Officials outraged, saddened by Boeing departure By Scott Rothschild

TOPEKA — Kansas political leaders Wednesday expressed outrage and disappointment over Boeing Co.’s announcement that it was closing its Wichita defense plant, sending more than 2,160 jobs to three other states. “No one has worked harder for the

success of Boeing than Team Kansas,” Gov. Sam Brownback said. Boeing plans to shut down the Wichita plant by the end of 2013 to cut costs. “In this time of defense budget reductions, as well as shifting customer priorities, Boeing has decided to close its operations in Wichita to reduce costs, increase efficiencies, and drive competitiveness,” said Mark Bass, vice

president and general manager for the Boeing Defense, Space & Security facility in Wichita. But less than a year ago, Kansas officials were applauding after helping Boeing secure a $35 billion contract from the U.S. Air Force to replace its refueling tankers.

Rescued snowy owl dies of its injuries

Mike Yoder/Journal-World File Photo

GARY CRAIN, a volunteer with Operation Wildlife, rescues an injured snowy owl Monday afternoon at the Jayhawk Station post office, 1901 W. 31st St. The owl has since died of its injuries.

An injured snowy owl rescued Monday near a Lawrence post office has died. On Monday afternoon visitors to the Jayhawk Station post office, 1901 W. 31st St., saw the bird fall and hit the concrete. The onlookers, who believed the bird hit a power line, called Operation Wildlife to save the bird. At that time, Operation Wildlife executive director Diane Johnson believed the snowy owl had just broken its left wing. As it turned out, the bird had suffered serious internal injuries as well. “He must have hit the power line really hard,” Johnson said. The bird was a rare find in Kansas. The breed typically nests in the Arctic tundra of the northern-most stretches of Alaska, Canada and Eurasia. For Johnson, it was just the second snowy owl she has taken care of in her 30 years at Operation Wildlife.

Boardwalk Apartment owners say insurance not paid in full Lawsuit claims company owes additional $1M in wake of deadly 2005 fire By George Diepenbrock

The owners of the former Boardwalk Apartments say their insurance company should have paid an additional $1 million in claims after a deadly 2005 fire destroyed a building at the west Lawrence complex. Attorneys with the Kansas City, Mo., firm Husch Blackwell LLP filed a lawsuit last week on behalf of Boardwalk Apartments LC in federal court alleging breach of contract against State Auto Property and Casualty Insurance Co. of Ohio. “State Auto has breached the pol-

icy by its failure to pay Boardwalk’s business income losses in full, and said failure is without just cause or excuse,” the suit alleged.

BRIEFLY Salvation Army just misses $100K goal The Lawrence Salvation Army wrapped up its annual Red Kettle Campaign a few thousand dollars short of its $100,000 goal, said Wes Dahlberg, executive director. “We were one good day away from that,” said Dahlberg of the $97,100 the bell-ringers at 16 locations across the area brought in between Nov. 11 and Christmas Eve. But 2011’s haul exceeded 2010’s campaign, which raised about $94,000, and Dahlberg said he “feels pretty good” about the campaign, particularly in the current economic climate. Other area Salvation Armys were reporting a similar lull in Red Kettle campaigns, said Amanda Waters, spokes-

woman for the Kansas and Western Missouri Division of the Salvation Army. For instance, the Red Kettle Campaign for the Kansas City metro area, which includes both Kansas City, Kan., and Kansas City, Mo., was about $300,000 short of its $1.8 million goal, though donations for the campaign come in until the end of January, Waters said.

originally been awarded to Boeing arch rival EADS but Boeing protested the decision and under pressure from Kansas officials the Pentagon reopened the bidding process. Boeing had promised Kansas 7,500 jobs with an overall economic impact of $390 million. On Wednesday, U.S. Sen. Pat Roberts, R-Kan., remembered that fight. “Boeing’s chairman sat in my office 22 months ago during that battle and promised me, then-Senator Brownback and Congressman (Todd) Tiahrt that if we won the fight to get the tanker contract back, Boeing would stay in Wichita,” Roberts said. “The chairman again promised the entire delegation the work would remain in Wichita just last February, when the tanker contract was settled in Boeing’s favor,” he said. In addition to fighting for Boeing in the halls of Washington, D.C., Kansas political leaders have helped the company in Topeka and Wichita, providing Boeing and other aircraft manufacturers with numerous incentives in the form of tax breaks, research dollars, workforce training and lobbying might. Boeing’s departure should teach state officials a lesson, said Kansas Democratic Chairwoman Joan Wagnon. “We should all learn that throwing money at wealthy corporations to attract or retain jobs doesn’t guarantee loyalty or longevity,” Wagnon said. “We need a new approach to economic development that invests first in our schools, our people, our roads and communities,” she said. State Rep. Jim Ward, DWichita, described Boeing as the “poster child of corporate tax incentives” getting tax breaks at every level of government. “It is outrageous we will not be getting the 7,500 jobs promised by Boeing when they got the Tanker contract,” he said. He said Kansas will be less trusting of corporate promises in the future. Boeing said it was moving future aircraft maintenance, modification and support to its plant in San Antonio, Texas, and engineering work to Oklahoma City.

EMPLOYEES OF BOEING in Wichita leave a companywide meeting where it was announced Wednesday that the company would relocate all of its Wichita operations by 2013, affecting more than 2,100 local employees.

This is why I call upon Governor Brownback and legislators from both political parties to commit to make the creation of jobs our first priority this legislative session.” — Kansas House Minority Leader Paul Davis, D-Lawrence Sound, Wash. The company said the 24 Kansas suppliers on that program will continue to provide parts as originally planned. But Charles Krider, business professor at Kansas University, said it will be difficult for suppliers and related companies to stay in Kansas, far away from the tanker work. Krider called the loss of Boeing a “big blow, particularly since the state worked so hard to work with Boeing to get the tanker contract.” He said that the federal defense budget is under a great deal of pressure, and that defense-related plant closures will probably happen in other parts of the country too. He disagreed with the notion of ending economic incentives for businesses to come to Kansas. “It’s hard to have one state or one city disarm in that battle as long as surrounding states are doing it,” he said. Kansas has long been fighting other states to maintain its aircraft manufacturing sector. Last year, Texas Gov. Rick Perry, whom Brownback sup-

portion of the time the burned building was unable to generate business income, but COURTS under its policy Boardwalk is entitled to payment from the date of the loss up to one month after the building was replaced, which was July 22, 2011.

Because the two sides agreed to a reimbursement amount of $16,799 per month, Boardwalk incurred nearly $1.2 million in lost business income because of the fire.

Its policy limit was about $1.1 million, so Boardwalk’s owners claim they are still

ports for president, signed into law a bill that gave Boeing a big tax break on aircraft temporarily located in Texas for manufacturing or assembly. At that time, Perry said, “HB 3727 makes it easier for companies like Boeing to have cost certainty when it comes to their tax bill, helping them commit to doing more business in this community and our state.” Boeing Defense, Space and Security President and Chief Executive Officer Dennis Mullenberg said, “Our partnership with the state of Texas enables us to offer enhanced capabilities to our military and commercial customers, and supports Boeing’s goals to grow and become more competitive.” Brownback and other Kansas officials on Wednesday said they would continue to work to expand aircraft manufacturing in the state, focusing on commercial aircraft production. Kansas Department of Commerce Secretary Pat George said Kansas was well-positioned to grow in this area. House Minority Leader Paul Davis, D-Lawrence, said the decision by Boeing was “beyond disappointing.” Davis added, “This is why I call upon Governor Brownback and legislators from both political parties to commit to make the creation of jobs our first priority this legislative session, invest heavily in job training so Boeing workers can receive the training they need to find new jobs and to promise these workers and the other Kansans without jobs that we will not reduce unemployment benefits by one penny.”

Police kill 8th-grader carrying pellet gun Police shot and killed an eighth-grader in the hallway of his middle school Wednesday after the boy brandished what looked like a handgun and pointed it at officers. It turned out to be a pellet gun that closely resembled the real thing. The 15-year-old “had plenty of opportunities to lower the gun and listen to the officers’ orders, and he didn’t want to,” Interim Police Chief Orlando Rodriguez said. Shortly before the confrontation, the boy had walked into a classroom and punched a random boy in the nose for no apparent reason. Police did not know why he pulled out the weapon. “We think it looks like this was a way to bring attention to himself,” the police chief said. The boy, identified as Jaime Gonzalez, did not threaten students or teachers, and no one else was hurt. The officers “took the necessary action to protect themselves and the other kids,” Rodriguez said. There weren’t many others in the hall at the time, but “they had every right to take the action that they took.” Authorities declined to share what the boy said before being shot.

Housing, taxes, medical care significant in attracting older residents By Chad Lawhorn

If only those Lawrence senior citizens who became an Internet sensation by filming a flash mob at the local Target store had worn T-shirts reading “Retire in Lawrence.”

“Now that would have been a marketing campaign,” said Cynthia Wagner, the city’s assistant city manager who is working with the newly formed Lawrence Retiree Attraction Task Force. But the dancing residents of

Meadowlark Estates, whose video has attracted more than 1.5 million viewers on YouTube, didn’t wear any such shirts, so the city’s retiree attraction task force continues its work. At a meeting Wednesday, task force members said mak-

ing Lawrence into one of the top retirement destinations in the Midwest is likely going to involve more mundane topics such as housing, taxes and medical care. Please see RETIREMENT, page 4A


More U.S. women having twins The number of twins born in the U.S. soared over the last three decades, mostly the result of test-tube babies and women waiting to have children until their 30s, when the chances of twins increase. In 2009, 1 in every 30 babies born in the U.S. was a twin, an astounding increase over the 1 in 53 rate in 1980, according to a government report issued Wednesday. “When people say it seems like you see more twins nowadays, they’re right,” said Joyce Martin, an epidemiologist who co-authored the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report. Some increase was expected as more women are delaying starting a family until they are over 30. For some unknown reason, mothers in their 30s are more likely to have twins than younger or older women. As much as a third of the increase can be attributed to that, Martin said. The rest of the rise is due to fertility drugs and treatments. “You have a double whammy going on. There are more older moms and more widespread use of fertility-enhancing therapies,” Martin said. 2 | ATLANTA

Feds want lower lead poisoning cutoff For the first time in 20 years, a federal panel is urging the government to lower the threshold for lead poisoning in children. If adopted, hundreds of thousands more children could be diagnosed with lead poisoning. Too much lead is harmful to developing brains and can mean a lower IQ. Recent research persuaded panel members that children could be harmed from lead levels in their blood that are lower than the current standard, officials at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said. While the number of cases has been falling, health officials think as many as 250,000 children have the problem, many of those undiagnosed. The proposed change could take it to 450,000 cases. Wednesday’s vote by the Advisory Committee on Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention would lower the definition of lead poisoning for young children from 10 micrograms of lead per deciliter of blood to 5 micrograms. The CDC has accepted all of the panel’s recommendations in the past. Lead, a metal that for years was common in paint and gasoline, can harm a child’s brain, kidneys and other organs. High levels in the blood can cause coma, convulsions and death. Lower levels can reduce intelligence, impair hearing and behavior and cause other problems. 3 | WASHINGTON, D.C.

Pentagon to unveil plan for cuts The Obama administration is rewriting its defense strategy to absorb hundreds of billions of dollars in defense budget cuts while scaling back the longstanding Pentagon goal of being ready to fight two wars simultaneously. Underscoring the political dimension of Washington’s debate over defense savings, President Barack Obama planned to make a rare appearance at the Pentagon today to outline the new strategy. The administration says tighter budgets are a must but will not come at the cost of sapping the strength of a military in transition after a decade at war. In a presidential election year the strategy gives Obama a rhetorical tool to defend his Pentagon budget-cutting choices. Republican contenders for the White House already have criticized Obama on a wide range of national security issues, including missile defense, Iran and planned reductions in ground forces.

LAWRENCE MURALIST DAVE LOEWENSTEIN is pictured with a print of his 1993 mural “The Guardians of the Arts,” which formerly adorned the north wall of the Signs of Life building at 722 Mass. The mural was recently painted over after repairs were done on the building. Loewenstein is organizing efforts to repaint the mural, which he says began his career as a community muralist.

Effort under way to replace mural By Shaun Hittle

ONLINE: See the video at

For 18 years, the vibrant colors of a community mural greeted anyone going through the walkway between 716 Mass. and 722 Mass. But recent repair work to fix a crumbling wall on the building that houses Signs of Life covered up the well-known mural, leaving a stark white canvas. And people noticed the absence of the mural that had become part of the downtown Lawrence culture. Local artist Dave Loewenstein, who organized the mural painting nearly two decades ago, said he immediately received calls from people wanting to know what happened. The mural “becomes like an old tree,” Loewenstein said. “They become sort of the place.”

Standing in front of the now-blank wall, Loewenstein talked affectionately about creating the mural, named “The Guardians of the Arts.” The idea was hatched by about two dozen community members, and aimed to celebrate the local Harvest of the Arts festival. Loewenstein estimated that hundreds of local residents played some part in the mural. “Anybody who walked by this alleyway, we tried to drag over and get a few brush strokes in,” he said. It’s that community connection that has Loewenstein and Signs of Life owner Clay Belcher brainstorming ways to either re-create the original mural, or to come up with a new mural for the space. “We’re absolutely open to doing something,” said Belcher, who explained

that the $30,000 repairs to the building were needed, as chunks of the wall were falling off. Ideas are in the preliminary stages, but Belcher said they’re hatching ways to pay for the supplies, estimated to cost about $1,000, while Loewenstein said he’d donate the labor. If the community wants the old mural back, Loewenstein, who now paints murals across the country, said he’s happy to do that. But he’s also open to some new form of collaboration. Either way, Loewenstein said they’ll work hard to figure out a way to add the color back into the walkway. “Without it, these places are sort of empty of human presence,” he said. — Reporter Shaun Hittle can be reached at 832-7173.

Officials move ahead with 2012 Reno air races ———————

11 people, including Lenexa woman, were killed in crash last Sept. By Scott Sonner Associated Press

RENO, NEV. — After considering canceling this year’s competition, officials are moving ahead with plans for the 2012 National Championship Air Races despite a tragic crash at September’s event that killed 11 and injured more than 70 spectators on the edge of the grandstand, the head of the Reno Air Races said Wednesday. Association President Mike Houghton said it’s “way too early” to say whether there will be changes to the format of the 49th annual event scheduled for Sept. 1216 at Reno-Stead Airport. But he said the association is enlisting a panel of experts, including former National Transportation Safety Board Chairman Jim Hall, to help ensure its safety. The panel is to report back in 90 days with any recommended revisions. In the meantime, Houghton said, it’s “business as usual” with a full slate of races on the schedule. “We already have booked some world-class performers to help us welcome back the world’s greatest pilots,” he said. “In short, we’re moving ahead,” Houghton told more than 100 supporters, who cheered the announcement at the Reno-Sparks Convention Center. “We are absolutely committed to doing everything we can to hold this historic event in 2012.” Race officials said they must secure a number of permits to make sure the competition happens. But as of now, tickets for the event are on sale and group orders for box seats are being accepted. The deadly crash at the 2011 races was captured on video from a number of graphic angles and appeared on television and the Internet. The footage showed the P-51 Mustang climbing sharply upward at more than 400 mph, then rolling and plunging nose-first into spectators. The wreck prompted calls that officials consider ending the event, the only one of its kind in the country.

A P-51 MUSTANG AIRPLANE APPROACHES THE GROUND right before crashing during an air show Sept. 16, 2011, in Reno, Nev. The vintage World War II-era fighter plane piloted by Jimmy Leeward plunged into the grandstands during the popular annual air show. The NTSB has scheduled a hearing Jan. 10 to examine the safety of air shows and air races in general. The Reno group’s directors said in a Dec. 28 letter on their website that while they have “many challenges to overcome and much work to do,” they are committed to preserving the aviation event that began four decades ago. Among other challenges, the board must secure licenses from the Federal Aviation Administration and RenoTahoe Airport Authority. They also have to deal with insurance costs and $1.5 million in losses caused by the cancellation of the 2011 event. Two lawsuits have been filed over the crash so far. FAA spokesman Ian Gregor said organizers must develop a comprehensive plan each year that includes

Hutchinson struggling with city’s housing stock By Ken Stephens The Hutchinson News

HUTCHINSON — The city of Hutchinson may be about to hire a housing director and create a Community Housing Trust fund, but Mayor Ron Sellers thinks that whatever it’s doing, it’s not enough and not fast enough to stem the deterioration of the city’s housing. “We have to speed this deal up. Neighborhoods are deteriorating at a greater pace than our ability to come up with ideas to make improvements,” Sellers said. “We’re losing ground now, and we’re going to lose ground in the future.” What began as a routine study session to discuss creating a Community Housing Trust Tuesday turned into a wide-ranging and lively discussion of the kinds of housing the city needs, what it should do and where to get the money. “Government can’t do it all, and the general fund can’t do it all,” said Planning and Development Director Nancy Scott. “The trust is to bring in different types of revenue to fund the goals we want to accomplish so we can make a difference.” The Community Housing Trust, she said, would be a vehicle for receiving donations and grants from private foundations. State and federal grants, she said, would continue to be managed through the city finance department. One advantage to having a separate fund for money from non-government sources is that there would be greater flexibility in how private money could be spent, said Housing Commission Chairwoman Emily Hurst. Government grants come with restrictions, such as re-

quiring homeowners to meet income eligibility guidelines and limits on how much can be spent to rehabilitate a house. In the past, the city also has had to deal with geographic limits on where government grant money could be spent. “There are a lot of creative things we can do with private funds,” Hurst said. Private funding also could get around objections such as those raised by Council member Bob Bush. Bush said that most people he has talked to support the city’s relatively inexpensive Brush Up Hutch program, which offers to reimburse low- to moderate-income homeowners up to $250 for the cost of paint for the exterior of their homes. “The people I know are 100 percent behind the paint program and helping the elderly and handicapped, but they are not behind helping landlords on rental property or people who have jobs and choose not to take care of their property,” he said. However, Housing Commission members Greg Binns and Ron Kelley mentioned that if they are to achieve the goal of elevating the quality of housing in entire neighborhoods, rental properties will have to be addressed because they are often right next door to homes occupied by elderly owners. Sellers said he thinks the city “needs to take more aggressive action” to enforce city code violations at rental properties. The next step, Bush said, should be a conversation about the role of the City Council in housing. Perhaps, he suggested, the council should triple or quadruple the budget for demolishing unsafe houses.

requirements for pilot and aircraft qualifications, and a detailed course layout. Jimmy Leeward, 74, of Ocala, Fla., became the 20th pilot killed at the competition in the Sept. 16 crash, but it was the first time spectators were killed since the races began 47 years ago in Reno. The NTSB is investigating the cause of the crash. Its findings could be released as early as September or as late as November, Houghton said. “If we were to sit back and wait for the results of that investigation, we could be sitting here doing nothing through October and we would miss the September event,” he said. “We can’t wait for that. We’ve got to move forward.” Houghton added the review panel is composed of “some of the geniuses within aviation.”

“I think together, we should be able to answer a lot of those nagging questions that are troubling all of us,” he said. The panel’s other members are Nick Sabatini, former associate administrator of aviation safety for the FAA; Jon Sharp, an aeronautical engineer and the winningest pilot in the event’s history; and Steven Hinton, a champion pilot and top stunt pilot in the film industry. The panel is expected to present preliminary recommendations to the racing association in early April. During the competition, planes fly wingtip-to-wingtip as low as 50 feet off the sagebrush at speeds sometimes surpassing 500 mph. Pilots follow an oval path around pylons, with distances and speeds depending on the class of aircraft. Reno has the world’s only multi-class air races, with six classes of aircraft competing, said Don Berliner of Alexandria, Va., president of the Society of Air Racing Historians. Air races elsewhere involve only a single class of aircraft, he said. Houghton said if the races do end up getting cancelled for financial or other reasons, organizers will hold an air show or memorial in September instead. “We certainly have carefully considered our other options besides the running of the Air Races,” he said. But he said it would not be feasible financially or logistically to operate “anything less than the full National Championship Air races and Air Show” beyond next year. “Many of the victims, their families, air race teams and fans have told us they are coming to Reno this September no matter what. We feel it is our obligation to give them something, no matter what,” Houghton said. Cherie Elvin, a 71-year-old Lenexa, Kan., woman, was among the spectators who were killed, and Elvin’s husband, two sons and a daughter-in-law all were injured in the crash.



“Taxes, in particular, seem to be a pretty significant issue for retirees,” said Doug Gaumer, president of Lawrence’s Intrust Bank and a member of the task force. Task force members said they want to gather data on sales and property tax rates for a variety of Big 12 communities and other college cities — everywhere from Fort Collins, Colo., to Chapel Hill, N.C. — to get a clearer picture of how Lawrence’s financial climate stacks up to other potential retirement communities. The group’s final report also is expected to review strengths, weaknesses and opportunities related to:

 Medical services, social services and volunteer opportunities.

Legal, transportation and employment opportunities.

 Kansas University’s offerings for retirees, other educational services and cultural and entertainment activities.

Housing options. City Commissioner Hugh Carter, who is co-chairman of the task force with Douglas County Commissioner Jim Flory, said he thinks the housing component could lead to


reimbursement rates for housing prisoners in county jails, among other funding issues. In other business, commissioners approving a contract for $9,461 with Kansas Gas Service to move a natural gas line, which is in conflict with a planned reconstruction project along one mile of Douglas County Road 1055. The line runs between U.S.

discussions about how different entities can form partnerships to build infill housing that is geared toward retirees. “I’m hoping a big idea or two can come out of this,” Carter said. Carter said he expects the task force to produce a report to deliver to city and county commissioners by the end of May. After that, he expects another group to put together a marketing plan based on the recommendations of the task force. Carter said time is of the essence on the project because the Kansas University Alumni Association is planning a special survey this summer polling its membership about retirement issues. Carter said the alumni association has agreed to ask participants in the survey whether they would like more information about retiring in Lawrence. Carter thinks that could produce several thousand leads for the community to follow up on, and he said it would be important for the community to have a formal marketing plan in place. “I think we’re doing this work at a really good time,” Carter said. — City reporter Chad Lawhorn can be reached at 832-6362.

Search for student cost $36K in overtime OVERLAND PARK (AP) — A northeast Kansas police department says its officers racked up nearly $36,000 in overtime searching for a college student who disappeared for five days last month. The Overland Park Police Department released the overtime figures Wednesday, saying 63 officers were involved in the search for Aisha Khan. The 19-year-old Johnson County Community College disappeared Dec. 16 after leaving her sister a voicemail saying a man was harassing her on the Edwards campus of Kansas University. Police treated the case as a possible abduction. But Khan was found unharmed five days later at a

said no charges would be filed because college officials — not the family — reported the disappearance. Khan is married and lives in Olathe.

$77K in property stolen from storage SALINA (AP) — Police in Salina are investigating another big theft from a commercial storage unit. KSAL-AM reports that someone broke into the 12-by-35foot unit between Dec. 23 and Tuesday by taking the door off its tracks. The thief made off with an estimated $76,900 worth of goods, including two 77-inch flat-screen TVs still in boxes. Also taken were guns and a gun safe, jewelry, audio equipment, a savings bond and a coin collection. In December, a Salina man lost an estimated $5,400 worth of property to a storage unit break-in. The bigticket items in that case were a collection of 15,000 football, baseball and basketball cards valued at $3,000, and a $2,000 stamp collection.

Why does the city finance department — when it generates the water, trash and sewer bills — put the next day’s date as the billing date and not the date it actually generates the bill?


“The city of Lawrence provides the utility bill information to our printer one day before the bills are to be mailed,” said Megan Gilliland, communications manager for the city. “This provides time for our printer to process the information and mail the bills the next day. Since the due date is based upon the mailing date, it is necessary to provide the bill information at least one day before the billing date so that the due date is correct.”

Kansas professors remember Mount Rainier shooting victim

SALINA — A park ranger who was shot to death while on duty at Mount Rainier was a friendly, dedicated student who was passionate about protecting the country’s natural resources, according to professors who taught Anderson her while she earned bachelor’s and master’s degrees in Kansas. Margaret Anderson, a 34-year-old mother of two, was shot to death Sunday while trying to stop a car that had run a checkpoint requiring drivers to put chains on their vehicles. The suspected gunman, Benjamin Colton Barnes, 24, was later found dead in the park.

Anderson earned a bachelor’s degree in fisheries and wildlife management from Kansas State University in 1999 and a master’s in biology from Fort Hays State University in 2003. Karen Hickman, who taught biology at Fort Hays when Anderson studied there, described her as a dedicated, driven student, The Salina Journal reported Wednesday. Anderson wrote her master’s thesis on invasive species, investigating the bull thistle problem at Bryce Canyon National Park in Utah and linking the weed’s profusion to road building, said Hickman, who is now an assistant professor in natural resources ecology and management at Oklahoma State University. “I went back and read the

acknowledgments in her thesis,” Hickman said. “She talked about how much she learned through the process. She knew this is what she wanted to do, to protect the U.S. natural resources. She was so devoted to that.” Hickman said Anderson enrolled at Fort Hays State anticipating a job with the U.S. Department of the Interior. “When she came to me, this was her goal. She wanted to work with the National Park Service.” Don Kaufman, a Kansas State professor of mammalian ecology, was Anderson’s undergraduate adviser. “She was a personable young woman,” Kaufman said. “She was one of those students who was a delight to have in class. She obviously was motivated and a good student.”

LAW ENFORCEMENT REPORT • A suspect pushed a Haworth Hall lab door open some time between 4 a.m. and 5 a.m. Sunday and stole $5,520 in items from the Kansas University building, 1200 Sunnyside Ave., according to a KU Police report. The burglary was reported at 8 a.m. Tuesday. • A 19-year-old Alabama woman reported a stolen purse and items valued at $1,240 in the 3100 block of Ousdahl Road on Sunday. • A 30-year-old Lawrence woman reported a burglary and theft of a television and other items valued at $3,175 from the 1700 block of Maple Lane on Tuesday. • Douglas County prosecutors have charged a 24-year-old Lawrence man with aggravated battery and making a criminal threat after a domestic incident Tuesday at a Lawrence apartment. Dustin A. Johnson appeared in court Wednesday afternoon, and a judge will set his bond at $5,000. Lawrence police arrested Johnson on Tuesday afternoon after a 24-year-old woman alleged Johnson, her boyfriend, during an argument knocked her to the ground and grabbed her, said Sgt. Matt Sarna, a Lawrence police spokesman. The woman, who had minor physical injuries, got away from Johnson, left the apartment and called police, Sarna said.

man faces misdemeanor child endangerment charges after a Tuesday incident on the Kansas River levee in North Lawrence. Sgt. Matt Sarna, a Lawrence police spokesman, said officers were called at 5:45 p.m. Tuesday to the 100 block of North Fifth Street about a man who was possibly intoxicated and was on the levee with two small children. A passerby observed two children ages, 7 and 8, walking on the levee with the man and was concerned for their safety. Sarna said that police found the man lying down on the levee and that he was uncooperative with officers and became combative. Police arrested the man, John M. Minoglio, and the children were turned over to family members. No injuries were reported, Sarna said. Minoglio was suspected of using alcohol.

and sold some of them to two men in Leavenworth County for cash and electronics. According to Grissom’s office, Leavenworth County Sheriff’s officers recovered the stolen guns from the buyers a month later. U.S. District Judge Richard Rogers is scheduled to sentence Amundsen April 6 in Topeka. He faces a maximum 10 years in prison and fine up to $250,000. Co-defendant Justin Edwards Hornback, 20, of Tonganoxie, is awaiting trial in the case. Assistant U.S. Attorney Mike Warner prosecuted Amundsen’s case. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and Leavenworth County Sheriff’s Office investigated the case.

Kansas Highway Patrol troopers Wednesday were still investigating the cause of a head-on collision Tuesday that injured five people, including two Baldwin City children, on U.S. Highway 56 in southwestern Douglas County. “It could have definitely been worse,” Master Trooper Scott White said. “It’s unfortunate that people were hurt as seriously as they were, but as of right now they’re still alive. We’re thankful for that. We hope for the best from here on out.” White said troopers hope to interview Joann O’Brien, a 76-year-old Overbrook woman, who drove a 2006 Dodge Grand Caravan minivan that drifted left of the center line and struck a pickup truck the two children were traveling in just west of Worden. Troopers are trying to determine why her westbound van went into the eastbound lane about 1 p.m. Tuesday.

O’Brien was listed in fair condition Wednesday at Research Medical Center in Kansas City, Mo., a spokeswoman said. Condition updates at Kansas University Hospital in Kansas City, Kan., were not available Wednesday for two of her passengers, Jamie Ullery, 47, of Overbrook, and Alice Beatty, 51, of Independence, Mo. All three adults were flown via helicopter ambulances to those hospitals, authorities said Tuesday. Caleb Othick, 12, of Baldwin City, was listed in stable condition Wednesday at Children’s Mercy Hospital in Kansas City, Mo., and a hospital spokeswoman said Kara Othick, 10, was no longer listed as a patient there. The children were sent there via ground ambulance Tuesday. White said Tuesday the driver of the pickup truck, Darren S. Othick, 45, of Baldwin City, was not injured. All six people had their seat belts on at the time of the accident. — Reporter George Diepenbrock can be reached at 832-7144.

Now you see it, now you don’t: Time cloak created By Seth Borenstein Associated Press

WASHINGTON — It’s one thing to make an object invisible, like Harry Potter’s mythical cloak. But scientists have made an entire event impossible to see. They have invented a time masker. Think of it as an art heist that takes place before your eyes and surveillance cameras. You don’t see the thief strolling into the museum, taking the painting down or walking away, but he did. It’s not just that the thief is invisible — his whole activity is. What scientists at Cornell University did was on a much smaller scale, both in terms of events and time. It happened so quickly that it’s not even a blink of an eye. Their time cloak lasts an incredibly tiny fraction of a fraction of a second. They hid an event for 40 trillionths of a second, according to a study appearing in today’s edition of the journal Nature. We see events happening as light from them reaches our eyes. Usually it’s a continuous flow of light. In the new research, however, scientists were able to interrupt that flow for just an instant. Other newly created invisibility cloaks fashioned by scientists move the light beams away in the traditional three dimensions. The Cornell team alters not where the light flows but how fast it moves, changing in the dimension of time, not space. They tinkered with the speed of beams of light in a way that would make it appear to surveillance cameras or laser security beams that an event, such as an art heist, isn’t happening. Another way to think of it is as if scientists edited or erased a split second of history. It’s as if you are watching a movie with a scene inserted that you don’t see or notice. It’s there in the movie, but it’s not something you saw, said study co-author Moti Fridman, a physics researcher at Cornell. The scientists created a lens of not just light, but time. Their method splits light, speeding up one part of light and slowing down another. It creates a gap and that gap is where an event is masked. “You kind of create a hole in time where an event takes place,” said study co-author Alexander Gaeta, director of Cornell’s School of Applied and Engineering Physics. “You just don’t know that anything ever happened.”



After Iowa, Romney hopes to pull away in N.H. Bachmann drops out of race By David Espo and Kasie Hunt Associated Press

MANCHESTER, N.H. — Mitt Romney eagerly pocketed an endorsement from twotime New Hampshire primary winner John McCain on Wednesday and bid to convert a single-digit victory in Iowa into a Republican presidential campaign juggernaut. Unimpressed, Newt Gingrich ridiculed the former Massachusetts governor as a liberal turned moderate now masquerading as a conservative. Former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum sought to rally conservatives to his side after coming achingly close to victory in the Iowa caucuses. “This is a wide-open race still,” added former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman, who skipped the Iowa caucuses in hopes of making his mark in next Tuesday’s first-in-thenation primary. Romney is the odds-on favorite to win the New Hampshire primary, and the endorsement of McCain, an Arizona senator, made his welcome in the state a warm one. “The time has arrived for Republicans to choose a presidential nominee, a new standard bearer who has the ability and determination to defeat President Obama,” said the 2008 Republican presidential nominee, a man with a demonstrated appeal

Already, the Republican field of challengers was dwindling. Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann ended her campaign after a dreary 5 percent showing in Iowa, the state where she was born. After suggesting he, too, might withdraw, Texas Gov. Rick Perry decided otherwise. “Here we come South Carolina!!!” he tweeted. That primary is Jan. 21 and will mark the first balloting in the South as well as in a state that is part of the Republican Party’s conservative, political base nationally. Iowa, for months ground zero in the Republican race, yielded an almost impossibly close finish.

Romney emerged with an eight-vote victory over Santorum, whose grass-roots campaigning produced a late surge that fell just shy of victory. Texas Rep. Ron Paul finished third, followed by Gingrich, Perry and Bachmann. A survey of Iowa caucusgoers highlighted the internal divisions in the GOP as it sets out to find a challenger for Barack Obama in the general election campaign. Romney, who campaigned as the man best positioned to defeat Obama, was the favorite by far among caucus-goers who said that goal was their priority. Paul was preferred by those who said what mattered most was backing a true conservative. Santorum ran particularly well among those who said they were

Stirring up a fight, Obama names consumer watchdog By Ben Feller and Jim Kuhnhenn Associated Press

SHAKER HEIGHTS, OHIO — Defying Republican lawmakers, President Barack Obama on Wednesday barreled by the Senate and installed a national consumer watchdog on his own, provoking GOP threats of a constitutional showdown in the courts. Setting a fierce tone in the election-year fight for middle-class voters, Obama said: “I refuse to take ‘no’ for an answer.” Obama named Richard Cordray, a respected former attorney general of Ohio, to be the first director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau after giving up on hopes for a confirmation vote in the Senate. The appointment means the agency is able to oversee a vast swath of lending companies and others accused at times of preying on consumers with shady practices. In political terms, Obama’s move was unapol-

ogetically brazen, the equivalent of a haymaker at Republicans in the Senate who had blocked his nominee. Acting right Obama after Tuesday’s presidential caucuses in Iowa, which showered attention on his opponents, Obama sought to make a splash as the one fighting for the rights of the little guy. Presidents of both parties long have gotten around a stalled confirmation by naming a nominee to a job when the Senate is on a break through a process known as a recess appointment. But Obama went further by squeezing in his appointment during a break between rapid Senate sessions this week, an unusual move that the GOP called an arrogant power grab. The White House said what


Wednesday’s markets



Europe won modest respite from its debt crisis Wednesday as Germany and Portugal borrowed with relative ease ahead of a hazard-filled few weeks for the 17 nations that use the euro. But Greece’s new prime minister warned that his debt-crippled country has only three months to come up with new reforms so his country can stay in the eurozone and avoid a potential default — a reminder of how the crisis can flare up at any time. And the news that a major Italian bank had to offer an unexpectedly large discount to raise new capital showed just how wary investors are of Europe’s shaky banks.

Yahoo’s previous turnaround attempts have flopped under three different leaders with dramatically different backgrounds — former movie

mogul Terry Semel, beloved Yahoo co-founder Jerry Yang and profanity-spewing Silicon Valley veteran Carol Bartz. Now, the struggling Internet company is making yet another unorthodox choice with Wednesday’s announcement that it has lured away Scott Thompson from a lower-profile job running eBay’s thriving PayPal service to step into the pressure-packed position as Yahoo’s fourth CEO in less than five years. The appointment raised questions among analysts, since Thompson, 54, has no experience in online content and advertising, Yahoo’s chief sources of revenue. The timing of Thompson’s hiring also came as a surprise, given that Yahoo’s board has been considering a sale of all or part of the company since firing Bartz four months ago.

the Senate was doing — gaveling in and out of session every few days solely to avoid being in recess — was a sham. Obama’s aides said the president would not be stopped by a legislative gimmick, even though it was Senate Democrats who began the practice to halt President George W. Bush’s appointments. “When Congress refuses to act, and as a result hurts our economy and puts people at risk, I have an obligation as president to do what I can without them,” Obama said from Ohio, a state vital to Obama’s re-election bid. Consumer groups hailed Obama’s decision; the U.S. Chamber of Commerce balked and warned it was so legally shaky that the consumer bureau’s work may be compromised. The response from Republicans was blistering.

looking for a candidate with strong moral character. Paul outpolled his rivals among younger voters and gained an estimated 48 percent share of self-identified independents, a group that traditionally plays a major role in determining the outcome of New Hampshire’s primary. “If you look to bringing new people in, the frustrated young people that Obama had, you have to look at my campaign. I mean that’s where the enthusiasm is,” he said. McCain and Romney clashed sharply as rivals in 2008 before reconciling for the fall campaign. The Arizona senator did well among younger and independent voters in his two New Hampshire primary campaigns. Now, in a supporting role, he said, “Our message to President Obama is, you can run but you can’t hide from your record.” Romney was more scathing. Paraphrasing the president, he recalled, “He said, ‘If I can’t turn this economy around in three years, I’ll be looking at a one-term proposition.’ “Well, I’m here to collect,” he added. Before leaving Iowa, Romney made the round of early morning interview programs, sounding at times more like an analyst of a race than a competitor. “I think there’s a real boost coming out of Iowa, not just for me but also of course for Rick Santorum and Ron Paul,” he said. At the same time, he

brushed aside suggestions that his share of the vote in Iowa, less than 25 percent, was a sign of weakness. “Ronald Reagan got 29 percent of the votes here and ultimately he was able to become our nominee,” said, referring to the 1980 campaign that put Republicans in the White House. He had a stiffer response to Gingrich, who refused to extend congratulations in the wake of the Iowa outcome. “I’m sure he’s disappointed in the results last night. But I expect he’ll go on and mount a spirited campaign,” he said. Spirited might be an understatement, given the sharp escalation in rhetoric from the former House speaker in the final hours in Iowa. His campaign purchased a fullpage advertisement in the Union Leader, New Hampshire’s largest newspaper, calling Romney a Massachusetts moderate. Talking with reporters in Concord, N.H., Gingrich described himself as a “conservative leader for the last generation,” and depicted Romney as something entirely different. “In that same time period, Gov. Romney was first an independent, then repudiated Reagan-Bush, then voted for Paul Tsongas, the most liberal candidate in the ‘93 campaign, then ran to the left of Teddy Kennedy and then became a moderate to run for governor in Massachusetts in 2002.”

BRIEFLY FDA limits some Art student hangs own antibiotics in livestock painting in museum WASHINGTON — The Food and Drug Administration on Wednesday ordered farmers to limit the use of a type of antibiotics they give livestock because it could make people more resistant to a key antibiotic that can save lives, encouraging news for public health advocates who say such animal antibiotics are overused. FDA officials have been clear in stating their belief that antibiotics given to animals before slaughter are linked to growing antibiotic resistance in humans, but it has struggled with how to tackle the problem because the powerful livestock industry says the drugs are needed to keep animals healthy. The agency’s order Wednesday will limit cephalosporins, which are given to some cattle, swine, chickens and turkeys before slaughter. The drugs are used to treat pneumonia, skin infections and meningitis, among other diseases, in humans.

WARSAW, POLAND — Art student Andrzej Sobiepan didn’t want to wait decades for his work to appear in museums. So he took matters in his own hands, covertly hanging one of his paintings in a major Polish gallery. By Wednesday, the young artist was getting plenty of attention after a nationwide TV channel reported on his stunt at the National Museum in the southwestern city of Wroclaw. He told reporters he hoped galleries would give more exhibition space to young artists as a result. Sobiepan, a Wroclaw Fine Arts Academy student whose last name means “his own master,” said he was inspired by the elusive British graffiti artist known only as Banksy. On Dec. 10, Sobiepan put it up in a room with contemporary Polish art when a guard at the museum was looking the other way. Museum officials didn’t notice the new painting for three days.

Goodbye, Boeing Members of the Kansas congressional delegation were able to help Boeing Co. land a major military contract, but they couldn’t keep the company and its new jobs in Kansas.


oeing’s decision to move its last operations out of Wichita is an economic blow that will reverberate throughout the state. Company officials announced Wednesday that reductions in the federal defense budget would force it to close its defense plant in Wichita by the end of 2013, costing the city more than 2,100 jobs. The work being done in Wichita will be spread to other Boeing facilities in Texas, Oklahoma and Washington. Wichita officials said the closure would result in a loss of $1.5 billion in wages over 10 years. The decision to move work on a new Air Force refueling tanker to Puget Sound, Wash., was especially hard for Kansas government officials to swallow. Sen. Jerry Moran and Sen. Pat Roberts both issued statements only minutes after Boeing’s announcement saying they were “outraged” (Moran) and “hugely disappointed” (Roberts) by Boeing’s announcement. The Kansas congressional delegation and top state officials had worked hard to help Boeing land the tanker project, a move the company had said would bring about 7,500 jobs to Kansas. To the officials, Boeing’s decision to close the plant represents a broken promise to the state. Moran even called on Boeing to reconsider its decision and promised, “In the days ahead, I will continue to do all I can to encourage Boeing to fulfill their pledge to the Wichita community.” Those are nice words, but Boeing’s announcement is a sad reminder that business is business and the aircraft company is going to do what is in its own best interests regardless of any nonbinding “pledge” to Wichita or Kansas. Boeing’s exit will end an 80-year relationship with Wichita that began when the company bought the Stearman Aircraft Co in 1929. During World War II, the company employed more than 40,000 people, including many women, and churned out four bombers a day. Boeing sold its commercial aircraft operation in 2005 but retained 4,500 workers in its defense division. Layoffs have cut that number to the current 2,100. The general aviation and military aircraft business have been a mainstay of the state’s economy for decades and earned Wichita the designation of “Air Capital of the World.” As Wichita Mayor Carl Brewer noted after Wednesday’s announcement, “… there is a lot of emotional and economic attachment tied to this.” Brewer noted that the city had faced similar challenges before but would continue to support its other aircraft employers, including Sprint AeroSystems, which took over Boeing’s commercial operations in 2005. Wichita and the rest of the state have no choice but to make the best of things, but Boeing’s exit will be a significant loss for Kansas.

Santorum finding a constituency WASHINGTON — The complaint that Iowa is not a typical American state is true but trivial because there is no such state. Can you name one whose political culture, closely considered, is more like than unlike any other state’s? Anyway, someplace has to go first, and it should be somewhere the natives are receptive and media are not decisive, so marginal candidates have a sporting chance to become central. Rick Santorum has become central because Iowa Republicans ignored an axiom that is as familiar as it is false: Democrats fall in love and Republicans fall in line. Republicans, supposedly hierarchical, actually are — let us say the worst — human. They crave fun. Supporting Romney still seems to many like a duty, the responsible thing to do. Suddenly, supporting Santorum seems like a lark, partly because a week or so ago he could quit complaining about media neglect and start having fun, which is infectious. He can, of course, be tenaciously serious. On Sept. 26, 1996, the Senate was debating whether to ban partial-birth abortion, the procedure whereby the baby to be killed is almost delivered, feet first, until only a few inches of its skull remain in the birth canal, and then the skull is punctured, emptied and collapsed. Santorum asked two pro-choice senators opposed to the ban, Russ Feingold, D-Wis., and Frank Lautenberg, D-N.J.,

George Will

Even if Santorum is not nominated, he might galvanize a constituency that makes him a vice presidential choice. this: Suppose the baby slips out of the birth canal before it can be killed. Should killing it even then be a permissible choice? Neither senator would say no. On Oct. 20, 1999, during another such debate, Santorum had a colloquy with pro-choice Barbara Boxer, D-Calif.: Santorum: “You agree that, once the child is born, separated from the mother, that that child is protected by the Constitution and cannot be killed. Do you agree with that?” Boxer: “I think that when you bring your baby home ...” Santorum is not, however, a one-dimensional social conservative. He was Senate floor manager of the most important domestic legislation since the 1960s, the 1996 welfare reform. This is intensely pertinent 15 years later, as the welfare state buckles beneath the weight of

unsustainable entitlement programs: Welfare reform repealed a lifetime entitlement under Aid to Families with Dependent Children, a provision of the 1935 Social Security Act, and empowered states to experiment with new weaves of the safety net. White voters without college education — economically anxious and culturally conservative — were called “Reagan Democrats” when they were considered only seasonal Republicans because of Ronald Reagan. Today they are called the Republican base. Who is more apt to energize them, Santorum, who is from them, or Romney, who is desperately seeking enthusiasm? Romney recently gave a speech with a theme worthy of a national election, contrasting a “merit-based” or “opportunity” society with Barack Obama’s promotion of an “entitlement society,” which Romney termed “a fundamental corruption of the American spirit”: “Once we thought ‘entitlement’ meant that Americans were entitled to the privilege of trying to succeed. ... But today the new entitlement battle is over the size of the check you get from Washington. ... And the only people who truly enjoy any real rewards are those who do the redistributing — the government.” Romney discerns the philosophic chasm separating those who embrace and those who reject progressivism’s objective, which is to weave a web of de-

pendency, increasingly entangling individuals and industries in government supervision. Santorum exemplifies a conservative aspiration born about the time he was born in 1958. Frank Meyer, a founding editor of William F. Buckley’s National Review in 1955, postulated the possibility, and necessity, of “fusionism,” a union of social conservatives and those of a more libertarian, free-market bent. If the Republicans’ binary choice has arrived, and if new technologies of communication and fundraising are repealing some traditional impediments to fluidity in political competition, Santorum can hope to win the nomination. Yes, in 2006, a ghastly year for Republicans (who lost 30 seats and control of the House, and six Senate seats), Santorum lost by 17 points in his bid for a third term. But, then, Richard Nixon was defeated for governor of California six years before being elected president, carrying California. Even if Santorum is not nominated, he might galvanize a constituency that makes him a vice presidential choice. For Obama, getting to 270 electoral votes without Pennsylvania’s 20 is problematic. But so, just now, are Republican prospects of getting to 270 with their narrowing choice of candidates.

Caring counts To the editor: A recent article in the Journal-World indicated that it was a mystery as to why crime rates were down. Maybe it is because Lawrence is such a caring community. Keeping SRS services in Lawrence had to be one factor, but I am thinking of other services that are provided for the young people in Lawrence, such as Van Go Arts, the Boys and Girls Club, the library and city recreation programs.

America is dumbing down A friend of mine hands me what looks like a business card. It says, “Don’t Die Stupid.” As America begins another round of voting to select the next president, or retain the current one, what we need is a stupid test. Flunk it and you shouldn’t vote. Evidence of the dumbing-down of America is everywhere. Some of it is chronicled in a new book, “Blue Collar Intellectuals: When the Enlightened and the Everyman Elevated America” by Daniel J. Flynn. Flynn contends popular culture has divorced itself from the life of the mind. He has plenty of examples in case television, texting, video games and improper use of English (“she was like and then I was like”) are not enough. Flynn calls the digital age that has sped up the process by which we receive information “Idiotville,” because it has made us less intelligent. “Stupid is the new smart,” writes Flynn. He says we arrived at this lower level of brain activity because as recently as the last century “the everyman aspired to high culture and ... intellectuals descended from the ivory tower to speak to the everyman.” Today, he says, “Those who pursue the life of the mind have insulated themselves from popular culture. Speaking in insider jargon and writing unread books, intellectuals have locked themselves away in a ghetto of their own creation.” That has left the nonintellectual class to fend for itself. One library in Portland, Maine, rather than leading, is being led by the unformed teenage mind. “Video gaming is just a new form of literacy,” says the “teen librarian.” If so, what’s the new form of il-

Our intellectual depth increasingly resembles floor wax; shiny on top, but lacking depth. A muscle atrophies if it is not used.” literacy, ignorance about how to use a joystick? Flynn quotes from Steven Johnson’s book, “Everything Bad is Good for You: How Today’s Popular Culture is Actually Making Us Smarter.” Sure, and sugar makes us slimmer. Johnson says, “Reality shows ... challenge our emotional intelligence.” Emotional intelligence? In an age when feelings trump everything and too many reality TV programs feature well-heeled housewives and love-starved bachelors, “emotional intelligence” is a contradiction. “A mind is a terrible thing to waste” is the slogan of the United Negro College Fund. It certainly is. Here’s a potent example of what Flynn means when he writes about the destruction of our minds: “At the tony Cushing Academy in western Massachusetts, $40,000 in tuition doesn’t even get you a library anymore. ‘When I look at books, I see an outdated technology, like scrolls

Rough and ready ‘Intense’ Jayhawks trip KSU

Tom Keegan

Releford sets tone for KU

By Gary Bedore

Kansas University’s basketball starters knew they were in for a fierce, physical battle — a war — against ultra-aggressive Kansas State on Wednesday night. So Tyshawn Taylor and Co. asked the Jayhawk reserves for a big favor before practice last Sunday. “We told our Red team to foul us a lot more than they usually do,” senior guard Taylor said. “(BeQ For more cause of that) on Kansas’ our practices Big 12-openhave been ing win more intense over Kansas and physical. I State, think we were including ready for them audio, video, tonight.” message Prepped boards, a well at pracphoto gallery tice the last and more, three days, the go to No. 14-ranked Jayhawks outrebounded No. 23-ranked Kansas State, 50-26, in Wednesday’s 67-49 Big 12-opening victory in Allen Fieldhouse. “Christian (Garrett) and Niko (Roberts) and all those guys were out there beating on us, getting us ready,” KU junior center Jeff Withey said after grabbing nine rebounds and blocking six shots, while scoring eight points in 24 minutes. “Especially Jamari (Traylor) ... he was fouling every time,” Withey added. “It was rough. They were rough practices, but definitely got us ready. The Red Team did a great job.” It showed on the stat sheet. Junior power forward Thomas Robinson had 14 rebounds to go with 15 points. Junior forward Travis Releford secured a career-high 11 boards to go with a career-high 16 points. And junior guard Elijah Johnson grabbed a career-high eight boards to go with his five assists, three steals and three points. “I’d never have dreamed we could outrebound them by that margin, but we did,” KU coach Bill Self said. “We went after the ball. “Thomas is going to get his,” Self added. “The keys were Travis, Jeff, Elijah. We’ve not had our guards get eight. We’ve not

Kansas women down No. 23 Texas, 72-67 J-W Staff and Wire Reports

AUSTIN, TEXAS — Angel Goodrich scored 22 points, and Kansas University held on to beat No. 23 Texas, 72-67, on Wednesday night to win its Big 12 opener for the first time in six years. Monica Engelman added 19 points, and Carolyn Davis scored 14 of her 16 after halftime for the Jayhawks (12-1, 1-0), who hadn’t opened their conference schedule with a win since beating the Longhorns, 70-61, in 2006. “I thought we were really good early,” KU coach Bonnie Henrickson said. “Out of the locker room and starting the

game, we had great poise and composure, toughness, and unselfishness, which we have been all year.” Ashleigh Fontenette scored 19 Angel Goodrich points as Texas (10-3, 0-1) lost had 22 points for the first time since falling to No. 6 Tennessee on Dec. 4. Kansas, which came in with the nation’s best shooting percentage, extended its winning streak to six games despite shooting a season-worst 39 percent from the field (26 of 66). “(Texas) forced turnovers and made shots, and thank goodness the game wasn’t 41 minutes, it was only 40,” Henrickson said. Monica Engleman O Box score on page 3B added 19

All week in practice, the end-of-the-bench guys on the Kansas University basketball team followed instructions to prepare for the much-anticipated game against rival Kansas State. The orders called for the guys who wear red jerseys in practice to model their games after hockey goons, hunt heads the way Nolan Ryan did, bring a Ray Lewis mind-set to the basketball court. The starters knew pretty was not going to describe the game, and the uglier things got in practice the more prepared they felt. Then the game started, and Travis Releford brought Releford the intensity to another level to the delight of the 16,300 spectators in Allen Fieldhouse, who, like Releford, had their best games of the season. It was loud, and it was ugly. Releford doesn’t have a loud game, but it can look ugly when he’s shooting, his right elbow flying, his release a little slow, or dribbling into trouble, or telegraphing a pass. But Releford knows how to make life miserable for the man he’s guarding, and he did that and more in the first half of KU’s most-impressive 67-49 victory against the Wildcats. Kansas State’s star junior forward Rodney McGruder came into the game on a two-game streak in which he had scored 42 points and made 15 of 18 field goals. “In the past, he has outrebounded us on offense and defense,” Releford said. “We just got after it and tried to make sure he didn’t get any rebounds on offense or defense.” At the half, McGruder had six points and just one rebound Please see KEEGAN, page 5B

Weis names strength coach By Matt Tait

Connections from the past continue to shape Charlie Weis’ future at Kansas University. Wednesday, one day after naming former Notre Dame assistant Rob Ianello as KU’s wide receivers coach and recruiting coordinator, Weis announced the hiring of Scott Holsopple, who will lead KU’s strength-and-conditioning program. Holsopple comes to KU after spending five seasons as the assistant director of strength and conditioning at the University of Florida, where Weis was the offensive coordinator during the 2011 season. At UF, Holsopple worked

under Mickey Marotti, who recently departed his position as director of strength and conditioning with the Gators to serve in the same capacity at Ohio State under former UF head coach Urban Meyer. According to an Associated Press report, Marotti, who worked at Florida from 2005-11, is known for having players haul rocks, flip tires and work out at midnight. During Holsopple’s time at Florida, the Gators won the 2008 national championship and SEC title and finished with a 50-17 record. Holsopple joined the Florida staff in May 2007, after spending the 2006-07 season with the University of Kentucky men’s basketball team.

McCay on hand for hoops Former Bishop Miege High wide receiver Justin McCay, who has announced that he will transfer from Oklahoma, was in Lawrence on Wednesday night to take in the KU-K-State men’s basketball game. McCay, a redshirt freshman who played in three games this season because of injury, sat in the KU student section with a handful of other recruits and Tim Grunhard, who coached McCay in high school. McCay has received a release from OU and reportedly is deciding between KU and K-State. Missouri also may remain in the mix for McCay, a former fivestar prospect who was the topranked player in Kansas according to during his senior year of high school.

WVU routs Clemson, 70-33 Baylor beat Washington 67-56 in the Alamo Bowl. “Never could we imagine we’d put up 70 points,� Smith said. The Mountaineers (10-3) won in their first Orange Bowl appearance and improved to 3-0 in Bowl Championship Series games. “The guys wanted to come in and make a statement, and the only way you can do that is if you play well on all three sides of the ball,� coach Dana Holgorsen said. Clemson (10-4) lost playing in its first major bowl in 30 years. “We’re a better team than we played tonight,� coach Dabo Swinney said. “Just too many mistakes. But we’ll be back.� The offensive showcase was the latest in a succession this bowl season, and perhaps the last. Defense is expected to dominate in the final BCS game Monday night when Louisiana State faces Alabama for the national title. Tacklers had their hands full — or rather, they didn’t — on a chilly night in Miami. Smith and Austin combined on scoring passes of 8, 27, 3 and 37 yards, and Shawne Alston scored on two short runs for West Virginia, which totaled 589 yards and 31 first downs. Smith was chosen the game’s



MIAMI (AP) — The West Virginia Mountaineers were tough to slow down, and only the Orange Bowl mascot could stop Darwin Cook. Geno Smith tied the record for any bowl game with six touchdown passes, and the No. 23-ranked Mountaineers set a bowl scoring record Wednesday night with their high-powered offense. But safety Cook made the pivotal play by returning a fumble 99 yards for a touchdown to break the game open and help rout No. 14 Clemson, 70-33. Cook collided comically with mascot Obie after scoring one of the Mountaineers’ five TDs in the second quarter, including three in the final 2:29 for a 49-20 lead. It was the highest-scoring half by a team in a bowl game. “I always envisioned making great plays,� Cook said. “If you think it will happen, it will happen.� Tavon Austin tied a record for any bowl game with four touchdown catches. Smith went 31-for42 and had 401 yards passing to break Tom Brady’s Orange Bowl record. Smith also ran for a score, helping West Virginia break the bowl record for points established six nights earlier when

outstanding player. Even when Clemson managed to corral the Mountaineers, the play wasn’t always over. Andrew Buie rolled over a defender but was never downed, so he got up and ran for an additional 18 yards. Clemson couldn’t keep up, although Andre Ellington did score the game’s first points on a 68-yard run. First-team AllAmericans Sammy Watkins and Dwayne Allen combined for only seven catches for 87 yards. Amid the flurry of points, it was a defender who came up with the second-longest scoring play in Orange Bowl history. Clemson was on the verge of taking the lead in the second quarter when Ellington ran up the middle and disappeared into a heap at the 1. A teammate signaled touchdown, but the ball came loose and Cook grabbed it, then took off with nothing but the end zone in front of him. “I saw the ball come loose,� he said. “I grabbed it. I didn’t hear a whistle, so I ran.� After Cook crossed the goal line, he gleefully leaped on mascot Obie, a smiling orange, and they both tumbled to the turf. Obie rose unhurt.

Withey heeds ‘dunk everything’ advice ————

Kansas big man bounces back from benching with big game against KSU By Jesse Newell

When Kansas University forward Jeff Withey received a pass from teammate Elijah Johnson on the baseline midway through the second half, three words from assistant coach Kurtis Townsend rattled through his head. “Just dunk everything.” “He’s been saying that all season,” Withey said following KU’s 67-49 victory over Kansas State on Wednesday night. “He wants me to go up strong and dunk everything. He tells me that every day.”

So Withey tried it ... and succeeded, going right over KSU’s 6-foot-11 forward Jordan Henriquez. “I got pumped up for sure,” Withey said. “That kind of led another streak. We started getting a rhythm.” The rim-shaking jam was part of a 14-3 second-half run, as KU extended a four-point lead to 15. It also was the highlight of a bounceback night for Withey, who had eight points on 3-for-4 shooting with nine rebounds in 24 minutes. In KU’s last game against North Dakota on Saturday,

the 7-foot junior played just “He just wanted us to exeight minutes — including ecute and do everything only 24 seconds right,” Withey in the second said. “We defiI wasn’t that aghalf. nitely weren’t “I wasn’t that gressive last game.

I mance. took my medicine, and I

learned from it,” Withey said. “After the game, it was over. That’s all I thought about it.” KU guard Tyshawn Taylor also noticed that Withey stayed even-keeled in practices following Saturday’s game. “Jeff kind of has the same face every time: He’s got that poker face that people talk about,” Taylor said. “His emotions come out every now and then, and it’s mad surprising, but he was cool. He understood what he had to do.” Withey also contributed six blocks against KSU, which

tied for his second-most in a game this season. The San Diego native leads the Big 12 in blocks at 41, six above Baylor’s Quincy Acy. Withey was especially pleased with his second half against the Wildcats, when he grabbed eight of his nine rebounds after halftime. “Last game was definitely frustrating, but, oh well. It’s in the past. It’s a new game,” Withey said. “Coach always says, ‘Move forward.’ It was a good start for the Big 12 season and definitely a confidence-booster after last game.”

KANSAS COACH BILL SELF TRIES TO CALM down the Jayhawks after a series of turnovers during the second half.

TYSHAWN TAYLOR (10) LOSES THE HANDLE on a ball at halfcourt during the first half. Taylor had eight turnovers Wednesday.

had Travis get 11. Those guys did a great job getting on the glass. Other than McGruder (Rodney, five boards, 15 points, 39 minutes) and Samuels (Jamar, five boards, 12 points) getting loose a few times, I thought we did a pretty good job on the glass. There were not many possessions we didn’t put ourselves in good position to rebound the ball.” Why? “I think so much of this game is what you emphasize, and guys respond to that,” Self said. “I made a pretty big deal ... against North Dakota I didn’t play guys in the second half at all because they didn’t go after the ball. Sometimes guys respond to those type of things. Of late we emphasized hitting somebody and going after the ball with two hands, who is going to get 70 percent of the balls in the air with nobody having possession of them? That’s been our emphasis more than execution.” And so KU (11-3 overall, 1-0 Big 12) did suffer 20 turnovers while dishing eight assists. KSU (11-2, 0-1) had 13 turnovers and just six assists. Robinson scored eight points, Releford five, Taylor four and Withey four as KU raced to a 23-5 lead. The Wildcats, who trailed, 35-20, at halftime, made it a game — 39-36 — with 12:31 to play. That’s when senior guard Conner Teahan (six points, 22 minutes) hit back-to-back threes sandwiched around a KSU bucket, giving KU a 45-38 margin at 10:49. The Jayhawks continued on a 17-5 run, opening a 56-41 lead at

THOMAS ROBINSON SIGNALS A THREE-POINT BASKET by Connor Teahan during a KU run to pull away from the Wildcats. 7:11. Robinson also had four points in that surge and Releford three. “Conner bailed us out. I thought Conner made the biggest shots of the game,” Self said.

Of the shots, Teahan said: “I thought we were kind of laboring at the time. We were a little tight. When you get tight, the defense can sense it. I wanted to help get our confidence back up.”

Teahan, who berated himself publicly after KU’s loss to Davidson, was thrilled to help beat rival KSU with important shots Wednesday. “That Davidson loss hurt. I’ve thought about it a lot. I still think about it,” Teahan said. “It’s good to get a big win over K-State and start the Big 12 right. My freshman year, we lost to them in Manhattan. Since then, it’s been a much bigger rival to me.” KU will next meet Oklahoma at 1 p.m. Saturday at Noble Center in Norman, Okla.

K-State’s Martin bemoans board battle By Matt Tait

Nick Krug/Journal-World Photo

KANSAS STATE COACH FRANK MARTIN, LEFT, and assistant Brad Underwood sit quietly on the bench late in the second half.

He flapped his arms, barked at officials, tore into his players and flashed his many ferocious faces throughout the game. Kansas State basketball coach Frank Martin on Wednesday did everything he had done thus far to help the Wildcats race to an 11-1 start and a No. 23 national ranking. His team, however, did not join him, and the Wildcats were rocked, 67-49 by No. 14 Kansas University at Allen Fieldhouse. The biggest culprit for Kansas State was rebounding. The Wildcats, who came in outrebounding opponents by more than seven boards a game — good for 25th nationally — were outworked, 5026, in this one. “In 27 years, including coaching 13-year-olds, I’ve never been a part of a game that our team got its tail wh-

upped in the physical part of the game the way we did today,” Martin said. The tone for KU’s dominant night on the glass was set early, when Kansas jumped to a 23-5 lead 11 minutes in and held a 35-20 halftime lead. Martin was not surprised. He’s seen plenty of teams in purple suffer similar fates inside Allen Fieldhouse. In fact, he’s so familiar with it, he even predicted it would happen. “I told you guys that 10 minutes into the game, the game would probably be over. And that’s kind of what happened,” said Martin, referencing a Tuesday meeting with the media. Although he has yet to crack the code of what it takes to play well in Lawrence, Martin certainly qualifies as an expert when it comes to explaining why so many teams struggle in front of one of the best home-court advantages in college basketball. “It’s a combination of three

things,” Martin said. “It’s an incredible atmosphere, they’ve got very good players, and they’re coached by one of the best. You put those three things together, there’s a reason they’ve won 83 of their last 85 or whatever it is.” According to Martin’s astute observations, the biggest obstacle for just about every team that plays at Allen Fieldhouse comes in the opening minutes. “It’s deflating,” he said. “That’s the problem with the first five or six minutes of the game here. I think every team that comes in here feels it. It’s not just us. I watch tape. I see everybody’s down 12-2 to start the game here. It’s unbelievable. You take so much effort and energy to get yourself back to where you can manage the game, and then you make a mistake and they make you pay.” The animated K-State coach so believes in the difficulty of playing well on KU’s home floor that he

even cracked a joke about his team’s first point of the night. “I almost called a timeout when we went up 1-0,” Martin said. “I was so excited we had a one-point lead in the first half.” Although things did not start nor end well for the Wildcats on Wednesday, they did show pieces of the team that had been trending upward in recent weeks. A 10-0 KSU run early in the second half cut Kansas’ lead to 39-36 with 12:20 to play. But two three-pointers from KU sharp-shooter Conner Teahan kept the ’Cats at bay. Moments later, after a Will Spradling three-pointer trimmed KU’s lead to 47-41, Kansas responded with a 9-0 run that finished off the Wildcats for good and featured a Travis Releford three-pointer and three straight dunks. “(Martin) said his past teams had the same problems,” Spradling said. “And we came out the same way we did last year. That hurts.”


‘Old man’ lauded Bill Self on the performance of Travis Releford (16 points, 11 rebounds): “Travis played great. He has the best old man’s game of anybody I have ever seen for a young guy. Just think about when he is over 40 and playing. He is going to dominate. He drives in there and reverse pivots and does things that look awkward, but he does some really good things.”

Happy birthday to Olive Olive Vorse of Topeka attended her first KU game Wednesday on her 104th birthday. The KU student section behind the north goal sang “Happy Birthday” to Vorse before the contest. “I love basketball more than the other sports. It’s exciting being here,” Vorse said before the game.

TRAVIS RELEFORD (24) HITS THE DECK FOR A POSSESSION in the second half. Releford’s hustle helped KU beat Kansas State, 67-49, Wednesday at Allen Fieldhouse.


on a night KU won the battle of the boards, 50-26. Self challenged the players all week to a competition, urging each one to be the first to hit the floor for a loose ball. Releford was the winner. Kansas State won the jump ball, and a few seconds into it, Releford tied up his opponent to force another jump ball. Shortly after that, he ripped the ball right out of a Wildcat’s hands to steal a possession. He made some mistakes, throwing errant passes, and

misfired some shots, but he made six of 11, and he followed one of those misses with a successful put-back, another by flying out of bounds and firing a pass to the lane that led to a bucket. “I said something to him at halftime about how he got it started off on the right foot, right off the get-go with that jump ball,” said Conner Teahan, who hit back-toback, back-breaking threepointers in the second half. “Everybody came up to him and said something. We had a saying, ‘first loose ball.’ Travis got that loose ball. Then he got an offensive rebound, knocked that three down. He gave us confidence with his play early on. He played a great game today.”

A blue-collar basketball player who earns his playing time by frustrating smooth basketball artists into ugly performances, Releford keeps his approach simple. He’s the see-the-ball, hitthe-ball guy in the batting order, the pitcher who zones in on the catcher’s mitt and tries to hit the target. Kansas coach Bill Self harped on the need to dominate the boards in the days leading into the game. Sounded simple enough to Releford. “We had our mind set on trying to control the glass, and we came out and did it,” Releford said. One Big 12 game down, 17 to go.

Recruiting Future KU guard Conner Frankamp scored 42 points to lead Wichita North to a 68-60 win over Wichita Southeast on Tuesday. Frankamp scored a Wichita City League-record 52 points as a sophomore in a double-overtime loss to Wichita Northwest. Future KU forward Perry Ellis had 23 points in helping Wichita Heights to its 49th straight victory, a 63-46 win over Carroll. In the house Chiefs running back Dexter McCluster attended and wore a KU cap. — GARY BEDORE

Check on neighbors’ home situation, but carefully Annie’s Mailbox

Marcy Sugar and Kathy Mitchell

this conflict is doing to their children, but I’m not sure what to say. Is this something to call Child Protective Services about? My heart is breaking to see these two darling little girls scared and crying all the time. — Distraught Neighbor Dear Distraught: Kids can live without cable and Internet access, but shutting off the electricity and watching their mother walk out is something else entirely. Of course, unless you knock on their door, you will have no idea what is really going on. Please do not go alone. If the situation is as bad as it seems, anything could happen and you should indeed call the authorities. You also can discuss it with the school counselor, who should be aware of the students’ home situation. Dear Annie: My son will be graduating in June. His microwave oven needed replacing, so my Dad offered to purchase the microwave, adding, “That’s

Is ‘Stuffers’ too dark (and funny) for Animal Planet?

“American Stuffers” (9 p.m., Animal Planet) follows the formula of many recent series. It’s set in rural America — Romance, Ark., to be exact. Several characters describe themselves as “rednecks” with unabashed pride. It follows one man’s exotic trade and features workplace shenanigans and lighthearted marital tiffs. Daniel Ross is both the boss and owner of Xtreme Taxidermy and the sole voice of sanity. If you can consider the foremost practitioner of pet taxidermy to be entirely sane. Daniel has a loving schoolteacher wife, a few cute, indifferent sons and a shop full of characters. I’m particularly intrigued by Fred, a silent, self-trained fellow who just “drifted” into the shop and the trade. Seriously, Daniel has to remind Fred to wear a shirt while skinning dead animals. But the real stars of the show are the very odd clients, like a grizzled biker who arrives to pick up the stuffed version of his dead dog, Turd. He repeatedly tells us that Turd was like a child. Only I’m pretty sure that if you name your child Turd, you get a call from Social Services. Even in Romance, Ark. Other morbid moments concern a giant tattooed guy and his petite wife who drop off their deceased Chihuahua, Toot Toot, for the Xtreme treatment. For all of the grotesque shots of the taxidermy process, these scenes of dead little pets and their limp, inert bodies are the most jarring and heart-wrenching. Toot Toot’s owners insist that his crossed eyes and lazy tongue be immortalized just so. And that’s no small matter when you are faced with the task of disemboweling a tiny dog, then gouging out its eyes and restuffing, sewing, baking, freeze-drying and posing it to resemble the Toot Toot of yore. Many of those grim procedures fall to Dixie, the new college intern, who barely stifles her gag reflexes before settling into the workplace routine. What people will do to get on television! Clearly inspired by Errol Morris’ 1978 classic pet cemetery documentary “Gates of Heaven,” this series puts great emphasis on humans and the way they stumble toward profundity when confronted with eternity in the guise of a dead pet. One mourner-turned-art appreciator invokes Maya Angelou during a particularly emotional ramble. Fans of Flannery O’Connor’s short stories should not miss this. For all of its hifalutin’ appeal, I fear “Stuffers” may be the most controversial and hated series in the network’s history. And should “Stuffers” alienate Animal Planet’s core audience of critter lovers, I fully expect this show to be deader than Toot Toot after a short, but memorable, run.

Tonight’s other highlights

your graduation present.” When my brother needed a new tire, Dad bought it, saying, “That’s your birthday present,” even though his birthday was not for another six months. When I needed auto repair work in August, Dad said, “That’s your Christmas present.” He keeps a tally of his gifts and shows up at birthday parties and Christmas gatherings empty-handed, and then reminds you, very publicly, of what he did for you. We appreciate his generosity, but these gift consolidations feel more like business transactions with no connec-

tion to the occasion. Are we missing something? — Not Ungrateful Dear Not: Dad has a finite amount to spend on gifts. When he sees that you need something, he wants to help but doesn’t have the means or desire to then purchase an additional gift for your special occasions. He reminds you at the parties because he worries you won’t remember that he already gave you something. It’s a harmless quirk, but if you’d prefer a birthday gift, simply refuse his offers to repair your car.

JACQUELINE BIGAR’S STARS For Thursday, Jan. 5: This year, focus on the quality of your daily life. To make your life work, take good care of your health, treat yourself well and follow a sensible lifestyle. If you are single, you could meet someone through the process of living. If you are attached, the two of you will experience more happiness if you share a common hobby. Gemini, though different, also is efficient. The Stars Show the Kind of Day You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult Aries (March 21-April 19)  Confusion surrounds the beginning of the workday. Keep asking questions, and clear out the present haze. Tonight: Talking up a storm. Taurus (April 20-May 20)  What might be presented as an opportunity could be nothing less than a problem once you gain a clear perspective. You might be stunned, but your knee-jerk reaction opens up a situation. Tonight: Your treat. Gemini (May 21-June 20)  Let your mind wander. You might want to back up an idea by doing

Dear Annie: Last January, a couple moved to our town, and their two daughters began attending school with my 11-year-old daughter. The older girl is the same age as mine, and they became friends. Throughout the summer, the girls played at our house and theirs, but recently, some things have begun to disturb me. Three months ago, the girls’ father apparently told the mother to get a job. When she didn’t, he cut off their cellphone service. When that didn’t convince her to find employment, he cut off their landline, the cable and their Internet service. The girls said he told their mother he wasn’t going to pay for any of these things, and that if she wanted them, she’d better pay for them herself. So far, the mother hasn’t attempted to look for work. I’ve had both girls over to my house as much as possible so they can use the computer to play games and watch our TV. Last weekend, both girls began crying, saying their father wouldn’t give their mother any money for Christmas, and that he plans to cut off the electricity at the end of the week. The mother told him that if he did that, she would leave — without the girls. I feel terribly sorry for these children but don’t know either of the parents very well. I’ve considered going to their home and telling them what
