Partnership aims to bring broadband to every school in Kansas By Peter Hancock



Ensuring that every classroom in our state has high-speed internet is the first essential step to enabling digital learning and unleashing the potential of our children to compete in the 21st century workforce.”

Topeka — Gov. Sam Brownback announced a new initiative Tuesday aimed at bringing affordable high-speed internet access to every school in the state over the next three years. The Kansas Connect and Learn Initiative will use as much as $100 million in federal and state utility funds, along with resources from a — Gov.

Nearly 2 million gallons of sewage overflows By Rochelle Valverde

10-20% of Kansas schools need to have fiberoptic connections installed or upgraded, according to estimates from Evan Marwell, founder of EducationSuperHighway.

As much as

$100M could be drawn from state and federal utility funds to help pay for the upgrades. EducationSuperHighway will contribute resources of its own for the project.

Close to 2 million gallons of raw sewage overflowed a manhole in south Lawrence, causing the city to issue a health and stream advisory for the area. The sewage overflow occurred near 31st and Louisiana streets after a pump failure Monday evening.

session, voted unanimously to approve the resignation of “an employee who was the subject of (a) pending investigation,” but declined to comment on whether that individual is in fact the South teacher who in October was accused of making racist remarks in class. What, exactly, that teacher is alleged to have said has never been revealed by the school district. David Cunningham, the district’s executive director of human resources and legal counsel, confirmed on Tuesday that the investigation of the South teacher had been completed. The findings of that investigation, however, have not been made publicly available, an action that Cunningham defended as standard protocol to protect the confidentiality of staff and students. “There are just certain things that I’m not at liberty to discuss. When it comes to personnel matters, we’re just very cautious and we don’t say a lot,” Cunningham told the Journal-World on Tuesday. “Everything that we’re talking about is not public,” he continued when asked why details of the investigation that resulted in Monday night’s resignation had not been disclosed by the district, even after being pressed by attendees at the school board’s meeting that evening for greater transparency in the matter. Cunningham said Tuesday that he could neither “confirm nor deny” if the employee whose resignation was announced Monday was, in fact, the South teacher whose investigation was completed this semester. “The fact is that stat-

utes protect the confidentiality of staff and students, and I can’t share information. Sometimes that puts me at a disadvantage. It leaves people wondering, ‘What exactly happened here?’” Cunningham said. “But I can’t overcome that challenge simply because I’m a public entity. I’m still bound by confidentiality rules.” Under the Kansas Open Records Act, public agencies — such as the school district and school board — have the right to close certain records at their discretion but are not bound by law to keep records closed. State statute requires that some information, including the “names, positions, salaries and lengths of service” of public officers and employees, be kept open. This creates a “tricky” balancing act for public entities trying to protect the privacy of employees while also honoring a parent’s right to know, notes school board member Jessica Beeson. “It’s difficult. And the thing is that we have a legal team that advises us on those courses of action given the circumstances of the entire case. There’s a lot of information that we receive. We talk it through and come up with what we think is the best course of action,” Beeson said. “As far as how that’s balanced with transparency, it really doesn’t have to do with naming individuals in certain contexts, but, really, how transparent are you in the process?” she added. “I think in that regard, we

could do much better as a district.” Not releasing information that stems from a personnel investigation, Beeson said, is a “protective” measure extended to all teachers as part of a negotiated contract with the Lawrence Education Association, the school district’s teachers union. On Monday, following the school board’s approval of the investigated employee’s resignation, Cunningham said that parents would be notified of the outcome at some point that evening or on Tuesday. Laken Howard, whose daughter attends South Middle School, said Tuesday afternoon that she had received an email from Principal Jennifer Bessolo earlier that day regarding the investigation of the South teacher. The email didn’t disclose much information, Howard said, other than notifying parents that the teacher, who has been suspended (with pay) since October pending the investigation, had submitted his resignation, effective at the end of the 2016-2017 school year, and will remain on administrative leave for the duration of the school year. Having lived in Lawrence her entire life, Howard said she was “surprised” to hear that racist remarks were allegedly being made in a classroom setting. While she understands the importance of due process in these cases, she still felt disappointed by the outcome of the South investigation.

“I feel like it’s a slap on the hand more than an actual disciplinary action, because he’s still getting paid,” Howard said of the South teacher’s resignation. Though her own daughter has never personally reported hearing racist comments at school, she has heard accounts from friends who have, Howard said. “That someone who should be a role model for them is doing this,” she continued, referring to the alleged racist remarks, “is kind of sad.” And it’s certainly “not anything that should be taken lightly,” Howard said. Beeson, who grew up in Lawrence and graduated from the public schools she now oversees, agrees with her on that. District officials, upon announcing the investigation on Oct. 19, released a statement that stressed Superintendent Kyle Hayden’s “deep concern” about the allegations. Yet, very little information — including whether or not the district found any evidence that racist remarks had actually been made during class at South — has been provided to the public as of yet. In the past, the district has routinely named individuals who have resigned or had their employment terminated. When asked why the district has yet to release the name of the latest employee to resign, Cunningham declined to comment. It’s standard procedure for school board members to vote for the approval of employee resignations, Cunningham and Beeson said, though Cunningham later added that he was not aware of any policy that mandated this practice. Beeson said Tuesday that she understands the frustrations of the families that voiced their concerns about the lack of

L awrence J ournal -W orld transparency surrounding these personnel matters. Beeson understands, she said, because members of the school board are experiencing “similar frustrations” in the face of “trying to do what’s best for our students and teachers.” “It is a difficult balance to make sure that everybody feels protected, and we have a lot of work to do. And we have to keep plugging away and solving these issues,” she said. “One of the things that’s come to light with this recent situation is that we have families of color that don’t feel safe in our school buildings, and we need to work on that.” Other issues raised at school board meetings since the South allegations became public in October include calls for expanded paraeducator training, Beeson noted, as well as concerns that staff-led equity teams aren’t receiving enough support at the building level. All are valid — and should be listened to, Beeson said. “Having a light shone on some of these issues that we have not been paying close enough attention to is a good thing. As a board and as a district, we’re committed to working on those things,” she said, and “… We want people to keep talking to us.” Marcel Harmon, the school board’s president, declined to offer details when approached directly after Monday’s meeting. Calls to several school board members — among them Jill Fincher, Vanessa Sanburn and Rick Ingram — were not immediately returned Tuesday. Shannon Kimball, the school board’s vice president, chose not to comment on the matter when called Tuesday by the Journal-World. — K-12 education reporter Joanna Hlavacek can be reached at 832-6388.

failure of a bypass pump directly up the line from the pump located at 31st and Louisiana streets. She said the utilities department is currently taking samples from both Naismith Creek and the Wakarusa River. Gilliland said the city will rescind the advisory once water samples show no health risk. “We’re continuing to monitor levels, and once our tests come back to safe levels, we will remove any signage and we will rescind the health advisory,” Gilliland said.


City officials said sewage overflowed the manhole for approximately 12 hours, causing approximately 1.9 million gallons of raw untreated sewage to flood nearby Naismith Creek. The health and stream advisory is being issued for the creek area “in and around” 31st and Louisiana streets, according to a press release. The sewage overflow could result in “elevated bacteria and contaminants” in the creek, which is bordered

by a city bike and walking trail. Residents are advised not to enter the stream or allow children or pets to enter the stream. City spokeswoman Megan Gilliland said the city has reported the overflow to the Kansas Department of Health and Environment, and is currently monitoring the condition of the water. Gilliland said she didn’t yet know if the sewage could affect nearby plant and wildlife, or if the city would be responsible for any cleanup, but that the city would be working with KDHE. “As our regularity agency, we absolutely work with them, and notified them immediately of

the issue,” Gilliland said. “And we’re working with our partners there.” The city was not aware of the pump failure and subsequent overflow until the morning after it occurred. Jeanette Klamm, utilities department management analyst, said the overflow was reported around 7:40 a.m. Tuesday, and that they were able to stop the flow of sewage about an hour after it was reported. Naismith Creek runs adjacent to the Baker Wetlands before eventually flowing into the Wakarusa River, but Klamm said the creek doesn’t drain into the wetlands. The overflow does not

Gilliland said signs have been posted along the city’s walking and biking path that borders the creek to let residents know it is not safe for people or pets to enter the water. She said the sewage is already being diluted. “There is water running right now, so it’s not just sitting there and pooling,” Gilliland said. “It’s being diluted by natural water running through the environment and then dilution downstream into the Wakarusa.” Klamm said the sewage overflow was due to the

Man apprehended in chase accused of probation violations, kidnapping By Conrad Swanson

A Lawrence man accused of kidnapping and arrested Monday after an hourlong search involving dozens of heavily armed police officers has a criminal history and was most recently wanted on susEdwards picion of skipping scheduled meetings with a parole officer and testing positive for drugs.

Anthony Deshaune Edwards, 22, was booked into the Douglas County Jail Monday evening on suspicion of two counts of violating his probation, one count of attempting to elude a law enforcement officer and one count of kidnapping. Edwards has a criminal history in Douglas County, though as of Tuesday morning no new charges have been filed against him. Just before 3 p.m. Monday officers noticed Edwards driving a gold Toyota SUV “erratically” in a parking lot in the 3200 block of Iowa Street, Lawrence Police Sgt. Amy

Rhoads said in a written statement. Edwards was known to have warrants out for his arrest. The allegations of probation violations stem from two separate criminal convictions, according to Douglas County District Court records. In December 2015, Edwards pleaded guilty to two felony counts of forgery and one misdemeanor count of theft, records say. In May 2015, Edwards pleaded guilty to one felony count of unlawful voluntary sexual relations with a child over the age of 14 but under the age of 16. For his convictions

Edwards was sentenced to serve time in prison, to be followed by probation, court documents say. In September 2016, Edwards’ probation officer filed an affidavit accusing him of skipping scheduled appointments and testing positive for methamphetamine. A warrant was issued for his arrest in October. On Monday, shortly after officers saw Edwards driving near Iowa Street, Rhoads said another officer saw the same SUV with a female in the passenger seat driving past the intersection of 31st Street and Haskell Avenue. “The female looked

directly at the officer, who was stationary, and with her hands up to the window it appeared the female was yelling for help,” Rhoads said. The officer tried to pull Edwards over; however, he sped away, Rhoads said. He then entered the campus of Haskell Indian Nations University and ran west on foot. Police reached the female inside the car, who was not injured. After the chase, dozens of officers from area law enforcement agencies blocked off an area around the intersection of West 25th and Louisiana streets, west to Belle Haven Drive and south

past Utah Court. Many of the officers were armed with rifles and at least one police dog was brought to the scene. After 4 p.m. officers arrested Edwards in an apartment at 609 W. 25th St., Rhoads said. That address is also listed as Edwards’ home address in the Douglas County Jail booking logs. Nobody was injured during Edwards’ arrest, Rhoads said. Edwards is currently being held in the Douglas County Jail without bond. — Public safety reporter Conrad Swanson can be reached at 832-7284.

Mother, 9-month-old hospitalized KU named bike-friendly campus after Monday crash along K-10


By Conrad Swanson

A mother and her 9-month-old daughter were sent to the hospital Monday morning after their Mazda SUV was rear-ended by another vehicle along the South Lawrence Trafficway, state troopers said. Around 9:40 a.m., a Toyota 4Runner, eastbound on Kansas Highway 10 rearended the woman’s Mazda CX5 near the highway’s intersection with West 27th Street, according to a Kansas Highway Patrol crash report. The Mazda had slowed to stop at the intersection’s traffic light. After the initial crash the Mazda was forced forward, hitting an eastbound Pontiac G6, which had also stopped at the light, the report says. In addition to hitting the Mazda, the Toyota entered the westbound lane

Missouri man accused of having sex within view of 15-year-old By Conrad Swanson


An Excelsior Springs, Mo., man is accused of having sex within view of a minor. Evan Wesley Kilgore, 25, surrendered himself to the Douglas County Jail on Thursday. He fac-

es a single felony charge of lewd and lascivious behavior. In May 2015, Kilgore had sex “with knowledge or reasonable anticipation” that the activity was within view of a 15-yearold person, according to a criminal complaint filed with the Douglas County

District Court. Apart from the minor who reportedly witnessed the sex, the act was legal, the complaint says. The criminal complaint was filed against Kilgore in July, and in August he was served with a summons, according to Douglas County District Court

Questions remain after anti-Trump message on park mural is removed By Rochelle Valverde

City officials and the artist both say they don’t know who is responsible for changes recently made to a mural in Lawrence’s Hobbs Park. One section of the multipaneled mural depicts people with picket signs, and following the presidential election one of the signs was altered to read “Stop Trump.” Originally, the sign said “Save the Tree.” Last week, the anti-Trump message on the sign was repainted back to the original one, though the Trump message is still partially visible. Lawrence Arts and Culture director Porter Arneill said the city does not know who was responsible for either of the alterations. Arneill said the city was not involved with the restoration of the original message.


usually park. If you don’t get the memo, you may find yourself hitching a ride to the tow yard, or at least paying a parking ticket. In fairness, KU Parking and Transit has been notifying permit-holders of upcoming lot restrictions via its official KU email addresses and on Twitter, but director Donna Hultine said those often get glossed over. “It’s just really hard to get them to pay attention to, you know, another email from KU,” she said. Enter KU Parking’s text alert system. The service, new this semester, sends text alerts to whichever parking permit holders will be affected by an upcoming closure. For example, those with permits to park in the yellow-zone lot east of the stadium got reminders telling them to make way for Brad Paisley, who performed in the lot Oct. 14. More than 300 people had signed up to receive texts at that time, and it seemed to help, Hultine said. “There may have

“I was monitoring it because I wanted to ensure that all copyright was honored, but it occurred on its own,” Arneill said. Arneill said that typically in the case of public art, the owning entity — in this instance the City of Lawrence — owns the artwork while the artist maintains copyright. Arneill said he informed the mural’s lead artist, Dave Loewenstein, of the original alteration. A police report was also filed when the antiTrump message was added, but Parks and Recreation Department interim director Ernie Shaw said there has been no update in that regard. The lead artist also said he didn’t have additional information. Loewenstein said he was aware of the changes, but did not know who made either of the alternations to the mural. “I was actually out of been two cars in the lot, and that was fantastic.” Anyone with a KU Parking account can sign up to receive the text alerts through the parking page in the myKU portal, Hultine said.

he University of Kansas women’s volleyball team is to be commended on a superlative season. On Saturday, the Jayhawks defeated Baylor and claimed their first ever outright Big 12 title. The Big 12 championship earned the Jayhawks an automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament. Kansas will host the first round, playing Samford at 6:30 p.m. Thursday in the Horejsi Athletic Center. This week it was announced that the team swept Big 12 honors. Junior Kelsie Payne became the first Kansas player to be named the Big 12 Player of the Year. Junior Ainise Havili was named the conference’s Setter of the Year for the second year in a row. Senior Cassie Wait was named Libero of the Year. And Ray Bechard was named coach of the year for the second year in a row. Payne, Havili, Wait and junior Madison Rigdon were named first team All Big 12, while senior Taylor Soucie earned second team honors. The Jayhawks finished the regular season ranked fifth in the nation with a record of 26-2. Kansas’ only losses were at Purdue on Sept. 16 and at fourth-ranked Texas on Sept. 24. Since the loss in Austin, the Jayhawks have gone more than two months without losing a match, a streak of 14 straight wins. Included in the streak was an epic five-set win over Texas on Oct. 29, the first time in 25 matches the Jayhawks have beaten the Longhorns. Bechard has taken the Jayhawks to heights on par with the men’s basketball team. The volleyball team is making its fifth straight appearance in the NCAA Tournament. Last year’s team went 30-3 and earned a trip to the Final 4 before succumbing to eventual national champion Nebraska. In fact, the only matches the Jayhawks lost in 2015 were to Texas and Nebraska, the teams that played for the national title. Fans of the program certainly have taken notice. Every match in the 1,300seat Horejsi Family Athletics Center was sold out this season. And every ticket has been sold for the first and second round matches Thursday and Friday at Horejsi. If Kansas beats Samford Thursday, on Friday the Jayhawks will meet the winner of Thursday’s other first-round match in Lawrence between Northern Iowa and Creighton. Here’s wishing Jayhawks a deep run in the NCAA Tournament, but no matter what happens, 2016 has already been a year for volleyball fans to remember.

A world where the truth is losing Washington — Richard Stengel, the State Department’s undersecretary for public diplomacy, bluntly states the problem that has been worrying him, and should worry us all: “In a global information war, how does the truth win?” The very idea that the truth won’t be triumphant would, until recently, have been heresy to Stengel, a former managing editor of Time magazine. But in the nearly three years since he joined the State Department, Stengel has seen the rise of what he calls a “post-truth” world, where the facts are sometimes overwhelmed by propaganda from Russia and the Islamic State. “We like to think that truth has to battle itself out in the marketplace of ideas. Well, it may be losing in that marketplace today,” Stengel warned in an interview. “Simply having fact-based messaging is not sufficient to win the information war.” Stengel poses an urgent question for journalists, technologists and, more broadly, for everyone living in free societies or aspiring to do so. How do we protect the essential resource of democracy — the truth — from the toxin of lies that surrounds it? It’s like a virus or food poison. It needs to be controlled. But how? Stengel argues that the U.S. government should sometimes protect citizens by exposing “weaponized information, false information” that is polluting the ecosystem. But ultimately, the defense of truth must

Now, says Stengel, social media gives everyone the opportunity to construct their own narrative of reality.” be independent of a government that many people mistrust. “There are inherent dangers in having the government be the verifier of last resort,” he argues. Our conversation took place in Stengel’s office, the same room that was used by Secretary of State George C. Marshall, a paradigmatic figure in the American age of reason. As Stengel observed, the problems of today’s information-saturated society would have been unimaginable for Marshall, who lived at a time when information was scarce and precious, and openness brought change. Now, says Stengel, social media gives everyone the opportunity to construct their own narrative of reality. He recalls the early days of the Islamic State in 2014, when extremists used brutal imagery to terrorize people and recruit followers. The State Department’s

early counter-radicalization efforts mistakenly were “tit for tat,” arguing with jihadists’ interpretation of Islam. A better strategy, U.S. officials learned, was to empower others who could make the case more effectively. “The central insight was that we’re not the best messenger for our message,” Stengel explains, “because in the post-truth world, the people we’re trying to reach automatically question anything from the U.S. government.” As the Islamic State has weakened, so, too, has its media campaign. Messages have dwindled; recruits have disappeared; the “brand” has been devalued. Russia’s propaganda campaigns since the 2014 invasion of the Crimea have been much subtler and harder to combat. That’s partly because Moscow’s goal isn’t to confront the West head-on, but to spread doubt and mistrust within. Stengel quotes Peter Pomerantsev, the author of “Nothing is True and Everything is Possible: The Surreal Heart of the New Russia.” For a Russian leadership schooled on KGB tactics, Pomerantsev argues, “It’s not an information war. It’s a war on information.” Stengel dissects the pastiche of fact and fantasy on Russian media outlets such as “Russia Today” and “Sputnik” this way: “They’re not trying to say that their version of events is the true one. They’re saying: ‘Everybody’s lying! Nobody’s telling you the truth!’” Russia’s hacking during

the U.S. presidential election had this aim of polluting the public information stream. “They don’t have a candidate, per se. But they want to undermine faith in democracy, faith in the West.” In the cyber-propagandists’ atomized, construct-yourown-narrative world, agreement on a common framework of factual evidence can become almost impossible. How should citizens who want a fact-based world combat this assault on truth? Stengel has approved State Department programs that teach investigative reporting and empower truth-tellers, but he’s right that this isn’t really a job for Uncle Sam. The best hope may be the global companies that have created the social-media platforms. “They see this information war as an existential threat,” says Stengel. The tech companies have made a start: He says Twitter has removed more than 400,000 accounts, and YouTube daily deletes extremist videos. The real challenge for global tech giants is to restore the currency of truth. Perhaps “machine learning” can identify falsehoods and expose every argument that uses them. Perhaps someday, a human-machine process will create what Stengel describes as a “global ombudsman for information.” But right now, the truth is losing. And we wonder: Which side will America’s next president take in the war on information?


OLD HOME TOWN From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for Nov. 30, 1916: years l “A perfect day – and at ago its end a football victory either IN 1916 for the crimson and blue of the Jayhawker or the gold and black of the Missouri Tiger. That is Thanksgiving day in Lawrence, and that is what turned the faces of thousands of Kansans and Missourians toward Lawrence this morning. Using the power of steam, electricity and gasoline they came. Special trains were arranged on all the steam roads, the interurban put on special service, and the dirt roads, in the best condition of the year, bore hundreds of motor cars from near and distant points.”



Hiratsuka thanks To the editor: Please allow me to share this letter from the mayor of Hiratsuka, Japan, and a few comments of my own about our sister city. Dear Mr. Schumm, I would like to express my gratitude for your warm welcome and kindness during my stay in Lawrence. This was my third time visiting Lawrence. Once again, we were impressed by your beautiful city and the richness of your culture and arts. One hundred and twenty people from Lawrence gathered at the reception at the Circle S Ranch for our delegation, which was only nine people from Hiratsuka. I was deeply moved by that, and then I realized once again the bond of friendship and trust that has been our treasure. I hope that programs like our youth exchange program have deepened our relationship and encouraged increased mutual understanding and respect. I would like to thank all those who were involved in this program, members of the sister city advisory board, friends of Hiratsuka, the city of Lawrence and the University of Kansas. It is my hope that we can meet again soon in the future. Thank you again. Yours sincerely, Katsuhiro Ochiai, Mayor of Hiratsuka

This partnership has been in place for 25 years, allowing for an annual student exchange, which has resulted in more than 400 Lawrence students having the opportunity, at a very young age, to experience for themselves a culture different from their own. Students from Hiratsuka then return the gesture with a visit to Lawrence each year to complete this friendship pact. Your Sister City Advisory Board supports activities between Lawrence and Hiratsuka, Japan, Eutin, Germany, and Iniades, Greece. Bob Schumm, chairman of the Sister City Advisory Board

Electoral purpose

To the editor: The Electoral College? I had to dig a little, but it’s not hard to find. Article II, Section 1: Each state chooses Electors who meet and vote. Do we still trust the wisdom of the founding fathers? Or should we pick and choose, accepting some parts, ignoring others? There is really only one reason for an Electoral College; it is a buffer against democracy gone wrong. The founders did not trust pure democracy. They worried that passions might lead us onto dangerous paths. The Electoral College was designed to be a safety check, a curb, and just like the Supreme Court, it is anti-democratic, it can disagree with and negate the democratic outcome. Its purpose is to The above letter demonstrates the curb unbridled democratic passions. In 2000 the College obeyed the very warm relationship that we have with our sister city Hiratsuka, Japan. states and elected a president though

he received fewer votes from the people; but it was not required to do so. Nor is it required to elect the 2016 winner. The Electoral College has the power to reject a president who is dangerous. Ironically, in doing so the College would actually be enforcing the will of the people. In the past the College has always obeyed the decisions of individual states, but it need not do so now; it can choose to follow the will of the majority. If it fails to do so now, under these circumstances, its existence will be hard to justify. In these circumstances, if the College fails to act, by trusting in its design, perhaps the founders were mistaken. William Skepnek, Lawrence

Jeff Glik and other family members travel to each ribbon-cutting for a new store. The family flew into Kansas City and started its drive to Hays, but first stopped in Lawrence. By the time they left Lawrence later that day, they had a deal to locate in the former Sweet space. “We fell in love with your town,” Jeff Glik said. “I mean, triple somersaults over that town. We struck a deal in 30 minutes.” Glik said downtown Lawrence is the type

Top brands include Silver Jeans, The North Face, Yeti, Simply Southern, Flying Monkey Jeans, Alex and Ani, and others.

of shopping district the store loves to be in. “Probably the most exciting thing about Lawrence is we like to be in a unique shopping environment,” Glik said. “If Massachusetts Street isn’t one of the most unique shopping environments in North America, I don’t know what is.” Glik said the company will do some renovation work to the interior of the approximately 2,800 square-foot store. He said he hopes the Lawrence store will open in the spring of 2017. He said the store likely will employ about a dozen people. — This is an excerpt from Chad Lawhorn’s Town Talk column, which appears on

Trump trade talk sparks anxiety

John Legend reflects on fatherhood, new album





Donald Trump’s tweetstorm charging, without evidence, that the election included “millions” of illegal voters is just the latest reminder of how distinctive his emerging presidency promises to be. Three weeks after he surprised even his supporters by winning the White House, the president-elect has begun to provide important clues about how he’ll govern. Through words, actions and appointments — by what he’s done so far, and what he has delayed doing — the nation’s 45th president has cut a course that is a mix of the predictable and the unprecedented.

Just like his campaign. There’s no template for Trump in office because Trump has never held office before, the first president in American history to have neither military command nor governmental experience. He moves into the Oval Office having had little backing from the political establishment that typically is tapped to form a new government. And he doesn’t feel bound to follow his predecessors’ practices, even down to his plans to v STORY CONTINUES ON 2B

Adam Tamburin The (Nashville) Tennessean KNOXVILLE , TENN. Flames tore through the Great Smoky Mountains on Monday night and into Tuesday, killing at least three people, scorching hundreds of homes and businesses and sending more than 14,000 fleeing from the resort towns of Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. Tourists and residents scrambled to outrun the blaze, which was pushed from the Great Smoky Mountains National Park into the towns by wind gusts of almost 90 mph. Drivers navigating narrow mountain roads shot video footage showing flames swooping in from the shoulders of the road-

But emergency responders seemed blindsided by the intensity of the wind-whipped flames Monday night. A Gatlinburg fire official said more than 20 fire calls came within 15 minutes at the peak of the chaos. As day broke Tuesday, the extent of the damage came into grim focus. Buildings were reduced to charred shells, and many beloved tourist destinations reported heavy damage or destruction. The devastation grabbed the attention of millions

Trump unlikely to sway Supreme Court on flag burning Act already entrenched as freedom of speech Richard Wolf @richardjwolf USA TODAY

WASHINGTON Donald Trump will need to replace far more than one justice on the Supreme Court if he’s serious about making flag burning a criminal offense. While Congress has been amenable to the idea — with the Senate falling a single vote short of starting the constitutional amendment process a decade ago

— the high court has been a bulwark in defense of the First Amendment. Trump tweeted Tuesday morning that “Nobody should be allowed to burn the American flag — if they do, there must be consequences — perhaps loss of citizenship or year in jail!” As he did, the court’s eight justices were preparing to issue the 2016 term’s first decision. The late Justice Antonin Scalia, who Trump will get to replace next year, sided with liberal justices in 1989 and 1990 in holding that the Constitution protects flag burning. The first case dealt with a Texas protester; the sec-

ond struck down a law passed by Congress. Both cases were approved 5-4. Scalia cited his vote on numerous occasions over the year as evidence that he did not always decide cases based on his personal views. “If it were up to me, I would put in jail every sandalwearing, scruffy-bearded weirdo who burns the American flag,” he said. “But I am not king.” Most of the people on Trump’s list of 21 potential high court nominees would agree with Scalia, says Jeffrey Rosen, president of the nonpartisan National Constitution Center. The flag-burning decisions, he says, are

“entrenched as part of our First Amendment tradition.” What’s more, only Justice Samuel Alito among current justices has been willing to restrict free speech considered by many to be abhorrent, such as protests at a Marine veteran’s funeral and videos that depict the mutilating animals. By contrast, Chief Justice John Roberts wrote the 8-1 decisions upholding those forms of speech in 2010 and 2011. And he cited the court’s past protection of flag burning in controversial 5-4 rulings that upheld the right to spend freely on political campaigns.

divide his time between Washington and his hometown of New York. That makes the search for clues of what’s ahead even more intense than usual. Here are three lessons we’ve learned already:


How will Trump communicate with Americans? Let’s look at what he’s done since he was declared the president-elect through Tuesday morning. News conferences: zero. Tweets and retweets: 77 and counting. Trump hasn’t had a news conference since the election. Indeed, he hasn’t held a news conference since July, when he moved from being one of the most accessible presidential candidates in memory to one of the least. At that point, he began to rely mostly on speaking to a handful of preferred news outlets and, notably, social media. Trump has more than 16 million followers on his @realDonaldTrump Twitter account and more than 15 million on his verified Facebook page. What’s more, the @POTUS Twitter account (the acronym for president of the United States) that he’ll inherit from President Obama has more than 12 million followers. That gives Trump a personal circulation on social media bigger than any American newspaper or TV evening news broadcast. It’s a way for him to communicate with his supporters and spark stories in news outlets around the world without being subjected to the follow-up questions reporters presumably would pose. Since the election, he has posted messages along traditional presidential lines, from wishing the Marine Corps a happy 241st birthday (“Thank you for your service!!”) to sending Thanksgiving wishes to the nation. But he also has blasted “the failing @nytimes,” castigated the cast of Broadway’s Hamilton for reading a message from stage to Vice President-elect Mike Pence, and suggested Saturday Night Live owed him “equal time” in response to its satiric portrayals of him. Over the weekend, he bashed

moves by Green Party nominee Jill Stein to seek recounts in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania, states Trump narrowly carried. He said without substantiation that fraud had given rival Hillary Clinton a lead in the popular vote of more than 2 million. “In addition to winning the Electoral College in a landslide, I won the popular vote if you deduct the millions of people who voted illegally,” he wrote. Monday night, he retweeted five posts denouncing a CNN report that questioned his evidence for that claim.


Loyalty matters to Trump, but there seem to be limits. Two top campaign aides quickly landed ranking White House jobs, Reince Priebus as chief of staff and Steve Bannon as senior counselor. Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions, the first senator to endorse Trump, was named attorney general. Retired Army lieutenant general Michael Flynn, a close adviser during the campaign, will be national security adviser. But New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who enthusiastically endorsed Trump but remains embroiled in the Bridgegate scandal on his home turf, is on the outs, bumped from his role as head of the transition. Former New York

City mayor Rudy Giuliani, who continued to publicly defend Trump even in the immediate wake of the vulgar Access Hollywood video, hasn’t won the job he wants, secretary of State, at least not yet. Which brings us to forgiveness, and its limits. A rival candidate for the nation’s top diplomatic post, and to be fourth in line for the presidency, is Mitt Romney. During the campaign, the GOP’s 2012 presidential nominee was Trump’s most scathing critic from the ranks of senior Republicans. In a speech in March, Romney called Trump “a phony, a fraud,” “very, very not smart” and a failed businessman who advocated “ridiculous and dangerous” ideas. Still, Romney was scheduled to meet with Trump for a second time Tuesday to talk about the State Department job, an idea

The bank accounts of Trump’s Cabinet appointees seem likely to overwhelm any previous administration. that heartens establishment Republicans but enrages some of those who had supported Trump at the time Romney was denouncing him. “People feel betrayed to think that Gov. Romney, who went out of his way to question the character and the intellect and the integrity of Donald Trump, now our president-elect, would be given the most significant Cabinet post of all, secretary of State,” Kellyanne Conway, Trump’s former campaign manager, said Sunday on NBC’s Meet the Press. The battle between Romney and Giuliani could clear the way for some other prospect, such as


President-elect Donald Trump announces Nov. 19 that Betsy DeVos, a fellow billionaire who did not endorse him in the primaries, will take the role of Education secretary.

Senate Foreign Relations Chairman Bob Corker of Tennessee. Trump appointed South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley as United Nations ambassador and Betsy DeVos as Education secretary. Both endorsed others during the Republican primaries, and Haley was particularly critical of Trump. She labeled him “everything a governor doesn’t want in a president.” Unlike Romney, though, she did say she was voting for him in the general election.


Rich folks often fare well in the bid for presidential appointments. Major campaign contributors routinely are nominated to serve as ambassadors to idyllic locals — think Paris, not Kabul — and to head agencies such as the Commerce Department. In 1953, Dwight Eisenhower’s Cabinet, heavy with corporate executives, was dubbed “nine millionaires and a plumber.” (Trivia alert: Who was the plumber? Labor Secretary Martin Durkin, a former president of the plumbers and pipefitters union. He lasted only eight months in the job.) But the bank accounts of Trump’s Cabinet appointees seem likely to overwhelm any previous administration. DeVos’ family is heir to the huge Amway fortune. Trump was expected to announce Wilbur Ross, the billionaire businessman known as the “king of bankruptcy,” to head Commerce. Steve Mnuchin, formerly of Goldman Sachs, reportedly had been picked for Treasury secretary over another billionaire, Jonathan Gray of the Blackstone private equity firm, reported to have been a finalist. By the way, if they take the government jobs, they will be subject to a federal law that says executive-branch employees can’t participate in government matters in which they or their immediate families have a financial interest. That could force them to divest some assets or put them in a blind trust. That ethics law doesn’t apply to the president and his extensive business assets. Trump also seems partial to generals. Besides naming Flynn, Trump has tweeted his regard for retired Marine Corps general James (“Mad Dog”) Mattis as a prospective secretary of Defense. Mattis’ appointment would require a congressional waiver from the requirement that the Pentagon chief be out of uniform for at least seven years. “Very impressive,” Trump tweeted. “A true General’s General!” And he met for about an hour Monday at Trump Tower with retired general David Petraeus, who had to resign as CIA director for mishandling classified information. He’s another possible secretary of State. “Just met with General Petraeus,” Trump tweeted Monday afternoon. “Was very impressed!”

Officer’s ‘mind was like spaghetti’ Hearing on Walter Scott’s fatal shooting has court spellbound John Bacon @jmbacon USA TODAY

An emotional former North Charleston police officer told a mesmerized South Carolina courtroom Tuesday he feared for his life when he fatally shot an unarmed black man at a traffic stop last year, a tragedy that reignited Black Lives Matter protests across the nation. The officer, Michael Slager, who is white, testified he pursued Walter Scott on foot after Scott fled the traffic stop. Slager said they scuffled and that Scott wrested away Slager’s Taser. Slager said Scott was charging at him when he pulled his gun and fired. “I saw that Taser coming at me. I knew I was in trouble,” a teary Slager said. “I knew I would be overpowered.” Video from the scene shows the Taser on the ground when Slager begins shooting. But Slager, who is charged with murder, said he did not see it that way the day of the tragedy. “My mind was like spaghetti,” Slager testified. The fatal confrontation began when Slager pulled over Scott’s 1991 Mercedes for a broken tail light. A bystander’s cellphone video, which went viral after the encounter, begins seconds before Slager starts shooting and shows Scott fleeing from Slager, who fires eight shots. Scott, 50, was hit three times in the back, once in the buttocks and once on the ear. Prosecutor Bruce DuRant pressed Slager on his state of mind, suggesting Slager was angry and not afraid when he shot Scott. Defense lawyer Andy Savage tried to dismiss DuRant’s line of questioning, asking Slager if he was in a good mood on April 4, 2015, the day of the shooting. Slager, 35, said he was upbeat beforehand because the next day was Easter Sunday and he was scheduled to have three days off. “After April 4th it’s been a roller coaster,” he said. “I’ve been destroyed by this. The Scott family has been destroyed by this. It’s horrible.” Slager was fired from the force and charged with murder. If convicted, he could face life in prison. Slager, who has been free since January on $500,000 bond, said some of his jail time was spent in a cell next to Dylann Roof. Roof is accused of a shooting rampage in June 2015 that killed nine African American worshipers at a historically black Charleston church.

of people across the globe who have memories of vacations spent in the mountains of the country’s most visited national park. The center of Gatlinburg’s tourist district escaped heavy damage, but “it’s the apocalypse” on either side, said Newmansville Volunteer Fire Department Lt. Bobby Balding. Although rooms at the Dollywood theme park and resort were evacuated as a precaution, Dolly Parton said Tuesday that the area had been spared. At shelters, hundreds of survivors wondered how much they had lost. Shari Deason and her boyfriend scooped up their 14month-old son, William, when the evacuation order came, but they left everything else behind at the Bedrock Motel — even William’s diapers. “I don’t know if we’ve got a room to go back to,” Deason said. “I don’t know if we’ve got anything to go back to.” The unprecedented fire began when embers from a wildfire on nearby Chimney Tops Trail in the national park blew into Gatlinburg about 6 p.m. as the heavy winds doubled in speed, according to Gatlinburg Fire Chief Greg Miller. Although arson suspects had been arrested in connection with separate fires this fall, it was not immediately clear what sparked

this fire. Cassius Cash, the park’s superintendent, said the Chimney Tops fire burned about 50 acres on Sunday. By Monday, 15,000 acres were engulfed. “In my 25 years of federal (park) service, I’ve participated in

many fires, but none of that could have prepared me for this,” Cash said. Emergency workers struggled to douse the flames throughout the day Tuesday, spurring help from across the state. More than 200 firefighters poured into the

area from as far west as Memphis, and the Tennessee National Guard used a helicopter to dump water on the flames. The Gatlinburg fire chief said on Tuesday that “the worst is over,” but smoke was still twisting into the sky in the late afternoon. About 12 people were treated for fire-related injuries, a Gatlinburg official said. Three people with severe burns were taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville for treatment, according to the Tennessee Emergency Management Agency. A Vanderbilt official said those patients were in critical but stable condition Tuesday afternoon. As residents filtered back in the area to take stock of the damage, they came to grips with the impact on the community — the traditionally vibrant fall colors are now a charred brown-andblack landscape. “Many people come from all around the world just to enjoy the beauty of this park and enjoy the beauty of this city,” said Bryan Aleman, who works at a bank in Gatlinburg and lives in Pigeon Forge. “Everybody’s gonna suffer from it. This is what Gatlinburg is: a tourist destination for the entire nation.” Contributing: USA TODAY Network Tennessee reporters Matt Lakin, Dave Boucher, Amy J.

Q: Why are stock futures often wrong? Matt Krantz USA TODAY

A: Investors braced for an ugly day after the presidential election. The stock futures market, where traders bet on the stock market’s open, pointed down nearly 800 points for the Dow Jones industrials. But just the opposite happened when trading kicked off: the Dow Jones industrial average rallied. Some investors wonder why the futures market, which is supposed to be predictive of the stock market, was wrong with

such an important data point. The fact is, the futures market wasn’t wrong but reflected the emotional roller coaster of the surprise. The unexpected win by Donald Trump stunned investors with uncertainty. The futures market was reacting based on trading in the EMini S&P, a trading contract on the Chicago Mercantile Exchange, which allows traders to bet on the market’s open. It’s not intended to be a long-term prediction tool. The E-Mini S&P can be traded overnight by traders so it’s highly volatile. When regular trading opened the next day, all market participants, including patient investors such as mutual fund managers, were able to react and price stocks more for the long term.

Kellogg to stop running ads on far-right site Breitbart Roger Yu


Kellogg, the food manufacturer that owns Pringles and Pop-Tarts, confirmed Tuesday that it will discontinue advertising on Breit, the far-right news and commentary site that was formerly run by a top aide of President-elect Donald Trump, Steve Bannon. The site has come under fire on social media in recent days as consumers, angered at what they

say is its racist, sexist and antiSemitic content, publicly name its advertisers. Bannon worked as executive chairman of Breitbart News until he left to run Trump’s campaign. He was scheduled to return to Breitbart, but earlier this month, Trump named Bannon his chief strategist, stirring more of the site’s critics to call out its content and appeal to its advertisers. “We regularly work with our media-buying partners to ensure our ads do not appear on sites that aren’t aligned with our values as a company,” Kellogg


Kellogg says it regularly reassesses websites to make sure they “(align) with our values.”

spokesperson Kris Charles said in a statement. “This involves reviewing websites where ads could potentially be placed using filtering technology to assess site content. As you can imagine, there is a very large volume of websites, so occasionally something is inadvertently missed. In this case, we learned from consumers that ads were placed on and decided to discontinue advertising there.” Breitbart News couldn’t be reached for comment. But in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Bannon has claimed that

he was not a White nationalist, as many liberals assert. “I’m not a white nationalist, I’m a nationalist. I’m an economic nationalist,” Bannon said. Other companies have already said on Twitter that they will stop advertising on Breitbart. They include pharmaceutical manufacturer Novo Nordisk, eyeglasses maker Warby Parker and the San Diego Zoo. AppNexus, one of the largest online advertising networks, also blocked Breitbart News. Contributing: The Associated Press

‘Darkness’ hits home, but it also looks ‘to find light’ Patrick Ryan USA TODAY

It has been a year since John Legend wrote most of his forthcoming fifth album, Darkness and Light. But the Grammy-winning singer/songwriter (and impassioned Hillary Clinton supporter) says its themes have struck a new chord with him in the weeks after the presidential election. “It feels more relevant than it would have otherwise, because the album talks about an uncertain world that can be dark and troublesome at times, and trying to find light through that,” says Legend, 37. “I guess the world got a little darker, in my mind, after the election.” Darkness (out Friday) is also his most personal record, he adds — and that’s coming from the man who spun a tender ballad for his wife, model Chrissy Teigen, into a No. 1 hit on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart (All of Me, off 2013 album Love in the Future). Working with Alabama Shakes producer Blake Mills — and inspired by Stevie Wonder, Curtis Mayfield and Marvin Gaye — “I wanted it to be an honest reflection of who I am as a person, and what I’m thinking about when it comes to my personal life and what’s going on in the world,” Legend says. The Miguel collaboration Overload muses on Legend and Teigen’s relationship in the spotlight and how they deal with online critics. (The lyric “let that blue bird sing” shrugs off Twitter trolls.) The deceptively sexy Penthouse Floor, featuring Chance the Rapper, is the album’s most socially conscious track, as the duo takes stock of class and fame over an elastic funk groove. “The song is talking about that idea of ascension and going to rarefied air, but also not forgetting what the conditions are in


Darkness, out Friday, “talks about an uncertain world that can be dark and troublesome,” says John Legend, photographed at the American Music Awards Nov. 20 in Los Angeles.


Legend and his wife, Chrissy Teigen, get close at the God’s Love We Deliver Golden Heart Awards Oct. 17 in New York City. the community that you’ve come from,” Legend says. “Chance’s verse puts an interesting twist on it, because it (asks), ‘Are you even sure you want to be here?’ You still feel like an outsider; you’re

not treated the same way as the people who are born into (wealth).” Then there’s Right By You, a heart-tugging rumination on his 7-month-old daughter, Luna, who

also appears in the music video for single Love Me Now. Written while Teigen was pregnant, the song is “mostly questions: wondering what our daughter’s going to be like, how we’ll be as parents, what kind of world she’ll grow up in and how she’ll influence that world,” Legend says. “It’s not (written) out of anxiety; it’s more curiosity and hope.” Outside music, Legend is a producer on WGN America’s slavery drama Underground and has a small role in Damien Chazelle’s musical Oscar contender La La Land (out Dec. 9). He says fatherhood has made him more mindful of his schedule and what projects he takes on, because “you just want to be there as much as you can.” More personally, being a parent is “a beautiful thing,” he says. “There’s something special about that feeling, knowing that you two as a couple have created something that will always be a reflection of your love and union.”

Portman amazes in tragic, intimate ‘Jackie’ Character study follows first lady after assassination Amid the infamy and tragedy of having a famous husband, Jacqueline Kennedy gives her most revealing confession MOVIE in Jackie to a priest: REVIEW “I never wanted BRIAN fame. I just became a TRUITT Kennedy.” The iconic first lady is given emotional complexity and rich understanding through a stirring and ambitious performance by Natalie Portman in director Pablo Larrain’s powerful drama (eeeg out of four; rated R; in theaters Friday in New York and Los Angeles, expanding nationwide through January). It’s less a biopic than an experimental character study looking at Jackie’s private life in the traumatic days after her husband’s assassination. Journalist Theodore White (Billy Crudup) reports to Jackie’s Hyannis Port estate a week after JFK is killed for the interview in which she famously links the Kennedy presidency to Arthurian legend and the “one brief shining moment that was known as Camelot.” But Jackie is no weak widow: She makes it clear she

The film shadows Jackie through the 1962 White House TV special she films “to impart a sense of America’s greatness,” the fateful day in Dallas when she tries to keep the top of her spouse’s head intact after he’s shot, and her efforts to maintain dignity and majesty as she wonders what will happen to their “Camelot” legacy. Different people see Jackie’s many layers, from social secretary Nancy Tuckerman (Greta Gerwig) to her brother-in-law Bobby Kennedy (Peter Sarsgaard). But the

man who pulls real truth from Jackie is the elderly Father McSorley (John Hurt). Larrain intersperses his characters with real news footage and recordings from the era, Mica Levi’s haunting string score expertly heightens Jackie’s tumultuous state, and while its non-linear narrative muddies the plot, Noah Oppenheim’s otherwise tight screenplay offers a variety of interesting confrontations between Jackie and the political players around her. An Oscar best-actress contender if there is one, Portman gives such a tour-de-force showing that

many of her best moments are silent performances. Aboard Air Force One, she weepily wipes blood off her face as Jackie makes herself presentable for the swearing-in of Lyndon B. Johnson (John Carroll Lynch). Later, a shell-shocked Jackie quietly takes off her bloodstained dress at the White House before finally breaking down in the shower. The actress has done her research, with her breathless vocals resembling Jackie’s, yet Portman gives her a distinctive spark, especially in the way she handles her children and Bobby. Brandishing an inconsistent Massachusetts accent, Sarsgaard is still strong as RFK, who laments not being able to do much for the country. “What did we accomplish?” he asks Jackie. “We’re just the beautiful people.” The interesting matter of Jackie’s place in the center of a political storm is only touched on, but the film leans more into the personal moments, such as Jackie playing the final song on the Camelot soundtrack on her bedroom Victrola before leaving the White House for good. “There won’t be another Camelot,” Jackie tells White. And there may never be another Jackie, thanks to Portman’s signature, spectacular turn.

Dear Annie: I have a handsome 23-yearold son who has been dealing with Asperger’s syndrome for about 20 years. He has grown from a very young child who didn’t look at or talk to people other than the family to a young man who can even share small talk with people, attend college and be a successful track and field athlete. However, he still has a terrible time knowing how to act around women, and he observes people around him for clues. He recently received a phone call from the campus police asking him to stop by. A woman had reported him because she felt uncomfortable around him at a dance. He had danced with her, sat and talked with her, and gotten her some punch, but then

he put his arm around her. He did this because that’s what he had observed while watching other guys and girls. He felt terrible because he really liked her and is still missing the friendship that could have been. He was banned from all the dorms and ordered to stay away from this woman. There was an appeal process, and the school lifted the ban on the dorms after everyone understood

‘Incorporated’ is bad enough to be fun Set some 50 years in the future, “Incorporated” (9 p.m., Syfy) presents a dark vision of a doomed world not that different from our own. Global warming has ruined the planet, and corporations wield near total power. Lucky lackeys for big businesses live in the idyllic Green Zone. The rest of humanity struggles for survival in the slums of the Red Zone. Our hero, Ben Larson (Sean Teale, ‘‘Reign’’), appears to be a man on the rise. He married well, to a fetching plastic surgeon who is the estranged daughter of Elizabeth (Julia Ormond), the cruel boss of a monstrous corporation, a woman who consigns her enemies to the company torturer (Dennis Haysbert). We quickly learn that Ben is playing a long game of infiltration to help his family in the Red Zone and perhaps commit more extensive subversion. Not unlike filmed versions of ‘‘Minority Report,’’ this effort is filled with shiny technology like floating screens and transparent communicators only slightly less impressive than contemporary smartphones. Self-driving cars take the sting out of drinking and driving, a benefit for Ben’s corporate colleagues, who all appear to have been lifted from the pages of ‘‘American Psycho.’’ Produced by Matt Damon and Ben Affleck, ‘‘Incorporated’’ seems confident enough of its pedigree to engage in some cheesy soap operatics. The dialogue never quite rises above the stiff and predictable, and the acting would not be out of place on ‘‘Pretty Little Liars.’’ And that appears intentional. A grim, cautionary tale about unchecked greed, cruelty and power, ‘‘Incorporated’’ is bad enough to be fun. l “Vikings” (8 p.m., History) returns for the second half of its fourth season. After the Paris disaster and an unexplained hiatus, Ragnar (Travis Fimmel) is very much old and in the way. His sons have agendas of their own, and even Lagertha (Katheryn Winnick) appears to have found her own shieldmaiden. Can our hero get his groove back? Or have we embarked on ‘‘Vikings: The Next Generation, the Sons of Ragnar Lothbrok’’? l The 2016 holiday movie “Dolly Parton’s Christmas of Many Colors: Circle of Love” (8 p.m., NBC offers a continued autobiographical glance at the singer’s humble origins and burgeoning musical talents.

Now, after this involvement with campus police, the Title IX department — which we didn’t know existed — has gotten involved. It has some classes that will help him to understand body language and facial expressions. I hope this will help him, but I also hope and pray that people, especially women, will give him a chance.

Eudora district considers relocating preschool program By Elvyn Jones

The Eudora school district is exploring using vacated classrooms in a school now used mainly for district offices as a way to free up classrooms at Eudora Elementary School. Superintendent Steve Splichal said the Eudora school board is considering moving the students in the Eudora Elementary School preschool program to West Elementary next school year. The $45 million 2007 bond referendum that provided the $27 million to build Eudora Elementary School also provided funds to convert classrooms at West

Elementary for preschool and kindergarten use. Those classrooms were used for that purpose from the fall of 2009 until state budget cuts in 2010 prompted the district to move preschool and kindergarten programs to Eudora Elementary School. In addition to housing the district’s administrative offices, West also contains offices for the Southeast Kansas Education Service Center. “We have a good facility at West,” Splichal said. “It is something the board is taking a look at. The facility has been well cared for. With the space available, it makes sense to use it.” The district’s preschool

additional safety valve against enrollment growth beyond the move under consideration, Splichal said. However, he pointed out that Eudora Elementary was designed so that a sixth pod, or group of classrooms, could be added to its existing five pods. “We have the space for a sixth pod, and the utilities are all in the ground,” he said. “There will be a time when the board and the community will have a conversation on if it make sense to build a sixth pod. We’re not ready to start that conversation and probably won’t be for a couple of years, but it’s always there as we continue to look at enrollment projections and class sizes.”

Kaylee Clancy, who attends Lawrence’s Langston Hughes Elementary School, placed third in Division I of the 2016 nationwide poster contest, which is sponsored by the National Association of Pupil Transportation and aims to promote safer school transportation. Clancy, a second-grader at the time she submitted her poster, competed with kindergartners, firstand second-graders in her division. The theme

tions. Anything that would add more activity in the community, such as new housing or the development of the Nottingham property, would require an update of the enrollment analysis, Splichal said. Nottingham Elementary was the home of the district’s preschool, kindergarten, first- and second-grade classes before the opening of Eudora Elementary School. The district sold the vacant school and surrounding property last year to the city of Eudora, which is currently exploring its redevelopment with CBC Real Estate Group into a mixed-use retail/ residential center.

NEED FOR SPEED KANSAS GUARD DEVONTE’ GRAHAM tosses a pass during the second half Tuesday night.

Jayhawks sprint past Long Beach By Matt Tait

KANSAS GUARDS LAGERALD VICK (2) AND DEVONTE’ GRAHAM BREAK OUT into a dance after a three-pointer by teammate Tyler Self late in the second half Tuesday night in Allen Fieldhouse. For more photos, please visit: kubball112916

There are a variety of numbers one could point to while trying to demonstrate just how fast fourth-ranked Kansas played during Tuesday’s 91-61, run-away victory over Long Beach State at Allen Fieldhouse. But the one that might do the best job of describing it is one that is not often used in basketball circles — miles per hour. Had the Lawrence Police Department been running radar checks on any one of KU’s lightning-fast guards during Tuesday’s victory, it’s possible the knee-jerk reaction would have been to write them a speeding ticket. For large portions of KU’s beat-down of Long Beach State, Frank Mason III, Devonte’ Graham,

Coach still thinks we can play a lot faster.” — KU guard Frank Mason III Lagerald Vick and Josh Jackson were seen not as players in crimson and blue, but as blurs wearing white, pushing the ball up the floor in a matter of seconds, with easy transition buckets lighting up the scoreboard and very few dribbles or passes needing to be made to get there. While overwhelming the 49ers with their speed, skill and strength, the Jayhawks (6-1) shot .596 from the floor and .533 from three-point range while finishing with a 16-4 edge in transition points and 41-24 advantage on the glass.


Vick perfect complement for KU backcourt Tom Keegan

Larry Brown has worn stylish glasses for decades, but don’t let that fool you. There never has been anything wrong with Brown’s basketball eye. It served him well as a point guard for North Carolina, a three-time ABA All-Star, and as a

coach, where he remains the only man on the planet to win titles in both Div. I college basketball and the NBA. Brown’s basketball eye told him that Lagerald Vick, a long-limbed, springy, slender guard from the basketball hotbed of Memphis was

a player who could help him at SMU. Then a member of the Class of 2016, Vick committed to Brown two-plus years ago, then changed his mind, reclassified to 2015, and ultimately chose Kansas. Brown looked on Tuesday night from his

aisle seat in Allen Fieldhouse, two rows behind the Kansas bench, and Vick put on a show for him and the rest of the 16,300 spectators during KU’s 91-61 blowout victory against Long Beach State. Shooting 9-for-9 from the field, four of the

After preparing throughout the summer and fall, the offseason is finally over and some of Free State High’s winter sports teams will begin play today. Here is a look at what all of the Firebirds’ programs expect out of the upcoming season:

Boys basketball After posting a 15-7 record and finishing a couple points short of a trip to the Class 6A state tournament, Free State’s boys basketball team has

its eyes set on taking the next step. The Firebirds have a long list of returners including seniors Cameron Clark, Jay Dineen, Shannon Cordes, Jacob Pavylak and Sloan Thomsen. It’s one of the reasons the Firebirds were ranked sixth in the KBCA preseason coaches poll. “We have a lot of experience back,” second-year coach Sam Stroh said. “We have to figure who’s going to be kind of the go-to guy, which could be the open guy. I don’t think anyone is going to be like Hunter (Gudde)

last year who got us 20 points a night.” Along with several returning starters, the Firebirds hope to see a strong season from junior point guard Garrett Luinstra. Stroh said the Firebirds will work on figuring out their roles in the first few weeks, plus they’ll have a challenging schedule in December against several state-tournament teams. “We did that on purpose to try to challenge ourselves,” Stroh said of the schedule. The Firebirds will play Barstow (Mo.) in the 810

Brazilian soccer team’s plane crashes in Colombia; 71 dead EAST


Associated Press

La Union, Colombia (ap) — Colombian authorities searched for answers Tuesday into the crash of a chartered airliner that slammed into the Andes mountains while transporting a Brazilian soccer team whose Cinderella story had won it a spot in the finals of one of South America’s most prestigious regional tournaments. All but six of the 77 people on board were killed. The British Aerospace 146 short-haul plane declared an emergency and lost radar contact just before 10 p.m. Monday (0300 GMT Tuesday), according to Colombia’s aviation agency. It said the plane’s black boxes had been recovered and were being analyzed. The aircraft, which departed from Santa Cruz, Bolivia, was carrying the Chapecoense soc-

But on the court, the Firebirds still have many of the same faces that led the team to a 14-8 record last season. Entering the year ranked 10th in 6A, the Firebirds will have plenty of talent in the backcourt with the school’s all-time leading scorer and Santa Clara signee Madison Piper, point guard Cameryn Thomas, shooting guard Jaelyn Two Hearts and guard Jaycie Bishop. Then the Firebirds are confident they’ll see strong seasons

Match point, Kansas up 14-13 vs. No. 1 seed USC, the winner advancing to the Final Four. KU coach Ray Bechard flashed the hand signals to let Cassie Wait know that he wanted her to serve it to Zone 5, the right corner, where national player of the year Samantha Bricio stood. Wait followed orders and Bricio broke right, then watched a teammate intercept it. “They didn’t want (Bricio) to pass it, but her move to the right effectively took her out of the pattern she wanted to run,” Bechard said, pointing to the play on a video. At the 12-second mark of the 46-second long rally — 35 seconds longer than the average college rally — Bricio ran the pattern she wanted to run, and ran into a powerful, precisely placed shot that surely would even the match, except that it didn’t. Somehow, displaying remarkable quickness, Wait went horizontal and her hand beat the ball to the floor. “The dig of the century,” Bechard called it.

Sixteen years into the 21st century, Bechard might not have been guilty of hyperbole. It was that remarkable a shot. Madison Rigdon sent the Jayhawks to the Final Four with the winning kill, a bullet just inside the boundaries of the right corner, 46 seconds into a rally in which all six players touched it. Five of those players — All-Americans Ainise Havili and Kelsie Payne, Wait, Rigdon and Tayler Soucie — will try to get Kansas back to the Final Four for the second time in two years and in school history. Tiana Dockery is the only player on the floor for the dramatic rally who is not back. Dockery did not take the fifthset magic with her. The Jayhawks (26-2), who play host to Samford at 6:30 p.m. Thursday at Horejsi Center in a first-round NCAA Tournament match, carry the same record into the tourney as last season, plus the school’s first Big 12 championship banner. KU had to work harder to build that record this season by taking far many more matches to the limit. The Jayhawks went 8-0 in five-set matches and won them by an average

margin of 15-9. “No question, no question,” Bechard said of the USC experience helping Kansas play so well in five-set matches this season. Payne agreed. “Since that point we haven’t lost a fifth-set match, so I think that gives us a lot of confidence and we know that if it gets down to it, we know how to finish in a small set like that,” Payne said. Kansas prides itself on blanketing the floor with agile defenders and has played particularly well on that side of the floor during fifth sets. Nobody has played a bigger role in that this season senior middle blocker Soucie. And, of course, it doesn’t hurt to have Payne, Big 12 Player of the Year, attacking (six kills in five-set victory at Baylor in season finale). When matches go to the limit, Soucie becomes particularly stingy at the net. She had three fifthset blocks at K-State, two at West Virginia and two in the Big 12-title-clinching match at Horejsi. Last season, Kansas played just two five-set matches, losing at home to Texas in the regular season, and staging the

Sportsmanship also prevailed, with Atletico Nacional asking that the championship title be given to its rival, whose upstart run had electrified soccer-crazed Brazil. Rescuers working through the night were initially heartened after pulling three people alive from the wreckage. But as the hours passed, heavy fog and stormy weather grounded helicopters and slowed efforts to reach the crash site. Officials initially reported 81 people were on board the flight, but later revised that to 77, saying four people on the flight manifest did not get on the plane. Images broadcast on local television showed three of the six survivors on stretchers and connected to IVs arriving at a hospital in ambulances.

Chapecoense defender Alan Ruschel was in the most serious condition, and was later transported to another facility to undergo surgery for a spinal fracture. Teammates Helio Zampier and Jakson Follmann also suffered multiple trauma injuries, with doctors having to amputate the goalkeeper Follmann’s right leg. Bolivia’s civil aviation agency said the aircraft picked up the Brazilian team in Santa Cruz, where the players had arrived on a commercial flight from Sao Paulo. Spokesman Cesar Torrico said the plane underwent an inspection before departing for Colombia and reported no problems. “We can’t rule out anything. The investigation is ongoing and we’re going to await the results,” said Gustavo Vargas, a retired Bolivian air force general who is president of the airline. Colombian authorities said they hope to interview the Bolivian flight attendant who relayed the fuel concerns on Wednesday.

KU-CREIGHTON WOMEN AT A GLANCE Who: Kansas vs. Creighton When: 7 tonight Where: D.J. Sokol Arena Series: Kansas leads, 26-13

Shooting woes The Jayhawks have struggled to make shots for much of the young season. Last time out, Kansas started off with a field goal percentage of 67 percent, en route to a 23-point opening quarter. However, KU ended up with a measly 35.7 percent on its shots from the floor by the conclusion of its overtime win over North Dakota. The Jayhawks have now shot under 40 percent in four of their first five games from the floor, with an average clip of 34.7 percent on the year. It is even worse from downtown, where Kansas is hitting just 32 percent of its shots. Fast start Kansas came out firing on all cylinders out of the gate in Sunday’s thriller. The Jayhawks scored 23 points in the first frame, knocking down 8-of-12 shots, including 2-of-3 from

long range. The 23-point first period was 10 more points than any other opening quarter mark this season. In addition, it tied the highest first quarter total by Kansas under head coach Brandon Schneider. It will be crucial for the Jayhawks to get off to a strong start on the road in a hostile environment, if they hope to move to 4-2 on the year.

Streaking Junior guard Jessica Washington returned to the court after her one game suspension and Kansas was certainly thankful to have her back. Washington scored a team-high 19 points in 35 minutes played on 17 shot attempts. She hit 5-of-6 shots from the free throw line, including two to ice the game. Washington was one of three double digit scorers for the Jayhawks and the offensive appeared to be much better with her back running the show. Slumping There seemed to be a lid on the basket anytime sophomore Kylee Kopatich

unleashed a shot on Sunday. Kopatich hit just one of her 12 shots from the floor in 28 minutes of action. She even took 11 shots from long range.

Here’s the kicker. Both Self and his players believe things could have gone better. “Coach still thinks we can play a lot faster,” said Mason, who finished with eight points, eight assists and six rebounds in 28 minutes. “We think we can play a lot faster, too. We’ve just gotta find ways to pitch the ball ahead and get up the floor a little bit faster.” The fact that Mason was the one to point that out, no doubt helped KU coach Bill Self sleep Tuesday night. Because, even while acknowledging that this might be the fastest team he’s coached here at Kansas — Mason said it was the fastest KU team he’s played on — Self said one key element could make this group go faster. “A lot of it’s on Frank,” Self said. “If we’re gonna play faster, it needs to be on Frank, because as Frank goes, guys will follow. And he was kind of in first gear the entire time tonight.” First gear for Mason is the equivalent to fourth or fifth gear for a lot of point guards around the country. And that fact was not


what we have to do to be able to run. And also rebound the ball so we can get out and pitch it ahead and play fast from there.” Both Mason and Self said the four-guard lineup used by Kansas for much of the season so far has given the Jayhawks an advantage in the speed department. “I do think we can play faster, especially when we play four guards,” Self said. “When we won it in ’08, Shady’s (Darrell Arthur’s) your 4-man and he probably was faster than anybody we have. In just a sprint, I don’t know. But we’ve got four ball handlers and we haven’t had four ball handlers out there ever before.” As for how this team could manage to play even faster than it has to open the season, Graham (12 points, 4 assists, 2 steals in 28 minutes) summed it up with two simple words: Just run. “Early on, coach was yellin’, ‘Run, run, run,’ when we were jogging down the court,” Graham elaborated. “So it looked like we were playing fast, but we could play way faster. Just run.” KU’s next race, uh, game, is slated for 2:30 p.m. Saturday when 6-1 Stanford visits Allen Fieldhouse.

lost on LBSU coach Dan Monson, who took an unusually long time to get to the post-game press conference because he was likely busy expressing his disappointment to his players. “Kansas is a great team,” Monson said. “And when you’re a great team and you’re better than the opponent and then you play harder than them, it gets ugly.” Through the game’s first eight minutes, the 49ers had to feel much better about where they stood than in a few of their previous outings. After falling into recent holes of 16-2 and 30-8

during their treacherous non-conference schedule, LBSU (1-8) trailed Kansas just 14-13 at the 11:43 mark of the first half. But then the Jayhawks unleashed the greyhounds and never looked back, ripping off a 13-0 run during the next 3:06 to build a 27-13 lead that ballooned to 48-25 by halftime. Kansas played from the 20 or more ahead throughout the entire second half, building a lead of as large as 37 points before Self emptied the bench. Starting for the second game in a row, sophomore Lagerald Vick led

all scorers with 23 points and was a big part of that pace that helped Kansas cruise to victory. Both he and Jackson (13 points, 5 rebounds, 4 assists, 3 steals) appeared to play even faster than their straight-line speed because they were so active on the glass, so aggressive on defense and so fast in transition. “It all starts on the defensive end,” Mason said. “Playing high on the floor, denying passes, running through passes, rebounding the ball, pitching it ahead, finding the open guy; I think the key is getting defensive stops. That’s

up and down the court and staying alert at all times because the passes come fast and furious.

Vick’s breakaway slam late in the game would have made him 10-for-10 and tied him with Norm Cook and Danny Manning for most made field goals in a game without a miss by Kansas player, but the dunk was nullified. “I think Carlton must be mad at him or something because that was probably the worst foul we’ve committed since I’ve been here or Lagerald would have got the record,” Self said lightheartedly, adding he had no clue of the record until after the fact. Self was pleased with the improvement Vick showed during the offseason and once the

season arrived it was easy to see why. “He’s improved a ton,” Self said. “He’s confident. He’s reacting instead of thinking, for the most part. He’s not always going to shoot like that, but after getting off to a really poor start shooting it, I think he’s made seven of his last eight threes. He attacks the rim well and he’s going to end up being one of our best defenders. He’s really improved a ton.” Vick’s 7 of 8 threepoint hot streak came after he started the season 1-of-13 from long distance. Vick said that after a poor shooting night at one of the two Sprint Center games, assistant coach Kurtis Townsend told him he was drifting back on his shot. Vick added that a friend sent him video, which validated what Townsend had told him, and Vick applied the fix practicing his shot. The result: KU GUARD LAGERALD VICK RUNS BACK ON DEFENSE after perfection. knocking down a three-pointer.

Injured Lucas stays on sidelines By Matt Tait

Kansas senior Landen Lucas was held out of Tuesday’s 91-61 victory over Long Beach State for what KU coach Bill Self described as “a little strain in his oblique or whatever it is in his side.” Lucas, who has struggled to regain the form that made him a key member of last year’s Elite Eight squad, suited up and went through warmups but never ditched the warm-up pants. It became clear that something was up when Self sent junior Dwight Coleby into the game ahead of Lucas midway through the first half. “He nicked himself up here recently and has kind of been playing through it and in shoot-around today you could just see he’d move one way and he kind of cringed and told (trainer) Bill (Cowgill) that he was gonna look at it,” Self added. “He said if he felt the same way he felt in shoot-around that he didn’t think he was gonna be able to go. And after we did our little warm-up, he came back and said he didn’t think he could go.” Lucas was back out with the team for halftime warm-ups but remained limited. Sitting out did not seem to impact his enjoyment of his team’s pretty performance. Lucas slapped fives and exchanged laughs with several teammates during the layup line before the start of the second half. Freshman 7-footer Udoka Azubuike started again and tallied eight points and seven rebounds in 23 minutes. Junior Dwight Coleby added two points and five rebounds in 12 minutes. And former starter Carlton Bragg Jr., recorded six points and six rebounds in 11 minutes, 10 of them coming in the second half. Because Self has been leaning toward more of a four-guard approach anyway so far this season, losing Lucas in the lineup did not have a major impact on the rotation.

KANSAS GUARD DEVONTE’ GRAHAM (4) drives around Long Beach State guard Loren Jackson (2) during the second half. It did, however, impact how KU’s other big men approached the game. “It affected us,” Bragg said of not having Lucas. “But that’s when other guys need to step up. He seemed a little down, like he couldn’t really get into it during warm-ups. I asked him if he was all right and he said, ‘Yeah,’ and then it started getting a little (worse).” Asked how long the injury might keep Lucas sidelined, Self said, “I have no idea.”

Larry Brown visits Former Kansas coach Larry Brown, who guided the Jayhawks to the 1988 NCAA title, was in Allen Fieldhouse again for Tuesday’s game, sitting a couple of rows behind KU’s bench, which was news to Self. “Well, I didn’t know he was gonna be here,” Self said. “So I didn’t see him until right before the game started when we walked out there.” Self said Brown was in town for some sort of engagement on Friday and that he thought he would stay through the weekend. “He’s gonna be around, I think, through our game Saturday,” Self said. “So hopefully we’ll get a

chance to have him over for practice Thursday and Friday.”

Red hot from three The Jayhawks knocked in a whopping 14 of the 26 three-point shots they attempted on Tuesday night, with four players draining two or more from downtown. The Jayhawks, which Self has called streaky good and streaky not-sogood from three-point range, are now out-shooting their opponents .388.368 from three-point range this season. “The way that Long Beach State played us, defensively, I thought was really smart,” Self said. “They totally disrupted us from a rhythm standpoint. The thing that they probably didn’t bank on was us making nine of our first 14 threes. Their plan was to not allow us to get easy baskets inside and hope we missed. And, fortunately for us, we knocked ’em down.” Jackson OK Self was asked for an update on freshman guard Josh Jackson, who, with a little less than three minutes to play in the game, lost control on the offensive end for one of his team-high four

A fresh approach to poaching salmon Postal Patron Local

PRSTRT STD U.S. Postage PAID Permit No. 108 Lawrence, Ks 66044-2243

By Sara Moulton


Associated Press

he French love to cook fish by poaching it in a flavored liquid, usually a combination of white wine and water, leeks or onions, and some herbs. It’s a lean way to roll because there’s no fat involved. And the finished product is reliably tender because it’s been cooked at a low temperature. So, it’s lean, tender and ... quite boring. I crave more flavor and texture. So here’s a recipe for poached salmon that adds the missing elements. Typically, poaching calls for a lot of liquid. The fish is supposed to be submerged as it cooks, after which the liquid usually is tossed. I wanted a way to poach the fish in a small amount of liquid, which then could do double duty as a sauce. Given that fish generally requires a spritz of acid to brighten it up, the ideal liquid needed to be acidic and intensely flavored. Green salsa — that is, tomatillo salsa with chilies and lime juice — struck me as a likely candidate. The salmon wouldn’t have to swim in a vat of the salsa. I made a modest batch and cooked the salmon in a smallish skillet with the salsa rising halfway up the sides of the fillets. I covered the pan tightly to trap the heat and flipped the salmon halfway through its cooking time to make sure it cooked evenly.

How do you know when the salmon is finished? If you slide a knife into it and the blade sails through the fillet with no resistance, it’s done. And be sure to pull it off the heat when there’s still a tiny bit of resistance left, which will allow for carry-over cooking time. For crunch, I sprinkled tortilla chips on top; they are salsa’s classic partner. But these were my own healthy baked chips, which take only 15 minutes. On the whole, this recipe is pretty quick and easy, but you can streamline it even further by picking up green salsa and baked tortilla chips at the supermarket.

Salmon Poached in Green Salsa and Topped with Baked Chips Start to finish: 40 minutes Servings: 4 Ingredients: For the tortilla strips: 2 tablespoons vegetable oil 1 teaspoon chili powder 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin Four 6-inch corn tortillas Kosher salt For the salmon: 8 ounces fresh tomatillos, husked, rinsed and quartered 1/2 cup coarsely chopped scallions (white and light green parts) 1/3 cup coarsely chopped fresh cilantro

1 tablespoon lime juice 1/2 jalapeno or serrano chili, seeds removed if desired 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped 2 tablespoons vegetable oil 1/2 cup finely chopped red onion Kosher salt and ground black pepper 1 1/2 pounds center-cut salmon fillet, cut into 4 equal portions Directions: To make the tortilla strips, heat the oven to 400 F. In a small bowl, stir together the oil, chili powder and cumin. Brush the oil mixture over both sides of each tortilla. Using a knife or pizza wheel, cut the tortillas into thin strips. Arrange the strips in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake the strips on the oven’s middle shelf for 6 to 8 minutes, or until crispy. Sprinkle with salt, let cool completely, then break them up slightly. Set aside. To prepare the salsa, in

a food processor, combine the tomatillos, scallions, cilantro, lime juice, chili and garlic. Pulse until the ingredients are almost smooth with a few small chunks. In a medium skillet over medium, heat the oil. Add the onion and cook, stirring, until softened, about 5 minutes. Add the tomatillo mixture and simmer gently, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes. If the mixture gets too dry, add 1/2 cup of water. Season with salt and pepper. Add the salmon to the skillet, skin sides down, then cover the skillet tightly and simmer gently for 5 minutes. Turn the salmon over, cover tightly and simmer gently until the salmon is almost cooked through, about another 5 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and let the salmon stand for 3 minutes, covered, before serving. To serve, transfer a portion of salmon to each of 4 plates, then top each with sauce and tortilla strips.
