Renovations add new life, soul to church

Wireless network gives KU a global edge By Matt Erickson

By Rebekka Schlichting

When Maxine Graves, one of the oldest active members of First Christian Church, walked into her church recently, she got tears in her eyes. The 88-yearold woman was stunned. She never thought it would look as beautiful as it does now. “I think it’s great progress,” said Graves, who has attended First Christian since 1950. “It’s time we did something. The whole sanctuary needs to be done every so often because things get so worn.” Renovations to First Christian Church, 1000 Kentucky St., started in mid-August and ended on Dec. 28. The road to improvement did not stop the congregation from worship. They still met every Sunday for service. One Sunday in October, they met in the church parking lot under a tent. The church was built in 1908. In 1962 and 1991, additions were made. The old building’s climate was at the mercy of a boiler system, which meant almost every room was uncomfortable during cold winters and hot summers. “In the sanctuary, we had the old-fashioned radiators from 1908,” the Rev. David Rivers said. “In the winter, no one would sit in the middle because all of the heat was on the outside.”

THE FIRST CHRISTIAN CHURCH CHOIR performs during church service Sunday. Renovations to the church included cosmetic and mechanical upgrades. An open house is planned for Feb 3. The entire building now has a central heating and cooling system. The main floor also went through some major changes. The carpet is new. The walls are painted different shades of green to complement the original stained-glass windows. And the chancel includes a giant wooden cross, wooden baptistry and stained-glass chalice.

“The new carpet and the new paint are representative of the excitement that’s going on in the church now,” said Glenn Prescott, church moderator. “There’s a renewed enthusiasm in the community for LINK and what the church does.” LINK, the Lawrence Interdenominational Nutrition Kitchen, provides a hangout place at the church and lunch four

times a week for needy people and families. The church also is home to the approximately 30-year-old Giving Tree Preschool and a new program called the Helping Hands Closet, which helps homeless people transition into housing by providing various household items.

Holed up for days in libraries in Vienna or Warsaw, Poland, poring through 100-year-old documents, Nathan Wood has often wished he could just pop onto the Internet on his laptop. He could use Google Translate to check a Polish word or phrase he didn’t know, or look up an article referenced somewhere. But half a world away from his home base at KANSAS Kansas Univer- UNIVERSITY sity, wireless Internet access is often impossible. So when Wood read last month that KU had become one of a handful of American universities to sign onto eduroam — a service widespread in Europe that allows faculty or students from a participating education or research institution to log onto a secure wireless network at any other one — he immediately wrote a thankyou note to the KU Information Technology office. “For me, this was a really good relief,” said Wood, an associate professor of Eastern European history at KU.

Education issues likely to resurface in Legislature this year By Peter Hancock

State Rep. Kasha Kelley has never served on the House Education Committee before. In her first four terms in the Legislature, the Arkansas City Republican has mainly been known as a leading conser-

vative voice on the tax and budget committees. So it came as something of a s u r p r i s e Kelley when newly elected House Speaker Ray Merrick named Kel-

Despite her lack of experience in managing education bills, Kelley said she’s aware of the hefty load of issues that could come up in the 2013 session. Those include fallout from the pending school finance lawsuit and the possibility of revisiting Gov. Sam Brownback’s

Constitution Hall brought back to life

City plans for extra trash; burrito place seeking co-tenant H

ALAN SHIRRELL, OF TECUMSEH, STORMS OUT OF A MEETING with his Bible overhead as he portrays John Brown during a re-enactment of a territorial Kansas town hall meeting at Constitution Hall in Lecompton on Sunday. The historical play, called ”Kansas Territorial Characters,” was performed by the Lecompton Re-enactors.

Politics of Bleeding Kansas era on display By Ian Cummings

A public meeting in Lecompton on Sunday was marred by bitter partisan division, accusations of voter fraud, arguments about guns and troubling examples of violence in American society. Those might sound like current issues today, but this meeting at the Constitution Hall State Historic Site was actually a re-enactment of an 1850s town hall meeting. The major issue of the time was slavery, the politicians who came to debate it were often armed to the teeth, and northeastern Kansas was a powder keg about to explode into a cycle of revenge

The re-enactment, a historical play called “Kansas Territorial Characters,” is one of two written by J. How-

ard Duncan and regularly performed by the Lecompton Re-enactors, an acting troupe associated with the Kansas Historical Society. Duncan wrote the

play based on historical records from the period of 1854 to 1861, and it is designed for middle school audiences. Sunday’s performance brought Constitution Hall back to life, re-creating a time when Lecompton was the seat of government for territorial Kansas. In the 1850s, the hall was the place where the governor, senators from Kansas and Missouri, and area residents debated politics, including whether Kansas should be a free state or a slave state. Many came armed with guns and knives, and death threats were routine. Abolitionist John Brown, played Please see MEETING, page 4A

oliday season has been replaced by trash season in many Lawrence households. Most of you surely know how it goes: For every pound in gifts you receive, you most likely have two pounds of packaging and gift wrapping to throw away. And don’t even get me started about all the trash the holiday dinner produces — napkins, linens, tablecloths, ceiling tiles. (A holiday dinner with a 6-year-old and 9-year-old who know they can’t open presents until they finish their meal can get a little messy.) Lots of trash following the holiday season is nothing new, but what is new in Lawrence is the city’s trash system that requires households to use a city-mandated trash cart. Those carts only hold so much trash, and the city has said it expects households only to set out as much trash as will fit in the carts. But the city also has said it basically will give households three times a year where it can exceed those amounts. More than three times a year, though, may result in the city saying you need a larger cart or an additional cart. Those larger carts come with a larger monthly bill. So, the question has been: Does this holiday season and all the trash it produces count against your three exemptions? The answer: No. “We are the kinder, gentler, more understanding Solid Waste Division,” said Chuck Soules, the city’s di-

Town Talk

Chad Lawhorn

rector of public works. “We definitely understand people have visitors during the holidays and are going to have extra trash. We’re more than happy to take extra bags during the holiday season.” Tammy Bennett, the assistant director of public works who oversees the day-today operations of the trash system, said solid waste employees won’t be keeping track of households that set out extra trash either this week or next week. But Bennett said on most other weeks (move-out and move-in week likely will be exceptions), crews will be keeping records of households that set out more trash than can be contained in their cart. “We feel like we have to keep track of it to be fair and accurate for everybody,” Bennett said. Bennett said the department has come up with a slogan that summarizes the city’s policy on extra trash: Take it, tag it, switch it. Please see TOWN TALK, page 4A

Agencies planning volunteer opportunities in honor of MLK Day Staff Reports

Agency: United Way Roger Hill Volunteer Center Contact: 785-865-5030 or

Boys and Girls Club will be hosting a food drive at several of its sites to benefit Just Food. The food drive will take place throughout the week leading up to MLK Day (Jan. 14 to Jan. 18). Volunteers are needed on the afternoon of Friday, Jan. 18, to pick up the food collections from various elementary school sites and deliver them to Just Food. Ideally, a few volunteers will divide up the number of locations and will be available from 3:30-6 p.m. to do staggered deliveries to the Just Food warehouse. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got a large enough vehicle to pick up barrels of food donations and would enjoy being a part of the clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s effort to help support a local food bank, we need you. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Lawrence Habitat for Humanity is hosting a special build day for MLK Day, which is Monday, Jan. 21, and is looking for up to 12 community members to come out and help work on its 81st Lawrence home. Building tasks could range from painting to helping install doors to working on the exterior of the house; there is something for every volunteerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s skill level. Volunteers must be at least 16 years old; any volunteer under 18 must have a parent/ guardian sign a waiver. Lunch will be provided. Make your MLK Day a day on, not a day off!

embarking on its Winter 2013 Volunteer Training, which starts Saturday, Feb. 2. Volunteers will go through a 40-hour training session designed to prepare advocates to work directly with survivors of domestic violence. The classes will meet on occasional Saturdays and will have weekly sessions from 5:45-7:45 p.m. Wednesdays. If you are interested in attending this training, please contact Becca Burns no later than Friday, Jan. 18, at 785331-2034, ext. 104, or at bburns@willowdvcenter. org.

 The Safe Winter Walkways program is still in need of several volunteers. The program, which is a partnership between the city of Lawrence and Douglas County Senior Services, matches volunteers to community members who are unable to remove snow from their walkways. Volunteers are asked to commit to visiting the residence of whomever theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re matched to within 48 hours of each significant snowfall (2 or more inches) throughout the winter. Please consider signing up to be a volunteer in this program and help out the most vulnerable residents of the community. You can sign up online at or by calling 785-832-3338.

The United Way Roger Hill Volunteer Center has collaborated with some local agencies to coordinate volunteer projects for the Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service (MLK Day), which is just around the corner. Volunteer opportunities are listed below, and you can sign up by visiting VolunteerDouglasCounty. org or by contacting the volunteer center at 785-865-5030 or â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The Boys and Girls Club of Lawrence will be working on two projects in the coming weeks to honor Martin Luther King Jr. Club kids around Lawrence will be creating reflections of what Kingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s legacy means to them, specifically his commitment to service. Volunteers are needed to select a number of the reflections and turn them into a display that can be viewed at community MLK Day celebrations. The selections and display would need to be complete by Friday, Jan. 18. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d enjoy reading what local students have to say about Kingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s legacy â&#x20AC;&#x201D; For more volunteer opporand/or would have fun tunities, contact Shannon Reid at creating a display for oththe United Wayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Roger Hill Voler community members unteer Center, at 785-865-5030 to see, this is the volun- Immediate needs or, or go to

In the Bleeding Kansas era, this was politics as usual. Two governments existed in Kansas, one free-state and the other pro-slavery, and each accused the other of starting the violence. At times on Sunday, the rhetoric was extreme: Kansas Sen. Jim Lane closed his speech by calling for all Missouri slavery supporters to have their throats cut. Lane was played by Tim Rues, administrator of the Lecompton historic site, who said the abolitionist senator was not speaking figuratively. â&#x20AC;&#x153;His solution was, basically, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;kill them all,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Rues said. The play shows the consequences of the violence, too. A widowed settler, played by Charlene Winter, of Lecompton, wept as she recounted how John Brown killed her husband and two of her sons. Brown was also accused on Sunday of kidnapping a man, shooting him in

Winter said. The Lecompton actors group performs about 35 times a year for schools or tour groups visiting the Lecompton historic site. Some of the local actors actually portray their own ancestors from the area. Audience members are encouraged to participate as if they were attending the meeting as Kansas residents of the time.

Three more performances of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Kansas Territorial Charactersâ&#x20AC;? will be given in the next few months, on March 3, April 7 and May 5.

crews simply will take it and move on. The second time, crews will take the trash but also leave a tag reminding the household of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s trash policy. The third time, crews will take it but also leave a note indicating the city would be in touch about switching the household to a larger cart. Bennett, though, said the department was committed to be understanding of special circumstances. For instance, one Town Talk reader mentioned to me how her household had a lot of extra trash because of sewage backup. Bennett said in cases like that, a household can call the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s solid waste division (832-3032) and explain the situation, and the event wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be counted as one of the householdâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s three exemptions. Bennett said the city plans to keep track of the extra trash on a calendar year basis, but she said the system is subject to change as the city learns more about it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have to make sure we are getting it right for the customer,â&#x20AC;? Bennett said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our main goal in this is we want to make sure that customers have the right size container for the majority of the year.â&#x20AC;?

Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a search under way for a new nesting partner. No, the search isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t for me. (It was a long vacation, but my wife didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tire of me so much that she kicked me out of the nest.) Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m talking about a different bird: Freebirds Burrito. As we reported in July, restaurant chain Freebirds World Burrito has signed a deal to locate in a portion of the former Maurices building at 739 Massachusetts St. in downtown, and now is looking for a co-tenant for the space. We reported this summer that the restaurant was set to open by the end of October, and then Freebirds seemed to become about as ground-

â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Tammy Bennett, assistant director of public works who oversees the day-to-day operations of the trash system ed as the Kansas University football teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s passing game did this fall. Well, work is clearly under way now, and a spokeswoman with Freebirds told me the restaurant is scheduled to open near the end of January, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve since seen where the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website is listing Jan. 31 as the storeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s grand opening date. Caitlin Noble â&#x20AC;&#x201D; director of marketing for Kansas City-based FBMidwest Development, which is the franchisee for Freebirds in the Midwest â&#x20AC;&#x201D; confirmed Freebirds will take about two-thirds of the former Maurices building. The other third will be left for another tenant. Noble said another tenant hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t yet been found. No word yet on whether Freebirds is open to another restaurant locating in the spot, or whether they will hold out for a more traditional retailer. My understanding is that Freebirds is in control of the space because it has leased the entire building and will sublease the remaining space. For those of you who have forgotten what the heck a Freebird is, it is more than just a really long Lynyrd Skynyrd song that disc jockeys play when they need to take a bathroom break. But it is a little funky like Skynyrd. According to the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website, the chain got started in 1987 by a couple of â&#x20AC;&#x153;ex-hippiesâ&#x20AC;? in Santa Barbara, Calif. The company then expanded into College Station, Texas, where the restaurant became a

hit with Texas A&M students, which is odd as Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m almost certain the restaurant doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t serve eggs Benedict. Benedict, as in Benedict Arnold. Famous traitor. Texas A&M and its Big 12 betrayal. (This is not good: The first column of 2013, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m already having to explain jokes.) What the restaurant does serve is a large mix of burritos, tacos, nachos and other similar dishes. Freebirds promotes that it is uses hormone-free, grassfed beef and free-range chicken, which the website says goes back to the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hippie roots. Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s another thing that may go back to the restaurantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hippie founders: pot brownies. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve asked several hippies if those were popular back in the day, and they said they couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t remember. I took that as a sign that they were very popular. But before you grab your tie-dye and start forming a line at Freebirds, you should know that these pot brownies are named such because they are served in a black pot. (The tie-dye would still be fun, though.) When Freebirds opens in Lawrence, it will be the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s second Kansas location. Its first Kansas location opened in 2012 along Metcalf Avenue in Mission. It also has two Missouriside restaurants, in Leeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Summit and Kansas Cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Westport neighborhood. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; City reporter Chad Lawhorn can be reached at 832-6362.

ACCIDENT REPORT Emergency crews responded to a fatality accident early Sunday morning about three miles northeast of McLouth, according to Journal-World news partner Operation 100. Crews from Leavenworth and Jefferson Counties were dispatched to the accident in the 25000 block of Ragtown Road in western Leavenworth County around 4:45 Sunday morning. The accident scene is about six miles northwest of Tonganoxie near the intersection of 251st Street and Ragtown Road. According to KSHB News, two men were riding in a vehicle that left the road and overturned. The passenger, a 25-year-old Jefferson County man, died, and the driver, an 18-year-old man from the Topeka area, suffered minor injuries. He was released from an area hospital after undergoing a blood and alcohol test.

GOP leaders promise less conflict By John Hanna


If you have two people with the same political philosophy, supporting the same issues to TOPEKA â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Shaped by the same extent, then, sure, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not going childhood struggles and battles with cancer, the to have as much conflict.â&#x20AC;? Associated Press

Kansas Legislatureâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new conservative Republican leaders are committed to shrinking government and lowering taxes further, and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re promising less conflict among GOP lawmakers this year. Even opponents expect incoming Senate President Susan Wagle of Wichita and new House Speaker Ray Merrick of Stilwell to make good on pledges to reduce strife. Wagle and Merrick are allies of conservative Republican Gov. Sam Brownback, Wagle while the Senateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leaders were GOP moderates before last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s elections. Wagle, 59, survived Merrick multiple bouts of lymphoma since first being diagnosed with cancer in the 1990s, and her hair is still short from a round of chemotherapy last year. Merrick, 73, recalls a hardscrabble childhood after his birth in a log cabin in northern Alberta, Canada, and his biological fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s desertion of the family.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Working with each otherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; They said in a joint interview with The Associated Press the Legislatureâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s debates on the budget and economic issues will be shaped by ongoing uncer-

â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Outgoing Senate Majority Leader Jay Emler, on incoming Senate President Susan Wagle and new House Speaker Ray Merrick tainty about the national economy and the federal governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ability to manage its own finances. They said the state must keep trimming its own budget and follow up on massive income tax cuts approved last year to create economic opportunities and attract new residents. They said theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re determined to avoid what they see as the â&#x20AC;&#x153;dysfunctionâ&#x20AC;? of the past two years. A conservative-led House was often at odds with a Senate controlled by a coalition of GOP moderates and Democrats, hindering Brownbackâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s push for tax cuts, changes in the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s education funding formula and other initiatives. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There was an avoidance of communication during the last two years,â&#x20AC;? Wagle said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the big change â&#x20AC;&#x201D; weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to be working with each other, talking to each other.â&#x20AC;? Merrick interjected: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a long walk across the rotunda.â&#x20AC;?

Experience, background Wagle and Merrick are set to take over new jobs when the Legislature opens its 2013 session Jan. 14. Each leader has served in both chambers and believes that fact will smooth the relationship between their Republican majorities, 32-8 in the Senate and 92-33 in the House. Wagle served a decade

On the fly

Obama signs $9.7B bill for Sandy victims WASHINGTON â&#x20AC;&#x201D; President Barack Obama has signed into law a $9.7 billion bill to pay flood insurance claims from Superstorm Sandy. The law increases the borrowing authority of the Federal Emergency Management Agency. FEMA had warned that it was set to run out of money without additional dollars from Congress. The White House said more than 100,000 flood claim payments from Sandy would be delayed without the additional money. The House has yet to act on a larger, more comprehensive Sandy aid package. Republican leaders did not bring the bill to the floor before the last session of Congress adjourned.

in the House before being elected to the Senate in 2000. Merrick entered the House in 2000 and served four years as its majority leader before being appointed to fill a Senate vacancy in 2010. He ran again for the House last year, intending to seek the speakerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s job. Wagle and her husband own and operate a real estate leasing and management company. Merrick owns a shopping center maintenance business. Not only has Wagle survived cancer, but her youngest son, now 21, was diagnosed with leukemia a decade ago and needed treatment with umbilical cord stem cells. She said medical issues brought her family closer together and made obstacles in shepherding legislation minor. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re nothing like being told youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not going to live very long,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Any of us can die in a car accident tomorrow, and as long as Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m here, and as long as Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m able, I want to continue working. I want to continue being a mom.â&#x20AC;? She added: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no reason to shut down. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an indication of a bad attitude.â&#x20AC;? Merrick, delivered by a traveling nurse, still owns the family homestead in Canada. But his father was from Iowa, and his mother tracked him down and divorced him there, then worked three jobs to keep

her family together. One vivid memory for Merrick is receiving a bicycle as a child for Christmas. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I thought the neighbors had taken up a collection for me to get a bike,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Because she didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have any money. I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know she was scrimping and saving to get me a bike.â&#x20AC;? Merrick also served seven years in the Marine Corps and Marine reserves in the 1960s, lost confidence in President John F. Kennedy over the botched Bay of Pigs invasion of Cuba and embraced President Ronald Reagan. Both he and Wagle are members of the national board of directors of the American Legislative Exchange Council, which brings corporate leaders and conservative legislators together to draft model proposals on a wide range of subjects. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you have two people with the same political philosophy, supporting the same issues to the same extent, then, sure, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not going to have as much conflict,â&#x20AC;? said outgoing Senate Majority Leader Jay Emler, a moderate Lindsborg Republican. Emler said that despite policy disagreements, he had a good working relationship with his House counterpart the past two years. House Minority Leader Paul Davis, a Lawrence Democrat, blamed House Republicans for the conflicts, with conservatives there unseating Senate incumbents in primaries last year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Given that you wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a situation where the House Republican leadership has declared war on the Senate Republican leadership, it can only get better,â&#x20AC;? Davis said.

WASHINGTON â&#x20AC;&#x201D; President Barack Obama will nominate Chuck Hagel as his next defense secretary, a senior administration official said Sunday, choosing a former Senate colleague and a decorated Vietnam veteran and signaling heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ready for a contentious confirmation fight likely dominated by questions about Hagelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stands on Israel and Iran. Obama, who avoided a Capitol Hill battle by deciding not to nominate U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice as his first choice for secretary of state, went ahead with Hagel, 66, even as leading Republicans announced their opposition â&#x20AC;&#x201D; though they stopped short of saying they might try to block Hagel. Seeking to soften the ground, the White H o u s e was alerting Senate Democrats that Hagelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s selection as the Panetta successor to Defense Secretary Leon Panetta in Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s second-term Cabinet was imminent, according to a congressional official. Obama, who returned to Washington on Sunday from his Hawaiian vacation, was expected to nominate Hagel today. Congress is on break this coming week. The officials requested anonymity in order to discuss Hagelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nomination ahead of Obama.

Hagel, a moderate Republican, built a strong relationship with Obama during their travel as senators. But the former Nebraska lawmaker has faced withering criticism from Congress since emerging as the front-runner for the Pentagon post. Hagel is the second straight Obama favorite for a top national security post to face criticism from Capitol Hill even before being nominated. Rice withdrew her name from consideration for secretary of state amid charges from GOP senators that she misled the public in her initial accounting of the attacks on Americans at a diplomatic post in Benghazi, Libya. After Rice withdrew, Obama named Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass, to lead the State Department. Kerry is expected to be easily confirmed by his longtime Senate colleagues. If confirmed, Hagel would take over a Pentagon that faces budget cuts and a scaling back of the U.S.-led war in Afghanistan. Afghan President Hamid Karzai is expected to meet with Obama in Washington this week to discuss the U.S. presence in Afghanistan after the war formally concludes at the end of 2014. Hagel is likely to support a more rapid withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan. Sen. Mitch McConnell, the top Senate Republican, said earlier Sunday that he was reserving judgment on whether to support Hagel. But he predicted the former Nebraska senator would face serious questions about his stands on Iran and Israel.

Lawmakers dig in heels on debt crisis By Anne Flaherty Associated Press

WASHINGTON â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Congressional leaders on Sunday showed no signs of emerging from their corners to resolve the next step in the financial crisis, with Democrats still talking about higher taxes on the wealthy and the Senateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top Republican suggesting that a crippling default on U.S. loans was possible unless there were significant cuts in government spending. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a shame we have to use whatever leverage we have in Congress to get the president to deal with the biggest problem confronting our future, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s our excessive spending,â&#x20AC;? said Sen. Mitch McConnell, R-Ky. Last weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s deal to avert the combination of end-of-year tax increases and spending cuts known as the â&#x20AC;&#x153;fiscal cliffâ&#x20AC;? held income tax rates steady for 99 percent of Americans but left some other major pieces of business unresolved. By late February or early March, the Treasury Department will run out of options to cover the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s debts and could begin defaulting on government loans unless

Congress raises the legal borrowing limit, or debt ceiling. Economists warn that a default could trigger a global recession. Also looming are deep automatic spending cuts expected to take effect at the beginning of March that could further erase fragile gains in the U.S. economy. Then on March 27, the temporary measure that funds government activities expires, and congressional approval will be needed to keep the government McConnell running. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one more chance to fight over spending Lawmakers said debt talks will consume Congress in the coming weeks, likely delaying any consideration of an expected White House proposal on gun restrictions in the wake of the Connecticut school shooting. Republicans say they are willing to raise the debt ceiling but insist any increase must be paired with significant savings from Medicare, Medicaid and other government benefit programs. Presi-

dent Barack Obama has said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s willing to consider spending cuts separately but wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t bargain over the governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s borrowing authority. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One thing I will not compromise over is whether or not Congress should pay the tab for a bill theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve already racked up,â&#x20AC;? Obama said in his weekly radio and Internet address. Democrats said further tax increases for the wealthiest Americans were still possible as Congress looks to close the gap between revenues and expenditures. Democrats point out that Obama has already agreed to significant spending cuts and that the latest deal only gets the nation to about half of the revenue it needs to resolve the red ink.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Trust me, there are plenty of things within that tax code â&#x20AC;&#x201D; these loopholes where people can park their money in some island offshore and not pay taxes. These are things that need to be closed. We can do that and use the money to reduce the deficit,â&#x20AC;? said Illinois Sen. Dick Durbin, the second-ranking Senate Democrat. House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi of California said she, too, wants to put â&#x20AC;&#x153;everything on the table from the standpoint of closing loopholes.â&#x20AC;? But McConnell bluntly declared that the â&#x20AC;&#x153;tax issue is overâ&#x20AC;? after last weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s agreement. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have this problem because we tax too little; we have it because we spend too much,â&#x20AC;? McConnell said.

Defiant Assad pledges to continue fighting By Zeina Karam Associated Press

BEIRUT â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A defiant Syrian President Bashar Assad rallied a chanting and cheering crowd Sunday to fight the uprising against his authoritarian rule, dismissing any chance of dialogue with â&#x20AC;&#x153;murderous criminalsâ&#x20AC;? that he blames for nearly two years of violence that has left 60,000 dead. In his first public speech in six months, Assad laid out terms for a peace plan that keeps himself in power, ignoring international demands to step down and pledging to continue the battle â&#x20AC;&#x153;as long as there is one terrorist leftâ&#x20AC;? in Syria. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What we started will not stop,â&#x20AC;? he said, standing at a lectern on stage at the regal Opera House in central Damascus â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a sign by the besieged leader that he sees no need to hide or compromise even with the violent civil war closing in on his seat of power in the capital. The theater was packed with his supporters who interrupted the speech with applause, cheers and occasional fist-waving chants, including â&#x20AC;&#x153;God, Bashar and Syria!â&#x20AC;? The overtures that Assad offered â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a national reconciliation conference, elections and a new constitution â&#x20AC;&#x201D; were reminiscent


SYRIAN PRESIDENT BASHAR ASSAD SPEAKS AT THE OPERA HOUSE in central Damascus, Syria, on Sunday in this photo released by the Syrian official news agency SANA. Assad outlined a new peace initiative that includes a national reconciliation conference and a new government and constitution but demanded regional and Western countries stop funding and arming rebels first. of symbolic changes and concessions offered previously in the uprising that began in March 2011. Those were rejected at the time as too little, too late. The government last year adopted a constitution that theoretically allows political parties to compete with Assadâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ruling Baath Party. It carried out parliamentary elections that were boycotted by his opponents.

Assad demanded that regional and Western countries must stop funding and arming the rebels trying to overthrow him. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We never rejected a political solution ... but with whom should we talk? With those who have an extremist ideology, who only understand the language of terrorism? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Or should we with negotiate puppets whom the

West brought?â&#x20AC;? he asked. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We negotiate with the master, not with the slave,â&#x20AC;? he answered. As in previous speeches and interviews, he clung to the view that the crisis was a foreign-backed plot and not an uprising against him and his familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decades-long rule. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Is this a revolution and are these revolutionaries? By God, I say they

are a bunch of criminals,â&#x20AC;? he said. He stressed the presence of religious extremists among those fighting in Syria, calling them â&#x20AC;&#x153;terrorists who carry the ideology of al-Qaidaâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;servants who know nothing but the language of slaughter.â&#x20AC;? He said the fighters sought to transform the country into a â&#x20AC;&#x153;jihad land.â&#x20AC;? Although he put up a defiant front, Assad laid out the grim reality of the violence, and he spoke in front of a collage of photos of what appeared to be Syrians killed in the fighting. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are now in a state of war in every sense of the word,â&#x20AC;? Assad said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;a war that targets Syria using a handful of Syrians and many foreigners. It is a war to defend the nation.â&#x20AC;? He said Syria will take advice but not dictates from anyone â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a reference to outside powers calling on him to step down. The speech, which was denounced by the West, including the U.S. and Britain, came amid stepped-up international efforts for a peaceful way out of the Syrian conflict. Previous efforts have failed to stem the bloodshed.

CENTENNIAL, COLO. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The suspect in the Colorado movie theater killings returns to court this week for a hearing that might be the closest thing to a trial the victims and their families will get to see. James Holmes, a former neuroscience graduate student, is charged with killing 12 people and injuring 70 by opening fire in a darkened theater in the Denver suburb of Aurora last July. At a weeklong preliminary hearing starting today, prosecutors will outline their case against Holmes, the first official public disclosure of their evidence. The judge will then determine whether to send the case to trial. Legal analysts said that evidence appears to be so strong that Holmes may well accept a plea agreement before trial. In such cases, the preliminary hearing can set the stage for a deal by letting each side assess the otherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s strengths and weaknesses, said Laurie Levenson, a former federal prosecutor and now a professor at Loyola

Wesson said. Court officials expect many survivors and family members of the dead to attend the preliminary hearing, along with scores of spectators and reporters. At least two overflow rooms are being prepared where the hearing can be observed by video and audio feeds.

BRIEFLY Clinton set to return to work today WASHINGTON â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The State Department said Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton will return to work today, a little over a week after she was hospitalized with a blood clot in her head. Clinton The department on Sunday released a schedule, which has Clinton meeting with assistant secretaries this morning. The most significant items on her agenda are meetings in Washington on Thursday and Friday with visiting Afghan President Hamid Karzai. Clinton was admitted to New York-Presbyterian Hospital on Dec. 30 after doctors discovered the blood clot while following up on a concussion she suffered earlier in December. She was released Wednesday.

Color Beatles photos to go up for sale LONDON â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Unpublished early color photographs of The Beatlesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; first U.S. tour will be sold at a U.K. auction. The photos were taken during the rock bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 1964 visit to the U.S., when color film was expensive and most images of the group were in black and white. The collection of 65 slides contains many stage shots, including George Harrison with his legendary red Rickenbacker guitar and close-up portraits from a Las Vegas Sahara Hotel press conference and Las Vegas Convention Centre gig. The images were taken by Dr. Robert Beck, who died in 2002 and left them in an archive of photographs and slides in his Hollywood home. Omega Auctions said Sunday the images will be sold March 22 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; exactly 50 years after The Beatles released their first album.

Medical charts could include exercise minutes


CHICAGO (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Roll up a sleeve for the blood pressure cuff. Stick out a wrist for the pulse-taking. Lift your tongue for the thermometer. Report how many minutes you are active or getting exercise. Wait, what? If the last item isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t part of the usual drill at your doctorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office, a movement is afoot to change that. One recent national survey indicated only a third of Americans said their doctors asked about or prescribed physical activity. Kaiser Permanente, one of the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest nonprofit health insurance plans, made a big push a few years ago to get its southern California doctors to ask patients about exercise. Since then, Kaiser has expanded the program across California and to several other states. Now almost 9 million patients are asked at every visit, and some other medical systems are doing it, too.

" * " ! ! &" ! +"

Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s how it works: During any routine check of vital signs, a nurse or medical assistant asks how many days a week the patient exercises and for how long. The number of minutes per week is posted along with other vitals at the top the medical chart. So itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s among the first things the doctor sees. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All we ask our physicians to do is to make a comment on it, like, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Hey, good job,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; or â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I noticed today that your blood pressure is too high and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not doing any exercise. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a connection there. We really need to start you walking 30 minutes a day,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? said Dr. Robert Sallis, a Kaiser family doctor. He hatched the vital sign idea as part of a larger initiative by doctors groups. He said Kaiser doctors generally prescribe exercise first, instead of medication, and for many patients who follow through thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s often all it takes.

Curriculum shift A shift to a new core curriculum at Kansas University may be painful, but the university can’t afford to simply maintain the academic status quo.


xactly what skills and knowledge should a Kansas University graduate have? Whatever that list includes, it’s reasonable to assume it has changed at least somewhat over the last 25 or 50 years. In an effort to meet those changing needs, KU is completing a multi-year process of developing a universitywide curriculum that it hopes will meet “the needs of and challenges faced by 21st century students.” This is the first time KU has attempted to establish a core curriculum that will apply to all undergraduate students, regardless of the school in which they are enrolled. Such a curriculum needs to be flexible but still address basic educational goals. What KU officials have come up with is a plan that probably will spur considerable confusion when it is implemented next fall but will offer students far more choices in fulfilling basic graduation requirements. It also will call on departments across the university to take a hard look at how they’ve been doing things and perhaps make some changes that better fit the new core goals. The educational goals set up under what’s being called the KU Core Curriculum seem solid. They promote skills like critical thinking, communication, social responsibility and creativity. They want students to learn something about culture, diversity and ethics as well as develop a “breadth of knowledge” across educational disciplines. The big difference is that students will have many more options for fulfilling their core requirements. Instead of being required to take Western Civilization, they can take another course that KU officials claim achieves the same goal. Rather than have about 900 undergraduates enrolled in a single required introductory communications course students will have more choices to fulfill those requirements. The university already has approved nearly 500 courses as part of the core curriculum. Each of the courses is identified according to which curriculum goals it meets. The content of the courses may not change much, but they now must justify how they fit into the core curriculum. For individual students, this means lot of choices. How they make those choices could have a profound effect on many university departments. Required courses provide a dependable source of jobs for graduate students, who depend on them to fund their education. They also give departments a guaranteed opportunity to introduce their subject to underclassmen and possibly recruit new majors. With the new curriculum, departments can be more creative in their course offerings, but they likely also will find themselves in an active competition to attract undergraduates and preserve their graduate programs. That could be good for some departments and not so good for others. These changes are heralded by many university officials, but there are others who suggest the changes are motivated to “dumb down” KU’s academic requirements and reduce student dropout numbers. The new core curriculum also may pose some challenges for students who choose to fulfill some of their undergraduate requirements at less-expensive community colleges. KU will have to communicate well with those schools to make sure students can transfer their credits into the new core. Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little referred to the curriculum change as “a profound experience in the life of a university,” which is “why people don’t do it too often.” Well-thought-out and challenging change can be painful but necessary if KU hopes to maintain its progress and academic standing. Here’s hoping the new core curriculum will prove to be a change for the better. LAWRENCE

Football has financial grip on colleges WASHINGTON — Yet another reason to revere Calvin Coolidge is that he thought the Chicago Bears were a circus act. In the 1920s, professional football was small beer compared to the already big business of college football. Which today prospers partly by selling beer: Watch the commercials that pay for the television contracts that have recently disordered many college football conferences and nullified what were solemnly called “traditional rivalries.” On the eve of the national championship game between Notre Dame and Alabama, which probably will have twothirds as many viewers as will the president’s inauguration, consider some curiosities of the sports-academia complex. According to Eric M. Leifer in “Making the Majors: The Transformation of Team Sports in America” (Harvard University Press, 1995), in the 1920s, the professional football Maroons of Pottsville, Pa., (population 23,000) drew such large crowds that the New York Giants chose to play them there rather than in Gotham. By the 1890s, Yale’s football receipts “accounted for one-eighth of the institution’s total income, an amount greater than its expenditures on law and medicine.” Before the late Myles Brand was president of Indiana University he was a philosophy professor, and when he left Indiana to become head of the NCAA, he waxed philosophical about entangling a huge entertainment business

Young men are, in television-speak, a ‘coveted demographic.’ Why? They buy beer and pickup trucks.” with higher education. It is, he said, “essentially malfeasance” for university administrators not to make the most of the money-making opportunities that sports present: “Athletics, like the university as a whole, seeks to maximize revenues.” In doing so, college football teams have abandoned old conferences and embraced new ones with more lucrative television and other payouts. College football has proved Karl Marx right about how capitalism dissolves old social arrangements: “uninterrupted disturbance of all social conditions, everlasting uncertainty and agitation ... all fixed, fast-frozen relations ... are swept away ... all that is solid melts into air.” Blame college football’s turmoil on male beer-drinking truck drivers, and technology. Young men are, in television-speak, a “coveted demographic.” Why? They buy beer and pickup trucks. But

like everyone else nowadays, they tape television programs and watch them later, fast-forwarding through commercials. The technology that makes this possible has caused the explosive growth of lucrative television contracts for sports broadcasting rights: Men cannot fast-forward through live sports telecasts. Monday night’s game should be sweet satisfaction for Father Theodore Hesburgh, 95, who managed to make athletic and academic excellence compatible. This year, Notre Dame is the first school in the history of the Bowl Championship Series to rank first in football and first in the graduation rate (tied with Northwestern) of its football players. Notre Dame graduates 97 percent; Alabama 75 percent. In this, Notre Dame benefits from a self-imposed recruiting handicap — the two-semester math requirement for all freshmen that prevents the university from recruiting many bluechip high school players. Hesburgh’s achievement was hard-won. In the 1920s, the first golden age of sports superstars (Babe Ruth, Red Grange, Jack Dempsey, Bill Tilden), Notre Dame under Knute Rockne, who became coach in 1918, was known as a football factory. Rockne’s most famous player, halfback George Gipp (played by Ronald Reagan in “Knute Rockne: All American”), was a hard-drinking gambler who bet on Notre Dame games. Beginning in 1941 under

coach Frank Leahy, Notre Dame came to dominate the sport as no team has since, with six undefeated seasons, including 39 games without a loss, and four national championships. But in 1949, when Hesburgh was appointed the university’s executive vice president and athletics chairman, he set out to make Notre Dame “the Harvard of the Midwest,” which required deemphasizing football. This required bringing to heel the imperious and mercurial Leahy, who flouted NCAA rules with illegal practices — and refused to speak to Hesburgh. Leahy was a national celebrity. In 1956, Leahy would second the nomination of Dwight Eisenhower at the Republican convention. In 1953, however, the steely Hesburgh had fired Leahy — never mind the talk about Leahy leaving because of health problems. Since then, Notre Dame’s football fortunes have varied but its academic reputation has risen steadily. Football has hardly lost its hold on the campus. The large mural on the library that overlooks the stadium shows Jesus with both arms raised and is famously called “Touchdown Jesus.” The statue of Father William Corby — a 19th-century president of the university — depicts him with his right hand held straight up and is known as “Fair Catch Corby.” And the statue of Moses with his index finger pointed skyward is “We’re Number One Moses.” — George Will is a columnist for Washington Post Writers Group.



From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for Jan. 7, 1913: “More snow YEARS fell during the night AGO and this morning IN 1913 there was more evidence that winter was really here and further that it intends to stay a while. There was a heavy snowfall early this morning and all during the day the thermometer kept low with very little indication of the storms breaking up.... The snow called forth the snow shoveler for the first time this season and this morning the streets were lined with a small army of men equipped with shovels and brooms cleaning off the walks.” — Compiled by Sarah St. John

Syrian rebels offer viable transition plan WASHINGTON — To help oust President Bashar alAssad, a Syrian opposition group has drafted a plan for a transitional justice system that would impose harsh penalties against diehard members of his inner circle but provide amnesty for most of his Alawite supporters. The goal is to provide a legal framework that reassures Alawites this isn’t a fight to the death, and that they will have a place in a post-Assad Syria. The plan would also encourage the rule of law in areas that have been liberated from Assad’s control, stemming the growing trend toward warlordism and revenge killings. To me, this legal transition plan is the best idea advanced so far by the Syrian rebels — because it addresses not just the brutality of the Assad regime but the real danger that Syria will descend into a chaotic failed state as the war continues and hatreds deepen. The U.S. and British governments support the ideas of accountability and reconciliation, in general, but haven’t endorsed any specific formula for Syria. The plan was prepared by the Syrian Support Group, which backs moderate elements within the Free Syrian Army, with help from international lawyers. The proposal has been communicated to leaders of the National

David Ignatius

To me, this legal transition plan is the best idea advanced so far by the Syrian rebels …” Coalition of Syrian Revolutionary and Opposition Forces, the umbrella organization for anti-Assad rebels. Advocates hope the international community will also endorse the plan at the next Friends of Syria meeting in Italy. The idea is similar to the “truth and reconciliation” process that helped resolve bitter conflicts in South Africa, Rwanda and Northern Ireland. “It sends a strong positive signal to the people of Syria that victory for the rebels is inevitable” and that the new government “will deliver justice, compensate victims and be compassionate towards all,” explains a legal memo prepared by McCue & Partners, a London firm that is advising the Syrian Support Group. The transition process would

begin with identification of 100 regime insiders whose defection could accelerate Assad’s fall. Some of these Assad supporters might be offered partial amnesty if they agreed to cooperate. The sooner they defected, the more leverage they might have under a future government. As part of the political transition, a compensation fund would be created to aid victims of the war. Alawites who aren’t in the inner circle would be offered “safe passage,” explains a Syrian Support Group memo outlining the plan. “Our intelligence reports show that many Alawites are standing with Assad for their own survival, because of misunderstanding of [opposition] plans for postAssad transitional justice system. Many feel they will be executed wholesale. ... This fact is helping Assad militarize the whole sect in a life and death fight [for] Damascus, with potential mass destruction of Damascus and gross loss of life.” Unless Alawite fears about communal survival are addressed directly, “this issue will not be solved necessarily by Assad leaving power, and will create a major risk for Syria’s future stability in years to come,” the Syrian Support Group memo warns. To implement the plan, the opposition would gather a team of Syrian legal experts. Among the possible names

suggested are Suhair al-Atassi, a prominent human rights activist and a vice president of the opposition coalition; Haitham al-Maleh, a former judge and longtime dissident; Anwar al-Bunni, a human rights lawyer who has represented Kurdish protesters; and leaders of Free Syria legal groups in Turkey and Jordan. By using modern legal tools for asset tracing and recovery, Syrian lawyers would have both carrots and sticks for regime change. A targeted individual could save his dignity (and perhaps some of his fortune) by breaking with Assad and obtaining partial amnesty; he could lose it by clinging to the dictator. The tribunals for judging guilt of regime loyalists would resemble traditional Syrian legal systems. As with everything affecting Syria, time is running out before the country collapses into an anarchic failed state. As rebels take control of areas, such as the northern suburbs of Aleppo, some brigade commanders are already taking the law into their own hands. What Syria needs urgently is a path to a new government based on the rule of law. The plan prepared by the Syrian Support Group is the best road map I’ve seen, and the international community should embrace it quickly. — David Ignatius is a columnist for Washington Post Writers Group.

Pick and roll KANSAS 69, TEMPLE 62

Freshman McLemore sparks rally with steal, dunk

Tom Keegan

Withey bails out Jayhawks

By Gary Bedore

Resembling a football defensive back, Ben McLemore broke on the ball at just the right time, intercepting a Temple pass and flushing it to give Kansas University’s basketball team a late onepoint lead it would not relinquish in a 69-62 victory over the Owls on Sunday afternoon in Allen Fieldhouse. “I definitely was reading it,” KU freshman sensation McLemore said of a pass from Will Cummings to high-scoring guard Khalif Wyatt near midcourt right in front of KU’s radio broadcast crew. “I knew they were trying to get him the ball,” KU’s 6-foot5 red-shirt freshman added of Wyatt, who scored a gamehigh 26 points. “I was playing high on the floor. I tried to time it, to go for the steal. It happened, and I got it.” McLemore’s breakaway dunk, which followed two Kevin Young free throws (at 4:21), helped erase a 57-54 deficit and give the Jayhawks a 58-57 advantage at 2:42. It’s a lead sixth-ranked KU (12-1) expanded upon late. McLemore’s defensive play and slam turned out to be the plays of the game as the Jayhawks defeated a Temple team (10-3) that resembled the squad that beat No. 3-ranked Syracuse on Dec. 23. “The game wasn’t over yet, but with that dunk, I think it sealed the game,” said McLemore, not about to take sole credit for the victory. “Travis’ amazing shot also gave us confidence down the stretch.” Young — he had his first double-double as a Jayhawk (16 points, 10 rebounds) — hit four straight free throws around one by Temple, and KU led, 62-58, at 1:26. Following a block by Jeff Withey (nine rejections, 11 rebounds, eight points), foul-plagued Travis Releford hit a three with :35 left to give KU a

KANSAS GUARD TRAVIS RELEFORD ROARS AFTER A THREE LATE in the game against Temple. KU pulled away Please see KANSAS, page 4B late to beat the Owls, 69-62, on Sunday at Allen Fieldhouse.

A Temple University basketball team that already had an upset victory against Syracuse to its name avoided all the common causes to visiting teams’ getting eaten alive in Allen Fieldhouse. The Owls fell behind by double digits and didn’t feed the beast with careless passes and wild shots. They turned it over just four times, 10 fewer than the home team. They didn’t let themselves get rattled, and still when all the baskets were counted up they lost, 69-62, joining the last 62 nonconference visitors. It wasn’t difficult to determine the difference in the game. Kansas had a nimble 7-footer blocking shots from start to finish, and Temple didn’t. Even when Kansas plays with a lack of wire-to-wire fire, as was the case Sunday, it doesn’t get burned with a loss because there is no answer for a great shot blocker who never gets into foul trouble and has the maturity not to let a subpar offensive day taint his overall game. On a day Withey made just three of 10 field goals and scored just eight points, he more than compensated with nine blocked shots and 11 rebounds. “What it doesn’t tell you is how many alters he had,” Temple coach Fran Dunphy said. “He changed so many of our shots because of his presence. He’s a really terrific player.” Asked about plays that had nothing to do with Withey, Dunphy always seemed to circle back to the impact the senior from San Diego had on the game. Asked about Ben McLemore’s pivotal steal late, Dunphy quickly Please see KEEGAN, page 5B

Will game live up to hype in BCS championship? MIAMI (AP) — Sometimes, the buildup to a game can overwhelm what actually happens on the field. Certainly, No. 1 Notre Dame and No. 2 Alabama would have to play nothing less than a classic to live up to all the hype for tonight’s BCS championship. Before either team stepped on the field in balmy South Florida, this was shaping up as one of the most anticipated games in years, a throwback to the era when Keith Jackson & Co. called one game a week, when it was a big deal for teams from different parts of the country to meet in a bowl game, when everyone took sides based on where they happened to live. North vs. South. Rockne vs. Bear. Rudy vs. Forrest Gump.

College football’s two most storied programs, TITLE TILT glorified in movie and Who: No. 1 song, facing Notre Dame off for the (12-0) vs. No. biggest prize. 2 Alabama “It’s defi- (12-1) nitely not any other When: 7:30 game,” said tonight A l a b a m a Where: Mil i n e b a c k e r ami C.J.

Alabama will be trying to claim its

third national championship in four years and become the first school to win backto-back BCS titles, a remarkable achievement given the ever-increasing parity of the college game and having to replace five players from last year’s title team who were picked in the first two rounds of the NFL draft. “To be honest, I think this team has kind of exceeded expectations,” coach Nick Saban said Sunday. “If you look at all the players we lost last year, the leadership that we lost ... I’m really proud of what this team was able to accomplish.” That said, it’s not a huge surprise to find Alabama playing for another title. David J.

NHL, union knock out lockout By Steve Zipay Newsday

NEW YORK â&#x20AC;&#x201D; At 6 a.m. Sunday, the glare of the lights in the Paris Room of the Sofitel Hotel in midtown Manhattan was reflected in the weary eyes of several NHL players, far more comfortable with firing pucks than debating pensions. It was hardly a post-party scene, but rather the winding down of a draining, 16-hour, overnight negotiating session that finally ended a 113-day lockout with the framework of a new, 10-year collective-bargaining agreement that will lead to an abbreviated NHL season beginning later this month. Nearby were commissioner Gary Bettman and veteran union leader Donald Fehr, who became the faces of the labor war that angered fans and sponsors and regularly sliced this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s NHL season into parts by canceling chunks of games, never to be reassembled. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hopefully, in a few days, people can start watching people who are skating and not the two of us,â&#x20AC;? Fehr said.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Absolutely,â&#x20AC;? said Bettman, who serves at the behest of owners and presided over the third lockout of his 20-year career, one in which hundreds of millions of dollars in revenue and salaries were lost. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a battle,â&#x20AC;? said Winnipeg Jets defenseman Ron Hainsey, who played a major role in the often rancorous talks, filled with distrust, that came to a conclusion only when the sides were faced with a drop-dead deadline for a deal or the loss of another entire season, like in 2004-05. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Gary said a month ago it was a tough negotiation, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what it was. Our focus now is to give the fans 48 or 50 games, whatever it is, the most exciting season we can. You want to be playing, you want to be done with this.â&#x20AC;? All that is left is for the contract language to be honed and approved, and sent to the 740 players and the leagueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 30 Board of Governors for ratification, which is expected Tuesday. New intraconference schedules will be forged, limiting travel between East and West, and training camps will open Wednesday or Thursday.

One of the unsung heroes of the talks was Scot L. Beckenbaugh, deputy director of the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service, who helped resurrect a deal when talks staggered to a crawl last week by shuttling back and forth to meet separately with each side, then kept them holed up together on an upper floor of the hotel from about 1 p.m. Saturday to seal a deal. Although the final sticking points on player contracts and pensions were smoothed out by Bettman and Fehr in the wee hours, Beckenbaugh, who spent much of his career in Iowa and brokered settlements in the cereal, meatpacking and aluminum industries, set up the deciding goal in this game. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d been told by family and friends, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Lock yourselves in a room and donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t come out,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Phoenix Coyotes captain Shane Doan said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The mediator kind of did that. He kind of kept us going, and that was huge.â&#x20AC;? Soon, the pucks can be dropped in a league that needs to rebound with some new economic parameters:

A person with knowledge of the decision confirmed Sunday night that Kelly is passing up a chance to coach in the NFL to remain with the Ducks. The person spoke to the Associated Press on condition of anonymity because Oregon and Kelly havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t formally announced the decision. The decision was first reported by ESPN. Kelly had lengthy interviews this weekend with the Cleveland Browns and Philadelphia Eagles, and also talked to the Buffalo Bills. Last year, he had talks with Tampa Bay. The 49-year-old coach earned a base salary of $2.8 million last season at Oregon and has five years left on his contract. The Ducks, known for the innovative offense that Kelly devised, beat Kansas State in the Fiesta Bowl on Thursday night to finish the season 12-1.

PGA Tour opener delayed ... again KAPALUA, HAWAII â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Another attempt to start the PGA Tour season was blown away Sunday. Just more than an hour into the opening round of the Tournament of Champions, play was suspended when more 40 mph gusts came roaring down the Plantation Course at Kapalua and left officials no choice but to wipe out yet another round. Andy Pazder, the tourâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chief of operations, said earlier Sunday that the decisions not to play â&#x20AC;&#x153;were not hardâ&#x20AC;? because the wind was severe. The winners-only tournament was supposed to begin Friday, but the round was scrapped by high wind after no one had played more than eight holes. It tried to start Sunday â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the day most golf tournaments end â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and it was clear early on there would be trouble.

McCollum was on crutches by gameâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s end, his left foot wrapped. He scored just four points, all on free throws, 21.7 below his average.

Ark. State edges Kent ————

Aplin throws for 213 yards in 17-13 victory MOBILE, ALA. (AP) — Ryan Aplin threw for 213 yards and a touchdown, J.D. McKissic caught 11 passes for 113 yards, and Arkansas State edged No. 25 Kent State, 17-13, to win the Bowl on Sunday night. Arkansas State’s usually prolific offense struggled against Kent State, but the consistent Aplin-to-McKissic connection and a stingy defense was enough to help the Red Wolves to their first bowl win since joining the Football Bowl Subdivision in 1992. Kent State was driving late in the game when quarterback Spencer Keith tried to scramble on fourth down and was stopped a few yards short of the marker with 52 seconds left. Neither team scored a touchdown in the second half. Darrell Hazell roamed the Kent State sideline one more time in the Golden Flashes’ first bowl game since 1972. He is leaving the program to take over at Purdue. Veteran defensive coordinator John Thompson coached the Red Wolves

after Gus Malzahn left to take the Auburn job last month. It was the second straight season Arkansas State had to play its bowl game without the coach that led them to a Sun Belt championship — Hugh Freeze left for Mississippi in 2011 before last year’s Bowl, which the Red Wolves lost 38-20 to Northern Illinois. Arkansas State’s offense was dominant during the last half of the regular season, averaging more than 41 points during a sevengame winning streak. But the Red Wolves had to rely on their defense in this one while the offense slowly warmed up. Kent State took a 7-0 lead on Dri Archer’s 16-yard touchdown run and the margin could have been worse, but Arkansas State linebacker Nathan Herrold picked off a tipped pass in the end zone to end a promising drive for the Golden Flashes. David Oku rushed for a tying 10-yard touchdown with 5:40 remaining in the second quarter, and then Aplin hit McKissic for a 31-yard touchdown minutes later to push the Red Wolves ahead 14-7. Kent State responded with a 42-yard field goal by Freddy Cortez just before halftime. The teams traded field goals in the third quarter, but neither team could score in the fourth.

AN ARTIST PUTS THE FINISHING TOUCHES on the BCS National Championship logo on the beach Sunday in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.


Despite their impressive legacy, the Fighting Irish (12-0) weren’t even ranked at the start of the season. But overtime wins against Stanford and Pittsburgh, combined with three other victories by a touchdown or less, gave Notre Dame a shot at its first national title since 1988. After so many lost years, the golden dome has reclaimed its luster in coach Brian Kelly’s third season. “It starts with setting a clear goal for the program,” Kelly said. “Really, what is it? Are we here to get to a bowl game, or are we here to win national championships? So the charge immediately was to play for championships and win a national championship.” Both Notre Dame and Alabama have won eight Associated Press national titles, more than any other school. They are the bluest of the blue bloods, the programs that have long set the bar for everyone else even while enduring some droughts along the way. ESPN executives were hopeful of getting the highest ratings of the BCS era. Tickets were certainly at a premium, with a seat in one of the executive suites going for a staggering $60,000 on StubHub the day before the game, and even a less-thanprime spot in the corner of the upper deck requiring a payout of more than $900. “This is, to me, the ultimate match-up in college football,” said Brent Musberger, the lead announcer for ESPN. Kelly molded Notre Dame using largely the same formula that has

worked so well for Saban in Tuscaloosa: a bruising running game and a stout defense, led by Heisman Trophy finalist Manti Te’o. “It’s a little bit old fashioned in the sense that this is about the big fellows up front,” Kelly said. “It’s not about the crazy receiving numbers or passing yards or rushing yards. This is about the big fellas, and this game will unquestionably be decided up front.” While points figure to be at a premium given the quality of both defenses, Alabama appears to have a clear edge on offense. The Tide has the nation’s highest-rated passer (AJ McCarron), two 1,000-yard rushers (Eddie Lacy and T.J. Yeldon), a dynamic freshman receiver (Amari Cooper), and three linemen who made the AP All-America team (firstteamers Barrett Jones and Chance Warmack, plus second-teamer D.J. Fluker). “That’s football at its finest,” said Te’o, who heads a defense that has given up just two rushing touchdowns. “It’s going to be a great challenge, and a challenge that we look forward to.” The Crimson Tide had gone 15 years without a national title when Saban arrived in 2007, the school’s fifth coach in less than a decade (including one, Mike Price, who didn’t even made it to his first game in Tuscaloosa). Finally, Alabama got it right. In 2008, Saban landed one of the greatest recruiting classes in school history, a group that has already produced eight NFL draft picks and likely will send at least three more players to the pros (including Jones). The following year, the coach guided Alabama to a perfect season, beating Texas in the title game at Pasadena.

Last season, the Tide fortuitously got a shot at another BCS crown despite losing to LSU during the regular season and failing to even win its division in the Southeastern Conference. In a rematch against the Tigers, Alabama romped to a 21-0 victory at the Superdome. The all-SEC matchup gave the league an unprecedented six straight national champions, hastening the end of the BCS. It will last one more season before giving way to a four-team playoff in 2014. This title game certainly has a different feel than last year’s. “That was really kind of a weird national championship because it was a team we already played,” Jones remembered. “It was kind of another SEC game. It was in the South, and it just had a very SEC feel to it obviously. This year is much more like the 2009 game (against Texas) for me. We’re playing an opponent that not only we have not played them, but no one we have played has played them. So you don’t really have an exact measuring stick.” In fact, these schools have played only six times, and not since 1987, but the first of their meetings is still remembered as one of the landmark games in college football history. Bear Bryant had one of his best teams at the 1973 Sugar Bowl, but Ara Parseghian and the Fighting Irish claimed the national title by knocking off top-ranked Alabama 24-23. If you’re a long-time Notre Dame fan, you still remember Parseghian’s gutty call to throw the ball out of the end zone for a game-clinching first down. If you were rooting for the Tide, you haven’t forgotten a missed extra point that turned out to be the losing margin.

TULSA’S PAT SWILLING JR., LEFT, SHOOTS the gamewinning three-pointer late in the second half of a 48-47 victory over SMU on Sunday in Dallas.

Tulsa upends SMU at buzzer DALLAS (AP) — Tulsa’s Danny Manning seemed to enjoy facing mentor Larry Brown of SMU in just the second sideline match-up of an NCAAwinning coach and the Final Four’s most outstanding player. The ending was even better for him. Pat Swilling Jr. hit a three-pointer with 3.8 seconds left to give the Golden Hurricane a 48-47 victory Sunday night, just three months shy of the 25th anniversary of Kansas’ 1988 championship with Brown on the bench and Manning as the star on the court. What started out as something of a Kansas reunion — and a Tulsa blowout — actually turned into a game, and Brown’s feeling of dread long before tipoff got worse when his team rallied from 34-17 down at halftime to take a 46-42 lead in the final minute, only to give it away with a missed free throw and some missed defensive assignments. “I didn’t like the idea of playing against him,” Brown said. “Once the game went on, I wasn’t thinking about Danny. I think we were thinking about our team and how we could win the game.” The coach and his former player shared a brief pregame chat, a brief hug a few minutes before the game, and another brief one after the chaotic ending — moments after Brown was waving his arms on the bench, trying to get his players to move up the floor for a final shot. He mouthed “No” as a desperation shot from half-court didn’t come close, reached his hands out as he got out of his chair and put his hands on his head. “Then you look at the way the game ended, it’s a terrible feeling,” Brown said. “I’m happy for Danny.” The former player is now 2-0 in these rare coaching match-ups, and both of them were onepoint games. In 1950, Howie Dallmar and Penn beat Everett Dean-led Stanford 59-58. That was eight years after the Cardinal won the title with Dean on the bench and Dallmar on the court. Brown and his players had something to lose, but the half-dozen or so former Jayhawks in attendance didn’t. They greeted Brown warmly outside the locker room after the game, which they watched from seats not far from the SMU bench. “It’s good to come to a game like this and be a fan of both coaches, kind of ask all the guys, ‘Who you pulling for?’” said

Milt Newton, a starter on the 1988 Kansas team and now an executive with the Washington Wizards. “I think we’re all pulling for Danny because he’s the underdog in a sense. At the end of the day, we can’t lose because if coach wins, that’s our coach, and if Danny wins, that’s our teammate.” Manning still has some of that soft-spoken superstar in him. A referee didn’t hear him as he frantically called for a timeout after a three-pointer by Scottie Haralson pulled Tulsa within 46-45 with 24 seconds left. SMU’s Nick Russell missed one of two free throws, giving Tulsa the opening for the win on the three-pointer by Swilling Jr., the son of former NFL linebacker Pat Swilling, in the Conference USA opener for both teams. Manning’s sideline demeanor didn’t change much even though he watched his team squander the 17-point halftime lead by scoring just six points in the first 15 minutes of the second half, when Tulsa (9-6) shot 23 percent. “Coach Manning, he’s his usual self — calm, cool and collected, getting fiery sometimes,” Swilling Jr. said. Newton said he expected something from different from Brown in the second half, and he was right. Brown said the Mustangs (10-6) played probably their best defense of the year in the second half. But Manning didn’t give his players any special warning at halftime. “You don’t want your team to get comfortable,” he said. “You know the coach in the other locker room, regardless of if it’s coach Brown or Tubby Smith or Bill Self, they’re all over their guys. We knew that’s what was going on. We have to do a better job of answering that call when that bell is rung.” Manning saw his former teammates at the hotel the day before the game but kept his pregame routine mostly the same. The postgame routine wasn’t going to be much different either. The Hurricane play Wednesday night at Marshall. “We got to get on the bus,” Manning said. “I’ll see those guys briefly, hug them, tell them thank you for coming, talk to you later.” As for Manning and Brown, nothing’s changed there. “We always stay in touch,” Manning said. “I wish him the best. I know he wishes me the best up until we meet again. Then we’ve got to go through all of this again.”

KANSAS GUARD BEN MCLEMORE SOARS FOR A DUNK in front of the student section late against Temple. KU beat the Owls, 69-62, on Sunday at Allen Fieldhouse.

Owls’ Wyatt stellar again During his team’s loss to then-No. 2 Duke in early December, Temple senior Khalif Wyatt was held to just six points on 3-of-15 shooting in a game he would just as soon forget. Since that disappointing outing, Wyatt has more than made up for the early-season dud with a 19-point scoring average and two of the best games of his career against two of the country’s top men’s basketball teams. The most recent such outing came Sunday at Allen Fieldhouse, where Wyatt’s hot shooting and poised play allowed Temple to take Kansas University to the wire before the Jayhawks pulled away for a 69-62 victory. Wyatt followed up his huge game in an upset victory against Syracuse on Dec. 22 — 33 points on 12of-22 shooting — with a

nearly as impressive performance against the sixthranked Jayhawks. The savvy senior from Norristown, Pa., led all scorers Sunday with 26 points on 8-of-19 shooting, knocking down all seven free-throws he attempted while playing a huge part in forcing KU senior Travis Releford to sit on the bench for most of the second half because of four fouls. “He’s a really good player,” said Temple coach Fran Dunphy, one of a small number of people in the gym Sunday not surprised by what he saw from Wyatt. “He has no fear, and he knows what he’s doing out there. He’s just a terrific player. It’s an extraordinary game that he has. There’s no speed or quickness to it, but there’s a whole lot of intelligence.” That was on full display early during the second half, when Wyatt scored in a number of different ways and refused to let

“It was huge,” Self added. “We get one steal for the game (KU last had one steal on March 15, 2005, versus Oklahoma State). Ben runs through a pass and gets a dunk, which was pretty special. Ben was never plugged in offensively the whole game, it seemed like. That wasn’t his fault. It was our fault. We did a poor job of plugging him in.” McLemore scored 13 points off 5-of-12 shooting. His one steal is the play that brought down the house, so to speak. “We were just talking about this. I couldn’t hear myself think,” McLemore said of the crowd reaction the second half. “I think Elijah was trying to talk to me. I couldn’t understand him. Good thing I know how to read lips. It was crazy. The crowd was into it. We were trying to revolve around the crowd. The crowd was with us, and we were with them.” Young’s free throws were huge on a night Self said KU “never had any rhythm offensively.” Young entered the game a 56.3 percent free-throw shooter and went 6-for-6. “He was terrific,” Self said. “We’re 16-of-18 from the line (to Owls’ 20 of 26). It was amazing. We couldn’t get to the freethrow line. I’m not saying we got a bad whistle, but it probably wasn’t a typical home whistle, so to speak.”

Seniors Young, Johnson and Releford scored 15 of KU’s final 19 points. “I don’t think about it too much, just another free throw,” Young said. “I’m just trying to focus on making it.” KU’s play down the stretch made it easier for Self to forget the Jayhawks led by as many as 12 points the first half and 11 the second. “We made a lot of plays down the stretch when we got down three late,” Self said. “I’m proud of our guys to how they reacted to not being very good today. To have a great season, you have to play games where you don’t play as well. Today was one of those games for us.” It may be remembered as the day McLemore arrived as a defensive player. He helped shut down the 6-foot-4 Wyatt late after Wyatt got Releford in foul trouble. “Playing here, it’s been great. It’s a blessing to be here and out here playing for the University of Kansas. I’m just out here having fun,” McLemore said. As far as remaining grounded ... “I think it’s my family telling me to be focused on nine in a row,” he said of KU going for its ninth straight Big 12 regular-season title.

65-58 advantage. Releford answered a Temple bucket with two free throws at :20.5, keeping the lead at seven, 67-60. McLemore dunked at 8.2 seconds again, answering two free throws by the Owls. “I’m not surprised he could pick it off,” KU senior point guard Elijah Johnson said of McLemore’s key theft, KU’s only steal on a day the Jayhawks forced just four turnovers, fewest turnovers by a KU foe since March 16, 2008, when KU forced just four against Texas. “I give him that much respect he was the only one to get a steal. He was pressuring. He wasn’t giving up. He wasn’t scared to get out and pressure the ball. I felt he deserved it,” added Johnson, who came up with a pair of driving layups to erase KU’s game-high deficit of four (54-50) with 5:31 to play. “That brought energy,” Releford said of McLemore’s steal. “The crowd got into it. That one steal is the only one we had, I guess, the whole game. “That was the key to it (victory),” added Releford, who finished with 14 points off 5-of-5 shooting in just 23 minutes.

Noted KU’s Young: “I think it took all the momentum from them and gave it to us. It got the crowd pumped up and everything and helped us a lot.” KU coach Bill Self was philosophical about the steal. “To win close games, players have to make plays, and he made a big one,” Self said.

Temple (10-3) fold. With his team trailing 41-33, the 6-foot-4 scorer took it upon himself to get the Owls back into the game by scoring 11 straight Temple points. That put the visitors ahead for the first time, and, thanks largely to Wyatt’s 17 second-half points, they stayed in front or were tied for the next 12 minutes before KU (12-1) pulled away in the final 2:45. “I think we handled the atmosphere great,” said Wyatt, whom KU coach Bill Self complimentarily said had “kind of an old man’s game.” “I was proud of all the guys. Nobody showed any fear, nobody let the stage get the best of them. A stage like this is what you play for. You get a chance to shut all those people up in the crowd, but we didn’t take advantage of it. But it was a fun atmosphere, and that’s just a great college basketball game.” Asked where KU’s

home court ranked in all of the places he has played throughout his Temple career, Wyatt did not hesitate to give Sunday’s venue the nod when it came to noise. “This was probably the loudest,” he said. “They score even a layup, and they go crazy. It doesn’t matter what they do, the crowd goes crazy.” That’s the way Dunphy remembered it from his two previous trips here. But even with that knowledge the Temple coach was blown away by Sunday’s experience. “This is my third time here (and), I don’t remember it being this loud,” Dunphy said. “The other two were deafening. This was beyond that, early in the game. But I think our kids were not troubled by that. I don’t think they were in awe as much as I would’ve been had I been a player. I’m proud of our guys, and I think we showed some toughness.”

Releford draws Self’s wrath early By Gary Bedore

Kansas University senior guard Travis Releford, who had six points, one rebound, two turnovers and an assist while committing two fouls in just 12 minutes the first half, heard from an angry coach Bill Self at intermission of Sunday’s KU-Temple men’s basketball game in Allen Fieldhouse. “He got into me. I can’t relay the message over an interview,” Releford said with a smile. “He let me know I need to change it, because I didn’t come ready to play early on.” The 6-foot-6 Kansas Citian wasn’t much of a factor as the Jayhawks took a 33-27 lead into the break. KU won the game, 69-62. “I was on Travis hard at halftime,” Self said. “I thought Travis played a bad, bad first half. He didn’t guard anybody. He wasn’t aggressive. He made a couple baskets, but they were cheap. “One thing about Travis ... gosh, was he huge

KANSAS PLAYERS — FROM LEFT, JEFF WITHEY, Elijah Johnson, Naadir Tharpe, Kevin Young (40) and Ben McLemore — come to a huddle while trailing Temple in the second half. down the stretch. I don’t know about his fifth foul. I thought that was a phantom trip (with :14.3 left), but those two threes he made were huge. We don’t win the game unless he came back (from fourth foul with 15:32 left; he returned with 6:53 left) and was aggressive.”

Releford, who finished with 14 points off 5-of-5 shooting, hit a three to give KU its biggest lead of the second half, 38-27, at 18:21. His three with :35 to play boosted a 62-58 lead to seven points. “Elijah passed it to me. I was wide-open and took the shot,” Releford said

of the late trey off a feed from Elijah Johnson. Releford said it’s great the Jayhawks were able to win despite his playing just 23 foul-plagued minutes. “They played well without me in there,” Releford said. “There will be times I have to be out or Elijah has to be out. We’ve seen it with Ben (McLemore) having to be out (with foul trouble). There will be times like that. We practice it. It’s not new to us.” Releford said Sunday’s game resembled an NCAA Tournament contest. “We won’t be at home, but that’s the type of game and momentum we’ll have to play through,” he said. KU senior Johnson said it was a positive sign KU could win without Releford for a long stretch. “That was the biggest thing for me, to not have ‘Trav’ out there. That’s my partner,” Johnson said “To have him on the bench like that can happen in March. Naadir (Tharpe, six points, 19 minutes) did some good things. Drew

(White III, no points, three minutes) came in for a few seconds. We figured it out. We know we can do it now. We’re not used to seeing Travis in foul trouble like that. Usually he’s sound. He did what he had to do. Wyatt (Khalif, 26 points, 8-of-19 shooting) kept drawing contact. We might have that problem (in tourney game), somebody aiming at one of our top players to get them out of the game. We’ve got to respond to it. I’m happy they did that to us. We know we can do it now.”

Wow: Johnson hit McLemore with a crowdpleasing alley-oop for a slam in the second half. “My only concern was, was it going to get over the defender’s fingertips, and it did. I don’t doubt Ben. He’s Superman,” Johnson said.

Self will take the victory: “I was mad the first half at our guys. I didn’t think we were ready to play. The ball stuck. We didn’t play smart,” Self

said. “That’s not who we are. We played at a fairly high level the past month, and I kind of thought we were due a game like this. To win a game against definitely an NCAA Tournament team where you have to make plays down the stretch, I think was good for all of us.”

Stats, facts: KU (121) has won 11 in a row. ... KU has won 63 straight nonconference games in Allen. The Jayhawks have won 30 consecutive games overall in Allen. ... KU is 690-107 all-time in Allen, including a 1537 mark under Bill Self. ... KU’s plus-14 margin in rebounding (46-32) was its second-best of the season. KU was plus-20 in rebounding margin against Richmond (12/18). ... KU’s 35 defensive boards matched a season high (35 vs. SE Missouri, 11/9). ... KU held the Owls to a season-low 30 percent shooting (19-for-63). ... KU had 12 blocked shots, most since it swatted 16 against San Jose State on Nov. 26.

changed the subject, saying, “Overall, we were at the rim a couple of times late, and Withey would just not let us finish.” When talking about his leading scorer, Khalif Wyatt, a senior guard who brings so much savvy to the game, Dunphy praised his passing skills as much as the impact of his 26 points. In so doing, again Dunphy couldn’t help but return to his recurring postgame theme. “He made a couple of great passes as well,” Dunphy said of Wyatt while looking at the box score. “I only see one assist for him. I don’t know how.” It didn’t take the coach long to figure out how that statistic could be accurate. “It seemed like he made opportunities for his teammates,” Dunphy said. “Maybe we didn’t finish. It looked like we were going to, and Withey said no.” Withey says no a lot, which keeps the crowd from saying, “Oh, no, not again,” when Kansas

age defense is off the charts. We may be No. 1 in the country now, I don’t know. But we make so many mistakes. It is pretty remarkable to have a guy back there making up for so many mistakes, because we’re making too many of them.” Kansas had just one steal Sunday, proof Self cited to support his argument that the mistakes defenders in front of Withey make can’t be traced to defenders em-

boldened by the knowledge Withey will prevent them from paying for gambling. “They rely too much on him,” Self said. “We had one steal. We didn’t turn Richmond over. We didn’t turn Ohio State over much. We didn’t turn American over much. So to me, if you’re making mistakes out of aggressiveness, that would translate to some screw-ups, but also some benefits. We’re not seeing

much of the benefits from a pressure standpoint at all. I think there’s a lot of soundness that needs to be corrected.” A more sound defense in front of Withey would result in an even tougher riddle for opposing coaches and players. As it was, Temple had a tough enough challenge. Withey ended the Owls’ first possession by blocking Anthony Lee’s shot. On the second time down the court, Wyatt drove into the lane and shifted to Plan B when Withey’s long reach came into view. Plan B resulted in an errant pass to the corner for a turnover. Withey finished in much the way he started. Scootie Randall tried to pad the lead, was rejected by Withey, and Kevin Young grabbed the rebound. With 1:05 left, Temple’s Rahlir Hollis-Jefferson drove to the hoop looking to cut the deficit to two points. Withey blocked his shot and grabbed the rebound. With 27 seconds left, Withey blocked Will Cummings’ shot out of bounds. No wonder Dunphy had trouble talking about anyone else. Shot-blockers have a way of staying in people’s heads like that.

Dear Annie: I have been married to “Barry” for 20 years. Even though we live several hours from his mother, she controls many of our family’s decisions. My mother-in-law is our only living parent. I often have the family over to our home and invite them to our summer cottage. I plan outings and shop for gifts. She doesn’t drive, so I take her to the grocery and wherever else she needs to go. But in her eyes, I cannot do anything right. Barry jumps when she asks him to do anything. She has always been his “boss” in terms of what he does, how he does it and when he does it. And she is his confidante when it comes to our marriage, which does not help. For the past several years, Barry has been very uninterested in me. He’s angry all the time and blames me for everything that goes wrong in his life.

Annie’s Mailbox

Marcy Sugar and Kathy Mitchell

I’ve been to counseling, but Barry (and his mother) feels this is nonsense and says there must be something wrong with me. I have been an outsider in Barry’s family for my entire marriage and see no hope of changing it. Where do I go from here? Is divorce my only answer? I truly love my husband, but I don’t like our life with his family, and he is unwilling to make changes. — Sad in the North Dear Sad: Your mother-in-law sounds difficult, but your real problem is

‘Deception’ lacks flair Like a classic mystery, the new series “Deception” (9 p.m., NBC) begins with a dead woman from a posh family with more secrets than the CIA. After troubled socialite Vivian Bowers (Bree Williamson) is found dead of an apparent overdose, FBI agent Will Moreno (Laz Alonso) begins to smell a rat. Bowers’ powerful family had a history of hushing up trouble for its bratty brood, most notably a nasty murder charge against Edward (Tate Donovan), the scary eldest son. Lucky for Moreno, his old girlfriend, detective Joanna Padget Locasto (Meagan Good), was a childhood friend of the deceased and her family. Her mother was a maid for the Bowerses, and she and Vivian were as close as sisters when they were teenagers — before Vivian appeared to go off the rails. And apparently Locasto was close to the dashing son Julian Bowers (Wes Brown) as well. Very close. Moreno convinces Locasto to attend a family memorial service, lie about her identity as a policewoman and insinuate herself into their inner circle once again. That comes easily, particularly after patriarch Robert Bowers (Victor Garber) invites her to stay at the mansion while she’s in town. Once ensconced in luxury (and wearing a wire), our detective finds family secrets scattered about the house like dust bunnies. The preposterous ease with which she uncovers a conspiracy is only one of many faults with this series. Locasto is a cipher who provides a vehicle for our discovery of the family’s many misdeeds. But that doesn’t make her interesting, or offer many motives for her curiosity, or explain why these shrewd, manipulative, untouchable and seemingly omnipotent gazillionaires fall so easily for her ruse. For all the film noir overtones, “Deception” also lacks any particular visual flair. It’s a bland combination of “Revenge” and “Nancy Drew” with a little “Dirty Sexy Money” thrown in.

Barry. If he would back you up, it would give you an opportunity to change the dynamics within the relationship. But his family doesn’t show you respect because Barry doesn’t demand it, and worse, he makes them believe they can treat you poorly. And while his family deserves his consideration, as well, it shouldn’t come at your expense. Tell Barry that your marriage is in serious trouble, not only because of the way his family treats you, but because he is angry and uninterested. If he refuses to go for counseling, go back on your own and figure out what’s best for you. Dear Annie: A year ago, I approached my aunt about something she did that hurt my family. I tried to do so with gentleness and respect. However, not only did she not apologize, but she also completely rationalized


For Monday, Jan. 7: This year you focus on your goals, as you have the potential to make them so. You also gain the support of a key person. If you are single, you might meet someone who resents your friends or isolates you in some manner. If you are attached, the two of you love to socialize and party together. 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)  If you make it your priority to get through a problem, you will succeed. A hurdle could appear in a meeting or when dealing with a friend. Tonight: Go with a friend’s logic. Taurus (April 20-May 20)  You’ll defer to a loved one who needs to be in control and does well at it. You’ll probably be in agreement. Tonight: To the wee hours. Gemini (May 21-June 20)  You have a lot to do. You might want to bypass a conversation. Tonight: Detach from a hot situation. Cancer (June 21-July 22)  How you handle someone could define a situation. You should be open to changing your responses. Tonight: Be naughty and nice. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)  Tension seems like the natural outcome of the moment, no matter which way you turn or what you do. Clearly, several friends or associates could be hot-tempered and disagreeable. Tonight: The less said the better. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)  You have the ability to

her behavior. Now she acts as if I did something wrong, and she is ignoring me. We used to be quite close and corresponded frequently. I still write to her, but get no response. She sends texts to everyone but me. She even writes my wife and kids, but it’s as if I no longer exist. How should I deal with this situation? — The Silent Treatment Dear Silent: You caught your aunt behaving poorly. Instead of being mature about it, she became defensive. Now she is punishing you as a way to avoid taking responsibility for her actions. If you are willing to forgo the apology, you can simply tell her you miss her and the closeness you once had. It’s also possible that in time she will begin including you again, as long as you don’t mention the previous unpleasantness. We hope she will grow up soon.

hear some nasty comments and not take what is being said personally. Tempers could flare, and you might wonder what exactly is happening. Tonight: Visit with a pal. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)  You might have overspent and overindulged. At this moment, any excuse could cause you to do that again. Tonight: Use all of the self-discipline you can muster up. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)  All eyes turn to you. You might have too much to handle right now. As you determine your limits, a loved one could become argumentative. Tonight: Whatever knocks your socks off. Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)  Follow your instincts, especially with finances. You know what is appropriate; don’t hesitate to follow through on that. Tonight: Get some R and R. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)  You might want to get to the bottom of a problem. How you do this could be a little difficult, as you might find yourself involved in a controversy. Tonight: Catch up on a friend’s news. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)  You suddenly see the depth of your anger. You might want to rethink a personal matter, especially if it impacts your professional image. Tonight: A force to be dealt with. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)  Suppressing your anger has more negative implications than you realize. Discuss your feelings when you feel more in control. Tonight: Follow the music. — The astrological forecast should be read for entertainment only.

Seahawks top Redskins; RG3 hurt LANDOVER, MD. (AP) — Russell Wilson raced ahead to throw the final block on Marshawn Lynch’s fourth-quarter, go-ahead touchdown run, doing just enough to get in the way of the Washington Redskins safety near the goal line. Less than a minute later, Robert Griffin III’s knee buckled as he tried to field a bad shotgun snap, the pain so bad that he didn’t even try to recover the ball. The last rookie quarterback standing in the NFL playoffs is Wilson — the third-round pick who teamed with Lynch on Sunday to lead the Seattle Seahawks to a 24-14 victory over Griffin and the Redskins. “Marshawn always tells me, ‘Russ, I got your back, no matter what,’” Wilson said. “So I just try to help him out every once in a while.” And the latest debate over the wisdom of keeping an injured franchise player on the field — when he’s obviously nowhere near his best — starts with coach Mike Shanahan, who let Griffin keep going until the QB could absolutely go no more. “I think I did put myself at more risk,” Griffin said. “But every time you get on the field, you’re putting yourself on the line.” Lynch ran for 132 yards, and Wilson completed 15 of 26 passes for 187 yards and ran eight times for 67 yards as Seahawks overcame a 14-0 first-quarter hole — their biggest deficit of the season — and will visit the top-seeded Atlanta Falcons next Sunday. Meanwhile, Griffin was headed for an MRI exam to determine the extent of the damage on his reinjured right knee. He was already playing with a big black brace, having sprained the lateral collateral ligament about a month ago against the Baltimore Ravens. He hadn’t looked his usual self in the two games he had played

WASHINGTON QUARTERBACK ROBERT GRIFFIN III TWISTS HIS KNEE as he reaches for the ball after a low snap during the second half of an NFL wild-card playoff football game against the Seahawks on Sunday in Landover, Md. The Redskins lost, 24-14. since, and he was obviously hobbled after falling awkwardly while throwing an incomplete pass in the first quarter Sunday. In the fourth quarter, Griffin labored on a nineyard run that made him look 32 years old instead of 22. “He said, ‘Hey, trust me. I want to be in there, and I deserve to be in there,’” Shanahan said. “I couldn’t disagree with him.” Shanahan said he’ll probably second-guess himself over his decision. He has the entire offseason to do so. And, whatever the injury, Griffin at least has time to recover. Wilson, on the other hand, will carry on. The day began with three rookie quarterbacks in the playoffs, but No. 1 overall pick Andrew Luck was eliminated when Indianapolis lost to Baltimore. Seattle is riding a sixgame winning streak, having left behind any doubts that the team can hold its own outside the

BALTIMORE (AP) — The Baltimore Ravens wanted one long final ride for Ray Lewis. They also wanted Denver. They got it. Having disposed of Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts, they now face a far more imposing challenge — Peyton Manning and the streaking Broncos. Anquan Boldin set a franchise record with 145 yards receiving, including the clinching touchdown in the Ravens’ 24-9 victory Sunday over the Colts in an AFC wild-card game. The win delays star linebacker Lewis’ retirement for at least another week as Baltimore (11-6) heads to top-seeded Denver (133) next Saturday. The Broncos beat the Ravens 34-17 three weeks ago. “I wanted Denver,” Boldin said, “because they beat us. “We’ll make it different.” And he wanted the Broncos because it pro-

longs the Ravens’ pursuit of their first NFL title since the 2000 season, when Lewis won the first of two Defensive Player of the Year awards. “I came to Baltimore to win a championship,” Boldin added. “We all did.” Lewis, who made 13 tackles Sunday, ended his last home game in Baltimore at fullback, of all things, for the final kneeldown. He then went into a short version of his trademark dance before being mobbed by teammates. He followed with a victory lap, his right arm, covered by a brace, held high in salute to the fans after playing for the first time since tearing his right triceps on Oct. 14 against Dallas. “My only focus was to come in and get my team a win. Nothing else was planned,” the 37-year-old Lewis said. “It’s one of those things, when you recap it all and try to say what is one of your greatest moments.

KU study shows natureâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s effect on brain


y mother loved using Bill Cosbyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s line from the record album of his routines: â&#x20AC;&#x153;GO OUT AND PLAY.â&#x20AC;? She often used it on me and my best friend Susan Sapper, even on the hottest and coldest of days. So off we would go to the â&#x20AC;&#x153;creek,â&#x20AC;? our local storm sewer that drained into the Little Blue River, to muddy our clothes and shoes. Though I doubt she sent me outside to make me smarter â&#x20AC;&#x201D; she just wanted to talk on the telephone in peace â&#x20AC;&#x201D; new research reveals that was just what she was achieving. In collaboration with researchers from the University of Utah, Kansas Universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ruth Ann Atchley is the lead author of a study revealing that being in the natural world can increase a personâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cognitive and creative ability by a staggering 50 percent. The study built on the brainchild of some New York Times journalists and a few big name cognitive scientists, such as the University of Utahâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Dave Strayer, who rafted the Colorado River together and collectively wondered what effect the trip had on cognition, in particular creativity. Strayer, Atchley, her husband, and a reporter from Backpacker magazine conducted a small pilot study to see if people who spent multiple days in nature away from all forms of technology improved their scores on cognitive tests. It produced astounding results. To solidify these results, Atchley and her collaborators organized a larger study with the cooperation of Outward Bound, an organization that helps urban youths and adults connect to nature. They measured the cre-

ative ability of 60 adults who had already been backpacking for three days in wilderness areas in Alaska, Maine and Colorado. Because the experiment excluded electronics, the researchers used a well-established measure of creativity used since the 1960s called RAT, or the Remote Associates Test. RAT involves word puzzles. For example, it might ask people to find the commonality between the words widow, bite and monkey. The answer is spider. In a normal, high-tech environment, the average person correctly solves only four out of 10 puzzles. After three days in the woods, the folks in the Outward Bound experiment averaged closer to six and a half out of 10. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Normally, if researchers see a 5 or 10

percent increase, we get excited, but with this really simple test, we literally saw an increase of over 50 percent in creative output â&#x20AC;&#x201D; an amazing change,â&#x20AC;? Atchley said. Not surprisingly, when subjects returned to their ordinary environment, they returned to the lower success rate. In future research, Atchley and her team plan to examine the actual â&#x20AC;&#x153;dosageâ&#x20AC;? of nature required for the effect on creativity. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We know the truth of this research anecdotally,â&#x20AC;? Atchley said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve all known that Thoreau was right about the effects of nature, but could we find data to support the idea? The answer is yes, we can. Now we have to go after why. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In the next year or two, my team will be measuring the actual neurological effects of time in nature, such as brain wave activity, heart and breathing rate, and levels of proteins in the blood that reflect stress. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heavy exposure to technology literally fatigues the brain. My team and I have come up with a term I like a lot: nature has a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;soft fascination.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; With all the rings, bleeps and bloops that surround us constantly, simulating threat, our adrenal glands are overwhelmed. Nature, on the other hand, fascinates and engages us without asking anything from us, without demanding our attention.â&#x20AC;? In addition to study groups out of state, Atchley plans to collaborate with Outside for a Better Inside, a Lawrence group founded with the goal of helping children unplug from technology and reconnect with nature. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Kelly Barth can be reached at

Painting interior doors adds ‘wow’ to rooms BY AMY LORENTZEN, ASSOCIATED PRESS


f you’ve got your decor looking just about right but want that extra “wow” factor, consider painting interior doors. “Address other main features in the room first, and then if something is still missing, painting the door provides that ‘Aha’ moment,” says Natalie Myers, principal designer with Veneer Designs in Los Angeles. “It changes everything.” Painting a doorway is easy and inexpensive, depending on your preferred paint and supplies. It’s a low-commitment project, since you can simply repaint if you don’t like the outcome. And you can customize the color and design to any decor. “The true trend is that homeowners are becoming much more confident in using color,” says Colleen Maiura with Lowe’s Home Improvement stores. “When combined with the desire to personalize — Colleen Maiura, the space, homeowners Lowe’s Home are experimenting with whatever color makes Improvement stores them happy.” What are designers seeing most on interior doors? Interesting colors, especially teal blues and nature-inspired greens, with yellows and pastels for a more playful look in warmer climes and vacation homes. For the less adventurous who still want a bold statement, it’s classic colors such as black, charcoal, chocolate and navy. Before you coat your entire door, test a small spot to make sure you like the color. Many interior designers will do a color consultation for a small fee. Or if that’s not in your budget, Myers suggests searching for inspiration at sites such as and, where designers feature their projects, or at, where do-it-yourselfers post their own interior door transformations. You can also find inspiration at ApartmentTherapy. com, where founder Maxwell Gillingham-Ryan and his team offer design tips. Gillingham-Ryan recommends choosing a gloss finish, not matte, of whatever hue you choose for your interior door. “Think classic, European, oil-based paints,” he says, and urges investing in a quality paint. “Higher amounts of pigments and more body make fewer coats needed and a smoother finish. Since you don’t need a large amount, the investment in quality paint is worthwhile and a reasonable splurge.” Transforming your door can increase the impact of any architectural details in the room. It “helps to define the space visually while adding personality, color and, in the case of (a glassy) finish, texture

“The true trend is that homeowners are becoming much more confident in using color.”

A DOOR AND TRIM IS PAINTED with Valspar Signature’s Celestial Blue, available at Lowe’s, to create contrast while adding drama and architectural detail to further personalize the space in this undated publicity photo provided by The Valspar Corp. and light reflection,” Gillingham-Ryan says. If you want the door to blend into the look of the room, choose colors that complement your wall shades, experts say. Pick an accent color or something bold if you want the door to pop out as its own statement. Painting the trim the same color as the door or walls, or an entirely different color, can also add dimension. “I have seen people follow the geometric trend right now and paint two shades of the same color on the diagonal on one door face. That’s pretty adventurous,” Myers says. “Otherwise, it’s safe yet just as dramatic to paint a solid color on the door and contrasting color on the trim.” Once you’ve decided on your color palette and finish, it’s time to get down to painting. Experts suggest setting aside at least a couple of hours; plan to apply at least two coats for rich, full coverage. It’s usually best to take the door off and remove the hinges and other hardware before painting. However, if

you’ve got a steady hand, you can use brushes and small rollers to carefully apply paint to a hanging door. At, experts recommend starting with the edges. Then, for flat doors, start by rolling paint on the top half of the door and work your way down. Use light pressure strokes with the roller to smooth out the paint. Let the first application dry, then follow the same process with the second coat of color. For paneled doors, start from the top applying paint to the panels first, then to other areas of the door. Foam brushes and small rollers can be helpful in smoothing paint in tight spots and deep panels. In just part of an afternoon, you can change the feel of your interior space. “I always say painting your walls is the cheapest and lowest-commitment way to transform the room,” Myers says. “The door is an even quicker way to achieve a big change with color.”




Tim Gunn expands mentoring â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Baileywickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; to series BY SAMANTHA CRITCHELL, AP FASHION WRITER


YORK â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Tim Gunn has advised divas for years on â&#x20AC;&#x153;Project Runway,â&#x20AC;? so working with a princess is no big deal. In the new Disney Junior animated series â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sofia the First,â&#x20AC;? Gunnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s royal steward character, Baileywick, helps the young Sofia adapt to royal life after her mother marries a king. Baileywick not only helps Sofia (voiced by Ariel Winters) dress like a royal, but he also guides her on developing manners, grace and an independent spirit. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I feel very comfortable in this role,â&#x20AC;? he says. Certainly, 2- to 7-year-old children are a new audience, Gunn says, but being a teacher who knows when to give congratulations and critiques â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and how to look after his charge â&#x20AC;&#x201D; are skills heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s honed for most of his professional life. Before Heidi Klum came calling for him to work on TV with aspiring designers, Gunn was chairman of Parsons The New School for Design fashion department. Gunn, 59, says he enjoys sometimes veering from the expected career path. A few years ago, Marvel Comics turned him into a superhero to save a fashion exhibit. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When Marvel asked if I would do it, they asked with trepidation. They were nervous that I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t, but who doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to be their own comic book superhero?â&#x20AC;? Gunn says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I said Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d do it in a heartbeat, and it was the same way with Disney.â&#x20AC;? Disney launched the characters in a TV movie just before Thanksgiving. It attracted an audience of 5.2 million viewers. The EW

The message of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sofia the Firstâ&#x20AC;? is a good one, Gunn says: Looking the part only gets you halfway there and then you have to act like a leader and be nice to people at the same time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If I had a child, I would want my child watching this for the lesson in moral character.â&#x20AC;? It might be harder for kids â&#x20AC;&#x201D; or the parents watching with them â&#x20AC;&#x201D; to glean any real-life style tips. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m dealing with royalty here,â&#x20AC;? says Gunn. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They can make their own fashion rules.â&#x20AC;?

How much to work depends on teen Dear Dr. Wes and Katie: I’ve always heard students benefit by working up to 20 hours per week. Is that still true? Dr. Wes: This question comes from our Twitter feed for parents, @wescrenshawphd. We also have one for teens, @DrWes4Teens. You can follow our advice and submit questions on either one. There are two schools of thought on this. Katie makes an excellent case favoring school over work. However, a great deal of teen free time is not spent in the pursuit of greater learning. There’s nothing wrong with free time, but most teens have a significant amount of it, some of which might be better spent by joining the economy. That ancient adage about idle hands and the devil is never truer than in 10- to 20-year-olds. Moreover, a great portion of today’s high school students will never complete a traditional four-year degree for which much of the advanced high school curriculum is designed. They’ll go to trade school or learn a career on the job. For those teens, high school employment is crucial because it establishes a work history that forms a basis for future career, just as advanced placement classes create a platform for the college-bound. While a job is no substitute for a high school curriculum (read: stay in school!), it’s an important adjunct that should be encouraged. As with all things in life, balance is everything, and for teens, striking a reasonable one is an emerging developmental task. Parents can help kids think long-term about how work, high school, college, social life and career combine to bring about an effective young adult. Sometimes that’s a conversation and other times a demand, particularly if one area of life is suffering because of another. Throw in some financial wisdom while

Double TAKE DR. WES CRENSHAW AND KATIE GUYOT you’re at it. Teens with earned disposable income often struggle as young adults when called upon to spend their hardearned cash on necessities. So in the end, 20 hours a week is not a magic number. For some kids, that’s a bit high. Others can probably handle it, if it’s coming out of their free time and not their study time, and if it doesn’t interfere with sleep. Katie: I would estimate that the majority of teenagers work for at least a few hours every week, whether they’re delivering pizza or ordering it for the kids they baby-sit. I’m in the minority as a nonworker, but I can certainly appreciate the two big boons teenagers get out of employment: money and responsibility. But as profitable as those multifaceted earnings can be for teenagers and their parents, it’s important to remember that being a student is already a full-time job. The average teenager is in school seven hours a day, five days a week. After the bell rings at 3 p.m., students are encouraged to participate in extracurricular clubs

and sports. When they get home, it’s time to knock out some assignments and study for upcoming tests. It’s usually suggested that high school seniors spend about two hours studying every night. (That number rises with advanced and AP classes.) So school commitments can eat up about 10 hours out of a teen’s day, starting at 8 a.m. and ending at around 6 p.m. Trying to fit a 20-hour workweek into that agenda would require long weekend hours and late nights — and that’s without some much-needed down time. When planning for a job, teenagers and their families should consider their priorities, keeping in mind that the more teens work, the less time they’ll have for sleeping, studying and relaxing. Parents may have to ease up on their academic expectations if their kids are working several hours after school. That said, the best way to learn the true value of money is by earning it, and that’s what I regret most about not having a job myself. The purpose of adolescence is to evolve from child to adult — in other words, from play to work. Holding a job for a few hours a week is a good way to initiate that process, but there’s a fine line between working and being overworked. Teens aren’t adults just yet. We still need some time to be kids. — Wes Crenshaw, Ph.D., ABPP, is author of “Dear Dr. Wes: Real Life Advice for Teens” and “Real Life Advice for Parents of Teens.” Learn about his new practice Family Psychological Services at dr-wes. com.

ith a gaping hole, a fancy cashmere sweater becomes considerably less, well, fancy. But that’s only if your imagination is limited to thinking of it as the article of clothing it was originally designed to be. Put the same castoff sweater through Jerry Dowdle’s sewing machine, and someone can soon be enjoying its whisper-soft luxurious wool in a new wrap, an embellished head-warmer or maybe even a pair of fingerless gloves. It’s called upcycling, and not only is it all over websites such as Etsy and Pinterest, it’s an increasingly popular trend in Lawrence. Between downtown shops and individual artisans, creative types are breathing new life into old objects and finding success selling them online and in stores. “At the most basic level, it’s taking something that’s not being used and that no one wants, and turning it into something useful and desirable,” said Dowdle, who calls her business TerranJerran: Taming the Tattered. “I like to add beauty to it — I like to think that’s what I do.” Dowdle sells her items in-person at arts and crafts fairs and online through her Etsy shop, One Lawrence retail store that specializes in upcycled items is U.R.U. Decor, which opened this summer at 1113 Massachusetts St. Owner Sharmain Saldana sees upcycling as not just a trend but a mindset that can help combat the “throwaway way of life.” It embraces the quality and beauty of items that may no longer be fit for their original use but still have value as something new. “We definitely, definitely believe in preserving as much as we can,” she said. Saldana’s sidewalk sandwich board was made from the decorative part of an old wooden baby crib, and she used wire springs from the same crib to create a lightweight pot-rack style hanging shelf. Among items she sold recently was an antique steamer trunk she made into a coffee table by adding legs.

U.R.U. Decor also sells upcycled items created by other area residents. Wine-barrel slats turned into candle holders, dazzling pieces of costume jewelry turned into refrigerator magnets and a small antique pan turned into a clock are only a few. One of Saldana’s sons makes lightweight bowls out of vinyl records, which are also for sale at the shop. U.R.U. Decor also stocks items other upcyclers might be in the market for, such as vintage suitcases — which Saldana has seen transformed into shelves or small dog beds — and lots of old books, which make whimsical purses or treasure boxes.

A wholesome salad to start the new year BY SARAH HENNING


t’s a brand new year, peeps! If you’re eyeing this column because you’ve decided you’d eat more whole, fresh foods in the new year, you’ve come to the right place. Well, at least I think so. I really do try to keep this blog as healthy as possible. To me, “healthy” means a few things: 1. Whole ingredients — I like to use foods in their natural state, as unprocessed as possible. This isn’t always the case, or sometimes I use something out of convenience (case in point: the can of beans below, rather than beans from scratch). But most of the time, my meals feature whole fruits and vegetables supported by a few condiments. 2. Good fats — I prefer to focus on fats that are good for the body: seeds and nuts with essential fatty acids, monounsaturated fatty acids (like the kind in avocados) and medium chain fatty acids (like the kind in virgin coconut oil).

Extra virgin olive and grapeseed oils are great, too, but don’t provide as many antiinflammatory benefits as the other fats I’ve mentioned. 3. No refined sugar — I like to use alternatives to white or brown sugar when possible. Most of the time, I’ll tend to use dates, maple syrup and honey. The salad I’m featuring today is a great example of a healthy dinner that meets all of my guidelines. It contains good fats, plenty of whole foods, unrefined sugar and isn’t difficult to prepare.

Portobello Salad with Spicy Mustard Dressing DRESSING 1/4 cup prepared spicy, smooth mustard 3 tablespoons grapeseed oil 1/4 cup red wine vinegar 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup

SALAD 8 cups mixed greens 1 avocado, peeled, halved, pitted and sliced thin 1 small red onion, sliced into very thin half-moons 1 (15-ounce) can chickpeas, drained and rinsed 1 recipe roasted portobellos (below) Dressing: Whisk all ingredients together in a small bowl. Done. Salad: Throw together all the ingredients except the portobellos in a large mixing bowl. Pour on the dressing and use tongs to toss. When ready to serve, place the dressed greens on plate and add the sliced, warm portobellos. Serves 4. ROASTED PORTOBELLOS 1/2 cup cooking wine 1 tablespoon olive oil

2 tablespoons soy sauce 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar 2 cloves garlic, minced 2 large portobello caps Combine all ingredients for the marinade in a glass pie plate or small casserole. Place the mushrooms upside down in the marinade into each cap to form a small pool. Preheat the oven to 400 F, and marinate for about 20 minutes. Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 30 minutes. Remove the foil, use tongs to flip the caps over, and cook, uncovered, for another 10 minutes. Let it cool a bit and then slice the mushrooms very thinly on the diagonal to make nice, meaty slices.

he winter months mark the end of the outdoor training season for many active people, and the colder, shorter days can make it challenging to stay motivated and active. In fact, Gallup surveys find that exercise levels and healthy eating habits among Americans significantly decline during fall and winter months. “When the temperatures drop and the sun sets earlier, many people struggle to find the time, energy or motivation to stay focused on their fitness goals,” said USA Cycling and Triathlon coach Gale Bernhardt. “The best way to stay on top of your personal health and maximize cold weather workouts is to create an offseason game plan.” These easy-to-follow tips will help you run your day, your way and stay active this offseason, no matter how cold it is outside.

Some is better than none: If you don’t have time to go to the gym or fit an hour

workout into your busy day, still try to fit in what you can. Try a steady walk for 20 to 30 minutes, climb a flight of stairs a couple of times, or simply walk around the block.

Embrace the cold: Don’t let the chilly temperatures scare you. Use the cold as an opportunity to find unique ways to get in some good cardio or strength work by raking leaves, shoveling the driveway, building a snowman or going on a winter weather hike.

Break from the gym: Winter workouts don’t need to be relegated to the gym. Find an at-home fitness DVD (Pilates, yoga, cardio, etc.) or an on-demand television workout, and do your own in-house boot camp once a week to mix things up.

Mix up your fitness: Use the winter season to learn a new skill. Try something new like indoor rock climbing, a dance class, fitness boxing, or cross-country skiing. Check out your local fitness center for ideas.

Stay fueled in the cold: If you find yourself in need of an energy boost before your endurance workout, you can grab a conve-

nient fuel source such as a Marathon Bar.

Winter workout buddy: For added motivation, invite friends to work out with you. Buddies give you incentive, provide mutual commitment and ultimately help keep workouts fun.

Join a team: Winter is a great time for team sports like volleyball or basketball. Recreation leagues like these can provide a great aerobic workout and speed skills, too.

Don’t let the colder winter months slow you down. Whether the goal is to maintain endurance in between race seasons, effectively provide rest and recovery to a fatigued body, or simply to stay healthy and active during the long winter months, try the tips above to help develop simple strategies for training and nutrition that works best for you to stay fit and active during the offseason.


The importance of reflection “O Mind

nly when the clamor of the outside world is silenced will you be able to hear the deeper vibration. Listen carefully.” — Sarah Ban Breathnach

As we passed through the holidays, we frequently heard someone suggest the season was a good time for reflection. It is not unusual for many of us to increase our time of reflection as the New Year arrives. However, it may be even more helpful to make reflection a daily priority in your life rather than a focused, annual event. In our culture, it takes great awareness and deliberateness to take time for reflection. Because of our conditioning, being in continuous task mode seems normal. We are always checking our lists, whether written on a note pad or swirling in our head. Frequently, when occupied by tasks, we become unconscious. While unconscious we are unable to stay on top of our experience. Our actions become robotic, frequently meaningless and often unhealthy. Reflection may aid us in three key ways. First, honest reflection acts like the spell checker in word processing software, helping us identify potential errors in previous thoughts and actions, giving us the opportunity to self-correct before an unhealthy pattern develops. Secondly, by taking time to consider the day ahead, we are able to connect intention to future action. Thirdly, reflection provides the opportunity to get out of doing mode and into being mode. Taking time to just be enables us to reinvigorate our spirit. In spite

Our clients report that when they take time to reflect at bedtime, upon rising and at other times during the day, their capacity to influence their moment-to-moment experience improves.

Reflection can be done in a few minutes; it may involve journaling or can be part of a short or lengthy meditation. Your reflection time can be organized or free-flowing. You may set different intentions for different reflection times. Uncomfortable feelings like those that are underpinnings to depression or anxiety may create in us a sense of urgency to rid ourselves of the discomfort. However, the ability to view uncomfortable feelings as essential learning opportunities can turn discomfort into experiences of growth. Uncomfortable feelings are signs of imbalances in our lives that may exist in emotional, physical, relational and/or spiritual dimensions. Reflection is a way of observing uncomfortable feelings and thoughts with an approach that blends curiosity with a nonjudgmental stance that can move you from a stuck place to a creative place. We recommend using reflection whenever you feel uncomfortable as a way to observe and gain insight into your discomfort. It is useful to reflect on the four aspects of your humanity: the emotional, the physical, the relational and the spiritual. Typically you will find imbalances in one or more areas that are leading to your discomfort, and you can gain awareness of a potential problem, such as recognizing that you have not paid attention lately to your relational or spiritual needs. Practicing reflection daily enables you to pull weeds from your emotional garden when they are still small. — Jena and Ed Bloch can be reached at



Safe driving at night Driving at night makes some people nervous — and with good reason. There are far fewer drivers on the road at night than during the day, but about half of traffic fatalities happen after dark, according to the U.S. Federal Highway Administration. There are things you can do to make night driving safer:

Make sure your windows,

headlights, tail lights and signal lights are clean so they are easier for other drivers to see.

Flipping the small lever at the

bottom of your mirror changes the angle of its reflective surface. You’ll still see the lights from the cars behind you, but they will be less bright in your eyes.

Check your headlights at least

once a year. Park on a level surface facing five feet from a building wall or your garage door, then turn on your headlights. If the circles of light are bright and white, they are in good working condition. If they are yellow and dim, the bulbs should be replaced.

If light from oncoming vehicles

shines directly into your eyes, look down and to the right. Look toward the white line on the side of the road — this lets you see cars around you with your peripheral vision but cuts down on the glare. — Family Features

Bitter-cold weather shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t defeat your fashion sense â&#x20AC;&#x201D; if you choose your classic pieces wisely, they should maintain their usefulness through the chilliest of days.


A THICK WOOL COAT, rubber-soled dress shoes and long underwear can keep a man warm while still looking stylish this winter.



espite the Mayan Apocalypse, the â&#x20AC;&#x153;fiscal cliffâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Gangnam Style,â&#x20AC;? 2013 is in fact upon us. The world continues to chug along, and the first month of the New Year is going to bring some bone-chilling weather. I find that January is often a time when many men abandon fashion for function. But bitter-cold weather shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t defeat your fashion sense â&#x20AC;&#x201D; if you choose your classic pieces wisely, they should maintain their usefulness through the chilliest of days. COATS Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s begin with coats. A big issue with many menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wool-blend coats today is the quality of fabric. Take a moment to look at the tag along the inside seam at the bottom of your coat. Here you will find the composition of the fabric used to make your coat. You want at least 80 percent wool. This will guarantee not only a longer life for your coat, but also more warmth. The acrylic fabric provides added strength to the wool (in addition to cutting some cost for the manufacturer). Too many clothing manufacturers have fallen back on selling cheap, thin coats composed of maybe 40 percent wool as a â&#x20AC;&#x153;classicâ&#x20AC;? wool coat.

Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let them fool you â&#x20AC;&#x201D; always check the tag and make sure youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re investing in a timeless, quality piece that will work hard for you for years to come. SHOES You can also continue to wear dress shoes during the winter without sacrificing style. Shoemakers now offer many of their classic dress shoes with rubber-lugged soles. Anyone who has ever tried to walk on ice in a leather-soled shoe will appreciate this addition. I would also recommend regularly treating the leather upper of your shoes with oils, waxes or silicone to keep them waterproof and supple. If you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to abandon your beloved leathersoled shoes, companies like Tingley offer rubber overshoes that easily slide over your lace-ups. Also known as galoshes, overshoes will protect your lace-ups all the way to the office in addition to giving you grip on the icy streets and sidewalks. And donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t forget, snatch some quality socks to wear under your shoes. I recommend merino wool â&#x20AC;&#x201D; with their backpacking origins, nothing keeps your feet warm and dry like these.

BASE LAYERS What about your legs? Well, if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a guy who wears a suit every day, invest in a few good pairs of long underwear. Men have been sporting them for hundreds of years under their pants to fend off the cold, and you should, too. Sportswear companies like Nike and Under Armour offer a wide range of tights that also provide good base warmth, but I just donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think you can beat long underwear for its combination of affordability and warmth. For dressing down, L.L. Bean and J. Crew offer another option â&#x20AC;&#x201D; flannel-lined jeans. Not only will these keep your legs toasty with minimal bulk, but you can also add a stylish flair to your outfit by cuffing your jeans just enough to reveal the plaid lining. I guarantee youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll get some compliments. As this column has touched on, inclement weather can provide you new opportunities not only to more fully realize the quality and usefulness of your pieces but also to find new ways to express yourself. In the end, quality will always win out, and fashion can â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and should â&#x20AC;&#x201D; follow function. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Vaughn Scribner can be reached at

Florida celebrates Spanish heritage BY SUZETTE LABOY, THE ASSOCIATED PRESS


— When Juan Ponce de Leon searched for riches in Florida, he unknowingly helped turn the Sunshine State into the first travel destination in the United States. In April 1513, the Spanish monarchy contracted the explorer to find another island off of Cuba that was rumored to have great riches. Instead he landed in Florida and named it “La Florida,” after the “feast of the flowers” during Spain’s Easter celebrations. Five centuries later, the state is celebrating its Spanish heritage with a series of events throughout 2013. “It was always seen as an exotic place,” historian Dr. J Michael Francis said of Florida. “That’s something that Florida tourism continues to market on some level.” Although Florida’s history dates back more than 12,000 years with Native Americans, the statewide campaign “Viva Florida 500” will highlight the start of a new era with de Leon’s adventurous voyage to the New World. “He was the first visitor to the United States,” said Will Seccombe, president and CEO of Visit Florida, the state’s official tourism marketing corporation. “That’s 500 years of explorers and they kept coming back.” Tourism is Florida’s No. 1 industry, responsible for welcoming 87.3 million visitors in 2011, according to state official estimates. Many visitors may know Florida mostly for its 825 miles (about 1,330 kilometers) of beaches or as the theme park capital of the world, but the “Viva Florida” campaign is designed to broaden their outlook, Seccombe said. The state will host 150 celebrations that “highlight cultural diversity and the art culture history that makes up the fabric of our communities.” After de Leon’s visit, European settlers colonized in present-day St. Augustine, the nation’s oldest city. Visitors to the city can find many references to the Spanish colonial era, from the massive Castillo de San Marcos fort that protected the city from attack, to the colorful Spanish architecture and narrow streets. (Full-scale replicas of Ponce de Leon’s flagship will visit the city in April). De Leon probably wasn’t the first EuIAMI

The nation’s oldest fort was built by Spanish settlers between 1672 and 1695 and used to fight off pirates, hostile natives, French, British and South Carolinian forces. This year Florida is marking the 500th anniversary since the explorer Ponce de Leon landed in Florida in April 1513, with a series of events related to the state’s Spanish heritage and other aspects of its history. AT RIGHT, A STATUE OF SPANISH EXPLORER PONCE DE LEON located at the foot of the Bridge of Lions in St. Augustine’s Plaza de La Constitucion is shown.

ropean to set foot in Florida, and there is even debate on where he landed exactly: Melbourne Beach, St. Augustine or South Ponte Vedra Beach. But all of these suggested spots are based on fairly tenuous documentation. “It’s unlikely we will ever know the precise landing spot,” said Francis, Hough Family Chair of Florida Studies at the University of South Florida in St. Petersburg, Fla. “There is no archaeological footprint. No logbook. And even if found, there’s no guarantee we would even know from that.”

The commemoration, he said, is not about pinpointing the Spanish legacy but about rediscovering “and maybe even discover for the first time Florida’s colonial history.” Francis also wants to set the record straight about the search for eternal youth: There is no mention of the Fountain of Youth in de Leon’s contracts with Spanish crowns or in his own writings, Francis said. “Over time that story became more embellished,” Francis said. “What started as a myth ended up in the writings of later historians and chroniclers as history.”

But the legend lives on in Florida’s 700 natural springs and with spas, health resorts and yoga retreats. Throughout the year, 150 events across the state will mark the anniversary: Drive the Spanish Heritage Trail. Dive on historic shipwrecks. Tour a Spanish basilica and mission village. Visit orange groves and cattle ranches. Taste the flavors of Florida. Other events will include plenty of festivals with re-enactments and other things to do in addition to visiting the beaches and theme parks the state is famous for.

f you have an electric hot water heater, chances are you will need to replace the heating element at some point. If the tank is producing a small amount of hot water, the bottom element probably needs to be replaced. If the tank is producing no hot water, the top element is the likely culprit. Replacing either element is a relatively simple project. Step 1: Shut off the power supply to the water heater using the circuit breaker or fuse panel. Step 2: Turn off the water supply to the heater and open the hot water side of the nearest faucet. Step 3: Attach a garden hose to the drain valve located near the bottom of the tank and allow the water to drain out completely. Step 4: Unscrew the access panel near the top or bottom of the heater, depending on which element needs to be replaced. Pull back the insulation to expose the back end of the heating element. Step 5: Use a voltage sensor to confirm that the power to the water heater is off. Step 6: Use a Phillips-head screwdriver to detach the wires from the back of the heating element. If the wires are deteriorated, cut off the ends of the wires and strip the wire to expose a fresh bare inch of copper on each wire. Step 7: Unscrew the old element from the tank and take it to the local hardware store or plumbing supply shop. Purchase an identical replacement element with the same voltage and wattage ratings. Step 8: Clean the element opening on the tank to ensure a good seal. Step 9: Install the new element and re-

Step 10: Close the drain valve, remove the garden hose and turn on the water supply to the tank. Step 11: As the tank fills, water should begin flowing from the previously opened faucet. Allow the water to flow freely from the faucet for about three minutes before turning off the faucet. Step 12: Fill the tank completely and check for leaks around the new element. Step 13: Replace the insulation and reattach the access panel. Step 14: Turn the power back on using the circuit breaker or fuse panel. If all goes well, you should have a full tank of hot water in an hour or so. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Linda Cottin can be reached at

Far from cute, mice pose serious health and property dangers BY NEWSUSA STAFF

t’s the season when welcome mats will be rolled out in homes across America to greet houseguests arriving for shared meals and warmth. While friends and family are welcomed visitors, there are other, less welcome guests who don’t need an invitation to enjoy the treats and trimmings the winter offers — rodents. These party-crashers generally skip the welcome mat in favor of random cracks and crevices that provide just the inside access they need. Rodent infestations are more than just an annoyance; they can contaminate food sources with feces and urine, spreading Salmonella and Hantavirus. Mice also bring in other pests, such as fleas, mites, ticks and lice, which can quickly spread throughout homes. Mice are also able to cause significant structural damage to homes. “Mice can bite through walls, wood and even electrical wires,” said Missy Henriksen, vice president of public affairs for the National Pest Management Association (NPMA). “The

damage to wiring within walls can cause house fires.” As one in four homeowners reports a problem with rodents in the winter months, the NPMA offers the following steps to keep mice from becoming unwanted guests this season:

Seal cracks and holes, including areas where utilities and pipes enter the home. Fill openings with a material that is inedible for mice, such as steel wool.

Install gutters or diverts to channel water away from your home.

Store food in thick metal or plastic containers with tight lids.

Clean up spilled food right away, and wash dishes and cooking utensils soon after use.

Keep outside cooking areas and grills clean.

Do not leave pet food or water bowls out overnight.

Keep bird feeders away from the house, and use squirrel guards to limit access to the feeder by squirrels and other rodents.

Use a thick plastic or metal garbage can with a tight lid, and keep sealed at all times. If you find rodent feces, hear sounds of scurrying in the walls or observe other signs of an infestation, contact a licensed pest professional to inspect and treat the pest problem.
