TOPEKA (AP) — Some Kansas liquor store owners are hoping the Legislature makes it legal for them to hold tastings in which customers can sample certain products before buying them. A measure introduced in the state Senate by several liquor marketing associations is the result of a controversy that emerged after retailers started arranging tastings near their liquor stores. The Topeka CapitalJournal reported that because state law blocked consumption of alcoholic beverages inside stores, proprietors staged events

The issue of big boarding houses and the future of the Oread neighborhood will return to Lawrence City Hall tonight. City commissioners at their weekly meeting will consider revising regulations that several homeowners in Oread say would allow too many boarding houses to be built in the neighborhood. A boarding house is a type of structure that is exempt from the requirement that no more than four unrelated people can live in a

Among the findings were:

A team of volunteers counted about 2,700 visitors who attended various art venues as part of the Final Fridays event.

A random survey of 191 people found that visitors planned to spend about $31 per person as part of the event, with the bulk of the spending on souvenirs/gifts and meals and refreshments.

Using the survey results, the study estimates that the November event generated about $80,000 in spending for the community.

The prospects are very good, but being a liquor bill, I’m cautiously optimistic.” — Lobbyist R.E. “Tuck” Duncan nearby. That stopped after representatives of the Kansas Department of Revenue issued a policy memorandum in August declaring that the agency’s interpretation of state law prohibited samplings, whether free or not, “in, on, or about the licensed premises.” The Senate measure would allow retailers to

host in-store tastings for people interested in trying unfamiliar beers, wines or distilled spirits. “We’ve talked about it,” said Shawn McKeever, a liquor store clerk at Fleming Place Wine and Spirits in Topeka. “We sell a lot of craft beer.” Regulators concluded no tastings would be authorized for party or smoke shops, parking lots, sidewalks or alleys adjacent to liquor store property. R.E. “Tuck” Duncan, a Statehouse lobbyist working with organizations seeking to get the bill passed, said the intent was to es-

tablish in state law the opportunity for liquor stores to host tastings similar to those well known to wine country enthusiasts. A Senate hearing on the bill is likely in a few weeks, and Duncan said the measure hasn’t sparked an outpouring of criticism. “The prospects are very good, but being a liquor bill, I’m cautiously optimistic,” Duncan said. Individual portions for tastings would be limited to one-half ounce for distilled spirits, one ounce for wine and two ounces for beer or Please see LIQUOR, page 5A

multifamily zoned property. Instead, the number of people who can live in CITY COMMISSION a boarding house is governed, in part, by the amount of off-street parking each house can provide. Previously, the parking standard was .75 parking space per one bedroom. But the new regulations allow boarding houses to use a calculation of .5 parking space per bedroom. But in order to qualify for the

reduced parking rate, the house must be at least 3,500 square feet in size. City planning staff members have said unfinished basements and attics should be counted in figuring the total square footage of a house, with the idea that those spaces could be made livable at some point. But research by the city has now confirmed that 89 homes, or about 20 percent of all homes in the Oread neighborhood, would be eligible for the reduced parking standards. Several Oread residents have said such a large increase in the number of

boarding houses would worsen parking and other congestion problems in the neighborhood. Some landlords, though, have said the city does need to encourage the conversion of large homes into boarding houses as a way of preserving the structures. If the large homes can’t be used as boarding houses, some landlords have argued, the old houses will be more likely to be torn down. Commissioners meet at 6:35 p.m. today at City Hall. — City reporter Chad Lawhorn can be reached at 832-6362. Follow him at

A school consolidation advisory group picked what members believe are the five best scenarios for closing two to three elementary schools in Lawrence over the next couple of years. After spending nearly three hours Monday night debating the pros and cons of the proposals, the Central and East Lawrence Elementary School Consolidation Working Group selected the options they wanted to send to consultants RSP & Asso-

ciates Inc. for further study. A group of about 30 members has been working since early September to come up with a plan that would reduce a list of six elementary schools — Cordley, Hillcrest, Kennedy, New York, Pinckney and Sunset Hill — down to either three or four within two years, as directed by the school board. The most comprehensive proposal being sent to RSP & Associates is a multi-layered approach that involves consolidating Kennedy and New York at a site on 15th Street and Haskell Avenue, close

to the former East Heights School site, or at Kennedy. Hillcrest and Sunset Hill would also be consolidated at an expanded Sunset Hill site. And, Pinckney would be expanded and Prairie Park would take more students who speak English as a second language. The group also offered a scaled-down version of that proposal, which would simply combine Kennedy and New York at the 15th Street and Haskell Avenue site and bring Hillcrest students to Sunset Hill. Another option would be

to combine Hillcrest and Pinckney, which would require shutting down one of those schools and keeping the other one open. And, the final two proposals would combine Cordley and New York, either by expanding and upgrading the Cordley site or by expanding the New York site. With those proposals, the group wants the consultants to consider among other things class size, enrollment numbers in five years, how many of the students would be within a mile or half a mile walking distance, the

socio-economic mix of the students, how many students would be displaced, the effect on students who speak English as a second language and the change on traffic patterns. The group also ruled out some proposals. For example, they decided that children shouldn’t have to travel over the Kansas River to attend Woodlawn. They also took several proposals off the table. They were:

how they believed the event affected their sales. Of the 24 businesses that responded to a Downtown Lawrence Inc. survey, seven reported that Final Fridays resulted in an increase in sales. The majority of businesses, however, said they did not think the event affected their sales. In addition, seven art galleries reported art sales of just more than $6,000 at the November event. Kirkendall said arts supporters likely will lobby the City Commission this summer for funding to create a new city arts position. Kirkendall said he doesn’t yet have an estimate on how much the city would need to invest in the position. But he said the idea has been used in other comparable cities. He said Fort Collins, Colo., Bloomington, Ind., and Chapel Hill, N.C., all have city positions devoted to arts or cultural development. Kirkendall said any position in Lawrence should go beyond just organizing and promoting arts events. He said a new position also would market Lawrence to businesses that rely on creativity. He said such businesses could include firms in the sciences, architecture, advertising, engineering and other similar fields. “I think the key to success in the future is for Lawrence to become part of a creative hub,” Kirkendall said. “We think a fairly modest investment could pay huge dividends in the long run.” City funding for any new position likely will be tight in the 2013 budget, but City Commissioner Hugh Carter said he wants to study the idea further. He said a more detailed plan about how a new position could “leverage the city’s arts culture” is needed before he could commit to a new City Hall post. But Carter said he agrees with the idea that the arts and “creative industries” can be a larger part of the city’s economic development efforts. “We have some real resources here, and I can definitely see how some coordination of efforts could be a big part of being successful,” Carter said. Kirkendall said the Lawrence Cultural Arts Commission likely will request a study session with the City Commission later this year. In the meantime, Final Friday organizers will explore ways to better market the event and create some events on Saturdays in order to give out-of-town art aficionados more of an incentive to stay overnight in the city. — City reporter Chad Lawhorn can be reached at 832-6362. 609 N.H.

MagnaGro owner denies claims in lawsuit By George Diepenbrock

The owner of MagnaGro Corp. has denied a Eudora woman’s claims that he failed to provide safety information to employees in a lawsuit over a 2010 industrial accident at the business. An attorney for Raymond Sawyer has issued a broad denial in an answer to a lawsuit Rowena Hillebert filed last

year alleging Sawyer’s actions caused her physical and mental injuries. Hillebert claimed she was injured April 1, 2010, when she tried to rescue her brother, Roy Hillebert, 51, from a large tank he had gone in to to try to rescue another man, Brandon Price, 25. Authorities have said both men died after they were overcome by fumes from a material being mixed at MagnaGro’s fertilizer operation, 600 E. 22nd St.

Hillebert’s attorneys also alleged Sawyer grabbed and pushed Rowena Hillebert during an incident in December 2010 when she was cleaning his office. “The acts and conduct of (Sawyer) were taken in self-defense and to protect (him) from the aggressive acts of (Rowena Hillebert) threatening to and attempting to inflict physical harm on (Sawyer),” his attorney Don Peterson wrote.

Funny face on

TOPEKA — Gov. Sam Brownback is proposing that Kansas create a special fund to help cover the costs of recovering from natural disasters. The measure is part of the budget Brownback has outlined for the fiscal year beginning July 1. He wants the state to set aside $12 million for disaster relief. The money would come from taxes that insurance companies already pay on the value of the premiums they charge in Kansas. Brownback The state expects to collect $139 million in premium taxes during the next fiscal year. Brownback’s budget notes that Kansas incurred nearly $109 million in costs from winter storms, flooding and tornadoes over the past five years. That figure doesn’t include either federal or local governments’ expenses.

Sawyer did receive a Lawrence Municipal Court battery citation for that incident, and a federal judge later revoked his probation in connection to a guilty plea to a misdemeanor in 2009 for discharging waste from his fertilizer operation into the city’s sewer system. Sawyer has been released from federal prison after serving nine months on the probation violation.

Wichita State: Student has tuberculosis WICHITA — Officials at Wichita State University say a student has tested positive for tuberculosis, an infectious disease that usually attacks the lungs. University officials released little information about the student Monday, but they say the person has been quarantined. KWCH-TV reported the university could not say if the student lives on or off the HEALTH campus. Wichita State has been on winter break since mid-December. Officials believe the exposure of other students to the ailing person has been limited. Classes at the university resume today.

Center to serve homeless Wichita youth WICHITA — A drop-in center where homeless youth can get off the streets of Wichita for a while is several steps closer to opening. Dozens of volunteers spent Martin Luther King Jr. Day helping renovate the Midtown Good Neighbor Center, picking up trash, installing cabinets and assembling furniture. KFDI-FM reported that U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom was among the volunteers. The project was conceived by Jennifer White, creator of an organization to end human trafficking in Wichita. The Wichita Children’s Home will run the center. Reesa Rehmert is the center’s coordinator of services for homeGrissom less youth. Rehmert says the center received calls from more than 250 youths last year who had no place to go. The center will offer basic services, including laundry and shower facilities. The ribbon-cutting is scheduled for February.

New MBA program targets recent grads By Andy Hyland

A new MBA program at Baker University is targeted for recent graduates just starting their careers. The university received approval from the Higher Learning Commission of Colleges and Schools to launch the program, and the university is accepting applications now for the inaugural class that will start its work in June. The intensive full-time 15-month program will be based at the Baldwin City campus and will have 60 credit hours of course work.

It’s designed for recent graduates who have three years or less experience in the business world, said Kevin McCarthy, professor in the department of business and economics who helped design the program. He said the university decided to offer the program after talking with area businesses and surveying the marketplace. “We thought, ‘Let’s take what we think we do well and see if we can come up with something that’s different than what others are doing in the marketplace,’” he said. McCarthy said the program is looking for academically talented students with undergraduate GPA scores of 3.5 or better and

a Graduate Management Admission Test score of at least 600 who are willing to commit to the 15-month program. The program will combine classwork with residencies and real-life case studies in the business world, McCarthy said. The first class will be small — about 15 students, he said — as the school lacks the capability to offer the program to a large number of students.

TOPEKA — Progress on modernizing the Kansas computer system for issuing driver’s licenses is six months ahead of schedule and could mean that some potential voters will be required to show proof of their U.S. citizenship during this year’s presidential election, a key legislator said Monday.

The law applies to people registering to vote for the first time in Kansas. The rule is scheduled to take effect Jan. 1, 2013, but Secretary of State Kris Kobach wants to move the date up to June 15, ahead of the presidential election in November. Schwab’s committee is sponsoring a bill containing Kobach’s proposal and plans to have hearings by the end of the month.

Lawrence reptile, amphibian expert dies at age 72 By Andy Hyland

A Lawrence expert on reptiles and amphibians who inspired many young people to pursue their own careers in herpetology died from a heart attack Saturday in Florida at age 72. Joseph Collins worked at Kansas University’s Natural History Museum from the late 1960s to 1997, and later attained the title of adjunct herpetologist at the Kansas Biological Survey, though his highest level of formal education was an associate’s degree. He still published many books on reptiles and amphibians, and helped found herpetological societies that served Kansas and the nation.

“He was a great mentor of students,” said his wife, Suzanne Collins, who often accompanied him in the field to take photos of animals. “Not only small children but adult graduate students, too. He was very passionate about his field.” Curtis Schmidt, zoological collections manager at the Sternberg Museum in Hays, said he was one of Collins’ “semi-adopted children,” who accompanied him on trips all over the country to find various species of reptiles and amphibians. Schmidt said he first met Collins through the Kansas Herpetological Society “at the ripe old age of 12” and remained close friends with him until his death. Growing up, Schmidt said he had

Oskaloosa man, 42, dies in U.S. 59 crash

A 42-year-old Oskaloosa man died in a one-vehicle, rollover crash early Monday on U.S. Highway 59 three miles south of Oskaloosa. According to a Kansas Highway Patrol report, Marty L. Warriner died after his southbound 1999 Dodge pickup truck went off the highway to the west. When he overcorrected, the truck slid sideways into the east ditch. The truck rolled once, coming to rest on its wheels. The accident occurred at 12:15 a.m. Warriner was not wearing a seat belt, according to the accident report.

He said channels have been altered to allow the waste to flow into low spots on the ground, where there was a risk of it leeching into groundwater. “The permittee has had a long and continuing history of permit violations, therefore, KDHE is public noticing its intent to terminate the permit,” according to a document filed in the Kansas Register. The document said the dairy failed to comply with the current permit, state and federal requirements and a consent agreement and final order that the dairy entered in October 2009. Medley said the violations started in 2007 after CAG took over the dairy. CAG also acquired West Plains Dairy in Scott County in 2007 but has since sold its interests in that dairy. CAG still owns a dairy in Deerfield, which Medley said does not have any current violations.

you’re definitely going to see litigation.” Kobach disputes that such measures suppress participation. Kansas will accept 13 documents as proof of citizenship for people wanting to register to vote, including a birth certificate or a passport. A driver’s license, once renewed, will be sufficient if the state issuing it complies with federal law. “If there’s an organization that wants to bring a claim, we’re ready to defend it,” Kobach said of potential litigation. “There’s not a single valid argument that can be made against it court.”

Western Kansas dairy at risk of losing key permit MagnaGro CIMARRON (AP) — A large western Kansas dairy with a history of problems will have to close if it’s unable to successfully appeal the revocation of a crucial permit. The Kansas Department of Health and Environment gave notice to international milk producer Ceres Agrar GmbH last week that the agency intends to terminate the water pollution control permit for its Cimarron dairy in Gray County. Terry Medley, the agency’s livestock waste management section chief, said the company was developing a plan of action to bring the dairy into compliance and has indicated it will appeal by the Feb. 4 deadline. If the appeal is unsuccessful, the state could force the dairy to get rid of its herd, which could number as high as 9,050 cows. “I think they understand now the seriousness of the violations,” Medley said. A woman who answered the phone at the company’s Cimarron office told The Associated Press that no one authorized to comment was available. In April 2009, the KDHE ordered the company to fix several problems, but Medley said the problems weren’t corrected. As recently as last Thursday night, there was a wastewater spill at the dairy, The Hutchinson News reported. Medley said the company has altered the earthen walls where

Peterson also argued that Hillebert was not able to seek relief under claims filed in the lawsuit because she had filed a workers’ compensation claim. Hillebert’s attorneys, Sally Kelsey and Donald Strole, have said the lawsuit is an attempt to recover potential damages that wouldn’t be covered as part of her workers’ compensation claim because they allege Sawyer did

According to court records, the Kansas Workers’ Compensation Fund has also joined in the suit seeking to recover its contributions because the fund “stepped into the shoes of the employer and provided and continues to provide workers’ compensation benefits” to Hillebert.

GLADSTONE, MO. (AP) — A Texas woman accused in the shooting death of a psychiatrist in suburban Kansas City has been taken into custody in Kansas. Shannon L. O’Roark Griffin, 52, of Granbury, Texas, was charged Saturday in Clay County with first-degree murder and armed criminal action in the death of Dr. Irina Puscariu of Gladstone, according to court records. According to a probable cause statement filed by Gladstone police, O’Roark Griffin shot Puscariu three times at the psychiatrist’s home Friday afternoon after her husband said he would not end their affair. O’Roark Griffin then called her husband, Roscoe L. Griffin, and told him what she had done. Roscoe Griffin called the police. The Kansas Highway Patrol arrested O’Roark Griffin Friday evening near Wichita, Kan. She was being held Monday in the Sedgwick County jail without bond and was awaiting extradition to Missouri.

Court records did not indicate if Griffin has a lawyer, and a telephone number listed under her name had apparently been disconnected. The Clay County prosecutor’s office was closed for the holiday Monday. Puscariu’s mother, Aneta Puscariu, told police her daughter answered the door of their Gladstone home to a woman who came inside and shot her to death, according to the probable cause statement. Aneta Puscariu later identified O’Roark Griffin as the shooter from photographs, police said. Roscoe L. Griffin, 62, told detectives he and his wife had been to see a therapist Friday. At that meeting, they discussed divorce and he said “he would not give I. Puscariu up,” according to the probable cause statement. Later his daughter telephoned to say her mother had just called to say she had shot and killed Irena Puscariu. Shannon O’Rourk Griffin then called her husband and told him the same.

State Republican leaders under pressure from right By John Hanna Associated Press

TOPEKA — The top Republican leaders in the Kansas House and Senate face criticism from their political right because of how they’re handling major issues. Senate President Steve Morris has been targeted by smallgovernment, anti-tax conservatives who’d like to oust him from his seat in the GOP primary in August. The Hugoton Republican faces dissention among GOP senators for creating a special study group on tax issues — a move some interpret as an attempt to stall Republican Gov. Sam Brownback’s efforts to overhaul the individual income tax code. In the House, Speaker Mike O’Neal seems an unlikely target of criticism from the right because he’s established conservative credentials and been an ally of the conservative governor. But shortly after O’Neal removed another conservative from the powerful House Appropriations Committee, that lawmaker excoriated him in an email and accused O’Neal of abusing his power by naming himself chairman of the committee drafting political redistricting legislation. The criticism faced by Morris demonstrates that as much power as conservatives gained from the 2010 elections, a key question for voters in 2012 will be whether they want to push the state further to the right. Rep. Owen Donohoe’s criticism of O’Neal shows conservatives aren’t a monolithic bloc. “We work with a diverse group — some would say an

eclectic group,” said House Majority Leader Arlen Siegfried, of Olathe, whose Statehouse office features a large, framed poster of former President Ronald Reagan and quotes the conservative icon’s so-called 11th Commandment, “Thou shalt not speak ill of any fellow Republican.” Donohoe, who’s from Shawnee, has faulted O’Neal for being too close to Brownback, who some conservatives think hasn’t done enough to cut spending. And after O’Neal removed Donohoe from the Appropriations Committee, Donohoe sent a Jan. 7 email attacking him on a number of issues. Among other things, Donohoe noted that O’Neal’s wife, Cindy, who’s worked for more than two decades as an aide to House committees and the House GOP caucus, is now the committee’s administrative assistant. The state ethics commission dismissed a nepotism complaint against O’Neal in 2009, saying there was no evidence he helped his wife get a job with the GOP. Donohoe’s email brought a quick response from Appropriations Committee Chairman Marc Rhoades, who said he decided “completely on my own” to hire Cindy O’Neal. Donohoe also criticized O’Neal, a 27-year veteran of the Legislature, for appointing himself chairman of the committee that will redraw House members’ districts. House Minority Leader Paul Davis, of Lawrence, is the panel’s ranking Democrat. Meanwhile, Morris faces political turmoil because he leads the last significant

moderate stronghold in state government. He and other senators are labeled as moderates in part because they worked in 2010 to avoid an impasse with then-Democratic Gov. Mark Parkinson over balancing the budget and supported his push to increase the state’s sales tax. They’ve also resisted some conservatives’ push for hard caps on state spending growth and last year quietly blocked a House-passed plan to phase out individual income taxes, fearing it would starve education and other government programs. The Kansas Chamber of Commerce has targeted Morris and seven other moderates in GOP primaries, and the anti-tax, small-government group Americans for Prosperity also plans to weigh in with media campaigns. Morris announced in October that he’d have a special group study tax issues during this year’s legislative session. His announcement came as Brownback’s administration was drafting its tax plan, which cuts individual income tax rates, eliminates deductions and credits and helps 191,000 business operators by exempting their partnerships and proprietorships’ earnings from income taxes. Morris said he created a special study group so that he could appoint nonlegislators and get the public directly involved in tax discussions. “Taxes are so important. They affect the daily lives of every Kansan, and I think it’s important to have public input and evaluate these — in other words, look before you leap,” he said.

courtrooms Front-runner Romney fends off debate attacks Immigration silent during review

By David Espo

Associated Press

MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. — Under heavy debate pressure from his rivals, Republican presidential front-runner Mitt Romney defended his record as a venture capitalist, insisted he bears no responsibility for attack ads aired by his allies and grudgingly said in Romney campaign debate Monday night he might release his income tax returns this spring. “I have nothing in them that Gingrich suggests there’s any problem, and I’m happy to do so,” he said. “I sort of feel like we’re showing a lot of exposure at this point,” he added. Romney came under criticism from Newt Gingrich, Rick Perry and Rick Santorum across two hours in the first of a pair of debates in the run-up to this weekend’s first-in-theSouth primary in South Carolina. The former Massachusetts governor won the first two events of the campaign, the Iowa caucuses and last week’s New Hampshire primary, leads in the pre-primary polls in South Carolina and won an endorsement from campaign dropout Jon Huntsman earlier in the day. Gingrich has virtually conceded that a victory for Romney in South Carolina would assure his nomination as

Democratic President Barack Obama’s Republican rival in the fall, and none of the other remaining contenders has challenged that conclusion. That only elevated the stakes for Monday night’s debate, feisty from the outset as former House Speaker Gingrich, Texas Gov. Perry and f o r m e r Pennsylvania Sen. Rick SantoPerry rum sought to knock Romney off stride while generally being careful to wrap their criticism in anti-Obama rhetoric. Santorum “We need to satisfy the country that whoever we nominate has a record that can stand up to Barack Obama in a very effective way,” Gingrich said. The five men on stage also sought to outdo one another in calling for lower taxes. Texas Rep. Ron Paul won that competition handily, saying he thought the top personal tax rate should be zero. In South Carolina, a state with a heavy military presence, the tone turned muscular at times. Gingrich drew strong applause when he said: “Andrew Jackson had a pretty clear idea about America’s enemies. Kill them.” Perry also won favor from the crowd when he said the Obama administration had overreacted in criticizing Marines who were videotaped uri-

Ron Paul’s 1st-class flights scrutinized

WASHINGTON — Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul has been spending large amounts on airfare as a congressman, flying first class on dozens of taxpayer-funded flights to his home state. The practice Paul conflicts with the image that Paul portrays as the only presidential candidate serious about cutting federal spending. Paul flew first class on at least 31 round-trip flights and 12 one-way flights since May 2009 when he was traveling between Washington and his district in Texas, according to a review by The Associated Press of his congressional office expenses. Four other round-trip tickets and two other one-way tickets nating on the corpses of Taliban fighters in Afghanistan. The former House speaker and Perry led the assault against Romney’s record at Bain Capital, a private equity firm that bought companies and sought to remake them into more competitive enterprises, with uneven results. “There was a pattern in some companies ... of leaving them with enormous debt and then within a year or two or three having them go broke,” Gingrich said. Perry referred to a steel mill in Georgetown, S.C. where, he said, “Bain swept in, they picked that company over and a lot of people lost jobs there.”

purchased during the period were eligible for upgrades to first-class after they were bought, but those upgrades would not be documented in the expense records. Paul, whose distrust of big government is the centerpiece of his presidential campaign, trusts the more expensive government rate for Continental Airlines when buying his tickets. Paul chose not to buy the cheaper economy tickets at a fraction of the price because they aren’t refundable or as flexible for scheduling, his congressional staff said. But records show that most of the flights for Paul were purchased well in advance and few schedule changes were necessary. Nearly two-thirds of the 49 tickets were purchased at least two weeks in advance, and 42 percent were bought at least three weeks in advance, the AP’s review found. Romney said that the steel industry was battered by unfair competition from China. As for other firms, he said, “Four of the companies that we invested in ... ended up today having some 120,000 jobs. It was Perry who challenged Romney, a multimillionaire, to release his income tax returns. The Texas governor said he has already done so, adding he believes Gingrich will do likewise later in the week. “Mitt, we need for you to release your income tax so the people of this country can see how you made your money. ... We cannot fire our nominee in September. We need to know now.”

DENVER politically divisive program, U.S. prosecutors in Denver and Baltimore are reviewing thousands of deportation cases to determine which illegal immigrants might stay in the country — perhaps indefinitely — so officials can reduce an overwhelming backlog by focusing mainly on detainees with criminal backgrounds or who are deemed threats to national security. Federal deportation hearings for noncriminal defendants released from custody were suspended Dec. 5 for the review and resume this week. Similar reviews are planned across the country to allow U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement to target deportations of illegal immigrants with criminal records or those who have been deported previously. While the immigration courtrooms in Denver have fallen silent, prosecutors had time to examine case files, check residency history, such as whether someone was brought to the country as a child, as well as criminal history. In Denver, 25 ICE prosecutors and three managers spent their work days during most of December and early this month poring over as many files in their case load as possible, ICE spokeswoman Barbara Gonzalez said. “They come in on weekends,” Gonzalez said. “They’re looking at every case.”

— Barbara Gonzalez, spokeswoman for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Officials have not released information on how many cases will be placed on low priority based on the review. When they’re finished, cases of those here illegally but deemed not a threat to public safety or national security will be placed on administrative hold and the numbers will be released. Citing tight budgets, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano announced this summer that nearly 300,000 deportation cases would be reviewed to determine which could be closed through “prosecutorial discretion.” Republicans have decried the policy as a back-door way of granting amnesty to people who are living in the U.S. illegally. “We simply cannot adjudicate all these cases that are pending,” said spokeswoman Gonzalez. Some cases in Denver date to 1996, she said. “It’s a holiday for anybody in the country illegally,” said Ira Mehlman, spokesman for the Washington-based Federation for American Immigration Reform, which opposes the initiative. “They’re doing this with the intention of dismissing as many of them as they possibly can.”

Lawyer in WikiLeaks case wants to depose Hillary Clinton WASHINGTON — A lawyer for an intelligence analyst charged with leaking classified information to the anti-secrecy website WikiLeaks wants to question Secretary of State Hillary Clinton before his client is tried.

David Coombs, a lawyer for Pfc. Bradley Manning, included a request to question Clinton as part of a redacted document posted Monday on his website and also sent to Army officials. Clinton’s name is obscured

in the document, but it is clear from context that she is the person he wants to question. Coombs failed in his attempt to call Clinton as a witness at Manning’s preliminary hearing last month. The Army

is still deciding whether the 24-year-old Manning, who is accused of causing the biggest leak of classified information in U.S. history, should stand trial. Manning is from Crescent, Okla.

Rating agency Standard & Poor’s said Monday it has downgraded the creditworthiness of the eurozone’s rescue fund by one notch to AA+, putting the fund’s ability to raise cheap bailout money at risk. The downgrade follows ratings cuts for AAA-rated France and Austria, whose financial guarantees were key to the creditworthiness of the European Financial Stability Facility. If replicated by other rating agencies, S&P’s move complicates the eurozone’s efforts to emerge from a debt crisis that has dragged on for more than two years. It also underlines how reliant states and financial firms still are on the opinion of rating agencies, despite policymakers across Europe vowing on Monday to curtail their influence. Although the ratings cut had been expected after S&P downgraded nine euro countries on Friday, the EFSF’s top official quickly moved to reassure investors. “The downgrade to ‘AA+’ by only one credit agency will not reduce (the) EFSF’s lending capacity of 440 billion euros,” Klaus Regling, the fund’s chief executive officer, said in a statement. He added that the EFSF has enough money to fund the bailouts of Ireland and Portugal, as well as a second rescue for Greece that is likely to be decided in the coming weeks.

PITTSBURGH — The huge, belching smokestacks of electric power plants have long symbolized air pollution woes. But a shift is under way: More and more electric plants around the nation are being fueled by natural gas, which is far cleaner than coal, the traditional fuel. The most optimistic projections describe an abundant domestic energy source that will create enormous numbers of jobs and lead to cleaner skies. Nationwide, the electricity generated by gas-fired plants has risen by more than 50 percent over the last decade, while coal-fired generation has declined slightly. The gas plants generated about 600 billion kilowatt hours of electricity in 2000 and 981 billion hours in 2010, according to the U.S. Energy Information Agency. During the same period coal generation declined from 1,966 billion hours to 1,850 billion hours, while hydroelectric and nuclear generation stayed about the same. The figures include electricity use by consumers and industry. Nationwide, EIA said natural gas use for power generation rose 7 percent between 2009 and 2010. That’s about 515 billion cubic feet. The biggest jumps were in the Southeast, with use rising 24 percent in North Carolina, 18 percent in Virginia and 15 percent in South Carolina.

“Most of the people I know in the electric power industry are building natural gas” plants, said Jay Apt, a professor of technology at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh. That’s because of low prices over the last few years and the relatively low cost of building such plants, compared with coal-fired or nuclear. But Apt cautions that the trend could stall because the basics of supply and demand mean that if too many plants embrace cheap gas, it won’t stay cheap. “The surest route to $6 or $8 gas is for everybody to plan on $4 gas,” Apt said, and if prices do rise, coal will again be the most costeffective fuel. Natural gas is priced per million BTU. Apt noted that there was a “huge building boom” in natural gas plants from the late 1990s to 2004, because utilities thought they would get rich from the combination of cheap fuel and plants that were highly efficient and relatively cheap to build. There were predictions that prices would stay low over the long term, too. But natural gas prices spiked, and the new gas-fired plants around the nation stayed idle much of the time. That trend was also driven by another irony: The gasfired plants are easier to start and stop compared with coal or nuclear, so many utilities used them just for peak electric demand periods.

ISLAMABAD — The political crisis engulfing Pakistan deepened Monday when the nation’s top court clashed with a beleaguered government already under attack from the powerful army — a combined assault that could bring down the U.S.-backed administration. The Supreme Court launched contempt proceedings against Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani for failing to carry out its order to reopen a corruption case against President Asif Ali Zardari and demanded Gilani make a rare appearance before the judges Thursday. If the court convicts Gilani of contempt, he could serve up to six months in prison and be disqualified from holding office. The nuclear-armed country is already grappling with an ailing economy and a violent Islamist insurgency. The latest clash could also complicate U.S. efforts to get Pakistan to cooperate on the war in neighboring Afghanistan, especially peace talks with the Taliban — although Washington had made little headway on that even before this crisis.

Rally marks MLK day with voting rights message By Jeffrey Collins Associated Press

COLUMBIA, S.C. — Thousands commemorating the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday Monday outside South Carolina’s capitol heard a message that wouldn’t have been out of place during the halcyon days of the civil rights movement a half-century ago: the need to protect all citizens’ right to vote. A similar tone was struck at Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta, where King preached from 1960 until his death. There and in South Carolina, speakers condemned the voter identification laws they said are meant to suppress black voter turnout. For most of 13 years in South Carolina, the attention at the NAACP’s annual rally been on the Confederate Snowshoer found alive has flag that still waves outside on Mount Rainier the Statehouse.

Obamas honor MLK by volunteering WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama evoked Martin Luther King, Jr.’s own words about public service Monday as Obama and his family celebrated the life of the late civil rights leader with a volunteer project. The president, along with wife Michelle Obama and daughter Malia, joined other volunteers at Browne Education Center in Washington. During brief remarks, the president said there was no better way to honor King than to do something on behalf of others. He also acknowledged the controversy surrounding a quote on the new MLK memorial in Washington, which is being changed amid criticism that it did not accurately reflect King’s words. “What he really said was all of us can be a drum major for service, all of us can be a drum major for justice,” Obama said. “There is nobody who can’t serve, nobody who can’t help somebody else.” “The right to vote is not only the cornerstone of our governance, it is the lifeblood of our democracy. And no force has proved more powerful, or more integral to the success of the great American experiment, than efforts to expand the franchise,” Holder said. “Let me be very, very clear — the arc of American history has bent toward the inclusion, not the exclusion, of more of our fellow citizens in the electoral process. We must ensure that this continues.” Texas’ new voter ID law is currently before the Justice Department, which reviews changes in voting laws in nine mostly Southern states because of their history of discriminatory voting practices. Other states that passed such laws in 2011 included Alabama, Kansas, Mississippi, Rhode Island, Tennessee and Wisconsin. Similar laws already were on the books in Georgia and Indiana, and they were approved by President George W. Bush’s Justice Department. Indiana’s law, passed in 2005, was upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court in 2008.

OIL REMOVAL SHIPS NEAR THE CRUISE SHIP COSTA CONCORDIA leaning on its side Monday after running aground near the tiny Tuscan island of Giglio, Italy, on Friday night. The rescue operation was called off mid-afternoon Monday after the Costa Concordia shifted a few inches in rough seas. The fear is that if the ship shifts significantly, some 500,000 gallons of fuel may begin to leak.

In cruise disaster, number of missing rise, environmental concerns surface By Frances D’Emilio and Nicole Winfield Associated Press

ROME — Italy’s cruise liner tragedy turned into an environmental crisis Monday, as rough seas battering the stricken mega-ship raised fears that fuel might leak into pristine waters off Tuscany that are part of a protected sanctuary for dolphins, porpoises and whales. The ship’s operator accused the jailed captain of causing the wreck that left at least six dead and 29 missing, saying he made an “unapproved, unauthorized maneuver” to divert the vessel from its programmed course. Earlier, authorities had said 16 people were missing. But an Italian Coast Guard official, Marco Brusco, said late Monday that 25 passengers and four crew members were unaccounted for three days after the Costa Concordia struck a reef and capsized off the coast of the tiny island of Giglio. He didn’t explain the jump, but indicated 10 of the miss-

ing are Germans. Two Americans are also among the missing. Brusco said there was still “a glimmer of hope” there could be survivors on parts of the vast cruise liner that have yet to be searched. The last survivor, a crewman who had broken his leg, was rescued Sunday. Waters that had remained calm for the first days of the rescue turned choppy Monday, shifting the wreckage and raising fears that any further movement could cause some of the 500,000 gallons of fuel on board to leak into the waters off Giglio, which are popular with scuba divers and form part of the protected Tuscan archipelago. Rescue operations were suspended for several hours because of the rough seas. Italy’s environmental minister raised the alarm about a potential environmental catastrophe. “At the moment there haven’t been any fuel leaks, but we have to intervene quickly,” the minister, Corrado Clini, told RAI state radio.

Babies try lip-reading in learning to talk, study says Bob McMurray, who also studies speech development. The babies “know what they need to know about, and they’re able to deploy their attention to what’s important at that point in development.” The new research appears in this week’s issue of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. It offers more evidence that quality face-time with your tot is very important for speech development — more than, say, turning on the latest baby DVD. It also begs the question of whether babies who turn out to have developmental disorders, including autism, learn to speak the same way, or if they show differences that just might provide an early warning sign. Unraveling how babies learn to speak isn’t merely a curiosity. Neuroscientists want to know how to encourage that process, especially if it doesn’t seem to be happening on time. Plus, it helps them understand how the brain wires itself early in life for learning all kinds of things. Those coos of early infancy start changing around age 6 months, growing into the syllables of the baby’s native language until the first word emerges, usually just before age 1.

there had been mounting calls from environmentalists to restrict passage of large ships in the area. The ship’s operator, Costa Crociere SpA, has enlisted one of the world’s leading salvagers, Smit of Rotterdam, Netherlands, to handle the removal of the 1,000-foot cruise liner and extract the fuel safely. Smit has a long track record of dealing with wrecks and leaks, including refloating grounded bulk carriers and securing drilling platforms in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. Meanwhile, the Italian cruise operator said Capt. Francesco Schettino intentionally strayed from the ship’s authorized course into waters too close to the perilous reef, causing it to crash late Friday and capsize. The navigational version of a “fly by” was apparently made as a favor to the chief waiter who is from Giglio and whose parents live on the island, local media reported. A judge today is to decide whether Schettino should remain jailed.

Targeted funds Kansas University officials apparently have been successful in selling the governor on the need to direct money at specific university goals.


udget and tax proposals put forth by Gov. Sam Brownback already have spurred considerable debate and some concerns. The state budget for the next fiscal year is far from set, but we hope when the dust settles at the end of the legislative session some key funding proposals that will benefit Kansas University are still in the mix. Brownback included three major funding proposals in the budget plan he presented last week: $3 million in new funding to allow KU to hire new international-caliber research professors, an additional $1.9 million for the KU Medical Center’s medical scholarship program, and $5 million to help support the KU Cancer Center’s effort to be designated as a National Cancer Center. The three proposals reflect Brownback’s preference for directing state funds at specific goals that will produce specific results. Providing funds to attract top professors to KU addresses “The three proposals reflect the state’s goal of increasing the qualBrownback’s ity and prestige of the preference for school and maintaindirecting state ing its membership funds at specific in the Association of American Universigoals that will Additional funds produce specific ties. for medical scholarresults.” ships is a boon for the KU medical school, but it also addresses the statewide need for more doctors, nurses and other medical professionals. The $5 million for the KU Cancer Center is a continuation of a years-long effort to gain the national designation. KU is awaiting a decision on its application, and whether this application is successful or KU has to do more work and submit a new application, it’s important to maintain the state’s commitment to the cancer center goal. KU officials have endured a number of years of funding cuts that have made it difficult to maintain the quality of its faculty and pursue other important goals. While general funding increases for KU still may be a tough sell, university leaders apparently have been successful in convincing the governor of the benefits of targeted funding to address specific needs. That’s good news both for the university and for the state.

It’s time for the U.S. to look south It’s no big secret that the United States has lost some economic and political clout in Latin America over the past decade, but United Nations economic projections for 2020 should set off alarm bells in Washington. According to the Santiago, Chile-based U.N. Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC), U.S. exports to the region have fallen from 60 percent of overall U.S. exports in 2000 to 39 percent today, and — if current trends continue — will fall further to 28 percent of total U.S. exports in 2020. As far as U.S. imports from Latin America and the Caribbean, they have fallen from 51 percent of total U.S. imports in 2000 to 33 percent today, and under the current trends will fall further to 26 percent of total U.S. imports in 2020. China has replaced the U.S. market as the leading buyer of goods of several South American countries, it says. “It’s very important that the United States look at Latin America with greater interest, because the U.S. presence in trade with the region has been decreasing,” ECLAC chief Alicia Barcena told me in an interview. “There is a perception in Latin America that the United States does not include the region among its priorities,” she said. “More importantly, there is a perception that the United States does not have a strategic vision of the region.”

Andres Oppenheimer

Still, the perception that Washington does not pay much attention to its ties with Latin America has grown since Obama declared in November that ‘the United States is a Pacific country’ …”

While Washington in previous decades launched ambitious regional initiatives, such as the Alliance of Progress, the Initiative of the Americas, or the Free Trade Area of the Americas, today no such grand plan exists. Washington has bilateral ties, but no regional plan, she said. President Barack Obama will have a great opportunity to propose new regional economic initiatives at the April 14-15, 34-country Summit of the Americas in Cartagena, Colombia. Among other things, Obama should pro-

pose new ways to ease customs restrictions and create more efficient supply chains within companies throughout the continent, Barcena said. U.S. officials, on the other hand, say the relative decline of U.S. trade with Latin America is due to the extraordinary rise of Asian economies over the past two decades, which has diversified the pie of U.S. trading partners. But they stress that the United States remains by far the biggest trade and investment partner of Latin America. U.S. investments account for 38 percent of all foreign investments in the region, compared to 29 percent from all 27 European Union countries combined, and virtually nothing from China, they say, citing ECLAC’s own figure. On the trade side, the United States buys far more manufactured goods from Latin America than Asian countries, which buy mostly raw materials that produce few jobs, they say. Still, the perception that Washington does not pay much attention to its ties with Latin America has grown since Obama declared in November that “the United States is a Pacific country,” and that its first economic priority will be the Asia-Pacific region. In a tour of Asian countries, Obama announced a plan to drastically expand the Trans Pacific Partnership (TTP), a ninecountry group that currently includes the United States,

Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Chile and Peru, and that may be joined by Mexico, Canada and Japan. If the expansion takes place, it would become the world’s largest and most comprehensive trade bloc. U.S. officials say the TTP will be open to other Latin American countries. “Our view is that TTP is the best chance to drive a new wave of trade liberalization in the Western Hemisphere, and to re-enforce each of our countries’ global competitiveness,” one U.S. official told me. Translation: the TTP is the only U.S. regional trade plan right now, and there is no similar proposal being contemplated for Latin America. My opinion: It would be unfair to blame Obama for the relative decline in trade with the region, since the trend started at least a decade before he took office. And claims from critics from both the left and the right that Washington has become almost irrelevant in the region are vastly overblown, because the United States remains the biggest player in the region. But there is little question that for the first time in decades, there is no U.S. regional plan to increase trade ties with Latin America. It’s OK for Washington to look East, but it should also look south. Unless it does so, the bleak ECLAC forecasts for 2020 will come true. — Andres Oppenheimer is a Latin America correspondent for the Miami Herald.

No safety net

SLT loophole

To the editor: Once again I read, in Scott Rothschild’s article, that Medicaid provides services for low-income Kansas residents. This is actually less than half true and misleads people into thinking that all poor Kansans have some sort of safety net. Kansas provides Medicaid to only 44 percent of those adults who live in poverty, (families with children and those over 65). For the 152,000 other adults under 65, who are impoverished without children, there is no safety net. If you’re a victim of the latest recession and have medical problems, your choices are few. You can ignore the problem until it disables you, kills you or goes away on its own. You can go to the emergency room, rack up a huge debt and then go bankrupt when they sue you, or you can try to find a doctor who will treat you even though they know they may not get paid. Here in Lawrence, we are fortunate to have some compassionate doctors and Health Care Access. Not all communities are so lucky. Unfortunately there is only one political party that cares enough to stand up for the disadvantaged and try to provide an option other than “no health care at all.” It baffles me how the other party prides itself on their Christian values on one hand but, when it comes to helping the 35,810,200 people living in poverty in the U.S. (“the least among us”), their answer is “Let them suffer.” Compassionate conservatism must no longer exist. Stephen J. Crockett, Lawrence

To the editor: KDOT dropped their SLT toll idea (“Toll Roadblock,” Jan. 12) like a hot potato. Their attorneys understood any change in traffic estimates would trigger a new environmental impact statement. Today that would eliminate every wetlands route. Like the controversial coal power plant in western Kansas, promoters of the wetlands SLT route managed to get their permit just ahead of tightened federal rules on noise levels for such places. The engineer who did the sound study acknowledges defects, but KDOT’s attorneys argue it is sufficient to allow the project to go forward. Judge Vratil expressed strong “misgivings” but accepted defendant’s argument that it was not her place to determine whether these shortcomings were serious enough to invalidate the EIS. NEPA standards were put in place explicitly to protect minorities from the tyranny of the majority. They are the heart of our nation’s protections against environmental injustices. Will the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver overturn this very shaky ruling? Indians have learned not to get their hopes up about a fair hearing in these matters from the federal courts. The litany of bad-faith decisions fills volumes of Indian case law. If this lower court opinion stands, NEPA will have such a large loophole that you’ll be able to drive endless convoys of trucks through it. That would delight fools and bigots. The tea party hates NEPA. Most folks in

Awesome babeee!

KU routs Baylor, wows Vitale

Tom Keegan

By Gary Bedore

Dick Vitale removed his headphones, leaned forward in his press row seat and proceeded to lavish praise on Kansas University’s basketball team late Monday night in Allen Fieldhouse. “Today it was the Robinson/ Taylor show. The inside/outside combination now of Taylor and Robinson is really special,” ESPN broadcasting legend Vitale said after Tyshawn Taylor matched his career high of 28 points (for the second-straight game), and Thomas Robinson chipped in 27 points and 14 rebounds in the Jayhawks’ 92-74 rout of previously undefeated Baylor. “Robinson to me is my choice today as the Player of the Year,” Vitale added. “Kansas was great. I said this on the air: ‘This is probably the least talented team one through eight he (Bill Self) has had since he’s been at Kansas, but as a team they really believe in each other and really are playing as a unit.’” Oh, there was a lot to praise on a night No. 7-rated KU improved to 15-3 overall and 5-0 in the league. No. 3 BU fell to 17-1, 4-1. Senior point guard Taylor hit 10 of 14 shots, including four of six threes with six assists and five turnovers in 33 minutes. Junior power forward Robinson cashed 11 of 18 shots and five of six free throws in 35 minutes. “In big games, the best players have got to play. Thomas played, and Tyshawn played,” Self said. “Not too many players in America played like those two did tonight.” KU’s tallest player, 7-foot junior Jeff Withey, also was big with 10 points, 10 rebounds, three steals and three blocks in 30 minutes. “He played like a man tonight,” Taylor gushed. “He’s one of the best shotblockers in the country. And those two fouls he had were not fouls,” Robinson said, cracking a big smile. Withey went straight up and stuffed Perry Jones III, but was whistled for a foul to the crowd’s chagrin five minutes into the second half. Nick Krug/Journal-World Photo Also for KU, Travis Releford and Elijah Johnson chipped in 11 KANSAS FORWARD THOMAS ROBINSON GETS UP FOR AN ALLEY-OOP SLAM over Baylor defenders Perry Jones III and Anthony Jones (41) during the first half. Robinson finished with 27 points in the Jayhawks’ 92-74 victory on Monday in Allen Please see KANSAS, page 4B Fieldhouse.

Taylor transforms magically It’s as if Tyshawn Taylor woke up a few mornings ago and his identity had changed, even if his body had stayed the same. He became Sherron Collins, plus a few inches and minus a few dozen pounds. In the snap of a finger, the kid whose confidence had been shaken by the venomous bite of cyberspace, turned into a relentless scoring machine. He imposed his will on the game to erase a 12-point, second-half deficit to Iowa State on Saturday, then topped himself, emphatically erased a short-lived Baylor lead late in the first half on a very big Monday, sending his team on the way to a 92-74 rout in Allen Fieldhouse, where the Bears remain winless. The first loud sign that Taylor would have the sort of night Collins had in leading Kansas to a 100-90 victory two years ago came in the first half when Thomas Robinson had the ball in his hands, facing Taylor, who was at the free-throw line. Palms up, arms stretched, Taylor pinned his shoulders back to let Robinson know he wanted the ball. Robinson hesitated, and Taylor widened his eyes, made the same gesture and all but stomped the ground, non-verbally telling his teammate he wanted the ball and he wanted it now! This time Robinson gave it to him, and Taylor showed why he so badly wanted the ball. He knew nobody could stop him from getting to the rim. Nobody stopped him all night because Taylor’s quicker than Collins ever was. He’s Cool Papa Bell quick, as in gets out of bed to turn off the light switch on the other side of the room and is back under the covers before it’s dark. Kansas coach Bill Self thought the world of the way Collins attacked, but he never invoked Allen Iverson’s name in making a quickness comparison. He did recently with Taylor.

For the first time since being introduced as the new Kansas University football coach on Dec. 9, Charlie Weis spoke with the media Monday, partly to offer a state-of-the-program address and partly to introduce quarterbacks Dayne Crist and Jake Heaps and wide receiver Justin McCay. Before getting to the meat of the news conference, Weis answered the one question that has captivated KU fans since learning of Turner Gill’s firing. “Let’s get the biggest question answered right off the bat,”

Weis said. “Yes, we’re gonna put the names on the back of the jerseys. Can we put that one to bed now?” Weis’ request to move past the uniform issue became easier with each sentence he uttered. During the 35-minute questionand-answer session, Weis delivered hard news, a few philosophical beliefs and a healthy dose of comic relief. In short, he nearly gave up as much information in a half hour than Gill gave during his entire time in charge of the Jayhawks. Weis announced 10 former players, many of whom played significant snaps during the 2011 season, had been dismissed from

the program. Those players were dismissed for everything from academic and behavioral issues to a desire to continue their careers elsewhere. Weis said he could not go into great detail about the dismissals. Six — JaQwaylin Arps, Dexter McDonald, Darrian Miller, Adonis Saunders, Brock Berglund and Keeston Terry — simply were released by the program. Three others — Jordan Webb, Tyrone Sellers and Tom Mabry — will no longer be a part of the program but will remain enrolled at KU for the spring semester and may consider playing elsewhere in the future.

“They’re in school,” Weis said. “But they’re not part of our football team, mutually decided.” And Travis Bodenstein informed Weis that he would transfer to another school. “In addition to that, there are several guys on walk-on status that have been dismissed from the team,” Weis said. “And all of those guys have been dismissed academically. I think that walkons should be treated the same Nick Krug/Journal-World Photo as scholarship players.” By announcing the moves, KANSAS FOOTBALL COACH CHARLIE WEIS Weis made clear to the media talks with media members Monday at what he already had made clear the Anderson Family Football Complex. Weis introduced some new Jayhawks and Please see FOOTBALL, page 5B announced the departure of 10 others.

Royals look to lock up young stars KANSAS CITY, MO. (AP) — Kansas City Royals owner David Glass believes small-market franchises must do whatever it takes to lock up young talent long term, even if it’s a sometimes risky proposition. That means the pressure is on Royals general manager Dayton Moore. The Royals are expected to field the youngest team in baseball this season, though that hasn’t diminished expectations. Many expect them to challenge Detroit in the AL Central behind a cadre of youthful stars such as first baseman Eric Hosmer and third baseman Mike Moustakas. Glass said he expects Moore to begin discussions with both of them on long-term deals as early as this season, even though they just arrived from the minor leagues last year. “The Indians, the Rays and other people have had some success in keeping the young ones,� Glass told The Associated Press on Monday. “I think we’ve got a special group, and keeping them together and the best of the crop is really important to us.� Tampa Bay may be the best example of how such a gamble can pay off. Last month, the Rays agreed to a five-year deal with 22-year-old left-hander Matt Moore that includes options that could stretch it to eight years, even though Moore has made only five big league appearances and two starts. But the team was willing to

The Rays have worked out similar contracts with pitchers James Shields and Wade Davis, third baseman Evan Longoria and first baseman Ben Zobrist, allowing them to compete in the loaded AL East with big budget teams like the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox. The Royals spent just over $36 million on their opening day payroll last season, last in the majors and about $165 million less than the Yankees. But that’s somewhat misleading because so many of the guys in the lineup by Septem-

USA basketball taps team for ’12 Games NEW YORK (AP) — This U.S. basketball team might be even better than the last two that won gold medals. “This will be the most talented of the three teams that I’ve had the opportunity to coach,� coach Mike Krzyzewski said Monday during a conference call. The Americans announced the 20 players who will be candidates for the London Games, adding Blake Griffin of the Clippers and LaMarcus Aldridge of Portland to the 18 holdovers from either the 2008 Olympics or 2010 world championship who have said they wish to be considered again. The 12-man roster and alternates for the Olympics will be chosen from the new player pool in June. Returning from the team that won gold in Beijing are: Kobe Bryant, LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh, Carmelo Anthony, Dwight Howard, Chris Paul and Deron Williams. Back from the reigning world champions are: Kevin Durant, Derrick Rose, Tyson Chandler, Eric Gordon, Rudy Gay, Kevin Love, Lamar Odom, Chauncey Billups, Russell Westbrook and Andre Iguodala. “I like the fact that we have a roster full of guys who’ve been champions, either in the Olympics or world championships, and guys who are excited to play,� Krzyzewski said. USA Basketball chairman Jerry Colangelo had planned to add Griffin to the national team roster in 2009, but he was hurt shortly after being selected with the No. 1 overall pick and those plans were scrapped. Aldridge was on the national team roster but withdrew from consideration for the 2010 worlds for personal reasons. But both have a shot now if the Americans decide to bolster the frontcourt on a roster loaded with point guards and wing players. And it’s an experienced group, with Anthony playing in 59 games for the U.S. and James 55. The final roster of 12 players and six alternates is due June 18, before the NBA finals will be completed in this lockout-delayed season, so there will be no time for a tryout camp. But USA Basketball needed to submit the list of all candidates by the end of this month so they could be entered in the drug-testing program. The Americans will have to decide how many point guards to keep from a list that includes Rose (the NBA MVP) Paul, Williams, Westbrook and Billups — though he started at shooting guard in Istanbul, as he does now playing alongside Paul on the Clippers. Size could be a consideration for a potential matchup against a Spain team that boasts Pau and Marc Gasol, along with Oklahoma City’s Serge Ibaka, which could help the two newcomers. Colangelo said Aldridge is a versatile big man who can shoot from the perimeter, and he sounds just as excited about Griffin as the many fans of his astounding dunks.

ber were called up from the minor leagues. Those are the guys whose contracts Dayton Moore will be eyeing soon. “Probably during this season,� Glass said. “These guys, the majority of them came up during the season last year. ... Some of them will improve significantly. Others will level off. That’s just kind of the history of the game.� Hosmer was a rookie of the year candidate after hitting .285 with 20 homers and 87 RBIs last season, while Moustakas batted .352 with four homers and 12 RBIs in September, solidifying their place as not only the cornerstone of the infield but also the entire organization.

Shortstop Alcides Escobar, second baseman Johnny Giavotella and catcher Salvador Perez also showed flashes of brilliance as they locked down spots in the starting lineup. “We like where we are,� Dayton Moore said. “Six of the nine players in the lineup for us most days will be homegrown talent, and two of the remaining three will be players we acquired through trades of players that were in our system. Now the players need to go out and play.� The Royals expect another rookie in Lorenzo Cain to start in center field, while left fielder Alex Gordon has talked about signing a long-term deal of his own after a breakout 2011 season. Glass has always defended the Royals’ often meager payroll, but there are signs he’s willing to loosen the purse strings — especially if the team is finally in contention. That could be this season, if expectations turn into results. “We’re never going to be able to do what the big markets do,� Glass said. “The Yankees, if they can have $200-million plus, they’re always going to have two or three times as much as the rest of us. “But there’s enough flexibility there,� he said. “What small markets need to do is position themselves so if the year’s going well and they’ve got a shot at winning their division, then you need to be able to step up and add to that mix whatever you need, whatever you think you need to win.�


Syracuse holds steady at top of AP poll Syracuse is a runaway No. 1 in the Associated Press’ college basketball poll for the sixth straight week. The Orange, one of three unbeatens entering play Monday, received 60 first-place votes from the 65-member national media panel. Kentucky was second with four first-place votes, followed by Baylor, which got its first No. 1 vote this season before suffering a 9274 loss at Kansas on Monday night. Duke and Missouri moved up four places to fourth and fifth, while Ohio State, Kansas, North Carolina, Michigan State and Georgetown round out the top 10. Unbeaten Murray State moved from No. 15 to No. 12. Illinois moved in at No. 22. Saint Mary’s, Calif. is No. 24, its first appearance this season. Gonzaga and Seton Hall dropped out of the poll.


Baylor keeps No. 1 rank Baylor remains the unanimous No. 1 choice in the Associated Press women’s college basketball poll. The Lady Bears received all the first-place votes Monday for the seventh straight week after routing Oklahoma State and Texas. Baylor has a challenging week ahead, visiting No. 17 Texas Tech and hosting No. 23 Kansas State. The Wildcats entered the Top 25 for the first time since the final poll of 2009 after beating then-No. 10 Texas Tech by one point. Notre Dame, Connecticut, Stanford and Duke followed Baylor. Kentucky jumped to sixth after beating Tennessee and South Carolina. Rutgers was seventh and Maryland fell to eighth after losing at Miami for its first loss. The Vols and Ohio State round out the first 10. Penn State rejoined the poll at No. 22 after defeating Nebraska, which fell from 15th to 20th. Gonzaga and South Carolina dropped out a week after entering the Top 25.


Royals deal with Pena, Getz KANSAS CITY, MO. — The Kansas City Royals agreed to one-year contracts with catcher Brayan Pena and second baseman Chris Getz on Monday, avoiding arbitration with both players. Pena will get $835,000 this season after hitting .248 with three homers and 24 RBIs in 72 games last year. He’s expected to back up Salvador Perez, who batted .331 with three homers and 21 RBIs in 39 games after getting called up from the minors. Getz receives $967,500 and can earn a $17,500 bonus for playing 110 games and a $50,000 bonus if he’s an All-Star. He made $443,000 last year. Getz, the starter last season until Johnny Giavotella was called up, hit .255 with 26 RBIs in 118 games. He will provide depth at second base and shortstop. The Royals have five players still eligible for arbitration: pitchers Luke Hochever, Felipe Paulino and Jonathan Sanchez, and outfielders Alex Gordon and Mitch Maier. Teams and players exchange salary proposals today.


Rams to introduce Fisher ST. LOUIS — The St. Louis Rams have scheduled a news conference to introduce Jeff Fisher as their new coach. The announcement for 1 p.m. today came amid reports Saints defensive coordinator Gregg Williams has agreed to join Fisher’s staff in the same role. The Rams on Friday agreed to a deal with Fisher, who sat out last season after 17 with the Titans. Fisher was the top coaching candidate this offseason and picked St. Louis, 2-14 last year and with only 15 wins the last five years, over Miami.

Tebow will start for Denver ENGLEWOOD, COLO. — Tim Tebow will enter training camp as the Denver Broncos’ starting quarterback for 2012. The team sought to curb the circus that’s sure to surround Tebow this offseason by declaring him the incumbent at a season-ending news conference Monday. John Elway, a Hall of Famer who rejoined the team a year ago as chief of football operations, has pledged to work with Tebow this offseason to polish his passing game. Tebow took over a 1-4 team in October and guided the Broncos to their first playoff berth since 2005. His 80-yard TD toss on the first play of overtime beat Pittsburgh in the wildcard round before the Broncos lost at New England Saturday. Tebow is the Broncos’ only quarterback under contract for 2012.


Djokovic grabs emphatic win MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA — Anyone who didn’t know Novak Djokovic won three of the four Grand Slam titles last year only had to look at his shoes. That’s if his emphatic first-round win Tuesday at the Australian Open wasn’t evidence enough. Djokovic started his Australian Open defense with a 6-2, 6-0, 6-0 win over Paolo Lorenzi of Italy, wearing a pair of red-white-and-blue shoes with images of his three major trophies on the sides and a Serbian flag on the heels. He gave up an early break but immediately broke back at love as he won the next 17 games, saving a breakpoint in the opening game of the second set.


Crosby to meet with specialist PITTSBURGH — Pittsburgh Penguins star Sidney Crosby will meet with a specialist this week because of lingering concussionlike symptoms. Crosby hasn’t played since Dec. 5 following a recurrence of the symptoms that sidelined him for more than 10 months last year. The 24-year-old star skated with his teammates for the first time in more than a month last Friday, a first step in what could be another long comeback. He has had dizziness and headaches and problems exerting himself at a high level.

Dixon sparks No. 5 Mizzou past Texas A&M, 70-51 The Associated Press

No. 5 Missouri 70, Texas A&M 51 COLUMBIA, MO. — Reserve Michael Dixon scored 18 points and helped spark a 17-0 first-half run as Missouri beat Texas A&M on Monday, snapping an eight-game losing streak to the Aggies. The Tigers (17-1, 4-1 Big 12) started the game by making only five of their first 14 shots from the field against the conference’s best scoring defense. But Dixon’s threepointer with 7:22 remaining in the first half started the 17-0 run that gave Missouri a 31-17 lead. Elston Turner hit a free throw to end the Aggies’ 6:32 scoreless drought. Turner and Khris Middleton both had 13 points for Texas A&M (10-7, 1-4), which scored the first seven points in the second half to get within 42-30. The Aggies got within 10 points three times, but could get no closer. Marcus Denmon’s steal and ensuing three-point play with 8:40 left started a 10-1 run for Missouri, which led 64-44 with 3:57 left in the game. Missouri’s last win over Texas A&M had been in the 2004 Big 12 tournament. Missouri is ranked in the top five for the first time since 2003-04, and has won

62 of its last 65 home games, falling only to Kansas twice and Texas A&M. The Tigers’ have won each home game this season by an average of 27.6 points. The Aggies came in allowing 57.5 points per game, holding opponents to 36.9 percent shooting. Missouri couldn’t do much better, shooting 40 percent, but the Tigers held Texas A&M to 35 percent, its second-lowest shooting percentage of the season. Denmon added 16 points and nine rebounds for Missouri, which leads the Big 12 in scoring offense (83.9) and field goal percentage (51.2). Middleton is leading the Aggies in scoring since he returned nine games ago after surgery to repair a partially torn meniscus in his right knee. Ray Turner added 11 points and nine rebounds for Texas A&M, which has lost six of eight. Ricardo Ratliffe wasn’t called for his first foul until the second half for the second consecutive game, helping Missouri avoid having to go deeper than its seven-man rotation. The Tigers outrebounded Texas A&M 3826 and were 27 of 31 from the free throw line. Texas A&M coach Billy Kennedy served as an assistant under Missouri coach

Baylor bothered by raucous fieldhouse By Matt Tait

The deafening noise might not have impacted his ability to showcase his NBA game, but Baylor University big man Perry Jones III admitted after Monday’s 92-74 loss to No. 7 Kansas University that the Allen Fieldhouse crowd played a huge role in the outcome. “It was loud,” said Jones, who finished with 18 points to lead Baylor. “It was the loudest place we’ve played in, and their fans really got into the game. We tried our best to stay together as a

team and not let the noise affect us.” Known for providing the Jayhawks (15-3 overall, 5-0 in Big 12) with one of the best homecourt advantages in college basketball, the fieldhouse fans took things to a new level Monday. With the excitement of ESPN’s Big Monday broadcast injecting energy into the seats and that surge spilling over to the players on the court, the Bears found themselves in a tough spot from the fourminute mark of the first half to the end of the game. Leading 29-26 one minute, Baylor found itself trailing by double

digits the next. Baylor coach Scott Drew said the crowd had a lot to do with that. “Because of the noise, we had trouble communicating what we were doing,” he said. That showed on both ends of the floor, as Baylor (17-1, 4-1) trailed, 39-29, at the half and by as many as 20 — 75-55 — in the second half. In racing to a 17-0 start to the season, the Bears had become known for all of the star power they put on the floor and their incredible athleticism and length. While some of that showed up Monday night, the Jayhawks had an answer — most nota-

bly junior forward Thomas Robinson, who scored eight of KU’s first 10 points and finished with 27. “He’s an All-American,” Jones said. “He played like he’s supposed to play, and he played like an upperclassman. He’s a tough guy who delivered for his team.” Senior point guard Tyshawn Taylor backed Robinson’s big night with one of his own, and, for the second straight game, appeared to be the difference. “He’s gotten better each and every year,” Drew said of Taylor. “I know when he got in the league, he was an

outstanding defender, and his offensive game has gotten better each year. He always has the toughness and the leadership.” According to Drew, Taylor’s best traits rubbed off on the entire Kansas team during Monday’s drubbing. “Early on, they were good,” Drew said of the Jayhawks. “But now they are even better, and I think the nation saw how tough they are.” Asked what he hoped his team learned from its first loss of the season, Drew pointed to the lessons it learned having a positive impact on the conference race.

“That’s the great thing about the Big 12,” he said. “That’s the great thing about playing everybody twice. It’s one game. If you let it affect you and affect the next game, then you’ve got no chance of being successful. They defended home court. They did what they were supposed to do, win your home games, and give them credit for doing that.” The Bears and Jayhawks will play Round 2 of the series on Feb. 8 in Waco, Texas. “The great thing is, you play everyone twice,” he said. “So you have a chance to play better the next time.”

Kansas University senior point guard Tyshawn Taylor was named co-Big 12 Player of the Week on Monday — with Baylor forward Perry Jones III — by a panel of media covering the conference. Taylor, 6-foot-3 from Hoboken, N.J., captured his first player award after winning Rookie of the Week honors four times during the 2008-09 season. Taylor averaged 21.5 points and 5.5 assists in victories against Texas Tech and Iowa State. He had a career-high 28 points (22 in the second half) off 10-of-21 shooting in the Jayhawks’ 82-73 comefrom-behind home victory over the Cyclones. He had 15 points and five assists in a 8146 rout of the Red Raiders in Lubbock, Texas. KU players have won or shared the award in five of 10 weeks this season. Thomas Robinson has been player of the week three times and Travis Releford once.

No controversy this year: Baylor coach Scott Drew kept his team on the court for KU’s pregame video and player introductions prior to Monday’s game. Two years ago, there was controversy when Drew led the Bears through the southwest tunnel for pregame inNick Krug/Journal-World Photo structions while the video blared and the Jayhawk start- KANSAS GUARD TYSHAWN TAYLOR SWOOPS IN FOR A BUCKET past the Baylor defense.

points apiece against BU’s zone and man-to-man defenses. Johnson played 29 minutes, leaving the court for a while in the second half after suffering a dizzy spell. “It happens sometimes. I’m fine,” Johnson said. The Jayhawks actually trailed, 27-22, with 5:57 left in the first half. That’s when Taylor took over, scoring 11 points in a half-ending, 17-2 run that gave KU a 39-29 lead at the break. He finished the half with 14 points to Robinson’s 12. He also took part in perhaps the best play of the season, lobbing a pass to Robinson, who threw down a one-handed slam for KU’s second basket of the game. “He pressed the up button and went up,” Taylor said. Robinson admitted the vicious dunk might have been the best of his career. “It’ll go down with the lob I caught at Arizona,” he said of a lob dunk Taylor tossed him, actually last year in Las Vegas versus Arizona. Back to basics, the Jayhawks who led just 43-37 with 17:34 left, then went on a 16-5 run to build a 59-42 advantage. Releford had four points, Robinson three and Taylor two in that run. Up 63-52 at 10:32, KU used an 8-0 run to put the game away effectively for good. “I think we made a statement (as far as the league race). Going out with 11 minutes (before tipoff), I told the guys we had to make a statement,” Taylor said. “The last few games we showed we can be one of the best teams.” Self noted: “We played terrific. That’s the best game we’ve played all year. The energy level was great.” There were an awful lot of smiles in the interview room after the game, with players joking around after KU took

His six assists came in a variety of ways, most memorably on a lob to Robinson, who reached his right arm all the way back and threw one down that blew away the crowd. On another instance, he shifted paces, and when he reached the lane calmly tossed up a lob for a Withey dunk. Taylor also set up a cutting Johnson with a beauty of a bounce pass off the dribble. Baylor brought a 17-0 record, a No. 3 national ranking and two McDonald’s AllAmericans into the building. If one of the teams has two

collegiate All-Americans, it won’t be Baylor. “We had the best big man, in my opinion, in the country today,” KU coach Bill Self said. “And we may have had the best point guard in the country today. I thought those guys were just fabulous.” A loud pack of 16,300 lucky people didn’t need words to express those same sentiments over and over for a two-hour demonstration of why the players in KU’s starting five have improved so vastly that it doesn’t pay to spend too much time talking about depth problems.

KANSAS QUARTERBACK DAYNE CRIST, A TRANSFER FROM NOTRE DAME, LISTENS to a question from a media member between receiver Justin McCay, a transfer from Oklahoma, left, and quarterback Jake Heaps, a transfer from BYU, on Monday at the Anderson Family Football Complex.

QB, coach happily reunite Nobody in the room knew the quarterback as well as the coach. And nobody on hand knew the coach as well as the quarterback. That’s the way it’s supposed to work but generally doesn’t when both men are new to the scene. Charlie Weis, the coach, and Dayne Crist, the quarterback, were going to win a national title together at Notre Dame. A Weis firing and Brian Kelly hiring — replete with a new offense and markedly different personal style — sandwiched between two Crist knee surgeries rewrote that script. Now the happy ending promises to take place with the Campanile, not Touchdown Jesus, overlooking the football stadium. Charlie knows quarterbacks. He has proven that with athletes as ordinary as Matt Cassel of the Kansas City Chiefs and as extraordinary as Tom Brady of the New England Patriots. Weis knows better than to let the numbers of a quarterback playing in a system and for a coach not ideally suited for his talents tell him how to judge his trigger man’s value. Charlie trusts his gut. “I don’t think you can look at (the stats),” Weis said. “Anything that’s happened with Dayne Crist in the

Big 12 Men


to his team — this will be a no-nonsense program. “I don’t care who they are,” said Weis when asked for his reaction to the prominence of several of the names. “I don’t care if they were all starters; it doesn’t make a difference. There’s a right and a wrong way of doing things, and we’re gonna do it the right way. That’s all there is to it.” He continued: “You can’t make decisions, especially coming into a program, based on how good (players) are. You have to make decisions based on them doing the right thing. Because if you don’t, as a coach, you’re a hypocrite.” Miller, Terry and Webb all were starters during 2011. Berglund drew more ink than any of them. Berglund, whose highly publicized legal battle in Colorado kept him away from the program for nearly all of the 2011 season, called the Journal-World on Monday evening and said he learned of his dismissal via Twitter. The freshman quarterback, who said he will pursue playing options at other schools, said he planned to return to Kansas as recently as a week ago but had softened on the idea after learning that his request to contact others to discuss his future had been denied. KU officials said Berglund sent an email to several people in the KU athletic department at 3:08 p.m. Sunday informing them that he would not be at a mandatory 5 p.m. Sunday team meeting. The fact he missed it was enough for Weis to make the decision for him. “He was considered dismissed from the team for not attending the mandatory team meeting,” a KU spokesperson said of Berglund.

The departure of these 10 players opens the door for Weis to sign up to the maximum allowance of 25 players in this year’s recruiting class. He may come close. “I know exactly where the number’s sitting right now, and I know where I can go to,” Weis said. “We’ll be in the 20s. Originally when I got here, we were around 14 or so, and I told you the number would be higher. Well, it’s higher.” KU has 12 players in the Class of 2012 committed, plus Crist, Heaps and McCay already on campus. “All three of these guys I recruited when I was previously a head coach at another institution,” said Weis, referring to his five years at Notre Dame. “I tried to get all three of them. I got one of ’em, and now I’m fortunate enough to have all three of them as part of my team.” In addition to the transfers and high school players, Weis emphasized he would continue to look to the junior-college ranks to help bolster KU’s roster. “There’s three different avenues that we’re exhausting to try to get together the strongest recruiting class we possibly can,” he said. “And I think things are moving in the right direction. I have a bunch of guys that know what they’re doing in recruiting. We have a good plan, and I think by Feb. 1 things are going to fall into place fairly nicely for us.”

McCay’s status uncertain Weis said the eligibility of McCay, who came to KU from Oklahoma, was still up in the air. Normally, a player who transfers is forced to sit out a season before playing — that will be the case with Heaps — but McCay could be eligible immediately because of a hardship waiver he and KU are applying for with the NCAA.

“We are going to file a letter to the NCAA because he was released by Oklahoma on a hardship to Kansas, Kansas State and Missouri,” Weis said. “We will try to get that this year, where he’s alive and ready to go. Usually, with the NCAA, if you have a viable case, they’re not afraid to be open-minded on something like this.” Asked how the uncertainty had affected him, McCay did not seem too bothered. “It was hard going into it,” McCay said. “But being close to home makes it a little bit easier. Hopefully I can play right away. It’s not finalized yet, so we don’t know, but hopefully I can.”

Stubborn son hinders family reconciliation Annie’s Mailbox

Marcy Sugar and Kathy Mitchell

upset, saying she wants him at all the family gatherings. But it’s uncomfortable to be around Mark, because he won’t speak to us. I feel we are being punished for his immaturity. How do we mend this terrible rift? — Sad Mom Dear Sad: You already know that Mark is difficult and stubborn, and he may never “come around.” Excluding him is one way to make things easier for you. But if you want him to be part of the family, you will have to do the heavy lifting and be very forgiving. Tell Mark that you love him and would like to pretend the bathroom construction never happened, if that’s OK with him. Another suggestion would be to have your other children act as intermediaries to effect a reconciliation or to have family gatherings in their homes instead of yours. Dear Annie: Through 30

‘Remodeled’ has narrow audience If television is to be believed, half of the American economy is devoted to fashion. Into this fairy-tale universe comes “Remodeled” (8 p.m., CW), an odd choice for a network show, as it seems too small and niche-marketed even for Bravo. I can understand why CW’s viewers may find vicarious fascination in “America’s Next Top Model” — or at least why they did for the first 50 seasons or so. But “Remodeled” isn’t as much about young models as it is about the management of modeling agencies. Fashion guru Paul Fisher and his comically high-strung entourage have set up “The Network,” a loose connection of agencies in small American cities. They scour the shopping malls and ice cream parlors of America to discover 15-year-olds with the potential to become the next Giselle, or Kate, or Iman. Or whomever. Most of “Remodeled” consists of Fisher descending on his satellite offices and screaming at the staff for running them so badly. With his shaven head and intense manner, one half expects his brain to explode at any given moment. Many of the words he shouts have to be bleeped by the censors. He’s the Gordon Ramsay of regional fashion agencies. How many people really care about the management style of regional fashion agencies? And how many of them belong to CW’s target audience of young women? While Fisher runs around “Remodeled” yelling about The Network, I kept thinking about the management of the network airing this ridiculous show. The folks at CW appear to have lost their audience, their focus and, perhaps, their minds.

The modern-day Western “Justified” (9 p.m., FX) returns for a third season with a bang. Make that several startling bangs, a couple of jabs with an ice pick and the surprisingly deft use of a cast-iron frying pan. Gunslinging U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens (Timothy Olyphant) is doing his best to recover from gunshot wounds, but we know he’ll be dragged back into action. Tonight’s episode features the most coldblooded killer I’ve seen in some time and a deft performance by Neal McDonough (no relation) as a Detroit mob enforcer whose blood runs as icy as his scary blue eyes. Not for the squeamish, “Justified” is among the most violent shows around. But it’s also one of the best.

In my review, I called “Work It” (7:30 p.m., ABC) the worst new comedy of the year. Other critics have declared it possibly the worst show of all time. Something this atrocious doesn’t come along every season. You owe it to yourself to watch it once before ABC wises up and pulls the plug.

Tonight’s other highlights

Twenty-one million “NCIS” (7 p.m., CBS) fans can’t be all wrong. That was the audience for last week’s show.

Cupid’s arrow descends on “Glee” (7 p.m., Fox).

Schmidt’s birthday calls for celebration on “New Girl” (8 p.m., Fox).

Back to school on “Raising Hope” (8:30 p.m., Fox).

Ali’s reputation takes a hit on “Unforgettable” (9 p.m., CBS).

A medical scare for Zeek on “Parenthood” (9 p.m., NBC).

Marcia Gay Harden and Rita Wilson guest-star on “Body of Proof” (9 p.m., ABC).

years of marriage, my husband has cheated on me with many different women. I found out a couple of years ago. At first, I tried to change to please him — my looks, my clothes, my hair, my personal interests — but nothing worked. Once I came to terms with the fact that his “adventures” will not stop and my feelings don’t matter, I decided to plan my departure. When I make my move, it will be with a definite plan, a calm heart and a clear head. I am working, seeing friends and family, and putting away funds for my future. I still love

Cancer (June 21-July 22)  You are unusually playful, even if you do have to work. A partner or an associate might be taken aback by your mood at first. Tonight: Make fun plans. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)  You ponder whether you would like to start a home-based business. In some fashion, you want to revitalize your day-to-day life. Tonight: Stay close to home. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) A special relationship demands much more flexibility than you ever thought you had. Creativity opens up as you try to sleuth out and find the right answer to a situation. Tonight: Ever playful. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)  Be aware of what you have to offer. Decide how much energy you can invest in an emotionally difficult situation. Tonight: How about treating yourself? Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)  Your smiling style attracts many people. You might wonder what would be best to do or say during an important interaction. Talk to a trusted friend or someone who has been in a similar situation. Tonight: Dream it up and make it so.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22Dec. 21)  Sometimes everyone needs to take a personal day, when they do just for themselves. It doesn’t matter if you are indulging a whim or just doing your thing — this is your time for a miniretreat. Tonight: Not to be found. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)  Zero in on your priorities. You know what works for you. If it means separating from the crowd, do just that. Tonight: Where the fun is. Aquarius (Jan. 20Feb. 18)  Taking a stand will separate you from your friends, but it just might need to happen. No matter what is going on, you will assume more responsibility than in the past. Tonight: A must show. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)  You might want to explore ideas through brainstorming or finding someone with more expertise. A meeting also could open a door. Tonight: Wherever you are, the fun is.

my husband, but I no longer need him. I have stopped telling others, because the only “support” I get is in the form of others trashing him, telling me what I ought to do, or laughing about his ultimate demise. This doesn’t help. Those who want to be supportive can say, “I’m sorry you’re going through this. How are you doing?” That would be much appreciated. — Biding My Time in the South Dear Biding: Many people believe trashing the ex is supportive, but it often backfires. Thank you for being the Voice of Experience.

JACQUELINE BIGAR’S STARS For Tuesday, Jan. 17: This year you see life with more vitality than ever. Whether you are an activist or a socialite, you will have the opportunity to bring people together for a specific cause. If you are single, you are likely to meet someone very special during the year. If you are attached, encourage your significant other to join you. SCORPIO is a true friend. 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)  You clearly are developing an interest in a favorite pastime or hobby of a close associate. Adapt your schedule accordingly. Tonight: Up late. Taurus (April 20-May 20)  Others come forward with new insights. Not everything is to your pleasing, but you still should listen. Tonight: Let your imagination put a spin on plans. Gemini (May 21-June 20)  You might want to make an additional effort to break through a barrier or come to an understanding. Once you do, a new type of bond evolves. Tonight: Chill out; put your feet up.

Dear Annie: We have five grown children. One of our sons, “Mark,” obtained a contractor’s license and asked to remodel our kitchen and bathroom so he could show his work to potential customers. He said the only cost to us would be for materials, which he estimated to be about $300. Mark has always been a troubled kid and stubborn to a fault. He especially doesn’t like taking advice or suggestions from others. My husband and I decided to limit his first attempt to the bathroom. We figured the risk would be worth it, because he had asked so little of us in the past. Also, he is a good carpenter and has made some lovely furniture. You probably already guessed what happened. Mark did a terrible job. He ignored our requests and didn’t do what he said he would, and we were left with some major problems. When we asked for an itemized bill, we got one line: “Total amount due, $400.” After we explained our feelings to him, he walked out and hasn’t spoken to us since. That was two years ago. After months of having our cards and gifts returned, my husband and I finally decided to leave him alone and hope he will come around. We didn’t invite him for Thanksgiving, as he ruins the holiday for us. Now our daughter is
