On the final day of the city of Lawrence’s weeklong celebration of Martin Luther King Jr.’s life and legacy, residents gathered in the Kansas Union ballroom to pose the question: Now what?

Renovate Cordley and Pinckney schools. Turn New York School into an early-childhood center. Replace both Sunset Hill and East Heights buildings with new, larger schools designed to meet the growing needs of district programs and student populations. Such projects surfaced Monday night on lists of potential projects for members of a task force studying the future of elementary schools in the Lawrence school district. But such relatively longterm options — ones forwarded for studied, not yet adoption — certainly wouldn’t come without SCHOOLS a price. That’s because members of the Lawrence Elementary School Facility Vision Task Force also are looking for ways to save money. And that would mean balancing projects that might be financed through a potential bond issue against savings that could be achieved by closing a school or two or three. Among schools mentioned for potential closure by groups at various tables Monday night were Wakarusa Valley, Hillcrest, Kennedy and New York, although some plans would consider sparing some of those schools while looking for savings elsewhere. “There will be another group that has a scenario Please see TASK FORCE, page 4A

City wins grant to help build more affordable rental units By Chad Lawhorn firstname.lastname@example.org
The city of Lawrence has won a nearly $500,000 housing grant to help build more affordable rental units in the community. If new foreclosure numbers out of the Douglas County Courthouse are any indication, the timing is good. Foreclosures in 2010 — through November — are up 77 percent compared with the same time period a year ago, according to a new report from the Douglas
County Appraiser’s office. Completed foreclosures through the first 11 months of the year totaled 217, according to the report. As more people lose ownership of their homes, it also has become problematic for some tenants to find affordable rental units. “Finding a unit in Lawrence can be difficult,” said Margene Swarts, assistant director for the city’s development services division. “The rule of thumb is that you don’t pay more than 30 percent of your gross

$475,000 through the state’s Neighborhood Stabilization Program. The city plans to partner with Lawrencebased Tenants to Homeowners to build at least four new rental units.

Rebecca Buford, executive director for Tenants to Homeowners, said her organization is looking for specific locations. The grant money may be used to buy two vacant pieces of ground for new units and to buy two homes that are currently on the foreclosure market. Those homes then could be renovated into rental units. Buford said she’s hoping to build two or three-bedroom units. She hopes rents on the new units will be in the $650 to $750 per month range. “There are a lot of apart-
ments for students in that range,” Buford said. “But I think it is fair to say that what might be a good rental for a student may not be a good rental for a family. If you have a 2-year-old, there are some issues that are a lot bigger deal to you than if you’re a college student.” Tenants for the new units will have to meet state and federal law to moderate income guidelines. At least one of the units will have to reserved for a family that is 50

Lawrence residents of all different races and ages woke up early Monday morning to honor the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr. and to hear Kansas University basketball g reat Wayne Simien speak. King’s mentor, his method and motivation were the topics of Simien’s speech, in which he called for parents to take the time to mentor their children. In a generation that is seeing many broken homes, he said this was a big step toward preparing the next generation for change. “We could very well be overlooking the next instrument of change,” he said. “We could very well be overlooking the next Martin Luther King.”

Simien also spoke of King’s method, which was service to others, and his motivation in his work, which was his dedication to God. The Rev. Paul Winn Jr., an organizer of Lawrence’s Martin Luther King Jr. Day events with Lawrence Ecumenical Fellowship, saw many of these very qualities in Simien. “I think as a mentor there’s an uprightness that comes forth and the inspiration there to become a dreamer,” he said. Marlon Wesley brought his 10-year-old son, Curtis, to the breakfast. Curtis, a basketball player himself, was excited to see Simien, but Wesley said there was a bigger theme to think about. “It’s a good occasion to come out and celebrate the legacy of Dr. King,” he said.
“Lawrence is an interesting place. Everybody comes out; every ethnic background comes out.” Simien said he was honored to be asked to speak at the community breakfast. “Particularly being someone from a younger generation who didn’t experience those types of injustices, but yet, at the same time, as a beneficiary of what he was able to accomplish, it was important to share from my perspective,” he said. “Just to see the diversity here, not only ethnically but also age-wise, was really encouraging to see, particularly some of the youth here, to take time to get up early in the morning — about a man who changed this nation.” — Reporter Brenna Hawley can be reached at 832-6321.

Keynote speaker Dr. Mildred Edwards, executive director of the Kansas African American Affairs Commission, recounted the story of her mother and father gathered around the TV to watch King’s now famous “I have a dream” speech. She said she believed that, were King alive today, he would be proud of the fact that such different people of such varied backgrounds could all sit and gather together.

REJJIN JACKSON, 9, and her father, Ronnell Jackson, follow a song sheet together while 6-year-old Davonte Mator peers over the seats Monday night during a celebration of Martin Luther King Jr. at the Kansas Union. This year’s theme was “Beyond the Dream: Now What?” personally and to pass on that message to the next generation. “For my son, always getting him to remember history helps him to appreciate where he’s at today, too,” Hodison said. “So he (King) opened up those doors, and for me, passing that on to my son, he now has the confidence to walk through those doors.”
But more than anything, speakers provided a message of hope that, one day, King’s dream would be fully realized. “The struggle’s worth it,” Prue said. “Because what is at stake is the future of our children — the future of our nation.” — Reporter Brianne Pfannenstiel can be reached at 832-6314.

‘It’s really good to be able to talk to someone’ 1 | JERUSALEM
Defense minister deserts Labor Party In a shocking move that instantly shook up Israel’s political scene, Defense Minister Ehud Barak defected from his Labor Party Monday, leaving in shambles the iconic movement that founded the country and ruled it invincibly for decades. The move appeared to shore up Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s governing coalition by leading to the resignation of the other Labor members, who had been at loggerheads with the government over stalled peacemaking efforts. But it could weaken the Israeli leader in the long run by reducing his majority and undermining his attempts to portray himself as a centrist leader. Barak, the departing party leader and former prime minister, will stay in the ruling coalition with four other followers in a new party. But Labor’s eight remaining lawmakers — including three ministers — will withdraw.

New hope for hepatitis C cure There’s new hope for an overlooked epidemic: Two powerful drugs are nearing the market that promise to help cure many more people of liver-attacking hepatitis C — even though most who have the simmering infection don’t know it yet. Surprisingly, two-thirds of hepatitis C sufferers are thought to be baby boomers who’ve harbored since their younger, perhaps wilder, years a virus that can take two or three decades to do its damage. What could be a treatment revolution is spurring the government to consider if it’s time to start screening aging baby boomers for hepatitis C, just like they get various cancer checks. Today’s two-drug treatment for hepatitis C cures only about 40 percent of people with the most common variety of the virus, and causes some grueling side effects. Now major studies show that adding a new drug —either Vertex Pharmaceuticals’ telaprevir or Merck & Co.’s boceprevir — can boost those cure rates as high as 75 percent. 3 | BEIRUT
First indictment filed in Hariri killing A U.N. tribunal filed the first indictment Monday in the assassination of former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri, touching off a process many fear could ignite new bloodshed nearly six years after the massive truck bombing along Beirut’s waterfront. The contents of the draft indictment were not revealed and may not become public for weeks as Belgian judge Daniel Fransen decides whether there is enough evidence for a trial. The indictment, confirmed by the international court’s headquarters in the Hague, is the latest turn in a deepening political crisis in Lebanon, where Hezbollah toppled the Western-backed government last week in a dispute over the tribunal. 4 | ARIZONA
Husband: Giffords smiled, gave neck rub The husband of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords says his wife’s condition has improved so much that she has been able to smile and give him a neck rub as he has kept a near-constant vigil at her hospital bedside. The interactions with astronaut Mark Kelly are new signs of Giffords’ impressive progress in recovering from a gunshot wound to the head at a political event nine days ago. Giffords still cannot speak, because of a breathing tube in her throat. Such encounters indicate higher levels of functioning, implying that “she’s recognizing him and interacting, perhaps in an old familiar way with him,” said Dr. Michael Lemole. Dr. Randall Friese said Kelly also told doctors he saw Giffords smile. He said sometimes people see what they want to see, but that “if he says she’s smiling, I buy it.” 5 | FRANCE
Nun says praying to John Paul II helps A French nun says she felt new inner strength and vitality as her Parkinson’s disease suddenly disappeared in a recovery the Vatican attributes to the miraculous intercession of Pope John Paul II. Sister Marie Simon-Pierre, who works at a French maternity hospital, told reporters in a rare appearance Monday that she felt “reborn” after praying to the late pope. Pope Benedict XVI has set May 1 as the date for his predecessor’s beatification, a step toward possible sainthood. Church authorities studied Simon-Pierre’s 2005 cure and determined it was inexplicable and due to the intercession of John Paul, who also suffered from Parkinson’s. Benedict approved the miracle last week, paving the way for the beatification.

PREGNANCY CARE CENTER ASSISTANT DIRECTOR TAMARA JARRON, FRONT, searches for a proper storage container for a handful of baby clothes as she and volunteer Renate Rea organize donations in a storage room at the Riverfront Mall. When the center relocates to a larger space so it can expand services, donated clothes and other items for babies will be incorporated into a new “Baby Store” where clients will be able to shop with “Baby Bucks” distributed by the center after a client participates in one or several educational programs relative to healthy parenting.
Pregnancy Care Center offers variety of services By Karrey Britt firstname.lastname@example.org
The Pregnancy Care Center of Lawrence provides services to single mothers or women who are facing unplanned pregnancies. It provides everything from a pregnancy test to counseling to baby formula. Ashley McMurphy, 25, of Lawrence, began using the center Campbell about a month after her 16month-old son, Elijah, was born. The single mother, who works as a certified medical assistant at Brandon Woods Retirement Community and is attending Johnson County
Community College to become a nurse, said the agency has provided items such as diapers, wipes, shampoos, formula and clothes for free. But, more importantly, it has provided counseling. “We just sat and discussed things that were going on in my life, and I talked a little about religion with them,” she said. “It’s really good to be able to talk to someone.” McMurphy considers former director Barbara Watkins and new director Sarah Campbell as friends. She can drop by the center at any time, and often stays for two hours or more. “One time I spent four hours there,” McMurphy said. “We talked, prayed and ate a little dinner together.”
Building such a relationship is not unusual. Campbell said that’s what she likes about her work. “We get to know them and their children, and we get to find out what their needs are, which has helped us find some direction,” she said. Campbell said she has watched one client turn her life around — going from homelessness and an abusive relationship to living in a house and having a stable family. In an interview, Campbell answered questions about the center.

Soccer fans start up podcast despite distance Lawrencian, Liverpudlian broadcast weekly episodes about English Premier League team By Joe Preiner email@example.com
There may be an ocean between them, but they’re united by one passion: football. Or soccer, depending on which side of that ocean you’re on. Lawrence resident Eric Howell and friend Ped Mcpartland of Liverpool, England, have been working together since last June to build and brand their own sports podcast following Everton, a team in the English Premier League. The two football fans first contacted each other via Twitter and from there hatched the plan
to start a podcast, called the Followtonians, dedicated to the club. It wasn’t easy in the beginning, because of a lack of equipment and a lack of experience with recording and audio editing. “We’re doing it off two PCs with Skype,” Mcpartland said. “We are literally running this off of two cans and a piece of string. In terms of technology, that’s what we have.” But by spending their own money, they’ve been able to slowly upgrade their equipment and improve the quality of their episodes, of which they’ve now recorded 29.

Team effort Short was among 30 scientists who flew to Suriname on Aug. 15 to search for unknown plants and animals.

After landing in Suriname’s capital, the group traveled to Kwamalasamutu to ask permission of the indigenous community’s

If I see something and I don’t know what it is, then I have a good indication that it’s something that no one has seen.” — Andrew Short chief to collect specimens on its land. Short said the goals of the expedition included doing an inventory of the area to develop a baseline of plants and animals; determining how the information could be applied, such as promoting eco-tourism; and assessing the impact the indigenous community has on the land and its animals and recommending changes, if needed. Once permission was gained, Short, 11 other scientists, 12 Surinamese students and eight to 10 Amerindians loaded their gear into 10 large motorized canoes and headed to a camp deeper into the rainforest. Short said the students and scientists focused on finding aquatic insects in small streams, marshes and holes in the ground where water collected, while the Amerindians helped guide the researchers, cut trails and build camps. Short said he and the others used tea strainers and nets to gather beetles from the water and an aspirator to suck the insects out of the water and deposit them into a vial filled with ethanol. At night, they would clean the samples, write labels and keep a running list of species
collected. The group collected more than 4,000 specimens during the trip. “I estimated we collected 85 species in the field,” he said, “but I think it will be more than 100.” Short said one of his most interesting finds was an inselberg, a granite outcrop that rises from the forest. “There’s a kind of aquatic beetle and insect community that only lives on these rock outcrops. We were fortunate enough toLAWRENCE find one, and it had a little bit of water — just enough to find a few species that are new to science and may contribute to our understanding of evolution and biogeography,” he said.
Unspoiled rainforest Once he returned to KU on Sept. 12, Short and his team began mounting and labeling specimens for the university’s entomology collection. Some specimens will go into a frozen tissue collection for use as DNA samples. Short said he will study the specimens for about a year and then write a detailed report about what was found at each site, which will be compiled into a small book that provides baseline data. Short, who also is curator of KU’s Biodiversity Institute, said he plans to go back to the rainforest in September to collect more specimens. “Suriname has an almost entirely intact forest — except for a little bit along the coast where most of the people live and a little bit of mining,” he said. “There really exists a huge opportunity for this country to preserve in wholesale its entire biodiversity. There is no loss yet, which is really rare for most developing countries.”

for closing Cordley,” said Brad Finkeldei, member of a group that reached consensus on recommending closure of both Wakarusa Valley and Hillcrest. “You will see that.” Such considerations will come during the next two weeks. That’s when Finkeldei and leaders of three other task force subcommittees will work with consulting architects and district administrators to determine just how effective such scenarios might be.
Battling budget woes The task force has until the end of February — a month later than originally intended — to come up with recommendations for a plan to handle the district’s elementary schools during the next five years and beyond. The goal is to reflect “varied community and educational values” given “the restraints of current and anticipated district resources.” By the end of June, the district expects to be forced into cutting at least $1 million from its budget, because of state cuts. The total could swell to $4 million for 2011-12, administrators say. “The task force is not going to solve the entire problem for us, but it’s a significant piece they have to help us with solving, a significant piece of our problem,” said Rick Doll, district superintendent. Task force members already have spent months studying several aspects of elementary planning: physical conditions and limitations
of the schools themselves; potential operational efficiencies; research and “best practices” for meeting educational needs; and defining “neighborhood schools” and their relationship to city planning. Now they’re taking their research and using it to guide recommendations for potential school consolidations, program relocations and other moves that would be intended to both save money and build a strong foundation for success in the years ahead. “We need to be looking five, 10 years down the road,” said Rich Minder, board president and co-chair of the task force.
Time to meet again Such vision will be focused Jan. 31, when task force members will be scheduled to reconvene for a 7 p.m. meeting at district headquarters, 110 McDonald Drive. That’s when members will learn whether the “scenarios” they’d entertained Monday night might actually serve as efficient and effective solutions for the district overall. Scenarios emerging Monday night included potential school closures, boundary changes, program shifts, school renovations, classroom additions, new construction and other suggestions.
Administrators and consultants will study the options in search of consensus from among the two dozen task force members, whose final document will be used by board members in their deliberations in the weeks, months and years ahead. “I’ve been so impressed that this task force is having these unpleasant conversations that have strained this community for so many years,” said Scott Morgan, a board member and task force co-chair. “Whatever the conclusion is, it will be invaluable — not only to the board, but, most importantly, to the students.” — Schools reporter Mark Fagan can be reached at 832-7188.

Board of Regents pleased with budget proposals Map lists resources By John Milburn Associated Press Writer
TOPEKA — While their counterparts in the public school system have found plenty to complain about in Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback’s budget proposals, officials in the higher education system are feeling relatively lucky. Leaders of the Kansas Board of Regents say higher education did not take as big a hit as it might have in a year in which the state has to close a $550 million budget shortfall. “After recent and severe budget cuts, and a continued trend of state disinvestment in higher education, we’re very pleased the governor is advocating for no reductions to the system’s base budget,” said Regents Chairman Gary Sherrer. In his budget proposal, the Republican Brownback is not calling for cuts in university operating budgets and wants more state investment in key research missions.
After recent and severe budget cuts, and a continued trend of state disinvestment in higher education, we’re very pleased the governor is advocating for no reductions to the system’s base budget.” — Regents Chairman Gary Sherrer By contrast, public schools would see significant cuts in their general operating budgets. Brownback’s budget would cut the base aid the state’s 293 school districts receive by $232 per student, a reduction caused by the end of federal stimulus funds used to prop up education budgets. The K-12 cut also reflects the higher costs to the state for support of the teacher pension program and aid to a number of districts making bond payments on new facility construction. Sherrer and other university leaders welcomed the news and said they were eager to work with Brown-
back and the new Legislature to build on the proposal and other academic goals. Kansas has 32 public higher education institutions, including seven four-year universities and 19 community colleges. Kansas University Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little said Brownback’s proposal was “the first step” in the process and that the university would work with the governor and legislators on the proposed investments. “And while it is an encouraging step, we cannot make assumptions about funding until the budget is passed and signed into law,” she said. “Stabilizing funding for higher education would certainly
for crisis situations
aid our efforts to meet the state’s needs for an educated workforce and for research that creates jobs.” Brownback’s proposal calls for $105 million in research investments. The state would contribute half of the amount in general fund revenues, while the universities would be required to reprogram existing dollars or raise an equal amount from private sources. Kansas is trying to secure two major research projects. Working with the Department of Homeland Security, Kansas State University is involved with the design and construction of the new National Bio- and Agro Defense Facility, which would replace an aging federal animal research facility at Plum Island, N.Y. The $451 million lab will be built near the Kansas State campus in Manhattan and conduct research on deadly plant and animal contagions, including foot-and-mouth disease.

from around the world isn’t easy for Howell. He spends a good portion of his Saturdays watching games on his laptop. “There are no creature comforts in being an Everton fan in Lawrence, Kansas,” Howell said. Howell and Mcpartland spend their Thursday evenings, or Friday mornings in the UK, putting the weekly show together. The sixhour time difference makes things more difficult, but neither fan minds. “It seems like I’m on American time a lot of the time,” Mcpartland joked. The duo’s affinity for football has given them a chance to talk with former professional players and coaches as well as authors, media per-
sonalities and fans from around the globe. The show has gotten even more publicity recently thanks to an exclusive interview with U.S. soccer star Landon Donovan. Donovan, who played for Everton while on loan from his MLS team, the Los Angeles Galaxy, made the decision not to return to Europe late in 2010. For the new podcasters, the opportunity was a golden one and was taken advantage of using social media. The podcast’s Twitter followers encouraged the interview. “We didn’t want to look like we were begging for ourselves,” Mcpartland said. “So we got other people to beg on our behalf.” That strategy paid off and landed the Followtonians a world-exclusive interview. “He almost seemed like he was more excited to explain
his decision than we were to talk to him,” Howell said. “It was pretty crazy.” That episode has gotten more than 14,000 hits since its release in late December. The high volume far exceeded the average 2,000 views their other episodes had netted. Quotes from the interview also made their way into Liverpool newspaper headlines as well as a story in the New York Post.
Football wives The time Mcpartland and Howell dedicate to the podcast has been an adjustment for their wives, too. Tracie Howell said she’s become an Everton fan through cont i n u e d ex p o s u re to t h e team. She’s worked her way into the podcast as well, lending her vocal stylings to the show’s introduction. Mc pa r t l a n d ’s w i fe i s

did the actual mapping and geocoding of the map. The project, which underwent several changes during its formation, took about eight months, she said. When the project took off, Yocum said she was surprised by how many emergency resources Lawrence has. “I did not realize there were so many agencies available to residents of the city, and I think it’s just a great resource for people of all economic statuses with the downturn and everything,” Yocum said. “I think this is a great resource for everybody to be able to use when they need it.”

The center’s Friendship Room, which is located in a large closet area, needs more space. The board has identified a couple of places. It plans to offer a new nationally acclaimed curriculum called “Earn While You Learn.” The concept is that as women learn parenting skills, they earn something for their efforts. So, they will earn “baby bucks” that they can spend in the Friendship
Room. The curriculum — a newer version of what they already offer — has proven to stop the cycles of violence, child abuse and other things that happen when women don’t have the resources they need to parent their children. Q: How can the community help? A: People can donate money and/or baby items. They always need baby clothing up to size 2 toddler. To donate or volunteer, contact the center at 842-6499 or email@example.com. The website is pcclawrence.org. The center also is having the fundraiser “Meet the Duggars” from 3 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. Feb. 13 at the Holiday Inn Lawrence. The Arkansas family, which has a TLC show, “19 Kids & Counting,” will be special guests. There will be a children’s activity room and refreshments. Prices range from $15 for single tickets to $100 for VIP tickets.

MARTIN LUTHER KING JR. DAY
Nation reaches out, reflects on nonviolence PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA PAINTS colorful cartoon apples in a student lunchroom at the Stuart Hobson Middle School in Washington as he observes the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday by participating in a community service project on Monday. Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated in 1968 in Memphis, Tenn.

A T L A N T A — The nation observed the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday on Monday with thousands volunteering for service projects and more reflecting on his lessons of nonviolence and civility in the week following the shootings in Arizona. Six people were killed in Tucson and Democratic Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords is fighting for her life. The violent outburst was a reminder to many gathered at King’s former church in Atlanta that the Baptist preacher’s message remained relevant four decades after his own untimely death at the hands of an assassin. Attorney General Eric Holder praised him as “our nation’s greatest drum major of peace” and said the Jan. 8 bloodshed was a call to recommit to King’s values of nonviolence, tolerance, compassion and justice. “Last week a senseless rampage in Tucson reminded us that more than 40 years after Dr. King’s own tragic death, our struggle to eradicate violence and to promote peace goes on,” Holder said. President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle volunteered to paint for a service project at a middle school in Washington’s Capitol Hill. He urged Americans to get out into their communities — a step he suggested would

have special meaning following the shootings. “After a painful week where so many of us were focused on the tragedy, it’s good for us to remind ourselves of what this country is all about,” he said. National and local politicians joined members of the King family at Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta to mark what would have been the civil rights icon’s 82nd birthday. Members of the King family also laid a wreath at the tombs of King and his widow, Coretta Scott King, on the 25th anniversary of the federal holiday established to honor the 1964 Nobel Peace Prize winner. The largely African-American audience of about 2,000 gathered at Ebenezer — where King preached from
1960 until his death in 1968 — included parents and children, members of the clergy, politicians and foot soldiers of the civil rights movement. Two of the Kings’ four children, Martin Luther King III and the Rev. Bernice King attended Monday’s ceremony. Their brother, Dexter King, was unable to attend the service because he is recovering from injuries he received in a car crash last year. Yolanda King, the eldest of the King siblings, died in 2007. Bernice King is also president-elect of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, which her father co-founded in 1957. Rep. John Lewis of Georgia, who worked with King during the civil rights movement, issued a renewed call for Americans to unite in
peace and love as King preached during his lifetime. “If Dr. King could speak to us today, he would tell us that it does not matter how much we disapprove of another person’s point of view, there is never a reason to deny another human being the respect he or she deserves,” Lewis said. The Rev. Raphael Warnock, pastor of Ebenezer, called for members of Congress to show solidarity during the State of the Union Address this month. Quoting the Bible and Abraham Lincoln, Warnock said, “A house divided against itself cannot stand.” “Maybe after Arizona what our children need to see is us sitting together,” Warnock said.
Ryun aims to help congressman seek presidency By Philip Elliott Associated Press Writer
WASHINGTON — An independent campaign to draw GOP Rep. Mike Pence into the 2012 presidential race is under way, with a veteran of the Reagan White House launching a petition drive on Monday urging him to enter the primary contests. Ralph Benko, a deputy counsel to Ronald Reagan, announced the America’s President Committee to encourage a Pence-forpresident bid. Former Rep.
Jim Ryun, R-Kan., is also helping the campaign to collect signatures from conservatives and tea party activists. “Mike Pence extraordinarily exemplifies the optimistic, pro-growth, projob creation Reagan-Kemp wing of the GOP. Grassroots conservatives, Republicans, the tea party and populists are looking for a man or woman of principle who can champion and unite the newly energized and engaged citizenry,” Benko said. “Mike
Pence is the best choice to lead us into a new era of peace and prosperity.” Jack Kemp, who died in 2009, was a Republican congressman and vice presidential candidate. He was perhaps best known as an economic conservative who advocated low taxes and lowering barriers to supplying goods and services. Pence, of Indiana, stepped down from his post in the House Republican leadership. He has considered a White House run or perhaps a campaign for
Kansas canine program looking for recruits By Michael Pearce The Wichita Eagle
WICHITA — Officer Allie is retiring after a long and productive law enforcement career. Her bosses hope to find a replacement that’s equally skilled at tracking bad guys, finding hidden evidence and greeting hundreds of school kids with a wildly wagging tail. The 9-year-old Labrador retriever is one of several that will soon retire from the Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks canine program. The agency is asking the public to donate dogs to be paired with two game wardens. Both will soon spend about two weeks in Indiana undergoing special training. “We’re looking for Labs around 1 year old and with good drive,” said Jason Barker, a game warden who helped start the program in 2003. “A lot of times that’s the dog somebody wants to give up because the dog’s always digging or chewing. It’s that drive that makes them trainable and good in the field.” Game warden Brian Hanzlick, Allie’s handler, said she came from a Russell County home. “She chewed up everything in sight and was really highstrung,” he said. “She just needed a job and she’s done it pretty well.” The department made a similar request for dogs in 2003. The result was a starting canine force of five dogs. Financial contributions were also solicited to help fund the program and are still accepted. Wardens say it has been well worth the time, money and dogs donated.

I joke that if Allie could drive I’d never have to leave the house.” Barker said dogs and wardens will learn to work together on tracking, wildlife detection and evidence recovery during their training in Indiana. The two game wardens chosen for the program were picked from about seven applicants. Three dogs will accompany them to Indiana.

governor. One of his party’s strongest advocates for conservative policies, Pence is among the GOP’s most outspoken critics of President Barack Obama. Should Pence enter the contest, he would face an uphill climb. Few Americans have heard of him and better known potential Republican candidates — like former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, or former Alaska governor Sarah Palin — already have organized fundraising operations.
Palin explains ’blood libel’ comment By Larry Margasak Associated Press Writer
W A S H I N G T O N — Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, defending herself against criticism following the Tucson, Ariz., shootings, said Monday that she used the term “blood libel” to describe comments made by those who falsely tried to link conservatives to the assassination attempt against Rep. Gabrielle Giffords. Speaking out for the first time since she used the term in a video, Palin said on Fox’s Sean Hannity show that the term referred to those “falsely accused of having blood on their hands.” Some Jewish groups strongly protested her use of the term, which historically was used to accuse Jews of using blood of Christians in religious rituals. “I think the critics again were using anything that they could gather out of that statement,“ she said. ”You can spin up anything out of anybody’s statements that are released and use them against the person who is making the statement.” Palin, a potential Republican presidential candidate in 2012, said the criticism won’t stop her from speaking out and accusing Democrats of taking the country in the wrong direction. “They can’t make us sit down and shut up,” she said.
Happy New Year From Our Home to Yours
Palin said her political action committee’s use of crosshairs to identify targeted congressional districts for Republican pickups was not original and has been used by Democrats. As she spoke, a Democratic map was shown on the screen with circular targets of districts Democrats wanted to win. The former governor said the crosshairs graphic was taken down by the PAC’s hired graphic artist after the criticism began. “I don’t think that was inappropriate,” she said. The shooting on Jan. 8 killed six and wounded 13, including Giffords. Her district was among those in the Palin site’s crosshairs. Palin insisted that she has “repeated over and over my condemnation of violence.” She said she was frustrated that conservatives who responded to false accusations —blaming them for the shootings — have become part of the story. Asked why she was singled out for criticism, Palin, speaking from her hometown of Wasilla, said, “I know that a lot of those on the left hate my message and they will do all they can to stop me because they don’t like the message.“ Palin added, “I receive a lot of death threats. My children do.”

After monthlong protests, Tunisia announces new government By Bouazza Ben Bouazza and Elaine Ganley Associated Press Writer
T U N I S , T U N I S I A — Tunisia took a step toward democracy and reconciliation Monday, promising to free political prisoners and opening its government to opposition forces long shut out of power — but the old guard held onto the key posts, angering protesters.

Grand jury probes Edwards’ spending By Nedra Pickler and Mike Baker Associated Press Writer
W A S H I N G T O N — A federal criminal investigation targeting John Edwards is examining how much the two-time presidential candidate knew about money used to cover up his extramarital affair and out-of-wedlock child and whether other practices of his violated campaign f inance laws, people involved in the case have told The AssociatThe case largely stems edAPress. fedfrom money eral spent to keep grand jury in Edwards’ Raleigh, mistress, N.C., is Rielle Hunter, sifting in hiding along records and testiwith former mony campaign aide involving several Andrew political Young. organizations and individuals connected to Edwards to determine if the former North Carolina senator and 2004 vice presidential nominee broke any laws. A recently issued subpoena focuses on a web of these Edwardsaffiliated groups, according to subpoena details provided to the AP that offer a glimpse behind the closed doors of the investigation. The case largely stems from money spent to keep Edwards’ mistress, Rielle Hunter, in hiding along with former campaign aide Andrew Young, who initially claimed paternity so Edwards could continue pursuing the White House without the taint of the affair. Investigators are looking chiefly at whether funds paid to Hunter and Young — from outside political groups and Edwards’ political donors — should have been considered campaign donations since they arguably aided his presidential bid, according to several people involved in the case who spoke on condition of anonymity because of the ongoing probe. They’re also looking closely at whether any entities linked to Edwards operated illegally. While it could not be learned if prosecutors have found violations of a specific statute, federal election laws require disclosure of the money spent on campaigns for federal offices, limit the amounts of such donations and prohibit the conversion of campaign funds to personal use. Edwards’ attorney Wade Smith would not discuss specifics but said, “We do not believe there is evidence that John has violated any election laws.” The investigation has been led by George Holding, the U.S. attorney in Raleigh appointed by P resident George W. Bush, with help from FBI and IRS agents and Justice Department attorneys from Washington.
security forces struggle to contain violent reprisals, shootings and looting three days after the country’s longtime president fled under pressure from the streets. “We’re afraid that the president has left, but the powersthat-be remain,” said Hylel Belhassen, a 51-year-old insurance salesman. Even before the new government was announced Monday, security forces fired tear gas to repel demonstrators who see the change of power as Tunisia’s first real chance at democracy. President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali fled Friday to Saudi Arabia after a month of protests over unemployment
and corruption led to his downfall after 23 years in power. The government announced Monday that 78 civilians have died in the month of unrest — an announcement that underlined the depth of the violence in the usually placid Mediterranean tourist destination. Under autocratic Ben Ali, Tunisia was effectively under one-party rule. The new government named Monday includes three ministers from the opposition — a first in Tunisia — but members of Ben Ali’s RCD party held on to most of the jobs, including the most important posts. Security forces have gotten
an image makeover in the public mind. The oncefeared police have been fighting snipers and armed groups widely believed to be Ben Ali loyalists. Nearby nations, meanwhile, faced a wave of selfimmolation attempts Monday, apparently influenced by the desperate Tunisian man who set himself on fire a month ago, sparking the protests that brought his president down. In Tunisia, hundreds of stranded tourists were still being evacuated and foreign airlines gradually resumed flights that were halted when Tunisian airspace closed

Notable ● Goldman Sachs Group Inc. has prohibited U.S. investors from participating in a private offering expected to raise up to $1.5 billion for social networking site Facebook, citing widespread media coverage that could run afoul of securities guidelines. The investment bank said Monday it decided to restrict the fund to prospective shareholders in Asia and Europe because it determined that the news coverage could be inconsistent with the laws that govern private placements. In a statement, Goldman Sachs said it made the decision on its own and “believes this is the most prudent path to take.” Although Goldman Sachs did not specify which laws it was concerned about, the Securities and Exchange Commission has guidelines that regulate the amount of solicitation and publicity that is allowed in connection with a private placement.

involved in major decisions. Chief Operating Officer Tim Cook will be responsible for all day-to-day operations. Cook, who is seen as a logical eventual successor to Jobs, is no stranger to the role. He ran the Cupertino, Calif.-based company for two months in 2004 while Jobs battled pancreatic cancer, and again in 2009 during Jobs’ most recent medical leave. Apple ran smoothly then, releasing a new version of the iPhone and updated laptops on schedule. Since Cook began with Apple in 1998, he has been credited with tuning Apple’s manufacturing process to solve chronic product delays and supply problems. But Cook’s presence at the helm may not be enough to cushion the blow to Apple’s shares. The company is likely wrapping up work on a second generation of the iPad and competition among tablet makers is expected to heat up this year and next. In 2010, investors seemingly grew accustomed to Jobs’ extreme thinness, focusing instead on the early success of the iPad with consumers. But they may still fear that without Jobs, Apple could lose its early lead, or in the longer run cede its role as the high-end, high-design trend setter of the PC and consumer electronics industries. “Steve is clearly still the visionary behind Apple,” said Tim Bajarin of Creative Strategies, who has been covering Apple for decades. “I think investors have to take a hard look at where Apple is and where Apple will continue to go given the fact that it has incredibly strong leadership. All the products that Apple’s going to bring out in the next two years are already in the pipeline,” he said.

amid the upheaval. Besides the 78 civilians killed in the monthlong protests, Interior Minister Ahmed Friaa said 94 civilians were injured — a jump from the previous official death toll of 23. The new figure does not include members of security forces, some of whom also died, Friaa said. The troubles have reverberated to the tourist-based Tunisian economy, which Friaa said has lost $2 billion because of the unrest. Resort towns like Hammamet are boarded up and under police control, said Norredine Gohdbani, who worked in a restaurant there and has returned to
stay with his family in Tunis. Friaa told reporters that 85 police stations have been damaged around the country, along with 13 town halls, 43 banks, 11 factories and 66 stores or shopping centers. Streets of the capital appeared calmer Monday but police were posted on most corners in downtown Tunis, with busloads of forces waiting to deploy. Prime Minister Mohamed Ghannouchi offered a number of concessions to try to appease Ben Ali’s critics, while maintaining the ruling party’s dominance of government and public posts around the country.

Eco devo efforts Trimming the number of state economic development agencies may be a good way to tighten the state budget.
onsolidating a couple of state economic development agencies under the Department of Commerce could be a valid budget-cutting strategy for Kansas. In fact, Gov. Sam Brownback was not the first to propose folding the duties of the Kansas Technology Enterprise Corp. and Kansas Inc. into Commerce. Gov. Kathleen Sebelius made the same suggestion two years ago as a way to trim the state’s struggling budget. In an effort to promote economic development in the state, a number of state agencies have been created over the last 25 years. Although their creation made sense at the time, there is reason now to think that the state may benefit from a more unified effort to attract businesses in high-tech and bioscience fields. If the state can reduce administrative costs by folding KTEC and Kansas Inc. into the Commerce Department without losing the key benefits those agencies have brought to the state, everyone wins. Brownback has indicated that eliminating the two agencies will save the state about $2 million in the coming fiscal year. In the current fiscal year, KTEC and Kansas Inc. are receiving about $7.7 million from the Economic Development Initiatives Fund, which receives proceeds from the Kansas Lottery. While a $2 million cut certainly is significant for those agencies, it doesn’t totally eliminate funding for programs they operated. When Gov. Sebelius made her consolidation proposal, she and others were particularly frustrated with the lack of accountability at KTEC, as well as the arrogance of KTEC leaders and some board members. The agency was working with state money but wasn’t willing to fully account for how that money was being spent. In fact, at one point, Sebelius became so frustrated that she proposed simply eliminating KTEC funding from the budget. Placing the agency under the Department of Commerce should address any transparency concerns. It also should give the state an opportunity to better coordinate the various economic development efforts being pursued on its behalf. The state has done an admirable job of pursuing high-tech and bioscience ventures, but consolidating agencies may allow it to maintain its record of success while cutting duplication and administrative costs. Faced with the current budget situation, the consolidation of these agencies may be one of the easier choices the governor and the Legislature have to make.
U.S. must match China in classroom Chinese President Hu Jintao is coming to Washington amid much gnashing of teeth over whether Chinese power is growing as U.S. might wanes. The Chinese military clearly feels empowered. Beijing has gotten more aggressive with Japan and Southeast Asian nations over claims to disputed territory. China has also failed to rein in its ally, nuclear-armed North Korea, whose bizarre behavior threatens the region. Moreover, just before Secretary of Defense Robert M. Gates arrived in Beijing last week in hopes of improving ties with Chinese military officials, China test-flew a stealth fighter jet, clearly proclaiming its new muscle. Yet, if we are concerned about competition from China, we should look beyond Beijing’s growing military — and economic — might. Far better to focus on China’s progress, and our lag, in educating our future work force. That’s where the real Chinese challenge lies. After all, despite China’s military growth, its Asian overreach is pushing its neighbors to ally more closely with Washington. And despite the current recession, the U.S. economy is still powerful and innovative. But we are failing to produce the educated manpower we need to compete in a globalized world.
Notable scores Consider this: In 2009, a representative sample of students from Shanghai outscored their counterparts from 65 countries in reading, math, and science in a respected test given by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, an organization of the world’s 34 leading industrial powers. The United States scored 17th in reading, 29th in math, and 23rd in science. “We have to see this as a wakeup call,” Secretary of Education Arne Duncan told the New York Times.

Far better to focus on China’s progress, and our lag, in educating our future workforce. That’s where the real Chinese challenge lies.” True, there are problems in comparing a cross-section of 15year-olds from China’s most highly developed city, population 20 million, with broader samples from other entire countries, including the United States. Yet the results — which OECD administrators say they believe were legitimate — should still jolt us. They reflect a Chinese culture of education that stresses long classroom hours and far less time spent on extracurricular activities. If the Chinese can produce these results in Shanghai, it’s obvious they can reproduce them in many more cities in coming decades.
Motivated students I saw the product of China’s educational drive when I spoke with students in May on the campus of Beijing’s Tsinghua University — the Chinese equivalent of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Among them were a future biologist, economist, journalist and engineer. What struck me was their selfconfidence and optimism, and their awareness of the world. They all spoke excellent English; some wanted to do graduate work in the United States, but all said they would return home for their careers.
These students saw education as a path to wealth in China’s materialistic society. But many also said they studied to fulfill the expectations of their parents, who had sacrificed much to put them through school and university. They saw this as a filial duty in a culture that traditionally has put a high value on education. The Chinese model, which produces stressed-out students and still involves much rote learning, may not fit here. But its rigor provides a sharp contrast to a U.S. system that is failing to produce the educated workforce we need to compete globally. “A generation ago,” Duncan writes in Foreign Affairs, “the United States had the highest proportion of college graduates in the world. Now, it ranks fifth among developed nations and is tied for ninth … among those aged 25-34.”
Dismal U.S. statistics The statistics for high school education are even more dismal: About one-fourth of U.S. ninthgraders fail to graduate secondary school within four years, Duncan says. Among the 34 OECD countries, only Mexico, Spain, Turkey, and New Zealand have higher dropout rates than the United States does. And when it comes to fluency in foreign languages — which is vital for a globally competitive workforce — the U.S. system is a loser. In Europe, students start learning foreign languages in kindergarten. As for China, some studies project it will soon have the largest number of English speakers in the world among its population, if India doesn’t get there first. Of course, the United States has many excellent public and private high schools, and still has the world’s best universities. But economic pressures are driving our cities and states to slash budgets for schools and colleges, just as China pours funds into its universities to make them world-

Sputnik moment? “Fifty years later, our generation’s Sputnik moment is back,” President Obama told a college audience in North Carolina in December, referring to the Soviet Union’s surprise 1957 launching of a satellite that spurred an explosion of U.S. investment in math and science teaching. This is a theme he probably will stress in his State of the Union address. Yet too few Americans remember Sputnik, which occurred when the country was still able to unite around common goals. And fewer still are familiar with those shocking OECD stats about Shanghai. Those figures should jolt us. The nations with the best-educated workers will lead the global economy. China gets it.

class and draw the best talent from abroad. And it gets worse. This year, says Duncan, China will award more doctorates in engineering and the sciences than any other country. Until this year, that distinction was held by the United States. So, when Hu visits Washington, members of Congress should focus at least as much on China’s brainpower as on its military power. If they want to compete with Beijing, they should consider the funding of math, science, and language teaching, and of basic research at universities, to be as important as funding military hardware. And they, along with President Obama, should come up with new ways to inspire students and parents about the value of education. Chinese parents and students revere education in a way that too many of our adults and young people no longer do.

Societal factors To the editor: In the Jan. 13 Journal-World, Charles Krauthammer (“Tucson shooting not driven by politics”) argues that mental illness alone caused the Tucson tragedy, and that it is “reckless” for Paul Krugman, among other writers, to link the tragedy to anything beyond one man’s isolated psychosis. Krauthammer is correct that the killer is mentally ill. Psychiatric symptoms, however, are shaped by the social and political context of the day. In Freud’s time women were treated for fainting spells, false pregnancies, “hysterical paralysis” and other symptoms that are rarely, if ever, seen today. What we do see are life-threatening eating disorders (mainly in girls and women) and out of control aggression (mainly in boys and men). Individual pathology cannot be understood in isolation from the broader system in which it is embedded. What is “reckless” is to pretend that there is no link between right-
wing extremism and growing violence. Even more reckless is pretending that we can reduce the number of tragic shootings without standing up to the NRA and its allies. Harriet Lerner, Steve Lerner, clinical psychologists, Lawrence
Arts funding To the editor: Why should government support the arts is a good question. The number one reason why the government should cut the arts in Kansas is a simple one, because compared to states like New York, California, Illinois, Washington, Colorado, Texas and others, we have next to no arts. The Kansas Arts Commission’s budget has been cut so many times within the past several years that it is hard for them to fund anything, but yet they still do. Some local residents have actually benefited from these grants. Art has directly been influenced by what is going on in the times, representing world governments, polit-
being blamed for the Tucson, Arizona, shootings. Gov. Palin is even being criticized for the use of the term “blood libel” as if she, the politician most supportive of Israel and Jewish interests, is anti-Semitic. It is a tribute to the absolute mania of her opponents that these charges could have any currency even among her extreme leftist critics. Jared Loughner, the accused murderer of six American citizens, including a 9-year-old child, is, simply put, a lunatic. The mad fantasies and distortions of reality that swept through his mind and finally motivated him into action will forever remain unfathomable to sane human beings. To advance the notion that Palin and her fellow conservatives have so polluted the pool of American politics that Loughner was ignited through an apparently mystical process is to prove that liberals will seize any opportunity to smear their political opponents. The logical To the editor: extension of this argument leads to Sarah Palin and others on the right the creation of a society devoid of critical of our wayward drift are now any opposition to leftist ideology, a ical and religious views. If one would like an example, one would only have to research the names of Pollock, Warhol, Monet, Van Gogh, Michelangelo, Da Vinci, Traza, Hugo, Shakespeare and Bach. During the Depression, the arts were one of the things that the U.S. government chose to pump money into to revitalize the economy. Let us not take a step backwards over $700,000. Before you support Gov. Brownback’s proposal to cut funding for the KAC, think about this for a second: Summer Youth Theatre, The Lawrence Children’s Choir, Art in the Park, Final Fridays, The Spencer, Murphy Hall, The Lied Center, The Lawrence Arts Center, Kansas Public Radio, Free State and Lawrence High fine arts.

Wichita State grad designs postage stamp WICHITA — A Wichita State University graduate student has designed a U.S. postage stamp that celebrates neon. Michael Flechtner was asked to do the neon stamp — the first of its kind — after U.S. Postal Service Art Director Phil Jordan saw Flechtner’s work hanging at the Museum of Neon Art in Los Angeles. The stamp, which includes neon fireworks, will be released March 25. Flechtner, 59, says he was told the theme should be “Celebrate” and fireworks seemed like a natural representation of the theme. The Wichita Eagle reported Monday that Flechtner, originally from Tiffin, Ohio, graduated from Wichita State in 1984 with a master’s degree in fine arts.

Jayhawks put on quite a show
Morrises lead ‘beautiful’ showing By Gary Bedore email@example.com
WACO , T EXAS — It’s tough to find the right words to describe the ultra-productive, utterly dominant play of Kansas University’s basketball team in the first half of Monday’s 85-65 victory at Baylor. So let the No. 2-ranked Jayhawks (18-0 overall, 3-0 Big 12) paint the picture of a half in which they hit 79.3 percent of their shots in building a 53-32 lead over a Baylor team (12-5, 22) that had won 15 straight games in Ferrell Center. “Beautiful. I don’t think we could have played any better,” freshman guard Josh Selby said of KU’s best shooting half in the Bill Self era — the most accurate overall performance in a half

since an 85-percent outing versus Missouri on Jan. 19, 1991, in Lawrence. “I wouldn’t say ‘perfection,’ but ‘close to perfection,’’’ noted junior forward Marcus Morris, who hit six of seven first-half shots, for 13 points His brother, Markieff, iced seven of seven shots for 15 points as KU knocked down 23 of 29 KANSAS FORWARD MARKIEFF MORRIS powers in a bucket past Baylor forward Perry Jones (5).

WACO, TEXAS — A stunning 35 scouts and 10 general managers from 21 of the 30 NBA teams attended Monday night’s Big 12 Conference game in the jacked and packed Ferrell Center. As a general rule, the less awareness college basketball players have of NBA scouts watching them, the better they play. “It doesn’t matter to me,” Markieff Morris said when told of the general managers on hand to watch him play in an 85-65 victory against Baylor. “I didn’t even know. We just played. I gave it my best shot, and we competed.” It showed. In playing the best half of his college basketball career, Markieff and the rest of the team illustrated how beautiful basketball can look when the

ball keeps moving and you only notice it hitting the floor when it hits it hard to punctuate a dunk. Markieff scored 15 of his 19 points in the first half, when he made seven of seven shots, including a pair of jumpers on either side of the three-point semi-circle from the left corner.

Coaches play down importance of city showdown FSHS GIRLS AT LHS When: 7 tonight Where: Lawrence High Records: Free State is 4-3; LHS is 3-4 TV: delay at 10:30 tonight on cable channel 6
By Clark Goble Journal-World Sports Writer
For Lawrence High girls basketball coach Nick Wood and Free State counterpart Bryan Duncan, tonight’s game between the Firebirds and Lions is just another game on the schedule. “We don’t do anything different against them, quite frankly, than we do against any other opponent, as far as preparation
or excitement from coaches,” Duncan said. They both realize, however, that it means a lot more to their players. And they’re happy for that. It means they won’t have to motivate their teams to play hard. The game, which tips off at 7 p.m at LHS, is a matchup of two teams still looking for their identities. Lawrence High (3-4) plays a lot of seniors, but most are get-
ting their first varsity experience this season. The Lions have won three of their last four games after losing their first three. Duncan has scouted the Lions a couple of times and knows what to expect, especially out of LHS senior Tamiya Green, the Lions’ most athletic inside presence. The Firebirds (4-3) use solid guard play to score points. And even though they’re a much younger team, Wood doesn’t see that as an advantage for LHS.
“Being young doesn’t necessarily mean you’re not talented by any means,” Wood said. Wood is also worried about Free State’s ability to spread the floor with quality outside shooters. “We’re going to have to honor everybody they put on the floor,” Wood said. “They present a tough matchup in that way.” Duncan, who hasn’t had a team this young in a couple of years, doesn’t know how his team will
handle the rivalry. In the past, his experienced players knew how to play in rivalry games, and that knowledge spread through the rest of the team. Players on both teams might start the game too excited, but inevitably, only one team will go home happy. “Win or lose, we’ve got to wake up Wednesday either way and play the rest of the season out,” Wood said. “But, yeah, they’re jacked up.”

• Coverage of the City Showdown between the Free State and Lawrence High girls basketball teams
Nadal advances quickly in first round M E L B O U R N E , A U S T R A L I A ( AP ) — Rafael Nadal’s quest to complete his “Rafa Slam” at the Australian Open started with a first-round victory that lasted only 47 minutes and helped conserve plenty of energy. Nadal led 6-0, 5-0 when his Brazilian opponent Marcos Daniel retired because of a left knee injury today. The 24-year-old Spaniard sym-
pathized with Daniel. Nadal retired from the last Australian Open due to an injured knee in a quarterfinal loss to Andy Murray. But he recovered quickly and won the next three majors and is now aiming to be the first man since Rod Laver in 1969 to hold all four Grand Slam trophies at the same time. “It’s terrible feeling, for sure. I
wish him all the best for a fast recovery,” Nadal said after the match. “Last year was a really difficult time when I played this tournament. I came back here playing well ... but to go out like that was hard mentally. “Finally, I had a very good season in 2010.” Hoping a third time will be luckier, Vera Zvonareva began her bid
to reach a third consecutive Grand Slam final with a commanding 6-2, 6-1 victory over Sybille Bammer in the opening match today on Rod Laver Arena. Nadal’s easy run to the second round came the day after his chief rivals Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic got their campaigns started with straight-sets wins on Monday.

NFL teams looking for lack of respect By Sam Farmer Los Angeles Times
NEW YORK — Nobody believed in them. Only the people in their locker room thought they could get this far. They are a team of destiny, and Super Bowl XLV is just one win away. They are the New York Jets. And the Pittsburgh Steelers, Green Bay Packers and Chicago Bears. With all due respect, where’s all the respect that’s due? All of the four NFL teams in this weekend’s conference championship games have at some point claimed they have been overlooked, undervalued, ignored by all but those rare true believers. These aren’t title games; they’re justhopped-on-the-bandwagon bowls. People have been waiting for weeks for the Bears to come unglued. The Steelers were doomed from the start, and playing their fourth-string quarterback by Week 3. As for the Packers and Jets, they barely made it into the playoffs as six seeds. “Maybe everybody else didn’t believe in us or whatever, but we believed,” said Jets coach Rex Ryan, whose team followed the example set by Green Bay and knocked out the No. 1-seeded team. “We worked too hard to get back here, and we came for a reason. We thought we were the better team.” The Jets latch on to the disrespect card the way Santonio Holmes hangs on to the football — with gusto. Yes, there have been slights, but, as is the case with all teams, everything that can be magnified will be. “We’re all still little football players at heart — and little football players like to be motivated, like to have an edge going into a game, some sort of anger, some reason to be more focused,” said CBS analyst Boomer Esiason, a former All-Pro quarterback who spent three of his 14 seasons with the Jets. “Even as juvenile as it sounds, football players have been conditioned since we began playing that it’s an emotional game that requires great focused intensity. So every single one of these coaches are going to try to do that with their teams.” Before the Packers played their divisional game at Atlanta, Green Bay defensive coordinator Dom Capers apprised his players of dismissive comments allegedly made by Falcons fullback Ovie Mughelli. While saying he didn’t know where Capers came up with the comments Mughelli supposedly made after a threepoint win over the Packers in November, Green Bay’s B.J. Raji said the remarks “kind of fueled our fire a little bit.” Said Raji, in the wake of Saturday’s win in the Georgia Dome: “(Mughelli) was saying after the first game how we were soft. When somebody challenges your manhood, you have to respond. It had nothing to do with football. It was just strictly being a man.” Whether those comments were as advertised, or spiced up for effect, they seemed to do the trick. It’s not uncommon for coaches and players to go in search of bulletin-board material for snubs, interpreting everything in the most negative way possible. The Bears, for one, will happily use disrespect — actual or perceived — as motivation. “First, we weren’t going to make the playoffs,” Chicago defensive end Julius Peppers said, according to ESPN. “Then, we couldn’t win the division. Now, I think I hear it already. ...” And if he doesn’t hear it, he’ll just listen harder.
Raiders promote offensive coordinator Jackson ALAMEDA, CALIF. — The Oakland Raiders promoted offensive coordinator Hue Jackson to head coach Monday after he helped the team more than double its scoring output in his first year with the franchise. Jackson will be formally introduced at a news conference today — two weeks after the Raiders announced they were not picking up an option to keep coach Tom Cable. “The fire in Hue will set a flame that will burn for a long time in the hearts and minds of the Raider football team and the Raider Nation,” owner Al Davis said in a statement.
NFL Favre again files for retirement MINNEAPOLIS — Don’t believe Brett Favre is finally done? Well, NFL’s all-time leader of almost every major passing mark has at least filled out the forms. Favre has made another move toward leaving the game for good by filing retirement papers with the league, NFL spokesman Greg Aiello confirmed Monday. This is merely a procedural matter, to start the clock on a player’s pension and Hall of Fame eligibility. It’s worth noting, too, that Favre has done this before, only to change his mind. Retired players can request to be reinstated at any time.
MIAMI — The Miami Dolphins are looking to another low-scoring team for an offensive coordinator. The Dolphins are expected to hire Cleveland Browns coordinator Brian Daboll, a person familiar with the negotiations said Monday. The person said the Dolphins have decided on Daboll and are expected to announce the hiring later this week.
COLLEGE BASKETBALL Ohio State is new No. 1 The last time Thad Matta’s Ohio State Buckeyes topped the Associated Press Top 25, they reached the national championship game. Could the same karma take place in 201011? “It did happen that way before, and it would be great for it to happen again,” Matta said Monday, hours after the Buckeyes replaced Duke at No. 1. “I’d trade it right now for better defense. But it’s great for our program.” The Buckeyes (18-0) moved up one spot to replace Duke, which was No. 1 in the preseason Top 25 and the first nine polls of the regular season, including six weeks as the unanimous pick of the 65-member national media panel. The Blue Devils’ loss at Florida State on Wednesday opened the way for the Buckeyes, who are No. 1 for the third time in school history. The Buckeyes received 49 first-place votes Monday. Kansas, which was No. 1 on six ballots, and Syracuse, which got eight first-place votes, each moved up one spot to second and third. Duke, which still received one first-place vote, dropped to fourth. Pittsburgh, which was also No. 1 on one ballot, San Diego State and Villanova remained fifth through seventh. Connecticut, BYU and Texas rounded out the top 10.
Baylor women stay atop poll Baylor remains No. 1 as it keeps running through opponents. The Lady Bears received 25 first-place votes Monday in the women’s college basketball poll by the Associated Press. They beat Texas by 15 and routed Oklahoma State. It’s the third straight week Baylor sits atop the poll. UConn stayed second with 13 first-place ballots, one more than last week. Duke, Stanford and Tennessee complete the first five. ● Polls on page 10B

BIG 12/TOP 25 ROUNDUP
Pressey leads MU past K-State The Associated Press
C O L U M B I A , M O . — Pay no attention to the glove Phil Pressey wears on his shooting hand to protect a broken ring finger. The Missouri freshman guard certainly doesn’t. Pressey was 3-for-5 from three-point range and had 13 points in No. 13 Missouri’s 7559 whipping of Kansas State on Monday night. He’s 7-for-9 on three-pointers the last two games and had a big allaround game, too, with four steals and three assists in 24 minutes off the bench. “He was like a little gnat out there, even to the point where one guy pushed over,” coach Mike Anderson said. “For a guy that’s been out for almost three weeks to play the way he’s played the last two games, he’s got a chance to be a special player.” Pressey, son of former NBA player Paul Pressey, had a strong followup after scoring a career-best 16 points in an overtime loss at Texas A&M
on Saturday. He puts up shots with confidence. “I don’t hope it goes in, I expect it to go in,” Pressey said. “So if I miss one, I keep shooting, and if make it, it’s the same thing.” Marcus Denmon scored 10 of his 14 points in the second half, and the Tigers (16-3, 2-2 Big 12) forced Kansas State into a season-worst 24 turnovers. Missouri led by 15 at the half and surged again after the Wildcats cut the gap to three with just over nine minutes to go. Kansas State was outscored 17-4 in the last 7:15. “You can’t dig yourself such a big hole,” Kansas State coach Frank Martin said. “We were pathetic defensively in the first half. We weren’t much better on offense.” Jacob Pullen had 16 points, and Jordan HenriquezRoberts added 14 for Kansas State (13-6, 1-3), which has dropped three of four. The Wildcats were held scoreless for nearly five minutes in the second half.

KANSAS GUARD JOSH SELBY FLASHES A SMILE as he backs up on defense during the first half.
Bears praise KU ————
Drew: Jayhawks were ‘efficient’ By Jesse Newell firstname.lastname@example.org
Following Kansas University’s 79. 3-percent shooting performance in the first half Monday night, Baylor coach Scott Drew could only blame his defense so much. “At the end of the day, you’ve still got to make those shots,” Drew said following KU’s 85-65 victory. “A lot of times, if you go 5on-0 on offense, I don’t know if you go 23-of-29. They were efficient.” The Jayhawks made 18 of 20 two-pointers (90 percent) and f ive of nine three-pointers (55.6 percent) in the first 20 minutes. Drew credited KU for “coming out and really punching us in the face, as they say.” The Jayhawks snapped the Bears’ 15-game home-
court winning streak. Drew is 1-8 all-time against KU. “I know we’re embarrassed about how they played,” Drew said, “but they deserve a lot of credit.” Drew was asked if he felt KU played like a team that had something to prove. “Whatever it was, it was good,” Drew said. “I think that’s why people think they’re second in the nation or first in the nation, because they’re capable of playing like that.” He also hinted that KU has been judged too harshly by fans and analysts this season. “I’ve heard a lot of criticism about them having close games, but there’s a certain toughness that you develop with close games, and good teams win close games,” Drew said. “So they’re a great team.” Drew also had high
praise for Marcus and Markieff Morris, who combined for 44 points and 14 rebounds. “They’re tough to guard because they can do multiple things,” Drew said. “They finished with six assists and four turnovers. Our backcourt had eight assists, 13 turnovers. I mean, there’s not many holes in their games.” Baylor’s Perry Jones — who finished with a teamhigh 20 points on 6-for-11 shooting — also was impressed by the twins. “They just play hard,” Jones said. “They’re a good combination. Those two, they know how to work together.” Baylor dropped to 3-30 all-time against teams ranked in the AP top five. The Bears also fell in front of 10,596 fans — the largest basketball crowd in PLAYERS ON THE KANSAS BENCH REACT TO A BUCKET BY AND FOUL A Ferrell Center history.

attempts and five of nine from three-point range in the first half. “Efficient,” chimed in head coach Bill Self, agreeing with a reporter who chose the word, “improbable.” “Very improbable, especially when the other team plays zone,” Self added after KU shredded the Bears’ 2-3 zone. Self said his Jayhawks were “zoned in better than at any time this year.” Why? Well, Marcus Morris said the Jayhawks were playing angry in response to Saturday’s 63-60 victory over Nebraska. The players, he said, felt the reaction amid KU nation was that the Jayhawks were fortunate to be undefeated and might be headed for a loss soon. “I definitely feel we have something to prove every game,” said Marcus, who finished with 25 points off 10-of-14 shooting while his brother had 19 points off 9of-10 shooting. KU as a team finished at 62.5 percent to Baylor’s 48.8 mark. “I feel like nobody gives us credit. I feel those games that were close this year, people really thought we were supposed to lose those games. There was a lot of talk how we’d come down here and lose,” Marcus added. “We keep those things to ourselves. We’re a big family team. I love my guys. We go out and play hard every night.” It was speculated the Jayhawks also might have been upset in a pre-game video which showed highlights from Baylor’s 55-7 football victory over KU last fall. The video also showed the end of KU’s second-round NCAA Tournament loss to Northern Iowa while highlighting the fact Baylor made the Elite Eight. “I didn’t see that,” Marcus Morris said. “Hey, there’s

I’m going to tell you that it’s only going to happen once.” Finally, there was speculation the Jayhawks were upset at some BU student fans who yelled insults before the game and shouted things at the KU bench throughout. Selby, who scored 12 points with three assists and three turnovers in 29 minutes, playfully spoke to one fan leaving the court at halftime. He uttered the words, “It’s over,” to the fan. “I said that at halftime and after the game, too,” Selby said with a smile. “It didn’t upset me. I just wanted to keep my focus. Fans will always give me a hard time. It’s over with. We played well to beat a good team tonight.” The Jayhawks led just 1615 with 12:55 remaining in the first half, then played near-perfect ball the rest of the session. KU off icials said it
marked KU’s best shooting performance in a half in a road game at least since the 1989-90 season when indepth records were starting to be kept. “That was by far as well as we’ve played in a half,” Self said. “In the second half (during which BU cut the gap to 12, getting no closer than that), when they went with that little 3/4 zone press, we were content to get it across instead of attacking. “This might sound bad, but this is the most ready team that we’ve had play this year. Going through the locker room, our energy, all the guys on the same page, our focus. That’s something we’ve struggled with. We even struggled with it in the second half, certainly for 20 minutes we had it.” KU was outscored 33-32 the second half. Kansas will meet Texas in a 3 p.m. tipoff Saturday in Allen Fieldhouse.

NOTEBOOK Marcus honored Kansas University junior forward Marcus Morris on Monday was named Big 12 player of the week for the second time this season. Baylor’s Perry Jones was tapped rookie of the week, also for the second time in 2010-11. Morris exploded for 33 points and grabbed 13 rebounds, both career highs, in the Jayhawks’ narrow 84-79 victory over Iowa State. He connected on 11 of 15 floor shots. He scored 13 of his 16 points in the second half of a come-from-behind, 63-60 home victory over Nebraska. For the week, the Philadelphia native, whose brother, Markieff, has been named Big 12 player of the week once this season, averaged 24.5 points and 12.0 rebounds, while shooting 70.8 percent from the field Marcus Morris last week surpassed the 1,000-point scoring mark for his career, entering Monday’s Baylor game with 1,001 points. “Marcus has played very well,” KU coach Bill Self said. “Really going back to the Michigan game, I don’t think there’s been many players around that’s probably played better over a span of three games. They all three (Michigan, ISU, NU) were hard wins. He played a huge role in us pulling out all of them.” Baylor coach Scott Drew said Morris, “is one of the most impressive players in the country. There’s not much he isn’t doing — passing, shooting, dominating inside/outside, (being) emotional on the court, getting his teammates fired up. He’s having a banner year. He’s doing a good job in his allaround game and really become a great player.”

pattern. (Look at their right eyebrows closely.) They take great pride in each other’s accomplishments. Each player’s No. 1 goal during each possession, it seems, is to set up his twin for a bucket. That’s how they learned the game, and deriving more pleasure from setting up somebody else naturally extended to the other three players on the floor. “They shoot 13-of-14, don’t turn it over (once, actually) and have four assists on top of that,” Self marveled at their first-half numbers. “They’re good against the zone, if we can figure out a way to get them touches. They’re so unselfish. They score, but they really do a good job of looking for others.” In turn, others do a great job of looking for them. And the ball moves to the right places. The rapid first-half ball movement resulted in an
extraordinary 79-percent accuracy rate. The second half was far less perfect, including one you-had-to-see-it-to-believeit moment early in Baylor’s 17-6 run to open the second half. Tyshawn Taylor turned it over at one end, and at the other end was guarding Dunn, who had the ball in the right corner. Taylor deemed that a good time to start a conversation with the nearby referee about the foul Taylor thought should have been called at the other end. Taylor took his eye off Dunn to look at the ref as he chatted him up. This wasn’t Dunn’s best night. He was sick and he played like it, but he wasn’t about to let an easy opportunity like that get past him. He whipped right around Taylor, who fouled Dunn, giving him two free points so that he could make his point to the unimpressed ref. Taylor then missed a
three pointer, but other than that addled stretch, he had one of his best games in a while at both ends. So did Mario Little, a dangerous scorer when attacking the zone from the middle of it. He scored 10 points in seven minutes. With the Morris twins seemingly particularly agitated by gripes about small margins of victory and by predictions that Baylor could pin an upset on them, the Jayhawks, on the day they moved to No. 2 in the national rankings, played like they eventually could get to No. 1. “We’re going to keep playing hard every game,” Marcus Morris said. “I think we can beat anybody in the country, if you ask me. Don’t ever count us out.” Many will pick Texas to end the 69-game Allen Fieldhouse winning streak. Can the twins play the disrespect angle twice in one week? We’ll find out.
KANSAS GUARD TYREL REED (14) HEAVES a pass to teammate Josh Selby (32) as Reed is defended by Baylor forward Perry Jones.
Nailbiters Self was asked about the Jayhawks’ tendency to play close games on the Big 12 teleconference Monday. “I don’t think we’ve gotten consistent play. Either our bigs have been inconsistent or our guards,” Self said. “The last couple games, it’s been our guards for the most part. Our bigs have been pretty consistent. “I’d like to see us put it all together so we can see what we look like. That doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll win when you do that. In conference, we’ve played two teams that were preseason low (picks). I’m looking at it now, if there are five or six teams better than Iowa State, Nebraska, it’ll be hard for everybody. Not too many teams will go to Ames Sadler, and win. If Doc’s group (S Nebraska) keeps playing like they played us ... that was on our home floor. If we play there, they win the game based on how the game went this past Saturday,” Self added. “I’d like to see us become more consistent because I know in order for us to win in this league, we have to.” Drew says … Drew on KU: “If you want to be a successful team, you have to win close games. That’s what they’ve done, won close games when challenged. They have chemistry, toughness, all those things. In their games that have been close, they’ve not made shots. Definitely why they are so good year in and out ... it starts with their defensive effort.” NBA in the house In all, 35 NBA scouts, including 10 general managers, attended Monday’s game, with 21 of 30 teams represented. Ten general managers were on hand, including former KU assistant coach R.C. Buford of the San Antonio Spurs. Former KU player Milt Newton, vice president/player personnel director of the Washington Wizards, also attended. This, that Self said there’s a good chance Travis Releford (ankle) could play in Saturday’s game against Texas. ... KU is 18-0 for the first time since the 200708 team opened 20-0. ... KU is 3-0 in the Big 12 for the fourth straight year. ... KU is 4-0 in true road games this year and 8-0 in games played away from Allen Fieldhouse. ... KU is 16-2 all-time against Baylor; 7-1 in Ferrell Center. ... Self won his 220th game at KU against 43 losses. ... He is 8-2 versus Baylor. .. KU’s 53 first-half points were most in a half since it scored 55 in the second half versus Ohio earlier Nov. 26. — GARY BEDORE

Hostility won’t stop dad from tapping son Annie’s Mailbox
D e a r A n n i e : What are your views on older women dating younger men? I am 56, and he is 36. He first asked me to marry him 10 years ago, but I broke it off, thinking I was doing him a favor. I then married someone else, hoping he would find someone his age. He did, but that marriage didn’t last. Neither did mine. Am I being selfish? Is there any possibility that we could email@example.com be happy together? My family I avoid my parents as much has given us their blessing, as possible and don’t speak to but his is another story. I love my father unless it is absolute- him enough to let him go if ly necessary. Do other readers have this problem? — Son who is Wondering

Tonight’s “Pioneers of Television” (7 p.m., PBS, check local listings) glances back at the golden age of science-fiction storytelling and looks at the career and sometime rivalry of three figures: Gene Roddenberry, Irwin Allen and Rod Serling. William Shatner and “Star Trek” castmates Leonard Nimoy (Spock) and Nichelle Nichols (Uhura) recall Roddenberry’s efforts to infuse each “Star Trek” script with topicality relevant to audiences in the tumultuous late 1960s. Roddenberry’s “Star Trek” is portrayed here as the thinking-person’s sci-fi, in contrast to Irwin Allen’s “Lost in Space,” a far more popular series clearly aimed at children. Castmembers Billy Mumy, Angela Cartwright and Marta Kristen recall some of the show’s sillier moments, most notably a rebellion by vegetables. Mumy and Shatner also recall their roles on Serling’s timeless “Twilight Zone,” an anthology series drawing on some of the finest sci-fi writers of its time. While “Pioneers” mentions their contribution to “Zone,” it implies that most “Star Trek” episodes were written by Roddenberry, when in fact that series also reflected stories and ideas by notable writers, including Ray Bradbury and Harlan Ellison. “Pioneers” also neglects to mention the “Twilight Zone” rival series “Outer Limits.” While not as revered as “Zone,” it also anthologized some of the better writers of its era and aired stories that remain influential. It has been argued that last year’s “Avatar” bore a striking resemblance to one “Outer Limits” installment. The recycling of such plots may reflect the decline of commercial literary outlets for original sci-fi stories (or popular short stories of any kind). “Alfred Hitchcock Presents,” another early anthology TV series, presented adaptations of shortstory writers like Roald Dahl, folks whose stories probably could not get published today. The absence of creative outlets for original stories has contributed to the glut of remakes. On tonight’s “Pioneers,” we’re informed that Irwin Allen was pressured to make “Lost in Space” more sensational and cartoony because of increased competition from the surprise 1966 hit “Batman.” Adam West appears to remind us how indelibly he played the campy Caped Crusader. The success of “Batman” spawned many imitations. Among them was the TV version of “The Green Hornet” (itself a remake of a radio drama), recently remade and reinterpreted for Seth Rogen and probably playing in a theater near you.
Tonight’s other highlights ● Jim is caught between super duty and maintaining his secret on “No Ordinary Family” (7 p.m., ABC). ● Baze contemplates setting up house with Emma on the season finale of “Life Unexpected” (7 p.m., CW). ● Pentagon secrets revealed on “NCIS: Los Angeles” (8 p.m., CBS). ● Will finds himself on a judge’s bad side on “The Good Wife” (9 p.m., CBS). ● Haddie faces grounding on “Parenthood” (9 p.m., NBC). ● Fitch falls under suspicion on “Detroit 1-8-7” (9 p.m., ABC).

Dear Son: It is common for parents to touch their children when speaking to them. In most instances, it is a sign of affection. We can understand, however, how constant tapping could be annoying, although your reaction seems out of proportion. If Dad is tapping your arm to keep your attention from drifting, you can work on getting him to stop, but it requires that you put a lid on your level of hostility. Try talking to him, saying that you love him but it makes you extremely uncomfortable to be touched constantly. Remind him gently when he starts up.

Dear Annie: My father has a habit of touching me when he talks. He’ll tap my hand or leg, and he often touches my arm when it’s unnecessary. I’ve told him many times that I don’t like it, but he gets quite unhappy if I ask him to stop. He’s done this since I was a kid, and I’m 33 now. Once, when I was 13, he kept tapping his leg against mine under the table at an outdoor restaurant. I couldn’t tolerate it and moved my leg away. My father flew into a rage, snarling and gritting his teeth and telling me I had a “disgusting habit.” I am going to my parents’ house tomorrow and am not looking forward to it. I have to remember not to sit near Dad and to stand at least two feet away when he speaks to me. The problem is that while he’s talking, he moves closer and then starts tapping me. It infuriates me that he won’t stop no matter how many times I’ve asked him to. Here’s what I suspect: My father considers me his property. He wants to be able to put his hands on me the way one does with a pet. When I ask him to stop, he is insulted as if his property is being taken from him. I also suspect he taps me because he thinks I’m not listening and needs to keep my attention.
