Too close to call between Romney, Santorum in Iowa By Steven Thomma McClatchy Newspapers

DES MOINES, IOWA — Iowa Republicans split closely between Mitt Romney and upstart Rick Santorum on Tuesday, launching a con-

tentious battle for the right to challenge Democratic President Barack Obama in the fall. With 99 percent of the votes counted, Romney, the former governor of Massachusetts, and Santorum, the former senator from Penn-

Texas Gov. Rick Perry in fifth and Rep. Michele Bachmann of Minnesota in sixth. Perry announced that he’ll return to Texas to assess his campaign, likely a step toward dropping out. Bachmann’s campaign also appeared on life support.

Incentive for new 9th, N.H. building approved By Chad Lawhorn clawhorn@ljworld.com

to and from Joseph’s treatments and their Kansas City, Mo., home. “There was a time in our lives when this building was just another building on the route down Main Street, and now we understand that it is so much more,” he said. The Community Blood Center serves 70 hospitals in northeast Kansas and northwest Missouri, including Lawrence Memorial Hospital and Children’s Mercy Hospital, and it must collect at least 580 pints of blood every day to meet the region’s needs.

A deal is a deal, even if it is a few years late. At least that’s how a majority of Lawrence city commissioners felt Tuesday evening as they gave preliminary approval to make $280,000 in payments to a Lawrence development group that is building a seven-story apartment and office building at the southwest corner of Ninth and New Hampshire streets. On a 4-1 vote, commissioners agreed to make 10 annual payments of $28,000 to reimburse a development group led by Lawrence businessman Doug Compton for various public improvements — everything from street lights to sideCITY walks — that were made COMMISSION as part of the apartment/office project. The incentive request has been lingering at City Hall for more than a year, and it came with a complication: Developers didn’t ask for the incentive until after they already had started construction on the project. That brought questions from the public about why the incentive should be offered. On Tuesday, city commissioners acknowledged the unusual timing made the request politically difficult. “Obviously, this would be a lot easier discussion if we were talking about a drawing on a wall, and the question was whether we wanted this project to happen,” City Commissioner Bob Schumm said. “The question then would be whether it is worth $28,000 a year to get a $10 million building? I think that would be a pretty easy decision.” Not for everyone. Commissioners did hear opposition from a taxpayer advocate who said the deal wasn’t fiscally responsible and from neighbors who currently are fighting another Compton-led project to build a multistory hotel on the

KANSAS CITY, MO. — Thomas and Angela Charles had the rare opportunity Tuesday to thank eight people who helped save their 4-yearold son’s life by donating blood. As Thomas stood before the donors at a podium inside the Community Blood Center during a media event, he fought back tears and tried to keep his composure as he expressed his gratitude and talked about his son’s 14-month battle with neuroblastoma, an aggressive form of cancer that develops from nerve tissue.

Absentee voting concerns raised under new law srothschild@ljworld.com

Energy smart: The Journal-World makes the most of renewable resources. www.b-e-f.org

TOPEKA — An election law written by Secretary of State Kris Kobach that requires photo identification to vote and other restrictions is raising new concerns about absentee voting. Under the law, county election officials must decide whether the signature on a request for an advance ballot matches the person’s previous signature that could be on a voter registra-

tion form or another type of identification. If it doesn’t, the election official must make an effort to con- Kobach tact that person to give them another attempt at signing the application. But Rep. Ed Trimmer, DWinfield, said the law and its accompanying rules and reg-

ulations failed to prescribe how much of an effort the county election official must make to track down the potential voter and clear up the dispute. “This gives a lot of leeway to the election officer,” Trimmer said. He said many times, people who request advance ballots will be difficult to reach because they requested an advance ballot knowing they would be elsewhere around the time of the election. Legislators said there

could be good reasons that a person’s signature requesting an advance ballot looks different from a previous signature. The person’s ability to sign their name could be affected by age or illness, they said. But Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, a Republican who pushed for the new law, said he believed Kansas’ county election officers would make a good faith effort to ensure those who are eligible to vote will receive an advance ballot.

Rep. Valdenia Winn, D-Kansas City, however, wasn’t assured. “My level of discomfort is getting higher and higher,” Winn said. Douglas County Clerk Jamie Shew said his office sometimes receives signatures on advance ballot applications that don’t look the same, and he contacts the applicant. He said it is usually a situation where a husband signs for a wife or vice versa and Please see VOTING, page 2A

GORDON B. SAILORS A memorial service for Gordon Byron Sailors, 94, Topeka, is planned for a later date. Mr. Sailors died Thursday, Dec. 29, 2011, at StormontVail Regional Health Center in Topeka. He was born in 1917 in Rosalie, Neb., the son of Byron and Julia Octavia Day Sailors. He attended high school in Leonardville. Mr. Sailors graduated from Pittsburg State University with a teaching degree in 1940 and a master’s degree in 1949. He served in the U.S. Navy at the Great Lakes Navy Center during World War II training troops in physical education. Mr. Sailors was a lifelong educator. He began his career in Elmdale and then taught and coached at Highland Park High School from 1951 to 1961 and Topeka West High School from 1961 to 1971. Mr. Sailors was honored as Kansas Industrial Arts Teacher of the year as well as Kansas Driver Education Instructor of the Year. He also served the state of Kansas as deputy fire marshal as well as an administrator for civil defense training and education. He was a lifetime member of the National Education Association. Mr. Sailors was an active member of the First Presbyterian Church of Topeka, where he served as an elder and Sunday school teacher. He was also active in Topeka Wood Carvers as well as the International Wood Collectors Society, where he served as president. Mr. Sailors volunteered for Habitat for Humanity and each summer provided the Topeka Rescue Mission with

fruit and vegetables from his garden. Mr. Sailors was an avid bridge player and Royals baseball fan. He designed lamps and Sailors mementoes from major league baseball bats for numerous American League players. He also played on a national fastpitch softball team while serving in the U.S. Navy and managed and played softball in Topeka for more than 40 years. He married Virginia Ford Davis in May 1940.

clear evening, a quadrennial showcase of democracy that often winnows the field of candidates while sending top finishers off to the rest of the country. Turnout was close to the record 118,000 who showed up in 2008. Both Romney and Santorum looked ahead with reason for optimism — and challenges to their hopes. Romney emerged in a strong position thanks in part to the relative weakness of his top rivals going forward. Paul told supporters Tuesday evening that he’s the only other candidate who can wage a national campaign. “We’re going to keep scoring,” he said. But his isolationist foreign policy makes it very unlikely he could win the nomination. Moreover, Iowans did not rally to either Gingrich or Perry, among the best suited to test Romney coast to coast. Gingrich has fame and unrivaled debate skills; Perry had money. Yet Romney still faces questions from conservatives — despite four years of work, he could not increase his share of the Iowa vote from 2008. And his barrage of negative ads against Gingrich is drawing rage from Gingrich, who vowed to fight back starting today. Santorum managed to finish strong thanks to a long, faceto-face campaign in Iowa, and he could rally support as the conservative alternative to Romney. “Thank you so much Iowa,” he said late Tuesday. But Santorum lacks money and organization in later voting states. He did not, for example, make the primary ballot

in Virginia. And his evangelical base is less influential in other states than in Iowa. The campaign races next to the East Coast for a rapid-fire series of contests that might be called the Interstate 95 primary, with primary elections in New Hampshire on Jan. 10, in South Carolina on Jan. 21, and in Florida on Jan. 31. Romney dominates in New Hampshire polls, so much so that anything less than a landslide win by him there could be seen as a setback. New Hampshire is more liberal than Iowa, much less interested in social issues than the Hawkeye State, and much more challenging to social conservatives. It’s also very familiar with Romney, who has a summer home there and governed next door. He leads by a better than 2-to-1 margin over Paul and nearly 3-to-1 over Gingrich. Gingrich and Paul both will challenge Romney on his home turf. Gingrich arrives in New Hampshire this morning and vows to hammer Romney as a closet liberal. Santorum also heads to New Hampshire today, eager to prove that his late surge into the top tier in Iowa was not an isolated event because of his long campaigning there. He visited all 99 Iowa counties. Whether all the candidates make it further is an open question, particularly for Bachmann. The woman who won a straw poll of Iowa Republicans in August and briefly held first place in the polls all but collapsed in recent weeks. She announced that she’d forge ahead, calling Iowa “the very first chapter” and scheduling campaign events in South Carolina today, Thursday and Friday. She also looked to the two nationally televised debates in New Hampshire as a last, free chance to turn things around.

southeast corner of Ninth and New Hampshire. “Right now in this state, and potentially in this country, we’re massively cutting our support for the poor and the elderly, but we’re being asked to provide social support for the rich,” said Town Peterson, who lives east of the project. Ultimately, commissioners said they were comfortable providing the incentive because they believe a previous City Commission already had set the expectation that new development in the 900 block of New Hampshire would receive public assistance. In 2000, city commissioners created a Tax Increment Finance District for much of the 900 block of New Hampshire Street. The district entitled

the city for the next 20 years to collect much of the county’s and school district’s share of property taxes on any new developments in the district. The agreement called for the city to use those tax collections to pay for public infrastructure. A $7 million public parking garage was the largest piece of infrastructure, but the city also took out about $900,000 worth of debt to reimburse developers for public infrastructure related to future projects in the block. But the city expected those projects to be completed by 2005. The fact that this project didn’t come forward until 2010 created a concern for city staff members. After 2005, the city believed future development may not be coming for the block and used the $900,000 to make debt payments on the parking garage. Commissioners, though, said the city can still afford to provide the incentive be-

L AWRENCE J OURNAL -W ORLD cause the new building will add about $265,000 a year in taxes to the city’s coffers. City Commissioner Mike Amyx voted against the incentive because he said city taxpayers already have had to pay more for the parking garage than was anticipated. New taxes from private development were expected to pay for about half of the $7 million garage. The taxes from new development, however, have paid less than $100,000 a year on the project, city officials estimated. “It is hard for me to say we’re going to grant this request knowing that we’re still going to have to come up with money to pay for the parking garage,” Amyx said. Commissioners will finalize the incentive deal in the coming weeks when staff members produce a formal agreement for developers to sign. — City reporter Chad Lawhorn can be reached at 832-6362.

“Never in a million years when we were signing the consent form for that first blood transfusion did I think we would be able to thank the people who donated blood to Joseph, and so we are honored and privileged to do that today,” Thomas said, struggling to speak the words. “From the bottom of our hearts, we would like to say thank you.” One by one, the donors came forward and received a hug or handshake from each parent, a handshake from Joseph’s twin brother, Patrick, and a smile from Joseph, who is now in remission. Among them was Basehor resident David Mellott, 43, a police officer at Fort Leavenworth, who has regularly donated blood for 20 years. He gave Joseph a toy police car and a pat on the head. “Even after all of these years, I still don’t like the initial stick, but I know it’s going to help someone,” he said. “I just wish more people would donate.” The other donors expressed the same sentiments. Stuart Meurer, 28, just moved to Kansas City from Texas three years ago and donates blood when the center has a drive at his church. He felt a special bond with Joseph because he is a twin, too. “I understand the bond that twins can have, so I hope he does well in the future not only for him but for his brother and his family,” Meurer said. And for John Naylor, of Overland Park, the meeting was an early birthday gift; he turns 49 this week. Naylor has been donating blood since he was a high school student, and now four of his five children donate blood as well. He said his youngest child likely will donate once he turns 16, the minimum age to donate. “When you donate blood, you think that it going to help somebody and you hope it is, but here today to

BLOOD DONATIONS SOUGHT January is National Blood Donor Month because donations decrease this time of year because of the holidays, weather and illnesses. The Kansas City, Mo.-based Community Blood Center is no exception. David Graham, vice president of donor and hospital services, said they’ve experienced about a 40 percent drop in donations, yet, unfortunately, the demand remains the same. The center supplies blood to 70 area hospitals, including Lawrence Memorial Hospital. One donation, which is about a pint, can help two hospital patients. The center must collect at least 580 pints of blood every day to meet the region’s needs. The American Red Cross, which supplies blood to nearly 3,000 hospitals nationwide, also needs donations. The Central Plains Blood Services Region supplies blood to most Kansas hospitals

and northern Oklahoma. There are several blood drives scheduled in Lawrence. The Community Blood Center’s are:

Jan. 17 — 9 a.m.-noon, Douglas County Courthouse, 1100 Mass.

Feb. 3 — 2 p.m.-4:30 p.m., Lawrence School District parking lot, 110 McDonald Drive.

Feb. 13 — 10:30 a.m.-1 p.m., Lawrence Board of Realtors parking lot, 3838 W. Sixth St.

Feb. 23 — 2 p.m.-5:30 p.m., Lawrence Public Library, 707 Vt. The American Red Cross is having a drive:

Iran defiant amid appeals for sanctions

srothschild@ljworld.com

Iran closed out naval war games in the Gulf on Tuesday much the way they began last month: striking a tone of military defiance while Western powers rallied behind tougher oil and financial sanctions as a crippling tool against Tehran’s nuclear program. The standoff atmosphere — less than a week after Iran warned it could block one of the world’s key oil tanker sea lanes in response to economic pressures — appeared to deepen further with an Iranian general suggesting a U.S. aircraft carrier is not welcome to return to the Gulf. In Paris, meanwhile, France’s foreign minister said there is “no doubt” that Iran is moving toward a nuclear weapon and urged Europe to match America’s tighter sanctions set in motion last week. Alain Juppe said the measures could include targeting Iran’s Central Bank and imposing an Iranian oil embargo.

TOPEKA — House Speaker Mike O’Neal, R-Hutchinson, forwarded to fellow Republicans an email that refers to President Barack Obama and a Bible verse that says “Let his days be few and brief.” But the speaker’s office said Tuesday that the email was referring to the president’s days in office. The email, which has been posted in various places on the

Internet, refers to a bumper sticker that reads “Pray for Obama. Psalm 109:8.” Psalm 109:8 says, “Let his days be few and brief; and O’Neal let others step forward to replace him.” The email states: “At last — I can honestly voice a Biblical prayer for our president! Look it up — it is word

for word! Let us all bow our heads and pray. Brothers and Sisters, can I get an AMEN? AMEN!!!!!!” Asked about the email by the Lawrence Journal-World, Alyson Rodee, communications director for the speaker’s office, said, “The email is a forward expressing the desire for the President’s days in office to be short so he is replaced by someone which the Speaker agrees with on the issues — in America we have the opportunity for a

peaceful transfer of power every four years. This email is about prayer expressing what Republicans around the country are working toward — voting into office a likeminded president in 2012.” House Minority Leader Paul Davis, D-Lawrence, had a bit of advice for O’Neal. “Beware of what you forward on email and how it can be interpreted,” he said. — Statehouse reporter Scott Rothschild can be reached at 785-423-0668.

Taliban to open office in Qatar The Taliban announced Tuesday that they will open an office in the Persian Gulf nation of Qatar to hold talks with the United States, an unprecedented step toward a peace process that might lead to a winding down of the 10-year war in Afghanistan. Although U.S. and Taliban representatives have met secretly several times over the past year in Europe and the Persian Gulf, this is the first time the Islamist insurgent group has publicly expressed willingness for substantive negotiations. In recent months, the idea of a Taliban political office in the Qatari capital of Doha has become a central element in U.S. efforts to draw the insurgents into such talks. The idea is to give the Taliban more legitimacy to negotiate in a location that presumably would at least partly shield them from Pakistani pressure. 3 | JORDAN

Israelis, Palestinians to resume talks

gdiepenbrock@ljworld.com

The first meeting between Israeli and Palestinian peace negotiators in more than a year ended without any significant breakthroughs Tuesday, but in a small sign of progress, the sides agreed to continue the dialogue, officials said. Resumption of any kind of contacts would be an important achievement, though Israel and the Palestinians remain far from agreement on key issues to resolve their decades-long conflict. The 15-month breakdown in negotiations has seen a progressive souring of the atmosphere, and earlier Tuesday, the Palestinian president had warned of taking tough measures against Israel if talks don’t resume by Jan. 26. Jordan’s foreign minister, Nasser Judeh, who hosted Tuesday’s gathering in the Jordanian capital Amman, expressed some hope. “The important thing is the two sides have met face to face today,” he said.

Sarkozy accuses Assad of ‘massacres’ French President Nicolas Sarkozy issued a new call Tuesday for Syrian President Bashar Assad to step down because of massacres by his regime, and an Arab League official said it will discuss withdrawing an observer mission to the country because of the ongoing bloodshed. While the Arab League said some progress was seen in Syria by the team of monitors who began working last week, it noted that the mission was still in its early stages. But Sarkozy insisted that Assad “must leave power.” “The massacres being committed by the Syrian regime rightly arouse disgust and revolt in the Arab world, in France, in Europe and everywhere in the world,” Sarkozy said in a New Year’s address at a navy air base in Lanveoc-Poulmic, France.

SCHOOLS

Democrats postpone unveiling funding plan By Scott Rothschild srothschild@ljworld.com

TOPEKA — Democratic legislators have postponed unveiling their school funding plan. State Democratic leaders decided to push back the announcement that had been scheduled for today in response to a reported major announcement by Boeing in Wichita that was scheduled for this morning. The education announcement will be made at a later date. The proposal will be in contrast to one by Gov. Sam Brownback, a Republican. Legislators will consider school funding during the 2012 session that starts Monday. Brownback’s plan would elimDavis inate state limits on local property taxes for education, do away with a system of providing funds based on student needs, such as being at-risk of failing, and provide no additional dollars to nearly all of the state’s midsized and large districts. House Minority Leader Paul Davis, D-Lawrence, said the Democratic proposal will focus on trying to restore recent budget cuts to schools. Democrats have argued that the current formula of distributing funds to schools is fine, but that system is underfunded. In recent years, base state aid has been cut to $3,780 per student, the lowest level in a decade and far short of the level state law called for to be in compliance with Kansas Supreme Court rulings that funding must be tied to the actual cost of providing an education.

Boeing plans employee meeting amid closure study WICHITA (AP) — A decision about the possible closure of the Boeing Co.’s defense plant in Wichita appeared imminent after a mandatory meeting for all employees was set for today at the facility. Boeing officials said in November that the company was studying whether to close the Wichita facility, which specializes in modifying commercial aircraft for military or government operations, in order to address Pentagon budget cuts. The company said it would make an announcement by early this year, fueling speculation that decision will be the topic of the employee meeting. Jarrod Bartlett, spokesman for Boeing in Wichita, confirmed the employee meeting

A Douglas County judge Tuesday ordered a 27-year-old Lawrence man to face a trial on a rape charge, prosecutors said. District Judge Kay Huff heard the prosecution’s evidence in the case Tuesday during a preliminary hearing. He was charged in December after a female roommate, 22, accused him of assaulting her at their residence in north-central Lawrence. The alleged incident occurred early Dec. 10. Prosecutors accuse the man of committing the crime while the victim was “unconscious or physically powerless.” A trial is scheduled for March 6, and he remains in jail in lieu of $100,000 bond. The Journal-World generally does not identify sex crime suspects unless they are convicted.

but declined further comment. The anticipated announcement comes just two weeks after U.S. Rep. Mike Pompeo told reporters that a top Boeing official had told him the firm plans to do modi- Pompeo fications on the Air Force refueling tankers at its plant in Washington state rather than Wichita. Boeing also intends to move maintenance work on Air Force One out of Wichita to Kelly Air Force Base in San Antonio. Boeing won a decade-long fight for Pentagon approval to build 179 refueling tank-

ers worth at least $35 billion, a project long touted as being able to create some 7,500 direct and indirect jobs in Kansas with an overall economic impact of $388 million. The study of plant’s future has now raised fears about the existing 2,100 jobs at the facility. Boeing has had a facility in Wichita since 1929 when it bought the Stearman Aircraft Co. In 2005, Boeing spun off its commercial aircraft operations in Kansas and Oklahoma. At that time, the company still had roughly 15,000 employees in Wichita. After the divestiture, Boeing retained 4,500 workers for its defense work in Wichita but layoffs since have slashed that remaining workforce.

Making the switch? Here’s some advice from Terry Dahl for any other Wildcats looking to join Jayhawk Nation: 1. Be open and upfront about it. Dahl sent an email to family and friends, and he encourages others not to be shy coming out of the purple closet. “It feels better when you get it off your chest,” he says. 2. Fair-weather fandom? Forget it. “I’m totally against that type of behavior. You have to be on board: All KU or all K-State. One way or the other. It’s weak, in my own mind, to root for KU in basketball and K-State in football.” 3. Shed the purple fashion — the T-shirts, the ’Cat paws and everything else. “I got rid of it. There isn’t anything purple in my house. If somebody’s truly a KU fan or a K-State fan, you shouldn’t have clothing from the other school.” the purple paraphernalia is gone, donated through his church to others less fortunate. Even his KSU degree is packed away somewhere, far less accessible than his more than 27 KU T-shirts and dozens of KU jackets, hats, shorts, socks and other accoutrements that support his newfound fate. “A lot of people think it’s really weird,” Dahl admits. “I can totally understand that.” But it’s reality, as the Jayhawks and Wildcats prepare to tip off yet another edition of their Sunflower Showdown tonight at Allen Fieldhouse. Of course, he’s counting on his adopted team to topple his lower-ranked alma mater. “This isn’t one of KU’s better teams, and K-State is scaring me. I’ve been real impressed with what they did in Hawaii,” says Dahl, of the Wildcats’ recent championship at the Diamond Head Classic. “It’s going to be a very tight game but I’ll say KU wins, because it’s in Allen.” Spoken like a true Jayhawk. — Schools reporter Mark Fagan can be reached at 832-7188.

He’s even a card-carrying member of the Kansas University Alumni Association, despite never having attended a class on Mount Oread, at the Edwards Campus near his Overland Park home or anywhere else where Jayhawks are educated. “KU is just a better school,” he says. “And it’s not just sports.” Dahl’s self-described “conversion” came back in 2004, less than a year after he’d worn purple and cheered for the Wildcats while attending Kansas State’s Big 12 championship game against Oklahoma in Kansas City, Mo.

The dog managed to steal food from several live traps without being caught, but snow and freezing temperatures along with area predators including coyotes, bobcats and eagles were raising concerns. “He survived at least in part by being evasive,” Mansfield said of Buddy. “That was almost his downfall, because people couldn’t catch him.” Worried about the harsh conditions, Mansfield put together a “calorie bomb” that included a ham bone and fat poured over dog food. The dog managed to eat it over a week’s time but again evaded capture. Last Friday, Trostle set a live trap — combining a cage, rope, sticks and the pork chop — that secured the beagle. During breakfast on New Year’s Eve, he heard the sound of a gate slamming shut. Trostle ran outside and found the skinny dog in the trap.

County to mull rec facility plans By Aaron Couch acouch@ljworld.com

At their first meeting of the new year, Douglas County commissioners today will consider issuing a conditional-use permit for Good Earth Gatherings, a recreational facility that would provide outreach and education on sustainable and healthy living. Property owner Tamara Fairbanks-Ishmael seeks to use 10.5 acres at 858 East 1500 Road for the facility. Related retail items would be sold on the property. In November, Fairbanks-Ishmael told the Journal-World if the permit were approved, she would like to begin holding classes by next fall. At least one neighbor has expressed concern that the facility would cause unwanted traffic in the rural area, which is about a half-mile west of the South Lawrence Trafficway on West 15th Street, if it were extended into the county. The meeting is set for 6:35 p.m. today at the Douglas County Courthouse, 1100 Mass. Commissioners also will:

Receive long-term 2012 plans from the Planning Commission on projects in the county and hear updates on existing projects.

Consider approving a contract with Kansas Gas Service to move a natural gas line because it’s near a planned reconstruction project on one mile of Douglas County Road 1055 between U.S. Highway 56 in Baldwin City and Douglas County Road 12, which also is known as the State Lake Road. Moving the line would cost $9,461.

Obama applauds help of Iowa Democrats By Ken Thomas and Luke Meredith Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Confronting his Republican opponents, President Barack Obama told Iowa Democrats on Tuesday that the stakes of the 2012 election are much higher than when the state launched his presidential bid four years ago. “We’re battling millions of dollars of negative advertising and lobObama byists and special interests who don’t want to see the change that you worked so hard to fully take root,” Obama said in a teleconference with Democrats attending precinct caucuses. “And that’s why this time out is going to be, in some ways, more important than the first time out.” Obama outlined his progress during the first term, telling activists in the live video link that because of their support, the Iraq War ended, a major health care overhaul bill was signed into law and the military’s “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy on gays was no longer in use. “The problems that we’ve been dealing with over the last three years, they didn’t happen overnight and we’re not going to fix them overnight,” Obama said. Democrats estimated that more than 25,000 Iowans attended Democratic caucuses. Obama wasted little time getting back in front of voters following a Hawaiian vacation spent largely out of the spotlight. Today, Obama will travel to Cleveland for an event focused on the economy.

HEATHER PETERS, who says her 2006 Honda Civic Hybrid never achieved the 50 mpg Honda claimed in its advertising, has opted out of a class action settlement agreed to by Honda because it does not provide enough remuneration.

Woman sues Honda in small claims court

By Linda Deutsch

Associated Pre ss

TORRANCE, CALIF. — A Los Angeles woman who expected her hybrid Honda Civic to be a high-mileage machine wants the automaker to pay for not delivering the 50 mpg it promised. But rather than being one of thousands in a class-action lawsuit, she took her case Tuesday to small claims court. Experts said Heather Peters has a better chance of winning her case in a court with more relaxed standards and could get a payout many times higher than the few hundred dollars offered to class-action plaintiffs. Peters said she’s been contacted by hundreds of owners who also want to take their chances with small claims, where there are no attorneys’ fees and cases are decided quickly. “If I prevail and get $10,000, they have 200,000 of these cars out there,” said Peters. Peters, a state employee and ex-lawyer, argued that Honda knew her car wouldn’t get the 50 mpg as advertised before a judge in Torrance, where American Honda Motor Co. has its West Coast headquarters. As her 2006 vehicle’s battery deteriorated over time, it barely got 30 mpg, she said. Neil Schmidt, a technical expert for Honda, called Peters’ $10,000 claim excessive for her 2006 Civic Hybrid. He said the federal government had required Honda to post the highest mileage the car could get but said the mileage varies depending on how the car is driven — for instance, if it gets stuck often

in stop-and-go traffic. Peters said she would have never purchased the car if she had known that. “The sales force said 50 miles per gallon, but they didn’t say if you run your air conditioning and you remain in stop-and-go traffic, you’re going to get 29 to 30 miles per gallon,” she said. “If they did, I would have gotten the regular Civic.” Peters never contacted Honda to complain or express any concern about her vehicle’s fuel economy until she sent a letter in late November 2011 and then filed her suit shortly thereafter, Honda said in a statement Tuesday. “Once the suit was filed, Honda immediately offered to inspect her vehicle and work with her on the findings, but those offers were rejected,” the company said in the statement. “The window sticker that was attached to her vehicle (as required by federal law) clearly indicated that her mileage would vary depending on driving conditions, options, vehicle condition and other factors,” the statement said. But if Peters wins, and other Civic owners follow her lead, she estimates Honda could be forced to pay as much as $2 billion in damages. Experts say there are upsides to Peters’ unusual move. “I would not be surprised if she won,” said Richard Cupp Jr., who teaches productliability law at Pepperdine University. “The judge will have a lot of discretion, and the evidentiary standards are relaxed in small claims court.

BUSINESS AT A GLANCE

Notable In a major shift, the Federal Reserve will start announcing four times a year how long it plans to keep short-term interest rates at existing levels, according to minutes from its December policy meeting. The shift marks the Fed’s latest effort to make its communications with the public more open and explicit. The change is intended to reassure consumers and investors that they will be able to borrow cheaply well into the future. And some economists said it could lead to further Fed action to try to invigorate the economy.

Factories, builders boost economy at end of year By Christopher S. Rugaber

The trend for the U.S. economy is most decid— U.S. manu- edly to the upside.” Associated Press

WASHINGTON facturers ended 2011 with their best month of growth since the late spring. And the struggling construction industry spent more on projects for the third time in four months. The data bolstered hopes that the economy is gaining momentum and helped Wall Street start 2012 with a bang. Factories hired more workers in December, saw the most growth in new orders since April and ramped up production. U.S. builders spent more in November on single-family homes, apartments and remodeling projects. The strong reports correspond with other positive signs for the economy. Consumer confidence is up, unemployment benefit applications have tumbled, and the unemployment rate is at a three-and-a-half-year low. Economists caution that Europe’s debt crisis will likely slow global growth in the first half of the year. But on Tuesday, the outlook was mostly positive. The Institute for Supply Management, a trade group of purchasing managers, said its manufacturing index rose to 53.9 from 52.7 in November. Readings above 50 indicate expansion.

— Dan Greenhaus, an analyst at brokerage firm BTIG LLC in New York The Commerce Department said spending on construction projects rose 1.2 percent in November. The increase was the largest since a 2.2 percent rise in August. “The trend for the U.S. economy is most decidedly to the upside,” said Dan Greenhaus, an analyst at brokerage firm BTIG LLC in New York. The Dow Jones industrial average rose 179.82 points, almost 1.5 percent, to close at 12,397.38. Broader indexes also climbed. Reports that manufacturing grew in China and India, two of the world’s largest economies, also drove markets higher. U.S manufacturing has expanded for more than two years. Factories were one of the first areas of the economy to start growing after the recession officially ended in June 2009. They faltered over the summer after Japan’s March 11 earthquake disrupted auto and electronics supply chains. The December ISM survey showed many factories have largely recovered from their slump earlier this year.

Consistency or just foolishness? Casino message

EDITORIALS

PUBLIC FORUM

Time’s up More time probably won’t produce more definitive recommendations from the group studying elementary school consolidation issues.

T

he community should appreciate the time that members of a local working group have contributed to studying the consolidation of elementary schools in Lawrence, but it is looking less and less likely that the group will supply any meaningful guidance for the Lawrence school board. With less than a month to go before its Jan. 31 deadline, the Central and East Lawrence Elementary School Consolidation Working Group has yet to arrive at any solid recommendations. At their previous meeting, members of the group could agree on only one point: that regardless of whether any schools are consolidated, the district should propose a bond issue to raise more money for elementary schools. On Monday, their only point of consensus was that they would need more time to finish their job. Two board members who attended Monday’s meeting said the request for more time probably would be approved. “I’d rather get something right than something rushed,” said Keith Diaz Moore. With all due respect to those involved, it seems unlikely that giving this group more time is substantially going to impact the conclusions it reaches. A number of factors almost guaranteed this group would end up at an impasse. First, the working group was made up almost entirely of people who represented schools that likely would be closed and/or consolidated. They all had a constituency to represent or turf to protect. Other factors also worked against them. It wasn’t until this week that the working group received projections for enrollment at the district’s 14 elementary schools — data that should figure heavily in their discussions. Interestingly, the projections prepared by an outside consulting firm, indicate that four of the six schools being considered for consolidation are expected to see enrollment increases over the next five years and two of the six are expected to be over capacity by the 2016-17 school year. How does that figure in with plans to close schools? The group also has been hampered by mixed signals from the school board. Last year, the board approved specific instructions that the working group was to assume that the six schools in question would be reduced to three or four schools and should work to come up with the best scenario for that consolidation. After that charge was approved, however, four new board members took office, and the commitment to closing and consolidating schools appears to have softened. The board can allow the working group more time to consider its recommendation, but it seems unlikely that more time will produce a more definitive recommendation. That means this issue will simply be back where it started: on the school board’s agenda. It’s always a good idea to collect public input and try to involve stakeholders in key community decisions, but the factors mentioned above have made it difficult, if not impossible, for this working group to produce a solid recommendation. More time won’t help. The board should encourage the group to complete whatever work it can accomplish quickly and turn the issue back to the elected officials.

“A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds.” — Ralph Waldo Emerson. Ralph Waldo Emerson, meet Ronald Ernest Paul. He is the very soul of a foolish consistency. Meaning that he is willing, often to a fault, to follow his ideology to its logical and most extreme conclusions. In this, the congressman differs from other GOP contenders for the White House and, for that matter, from most politicians, period. Your average pol might rail against the intrusion of government into the private lives of its citizens, then turn right around and advocate a law regulating what a gay man does in his bedroom — and see no contradiction. Paul is too intellectually honest for that. Intellectual honesty is a good thing, if only because it can lead you to reconsider a faulty premise. But in Paul’s take on the Civil Rights Act of 1964 he doubles down on the bad premise instead. Paul has long argued — and reiterated Sunday on CNN — that the act, which liberated untold millions of African-Americans from the tyranny of Jim Crow, “destroyed the principle of private property and private choices.” In other words, forcing a restaurant to take down a Whites Only sign infringed the rights of the restaurant’s owner. A similar argument was made by segregationists in 1964 — and by slave owners in the 1850s. Maybe it’s easy to make freedom an issue of “property rights”

when you have never been the property. That said, it is of little importance to wonder, as some are now doing, whether all of this makes Ron Paul a racist. Yes, we’ve recently learned of a newsletter sent out under his name in the 1990s that included racist language. Yes, Paul has won — and declined to disavow — the support of various white supremacist groups. But yes, too, Paul has (rightly) decried the War on Drugs as a war on African-American men. So take him at his word, that he is just a man for whom government equals tyranny — a view shared by many on the right. Then ask yourself what sort of nation this would be if that view ever prevailed.

Can government be overlarge, overbearing, overwhelming, over restrictive, over intrusive? Of course. And where it is those things, it is the right — and duty — of the electorate to pare it back. On the other hand, unless you enjoy salmonella in your food and lead in your paint, unless you think it’s OK that your doctor has no medical degree and your lawyer no license, unless you’re fine with breathing sooty air and drinking tainted water and unless you really think a black woman in Mississippi, locked out of public places by threat of violence and force of law, should have been required to wait on market forces to rescue her, you must regard Paul’s moral imbecility with a certain appalled awe. Heaven help us if the intellectual rigidity he symbolizes is really the only alternative to the intellectual malleability of so many of his colleagues At its best, government vindicates and defends a people’s noblest ideals. The Civil Rights Act was government at its best. Paul disputes this and styles himself a defender of freedom for so doing. Too bad he can’t spend a day being black in Mississippi in 1964. He might emerge with a better understanding of that word. As it is, Paul’s extremism only proves this much: Emerson didn’t know the half of it. — Leonard Pitts Jr., winner of the 2004 Pulitzer Prize for commentary, is a columnist for the Miami Herald.

To the editor: In these troubled economic times, using casinos to generate state revenue makes about as much sense as making a cash deposit during a bank robbery (“Casino crowd,” Journal-World, Dec 28). Granted, there may be some short-term profits (the same arguments made when the lottery was established), but this form of economic redistribution only serves to further the divide between the haves and the have-nots, and does nothing to re-establish the agro-industrial-intellectual base of the state. At a deeper level, what does state-sponsored gambling say about us as Kansans? Even with hard work and persistent effort, has the American dream become so remote and incredulous that citizens must now rely upon luck and good fortune to realize their hopes? Should the state be an accessory in pandering to these simpleminded scams? Don’t want to sound too apocalyptic, but if the state is indeed the soul writ large, then we Kansans continue to walk confidently down the yellow-brick road toward, if not perdition, than at least greater poverty. Ray Finch, Lawrence

Hunting benefit To the editor: I am writing this letter to encourage the “city farmers” who own property in the county to allow the hunters to hunt deer and turkeys on their farms. Do you realize the amount of damage the wildlife does to the crops on your farms and also the many dollars of damage through accidents the deer cause on the roads? If you don’t allow the hunters the opportunity to control the wildlife there will be an overproduction and it will become more detrimental. Please open up your farms. Doris Pratt, Baldwin City

Birthday spurs a look back In a few days I will celebrate my 60th birthday, although I’m not at all sure that celebrate is the right word. These days, when I look in the mirror, the face I see more and more resembles that of my grandfather. Recently a student wanted to know whether I had been at Yale with her grandfather. Another student in the class is the daughter of a former student. All these, obviously, are signs that I’m getting older. My upcoming birthday has also brought with it a number of messages via Facebook and other social networking sites from folks I knew decades ago, in high school and college. It’s fascinating for me to reconnect with them now and compare life stories. When we were in high school and college we were all wondering what life would bring for us. The Vietnam War was the big thing in our lives, who would go, who wouldn’t; who would survive, who wouldn’t. Then the war ended, college ended, and suddenly it was time to worry about becoming adults: careers, marriage, children. As I read the notes from my friends of decades past I read about how they’ve fared over the years. Pretty much all of us got married. Unfortunately, most of us have also been divorced. Most had children; unfortunately, I did not. I suppose the only advantage of being childless is that I’m not paying off college loans as are several of my friends. I’m particularly interested in the

careers that we followed. Several of my old friends became lawyers, as I did. A few became physicians. One became an orchestra conductor. Several joined the Peace Corps after college and, after that, stayed abroad. One became a language teacher for the U.S. military. One of my college friends became a dictionary editor. Another was an early computer software pioneer. Most of us have been fairly lucky in our lives. When I think about what gave us the opportunities we had, I think that there were several important factors. First, higher education was inexpensive. My college and law school tuition bills never exceeded $3,000 per year. I was able to work part-time to cover the full cost of my education while going to

school. That’s something today’s graduates can rarely do. Second, the economy was, for the most part, decent. I never had a rough time finding a job while I was in school and after I graduated. If you were willing to work hard, you could get a job. Again, I don’t think that is true for many of today’s high school and college students. As I get older, time seems to speed up. It hardly seems possible that this is 2012 and I’m going to turn 60. Every New Year seems to arrive more quickly than the last. I’m feel very lucky that I teach at Kansas University and spend my time with young people. It’s through them that I can still experience, even if only vicariously, what it means to be young today. When I think about the coming year, I think about continuing in a job that I love at a place I enjoy, surrounded by my dogs in a house I’ve lived in for 18 years. Certainly, I worry about the world and about health matters and life after divorce, but I recognize how fortunate my life has been entering into my 60th year. However, I also wonder whether my students will be as fortunate as I have been given the conditions they face in 2012. I can only hope that they will succeed and find contentment and that 2012 will be a good one for all of us. — Mike Hoeflich, a distinguished professor in the Kansas University School of Law, writes a regular column for the Journal-World.

A local man wanted to bring back a tradition that had been YEARS missing in LawAGO rence since the IN 1987 prohibition days. Chuck Magerl, a manager at the Community Mercantile Co-Op, had been studying beer-brewing for a decade and he was now ready to launch his dream of opening a beer garden and selling his homemade brew on the premises. After his testimony, the Kansas Liquor Law Review Commission recommended revising the state laws to allow operation of “micro breweries.”

From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for Jan. 4, 1912: YEARS “Professor J. E. AGO Boodin, who owns IN 1912 the old Windmill site on west Warren [now Ninth] street, will pay a reward of $10 for information leading to the conviction of boys who cut down trees on the property. Last Christmas some person desiring a Christmas tree cut down a fine Norwegian spruce on the property. This year Professor Boodin has been out of town for the holidays and when he returned he found that two fine pine trees had been topped for Christmas trees. Anyone who can give this information should see Professor Boodin at the Eldridge.” — Compiled by Sarah St. John

KANSAS MEN’S BASKETBALL

Tom Keegan tkeegan@ljworld.com

Good and bad, Taylor is key to KU Using your own brain to judge someone who has a different brain type invites trouble. Generally, the best approach lies in challenging yourself to look for something to appreciate about the person who thinks not at all the way you think. Those who have a buttonedup brain tend to strive for control and demand order in their worlds, even if it means juggling four things at once. The more scattered, less focused thinker brings more creativity and tends to pay close attention only to that which he finds exciting. When the task is boring, the mind wanders. Trying to understand what makes the first type tick has been a lifelong challenge. It’s the second type thinkers I empathize with when their uneven focus lands them in trouble, especially when smart people do dumb things. Tyrel Reed had the first brain type, Tyshawn Taylor the second. I can’t relate to people who lead with the negative when discussing Taylor’s on-court pros and cons. He’s the secondbest player on college basketball’s 14th-ranked team. Without him on the roster, Kansas would have a shaky Selection Sunday, after the TV show, nervously waiting for an NIT bid. Taylor has frustrated Kansas coach Bill Self at times, but it’s obvious the longer the Hoboken, N.J., native plays for Self, the more fond of him the coach grows. “He is a pretty scrutinized guy, there’s no question about that, and a lot of that he brings on himself,” Self said. “A lot of that is him being the point guard here with teams that are really good and that kind of stuff.” It’s more than that, of course. “He can be frustrating because he can make plays you can’t coach, then he can make plays you wonder if he’s ever been coached,” Self said. “But that’s him. I’m glad we got him.” Too often, Taylor has played basketball the way so many talented Major League Baseball rookie shortstops have played: A web gem one minute, a botched routine grounder the next. “I think he’s really talented, and I think he’s getting better,” Self said. “I think he’s made a conscious effort to really tighten his game up in a lot of ways. The last few games he’s played pretty good, but he’s going to turn it over. He’s going to make some mistakes.” And the coach has learned to live with them because he knows his point guard brings the effort. Taylor, shooting .514 on three-pointers for the season, has 19 assists and six turnovers in KU’s past three games. “The thing we can’t have him do is become a non-aggressive factor because he’s playing not to screw up,” Self said. “Hey, he’s got to go. He needs to be turned loose. ... The simple plays he can make look difficult and the difficult plays he can make look real easy. I don’t think that’s uncommon. Do guys concentrate more on a guarded three or an uncontested layup?” In that regard, Taylor’s a caricature of the typical player. As always, Kansas State will bring the heat defensively tonight. A year ago, Taylor had one turnover in a 24-point home victory, six in a 16-point road loss. “I’m going to definitely have to take care of the ball to make sure we get a shot every time,” Taylor said.

This year’s Kansas State team is without Pullen, its go-to option, but Robinson and the Jayhawks say that makes the Wildcats even more dangerous.

FREE STATE GUARD CAMERON DABNEY (14) STRUGGLES TO SHOOT over defender Chris Birzer (51) during Free State’s game against Blue Valley West on Tuesday at FSHS. BVW won, 61-49.

Kansas University junior power forward Thomas Robinson has watched Kansas State’s basketball team on television this season ... and also studied the Wildcats in person. He and teammates Elijah Johnson and Travis Releford were among the 16,685 fans who witnessed the Cats’ 71-58 victory over Alabama on Dec. 17 in Kansas City’s Sprint Center. Releford’s brother, Trevor, starts at point guard for the Crimson Tide. “I feel like they’re playing like they have something to prove, which is all SUNFLOWER good,” Robinson said of the Wild- SHOWDOWN cats, who take a 11-1 record into today’s Who: Kansas Big 12 conference State (11-1) vs. opener against 10-3 Kansas (10-3) KU. When: 7 toTip is 7 p.m., in night Allen Fieldhouse. “They are a Where: Allen tough team. I have Fieldhouse respect for them. TV: Big 12 At the same time I Network want to beat them. (Knology We’ll see (today),” channels 15, 215) Robinson added. The Wildcats enter with a No. 23 national ranking in their first year without standout guard Jacob Pullen, who is now playing for Angelico Biella in Italy. “They’re more dangerous. They’re not dependent on one person scoring for them. Now it’s more of an equal opportunity thing,” Robinson said, noting he left Sprint Center especially impressed with Thomas Gipson (7.1 rebounds per game), Jamar Samuels (7.2 rpg) and Jordan Henriquez (5.7 rpg). “It’s easier to stop one player than 11.” The Wildcats once again seem to have taken on the personality of fiery coach Frank Martin. KSU

When Charlie Weis was introduced as the new football coach at Kansas University in early December, he was asked how much he knew about the KU program. His answer? “I knew that they were 2-10,” he said. Either Weis was not being completely honest at the time, or he’s a fast learner. That much is obvious based on the two positions Weis has put the most emphasis on upgrading during his first month on the job. Throughout the past two seasons, KU had two glaring weaknesses that kept the Jayhawks from being competitive with most of the teams on their schedule. The first was quarterback, and college football fans across the country already are well aware of the improvement Weis has inspired at that position. Former Notre Dame quarterback Dayne Crist will be eligible to play out the final year of his career in 2012 and BYU transfer Jake Heaps will first be

available to play as a junior in 2013. Beyond the most visible position on the field, Weis has attacked the defensive line, where KU was undersized, overmatched and lacking depth. With junior-college recruits Keon Stowers and Ty McKin-

ney firmly committed to KU, that might not be the case heading into next season. Stowers, 6-foot-3, 273 pounds, has played defensive end for much of his college career at Georgia Military College. But the KU coaching staff already has talked about moving Stowers inside. “From the first time I ever even talked to a KU coach (Reggie Mitchell), the first thing that we talked about was the weakness on the D-line and the opportunity that I had to come in and play,” Stowers said. “We talked a lot about me putting on about 15 more pounds, getting up to 295 and playing (defensive tackle). That shouldn’t be a problem for me. I was playing at 285 in the spring.” Stowers said his size was the one thing that Weis went on and on about when he first talked to his new head coach. “When he first called me, he said, ‘Dang, I love your size,’” Stowers recalled. “And he was sizing me up. That was pretty cool.” Please see FOOTBALL, page 4B

SUGAR BOWL

Michigan survives Tech in OT, 23-20 NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Brendan Gibbons drilled a 37-yard field goal down the middle in overtime to lift No. 13 Michigan to a 23-20 victory over 17th-ranked Virginia Tech in the Sugar Bowl on Tuesday night. The victory capped an impressive debut season for head coach Brady Hoke, who has led the Wolverines (11-2) back to prominence with a BCS bowl victory. Denard Robinson highlighted an otherwise unspectacular night with touchdown passes of 45 and 18 yards to Junior Hemingway. Virginia Tech (11-3) had more than double Michigan’s total yards, 377-184, and had 22 first downs to Michigan’s 12 but settled for four field goals in regulation by third-string kicker Justin Myer. However, Myer was unable to connect on his fifth try from 37 yards away in the opening possession of overtime. Robinson finished 9 for 21 for 117 yards passing and threw an interception. He rushed 13 times for a seasonlow 13 yards. Virginia Tech first-year starter

touchdown on a 1-yard keeper that tied the game at 17 — after a two-point conversion — early in the fourth quarter. Virginia Tech senior receiver Danny Coale, who ranks second all-time for the Hokies in catches and yards receiving, had eight catches for 117 yards, and nearly made a spectacular diving catch for a touchdown in overtime. Coale held on to the ball for what was initially ruled a score, but the play was overturned on video review, which showed the receiver narrowly landed on the sideline. The result of that third-down play forced Tech to try for Myer’s failed field goal.

Chiefs hope to get healthy in offseason Associated Press Sports Writer

KANSAS CITY, MO. — Every once in a while, Tony Moeaki would try to slip an extra 10 pounds onto the leg press, or try to squeeze out a couple more leg curls when nobody was looking. It was a competition, after all. Or at least the only outlet for his competitive fire. The Kansas City Chiefs tight end tore the ACL in his left knee during the preseason, forcing him to have surgery and spend the past four months doing grueling rehab work. But he wasn’t alone in this often-solitary endeavor, not by a longshot. To the Chiefs’ dismay, he wound up having plenty of company. Pro Bowl safety Eric Berry went down with the exact same injury during the Chiefs’ season-opening loss to Buffalo, and All-Pro running back Jamaal Charles followed suit in Week 2 at Detroit — three of the team’s brightest young stars left to rehab a debilitating injury while the team pressed on without them. “I was the first one to do it,� Moeaki said, “so I was there to answer questions at first, but we’re all at the same level, pretty much. It’s been real nice working with them.� It’ll be even nicer when they’re ready to play again. The Chiefs ended up 7-9 during a rollercoaster year that included plenty of highs — a four-game winning streak, the only victory over the Green Bay Packers — and stomach-churning lows, such as two defeats by a combined 89-10 to start the season, and the firing of coach Todd Haley after a penalty-filled 37-10 loss to the New York Jets in which he earned his own unsportsmanlike conduct flag. Along the way, the Chiefs also lost linebacker Brandon Siler to a torn Achilles and Pro Bowl quarterback Matt Cassel to an injury to his throwing hand. They’re all expected to be back next season. Cassel was back throwing passes by the end of the year, though his place on injured reserve meant he wouldn’t have been able to help down the stretch. And the trio of torn ACLs has recovered nicely, which means Moeaki, Berry and Charles should be ready by the start of April minicamps. “They’re all making good progress, they’re all rehabbing,� said interim coach Romeo Crennel, who is expected to learn soon whether he’ll get the permanent job. “I’ve been told they’re on schedule as far as their rehab goes. Whether that’s footballready or not, I can’t say that right now.� Charles may have been the biggest loss. The fourth-year pro was coming off a breakout season in which he ran for 1,467 yards and caught 45 passes for 468 yards. Without him, the Chiefs struggled to run the ball with any effectiveness, the aging legs of Thomas Jones and special teams standout Jackie Battle unable to pick up the slack. Kansas City wound up in the middle of the pack in rushing, but with only five TDs on the ground. Moeaki caught 47 passes for 556 yards during his rookie season, giving the Chiefs a viable threat off the line of scrimmage.

Chargers keep Turner, Smith SAN DIEGO — San Diego Chargers President Dean Spanos didn’t feel he had to issue any ultimatums when he made the unpopular decision to bring back coach Norv Turner and general manager A.J. Smith despite the team’s missing the playoffs for the second

straight season. The Chargers haven’t been winning enough lately, which is why Spanos was forced to decide the future of his top football men. The Chargers are 17-16 since the end of the 2009 season, including an embarrassing home playoff loss to the New York Jets in January 2010 that was the Chargers’ last postseason appearance.

Dolphins interview Fisher DAVIE, FLA. — Jeff Fisher landed at the Miami Dolphins’ complex Tuesday. Now the question is whether the Dolphins will land Fisher. Fisher interviewed for their head coaching job Tuesday, arriving via owner Stephen Ross’ helicopter. He flew off several hours later. Fisher is believed to be the Dolphins’ top choice, and Ross is willing to pay big money, but competition from other NFL teams may be fierce.

Angelo out as Bears’ GM LAKE FOREST, ILL. — Chicago Bears general manager Jerry Angelo has been fired following a team collapse marked by injuries to Jay Cutler and Matt Forte and a drug scandal involving receiver Sam Hurd. Tuesday’s announcement ends Angelo’s 11-year reign in which the Bears reached one Super Bowl and advanced to another NFC championship game. He leaves with a questionable draft record and an inability to fill glaring holes, particularly on offense.

Crisp agrees to deal with A’s OAKLAND, CALIF. — Free-agent center fielder Coco Crisp agreed to a two-year contract to return to the Athletics, filling one key void in the Oakland outfield heading into the 2012 season. A person with knowledge of the negotiations on Tuesday confirmed Crisp would return to the A’s, a deal worth $14 million first reported by ESPN. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the team hadn’t made a formal announcement and details were still being finalized.

BIRMINGHAM, ALA. — Gene Bartow, who succeeded John Wooden at UCLA and later began UAB’s athletic program, has died, UAB officials said. He was 81. Bartow, who was the president of the company that owns the NBA’s Memphis Grizzlies and FedEx Forum, died Tuesday evening at his home in Birmingham, Ala., after a battle with stomach cancer, said university spokesman Norm Reilly. “Coach Bartow is a beloved figure in college basketball and in the lives of many players and fans,� said UAB athletic director Brian Mackin in a statement. “He was a great man Bartow and dedicated leader who set a standard of excellence for UAB athletics.� The school had been preparing for Saturday’s Bartow Classic, a basketball game between UAB and Memphis that raises money for the Coach Gene Bartow Fund for Cancer Research. He was diagnosed with stomach cancer in April 2009. Bartow was one of the winningest NCAA Division I basketball coaches with 647 wins over 34 seasons. He was inducted into the National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame in 2009 and UAB renamed its basketball arena in his honor in 1997. He succeeded Wooden as UCLA’s coach in 1976 and led the Bruins to the Final Four but left after two seasons to start AlabamaBirmingham’s program, expanding it under his tenure as athletic director to feature 17 sports. As UAB’s basketball coach from 1978-96, he led the Blazers to seven straight NCAA tournament appearances. He retired as athletic director in 2000.

Free State boys fall behind early, lose 61-49 By Benton Smith basmith@ljworld.com

The winter break didn’t help Free State High’s boys basketball team shake a recurring problem. As has been the case in other losses this season, the Firebirds played up to coach Chuck Law’s standards for parts of Tuesday night’s home game against Blue Valley West. However, lapses cost FSHS in a 61-49 setback that extended its losing streak to four games. Playing for the first time since Dec. 16, Free State (24) kept within striking distance of the Jaguars (6-0) until about midway through the third quarter. With a 9-2 run highlighted by a steal and one-handed jam by BVW senior forward Brett McMakin, the visitors took control. While that stretch gave the Jaguars separation, Law lamented his team’s inability to do more damage earlier in the game. Free State was dismal in the first quarter, hitting just one of its 11 fieldgoal attempts and shot 5-for22 in the first half — senior guard Brett Frantz hit three of those shots, while junior Kyle McFarland and senior Cameron Dabney accounted for the other two baskets. The Firebirds finished the game shooting 12-for-40 from the floor (30 percent). Law said some of that was West’s stellar man-to-man defense and some of it was Free State missing shots it usually makes. “Everybody tends to focus on what happens in the last few minutes of the game or whatever,” Law said. “We had plenty of opportunities in the first half to either have that thing tied or maybe even have a lead in the first half.” Instead, FSHS trailed 22-16 at the break. McFarland, who scored 10 points, said it was not the pace the Firebirds prefer to play. “They were just running their offense, doing what they like to do — kind of slowing it down,” the junior forward said. “And we like to get up and down the court, so they kind of controlled the game.” McFarland, Frantz (11 points) and Dabney (11 points off the bench) all scored in double figures, and Law

(Blue Valley West is) a team that you have to do everything right against. When you let your guard down, they’re gonna do what they do exceptionally well.” — Free State High boys basketball coach Chuck Law

thought Free State played well for roughly 24 minutes in the game, but the coach said BVW exploited the Firebirds at other times. “They’re a team that you have to do everything right against,” Law said. “When you let your guard down, they’re gonna do what they do exceptionally well.” Blue Valley West entered the fourth quarter with a 40-26 lead, and Free State chipped away at its deficit by drawing fouls, stopping the clock and getting to the foul line. McFarland said the Firebirds were doing anything they could to try and mount a comeback instead of focusing on the negative. “The only thing we could do was make it closer,” he said. By connecting on 16 of its first 18 free throws in the fourth, FSHS didn’t allow BVW to extend its lead further, but it ultimately didn’t make a difference in the loss as the Firebirds also committed a number of fouls late while going for steals in the final minutes. The teams combined to shoot 44 free throws in the last eight minutes. By the time Firebirds sophomore Cole Moreano hit a three-pointer and fellow

Law said comebacks are hard to come by against the Jaguars. “They’re a team you absolutely can’t play from behind against,” the coach said.

Veritas girls play tough but lose 38-31 By Corey Thibodeaux cthibodeaux@ljworld.com

EUDORA — Before the holiday break, the Veritas Christian School girls basketball team had concerns about its toughness. Even though Veritas lost to Topeka Cornerstone Tuesday night, 38-31, at the Eudora Recreation Center, Eagles coach Kevin Shelton said the girls showed a toughness that they had been lacking. “We took a step forward from where we were before the break,” Shelton said. The Eagles didn’t let the longer Saints players dominate the boards or get points in the paint. Veritas came away from the game with the total rebounding edge, 36-24. Senior Ellen Phillips went off for 13 points and 14 rebounds. Junior Kristen Finger only had five points but grabbed 13 rebounds. Cornerstone (7-1) had beaten a number of teams that dismantled Veritas (26) earlier this season, but the Eagles played physical while holding the Saints’ leading scorer to seven points on 1-for-10 shooting. But other players were scoring on their open looks while the Eagles were not. “Their guards made some shots. Good teams do,” Shelton said. “But we controlled the ball better and didn’t get frustrated with the press.” The offense was more functional than the last couple games, but a couple of turnovers led to easy baskets for Cornerstone. The Eagles were down six or seven for most of the second half until a late spurt made the game interesting. With eight seconds left, Veritas junior Joy Brooks missed a three-pointer that would have made it a onepossession game.

Regardless, the coaches were proud of how the team bounced back from break. “I thought we held our own tonight,” Shelton said. Veritas’ next game will be at 6:15 p.m. on Friday at home, hosting Topeka Heritage. Veritas 6 7 6 12—31 Topeka Cornerstone 8 11 6 13—38 VERITAS (31) Ellen Phillips 5-6 3-5 13, Madison Bennett 1-7 1-2 3, Brittany Rask 1-5 2-2 4, Alison Dover 1-1 0-1 2, Kristen Finger 1-5 3-6 5, Joy Brooks 1-6 2-4 4; Veritas – 10-30 11-20 31.

Three points: Veritas: None. Cornerstone: None. Turnovers: Veritas -17, Cornerstone - 8. Shooting Percentage: Veritas: 30 Cornerstone: 30.

Veritas boys 51, Topeka Cornerstone 37 The Veritas boys had a habit of starting games off slow and making up for it with explosive second halves. Senior Elijah Penny decided to correct that problem in practice. “When we’re doing drills,” he said, “I give it my all to get it 100 percent perfect, basically.” Penny, a third-year starter who has led the team in scoring for each of those years, showed that his effort has paid off by leading Veritas to a 51-37 victory against To-

peka Cornerstone Tuesday night. He was out of town during the team’s last game, but his presence was felt this time around, as he finished with 17 points. Veritas (5-3) and Cornerstone (1-6) started the game with a back-and-forth scoring duel, and each team missed only a few shots in the first quarter. The Eagles led by two at half, but each team was looking good enough to win. “I kind of thought it would be close the whole game,” Veritas coach Gary Hammer said. Then the Eagles outscored the Saints 15-3 in the third quarter, with plays on each end of the floor. Cornerstone’s Dawsyn Birtell was the most aggressive player on the court to start the game, but by the end of the game, Veritas freshman Caleb Holland’s defense had gotten to him. Birtell finished the game with 17 points. There was a lot of firepower to contend with in the first half, but Veritas stuck to the fundamentals. “I was worried about it at first,” Penny said of Cornerstone’s ability to score, “but I know my team plays good defense.” Veritas will play host to Topeka Heritage at 7:45 p.m. on Friday.

Kansas bowling team earns No. 18 national rank

‘Hawks kick off conference play against ‘Horns Basketball J-W Staff Reports

The Kansas University men’s bowling team is ranked 18th nationally out of 156 schools, according to Colleg-

By Benton Smith basmith@ljworld.com

Kansas University’s women’s basketball team is about to encounter its biggest challenge of the season. The Jayhawks have jumped out to an 11-1 record in their non-conference schedule, but when they play at No. 23 Texas at 8 tonight, they open Big 12 play with their first game against a ranked opponent. KU, which has won four in a row since losing, 80-76, at Alabama on Dec. 4, is 1-1 on the road this season with a Nov. 20 victory at Wake Forest. Coach Bonnie Henrickson said the Jayhawks have been great at practice since returning from their holiday break, and she can tell the players’ attention to details and energy have picked up in anticipation of facing a UT team that has won four straight match-ups with Kansas. “I really feel good about the progress we’ve made and we’re excited about the opportunity,” Henrickson said. The Longhorns (10-2) enter the Big 12 opener for both programs on a five-game winning streak. Their only losses this season came to perennial national powers No. 4 Stanford and No. 6 Tennessee. KU junior forward Carolyn Davis, who leads the nation in field goal percentage (68.1), said knocking off Texas won’t be easy. “They’ll be a really physical team, and they’ll be a lot different from what we’ve been seeing,” Davis said. Similar to KU’s starting backcourt of Angel Goodrich, Natalie Knight and Monica Engelman, the Longhorns start a three-guard lineup: Chassidy Fussell, Ashleigh Fontenette and Yvonne Anderson. Henrickson said speed is one of UT’s biggest strengths. “They’re really, really good in transition, and that’s where they got us last year,” the eighth-year KU coach said. Fussell, a UT sophomore guard, has looked like an All-Big 12 player, Henrickson said. Fussell leads Texas with 16.7 points per game. The Kansas coach also was wary of Longhorns sophomore forward Cokie Reed, who missed last season with a right-foot injury. Reed scored 18 points off the bench in an 85-82, double-overtime victory for Texas on Feb. 13, 2010, at Allen Fieldhouse. “She’s a big kid who can do a lot of damage in front of the

In the Jayhawks’ last two meetings with UT, Henrickson added, Texas has hurt KU with offensive rebounds. The Longhorns have averaged 18 boards on the offensive glass and 13.5 second-chance points in their previous two victories over Kansas. KU junior point guard Goodrich (second in the nation with 8.1 assists a game) said the Jayhawks have been playing well, and they will need to keep that up at Texas. “We’ve got to stick together,” Goodrich said. “It’s on the road, so it’s only gonna be us against them and all of their fans.” A win at Texas could be a step in the right direction for Kansas, which finished 6-10 in the Big 12 last season. “With them being ranked, it’d be a big win for us,” Goodrich said, “because we haven’t played a ranked team yet.” Henrickson downplayed the importance of beating a ranked opponent, citing the Big 12’s overall strength. “In this league, it’s a big statement to win on the road, anybody you play,” Henrickson said. Davis, who leads the Jayhawks with 17.4 points a game, said opening the conference schedule in the win column would be “really great” for the team’s confidence. The Jayhawks last beat Texas, 50-49, at UT on Feb. 10, 2007.

has averaged 41.8 rebounds a game to its opponents’ 34.7. KU outboards its foes, 38.5 to 30.5. “They definitely crash the boards better than a lot of teams in the country,” said Robinson, the only player in the Big 12 to average a double double at 17.7 points and 12.2 boards per game. “They are a good 50/50 team,” he added of securing the basketball when it is up for grabs. “It’s going to be a man’s game. Whoever wins most of the 50-50 balls has a lot better chance of winning. “Me personally, it’s definitely a side I bring,” he added of being willing to scrap for rebounds. “That’s what I live off of, coming down and rebounding. I’ll take the challenge.” The 6-10, 237-pound Robinson said this one could come down simply to which team wants it the most. “We want to start the conference right. Now we’re playing for keeps,” Robinson said. “I mean it’s definitely for respect, but we’ve got something to protect. That’s our conference title. We’ve got seven (in a row). We want to make it eight.” For KU to take care of business at home before heading to Oklahoma (Saturday) and Texas Tech (Wednesday), it’ll have to beat a squad that has outscored foes 77.2 points a game to 61.7. KU averages 76 points and allows 59.8. “They care. They care a lot,” KU junior guard Elijah Johnson said of what he learned by watching the Wildcats in Sprint Center. “They’ve got a tough coach over there. He chews them out. They got players who go the extra mile, who set the tone on the court, ones who are very vocal.” Four Wildcats score in double figures. Rodney McGruder leads the way at 12.5 ppg, followed by Will Spradling (11.8), Samuels (11.8) and Gipson (10.4). “They are long, athletic and scrappy. It’s K-State, just like always,” Johnson said. “They rebound pretty well.” As far as intangibles ... “If anything, they don’t have that leader any more,” Johnson said of Pullen, who scored 21 in a 90-66 loss to KU last Jan. 29 in Allen, then exploded for 38 in a 84-68 win over KU on Feb. 14 in Manhattan. “We’ve still got our leader, Tyshawn (Tay-

McKinney, who played the past two seasons at Trinity Valley Community College in Athens, Texas, committed to KU after Turner Gill was fired and before Weis was hired. He developed a strong relationship with Buddy Wyatt, who coached the defensive line under Gill and will have the same job in 2012, KU officials announced Tuesday. With Toben Opurum and Keba Agostinho returning at defensive end and John Williams expected back from injury, the two juco tackles could add depth and talent to a position in desperate need of some help. Add to those headliners, defensive linemen Pat Lewandowski, a sophomoreto-be, who played in 11 games and recorded one sack and three QB hurries in 2011, Kevin Young (nine games) and freshmen Ben Goodman (red-shirt) and Michael Reynolds (10 games), and it’s easy to see that, with new faces and a little experience, KU’s D-Line, at the very least, will look a lot different in 2012. “When I was on my visit, I got real close with Ben Goodman,” Stowers said. “He was my host, and we’ve been talk-

lor), and we’ve got some other leaders on our team. I like our experience on the floor. We’re ahead of them. Honestly, there’s not too many teams I can say that about. I feel like we’re ahead of them as far as experience, as far as leadership and having some players who have played in some big games. I don’t feel we lack in that area,” Johnson added. K-State’s only loss was to West Virginia, 85-80, in double overtime, on Dec. 8 in Wichita. The Wildcats have won at Virginia Tech and also downed Southern Illinois, UTEP and Long Beach State at the Rainbow Classic in Hawaii. The Cats routed LBSU, 77-60; KU beat the same opponent, 88-80, in Allen. KU coach Bill Self enters with a healthy amount of respect for the new-look Wildcats.

“I think they are probably more balanced now without Jacob,” Self said, “but I watched Jacob in person get 38 (points). I thought they were pretty good that night. From my standpoint, I’m glad he’s graduated and gone. “I do think that there’s more balance now, and guys seem to accept their roles. Usually when you don’t have a go-to guy like they had in Jacob, it makes it hard to guard because teams don’t just focus in on one guy. I think on the offensive glass ... they do that as well as anybody,” Self added. “A big key is whether or not we can keep them off the glass. Sometimes their best offense is missed shots, which is a compliment to them, because that’s a testament to how hard they play.” Playing a rugged team like KSU certainly makes for an intriguing opener in the Big 12.

the Fighting Irish wide receivers coach and recruiting coordinator. In 2009, he was promoted to assistant head coach for offense. In that role, he led offensive staff meetings when head coach Charlie Weis was not present, and later served as the team’s interim head coach. During his time at Notre Dame, Ianello mentored 2009 Biletnikoff winner, Golden Tate, and also coached Jeff Samardzija, who was a Biletnikoff finalist in 2005 and 2006 and an All-American in 2006. As the Irish recruiting coordinator, he directed three consecutive top-10 recruiting classes from 2006-08. He also landed on Rivals.com’s list of the nation’s 25 best recruiters each year at Notre Dame. Wyatt, one of three coaches who remained active for the Jayhawks following the firing of Turner Gill, will keep his spot as defensive line coach but no longer holds the co-defensive coordinator tag. Wyatt came to Kansas prior to the 2010 season, after spending 2008 and 2009 at Texas A&M. Wyatt’s other stops during a 22-year coaching stint include: TCU (1991), Minnesota (1992-95), Oklahoma State (1996), Northwestern (1997-98), Colorado (1999), Alabama (2003-06) and Nebraska (2007).

Johnson invited to EastWest Shrine Game Former KU linebacker Steven Johnson, a graduating senior from Media, Pa., who led the Jayhawks in tackles in each of the past two seasons, has accepted an invitation to play in the annual East-West Shrine Game, which will be played Jan. 21 at Tropicana Field, in St. Petersburg, Fla. Johnson becomes the fourth Jayhawk in the past three seasons to accept an invitation to the longestrunning college all-star game and the 48th Jayhawk to receive an invite in school history. Johnson led the Big 12 Conference in tackles (93) and finished the season ranked 16th in the nation, with 124. Johnson, who earned both second team and third team all-league honors following KU’s 2-10 season, also finished in the top 25 nationally in solo tackles with 66. As always, proceeds from the game will go to benefit Shriners Hospitals for Children. This year’s game will be televised on the NFL Network. McCay sets KU visit Former Bishop Miege High wide receiver Justin McCay will transfer from Oklahoma and appears to have narrowed his choices to Kansas and Kansas State.

Five other bowlers have 190 averages or better: Alex Hardman (197.7), Matt Bellus (194.6), Nick Campfield (193.3), Dylan Burns (192.4) and Jessy Bauer (190.4).

“It’s a toss-up game whenever it’s K-State versus Kansas,” KU’s Johnson said. “We don’t hide from anybody,” Robinson noted. “This is how we’ve got to start, then this is how we’ve got to start. I’d rather come out of the gate running than walking to somewhere.” O The race: Self said he could envision a record of 14-4 winning the Big 12: “We’ve won a few times at 13-3, so 14-4 may not get it outright. I think that would be a great record in this league with a chance to win it. The league is so much better than anybody thought it was coming into it,” Self said. O Rebounding: On center Jeff Withey being used just eight minutes in Saturday’s rout of North Dakota: “I’m not mad at Jeff or the other guys (on bench). I’m just a little perturbed,” Self said with a smile. “I don’t think we rebound the ball like we should. The reason we make emphasis of certain things is for Withey games like this game. If you let it slide against other people, then the chances are that when you really have to be a great rebounding, physical team, chances are you can’t just turn it on and off. It has to be a staple of who you are. Jeff is going to be very important in this game, but others are (as well).” O Boot: KU junior Releford has been wearing a boot to protect a bruised right foot. KU coach Self said Releford is OK and should be able to play tonight. O Frank Martin on KU: “I don’t think anybody in the country would have an undefeated record if they’ve played the schedule that Kansas has played. Kansas has lined up and played anybody and everybody, and anywhere.” Of the game, he added: “We’re ready to go. Does that mean we have a chance to win? I’ve got no idea. But our guys have been good. They’ve answered the bell every time. What’s going to happen in Big 12 play?” Martin asked. “I don’t think anybody knows.” The Associated Press contributed to this report.

McCay, a red-shirt freshman, who played in just three games this season because of injury, has received his release from the Sooners. The 6-2, 209 wideout told Jon Kirby, of JayhawkSlant.com, that he would visit KU this week, beginning with an appearance at tonight’s KU-Kansas State men’s basketball game at Allen Fieldhouse. Missouri also may remain in the mix for McCay, a former five-star prospect who was the top-ranked player in Kansas according to Rivals. com during his senior year of high school.

Dieter picks SMU Three-star wide receiver and Max Preps first team All-American, Gehrig Dieter, announced Tuesday, on Twitter, that he will play his college football at SMU. “Just announced at the #smperfibowl #SMU pony up!!,” Dieter’s Tweet read. Dieter, a 6-foot-3, 200-pound playmaker from Washington High in South Bend, Ind., chose SMU over Kansas. Dieter finished his senior season at Washington with 82 receptions, 2,181 yards and 24 touchdowns. He set several national high school records this season, including most receiving yards in a game when he racked up 447 yards against Elkhart Central.

Start the new year with fresh outlook on life Q:

As we start the new year, do you have any suggestions on how to kick it off on the right foot?

Cooking Q&A

A:

2012 — It’s a new year — and for me, a new name and a new life. A fresh new year is here — a year to live and laugh and give! Last year I filed away the Winter newsletter from the Cardiovascular Consultants Inc. because the lead article made a lot of sense. In the article, entitled “Secrets to Longevity” by James J. O’Keefe, M.D., he first shared what the oldest living person at that time, Walter Breuning, considered the secrets were to longevity. They included staying active in body and mind, practicing moderation, and treating others with kindness and respect. O’Keefe added more tips to that list on how to live a long and full life. In brief, here’s what he shared.

Susan Johnson sjohnson@oznet.ksu.edu

Chill out. Deal with stress by discovering and cultivating healthy coping strategies. Work hard, be nice and play hard, too. If you don’t make time to play, you will have a more difficult time working hard and being nice on a day-to-day basis. Enjoy music, dance and sing. Inject some euphoria into your life — and then make it a part of your daily routine. Learn to say no. You can’t do it all, nor can you please

everyone. Set your priorities, making sure that you set aside some time to invest in your own health and happiness. Be curious. Never stop exploring and discovering. Strive to be open-minded. Learn how to do something new and be adventurous. Be active every day. Move every chance you get. Decide on a variety of physical activities that you enjoy and schedule them into your daily life. Nothing rejuvenates your mind and body like exuberant play. Make it a priority to do something physical that feels like fun every day. Don’t smoke. If you do smoke, quit this self-destructive habit as soon as you can. Don’t be afraid to seek help and support to do it. Shake your salt habit. The average American consumes 4,000 milligrams of sodium per day. Reduce daily sodium intake to less than 2,300 milligrams and further reduce intake to 1,500 mg if you are

ONCE THE PORK in this German pork stew is tender, it gets shredded for a pulled pork effect.

Pork stew both hearty, healthy By Alison Ladman For The Associated Press

It’s winter. It’s cold. You want something hearty. But you’re also trying to eat better and don’t want to ruin your diet by diving into a cream-laden casserole. A lean stew is just the thing you need. Instead of being heavy, it’s hearty with virtuous veggies, lean protein and warm seasonings. We start with a pork tenderloin, sear it for maximum flavor, then simmer it in a flavorful broth. Once the pork is tender, we shred it for a pulled pork effect, then add in filling and nutritious vegetables. Sweet potatoes load on the fiber and vitamin A, while cabbage packs yet more fiber, as well as vitamins. By the time you throw in the leeks, onion and celery, you’ve got a super healthy and satisfying stew. To top the whole thing off, we add a dollop of calciumrich yogurt topping inspired by thousand island dressing to add a little touch of tangy creaminess.

51 and older, African-American or have hypertension, diabetes, or chronic kidney disease. The best way to avoid sodium is to eat more fruits, vegetables, nuts and berries, avoid processed foods and cook at home. Cut excess calories. Reduce calorie intake to match your energy expenditure. It really is all about calories in versus calories out! Stay connected. Devote time and energy to stay tightly connected to your network of family and friends. They will always be your most important assets for emotional well-being, physical health and even your longevity. Try to spend more time with the people who make you happy and make you laugh. Avoid hanging around depressed, rude, pessimistic and meanspirited people. Attitudes and behaviors are contagious. Hang around upbeat individuals so you can catch

their enthusiasm and zest for life. Avoid being overexposed to people with toxic outlooks on life. Be optimistic and have faith. Make it a priority to do something kind and considerate for someone else, whether it is a family member, a friend or a stranger. Think about growing a garden (even a container garden will do). Growing plants will revitalize your own health and well-being. If you drink alcohol, do so in moderation. If you can limit yourself to not more than one drink daily for women, or one to two drinks daily for men, it can have a positive influence on your health. Anything in excess of this will worsen your physical, emotional and social well-being in direct proportion to the amount of alcohol consumed. As O’Keefe states in another article in the same

newsletter, “The key to life: more experiences, less stuff. Studies show that people who spend more of their discretionary income on interesting experiences rather than material things tend to be happier in the long run. If you aren’t careful, the materialistic frenzy created by American-style capitalism can lead you down a path where you find yourself feeling as though your possessions possess you, rather than the other way around.” Remember, health, happiness and success do not just happen by accident. In 2012, take what life throws your way and do your best! Wishing you and yours a very Happy New Year. — Susan Johnson is an Extension agent in family and consumer sciences with K-State Research and Extension-Douglas County, 2110 Harper St. She can be reached at 843-7058.

Cardamom: What it is and how to use it Cupcakes By J.M. Hirsch

CONTINUED FROM PAGE 8B

Associated Press

The typical grocer sells some 50,000 different products. The typical shopper buys the same 264 over and over again. The point of this column? To persuade you to take a second look at some of the 49,736 foods that don’t usually land in your cart. Cardamom, for example. This spice aisle resident is a master of blurring the sweetsavory line. Yet most people know it only (if at all) for the rather dull cookies named after it. But cardamom is way more than a cookie, and it belongs on the dinner table as much as in desserts. First, the basics. Cardamom is a seed that is related to ginger and originated in India (both of which explain why it makes frequent appearances in Indian sauces, chutneys and rubs). The taste is citrusy and floral, as well as warm and peppery. Cardamom is sold whole (black seeds in a greyishgreen pod) and ground (a fine greyish-blue powder). While the flavor is best when you get whole pods and grind them as needed, raise your hand if you can admit that’s too much trouble. To demo how easy it is to use an overlooked ingredient like cardamom to overhaul your weeknight cooking, I created this simple roasted chicken and potatoes. Don’t want to do thighs? Use breasts, or even the whole bird. The point? Getting big flavor from everyday cooking can be easy. And the secret ingredient often is right in front of you. For more ideas for using cardamom, check out the Off

Hot drinks perfect antidote to cold weather By Rosemary Ponnekanti McClatchy Newspapers

TACOMA, WASH. — Hot pumpkin toddy. Hot buttered rum. Spiced latte. Mulled wine. Are you feeling toasty already? It’s the season for warming up inside with hot drinks, and Tacoma bars are already offering some fine ones on the menu. But they’re just as easy to make at home — and that way you don’t even have to de-ice the car. “In a colder climate, it’s a little more comforting to have something warm in your hand, “ says Rodel Borromeo, executive chef at Social bar on Tacoma’s waterfront, where the drinks menu has just moved on from hot pumpkin toddies to hot buttered rums. “(Our) hot buttered rum is moving pretty well.” Hot alcoholic drinks go back a long way, of course: hot toddies crop up in Charles Dickens and Jack London; hot negus (mulled wine) in Jane Austen. The hot toddy, made of sugar, spice, citrus, alcohol and hot water, is a traditional way to cure a cold — or at least, cheer yourself up while you’re suffering. Hot buttered rum, with its mixture of creamed butter and sugar, spices, rum and hot water, is also soothing. And there’s something about frothy milk or cream that will warm up anyone. But Tacoma and Olympia drinks chefs have ways of spicing up the traditional recipes that will make them burn even brighter. “We add a bit of cayenne to give a bit more warmth to the experience, “ says Borromeo, of Social’s hot buttered rum recipe, where the recipe also calls for a little bit of Bailey’s Irish Cream to cream out the drink. Cayenne also spices up hot milk drinks such as cocoa, chai or coffee lattes. Or you could try a different spice mix. Buck’s 5th Avenue Spices in Olympia has a chutney mix of ground cardamom, cinnamon, ginger and black pepper that their drinks expert, Brooke Ahnemann, likes to sprinkle on hot cocoa or coffee. Other options include dusting a creamy milk drink with bittersweet chocolate powder, and Ahnemann likes a latte sprinkled with a bit of Bucks’ espresso-flavored salt.

Mulled drinks Not into milk? Try wine. Mulling wine goes back centuries with many names around Europe: think Nordic Glogg, or German Gluhwein. You can buy mulling wine spices from stores such as Buck’s, but putting your own mix together is also easy: The usual ingredients are whole cloves, cinnamon sticks, whole allspice and a bit of orange peel. Wrap in a cheesecloth bag or just float them in the wine and scoop them out when you’re done. Boil the wine with sugar to taste. But how much spice? “Everyone has different tastes, “ says Ahnemann. “I usually recommend people start with a tablespoon of spice mix per bottle of wine, and add more if they like it.” Another way to get extra flavor is add a sweet liqueur such as Triple Sec instead of sugar, Ahnemann suggests. Need something nonalcoholic? You can mull cider, too. Ahnemann uses the Buck’s combination of spices, plus some lemon peel and dried rosebuds for floral fragrance. Or try making hot buttered rum without the rum, adding cream soda instead — you’ll get something rather like Harry Potter’s butterbeer, sweet and rich. Toddy tradition Then there’s toddy. The story goes that this sweet, lemony alcoholic drink was brought to England by someone in the East India trading company from India, where people still make strong, distilled toddy from palm tree sap. Hot toddy’s easy enough to make – just mix a little sugar or honey, a little spice (cinnamon, or cloves), a dash of lemon juice and a shot of whisky or rum to some hot water. But if you want to make it a little different, try Borromeo’s version, which just went off the seasonal menu at Social: roasted pumpkin, mashed into a puree with honey and simple syrup. Being a puree, it’ll separate if you leave it sitting, says Borromeo, so just stir if necessary. Finally, there’s the froth. Not all hot drinks need it — you won’t be wanting to froth mulled wine or cider — but it’s useful if you’re sprinkling spices or chocolate. The easiest way is adding whipped cream: Marcie Triner-Anderson, head bartender at Varsity Grill, uses this to

top off her popular winter special of coffee/chocolate blend spiked with peppermint schnapps and creamed vodka. Or you can whip your own milk or cream with a hand-held electric mixer, an espresso steamer or a whisk. For a party trick, and to cool down a piping hot drink, try what chai sellers in India do — pour a latte from one cup into another and back again and increasing the distance until you have a froth. (This might be something to practice over the sink first.) We may have a long, cold winter ahead of us — but think of it as a deliciously long time to whip up your own menu of hot frothy drinks. You might even cure a cold or two as well.

Holiday-In-A-Cup (cold drink) Rumple Minze or other peppermint schnapps Frangelico Cream Ice Mix equal parts schnapps and Frangelico. Splash with cream. Serve on the rocks. Homemade Creamy Hot Chocolate 2 cups whipping cream 6 cups milk 1 teaspoon vanilla 1 (12 ounce) package milk or dark chocolate chips Garnish: Whipped cream Chocolate shavings Stir together the whipping cream, milk, vanilla, and chocolate chips in a pot. Cover and cook on low for 2 to 2 { hours, stirring occasionally, until mixture is hot and chocolate chips are melted. Stir again before serving. Garnish with whipped cream and chocolate shavings or cinnamon, as desired. Optional: Sprinkle spice mix on top such as ground cinnamon, cardamom, ginger and black pepper.

was stiff, especially because none of the chefs knew what to expect from “Wars,” which is now in its fourth season. It turned out, the four chefs were to make Sea Worldinspired cupcakes in three rounds, with a player being eliminated in each round. Fiander and her brother, Phil Burns, were knocked out in the middle round, but Fiander says she’d do it again, no question. “Absolutely, in a heartbeat. Not so much because of the exposure, which was great for business,” she says, adding that she’s had customers travel from states away after seeing the episode. “But really I’m very competitive, and I’m very proud of our cupcakes, and I would go on that show because I know that I should’ve won and I could win, and so I’d go back just to do it again with a little bit more knowledge on what that show is about.”

Moving down I-70 But Fiander doesn’t need a stint on the show to keep her busy, owning two stores has proved to be work enough. She spends each morning mixing batter and decorating cupcakes at the Topeka Billy Vanilly before heading to the Lawrence store to check in a few times per week. Because of the amount of time it took to change the Campus Cloth space into a bakery (the stoves are where the dressing rooms were, bathrooms

were added, the flooring ripped out), new Lawrence employees were able to work for an extended period in the Topeka store, something that helps put the very hands-on Fiander at ease. “I’ve been really fortunate that (they) got to pre-train here quite a bit. But it is hard. I’m not going to lie. It is hard because I invest so much of myself in the store every day, I find that I need to be in Lawrence a lot,” says Fiander, whose Topeka store won a Kansas Department of Commerce 2010 WomenOwned Business of the Year award. “I need to be out at that Lawrence store and kind of share with them my passion and how everything is to be done. To be honest, it is more of a struggle than I originally thought. But, our plan has always been to franchise.” The Lawrence operation has meant that between the two stores Fiander has created 30 jobs and produces thousands of cupcakes per day. Lawrence employee Amber Muñoz says she recognizes customers she’s been serving since starting with Fiander in the very beginning in Topeka. Having worked under Fiander for five years, she says she’s not surprised to already have “regulars” coming into the new location. Nor is she surprised at what the most popular flavor seems to be. “I think the favorite is Billy Vanilly, though,” she says. “A lot of kids like it because it has a cherry.” — Staff writer Sarah Henning can be reached at 832-7187.

Gourmet producers beef up snack tradition By Michelle Locke For The Associated Press

Everything you think you know about jerky is wrong, says Jon Sebastiani, founder and CEO of Krave gourmet jerky. “Most people when you ask them their opinion or image of jerky you get a pretty common response which is that it’s junk food; it’s gas station food; it’s dry and leathery; it’s not good for you,” he says. When made properly, none of the above is true and, in fact, “it is good for you.” Oh, you thought jerky was a fun snack to chew on while watching the football playoffs? Well, that part is true, although Sebastiani is trying to get consumers to think of jerky as something more than a between-meals stopgap and see it more as a source of nutrition and even as the basis for other dishes. “My objective here is to reintroduce the product to the American customer and present it as the healthy, good product it is and have fun with it,” he says. As football heads toward the season-ending showdowns, gourmet jerky lovers have more choices. High-end jerky is available in everything from the traditional beef to turkey, lamb, and even fish. At Epicurious.com, interest in high-end jerky, especially among men, has become so popular that the site listed Brooklyn-based King’s County Jerky in its Foodie Stocking Stuffers gift guide. And when it comes to serving tips for something like a Super Bowl party, Epicurious editor-inchief Tanya Steel recommends putting out a jerky-filled glass on the buffet along with dips,

salsas and chips — “and next to lots of water!” Sebastiani’s introduction to good food and flavors came by way of his upbringing as a member of a Northern California winemaking family. His interest in jerky came when he was training for the New York City Marathon a few years back and was eating a lot of jerky because of its low-fat, high-protein and low-carbohydrate properties. There was a moment when he realized that jerky is “this fantastic product,” but one that wasn’t necessarily being made all that fantastically. He researched the market, dominated by a handful of big players, and drew up a business plan for a different kind of jerky that would be flavorful, tender and serve as more than just a snack food. The result is a range of flavors that run from quite sweet to very spicy, made from domestic beef, pork or turkey. Signature flavors include chili-lime (beef), smoky grilled teriyaki (pork), and basil citrus (turkey). The product contains salt, but according to the company, less than the major brands. Krave’s Garlic Chili Pepper Beef, for example, has 140 mg sodium per 1 ounce serving. The jerky, distributed nationally and available from the website, includes a doublemarination process with the jerky baked in the marinade and made in small batches so more of the marinade and moisture is left in the meat. Fans can join a Krave Jerky of the Month club to receive monthly bags of jerky, newsletters and recipes incorporating jerky into everything from twice-baked potatoes to quiche.

an empire

One sweet bite at a time By Sarah Henning sarah@lawrence.com

ew Year’s Eve at my house was not full of fancy finger foods and little sandwiches with the crusts cut off. No, the way we do things is a little less highbrow. As I began to imagine a party at my house for New Year’s Eve, I thought we might have three or four couples over, make it kidfriendly, and play a little Left, Right, Center. But, as these things like this do, it grew. To 40-odd people. Out the window went my plans for prime rib and elegant side dishes. I needed to feed the masses. The drinking masses. I settled on chili, baked potatoes, hot dogs and homemade cinnamon rolls. This is stuff that can be made for relatively low cost. There’s something for everyone. Kids and adults alike can find something on that menu to enjoy, and it is filling for stomachs that might contain too much champagne. My friend Sara Jane directed me in the making of a double batch of The Pioneer Woman’s cinnamon rolls, which were divinely perfect. She also brought me two giant packs of Nathan’s Famous Hot Dogs from Restaurant Depot. People, that is like 80 hot dogs! Heaven. I baked about 25 potatoes, and made two kinds of chili: double-beef with hamburger and steak (just use a big, inexpensive top-round steak), and I thought I should have something on hand for the vegetarians who might be in attendance, so I made a pot of soy chorizo chili. I found the soy chorizo at the store recently and bought a couple of tubes because, well, I was fascinated. There are certain things I like to make with soy crumbles (even better than I like to make them with real meat), so this little product intrigued me. It was delicious. I have chosen to eat several bowls of its leftovers, even though the beefy stuff was also sitting right there, asking to be polished off. Also, it couldn’t be easier. It makes a lot and

People would just show up and stand in line to get the cupcakes. And ever since, it’s been kind of this game of playing catch-up. Can we make enough cupcakes for them?” But it did get bigger, with a single phone call. “They called in the afternoon when I had already left, and so I had these high school girls that would come in, and I guess one of them took a message saying, ‘The Food Network called. Would you be interested in being on a show?’” she says, laughing. “And I was like, ‘This would be a great reason to call me at home.’” The network tapped Fiander and Daddy Cakes to appear on the premiere episode of a brand-new show: “Cupcake Wars.” The competition Please see CUPCAKES, page 7B

Wife wants husband to spend less time at bars Annie’s Mailbox

from my sister’s destination wedding. She didn’t invite my teenage children. She arranged for the rest of the family to have free accommodations, but not me, her only sister. This wedding was a huge financial burden, and I also felt insulted. I recently learned that both of her grown children will be getting married next year — also destination weddings. They again will not be anniesmailbox@comcast.net inviting my children, which means finding places for Annie, am I overreacting, them to stay while I’m out of or does Horace need to grow town. up and start being a better What is appropriate here? husband? If this continues, I don’t want to have children with him, as it means I’ll be sitting at home with a baby while he’s off to the bars with his friends. — Iowa Dear Iowa: Having children did change Horace’s behavior because he doesn’t go to the bars while the kids are visiting. That means there is hope he will be more circumspect when you have a child at home all the time. Not every spouse objects to an occasional night out with friends. You need to decide how many such nights you can tolerate and whether Horace has a drinking problem or is prone to cheat. If the two of you cannot reach an agreement, please discuss it with a counselor. Dear Annie: I just returned

Celebrities try to fake out fans Television has become a losing battle between the fake and the real. What’s the use of concocting a scripted comedy and drama when folks would just as soon watch “Swamp Loggers”? Our 10-year reality TV binge has robbed so many would-be actors of their chance to become famous that our few remaining celebrities have banded together to retaliate by pretending to be “real” people. The result is the odd hybrid “I Get That a Lot” (7 p.m., CBS), a “Candid Camera”style series in which well-known folks slum as regular wage earners. When a normal person comes up to a celebrated face (and body) pretending to toil behind the counter at Victoria’s Secret, she inquires, “Aren’t you Pamela Anderson?” At this point, the star of “Barb Wire” denies her own identity, much to the stranger’s confusion and consternation. If you find this hilarious, stick around to watch: Pauley Perrette (“NCIS”) try her hand at dog grooming; talk show host Jerry Springer work at a deli; Olympian Apolo Ohno bag groceries at an upscale supermarket; Ty Pennington (“Extreme Makeover: Home Edition”) sell hardware; and Dr. Drew Pinsky (“Celebrity Rehab”) peddle glasses at a chain outlet. For all of their new vocations, the hardest acting “job” performed here is straddling the line between identifying with working stiffs and condescending to ordinary folk.

History has taught us that the easiest way to get cast on a reality show is to have already been cast on a reality show. I call that the “Boston Rob” rule, or the Carson Kressley protocol. Short of that, be related to somebody who already has a reality show. Bobby Deen hosts “Not My Mama’s Meals” (8 p.m., Cooking), presenting lean and healthy versions of recipes made by his famous mother, Paula Deen. Tonight, he transforms her Krispy Kreme Bread Pudding into something called Fresh Fruit Bread Pudding. Of course, being closely identified with a famous brand-name mother can lead to psychological problems, not to mention reality TV casting opportunities. Perhaps Bobby Deen should conspire with Martha Stewart’s ungrateful daughter.

The new true-crime series “Fatal Encounters” (9 p.m., ID) premieres with a grisly tale weirder than anything on “American Horror Story”: a babyobsessed stalker out to rob an expectant mother of her unborn child.

Tonight’s other highlights

Back to school on “Glee” (7 p.m., Fox).

A buy-American law runs amok on “Harry’s Law” (8 p.m., NBC).

Howie Mandel hosts “Mobbed” (8 p.m., Fox).

Phil frets about a medical test on “Modern Family” (8 p.m., ABC).

Decomposition at an art gallery raises a stink on “CSI” (9 p.m., CBS).

A boy from an outcast community vanishes on “Law & Order: SVU” (9 p.m., NBC).

The worst kind of party crasher on “Revenge” (9 p.m., ABC).

A blessed event looms on the season premiere of “Dog the Bounty Hunter” (9 p.m., A&E).

The gang on “Hot in Cleveland” (9 p.m., TV Land) looks back.

“True Life” (9 p.m., MTV) explores the pressures faced by high school wrestlers.

It’s obvious the people who can go will be the ones who can afford it. This just doesn’t seem fair to me. How should I respond? — Destination Unknown Dear Destination: You behaved well by attending your sister’s inconvenient wedding, but you do not have to impoverish yourself in order to attend the weddings of her children. A bridal couple gets to choose their wedding location. Guests get to RSVP “yes” or “no.” We recommend sending your sincere regrets and a nice gift.

JACQUELINE BIGAR’S STARS For Wednesday, Jan. 4: You easily could go overboard this year. This behavior might shake you up as you let your normal self-discipline melt away.

Dear Annie: I have been married to “Horace” for less than a year. This is his second marriage. His prior marriage was to his high school girlfriend, and they have two children together. I met Horace in my “partying” stage. He, too, enjoyed going to the bars. He actually did it quite a bit when he was married. His ex-wife didn’t enjoy going out, so he went with his friends. When I married Horace, I became a stepmother and quickly learned life wasn’t about what I wanted anymore. I put Horace and his children first. We have the kids every other weekend. Horace is a great father who loves to do things with the children when they are with us. But on weekends when we don’t have the kids, Horace still likes to go to the bars. He would love it if I went along, but I’m past that stage in my life. I enjoy going out to movies, dinner and such, but the bars don’t interest me anymore. I realize this is only twice a month, but those are the only weekends we have together without the children. I want Horace to be with me, but I don’t want to force myself on him. When he asks whether it’s OK if he goes to the bars without me, I always say it’s fine.
