibernation. That’s because of an AFC Divisional Round playoff game between the New England Patriots and the Houston Texans (7 p.m.). These events attract huge ratings, particularly for a night normally devoted to repeats. The numbers may not be Super Bowl-huge, but on par with ‘‘American Idol’’ finales in that show’s heyday. A 2015 playoff game between the Carolina Panthers and the Seattle Seahawks drew an audience of 31 million, making it the most-watched Saturday night broadcast in the history of the Fox Network. And you thought that honor would have gone to ‘‘COPS.’’ O “MythBusters: The Search” (8 p.m., Science, TVPG) takes on two questions that Adam and Jamie never fully answered: Can you paint with explosives? And does drinking alcohol make you more creative? I hope they don’t try both of those experiments at once. O After a couple declares their openness to an “Open Marriage” (7 p.m., Lifetime), their friends and family begin to feel confused and betrayed. Tilky Jones, Nikki Leigh, Kelly Dowdle and Jason Tobias star in this 2017 shocker.

Tonight’s other highlights O “The Guardians” (9 p.m., Animal Planet) investigate a dog fighting ring. O Michael Fassbender, Marion Cotillard, James McAvoy, Frank Skinner, Gary and Paul O’Donovan, Pete Tong and the Heritage Orchestra appear on “The Graham Norton Show” (9 p.m., BBC America, TV-14). O Felicity Jones hosts “Saturday Night Live” (10:30 p.m., NBC, TV-14), featuring musical guest Sturgill Simpson. Cult choice A drifter thug (Corey Allen) entices a bored Los Angeles housewife (Kate Manx) to become a plaything for his sadistic friend (Warren Oates) in the 1960 thriller “Private Property” (9 p.m., TCM). Long thought lost, this was restored and re-released in 2016. Saturday series Two hours of “Dateline” (7 p.m., NBC) ... A new breed of dealer on “Lethal Weapon” (7 p.m., Fox, r, TV-14) ... “To Tell the Truth” (7 p.m., ABC, r, TV-PG) ... Carlotta’s protective side emerges on “Star” (8 p.m., Fox, r, TV-14) ... Two helpings of “Match Game” (8 p.m. and 10 p.m., ABC, r, TV-PG) ... A vintage helping of “Saturday Night Live” (9 p.m., NBC, TV14).

It really hurts my heart to think that my son and I will not be able to visit him or my sister-in-law or her other relatives. My sister-in-law has tried to reason with him, but he will not be moved, and I don’t want to push her to get involved more. I called and wrote to apologize for hurting his feelings. No response. My mom feels I am to blame for not trusting that the child needed to be disciplined in that way, though she always taught us never to hit other people. Any advice? — Sad Sister in Pennsylvania Dear Sad: Take some solace in the fact that you are absolutely right.

For Saturday, Jan. 14: This year you interact well with others, especially on an individual level. However, you don’t do as well with crowds and groups. Do not fight the inevitable.

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) +++Hanging close to home could contribute to a potential case of cabin fever. Tonight: Head home early. Taurus (April 20-May 20) +++++Your creativity surges as you face several hassles and some “What If” issues. Tonight: Enjoy a special person in your life. Gemini (May 21-June 20) +++++You have the right words and the originality to make an impression on others, especially a child or loved one. Tonight: The party could end up at your home. Cancer (June 21-July 22) +++You would be wise to review your budget before taking on any more commitments. Tonight: Visit with a neighbor or relative. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) ++++You will bring a lot of excitement to those around you just by being yourself. Tonight: Let it all hang out.

hitting a child — especially on the head — is unacceptable and ineffective (it’s also illegal in all 50 states). Sandra Graham-Bermann, a psychology professor and researcher at the University of Michigan, says that though the child might momentarily stop problematic behavior when hit or spanked, it’s only because he or she is afraid. The lesson doesn’t stick for the long term. Positive reinforcement, as well as remaining calm during tantrums, is more effective at encouraging good behavior. Try sharing this research with your brother.

Succulents are versatile, easy to grow


ver the last decade or so, succulent plants have gone from being a niche of the indoor plant industry to being available in nearly every garden center, hardware, grocery, and even some retail stores. Why are they getting so much attention? Probably because they are easy to grow, look pretty in a variety of designs and displays, and offer so much versatility. The term succulent is a common name given to a large group of plants characterized by thick, fleshy stems and/or leaves that

Varieties of echevaria (top) and crassula (below) are popular succulent house plants.

When watering, set succulents in the sink or bathtub, or use saucers. Wet the soil until it is completely moistened and water comes out the bottom of the pot. Allow excess water to drain from the pot before putting it back in the window. If using saucers, dump any excess that remains after a few minutes. Remember that plants’ water needs change with the seasons because of changes in day length, temperature, humidity and growth rate. Fertilize as desired when plants are actively growing. Succulents are survivors, so they can get by with the minimal supplementation as long as they are occasionally re-potted. (Most commercially available potting mixes contain fertilizer.) Fertilize more frequently only if you want to up the growth rate. Pests are rare, but keep an eye for them just in case.

Common indoor plant pests include scale insects, mealybugs, spider mites, and aphids. Popular, easy-togrow succulents for indoors include multiple varieties of crassula, echeveria, aeonium, bromeliads, and others. Most of them are sold with tags only identifying them as a succulent, though, so unless you want to impress your gardening friends, just look for a plant shape and color that meets your fancy. Many succulents are also suitable for growing outdoors, including the ever-popular sedum. — Jennifer Smith is a former horticulture extension agent for K-State Research and Extension and horticulturist for Lawrence Parks and Recreation.

How to use concrete floor leveler


sing a concrete floor leveler to create a smooth and even surface is a labor intensive but perfectly manageable project. With a heavy duty drill, some five-gallon buckets and a strong back, you can get started. Step 1: Remove all floor coverings and debris. Use a damp sponge or mop to clean the surface thoroughly. Step 2: Patch cracks and other imperfections with a concrete patch material and allow the surface to dry completely.

Tom Keegan

KU waits for it all to click for Vick For many, statistics are the first things studied to see where basketball players are either falling short or standing out. For coaches, it tends to be the last place, but they do get around to it. Even for coaches, some numbers leap right off the page. Kansas coach Bill Self mentioned a pair of them in regards to sixth man Lagerald Vick, a long, slender, 6-foot-5, 175-pound sophomore from Memphis. Vick has a quick first step, which coupled with his long arms gives him tremendous potential as a disruptive defender capable of prowling the Vick passing lanes for steals that become dunks. Always beware of the word potential. It means it hasn’t happened yet. After mentioning that Vick and Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk both are shooting .444 from 3-point range, Self momentarily shocked the room into silence when he cited Vick’s steal numbers: Nine in 407 minutes. At first, it didn’t make sense. Upon further reflection, it lost its shock value. An inexperienced player still paralyzed by thinking about what he’s supposed to be doing, instead of instinctively doing it, Vick too often is neither here nor there, rather over there, outside the play. Sometimes, it’s better to do the wrong thing than to do nothing at all. Too often, an inexperienced athlete’s fear of being in the wrong place doing the wrong thing can turn him into a real nowhere man, sitting in his nowhere land, making all his nowhere plans for nobody, as John Lennon might have put it. Vick sometimes lives in that land on the court. Those moments will become fewer and fewer as he gains experience, the sooner the better for a Kansas team using a seven-man rotation. “I don’t think he’s very active,” Self said. “He’s not rebounding, not creating extra possessions.” Vick has been all or nothing as a rebounder. He has totaled more than three rebounds in just 4 of 15 games, all four of those coming in an early season, five-game stretch: Duke (five), Siena (eight), Georgia (eight), UNC Asheville (nine). “He and Josh (Jackson) would be our best two offensive rebounders, and Josh is at times, but Lagerald hasn’t been, and of course he should be more active on the defensive end,” Self said. “That’s not being mean, that’s just a fact.” As for Vick averaging one steal every 45 minutes, Self said, “a guy that athletic ... that can’t be. So that tells you that I think what he can improve on as much as anything is his activity, and we’ve said this a lot, but it’s a fact. It’s a fact.” Vick proved early in the season, during that productive stretch, he’s capable of inserting himself into the game, so he can do it again.

KANSAS GUARD DEVONTÉ GRAHAM, LEFT, TAKES OFF DOWN THE COURT after grabbing a steal from Oklahoma State guard Jawun Evans on Jan. 19, 2016 at Gallagher-Iba Arena in Stillwater, Okla.

Oklahoma State offers greater challenge By Matt Tait

Despite their 0-4 conference record and current position at the bottom of the Big 12 standings, the Oklahoma State Cowboys still rank in the top half in 10 of the 21 team statistics the conference tracks. For a first-year head coach still in the middle of install-

ing his offensive, defensive, philosophical and cultural concepts, those numbers represent hope for OSU’s Brad Underwood. According to Kansas coach Bill Self, they’re also representative of the job that was done before Underwood took over, a transition that was brought about, at least in some way, by season-ending injuries to the Cowboys’

starting backcourt a season ago. “This is just a fact,” Self said Thursday during his weekly meeting with the media. “(Former OSU coach) Travis (Ford) drew a short straw last year with (Phil) Forte and (Jawun) Evans being out (with injuries). You’ve got arguably the two leading (backcourt) scorers in the league and you don’t

have either of them. And then Brad was just able to inherit that, plus a kid, (Jeffrey) Carroll, who has really gotten much better this year with the new system. So I think he (Underwood) benefited from that without question.” Self, whose second-ranked Jayhawks will host Underwood’s Cowboys at 1 p.m.


ASU transfer Cunliffe officially joins Jayhawks By Matt Tait

ARIZONA STATE TRANSFER SAM CUNLIFFE made his commitment to Kansas official on Thursday.

When it comes to recruiting, there are few things as valuable as making it official. And on Friday evening, that’s exactly what the Kansas men’s basketball team did with Arizona State transfer Sam Cunliffe. Cunliffe, a 6-foot-6, 200-pound Seattle native who transferred from ASU after the first semester of his freshman season, officially joined the Jayhawks Thurs-

day and is eligible to begin practicing with the team immediately. He will sit out the upcoming semester and the first semester of the 2017-18 season and be eligible to compete for the Jayhawks one year from now. KU coach Bill Self said the opportunity to add a player of Cunliffe’s ability is great news for the Jayhawks both now and in the future. “We’d seen Sam play in


Chiefs playoff game moved to primetime By Dave Skretta AP Sports Writer

Kansas City, Mo. — The AFC divisional playoff game between the Steelers and Chiefs on Sunday has been moved from an early afternoon kickoff to primetime because of an ice storm due to hit the Kansas City area this weekend.

The game was originally scheduled to kick off at 12:05 p.m. Central time. It will now start at 7:20 p.m. to give road crews and public safety officials more time to treat roads and parking lots. “If people are going to the game, slow down, leave early and be cautious,” said Troy Schulte, the city man-

ager for Kansas City, Mo., where Arrowhead Stadium sits just off Interstate 70. The forecast called for ice to move into the area Friday, and persistent cold temperatures throughout today and Sunday. More precipitation is expected Sunday, though mostly in the form of cold rain. The time change means

the Packers-Cowboys game scheduled to kick off at 3:40 p.m. Central time on Fox on Sunday will serve as the lead-in for the SteelersChiefs game, which will remain on NBC. The Chiefs have already played a couple of home games in inclement weather

NBA Roundup The Associated Press

76ers 102, Hornets 93 Philadelphia — Joel Embiid scored 24 points, blocked three shots and led Philadelphia to its third straight victory Friday night. The Sixers are on their first three-game winning streak since they won four straight from Dec. 29, 2013 to Jan. 4, 2014. Led by Embiid, the Sixers have won five of six games overall and are no longer the league laughingstock. Embiid, a former Kansas standout, made six of 12 shots, grabbed eight rebounds and has made basketball fun again in Philadelphia. Embiid waved his arms while fans chanted “Trust the Process!” at him at the free-throw line. Embiid, the rookie center, even heard “MVP!” chants in the final minutes for his role in transforming the Sixers over the last month from cellar dwellers to a competitive team. Embiid’s only weakness was his 0-for-5 3-point shooting. Nicolas Batum scored 19 points and Kemba Walker had 17 for the Hornets. Embiid has brightened the Sixers’ outlook the same way he lights up social media. Embiid and WWE star Triple H (Hunter Hearst Helmsley) became social media friends this week and exchanged friendly tweets. Embiid said he was a fan of the wrestler and used his pregame intro to mimic Triple H. Embiid walked out to the wrestler’s theme music, “The Game,” by Motorhead, cocked his head back and spewed water into the air like Triple H would before a main event WrestleMania bout. Triple H noticed and tweeted at Embiid, “Still have to perfect the water-to-spit ratio... Not bad for a first attempt. #MopTheFloor #NBAVote Joel Embiid.” Embiid has used social media to enhance his profile, build his fan base and keep himself in contention for an All-Star spot. Embiid got the block-andwrestling connection rolling

Lions, Firebirds gear up for bowling seasons By Bobby Nightengale

With a strong mix of returners and newcomers, Lawrence High bowling coach Paula Bastemeyer is excited to see how her team performs. If the first few weeks of practice were any indication, the Lions look ready to put up high scores. They will open the season Tuesday in the Topeka Seaman quadrangular. One of the biggest changes this season is the addition of baker-style bowling during regional and state tournaments. The baker format is when five teammates alternate bowling toward one score. In the past, it was only used during the season-opening Free State Invitational, which was postponed this weekend because of weather. “I think everyone is excited about that,” Bastemeyer said. “It just becomes such a team thing. Everyone is cheering for every ball that everyone throws.” For the LHS girls bowling team, the Lions will have plenty of experience from varsity returners Morgan Daniels, Holly Evans, Hannah Reed and Diamonique Vann. Evans placed fifth at the Class 6A state tournament last year. Along with the return-


this season, including a frigid matchup with Tennessee in early December. The official temperature at kickoff that day was 1 degree, which tied the 1983 season finale against Denver for coldest game in Arrowhead Stadium history. As if the cold, wet weather expected Sunday night wasn’t bad enough, the Chiefs decided to re-sod the field between the hash marks earlier this week, which could leave a quagmire for the game. Chiefs president Mark Donovan said Monday the grounds crew monitored the forecast to determine the best time to do the work, but that forecast has changed con-

ers, the Lions are hoping for a strong season from sophomore Ashley Dykes. “I told the kids in our team meeting, I was very disappointed last year that we didn’t make it out of regionals,” Bastemeyer said. “We were fourth in boys and girls. I told them, ‘I’m not going to be that disappointed this year. We’re making it out of regionals.’ We’ve got the talent.” The LHS boys bowling squad will be led by returners Hunter Krom, Javier Lemmons and Cameron Stussie. Lemmons finished fourth at the state tournament last season and Bastemeyer said Stussie rolled an 804 three-game series in practice, including a perfect 300 game. “When I sit here and see their practice averages, we’ve got guys in the 200s and girls in the 190s,” Bastemeyer said. “Those are averages that can compete. Those are averages that can go out in our league and not have any problems. Every coach talks about it, a lot of it is just the mental game.”

Free State It will be a year of change for Free State High’s bowling teams, featuring plenty of newcomers to the varsity

siderably since the decision was made. “Based on milder temperatures coming in, felt like we could do it this weekend. Get it in place and we’ll be ready to go,” Donovan said. “It’s always something that our grounds crew is a little nervous on just because you want to see everything come off the truck the right way, you want it to go down the right way, but there’s enough lead time to get everything situated.” The Steelers are planning to leave for Kansas City earlier than normal today to account for the weather, though team officials did not specify when they planned to arrive. This isn’t the first time they’ve dealt with time changes, though. In 2004, Ben Roethlisberger’s first NFL start against the Miami Dol-

today at Allen Fieldhouse, recognizes this because he, too, benefited from inheriting a talented KU roster left behind by Roy Williams back in 2003. “I know we won more games when I got here because (Wayne) Simien, (Keith) Langford and (Aaron) Miles were still here,” he said. “That’s kind of how it goes sometimes.” Picked to finish seventh in the Big 12 a season ago, the Cowboys finished ninth, with just three conference wins, after Forte and Evans went down. With those two experienced and talented players back, the Cowboys were picked to finish seventh again heading into this season, but received one less vote in the preseason poll, likely because of the uncertainty surrounding the transition. Regardless of who’s coaching, what system they’re running and how things have played out thus far, the 10-6 Cowboys have three of the Big 12’s top nine scorers in Forte, Evans and Carroll, and figure to be a challenge for opposing defenses on any given night. “He’s one of the best players we’ll face,” Self said of Evans. “I’ve been watching tape, and (he’s) so good coming off ball screens, especially going to his right. He’s a great off-balance shooter. He can get all the way to the hole. He didn’t beat us by himself last year. Their team, collectively, whipped us pretty good. But he was by far the best player in the game when we played in Stillwater last year. He can get 25 any night, Forte can get 25 in any night and Carroll can get 25 in any night. They have got three guys in the perimeter that can really score the ball.” Those words were not empty threats from a coach trying to make sure his team was focused on its next opponent. They’re fact. And the thoughts from KU senior Landen Lucas was proof that the KU players get it. “Their record is kind of hard to look at because they’ve played all the top teams. They’ve gone to some tough places and played well, so they’re a good team,” Lucas said of OSU. “Those two guys are great guards. I do remember Forte. I’ve been here for a while so I remember him and his shooting abilities. He definitely can shoot it. And that’s been an emphasis (for) us in practice, bigs making sure we get out there on ball screens. Evans is a good player, too. We’re definitely gonna have our hands full.”


high school and thought he was a great prospect,” Self said in a press release. “Sam is a guy that is very athletic and can really shoot the basketball. He will be a player that will impact our program the day he becomes eligible. A lot of people view the year sitting out as a negative, but I think Sam is looking at it as a positive — to come in here, get acclimated and practice against some really good players. He wants to get better and will have an impact on our program that enhances our opportunity to have a good team next year.” Cunliffe started all 10 games he played at Arizona State in the fall of 2016 and averaged 9.5 points and 4.5 rebounds. He was 15-for-37 (40.5 percent) from 3-point range with five steals and three

Get after it on the glass

Take care of the ball

Landen Lucas delivering a fourth doubledigit rebound effort in KU’s fifth Big 12 game would go a long way toward helping the Jayhawks top the Cowboys, but Lucas is going to need some help on the defensive glass in this one. The Cowboys, who play fast and emphasize a relentless attack of the glass, have been terrific on the offensive boards, picking up an average of 15.5 offensive rebounds per game — compared to 12.4 per game for Kansas — and featuring eight players in double figures in that category, including four with 21 or more so far this season. The Jayhawks have the necessary pieces to control the boards, with Lucas’ size and the length and athleticism of players like Josh Jackson, Lagerald Vick, Carlton Bragg and Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk. But the most important quality that could factor into this rebounding battle is desire. KU, which ranks fourth in the conference in defensive rebound percentage (.708), showed great intensity and desire to hit the glass in the second half of Tuesday night’s comeback victory at Oklahoma and a similar effort for 40 minutes in this one should serve the Jayhawks well.

The Forte Factor

One way the Cowboys hope to pull off As he has proven in the past, the 5-foot-11, the upset is by forcing Kansas turnovers. fifth-year senior from Flower Mound, Texas, OSU, which ranks fifth nationally in turnwhose father, Phil Sr., played football at overs forced (294, 18.4 per game), is third Kansas, has the potential to take over games in the Big 12 in turnover margin (+3.8) and with his long-range shooting. No spot on the sits behind only West Virginia’s ferocious floor is too deep for Forte when he gets in a attack known as Press Virginia, which is rhythm, and his confidence and competitiveforcing 24.8 per game, tops in the counness have created a fearless shooter who try. Although Kansas, with its guard-heavy can single-handedly put a team on his back lineup, seems to be poised to handle preson the offensive end of the floor. Forte enters sure and suffocating defense, the Jayhawks today’s game shooting .396 from three-point have not seen a ton of that this season. KU range (42 of 106) and averaging 14.1 points has played just four teams in the Top 100 in per contest with 20 steals and a .961 percent turnovers forced and just one in the Top 50. clip from the free-throw line. In three career The Jayhawks’ lineup could have something trips to Allen Fieldhouse — including an OSU to do with that, but now that Big 12 play has win during his freshman season — Forte is arrived KU is not going to see many teams averaging 17 points per game and has conaltering the way they play. The style that nected on 9 of 20 three-pointers, including made first-year OSU coach Brad Underwood an incredible 7-of-10 effort during his sophoone of the hottest names in the country after more season. This guy has been around long a successful stint at Stephen F. Austin, has enough for KU’s veterans to know how imtaken root at Oklahoma State and turned the portant he is. Now it’s just a matter of finding Cowboys back into a defense to be reckoned a way to stop him. with — Matt Tait



Frank Mason vs. Jawun Evans

After a Jekyll and Hyde kind of night on Tuesday in Norman, Oklahoma that was capped by Kansas playing its best half of the season, the Jayhawks return home for a match-up with a new-look Oklahoma State team that is better than its record might indicate. While sitting at 0-4 in the conference, three of the Cowboys’ losses have come to West Virginia, Baylor and Iowa State, three teams that have spent the better part of the season in the Top 25. Although operating with a new coaching staff and a handful of new faces, there are a few OSU players who know what it’s like to beat Kansas. Oklahoma State is the only Big 12 team to have knocked off KU in each of the past four seasons and, because of that, the Cowboys certainly have KU’s attention. The Jayhawks, though riding a 15-game winning streak and poised to climb into the No. 1 spot in the polls with a victory, remain focused on getting better in a few key areas — defense, free throw shooting and production up front. Kansas has seen signs of improvement in all three areas during recent games but has yet to put together a complete effort that showcases all three of them, something head coach Bill Self remains in search of as the team reaches the midway point of the 2016-17 regular season schedule.

This showdown of the top two scorers in the Big 12 figures to be exciting from start to finish and should be one of the best individual match-ups we’ll see all season. With KU’s defense called into question during recent weeks, Mason will face his biggest test to date in the form of the 6-foot-1, 185-pound, lightning-quick guard who lit the Jayhawks up for 22 points, 8 assists and 6 rebounds in a 19-point OSU win last season in Stillwater. Evans was injured during the rematch so this will mark Mason and the Jayhawks’ first opportunity to face the talented sophomore since that night. One of the biggest things to watch in this match-up is size vs. quickness. Mason, who leads the Big 12 at 20.4 points per game, has been next to impossible to stop driving to the rim and Evans will have no chance at recovering if Mason gets his hips and shoulders by him on the drive. So look for the OSU guard to pester Mason into giving up the ball early and watch to see if Mason can stay in front of Evans long enough to prevent him from attacking the paint and setting up easy shots for opponents.

blocked shots. Cunliffe posted five games with 10 or more points, including a double-double with 23 points and 10 rebounds against The Citadel in November. Once Cunliffe made the decision to leave ASU, the next step came down to two options. “I knew I was going to either stay home and go to Seattle U. or go to a school like Kansas,” Cunliffe said in the release. “I feel my brand of basketball is how they play at Kansas. They move the ball, under a great coach, and I will be able to play with guys who play at the highest level. I wanted to play somewhere where I could be comfortable and I got all that on my visit. “I’m an unselfish player who wants to win,” Cunliffe added. “I want to get better every day. I feel sitting out a year is good because I can just come in and not worry about playing, just worry about

doing things the right way. I want to practice hard and make this team better. I want to make sure to pick stuff up so when I am ready, I can step right in.” Coming out of nationally known Rainier Beach High in Seattle, Cunliffe was ranked No. 36 in the final 2016 ranking, No. 41 in the ESPN100 and No. 45 by He averaged 21.6 points, 9.0 rebounds and 3.0 assists his senior season at Rainier Beach and in 2016 led the Vikings to their fourth state title in five years as he was named Class 3A state tournament Most Valuable Player. Cunliffe was the Seattle Times 2016 Player of the Year in the state of Washington. “We’ve recruited a lot kids out of Rainier Beach before and (KU assistant) Kurtis Townsend knows everybody up there,” Self said.
