Some pigs: City allows potbellied swines as pets By Chad Lawhorn firstname.lastname@example.org
Lawrence city commissioners — even the one who owns a barbecue restaurant — couldn’t resist granting mercy on this pig. Commissioners at their Tuesday evening meeting unanimously agreed to add potbellied pigs as an allowable pet under the city’s animal code.
The change came about after Lawrence resident Ehren Penix learned that his potbellied pig, Starky, wasn’t legal in the city. “It was some of the worst news I could ever receive,” Penix said. “The thought of losing him was like losing a best friend. Please don’t send me home to tell Starky that the people of Lawrence don’t want him because nothing could be further from the truth.”
More than a dozen supporters of Starky, including a father and daughter who live next to the approximately 80-pound pig, showed up at City Hall to support the change in the animal code. City commissioners said they largely couldn’t find a reason to disallow the animals, as long as a few regulations are followed. They include:
Making it clear that even though the animals are allow-
able, an owner of a potbellied pig can still be cited under the city’s nuisance ordinance if issues of odor emerge.
An owner would not be allowed to have more than one potbellied pig at a time.
An owner must submit paperwork to the city from a veterinarian verifying that the pig is a potbellied variety rather than a more traditional Special to the Journal-World

Public input sought on trash, recycling report Meeting scheduled for Thursday at City Hall By Chad Lawhorn firstname.lastname@example.org
Thursday will be trash day for everybody in Lawrence. City leaders are hosting a public input session at 6 p.m. Thursday at City Hall to hear comments about a draft report that makes multiple recommendations about how to change the city’s trash
and recycling systems. Completion of the draft report is the most significant step yet in the effort by city commissioners to overhaul the city’s trash system, which in years past has operated at a loss and has created questions about its lack of a cityrun curbside recycling program. The report, crafted by the city’s Solid Waste Task Force, will be delivered to city commissioners, who will make the final decision about any changes to the trash system.
Among the major recommendations in the report:
Mandatory usage of carts for both trash and recycling. The city would provide two carts to every single-family household. One would be for recycling and one would be for trash. The carts would be compatible with hydraulic lifts on the city’s trash trucks, reducing workers’ compensation costs. The report also leaves open the possibility that the city could switch to fully automated trucks that would re-
duce the number of crew members on a trash truck from three to one.
The city solicited proposals from private companies to run a new citywide curbside recycling program. The report recommends that a new curbside recycling program be created but recognizes it must be fiscally feasible. The report recommends any curbside service be offered on a weekly basis.

TOPEKA — More criticism emerged Tuesday over Gov. Sam Brownback’s tax plan as figures showed the poorest of Kansans would face a huge increase in their tax liability. A nonpartisan policy group said Brownback’s proposal would benefit the rich at the expense of the poor. The Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy said its analysis found “that the bottom 80 percent of the state’s income distribution would collectively see a tax hike under the Brownback plan, while the best off 20 percent of Kansans would see substantial tax cuts.” The Washington, D.C., research group, which advocates for progressive taxes, “He is stealing added, “For most middle- and from the poor low-income Kansans, the tax and giving to break from the income tax the rich.” rate cuts would be completely - State Sen. Anoffset by the loss of income thony Hensley tax credits and itemized deductions, as well as a higher sales tax rate.” Senate Democratic Leader Anthony Hensley of Topeka called Brownback’s proposal “Robin Hood in reverse.” Hensley said of Brownback, “He is stealing from the poor and giving to the rich.”
Brownback says plan is pro-growth Brownback, a Republican, has proposed decreasing state income tax rates, eliminating the state income tax for thousands of businesses, doing away with numerous tax credits and deductions, and keeping the state sales tax at 6.3 cents per dollar, which under current law is supposed to drop to 5.7 cents per dollar in 2013. Brownback has said his proposal will lure businesses to Kansas and spur economic development. He said his intent is to eventually phase out the state income tax. “I firmly believe these reforms will set the stage for strong economic growth in Kansas — and will put more money into the pockets Please see TAX, page 2A

GERALDINE F. HADJUKOVICH Geraldine F. Hadjukovich, 86, Lawrence, KS, passed away Jan. 12, 2012. She was born Jan. 8, 1926 to farmers in Seneca, Missouri, Fred and Gertrude (Nutting) Farrier. She attended high school in Lawrence at Liberty Memorial High School and baby-sat for an income. She also participated in 4-H. She said she married too young at age 18. Her husband, Robert Nightingale, served in the Army in WWI and was wounded, requiring considerable care upon his return. She and her husband lived in Little Rock, AR. She lost her only pregnancy at three months due to being hit by a car which never even stopped. After 17 years they were divorced and Geraldine went to work as a supervisor in the Hercules Plant. It was there she met Leon Gordon who became a close companion. He was killed in WWII and sent her his medal. She was also employed at Ferrell’s Gift Shop, J.C.Penney, and Weaver’s Department Store. She married Emil Hadjukovich in the late 1960s. They resided in Kansas City, Missouri. He preceded her in death.
Twentytwo years ago she met “Bud” and they resided on a farm in Tecumseh, Kansas which they Hadjukovich both loved. Bud preceded her in death on June 18, 2010. During their 22 years together they traveled to various states fishing and hunting. They loved to dance. She was a good seamstress, crocheted, and made a delicious assortment of candies at Christmas. She was an avid gardener and canned the produce from her garden. She is survived by her twin sister Nadine Hadl, Pleasant Hill, MO; one brother, Fred Farrier, McPherson, KS; and a host of in-laws, nieces, nephews, and friends. Her brother David Clayton Farrier passed away Jan. 13, 2012. She was preceded by two brothers, Donald and Ruben Farrier, two sisters, Maxine and Dorothy, and a half-sister, Violet. Private burial will be at Topeka Cemetery. Please sign this guestbook at obituaries.ljworld.com.

of Kansas families and businesses,” Brownback said in his State of the State address. “Growth that will allow us to further reduce tax rates and increase our competitiveness. Growth that will see people move to Kansas instead of leaving our state,” he said.
More numbers emerging As a group, low-income families would see an astronomical tax increase, according to Kansas Department of Revenue figures released by legislators. The amount of individual income tax revenue would decrease by 12 percent overall, but it would affect different groups of taxpayers differently. Those Revenue Department figures show there were 564,328 Kansas tax filers with adjusted gross incomes of $25,000 or less in

Residents would be re-
quired to pay for the curbside recycling service, regardless of whether they choose to use the service. The curbside service simply would be included as part of the city’s standard monthly trash rate. The report doesn’t predict how much curbside recycling may add to a resident’s monthly trash bill. Mayor Aron Cromwell, chairman of the task force, previously has said he’s confident total monthly trash bills will be less than $20 per month under any new service.

can overcome all of the political and practical obstacles to get the job done, I don’t know.” The Supreme Court justices are expected to make specific recommendations — especially on issues that would require statutory or even constitutional changes — to the Legislature this session.

The use of a centralized documents system.

Wagnon, who served as secretary of the Kansas Department of Revenue from 2003 until 2011. Brownback’s plan would get rid of the home mortgage interest deduction, the charitable contribution deduction, child care and dependent care deductions, the Earned Income Tax Credit, the tax credit for families who adopt children and the sales tax on the food rebate program. Removing the rebate on sales taxes paid on food will take money from more than 365,000 Kansans while ending the state portion of the EITC would hurt more than 227,000 working Kansans, Wagnon said. Brownback has said he planned to take funds saved from junking the EITC and plow them into programs to help the poor. Hensley said this runs counter to Republican rhetoric “to reward work and not reward welfare.”
making sure these are truly potbellied pigs will be pretty important,” City Commissioner Mike Dever said. Potbellied pigs are generally smaller than traditional pigs, but some — like those owned by rural Franklin County resident Rhoda Paddock — can grow to 250 pounds or more. Commissioners had considered putting a weight limit on potbellied pigs that could be kept in the city limits but opted not to include such a regulation. Paddock said she did not believe neighboring residents would find the pets,
which owners said prefer to be inside most of the time, objectionable. “My pigs are pottytrained,” said Paddock, who lives in rural Franklin County. “They don’t bite. They don’t chase you. They just want love.” City commissioners will finalize the new regulations in the coming weeks when a formal ordinance is presented for a vote.

Fairchild said it’s still a guessing game at this point about what the recommendations will be. “The question is whether everybody is going to be able to have a trial within their own county,” he said. And if major changes are proposed, things could still get complicated. As an example, in January 2010 the Legislative Division

That is more than a 5,000 percent increase in tax liability and averages $156 more per filer. Meanwhile, there are 21,158 Kansas tax filers with adjusted gross incomes of $250,000 or more. Under Brownback’s plan, they would pay an average of $5,239 less in taxes, and as a group $110.8 million less than now, which is a 18.5 percent tax cut. Kansas Democratic Party Chairwoman Joan Wagnon, who also served as the state’s chief tax official for eight years, said Brownback has picked banks and wealthy corporations over people. “This isn’t even remotely fair, and it drains funding from education,” Wagnon said.

of Post Audit released a report saying the state would save $8.1 million if it consolidated to seven judicial districts, and it combined Douglas County with 10 other counties in the area. Fairchild was not a fan of that scenario saying Douglas County was included with counties it “had nothing in common with.” “It would cause lots of issues that nobody’s going to be happy with,” he said. But he also said the commission’s study is designed to produce hard data to identify if some districts have less support than they need and some might have more. “That’s speculation,” Fairchild said. “That’s what this is designed to ferret out.” — Reporter George Diepenbrock can be reached at 832-7144.

the request because he said competition for the special alcohol funding is competitive, and the city was forced to turn down several worthy requests during last summer’s budget process. A representative of Heartland Clinic said he expects the billing position to be self-sufficient with a year. The organization requested money from both the city and the county to help cover start-up costs for the position.
City defers action on boarding house issue After nearly two hours of discussion, city commissioners on Tuesday deferred taking action on a request that would have changed the rules for boarding houses in the Oread neighborhood. Commissioners said they were leaning toward asking the Lawrence-Douglas
County Planning Commission to consider a new regulation that would allow only houses of 4,500 square feet or more to qualify for a special parking provision that would make it easier for those homes to be converted in boarding houses. Currently, homes that are 3,500 square feet or more qualify for the special parking provision, which allows developers to provide only .5 parking space per bedroom instead of the standard 1 parking space per bedroom. But commissioners delayed the item for one week until staff members could provide a bit more information about how many homes in the Oread neighborhood would be eligible to use the relaxed parking standards. The regulations for boarding houses will apply to all neighborhoods in the city that are zoned for multifamily use, but the largest impact is expected to be felt in the Oread neighborhood.

Veterans panel hears mental health issues TOPEKA (AP) — Funding cuts are making it difficult to meet the increasing needs of veterans with mental health issues, mental health providers and agencies for veterans in Kansas told lawmakers on Tuesday. Advocates told the House Veterans, Military and Homeland
Security Committee that an increase in such needs is leading more veterans to commit suicide. Sheli Sweeney, of the Kansas Association of Community Mental Health Associations, provided statistics showing that 26 percent of all veterans returned from Iraq and Afghanistan with some sort of mental disorder and female soldiers were three times as likely to commit suicide. More than 7,500 Kansas National Guard members have been deployed to overseas operations, including repeated duty in Iraq and Afghanistan.

BRIEFLY Panel to hear medical marijuana bill TOPEKA — A bill that would legalize marijuana use for medical purposes in Kansas will be considered next week by a House committee. Supporters of House Bill 2330 will hold a rally and news conference in conjunction with the Jan. 24 hearing before the House Health and Human Services Committee. The Cannabis Compassion and Care Act would legalize marijuana use for people with debilitating conditions, such as cancer. The measure would provide for the registration and operations of not-for-profit “compassion centers,” which would have the authority to possess, cultivate, manufacture and dispense marijuana. Buyers would have to have a doctor’s prescription and a license from the Kansas Department of Health and Environment. Sixteen states have enacted laws legalizing medical marijuana.
House Speaker says he won’t resign TOPEKA (AP) — Kansas House Speaker Mike O’Neal says he will not resign because of criticism he’s received since forwarding two emails critical of President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama. Faithful America, a nondenominational online forum based in Washington, D.C., had collected nearly 25,000 signatures by Tuesday for online petitions seeking O’Neal’s resignation. The controversy started after O’Neal O’Neal forwarded the two emails this month. One quoted a Bible verse that says “May his days be few; may another take his place of leadership.” The second email called Mrs. Obama “YoMama.” O’Neal, a Republican from Hutchinson, apologized last week, saying he did not intend to offend anyone. He said the Bible verse was meant to call for Obama to be defeated in the upcoming election. Critics, however, cite the next verse in the Psalm: “May his children be fatherless and his wife a widow.”

Allen said the first line of treatment for critical limb ischemia, or CLI, is to have people modify their behaviors and to exercise through the pain because it helps increase blood flow.

The cells are grown under controlled conditions and then injected back into the patient and into specific areas below the knee. “The goal from this is that it will improve blood supply down into the foot enough so that it will salvage limbs and prevent people from having to get amputations,” he said. So far, preliminary results have been positive. “We’ve had some pretty dramatic saves, but the proof is going to be in the pudding,” he said. Allen said this clinical trial will be on a larger scale and it will randomize patients. Half of the enrolled patients will receive a placebo injec-
tion with no stem cells, and the other half will receive stem cells so there will be a comparison. The study will follow patients for 18 months. “Part of the benefit of being in a trial is you get pretty hands-on, close care because people are trying to optimize your results and your outcome,” he said. Saint Luke’s will be enrolling patients for up to 18 months. For more information about the study or to see if you might qualify, call 816932-4828.
He said the program also seeks to keep costs low: tuition rates for the fall are at $174 per credit hour for an undergraduate. Sara Rosen, KU’s senior vice provost for academic affairs, said KU is looking to expand the number of degree programs it offers online. In the past, the university mostly offered individual courses online, without a focus on specific degree programs. “Our priority will be to create degree programs going forward,” she said. Among the first-priority degree programs will be a bachelor of general studies degree designed as a sort of “two-plus-two” program for students who have completed two years at a community college, Rosen said. KU does offer a few degrees through distance learning and
online today, including an online master’s degree program in special education that debuted this fall, Rosen said. KU formed a new Center for Online and Distance Learning in May, and it will soon move to Budig Hall, Rosen said. There, it will be in a centralized on-campus location and will be able to coordinate with KU’s Blackboard course management system that’s in use in many of the university’s regular classes. “It will serve as a service center,” Rosen said of the center, providing technical support for faculty wanting to develop online courses, as well as a place that imparts the best teaching strategies.

District balance If Kansas legislators can aim for exact population balance in the state’s four congressional districts, they can do the same for state legislative districts.
ansas legislators should try harder to equalize the number of residents living in each Kansas House and Senate district. When redrawing the state’s U.S. House districts, legislators are required by law to strive for “zero deviation,” which would place the exact same number of residents in each of the state’s congressional districts. An exact balance is impossible to achieve, but it’s a good goal that requires lawmakers to do the best job they can to equalize population among districts. Last week, however, the House Redistricting Committee voted to accept a population deviation of up to 5 percent when redrawing state legislative districts. Based on numbers from the 2010 Census, the perfect size for a Kansas House district is 22,716. A 5 percent deviation would be 1,136 residents. That means the committee would accept districts with populations that ranged from 5 percent below the ideal (21,580) to 5 percent above (23,852). That’s a pretty significant difference. A couple of factors are likely to make the population differences among legislative districts even bigger before the next redistricting process 10 years from now. New census figures show a significant population shift from rural areas of the state to urban areas, which is likely to continue in the next decade. For instance, the 38th District, represented by Rep. Anthony Brown of Eudora, now has 40,677 residents while the 117th District in Hodgeman County in western Kansas has only 18,133. Even if the redistricting committee redraws district lines now to exactly equalize the size of those districts, chances are a continued rural-to-urban shift will cause them to be significantly unequal in 10 years. Accepting a 5 percent deviation in the size of those districts now is likely to aggravate that problem. Cities that are the home of major universities or military installations, including Lawrence and Manhattan, also could argue that their residents already are under-represented because of a state law that allows students and military personnel to choose to be counted in their “home” communities in another city or state instead of in the communities where they actually live most of the time. The state’s 2010 census adjustment subtracted about 12,000 residents from Douglas and about 11,000 from Riley County. That deviation only adds to the 5 percent deviation that legislators say they will accept when redrawing districts. Rep. Caryn Tyson, R-Parker, argued that “It is not feasible to keep counties and towns together” with a zero deviation. It’s not possible to keep entire cities together if they are larger than about 24,000 residents. Splitting a county between two legislative districts seems like a minor problem. “People are protecting their own interests,” concluded Rep. Brown, a fellow Republican. It’s natural for representatives to try to protect their own turf in redistricting, which often is called the most politically driven activity state legislators handle. Redrawing district lines isn’t easy, but striving for the best possible population balance in individual districts is a basic part of the job. If state legislators can do it for congressional districts, which involve far greater population numbers, they should be able to do the same for the state’s legislative districts. LAWRENCE

Military hotline could head off conflict Last week, the Obama administration warned Iran that it would cross a “red line” if it closed the Strait of Hormuz, the narrow opening at the mouth of the Persian Gulf through which a fifth of the world’s daily oil trade flows. Iran recently threatened to close the waterway if the West imposed new economic sanctions, which is about to happen. Many U.S. experts doubt the Tehran regime really intends to block the strait because that would choke off Iran’s own oil exports and cut its main source of revenue. The bigger fear is that rising tensions will spark a gulf incident that could escalate into something much bigger. One major reason for this fear: Iran and the United States have no means of communication to defuse a confrontation. The absence of any direct military hotline could produce the gulf war neither side wants. This risk has long concerned U.S. military officials. On Jan. 6, 2008, five Iranian speedboats aggressively confronted three U.S. Navy warships; one of the U.S. ships was about to shoot when the Iranian vessels turned away. At the time, Secretary of Defense Robert Gates said: “This is a very volatile area. The risk of an incident, and of an incident escalating, is real.” After that 2008 event, retired Adm. James Lyons, who had served as commander of the Pacific Fleet, proposed a remedy in an op-ed article in the Washington Times: Modify the 1972 Incidents at Sea Agreement — designed to prevent misunderstandings between the U.S. and Soviet Navies — for naval op-

erations in the Persian Gulf. The hotline idea went nowhere — not surprising given the growing tensions between Washington and Tehran over Iran’s nuclear program. But according to Iran expert Barbara Slavin, two consecutive heads of U.S. Central Command — Gen. John Abizaid and Adm. William “Fox” Fallon — were apparently denied permission by the George W. Bush administration to pursue such an agreement. Yet U.S. military commanders did not give up on the concept. In September, the Wall Street Journal reported that a series of “near-miss” encounters between Iranian and U.S. forces had pushed U.S. officials to (again) weigh establishing a military hotline with the Islamic republic. Adm. Mike Mullen reflected that concern, when, just before stepping down as chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff in the
fall, he told a Washington think tank: “We haven’t had a connection with Iran since 1979. Even in the darkest days of the Cold War, we had links to the Soviet Union. We are not talking to Iran, so we don’t understand each other. If something happens, it’s virtually assured that ... there will be a miscalculation which would be extremely dangerous.” Mullen was agnostic about whether the channel should be diplomatic or military-to-military, but he said “any channel would be terrific” in avoiding miscalculation. Astonishingly, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad — while visiting New York in September — endorsed setting up joint warning systems to avoid “unwanted clashes” in the gulf. But, in a sign of Iran’s convoluted domestic politics, Iran’s Revolutionary Guard naval commander, Adm. Ali Fadavi, vetoed the idea. That rejection underlines one key obstacle to a hotline: Iran’s internal conflicts. Iran has two navies: the traditional state navy, which is more professional, and the more reckless Republican Guard navy, which has responsibility for operations in the gulf. With its fleet of speedboats equipped with cruise missiles and mines and its mini-submarines, the Revolutionary Guard is more reckless and prone to confrontation. It is also far better armed than were its counterparts that battled U.S. ships in the gulf tanker war of the 1980s. Yet, given the damage Iran would suffer in a gulf war, the Tehran regime may recognize the need to avoid an accidental conflict. If an Incidents at Sea Agreement or some form of ho-
tline were pursued in private, it might produce results. Which brings us to the second major obstacle: U.S. internal political conflicts. In an election year, when the White House and Republican candidates are trying to out-hawk one another on Iran, the idea of a hotline might become a political hot potato. Yet the campaign atmosphere makes a hotline more necessary than ever, says Trita Parsi, author of “A Single Roll of the Dice: Obama’s Diplomacy With Iran.” As Obama ratchets up economic pressure on Iran and keeps “all options” open, Parsi says, “You have to be careful about whether Iran misinterprets your moves. You need to couple that (threat) with a line of communications, so if there is a misunderstanding, you can deescalate.” Last year, Congress required the Pentagon to assess the merits of an Incidents at Sea Agreement with Iran. That assessment is expected in the next couple of weeks. Such an agreement would not have to apply only to the United States and Iran, but could include other states whose ships ply the gulf. At a time when U.S.-Iranian tensions are soaring, and a gulf war could sink the global economy, isn’t it time to consider the concerns of U.S. military officers about a hotline? They know the risks that grow from lack of communication. If we could talk to the Soviets in the 1970s, shouldn’t we try to do the same with Iran? — Trudy Rubin is a columnist and editorial-board member for the Philadelphia Inquirer.

From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for Jan. 18, 1912: YEARS “Wolves are so nuAGO merous and bold IN 1912 in the Kaw Valley and along the Wakarusa Creek and are committing so many depredations on chickens, geese, turkeys and pigs that the Kaw Valley C.P.A. has decided to have a big wolf round up on Saturday, January 20th. ... Everybody is invited to assist in the wolf slaughter. Boys under sixteen will not be allowed to carry guns. No rifles of larger bore than 22 caliber will be allowed. No dogs will be permitted. Everybody is expected to be in line and ready to move on the enemy at half past nine.” — Compiled by Sarah St. John

Plan ahead To the editor: The Jan. 12 Journal-World editorial noted than a South Lawrence Trafficway interchange at Bob Billings Parkway “probably is needed” and “would provide an important access point to Kansas University,” all of which may be true, but the interchange is the cart before the horse. I urge (and have been urging for 25 or so years) the city traffic planners and the university planners, when they are making grandiose plans for the west end of Bob Billings Parkway, to look also at its east end, where Bob Billings Parkway reverts to plain old two-lane 15th Street. Ask yourselves: How much sense does it make to bring even more traffic on four lanes and “transition” it into two lanes at the Malott Gateway (aka Malott Squeeze Chute)? Before you invite more traffic in, you must have a place for it to go; the sensible outlet would be created by making 15th Street four lanes east of Iowa, joining with a four-lane Naismith Drive both north and south of 15th Street. Good planners plan ahead — even beyond the next fiscal cycle. Bill Mitchell, Lawrence
Real obscenity To the editor: The latest controversy in Afghanistan involves a video of four Marines urinating on the dead bodies of three Taliban terrorists, recently killed by these same Marine snipers. These Marines have been instantly condemned and vilified in our government’s frantic efforts to be “politically correct,” so
as not to offend the Muslim world, especially the Taliban! Really? It is easy for those who have never been in combat to denounce this act. As a Marine Vietnam combat veteran, I understand why this happens in war. In war there are no options, no place for “political correctness!” War is simple, basic: You kill him or he kills you! These Marines have just killed three enemy combatants who were trying to kill them. What are the true obscenities here? I would submit the first obscenity is our government involved in a war they can’t explain or get out of. The second, is our military leadership, who ask young people to die but cannot articulate what they are dying for or why. The third is our spineless, cowardly Congress, who do not hold the military responsible so as not to offend their corporate sponsors of the military-industrial complex. And the last obscenity is we, the American people, who send our kids off to die yet never really question why. Let’s not judge these Marines for expressing their opinion of the Taliban, Afghanistan, and war itself. No one has that right, unless one has walked a mile ... in their boots! Curtis D. Bennett, Lawrence
Owl observation To the editor: The widespread interest in the snowy owls visiting Kansas this winter is wonderful. However, reports from Clinton Lake make it clear that some uninformed observers are endangering these beautiful, exotic owls by approaching the owls much too closely to watch them and take pictures. Admittedly a thrilling personal experience, but what is the effect on the bird? Remember that these birds left their
northern home because of insufficient food. Whether this is due to a crash in the lemming population or to high populations of owls because last year was an exceptionally good breeding year for them is academic. Either scenario results in starving birds flying south hundreds of miles, often arriving here exhausted and emaciated. Feathers hide the emaciation from field observers, but rehabilitators see it when trying to save an injured owl. Sometimes a snowy doesn’t fly when approached because it is too weak; the human approach causes yet more exhausting stress. Responsible birders have a strong code of ethics which all wildlife watchers should follow. Two of the most applicable principles: 1. Promote the welfare of birds and their environment by exercising restraint and caution during observation or photography; 2. Practice common courtesy in contacts with other people. Above all, we want these owls to survive the winter and wing back north in spring. Please, no more thoughtless harassment of our snowy sojourners — give them space.

HIGH SCHOOL BASKETBALL
Tom Keegan firstname.lastname@example.org
KU’s big gains tough to judge A thought camped in my mind and I decided to write it down before it died of loneliness: More than just the Kansas University basketball players have improved this season. The Allen Fieldhouse crowd has gotten even better too. Louder. Prouder. And what could have caused that, other than the team exceeding expectations? Maybe, just maybe, in the final years of the ticket fraud that padded the pockets of folks now serving sentences, the ever-changing faces of those sitting in some of the best seats prevented a sense of community from growing with each game. Maybe, just maybe, donors started sensing they weren’t getting what they paid for and looked with suspicion at those with better seats and wondered how much, if anything, they donated to the Williams Fund. Last year, honesty was restored to the system, but a transition was necessary in order for all the resentment of those who didn’t get what they paid for in previous seasons to fade. The crowd for the Big Monday blowout against Baylor brought it from opening tip to the final horn. The loudmouth in the ball cap who sits near the visiting bench let the refs have it with extra acidity to his tongue, sharper fangs to his ever-pointing index finger. The dunks drew louder roars. The nervous silence that sometimes surfaces when KU falls behind never materialized during the Bears’ short stay ahead on the scoreboard. It’s not easy to say why, but the crowd feels even livelier. Before getting to another question that involves the basketball team, consider philosophical ones that rank behind it in degree of difficulty: What came first, the Jayhawk or the egg? Because he is the only Kansas football player who has played for new coach Charlie Weis, is Notre Dame transfer quarterback Dayne Crist, in a sense, the team’s only returning starter? These questions present a greater challenge than: If Nebraska makes it financially enticing for Kansas to be the first visitor in the opening basketball game played in the 16,000-seat arena set to open in 2013, should KU accept the invitation. Answer: no. The Cornhuskers left the Big 12, remember? The toughest question yet posed: Which player in KU’s cohesive, fast and agile defensive juggernaut of a starting five has improved the most since a year ago? Thomas Robinson, who had four double-doubles and averaged 14.6 minutes last season and has had 13 double-doubles this season and is playing 30.6 minutes a game? Tyshawn Taylor, coming off back-to-back 28-point games and playing with such contagious confidence? Jeff Withey, who suffered from a paint allergy a year ago, now leads the Big 12 in blocked shots, makes players slam on the brakes on their drives to the hoop, has four double-doubles and had nine offensive rebounds against Baylor? Glue guy Travis Releford, so much faster and more explosive than most complementary players? Elijah Johnson, the early favorite to rank as next season’s most improved Jayhawk? You make the call by logging onto KUsports.com and casting your vote.

LAWRENCE HIGH JUNIOR KRISTA COSTA (22) BEATS THE DEFENSE DOWN THE COURT as she scores an easy basket on a fast break during the Lions’ game against Kansas City Schlagle on Tuesday at LHS.
It had been a long six weeks since Lawrence High’s girls basketball team left the locker room after a game with smiles on their faces, indulging in the pleasant aftermath of a victory. The Lions couldn’t help but grin once again Tuesday night following a 56-21 beating of Kansas City Schlagle that snapped a five-game losing skid with an exclamation point. As it turns out, it was Lawrence’s most recent loss — this past Thursday at Olathe South — that planted the seeds for the team’s return to the win column. LHS coach Nick Wood said the 57-43 road setback helped the girls learn that they are capable of competing. “We started to see it last week, that this type of effort was coming and we had it in us,” Wood said. “That was kind of our breakthrough moment.” The Lions (3-5) could also see the development coming along at practices in the days leading up to their home game with the Stallions (3-5), junior guard Anna Wright said after scoring a game-high 12 points. “That made us play harder, and it kind of transferred over to this game,” Wright said. Sophomore forward Kionna Coleman agreed, and said LHS had the right mindset. Please see LHS, page 4B

Three transfers, one goal: win
We’re all here and excited. In our minds, we couldn’t be in a better situation than with coach Weis and the rest of the staff.”
By Matt Tait firstname.lastname@example.org
One by one, they walked into Mrkonic Auditorium looking the part of proud, polished, prepared college football players. In some ways they were newcomers to the Kansas University football program, names we’ve heard but skills we have yet to see. In other ways, they served as the new face for a program that spent the past two seasons desperately seeking an identity. Whatever the case, it was — Kansas clear that transfers Dayne Crist, University quarterJake Heaps and Justin McCay, back Jake Heaps, a each of whom was introduced transfer from BYU to the media at a news conference on Monday, were here for one reason — they believe in Kansas football and head coach Charlie Weis. “None of us expected to be sitting here today in Kansas when we had all committed to different places,” said Heaps, a quarterback from BYU who will be eligible as a junior beginning in 2013. “You don’t go in expecting Heaps that it’s not going to work out. But at the end of the day, things happen for a reason. We’re all here and excited. In our minds, we couldn’t be in a better situation than with coach Weis and the rest of the staff.” Each player chose to come to Kansas for a different reason. For Crist, a former Notre Dame McCay quarterback who was recruited to South Bend, Ind., by Weis, the opportunity to play at KU represented one more shot to live up to the five-star billing he had in high school. It also offered one more opportunity to play for the man he believed could help him get to the NFL. That’s still the

KANSAS UNIVERSITY GUARD NATALIE KNIGHT, LEFT, AND IOWA STATE GUARD LAUREN MANSFIELD (10) CHASE DOWN a loose ball on Jan. 11 at Allen Fieldhouse. The Jayhawks fought to pull out the tough win in double overtime, something KU coach Bonnie Henrickson said her team should get used to doing, especially on the road in the Big 12.
Henrickson on Big 12 play: Nail-biters might be the norm By Matt Tait email@example.com
Check out the way conference play has started for the Kansas University women’s basketball team, and you easily will see why KU coach Bonnie Henrickson is thinking about petitioning the league to change its name. “I’ve said a couple of times this year that we oughta rename ours the one-possession league,” Henrickson said of the Big 12 Conference. “The number of one-possession games there have been already in four games is phenomenal.” Heading into tonight’s 7 p.m. showdown with Oklahoma State in Stillwater, Okla., the Jayhawks (14-2 overall, 3-1 in Big 12 play) have won three of their first four Big 12 games — their best start since the 1999-2000 season — including both road contests. Last Sunday, KU domPlease see FOOTBALL, page 4B inated Missouri, start to finish,
in Columbia, Mo., to pick up its second road victory of the conference season. Should the Jayhawks come out on top tonight, they’ll win their third league road game for the first time in OKLAHOMA years. Kansas has not won STATEMENT? more than two Big 12 games Who: Kansas on the road in (14-2 overall, the past seven 3-1 Big 12) seasons, in- vs. Oklahoma cluding one State (10-3, season with 2-2) no road wins When: 7 p.m. (2007-08) and today two others Where: Still(2008-09 and water, Okla. 2005-06) with TV: n/a just one. Henrickson hardly has been surprised. Throughout the season, after an upset victory at Texas, a heartbreaking loss at home to Kansas State or a double-overtime
nail-biter against Iowa State, Henrickson has emerged with the same message: Embrace the struggle. So far, the Jayhawks have been able to do that, and they’ll look to keep it rolling tonight in a tough environment against a tough team. “The depth is what’s different here,” said Henrickson, referring to how difficult road wins can be to corral. “In our league, there are no nights off. You’ve gotta play as well on the road as you have to play at home to get a win.” Reaching road win No. 3 certainly will not be easy. Oklahoma State (10-3, 2-2) is unbeaten at home this season and has limited opponents to 30.7 percent shooting from the field to rank third in the country in fieldgoal-percentage defense. KU’s improved defense has Please see KU WOMEN, page 3B

Hair and there, Withey changes game for KU
THE DEALS ARE ON
By Gary Bedore firstname.lastname@example.org
Jeff Withey was quick to accept a fashion tip from his boss last weekend. “He (coach Bill Self) wanted me to get a haircut,” Withey, Kansas University’s junior center from San Diego, said with a smile, explaining the new look he brought to Monday’s game against Baylor in Allen Fieldhouse. “It (hair) was too long. It was getting in my eyes. I think you could see that,” added Withey, who had a friend apply scissors to his locks Sunday night. The amount of hair clipped was significant. “I think I had to lose at least three inches,” the 7-footer said of his official height measurement changing after a visit from his barber buddy. “It felt weird tonight (running the court). I could feel the breeze.” Feeling light on his feet, Withey scored 10 points off 3-of-10 shooting and grabbed 10 rebounds in KU’s 92-74 Big Monday victory over the previously undefeated Bears. He also ... Q Went 4-for-4 from the line to up his free-throw percentage to 83.7. Q Made a perfect bounce pass to Tyshawn Taylor that led to an acrobatic layup. Q Plucked three steals and blocked three shots to up his Big 12-leading block total to 56. “It (effective play from Withey) changes our team a lot because we turn into a Baylor-type team and there is height everywhere,” KU junior guard Elijah Johnson said. “T-Rob (Thomas Robinson) brings the strength because he is going to muscle everything through and intimidate people. “If teams are able to make that pass (inside), they still have to go over a 7-footer, who is athletic and can do just about anything. So when we get Jeff going, it really gets a lot of us going, and a lot of people don’t know that. Jeff is a key player to our team, especially with getting us started. When he is on track, it can be a long night for some teams,” Johnson added.

KANSAS UNIVERSITY CENTER JEFF WITHEY (5) MUSCLES his way past Baylor’s Qunicy Acy, right, on Monday in Allen Fieldhouse. When Withey is on, he’s part of a killer inside combo with the 6-10 Robinson, who burned Baylor for 27 points and 14 rebounds in 35 minutes. “Thomas makes the game easier for me, because he’s so strong. He moves everybody out of the way, so I can just go up and rebound,” Withey said. “We knew they (Bears) were long and would be physical. We are pretty big too. I am 7-foot. Thomas is 6-10. Justin (Wesley) is 6-8 and Kevin (Young, 6-8) is a big man also. We match up pretty well.” Withey, who had nine offensive rebounds on a night KU outrebounded BU, 39-24, brought great intensity to the court in his 30-minute stint. “All the coaches tell me I’m too nice, I’m too laid back. Before the game, they try to get me pumped up,” Withey said. “Coach (Kurtis) Townsend is always in my ear saying, ‘Get mad. Go dunk the ball.’ My teammates are always trying
to get me more aggressive. It helps a lot. I try to get into a zone.” He works on controlling the glass at practice. “We have a lot of drills. We get hit with pads, stuff like that just to practice rebounding,” said Withey. He averages 6.2 rebounds and 7.8 points per game. “With coach (Danny) Manning, we’re always going to be a good rebounding team.” Withey’s biggest attribute has always been his defense, most specifically shot-blocking. “Coach wants me to go after everything. If I don’t block it, I’m supposed to alter it,” Withey said. “I’ve always tried to go after the ball.” O Wooden list: Robinson has been named a John R. Wooden Award midseason top 25 candidate, the L.A. Athletic Club announced Tuesday. Others from the Big 12 on the list: Missouri’s Marcus Denmon and Baylor’s Perry Jones.

been a big reason for its hot start. The Jayhawks have held all 16 opponents to 50 percent shooting or less and are among the league leaders in steals. “That’s been a point of emphasis for us all year,” Henrickson said of her team’s defensive success. “We felt like we had some pieces in place and some opportunities (to improve), especially on the defensive glass. That’s where we felt we missed some opportunities last season.” The Jayhawks hold a 30-24 advantage in the all-time series with Oklahoma State, including a 12-10 edge in games played in Stillwater. KU won the teams’ lone meeting last season, 73-66 at OSU, and has won its last two games in Stillwater. Kansas is 13-9 during the Big 12 era versus the Cowgirls.

FSHS sizzles in record-breaking 77-40 win By Jesse Newell email@example.com
At first, Free State girls basketball assistant coach Lauren Kimball didn’t say anything to her players after the game. Later, when asked to speak, a few girls joked with her, telling her that she was too depressed to talk. Kimball, a former Free State standout, watched from the bench Monday night as one of her team’s old records was broken. The Firebirds — helped by a 24-point fourth quarter — set a school record for points in a 77-40 victory Tuesday night over Emporia. “It puts our mark on the school,” Free State senior Jackie Garcia said. “It’s just definitely a good thing with history and proves we worked hard and got it done.” The previous school record of 76 points was set on Feb. 13, 2006, when Kimball was a junior at FSHS. She scored a team-high 18 points in a 76-48 victory over Shawnee Mission North. With Free State’s reserves playing in the final minutes Monday, junior Courtney Parker put in the final bas-

“We definitely came with aggression,” Coleman said after scoring eight points and grabbing six rebounds. Lawrence really began asserting itself in the second quarter, stretching a twopoint lead to a 22-11 advantage in less than four minutes. Christina Haswood drilled a three-pointer on the first play of the second quarter, and LHS kept rolling with a runner by Marissa Pope, backto-back scores (one inside, one outside) from Monica Howard and a driving layup by Wright that was set up by a Bri Anglin pick in the lane. Even though Lawrence would outscore Schlagle 17-4 in the second and head to halftime with a 28-13 lead,
ket to push Free State’s total to 77. “It’s huge, because we have such good individuals,” Free State junior Abbey Casady said. “I think it’s awesome that we can contribute and make a team goal.” The Firebirds had come close to the record twice already this season, scoring 75 points against Shawnee Heights and 72 against Lansing. The victory snapped a three-game losing streak. “We came out and did what we needed to do, and hit shots early in the game,” FSHS coach Bryan Duncan said. Much of Free State’s offense was generated from
its defense, as constant ball pressure and a stingy fullcourt press forced Emporia into frequent mistakes. The Spartans turned it over 24 times, which included 14 giveaways in the first half. Meanwhile, the Firebirds routinely beat the Spartans down the floor for layups on the break. EHS coach Bill Nienstedt was so frustrated with his team’s inability to get back that he called three timeouts in the game’s first 7 1/2 minutes. Free State, which led 30-16 at half, was only able to set the record by being efficient late. The Firebirds had just one turnover after halftime, and its bench players also produced offensively in the fourth quarter. In fact, each of the 11 FSHS players that suited up scored at least two points. “We have a good shooting team,” Duncan said. “And the truth is, some of the kids on the end of our varsity bench who play primarily JV are probably — everybody will tell you — our best pure shooters.” Kennedy Kirkpatrick’s 17
Wood said the last four possessions of the half — the Lions failed to get a shot off and turned the ball over four times — were “atrocious,” and proved they have a lot of things to work on. “We could’ve walked in at halftime having complete control of the game, but we didn’t take care of the ball enough,” the coach said. The LHS players heard about the value of every possession at the break and responded with a 9-for-14 shooting performance in the third quarter, with just one turnover. Wood was pleased to see the Lions getting steals, flying all over the court and putting the game out of reach. “I thought our energy in that third quarter was awesome,” Wood said. That renewed, focused energy showed from the open-
ing minute of the second half, as Coleman scored after rebounding her own miss. Lawrence went on to outscore the Stallions 18-2 in the third with four points apiece in that stretch from Coleman and Mutiyat Hameed, and one basket each from Howard, Bri Anderson, Krista Costa, Wright and Kylie Seaman. Said Wright: “We went more in attack mode and took care of the ball a lot more.” Wood said it wasn’t Lawrence’s best performance of the season, but he liked the balanced production, calling it “a great team win.” Considering LHS had been on the wrong end of such games, losing four in a row by 14 points or more, the Lions were happy to reverse that trend with a blowout victory. It was a much-needed step in the right direction.
It puts our mark on the school. It’s just definitely a good thing with history and proves we worked hard and got it done.” — Free State senior basketball player Jackie Garcia on the school record for points in a game that her team set on Tuesday

goal for Crist, a senior who has one season of eligibility remaining and likely will start the 2012 season at quarterback. But that’s far from the first thing on his mind. “I’m a team guy first, that’s always going to be my M.O.,” Crist said. “I want nothing more than for this team to be successful.” With Weis sitting in a wooden chair about a dozen feet away, Crist, Heaps and McCay took turns answering questions from reporters covering everything from why they chose KU and what they were most excited about, to their personal backgrounds. Their chemistry was evident. Although the trio has yet to play a down together, it was clear through their smiles, comfort and playful banter that they were ready to lead together. “We haven’t practiced yet,” McCay said. “But Jake was my quarterback at the Army (high school all-star) game, and Dayne is my roommate now so we can get real familiar with each other pretty quickly. I like that.” McCay, a wide receiver from Bishop Miege High who left Oklahoma with a hardship waiver, is still waiting word on his eligibility. There’s a chance he’ll be able to play right away and not have to sit out a season. Either way, McCay said he was happy to be at KU, a school he’s known about since his days playing youth football, a school he briefly visited as a senior at Miege. “I wouldn’t call it a second chance, but more of an op-
— Kansas University quarterback Dayne Crist, who transferred to KU from Notre Dame portunity,” he said of coming to Kansas. “We all wanted the same thing. We probably didn’t talk to each other, but we knew what we wanted and why we came here. They have great coaches, as in coach Weis. We all know what he does and what we can do to try to help Kansas football.” While McCay’s words spoke for all three players, he was off on one thing: Crist and Heaps actually spent a substantial amount of time talking about the idea of coming to KU together. No conversation they had was more entertaining than the one that took place on Dec. 22, when the two QBs committed to KU within a couple of hours of each other. At the time, many KU fans called it the biggest recruiting day in program history. They weren’t the only ones excited. “When I knew that this was where I wanted to be and where my heart was, after calling coach Weis and some of the other coaches, (Heaps) was the next guy that I called,” Crist said. “I said, ‘Hey man, I committed. What are you waiting for?’ I put a little pressure on him. It was nice, though. It was an exciting day for both of us. I know what it was like for me, and I can only imagine what it was like for Jake, his wife and his whole family. It was something that I will always remember.”

L AWRENCE J OURNAL -W ORLD
Soup: Follow your tastes, not a recipe Q:
My grandmother used to always make soups from different ingredients that she just had on hand. I don’t even know where to begin. Can you help?
Because January is National Soup Month and the cold winter winds also gusted in last week, there’s no better time then now to talk about making soup. Utah State University developed a “Create a Soup” handout, adapted from “How to Cook Without a Book” by Pam Anderson, that uses a mix-and-match approach to making an easy, economical, satisfying and nourishing family meal of soup. Rather than using a specific recipe, you can create a tasty soup from simple foods. Just choose an item from each category below and follow the directions. Use your imagination! Each pot of soup serves four adults. Step 1: Choose one fat — 2 tablespoons oil (vegetable, canola, olive), butter or margarine Step 2: Add 1 medium chopped onion Step 3: Choose one or more vegetables (2-3 cups, chopped) — celery, green pepper, green beans, carrots, peas, corn, zucchini, squash, mushrooms, cauliflower, broccoli, cabbage, etc. (fresh, canned, or frozen) Step 4: Choose one protein — 1 pound beef, chicken, ham, sausage, etc., or 1 (16-ounce) can beef, chicken or ham, or 1 (16-ounce) can beans (pinto, kidney, black, white, chick peas, hominy, etc.), or 1 cup grated cheese. Step 5: Choose one starch — 3 to 4 cups diced potatoes or 2 (16-ounce) cans beans (pinto, kidney, black, white,

chick peas, hominy, etc.) or 4 ounces egg noodles, macaroni or other pasta, or 1/2 cup uncooked rice Step 6: Choose a broth (you need 4 cups) — 2 (16-ounce) cans chicken, beef, and/or vegetable broth, or 4 cups water and chicken, beef, or vegetable bouillon, or 1 can crushed or diced tomatoes and 3 cups water, or 4 cups milk and chicken bouillon, or any combination to make 1 quart Step 7: Choose one or more seasonings — 1 to 2 teaspoons dried herbs (oregano, basil, cumin, chili powder, thyme, rosemary, parsley, etc.), bay leaf, 1 to 2 tablespoons fresh herbs, minced garlic Heat fat in large soup pot. Add onion and cook until tender. Add remaining ingredients (except fresh herbs). Partially cover pot and simmer until meat is cooked and starch and vegetables are tender (about 20 to 30 minutes). Add fresh herbs. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Simmer another 5 minutes. Serve. Combination suggestions:
Chicken and rice soup — combine onion, celery, carrots, chicken, rice, chicken broth, rosemary, parsley and garlic.
Beef and vegetable soup — combine onion, potatoes,
carrots, celery, beef, crushed tomatoes, beef broth, oregano, basil, parsley and bay leaf.
Black bean and corn soup — combine onion, green pepper, corn, green chilies, black beans, rice, crushed tomatoes, chicken broth, oregano, cumin, chili powder, cilantro and garlic.
Cream of broccoli soup — combine onion, broccoli, celery, cheese, milk, chicken bouillon and garlic. Mash or blend together. Here’s another soup that my dear friend Sandy Kling, from Belleville, shared with me that is super quick and easy (especially if you already have frozen crumbled hamburger that’s been browned, drained and rinsed.) In fact, I will often give my college son a “survival bag” of frozen browned, crumbled hamburger that is ready to use in soups, tacos, sloppy joes, spaghetti, etc. I have discovered that if the hamburger is already browned, he is much more likely to make meals at home. I just brown five pounds of crumbled hamburger at a time, drain and rinse it. Then, I spread it out in single layers on two jelly roll pans covered with parchment paper and stick it in the freezer. After it is frozen, I bring it back out and break the crumbles apart and put it in two freezer bags and date them. Then he can scoop out as much as he wants. It works really well. He’s always telling me “Mom, I’m out of hamburger” (hint, hint). Obviously, you can do the same thing with ground turkey, pork or sausage. To add to the “survival bag,” I will sometimes include the rest of the shelf-ready ingredients below and I’ve instant-

Grease a 12-muffin tin. 2. In a small bowl, thoroughly combine the flour, cornmeal, baking powder, salt and sugar. In a large bowl, whisk the egg, melted butter and oil until well blended. Stir in the warm milk. Add the dry ingredients to the egg mixture and stir until blended. Fold in blueberries. 3. Spoon batter into muffin tin. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the edges of the muffins are golden and a toothpick comes out clean when inserted into the center. Remove from tin and cool a little before serving.

It’s an apt description for this time of year, when even apples are out of season and virtually every other fruit comes from another time zone, if not another hemisphere. The cure for a cook’s coldweather blues, however, can be found a few aisles over from fresh produce: Winter is frozen fruit’s time to shine. Right out of the bag, frozen fruits are great for snacking, and they are a favored ingredient in breakfast smoothies. But with a little more effort, they can liven up a cake or a batch of muffins, lend a sunny sweetness to savory dishes. Frozen has some distinct advantages over out-of-season fresh fruit. Bob Barnhouse, vice president of operations for Dole’s frozen division, explained that fresh fruit destined for faraway markets often is picked underripe, and can spend weeks reaching its destination. “With frozen,” he said, “we pick it at the peak of the season, and then usually process it within 24 hours.” The cleaned and sorted fruit is conveyed into a tunnel, where the circulating air is about 30 degrees below zero. Within 20 minutes the fruit itself has been cooled to zero degrees. Roland Mesnier, White House pastry chef from 1979 to 2004, is a big fan of frozen fruit, especially flash-frozen mangos, which he uses with fresh apples to make winter charlottes. “Blueberries freeze very well,” he added, and could be used in muffins, “or in a cobbler with frozen peaches.” His highest praise is reserved for frozen raspberries: He likes to use them — straight out of the freezer — as a garnish for almost any dessert.

Start your week with bubble and squeak By Sarah Henning email@example.com
Honestly, I just thought the name of this recipe was cute and had to use it for a Meatless Monday. Apparently, I’d gone through my whole life and had never heard of this British dish, so named for the sound the veggies make while being cooked. It’s basically a giant potato pancake with veggies in it so that it sort of resembles a frittata without the eggs. It’s hearty and healthy and would work really well for a weeknight dinner. Especially on a game night Monday.

Continue cooking until the bottom is browned and the potatoes are heated through, about 8 more minutes. Serve warm. — Recipe from www.wholefoodsmarket.com.
Ghee, whiz: what’s better than butter? By J.M. Hirsch AP Food Editor
Why not just use butter? Fair question, especially since ghee is going to be more trouble to find (it’s hidden in your grocer’s international or natural foods aisles) and you’ll pay way more for it ($5 or more for a 7 1/2-ounce jar). Despite that, it’s an easy answer — because ghee is a rich indulgence that is so totally worth the effort and expense. Ghee is a form of clarified butter. Which means it is butter that was heated until the milk solids separated from the liquid. Then it was heated some more, until the liquid evaporated and the solids began to brown. The result is a thick yellow-brown paste with a nutty and intensely — Are you ready? — buttery flavor. But it’s true. This is butter on steroids. And yes, it’s easy to make your own. And no, most of us won’t. Ghee originated in India, where the heat spoils conventional butter. Clarifying it prolongs its unrefrigerated life from a couple weeks to many months. When to use it? Given the price, not every day. But this is the stuff to reach for when you want to be seriously slapped around by buttery goodness. As in making the very best popcorn. Ever. Here’s why: Not only is the flavor of ghee richer than standard butter, it also has no water. Butter is 15 percent water; that water makes popcorn soggy. Use ghee and you get rich flavor, not wet kernels. For more ideas for using

Let’s have a quick show of hands among the dietconscious: Who is craving a plain baked chicken breast right now? Exactly. No one. Chicken breasts au naturel don’t ring my bells either, so I’m always looking for ways to pair chicken with flavor detonators in order to have myself a real meal. One of my favorite ways to enjoy chicken is to dispense with the breasts altogether. And since I’m a thigh man, I opt to use chicken thighs instead. Yes, it’s true that the thigh is fattier than the breast — about 8 grams per 4-ounce cooked portion — but the fat brings with it the extra zing and moisture breasts can so often lack. Plus, the dark meat of the thigh contains the nutritional jackpot of more iron and twice the zinc of white meat. Better yet, you’ll be saving more than 400 calories a serving here, compared to a classically prepared chicken dish like coq au vin. Traditional versions of that dish pack 781 calories and 68 grams of fat per serving. Mine? Just 338 calories and 9 grams of fat. The braising liquid uses something that’s probably been residing, forgotten, in the back of your liquor cabinet since the days of the Nixon administration: sweet red vermouth (used mostly for Manhattans). Vermouth

wow, that was a good choice. I also had a few strawberries in the refrigerator that were about to be past their prime, so I decided to make a little strawberry syrup topping. I figured if it failed all I was out was some yogurt I didn’t buy (that is how I choose to remember it) anyway, and some clementines that were about to die in the bowl. It was a low-risk project.
Clementine Yogurt Cake with Macerated Strawberry Syrup 1 1/2 cups flour 2 teaspoons baking powder 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt 1 cup plain non-fat yogurt 3/4 cup + 1/3 cup sugar, divided 3 eggs 3 teaspoons orange or clementine zest 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract 1/3 cup vegetable oil 1/3 cup freshly squeezed clementine or orange juice For the glaze: 1 cup confectioners’ sugar 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice For the syrup: 3/4 cup sugar 6 large strawberries 1/3 cup water 1 teaspoon lemon juice or clementine juice Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine the flour, baking powder, and salt in one bowl and the eggs, sugar, zest, vanilla and yogurt in another. Whisk the wet ingredients together and then slowly add the flour mixture in, stirring constantly.
Then fold in the vegetable oil and pour the batter into a greased and floured loaf pan. Bake for 50 minutes to an hour, or until a toothpick comes out mostly clean. It’s okay to underbake this a little, by the way. Meanwhile, cook the remaining 1/3 cup sugar and the 1/3 cup of clementine juice in a small saucepan over medium heat until the sugar is dissolved. Cut the strawberries into small pieces and stir them in with the water, sugar and lemon juice, Bring to a rolling boil and stir occasionally for five minutes, then turn the heat down to medium low and let the mixture continue to cook and reduce until it becomes syrupy, stirring occasionally, about 20 minutes. Then use a potato masher to smash the strawberries into smaller pieces, if necessary. When the cake is done, remove it from the oven and let it stand for a few minutes. Then pour the sugar/citrus mixture over it. When it’s cooled, turn it upside down onto a platter. Full disclosure: my cake poofed up and wasn’t flat, and also got rather dark on top, so I used a serrated knife to cut it down so it would lay flat on the platter and to remove the dark crust. Then mix up your confectioner’s sugar glaze and pour it over. Serve in slices and pour the strawberry syrup over the top. It’s a pretty cake and easy to do. You could use whatever fruit or citrus you have laying around or pour chocolate or whipped cream on top. And even though most of us at dinner were not dessert-y types, that cake is miraculously almost gone, so you tell me. — Read more of Megan Stuke’s Flying Fork blog at Lawrence.com.

THE FLYING FORK
a blog by Megan Stuke
Mystery yogurt redeems itself A while back I was doing “the big shop” at Walmart, toddler in tow, in preparation for a party we were hosting. It didn’t go so well. Johnny was cranky and wanted out of there. I had groceries, diapers, after-Christmas sale items and a kitchen sink in my basket. My cart overfloweth. (Yes, I bought a bunch of crap at Walmart. Shaddup.) In the process of checking out, the checker dropped and broke a bottle of red wine vinegar. That smelled great. Some chaos ensued in the scramble to clean it up, finish checking out my gargantuan order, and find a way to shove it all back in the cart and save room for the child. So, I wasn’t paying really great attention to the details of my bags, as you can imagine. When I got home I had a couple of items in my possession that I was sure weren’t mine. Don’t ask me whose they were or if I paid for them or someone else did, but it irritated me to no end. What was I going to do, for example, with a quart of fat-free plain yogurt? Plain yogurt? It’s not something I have a lot of use for. And fat-free? Blech. Still, I wasn’t going to make the effort to dig the receipt out of the trash or take the stuff back to Walmart, so there it sat in my refrigerator, taunting me, laughing at me, making a mockery of my limited refrigerator space. I needed to find a use for it, if for no other reason than to get it out of my sight. We had some friends over for dinner on Saturday night and I decided I should have a little dessert at the ready, on the off chance that someone might want a sweet at the end of the meal. We usually prefer to polish off our meals with an extra glass of wine and skip the dessert, but hey, I had the time and, well, I had some yogurt to use. I looked around for dessert recipes that included plain yogurt and they all looked a little “meh,” until I found some people discussing the merits of a thing called yogurt cake. It looked like pound cake to me, but it didn’t require nine sticks of butter like most pound cakes do, so I figured I’d try my hand. You guys, it was amazing. Like, even my staunch hates-dessertunless-it’s-brownies husband liked it and commented on its moistness. I kind of combined several recipes according to what ingredients I had on hand and what appealed to my taste preferences. I had a lot of clementines that were on their last legs and I really wanted to use them up, so I went with those instead of the lemons most of the yogurt cake recipes called for, and Please see YOGURT, page 7B

FROM LEFT ARE THE Savory Green Smoothie, Spa Smoothie and the Kick Start Smoothie. Smoothies are a tasty and healthy way to stick to a weight-loss plan.
Whip up a figure-friendly treat in the blender By Sarah Henning firstname.lastname@example.org
Blend, baby, blend. If you’ve set dietary goals for yourself in the new year, your best friend might just be your blender. Smoothies are an easy way to achieve, one frothy sip at a time. Whether you want to lose weight, gain weight, add veggies, add fruits, get more fiber, get more protein or break your kids (or yourself) of unhealthy soft drinks, there’s a smoothie for you. Karen Duggan, a certified nutrition consultant, says smoothies are one of the first weapons for better dietary health that she introduces to clients in and around Lawrence. One Saturday a month, she even serves up smoothies to college kids and community members at Baker University, where anyone can come and eat brunch on Saturdays. She’s especially fond of adding dark, leafy greens such as kale, spinach and chard to smoothies with a fruit base. “It’s a great way to get some dark leafy greens into your diet. People sometimes have a difficult time eating them. But you never know they’re in a smoothie,” says Duggan, of Overbrook. “I just love how a smoothie enables you to get all the colors of the rainbow and eat your dark leafy greens. You get lots of good nutrition pretty economically without
any preservatives and additives and chemicals and all that. And they don’t need sugar either.” Duggan says this tactic is especially useful with children. Add some dark berries, or some cocoa and your kids won’t even know there’s spinach or kale in the smoothie. But it works for adults, too. Her basic smoothie for both young children and adults? Frozen banana, pure apple juice, dark leafy greens and an optional handful of blueberries if going green is a deterrent. “I work with a lot of young moms and they’ll go, ‘My kids won’t eat anything green.’ Well, throw in blueberries, and then it turns it purple and then they won’t know it’s green,” Duggan said. “That three-ingredient one is where I encourage people to start and that’s what I use at the college campus. The frozen banana gives it that thickness that people like in smoothies.” Local Burger owner Hilary Brown said ingredients are everything when talking smoothies. Like Duggan, she likes them as pure as possible, avoiding adding anything too heavy. Unlike Duggan, she prefers a base of nondairy milk to juice. From there, the sky’s the limit and the additions are unending. She allows customers at Local Burger, 714 Vt., to add in supplements, including coconut oil (which has

And then fresh fruits or real organic cocoa. ...

‘CSI’ star prepares for departure Twelve years on television is an eternity. Marg Helgenberger will leave “CSI” (9 p.m., CBS) after two more episodes, beginning tonight. Her character, Catherine Willows, has been part of the forensics series since it debuted in 2000, outlasting male leads William Petersen and Laurence Fishburne. ‘‘CSI” has long been compared to “Law & Order,” another long-running procedural franchise that spawned successful spinoffs and all but dominated its network’s schedule. But to many, “CSI” will always be associated with Grissom and Willows. Unlike “Law & Order,” it has been affected by its revolving door of lead characters. And it’s highly doubtful that “CSI” will run as long as “Law & Order.” Helgenberger will also appear on “Late Show With David Letterman” tonight.
Now in its 11th season, “American Idol” (7 p.m., Fox) shows little sign of flagging. To the surprise of many, it has changed personnel without missing a beat. It has persevered, even thrived in spite of Paula Abdul’s and Simon Cowell’s departures. In fact, Cowell’s “X Factor” was received with less than rapturous reviews and ratings, while “Idol’s” new judges, Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez, adjusted quite naturally to their roles. Competing programs, including “The Voice,” ‘‘America’s Got Talent” and “X Factor,” have never approached “Idol” in audience size. But their combined presence could contribute to a sense of talent show fatigue. And that could eventually contribute to the decline of “Idol.” On the other hand, too much of a good (or a bad) thing is rarely a problem in reality television.
Far from the field of singing competition, “Greatest Tank Battles” (9 p.m., Military) spends 10 weekly episodes recalling mechanized warfare from World War I onward. It’s nice to see that somebody’s still broadcasting history programming. Last year, the History Channel got the highest ratings in its history by ignoring it.
Speaking of history, “NOVA” (8 p.m., PBS) presents “3-D Spies of WWII.” It recalls how photo and optics experts from British universities and Hollywood studios compiled thousands of photographs to create 3-D images of potential targets for Allied bombers.
S. Epatha Merkerson (“Law & Order”) hosts “Find Our Missing” (9 p.m., TVOne), documenting missing persons cases involving black men, women and children, who are generally ignored by the news media.
Tonight’s other highlights
Zooey Deschanel stars in the 2009 romance “(500) Days of Summer” (7 p.m., E!).
Twin brides plus one murder doesn’t add up on “Harry’s Law” (8 p.m., NBC). Jean Smart guest-stars.
Harry Connick Jr. guest-stars on “Law & Order: SVU” (9 p.m., NBC).
Daniel’s big proposal on “Revenge” (9 p.m., ABC).
“True Life: I Have Diabetes” (10 p.m., MTV).

Now arrange the circled letters to form the surprise answer, as suggested by the above cartoon.
Dear Annie: My girlfriend broke up with me in April because she wanted to date another guy. Over the summer, she sent me random emails and text messages about various things, a few of which I answered out of politeness. In September, we both attended the funeral of a mutual friend. I let her know that I wasn’t totally over her, but I was doing OK in her presence. She then said that she had broken up with the other guy and that she missed all the things we did, still loved me and wanted a relationship. A week later, she called to say that she had spoken to her counselor and that all she could offer me at this time was friendship. She then invited the other guy back into her life as “a friend.” But when I checked her Facebook page, I learned she had been having him over to her house every week. I finally got angry, and we had a blowup. Now she says her counselor told her that “men can’t just be friends.” She emailed, telling me that we need to move on and that she hopes to see me at my upcoming school reunion. I don’t want to see this woman again, ever. She used me and lied to me. She hurt me more the second time than she did the first. She has no business coming to
