TOPEKA — Gov. Sam Brownback on Wednesday called for a cut in the state personal income tax and minimal budget increases, saying it will put Kansas in the fast lane on the road to economic growth. “Let’s put our ‘lost decade’ … in the rear-view mirror and speed ahead — at 75 miles per hour — to make this decade the decade of growth and job creation,” Brownback, a Republican, said in the State of the State address. But his plan hit immediate bumps from legislators. Brownback’s proposal would cancel a scheduled decrease in the state sales tax rate and eliminate many state tax credits and deductions, such as the deduction for charitable contributions and mortgage interest payments, and the earned income tax credit, which helps low-income families.

Senate President Steve Morris, R-Hugoton, said Brownback’s tax plan and others that have been proposed for the 2012 legislative session need to be closely reviewed. “Taxes are very important,” Morris said. “We have to be very careful.” Morris said he wants to see the recommendations of a special tax committee he formed before reaching any conclusions.

When an early-morning fire on Dec. 30 ripped through the Guillory family’s house west of Lawrence, it also destroyed all of the belongings of the family of 11. Thankfully, Roger and Camay Guillory and their children escaped the blaze safely at their house, 1772 North 200 Road. Fire officials said it burned after a space heater ignited some bedding. The Guillory family did not have insurance. The two weeks since then have been a struggle as family members try to get their lives back to some sense of normalcy. They’ve relied on the kindness of friends and strangers for

everything from lodging to food to other basics. “It’s just been countless organizations offering to help out,” said Roger Guillory, 36, who works as a relief operator ICL Performance Products in North Lawrence. As the family continues to look for permanent housing, several Douglas County organizations are teaming up to collect household items beginning today. United Way of Douglas County AmeriCorps members are seeking to collect these items:

Bed frames and mattresses, bedding, pillows, blankets and towels.

Small and large appliances, vacuum cleaner, toaster, television, radio and CD player.

TOPEKA — The first election in Kansas under a state law requiring voters to show photo identification appears to have gone smoothly, but officials debated Wednesday whether the sales tax vote in a small southwestern Kansas town was a valid test of the new rule. Voters in Cimarron overwhelmingly approved a 1.25 percent sales tax to finance a new municipal swimming pool for the community of 2,200 residents about 175 miles west of Wichita. About 460 people voted, with 18 casting provisional ballots that won’t be counted until the county clerk’s office confirms their Kobach eligibility to participate. Gray County Clerk Bonnie Swartz said most of the voters casting provisional ballots had moved to a new address since they had last voted. Only one person cast a provisional ballot because she didn’t have a valid photo ID, and Swartz said the voter had declined to bring one. “She’s against voter ID, so it’s a protest,”

Those who donate books to Lawrence’s Goodwill thrift store might be surprised to know those books could end up in the hands of readers thousands of miles away. For the past year and half, the local Goodwill has been shipping their most valuable books to the Goodwill of Western Missouri and Eastern Kansas’ main office, which then lists those books for sale on Amazon.com. The change has been successful, said Stuart Hoffman, vice president of marketing and development for the regional Goodwill organization. “Books on Amazon bring in a higher value,” Hoffman said. “For us, the more money we can make on our books, the more money we can pour into our mission.” For 2012, the regional Goodwill expects to bring in $1 million from its online books, which is about 2 percent of its business.

Amazon won’t allow Goodwill to sell the books under their direct name, so the regional Goodwill uses the name Good Books Will Follow. The regional Goodwill has about 8,500 books online and sells about 225 books a day. On Wednesday, the books varied from the best-seller “The Help” to the educational book “Introduction to the Croatian and Serbian Language.” In between there was a “101 Cool Magic Tricks” and “The Anarchist Handbook.” Textbooks and cookbooks sell best, Hoffman said. The most the nonprofit ever received for a book was $650. The book was about hacking computers. While sales remain steady, Hoffman said, there can be some unpredictable factors. “Believe it or not, based on the sales over the weekend I can tell what kind of weather there was,” he said. “If it was the dead of winter, when it is freezing across the country, people stayed in and bought books.” Selling books online means those books aren’t available for customers to purchase at

has endorsed Mitt Romney for the Republican presidential nomination. Kobach said Wednesday he believes the former Massachusetts governor has the best record on immigration issues among the field of GOP hopefuls. He cited Romney’s veto of Massachusetts legislation to allow some illegal immigrants to pay the lower tuition normally Romney reserved for legal residents at state colleges. Kansas enacted such a law in 2004. Kobach is a former University of Missouri-Kansas City law professor who helped write tough immigration laws in Alabama and Arizona. He’s also one of the leading conservative Republicans in Kansas, and his endorsement comes at a time when some GOP conservatives have reservations about Romney. The Kansas GOP plans to have presidential caucuses March 10.

local stores, which has disappointed some shoppers. But Hoffman said those disappointed the most were the book buyers who are doing in the same thing Goodwill is: scanning bar codes to see which books Amazon will take. “They were buying the books from us for 99 cents and $1.50 and then turning around and putting them up on Amazon,” Hoffman said. “I don’t begrudge them for having a business. But we are in business to make money. We need to be able to invest right back into our mission.” Other local nonprofit thrift stores, such as The Salvation Army and the Social Service League, haven’t gone to online book selling. At the Social Service League, there is an entire room of books priced between 25 to 50 cents, manager Jean Ann Pike said. She keeps the prices low to keep people reading. And she has considered selling some of them online, but as the store’s sole employee she doesn’t know where she would find the time. “I’ve thought about it, and that is as far as it got,” Pike said. — Reporter Christine Metz can be reached at 832-6352.

their public school staff IDs. “People aren’t having a hard time meeting the standard,” said Kansas House Elections Committee Chairman Scott Schwab, an Olathe Republican. Some legislators and even Swartz questioned whether voting in a more populous area would give election officials a better indication of any potential problems. Cimarron has a single polling place, a 4-H building about a quarter of a mile from town, and officials had expected most voters to drive there — with their licenses serving as a valid photo ID under the law. “I think most people in Cimarron would carry driver’s licenses and everybody would know everybody,” said Senate President Steve Morris, a Hugoton Republican. “I’m not sure that it would be an adequate test.” Kobach and Schwab also argued that the Cimarron election was a good test for the photo ID law because Kansans in urban and suburban areas are used to carrying photo ID everywhere and producing it for routine transactions in stores and banks for employees they don’t know.

Van der Sloot pleads guilty to murder After Joran van der Sloot pleaded guilty Wednesday to the 2010 murder of a Peruvian woman he met at a Lima casino, his lawyer argued that the killing was tragically triggered by fallout from the very event that originally brought his client notoriety. The “persecution” suffered by Van der Sloot after the unsolved disappearance of U.S. teenager Natalee Holloway five years earlier scarred him psychologically with a kind of post-traumatic stress disorder, defense attorney Jose Jimenez told the three female judges who are to sentence his client Friday. The young Dutchman has been the prime suspect in the Holloway case since she disappeared on Aruba five years to the day before the killing of the 21-year-old Peruvian woman, business student Stephany Flores. With the evidence against him in the Peru killing strong, Van der Sloot entered a guilty plea Wednesday at his lawyer’s urging, hoping for a reduced sentence. “I truly am sorry for this act. I feel very bad,” the 24-year-old defendant said, showing no emotion in a brief admission of guilt in fractured Spanish. He did not use the Dutch translator provided for the proceeding. Prosecutors are asking for a 30-year prison sentence under charges that carry a 15-year minimum.

Without even filling out a single ballot, more than 7,000 registered voters soon will find themselves with a new elected representative. And it’s only the beginning. Douglas County commissioners voted Wednesday to adjust boundaries of their three commission districts, moving to accommodate a decade of population changes reflected in the 2010 Census. The plan comes as state lawmakers prepare to start redrawing districts for legislators and members of Congress, which could affect representation for thousands of county residents. “We hope that is sooner rather than later,” said Jamie Shew,

Douglas County clerk. “You guys are quite a bit ahead of the Legislature.” The county’s own boundary changes came on a 2-1 vote, with Democrats Gaughan Mike Gaughan and Nancy Thellman backing a plan that gives Gaughan’s district more of northwestern and southwestern Lawrence and expands Thellman’s district into eastern Lawrence. The new boundaries tend to follow major streets and neighborhood boundaries, Gaughan said, while each district now has between 36,900 and 36,999 residents.

“Each district is almost identical,” said Gaughan, elected earlier in the meeting by his colleagues to serve as commission chairman for the coming year. Commissioner Jim Flory, a Republican, opposed the boundary changes. His preferred plan called for shifting only two precincts, moving some voters living southwest of 15th and Iowa streets from his district into Gaughan’s. Under Flory’s plan, Thellman’s district wouldn’t change at all because it already was within 69 residents of having the 36,942 deemed optimal by the Census. “It’s just about as simple as it can get,” said Flory, whose seat will be up for election in No-

vember. “It’s the simplest, most straightforward and least disruptive.” Commissioners serve the county at large, overseeing a $67.7 million annual budget that finances services including law enforcement, zoning, and road construction and maintenance. But they are elected by districts, which are to be evenly divided by population. Here’s a look at the changes and how they change the math leading into the November election:

Gaughan’s 1st District will gain 3,275 Lawrence residents in precincts voting at Immanuel Lutheran Church, Presbyterian Manor and a portion of those

Motion to praise governor’s funding plan fails

Homicide off list of top causes of death For the first time in almost half a century, homicide has fallen off the list of the nation’s top 15 causes of death, bumped by a lung illness that often develops in elderly people who have choked on their food. The 2010 list, released by the government Wednesday, reflects at least two major trends: Murders are down, and deaths from certain diseases are on the rise as the population ages, health authorities said. Homicide was overtaken at No. 15 by pneumonitis, seen mainly in people 75 and older. It happens when food or vomit goes down the windpipe and causes deadly damage to the lungs. This is the first time since 1965 that homicide failed to make the list, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Wine researcher accused of faking data A University of Connecticut researcher known for his work on red wine’s benefits to cardiovascular health falsified his data in more than 100 instances, university officials said Wednesday. UConn officials said nearly a dozen scientific journals are being warned of the potential problems after publishing his studies in recent years. The researcher, Dr. Dipak Das, did some studies of resveratrol, an ingredient in red wine that has shown potential for promoting health. But Dr. Nir Barzilai, whose research team conducts resveratrol research at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York, told The Associated Press that Das is not a major figure in the field. The new allegations will not make a material difference to resveratrol research, which is being conducted extensively around the world with encouraging results from many labs, Barzilai said. Enthusiasm in the potential health benefits from red wine grew after a widely reported study in 2006 in which obese mice lived longer, healthier lives after getting resveratrol. Das was not involved in that research.

Survey: Conflict strong between rich, poor Tensions between the rich and poor are increasing and at their most intense level in nearly a quarter-century, a new survey shows. Americans now see more social conflict over wealth inequality than over the hot-button topics of immigration, race relations and age. The survey released Wednesday by the Pew Research Center highlights U.S. perceptions of the economic divide, an issue that has moved to the forefront in the 2012 presidential campaign amid stubbornly high unemployment, increasing poverty and protests by the Occupy movement. The findings come as voters in New Hampshire’s primary Tuesday night made clear that the economy was the issue that mattered most to them. In the end, they chose Mitt Romney by a large margin, even as Republican rivals already gearing up for more competitive contests in South Carolina and elsewhere had stepped up populist attacks on him as a heartless corporate raider who slashed jobs.

really transformed it,” Massey said. “It is to the point now that the number of patrons who come into the building for services is more than the building can really handle.” Evinger said she hopes community members ultimately get behind the idea of a new library. “There is so much I would like to see the library be able to do,” Evinger said. “I really would like it to become a center point for the community.” Both Evinger and Massey said having a library that could support more computers and other pieces of technology was a goal. Additional space for meeting rooms also is high on the list of possible improvements. Massey said the library board will have multiple discussions in 2012 about possible plans for a new library and will reach out to the community to get feedback. Please see EUDORA, page 4A

Eudora officials to discuss ideas for new library, safety facility at meeting “

TOPEKA — Bipartisan discomfort with Gov. Sam Brownback’s school finance plan emerged Wednesday among members of the State Board of Education. Education Board member Ken Willard, a Republican from Hutchinson, who has voiced support of Brownback’s school funding proposal, pushed for approval of a motion that applauded the governor’s efforts. Willard’s motion received support from five Republicans on the board, but two Democrats opposed it, and two Republicans and one Democrat abstained from voting. That killed the motion, leaving it one vote short of the six votes required for approval on the 10-member board. Willard’s motion read: “Be it moved that the State Board of Education approves the efforts of the governor’s office to craft a new school finance formula based upon input from a broad spectrum of Kansas business and education leaders.” Willard described his motion as a nonpolitical expression of appreciation for Brownback, a Republican, for keeping the board in the loop on his school finance plan. John Bacon, a Republican from Olathe, supported Willard’s motion, saying, “I don’t understand why people would want to snub their nose at the governor.” Jana Shaver, a Republican from Independence, said she disagreed with the part of Brownback’s school finance

Downtown redevelopment is a growing topic in Eudora as discussions heat up for both a new library and a police/fire station to be built on the site of a former school building. The Eudora City Council has scheduled a special meeting for 7 p.m. Tuesday to discuss ideas related to a new public safety facility that could be built on the site of a recently razed school building on the south end of downtown Eudora. The city discussion comes at the same time that leaders of the Eudora Public Library begin planning and gauging public interest in constructing a new library on a separate portion of the former school site, which consumes about a city block. “We’re working really hard to add to the downtown and revitalize the entire area,” said Kenny

EPA: Power plants main global warming culprits Districts CONTINUED FROM PAGE 3A

Kansas among states with high greenhouse gas polluting facilities By Dina Cappiello Associated Press

WASHINGTON — The most detailed data yet on emissions of heat-trapping gases show that U.S. power plants are responsible for the bulk of the pollution blamed for global warming. Power plants released 72 percent of the greenhouse gases reported to the Environmental Protection Agency for 2010, according to information released Wednesday that was the first catalog of global warming pollution by facility. The data include more than 6,700 of the largest industrial sources of greenhouse gases, or about 80 percent of total U.S. emissions. According to an Associated Press analysis of the data, 20 mostly coal-fired power plants in 15 states account for the top-releasing facilities. Gina McCarthy, the top air official at the EPA, said the database marked “a major milestone” in the agency’s work to address climate change. She said it would

help industry, states and the federal government identify ways to reduce greenhouse gases. The Obama administration plans to regulate emissions of heat-trapping gases under existing law. A proposed regulation to address pollution from new power plants could be released as early as this month. Eventually, the EPA will have to tackle facilities already in operation. The largest emitters will be the first in line. The largest greenhouse gas polluter in the nation in 2010, according to the EPA’s data, was the Scherer power plant in Juliette, Ga., owned by Southern Company. That coal-fired power plant reported releasing nearly 23 million metric tons of carbon dioxide, the chief greenhouse gas, in 2010. Two other power plants owned by Southern were the second- and third-largest polluters nationally: the Bowen plant in Cartersville, Ga., and the James H. Miller Jr. power plant in Quinton, Ala. The plants are some of the largest

coal-fired power plants in the country. American Electric Power, another large coal-fired power producer, has three power plants in the top 20. They are in Rockport, Ind., Cheshire, Ohio, and St. Albans, W. Va. “This is just another way to identify the largest coal-fired power plants in the country,” said AEP spokesman Pat Hemlepp. “We always assumed we would be No. 1 in greenhouse gas emissions or No. 2 behind Southern Co. AEP and Southern are the two largest consumers of coal.” Both companies are testing technology to capture carbon dioxide from power plants and pump it underground for storage. But to date, no one has proven that is possible for a commercial-sized power plant. The other states with highpolluting power plants are Texas, Michigan, Missouri, Montana, Pennsylvania, Arizona, Wyoming, North Carolina, Kansas and Kentucky. Refineries were the second-largest source of green-

house gas emissions, with 5.7 percent of the reported total. The top states in greenhouse gas emissions from power plants and from refineries were Texas, Pennsylvania, Florida, Ohio, and Indiana. Congress required industries to report their greenhouse gas emissions as part of a 2008 spending bill. Until now, the agency has estimated greenhouse gas emissions by industry sector. “The information is sure to make companies, localities and specific plants more conscious of their emissions profile and may lead some to lower emissions themselves,” said Paul Bledsoe, senior adviser at the Bipartisan Policy Center, a Washington think tank that works on energy and environmental issues. Environmental groups welcomed the release of the information Wednesday. “EPA has scored a touchdown for the public’s right to know about the nation’s largest industrial climate pollution sources,” said Paul Zalzal, staff attorney at Environmental Defense Fund.

tax on most small businesses. This will affect 191,000 Kansas tax filers. He said the proposal would provide a $425 tax cut on the median Kansas tax return of a married couple with one child filing jointly and income of $65,430. But his plan would also make permanent the 6.3 cents per dollar state sales tax, which was scheduled to fall to 5.7 cents per dollar on July 1, 2013. That was a temporary tax increase approved in 2010 to help the state budget weather the Great Recession. Democrats and some Republicans said they were concerned that Brownback’s proposed income tax cut would shift the tax burden to property taxes. “If property taxes rise, that hurts everyone,” said state Rep. Tom Sloan, R-Lawrence. Brownback’s tax proposal was the latest addition to the governor’s sweeping agenda in his second year in office. In his State of the State speech, he reviewed his other plans. They include replacing the public pension plan for new hires with a 401(k)-style savings plan, hiring private companies to manage Medicaid, pushing more responsibility for funding schools onto local taxpayers, and repeal of what he called the “use-itor-lose-it” water law.

Spending caps Brownback also pushed for a 2 percent cap on spending increases and devoting state revenues raised above that amount to more tax cuts. “This will get us even closer to the pro-growth states with no state income taxes, which are among the country’s strongest performers,” he said. But Morris said holding the state budget to a 2 percent increase would be difficult to achieve. Mandated spending for pensions and social service caseloads alone would top 2 percent, he said, and that is before working on budgets for education, public safety and other areas.

plan that moves some responsibility for funding schools from the state to the local level. “I cannot support an effort to push funding to the local level,” she said. Sally Cauble, a Republican from Liberal, said she was unsure whether the state needed a new school finance formula. Janet Waugh, a Democrat from Kansas City, said Brownback’s plan would have a negative effect on some of her school districts. Carolyn Campbell, a Democrat from Topeka, wanted the board to delay a

KANSAS GOV. SAM BROWNBACK GESTURES while noting the accomplishments of Native Americans in Kansas on Wednesday during the governor’s State of the State address. Brownback said his budget plan for the next fiscal year would produce an ending balance of $465 million, but some legislators said such a large ending balance is unnecessary when there are many unmet needs in the state. State Rep. Barbara Ballard, D-Lawrence, said cuts to schools and social services over the past several years need to be addressed now before they hurt the state’s future. “There is a price to pay for that,” Ballard said.

Democratic response Democrats, who are vastly outnumbered in the Legislature, on Wednesday offered an alternative agenda. “Kansas Democrats cannot support a tax cut that makes the gap between the rich and the middle class even wider,” said House Minority Leader Paul Davis of Lawrence. “We are particularly unwilling to support such a proposal while schools are limping along and other, more regressive taxes are driving Kansans into poverty,” Davis said. Democrats said they want to focus on creating jobs,

WICHITA — U.S. Rep. Mike Pompeo is using some of his campaign money to set up a website and online petition to promote the general aviation industry. The Kansas Republican was joined by Wichita leaders at a news conference Wednesday announcing his “America Flies” website. Visitors can sign a petition showing their support of the industry and share stories of why aviation is important to them. Dave Franson, executive

director of the Wichita Aero Club, says Wichita has lost some 13,000 aviation jobs in recent years and he wants to turn around those losses. Franson calls general aviation a lifeline for small towns. He says general aviation planes go to more than 5,000 airports, while commercial airlines only serve about 500 airports.

“It is our hope to start planning in a very detailed fashion with the help of some outside entities,” Massey said. “We need to find out what we want the library to be.” The library falls under the jurisdiction of the Eudora Township. Massey said that ultimately any project will have to involve support from township voters. “I have no doubt that to make this financially feasible we will have to have a serious discussion about the mill levy the township provides to the library,” Massey said. But exactly when voters DAVID KENSINGER, CHIEF OF STAFF for Gov. Sam may be asked to sign off on Brownback, talks with Rep.

ty building that could house the city’s fire and police departments are moving more quickly. A spokeswoman at Eudora City Hall said the council recently hired an architect to begin creating plans for the public safety building. Tuesday’s special meeting will be for council members and city leaders to give feedback to the architect. The public safety building would be on the southern half of the former school site, which is at the intersection of 10th and Main streets. The library is envisioned for the north end of the site. The city and the library already own the necessary property for the project. The school district divided up the property with the library and the city in exchange for the two groups helping pay for the approximately $200,000 in costs to demolish the deteriorating Eudora Community Learning Center building. — City reporter Chad Lawhorn can be reached at 832-6362.

charged with distributing methamphetamine. The Salina Journal reports that Sheriff Randy Axelson was charged Tuesday with nine felony counts of meth distribution. Axelson was arrested Dec. 30 and has been out of jail since posting $45,000 bond. Axelson’s lawyer, Kurt Kerns of Wichita, said Wednesday that Axelson has a “spotless record” and will plead not guilty to the charges. Axelson is accused of distributing meth from September through Dec. 21, at the Rooks County Fairgrounds and

within 1,000 feet of Stockton High School. Ellis County Attorney Thomas Drees has been appointed special prosecutor in the case. He said Axelson’s first appearance is scheduled for Jan. 30 in Hays. Axelson remains sheriff, but Rooks County Undersheriff Chad Sterling is running the department.

Why is the stoplight at Sixth and Maine not on a sensor? I’ve sat southbound at the intersection for over 90 seconds without another car coming before without the stoplight changing colors.

A:

Megan Gilliland, the city’s communications manager, provided this answer: The intersection is coordinated with other signals along Sixth Street; therefore, it must have the same cycle-length and stay green for the main street (regardless of the traffic) until the point in the cycle when the side street can be given a green.

Low risk of heart incidents found for marathoners By Malcolm Ritter Associated Press

NEW YORK — It’s dramatic news when a marathon runner collapses with no pulse. Now a big study finds such calamities are rare and usually due to a pre-existing heart problem. The study also found such incidents are increasing as more runners try to go the distance. “You hear about this more and more,” said Dr. Aaron Baggish, senior author of the study Baggish, who runs a program for athletes with heart issues at Massachusetts General Hospital, and co-authors present their analysis in today’s issue of the New England Journal of Medicine. The study covers 10.9 million runners who participated in marathons or half-marathons in the United States from 2000 to 2010. By scouring media reports and checking with medical staff of races, the researchers identified 59 cases of cardiac arrest, where a runner became unconscious with no pulse during the race or within an hour of finishing. Cardiac arrest is when the heart stops because of a heart attack, a rhythm problem or other disorder. Forty-two of the runners died. The overall figures translate to 1 cardiac arrest per 184,000 participants and 1 death per 259,000 participants, the researchers said. Those numbers are low compared to other athletic activities, as shown by prior

studies of deaths in college said.

Against business? GOP split on Romney’s practices By Tom Raum Associated Press

WASHINGTON — What gives? Some of Mitt Romney’s rivals are waging a fierce attack that you’d never think would come from the mouths of Republicans who claim Ronald Reagan as their hero. They’re blasting the GOP front-runner for aggressive, wealthcreating business tactics. The criticism, mostly from former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and Texas Gov. Rick Perry, didn’t seem to matter much in New Hampshire, where Romney claimed a comfortable primary victory. Gingrich was fourth and Perry was sixth. But the sniping may have more resonance in next-in-line South Carolina, which is far more economically depressed, and in Florida. Both states are struggling with high joblessness and weak housing markets. South Carolina’s primary is Jan. 21, Florida’s is Jan. 31. Trying to tap into populist sentiment, Gingrich and Perry are accusing Romney of being a fat-cat venture capitalist during his days running the private equity firm Bain

We understood for a long time that the Obama people would come after free enterprise. We’re a little surprised to see Newt Gingrich as the first witness for the prosecution.” — GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney Capital, laying off workers as he restructured companies and filled his own pockets. A group backing Gingrich is airing TV ads in South Carolina showing distraught people who say they lost their jobs to Bain’s restructuring practices while Romney was at the helm. Jon Huntsman, a former Utah governor and ambassador to China, at first joined Gingrich and Perry in the attacks on Romney. But on Wednesday after his thirdplace finish in New Hampshire, Huntsman backed away in part from such criticism while continuing to assail Romney’s four years as Massachusetts governor.

The Bain Capital attacks are nearly identical to criticism once leveled at Romney by one of the nation’s bestknown Democrats, Ted Kennedy, when Romney tried to claim Kennedy’s Massachusetts Senate seat in 1994. Whether that tactic helped or not, Kennedy, who died in 2009, did hold on to his seat. To hear such accusations now from Republicans — historically the party of business and free enterprise — is particularly notable. “It’s like watching dogs walk on their hind feet. It’s not impossible, but it certainly looks odd when you see it,” said economist Bruce Bartlett, who worked in the Republican administrations of Reagan and George H.W. Bush. “I don’t think they seriously believe there is anything wrong with what Romney did. I just think that they’re trying to use any card that they can find in the deck that might give them an edge. It’s simple expediency.” Romney has shrugged off the fusillade. “We understood for a long time that the Obama people would come after free enter-

prise,” he told reporters as he flew from New Hampshire to South Carolina on Wednesday. “We’re a little surprised to see Newt Gingrich as the first witness for the prosecution.” Romney has repeatedly touted his business career as giving him the right credentials for dealing with a tough economy and the know-how to produce jobs. However, in the process of restructuring companies to make them more profitable, many workers indeed were laid off. The criticism from fellow Republicans now threatens to undercut Romney’s central argument that his private-sector experience best positions him to defeat Democratic President Barack Obama in the fall. Gingrich, mounting the fiercest attacks, denies he’s arguing against capitalism. “I am totally for capitalism. ... I do draw a distinction between (it) and looting a company,” says the former House speaker. He also asks, “Is capitalism really about the ability of a handful of rich people to manipulate the lives of thousands of other people and walk off with the money?”

More planets than stars found in galaxy By Seth Borenstein Associated Press

WASHINGTON — The more astronomers look for other worlds, the more they find that it’s a crowded and crazy cosmos. They think planets easily outnumber stars in our galaxy and they’re even finding them in the strangest of places. And they’ve only begun to count. Three studies released Wednesday, in the journal Nature and at the American Astronomical Society’s conference in Austin, Texas, demonstrate an extrasolar real estate boom. One study shows that in our Milky Way, most stars have planets. And since there are a lot of stars in our galaxy — about 100 billion — that means a lot of planets. “We’re finding an exciting potpourri of things we didn’t even think could exist,” said Harvard University astronomer Lisa Kaltenegger, including planets that mirror “Star Wars” Luke Skywalker’s home planet with twin suns and a mini-star system with a dwarf sun and shrunken planets. “We’re awash in planets where 17 years ago we weren’t even sure there were planets” outside our solar system, said Kaltenegger, who wasn’t involved in the new research. Astronomers are finding other worlds using three different techniques and peering through telescopes in space and on the ground. Confirmed planets outside our solar system, called exoplanets, now number well over 700, still-to-be-confirmed ones are in the thousands. NASA’s new Kepler planet-hunting telescope in space is discovering exoplanets that are in a zone friendly to

Blast kills Iran nuclear expert amid ‘covert war’ U.S. denies having role in slaying

By Ali Akbar Dareini and Brian Murphy Associated Press

TEHRAN, IRAN — It seemed a clockwork killing: Motorcycle riders flashed by and attached a magnetic bomb onto a car carrying a nuclear scientist working at Iran’s main uranium enrichment facility. By the time the blast tore apart the silver Peugeot, the bike was blocks away, weaving through Tehran traffic after what Iran calls the latest strike in an escalating covert war. The attack, which instantly killed the scientist and fatally wounded his driver on Wednesday, was at least the fourth targeted hit against a member of Iran’s nuclear brain trust in two years. Tehran quickly blamed Israelilinked agents backed by the U.S. and Britain. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton denied any U.S. role in the slaying, and the Obama administration condemned the attack. However, provocative hints from Jerusalem reinforced the perception of an organized and clandestine campaign to set back Iran’s nuclear ambitions. The day before the attack, Israeli military chief Lt. Gen. Benny Gantz was quoted as telling a parliamentary panel that 2012 would be a “critical

THIS 2011 HANDOUT PHOTO SHOWS THE MILKY WAY above the La Silla Observatory in Chile. The more distant telescope in the photo was used to survey planets in our galaxy using a time consuming technique. The results indicate that on average, there are 1.6 larger planets per star in our solar system, but that’s mostly looking at planets that are far from their star. Other methods look more on close-in planets and putting those techniques together, astronomers think that means stars in the Milky Way probably average well over two planets. life and detecting planets as small as Earth or even tinier. That’s moving the field of looking for some kind of life outside Earth from science fiction toward just plain science. One study in Nature this week figures that the Milky Way averages at least 1.6 large planets per star. And that is likely a dramatic underestimate. That study is based on only one intricate and timeconsuming method of planet hunting that uses several South American, African and Australian telescopes. Astronomers look for increases in brightness of distant stars that indicate planets between Earth and that pulsating star. That technique usually finds

only bigger planets and is good at finding those further away from their stars, sort of like our Saturn or Uranus. Kepler and a different ground-based telescope technique are finding planets closer to their stars. Putting those methods together, the number of worlds in our galaxy is probably much closer to two or more planets per star, said the Nature study author Arnaud Cassan of the Astrophysical Institute in Paris. Dan Werthimer, chief scientist at the University of California Berkeley’s search for extraterrestrial intelligence program and who wasn’t part of the studies, was thrilled: “It’s great to know that there are planets

out there that we can point our telescopes at.” Kepler also found three rocky planets — tinier than Earth — that are circling a dwarf star that itself is only a bit bigger than Jupiter. They are so close to their small star that they are too hot for life. “It’s like you took your shrink ray gun and you set it to seven times smaller and zap the planetary system,” said California Institute of Technology astronomer John Johnson, co-author of the study presented Wednesday at the astronomy conference. Because it is so hard to see these size planets, they must be pretty plentiful, Johnson said. “It’s kind of like cockroaches. If you see one, then there are dozens hiding.”

Tiny frog claimed as world’s smallest vertebrate By Janet McConnaughey Associated Press

NEW ORLEANS — A frog that can perch on the tip of your pinkie with room to spare has been claimed as the world’s smallest vertebrate species, out-tinying a fish that got the title in 2006. But the discoverer of another weensy fish disputes the claim. A tempest in a thimble, some might say. An article Wednesday in the journal PLoS One named Paedophryne amauensis (pee-doh-FRY-nee AM-OWen-sis) as the world’s smallest animal with a spine. The adult frogs are about three-tenths of an inch long, and a millimeter or so smaller than a carp found on the Indonesian island of Sumatra. The frogs are so small that Louisiana State University herpetologist and environmental biologist Christopher Austin had to enlarge closeup photos to describe them. But the males of a species

The species was recognized Wednesday as the world’s smallest vertebrate. of deep-sea anglerfish are about 2 mm smaller, said University of Washington ichthyologist Theodore Pietsch, who described them in 2006. The males don’t have stomachs and live as parasites on 1.8-inch-long females. Austin discovered the tiny frogs — along with another

small frog species — in August 2009 while on a trip to Papua New Guinea to study the extreme diversity of the island’s wildlife. He said he knew about the anglerfish but felt that average species size made more sense for comparison. Steven J. Beaupre, a University of Arkansas scientist

and president-elect of the American Society of Ichthyologists and Herpetologists, said many vertebrates have males and females of very different sizes, “so it is reasonable that the world’s smallest vertebrate may end up being either the males or the females of some specific fish or amphibian species.” He said he doesn’t pay attention to “tiniest” reports, but the frogs themselves are a significant discovery. “The discovery of two new frog species comes as great news against the background of more prevalent accounts of tropical amphibian extinction,” he wrote in an email. Knowing about such tiny creatures and their ecology, he said, helps scientists “better understand the advantages and disadvantages of extreme small size and how such extremes evolve. Fundamentally, these tiny vertebrates provide a window on the principles that constrain animal design.”

year” for Iran — in part because of “things that happen to it unnaturally.” The blast killed Mostafa Ahmadi Roshan, a chemistry expert and a director of the Natanz uranium enrichment facility, the centerpiece of Iran’s expanding program to make nuclear fuel. Roshan, 32, had planned to attend a memorial later Wednesday for another nuclear researcher who was killed in a similar pinpoint blast two years ago, Iranian media said. “A heinous act,” said Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization of Wednesday’s bombing. It added a tone of defiance. “We will continue our (nuclear) path without any doubt. ... Our path is irreversible,” said the statement carried on state television. The state news agency IRNA said Roshan had “organizational links” to Iran’s nuclear agency, which suggests a direct role in key aspects of the program. Another news agency, the semiofficial Mehr, said Roshan had been interviewed by inspectors from the U.N. nuclear watchdog agency, which Iran has accused of placing its scientists in peril by including their names in public reports. Natanz, in central Iran, is the country’s main enrichment site. Officials said this week they were expanding some operations to an underground site south of Tehran with more advanced equipment.

Brown winter means more green for cities By Patrick Condon Associated Press

ST. PAUL, MINN. — The warm, brown winter that has disappointed snow lovers in much of the U.S. has put more green in the pockets of state and local governments that had their budgets busted last year by the high cost of keeping streets and highways clear. Cities that normally spend millions on salt, sand and snowplows are happily saving the money for other purposes. Some are even taking advantage of the mild weather to carry on with outdoor projects that would usually have to wait until spring. “There’s a sigh of relief,” said Chris Sagsveen, who manages road and bridge operations in Hennepin County, Minnesota’s most populous because it includes Minneapolis. In 2011, his department spent its entire snow-removal budget for the year by the end of March. He dreaded the potential for another fearsome winter. But the county barely spent a penny in the final months of 2011. So far this year, it hasn’t tapped the snow budget once. For virtually the entire season, cold air has been bottled up over Canada. La Nina, the cooling of the equatorial Pacific Ocean that affects weather worldwide, has nudged the jet stream farther north. And air pressure over the northern Atlantic has steered storm systems away from the East Coast. In Minnesota and North Dakota, crews have parked their snowplows and are patching roads and highways instead. Chicago spent just $500,000 on plowing in December, down from $6 million a year earlier. In Buffalo, N.Y., public works overtime is down by 25 percent, and

the city has saved more than $300,000 on salt. Syracuse, N.Y., one of New York’s snowiest cities, has had 13 inches this winter compared to an unusually heavy 77 inches by this time last year. Public Works Commissioner Pete O’Connor said he’s saved $500,000 in salt, overtime and fuel. “This is Mother Nature’s way and a lot of praying on my part,” O’Connor said. Instead of plowing, his crews are out collecting discarded Christmas trees, which in some years don’t emerge from snow banks until spring. In St. Paul, where a few meager snowfalls have melted within days, the temperature hit a record 52 on Tuesday — a reading more appropriate for April. The story is the same across most of the country. In Michigan’s Oakland County, north of Detroit, officials hope the savings will let them spend more on new equipment and gravel to fill in roads. At the Minnesota Department of Transportation, machine-maintenance costs are plunging because plows have barely been used. The savings extend beyond government budgets to family households. Jim Cusick, a state employee in St. Paul, has been able to run his radiators less and catch up on an out-of-control home heating bill aggravated by the big, drafty old house where he lives with five of his six kids. By last winter, Cusick said, he owed his utility more than $3,000 in back payments. As of this month, he said, his negative balance is down to $650. “It’s a bummer for the kids. They miss the skating and stuff. But if winter stays mild, life will be better,” Cusick said.

High court keeps judges out of church job disputes Putting fresh By Jesse J. Holland Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Religious workers can’t sue for job discrimination, the Supreme Court ruled Wednesday, saying for the first time that churches — not courts — are the best judges of whether clergy and other religious employees should be fired or hired. But the high court tempered its decision bolstering the constitutional separation of church and state by refusing to give a detailed description of what constitutes a religious employee, which left an untold number of workers at churches, synagogues and other religious organizations still in limbo over whether government antidiscrimination laws protect them in job bias disputes. It was, nevertheless, the first time the high court has acknowledged the existence of a so-called “ministerial exception” to anti-discrimination laws — a doctrine developed in lower court rulings. This doctrine says the First Amendment’s guarantee of freedom of religion shields churches and their operations from the reach of such

protective laws when the issue involves religious employees of these institutions. “The interest of society in the enforcement of employment discrimination statutes is undoubtedly important,” Chief Justice John Roberts said in a unanimous opinion. “But so COURTS too is the interest of religious groups in choosing who will preach their beliefs, teach their faith and carry out their mission.” Douglass Laycock, who argued the case for a church school that fired a teacher for bringing about an employment discrimination lawsuit against it, called it a “huge win for religious liberty.” “The court has unanimously confirmed the right of churches to select their own ministers and religious leaders,” he said. The court’s recognition of the ministerial exception likely ends any chance members of the clergy and church leaders have to sue churches and other religious organizations for job discrimination, experts say. The U.S. Census

identified 429,000 Americans as members of the clergy in 2010. “Clergy who are fired for reasons unrelated to matters of theology — no matter how capricious or venal those reasons may be — have just had the courthouse door slammed in their faces,” said Rev. Barry W. Lynn, executive director of Americans United. But there need to be future court rulings to spell out exactly which other church employees fall under this ruling, like teachers and instructors at religious schools. Some teachers will and some teachers won’t, said Rick Garnett, associate dean and professor of law at Notre Dame Law School. “There are going to be some employee relationships involving religious institutions that are not religious at all, and those are not going to be covered” by the court’s ruling, Garnett said. “But there are going to be some that are religious, even if they are not ordained clergy, and they are going to be covered. The way the court put it was that some employees are essentially involved in the religious mission of the institution and those employees are covered.”

The final weeks of 2011 were among the economy’s strongest as Americans shopped and traveled more, ending the year with a shot of optimism for 2012. That’s the bright picture the Federal Reserve sketched in a survey released Wednesday. It said all but one of its 12 banking districts experienced some growth from late November through the end of the year. Some sectors of the economy, notably housing, remain weak, the Fed said. But consumers spent more freely. Factories made more goods. Americans stepped up travel. And the auto industry enjoyed its best stretch of the year. Economists noted greater confidence in the tone of the report. For example, the central bank described auto manufacturing as “vibrant” in several districts. Consumer spending was deemed “robust” in the Dallas region. “It has been quite a while since we have seen the Fed use words like vibrant and robust to describe any part of the economy,” said Brian Bethune, an economics professor at Amherst College. “I think one of the things driving the stronger language is that things are better than the Fed had been expecting.”

Want good customer service? Get online By Candice Choi Associated Press

NEW YORK — Consumers are demanding better service in unprecedented ways. In the past several months, public outrage has helped beat back efforts by Bank of America, Netflix and Verizon to raise fees or significantly alter services. The victories come at a time when money is tight all around and consumers are tapping into social media to air their frustrations with likeminded individuals. “In the past people would be angry, but they’d be all over the country talking to their neighbors,” said Kit Yarrow a professor of consumer psychology at Golden Gate University. “Now they can connect online and they have power.” For example, petitions on Change.org were instrumental in convincing Bank of America and Verizon to drop plans for new fees. “Bank Transfer Day,” which sprang to life after Bank of America’s announcement, called on Facebook supporters to move their money to a credit union or community bank. Not every issue demands a mass call to action. But consumers basking in their newfound sense of empowerment should keep their expectations high going into 2012. Here are some strategies for making sure you get the service you deserve.

Reach out and tweet You don’t have to be Alec Baldwin to have your complaints heard on Twitter. Most major companies have a social media presence by now. And since they don’t want negative mentions turning up in search results, any reasonable question or complaint is likely to get a response. Even if you don’t hear back from anyone, it’s likely that companies are taking note of any comments about them. At JetBlue, for example, a few customers recently tweeted about a crowded gate that only had one agent. That triggered the airline’s social media team to contact staff at the airport to find out if any additional agents were available to help out, said Morgan Johnston, JetBlue’s social media strategist. But he noted that Twitter is more commonly used to request time-sensitive information that can be conveyed in 140 characters — such as connecting flight or gate numbers.

Toll roadblock The Kansas Department of Transportation is right to set the idea of tolls aside and focus on completing the South Lawrence Trafficway.

I

t’s good news that Kansas Department of Transportation officials have decided against trying to charge tolls on any portion of the completed South Lawrence Trafficway. There was no way to charge the tolls that wouldn’t place an unfair burden on local motorists who most often travel on only a small section of the bypass. Even after the SLT is completed, the most common usage by local motorists will be to travel from somewhere in the middle of the bypass to either the west or east end, where they can connect with the Kansas Turnpike or Kansas Highway 10. KDOT officials had proposed using revenue from the tolls to fund a new SLT interchange at Bob Billings Parkway. Although some Lawrence residents are concerned about the additional traffic that would flow onto Bob Billings and 15th Street, an interchange at that location would provide an important access point to Kansas University and business developments in west Lawrence. That interchange probably is needed, but KDOT is doing the right thing by keeping its primary focus on the completion of the eastern leg of the SLT. A recent KDOT survey showed that tolls would at least minimally reduce the number of motorists who would use the trafficway instead of existing city streets, such as 23rd Street. Changing the estimates or how much traffic the SLT would attract would require KDOT to go through the cumbersome process of drafting a new environmental impact statement, which would guarantee additional delays in a project that the state hopes to begin construction on by fall of 2013. State funds have been committed to complete the SLT, and federal permits have been issued for the project. The permits were upheld in federal court, but SLT opponents are appealing that decision, and oral hearings in that case are scheduled for next week in the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver. If the appeals court upholds the lower court decision, KDOT should be ready to move ahead on this project without any additional roadblocks, such as the need for a new EIS statement. The impact that tolls would have had on how many people use a completed SLT is just one reason KDOT should dismiss the toll idea — but it is reason enough. Other funding for a new interchange at Bob Billings Parkway can be identified later. The goal now is finish this long-overdue road.

U.S.-Taliban diplomacy is intriguing WASHINGTON — For some reallife intrigue at the start of this new year, take a look at the secret diplomacy that’s under way between the United States and the Taliban. Most observers are skeptical the process will produce any breakthroughs, but it’s interesting that the talks are taking place at all. The path toward negotiations was charted publicly last Feb. 18, when Secretary of State Hillary Clinton laid out a framework for a political settlement of the Afghanistan War. Though it wasn’t widely noticed, she dropped previous U.S. preconditions for Taliban participation, such as renouncing al-Qaida and backing the Afghan constitution. These were termed “necessary outcomes” of negotiations, rather than prior requirements. U.S. and Taliban representatives had already met in secret in Germany when Clinton gave that speech, and they have met repeatedly since then, mostly in Germany and Qatar, for a total of about a half-dozen sessions. The next step is for the Taliban to open an official office in Qatar and begin discussions with the Afghan government. The U.S. representative at these talks has usually been Marc Grossman, who took over the post of special representative for Afghanistan after the death of Richard Holbrooke. A retired diplomat with the quiet, self-effacing manner of a George Smiley, Grossman has been the opposite of the gregarious Holbrooke, but that has probably been helpful with a skittish ad-

versary. The Taliban representative has been Tayeb al-Agha, an aide to Mohammad Omar, the Taliban leader. Agha is a narrowfaced, bearded man who speaks good English and is said to conduct himself professionally. After stories by me and others about his role last May, Agha was said to have disappeared — but that turns out to have been a cover story. In fact, he continued meeting with U.S. officials through the summer and fall, with the most recent session taking place in October. Agha emerged as a credible Taliban emissary after secret meetings with German govern-

ment officials in 2010, joined by American officials that November in Munich. The pace of contacts stepped up after Grossman was appointed last February. Grossman’s first challenge was to establish that Agha really represents the Taliban leadership. So tests were devised to establish his bona fides. The U.S. would ask Agha, say, to post a notice on an official Taliban website — and provide the text in advance. By last summer, the U.S. concluded Agha was the real thing. The meetings with Agha so far have been what diplomats call “confidence-building measures.” That process includes the opening of the Qatar office — and the transfer to Doha of about five Taliban prisoners from Guantanamo, whom the Qatari government has promised to hold under “house arrest.” The hope was to announce the Qatar office at an international meeting in Bonn on Dec. 5. But Afghan President Hamid Karzai balked at the last minute, fearing that he didn’t have a consensus back home for negotiation. And it’s true enough that many Afghans are wary of any deal with the Pashtun insurgent group. But details began leaking in Kabul, and after the Taliban said on Jan. 3 that they were ready to open the Qatar office, Karzai announced his support the next day. The Taliban are supposed to make statements soon rejecting international terrorism and sup-

porting a political process in Afghanistan — first steps toward eventual renunciation of al-Qaida and support for the Afghan constitution. The Taliban have also agreed that the Qatar office won’t be used for recruiting or propaganda. It was the Taliban who requested Qatar as the hub, countering U.S. and Afghan proposals of Turkey or Saudi Arabia. What about Pakistan’s role in this delicate process? Well, it hasn’t stopped Agha’s contacts on behalf of the Taliban. And the head of Pakistani intelligence, Lt. Gen. Ahmed Shuja Pasha, personally delivered Ibrahim Haqqani, a son of the chief of a fearsome Taliban group known as the “Haqqani network,” to a meeting in August with a U.S. official in the United Arab Emirates. That meeting went nowhere, and it was followed by renewed attacks on U.S. targets by Haqqani operatives who, according to U.S. officials, continue to receive funding, intelligence and other assistance from Pakistani intelligence. If the Qatar office is indeed opened, U.S. officials hope the Karzai government and the Taliban will exchange confidencebuilding measures of their own — say a Taliban rejection of suicide bombings in return for government safe passage. It’s a long shot, but it’s also true that all wars end eventually — starting with a process something like this one.

From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for Jan. 12, 1912: “Yesterday morning the pumps at the Water Station began to pump river YEARS water into the basins at the pumping AGO plant and today the water was turned IN 1912 into the city mains. Now Lawrence has adopted the slogan, ‘Boil the water.’ The citizens have been advised that the river water is unfit for use unless boiled, but it was the only recourse open to the Water Company, their wells have gone dry and there is no other place for them to get water except from the river. ” — Compiled by Sarah St. John

Change overtaking bigoted views We gather here today to parse the meaning of “boo.” Not “boo” as in the greeting of ghosts and goblins but, rather, “boo” as in the chorus that drowned the bigot Rick Santorum last week after he defended his opposition to gay marriage before an audience of college students in Concord, N.H. Santorum took the same header into non sequitur and illogic that gay marriage opponents often take, i.e., if we legalize this, then we must also legalize polygamy. It is a line of “thinking” that conveniently ignores a glaring fact. Namely, that there is not and never has been a large culture of people who felt biologically driven toward polygamous behavior, much less who seek social sanction for it. Santorum raises a classic straw man argument, tries to win the debate by stoking fear of what has not and will not happen. And as you watched him washed from the podium by that song of opprobrium (i.e., “boo”), there was to it a certain sense of last stand, last ditch, last bitter dregs of resistance before the coming of a change that now feels inevitable as the dawn. The former senator and would-be president tried to minimize the question by noting the youth of his questioners — “I’m surprised I got a gay marriage question at a college crowd,” he quipped. “Really, that’s a shock to me.” — but in so doing, he manages to simultaneously make and miss the point. There is an absolute historical pattern to the bigotry of social

conservatives. They rally using terms of moral Armageddon against the freedoms sought by some despised or condescended to Other, whether that be a woman wanting to work outside the home, a Jew seeking to join the country club, an AfricanAmerican trying to get home on a city bus. Then the freedoms are won, and people — even socially conservative ones — realize the world kept spinning after all. Armageddon did not come. Only change. The point is that change is usually spearheaded by the young. They are the ones who are quickest and most likely to reject lame arguments built of straw and fear. So while Santorum tries to laugh

off the youth of those pressing him about gay marriage, he might be well advised to ponder the deeper implications thereof. A 2010 survey by the Pew Research Center found support for marriage equality on the rise among all age groups, but noted that the support is highest among the young. Among those born after 1980, 53 percent approve (as opposed to 39 percent who do not). Santorum seems to believe the children will grow out of their foolishness. Actually, the truth is probably closer to what the songwriter said: “I believe the children are our future.” Consider that prominent conservative blogger Meghan McCain, who is not yet 30, dubbed Santorum’s views “dated” and “gross.” The trend lines are clear. As children, even children of the right, now find it hard to fathom there was ever a time women could not work outside the home or Jews were banned from the country club, so will there come a day when they will marvel that once upon a time, gay people could not be married. The future is coming and not all the frothing and spewing of people like the bigot Santorum can deter it. Or, to put that another way: Boo. — Leonard Pitts Jr., winner of the 2004 Pulitzer Prize for commentary, is a columnist for the Miami Herald.

To the editor: Being from New Jersey, I am adjusted to reading of strange occurrences in town hall finances. That said, this paper, on Jan. 4, tells us the town fathers have given preliminary approval to 10 payments of $28,000 each as an “incentive” to the developers of the seven-story building at Ninth and New Hampshire. As the “$10 million” building is up, and looks ready for occupancy, I do not see where the incentive applies. Will they demolish it if they do not receive the money? By the developers’ admission, they did not even ask for the money until AFTER the beginning of construction! To claim that this is for “everything from street lights to sidewalks” is insulting to the taxpayers’ intelligence. Do they really expect us to believe that the developers would not put things like new lights and sidewalks in their plans? If the construction was estimated at that $10 million, would you like us to believe that this $280K over 10 years would have changed their minds? Development is good, but times are tough, and giving away taxpayer money after the fact is certainly not businesslike H Millard Klein, Lawrence

Milestone mauling Self gets 250th KU win

Robinson dominates atypically

By Gary Bedore gbedore@ljworld.com

LUBBOCK, TEXAS — Nobody dumped a bucket of Gatorade on Kansas University basketball coach Bill Self late Wednesday night at Texas Tech’s United Spirit Arena. His 250th career coaching victory in eight-plus seasons at KU went largely unnoticed. In fact, the Jayhawk players and their boss were unaware of the milestone until well after the game — a decisive 81-46 victory over Tech. “Pipe just Q For more told me that,” on Kansas’ Self said of rarout of dio color anTexas Tech, nouncer Chris including a Piper, who inphoto gallery, formed Self he The Keegan had improved Ratings, meshis KU record sage boards to 250 victoand more, ries against 49 go to defeats. OverKUSports.com all, he’s 457-154 in 19 seasons at KU, Illinois, Tulsa and Oral Roberts. “I’m sure most of our fans think we should have about 265, which I do too, to be honest with you,” Self added, laughing. “Two hundred fifty in 8 1/2 years ... that’s not a bad number. Hopefully we can continue to improve on that. “Not at all, that means absolutely nothing not only to me, my family, anybody who supports Kansas basketball. That is a totally irrelevant number,” he added, asked if he pays attention to milestone victories. Self’s 250th victory turned out to be the most lopsided road win overall in the Self era and also in Big 12 road games. The 35-point victory surpassed a 32-point win at Temple on Jan. 2, 2010. It bettered a 29-point victory at Colorado on Feb, 14, 2007. “When Naadir Tharpe (nine points, seven minutes) is throwing in threes over outstretched hands — he looked good, though; he can shoot, he just hasn’t had the chance — it got out of control,” Self said of the final margin. “They missed open

THE JAYHAWKS AND RED RAIDERS WAIT FOR A SHOT by Travis Releford (24) to drop during the second half. Kansas beat Please see KANSAS, page 4B Texas Tech, 81-46, on Wednesday in Lubbock, Texas.

LUBBOCK, TEXAS — Thomas Robinson’s national Player of the Year tour hit a pair of speed bumps that limited his time on the United Spirit Arena floor to 19 minutes Wednesday night. Foul trouble kept Robinson to nine first-half minutes, and a lopsided scoreboard prevented him from logging more than 10 minutes in the second half of Kansas University’s 81-46 domination of young Texas Tech, the favorite to reside in last place all year in the Big 12. Robinson plowed through the bumps and stayed right on course as the leading candidate for national honors. Playing not quite half the time, Robinson still created his usual barrage of highlights and typical line in the box score (19 points, 12 rebounds). And yet again, he left us asking ourselves, “Did I just see that?” and “How much better is this guy going to get?” Yes, we did just see him running the point in transition, tossing a spontaneous lob pass to guard Elijah Johnson, who soared to heights seldom reached by guards and flushed it with his right hand. Yes, we did just see Robinson swish a three from well behind the top of the key. He catches everything thrown to him and is right at the rim for nearly every opponent’s missed shot, giving nobody else a prayer at the rebound. And on this night, he ran the floor hard, at times beating the entire team down the floor. An immovable force in the post, Robinson blends strength and quickness and a variety of moves to get where he wants to go and has grown so much in sensing when it’s time to bust a scoring move and when it’s time to keep the ball moving. This season, he has added guard skills, handling the ball, feeding the ball inside and Please see KEEGAN, page 4B

Davis saves best for last to ensure win By Matt Tait mtait@ljworld.com

During the first and second halves of Wednesday’s battle with Iowa State at Allen Fieldhouse, Kansas University junior Carolyn Davis played just 22 minutes because of foul trouble. Looks like she was just saving herself for crunch time. Behind 12 overtime points from their leading scorer, who finished with 21, the Jayhawks held off the Cyclones, 74-67 in double OT, to improve to 13-2 overall and 2-1 in the Big 12. “We ran everything inside to her,” KU coach Bonnie Henrickson said of Davis’ dominance in the final 10 minutes. Good idea. Davis, who played just 32 of 50 minutes on the night, including all but a few seconds of the

PLAYERS ON THE KU BENCH GET UP to cheer a second-half run. two OTs, was 3-for-5 from the floor and 6-for-7 from the freethrow line during the two extra periods. “Once it came down to it, I knew I had to take over the

game,” a relieved Davis said. “I’ve never had to play that long with four fouls, but I felt good, I felt confident, and I knew I wasn’t going to foul.” Davis picked up her fourth

foul with 11:15 to play in regulation. About a minute earlier, senior forward Aishah Sutherland picked up her fourth on an offensive foul, and the Jayhawks were forced to face one of the Big 12’s most dominant post teams without their top two post players for long spurts. Luckily, sophomore forward Tania Jackson was up to the task of filling in for both of them. “She was huge,” Henrickson said. In 30 minutes, Jackson scored 11 points and continually played tough post defense on Iowa State’s Anna Prins (19 points in 33 minutes) and Chelsea PopJohn Young/Journal-World Photos pens (24 points in 43 minutes).

Baylor QB Griffin makes it official, announces he’s headed to NFL WACO, TEXAS — When Robert Griffin III arrived at Baylor four years ago with new coach Art Briles, the Bears had never even had a winning season in the Big 12. Standing in the confetti celebration last month after the Bears won their first bowl game in nearly two decades for a 10-win season, the exciting dual-threat quarterback knew in his gut it was time to move on to the next level. Griffin made it official Wednesday, announcing he would skip his senior season to enter the NFL Draft after a college career in which he set or tied 54 school records in 41 games. Griffin It was a month and a day after RG3 became the first Baylor player to win college football’s highest individual honor. “Obviously you want to leave something better than you found it,� Griffin said. “I can say we’ve done that.� It was nearly 21⠄2 minutes after Griffin started talking during his campus news conference that he finally said he was going to the NFL. But, like he said, he has never been good at goodbyes. “It’s see you later,� he said. His public announcement came right after meeting with teammates to inform them of the decision, and Griffin said he broke down in tears after telling them. Griffin had told Briles of his decision when they spoke Tuesday, following up on a conversation from the previous day.

“Neither of us broke down, surprisingly,� said Griffin, though Briles quickly added with a smile, “Not on the outside.� Stanford’s Andrew Luck, the Heisman runner-up, and Griffin are likely to be the first two quarterbacks drafted in April.

Clarkson to sing anthem A person familiar with Super Bowl entertainment plans says Kelly Clarkson will sing the national anthem before the NFL championship game at Indianapolis on Feb. 5.

Colts hire Eagles executive INDIANAPOLIS — The Indianapolis Colts have hired Eagles executive Ryan Grigson

KANSAS FOOTBALL

Former D-coordinator Bowen to coach special teams for Weis By Matt Tait mtait@ljworld.com

he starred as a defensive back from 1992-93. During his 12 seasons as a KU assistant, the Jayhawks won 66 games and were 3-1 in four bowl appearances. Bowen, who has strong recruiting ties in Dallas, also will coach a defensive position that has not yet been determined. KU is still searching for a defensive coordinator, and his qualifications likely will determine what position Bowen will coach. Also on Wednesday, KU announced the addition of Jeff Blasko, a native of Pittsburgh who comes to KU after spending a season working under Weis at the University of Florida. Blasko, who was named UF’s interim quarterbacks coach after Weis’ departure, will coach tight ends and serve as assistant specialteams coordinator at Kansas. Prior to his season at UF, Blasko spent three seasons at Akron as a graduate assistant working with the offense and helping with recruiting. He was the Zips’ graduate assistant from 2008-09 and also worked the 2010 season under current KU recruiting coordinator/wide receivers coach Rob Ianello.

Two years after leaving, Clint Bowen is coming home. Bowen, the former Kansas University player and assistant coach who left Lawrence after Mark Mangino’s forced resignation following the 2009 season, has been named KU’s new specialteams coach, the university announced Wednesday. A f t e r leaving KU, where he served as co-defensive coordinator during the Jayhawks’ O r a n g e Bowen Bowl season and was promoted to defensive coordinator for 2008 and 2009, Bowen spent one season as the DC at Western Kentucky and held the same position this season at North Texas. Prior to becoming a defensive coordinator, Bowen coached just about everything imaginable at KU, including special teams. From 1998-2006, he coached running backs, tight ends and safeties and was KU’s special-teams coordinator from 2001-05. Grimes to Arkansas State A native of Lawrence, Former Auburn assistant Bowen has talked often about Gus Malzahn did not wind his fondness for KU, where up in Lawrence, but he is

now connected to the Kansas football program in another way. Malzahn, now the head coach at Arkansas State, recently announced the hiring of J.B. Grimes as his offensiveline coach. Grimes, a native of Clarendon, Ark., coached the O-line at KU for two seasons under Turner Gill. He is a 29year coaching veteran, and his previous stops include Arkansas, Virginia Tech, Texas A&M, East Carolina and Mississippi State.

Crawley concerned KU fans aren’t the only ones eager to find out the identity of the Jayhawks’ new defensive coordinator. Kenneth Crawley, a fourstar cornerback from Washington D.C.’s Woodson High, said on Twitter earlier this week that he was considering moving his visit back a week because the Jayhawks still didn’t have a defensive coordinator and were missing some key members of their defensive staff. Crawley, 6-foot-1, 170 pounds, was expected to visit KU sometime this week, but now may be looking to schedule his visit for the weekend of Jan. 28. According to Rivals.com, Crawley is the No. 2-ranked cornerback in Maryland and the 21st-ranked player at his position overall. He recently backed out of an

oral commitment to Tennessee and opened up his recruitment. Crawley also plans to visit Michigan State and Maryland and has offers from 22 other BCS schools, including Oklahoma State and Texas Tech, of the Big 12.

Juco RB to visit KU Taylor Cox, a 5-11, 205-pound tailback from College of the Siskiyous in Weed, Calif., is expected to visit KU this weekend. Cox, an All-American selection following the 2011 season, ran for 1,507 yards and 14 touchdowns in 10 games this season. Originally from Mill Creek, Wash., Cox owns the school record for rushing yards in a game (326), rushing yards in a career (2,744) and touchdowns in a career (31). Newly named wide-receivers coach and recruiting coordinator Ianello has been the lead man for Cox, and it appears he already has made quite an impression. “He said they are really excited to have me in for a visit,” Cox said of Ianello in an interview with JayhawkSlant. com. “I am ready to get in there and meet them. I want to find a place I feel comfortable. I want to find a place I can get playing time and have an impact on winning games. I want to be around positive people.”

KANSAS UNIVERSITY GUARD ANGEL GOODRICH SHOOTS the three-pointer that sent the game into double overtime against Iowa State on Wednesday at Allen Fieldhouse. The Jayhawks prevailed, 74-67.

KU women CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1B

Jayhawks alive long enough for junior guard Angel Goodrich to deliver a little magic. After ripping off a 17-5 during the final nine minutes of regulation to send the game into overtime, the Jayhawks found themselves trailing by three with 9.4 seconds to play in the first OT. Goodrich, who shot 5-of-16 for the night, rushed the ball up the floor and calmly buried a three-pointer in front of the KU bench that tied the game with just under five seconds to play. The three-point bomb was Goodrich’s third of the night and came as a result of some extra attention to that part of her game. “These last couple of days, I’ve been trying to work on (those shots) more,” Goodrich said. “At the end of games like that, everyone’s thinking Mony, Mony, Mony (Monica Engelman), and we need to have other people ready to step up.” Goodrich’s three-pointer tied the game at 63 and set the stage for Davis to dominate the second OT, which KU won, 11-4. Davis gave all the credit to Goodrich. “She played an awesome game,” Davis of Goodrich, who finished with 14 points, eight assists and eight rebounds. “Look at the stat sheet. She filled it up. And she’s done a great job of leading this team all year.” To call the victory big would be an understatement. After knocking off No. 23 Texas on the road in their conference opener last week, the Jayhawks dropped a home game to in-state rival Kansas State on Saturday.

the result of lingering disappointment from that loss. “It’s hard to believe you feel desperate the third (conference) game in,” Henrickson said. “But we had some of that. You can’t (lose) backto-back games at home.” In addition to being “really, really proud” of her team’s never-say-die mentality against the Cyclones, Henrickson said she hoped her players learned a lesson. “You have to embrace the struggle in this league,” she said. “That’s what it is.

KANSAS 81, TEXAS TECH 46

L AWRENCE J OURNAL -W ORLD

Red Raiders suffer ‘good whipping’ By Jesse Newell jnewell@ljworld.com

LUBBOCK, TEXAS — Texas Tech coach Billy Gillispie was able to summarize Wednesday’s 81-46 Big 12 basketball loss to Kansas University pretty well in the first five words of his news conference. “Just a real good whipping,” the first-year coach said. After leading 18-17 with 5:42 to go in the first half, the Red Raiders started to come

unraveled right after 6-foot6 freshman Terran Petteway picked up an intentional foul and ejection at the 5:01 mark following contact with KU guard Conner Teahan. Gillispie said he didn’t wait for an explanation from the officials. “I really wasn’t in the mood to be listening to it,” Gillispie said. “They called it, and we suffer the consequences, whatever it is.” Following that foul, KU ended the half on a 15-2 run to take a 35-20 halftime lead.

“I think we might have focused too much on the technical instead of just playing our game,” Texas Tech sophomore Jaye Crockett said. “ ... You can’t just dwell on that one thing.” Losing focus was far from the only problem for the Red Raiders, who scored their fewest points since a 66-45 loss to Kansas State on March 7, 2007. “Very, very few times did we execute plays,” Gillispie said, “or make the right pass on time, on target.”

Gillispie’s game plan offensively centered around trying to get the ball inside, whether by driving or passing. It didn’t work. The coach was frustrated that his team couldn’t establish any interior presence, as his two starting forwards — Robert Lewandowski and Jordan Tolbert — combined for six points on 3-for-10 shooting with five turnovers. The two came in averaging a combined 22.4 points per game. “They basically play the

same defensive rules that we play,” Tolbert said. “They just play harder than us.” The loss was the Red Raiders’ 17th-straight against a ranked opponent. Gillispie fell to 1-3 all-time against Self. “Give all the credit to Kansas,” Gillispie said. “They’ve got a really nice team and were able to do whatever they wanted to on both ends of the court. We didn’t give them any opposition at all.” Gillispie also left impressed by KU junior forward Thomas Robinson. Af-

ter posting just five points in the first half, Robinson finished with 19 points and 12 rebounds in just 19 minutes. “We did a really good job on him early,” Gillispie said. “But they just kept with it for 40 minutes, and that’s a lesson our guys need to learn. They didn’t start out very well in the game, but they just kept on, kept on, kept on executing with discipline and guarding with discipline. And over time, if you do that, you’re probably going to be very effective.”

NOTEBOOK

Kansas to fete ’02 team By Gary Bedore gbedore@ljworld.com

LUBBOCK, TEXAS — Kansas University’s 2002 Final Four team will be recognized during Saturday’s KU-Iowa State game, set for a 3 p.m. tipoff in Allen Fieldhouse. That team, which featured the likes of Drew Gooden, Nick Collison, Kirk Hinrich and Wayne Simien, went 33-4 overall and 16-0 in the Big 12. Those who have indicated they will attend: players Simien, Jeff Hawkins, Lewis Harrison, Todd Kappelmann and Chris Zerbe, trainer Mark Cairns and managers Jessica Zuniga and Jeff Hackel. O

Schedule update: KU will play in the CBE Classic next November in Kansas City, Mo., KU schedule-maker/ special assistant to the athletic director Larry Keating indicated Wednesday. The Jayhawks originally were going to compete in the 76 Classic in Anaheim, Calif. It is not yet known what other teams will play in the CBE. KU will play two games against yet-to-be determined teams at Allen Fieldhouse, then two in Sprint Center. In 2013-14, KU will compete in the Battle 4 Atlantis Tournament in the Bahamas. There’s talk that USC, Villanova, Maryland and Michigan also will be in the eight-team field. KU will have one home game in that tournament, then three in the Bahamas. KU has not yet chosen a tourney for 2014-15. In 201516, KU will play in the Maui Invitational. KU also will play Michigan State next preseason in Atlanta as part of the Champions Classic. KU will play Duke in Chicago the following season, also in the Classic. O

Ellis sets school mark: Future KU forward Perry Ellis, who scored 30 points off 11-of-14 shooting in Wichita Heights’ 63-49 victory over Wichita South on Tuesday night, passed Aubrey Sherrod as leading scorer in Heights history. The 6-foot-8 Ellis now has 1,754 career points, 15 more than Sherrod (1978-81). Ellis is No. 2 scorer in Wichita City League history. He trails former KU center Greg Dreiling, who totaled 1,963 at Wichita Kapaun Mount Carmel from 1977-81. Ellis passed Sherrod on a three-point play with 2:30 left in the second quarter. “That’s a real honor,” Ellis told the Wichita Eagle. “With all the people that came before me — Aubrey Sherrod, Antoine Carr and all of them, that’s a real blessing.” Heights, which is shooting for its fourth-straight state title this season, has now won 51 games in a row. Ellis, who is ranked No. 24 in the Class of 2012 by Rivals. com, will be recognized at his school before Friday’s home game. “He scores all those points without an ‘I’m going to get mine’ mentality,” coach Joe Auer told the Eagle. “It’s, ‘We’re going to win.’ It’s quite an amazing feat when the team succeeds at the same time a player succeeds statistically.”

KANSAS FORWARD KEVIN YOUNG ELEVATES FOR A DUNK late in the first half. KU rolled over Texas Tech, 81-46, on Wednesday in Lubbock, Texas.

coached a long time. He knows what he’s doing.” On Wednesday, KU’s back-breaking 18-2 run (that stretched all the way to 39-8 into the second half to give KU a 56-26 lead with 11:40 left) was sparked by a flagrant foul on Terran Petteway. He apparently punched — or at least whacked — Teahan in the face down low by the goal. Teahan hit two free throws immediately following a Travis Releford three (12 points

in 32 minutes) that opened the run. “I know my mouth is bleeding,” Teahan said with a smile, asked if he was punched on purpose. “It didn’t hurt too bad. They (refs) said he punched me. It didn’t hurt too bad or anything like that. “You know what? We were both getting a little physical under the basket. I think he turned and pushed and was a little higher than he expected and hit me in the mouth. I

didn’t pay too much attention to it. I didn’t like to see a guy get tossed so early in the game. I didn’t take offense to that.” KU’s Thomas Robinson, who picked up two early fouls, finished with 19 points and 12 boards in 19 minutes. Tyshawn Taylor had 15 points, five assists and four turnovers in 28 minutes. “We had eight points with 10 minutes left (in first half). How did we get to 81?” Self asked. “Billy (Gillispie, Tech coach) was smart. They were physical early and had the game going the way they want. It was ugly, muddied. In stretches we played well, but we can’t take all the credit defensively. They shot miserably (31.4 percent, 1-of-11 from three).” KU, which will meet Iowa State at 3 p.m. Saturday in Allen Fieldhouse, will tangle with Baylor on Big Monday in Allen. Baylor won by 13 at Tech last Saturday. “It’s hard to compare scores,” Self said. “I do think we’re playing a little bit better (of late). Our schedule nonconference from an RPI standpoint ... it’s not getting any credit at all. Few people have played five teams in the top 18. Iowa State is good. We get a chance to play another top-five team (Monday). Missouri will be in the Top 10 when we play them. We’ll get chances to play some more good teams.”

is required to bring on such rapid improvement. “He works hard in the weight room,” Self said. “He’s trying to become a student of the game, trying to understand. You know I struggled with him early in the season. Not from a bad standpoint, just from a standpoint I didn’t think he was understanding how he should play to give us the best chance.” In the season’s opening weeks, Self offered words of caution on making too much of Robinson���s numbers. “It seems to me since Christmas the light’s just come on,” Self said. “It seems like he’s more poised. He’s more patient. He’s looking for others better. He’s not trying to score out of doubles, and he’s just making the game so

much easier for himself right now. I think that’s the thing I’m most proud of.” With improved understanding came a line of teammates following him. “His energy level is so much better than it was early in the season,” Self said. “I mean, it was awful at times. Now it’s like everybody feeds off him. We can talk about Tyshawn (Taylor), Travis (Releford), all that stuff. Hey, when Thomas is turned up, that automatically turns everybody up.” When Robinson’s poise, patience, power and passion percolate, pity the poor power forward playing against him. Guarding him is tougher than saying, “Peter Piper picked a peck of pickles,” 10 times really, really fast.

“He’s scary, almost, when he gets turned up,” Self said. “He can fire everybody up.” That passion used to lead to foul trouble. It seldom does anymore, although it did against the Red Raiders, when Robinson committed his second foul with 11:25 left in the half. He checked back in later in the half and played a few more minutes without getting whistled for a third. “It was just me trying to learn a lesson because I’m pretty sure it’s not the last time that I get two fouls in the first half,” Robinson said of being sent back into the game. “I don’t want it to happen, but it probably will. It’s just me learning how to play smart with my hands and feet when I’m in foul trouble. I put my team in a bad posi-

shots. We made guarded looks.” KU used an 18-2 run to close the first half to build a 35-20 lead at the break. Does Self like his chances to double the 250 total at KU? “I don’t know,” he said. “That means people around here would have to put up with me for a long time. I don’t know if people want to do that. That’s be pretty awesome to get 500 at one school. Hey, I’d like to get to 300. That’d be my next goal, or to 251.” KU senior guard Conner Teahan (eight points, 17 minutes) said he wasn’t aware of the 49-year-old Self going for KU win No. 250 entering the game, but wasn’t shocked, either. “He’s a great coach. Obviously, he’s been very successful,” Teahan said. “I’m surprised he hasn’t won more, to be honest. He’s that good a coach.” Kevin Young, who scored seven points and grabbed seven boards in 21 minutes, added of the 250-victory total: “That’s a crazy amount of wins. He’s a great coach. He played the game. He’s

stroking jumpers, but he’s not overdoing it. He still knows where he’s needed most, where he’s most unstoppable. Besides, he enjoys dunking. Who wouldn’t? “I thought the second half he showed a lot of people how talented he is,” Kansas coach Bill Self said of the junior forward from Washington, D.C. “I thought he was terrific the second half.” Robinson had 14 points and seven rebounds in 10 second-half minutes. He certainly has an abundance of talent, but more than that

tion. Coach put me back out there, so that’s just him gaining trust in me, I guess.” It’s amazing what great athletes can accomplish when they know teammates are depending so heavily on them. “Just knowing how important I am to my team,” has helped Robinson stay out of foul trouble, he said. “In the previous years I can go in and hack somebody and nobody cares, still got the twins (Marcus and Markieff Morris) sitting over there or Cole (Aldrich). Now if I sit out with two fouls in the first half, we’re playing a team that’s coming at us pretty tough, it might be a problem.” Robinson didn’t have any trouble conquering any problem that came his way. In other words, he had a typical night.

NBA Lakers 90, Jazz 87, OT SALT LAKE CITY — Kobe Bryant scored 40 points, and Andrew Bynum blocked Al Jefferson’s shot with 1.9 seconds left in overtime to lift the Lakers to a victory over Utah on Wednesday night, ending the Jazz’s winning streak at five. The win was the first on the road for the Lakers, while Utah dropped its first home game after starting 5-0. Los Angeles handed the Jazz a 96-71 loss Dec. 27 in Utah’s season opener. This one was close, with Paul Millsap’s tip-in tying it at 78 with 21 seconds left in regulation. Bryant missed a shot at the buzzer that would have won it in regulation for Los Angeles. Millsap scored the first four points of overtime, but the Lakers fought back, with three-pointers by Bryant and Pau Gasol. The Jazz had a chance to win it, but Bynum blocked Jefferson’s short jumper.

Mavericks 90, Celtics 85 BOSTON — Dirk Nowitzki scored 16 points, driving past Kevin Garnett for the goahead layup with 5.1 seconds left in Dallas’ victory over Boston. Dallas led most of the game, but Paul Pierce hit a three-pointer — just his second basket of the night — to tie it at 85 with 25 seconds to play. Former Celtic Delonte West dribbled the clock down to about 10 seconds before giving it to Nowitzki. The NBA finals MVP cut to the basket past Garnett and picked up a foul from Brandon Bass while floating the ball into the basket.

being with them. But I am lonely. I have a network of friends, many of whom are widows, who say I would be crazy to leave him. I am afraid of making a mistake at my age, but living like this is miserable. Am I too old to start over? — Lonely in New York Dear New York: No, but you have to be willing to be alone because that is a possibility. Your husband anniesmailbox@comcast.net is probably afraid that cuddling, kissing and hugging and have the time to spend will leave you with raised together, he has no interest expectations. We are cerin being with me. I am still fairly attractive at the age of 70. I would love to go on vacations and am also interested in a sex life. My husband, however, couldn’t care less. He saw a doctor regarding his inability to have sex, but had no success and gave up. He keeps himself busy, but he has locked me out both physically and emotionally. I would be happy kissing, hugging and cuddling, but he scoots so far away, I am surprised he does not fall off the bed. Even when watching TV, he will put on programs he knows I don’t care for, and if I object, he goes into another room. We seem to have nothing in common anymore, except our grandchildren. He enjoys

“Rob” (7:30 p.m., CBS) is not as horrible as I had feared. And that’s saying a lot. Rob Schneider (“The Hot Chick”) plays the title character, a fussy, obsessive-compulsive landscape architect and bachelor who impulsively marries Maggie (Claudia Bassols) in Las Vegas. There’s little chemistry between the two leads, who are supposed to be madly in love. Comedy ensues when Maggie feels compelled to integrate Rob into her large Mexican-American family. Cue the ancient, lame ethnic jokes. It’s a little sad to see a network comedy fumbling so awkwardly around HispanicAmerican culture 60 years after Lucy married a Cuban bandleader on “I Love Lucy.” The chief tensions on “Rob” are between Rob and his in-laws, Fernando (Cheech Marin) and Rosa (Diana Maria Riva). Ethnic jokes! In-law humor! It feels about as fresh as a Dean Martin roast. For its many faults, “Rob” is a rare comedy that actually admits that grownups have extended family ties, tensions, affections and responsibilities. Devoid of any discernible ethnicity, Rob is a perfect symbol of rootless contemporary TV characters. He complains about his mother’s insistence that he see her “almost every Christmas.” If “Rob” survives (and it could just thrive), it’s because Cheech Marin has the potential to play Archie Bunker to Rob’s Meathead. Clearly aimed at a large and growing Hispanic audience, “Rob” would do well to downplay Rob and put the accent on Maggie’s disapproving family.

JACQUELINE BIGAR’S STARS For Thursday, Jan. 12: You work on a different level from many other people, especially this year. Your intuition evolves, allowing greater understanding. If you are single, you could meet someone quite spectacular in your day-to-day travels. If you are attached, the two of you connect on a very different mental plane. Virgo can be irritating at times. 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)  Your dream life might be more active than you realize. Enthusiasm surrounds a money venture. Tonight: Go as late as you can. Taurus (April 20-May 20)  Where others have the facts, you have ingenuity. Team up together, and a project or idea can only become stronger. Tonight: Let the fun begin. Think “weekend.” Gemini (May 21-June 20)  You might feel strangely about an option that appears. As a result, it might be appropriate to rethink a decision that involves your security. Tonight: Taking some much-needed downtime.

Tonight: Balance your checkbook before making any plans. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)  Your ability to melt barriers and get past an immediate issue helps clear out a problem. You don’t need to agree with those in your social or professional circle. Tonight: As you like it. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)  Know when to kick back and say that you have had enough. Your ability to center and regroup helps you orient your thinking. Tonight: Vanishing time. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)  A meeting proves to be more important than you thought. You have a lot to think about. Tonight: Start the weekend early.
