November revenues meet new, lowered estimates




Draft horses, coach return as parade finale

nce again, viewers of the Lawrence Old-Fashioned Christmas Parade will have to stay to the end to see Robin Dunn’s team of Percheron draft horses and the stage coach they pull. It’s that true-todetail reproduction of a 19th century Wells Fargo Inside: Overland Parade stage on good coach financial that earns footing Dunn her through spot at 2017. 2A the end of the parade. For many of the parade’s 24 years, Dunn’s stage coach has provided Santa Claus with his ride from the Douglas County Fairgrounds to downtown Lawrence.

Dunn’s team will be the last in this year’s parade, where she will be carrying a Marine and a police officer with Toys for Tots.




DUNN’S COACH makes its way down Massachusetts Street in last year’s parade, on Dec. 5, 2015. The coach will return for Saturday’s parade.

This year’s Old-Fashioned Christmas Parade is set for Saturday morning. The parade departs from the Douglas County Fairgrounds at 9 a.m., arrives downtown at 11 a.m. and travels along Massachusetts Street from Seventh to 13th streets before making its way back to the fairgrounds.

officials has been set to discuss how to improve the safety of the intersection of the SLT and what is commonly called Kasold Drive, although it actually is county road East 1200, but it aligns with Kasold.

Among the varied topics at City Manager Tom Markus’ second “listening post” — held on this occasion at Haskell Indian Nations University — was the city’s link with the venue itself. Chris Sindone, student senate president for Haskell, said Markus he thought the event was a good step toward creating a stronger relationship between the city and Haskell.

Topeka — Tax revenues flowing into state coffers barely exceeded the official estimates in November, mainly because budget forecasters significantly lowered those estimates earlier in the month. That means the state did not add to its looming $350 million budget shortfall in November, but neither did it make any progress in closing that gap. The Kansas Department of Jordan Revenue said Thursday that total taxes collected in November came in at $401.3 million, or 0.3 percent above the newly revised estimates. That included $174 million in individual income taxes, which was slightly above the new estimate but still $9.7 million, or 5.3 percent below November 2015. Revenue Secretary Nick Jordan said that was mainly due to a difference in the timing of withholding payments.

Parade funds look good through 2017


The visual pop that the Percheron stage coach provides is greatly appreciated, said Marty Kennedy, president of the Lawrence Old-Fashioned Christmas Parade LLC. “Robin brings a great vehicle, a great team of horses and just a lot of history and character to our parade,” he said. The parade started a new tradition in 2015 of having Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus bring up the rear of the parade on horseback, Kennedy said. As the second to last parade entry, Dunn’s coach will give the Claus couple visual framing. Dunn, who has been in the parade in all but its first year, said she will still have a couple of important gift-bearing passengers in her stage coach as the parade starts at 9:30 a.m. from the Douglas County Fairgrounds, arriving downtown at 11 a.m. to travel from Seventh to 13th streets on Massachusetts Street before making its way back to the fairgrounds. “There will be a decorated Marine and Blue Santa from the Lawrence Police Department in my stage,” Dunn said. “It’s something we started last year for Toys for Tots.” The parade will be a special anniversary for her team of Bruce and Bill. Dunn said the 6and 7-year-old team of brothers made their first public appearance in the 2015 parade. It was a bittersweet experience for Dunn, as she had retired her older team of Percherons shortly before at the Governor’s Christmas Tree Lighting at Cedar Crest in Topeka. “The last time I went out with them was when I delivered the governor’s Christmas tree,” she said. “The governor drove them around Cedar Crest. That’s a pretty good way to go out.” She had to put the older team of Buck and Bill down earlier this year when one of the horses developed cancer and the other was in failing health from old age. “It was time,” she said. “I had them for 15 years. That was a tough day. They lived to a very old age for draft horses. They were full brothers who were trained together. When one goes, the other one would never


But retail sales taxes, which are often used as a barometer of consumer spending, came in at only $181 million, slightly below the official estimate and 3.6 percent below November of last year. “Retail sales and corporate taxes continue to show negative growth due to agricultural and energy sector weakness,” Jordan said. Another shortfall, which some might consider to be


“We’re neighbors and sometimes it doesn’t feel like it,” Sindone said. “But we live next to each other so we should definitely start acting like it.” Markus, who came to Lawrence after serving as the city manager of Iowa City, said he plans to hold listening posts at several times and locations in order to speak with a crosssection of people.

A local business stepped up to provide funding needed to ensure this year’s OldFashioned Christmas Parade would go off Saturday as scheduled, said Marty Kennedy, president of the Lawrence Old-Fashioned Christmas Parade LLC. “We’re on track to get funding from the city for our 25th annual parade next year,” he said. “We’ll have the parade Saturday, and the 25th anniversary parade is happening, also.” Kennedy said the parade gets good support from businesses and individuals. Donations to the parade can be made through the Lawrence chamber of commerce, Kennedy said. Contact information can be found at the LLC’s website, lawrencechristmas

good news, was a drop in cigarette taxes. Kansas collected just more than $10 million in cigarette taxes last month, which was a little more than expected, but it represented an 11 percent drop compared with last year. But taxes on other tobacco products, including e-cigarettes, rose 41 percent compared with last year. On Nov. 10, the state’s Consensus Revenue Estimating Group released new, updated forecasts for the current fiscal year, lowering the estimate by $355 million, or about 6 percent, compared with the previous estimate made in the spring.

That means that even if revenues continue to meet the new, lower estimates through the end of June, they would be about $350 million less than the state has budgeted to spend. The group also said revenues in the next fiscal year, which begins July 1, are expected to grow a mere 1.4 percent, far less than the state needs to keep up with rising costs, creating an estimated $583 million shortfall for that year. That report prompted some legislative leaders, including Senate President Susan Wagle, R-Wichita, to call on Gov. Sam Brownback to take immediate

action to bring the budget into balance. That would most likely require another series of allotment cuts to higher education and other state programs. Brownback, however, has declined to do so. Instead, he has said he will submit a budget plan to the 2017 Legislature when it convenes in January. And although he declined to say specifically what measures he is considering, his communications office has said he is not planning to enact sweeping cuts or mass layoffs of state employees. That has prompted some to speculate that he

will propose selling off the state’s future tobacco settlement payments in exchange for a lump-sum payment that could help close this year’s budget gap. Meanwhile, though, state officials are still awaiting a Kansas Supreme Court decision on the pending school finance lawsuit, which many expect will include an order to increase K-12 education funding by hundreds of millions of dollars a year, which would only add to the projected shortfalls.

is meant to be the City Commission’s strategic planning process, the community’s vision, and challenges and opportunities facing Lawrence. In all, about 20 people attended the listening post session, which was held Thursday evening at Navarre Hall at Haskell Indian Nations University, 155 E. Indian Ave. Anna Buhlinger, the city-university liaison intern, helped organize the listening post. Sindone said such efforts help build a better bridge between the city and Haskell. He said more

collaboration between the city, Haskell and the University of Kansas should be incorporated into the city’s strategic plan. “Making these connections, we’re going to start to collaborate more, cooperate with one another, support each other’s events and different things going on,” Sindone said. “It really shows a community’s strength when everyone is united.” Each participant brought their own — and usually several — concerns to Markus as part of the listening post. Joshua Arce, chief

information officer for Haskell, also said he was at the event to support the initiative between Haskell and the city. In addition, Arce said he wants to see the city continue its support for social service programs, such as Independence Inc., LawrenceDouglas County Housing Authority and the Citizen Review Board. “I think those are very unique to Douglas County and to Lawrence, but also need to remain a priority,” Arce said. Others were also concerned with prioritizing aspects of the community

they thought made the city unique. Ron Gaches said he wanted to make sure the strategic plan, in addition to covering basics such as law enforcement and infrastructure investments, prioritized the city’s comprehensive culture and arts program. “I’m concerned that some of what makes Lawrence really unique, which is the broad support and interest in the arts and culture community, might get overlooked in the strategic planning process,” Gaches said. Gaches, though not affiliated with Haskell, said he

Student Senate leaders share updates on diversity goals


year ago, KU’s Student Senate was embroiled in an impeachment attempt that threatened to kick out the 2015-16 executive officers, whom some accused of failing to do enough to support black and other marginalized students. Those officers ultimately kept their jobs, and took some steps to increase diversity and inclusion in the Senate before their terms were up. The new student body president and vice president, elected in April, made the issue one of the most important in their campaign platform. On Wednesday, 2016-17 Student Body President Stephonn Alcorn, a senior from Gardner; Vice President Gabby

Sushi bar, fast-food restaurants found with health violations

In May, we reported that Yokohama Sushi Downtown had temporarily closed its doors after finding a number of live roaches. And although it’s back on the restaurant inspection list, I feel it’s important to say the restaurant’s newest inspection report does not show that more live roaches were found. Rather, the majority of the restaurant’s violations were

Noncritical citations include unlabeled products, improperly stored cleaning materials, minor plumbing issues and more.

BRIEFLY Masterson will challenge Wagle for Kansas Senate president


Nick Krug/Journal-World Photo

TRAFFIC FLOWS THROUGH THE RECENTLY-MODIFIED INTERSECTION at Kansas Highway 10 and East 1200 Road on Friday, Nov. 25. Recently, stick-like barriers were placed on either side of the intersection to prevent motorists from crossing K-10. would be built to connect Crossgate to the existing county route of East 1150. East 1150 Road already has a bridge across the Wakarusa River and already connects with County Route 458. The debate here is probably not whether another interchange is needed for the South Lawrence Trafficway, but where it ought to be. Douglas County officials, as we have reported, already have begun planning for the day when there would be an interchange at Wakarusa Drive, near the entrance to the Youth Sports Complex. It also would extend to the south to connect to County Route 458. The county already has put the project on its longrange capital improvement plan. It estimates it would cost about $8 million just to build the local roads. KDOT would be responsible for building the actual interchange, and that

easily could be more than $10 million. Male’s lobbying efforts likely will be to get the county — and to a degree, the city because it likely will be asked to share in the cost — to consider Crossgate Drive. Male said the big selling point for a Crossgate alignment is that it could use the existing Wakarusa River bridge on East 1150. The Wakarusa alignment would require a new bridge in order to connect to County Route 458. Male may have his work cut out for him to get the county to change its mind. Browning said the point about the bridge is a valid one, but he said the wide floodplain near a Crossgate alignment may make building a road more difficult and expensive there. Plus, he said Wakarusa Drive just seems like a more natural fit as a western entrance into Lawrence. It puts the interchange closer to the entrance

Topeka (ap) — Senate President Susan Wagle will have a challenger next week for the presidency of the Kansas Senate. Sen. Ty Masterson, of Andover, told Republican colleagues in a letter that he plans to challenge Wagle, of Wichita. The Wichita Eagle reports Masterson, who is budget chairman, helped lead budget negotiations during the past two sessions when the state had serious budget shortfalls. He also Masterson helped craft the bill that repealed the state’s school finance formula in 2015 and replaced it with block grants. Masterson has been a close ally of Gov. Sam Brownback and a strong supporter of income tax cuts the Legislature passed in 2012. Wagle has recently challenged Brownback on fiscal issues and has hinted she would consider rolling back part of the tax cuts. Wagle

to the Youth Sports Complex, which is a major generator of traffic during certain times of the year. Under Male’s plan, a frontage road would be built from the Crossgate interchange to the sports complex. Whatever the case, don’t expect an interchange to emerge anytime soon. Browning said the environmental study required for KDOT to undertake a project of this nature likely would take about three years. Then there is the question of where KDOT would get the money to build the project. Then there is the question of whether the city of Lawrence would contribute any money to help pay for the local portion of the project. All of that could lead to several more debates. — This is an excerpt from Chad Lawhorn’s Town Talk column, which appears each weekday on

The intersection was the site of a multivehicle injury accident last week. Although it is just one accident, tensions are raised around the intersection. There is a fear more are to come because the accident occurred shortly after the intersection was configured to become a right-in, right-out only intersection. It also occurred shortly after traffic volumes increased significantly because of the opening of the east leg of the SLT. Residents of southern Douglas County have contended that the intersection is a vital link to the western part of Lawrence. Some have argued that a traffic signal should be put at the intersection. Browning worked to douse those hopes when I talked with him. He said the upcoming discussion with KDOT — which he said would happen “very soon” — won’t be to discuss a traffic signal. Instead, it will discuss adding more signs to make it clearer that the intersection is right-in and right-out. Browning said more signs could be useful, but he stopped short of saying the intersection is confusing without them. The intersection is marked with double yellow lines, which are illegal to cross, and the configuration of the intersection naturally makes it difficult to go straight across the SLT. (Anybody doing so would have to first turn right and then turn back to the left in order to cross.) Browning’s main message is if you are thinking of trying to cross the SLT — technically Kansas Highway 10 — at Kasold, don’t do it. “It is hard for me to imagine that people think crossing K-10 at Kasold is now a safe alternative,” Browning said. “I can’t comprehend that.” But additional signs making that clear would not hurt anything. KDOT has placed a large, temporary electronic sign just north of the intersection alerting motorists that only right turns are allowed at the intersection. What type of permanent signs may be put in place is one question. The bigger question, though, is how many wrecks will it take at the intersection before KDOT goes back to its original thinking, which was that the intersection should be closed entirely? That brings me to the second update: an idea for a new multimillion dollar interchange that would make the Kasold intersection unnecessary. The idea is being floated by Lawrence businessman Frank Male. He is the owner of a landscape company that has a facility just south of the Kasold and SLT intersection. Male also is active in county politics, and he indicated to me that he is going try to start lobbying support for a new plan that he hopes could be implemented in a few years. The idea essentially is a Crossgate Drive interchange for the South Lawrence Trafficway. Crossgate is the next major street west of Kasold Drive. Male is proposing that Crossgate Drive be extended southward to connect with the SLT. Instead of connecting with an intersection, Crossgate would connect to an interchange with on and off ramps.

School board failing public Residents are ill-served by district officials who thwart principles of open government.


he Lawrence school district and the Lawrence school board are failing constituents when it comes to open government. The district’s instinct is to keep the public in the dark about all matters perceived to be the least bit controversial. Sadly, the public’s chosen representatives on the Lawrence school board are all too comfortable acquiescing to that approach rather than standing up for the public’s right to know. School board members Marcel Harmon, Shannon Kimball, Kristie Adair, Jessica Beeson, Jill Fincher, Rick Ingram and Vanessa Sanburn are failing the people who elected them, and it shouldn’t be OK. This week, the board voted to accept the resignation of a teacher without naming the teacher. The decision to keep the teacher’s name secret conflicts with the Kansas Open Records Act. The Act makes clear that all records of public agencies are open to public inspection with limited exceptions defined in Kansas Statutes 45-221. Specifically, item (4) of the statute states that personnel records are exempt from disclosure “except that this exemption shall not apply to the names, positions, salaries or actual compensation employment contracts or employment-related contracts or agreements and lengths of service of officers and employees of public agencies once they are employed as such.” It’s indisputable — Kansas lawmakers went to great lengths to ensure the names, positions and compensation of employees of public agencies are matters of public record. Contrast what the law requires with what the School Board did Monday night when it voted to approve the resignation of “an employee who was the subject of (a) pending investigation.” Given the opportunity to name the employee, the district and board refused, saying that doing so would violate the employee’s confidentiality. Except that when it comes to employment status with the district, the employee has no right to confidentiality. Teacher contracts are with the local board of education; thus the board is required to act on contract changes, including teacher resignations. Such changes must be acted on in public session and since state law dictates that the employees’ names and positions are a matter of public record, there’s no valid reason for not releasing them. Put another way, the state has dictated that the public has the right to know the who, what, when and where when it comes to teachers in public schools. That’s why, until this most recent resignation, the school board has always named employees in acting on their employment status. The irony of this specific situation is that the board identified the resigning teacher as the “subject of a pending investigation” and then said it couldn’t name the teacher because of employee confidentiality rules. The board could have simply accepted the resignation of the teacher, named him and identified his school and the subject that he taught. Doing so would have met the requirements of the law and protected the teacher’s confidentiality. One of the important roles that newspapers like the Journal-World play in their communities is to be vigilant in advocating for open government. It’s a lot easier for public agencies to make difficult decisions in secret, and if open records and open meetings violations aren’t challenged, such misguided behavior is reinforced. As this latest episode shows, the Lawrence School Board has demonstrated a disturbing lack of transparency in conducting its business. That needs to change immediately.

Will Trump embrace new weapons? Washington — The Pentagon has begun briefing key allies on plans for advanced weapons technologies aimed at offsetting Russian and Chinese military gains. But the next round of these discussions is on hold awaiting approval of the programs by the Trump administration. Deputy Defense Secretary Robert Work said that he met in early November for “formal collaborations” with close foreign partners to explain the high-tech weapons systems, which are aimed at restoring U.S. dominance in conventional warfare. This approach, which seeks to leverage U.S. leadership in computer technology, is known within the Pentagon by the cumbersome moniker, the “third offset strategy.” The handoff to the next administration is delicate. During the Obama administration, the Pentagon has become increasingly worried about Russian and Chinese improvements in weapons technology and their aggressive, risk-taking behavior. The push for new weapons systems reflects those fears. But President-elect Donald Trump has said he hopes to improve relations with Russia, a process that might be complicated by a new hightech arms race. Work summarized an unclassified version of the briefing he shared with allies. It proposes interlocking systems of computer-driven sensors, battle-management

networks, kinetic weapons and logistics. The aim is to create systems that are so fast and pervasive that they can overwhelm what Work described as an adversary’s “OODA loop,” meaning its capacity for “observation, orientation, decision and action.” Work briefed Trump’s transition team about these technologies on Tuesday. He also shared with them a summary prepared by the Pentagon’s Office of Net Assessment describing in graphical form the declining U.S. edge, or “overmatch,” in conventional weapons, relative to Russia and China. “Our conventional overmatch has been eroding for some time,” Work said in an interview at his Pentagon office. “It’s not at a critical stage yet, but it is concerning. And as we look at the trends, we say, when it comes to conventional warfighting, we don’t want fair fights.” Instead, he said, the Pentagon wants “short, sharp and victorious” conflicts. Work’s spokesman wouldn’t describe the Trump team’s reaction to

the “third offset” briefing, or whether they’ve signaled that they will continue the programs. Work has deferred a planned second set of meetings with allies so that these contacts can have Trump’s blessing. “Our hope is that, obviously, this thinking ... will be accepted in some way, shape or form by the new administration,” he said. “The most powerful signal that they could give is if they had the next follow-on meeting, which would indicate to our allies, OK, you know, the ship continues to go in the [same] general direction,” Work explained. Support from allies is important because the new “overmatch” strategy is designed to allow foreign partners to “plug into” the complex sensor, battlemanagement and weapons systems, Work said. “You just have to have the right plugs ... so that machines can talk to machines.” As the machines process the information, they would make it available in the cockpits of airplanes, in seaborne command centers or even on the helmet visors of individual soldiers. The power of the new systems comes from their ability to fuse different sensors, platforms and weapons, and to coordinate unmanned systems on land, sea, in the air and underwater. Some of these systems sound like video-game warfare, and others have an ominous resemblance to “killer robots”

or swarms of tiny drones. The value of such ultrahigh-tech battle networks, from the Pentagon’s perspective, is that they would radically complicate a potential adversary’s ability to plan an attack — and thereby, in theory, provide better deterrence. Work has been the chief advocate of this new warfighting concept. After he gave a briefing on the “third offset” concept to a bipartisan strategy group in Aspen, Colorado, last summer, some members argued that he should remain at the Pentagon, whoever was elected, to provide continuity. When asked if he hoped to stay involved, Work responded: “I am very invested in this. ... I will help the next administration in any way I can to help make sure that this type of thinking continues.” Work warned about the danger of halting or slowing the new programs. “We have this momentum built up now inside the department,” he said, noting that the challenge wasn’t just to develop the technologies, but to incorporate them into the U.S. military’s doctrine, training and war-gaming exercises. Would this new generation of weapons provide greater strategic stability with Russia and China, or more instability? Of the many national-security issues facing Trump, this is among the most consequential. — David Ignatius is a columnist for Washington Post Writers Group.

Transition proposals more important than team In recent days, the transition focus has been on President-elect Donald Trump’s retreat from some high-profile campaign stances and his personnel choices, including some unseemly public infighting over whether former critic Mitt Romney should be secretary of state. But the more important aspect of the transition for Trump’s long-term success may be the extent to which his team and congressional Republicans can craft viable legislative proposals to implement the policy changes he promised would spur economic growth and “make America great again.”

Carl Leubsdorf

Trump himself signaled in his revised 100-day agenda that he realizes this may prove harder than his sweeping campaign rhetoric suggested. He stressed using his executive authority to spur energy production and crack down on visa violators and excluded such high-profile promises as repealing and replacing Obamacare, building a wall to stop illegal immigration from Mexico and enacting a massive job-creating $1 trillion infrastructure upgrade program. In each area, Trump could confront significant differences with congressional Republicans, who developed their own legislative proposals in hopes of having a GOP president to help enact them. Potentially contentious areas include: l Infrastructure. It’s crucial to Trump’s hope of creating millions of new jobs and spurring economic growth. But Republican lawmakers are expressing concern about the cost, reflecting their long-held belief that new spending programs should be totally funded.

Senate Democrats like the idea better but plan to fight a rumored version that would finance some $1 trillion in upgrades to roads, bridges, tunnels and airports with tax credits designed to encourage contractors to undertake needed projects. Some Republicans would prefer to confine new tax breaks to a tax reform bill. Ron Klain, a former top aide to President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden, warned Democrats in The Washington Post that Trump’s tax credit proposal was a “trap” to get support for “a tax-cut plan for utility-industry and construction-sector investors, and a massive corporate welfare plan for contractors” because there was no guarantee it would fund any new projects. Another possibility is some version of Hillary Clinton’s campaign promise for an infrastructure bank designed to attract private investment for new projects. l Obamacare. Trump pledged to ask Congress on Day 1 “to immediately deliver a full repeal of Obamacare.” GOP lawmakers are chomping at the bit, having voted some 60 times in recent years to repeal the landmark Affordable Care Act. Selecting Rep. Tom Price as secretary of health and

human services puts a strong voice for repeal in the Cabinet. But Trump complicated matters when he told The Wall Street Journal he might keep popular but costly provisions requiring insurers to cover those with pre-existing conditions and let parents cover their children until age 26. That raises the question of helping insurance companies pay their costs if the program’s revenue-raising sections are killed. Senate Democrats, meanwhile, say they’ll fight any effort to scrap Obamacare and, with 48 votes, may be able to force a compromise on replacing it. Some Republican governors are reportedly concerned about the political impact of depriving 22 million constituents of their newly acquired health care. Adding to the potentially politically incendiary mix, Price backs fellow House Republicans trying to partially privatize Medicare, a program Trump said he’d protect. The outcome is murky, but lawmakers might end up revising the ACA over a two- or three-year period, rather than eliminating it. l Immigration. Trump’s repeated promise to build “a great wall” to block immigration and make Mexico pay the tab may find favor in neither Congress nor Mexico.

And in a post-election interview on CBS’ “60 Minutes,” Trump seemed to back off building a wall that is “impenetrable, physical, tall, powerful,” noting “there could be some fencing” in what might become a less dramatic expansion of the current combination of physical and electronic barriers along the 1,989-mile U.S.-Mexico border. l Tax reform. This remains the likeliest area for action within Trump’s first six months because congressional Republicans have already done substantial work on possible legislation. Most pending proposals would simplify the current tax laws and reduce taxes for all, with the biggest breaks going to corporations and the wealthiest taxpayers. But some analysts fear the revenue loss from Trump’s tax plan would balloon the deficit, even using “dynamic scoring” by which GOP sponsors can claim that economic growth will offset most of it. Trump vowed to increase annual economic growth, below 2.5 percent for the past decade, to 4 percent, a level not achieved since the 19971999 dotcom boom. And he promised to create 25 million new jobs, setting a clear target to measure his success. — Carl P. Leubsdorf is the former Washington bureau chief of the Dallas Morning News.

Topeka (ap) — A Kansas physician’s assistant has pleaded guilty to breaking federal law while treating patients with Botox and another drug used cosmetically to prevent wrinkles. The U.S. attorney’s office says in a news release that 53-year-old Joel Erskin, of Garden City, admitted Thursday to one count of receiving and dispensing misbranded drugs. He admitted through his plea to purchasing cheaper versions of Botox and Juvederm from Canadian pharmacies while he owned and operated Renovo Medical. The business also is known as University Medical. The release says the Botox he purchased was misbranded and failed to meet labeling requirements. The Juvederm was adulterated and not approved for U.S. distribution. Erskin didn’t inform his clients that the drugs were purchased from Canada and didn’t meet federal standards. Sentencing is set for Dec. 20.

Herington (ap) — The Environmental Protection Agency says it has reached a proposed settlement with Union Pacific Railroad over a sulfuric acid spill in Herington five years ago. The EPA said Wednesday the railroad has agreed to pay a $24,000 civil penalty and complete a $338,100 environmental project because the spill violated federal clean water laws. The Salina Journal reports the railroad agreed to install earthen berms and other structures to minimize runoff from the railroad’s yard in Herington into Lime Creek. Two railroad tank cars at the yard collided in January 2012, releasing 11,000 gallons of sulfuric acid. The EPA says the spill affected about two miles of the creek and caused a fish kill. The settlement doesn’t become final until a public comment period ends Dec. 15.

In other matters, here are two KU items of note I spotted today in online news: l Jayhawk with Supreme Court potential: USA Today included KU alumnus David Stras in a roundup of 21 possible U.S. Supreme Court nominees by President-elect Donald Trump.

Thomas, according to USA Today. His name was first reported as a potential nominee in May. l Instagram hot spot: KU, once again, is the most-Instagrammed place in Kansas, based on geotagging, USA Today reports. KU’s famous Allen Fieldhouse is No. 4 on the list.

Wichita (ap) — A man has been sentenced to eight years and four months in prison in the fatal shooting death of a Wichita concrete company worker. The Wichita Eagle reports that 43-year-old Deon Nolan Hale was sentenced Wednesday for voluntary manslaughter in the death of Efren Antonio Villarreal-Alvarado. Authorities have said robbery motivated the February 2014 shooting of the 43-year-old as he sat in his truck. The sentence imposed was the maximum allowable. But the victim’s ex-wife, Dawn Villarreal, said it was too short and that “the system has failed us.” Another man, Donnie Lalonde, was sentenced previously to 24 years in the killing. The homicide conviction is the second for Hale, who also goes by Auriel Huntstwobears. The first was second-degree reckless murder for a 1997 killing in Douglas County.


On Dec. 2, 1950, a late-season tornado killed four people in Madison and Bond counties of Illinois.

Trump picks a ‘war fighter’ to lead Defense Retired Marine general Mattis is a departure from more civilian control at Pentagon Jim Michaels @jimmichaels USA TODAY

James Mattis, a retired fourstar general, achieved almost mythic status within the Marine Corps as an aggressive combat commander and innovative strategist whose speeches and writings defined the warrior ethos for the latest generation of military men and women. Donald Trump’s decision to name Mattis to head the Defense Department would be a strong NEWSLINE

signal that the president-elect is looking for a wartime leader at the Pentagon and not someone to just manage budgets. At a rally in Cincinnati Thursday night, Trump noted that Mattis had been chosen for the post. During the campaign, Trump said he would overhaul the U.S. strategy to defeat the Islamic State. Trump has said the current plan isn’t working and suggested some military leaders had been cowed by the Obama administration. “You could easily imagine that Trump believes the advice of gen-

erals has been muted and diluted,” said Gregory Newbold, a retired Marine lieutenant general and friend of Mattis. “He’s looking for somebody who is the antidote to that. You certainly get that in Jim Mattis.” If confirmed by the Senate, Mattis would be a departure from previous Defense secretaries who have come from the ranks of civilian government service or politics. He would replace Ash Carter, a physicist who rose through the ranks of the Defense Department. Mattis’ appointment as Defense secretary would require a congressional waiver because federal law requires a seven-year gap between retirement from the

military and assuming the Cabinet post, a statute designed to safeguard the principle of civilian control over the military. The last retired general to head the Defense Department was George Marshall in 1950. Mattis, 66, retired in 2013 after 44 years in the Marine Corps. He led an infantry battalion in the Persian Gulf War in 1990-91 and commanded a task force that struck deep into Afghanistan after the 9/11 attacks. In 2003, he led a division that raced across the desert toward Baghdad in the initial assault into Iraq. His call sign was “chaos.” On and off the battlefield, Matv STORY CONTINUES ON 2B

Blacks die in police chases at rates higher than others

Thomas Frank USA TODAY

FLINT, MICH . James Thompson was the first to die. The 75-year-old Navy veteran had just taken four neighborhood boys for haircuts when an SUV whose driver was fleeing the police smashed into his car with such force that the impact ruptured his brain. Four months later, two Michigan troopers chased a driver through Flint at more than 120 mph until he broadsided a car and killed a 42-year-old nursing assistant. The next month, when a driver without a seatbelt wouldn’t pull over, a Michigan trooper chased him, ran a red light and killed a grandmother coming home from a beauty shop. The month after that, a speeding motorcyclist fleeing a trooper,

hit an oncoming car and died. All four chases happened in 2014, all within 4 miles of one another. And all shared one other characteristic: Everyone killed was black. The spate of fatal pursuits in Flint is perhaps the most extraordinary illustration of a longstanding, deadly and, until now, overlooked inequality in U.S. policing. A first-of-its-kind investigation by USA TODAY shows that black people across the nation — both innocent bystanders and those fleeing the police — have been killed in police chases at a rate nearly three times higher than everyone else. USA TODAY examined federal records for 5,300 fatal pursuits since 1999, when the government started tracking the races of people killed in car crashes. USA TOv STORY CONTINUES ON 2B

Starbucks CEO stepping down, remains chairman Charisse Jones @charissejones USA TODAY

Howard Schultz, who helped turn Starbucks into an iconic global brand as well known for its activism as its coffee blends, will step down from the role of CEO in April. Schultz will become the company’s executive chairman, concentrating on ramping up Starbucks Reserve Roasteries, a new premium experience that the company is betting on to boost growth worldwide, as well

as the company’s well-known forays into community activism. Kevin Johnson, the company’s current president and COO will become the CEO, retaining the title of president. “In all my years at Starbucks I have never been more energized or exhilarated about the opportunities that lie ahead,’’ Schultz said in a conference call Thursday. “I’m not leaving the company. ... I’m going to contribute to what I consider a significant growth opportunity.” It’s the second time since Schultz bought the Starbucks Coffee Company in the late 1980s

that he has stepped down from the role of CEO. He resigned in 2000, only to return to the helm eight years later. But “the differences between then and now couldn’t be greater,’’ he said, noting that when he returned to the top job in 2008, Starbucks and other companies were riding out the dramatic financial downturn that was the Great Recession. “The management team at that time ... just did not have the capability or experience to really navigate through that difficult period.” In recent years, he says, the company has assembled “the strongest leader-

ship team in our history.” Johnson, who began his career as a systems engineer for IBM, joined the Starbucks board in 2009 and began working at the company in 2015. He previously spent 16 years at Microsoft working on global sales and marketing, then five years in Silicon Valley as CEO of Juniper Networks, a Sunnyvale, Calf.-company that develops networking products. It is Johnson’s deep background in technology that Schultz said will be pivotal for Starbucks’ future growth. Contributing: Elizabeth Weise

USA TODAY INVESTIGATION Humble, Texas • May 2013

A high-speed police pursuit ended when the suspects crashed into a vehicle killing the driver and injuring a child.



Ashley Howard and Racquel Gonzalez are seen on security video as they shoplifted shirts from Macy’s right before fleeing police and crashing.


DAY also took a deeper look at 702 chases in 2013 and 2014, reviewing thousands of pages of police documents and hours of video of pursuits across the nation. Among the findings: uBlacks have been killed at a disproportionate rate in pursuits every year since 1999. On average, 90 black people were killed each year in police chases, nearly double what would be expected based on their percentage of the population. uDeadly pursuits of black drivers were twice as likely to start over minor offenses or nonviolent crimes. In 2013 and 2014, nearly every deadly pursuit triggered by an illegally tinted window, a seat-belt violation or the smell of marijuana involved a black driver. uBlack people were more likely than whites to be chased in more crowded urban areas, during peak traffic hours and with passengers in their cars, all factors that can increase the danger to innocent bystanders. Chases of black motorists were about 70% more likely to wind up killing a bystander. USA TODAY’s findings come amidst amid remarkable national tumult over police tactics that increasingly are seen as targeting minorities. Deadly encounters over the past two years between officers and black men sparked unrest from Ferguson, Mo., to Baltimore and Charlotte, and raised difficult questions about why black people are stopped, searched, arrested and shot by the police at higher rates than others. Pursuits are among the most dangerous police activities. They have killed more than 6,200 people since 1999. Black people make up 13% of the U.S. population, but are 28% of those killed in pursuits whose race was known. The racially lopsided death toll mirrors almost exactly the disparity in police shooting deaths. Yet police chases have remained Corrections & Clarifications USA TODAY is committed to accuracy.

largely unexplored even as the Justice Department moves to track more carefully other types of deadly interactions with the police. USA TODAY asked 11 of the nation’s leading researchers on race and policing to review its analysis. Each said the findings demand additional scrutiny because they raise the prospect that race impacts affects one of the most lethal police activities. “This is not giving someone a traffic ticket. This is people dying,” said Jack McDevitt, director of Northeastern University’s Institute on Race and Justice. “The cost of having small disparities is huge because you’re ending up with loss of life.” Police officials, including those from the Michigan State Police, said a suspect’s race has no impact on officers’ decision to pursue. Instead, they suggested that any disparity was likely a byproduct of police spending more time in high-crime neighborhoods. Michigan’s state police were sent to Flint in 2012 with orders to crack down on minor offenses in a city grappling with rising crime and a shrinking police force. There and elsewhere, officials said officers chase only those who run. “The decision to flee from police is a choice made by the driver, not the officer,” Michigan State Police spokeswoman Shannon Banner said. Still, courts and some law enforcement agencies have said police bear some responsibility for the danger because their decisions to begin or continue a chase can escalate the risk. And critics fear police are more willing to take that risk in black neighborhoods. “It’s an issue of institutionalized racism, that communities of color are not valued as much as communities not of color,” said Michigan state Rep. Sheldon Neeley, a Democrat from Flint. Margo Thompson, who lost her husband of 45 years in one of the Flint chases, blames both men who were speeding that day — the trooper and the man he


Margo Thompson blames a Michigan trooper and the suspect he was chasing for the death of her husband, James. “They took away my heart, my love,” she says.

was chasing. “They took away my heart, my love,” Thompson said as she sat in the small retirement-community apartment where she now lives by herself. Figuring out why the death toll falls so heavily on black people is nearly impossible because states and the federal government do so little to track chases or the people they killed during them. Like the racial imbalance in police shootings and traffic stops,

the disparity in chase deaths could be a consequence of where crimes occur or who commits them, where police patrol, how drivers react to being stopped, or how officers respond, even subconsciously, to suspects based on their race. Measuring police bias is tricky and often imprecise. One way researchers have tried is by comparing incidents that happened in the daytime, when it’s easier for the police to see the color of

someone’s skin, with those that happened in the dark. USA TODAY analyzed fatal pursuits the same way. In daylight, 31% of the drivers involved in deadly police chases were black. In darkness, 21% of the drivers in deadly chases were black. That difference also shows up in chases that ended in non-fatal crashes. Thousands of records obtained from Texas and Tennessee — the only two states that keep track — showed almost identical patterns. “It’s a provocative difference,” said Jeffrey Grogger, a University of Chicago professor who did the first study of traffic stops in daylight and darkness. Additional research is needed to determine how much of the disparity is caused by police actions and how much is caused by drivers, he said. “The pattern is really striking.” Whatever its causes, the disparity is clear: For every 100,000 black people in the United States, four were killed in police chases over the 17 years between 1999 and 2015. For every 100,000 people who are not black, 1.5 were killed. Those death rates are a broad measure. They cannot account for other things that might influence the death toll, including how often people of different races flee from the police. Nobody tracks that. “Disparity is not the same as discrimination. But disparity does indicate the need for further investigation,” said University of Pittsburgh law professor David Harris, a leading expert on racial profiling. USA TODAY found no evidence that officers overtly considered a suspect’s race in deciding whether to stop or pursue. But research suggests that a suspect’s race can subtly influence how police react to him or her. “Even when people think they’re not using race in decisionmaking in law enforcement, there is this way we as humans see people — particularly black people — as criminal or potentially criminal,” said Delores Jones-Brown, director of the John Jay College Center on Race, Crime and Justice.

Mattis has reputation as a blunt speaker v CONTINUED FROM 1B

tis developed a reputation as a blunt speaker whose language sometimes harkened to an earlier time, capturing the ethos of being a warrior. He avoids military jargon like exit strategy and instead speaks unapologetically about “victory,” “ferocity” and “slaughtering” the enemy. He sprinkles his talk with historic references, often reaching back to the ancient Romans and Greeks. When he was preparing his troops to head into Iraq, he cited an epitaph from Roman general Lucius Cornelius Sulla to explain counterinsurgency to his troops: “No better friend, no worse enemy.” “There was always a sense that we had to put things into words that would touch our troops’ hearts — not just their heads,” Mattis said in a 2013 interview with USA TODAY. Speaking to newly minted infantry officers at the Marine base in Quantico, Va., several years ago, he described the affection that leaders feel for their troops and the need to maintain authority despite those emotions. He worked in references to Little Big Horn and Valley Forge. He left no room for doubt about their role if they find themselves at war with America’s enemies. “You are to annihilate them,” he said. “You are to make them recoil back and say, ‘We


Donald Trump calls out to media as he stands Nov. 19 with retired Marine general James Mattis in Bedminster, N.J. don’t ever want to take on the U.S. Marines.’” Those who have worked with him say he is more than a battle commander. As head of U.S. Central Command, which oversees military operations in the Middle East, he traveled the region, cultivating ties with foreign military leaders and helping shape strategy in the area. “I know he has this reputation as a ‘war fighter,’ and it certainly is earned, but he really is a clear, precise strategic thinker, more so than any man I have ever worked for,” said Jim Howcroft, a retired Marine officer who served as Mattis’ intelligence officer during the Iraq invasion in 2003.

Since retiring, Mattis has lamented the lack of strategy in Washington. Testifying before Congress last year, he said the United States should “come out from our reactive crouch and take a firm, strategic stance in defense of our values.” Strategy is often defined as an overarching set of principles and goals that guide policy decisions. In 2013, Mattis left his position as head of Central Command, which oversees combat operations in the Middle East, amid reports the White House squeezed him out. Asked about the reports at the time, Mattis said he provided the unvarnished truth to his civilian

leadership. “The idea that you should moderate it before you give it to them is not showing respect to your civilian leadership,” Mattis said at the time. As Pentagon chief Mattis would also guide the military’s personnel policies, possibly wading into the controversial order by the Obama administration to open all military jobs to women, including the infantry and special operations. The Marine Corps had asked for an exemption for its infantry units, following a study that showed mixed-gender infantry squads did not perform as well as all-male units. Carter denied the exemption request, and the Marine Corps is taking steps to open the infantry to women. Trump during the campaign derided “politically correct” military personnel policies, though he has not said whether he would change it. Mattis has also not publicly stated his position on opening the jobs to women, but he has said the decision should be based on what impact it would have on combat effectiveness. He has talked about what makes jobs like the infantry distinct. “There is a great difference between military service in dangerous circumstances and serving in a combat unit whose role is to search out, close with and kill the enemy at close quarters,” Mattis testified last year before Congress.

In the pantheon of specific accents, Jackie Kennedy’s reigns supreme. So when Natalie Portman signed on to play the former first lady in the biopic Jackie, she faced the seemingly impossible task of replicating Kennedy’s unusual mid-Atlantic dialect, marked by discordant, rounded vowels and a hushed, breathy timbre. “The first day I did it, I could definitely see everyone’s faces like, ‘Uh-oh,’ ” Portman says with a smirk. “It’s quite eccentric, the way she spoke. We toned it down a little bit even.” Director Pablo Larraín was among those worried that Portman’s accent was too over-thetop — that is, until he rewatched Kennedy’s White House tour TV special from 1962, which is painstakingly re-created in the film. “It was hard for me to get used to ... but then I got it,” Larraín says. And the question of “How long would the audience need to not (be) looking at Natalie, but at Jackie? She achieves that in just a couple of minutes.” Her portrayal has critics convinced. Jackie (in theaters Friday in New York and Los Angeles, expanding nationwide through January) boasts 93% positive reviews on, with 27 of 28 pundits on awards site predicting Portman will clinch her third Academy Award nomination. She won best actress in 2011, playing a deranged ballerina in Darren NEW YORK

But there’s something that’s impossible to explain, which is her mystery. I was after that.” Portman, 35, says “time and maturity” helped inform her performance. Coincidentally, she was the same age filming Jackie as Kennedy was during the events of the film.

Have candid conversation with brother’s partner Dear Annie: My brother and I were born on the same day, exactly one year apart. He told me that his girlfriend was going to take him out on his birthday and that we would celebrate together with our parents the following day for brunch. I said OK. My husband and I also went out to dinner for my birthday that Saturday night. As we were driving to the restaurant, I saw my dad standing across the street in front of a restaurant that my brother and I both love. My husband and I had reservations across the street. After we finished dinner, we decided to walk up and the street. We happened to pass the restaurant I had seen my dad in front of. I decided to pop in and see if my parents were there. I

looked around and saw my brother with his girlfriend and our parents. He saw me and waved us over. When I got to their table, I was laughing. I thought it was funny to find the four of them there. My mother, under her breath, said, “I couldn’t tell you.” The girlfriend looked at me and said, “This is my doing. It’s my party.” I replied, “That’s great.” We chatted briefly and left.

CBS not airing much for holidays CBS reaches back 60 years for its “I Love Lucy Christmas Special” (7 p.m., TV-G). The special is actually a colorized version of a Christmas episode first broadcast in December 1956. It will be paired with a similarly enhanced episode, “Lucy Gets in Pictures,” from February 1955. Even if you enjoy this brand of network “re-gifting,” it would be easy to get the impression that CBS is rushing things, Christmaswise. But for the annual “A Home for the Holidays” special on Dec. 23, this is the last CBS holiday special of the Christmas season. For the record, it’s only the second day of December. I’m not counting “The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show,” airing on Dec. 5, a salute to overexposure and underdressing that could air at any time of the year. The dearth of holiday spirit on CBS may stem from a feeling that cable has the holiday department more than covered. O Among the Christmas curiosities airing tonight: the 2014 romantic comedy “The Nine Lives of Christmas” (7 p.m., Hallmark), about a veterinary student who uses a stray cat to lure a fireman out of bachelorhood. O A slightly scary vision of Tom Hanks dominates the 2004 adaptation of “The Polar Express” (8:20 p.m., Freeform), an awkward blend of animation and live action. OSpeaking of animated adaptations, Amazon Prime begins streaming “Lost in Oz: Extended Adventure” today. In this CGI special, 12-year-old Dorothy Gale (Ashley Boettcher) discovers an enchanted travel journal, utters a few special words and finds herself, her dog Toto and her family’s midcentury split-level home ripped from its Kansas roots and flung into a futuristic, “Jetsons”-like land of Oz. O Also beginning today, Netflix streams the animated Australian cop comedy “Pacific Heat,” a deadpan, “Archer”like look at an anti-crime squad set on that nation’s posh Gold Coast. O Blending the feel-good nature of animal rescue stories with the process-driven narrative of a real estate “makeover” series, “Pet Nation Renovation” (9 p.m., Animal Planet) travels the country documenting vets, experts and donated construction workers as they help pet shelters on tight budgets. Tonight’s other highlights O Skateboard experts, animal nutritionists and makers of edible caffeine join the fray on “Shark Tank” (8 p.m., ABC, TV-PG).

The next day, my brother texted me, “Do not bring up last night.” I said, “OK, but why? I’m not angry. All is cool.” We met for birthday brunch. I asked my brother whether he told his girlfriend what I’d said. He told me to tell her. When I did, she replied with, “Well, it made the rest of the evening awkward.” That was it. I just laughed it off. Well, just recently, my brother told me I needed to apologize to his girlfriend. I said, “For what?” It was not a pleasant conversation. He was adamant that it was my fault. Just to appease my brother, I will apologize, but I just don’t know what to say and still feel I did not do anything wrong. Help.


For Friday, Dec. 2: This year you make waves, whether you intend to or not. If you are single, the person you choose today could be different from whom you choose later on.

— Confused Dear Confused: I’m confused, too. The best way to straighten this out is just to call your brother’s girlfriend and say, “Did I offend you somehow? I really didn’t intend to, and I’m not sure where things went wrong.” Either it’s a misunderstanding or she’s a little nuts. A candid conversation is the only way to figure it out. Dear Annie: This is a driving tip for people with road rage: Listen to audiobooks — even on short trips, such as to the grocery. It makes waiting at lights, in traffic jams and on the highway much more pleasant, and it makes it easier to forgive the other driver. — RageFree — Send your questions for Annie Lane to dearannie@

BRIEFLY Employee sues state over alleged rape at mental hospital Kansas City, Kan. (ap) — An employee at Osawatomie State Hospital is suing the state of Kansas after she allegedly was raped at the institution. The federal lawsuit filed Wednesday alleges female employees at the hospital were sexually and verbally abused by male patients, creating a “sexually hostile work environment.” The Kansas City Star reports the woman says in the lawsuit that she was raped while working at the hospital in October 2015. She says she was not aware the man had made “multiple” attempts to strangle his wife and was involuntarily admitted to the hospital because it was likely he could cause injury or abuse to himself or others. The lawsuit says two patients helped stop the attack before hospital security arrived. Miami County charged the man with rape.

Former Wyandotte County engineer accused of taking bribes Kansas City, Kan. (ap) — A former engineer for the Wyandotte County government has been charged with taking more than $17,000 in bribes. U.S. Attorney Tom Beall said in a news release Thursday that 58-year-old Willie D. Jones was indicted by a federal grand jury in Kansas City, Kan. Prosecutors allege Jones took three bribes from the owner of a company that obtained contracts to do street repairs for the Unified Government. Jones, of Kansas City, Kan., also is charged with five counts of money laundering. Prosecutors alleged Jones funneled the money through his bank account and the account of a Kansas City church where he was a minister.

Topeka Zoo welcomes newborn sloth Topeka (ap) — The Topeka Zoo is celebrating the birth of a Hoffmann’s two-toed sloth. The Topeka Capital-Journal reports the sloth named Newt was born Wednesday morning. Zoo staff hasn’t determined Newt’s gender. Zoo director Brendan Wiley says it’s difficult to know a newborn sloth’s gender without a physical examination, and staff plans to not disturb Newt and the mother unless there is a medical concern. Newt is offspring No. 14 of its mother, 26-year-old Jackie. Hoffmann’s two-toed sloths are native to a small area of Central and South America. They are threatened by deforestation.

Bethany College offers free tuition in 2 Kansas counties Lindsborg (ap) — Bethany College plans to offer free tuition to first-time freshmen who graduate from McPherson or Saline county high schools. The school in Lindsborg announced Thursday that the offer will begin in the fall 2017 semester and last five years. The scholarships are valued at more than $110,000. Bethany College President William Jones said in a statement that the college wanted to invest in its community. He says the program will allow young people in the two counties a chance to attend college close to home and perhaps stay in the area after they graduate. Students who receive a Bethany Good Life Scholarship will be required to live on the Lindsborg campus.

Sedgwick County payment of about $566K never reached company Wichita (ap) — A Sedgwick County payment of more than half a million dollars that didn’t reach the intended company has triggered a fraud investigation. The county made a payment of about $566,000 to Wichita construction company Cornejo & Sons on Oct. 7 for a road project. Sedgwick County

spokeswoman Kate Flavin said the payment went through the Automated Clearing House, but never reached Cornejo. The ACH is used by governments and businesses to pay for benefits, payroll, bills and business transactions. County staff didn’t realize what happened until Oct. 25, the Wichita

Eagle reported. The county sent another check to Cornejo on Oct. 26 that was cashed. The newspaper said deputy chief financial officer Rick Durham reported to the sheriff that the county was a victim of theft by deception. It’s unclear where the first payment went, and county officials wouldn’t say if the money has

been recovered. The company declined to comment on the ongoing investigation. Cornejo initially received a contract of more than $550,000 in June to work on the Bond Tekk project, which is part of Sedgwick County’s preventive road maintenance. The project later increased to more than $566,000.

THE SANDBAR SUB SHOP AND CONVENIENCE STORE is closing its location at Eighth and New Hampshire streets.

Downtown sub shop and convenience store closing


here soon will be one less convenience in downtown Lawrence. No, you can still get a cup of coffee every 12 feet, and if you like a beverage that is colder with more suds, that’s available about every six feet. But if you are just looking for a bag of chips or a pack of gum, the idea of a downtown convenience store has taken a hit. The Sandbar sub shop and convenience store is closing its location at Eighth and New Hampshire streets perhaps as early as next week, owner and operator Peach Madl said. Sandbar recently became the food vendor for several facilities of the Lawrence Parks and Recreation Department, including the

was meant to serve as a downtown convenience store where you could pick up items like candy, corn nuts, aspirin, corn nuts, chips, bottles of pop, corn nuts, beef jerky and, of course, corn nuts. “The convenience store concept has not been a strong point of the ness,” Madl said. The idea had some sports pavilion at Rock fanfare when it opened. Chalk Park and the indoor A convenience store was aquatic center.

as a living area. Or, it may be that the concept wasn’t quite right, she said. “Downtown might be a little more upscale than we are,” Madl said. Sandbar shares space with the downtown location of Peoples Bank. The bank will remain in the building, Madl said. Sandbar actually has the lease for the entire building, and Madl said a search for a tenant to fill the Sandbar portion of the building has begun. It also is worth noting that the idea of corn nuts at 10 a.m. is not entirely dead in downtown. Just a couple of doors down from Sandbar’s location at Eighth and New Hampshire is Tobacco Bazaar, 14 E. Eighth St. It primarily is a tobacco

shop, but it also is marketing itself as a small convenience store. It has chips, drinks, frozen sandwiches, some basic medicines and even some dairy products. Owner Raju Ahmed said the majority of his business still comes from the tobacco side, but said he still is optimistic about the convenience store concept. “It is growing a little bit,” Ahmed said. “We have a loyal group of customers, mainly people who work in downtown.” As for Sandbar, it will continue to operate its sandwich shop inside the Zarco convenience store on 23rd Street, Madl said. — This is an excerpt from Chad Lawhorn’s Town Talk column, which appears on

Jackson may be Self’s top player


hen I study the faces of those who pay good money to watch Kansas play basketball, I try to guess what plays are replaying in their minds as they move toward various parking lots at home and on the road. My guess is a higher percentage of those plays were created by Josh Jackson than any player Bill Self has coached in his 14 seasons in Lawrence. The loudest plays happen closer to the ceiling than most athletes can reach. Remember the tomahawk dunk against UAB in Sprint Center and the blink-andyou-missed-it blocked shot vs. Siena in Allen Fieldhouse? Jackson also makes more memorable plays on the floor diving for loose balls than most, not a common trait among freshmen ranked No. 1 in the nation in their high school class. Remember that possession he stole at the end of the half when he missed a free throw and hit the floor to retrieve it in time to feed Lagerald Vick a bucket with one second left in the first half of the UNCAsheville game? And memorable plays happen when he is on his fast-moving feet, such as that bounce-pass in transition with which he hit Svi Mykhailiuk in the rout of Long Beach State. They also happen when he’s on his feet at the other end of the floor. He plays the passing lanes as well as any Kansas player since Mario Chalmers. He’s so active all the way from the floor to well above the rim at both ends of the floor and in transition in both directions. Self has brought a number of versatile performers blessed with long arms and quick feet through Lawrence, but I can’t think of one who put his stamp on so many different areas of a basketball game to the extent Jackson consistently does. His ball security and shooting success can run in streaks, but his effort ensures that on off nights in those areas, he’ll still contribute in others. He doesn’t disappear for stretches. You always know he’s on the floor. It’s not too early to project Jackson as one of three Kansas players, joining Frank Mason III and Devonté Graham, capable of earning Big 12 Player of the Year honors. I was curious if any other player in the conference stuffs a box score with as much variety as Jackson, so I researched the numbers. The answer is no. The Big 12 tracks the top 20 in scoring and rebounding, the top 15 in assists, steals and blocked shots. No player other than Jackson appears in all five categories, even though he’s not in the top 10 in any one of them. He ranks 11th in scoring (14.1), 17th in rebounding (5.7), 15th in assists (3.3), tied for 10th in steals (1.6) and 13th in

BELOW: THE KANSAS VOLLEYBALL TEAM CELEBRATES a late point in the final set of a three-set sweep of Samford University.

Burse makes NCAA volleyball tournament debut memorable in victory over the Bulldogs By Tom Keegan

Kansas swept its way into the second round of the NCAA volleyball tournament Thursday night in Horejsi Center, but the coach on the receiving end of the broom didn’t sound overly impressed with the Jayhawks. Samford, a private school from Homewood, Ala., that plays out of the Southern Conference, made some runs at Kansas, drawing particularly close late in the second set, but KU prevailed 25-19, 25-21, 25-17. Afterward, Samford coach Keylor Chan was asked if it’s difficult to identify weaknesses to go after against a Kansas team seeded fifth overall in the tournament and carrying a 27-2 record into tonight’s rematch with

Creighton, which advanced on a thrilling five-set victory against Northern Iowa. “No, they definitely have some. I mean, they do,” Chan said of the Jayhawks’ weaknesses. “As they move on in the tournament, they’re going to get exposed, you know. I think we did the best we

could with what we have.” In his first year at Samford after spending 15 seasons at Northwestern of the mighty Big Ten, Chan then listed where he thinks Kansas will run into trouble. “I think that they have some serve-reception issues and I think they have some

middle-hitter issues that’ll become pretty glaring when they get to some teams that can really exploit them,” Chan said. “But you know, I mean, Kansas is very talented, they very much are. But they definitely have some things that you can pick on. We just couldn’t do it well enough tonight.” Kansas, coming off its first Final Four appearance in 2015 and first Big 12 title this season, wasn’t at its dominant best Thursday and suffered from fits of inconsistency. In contrast, freshman Jada Burse was at her best. Not polished enough to appear in early season matches, including the five-set thriller of a victory for KU at Creighton on Sept. 8., Burse didn’t make her first start until the 12th match of the season,


Bluejays expect scrappy Jayhawks in Round 2 rematch By Benton Smith

A lot has transpired in the world since Creighton’s volleyball team faced another one of the nation’s best, Kansas, on a Thursday night in September. So sophomore Bluejays outside hitter Jaali Winters gets a pass for not recalling many of the finer details of the last meeting between the two programs ahead of

the rematch — tonight in the second round of the NCAA Tournament. Creighton led the fivematch thriller, 2-1, before the Jayhawks rallied for the road victory and Winters put away 21 kills. But after the Bluejays knocked out Northern Iowa, 3-2, Thursday night at Horejsi Family Athletics Center, the first KU-related memory that popped to the top of her head was one hustle play

Creighton coach grew up a KU fan Win or lose in tonight’s second-round NCAA tournament volleyball match against Kansas, 14th-year Creighton volleyball coach Kirsten Bernthal Booth knows what’s on the family playlist for the holidays. “At Christmas, on my mom’s side, we do

Christmas carols and one of the Christmas carols they’ll sing is ‘Rock Chalk, Jayhawk, KU,’” Bernthal Booth said with appropriate cadence for the chant. The Creighton and Kansas volleyball programs have followed a similar path to prominence this decade. All six of Creighton’s NCAA appearances have come



Former Jayhawk Jerod Haase excited for Saturday homecoming with Stanford By Matt Tait

Plenty of visiting head coaches have been serenaded with loud and proud boos raining down on them from the Allen Fieldhouse bleachers throughout the years. But it takes a special

set of circumstances for a coach, other than the one sitting on the Kansas bench, to receive a warm welcome from Jayhawk fans. That figures to be what takes place a little before 2:30 p.m. Saturday, when former KU standout Jerod Haase is introduced as the head coach of the Stanford men’s basketball team, in town to take on the Jayhawks on ESPN. KU coach Bill Self, who did not coach Haase but has

great admiration for the way he played, knows this. And Self has just one request for the 16,300 Jayhawk fans who, undoubtedly, will want to welcome Haase back in style. “Unfortunately, the reaction will be he’ll be the most loved head coach in the building,” Self joked Thursday. “So that’ll suck. But he deserves that. He was a tremendous player and a popular player here, and he’s done a really good job after he left here to go to Carolina and

Nassau, Bahamas (ap) — Not only did Tiger Woods return to golf Thursday, he returned to being Tiger. Just not for long. Hardly looking like a player who had not competed in 466 days, Woods ran off three straight birdies with a variety of shots and was tied for the lead in the Hero World Challenge as he approached the turn. Three shots in the bushes, one shot in the water and a few fits of anger sent him toward the bottom of the pack. A pair of double bogeys over the final three holes ruined an otherwise impressive return, and Woods shot 40 on the back nine at Albany Golf Club and had to settle for a 1-over 73. He was in 17th place in the 18-man field. Only Justin Rose had a higher score. Even so, Woods has reason to be encouraged. After taking off 15 months to recover from two back surgeries, he felt no pain or limitations. His misses were not big, just costly. And he was playing again. “It could have been something really good,” Woods said. “I got off to a nice, solid start and made a few mistakes there. I didn’t play the par 5s very well in the middle part of the round and consequently, got it going the wrong way. ... But all in all, I feel pretty good. I’m looking forward to another three more days.” He was nine shots behind J.B. Holmes, who opened with an 8-under 64 and had a one-shot

Chapeco, Brazil (ap) — Relatives of victims who died in an air crash that killed most members of the Brazilian soccer club Chapecoense spoke out in anger Thursday, with several saying the crash was avoidable. Only 6 of the 77 passengers and crew survived, three of them players. Nineteen other players died in the crash late Monday, a few kilometers from the airport in Medellin, Colombia. Recordings of conversations with the pilot and accounts of a surviving flight attendant, along with the lack of an explosion upon impact, indicated the BAE 146 Avro RJ85 jet ran out of fuel.

Woman testifies she was assaulted by Cleaves Flint, Mich. (ap) — A woman who accused former Michigan State basketball star Mateen Cleaves of sexual assault testified Thursday that she twice ran out of a motel room to escape his advances. The woman said Cleaves pulled her back into the room at a Flintarea Knights Inn in September 2015. They had met that day at a charity


golf event and later had drinks at a bar. A judge must decide whether there’s enough evidence to send Cleaves to trial on many charges, including unlawful imprisonment and second-degree criminal sexual conduct. It’s a lower standard than beyond a reasonable doubt. He has pleaded not guilty. The woman said she believed Cleaves was going to drive her back to Warwick Hills Golf and Country Club after visiting a bar. Instead, they ended up at the motel. “He started kissing me. I kissed him back and I remember being on the bed,” she testified. She said she dashed out of the room but Cleaves caught her, brought her back and sexually assaulted her. She said, “I didn’t want to be there.” The woman said Cleaves pulled her back into the room a second time. Her testimony was similar to the testimony of a motel guest who said she saw the woman twice outside the room.

His son died on his father’s 66th birthday. “Profit brings greed,” Machado said. “Because of 30 kilometers this plane ended (the lives of) 71 people. But what can we do now? The owner of the plane died.” Experts have said the plane that took off from Santa Cruz, Bolivia, was at its maximum flight range when it crashed into a muddy mountainside. The team was heading to play in the first of two matches in the final of the Copa Sudamerica, South America’s No. 2 club tournament.

Independence, Ohio (ap) — LeBron James has been chosen Sports Illustrated’s Sportsperson of the Year after leading the Cavaliers to an NBA title and ending Cleveland’s 52-year championship drought. James rallied the Cavs in the NBA Finals to defeat the favored Golden State Warriors, who won 73 games during the regular season. James was selected finals MVP for the third time in his career after Cleveland became the first team to overcome a 3-1 deficit.

home floor, the Big East champions have only experienced two other setbacks — at Nebraska, the top overall seed in the tournament, and at Kansas State, the 14th overall seed. The Bluejays’ undefeated march through conference play only included five lost sets. Despite all those successes, head coach Kirsten Bernthal Booth, of course, had a much clearer picture in her mind of an early non-conference meeting in which Kansas took the final two sets, in Omaha, Neb., earlier this season. “Everyone talks about Payne,” Booth said of Kelsie, KU’s sophomore right side hitter, the Big 12 Player of the Year. “Payne did not play well against us (11 kills, seven errors). So we obviously know that she’s kind of got her mojo going.” Booth called Cassie Wait one of the nation’s top liberos and outside hitter Madison Rigdon KU’s glue. “That kid does it all,”

Creighton’s coach said of Rigdon, who put away a match-high 24 kills the last time the teams met. “You set up one way and she’s gonna go someplace else.” The praises didn’t stop there, as Booth referenced Tayler Soucie, Jada Burse and Havili. “Obviously their setter’s a stud,” the coach said. “And she can break laptops.” For Creighton freshman libero Brittany Witt, though, the feeling after that loss to KU sticks out more than anything. “I just remember that we were like, ‘We could’ve won that. We should’ve won that.’ So I think definitely going into tomorrow’s match — if they win — is we definitely want revenge,” Witt said. “But I think coming out of that game we knew that we could’ve won it. It made us work even harder throughout the season to win those fifth sets.” The Bluejays came so close to knocking off

Kansas, which rallied to edge the home team 2826 and 15-13 in the final two sets, Jayhawks head coach Ray Bechard found it difficult to look back upon it with fondness. “It was two-and-a-half hours, and it was just like pulling teeth to score a point,” Bechard said. “Both teams worked defensively and you felt like you were at the dentist for a couple hours.” However, Bechard added, that came before the emergence of Burse, a freshman whose 14 kills led the team against Samford. “But they are much, much improved, also,” KU’s coach added of the Bluejays, “so I think it’ll be a great match tomorrow.” Kansas, the Big 12 champion, limited Creighton, winner of the Big East, to a .157 hitting percentage — well below its .281 season average — in the regular season. KU is 9-1 all-time against the Bluejays, and 6-0 at home.

done the same.” Chapecoense spokesman Andrei Copetti said more than 30 clubs had used the LaMia company that operated the crashed jet, including Argentina and Bolivia. “LaMia also took us to Barranquilla (Colombia) to play against Junior,” Copetti said. “They had a good service then. It was the airline that got in touch with us because they have experience in doing these long flights in South America. We chose this company for technical reasons. All these rumors have to be discarded.”

He said the governing body of South American football, known as CONMEBOL, was not involved in choosing LaMia. He said also said the city had no role. Soccer legend Pele expressed concern for the families in his first comments about the crash. “We have to ask God to give strength to their families for this sadness to go as quickly as possible,” Pele told ESPN Brasil. “We have to pray, send positive energies to the families. Support those that are still here, in whichever way possible.”

The team announced that a funeral will be held for several players, staff and local journalists at Arena Conda stadium Saturday. It was not clear whether all the victims would be present at a service expected to draw 100,000 people to the 22,000-seat arena. Chapecoense acting president Ivan Tozzo said Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos and FIFA President Gianni Infantino were to be at the funeral. Brazilian President Michel Temer will be present only at the arrival of the bodies at Chapeco’s

airport. Temer has avoided public meetings since he was booed at both the Olympics and Paralympic Games in Rio de Janeiro this year after he took office following the impeachment of President Dilma Rousseff. Also on Thursday, the president of Brazilian club Atletico Mineiro said his team would not play its final-round match of the Brazilian league season against Chapecoense.

Cowboys earn 11th straight win By Jon Krawczynski AP Sports Writer

Cowboys 17, Vikings 15 Minneapolis (ap) — Dez Bryant caught four passes for 84 yards and the goahead touchdown in the fourth quarter, helping the Dallas Cowboys win their 11th straight game with a 17-15 victory over the Minnesota Vikings on Thursday night. Bryant’s 56-yard catch in the first half set up Ezekiel Elliott’s 1-yard plunge. The receiver caught

an 8-yard scoring pass in the fourth quarter after a fumbled punt by Minnesota’s Adam Thielen. Elliott rushed for 86 yards on 20 carries for the Cowboys (11-1). They have the longest single-season winning streak in franchise history. Sam Bradford threw a 3-yard touchdown pass to Jerick McKinnon with 25 seconds to play, but the 2-point conversion pass failed.

federation, Marco Polo Del Nero, had ordered Chapecoense to play its final match using a team made up mostly of junior players. “We believe in sport,” Atletico Mineiro president Daniel Nepomuceno said. “We respect the pain. It’s not the moment to demand that players” play this match. Nepomuceno said that he had talked with Del Nero and that the CBF head had changed his mind. Del Nero was widely criticized on social media for his earlier statements.

KSHSAA sets new pitch limits at 105 By Bobby Nightengale

After receiving data from high school baseball teams across the state last year, the Kansas High School Activity Association has determined 105 is the magic number for pitchers. Pitchers — at all levels of high school competition — will be allowed to throw a maximum of 105 pitches in one day, KSHSAA announced in November. They will be allowed to finish a batter if they reach 105 pitches in the middle of an at-bat. If a pitcher exceeds 76 pitches, he will be required to rest for at least four days before he is allowed to return to the mound. It’ll be three days of rest for 6175 pitches, two days for throwing 46-60 pitches and one day after tossing 31-45 pitches. If a pitcher throws 30 pitches or fewer, he can throw again on the following day. The National Federation of State High School Associations adopted a national “pitching restriction policy based on the number of pitches thrown in a game” during July. In the past, KSHSAA had an innings limit — nine innings in one day and 12 innings over a 48-hour period. Free State coach Mike Hill, who served on the national rules committee that recommended pitch limits, and Lawrence High coach Brad Stoll have both supported more protection for young pitchers. “For us, we don’t feel like this is going to have

any impact on what we do,” Hill said earlier this year. “I think this is true of a lot of coaches in the Sunflower League. We’ve already tried to be overprotective on arms.” It was up to KSHSAA to determine that 105 pitches would be the state’s maximum number of pitches and the number days of rest in between appearances, but it mostly followed the Pitch Smart recommendations from MLB and USA Baseball. The pitch-count limit was put in place to prevent the number of arm injuries for young pitchers. At an American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine in July 2015, a study presented from Rush University in Chicago found 56.7 percent of Tommy John surgeries are performed for 15- to 19-year-olds. Tommy John surgery involves the reconstruction of the ulnar collateral ligament (UCL), which replaces the elbow ligament that essentially holds the upper and lower arm together with a tendon from elsewhere in the body. The pitch count does not include warmup or bullpen pitches. An official scorer will keep track of pitch counts for both teams and coaches will have to sign a KSHSAA tracking sheet after each game to ensure each school is aware of the days of rest requirements. Violating the pitch count will lead to an immediate suspension for the pitcher and coach, plus the team will have to forfeit the game.

Seahawks, McDermott roll past Hanover in season opener, 77-57 passing is off the charts, and he can shoot it. He’s extremely well rounded.” Seabury will look for its second victory when it plays host to Maranatha Academy at 7:30 tonight.

By Evan Riggs

Junior Zach McDermott dribbled to the lane and pulled up for a floater. It was one of the few shots he missed, but he was still able to tip it to the corner to his teammate, senior Mikey Wycoff, who drained a three-pointer. It was that sort of a night for McDermott. Even when he missed, just about everything he touched turned into points. McDermott scored a game-high 28 points to lead the Bishop Seabury boys basketball team to a 77-57 victory in its season-opener against Hanover. The win gave Bishop Seabury, ranked No. 2 in the preseason Class 2A poll, a win over the preseason No. 1 team in Class 1A-I. “I was just real focused tonight,” McDermott said. “I wanted to get everyone involved. Some of the shots that were open just happened to be to me. If the next night it’s somebody else, they’re going to hit the shot.” Seabury had to come from behind because Hanover senior Michael Jueneman scored 10 of his 19 points in the first quarter to give the Wildcats a 19-13 lead. Seabury controlled the game from there, which coach Ashley Battles credited to his team’s ability to contain Jueneman, the focal point of the scouting report. In order to do so, the Seahawks played just about every defense imaginable. They played a 2-3, 1-3-1,

A right-side hitter for her club and high school teams, Burse, a former basketball player, needed to make the switch to outside hitter because Kelsie Payne, a 2015 All-American and 2016 Big 12 player of the year, plays on the right side.

3-2, 2-1-2, and 1-1-3 zone in addition to man-to-man, where they switched every ball screen. Battles said his team is starting to play smarter. “I think we really trust each other,” Battles said. “Bringing almost everybody back (from last season) has really helped with that.” The Wildcats still hung around for the rest of the first half and were down just 38-33 at halftime after Wycoff threw down a vicious dunk as time expired in the second quarter. “That’s what he can do, and that’s what his athleticism can do for our

team,” McDermott said. “He gave us energy and momentum going into the next quarter.” The Seahawks opened the third quarter on a 10-4 run and held a lead of at least nine points for the remainder of the game. To start the fourth quarter, McDermott made a layup and nailed a deep three-pointer to spark a 9-0 run by the Seahawks to take a commanding 63-44 lead. “There cannot be five better points guards in the state of Kansas than him,” Battles said. “He can do it all. He’s strong, he’s fast, he’s smart, his

Seabury girls drop season opener to Hanover Bishop Seabury’s girls basketball team turned the ball over 41 times in its season-opening 78-7 home loss to Hanover on Thursday night. Senior Kayleigh Boos scored all seven points for the Seahawks in the first quarter before exiting with an ankle injury in the second quarter. After trailing just 17-7 after the first quarter, Seabury allowed Hanover (ranked No. 3 in Class 1AI) to score 61 unanswered points. In the final three quarters, the Seahawks couldn’t deal with Hanover’s pressure defense and only attempted 10 shots during that time. “I don’t want them to get discouraged by the scoreboard,” coach Nick Taylor said. “Give me 100 percent at all times, and we’ll be fine. We need to learn from this.” Bishop Seabury (0-1) will play host to Maranatha Academy at 6 p.m. today.

adjustments to the college game that Burse, a high-flying, hard-hitting explosive player needed to make to work her way into the lineup. Her steady improvement led to a big night for her in her NCAA debut. Burse isn’t one of KU’s five players to have earned first-team Big 12 honors at least once, but she did lead the Jayhawks in kills with 14 and had a .344 hitting percentage. Payne, against whom Samford focused its defense, added nine kills and had a .571 hitting percentage. “I started off kind of nervous, but after a

couple of kills I was fine,” Burse said. That describes how her season has gone as well. “I was really nervous at the beginning of the year because I have never played outside before,” Burse said. “Outside hitter is a big role to play. It’s nothing but fun now. I try not to think too much about that stuff now. It helps me a lot by not overthinking and just playing.” The light went off for her, she said, “when I started getting more comfortable in practice, probably toward the beginning of conference. That’s when I started to get more comfortable and

there was better chemistry with (setter) Ainise (Havili). Teammate Madison Rigdon said of Burse, “She’s become a great player and I’m really excited to play next to her.” Kansas coach Ray Bechard didn’t like everything he saw in his team, but had nothing but praise for Burse. “She’s making more volleyball plays, not just athletic plays,” Bechard said. “I think the light came on for her about six weeks ago when she said, ‘I belong here. I’m a good enough volleyball player.’ That was a great NCAA debut for her.”
