Energy smart: The Journal-World makes the most of renewable resources.

Lawrence’s public schools aren’t the only ones bracing for major changes this year. Private schools also are making plans to add more grades, enroll more students or accommodate new programs for 2011-12, when the Lawrence public school district will be turning its junior highs into middle schools. “Parents have always encouraged us to have more grades,” said Pat Newton, principal at St. John Catholic School, 1208 Ky. “It never was feasible, with the current configuration of the public schools. Now that the public schools are changing, it makes it easier for us.” One major change at the public level — middle schools welcoming students in grades six through eight, therefore limiting elementary schools to kindergarten through fifth — is spurring the most adjustments among private schools in Lawrence: more classes, more subjects, more teachers. and more renovations, additions and other expansions to fit in. Administrators with the Lawrence school district prefer not to address the potential for losing enrollment to private schools. Instead, they note the additional opportunities that will be available for publicschool students from sixth grade and beyond. “We are focused on creating a positive, dynamic middle school program,” said Rick Doll, district superintendent. “That’s what we’re focused on. Parents certainly have the right to choose.” Leaders from the community’s Catholic schools

ANDREW BERRYMAN, FRONT, AND RYAN LIEBOLD are sixth-graders at Corpus Christi Catholic School, 6001 Bob Billings Parkway. They can continue their studies at Corpus Christi next year as the school adds a seventh-grade class. TO ACCOMMODATE SEVENTHGRADERS next year, Corpus Christi Catholic School has added a new classroom. Counters and sinks, along with lockers and hookups for computers, have been installed.

The National Weather Service switched a winter storm watch to a winter weather advisory Sunday afternoon in preparation for snowfall that could bring up to 8 inches by this evening. The advisory will remain in effect for Douglas and surrounding counties until 6 a.m. Tuesday. The snow was expected to accumulate Sunday evening and into today, tapering off by Tuesday. City crews worked through the night Saturday clearing about an inch of snow, then began round-the-clock treating and clearing of streets at 6 p.m. Sunday, city communications manager Megan Gilliland said. Lawrence residents are also reminded of the snow and ice removal ordinance. To make p u b l i c s i d ewa l k s sa fe fo r p e d e s t r i a n s , t h e ow n e r o r occupant of property immediately adjacent to a public sidewalk is responsible for the removal of any snow or ice that accumulates on the sidewalk. Removal must be done within 48 hours after the ice forms or the snowfall ends. The city of Lawrence has more information about snowstormrelated issues, including a map of snow-removal priority streets, at works/snow_ice. The National Weather Service warned of low visibility and dangerous traveling conditions during the advisory. The snow will not melt anytime soon. Temperatures are expected to dip down to the low 20s today and fall into the teens by Tuesday. For the week’s forecast, see page 10A.

Task force lends credibility to school district cuts By Mark Fagan

Members of the Lawrence school board anticipate being forced to make additional budget cuts for the coming school year, likely in the range of $1.5 million to $5 million, and they’ll be getting some potential political cover from folks who nor-

mally would be expected to make the most noise in opposition: supporters of elementary schools. A task force of appointed members — business leaders, education leaders, political leaders and various community leaders — is busy wrapping up months of exhaustive data collection, goal setting and statistical

analysis to come up with a plan for elementary schools, one described by the effort’s facilitator as a “close and consolidate five-year plan.” Board members will get the report by the end of February, in time to use the document for mulling the potential closure of one or perhaps two schools to help make ends meet.

And that’s just the kind of discussion board members and administrators want the task force to have, with the idea that two dozen heads are better than seven. “The motivation for this was we needed a broader sampling of the community to look at all of these issues,” said Rick Doll, district superintendent. “We have 24

instead of (just) seven. “We do need to build some ownership, some confidence that these folks took a lot of time to investigate and come up with solid recommendations. That’s why I sweat bullets, to make sure this task force had a broad representation — so when Please see TASK, page 2A


To attract sporting events, it’s game on By Shaun Hittle

A vibrant downtown, plenty of shopping spots and restaurants, nice facilities and more than just a little bit of basketball tradition: It all adds up to perfect place for youth sporting events, said Bob Sanner, sports marketing manager for the Lawrence Convention and Visitors Bureau. And families and coaches who traveled to Lawrence this weekend for the Jayhawker Classic youth basketball tournament held at Kansas University agree. “It’s fantastic,” said Matt O’Keefe of his experience over the weekend in Lawrence. Even

though O’Keefe, coach of the Overland Park-based Blue Valley Swish, lives close by, he said he and his family decided to stay in Lawrence for a mini vacation. O’Keefe and his wife, both KU graduates, checked out some of their old college-day hot spots, such as the Yacht Club, while the kids relaxed in the pool at the Holiday Inn Lawrence. “We love the town,” he said. Alan Wilson, coach of the Missouri Valley Magic, brought his team from Springfield, Mo., and said they also had a great time over the weekend. Wilson’s team and their families took advantage of some free tickets to the KU women’s basketball game Satur-

day night, spent the weekend at a local hotel and enjoyed some of the local eating spots. Sanner said that capitalizing on those type of experiences and the draw of increased tourism dollars for local businesses is fueling the Lawrence CVB’s bid to become the premiere spot for youth sporting events. In addition to this weekend’s tournament, Lawrence was recently chosen as host of the United States Specialty Sports Association’s Winter Basketball National Tournament, to be held March 18-20. The event is expected to draw 4,500 people to town. — Shaun Hittle can be reached at 832-7173.

Private schools study options for growth CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1A

don’t expect the shifts to prompt the opening of a new private high school in town, at least not yet. “That’s still always a dream, but we have to start here first,” said Mary Mattern, principal at Corpus Christi Catholic School, which will add a seventh grade in August. “You can’t have a Catholic high school without a Catholic junior high.” Among private educational entities adjusting operations, staff or facilities this coming year: ● Corpus Christi is enrolling up to 24 students for its first seventh-grade class. Space at 6001 Bob Billings Parkway has been converted to accommodate the class, using money generated through development — that’s donation — efforts. Students will follow a seventhgrade curriculum, one that includes language arts, social studies, math, science, physical education, art and electives such as foreign languages and lifetime health. Students also will participate in school-sponsored athletic competitions through the Catholic Youth Organization. Eighth grade will be added for 2012-13. ● St. John is making plans this year to start its new seventh grade in 2012-13. That’s why this year’s fifth-graders are busy working on coming up with a school mascot, colors and perhaps even a motto. Next year, as sixth-graders, they will “begin to moving to a middle school concept,” Newton said. School and church leaders, meanwhile, are busy working on a $3.2 million capital campaign to make room for the new grade,

Expanded Obituaries Every life has a story.

plus the planned addition of eighth grade beginning in 2013-14. The project would add a gym and classrooms, but the school is prepared to use portables if necessary. ● Bishop Seabury Academy’s enrollment will expand to include sixth-graders for the first time, adding to a campus that already has 149 students in grades 7 through 12. The plan is to provide sixth-graders “a strong foundation for college-preparatory education,” said Don Schawang, head of school. The Episcopal school at 4120 Clinton Parkway has room to accommodate the additional students, but officials are considering options for portables or other temporary accommodations. Beth Easter, who has two sons at Langston Hughes School and a daughter still two years away from school, said she likes the public school, but is looking forward to enrolling all three at Seabury — for the academics, the focus and the social interaction with classmates through grade 12. “It’s nice to have those great role models watching over them,” Easter said. “That’s their job as upperclassmen.” ● Veritas Christian School isn’t changing anything. The school at 256 N. Mich. already has students in grades K-12, and sixth-graders already play sports and participate in other activities with seventhand eighth-graders. “I can see why they (school district) are going in this direction,” said Kelly Hustling, administrator for the school that’s in its sixth year of offering secondary education. “It’s a difficult decision for them to make, but it’s one that can be very successful.” ● Century School will drop sixth grade so that the

Kansas University. For now the talk is limited to elementary schools, but Doll knows that the district’s overall budget conversation will stretch beyond such schools themselves and include discussions about all the other expenses that make up a district. “If it’s not facilities, it’s everything else,” Doll said. “We’ll be looking at programs. Everything: counseling, libraries, athletics, activities. When you affect (student-teacher) ratios, you affect electives. Small-enrollment programs and classes.” And in case anyone’s wondering why such a public process has been invoked only for elementary schools, Doll has some answers: ● There are more than twice as many elementary schools in the district than all others combined, and there’s no talk of closing any of the junior highs or high schools. ● Within a month, the school board will be expected to convene some sort of public group to study ways to make cuts involving next year’s programs and other expenses in middle schools and high schools. The new group’s work won’t be as comprehensive as that of the task force, Doll said, but will be considered valuable as board members make their financial deliberations. — Schools reporter Mark Fagan can be reached at 832-7188.

school’s oldest students will be able to “transition” into public schools with their grade-level peers, Principal Jon Statelier said. That means next year’s Century students will range in age from 5 to 11, not 5 to 12, and open up the school — now at capacity with 72 elementary students and 22 preschoolers at 816 Ky. — to another three to six younger students now on a waiting list. ● Prairie Moon Waldorf School, 1853 E. 1600 Road, east of Lawrence Municipal Airport, plans no changes to its preschool and elementary operations, although sixthgraders would be expected to shift into educational opportunities elsewhere. ● Rainier Montessori School, 4601 Clinton Parkway, plans no changes to its elementary program, because its students are grouped into three mixed-age communities: 3-6, 6-9 and 912, said Heather Lawhorn, a teacher and administrator. Leaders at Bishop Seabury and elsewhere say that while nothing has held them back from expanding programs, the Lawrence school district’s upcoming moves offer a new opportunity to move forward with their own approaches. “In our 13 years with the school, we’ve been developing a program that works in tandem within the structure of education in the city,” Schawang said. “Now, we’ve got two things happening at once: a shift in that structure, but also an imperative, on our part, to explore an additional introduction to the program … that’s going to help students be effective learners.”

Man charged with assassination try Authorities on Sunday charged a 22-year-old man described as a pot-smoking loner with trying to assassinate Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and killing others at a political event, revealing that he had scrawled on an envelope the words “my assassination” and “Giffords.” Giffords, 40, lay in intensive care at a Tucson hospital, after being shot in the head at close range. Doctors said she had responded repeatedly to commands to stick out her two fingers, giving them hope she may survive. Court papers filed with the charges against Jared Loughner said he had previous contact with the Democratic lawmaker. The documents said he had received a letter from Giffords in which she thanked him for attending a “Congress on your Corner” event at a mall in Tucson in 2007. Investigators carrying out a search warrant at his parents’ home in a middle-class neighborhood found an envelope in a safe with the words “I planned ahead,” “My assassination” and the name “Giffords” next to what appears to be Loughner’s signature. An official familiar with the Arizona shooting investigation said Sunday that local authorities are looking at a possible connection between Loughner and an online group known for white supremacist, anti-immigrant rhetoric. 2 | IRAN

71 of 106 die in IranAir plane crash An IranAir passenger jet carrying 106 people crashed as it was making an emergency landing Sunday in a snowstorm in the country’s northwest and broke into several pieces, killing 71 of those on board, Iranian media reported. The others survived with light injuries. The pilots of the Boeing-727, operated by Iran’s national airline, attempted the emergency landing in the city of Orumiyeh after reporting a technical failure to the control tower, the semiofficial Mehr news agency reported, quoting a deputy provincial governor, Ebrahim Fatholahi. The nature of the technical failure was unclear. A spokesman for the Iranian civil aviation organization, Abbas Mosayebi, said only that the plane “faced an incident,” state TV reported. The network also said the aircraft disappeared from radar and went down in farmland after making a second attempt to land. There was no word on what might have caused the crash. The aircraft was headed from Tehran to Orumiyeh, capital of West Azerbaijan province, a distance of about 460 miles. 3 | TUNISIA

Union officials: 11 dead in rioting At least 11 people have died in clashes with security forces in new rioting in the North African country where unrest is in its fourth week, local union officials said Sunday. The Interior Ministry, meanwhile, said eight people were killed over the weekend in the western towns of Thala and Kasserine. Rioting to protest joblessness and other social ills has scarred numerous cities across this tiny country since Dec. 17, after a 26-year-old man with a university degree set himself on fire when police confiscated his fruits and vegetables for selling without a permit. Mobs have since attacked public buildings and the local office of the party of President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali. 4 | PAKISTAN

Thousands rally for blasphemy laws Tens of thousands of demonstrators marched in Pakistan’s largest city on Sunday to oppose any change to national blasphemy laws and to praise a man charged with murdering a provincial governor who had campaigned against the divisive legislation. The rally of up to 50,000 people in downtown Karachi was one of the largest demonstrations of support for the laws, which make insulting Islam a capital offense. It was organized before the governor of Punjab province, Salman Taseer, was shot dead on Tuesday in Islamabad by a bodyguard who told a court he considered Taseer a blasphemer. Muslim groups have praised the bodyguard, Mumtaz Qadri, and have used Taseer’s death to warn others not to speak out against the much-derided laws. The size of the Karachi rally, which was large even by the standards of the city of 16 million, showed how bitter the argument is over the decades-old laws.

Local events to memorialize MLK’s legacy By Mark Fagan

Students will sing, share stories of community service and — most of all — honor the legacy of a man whose drive, dedication and determination for peace, justice and racial equality helped change the community, the nation and the world.

ebration, “Beyond the Dream. What Now?” Thursday evening, students from each of the district’s schools will share lessons learned from community service projects and how they connect with the teaching of King. The event also will include performances by the choir from Cordley School and West Junior High School’s Chorale, and refreshments will be served after the program. “This is an event we look forward to every year and helps us celebrate how our schools are helping out in the community in the spirit of Dr. Martin Luther King,” said Frank Harwood, the district’s chief operations officer. Among other scheduled events:

Myrone Grady admitted he was a little down about the Kansas City Chiefs’ playoff loss earlier in the day. But spending a couple of hours Sunday evening with his 8-year-old daughter, Aris, at the Girl Scouts-sponsored “Day at the Races” event temporarily erased the tough loss. “I haven’t thought about it since I walked through the door,” he said. “Right now, this is spending time with my baby.” Grady and Aris were joined by dozens of other Quail Run School daddy/daughter combinations at the Douglas County Fairgrounds on Sunday. The family duos competed in such games as three-legged races, pinewood derby events and musical chairs. Dads tried to catch their breath while snapping pictures or capturing the moments on video, while daughters tugged

Residents find help with finances of fixing pets By Shaun Hittle

Local animal advocates have teamed up to start a nonprofit organization that helps lowincome people spay and neuter their pets. The plans for Fix Our Friends began eight months ago when veterinarians Jennifer O’Driscoll and Gabrielle Bassin, along with Lawrence Humane Society staff member Kayse Aschenbrenner, became

concerned that Lawrence lacked a prog ram to help lowincome residents pay for spaying and neutering their pets. “They might be deciding between caring for their pet and buying food,” Aschenbrenner said. Spaying and neutering costs vary but can run into hundreds of dollars per animal, she said. Pet owners needing help with those costs can call Fix Our Friends, and the organization teams

up with a veterinarian to provide service based on a person’s income and ability to pay. Aschenbrenner said the goal of the group is to reduce the unwanted animal population by removing cost barriers for pet owners. “Some people never even look into” spaying and neutering because of financial concerns, she said. Through the program, costs for spaying and neutering can range from free to $80.

The organization has filed for nonprofit status, and even though it’s just getting off the ground, it has been able to provide services for more than 100 dogs so far and has just begun services for cats. Bassin, a Topekabased veterinarian, said plans include weekly or monthly clinics where low-income residents can bring their pets in for spaying or neutering. That would require a location — maybe a

warehouse or large building. Group officials are hoping a business might be willing to donate a space during weekends. The group is in the process of recruiting more veterinarians and volunteers, along with increasing fundraising.

• Emergency crews responded to a two-alarm structure fire in the 700 section of East 661 Diagonal Road, near Lone Star Lake. Smoke and occasional flames were observable from the road and multiple departments were on scene, including Willow Springs and Wakarusa Township departments. The call regarding the fire came in around 2:15 p.m. Crews were still working at the scene at 3:45 p.m. The fire started as a grass fire but spread to buildings near the site of the fire, according to information provided on the emergency scanner. Around 4:25 p.m., emergency dispatchers received reports of another grass fire in the 2300 section of North 600 Road. According to dispatchers, the grass fire was about an acre large and was headed west, though no structures were in its immediate path.

Worthwhile effort Local law enforcement deserves applause for putting new focus on breaking the cycle of domestic violence.


omestic violence has many faces, and none of them is pretty. Most of these attacks are against women. And police will tell you it’s not unusual for a woman to be a victim repeatedly. In Lawrence, the number of domestic violence cases and attacks against women is staggering. In 2009, for example, police responded to 975 domestic disturbance calls and investigated 71 rapes and 598 incidents of domestic battery, plus 24 sexual battery and 11 stalking cases. So Lawrence police and the Douglas County district attorney’s office are applauded for teaming up and securing grant money to add a detective and a prosecutor who will focus their energy on reducing the number of incidents of domestic violence and other crimes against women. They also will provide continuity for victims. It’s possible, because part of the effort is to convince victims to report domestic violence more often, that the numbers won’t improve right away. “Our goal is to educate the public on these crimes and the importance of reporting them,” said Sgt. Matt Sarna. But the ultimate goal is clear, Sarna said. “We would like to see a decrease in all of these numbers.” The police department secured a $53,613 grant, and the city kicked in $18,000, while the DA’s office’s grant totaled $76,000, with another $16,670 coming from the county. Both offices hope this one year of funding can be extended. Domestic violence cases are tough to investigate and tough to prosecute. The victim and attacker know each other. Not only do they know each other, they have a relationship — and perhaps they have children together. So victims can be reluctant to call police or to follow through and help detectives and prosecutors. And, as is the case with many crimes, other factors can come into play, including alcohol and drug use. So breaking the cycle of domestic violence can be a daunting task. But it’s one that’s well worth undertaking for the safety of county residents.

A month ago Barack Obama was defeated and diminished, his opponents empowered, his supporters so dispirited that they looked upon their onetime hero the way John Greenleaf Whittier regarded Daniel Webster after the Compromise of 1850: “So fallen! So lost!” That was before Obama grabbed his protractor and worked the lame-duck angles, negotiating a tax agreement, prevailing in the battle over gays in the military and gaining approval of an arms-control treaty. He who had fallen had now risen; he who had lost had now won. Even so, there remained liberals who — to push the 1850 comparison —

David Shribman House Republicans are “determined to make a big

gesture this month — to vote to repeal Obamacare even though they know the Democrat-controlled Senate will not go along and even though their new ceremonial practice of reading the Constitution out loud should remind them that Article I, Section 7 gives the president a veto over congressional legislation.”

found themselves embracing the political position of their nemesis, John C. Calhoun: “I hold concession or compromise to be fatal.”

Shifting politics Now the geometry of Washington has shifted again — get your pointy compasses out — and Obama looks up Pennsylvania Avenue to see a Congress and his prospects transformed. The post-election period the president described as “the most productive post-election period we’ve had in decades” has vanished along with the strategies that produced it. Time to recalibrate. All of this is happening at a critical time for Obama, for the Republicans, for the country. In the first decade of this century, American domestic politics resembled A.J.P. Taylor’s classic definition of German history: “a series of turning points where nothing turns.” But now, with monster deficits and massive demog raphic changes afoot, the country cannot afford to continue on a straight line —

a line that would lead to financial insolvency and generational warfare. The f irst baby boomers reached age 65 a few days ago. Millions will follow, as will a gigantic case of entitlement enmity if the deficit, Social Security and Medicare aren’t addressed, not next year, not the year after next, but this year — before Obama’s rivals start announcing their presidential plans, before the White House goes on a campaign footing, before the country’s attention is diverted to the drama inherent in the caucuses and primaries.

Budget plan is critical This is why the president’s budget, which is to be announced only four weeks from now, is of vital importance. He almost certainly will incorporate some of the elements of the bipartisan commission that recommended a tax overhaul and spending cuts. The House Republicans will embrace the latter, the Senate Democrats the former, but in truth the country needs both. The movement of the baby boomers into retirement age — boosting enrollment in Social Security over the next 20 years to 73 million people, up from 47 million now — is only one of two vital demographic factors that have immense political implications. The other is the continued movement of population, and thus of political power, from the North and East to the South and West. This migration seeps congressional representation — and Electoral College votes — from states congenial to Obama and the Democrats to states that view them with skepticism if not outright suspicion, and its effects will be dramatic in the 2012 elections. Demography is destiny, both in financial ledgers and on political maps.

For those reasons alone, the politics of 2011 are unusually complicated. Now add a third factor, a peculiarity of the calendar. Next year, when a third of Senate seats are up for grabs, the Democrats will find themselves disproportionately at risk. Some 23 of the 33 seats being contested in 2012 now are occupied by Democrats. Incumbents in such races ordinarily have the advantage, of course, but this is a period of raging resentment toward the political class, and it is always better for a party to have its rivals’ seats at risk rather than its own. The president has said that the last few weeks of 2010 showed “that we’re not doomed to endless gridlock,” but maneuvering in an environment of divided government and high deficits is hard, as Bill Clinton, who didn’t have the deficit burden that weighs down Obama, can testify. With its dinners with civil rights groups and union officials and its overtures to interest groups, the administration is mending fences with its base. With its newfound power and chairmanships, the Republican congressional leadership is feeling its oats.

Unified action unlikely Coming together, these two forces — one full of suspicions, the other threatening subpoenas — show signs of prying the parties apart. House Republicans are determined to make a big gesture this month — to vote to repeal Obamacare even though they know the Democrat-controlled Senate will not go along and even though their new ceremonial practice of reading the Constitution out loud should remind them that Article I, Section 7 gives the president a veto over congressional legislation.

Once January passes and Congress settles down, however, the president and his Republican rivals have some decisions to make. Many of them come under this rubric: Are we in office to make statements or to make laws — and progress? This is not a question addressed only to Republicans, who made hay in 2009 and 2010 by making obstruction their tool of choice. It is also a question for Democrats, who in the majority often didn’t give the Republicans a fighting chance, only to see the Republicans fight back and gain the main chance. Some Democrats still smart from the president’s compromise on the Bush tax-cut extensions. But they forget for whom they voted in 2008. Obama indicated during his campaign that he was more interested in competence than ideology. The Democrats (who thought they had nominated a third Roosevelt, or maybe a third Johnson) didn’t believe him, and the Republicans (who, just as erroneously, enjoy taunting him as a socialist) didn’t either, and so when he broke his allies’ hearts in December by breaking bread with the Republicans, Democrats felt betrayed rather than redeemed, and Republicans felt befuddled rather than bewitched. If you buy that the December compromise was the product of the Real Obama (and not one shamed by his shellacking) colluding with the Real Republicans (and not those playing to the scorched-earth chorus), then it might be possible to see a way forward for Washington and its reconstituted Congress. It takes two to make a deal, or to make a difference. It takes only one to make a real mess of things. — David Shribman is executive editor of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

Congressional investigations are justified Given the Democrats’ track record of investigating Republican administrations, they will lack credibility when they protest Republicans investigating actions by the Obama administration. Oversight is a primary function of any Congress. The new Republican House majority is expected to conduct several investigations. Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., the new chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, has promised to lead six of them, including one that, according to Issa’s spokesman, Kurt Bardella, will focus on the “institutional culture of waste, fraud and abuse,” within the federal bureaucracy. To be credible, these investigations must expose Republicans as well as Democrats because misspending the public’s money is one of the few bipartisan activities remaining in Washington. The investigation that has the potential to produce the most controversy is one promised by Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y. According to the Washington Post, King, who will head the Homeland Security Committee, has promised to examine the “radicalization of some Muslims in the Unit-

‘McCarthyism’ from the left.”

ed States and the extent to which American Muslims are cooperating with law enforcement authorities. He also plans to probe homeland security issues.” It is a worthy pursuit, but that examination also should include an investigation of the Obama administration’s Justice Department and its approach to rooting out terrorist suspects and how it may have treated them with kid gloves because of political pressure from identity groups like the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). Already one hears familiar cries of “McCarthyism” from the

left. Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn., the first Muslim elected to Congress, was quoted in The Huffington Post as saying the King investigation will “vilify” the Muslim community: “I got so concerned that when I heard about it I actually approached Congressman King on the House floor and told him that, you know, look, we all need to be concerned about violent radicalization, but not just against Muslims, against anybody.” On MSNBC, Ellison elaborated: “What about the guy who flew a plane into the IRS or what about the guy who killed a guard at the Holocaust museum?” Um, excuse me. Those were individual acts and not part of a worldwide movement that, rightly or wrongly, is conducted under the banner of radical Islam with constant references to the Koran and justifications for mass murder. Anyone who doesn’t see the difference is either attempting to divert the attention of the targeted or is in complete denial. Daniel Pipes, director of the Middle East Forum, should be included among the witnesses King calls. Pipes wrote in 2002 that, “Islam, the most political of religions, now enjoys a privileged place in Washington, just

as it does in almost every capital around the world.” And that is why, he thinks, a more serious response needs to be taken toward this political religion. In a 2004 critique of the U.S. Institute of Peace, Pipes wrote, “Over and over again, branches of the American government have been embarrassed by their blindness to jihadist Islam.” He gave four examples of this pattern — a presidential candidate (George W. Bush), the Department of Defense, the New York State prison system and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Since that critique, Pipes’ list has grown. Read it at 4/06/the-us-governments-poorrecord-on-islamists. The Obama and Bush administrations all but predicted another terrorist attack. Isn’t it better to investigate how well the government is doing in preventing it, than to point fingers after the fact? So, let the investigations begin into waste, fraud and abuse and into plots to unleash more terrorism inside America. The one can save our money. The other might save our lives. — Cal Thomas is a columnist for Tribune Media Services.

Inaugural site still up in air TOPEKA — Kan. Gov.-elect Sam Brownback isn’t deciding whether to move his swearing-in ceremony indoors until right before the event today. Brownback spokeswoman Sherriene Jones-Sontag said that the decision would be made this morning after officials see whether a snowstorm was arriving on schedule. The Brownback National Weather Service was predicting up to 5 inches of snow today for the capital city. The inauguration ceremony is usually held on the south steps of the Statehouse. The backup site is the Kansas House Chamber. Jones-Sontag said the key issue is whether the Capitol steps, sidewalks and streets will be too slick for people to get around safely. Brownback’s team did cancel appearances by out-of-town high school musicians so that they would not have to be out on the roads in the bad weather.

Jayhawks survive Wolverines in OT By Gary Bedore

ANN ARBOR, MICH. — Warts and all, Kansas University’s basketball team enters Big 12 Conference play undefeated for the first time since the 2007-08 national championship season. “We are definitely not the national-title team, but we have some good pieces,” KU junior forward Marcus Morris said after the No. 3-ranked Jayhawks’ ugly 67-60 overtime victory over unranked Michigan on Sunday at Crisler Arena. “We definitely are going to try to be that team. We’ll have to see how it goes,” Morris added after scoring a game-high 22 points and grabbing 10 rebounds. Record-wise, the 2010-11 noncon campaign couldn’t have gone any better for the Jayhawks,

ANN ARBOR, MICH. — If not for an overtime in which Kansas University’s basketball team played like its confident, aggressive self, it might have been time to wonder just how good the Jayhawks are despite their undefeated record and No. 3 national ranking. Some might still ask that question in the wake of Sunday’s 67-60 overtime victory in Crisler Arena against a young Michigan squad that can’t shoot straight. After all, none of KU’s 15 victories has come against a team that now resides in the Top 25, and two of them came by a combined margin of three points against UCLA and USC teams that don’t beckon memories of the John Wooden/Bobby Boyd years. Some will call the Jayhawks (15-0) overrated, but to do so would be to forget that Iowa

Tom Keegan

and Minnesota both just gave No. 2 Ohio State fits. This much is certain: Kansas wasn’t very good for the final 23 minutes of regulation, getting outscored 41-26 by the Wolverines (11-5). The KU guards looked a little confused by Michigan’s 1-3-1 zone defense. “We work a lot against the 1-3-1, Please see IT’S STILL, page 3B

‘Phenomenal’ defense stymies Chiefs By Doug Tucker Associated Press Sports Writer

CHIEFS QB MATT CASSEL, RIGHT, IS SACKED for a 10-yard loss by Baltimore linebacker Ray Lewis in the fourth quarter. The Ravens rolled to a 30-7 victory Sunday in Kansas City, Mo.

KANSAS CITY, MO. — Ray Lewis knows a championship defense when he sees one. Now the Kansas City Chiefs do, too. Lewis and Baltimore’s tough and savvy defense overwhelmed the young Chiefs on Sunday, sacking Matt Cassel three times and forcing five turnovers in a 30-7 victory in the opening round of the playoffs. The Chiefs (10-7), who won the AFC West with a six-game

improvement and took pride in not beating themselves, managed just 25 yards in the second half. “To set records is one thing,” said Lewis, who forced a fumble and had a sack in the second-half dismantling of the Chiefs. “To come out and play the way we’ve played in the third quarter all year and the last two weeks, just giving up seven points to opponents, that’s championship-caliber football.” Baltimore (13-4) broke open a close game with a touchdown

and two field goals off turnovers in the second half. Joe Flacco threw two touchdown passes, Billy Cundiff kicked three field goals and Willis McGahee closed out the scoring with a 25-yard run in the fourth quarter. The Ravens will head to Pittsburgh next Saturday, renewing one of the league’s fiercest rivalries. They split their season series with the Steelers, with each team winning on the other’s home field. Kansas City finishes the season saddled with an NFL-record

seventh straight playoff loss, dating back 17 years. “Our defense played phenomenal,” Ravens running back Ray Rice said. “They came out in the second half and gutted that offense. It was impressive. It’s impressive to be a part of this.” On a raw, windy afternoon, with temperatures hovering in the low 20s, Flacco and Cundiff took advantage of three interceptions by Cassel and fumbles by Dexter McCluster and Jamal Charles to Please see EMOTIONAL, page 8B

NBA Roundup


High-scoring tilt expected in title game SCOTTSDALE, ARIZ. (AP) — Steve Spurrier, the ball coach who knows a little about offense, said the game could wind up 60-55. Kirk Herbstreit, the TV analyst who knows a little about these teams, said defenses must bristle when they keep hearing about scores in the 55-53 range. The bookmakers in Las Vegas, who don’t throw out their numbers just for fun, envision something more like 38-35. There’s a reason Auburn and Oregon are playing in the BCS national title game tonight, a reason the matchup has turned into a red-hot ticket. These are two newcomers to the championship scene, both with offenses that, almost literally, never take a break. Auburn has Cam Newton, the Heisman Trophy winner who led the SEC in rushing, passer efficiency and scoring. Oregon has LaMichael James, the key to an offense that likes to snap the ball nine to 11 seconds after the end of the previous play, and one that scores a nation-high 49.1 points a game. “We’re anticipating it being very quick, obviously, from the things that we’ve heard,” Auburn coach Gene Chizik said. “But we’re prepared for that.” Chizik and Oregon’s Chip Kelly are, quite possibly, the most obscure coaching duo to pace the sideline in a championship game since the BCS began in 1999. Both are in their second seasons as head coach at their schools. Chizik is a former defensive coordinator at Auburn and Texas who came back to the Plains despite a 5-19 record at his first head-coaching job at Iowa State. Kelly was hand-picked by his predecessor, Mike Bellotti. After his first game as Oregon’s head coach, a 19-8 loss to Boise State to start 2009, Kelly famously cut a check to reimburse a season-ticket holder who wrote him to complain about the performance. Chizik and Kelly are both success stories in their own right, but have spent the week puncturing the long-held theory that the most intriguing characters in college sports often are the coaches. Neither has said much memorable in the weeklong build up. After posing stiffly for the cameras in front of the crystal championship ball Sunday, the coaches headed into their final pregame news conferences. Asked for his opening statement, Kelly responded: “Game is tomorrow night. Let’s go play. Questions?” Auburn has heard questions all season about Newton’s status, the result of an investigation into allegations that his father was involved in a failed pay-for-play scheme during Newton’s recruitment to Mississippi State. The NCAA cleared Newton to play shortly before the SEC title game, and the the Tigers confident — at least for now — they won’t have to give back the crystal ball if they win it.

UM: Jayhawks tough on ‘D’ By Jesse Newell

ANN ARBOR, MICH. — Michigan basketball coach John Beilein says there was more that went into Michigan’s poor offensive effort Sunday than simply bad shooting. “Kansas is really known as being a good defensive team,” Beilein said after his team’s 67-60 loss to Kansas University, “and they played us really tough.” Michigan especially struggled in the first half, posting a season-low 18 points on 6-for-

23 shooting. The Wolverines also had nine first-half turnovers, with Beilein commenting that KU’s players were “blowing up” Michigan’s plays with their defensive pressure. “They guarded the heck out of us in the first half, and we did not get many clean looks,” Beilein said. “They’re so long and athletic — that challenges us right now.” Overall, UM went just 4for-28 from three-point range (14.3 percent) — its worst three-point shooting percentage in a game since the 200607 season.

The Wolverines’ top longrange shooters — Stu Douglass, Evan Smotrycz and Matt Vogrich — went a combined 0-for-7 from three. “I’m going to be beating myself up until the Ohio State game (Wednesday),” said Douglass, who went 0-for-5 from three after entering as a 42. 2 percent three-point shooter. “I know I shouldn’t be. But if one or two of those drop, it’s a different game.” KU also forced 15 Michigan turnovers, which was above the Wolverines’ season average (11.3).

“We’re not going to play better defensive teams than that,” Beilein said. Defensively, Michigan had success by switching to a 1-3-1 zone in the second half. The Wolverines hadn’t had much luck this season with the zone until Sunday, but Beilein said he wanted to try it after it bothered the Jayhawks in last year’s 75-64 KU victory. “We did want to change defenses on them over and over again, just because of their sheer talent,” Beilein said. “You’ve got to keep giving them different looks.”

and we meant to do different things than we did,” KU coach Bill Self said. “We reverted back and didn’t attack. Of course, we didn’t make shots, but certainly, that was about as bad as you can attack a zone.” KU made just two of 20 three-pointers in regulation. “A lot of it was them, and a lot of it was us,” Self said. “The more we missed and the tighter we got, the more compact their zone got, and we couldn’t play through our bigs as much.” KU guards Tyshawn Taylor and Josh Selby have the quickness to blow by most guards checking them manto-man. Experience tends to be as important as quickness working against zones, and Sherron Collins was a master at it by his senior year. Neither Taylor nor Selby ran a college team until this year, and they’ll experience growing pains, particularly against zones. It was a particularly trying day for Selby, who is so talented he sometimes makes it easy to forget he’s a teenager. He played like one Sunday and carried himself as a young player. As is the case with most freshmen, Selby’s body language tends to be more reflective of his own play than the team’s performance, as was evidenced by how disappointed he looked when the team had double-digit leads in the first half when he couldn’t find his shot. Selby made one of 10 shots and one of seven threes. Tyrel Reed didn’t shoot much better from long range, making two of nine, but did hit one in OT. KU will face zone defenses with increasing regularity, given how well it worked for Michigan, which is a good thing because the more experience the Jayhawks get, the better they’ll attack them. If it continues to rely on bombing away from long distance, KU will bury teams when it shoots well, underachieve when it doesn’t. The Big 12 schedule awaits plenty of environments just as difficult as Michigan’s, an appealing one thanks to a spirited band that belts one of the coolest fight songs in the land and thanks to the seating of the students close to the court. Far from an encouraging performance for KU, it still counts as a good win.

KANSAS FORWARD MARCUS MORRIS RIPS AWAY AN OFFENSIVE REBOUND from Michigan defenders Jordan Morgan (52) and Zack Novak (0) during overtime. KU held on for a 67-60 victory Sunday in Ann Arbor, Mich.

team to that team because that’s not fair to these guys, too.” This KU team, which also had scares in a one-point victory over UCLA and twopoint victory over USC, survived some maddening developments Sunday. KU led by 15 points (25-10) with four minutes left in the first half and 13 (41-28) with 11 to go. The Wolverines (11-5) finally caught KU, 51-all, on a drive to the goal by Darius Morris with :35 left. Marcus Morris had a chance to win it, but his threepointer from the corner clanged with :04 left. “Bad,” Self said of KU’s final possession of regulation. “You’ve got to drive it there. We didn’t have a timeout (to discuss options). Hopefully we’ll get some experience through that. That was an opportunity to drive it. They’re not going to foul. We bailed ’em out by shooting a jumper there. I didn’t think that was very good, but Marcus played well. He did.” For what it’s worth, Marcus — he and brother Markieff combined for eight straight points following a Zack Novak three that opened OT — figured his three from the corner was money. “I didn’t think it was good, I knew it was good. I knew for sure I made it,” Marcus stated. “The shot was short. I would shoot it again.” Is that because he considers himself the team’s “go-to guy” who has to make something happen in crunch time? “No. Any of us can be the go-to guy,” he said, pointing to

his brother (13 points, 11 boards) as an example. “Kieff’s shot was the gamechanger tonight,” he added of Markieff’s three that gave KU a 56-54 lead with 3:41 left in OT. No doubt Markieff ’s trey was huge. “Kieff makes the biggest shot of the game for us,” Self said. After the three, Markieff Morris then fed Marcus for a basket and ensuing foul shot. Tyrel Reed (10 points, 2-of-

9 three-point shooting) answered a Tim Hardaway layup with a three to give KU a 62-56 lead at 2:37. The Wolverines crept no closer than four after that. Self didn’t like the way the Jayhawks played overall — “We attacked their zone miserably, that was a miserable display of shooting,” he said — but was fired up about their play in OT. He tried to steady the ship during the huddle prior to the extra-session tipoff. “I said, ‘We just played a bad 40 (minutes). Let’s play a good five,” Self said of his message to the troops. “That’s exactly what we did. I thought we competed and played pretty well in overtime.” KU survived an off night by Josh Selby, who hit one of 10 shots and scored five points. The Morris’ hit 12 of 25 shots; the rest of the team hit eight of 31. “Last year we played the exact same game the exact same way in Tennessee, but we got beat,” Self said of KU’s nonconference finale — a loss to UT in Knoxville. “I’d rather teach lessons through winning than not winning.” Of course, he’s pleased his team survived the nonconference slate unscathed. “I’m happy we won today, don’t get me wrong. I am happy we’re undefeated,” he said. “I don’t think we played to that level, obviously, today. It’s all preparation for your league, and league is far more important than nonconference. People get hung up on records, and I think records are important, but your conference record weighs so much more than this.”

NOTEBOOK Releford ailing Kansas University sophomore Travis Releford sprained his left ankle with 4:56 left in the first half and did not return. “He turned his ankle,” KU coach Bill Self said. “He said he couldn’t come back (in game). I certainly anticipate him playing

on Wednesday (at Iowa State). It is not a high-ankle sprain. It’s one where he’ll be sore, but he should be able to bounce back and play pretty soon.”

Brady says ... Brady Morningstar (four points, 2-of-3 shooting) on the

victory: “A win is a win. Sometimes they are good. Sometimes they are ugly. Sometimes you shouldn’t win and do win. We were up by 15. We should have cracked them when we had a chance. It didn’t happen. But it’s good we were able to come out with a win.”

Vitale picks Self Dick Vitale on Twitter revealed his midseason coach of the year is Self. Player of the year is UConn’s Kemba Walker and “Diaper Dandy” is Ohio State’s Jared Sullinger. — GARY BEDORE

Dear Culver City: Your daughter and her husband are freeloaders who are taking advantage of your reluctance

friends will invariably ask, “Why didn’t you bring Jim?” The honest answer, “He didn’t feel like coming,” seems unnecessarily hurtful. But I don’t feel comfortable making up fake excuses, saying he has to work when I know he’s home surfing the web or reading a book. How do I respond? — Puzzled

Dear Puzzled: If little white lies bother you, you can be direct (“You know how Jim to throw them out. Where can be.”) or honest and evadoes your wife stand on this? sive (“Jim couldn’t make it.”). You two need to present a But if these are good friends, united front when you inform your daughter that you can no longer afford to allow the unit to be occupied rent-free. If they are willing to pay a reasonable rent, they can stay. Otherwise, give them a deadline to move out. Offer to help them find jobs and another place to live. If you can afford it, you could even donate something toward their expenses until they get settled in elsewhere. They won’t like it, but unless you put your foot down, they will drain you of every last penny. It’s your choice.

Things get ‘palpable’ on ‘The Bachelor’ Like a once-promising band reduced to wedding gigs and one-night stands at Kiwanis club socials, Train performs incidental make-out music for Brad and “one lucky lady” on tonight’s two-hour helping of “The Bachelor” (7 p.m., ABC). With a magic carnival glowing in the background, Brad and a willing worthy named Ashley H. exchange stories of absent and emotionally reticent fathers. A moment is shared. According to a press release from ABC, their connection is “palpable.” We’re also informed that Brad and Ashley will share a Ferris wheel ride. And so much more. ● In addition to his gig on “Britain’s Got Talent” and its American counterpart on NBC, Piers Morgan has hosted the popular U.K. series “P iers Morgan’s Life Stories.” Tonight’s “Life Stories” (7 p.m., TV Guide) profiles singer Susan Boyle. Apparently, this is not to be confused with the Susan Boyle special previously aired in heavy rotation on TV Guide. Morgan is set to move into Larry King’s seat on CNN next Monday. ● A wronged cop (David Lyons) becomes a comic book hero with the help of a criminal carnival in the repeat of the pilot episode of “The Cape” (8 p.m., NBC). Look for Summer Glau as his sidekick, the blogger Orwell. A young actress, Glau has already appeared in a remarkable number of cult series, including “Angel,” “Firefly,” “The 4400,” “Dollhouse” and “Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles.” ● Tatyana Ali stars in “Love that Girl!” (8 p.m., TV One), created by Bentley Kyle Evans, producer of “The Jamie Foxx Show” and “Martin.”

Tonight’s other highlights ● The college football teams for Auburn and Oregon meet in the BCS National Title Game (7:30 p.m., ESPN). ● An investigation into a patient in a mental ward causes Lightman to question his own sanity in a two-hour helping of “Lie to Me” (7 p.m., Fox). ● Having profiled Robert E. Lee last week “American Experience” (8 p.m., PBS, check local listings) repeats “U.S. Grant: Warrior,” a look at the victorious general of the Union Army and 18th president of the United States. ● Casey’s blessed event on “Greek” (8 p.m., ABC Family). ● More spoiled brats get a wake up call (or a tweet, IM, or whatever) from reality on the season-two premiere of “You’re Cut Off!” (8 p.m., VH1). ● Kono’s surfing experience comes in handy on “Hawaii Five-O” (9 p.m., CBS). ● A magician can’t escape death on “Castle” (9 p.m., ABC). ● The guys drive to Palm Beach to undergo procedures on “Men of a Certain Age” (9 p.m., TNT). ● 2,000 pet rats: Can’t live with ’em, can’t live without ’em, on “Hoarders” (9 p.m., A&E). Cult choice Estranged brothers (Owen Wilson, Jason Schwartzman and Adrien Brody) bond aboard a train ride through India in the 2007 dramedy “The Darjeeling Limited” (7:25 p.m., Sundance), directed by Wes Anderson.

JACQUELINE BIGAR’S STARS For Monday, Jan. 10: This year, you have a unique opportunity to grow and evolve in a new direction. Some of you might get stuck in old and comfortable ways. If you are single, you could wake up to discover that you are in a compulsive relationship. If you are attached, the two of you will be adding yet another dimension to your relationship. Aries can be an anchor. The Stars Show the Kind of Day You'll Have: 5Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult Aries (March 21-April 19) ★★★★ You perk up midmorning. Quite possibly, the daredevil characteristic associated with your sign emerges. Tonight: On top of your game. Taurus (April 20-May 20) ★★★ Note what is happening, and do some heavy thinking before you leap into action. Take your time, as the unexpected occurs when you least expect it. Tonight: Make it early. Gemini (May 21-June 20) ★★★★★ Success greets the Twin when least expected. Honor who you are and willingly move a project in a new direction. Tonight: Only

where people are. Cancer (June 21-July 22) ★★★★ Manage a situation and be more clear about your expectations. The choices you make probably should vary with each individual. Tonight: Are you burning the candle at both ends? Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) ★★★★ Don't hesitate to bring in an expert, but don't make a decision until more facts come forward. No one can make a sound decision if information is being left out. Tonight: Choose a favorite mental pastime. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) ★★★★ Work directly with partners. You'll see a dramatic change as a result, though there could be considerable browbeating and ego involvement from all parties until you find the right path. Tonight: Dinner with a favorite person. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) ★★★★ Deferring doesn't necessarily label you as being unstable, but rather as knowing when to cut out. Tonight: If a suggestion appeals to you, why not? Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) ★★★★ Dive into a project as if there is no tomor-

row. You could have a creative insight or opportunity that distracts you. You don't want to say "no." Tonight: Working late if need be. Sagittarius (Nov. 22Dec. 21) ★★★★★ Let go of a need to be logical and efficient. When facing a hassle or initiating a new project, don't hesitate to opt for a brainstorming session. Tonight: Be spontaneous. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) ★★★★ Be aware of the demands you put on yourself. You push yourself way too hard sometimes. Tonight: Try to get home early. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) ★★★★★ Make calls and reach out for others. In a meeting, allow others to speak and express their ideas. Tonight: Use care with your finances. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) ★★★★ Stop, and before compromising, look at your assets and what you have to offer. Know that you offer much more than money or material security. Tonight: Time for a treat. — The astrological forecast should be read for entertainment only.

NEW BIBLE Jumble Books Go To:

Dear Annie: My wife and I are in our mid-60s. For most of our lives, we have done pretty well, but lately we’ve had f inancial diff iculties because our incomes have been significantly decreased while our debt has not. My health is failing, and I don’t know how much longer I can continue to work. During the good times, we allowed our daughter and her husband to move into the second unit of the duplex we own. We charged minimal rent, which they soon stopped paying altogether. They don’t work and do nothing to help around the house. They help themselves to our food without telling us, so when we go to the refrigerator, it is often empty. They have trashed their living space, and I need to get them out so I can get some rent coming in. When I tell them about my f inancial situation, their response is, “It’s not our problem.” When I say they must move out, they tell me what an evil person I am. I don’t know how to end this without totally destroying what little family we have left. Any ideas? — Slowly Drowning in Culver City

Rodgers, Packers boot Eagles PHILADELPHIA (AP) — You can put Aaron Rodgers in that elite quarterback class. He has his first playoff victory. Rodgers threw for three scores, rookie James Starks ran for 123 yards, and the Green Bay Packers beat Michael Vick and the Philadelphia Eagles, 21-16, in an NFC wild-card game Sunday. Rodgers had to watch from the sideline while Vick nearly led the Eagles back. But Tramon Williams intercepted Vick’s pass for Riley Cooper in the end zone with 33 seconds left to seal the win. The sixth-seeded Packers (11-6) are heading to Atlanta

(13-3) for a divisional playoff game Saturday night. Rodgers patiently waited three years to become Green Bay’s starter and took over after Brett Favre’s messy departure before the 2008 season. He long ago made Packers fans forget about Favre, and now has punctuated his impressive resume with his first playoff win in two tries. It wasn’t Rodgers’ fault Green Bay lost 51-45 in overtime to Arizona last January. These aren’t the same Packers. This patchwork squad has 10 different starters, and a much stronger defense.

pull away. Pro Bowlers Lewis safety Ed Reed led the charge. “You just come in and make up your mind when things start going your way they start going your way,” Lewis said. “We knew that this was a very tough place to come play. They have a very talented ball club. We were able to show them and that’s kind of how we are built. We are built for 60 minutes.” In an emotional postgame locker room, the Ravens gave the game ball to Reed. On Friday morning, his family said they believe a young man who jumped into the Mississippi River trying to elude police was probably his younger brother, Brian Reed. The search for a body at the scene in Louisiana has been called off. “Just being there for strength, respect for what’s going on,” Reed said of his teammates he calls his second family. “They just gave me the team ball for my family. “My family kept me

focused. My older brother called me and told me, ‘Do what you do. You handle your business, we’ll take care of everything over here.” It was a week of heartache for the Ravens in more ways. Earlier in the week, the sister of linebackers coach Dean Pees died. “Any time you lose someone like that it just draws every one of us closer,” Ravens coach John Harbaugh said. The Ravens led, 10-7, in the third quarter when Kansas City lost a fourth-and-inches gamble and then collapsed, quickly. Dawan Landry stopped the play, throwing Charles for a 5yard loss. On the next play, Tamba Hali drew a 15-yard penalty for a late hit on Flacco and the Ravens drove in for Cundiff’s 29-yard field goal, making it 13-7 with 6:36 left in the third. A moment later, Lewis put a jarring hit on McCluster, knocking the ball loose. Chris Carr recovered on the K.C. 17, leading to another 29-yarder by Cundiff.

Then, a harried Cassel was intercepted by Landry, who angled left to the 21. An illegal block on Baltimore’s Cody Redding pushed the Ravens back 10 yards, but Flacco made sure to convert this opportunity into a touchdown. On second down, he connected with McGahee for 20 yards, then followed with a 13yard completion to tight end Todd Heap, who had 10 catches for 108 yards. On second-

and-4, Flacco fired it over the middle to Anquan Boldin in the back of the end zone, beating cornerback Brandon Flowers and giving the Ravens a 23-7 lead. “We turned the ball over and that’s not characteristic of us,” Kansas City Pro Bowl left guard Brian Waters said. “When we had to make plays, we weren’t able to. When they had to make plays, they did. You can’t turn the ball over.”
